Earthworm Jim is the unlikely story of an earthworm who finds a suit with super powers and goes on a rampage to protect Earth and his puppy Peter(?). The game follows the absurd spirit of the story: for example, the suit can use Jim for a whip, there is a boss who attacks by vomiting fish, you fight lawyers in hell, and in one level, you swing on bungee cords made out of snot.

This movie improves the first run of this game, which was done on the Genesis version, by 16.94 seconds. However, the actual improvement is much larger since the Special Edition contains additional levels that are also played through in this TAS.

Heart of the Alien is a direct sequel to the SNES game Out of This World starring Buddy, the alien ally of the main character in the previous game. After flying the pterodactyl to the ruins of his village and leaving his friend in a bed to rest, Buddy begins a search for the red-eyed alien responsible for the destruction of his village and the imprisonment of his people.

In this run, Aqfaq uses tool-assisted precision and glitches to finish this game in a little more than 5 minutes.

Note: Some scenes have graphic violence. Viewer discretion is advised.

- Aims for in-game time instead of real-time
- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Platform
Prince of Persia is a 2D platformer that is commonly regarded as a progenitor of the cinematic platform genre. Rather than following the more common jump-and-run mechanics, it focuses on careful advancement through fairly complex levels, emphasizing the protagonist's vulnerability and survival aspect. Rotoscoping technique is used to give more realism to the animation of the characters' movements.

This run by Challenger, done on the Sega CD port of the game, defeats Jaffar in record time.

Sonic the Hedgehog CD was developed to showcase a new Genesis/Mega Drive peripheral, the Sega CD.

The game is markedly different than other Sonic games; aside from "improved" graphics and sounds, each level has 2 to 4 alternate versions that correspond to different time periods. Sonic can move between them to affect the gameplay and ending.

This run is 31.53 seconds faster in in-game time than nitsuja's run thanks to various optimization and minor route changes. For more information on the improvements, please read the author's submission notes.

There are two sets of encode files, the first recorded with the American region music and the second with the Japanese region music.

There is also a run of Sonic the Hedgehog Megamix played as Sonic on his SegaCD version.

We also have movies in Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Sonic 3 & Knuckles.

Sonic the Hedgehog Megamix (commonly shortened to Sonic Megamix) is a work-in-progress multiperson disassembly modification of the original Sonic the Hedgehog videogame for the Sega Mega Drive / Genesis, developed by Team Megamix and more recently moved to the Sega Mega-CD.

The game features the ability to play as one of five different characters: Sonic the Hedgehog, Mighty the Armadillo, Shadow the Hedgehog, Miles "Tails" Prower, and Knuckles the Echidna. It is an extensive reworking of the original game, featuring new art, music, abilities, layouts, and other things.

The authors complete the game in record time using glitches such as "zips" to gain super fast speeds.

We also have movies in Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic the Hedgehog CD and Sonic 3 & Knuckles.

Kyle Reese clearly had a difficult time trying to save Sarah Connor in the hit movie The Terminator. But when the Sega CD video game tie-in's difficulty is set to "Super!", you wonder just how the hell Kyle made it two steps before dying. It really makes you feel like Kyle must have felt in a hopeless future where everything can kill within a few seconds frames. You know that a game is too hard when even the TAS looks like it is struggling just to keep the character alive.
