Altered Beast is a game that looks like it could have been found in an arcade playing machine. In each level, the player must beat collect 3 powerups in order to transform into a powerful beast and fight the boss of that level. This game was one of the first games of the Sega Genesis system.

This might look like it's an auto-scrolling game, but in fact the scroll speed depends on if there are any enemies on screen. The player tries to kill all enemies as soon as possible to increase the scroll speed.

Selected comments from author:
I chose this game because it is known to be one of the worst Genesis games ever made, so I thought i'd give it a shot.
It's a quite short game, and this movie doesn't even visit 2 of the 4 rooms that you go to.

This game has a lot of bosses, to say the least. Because the author speeds through levels so quickly, it is possible that the amount of time fighting bosses may actually be greater than the amount of time completing the level in order to reach them.

Supposedly, this game is about an alien taking control over earth, but since the first level says "Казахская ССР" (Kazakhskaya SSR, Kazahkstan in Soviet), there are small red stars everywhere, and one of the bosses holds a hammer and sickle, I think we all know what this game is really about.

Selected quotes from author:
This game is, in my opinion, extremely hard and seeing it beaten taking this quickly and with so few hits is quite impressive. There were some points when I took a hit in order to increase the speed, but otherwise I avoided as many as possible.

Paraphrased comments from the author:

Here is my movie for the Genesis version of Lion King, almost 100 seconds faster than Ouzo's previously submitted one. This game roughly follows the plot of one of the highest grossing movies worldwide, but if you are watching this 'tool-assisted speedrun' for the story, you will be missing out.

Jackie-chan improved again, by 34 seconds.

This game has a quite functional soundtrack.
The timeattack might be a little long, but it's almost flawless and quite relaxing to watch and listen to.

A fast-paced platform game somewhat similar to megaman.

This improves the previous run from Exim by over 2 minutes.

This run played on a real NES

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is a platform game very loosely based on the classic American novel. Tom has fallen asleep in class and you must help him navigate through his dream and defeat dangerous monsters on his way to save Becky from Injun Joe.

The author, Dan_, beats this odd game in just over ten minutes.

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.
