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.

- 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.

- 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.

Wendy Witchcart is an old human witch who rides around in a specialized rail cart on an island that she claims as her own, and is the main villain who turns the islanders into crystals. Miles "Tails" Prower, better known as Sonic the Hedgehog's sidekick, is afraid of seeing a world filled with the witch's rails and decides to stop her on his own.

While Sonic collects rings to protect himself, Tails carries a special ring that he can throw like a boomerang or grab things with. Since collected crystals cost time on the score tally screen, the author simply ignores them all.

Sega Galaga is the only port of the classic arcade game that has a different name. It is effectively a completely different game than the arcade version. While the basic concept is the same, this version has simplified sound and rules, no challenge modes and all of the waves are identical, although the enemy movement increases and decreases in cycles reaching the fastest speed at level 35.

This run by dwangoAC beats the example high score in the fastest time possible.

Rumor says that the legendary Black Onyx, an artifact that grants eternal youth and happiness to those who can find it, lies within the Black Tower near the town of Utsuro. You assemble a party of brave adventurers and venture into the tower, defeating monsters on your way to the great treasure. ruadath gets to the treasure in just 41 seconds, moving through the rooms with godlike speed.

The Black Onyx is one of the first traditional role-playing games made by a Japanese company. It is similar in gameplay to early Wizardry and Ultima games with killing monsters and exploring dungeons, with dark, realistic visuals. The player creates a party (up to five members) and explores a maze-like 3D dungeon, fighting random enemies on the way. The heroes also meet adventurers who can be convinced to join the party. The combat engine is turn-based.

- 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.

Based on the characters of the popular French Asterix comic series, this platform game released in 1991 has you follow the two indomitable Gauls Asterix and Obelix as they travel to Rome to confront Julius Caesar.

In each level the player must find the key and make their way to the exit, while avoiding dumb looking legionnaires and making use of potions with various fantastical effects. An interesting feature of this game is that the player can choose between the two heroes for each level, and their different control styles mean that most levels can be completed in a variety of different ways.

With strategic character selection, clever use of shortcuts, and carefully-timed potion use, Johnnypoiro sails through each of the 21 levels, all while minimizing the score to shorten the points tally scene at the end of the game.

Long ago, in the distant land of Moralos, in a time when vast jungles still covered the Earth, an evil presence emerged from his tomb beneath the ground. His name was Gilbas, and he was about to destroy the inhabitants of the land. Aganan, a great warrior, was summoned to save the troubled land and put an end to Gilbas by sealing him in the tome from where he came.

Unfortunately, Gilbas was successfully resurrected and another warrior, Danan, was called. His quest is to locate the three sacred objects that Aganan used to defeat Gilbas: "The Orb of Light", "The Amulet of Light", and "The Knife of Light".

This run by Aqfaq uses careful experience point management and precise boss fights to save time and beat the game in under seven and a half minutes.

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.

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.

Hokuto no Ken is one of many video games based on the long-running manga Fist of the North Star (北斗の拳, Hokuto no Ken). This game follows Kenshiro across a world devastated by nuclear war as he journeys to rescue his girl, Julia, from his rival, Shin. To beat Shin's seemingly unstoppable army, Kenshiro uses the secret fighting technique Hokuto Shin Ken to twist his opponents' muscles until they literally explode.

RobynS improves the previous run by 5.93 seconds, thanks to better optimisation.

Kenseiden follows the story of Hayato, a samurai looking to retrieve five ability-granting scrolls and kill some evil warlocks. This involves battling through sixteen levels, including four rounds of impossibly difficult "training".

It's a prime infuriating example of fake difficulty, as Hayato moves incredibly slowly and there are generally an impossibly large number of enemies on the screen at any given time (especially bad in the training stages, where one hit sends you back to the beginning).

This version of the run collects all the scrolls and bonus upgrades (as opposed to the any%), and does so 14.46 seconds faster than previously due to some new tricks and route changes. It also visits one extra stage than in the previous run, so as to visit all of the game's stages (even if this extra stage has no bonuses or scrolls).

Kenseiden follows the story of Hayato, a samurai looking to retrieve five ability-granting scrolls and kill some evil warlocks. Normally, this involves battling through sixteen levels, the last several of which are very difficult without the abilities gained from the scrolls.

This run forgoes all but two of the scrolls and heads directly for the final round, as opposed to the 100% run which finishes all of the stages and collects all the scrolls.

This is an improvement of 1:35.46 over the previous any% run due to route changes and the use of some new glitches.

King's Quest is a popular adventure franchise for the PC by Sierra that focuses on exploration and puzzle solving. This movie features one of the few console ports of any Sierra adventure game. Notably, it features improved graphics and sound as compared to the original, which is usually not the case for these ports.

Usually this game would take many hours of wandering, collecting objects and solving problems. The author however is able to focus on key events and manages to beat the game in less time than Super Mario Bros...

This new movie is about a full minute faster due to newly found exploits.

If you enjoy this movie, you may want to take a look at this movie of King's Quest V for the NES by the same author. It is unfortunately much longer and has poor graphics compared to the original, but is impressive nonetheless for people who have played it before.

Montezuma's Revenge was one of the first platform games, combining treasure hunting, multiple rooms and puzzle solving. The player controls Panama Joe as he explores labyrinthine 16th century Aztec temples filled with enemies, obstacles, traps and dangers. Panama Joe can jump and climb ladders, but doesn't have much to offer in terms of combat, making it imperative for him to steer clear of enemies.

This run by Calfd skips most of each temple by abusing a bug that lets Panama Joe climb through the air. Calfd plays until the eleventh stage, after which there is no new content.

One peaceful day in Algol, the benevolent King Lassic decides to convert to a new religion. Unfortunately, this new faith turns him into a cruel dictator who silences all who go against him. When Alis' brother tries to rebel, he is killed by Lassic's robot-cops. After seeing this, Alis sets out to stop him, not only to get revenge, but also to liberate the people from the King's oppressive rule.

Monsters have blown up and escaped from a top secret Psychic Research facility and stolen one of the lovely lab assistants as well. Dr. Knavik gives Lucia his precious ESP Booster to save her twin sister Cecile.

By collecting various items on her travels, the ESP Booster grants Lucia various powers (kind of like Mega Man...) to destroy her enemies and also navigate quickly through levels. This is exacerbated for the author by poor hit detection and finicky input control. Input is only allowed one time every four frames. Nevertheless the end result is a fast paced and varied movie.

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. Utilizing various ninjitsu techniques, in addition to the one that transforms them into a wolf, they protect him from the people who are his enemies.

You play Kazamuru, a great warrior who challenges the clan to a fight in order to rescue the princess. However, he can't rescue the princess unless he finds the five scrolls in the thirteen areas of Ohkami. On his quest, he must defeat various ninjas such as Kuno-ichi and Ninniku, as well as fire-blowing ninjas, slashing ninjas, and footloose ninjas. You'll explore grassy fields, shrines, river banks, towns, and the castle itself. Some of the steps have varied gameplay. For example, you must avoid boulders in Step 2, must use logs in order to cross a river in Step 5, avoid being trampled on by horses in Step 7, and scale a cliff in Step 9.

A short game based more on the classic cartoon shorts than the 1992 movie.

True to the original series, the focus of this game is on catching Jerry in each level as Tom. While you can catch him at the end of the level after solving a puzzle, the challenge lies in trying to catch him before the level ends.

With careful movement and damage abuse, The8bitbeast catches the little mouse for good (or does he?) in just over 2 minutes.

Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap is a 1989 platform game by Sega and Westone. This game is a direct sequel to Wonder Boy in Monster Land and starts in the final lair of the previous game. According to Wikipedia, it is widely considered to be one of the best games produced for the Sega Master System.

The8bitbeast shaves off over ten and a half minutes over the previous run by grinding enough Charm Stones to open the Charm Stone door that brings you straight to the final boss.

- Genre: Platform
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.

Zillion is a video game companion for the anime of the same name. It features a freely explorable world in the vein of the Metroid games. JJ, the main character from the anime, must infiltrate the base of the evil Noza (misspelled as Norsa in-game) Empire and find five floppy disks in order to input the self-destruct sequence into the main computer and destroy the base.

In this run, Caitsith2 manipulates enemies to fire earlier and the four-digit codes to only contain numbers above 4. He also rescues both of his captured friends in order to achieve 100% completion.

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.
