X-Men: The Official Game is Activision's tie-in video game to the 2006 film X-Men: The Last Stand. The game lets you control either Wolverine, Colossus, Iceman or Nightcrawler through twenty-five stages of a traditional side-scrolling beat'em up platformer. You move through the levels usually to find the exit. The stages can scroll from left to right, top to bottom or more like a labyrinth.

In this TAS, TehBerral makes extensive use of Nightcrawler's teleport glitch to beat the game in record time.

This improve the previous publication by 50.50 due to better optimizations and strategies.

X-Men: The Official Game is based on the third X-Men film. The game lets you control either Wolverine, Colossus, Iceman or Nightcrawler through twenty-five stages of a traditional side-scrolling beat'em up platformer. You move through the levels usually to find the exit. The stages can scroll from left to right, top to bottom or are designed more like a labyrinth. Enemies are defeated using a variety of punches. The characters differ hereby in range and the damage they deal. Each character also has his own special attack and some character-specific abilities. For example, Colossus can smash certain materials while Wolverine regenerates his health over time.

In this TAS, the author makes extensive use of the teleport glitch in later stages in order to blaze through the game and defeat Master Mold in record time.

X-Men: The Official Game is Activision's tie-in video game to the 2006 film X-Men: The Last Stand. It is mostly a paint-by-numbers X-Men game, which is a good thing.

In this TAS, TehBerral makes extensive use of Nightcrawler's teleport glitch in later stages in order to blaze through the game and defeat Master Mold in record time.

The improvement to the previous run comes from better optimization with said teleport glitch, making the run much more chaotic (and 3 minutes faster).

The new boost energy route is complicated at the moment. If everything goes like I plan then this set up for the energy should work. If not then I'll just have to go back and redistribute the energy in the elevator. The goal is to avoid having to go out of the way to pick up the x4 pellet in one of the later stages. Regardless, at the moment I'm ahead of the publication by 2 frames!

Due to using BizHawk the loading time before the file select ended up costing me 191 frames over the VBA-made publication. Despite this, I was able to save 6 frames off of the first stage by itself.

A must see Sentinel fight. I might rework the Sewer level but I'm happy with this for the moment.
