- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Platform
This is a port to the GBC of much better known PlayStation game of the same name, with surprisingly good graphics for the platform and surprisingly poor imitations of the music from the sequel to the original game.

Rayman, the original flagship character of the now-renowned company UbiSoft, has no arms or legs, but that doesn't stop him from making surprisingly quick progress through this slow-paced game.

- Uses hardest difficulty
- Uses a level password
- Genre: Puzzle
Boulder Dash is a well known action-puzzle game where you must collect a quota of diamonds and reach the exit.

Normally, standing under any falling object or just getting close to an enemy means instant death, but in this movie the player fearlessly dives through heaps of falling objects and walks past enemies without a scratch.

It's quite pleasureable to watch if you have ever sat screaming at this game for getting stuck or killed repeatedly.

This playthrough uses a password to skip to level 19-1, which begins the hardest set of levels.

In this 71-second improvement to the previous movie, CtrlAltDestroy finds even faster solutions to many of the game's puzzles, and destroys the amoebas in record time by abusing their AI.

Dash Galaxy in the Alien Asylum was a game developed by Beam Software and published by Data East in 1990. Your objective is to guide the spaceman Dash Galaxy to the top of the alien rocket he has been imprisoned in, where an escape pod leads to his freedom.

The author, CtrlAltDestroy, skips most of the puzzle rooms and gathers only the required items from the platforming stages in order to complete the game as fast as possible.

- Aims for maximum score
- Uses a game restart sequence
- Heavy luck manipulation
- Single level
- Genre: Puzzle
Tired of being mocked by the viruses, Dr. Mario switched to his "fast-acting" and "extra strength" medication. The viruses never knew what hit them.

This video beats Level 20, Speed Hi of Dr. Mario in record time. Don't blink, or you might miss the twist ending.

Check out this movie being played back on an actual NES.

This game is a platformer about a purple alien shape-shifter named Widget. Along with being able to turn into a few different animals to run faster or get through small passageways, he has the power to zip through walls, shoot at ridiculous rates, and find doors where there were no doors before!

..all the while, keeping that creepy, stupid grin on his face.

This is a 7 second improvement over the author's previous movie by the use of even more glitching.
