Dragon Ball: Advanced Adventure (ドラゴンボール アドバンス アドベンチャー) is mainly a platformer/fighting game with some one-on-one fights with more important characters thrown in.

The author tries to complete the game moderately fast, while showing off different things you can do and getting a high score in progress.

Doesn't get hit, except in 2 vs fights where losing is part of the game's plot.

Ending score: 32074970.

This run has two players and does not use warps.

As always, a bug on level 11 prevents player 2 from moving, so he gets a game over for that level. Player 1 plays level 11 alone and player 2 comes back for level 12. This is a bug in Battletoads itself.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Shooter
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.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Adventure
The StarTropics series, generally considered cult classics by many gamers, are NES action-RPGs that follow our hero Mike. In this installment of the franchise, he recieves a telepathic message from a princess he rescued in the previous game how to solve a cipher that him and his father found. However, as he reads it aloud, he is transported into the Stone Age.

As he saves some children from a flesh eating boar, he discovers a Tetrad piece and decides to collect them all. However, while in England, he notices Zoda, a villain again from the predecessor, trying to steal one. As Mike defeats Zoda, the villain reveals himself as Zoda-X. So Mike must travel through time to retrieve the rest of the tetrads and defeat Zoda-Y and Zoda-Z.

Sami helps Mike destroy the enemies with tool-assisted precision and finishing the game in a little over an hour. If you're looking for action with Sherlock Holmes and in Transylvania, look no further than this.

- Genre: Action
- Genre: Platform
Street Fighter 2010, completely unrelated to the fighting game series, is a unique game to say the least. The player must go through a series of levels, collecting enough powerups to warp from one to the next.

To progress as quickly as possible, proper planning of which enemies to target and what order to target them in is imperative. As this planning is evident here, this run by foda is all the more impressive. Even one who is not familiar with the game should find this run very beautiful and a lot of fun to watch.

Kirby Super Star is a consolidation of eight Kirby games in one. Since most of the games must be completed to reach the credits, this movie is fairly long.

The author, nitsuja, controls both players when applicable rather than letting the CPU operate the helper.

For those interested, the obsoleted movie uses only one controller. This accounts for the large time difference between the two movies.

- Genre: Action
- Genre: RPG
Lagoon is a low-tempo adventure game much like Zelda.

It is up to Nasir, Hero of Light, to save Lakeland from Zerah. Zerah is attempting to release the Evil Sprit and pollute all the water. This game is difficult due to the length of Nasir's sword.

We recommend reading the author's comments.

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

The author has aimed for fastest time with 100% completion.

- One player in a multiplayer game
- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Fighting
Here you can see a revision of this game by nitsuja, 4:35.31 minutes faster the previous run by mazzeneko. The strategy used was changed radically, using Raphael instead ofDonatello and using dash moves more often.

The damage for every move was mapped out carefully by monitoring the internal values of the RAM, to be able to choose the best attack for every situation. Luck was manipulated to make some enemies appear in more convenient positions.

This game involves slaying zombies and rescuing people, displayed from an overhead perspective. It's reminiscent of Fester's Quest but is much more fun.

Walker Boh controls both characters simultaneously, making this hard game even harder. Naturally, luck and glitches are abused in this run.

We recommend reading the author's comments; he wrote quite a detailed article of this movie.

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.
