- Unofficial game
- Genre: Platform
Bible Adventures is one of many unlicensed games produced by Wisdom Tree. This particular game offers three modes of play.

This run plays through the "Baby Moses" mode, of how his mother "got a papyrus basket for him ... and placed the child in it and put it ... along the bank of the Nile". This apparently entails avoiding a horde of enemies in the process.

Thus, before Moses can let his people go, Aglar goes as fast as possible by taking a page from the wrong Bible book and walking on water (wouldn't that have made crossing the Red Sea just a little bit easier?) as well as directly through many of the enemies and obstacles preventing one from reaching the right edge of the level.

Castle of Illusion is one of the earlier games for the Genesis. Mickey must collect seven jewels to reach the final boss and save Minnie. He attacks enemies either by flinging apples at them, or by smothering them with his cast-iron buttocks.

This run is around 50 seconds faster than the previous run, thanks to new tricks/glitches and better optimisation. Please read the author's comments for more information on the new tricks and glitches.

Fast bouncing around. This is a run of Sonic the Hedgehog which avoids zipping (gaining a large speed boost from being inside terrain), unlike the other run of this game. Therefore, most levels cannot be skipped, and instead have to be traversed using a more normal route, although the author still finds a couple of alternative methods to take shortcuts (it is hard to define hard rules to ban all glitches). In this run, the game is completed without collecting the Chaos Emeralds.

There are also runs where Knuckles and Tails they take advantage of their own abilities to finish the game in record time.

Sonic bounces around surprisingly fast. The lack of Spin Dash makes the strategy a bit different from that of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Sonic 3 & Knuckles runs, since preserving your momentum becomes a lot more important. However, this doesn't prevent the author from achieving crazy velocities even with such a significant limitation. In this run, the game is completed without collecting any emeralds.

This is the ninth publication of this branch, improving on the previous effort by 7.88 (of in-game time), due to even tighter optimization and some new shortcuts.

There are also runs where Knuckles and Tails they take advantage of their own abilities to finish the game in record time.

To see a movie of this game that doesn't take advantage of zips, watch the "no zips" run by Aglar.

We also have movies in Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic the Hedgehog CD and Sonic 3 & Knuckles


Every second encode link leads to a camhacked version. But don't expect the videos where Sonic is visible offscreen to make any more sense than the original ones!

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (1992) was the game that introduced the Super Dash Attack. The ability, referred to as Spin Dash in later games, has become one of the most beloved features of the series and, indeed, one of the most prominent features of the speedrunning scene as a whole.

In this exhilarating movie, Aglar speeds his way through this classic's varied acts making good use of Spin Dashes to finish them in record time. The author also controls Tails—Sonic's two-tailed foxy buddy—to allow for even faster routes and making shorter work of bosses.

This is an improvement of 50.76 seconds over the previous movie, thanks to better routes and general optimization as explained in the author's comments.

Batman: Return of the Joker (1991) is the sequel to the first Batman game for the NES. Being one of the later NES titles, it shows surprisingly good and fluid visuals, fullsize art, and decent sound — all without slowdown issues!

The gameplay has undergone some changes compared to its predecessor. A welcome addition to it is a slide movement, similar to the one in the Mega Man series. A not-so-welcome addition is that half the stages are autoscrolling, and there are no close combat weapons now.

Battle Kid: Fortress of Peril may look old, but it's actually released in 2010! It's still possible to buy a new NES cartridge of this game online!

Mainly inspired by the PC game I Wanna Be the Guy, this game is classic platforming action, where anything can kill the player in one single hit. While it's not unfair (as opposed to I Wanna Be the Guy), it's still really hard.

Aglar collects every item and key before going to the last area, and takes the right path to get to the best ending, all of this on the hardest difficulty possible and without taking any damage!

Bionic Commando (1988) is a platform game with a hero who can't jump, but he can quickly latch onto objects with his bionic arm. The original (Japanese) version of the game literally translates as The Resurrection of Hitler: Top Secret. Nintendo censored the Nazi references for the North American version.

Aglar's first contribution to Bionic Commando features inhumanly fast grappling and swinging. The run is an improvement of 17.33 seconds over the previous run due to a new trick.

For more swinging goodness, check out Bionic Commando for the Game Boy.

Chip 'n Dale - Rescue Rangers is based on the animated TV series. In this ridiculously easy and straightforward game, the Rangers look for their neighbor's kitty and end up fighting against their old nemesis, Fat Cat.

Duck Tales is a classic game in which Scrooge has to collect treasures from all over the world. Some of the levels are not completely straightforward, and collecting items is sometimes necessary before proceeding. His cane also doubles as an almighty pogo stick that can be used in various ways, which makes jumping a lot more fun.

This is the fifth TAS of Duck Tales. Minor improvements and refined strategies here and there contributed an additional few seconds of improvement.

This is a 8½ second improvement over the previous movie due to a new glitch being abused.

Gimmick! is a very short game that was only released in Japan and Europe. It's about a small green creature who can summon stars to help him defeat monsters and to use them as platforms to reach high places and travel fast.

Aglar improves on the previous submission by about 33 seconds. Improvements come from new and increased glitch abuse, better precision, and using lots of new strategies.

This movie here does not collect the special items required to access the secret 7th level which the other Gimmick!-run does.

Once you get past McDonald's blatant advertising and the fact that this game is about Ronald the clown, this game is actually quite good. The controls are a bit slippery but the level design more than makes up for it.

In this particular movie the author collects only the cards that are necessary to complete the game. If you want to see all the cards collected and the secret levels played, check the other movie of this game.

An improvement of 58 seconds arises from better acceleration techniques and strategic differences.

Marble Madness is an isometric game similar in its style to Snake Rattle 'n Roll. The objective in these two games is quite different, though. In this game, the player must roll a marble from one point to another. This is, of course, not as easy as it sounds, and certainly not as easy as it looks in this movie.

Aglar improved adelikat and Deign's movie by 5.10 seconds.

A second encode is available using a camera hack to focus on the marble, which subtly alters the gameplay. Also, you can see this movie played back on an actual NES!

Mega Man 3 (USAのロックマン3) is the first game in the Mega Man / Rockman series to introduce sliding (though the ability to charge the Mega Buster would have to wait until game 4). It also introduced Rush the robotic dog, who provides the abilities of Rush Coil, Rush Marine, and Rush Jet. Furthermore, after you beat the 8 robot masters, the game makes you revisit modified versions of four stages to fight the Doc Robots, who imitate the robot masters from Mega Man 2. This set a precedent in the Mega Man series to have additional stages between the main robot masters and Dr. Wily.

This run completes the game about 48 seconds faster than the previous movie, thanks to lag reduction, optimization, and some new strategies.

This Star Wars game is quite versatile. It features a sort of overworld, optional items and quests, a lot of platformer action, some first-person spaceship shooting and you even get to blow up the Death Star! You can't see all of that in this movie, but it's very entertaining nonetheless. The game's plot is based on the first Star Wars movie (Episode IV), and it even features some of the movie's awesome music.

This run improves the previous movie by almost two minutes thanks to optimized movement and a new shortcut.

Ufouria is a game that was strangely never released in the United States, even though it was released in Europe in addition to Japan (where it's known as Hebereke).

The game itself is a Metroid-style adventure: it takes place in a world that can be freely explored and several items need to be found and bosses defeated in order to gain access to some areas that initially seem inaccessible.

This run beats the previously published one by 1:39.84 due to newly explored tricks and better optimization.

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.
