Everyone knows Freddy Krueger, who turns the peaceful dreams of people living on Elm Street into lethal nightmares. In this game, the teenager(s) must stay awake and combat Freddy's various forms while collecting his scattered bones so that they can be incinerated.

This movie is 1:05.98 faster than the previous version by Randil. This is accomplished by using 2 players, which allows for faster bone collection without losing time thanks to the excessive lag created by using 4 players (Displayed in the 4 Player run). For more details, please see the author's notes.

A Week of Garfield is a 1989 Famicom exclusive based on the comic strip character Garfield. In the game you play through levels which take place on each day of the week on your search to find Odie.

This game is surprisingly hard. Playing the game without dying (which results in a game over since you only have one life), let alone not losing any health, is extremely challenging. At times the screen is nearly filled with enemies and requires frame specific movement to avoid taking damage.

But don't worry, goofydylan8 manages to make this game look like a piece of cake and beat the console world record by 4 minutes.

Created by an Asian pirate developer, Koko Adventure was released in Korea in 1993. The game was planned to be released unlicensed in America as Buzz and Waldog, but was cancelled before it could hit store shelves.

The game's pirate origins are obviously visible - many of the graphics are ripped from popular games like Super Mario Bros. and Sonic the Hedgehog, and the sound effects are borrowed from Tiny Toon Adventures.

But don't worry, goofydylan8 speeds through the game so quickly you may be wondering if you're not watching one of those games instead.

This is the author's second submission of this game, and improves on the previous one by skipping intermission screens faster.

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 Dale. It's an improvement of 45.35 seconds over fiskerN's second submission and 3:09.08 over his first submission. See the author's notes for more details.

See here for the 2-player run in 11:04.65.

Double Dare is closely based on an old Nickelodeon children's game show. To win, each team must answer a few of the trivia questions before time runs out. If the team answering thinks the other team might not know the answer, they can "dare" the other team to answer the question for double the points. However, the other team has the option to "double dare" them right back for a chance to win quadruple the points. The winning team gets to race through the Double Dare obstacle course, which features obstacles like the 1-Ton Human Hamster Wheel and a tank of Nickelodeon's iconic green slime.

Thanks to tools and the low difficulty of the questions, the author, goofydylan8, doesn't have to dare the other team even once to win.

In Fisher-Price: Firehouse Rescue, the player controls a fireman driving a firetruck. Both the fireman and the firetruck bear the familiar style of the popular Fisher-Price toy line. The object of the game is to rescue pets from trees and people from houses in the immediate neighborhood. There are 2 parts to this task: the first part involves navigating the maze-like streets from an overhead perspective in order to find the troubled residence. Once the house is reached, the second part of the job is to maneuver the firetruck's ladder underneath the person or animal in need of rescue, from a side perspective, and letting them down to safety.

While the first level confines the entire neighborhood to a one-screen maze, later levels span multiple screens, thereby increasing the challenge. Further, later levels also add time limits and additional keys that the player must collect before attempting the rescue mission.

- Genre: Adventure
A long time ago, before human being appeared, there lived a monster named Firebrand. In this game, Firebrand (the red gargoyle) fights against the evil that has invaded his homeland. Along the way, he becomes more powerful and becomes able to fly longer, jump higher, and shoot more weapons.

goofydylan8 conquers this game in a little under 28 minutes with careful lag management, damage-boosting, and aggressive boss fights.

TASVideos also has movies of this game's prequel for the Game Boy and sequel for the Super NES.

In Kanshaku tamanage Kantarō no Tōkaidō Gojūsan-tsugi (かんしゃく玉投げカン太郎の東海道五十三次), you play a fireworks-maker traveling the Tōkaidō road. The game actually bears quite a resemblance to the actual geography of the Tōkaidō road; famous landmarks, rivers, and flora types are reproduced as well as they can be given the limitations of the Famicom.

The game is quite difficult -- the hero is slow moving and hard to control, and your only weapon is an endless supply of fireworks. The author's comments detail the methods used as well as explaining all of the various baddies encountered during this quest.

Low G Man is a futuristic action video game developed by KID for the Nintendo Entertainment System.

The game is really difficult to run: the controls are at times clunky, the screen refresh is frustrating and finally the last boss is an example of a difficulty spike as it suddenly becomes much harder than the rest of the game.

The author manages to complete the game in just 10 minutes, beating the real-time speedrun by about 2.5 minutes. Read the author's comments for more information.

- Unofficial game
- Genre: Platform
- Genre: Puzzle
Dizzy, the intelligent egg-like creature, is back in this second game of the famous series from the 1980s. He needs to gather items that he can trade for boat parts to escape from some islands. For the best ending, he also needs to find 30 coins, some of which are hidden.

This game has a reputation of high difficulty because of its physics and control scheme, but goofydylan8 makes it look like a relaxing platformer through masterful route planning and item management.

We also have a run of Dizzy the Adventurer.

Terminator 2: Judgment Day for the NES, released in 1991, is one of the better LJN games. In this game there are 4 platformer levels and one where Terminator rides a motorcycle. The game generally follows the plot of the movie, so for a more detailed synopsis go enjoy the film.

The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles is an action platformer named after the television show of the same name. In it, you will embark on an adventure across the globe showing the young life of the famous movie character. Along the way, you will fight some baddies and collect some treasure using motorcycles, aeroplanes, and of course, his iconic whip!

In this run, the author, goofydylan8, improves upon XTREMAL93's cancelled run by 34.88 seconds. This also improves XTREMAL93's improvement, which was worked on independently and submitted on the same day, by 15.68 seconds. See the author's notes for more details.

Wolverine is an action-platformer starring the hero of the same name from the X-Men. In it, Wolverine finds himself stranded on an island full of obstacles, enemies, and hamburger power-ups. He must navigate through it all with his iconic claws to defeat his evil adversaries Magneto and, finally, Sabretooth.

In this run, the author, goofydylan8, goes "berzerk" through the game using careful health management, movement, and attacking. Please see the author's notes for more details.

Please also check out the run for Spider-Man/X-Men: Arcade's Revenge, which is a SNES game, also made by LJN, where Wolverine's gameplay was ported to the applicable levels.

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.
