Of all the games based on the movie Jurassic Park III, this one follows the plot most closely. Paleontologist Alan Grant has crash-landed on Isla Sorna and must now travel across eight levels full of dinosaurs to reach the rescue boat on the other side. Along the way, he can pick up items like the flare gun to blast his way through the dinosaurs in his path as well as some tough boss dinosaurs.

A simple platformer (similar to some Mario games) that illustrates damage abuse well. The player does not go out of the way to pick up items.

Selected quote from author: Introduction: Tom and Jerry is a kid’s cartoon where the mouse generally triumphs, with the cat being ignominiously defeated. The video game is a side scroller, with a lot of up-and-down motion as well. Jerry can take 4 hits before dying – the fifth kills him.

North & South is a humorous, cartoony kind of game about an incredibly bloody war. In it, you move army units around on a board until you approach your opponent, at which point a battle phase occurs. The author, Chamale, taking control of the North, fights a mere two battles to complete the game in 1:20.15, preserving the union. Poor horses...

In River City Ransom, Alex and Ryan face off against gangs of students and evil bosses to win their town back and rescue their girlfriends.

A glitch is used often in this run when left and right are pressed at the same time, which causes the player to do all sorts of crazy things, and usually lose all of his power. This is done to reduce lag during running segments. The boss battles are fought with style in mind, using a variety of attack methods throughout.

For a River City Ransom movie which, instead of aiming purely for speed, concentrates more on goofing around, click here.

In River City Ransom, Alex and Ryan face off against gangs of students and evil bosses to win their town back and rescue their girlfriends. Several bosses need to be found and beaten before you can enter River City High and beat up the final bad guys (including an obvious imitation of the Double Dragon heroes). The gameplay also has elements of an RPG, where you can level up your character with shop purchases, but none of that is done here.

This is a run that only uses Ryan, who is normally Player 2. This has some very important differences compared to the two-player speedrun. One cutscene is significantly shorter when playing only as Ryan. There is less lag, though there are also fewer glitches and acrobatics. More boss fights, especially at the end, use the boss's superior strength against him, taking advantage of an exploit with kicking trash cans. For more details, see the run's submission comments.

This run obsoletes the previous one by nearly a minute due to much more optimization of boss fights and some new tricks. Weapons are also used more, so expect to see some chains and trash cans!
