- Unofficial game
- Genre: Platform
The Dizzy series of computer games was one of the most successful computer game brands of the late eighties. They were all based around a central figure, an intelligent egg-like creature called Dizzy.

Dizzy the Adventurer is an enhanced NES port of the sixth game in the series, Dizzy: Prince of the Yolkfolk, completed fast by the use of creative routes and of course, maximum speed.

There is also a run of the second game in the series, Treasure Island Dizzy.

- Genre: Puzzle
Combining the Nintendo DS's touch screen capabilities with a classic puzzle game and adding in a touch of the tool-assisted yields... a tool-assisted run of a classic puzzle game, joining the ranks of several other quirky movies similar in character. While tool-assistance may on the surface seem trivial in this case, a decidedly non-trivial amount of luck manipulation was used to create a cube solvable in the fewest possible moves. Further, the game only counts moves in quarter turns, making the number of moves used even more impressive.
