Bloody Wolf is an Arcade port of a Heavy Barrel-esque game. The goal is to rescue the president, and then rescue the man who rescued the president, due to insufficient leg room in the rescue helicopter.

In this run, the author bunny hops through the game, throws grenades at everything, and dies for no apparent reason.

Award - PCE TAS of 2010
Bonk, a young caveman with a big noggin, intended to become the TurboGrafx-16's flagship character, starred in three games, Bonk's Adventure, Bonk's Revenge, and Bonk III.

Since the system was generally considered a commercial failure, the first two games were ported to other systems like the Nintendo Entertainment System and the Game Boy, and two original games in the series were even made on the Super Nintendo.

In his debut, Bonk's Adventure, you play as him on his quest to rescue Princess Za, a small pink and cute little reptile, from the evil King Drool, a huge and ugly tyronnosaurus.

Jerfo completes this quest in only 24 minutes, by making Bonk fly over most stages while he spins himself in the air, bouncing himself on enemies. Make sure you're ready to hear that spinning sound over and over again!

Bonk's Revenge is the second game in a popular PCE/Turbographx 16 platforming series. Bonk is a caveman with a giant noggin he willingly uses as a weapon against his enemies. He can also break the laws of physics by using his enormous head as leverage to glide in midair.

This run features all the trappings of a prehistoric blockbuster adventure, including fire breathing, jungle platforming, raging on huge dinosaurs before they know what hit them, and raw meat.

In this movie, EZGames69 & Memory improve the previous run by FuzZerd by 1:11.22.

In Dragon Egg!, the heroine carries around a portable dragon which, after many power-ups, becomes a lot less portable to the point where the heroine is portable instead.

This is the author's second publication of Dragon Egg!, this time using the new BizHawk emulator.

Most of the 24.61 second improvement comes through a new trick that allows the heroine to simply fly through the auto-scroller level, ignoring the slow paced log.

Dungeon Explorer is based off of Gauntlet, but adds a plot, bosses, magic spells and RPG elements. Notably, it also one-ups Gauntlet by allowing for five players.

The author races through the dungeons with all five players, making short work of bosses. The five characters were selected for their high starting agility, and include a fighter (blue), a warlock (purple), an elf (green), a bard (orange), and a thief (red).

Also, the only exit that matters is the last one used by a player, and the author uses this extensively to use the fastest character, the thief, to run when an earlier exit is available for the other characters to use.


A technical commentary with extra features by the author is available here.

Award - Exotic platforms TAS of 2016
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.

Kato-chan Ken-chan is a gem of a PCE game made by Hudson. Often abbreviated as "Kato-Ken" in Japan, this game is derived from a Japanese TV program, "Kato-chan Ken-chan gokigen TV". The main characters are Cha Kato (Kato-chan) and Ken Shimura (Ken-chan), who are famous Japanese comedians. One particularly distinguishing feature of the game is the ability to attack enemies with farts!

In this run, the author uses Ken-chan, though you will also see Kato-chan appear from time to time to be a nuisance to Ken-chan.

Keith Courage in Alpha Zones stars a hero who suspiciously looks like Gunstar Red. He is a part of the alliance N.I.C.E. (Nations of International Citizens for Earth), whose current 'mission' is to defeat B.A.D. (Beastly Alien Dudes) and bring peace to the world.

This TAS features speedy completion by using the inept enemies as boosts to speed through the underworld levels. Only 2 of the weapon upgrades are ever collected and all of the story is completely skipped.

There are also 2 cases of using an instant kill level hazard as a shortcut.

This game should probably have a seizure warning of some sort.

Armed with water bombs, he can soak enemies and ride waves to gain a bit of speed.

Monster Pro Wrestling is a Japanese game in which you choose a monster and battle other monsters in turn-based battles. It is notable for its humorously nonsensical battle animations, such as the appearance of a dozen heads on screen and death blows literally tearing monsters apart.

In this movie, Aqfaq uses well-planned strategy and a fair amount of luck manipulation to defeat each monster in the fewest rounds possible. For more information, check out his detailed submission text.

Ninja Spirit began life as an arcade game and since then has received many ports, including a Game Boy version and this version. It would be a stock platform game but for the ability to have up to two 'spirits' which behave like the options from Gradius.

This run is played on Arcade mode, where the character dies in one hit and bosses are stronger; the other available mode (appropriately titled PCE mode) allows taking more than one hit and is overall easier. People familiar with the game should be able to appreciate the difference, as Arcade mode is extremely challenging.

Doc, the creator of the two cyborgs Arnold and Sonya, has been kidnapped as a prelude to an alien invasion. It's up to the two of them to stop the invasion and rescue their creator.

The author uses an unconventional mode of transport in this run. A dual-player charge shot that is done incorrectly causes the players to be ricocheted around the screen. This provides a faster form of movement than walking, when aimed correctly!

Splatterhouse is the first game in the series, but only the second game to appear on a home console (after Splatterhouse: Wanpaku Graffiti on the Famicom), which was later continued on the Sega Genesis.

Rick and his girlfriend Jennifer enter West Mansion (known as Splatterhouse) to study Dr. West's parapsychology teachings for a school project. After a flash of lightning and a scream, Jennifer is gone, and Rick is left wearing the Terror Mask, which gives the wearer great strength.

Samsara slides for the most part through the demonic enemy forces in 12 minutes and 15.72 seconds.


NOTE: The downloadable encodes feature two video streams. The first (default) stream shows the Japanese version, whereas the second one shows the American version, which had all religious references removed and the colour of the mask changed to red (and its form changed).

Likewise, there are two YouTube streams available: The first stream features the Japanese version, while the second one features the American version.
