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.

Now the remaining 'Toads, Rash and Pimple, must rescue the two captives and stop the deadly duo from fulfilling their plans to control the world.

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.

- Genre: RPG
You control Varik (Ares in the Japanese version, which this TAS is on), who fell down into the ruins when Alexis chased him down and accidentally blew a hole in the ground. Now it's up to you to get Varik (Ares) back out, with no shortage of monsters along the way. You're not alone - There are many others who have also fallen, and are willing to sell items that may help you.

The game is in a top-down view, monsters move about in real time, and the game certainly has RPG elements in that you level up from defeating these monsters. You have three stats that increase separately from level, gaining strength by physically attacking, knowledge by hitting with attack spells, and magic endurance by being hit with magic. The controls are difficult to figure out, with one aspect being the same button that brings up your shield will also attack if you're standing in front of a monster, but once you figure it out, it's not that bad. To reach the end, you travel through over 40 zones, each bearing their various challenges with monsters or traps, and the occasional puzzle.

Osse101 improves the previous TAS by 27 minutes and 30.22 seconds, thanks to various glitches that are only possible on the Japanese version. Please read the submission comments for more details.

Breath of Fire was Capcom's first traditional RPG. It follows a boy named Ryu, one of the last surviving members of an ancient race with the ability to transform into mighty dragons, as he searches the world for his sister. Along the way, Ryu meets other warriors who share his quest and comes into conflict with the Dark Dragon Clan, a militaristic empire who seeks to take over the world by reviving a mad goddess.

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.

The kingdom of Bizyland is in trouble when the evil ruler of the neighboring land, Lasyland, uses a magic mirror to swap kingdoms and kidnap the princess. It's up to the king's chosen warriors to reverse the spell cast by the mirror and save the princess.

Cacoma Knight in Bizyland is a Super NES video game created by Datam Polystar. It is a hybrid of action and puzzle elements. Each level is a single screen. The first image that the player sees is a landscape, for example, a forest or a town. The image will then fade into a "corrupt" version of the landscape, for example, the trees become rotten and buildings become ruined. Each screen has a "Qualify" target that shows how much of the screen must be cleared before the game continues to the next level. The player can then use the Magical Chalk to section off an area of the landscape, using either the borders of existing cleared sections or the borders of the screen. When a full shape is completed with no holes in its borders, the smaller of the two sections created is "purified" and returned to the original state shown at the beginning of the level.

In this run, Meerkov beats the predecessor movie made by WarHippy by 2:20.23 minutes. Lots of time is saved from cutscenes, load time, and lag. Also, nearly every level is improved thanks to a number of tactical changes. Finally, thee levels are skipped in the Japanese version of the game that is used here, while the obsoleted run used the USA version.

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.

While Chrono Trigger (1995) usually takes days to complete, Crono decided he'd rather not have to sit through all the unnecessary stuff, like long cutscenes, unskippable boss fights and key plot events, so he did it in three minutes instead.

The 18-minute improvement comes from utilizing mid-frame resets which were recently implemented in lsnes.

Reading the authors' comments is a requirement if you want so much as a clue to what's going on.

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.

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.

In Claymates, Clayton's father has developed a formula that can manipulate clay into animals. After he refuses to give the formula to a witch doctor, the witch takes off with the formula and Clayton's father and turns Clayton into a lump of clay. Despite his sorry condition, Clayton vows to save his father and embarks on a journey to defeat the witch.

Most of the gameplay consists of bouncing around the stages and transforming into different animals using bits of formula scattered throughout the level. Special abilities are also available that can change Clayton into animals that can take out enemies easier. Between stages, there is a mini-game where robots can be used to clear obstacles.

In this run, quietkane uses strategies such as taking damage and limiting the number of gems collected to save time on the end-level gem tally screen in order to finish this game as fast as possible.

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.

But in this movie, Jennifer decides to leave her friends and escape alone by busting through the mansion's walls in a car. This 3.02 second improvement to the previous movie uses a menu glitch to reduce screen scroll lag. Skipping the Anne pool cutscene and escaping in the car also glitches the ending sequence, causing the credits to display instead of the Ending H cutscene.

We also have a run that gets the best ending.

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 3 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.

The guy who has infinite supply of ammo and destroys worlds bare-chested is back again! And this time he has a shirt and a friend with him.

This very colorful movie by hero of the day plays through the game with both characters at the same time (which is far from trivial to do), and approximately 12 seconds faster than the previous run.

One of the best (and best known) shooters of the 16-bit era, Contra 3: 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.

This movie uses a 'warping' glitch to complete the game. There is also the 2-player version, which does not.

Cyborg 009 is based on the manga and anime of the same name, which began a long time ago. There are eight characters that you can use, but one of them is set and you can only choose two others for each mission.

The run uses 008 (Pyunma) and 005 (Geronimo) most of the time. 008 can jump forward quickly and swim in water, while 005 does heavy damage to bosses. Various power-ups are collected to level-up 009 (Joe) due to an event near the end of the game.

The run uses the easiest difficulty due to the final boss taking less time to beat.

If you play this game, it is recommended to level-up 009 first, and a lot.

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.

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.

Award - SNES TAS of 2017
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.

The author, Tompa, also provided audio commentary of his TAS along with Pichi, which is available right here.

A movie aiming for fastest possible completion of Donkey Kong Country without bothering to enter all the bonus rooms. This run is 19.58 seconds faster than the previous submission, due to new strategies, better optimization, and the discovery of a new glitch that allows Diddy to fly through levels.

This movie improves on its predecessor by 45.28 seconds, primarily by using a debug code to get 75 Kremkoins early, allowing for a faster route through the game. Reading the authors' comments is recommended.

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).

This run is faster than its predecessor by 1:26.40.

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.

In this run, the author, tall, awkwardly jumps into action and completes the game in a little more than 9 minutes. He performs many tricks to do this, a notable one being damage boosting which allows him to skip large sections of a few levels. For more information, please see the author's notes.

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.

This is the fifth game of the series originally known as Dragon Warrior in the US; it remained untranslated until a port to the DS was released in 2008, where it received the name Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride. It tracks the life of our hero, the son of Papas, over a large span of time from his adventurous childhood through tragic adolescence and a joyful marriage as he and his family fight to defeat evil.

You may be interested in watching earlier games in the series.

Dragon View is a side-scrolling role-playing video game released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in November 1994. Released in Japan as Super Drakkhen and otherwise known as Drakkhen II, it is meant to be a prequel to Drakkhen although it bears little resemblance to its predecessor. It uses the same pseudo-3D overworld system for which the series is most famous. Other features of Dragon View are its side-view action role-playing game (RPG) hybrid gameplay (used when exploring more detailed areas such as towns and dungeons), its well-translated first person storyline, and its emphasis on player-driven undirected exploration.

In this run, Khaz makes the game realize how boring it really is, and has it jump straight to the credits roughly halfway through the intended story. A side effect of this particular glitch is the cutscene after the credits getting glitched out and having the main character walk in place, forever.

More information on how this was achieved can be found in the submission notes.

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.

Details about the improvements and decisions in this movie can be read in the submission text.

Our description for the previous movie stated, "Although this being a speedrun (tool-assisted at that), most of the plot of the game is intact...". This time around, not so much. Thanks to some collision detection bugs, including one that shows 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.

Also unlike the previous movie, this one does use a death as a shortcut. However, the teddy bear survives this time around.

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.

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.

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.

In this TAS, pirohiko blazes through the game in under two hours using a host of tricks, glitches, and battle strategies. We recommend reading the author's comments for more information on the route used.


A second YouTube stream is available with an informative overlay that the author used while creating the run.

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.

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.

- Best ending
- Genre: Platform
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. ;)

It's a quiet day at the Mikami Ghost Sweeping Company until a mysterious package arrives. It seems the kindly old storekeeper Yakuchin found a magic statue and figured it would best be kept in Mikami's hands. Of course, where there's magic, there's wealth (or something like that), so Reiko sets out to find the seven gems needed to complete the statue.

GS Mikami: Joreishi wa Nice Body is a side scrolling platform game based on the Ghost Sweeper Mikami manga and anime. The player controls Reiko who can fight off ghosts and monsters with her enchanted baton. The baton can be powered up to shoot lighting or icicles at an angle, but its power is lost if Reiko is hit. Reiko can only hold up to three special weapons, either a scroll that sucks enemies into it, or a gem that freezes time. Each case in the game is either one or two platforming levels long followed by a boss fight.

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.

Hook, based on a movie of the same name, is a somewhat slow platformer game about small boys in tights killing pirates. Awesome!

The movie has just enough action to make it entertaining. Thankfully, there are many parts in the game where the player is forced to fly using fairy dust. The flying breaks up the normal pace of the game nicely.

This is a 45 second improvement over the previous movie. The author left detailed comments on the various improvements.

Inspector Gadget is a cartoon series featuring a bumbling cyborg, his clever niece Penny and her super intelligent dog Brain. Despite his many useful abilities like helicoptering and a hand that comes out of his head, the Inspector must constantly rely upon Penny and Brain to defeat his arch-nemesis Dr. Claw week after week. However, in this game he must save Penny from several kidnappings without such aid. In another major departure from the television series, Dr. Claw's face is shown briefly.

The author abuses Inpector Gadget's gadgets to do things clearly not intended by the game designers. Whether floating through stages or grappling with his head-hand, large sections are skipped and bosses dispatched expeditiously.

This is an improvement of 16.60 seconds over the previous run by the same author due to general optimisation and more effort to reduce lag.

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.

- One player in a multiplayer game
- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Action
- Genre: Platform
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.

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.

This game is about two characters, Chiaki and her reluctant demon servant Zenki. They have saved the world from the forces of darkness before, but apparently once is never enough. Chiaki has a vision of five cloaked figures and knows that only she and Zenki can stop them. They set off at once to track down the demon leaders.

Watch as Dooty rushes through this game in just over 13 minutes using many of Zenki's flashy attacks. Along the way, some stone monuments need to be destroyed in order to proceed. For more details, see the author's comments.

Note: The author plays in Normal mode since Hard mode is not available until you've already beaten the game once. Also, Normal mode reduces the amount of enemies on screen, so it has less lag than Hard mode.

May is an apprentice mage at Magic School and must pass the final exam.

A puzzle game seen from a top-down perspective. The goal of each level is to open the exit by pushing a magic stone on a designated spot. May can also push objects one tile ahead without moving herself. This is often used to get the stone over water that she can't cross herself. May's other ability is to create magic bubbles. She can create bubbles in three different sizes. Bubbles will pop after a certain amount of time, depending on their size. If they pop while next to the stone or another bubble, the stone or bubble will be moved one space. Since May can create several bubbles simultaneously, it is possible, and often necessary, to create chain reactions to maneuver the stone into the desired position.

BrunoVisnadi improves the previous run by 7 minutes and 44.08 seconds, thanks to new and improved strategies in many stages.

Lufia 2 is an adventure RPG prequel to Lufia 1. In this installment, Maxim and his cohorts set out to take down the evil Sinistrals.

The game sports a large amount of puzzles, yet a shockingly low amount of battles. Using RNG manipulation, this movie illustrates how to avoid many unimportant skirmishes so as to cut down on wasted time. This manipulation is also used to get more favorable item drops throughout the whole run.

Note that the (U) version of this ROM contains some graphical glitches. You can read more about these in the submission text.

Lufia 2 is an adventure RPG prequel to Lufia 1. In this installment, Maxim and his cohorts set out to take down the evil Sinistrals.

Normally, the game sports a large amount of puzzles, yet a shockingly low amount of battles. In this movie, however, Genisto uses 2 newly found glitches, explained in the submission text, which let anyone finish the game without even leaving the first room, improving the previous movie by almost 2 minutes.

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.

Rockman & Forte (ロックマン&フォルテ), known as Mega Man & Bass in the western world, used to be the last game chronologically released for the original Rockman/Megaman series, until Rockman & Forte Mirai kara no Chōsensha (ロックマン&フォルテ 未来からの挑戦者) was released on the WonderSwan handheld system.

This game bears a striking resemblance to Mega Man 8, not only in style, but in excessive graphic detail. Similarly to Mega Man X4, the player has the option to choose one of two characters to play through. In this run, Forte is chosen.

sparky takes the game apart with some glitches that allow Forte to zip around in walls. This run is 59.83 seconds faster than the previous run, mostly due to new glitches. Read the author's comments for more details.

There are two more Rockman & Forte runs to watch on this site; featuring completion of the game with Rockman as fast as possible and collection of all CDs with him.

Rockman & Forte (ロックマン&フォルテ), known as Mega Man & Bass in the western world, used to be the last game in the original Rockman/Mega Man series, until Rockman & Forte Mirai kara no Chōsensha (ロックマン&フォルテ 未来からの挑戦者) was released for the WonderSwan.

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.

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.

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.

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 Max Returns is the remake of the NES game Metal Max. It features better graphics and sound, revised areas, references to Metal Max 2, and slightly decreased difficulty.

Because of the requirements for completion in this game, this movie is quite different from the original Metal Max (which was TASed by the same author, suwei). For a list of the differences and more information, see the author's notes.

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.

This run aims to reach the ending as fast as possible and so skips most of the items. If you're looking to watch a run that clears everything in the game, watch this run.

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.

Mickey no Tokyo Disneyland Daibouken (ミッキーの東京ディズニーランド大冒険) (or "Mickey's Great Adventure in Tokyo Disneyland") is a Japan-exclusive Mickey game, but with a completely unique graphical and gameplay style compared to other Mickey games on the SNES. This one has balloons, and a propulsion mechanic similar to the likes of Sparkster and Twinbee.

arandomgameTASer improves his old run by 1:02.86, thanks to better optimisation.

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.

Note: The movie contains semi-realistic violence to be expected with the Mortal Kombat series.

Bruce Lee once said: "I fear not the man who has practiced ten thousand kicks once. But I fear the man who has practiced one kick ten thousand times."

N?K once again pushes that idea to an absurd degree, kicking away 3.42 seconds from his previous time attack of Mortal Kombat II with better optimization.

We also have a "playaround" run, which aims to demonstrate as many tricks and fatalities in the game as possible.

DaTel237 skillfully controls Mr. Nutz by making him hop like a jack rabbit on speed, throwing acorns all over the place and avoiding pesky coins whenever possible. A number of tricks and glitches are used, including floor zipping.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Shooter
In this top-down shooter (playing vaguely like a cross between Contra and early Zelda titles), the protagonist is charged with cleansing a research lab of robotic invaders from virtual reality who escaped by means of an unknown accident. There are a large number of flashback cutscenes, only two of which can be skipped.

Here the author fires weapons more rapidly than the game allows for under real time conditions to defeat enemies ridiculously quickly.

Out of This World is a strange and difficult game. It was one of only a few SNES games to use loading screens.

This run obsoletes the previous movie by 1585 frames.

Quoting bobucles's analysis of the game:
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.

Out to Lunch is a little-known, very fast-paced platforming game where you play as a chef whose food has escaped and your goal is to recapture the food items from around the world. However, this is difficult due to strict time limits, a small amount of lives, and tough enemies that can either kill you or infect the food and turn it against you.

Thanks to much better optimization, Alyosha beats one of the oldest previously unobsoleted runs by over a minute.
