Award - Computer TAS of 2015
Metal Gear!? It can't be!

This is the original MSX version of the first entry of the ever-popular Metal Gear series of stealth video games created by Hideo Kojima and developed and published by Konami. In this game, Snake infiltrates Outer Heaven, a fortified state founded by a "legendary mercenary" 200 km north of Galzburg, South Africa, in an operation codenamed Intrude N313. He must find out what happened to Gray Fox, after losing contact with FOXHOUND.

In this movie, however, dunnius isn't very stealthy at all; he goes through numerous alerts in order to reach a time of 26 minutes and 28.05 seconds.

- Genre: RPG
Hydlide is an old and somewhat notorious game, mostly because it has very strange gameplay mechanics. For the first part of the game, walking consumes health, and the character must stop every now and then to regain it.

This is one of the few games (the only one?) where the level grinding sequences are actually entertaining, while the boss fights aren't. Hitting a boss decreases your own health as well as the boss's, after which there is much waiting for more health until you can hit him again.

This is an improvement of 3:54.79 over the previous TAS, due to overall better levelling strategy and route planning.

There is also a submitted TAS that uses codes and removes the need to level grind or wait for health.

Metal Gear!? It can't be!

This is the NES port of the first entry in the ever-popular Metal Gear series of stealth video games created by Hideo Kojima and developed and published by Konami; there are significant differences between it and the original MSX version. It is infamous for its engrish, containing such ever-popular phrases as "I FEEL ASLEEP!" and "UH - OH! THE TRUCK HAVE STARTED TO MOVE!".

This movie utilizes quite a wide variety of game glitches and collects the minimal set of items needed to complete the game.

This movie is a 1.31 second improvement, resulting from changing the damage boosts, better lag management and RNG management, fixing an oversight of 16 frames that all previous TASes had, and a new route that rescues the building 1 rooftop prisoner instead of the one in floor 1 of building 2.
