Movie Goals

  • Beating the Galaga minigame in the initial loading screen as fast as possible
  • Emulator used: BizHawk 2.4

About the movie

Well, it turned out this minigame seems to be TASable, to I TASed it.


  • Destroying the last two enemy of a wave in reversed order: this saves some time because it makes the last enemy of the wave disappear early, at the cost of delaying the other one.
  • Destroying two enemies at the same time: your ship fires two bullets at time, and when one disappears, the other one does as well. However, if both bullets hit two enemies at the same time, both enemies will be hit. I have managed to hit one enemy twice with both bullets, which allowed to destroy instantly despite the fact that had 2 HP.

Mothrayas: Claiming for judgment.

Mothrayas: As Galaga has standalone releases, playing it as part of a multi-game release is not an acceptable goal. As such, rejecting.

Spikestuff: If anyone wants to dump this in the future use 2.2.2 as 2.3 to 2.4 can crash when dumping.
