Evel Knievel is a game by the creators of the famous Grand Theft Auto, and is a motocross game that looks a lot like Elasto Mania and Trials.

Aqfaq defies the law of physics by doing tricks that are impossible to perform in real life. If you are looking for crazy motocross action, then look no further — you have it right here!

Hugo 2 1/2 is a game based on a call-in TV series for kids. It includes six levels (one of them is exclusive of this version) which are directly based on mini games from the TV show. The goal is always to both survive and collect as many money bags as possible. The amount of required bags to beat a level depends on the chosen difficulty level.

A Boy and His Blob: The Rescue of Princess Blobette is a sequel to the NES game with equally silly title. This time, the boy and his obedient friend save a princess, who is caged in a castle tower. The rescue operation is supposedly executed as efficiently as possible, even though it means that the boy needs to sacrifice one of his lives just to save some time.

Rolan's Curse is like a simplified version of the NES Legend of Zelda with slower gameplay and more restricted game world, resulting in a primitive hack-and-slash experience. Nevertheless, there exists an interesting storyline: The kingdom of Rolan has been invaded by the forces of some evil being called Barius. However, in this movie, the final boss is never actually seen. Instead of meeting Barius face to face, the hero (who seems to have a face on the back of his head) defeats him by abusing a strange programming error.

Gods is a game about someone who wants to become a god and gain immortality. This is a delicate and paradoxical issue, since on one hand temporal immortality can be bought at just about every shop, and on the other hand the hero dies 11 (eleven) times, which has to be some kind of Nesvideos record.

Another fun aspect is bomb-jumping, which allows both higher jumps and traveling vertically through walls. Almost the whole final level is skipped with this trick.

"Hey, let's fight!"

Ka-Ge-Ki is a game, where you play a fighter out to get revenge on the Kageki gang for murdering his brother.

"Is that all?"

Well, you have the ability to throw two different types of punch and to jump. Only the big punch is used. The gang is very polite and allows you to beat them up one at a time.

"Oooh, he not bad."

What's a referee doing in a gang anyway?

King's Bounty is a turn-based strategy game. The objective is to recover the Sceptre of Order. Map pieces that reveal the location of the sceptre are gained by defeating villains and finding special artifacts.

A normal play session would involve exploring four large continents and battling hundreds of creatures, but in this movie nobody gets killed and everyone is happy.

The input length is 10 seconds long, only 25 frames of which is actual gameplay!

Madou Monogatari (魔導物語) is an RPG best described as 'strange'. The game has overly cute design and the battles are probably a little different than you would expect. The story revolves around a girl who is on a quest to pass her final exam in a magic school.

A defining moment is one of the cutscenes, where a slime is encountered and suddenly defeated by a strange girl bursting through a brick wall. Then, an equally strange armored knight drops in from the ceiling and the two of them proceed to ignore you and chase each other away.

The fast completion time is achieved mostly by using a random-effect spell, which has a small chance of producing a devastating elephant stomp (yeah, really). Naturally, in a TAS, the "small chance" gets a new meaning.

You can see this movie played back on an actual Genesis here!

- Takes damage to save time

This colorful game is based on the manga of the same name and features what appears to be a magical baby navigating through some unusual and fairly friendly looking enemies. Everything, particularly inanimate objects, has a face. The levels vary from suburbia to castles to clouds, and end with particularly unique bosses.

The main character's ability to glide sets this apart from many other platformers. The author uses this power frequently to both gain speed and to simply hover above helpless enemies.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Platform
Mystic Defender is the USA version of the Japanese game "孔雀王2" (Kujaku-Oh Ni, which means "The Peacock King 2"). Except for changing the clothing of the hero and deleting the intro and the names of the stages, everything seems to be the same.

Because Peacock the hero is not a very smart hero, he cannot walk and use his arms at the same time (a common video game character disability). Thus he must jump to be able to use his arms. If he is charging a bigger shot when he lands, he forgets to walk for a few frames, so you cannot charge up a shot too early. It's all very delicate.

This is a 35 second improvement over the previous movie by highness. Much of the improvement comes from an interesting glitch in the last level.

Warning: This movie has been rated PG-13 by the TVRA for Tool-Assisted Violence, Brief Nudity, and Inappropriate Glitch Abuse. Viewer discretion advised.

Tool-assisted runs are more than just running to the end of a game as quickly as possible; precision also plays a huge factor. As proof, look no further than... mini-golf?

While the segments of input are very short, a great deal of work is needed to figure out exactly what the best shots are in order to complete the holes in the fastest possible time.

If you enjoyed watching this, also check out another mini-golf run with even zanier courses.

Rolo to the Rescue is a platformer for the Genesis, starring an agile elephant, Rolo. Gameplay involves freeing animals from cages. Switching to the saved animals allows for different movement modes, which adds some puzzle elements. The overworld is assembled by getting pieces from clearing stages.

By herself, Rolo can only take one hit, but the animals she frees will take a hit then leave the group. Rolo is a perfectionist, anything less than 100% gets the bad ending, which is quite dark for a game that seems aimed at kids.

Splatterhouse 2 is a splatter-themed beat 'em up/action game featuring a skull-masked guy fighting against undead creatures to save a girl. It is also the sequel to this game.

Watch as Aqfaq takes a leisurely walk by hordes of zombies and other monsters, abusing some sliding tricks to maintain fast speed and defeat bosses quickly. In waiting periods, Aqfaq also shows some stunts, such as having monsters fall on his foot, delivering some wicked suckerpunches, or toying with the damsel in distress.

Starflight puts the player into the captains seat and sets them free on a galaxy of 270 stars and 800 planets. This is an early example of a sand box game which leaves the player free to explore for minerals, locate habitable planets, upgrade the ship and crew, and interact with aliens. The eventual goal becomes stopping unusual solar flares in the region.

In this run the clairvoyant space pilot already knows the cause of the flares and gets straight to business. He buys a better engine and pumps a ton of fuel into his ship called "A". The initial resources are barely enough to reach the key destinations. The pilot hero and his multi-talented single crew member sidekick also called "A" work together to obtain the Black Egg and the Crystal Orb as quickly as possible. All is done with a minimalistic route. All pieces seem to fit together seamlessly. The ship called "A" reaches the Crystal Planet with only a drop of fuel left, so it is a bit strange that the heroes manage to escape the effects of the Star Wars-esque planet-scale explosion. Most of all, this is a lesson in ecological driving as the fuel would have ran out, if the final destination had been even a few pixels further.

The Faery Tale Adventure is an action RPG released for Amiga in 1986 and ported to the Genesis in 1991. The plot revolves around three brothers who go on a quest to defeat an evil Necromancer and retrieve a Talisman from him.

The game world is gigantic and normally requires hours of adventuring around to collect five Golden Statues to access a hidden city to find a magical flower, which allows the brothers to walk across the lava protecting the Necromancer and defeat him.

However, Aqfaq just skips all of this, using health potions and incredibly precise luck manipulation to walk straight across the lava and recover the Talisman in a little over 20 minutes.

The Immortal is a dungeon game with spells, goblins, and of course, countless traps of instant death. The story is quite humorous at times.

This movie is about Wonder Boy fighting against (or running past) a horde of cute monsters.

The Oasis Boots that are normally required to cross the desert were not used in this movie, because it was slightly faster to go without them.

In Japan, the game is known as Wonder Boy V: Monster World III.

Krazy Ace Miniature Golf is a (spoiler!) miniature golf game for one to four players. The goal is to hit the golf ball into the hole in as few shots as you can while avoiding obstacles and traps.

In this movie, Aqfaq optimizes the angle and power of his shots to beat each of the game's nine holes as fast as possible. You might also enjoy reading his humorous submission text.

A Boy and His Blob: Trouble on Blobolonia (1989) is a popular, whimsical game in which a shapeshifting blob (named Blobert) from the planet Blobolonia teams up with an Earth boy to overcome obstacles on both planets and to defeat Blobolonia's evil emperor.

This movie is ~11 seconds faster than the previous version by the same author, due to better control of the boy's acceleration.

This game features a classic save-the-princess plot... in the form of a pinball game.

This run saves 29.36 seconds over its predecessor (accounting for a frame rate difference) due to improved strategies and increased precision.

If you like pinball games featuring characters as the ball, also check out Sonic Spinball or Mario Pinball Land.

Monster Pro Wrestling is a Japanese game in which you choose a monster and battle other monsters in turn-based battles. It is notable for its humorously nonsensical battle animations, such as the appearance of a dozen heads on screen and death blows literally tearing monsters apart.

In this movie, Aqfaq uses well-planned strategy and a fair amount of luck manipulation to defeat each monster in the fewest rounds possible. For more information, check out his detailed submission text.

Heart of the Alien is a direct sequel to the SNES game Out of This World starring Buddy, the alien ally of the main character in the previous game. After flying the pterodactyl to the ruins of his village and leaving his friend in a bed to rest, Buddy begins a search for the red-eyed alien responsible for the destruction of his village and the imprisonment of his people.

In this run, Aqfaq uses tool-assisted precision and glitches to finish this game in a little more than 5 minutes.

Note: Some scenes have graphic violence. Viewer discretion is advised.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Platform
Long ago, in the distant land of Moralos, in a time when vast jungles still covered the Earth, an evil presence emerged from his tomb beneath the ground. His name was Gilbas, and he was about to destroy the inhabitants of the land. Aganan, a great warrior, was summoned to save the troubled land and put an end to Gilbas by sealing him in the tome from where he came.

Unfortunately, Gilbas was successfully resurrected and another warrior, Danan, was called. His quest is to locate the three sacred objects that Aganan used to defeat Gilbas: "The Orb of Light", "The Amulet of Light", and "The Knife of Light".

This run by Aqfaq uses careful experience point management and precise boss fights to save time and beat the game in under seven and a half minutes.

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.
