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.

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.

In Neo Turf Masters, you can pick one of six available golfers and compete on a number of golf courses around the world, including Japan (Fujiyama Oriental Golf Club), America (Grand Canyon Golf Course), Australia (Blue Lagoon Golf Course), and Germany (Baden Golf Course). The game features two modes of play: Stroke Play, in which the player attempts to get the best score by playing all 18 holes, and Match Play, in which two players compete to see who can win more of the 18 holes.

This run by mamuuuut plays the toughest course (Australia) and aims to get the lowest (best) final score while showing off unusual or unexpected paths.

- Genre: Platform
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.

Disappointed with good movies where characters move just too slowly?

Look no further! In this extremely high-speed run, Dashjump demonstrates how to break the sound barrier and why Sonic is the fastest character in the video game universe.

Dashjump's TAS improves the previous run by 25.50 seconds. Individual act improvements are listed in the submission text.

The author doesn't collect any of the Chaos Emeralds in this movie, but it demonstrates almost every single move that Sonic is capable of in this game.

Aside from Tetris, Super Mario Land is probably the most well-known cartridge for the original Game Boy. It features a marked departure from traditional Mario enemies and themes, including Sphinxes, seahorses, fists emerging from pipes, Egyptian-themed levels, Chinese-themed levels and UFO-themed levels.

This publication improves on the previous one by 4.33 seconds from a new trick that allows Mario to warp around the screen on auto-scrolling levels as well as a new strategy used to end the mandatory bonus game after each world quicker.

Award - First edition TAS of 2015
Ikaruga (2001) is a vertical shoot 'em up published and developed by Treasure as a spiritual successor to its earlier title, Radiant Silvergun (1998). It was first released on arcade machines, then eventually ported to Dreamcast, GameCube, XBLA, Android, and even Steam, thanks to the loyal following among the Western shoot 'em up fans. GameCube version was chosen for creation of this TAS as it provided both the most arcade-accurate port, and the most accurately emulated platform of those available at the time.

Ikaruga features a polarity mechanic wherein enemies can be black or white, shooting black or white bullets, respectively. Additionally, player ships themselves can switch between black and white: when white, ship absorbs white bullets and deals extra damage to black enemies, and vice versa. When enough bullets are absorbed, a powerful enemy-seeking attack can be unleashed. As such, typical gameplay consists of frequent polarity switching, chain-killing enemies, and absorbing bullets instead of dodging them; to capitalize on this, the author chooses to control both player ships in order to absorb as many bullets as possible, do more damage, and pick off escaping enemies without breaking a kill chain.

The goal of this TAS is to maximize the score. Ikaruga's scoring system mainly consists of color-based enemy chaining: killing three enemies of the same color in a row increases chain value, messing up the color sequence resets it. Absorbing bullets and lasers, speedkilling bosses, and having spare lives at the end are also significant score boosts—all of these are used in the TAS to the fullest extent. The final score is a massive 50,230,200, only attainable with two players.


Ikaruga has been extensively competed in both Western and Asian gaming communities, leading to publication of an official superplay DVD, as well as blessing us with many amazing feats of unassisted gameplay. If you've enjoyed this TAS and would like to see what some of the best human players have to offer, make sure to watch VTF-INO's unassisted doubleplay, in which the player attempts to achieve maximum score by controlling both ships in realtime; also check out RNA's flawless stage 5 boss fight done solo, and Sa Suisai's full-game unassisted playthrough on Normal difficulty, executing some inhumanly precise chains on the XBLA version of the game.

Resident Evil 4 features a completely new story and an innovative "over-the-shoulder" third person perspective that replaces the fixed camera system of the previous three Resident Evil games.

Special agent Leon Kennedy is on a mission to rescue Ashley Graham, the daughter of the U.S. President, from a sinister cult in a remote rural part of Europe. Leon must fight hordes of violent villagers and mutated monsters on his way to save her.

The Mercenaries is an unlockable minigame in Resident Evil 4. It is unlocked by completing the main game regardless of difficulty.

The objective of the game is to kill enemies to earn points before the evacuation chopper arrives in the allotted time.

In this run, Ubercapitalist plays through the Castle level of The Mercenaries game mode using Wesker. He obtains the maximum amount of kills and the highest score using multiple weapons and major amount of luck and spawn manipulation. Ubercapitalist explains in great detail his process in the submission text.

For those who want to watch the run without all of those item pickups, Ubercapitalist has provided an "Artist's Cut" of the movie here.

Supposedly, the goal in each level is to smash Tetris blocks into a sphere until the core is exposed, which ends the level. Along the way, the player racks up points from various block-breaking combos.

In this movie, Acmlm rapid-fires Tetris blocks so fast that no one else has any idea what's going on. Even the game itself is confused. Levels do not end properly until the entire sphere is blown apart. As for the timer when it reaches zero, well, see for yourself. :)

Wetrix is a strange Tetris-style game in which you place blocks onto a large playing field and score loads of points by making lakes and surviving another second (every drop of water that leaks off the field counts against you). This run aims to get the highest score possible in the 1 minute challenge.

The final score is 2,613,944 points. There are huge bonus multipliers which stack together to produce the massive score.

In this game, representatives of the high schools compete in five no-holds-barred events.

In this run, GuanoBowl ends all the races early by knocking his opponent out. Rockets are purchased to make the hammer throw go farther and gum is used to help him hold his breath underwater. This run gets the extended ending by winning as Crash's school.

In this run, inzult improves the predecessor movie by GuanoBowl by 3:18.55 minutes.

Lee Trevino's Fighting Golf is a one to four-player NES/arcade game released by SNK in 1988. Gameplay is relatively simplistic, but was on par with video games of the period. The player has to avoid sand traps, water hazards, rough ground and trees. The courses range from relatively straightforward fairways to elaborate arrangements of sand traps. Despite the title, no fighting is involved in the game.

The player can choose between four different golfers, of which each character has his or her own advantages and disadvantages. Lee Trevino is playable as a character named Super Mex (an actual nickname of his); other characters include Pretty Amy, Miracle Chosuke and Big Jumbo. Despite having the worst control, Big Jumbo is used here for his specialty with ranged hits.

In this run, Acmlm uses precise hits and luck manipulation to beat all 18 holes as fast as possible, which results in a very low final score as well.

This movie aims for the fastest possible time to get a score of 999999 in this game. A surprising 17.53 seconds have been shaved off the previous movie through the discovery of a new glitch.

It warps directly to the 18th level and fills half of the field quickly to be able to operate short distances in the top part of the field. From there on, it only gets tetrises (4-line clearings) until the score is maxed out.

A glitch involving pressing several directional buttons at once is used to manipulate luck for the next pieces. Flickering of the next piece block and piece in play results. Of course, the fun doesn't stop there, the L blocks also have their say in getting tetrises.

For the record, this is the fastest speed the NES game is capable of. For more extreme Tetris fun, please see movies from Arika Online.
There's some really awesome stuff there. (Click to download - 14 MB)

Bishi Bashi Special is a game that's similar to Salary Man Champ, being a collection of mini-games with a variety of rules.

This game has two modes, the main mode and Time Trial mode. Time Trial mode features the car level from the main mode as well as a lot of original levels where a button must be pushed over and over as fast as the player can, aptly nicknamed "button mashers".

While this movie by Spikestuff seems slower than the previous publication that runs through Time Trial mode, it is, in fact, faster by 0.39 seconds in in-game time. For more details, see the author's comments.

Bishi Bashi Special is a collection of 46 mini-games with a variety of rules.

Here Spikestuff is playing through them quickly while picking up the maximum score of 10 for each. Getting the high score sometimes has odd conditions, like the elephant race where finishing 7-2 is needed for the 10.

Bishi Bashi 3: Step Champ is a conversion of the arcade with the same name. This time around dancing and feet coordination is key to success as this outing is specially made to be played with Konami's Dance Dance Revolution dance mat.

As usual with the Bishi Bashi games, it's full to the brim with random and rather off-beat mini-games that often times pokes fun at Konami's own franchises (such as Track & Field and Beatmania). Most of the mini-games are either of the button mashing variety (such as the mini-game in which the player has to throw a tantrum faster than his siblings to get a toy by stomping his feet on the ground repeatedly), but there are also games where the player has to time which button to press (one such game is very similar to Dance Dance Revolution).

Up to three players can face off against one another to determine who is the ultimate Step Champ.

Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions (Special Missions in Europe) is a series of 300 action-packed extra missions for Metal Gear Solid with enough scintillating Snake-sneaking setpieces to last a lifetime. Originally a part of Integral, the 1999 Japanese re-release of the original game, the VR Missions received a standalone release a year later in North America and Europe as an extra bonus to satisfy fans hungry for more tactical espionage action.

In the Metal Gear universe, VR serves as a substitute for combat experience, allowing trainees to learn how to use weapons and participate in advanced combat scenarios without having to actually be on the battlefield, similar to the training programs in The Matrix. This concept of artificial or digital training serving as a poor man’s replacement for combat experience (particularly where child soldiers are concerned) has been a running theme in the series.

In this run, theenglishman sneaks, shoots, punches and investigates his way past the world leaderboards for each mission, this time skipping the Practice levels using SRAM, that saves him 34:31.71 minutes and makes the run much more entertaining overall compared to the one it obsoletes.

- Genre: Sport
Kirby is a spherical character, so naturally it makes sense that he should be whacked around like a golf ball. A ball that can absorb the powers of enemies and use them to his advantage, of course!

This run aims for best score, then fastest time. A lot of hole-in-ones are scored, even at great time expense.

Note that there is a second series of courses which are similar to the original set. These are played as well for sport, before attacking the final boss and winning.

This run is 1:52.25 minute faster than snc's previous TAS. There's no improvement in the number of hole-in-ones, but his secondary goal is done significantly faster!

- Genre: Shooter
One of those hard-to-emulate games because of the hardware assistance provided on the actual cartridge, Star Fox is a well-known 3D shooter. Avoiding obstacles can be tricky on the digital directional pad, so some of the stunts seen are impressive to anyone who knows how hard this game can be.

Emulation of this game is not correct. Lag present on the SNES is not represented in this run. Expect the speed to be higher than actually seen on a real console. For this reason, the audio track lags severely behind the rest of the run. As a result, some of the bosses can be defeated before the boss music begins.

This movie was played on Panel De Pon, the Japanese version of Tetris Attack.

The only difference in gameplay between the two versions is how the scoring system works. Instead of doing many combos in a chain as in the US version movie, author zvsp uses a few very large combos to reach the goal about 30 seconds faster, finishing with an ingame time of 0'25.

Zvsp also improves the previous run by 1.31 seconds by selecting his character in the optimal way.

- Aims for maximum score
- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Puzzle
This Tetris Attack movie aims to get the highest score in the shortest amount of time possible. The result is obtained by executing multiple combos simultaneously, building them up to level 13. Combo bonuses are no longer awarded after getting 13 consecutively due to a bug in the game.

The level of play is far and above what any human could do in real-time on this game.

This is an improvement of 7.88 over the previous movie by the same author, zvsp. He does this primarily by starting each chain with one explosion. That way, he can explode the saved blocks during the chain, which, thanks to a glitch, gets him around 25000 points for every 13x chain. This allows him to beat the game in four chains instead of the previous five.

Nester, once the mascot of Nintendo Power, and his sister Hester have decided to star in a bowling game

As with every other bowling game in existence, you roll a ball down an alley in an attempt to knock down 10 pins. To do this in this game, you have to try and match up two gauges: Spin and Power. The Spin gauge determines how far left or right the ball will go, and the Power gauge determines how hard your character throws the ball.

This run improves the predecessor movie by 4.09 seconds.

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.
