H.E.R.O. is a rare fast-paced platformer for the Atari 2600. You control a man with a gyropack who must traverse caves, avoid dangerous enemies, and use a few sticks of dynamite to blast open paths in order to rescue trapped miners.

The author, FractalFusion, chooses the first play mode to start from Level 1 and play through all 20 levels once.

Baby Roo has been kidnapped by monkeys, and it's up to Mama Roo to come to the rescue! Starting out at the bottom of the screen, she must hop and climb up the various ladders and platforms to the top where Baby Roo is being held captive. The monkeys will try to stop her by throwing or dropping apples and knocking her off the platforms, but Mama can fight back. With her boxing gloves on, she can knock them out with a single punch!

BrunoVisnadi improves the previous glitchy movie by 9.57 seconds, mostly through increased usage of the jumping trick.

Pitfall II: Lost Caverns is a platforming video game originally released for the Atari 2600 in 1984. The sequel to the popular Pitfall!, it opens up the world into a free-roaming adventure instead of progressing on a linear path.

This run is different from the any% TAS in that it does everything necessary to achieve the maximum score. This means avoiding falling down pits (which decreases your score by 100 each time) and following a much longer route in order to obtain all items.

Alyosha improves the previous run by 9.11 seconds, thanks to a new trick and better optimisation. Please read the author's comments for more details.

The sequel to the popular Pitfall!, it opens up the world into a free-roaming adventure instead of progressing on a linear path. Among the other new features are swimming sections, save points, and catchy music.

Pitfall Harry's quest in this game is to find the Raj diamond, his niece Rhonda and his cowardly lion companion, Quickclaw.

In this TAS, solarplex aims to complete the game in the fastest time possible with no regard for his score. The same author also made another run that aims for the highest possible score.

Before reminiscing about a man I knew when I was young, before rescuing a hero named Joe, there were games where you played as Joe himself! The Bionic Commando arcade game, sequel to Commando, introduces the first hero in a platform game who couldn't even jump, which spawned many sequels.

Just when you thought all the early Bionic Commando games were TAS'd and done with, Mukki brings Bionic Commando back to life, as if it were a long dead World War II dictator resurrected by a madman as part of a plan for world domination.

In this game, Mukki demonstrates grappling and kicking ability, whilst avoiding hordes of soldiers futilely attempting to prevent Joe from doing his duty and destroying their weapons of medium sized destruction.

Set in a post-apocalyptic New York, Double Dragon is the story of Billy and Jimmy Lee, twin brothers trained in the fighting style of Sou-Setsu-Ken. Together, they manage a small martial arts training school, teaching their students in self-defense. One day, Billy's girlfriend, Marian, is kidnapped off the street by the "Black Warriors", a savage street gang led by a man named Willy. The Black Warriors demand the Lee brothers disclose their martial arts secrets in exchange for Marian's freedom. The Lee brothers set out on a rescue mission to crush the Black Warriors and save Marian.

Released on many systems, this game was so popular that they even released it for cellular phones and made a board game. Even a Hollywood movie has been made.

Sugarfoot improves his previous TAS by 38.72 seconds, thanks to newly discovered combos, better optimisation and further lag reduction. Please read the author's comments for more details.

We also have TASes of the NES port and the unlicensed Genesis port.

In this entry of the popular Metal Slug series, the evil would-be dictator General Morden launches another attempt to take over the world - or so it seems on the surface; this game proves that Morden is no Dr Wily by having the true villains turn out to be something else entirely.

Several of this game's stages branch; this run takes the shortest possible route through the game.

Metal Slug X (1999) is an updated version of Metal Slug 2, the second installment of an immensely popular run'n'gun series released on the Neo Geo MVS. The games are notable for incredibly detailed pixel graphics, fluid animation, and good humor; but the real key to their longevity is, of course, their high difficulty as far as survival goes.

This is AngerFist's debut performance on FinalBurn Alpha. Please read the discussion thread if you experience desyncs.

In Neo Turf Masters, you can pick one of six available golfers and compete on a number of golf courses around the world, including Japan (Fujiyama Oriental Golf Club), America (Grand Canyon Golf Course), Australia (Blue Lagoon Golf Course), and Germany (Baden Golf Course). The game features two modes of play: Stroke Play, in which the player attempts to get the best score by playing all 18 holes, and Match Play, in which two players compete to see who can win more of the 18 holes.

This run by mamuuuut plays the toughest course (Australia) and aims to get the lowest (best) final score while showing off unusual or unexpected paths.

Osman is a arcade game in the spirit of Strider. It's a very obscure and underrated arcade game, which didn't see much of the light of day, thanks to various issues with the hardware... and the fact that the game is unforgivingly hard. The game never once lets you breathe, and in unassisted play, there are a lot of things to manage at the same time. This, along with the 3 health you start out with, can make clearing with just a single credit a nightmare.

The game mostly revolves along Osman and his power: he has the power to make clones of himself when he attacks that stay for a varying amount of time and reproduce the attack he just did.

This run is a 56.03 improvement over the previous one by the same author. Note that the real time of this run is 5:47.02 - The extra 1:10 is because the author puts his initials in the high score table after the credits roll.

Jumpman Junior is a game developed by Randy Glover, who described it as a "lite" version of Jumpman containing 12 levels for users without disk drives. In it, you need to defuse all of the bombs placed on Jupiter by terrorists. To do this, you must climb up ladders, touch the vines, and, of course, jump.

adelikat, in the site's first ColecoVision run ever, completes this game in 4:48.58 by jumping through walls, abusing deaths, and moving very fast.

Note: The character should not be confused with Mario, who was originally named Jumpman. Interestingly enough, Glover cited Donkey Kong as inspiration for this game. It is not known whether the naming is a coincidence or not.

Commander Keen 5: The Armageddon Machine (1991) is a part of the popular Commander Keen saga, developed by id Software. It is a direct continuation of the previous episode, in which Keen has learned from the Oracle of Gnosticus IV that the evil Shikadi plan to blow up the galaxy with their doomsday device, the Omegamatic (It slices! It dices! It causes a 100,000 light year-diameter quantum explosion!). Naturally, he sets out to sabotage the machine and stop the Shikadi.

Using a series of glitches, Keen completes only four stages to get to the end game, only one of which takes any significant length of time, and destroys the Quantum Explosion Dynamo, the core of the Omegamatic in the impossibly short time of 2:42. In the process, he manages to inadvertently prevent the Shikadi from accomplishing their escape (though you have to watch the ending very closely to figure out that this has happened here).

Although this is not the first submitted DOS movie, it has the distinction of being the first to be published, thanks to use of the recently approved emulator JPC-RR.

Hero's Quest: So You Want To Be A Hero (later re-released as Quest for Glory: So You Want To Be A Hero to avoid trade-mark issues) is an adventure game published by Sierra in 1989. The story goes as follows: In the valley barony of Spielburg, the evil ogress Baba Yaga has cursed the land and the baron who tried to drive her off. His daughter has disappeared and his son has been transformed into a bear, while the land is ravaged by monsters and brigands. The Valley of Spielburg is in need of a Hero able to solve these problems. The player's character is a customized adventurer whose name and class is chosen by the player. The game follows the Hero, who is a recent graduate of the Famous Adventurer's Correspondence School, on his journey into the land. He must help people and become a proclaimed Hero.

c-square and mrprmiller don't venture around a lot and become heroes in record time.

Due to how fast the actions are, a slowed down encode that plays the TAS at 25% of the regular speed is available.

Jazz Jackrabbit is one of the earliest products released by what was then known as Epic MegaGames, better known these days for producing the Unreal engine. It was viewed initially as being a pastiche of the Sonic the Hedgehog games was and arguably developed along those lines, bearing much of the same fast platformer action.

This run completes the shareware version of the game, which only contains the first episode. You can also watch runs from the same author that complete the two Christmas special episodes of this game.

Quest for Glory II: Trial by Fire is the sequel to Hero's Quest. It takes place in the town of Shapeir and the desert surrounding it, in a Middle East-like environment. It seems that the powerful elemental spirits have been troubling the Shapeir folk recently. Something, or someone, is behind those troubles. It is the hero's task to find out what is going on, get acquainted with the town's inhabitants and prove once more that he is worthy of his heroic title.

c-square survives the trial and defeats Ad Avis in record time.


The second YouTube stream cuts out the first waiting period in Raseir and shortens the second wait in the same town from 3 minutes (normal speed) to 30 seconds (6x speed).

Dawn of Sorrow (2005), the first installment of Castlevania on Nintendo DS, is a direct sequel to GBA hit Aria of Sorrow. Everyone is trying to kill our hero Soma Cruz, since in the previous game he absorbed all of Dracula's attributes. You can always trust weird cults to try and bring about the end of the world by unleashing this power.

This short glitched movie beats the game in a mere 8 minutes and 20 seconds. It is achieved by collecting souls and setting important flags just by zipping around the castle, allowing the player to complete it without even seeing the last boss.

The game is so fully broken at this point though, that there really is no plot in this run. Or final boss. Or much of anything at all. Using improved versions of the glitches used in its predecessor, this movie completes the game in half the time. More details about the glitches can be found in the author's comments.

The second Castlevania title released on Nintendo DS after Dawn of Sorrow, this game is a direct sequel to Bloodlines on Sega Genesis. Dracula rises from the dead yet again (cue groan), and it's up to Jonathan Morris, helped out by Charlotte Aulin, a powerful mage student, to defeat him.

Beating Dracula into a pile of dust in under five minutes wasn't enough for our heroes, so this time they wreck his entire castle and surrounding areas before killing him. Every boss is slain, so you get to see more of that fast "showtime" action. Significant glitching is used; read the author's comments for more information.

This run is an improvement of 8.84 seconds over the previous run by the same author and uses many of the same glitches. A slightly different route selection sends Dracula back to his coffin even faster.

The second Castlevania title released on Nintendo DS after Dawn Of Sorrow, this game is a direct sequel to BloodLines on Sega Genesis. Dracula rises from the dead yet again (cue groan), and it's up to Jonathan Morris, helped out by Charlotte Austin, a powerful mage student, to defeat him.

The use of glitchy warps is not new to Castlevania runs, but what is new is the creative use of switching between the main characters for basic character movement. We dare you to not have "Jonasan! Sharotto! Jonasan! Sharotto! Jonasan! Sharotto!" stuck in your head after watching the run.

Be sure to read the submission text for explanations on the glitches used and the route choices.

In order to ensure that the weapon choice and route is optimal, the author created an alternate fully optimized test run with a new route. The run enters the final boss sooner with a weaker weapon, but spends more time fighting- so much so that 2/3ths of the movie is spent fighting Dracula! Despite using a newer version of the emulator to remove the lag issues of the published movie, the final time still comes to 47 seconds slower. The movie is different enough in execution to warrant a mention; see the canceled run.

The use of glitchy warps is not new to Castlevania runs, but what is new is the creative use of switching between the main characters for basic character movement. We dare you to not have Jonasan! Sharotto! Jonasan! Sharotto! Jonasan! Sharotto! stuck in your head after watching the run.

Main improvements come from switching to a newer emulator version that helped eliminate most of the lag, better luck manipulation and optimized movement all around. The author has made a ghost script video for easier comparison. Be sure to read the previous version's submission text for explanations on the glitches used and the route choices.

In order to ensure that the weapon choice and route is optimal, the author created an alternate fully optimized test run with a new route. The run enters the final boss sooner with a weaker weapon (Final Sword), but spends more time fighting — so much so that 2/3 of the movie is spent fighting Dracula! Even though the emulator version was the same as the one used here, the final time is still over two minutes higher.

Like many Castlevania games, Portrait of Ruin has extra alternate play modes available after completing the primary quest. In this case, you get to play as Richter Belmont and Maria Renard, using a dual character system very similar to the main quest.

Richter and Maria blaze a path of destruction through the castle, pacifying foes with a combination of crosses, doves and other wonderful things. Complex multiple-character motion is used to move as quickly as possible; see the author's comments for an in depth explanation.

The second Castlevania title released on Nintendo DS after Dawn of Sorrow, this game is a direct sequel to BloodLines on Sega Genesis. Dracula rises from the dead yet again (cue groan), and it's up to Jonathan Morris, helped out by Charlotte Aulin, a powerful mage student, to defeat him.

This run saves 5:21.21 over the previous run (more than half its length!). First of all, the run uses a previously proposed alternate route. This route would be longer, except that there is also a glitch used which allows attacks to hit more often than they should, and this glitch makes the new route viable. Lastly, there are also faster movement methods used. As a result, you will (un)fortunately hear a lot less of Jonasan! Sharotto! Jonasan! Sharotto! Jonasan! Sharotto! in this version.

This run is an improvement of 27.81s over the previous run by the same author and uses many of the same glitches. The areas of improvement include reduced lag, shopping optimization, and manipulation of the enemy used to gain levels prior to the final boss.

Contra 4 (2007) is largely a combined remake of the early NES and SNES Contra titles, featuring remixed music and vastly improved visuals utilizing both screens of the DS as if they were one contiguous screen.

Watch Bill Rizer embark on a new colorful adventure in the shirtless land, this time making even less sense than ever before. To quote the game's ending: Whatever the truth may have been, it was lost to time as the invaders became a mere footnote in the pages of history. A footnote which read: they sure blew up good.

Amen.

The classic Metal Slug series comes to DS with Metal Slug 7. Although there is only one player this time, this version is notable for allowing the player to keep two weapons and switch freely between them.

The author, mtvf1, completes this game without deaths in a mere 23 minutes and 11 seconds, using Marco.

There is also a version that uses Eri and Tarma. Deaths and continues are used in that version, which is also the only way to switch characters in this game.

You may also check out other Metal Slug runs such as Metal Slug, Metal Slug X, Metal Slug 3, Metal Slug 4 and Metal Slug Advance.

The classic Metal Slug series comes to the DS with Metal Slug 7. Although there is only one player this time, this version is notable for allowing the player to keep two weapons and switch freely between them.

This run by zk547 uses Eri through all 7 missions without dying. Eri is chosen because of her ability to aim grenades in 8 different directions and receive twice the number of grenades from the bomb/grenade item. The extra grenades become useful throughout the run and make her a lot faster than the other characters, especially in the final mission. Despite not dying at all, this run still manages to beat the previous run in this category by 10.11 seconds as well as the Marco run by almost two minutes.

Also check out the runs of other Metal Slug games such as Metal Slug, Metal Slug X, Metal Slug 3, Metal Slug 4, Metal Slug 5 and Metal Slug Advance.

This is an improvement of 5.76 seconds over the previous published run. Most of the time saved comes from the new soft reset done at the beginning of the TAS, skipping the star touching animation, but also due to more optimization on most of the stars.

This game is Super Mario Bros, the original, but on Famicom Disk System. It is much similar to the ROM version of the game, except for one minor difference that is demonstrated here.

The −1 stage is completely different. In the NES and Unisystem versions, the −1 stage repeats infinitely and cannot be completed, but in FDS, it can be completed, and then come −2 and −3.

The −3 stage in FDS is a castle level, and completing it ends the game, even though it says "princess is in another castle". The princess is not seen in the ending, but she is sighted twice in the −1 stage, as shown in this movie.

This movie is about 2 seconds faster than the previous movie, most of which come from a flag-pole glitch in -1.

Mario has eaten too many poisonous mushrooms and as a result, decided to go on a furious killing spree. In this berserker state he has also gained the new secret ability to walk through walls at will.

This version is really faster than the previous on some levels, but emulator differences (specifically Famtasia's faster loading time) balances out the time.


This is the real Super Mario Bros 2. It was never officially released in the USA and Europe. It was later ported to SNES, and released as "Lost Levels" on Super Mario All-stars. Phil remembers there were pirate copies of this game under the name Super Mario Bros. 3.

This is a TAS of the Japanese Super Mario Bros. 2, a.k.a. 'The Lost Levels', using a suboptimal punk called 'Luigi'. He jumps higher than Mario, but acts slower in many ways. However, the movie is in no way worse than the Mario version - some new creative solutions have been found.

This is a 189 frame improvement over the previous movie.

This is a historic movie, submitted and obsoleted before the creation of the database-based (and wiki-based) site engine, before July 2004.

It was inserted to the database in a history revival project by Bisqwit in autumn 2006.

As for the movie itself... This is Bisqwit's 2nd attempt but our first publication on record. It uses the same warp route as modern movies but does not use modern time-saving glitches (as they were not known at the time). Power-ups are avoided in this movie. In 1-2 there is a nice use of a wall-jump to save time.

It was inserted to the database in a history revival project by Bisqwit in autumn 2006.

This movie (Fried's 2nd attempt) beats Bisqwit's movie by almost 3 seconds. Improvement come from overall better precision. The most significant one seems to come at the end of 5-1 where a koopa is used to launch mario up to the top of the wall.

The total completion time of a warp-using Super Mario Bros 2 run from poweron to hitting the axe has now reached 8:20.57, which is 0.86 seconds faster than the previous version which was released a few days ago.

This time we see Mario eat a mushroom and a fireflower. Lots of more action than before. Also more glitches. Read the submission comments for more details.

Here is the Famicom Disk System version of Zelda II (known as "The Legend of Zelda 2 - Link no Bouken" in Japan) beaten fast by Arc. It is 5:24 faster than the previous version by Boco.

The Japanese version was played because the USA version causes an error in Famtasia. The versions are generally the same, but there are some differences — most noticeably seen in the leveling systems and the load screens. We recommend reading the author's annotation of this movie.

Despite its length and being made with Famtasia, the author considers this movie to be his best one.

Note: Famtasia emulates the sound of this game incorrectly in some places.

Those who greatly dislike that Aria of Sorrow's main character isn't related to the Belmont clan whatsoever can safely relax, because the powerhouse known as Julius Belmont enters the stage to destroy every boss faster then Soma ever could.

Julius is only available to those who have completed the main quest. While he can't do most of Soma Cruz's fancy tricks, he can get around just as quickly by glitching through walls and hopping madly around the castle, producing almost inhuman sounds with every jump.

Those who greatly dislike that Aria of Sorrow's main character isn't related to the Belmont clan whatsoever can safely relax, because the powerhouse known as Julius Belmont enters the stage in the relatively short run of this Castlevania installment.

Julius is only available to those who have completed the main quest, but unlike Soma Cruz, Belmont can't go through walls or use other fancy tricks like that. Being very upset about it, he hops around the castle madly, producing almost inhuman sounds with every jump.

This is an improvement of 3.38 seconds over the previous publication, primarily due to new strategies in the Headhunter fight.

The Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow main quest TAS has become even more glitched. Using an obscure out-of-room travel technique involving in-game saving and subsequent dying, klmz plows through the game with the confident pace of a cold-blooded killing machine in a little under seven minutes — a whole 31.72 seconds faster than the previous movie by the same author!

We recommend reading the author's comments for more information on the death warp glitch and other time-saving techniques used to make this improvement happen.

If you would like to see more of the game, we also have a run that does not make use of major warp glitches, as well as a run that collects every soul in the game.

Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow, beaten in less than half an hour from a new game without taking damage from anything.

The author skips getting the Undine soul and a decently-sized portion of the castle by using an edge-of-ledge oversight in the game's programming to gain a little extra height.

There is quite a lot of luck manipulation in this movie, but some familiarity with the game is required to notice it.

The other installments of Castlevania on the GBA have extreme warping glitches, and this game is no exception. Using enemy platforms and selected soul abilities to disregard the boundaries of the game, pirate_sephiroth manages to cut off nearly half the time from the normal route. Moreover, the author proves glitch warping to be so effective that the usual teleporters are left completely ignored, and several parts of the castle have been skipped entirely.

You may notice some tiny slowdowns before getting a certain item or soul: those are done for the means of luck manipulation, which is very tough in this game. You may want to read the author's comments for more details.

Note: this run is played on hard mode where the previous movie by Atma left off. We do not usually accept movies beginning from a save. Please read our rules to see our reasons.

Unlike the other Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow run, this plays as Julius who is only playable after beating the game. Julius' abilities are much greater than those the other Castlevania heroes have.

Watch Julius show off his skills and beat Graham in the fastest inhuman time yet!

An improved movie of Aria of Sorrow, using warping glitches to travel in- and outside of the castle with extreme speed.

This time it's played on Normal difficulty level, unlike the previous version by pirate_sephiroth. There are several reasons for this choice — you might want to read the discussion threads for this game for more details. Considering the inability to skip in-game dialogues (which is only possible on Hard mode), the route was also changed accordingly.

Like in the previous movie, you may notice the author stopping for a brief moment before making the final blow to some enemies. This is due to luck manipulation, which is one of the main speed factors for all speedruns of this game.

When played normally, Castlevania: Circle of the Moon is a rather long game, in which exploration, leveling up, and killing bosses in order to gain access to different items or portions of the castle is necessary. However, a bit of luck manipulation and a series of glitches involving DSS cards throw all these aspects of gameplay out of the window, allowing the player to warp directly to Dracula and kill him humiliatingly in just over 5 minutes.

This movie is a mere 61 frame improvement over the joint venture between Cardboard & zggzdydp.

Castlevania, again, only this time played with Maxim and without glitching through walls and completing the game intended, unlike the glitch-warped run. What constitutes as intended in this run is debatable, since Maxim zooms through the castle faster than Sonic on espresso, and sends shurikens ripping through bosses before they realize they can attack you.

This is a really, really fast TAS through Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance played with Maxim who is only available after the game is beaten once. Most of the game is glitched through by being stuck in different walls, so it's hard to explain what happened in this; see it for yourself.

In this run, JXQ makes good use of the various items available and performs many feats of wonder to practically fly or slide through the game, occasionally stopping to deliver a couple dozen of critical hits to a nearby boss. That said, it is the fastest paced GBA Castlevania run (despite being the longest of them all) — so if you like the series, this is the movie to watch.

However, if you still find this movie to be too long, make sure to see the second quest completed in less than half a minute!

Selected quotes from the author: Come follow on the adventure through a castle that contains no less than eighty clashing colors in each room! Be amazed as Juste Belmont, Simon's grandson, has to do the usual vampire hunting despite looking nothing like his grandfather (or a man at all). Question his motives when he takes time out of his rescue mission to decorate the basement he will soon destroy! Feel the pain as Juste struggles to understand that there actually are two castles!! (Ouch my brain!)

The first quest completion time of this fast paced game got nearly cut in half thanks to Juste's ability to sink into walls when going at very high speed. Please, don't try this at home!

This is a 56 second improvement over the author's previous movie.

However, if you still think there is not enough zipping through walls, make sure to see the second quest completed in less than half a minute!

Selected quotes from JXQ:
Come follow on the adventure through a castle that contains no less than eighty clashing colors in each room! Be amazed as Juste Belmont, Simon's grandson, has to do the usual vampire hunting despite looking nothing like his grandfather (or a man at all). Question his motives when he takes time out of his rescue mission to decorate the basement he will soon destroy! Feel the pain as Juste struggles to understand that there actually are two castles!! (Ouch my brain!)

This is a really, really fast TAS through Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance played with Maxim who is only available after the game is beaten once. Most of the game is glitched through by being stuck in different walls, so it's hard to explain what happened in this; see it for yourself.

This is a 20 frame improvement over Comicalflop's previous movie.

Note: This movie starts where the main quest movie left off. We do not usually accept movies beginning from a save. Please read our rules to see our reasons.

In Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance, the Belmont clan must again rise to the challenge: Dracula's castle is in disarray and is in serious need of an interior decorator! In this movie, Juste Belmont zips through walls, under floors, and over zombies with the very important task of rearranging furniture. (He also defeats Dracula and rescues his best friends along the way, but that's not very important.)

This movie is a 4:13.81 improvement over its predecessor, with route changes and more efficient kills speeding it up.

In this game, the player controls Juste Belmont, one of the later descendants of the Belmont clan. The goal of the game, as usual for Castlevania games, is to defeat Dracula in his castle. Along the way, some bosses are beaten, and some abilities and items are obtained. Furthermore, to obtain the best ending, Juste is supposed to acquire all of Dracula's remains and Maxim's bracelet.

In this branch, the author forgoes the "wall-sinking" glitch (used in this movie) which would allow Juste to warp to far-away places. Thus, this movie shows off more of the game.

We also have movies featuring the unlockable character Maxim, with wall-sinking or without.

This is a 171-second improvement over zggzdydp's movie. Like in the previous movies, the author picked up an item to display those cool CRITICAL's for entertainment, at the cost of some time.

However, if you still think there is not enough zipping through walls, make sure to see the second quest completed in less than half a minute!

This is a really fast TAS through Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance played as Maxim, who is only available after the game is beaten. Unlike in the glitch-warped run, the protagonist doesn't directly fight Dracula and instead defeats every boss, reaching Dracula the intended way. However, this doesn't stop Maxim from making short work of every boss and sinking into walls wherever he wants.

McBobX's run in this category saves about 1:50.95 over the previous movie due to route changes and optimization.


Note: This movie starts where the main quest movie left off. We don't usually accept movies beginning from a save, though. Please read our rules to see our reasons.

This run collects all of the pieces of furniture, which causes a certain room in the castle to become heavily decorated. This run uses wall-sinking glitches to warp very quickly between different parts of the castle, but it still explores a large portion of the castle. For another run featuring Juste which uses wall-sinking and ignores the castle decorations, please see this run.

We also have movies featuring the unlockable character Maxim, with wall-sinking or without.

Ending score: 32074970.

In another delightfully colorful Kirby game, Kirby is out taking a walk when a dark copy of Meta Knight appears, slices him into four different Kirbys (each having only a limited ability to inhale), breaks the mirror leading to the Mirror World, and scatters the eight pieces far and wide. To save the real Meta Knight and free Dream Land from great evil, the four Kirbys set out to traverse the maze and collect the pieces.

This run also utilizes a variety of different enemy abilities to help speed things along.

Kuru Kuru Kururin is an unusual game that is a mix of racing/puzzle genres. The player controls a slowly spinning stick called the Helirin, and must maneuver it through a series of mazes. The player controls the direction and speed of movement but not the Helirin's constant rotation.

In this fast-paced TAS, Ryuto chooses to ignore damage penalties in exchange for blazing fast realtime completion and creative methods of getting around the Helirin's forced rotation to squeeze into even the tiniest of gaps.

There is also a run of the sequel, Kururin Paradise.

Kururin Paradise is the sequel to Kuru Kuru Kururin. Once again you control the Helirin, but this time you have a small measure of control over it's rotation. This extra control allowed Ryuto to create a movie that can aim for fastest time without taking damage.

Also added to the sequel are several strange and entertaining minigames, such as using the Helirin to mow grass or attack intruding enemies Space Invaders style.

Super Mario Ball (スーパーマリオボール), also known as Mario Pinball Land in the US, is an adventure quest combined with a pinball game, similar to Pinball Quest.

In the game you need to flip Mario like a pinball to obtain stars and keys, defeat enemies, and advance levels.

Of course the author completes these objectives with speed and precision and often while juggling multiple balls.

MUGG improves the previous movie by 40.48 seconds, thanks to abuse of the game's Save & Quit feature and overall better optimization.

This run beats the previous run by 1.76 seconds.

The third game in the Megaman Zero subseries takes place two months after its predecessor.

It features mostly the same gameplay as its predecessors, but with a different Cyber Elf system and customizable armor. Also new are the Secret Disks, which can be analyzed for information about the series, enemies, items, and the characters.

This run ignores all the unnecessary ones.

Aside from the usual links, there are mirrors of this run available in low quality (78 MB) and high quality (1.0 GB) at the Internet Archive.
