- One player in a multiplayer game
- Forgoes time-saving death
- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Action
Dragon Unit (also known as Castle of Dragon) is an obscure arcade game about a castle with a dragon in it. Perhaps it's not the most original sounding game; but it does have nudity, gratuitous violence, and Engrish to make up for it. The action is very fast paced, and with the help of TAS skills, the dragon master is dispatched quicker than a hard boiled egg.

We also have a movie of the NES version and a 2 player run.

Contra: Hard Corps (1994) was the first game in the series to be exclusively released on a non-Nintendo console. The game took a lot of elements from previous installments and spiced them up with even more dynamic combat, different playable characters, nonlinear plot and about twice the amount of boss fights.

In this movie the author takes the secret "fifth ending", thereby skipping most of the game. If you want to see runs which play more of the game, then you should see this run (with the quickest "normal" ending) or this run (with the "best" ending).

The Japanese version was chosen because, for some reason, it gives the players a health bar, allowing them to take some damage without dying.


While the time may look longer, it is a 0.25 second improvement over the previous movie. The previous movie used an inaccurate FPS (60) instead of the standard Genesis framerate (59.923).

Contra: Hard Corps is the only game of the Contra series released on the Genesis / Mega Drive console. In this game, you get to choose between four characters, each with different abilities and weapons. The Japanese version was chosen because, for some reason, it gives the players a health bar, allowing them to take some damage without dying.

You can also get several different endings, based on which choices you make at several points. In this movie, the author takes the "best ending", which is the only ending that rewards the player with a "GOOD JOB!" screen at the end. There is also a run which obtains a worse ending but still shows off a number of the game's stages. There is also a run which gets the secret ending.

Contra: Hard Corps is the only game of the Contra series released on the Genesis / Mega Drive console. In this game, you get to choose between four characters, each with different abilities and weapons.

This game has four completely different final stages, each with a different ending, depending on the choices you make earlier. This run takes the second quickest path leading to one of these final stages. There are also runs which get the faster secret ending and the best ending.

The Japanese version was chosen because for some reason it gives the players a health bar, allowing them to take some damage without dying.

Fang is used due to a glitch that allows him to deliver fully charged D weapon shots without taking time to charge them.

This movie by Soig beats adelikat's old movie by 4.38 seconds due to general improvements. To learn more about these improvements, you can read the author's comments.

The Genesis version of Double Dragon, released by Accolade without license from Sega, is considered the most faithful port of the original arcade game. In addition, due to the more powerful hardware on the Genesis, the slowdown problems from the original 8-bit game have been fixed.

In this movie, Dimon12321 kicks, punches, and whips his way through the game, making short work of any Black Warriors that dare to challenge him.

The Genesis remake of Marble Madness is not directly comparable to the original. In addition to having much worse audio quality, the rules on where (and what) the marble can go (and do) are relaxed, allowing for many shortcuts not possible on the NES.

WARNING: The awesomeness of Hyper Sonic may damage your eyes or trigger seizures in susceptible people.


Note: This movie begins from a save state from the end of regular mode in order to access Hyper Sonic from the beginning of the game. There is no other way to access it outside of a hack. We normally do not accept movies which begin from a save state.

ToeJam and Earl in Panic on Funkotron is the sequel to the first ToeJam and Earl game for the Sega Genesis. Both games are well-known for their distinctive funk soundtracks. However, unlike the first game, which has randomly generated levels, this game is more of a conventional side-scrolling platformer.

In this game, Funkotron has been invaded by Earthlings, and it's up to our heroes to fix the problem by capturing Earthlings in Trap-o-matic jars and sending the jars to Earth on rocketships. Early in the game, you'll see ToeJam visit a special area called the Hyperfunk Zone multiple times. After these visits, he has unlimited use of superjars, which require fewer throws to bottle enemies than ordinary jars do.

This run gets the good ending by finding the 10 favorite items of Lamont, the Great Funkapotamus. All of the items are needed to get Lamont out of the Funk Dimension at the end of the game. The objects themselves are hidden in secret doors, most of which don't even exist until you've officially asked your friends for directions, but a few can be entered early without the need to trigger the dialogue.

Battletoads (1991) is a futuristic beat 'em up game known for its extreme difficulty spread over 12 difficult levels. The mechanics in the game also change drastically from level to level, making the game one of the hardest and most varied for the NES.

In this game, the second most diabolical evil genius in the universe, The Dark Queen, has kidnapped Princess Angelica and Pimple - a battletoad. Rash and Zitz must save them by traveling through the most insane multilevel set of plans ever designed. This includes falling down huge shafts, racing through obstacle courses at breakneck speeds, riding on snakes through a massive maze of spikes, passing through a killer ventilation system, navigating through a missile defense system, climbing a never ending revolving tower, and much much more. Along the way, the Battletoads must also face off against an evil army of robots, genetically engineered rodents, and The Dark Queen herself.

In this run, feos, Alyosha, and Samsara improved upon the previous publication by 2:39.33 using many new tricks and glitches.

Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers 2 is quite an improvement over the original Chip 'n Dale in terms of graphics and a whole lot of other things. Thankfully, the original game's solid controls haven't been changed. The plot of this game is that Fat Cat has stolen the Pharaoh's Urn and wants to use its power (for evil purposes, of course).

This run only uses Chip. It's an improvement of 1:19.53 over the previous "1 player" publication, through careful optimization, some new tricks and manipulating the bosses.

Double Dragon 2 is a beat'em-up game starring Billy (or Bimmy, depending on the game version) and Jimmy Lee in a quest to get revenge on a gang for killing Billy's girlfriend. Their journey starts on city streets, but it eventually goes to a variety of places like a helicopter, a dark forest, a haunted mansion, and a final fight bordering on the supernatural. You must play the hardest difficulty, Supreme Master, in order to reach the true final boss.

One interesting feature of the game is that some very powerful moves can only be used from a crouching position, usually after landing from a jump or getting up from a knockdown. This is why you see the player jump so frequently.

This run by xipo plays the game with only 1 player. It is slower than the two-player run largely because it can't use tricks like the two players hitting each other with flying knees. However, there are still some interesting tricks and strategies in this movie well worth watching.

Marble Madness is an isometric game similar in its style to Snake Rattle 'n Roll. The objective in these two games is quite different, though. In this game, the player must roll a marble from one point to another. This is, of course, not as easy as it sounds, and certainly not as easy as it looks in this movie.

Aglar improved adelikat and Deign's movie by 5.10 seconds.

A second encode is available using a camera hack to focus on the marble, which subtly alters the gameplay. Also, you can see this movie played back on an actual NES!

The New Ghostbusters II is a much different game than the USA edition, even though they are based on the same movie. The European version, shown here, takes a Blaster Master-esque approach to the gameplay with a top-down view.

Zus has spent a lot of his time making sure enemies are in highly ideal places, which in turn means that a lot of re-records were spent comparing and working out the best possible route. As a result, Zus saved over 11 seconds from his previous version.

Pipe Dream is a game about keeping unsolidified jello in tubes long enough for it to solidify. More or less.

In this movie, RobynS places pipes faster than a plumber on fifteen cups of coffee and only goes as far as absolutely required to contain the goo.

Unfortunately, the annoying music played though most of the game is the "turbo mode" music, and since turbo mode makes the goo flow faster, it can't be ignored in a run that aims for fastest time. It's a good idea to just turn off sound while watching this movie.

This movie stops after playing though all stages once. After that, the set of stages repeats endlessly, not unlike Elevator Action and Circus Charlie.

This run improves upon the previous publication by 40.96 seconds by using a new trick which enables the flooz to start flowing much quicker than normal.

In River City Ransom, Alex and Ryan face off against gangs of students and evil bosses to win their town back and rescue their girlfriends. Several bosses need to be found and beaten before you can enter River City High and beat up the final bad guys (including an obvious imitation of the Double Dragon heroes). The gameplay also has elements of an RPG, where you can level up your character with shop purchases, but none of that is done here.

This is a run that only uses Ryan, who is normally Player 2. This has some very important differences compared to the two-player speedrun. One cutscene is significantly shorter when playing only as Ryan. There is less lag, though there are also fewer glitches and acrobatics. More boss fights, especially at the end, use the boss's superior strength against him, taking advantage of an exploit with kicking trash cans. For more details, see the run's submission comments.

In the year 2029, evil Emperor Garuda somehow establishes a dictatorial government in the United States. After many lives are lost, two ninjas attempt to overthrow him.

Shadow of the Ninja is one of the rare games in which constantly jumping and slashing is faster than regular running. The author makes sure to use this move extensively both to travel and to deal damage to enemies, and so it may seem that the ninja has a severe case of ADHD.

This game was released in Europe as Blue Shadow and in Japan as Kage.

TASeditor improves the previous run by 17.91 seconds, thanks to new tricks and better optimisation in many places.

This game is a little similar to Bubble Bobble. Players defeat hordes of enemies in each of fifty stages, only progressing when all enemies are gone. Enemies can either be turned into snowballs or killed by rolling a snowball over them. Unlike Bubble Bobble, though, there is a boss fight every ten stages.

This is a one-player run through the game, which obsoletes the old two-player TAS. Though using two players is faster in some levels, a multiplayer run is slower overall due to the time taken for both players to play the unskippable bonus games.

The guy with an infinite supply of ammo and insatiable bloodlust is back! Known as Probotector II: Return of the Evil Forces in Europe, this game is, implicitly, Contra 2. Without the 2.

This movie is 27.06 seconds faster than the previous run due to a new trick that allows the final boss to be completely skipped in a blaze of glitchy glory. For more information, please read the submission comments.

We also have a run that uses two players, but forgoes the final level glitch.

TMNT2 is a classic beat-em-up game with 4 classic main characters: Raphael, Leonardo, Michelangelo and Donatello. The latter is the only turtle used in this movie.

This movie is Baxter's new and improved version, which is an astounding 4 minutes faster than his previous version. Donatello has learned the secret ninja art of teleportation and... no, actually, a glitch that enables the player to move around extremely fast is used to hit all the enemies as soon as they come on screen. But most of the improvement comes from outstanding luck manipulation.

Tengen Tetris is a version of Tetris made by Atari, which pretty much follows the basic formula of stacking tetrominoes and completing lines. Even the theme music has a similar feel to the more familiar NES Tetris game by Nintendo.

This movie plays through just the final level, level 17, and clocks in at just over one line per second. Notably, luck manipulation does not work the same way in this game as in other versions of Tetris, leading to quite different strategies.

Quartet is a fairly basic run-and-gun platformer, with little in the way of objectives besides "kill the bosses" and "find the exit". Here, the author saves 30 seconds over the previous publication with more precise control and planning, which allows for very aggressive boss fights.

One of the best (and best known) shooters of the 16-bit era, Contra 3: The Alien Wars forgoes any semblance of plot devices in favor of good old fashioned shooting and platforming with some tough as nails bosses, especially in this, the hardest mode.

Apparently not happy with an already amazing movie, Cpadolf felt the need to go on yet another black op, optimizing his distortions of space and time on the way to a 173 frame improvement.

This movie uses a 'warping' glitch to complete the game. There is also the 2-player version, which does not.

Trying to strike a compromise with peace activists, the guy who destroys the world bare-chested has been ordered to stop an alien invasion while taking as few lives as possible. As such, this run completes Contra 3 while only destroying enemies and obstacles if they prevent advancement. This requires much more careful dodging than the other run that avoids the warp glitch does.

Our hero takes the dodging one step further by adding the limitation that he cannot shoot enemy projectiles. However, frustrated by the lack of carnage and by the political pressure, our hero lets off steam sometimes by shooting the scenery and doing entertaining dances and poses.

This run improves the previous publication by 25.40 seconds.

This is a game based on the completely "unique" concept of an evil boss trying to take over/destroy/do whatever with the world, and despite the Earth being filled with about 7 billion occupants, you are the only one who can stop it.

At first glance it may seem odd that, although the game is two player, only one player is used, and that's Player 2. Player 2 was chosen because her aerial attack gives an enormous speed boost. It is also one of the few attacks in video games that operates on frame precision, so smashing out a 30Hz rapid-fire on the controller will lay the beatdown pretty quickly.

That, combined with the fact that half the enemies in this game are of the standard "walk around and shoot" variety, allow the heroine to zip through the game with total reckless abandon. Few games allow a TASer to do that, so this is a rare opportunity indeed.

The game is eerily similar to Mega Man 7 and Mega Man X. It even has pick-throwing miners.

This is a 24 second improvement over the previous movie by the use of some new tricks. These are explained in the author's comments.

Important: This movie requires Snes9x 1.43 v15.3 or earlier. It desyncs on later versions.

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.

This movie plays the Japanese release of the game which has alternate level paths, contrary to the strictly linear PAL version.

Super Gussun Oyoyo is a puzzle game best described as a mixture of Lemmings and Tetris. Two treasure hunters named Gussun and Oyoyo are exploring a dungeon when an earthquake occurs, causing the dungeon to begin sinking. The player controls blocks akin to Tetris pieces, leading Gussun to the dungeon exit before it submerges completely.

This run starts from stage 21, the latest possible stage that the game allows one to start on.

Publisher's note: There is a glitch in the sound between stage 30 and 32 inclusive which is a result of the run itself, and not of the encoding.

Here you can see a revision of this game by nitsuja, 4:35.31 minutes faster the previous run by mazzeneko. The strategy used was changed radically, using Raphael instead ofDonatello and using dash moves more often.

The damage for every move was mapped out carefully by monitoring the internal values of the RAM, to be able to choose the best attack for every situation. Luck was manipulated to make some enemies appear in more convenient positions.

The Blues Brothers is a platforming game developed in 1993 by Titus, notorious for making the dreadful Superman 64. Luckily though, this game is actually half-decent. In it, one player can control either Jake or Elwood, or two players can control both in a cooperative fashion through 25 levels of platforming.

Following an argument between the two brothers, Jake carries out the mission in solo mode. The levels in a one-player run are different from the levels you play in a two-player run, and there are a few more of them.

In this action horror game, one girl must kill 9 of her neighbors in order to go on the shoe collecting spree of a lifetime. No shoes are safe in Zombies Ate My Neighbors!

This run is faster than the previous run of the same, "1 player", branch by 2:44.72 due to aggressive luck manipulation aiming for speed shoes drops.

However, this run also obsoletes the "2 players" branch, because of how similar their action is, while here the overall pace is much faster and the movements are optimized tighter, so it obsoletes the other run by entertainment value.

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.
