Aero the Acrobat 2 is the sequel to Aero the Acrobat. This game abandons the quest-based gameplay of the first game and instead goes for straight platformer levels. They also added a few new moves to Aero's arsenal.

According to the story, after Aero defeated Ektor the evil industrialist clown in the previous game, he decides to wander around Ektor's evil museum. Meanwhile Zero the Kamikaze squirrel rescues Ektor using his flying machine. While wandering the museum, Aero happens across a strange portal, which pulls him toward a far away past. Turns out the portal was a trap set by Ektor.

Gunstar Heroes (1993) is widely considered to be one of the best action games on the Sega Genesis, but, ironically, was commercially unsuccessful due to poor promotion. It features a variety of melee attacks, as well as 4 basic weapons which can be combined in pairs (making a total of 14 combinations) — all densely packed in a swift and explosion-heavy gameplay spanning over seven uniquely designed stages. The author takes special care to showcase all the moves the game is capable of, using every possible attack and having lots of fun playing around in autoscrolling sections.

This movie is 3 minutes longer than the previous one due to playing on hardest difficulty and using both Gunstars at the same time. See the author's comments for more details.

The encodes for this movie are also slightly larger than usual — this is due to an amount of colors and on-screen motion even the best codecs have problems coping with.


arkiandruski has provided an audio commentary for this movie, available here. He watches his run's encode and speaks along, play back your own copy as you listen to him.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Platform
Conquest of the Crystal Palace is the story of a boy and his dog who overthrow an evil rock (or is it a brain?). It offers some cool mechanics like being able to use the dog as a platform and have it attack enemies for you.

In this run arkiandruski improves the predecessor movie by 24.85 seconds. A large part of the improvement comes from a faster 2nd stage boss fight, but there are minor movement optimizations throughout.


The movie file, as well as all the encodes, have the author's commentary in the form of soft subtitles.

This improved TAS by Alyosha and the previous run's author reduces a lot of lag and features a faster Stage 2 boss fight.

Bonanza Bros. (1991) is a shooter-platform game that was first released in the arcades and then ported to the Sega Genesis, and can be played in a cooperative 2 player mode.

The plot involves the Bonanza Brothers: Robo and Mobo, who resemble the Blues Brothers, but are thieves who steal many treasures from banks, mansions and casinos.

This is an improvement of 29.06 seconds when comparing to level improvements as well as some better optimization and abandoning your brother to the police.


The author's created witty commentary provided in the movie file in place of the brothers talking over one another in who's the perfectionist.

Batman is a game that closely follows the plot of the Tim Burton movie of the same name. In it, you follow Batman from the beginning of the movie through the birth and the death of the Joker.

Of course the movie doesn't involve Batman going through walls or dying to achieve his objective quicker.

Obviously, in this movie the author opts to use mostly the speed ring...
