- Aims for maximum score
- Genre: Platform
C64anabalt is an official conversion of Canabalt for the Commodore 64 (in cartridge form). Canabalt is the game that defined the endless runner genre. The game controls consist of a single jump button to alter the height of the player's suit-clad character, who runs across a war-torn city at an ever increasing pace.

At the incredible speeds reached in this TAS, the building generator can bug out and fail to create sections of buildings. Author dwangoAC had to carefully avoid these bugs in order to successfully run the maximum distance.

There are two different versions of this port. This movie uses the Encore build, which includes a faithful port of the original soundtrack to the C64's SID sound chip.

Choplifter is a game developed by Dan Gorlin and was released by Brøderbund in 1982 for multiple systems. It has the distinction of being one of only a few games originally made for home computers before being ported to an arcade machine.

In this game, you are an ace helicopter pilot tasked with rescuing prisoners of war from enemy camps and returning them to the home base. There are a total of 64 POWs that need saving, but you can only carry 16 at a time.

DrD2k9 rescues all POWs in record time.

- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Action
Your task in Frogger is to guide a frog across a treacherous road and river, and to safety at the top of the screen. Both these sections are fraught with a variety of hazards, each of which will kill the frog and cost you a life if contact is made.

There are two ports of this game on the Commodore 64: the Parker Brothers port and the Sierra port. DrD2k9 plays through the former in record time.

Jungle Hunt is a right-to-left side-scrolling arcade game produced and released by Taito in 1982. Jungle Hunt is one of the first video games to use parallax scrolling. The player controls an unnamed explorer, sporting a pith helmet and safari suit, attempting to rescue his girl from a tribe of cannibals by swinging from vine to vine, swimming a crocodile-infested river, and avoiding rolling rocks.

DrD2k9 swings, swims, jumps, and ducks his way through the jungle to rescue his girl in record time.

Unlike the predecessor movie, this run is made using the NTSC settings. The resulting time is shorter due to faster gameplay speed, even though this run is 14 frames longer, because of the RNG difference.

- Genre: Platform
The Great Giana Sisters is a platform game developed by Time Warp Productions and released in 1987. It's known for its controversial similarities to Nintendo's Super Mario Bros, eventually leading to its removal from store shelves. Although there are plenty of similarities in terms of level design between the two games (with the first level being practically identical), the controls differ greatly compared to Super Mario Bros.


Publisher's Note: Both the Downloadables and YouTube Encode modifies the video of the Commodore 64's bootup to prevent any epileptic seizures.
