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!

Author nitrogenesis improves the previous movie by 38.21 seconds through a new glitch that makes Mama Roo fall through the ground and reappear at the top of the screen. For more information, check out the author's comments.

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. This route allows the author to show off a glitch that spawns a balloon earlier than intended, which is used an additional time in this run to save 4.40 seconds over the previous run.

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.

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.

The streets of Metro City are filled with criminals who are part of a gang called Mad Gear.

Taking on the role of either Cody, Guy, or the mayor Mike Haggar himself, you must advance through six areas of the city clearing out the gang infestation. You will have to cope with a variety of thugs, ranging from firebomb-throwing maniacs to behemoth wrestlers. To defeat these thugs, you have an arsenal of punches, kicks, throws, and jump kicks at your disposal.

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.

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.

Despite the game's nonsensical name, error1 creates an entertaining run of Dramatic Battle mode, controlling both players against the cpu and using them to pummel his opponents with style. He uses the combination of Dhalsim and Rose to create entertaining combos.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Using the same basic game-destroying glitches as its predecessor, this movie completes the game 37.82 seconds faster through more optimized movement and manipulation. Unfortunately, you don't get to see the final boss, but it would probably be boring anyway.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Super Mario 64 DS is a remake of Super Mario 64 for the Nintendo DS, released in 2004 along with the system. It features improved graphics, new levels and playable characters, and most importantly in this case, a different "polish".

More importantly, it features different glitches than those featured in the runs of the original SM64.

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.

In this run, ALAKTORN and MKDasher improve their previous movie by 52.08 by using several new glitches and tricks.

Super Mario 64 DS is, as the title says, a Super Mario 64 remake for the Nintendo DS, released in 2004 along with the system.

It features improved graphics, new levels, new playable characters and, most importantly in this case, a different "polish".

If you have watched these two Super Mario 64 runs and are looking for something new, don't look further. This run introduces new and different glitches.

Arumana no Kiseki (アルマナの奇跡, Miracle(s) of Almana) is a Japan-only game by Konami with a protagonist that heavily resembles Indiana Jones. Unlike Dr. Jones, the unnamed hero does not wield a whip. Instead, he has an even more useful grappling hook that allows him to do tricks that Indiana Jones would envy and perform shortcuts that skip large portions of levels.

This beats the previous publication by 25.1 seconds. An encode with the loading screens removed can be viewed here.

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 3 frames faster than the previous one due to better wallpassing.

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.

Read the authors' comments for details.

In the strange-looking screenshot of this entry, we see Luigi becoming taller.

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 3rd attempt and is about 3 seconds faster than the previous. The time saved comes from small improvements starting in 4-1.

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.

Wondering how some tricks work? Information is available at Super Mario Bros. Tricks page.

This movie is 1.68 seconds faster than the previous version due to new routes in 1-1 and 1-2.


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.

This version is faster than the previous version, due to a different warp zone entry technique in the level 5–2. Also some other levels were changed (after 5–1).

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

The glitched 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 ploughs through the game with confident pace of a cold-blooded killing machine in a little under seven minutes — whole 5 minutes and 20 seconds faster than the previous movie by zggzdydp.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

This movie obsoletes the in-bounds Maxim run because, even though they don't have the same goals, out-of-bounds tricks were deemed more entertaining.

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!

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 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 run; see it for yourself.

In the quest for perfection, gstick has improved klmz's movie by 0.53 seconds.

If you like this run but have a craving for more Maxim action, be sure to check out the Maxim warpless run.

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!)

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Metal Slug Advance is an action shooter game from the popular series Metal Slug. In it, you are a recruit for Peregrine Falcon, training on an unnamed island with limited equipment. All seems to be going as planned, but when General Morden's troops invade the island, captures many of your allies, and attempts to build a base, you must rise to the task of fending off the approaching army.

In this run, the author, x2poet, utilizes Tyra Elson to finish the game in just less than twelve minutes, 1:09.41 faster than before, thanks to some new glitches and a route change in the final mission.

Metroid: Zero Mission is a retelling of the original Metroid's story with a couple of new plot twists and updated gameplay.

This movie improves on the previous attempt by the same author by 12 in-game seconds and 34 seconds of real time. It was achieved by using a different route (killing Ridley before Kraid), allowing more efficient time-saving tricks and skipping an elevator cutscene.

The in-game clear time is 0:21:27. The item collection rate is 21%.

This GBA game is a remake of the first Metroid game for the NES. However, this game's story continues with some new elements after the destruction of Mother Brain.

This movie was made and encoded with an emulator that lags in places where the original game doesn't. The emulator has since been fixed, and so a new version of this movie that will be encoded at the proper speed is in the making.

According to the game's internal clock, this movie's 'clear time' is 0:23:29. The item collection rate is 23%.

Metroid: Zero Mission is a retelling of the original Metroid's story with a couple of new plot twists and updated gameplay.

This movie is a long-awaited improvement to the 1st GBA TAS by BoltR. Much of the almost 3 minute improvement came from a different route (Kraid was fought before Ridley), increased precision, the lack of emulator lag*, and other tricks explained in the author's comments.

The in-game clear time is 0:21:39. The item collection rate is 22%.

* — The previous version was done before lag reduction was programmed into VisualBoy Advance, so the movie times aren't directly comparable.

After a major surgery, Samus's Power Suit has been reduced in appearance. To compensate, she decides to arm herself to the teeth with 250 missiles and more power bombs than she really needs. It's her favourite thing to do when sequence breaking isn't as feasible.

This run collects all 100 capacity increasing items for Samus's health, missiles and power bombs. The abilities recovered from the Core-X are not part of this number.

This is a 1 minute and 11 second improvement of the author's previous movie. In-game completion time is now 56:16.

Joe Osugi, bizarre 'anti-terrorist ninja', is called in to assist the local police, who seem to be completely useless in rescuing some hostages.

The game is basically a series of rooms connected together. Your job is to rescue the hostages and then escape the stage through the red door. You have in your arsenal a three-level shuriken, a sword, and a grappling hook that seems to have been stolen from Bionic Commando. Joe also has two types of special abilities: To make himself invincible and to attack all enemies on screen.

Pokémon: Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald form the third generation of Pokémon, after Pokémon: Gold and Silver. Noticeable differences include the graphics and interface, Pokémon abilities, and running shoes that allow the player to move around much faster in the overworld before getting the bike.

In this movie, GoddessMaria applies her experience with TASing the game's alternate modes to a full run, finishing in under an hour and twenty minutes using lots of luck manipulation. At some point, her trainer gets fed up with all these slow battles, flies to the end, and storms the Elite Four throwing bad eggs at anyone who wants a fight.


Note: To play the vbm, you need to have Real Time Clock on and Flash 128k as the Save Type. Real Time Clock is for sync, while Flash 128k is to prevent the game from displaying a white screen.

Pokémon: FireRed Version is an enhanced version of the original Pokémon: Red Version. Many glitches have been removed, and the random mechanics behind wild encounters have changed. This leads to very different strategies compared to our fastest runs on the original generation of games (see the Yellow and Green any% runs), and as a result, runs of this game see much more of the plot.

Watch as MKDasher crushes this game using his original water-type starter and lots of luck manipulation.

When a villain known only as Mr. Dark appears, trouble brews in Rayman's world. Mr. Dark captures the Toons - the source of light - and Rayman's friends. Without the light, evil creatures begin to roam, making the world unsafe for everyone. It's up to you, as Rayman, to free your friends and put an end to Mr. Dark's dastardly schemes!

Rayman is a side-scrolling platformer starring the titular Rayman, a big-nosed chap with no arms or legs. Rayman can jump and use his hair to hover for a short period of time. He can also attack by throwing his fists, or winding up his fists for a more powerful punch. He can occasionally find special powerups that grant him unlimited flying power, giving him the ability to navigate through tricky mazes.

Aside from the platforming action, the other notable feature of Rayman is its large, detailed and vibrant graphics, which have helped it to stand out from most other similar games in the genre.

This run proves that Knuckles the Echidna is up to the task of zipping through levels at warp speed and defeating Dr. Eggman yet again. Don't blink!

This Sonic Advance movie is unique as a speedrun in one aspect: the hero (Sonic) moves so fast that the "camera" of the game cannot even follow him. Therefore, Sonic is rarely seen in the movie.

On the rare occasions we get to watch Sonic, we get to enjoy seeing him moving through walls, charging up for another dash, or making short work of bosses.

Besides the super fast speed itself, the speed also provides Sonic an ability (glitch) to pass through platforms and walls under certain conditions.

Note: this run has two AVIs available for download. The second one is normal, 45.5 MB in size and shows the movie including the credits and all. The first one is 73.8 MB in size and it shows two screens side by side — the one on the left is identical to the normal version; the one on the right is made with a special emulator, hacked to force the game's camera to focus on Sonic, making it much easier to follow what nitsuja is doing with him. Unlike the first video, this version doesn't show the credits and anything following them.

Sonic Advance was Sonic the Hedgehog's second appearance on a Nintendo console (being beaten by Sonic Adventure 2: Battle on the GameCube by 10 days), and he brought all his friends with him. You can play as Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, or Amy on a mission to stop Dr. Eggman from taking over South Island.

The pink hedgehog Amy Rose gets a run of her own at TASVideos to go along with the Knuckles run and a couple of Sonic runs. Amy is not as fast as Sonic, but she has her own tricks for preserving speed, and she has a very useful hammer.

Yet another Sonic run by nitsuja. This time around the game doesn't allow running faster than the camera can follow. However it does allow team play constantly. This run is refreshing compared to other Sonic runs because of how different it is. Yet like the others, it does not collect the Chaos Emeralds.

It is recommended to read the author's novel to see why he chose to do many of the things he did.

Sonic Advance 3 is a Sonic game with a twist: the player can play with a friend in co-op mode or one of many multi-player modes like ring race. The game contains features from Sonic Advance and Sonic Advance 2, but with more options like choosing from 2 characters in story mode (a leading and a following character).

This run is an improvement of 1218 frames of in-game time and 2443 frames overall (31.07 seconds) compared to the predecessor movie by nitsuja.

In this game, based loosely on the 2007 summer blockbuster, we see our friendly neighborhood Spider-man zip through 15 levels and 5 bosses with speed, style, and a sexy new black suit.

In this run, mmbossman heavily abuses a technique that allows him to maintain a very high speed throughout each level, stopping only to rescue civilians or disable bombs. However, since speed isn't as important in boss fights, Spidey also gets a chance to show off some of his acrobatic and martial arts skills.

Spyro: Attack of the Rhynocs, known as Spyro Adventure in Europe, is an isometric platform game in the Spyro the Dragon series. One of the Professor's inventions has inadvertently torn a large hole in the fabric of space and time, creating a portal between the Rhynoc Lands and the Dragon Realms. Naturally, Ripto takes full advantage of this by sending his armies of rhynocs through the portal to wreak havoc. Spyro must find somehow find a way to close the portal before Ripto succeeds in taking over the Dragon Realms.

In this run, EgxHB zips through the game, using precision and a few tricks to take down Ripto in a little under 19 minutes.

In Super Monkey Ball Jr., like in the other Super Monkey Ball movies, you must guide a monkey trapped inside a transparent ball by tilting the game world across several floors. However, due to the GBA not having analog controls, it is noticeably more difficult to guide the monkey to the goal.

Silverbawxer plays through the Master stages, which are accessed by using an input password, in less than two minutes.

If there's one problem with the SNES glitched run of this game, it's that it's over too quickly - there isn't enough time to enjoy the glitches. If you agree, this run is for you - it completes the Palace of the Four Swords available only in this GBA port of the game in a very bizarre fashion so glitchy that not even the game's palette retains any sense of normalcy.

This run improves the previous by just under a minute thanks to a new route.

The Minish Cap is an addition to The Legend of Zelda series that sees our hero fight Ganondorf Vaati, retrieve and power up the Master Sword Picori Sword to once again save the land of Hyrule and rescue Princess Zelda.

Following the constant advice of a talking hat and utilizing unique items as well as getting more use out of an ocarina than simply getting around, Tompa completes this task in record time, putting Vaati back in his place in a mere hour and 48 minutes!

This is a game unusually suited for a run for a game based on a movie based on a (famous) TV series. While the game follows the movie's plot quite closely, the author manages to make it look almost incomprehensible thanks to sheer speed in glitching through the stages.

X-Men: The Official Game is based on the third X-Men film. The game lets you control either Wolverine, Colossus, Iceman or Nightcrawler through twenty-five stages of a traditional side-scrolling beat'em up platformer. You move through the levels usually to find the exit. The stages can scroll from left to right, top to bottom or are designed more like a labyrinth. Enemies are defeated using a variety of punches. The characters differ hereby in range and the damage they deal. Each character also has his own special attack and some character-specific abilities. For example, Colossus can smash certain materials while Wolverine regenerates his health over time.

In this TAS, the author makes extensive use of the teleport glitch in later stages in order to blaze through the game and defeat Master Mold in record time.

Pokémon: Gold Version and Silver Version form the second generation of Pokémon, after Red Version and Blue Version. New features include full color, a new region called Johto, and 100 all new Pokémon.

This run by bobmario511 completes the game in under an hour by manipulating luck and abusing bugs to corrupt the memory and save data. One of these bugs allows him to bring up the Pokémon menu to distort map tiles into garbage blocks that are sometimes possible to walk on, allowing the player character to get to places he normally shouldn't. For more information, see the author's comments.

We also have a run of this game that avoids all use of memory corruption.

Ash reveals his dark side, using save corruption and direct memory manipulation to catch 152 Pokémon in the blink of an eye. Then he beats the game in less than a minute (in-game time) - without ever leaving his own home, while somehow throwing an entire floor away, and 10 seconds faster than the previous run!

The TASVideos record movie for Pokémon Yellow is a glitchfest that has Ash cataloging every Pokémon in slightly over a minute. Is there any way to get more ridiculous than that? One author said yes. Using nothing but the Game Boy controller and tool-assisted precision, the game is made to run an arbitrary program. See the author's comments for the technical details.

Shantae is an obscure Game Boy Color game released over a year after the Game Boy Advance came out. Because of this, it was released in extremely small quantities. It is notable for its impressive animation and scope.

In this run, arandomgameTASer goes for 100% completion, which includes getting all upgrades, all magic dances and at least one of each usable item. The run also collects the Tinkerbat form which is only accessible if the game is played on a Game Boy Advance. More information is provided in the author's comments

We also have a run that just completes the game as quickly as possible.

After becoming the Hero of Hyrule, Link is sent off by Zelda to study to be a proper Elf. On the way, he gets shipwrecked on a mysterious island taken over by evil, which he then tries to free to make his way back home.

In this movie Chef Stef takes a unique route through the game exploiting many glitches to completely skip parts of the game that you are normally required to play. If you like Zelda, and you like glitches, this is the movie to watch.

We also have a movie of the Game Boy version (no DX), which skips a lot more of the game.

In this movie, the author utilizes a warping glitch, along with through-the-wall glitches, to send Link directly to the final boss (after stealing powerful weapons from the shop, of course). The game, normally hours long, is beaten in a mere five minutes.

Although the game looks straightforward, it requires a lot of precision and a bit of luck manipulation to play it this well.

This game is one of the first to have an overhead map and combine RPG-like elements with platform levels.

A quick run-through of the first Kirby game ever released, which predates Kirby's ability to absorb enemy powers.

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

This is a 32 second improvement over the previous movie by Spezzafer.

Last Action Hero is a platform game based on the film of the same name. Action hero Jack Slater must make his way through each stage while collecting movie tickets and beating up any bad guys who stand in his way.

The game includes two driving stages in which tickets are found floating above the road and by ramming enemy cars. A speed booster can also be picked up to allow Jack to finish the stage faster.

In this run, TehBerral utilizes Jack's powerful roundhouse kick as well as some luck manipulation to beat the game in eleven and a half minutes.

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

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

We recommend reading the author’s comments of this movie ― there is a lot of it.

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

This run doesn't really perform any mind boggling glitches like some other Mega Man runs on this site, but it still has the same classic action, and pulls off some very unlikely maneuvers that are enjoyable to watch.

Another installment of the Mega Man series. Unlike some of the other games in the Mega Man series, this one is quite solid and has no noteworthy glitches in it. Despite that though, many creative techniques were employed by Bag of Magic Food to beat each level as fast as possible. There is also many near misses of enemy fire in this game, making it very enjoyable to watch.

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

This run was done on the Japanese version, Rockman World 3 (ロックマンワールド3).

Pokémon: Blue Version is part of the first generation of games within its famous series, known for having a very large number of beneficial glitches. In fact, the game can be completed in less than one minute of in-game time using save data corruption (as evidenced in the run of the Yellow Version), but this run avoids such techniques in favor of activating an entirely different glitch.

This is an improvement of 9:00.78 over the previous run in this category, which used a similar glitch to the more heavily glitched categories. You might want to check out the run that avoids glitched warps for an example of quickly completing the game without corrupting the memory.

Rolan's Curse is like a simplified version of the NES Legend of Zelda with slower gameplay and more restricted game world, resulting in a primitive hack-and-slash experience. Nevertheless, there exists an interesting storyline: The kingdom of Rolan has been invaded by the forces of some evil being called Barius. However, in this movie, the final boss is never actually seen. Instead of meeting Barius face to face, the hero (who seems to have a face on the back of his head) defeats him by abusing a strange programming error.

Aside from Tetris, Super Mario Land is probably the most well-known cartridge for the original Gameboy.

The first Game Boy game TAS at this site, and a good choice too, because this is the most well-known Game Boy game.

And the movie is good too. Collision check errors are abused, and somehow some jumps are made longer than they should normally be.

This is the second and last true Mario game for the original Gameboy. It has unique power ups like carrots and bubbles and allows the player to go through each of the worlds in any order. It also features the first appearance of Wario, who would become a staple character for Nintendo.

This run is special, because it literally soils the game by causing a massive amount of total glitching, to skip almost the whole game, to destroy Wario's castle without even meeting him! And you thought Sonic was fast!

This is the second and last true Mario game for the Game Boy. It features unique power-ups like carrots and bubbles, and allows the player to go through each of the worlds in any order. It also meant the first appearance of Wario, who would become a staple character for Nintendo.

This run triggers the game ending by corrupting the memory and putting the "credits" value into the "next level" address.

This run improves the previous movie by 19.08 seconds, mostly by finishing the first level quicker by taking a shell and performing the pipe glitch death.

This run was made on the Japanese version because it allows for a trick to save time during boss fights. Much of the other time saved comes from careful lag management.

The Legend of Zelda - Link's Awakening is a classic Game Boy Zelda adventure. Link must travel across the dream world of Koholint Island, collecting the 8 Instruments to wake the Wind Fish and go home after a terrible shipwreck.

Swordless Link (the author), however, decided collecting instruments for a one-man band was a waste of time, so he skipped all of that and went straight to the Wind Fish (with a pesky boss battle in the middle).

The author improved the run by 11.22 seconds, which was mostly achieved by using a new route.

If you liked this, be sure to also check out the Game Boy Color version (DX), which completes all the dungeons.

The author improved the run by 0.16 seconds merely by delaying the third screen warp by one frame. Doing this causes the object on the screen to disappear, reducing the lag by 15 frames. After encountering 5 frames of seemingly unavoidable additional lag, the author produced a run with a net improvement of 10 frames. See the author's notes for more details.

Trip World (1992) is an aptly named game developed by Sunsoft, a video game company you might know by titles like Gimmick!, Ufouria and Journey to Silius.

It follows a rabbit-like creature called Yacopu on his quest to retrieve a flower and his kidnapped girlfriend so that peace will return to his world. Along the way he gains abilities including turning into a ball and a big, scary godzilla-like rabbit.

Originally meant as a sequel to the Super Mario Land games, Wario Land eventually proved popular enough in its own right to launch its own series.

Wario, having been kicked out of Mario's castle in his first appearance, decides, in his eternal greed, to search for a statue stolen by the nefarious Captain Syrup and the Black Sugar Gang. Along the way this would normally involve the occasional side quest for hidden treasures and collecting as many coins as he can possibly amass.

Here, however, Wario decides this isn't worth his time and proceeds as quickly as possible towards the final confrontation - going so far as to skip entire levels and otherwise make a mockery of the game engine.

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 50:45.48 with several new skips. We suggest reading the author's comments for more information.

A monumental effort of planning and execution, this run took 3 TASers 3 years to complete. There are many tricks and glitches used. The authors' comments contain a rundown of these, along with a chapter-by-chapter commentary.

Sega's Super Monkey Ball 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 forward or backward. There are 100 stages ranging in difficulty from easy to near impossible.

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 stages, breaking many of the heavily optimized console world record times.

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 39.05 seconds through further optimizations.

For more information about what's going on in this game, we recommend reading the author's comments at the submission page and the one of the previous publication.

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

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.

This is a 2.19 second improvement over the previous movie.

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.

Browny (the robot) is used in this video because of his Yo-Yo weapon, which has huge damage but short range. For example, the first boss is killed so quickly with it, that he never enters his second attack mode.

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 game also features some neat music.

I chose this game because it is known to be one of the worst Genesis games ever made, so I thought i'd give it a shot.
It's a quite short game, and this movie doesn't even visit 2 of the 4 rooms that you go to.

Based on the 1995 Disney Pixar movie of the same name, this game tells the story of a toy cowboy named 'Woody' and his jealousy over his owner's new toy, a 'Buzz Lightyear' figurine. Like its movie counterpart, this game features revolutionary graphics for its era and (for the most part) a unique musical score. The game also has a few different modes of play: most stages work like standard platformers, though there are racing stages and even a maze-exploration stage.

In this run, Mukki blazes through the game with impressive health management, occasionally dying to get more hit points when it saves time.

Ecco is a very original and hellishly hard game. You control Ecco the dolphin, navigating the waters, saving other trapped dolphins (which of course were left on their own here), finding key diamonds, 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 takes no damage, despite the fact that this was not intended to be possible.

The movie might look a little clumsy with the player hitting walls all the time, but there's no other way: Ecco has tremendous maximum speed, but no brakes whatsoever. The fastest way to slow down is simply running into something.

Gods is a game about someone who wants to become a god and gain immortality. This is a delicate and paradoxical issue, because temporal immortality can be bought at just about every shop in this game, but the hero still dies 9 (nine) times, which is two deaths less than in the old run.

Another fun aspect is bomb-jumping, which allows both higher jumps and traveling vertically through walls. Almost the whole 2nd half of the game is skipped with this trick!

This is the author's latest version, improved by over 4 minutes!

Gunstar Heroes (1993) is widely considered to be one of the best action games on the Sega Genesis — ironically, being commercially unsuccessful due to poor promotion. It features a variety of melee attacks, as well as 4 basic weapons which you can combine in pairs (making a total of 14 combinations) — all densely packed in a swift and explosion-heavy gameplay spanning over seven uniquely designed stages.

This single-player run by Jackic plays through Normal difficulty. Among other changes, in Normal difficulty, weapons do more damage, and the boss of the second stage has fewer forms. For a two-player run on Expert difficulty, see this movie.


A 220 MB MKV has been provided as an Archive.org download link. The size of this MKV is slightly larger than usual — this is due to an amount of colors and on-screen motion even the best codecs have problems coping with.

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.

In this run, Dimon12321 utilizes 007's varied moveset to run, jump, climb and swim through the levels speedily and beat the game in under 12 minutes.

Kid Chameleon is a platformer known to be hard. Dying is easy, as is getting lost in the multitude of teleporters and levels. Getting and keeping the correct helmet, as well as choosing a good path through the level system, can drastically cut down time. There are also a good number of tricks used to speed up this game, listed at Kid Chameleon.

There have been many attempts to TAS this game, but this is the first one to be published. We recommend reading the author's comments for this video.

This is a hacked version of Sonic the Hedgehog. The title character is replaced by his rival, Knuckles. The levels remain unchanged.

There is more than just an appearance change to this game. Knuckles' 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 a spindash and gliding can accomplish.

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


Note: An IPS patch for the hack can be downloaded here: http://tasvideos-moviefiles.googlecode.com/files/ips%2Bpatcher.zip . It must be patched to REV 00.

This is a strange platformer where the main character, Michael Jackson, has some obsession in doing weird movements and he dances occasionally together with the enemies before he beats them to oblivion.

This is an 3:47 improvement to the previous version.

Based on the comic strip Making It, Normy's Beach Babe-o-Rama was released in 1994 by Electronic Arts. The plot is that Normy's hanging out with some beach babes when suddenly an evil alien ship beams them aboard! Normy recieves a note that he's the only one that can save them and so he uses some magic suntan lotion to travel through time to rescue them.

NitroGenesis abuses Normy's dash to make quick work of the game's six levels, with the occasional glitch thrown in for good measure.

Like its predecessor, Phantasy Star II is a party-based Japanese RPG with randomly appearing enemies and turn-based combat. Eight characters can join the quest and can be swapped in and out at will to participate in a combat party of four. Characters can dual-wield and equip a wide variety of weapons, including firearms. Various techniques which require "TP" (technique points, equivalent to magic points in comparable games) are learned by different characters at specific levels. Unlike the first game, Phantasy Star II utilizes the same top-down view for both navigation and dungeon exploration; the now-2D dungeons are notable for their complexity.

This run by AmaizumiUni ignores the vast majority of the game by using a glitch that allows a party member's experience points to be used as plot items.

In this final instalment of the famous Phantasy Star saga, our 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. Such a quest would normally take at least ten hours, but with copious amounts of luck manipulation, it can be reduced to just over an hour and a half.

This video performs some truly ridiculous button-mashing combos, which the designers most likely didn't intend.

Selected quotes from the author:

  • Doesn't take all powerups because they make you knock down enemies. It's desired that they stand up as much as possible.
  • Manages to get one of the chainmen to kill the other one, so there is less bonus afterwards (faster).

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.

The author of this TAS chose to get maximum height bonuses instead of using the end pole for a small, boring speed boost.

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

This game has a lot of bosses, to say the least. Because the author speeds through levels so quickly, it is possible that the amount of time fighting bosses may actually be greater than the amount of time completing the level in order to reach them.

Sonic & Knuckles is the fourth game in the Sonic series. It retains the same basic features as in the previous Sonic games (speed, rings for protection, Special Stages with Chaos Emeralds) as well as the three different shield types introduced in Sonic 3 (Fire, Water and Electric). Players can select either of the two title characters for play - either Sonic, or the all-new Knuckles the Echidna. Knuckles cannot jump as high as Sonic, but he can glide by holding the jump button while in the air. If you glide into a wall, Knuckles will also be able to climb it. He can also break through walls that Sonic can't. With these abilities, Knuckles can access different areas from Sonic, making for each level an entirely new experience.

Ultra fast bouncing around. Completed without collecting any emeralds, with Sonic alone. The use of Sonic's different shields makes for some very interesting acrobatics.

Sonic's gone to plaid in the latest TAS by marzojr. It starts from a savestate to take advantage of Hyper Sonic from the beginning of the game. (For more details, see the note below and the run's comments.)

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.

To download a savestate for this movie, use this link for Gens version 11a or this link for Gens version 11b.


Note: There is an experimental hi-def encode of this run available (1920x1344):

http://www.archive.org/download/GenesisSonic3KnucklesnewgameIn3116.15ByMarzojr/knsonic3-tas-newgameplus-marzojr_1344.mkv

It was encoded using HQ3x followed by HQ2x on every frame of the video, but it requires a very fast computer to play at full speed.

Dr. Robotnik is at it again, and this time he has set up a Pinball Defense System inside of 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.

The author has improved this run by nearly 2 minutes over his previous. Improvements come from new shortcuts & glitches discovered by the author & Flip. For instance, Flip demonstrated in this submission how to skip collecting emeralds in the first stage.

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 authors from achieving crazy velocities even with such a significant limitation. In this run, the game is completed without collecting any emeralds.

This is the sixth run of this game, improving on the previous effort by 47.29 seconds with the use of new zips and improved precision.

Every second encode link leads to a camhacked version. But don't expect the videos where Sonic is visible offscreen to make more sense than the original ones!
