Elmo loves silly speedruns.

Elmo’s game has surprisingly decent graphics and sound, with music and voices directly from the show.

Elmo’s game controls decently, and the ONLY thing that saves this game from being a silly meme run is some interesting tech using the N64’s control stick calibration “glitch” that allows Elmo to run like Sonic through these harrowing mazes of numbers.

Elmo’s game is still a terrible speedrun, even with all this said.  Honestly, Elmo’s game shouldn’t be speedrun, but Elmo won’t judge.
