    I was a little worried that this bounty would die without any entries! As of 12/30/2004, I had received exactly ZERO submissions for this game. Luckily, on the final day, someone finally stepped up to the plate. That someone was Martin Bedard.

    It's my great pleasure to congratulate Martin on his complete game of \"Super Mario All-Stars: The Lost Levels\". With this run, he claims the full $150.00 prize, and also sets an innaugural record of 46:59 for the fastest warp-free completion of the game using Luigi (there's also a separate record category for Mario, which has no times).

    I've listed Martin's splits for each world below. Note that under the rules of this bounty, survival was all that mattered, so Martin decided to take it slow and safe during some levels. I shudder to think what he could have done if he was actually playing for speed! :?

    World 1 - 02:22
    World 2 - 05:02
    World 3 - 08:08
    World 4 - 11:24 (1st death on World 4-4)
    World 5 - 14:44
    World 6 - 18:50 (2nd death on World 6-3)
    World 7 - 22:51 (3rd death on World 7-4)
    World 8 - 28:14 (4th death on World 8-4. Yet another castle death! Martin now has to be perfect in order to finish within the 5-life limit for this bounty...)
    World 9 - 31:25
    World A - 34:31
    World B - 38:11
    World C - 42:13
    World D - 46:59

    The most enjoyable part of watching this run was worlds 9 through 'D', where Martin was perfect despite the pressure of playing on the LAST of his 5 lifes. I can only imagine what must have been going through Martin's mind as he went through several close calls during these levels. Believe me, the action had me on the edge of my seat. DEFINITELY worth the price of admission! Nice going! :)

    Thanks for thw write up Tom. Like Tom said, I took my time on those last levels, plus I feel most of my deaths were ********. Hope to improve this soon and have it availible online.

    I showed my friends this topic. Their responses ranged from \"Holy ****!\" to \"Go Outside!\" I'd say you've impressed them, Martin. ;)

    Seriously, well done. I had practiced on an emulator, but I was a long ways off from completing the entire game.

    Congratulations on winning this bounty Martin! Your run is very impressive even with the deaths. I considered trying for this bounty when it was first announced, but I never did get around to it. Anyway, excellent work!

    he played worlds 9-D on his last man? nice.

    Way to go...cuz I remember playing through the lost levels a couple times and easily using 20+ men.

    It's definitely one where you need to play it at least a few times to memorize what moves to do in certain spots...especially with the hammer brothers and some fireball combos.
