Award - Gameboy TAS of 2016
Pokémon: Blue and Red Version are part of the first generation of the Pokémon franchise. They were developed by Game Freak and published by Nintendo in North America in 1998. They feature a 10-year old boy who ventures around the Kanto region and aim to become the Pokémon champion. During his journey, he encounters various monsters, which he can catch to use for battles, or just to fill up his Pokédex.

In this run, MrWint fills the Pokédex without resorting to any glitches and obtains the diploma in both games in less than four hours. Note that Mew isn't caught here; this is because it can only be obtained through either an event or glitches.


The official encodes feature commentary by the author as soft subtitles. In addition, the downloadable encodes feature additional audio tracks: The first (default) track features audio from both games, while the second and third tracks feature audio from Blue and Red, respectively.

There's also an alternate encode provided by the author which features a detailed overlay.

While the NES versions of Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Jr. don't share the same amount of stages, they appear to be similar enough to be beaten at the same time with the same controller input.

This movie by newcomer CyorisRetro beats both games in record time.

If you like this movie, you may want to check out movies of other games in which as many as four games are played simultaneously with one controller.

Note: The encodes are stacked horizontally, even though the screenshot is stacked vertically.

Encoder's Note: There are multiple audio tracks included with the downloadable encodes. Track 1 is the combined audio of both games panned so that the left channel is the audio of Donkey Kong and right is that of Donkey Kong Jr. Track 2 contains Donkey Kong's audio and track 3 contains Donkey Kong Jr's audio.

Award - Innovative TAS of 2007
The games Mega Man 3, 4, 5 and 6 are all the same. Eight robot masters are defeated and Mega Man steals their weapons. After some kind of distraction, Mega Man attacks Wily's fortress and it typically gets blown up. If you don't believe that's true, we offer this movie.

While driving home the point in honor of our first multi-game movie, Baxter and AngerFist prove that Capcom really has been making the same game over and over again by playing Mega Man 3, 4, 5 and 6 using the same input.

No attempt is made to synchronize the endings of these games. Mega Man 6 finishes first and Mega Man 4 finishes last.

Encoder's note: There are more encodes (labeled multitrack) available in the Archive collection. Track 1 contains the audio of all four games arranged in such a way that Mega Man 3 and Mega Man 5's audio are on the left audio channel and Mega Man 4 and Mega Man 6's audio are on the right audio channel. Tracks 2 to 5 contain the sole audio of Mega Man 3 to Mega Man 6 respectively.

We recommend sitting back as far as possible and looking (staring?) at the center of the screen when watching the encode.

If you like this movie, you may like to check out some other movies in which multiple games are played simultaneously with one controller.

While decidedly not the same game, the Super Mario Bros. games on the NES are similar enough in game mechanics and controls that all four of them can be played at once with the same input.

This second version of the quad-run utilizes the credits glitch found in the newest Super Mario Bros. 3 run. As such, the focus is now on finishing Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels as fast as possible, allowing Super Mario Bros. 3 to entertain while waiting for the other three games to progress. The run also features an ending that may surprise you.

If you like this movie, you may want to check out some other movies in which multiple games are played simultaneously with one controller.

This movie has been played back and verified on console during SGDQ 2016.

Watch as two Final Fantasy games, V and VI (VI is also III in North-American publication), are beaten with one controller's input. Since FFVI takes longer to beat than FFV, the FFV run also beats a few optional bosses which are not fought in the single-game run of FFV. The two games finish at the same time.

Since FFV is only available in Japanese, FFVI is also played with the Japanese version. The (J) version of FFVI also has an equipment glitch which is not present in the (U) version. Otherwise, this run of FFVI is quite similar to our single-game FFVI movie.

For more details, we suggest you read the submission comments.

Note: The encodes are stacked horizontally, even though the screenshot is stacked vertically.

In the latest in silly ideas turned into inspirations for our ever-dedicated TASers, this movie takes one controller and wires it into three SNES emulators at once; the same input is used to play 3 games simultaneously with one controller. There are also animations constructed with spare controllers during this movie.

This movie beats the first three Mega Man X games with 100% completion each (an improvement on its predecessor, which beat only the first two games and without 100% completion).

If you like this movie, there are other movies that beat four games with one controller!

Note: There might be a visual anomaly during the battle with Serges in X 2. This is an emulator bug relating to the Cx4 chip used in the Mega Man X 2 cartridge.

Encoder's Note: There are multiple audio tracks included with the encode. Track 1 is the combined audio of all 3 games panned so that the left side is MMX1, center is MMX2, and right is MMX3. Track 2 contains MMX1's audio, track 3 contains MMX2's audio, and track 4 contains MMX3's audio.

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.
