Award - Exotic platforms TAS of 2020
Genpei Touma Den (1990) is a PC Engine/TurboGrafx-16 port of the arcade game of the same name. Its gameplay is comprised of an unusual combination of top-down, platforming, and beat-em-up action, each with its own camera perspective. The plot follows the samurai Taira no Kagekiyo who has risen from the dead and is fighting his way across Japan to defeat his enemies.

The game was featured in Dream Team Contest 8, and this run is an improvement upon the winning submission. It uses a warp to skip much of the first half of the game, and also employs damage boosts and RNG manipulation to reach the end in record time. The submission notes contain more details.

Bugz is an all-original 2D platformer, written specifically for the Uzebox. It has 21 levels, and the object is to collect all the cookies in each level without dying.

This game was run as part of TASVideos' Dream Team Contest 9, and this TAS was built on a combination of multiple submissions of said contest, which was further improved on.

The authors of this TAS go through the 21 levels in the 1P VS 2P mode (allowing one player to stomp on the other) in record time.

Award - Exotic platforms TAS of 2020
Tetris the Absolute: The Grand Master 2 is the second arcade game in Arika's Tetris: The Grand Master series. The Grand Master 2 introduced the less-intimidating Normal Mode to attract more casual gamers, as well as an all-new grading system in Master Mode, the continuation of TGM's original gameplay.

Tetris the Absolute: The Grand Master 2 Plus is a free upgrade of TGM2, which added TGM+ Mode and the famous T.A. Death Mode that is played in this movie. This mode is notable for starting at maximum gravity (pieces drop from the top to the bottom in 1 frame) and increasing in speed from there; as the level increases, animations play faster and the delay before a piece locks in place becomes shorter.

Masterjun completes the T.A. Death Mode in record time while using wall kicks to speed up horizontal piece movement, collecting all 6 Gold Medals, and also achieving the Secret Grand Master grade. The in-game time is 02:40.40.

This version of Donkey Kong (informally known as Donkey Kong '94, due to its 1994 release date) follows the same premise as the original game from the 1980s, in that Mario is tasked with rescuing Pauline from the eponymous Donkey Kong. Besides adding over 90 additional stages to the original 4 stages, this release also introduces many new game-play mechanics which both help and hinder Mario from reaching his goal. Some of these new elements are patterned off concepts from other Mario games including Donkey Kong Jr., SMB, SMB 2 (USA), and SMB 3.

DrD2k9 throws barrels at DK and rescues Pauline in record time.

Award - GBA TAS of 2020
Ninja Five-O features a ninja cop battling evil ninja masters and terrorists.

Joe Osugi, bizarre 'anti-terrorist ninja', is called in to assist the local police, who seem to be completely useless in rescuing some hostages.

The game is basically a series of rooms connected together. Your job is to rescue the hostages and then escape the stage through the red door. You have in your arsenal a three-level shuriken, a sword, and a grappling hook similar to the one from Bionic Commando. Joe also has two special abilities: to make himself invincible and to attack all enemies on screen.

Memory improves the previous TAS by 28.64 seconds, thanks to better optimisation and new tricks. Please read the author's comments for more details.

On this site, we make perfect movies, and then we surpass them. Of course, if we can surpass them, they were not perfect in the first place, but who would have known?

When "perfection" is defined as "as fast as possible", it requires some sacrifices. Indeed, this movie sacrifices a lot in the playability of the game. Full of tricks to pass through walls, tricks to avoid mandatory battles, tricks to pass through enemies relatively unharmed, tricks to acquire weapon refills in little time — there is very little in this movie left that resembles normal playing. Even death is used as a viable playing strategy that saves time. All of the tricks are still performed by the means of mere controller input, even though significant portions of the input were calculated by a computer program.

This movie improves the previous movie by a tremendous 2 minutes and 37.99 seconds, thanks to a new route and better optimisation. Please read the authors' comments for more details.

Of course, upon watching this movie, one does have to question something... is it Mega Man saving the world? Or Dr. Wily trying to save it from absolute destruction?


The second set of encodes leads to a version where the graphics have been fixed.

Click here to see the movie that obsoleted it.
Pokémon Gold and Silver form the second generation of Pokémon, after Pokémon Red and Blue. The main differences between the generations is that the game is now in full color, and that there are 251 Pokémon instead of 151.

CasualPokePlayer employs a staggering amount of luck manipulation and extremely careful routing (accomplished using the RouteTwo program) in order to improve upon the predecessor Silver run by 1:23.57 minutes. Only a few Pokémon are collected in this run, but all gym badges are acquired before defeating the protagonist of the previous generation of Pokémon games.

The author of this movie has written very extensive details about anything regarding this movie, including even some of the mathematical formulas used by the game. As usual, we recommend reading these comments.

Award - PC TAS of 2020
Braid is a famous indie platform game with some unique puzzlework. It was originally released on Xbox Live Arcade before being ported to other platforms. A major feature of the game is the player's unlimited ability to reverse time and "rewind" actions, even after dying. The game itself was intended to be an artful deconstruction of traditional video game concepts.

keylie improves his previous TAS by 1 minute 11.52 seconds in in-game time, thanks to better optimisation. Please read the author's comments for more details.

This is the 13th published movie of Super Mario World that beats the game by clearing 11 of the 96 exits, the shortest route intended by the game developers. It improves upon the previous run by 2.74 seconds. Mario still dies in the process. Improvements include:
  • Better block duplication in Yoshi's Island 3
  • Better P-switch use in Yoshi's Island 4
  • Lag reduction in many levels

We recommend reading the author's 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.
