Princess Rescue is a homebrew game that's inspired by the Super Mario series, even following the same general storyline (namely a princess gets kidnapped by a big evil spiked turtle). It is up to a lookalike of a famous plumber to save her from its clutches.

Mothrayas rescues the princess in record time.

- Uses death to save time
- Genre: Shooter
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.

Before reminiscing about a man I knew when I was young, before rescuing a hero named Joe, there were games where you played as Joe himself! The Bionic Commando arcade game, sequel to Commando, introduces the first hero in a platform game who couldn't even jump, which spawned many sequels.

Thanks to collecting an item that increases the speed of the bionic arm quite a bit, abusing death to skip the elevator in Mission 4 and better overall optimisation, RobynS improves the previous publication by 38.85 seconds.

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.

sugarfoot improves his previous TAS by 33.78 seconds, mainly thanks to improved combo sequences. Please read the author's comments for more details.

We also have TASes of the NES port and the unlicensed Genesis port.

Dragon Unit (also known as Castle of Dragon) is a side-scrolling action-adventure game in which Geraden must hack and slash his way through the kingdom and destroy legions on Darklarza's forces. Initially equipped with a sword and a shield, plus the armor on his back, Geraden can upgrade to more powerful offensive and defensive options, as well as obtain various powerful magic spells.

While the speed boost trick can't be done when playing with two players, mamuuuut still keeps things interesting with a variety of two-player antics.

We also have a run of this game using a single player.

Yippie-ki-yay!

In Spinmaster, known in Japan as Miracle Adventure (ミラクルアドベンチャー), you play as Johnny and Tom, two treasure seekers. They have to save Johnny's girlfriend and gather map pieces in order to find the biggest treasure in the world! 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.

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.

BrunoVisnadi improves the previous run by 7.70 seconds, thanks to a new trick and faster routes.

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.

Bio Menace is a 2D, side-scrolling, platform game developed and published by Apogee Software for DOS.

The CIA has learned that gigantic mutants are wreaking havoc in Metro City and their sources say that a scientist calling himself Dr. Mangle is responsible. Snake Logan, the CIA's top secret agent, is sent on a dangerous recon mission, only to have his plane shot down, forcing Snake to walk the streets and kill mutants.

In this run, slamo takes control of Snake as he blasts through mutants and monsters, letting nothing (not even death) slow down his mission.

Commander Keen 5: The Armageddon Machine (1991) is a part of the popular Commander Keen saga, developed by id Software. It is a direct continuation of the previous episode of Goodbye Galaxy, in which Commander Keen (Billy Blaze) has learned from the Oracle of Gnosticus IV that the evil Shikadi plan to blow up the galaxy with their doomsday device, the Omegamatic (It slices! It dices! It causes a 100,000 light year-diameter quantum explosion!). Naturally, he sets out to sabotage the machine and stop the Shikadi.

Using a series of glitches, Keen completes only four stages to get to the end game, only one of which takes any significant length of time, and destroys the Quantum Explosion Dynamo, the core of the Omegamatic in the impossibly short time of 2:02. In the process, he manages to inadvertently prevent the Shikadi from accomplishing their escape (though you have to watch the ending very closely to figure out that this has happened here).

Initially published as a commercial game between Invasion of the Vorticons and Goodbye, Galaxy! in 1991, Commander Keen: Keen Dreams was largely overlooked until it saw a shareware release in late 1992 almost a year after Goodbye, Galaxy!. It is informally known as Keen 3.5 among fans.

In Keen Dreams, Commander Keen goes to sleep and finds himself in the land of Tuberia, where he discovers that Earth children are being trapped in their sleep to work as slaves for the evil King Boobus Tuber. Out of ammo and lacking his trusty pogo stick, Keen must resort to scavenging Flower Power and Boobus Bombs from the local flora in order to combat the tuberian threat.

slamo improves his previous TAS by 24.98 seconds (~21.22 seconds on RTA timing), thanks to a new route, ditching two long levels (Melon Mines and Spud City) in favor of 4 shorter levels on the southern part of the overworld.

Award - Computer TAS of 2013
Jetpack is a platformer game (now freeware), featuring a man equipped with a jetpack which he uses for flying (if it has fuel, otherwise he can jump) and a phase shifter for temporarily getting rid of troublesome bricks. His goal is to collect all the green gems in 100 devilish stages and avoid hordes of enemies.

In this extremely carefully planned run, slamo completes the game in 32 minutes and 22 seconds with large heaps of luck manipulation and glitch abuse. A normal player would barely get through the first 10 levels in that amount of time.

Prepare to be blown away watching large complex levels completed in under 20 seconds on average. Enjoy seeing extremely tight movement with enemies all around without getting hit, or getting hit yet somehow managing to complete the level anyway. Be dazzled as a dozen teleporters are all simultaneously manipulated to keep enemies away from our hero. Be sure not to fall off your seat when you see Jetman passing through spikes unharmed or completing levels with just the right amount of fuel, and narrowly avoiding certain doom from becoming trapped in reappearing walls.

Practically every aspect of the game was carefully analyzed and thoroughly documented by our users, slamo, Svimmer, Ilari, Nach, creaothceann, and hegyak for the creation of this run. This includes full level maps, with secrets in plain view.


Since the action is so fast paced, there's an alternate YouTube encode at 43% speed, and alternate download encodes at 50% and 75% speeds. It is recommended to watch this run at a slower speed to fully appreciate the timing and many of the tricks performed.

Jill of the Jungle: Volume I - Jill of the Jungle is the first episode of a shareware series. It is a platform game where the player takes the role of the titular character, an Amazon woman who takes the not-so-typical role of a monster-slaying, leather-wearing warrior. Jill's most distinguishing ability is morphing into various creatures, such as a bird, a fish, and others, which allow her to explore specific areas. Levels often feature platform structures that must be navigated precisely, as well as keys and gems that must be found in order to advance.

Contra 4 (2007) is largely a combined remake of the early NES and SNES Contra titles, featuring remixed music and vastly improved visuals utilizing both screens of the DS as if they were one contiguous screen.

Watch Bill Rizer embark on a new colorful adventure in the shirtless land, this time making even less sense than ever before. To quote the game's ending: Whatever the truth may have been, it was lost to time as the invaders became a mere footnote in the pages of history. A footnote which read: they sure blew up good.

Amen.

"Whoa, didn't see that coming!"

Johnny Test is a game based on the TV cartoon series of the same name. In the game, Johnny tampers with Susan and Mary's "Real Life Simulator" machine, inadvertently allowing Wacko access to the machine, who uses it to turn the town of Porkbelly into a Medieval city. If that weren't enough, Brain Freezer is holding the twins' beloved Gil hostage. Johnny and Dukey will push all the limits with numerous laboratory gadgets trying to fix this experiment gone wrong. They will have to break some rules in order to stop the bad guys and save Porkbelly – all before his parents find out.

Author dekutony runs through the game, taking advantage of multiple powerups and programming errors to beat it in 19 minutes and 55.68 seconds.

Mega Man ZX Advent is the second game in the Mega Man ZX series. What's so different between the classic series and ZX Advent? First, you get to choose between a male (Grey) and a female (Ashe) character. Then, instead of stealing weapons from the bosses, the player steals the boss itself! Instead of switching between weapons, the player switches between forms using the Biometal Model A. Finally, the player has less freedom to pick the stages of his choice.

In this run, hellagels and red-crowned-crane collect all secret disks, life ups, BM upgrades and sub tanks, achieving a 100% completion rate.

The classic Metal Slug series comes to the DS with Metal Slug 7. Although there is only one player this time, this version is notable for allowing the player to keep two weapons and switch freely between them. Also, each player has a special advantage compared to the others: for instance, Eri can use more grenades, whereas Tarma does more damage while using a Metal Slug.

This run uses Eri and Tarma, just like mtvf1's first Eri/Tarma run. It improves zk547's deathless run by 1:08.09, despite having to use two continues to switch between Eri and Tarma.

Also check out the runs of other Metal Slug games such as Metal Slug, Metal Slug X, Metal Slug 3, Metal Slug 4, Metal Slug 5 and Metal Slug Advance.

Super Mario 64 DS is a remake of Super Mario 64 for the Nintendo DS, released in 2004 along with the system. It features improved graphics, new levels and playable characters, and most importantly in this case, a different "polish".

More importantly, it features different glitches than those featured in the runs of the original SM64.

This run improves the predecessor movie by 39.71 seconds.

For the out-of-bounds parts, where no textures are normally loaded, the author provided a hacked encode that shows the textures for better comprehension.

Also note that this movie is about 42 seconds longer than the previous movie. This is due to the inaccurate (shorter) FDS load times emulated by famtasia.

Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge is an isometric platformer released by Rare in 2003. It is an "interquel" to the original two N64 games, taking place while Gruntilda is trapped under the boulder in Spiral Mountain. Klungo creates a Mecha-Grunty suit for Grunty's soul to control, and she kidnaps Kazooie, travelling back in time 20 years (somehow) to keep Banjo and Kazooie from ever meeting! Mumbo sends Banjo back in time as well (somehow) to rescue his friend and destroy Mecha-Grunty, with the help of Bottles's ancestor, Bozzeye.

Blazephlozard collects the 50 Jiggies necessary to open the barrier to Winkybunion Tower and defeat Mecha-Grunty in less than 43 and a half minutes.

The Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow main quest TAS has become even more glitched. Using an obscure out-of-room travel technique involving in-game saving and subsequent dying, klmz plows through the game with the confident pace of a cold-blooded killing machine in a little under seven minutes — a whole 31.72 seconds faster than the previous movie by the same author!

We recommend reading the author's comments for more information on the death warp glitch and other time-saving techniques used to make this improvement happen.

If you would like to see more of the game, we also have a run that does not make use of major warp glitches, as well as a run that collects every soul in the game.

Lady Sia is a platform game with action-adventure elements made by RFX Interactive for the Game Boy Advance. It was published by TDK Mediactive, released in the USA on October 15, 2001, and released in Europe on October 19, 2001.

The game takes place in a fantasy world where the player assumes the role of the Xena-esque warrior princess, Lady Sia. It is her task to defeat the T'soas, a race of anthropomorphs created by the evil warlock Onimen who has declared war on the other realms. Her quest leads her through four different realms, the last one being the home continent of the T'soas themselves...

Or, it would go through four realms, but klmz skips about half of the game with a glitch in the walrus boss. For more details, read the submission comments.

Mario Party Advance follows a different format than the main games, since only a single person can play without connecting to another GBA. In this game, the player moves around the game board, visiting characters, running quests, and playing minigames. Many of the non-player characters are from classic Nintendo 64 games like Super Mario 64, Mario Party, and Paper Mario.

In order to beat the game as fast as possible, Nacho manipulates luck to achieve favorable rolls. Careful Mushroom management also allows him to intentionally lose some minigames when it would be faster than beating them.

Pokémon: Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald form the third generation of Pokémon, after Pokémon: Gold and Silver. Noticeable differences include the graphics and interface, Pokémon abilities, and running shoes that allow the player to move around much faster in the overworld before getting the bike.

In this movie, GoddessMaria applies her experience with TASing the game's alternate modes to a full run, finishing in under an hour and twenty minutes using lots of luck manipulation. At some point, her trainer gets fed up with all these slow battles, flies to the end, and storms the Elite Four throwing bad eggs at anyone who wants a fight.


Note: To play the vbm, you need to have Real Time Clock on and Flash 128k as the Save Type. Real Time Clock is for sync, while Flash 128k is to prevent the game from displaying a white screen.

Everyone's favourite gymnastic winner is back, and this time, he's sparing no expense to make sure the evil Vizier's reign of sand-based terror is stopped once and for all. Watch as our hero slaughters the Vizier's entire army, robs him of his precious metal, confiscates his valuable medical resources and steals all his ancient scrolls without even stamping his library card.

In this run, theenglishman achieves a self-defined full completion, which is everything you can acquire or do in the game without the use of a Nintendo GameCube/Game Boy Advance link cable. In the case of this game, it boils down to:

  • Kill all 75 Sand Persians, which makes the Prince reach max stats (Level 30, 150 HP, 115 Attack, 90 Defence)
  • Acquire all available consumables (9 Life Potions, 9 Sands of Time, 5 Antidotes - consumables can be used at any time)

  • Collect all tutorial Scrolls
  • Reassemble all Medals and lower all the Medal Gates
  • Press the three GameCube switches

Everyone’s favorite gymnastics winner is back in this remake of the classic console game. This time the Prince of Persia accidentally unleashes the Sands of Time, turning everyone except him, an evil Vizier and a mysterious girl named Farah into zombies. The Sands also gave the Prince a few new unexpected powers, like the ability to walk through walls and repeatedly jump underneath platforms.

This run features an impressive improvement of 6 minutes over the preceding movie.

Sabrina the Teenage Witch: Potion Commotion was released for the GBA by Ubisoft in 2002. It is based on the sitcom, which is itself based on the Archie Comics spinoff series of the same name (which began in 1962). In the game's plot, several dramatic things happen with Hilda and Zelda (characters that never show up in gameplay) messing up their spells and making some sort of catastrophe that Sabrina has to fix, each catastrophe defining one of the four worlds. Along the way, Sabrina collects ingredients, which are later mixed up in a potion mini-game at the end of each world, and unlocks spells, which she can use to defeat enemies, grow vines, and so on.

Ready Steady Yeti runs through the game in record time, taking high advantage of the game's physics. The ceiling glitch used throughout the run is especially notable, since it is used to skip large portions of many of the levels.

Eggman has broken the world into seven parts, now the player must find the seven Chaos Emeralds to restore the world.

Sonic Advance 3 is a Sonic game with a twist: the player can play with a friend in co-op mode or one of many multi-player modes like ring race. The game contains features from Sonic Advance and Sonic Advance 2, but with more options like choosing from 2 characters in story mode (a leading and a following character).

Spyro: Attack of the Rhynocs, known as Spyro Adventure in Europe, is an isometric platform game in the Spyro the Dragon series. One of the Professor's inventions has inadvertently torn a large hole in the fabric of space and time, creating a portal between the Rhynoc Lands and the Dragon Realms. Naturally, Ripto takes full advantage of this by sending his armies of rhynocs through the portal to wreak havoc. Spyro must find somehow find a way to close the portal before Ripto succeeds in taking over the Dragon Realms.

In this run, EgixBacon zips through the game, using precision and a few tricks to take down Ripto in a little under 17 minutes. He also improves his previous run by over two minutes through new sequence breaks and optimizations.

In this movie the author abuses many glitches to take massive shortcuts in the game (including skipping an entire level). He also intentionally kills off the character several times in order to avoid backtracking.

RoboCop for the GBC is a top-down shooter made by Mirage Interactive and Titus. The game itself consists of large maze levels and the slow movement pace of RoboCop. The difficulty in this game can be very obnoxious.

In this run, the author makes usage of a simple L+R glitch which doubles RoboCop's speed without affecting camera speed if three directions at once are pressed. In addition to this, it even allows him to warp to the next screen immediately when he catches up to the edge of the camera view while performing this glitch, and if there is an adjacent room to the direction where he's going. This allows him to get through most troublesome walls. The author provides detailed comments which help understanding what is going on.

This is the second and last true Mario game for the original Game Boy. It has unique power ups like carrots and bubbles and allows the player to go through each of the worlds in any order. It also features the first appearance of Wario, who would become a staple character for Nintendo.
This is a massive 2 minute and 40 second improvement over the previous movie. The improvements in this movie were largely due to two new tricks: the pixel trick and the pipe glitch. Both saved enormous amounts of time during the run. Details on the improvements can be found in the author's submission text.

Originally meant as a sequel to the Super Mario Land games, Wario Land eventually proved popular enough in its own right to launch its own series.

Wario, having been kicked out of Mario's castle in his first appearance, decides, in his eternal greed, to search for a statue stolen by the nefarious Captain Syrup and the Black Sugar Gang. This would normally involve questing for hidden treasures and collecting as many coins as he can possibly amass along the way.

Here, however, Wario decides this isn't worth his time and proceeds as quickly as possible towards the final confrontation — going so far as to skip entire levels and otherwise make a mockery of the game engine.

This movie is a 2:11.01 improvement over the previous movie through better optimization.

Disney's Extreme Skate Adventure is a skateboarding game released in 2003, using the same engine as Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4. The game allows you to skate as characters from Toy Story, Tarzan, and The Lion King. The gameplay is similar to that of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4, but containing simplified controls and limited tricks. There are three main modes of the game, Adventure Mode, Free Skate, and Versus. Unlike regular Tony Hawk's Pro Skater games, there is no actual story mode to complete. Instead, there are goals scattered across every level.

In this run, Fog unlocks every level and every skater as fast as possible.

Pac-Man World 2 is a 3D platformer for the Nintendo Gamecube. Pac-Man has 2 unique movement options: butt-bouncing (ground pound) and rev-rolling (spindash). The goal is simple, just make it to the end of each stage, and kill each boss at the end of the world.

The TAS differs from RTA runs in that minute details in the level geometry are abused using the rev-roll. This allows many strategies to be shown off that aren't viable otherwise.

Note: Due to an emulator bug the intro and outro videos look jittery.

In the highly anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed Super Mario 64, Mario and Peach are taking a much-deserved vacation from the so often troublesome Mushroom Kingdom. Only, they quickly find out that there is trouble amuck at their island destination. A culprit has coated the world with goop and paint. Even worse, according to the locals he just happens to look like Mario. Mistaken for the true offender, Mario's would-be vacation instead turns out to be another day on the job as he is convicted of the villain's crimes and is ordered to clean up the world with a water-spewing device that straps to his back, which just happens to add a whole new layer of depth to the usual platforming action.

Here, zelpikukirby & Goldfire use tools to show just how nimble the famed plumber can be. Focusing on revenge rather than reparation, they bring the perpetrator to justice after collecting only 43 shine sprites, leaving plenty of time for Mario and his friends to indulge in the rest and relaxation they originally set out to enjoy.


Note: This run is known to have a sync dependent on both hardware, and graphic settings. If you are having trouble playing back the emulator movie (DTM file), we recommend you watch one of the pre-made encodes instead.

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.

Tony Hawk's Underground is a skateboarding-adventure video game published by Activision in 2003, the fifth entry in the Tony Hawk series.

Underground is built upon the skateboarding formula of previous Tony Hawk's games: the player explores levels and completes goals while performing tricks. The game features a new focus on customization; the player, instead of selecting a professional skater, creates a custom character.

Underground adds the ability for players to dismount their boards and explore on foot. The plot follows the player character and his or her friend Eric Sparrow as the two become well-known professionals and grow apart.

In this run, The Packle improves upon the previous publication by over three and a half minutes thanks to a new glitch involving custom tricks which eliminates most of the RNG this game has to offer.

Aero the Acrobat 2 is the sequel to Aero the Acrobat. This game abandons the quest-based gameplay of the first game and instead goes for straight platformer levels. They also added a few new moves to Aero's arsenal.

According to the story, after Aero defeated Ektor the evil industrialist clown in the previous game, he decides to wander around Ektor's evil museum. Meanwhile Zero the Kamikaze squirrel rescues Ektor using his flying machine. While wandering the museum, Aero happens across a strange portal, which pulls him toward a far away past. Turns out the portal was a trap set by Ektor.

Only one village still remains independent, thanks to the incredible powers of its two great warriors, Asterix and Obelix. In the game, they must first of all liberate the village Orvio and rescue their friend Dogmatix.

The player can play as either Asterix or Obelix. They make their way through platform levels, fighting enemies by punching them, and jumping to access higher ares or to avoid falling down. There are also some items that the player can collect, such as bombs, with which the player can overcome obstacles and advance in the game.

The game was originally released for Arcade machines by Taito in 1989, later ported to home video game consoles such as the TurboGrafx-16 in 1991, and the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis in 1992.

This movie here is one that makes little to no sense to someone who isn't familiar with the game. The main character can move very fast and the dark graphics don't help in figuring out what's going on. There is a lot more going on in this movie than meets the eye. For example, the player uses a secret warp involving combining the alchemy potions that are scattered throughout the levels.

This improves the previous run of the game by 29.5 seconds thanks to a route change.

NOTE: Don't be fooled by the fake credits after the final level. The game is not quite over yet.

Award - Sega TAS of 2017
A typical Disney game featuring all the characters from the movie.

This is an improvement of 14.6 seconds over the previous movie thanks to better optimization, better use of resources and better speed control around corners.

Based on the 1995 Disney Pixar movie of the same name, this game tells the story of a toy cowboy named 'Woody' and his jealousy over his owner's new toy, a 'Buzz Lightyear' figurine. Like its movie counterpart, this game features revolutionary graphics for its era and (for the most part) a unique musical score. The game also has a few different modes of play: most stages work like standard platformers, though there are racing stages and even a maze-exploration stage.

Jimmie1717 & EZGames69 improve the previous TAS by 4.38 seconds.

In this game, the Earth has been nearly destroyed by the genetic and biological weapons unleashed during World War 3. Radiation and strange viruses have combined to physically transform the human population into vile, disgusting mutants. However, a scientist named Dr. Kildare, who aims to reclaim mankind's lost genetic heritage, returns six people to normal to fight for humanity as the Ex-Mutants. Your job, as one of the Ex-Mutants, is to rescue the other Ex-Mutants and find power cells for Dr. Kildare.

Gain Ground is a game about robots killing cavemen and cavemen killing robots; or at least that's what it looks like. Don't worry too much about the plot. It's a fast paced overhead run-and-gun with characters and enemies from 5 different time periods. Originally an arcade game, this Genesis port has 10 extra levels in it.

In this TAS, both player characters are controlled and shots are precisely placed to defeat every enemy in every level at blinding speed. Many precise tricks are used; details and stage-by-stage rundowns are available in the author's comments.

Gods is a game about someone who wants to become a god and gain immortality. This is a delicate and paradoxical issue, because temporal immortality can be bought at just about every shop in this game, but the hero still dies numerous times.

Another fun aspect is bomb-jumping, which allows both higher jumps and traveling vertically through walls. Almost the whole 2nd half of the game is skipped with this trick! However, it is not verified whether this trick will work on an actual console.

This is the author's latest version, improved by another 132 frames.

In this run, he grabs the Grail so fast you don't even see it coming — in fact the sequence in which the grail is chosen goes by before the screen finishes being drawn, so you don't even get to see that.

Enemy spies have been sent to buy military weapon technologies from scientists all around the world. Young Indiana Jones has been recruited to infiltrate the meeting locations and prevent the spies from leaving alive.

But Indy doesn't care about the deals and forgets to kill the spies other than the one in England, perhaps thinking, "What the heck, I climbed all the way up to the top of Big Ben; may as well actually defeat the spy this time."

Watch Young Indy blaze through this otherwise uninspiring game with unconventional techniques such as using gear wheels to suddenly appear on another floor and suiciding to avoid fighting bosses.

James Bond 007: The Duel is a sidescrolling platformer featuring a storyline that is not based on a James Bond film. A mad professor has commandeered a Caribbean satellite launch center and is planning to use its technology to take over the world, and only 007 can stop him!

The game requires precision in jumping, as Bond will easily die if he falls from high places. Bond's gun also needs to be reloaded on occasion and ammo needs to be conserved. Besides shooting the bad guys in his way, Bond has to find all of the female hostages and set bombs in each base in order to proceed.

Archanfel improves the previous run by 2 minutes and 21.13 seconds thanks to better optimization and new tricks like dying to save time and using minor bullet damage to avoid lethal falling damage from great heights.

In his second adventure, James Pond must retrieve the toys Dr. Maybe has stolen. Pond has been armed with an Inspector Gadget-style stretch device, which he can use to view higher areas or claw onto ceilings so as to slide across them.

If you noticed the pun in the title, it may not come as a surprise that the game's title screen music is an upbeat rendition of the RoboCop title theme.

Archanfel defeats the nefarious Dr. Maybe and retrieves Santa's presents in 24 minutes and 20.46 seconds.

We also have a run of James Pond 3: Operation Starfish.

Landstalker is a challenging adventure RPG developed by Climax Entertainment (who also helped develop the Sega Shining series). You play as an adventure-seeking treasure hunter named Nigel, an elf who's remarkably young-looking for his age (88!). After completing his latest bounty, he runs into a wood nymph named Friday who's being pursued over her alleged knowledge of the whereabouts of King Nole's treasures. After helping her evade her pursuers, the two team up as they set off for Mercator Island in search of the fabled fortune.

Are King Nole's treasures truly close by? Are they ripe for the taking, or still jealously guarded to this day...?

In ars4326's run, 100% completion is based on RTA strats and is defined as follows:

  • Collect all Life Stock (minus the shop in Kazalt)
  • Obtain all equipment
  • Collect all unique/key items
  • Complete all side quests
  • Activate all teleport trees

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.

In this installment of the Turrican series, the evil force known as "The Machine" has once again come to bring destruction in order to take over the galaxy. Once again, Bren McGuire is the only one who can save the galaxy from evil!

This game was released as Turrican III for the Amiga before Factor 5 got Data East to port it to the Genesis/Mega Drive.

Like most of the previous games in this series, the protagonist has limited rolling power and limited use of super bombs. This forces the author to use some strategic choices to conquer these stages quickly, including occasionally dying to replenish bombs.

One thing leads to another and he and the rest of his party eventually find themselves fighting the root of all evil.

Even if killing the root of all evil would end everyone's problems, the team decides to take a few side jobs. As a result, they become even stronger and do things that would be impossible in a regular speedrun.

RoboCop versus The Terminator (1993) is based on a comic book that is a typical example of two popular but completely unrelated fiction universes merged into one. Such a process usually results in ruined timeline coherence for either, and this game is no exception.

As a result, we get a pretty wild mishmash of RoboCop's and Terminator's backstories in a silly plot accompanied by equally silly gameplay. This includes seemingly inescapable bullet sprays, leotard-clad baddies, exploding heads, hidden 1-ups conveniently placed in molten lava, and so on. The sheer frustration RoboCop experiences from all this madness can only be vented by banging his head on a rock!
(You wish any of this was a joke, but it's actually all there.)

The Genesis version of this game is notable for the amount of gore and other PG-13 goodies, as well as for the ability to abuse death and other things that make it most suitable for a TAS.

Shinobi 3 is a high class platformer with amazing graphics and sound. You control the ninja Musashi, who in this update has many new moves and abilities. He begins the game armed with 0 shurikens, but apparently someone felt the need to leave some conveniently in his way to use.

The author shows an extremely entertaining route featuring abuse of the Jump kick move, using wallkicks to fly up sheer cliffs, and even sacrificing lives to smash bosses.

During autoscroll sections Dammit is sure to entertain you by insulting the inept hordes of enemies, insulting the Genesis hardware itself in one special palette error case, and pulling some disappearing acts crazy enough to be worthy of a Ninja. He also made 2 minutes and 45 seconds of the previous run disappear in a cloud of smoke.

In this tool-assisted speedrun, very few cars are skitched and the other racers are ignored.

Another Sonic 3 & Knuckles TAS, but with Amy Rose this time. Unlike the three main characters, she wields a hammer as her weapon, and WST & marzojr use it to great effect in glitching through the game. For more details, see the run's comments.

Each second link or set of encodes uses a camhack, which forces the camera to focus on Amy while keeping the sprites on the foreground layer.

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.

We also have similar movies in Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Sonic the Hedgehog CD.

And also we have runs with Amy, Knuckles, Tails, Knuckles ring attack, Sonic 100%, Knuckles 100%, Competition mode and Sonic and Tails on NewGame+.


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's gone to plaid in the latest TAS by marzojr. It starts from a savestate to take advantage of Hyper Sonic from the beginning of the game. (For more details, see the note below and the run's comments.)

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

We also have similar runs with Sonic and Tails, Amy, Knuckles, Tails, Knuckles ring attack, Sonic 100%, Knuckles 100% and Competition mode.


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.

To download a savestate for this movie, use this link for Gens version 11a or this link for Gens version 11b.


Every second encode link leads to the camhacked version.

Squirrel King is a platform video game produced, without license from Sega, by the Taiwanese developer Gamtec for the Mega Drive. Gamtec is also responsible for the development of a number of other games, including many for the Gamate handheld system.

It appears to be loosely based upon Capcom's Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers video games for the Nintendo Entertainment System, sharing its gameplay mechanics, although it is not licensed by Disney. As in the aforementioned game, the main character must throw crates at the enemies in order to defeat them.

This game was eventually used as the basis for the unofficial Mega Drive Super Mario World game. Some of the levels in this game have their background music based on that of the Super NES video game Donkey Kong Country.

A typical streetfighting game which spawned the popular Streets of Rage trilogy. This game is rumored to have used the same engine as Golden Axe, which is why the A button summons magic (sort of) to damage all enemies on screen, instead of doing some sort of roundhouse, like almost all other beat'em ups.

Completed on the hardest difficulty.

Compared to the previous movie, this is over 10 minutes faster. Primarily due to the use of 2-players and a glitch that skips most of the last level.

Details can be found in the authors' comments.

The Immortal is a dungeon game with spells, goblins, and of course, countless traps of instant death. The story is quite humorous at times.

In this movie, the protagonist wizard uses various unorthodox methods for completing the game as fast as possible. He dies four times in the process, but that does not slow him down at all. In fact, dying is one of the tricks that makes this movie 1.5 minutes faster than its predecessor.

The Legend of Galahad is a side-scrolling adventure/platformer for the Sega Genesis. The game is a port of Leander for the Amiga, which was the first game developed by Travellers Tales. You play as Galahad on his quest to stop the Wicked Wiz of the East who has made off with Princess Leandra. Galahad must explore 21 levels in 3 different worlds in search of a hidden key in each level to progress, collecting coins to buy rune bombs, armor, and sword upgrades along the way.

The8bitbeast rushes through this game quickly, especially once the Tempest Blade upgrade is obtained. It is carefully managed to provide well-timed speedups in the player's movement, and it also leads to some zipping glitches. For more details, see the run'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.

This run improves the predecessor movie by 2.29 real-time seconds, and by 1:22.29 minutes of total in-level time. What makes the real-time difference so small is the larger time bonuses. To compensate for that, the author has made an encode that cuts out the bonus screen and the level title cards.

Banjo-Kazooie stars the bear-bird team of Banjo and Kazooie, who are searching for Jiggies, or Jigsaw puzzle pieces, to unlock doors and save Banjo's sister from a rhyming witch. Even though Banjo's name is first, Kazooie ends up doing most of the heavy lifting as new skills are developed.

In this run, Hyperresonance collects all 100 Jiggies hidden throughout the game.

This is an improvement of 24:40.71 over the previous movie. This was possible with overwhelming route changes (and much better route planning ahead), a myriad of new glitches and tricks, and much more optimized movement. This movie loses some time to loading zones on BizHawk vs Mupen (about 2 minutes), so the final time is not quite indicative of how good the run is. With console like loading zones, this would be a 1:57.

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

This run of Bomberman 64 achieves 100% status, which means earning 120 gold cards and all custom parts (alternate costumes for multiplayer modes). To acquire the prime "gold parts", players must obtain 120 gold cards within three hours of in-game time on hard mode.

Watch zvsp blast through the stages and collect the cards very quickly. Many bomb-stacking glitches are used to skip areas. Some cards require killing a certain minimum number of enemies, so you'll also get to see Bomberman blow up lots of enemies. Also, the player dies on purpose several times, for deathwarps and as shortcuts for some cards in hazardous conditions.

Also, see the any% run by Nahoc. For more Bomberman goodness, check out more Bomberman Movies.

Bismaru, who looks like Goemon's friend Ebisumaru dressed up as a nun, has swiped a freshly-invented Ghost Returning Machine! With it, he's using planning nothing less than world domination. All Ebisumaru wanted to do with it was meet his ancestor, James Dean! Help Goemon and his friends retrieve the Machine, and bust some ghosts on the way.

Mystical Ninja 2 reverts back to the traditional side-scrolling 2D platforming style of the SNES games. However, due to to the Nintendo 64's 3D capabilities, you'll encounter massive bosses and detailed worlds as you make your way through Japan. To attack, you can either hurl coins, or use each character's specific weapon, such as Goemon's trademark pipe. Two players can also play simultaneously and work together to beat foes, and you can even ride piggy-back onto your friend.

There are also towns to explore, where you chat with villagers and explore various shops and houses for information and clues. Goemon Impact, the giant singing robot wearing rollerskates, also makes a return as you battle enemy mechs from inside its cockpit in a first-person view.

Mario Party is a party video game featuring characters from the Mario franchise. It combines the mechanics of board games with more than 50 different minigames. The two modes of Mario Party are Adventure Mode, the standard mode of play with up to four players, and Minigame Island, a single player mode which forgoes the board game mechanics and has you win minigames to progress through the levels.

In this run, Senshin Ichii plays through Minigame Island mode and aims to complete the various minigames as fast as possible.

Super Mario 64: The Green Stars is a Super Mario 64 rom hack made by Kampel, released in August 2013. Also listed under "hacking" in the credits are Kaze, Frauber and VL-Tone.

The hack has a number of differences compared to the original game, such as an increased count of 130 stars, harder level design, and (as the title implies) green stars. The game is intended as a fan-made sequel to Super Mario 64, and is often praised for feeling very similar to the original game.

The trio of authors power through the hack with incredible speed, showcasing the various levels and landscapes, abusing the game's programming errors, and collecting all 130 stars in under 100 minutes.

Award - N64/Wii TAS of 2011Award - TAS of 2011
In the direct sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Link is back to being a lone boy without a fairy. One day, he is attacked by Skull Kid and his two fairies, Tatl and Tael, and they steal his ocarina. After pursuing Skull Kid, he is transformed into a Deku Scrub. Link continues pursuing Skull Kid all the way to the Clock Town (now with the help of Tatl the fairy, a more 'in yo face' version of Navi).

This TAS of the game is the result of three years of hard work and many restarts due to new discoveries. It features many never-before-seen tricks and glitches, and completes every dungeon without getting a single boss key. Everything is done out of order, in ways that will amaze the viewer and keep them on the edge of their seat the entire way through, including a whole new way of warping between the areas in the game's over-world, and a new method of traveling that makes even the longest stretches in the game seem tiny.

The author beats the game in two 3-day cycles (the previous route used three), and does so in a way that puts every past attempt at a 6-day challenge to shame.

Note: There are encodes of higher resolutions in the discussion thread. Also, if you know the cutscenes of this game by memory at this point and would rather watch an encode without them, it's your lucky day.

Award - Lucky TAS of 2017
In this TAS of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, the author aims to beat the game as quickly as possible while completing all dungeons, temples, and Ganon Trials. This goal is commonly referred to as "all temples", "all dungeons", or "MST (Medallions/Stones/Trials)".

This run has 22:15.68 minutes of improvements in gameplay over the previous TAS of its kind.

This movie contains a newer route and newer strategies which allow for a much faster completion than were possible when the last run was made. Several large glitches in the game are not used in the run, such as the Reverse Bottle Adventure or the Get Item Manipulation glitch. These are avoided because it would make the completion of any dungeon completely arbitrary; they can be seen in an old any% run.

This TAS is played on the Japanese version of the game. The reason for this is that the text is significantly faster than in the English version, which means that far less time (roughly 12 minutes) is spent waiting for text boxes and cut scenes to end before getting back to the action.

The author's notes explain in great detail many of the things done in this TAS which may be confusing to those who aren't familiar with Ocarina of Time speedrunning. Reading them is strongly advised.

Turok: Dinosaur Hunter is a critically acclaimed first-person action game released on the Nintendo 64 in 1997. It stars a hero of controversial descent, being a pre-Colombian Native American time-travelling warrior, referred to as Turok. As such, he must stop an evil entity known as The Campaigner from conquering the universe with a time-controlling artifact called the Chronoscepter (amazing, really). This also was the reason for stuffing the game full with anachronisms, so you'll see high-tech weapons and teleporters together with magic crossbows and dinosaurs.

Turok has been famous for being the first fog navigation simulator of its time. The omnipresent fog was included to obscure the low rendering distance that was used in order to increase performance on N64's hardware, but it also resulted in a somewhat claustrophobic feeling throughout the game. To further confuse the disoriented player, the majority of wall textures are nondescript and repetitive, making it easy to get lost at times.

Disclaimer: Due to various complaints of motion sickness caused by the strafe-running technique utilized, the viewer is encouraged to keep an airsickness bag handy in case of sudden nausea.

Amagon the Marine has crash-landed on a mysterious island in the South Pacific and must get to the rescue boat. In his way lie wild animals, dinosaurs, and aliens, all of which are likely to be endangered or extinct after their encounter with this gun-wielding man who can double his muscle mass to punch them into oblivion.

This is an improvement of nearly 26 seconds over the previous run by Tailz due to increased use of the Megagon form, lag reduction, improved boss fights, and a time-saving death in level 5-1.

This run exploits a programming error that allows the author to start playing from level 23. If you notice that there's nothing meaningful going on in the first minute of the movie, this is normal: the actual gameplay takes place only after triggering the "game over" screen.

See the author's comments for more information on this glitch.

This improves the author's previous movie by about 5 seconds.

Award - NES TAS of 2011
Battletoads (1991) is a futuristic beat 'em up known for its graphics and extreme difficulty. The story is that the sexy Dark Queen who wants to rule the universe has kidnapped Princess Angelica and a toad named Pimple. Two other toads, Rash and Zitz, attempt to rescue them and defeat the Dark Queen.

Maybe you thought Battletoads was a game full of amphibians, but it is actually full of bugs. Those beta testers really should have spent a little more time on this game...

In this run, feos and MESHUGGAH beat the previously fastest TAS of this game by 2:22.16, this time using 2 players instead of 1. You will laugh, you will cry, but most of all, you will wonder how in the world they broke this game so much. Do yourself a favor and read the authors' notes.

To see the game broken even further with the use of memory corruption, watch this run.

This run has two players and does not use warps.

As always, a bug on level 11 prevents player 2 from moving, so he gets a game over for that level. Player 1 plays level 11 alone and player 2 comes back for level 12. This is a bug in Battletoads itself.
