Knuckles' Chaotix is a Sonic game that doesn't feature Sonic. The story follows Knuckles the Echidna as he tries to save his friends from Dr. Robotnik, one at a time, by tying an elastic band of "ring energy" between himself and each of them.

The gameplay is similar to that of earlier Sonic games, and after each stage, the next level is selected via roulette. These roulettes and the game's cutscenes comprise about 66% of the total movie length, so we recommend skipping through them.

In the site's first 32X publication, Upthorn uses a number of glitches (of which the most prominent is zipping through walls) to complete most of the levels tens of seconds faster than intended.

Spider-Man: Web of Fire, one of the last games to be released on the ill-fated 32X, follows our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man's battle with the evil forces of the neo-Nazi organization H.Y.D.R.A.

This is an improvement of 24.58 seconds over the previous run due primarily to a new glitch allowing Spidey to pass through walls.

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.

MrWint improves the previous TAS by 17.97 seconds (17.47 seconds in-game, reaching a time of 15.22 seconds in-game), thanks to abusing a glitch where hitting the top part of the barn just as one enters the barn gets counted. Please read the author's comments for more details.

Bobby is Going Home is a simple platform game developed by Bit Corporation and released in 1983. The goal of the game is to guide a boy named Bobby through diving hawks, dashing chickens, tricky pits, thorny rosebushes, and deadly sinkholes to the safety of his home.

Lobsterzelda improved the previous run via better character movement. However, this run is longer because it completes two loops of the game in order to show all of its unique content.

In Dodge 'Em (1980), you control a race car on a four lane track, and your goal is to collect all of the dots in order to earn points and advance to the next level. The race track is divided into four quadrants with a break in the lanes between them, and you can change lanes only within these breaks. A second car will travel in the opposite direction and try to get into your lane and crash you, so you need to make sure you switch to any lane it isn't in! You can travel at two different speeds (fast and slow) and even have a second player control the enemy car.

In this mesmerizing movie, yep2yel and morningpee speed around the track and beat the first round of the game in under 55 seconds. In doing so, they improve the previous movie by 11.28 seconds thanks to new routes and speed tricks.

- Contains speed/entertainment tradeoffs

- Genre: Racing
Dragster, released in 1980 for the Atari 2600, is the first video game developed by Activision. It was programmed by David Crane, who later wrote Pitfall! The object of the game is to either beat the player's opponent across the screen, or to race against the clock for best time, depending on the settings used.

The game is well known as having the first console speedrun with the world record of 5.51 by Todd Rogers in 1982 according to Twin Galaxies. This record is known as the oldest, unbeaten world record in all of speedrunning.

MrWint & Omnigamer decided to try and match the elusive 5.51, and disassembled the entire game looking for how the 5.51 was achieved. After conducting their research, they found that the long sought 5.51 was outright impossible to achieve within the internal conditions of the game. After lots of flamewars, the now infamous Todd Rogers's record has been taken down, leading to his ban from Twin Galaxies.

This run achieves the fastest possible time of 5.57 on player two while also maximizing the distance, with player one completing the track in the lowest amount of input frames. It also improves the predecessor movie by 0.10 seconds, which translates to 0.01 seconds if you discard emulation differences. The improvement comes from the fact that the game processes the second player first, so he's the one taking the lead this time.

This run has been console verified by dwangoAC using true's Multireplay device (latch per vsync using extraction board).

E.T. The Extraterrestial, based on the film of the same name, is one of the worst video games ever released. It contributed to Atari's massive financial losses during 1983 and 1984. As a result of overproduction and returns, millions of unsold cartridges were buried in an Alamogordo, New Mexico landfill.

The game was developed in five weeks and Atari decided to skip audience testing for the product due to time limitations.

CoolKirby and Alyosha shave off 0.03 seconds (2 frames) by turning around at the third phone part.

I Want My Mommy is a video game for the Atari 2600, released exclusively to North America. It is a platform game (then called "climbing games" by the US press). The game was given the KidStuff panel on the cover art; meaning it was aimed at gamers under the age of nine. Bootleg versions of the game were sold around the world as Open Sesame, Apples and Dolls, Teddy Apple, and Ursinho Esperto.

The player controls Teddy, and must guide him up a six story structure to the goal at the top. The goal of the first stage is to collect the Apple at the top, and the goal of the second is to get to the mommy at the top.

- Uses death to save time
- Genre: Platform
You play as a treasure hunter named Panama Joe, whose goal is to find an ancient treasure hidden by Aztec warrior deep inside catacombs. But beware, the catacombs are a large maze inhabited by monsters. Bouncing and rolling skulls, dancing spiders, disappearing and re-appearing chains and tons of fire await you. You'll have to find many keys and unlock doors in order to reach your goal. Panama Joe can jump and climb ladders, but doesn't have much to offer in terms of combat. That's why the monsters in the game should be avoided: a collision with an enemy leads to a premature death. He will also find amulets which make him invulnerable for a short time. Except for the Master System version, they are activated directly when picked up.

Spikestuff goes through this port's three levels in record time.

Pitfall! was a game released for the Atari 2600. In it, you play as an explorer named Pitfall Harry. As you travel through the jungle, your goal is to collect all 32 treasures hidden throughout the world within the time limit the game gives you (which is 20 minutes). You also have only 3 lives while exploring the game, and touching an enemy or falling into a tarpit or water will cost you a life. If you die three times, it's game over for Pitfall Harry, and the game offers no continues.

Lobsterzelda collects all 32 treasures in record time.

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.

River Raid is an early vertical shooter where you fly a plane down a river and fire missiles to blow up helicopters, jets, ships and bridges.

As you can imagine, a tool-assisted speedrun turns this regular raid into an unstoppable barrage of destruction.

This movie obsoletes the previous one due to Lord Tom getting 1 million points instead of 100,000, thus reaching the true end of the game.

This run was performed by a bot coded by the author, based on a Java port of the game he wrote himself. For more on the extensive work put into this TAS, see the author's comments.

You play as the Road Runner, and you spend each level running to the left trying to dodge obstacles and avoid Wile E. Coyote. The road is littered with landmines and speeding trucks, which will kill the road runner on contact. They can also kill Wile E., but he respawns again after a few seconds. Wile. E. also has guns set up at certain portions of the road, roller skates, and a rocket ship which he can use to try to grab the road runner.

- Heavy luck manipulation
- Genre: Action
Entirely unrelated to the TV series seaQuest DSV, Seaquest is a submarine combat game in which you control a water vessel and must pick up divers at different levels of depth while avoiding fish and enemy subs. While most of the game takes place underwater, you also must resurface for air from time to time so your air meter doesn't run out.

Like Tetris, the game ends when the score reaches the maximum 999999. This run by morningpee aims to reach this score as fast as possible.

morningpee accomplishes this through manipulating diver and enemy spawn points and using a glitch to freeze an enemy sub, allowing him to collide with it until the maximum score is reached. A lot of effort was put into figuring out the game's RNG and the optimal point to use the No-Despawn glitch; for more information, see the author's comments.

- Genre: Racing
In Skiing, your goal is to ski to the bottom of the mountain in the shortest time possible. The mountain is treacherous with plenty of trees and moguls in the way! There are two different modes of gameplay. In slalom mode, there are a series of gates you need to ski through; missing any will result in a penalty to your time. In downhill mode you just need to ski to the bottom as fast as possible. Each mode includes five different skill levels which affect the length of the course (and the number of gates in slalom mode.)

ViGadeomes completes the slalom mode on the most difficult setting, with an in-game time of 28.21 seconds.

Death Star Battle is loosely based on the events of the film Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. Your task is to destroy the Death Star before its construction is finished. You start the task outside the shield perimeter of the Death Star, where you have to combat different imperial vessels and avoid the death ray while waiting for an opportunity to slip through one of the random openings in the energy shield. After reaching the Death Star, you must reduce its structure up to the point where you can hit the core. In the following destruction of the station, you must avoid collision with the Death Star's debris.

It was decided that only the first round of the game contains meaningful content, so in this TAS, jlun2 uses luck manipulation and a precise shooting angle to finish it in less than 9 seconds. It is only the fifth shortest movie on this site, with Super 3D Portals 6 beating it by around 6.5 seconds.

The player(s) takes control of the DC Comics character Superman, who must repair the bridge destroyed by Lex Luthor, capture Luthor and his criminal underlings, enter a phonebooth to turn back into Clark Kent, then return to the Daily Planet in the shortest amount of time. To slow Superman's progress, Kryptonite has been released by Luthor. If hit by Kryptonite, Superman loses his abilities to capture criminals and fly. To regain them, he must find and kiss Lois Lane.

However, jlun2 uses a pause demo glitch to warp to the end. That is all.

Choplifter is one of the few games that got ported from home systems to the arcade instead of the other way around. The goal of the game is to pilot an attack chopper to rescue 64 hostages from the clutches of the evil Bungeling Empire.

Besides being fun to play in real-time, it's also well-suited for TASing. It has fast-paced and lag-free gameplay, nice graphics, and simple mechanics. Both moving up and down and rotating the helicopter don't decrease your horizontal speed, which is great for both optimization and entertainment.

In this run, CoolKirby uses tool-assisted precision and tricks like blasting open enemy camps as soon as possible to beat the game in under three minutes.

We also have a movie of the Commodore 64 version.

Ninja Golf is an Atari 7800 video game which combines scrolling beat 'em up with golf simulation gameplay. Released in 1990, it later gained some renown for its outlandish subject matter and unique blend of gameplay styles.

The player starts each hole by aiming his ball and shooting it toward the green. He then runs toward the ball, in traditional sidescroller fashion, fighting various enemies encountered along the way. These enemies include other ninjas, gophers, birds, giant mutant frogs, sharks and more.

The enemies faced depends on the environment the ninja golfer is currently in. Sharks are encountered in water hazards and snakes in the sand traps. Ninjas are encountered in all the environments, including underwater.

In this run, adelikat sports, fights, and runs his way through multiple ninjas, sharks, and even dragons to complete possibly the strangest nine holes of golf.

Donkey Kong is an arcade platform game released by Nintendo in 1981. It presented an early (if not the first) example of the platform genre, and was the first to incorporate multiple playfields, as well as the ability to jump. It is also the first game designed for Nintendo by Shigeru Miyamoto, and his influence was immediately apparent, as he introduced both the eponymous Donkey Kong and Mario (originally named Mr. Video and then Jumpman) in his debut game. Donkey Kong would become one of the most influential and commercially successful arcade games of all time, and some 35 years hence, competition for the highest score remains fierce.

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.

Drag Race is an arcade game released in 1977 by Kee Games (a subsidiary of Atari). Drag Race was designed by David Crane before the Great Exodus from Atari that would lead to the formation of Activision. At Activision, David Crane would redesign Drag Race for the Atari 2600, released in 1980 as the more widely-known Dragster. This unauthorized adaptation, among other litigation between Atari and Activision, would not be resolved until years later. The cabinet for Drag Race features controls for 2 players, including a steering wheel, a 4-way gear shifter, and a gas pedal. The cabinet even has functional analog tachometers to indicate when to shift! The display is black and white with overlays for color and text. Interestingly, the sound is in stereo, with each player hearing only the sound of their respective dragster in their speaker. The game's mechanics are inventive and gameplay is fun and exciting--as it would later be for Dragster.

Ghosts 'n Goblins (1986) (known in Japanese as魔界村 makaimura, "Demon World Village") begins with a normal scene: a half-naked knight is on a date in a graveyard with a princess. Suddenly, a demon appears and abducts the princess! The knight quickly suits up and makes rapid progres (sic) through the demon world in an attempt to rescue his royal girlfriend.

This run of the original arcade game completes the first cycle in 6 minutes and 27.17 seconds. We also have a run of the NES port, but the game engines are so different that a comparison between the two times doesn't make any sense.

Ghouls 'n Ghosts is the sequel to the brutally hard Ghosts 'n Goblins, and is brutally hard in its own right. This run is of the original coin-op version, which is most similar to the Genesis one. One of the major differences is less armor from chests.

Creative use of damage and picture perfect boss fights combine with some glitchy looking jumps as xipo takes on Lucifer's many demons. The game is completed twice (which is necessary to get the ending) and along the way we are treated to some fabulous Engrish and more information than necessary about the damsel in distress.

Golden Axe is an arcade beat em up from the late 80s. Along with its charming Conan the Barbarian style and hack and slash gameplay, it pioneered the beat em up "super" attack in the form of collectable magic. The game consists of 5 full size stages with 4 bonus stages in between for replenishing magic and HP. Gameplay consists of slicing bad guys up with weapons, riding mounts that breath fire, and casting magic spells.

Galedog slays the enemies throughout the game in record time.

Jail Break is an arcade game produced and released by Konami in 1986. The game's story is loosely based on the 1981 film Escape from New York, wherein Manhattan has become an island prison from which the hero must rescue the President of the United States, who is being held hostage. In Jail Break, the game's hero, Aki, must fight through 5 stages to rescue the warden of a prison following a mass escape.

This game is quite advanced for it's time. It offers good multi-sprite movement and decent frustrating artificial intelligence. It also has a host of semi-understandable speech phrases such as "Help me!", "Save the hostages.", "The warden has been taken hostage."

But whatever, none of that matters after what £e Nécroyeur has done to the game with some intense glitching. Bizarre sprite mess just blazes around and terminates the poor prisoners who happened to meet what was left from the hero. Climbing sheer walls, moonwalk shooting, killing aligned groups of enemies with a single bullet - no hostage shall be afraid anymore!

Jungle Hunt is an arcade game produced and released by Taito in 1982. The original version of the game, Jungle King, was the subject of a lawsuit levied against Taito by the estate of Edgar Rice Burroughs for copyright infringement for using a likeness of the Tarzan character. Jungle King featured a long-haired feral man in a fur loincloth swinging from vine to vine in the jungle, and most damning of all, an unauthorized reproduction of actor Johnny Weissmuller's famous Tarzan yell. As a result, the hero of the game was replaced with a stereotypical Victorian era "gentleman explorer", the vines were changed to ropes, and the Tarzan yell was replaced with a short tune. On a technical note, Jungle Hunt is one of the first games to feature parallax scrolling. And the music has a rousing jungle beat! Jungle Hunt was later adapted for the various home gaming platforms of the day, including the Commodore 64 (of which we have a TAS of) and the Atari 2600.

£e Nécroyeur completes one loop of all four difficulty levels in record time.

Karate Champ is an arcade game released by Data East in 1984. The game was developed for Data East by Technōs Japan. Even in this early example, Technōs Japan's penchant and talent for designing "fighting" games is readily apparent. While it was not the first fighting game (not even for Technōs Japan), it was the first to offer such a high degree of realism and sophistication, so much so that it has been identified as the defining game of the one-on-one fighting genre. The game also features an early example of digitized speech. The control scheme is atypical, featuring 2 4-way joysticks and no buttons.

£e Nécroyeur obtains the champion rank in record time.

Karate Champ: Player Vs Player is an arcade game developed by Technōs Japan and published by Data East in 1984. This is the groundbreaking sequel to Karate Champ. As Karate Champ was the defining game of the one-on-one fighting genre, Karate Champ: Player Vs Player was surely the defining game of the one-on-one player vs. player fighting genre, which would become the preeminent genre for competitive video gaming in the early to mid-1990s. Even now, players continue to compete in older games of this genre, and new games continue to be developed. Karate Champ: Player Vs Player was released less than two months after the release of Karate Champ, but gameplay aside, the game received a fairly thorough overhaul. The game features a new story, new and varied backgrounds, new and enhanced Bonus Intervals, much improved sound samples and opponent AI, and even an ending!

£e Nécroyeur achieves said ending in record time.

Kung-Fu Master is an arcade game produced and released by Irem in 1984. It is perhaps more widely known by its NES title, Kung Fu. Kung-Fu Master is the seminal game of the "beat 'em up" genre, and it would influence the arcade game industry for years to come. It was a great success for Irem, not just for the arcade market, but also later for the home video game market, as it (as well as Irem's 10-Yard Fight) was chosen as one of the launch titles for the NES. Kung-Fu Master is based on Bruce Lee's final film, Game of Death, wherein the hero must ascend a pagoda at his increasing peril, with each floor guarded by a master of a different martial art.

Magician Lord puts you in control of Elta, a wizard who has the task of retrieving eight books of wisdom from the clutches of Az Atorse, the god of destruction. By collecting certain powerups along the way, you can transform into different characters, including Rajin, Samurai, Waterman, Shinobi, Poseidon, and Dragon Warrior. Each transformation makes Elta more powerful and grants him new attacks.

Watch £e Nécroyeur blaze through the game with heavy abuse of a zipping glitch and, well, blazes.

This run improves upon its previous iteration not by time improvement, but by deciding to end the game faster rather than ending input faster; this results in a slightly longer input time, but skips out a big waiting period from the previous run.

Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter is the 4th Capcom fighting game to incorporate characters licensed from the Marvel Comics universe. It is in many ways a direct sequel to X-Men vs. Street Fighter, featuring many of the same characters and the same tag-team gameplay. It was well-received and paved the way for the Marvel vs. Capcom series.

In this playaround, the author shows many different characters, sometimes controlling both 1P and 2P, sometimes against the CPU. Infinite combos, glitches, and strange situations appear non-stop. A number of the glitches and techniques are detailed in the author's comments.

Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes is a 1998 Arcade fighting game developed by Capcom. It continues the lineage of Capcom fighting games featuring characters from Marvel comics, and is the game that paved the way for the hugely successful Marvel vs. Capcom 2.

Each team has two characters (which can be simultaneously controlled at certain times), plus a third summon assist character. This leads to quite a few things happening on the screen at once. There are quite a few glitches showcased; see the author's comments for a complete listing.

Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters is the direct sequel to Mega Man: The Power Battle. Like its predecessor, this arcade-only game does away with the levels of the classic Mega Man games and instead pits you against Robot Master after Robot Master. The game features four characters and three game modes to choose from, with different Robot Masters to fight in each mode.

For this run, Marx runs the "Search for Wily!" mode with 2 players at once, using both Mega Man and Proto Man to defeat each robot faster than just 1 player could. Though the battles are speedy, the brief waiting periods after each match allow some time for entertainment.

In this entry of the popular Metal Slug series, the evil would-be dictator General Morden launches another attempt to take over the world - or so it seems on the surface; this game proves that Morden is no Dr Wily by having the true villains turn out to be something else entirely.

Several of this game's stages branch; this run takes the shortest possible route through the game.

This run is faster than the predecessor movie by 2:41.75 minutes. Improvements come from using new strategies, using new tricks/glitches, and optimizing everything better.

Metal Slug X (2001) is a remixed version of Metal Slug 2, the second installment of an immensely popular run'n'gun series released on the Neo Geo MVS. The games are notable for incredibly detailed pixel graphics, fluid animation, and good humor; but the real key to their longevity is, of course, their high difficulty as far as survival goes.

This is x2poet's 16.42 seconds improvement over the previous movie, despite now using the hardest difficulty setting. One notable improvement is the use of both players, compared to one in the obsoleted run.

Osman is a arcade game in the spirit of Strider. It's a very obscure and underrated arcade game, which didn't see much of the light of day, thanks to various issues with the hardware... and the fact that the game is unforgivingly hard. The game never once lets you breathe, and in unassisted play, there are a lot of things to manage at the same time. This, along with the 3 health you start out with, can make clearing with just a single credit a nightmare.

The game mostly revolves along Osman and his power: he has the power to make clones of himself when he attacks that stay for a varying amount of time and reproduce the attack he just did.

This run is an improvement of 21.95 seconds over the previous one by the same author. Note that the real time of this run is 5:25.2 - The extra 1:11.57 is because the author puts his initials in the high score table after the credits roll.

You control a shinobi, Joe Musashi, who must battle his way through each level in search of hostages which must be rescued. You have shurikens, kicks and punches to defend yourself with, as well as powerful ninja magic which can clear the screen of enemies in one go.

Each level is broken down into smaller scenes, and hostages are guarded by big blokes who throw swords. Watch out for gun-toting enemy henchmen and ninjas. Reaching the end of each level will find you battling it out with a boss. These range from 8ft tall giants to helicopter gunships.

In this run, V kills all the enemies that appear throughout the game, but doesn't try to respawn any of them to increase the kill count, because that would result in endlessly killing the same enemy.

Along the way, they must fight past lots of quirky henchmen, large bosses, and more, all accompanied by cartoony graphics and stereotypical cowboy voice clips.

In this game, Johnny and Tom can use several different types of weapons, such as the elements of ice, fire, and thunder. They can collect a limited number of super attacks, denoted by the letter "B" under their health bars, to hurt everything on the screen and damage bosses heavily. Also, health does not refill between levels.

If you want to see another Arcade game involving two treasure hunters fighting lots of enemies, be sure to check out x2poet's run of Top Hunter: Roddy & Cathy.

This is a playaround of what is considered the most popular hack of Street Fighter II - Championship Edition. The hack was found in bootlegged arcade cabinets throughout the world, surpassing the original in availability in some places.

This hack features several modifications, such as the ability to change characters mid-match, teleportation, midair special moves, and new projectile attacks. Capcom later incorporated some of these new moves into Street Fighter 2 Turbo.

In this run, the author shows off all the fighters and makes good use of some of the craziness added to the game. He also shows off quite a few glitches that are quite amusing to see.


Note: As it is widely available in stand-alone form, no patch is available or necessary.

Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo is a puzzle spin-off of Super Street Fighter II Turbo first released on the arcades in 1996, then ported to several home consoles. The game works on a mechanic of normal blocks (which can group together into power gems), crash gems (which destroy gems of the same color), and counter gems sent over from opponents that count down until they turn into normal blocks. Blocks fall in pairs and after the 25th pair a diamond gem appears which destroys all gems of the same color on the playfield.

dwangoAC chooses Ryu and plays through the hardest difficulty in a mere 7 minutes and 8.15 seconds.

Tetris the Absolute: The Grand Master 2 is the second arcade game in Arika's Tetris: The Grand Master series. The Grand Master 2 introduced the less-intimidating Normal Mode to attract more casual gamers, as well as an all-new grading system in Master Mode, the continuation of TGM's original gameplay.

Tetris the Absolute: The Grand Master 2 Plus is a free upgrade of TGM2, which added TGM+ Mode and the famous T.A. Death Mode that is played in this movie. This mode is notable for starting at maximum gravity (pieces appear to always be in contact with the ground) and increasing in speed from there.

Steelix100 completes the T.A. Death Mode in record time while using wall kicks to speed up horizontal piece movement, getting 5 Gold Medals, and also achieving the Secret Grand Master grade. The in-game time is 02:42.63.

Up to three players can choose between Wade, Boris and Kyle, who have different fighting styles, speed and moves, some of which are hidden. Players must guide them through 7 different stages, along the way clashing hordes of enemies who wallop, sock, pommel, whip and slug against the players, sometimes with knives, lead pipes, bombs, bolts of electricity, spiked balls on chains, garbage cans, vise grips, molten metal and a myriad of other deadly armament. Lots of fun.

C64anabalt is an official conversion of Canabalt for the Commodore 64 (in cartridge form). Canabalt is the game that defined the endless runner genre. The game controls consist of a single jump button to alter the height of the player's suit-clad character, who runs across a war-torn city at an ever increasing pace.

At the incredible speeds reached in this TAS, the building generator can bug out and fail to create sections of buildings. Author dwangoAC had to carefully avoid these bugs in order to successfully run the maximum distance.

There are two different versions of this port. This movie uses the Encore build, which includes a faithful port of the original soundtrack to the C64's SID sound chip.

At first glance it looks like a pleasant wooded glade on a peaceful, mild day. Watch out! It's a giant spider! Run! You don't know how it happened; you don't know how you got here, but, unfortunately, you've wandered into the Forbidden Forest!

You'll find a bow in your hand and a quiver full of arrows on your back, as well as four more full quivers on the ground beside you. You're going to need them.

The Forbidden Forest is a place on this world but certainly not of this world. It is a place of unrelenting terror and trial. It is ruled by the dreaded Demogorgon demonic king of monsters. He will send in his horde of grisly creatures against anyone who dares enter his realm. And if by some miracle, or your own skill, you should vanquish his army, you will have to face the Demogorgon himself. A word of encouragement: no one has ever returned from the Forbidden Forest alive!

Note: Loading finishes and gameplay starts at 2:32. The loading section may be seizure-inducing.

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.

You play as a treasure hunter named Panama Joe, whose goal is to find an ancient treasure hidden by Aztec warrior deep inside catacombs. But beware, the catacombs are a large maze inhabited by monsters. Bouncing and rolling skulls, dancing spiders, disappearing and re-appearing chains and tons of fire await you. You'll have to find many keys and unlock doors in order to reach your goal. Panama Joe can jump and climb ladders, but doesn't have much to offer in terms of combat. That's why the monsters in the game should be avoided: a collision with an enemy leads to a premature death. He will also find amulets which make him invulnerable for a short time. Except for the Master System version, they are activated directly when picked up.

DrD2k9, abusing a similar glitch present in the Master System version, completes the game in record time.

Snoopy is a pet of Charlie Brown's, the everlasting loser and the main character of the "Peanuts" comic series. Snoopy only behaves species-appropriate. Most of the time he lies on the roof of his dog kennel and abandons himself to philosophical thoughts while waiting for the food.

In 1984, he was dedicated an own C64 game Snoopy. A game from a time when Jump & Runs found their feet, it is about steering Snoopy through 20 tricky levels. If you have made it, you restart at level 1 only with higher speed. The obstacles can be simple holes, moats, laser beams and more.

It's known for its controversial similarities to Nintendo's Super Mario Bros, eventually leading to its removal from store shelves. Although there are plenty of similarities in terms of level design between the two games (with the first level being practically identical), the controls differ greatly compared to Super Mario Bros.

B.C.'s Quest for Tires is a 1983 video game developed by Sydney Development and published by Sierra On-Line. It was released for not just the ColecoVision, but also the Commodore 64, Atari 8-bit family, ZX Spectrum, MSX, and Apple II. The game is based on the comic strip B.C. by Johnny Hart, with the title being a play on the title of the contemporaneous film Quest for Fire.

In the game, the player takes the role of the caveman Thor, who has to rescue his girlfriend, "Cute Chick", who has been kidnapped by a dinosaur. To do this, he must travel on his stone unicycle (actually an impossible wheel) through several levels. Each level has Thor moving from the left to the right, avoiding various dangers.

The game is considered ridiculously difficult, but MESHUGGAH beats one loop of the game in just 1 minute and 40 seconds, making it look easy.

Jumpman Junior is a game developed by Randy Glover, who described it as a "lite" version of Jumpman containing 12 levels for users without disk drives. In it, you need to defuse all of the bombs placed on Jupiter by terrorists. To do this, you must climb up ladders, touch the vines, and, of course, jump.

DrD2k9 improved most of the levels from the previous run by route changes and RNG manipulation for a total time save of 4.05 seconds.

Note: The character should not be confused with Mario, who was originally named Jumpman. Interestingly enough, Glover cited Donkey Kong as inspiration for this game. It is not known whether the naming is a coincidence or not.

- Genre: Action
- Genre: Platform
Formerly known as Halloween Harry, Alien Carnage follows our hero Harry as he single-handedly fights off an invasion of aliens intent on zombifying the populace while rescuing a large number of hostages they have taken. It is fast-paced at the general expense of control quality.

The original creators, John Passfield and Apogee Software, generously released the game as freeware in 2007 and it can be downloaded from here.

This run by Ilari plays through all four "missions" (episodes) back-to-back, as playing through the first three missions is required to unlock the fourth.

Avoid the Noid is a platform computer game for the Commodore 64 and MS-DOS, written in 1989 to promote Domino's Pizza. It was modeled after the company's ad campaign during the late 1980s. The ads featured a "noid" that destroyed pizzas and must be avoided.

The protagonist must traverse a 30-story building and deliver the pizza within 30 minutes. Colorful rabbits armed with booby traps, phone bombs, rocket launchers and bomber planes that drop water balloons seek to prevent the delivery.

Partners in crime turska & Ilari deliver the pizza in a record-breaking 03:33.52, or 7:42.00 according to the ingame clock. For details on how they did it, read the authors' commentary.
