Barnstorming is an Atari 2600 video game designed by Steve Cartwright and published by Activision in 1982. The goal of the game is to fly through barns, while avoiding windmills and birds. There are four difficulties, going from 10 to 25 barns.

In this run, StarvinStruthers completes the easiest difficulty as fast as possible.

- Contains speed/entertainment tradeoffs

- 2 Players
- Genre: Racing
Dragster, released in 1980 for the Atari 2600, is the first video game developed by Activision. It was programmed by David Crane, who later wrote Pitfall! The object of the game is to either beat the player's opponent across the screen, or to race against the clock for best time, depending on the settings used.

The game is well known as having the first console speedrun with the world record of 5.51 by Todd Rogers in 1982 according to Twin Galaxies. This record is known as the oldest, unbeaten world record in all of speedrunning. Omnigamer decided to try and match the elusive 5.51, and disassembled the entire game looking for how the 5.51 was achieved. After conducting his research, Omnigamer found that the long sought 5.51 was impossible to achieve within the conditions of the game, putting into doubt the veracity of the record of Todd Rogers.

Instead, this run achieves the fastest possible time of 5.57 on player one, with player two completing the track in the lowest amount of input frames.

Drag Race is an arcade game released in 1977 by Kee Games (a subsidiary of Atari). Drag Race was designed by David Crane before the Great Exodus from Atari that would lead to the formation of Activision. At Activision, David Crane would redesign Drag Race for the Atari 2600, released in 1980 as the more widely-known Dragster. This unauthorized adaptation, among other litigation between Atari and Activision, would not be resolved until years later. The cabinet for Drag Race features controls for 2 players, including a steering wheel, a 4-way gear shifter, and a gas pedal. The cabinet even has functional analog tachometers to indicate when to shift! The display is black and white with overlays for color and text. Interestingly, the sound is in stereo, with each player hearing only the sound of their respective dragster in their speaker. The game's mechanics are inventive and gameplay is fun and exciting--as it would later be for Dragster.

£e Nécroyeur races through three heats in record time.

Not satisfied with regular Skyroads, the developers decided to create a new set of significantly shorter yet excessively difficult tracks under the excuse of a holiday theme.

Here, you can feel vindicated that you don't have to play through those tracks yourself.

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.

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.

- Best ending
- Genre: Racing
The Crash Dummies need to earn some money so they've taken on some odd jobs. And when it comes to Crash Dummies, the odder the better. Although it shares the same name, this game greatly differs from the NES version and other platforms. You play as crash dummy Slick, trying to earn money. The better you do, the more money you earn. If you don't earn enough, you must redo the level. The levels vary with events like diving off a building as a movie stunt, driving a car to test air-bags, skiing down a mountain, etc. Up to two players can play, alternating.

The Genesis remake of Marble Madness is not directly comparable to the original. In addition to having much worse audio quality, the rules on where (and what) the marble can go (and do) are relaxed, allowing for many shortcuts not possible on the NES.

- Heavy glitch abuse
- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Racing
Outrun is a racing game where the player is presented with forks in the road. The left fork leads to an easier stage and the right fork leads to something more challenging. The camera travels along with the car rather than just presenting a birds eye view. Its designer, Yu Suzuki, describes it as a driving game rather than a racing game.

In this run weatherton uses a couple of tricks to speed things up. By quickly switching between high and low gear driving-off road is possible without slowing down. While using this trick the car stays a fixed distance from the road, making impossibly tight turns possible. The position, type and number of cars and the position of obstacles can be manipulated by horizontal position and the frame they load on. Proper timing of the accelerator allows for a turbo start. And revving a few frames before that adds a little bit more.

Skitchin' is a racing game released in 1994 by EA. It is the spiritual successor to the Road Rash series. The goal of the game is to rollerblade to the finish line, grabbing cars to boost your speed (the titular "skitching"), performing tricks, and knocking over other racers with various weapons.

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

Antarctic Adventure was released by Konami in 1983 for the MSX and was later ported to other platforms. You play as Penta, a penguin racing around Antarctica to different research stations while avoiding sea lions, breaks in the ice, and a time limit. The game was popular enough that it spawned a sequel, Penguin Adventure, and Penta became Konami's mascot for a time.

This run by Vampier makes one full round around Antarctica and finishes in just under 14 minutes.

Death Race is a standalone challenge within F-Zero X, so a standalone movie seemed the best way to present it. The goal is simple: destroy the other 29 ships as quickly as possible according to the in-game clock.

This TAS completes the F-Zero X Death Race as quickly as possible, with a time of 5.866s. This improves the prior fastest TAS time of 8.927 by Katsukawa Sojuro aka Xenos (who reports an unpublished time of 6.993s by throwing the car off the side as this TAS does).

The unassisted world-record is 24.745s by Daniel, played in PAL (20.621s converted to NTSC). There's no video of that time, but this video by the same author is almost as fast.

F-Zero X is the 3D sequel to the popular SNES hovercraft racing title. It offers a wide array of cars, tracks and play options, and has had an active speed-running community since its release in 1998.

This TAS completes the 6 tracks of the Jack Cup in time trial mode, where you choose any track to drive solo aiming for fastest possible completion of 3 laps according to the in-game timer, accurate to the millisecond. A special input sequence is used to unlock all cars (you normally unlock cars by playing in grand prix mode).

This TAS saves 1'10"614 (in-game track totals) over the previous Jack Cup TAS by Lord Tom. For a per-track comparison, check the author's comments.

Award - First edition TAS of 2016Award - N64 TAS of 2016Award - TAS of 2016
Mario Kart 64 is the first 3D game in the Mario Kart series, released in 1996 by Nintendo. Widely regarded as classic, it still retains a following to this day.

A run 7 years in the making, this Mario Kart 64 TAS features weatherton completing all 4 Grand Prix Cups in under 21 minutes. Due to the nature of the game, knowledge of the internal code allows for heavy RNG manipulation, getting even the most unlikely items on the first try. This and the incredible movement precision are used to create crazy shortcuts, often completing laps in mere seconds.

The submission text contains highly detailed information about the strategies of every track, the RNG manipulation and a lot of other information about the run.


You can watch the complete run being played back on a console.

At AGDQ 2014, the Mushroom Cup of this run was presented on console, and at AGDQ 2016, the Star Cup was presented.

Micro Machines 64 TURBO (released in 1999) is the Nintendo 64 remake of Micro Machines V3 (released in 1997) for the PlayStation and PC. It features the same clunky menu system and the same 43 primary courses and 31 unique vehicles (the PlayStation version also had a plodding training mode, "Cherry's Driving School" with five courses defined by cones and a unique training vehicle). The visuals have been slightly improved and a "turbo selection" speed control was added that allows players to choose faster, harder levels of speed.

In this run, Weatherton speeds through one lap of all the courses. To do so, three different gameplay modes are necessary: Time Trial, Test Drive, and Party Play modes. Each track is played using an in-game code to drive at double speed, making the action even more frantic and impressive.

Wildwaters (also known as "Extreme Kayak" and "X-Stream") is a cancelled racing game that was in development by Looking Glass Studios for the Nintendo 64 in 1998-1999. The project was announced at E3 1999 by the company's publisher, Ubisoft, while the studio was working on Destruction Derby 64 (released in the same year), but sadly it was discontinued the following year. The game features an engine with real waterflow physics on the river, an impressive feat on the N64.

In this run, Swordless Link completes the first level (the only playable one), using the fastest character and abusing rocks, walls, and everything in his path!

  • 5 = 31.34 (0.40 -"-)
Cumulative in-game savings: 1.38s

Main improvements come from taking ramps faster and a unique trick in which the author goes slower to get a better time. Look for further info in the author's comments.

Marble Madness is an isometric game similar in its style to Snake Rattle 'n Roll. The objective in these two games is quite different, though. In this game, the player must roll a marble from one point to another. This is, of course, not as easy as it sounds, and certainly not as easy as it looks in this movie.

Aglar improved adelikat and Deign's movie by 5.10 seconds.

A second encode is available using a camera hack to focus on the marble, which subtly alters the gameplay. Also, you can see this movie played back on an actual NES!

- Heavy luck manipulation
- Genre: Racing
Rad is a slang term, short for radical. This movie shows what radical sports is when applied to car driving on NES.

Curiously, the game Rad Racer was made by Square, which is probably best known for its Final Fantasy game series. Quite a different game, this here...

If you decide to play this game, we recommend the Power Glove. It's so bad.

The Adventures of Bayou Billy (1989) contains a trinity of genres: beat 'em up (like Streets of Rage), sniping (like part of Golgo 13), and car racing (like Rad Racer). In the game, "Bayou" Billy West fights his way through Louisiana en route to New Orleans in order to save his kidnapped girlfriend, the luscious Annabelle Lane.

The American version of this game is a lot more difficult than the Japanese one (Mad City), although this video makes it seem easy.

- Aims for in-game time instead of real-time
- Starts from a saved state or SRAM
- Genre: Racing
After completing the story mode of Chocobo Racing nine times, one gains access to the secret character "Invincible". This run, starting from a save state, uses this character in time attack mode to put the other characters to shame.

This run pauses for a few seconds between tracks to show the final track times.

Note that we do not normally accept runs starting from save states. See the Rules for more information.

Anyone with a passing familiarity with the Final Fantasy series should recognise the fine Chocobo, preferred steed of many alternate universes. It's therefore not surprising that a game starring Chocobos and races would be released.

The Japanese version of this game is used due to differences in at least one stage causing the Japanese version to be more difficult.

A high speed racing game featuring rodents from another (nearby) planet. Although the author doesn't classify the velocity potential of the motorcycle as a programming error in the game, the speed at which he rips through the courses may make you wonder.

- Heavy glitch abuse
- Genre: Racing
The objective of Lamborghini: American Challenge is to become the champion of illegal street racing. The player speeds through street traffic, while avoiding speed traps, and makes his way across the finish line first.

Instead, here laranja uses a glitch to gain thousands of dollars by losing a race. Then, he buys the best equipment, enabling him to drive very, very fast. Specifically, he is now able to complete the timed races that are required to beat the game. If you're looking for a run of a racing game that drives 310 MPH on icy roads, look no further—you have it right here!

In this version, the author makes an improvement of over 2 minutes by skipping more of the 2nd race.

- Genre: Racing
Super Mario Kart is the first in a popular series of games starring the Mario cast racing go-karts. This run aims to get record times in all tracks at 150cc difficulty. This is achieved mostly by jumping straight into walls, bottomless pits, and lava, among many other things. Mushrooms are also used frequently due to their mysteriously friction-free propulsion powers. A high amount of wall-bouncing is required.

This run is over a minute and a half faster than the previous published run, due to new exploits of the definition of a lap.

The Flintstones: The Treasure of Sierra Madrock is a game in which you navigate a map that functions like a board game to complete platforming and racing levels. The point of this is to find the Treasure of Sierra Madrock, for whoever finds it will become the Great Poobah of the Water Buffalos.

Normally, Top Gear 2 involves racing through many gruelling tracks across sixteen countries, gradually upgrading one's vehicle until it can become competitive in the top tiers. Here a password is used to skip directly to the final country with a stock vehicle substantially slower than the competition it faces - conditions in which any human player would find it impossible to win. Yet this is no obstacle for perfect reflexes and a great deal of luck.
