Axiom Verge is a 2D Metroidvania platform shooter centered around the protagonist Trace, a scientist who, after an experiment gone wrong, finds himself on the world of Sudra. By the time Trace arrives on Sudra he finds this world and his civilization collapsed due to the release of the "Pathogen". With help of the Russalki (giant war machines that guard Sudra), Trace has to fight back the invading forces and return back across The Breach to Earth.

keylie rushes through the game's speedrun mode (which shows an in-game timer and disables all cutscenes) in record time.

Mari0 is a PC game created by stabyourself.net in 2012 that combines the classic Super Mario Bros. with the puzzle-platfomer Portal by giving Mario a portal gun. The game launched with 2 "mappacks", with the one most people played being the Super Mario Bros. mappack containing the original set of levels. This TAS instead showcases the other mappack which features 18 Portal-inspired puzzles spread across 9 different levels.

noahkiq and Masterjun certainly don't solve the puzzles in the Portal mappack the intended way in order to clear it in record time. Please read the authors' comments for more details.

This is the first ever publication using libTAS, which lets people TAS games that were released on Linux. It's basically the Linux counterpart of Hourglass.

SteamWorld Dig 2 is a Metroidvania-styled game released in 2017 by Image & Form, where an underground mine is explored by digging and collecting resources. As opposed to its predecessor SteamWorld Dig, the levels are not procedurally generated, except for the location of resources.

This TAS by keylie finishes the game as fast as possible by skipping upgrades and manipulating the level layout.

- Aims for in-game time instead of real-time
- Abuses unintended environment
- Genre: Action
- Genre: Platform
TowerFall Ascension is an updated release of the arrow-based single-screen arena fighting game TowerFall, which was originally released on the failed Ouya console. It builds upon the original game with a new cooperative quest mode for one or two players. Played in a normal or a hardcore difficulty mode, it offers different levels selected from a large map where different types of enemies need to be killed in multiple rounds to progress. The game also features trials, where a player has to shoot down all targets as fast as possible.

keylie completes all 48 trials, including the ones featured in the Dark World expansion, in a record in-game time of 1 minute and 13.842 seconds.

NOTE: There is no audio during the splash screen (the "Matt Makes Games" screen), the rest of the game does have audio. The movie file is also at 1000 FPS (meaning libTAS tells the game that it runs on a virtual 1000 Hz monitor), while the primary encodes are at 60 FPS, as encodes at 1000 FPS cannot be reliably played back. The secondary encodes are played at 24% speed (240 FPS), which preserves all of the frames (except for the YouTube encode).

- Best ending
- Takes damage to save time
- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Action
- Genre: Platform
Völgarr the Viking is a video game released by Crazy Viking Studios in 2013, inspired by old arcade games like Ghosts 'n Goblins or Rastan. Players take the role of the titular Völgarr, risen from the dead and commanded by Odin to find and slay the greedy dragon Fáfnir. The game has minimal presentation and story, having no formal title screen or opening menu and no cutscenes or dialogue. It has a high level of challenge and a deliberate pacing, expecting the player to proceed with caution and learn the layouts of each level, playing each through multiple times until they are mastered. It also encourages speedrunning, including a speed runner HUD option, as the game uses very few randomized elements and has many options for increasing the speed a player can get through a level.

There are two paths available after beating Stage 1, namely the Crystal path, where difficulty gradually rises, eventually reaching its peak in the Tower, and where the player has infinite retries, and the Valkyrie path, where the player has a limited amount of retries (if one loses all retries on this path, the player is going to play the Crystal path variant of the same level) and generally much harder than the Crystal path. Doing a full Valkyrie path run is necessary to obtain the best ending, as it unlocks the true final stage as well as the true last boss.

keylie slices and dices through the Valkyrie path and obtains the best ending in record time.
