Areas include the rooftops of Gotham City, Max Shreck's department store, the Red Triangle Circus and the sewers. Besides run-and-jump action, there's also a lot of combat in the game, as many of the Penguin's henchmen stand in Batman's way. He can knock them out with punches and kicks and a number of extra weapons stored in his utility belt. These include batarangs, which come in standard and self-seeking varieties, and smoke bombs that stun enemies for a while. In addition, Batman can shoot from his grappling gun and unleash a deadly swarm of bats towards enemies. All of these weapons have limited ammo, however, that must be collected.

Here's another run-of-the-mill platformer, released concurrently for the Amiga and Genesis/Mega Drive. Bubba, a delivery man for the local zoo, is abducted one day by aliens; accompanied by the appropriately-named sentient stick Stix they must try to find a way back home. As this run demonstrates, this takes a lot less time than you might expect.

- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Platform
Fantasia is the title of a side-scrolling video game developed by Infogrames and produced by Sega for its own Mega Drive/Genesis system. The game was loosely based on the film of the same name.

In the game, the player controls Mickey Mouse as the Sorcerer's Apprentice through various side-scrolling levels in an attempt to collect musical notes that somehow went missing whilst he was asleep. The game's four levels were based on amalgamations of the segments of Fantasia, each one around the elements: water (The Sorcerer's Apprentice, Dance of the Reed Flutes and Arabian Dance), earth (The Rite of Spring), air (Russian Dance, Pastoral Symphony and Dance of the Hours) and fire (Night on Bald Mountain, Toccata and Fugue in D Minor). The player defeats various enemies by jumping on them or by collecting magical bubbles that could be used to shoot at enemies as projectiles. In each level, the player collects a certain number of hidden magical notes in order for the song to play once again.

In this run, maTO makes his way through the game as fast as possible.

Generations Lost is an action-platformer developed for the Sega Genesis by Pacific Softscape and released by Time Warner Interactive in 1994. The player takes on the role of a young adventurous man named Monobe who is searching for the past of his people. He is equipped with an arm-mounted device called an "e-rad" and what is believed to be magic armor. These devices allow Monobe to project energy bolts and create energy ropes to swing on, in addition to basic fighting skills, running, jumping, and rolling. The player must use his skills and his devices to traverse the many strange lands of the game.

In this run, maTO runs, jumps, rolls, and swings his way throughout the world to find the mysterious past of his people.

In this action platformer loosely based on the famous film (and not to be confused with The Action Game or The Graphic Adventure), Indiana Jones travels the world to find the Holy Grail with whip in hand.

In this run, he grabs the Grail so fast you don't even see it coming — in fact the sequence in which the grail is chosen goes by before the screen finishes being drawn, so you don't even get to see that.

Enemy spies have been sent to buy military weapon technologies from scientists all around the world. Young Indiana Jones has been recruited to infiltrate the meeting locations and prevent the spies from leaving alive.

But Indy doesn't care about the deals and forgets to kill the spies other than the one in England, perhaps thinking, "What the heck, I climbed all the way up to the top of Big Ben; may as well actually defeat the spy this time."

Watch Young Indy blaze through this otherwise uninspiring game with unconventional techniques such as using gear wheels to suddenly appear on another floor and suiciding to avoid fighting bosses.

In this installment of the Turrican series, the evil force known as "The Machine" has once again come to bring destruction in order to take over the galaxy. Once again, Bren McGuire is the only one who can save the galaxy from evil!

This game was released as Turrican III for the Amiga before Factor 5 got Data East to port it to the Genesis/Mega Drive.

Like most of the previous games in this series, the protagonist has limited rolling power and limited use of super bombs. This forces the author to use some strategic choices to conquer these stages quickly, including occasionally dying to replenish bombs.

Shadow of the Beast is a somewhat inferior port of the Amiga hit released in 1989. The North American release was additionally criticized for sloppy conversion that made the game run 16.7% faster than intended and, as a result, sharply increased its difficulty.

Obviously it was no problem for maTO, who plunged through the game with impressive health management in just under 12 minutes.

In this direct sequel to the original (once again ported from the Amiga, in a much better fashion but with distorted sound), the hero's sister is kidnapped and he must pursue the same villain as the original to rescue her and settle the score.

With some glitch abuse, a helping of taking damage, and very little difficulty, the author of this run accomplishes this in less than seven minutes (just over half the time of the original game).

Sylvester and Tweety in Cagey Capers was the first game to star the iconic Looney Tunes duo. As Sylvester, your goal is to catch Tweety as he moves across the level away from you. The game has a difficulty slider adjusting how hard the canary is to catch. Of course, this TAS slides it all the way up.

This run utilizes tricks to move Tweety forward in the level, including scaring and swiping at him, until he can be caught at the end. The author, maTO, catches the bird in all levels in a little over 5 minutes.

For a run of a game with a similar mechanic, see Tom and Jerry: The Movie.

This game is really Turrican II, with the application of a film licence that was picked up late in the development of the port. Think of the gameplay as kind of like Contra with the morph ball ability from the Metroid series and you have an idea of what you'll see here.
