- Best ending
- Heavy luck manipulation
- Genre: Platform
The Animaniacs are a cartoon comedy trio, known for old school Warner Brothers style comedy mixed with some scathing political commentary.

This platformer of their namesake captures their personality well, with some comical and colorful animations. The author adds in his own techniques of walking on air and creating small scenes within the game while playing, especially during boss fights.

This game has a built in roulette, which is manipulated to always give the best result, especially invincibility when needed for tougher bosses.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Action
- Genre: Platform
Mr. Nutz is a happy-go-lucky anthropomorphic red squirrel who saves the world from Mr. Blizzard who, apparently, is trying to turn the world into ice, possibly to combat global warming.

DaTel237 skillfully controls Mr. Nutz by making him hop like a jack rabbit on speed, throwing acorns all over the place and avoiding pesky coins whenever possible. A number of tricks and glitches are used, including floor zipping.

When Merlin was a young Sokoban man, he enjoyed life through minecart-surfing, skin-diving and burrow-crawling. Abusing glitchy spells and items, he wandered the world along with a frozen lady who came from the lake, in the Meanwhile, occasionally beating bad things like meanie trees, yestoday's launch and even a crouching dragon.

The author collects all heart pieces and other non-respawning items even without actually touching all of them. However, it is pretty sad that the prize T-shirt will never seem to be awarded with, although the "100% heart pieces collected" screen after the credits says so.
