E.T. The Extraterrestial, based on the film of the same name, is one of the worst video games ever released. It contributed to Atari's massive financial losses during 1983 and 1984. As a result of overproduction and returns, millions of unsold cartridges were buried in an Alamogordo, New Mexico landfill.

The game was developed in five weeks and Atari decided to skip audience testing for the product due to time limitations.

Using new tricks, CoolKirby manages to drag the phone components from the pits of doom 0.15 faster. For details, read the author's commentary.

You and your grandfather just bought a small farm for growing vegetables and raising horses. Unfortunately, you find that the place is infested with animals that are determined to drive you away. Using your trusty gun, you aim to rid the property of these pests.

This run completes the first three levels, after which there is no new content. A trick is used to end the bonus levels immediately by shooting Gramps.

Choplifter is one of the few games that got ported from home systems to the arcade instead of the other way around. The goal of the game is to pilot an attack chopper to rescue 64 hostages from the clutches of the evil Bungeling Empire.

Besides being fun to play in real-time, it's also well-suited for TASing. It has fast-paced and lag-free gameplay, nice graphics, and simple mechanics. Both moving up and down and rotating the helicopter don't decrease your horizontal speed, which is great for both optimization and entertainment.

In this run, CoolKirby uses tool-assisted precision and tricks like blasting open enemy camps as soon as possible to beat the game in under three minutes.

We also have a movie of the Commodore 64 version.

- Uses death to save time
- Genre: Action
Frogger 2 is a portable extension of the original Frogger. Once again, five frogs have wandered across the pond and Frogger has to rescue them. But this time around, our green hero has a lot more distance to cover. There are five large themed worlds he must hop through with dangerous new enemies like bees, rolling boulders and lava cauldrons.

The author, CoolKirby, races Frogger madly through the levels and rescues all of the babies in just under 10 minutes.

In this game featuring the famous SpongeBob SquarePants, SpongeBob stumbles upon a legendary statue that opens the way to the Dutchman’s Underworld. SpongeBob must unlock the statue and defeat the Flying Dutchman to get the Golden Spatula and become the Master Fry Cook.

To beat this game in slightly more than seven and a half minutes, the author, CoolKirby, abuses the game's horrendous jumping mechanics, forgoes several unnecessary weapon upgrades, and avoids fighting with most minor enemies. For more information, see the submission.

Here, CoolKirby improves on the previous co-authored run by 6.04 seconds through slightly different routes, a couple of new tricks, and better optimization. For more information, see the author's comments.

- Forgoes warps

- Genre: Platform
Pac-Land is a classic platformer in which Pac-Man must travel across his colorful cartoon world to return lost fairies to Fairyland. This isn't as leisurely as it sounds, as his rivals, Blinky, Pinky, Inky, Clyde and Sue are out to get him along the way.

Unlike the other run by the same author, this one avoids the level warp in order to play through all 32 stages as fast as possible.

CoolKirby uses a warp early on, then plays until Round 32, after which there's no new content. Playing through quickly and moving troublesome ghosts out of the way, he beats the game in a little over 20 minutes.

In this sequel to the first 3D Frogger game, Swampy the crocodile has had enough of Frogger hopping on him to cross water in previous Frogger games, so he decides to get revenge by kidnapping the baby frogs in Frogger's pond. Realizing the babies are missing, Frogger and his new partner Lily Frog set out on an adventure to rescue them.

CoolKirby uses his TAS powers to make Frogger and Lily hyperactive, so they rescue their babies at their fastest. If you're looking for crazy hopping action, look no further!

Anubis II (read: "Anubis, the Second") is a fast-paced platformer by Data Design Interactive, the creators of the infamous Ninjabread Man. The evil spirit Mumm'hotep has plunged Egypt into darkness, and Anubis II, the guardian of the tombs, sets out to stop him!

But it seems that this quest is much easier than it appears. After completely skipping going through the starting gate, Anubis decides to play a bunch of minigames. This somehow causes his quest to become completed. There was much rejoicing.

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.
