I've just finished a Minimal Point Run of SMBC with Sophia! 1,100 is the lowest score that I could manage (1000 technically, see video for details). From the video description: This is a challenge run for Super Mario Bros Crossover. The goal is to clear the game with the lowest possible score. This run was done with SOPHIA, I may do other runs for the other characters at another point in time. Important Information: 1) every time-score left over when you touch a flag is worth 50 points. 2) touching a flag with 1, 3 or 6 as the single digit of your time-score causes fireworks, each firework is worth lots of points 3) Touching the very bottom of the flag awards 100 points 4) the lowest amount of points possible per flag is 200 (2 "seconds" & touching the bottom) 5) don't break bricks, that awards 50 points per brick 6) the following actions DON'T award points: damaging enemies without killing them, touching the axe at the end, taking warps, popping mushrooms out of the boxes (just don't take the mushroom). Notes: In this run I messed up pretty bad at 8-1. I touched the flag with 4 seconds instead of 2. I decided to leave it in though because 8-1 is long and I wanted to move on. The lowest score I've found technically is 1,000 (subtract the 100 points for the two extra seconds). I'm not sure if this is really the lowest score for SMBC/Sophia, I probably missed some sort of trick. This is Bass' run: 6,000 Pts. "First of all 2.0 is here meaning some characters (like SOPHIA) no longer start with their useful upgrades. 8-4 Bowser is a big problem for most characters which is why this run is 5k pts (killing Bowser = 5k) over the previous run. Bass is not as overpowered as 1.2 Sophia, she could easily negate the whole encounter by climbing on the walls and ceiling, without a mushroom. I did not feel like trying to maneuver through him to get the axe, so I took 5k extra pts. I later realized, with one mushroom (1k pts.) I can still negate Bowser and I'll also have access to weapons (all weapons pickups = 0 pts.) which might make other parts easier. Taking the mushroom means you can probably end with 2k pts. total, using invincibility after taking a hit to pass Bowser. Of course finding a way past Bowser will give you the ultimate score, 1k pts. Bass has to take the ceiling route in 1-2 because he can't fit under the blocks. In a couple levels (1-1, 4-1) I mess around and goof off, because I need to waste time anyway. I have to end every flag-level at 2 seconds."
