A Boy and His Blob (NES) was released in Janurary of 1989, developed by David Crane. The game features the boy, and his trusty blob friend. The blob transforms into different things when you gibe it different flavoured jelly beans. These transformations help you progress through the game in a normal playthrough...but of course, this is not a normal playthrough.

Game Objectives

  • Emulator used: FCEUX 2.1.5
  • Aims for fastest time
  • Uses game-breaking glitches


This run was started when we decided to take a look at this game because it was short and we wanted something to try. Lets just say, we found something big.

This is an improvement of 14.94 seconds (898 frames) over the previously published movie by Aglar. All of the improvements come from the new route that we used, I won't spoil anything here though, watch and see for yourself! :)

Special Thanks

We would like to thank Aglar for his previous run, and all other TASers of this game for their past efforts.

Enjoy the run!

(Glitchy TAS of the year?)

Flygon: Added the full HD encode.

klmz: Claimed for judging.

sgrunt: Replaced the submission file as detailed here.

Flygon: I remember the days where I could set this to "Published" inside the movie status and call it a day, despite not filling in the Publication form. It's no wonder I'm reduced to introducing sexy looking YouTube encodes instead. Improved sexiness pending 60fps support.

Flygon: Updated the YouTube module with the even faster TAS that, at the time of writing, is still pending for either Grunt or DarkKobold to shove into the submission. Get a hurry on you two!

mmbossman: Updated the submission file because of Aglar's improvements, and added him as an author as requested.

Flygon: YouTube video is now accurate.

klmz: Accepted as an improvement to the published movie.
