Enix decided to hop on the monster collection/battling bandwagon with Dragon Warrior Monsters, in which the main character, Terry, makes friends with various monsters from previous DW games so he can win the Starry Night Tournament and rescue his sister.

Here, DonamerDragon obliterates what is normally a many hours-long game through heavy luck manipulation.

Bisqwit: I have no idea what's happening in this movie. I only know it completes the game quickly. :)

The Legend of Zelda - Links Awakening is a classic Game Boy Zelda adventure. Link must travel across the dream world of Koholint Island, collecting the 8 Instruments to wake the Wind Fish and go home after a terrible shipwreck.

This movie here completes the game in a time quite a bit shorter than what the creators probably originally intended. A warping glitch is used to skip almost everything in the game.

This movie is about 5.5 seconds faster than the previous version.

If you liked this, be sure to also check out the Game Boy Color version (DX), which completes all the dungeons.

Super Mario Bros 2 is one of our most competed games. This movie is DonamerDragon's contribution of 19 frames (approximately 0.32 seconds) over Phil's attempt to perfect this route.

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

Final Fantasy Mystic Quest is a short RPG game that is quite much different than the Final Fantasy games that came before or after it.

This is the second TAS movie of FFMQ, now 12 minutes faster than the previous version by Ryan Foley aka. Hero of the day.

We recommend reading the author's comments for information about this run.

Kirby's Avalanche is a tetris based game where you go through Dreamland, fighting various opponents from the Kirby games. Your goal is to become the Avalanche champion.

The author's aims for this game were:

  • Complete the game as fast as possible on its highest difficulty.
  • To entertain the viewer with the combos, instead of just making them.
  • To attain the highest score possible without losing time.

This is actually the third submission for this game that we have received.

- Aims for in-game time instead of real-time
- Heavy luck manipulation
- Genre: Puzzle
Wario has taken over the forest and it is up to Toad to defeat all of his monsters in huge tree trunks, caves and castles to save the day!

This is like Yoshi's Cookie and Tetris Attack all in one game. Your goal is to match lines of two or more monsters with bombs of corresponding color until you have cleared the screen.

Watch as DonamerDragon uses planning and luck manipulation to destroy the game's time competition levels!

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.
