Gimmick! is a very short game that was only released in Japan and Europe. It's about a small green creature who can summon stars to help him defeat monsters and to use them as platforms to reach high places and travel fast.

Aglar improves on the previous submission by about 33 seconds. Improvements come from new and increased glitch abuse, better precision, and using lots of new strategies.

This movie here does not collect the special items required to access the secret 7th level which the other Gimmick!-run does.

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.

Webmasters, please don't link directly to the files. Link to this page or the front page instead.
