Introduction

Hello, I'm Kyman. I joined this site in 2008, and I have made many TASes since then. I am currently working on an improvement to the 70 Star TAS.

Bobby's World is a platformer for the SNES inspired by the TV show of the same name.

The author exploits a throwing glitch, and manages to complete the game in just over 10 minutes.

- Heavy glitch abuse
- Genre: Platform
Tiny Toon Adventures (1993), based on a cartoon show of the same name, is a fairly easy game to play. However, it has a nasty bug lurking within it: if you press left and right simultaneously (you can do it if you break your controller's directional pivot), you can get some impressive momentum.

This is an improvement of 17 seconds over the previously published run.

- Major skip glitch
- Heavy glitch abuse
- Genre: Platform
In a normal playthrough, this game is quite long. You must save four family members then progress to the final area to complete the game.

However, the authors use a glitch to skip directly to the final area, skipping 4/5ths of the game; in addition, several new glitches allow more of the final area to be skipped.

This new movie improves upon the previous movie by about 13 seconds.

At first there were 70 stars because Bowser demanded it. Then there were 16 stars because MIPS the rabbit demanded it. Then there was 1 star because Bowser's Sub demanded it. Now there are none because the viewers are impatient and demanded the game be quicker.

As with many other runs on this site, the goal of pure speed has resulted in the complete breaking of the game. Very little of the game's normal play remains. If you'd like to see more of what Super Mario 64 has to offer, see the "70 Stars, no BLJ" run or the "120 Stars" run.

This movie is 47 frames faster than the previous movie due to new strategies and extreme optimization, as explained in the submission text.

Super Mario 64 has a history of publications on this site. If you wish to see how it unfolded since the beginning, see the page SM64TASHistory. Also, if you have a hankering to see MIPS the rabbit, the 16 stars route has been improved.

You can also see this movie played back on a real console.

Or, if you're looking for a TAS on the Nintendo DS remake, you can watch it here.

- Aims for in-game time instead of real-time
- Genre: Puzzle
Mr. Driller 2 is a fast-paced puzzle game where you have to drill to the bottom of the level within a fixed time limit.

In this run, the author drills through the ten time attack courses in slightly under seven and a half minutes. Furthermore, he aims primarily for in-game time, as it adds to the entertainment value and adds also to the strategy, as there are time bonuses in this mode which subtract time.

This is an improvement of 4.76 seconds over the previous publication, with the improvement coming from better routes and better optimization.

Backwards Long Jump (BLJ) is a game breaking glitch not used in this Super Mario 64 run so that the runners can show off a variety of other lesser known glitches. Despite BLJ being banned, Mario shows that he can still collect 70 stars with ninja-like reflexes.

BLJ can be seen in the 0 Stars and 120 Stars runs.

In a shocking twist of events, Bowser kidnaps Peach inside her own castle. Mario shows up and rains on Bowser's parade by collecting all 120 stars and winning in record time.

Numerous bugs are exploited in order to speed up Mario's progress and the physics engine is abused to its fullest.

This is an improvement of 18:08.33 over the previous movie by Rikku.

If you prefer to see the game beaten in the fastest time, then watch the "0 Stars" run.

- Takes damage to save time

An awful lawyer named Tully has kicked The Addams Family out of their house, so it's up to Gomez to throw knives in his face.

Using a glitch that allows the player to warp to the last level, the game is completed in under 2 minutes.

This is an improvement of 6.68 seconds over the previous movie. Much of the improvement comes from Gomez using a new route that involves a detour to collect a potion that increases movement speed.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Fighting
This is a platform beat 'em up based on the anime series Hokuto no Ken. According to the manual, Kenshirou, the main character, has to save the people from the evil Emperor Heaven. The game itself, however, features no story whatsoever, but a lot of platform action instead. You have to run quickly through the levels (there is a time limit), punching and kicking your enemies, causing them to fly away or to explode. Occasionally you will meet a boss, visit secret areas behind doors and collect various power-ups.

This run improves the previous movie by a little over 20 seconds, thanks to greater optimization and a surprising new glitch for beating some bosses very quickly.

There is also a run of the precursor to this game.

Strider is a side-scrolling action adventure game released by Capcom for the Nintendo Entertainment System in North America in 1989.

This game normally takes around half an hour to complete, but the author manages to finish it in less than 4 minutes!

This is an improvement of 1:47.08 over the previous run. You can read the author's comments for more information.

Note: While the movie saves over 1.5 minutes from the previous, it still contains a number of vividly flashing scenes, so don't stare at it too closely.
