Bugs Bunny & Taz: Time Busters is a Looney Tunes platform video game released for the Sony PlayStation and Microsoft Windows in 2000, and is an indirect sequel to the 1999 game Bugs Bunny: Lost in Time. Daffy Duck accidentally breaks Granny's Time Regulator and is thrown back in time with the core of this machine, a precious Time Gem. The time regulator goes haywire, hurtling various residents of different eras in time across time and space, and the gears that help the regulator function are scattered as well. Bugs Bunny arrives at Granny's house, and is tasked with finding the Time Gem, the gears, the lost characters, and Daffy with Granny's pet Taz.

lapogne36, using glitches, skips all the game's content and goes straight to the final boss, beating the game in record time.

Klonoa: Door to Phantomile is the critically acclaimed first game in the Klonoa series. It features the catlike Klonoa and his friend Huepow, a ring spirit. Together, they go on a journey to investigate a mysterious shipwreck that soon turns into a grand adventure to save the land from a powerful demon.

Like Kirby 64, the game is a 2.5D platformer. Klonoa can only move in two dimensions, but everything is rendered in 3D, allowing the path to curve and objects outside the path to be interacted with. Klonoa can attack by throwing Huepow at enemies and having him return with the enemy. Klonoa will then hold the enemy over his head, which allows him either to throw it another enemy or bounce off of it to jump into the air.

In this run, lapogne36 aims to complete the game in the fastest time, chaining enemy jumps and even using death as a shortcut at one point to complete the game in just over 45 minutes.

In this run, lapogne36 improves over his previous movie by 10:41.51 minutes thanks to better optimization and glitches found. For more information about these improvements reading the author's submission comments is highly recommended.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Platform
Pandemonium follows the adventuring duo of Nikki and Fargus through the land of Lyr. After they accidentally cast a magic spell that destroys a whole town, they set out to find the Wishing Engine to get it back. Their journey through this 2.5D platforming game features fast-paced gameplay and a number of unique powerups including animal transformations.

Watch for the author's careful use of damage boosts and speed management to fly through this game.


Note: PSXjin performs poorly emulating this game, which causes the camera to stutter at many points.

Sorcerer's Maze (released in Japan as Prism Land Story, or プリズム・ランド・ストーリー) is a Breakout clone for the PSX. It features more power-ups than you can shake a stick at. Giant lasers, tens of balls (or even hundreds, with a strange power-up), stars falling from the sky, and balls nearly as big as the level.

With tool assistance, all of this can be manipulated (to some extent). This run features quite a bit of planning and bonus management, the details of which can be found in the author's comments.

- Genre: Platform
In true platformer-sequel style, Spyro the Dragon's vacation is interrupted by a dinosaur-riding sorcerer by the name of Ripto invading the world of Avalar, who naturally needs to be stopped. Since vacation is the paramount concern of Spyro, this is naturally done as quickly as possible without any concern for the well-being of Avalar.

This run aims to beat the game as fast as possible while collecting 14 talismans (the minimum normally necessary to be able to fight Ripto). We also have a run that beats the game even faster by bypassing these items.

The author has also done a run for the first Spyro game.


A sound plugin with less-than-perfect sound reproduction (in particular during cutscenes like the ending cinematic, which are largely silent) is necessary for the run to sync; do not be alarmed if this affects your enjoyment of the movie.

Gnasty Gnorc is mad at the TV, since a reporter said he's not a threat and ugly. Because of that, he decided to trap all of the dragons in crystals. Only Spyro is spared, and he has to free them all.

The author, lapogne36, helps Spyro complete this task as fast as possible by exploiting glitches to boost his speed. You can learn more about this glitch by reading the author's comments.

The author has also done a run for the next game in the series.

- Heavy luck manipulation
- Genre: RPG
Tear Ring Saga:Yutona Eiyū Senki, as described by Wikipedia, is a game in the vein of Fire Emblem, created by Shouzou Kaga (Fire Emblem's creator) after his departure from Nintendo and their development house Intelligent Systems.

lapogne36 takes the game apart in a bit over three hours, thanks to a large dose of luck manipulation.

The very first game of the action-adventure franchise, featuring Lara Croft as she sets out on an expedition to recover a mysterious artifact called the Scion.

This TAS by lapogne36 uses the running jump as much as possible to move around faster, along with many other glitches and tricks. For more information, see the author's comments.

We also have a run of Tomb Raider Chronicles.
