- Takes damage to save time
- Heavy glitch abuse
- Genre: Platform
Arumana no Kiseki (アルマナの奇跡, Miracle of Almana) is an FDS-only platformer with an interesting grappling hook mechanic. Perhaps not surprisingly for a rather complicated mechanic like this one, it can be abused heavily to clip through walls and most of several levels.

This run is an update of mmbossman's movie with improved boss fights, implementation of the improvement missed in the previous movie, and better control over scrolling in level 3.

- Uses death to save time
- Genre: Adventure
- Genre: Puzzle
Eggerland is a predecessor of the NES Adventures of Lolo games, and in certain ways, it has much more features than Adventures of Lolo 1.

This movie abuses a couple of the game bugs in a surprising way.

Note that this is a Famicom Disk System game. Read What is FDS for more information.

Also note that this movie is about 42 seconds longer than the previous movie. This is due to the inaccurate (shorter) FDS load times emulated by famtasia.

- Genre: Shooter
Otocky was created by Toshio Iwai in 1987 and was only released in Japan for the Famicom Disk System. It is best described as a musical side-scrolling shoot 'em up where the primary weapon is a ball which, when fired in one of eight directions, plays different musical notes on the primary instrument quantized to the beat of the background music.

Needless to say, when such a weapon is put into the hands of a tool-assisted speedrunner, you might just find yourself humming along to the end result.

- Heavy glitch abuse
- Genre: Platform
This game is Super Mario Bros., the original, but on the Famicom Disk System. It is much similar to the ROM version of the game, except for one minor difference that is demonstrated here.

The -1 stage is completely different. In the NES and Unisystem versions, the -1 stage repeats infinitely and cannot be completed, but in FDS, it can be completed, and then come -2 and -3.

The -3 stage in FDS is a castle level, and completing it ends the game, even though it says "princess is in another castle". The princess is not seen in the ending, but she is sighted twice in the -1 stage, as shown in this movie.

This movie is 84 frames faster than the previous one due to the use of a "cheap trick".

- Uses warps

- Genre: Platform
Mario has eaten too many poisonous mushrooms and as a result, decided to go on a furious killing spree. In this berserker state he has also gained the new secret ability to walk through walls at will.

Wondering how some tricks work? Information is available at Super Mario Bros. Tricks page.

This movie is 27 frames faster than the previous version due to new improvements in 1-2 and 8-4.


This is the real Super Mario Bros 2. It was never officially released in the USA and Europe. It was later ported to SNES, and released as "Lost Levels" on Super Mario All-stars.

FDS means Famicom Disk System. It was a Japanese disk-unit version of the NES.

- Uses a suboptimal character
- Uses warps
- Heavy glitch abuse
- Genre: Platform
This is a TAS of the Japanese Super Mario Bros. 2, a.k.a. 'The Lost Levels', using Mario's brother Luigi. He jumps higher than Mario, but acts slower in many ways. However, the movie is in no way worse than the Mario version - some new creative solutions have been found.

This is an 110 frame improvement over the previous movie by Phil.

Award - Glitchy TAS of 2015
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.

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.
