Battletoads & Double Dragon: The Ultimate Team is an action packed beat 'em up crossover that features essentially the same physics as Battletoads. Together, these heroes must defeat the Shadow Boss, the Dark Queen, and an assortment of other baddies.

Unlike the run of the SNES version, the author, feos, uses both a Toad and a Dragon. In addition, he constantly exploits glitches removed in the SNES version. The result is roughly 18 minutes of ridiculous antics! For more information on the glitches used in this run, please see the author's notes.

Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers 2 is quite an improvement over the original Chip 'n Dale in terms of graphics and a whole lot of other things. Thankfully, the original game's solid controls haven't been changed. The plot of this game is that Fat Cat has stolen the Pharaoh's Urn and wants to use its power (for evil purposes, of course).

This run only uses Chip. It's an improvement of 1:19.53 over the previous "1 player" publication, through careful optimization, some new tricks and manipulating the bosses.

See this run replayed on an actual Famicom console.

For a 2-player run of the same game, see [1028] NES Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers 2 (USA) "2 players" by dragonxyk in 11:04.65.

The city of St. Canard is plagued by an unseen crime wave. The intelligence agency S.H.U.S.H. suspects that the shady organization F.O.W.L. and their valued operative Steelbeak are its causes. The caped superhero Darkwing has made quite some enemies in the criminal circles thanks to his past heroic deeds, and now the entire city has to pay for that. Naturally, the valiant duck is determined to travel through the dangerous streets of St. Canard, defeat his foes, and foil Steelbeak's plans.

Darkwing Duck is a side-scrolling platform game featuring the titular character from the Disney television series. The gameplay is similar to Duck Tales, also resembling Mega Man games in many ways. Darkwing's default weapon is a gas gun; special adapters that modify its functions can be collected during exploration. By using his cape, Darkwing is able to deflect some of the enemy projectiles. Weapons can be changed via a sub-screen.

For a "pacifist" type of completion, this run avoids killing enemies (they might also have dropped health refills, so health management is mandatory), and to offer maximum variety in addition to the any% version, doesn't use the subweapons (yet to save a single enemy's life, a single arrow is used). It offers some fresh action and manipulation on bosses, but can't be done entirely along with pacifist, so feos has to use a single arrow to save a single enemy's life.

James Bond Jr. is a 1991 video game developed by Eurocom. The world’s greatest scientists have mysteriously disappeared! Intelligence reports indicate that James Bond Junior's old enemy, SCUM Lord, has imprisoned them on his island fortress in the Caribbean. Without hesitation, Junior heads out on four dangerous missions to save the scientists and thwart SCUM Lord’s plans!

Here, our brave hero ignores normal elevators, uses all available items and manages their amounts very precisely, and generally abuses his lifebar.

We also have a run of the SNES version.


This movie features the new .FM3 format, intended to be watched in TASEditor, where detailed comments on the run are visible. You can play around with branches included in the movie as well. See the author's explanation on how to use this feature.

In Joust, players take control of a knight with a lance who rides their flying ostrich (or stork, for Player 2) to do battle against computer-controlled evil knights who ride atop vultures.

This game has 90 waves, and starts looping after wave 40 (in the NES version), so this run beats 44 waves. After the movie ends, one can see how wave 45 is beaten with no input and with massive amount of deaths (encodes don't have it).

The Earth is endangered by global pollution! Zen, the environmentalist ninja of ECO-POWER, must save the Earth from the big defiler, Lord Contaminous.

As one of the latest NES games from Konami, Zen featured graphics and music that pushed the limits of the 8-bit console.

This movie by feos improves the previous run by 11.28 seconds.
