Catrap is a platform/puzzle game where a boy and girl work through a series of 100 puzzles. This breaks a curse and returns them to human form. Completing each level involves climbing ladders and moving blocks so that each enemy can be defeated. A rewind function is present for trail+error attempts to get to the solutions. But that feature isn't needed here.

This run makes clever use of the switch mechanics. Switch can't be used immediately after defeating an enemy, so other actions are performed while the enemy falls off the screen. Attacking from the ladder is slightly faster, the author uses this and other similar tricks to help save time.

Final Fantasy Adventure is the first game of the Seiken Densetsu (聖剣伝説) series but it does contains some classic Final Fantasy elements. The series is probably best known for the SNES game Secret of Mana. This game was later remade on the Gameboy Advance as Sword of Mana. Gameplay is quite similar to a Zelda game, however there is level building.

In this run, MattyXB demonstrates how to flawlessly beat the game. What's unusual is that he also uses some glitches to completely skip parts in the game saving over 20 minutes. The "Power" option is selected on every level-up.

Those trying to follow the story in this movie will have a hard time, since the main characters were both named "A" and integral points in the story were skipped.

Another run of Final Fantasy Adventure, but this time it's the whole game without any warps.

Watch MattyXB defeat the evil Dark Lord and others using the "Power" option for every level-up, and glitching out the game where possible.

It's easier to follow the story in this run, but still tricky at times because both main characters were named "A".

This game is part of the Ghost n' Goblins series. In this installment you play as Firebrand, a hero for the bad guys.

Although the game looks straightforward, it requires a lot of precision and a bit of luck manipulation to play it this well.

This game is one of the first to have an overhead map and combine RPG-like elements with platform levels.
