Author's comments and explanations:
This TAS of The Terminator for SEGA Genesis uses many tricks and abilities that none of us ever knew Kyle Reese could do, such as warping through enemies and jumping over terminators that obviously exceed Kyle's height. This movie uses unsuspecting tricks that could not be easily could be done on a real SEGA Genesis.

This game is short, it only consists of 4 levels (5 if you count the TechNoir) Here are what this TAS details are:

-Aims for fastest time

-Abuses Programing Errors in the Game

-Manipulates luck

-Takes Damage to save time

-Plays on hardest difficulty


-Until I get the Uzi 9mm it's fastest to jump over the HK's, however it's sometimes impossible because some of them are smart enough to immediately move and then they throw me off and I get hit. These ones I kill with hand grenades.

-Jumping before the robot that fires an Uzi disables it's shots until you get the Uzi (behind it, gotten by jumping behind it: glitch) because I had low heath.

-I lost a few frames from enemies spawning on the 1st level.

Emulator settings: Default
