Rather than being able to explore the world freely and sequence break to her heart's content, Samus is at the mercy of a computer's will. As a result this game is very linear with virtually no chance to collect items out of order.

The in-game completion time is 0:40 and no unnecessary items are collected (0%).

The encode without door transitions is available here on YouTube.

Splinter Cell is a well known stealth action game where agent Sam Fisher tries to rescue CIA agents from the bad guys.

However, in this run the author doesn't care about stealth at all and runs through the levels as fast as possible.

FractalFusion has also created a TAS for the game's GBA sequel.

Blaster Master - Enemy Below looks, sounds, and feels like a fanmade version of the top-notch NES platformer, Blaster Master, but it is actually a bona fide legitimate sequel on the Game Boy Color put forth by Sunsoft.

In this movie the author abuses many glitches to take massive shortcuts in the game (including skipping an entire level). He also intentionally kills off the character several times in order to avoid backtracking.

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.

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".

Metroid II: Return of Samus is the second game in the Metroid series, taking place immediately after the events of the NES Metroid. Samus arrives at the planet SR388 to exterminate all metroids and eventually succeeds.

This movie by Cardboard puts the Spring Ball and Spider Ball to great use to compensate for the lack of items, and achieves victory in the shortest time possible.

This is a 69 second improvement over the author's previous movie. The in-game time is 43 minutes.

This Contra game combines elements from the original Contra and Super C while adding some elements into one action packed game. Watch our hero cruise through 5 levels of steadily increasing difficulty yet still crushing those aliens in record time.

This movie is a 12 second improvement over the previous movie. Improvements come from use of the homing gun and from a bug that allows horizontal screen wrapping.

Altered Beast is originally an arcade game. In each level, the player must 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, and was first bundled with it.

This might look like it's an auto-scrolling game, but in fact the scroll speed depends on the number of enemies on screen. The player tries to kill all enemies as soon as possible to increase the scroll speed, using 2 characters to maximize this process. Almost 30 seconds were saved compared to the previous version.

Dynamite Headdy (1994) is an often-overlooked action/platformer gem whose main hero, a star puppet named Headdy, can attack his enemies by shooting his detachable head at them.

During the span of the game, Headdy must defeat the evil puppet king Dark Demon who captured his friends' home town, the Keymasters that guard the path to the villain, and Headdy's lifelong rival Trouble Bruin, who is eager to take his place in the production.

To prevent all those bad things from happening, Headdy has a nice arsenal of interchangeable heads that are used both to attack enemies and to aid traveling, which brings enough variety to entertain the viewer throughout the movie.

Gunstar Heroes (1993) is widely considered to be one of the best action games on the Sega Genesis, but, ironically, was commercially unsuccessful due to poor promotion. It features a variety of melee attacks, as well as 4 basic weapons which can be combined in pairs (making a total of 14 combinations) — all densely packed in a swift and explosion-heavy gameplay spanning over seven uniquely designed stages. The author takes special care to showcase all the moves the game is capable of, using every possible attack and having lots of fun playing around in autoscrolling sections.

This movie is 3 minutes longer than the previous one due to playing on hardest difficulty and using both Gunstars at the same time. See the author's comments for more details.

The AVI for this movie is also slightly larger than usual — this is due to an amount of colors and on-screen motion even the best codecs have problems coping with.


arkiandruski has provided an audio commentary for this movie, available here. He watches his run's encode and speaks along, play back your own copy as you listen to him.

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.

Midnight Resistance (1990) was a rather lackluster attempt at making a Contra-esque game, ported later to Sega Genesis. Still, it manages to preserve some of the genre's core values, and therefore is well suited for a TAS.

This is a 7 minute 38 second improvement over the previous movie. Much of this improvement is simply due to defeating bosses more quickly. The author has left detailed comments about these improvements.

A Sonic video without Sonic! Instead, Knuckles takes the spotlight and collects all the Chaos (and Super) Emeralds.

Though, since the latter set of Emeralds isn't used for anything meaningful at all, the author has also provided a version that skips all the Super Emeralds and their respective bonus stages, which is about 9 minutes shorter.

Splatterhouse 2 is a splatter-themed beat 'em up/action game featuring a skull-masked guy fighting against undead creatures to save a girl. It is also the sequel to this game.

Watch as Aqfaq takes a leisurely walk by hordes of zombies and other monsters, abusing some sliding tricks to maintain fast speed and defeat bosses quickly. In waiting periods, Aqfaq also shows some stunts, such as having monsters fall on his foot, delivering some wicked suckerpunches, or toying with the damsel in distress.

NOTE: The game is unofficially rated "PG-13" for violence and gruesome images.

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.

A rare instance of a Japanese-made NES game based on a U.S.-originated comic book, Bucky O'Hare (1992) provides a player with a good combination of platforming action similar to Mega Man, an interesting plot, and convincing production values. You can play as one of the five unique characters, which you are free to select at any time, after saving them from the clutches of the Toad Empire. Each character has special abilities required to take advantage of in order to pass through the game's numerous variably designed stages, ranging from single-screen puzzle rooms to autoscrolling shoot-'em-ups.

Interesting fact about this game is that Konami used to implement unconventional ways of piracy protection, in this particular case by making each hit or an otherwise harmful collision in the game result in an instant death if you play it illegitimately. Apparently, this was how a large amount of people were used to playing it in pre-emulation era, without ever finding out Konami's little sabotage.

This movie by AnS is set up in a fashion that imitates this handicap by playing the game in hard mode (accessing it through a password), where every hit results in death. Other than that, it also improves the previous movie by 2 minutes 48.7 seconds, using several major glitches and a lot of small tricks explained in great detail in the author's comments.

Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse (originally known as 悪魔城伝説 or Akumajō Densetsu, meaning "Legend of the Demon Castle") is the story of Trevor Belmont's battle against Dracula from the times before Simon's battle in Castlevania. In this complex and difficult game, there are three playable allies whom Trevor can recruit: Alucard (Dracula's son), Grant DaNasty (a pirate captain), and Sypha Belnades (a mystic warlord).

This game has a technically high-quality soundtrack because it uses a VRC6 sound chip that works in the Japanese Famicom but not in the NES. Thus, the movie was made with the Japanese version of the game instead of the USA version.

This movie takes the path that recruits Alucard. It is about 39 seconds faster than the previous movie, played by Genisto. There's also a Grant path movie and a Sypha path movie.

Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers 2 is quite an improvement over the original Chip 'n Dale in terms of graphics and a whole lot of other things. Thankfully, the original game's solid controls haven't been changed. The plot of this game is that Fat Cat has stolen the Pharaoh's Urn and wants to use its power (for evil purposes, of course).

Like the first movie, a two-player run makes for some interesting things, like Chip and Dale carrying each other around, and heavy abuse of death to take advantage of balloons. By killing off one character, he respawns on a floating balloon, thus going ahead of the other character. Unlike the first, however, this run frequently destroys bosses by using one of the characters as a weapon. Only in the Chip 'n Dale series can such apparently irrational action be justified.

This movie, the second submission for this game by dragonxyk, is a 18.55-second improvement over the previous movie. See here for a run with just Chip.

Darkwing Duck (1992) is a platformer somewhat similar to Mega Man in gameplay and difficulty. The arrow gun allows the player to climb up walls and use creative shortcuts so that the absolute shortest route can be taken. In case you are wondering why the character keeps on jumping so much, it is because he has to wait a short amount of time before being able to walk. With constant jumping these stops can be avoided.

This movie is a joint venture between AnS and Randil to improve the previous run by Walker Boh, resulting in 35.7 seconds saved through means of extensive optimization, luck manipulation and lag removal. We recommend reading the authors' comments for more details.

The Dizzy series of computer games was one of the most successful computer game brands of the late eighties. They were all based around a central figure, an intelligent egg-like creature called Dizzy.

Dizzy the Adventurer is an enhanced NES port of the sixth game in the series, Dizzy: Prince of the Yolkfolk, completed fast by the use of creative routes and of course, maximum speed.

There is also a run of the second game in the series, Treasure Island Dizzy.

This is a non-glitched run of Dragon Warrior 3, now under 2 hours long.

This game is known in the TAS world as being a pain to play due to the RNG (random number generator) being much harder to manipulate than most other games. As a result, seemingly random actions throughout the game are actually intentional manipulation of the RNG to ensure favourable outcomes, such as avoiding monsters or good battle outcomes.

To give you an idea of how surprising this time is to most players, the previous run is about 24 minutes longer than this one. Even before that, any run that was under 3 hours long was deemed to be very difficult to perform.

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

G.I. Joe (1991) is a platformer difficult because of its intricate routes and bosses, but the author makes short work of both. In particular, this movie sports some of the shortest boss fights of any game. It also provides entertainment through varied character and vehicle use (thankfully, the game still manages not to lag immensely even with all the action thrown in).

This is an improvement of 107 seconds to the previous movie by Ferret Warlord.

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").

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.

In this TAS of Jaws, the attack level is upgraded to 3, which is the minimum required to kill Jaws in a single encounter. 30,000 points are needed to get the mini-sub which has double attack power. Because of this, a regular encounter is substituted for a Jaws encounter, so that Jaws can be hit for more points.

Legacy of the Wizard (1987), released in Japan as "ドラゴンスレイヤーIV Dragon Slayer IV: Drasle Family", is actually a part of Dragon Slayer series. This is a nonlinear platforming adventure game, in which you gain control over one member of the Drasle family to explore the vast dungeon filled with mind bending puzzles and obscure secrets.

The goal of the game is to retrieve a powerful sword named Dragon Slayer, protected by four magical crowns, to kill an evil dragon trapped in the nearby labyrinth. Each member of the family has different abilities, and the portion of the labyrinth only he/she can go into to retrieve one of the crowns. However, this prerequisite was circumvented by the clever use of certain new glitches.

According to the author, this movie employs a completely different route, better luck manipulation and some new tricks that result in a 3:38 faster movie than the previous version.

Moral of this movie: Beware of short fat men, for they're surprisingly quick.

The games Mega Man 3, 4, 5 and 6 are all the same. Eight robot masters are defeated and Mega Man steals their weapons. After some kind of distraction, Mega Man attacks Wily's fortress and it typically gets blown up. If you don't believe that's true, we offer this movie.

While driving home the point in honor of our first multi-game movie, Baxter and AngerFist prove that Capcom really has been making the same game over and over again by playing Mega Man 3, 4, 5 and 6 using the same input.

No attempt is made to synchronize the endings of these games. Mega Man 6 finishes first and Mega Man 4 finishes last.

The CPU demands for playback of this movie are unusually high. Systems under 1.2 GHz may struggle to play this video. The audio has been processed by adelikat for virtual surround sound.

We recommend sitting back as far as possible and looking (staring?) at the center of the screen when watching the AVI.

If you like this movie, you may like to check out some other movies in which multiple games are played simultaneously with one controller.

Might and Magic, released in 1986, was the first installment in the series that would later evolve into a whole fictional universe, encompassing both the actual M&M games and a multitude of subseries and spin-offs made in their own genres, including King's Bounty, Heroes of Might & Magic, and others.

Normally, this game is rather long. This movie by Dammit skips most of it by using a glitch that allows the player to get all the important items in a matter of a few minutes.


We strongly recommend reading the author's comments for further details and explanations. For viewers' convenience, we included some of them in the AVI as subtitles.

- Genre: Platform
Mighty Bomb Jack is a game where Jack goes to rescue his family from a pyramid. Along the way, he meets many enemies who start as mummies and change forms when they hit the ground. He also finds bomb-filled rooms at the end of each round, which work like warp rooms with a twist: you can warp ahead to the bomb room of the next round if the first lit bomb is the last bomb collected. Using this, the author warps past many rounds.

However, this movie aims for the best ending, which is obtained by freeing all the family members in Round 12. This means that the author avoids warping past some rounds in order to collect items. For more details, read the submission comments.

NINJA外伝2 — The Dark Sword of Chaos, now completed about 4 seconds faster than the previous version by the same author, due to lots of small optimizations throughout every level.

The shadow clones are a unique gameplay element not seen elsewhere in the series, but in this movie they are used mainly to make extremely short work of bosses and entertain the viewer immediately afterwards.

The game has a rich plot with lots of cutscenes. Because of this, the author has also supplied the "story" version of the movie, which exhibits the same gameplay but includes all the cutscenes skipped by pressing start (which sum up to about 3/4 of the entire movie). It can be obtained here.
A good sense of humor is strongly advised to note the irony present in some of the later dialogues between characters.

In the year 2029, evil Emperor Garuda somehow establishes a dictatorial government in the United States. After many lives are lost, two ninjas attempt to overthrow him.

Shadow of the Ninja is one of the rare games in which constantly jumping and slashing is faster than regular running. The author makes sure to use this move extensively both to travel and to deal damage to enemies, and so it may seem that the ninja has a severe case of ADHD.

This game was released in Europe as Blue Shadow and in Japan as Kage.

TMNT3 is the last installment of the TMNT series on the NES. Unlike in the second game, the turtles have different special attacks with different power and speed. The special attack also consumes one life point, unless there is only one life point remaining.

Raphael is by far the fastest turtle, but he also has the weakest special attack. Michaelangelo has the strongest special attack, though he is slow. Leonardo is also used occasionally in this run, since his special attack can hit some bosses twice. Unfortunately for Donatello fans, Don is not used in the run.

This movie improves the previous one by over 3 minutes, due to the use of two turtles and careful management of score and health.

Wizards & Warriors is a famous platform game with quirky physics where a mere bird can make a heavy iron-clad knight bounce several feet into the air.

This is a full completion of the game. We also have a run that beats the game as fast as possible using the "reuse levels" glitch.

This TAS is around 92 seconds faster than the previous version by Walker Boh due to better luck manipulation and new minor glitches.

In this game, you're an armor-clad knight with a big sword. You collect gems to bribe a red knight, kill evil beasts and rescue several "distressed damsels".

This movie, an improvement of 76 seconds over the previous, takes advantage of a glitch that allows you to re-enter the first map and substitute the last few levels with the first levels. There is also a slightly longer movie that does not use this trick.


Do you want to see more adventures of the iron-clad hero of this game, Kuros?
Read the Knights of the Old Coding online comic. It's hilarious.

Literally translated, the name of this game means "demon travel journal".

It tells a story about a boy, Tarosuke, who seeks to meet Buddha, who will decide about Tarosuke's next life.
In order to meet Buddha, Tarosuke has to do lots of good deeds which earn him "piousness".

This movie is ~80 seconds faster than the previous movie by Morimoto, which was the oldest non-obsoleted movie on this site at the time, being almost 4 years old.


Because there is a lot of interesting dialog in this movie, but all in Japanese, the provided AVI is made to contain English subtitles for all in-game dialog text, as well as some explanations. It should help understanding the game events as well as enjoying its weird sense of fun.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 for the Sega Master System completed with all emeralds. Unlike many Sonic games, acquiring emeralds is done within normal stages rather than bonus levels, and getting all of them allows you to play the true final level.

Trivia: This game slightly predates the Mega Drive/Genesis version, so it features the official first appearance of Sonic's flying mutant fox friend, Tails.

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

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

For a movie that completes the game even faster using a warping glitch, see this run.

Final Fantasy V is probably the least known of the Final Fantasy series on the SNES, because it was never published in the USA.

This movie plays through the game in three and a half hours. We recommend reading the author’s comments regarding this movie to understand the manipulation used.

The boss battles, including the last boss, might be somewhat anticlimactic in this movie due to the use of a one-hit-kill spell (L5 Doom) which was made to work by varying means in each battle.

Note: Because this game was never released in the USA and our rules regarding fan translations are a bit strict, all text in this movie is in Japanese.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mega Man X2 makes a particularly interesting run as there are many weapons that can be used to increase mobility. These include a grappling hook, a fast mid-air dash and a weapon that can transform enemies into platforms. The authors take special care to ensure that when there is a situation in which a weapon could help them progress quicker, they make use of it.

This run improves the previous version by about 23 seconds of game-time. The previous run used the Japanese ROM, and the shorter cutscenes in that version make the improvement less apparent.

This movie aims for the fastest time possible. However, because the shōryūken (flame uppercut) used towards the end of the movie saves so much time, and because to get it the authors must first collect 100% of items such as Heart Tanks, Sub Tanks, and Item Capsules, this movie could be seen as a 100% run. Zero Parts are not required for the shōryūken, and thus they are not collected.

If you would like to watch this game played collecting Zero's parts, but not collecting any of X's, see this run.

The page Mega Man X Tricks explains some of the tricks that can be used in the X series games.

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

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

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

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

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

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

U.N. Squadron (1989) is a nice-looking horizontal shoot 'em up loosely based on a manga and anime series called Area 88 (which is also the name this game was released with in Japan), about a brave young pilot, Shin Kazama, and his experiences at a mercenary air force base.

Here, you see Shin mercilessly slaughtering everything in his sight and stuffing the bosses full of the heaviest artillery available—of course, not forgetting the usual suicidal dancing around the bullets in the meantime.
