- Uses a suboptimal character
- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Puzzle
Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo is a puzzle spin-off of Super Street Fighter II Turbo first released on the arcades in 1996, then ported to several home consoles. The game works on a mechanic of normal blocks (which can group together into power gems), crash gems (which destroy gems of the same color), and counter gems sent over from opponents that count down until they turn into normal blocks. Blocks fall in pairs and after the 25th pair a diamond gem appears which destroys all gems of the same color on the playfield.

dwangoAC chooses Ryu and plays through the hardest difficulty in a mere 7 minutes and 8.15 seconds.

Jumpman Junior is a game developed by Randy Glover, who described it as a "lite" version of Jumpman containing 12 levels for users without disk drives. In it, you need to defuse all of the bombs placed on Jupiter by terrorists. To do this, you must climb up ladders, touch the vines, and, of course, jump.

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

Note: The character should not be confused with Mario, who was originally named Jumpman. Interestingly enough, Glover cited Donkey Kong as inspiration for this game. It is not known whether the naming is a coincidence or not.

Boston Bomb Club is an old DOS tile-matching puzzle game developed by Silmarils in 1991. The aim of the game is to get the greatest number of bombs across the infernal device constructed by the mad scientists of the Boston Bomb Club from their point of origin to the target zone.

- Genre: Puzzle
D/Generation is an arcade adventure computer game with puzzle elements, published for the PC, Amiga and Atari ST by Mindscape in 1991. In 2018 it was ported to Nintendo Switch by West Coast Software with HD graphics.

The game takes place in a slightly cyberpunk futuristic setting in 2021. A French company called Genoq has developed a series of new genetically engineered bioweapons, which have run out of control and taken over Genoq's Singapore lab. The main character is a courier making an emergency delivery by jetpack of an important package to one of Genoq's top researchers, Jean-Paul Derrida (a name likely inspired by the philosophers Jean-Paul Sartre and Jacques Derrida), and who is happily oblivious to the carnage until the lab's doors lock behind him. His customer is ten floors away, all of them crawling with bioweapons.

Space Quest IV: Roger Wilco and the Time Rippers is the fourth installment of the Space Quest adventure series, and the first Space Quest game with point-and-click gameplay, as compared to its text-based predecessors. In this game, Roger Wilco is thrown into the future at Space Quest XII, and must stop Vohaul, whose consciousness lives inside another person. To do so, he must time-travel within the future (Space Quest X and XII) and to the past (Space Quest I) to gain information needed to achieve this goal.

The author, c-square, completes this game using major sequence breaks that are almost impossible to perform unassisted without abusing saves. To help with this TAS, the source code of JPC-rr was modified to support mouse input fully. See the submission text for details.

Award - DS TAS of 2011Award - Funny TAS of 2011
Brain Age (also known as Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training) is a puzzle game designed on the premise of exercising your brain. In this run, for example, the idea is to solve a series of simple mathematical puzzles.

And yet, the answers given... are not exactly what you'd expect.

The same author of the previous run brings you a set of 51 new ... answers, with extra time taken to provide you, the viewer, with the greatest possible attention to detail. Additionally, the increased detail provides a higher level of difficulty, to prevent the number recognition from checking the answer before the image is complete.

If you liked how this movie abuses a drawing recognition system, also see the trouble that TAS tools bring to a text recognition system.

Herbert's Revenge, based on the online Flash game with the same name, is a point-and-click adventure game where you defend the Club Penguin island from the evil Herbert P. Bear. Using your "Elite" secret agent skills, you can collect information about Herbert through various means and use it to foil his plans in 10 different missions.

This movie by dekutony and solarplex abuses a few glitches involving the HUD and story element skips to beat the game in under half an hour. It also beats the previous movie by about 28 seconds by skipping the teammate search in Mission 9.

Ivy is a lost bird who is wandering aimlessly around looking for her mother. Normally when you play the game you simply draw vines for Ivy to walk on and you can pull them to bounce her over an obstacle.

With tools, this turns into a mad orgy of bouncing and springy physics action that is difficult to follow with the naked eye. Don't blink or you'll miss it!

Kirby: Canvas Curse is one of many sequels in the Kirby franchise. In this installment, Kirby and the inhabitants of Dream Land are all turned into paint by the witch Drawcia, with Kirby being stuck as a limbless ball. Players must guide Kirby through various stages via the DS touchpad.

In this run, GloriousLiar exploits quirks in the way the game handles said touchpad, allowing him to launch Kirby at ludicrous speeds to beat this game in the blink of an eye.

Myst is the epic puzzle game whose puzzles will take you hours to solve. Unless, of course, you know the answer. Although you'll encounter many brainmelting puzzles when normally playing through Myst, all the game really requires you to do is flip the eight switches around the island, get the blank page and bring it to Atrus.

One of the hardest things about this is the fireplace code which must be obtained in order to get access to Atrus. However, this being a TAS, the code is known and is entered in the most entertaining fashion the author could think of.

Despite all the encounters with the supernatural, the player never even bothers to run at all, preferring to casually stroll for justice instead.

Combining the Nintendo DS's touch screen capabilities with a classic puzzle game and adding in a touch of the tool-assisted yields... a tool-assisted run of a classic puzzle game, joining the ranks of several other quirky movies similar in character. While tool-assistance may on the surface seem trivial in this case, a decidedly non-trivial amount of luck manipulation was used to create a cube solvable in the fewest possible moves. Further, the game only counts moves in quarter turns, making the number of moves used even more impressive.

Note: If you are watching the .dsm, your nickname and comment must be set to something specific in order to watch the movie. It will desync otherwise. See the author's comments for combinations that work.

Award - Funny TAS of 2013
Super Scribblenauts is the sequel to Scribblenauts, a puzzle game for the DS consisting of spawning any object from a database of thousands of possibilities (from "chair" to "God") to solve given situations. It is fundamentally the same game with two major novelties: the possibility to add adjectives (a color, a size, a state, etc.) to the objects we want to summon and the possibility to use the D-Pad to control Maxwell, the protagonist of both games, in addition to the touch screen, the only possible input method in the first installment.

This TAS completes the 10 main worlds of Super Scribblenauts. Speed is not the main goal; instead, the levels are completed in funny or unusual ways.

Disney's Lilo & Stitch is a 2002 side-scrolling shoot 'em up platform video game based on the Disney animated film of the same name that was released on June 7, 2002 for the Game Boy Advance. It was developed by Digital Eclipse and published by Disney Interactive, with Ubisoft distributing the game in Europe and Australia.

The game takes place at an unknown point of time after the original film. An extraterrestrial bounty hunter kidnaps Lilo and brings her aboard the spaceship laboratory of a robotic, mosquito-like alien named Dr. Pestus, who plans to use her as food for his genetically-modified mosquito army. Stitch must go out into space to rescue Lilo and defeat Dr. Pestus.

In most levels, the player takes control of a four-armed, plasma blaster-wielding Stitch who must run and gun his way past enemies and various other obstacles to complete the level. In puzzle-platform-styled levels, the player takes control of Lilo as she sneaks around the spaceship to find a way to escape and contact Stitch. In tube shooter-styled segments, Stitch must fly a spaceship to reach the next level, shooting down other enemy ships and dodging obstacles along the way.

Drake & Josh is a GBA game based on the Nickelodeon show of the same name. Taken from scenarios of several of the show's episodes, this game is a problem-solving, stealth, exploration game.

Or at least, it's supposed to be. In this run, however, the duo decides stealth just isn't their style, and rush through all their problems, walls be darned. Reading the author's submission comments is highly recommended.

Kuru Kuru Kururin is an unusual game that is a mix of racing/puzzle genres. The player controls a slowly spinning stick called the Helirin, and must maneuver it through a series of mazes. The player controls the direction and speed of movement but not the Helirin's constant rotation.

In this fast-paced TAS, Ryuto chooses to ignore damage penalties in exchange for blazing fast realtime completion and creative methods of getting around the Helirin's forced rotation to squeeze into even the tiniest of gaps.

There is also a run of the sequel, Kururin Paradise.

Kururin Paradise is the sequel to Kuru Kuru Kururin. Once again you control the Helirin, but this time you have a small measure of control over its rotation. This extra control allowed Ryuto to create a movie that can aim for fastest time without taking damage.

Also added to the sequel are several strange and entertaining minigames, such as using the Helirin to mow grass or attack intruding enemies Space Invaders style.

This is a 27.81 second improvement over the last attempt by the same author.

Mr. Driller 2 is a fast-paced puzzle game where you have to drill to the bottom of the level within a fixed time limit.

In this run, the author drills through the ten time attack courses in slightly under seven and a half minutes. Furthermore, he aims primarily for in-game time, as it adds to the entertainment value and adds also to the strategy, as there are time bonuses in this mode which subtract time.

This is an improvement of 4.76 seconds over the previous publication, with the improvement coming from better routes and better optimization.

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.

Gameplay consists of positioning characters close to objects in such a way that a menu at the bottom of the screen lights up. The player can then choose the correct action (examine, search, use, take) from the menu. There is also plenty of dialogue involved. To solve puzzles, the player switches between characters and uses each person's special abilities.

In this sequel to Boxxle, Willy's girlfriend has been kidnapped by a UFO and now he wants to earn enough money to buy a rocket and rescue her. And what better way is there to earn money than pushing crates? And there are lots of crates to be pushed in all 120 levels of the game. The new levels are the major difference between Boxxle II and its predecessor as there are no graphical changes to speak of. To solve all these levels, you'll once again have to push crates onto certain spots, which is made difficult by the fact that you can only push but not pull them so that it can easily happen that you push a crate into a dead end or block your own way. A password records your progress, but there is no battery to save your self-created levels.

Buster Brothers, also known as Pang, is a well-known series of puzzle games. This is the first release of the series, ported to the Game Boy. The Author decided to pick the GB version for TASing because the levels are simpler, which makes the run shorter and easier to optimize.

The plot is rather simple. Some "bubbles" are attacking the Earth and you must travel across the world busting them. The game has 50 stages divided into 17 locations: Mt. Fuji, Mt. Keirin, Emerald Temple, Australia, Taj Mahal, Leningrad, Paris, London, Barcelona, Athens, Egypt, Kenya, New York, Maya, Antartica and Easter Island. It offers the option to start from Leningrad and thus skip 18 levels. However, p4wn3r ignored this and went through all the levels to show the entire game.

Catrap is a platform/puzzle game where a boy and girl work through a series of 100 puzzles. This breaks a curse and returns them to human form. Completing each level involves climbing ladders and moving blocks so that each enemy can be defeated. A rewind function is present for trail+error attempts to get to the solutions. But that feature isn't needed here.

This run makes clever use of the switch mechanics. Switch can't be used immediately after defeating an enemy, so other actions are performed while the enemy falls off the screen. Attacking from the ladder is slightly faster, the author uses this and other similar tricks to help save time.

In the game, a peaceful nation has been invaded by an enemy army, and you must help clear the way for your own forces by plane. You must guide your tank to the end of each stage by arranging boxes with a hook attached to the bottom of your plane, as well as by shooting enemy planes and batteries that threaten it.

ThunderAxe31 beats the game in just 10 minutes and 47 seconds, dropping boxes all over the place like crazy. This is done not just to guide the tank to the end of each level as quickly as possible, but also to mess around while waiting.

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.

Blockout is best described as a 3-dimensional successor to Tetris with shapes of up to 5 cubes arranged in various polyforms falling into a 3D pit. Blockout remains popular as there is still an active community as well as several leaderboards. The game was ported from the original DOS to Apple IIGS, Macintosh, Commodore 64, Amiga, Atari ST, Atari Lynx, Genesis and arcade, with the Lynx version faithfully ported by the original designers, Aleksander Ustaszewski and Mirosław Zabłocki. The original manual is available courtesy of archive.org (albeit with several inaccuracies compared to the released game) and Hardcore Gaming has a good history of the game's development and subsequent ports.

This run by dwangoAC completes all levels of Blockout as fast as possible on Out-Of-Control with Fast Rotation.

ウッチャンナンチャンの炎のチャレンジャー 電流イライラ棒 (Ucchannanchan's Passionate Challenger: Irritating Electric Rod) is a faithful recreation of the mechanical wire loop game popular in Japan, in which the player must guide an electrified rod through a path of parallel metal wires as fast as he or she can without touching the wires.

This adaptation is viewed from the perspective of the end of the metal rod. There are six courses consisting of narrow pathways with curves and obstacles. Later courses introduce moving obstacles and sections where the screen slightly tilts. Just like the real game, touching the wires results in instant loss and the gameplay is commentated by an enthusiastic announcer.

This run by TASeditor improves the previous run by 0.65 second with better optimization. He also adds in some entertainment and close calls with the wires, much to the shock of the in-game announcer.

This run aims to get the highest score possible in the 1 minute challenge.

The final score is 2,613,944 points. There are huge bonus multipliers which stack together to produce the massive score.

Adventures of Lolo (1989) was the first game of the Eggerland series that received a Western release. Interestingly, the series was developed by HAL Laboratory, who also created the Kirby series, and Eggerland protagonists Lolo and Lala make cameo appearances in Kirby games as Lololo and Lalala.

The goal of the game is to collect all of the hearts in every stage and then get the ball from the chest to open the door to the next room. Though it may seem simplistic, it remains a truly well-made puzzle. Finding optimal solutions to most of the rooms has proven to be a very nontrivial task, and every once in a while a new improvement is found.

As such, this is Baxter's 10th attempt at this game, this time 10.16 seconds faster than the previous with the help of Zugzwang. Eleven rooms have been improved.


For the weak-spirited who aren't willing to watch the run all over again only for the improved rooms, the authors have inserted an easter egg into the input file! If you run the same .fm2 on the NES game Defenders of the Crown, it will complete it as well in just 3 minutes and 38 seconds.

Use the ROM "Defenders of the Crown (U).nes" to watch it.

Boulder Dash is a well known action-puzzle game where you must collect a quota of diamonds and reach the exit.

Normally, standing under any falling object or just getting close to an enemy means instant death, but in this movie the player fearlessly dives through heaps of falling objects and walks past enemies without a scratch.

It's quite pleasureable to watch if you have ever sat screaming at this game for getting stuck or killed repeatedly.

This playthrough uses a password to skip to level 19-1, which begins the hardest set of levels.

In this 71-second improvement to the previous movie, CtrlAltDestroy finds even faster solutions to many of the game's puzzles, and destroys the amoebas in record time by abusing their AI.

In Fisher-Price: Firehouse Rescue, the player controls a fireman driving a firetruck. Both the fireman and the firetruck bear the familiar style of the popular Fisher-Price toy line. The object of the game is to rescue pets from trees and people from houses in the immediate neighborhood. There are 2 parts to this task: the first part involves navigating the maze-like streets from an overhead perspective in order to find the troubled residence. Once the house is reached, the second part of the job is to maneuver the firetruck's ladder underneath the person or animal in need of rescue, from a side perspective, and letting them down to safety.

While the first level confines the entire neighborhood to a one-screen maze, later levels span multiple screens, thereby increasing the challenge. Further, later levels also add time limits and additional keys that the player must collect before attempting the rescue mission.

Notable for once being one of the hardest Super Mario Bros. hacks ever made, Hard Relay Mario (2004) is more like a puzzle game with its cryptic and difficult level layouts.

In this run, made over the course of two and a half years, watch as HappyLee abuses the game engine to its fullest, finishing the game in the time it would normally take to get past the first few obstacles.

To see the game as it was meant to be played, you can also watch HappyLee beat the original game in his "warps" and "warpless" runs.

Note: Due to how similar Air 2 is to this game, this game obsoletes it as it is overall more entertaining to watch.

A boy named Satoshi suffers from a unique type of color blindness — he can only see in black and white. However, he also has a special ability to turn solid objects intangible and vice versa! But despite the amazing power he holds, Satoshi only wants to see like a normal boy. He seeks out an answer to his vision problem in a mystical manor called the Denine Devil Mansion, where he meets a scientist who offers him a game. If Satoshi wins, he might gain the ability to see in color. With that goal in mind, Satoshi accepts the offer and begins the Inversion game.

In each level, Satoshi must collect all of the keys to open the door to the next map. He can use his special ability to change the solidity of all objects in the level and reveal solutions to the game's many puzzles. Springs, moving platforms, vertical conveyor belts and levers can also be used to his advantage.

In this run, MESHUGGAH & jhztfs use a few tricks and a lot of precise movement to help Satoshi beat the game in record time. This run is 5.94 seconds faster than the previous version by MESHUGGAH.

Mendel Palace is an action-puzzle game. When playing in real-time, it becomes more action than puzzle, and when TASing, it becomes more puzzle than action. The idea is to shove your opponents into the walls of the arena by flipping over ground tiles. This is harder than it looks, since the enemies often approach in swarms and can kill you with one touch.

Flipping can also reveal some other tile types. For instance, the sun tile flips over everything else, which often cleans up the arena in a hurry. However, there are also extra enemy spawn areas that can be uncovered, especially in the last levels. For more details, see the run's submission comments.

DarkKobold beats the game in just over 19 minutes by using 2 players at the same time.

The title of this game is very appropriate, as wherever you look there are walls you can break through, or invisible blocks you can make appear.

In order to complete this game as fast as possible, every little secret must be known ahead of time, and the author clearly exhibits such knowledge.

This movie was made with the Japanese version, 迷宮組曲 (Meikyuu Kumikyoku, meaning labyrinth composition), but it is essentially identical to the English version, except for the shop/intro text language.

It is about two minutes faster than the previous version, mostly due to much faster boss fights and more precise maneuvers.

The evil space wizard Krohn has mastered the power to control a black hole, and plans on using this power to control the universe. You are an explorer on assignment in a remote corner of the universe. You have just been reassigned to fight Krohn since your ship, the Millennium Orb, is the only space craft cabable of withstanding Krohn's black hole. To defeat Krohn, you must get past 30 different chambers blocking the path. On the left and right side of each chamber are force fields which you must maneuver to keep the Millennium orb within the chamber. Each chamber contains a plane in the center with various targets, around which the Orb will travel. You can make the Orb dive out of it's orbital path into the plane and hit the targets. To complete each chamber you need to complete a goal with the targets (often you will need to figure out a way to clear them all.) The Millenium Orb has a limited amount of feul, however, which will be used up over time and in even greater quantities should you miss the Orb with the force fields. When fuel is low, you can head to Vern's Orb-O-Rama and use earned credits to refuel your Orb.

Palamedes II can be described as "its predecessor, turned upside down". As before, your goal is to rearrange a set of dice and put them in a row for elimination. Only series of dice such as 4-4-4-4-4 or 1-2-3-4-5 can be eliminated, and depending on the series, this will result in one or several rows of dice to be eliminated from the screen. Unlike the original Palamedes, this time your character stands on top of the dice, and the growing pile of dice will crush him unless he makes the correct combinations to eliminate the pile. It's a bit like Tetris, and a bit like Klax.

Two modes are available. Mode 1, that this run uses, puts your player on top of a growing pile which must be eliminated.

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

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

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

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

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

Dizzy, the intelligent egg-like creature, is back in this second game of the famous series from the 1980s. He needs to gather items that he can trade for boat parts to escape from some islands. For the best ending, he also needs to find 30 coins, some of which are hidden.

This game has a reputation of high difficulty because of its physics and control scheme, but goofydylan8 makes it look like a relaxing platformer through masterful route planning and item management.

We also have a run of Dizzy the Adventurer.

Sesame Street's Count von Count stars in this educational game where the point is to learn how to identify numbers.

Solomon’s Key is a puzzle platform game with an old clumsy magician who has the power of creating and destroying platforms. And through that power, he saves the world.

This movie plays all the rooms of the game, including the hidden rooms with Page of Time, Page of Space, and even a princess of some kind. (Fairy collection rooms were not included.) No warps were used. Due to those secrets, it accomplishes the best ending of the game.

This movie is almost a minute and a half faster than the predecessor movie. In addition, it marks the obsoletion of the last Famtasia movie.

Solstice: The Quest for the Staff of Demnos (1990) follows a wizard called Shadax on his quest to retrieve the eponymous staff in order to save a princess from being unjustly incarcerated. The game is essentially a huge isometric labyrinth filled with devious traps and oddball creatures to ensure especially frustrating peril in the absence of any kind of map to help the player.

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

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

- Playaround
- Heavy luck manipulation
- Genre: Puzzle
To the average player, Tetris is a fast-paced action/puzzle blend where reflexes become a huge factor as pieces pile up and speed increases dramatically. For one with perfect reflexes, however, it's no longer a challenge of 'where does the next piece go to make lines / avoid piling up?' so much as 'where can I put the next piece to make things look the most interesting?'.

This run exemplifies that philosophy, exploiting the ability to manipulate the next piece that appears to the fullest in the service of creating a pattern which would be nigh impossible to duplicate in real world conditions.

If you thought that TASing was only about speed, look no further than this example to prove otherwise.

This movie aims for the fastest possible time to get a score of 999999 in this game. A surprising 17.53 seconds have been shaved off the previous movie through the discovery of a new glitch.

It warps directly to the 18th level and fills half of the field quickly to be able to operate short distances in the top part of the field. From there on, it only gets tetrises (4-line clearings) until the score is maxed out.

A glitch involving pressing several directional buttons at once is used to manipulate luck for the next pieces. Flickering of the next piece block and piece in play results. Of course, the fun doesn't stop there, the L blocks also have their say in getting tetrises.

For the record, this is the fastest speed the NES game is capable of. For more extreme Tetris fun, please see movies from Arika Online.

Tetris 2 + BomBliss is one of the many versions of the famous soviet puzzle game. There are, naturally, two variations featured on this cartridge: regular Tetris with several modes, as well as a new game called BomBliss.

BomBliss is slightly different from regular Tetris. In each stage, the well is filled with a preset pattern of blocks and bombs. Completing a line will, unlike Tetris, not clear it. It will, however, activate any bombs within the completed line, which can then destroy the blocks. The goal is to clear the entire well of blocks.

The author of this movie, fcxiaopengyou, blasts through the 90 levels of BomBliss's Puzzle Mode in record time.

- Heavy luck manipulation
- Genre: Action
- Genre: Puzzle
The Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle is a frustrating action puzzler. In it, you take control of Bugs as he collects carrots while avoiding enemies such as Sylvester the Cat, Daffy Duck, Yosemite Sam, and Wile E. Coyote. Equipped with nothing but an occasional boxing glove which he can throw and some invincibility potions, Bugs must eat his way through 60 levels without getting trapped by a mob of Looney Tunes.

In this run, the author, Brandon, exploits the game's AI, which is anything but intelligent. Only one of these enemies follows actual movement, while the others will track your input, even if the input changes nothing. As such, the author is able to often render the enemies useless, allowing him to take the most optimal path. When he can't do this, he tries to find the best possible workaround, often pausing for the exact amount of time to make it past a baddie. As a secondary goal, Brandon also attempts to maximize the score without losing time. For more details, as always, please see the author's notes, and also make sure to watch the captions provided in the encodes.

The author has also created a run of this game's "Special Levels".


This run has two YouTube streams. The first contains no input display while the second one does. This was included as the luck manipulation is heavily based on input and it's hard to follow the run otherwise.

The Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle is a frustrating action puzzler. In it, you take control of Bugs as he collects carrots while avoiding enemies such as Sylvester the Cat, Daffy Duck, Yosemite Sam, and Wile E. Coyote.

This game features 4 "Special Levels" which can be accessed either by the "No Carrot Signs" found in several levels or by a password. In this run, the author, Brandon, completes these difficult levels with absolutely no help from the boxing gloves and potions featured in the main game. All he has to work with is precise movement and luck manipulation, and although this, coupled with the numerous enemies, make these levels far less trivial than the main ones, the completion time is still relatively small. Much of the length of this movie is a result of the unavoidable and abnormally long tube scenes in S4 and S1. For more details, as always, please see the author's notes, and also make sure to watch the captions provided in the encodes.

Gomola Speed is an action/puzzle PC Engine game, released in 1990 in Japan by UPL. Its gameplay is described as a cross of Snake, Flicky, Qix, and Gauntlet - you control a cyber-worm's head, have to collect segments to increase your worm's length, use it to encircle spheres of "food", and then reach the exit while dodging enemies along the way. This is done over the course of 25 Acts which throw several kinds of enemies, mazes, keys, power-ups, and bosses into the mix.

Mothrayas completes the 25 Acts in record time. Please read the author's comments for more details.

Bishi Bashi Special is a game that's similar to Salary Man Champ, being a collection of mini-games with a variety of rules.

This game has two modes, the main mode and Time Trial mode. Time Trial mode features the car level from the main mode as well as a lot of original levels where a button must be pushed over and over as fast as the player can, aptly nicknamed "button mashers".

While this movie by Spikestuff seems slower than the previous publication that runs through Time Trial mode, it is, in fact, faster by 0.39 seconds in in-game time. For more details, see the author's comments.

Here, Sir Fortesque pulls out his own brand of trickery, warping around levels and outwitting the fiendish puzzles in order to stop Zarok and his forces as quickly as possible.

No One Can Stop Mr. Domino is a puzzle game which sees you controlling the titular Mr. Domino (or one of his friends, if you prefer) as he zips around levels which can be best described as a racetrack. As the title suggests, you can't actually stop Mr. Domino - however, you can guide him around the track, speed him up and slow him down. He'll need to dodge obstacles as he aims to activate "tricks" which are placed around the board.

In this run, Spikestuff improves the his previous effort by 4.75 seconds and Mr. Domino proves that once again, he cannot be stopped.

Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee, a game released for several platforms, details the adventures of Abe, a Mudokon, attempting to save his race from slavery and other horrible fates at the hands of the evil Glukkons.

In this run, Samtastic rescues all 99 of Abe's fellow Mudokons, earning the good ending and unlocking some bonus features to boot.

This movie seemingly doesn't beat the previously published input time, due to playing on the new emulator, Bizhawk. But accurately speaking, this movie is 2:08.18 faster than the previous run.

If you like this movie, be sure to check out the other run of this game, where Samtastic & Dooty rush to the end of the game without caring about Abe's partners.

Sorcerer's Maze (released in Japan as Prism Land Story, or プリズム・ランド・ストーリー) is a Breakout clone for the PSX. It features more power-ups than you can shake a stick at. Giant lasers, tens of balls (or even hundreds, with a strange power-up), stars falling from the sky, and balls nearly as big as the level.

With tool assistance, all of this can be manipulated (to some extent). This run features quite a bit of planning and bonus management, the details of which can be found in the author's comments.

Suzuki Bakuhatsu (鈴木爆発) is a bomb disposal game where the player must disassemble and disarm increasingly complicated and bizarre explosives. Given a set of tools – initially only a screwdriver and nipper; later also a wrench (spanner), allen wrench (hex key), and adhesive tape – the player must disarm each bomb within a specific time limit. The player can rotate and pan all around the object, looking for places to use different tools, but must always be mindful of the timer. If it runs out, the bomb explodes and it's game over. Additionally, there's no pausing once the timer starts, so quick thinking is critical!

Spikestuff improves his previous TAS by 5.11 seconds, thanks to better optimisation.

This TAS runs through the Master Game mode of Bomberman on the Sega Saturn. While the basic gameplay is very similar to any game in the Bomberman series (especially the Super Bomberman SNES runs found at TASVideos), there are some key differences in this run. Rather than having multiple themed worlds with a boss at each, there is one temple with 20 floors and a boss after every four floors. More importantly, though, many important powerups are lost after each floor in the Master Game mode. This means the player needs more creative routes for laying bombs to get the fastest time.

This run by th2o and VicoV runs through the whole game in just over 10 minutes without taking any damage.

Mole Mania, known as Moguranya (モグラ~ニャ) in Japan, is an action puzzle game. The main character is a mole named Muddy Mole, whose wife and children have been kidnapped by the farmer, Jinbe. Muddy has to go to Jinbe Land and save his family. In the game, the player will solve puzzles by moving a black ball to a gate. However, there are many obstacles and enemies in the way. Therefore the player will dig into ground to find ways around them.

The player skips 6 levels out of 8 using a glitch, causing the time records to be nullified from the second stage to the seventh stage. The previous run used a reset glitch to perform this skip. This time, a different warp glitch was used, which is where most of the 2:45.93 improvement comes from.

Who'd have thought playing Tetris could be such a Blast?

Tetris Blast is a spin on the classic Tetris formula. The new type of blocks, bomb blocks, detonate when they are part of a line that gets completed and destroy the blocks around them. A chain reaction of bomb block explosions or a carefully positioned square of four bomb blocks can take out the entire screen.

The author, Ryuto, manipulates luck and forms bomb block squares and explosion chain reactions to finish this game in just under 4 minutes.

This is the only Tetris Blast game released outside of Japan (where it is known as Bombliss). To see a run of one of the Bombliss games by the same author, watch this run.

The kingdom of Bizyland is in trouble when the evil ruler of the neighboring land, Lasyland, uses a magic mirror to swap kingdoms and kidnap the princess. It's up to the king's chosen warriors to reverse the spell cast by the mirror and save the princess.

Cacoma Knight in Bizyland is a Super NES video game created by Datam Polystar. It is a hybrid of action and puzzle elements. Each level is a single screen. The first image that the player sees is a landscape, for example, a forest or a town. The image will then fade into a "corrupt" version of the landscape, for example, the trees become rotten and buildings become ruined. Each screen has a "Qualify" target that shows how much of the screen must be cleared before the game continues to the next level. The player can then use the Magical Chalk to section off an area of the landscape, using either the borders of existing cleared sections or the borders of the screen. When a full shape is completed with no holes in its borders, the smaller of the two sections created is "purified" and returned to the original state shown at the beginning of the level.

In this run, Meerkov beats the predecessor movie made by WarHippy by 2:20.23 minutes. Lots of time is saved from cutscenes, load time, and lag. Also, nearly every level is improved thanks to a number of tactical changes. Finally, thee levels are skipped in the Japanese version of the game that is used here, while the obsoleted run used the USA version.

Goof Troop (1993) is a cheerful puzzle game based on Disney show of the same name. The gameplay is somewhat similar to NES Legend of Zelda with its maze-like map filled with one-screen rooms, except this time the emphasis on puzzles is stronger, and you can play in co-op.

In this movie the authors control two characters (Goofy and Max) simultaneously. This allows for a good deal of team work as one character can go get an item while the other heads for the exit. When there is no multi-tasking to do, the authors do a good job performing antics with one or both of the characters.

This is a nearly 4 minute improvement over Frenom's previous movie. Improvements come from new tricks, better teamwork, luck manipulation and optimized movements.

May is an apprentice mage at Magic School and must pass the final exam.

A puzzle game seen from a top-down perspective. The goal of each level is to open the exit by pushing a magic stone on a designated spot. May can also push objects one tile ahead without moving herself. This is often used to get the stone over water that she can't cross herself. May's other ability is to create magic bubbles. She can create bubbles in three different sizes. Bubbles will pop after a certain amount of time, depending on their size. If they pop while next to the stone or another bubble, the stone or bubble will be moved one space. Since May can create several bubbles simultaneously, it is possible, and often necessary, to create chain reactions to maneuver the stone into the desired position.

When played at full speed, Super Bomberman 2 is a straightforward action game, but if it's played in slow motion, it becomes an extremely tactical puzzle game.

This Tetris Attack movie aims to get the highest score in the shortest amount of time possible. The result is obtained by executing multiple combos simultaneously, building them up to level 13. Combo bonuses are no longer awarded after getting 13 consecutively due to a bug in the game.

The level of play is far and above what any human could do in real-time on this game.

This is an improvement of 7.88 over the previous movie by the same author, zvsp. He does this primarily by starting each chain with one explosion. That way, he can explode the saved blocks during the chain, which, thanks to a glitch, gets him around 25000 points for every 13x chain. This allows him to beat the game in four chains instead of the previous five.

- Aims for maximum score
- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Puzzle
This movie was played on Panel De Pon, the Japanese version of Tetris Attack.

The only difference in gameplay between the two versions is how the scoring system works. Instead of doing many combos in a chain as in the US version movie, author zvsp uses a few very large combos to reach the goal about 30 seconds faster, finishing with an ingame time of 0'25.

Zvsp also improves the previous run by 1.31 seconds by selecting his character in the optimal way.

- Contains speed/entertainment tradeoffs
- Genre: Platform
- Genre: Puzzle
Umihara Kawase (海腹川背) is about a schoolgirl with a bag of holding and a rubber fishing line setting out to rid the world of giant mutant fish.

This video plays the fastest path of the game having only two bosses, which you can find at the Field Map page.

The Umihara Kawase page has more information about this game.

The boss levels are quite long in this movie ― they can't really be sped up, but the authors of the movie have done their best to make them worth watching.

Thanks to a different route and a lot of optimization, this run obsoletes one of the oldest previously unobsoleted runs of the site by about 1:29.18 minutes.

No frogs were harmed in the making of this movie.

This little-known Japanese wire-action platformer, with a very well-made rubber wire physics simulating engine, sports a schoolgirl setting out to rid the world of giant mutant fish.

The game is very easy to win, but very difficult to play (try it). This video demonstrates one of the fastest paths to the ending, including quite a few almost impossible maneuvers ― whether playing tool-assisted or not.

This video is a 7 seconds improvement to the previous version.

See the Umihara Kawase page for more information about this game, and the author's comments for more information about this movie.

Wario has taken over the forest and it is up to Toad to defeat all of his monsters in huge tree trunks, caves and castles to save the day!

This is like Yoshi's Cookie and Tetris Attack all in one game. Your goal is to match lines of two or more monsters with bombs of corresponding color until you have cleared the screen.

Watch as DonamerDragon uses planning and luck manipulation to destroy the game's time competition levels!

- 100% completion
- Best ending
- Genre: Puzzle
Mario has returned to the Mushroom Kingdom from a trip, only to find that Bowser has started a construction campaign of building new hideouts. The construction projects are depriving the kingdom's plants of sunlight and thus, Mario decides to demolish the projects with his hammer. Along the way, he meets his old enemies from the original Wrecking Crew, including former rival Foreman Spike.

This Japan-only sequel to the original game takes a more competitive approach, giving two opponents their own sides to demolish as many panels as they can. Once one of the sides is completely filled up, the other player wins.

In this run, pirohiko takes advantage of a shortcut that humorously ends a level instantly if three lines of at least three panels of the same color overlap.

Award - Computer TAS of 2013
Braid is a famous indie platform game with some unique puzzlework. It was originally released on Xbox Live Arcade before being ported to other platforms. A major feature of the game is the player's unlimited ability to reverse time and "rewind" actions, even after dying. The game itself was intended to be an artful deconstruction of traditional video game concepts.

Many tricks are used to complete the speedrun mode in an astounding 20:11.17 according to the internal timer; see the author's comments for more information.


If you understand French pretty well, you may be interested in watching the special episode of Speed Game, featuring commentary from Coeurdevandale and the author of this TAS, keylie. The tricks used are also explained there.

Eryi's Action is a sidescrolling platformer where Eryi must charge through a series of devious traps and enemies in order to stop Farta and recover her melon. There are so many of these traps, in fact, that the developers designated the game a "trapformer". In many cases, the most obvious path through an area does not work, and only clever thinking or trial-and-error will allow Eryi to proceed safely.

Aside from the traps, the game is designed to be very similar to Super Mario Bros.: enemies are defeated by being jumped upon, a flagpole must be reached at the end of each stage, and there are even mushrooms (which can be used as trampolines).

In this run, Bernka uses tool assistance to barely steer Eryi away from many traps and even fool several others, chaining mushroom and enemy jumps and moving precisely to beat the game in the fastest time possible.

For a movie of a similar but much less polished game, see the
