Game Information:

Top Gear 3000, later released in Japan as The Planet's Champ: TG3000 (プラネットチャンプ TG3000), is a racing video game developed by Gremlin Interactive and published by Kemco for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. It is the third game in the original Top Gear trilogy, and the last in the series to be developed by Gremlin. 3000 heavily resembles the previous Top Gear 2, but is set in the distant future.


The year is 2962, and not 3000. Five centuries before, World War XVII devastated most of the colonized planets of the Milky Way. The Galactic Conglomerate of Unified Planets, controlling the Bureau of Reasonable Entertainment, has maintained an era of calm and peaceful co-existence through the systematic suppression of any radical thought or action that may "stir up" the teeming masses of citizens populating the twelve star systems under their jurisdiction.

Movie Goals:

  • Emulator Used: Bizhawk 2.3.2
  • Plays on the Hardest Difficulty
  • Uses a Level Password
  • Uses a Suboptimal Character
  • Aims for Entertainment Value
  • Uses the Japanese Version (doesn't consume as much fuel/recharge)
  • Reaches the End Game Credits

Target Categories:

  • Uses a game restart sequence
  • Genre: Racing

Tracks - System: Kraz

  • 1. Sheliak - Pretty easy all around, the cars where somewhat catching up but not fully.
  • 2. Vega - a little more difficult, the cars wanted me not in 1st at all here.
  • 3. Zosma - Talk about aggressive CPU play, every which was a bump from another car.
  • 4. Tirion - The want me to lose at this point.
  • 5. Mechan - They can't stand me anymore, I don't let them win, however.


  • Gearbox: originally upgraded to 6 | now downgraded to: (2) - I need some kind of speed upgrade here otherwise it will be very difficult or almost impossible to catch 1st place.

  • Engine: originally upgraded to 6 | now downgraded to: (3) - this is used in conjunction with the nitro for speed.

  • Tires: Level 6, this is the highest upgrade for tires but it doesn't speed me up or slow me down, it's just for traction purposes, and it keeps me from slipping all over the place trying to stay in 1st while being bumped constantly.

  • Boost: Level 6, this is unchanged, only because I need the extra speed since the cars are going 115 MPH faster than I am.

About the category:

The Alien Car category aims to give the player the ability to play the last 5 tracks of the game with everything upgraded, a lot of money and a wacky colored car. *However this TAS uses a suboptimal character, which makes it more difficult*.

Thanks for looking this over, and I hope you enjoy/enjoyed this TAS

"20th place car get bullied by CPU cars before becoming triumphant circa colorized 2020"
