Spider-Man: Web of Fire, one of the last games to be released on the ill-fated 32X, follows our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man's battle with the evil forces of the neo-Nazi organization H.Y.D.R.A.

This is an improvement of 24.58 seconds over the previous run due primarily to a new glitch allowing Spidey to pass through walls.

You can see this movie played back on an actual Genesis here!

3 Ninjas Kick Back is a traditional platform game based on the movie of the same name. Each one of the three ninjas has unique weapons and abilities. All three of them can run, duck, crawl, climb, jump, as well as hang on trees, ropes, and so on. You'll encounter many obstacles and enemies, both regular and boss-like, which you'll have to overcome and defeat.

Challenger clears the game in record time, thanks to a glitch allowing one to zip through walls.

VISUALSHOCK! SPEEDSHOCK! SOUNDSHOCK!
NOW IS TIME TO THE 68000 HEART ON FIRE!

Alien Soldier, released in 1995, is a spiritual successor to Gunstar Heroes (you can tell by the cameo appearances of certain bosses), and a real treat in terms of production values as described in the tagline quoted above. The game's rather nonsensical plot boils down to the protagonist, Epsilon-Eagle, having to fight his former terrorist comrades (as well as everything on his path). Thankfully, speedrunners don't care about plots either way.

What is more important is that Alien Soldier epitomizes Treasure's concept of an action game: a fast-paced, flashy, relentless boss rush. As such, it has 33 grotesque bosses, each of them promising a guaranteed game over for inexperienced players. However, using Epsilon-Eagle's vast arsenal of weapons and dodging abilities, the authors plow through the game's "SUPERHARD" difficulty without any regard to its name in this long-awaited movie, achieving a total in-game time of 8 minutes 13 seconds.

When Alisia Dragoon was just a little girl, she watched her father being tortured and killed in front of her. For some reason, she was allowed to leave, grow up and somehow swallow a Tesla coil in order to seek her revenge through electrical zappy death. Or at least that's the amount of plot that is needed to understand this game.

This run zaps through the game, quickly frying everything in Alisia's path to nothingness.

Altered Beast is originally an arcade game. In each level, the player must collect 3 powerups in order to transform into a powerful beast and fight the boss of that level. This game was one of the first games of the Sega Genesis system, and was first bundled with it.

This might look like it's an auto-scrolling game, but in fact the scroll speed depends on the number of enemies on screen. The player tries to kill all enemies as soon as possible to increase the scroll speed, using 2 characters to maximize this process. Almost 30 seconds were saved compared to the previous version.

The game is based on the popular French comics series Astérix. It is 50 B.C., and the entire Gaul (today's France) is conquered by the Romans. Only one village still remains independent, thanks to the incredible powers of its two great warriors, Asterix and Obelix. In the game, they must first of all liberate the village Orvio and rescue their friend Dogmatix.

The player can play as either Asterix or Obelix. They make their way through platform levels, fighting enemies by punching them, and jumping to access higher ares or to avoid falling down. There are also some items that the player can collect, such as bombs, with which the player can overcome obstacles and advance in the game.

Blades of Vengeance is a platform game incorporating light RPG elements and character styling, reminiscent of Gods by The Bitmap Brothers. The Dark Lady has unleashed hordes of monsters whom the protagonist must slay. The player can choose from three main characters - the Huntress, Warrior and Sorcerer, all of which have different abilities. Throughout the game the player has the option to improve their powers by collecting armour and weapons (such as a mace and a crossbow) or by using spells. Each of the eight stages ends with a boss.

Castlevania's foray onto the Genesis sees two protagonists duke it out with Dracula and his minions: John Morris and Eric Lecarde. John Morris carries the famed whip, and Eric Lecarde wields a spear.

This run sees John Morris take on the hordes of minions. While Morris is essentially slower in movement, he is still the faster of the two due to his ability to destroy the bosses quicker than Lecarde. For more precise details, see the authors' detailed submission text.

This movie here is one that makes little to no sense to someone who isn't familiar with the game. The main character can move very fast and the dark graphics don't help in figuring out what's going on. There is a lot more going on in this movie than meets the eye. For example, the player uses a secret warp involving combining the alchemy potions that are scattered throughout the levels.

This improves the previous run of the game by 29.5 seconds thanks to a route change.

NOTE: Don't be fooled by the fake credits after the final level. The game is not quite over yet.

Chakan: The Forever Man is a fairly standard platform game in which you control a dead guy (Chakan has lost his soul) through many levels of hack and slash platforming. The ultimate goal is defeat all the bad-guys and so finally achieve inner-peace.

The story-line (if you can call it that), does give this game an interesting image and it is much darker than most other titles available on the Genesis.

This is a full completion run, which, compared to the any% branch, beats some additional levels and collects all items.

NOTE: Don't be fooled by the fake credits after the final level. The game is not quite over yet.

Contra: Hard Corps is the only game of the Contra series released on the Genesis / Mega Drive console. In this game, you get to choose between four characters, each with different abilities and weapons.

This game has four completely different final stages, each with a different ending, depending on the choices you make earlier. This run takes the second quickest path leading to one of these final stages. There are also runs which get the faster secret ending and the best ending.

The Japanese version was chosen because for some reason it gives the players a health bar, allowing them to take some damage without dying.

Fang is used due to a glitch that allows him to deliver fully charged D weapon shots without taking time to charge them.

This movie by Soig beats adelikat's old movie by 4.38 seconds due to general improvements. To learn more about these improvements, you can read the author's comments.

Contra: Hard Corps (1994) was the first game in the series to be exclusively released on a non-Nintendo console. The game took a lot of elements from previous installments and spiced them up with even more dynamic combat, different playable characters, nonlinear plot and about twice the amount of boss fights.

In this movie the author takes the secret "fifth ending", thereby skipping most of the game. If you want to see runs which play more of the game, then you should see this run (with the quickest "normal" ending) or this run (with the "best" ending).

The Japanese version was chosen because, for some reason, it gives the players a health bar, allowing them to take some damage without dying.


While the time may look longer, it is a 0.25 second improvement over the previous movie. The previous movie used an inaccurate FPS (60) instead of the standard Genesis framerate (59.923).

Crack Down (クラックダウン) is a run and gun arcade game originally released by Sega in 1989, and ported to the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis in 1990.

This is a 2D Run and Gun game where you need to plant bombs in designated locations then escape. It has a 1 and a 2 player mode. This game features some neat music as well.

This is an improvement over the previous "1 player" TAS of 2:05.09 minutes due to a glitch which allows to cross some very thin walls. This run also obsoletes the "2 player" one.

Crusader of Centy (1994), also known as Soleil, tells the story of a teenage boy saving humanity from monsters that might or might not actually be evil. To his aid he has up to two pets at a time granting him some special ability.

The movie takes advantage of the way the game calculates movement speed to make some seemingly impossible long jumps and skip large parts of some rooms.

This run features Wile E. Coyote, who uses his guile and Acme traps to surprise and attempt to catch Road Runner. It also has a (not so) surprise ending.

The Genesis version of Double Dragon, released by Accolade without license from Sega, is considered the most faithful port of the original arcade game. In addition, due to the more powerful hardware on the Genesis, the slowdown problems from the original 8-bit game have been fixed.

In this movie, Dimon12321 kicks, punches, and whips his way through the game, making short work of any Black Warriors that dare to challenge him.

During the prolonged campaign known as the Goblin Wars, the Goblin Army gathered one night to amass a final assault upon Duke Hector Barrik's Castle. In the middle of this decisive battle, however, both armies were suddenly interrupted by a great earthquake as a vortex violently manifested itself in the midnight sky. Friend and foes alike were sucked up and taken into this void. On the other side, the Duke's Castle and its inhabitants mysteriously found themselves deposited within a hollow valley, securely guarded by impossibly high cliffs illuminated by a flaring red sun overhead. Per the Duke's urgent request, four adventurers are summoned and commissioned with the task of exploring this strange new land, in hopes of finding allies to establish trade with.

In ars4326's run, the ground work laid by the previous TASer, A Jesus Fan, is improved upon in this 7+ minute improvement. Most notably, only a single Thief is used throughout due to a programming exploit which allows him to inflict waves of constant critical damage while fighting in dungeons. In addition, a newly discovered reloading trick is used to skip the game's only required overworld fight in the Azcan Jungle. Also, new route strategies and movement optimizations are featured.

Finally, the ending input has been corrected to showcase the game's entire ending upon completing the final dungeon.

Dynamite Headdy (1994) is an often-overlooked action/platformer gem whose main hero, a star puppet named Headdy, can attack his enemies by shooting his detachable head at them.

During the span of the game, Headdy must defeat the evil puppet king Dark Demon who captured his friends' home town, the Keymasters that guard the path to the villain, and Headdy's lifelong rival Trouble Bruin, who is eager to take his place in the production.

To prevent all those bad things from happening, Headdy has a nice arsenal of interchangeable heads that are used both to attack enemies and to aid traveling, which brings enough variety to entertain the viewer throughout the movie.

Ecco: The Tides of Time (1994) is the sequel to Ecco the Dolphin. It is harder than the original, and continues its bizarre science fiction plotline. You control Ecco the dolphin, navigating the waters, circumnavigating the time-stream, saving lost DNA nucleotide pairs, and finding key crystals, schools of fish and pockets of air deep down in submarine caves.

Ecco is capable of moving at very high speed but has little in the way of brakes. Turning corners without smashing into walls is tricky to say the least.

This run plays on the hardest difficulty mode.

Note: The multimedia file for this run is an MKV with chapters. This can be played in most media players, but if problems are encountered then please see the Downloads page.

Ecco the Dolphin is a game where you control a fast, but hard to maneuver dolphin who travels into hostile environment to save the other dolphins after a freak waterspout storm.

This run improves the previous one through better execution, a new route and new glitches. As in the previous run, damage is avoided, as it almost always slows Ecco down. At the same time, a major new glitch allowing Ecco to go through nearly any wall was not used because the frequency of its use would make the run very repetitive.

Set after the events of the first movie, Sega's Ghostbusters follows the further adventures of Peter, Ray and Egon, as the make their way through six cases in an attempt to piece together a mysterious stone tablet.

Completely different than the Activision title of the same name, the Genesis Ghostbusters is a side-scrolling platformer that has the boys in gray running through houses, apartments, a burning house and a high-rise for starters as they battle a myriad of ghosts with their proton blasters. When the Ghostbusters face off against a boss ghost, they have the ability to trap them the traditional way.

Peter, Ray and Egon, each have different abilities, and can purchase weapon and life upgrades from shops throughout the levels. Other familiar faces make an appearance, as Slimer offers power-ups, and the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man returns to settle the score from the movie.

Ghouls 'n Ghosts is a sequel to Ghosts 'n Goblins on the NES. On a quest to recapture stolen souls from Lucifer (Loki in this game), the player advances through a series of levels filled with demonic and undead creatures.

Usually, one would have to finish the game twice in order for it to end properly. Instead of doing so, the author of this movie uses a password to start off on the 2nd playthrough.

Award - Sega TAS of 2016
Gunstar Heroes (1993) is widely considered to be one of the best action games on the Sega Genesis, but, ironically, was commercially unsuccessful due to poor promotion. It features a variety of melee attacks, as well as 4 basic weapons which can be combined in pairs (making a total of 14 combinations) — all densely packed in a swift and explosion-heavy gameplay spanning over seven uniquely designed stages. The author takes special care to showcase all the moves the game is capable of, using every possible attack and having lots of fun playing around in autoscrolling sections.

This movie is a little under 4 and a half minutes faster than the previous one due to more aggressive boss fights and a new movement technique. See the author's comments for more details.

The encodes for this movie are also slightly larger than usual — this is due to an amount of colors and on-screen motion even the best codecs have problems coping with.

Enemy spies have been sent to buy military weapon technologies from scientists all around the world. Young Indiana Jones has been recruited to infiltrate the meeting locations and prevent the spies from leaving alive.

But Indy doesn't care about the deals and forgets to kill the spies other than the one in England, perhaps thinking, "What the heck, I climbed all the way up to the top of Big Ben; may as well actually defeat the spy this time."

Watch Young Indy blaze through this otherwise uninspiring game with unconventional techniques such as using gear wheels to suddenly appear on another floor and suiciding to avoid fighting bosses.

James Bond 007: The Duel is a sidescrolling platformer featuring a storyline that is not based on a James Bond film. A mad professor has commandeered a Caribbean satellite launch center and is planning to use its technology to take over the world, and only 007 can stop him!

The game requires precision in jumping, as Bond will easily die if he falls from high places. Bond's gun also needs to be reloaded on occasion and ammo needs to be conserved. Besides shooting the bad guys in his way, Bond has to find all of the female hostages and set bombs in each base in order to proceed.

Archanfel improves the previous run by 2 minutes and 21.13 seconds thanks to better optimization and new tricks like dying to save time and using minor bullet damage to avoid lethal falling damage from great heights.

In his second adventure, James Pond must retrieve the toys Dr. Maybe has stolen. Pond has been armed with an Inspector Gadget-style stretch device, which he can use to view higher areas or claw onto ceilings so as to slide across them.

If you noticed the pun in the title, it may not come as a surprise that the game's title screen music is an upbeat rendition of the RoboCop title theme.

Archanfel defeats the nefarious Dr. Maybe and retrieves Santa's presents in 24 minutes and 20.46 seconds.

We also have a run of James Pond 3: Operation Starfish.

This is a raptor movie of the Genesis version of Jurassic Park, which is completely different from the SNES version. In this game, you can choose between Grant and the raptor, each with his own set of levels. Grant's levels are like Prince of Persia except with dinosaurs and better weapons. The raptor's levels go by much faster.

The collision detection is quite buggy, and the author takes advantage of this.

This is a 12.34 second improvement on the previous movie, almost all of the improvement coming from better optimization.

In this fast-paced platformer, our hero, Casey, is faced with a virtual reality game which seems to make its participants disappear; he must make use of the ability to change into a variety of different forms with diverse abilities to get to the bottom of the mystery.

This run aims for the fastest possible path through the game in real time, and so manipulates the score counter in a few instances.

This is an improvement of a minute and a half to the previously published (five year old) run in this category.

Kid Chameleon is the story of a kid trapped in an arcade machine, where he has to traverse many different kinds of levels from different "games" and can transform into many types of characters. It is rather convoluted, with the ability to take many paths to the last level.

Instead of taking the fastest path, this movie takes the longest path possible without backtracking, but does so as quickly as possible. Several new tricks originated in this run that only recently found their way into the any%.

Award - Lucky TAS of 2008
At TASVideos, even 10 second long movies are improved, and game characters become so powerful they don't even have to move in order to complete the game.

This improvement is a result of the previous movie's author joining forces with the author of a VBA bot used in a glitched-out Pokémon TAS. Together they've managed to shorten the solution by 14 frames with the help of a similarly-designed bot for Gens.

Note that, while input length is 10 seconds long, less than 0.3 seconds of it is actual gameplay!

This game is what you get if you take Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and lock it onto Sonic & Knuckles. As the name suggests, what you get is simply Sonic the Hedgehog 2 with Knuckles the Echidna as the playable character. The levels remain mostly unchanged, save for the addition of a few monitors that can only be reached as Knuckles, whose abilities from Sonic and Knuckles (gliding, climbing walls, and jumping a little lower than Sonic) remain intact.

In this run, you'll see the zones of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (colloquially referred to as West Side Island in the Japanese manual) like you've never seen them before, as Knuckles uses every trick in the book to collect over five thousand rings, with only 11 throughout the game eluding his grasp. (For the time being, anyway...)

Landstalker is a challenging adventure RPG developed by Climax Entertainment (who also helped develop the Sega Shining series). You play as an adventure-seeking treasure hunter named Nigel, an elf who's remarkably young-looking for his age (88!). After completing his latest bounty, he runs into a wood nymph named Friday who's being pursued over her alleged knowledge of the whereabouts of King Nole's treasures. After helping her evade her pursuers, the two team up as they set off for Mercator Island in search of the fabled fortune.

Are King Nole's treasures truly close by? Are they ripe for the taking, or still jealously guarded to this day...?

In ars4326's run, 100% completion is based on RTA strats and is defined as follows:

  • Collect all Life Stock (minus the shop in Kazalt)
  • Obtain all equipment
  • Collect all unique/key items
  • Complete all side quests
  • Activate all teleport trees

Langrisser 2 (ラングリッサー2) is the acclaimed sequel to Warsong, never finding its way to an official release in English.

You are placed into the role of Elwin (descendent of Garrett/Redin), a wandering Swordsman who stops to rest from his journey at a small, obscure village. He soon finds himself, however, in a sudden conflict between an elite detachment of the Rayguard Empire and a peculiar young woman whom they are attempting to abduct. In desperation, her childhood friend Hein rushes toward Elwin and urgently pleads him to help fight off and thwart the Empire's plans. So much for rest...

Who is this young woman? Why is a major military power intent on capturing her? And what's this have to do with a legendary holy blade?

In ars4326's run, cunning strategy combines with heavy luck manipulation to produce a speedrun that completes all of the game's accessible stages (27 normal and 3 'hidden') in just under 2 hours. Virtually no level-grinding is found in this action-packed playthrough as Elwin & Co. seek to stop an Emperor's plans of uniting the continent with the power of an ancient demon sword!

Like most of the previous games in this series, the protagonist has limited rolling power and limited use of super bombs. This forces the author to use some strategic choices to conquer these stages quickly, including occasionally dying to replenish bombs.

Mystic Defender is the USA version of the Japanese game "孔雀王2" (Kujaku-Oh Ni, which means "The Peacock King 2"). Except for changing the clothing of the hero and deleting the intro and the names of the stages, everything seems to be the same.

Because Peacock the hero is not a very smart hero, he cannot walk and use his arms at the same time (a common video game character disability). Thus he must jump to be able to use his arms. If he is charging a bigger shot when he lands, he forgets to walk for a few frames, so you cannot charge up a shot too early. It's all very delicate.

This is a 35 second improvement over the previous movie by highness. Much of the improvement comes from an interesting glitch in the last level.

Warning: This movie has been rated PG-13 by the TVRA for Tool-Assisted Violence, Brief Nudity, and Inappropriate Glitch Abuse. Viewer discretion advised.

In this final installment of the famous Phantasy Star series, the protagonist, while out on a routine assignment, uncovers evidence pointing to a sinister threat to the entire solar system. One thing leads to another and he and the rest of his party eventually find themselves fighting the root of all evil.

Even if killing the root of all evil would end everyone's problems, the team decides to take a few side jobs. As a result, they become even stronger and do things that would be impossible in a regular speedrun.

Tool-assisted runs are more than just running to the end of a game as quickly as possible; precision also plays a huge factor. As proof, look no further than... mini-golf?

While the segments of input are very short, a great deal of work is needed to figure out exactly what the best shots are in order to complete the holes in the fastest possible time.

If you enjoyed watching this, also check out another mini-golf run with even zanier courses.

Ristar is a large, colorful game with good music. It also has water-themed levels that aren't slow and boring, which is a true rarity.

As Bag of Magic Food so excellently put it, "Starface has stretchy arms and wastes time spinning on poles."

The Genesis version of RoboCop 3 is a side-scrolling platform shooter. You get missions (such as rescuing your colleagues who are being kept hostage), which are divided into several smaller levels. The levels usually consist of several platforms, and are heavily populated by enemies who shoot at you. You can gather special repair kits, which will be used to restore your health after you've completed a level. RoboCop 3 is more of a shooter than its predecessors, having more and tougher enemies. Compared to the NES version, there is no zonal system damage; there are different levels, weapons and enemies.

The author of this TAS blazes through this game on the hardest difficulty in record time.

RoboCop versus The Terminator (1993) is based on a comic book that is a typical example of two popular but completely unrelated fiction universes merged into one. Such a process usually results in ruined timeline coherence for either, and this game is no exception.

As a result, we get a pretty wild mishmash of RoboCop's and Terminator's backstories in a silly plot accompanied by equally silly gameplay. This includes seemingly inescapable bullet sprays, leotard-clad baddies, exploding heads, hidden 1-ups conveniently placed in molten lava, and so on. The sheer frustration RoboCop experiences from all this madness can only be vented by banging his head on a rock!
(You wish any of this was a joke, but it's actually all there.)

The Genesis version of this game is notable for the amount of gore and other PG-13 goodies, as well as for the ability to abuse death and other things that make it most suitable for a TAS.

Shinobi 3 is a high class platformer with amazing graphics and sound. You control the ninja Musashi, who in this update has many new moves and abilities. He begins the game armed with 0 shurikens, but apparently someone felt the need to leave some conveniently in his way to use.

The author shows an extremely entertaining route featuring abuse of the Jump kick move, using wallkicks to fly up sheer cliffs, and even sacrificing lives to smash bosses.

During autoscroll sections Dammit is sure to entertain you by insulting the inept hordes of enemies, insulting the Genesis hardware itself in one special palette error case, and pulling some disappearing acts crazy enough to be worthy of a Ninja. He also made 2 minutes and 45 seconds of the previous run disappear in a cloud of smoke.

WARNING: The awesomeness of Hyper Sonic may damage your eyes or trigger seizures in susceptible people.


Note: This movie begins from a save state from the end of regular mode in order to access Hyper Sonic from the beginning of the game. There is no other way to access it outside of a hack. We normally do not accept movies which begin from a save state.

Award - Sega TAS of 2014
Ludicrous-speed bouncing around. Completed without collecting any emeralds, with both Sonic and Tails controlled by the player.

This run takes everything you know about Sonic 3 & Knuckles and turns it upside-down. It extensively uses the "scroll objects offscreen to pass through them" trick to zip and warp to places that shouldn't be reached, break bosses, and effectively skip entire stages.

This latest effort by Aglar and marzojr represents the first published improvement of this run in over four years, and the first time since this run, over seven years ago, that the authors replayed the entire game instead of replaying only select levels and then splicing input from the previous movie. Every single level is faster, and there are some surprising new glitches in several stages. For more details, see the run's comments.


The downloadable encodes in the second set use a camhack, which attempts to always keep Sonic onscreen and puts HD sprites on top of the background to make the TAS look even better.

In this run of Sonic 3 & Knuckles, Sonic has decided that getting all the emeralds is the only way to go and as such powers his way through the special stages to achieve this (and a perfect ending). This run also avoids using a glitch called horizontal underflow, which is explained in the author's comments.

For those that have seen the Knuckles 100% run (or just don't like waiting around), there is a second, smaller encode that omits the emerald collection, loading/end of stage screens and removes the Hyper Sonic flash/music.

This run aims to complete all levels in the game, which includes the optional intermediate levels, and the now featured Multiball levels. These only appear after collecting all rings on the map, thus those need to be gotten too.

Dr. Robotnik is at it again, and this time he's set up a Pinball Defense System inside a volcano. Fortunately, Sonic makes a good pinball and he easily infiltrates the system, recovering most of the chaos emeralds hidden within and making short work of the bosses.

This run is an improvement of 41.70 seconds over the previous movie. The improvements come from better optimization and some new time-saving maneuvers. Reading the author's comments is highly recommended.

Fast bouncing around. This is a run of Sonic the Hedgehog which avoids zipping (gaining a large speed boost from being inside terrain), unlike the other run of this game. Therefore, most levels cannot be skipped, and instead have to be traversed using a more normal route, although the author still finds a couple of alternative methods to take shortcuts (it is hard to define hard rules to ban all glitches). In this run, the game is completed without collecting the Chaos Emeralds.

Sonic bounces around surprisingly fast. The lack of Spin Dash makes the strategy a bit different from that of Sonic 2 and Sonic 3 & Knuckles runs, since preserving your momentum becomes a lot more important. However, this doesn't prevent the author from achieving crazy velocities even with such a significant limitation. In this run, the game is completed without collecting any emeralds.

This is the eighth run of this game, improving on the previous effort by 3.18 (of in-game time), primarily due to higher optimization.

To see a movie of this game that doesn't take advantage of zips, watch the "no zips" run by Aglar.

Spoiler: Hover over the screenshot.

See this run played back on a real Genesis.

Award - Sega TAS of 2012
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (1992) was the game that introduced the Super Dash Attack. The ability, referred to as Spin Dash in later games, has become one of the most beloved features of the series and, indeed, one of the most prominent features of the speedrunning scene as a whole.

In this exhilarating movie, Aglar speeds his way through this classic's varied acts making good use of Spin Dashes to finish them in record time. The author also controls Tails—Sonic's two-tailed foxy buddy—to allow for even faster routes and making shorter work of bosses.

This is an improvement of 50.76 seconds over the previous movie, thanks to better routes and general optimization as explained in the author's comments.

- Heavy luck manipulation
- Genre: RPG
Sorcerer's Kingdom is a turn-based RPG published by Treco in 1992. In addition to an exceptional soundtrack, the game features a leveling system similar to Final Fantasy 2 (NES), in that your characters gain stats based on the actions they perform in combat. The plot places you in the role of a young man whose renowned father turns up missing after seeking to rid the Kingdom of an ultimate evil power. Desiring to follow in his footsteps, the lad seeks an audience with the King to set out as an adventurer, himself.

Normally, this game requires ample amounts of grinding up your OFFENSE stat in order to damage bosses. ars4326's run minimizes this aspect down to its bare requirements, by using heavy luck manipulation and exploiting the game's leveling system. In doing so, the final boss is slain in just under one hour. Not bad for a day's work!

The kingdom of Zebulos is once again attacked, this time by the neighboring Gedol Empire, whose ruler King Gedol decides that he can kidnap Princess Cherry as Bowser can kidnap Princess Toadstool. The rescuing hero, Sparkster, thinks that espionage is boring. So instead of infiltrating the Gedol empire by stealth, he goes in sword swinging and jetpack blazing, cutting down swaths of whatever poor lizardmen decide to get in his way.

This game is the official sequel to Rocket Knight Adventures, whereas the SNES version with the same title is some sort of spinoff. Although the control is sluggish compared to the other two games, the author generally keeps the speed and pace fast, and exploits a bunch of tricks that make some bosses fall very, very fast.

This is a 42 second improvement to the previous movie by Ferret Warlord.

Squirrel King is a platform video game produced, without license from Sega, by the Taiwanese developer Gamtec for the Mega Drive. Gamtec is also responsible for the development of a number of other games, including many for the Gamate handheld system.

It appears to be loosely based upon Capcom's Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers video games for the Nintendo Entertainment System, sharing its gameplay mechanics, although it is not licensed by Disney. As in the aforementioned game, the main character must throw crates at the enemies in order to defeat them.

This game was eventually used as the basis for the unofficial Mega Drive Super Mario World game. Some of the levels in this game have their background music based on that of the Super NES video game Donkey Kong Country.

Completed on the hardest difficulty.

Compared to the previous movie, this is over 10 minutes faster. Primarily due to the use of 2-players and a glitch that skips most of the last level.

In part three of the Streets of Rage series, Mr. X is back and this time his plan involves replacing public officials with his own robots. Only Axel, Blaze, Skate, and newcomer Dr. Zan can stop him. Streets of Rage 3 features all of the beat 'em up action you would expect from a Streets of Rage game.

One new feature is the special move power bar, where it only costs energy to do a special move if the bar isn't full. Also new is the ability to do special maneuvers with different weapons, depending on the character. For example, Skate has no special move with the pipe, but he does have one with the knife. The opposite is true for Axel. Any weapon Dr. Zan picks up is turned into energy balls which he can throw at the enemies. Secret characters and multiple endings also add replay value.

In this run, watch atro city stylishly dispose of a lot of thugs and robots using Blaze and Dr. Zan, clearing a long game in only about 38 minutes. A glitch is used which does damage much more quickly when two characters attack multiple enemies at the same time. For more details, read the submission comments.

This is a hacked version of Sonic the Hedgehog. The title character is replaced by his sidekick, Miles "Tails" Prower. The levels remain unchanged.

There is more than just an appearance change to this game. Tails' abilities remain intact. If you haven't seen Sonic the Hedgehog completed before, you may wish to do so before seeing what a character with flight and a spindash can accomplish.

There is also a run for a Knuckles hack of Sonic the Hedgehog, done by JXQ. It replaces Tails with Knuckles and flying with climbing and gliding.

The Legend of Galahad is a side-scrolling adventure/platformer for the Sega Genesis. The game is a port of Leander for the Amiga, which was the first game developed by Travellers Tales. You play as Galahad on his quest to stop the Wicked Wiz of the East who has made off with Princess Leandra. Galahad must explore 21 levels in 3 different worlds in search of a hidden key in each level to progress, collecting coins to buy rune bombs, armor, and sword upgrades along the way.

The8bitbeast rushes through this game quickly, especially once the Tempest Blade upgrade is obtained. It is carefully managed to provide well-timed speedups in the player's movement, and it also leads to some zipping glitches. For more details, see the run's comments.

The Lion King is about a lion who becomes king. It takes about 17 minutes and is mostly paperwork, but it does involve some prancing around the Pride Lands.

Mukki manages to complete the game (and, subsequently, expedite the process of becoming king) over 30 seconds faster than the previous movie. The author does this using tricks such as catching ledges and glitching past leopards.

We have a TAS of the SNES port here: [2716] SNES The Lion King (USA) by Tompa in 12:51.2.

In this action/puzzle game, you control three Vikings lost in time and space, each with their own special abilities needed to solve the levels.

This movie controls three characters simultaneously. Archanfel manages to improve the previous TAS by 8 minutes and 17 seconds through much better optimization. See the author's comments for what was improved.

Keep in mind that only Vikings that are onscreen can be controlled.

The Pirates of Dark Water is remarkable for its eccentric setting, utilizing the source material's melding of swashbuckling adventures, sword-and-sorcery fantasy, and Road Warrior-inspired fashion aesthetics. Drawing from the cartoon's backstory, players fight rival pirates as well as fantastic creatures sent to hinder the heroes from finding the Treasure of Rule by the evil pirate-lord Bloth.

The game features the main crew of the 1990s TV show - Ren, Ioz, and Tula - searching for the Treasures of Rule in order to rid the world of Mer of the Dark Water and return Mer and Ren's homeland, Octopon, to its former glory.

Once again Babs Bunny has been kidnapped by Montana Max and it's time for Buster Bunny to save the day. This time it's in the very fast paced Genesis version, Buster's Hidden Treasure. The game's physics and level design seem to borrow from Sonic the Hedgehog, which for a TAS is a very good thing.

The author rushes through stages very quickly and with very accurate jumping, saving more than 18 seconds over the predecessor movie.

- Best ending
- One player in a multiplayer game
ToeJam and Earl in Panic on Funkotron is the sequel to the first ToeJam and Earl game for the Sega Genesis. Both games are well-known for their distinctive funk soundtracks. However, unlike the first game, which has randomly generated levels, this game is more of a conventional side-scrolling platformer.

In this game, Funkotron has been invaded by Earthlings, and it's up to our heroes to fix the problem by capturing Earthlings in Trap-o-matic jars and sending the jars to Earth on rocketships. Early in the game, you'll see ToeJam visit a special area called the Hyperfunk Zone multiple times. After these visits, he has unlimited use of superjars, which require fewer throws to bottle enemies than ordinary jars do.

This run gets the good ending by finding the 10 favorite items of Lamont, the Great Funkapotamus. All of the items are needed to get Lamont out of the Funk Dimension at the end of the game. The objects themselves are hidden in secret doors, most of which don't even exist until you've officially asked your friends for directions, but a few can be entered early without the need to trigger the dialogue.

Vectorman (1995) is one of the later games for Genesis; it sports multiple gameplay modes, pre-rendered 3D models and some very nice visual effects.

According to its plot, the Earth's population decided they have polluted it enough, and migrated elsewhere, leaving robots made of orbs ("orbots") behind to clean up the mess. One of the higher level orbots gets his head accidentally attached to a nuclear warhead, goes insane and usurps total control over all mechanical beings left on the planet. This is the state the main hero, orbot Vectorman, finds it in after returning from one of his garbage discharging missions.

This is an improvement of 36 seconds over the previous movie.

Vectorman 2 is a somewhat darker sequel to the original game involving Vectorman, an "orbot" (robot made of orbs). In this game, Vectorman's sludge barge suddenly gets blasted by a missile. He escapes and ends up in a place infested by mutant insects led by the horrendous Black Widow Queen, whose plan is to take over the Earth and kill all humans, as expected.

This is an improvement of nearly 26 seconds over mmbossman's previous movie. Time savings come from better optimization, lag reduction, and a new trick that effectively allows triple jumping. The author's comments explain the improvements in greater detail.

He also takes rockets to the face while fighting a helicopter just to squeeze in faster time, showing you just what extremes he will go to entertain you. There is also a wonky palette error glitch in one particular stage.

In X-Men 2: Clone Wars, the alien race Phalanx invades the earth and the X-Men and some X-Women try to stop them.

You get to choose which X-Man to play every stage as. Most of the time Nightcrawler is used because he has the highest movement speed. Second in command is Wolverine because he has the second highest speed and also deals a ton of damage.

The game is unique in the regard that it starts as soon as you power on your console. No SEGA logo, no title screen, no character select. Normally the game pseudorandomly gives you Beast, but changing the types of controllers (3- or 6-button) throws off the start-up timing enough that a faster character can be gotten.

This movie is 5:05.28 minutes shorter than the previous publication thanks to a variety of new tricks explained in the authors' comments.

You would expect a game of mini-golf to not be particularly interesting to watch, much less a TAS thereof. To put it mildly, zany describes both the TAS and the game perfectly - for mini-golf, at least.

Watch as courses covering everything from the classic windmill to a pinball table to a pastiche of Breakout are made to look absolutely trivial by masterful precision in hitting the ball.

This game is similar to Marble Madness, except that instead of controlling the ball directly, various aspects of the course are controlled instead.

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.

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.

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.

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.
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.
