This is a hack of Super Mario Bros, called Air. The homepage of the hack is: http://nightbug.net/mario/air/airmenu.html (Japanese).

Defining aspects of this game:

  • Very unforgiving. Intuition will not work. Mistakes are not allowed. Most paths are one-way.
  • In order to complete the game, the player is required to collect some mushrooms, only to lose them soon thereafter.
  • In order to complete the game, the player is required to abuse many of the glitches of the game (such as passing through walls in a multitude of different ways).
  • Savestates are practically required for completing the game.
  • You can jump any time you wish, even if you are in air. Genisto however avoids using this feature except when necessary.
  • This movie involves a death. As the game starts with 0 extra lifes, the player must gain one 1UP to afford that death.
  • In stage 3-2, Mario just sleepwalks through the stage. The player has no control there.

If you want to complete this game yourself, do not watch this movie! This movie spoils some solutions.

Anyone can make as psychedelic looking hack as this one is, but it is not as mindless as it first seems. It has been designed by someone who has firm knowledge of the game's quirks, and you need to have the same level of knowledge in order to complete the game.

Gaining the 1UP is accomplished by collecting 100 coins. However, most of the coins are either hidden, or trapped so that they must be collected in a certain order. Some coins are traps in themselves, and must not be collected, because doing so the player would not be able to return to the right path.

The death, however, is not mandatory. As Bisqwit demonstrates, the game is also completable without death (and thus, without collecting those coins). (Note: The shooting at Koopa in the demonstration has nothing to do with this point. It only shows that the hit counter overflowed.) Bisqwit is unsure whether this manner of completion is what the creator of the hack had in mind. Considering that dying leads to the lowerside tunnel, it is possible that the death was intended to be mandatory.

Genisto has explained some aspects of this game, and of the movie, in his submission comments.

The following attributes apply to this movie:

  • Abuses programming errors. There is no other choice.
  • Uses warps. There is no other choice.
  • Does not play as fast as possible. Rather, Genisto introduces this hack in a good way.

Arkanoid (1987) strongly resembles the arcade game Breakout (1976). In Arkanoid, the paddle is actually a spaceship, and the bricks are space walls. The goal of the game is to break through the space walls and defeat the villainous Doh in order to escape from the space labyrinth.

This incredible TAS of Arkanoid, made by Genisto, inspires awe in a manner comparable to adelikat's Gradius movie. No ball is ever lost, even though three balls are juggled in almost every level.

This is a timeattack at ヒットラーの復活, which is the original (Japanese) version of Bionic Commando.

This is a platform game with a hero that can't jump.
This movie is 3 minutes and 6 seconds faster than the movie of the previous author, Feitclub. It looks really great.

Note: Hitler no Fukkatsu and Bionic Commando are not the same game.
Selected quotes from Feitclub:
"Major differences include:
-"HnF" has more enemies in every stage, and more obstacles along the way. For example, there are land mines in Area 7 and giant spiders in some neutral areas. Also, I believe the patterns of the enemy attack trucks are different, because I seemed to encounter them more often in this game despite using the same route as "BC."
-All references to Nazis and all swastikas were removed from "BC." The evil leader of "the Badds" was re-named "Master-D." Graphically, however, he is undeniably Adolf Hitler in both versions. This resulted in quite a shock to me as a child!"

Resurrection of Hitler: Top Secret (ヒットラーの復活) is the original (Japanese) version of Bionic Commando. It is a platform game with a hero who can't jump but can quickly latch onto objects with his bionic arm. One can guess from the game's title that the hero's objective is to end the Nazi's efforts to resurrect Adolf Hitler.

This TAS is about 0.5 seconds faster than the previous version; it merely changes some very minor parts.

Note: Hitler no Fukkatsu and Bionic Commando are not the same game. According to Feitclub, major differences include:

  • "HnF" has more enemies in every stage, and more obstacles along the way. For example, there are land mines in Area 7 and giant spiders in some neutral areas. Also, I believe the patterns of the enemy attack trucks are different, because I seemed to encounter them more often in this game despite using the same route as "BC."

A little-known game based on an old cartoon, in Bucky O'Hare you soon have access to 5 unique characters, each of which has a special ability ranging from flight to a powerful gunshot. What's more, it is not necessary to access a menu in order to switch from character to character, allowing the player to use whomever they'd like without sacrificing any time. A wide variation in levels is also seen, ranging from outerspace self-scrolling levels, to fast paced platform-based levels inside a large spaceship.

Genisto's movie is an improvement of over 4 and a half minutes over the previous movie. Most of the improvements are due to better accuracy and some tactical changes.

This is the story of Dracula's curse from the times before the first Castlevania game.
The original name of the game is 悪魔城伝説 (Akumajou Densetsu, meaning "Legend of the Demon Castle").

Technically, this game has a really high quality soundtrack - mostly because it uses a VRC6 chip that the Nintendo of America considered too expensive to include in the game cart.
That's why the movie was made for the Japanese version instead of the USA version.
(No, it still isn't SNES quality yet - don't be disappointed.)

This movie is interesting, because the game is complex and difficult and the soundtrack is good.

Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers is based on the animated TV series. In this ridiculously easy and straightforward game, the Rangers look for their neighbor's kitty and end up fighting against their old nemesis, Fat Cat.

Genisto shaves another 4 seconds off of this single-player movie by using some new techniques that involve zipping through certain objects.

Trivia: This game was released as Probotector in Europe with slightly modified graphics. It is also known as GryZor on some other systems.

It's the guy who has infinite supply of ammo and who destroys worlds bare-chested.

Here we have Genisto again doing what nobody could have seen coming.
This updated movie demonstrates very well how important accuracy can be (by being half a minute faster than the previous version).

This is a historic movie, submitted and obsoleted before the creation of the database-based (and wiki-based) site engine, before July 2004.

It was inserted to the database in a history revival project by Bisqwit in autumn 2006.

This movie is 1:23.1 faster than the previous movie by Provonost. This movie takes better care in optimization but fires many stray shots. Unlike the previous movie, this one uses the autofire key. In fact it leaves it on for extended perios often, even when there is nothing to shoot at.

This movie takes advantage of the single stream technique, but not until halfway through stage 2.

This is Genisto's TAS movie of Duck Tales 2, 41 seconds faster than the previous version by Exim.

Quote from Exim (for his movie, but applies to this one as well):
This one has the "bad" end. (not the worst)
There are 3 endings: no money earned; earned some money and found all 7 map pieces. I'm thinking about doing the best end but I don't know if this would be interesting because I'd have to visit some places twice and it would be a lot longer.

Selected notes from the author:
" Beat the game at Level 9.
Leveling up doesn't take so long... less than 3 minutes.
Avoid all the enemies that aren't useful to kill.
The final boss (Dragonlord) may be a little long to beat, but it's the fastest way to get through the quest.
It appears to be a David Vs Goliath fight.

This is another one of the "umpteenth version" movies.

Cheez and WalkerBoh had a long competition at this game, but then Genisto came and beat them both by improving Walker's previous attempt by 1:54.

Once again, Genisto manages to perform a complete jaw-dropper.

Most of us knew that Genisto has been working on an improved SMB2 movie, but I don't think anyone could have expected the improvement to be seventeen seconds!

This is definitely a must-watch.

If you are wondering how some of the tricks in this video works, go to the Super Mario Bros. Tricks 2 (you won't find it at the How Stuff Works site!).

This game is actually Super Mario USA, the game which was crafted from the Japanese game "Doki Doki Panic".

This is the fastest seen Super Mario Bros 2 timeattack so far. It has been a long road from Bisqwit's first Luigi-only done-fast movie (11:36) to this Genisto's Mario+Luigi+Toad timeattack (12 seconds faster than the previous version by Sleepz), and the result is totally incredible. Have we reached the perfection yet?

This movie also demonstrates many funny glitches in the game - some of which may be documented at the Super Mario Bros. Tricks 2 page.

Once again, Genisto has surpassed the presumed limit of tool-assisted SMB3 speedrunning.

The differences between the Japanese and USA versions of SMB3 entail a few seconds of change, but most of this 19-second improvement's enhancement is because of Mario's passing through walls in the final fortress ― a trick that was discovered by Bisqwit.

There are also some other new strategies that Genisto uses in this movie. Once again, of course, Genisto has acquired 99+ extra lives magnificently.

Looking for the famous Super Mario Bros 3 timeattack by もりもと (Morimoto)?
This isn't it.
This is Genisto's version, which beats Morimoto's version in the following aspects:
- is 10 seconds faster!
- has better high score!
and also, when compared to Michael Fried's run:
- collects 5 coins more!
It's sort of an improved hybrid of those two movies.

Not only is it amazingly fast, it also manages to get 99 extra lives while waiting.

- Major skip glitch
- Final boss skip glitch
- Heavy glitch abuse
- Corrupts memory
- Genre: RPG
Lufia 2 is an adventure RPG prequel to Lufia 1. In this installment, Maxim and his cohorts set out to take down the evil Sinistrals.

Normally, the game sports a large amount of puzzles, yet a shockingly low amount of battles. In this movie, however, Genisto uses 2 newly found glitches, explained in the submission text, which let anyone finish the game without even leaving the first room, improving the previous movie by almost 2 minutes.

- Playaround
- Heavy glitch abuse
- Genre: Platform
Taking a break from the usual goal of pure speed, Genisto instead decides to break Super Mario Bros 3 from the Super Mario All-Stars pack. This run demonstrates programming errors, abuse of the game engine and commits suicide in ways most people have never even considered.

Mario plays through all 8 worlds in a fashion similar to a warpless run.
