Choplifter is a game developed by Dan Gorlin and was released by Brøderbund in 1982 for multiple systems. It has the distinction of being one of only a few games originally made for home computers before being ported to an arcade machine.

In this game, you are an ace helicopter pilot tasked with rescuing prisoners of war from enemy camps and returning them to the home base. There are a total of 64 POWs that need saving, but you can only carry 16 at a time.

In this run, DrD2k9 rescues all POWs in record time.

We also have a movie of the Atari 7800 version.

Your task in Frogger is to guide a frog across a treacherous road and river, and to safety at the top of the screen. Both these sections are fraught with a variety of hazards, each of which will kill the frog and cost you a life if contact is made.

There are two ports of this game on the Commodore 64: the Parker Brothers port and the Sierra port. DrD2k9 plays through the former in record time.

Jungle Hunt is a right-to-left side-scrolling arcade game produced and released by Taito in 1982. Jungle Hunt is one of the first video games to use parallax scrolling. The player controls an unnamed explorer, sporting a pith helmet and safari suit, attempting to rescue his girl from a tribe of cannibals by swinging from vine to vine, swimming a crocodile-infested river, and avoiding rolling rocks.

DrD2k9 swings, swims, jumps, and ducks his way through the jungle to rescue his girl in record time.

Unlike the predecessor movie, this run is made using the NTSC settings. The resulting time is shorter due to faster gameplay speed, even though this run is 14 frames longer, because of the RNG difference.

- Contains speed/entertainment tradeoffs
- Genre: Adventure
Vohaul's Revenge is the sequel to The Sarien Encounter, and the second game in Sierra's humorous Space Quest series of adventure games. The player navigates Roger Wilco around with the arrow keys and interacts with the world by typing commands. Like in the previous game, there are many ways for the player character to die. Much of the gameplay is dedicated to avoiding the many traps and hazards Roger will meet on his way. Some actions must be performed quickly in order to prevent Roger from getting killed.

DrD2k9 completes the game in record time, thanks to setting the speed to the fastest setting.


The second YouTube stream plays back the movie at 1/5th of the regular speed.

10-Yard Fight (10ヤードファイト) is a 1983 American football arcade game that was developed and published in Japan by Irem and published in the United States by Taito and in Europe by Electrocoin.

While the USA release plays just like real American football, the Japanese version, used in this run, has a completely different goal. This version is high score based; more like the arcade release. Score increases with progress down the field, touchdowns, kicked PATs, and remaining time on the clock when the touchdown is scored. Another major difference is no option to select difficulty at the beginning: the game moves through the 4 difficulties as its normal progression to the hardest level (Super Bowl).

Based on the 1988 Michael Keaton movie, Beetlejuice follows the rough storyline of the movie. A ghoul named Beetlejuice is hired by a recently deceased couple to scare away the new occupants of their old home. The game is a side scrolling action game where the lead character can run, jump, and stomp his way through the house while collecting "scare points" to help in his ultimate goal. The house is equipped with all manner of traps including incinerating lasers, and even the torches hurt.

In this run, DrD2k9 spooks his way through the game as fast as possible, with the use of a warp glitch to shift Beetlejuice into places not normally accessible.

Bible Adventures is a collection of three platformer games in one. Each game is (very loosely) based on a story from the Bible. Gameplay itself has very little biblical connection.
  • Noah's Ark - Noah collects animals and food in preparation for the flood.
  • Baby Moses - Moses' mother must carry baby Moses past Egyptian guards, spiders, and birds to reach a safe place to put him in the Nile.
  • David & Goliath - David must first gather sheep that have wandered off, then he can go to battle against Goliath.

Castelian is a puzzle platformer in which the basic goal is to ascend towers from the base to the apex. Your frog-like character is tasked with demolishing these towers by planting a bomb at each tower's top (wouldn't bombs around the bottom be easier?) after finding the right route up the tower.

The game was also released on other systems as Nebulus, Kyorochan Land, Subline, and Tower Toppler.

Powerhouse NES runner DrD2k9 runs, jumps, and shoots his way up all the towers in under 15 minutes.

A boy named Tim and his little sister Judy go to a circus. They want to buy tickets to enter the circus, but they only have money for one ticket, so only Judy goes in. After the show, the boy is at the exit to meet Judy when she comes out, but when she doesn’t the boy sneaks into the circus to rescue his sister from the ringmaster Mr. Magic who has taken her hostage.

The game is a platformer, you must get past many clowns, tightrope artists, and pools of water filled with alligators. You can also go into small tents to play mini-games.

This run by DrD2k9 finishes the game in just over 7 minutes.

U.S. Championship V'Ball, renamed Super Spike V'Ball for its NES conversion, is a lesser-known coin-op. It challenges players to bump, set, and spike their way to a beach volleyball championship. Teams of two travel the USA and the world, visiting venues like Chicago, Los Angeles, Hawaii, and Australia. This game can be played by 1-4 players simultaneously, although on the NES a Satellite or Four Score device (and extra controllers) are required for three or four players.

In this run, DrD2k9 beats the hardest game mode, The World Cup Tournament, using 2 players at the same time.
