Arandomgame TA Ser

Hi there. I'm arandomgameTASer. I make TASes. Usually of completely random games, unless it's Kindom Hearts or Spider-Man. Some revolutionary stuff right there.

Ikachan is a game created by Pixel during the development of Cave Story. You control a squid who needs to help the sea creatures who have been trapped in a cavern.

Fortunately, Ikachan befriends a magical Attack Star that allows him to just simply leave and abandon those losers.

I made this on a whim. It happened to be my first TAS, so I rolled with it. It seems people really liked it, which makes me happy.

Shantae is an obscure Game Boy Color game released over a year after the Game Boy Advance came out. Because of this, it was released in extremely small quantities. It is notable for its impressive animation and scope.

In this run, watch as arandomgameTASer abuses booty dancing and many programming oversights to beat this game in a little over an hour.


You can read the author's commentary in the YouTube stream.

booty shaking delight. This was originally my third movie, but encoding issues pushed it to second. It was extremely annoying to make at times, but worth it.

Kingdom Hearts Re:coded is a remake of the mobile game Kingdom Hearts coded, released in North America in 2011. It is notable for combining many elements from previous handheld games in the Kingdom Hearts series, in particular 358/2 Days and Birth by Sleep.

In this run, watch as arandomgameTASer dodges, lunges, and yells his way through the game's various Disney inspired levels, abusing a surprising number of bugs and tricks along the way. Let's hope Sora finds a good masseuse.


All encodes of this run come with the author's lengthy commentary. The YouTube encode removes the credits and its associated ending theme for copyright reasons.

Second movie I completed, but third published chronologically. This was my most extensive project, and probably the most difficult at this point in time. Still, I'm quite proud of it.

- Aims for in-game time instead of real-time
- One player in a multiplayer game
- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Platform
In a series of vertical shoot 'em ups, Pop'n TwinBee: Rainbow Bell Adventures is a side-scrolling platformer with jetpack mechanics similar to Sparkster. Twinbee, Winbee, and Gwinbee must recover the seven Rainbow Bells and rescue Princess Melora from Dr. Warmon.

Instead, arandomgameTASer decides to play as Winbee alone, who leaves the others in the dust with her faster jet charging.

This movie plays the Japanese release of the game which has alternate level paths, contrary to the strictly linear PAL version.

Incredibly underrated title, very fun to TAS and etc.

Mickey no Tokyo Disneyland Daibouken (ミッキーの東京ディズニーランド大冒険) (or "Mickey's Great Adventure in Tokyo Disneyland") is a Japan-exclusive Mickey game, but with a completely unique graphical and gameplay style compared to other Mickey games on the SNES. This one has balloons, and a propulsion mechanic similar to the likes of Sparkster and Twinbee.

arandomgameTASer improves his old run by 1:02.86, thanks to better optimisation.

Interesting game, very similar to Twinbee really. Got me back into TASing after a bit of a hiatus.

In this run, arandomgameTASer takes full advantage of Spyro's abilities, beating down bosses and finishing the game as quickly as possible.

Spyro!!!! Probably the best one outside the original three games. That's kind of sad actually.

Adventure Time - Hey Ice King! Why'd You Steal Our Garbage?!! is a DS game developed by WayForward, based on the popular show Adventure Time. Its gameplay is heavily inspired by Zelda II.

In this run, arandomgameTASer heavily abuses many glitches in the game, in particular an item jumping glitch, to beat the game in record time. Mathematical!

Another lengthy project. Think I restarted it at least 5 or 6 times before I was finally satisfied. Also, the Duke of Nuts.

Super Star Wars: Return of the Jedi is the third game in the Super Star Wars series, a series notable for its run-and-gun gameplay.

In this run, arandomgameTASer deals with intense lag reduction, along with many glitches and tricks, to finish the game in a fraction of the time it would take normally. Clearly, the Force is with him.

In addition to this run, there are also runs of the first and second games in the series: Super Star Wars and Super Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.


Note: A section of the final level has its audio muted on YouTube to prevent copyright claim and removal of the entire audio track.

The lag is killer, thriller, tonight.

This time around, Spidey decides to delay saving the universe by collecting a bunch of upgrades, much to the anger of Madame Web.

This run completes the game with all items collected, which includes all health and abilities. This is different from 100%, which would require obtaining all achievements.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night for the Sega Saturn is a port of the popular PSX game of the same name. This version features the console-exclusive character Maria, who easily blazes through the castle, proving that she's not just another damsel in distress. arandomgameTASer uses a combination of magic powers, kicks, glitches and luck manipulation to free the world, yet again, from Dracula's minions.

arandomgameTASer improved the previous movie, the Sega Saturn's first published run, by 5.50 seconds with general optimization and new tricks involving axes.

For more glitching and monster killing, we also have Alucard and Richter's movies, both done on the PlayStation version.

Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse (originally known as 悪魔城伝説 or Akumajō Densetsu, meaning "Legend of the Demon Castle") is the story of Trevor Belmont's battle against Dracula from the times before Simon's battle in Castlevania. In this complex and difficult game, there are three playable allies whom Trevor can recruit: Alucard (Dracula's son), Grant DaNasty (a pirate captain), and Sypha Belnades (a mystic warlord).

Unlike the other branches of Castlevania III, this run uses a stairs glitch in Block 4 to climb directly to Dracula and skip most of the game. Only the USA version allows this glitch to work, so it was used instead of the Japanese version, which has superior sound quality.

This is DaNastiest run I've ever done.

Peter Parker is attending a demonstration of the reformed Dr. Otto Octavius's new invention when an imposter Spider-Man steals the device. Spider-Man must work to clear his name and uncover the sinister motives behind the device's theft.

Pac-In-Time is in turn a re-skin of the game Fury of the Furries for DOS and Amiga, which was licensed to Namco and rereleased with Pac-Man instead. This game is a departure from normal Pac-Man gameplay involving mazes and ghosts, and is instead a platformer.

Splatterhouse is the first game in the series, but only the second game to appear on a home console (after Splatterhouse: Wanpaku Graffiti on the Famicom), which was later continued on the Sega Genesis.

Rick and his girlfriend Jennifer enter West Mansion (known as Splatterhouse) to study Dr. West's parapsychology teachings for a school project. After a flash of lightning and a scream, Jennifer is gone, and Rick is left wearing the Terror Mask, which gives the wearer great strength.

Samsara slides for the most part through the demonic enemy forces in 12 minutes and 15.72 seconds.


NOTE: The downloadable encodes feature two video streams. The first (default) stream shows the Japanese version, whereas the second one shows the American version, which had all religious references removed and the colour of the mask changed to red (and its form changed).

Likewise, there are two YouTube streams available: The first stream features the Japanese version, while the second one features the American version.

- Major skip glitch

- Genre: Platform
Trip World (1992) is an aptly named game developed by Sunsoft, a video game company you might know from titles like Gimmick!, Ufouria and Journey to Silius.

It follows a rabbit-like creature called Yacopu on his quest to retrieve the Maita Flower and return peace to the hearts of the people. Along the way he gains abilities like turning into a ball and a big, scary Godzilla-like rabbit.

MUGG's latest improvement is now about 30 seconds faster than the previous version, thanks to new glitches, new routes and better optimization.

EarthBound is a great RPG, designed by Shigesato Itoi in 1994-1995, and is also known by the name Mother 2.

It is best described as "random", in a good way. The game has a great emphasis on a humor, and indeed many things in the game are almost caricatured, from subplots to characters. It also has a versatile soundtrack.

Our description for the previous movie stated, "Although this being a speedrun (tool-assisted at that), most of the plot of the game is intact...". This time around, not so much. Thanks to some collision detection bugs, including one that shows that the Skip Sandwich is a fitting name for the item in ways the developers never intended, the author is able to move around the game's areas freely, completing the bare minimum number of tasks needed to keep the final battle from locking up.

Also unlike the previous movie, this one does use a death as a shortcut. However, the teddy bear survives this time around.

Skip Sandwich indeed.

Award - Sega TAS of 2014
This is a strange platformer where the main character, Michael Jackson, has an obsession with doing weird movements and occasionally dances together with the enemies before beating them to oblivion.

This run by Odongdong obsoletes a nearly 9-year old movie by nearly 4 minutes through new routes, new tricks, and a lot of optimization.

Award - Funny TAS of 2015
Tony Hawk's Underground 2 is the sixth installment in Neversoft's Tony Hawk's series and is the sequel to Underground. The gameplay in Underground 2 is similar to that of previous Tony Hawk games: the player skates around in a 3D environment modeled after various cities and attempts to complete various goals. Most goals involve skating on or over various objects or performing combos. Scores are calculated by adding the sum of the point value of each trick strung together in a combo and then multiplying by the number of tricks in the combo.

In this run, Fog skates, grinds, and flies through the air to complete this game as fast as possible on the easiest difficulty using multiple glitches along the way. For more information on the tricks and glitches used in this run, check out the submission text.

Super Mario Bros 3 is a very famous and popular game for the NES. There are normally two main ways to beat it: the quick way using warp whistles to skip worlds, and the longer way which goes through all the worlds.

Lord Tom goes the same route as the game end glitch run. However, he achieves total control of the game, pushing the run to a whole new level. He gives himself new powers, like the speed booster and the suit-swap, to name a few. Read the author's comments for more details.

This run was shown at Awesome Games Done Quick 2016 during the TAS block:

Everyone who has at least once attempted to gather a soul from each of the 120 different enemies in Aria of Sorrow, especially during a speedrun, knows the frustration it incurs after a hundredth failed attempt to get the required drop. That just makes this all-souls TAS, played on hard mode, even more impressive.

This is an improvement of 1:38.85 over the previous movie, thanks to a more optimised route and newly used items. Please read the authors' comments for more details.

If you would like to see the game beaten even faster, don't miss the any% run by one of the authors, klmz.


Note: Starting from reset was necessary to use hard mode. However, doing so is normally not allowed — refer to the rules to see the reasons.

The second best Castlevania gets the first best TAS.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Action
Resident Evil 4 features a completely new story and an innovative "over-the-shoulder" third person perspective that replaces the fixed camera system of the previous three Resident Evil games.

Special agent Leon Kennedy is on a mission to rescue Ashley Graham, the daughter of the U.S. President, from a sinister cult in a remote rural part of Europe. Leon must fight hordes of violent villagers and mutated monsters on his way to save her.

This run was done on the Japanese version, Biohazard 4, and finishes with an in-game time of 1:35:14.


All encodes include commentary from the author in the form of subtitles.

OBETATHEHLO

I noticed that adelikat had a tab devoted to adding text commentary to his runs, so I thought, hey, why not shamelessly steal/remake/adapt that idea? I'll mostly be talking about personal opinion on these runs, because any technical stuff is covered in either the official commentary or the submission notes.

Ikachan

Oh boy, my first run. A lot went into this one. Initially, I just found the run by lurkchan that was like 14 minutes and tried to copy it. However, I found out via messing around that you could get an Attack Star to follow you if you didn't kill it. So I just started messing with it, and it eventually resulted in clipping into the spaceship room and beating the game. Considering how I barely understood TASing at the time, it's a small miracle I managed to figure that out.

While I'm well aware this was obsoleted by some guy on nicovideo, I'm still proud of this run regardless.

Re:coded

The big one. Next to 358, this was probably the most taxing run I did. I not only had to figure out touch controls, I had to completely route the game from the ground up, due to my suspicion of getting Judgement Triad before Riku, which turned out to be correct. I forget the exact time, but I think it took me roughly 4 months to do this one, which considering my work ethic is quite a long time (seriously usually it takes me like a week). A lot of the tricks in this run that I discovered later trickled down into RTA runs.

Shantae

Shantae is the hell beneath your eyelids.

Super Aladdin

The first run I did of this game I churned out in like a day without much testing. The one I did later utilized a lot of cool tricks, but again I finished it in a day, only much more optimized this time. Fun game, but not really my best TAS.

Pop'N Twinbee: Rainbow Bell Adventure

This game's fun, I guess. Can be improved by delaying goals a few seconds and using a second player.

Mickey no Tokyo Disneyland: Daibouken

The first run I did of this game was trash, my revised run is much better. While from a technical standpoint I'm proud of it, it's not one of my better runs. Sound effects are too annoying, yo. WHATCHAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night

Great game, which I fear wasn't conveyed in the TAS due to all the text skipping and crap. Actually a little disappointed how this one turned out, but oh well.

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days

Ugh, the OTHER big one. This was my first TAS I attempted after I finished Ikachan, but it took almost a year and a half before I was able to knuckle down and do it. Ironically I had a partner when I was doing the first draft, but he totally bailed on me so I had to do it alone. Very taxing. I probably wouldn't do something like this again.

Adventure Time: Hey Ice King! Why'd You Steal Our Garbage?!

Redid this piece of garbage like 5 times over the course of a year to get it optimal.

Shantae "100"%

Did this in 3 days, whatup. Multitude of glitches were recently found that'll shave off like 5 minutes >_>.

Super Star Wars: Return of the Jedi

Long one, worked partially with Tompa but he didn't want credit so eh. Also sparked a forum debate about difficulty choice that was retarded and stuff. First 17 minutes are good, last 6 are kind of boring.

Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions

Fun one, easy to do. Also technically obsolete due to early Electro letting you get Speed Booster early, which could speed up the late game.

Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions "all items"

Kept desyncing on me. The Electro section had to be redone about 5 times >_>. Elsewise, this is by far one of my best TASes in terms of entertainment and quality.

Spider-Man 2000

Cool game with a bad TAS I did. I'll be improving it slowly.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night "Maria Mode"

The original TAS was unoptimal, so I fixed that. Yabause and SaturnHawk are both terrible, but at least Yabause is stable.

Super Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back

Oh hey I finally finished it. Took long enough. Game's just annoying really. It's not as fast as the first and third games, and there's too much filler. Still, the last Darth Vader fight was fun to do.

Spider-Man 3

It was interesting improving someone else's crappy movie. Game's fast, but it's like fast all the time so it gets kind of boring.

Spider-Man 2: Enter Electro

A shitty game that made for an ok TAS. Not my best work, PSXhawk's virtual pad doesn't work on this game.

Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse

Stairway to heaven, baby. Game's not bad. I liked working sort of with Somari.

Hi Everyone!

What did you just say about me? I’ll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I’ve been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I’m the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my words. You think you can get away with saying that to me over the Internet? Think again. As we speak I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic little thing you call your life. You’re dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that’s just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Corps and I will use it to its full extent to wipe you off the face of the continent. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little “clever” comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your tongue. But you couldn’t, you didn’t, and now you’re paying the price, you idiot. I will rain fury all over you and you will drown in it. You’re dead, kiddo.
