- Genre: Adventure
As a covered wagon party of pioneers, you head out west from Independence, Missouri to the Willamette River and valley in Oregon. You first must stock up on provisions, and then, while travelling, make decisions such as when to rest, how much food to eat, etc. The Oregon Trail incorporates simulation elements and planning ahead, along with discovery and adventure, as well as mini-game-like activities (hunting and floating down the Dalles River).

Thanks to good management of the resources, adelikat manages to reach the Willamette River and valley in 8 minutes and 24.63 seconds.

This is the first ever Apple ][ publication on this site.

Award - Funny TAS of 2015
Tony Hawk's Underground 2 is the sixth installment in Neversoft's Tony Hawk's series and is the sequel to Underground. The gameplay in Underground 2 is similar to that of previous Tony Hawk games: the player skates around in a 3D environment modeled after various cities and attempts to complete various goals. Most goals involve skating on or over various objects or performing combos. Scores are calculated by adding the sum of the point value of each trick strung together in a combo and then multiplying by the number of tricks in the combo.

In this run, Fog skates, grinds, and flies through the air to complete this game as fast as possible on the easiest difficulty using multiple glitches along the way. For more information on the tricks and glitches used in this run, check out the submission text.

Midnight Resistance (1990) was a rather lackluster attempt at making a Contra-esque game, ported later to Sega Genesis. Still, it manages to preserve some of the genre's core values, and therefore is well suited for a TAS.

Selected quotes from the author:
Story: an evil enemy kidnaps the hero's family. The hero is pleased, as this gives him a reason to wear a tight sleeveless shirt and blow up stuff with big guns.

Pocket Monster II is an unlicensed game made by DVS Electronic Co. for the Sega Genesis. It stars Pikachu as he fights other Pocket Monsters, or Pokémon, across four stages using Poké Balls and melee attacks. While some of the graphics are taken from other games, the music tracks are original and adapted from the Pokémon TV show's songs.

The author, dekutony, abuses several minor glitches throughout the run to beat the game in under four minutes.

Duke Nukem 64 (1997) is a classic PC shooter ported to Nintendo 64 — unfortunately, in a heavily censored state, and without much concern for the game's performance.

As such, the movie is played on the easiest level in an attempt to reduce the framerate drop issues arising from big amounts of enemies shooting at Duke. However, the sheer speed the player is blasting through levels will likely confuse you regardless — we recommend reading the author's comments to understand all the tricks he used.

Circus Charlie is a simple game that most people probably know from pirate multigame carts. The first stages are easy for anyone even on real NES, but stage 3 is already quite challenging.

This movie plays "1 player game A" (easy). Ironically, this is MORE challenging for tool-assisted gameplay.

Stage times: 3440, 3560, 3750, 3880, 4280.

Yet another "perfect" movie beaten. This time by 12 frames.

Award - Funny TAS of 2007
River City Ransom is a goofy game that deserves a goofy TAS. This movie showcases cool tricks and some glitches that don't necessarily result in the fastest completion. We also have a movie which aims for speed.

Selected Quote from the authors:

We looked at previous submissions and demonstrations of this game and tried to include the most entertaining parts of what was available, and add in a few ideas of our own along the way. Hopefully you'll get a kick out of it.

- One player in a multiplayer game

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.

A glitch that is abused often in this run, pressing Left and Right at the same time, causes the player character to do all sorts of crazy things and usually lose all of his power. This is done to reduce lag during running segments and abuse collision detection.

This run obsoletes the previous one by nearly a minute due to much more optimization of boss fights and some new tricks. Weapons are also used more, so expect to see some chains and trash cans!

We also have an alternate version of this run which plays on hard difficulty. The only difference between difficulty levels is enemy hit points, which is normally grounds for playing on the easiest possible difficulty (to improve speed and entertainment).

Cyborg 009 is based on the manga and anime of the same name, which began a long time ago. There are eight characters that you can use, but one of them is set and you can only choose two others for each mission.

The run uses 008 (Pyunma) and 005 (Geronimo) most of the time. 008 can jump forward quickly and swim in water, while 005 does heavy damage to bosses. Various power-ups are collected to level-up 009 (Joe) due to an event near the end of the game.

The run uses the easiest difficulty due to the final boss taking less time to beat.

If you play this game, it is recommended to level-up 009 first, and a lot.

Eek! The Cat is a game based on the old cartoon series of the same name. Your goal is to kick and shove an NPC to the exit of each level while avoiding enemies and obstacles, and all to the tune of some sweet music.

This game was originally planned to be released as Sleepwalker, this is why it's so dark (it happens at night) and has this specific gameplay of pushing the sleepwalking people to where they belong.

This is an improvement of 434 frames over the previous movie by WarHippy.

In addition to this run, there are also runs of the first and second games in the series: Super Star Wars and Super Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.

Yoshi's Safari is one of the few SNES titles that supports the Super Scope accessory. Bowser and his Koopalings have invaded Jewelry Land and stolen all of the kingdom's precious jewels. Armed with the Scope, Mario rides Yoshi to find Bowser and recover the jewels.

As this is a lightgun game, this run basically shoots everything in sight.

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.
