Coca Cola Kid is a platformer starring Coca Cola's Japanese mascot of the 90s. On his way through the levels, the kid can make use of a skateboard, but has to continue by foot if knocked off. Enemies can be defeated by kicks and flying kicks. Unsurprisingly, energy is restored by collecting cans of a certain soft drink. Its gameplay bears a very strong resemblance to Sonic the Hedgehog, which is no coincidence, since it's built off of the Sonic the Hedgehog engine and was made by Sega.

Samsara, ars4326 and dekutony rush to the end in good old Sonic-- ahem, Coca Cola Kid fashion in 8 minutes and 26.47 seconds.

Ninja Gaiden for Game Gear is quite unlike the NES version or even its cousin on the Master System. It has a similar (but simpler) feel as the Master System version, but has the wall climbing element of the NES game. But like the others, it has ninjas. And ninjas are cool.

The key to a TAS of this game is special weapon maintenance. Bosses receive double the damage when hit with special weapons, so managing the weapons used and conserving force are critical to optimizing this game.

This movie improves the previous run by 16.39 seconds.

Sonic Blast, known as G Sonic (Gソニック) in Japan, is a platforming game for the Sega Game Gear released in November 1996. A similarly titled game, Sonic 3D Blast, was released in the same month for Sega's Genesis and Saturn consoles, though the games had different gameplay, plot, and a separate development team, as this game was developed by Aspect, whereas Sonic 3D Blast was a joint venture between Traveller's Tales and Sonic Team.

Challenger completes the game in record time.

The Sonic games for the Sega Master System and the Game Gear are much less well known than their Genesis/Mega Drive counterparts and have a reputation for being quite challenging, especially in handheld form. You'd never know this from the speed Sonic blazes through the game here.

Unlike later 8-bit Sonic games, there are significant differences in levels between the SMS version and the Game Gear version; here the latter is used primarily for faster boss fights.

This run improves the predecessor movie by 2.29 real-time seconds, and by 1:22.29 minutes of total in-level time. What makes the real-time difference so small is the larger time bonuses. To compensate for that, the author has made an encode that cuts out the bonus screen and the level title cards.

If you like this run, also check out the run for SMS Sonic 2.

Sonic Triple Trouble is the sequel to Sonic Chaos, they are also known in Japan as Sonic & Tails 1 and 2. Long story short, Dr. Robotnik is after the chaos emeralds again and convinced Knuckles that Sonic and Tails want to steal them, again... But here comes a new challenger! Nack the weasel is here and wants to, guess what, steal the chaos emeralds too! (but just because they are shiny and might sell well on eBay)

Wendy Witchcart is an old human witch who rides around in a specialized rail cart on an island that she claims as her own, and is the main villain who turns the islanders into crystals. Miles "Tails" Prower, better known as Sonic the Hedgehog's sidekick, is afraid of seeing a world filled with the witch's rails and decides to stop her on his own.

While Sonic collects rings to protect himself, Tails carries a special ring that he can throw like a boomerang or grab things with. Since collected crystals cost time on the score tally screen, the author simply ignores them all.

While this movie appears to be slower by 0.20 seconds than the previous publication, it is in fact faster by around a third of a second. This is because the site now assumes the proper framerate for Game Gear movies, while it assumed a flat 60 FPS back when the previous movie was published.
