- Best ending
- Genre: Action
- Genre: Platform
The seven rainbow bridges, connecting the seven rainbow islands, have disappeared. King Dedede is to blame as always... or is he? The evil Dark Matter has him under his control and plans to turn Dream Land into a dark world. Kirby aims to save the day by going through seven worlds, aided this time by three animal friends (though you never see Rick the Hamster used in this run).

To get the true ending to the game, the player has to find a rainbow drop on each island, which form the rainbow sword after the main showdown with Dedede. These rainbow drops are hidden off the main paths of the stages, and most of them require a special power to break the barrier guarding the drop. This has a large effect on the route in some stages.

was0x's run is over five minutes faster than the previous run by Soulrivers. Part of this is due to cutscene skips after bosses, though this run is also much more optimized. Details can be found in the submission comments.

Cheetahmen II is the unfinished sequel to game #52 of Action 52. The game contains 6 of the 10 levels originally proposed, in which the player takes control of Apollo, Hercules, and Aries, switching off every two levels.

This run is done with a patched ROM that allows all 6 levels to be played without invoking rare glitches.

Cheetahmen II is the unfinished sequel to game #52 of Action 52. The game contains 6 of the 10 levels originally proposed, in which the player takes control of Apollo, and Hercules, Aries, swiching off after every second level. Sadly, it's only possible to play 4 of the levels without altering the ROM image or experiencing a very rare glitch that starts the game with Aries. was0x completes these four levels in 2:20.26, but a run of the hacked game with all 6 levels may obsolete this one.

Created by a Japanese comedian who hated video games, this game was meant to be near impossible to complete. Rumor has it that at one point the player must leave the controller untouched for 1 hour and fight a "final boss" with over a million hit-points. Although this isn't true, the game makes no sense, which is why it is so hard to beat.

The author, was0x, instead completes the game in a mere 4 minutes by simply walking off the edge of existence and magically ending at the final treasure room.

He also beats his previous run by 0.19 seconds by really tight improvements.

If you want to see more of the game, we also have a run that forgoes the warp glitch.

In this run, was0x completes the game without using the "scrolling glitch", the only major timesaver in the game. We also have a run demonstrating that glitch.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Action
The Last Ninja is a port of System 3's The Last Ninja 2 to the NES. It follows the plot of the original game, namely that Armakuni is mysteriously teleported to modern-age New York City to defeat the evil Kunitoki once again. Notable changes in this port are vastly different music and less graphical detail.

This is an improvement of 15.65 seconds over the previous movie, thanks to better optimisation and jumping to a transition screen.

This game doesn't count completion percent, but it still has stuff to accomplish to meet the expectation from a full completion run. The author, was0x's, defined it as follows:

  • All depletable chests
  • Unlock all menus
  • Kill Culex and Jinx
  • Star firework in credits
  • Get all unique items/equips
