- Takes damage to save time

- Genre: Action
E-SWAT: City Under Siege is a story about a cop who dreams of wearing a cybernetic jetpack suit and becoming a killing machine. His dream comes true.

More seriously, this game stars the police officer Duke Oda trying to clean up the crime in the city of Liberty and fight the crime organization E.V.E. Some more details about the game can be found here. The variety of available weapons, and the use of a jetpack (denoted Burner), make this an entertaining action-packed movie.

This run features a 9-second improvement over the preceding version.

- Pacifist version
- Uses warps
- Genre: RPG
Might and Magic II: Gates to Another World is an RPG with some amazingly grand scope. Levels up to 255, hp to 65535, +63 weapons, battles with 255 opponents, time travel, and characters dying of old age.

This run takes care of money problems by finding a nameless, glitched party member and taking all his stuff. Teleportation is used in some places it normally can't be by resting to reset the forbidden flag. Walking backwards is employed when it reduces screen draw time. Temple blessings are used rather than a cleric, and items are used instead of a sorcerer.

- Uses death to save time
- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Platform
Shinobi 3 is a high class platformer with amazing graphics and sound. You control the ninja Musashi, who in this update has many new moves and abilities. He begins the game armed with 0 shurikens, but apparently someone felt the need to leave some conveniently in his way to use.

The author shows an extremely entertaining route featuring abuse of the Jump kick move, using wallkicks to fly up sheer cliffs, and even sacrificing lives to smash bosses.

During autoscroll sections Dammit is sure to entertain you by insulting the inept hordes of enemies, insulting the Genesis hardware itself in one special palette error case, and pulling some disappearing acts crazy enough to be worthy of a Ninja. He also made 2 minutes and 45 seconds of the previous run disappear in a cloud of smoke.

- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Action
In Revenge of Shinobi, the prequel to Shinobi III, you play as a ninja (what else?) who is capable of destroying an entire army of other ninjas, soldiers, and Hollywood characters. The fast attack animation of the ninja (one of which throws fireballs everywhere) makes up for his lack of speed.

This is the author's first submission for this game, beating out two others who also had submissions.

- Major skip glitch
- Heavy glitch abuse
- Genre: RPG
Might and Magic, released in 1986, was the first installment in the series that would later evolve into a whole fictional universe, encompassing both the actual M&M games and a multitude of subseries and spin-offs made in their own genres, including King's Bounty, Heroes of Might & Magic, and others.

Normally, this game is rather long. This movie by Dammit skips most of it by using a glitch that allows the player to get all the important items in a matter of a few minutes.


We strongly recommend reading the author's comments for further details and explanations. The primary downloadable (HQ) encode has the author's commentary as subtitles.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Action
In a not-so-canonical sequel to Metal Gear, Solid Snake returns with newfound abilities to stop his own bullets, take minor damage to avoid major damage, and use cans of tuna to replenish his breath while underwater.

For those interested, the author has provided a Lua script that allows you to view the HP of enemies, bomb timers, hostages rescued, and body count when using FCEUX to play the movie.

- Aims for in-game time instead of real-time
- Heavy luck manipulation
- Uses hardest difficulty
- Starts from a saved state or SRAM
- Genre: Fighting
Bushido Blade is a series of fighting games with a gimmick: everyone can die in one hit. This kind of gameplay lends itself well to time attacking and TASing.

Slash Mode is an unlockable feature where the challenge is to kill 100 opponents as fast as possible. This game adds on to the original Bushido Blade's Slash Mode with an on-screen timer and more variety in enemies and environments.

In this run, Dammit runs through Slash Mode as fast as possible, finishing with an ingame time of 3'34"76.

Monsters have blown up and escaped from a top secret Psychic Research facility and stolen one of the lovely lab assistants as well. Dr. Knavik gives Lucia his precious ESP Booster to save her twin sister Cecile.

By collecting various items on her travels, the ESP Booster grants Lucia various powers (kind of like Mega Man...) to destroy her enemies and also navigate quickly through levels. This is exacerbated for the author by poor hit detection and finicky input control. Input is only allowed one time every four frames. Nevertheless the end result is a fast paced and varied movie.

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.
