A simple, but hard platformer based on a movie of the same name.

Game objectives

  • Emulator used: FCEUX 2.1.4
  • No Continues/Deaths
  • Fastest Time
  • Contains Elevator Action


I started this run because VBA is undergoing an update/upgrade. I chosed this run because the AVGN reviewed it. This game took a week or so to TAS. Since all the levels feature alot of walking, I tried jumping to make the movie less boring.

Stage by stage comments


The game starts off in a hotel where everyone wants you dead. I spent some frames to obtain the "DART GUN" so that I could avoid taking damage when returning to the elevator. I also obtained the "PEARL NECKLACE" but didn't use them. I took damage twice in this level to preserve ammo. I also obtained the "GUN" which I used to knock out a fat guy and 2 chefs. The fat guy must be KOed or he'll grab and kill you. The chefs block my path, and jumping over them is slower, so they must also be KOed.


Once again, everyone wants you dead. I avoid the bat wielding men as they inflict 2 points of damage. I grabbed a "GUN" which was used to KO 2 birds and 2 men. I took damage at the rat to lose only 1 HP instead of 2, as I need that extra health.


There's these pointless rooms with keys in them that are supposed to be shortcuts, but I can't get them to work. The paint bucket is supposed to be used to KO Marv, but I used it to walk past him. The bell gives me invincibility, but I don't need it, so I didn't grab it. I hopped around like mad because walking the entire time is too boring.


I leap vertically up a giant Christmas Tree while being chased by Harry & Marv. I could've moved around while leaping, but I would've wasted frames, so I jumped straight up. I knock down the criminal duo using pigeon feed.

Possible Improvement: Better Positioning Horizontally Suggested Screenshot: Some frame in the last battle

DarkKobold: This TAS was pretty dry, and had a pretty poor response. I can see why, this is just a bland game choice, and thus, am rejecting it for that.
