- Takes damage to save time
- Heavy luck manipulation
- Genre: Platform
Darkwing Duck (1992) is a platformer somewhat similar to Mega Man in gameplay and difficulty. The arrow gun allows the player to climb up walls and use creative shortcuts so that the absolute shortest route can be taken. In case you are wondering why the character keeps on jumping so much, it is because he has to wait a short amount of time before being able to walk. With constant jumping these stops can be avoided.

This movie is a joint venture between AnS and Randil to improve the previous run by Walker Boh, resulting in 35.7 seconds saved through means of extensive optimization, luck manipulation and lag removal. We recommend reading the authors' comments for more details.

See this run replayed on an actual Famicom console.

- Heavy luck manipulation
- Genre: Adventure
- Genre: Puzzle
Goof Troop (1993) is a cheerful puzzle game based on Disney show of the same name. The gameplay is somewhat similar to NES Legend of Zelda with its maze-like map filled with one-screen rooms, except this time the emphasis on puzzles is stronger, and you can play in co-op.

In this movie the authors control two characters (Goofy and Max) simultaneously. This allows for a good deal of team work as one character can go get an item while the other heads for the exit. When there is no multi-tasking to do, the authors do a good job performing antics with one or both of the characters.

This is a nearly 4 minute improvement over Frenom's previous movie. Improvements come from new tricks, better teamwork, luck manipulation and optimized movements.

In this game, two jovial brightly-colored soldiers infiltrate enemy forces. Everyone here runs around menacingly, and bullets are a bit slower than a housecat.

This run saves 20 frames over the previous one by stepping on a mine with the second player in the final stage.

Note: The name of this game is Rush’n Attack. The 'n does not stand alone as a contraction of and, unlike Ghosts ’n Goblins. Given the theme of the game, the pun on “Russian Attack” is quite obvious.

- Genre: Action
- Genre: Platform
Jackie Chan and his twin sister Josephine were great kung fu fighters in China and trained under a great master. One day when Jackie and Josephine were out walking, the Master's great enemy, The Sorcerer, appeared. The Sorcerer had come to rule over China and knew the twins would stand in his way, so he cast a spell to make Josephine disappear. Now it's up to Jackie Chan to follow after the Sorcerer and battle his minions in order to rescue his sister and save China.

Jackie Chan's Action Kung Fu is a side-scrolling fighting game. Jackie's controls are one button to jump and another one to attack or be used in combination with a direction for a special attack. On his quest, Jackie must punch and kick his way past frogs, ninjas, birds and other enemies. Jackie can acquire special-moves such as the Tornado attack, the 180 degree spin kick, the 360 degree spin kick and the Sky Attack. Other power-ups include energy refills and bonus points.

Clash at Demonhead is a complex game to say the least. There are over 40 levels in the game, and they are all connected to each other. In the network of levels, the player must control Billy "Big Bang" Blitz to find 6 medallions and then rescue the kidnapped professor. This is no simple task. To make things even harder for a (tool-assisted) speedrunner, there are items available that greatly increase the player's speed, but in return cost money. This means that the route and strategy must be carefully planned.

This movie certainly does not lack speed or complexity, and is especially entertaining if you have played the game and know how hard it is. In this run, Randil improves the previous movie by over 4 minutes primarily thanks to a new trick that allows you to use the Power Boots for twice as long. As a result, he doesn't need to shop as much, allowing him to forgo the detour to Route 22 in order to exchange his gold for money.

The story is about a mysterious robotic force which attacked the world and drove the ninjas out of Japan. Two of the ninjas set out to reclaim the land, but not only did they abuse the powers given by the ninja-obsessed video game industry, they did it in style.

The teamwork of the two ninjas is remarkable. One of the ninjas often transforms into a tiger on which the other ninja can ride.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Action

The valiant knight Kuros, who has now grown eyeballs on the outside of his helmet, must again fight off the evil wizard Malkil. This task is accomplished mainly by finding an artifact in every level, giving it to a corresponding oversized animal to get into the level boss' lair, and promptly beating him up with a level-specific attack spell. However, this run manages to use a glitch to keep the attack spell for several levels instead of losing it at the level's end.

This is an improvement of 1 minute and 14.41 seconds over the previous TAS, thanks to much better optimization. The final boss fight was especially improved thanks to a frame war between several of the authors.

A storybook game like Shadowgate and Uninvited.

In this one you star as Ace Harding, a detective who wakes up having no idea who or where he is. As the game progresses you discover that you have been framed for a crime you didn't commit, and must find a way to clear your name.

This, the fifth submission of this game by the same author, is a 35.45 second improvement over the author's previous attempt. Most of the improvement comes from using a "leave bullet" bug, as detailed in the submission text.

See the Déjà Vu GameFAQs page for more information about this game (we recommend Mr. Kelly R. Flewin's Déjà Vu Speed Guide).

Solstice: The Quest for the Staff of Demnos (1990) follows a wizard called Shadax on his quest to retrieve the eponymous staff in order to save a princess from being unjustly incarcerated. The game is essentially a huge isometric labyrinth filled with devious traps and oddball creatures to ensure especially frustrating peril in the absence of any kind of map to help the player. (Well, at least it was like that before the Internet era, but make no mistake: the game isn't by any means easy nowadays, either.) One of the most memorable aspects of the game is its jazzy musical theme filled with deep bass notes uncommon for the NES.

This movie is 1.18 seconds faster than its predecessor, thanks to better optimization and some new strategies.

We also have a 100% Solstice run.

This run of Paperboy performs a perfect delivery every day. The author crashes his bike Monday - Saturday to avoid the obstacle course but then plays and finishes it flawlessly on Sunday. It does this as fast as possible, but does not go for score. Instead, it has different subgoals set up every day:

  • Friday: Moving objects crashing day
  • Saturday: Daredevil day

Kid Kool, a game created by Vic Tokai, stars "Kool" as he gains 7 magical herbs to cure the king of a dreaded illness. He does this along with his helpful red partner "Wicky" who can kill enemies and help defeat bosses. If the player fails to complete the game in under three hours (in-game), then the king dies. So this is a frantic game where speed is key.

In this run, Randil uses zipping glitches (aided by MATLAB) and expert playing to finish with an in-game time of under ten minutes, leaving the enemies in the dust and saving the king with much time to spare.

Delivering pizza is not normally a job one would consider dangerous.

If you were hoping for free pizza from slow delivery, look somewhere else; the author succeeds in deliveries so quickly you'll think the guy was there before people even placed their order.

It tells a story about a boy, Tarosuke, who seeks to meet Buddha, who will decide about Tarosuke's next life.
In order to meet Buddha, Tarosuke has to do lots of good deeds which earn him "piousness".

This movie is ~80 seconds faster than the previous movie by Morimoto, which was the oldest non-obsoleted movie on this site at the time, being almost 4 years old.


Because there is a lot of interesting dialog in this movie, but all in Japanese, the provided AVI is made to contain English subtitles for all in-game dialog text, as well as some explanations. It should help understanding the game events as well as enjoying its weird sense of fun.

- Uses easiest difficulty
- Genre: Platform
Circus Charlie is a simple game that most people probably know from pirate multigame carts. The first stages are easy for anyone even on real NES, but stage 3 is already quite challenging.

This movie plays "1 player game A" (easy). Ironically, this is MORE challenging for tool-assisted gameplay.

Stage times: 3440, 3560, 3750, 3880, 4280.

Yet another "perfect" movie beaten. This time by 12 frames.

The currently fastest "game B" (hard) TAS can be found here.

This is a game similar to Shadowgate and Deja Vu. In it, you wake up in a crashed car just outside a strange mansion, desperate to explore the ghost-ridden building to find and rescue your missing sister.

The speed at which the author manipulates the menus is impressive. This is an 4.12 second improvement over the author's previous movie.

- Genre: Storybook
This is a TAS of the game Deja Vu 2, the sequel to the popular Deja Vu for NES. This time, however, you do remember who you are, and you also remember that you owe some mobster a lot of money.

The goal in the game, however, is not to get the money - instead you're supposed to frame the mobsters. You do this by planting certain items in desks and stuff like that.

Overall, this movie is a lot like the other storybook TAS: super-fast menu navigation, a lot of route planning, and the general feeling of "What in the world is going on in this movie?"

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Action
This GBC game is based off the popular television series Mission: Impossible.

Following the spirit of that series, this is a stealth-based game. Supposedly tricky tasks are to be performed covertly. But in this movie, stealth is clearly not one of the author's highest priorities. It's all running through guards, as if they weren't there. Yet the player does not die.

This movie is 16.43 seconds faster than the predecessor movie.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Shooter
Super Spy Hunter (1992) was originally released in Japan under the name Battle Formula (バトルフォーミュラ). The game has "become" a sequel to Spy Hunter, the arcade classic from 1983, already after its initial release — when the developer purchased the license from Midway.

Since the main character drives a wheeled vehicle, this game shows to be the rare kind of a variable scrolling speed shooter, where you can slow the car down if you can't keep up with the action (which obviously never happens in a TAS). The core gameplay holds true to its spiritual predecessor, but this time it's spiced up with stage bosses and various sorts of powerups.

This movie is a 1 minute 14 second improvement over the previous one thanks to increased precision, lag reduction, and better boss fighting.

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.
