Author's comments and explanations:
I think this TAS is enough short to do not be boring and rejected. I made this TAS few months ago and it beats the World Record by 5 seconds : https://www.twingalaxies.com/game/boxing/atari-2600-vcs

Game presentation

You are a boxer and your goal is to win the round against an opponent. To punch the opponent, one of your boxing gloves has to be in the front of the face of your opponent (the game take the better one by itself). The game finish when one boxer has a 100 score or when the time is finished.


  • BizHawk 2.2.2
  • fastest In-game time and TAS time (same result)
  • Genre: Sport

Temp Encode


When you hit a long punch, your score is incremented by 1. When you are closer, your score is incremented by 2. The boxer hitten will move a little bit in the opposite direction of your punch so the best strat is to punch with the other hand and if necessary, move a little bit in the opposite direction of the opponent


  • 20 : X position
  • 22 : Y position
  • 12 : your score


Thanks to Greg Degeneffe because he made me do research about Activision's Atari 2600's games.

feos: The game is far from trivial, the run is faster than human records, the difficulty settings are correct, the ending (KO) is reached, everything in this run is legit. Game-play is as simplistic as most A2600 games, so even when feedback is somewhat above average, the rating will still be low. Accepting to Vault.
