Adventure is a first-party game released in 1979 for the Atari 2600. The goal of the game is to find the enchanted chalice and return it to the gold castle while avoiding the three dragons guarding it. It was the first action-adventure game, and also the first game to have an inventory, a continue system, and a widely-known Easter egg.

The author, Alyosha, ignores the fearsome dragons and breezes through the maze, finishing the quest in a little over half a minute.

This run is 0.41 seconds faster than the predecessor movie by negative seven.

You're trapped! Your disabled nuclear submarine, resting perilously on an undersea ledge, has begun taking on water. With time running out for you and your crew – and with your onboard torpedoes shaken loose by an eerie current from deep under the sea floor – it's up to you alone whether you sink or swim!

The objective of Airlock is to retrieve the hatch keys and make your way to the next level before your compartment floods. But at the same time you must avoid the torpedoes that have been shaken loose and which, when they cross your path, rob you of precious time.

Alyosha improves the previous publication by 0.92 seconds, thanks to a newly discovered trick. Please read the author's comments for more details.

Barnstorming is an Atari 2600 video game designed by Steve Cartwright and published by Activision in 1982. The goal of the game is to fly through barns, while avoiding windmills and birds. There are four difficulties, going from 10 to 25 barns; this run uses the easiest one.

In this run, Alyosha gets the in-game time of 32.69, which is 6 in-game seconds faster than the previous run by StarvinStruthers, and it also beats the existing real-time record of 32.74. The movie time is longer though, due to different timing method.

Frogger is the classic 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.

In this run, the author plays through the first five levels of the game, after which there is no new content.

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


This obsoletes the previous run by 4.73 seconds.

The monkeys will try to stop her by throwing or dropping apples and knocking her off the platforms, but Mama can fight back. With her boxing gloves on, she can knock them out with a single punch!

Pitfall II: Lost Caverns is a platforming video game originally released for the Atari 2600 in 1984. The sequel to the popular Pitfall!, it opens up the world into a free-roaming adventure instead of progressing on a linear path. Among the other new features are swimming sections, save points, and catchy music.

Pitfall Harry's quest in this game is to find the Raj diamond, his niece Rhonda and his cowardly lion companion, Quickclaw.

Pitfall II: Lost Caverns is a platforming video game originally released for the Atari 2600 in 1984. The sequel to the popular Pitfall!, it opens up the world into a free-roaming adventure instead of progressing on a linear path.

This run is different from the any% TAS in that it does everything necessary to achieve the maximum score. This means avoiding falling down pits (which decreases your score by 100 each time) and following a much longer route in order to obtain all items.

Alyosha improves the previous run by 9.11 seconds, thanks to a new trick and better optimisation. Please read the author's comments for more details.

- Genre: Shooter
Wendy Witchcart is an old human witch who rides around in a specialized rail cart on an island that she claims as her own, and is the main villain who turns the islanders into crystals. Miles "Tails" Prower, better known as Sonic the Hedgehog's sidekick, is afraid of seeing a world filled with the witch's rails and decides to stop her on his own.

While Sonic collects rings to protect himself, Tails carries a special ring that he can throw like a boomerang or grab things with. Since collected crystals cost time on the score tally screen, the author simply ignores them all.

While this movie appears to be slower by 0.20 seconds than the previous publication, it is in fact faster by around a third of a second. This is because the site now assumes the proper framerate for Game Gear movies, while it assumed a flat 60 FPS back when the previous movie was published.

Set in a post-apocalyptic New York, Double Dragon is the story of Billy and Jimmy Lee, twin brothers trained in the fighting style of Sou-Setsu-Ken. Together, they manage a small martial arts training school, teaching their students in self-defense. One day, Billy's girlfriend, Marian, is kidnapped off the street by the "Black Warriors", a savage street gang led by a man named Willy. The Black Warriors demand the Lee brothers disclose their martial arts secrets in exchange for Marian's freedom. The Lee brothers set out on a rescue mission to crush the Black Warriors and save Marian.

Released on many systems, this game was so popular that they even released it for cellular phones and made a board game. Even a Hollywood movie has been made.

A rather simple, unique classic game.

The hero of this game is a spy/agent who raids buildings infested with men in black. He collects important documents from various apartments/closets (which, for the sake of simplicity, are colored indicatively), and then leaves by his car to the next raid.

After raiding the last building, he goes to raid the same buildings once again, ad infinitum.

Even a small game like this isn't free of bugs. The unsafe elevators of this game offer a few maneuvers that should not be attempted in real life.

Four levels were played.

G.I. Joe: The Atlantis Factor is an NES game released by Capcom USA around 1991. It is known to be a sequel to the original G.I. Joe NES game released a year before. Unlike the original game, this one allows you to take multiple routes to the end. Completing some stages will unlock other characters you can use to make the game easier. However, speedruns will just use the shortest route to the end and stick with the default character, General Hawk.

Alyosha improves the previous run by 25.08 seconds, thanks to overall better optimization and lag management.

This movie completes the 32 mountains of Ice Climber very fast. It catches the bird in every bonus stage, which almost doubles the movie length (partly due to longer bonus countdowns after the stages).

It's not a very exciting movie as a whole, but due to how hard the character is to control, the game is difficult to beat by normal playing. This movie by Alyosha improves the previous run by over a minute due to better optimization and more use of glitches that let a player pass through some unbroken ceilings.

At first glance, Mickey Mousecapade may seem like a simple game. However, it's actually fairly challenging. You guide Mickey and Minnie through five levels, presumably to save Alice from the Alice in Wonderland stories. (The plot doesn't get much explanation.)

Mission: Impossible is a game based on the 1988 TV series of the same name. Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to rescue Dr. O and Shannon from the grubby clutches of the Sinister Seven as quickly as possible. As you fight your way through each area, you must obtain information and vital ID cards. Your progress is blocked at every turn by acid flames, raw sewage, scorching steam, high voltage electricity and poison gas.

You can choose between three agents, Max, Grant and Nicholas, according to the situation at hand. Each is equipped with two types of weapons which can be interchanged according to the surroundings.

In the first published TAS of the game, Alyosha manipulates the RNG of several enemies and makes use of some glitches in order to reach a time of 24 minutes and 4.59 seconds.

Each level scrolls at an increasing speed until you reach the end, and you lose if a block reaches the line floating above the ship.

Quattro Adventure is a cart of 4 games released by Camerica in 1991. One of these 4 games is the platformer Super Robin Hood which is the subject of the current run. The game is unique in its use of hidden 'keys' that open various secret passages allowing the player access to faster routes. Combine this with a developer intended warp and major collision detection glitch and you get the current run of the game in under 5 minutes.

Super Turrican is an action platforming game whose distinctive feature is the morph ball mode (similar to Metroid) which lets you travel at high speed and through enemies.

While this run by Alyosha only seems to be 2.41 seconds faster than the previous publication, it actually is 1 minute and 34.09 seconds faster. This is because the previous publication was erroneously played on NTSC timing, despite the NES version only being released in Europe. This run plays on the correct PAL timing and, as a bonus, is also on the hardest difficulty.

Rocky is a video game adaptation of the famous Rocky movies, featuring familiar characters like the Soviet superboxer Ivan Drago.

In this run, Alyosha improves the predecessor movie by 2:17.89, due to skipping the training section completely, and also tighter optimization and better planning. Some of the improvement time was lost to the BIOS screen though.

- Uses warps
- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Action
- Genre: Platform
Out to Lunch is a little-known, very fast-paced platforming game where you play as a chef whose food has escaped and your goal is to recapture the food items from around the world. However, this is difficult due to strict time limits, a small amount of lives, and tough enemies that can either kill you or infect the food and turn it against you.

Thanks to much better optimization, Alyosha beats one of the oldest previously unobsoleted runs by over a minute.

The SNES port Prince of Persia 2 is generally regarded as a bad port of a very hard platforming puzzle game. The controls are clumsy, the puzzles are seemingly random, and the player dies very easily. The port also leaves out the last level. Fortunately there is a major bug in the game that allows large parts of it to be skipped.

This run follows the same general path as nitsuja's run, but saves time by fixing some mistakes and better enemy manipulation. Overall about 4 seconds are saved in gameplay, but the movie is still 12 seconds longer due to more accurate emulation.

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.
