Mega Man X2 makes a particularly interesting run as there are many weapons that can be used to increase mobility. These include a grappling hook, a fast mid-air dash, and a weapon that can transform enemies into platforms.

This TAS obsoletes the "low%, best ending" as well as the "all upgrades" runs, since it collects all the parts of both X and Zero. It became possible to separate the "full completion" branch from the "any%" one after it was found to be faster to forgo acquiring the Shoryuken in the latter.

Sonic Advance was Sonic the Hedgehog's first appearance on a portable Nintendo console, and he brought all his friends with him.

This run proves that Knuckles the Echidna is up to the task of zipping through levels at warp speed and defeating Dr. Eggman yet again. Don't blink! In this movie, the author doesn't take advantage of the game-destroying spindash glitch featured in this run as Sonic.

While it may seem that it's only 0.73 seconds faster than the previous movie due to more accurate emulation, it is in fact faster by 33.13 seconds in in-game time. Please read the author's comments for more details.

Sonic Advance was Sonic the Hedgehog's second appearance on a Nintendo console (being beaten by Sonic Adventure 2: Battle on the GameCube by 10 days), and he brought all his friends with him. You can play as Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, or Amy on a mission to stop Dr. Eggman from taking over South Island.

This run improves the previous submission by 19.89 seconds, thanks to a new route in Angel Island 1 and general optimization.

There's also a run using Knuckles, Tails, and a couple Sonic runs.

Sonic Advance was Sonic the Hedgehog's first appearance on a portable Nintendo console, and he brought all his friends with him.

In this run, Tails shows what he's capable of and sets off to defeat Dr. Eggman once again. He aims to do so as fast as possible without using the game-destroying glitch featured in this run as Sonic.

If you want to see more Sonic Advance runs, check out the run as Knuckles, Amy and an alternate run as Sonic where the aforementioned glitch is not used.

Pokémon: Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald form the third generation of Pokémon, after Pokémon: Gold and Silver. Noticeable differences include the graphics and interface, Pokémon abilities, and running shoes that allow the player to move around much faster in the overworld before getting the bike.

In this movie, GoddessMaria applies her experience with TASing the game's alternate modes to a full run, finishing in under an hour and twenty minutes using lots of luck manipulation. At some point, her trainer gets fed up with all these slow battles, flies to the end, and storms the Elite Four throwing bad eggs at anyone who wants a fight.


Note: To play the vbm, you need to have Real Time Clock on and Flash 128k as the Save Type. Real Time Clock is for sync, while Flash 128k is to prevent the game from displaying a white screen.

Pokémon: Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald form the third generation of Pokémon, after Pokémon: Gold and Silver. Noticeable differences include the graphics and interface, Pokémon abilities, and running shoes that allow the player to move around much faster in the outside overworld before getting the bike.

FractalFusion and GoddessMaria complete the game in a mere 1:31:45, 3 minutes and 22 seconds faster than the previous Sapphire Version run. Instead of using Machop/Machoke, this run now uses Taillow/Swellow, which is obtained far earlier in the game, also has Guts as an ability, and has powerful moves early on and throughout. The movie also uses advanced methods of luck manipulation with the help of RNG analysis. For more details, see the submission text.

When the Earth is threatened, Zordon summons teenagers 'with attitude' to become the Power Rangers, defenders of all that is good.

In this game, the world is threatened by the forces of evil, which are attacking on multiple fronts, and led by Ivan Ooze. The Rangers have decided to split up and each tackle one of the main bad guys, fighting their way through the enemy hordes and finally returning Ooze to the sludge he belongs in.

The author, GoddessMaria, pairs each Ranger with his or her respective enemy boss and morphs into each Ranger as soon as possible in order to make the run more entertaining at the cost of speed.

This TAS completes the game without using any glitches. There is another TAS of this game which uses a notable glitch to skip through the second half of the game much faster.


Note: To play the bk2 file you need to have configure your timezone to GMT-5 (US Eastern Time).
