Award - Computer TAS of 2015
Metal Gear!? It can't be!

This is the original MSX version of the first entry of the ever-popular Metal Gear series of stealth video games created by Hideo Kojima and developed and published by Konami. In this game, Snake infiltrates Outer Heaven, a fortified state founded by a "legendary mercenary" 200 km north of Galzburg, South Africa, in an operation codenamed Intrude N313. He must find out what happened to Gray Fox, after losing contact with FOXHOUND.

In this movie, however, dunnius isn't very stealthy at all; he goes through numerous alerts in order to reach a time of 26 minutes and 28.05 seconds.

Award - DS TAS of 2015
Pokémon: Pearl Version is part of the 4th generation of Pokémon games, after Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald. For the first time in the main series, it features 3D graphics and online play over the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. In addition, there are 107 new Pokémon to catch.

In this run, MKDasher beats the game fast using luck manipulation and a major glitch that loads the overworld map incorrectly, allowing him to venture outside the level boundaries. For more information, see the author's comments.


There is also an alternate YouTube stream featuring commentary by the author.

- Genre: Shooter
Award - First edition TAS of 2015
Ikaruga (2001) is a vertical shoot 'em up published and developed by Treasure as a spiritual successor to its earlier title, Radiant Silvergun (1998). It was first released on arcade machines, then eventually ported to Dreamcast, GameCube, XBLA, Android, and even Steam, thanks to the loyal following among the Western shoot 'em up fans. GameCube version was chosen for creation of this TAS as it provided both the most arcade-accurate port, and the most accurately emulated platform of those available at the time.

Ikaruga features a polarity mechanic wherein enemies can be black or white, shooting black or white bullets, respectively. Additionally, player ships themselves can switch between black and white: when white, ship absorbs white bullets and deals extra damage to black enemies, and vice versa. When enough bullets are absorbed, a powerful enemy-seeking attack can be unleashed. As such, typical gameplay consists of frequent polarity switching, chain-killing enemies, and absorbing bullets instead of dodging them; to capitalize on this, the author chooses to control both player ships in order to absorb as many bullets as possible, do more damage, and pick off escaping enemies without breaking a kill chain.

The goal of this TAS is to maximize the score. Ikaruga's scoring system mainly consists of color-based enemy chaining: killing three enemies of the same color in a row increases chain value, messing up the color sequence resets it. Absorbing bullets and lasers, speedkilling bosses, and having spare lives at the end are also significant score boosts—all of these are used in the TAS to the fullest extent. The final score is a massive 50,230,200, only attainable with two players.


Ikaruga has been extensively competed in both Western and Asian gaming communities, leading to publication of an official superplay DVD, as well as blessing us with many amazing feats of unassisted gameplay. If you've enjoyed this TAS and would like to see what some of the best human players have to offer, make sure to watch VTF-INO's unassisted doubleplay, in which the player attempts to achieve maximum score by controlling both ships in realtime; also check out RNA's flawless stage 5 boss fight done solo, and Sa Suisai's full-game unassisted playthrough on Normal difficulty, executing some inhumanly precise chains on the XBLA version of the game.

Award - First edition TAS of 2015
Mega Man 9, known in Japan as Rockman 9: Yabō no Fukkatsu!! (ロックマン9 野望の復活!!) is a video game made by Capcom and Inti Creates for the WiiWare download service, among others, in 2008. This game is notable in that despite being developed for modern consoles, it features 8-bit visuals and audio as a retro throwback to the NES entries of the series. It also features a plot twist early on in that Dr. Light's robots go on a rampage, with Dr. Wily not having any connection to the incident (or so he claims).

AngerFist and diggidoyo blaze through the game and defeat Dr. Wily once again in 30 minutes and 20.98 seconds (19:11 in-game time).

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.

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.

Contrary to the previous publication, which used no glitch warps (either by death or by getting out-of-bounds using transform souls), this run makes extensive use of them, knocking off 6 minutes and 10.84 seconds of it. However, the previous publication is still worth a watch, as it demonstrates how such a run would look like if no glitch warps were used.

If you would like to see the game beaten even faster, don't miss the any% run by 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 quest of The Legend of Zelda is what you get by having completed the game once. It is more difficult than the first quest. In this movie, the authors enter ZELDA as the player's name to start the 2nd quest without having to complete the game first.

The authors in this run also enter some of their own code, and don't really complete the game a second time either – yet somehow do. See the authors' notes for more details.

We also have a non-glitched run of this 2nd quest.

Award - PSX TAS of 2015
Electronic Arts brings Blizzard's best-selling strategy game to the PlayStation and Saturn in this release. They've combined all the missions from Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness and its expansion pack, Beyond the Dark Portal, into one package.

You take charge of either the humans and elves or the orcish hordes for control of the lands of Azeroth. Eventually you work through the dark portal and into the orcs' homeland. You take charge of either side as you work through more than 20 missions per side in the fight for survival.

New features for the console release include an auto-build option, where you can set a queue of units to be produced and the ability to select sixteen units at a time instead of the PC's nine.

This run by Flip plays through the Orcish Horde's Beyond the Dark Portal campaign.

For a run of the Human Expansion by the same author, see this run.

A few new tricks were found:

  • Stunning a fish;
  • Lateral corner clip;
  • Downward corner boost.

We recommend reading the authors' comments for more details.

There are also movies of this game that trigger the credits early, clear all 96 exits, clear as many exits as possible as small Mario and write a program using the game's code.

Award - Speedy TAS of 2015
CD-Man is a Pac-Man clone first released in 1989, then updated to Version 2.0 in 1992. The game speed options range from the really slow "Zzzzz..." to the mind-numbingly fast "Warp". Five levels are present in Version 2.0 of the game, unlike the original version, which ended at level 3.

Author c-square controls two characters simultaneously at the highest speed setting and clears the 5 levels twice in 3.71 seconds, making it one of the fastest published TASes on this site.

Due to the sheer speed of the game, slowed down encodes are available. One is at 16.7% of the regular speed, while another is at 10% of the regular speed.
