- Genre: Action
Frogger is a port of Konami's classic arcade game, where you must lead five frogs in each level across a road and a river to the safety of their homes while avoiding hazards like cars and trucks, crocodiles, and a venomous snake.

The author, Quibus, races the frogs through the dangerous area and finishes the first five stages in just under three and a half minutes.

To see another port of the original arcade game beaten quickly, see the Atari 2600 version run. We also have a run of the sequel to the original game.

Galaga is the classic arcade shooter that takes place in space, and that's a sufficient enough description. There is also a movie of the Atari 7800 version.

Galaxian is an arcade space shooter game created by Namco in 1979. It was the first game to feature multi-colored animated sprites, a scrolling background, and graphics to represent the number of lives and the current round.

Quibus tears through the first stage of the MSX port of this classic game in a little over half a minute.

- Genre: Platform
In Hunchback, you take on the role of the eponymous bell-ringer, Quasimodo, in his quest to rescue the beautiful Esmeralda from the tower of the castle fortress. You must run and jump through a number of screens to reach the tower, avoiding spear-toting guards, ramparts and fiery chasms.


Being a run of a game on tape, the loading time is long (about 1 minute 10 seconds), complete with loud noises. You may want to skip it.

- Genre: Shooter
King & Balloon is an original shooter game by Namco that was created to run on Galaxian arcade machine hardware. The goal of the game is to use the orange cannon to blast away the descending balloons and prevent them from reaching and capturing the king.

Here, Quibus showcases precise blasting on the first two stages and a perfect score on the first bonus stage.

- Genre: Action
Scion was an arcade game that was ported to the MSX by Sony in 1985. It features gameplay unusual for a shooter. You don't even need to gun down the enemy ships. Instead, you stay on one screen that loops continuously until all ground targets have been destroyed. Three screens of that and it's on to the next stage.

However, since every stage is identical, Quibus just plays through stage 1 as fast as possible.

- Forgoes time-saving damage
- Genre: Fighting
Yie Ar Kung-Fu II: The Emperor Yie-Gah is the sequel to the famous Yie Ar Kung-Fu. Both games were developed by Konami for the MSX. While the first one was a fighting game, this one is a beat 'em up. You play as Lee Young, a martial arts master and the son of the first game's hero, who must take out self-proclaimed Emperor Yie-Gah and his gang and save China from their evil influence.

The author, Quibus, avoids unnecessary battles with gang members and beats down every boss to defeat Yie-Gah without taking a scratch.
