Paulo - some nice finds there on ways to get through some of the stages quicker.

I particularly liked on stage 2 how walking down one of the ladders, after getting the ring, improves the timing by removing the bounce time from the equation. Your alternate descent drop point after that also saves time. The riding of the mine cart to the diamond area certainly saved frames and improved the timing nicely for the ledge drop off after collecting the diamond.

Interestingly you could also have shaved a few more frames off your time again on the mine cart sequence. When you've come down the two descents in the mine-cart, while going to the right, when you jumped to grab the hook you let the 2nd mine cart go under you before dropping off. If you dropped off the hook before the 2nd cart goes under you, walked a few paces and then jump over the cart before dropping down the ladder hole. This would also improve the timing for getting into the mine cart again on the bottom level as you had to walk quite a way before you got back into the cart on your 35.000 frame game. :)

Well done finding a way past the black bird and disappearing floor near the end of the game without having to wait for the 2nd sequence of the disappearing floor.

Lastly, congratulations on getting a non-death completion with an almost perfect random fruit selection on stage 1. Every time I got a near perfect random fruit selection, I always seemed to manage to waste it by dying late in the game. :(

Cheers,
BeeJay.

Here is the final scoreboard (and Round1+Round2). Sorry for the time I needed to finish this task, real life business.
I missed the two strongest inp yesterday night when I updated with the data available half an hour before timeout: TRB wins the round with a last minute game, with almost all the tricks together in a single game. Very cool to watch (by the way, what if you missed the connection yesterday? :wink: )

Thanks for enjoying the INP, but I missed one life in stage 2... too bad. At least I played a bit aggressively in the whole game.

Congratulations to Paulo Valmir and to the other players too. Other excellent game for time attacks.

I started watching INPs / studying only in the last few days, and played in the last day, to put all together! That's because I tried until the last hours on Saturday, and I'd like to do a no-miss run.
