Altered Space is an isometric platformer similar to Solstice for the NES where you play as Humphrey, a brave astronaut. The goal is simply to escape the spaceship without running out of air, which is lost over time or if you get hit. There are items that can be used to stun enemies as well, but aren't seen in this run due to the time it takes to open the item menu.

Batman returns to stop the Joker's latest insane criminal plot once again, 17 seconds faster than the last time!

This game is one of those grappling hook games, with which Batman can just swing through areas quickly. Much of the improvement comes from bunnybathopping Batman's way through levels and somewhat improved boss fights.

The beautiful Fairy Land has been ruled by the evil demon Geyla for a thousand years. You are a nameless spelunker who is searching for treasure. You are told to defeat Geyla and to free the Fairy Land. But you are unsure about your motivation. Do you really wish to save the world, or are you just interested in all those treasures buried deep in mountain caves? You have a special meter called Toku that will indicate exactly how much you are interested in saving the world, and how much in grabbing treasures. Your actions will influence the outcome of the story.

In Spelunker 2, there are 3 characters to pick from, each has different weapons and ability. In this TAS, the character Esper is used to complete the game in 15 minutes 12 seconds using ESP (set and warp to teleport point).

Even though the gameplay of this game doesn't look very interesting, the creators have been playful with the graphics of the game. It almost looks like NES supports layers, which it doesn't.

Ventuz - the author - improves the previous movie by 11.66.

- Uses death to save time
- Takes damage to save time
- Heavy glitch abuse
- Genre: Platform
The Addams Family (1991) is an extremely difficult game in which Gomez Addams must find his missing family members and recover the family's home from their greedy lawyer, Tully Alford. Gomez must collect US$1,000,000 in order to get through the security door in the basement. The game is very badly programmed; Gomez must avoid objects by a significant distance in order to avoid taking damage.

Using a new route, new glitches and some time-saving deaths, ventuz improves his previous run by almost 2 minutes.

We also have runs of the SNES and Game Boy versions of the game.

An extremely short game based on the Karate Kid movie. The author explains that some movements might not seem optimal, which is because the player has to avoid both entering bonus stages hidden everywhere around the levels and kicking bosses offscreen. If a boss goes offscreen, it regains all of its health, which of course isn't a good thing.

Had the kid been this strong in the movie, it would certainly have been… interesting.

This movie is a about a one and a half second improvement over the previous run.

Lufia 2 is an adventure RPG prequel to Lufia 1. In this installment, Maxim and his cohorts set out to take down the evil Sinistrals.

Normally, the game sports a large amount of puzzles, yet a shockingly low amount of battles. In this movie, however, ventuz abuses the "Lv.0 glitch" (read the submission comments for more details), which lets one access limited event triggers in memory. This allows him to reach the ending in 4 minutes and 11.77 seconds.


Note: The encodes provide commentary and explanations by the author as soft subtitles.

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.
