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.

You probably know Nancy Drew. She's a popular fictional character who has a knack for solving (and attracting) all sorts of mysteries. Basically a Mary Sue, being rich, handsome, immensely talented and leading an exciting life.

As the game begins, she comes to a hotel owned by her friend's friend where accidents have been happening, and rumors even say that it's a ghost behind all the mayhem, perhaps exacting some sort of revenge from beyond the grave. But eventually we find out the problem is a much simpler and common one instead, human greed, and that there's really nothing supernatural going on in the hotel, with the exception of Nancy Drew herself, who knows solutions to puzzles without ever finding them and who causes other strange stuff to happen as well.

- Genre: Storybook
This is a TAS of the game Deja Vu 2, the sequel to the popular Deja Vu for NES. This time, however, you do remember who you are, and you also remember that you owe some mobster a lot of money.

The goal in the game, however, is not to get the money - instead you're supposed to frame the mobsters. You do this by planting certain items in desks and stuff like that.

Overall, this movie is a lot like the other storybook TAS: super-fast menu navigation, a lot of route planning, and the general feeling of "What in the world is going on in this movie?"

- Genre: Storybook
A storybook game like Shadowgate and Uninvited.

In this one you star as Ace Harding, a detective who wakes up having no idea who or where he is. As the game progresses you discover that you have been framed for a crime you didn't commit, and must find a way to clear your name.

This, the fifth submission of this game by the same author, is a 35.45 second improvement over the author's previous attempt. Most of the improvement comes from using a "leave bullet" bug, as detailed in the submission text.

See the Déjà Vu GameFAQs page for more information about this game (we recommend Mr. Kelly R. Flewin's Déjà Vu Speed Guide).

This is a game similar to Shadowgate and Deja Vu. In it, you wake up in a crashed car just outside a strange mansion, desperate to explore the ghost-ridden building to find and rescue your missing sister.

The speed at which the author manipulates the menus is impressive. This is an 4.12 second improvement over the author's previous movie.

- Heavy luck manipulation
- Genre: Storybook
- Genre: Strategy
Where in Time Is Carmen Sandiego? is an educational game created by Brøderbund Software and ported to the NES by Konami in 1991. Travel through time to find clues and collect warrants in order to capture Carmen Sandiego and her henchmen! The game focuses on teaching geography and history as you go to each time period, find the clues and arrest the crooks.

As in the "no save corruption" run of Pokémon: Blue Version, the enormous amount of luck manipulation needed to optimally play this game was calculated entirely by a bot written by the author of this run, Bobo the King. For more on this impressive program, check out the author's very creative submission text.

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.
