Sonic Colors (2010) is a fast-paced platform game for the Nintendo DS featuring Sega's mascot Sonic the Hedgehog. It makes good use of the dual screens, having Sonic freely zipping from screen to screen, and also features unique "wisp" powerups, which turn Sonic into various other fast-moving objects.

Here, VanillaCoke makes very good use of the superhuman speed and reactions of tool assistance to navigate Colors much faster than a human ever could. Sonic's motion is very carefully tracked at all times to ensure the fastest possible completion. You can read the author's comments for more information.

Based on the manga known in North America as Fighting Spirit, Hajime no Ippo - The Fighting! is a game where you fight your opponents in a similar perspective to Super Punch-Out!!. You gain more special moves as the game progresses.

In this run, error1 earns those special moves and uses them to beat down his opponents as fast as possible. He also takes advantage of an interesting quirk in the opponents' AI, ensuring that they do not get up after the first knockdown. For more details, see the author's comments.

Rather than being able to explore the world freely and sequence break to her heart's content, Samus is at the mercy of a computer's will. As a result this game is very linear with virtually no chance to collect items out of order.

The in-game completion time is 0:40 and no unnecessary items are collected (0%).

The encode without door transitions is available here on YouTube.

After a major surgery, Samus's Power Suit has been reduced in appearance. To compensate, she decides to arm herself to the teeth with 250 missiles and more power bombs than she really needs. It's her favorite thing to do when sequence breaking isn't as feasible.

BioSpark collects all 100 capacity increasing items for Samus's health, missiles and power bombs. The abilities recovered from the Core-X are not part of this number.

Like in previous Metroid Fusion TASes, lowest in-game time is top priority, sacrificing some minor tricks that save real-time but would have made in-game time slightly higher. In-game completion time is 55:28, 48 in-game seconds faster than the previous run. The real-time improvement is 30.23 seconds. It appears smaller due to 1 in-game second actually being 1.06 real-time seconds in this game.


If you are interested, an alternate encode is available, that eliminates all of the door screen transitions and conversations, cutting viewing time quite a bit.

- Aims for in-game time instead of real-time
- Genre: Puzzle
Mr. Driller 2 is a fast-paced puzzle game where you have to drill to the bottom of the level within a fixed time limit.

In this run, the author drills through the ten time attack courses in slightly under seven and a half minutes. Furthermore, he aims primarily for in-game time, as it adds to the entertainment value and adds also to the strategy, as there are time bonuses in this mode which subtract time.

This is an improvement of 4.76 seconds over the previous publication, with the improvement coming from better routes and better optimization.

Sonic Advance was Sonic the Hedgehog's second appearance on a Nintendo console (being beaten by Sonic Adventure 2: Battle on the GameCube by 10 days), and he brought all his friends with him. You can play as Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, or Amy on a mission to stop Dr. Eggman from taking over South Island.

This run improves the previous submission by 19.89 seconds, thanks to a new route in Angel Island 1 and general optimization.

There's also a run using Knuckles, Tails, and a couple Sonic runs.

This movie of Sonic Advance is unique as a speedrun in one aspect: Sonic moves so fast that the "camera" of the game cannot even follow him. Therefore, he is rarely seen in the movie.

On the rare occasions we get to watch Sonic, we get to enjoy seeing him moving through walls, charging up for another dash, or making short work of bosses.

Besides the super fast speed itself, the speed also provides Sonic an ability (glitch) to pass through platforms and walls under certain conditions.

Mukki's TAS improves the previous run by 30.94 seconds, thanks to new routes and glitches explained in his comments.


Note: There are two encodes available for download; the first one is the original version, and the second one is a comparison encode: you can see the original version to the left, and what you see to the right is something made with a special emulator, hacked to force the game's camera to focus on Sonic, making it much easier to follow what Mukki is doing with him. The second YouTube stream displays these views side-by-side as well.

Sonic Advance was Sonic the Hedgehog's first appearance on a portable Nintendo console, and he brought all his friends with him.

In this run, Tails shows what he's capable of and sets off to defeat Dr. Eggman once again. He aims to do so as fast as possible without using the game-destroying glitch featured in this run as Sonic.

If you want to see more Sonic Advance runs, check out the run as Knuckles, Amy and an alternate run as Sonic where the aforementioned glitch is not used.

This run proves that Knuckles the Echidna is up to the task of zipping through levels at warp speed and defeating Dr. Eggman yet again. Don't blink! In this movie, the author doesn't take advantage of the game-destroying spindash glitch featured in this run as Sonic.

This is an improvement of 36.54 over the previous movie by the same author thanks to new shortcuts and better optimization. You can read the author's comments for more details.

In this run of Sonic Advance, the author doesn't take advantage of the game-destroying spindash glitch featured in the normal run. It goes somewhat slower because of this, but new inventive solutions are used to get through each act, and the result is still much faster than any oversized ferret ought to be moving.

There are two encodes for this movie: The first is a standard encode, whereas the second encode shows two screens: the screen on the left is the unmodified gameplay, and the screen on the right is from a hack which keeps Sonic in the center of the screen more often. (Note that this hack has no effect on the actual gameplay, only on the watcher's viewing experience.)

Note: In order for Knuckles to be available, starting from reset is needed. This is normally not allowed; refer to the rules to see the reasons.

Everybody is Kung Fu fighting…

In Kung-Fu Master, known as Spartan X in Japan, the player displays frightening reflexes that would be enough to obliterate any opponent.

In this run, the author, mugg, improves his previous run by changing the goal to getting the best in-game time, ignoring lag caused by enemy drops, among other things, in order to make for a more entertaining run. In addition, he changed the ROM used to the Japanese version, sacrificing some elements in order to make the fastest possible run. Please see the author's notes for more details.

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.

Sega's Super Monkey Ball (2001) lets you take control of one of four monkeys trapped inside a transparent ball. You must complete each stage by tilting the game level to roll your monkey using the force of gravity and colliding with objects. There are over 100 unique levels ranging in difficulty from easy to near impossible.

In this TAS, the authors start at the Expert difficulty, where they proceed to tear through most of its 60 levels as well as the 10 Master levels, using warps where necessary and breaking most of the heavily optimized console world record times.

This TAS improves upon the previous publication by nearly 16 in-game seconds, using many new route optimizations. More information can be found in the submission text.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 is the third game of the Tony Hawk series. This one introduced the revert and double tap tricks, which allowed for much longer and higher scoring combos. There are 8 main levels in the game along with a secret level unlocked after completing the final competition. Six of the levels have goals scattered across the level, with the remaining three being competitions.

In this run, Fog skates, grinds, and flies through the air across all story mode levels to complete all goals in the game as well as getting gold medals in all of the competitions as fast as possible.

We also have an "any%" run of the game if you just want to see the game completed as fast as possible.

This game is what you get if you take Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and lock it onto Sonic & Knuckles. As the name suggests, what you get is simply Sonic the Hedgehog 2 with Knuckles the Echidna as the playable character. The levels remain mostly unchanged, save for the addition of a few monitors that can only be reached as Knuckles, whose abilities from Sonic and Knuckles (gliding, climbing walls, and jumping a little lower than Sonic) remain intact.

In this run, you'll see the zones of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (colloquially referred to as West Side Island in the Japanese manual) like you've never seen them before, as Knuckles uses every trick in the book to collect over five thousand rings, with only 11 throughout the game eluding his grasp. (For the time being, anyway...)

In this run of Sonic 3 & Knuckles, Sonic has decided that getting all the emeralds is the only way to go and as such powers his way through the special stages to achieve this (and a perfect ending). This run also avoids using a glitch called horizontal underflow, which is explained in the author's comments.

For those that have seen the Knuckles 100% run (or just don't like waiting around), there is a second, smaller encode that omits the emerald collection, loading/end of stage screens and removes the Hyper Sonic flash/music.

This run of Sonic 3 & Knuckles collects the maximum number of rings possible to get with Knuckles. This leads to some interesting routes to reach out-of-the-way rings as well as opportunities to show off some new glitches.

See the floating island like never before as you tag along with Knuckles, and try to keep up as he patrols his territory while foraging for rings and revealing secrets that show why he is truly the sole guardian of the island.

We also have runs with Sonic and Tails, Tails, Sonic 100%,Knuckles 100%, and Sonic on NewGame+.

Award - Sega TAS of 2014
Ludicrous-speed bouncing around. Completed without collecting any emeralds, with both Sonic and Tails controlled by the player.

This run takes everything you know about Sonic 3 & Knuckles and turns it upside-down. It extensively uses the "scroll objects offscreen to pass through them" trick to zip and warp to places that shouldn't be reached, break bosses, and effectively skip entire stages.

This latest effort by Aglar and marzojr represents the first published improvement of this run in over four years, and the first time since this run, over seven years ago, that the authors replayed the entire game instead of replaying only select levels and then splicing input from the previous movie. Every single level is faster, and there are some surprising new glitches in several stages. For more details, see the run's comments.


The downloadable encodes in the second set use a camhack, which attempts to always keep Sonic onscreen and puts HD sprites on top of the background to make the TAS look even better.

Sonic 3 & Knuckles completed with Tails. Interestingly, the authors of this run, Aglar and marzojr, utilized a disassembly of the game in order to squeeze the most out of every trick used.

There are also runs using Knuckles (getting 100% and max rings) and Sonic (on newgame+ and getting 100%).


Every second pair of links/torrents provides camhack encodes, which force the camera to follow Tails no matter where in the level he is.

A Sonic video without Sonic! Instead, Knuckles takes the spotlight and collects all the Chaos (and Super) Emeralds.

Though, since the latter set of Emeralds isn't used for anything meaningful at all, the author has also provided a version that skips all the Super Emeralds and their respective bonus stages, which is about 9 minutes shorter. The movie files for this and other bonuses can be obtained from the author's comments.

Sonic & Knuckles is the fourth game in the Sonic series. It retains the same basic features as in the previous Sonic games (speed, rings for protection, Special Stages with Chaos Emeralds) as well as the three different shield types introduced in Sonic 3 (Fire, Water and Electric). Players can select either of the two title characters for play - either Sonic, or the all-new Knuckles the Echidna. Knuckles cannot jump as high as Sonic, but he can glide by holding the jump button while in the air. If you glide into a wall, Knuckles will also be able to climb it. He can also break through walls that Sonic can't. With these abilities, Knuckles can access different areas from Sonic, making for each level an entirely new experience.

Note: every duplicate link leads to the camhacked version of the encode.

Fast bouncing around. This is a run of Sonic the Hedgehog which avoids zipping (gaining a large speed boost from being inside terrain), unlike the other run of this game. Therefore, most levels cannot be skipped, and instead have to be traversed using a more normal route, although the author still finds a couple of alternative methods to take shortcuts (it is hard to define hard rules to ban all glitches). In this run, the game is completed without collecting the Chaos Emeralds.

Sonic bounces around surprisingly fast. The lack of Spin Dash makes the strategy a bit different from that of Sonic 2 and Sonic 3 & Knuckles runs, since preserving your momentum becomes a lot more important. However, this doesn't prevent the author from achieving crazy velocities even with such a significant limitation. In this run, the game is completed without collecting any emeralds.

This is the eighth run of this game, improving on the previous effort by 3.18 (of in-game time), primarily due to higher optimization.

To see a movie of this game that doesn't take advantage of zips, watch the "no zips" run by Aglar.

Spoiler: Hover over the screenshot.

See this run played back on a real Genesis.

Award - Sega TAS of 2012
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (1992) was the game that introduced the Super Dash Attack. The ability, referred to as Spin Dash in later games, has become one of the most beloved features of the series and, indeed, one of the most prominent features of the speedrunning scene as a whole.

In this exhilarating movie, Aglar speeds his way through this classic's varied acts making good use of Spin Dashes to finish them in record time. The author also controls Tails—Sonic's two-tailed foxy buddy—to allow for even faster routes and making shorter work of bosses.

This is an improvement of 50.76 seconds over the previous movie, thanks to better routes and general optimization as explained in the author's comments.

The Sonic games for the Sega Master System and the Game Gear are much less well known than their Genesis/Mega Drive counterparts and have a reputation for being quite challenging, especially in handheld form. You'd never know this from the speed Sonic blazes through the game here.

Unlike later 8-bit Sonic games, there are significant differences in levels between the SMS version and the Game Gear version; here the latter is used primarily for faster boss fights.

If you like this run, also check out the run for SMS Sonic 2.

F-Zero X is the 3D sequel to the popular SNES hovercraft racing title. It offers a wide array of cars, tracks and play options, and has had an active speed-running community since its release in 1998.

This TAS completes the 6 tracks of the Jack Cup in time trial mode, where you choose any track to drive solo aiming for fastest possible completion of 3 laps according to the in-game timer, accurate to the millisecond. A special input sequence is used to unlock all cars (you normally unlock cars by playing in grand prix mode).

This TAS saves 1'10"614 (in-game track totals) over the previous Jack Cup TAS by Lord Tom. For a per-track comparison, check the author's comments.

Death Race is a standalone challenge within F-Zero X, so a standalone movie seemed the best way to present it. The goal is simple: destroy the other 29 ships as quickly as possible according to the in-game clock.

This TAS completes the F-Zero X Death Race as quickly as possible, with a time of 5.866s. This improves the prior fastest TAS time of 8.927 by Katsukawa Sojuro aka Xenos (who reports an unpublished time of 6.993s by throwing the car off the side as this TAS does).

The unassisted world-record is 24.745s by Daniel, played in PAL (20.621s converted to NTSC). There's no video of that time, but this video by the same author is almost as fast.

The name's Bond... James Bond...

007 is ready for his incredibly popular first person shooter for the Nintendo 64. Rather than taking the usual stealthy strategy, secret agent 007 treats this first person shooter like any other and runs around shooting things with a complete disregard for human life, including his own.

While this run seems to be slower than the previous run, it actually plays all the regular levels faster and also plays two additional bonus levels!

Note: There are encodes of higher resolutions in the discussion thread.

Mischief Makers (1997) is one of the rare 2D sidescrollers released for Nintendo 64. The player controls Marina, the robotic maid of a lecherous and absent-minded professor Theo, who has a habit of being kidnapped constantly. The ones who abduct him every now and then are Clancers from the evil Empire. (And make sure to watch out for the plot twist at the end!)

Marina is quite a versatile cyborg. She can boost continuously in the air, ride vehicles, slide and jump like a maniac, and most importantly, shake. Make no mistake, you'll be seeing Comicalflop shake this thing, and even that thing quite a lot in this fast-paced run.

The game is broken down into 52 short areas, each of them having a separate timer. Because of this, the author aims to optimize the movie for shortest in-game time. Each stage is given a rank based on how fast the stage was completed; this run gets all S Ranks.

The game has some emulation errors, such as unnatural amounts of lag in some stages, and graphical glitches. See the author's comments for more details.

Wildwaters (also known as "Extreme Kayak" and "X-Stream") is a cancelled racing game that was in development by Looking Glass Studios for the Nintendo 64 in 1998-1999. The project was announced at E3 1999 by the company's publisher, Ubisoft, while the studio was working on Destruction Derby 64 (released in the same year), but sadly it was discontinued the following year. The game features an engine with real waterflow physics on the river, an impressive feat on the N64.

In this run, Swordless Link completes the first level (the only playable one), using the fastest character and abusing rocks, walls, and everything in his path!

Alien 3 on the NES is similar to Probe Software's adaptations of the film on other systems. While using the same overall game concept as the Sega and Commodore versions, the NES title has unique levels.

The player controls Ripley through a number of platform levels. She must not only defend herself against hordes of aliens and find the exit, but also save a number of prisoners, all within a tight time limit of only minutes per level.

Bio Force Ape was a game developed by SETA set to be released in 1991 for the Nintendo Entertainment System. After SETA folded, a prototype cart was picked up by Lost Levels, who then released it to the public. In this prototype, you take control of a genetically altered super chimpanzee with pro wrestling-style moves and guide him through a hi-tech maze to rescue his adopted family. Why wasn't this released again?

In this run, the author, RT-55J, tries to complete the game in the fastest in-game time. To do this, he uses many exploits that might have been removed if this game was actually released. For more details, as always, please see the author's notes.

This movie plays Excitebike really fast with an improvement of over a second compared to the previous movie by JXQ.

Times for each track are:

  • 0 = 36.19 (0.35 improved)

Kung Fu (1985) is a simple beat-'em-up game in which the protagonist known as Thomas has 5 floors of bad guys and bosses to fight through in order to save Sylvia, his girlfriend. Unfortunately, as the final screen tells us, their happiness "does not continue long" — a common arcade trope to make the player beat the game in a second loop.

Phil bested the predecessor movie by over a second thanks to better luck manipulation and decreasing the amount of jumps.

This movie aims for lowest in-game time. The completion times for each floor are: 1552, 1558, 1552, 1545, 1550.

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 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.

Slash Mode is an unlockable feature where the challenge is to kill 100 opponents as fast as possible. This game adds on to the original Bushido Blade's Slash Mode with an on-screen timer and more variety in enemies and environments.

Metal Gear Solid was one of the original breakthrough titles in the stealth gaming genre. It follows Solid Snake, a soldier who is infiltrating a nuclear weapons facility on a remote Alaskan island in the Fox Archipelago, codenamed Shadow Moses. Snake must rescue two hostages from FOX-HOUND, a high-tech special forces unit gone rogue, and then stop FOX-HOUND from launching a nuclear warhead.

Changes from the original release of Metal Gear Solid include

  • Addition of first-person view.
  • A level of difficulty for newcomers.
  • Improved artificial intelligence for some enemies (including bosses) on higher difficulty settings.
  • An "Alternate Round" for each difficulty, with different enemy placements.
  • 300 VR Training missions on a separate disc.

In this run, theenglishman's goal is to beat all the bosses in the game; this results in the run actually playing far more of Disc 1 than our currently published any% run, which skips literally every boss on that disc. Don't go thinking this is a low-glitch run, though!

Integral was planned for use in this branch from the start, because of a lengthy Liquid Snake monologue you can skip in Integral but not in the original version, as well as the added precision of analog controls; however, old PSX emulators could not play Intergral. With the switch to the higher-accuracy PSXHawk, theenglishman was able to TAS this version, playing on Extreme difficulty in the Normal Round, achieving the rank of "BIG BOSS" for his performance.

The raw improvement over the predecessor movie is 2:49.99, but the improvement in gameplay is actually much more than that; the raw time is inflated slightly compared to the predecessor movie because of the switch to PSXHawk, which results in slightly longer (but more accurate) loading times, on everything from transitions between rooms, to playing cutscenes, to playing CODEC conversations.

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.

The missions featured in this game include extended tutorials, obstacle courses, challenge maps, setpieces, and some unusual but interesting scenarios such as solving a murder mystery, knocking down guards like dominoes and destroying a UFO. As a reward for completing all the missions, you get a sneak peak at some concept art of Metal Gear RAY from the then-upcoming Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty.

In this run, watch as theenglishman sneaks, shoots, punches and investigates his way past the world leaderboards for each mission using clever new strategies and precise tricks. For much more information on this movie, check out the submission text.

N?K destroys all of the opponents using Haohmaru, the main hero in each game of the Samurai Shodown series.

The Samurai Shodown series differs from other well-known fighting games of its time in a couple of ways. First, all characters can use a weapon, usually a sword (or occasional animal friends, like a dog or a falcon). Second, the games focus more on hard hits instead of combos, showing a slowdown effect when powerful strikes are landed.

In the 16th century, a sword surfaces that is so powerful, so evil that warriors from all over the globe seek it out. It is Soul Edge, a demon blade. From America to Europe to Japan, these warriors fight each other for the chance to obtain it. Soul Blade is a 3D weapons fighting game that chronicles their story.

A complete 3D fighting game that allows for side steps, Soul Blade has twelve colorful fighters (ten standard, two hidden, plus additional costumes for a few fighters), each with various weapons and styles. The first ten can be used in all the combat modes, while the hidden two can only be used in versus and arcade mode.

Namco enhanced the arcade version (called Soul Edge) by adding a well done CGI intro, plus a story mode to the addition of the traditional team, survival, and time attack modes. The story mode goes into greater detail about each character, and is presented in an ancient book format. The story mode also allows you to unlock more of each characters' extra weapons. These weapons, which vary in lengths, stats, and durability, add to the options available players in the versus mode.

Soul Blade's sequel is SoulCalibur, both in the arcades and for the Sega Dreamcast.

The follow-up to Tekken is a versus fighting game featuring similar mechanics, with four buttons assigned to left and right punches and kicks. New moves include back throws, chain-throws, and a sidestep unique to Kazuya and Heihachi Mishima. Tackles now inflict damage depending on the distance.

This time, N?K and Spikestuff switch to a single round per stage to complete the game even faster.

Tekken Force, a paramilitary organization protecting the Mishima karate fighters, is nearly obliterated by the mighty Ogre. Heihachi Mishima's only hope is his grandson Jin Kazama, who lives with his mother Jun, unaware of his legacy. When the Ogre attacks his home and presumably kills his mother, Jin seeks out his grandfather and learns the martial arts of the family. On his nineteenth birthday, Heihachi announces the King of the Iron Fist Tournament 3, hoping that Jin will use the opportunity take out the meddlesome Ogre.

Tekken 3, like its predecessors, is a versus fighting game. New features include prominently featured side-stepping, allowing characters to retreat into the background and back during fights, more combo throws, fifteen more characters, and reduced jumping capabilities to allow for more realistic combat. Also included are two minigames: Tekken Force, a beat-em-up stage that unlocks a new character, and Tekken Ball, a beach volleyball variant where characters are hurt by the ball.

While this movie by Spikestuff seems slower than his previous TAS, it is in fact faster by 0.03 seconds in in-game time. This is because the game improperly lags during the True Ogre fight in the emulator used in the previous publication (PSXjin). This run was done on BizHawk's PSXHawk core called Octoshock, which doesn't have the aforementioned issue. Not much has changed otherwise.


The encodes feature commentary by the author as soft subtitles.

Prince of Persia is a 2D platformer that is commonly regarded as a progenitor of the cinematic platform genre. Rather than following the more common jump-and-run mechanics, it focuses on careful advancement through fairly complex levels, emphasizing the protagonist's vulnerability and survival aspect. Rotoscoping technique is used to give more realism to the animation of the characters' movements.

This run by Challenger, done on the Sega CD port of the game, defeats Jaffar in record time.

Sonic the Hedgehog CD was developed to showcase a new Genesis/Mega Drive peripheral, the Sega CD.

The game is markedly different than other Sonic games; aside from "improved" graphics and sounds, each level has 2 to 4 alternate versions that correspond to different time periods. Sonic can move between them to affect the gameplay and ending.

This run is 31.53 seconds faster in in-game time than nitsuja's run thanks to various optimization and minor route changes. For more information on the improvements, please read the author's submission notes.

There are two sets of encode files, the first recorded with the American region music and the second with the Japanese region music.

Trivia: This game slightly predates the Mega Drive/Genesis version, so it features the official first appearance of Sonic's flying mutant fox friend, Tails.

In a series of vertical shoot 'em ups, Pop'n TwinBee: Rainbow Bell Adventures is a side-scrolling platformer with jetpack mechanics similar to Sparkster. Twinbee, Winbee, and Gwinbee must recover the seven Rainbow Bells and rescue Princess Melora from Dr. Warmon.

Instead, arandomgameTASer decides to play as Winbee alone, who leaves the others in the dust with her faster jet charging.

Interestingly, this game only animates at around 12-20 fps (15 fps on average), contrary to most SNES games, which animate at 60 fps.

Super Metroid is a very well-known game in the world of TASing, and there have been many speedruns of this game published here at TASVideos over the years. This run demonstrates one of the hardest categories of speedrun possible for the game, Reverse Boss Order. In this category, Samus kills the four main bosses backwards from the game's intended order.

This category is especially difficult since Samus does not receive her extra suits until quite late in the run. As a result, most of the gameplay in Norfair is a desperate race against the clock as Samus's health decreases constantly in the heated areas. Needless to say, every single energy tank matters much more than it ever would in a normal run. Also, water areas in Maridia are quite difficult to navigate quickly without the Gravity Suit.

This run by Saturn improves on the previous movie by 1:24.26 due to a number of new tricks and strategies. See the submission notes for more details.

Super Metroid is a game that requires very little introduction. Samus Aran, a bounty hunter, returns to the planet of Zebes, in order to explore its depths, and defeat Mother Brain and the Space Pirates.

This movie sees the reinstatement of the in-game category, which was previously merged with the realtime run. Despite being slightly slower in terms of real time, this speedrun is both extremely optimised and breaks previous records once thought to be the limit of the game. The completion time stands at 0:22:38, and is displayed at the end of the game as 0:22, considered the lowest minute breakpoint attainable without resorting to game-breaking exploits... at least until another run comes and smashes that expectation to bits, as they often have here at TASVideos.

In accordance with standard procedure, Samus discarded all of the items she collected on previous adventures before embarking on this one.

Super Metroid has a wide variety of time-saving glitches to exploit, many of which are explained on the Super Metroid Tricks page. Be sure to check it, as well as the author's comments, for more information on the improvements. (Note that this run is an improvement on the previous, even though the time seems slower, because this run was done on a more accurate emulator which unfortunately produces more lag.)

If you prefer to watch the fastest completion without getting all the items and without any large skip glitches, check out Super Metroid in 38:41 by Taco & Kriole.


Every second encode link leads to a version where all door transitions, elevators and item jingles were cut out.

Taking place before the events of Punch-Out!!, the game sees Little Mac spar with his coach, Doc Louis, through three progressively difficult matches, which are each cleared by knocking him down once.

As with the other Punch-Out!! runs on this site, this run by McHazard aims for in-game time first, then real time. The clock times achieved are listed below:

New Super Mario Bros. Wii is a 2009 side-scrolling platform video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Wii video game console. New Super Mario Bros. Wii follows Mario as he fights his way through Bowser's henchmen to rescue Princess Peach. Mario has access to several power-ups that help him complete his quest, including the Ice Flower, the Fire Flower, and the Starman, each giving him unique abilities. There are some new powerups to this game, such as the Propeller Hat which lets the player ascend very quickly. (You'll see a lot of that hat in this run.)

In this run, Soig obsoletes the previous publication from Got4n by 12 in game seconds with more optimized movement, despite the longer run time due to emulation differences. More information can be found in the submission text.

Award - Computer TAS of 2013
Braid is a famous indie platform game with some unique puzzlework. It was originally released on Xbox Live Arcade before being ported to other platforms. A major feature of the game is the player's unlimited ability to reverse time and "rewind" actions, even after dying. The game itself was intended to be an artful deconstruction of traditional video game concepts.

Many tricks are used to complete the speedrun mode in an astounding 20:11.17 according to the internal timer; see the author's comments for more information.


If you understand French pretty well, you may be interested in watching the special episode of Speed Game, featuring commentary from Coeurdevandale and the author of this TAS, keylie. The tricks used are also explained there.

Rosenkreuzstilette (ローゼンクロイツスティレッテ) is a platform game published by independent Japanese studio [erka:es]. Gameplay resembles a Mega Man clone, with Spiritia collecting various weapons from each boss defeated, and alternate protagonist Grolla playing more like Zero from the Mega Man X and Mega Man Zero series.

See how many things from different Mega Man games you can spot while watching this! Stage by stage notes are in the author's comments.

This movie uses Spiritia. For more action, we also have a Grolla movie by the same author.

It is 57.34 seconds faster than the previous run by in-game timing parameters, and an improvement of 1087 frames(18.1s) through directly comparable improvements. (Note that the reason why this run appears to be 3s slower than the old run by standard TAS timing parameters is because the published run ends input before the final boss fight whereas this one does not, since doing so is detrimental to in-game time).

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.
