Alex "Action Man" Mann makes a stop over onto the Game Boy Color where once again he must stop the world from falling into the clutches of the evil Dr. X. The player takes control of Action Man as he travels through seven different levels ranging from jungles to the Arctic, battling a sizable army of robots with a variety of weapons and battle suits in search of Base X and stopping Dr. X from launching a terrifying new weapon that could very well bring an end to the world.

The game is a standard side-scrolling action platformer where the player advances through the levels by shooting at enemies and jumping over obstacles. Along the way, Action Man can find new items and suits which allow him to discover alternate routes, new levels, and even more items.

In this TAS, Mothrayas runs and jumps through the game, carefully choosing items and paths and using a few tricks to finish the game as fast as possible.

Blaster Master - Enemy Below looks, sounds, and feels like a fanmade version of the top-notch NES platformer, Blaster Master, but it is actually a bona fide legitimate sequel on the Game Boy Color put forth by Sunsoft.

In this movie the author abuses many glitches to take massive shortcuts in the game (including skipping an entire level). He also intentionally kills off the character several times in order to avoid backtracking.

In Catwoman, the titular Batman villainess is spun off into her own game. Talia tries to hire Catwoman to steal a crystal skull, but Catwoman decides to keep it for herself, not knowing Ra's al Ghul plans to use it to destroy Gotham.

Catwoman has dozens of moves to help her navigate and fight her way through nine levels filled with enemies and platforms. She can attack with her claws, jump off walls, flip, grab ledges and swing with her whip, like in Bionic Commando. She also has a stealth option, allowing her to disappear into the background of a level and sneak along silently.

In this run, TehBerral plays through the game in 24 minutes and 46.23 seconds using a series of time-saving tricks.

Croc 2 is the sequel to the successful Croc: Legend of the Gobbos.

As expected, the Game Boy Color "port" doesn't play much like the PlayStation or PC versions, but it does provide some interesting gameplay. Look out for the large shortcuts made possible by breaking the game's physics engine.

John Romero's Daikatana is set in 2455 AD, in a dystopian future brought on by the actions of a man named Kage Mishima, who now rules the earth. However, this future is actually an alternate timeline created by the mystical Daikatana sword, which allows the one who wields it to travel through time.

Devil Island, also known as Emo Dao (惡魔島), is an action role-playing bootleg game for the Game Boy Color developed by Vast Fame. It copies Konami's Japan-exclusive NES game, Getsu Fuuma Den, with its gameplay. The game's aesthetics are styled after the Castlevania franchise, also by Konami. Much like Castlevania, the player's default weapon is a whip, except it can be held down for rapid fire.

This run abuses the demo mode of the game to get all items and reach the end of the game early, which is why it is so short. See the author's comments for some explanations.

Donkey Kong 5 is an unlicensed game created by Sintax. A dragon named Lombado has abducted Sodoma, a fairy responsible for taking care of the world's plants. In her absence, the plants all wither, leaving Donkey Kong without his beloved bananas. The starving ape decides to go on a journey to save Sodoma and all of the plants.

The game features content "borrowed" from many other games. See how many game "references" you can spot!

Enix decided to hop on the monster collection/battling bandwagon with Dragon Warrior Monsters, in which the main character, Terry, makes friends with various monsters from previous Dragon Warrior games so he can win the Starry Night Tournament and rescue his sister.

This is a TAS of the game Deja Vu 2, the sequel to the popular Deja Vu for NES. This time, however, you do remember who you are, and you also remember that you owe some mobster a lot of money.

The goal in the game, however, is not to get the money - instead you're supposed to frame the mobsters. You do this by planting certain items in desks and stuff like that.

Overall, this movie is a lot like the other storybook TAS: super-fast menu navigation, a lot of route planning, and the general feeling of "What in the world is going on in this movie?"

In the first Harry Potter game for the Game Boy Color, the story of Harry's first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is told in the form of a traditional role-playing game.

Playing as Harry, one advances through the plot of the book and the movie by fulfilling quests, battling monsters and gaining experience and levels.

Combat is turn-based, with Harry being able to use a variety of spells against various critters and other enemies. In addition, card combinations of Famous Witches and Wizards Collector's Cards can be used to produce powerful magical effects. These cards can be found all over the freely explorable Hogwarts. Potions that refill stamina and magic points can be found, bought or mixed by Harry himself, but only with the right ingredients.

As in other Potter games, Harry also competes for house points for Gryffindor, hoping to win the House Cup in the end.

The game features several mini-games that, once found in the main game, can also be accessed from the main menu.


Note: The original encodes contain footage that deserves an epilepsy warning for it's flickering in the latter part of the run. So we provide a cleaned up version of the run in the alternate encodes.

Keitai Denjū Telefang (携帯電獣テレファング) is a series of video games produced by Natsume and published by Smilesoft. The games are monster-battling games, where the player contacts various creatures using a cell phone-like device called a D-Shot in order to get them to battle the foes he or she will encounter. The name of the series derives from Keitai, which is Japanese for "cell phone," since phoning creatures is an integral part of the game, and "fang," to symbolize the various beasts involved.

Passwords (phone numbers) can be used to obtain very strong Denjuu, but are not used in this run. There's also a way to beat this game insanely fast with the use of major glitches, like this other movie we have for this game does, but those aren't used in this run either.

Set before the events of the first two NES games, the player gets to play as Christopher Belmont, one of Simon's ancestors.

Unlike most Castlevania games, there are no sub-weapons, and the player loses whip upgrades upon damage. Additionally, the Castlevania Game Boy games, unlike their NES counterparts, have ropes and moving spike walls instead of stairs.

This game, being one of the first to come out for the Game Boy, was programmed poorly, exhibiting lots of lag, and also suffers from poor jump controls. Seizing upon that, the level designers took it upon themselves to create fake difficulty by requiring pixel perfect jumps throughout.

In this movie, arukAdo eliminates lag by killing enemies as they appear on screen, destroying candles, collecting coins, and ducking when possible. In addition to that, luck is manipulated via pausing to prevent certain enemies from appearing or to force bosses to enter attack range sooner.

Note: The Konami Collection version was used instead of the original, as it lags a bit less, and is also fully colored.

In this special episode of Looney Tunes, Bugs, Daffy, Tweety, Porky, Taz, Speedy Gonzales, and the Road Runner decide to rip off popular games such as Atomic Runner, Sonic the Hedgehog & Gradius. They do this by going through this Sunsoft classic as fast as possible so that they don't die from all of the ripoffs.

This has led to even stranger results than the old run, clearing five and a half minutes thanks to a glitch that allows for skipping several levels.

Lucky Luke is a game based on a famous comic series created by Belgian cartoonist Maurice De Bevere. The gun-slinging Dalton brothers have escaped from jail again and are up to no good, and it's up to the titular cowboy to catch the criminals and lock them back up.

While the author, TheKDX7, finishes the platforming stages as fast as possible, he also adds in some entertainment to the long autoscrollers to make them more interesting.

This is an improvement of 388 frames over the second Lucky Luke TAS. There is also a run by the same author which achieves 100% completion.

Lucky Luke: Desperado Train is one of a number of video game adaptations of the Lucky Luke comic franchise, an Old West themed parody popular in Europe.

Mega Man Xtreme is a port of the popular Mega Man X series to the Game Boy Color. It adapts the Mavericks and their stages from that series and wraps it into gameplay more suited for the portable console.

Here, FractalFusion speeds through the game and exploits glitches to create a movie worthy of what we have come to expect from Mega Man at TASVideos.

This movie is played from a savestate that has unlocked "Xtreme mode", which allows you to play all of the levels in one game. Runs that start from a savestate are not normally allowed; see the Movie Rules for more on this.


Note: This movie requires VBA rerecording v19, v21 or v22.

Mega Man Xtreme 2, like its predecessor game Mega Man Xtreme, pretty much copies content and bosses from the main line of Mega Man X games. However, Xtreme 2 gets ideas and designs from a much wider range of games, ranging all the way from Mega Man X to Mega Man X5. For instance, there is a Parts system allowing upgrades to your characters. However, there is also an original story (though it's still as silly as many Mega Man storylines), along with some new stage designs and bosses.

In this game, both X and Zero are playable. Zero is mostly used at the beginning and ending of the game, while X is used mostly in the middle of the game. Both characters get damage-boosting parts from the shop to defeat bosses incredibly quickly. For more information, see the detailed submission comments.


This run starts from a save file in order to unlock "Xtreme Mode", which allows visiting all of the game's stages and battles in one run. Runs that start from SRAM are not normally allowed; see the Movie Rules for more on this.

This GBC game is based off the popular television series Mission: Impossible.

Following the spirit of that series, this is a stealth-based game. Supposedly tricky tasks are to be performed covertly. But in this movie, stealth is clearly not one of the author's highest priorities. It's all running through guards, as if they weren't there. Yet the player does not die.

This movie is 16.43 seconds faster than the predecessor movie.

Noddy and the Birthday Party is a platform game, developed by Tiertex Design Studios and published by BBC Multimedia, which was released in Europe in 2000. The game features the British children's literature and television character Noddy, and is set in Toyland, the fictional universe in which he resides. In the game's plot, Noddy has to prepare a birthday party for his friend Big-Ears. His tasks include gathering various items, such as party invitations, balloons, and candles.

This game was critically panned for its awkward controls, but that's a good thing in the eyes of a TASer. This run takes advantage of the game's extremely poor physics and level design and beats it in record time; Ready Steady Yeti prepares the whole birthday party in just seven and a half minutes.

Oddworld Adventures 2 plays very similarly to other Oddworld games. Abe's job is to free his fellow Mudokons who are being used as slave labor to dig up the bones of their ancestors. The Glukkons use the bones to make Soul Storm Brew. Abe's vocabulary is limited to "Hello", "Follow me" "Wait" and "Work". He must use these commands to direct slave Mudokons to their freedom. When enough slaves in a level have been saved, you go on to the next level to do it all again.

Pocket Bomberman is unlike the previous Bomberman games in that it's a sidescrolling platformer instead of a grid-like puzzle game. It's also one of the few games that allows Bomberman to jump.

"Jump Game" is the second of the game's two modes. The object of this minigame is to get to the goal at the top of each of the long vertical levels, defeating a boss several times in order to progress.

However, in this run, Robert_Ordis uses a glitch allowing him to clip through walls to skip several boss fights and finish all three stages in less than 2 minutes.


The Nicovideo stream features a cool heads-up display, including RAM information, input view, and even a level map.

Pokémon: Blue Version is part of the first generation of games within its famous series, known for having a very large number of beneficial glitches. In fact, the game can be completed in less than one minute of in-game time by save data corruption as shown by this run, and it can be completed in around 10 minutes using a more "conventional" glitch, as shown by this run. These runs break the game, and avoid much of the gameplay intended by the developers.

Pokémon Gold and Silver form the second generation of Pokémon, after Pokémon Red and Blue. The main differences between the generations is that the game is now in full color, and that there are 250 Pokémon instead of 151.

This movie plays through Pokémon Gold in a fairly fast manner, catching only a half dozen Pokémon in the process, but acquiring all the gym badges, and ultimately beating the protagonist of the previous generation of Pokémon games.

The author of this movie, FractalFusion, has written very extensive details of anything regarding this movie, including even some of the mathematical formulas used by the game. As usual, we recommend reading these comments.


This movie requires VBA1.7.2 v17 to synchronize. See the submission text for details.

Pokémon: Silver Version takes place 3 years after Blue, Red and Yellow, and puts the player in a brand new world: Johto. The gameplay is very similar to the previous games, but with several improvements, including new functions for the player's PokéGear, a Pokédex that can now be sorted by evolution type, and of course, new Pokémon.

In this run, MrWint uses a glitch involving the Coin Case to execute arbitrary code and finish the game 24 minutes faster than the previous version. As with his TASes of Red Version, the entire input file was generated by a computer program that brute forced the game for optimal luck manipulation. The expansive testing done by the program is the reason for the astronomical rerecord count.

We also have a run of a second generation Pokémon game that avoids corrupting the memory.

The current Pokémon: Yellow Version speed record uses heavy glitches that allow the player to catalog every Pokémon in slightly over a minute. Is there any way to get more ridiculous than that? Yes! In this run, using nothing but the Game Boy buttons and tool-assisted precision, the game is made to run an arbitrary program which greatly expands the game and shows off cool stuff from elsewhere too. For details on how this was achieved, see the author's comments.

This movie improves upon the predecessor by using a payload which builds upon the environment in the game highlighting new areas, new Pokémon, and shows off a lot more that can be done with arbitrary code execution than displaying the digits of Pi and some minor animation. For more runs that involve arbitrary code execution, see our published list of movies which execute arbitrary code as well as discussion in our forum.

In fact, the games can be completed in less than one minute of in-game time by save data corruption as shown by this run, and completed in around 10 minutes using a more "conventional" glitch, as shown by this run. These runs break the game, and avoid much of the gameplay intended by the developers.

In contrast, this run by TiKevin83 refrains from using any memory corrupting glitches and beats the game in a little over an hour and half. The Pokédoll trick is used to skip a dungeon in the game, but that is considered a minor developer oversight and does not corrupt the memory.


The author provided video commentary for this movie that can be viewed here.


This movie has been adjusted to synchronize on the real console, as well as on the 2.3 release of Bizhawk. The resynced movie is linked alongside the main one, and is called tikevin83-pokemonyellow-consoleverified. The author provided a commentary video for this resync that can be seen here. For more information, see the canceled submission, whose movie was added in this publication.

Rayman, the original flagship character of the now-renowned company UbiSoft, has no arms or legs, but that doesn't stop him from making surprisingly quick progress through this slow-paced game.

Rayman 2 for the Game Boy Color is a 2D side-scrolling platformer by UbiSoft. You play as Rayman, an odd-looking creature without arms or legs, on his quest to collect balls of energy called Lums, find the Four Masks of Polokus and eventually defeat Admiral Razorbeard and his robo-pirate army. Rayman can jump, hover, and throw his fists to defeat enemies and obstacles on his way to battle Razorbeard.

The author, got4n, runs through the game with tool-assisted precision to beat the game in a little over 25 minutes.

RoboCop for the GBC is a top-down shooter made by Mirage Interactive and Titus. The game itself consists of large maze levels and the slow movement pace of RoboCop. The difficulty in this game can be very obnoxious.

In this run, the author makes usage of a simple L+R glitch which doubles RoboCop's speed without affecting camera speed if three directions at once are pressed. In addition to this, it even allows him to warp to the next screen immediately when he catches up to the edge of the camera view while performing this glitch, and if there is an adjacent room to the direction where he's going. This allows him to get through most troublesome walls. The author provides detailed comments which help understanding what is going on.

Rockman DX3, also known as Zook Hero 2, is an an unlicensed pirate game developed by Vast Fame that rips gameplay off the Rockman X series. Just like Rockman X, there are eight stages, and six of them contain a boss who gives you his weapon upon defeat. The protagonist, Zook, also has abilities nearly identical to those of X. Despite these similarities, the code and graphics appear to be completely original and the music is actually decent.

The author, Mothrayas, plays the most popular and widely available release, which happened to be released with the final boss stage already unlocked, leading to the incredibly short completion time.

Additionally, this run is over 20 minutes faster then the previous run, thanks to a plethora of new glitches, tricks, and route optimizations. More information is provided in the author's comments

Super Mario Bros. Deluxe (1999) is the Game Boy Color version of the original Super Mario Bros. In addition to the standard game, it features some new unlockable modes, such as a challenge mode and "You vs. Boo", where Mario must race Boo through several levels which have been modified to make them more interesting in a race.

In this movie, got4n and TehSeven complete the You vs. Boo mode, beating Boo in all eight levels, and over half a second faster than the previous run.

Note: Although this run appears to be longer than the previous movie, that run's time was calculated with an incorrect frame rate. This run is indeed faster.


This run starts from a save file that has beaten the game and collected 100,000 points in challenge mode to unlock the "You vs. Boo" mode. Runs that start from SRAM are not normally allowed; see the Movie Rules for more on this.

Award - Gameboy TAS of 2010
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX is an updated version of an older GB game which adds color, an additional dungeon, various other minor features, and a lot of bug fixes. Link, after rescuing Hyrule (again?), sets off on a journey and subsequently shipwrecks on the mysterious Koholint Island, which has been overtaken by evil monsters which he must defeat in order to find a way back home.

Through a wide variety of glitches and general optimizations, this is now almost ten minutes faster than the previous full run of this game.

This run does not make use of a form of warp glitching, but still demonstrates that they obviously didn't fix as many bugs as they thought.

The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons is a Game Boy Color game that carries over much of the graphics from Link's Awakening. Surprisingly, much of the game engine is completely different and developed by Capcom. In it, the Oracle of Seasons, Din, is kidnapped by Onox, General of Darkness. Link must travel throughout both Holdrum and Subrosia to collect the 8 Essences of Nature, power up the Rod of Seasons, and defeat Onox.

This game has been attempted by various authors over the past 5 years. Finally, SwordlessLink, along with Tompa, who joined the project after dungeon 4, beat this legendary game in 1:25:57.21 primarily through the use of pitwalking, Pegasus Seeds, and enemy manipulation. Please see the authors' notes for more details.

Tintin: Prisoners of the Sun is the second of two licensed games based on the Tintin comic series. It adapts the two-part story of the comic albums The Seven Crystal Balls and Prisoners of the Sun into an interactive game.

The game's physics are very similar to those of the other Tintin game, though there are some slight differences. Among them, the B button now doubles as a crouch button and the hardest difficulty gives Tintin only three health points compared to the previous game's four.

In this run, Mothrayas uses movement tricks and some shortcuts to beat the game in under 20 minutes.

Tintin in Tibet is a typical licensed platform/puzzle game, originally released in 1994 in Europe for the SNES, GB, PC, Genesis and Game Gear. The Game Boy version was ported to the Game Boy Color in 2001, which is the version played in this run.

The game consists of 15 stages, with such variety as run right for justice platformers, autoscrollers, gameplay shifts, puzzles, minigames, and just a little actual platforming. The game is somewhat infamous for being hard due to very unlenient enemy hitboxes and the combination of tricky platforming and quirky physics.

In this run, Mothrayas uses precise movement and luck manipulation to beat the game in a little over 15 minutes.

This is the first handheld version of Tony Hawk's popular skateboarding game. It bears little resemblance to the original Playstation version. It is actually composed of two different events, a half pipe and a race mode.

Half pipe mode is viewed from a side perspective, kind of like the classic Skate or Die game. You perform tricks to achieve a high score. Race mode is viewed from a top-down perspective, where you goal is to perform tricks and get to the end quickly.

Wario Land II was the last first-party title made for the Game Boy, and was later re-released for the Game Boy Color to take advantage of the new hardware. Wario's nemesis, Captain Syrup, and her Black Sugar Gang (formerly the Brown Sugar Pirates) invade his castle and steal his precious treasure. Outraged, Wario races across the land to defeat Captain Syrup and take back the treasure.

This run beats the game with 100% completion: collecting all treasures, completing the picture panel and completing the extra time attack stage (the Really Final Chapter).

We recommend reading the author's submission text; it has a great deal of information.

Wendy: Every Witch Way is an action platform video game published by TDK Mediactive and developed by WayForward Technologies for the Game Boy Color in 2001.

The game centers on Wendy the Good Little Witch from the Casper the Friendly Ghost series. After accidentally opening her "aunties" chest containing magical stones, they upset the gravity of a floating castle that crashes on her house.

The player controls Wendy through three worlds with twelve levels and a horizontal shooter stage in each world. Inserting the game in the Game Boy Advance unlocked a new world exclusive to the console - Advance World.

Wendy: Every Witch Way is a fun little platformer for the Game Boy Color. The story is that Wendy the Good Little Witch accidentally releases the Chaos Emeralds from a treasure chest after clipping through the wall to her attic. The restless emeralds then proceed to knock down a floating castle that was blocking their view of the moon, and Wendy must flip her way through the castle to get the emeralds back.

This run abuses the game's gravity mechanic heavily, essentially making it a cuter version of Metal Storm.

Winnie the Pooh: Adventures in the 100 Acre Wood is an adventure game developed by NewKidCo and published by NewKidCo and Disney Interactive. It was released in North America in April 2000 for the Game Boy Color.

The game follows Winnie the Pooh as he interacts with other characters in the wood. Most of the game uses a board game structure, where the player rolls a dice and draws cards to move around on the map in an attempt to explore the wood. The game is aimed at a younger demographic and was designed to be simple. It was the first Winnie the Pooh game to be released on a video game console.

In the third X-Men game on the Game Boy Color (after X-Men: Mutant Academy and Mutant Wars), Lady Deathstrike and her fellow mutants have begun building a weapon that can melt the adamantium skeleton that protects Wolverine. The most famous of the X-Men must now fight through 16 levels to stop her from finishing this weapon.

Besides his main attack, hack-and-slashing with his trademark claws, Wolverine can fly into a rage when the attack button is rapidly pressed. While he is hard to control in this state, his attack range increases, enabling him to get through tougher sections of the game without taking as much damage.

In this run, Mothrayas utilizes some physics tricks and precise movement to finish the game in around 11 and a half minutes.

After Burst for Game Boy was released Japan-exclusively by NCS in 1990. Conceptually just a simple 2D shooter it features three modes (normal, 1P VS, 2P VS) of which this run plays the 1P VS mode. To reach this mode's ending, 15 (instead of 30 in normal mode) single-screen stages have to be cleared (all of which are different from the ones in normal mode).

The game features a ballistic bullet mechanic where you can charge each shot to have a higher exit velocity. Since only one player bullet can be visible at a time, the damage that can be done in any given timespan is severely limited, necessitating hitting multiple targets in one shot for best efficiency.

Quite strikingly, this game is plagued by extreme lag, slowing in-game time down significantly and contributing to about 80% runtime of the entire movie (about 4 lag frames per normal frame).

In this platform game, Barbie must find an outfit for her date with Ken. The environment features a shopping mall level, an underwater level and other worlds to explore. The game is also centered on collecting gems and pearls to fend off opponents. Enemies in the game include the usual sharks found in underwater levels in addition to jellyfish. Moving cubes of sugar must also be defeated in the game. The bonus rounds of the game are essentially a Concentration-type game where matching identical cards lead to extra points for the player.

In this game, some short fat guy decides to prove that the police as well as Batman are incapable of doing their jobs. So he steals Batman's outfit, some of his toys, and brings along with himself advanced military weapon prototypes to wipe out the Joker once and for all till the next game, and save Gotham city.

This run starts off with walking by enemies, showing how incompetent criminals are at firing guns. It proceeds to aerial combat a bit reminiscent of Gradius, further demonstrating that even when criminals fire, their weapons are no match for Batman's Batwing, even when piloted by a Batman impostor. The big finale here shows that as evil as the Joker is, he like all others cannot withstand rocket grenades indefinitely.

Battletoads is a classic video game by Rare for the NES, but different versions of the game were also made for many other systems, such as the Genesis and the Game Boy. All of these games are known for their comical animation style (such as gigantic fists and boots when the toads attack) and their high difficulty, essentially requiring the player to memorize the upcoming dangers to react fast enough to survive.

In this version, the player plays as the Battletoad Zitz on a quest to rescue the other two Toads, Rash and Pimple, from the Dark Queen. This game has only 9 stages, as opposed to 12 in the NES version. However, unlike the NES version of the game, there are no warps, and there is no two-player option. There are also fewer time-saving glitches. That doesn't stop Cardboard, though, from beating up tons of enemies and completing the game very quickly.

In this run, jlun2 chooses the platforming mode and jumps across the Sailor Moon world, finishing this relatively obscure game in a little over 6 minutes.

Boxxle is one of several takes of the classic Soko-Ban (1982), where the goal is to move a number of blocks to target locations. Due to the way movement works in the maze-like environments, the puzzles require some logic to complete.

Jigwally completes all 108 puzzles in this movie, using the fastest known solutions.

If you're looking for more block pushing action, take a look at Sokoban DS for a more modern take of Sokoban.

In this sequel to Boxxle, Willy's girlfriend has been kidnapped by a UFO and now he wants to earn enough money to buy a rocket and rescue her. And what better way is there to earn money than pushing crates? And there are lots of crates to be pushed in all 120 levels of the game. The new levels are the major difference between Boxxle II and its predecessor as there are no graphical changes to speak of. To solve all these levels, you'll once again have to push crates onto certain spots, which is made difficult by the fact that you can only push but not pull them so that it can easily happen that you push a crate into a dead end or block your own way. A password records your progress, but there is no battery to save your self-created levels.

Bubble Ghost, a game ported to many platforms, has the player, as a ghost, guide a bubble through a house by blowing at it; if the bubble hits anything at all it pops and the player loses a life. If that sounds difficult, well, it is - but that doesn't stop this run from making it look easy.

This movie appears to be slower than the previous publication; however, this is due to more accurate emulation. It is in fact faster by around 25.3 seconds than the previous publication, thanks to a new trick and better optimisation in many places. Please read the author's comments for more details.

Buster Brothers, also known as Pang, is a well-known series of puzzle games. This is the first release of the series, ported to the Game Boy. The Author decided to pick the GB version for TASing because the levels are simpler, which makes the run shorter and easier to optimize.

The plot is rather simple. Some "bubbles" are attacking the Earth and you must travel across the world busting them. The game has 50 stages divided into 17 locations: Mt. Fuji, Mt. Keirin, Emerald Temple, Australia, Taj Mahal, Leningrad, Paris, London, Barcelona, Athens, Egypt, Kenya, New York, Maya, Antartica and Easter Island. It offers the option to start from Leningrad and thus skip 18 levels. However, p4wn3r ignored this and went through all the levels to show the entire game.

Catrap is a platform/puzzle game where a boy and girl work through a series of 100 puzzles. This breaks a curse and returns them to human form. Completing each level involves climbing ladders and moving blocks so that each enemy can be defeated. A rewind function is present for trail+error attempts to get to the solutions. But that feature isn't needed here.

This run makes clever use of the switch mechanics. Switch can't be used immediately after defeating an enemy, so other actions are performed while the enemy falls off the screen. Attacking from the ladder is slightly faster, the author uses this and other similar tricks to help save time.

It is several years after the death of Dr. Von Frankenbone, and things around the castle are starting to fall apart. The electricity bill hasn't been paid in some time, and now the Frankenstein-like character Franky needs to find the cash to pay it off. The locals have trapped Franky inside the late doctor's private manor, and he must escape and piece together the golden tablet depicting his beautiful girlfriend Bitsy in order to pay the bills.

Dr. Franken II is a side-scrolling platformer that places you in control of Franky as he searches far and wide for the pieces of the golden tablet, including exotic locales like Egypt and the bottom of the ocean. Like the first Dr. Franken, there are many trap doors, monsters, and other obstacles. Keys are needed to unlock new areas of the game, and they can be found in the far reaches of the level.

The author, Flip, runs and jumps through the levels with precision, completing the tablet and saving Franky's home, improving the previous movie by ~43 seconds.

Final Fantasy Adventure is the first game of the Seiken Densetsu (聖剣伝説) series, but it does contain some classic Final Fantasy elements. The series is probably best known for the SNES game Secret of Mana. This game was later remade on the Game Boy Advance as Sword of Mana. Its gameplay resembles that of a The Legend of Zelda game, but with level building.

In this run, Touch-me utilizes a glitch to warp across the map, cutting down the completion time by a lot compared to the warpless run. He also improves the previous run in this category by 51:22.56 minutes thanks to a big new warp glitch that allows him to reach the top of the Tower of Gemma early.

Go! Go! Tank is an action game released exclusively for the Game Boy. Developed by Copya System, it was released in Japan in 1990, and in North America in 1991.

In the game, a peaceful nation has been invaded by an enemy army, and you must help clear the way for your own forces by plane. You must guide your tank to the end of each stage by arranging boxes with a hook attached to the bottom of your plane, as well as by shooting enemy planes and batteries that threaten it.

ThunderAxe31 beats the game in just 10 minutes and 47 seconds, dropping boxes all over the place like crazy. This is done not just to guide the tank to the end of each level as quickly as possible, but also to mess around while waiting.

Jurassic Park Part 2: The Chaos Continues is a video game and a non-canonical continuation of the Jurassic Park series, developed and published by Ocean Software for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) and Game Boy. The Game Boy version shown here follows a completely different storyline than its SNES counterpart.

In it, the player controls Grant, whose vehicle at Jurassic Park has stopped functioning as the result of an intentional power outage. Grant moves through a rain forest and later takes a raft down a river, where he encounters aquatic reptiles. Grant ultimately reaches Jurassic Park's headquarters, where most of the power remains off.

Kaeru no Tame ni Kane wa Naru (カエルの為に鐘は鳴る, "For the Frog the Bell Tolls") is a Japanese-only action-adventure game with RPG elements. In this funny, cool, and unique game, Prince Sabure is on a journey to save the Mille-Feuille Kingdom and its beautiful princess before his rival does. Along the way, he gains the ability to transform into a frog and a snake and can use these new powers to make it to the overtaken castle even faster.

The rival, Prince Richard, is known as one of the characters who make an appearance in The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening.

In this movie, author Ryuto uses a few tricks and even death as a shortcut to help him beat the game in under an hour and a half.

Kid Dracula (also known as Akumajou Special - Boku Dracula-kun) is simultaneously a remake and sequel to the Famicom game, which was only released in Japan. As a spinoff of the Castlevania series, this game is much more light-hearted, and features a quirky array of enemies that range from the standard skeletons, witches and ghouls to... ghosts, giant robots and aliens!?

Hetfield90 and StarvinStruthers improve the previous publication by around 27.3 seconds, thanks to much better optimisation.

There's trouble in Dream Land! The self-appointed King Dedede has stolen all of his subjects' food for a midnight feast. Kirby, a resident of Dream Land, bravely sets out to stop the gluttonous penguin and recover the food.

This first game in the Kirby series predates Kirby's ability to absorb enemy powers. He goes on to gain that ability in the second game in the series.

This run, a 34 second improvement over the previous movie, uses the 'Extra Game' password (up+select+A at title screen), which makes the enemies and bosses much more aggressive and damaging than usual.

The seven rainbow bridges, connecting the seven rainbow islands, have disappeared. King Dedede is to blame as always... or is he? The evil Dark Matter has him under his control and plans to turn Dream Land into a dark world. Kirby aims to save the day by going through seven worlds, aided this time by three animal friends (though you never see Rick the Hamster used in this run).

To get the true ending to the game, the player has to find a rainbow drop on each island, which form the rainbow sword after the main showdown with Dedede. These rainbow drops are hidden off the main paths of the stages, and most of them require a special power to break the barrier guarding the drop. This has a large effect on the route in some stages.

was0x's run is over five minutes faster than the previous run by Soulrivers. Part of this is due to cutscene skips after bosses, though this run is also much more optimized. Details can be found in the submission comments.

Kirby is a little round thing, and like Sonic, makes for an excellent pinball. Kirby must navigate through three boards to defeat his usual foes by knocking into them repeatedly, with the help of traditional pinball flippers.

This movie skips most of the normal pinball aspects of the game and goes right to the bosses. Clever luck manipulation is used to position them perfectly for optimal damage from Kirby.

In Kung-Fu Master, known as Spartan X in Japan, the player displays frightening reflexes that would be enough to obliterate any opponent.

In this run, the author, mugg, improves his previous run by changing the goal to getting the best in-game time, ignoring lag caused by enemy drops, among other things, in order to make for a more entertaining run. In addition, he changed the ROM used to the Japanese version, sacrificing some elements in order to make the fastest possible run. Please see the author's notes for more details.

This game, also known as Rockman World (ロックマンワールド), is the first of a GB series of Mega Man games.

The Game Boy series is a little different from the NES series in that there are only four Robot Masters to fight at the start. Those four are borrowed from the NES game of the same number, while four more Robot Masters from the next NES game guard Dr. Wily’s fortress. Game Boy Wily also likes to have a backup fortress in space after his first one is beaten. Another recurring concept in the Game Boy games is a ninth robot boss unique to the game who gives you a new weapon that is usually the only weapon effective against the final boss.

The authors, Mothrayas and Tremane, improved the predecessor movie by 0.46 seconds thanks to better mole section in Wily Castle.

This time Wily is back, or actually forwards – in time that is; where he plans to destroy the future and bring back technology to destroy the past. Join Mega Man as he too travels to the future to prevent Wily and face his greatest enemy yet.

This run has fewer major glitches than some other Mega Man runs on this site, but it still has the same classic action, and it pulls off some very unlikely maneuvers that are enjoyable to watch.

This time, though, Mega Man seems to have discovered a way to break the game's scrolling with the Hard Knuckle weapon. This leads to a large part of the 30.37 second improvement over the previous movie by dezbeast.

Mega Man III, known as Rockman World 3 (ロックマンワールド3) in Japan, is the third Mega Man game for Game Boy, released in December 1992. The game continues the quest of the protagonist, Mega Man, in a never-ending struggle with his long-time nemesis, Dr. Wily. As with previous Game Boy releases, the game incorporates gameplay elements and bosses from two sequential Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) games: Mega Man 3 and Mega Man 4.

For those of you who enjoy listening to the music, the background music in this one is quite good, and the sound quality is much better than previous Mega Man games for the system.

This is an improvement to the predecessor movie by 265 frames, which translates to 225 frames if you only count actual gameplay. This is the result of difference in loading times between VBA and BizHawk.

This is the final installment of classic Mega Man games on the Game Boy, and the first Super Game Boy Mega Man game. Unlike the four earlier Game Boy games which copied a lot from their NES counterparts, Mega Man V has all new enemies and bosses: you fight the Stardroids, robots from outer space named after the planets of the solar system (note that Pluto was considered a planet at the time). Unlike every other classic Mega Man game, Dr. Wily is not the final boss and our hero uses the Mega Arm instead of the Mega Buster.

Tremane and Mothrayas improve the previous movie by 41.83 seconds, thanks to overall better lag management, sub-pixel optimisation, as well as new tricks and strategy changes.

Metroid II: Return of Samus is the second game in the Metroid series, taking place immediately after the events of the NES Metroid. Samus arrives at the planet SR388 to exterminate all metroids and eventually succeeds.

What luck that she should receive an assignment to go to that planet!"

This is Metroid II: Return of Samus completed with all the items collected. Being truthful to the original Metroid values, the game holds many items cleverly hidden, so finding all of them is not an easy task.

That being said, Metroid II doesn't keep track of the collected items' percentage. Moreover, the game has two excessive Energy tanks and an additional copy of each beam. It's been agreed that the author should take all the E-tanks, and at least one copy of each beam. However, due to the apparent linearity of this game, collecting so many additional items doesn't make the movie dramatically slower.

This movie is nearly 6 minutes faster than Alter's previous movie due to better precision, faster Metroid fights, and missile planning.

Note: This movie does not use secret worlds, also known as "select glitch".

- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Action
- Genre: Platform
This game is one of many ports of an arcade game (there is also a movie of a different version of the game here). In it, an evil force has corrupted all ninjas except for you, and you must defeat the evil force. You have four different weapons, and you can also obtain shadow clones which work similarly to the options from Gradius or the clones from Ninja Gaiden 2.

Sit back and enjoy the fast-paced ninja action and the weapon variety.

Join Abe, your favorite Mudokon, as he runs and jumps his way to victory while in a portable RuptureFarms. On a more serious note, Oddworld Adventures is an attempt to take the popular Oddworld series to the Game Boy, many of the features found in the Playstation version won't be found here.

This run features the use of a pause glitch to allow extreme jumps, saving time from normal platforming or creating otherwise impossible routes to beat the stages in unintended ways.

The barechested alien crushing ultra macho hero is back, and he's portable this time!

This Contra game combines elements from the original Contra and Super C while adding some elements into one action packed game. Watch our hero cruise through 5 levels of steadily increasing difficulty yet still crushing those aliens in record time.

This movie is a 12 second improvement over the previous movie. Improvements come from use of the homing gun and from a bug that allows horizontal screen wrapping.

- Heavy glitch abuse
- Genre: Action
- Genre: Platform
Pac-In-Time for the Game Boy was released in 1994 as a port of the DOS version of the game. Pac-In-Time is in turn a re-skin of the game Fury of the Furries for DOS and Amiga, which was licensed to Namco and rereleased with Pac-Man instead. This game is a departure from normal Pac-Man gameplay involving mazes and ghosts, and is instead a platformer.

In this run, watch as slamo demonstrates some furious rope swinging action and so many physics glitches that it'll make you cry. Waka waka.

- Genre: RPG
Award - Gameboy TAS of 2016
Pokémon: Blue and Red Version are part of the first generation of the Pokémon franchise. They were developed by Game Freak and published by Nintendo in North America in 1998. They feature a 10-year old boy who ventures around the Kanto region and aim to become the Pokémon champion. During his journey, he encounters various monsters, which he can catch to use for battles, or just to fill up his Pokédex.

In this run, MrWint fills the Pokédex without resorting to any glitches and obtains the diploma in both games in less than four hours. Note that Mew isn't caught here; this is because it can only be obtained through either an event or glitches.


The official encodes feature commentary by the author as soft subtitles. In addition, the downloadable encodes feature additional audio tracks: The first (default) track features audio from both games, while the second and third tracks feature audio from Blue and Red, respectively.

There's also an alternate encode provided by the author which features a detailed overlay.

- Major skip glitch

- Heavy glitch abuse
- Corrupts save data
- Corrupts memory
- Heavy luck manipulation
- Genre: RPG
Ash reveals his dark side, using save corruption and direct memory manipulation to catch 64 of the 151 Pokémon in the blink of an eye. Then he beats the game in less than a minute (in-game time) - without ever leaving his own room, bypassing Professor Oak's speech and skipping right to the high praise for his impressive stats.

This run is so glitchy that it's near impossible to follow what's going on without help; reading the author's notes is highly recommended.

To see a run of the first generation of Pokémon that doesn't take advantage of save data corruption, watch this movie.

Note: Although this movie appears to be slower than the one it obsoleted, it is actually 66 frames faster. The reason for the slower time is that the emulator used in this run is more accurate and runs at the correct, slightly slower framerate.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Platform
Popeye 2, sequel to Popeye, is a Game Boy platformer featuring the cartoon character Popeye the Sailor. The game follows Popeye (and his punching arm) as he ruins Brutus's day, again.

Some delicate control is required to move through the levels without losing speed; in particular, watch for the precise manipulation in the underwater levels.

Eat spinach with every meal!
