- Aims for in-game time instead of real-time
- Genre: Platform
- Genre: Puzzle
Award - Computer TAS of 2013
Braid is a famous indie platform game with some unique puzzlework. It was originally released on Xbox Live Arcade before being ported to other platforms. A major feature of the game is the player's unlimited ability to reverse time and "rewind" actions, even after dying. The game itself was intended to be an artful deconstruction of traditional video game concepts.

Many tricks are used to complete the speedrun mode in an astounding 20:11.17 according to the internal timer; see the author's comments for more information.


If you understand French pretty well, you may be interested in watching the special episode of Speed Game, featuring commentary from Coeurdevandale and the author of this TAS, keylie. The tricks used are also explained there.

Eryi's Action is a sidescrolling platformer where Eryi must charge through a series of devious traps and enemies in order to stop Farta and recover her melon. There are so many of these traps, in fact, that the developers designated the game a "trapformer". In many cases, the most obvious path through an area does not work, and only clever thinking or trial-and-error will allow Eryi to proceed safely.

Aside from the traps, the game is designed to be very similar to Super Mario Bros.: enemies are defeated by being jumped upon, a flagpole must be reached at the end of each stage, and there are even mushrooms (which can be used as trampolines).

In this run, Bernka uses tool assistance to barely steer Eryi away from many traps and even fool several others, chaining mushroom and enemy jumps and moving precisely to beat the game in the fastest time possible.

For a movie of a similar but much less polished game, see the Syobon Action TAS.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Platform
Rosenkreuzstilette (ローゼンクロイツスティレッテ) is a platform game published by independent Japanese studio [erka:es]. Gameplay resembles a Mega Man clone, with Spiritia collecting various weapons from each boss defeated, and alternate protagonist Grolla playing more like Zero from the Mega Man X and Mega Man Zero series.

See how many things from different Mega Man games you can spot while watching this! Stage by stage notes are in the author's comments.

This run is a 22 second improvement over the previous movie by Bernka thanks to better optimization.

This movie uses Grolla. For more action, we also have a Spiritia movie by the same author.

- Heavy glitch abuse
- Genre: Platform
Spelunky is a cave exploration / treasure-hunting game inspired by classic platform games and rogue-likes, where the goal is to grab as much treasure from the cave as possible. Every time you play the cave's layout is supposed to be different, but now the Spelunker guy decides to make sure the cave is in his favor by finding everything he needs in no time before zipping his way to the end.

This run aims to reach and defeat the final boss as fast as possible by (ab)using the unpredictable teleporter and a generous supply of bombs.

Syobon Action, also known as "Cat Mario", is an extremely difficult Mario-clone platformer that usually takes many tries to complete.

In this run, happy_mario and TEHH_083 aim to complete the game as fast as possible — and even faster than before, improving the previous run of this game by two seconds.

- Uses death to save time
- Major skip glitch
- Heavy glitch abuse
- Genre: Action
- Genre: Puzzle
In VVVVVV, the player controls Captain Viridian, who is lost in an alternate dimension, in search of the missing members of the spaceship's crew. Instead of jumping, the player is able to control the direction of gravity, allowing the captain to flip between the floors and ceilings of the environment. The graphical style of the game is heavily influenced by the Commodore 64.

This movie by Masterjun utilizes a glitch that increments the current game state to trick the game into warping to the end cutscene. The glitch is triggered by pressing the Escape key to bring up the quit prompt while a dialog box is onscreen. Masterjun also improves the previous run by 0.30 seconds by using general optimizations in movement and key-presses.

See the submission comments for more details. There is also a run in which the game is played more as intended.

- Genre: Adventure
Yume Nikki (ゆめにっき, lit. Dream Diary) is a surrealistic adventure game by indie Japanese developer Kikiyama. The game was created using RPG Maker 2003, but has few role-playing game (RPG) elements. Players explore the dreams of a hikikomori character named Madotsuki (窓付き, lit. windowed). The initial version of the game was released on June 26, 2004, with subsequent updates over time, the last occurring in 2007.

This run by poco_cpp extensively utilizes a glitch involving a desk chair to allow Madotsuki to move at 8X her normal speed, allowing the 24 effects to be collected in record time.
