Coca Cola Kid is a platformer starring Coca Cola's Japanese mascot of the 90s. On his way through the levels, the kid can make use of a skateboard, but has to continue by foot if knocked off. Enemies can be defeated by kicks and flying kicks. Unsurprisingly, energy is restored by collecting cans of a certain soft drink. Its gameplay bears a very strong resemblance to Sonic the Hedgehog, which is no coincidence, since it's built off of the Sonic the Hedgehog engine and was made by Sega.

Samsara, ars4326 and dekutony rush to the end in good old Sonic-- ahem, Coca Cola Kid fashion in 8 minutes and 26.47 seconds.

- Takes damage to save time

- Genre: Platform
Ninja Gaiden for Game Gear is quite unlike the NES version or even its cousin on the Master System. It has a similar (but simpler) feel as the Master System version, but has the wall climbing element of the NES game. But like the others, it has ninjas. And ninjas are cool.

The key to a TAS of this game is special weapon maintenance. Bosses receive double the damage when hit with special weapons, so managing the weapons used and conserving force are critical to optimizing this game.

This movie improves the previous run by 16.39 seconds.

Sonic Blast, known as G Sonic (Gソニック) in Japan, is a platforming game for the Sega Game Gear released in November 1996. A similarly titled game, Sonic 3D Blast, was released in the same month for Sega's Genesis and Saturn consoles, though the games had different gameplay, plot, and a separate development team, as this game was developed by Aspect, whereas Sonic 3D Blast was a joint venture between Traveller's Tales and Sonic Team.

Challenger completes the game in record time.

- Genre: Platform
The Sonic games for the Sega Master System and the Game Gear are much less well known than their Genesis/Mega Drive counterparts and have a reputation for being quite challenging, especially in handheld form. You'd never know this from the speed Sonic blazes through the game here.

Unlike later 8-bit Sonic games, there are significant differences in levels between the SMS version and the Game Gear version; here the latter is used primarily for faster boss fights.

This run improves the predecessor movie by 2.29 real-time seconds, and by 1:22.29 minutes of total in-level time. What makes the real-time difference so small is the larger time bonuses. To compensate for that, the author has made an encode that cuts out the bonus screen and the level title cards.

If you like this run, also check out the run for SMS Sonic 2.

- Heavy glitch abuse
- Genre: Platform
This is the most famous game in the Alex Kidd series, due in no small part to frequently being bundled with the Master System (and being built in to some versions of the console).

In this game, Alex Kidd discovers he is the prince of Radaxian, and his father, the king, has been kidnapped, allowing the tyrant Janken to claim power. The game details Alex's efforts to dethrone Janken (surprisingly, his father is not tracked down until a later game in the series).

Few other games allow mini-bosses to be defeated by playing rock-paper-scissors. In fact, the name "Janken" is a reference to rock-paper-scissors.

This is an improvement of 2:41.47 over the previous run due to the use of new glitches, and other optimizations.

This is the final game of the Alex Kidd series, once Sega's flagship series. As the title suggests, this is a bit of a departure from the other games in the series and borrows concepts heavily from the Shinobi games.

Here, Alex Kidd's girlfriend has been kidnapped and he needs to go rescue her. In addition to his bizarre ability to use poles and ropes to turn into a fireball, he also apparently has the ability to use ladders to warp through solid walls.

The8bitbeast improves the previous run by 47 seconds, thanks to better optimisation and the addition of a major new trick which allows zipping across screens with the tornado powerup.

Batman Returns is a platforming game based on the movie of the same name. Normally, Batman must move through five stages on his way to defeat the Penguin. These include the streets and rooftops of Gotham City, Max Shreck's department store, the sewers, and the Penguin's lair.

Mamuuuut, however, uses a glitch which allows him to skip directly to the final portion of the last stage from the first stage. Therefore, he completes it in less than two minutes. For more details, read the author's comments.

Sega's 8-bit systems received a unique adaptation of Disney's 1992 animated film Aladdin.

Like other versions, it is a side-scrolling action game. The player controls Aladdin, making his way through a variety of locations, including the streets of Agrabah, the Cave of Wonders, the Sultan's palace and more. Gameplay takes several different forms: some levels are chases, where Aladdin runs automatically, but must be made to jump over chasms or rolling rocks and barrels, evade falling objects and avoid getting caught by a guard. Other levels are platforming affairs: Aladdin must run, jump and climb, find keys or switches to open doors while searching for the exit. Rocks can be collected and be thrown to dispatch enemies or hit buttons otherwise out of reach. Finally, there are also several magic carpet rides in the game, in which the level scrolls automatically and the player must make sure to avoid any obstacles in the way.

- Genre: Shooter
In Fantasy Zone II: The Tears of Opa-Opa, the goal is to knock out all the stationary enemies and open the red warp to fight each level's boss.

Unlike other Fantasy Zone games, the stages are separated into a few submaps connected with blue warps. Because the stages are nonlinear, backtracking is unavoidable and the player must find the shortest path through them.

This run by Odongdong uses increasingly powerful upgrades and a well-planned route to beat the game in under 6 minutes.

Impossible Mission was released in 1984 for the Commodore 64 and later ported to a various array of systems, including the Sega Master System in 1988. In the game, the player is a secret agent on a quest to stop the evil Professor Elvin Atombender - but first they must find 36 puzzle pieces and combine them to unlock the control room where the Professor is hiding. Many gameplay elements are randomized, such as puzzle piece location, building layout, and robot movement, in an effort to make each playthrough unique.

In this run, the authors front-flip through obstacles and manipulate the game's randomization in order to reach the Professor in less than 8 minutes.

Early in Japan's edo era, circa 1630, peace had continued in the western province of Ohkami until the feudal lord passed away. Gyokuro, an evil emperor, gained power and his oppressive rule caused great hardship to the people, and the princess who opposed him was confined to a dungeon somewhere in the Ohkami castle. Gyokuro has the Ohkami ninja under control at his command.

Eleven years have gone by since Tom-Tom rescued his girlfriend Tanya from the clutches of the evil King. Word of Tom-Tom's dangerous adventure soon spread throughout Wonder Land. The people were very proud of Tom-Tom and gave him the highest honor of all — the legendary name of Wonder Boy. With the evil King defeated, Wonder Land returned to its peaceful state, and for over a decade, the kingdom was a paradise, and everything and everyone lived happily together.

Eventually, the peace was broken when a ferocious fire-breathing dragon appeared out of nowhere and took over Wonder Land with an army of evil, monsterous henchmen, throwing Wonder Land immediately into utter chaos. The defenseless people were quickly taken over and the tranquil and serene kingdom was transformed into a land of demons and devils. Wonder Land was now a Monster Land. Tom-Tom, Wonder Land's last hope, is now summoned to set out on a journey, destroy this dragon, and restore peace once again.

In this movie, Challenger improved upon the previous publication by 1:46.23 minutes, thanks to new tricks, better luck manipulation, and better optimization.

Ys: The Vanished Omens is the first in a long series of role-playing games. Young swordsman Adol Christin has arrived in the town of Minea, only to find that a great evil is sweeping the land. He must seek out the six books of Ys and use the knowledge they contain to defeat the evil forces.

But after our hero visits a nearby shop, the shopkeeper decides he likes him and gives him his personal copies of all the books of Ys to complete his quest.

In this run, JohnUK89 improves upon the previous run by 21 frames by walking further down the screen, which makes going into the menu unnecessary.
