A newly discovered clipping glitch opens up alternative paths making it possible to save a significant amount of time. Enjoy the show!

Frogger's Adventures: The Rescue is a Frogger game that retains the gameplay of Frogger 2: Swampy's Revenge while introducing level bosses and new ways to solve puzzles involving Frogger's tongue. The goal of the game is to save Frogger's girlfriend Lily, who has been kidnapped by an organization called T.R.I.P.

In Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry and his friends unravel the mystery behind the Heir of Slytherin (yes, it's Lord Voldemort, duh) and his Chamber of Secrets. USTA2877 would make short work of that, but is frequently interrupted by senseless (unskippable) cutscenes and loading screens, which this game (series) is somewhat notorious for. Most of this run is relatively glitch-free, so lean back and enjoy a fast-forward through the second part of the Harry Potter series.
Note: The minor audio and animation glitches are caused by bugs in Dolphin's emulation and capture.

- Aims for maximum score
- 2 Players
- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Shooter
Award - First edition TAS of 2015
Ikaruga (2001) is a vertical shoot 'em up published and developed by Treasure as a spiritual successor to its earlier title, Radiant Silvergun (1998). It was first released on arcade machines, then eventually ported to Dreamcast, GameCube, XBLA, Android, and even Steam, thanks to the loyal following among the Western shoot 'em up fans. GameCube version was chosen for creation of this TAS as it provided both the most arcade-accurate port, and the most accurately emulated platform of those available at the time.

Ikaruga features a polarity mechanic wherein enemies can be black or white, shooting black or white bullets, respectively. Additionally, player ships themselves can switch between black and white: when white, ship absorbs white bullets and deals extra damage to black enemies, and vice versa. When enough bullets are absorbed, a powerful enemy-seeking attack can be unleashed. As such, typical gameplay consists of frequent polarity switching, chain-killing enemies, and absorbing bullets instead of dodging them; to capitalize on this, the author chooses to control both player ships in order to absorb as many bullets as possible, do more damage, and pick off escaping enemies without breaking a kill chain.

The goal of this TAS is to maximize the score. Ikaruga's scoring system mainly consists of color-based enemy chaining: killing three enemies of the same color in a row increases chain value, messing up the color sequence resets it. Absorbing bullets and lasers, speedkilling bosses, and having spare lives at the end are also significant score boosts—all of these are used in the TAS to the fullest extent. The final score is a massive 50,230,200, only attainable with two players.


Ikaruga has been extensively competed in both Western and Asian gaming communities, leading to publication of an official superplay DVD, as well as blessing us with many amazing feats of unassisted gameplay. If you've enjoyed this TAS and would like to see what some of the best human players have to offer, make sure to watch VTF-INO's unassisted doubleplay, in which the player attempts to achieve maximum score by controlling both ships in realtime; also check out RNA's flawless stage 5 boss fight done solo, and Sa Suisai's full-game unassisted playthrough on Normal difficulty, executing some inhumanly precise chains on the XBLA version of the game.

Luigi wins a mansion in a contest and his brother, Mario, goes missing there. It is your goal to search the haunted mansion to figure out where he is. Your weapons to protect you are a flashlight and the Poltergust 3000, a ghost vacuum. Capturing ghosts and collecting keys helps you progress in your quest to find Mario.

The author, solarplex, utilizes out-of-bounds glitches to skip 19 of the 23 Portrait Ghosts and all of the Boos (except King Boo), beating the whole game in around 10 minutes with TAS timing, or 8:28:52 with RTA timing.


This run plays the Hidden Mansion, a mode unlocked after beating the game once that increases the power of the Poltergust and allows skipping some cutscenes, to make the run more entertaining. We do not normally accept runs that start from dirty SRAM; see the rules for more details.

Pac-Man World 2 is a 3D platformer for the Nintendo Gamecube. Pac-Man has 2 unique movement options: butt-bouncing (ground pound) and rev-rolling (spindash). The goal is simple, just make it to the end of each stage, and kill each boss at the end of the world.

The TAS differs from RTA runs in that minute details in the level geometry are abused using the rev-roll. This allows many strategies to be shown off that aren't viable otherwise.

Note: Due to an emulator bug the intro and outro videos look jittery.

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door is an RPG made by Nintendo and is the second game in the Paper Mario series following Paper Mario for the Nintendo 64. It incorporates a world made of paper and turn-based battles, much like its predecessor. In it, Peach asks Mario to help find a treasure hidden in Rogueport. When he arrives, she is missing as usual, and he must collect 7 Crystal Stars to save her and open the Thousand-Year Door to collect the treasure.

Malleoz improved his previous TAS by 1:02:37.16 with several new skips, including the long sought-after Palace Skip. We suggest reading the author's comments for more information.

Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc is the third major platform game installment in the Rayman series. It tells the story of how Rayman stops André, an evil black lum, from taking over the world with his army of sack-like "Hoodlum" soldiers. Unlike the game's predecessor, Rayman 3 took a more light-hearted turn; it has sarcastic self-referential undertones and pokes fun at the platforming video game genre.

In this run, Got4n & Andzura abuse many different glitches to skip large parts of levels and even some boss fights. A full list of glitches used and abused can be found in the submission text.

The Mercenaries is an unlockable minigame in Resident Evil 4. It is unlocked by completing the main game regardless of difficulty.

The objective of the game is to kill enemies to earn points before the evacuation chopper arrives in the allotted time.

In this run, Ubercapitalist plays through the Castle level of The Mercenaries game mode using Wesker. He obtains the maximum amount of kills and the highest score using multiple weapons and major amount of luck and spawn manipulation. Ubercapitalist explains in great detail his process in the submission text.

SoulCalibur II continues the tradition set by Soul Blade on the PlayStation and SoulCalibur on the Dreamcast with intense action and plenty of weapons to deal the massive blows. Each console version of the game also includes a unique character for the platform; in the GameCube version, it's Link from The Legend of Zelda.

N?K improves his previous run by nearly a minute, thanks to setting the amount of rounds per match to 1 and overall better luck manipulation.


Note: In order for this run to sync, the free DSP files included with Dolphin must be used. Playing back the run using DSP files dumped from a real GameCube will result in a desync.

Sega's Super Monkey Ball (2001) lets you take control of one of four monkeys trapped inside a transparent ball. You must complete each stage by tilting the game level to roll your monkey using the force of gravity and colliding with objects. There are over 100 unique levels ranging in difficulty from easy to near impossible.

In this TAS, the authors start at the Expert difficulty, where they proceed to tear through most of its 60 levels as well as the 10 Master levels, using warps where necessary and breaking most of the heavily optimized console world record times.

This TAS improves upon the previous publication by nearly 16 in-game seconds, using many new route optimizations. More information can be found in the submission text.

In the sequel to Super Monkey Ball, you must once again guide a monkey trapped inside a plastic ball to the goal in each stage by tilting the game world. New features include mechanics like portals and more complex level designs, which in a speedrun, lead to some really interesting routes.

In this TAS, the authors skip all the easy levels and warp to the Expert stages, where they proceed to tear through all 50 levels as well as the 10 Master and 10 Master Extra stages, breaking many of the heavily optimized console world record times.

Award - First edition TAS of 2013Award - Nintendo 3D TAS of 2013
Nintendo's Super Smash Bros. fighting game series is rather different from your typical fighting game. Instead of wearing your opponent's health down to 0, you must knock him or her out of the battlefield. Fighting controls are also simplified, making it very easy for even your non-gaming friends to pick up and play.

Super Smash Bros. Melee offers fighters from the wealth of Nintendo characters like Mario, Bowser, different Pokémon, Link, and Kirby. They can either fight through the single-player modes like Classic, Adventure, and Event Mode, or they battle it out against other characters in a four-player frenzy.

Additional characters and stages are unlocked as hidden objectives are met, and coins rewarded for playing in all modes can be spent on a capsule toy machine. The toys in the machine represent games from Nintendo's entire video game history, and each can be viewed in 3D with a brief description.

In this TAS, numerics plays through Adventure Mode with Samus, abusing glitches to move through the stages at a high rate of speed while making the battles as entertaining as possible.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 is the third game of the Tony Hawk series. This one introduced the revert and double tap tricks, which allowed for much longer and higher scoring combos. There are 8 main levels in the game, five of which have goals scattered across the level, and three competitions.

In this run, Fog skates, grinds, and flies through the air across multiple levels to complete the game as fast as possible.

We also have an "all goals and golds" run if you want to see all the goals completed as fast as possible.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 is the third game of the Tony Hawk series. This one introduced the revert and double tap tricks, which allowed for much longer and higher scoring combos. There are 8 main levels in the game along with a secret level unlocked after completing the final competition. Six of the levels have goals scattered across the level, with the remaining three being competitions.

In this run, Fog skates, grinds, and flies through the air across all story mode levels to complete all goals in the game as well as getting gold medals in all of the competitions as fast as possible.

We also have an "any%" run of the game if you just want to see the game completed as fast as possible.

Tony Hawk's Underground is a skateboarding-adventure video game published by Activision in 2003, the fifth entry in the Tony Hawk series.

Underground is built upon the skateboarding formula of previous Tony Hawk's games: the player explores levels and completes goals while performing tricks. The game features a new focus on customization; the player, instead of selecting a professional skater, creates a custom character.

Underground adds the ability for players to dismount their boards and explore on foot. The plot follows the player character and his or her friend Eric Sparrow as the two become well-known professionals and grow apart.

In this run, The Packle breaks all sense of reality with physics-defying jumps, incredible grinding speed, and radical airs.

- Starts from a saved state or SRAM
- Genre: Sport
Tony Hawk's Underground 2 is the sixth installment in Neversoft's Tony Hawk's series and is the sequel to Underground. The gameplay in Underground 2 is similar to that of previous Tony Hawk games: the player skates around in a 3D environment modeled after various cities and attempts to complete various goals. Most goals involve skating on or over various objects or performing combos. Scores are calculated by adding the sum of the point value of each trick strung together in a combo and then multiplying by the number of tricks in the combo.

In this run, The Packle plays through the Classic game mode, which brings back older THPS styled objectives into the current set of levels (including remade levels of older THPS games), using the easiest difficulty.
