- Uses a suboptimal character

- Genre: Action
- Genre: Platform
After having been resurrected by dark priest Shaft, Dracula set out to destroy Richter Belmont's home village and kidnap some of the important characters for him to rescue. One of them is Maria Renard, a 12-year-old vampire huntress who is used as the player character in the second half of the movie after getting freed by Richter.

Despite her prepubescent age, Maria is faster and stronger than Richter, and one can only guess how she managed to fall a victim to kidnappers in the first place. Unfortunately, all of her speed advantages become nullified by a lengthy cutscene following her release, making this TAS slightly longer than the Richter mode.

This is a 2.5 second improvement to the previous movie.

- Genre: Action
- Genre: Platform
Castlevania: Rondo of Blood (1993) is an important milestone in the Castlevania series and a predecessor to the even more successful Symphony of the Night. This game was ported two years later to the SNES as Dracula X.

In this installment of a popular TV show, a miserable little pile of secrets known as Richter Belmont is once again called to have it at a savior mankind needs so ill. Armed with his trusty key and a question mark nicknamed 'Vampire Killer', he makes sure no candleholder remains standing in Dracula's castle. Eager to just get it over with, he plows through without as much as a slightest regard to his purple-haired girlfriend and some other people still imprisoned there. It seems what little time one has to spare in a TAS is best spent moonwalking and yelling at the screen, anyway.

A slower version of this run taking only the regular stages is available. Due to this movie being faster, that submission was cancelled, yet there are arguably more entertaining moments in the cancelled submission (the author recommends stage 4 in particular).

Contrary to the other Rondo of Blood TASes on the site, this one not only goes through the hurdles of saving three useless villagers from their prisons (with some of said prisons even resembling their regular habitats), but also plays through all the picturesque levels just to prove that Maria isn't really a suboptimal character. No videogame character fighting dark priests by stoning them to death with small white birds should ever be called suboptimal.

If you want to see a shorter run through the game, we suggest watching these: Richter any% in 23:18, Maria any% in 24:22.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Shooter
Final Zone II is a top down shooter in which you control various soldiers throughout the game. The objective of the game is to fight an enemy army led by "ZOD", who is a mass murderer and killed some of your commando friends. There are several manga-style cutscenes in the game, all of which have been really cheesily dubbed to English. The game also features the "best" song to ever feature in a video game, that is, Momoco's theme (which you'll hear in Round 4).

Mothrayas defeats Ruman in record time.

If you want to see the game being riffed along with all the cutscenes, we recommend watching the videos by retsupurae:

- Genre: Action
- Genre: Platform
Prince of Persia is a 2D platformer that is commonly regarded as a progenitor of the cinematic platform genre. Rather than following the more common jump-and-run mechanics, it focuses on careful advancement through fairly complex levels, emphasizing the protagonist's vulnerability and survival aspect. Rotoscoping technique is used to give more realism to the animation of the characters' movements.

This run by Challenger, done on the TurboGrafx CD port of the game, defeats Jaffar in record time, by setting the speed to the fastest one available.

Bloody Wolf is an Arcade port of a Heavy Barrel-esque game. The goal is to rescue the president, and then rescue the man who rescued the president, due to insufficient leg room in the rescue helicopter.

In this run, the author bunny hops through the game, throws grenades at everything, and dies for no apparent reason.

Award - PCE TAS of 2010
Bonk, a young caveman with a big noggin, intended to become the TurboGrafx-16's flagship character, starred in three games, Bonk's Adventure, Bonk's Revenge, and Bonk III.

Since the system was generally considered a commercial failure, the first two games were ported to other systems like the Nintendo Entertainment System and the Game Boy, and two original games in the series were even made on the Super Nintendo.

In his debut, Bonk's Adventure, you play as him on his quest to rescue Princess Za, a small pink and cute little reptile, from the evil King Drool, a huge and ugly tyronnosaurus.

Jerfo completes this quest in only 24 minutes, by making Bonk fly over most stages while he spins himself in the air, bouncing himself on enemies. Make sure you're ready to hear that spinning sound over and over again!

Bonk's Revenge is the second game in a popular PCE/Turbographx 16 platforming series. Thankfully despite the console's unpopularity some of the games in the series were ported elsewhere. Bonk is a caveman with a giant noggin he willingly uses as a weapon against his enemies. He can also break the laws of physics by using his enormous head as leverage to glide in midair.

This run by FuzZerd features all the trappings of a prehistoric blockbuster adventure, including fire breathing, jungle platforming, raging on huge dinosaurs before they know what hit them, and raw meat.

In Dragon Egg!, the heroine carries around a portable dragon which, after many power-ups, becomes a lot less portable to the point where the heroine is portable instead.

This is the author's second publication of Dragon Egg!, this time using the new BizHawk emulator.

Most of the 24.61 second improvement comes through a new trick that allows the heroine to simply fly through the auto-scroller level, ignoring the slow paced log.

Award - Exotic platforms TAS of 2016
Gomola Speed is an action/puzzle PC Engine game, released in 1990 in Japan by UPL. Its gameplay is described as a cross of Snake, Flicky, Qix, and Gauntlet - you control a cyber-worm's head, have to collect segments to increase your worm's length, use it to encircle spheres of "food", and then reach the exit while dodging enemies along the way. This is done over the course of 25 Acts which throw several kinds of enemies, mazes, keys, power-ups, and bosses into the mix.

Mothrayas completes the 25 Acts in record time. Please read the author's comments for more details.

Splatterhouse is the first game in the series, but only the second game to appear on a home console (after Splatterhouse: Wanpaku Graffiti on the Famicom), which was later continued on the Sega Genesis.

Rick and his girlfriend Jennifer enter West Mansion (known as Splatterhouse) to study Dr. West's parapsychology teachings for a school project. After a flash of lightning and a scream, Jennifer is gone, and Rick is left wearing the Terror Mask, which gives the wearer great strength.

Samsara slides for the most part through the demonic enemy forces in 12 minutes and 15.72 seconds.


NOTE: The downloadable encodes feature two video streams. The first (default) stream shows the Japanese version, whereas the second one shows the American version, which had all religious references removed and the colour of the mask changed to red (and its form changed).

Likewise, there are two YouTube streams available: The first stream features the Japanese version, while the second one features the American version.

The title of the series upon which this game is based, and therefore the game itself, has been rendered a variety of different ways in English; this is perhaps indicative of just how bizarre an experience playing this game is.

This is an improvement of 50.17 seconds over the previous movie, thanks to better optimisation and better strategies on the bosses. Please read the authors' comments for more details.

This game was released for the SuperGrafx, a slight modification of the TurboGrafx-16/PC Engine meant to enhance the graphical capabilities of the console.

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.
