- Uses death to save time
- Genre: Platform
- Genre: Shooter
This game, ostensibly a spin-off of the Contra series, began life as a completely unrelated game, yet still manages to invoke the spirit of the other games in being an insanely difficult, one-hit-kills-you shooter.

Contra Force offers a selection of one of four characters, a jumping glitch involving the pause screen, and lots and lots of lag - and yet the game is still completed remarkably quickly.

If what was done with this movie was possible in real life, economies worldwide would crash.

The author abuses an oversight in the game that could cause an item to be sold more than it costs. This oversight only exists in the Japanese version.

- Genre: Platform
Hook is an NES game based on the movie of the same name. Unlike the SNES game based on the same movie, this game is less linear, though there are still a limited number of effective routes on the map screen. Also, four items need to be collected to beat the game.

GlitchMan plays through this game quickly, using some collision glitches which allow him to do things like fall through floors (as the screenshot for this movie shows). For more details, see the author's comments.
