Adventure is a first-party game released in 1979 for the Atari 2600. The goal of the game is to find the enchanted chalice and return it to the gold castle while avoiding the three dragons guarding it. It was the first action-adventure game, and also the first game to have an inventory, a continue system, and a widely-known Easter egg.

The author, TehSeven, ignores the fearsome dragons and breezes through the maze, finishing the quest in a little over half a minute.

You're trapped! Your disabled nuclear submarine, resting perilously on an undersea ledge, has begun taking on water. With time running out for you and your crew – and with your onboard torpedoes shaken loose by an eerie current from deep under the sea floor – it's up to you alone whether you sink or swim!

The objective of Airlock is to retrieve the hatch keys and make your way to the next level before your compartment floods. But at the same time you must avoid the torpedoes that have been shaken loose and which, when they cross your path, rob you of precious time.

In this run, Gay makes his way through the levels of the disabled nuclear submarine, avoiding loose torpedoes and zipping through obstacles to escape as fast as possible.

In Dodge 'Em (1980), you control a race car on a four lane track, and your goal is to collect all of the dots in order to earn points and advance to the next level! The race track is divided into four quadrants with a break in the lanes between them, and you can change lanes only within these breaks. A second car will travel in the opposite direction and try to get into your lane and crash you, so you need to make sure you switch to any lane it isn't in! You can travel at two different speeds (fast and slow), and even have a second player control the enemy car.

In this mesmerizing movie, watch Yep2yel speed around the race track and beat the first round of the game in just over a minute.

Donkey Kong is a classic arcade game that spawned many ports, including this very Atari 2600 port. This port, however, only has two stages: 25m and 100m, possibly due to the limitations of the console.

Due to the port being even shorter in length than its NES counterpart, this run by dekutony and Weegeechan beats the game in just under 40 seconds.

E.T. The Extraterrestial, based on the film of the same name, is one of the worst video games ever released. It contributed to Atari's massive financial losses during 1983 and 1984. As a result of overproduction and returns, millions of unsold cartridges were buried in an Alamogordo, New Mexico landfill.

The game was developed in five weeks and Atari decided to skip audience testing for the product due to time limitations.

For our first Atari 2600 movie, partners in crime adelikat and Cardboard assemble the interplanetary telephone and call E.T.'s home planet in a record-breaking 25.25 seconds. For details on how they did it, read the authors' commentary.

Initially published as a commercial game between Invasion of the Vorticons and Goodbye, Galaxy! in 1991, Commander Keen: Keen Dreams was largely overlooked until it saw a shareware release in late 1992 almost a year after Goodbye, Galaxy!. It is informally known as Keen 3.5 among fans.

In Keen Dreams, Commander Keen goes to sleep and finds himself in the land of Tuberia, where he discovers that Earth children are being trapped in their sleep to work as slaves for the evil King Boobus Tuber. Out of ammo and lacking his trusty pogo stick, Keen must resort to scavenging Flower Power and Boobus Bombs from the local flora in order to combat the tuberian threat.

In this TAS, slamo deactivates the Dream Machine in record time utilizing a variety of glitches and quirks unique to this Keen game. Reading the author's commentary is recommended.

The classic Metal Slug series comes to DS with Metal Slug 7. Although there is only one player this time, this version is notable for allowing the player to keep two weapons and switch freely between them.

This run uses death to switch between Eri and Tarma, and to obtain more grenades. You may also wish to see the run using "Marco" with no deaths.

Also check out other Metal Slug runs such as Metal Slug, Metal Slug X, Metal Slug 3, Metal Slug 4, Metal Slug 5 and Metal Slug Advance.

You Have to Burn the Rope is a very hard game. You have to burn the rope there.

More seriously, this is a Nintendo DS port of an intentionally trivial Flash game created by the Swedish student Kian "Mazapán" Bashiri. It was created as a satire, specifically to make fun of other games that limit the player's interaction by being easy, linear, or heavily controlled and jokingly ask at which point these games also cease to be games. -Bashiri

This run by arandomgameTASer uses the latest version of the game and beats the previous publication through an additional corner boost.

You Have to Burn the Rope is a very hard game. You have to burn the rope there.

More seriously, this is a Nintendo DS port of an intentionally trivial Flash game created by the Swedish student Kian "Mazapán" Bashiri. It was created as a satire, specifically to make fun of other games that limit the player's interaction by being easy, linear, or heavily controlled and jokingly ask at which point these games also cease to be games. -Bashiri

In this run, Mro314 uses a few tricks like corner boosting and jumping off of ledges to help him complete the game in the fastest time possible.

Eggerland is a predecessor of the NES Adventures of Lolo games, and in certain ways, it has much more features than Adventures of Lolo 1. The author has explained the game (and the movie) very well, so we recommend reading his comments.
This movie abuses a couple of the game bugs in a surprising way.

Note that this is a Famicom Disk System game. Read What is FDS for more information.

Without warning, the forces of Blue Moon mount an assault on the nation of Orange Star. Only Orange Star's new advisor, in collaboration with Orange Star's commanding officers, can stop them and get to the truth behind this sinister plot.

At least, that's what they'd normally do if they weren't capable of just magically compelling their opponents to surrender at the sight of them.

Using a glitch in the design maps mode of the game, this run completes the game impossibly quickly by forcing opponents to yield, allowing instant wins in the campaign missions.

When played normally, Castlevania: Circle of the Moon is a rather long game, in which exploration, leveling up, and killing bosses in order to gain access to different items or portions of the castle is necessary. However, series of glitches involving DSS combos throw all these aspects of gameplay out of the window, allowing the player to warp directly to Dracula and kill him humiliatingly in just over 5 minutes.

This movie is a joint venture between Cardboard & zggzdydp, in which 11.2 seconds were saved over the previous version by OgreSlayeR.

This run uses a glitch that allows the author to skip almost immediately to the final stage, much in the fashion of the published Arkanoid run. Don't be surprised if you have to sit through a demo reel.

This run uses several glitches involving the demo reel that allows the author to skip almost immediately to partway through the final boss (much in the fashion of the published Arkanoid run). Since it's not necessary to play through the final stage, this shaves 3:02.15 from the run.

There are now 16 characters available for you to choose. The battle system became more complicated, thanks to the variety of moves you can perform. Beside special attacks which you can execute if you build up your Tension Gauge by attacking or advancing towards your opponent, there is also a variety of defensing moves to perform. The instant kill moves are back from the previous game.

The Mega Man Battle Network series envisions Mega Man and his friends and enemies as computer programs rather than robots. It also changes gameplay from platformer to RPG, with battle mechanics similar to collectible card games.

The second game has Lan and Mega Man fighting a terrorist organization called Gospel, but this TAS divulges little of the plot. mtvf1 races through the game, avoiding unnecessary random battles and precisely manipulating battle chip winnings and order to quickly overcome all foes. We also have a run for the first game in the series.

Monster House is a 2006 animated film about a haunted house and three children trying to best it. The movie was reasonably successful; so like most successful movies, it got a spinoff game.

While it is not the most interesting game ever during normal play, Monster House becomes much more interesting when it's thoroughly broken. Here, the author uses an out of bounds glitch to break the game, allowing for quite a bit of time saving.

Mr. Driller 2 is a fast-paced puzzle game where you have to drill to the bottom of the level within a fixed time limit.

In this run, the author drills through the ten time attack courses in slightly over seven and a half minutes. Furthermore, he aims primarily for in-game time, as it adds to the entertainment value and adds also to the strategy, as there are time bonuses in this mode which subtract time.

Pokémon Sapphire, along with Pokémon Ruby and Emerald, is part of the third-generation Pokémon games, after Pokémon Gold and Silver. Noticeable differences include the graphics and interface, Pokémon abilities, and the running shoes that allow the player to move around in the outside overworld very fast, before getting the bike.

This run improves on the author's previous run by 96 seconds, mostly due to using a different Pokemon a third of the way through. Mudkip, the chosen starter, is a Water Pokémon that has Water/Ground evolutions. After the third gym, Machop, a Fighting type, is used. Its ability allows the Attack stat to be multiplied by 1.5x if it receives a status condition. The paralysis effect is no accident.

Note: You need to have Real Time Clock on and use Flash 128k as Save Type. Real Time Clock is for sync, while Flash 128k is to prevent the game from giving a white screen.

Mudkip, the chosen starter, is a Water Pokémon that has Water/Ground evolutions. Almost all battle action involves this one Pokémon until the legendary Kyogre (exclusive to Sapphire) is captured, thus sweeping through the last battles with ease.

Note: In case there are white-screen ROM issues, the run is also reported to work on the following ROMs:

  • Pokemon Sapphire (U) [hIRff]
  • Pokemon Sapphire (U) [h1] (Clock)

Shining Soul II is the last 'Shining' title to reach American shores, and the author's 5th 'Shining' TAS on the site. Unlike some previous games in the series, this game and its prequel play more like traditional dungeon-crawlers. This game, like its prequel, allows the player to pick a character type: in this run, the character is a ninja.

The author uses speed magic to run by numerous enemies and slash through multiple bosses at low levels. Enjoy the silly story and the player-worship bosses perform after every defeat!

The games are monster-battling games, where the player contacts various creatures using a cell phone-like device called a D-Shot in order to get them to battle the foes he or she will encounter. The name of the series derives from Keitai, which is Japanese for "cell phone," since phoning creatures is an integral part of the game, and "fang," to symbolise the various beasts involved.

This movie is about half as long as its predecessor. Significant glitching is used; you will likely have to read the authors' comments to understand what's going on.

Lucky Luke is based on a comic series created by Belgian cartoonist Maurice De Bevere. The series was very popular in Europe, so it's not surprising that it was adapted into a game.

TheKDX7, author of the other Lucky Luke run, collects all 60 stars throughout all 12 levels (including 5 hidden ones) and the 2 big hearts in the Saloon and Cheyenne Mountains levels in order to achieve 100% completion.

Lucky Luke is a game based on a famous comic series created by Belgian cartoonist Maurice De Bevere. The gun-slinging Dalton brothers have escaped from jail again and are up to no good, and it's up to the titular cowboy to catch the criminals and lock them back up.

While the author, TheKDX7, finishes the platforming stages as fast as possible, he also adds in some entertainment to the long autoscrollers to make them more interesting.

This is an improvement of 480 frames over the first Lucky Luke TAS. There is also a run by the same author which achieves 100% completion.

This GBC game is based off the popular television series Mission: Impossible.

Following the spirit of that series, this is a stealth-based game. Supposedly tricky tasks are to be performed covertly. But in this movie, stealth is clearly not one of the author's highest priorities. It's all running through guards, as if they weren't there. Yet the player does not die.

In this game featuring the famous SpongeBob SquarePants, SpongeBob stumbles upon a legendary statue that opens the way to the Dutchman’s Underworld. SpongeBob must unlock the statue and defeat the Flying Dutchman to get the Golden Spatula and become the Master Fry Cook.

The authors improved the previous movie by 1:19.40, because of a new route and the fact that SpongeBob has mastered the art of flying a new glitch that allows him to jump very high. In fact, with the spring shoes equipped, he can go up as high as he wants until he hits an object. For more information, check out the submission text.

This run is a collaboration between the previous two authors, CoolKirby and jlun2, and nitrogenesis, who discovered the jump glitch and made two submissions before being bested by jlun2's attempt. This run is a whopping 13.09 faster than the best attempt by a single author. Teamwork is strength!

Stuart Little, the clever, ever-cheerful mouse from the popular movie and classic children's book, is out to take on newfound enemies and domestic obstacles in order to get home safely. The game features plenty of platforms and hazards to run, jump, and flip through, and three difficulty settings. The levels are set in many of the movie's favorite locations, including the thrilling model boat race, a topsy-turvy miniature golf course, a toy cowboy town, and New York's Central Park.

In this run, Fog plays on the hardest difficulty, which features some very out-of-the-way items as well as different racing paths not seen in the easiest difficulty.

Mario is back to the Game Boy, but this time in color.

Super Mario Bros. Deluxe is a remake of Super Mario Bros. with some new game modes, including a challenge mode where coins and time remaining are crucial to gaining the target score, and a race mode where Mario competes against Boo to reach each level's finish first.

This run completes the Original mode, and 15 frames faster than the previous version. While this mode looks like a direct port of the NES game, there are different physics and glitches, making optimizing Deluxe a very different task.

There is also a run of the You vs. Boo mode by the same authors.

Setting of the dream is a colorful, simplistic world, naivistic in its exaggerations and lack of realistic attributes. An open plain where the sun always seems to shine. But it's a foreign place, with Xena apparently having wound up there by an accident. She is lost, and her body shows out of ordinary signs. It's being the chubby girl of the classroom once again. Her emotional immaturity and insecurity has materialized in the most conniving manner right before our mortal eyes.

This nightmare ends in just 3 minutes and 37 seconds, however, thanks to the game being broken apart by some really severe glitches.

It is several years after the death of Dr. Von Frankenbone, and things around the castle are starting to fall apart. The electricity bill hasn't been paid in some time, and now the Frankenstein-like character Franky needs to find the cash to pay it off. The locals have trapped Franky inside the late doctor's private manor, and he must escape and piece together the golden tablet depicting his beautiful girlfriend Bitsy in order to pay the bills.

Dr. Franken II is a side-scrolling platformer that places you in control of Franky as he searches far and wide for the pieces of the golden tablet, including exotic locales like Egypt and the bottom of the ocean. Like the first Dr. Franken, there are many trap doors, monsters, and other obstacles. Keys are needed to unlock new areas of the game, and they can be found in the far reaches of the level.

The author, Flip, runs and jumps through the levels with precision, completing the tablet and saving Franky's home in under 14 minutes.

Final Fantasy Adventure is the first game of the Seiken Densetsu (聖剣伝説) series but it does contains some classic Final Fantasy elements. The series is probably best known for the SNES game Secret of Mana. This game was later remade on the Gameboy Advance as Sword of Mana. Gameplay is quite similar to a Zelda game, however there is level building.

In this run, MattyXB demonstrates how to flawlessly beat the game. What's unusual is that he also uses some glitches to completely skip parts in the game saving over 20 minutes. The "Power" option is selected on every level-up.

Those trying to follow the story in this movie will have a hard time, since the main characters were both named "A" and integral points in the story were skipped.

Another run of Final Fantasy Adventure, but this time it's the whole game without any warps.

Watch MattyXB defeat the evil Dark Lord and others using the "Power" option for every level-up, and glitching out the game where possible.

It's easier to follow the story in this run, but still tricky at times because both main characters were named "A".

Akumajou Special - Boku Dracula-kun (also known as Kid Dracula) is simultaneously a remake and sequel to the Famicom game of the same title. As a spinoff of the Castlevania series, this game is much more light-hearted, and features a quirky array of enemies that range from the standard skeletons, witches and ghouls to... ghost-Nazis, giant robots and aliens!?

Enjoy the catchy music as Sir VG breezes through the game, making clever use of the vampiric powers available to the eponymous child of Dracula, and completely humiliating the stubborn bosses that get in his way.

In this special episode of Looney Tunes, Bugs, Daffy, Tweety, Porky, Taz, Speedy Gonzales, and the Road Runner decide to rip off popular games such as Atomic Runner, Sonic the Hedgehog & Gradius. They do this by going through this Sunsoft classic as fast as possible so that they don't die from all of the ripoffs. This has led to some... strange results.

This time Wily is back, or actually forwards – in time that is; where he plans to destroy the future and bring back technology to destroy the past. Join Mega Man as he too travels to the future to prevent Wily and face his greatest enemy yet.

This run doesn't really perform any mind boggling glitches like some other Mega Man runs on this site, but it still has the same classic action, and pulls off some very unlikely maneuvers that are enjoyable to watch.

This is an 8 second improvement over the author's previous movie.

This is Metroid II: Return of Samus completed with all the items collected. Being truthful to the original Metroid values, the game holds many items cleverly hidden, so finding all of them is not an easy task.

That being said, Metroid II doesn't keep track of the collected items' percentage. Moreover, the game has two excessive Energy tanks and an additional copy of each beam. It's been agreed that the author should take all the E-tanks, and at least one copy of each beam. However, due to the apparent linearity of this game, collecting so many additional items doesn't make the movie dramatically slower.

Note: This movie does not use secret worlds, also known as "select glitch".

This run features the use of a pause glitch to allow extreme jumps, saving time from normal platforming or creating otherwise impossible routes to beat the stages in unintended ways.

Rolan's Curse is like a simplified version of the NES Legend of Zelda with slower gameplay and more restricted game world, resulting in a primitive hack-and-slash experience. Nevertheless, there exists an interesting storyline: The kingdom of Rolan has been invaded by the forces of some evil being called Barius. However, in this movie the final boss is never actually seen. Instead of meeting Barius face to face, the hero dies while defeating the first level boss. The game then decides to freak out and end right there, declaring the rest of the story unnecessary.

This is 0.25 seconds faster than the previous movie, arising from a substantial amount of testing and optimisation.

A simple platformer (similar to some Mario games) that illustrates damage abuse well. The player does not go out of the way to pick up items.

Selected quote from author: Introduction: Tom and Jerry is a kid’s cartoon where the mouse generally triumphs, with the cat being ignominiously defeated. The video game is a side scroller, with a lot of up-and-down motion as well. Jerry can take 4 hits before dying – the fifth kills him.

SoulCalibur II continues the tradition set by Soul Blade on the PlayStation and SoulCalibur on the Dreamcast with intense action and plenty of weapons to deal the massive blows. Each console version of the game also includes a unique character for the platform; in the GameCube version, it's Link from The Legend of Zelda.

This run by N?K aims for fastest time in Arcade mode by playing as Nightmare and ending fights quickly through extensive use of ring-outs.


Note: In order to get this movie to sync, the free DSP files included with Dolphin must be used. Playing back the run using DSP files dumped from a real GameCube will result in a desync.

Alex Kidd supposedly was Sega's rival to Nintendo's Mario, but after Sonic the Hedgehog was released, they completely forgot about the Alex Kidd series. This difficult game is shorter than the Master system version, but is a very tight platformer nonetheless.

This 9 second improvement goes through the game quickly and makes use of the helicopter and the motorbike in order to increase speed.

Altered Beast is a game that looks like it could have been found in an arcade playing machine. In each level, the player must beat collect 3 powerups in order to transform into a powerful beast and fight the boss of that level. This game was one of the first games of the Sega Genesis system.

This might look like it's an auto-scrolling game, but in fact the scroll speed depends on if there are any enemies on screen. The player tries to kill all enemies as soon as possible to increase the scroll speed.

A game where you must assemble your shredded-up ticket to go to a heavy metal concert.

When controlling one character the other is invincible. The author often switches rapidly between the characters so that enemy projectiles goes right through them.

Bonanza Bros. (1991) is a shooter-platform game that was first released in the arcades and then ported to the Sega Genesis, and can be played in a cooperative 2 player mode.

The plot involves the Bonanza Brothers: Robo and Mobo, who resemble the Blues Brothers, but are thieves who steal many treasures from banks, mansions and casinos.

In this run, the author steals as many treasures as he can and avoids the police by controlling the 2 players... at the same time!

This movie here is one that makes little to no sense to someone who isn't familiar with the game. The main character can move very fast and the dark graphics don't help in figuring out what's going on. There is a lot more going on in this movie than meets the eye. For example, the player uses a secret warp involving combining the alchemy potions that are scattered throughout the levels.

This improves the previous run of the game by 5 minutes & 30 seconds through several optimizations as well as a new glitch which creates massive shortcuts.

For more information about what's going on in this game, we recommend reading the author's comments at the submission page.

NOTE: Don't be fooled by the fake credits after the final level. The game is not quite over yet.

Crack Down (クラックダウン) is a run and gun arcade game originally released by Sega in 1989, and ported to the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis in 1990.

The two heroes, Ben and Andy, have to get through the levels as quickly as possible placing bombs on X marks scattered around the levels. Although the levels are heavily defended, the player has an array of weaponry including a cannon, machine gun, and superbombs.

This game also features some neat music.

This run has Arcree controlling both players in order to beat the game as fast as possible. We also have a 1 player run available, also by Arcree, showing how fast the game can be beaten with only a single player.

In this game, you get to play as Pinocchio, the carpenter Geppetto's living wooden puppet. Pinocchio goes through scenes from Disney's animated film, which itself was based on a children's novel.

As the goblin army makes their last push into Duke Barrik’s castle, the sky is ripped open and both armies are sucked into the void. Duke Barrik's castle is transported to a valley enclosed with impossibly tall cliffs and a brilliant red sun overhead. The Duke requests that the four player characters explore this strange environment in order to find allies.

As though it were a walk in the park (And a few mazes), the game is completed in a fast half hour, thanks to much luck manipulation.

The input is continued to the end of the movie to speed up the ending. In fact, the game is practically over when the final scroll is read.

Earthworm Jim is the unlikely story of an earthworm who finds a suit with super powers and goes on a rampage to protect earth and his puppy Peter. The game follows the absurd spirit of the story: for example, the suit can use Jim for a whip, there is a boss who attacks by vomiting fish, fighting lawyers in hell, and bungee cords made out of snot.

This is the first submission for this game. You will do yourself a favour if you fast-forward the boring Andy's Asteroids bonus-levels.

Flashback is a sci-fi platformer in the style of Prince of Persia. There is a lot of jumping, rolling and climbing to move around the levels.

This movie uses a lot of bugs to get through the game faster. The most prominent one is walking through walls, which renders keys obsolete. Also, if you finish a level without having an important item, the game assumes you have it anyway.

We recommend reading the author's comments of this run.

Gods is a game about someone who wants to become a god and gain immortality. This is a delicate and paradoxical issue, since on one hand temporal immortality can be bought at just about every shop, and on the other hand the hero dies 11 (eleven) times, which has to be some kind of Nesvideos record.

Another fun aspect is bomb-jumping, which allows both higher jumps and traveling vertically through walls. Almost the whole final level is skipped with this trick.

James Pond 3: Operation Starfish (1993) is a platform game starring a super agile fish named James Pond, which has been Amiga's somewhat preemptive answer to Sonic the Hedgehog and Super Mario World games. The physics of this game allow for many interesting acrobatics, like running up the walls and ceilings at breakneck speed. As such, these abilities are abused to the point where, in some parts, Pond bounces around as fast as Sonic does.

Following the game's plot, the evil Dr. Maybe attempts to take over the dairy industry, for which he constructs a giant stronghold on the Moon. Because, as you probably know, its surface is made of cheese. The overworld map spans over 100 levels, but most of them are optional.

This run is the author's second submission for this game. The Cheese Mines and Stiltonium Machines were destroyed in order to reach the good ending. According to the author, the bad ending is about as bad as losing the game.

This is a raptor movie of the Genesis version of Jurassic Park, which is completely different from the SNES version. In this game, you can choose between Grant and the raptor, each with his own set of levels. Grant's levels are like Prince of Persia except with dinosaurs and better weapons. The raptor's levels go by much faster.

The collision detection is quite buggy, and the author takes advantage of this.

King's Bounty is a turn-based strategy game. The objective is to recover the Sceptre of Order. Map pieces that reveal the location of the sceptre are gained by defeating villains and finding special artifacts.

A normal play session would involve exploring four large continents and battling hundreds of creatures, but in this movie nobody gets killed and everyone is happy.

The input length is 10 seconds long, only 25 frames of which is actual gameplay!

Mystic Defender is the USA version of the Japanese game "孔雀王2" (Kujaku-Oh Ni, which means "The Peacock King 2"). Except for changing the clothing of the hero and deleting the intro and the names of the stages, everything seems to be the same.

Because Peacock the hero is not a very smart hero, he cannot walk and use his arms at the same time (a common video game character disability). Thus he must jump to be able to use his arms. If he is charging a bigger shot when he lands, he forgets to walk for a few frames, so you cannot charge up a shot too early. It's all very delicate.

This is Highness' first published movie here.

In this final installment of the famous Phantasy Star saga, our protagonist, while out on a routine assignment, uncovers evidence pointing to a sinister threat to the entire solar system. One thing leads to another and he and the rest of his party eventually find themselves fighting the root of all evil. Such a quest would normally take at least ten hours, but with copious amounts of luck manipulation, it can be reduced to just under an hour and a half.

This is an improvement of 7 minutes and 15 seconds over the previously published run. A large part of this improvement is due to a new strategy involving a rollover glitch which boosts Chaz's strength. This glitch requires Chaz to have a low level, so Janus gets Chaz killed in many battles to avoid leveling him up.


As a bonus, FreshFeeling has provided an audio commentary which explains many of the strategies and provides some interesting trivia.

Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure is a sequel to an old Atari game and shares a concept similar to its predecessor: Get through the jungle alive and fight something in the end.

The Genesis version features 2 additional levels, so this TAS is longer than the run of the SNES version.

Here we have a Disney game not made by Capcom. Interesting!

In this game, sliding is faster than running. Or, as Nifboy put it: Well, here's an improvement to the Sliding Hell, also known as Quackshot.

This TAS is more than a minute and a half faster than the previous Quackshot run. The improvements consists of more sliding in different places, a slightly better route in the Tiger Castle, and the discovery of some neat bugs. See the author's comments for a full list of improvements.

This movie has similar type of difficulty as Hi No Tori.

In this second game of the series, watch nearly three and a half hours of luck manipulation so intense that it took scripting and bot-work to perform most of it. Most of the bosses in the second half of the run die in one or two rounds.

This run plays on "Ouch!" difficulty, which was intended to be the hardest difficulty level.

If you enjoyed this, be sure to check out the first game in the series as well.

Shinobi 3: Return of the Ninja Master is the last game in the Genesis Shinobi series, going back to the formula found in the first game after a fairly experimental second installation. The ninja, named "Joe" like many other of Japanese ancenstry, has increased his repertoire and can now run, jumpkick, scale walls, and ride horses.

This movie plays the hardest difficulty and starts with zero shurikens (although it picks some up during the run). Uses death as a shortcut is marked because Joe has the ability to sacrifice a life to damage all enemies on the screen.

Dr. Robotnik is at it again, and this time he has set up a Pinball Defense System inside of a volcano. Fortunately, Sonic makes a good pinball and he easily infiltrates the system, recovering the chaos emeralds hidden within and making short work of the bosses.

The author has improved this run by almost a minute through glitching and more precise control.

A typical streetfighting game which spawned the popular Streets of Rage triology. This game is rumored to have used the same engine as Golden Axe, which is why the A button summons magic (sort of) to damage all enemies on screen, instead of doing some sort of roundhouse, like almost all other beat'em ups.

Completed on the hardest difficulty with Axel without getting hit.

This game is supposedly about an alien taking control over earth, but since the first level says "Казахская ССР", there are small red stars everywhere, and one of the bosses holds a hammer and sickle... well, we all know what this game is really about.

Superman is a game about a man of steel, in tights and underpants on the outside. Invulnerability, moving cars and planets, super-speed, superhuman intelligence - all of those would not be seen in this movie. It was probably made in the beginning of his career. Instead you can enjoy groovy music Sunsoft composers of those times were known for.

The Immortal is a dungon game with spells, goblins, and of course countless traps of instant death. The story is quite humorous at times.

Selected comments from the author: I don't get the best possible ending here, in which the hero is rescued by a girl instead of a goblin (but hey, maybe some people would prefer the goblin), because that would take more time.

Here is my movie for the Genesis version of Lion King, almost 100 seconds faster than Ouzo's previously submitted one. This game roughly follows the plot of one of the highest grossing movies worldwide, but if you are watching this 'tool-assisted speedrun' for the story, you will be missing out.

In this action/puzzle game you control three vikings lost in time and space, each with their own special abilities needed to solve the levels. If two vikings are on screen at the same time, both can be controlled. (Actually, the game supports three simultaneous players, but the GMV movie format doesn't yet.)

An improved version by the same author is in progress.

In X-men 2: Clone Wars, the alien race Phalanx invade the earth and the X-men and some X-women try to stop them.

You get to choose which X-man to play every stage as. Most of the time Nightcrawler is used because he has the highest movement speed. Second in command is Wolverine because he has the second highest speed and also deals a ton of damage.

The game is unique in the regard that it starts as soon as you power on your console. No SEGA logo, no title screen, you don't get to choose a character. Normally the game pseudorandomly gives you Beast, but changing the types of controllers (3- or 6-button) throws off the start-up timing enough that a faster character can be gotten.

This movie features some nifty tricks and shortcuts, such as abusing Nightcrawler's teleport, attacking through floors, and going extra fast in the falling levels. This game has had several attempts, but this is the first published version.

Gordo 106: The Mutated Lab Monkey follows a mutated monkey on a quest to rescue trapped animals from the evil N. Human. The game is incredibly difficult due to the enemies having huge hitboxes and dealing large amounts of damage with each hit.

In the first publication for the Atari Lynx, adelikat navigates through the game, running through the hordes of enemies instead of wasting time attempting to fight them, and beating it in the fastest time possible.

Invasion of the Zombie Monsters is a B-Movie styled platformer for MSX. You take control of Ned, a geek trying to save his girlfriend from a giant demon terrorizing the city. This game was designed to be a throwback to games like Legend of Hero Tonma and Ghouls 'n Ghosts.

Ignoring the game's difficulty, the author, NitroGenesis, shreds through hordes of zombies and gets the girl in less than 5 minutes by manipulating bosses and abusing hitboxes.

As you can see here, the original Castlevania wasn't only on the NES, but also on the MSX computer. scrimpeh did on the MSX Castlevania what Phil Côté & Morrison did on the NES Castlevania.

This version is different in some important ways. For instance, you must collect a white key in each stage to advance to the next stage. The chain whip is lost after each boss battle. Some subweapons can be bought from sitting bystanders in white or red clothes.


Note: To play the OMR file, you'll need to use the Panasonic FS-A1WSX bios and openMSX 0.8.0.dev-11840.

Similar to the Tekken series, this run wins all encounters via various ways to kill the enemy in a single round. Since all characters are identical in terms of speed, Saeki is used as he is the default character.

Take a collection of fist-fighters, wrestlers and martial arts experts, and combine them into one tournament. But instead of simply depleting the health bar, you must win points depending on how you defeat an opponent; for example, ring-outs are 1 point, special moves 4 points and counters for special moves 2 points.

This run employs various ways to win encounters in a single round by gaining more points than the enemy. As speed is the goal, the opponent is usually taken down before getting the chance to score points. Ryuji is used because of his extremely fast counter-throw.

Glover is an animated cartoon-like glove (go figure), complete with only 4 digits. With a ball he can transform into several different forms, he must complete puzzles and navigate dangerous terrain.

The author takes many shortcuts, specifically the kind that were not intended to be used. Read the author's submission for more information about the bugs used.

Mystical Ninja, otherwise known as Ganbare Goemon, is one of Konami's longest-running series, yet remains mostly localised to Japan (thanks in part to cultural differences; the series is very Japanese). This is the first of three games for the series released for the N64.

What begins as a quest to investigate an attack on a castle quickly evolves into a race to stop a plot to transform Japan into... a giant stage.

ウッチャンナンチャンの炎のチャレンジャー 電流イライラ棒 (Ucchannanchan's Passionate Challenger: Irritating Electric Rod) is a faithful recreation of the mechanical wire loop game popular in Japan, in which the player must guide an electrified rod through a path of parallel metal wires as fast as he or she can without touching the wires.

This adaptation is viewed from the perspective of the end of the metal rod. There are six courses consisting of narrow pathways with curves and obstacles. Later courses introduce moving obstacles and sections where the screen slightly tilts. Just like the real game, touching the wires results in instant loss and the gameplay is commentated by an enthusiastic announcer.

This run by asutoro plays through all six levels, often barely avoiding contact with wires and obstacles and finishing each course in record time.

The Adventure Island game series is known for its extreme straightforwardness. Regardless, the games are pretty fast-paced so if you have some free time on your hands, shut down your brain and watch this carefree TAS.

This version is significantly shorter than the previous movie mainly due to the use of warps, but also from better precision and some new tricks.

The goal in the game is to collect all hearts in every stage, and when that is done, get the ball in the chest to open the door to the next room.

Although Lolo is a puzzle game, it is surprisingly nontrivial for speedrunning, as proven by the fact that this is the author's ninth version.

This one is about 2 seconds faster than the previous due to various optimizations. You can read the full list in the submission message.

Adventures of Lolo (1989) was the first game of the Eggerland series that received a Western release. The series itself is rather loosely related to Kirby series: both have been developed by the same company (HAL Laboratory), and Eggerland protagonists Lolo and Lala make cameo appearances in Kirby games as Lololo and Lalala.

The goal of the game is to collect all hearts in every stage, then get the ball from the chest to open the door to the next room.

Lolo may seem simplistic, but it remains being a truly well-made puzzle. Finding optimal solutions to most of the rooms has proven to be a very nontrivial task, and every once in a while a new improvement is found.

As such, this is Baxter's 10th attempt at this game, this time only 14 frames faster than the previous. Two rooms have been improved.


Important! For the weak-spirited who aren't willing to watch the run all over again only for the improved rooms, the author has inserted an easter egg into the key input movie! If you run the same .fcm on the NES game Defenders of the Crown, it will as well complete it in just 3 minutes and 38 seconds.

Use "Defenders of the Crown (U).nes" ROM to watch it.

The goal in the game is to collect all hearts in every stage, and when that is done, get the ball in the chest to open the door to the next room.

This run aims to beat every room as fast as possible, often by using strategies the game developers never thought about. Strategies were developed by many players, such as Bag of Magic Food, CtrlAltDestroy and of course Randil and Hanzou.

Amagon is an anti-heroic marine who has been sent to explore an island in the South Pacific. You wouldn't know he's a marine, since he doesn't wear a marine uniform, or long pants, or much of anything when he transforms into a giant strong man twice his size. Amagon's goals appear to be to (1) slaughter the majority of the wildlife on the island, (2) cover up the existence of dinosaurs and aliens by massacring them, and (3) flee the scene on a rescue boat.

Archon: The Light and the Dark is Battle Chess to the extreme. Instead of just capturing pieces like a wimp, upon confrontation, the two pieces are placed in a 'combat arena' in which they must fight to the death. To win, you either have to defeat all of your opponents pieces or hold all five Magic Squares at one time. The author, Twisted Eye, chooses the latter to complete the game in 1:15.51.

Astyanax (1990) is the story of a studly 16-year-old boy named Astyanax who is summoned to the world of Remlia in order to save the enchantress Princess Rosebud from the evil wizard Blackhorn, who wants to rule the world.

It is a somewhat clumsy game. For one, Astyanax is twice as big as he appears, and so he is easily hit unless one plays carefully. The controls are also very bad. The sum of these factors is that it's a difficult game to play, but that's part of what makes this movie interesting—especially for those who have played this game.

Thanks to effective lag management and using a different weapon, the author has achieved 85 seconds worth of improvement over the previous movie by Walker Boh.

In this game, the hero—Duke Geraden—travels to Darklarza Castle in order to rescue Princess Amoreena from the Dragon Master. Castle of Dragon has all the elements of a bad game: it's clumsy, it looks and sounds horrible, and it has been made almost impossible to beat by implementing a lot of random factors into it. Keeping these things in mind... Josh's movie is not far from perfect, but it will probably impress only hardcore fans of the game who know how hard it is to beat this game.

Cheetahmen II is the unfinished sequel to game #52 of Action 52. The game contains 6 of the 10 levels originally proposed, in which the player takes control of Apollo, and Hercules, Aries, swiching off after every second level. Sadly, it's only possible to play 4 of the levels without altering the ROM image or experiencing a very rare glitch that starts the game with Aries. was0x completes these four levels in 2:20.26, but a run of the hacked game with all 6 levels may obsolete this one.

Continuing the trend of NES games based on popular Japanese TV shows, Jetman is apparently about multi-colored heroes and robots duking it out. No, it's not Power Rangers.

This movie probably qualifies for "Quickest Giant Robot Fights."

This movie is a 4.46 second improvement over the previous movie by AnS.

Circus Charlie is a simple game that most people probably know from pirate multigame carts. The first stages are easy for anyone even on real NES, but stage 3 is already quite challenging.

This movie plays "1 player game A" (easy).

Stage times: 3410, 3560 , 3750 , 3890 , 4270

This version is several seconds faster than the previous version by Walker Boh and also several frames faster than Walker Boh's unreleased improved version.

This movie plays "1 player game A" (easy). Ironically, this is MORE challenging for tool-assisted gameplay.

Stage times: 3410, 3560, 3750, 3890, 4270.

This movie obsoletes the previous movie by a mere 1 frame. This was done by a changed strategy in level 3. The unprecedentedly small margin of improvement is a result of how close to perfection this movie has become. This is most likely the final optimization of this game.

Clash at Demonhead is a complex game to say the least. There are over 40 levels in the game, and they are all connected to each other. In the network of levels the player must find 6 medallions and then rescue the kidnapped professor. This is no simple task. To make things even harder for a (tool-assisted) speedrunner, there are items available that greatly increase the player's speed, but in return cost money. This means that the route and strategy must be carefully planned.

This movie certainly does not lack speed or complexity. The movie is especially entertaining if you have played the game and know how hard it is.

This unusual boat game includes racing to the finish, preventing swimmers from being abducted, disposing bombs, killing sea monsters and shooting targets.

Whereas the previous movie's goals went for both speed and points, this movie's primary goal is speed, and only gets as many points as possible when it doesn't waste time. For example, targets and swimmers are deliberately missed to reduce score-counting at the end of levels. Altogether, this is 54 seconds faster than the previous version.

Stray shots are used to manipulate luck.

Crash 'n' the Boys: Street Challenge is part of the Kunio-kun series. Kunio is the protagonist of the series and the guardian of Nekketsu High School. His name has been localized in a variety of ways: "Crash" Cooney in this game, Mr. K in Renegade, Sam in Super Dodge Ball, and Alex in River City Ransom. In this game, representatives of the high schools compete in five no-holds-barred events.

In this run, GuanoBowl ends all the races early by knocking his opponent out. Rockets are purchased to make the hammer throw go farther and gum is used to help him hold his breath underwater. This run gets the extended ending by winning as Crash's school.

Cross Fire is a 2D Platformer game, developed and published by Kyugo Boueki, which was released in Japan in 1990. It has gameplay somewhat reminiscent of the Contra series, as you control Eric the soldier on his quest to fight evil all over the world.

The player begins armed with grenades and their trusty fists, but soon receives a sub-machine gun to help mow down their enemies. In this run however, MESHUGGAH ignores its intended purpose and instead uses the machine gun to hover, pass through walls, and even skip boss fights entirely. Assisted by the world's most determined helicopter pilot, the game is completed in just under 6 minutes.

This movie is ~11 seconds faster than the previous version by the same author, due to better control of the boy's acceleration.

This is an often-overlooked famous game.

Here we have a boy and a "blob" that likes all kinds of candies. When the blob eats these candies, it transforms into different tools the boy can use.

Note: The Japanese version of this game (Fushigina Blobby - Blobania no Kiki) has a different boy than this USA version, but otherwise the games are the same.

Again this is a new record time.

Deadly Towers is an annoying enough game to play, let alone make a TAS of, but the author manages a final time almost 3.5 minutes faster than the previous version. This improvement is mainly from buying orange scrolls, which are used to teleport from the top of each tower back down to the Holy Flame. Check the author's comments for more detailed information.

This game suffers from sprite overload very frequently.

Demon Sword is the kind of a game that Legend of Kage should have been.

It features a hero named Victar, who can easily jump on a tall tree (and sometimes over it, since he can't jump much lower) and is willing to defeat the evil demon that conquered the world. The key to defeating him is Victar's sword, that is conveniently broken into pieces that must be collected over the span of the game.

So watch his sword getting bigger and more powerful every few minutes, until its wielder finally reaches maturity decides it's big enough to save the world.

Select comments from the author:
Destiny of an Emperor was Capcom’s first RPG, released in 1989―90, and is based on Romance of the Three Kingdoms.

The battling style of this game can be described like Final Fantasy meets Pokémon; your team of warriors versus the opposing team of warriors, and any opponents freed from their posts can be later picked up in the wilds and converted to your side!

We recommend reading the rest of the author’s comments; it helps understanding the movie better.

In Bisqwit's opinion, the soundtrack of this game has a lot in common with Duck Tales.

The Little Mermaid is a simple game based on the movie of the same name. You control the mermaid Ariel as she swims through several stages and beats up bosses by tossing fish encapsulated in bubbles.

Normally, shooting bubbles stops Ariel, so a speedrun would try to avoid all the enemies. However, the author manages to fire shots with little movement delay thanks to a glitch involving turning around. Luck manipulation is also used to beat the bosses quite quickly. For more details, see the submission comments.

This run, AnS's first published movie here, improves the previous version by 51 seconds.

Donkey Kong is a classic game that has been challenged plenty of times at this site, by many players.

The author of this movie manipulates luck so that Mister Jumpman (who later became Mario) never needs to jump over, wait for, or otherwise evade deadly objects.

Note: Previously, every attempt at this game had been rejected ― either because the movies had been imperfect or just because the game is too simple.
(Isn't it? Even the video codec thinks that it can encode the movie without loss at a mere 251 kbit/s rate.)

But persistence prevailed (take no hint!); the competition between players entailed a movie's publishing. Soon thereafter, it was improved 4 more times. Here's the latest version, made by Phil.

The following other authors should be acknowledged for their contributions:

  • aaa2: the first person who submitted a Donkey Kong movie
  • CoolBumpty: submitted a much better movie
  • OmnipotentEntity: submitted the first movie that was published
  • Arc: submitted movies with improved tactics on levels 2 and 3
  • Bisqwit: for discovering how to avoid jumping in the last level

This movie improves the previous by 2.38 seconds due to luck manipulation.

A very important part of Nintendo's history is being presented here in the manner of our website — as a tool-assisted speedrun.

Donkey Kong Jr. (read Wikipedia article), among with Donkey Kong, were classic games that were played by millions of players on different consoles, including NES, Atari 2600 and Game and Watch.

Although one would not expect a movie of Donkey Kong Jr. to be interesting to watch, except in the retro sense, this movie is actually quite surprising. The vines are cleverly utilized to move the hero forward faster than any member of the Kong family before or after this game.

This is a 6 frame optimization of level 4 compared to the previous movie by the same authors. The rest of the levels are copied without changes.

Double Dare is closely based on an old Nickelodeon children's game show. To win, each team must answer a few of the trivia questions before time runs out. If the team answering thinks the other team might not know the answer, they can "dare" the other team to answer the question for double the points. However, the other team has the option to "double dare" them right back for a chance to win quadruple the points. The winning team gets to race through the Double Dare obstacle course, which features obstacles like the 1-Ton Human Hamster Wheel and a tank of Nickelodeon's iconic green slime.

Thanks to tools and the low difficulty of the questions, the author, goofydylan8, doesn't have to dare the other team even once to win.

In this movie, the author speeds through the game, beating up all the bad guys quickly and efficiently, making full use of each character — and killing them off when they are no longer useful. The characters' special abilities are abused to provide some unorthodox shortcuts.

This is the author's 2nd version and is an improvement of about 25 seconds over his previous movie.

Based loosely on the novel with a similar name, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde follows Dr. Jekyll as he walks to his wedding. For some reason though, everyone and everything is out to kill him, and if he gets attacked too many times, he will involuntarily transform into the monster Mr. Hyde. Once he becomes Hyde, he enters a mirror world where he must kill a number of demons to return to the real world and his normal self. Jekyll must advance further than his doppelgänger in each level in order to successfully reach his wedding.

By taking almost no damage in this TAS, the demon world is never seen. This is practically impossible to do without tool assistance, and even causes the game to exhibit glitches that speed up the game.

Dragon's Lair is much better known in its incarnations for other platforms as an FMV game with only slight amounts of control over the player's action. The NES version is more of a traditional platformer, but very smooth animation for the era and funny-looking characters inspired by the cartoon graphics of the other versions - this includes the final boss, who isn't seen very much in this run thanks to abuse of the game mechanics.

The Japanese version is used because the US version has considerably slower gameplay (almost twice as slow).

This is an improvement of around five seconds to the previous run from 2004 (making the old run one of the oldest on the site).

Reading the author's comments is encouraged.

This game has very smooth animation and the characters, including the last boss (which isn't much seen in this version of the movie), look somewhat funny, despite the theme of the game.

The USA version is almost twice as slow as the Japanese version.

This is the fifth published movie of Dragon Warrior, a seemingly complex, but ultimately, fairly simple NES RPG. The character completes his quest at Level 7. There are several things about this movie that might seem odd if one is not aware of them beforehand:

  • All unnecessary random encounters have been manipulated into not happening
  • The player dies several times in order to get transported back to the beginning
  • Action commands are often intentionally not entered as soon as possible to manipulate critical hits and such

Note: The first AVI release of this movie had wrong author name in it. The AVI was replaced a couple of hours later. Download statistics of 91 downloads was lost.

Dragon Warrior 3 is the last of the NES Dragon Warrior series to be TASed. This is primarily due to its unforgiving RNG. Unlike the others of the series, you can not manipulate critical hits, and other unlikely events whenever you want. However, the author does a great job despite this obstacle. He uses many unorthadox antics (like wasting turns using useless items) in order to force a more favor RNG. Heal spells are used in dungeons to reset the RNG in order to avoid encounters.

This is the JPN version of EarthBound Zero (also known as Mother (マザー) ). As the first version of the game, it has a number of useful glitches; this run abuses the way the game handles the "Bread crumbs" item to warp off the edge of reality and casually walk straight into the final boss's lair.

We also have a more normal run of the localized version, which doesn't include this glitch.

A rather simple, unique classic game.

The hero of this game is a spy/agent who raids buildings infested with men in black. He collects important documents from various apartments/closets (which, for the sake of simplicity, are colored indicatively), and then leaves by his car to the next raid.

After raiding the last building, he goes to raid the same buildings once again, ad infinitum.

Even a small game like this isn't free of bugs. The unsafe elevators of this game offer a few maneuvers that should not be attempted in real life.

Four levels were played.

This is an improvement of just over a minute over the previously published run.

The game features an inventory and equipment and a spells system, all of which were rare to see in NES games when this game came out.

This is the second version of the TAS, now six minutes faster than the first time.

The author has written comments describing all the planning and tricks that went into this movie, as well as some words of the game.

The movie is well played, no question, but the game itself is just not that much fun to watch being played, even if it is played perfectly. It's actually quite nice if you play it at 150% or even 200% speed.

Final Fantasy is one of those games which needs no introduction to most gamers. For the rest of you, the game follows four generic heroes who are trying to restore the four orbs which have been contaminated, and ultimately defeat Chaos.

Unfortunately only one of the warriors is actually a hero; the rest are sissies who died early on during the quests. Strange as this may sound, much time is saved by doing so since fewer commands need to be entered every time the player runs from a random encounter.

This version is almost 3 minutes faster than the previous movie, predominantly by the use of a computer program to assist in battle planning and by walking in no-encounter areas more often.

Some people have been requesting a TAS of this game, so here it is.

This version is 13 seconds faster than the previous version.

The Cobra Command threatens the world and the G.I. Joe team is needed to stop it!

G.I. Joe is a platformer with a few different weapons and vehicles which give the game some variety. Normally the game is pretty difficult due to secret routes that must be found to move forward but this aspect of the game is of course trivial in a TAS.

The movie is very entertaining because the game is action packed but still does not lag immensely.

GI Joe: The Atlantis Factor is an NES game released by Capcom USA around 1991. It is known to be a sequel to the original GI Joe NES game released a year before.

In this run, the author jumps a lot to achieve his goals, but that's because jumping makes the character move faster (from left to right and vice-versa) than just walking around.

Gauntlet is a Dungeons & Dragons simulator of sorts. You choose a class of Warrior, Valkyrie, Wizard or Elf to navigate the Gauntlet, collect treasure, slay wicked monsters, and save your beloved peasant hometown.

Walkthroughs for this game estimate a completion time of several hours when playing normally. Here, we see the game completed in only 12 minutes! Usually clues have to be collected to discover the password to the last dungeon, but this is selected at the game's beginning, so the clues are unnecessary in a TAS. There is also some collision detection abuse and lots of luck manipulation.

This updated version takes a better path, manipulates fights more, and abuses luck to get the password with shortest input time.

There is a huge amount of secrets and hidden paths to take in this game. The author recommends the FAQ by melvinwang on GameFAQs, and would like to thank fuwafuwa and TurboC for their help with this video.

Ghosts 'n Goblins is one of the more frequently updated games on TASvideos. As well as being 6 seconds faster than the previous version for the first half of the game, the author runs through the game twice to get the best ending. This accounts for the obsoleted run's dramatically shorter time.

This game is known as Makaimura in Japan.

Ghosts 'n Goblins (1986) begins with a normal scene: a half-naked knight is on a date in a graveyard with a princess. Suddenly, a demon appears and abducts the princess! The knight quickly suits up and makes rapid progres (sic) through the demon world in an attempt to rescue his royal girlfriend.

Arc is a veteran when it comes to making TASes of Ghosts 'n Goblins. This TAS is his ninth version, and it is 15.083 seconds faster than the previous version by Guanobowl. There is a vast amount of luck manipulation throughout the game, and there are multiple instances of the rare 'boost from enemy damage' trick.

Note: The previous movie ran through the game twice (after the first completion, the game does not show the real ending). This movie only runs through once, hence the much shorter overall time. The actual first-quest time difference is 15.083 seconds.

In Japanese, this game is known as 魔界村 (Makaimura or "Demon World Village").

This is a historic movie, submitted and obsoleted before the creation of the database-based (and wiki-based) site engine, before July 2004.

It was inserted to the database in a history revival project by Bisqwit in autumn 2006.


Selected comments from the author:
Hello, I tried to do a better run than Morimoto's Ghost's n Goblins after seeing his 2 major mistakes. I was a little bit slower overall as I did some more fighting than him, but at 10:30 into both videos we are at exactly the same point, which is where the cross is located (that he missed). However, there was a glitch on level 6 that caused me to take damage when nothing hit me (due to saving/loading I believe), but I finished out anyway, as it was the only 'mistake.' Anyway, I'll just attach the fmv in case you or Morimoto are interested.

Actually, I rejected this movie back then. I complained that this is too sloppy :) -- Bisqwit

Gremlins 2 done quick.

There is some insane twitching in this movie, which is more aesthetically pleasing
than the kangaroo-like jumping in the previous movie.

The main improvements consist of taking damage to save time, buying a weapon
power-up to reduce the time spent fighting bosses, along with some minor optimization which add up to 33 seconds of improvement.

Hammerin' Harry is a pretty simple platformer. Armed with a big hammer, you make your way through 5 levels, and the first 3 levels have bonus levels as well. At the end of each level there is a boss, and in some levels, there are also mini-bosses. In short, this game is a "normal" platformer, you won't have a hard time figuring out what's going on.

Here is a game that was made as a tribute to Ronnie James Dio and features him as the main character. Also, the name of the game is taken from Dio's band's Holy Diver album. Beside that, the ending contains additional references to other famous rock/metal figures.

Gameplay of this game is very similiar to Castlevania and some textures and the last boss are similar to Contra's. This game is also known to be nearly impossible to complete on a real console.

This is a 1 minute 36 second improvement over the previous movie due to the use of new tricks, weapon selection, and some new shortcuts.

Hydlide is an old and somewhat notorious game, mostly because it has very strange gameplay mechanics. For the first part of the game, walking consumes health, and the character must stop every now and then to regain it.

This is one of the few games (the only one?) where the level grinding sequences are actually entertaining, while the boss fights aren't. Hitting a boss decreases your own health as well as the boss's, after which there is much waiting for more health until you can hit him again.

There is also a submitted TAS that uses codes and removes the need to level grind or wait for health.

This movie completes the 32 mountains of Ice Climber as fast as the author could do. It catches the bird in every bonus stage, which almost doubles the movie length.

It's not a very exciting movie as whole, but due to how hard the character is control, the game is difficult to beat by normal playing. This fact might make the movie a bit more interesting.

This movie is 2.5 minutes faster than the previous version by the same author.

A boy named Satoshi suffers from a unique type of color blindness — he can only see in black and white. However, he also has a special ability to turn solid objects intangible and vice versa! But despite the amazing power he holds, Satoshi only wants to see like a normal boy. He seeks out an answer to his vision problem in a mystical manor called the Denine Devil Mansion, where he meets a scientist who offers him a game. If Satoshi wins, he might gain the ability to see in color. With that goal in mind, Satoshi accepts the offer and begins the Inversion game.

In each level, Satoshi must collect all of the keys to open the door to the next map. He can use his special ability to change the solidity of all objects in the level and reveal solutions to the game's many puzzles. Springs, moving platforms, vertical conveyor belts and levers can also be used to his advantage.

In this run, MESHUGGAH uses a few tricks and a lot of precise movement to help Satoshi beat the game in record time.

Inversion is a homebrew game created by Lucas "Dizzy9" Kur. The goal of the game is to collect all of the keys from each map to open a door leading to the next level. The game also features a more challenging level set called the "Extra World", accessible by entering a password.

Here, MESHUGGAH plays through the Extra World, using a few tricks and glitches as well as precision to beat this mode as quickly as possible.

We also have a run of Inversion's main mode.

The joyrider from last time heard news that the crazy dictator was back at it, so he brought along his friend for the ride. This time, however, they're not quite as considerate. Needless to say, there are plenty of explosions.

This movie improves the previous movie by over 45 seconds. Most of it comes from using two destructojeeps instead of just one, which saves a lot of time on bosses.

The author sums the game up best, in these selected comments:

I take my jeep on a joyride through six areas of some foreign country ruled by a crazy dictator. Some of my comrades in arms have been taken hostage, but since this an as-fast-as-possible TAS they're on their own (almost all of them).

The whole way I try not to destroy too much of the dictator's inept army, maybe it will make it easier to rebuild. However, many foot soldiers and tanks are in the wrong place at the wrong time.

If you keep this perspective in mind as you watch the movie, it can make this entertaining, well-done movie quite funny.

Jackie Chan is not a particularly impressive game, except for its music, which is relaxing to listen to.

Jackie Chan has been played a few times on this site. Three times by Arc, once by Dan and now once by Baxter. Every submission was faster than the preceding one, and this movie is not an exception.

This movie is 27.5 seconds faster than the previous version by Dan, and also takes 100% less hits than the previous version. In other words, no damage was taken.

We recommend reading the author's notes of this movie.

Joe and Mac is more or less your average caveman game. The heroes have to save the babes from dinosaurs and other historically accurate baddies by throwing stone wheels, bones, and fire at them.

This is first publication(?) in the Karnov food chain. It was created with famtasia with limited TASing tools. It has some rather unoptimized segments. It does beat the game without taking damage or dying.

This is a historic movie, submitted and obsoleted before the creation of the database-based (and wiki-based) site engine, before July 2004.

It was inserted to the database in a history revival project by Bisqwit in autumn 2006.

Karnov is one of those games whose fame defies my logicBisqwit
The game is similar to Ghosts'n Goblins. Both look a little badly programmed.

This is an improved version by another minute. We recommend reading the author's comments

There is a subtle allusion to Dance Dance Karnov on stage 6.

There is also a Game Boy sequel that is known as Kid Dracula.

In this game, you control a kiwi bird and rescue other kiwi birds trapped within the level. There are numerous warps, used to cut this game several minutes short of its expected completion time.

The ceiling and wall physics are very similar to Bubble Bobble, which means some of them can be passed through when you wouldn't expect it. In addition to this there is a glitch that sends you through the floor, saving a lot of time in the final stages.

With over 10 different runs attempted at this game across 6 authors, Kung Fu, aka Spartan X, is a simple platform game that has seen a lot of competition. This version uses a new random manipulation technique to beat the first level one time unit faster than Phil & Genisto's most recent record.

The completion times for each floor in this movie are: 1548, 1557, 1551, 1545, 1549.

The author would like to acknowledge the following authors who have spent time on this game:

  • Arc: The first to make a run of Kung Fu.
  • Lezard: Improvements in levels 2 and 5.
  • Michael Fried: Taking damage in level 4 time saving tactic.
  • Phil and Genisto: Boss 3 and 4 strats.

A game based on the show Samurai Pizza Cats. Five characters are available, but one (Batcat) is used extensively because his ability of flight leads to many shortcuts.

This game has a glitch enabling one-frame boss fights. To quote the author: If the team leader executes a level three ninpo attack on the first frame of combat, the boss is dead. Right there, dead, even the ones that don't show up immediately. As pulling this off requires your weapon to be maxed out, this saves anywhere from a great deal of time (first level) to a little bit (last level).

This movie was recorded with a bad ROM dump (b1); see the author's submission notes for more information regarding this.

From the author's submission:

You play as this family who must retrieve four crowns in order to obtain the dragon slayer (a sword) and then kill that evil dragon. Each family member has it's own area in this huge game and they can use different items.

Because of this vastness, the order in which each family member is used is crucial, to prevent any unnecessary backtracking. This run of the game involves no backtracking, lots of shortcuts, and a whole lot of speed scrolls with the help of a little luck manipulation.

Yay, another McKids movie! This movie is different from the other one in that it completes all the levels in the game, not just the required ones. The very hard special levels don't seem that impressive when save states are used, but the movie is very entertaining nevertheless.

Once you get past McDonald's blatant advertising and the fact that this game is about Ronald the clown, this game is actually quite good. The controls are a bit slippery but the level design more than makes up for it.

In this particular movie the author collects only the cards that are necessary to complete the game. If you want to see all the cards collected and the secret levels played, check the other movie of this game.

An improvement of a few seconds arises from more jumping in order to preserve momentum.

Magician is an adventure game featuring a hero simply named 'Paul'. Paul is a mage with a bottomless stomach, constantly a scratch away from starvation and death.

FatRatKnight gets around his insane hunger pains and cruises his way to the best ending possible with only one playthrough of the game primarily thanks to the UNKNOWN spell. Normally this has a high chance of killing Paul in some of the most gruesome or comical ways possible, but instead it is manipulated to heal him.

Maniac Mansion (1990) is a unique game that has weird humor and crazy music. It features cutscenes, multiple ways to win, useless items (like Chuck the Plant), and microwavable hamsters. In the storyline, Dave and two of his friends infiltrate the Edison family's mansion in order to rescue Dave's girlfriend. In order to save her, the teens must get access to the inner lab, deal with Purple Tentacle, shut down the ZOM-B-MATIC, and defeat the evil Meteor.

This movie—Arc's seventh TAS of Maniac Mansion—is about 36 seconds faster than the previous attempt. Will the limit ever be reached? Every time a new record is set, it's thought to be final, but then Arc discovers more ways to abuse the game.

The author's comments for the submission help to explain the multitude of tricks and glitches used.

Metal Gear had been one of last of the NES classics that had not been TASed. Well, not anymore ― here's one.

This game is infamous for its engrish, having comments such as "I FEEL ASLEEP!" and "UH - OH! THE TRUCK HAVE STARTED TO MOVE!"

This movie utilizes quite a wide variety of game glitches and collects the minimal set of items needed to complete the game. The author has written a detailed list of all the interesting bits of this movie.

A mysterious war, known as "The Havoc", has almost destroyed the human civilization. How it broke out is unknown, and no one even dare to study about it. The few survivors have to struggle for life, among whom our young hero, E, just makes his decision, to become a great Hunter.

Released by DATA EAST in Japan in 1991, Metal Max was one of the more "creative" role-playing games amongst Console RPGs, due to more freedom on the story. The game is set in a post-apocalyptic future, in which surviving people cluster from villages to ruins, while some Hunters from them fight monsters and outlaws in the "wild".

The author abused glitches in the game to complete it achieving the "good ending" in less than half an hour, being 59.91 seconds faster than its precessor, while normally it is supposed to take more than 10 hours. We recommend reading the author's comments for more details.
