Award - Computer TAS of 2014Award - First edition TAS of 2014
The good Mecha Santa plans to spread happiness and cheer all over the world. Princess Pitch, previously a sidekick in the game Garden Gnome Carnage, sets out to put an end to those silly plans.

This time around, Princess Pitch decides to take on Mecha Santa and his army of robot elves on a difficulty harder than the hardest (Reallyjoel's Mom), since it's too easy otherwise. Reallyjoel's Mom is a secret joke difficulty meant to be impossible: it multiplies the spawn and attack rate of all enemies several times over and removes all powerups and ammo refills. Consequently, a player without tool assistance will maybe beat one room - if s/he's lucky.

This TAS gets through with liberal use of the piledriver move, as well as precise movement and shooting.

Award - Exotic platforms TAS of 2014
Magician Lord puts you in control of Elta, a wizard who has the task of retrieving eight books of wisdom from the clutches of Az Atorse, the god of destruction. By collecting certain powerups along the way, you can transform into different characters, including Rajin, Samurai, Waterman, Shinobi, Poseidon, and Dragon Warrior. Each transformation makes Elta more powerful and grants him new attacks.

Watch £e Nécroyeur blaze through the game with heavy abuse of a zipping glitch and, well, blazes.

This run improves upon its previous iteration not by time improvement, but by deciding to end the game faster rather than ending input faster; this results in a slightly longer input time, but skips out a big waiting period from the previous run.

Sega's Super Monkey Ball lets you take control of one of four monkeys trapped inside a transparent ball. You must complete each stage by tilting the game level to roll your monkey forward or backward. There are 100 stages ranging in difficulty from easy to near impossible.

In this TAS, the authors skip all the easy levels and warp to the Expert stages, where they proceed to tear through all 50 levels as well as the 10 Master stages, breaking many of the heavily optimized console world record times.

Crazy Taxi is an open world racing video game developed by Hitmaker (Sega AM3) and published by Sega. The main objective of the game is to pick up customers and take them to their chosen destination as quickly as possible.

Pokémon: Red Version is part of the first generation of games within its famous series, known for having a very large number of beneficial glitches. In fact, the game can be completed in less than one minute of in-game time by save data corruption as shown by this run, and it can be completed in under half an hour using a more "conventional" glitch, as shown by this run. These runs break the game, and avoid much of the gameplay intended by the developers.

In contrast, this run by MrWint catches all 151 Pokémon and completes the game, showing off much more of the game than seen in the other runs while still using many glitches to complete this goal much faster than the programmers could have imagined. Thanks to some new glitches, this run is over an hour faster than the previous movie in this category! For more details about the techniques used in this run, please read the author's notes.

Award - NES TAS of 2014
Super Mario Bros 3 is a very famous 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. However, thanks to some esoteric memory corruption involving glitched pipe travel, it's possible to jump right into the princess's room in under three minutes! Bowser is never seen in this run at all.

This run gets to World 7-1 as quickly as possible to perform the glitch, and some unusual moves are done with enemy spawns and positions to get the glitch to work. See the authors' comments for some more details.


There are also author subtitles provided with the emulator movie file and primary encode to explain some of the key differences in this run.

Watch this run on a real NES. And here is how human beings perform the same glitch in real time.

Although the length of this movie is 20:09.98 when timed with our standard method, applying the timing method used by most Zelda speedrunners (until last hit on Ganon) would result in a final time of 16:57.69. It's important to note this so that there's no confusion about which runs are faster than the others.

In this TAS of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, the author aims to beat the game as quickly as possible. He achieves this by exploiting a large sequence break which involves "tricking" the game into warping Link directly from the Deku Tree (the first dungeon) to Ganon's Castle. Child Link then goes on conquering the whole castle without a single thought about becoming an adult beforehand.

Despite how quickly this game can be beaten these days, this run is almost two minutes faster than its predecessor thanks to new tricks at the Deku Tree and tower collapse sequence as well as many small improvements throughout the run.

This TAS was done using the Japanese version of the game. The reason for this is that the text is significantly faster than in the English version, which means that far less time is spent waiting for text boxes and cut scenes to end before getting back to the action.

The author's notes explain in great detail many of the things done in this TAS, which may be confusing to those who aren't familiar with Ocarina of Time speedrunning. Reading them is strongly advised.

Note: There are encodes of higher resolutions in the discussion thread.

Award - PSX TAS of 2014
Year of the Dragon is the third installment in the Spyro series and the last Spyro game to be released for the PlayStation, in addition to being the last one created by its original creators.

After many technical issues, this first ever completed TAS of Spyro: Year of the Dragon finishes the game with 100% (in-game 117%) game completion, over an hour faster than any normal speedrun. This is done through carefully planned routes, precisely executed glitches and highly optimized movement.

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.

Ludicrous-speed bouncing around. Completed without collecting any emeralds, with both Sonic and Tails controlled by the player.

This run takes everything you know about Sonic 3 & Knuckles and turns it upside-down. It extensively uses the "scroll objects offscreen to pass through them" trick to zip and warp to places that shouldn't be reached, break bosses, and effectively skip entire stages.

This latest effort by Aglar and marzojr represents the first published improvement of this run in over four years, and the first time since this run, over seven years ago, that the authors replayed the entire game instead of replaying only select levels and then splicing input from the previous movie. Every single level is faster, and there are some surprising new glitches in several stages. For more details, see the run's comments.


The downloadable encodes in the second set use a camhack, which attempts to always keep Sonic onscreen and puts HD sprites on top of the background to make the TAS look even better.

Based loosely on the plot of the movie of the same name, this game is about a man named Stanley Ipkiss, who finds a powerful mask known as The Mask. However, the evil Dorian Tyrell has also become aware of this and kidnaps his girlfriend in order to obtain it.

One of the traits The Mask seems to give Stanley is extreme speed, so naturally, aside from a couple of boss fights, the gameplay is extremely fast throughout the movie. The Mask also has a variety of special powers, most of which are seen in this run. These powers cost M points to use, which have to be managed carefully over the stage.

This run is an improvement over the previous one due to general optimizations and better use of glitches. Those who watched the previous run should especially see the massive improvement to the sewer stage.
