Animorphs: Shattered Reality is what's considered as a poorly created video game based on the Scholastic Series written by K. A. Applegate.

Visser Three attempts to create a device that is designed to wipe out the Animorphs life using the Continuum Crystal. However the device failed and the crystal has vanished leaving behind a shattered reality. This reality is where Visser Three has almost completed his world domination.

Watch as Fizztastic morphs and fights their way through to stop Visser Three and restore the reality to what it once was in record time.


The movie file as well as all the encodes have the author's commentary in the form of soft subtitles.

Astérix: The Gallic War is a light-hearted action-strategy hybrid game featuring the popular Asterix comic book characters. You play as Asterix, Obelix and the rest of the Celtic Gaul army as they war with the Romans, led by Caesar, who have seized all but one territory from the Gaul Empire. After gathering your army, you must capture lands adjacent to yours by either clearing a platforming segment, a mini-game like throwing a Roman as far as possible or combat sequences.

wesen runs through the game in record time.

What could pawsibly go wrong?

Bubsy 3D is the fourth game in the Bubsy series, and was its last one for 21 years, until the franchise was revived with a fifth game. Released in 1996, it was one of the first 3D platform games out there, though its poor controls, terrible graphics, and annoying main character lead the game to being considered one of the worst of all time.

Solarplex claws his way through the game in just over 23 minutes, almost making it look fun and playable in the process.

Bugs Bunny & Taz: Time Busters centers around the Looney Tunes stars featured on the title. Daffy Duck has gone back in time with the precious Time Gem as he inadvertently caused damage to the Time Regulator. Granny has tasked Bugs as well her pet Taz to find this precious stone, as well as any gears along the way to stabilize the Time Regulator.

lapogne36 decided that finding the precious stone was more than enough, as he skips to Count Blood Count and finished the game in record time.

Not only was Castlevania: Symphony of the Night the first installment of the Castlevania series on PSX but also the first PSX game to have a published run here. Follow Dracula's son Alucard as he glitches through the castle on a quest to end his father's life.

ForgoneMoose and sockfolder, by corrupting the save data, manage to corrupt the memory and go straight to the ending, totally skipping Richter and the whole second castle.

A 100% run covering the whole castle is also available here. If you prefer the main character to have muscular bare arms and to pray to the rain gods to defeat bosses, you may enjoy the Richter version. If you want to see a run on Replay mode that can skip many cutscenes, see this run. A run with clear save without memory corruption is also available here.

Castlevania Chronicles is a PSX remake of the Japan-only X68000 game Akumajō Dracula (悪魔城ドラキュラ), which is a remake of the first Castlevania. In this game, Simon Belmont is out to defeat the evil Count Dracula.

In this run, the author uses Arrange Mode, as it's more suitable for taking damage to save time (Simon loses less HP when getting hit than in Original Mode). He also abuses a trick that allows him to use a subweapon with a shorter attack animation (jumping and whipping before attacking with the subweapon).

Crash Bandicoot is the first game in a seminal series for the PlayStation.

A second YouTube stream is available with an informative overlay that the author used while creating the run. The latter pair of encodes and torrents provides high quality 480p encodes improved for 3D.

This is the second in a series of seminal platformers for the PlayStation, with very similar gameplay to its predecessor.

A normal run of this game takes a rather long time to complete. However, by using a bug that corrupts the memory when jumping on top of an unbreakable box, the author gathers the crystals necessary to advance to the next set of stages unbelievably quickly, leaving only the bosses to make quick work of.


Note for viewers: In order to be sync-stable, a sound plugin with less than perfect sound quality needed to be used, so do not be alarmed if the sound is not flawless. However, using a different plugin was possible for the introduction and the ending.

Disney's Hercules is based on the animated movie of the same name. You take control of Hercules of Greek mythology, son of the god Zeus and a mortal woman, the legendary hero and strongest man in the world. Your goal is to prove yourself worthy of being admitted to Mount Olympus, the residence of gods, and to become a god yourself. You must commit heroic deeds and overcome various obstacles to show your strength and courage. To make this even more difficult, Hades, the overlord of the dead, is sending fearsome Titans to stop you.

The author, Hoandjzj, uses precision and a few tricks to beat this game in just under 34 minutes.

Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Battle 22 is a fighting game based on the Dragon Ball Z anime series. The "22" refers to the number of characters unlocked at the start of the game (a few more can be unlocked). The game was panned by critics and consumers alike because of its very poor overall quality.

This is the much-anticipated tool-assisted speedrun of the ninth installment in the Final Fantasy series (and the last to be made for the PSX). With its many references to the older games, it's a trip down memory lane for those familiar with the series.

This run completes the famous Excalibur II quest, which requires the player to get to the end of the game in under 12 hours, with over 4 hours and 40 minutes to spare. For more details on the low completion time and the extensive route planning put into this run, we recommend reading the author's comments.

Both the MKVs and YouTube encodes have explanatory subtitles to read while watching.

Note: Due to an emulation error, some areas have rather loud background sound effects (like Alexandria during Vivi's first appearance).


There are two YouTube streams available for this movie. The first is a four-part playlist offering HD video, and the second is all in one stream in 480p.

Final Fantasy VIII (1999) marked a significant departure from earlier Squaresoft titles — it was their first game to have realistically proportioned characters and did away with much of the traditional gameplay systems used by earlier titles. Additionally, it is the first Final Fantasy to focus on a love story.

This is the first multi-disc publication on the site, and is also one of the longest published runs.

In the 22nd century, the scientists, learning the ancient ways of magic, discovered a new technique that made it possible to create artificial beings by mixing the DNA of humans and animals. Those new creatures, known as Gears, had no will of their own and were destined to obey humans forever. However, a Gear named Justice was somehow capable of disobeying the humans and making his own decisions. He organized a rebellion of Gears, that was later repressed by the knights of the Sacred Order. He was thrown into prison, but recently has broken free, and the Order organized a tournament to find out who is capable of hunting him down again. Among the contenders is Sol Badguy, a man with an unclear past, and his rival Ky Kiske, one of the most skilled knights of the order. The conditions of the tournament are, however, very strange. Spilling blood is allowed, and the first prize is the fulfillment of any wish the winner has.

Guilty Gear is a 2D fighting game in which you can play as one of ten very different characters from among Holy Order knights, Armed Air Force soldiers, Mafia members and mad scientists. Each character has his or her own storyline that will be fully revealed during the final showdown. In battles, you can charge up for special attacks as well as perform Deathblow moves, which can kill the opponent instantly. As well as the regular Arcade mode, you can also challenge your friends to a Versus battle.

In this run, Cooljay and N?K choose Ky Kiske and aim for fastest time in Arcade mode using combo moves as well as Destroy, a tough-to-counter move that instant-kills the opponent.

Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone (Or Sorcerer's Stone, if you're in the US) is the first piece of the Harry Potter series, and this movie tie-in game loosely follows the story of the book and movie, surprisingly becoming one of the best-selling PS1 games in the process.

Klonoa: Door to Phantomile is the critically acclaimed first game in the Klonoa series. It features the catlike Klonoa and his friend Huepow, a ring spirit. Together, they go on a journey to investigate a mysterious shipwreck that soon turns into a grand adventure to save the land from a powerful demon.

Like Kirby 64, the game is a 2.5D platformer. Klonoa can only move in two dimensions, but everything is rendered in 3D, allowing the path to curve and objects outside the path to be interacted with. Klonoa can attack by throwing Huepow at enemies and having him return with the enemy. Klonoa will then hold the enemy over his head, which allows him either to throw it another enemy or bounce off of it to jump into the air.

In this run, lapogne36 improves over his previous movie by 10:41.51 minutes thanks to better optimization and glitches found. For more information about these improvements reading the author's submission comments is highly recommended.

The eighth entry in the Mega Man series is very similar to the preceding games, especially its direct predecessor (in light of being the second entry in the franchise released for the PSX, the first being a port of X3). Once again, Mega Man takes on eight Robot Masters and goes on to raid Wily's fortress.

If you're here for the plot, though, you're missing the point - instead enjoy the impossibly fast action and nifty glitch abuse in this run of the longest presently-TASable game in the main series to date.

Note: The credits are missing due to an emulator glitch. For those who are interested in seeing the credits, they can be watched here.

Mega Man returns in this, his second 3D outing. The Blue bomber and his teammate, Roll, must journey to a distant island to recover The Mother Lode, an item that no-one really understands, but that they all believe may hold the key to make their dreams come true, and so everyone is after it.

Unlike past Mega Man titles, Legends 2 also adds RPG elements into the mix, allowing players to talk to villagers and the like. Some may help in finding items, others aid the player with important information about The Mother Lode, and other areas on the island.

In previous Mega Man X games, X would do all the real fighting while Zero would say he was off to destroy power sources and do other such unverifiable tasks. Zero even had the audacity to tell him that one day X would be as strong as him.

This time, X lays back and lets Zero put his money lightsaber where his mouth is, leaving Zero to fight off an entire army as well as Sigma. Zero does such a good job showing how much better he is than X that the series has been transformed for TASVideos to be a Zero series from here on out.

This submission improves the previous run by 12.53 seconds primarily through precise optimization of boss battles.

- Takes damage to save time

- Genre: Platform
Capcom decided to make some easy money, so they recycled parts of Mega Man X5, threw in overly difficult trial-and-error gameplay, made almost everything an obstacle course, and called it Mega Man X6.

This run by Rolanmen1 and FractalFusion plays on the hardest difficulty, Xtreme, and uses both X and Zero. The physics of Zero's sword make it the ideal boss killer, however some bosses have unavoidable invincibility periods, so X is sometimes used to attack during these periods. Some new tricks like duck dashing and saber climbing help save 19 seconds over the previous movie.

If you want to see a run that plays through all of the stages, see this run.

Monkey Magic is a tie-in game for the PSX based on the anime of the same name. It features a monkey named Kongo, who can move about in the typical platformer manner, as well as cast various magic spells.

The author here uses a variety of tricks to skip parts of the game, and fly over other parts. Monkeys don't have wings, but that doesn't seem to matter here.


Note: PSXjin performs very poorly emulating this game, and significant sound glitches appear throughout.

Most dominoes wait forever, just waiting to be toppled over. But no one can stop Mr. Domino - he has to run around everywhere, causing mayhem everywhere he goes. Help Mr. Domino use the domino effect to trigger tricks and traps on unsuspecting objects and people!

No One Can Stop Mr. Domino is a puzzle game which sees you controlling the titular Mr. Domino (or one of his friends, if you prefer) as he zips around levels which can be best described as a racetrack. As the title suggests, you can't actually stop Mr. Domino - however, you can guide him around the track, speed him up and slow him down. He'll need to dodge obstacles as he aims to activate "tricks" which are placed around the board.

In this run, Spikestuff improves the his previous effort by 4.75 seconds and Mr. Domino proves that once again, he cannot be stopped.

This is the condensed version of a 100% run, in which only one (required) Mudokon is saved. This movie should be perfect for those who don't care about the well-being of the Mudokon race and just want to see some Oddworld parkour. Naturally, this run gets the bad ending.

One Piece Mansion (ワンピースマンション Wan Piisu Manshon) is a strategy video game that was developed and published by Capcom for the PlayStation in 2001. It is unrelated to the popular anime and manga series One Piece.

The storyline of One Piece Mansion revolves around a successful landlord called Polpo. At the start of the game, Polpo's little sister is kidnapped by the owner of a rival mansion, Chocola. It is the player's job to battle through levels meeting Chocola's objectives and to eventually free Polpo's little sister.

Pandemonium follows the adventuring duo of Nikki and Fargus through the land of Lyr. After they accidentally cast a magic spell that destroys a whole town, they set out to find the Wishing Engine to return the town back to normal. Their journey through this 2.5D platforming game features fast-paced gameplay and a number of unique powerups including animal transformations.

Watch for the author's careful use of damage boosts and speed management to fly through this game.

When a villain known only as Mr. Dark appears, trouble brews in Rayman's world. Mr. Dark captures the Toons - the source of light - and Rayman's friends. Without the light, evil creatures begin to roam, making the world unsafe for everyone. It's up to you, as Rayman, to free your friends and put an end to Mr. Dark's dastardly schemes!

Rayman is a side-scrolling platformer starring the titular Rayman, a big-nosed chap with no arms or legs. Rayman can jump and use his hair to hover for a short period of time. He can also attack by throwing his fists, or winding up his fists for a more powerful punch. He can occasionally find special powerups that grant him unlimited flying power, giving him the ability to navigate through tricky mazes.

scrimpeh and Got4n tear through this difficult game with a variety of glitches and physics exploits. For more details on how these glitches work, we recommend reading the authors' comments for information about this run.

Note that any% is the same as 100% for this game, as Rayman requires all the Toons to unlock the final battle with Mr Dark.

Rockman Complete Works: Rockman 2 is a port of the Japanese version of Mega Man 2 to the PS1. Notable changes include fast weapon switching (though one still has to go to the pause menu to select Item 1-3), bug fixes (notably no horizontal zipping) and a Navi Mode, which includes an updated HUD, hints for beginners and a partially re-arranged soundtrack (by inputting an input code when selecting Navi Mode).

While this TAS by paosidufygth seems slower than his previous attempt, it is in fact faster by about 12 seconds. This is because the emulator used, PSXjin, assumes a framerate of 60 FPS while the site assumes the PSX framerate to be the proper 59.292 FPS.

- Uses hardest difficulty

In Samurai Shodown II, players take on the role of one of fifteen warriors, fighting their way through the land to defeat Rashojin Mizuki, who was thrown into the sea when she was a little girl and has since become a servant of the dark god Ambrosia. N?K destroys all of the opponents using Haohmaru, the main hero in each game of the Samurai Shodown series.

The Samurai Shodown series differs from other well-known fighting games of its time in a couple of ways. First, all characters can use a weapon, usually a sword (or occasional animal friends, like a dog or a falcon). Second, the games focus more on hard hits instead of combos, showing a slowdown effect when powerful strikes are landed.

Suzuki Bakuhatsu (鈴木爆発) is a bomb disposal game where the player must disassemble and disarm increasingly complicated and bizarre explosives. Given a set of tools – initially only a screwdriver and nipper; later also a wrench (spanner), allen wrench (hex key), and adhesive tape – the player must disarm each bomb within a specific time limit. The player can rotate and pan all around the object, looking for places to use different tools, but must always be mindful of the timer. If it runs out, the bomb explodes and it's game over. Additionally, there's no pausing once the timer starts, so quick thinking is critical!

Tekken Force, a paramilitary organization protecting the Mishima karate fighters, is nearly obliterated by the mighty Ogre. Heihachi Mishima's only hope is his grandson Jin Kazama, who lives with his mother Jun, unaware of his legacy. When the Ogre attacks his home and presumably kills his mother, Jin seeks out his grandfather and learns the martial arts of the family. On his nineteenth birthday, Heihachi announces the King of the Iron Fist Tournament 3, hoping that Jin will use the opportunity take out the meddlesome Ogre.

Tekken 3, like its predecessors, is a versus fighting game. New features include prominently featured side-stepping, allowing characters to retreat into the background and back during fights, more combo throws, fifteen more characters, and reduced jumping capabilities to allow for more realistic combat. Also included are two minigames: Tekken Force, a beat-em-up stage that unlocks a new character, and Tekken Ball, a beach volleyball variant where characters are hurt by the ball.

While this movie by Spikestuff seems slower than his previous TAS, it is in fact faster by 0.03 seconds in in-game time. This is because the game improperly lags during the True Ogre fight in the emulator used in the previous publication (PSXjin). This run was done on BizHawk's PSXHawk core called Octoshock, which doesn't have the aforementioned issue. Not much has changed otherwise.

In Tomb Raider III, Lara Croft is on a journey to gather the four pieces of meteorite located across the world. To find these pieces, Lara must explore varied settings ranging from enigmatic ruins to Antarctica. There is a heavy emphasis on puzzle solving, leading the game to more closely resemble the original Tomb Raider than the more action oriented Tomb Raider II. New to this game is a sprint ability and a stamina meter that allows Lara to run faster and perform new moves.

Join Woops as he jumps, shoots, flips and solves the puzzles that await him in his journey.

The final in-game time screen is bugged and fails to take into account the London level. 50:08 is the proper ingame time when calculated manually.

Electronic Arts brings Blizzard's best-selling strategy game to the PlayStation and Saturn in this release. They've combined all the missions from Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness and its expansion pack, Beyond the Dark Portal, into one package.

You take charge of either the humans and elves or the orcish hordes for control of the lands of Azeroth. Eventually you work through the dark portal and into the orcs' homeland. You take charge of either side as you work through more than 20 missions per side in the fight for survival.

New features for the console release include an auto-build option, where you can set a queue of units to be produced, and the ability to select sixteen units at a time instead of the PC's nine.

This run by Flip plays through the Humans' Tides of Darkness campaign.

Electronic Arts brings Blizzard's best-selling strategy game to the PlayStation and Saturn in this release. They've combined all the missions from Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness and its expansion pack, Beyond the Dark Portal, into one package.

You take charge of either the humans and elves or the orcish hordes for control of the lands of Azeroth. Eventually you work through the dark portal and into the orcs' homeland. You take charge of either side as you work through more than 20 missions per side in the fight for survival.

New features for the console release include an auto-build option, where you can set a queue of units to be produced and the ability to select sixteen units at a time instead of the PC's nine.

This run by Flip plays through the Humans' Beyond the Dark Portal campaign.

For a run of the Orc Expansion by the same author, see this run.

Award - Lucky TAS of 2017
Yu-Gi-Oh! Forbidden Memories is a card based video game. The rules are one of the simplified prototypes made while developing the trading card game from the manga. The player controls Yugi, who pieces together the millenium puzzle, travels to ancient Egypt, and defeats evil.

In this run, GenericMadScientist barely uses Fusion to overpower the enemies unlike the previous run and manipulates his way to get Meteor B. Dragon early, then beat most duels in 2 turns, thereby saving 12 minutes and 58.68 seconds.

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.
