The valiant knight Kuros, who has now grown eyeballs on the outside of his helmet, must again fight off the evil wizard Malkil. This task is accomplished mainly by finding an artifact in every level, giving it to a corresponding oversized animal to get into the level boss' lair, and promptly beating him up.

A fast-paced platform game somewhat similar to megaman.

This improves the previous run from Exim by over 2 minutes.

A fast-paced action platformer from Sunsoft with similarities to both Megaman and Blaster Master. What could go wrong with a mix like that!

Shinryuu's movie is almost a minute faster than the previous version, which is a big deal when the game is as short and as straightforward as this one.

Super Mario Bros 2 is one of our most competed games. This is Phil's contribution. It improves the previous record by Sleepz by 36 frames (about 0.5 seconds) with minor improvements here and there.

All of the tricks are however the same ― tricks which were invented by various authors, such as Sleepz and Genisto.

If you are wondering how some of the tricks in this video work, see the Super Mario Bros. 2 tricks page.

The second published warpless Super Mario Bros. 2 movie, now over a minute faster than the previous movie by a different author. Time was gained mostly from some tactical changes as well as being more precise and using Toad more often. A trick involving a glitch with a certain boss also helped reduce the time greatly. Check the author's comments at the submission page for detailed information.

On this site, we are often seeking for the answer to the question: "What is the fastest time game X can be completed in?" And every time the question is asked, the answer changes.

That's what has happened once again. Sleepz has bested Genisto's jawdropper by amazing 20 seconds by not only using the up+down trick in ladders, but some other new techniques too.
What is the next answer?

Once again, Genisto manages to perform a complete jaw-dropper.

Most of us knew that Genisto has been working on an improved SMB2 movie, but I don't think anyone could have expected the improvement to be seventeen seconds!

This is definitely a must-watch.

This is an improvement of 1444 frames (or 24.07 seconds) to Genisto's "princess-only" run of Super Mario Bros. 2 (aka. Super Mario USA).

The concept for this run originated long ago because Princess was the only character not used in the normal run aiming for fastest overall time. Since then, improvements have removed Mario from that run as well.

Surprise Super Mario Bros 3. improvement from nowhere!

Apparently, the team of adelikat, Deign, Cardboard and JXQ had been working some time on this movie, which improves the previous movie by some 5.5 seconds (no small feat at this point), due to a wide variety of different improvements discussed in the submission message.

And of course, a wadload of extra lives are again achieved in the mandatorily slow autoscrolling levels.

For those that still prefer to see 99+ lives, the authors have also put together an alternate run that sacrifices time in order to gain those extra lives.

Ever since Morimoto published his legendary movie in mid-2003, the players at TASVideos have repeatedly made it faster and faster!

This 96 frame improvement over the previous movie features a completely new route through Bowser's Palace, even more off-screen auto-scroller action and other technical improvements detailed in the authors' comments. Finally, Lord Tom and Mitjitsu are proud to announce that the new run once again acquires 99+ lives magnificently.

This movie aims for the fastest possible time to get a score of 999999 in the Nintendo Tetris.

It warps directly to the 19th level and fills half of the field quickly to be able to operate short distances in the top part of the field. From there on, it only gets tetrises (4-line clearings) until the score is maxed out. Putting the long pieces in the middle allows for higher stacking before you clear any blocks, giving this version a 10 second edge over the previous.

The occasional blinks in the movie are caused by rapid pausing to manipulate luck.

An extremely short game based on the Karate Kid movie. The author explains that some movements might not seem optimal, which is because the player has to avoid both entering bonus stages hidden everywhere around the levels and kicking bosses offscreen. If a boss goes offscreen, it regains all of its health, which of course isn't a good thing.

Had the kid been this strong in the movie, it would certainly have been… interesting.

This movie is a about a 3 second improvement over the previous run.
