The Minish Cap is an addition to The Legend of Zelda series that sees our hero fight Ganondorf Vaati, retrieve and power up the Master Sword Picori Sword to once again save the land of Hyrule and rescue Princess Zelda.

Following the constant advice of a talking hat and utilizing unique items as well as getting more use out of an ocarina than simply getting around, Tompa completes this task in record time, putting Vaati back in his place in a mere hour and 48 minutes!

Maui Mallard in Cold Shadow (1996) was among the later games released on SNES, which had its positive impact on production values. As a result, the game sports remarkable design and animation quality.

In addition to that, it stars Donald Duck in the role of Maui Mallard, a detective with an alter ego of a blindfolded ninja called Cold Shadow, on the task of retrieving the lost Shabum Shabum idol on a remote tropical island. And no, the plot doesn't get more sensible from that point on.

SNES Zelda completed in a very quick manner by traveling in an alternate dimension through the walls. The basis of the trick is to enter a corridor or staircase by holding left+up+right at the bottom of the stairs.

This movie is just 1 frame faster than the preceding version.

Full completion of The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.

Both this run and the short version use a wobbling trick in order to make Link walk a bit faster. The execution of this maneuver requires the usage of a controller that allows the player to press Up+Down simultaneously (such as, in this case, a modified Snes9x's controller). The traveling-through-walls trick that is seen in the short version is not used.

This run features an improvement of a little over 4 minutes.

SNES Zelda completed in a very quick manner. The trick that is used to cut completion time by so much is holding left+up+right while entering a corridor or staircase, allowing Link to clip through the wall and walk out of bounds.

This movie is an astonishing minute and a half faster than the preceding version thanks to some new glitches.

The Lion King, based on the famous Disney movie, is a platform game where you control Simba - initially as a young cub, and later as an adult lion. The plot of the game follows the plot of the movie. Each of the levels represents a part of the movie.

Watch as Tompa climbs walls, clones hyenas, and sticks his face in lava in order to beat this difficult game in a brisk 13 minutes.

For a TAS of the slightly different Genesis port, look no further than here.

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.
