There's not much to say for this short game. The obstacle course is skippable without losing any lives so obviously I crash as early as possible. It's possible to complete the game without hitting the brakes at all so that's what I did. I'd say the hardest part of this run is consistently delivering the newspaper on a particular kind of house unit; so I wound up throwing two papers at those ones to ensure getting the perfect delivery. Other than that, I kinda wished I vandalized more homes. =/

This run isn't perfect so I'd guess that maybe 1-2 secs. can be shaved off with perfect execution and some good luck with some of the lagtastic portions in the weekend.
