E.T. The Extraterrestial, based on the film of the same name, is one of the worst video games ever released. It contributed to Atari's massive financial losses during 1983 and 1984. As a result of overproduction and returns, millions of unsold cartridges were buried in an Alamogordo, New Mexico landfill.

The game was developed in five weeks and Atari decided to skip audience testing for the product due to time limitations.

For our first Atari 2600 movie, partners in crime adelikat and Cardboard assemble the interplanetary telephone and call E.T.'s home planet in a record-breaking 25.25 seconds. For details on how they did it, read the authors' commentary.

Super Mario Bros 2 is one of our most competed games. This movie is adelikat and Cardboard's contribution of 39 frames (approximately 0.65 seconds) over DonamerDragon's attempt to perfect this route.

Most of the tricks are however the same ― tricks which were discovered by various authors, such as Zaku, Sleepz, Genisto, Phil and DonamerDragon.

If you are wondering how some of the tricks in this video work, see the Super Mario Bros. 2 tricks page.

This run played on a real NES

Warpless Super Mario Bros. 2 -- again more than half a minute faster than the previous movie by a different author. According to the authors, time was gained from optimized movements, different routes, different character selection, optimized battles and some new glitches.

Kyle Reese clearly had a difficult time trying to save Sarah Connor in the hit movie The Terminator. But when the Sega CD video game tie-in's difficulty is set to "Super!", you wonder just how the hell Kyle made it two steps before dying. It really makes you feel like Kyle must have felt in a hopeless future where everything can kill within a few seconds frames. You know that a game is too hard when even the TAS looks like it is struggling just to keep the character alive.
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.
