- Genre: Platform
- Genre: Puzzle
Solomon’s Key is a puzzle platform game with an old clumsy magician who has the power of creating and destroying platforms. And through that power, he saves the world.

This movie plays all the rooms of the game, including the hidden rooms with Page of Time, Page of Space, and even a princess of some kind. (Fairy collection rooms were not included.) No warps were used. Due to those secrets, it accomplishes the best ending of the game.

This movie is almost a minute and a half faster than the predecessor movie. In addition, it marks the obsoletion of the last Famtasia movie.

While decidedly not the same game, the Super Mario Bros. games on the NES are similar enough in game mechanics and controls that all four of them can be played at once with the same input.

This second version of the quad-run utilizes the credits glitch found in the newest Super Mario Bros. 3 run. As such, the focus is now on finishing Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels as fast as possible, allowing Super Mario Bros. 3 to entertain while waiting for the other three games to progress. The run also features an ending that may surprise you.

If you like this movie, you may want to check out some other movies in which multiple games are played simultaneously with one controller.

This movie has been played back and verified on console during SGDQ 2016.

While decidedly not the same game, the Super Mario Bros. games on the NES are similar enough in game mechanics and controls that all four of them can be played at once with the same input.

While the main focus is on completing Super Mario Bros. 3 as fast as possible, Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels and Super Mario Bros. 2 are completed around the same time as their successor. However, the original Super Mario Bros. finishes quite a bit earlier, allowing Mario to stop and catch his breath as he waits patiently for his counterparts to finish.

In the latest in silly ideas turned into inspirations for our ever-dedicated TASers, this movie takes one controller and wires it into three SNES emulators at once; the same input is used to play 3 games simultaneously with one controller. There are also animations constructed with spare controllers during this movie.

This movie beats the first three Mega Man X games with 100% completion each (an improvement on its predecessor, which beat only the first two games and without 100% completion).

If you like this movie, there are other movies that beat four games with one controller!

Note: There might be a visual anomaly during the battle with Serges in X 2. This is an emulator bug relating to the Cx4 chip used in the Mega Man X 2 cartridge.

Encoder's Note: There are multiple audio tracks included with the encode. Track 1 is the combined audio of all 3 games panned so that the left side is MMX1, center is MMX2, and right is MMX3. Track 2 contains MMX1's audio, track 3 contains MMX2's audio, and track 4 contains MMX3's audio.

In Mega Man X3, you will find yourself finally using Zero's coveted sword. The author speeds through the game very rapidly, and uses the sword to beat the 8 bosses very quickly the second time around.

This run is 7 seconds faster than the predecessor movie, both by using some new tricks and playing with more precision.

The page Mega Man X Tricks explains some of the tricks that can be used in the X series games.

Mega Man X3 is the third game in the Mega Man X series, and the last one to be released on the SNES.

This is the second "100%" run of this game. agwawaf speeds through the game very rapidly, collecting all heart tanks, subtanks, Ride Armor modules, upgrades and finally the Golden Armor. However, Zero is kept alive and his Z-Saber is not obtained, so the author could get the best ending.

The page Mega Man X Tricks explains some of the tricks that are used in this tool-assisted speedrun.

See also the any% run of this game by the same author, which doesn't collect the upgrades but does collect the Z-Saber.
