(like the initial speedrun boost when switching to Captain Viridian during level that gives you a chance to turn upside down before the timer starts)
This doesn't need to change. It may not be intentional, but it adds depth and difficulty to speedrunning.
You can't even do it on every level.
Viridian isn't very good. He needs that.
Ok. Well, I guess it can be counted as a legit trick.
Viridian's record times on leaderboards just made me scratch my head a bit before I found the trick. I was about 0.50 seconds behind the #1 time on many levels until I finally got it on 2-5x.
