In this game, you get to play as Pinocchio, the carpenter Geppetto's living wooden puppet. Pinocchio goes through scenes from Disney's animated film, which itself was based on a children's novel.

This run does plenty of hopping around in order for Pinocchio to attempt to save his father in a brisk 10 minutes.

James Bond 007: The Duel is a sidescrolling platformer featuring a storyline that is not based on a James Bond film. A mad professor has commandeered a Caribbean satellite launch center and is planning to use its technology to take over the world, and only 007 can stop him!

The game requires precision in jumping, as Bond will easily die if he falls from high places. Bond's gun also needs to be reloaded on occasion and ammo needs to be conserved. Besides shooting the bad guys in his way, Bond has to find all of the female hostages and set bombs in each base in order to proceed.

Archanfel improves the previous run by 2 minutes and 21.13 seconds thanks to better optimization and new tricks like dying to save time and using minor bullet damage to avoid lethal falling damage from great heights.

In his second adventure, James Pond must retrieve the toys Dr. Maybe has stolen. Pond has been armed with an Inspector Gadget-style stretch device, which he can use to view higher areas or claw onto ceilings so as to slide across them.

If you noticed the pun in the title, it may not come as a surprise that the game's title screen music is an upbeat rendition of the RoboCop title theme.

Archanfel defeats the nefarious Dr. Maybe and retrieves Santa's presents in 24 minutes and 20.46 seconds.

We also have a run of James Pond 3: Operation Starfish.

Award - Sega TAS of 2015
In this action/puzzle game, you control three Vikings lost in time and space, each with their own special abilities needed to solve the levels.

This movie controls three characters simultaneously. Archanfel manages to improve the previous TAS by 8 minutes and 17 seconds through much better optimization. See the author's comments for what was improved.

Keep in mind that only Vikings that are onscreen can be controlled.

The Pirates of Dark Water is remarkable for its eccentric setting, utilizing the source material's melding of swashbuckling adventures, sword-and-sorcery fantasy, and Road Warrior-inspired fashion aesthetics. Drawing from the cartoon's backstory, players fight rival pirates as well as fantastic creatures sent to hinder the heroes from finding the Treasure of Rule by the evil pirate-lord Bloth.

The game features the main crew of the 1990s TV show - Ren, Ioz, and Tula - searching for the Treasures of Rule in order to rid the world of Mer of the Dark Water and return Mer and Ren's homeland, Octopon, to its former glory.

Judge Dredd is a platform action game based on the British comic book character of the same name and the 1995 movie that tarnished that name. The game was a multi system release so it fits the standard console jump/shoot/duck formula although it does add some unique twists such as wounding enemies so that they surrender and can be arrested.

The initial levels follow the plot of the movie with futuristic lawman Judge Dredd framed and sent to the Aspen penal colony from which he must escape and prove his innocence. Following the fight at the top of the Statue of Liberty that ended the film, the game continues on with levels and characters inspired by the comic book culminating with a battle against the Dark Judges on Deadworld.

In this run, Archanfel improves upon the previous publication by 3:36.60 minutes thanks to some new glitches and changes to the route.

Out of This World is a strange and difficult game. It was one of only a few SNES games to use loading screens.

This run obsoletes the previous movie by 1585 frames.

Quoting bobucles's analysis of the game:
Oh, this game is great. I remember that at the beginning, the gun has exactly enough shots to make it past that first door. Shield, big blast, and kill the guards, then the gun runs out. Waste any, and you die. Classic.
