If Sonic the Hedgehog had a love affair with a golf ball, then the result would be Action Pachio. Giant evil robots have kidnapped Pachio's family and friends and now he must roll and jump his way through six different worlds in the solar system to save them all and defeat the ne'er-do-wells.

This is an improvement of 24.22 seconds over the previous movie, thanks to better overall optimisation.

ActRaiser (1990) is a critically acclaimed SNES game which combines two major gameplay phases: a god simulator and an action platformer. You play the role of God "the Master", who awakens from his slumber only to find that the human civilization is completely wrecked, and hordes of demons are roaming free. The Master has two roles: to open new locations for humans to inhabit, and to deal with the catastrophes happening there, which usually have something to do with grotesque monsters, as represented in side-scrolling action stages, and to help develop the civilization anew by controlling it during the overhead phases through a bow-wielding cupid who also repels mischievous demons, as presented in the form of an overhead simulation.

This is an improvement of 14:11.48 over the original run of this game from 2004.


Commentary from the authors is available as subtitles in the MKV and YouTube video, or through this script if watching in the emulator.

You play the role of God "the Master", who awakens from his slumber only to find that the human civilization is completely wrecked, and hordes of demons are roaming free.

This run plays through the "Special Mode," which is a mode where the god simulators are removed and the levels become harder. The Japanese version is used for even higher difficulty.

If you enjoyed this movie, be sure to check out the run of the regular mode.

The oft-forgotten sequel to the more popular Actraiser, Actraiser 2 once again sees The Master do battle against Tanzra and his minions. The culmination is The Master ramming down Tanzra's front door with an entire palace to give him a beating during his ice cold bath.

Clocking in at little over a minute and a half faster than the previous TAS, this run features since-then known improvements, new strats figured out during the making of this TAS and optimization here and there.

HERE COMES YOGI!!!!!

Adventures of Yogi Bear is a multi-platform game released by Cybersoft on October 1, 1994, in North America and later in Japan and Europe. It is a platform game in which the player controls Yogi Bear and must progress through five levels representing Yogi's home, Jellystone Park. Jellystone Park must not be turned into a chemical dumping zone; only Yogi can prevent that from happening.

You must navigate through various climate zones (including tundra, swamps, and grasslands) in order to retrieve the picnic baskets. You can also ride on mine carts and participate in surfing while using a beaver for a makeshift surfboard.

The Animaniacs are a cartoon comedy trio, known for old school Warner Brothers style comedy mixed with some scathing political commentary.

This platformer of their namesake captures their personality well, with some comical and colorful animations. The author adds in his own techniques of walking on air and creating small scenes within the game while playing, especially during boss fights.

This game has a built in roulette, which is manipulated to always give the best result, especially invincibility when needed for tougher bosses.

Astérix & Obélix is a platform game where one player can choose to control either Astérix or Obélix or two players can play simultaneously. The mission of the two Gauls is to acquire artifacts from all across Europe.

The game, like the comics by René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo, is set in around 50 BC. It includes sports levels like a rugby match and the Olympic Games in Greece. Codes are used to save the player's progress.

Newcomer gordonX completes the game as both Astérix and Obélix in record time.

In this movie the toads seem to recall that they are Ninja Turtles rivals. Whenever they snatch a minute, they master their martial arts techniques, not caring that it's not ninjutsu and just straight brutality.

Bubsy is on a hunt to get back his yarn, which the Woolies stole.

Bubsy can run very fast, but unfortunately he almost never gets a chance to, because there are obstacles everywhere. Unlike most bobcats, Bubsy can die by touching anything remotely dangerous, like eggs or water. Also unlike regular bobcats, he can glide through the air, has a t-shirt with an exclamation mark, and a smile you'll just be dying to wipe off his face.

Castlevania: Dracula X (1995), released in Japan as Akumajō Dracula XX, is actually a toned-down remake of a PC Engine title known as Rondo of Blood (1993). It stars Richter Belmont, supposedly a son of Juste Belmont from Harmony of Dissonance, on a mission to save Annette (said to be his girlfriend) and Maria Renard (a young vampire huntress said to be his girlfriend's sister), along with a number of their fellow villagers, from imprisonment by Dracula (said to be the villain) and his minions.

Unfortunately, in this SNES port Richter isn't too much of a fast walker - unlike his father and the later Belmont clan descendants - so his fastest way of moving is constant backflipping (so don't be surprised by the author's choice of traveling method).

This movie is a 11.48 second improvement to the previous version by pirate_sephiroth.

Chrono Trigger is one of the most dearly loved games from the SNES library. In it, you play as Crono and set off on a journey through time to save the world from the villainous Lavos.

The game can be ripped apart in a matter of minutes through advanced save corruption techniques, but in this movie the author forgoes this exploit in order to play through more of the game, and does so in barely more than half the time of the last run in the same category. Don't expect this run-through to follow a coherent narrative any time soon, though — it still skips quite a lot of content.

From the opposite side of the usual formula of breaking a game to reach the credits as fast as possible, Saturn finishes Chrono Trigger in a single pass while trying to get as much done as possible without glitching the game out and spending too much time grinding. Consequently this video actually looks like an otherwise normal playthrough by an extremely skilled player.

This run aims for maximal completion within reasonable constraints that don't sacrifice entertainment too much. This includes:

  • All forms of Spekkio except the highest level (Pink Nu) are defeated
  • All Tabs (stat upgrade items) that do not respawn are collected
  • All characters' Techs are learned
  • All the sidequests mentioned by Gaspar are completed (to the point he no longer mentions them)
  • At least 1 of every equipable item is collected

It isn't technically possible to do everything possible in Chrono Trigger without New Game+ and resetting a few times, but this run aims to get most of it done.

Some very heavy experience grinding occurs between 2:16:45 and 2:26:18. Viewers may wish to skip through this segment of the video.

Clock Tower is a survival horror point-and-click game in which Jennifer Simpson attempts to uncover the secrets of the Barrows mansion where she and her fellow orphans have been trapped. Jennifer must avoid traps, monsters, and a scissor-wielding psychopath as she explores the strange mansion.

This movie takes advantage of several small tricks and glitches to achieve the best ending, Ending S, in under 12 minutes. Among them are an inventory glitch, which allows skipping through dialogue, and a select glitch, which allows Jennifer to run through the psychopath by clicking an object on the screen. Several new glitches this time around also contribute to a 33.10 second improvement over ruadath's previous run.

We also have a run that beats the game as fast as possible.

Congo's Caper is a platform game developed and published by Data East and is the sequel to Joe & Mac.

Congo and his girl Congette were two monkeys happily living in the jungle when a magic ruby fell out of the sky and turned both of them into half-humans. The ruby also set free a demon-kid who promptly kidnapped Congette. Now it's up to the newly evolved Congo to hurry through the jungle and rescue her.

The author, Dooty, utilized a number of tricks and glitches to accomplish this goal quickly. For more information, see the author's comments.

Trying to strike a compromise with peace activists, the guy who destroys the world bare-chested has been ordered to stop an alien invasion while taking as few lives as possible. As such, this run completes Contra III: The Alien Wars while only destroying enemies and obstacles if they prevent advancement. This requires much more careful dodging than the other run that avoids the warp glitch does.

Our hero takes the dodging one step further by adding the limitation that he cannot shoot enemy projectiles. However, frustrated by the lack of carnage and by the political pressure, our hero lets off steam sometimes by shooting the scenery and doing entertaining dances and poses.

This run improves the previous publication by 25.40 seconds.

One of the best (and best known) shooters of the 16-bit era, Contra III: The Alien Wars forgoes any semblance of plot devices in favor of good old fashioned shooting and platforming with some tough as nails bosses, especially in this, the hardest mode.

Apparently not happy with an already amazing movie, Cpadolf felt the need to go on yet another black op, optimizing his distortions of space and time on the way to a 173 frame improvement.

Demon's Crest is the third installment of the Gargoyle's Quest series. The player controls Firebrand, who is scouring the Demon Realm for elemental Crests, which preside over different elements (Fire, Earth, Air, Water, Time, and Heaven). When collected, these crests allow Firebrand to transform his shape at will and gain powerful new abilities and defenses.

Demon's Crest is notorious for some very difficult bosses. In this run, the author abuses boss weaknesses to the extreme by carefully switching Gargoyle forms as necessary. In addition, heavy luck manipulation was used during several encounters to make the otherwise troublesome boss fights look easier than a play through of Barney's Hide and Seek.

This is an improvement of 17.48 over Brookman's previous movie.

The SNES version of Aladdin (1993) follows the plot of this Disney movie much more closely than its Genesis counterpart.

Unlike in the other movie of this game, Jasmine wasn't happy with just being rescued by Aladdin; she made him spend a little time picking up some jewelry for her on the way. This movie aims to complete the game with all the red gems collected, which takes a little more time, but adds quite a bit to the entertainment value of the run. The core trick of this TAS is to abuse the parachute extensively to move faster than normal walking or jumping.

Goof Troop (1993) is a cheerful puzzle game based on Disney show of the same name. The gameplay is somewhat similar to NES Legend of Zelda with its maze-like map filled with one-screen rooms, except this time the emphasis on puzzles is stronger, and you can play in co-op.

In this movie the authors control two characters (Goofy and Max) simultaneously. This allows for a good deal of team work as one character can go get an item while the other heads for the exit. When there is no multi-tasking to do, the authors do a good job performing antics with one or both of the characters.

This is a nearly 4 minute improvement over Frenom's previous movie. Improvements come from new tricks, better teamwork, luck manipulation and optimized movements.

Like the other video game adaptations of the 1967 Disney animated film The Jungle Book, the SNES version is a side-scrolling platformer starring Mowgli, the young boy raised by wolves in the jungle. Running, jumping, climbing, and swinging on vines, he must make his way through 11 levels. These include the jungle by day and by night, a village high in the trees, a waterfall, ape King Louie's realm and the fire-charred wasteland.

In this improvement of 1 minute and 43 seconds, Newpants87 executed a warp in Stage 4, and other improvements have been done. Read the author's comments for more details.

This run of Donkey Kong Country aims for 101% completion.

The author of this run discovered several new time-saving techniques. Some of them are small enough to go unnoticed, and others are jawdroppingly huge. The total improvement over the previous run is a tremendous 6 minutes 6.93 seconds this time around.

The in-game time of this run is about 33 minutes 10 seconds. For a detailed analysis of new techniques as well as comments about individual levels, read the author's comments.

This is the any% TAS of Donkey Kong Country 2. It aims for overall fastest completion and doesn't give a flying banana about bonus rooms. Warp barrels are used whenever possible, meaning a large part of almost every stage in the first two worlds is skipped.

This is an improvement of 1:33.58 over the previous movie. As usual, longer loading times in a more accurate emulator take away some of the gross improvement time. If only comparing the length of the levels, the total improvement would be 1:39.21. See the author's notes for a more detailed breakdown.

Donkey and Diddy Kong appear to have been kidnapped, so now it's up to that daring damsel of adventure, Dixie Kong, to find the missing monkeys. But this is no solo expedition; her cousin, the titanic toddler Kiddy Kong, is here to help her kick some Kremlin butts.

This is the first entry of the 105% category of this game. By using a password to remove the 'DK' barrels, the game officially enters hard mode, and the maximum percent completion is obtained. For more Kong action, you can also view the pure speedrun that doesn't collect all items.

DoReMi Fantasy is ostensibly the Japan-only sequel to Milon's Secret Castle, though in practice it turns out to be a very different game, just a plain platformer with no big puzzle elements. Milon has set out to travel through seven different worlds to bring music back to the world (courtesy of his hometown's forest) and rescue his friend from the clutches of an evil wizard (who, conveniently, is also responsible for causing the music to disappear).

In Dragon's Lair, you take control of Dirk the Daring in his quest to save Princess Daphne from Singe the dragon. After the release of the 1983 arcade game of the same name, which played like an interactive movie, this game was released on many different platforms with radically different game play. We also have a run of the NES port here.

Dragon Ball Z: Super Saiya Densetsu (ドラゴンボールZ 超サイヤ伝説) is a role playing video game and the first Dragon Ball game for the Super Famicom. It was released only in Japan on January 25, 1992.

Super Saiya Densetsu is a remake combining two earlier Famicom games of the Gokuden series: Dragon Ball Z: Kyoushuu! Saiya Jin and Dragon Ball Z II: Gekishin Freeza!!, but without the movie characters and anime filler elements that were featured in them.

The game follows the rough outline of the Vegeta, Namek, and Frieza Sagas, with various add-ons and edits to make the story fit within the RPG guidelines, such as the inclusion of multi-colored Saibamen and re-colors of Frieza's henchmen and the Ginyu Force members as common enemies.

EarthBound is a great RPG, designed by Shigesato Itoi in 1994-1995, and is also known by the name Mother 2.

It is best described as "random", in a good way. The game has a great emphasis on a humor, and indeed many things in the game are almost caricatured, from subplots to characters. It also has a versatile soundtrack.

Although this being a speedrun (tool-assisted at that), most of the plot of the game is intact, making this movie very entertaining to watch even as a TAS.

In contrast to the in-bounds run of this game, this run skips most of the plot. There are several major collision detection bugs, including one showing that the Skip Sandwich is a fitting name for the item in ways the developers never intended. The author is able to move around the game's areas freely, completing the bare minimum number of tasks needed to keep the final battle from locking up.

This is an improvement over the previous submission by 13.28 seconds thanks to better optimizations.

Eek! The Cat is a game based on the old cartoon series of the same name. Your goal is to kick and shove an NPC to the exit of each level while avoiding enemies and obstacles, and all to the tune of some sweet music.

This game was originally planned to be released as Sleepwalker, this is why it's so dark (it happens at night) and has this specific gameplay of pushing the sleepwalking people to where they belong.

This is an improvement of 434 frames over the previous movie by WarHippy.

Kumbayah!

- Genre: Gameshow
Award - Funny TAS of 2009Award - Innovative TAS of 2009
Family Feud (1993) follows the premise of the American TV show of the same name. Two families are pitted against each other in a contest aimed at guessing the results of a public survey. In the first two rounds, the first family member to press a button and give a concise answer that happens to be on the survey earns points. After that, this family can continue guessing answers on the survey, with control switching to the other family on incorrect guesses. After two rounds, the family with fewer points is disqualified, and the last round allows two members of the remaining family to list several of the existing survey answers in a very short time period.

Heisanevilgenius's family, The As, ignores all that and goes with elaborate and utter nonsense instead… only to find the host accepting their answers as correct. The other family, The Halls, doesn't even get the chance to insert a word, proving the racial prejudice of the host. Watch the game and see for yourself.

If you liked how this movie abuses a text recognition system, also see the trouble that TAS tools bring to a drawing recognition system.

Note: Some answers contain coarse language.

Final Fantasy IV (renamed to Final Fantasy II in North-American publication) was a revolution to the RPG genre. It was the first to introduce the active battle system, among many other redeeming qualities.

This movie plays through the game in a mere 2 hours, 53 minutes and 14 seconds. It aims for real time, but has a secondary goal of lowest in-game time when that does not incur an expense in real time. The in-game completion time is 1:59:28.

The author also included many easter eggs, or surprise occurrences, throughout the movie. These have been detailed in the author's comments. We recommend reading the comments regarding this movie.

Note: This movie resets the game console a few times, first saving the game and then loading it, so to watch it on an emulator, you will need an emulator that supports recording the console resets.

This movie was made with the original English-language version. The downloadable encodes were encoded with the Action Replay code 0495DCFF, which keeps the music volume from decreasing while the game is paused. This greatly reduces the annoyance factor of constant pausing during battles, which is done to save time.

Final Fantasy IV, renamed to Final Fantasy II in North America, was a role-playing game that revolutionized the genre. It was the first Final Fantasy title to introduce the Active Time Battle system and one of the first RPGs to feature a complex, involving plot.

Watch as two Final Fantasy games, V and VI (VI is also III in North-American publication), are beaten with one controller's input. Since FFVI takes longer to beat than FFV, the FFV run also beats a few optional bosses which are not fought in the single-game run of FFV. The two games finish at the same time.

Since FFV is only available in Japanese, FFVI is also played with the Japanese version. The (J) version of FFVI also has an equipment glitch which is not present in the (U) version. Otherwise, this run of FFVI is quite similar to our single-game FFVI movie.

- Takes damage to save time

- Genre: RPG
Final Fantasy VI (renamed to Final Fantasy III in North-American publication) is arguably the most famous RPG on the SNES console.

This movie plays through the game in little over 4 hours by the means of advanced analysis of the game engine, and the abuse of certain game errors/features that give the ability to one-hit-knock-out even the strongest enemies ― most prominently (but not only) the Joker Doom lore from Setzer’s slot machine.

A glitch involving Relm’s sketch ability was not used in this run. That glitch cannot be performed on this version of the ROM. There is another run using this glitch on the 1.0 version of the ROM.

The boss battles, including the last boss, might be somewhat anticlimactic in this movie due to the unusual attack technique, but besides being a very nice timeattack/TAS record, the movie is a nice trip down the memory lane for those who have played this game, and a graphically and especially musically pleasing experience for even those who haven't. This movie was made with the English-language version.

We recommend reading the author’s comments regarding this movie.

Unlike the numbered titles in the series, which are isometric tactical RPGs, Gun Hazard is a side-scrolling shooter which takes place in a completely separate universe. The game was never given an offical English release, but there is a high quality fan translation made by Aeon Genesis.

Gekisou Sentai Car Ranger is a Power Rangers game released only in Japan. It uses the Sufami Turbo loader add-on for the SNES, making it even more obscure.

The game itself is rather short for a platformer. Only the yellow and red rangers are used due to their unique character advantages which allow them to complete the game faster than the other rangers. Unlike its predecessor, this run gets good ending by getting the minimum 250 parts necessary to form Racing Fusion RV Robo and defeat a transformed President Gynamo before he blows up the Earth. This results in the movie length being increased by 46.26 seconds. See the author's notes for more details.

As you might know, Konami realised they went a little overboard with the difficulty of the arcade version of Gradius III, so the SNES port got noticeably easier (and laggier). However, it still remains one of the hardest and most unforgiving shoot 'em ups released in its era.

This is Cpadolf's take at the shmupping carnage, resulting in a significant improvement in both speed and style over the previous movie by Krocketneo. In total, 2 minutes 53 seconds are saved thanks to lag reduction and faster boss fights. The author also kills a greater percentage of enemies (still not fully 100%, though — read the comments for more details).

The game is completed in Arcade mode (still a far cry from the actual arcade game), which is accessed by tapping A on the main menu screen. It is strongly recommended to read the congratulatory text appearing after the end credits. ;)

Hagane: The Final Conflict is a 1994 action-platform video game developed by CAProduction and published by Red Entertainment and Hudson for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. The player takes on the role of a ninja cyborg named Hagane on his path to take revenge on an opposing ninja faction. The game combines traditional Japanese ninja and samurai aesthetics with a futuristic setting. The player has a wide variety of weapons, moves, and attacks at their disposal to defeat enemies and progress through the game.

In this run, Sniq beats the previous movie from Tiger- and Heisanevilgenius by 57.02 seconds. Record time was achieved through better general optimization, new boss fighting techniques, and some minor tricks.

This sequel puts you back into the roles of the cavemen, Joe and Mac. This time, a caveman named Gork has stolen the crown belonging to the Chief of Kali Village, and it's up to you to retrieve it by using the 7 Rainbow Stones you will collect on your journey.

Along the way, you will fight dinosaurs, cavemen, and other prehistoric enemies as your travel through the jungle, or through the ice and snow, or even through a volcanic wasteland. Along the way, you can pick up upgrades for your club, or pick up projectiles from eating certain health-recovery items. In some levels, you'll ride in a stone cart, trying to hope over gaps and avoid enemies as you try to reach the end.

The sequel to the first Joe & Mac adds several new features to the predecessor's formula. You can now collect coins in the levels to purchase items from Tiki Village, such as meat to recover your health, or even remodel your hut back at your home village. The game also uses a password system to track your progress. The game also shifts to an overhead map so you can wander to whichever level you wish, and return to completed levels to earn more money or power-ups.

Judge Dredd is a platform action game based on the British comic book character of the same name and the 1995 movie that tarnished that name. The game was a multi system release so it fits the standard console jump/shoot/duck formula although it does add some unique twists such as wounding enemies so that they surrender and can be arrested.

The initial levels follow the plot of the movie with futuristic lawman Judge Dredd framed and sent to the Aspen penal colony from which he must escape and prove his innocence. Following the fight at the top of the Statue of Liberty that ended the film, the game continues on with levels and characters inspired by the comic book culminating with a battle against the Dark Judges on Deadworld.

In this run, Archanfel improves upon the previous publication by 3:36.60 minutes thanks to some new glitches and changes to the route.

Kaizo Mario (友人マリオ Yūjin Mario) is a Nicovideo phenomenon born from a person's desire to make his friend play his super-hard Mario hack and post the results on Nicovideo. By chance, this hack made its fame on Youtube when a team of Let's Play gamers obtained the hack and recorded a video of them playing it. The most well-known YouTube video in this series is the first part of ProtonJonSA's attempt of Special Stage 2 and his subsequent nervous breakdown.

Kaizo Mario World 3 (友人マリオ3 Yūjin Mario 3) is the third installment of the Kaizo Mario series. In addition to the video's popularity, the hack is well-done in comparison to the previous two.

Themes that are common to Kaizo hacks:

  • Extremely rigid windows of opportunity, with missed opportunities resulting in death.
  • Set-ups that demand the highest caliber of Super Mario World physics abuse.
  • Set-ups that require stunts that are tantamount to glitches.
  • Traps that cannot be foreseen without knowing that they exist, including but not limited to invisible blocks and being killed after apparently clearing a level.

In this run, ISM and Mister break the game completely with glitches, just as in the 96-exit TAS of Super Mario World. Said glitches involve making things appear out of nowhere, glitching through walls, and carrying Yoshi through to the next level, something not intended by the maker of this hack.

This is a game based on the completely "unique" concept of an evil boss trying to take over/destroy/do whatever with the world, and despite the Earth being filled with about 7 billion occupants, you are the only one who can stop it.

At first glance it may seem odd that, although the game is two player, only one player is used, and that's Player 2. Player 2 was chosen because her aerial attack gives an enormous speed boost. It is also one of the few attacks in video games that operates on frame precision, so smashing out a 30Hz rapid-fire on the controller will lay the beatdown pretty quickly.

That, combined with the fact that half the enemies in this game are of the standard "walk around and shoot" variety, allow the heroine to zip through the game with total reckless abandon. Few games allow a TASer to do that, so this is a rare opportunity indeed.

The game is eerily similar to Mega Man 7 and Mega Man X. It even has pick-throwing miners.

This is a 24 second improvement over the previous movie by the use of some new tricks. These are explained in the author's comments.

Important: This movie requires Snes9x 1.43 v15.3 or earlier. It desyncs on later versions.

Killer Instinct is a classic fighting game ported to the SNES from an arcade machine. It features an advanced combo system, rich pre-rendered graphics and nicely arranged music. However, the latter two were somewhat toned down in this version compared to the original.

In this movie, Spinal takes down his enemies by slicing them up, hitting them with their own abilities, and (gasp!) making them dance to music!

- Uses a game restart sequence
- Genre: Sport
Kirby is a spherical character, so naturally it makes sense that he should be whacked around like a golf ball. A ball that can absorb the powers of enemies and use them to his advantage, of course!

This run aims for best score, then fastest time. A lot of hole-in-ones are scored, even at great time expense.

Note that there is a second series of courses which are similar to the original set. These are played as well for sport, before attacking the final boss and winning.

This run is 1:52.25 minute faster than snc's previous TAS. There's no improvement in the number of hole-in-ones, but his secondary goal is done significantly faster!

Kirby's Dream Land 3 is the fifth platformer video game starring Kirby. Specifically, it is the third game under the Kirby's Dream Land name. Although the first two games were largely unrelated, Dream Land 3 features many returning characters from Dream Land 2. Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards was the sequel to this game.

After the events of Kirby's Dream Land 2, Kirby and Gooey are on a fishing trip, when all of a sudden, Dark Matter appears and shatters the planet's rings. He then proceeds to possess various Dream-Landers, including King Dedede. Kirby and Gooey team up with Rick, Coo, and Kine, as well as new characters Pitch, ChuChu, and Nago, in order to stop Dark Matter.

WaddleDX collects all the Heart Stars, fights the true final boss, and achieves the best ending in record time.


Note: There is also an alternate YouTube stream featuring Japanese commentary by the author.

- Genre: Racing
The objective of Lamborghini: American Challenge is to become the champion of illegal street racing. The player speeds through street traffic, while avoiding speed traps, and makes his way across the finish line first.

Instead, here laranja uses a glitch to gain thousands of dollars by losing a race. Then, he buys the best equipment, enabling him to drive very, very fast. Specifically, he is now able to complete the timed races that are required to beat the game. If you're looking for a run of a racing game that drives 310 MPH on icy roads, look no further—you have it right here!

In this version, the author makes an improvement of over 2 minutes by skipping more of the 2nd race.

Lemmings! This is a SNES translation of the well known and popular game.

This TAS, played by Lord Tom, completes the game on the Mayhem difficulty level. We recommend reading the author's level-by-level comments which explain some of the strategies used in the levels.

The category "takes damage to save time" was flagged because some of the lemmings were sacrificed for overall best completion time (in some levels, it is even necessary).

Lethal Weapon for the SNES is one of many licensed titles made by Ocean Software. It's a Shooter/Platformer that constantly tests the player's endurance with swarms of enemies and puzzles. For each mission you can choose the appropriate character. Walking around - jumping and swimming - kicking or shooting the opponents you have to stop the crimes in your beloved L.A.

This game may not be too speedy in real-time play, but Cooljay makes it look pretty fast and smooth, with the help of some nice glitches. The music and graphics are also rather enjoyable.

Abel's daughter has been kidnapped by his former friend, Bayer. Bayer has sold his soul to the devil, and sacrificed Abel's wife, in an attempt to resurrect the King of Demons. With no other choice, Abel vows to save his daughter, no matter what the cost - even if it is his own humanity...

Majyuuou is a side-scrolling platformer for the Super Nintendo, taking influences from Castlevania and Contra. You play as Abel, intent on rescuing his daughter from the depths of Hell. As you defeat certain bosses, they will drop large, color changing gems. Pick up the gem, and you'll transform into either a red Harpy, a blue Dragon, or a green Lizard, depending on what color it is when you pick it up. Each demon type has its own special attacks.

This run aims for the game's True Ending, which requires unlocking and using the Black form in Stage 6. To unlock the Black form, you need to use a unique form for every stage before Stage 6. Any combination of Red, Green and Blue will do, as long as you use all three of them.

Marvel Super Heroes: War of the Gems is a platform game featuring Spider-Man, Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, and Wolverine. In it, you must collect Infinity Gems (Also known as Soul Gems), which possess special powers, before they fall into the wrong hands. Luckily, you can equip the ones you have to help you find the ones you don't. This game should not be confused with an arcade fighting game with a similar name.

The player, Dooty, primarily uses Iron Man to boost through the game in less than 19 minutes. He does this with careful planning, clever boss strategies, and a whole lot of gems. Never once in this run does he take damage. For more information, please see the author's notes.

Maui Mallard in Cold Shadow (1996) was among the later games released on SNES, which had its positive impact on production values. As a result, the game sports remarkable design and animation quality.

In addition to that, it stars Donald Duck in the role of Maui Mallard, a detective with an alter ego of a blindfolded ninja called Cold Shadow, on the task of retrieving the lost Shabum Shabum idol on a remote tropical island. And no, the plot doesn't get more sensible from that point on.

The author, funnyhair, improves on the previous run by nearly two minutes by optimizing movement and boss fights, among other things. For more details, as always, please see the author's notes.

This time around, Dr. Wily has his own creation turned against him, allowing the player to use Mega Man or a bad guy!

However, in this run, the players only use Mega Man and collect each and every CD in the game, which shouldn't be possible using only one character. Then again, many things happen in this movie that weren't intended to be possible.

This run is a collaboration between sparky, the current author of the other branches for this game, parrot14green, the author of the previous "100 CDs" run, and woabcfl, the author of the Rockman no Constancy runs. It improves the previous movie by 1:40.96. You can read the authors' comments for more details.

Once again, it's up to Mega Man to destroy Dr. Wily's latest army of Robot Masters, only this time on the SNES. You would think poor old Wily would learn from his past six mistakes, however this isn't so. On the up-side, we get another superb TAS of this famous series.

This is an improvement of approximately 30 seconds of in-game time thanks to some new glitches, including using the Rush Coil to wall climb and abusing Noise Crush to instantly kill some bosses.

This version plays on the North American version of Mega Man 7 whereas the previous movie plays on the Japanese version. This change affects times outside of the player's control but which still get counted towards the movie's length, making this movie appear longer than the previous movie.

There is also a 100% TAS of this game.

Since moving to the SNES 16-bit land, Mega Man has taken the secret identity X, but everyone knows it's still him because he's the only blue robot who shoots three pellets at a time at other robots, steals their weapons, and zips through walls.

FractalFusion plays this game a bit differently than usual. He abuses a failed password in order to obtain all weapons before the intro stage; this also causes all 8 Mavericks to be flagged as beaten, so the run proceeds directly to the Sigma stages after the intro stage.

Because the failed password does not include X's armor upgrades and the Maverick stages are never entered, the dash boots (normally impossible to avoid) are never collected, meaning that Mega Man X spends the entire run walking through the stages; this provides more opportunities for entertainment than usual. For more information, read the author's comments.

Originally thought to be an April Fools joke, it turns out that Capcom really did hide a one-hit-kills weapon in Mega Man X. That platform in Armored Armadillo's stage always did seem a little strange. Unlike the later games, collecting the Hadoken is much more time consuming.

Hetfield managed to improve the previous run by 6.5 seconds, thanks to better lag reduction and overall better optimisation. Please read the author's comments for more details.

In the latest in silly ideas turned into inspirations for our ever-dedicated TASers, this movie takes one controller and wires it into three SNES emulators at once; the same input is used to play 3 games simultaneously with one controller. There are also animations constructed with spare controllers during this movie.

This movie beats the first three Mega Man X games with 100% completion each (an improvement on its predecessor, which beat only the first two games and without 100% completion).

If you like this movie, there are other movies that beat four games with one controller!

Note: There might be a visual anomaly during the battle with Serges in X 2. This is an emulator bug relating to the Cx4 chip used in the Mega Man X 2 cartridge.

Encoder's Note: There are multiple audio tracks included with the encode. Track 1 is the combined audio of all 3 games panned so that the left side is MMX1, center is MMX2, and right is MMX3. Track 2 contains MMX1's audio, track 3 contains MMX2's audio, and track 4 contains MMX3's audio.

Mega Man X2 makes a particularly interesting run as there are many weapons that can be used to increase mobility. These include a grappling hook, a fast mid-air dash, and a weapon that can transform enemies into platforms.

This TAS obsoletes the "low%, best ending" as well as the "all upgrades" runs, since it collects all the parts of both X and Zero. It became possible to separate the "full completion" branch from the "any%" one after it was found to be faster to forgo acquiring the Shoryuken in the latter.

Metal Warriors is a battlemech action game with platforming elements, similar to Cybernator in concept. The game's distinctive feature is the ability to pilot six different mechs, which vary considerably in gameplay style. Each of these mechs is equipped with its own melee weapons, firearms, and shields. The mechs also have different movement capabilities: for instance, one can roll as a ball, another can walk on walls and ceilings, and one is an agile flier.

In addition, the player can eject from their mech and fly using a jetpack. Although they are extremely vulnerable in this form, the player needs to be out of the mech to accomplish certain objectives, such as activating switches.

In this run, Dooty shoots, stomps, and crashes his way through the missions, using smooth tool-assisted movement and a few glitches to defeat the Dark Axis in under 15 minutes.

Mickey Mania: The Timeless Adventures of Mickey Mouse is a 1994 platformer video game developed by Traveller's Tales and published by Sony Imagesoft for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Sega Genesis, and Sega CD. In the game, the player controls Mickey Mouse, who must navigate through various side-scrolling levels, each designed and based from classical Mickey Mouse cartoons.

In this run, the authors abuse a glitch intended by the developers that allows you to bring up a “Level warp” from spawning too many sprites on the screen, beating the game in record time.

Power Rangers, an immensely popular set of TV series from the 90s, naturally spawned a massive number of tie-in products. Given the nature of the show, it should not be surprising that a good number of beat-'em-up games are counted amongst their number. There are a total of five levels and two follow-up robot fights in this game.

This run saves 1:21.08 over the previous publication by using new movement and attack strategies; details are available in the author's comments. Kimberly is, as always, the fastest ranger, and is used on every level.

Here on TASVideos we have a rich history of movies of the games in the Mortal Kombat series, demonstrating the unique combos and glitches possible in each version. This video of MK3 for the SNES is no exception, as the author Dark Noob swaps between all the different characters to show off the wide variety of techniques, secrets, and humorous bugs that are possible.

Though he is technically the villain, you have to admire Shao Kahn's dedication to keeping up with the action in his role as announcer as the fights get more and more bizarre. At times even he seems confused as to what is going on.

Like all of the Mortal Kombat games, MKII is about warriors fighting in a tournament for inspecific power and fame. Shang Tsung is chosen for his ability to transform into other characters.

This movie aims to demonstrate as many quirks and fatalities of the game as possible. Examples include two Shang Tsungs with a Raiden child, a headless Reptile eating Kitana's head and a bloody clone of Jax. The AI is also humiliated.

The author's comments page is a definitely recommended reading for this movie.

Oh, this game is great. I remember that at the beginning, the gun has exactly enough shots to make it past that first door. Shield, big blast, and kill the guards, then the gun runs out. Waste any, and you die. Classic.

In this strange game, you play a character named Plok who wants to get rid of all the fleas on his home island. Plok has the ability to shoot his arms and legs to harm enemies. To complete some stages, Plok has to kill all the fleas in the stage before the goal flag appears at the end of the stage.

Plok is in a hurry, so he looks for opportunities to travel faster. He finds slides lying around almost everywhere. He finds nice presents making him a lot faster. He finds tiny holes in the Flea Pit for big shortcuts. He finds helpful sawblades, nice guys pushing him into the right direction, and even a lovely fish which helps him climb a mountain. Even water helps him climb a mountain to discover one more slide. He also takes advantage of the fact that he can do bigger jumps without his legs.

Though the improvement over the previous movie seems to be only 2:15.16 minutes, it's actually almost 4 gameplay minutes, because the previous movie did not complete the credits.

Prehistorik Man is a caveman-themed platformer by French development studio Titus. It's colorful and enjoyable, and WarHippy gives you quite a tour of the game. Just make sure you don't start swinging a club at everything you see after watching it.

This run is 1 minute 24 seconds faster than the predecessor movie due to general optimizations.

The SNES port Prince of Persia 2 is generally regarded as a bad port of a very hard platforming puzzle game. The controls are clumsy, the puzzles are seemingly random, and the player dies very easily. The port also leaves out the last level. Fortunately there is a major bug in the game that allows large parts of it to be skipped.

In this run, Challenger beats the previous publication by 1:53.28 due to several improvements, such as new glitches and skips, as well as better optimization.

In Riddick Bowe Boxing, you can face off against a slew of imaginary fighters as well as Riddick Bowe himself. The game features both a career mode, where you rise through the ranks until you battle Bowe, and an exhibition mode where you can choose any two boxers to face off.

In this playaround, laranja chooses exhibition mode and picks the worst boxer to battle against Bowe. Normally, it would be nearly impossible for him to win. Using tool-assisted precision, not only does he beat Bowe, but he does it while landing every hit and taking no damage. In the process, he toys around with the champion until the match is over.

Shapeshifting dogs. Evil robots. Alchemy. Cheesy B movie references. These are all par for the course in Secret of Evermore, a very loose "sequel" to Secret of Mana. The story follows a boy that is thrust into a virtual world and finds himself with no immediate means to escape. As the boy travels, the geography changes to reflect certain eras of real-life history, adding a unique aspect to the game.

A Secret of Mana TAS has finally come to TASVideos!

Secret of Mana is a widely popular action RPG published by Square. It is internationally regarded as the first game of the Mana series, though the Japanese title is Seiken Densetsu 2, so it is the sequel of Final Fantasy Adventure. It utilizes real-time battles like many other action RPGs while including some unique features such as the Ring Command and multiplayer action.

Touch-me beats the game very quickly, using three players simultaneously and a whole host of glitches. For instance, many bosses can be hit for 999 instant damage using a charge counter glitch, and certain plot points are skipped. See the submission comments for more details.


The YouTube encode contains commentary from the author in the form of hard subtitles.

Seiken Densetsu 3 is a RPG about your typical ragtag group of young adventurers that totally lack any survival instinct; at least that'd explain why they never bother to get any protective gear. Our three chosen champions of goodness are tasked with rescuing the eight elemental spirits from the clutches of evil and using their power to save the world. Though it turns out that nobody is able to count as we find in fact nine spirits...

We recommend reading the author's notes; they contain a lot of very good information.

Skyblazer (1994) is a relatively obscure gem of a platformer released for the SNES, featuring quite decent music and visuals among other things.

Following the game's truly original plot, Sky, a cocky young hero, has to free a princess sorceress kidnapped by an evil deity Ashura. In order to do so, he must traverse a non-linear world, collecting various spells, abilities, and powerups along the way. Helping him is the eloquently named Old Man, who teaches young Sky to memorize patterns — just after delivering another insult.

This is 24.3 seconds faster than the previous run, which used a beta version of the game. The final version has longer loading times and more lag, but conversations can be finished more quickly, which accounts for most of the time saved. See the submission comments for details.

Soul Blazer is an RPG made by Enix considered to be somewhat related to its predecessor: ActRaiser. The main character is an angel sent to destroy invading monsters and release the captured souls of innocent people.

In this series, every action in monster lairs directly affects non-combat areas, and vice versa. That being said, much planning was needed for this run.

The ending is very long and requires user input, so the movie's length is about 13 minutes longer than what might be considered beating the game. Regardless, this run is an improvement of 17 minutes over the prior run thanks to new strategies and a swap to the Japanese version.

Spider-Man/X-Men: Arcade's Revenge is an action platformer starring the iconic Marvel characters Spider-Man, Wolverine, Cyclops, Storm, and Gambit. After the X-Men get kidnapped by Arcade, Spider-Man must deactivate bombs, infiltrate the abandoned building where they were taken, and confront Arcade. From there, Arcade puts each hero to the test as they navigate through his bizarre "Murderworld" until Spider-Man can finally confront the madman head-on.

This infamous game was made by LJN, and although it might be better than many others from that label, it still has serious gameplay flaws that make it frustrating, let alone incredibly difficult. However, it works great for a TAS. Using careful precision and many exploits, the team of jaysmad and Brandon make it through this "Juggernaut" in less than 24 minutes. Please see the authors' notes for a detailed breakdown of the levels, a couple of glitches that were unused in the run, and a video of a camera hack for the Black Queen fight that mostly happened off-screen.

Please also check out the run for Wolverine, which is a NES game, also made by LJN, where most of Wolverine's gameplay came from.

One of those hard-to-emulate games because of the hardware assistance provided on the actual cartridge, Star Fox is a well-known 3D shooter. Avoiding obstacles can be tricky on the digital directional pad, so some of the stunts seen are impressive to anyone who knows how hard this game can be.

Emulation of this game is not correct. Lag present on the SNES is not represented in this run. Expect the speed to be higher than actually seen on a real console. For this reason, the audio track lags severely behind the rest of the run. As a result, some of the bosses can be defeated before the boss music begins.

When played at full speed, Super Bomberman 2 is a straightforward action game, but if it's played in slow motion, it becomes an extremely tactical puzzle game.

These include setting up chain reactions and clearing up the end of the level before even reaching it. To get a better grasp of the techniques used, read the author's comments.

This is an improvement of exactly 2 minutes and 19 seconds over the predecessor movie. Most of the time is saved from lag management, new tricks and better strategy.

This hack of Super Mario World, created with Lunar Magic, contains a Star World which contains themed levels that connect to various locations on the map. Like the original Super Mario World, these levels can be used as a makeshift warp zone. This movie demonstrates this path - navigating the Star World to charge straight to Bowser, leaving much of the game untouched.

This movie is 1:03.16 seconds faster than the previous movie. See authors' comments to see the new glitches.

Arguably one of the most well known and well developed SNES hacks in existence, Super Demo World puts Mario into a new realm that spans well beyond his original adventure.

Features of the hack include:

  • the ability to store unconventional items in the reserve box, such as a koopa, springboard, message box, or vine
  • 120 exits in total, including two secret worlds
  • creative and challenging level design, with some puzzle elements thrown in
  • "new" graphics (mostly backgrounds taken from other games, such as Donkey Kong Country 3 and Mega Man X)

In this run, PangaeaPanga improves upon the previous movie by more than five minutes using newly discovered glitches and a slower overworld route, which counterintuitively saves time.

To see a much shorter run completing the minimum number of stages, see this run.

Arthur's fiancée is once again kidnapped by demons soon before their marriage. Once more Sir Arthur must brave the forces of the underworld in his skivvies. Watch as Ferret Warlord runs through this infamously hard game in record time!

Normally, to fight the final boss of the game, you must play through the game twice. To make the movie less repetitive, Ferret Warlord uses a code to start at the final bosses of the first playthrough. Furthermore, the player must have a special weapon in order to fight the final boss, and this weapon can only be found when the player has fully upgraded armor. Ferret Warlord obtains this weapon at the end of the first autoscrolling level.

Super Gussun Oyoyo is a puzzle game best described as a mixture of Lemmings and Tetris. Two treasure hunters named Gussun and Oyoyo are exploring a dungeon when an earthquake occurs, causing the dungeon to begin sinking. The player controls blocks akin to Tetris pieces, leading Gussun to the dungeon exit before it submerges completely.

This run starts from stage 21, the latest possible stage that the game allows one to start on.

Publisher's note: There is a glitch in the sound between stage 30 and 32 inclusive which is a result of the run itself, and not of the encoding.

This is a remake of Super Mario Bros. 2 present in Super Mario All-Stars. Aside from musical and graphical improvements, it also provides a save feature.

Thanks to a glitch involving Wart and a few other optimizations, author mtvf1 improves his previous effort by 3.45 seconds.

Runs of the NES counterpart and GBA version are also available.

Taking a break from the usual goal of pure speed, Genisto instead decides to break Super Mario Bros 3 from the Super Mario All-Stars pack. This run demonstrates programming errors, abuse of the game engine and commits suicide in ways most people have never even considered.

Mario plays through all 8 worlds in a fashion similar to a warpless run.

- Forgoes warps
- Genre: Platform
The Lost Levels is a remake of the game released in Japan as Super Mario Bros 2. It introduces a number of new obstacles into the standard Super Mario Bros. formula, including poisonous mushrooms, wind, reverse warp zones, and of course many tricky jumps. It's difficult enough that Nintendo of America decided to completely re-theme a different game and release that as Super Mario Bros. 2 instead; The Lost Levels is the first time the Japanese sequel was released to the rest of the world.

This movie saves 164 frames over previous publication. All levels are played, including the secret world 9, and the extremely difficult A through D worlds.

This TAS uses Mario's brother Luigi. He jumps higher than Mario, but acts slower in many ways. However, the movie is in no way worse than the Mario version - some new creative solutions have been found.

This is a warpless version. For a warped one see [2210] FDS Super Mario Bros. 2 (JPN) "warps, Luigi" by HappyLee & KFCMario in 08:13.77.


Watch this TAS be played back on a real SNES.

- Uses a game restart sequence

- Starts from a saved state or SRAM
- Genre: Racing
Super Mario Kart is the first in a popular series of games starring the Mario cast racing go-karts. This run aims to get record times in all tracks at 150cc difficulty. This is achieved mostly by jumping straight into walls, bottomless pits, and lava, among many other things. Mushrooms are also used frequently due to their mysteriously friction-free propulsion powers. A high amount of wall-bouncing is required.

This run is over a minute and a half faster than the previous published run, due to new exploits of the definition of a lap.

Take Square's RPG history & Nintendo's Super Mario series and mix them in a bowl. Add a pinch of comedy and a quart of luck manipulation. Stir thoroughly.

This game doesn't count completion percent, but it still has stuff to accomplish to meet the expectation from a full completion run. The author, was0x's, defined it as follows:

  • All depletable chests
  • Unlock all menus
  • Kill Culex and Jinx
  • Star firework in credits
  • Get all unique items/equips
