Based on the 1988 Michael Keaton movie, Beetlejuice follows the rough storyline of the movie. A ghoul named Beetlejuice is hired by a recently deceased couple to scare away the new occupants of their old home. The game is a side scrolling action game where the lead character can run, jump, and stomp his way through the house while collecting "scare points" to help in his ultimate goal. The house is equipped with all manner of traps including incinerating lasers, and even the torches hurt.

ktwo improves the previous TAS by 1 minute and 17.79 seconds, thanks to better optimisation as well as exploiting certain quirks in the game, like the special ability to jump higher with the birdman scare. Please read the author's comments for more details.

- Genre: Platform
In the South Pacific, Master Higgins lives peacefully wearing only a grass skirt and a cap. That is, until the Evil Witch Doctor decides to capture Princess Leilani and hold her as his own. Now Higgins must rise to the task of saving her!

The most obvious way to save time in this game is to pick up as little fruit as possible and be close to dying from starvation when the level ends so the score-countdown will take less time.

This movie beats the previous record by 1:12.16 minutes thanks to a bunch of new time saving techniques found in this game since 2006.
