Like its predecessor, Phantasy Star II is a party-based Japanese RPG with randomly appearing enemies and turn-based combat. Eight characters can join the quest and can be swapped in and out at will to participate in a combat party of four. Characters can dual-wield and equip a wide variety of weapons, including firearms. Various techniques which require "TP" (technique points, equivalent to magic points in comparable games) are learned by different characters at specific levels. Unlike the first game, Phantasy Star II utilizes the same top-down view for both navigation and dungeon exploration; the now-2D dungeons are notable for their complexity.

This run by AmaizumiUni ignores the vast majority of the game by using a glitch that allows a party member's experience points to be used as plot items.

In Cosmo Police: Galivan, the player takes the role of the last remaining member of the Cosmo Police. His comrades died while trying to free the planet Cynep from the evil roaming on it. Now the player is the last hope.

This game is a mix between a shooter and a platformer: the player walks through the caves, jumps over obstacles and shoots everything in sight. Well, at least if he has a weapon: at the beginning he is unarmed and can only kick or punch. He has to find pyramids which were dropped by his dead colleagues (also sometimes from killed aliens), which grant an armor piece, more life energy and a weapon. When the player finds a pyramid, the weapon gets upgraded for a limited amount of time.

However, AmaizumiUni exploits a glitch performed in the "alien world" portion of the first stage, during the transition of the first elevator (read the submission comments as well as this post for more details). Therefore, he reaches a time of just 3 minutes and 20.1 seconds.

Final Fantasy III was the second of two Final Fantasy NES games to be released only in Japan, leading to the fourth game in the series being released to the rest of the world as Final Fantasy II. The game brings back the experience point system from the first game while changing up the character jobs formula by allowing the player to change a character's class mid-game as well as acquire new and advanced classes.

In this movie, the author, AmaizumiUni, abuses a bug that causes character inventory to overflow, corrupting the game's memory and triggering the credits early.
