Knuckles' Chaotix is a Sonic game that doesn't feature Sonic. The story follows Knuckles the Echidna as he tries to save his friends from Dr. Robotnik, one at a time, by tying an elastic band of "ring energy" between himself and each of them.

The gameplay is similar to that of earlier Sonic games, and after each stage, the next level is selected via roulette. These roulettes and the game's cutscenes comprise about 66% of the total movie length, so we recommend skipping through them.

In the site's first 32X publication, Upthorn uses a number of glitches (of which the most prominent is zipping through walls) to complete most of the levels tens of seconds faster than intended.

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.

Alyosha improves the previous publication by 0.92 seconds, thanks to a newly discovered trick. Please read the author's comments for more details.

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.

Using new tricks, CoolKirby manages to drag the phone components from the pits of doom 0.15 faster. For details, read the author's commentary.

River Raid is an early vertical shooter where you fly a plane down a river and fire missiles to blow up helicopters, jets, ships and bridges.

As you can imagine, a tool-assisted speedrun turns this regular raid into an unstoppable barrage of destruction.

This movie obsoletes the previous one due to Lord Tom getting 1 million points instead of 100,000, thus reaching the true end of the game.

This run was performed by a bot coded by the author, based on a Java port of the game he wrote himself. For more on the extensive work put into this TAS, see the author's comments.

Death Star Battle is loosely based on the events of the film Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. Your task is to destroy the Death Star before its construction is finished. You start the task outside the shield perimeter of the Death Star, where you have to combat different imperial vessels and avoid the death ray while waiting for an opportunity to slip through one of the random openings in the energy shield. After reaching the Death Star, you must reduce its structure up to the point where you can hit the core. In the following destruction of the station, you must avoid collision with the Death Star's debris.

It was decided that only the first round of the game contains meaningful content, so in this TAS, jlun2 uses luck manipulation and a precise shooting angle to finish it in less than 9 seconds. It is the second shortest movie on this site, with CD-Man beating it by around five seconds.

To slow Superman's progress, Kryptonite has been released by Luthor. If hit by Kryptonite, Superman loses his abilities to capture criminals and fly. To regain them, he must find and kiss Lois Lane.

Ninja Golf is an Atari 7800 video game which combines scrolling beat 'em up with golf simulation gameplay. Released in 1990, it later gained some renown for its outlandish subject matter and unique blend of gameplay styles.

The player starts each hole by aiming his ball and shooting it toward the green. He then runs toward the ball, in traditional sidescroller fashion, fighting various enemies encountered along the way. These enemies include other ninjas, gophers, birds, giant mutant frogs, sharks and more.

The enemies faced depends on the environment the ninja golfer is currently in. Sharks are encountered in water hazards and snakes in the sand traps. Ninjas are encountered in all the environments, including underwater.

In this run, adelikat sports, fights, and runs his way through multiple ninjas, sharks, and even dragons to complete possibly the strangest nine holes of golf.

In Dottori Kun, you control a race car on a five lane track, and your goal is to collect all of the dots in order to advance to the next level, very similar to the Atari 2600 game Dodge 'Em, with the major difference being the ability to change directions.

- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Fighting
Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters is the direct sequel to Mega Man: The Power Battle. Like its predecessor, this arcade-only game does away with the levels of the classic Mega Man games and instead pits you against Robot Master after Robot Master. The game features four characters and three game modes to choose from, with different Robot Masters to fight in each mode.

For this run, Marx runs the "Search for Wily!" mode with 2 players at once, using both Mega Man and Proto Man to defeat each robot faster than just 1 player could. Though the battles are speedy, the brief waiting periods after each match allow some time for entertainment.

Yippie-ki-yay!

In Spinmaster, known in Japan as Miracle Adventure (ミラクルアドベンチャー), you play as Johnny and Tom, two treasure seekers. They have to save Johnny's girlfriend and gather map pieces in order to find the biggest treasure in the world! Along the way, they must fight past lots of quirky henchmen, large bosses, and more, all accompanied by cartoony graphics and stereotypical cowboy voice clips.

In this game, Johnny and Tom can use several different types of weapons, such as the elements of ice, fire, and thunder. They can collect a limited number of super attacks, denoted by the letter "B" under their health bars, to hurt everything on the screen and damage bosses heavily. Also, health does not refill between levels.

If you want to see another Arcade game involving two treasure hunters fighting lots of enemies, be sure to check out x2poet's run of Top Hunter: Roddy & Cathy.

- Aims for maximum score
- Genre: Platform
C64anabalt is an official conversion of Canabalt for the Commodore 64 (in cartridge form). Canabalt is the game that defined the endless runner genre. The game controls consist of a single jump button to alter the height of the player's suit-clad character, who runs across a war-torn city at an ever increasing pace.

At the incredible speeds reached in this TAS, the building generator can bug out and fail to create sections of buildings. Author dwangoAC had to carefully avoid these bugs in order to successfully run the maximum distance.

There are two different versions of this port. This movie uses the Encore build, which includes a faithful port of the original soundtrack to the C64's SID sound chip.

Avoid the Noid is a platform computer game for the Commodore 64 and MS-DOS, written in 1989 to promote Domino's Pizza. It was modeled after the company's ad campaign during the late 1980s. The ads featured a "noid" that destroyed pizzas and must be avoided.

The protagonist must traverse a 30-story building and deliver the pizza within 30 minutes. Colorful rabbits armed with booby traps, phone bombs, rocket launchers and bomber planes that drop water balloons seek to prevent the delivery.

Partners in crime turska & Ilari deliver the pizza in a record-breaking 03:33.52, or 7:42.00 according to the ingame clock. For details on how they did it, read the authors' commentary.

Castle Adventure is a game made in 1984 about a cloverleaf person trapped in a deserted castle with monsters roaming around. You have to find a way to escape the castle by searching for clues.

You move around with the arrow keys. If you manage to find a weapon, you can attack enemies by simply moving into them. Similarily, you can pick up objects on the ground by moving into them. You can also type in commands such as "LOOK DESK", "TAKE KEY", "READ BOOK", and "DROP FLASK". There are treasures to be found and monsters to be slain in order to increase your score.

In this TAS, Ilari & Truncated clear the game in a blindingly fast 19.45 seconds utilizing subframe optimization and rapid keyboard-twisting input. For details, read the authors' comments.

The run is so fast that the emulator can't draw all of the game's video output, so the downloadable encodes are made with a hacked version of the emulator that draws all of them.

This is a Mega Man game that was not developed by Capcom, but rather by Stephen Rozner of Hi-Tech Expressions, who did all the design, programming, graphics and sound. The game is infamous for its mediocre quality.

In this run, DarkKobold uses precise movements and the absence of boss invulnerability periods to complete the game in under two and a half minutes.


This game runs too fast on anything more modern than a low-end 386 or so. As such, the encode is technically correct. For an encode that is slowed down to the original 30 fps, see this YouTube video.

Combining the Nintendo DS's touch screen capabilities with a classic puzzle game and adding in a touch of the tool-assisted yields... a tool-assisted run of a classic puzzle game, joining the ranks of several other quirky movies similar in character. While tool-assistance may on the surface seem trivial in this case, a decidedly non-trivial amount of luck manipulation was used to create a cube solvable in the fewest possible moves. Further, the game only counts moves in quarter turns, making the number of moves used even more impressive.

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

Author nitrogenesis improves the previous run with increased precision when burning the rope.

- Genre: Adventure

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.

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.

Also note that this movie is about 42 seconds longer than the previous movie. This is due to the inaccurate (shorter) FDS load times emulated by famtasia.

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 by Kiske and mtvf1 completes the game impossibly quickly by forcing opponents to yield, allowing instant wins in the campaign missions. The author also improves the previous run by 12.80 seconds through new tricks and better use of the "force surrender" glitch.

Densetsu no Stafy, or The Legendary Starfy, is a platform game developed by TOSE and published by Nintendo. The story is that a cute little star named Starfy accidentally releases a powerful demon from a magic jar. The demon, Ogura, then takes over Starfy's home in the cloud-kingdom of Pufftop and causes a storm which knocks Starfy into the water below. With the help of some new water-abilities and new friends, Starfy journeys to return to Pufftop and seal Ogura away once again.

The author, jlun2, abuses a glitch that allows him to start playing from the middle of the attract mode demo and challenge the final boss much earlier than he's supposed to. In doing so, he improves his previous attempt by 4.71 seconds through better optimization.

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.

In the second game, Lan and Mega Man are fighting a terrorist organization called Gospel, but this TAS divulges little of the plot. The author, mtvf1, races through the game, avoiding unnecessary random battles and precisely manipulating battle chip winnings and order to quickly overcome all foes. He also improves his previous movie by 2:05.93 minutes.

We also have a run for the first game in the series.

You probably know Nancy Drew. She's a popular fictional character who has a knack for solving (and attracting) all sorts of mysteries. Basically a Mary Sue, being rich, handsome, immensely talented and leading an exciting life.

As the game begins, she comes to a hotel owned by her friend's friend where accidents have been happening, and rumors even say that it's a ghost behind all the mayhem, perhaps exacting some sort of revenge from beyond the grave. But eventually we find out the problem is a much simpler and common one instead, human greed, and that there's really nothing supernatural going on in the hotel, with the exception of Nancy Drew herself, who knows solutions to puzzles without ever finding them and who causes other strange stuff to happen as well.

Of course, all those little accomplishments mean a lot of high-fives are in order! This rapid high-fiving and switching partners happens to cause a speed glitch that allows jlun2 to skip large parts of rooms.

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 Action-RPGs. This game, like its prequel, allows the player to pick a character type. In this run, the character chosen was a ninja, for his ability to use speed magic.

The author uses a glitch to dupe power wines and bombs, the former massively increasing his attack strength, and the latter making the run look more like Bomberman than a 'Shining' game!

This run is 17:58.75 faster than his previous Shining Soul II publication due to some very impressive manipulation to slaughter bosses in mere seconds. It is recommended that you read the authors comments for more information about the run and the game.


There is also a humorous commentary by the author and a couple of guests.

Sonic Battle is a pseudo-fighting game, akin to Super Smash Bros. from Nintendo. Rather than being 3D side-scrolling, this game employs a 3D isometric view – not a static, sprite-based field though, it is comprised of actual texture-mapped polygons. The character sprites are 2D though, and while you think it wouldn't work – it does.

dekutony doesn't even break a sweat and completes Challenge Mode as Shadow in record time.

Tekken Advance is a fighting game in the Tekken series. While it is not considered canon to the Tekken storyline, it follows the events of Tekken 3 and includes most of the characters. It also features new stun mechanics.

This run, done using the hardest difficulty and one round per opponent, uses careful luck manipulation and Paul's powerful Burning Fist to take out everyone as fast as possible. Input is ended early to show the founder of the King of Iron Fist tournament unable to hit an opponent who isn't even fighting back.

The author, CoolKirby, races Frogger madly through the levels and rescues all of the babies in just under 10 minutes.

In the first Harry Potter game for the Game Boy Color, the story of Harry's first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is told in the form of a traditional role-playing game.

Playing as Harry, one advances through the plot of the book and the movie by fulfilling quests, battling monsters and gaining experience and levels.

Combat is turn-based, with Harry being able to use a variety of spells against various critters and other enemies. In addition, card combinations of Famous Witches and Wizards Collector's Cards can be used to produce powerful magical effects. These cards can be found all over the freely explorable Hogwarts. Potions that refill stamina and magic points can be found, bought or mixed by Harry himself, but only with the right ingredients.

As in other Potter games, Harry also competes for house points for Gryffindor, hoping to win the House Cup in the end.

The game features several mini-games that, once found in the main game, can also be accessed from the main menu.


Note: The original encodes contain footage that deserves an epilepsy warning for it's flickering in the latter part of the run. So we provide a cleaned up version of the run in the alternate encodes.

Keitai Denjū Telefang (携帯電獣テレファング) is a series of video games produced by Smilesoft and published by Natsume. 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 symbolize the various beasts involved.

This movie improves its predecessor by more than a half of a minute. Significant glitching is used; you will likely have to read the authors' comments to understand what's going on.

- Genre: Adventure
Set before the events of the first two NES games, the player gets to play as Christopher Belmont, one of Simon's ancestors.

Unlike most Castlevania games, there are no sub-weapons, and the player loses whip upgrades upon damage. Additionally, the Castlevania Game Boy games, unlike their NES counterparts, have ropes and moving spike walls instead of stairs.

This game, being one of the first to come out for the Game Boy, was programmed poorly, exhibiting lots of lag, and also suffers from poor jump controls. Seizing upon that, the level designers took it upon themselves to create fake difficulty by requiring pixel perfect jumps throughout.

In this movie, arukAdo eliminates lag by killing enemies as they appear on screen, destroying candles, collecting coins, and ducking when possible. In addition to that, luck is manipulated via pausing to prevent certain enemies from appearing or to force bosses to enter attack range sooner.

Note: The Konami Collection version was used instead of the original, as it lags a bit less, and is also fully colored.

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 388 frames over the second 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.

This movie is 16.43 seconds faster than the predecessor movie.

When enough slaves in a level have been saved, you go on to the next level to do it all again.

Pocket Bomberman is unlike the previous Bomberman games in that it's a sidescrolling platformer instead of a grid-like puzzle game. It's also one of the few games that allows Bomberman to jump.

"Jump Game" is the second of the game's two modes. The object of this minigame is to get to the goal at the top of each of the long vertical levels, defeating a boss several times in order to progress.

However, in this run, Robert_Ordis uses a glitch allowing him to clip through walls to skip several boss fights and finish all three stages in less than 2 minutes.


The Nicovideo stream features a cool heads-up display, including RAM information, input view, and even a level map.

RoboCop for the GBC is a top-down shooter made by Mirage Interactive and Titus. The game itself consists of large maze levels and the slow movement pace of RoboCop. The difficulty in this game can be very obnoxious.

In this run, the author makes usage of a simple L+R glitch which doubles RoboCop's speed without affecting camera speed if three directions at once are pressed. In addition to this, it even allows him to warp to the next screen immediately when he catches up to the edge of the camera view while performing this glitch, and if there is an adjacent room to the direction where he's going. This allows him to get through most troublesome walls. The author provides detailed comments which help understanding what is going on.

Rockman DX3, also known as Zook Hero 2, is an an unlicensed pirate game developed by Vast Fame that rips gameplay off the Rockman X series. Just like Rockman X, there are eight stages, and six of them contain a boss who gives you his weapon upon defeat. The protagonist, Zook, also has abilities nearly identical to those of X. Despite these similarities, the code and graphics appear to be completely original and the music is actually decent.

The author, Mothrayas, plays the most popular and widely available release, which happened to be released with the final boss stage already unlocked, leading to the incredibly short completion time.

Their investigation leads them to an old spooky house, Jekyll Mansion. Once inside, they search the rooms to gather clues to reveal the identity of the jewel thief. Gameplay consists of positioning characters close to objects in such a way that a menu at the bottom of the screen lights up. The player can then choose the correct action (examine, search, use, take) from the menu. There is also plenty of dialogue involved. To solve puzzles, the player switches between characters and uses each person's special abilities.

- Genre: Platform
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, jlun2 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. jlun2 was able to improve upon the previous publication by 44.53 seconds by optimizing the menuing, and the routing of the various levels. More information can be found in the submission text.

This is the first handheld version of Tony Hawk's popular skateboarding game. It bears little resemblance to the original Playstation version. It is actually composed of two different events, a half pipe and a race mode.

Half pipe mode is viewed from a side perspective, kind of like the classic Skate or Die game. You perform tricks to achieve a high score. Race mode is viewed from a top-down perspective, where you goal is to perform tricks and get to the end quickly.

Wendy: Every Witch Way is a fun little platformer for the Game Boy Color. The story is that Wendy the Good Little Witch accidentally releases the Chaos Emeralds from a treasure chest after clipping through the wall to her attic. The restless emeralds then proceed to knock down a floating castle that was blocking their view of the moon, and Wendy must flip her way through the castle to get the emeralds back.

This run abuses the game's gravity mechanic heavily, essentially making it a cuter version of Metal Storm.

In the third X-Men game on the Game Boy Color (after X-Men: Mutant Academy and Mutant Wars), Lady Deathstrike and her fellow mutants have begun building a weapon that can melt the adamantium skeleton that protects Wolverine. The most famous of the X-Men must now fight through 16 levels to stop her from finishing this weapon.

Besides his main attack, hack-and-slashing with his trademark claws, Wolverine can fly into a rage when the attack button is rapidly pressed. While he is hard to control in this state, his attack range increases, enabling him to get through tougher sections of the game without taking as much damage.

In this run, Mothrayas utilizes some physics tricks and precise movement to finish the game in around 11 and a half minutes.

After Burst for Game Boy was released Japan-exclusively by NCS in 1990. Conceptually just a simple 2D shooter it features three modes (normal, 1P VS, 2P VS) of which this run plays the 1P VS mode. To reach this mode's ending, 15 (instead of 30 in normal mode) single-screen stages have to be cleared (all of which are different from the ones in normal mode).

The game features a ballistic bullet mechanic where you can charge each shot to have a higher exit velocity. Since only one player bullet can be visible at a time, the damage that can be done in any given timespan is severely limited, necessitating hitting multiple targets in one shot for best efficiency.

Quite strikingly, this game is plagued by extreme lag, slowing in-game time down significantly and contributing to about 80% runtime of the entire movie (about 4 lag frames per normal frame).

Buster Brothers, also known as Pang, is a well-known series of puzzle games. This is the first release of the series, ported to the Game Boy. The Author decided to pick the GB version for TASing because the levels are simpler, which makes the run shorter and easier to optimize.

The plot is rather simple. Some "bubbles" are attacking the Earth and you must travel across the world busting them. The game has 50 stages divided into 17 locations: Mt. Fuji, Mt. Keirin, Emerald Temple, Australia, Taj Mahal, Leningrad, Paris, London, Barcelona, Athens, Egypt, Kenya, New York, Maya, Antartica and Easter Island. It offers the option to start from Leningrad and thus skip 18 levels. However, p4wn3r ignored this and went through all the levels to show the entire game.

Catrap is a platform/puzzle game where a boy and girl work through a series of 100 puzzles. This breaks a curse and returns them to human form. Completing each level involves climbing ladders and moving blocks so that each enemy can be defeated. A rewind function is present for trail+error attempts to get to the solutions. But that feature isn't needed here.

This run makes clever use of the switch mechanics. Switch can't be used immediately after defeating an enemy, so other actions are performed while the enemy falls off the screen. Attacking from the ladder is slightly faster, the author uses this and other similar tricks to help save time.

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, improving the previous movie by ~43 seconds.

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.

This movie is nearly 6 minutes faster than Alter's previous movie due to better precision, faster Metroid fights, and missile planning.

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

This game is one of many ports of an arcade game (there is also a movie of a different version of the game here). In it, an evil force has corrupted all ninjas except for you, and you must defeat the evil force. You have four different weapons, and you can also obtain shadow clones which work similarly to the options from Gradius or the clones from Ninja Gaiden 2.

Sit back and enjoy the fast-paced ninja action and the weapon variety.

- Heavy luck manipulation
- Genre: Action
- Genre: Adventure
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.

While this run appears to be slower than the previously published movie due to more accurate emulation, it is in fact faster by 0.36 seconds if emulation differences are not accounted for.

Skate or Die - Bad 'N Rad is the only game in the Skate or Die series to be developed by Konami instead of EA. In this game, our unnamed skateboarder shreds through a mix of sidescrolling and top-down levels. There are enemies and bosses after him, who he can attack by jumping in the air and bashing them with his skateboard.

JXQ proves he's both bad and rad as he rolls straight through the obstacles, precisely avoiding damage and making the game look easy.


Note: The encode is missing credits because the game crashes mid-credits.

Although it shares the same name, this game greatly differs from the NES version and other platforms. You play as crash dummy Slick, trying to earn money. The better you do, the more money you earn. If you don't earn enough, you must redo the level. The levels vary with events like diving off a building as a movie stunt, driving a car to test air-bags, skiing down a mountain, etc. Up to two players can play, alternating.

Interestingly, the same game was released in various forms, with four editions released in separate regions: We're Back in the USA, Baby T-Rex in Europe, Agro Saur in Australia, and Bamse in Sweden. The other versions are almost identical except for the graphics; likely they were rushed out to capitalize on popular licenses in different regions.

In this particular version adapted from an animated movie by Steven Spielberg, the player controls Rex (not related to Radical Rex) who must save his three dinosaur friends, Woog, Dweeb and Elsa, from Prof. Screweyes. It's up to Rex to storm the professor's castle and save his imprisoned friends.

Note: In order for this run 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.

Back to the Future III is a collection of four arcade games. Marty McFly and Doc Brown have traveled back through time to the year 1885 – and they're soon deep in trouble when they face "Mad Dog" Tannen's gang and have to find a way to return to the present. This game takes four scenes from the Hollywood movie Back to the Future III and turns them into arcade sequences: Buckboard Chase, Shooting Gallery, Pie Throwing, and The Train.

Note that the Genesis version is normally this dark due to a programming error in the game, and not an emulation bug.

Author Kiske runs through this short game using superhuman movements and a pause trick to manipulate luck.

This run plays through the "Baby Moses" mode, of how his mother "got a papyrus basket for him ... and placed the child in it and put it ... along the bank of the Nile". This apparently entails avoiding a horde of enemies in the process.

Thus, before Moses can let his people go, Aglar goes as fast as possible by taking a page from the wrong Bible book and walking on water (wouldn't that have made crossing the Red Sea just a little bit easier?) as well as directly through many of the enemies and obstacles preventing one from reaching the right edge of the level.

- 2 Players
- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Action
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 authors steal as many treasures as they can and avoid the police by controlling the 2 players... at the same time!

This is an improvement of 9.91 seconds over the previous movie, thanks to better optimisation.

Here's another run-of-the-mill platformer, released concurrently for the Amiga and Genesis/Mega Drive. Bubba, a delivery man for the local zoo, is abducted one day by aliens; accompanied by the appropriately-named sentient stick Stix they must try to find a way back home. As this run demonstrates, this takes a lot less time than you might expect.

Cadash isn't the most straightforward of platformers, seeing how you can actually gain levels and buy items in this one. There are also mandatory items to fetch and quests to complete in order to advance.

This is actually nifboy's third movie of Cadash, and the first one considered worth publishing. This means that the author hasn't just thrown something together, but rather planned and optimized everything carefully.

Note that the author dies twice in the movie. Both deaths were of course intentional and saved time. For details about these deaths as well as things that were skipped, see the submission text.

There is a bonus stage after each battle where the player must qualify for the next battle. The player has to purchase repairs, weapons and ammunition with the credits that are earned for destroying the enemy body parts and completing the rounds quickly.

In this run, Trask takes out the enemies mostly through well placed missiles and the more expensive homing missiles. At one point a missile is used to punch through a wall to open up a path for more missiles.

This version of Duke Nukem 3D was released exclusively in Brazil. The gameplay is fundamentally the same and has the player blasting invading aliens from Duke's point of view. It consists of nine levels based on the PC's Lunar Apocalypse episode and a range of enemies and weapons from the original game. The difficulty has been raised significantly, and the framerate is noticeably reduced. The port also makes heavy use of scanlines and a smaller window size to reduce the overall render load.

Dimon12321 follows the fastest path through each of the maps, and moves extra quickly by running and strafing at the same time.

Fantasia is the title of a side-scrolling video game developed by Infogrames and produced by Sega for its own Mega Drive/Genesis system. The game was loosely based on the film of the same name.

In the game, the player controls Mickey Mouse as the Sorcerer's Apprentice through various side-scrolling levels in an attempt to collect musical notes that somehow went missing whilst he was asleep. The game's four levels were based on amalgamations of the segments of Fantasia, each one around the elements: water (The Sorcerer's Apprentice, Dance of the Reed Flutes and Arabian Dance), earth (The Rite of Spring), air (Russian Dance, Pastoral Symphony and Dance of the Hours) and fire (Night on Bald Mountain, Toccata and Fugue in D Minor). The player defeats various enemies by jumping on them or by collecting magical bubbles that could be used to shoot at enemies as projectiles. In each level, the player collects a certain number of hidden magical notes in order for the song to play once again.

In this run, maTO makes his way through the game as fast as possible.

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 third submission of 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, as you get a non-standard game over instead of the ending.

He improves the previous run by 4:42.29, thanks to new glitch discoveries and better optimisation in many places. Please read the author's comments for more details.

Madou Monogatari (魔導物語) is an RPG best described as 'strange'. The game has overly cute design and the battles are probably a little different than you would expect. The story revolves around a girl who is on a quest to pass her final exam in a magic school.

A defining moment is one of the cutscenes, where a slime is encountered and suddenly defeated by a strange girl bursting through a brick wall. Then, an equally strange armored knight drops in from the ceiling and the two of them proceed to ignore you and chase each other away.

The fast completion time is achieved mostly by using a random-effect spell, which has a small chance of producing a devastating elephant stomp (yeah, really). Naturally, in a TAS, the "small chance" gets a new meaning.

You can see this movie played back on an actual Genesis here!

This run takes care of money problems by finding a nameless, glitched party member and taking all his stuff. Teleportation is used in some places it normally can't be by resting to reset the forbidden flag. Walking backwards is employed when it reduces screen draw time. Temple blessings are used rather than a cleric, and items are used instead of a sorcerer.

- Heavy glitch abuse
- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Racing
Outrun is a racing game where the player is presented with forks in the road. The left fork leads to an easier stage and the right fork leads to something more challenging. The camera travels along with the car rather than just presenting a birds eye view. Its designer, Yu Suzuki, describes it as a driving game rather than a racing game.

In this run weatherton uses a couple of tricks to speed things up. By quickly switching between high and low gear driving-off road is possible without slowing down. While using this trick the car stays a fixed distance from the road, making impossibly tight turns possible. The position, type and number of cars and the position of obstacles can be manipulated by horizontal position and the frame they load on. Proper timing of the accelerator allows for a turbo start. And revving a few frames before that adds a little bit more.

- Major skip glitch

- Genre: RPG
Phantasy Star II, released in 1989, introduces us to the anti-utopian world of Mota, now dominated by the Mother Brain computer. Rolf, a government agent, is assigned the task of finding out why Mother Brain is malfunctioning, and yet his role in the destiny of Algo is far, far greater than anyone could imagine. Anyone, save one lone Esper. As the genetic construct Nei, the soldier Rudo, and others join him, can he topple the tyranny of Mother Brain and free Algo from an unholy evil?

Rolf and his friends, tired of all the violence they've seen, decide to take a pacifist route to save the Algol system with zero bloodshed. This run improves the old run by about 4 minutes through new glitches, including one that abuses the customized names of the characters to obtain some important items very early on. For more details, read the author's comments.

- Heavy luck manipulation
- Genre: RPG
Phantasy Star III is often considered to be the black sheep of the series, but is still a unique RPG on its own, featuring 3 generations and multiple paths through the game. However, this run breaks the plot halfway through by glitching past the second generation quickly.

Like in other RPG runs, luck has been manipulated for many things. Although random encounters can't be completely avoided, no damage is ever taken except from bosses, and most of the leveling is done in a final rush.

Read the author's comments for more details on luck manipulation and the path taken through the game.

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.

This run does plenty of hopping around in order for Pinocchio to attempt to save his father in a brisk 16:24 minutes.

This run is longer than the one it obsoletes due to using the hardest difficulty, which leads to having to beat additional levels.

Pocket Monster II is an unlicensed game made by DVS Electronic Co. for the Sega Genesis. It stars Pikachu as he fights other Pocket Monsters, or Pokémon, across four stages using Poké Balls and melee attacks.

Rolo to the Rescue is a platformer for the Genesis, starring an agile elephant, Rolo. Gameplay involves freeing animals from cages. Switching to the saved animals allows for different movement modes, which adds some puzzle elements. The overworld is assembled by getting pieces from clearing stages.

By herself, Rolo can only take one hit, but the animals she frees will take a hit then leave the group. Rolo is a perfectionist, anything less than 100% gets the bad ending, which is quite dark for a game that seems aimed at kids.

Shadow of the Beast is a somewhat inferior port of the Amiga hit released in 1989. The North American release was additionally criticized for sloppy conversion that made the game run 16.7% faster than intended and, as a result, sharply increased its difficulty.

Obviously it was no problem for maTO, who plunged through the game with impressive health management in just under 12 minutes.

With some glitch abuse, a helping of taking damage, and very little difficulty, the author of this run accomplishes this in less than seven minutes (just over half the time of the original game).

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 is an improvement of 15 minutes and 13 seconds over the previous movie, due to a variety of improvements, and in spite of playing on "Super" difficulty, which is functionally the highest difficulty level.

In this tool-assisted speedrun, very few cars are skitched and the other racers are ignored.

Starflight puts the player into the captains seat and sets them free on a galaxy of 270 stars and 800 planets. This is an early example of a sand box game which leaves the player free to explore for minerals, locate habitable planets, upgrade the ship and crew, and interact with aliens. The eventual goal becomes stopping unusual solar flares in the region.

In this run the clairvoyant space pilot already knows the cause of the flares and gets straight to business. He buys a better engine and pumps a ton of fuel into his ship called "A". The initial resources are barely enough to reach the key destinations. The pilot hero and his multi-talented single crew member sidekick also called "A" work together to obtain the Black Egg and the Crystal Orb as quickly as possible. All is done with a minimalistic route. All pieces seem to fit together seamlessly. The ship called "A" reaches the Crystal Planet with only a drop of fuel left, so it is a bit strange that the heroes manage to escape the effects of the Star Wars-esque planet-scale explosion. Most of all, this is a lesson in ecological driving as the fuel would have ran out, if the final destination had been even a few pixels further.

The game world is gigantic and normally requires hours of adventuring around to collect five Golden Statues to access a hidden city to find a magical flower, which allows the brothers to walk across the lava protecting the Necromancer and defeat him.

However, Aqfaq just skips all of this, using health potions and incredibly precise luck manipulation to walk straight across the lava and recover the Talisman in a little over 20 minutes.

In this movie, the protagonist wizard uses various unorthodox methods for completing the game as fast as possible. He dies four times in the process, but that does not slow him down at all. In fact, dying is one of the tricks that makes this movie 1.5 minutes faster than its predecessor.

- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Platform
This game is considered to be extremely hard, especially for a speedrun. One hit equals death, and your character moves very slowly. Some quotes about this game:
Spacecow: Knowing how easy it is to die in this game, you certainly do cheat death an awful lot.
Frenom: I got the original of this game and I cant even make it to the next level without dying on Easiest.
daniayaw: This game is _impossible_ to beat without savestates..

The only things keeping Toki alive during this movie are the buggy hit detection and about two metric tonnes of luck.

- Heavy glitch abuse
- Genre: RPG
Originally known as Minato no Traysia (港のトレイジア) in Japan, this turn-based RPG adventure doesn’t involve the typical ‘save the world’ or ‘vanquish the ultimate evil’ plotline. Not this time around. It’s actually themed around a young man’s sweetheart named Traysia, as he sets out from his hometown to fulfill his dream of exploring the world (vanquishing evil is involved, however).

ars4326’s run showcases two noteworthy features in this TAS. Not a single random encounter is fought, and all boss battles are blitzed through by abusing a party member’s rapid attack animation. At times, the game may remind you of a pseudo-shooter instead of a traditional RPG.

World of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck is a platformer where a player controls either Mickey or Donald, or two players can use them together co-operatively. In the game Mickey and Donald are magicians who can turn enemies into harmless objects with the flourish of their capes. Defeating bosses unlocks new spells, like a flying carpet and underwater breathing.

In this run Mitjitsu uses both characters at once. A number of jumping glitches are possible. Frame perfect jumps off springs can get to triple normal height. At the end of the cape flourish animation the game briefly assumes the player is on the ground. This can't be used to jump, but the other character can jump off their head.

Miles "Tails" Prower, better known as Sonic the Hedgehog's sidekick, is afraid of seeing a world filled with the witch's rails and decides to stop her on his own.

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

In this first-published MSX TAS, Rambo decides to skip rescuing the VIP and just make a leeway to the helicopter himself.

Reality is not all it seems, with spiders being as difficult to kill with a knife as a human, and foodlike substances adopting an alternate name.

Scion was an arcade game that was ported to the MSX by Sony in 1985. It features gameplay unusual for a shooter. You don't even need to gun down the enemy ships. Instead, you stay on one screen that loops continuously until all ground targets have been destroyed. Three screens of that and it's on to the next stage.

However, since every stage is identical, Quibus just plays through stage 1 as fast as possible.

Duke Nukem 64 (1997) is a classic PC shooter ported to Nintendo 64 — unfortunately, in a heavily censored state, and without much concern for the game's performance.

As such, the movie is played on the easiest level in an attempt to reduce the framerate drop issues arising from big amounts of enemies shooting at Duke. However, the sheer speed the player is blasting through levels will likely confuse you regardless — we recommend reading the author's comments to understand all the tricks he used.

The sequel to Fighters Destiny (the title now without the s in 'Fighters') has you again taking your created fighter up the ranks by competing in a number of challenging 1 on 1 battles.

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. 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.

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 TASeditor improves the previous run by 0.65 second with better optimization. He also adds in some entertainment and close calls with the wires, much to the shock of the in-game announcer.

The game features two characters—the human Orin and his falcon Cutrus—in either 1- or 2-player mode. Cutrus can attack enemies, hit switches, collect items, and generally do all sorts of useful things.

The game allows the player to recover the eight jewels in any order. The player can save time in the boss fights by choosing the optimal sequence.

There is also a published run of the unreleased sequel, Cheetahmen II.

Adventures of Lolo (1989) was the first game of the Eggerland series that received a Western release. Interestingly, the series was developed by HAL Laboratory, who also created the Kirby series, 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 of the hearts in every stage and then get the ball from the chest to open the door to the next room. Though it may seem simplistic, it remains 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 10.16 seconds faster than the previous with the help of Zugzwang. Eleven rooms have been improved.


For the weak-spirited who aren't willing to watch the run all over again only for the improved rooms, the authors have inserted an easter egg into the input file! If you run the same .fm2 on the NES game Defenders of the Crown, it will complete it as well in just 3 minutes and 38 seconds.

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

Instead of just capturing the opponent's piece like a wimp, upon confrontation, the two pieces are placed in a "combat arena" in which they must fight to the death.
