So, I moderate the barnstorming page on speedrun.com and recently we had a new player come out and take 3 records quickly, one of which he keeps improving. I personally see nothing wrong with the scores, but another member is claiming they may be too good to be true, so I figured I'd come and ask the atari experts here. I'll leave a link to the run, which is on the expert/A difficulty of game 1 with a score of 33.22

The score isnt out of the realm of impossibility. According to this reddit thread, at least two other humans and a TAS have achieved faster times.

Additionally, a barn counting glitch (not exploited in the video), makes it possible to achieve times in the sub 16 second range.

that post is about the novice difficulty though, this score is for expert mode (unless I missed part of the post talking about expert mode) and the barn counting glitch has its own leaderboard for speedrun.com

watching the video, it looks legit to me- i've seen other playthroughs where folks (that arent todd rogers) hit in the 32-33 second range on this difficulty setting.
