Astyanax (1990) is the story of a studly 16-year-old boy named Astyanax who is summoned to the world of Remlia in order to save the enchantress Princess Rosebud from the evil wizard Blackhorn, who wants to rule the world.

It is a somewhat clumsy game. For one, Astyanax is twice as big as he appears, and so he is easily hit unless one plays carefully. The controls are also very bad. The sum of these factors is that it's a difficult game to play, but that's part of what makes this movie interesting—especially for those who have played this game.

Thanks to effective lag management and using a different weapon, the author has achieved 85 seconds worth of improvement over the previous movie by Walker Boh.

Much faster than the single player version, Chip and Dale carry each other, throw each other, abuse balloons and zip as they once again go after Fat Cat.

This nine second improvement came from thorough lag reduction and a new glitch among other things. You can find more information in the author's comments.

This run illustrates very well the advantage of using two-player mode. Much faster than the single-player version, Chip and Dale carry each other, throw each other, abuse balloons and zip as they once again go after Fat Cat.

The improvement by dragonxyk comes now with Chip and Dale zipping on each other.

Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers 2 is quite an improvement over the original Chip 'n Dale in terms of graphics and a whole lot of other things. Thankfully, the original game's solid controls haven't been changed. The plot of this game is that Fat Cat has stolen the Pharaoh's Urn and wants to use its power (for evil purposes, of course).

This movie by dragonxyk is 13 seconds faster than the previous run.

Like the first movie, a two-player run makes for some interesting things, like Chip and Dale carrying each other around, and heavy abuse of death to take advantage of balloons. By killing off one character, he respawns on a floating balloon, thus going ahead of the other character. Unlike the first, however, this run frequently destroys bosses by using one of the characters as a weapon. Only in the Chip 'n Dale series can such apparently irrational action be justified.

This movie, the second submission for this game by dragonxyk, is a 18.55-second improvement over the previous movie. See here for a run with just Chip.

Kick Master (1991) stars a hero named Thonolan, who really likes kicking things. Obviously, the first thing you'll see him doing is kicking some odd-looking trinkets out of the enemies. By doing so repeatedly and collecting the trinkets like a true hero, he levels up and gains new abilities, allowing him to kick the various enemies stronger and faster than before. You will marvel at the laws of physics being stomped by Thonolan's feet.

This game loops, and has to be completed once in order to unlock a higher difficulty mode, but since all it does is double the enemies' HP, it has been considered unnecessary.

Dragonxyk's take on this game is 26 seconds faster than the previous movie by nesrocks.
