- Genre: Fighting
Mortal Kombat: Tournament Edition is a standalone game which acts as a sort of expansion to the GBA version of Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance. It has different characters, better AI and some bug fixes compared to the original GBA game.

Here, AKheon plays the Tag Team mode, where he chooses a team of two fighters to fight against other teams. The characters can be swapped at any time during a match.

If you're looking for a run that abuses a lot of crazy glitches in a handheld fighting game, then look no further, you have it right here!

The author also did tool-assisted playarounds on Mortal Kombat II (Game Boy version) and Mortal Kombat Advance.

Mortal Kombat Advance is a port of the classic Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, for a handheld console. A terrible one at that. This one features a different engine, full of glitches, lousy controls and an even cheaper AI.

AKheon makes the in-game fighters look like idiots by glitching the game in a lot of possible ways!

The author also did a tool-assisted playaround on Mortal Kombat II (Game Boy version) and on Mortal Kombat: Tournament Edition.

If you want your SNES UMK3 fix, you can check out this movie and this staff-recommended movie.

- Genre: Adventure
- Genre: Storybook
You probably know Nancy Drew. She's a popular fictional character who has a knack for solving (and attracting) all sorts of mysteries. Basically a Mary Sue, being rich, handsome, immensely talented and leading an exciting life.

As the game begins, she comes to a hotel owned by her friend's friend where accidents have been happening, and rumors even say that it's a ghost behind all the mayhem, perhaps exacting some sort of revenge from beyond the grave. But eventually we find out the problem is a much simpler and common one instead, human greed, and that there's really nothing supernatural going on in the hotel, with the exception of Nancy Drew herself, who knows solutions to puzzles without ever finding them and who causes other strange stuff to happen as well.

- Heavy luck manipulation
- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Fighting
Tekken Advance is a fighting game in the Tekken series. While it is not considered canon to the Tekken storyline, it follows the events of Tekken 3 and includes most of the characters. It also features new stun mechanics.

This run, done using the hardest difficulty and one round per opponent, uses careful luck manipulation and Paul's powerful Burning Fist to take out everyone as fast as possible. Input is ended early to show the founder of the King of Iron Fist tournament unable to hit an opponent who isn't even fighting back.

For more Tekken runs that aim for fastest time, see the Tekken 2 or Tekken 3 runs for the PlayStation.

Tekken Advance appears to be a good handheld port of the original arcade and PSX series, maintaining the Tekken spirit and physics despite the omission of some moves and characters.

AKheon plays around with another fighting game and, as always, succeeds in creating something impressive. This movie plays the game's unique Tag Battle mode, which allows the player to use 3 characters for each fight and switch between them at any time.

For more of Tekken Advance, see the run of the main mode.

Aside from the logo and some of the fighters, Mortal Kombat 4 for Game Boy Color has nothing to do with the original MK4.

Enjoy the hilarious badness of this game as AKheon beats down every fighter to finish in the fastest time possible.

RoboCop for the GBC is a top-down shooter made by Mirage Interactive and Titus. The game itself consists of large maze levels and the slow movement pace of RoboCop. The difficulty in this game can be very obnoxious.

In this run, the author makes usage of a simple L+R glitch which doubles RoboCop's speed without affecting camera speed if three directions at once are pressed. In addition to this, it even allows him to warp to the next screen immediately when he catches up to the edge of the camera view while performing this glitch, and if there is an adjacent room to the direction where he's going. This allows him to get through most troublesome walls. The author provides detailed comments which help understanding what is going on.

This movie has been obsoleted!

Click here to see the movie that obsoleted it.
Setting of the dream is a colorful, simplistic world, naivistic in its exaggerations and lack of realistic attributes. An open plain where the sun always seems to shine. But it's a foreign place, with Xena apparently having wound up there by an accident. She is lost, and her body shows out of ordinary signs. It's being the chubby girl of the classroom once again. Her emotional immaturity and insecurity has materialized in the most conniving manner right before our mortal eyes.

This nightmare ends in just 3 minutes and 37 seconds, however, thanks to the game being broken apart by some really severe glitches.

In this game, Xena finds herself in a dream, set in a colorful, simplistic world, naive in its exaggerations and lack of realistic attributes. It's an open plain where the sun always seems to shine. But it's a foreign place, with Xena apparently having wound up there by an accident. She is lost, and has to free herself from the dream world.

Now, this nightmare of a game ends 18.28 seconds faster than before! To learn more about AKheon's improvements on this movie, you can read the author's comments.

Mortal Kombat II was the first game of the Mortal Kombat series to feature a playable character-changing fighter (the sorcerer Shang Tsung). This run is played on the Game Boy port. Watch as AKheon humiliates the computer opponents, demonstrates some major glitches, and beats the game in just over 9 minutes.

The author also did a tool-assisted playaround on Mortal Kombat: Tournament Edition and on Mortal Kombat Advance.

Mortal Kombat: Deception is the sixth fighting game in the Mortal Kombat series, and the second one to use its engine, so that means it shouldn't be as loaded with bugs and glitches as previous games in the series, right? Maybe not.

- Contains speed/entertainment tradeoffs
- Takes damage to save time
- Heavy glitch abuse
- Genre: Platform
Before The Terminator came to the Genesis and Sega CD in various forms, it arrived on the NES... if the end result can even be called a game. Much running around ensues in a plot narrowly resembling the movie and glitches abound to no end.

Fortunately, most of the atrocities are crushed by completing the game too quickly for them to really sink in.
