It reminds me of a Metroid & Ecco the Dolphin inspired game from way back when called Aquaria. A few control and collision bugs here and there in FCEUX and unfortunately I don't have real hardware to test it on, but other than the quirks I liked it. The shooting is quite fun to play around with and has given me a few ideas. Music is nice too and fits the water setting.

I'll have to check out Aquaria, sounds pretty fun.

what's weird is i ran into the same kinda collision bugs when playing on fceux and bizhawk on my pc,
BUT
i haven't ran into any yet running fceumm on my nes classic.

*shrug*

p.s. - any sort of artwork for this i could use for the game on the classic's menu?
Unlikely as I don't have an NES Classic Edition to experiment with, you or someone else can make one though if they so choose, or I may take a look if you can link me to a template but I don't really have the time currently to dedicate to making one so it would be a when I have time sorta thing. My next game though I am considering doing boxart for so may also consider doing NES Classic Edition menu art if there's enough demand for it otherwise it'll probably once again be a roll your own basis.

Not bad, never would I have ever imagined someone would try and speedrun it, let alone do it so quickly. LOL.

Neat game, really liked it! It runs fine on my pal nes aswell :)
I used it to test my unrom512 boards and it works great.

Great to hear it works on PAL systems as I only had US and Japanese NTSC units to test on and also glad to hear it works on UNROM-512 carts as currently I can only test on my PowerPak. Were these InfiniteNESLives UNROM-512 carts, your own custom wireup, or another PCB maker's boards? Also, the image you tried to post didn't seem to go through.

Hmm, I'll try to fix it later.
I'm using my own board that I've designed from available schematics

Fantastic to hear it works using the UNROM-512 specifications. I thought about ordering one of CaitSith's boards off of OSH Park but felt they wanted too much for the production of it for me to just experiment with and it wasn't critical for testing anyhow just yet but I did want to test on my NOAC based famiclone which is the only unit I can't test on yet.

Yeah, my board is based on the same schematic I think. The problem with oshpark is that they don't make pcbs with the correct thickness. Nes boards are 1.2mm thick, osh only make 1.6.
