[TAS] NES Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: The Manhattan Project by Geesk in 29:39.64
This is a tool-assisted speedrun. For more information, see http://tasvideos.org/3872M.html. TAS originally published on 2018-12-30.
The Turtles' vacation is interrupted when Shredder kidnaps April O'Neil and makes Manhattan Island float. In the third NES game of the series, the Turtles have special attacks that differ in power and speed. The special attack consumes one life point, however, unless there is only one life point remaining.
This run improves the previous one (http://tasvideos.org/983M.html) by nearly one minute. Often controlling two of the Turtles at once--usually Raphael and Donatello--Geesk manipulates health, score, and enemy positioning to achieve the time savings.
