Spider-Man: Web of Fire, one of the last games to be released on the ill-fated 32X, follows our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man's battle with the evil forces of the neo-Nazi organization H.Y.D.R.A.

This is an improvement of 24.58 seconds over the previous run due primarily to a new glitch allowing Spidey to pass through walls.

You can see this movie played back on an actual Genesis here!

You're trapped! Your disabled nuclear submarine, resting perilously on an undersea ledge, has begun taking on water. With time running out for you and your crew – and with your onboard torpedoes shaken loose by an eerie current from deep under the sea floor – it's up to you alone whether you sink or swim!

The objective of Airlock is to retrieve the hatch keys and make your way to the next level before your compartment floods. But at the same time you must avoid the torpedoes that have been shaken loose and which, when they cross your path, rob you of precious time.

Alyosha improves the previous publication by 0.92 seconds, thanks to a newly discovered trick. Please read the author's comments for more details.

- Genre: Action
In Dodge 'Em (1980), you control a race car on a four lane track, and your goal is to collect all of the dots in order to earn points and advance to the next level. The race track is divided into four quadrants with a break in the lanes between them, and you can change lanes only within these breaks. A second car will travel in the opposite direction and try to get into your lane and crash you, so you need to make sure you switch to any lane it isn't in! You can travel at two different speeds (fast and slow) and even have a second player control the enemy car.

In this mesmerizing movie, yep2yel and morningpee speed around the track and beat the first round of the game in under 55 seconds. In doing so, they improve the previous movie by 11.28 seconds thanks to new routes and speed tricks.

The author, TASeditor, plays through the first five levels, after which there is no new content.

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.

- Heavy luck manipulation
- Genre: Action
Entirely unrelated to the TV series seaQuest DSV, Seaquest is a submarine combat game in which you control a water vessel and must pick up divers at different levels of depth while avoiding fish and enemy subs. While most of the game takes place underwater, you also must resurface for air from time to time so your air meter doesn't run out.

Like Tetris, the game ends when the score reaches the maximum 999999. This run by morningpee aims to reach this score as fast as possible.

morningpee accomplishes this through manipulating diver and enemy spawn points and using a glitch to freeze an enemy sub, allowing him to collide with it until the maximum score is reached. A lot of effort was put into figuring out the game's RNG and the optimal point to use the No-Despawn glitch; for more information, see the author's comments.

From Wikipedia:

The player(s) takes control of the DC Comics character Superman, who must repair the bridge destroyed by Lex Luthor, capture Luthor and his criminal underlings, enter a phonebooth to turn back into Clark Kent, then return to the Daily Planet in the shortest amount of time. To slow Superman's progress, Kryptonite has been released by Luthor. If hit by Kryptonite, Superman loses his abilities to capture criminals and fly. To regain them, he must find and kiss Lois Lane.

However, jlun2 uses a pause demo glitch to warp to the end. That is all.

Ninja Golf is an Atari 7800 video game which combines scrolling beat 'em up with golf simulation gameplay. Released in 1990, it later gained some renown for its outlandish subject matter and unique blend of gameplay styles.

The player starts each hole by aiming his ball and shooting it toward the green. He then runs toward the ball, in traditional sidescroller fashion, fighting various enemies encountered along the way. These enemies include other ninjas, gophers, birds, giant mutant frogs, sharks and more.

The enemies faced depends on the environment the ninja golfer is currently in. Sharks are encountered in water hazards and snakes in the sand traps. Ninjas are encountered in all the environments, including underwater.

In this run, adelikat sports, fights, and runs his way through multiple ninjas, sharks, and even dragons to complete possibly the strangest nine holes of golf.

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.

Ghosts 'n Goblins (1986) (known in Japanese as魔界村 makaimura, "Demon World Village") begins with a normal scene: a half-naked knight is on a date in a graveyard with a princess. Suddenly, a demon appears and abducts the princess! The knight quickly suits up and makes rapid progres (sic) through the demon world in an attempt to rescue his royal girlfriend.

This run of the original arcade game completes the first cycle in 6 minutes and 27.17 seconds. We also have a run of the NES port, but the game engines are so different that a comparison between the two times doesn't make any sense. Reaching the end credits requires a second run-through of the game which would be identical to the first run-through; this is omitted in this run.

Ghouls 'n Ghosts is the sequel to the brutally hard Ghosts 'n Goblins, and is brutally hard in its own right. This run is of the original coin-op version, which is most similar to the Genesis one. One of the major differences is less armor from chests.

Creative use of damage and picture perfect boss fights combine with some glitchy looking jumps as xipo takes on Lucifer's many demons. The game is completed twice (which is necessary to get the ending) and along the way we are treated to some fabulous Engrish and more information than necessary about the damsel in distress.

Golden Axe is an arcade beat em up from the late 80s. Along with its charming Conan the Barbarian style and hack and slash gameplay, it pioneered the beat em up "super" attack in the form of collectable magic. The game consists of 5 full size stages with 4 bonus stages in between for replenishing magic and HP. Gameplay consists of slicing bad guys up with weapons, riding mounts that breath fire, and casting magic spells.

Galedog slays the enemies throughout the game in record time.

For more hack-and-slaying action, please watch the movie done on the Genesis version.

This run improves upon its previous iteration not by time improvement, but by deciding to end the game faster rather than ending input faster; this results in a slightly longer input time, but skips out a big waiting period from the previous run.

Osman is a arcade game in the spirit of Strider. It's a very obscure and underrated arcade game, which didn't see much of the light of day, thanks to various issues with the hardware... and the fact that the game is unforgivably hard.

This run by xy2 beats the game with the highest score possible, without relying on checkpoint farming to increase the score further.

Osman is a arcade game in the spirit of Strider. It's a very obscure and underrated arcade game, which didn't see much of the light of day, thanks to various issues with the hardware... and the fact that the game is unforgivingly hard. The game never once lets you breathe, and in unassisted play, there are a lot of things to manage at the same time. This, along with the 3 health you start out with, can make clearing with just a single credit a nightmare.

The game mostly revolves along Osman and his power: he has the power to make clones of himself when he attacks that stay for a varying amount of time and reproduce the attack he just did.

This run is an improvement of 21.95 seconds over the previous one by the same author. Note that the real time of this run is 5:25.2 - The extra 1:11.57 is because the author puts his initials in the high score table after the credits roll.

You control a shinobi, Joe Musashi, who must battle his way through each level in search of hostages which must be rescued. You have shurikens, kicks and punches to defend yourself with, as well as powerful ninja magic which can clear the screen of enemies in one go.

Each level is broken down into smaller scenes, and hostages are guarded by big blokes who throw swords. Watch out for gun-toting enemy henchmen and ninjas.

Reaching the end of each level will find you battling it out with a boss. These range from 8ft tall giants to helicopter gunships.

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.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is an arcade game based on the TMNT cartoon released in December of 1987. Konami released this mega-hit in 1989, as one of the first arcade games to offer 4-player beat-'em-up action.

In this run, DarkKobold uses all 4 ninja turtles to freak the foot soldiers, mangle the mousers, total the Technodrome, and kick Krang and The Shredder back to Dimension-X in a little over 12 minutes.

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.

Avoid the Noid is a platform computer game for the Commodore 64 and MS-DOS, written in 1989 to promote Domino's Pizza. It was modeled after the company's ad campaign during the late 1980s. The ads featured a "noid" that destroyed pizzas and must be avoided.

The protagonist must traverse a 30-story building and deliver the pizza within 30 minutes. Colorful rabbits armed with booby traps, phone bombs, rocket launchers and bomber planes that drop water balloons seek to prevent the delivery.

Partners in crime turska & Ilari deliver the pizza in a record-breaking 03:33.52, or 7:42.00 according to the ingame clock. For details on how they did it, read the authors' commentary.

Award - Speedy TAS of 2015
CD-Man is a Pac-Man clone first released in 1989, then updated to Version 2.0 in 1992. The game speed options range from the really slow "Zzzzz..." to the mind-numbingly fast "Warp". Five levels are present in Version 2.0 of the game, unlike the original version, which ended at level 3.

Author c-square controls two characters simultaneously at the highest speed setting and clears the 5 levels twice in 3.71 seconds, making it the fastest published TAS on this site.

Due to the sheer speed of the game, slowed down encodes are available. One is at 16.7% of the regular speed, while another is at 10% of the regular speed.

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).

Jill of the Jungle: Volume I 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.

Author slamo runs through the first volume in 6 minutes and 40.85 seconds.

This is a Mega Man game that was not developed by Capcom, but rather by Stephen Rozner of Hi-Tech Expressions, who did all the design, programming, graphics and sound. The game is infamous for its mediocre quality.

In this run, DarkKobold uses precise movements and the absence of boss invulnerability periods to complete the game in under two and a half minutes.


This game runs too fast on anything more modern than a low-end 386 or so. As such, the encode is technically correct. For an encode that is slowed down to the original 30 fps, see this YouTube video.

Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow (2005), the first installment of Castlevania on Nintendo DS, is a direct sequel to GBA hit Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow.

Like its predecessor, after finishing the game, you can choose to ignore pretty-boy Soma Cruz and instead play as Julius Belmont. Unfortunately, it seems that Julius's skills have waned a bit since his last appearance. Yoko Belnades and Alucard easily pick up the slack, though.

This run avoids the use of large-skip glitches that can be seen in our other run of Julius in Dawn of Sorrow, showing off more of the game.

Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow (2005), the first installment of Castlevania on the Nintendo DS, is a direct sequel to GBA hit Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow. In it, Soma Cruz continues to cultivate his unhealthy obsession with collecting the souls of his enemies.

Using the powers that only tool assistance can provide, every single possible soul is collected in a bit over 35 minutes. If you've ever played the game, you know what a pain those souls can be.

Very detailed information on the run is available in the author's comments.

There are also runs that complete the game as fast as possible with Soma, with Julius, and with Julius while staying in bounds.

Dawn of Sorrow (2005), the first installment of Castlevania on Nintendo DS, is a direct sequel to GBA hit Aria of Sorrow. Everyone is trying to kill our hero Soma Cruz, since in the previous game he absorbed all of Dracula's attributes. Leave it to weird cults to try and bring about the end of the world by unleashing this power.

The game is so fully broken at this point that there really is no plot in this run. Or final boss. Or much of anything at all. Using movement optimizations and a new zip, this movie completes the game 19.33 seconds faster than its predecessor. More details about the glitches can be found in the author's comments.

Unlike our other Julius run for Dawn of Sorrow which goes through more of the game, this run manages to skip most of the game by using a zipping glitch to get into the Mine of Judgement early.

Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia, the third game in the series for the DS, takes a different direction from its direct predecessors in that it is more of a stage-based game, similar to the earliest entries in the series, rather than the "Metroidvania"-style first established by Symphony of the Night.

This run plays as Shanoa, who uses her Glyphs and copious amounts of backdashing to seal away Dracula once again.

We also have a run that beats the game with Albus here.

The second Castlevania title released on Nintendo DS after Dawn of Sorrow, this game is a direct sequel to BloodLines on Sega Genesis. Dracula rises from the dead yet again (cue groan), and it's up to Jonathan Morris, helped out by Charlotte Aulin, a powerful mage student, to defeat him.

This run is an improvement of 14.06 seconds over the previous run by the same author and uses many of the same glitches. Yet another slightly different route selection as well as better optimisation sends Dracula back to his coffin even faster.

Like many Castlevania games, Portrait of Ruin has extra alternate play modes available after completing the primary quest. In this case, you get to play as Richter Belmont and Maria Renard, using a dual character system very similar to the main quest.

Richter and Maria blaze a path of destruction through the castle, pacifying foes with a combination of crosses, doves and other wonderful things. Complex multiple-character motion is used to move as quickly as possible; see the author's comments for an in depth explanation.

Beating Dracula into a pile of dust in under five minutes wasn't enough for our heroes, so this time they wreck his entire castle and surrounding areas before killing him. Every boss is slain, so you get to see more of that fast "showtime" action. Significant glitching is used; read the author's comments for more information.

"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.

Kingdom Hearts Re:coded is a remake of the mobile game Kingdom Hearts coded, released in North America in 2011. It is notable for combining many elements from previous handheld games in the Kingdom Hearts series, in particular 358/2 Days and Birth by Sleep.

In this run, watch as arandomgameTASer dodges, lunges, and yells his way through the game's various Disney inspired levels, abusing a surprising number of bugs and tricks along the way. Let's hope Sora finds a good masseuse.

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.

Mothrayas picks Ashe, the female character, to minimize the cutscenes and to save time.


To play the DSM file, make sure that "Enable Advanced Bus-Level Timing" is unchecked in the "Emulation settings".

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.

Metroid Prime Hunters is the DS spinoff to the "Metroid Prime" trilogy, involving Samus in a race against six other bounty hunters to collect the eight Octoliths and get the "Ultimate Power".
At least, that's what was supposed to happen. Unfortunately for those bounty hunters, Memory is on the case. Thanks to a variety of tricks, out of bounds glitches, and optimization, Samus blazes through various planets in the Tetra Galaxy and collects the eight Octoliths in record time, destroying everything in her path. World's greatest bounty hunter indeed.
For those curious to see how the series originated, we also have a run of the original Metroid.

In this spin-off game based on Metroid Prime, Samus gets knocked and rolled around a pinball table in Morph Ball form. The table contains Metroids, which can latch onto her and suck away health. Tables initially include the surface of Tallon IV, the Pirate Frigate, the Phazon Mines, and Phendrana Drifts, though more can be unlocked by finding and collecting Artifacts, which are found by destroying Space Pirates and other dangerous creatures in certain missions.

In this TAS, Mothrayas extensively uses the game's nudging mechanic to give additional momentum and control to the ball's trajectory, along with crazy pinball action to collect the twelve Chozo Artifacts and beat the final boss as fast as possible.

Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions is a DS Spidey game released in 2010, featuring prominent Metroidvania and beat-em-up elements. It shares the same game engine with Web of Shadows and Daniel X.

This time around, Spidey decides to delay saving the universe by collecting a bunch of upgrades, much to the anger of Madame Web.

This run completes the game with all items collected, which includes all health and abilities. This is different from 100%, which would require obtaining all achievements.

The second quest of The Legend of Zelda is what you get by having completed the game once. It is more difficult than the first quest. In this movie, the authors enter ZELDA as the player's name to start the 2nd quest without having to complete the game first.

The authors in this run also enter some of their own code, and don't really complete the game a second time either – yet somehow do. See the authors' notes for more details.

We also have a non-glitched run of this 2nd quest.

- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Action
- Genre: Shooter
Alien Hominid is a 2D side-scrolling shooter with heavy references to the Metal Slug series of games - from the hand-drawn graphics, huge explosions, right down to the ability to eviscerate FBI Agents when you get up close to them. The graphics are by featured artist Dan Paladin. Your goal, is quite simply, to get to the end of the stage, and die as little as possible. Which is made difficult due to the fact that any bullet is an instant kill.

You control some sort of yellow alien with a gun. For whatever reason, he also has very Earth-like grenades with Earth-like explosions. He collides with some sort of satellite around Earth and crash-lands right in front of the FBI, who then runs off with his spacecraft and somehow forgets that bright yellow alien thing in clear sight. If you're looking for story, this isn't the game, as it just gives an excuse why you're doing these things.

This TAS improves the one provided by the winner team at Dream Team Contest 3 by 41.03 seconds.


This movie has a lua script that contains the Author's chatty commentary, and the encode of it can be seen on YouTube here.

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.

Everyone who has at least once attempted to gather a soul from each of the 120 different enemies in Aria of Sorrow, especially during a speedrun, knows the frustration it incurs after a hundredth failed attempt to get the required drop. That just makes this all-souls TAS, played on hard mode, even more impressive.

This is an improvement of 1:38.85 over the previous movie, thanks to a more optimised route and newly used items. Please read the authors' comments for more details.

If you would like to see the game beaten even faster, don't miss the any% run by one of the authors, klmz.


Note: Starting from reset was necessary to use hard mode. However, doing so is normally not allowed — refer to the rules to see the reasons.

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.

Those who greatly dislike that Aria of Sorrow's main character isn't related to the Belmont clan whatsoever can safely relax, because the powerhouse known as Julius Belmont enters the stage in the relatively short run of this Castlevania installment.

Julius is only available to those who have completed the main quest. While he can't do most of Soma Cruz's fancy tricks, he can get around just as quickly by glitching through walls and hopping madly around the castle, producing almost inhuman sounds with every jump.

This is an improvement of 3.70 seconds over the previous publication.

When played normally, Castlevania: Circle of the Moon is a rather long game, in which exploration, leveling up, and killing bosses in order to gain access to different items or portions of the castle is necessary. However, a bit of luck manipulation and a series of glitches involving DSS cards throw all these aspects of gameplay out of the window, allowing the player to warp directly to Dracula and kill him humiliatingly in just over 5 minutes.

This movie is a 21 frame improvement over the previous movie by the same author due to some small optimizations.

This is a really, really fast TAS through Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance played with Maxim, who is only available after the game is beaten once. Most of the game is glitched through by being stuck in different walls, so it's hard to explain what happened in this run; see it for yourself.

Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance is the second Castlevania game to appear on the Game Boy Advance. Juste Belmont and his friend Maxim are drawn to the newly resurrected Dracula's Castle in order to save their mutual friend Lydie, although it remains to be seen who will be saving whom.

This run plays through the Boss Rush mode using Simon Belmont, the original hero of Castlevania. Simon is pretty slow, but he still powers through the bosses with massive amounts of cross abuse.

This is a really fast TAS through Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance played as Maxim, who is only available after the game is beaten. Unlike in the glitch-warped run, the protagonist doesn't directly fight Dracula and instead defeats every boss, reaching Dracula the intended way. However, this doesn't stop Maxim from making short work of every boss and sinking into walls wherever he wants.

This TAS by gstick improves the prior run by 1:42.59 thanks to further optimizations and an entirely new route.

The main quest completion time has been shortened to nearly one fourth of what it initially was, thanks to the discovery of a glitch that allows Juste to sink into walls.

This is a 3:25.15 minute improvement over klmz's movie. Like in the previous movies, the author picked up an item to display those cool CRITICAL's for entertainment, at the cost of some time.

However, if you still think there is not enough zipping through walls, be sure to watch the second quest completed in less than half a minute!

Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy of Goku is an action RPG based on Dragon Ball Z, developed by Webfoot Technologies. It is the first game in The Legacy of Goku trilogy. Together, all three games tell the original story of Dragon Ball Z, more or less.

This run by MUGG uses copious amounts of luck manipulation and flight retention to beat this rather grindy game in a little under 14 minutes.

After having eaten very heavily just before going to bed, Garfield finds himself trapped in a nightmare from which he must escape and where he lives through all of his nine "lives". Amusingly, this is unrelated to a similarly-titled story collection.

The game is a sidescrolling platformer, which is divided into 9 levels. Each level represents one of Garfield's lives (though this implies Garfield has lived an entire life in the sewer and another in a tree...). To complete the level, Garfield must fulfill a goal which is given at the beginning, like finding 10 eggs or getting the key to a door. After three levels, there is always a boss fight. Apart from jumping, Garfield can kick to get rid of his foes and he can perform a ramming attack and an elbow blow.

tormented runs through the game in 10 minutes and 7.79 seconds.

In another delightfully colorful Kirby game, Kirby is out taking a walk when a dark copy of Meta Knight appears, slices him into four different Kirbys (each having only a limited ability to inhale), breaks the mirror leading to the Mirror World, and scatters the eight pieces far and wide. To save the real Meta Knight and free Dream Land from great evil, the four Kirbys set out to traverse the maze and collect the pieces.

Imagine Mega Man as an RPG set in an alternate universe where he and his fellow robots aren't robots but computer programs, and you end up with this series - but even this unique take on the premise is no barrier to continuing TASVideos' long history of quality Mega Man runs.

The Mega Man Battle Network series envisions Mega Man and his friends and enemies as computer programs rather than robots. It also changes gameplay from platformer to RPG, with battle mechanics similar to collectible card games.

In the second game, Lan and Mega Man are fighting a terrorist organization called Gospel, but this TAS divulges little of the plot. The author, mtvf1, races through the game, avoiding unnecessary random battles and precisely manipulating battle chip winnings and order to quickly overcome all foes. He also improves his previous movie by 2:05.93 minutes.

This is the first Mega Man Zero game in the series for the Game Boy Advance. Unlike most other Mega Man games, Zero really is not in the mood for fighting all the bad guys, and decides to call it quits in the first few missions so that he can skip ahead to the last stages.

This run beats the previous run by 4.56 seconds due to a new trick called the "spike jump" which allows Zero to climb on the spikes without taking damage.

Zero has a new body which he does all the same old stuff with. Once again, it's on the Game Boy Advance. As with the other games in the series, there is a delay with every hit of the Z-Saber, so many enemies are killed in other ways. (In particular, in this game, Zero can pick up guns from some enemies and use them for added variety.)

This run is almost 4 minutes and 20 seconds faster than the previous movie, in spite of having over 30 seconds more text due to game version differences. A large part of this improvement is due to new combos. Also, the invulnerability times of midbosses are abused even further with midair wobbling of the Z-Saber or the Z-Knuckles. For more details, see the run's comments.

This movie improves on the previous attempt by the same author by 28 in-game seconds and 34 seconds of real time. The time saved comes from more optimized movements and a few minor tricks, but mainly from a greater understanding of RNG in the game.

Award - GBA TAS of 2013
Samus's first adventure is retold in Metroid: Zero Mission with extra storyline, extra items and on a system with a better graphics processor. This run completes the game with 100% item collection, at least as far as the end-of-game display is concerned.

This is an improvement to cpadolf's 100% TAS, beating it by 38.26 seconds, 32 seconds on the ingame timer. A large part of this (29 realtime seconds, 17 ingame seconds) is because of a few route changes during the item cleanup after getting Power Bombs, but it's also because of higher optimization, faster room strategies, and better ammo management throughout the run. However, since this run is also made on a newer emulator than the published run, every room transition takes 1-2 frames longer, and the screen explaining a newly picked up item (not expansions) is a few frames slower as well.

Rather than being able to explore the world freely and sequence break to her heart's content, Samus is at the mercy of a computer's will. As a result this game is very linear with virtually no chance to collect items out of order.

The in-game completion time is 0:40 and no unnecessary items are collected (0%).

The encode without door transitions is available here on YouTube.

After a major surgery, Samus's Power Suit has been reduced in appearance. To compensate, she decides to arm herself to the teeth with 250 missiles and more power bombs than she really needs. It's her favorite thing to do when sequence breaking isn't as feasible.

BioSpark collects all 100 capacity increasing items for Samus's health, missiles and power bombs. The abilities recovered from the Core-X are not part of this number.

Like in previous Metroid Fusion TASes, lowest in-game time is top priority, sacrificing some minor tricks that save real-time but would have made in-game time slightly higher. In-game completion time is 55:28, 48 in-game seconds faster than the previous run. The real-time improvement is 30.23 seconds. It appears smaller due to 1 in-game second actually being 1.06 real-time seconds in this game.


If you are interested, an alternate encode is available, that eliminates all of the door screen transitions and conversations, cutting viewing time quite a bit.

You have in your arsenal a three-level shuriken, a sword, and a grappling hook similar to the one from Bionic Commando. Joe also has two special abilities: to make himself invincible and to attack all enemies on screen.

This new version by Cardboard is 1 minute and 31 seconds faster than the previous one by Nitsuja, containing even more ropeswinging acrobatics and ninja madness.

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 Slowdown Ring and Freeze Ring
  • 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.

When a villain known only as Mr. Dark appears, trouble brews in Rayman's world. Mr. Dark captures the Toons - the source of light - and Rayman's friends. Without the light, evil creatures begin to roam, making the world unsafe for everyone. It's up to you, as Rayman, to free your friends and put an end to Mr. Dark's dastardly schemes!

Rayman Advance is a side-scrolling platformer starring the titular Rayman, a big-nosed chap with no arms or legs. Rayman can jump and use his hair to hover for a short period of time. He can also attack by throwing his fists, or winding up his fists for a more powerful punch. He can occasionally find special powerups that grant him unlimited flying power, giving him the ability to navigate through tricky mazes.

Aside from the platforming action, the other notable feature of Rayman Advance is its large, detailed and vibrant graphics, which have helped it to stand out from most other similar games in the genre.

In this movie, got4n uses new skips and more optimization to improve his previous attempt by 5:11.91 minutes.

Shining Soul is an Action RPG by Atlus. It is the first 'Shining' game to not be produced by Camelot Software Planning, and thus is not considered canon in the 'Shining' universe. However, the game serves as an internal homage to much of the 'Shining' series. All of the bosses are major villains from a previous 'Shining' game.

The author manipulates randomly-placed monuments to appear, increasing attack power as much as eight-fold during the run. Additionally, hundreds of critical attacks had to be painstakingly manipulated to allow for enemies to die in a single hit.

This movie of Sonic Advance is unique as a speedrun in one aspect: Sonic moves so fast that the "camera" of the game cannot even follow him. Therefore, he is rarely seen in the movie.

On the rare occasions we get to watch Sonic, we get to enjoy seeing him moving through walls, charging up for another dash, or making short work of bosses.

Besides the super fast speed itself, the speed also provides Sonic an ability (glitch) to pass through platforms and walls under certain conditions.

While this movie appears to be around 3 seconds slower than the previous movie, it is in fact faster. This is due to more accurate emulation and also including the GBA boot sequence.

We also have a TAS as Sonic on this site.

It would be pointless to describe The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past here, because this run has little to do with the game itself. Using glitches exclusive to the GBA version, Link rips a hole in the space-time-continuum, enters the Palace of the Four Swords, and finishes the game in just over 5 minutes.

This run improves the previous publication by 21.16 seconds, primarily through a new trick that ends input early, using buggy boomerangs to finish off the Dark Links.

X-Men: The Official Game is Activision's tie-in video game to the 2006 film X-Men: The Last Stand. It is mostly a paint-by-numbers X-Men game, which is a good thing.

In this TAS, TehBerral makes extensive use of Nightcrawler's teleport glitch in later stages in order to blaze through the game and defeat Master Mold in record time.

The improvement to the previous run comes from better optimization with said teleport glitch, making the run much more chaotic (and 3 minutes faster).

Unlike the other versions of this game, this version of X2: Wolverine's Revenge is a side-scrolling platformer.

Wolverine mostly uses his most powerful weapon, the adamantium claws, to strike enemies. With the claws unsheathed, he can enter an even more devastating "Rage Mode" when the player repeatedly taps a button. The game also features stealth segments in which Wolverine can sneak up on enemies and use a special stealth attack to silently and instantly take them out.

In this run, nitsuja slashes and dashes around the Weapon X Facility and manages to rid Wolverine's body of the Shiva Virus in just 14 minutes.

For a movie of a similar game, see the run of Wolverine's Rage.

In Catwoman, the titular Batman villainess is spun off into her own game. Talia tries to hire Catwoman to steal a crystal skull, but Catwoman decides to keep it for herself, not knowing Ra's al Ghul plans to use it to destroy Gotham.

Catwoman has dozens of moves to help her navigate and fight her way through nine levels filled with enemies and platforms. She can attack with her claws, jump off walls, flip, grab ledges and swing with her whip, like in Bionic Commando. She also has a stealth option, allowing her to disappear into the background of a level and sneak along silently.

In this run, TehBerral plays through the game in 24 minutes and 46.23 seconds using a series of time-saving tricks.

The author, CoolKirby, races Frogger madly through the levels and rescues all of the babies in just under 10 minutes.

Hugo 2 1/2 is a game based on a call-in TV series for kids. It includes six levels (one of them is exclusive of this version) which are directly based on mini games from the TV show. The goal is always to both survive and collect as many money bags as possible. The amount of required bags to beat a level depends on the chosen difficulty level.

- Takes damage to save time
- Heavy luck manipulation
- Genre: Action
- Genre: Adventure
Set before the events of the first two NES games, the player gets to play as Christopher Belmont, one of Simon's ancestors.

Unlike most Castlevania games, there are no sub-weapons, and the player loses whip upgrades upon damage. Additionally, the Castlevania Game Boy games, unlike their NES counterparts, have ropes and moving spike walls instead of stairs.

This game, being one of the first to come out for the Game Boy, was programmed poorly, exhibiting lots of lag, and also suffers from poor jump controls. Seizing upon that, the level designers took it upon themselves to create fake difficulty by requiring pixel perfect jumps throughout.

In this movie, arukAdo eliminates lag by killing enemies as they appear on screen, destroying candles, collecting coins, and ducking when possible. In addition to that, luck is manipulated via pausing to prevent certain enemies from appearing or to force bosses to enter attack range sooner.

Note: The Konami Collection version was used instead of the original, as it lags a bit less, and is also fully colored.

Lucky Luke is based on a comic series created by Belgian cartoonist Maurice De Bevere. The series was very popular in Europe, so it's not surprising that it was adapted into a game.

TheKDX7, author of the other Lucky Luke run, improves upon the previous publication by 13 seconds due to more precise movements and some routing changes.

Lucky Luke is a game based on a famous comic series created by Belgian cartoonist Maurice De Bevere. The gun-slinging Dalton brothers have escaped from jail again and are up to no good, and it's up to the titular cowboy to catch the criminals and lock them back up.

While the author, TheKDX7, finishes the platforming stages as fast as possible, he also adds in some entertainment to the long autoscrollers to make them more interesting.

This is an improvement of 388 frames over the second Lucky Luke TAS. There is also a run by the same author which achieves 100% completion.

Mega Man Xtreme 2, like its predecessor game Mega Man Xtreme, pretty much copies content and bosses from the main line of Mega Man X games. However, Xtreme 2 gets ideas and designs from a much wider range of games, ranging all the way from Mega Man X to Mega Man X5. For instance, there is a Parts system allowing upgrades to your characters. However, there is also an original story (though it's still as silly as many Mega Man storylines), along with some new stage designs and bosses.

In this game, both X and Zero are playable. Zero is mostly used at the beginning and ending of the game, while X is used mostly in the middle of the game. Both characters get damage-boosting parts from the shop to defeat bosses incredibly quickly. For more information, see the detailed submission comments.


This run starts from a save file in order to unlock "Xtreme Mode", which allows visiting all of the game's stages and battles in one run. Runs that start from SRAM are not normally allowed; see the Movie Rules for more on this.

This GBC game is based off the popular television series Mission: Impossible.

Following the spirit of that series, this is a stealth-based game. Supposedly tricky tasks are to be performed covertly. But in this movie, stealth is clearly not one of the author's highest priorities. It's all running through guards, as if they weren't there. Yet the player does not die.

This movie is 16.43 seconds faster than the predecessor movie.

The Glukkons use the bones to make Soul Storm Brew. Abe's vocabulary is limited to "Hello", "Follow me" "Wait" and "Work". He must use these commands to direct slave Mudokons to their freedom. When enough slaves in a level have been saved, you go on to the next level to do it all again.

Pocket Bomberman is unlike the previous Bomberman games in that it's a sidescrolling platformer instead of a grid-like puzzle game. It's also one of the few games that allows Bomberman to jump.

"Jump Game" is the second of the game's two modes. The object of this minigame is to get to the goal at the top of each of the long vertical levels, defeating a boss several times in order to progress.

However, in this run, Robert_Ordis uses a glitch allowing him to clip through walls to skip several boss fights and finish all three stages in less than 2 minutes.


The Nicovideo stream features a cool heads-up display, including RAM information, input view, and even a level map.

Rockman DX3, also known as Zook Hero 2, is an an unlicensed pirate game developed by Vast Fame that rips gameplay off the Rockman X series. Just like Rockman X, there are eight stages, and six of them contain a boss who gives you his weapon upon defeat. The protagonist, Zook, also has abilities nearly identical to those of X. Despite these similarities, the code and graphics appear to be completely original and the music is actually decent.

The author, Mothrayas, plays the most popular and widely available release, which happened to be released with the final boss stage already unlocked, leading to the incredibly short completion time.

Award - Gameboy TAS of 2010
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX is an updated version of an older GB game which adds color, an additional dungeon, various other minor features, and a lot of bug fixes. Link, after rescuing Hyrule (again?), sets off on a journey and subsequently shipwrecks on the mysterious Koholint Island, which has been overtaken by evil monsters which he must defeat in order to find a way back home.

Through a wide variety of glitches and general optimizations, this is now almost ten minutes faster than the previous full run of this game.

This run does not make use of a form of warp glitching, but still demonstrates that they obviously didn't fix as many bugs as they thought.

Proving yet again the lengths a TAS can go in destroying a game, this run features a warping glitch that allows for severe sequence breaking. The final boss is reached within a handful of minutes and defeated with minimal weaponry.

The author, bobmario511, surpasses the previous run by 0.35 seconds through a completely different route.

There is a movie of this game that does not use the warp glitch.

Note: While this movie appears to be slower than the previous one, that run's time was calculated with an incorrect frame rate. This run is indeed faster.

The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons is a Game Boy Color game that carries over much of the graphics from Link's Awakening. Surprisingly, much of the game engine is completely different and developed by Capcom. In it, the Oracle of Seasons, Din, is kidnapped by Onox, General of Darkness. Link must travel throughout both Holdrum and Subrosia to collect the 8 Essences of Nature, power up the Rod of Seasons, and defeat Onox.

This game has been attempted by various authors over the past 5 years. Finally, SwordlessLink, along with Tompa, who joined the project after dungeon 4, beat this legendary game in 1:25:57.21 primarily through the use of pitwalking, Pegasus Seeds, and enemy manipulation. Please see the authors' notes for more details.

Tintin: Prisoners of the Sun is the second of two licensed games based on the Tintin comic series. It adapts the two-part story of the comic albums The Seven Crystal Balls and Prisoners of the Sun into an interactive game.

The game's physics are very similar to those of the other Tintin game, though there are some slight differences. Among them, the B button now doubles as a crouch button and the hardest difficulty gives Tintin only three health points compared to the previous game's four.

In this run, Mothrayas uses movement tricks and some shortcuts to beat the game in under 20 minutes.

Tintin in Tibet is a typical licensed platform/puzzle game, originally released in 1994 in Europe for the SNES, GB, PC, Genesis and Game Gear. The Game Boy version was ported to the Game Boy Color in 2001, which is the version played in this run.

The game consists of 15 stages, with such variety as run right for justice platformers, autoscrollers, gameplay shifts, puzzles, minigames, and just a little actual platforming. The game is somewhat infamous for being hard due to very unlenient enemy hitboxes and the combination of tricky platforming and quirky physics.

In this run, Mothrayas uses precise movement and luck manipulation to beat the game in a little over 15 minutes.

In the third X-Men game on the Game Boy Color (after X-Men: Mutant Academy and Mutant Wars), Lady Deathstrike and her fellow mutants have begun building a weapon that can melt the adamantium skeleton that protects Wolverine. The most famous of the X-Men must now fight through 16 levels to stop her from finishing this weapon.

Besides his main attack, hack-and-slashing with his trademark claws, Wolverine can fly into a rage when the attack button is rapidly pressed. While he is hard to control in this state, his attack range increases, enabling him to get through tougher sections of the game without taking as much damage.

In this run, Mothrayas utilizes some physics tricks and precise movement to finish the game in around 11 and a half minutes.

To reach this mode's ending, 15 (instead of 30 in normal mode) single-screen stages have to be cleared (all of which are different from the ones in normal mode).

The game features a ballistic bullet mechanic where you can charge each shot to have a higher exit velocity. Since only one player bullet can be visible at a time, the damage that can be done in any given timespan is severely limited, necessitating hitting multiple targets in one shot for best efficiency.

Quite strikingly, this game is plagued by extreme lag, slowing in-game time down significantly and contributing to about 80% runtime of the entire movie (about 4 lag frames per normal frame).

Batman returns to stop the Joker's latest insane criminal plot once again, 20 seconds faster than the last time!

This game is one of those grappling hook games, with which Batman can just swing through areas quickly. Much of the improvement comes from bunnybathopping Batman's way through levels and somewhat improved boss fights.

You have your choice of character between Sailor Moon, Sailor Mercury, Sailor Mars, Sailor Jupiter, Sailor Venus and Chibiusa to battle against the Black Moon Clan. The game has two modes, one containing the full story and the other focusing only on the platforming sections.

In this run, jlun2 chooses the platforming mode and jumps across the Sailor Moon world, finishing this relatively obscure game in a little over 6 minutes.

Bubble Ghost, a game ported to many platforms, has the player, as a ghost, guide a bubble through a house by blowing at it; if the bubble hits anything at all it pops and the player loses a life. If that sounds difficult, well, it is - but that doesn't stop this run from making it look easy.

This movie appears to be slower than the previous publication; however, this is due to more accurate emulation. It is in fact faster by around 25.3 seconds than the previous publication, thanks to a new trick and better optimisation in many places. Please read the author's comments for more details.

It is several years after the death of Dr. Von Frankenbone, and things around the castle are starting to fall apart. The electricity bill hasn't been paid in some time, and now the Frankenstein-like character Franky needs to find the cash to pay it off. The locals have trapped Franky inside the late doctor's private manor, and he must escape and piece together the golden tablet depicting his beautiful girlfriend Bitsy in order to pay the bills.

Dr. Franken II is a side-scrolling platformer that places you in control of Franky as he searches far and wide for the pieces of the golden tablet, including exotic locales like Egypt and the bottom of the ocean. Like the first Dr. Franken, there are many trap doors, monsters, and other obstacles. Keys are needed to unlock new areas of the game, and they can be found in the far reaches of the level.

The author, Flip, runs and jumps through the levels with precision, completing the tablet and saving Franky's home, improving the previous movie by ~43 seconds.

Final Fantasy Adventure is the first game of the Seiken Densetsu (聖剣伝説) series, but it does contain some classic Final Fantasy elements. The series is probably best known for the SNES game Secret of Mana. This game was later remade on the Game Boy Advance as Sword of Mana. Its gameplay resembles that of a The Legend of Zelda game, but with level building.

In this run, Touch-me utilizes a glitch to warp across the map, cutting down the completion time by a lot compared to the warpless run. He also improves the previous run in this category by 51:22.56 minutes thanks to a big new warp glitch that allows him to reach the top of the Tower of Gemma early.

The gameplay is much more interesting though. The author fully utilizes the ability to switch between the two characters on the fly. Weapons are fired very precisely, and some interesting glitching is used to skip parts of the first two levels.

Jurassic Park Part 2: The Chaos Continues is a video game and a non-canonical continuation of the Jurassic Park series, developed and published by Ocean Software for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) and Game Boy. The Game Boy version shown here follows a completely different storyline than its SNES counterpart.

In it, the player controls Grant, whose vehicle at Jurassic Park has stopped functioning as the result of an intentional power outage. Grant moves through a rain forest and later takes a raft down a river, where he encounters aquatic reptiles. Grant ultimately reaches Jurassic Park's headquarters, where most of the power remains off.

Hetfield90 and StarvinStruthers run and shoot through the game in record time.

There's trouble in Dream Land! The self-appointed King Dedede has stolen all of his subjects' food for a midnight feast. Kirby, a resident of Dream Land, bravely sets out to stop the gluttonous penguin and recover the food.

This first game in the Kirby series predates Kirby's ability to absorb enemy powers. He goes on to gain that ability in the second game in the series.

This run, a 34 second improvement over the previous movie, uses the 'Extra Game' password (up+select+A at title screen), which makes the enemies and bosses much more aggressive and damaging than usual.

The seven rainbow bridges, connecting the seven rainbow islands, have disappeared. King Dedede is to blame as always... or is he? The evil Dark Matter has him under his control and plans to turn Dream Land into a dark world. Kirby aims to save the day by going through seven worlds, aided this time by three animal friends (though you never see Rick the Hamster used in this run).

To get the true ending to the game, the player has to find a rainbow drop on each island, which form the rainbow sword after the main showdown with Dedede. These rainbow drops are hidden off the main paths of the stages, and most of them require a special power to break the barrier guarding the drop. This has a large effect on the route in some stages.

was0x's run is over five minutes faster than the previous run by Soulrivers. Part of this is due to cutscene skips after bosses, though this run is also much more optimized. Details can be found in the submission comments.

This game, also known as Rockman World (ロックマンワールド), is the first of a GB series of Mega Man games.

The Game Boy series is a little different from the NES series in that there are only four Robot Masters to fight at the start. Those four are borrowed from the NES game of the same number, while four more Robot Masters from the next NES game guard Dr. Wily’s fortress. Game Boy Wily also likes to have a backup fortress in space after his first one is beaten. Another recurring concept in the Game Boy games is a ninth robot boss unique to the game who gives you a new weapon that is usually the only weapon effective against the final boss.

The authors, Mothrayas and Tremane, improved the predecessor movie by 0.46 seconds thanks to better mole section in Wily Castle.

This time Wily is back, or actually forwards – in time that is; where he plans to destroy the future and bring back technology to destroy the past. Join Mega Man as he too travels to the future to prevent Wily and face his greatest enemy yet.

This run has fewer major glitches than some other Mega Man runs on this site, but it still has the same classic action, and it pulls off some very unlikely maneuvers that are enjoyable to watch.

This time, though, Mega Man seems to have discovered a way to break the game's scrolling with the Hard Knuckle weapon. This leads to a large part of the 30.37 second improvement over the previous movie by dezbeast.

Mega Man III, known as Rockman World 3 (ロックマンワールド3) in Japan, is the third Mega Man game for Game Boy, released in December 1992. The game continues the quest of the protagonist, Mega Man, in a never-ending struggle with his long-time nemesis, Dr. Wily. As with previous Game Boy releases, the game incorporates gameplay elements and bosses from two sequential Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) games: Mega Man 3 and Mega Man 4.

For those of you who enjoy listening to the music, the background music in this one is quite good, and the sound quality is much better than previous Mega Man games for the system.

This is an improvement to the predecessor movie by 265 frames, which translates to 225 frames if you only count actual gameplay. This is the result of difference in loading times between VBA and BizHawk.

This run extensively glitches the game to the point where Samus moves to rooms that are glitched and/or weren't there before. Viewers are advised that this run may induce feelings of confusion and disorientation.

This is Metroid II: Return of Samus completed with all the items collected. Being truthful to the original Metroid values, the game holds many items cleverly hidden, so finding all of them is not an easy task.

That being said, Metroid II doesn't keep track of the collected items' percentage. Moreover, the game has two excessive Energy tanks and an additional copy of each beam. It's been agreed that the author should take all the E-tanks, and at least one copy of each beam. However, due to the apparent linearity of this game, collecting so many additional items doesn't make the movie dramatically slower.

This movie is nearly 6 minutes faster than Alter's previous movie due to better precision, faster Metroid fights, and missile planning.

Note: This movie does not use secret worlds, also known as "select glitch".

Metroid II: Return of Samus is the second game in the Metroid series, taking place immediately after the events of the NES Metroid. Samus arrives at the planet SR388 to exterminate all metroids and eventually succeeds.

This movie by Cardboard puts the Spring Ball and Spider Ball to great use to compensate for the lack of items, and achieves victory in the shortest time possible.

This is a 69 second improvement over the author's previous movie. The in-game time is 43 minutes.

Ninja Gaiden Shadow (aka. Shadow Warriors) is actually a licensed GB port of Shadow of the Ninja on the NES console. Because of this, it is fairly faithful to the original despite starring Ryu Hayabusa, the main character of the Ninja Gaiden series.

In this Gaiden of a gaiden, Ryu Hayabusa manages to defeat Emperor Garuda and save mankind in under 12 minutes, notwithstanding running slower than in other Ninja Gaiden games.

This game is one of many ports of an arcade game (there is also a movie of a different version of the game here). In it, an evil force has corrupted all ninjas except for you, and you must defeat the evil force. You have four different weapons, and you can also obtain shadow clones which work similarly to the options from Gradius or the clones from Ninja Gaiden 2.

Sit back and enjoy the fast-paced ninja action and the weapon variety.

Pac-In-Time for the Game Boy was released in 1994 as a port of the DOS version of the game. Pac-In-Time is in turn a re-skin of the game Fury of the Furries for DOS and Amiga, which was licensed to Namco and rereleased with Pac-Man instead. This game is a departure from normal Pac-Man gameplay involving mazes and ghosts, and is instead a platformer.

In this run, watch as slamo demonstrates some furious rope swinging action and so many physics glitches that it'll make you cry. Waka waka.

Rolan's Curse is like a simplified version of the NES Legend of Zelda with slower gameplay and more restricted game world, resulting in a primitive hack-and-slash experience. Nevertheless, there exists an interesting storyline: The kingdom of Rolan has been invaded by the forces of some evil being called Barius. However, in this movie the final boss is never actually seen. Instead of meeting Barius face to face, the hero dies while defeating the first level boss. The game then decides to freak out and end right there, declaring the rest of the story unnecessary.

While this run appears to be slower than the previously published movie due to more accurate emulation, it is in fact faster by 0.36 seconds if emulation differences are not accounted for.

Tatanga is back after being beaten in the regular-mode run of this game, and he kidnapped Princess Daisy again. Daisy is not a pilot, so she is unable to escape from her prison in the sky, despite there being a freely accessible aircraft in the vicinity.

Mario must travel through the four Kingdoms of Birabuto, Muda, Easton, and Chai once again to rescue Daisy. Although this time around, they're packed with much more enemies than before.

This run has much more action than the regular mode of Super Mario Land, due to the increased amount of enemies, yet it is only slightly slower. If you liked TASs of Super Mario Land before now, wait until you see this.


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

Note: This movie requires conversion in order to be played in sync on VBA rerecording v23.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III - Radical Rescue is the final Turtles game released for the Game Boy. Unlike the other Game Boy Turtles games, it isn't a sidescrolling beat 'em up game, but is actually a Metroidvania by Konami released years before Symphony of the Night. Each Turtle has a unique ability that they can perform. You start as Michaelangelo, and the goal is to rescue the 3 other turtles, Splinter, and April. To do this you must fight several D-List Turtles villains like Scratch and Dirtbag before fighting the big bad (cyber) Shredder who is guarding April.

Memory beats this game in less than 18.5 minutes with some luck manipulation and several exploits to avoid saving two heroes.

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening is a classic Game Boy Zelda adventure. Link must travel across the dream world of Koholint Island, collecting the 8 Instruments to wake the Wind Fish and go home after a terrible shipwreck.

bobmario511 (the author), however, realized that "Hey, I'm in a dream. That means I can do anything I want!" With that in mind, he embarks on a journey as the legendary hero THIEF to live out his wildest fantasies. Unfortunately, he would soon find out that this dream would end up being the worst nightmare of his life, traveling through a chaotic world devoid of any logic, meaning, or consistent appearance. Summoning the power of all of the allies he can get, our hero, BowWow, Marin, a ghost, and a flying rooster travel together to make sense of the nonsensical hell of Link's own imagination, collecting what he believes to be the 8 Instruments and Secret Seashells on their way.

To see a run of the "normal" completion of this game, see this movie by the same author.

Spoiler: hover over the screenshot.

We're Back! - A Dinosaur's Story was developed by Beam Software Pty., Ltd. and released in 1993. Interestingly, the same game was released in various forms, with four editions released in separate regions: We're Back in the USA, Baby T-Rex in Europe, Agro Saur in Australia, and Bamse in Sweden. The other versions are almost identical except for the graphics; likely they were rushed out to capitalize on popular licenses in different regions.

In this particular version adapted from an animated movie by Steven Spielberg, the player controls Rex (not related to Radical Rex) who must save his three dinosaur friends, Woog, Dweeb and Elsa, from Prof. Screweyes. It's up to Rex to storm the professor's castle and save his imprisoned friends.

Mothrayas skates and zips through the game in record time.

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.

Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc is the third major platform game installment in the Rayman series. It tells the story of how Rayman stops André, an evil black lum, from taking over the world with his army of sack-like "Hoodlum" soldiers. Unlike the game's predecessor, Rayman 3 took a more light-hearted turn; it has sarcastic self-referential undertones and pokes fun at the platforming video game genre.

In this run, Got4n & Andzura abuse many different glitches to skip large parts of levels and even some boss fights. A full list of glitches used and abused can be found in the submission text.

Resident Evil 4 features a completely new story and an innovative "over-the-shoulder" third person perspective that replaces the fixed camera system of the previous three Resident Evil games.

Special agent Leon Kennedy is on a mission to rescue Ashley Graham, the daughter of the U.S. President, from a sinister cult in a remote rural part of Europe. Leon must fight hordes of violent villagers and mutated monsters on his way to save her.

The Mercenaries is an unlockable minigame in Resident Evil 4. It is unlocked by completing the main game regardless of difficulty.

The objective of the game is to kill enemies to earn points before the evacuation chopper arrives in the allotted time.

In this run, Ubercapitalist plays through the Castle level of The Mercenaries game mode using Wesker. He obtains the maximum amount of kills and the highest score using multiple weapons and major amount of luck and spawn manipulation. Ubercapitalist explains in great detail his process in the submission text.

For those who want to watch the run without all of those item pickups, Ubercapitalist has provided an "Artist's Cut" of the movie here.

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.

Altered Beast is originally an arcade game. In each level, the player must collect 3 powerups in order to transform into a powerful beast and fight the boss of that level. This game was one of the first games of the Sega Genesis system, and was first bundled with it.

This might look like it's an auto-scrolling game, but in fact the scroll speed depends on the number of enemies on screen. The player tries to kill all enemies as soon as possible to increase the scroll speed, using 2 characters to maximize this process. Almost 30 seconds were saved compared to the previous version.

Back to the Future III is a collection of four arcade games. Marty McFly and Doc Brown have traveled back through time to the year 1885 – and they're soon deep in trouble when they face "Mad Dog" Tannen's gang and have to find a way to return to the present. This game takes four scenes from the Hollywood movie Back to the Future III and turns them into arcade sequences: Buckboard Chase, Shooting Gallery, Pie Throwing, and The Train.

Note that the Genesis version is normally this dark due to a programming error in the game, and not an emulation bug.

Author Kiske runs through this short game using superhuman movements and a pause trick to manipulate luck.

Bonanza Bros. (1991) is a shooter-platform game that was first released in the arcades and then ported to the Sega Genesis, and can be played in a cooperative 2 player mode.

The plot involves the Bonanza Brothers: Robo and Mobo, who resemble the Blues Brothers, but are thieves who steal many treasures from banks, mansions and casinos.

In this run, the authors steal as many treasures as they can and avoid the police by controlling the 2 players... at the same time!

Chakan: The Forever Man is a fairly standard platform game in which you control a dead guy (Chakan has lost his soul) through many levels of hack and slash platforming. The ultimate goal is defeat all the bad-guys and so finally achieve inner-peace.

The story-line (if you can call it that), does give this game an interesting image and it is much darker than most other titles available on the Genesis.

This is a full completion run, which, compared to the any% branch, beats some additional levels and collects all items.

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

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.

Crack Down (クラックダウン) is a run and gun arcade game originally released by Sega in 1989, and ported to the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis in 1990.

This is a 2D Run and Gun game where you need to plant bombs in designated locations then escape. It has a 1 and a 2 player mode. This game features some neat music as well.

This is an improvement over the previous "1 player" TAS of 2:05.09 minutes due to a glitch which allows to cross some very thin walls. This run also obsoletes the "2 player" one.

Crusader of Centy (1994), also known as Soleil, tells the story of a teenage boy saving humanity from monsters that might or might not actually be evil. To his aid he has up to two pets at a time granting him some special ability.

The movie takes advantage of the way the game calculates movement speed to make some seemingly impossible long jumps and skip large parts of some rooms.

Dynamite Headdy (1994) is an often-overlooked action/platformer gem whose main hero, a star puppet named Headdy, can attack his enemies by shooting his detachable head at them.

During the span of the game, Headdy must defeat the evil puppet king Dark Demon who captured his friends' home town, the Keymasters that guard the path to the villain, and Headdy's lifelong rival Trouble Bruin, who is eager to take his place in the production.

To prevent all those bad things from happening, Headdy has a nice arsenal of interchangeable heads that are used both to attack enemies and to aid traveling, which brings enough variety to entertain the viewer throughout the movie.

Ecco: The Tides of Time (1994) is the sequel to Ecco the Dolphin. It is harder than the original, and continues its bizarre science fiction plotline. You control Ecco the dolphin, navigating the waters, circumnavigating the time-stream, saving lost DNA nucleotide pairs, and finding key crystals, schools of fish and pockets of air deep down in submarine caves.

Ecco is capable of moving at very high speed but has little in the way of brakes. Turning corners without smashing into walls is tricky to say the least.

This run plays on the hardest difficulty mode.

Note: The multimedia file for this run is an MKV with chapters. This can be played in most media players, but if problems are encountered then please see the Downloads page.

Ecco the Dolphin is a game where you control a fast, but hard to maneuver dolphin who travels into hostile environment to save the other dolphins after a freak waterspout storm.

This run improves the previous one through better execution, a new route and new glitches. As in the previous run, damage is avoided, as it almost always slows Ecco down. At the same time, a major new glitch allowing Ecco to go through nearly any wall was not used because the frequency of its use would make the run very repetitive.

E-SWAT: City Under Siege is a story about a cop who dreams of wearing a cybernetic jetpack suit and becoming a killing machine. His dream comes true.

More seriously, this game stars the police officer Duke Oda trying to clean up the crime in the city of Liberty and fight the crime organization E.V.E. Some more details about the game can be found here. The variety of available weapons, and the use of a jetpack (denoted Burner), make this an entertaining action-packed movie.

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.

Generations Lost is an action-platformer developed for the Sega Genesis by Pacific Softscape and released by Time Warner Interactive in 1994. The player takes on the role of a young adventurous man named Monobe who is searching for the past of his people. He is equipped with an arm-mounted device called an "e-rad" and what is believed to be magic armor. These devices allow Monobe to project energy bolts and create energy ropes to swing on, in addition to basic fighting skills, running, jumping, and rolling. The player must use his skills and his devices to traverse the many strange lands of the game.

In this run, maTO runs, jumps, rolls, and swings his way throughout the world to find the mysterious past of his people.

Also, the two players can use a "team-up" attack for high damage, which is used very frequently in this movie.

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.

James Pond 3: Operation Starfish (1993) is a platform game starring a super agile fish named James Pond, which has been Amiga's somewhat preemptive answer to Sonic the Hedgehog and Super Mario World games. The physics of this game allow for many interesting acrobatics, like running up the walls and ceilings at breakneck speed. As such, these abilities are abused to the point where, in some parts, Pond bounces around as fast as Sonic does.

Following the game's plot, the evil Dr. Maybe attempts to take over the dairy industry, for which he constructs a giant stronghold on the Moon. Because, as you probably know, its surface is made of cheese. The overworld map spans over 100 levels, but most of them are optional.

This run is the author's third submission of this game. The Cheese Mines and Stiltonium Machines were destroyed in order to reach the good ending. According to the author, the bad ending is about as bad as losing the game, as you get a non-standard game over instead of the ending.

He improves the previous run by 4:42.29, thanks to new glitch discoveries and better optimisation in many places. Please read the author's comments for more details.

The Genesis version of RoboCop 3 is a side-scrolling platform shooter. You get missions (such as rescuing your colleagues who are being kept hostage), which are divided into several smaller levels. The levels usually consist of several platforms, and are heavily populated by enemies who shoot at you. You can gather special repair kits, which will be used to restore your health after you've completed a level. RoboCop 3 is more of a shooter than its predecessors, having more and tougher enemies. Compared to the NES version, there is no zonal system damage; there are different levels, weapons and enemies.

The author of this TAS blazes through this game on the hardest difficulty in record time.

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.

Shadow of the Beast is a somewhat inferior port of the Amiga hit released in 1989. The North American release was additionally criticized for sloppy conversion that made the game run 16.7% faster than intended and, as a result, sharply increased its difficulty.
