- Genre: Platform
Batman Begins is a game where Batman basically acts like a ninja. A few glitches, especially the mid-air jump glitch, speeds up a game otherwise bogged down by a lot of lag. The game's engine also appears to be recycled from other GBA titles, such as Splinter Cell.

Because the game was new at the time of submission, the author had no other runs and almost no walkthroughs to rely on.

Nathan Graves is a vampire hunter trying to save his master, Morris, from the clutches of Dracula. Normally this would require collecting lots of different items as well as hours of leveling, but Cardboard proves collectible cards passé by gathering almost none of the cards required for spells and blazing through the game at warp speed without regard to levels or his own safety.

This movie is a 10.5 second improvement over the author's previous movie through various small & thorough optimizations.

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, a bit of luck manipulation and a series of glitches involving DSS cards 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 21 frame improvement over the previous movie by the same author due to some small optimizations.

Everyone’s favorite gymnastics winner is back in this remake of the classic console game. This time the Prince of Persia accidentally unleashes the Sands of Time, turning everyone except him, an evil Vizier and a mysterious girl named Farah into zombies. The Sands also gave the Prince a few new unexpected powers, like the ability to walk through walls and repeatedly jump underneath platforms.

John Romero's Daikatana is set in 2455 AD, in a dystopian future brought on by the actions of a man named Kage Mishima, who now rules the earth. However, this future is actually an alternate timeline created by the mystical Daikatana sword, which allows the one who wields it to travel through time. A martial arts teacher, Hiro Miyamoto (no relation to Shigeru), journeys to recover the Daikatana and return the universe to its natural timeline.

A Boy and His Blob: The Rescue of Princess Blobette is a sequel to the NES game with equally silly title. This time, the boy and his obedient friend save a princess, who is caged in a castle tower. The rescue operation is supposedly executed as efficiently as possible, even though it means that the boy needs to sacrifice one of his lives just to save some time.

Kirby is a little round thing, and like Sonic, makes for an excellent pinball. Kirby must navigate through three boards to defeat his usual foes by knocking into them repeatedly, with the help of traditional pinball flippers.

This movie skips most of the normal pinball aspects of the game and goes right to the bosses. Clever luck manipulation is used to position them perfectly for optimal damage from Kirby.

What luck that she should receive an assignment to go to that planet!"

Ninja Gaiden Shadow (aka. Shadow Warriors) is actually a licensed GB port of Shadow of the Ninja on the NES console. Because of this, it is fairly faithful to the original despite starring Ryu Hayabusa, the main character of the Ninja Gaiden series.

In this Gaiden of a gaiden, Ryu Hayabusa manages to defeat Emperor Garuda and save mankind in under 12 minutes, notwithstanding running slower than in other Ninja Gaiden games.

Ecco: The Tides of Time (1994) is the sequel to Ecco the Dolphin. It is harder than the original, and continues its bizarre science fiction plotline. You control Ecco the dolphin, navigating the waters, circumnavigating the time-stream, saving lost DNA nucleotide pairs, and finding key crystals, schools of fish and pockets of air deep down in submarine caves.

Ecco is capable of moving at very high speed but has little in the way of brakes. Turning corners without smashing into walls is tricky to say the least.

This run plays on the hardest difficulty mode.

Award - Lucky TAS of 2008
At TASVideos, even 10 second long movies are improved, and game characters become so powerful they don't even have to move in order to complete the game.

This improvement is a result of the previous movie's author joining forces with the author of a VBA bot used in a glitched-out Pokémon TAS. Together they've managed to shorten the solution by 14 frames with the help of a similarly-designed bot for Gens.

Note that, while input length is 10 seconds long, less than 0.3 seconds of it is actual gameplay!

This colorful game is based on the manga of the same name and features what appears to be a magical baby navigating through some unusual and fairly friendly looking enemies. Everything, particularly inanimate objects, has a face. The levels vary from suburbia to castles to clouds, and end with particularly unique bosses.

The main character's ability to glide sets this apart from many other platformers. The author uses this power frequently to both gain speed and to simply hover above helpless enemies.

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 a 35 second improvement over the previous movie by highness. Much of the improvement comes from an interesting glitch in the last level.

Warning: This movie has been rated PG-13 by the TVRA for Tool-Assisted Violence, Brief Nudity, and Inappropriate Glitch Abuse. Viewer discretion advised.

- Genre: Action
RoboCop versus The Terminator (1993) is based on a comic book that is a typical example of two popular but completely unrelated fiction universes merged into one. Such a process usually results in ruined timeline coherence for either, and this game is no exception.

As a result, we get a pretty wild mishmash of RoboCop's and Terminator's backstories in a silly plot accompanied by equally silly gameplay. This includes seemingly inescapable bullet sprays, leotard-clad baddies, exploding heads, hidden 1-ups conveniently placed in molten lava, and so on. The sheer frustration RoboCop experiences from all this madness can only be vented by banging his head on a rock!
(You wish any of this was a joke, but it's actually all there.)

The Genesis version of this game is notable for the amount of gore and other PG-13 goodies, as well as for the ability to abuse death and other things that make it most suitable for a TAS.

Unlike in the comic books, here Spiderman talks less and smashes his enemies more - with boosted (tool-assisted) efficiency. The run also features some speedy movement via web-slinging.

This is about a 11 second improvement over the previous movie by Neofix and mmbossman.

Note: The movie length is longer than the previous movie because the author kept the movie recording long enough to initiate the final credits (unlike previous movies).

A typical streetfighting game which spawned the popular Streets of Rage trilogy. 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.

Compared to the previous movie, this is over 10 minutes faster. Primarily due to the use of 2-players and a glitch that skips most of the last level.

Details can be found in the authors' comments.

An action-packed wild-west shooting game converted from the arcades. It doesn't have all the levels and characters of the original, but makes for an interesting movie nonetheless.

In this run enemies blindly spray bullets at the main characters, naturally missing every shot as bad guys generally do. (Heroes, no matter where or when, can be assumed to have plasma shields.)

This version by zggzdydp is about 27 seconds faster than the previous movie due to various scattered improvements, most notably the 3-2 boss fight.

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

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.

Mischief Makers (1997) is one of the rare 2D sidescrollers released for Nintendo 64. The player controls Marina, the robotic maid of a lecherous and absent-minded professor Theo, who has a habit of being kidnapped constantly. The ones who abduct him every now and then are Clancers from the evil Empire. (And make sure to watch out for the plot twist at the end!)

Marina is quite a versatile cyborg. She can boost continuously in the air, ride vehicles, slide and jump like a maniac, and most importantly, shake. Make no mistake, you'll be seeing Comicalflop shake this thing, and even that thing quite a lot in this fast-paced run.

The game is broken down into 52 short areas, each of them having a separate timer. Because of this, the author aims to optimize the movie for shortest in-game time. Each stage is given a rank based on how fast the stage was completed; this run gets all S Ranks.

The game has some emulation errors, such as unnatural amounts of lag in some stages, and graphical glitches. See the author's comments for more details.

Super Smash Bros. began a series of games that mixes characters from several Nintendo-made games into a unique fighting game. It relies not on wearing down the opponent's "life" but increasing damage until he or she can be literally knocked off the stage. Wildly popular, this game has inspired many lazy days of casual multiplayer gaming but also intense competitive tournaments that happen to this day.

We have seen several submissions for this game here but this is the first one to be published. The author shows off fancy fighting with Yoshi on the hardest difficulty. Rather than the usual goal of speed, this movie aims to be as entertaining as possible in the tradition of all fighting games here.

Another movie, which aims for fastest completion time instead, can be watched here. There are also several other submissions of various levels of quality that can be watched on an emulator.

Turok: Dinosaur Hunter is a critically acclaimed first-person action game released on the Nintendo 64 in 1997. It stars a hero of controversial descent, being a pre-Colombian Native American time-travelling warrior, referred to as Turok. As such, he must stop an evil entity known as The Campaigner from conquering the universe with a time-controlling artifact called the Chronoscepter (amazing, really). This also was the reason for stuffing the game full with anachronisms, so you'll see high-tech weapons and teleporters together with magic crossbows and dinosaurs.

Turok has been famous for being the first fog navigation simulator of its time. The omnipresent fog was included to obscure the low rendering distance that was used in order to increase performance on N64's hardware, but it also resulted in a somewhat claustrophobic feeling throughout the game. To further confuse the disoriented player, the majority of wall textures are nondescript and repetitive, making it easy to get lost at times.

Disclaimer: Due to various complaints of motion sickness caused by the strafe-running technique utilized, the viewer is encouraged to keep an airsickness bag handy in case of sudden nausea.

8 Eyes (1990) is a Castlevania clone that was made by Thinking Rabbit, the originators of Sokoban. But, unlike Castlevania, this game is set in a post-apocalyptic future in which eight nuclear explosions almost destroyed Earth. 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.

The gameplay has undergone some changes compared to its predecessor. A welcome addition to it is a slide movement, similar to the one in the Mega Man series. A not-so-welcome addition is that half the stages are autoscrolling, and there are no close combat weapons now.

Super Spy Hunter (1992) was originally released in Japan under the name Battle Formula (バトルフォーミュラ). The game has "become" a sequel to Spy Hunter, the arcade classic from 1983, already after its initial release — when the developer purchased the license from Midway.

Since the main character drives a wheeled vehicle, this game shows to be the rare kind of a variable scrolling speed shooter, where you can slow the car down if you can't keep up with the action (which obviously never happens in a TAS). The core gameplay holds true to its spiritual predecessor, but this time it's spiced up with stage bosses and various sorts of powerups.

This movie is a 1 minute 14 second improvement over the previous one thanks to increased precision, lag reduction, and better boss fighting.

If science fiction is to be believed, the ultimate evolution for biological beings is to discard the physical body and become an entity of pure energy. For video game characters, it seems to be the ability to zip through walls. In this latest TAS by zggzdydp, Simon Belmont joins the league of characters possessing this ability.

Castlevania II: Simon's Quest is the story of Simon's horrible weekend without sleep. Two years after defeating Dracula, the hero is physically weakened by Dracula's curse. He must gather Dracula's remains and incinerate them at the ruins of Castlevania in order to end the curse.

This movie is 2 minutes and 23 seconds faster than the previous effort by the same author. We recommend to read his comments for explanations on how this improvement was achieved.

Demon Sword (1989) 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 just can't jump much lower) and is willing to defeat the evil demon that conquered the world. The key to defeating it is Victar's sword, which is conveniently broken into pieces that must be collected over the span of the game.

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

Xipo comes back to this game with yet another large improvement: This time 108 seconds were saved over the previous movie. It was achieved by manipulating enemies to drop speed upgrades upon their death.

Note: This movie was created using an overdumped ROM. It needs "Demon Sword (U) [o1].nes" to playback properly.

After hearing about how the dark overlord Darces has returned, our hero goes on a quest to unite all five one elements in order to defeat Darces and save the kingdom.

In this storybook-view RPG, the author zooms around the game world, entering the most dangerous of dungeons, killing two powerful monsters, and collecting the bare minimum needed to beat the game in incredible fashion. Despite the player being unable to survive one hit, the author subverts certain death with the handy pause system. Despite the player supposedly being unable to damage the monsters, an underflow glitch allows for massive damage. Despite the final boss standing right there to kill him, the viewer sees all of 3 frames of the dark overlord. It's an RPG done in just over one minute, without warping or save glitching.

The author had spent much effort in understanding the game, and all that work has finally paid off. We recommend reading the author's comments.

Selected comments from the author:

High Speed was released on the NES by Rare Inc. in 1991 and is based on a real pinball machine released by Williams pinball in 1985. The core rules of High Speed were ported over fairly faithfully from the original pinball machine although Rare added in two different minigames and a "wizard mode" goal which is reached by completing a total of 8 cannon minigames and 6 race minigames.

Completing all three races and all four cannon minigames causes a spaceship to appear which displays a message that states "you have beaten the system... for now”; beating another round of three races and four cannon minigames causes a rocket to appear which states “you have beaten the system this time.” and marks the end of the game. Reaching this final “you beat the system” bonus is the goal of this speedrun.

Unfortunately, Red from the last year's carnage got into an accident involving a badly thrown grenade and a few land mines, so Green takes it on all by himself in this new episode of Jackal.

Not having to deal with the larger amount of two-player mayhem also means the game goes faster, which is a win for everybody. (Except that Red guy.) Coupled with better playing, this constitutes the 9 second improvement over the previous movie by xipo.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Platform
Karnov is one of those games whose fame defies my logicBisqwit.

The game retells the legend of a muscular fire-spitting man called Karnov, employed by Scottish villagers to eat gypsies' babies and pillage their settlements. Except in this particular case, Karnov's full name is Jinborov Karnovski, he looks like an old-school Ukrainian, turns blue when hit, and his goal here is to take some kind of treasures from feeble, unsuspecting enemies. Later in the game he also grows a pair of wings and flies. In doing so, he strongly defies laws of physics, common sense, and notions of subtle Kid Icarus mockery.

The developers of this game, Data East, probably decided it would be a good idea to only let the screen scroll in one direction at once, and pretty slowly at that. It's not particularly surprising, though, considering the previous paragraph.

This new version of Karnov TAS by adelikat is a ~5 second improvement over the previous movie by Arc. The time was saved thanks to taking damage in a different part of the run, as well as various small optimizations scattered around.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Platform
Kick Master (1991) stars a hero named Thonolan, who really likes kicking things. Obviously, the first thing you'll see him doing is kicking some odd-looking trinkets out of the enemies. By doing so repeatedly and collecting the trinkets like a true hero, he levels up and gains new abilities, allowing him to kick the various enemies stronger and faster than before. You will marvel at the laws of physics being stomped by Thonolan's feet.

This game loops, and has to be completed once in order to unlock a higher difficulty mode, but since all it does is double the enemies' HP, it has been considered unnecessary.

Dragonxyk's take on this game is 26 seconds faster than the previous movie by foda.

Kid Niki 3 (aka. Kaiketsu Yanchamaru 3 - Taiketsu! Zouringen) is the sequel to Kid Niki and Kid Niki 2. However, it looks quite different from the previous games. In this game, you are a ninja who is a master of bo-jutsu (stick art), and you defeat enemies and get over obstacles with your staff. This game also has many locked doors which can be opened with keys found in the levels.

TaoTao breezes through this game, in part due to a glitch which allows repeated backflips up walls. For more details, see the submission comments.

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 eighth TAS of Maniac Mansion—is about 46 seconds faster than the previous attempt.

This game is a platformer about a purple alien shape-shifter named Widget. Along with being able to turn into a few different animals to run faster or get through small passageways, he has the power to zip through walls, shoot at ridiculous rates, and find doors where there were no doors before!

..all the while, keeping that creepy, stupid grin on his face.

This is an improvement of 13.21 seconds over the author's previous run.

One of a few dungeon crawlers on this site. The player's team of a couple characters travels through a dungeon at breakneck speed, obtaining the minimum necessary to destroy the evil wizard, then leaving.

A great amount of luck-manipulation was required; so much that TaoTao used a bot to do parts of this run. That's why the rerecord count says 200000. The number of manual rerecords is around 1000.

This Konami-"disowned" Castlevania title follows the earliest Belmont, Sonia, as she attempts to thwart Dracula for the first time. We also meet his son Alucard for the first time. This movie collects the 5 optional Belmont Treasures, which enables a secret ending after the credits with mysterious implications.

The author whips through the game, especially the bosses, taking advantage of an outrageous glitch that entirely skips the end of a level, plus the special "burning mode" (ok... blinking mode) that allows for faster movement and harder whip action.


Note: This movie requires either VBA rerecording v20 or v24.

King's Quest is a popular adventure franchise for the PC by Sierra that focuses on exploration and puzzle solving. This movie features one of the few console ports of any Sierra adventure game. Notably, it features improved graphics and sound as compared to the original, which is usually not the case for these ports.

Usually this game would take many hours of wandering, collecting objects and solving problems. The author however is able to focus on key events and manages to beat the game in less time than Super Mario Bros...

This new movie is about a full minute faster due to newly found exploits.

If you enjoy this movie, you may want to take a look at this movie of King's Quest V for the NES by the same author. It is unfortunately much longer and has poor graphics compared to the original, but is impressive nonetheless for people who have played it before.

Monsters have blown up and escaped from a top secret Psychic Research facility and stolen one of the lovely lab assistants as well. Dr. Knavik gives Lucia his precious ESP Booster to save her twin sister Cecile.

By collecting various items on her travels, the ESP Booster grants Lucia various powers (kind of like Mega Man...) to destroy her enemies and also navigate quickly through levels. This is exacerbated for the author by poor hit detection and finicky input control. Input is only allowed one time every four frames. Nevertheless the end result is a fast paced and varied movie.

In this first game in the popular Wonder Boy series, Tom-Tom is out to rescue his beloved girlfriend Tanya from the wicked monster Drancon. Our nearly naked hero must travel through a variety of different environments, using a hatchet and several powerups to defend himself against the dangerous enemies along the way. The game was later ported to the NES (with altered graphics and music) as Hudson's Adventure Island.

AngerFist runs, jumps, shoots, and shreds his way to Drancon, beating the game in a little under 45 minutes.

The SNES version of Aladdin (1993) follows the plot of this Disney movie much more closely than its Genesis counterpart.

The core trick of this TAS is to abuse the parachute extensively to move faster than normal walking or jumping.

Thanks to numerous small improvements, the time has been lowered by 15.5 seconds compared to the author's previous attempt. We recommend reading his comments for more detail.

Goof Troop (1993) is a cheerful puzzle game based on Disney show of the same name. The gameplay is somewhat similar to NES Legend of Zelda with its maze-like map filled with one-screen rooms, except this time the emphasis on puzzles is stronger, and you can play in co-op.

In this movie the authors control two characters (Goofy and Max) simultaneously. This allows for a good deal of team work as one character can go get an item while the other heads for the exit. When there is no multi-tasking to do, the authors do a good job performing antics with one or both of the characters.

This is a nearly 4 minute improvement over Frenom's previous movie. Improvements come from new tricks, better teamwork, luck manipulation and optimized movements.

- Genre: RPG
Final Fantasy IV (renamed to Final Fantasy II in North-American publication) was a revolution to the RPG genre. It was the first to introduce the active battle system, among many other redeeming qualities.

This movie plays through the game in a mere 2 hours, 53 minutes and 14 seconds. It aims for real time, but has a secondary goal of lowest in-game time when that does not incur an expense in real time. The in-game completion time is 1:59:28.

The author also included many easter eggs, or surprise occurrences, throughout the movie. These have been detailed in the author's comments. We recommend reading the comments regarding this movie.

Note: This movie resets the game console a few times, first saving the game and then loading it, so to watch it on an emulator, you will need an emulator that supports recording the console resets.

This movie was made with the original English-language version. The downloadable encodes were encoded with the Action Replay code 0495DCFF, which keeps the music volume from decreasing while the game is paused. This greatly reduces the annoyance factor of constant pausing during battles, which is done to save time.

As you might know, Konami realised they went a little overboard with the difficulty of the arcade version of Gradius III, so the SNES port got noticeably easier (and laggier). However, it still remains one of the hardest and most unforgiving shoot 'em ups released in its era.

This is Cpadolf's take at the shmupping carnage, resulting in a significant improvement in both speed and style over the previous movie by Krocketneo. In total, 2 minutes 53 seconds are saved thanks to lag reduction and faster boss fights. The author also kills a greater percentage of enemies (still not fully 100%, though — read the comments for more details).

The game is completed in Arcade mode (still a far cry from the actual arcade game), which is accessed by tapping A on the main menu screen. It is strongly recommended to read the congratulatory text appearing after the end credits. ;)

- One player in a multiplayer game
- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Action
- Genre: Platform
This is a game based on the completely "unique" concept of an evil boss trying to take over/destroy/do whatever with the world, and despite the Earth being filled with about 7 billion occupants, you are the only one who can stop it.

At first glance it may seem odd that, although the game is two player, only one player is used, and that's Player 2. Player 2 was chosen because her aerial attack gives an enormous speed boost. It is also one of the few attacks in video games that operates on frame precision, so smashing out a 30Hz rapid-fire on the controller will lay the beatdown pretty quickly.

That, combined with the fact that half the enemies in this game are of the standard "walk around and shoot" variety, allow the heroine to zip through the game with total reckless abandon. Few games allow a TASer to do that, so this is a rare opportunity indeed.

The game is eerily similar to Mega Man 7 and Mega Man X. It even has pick-throwing miners.

This is a 24 second improvement over the previous movie by the use of some new tricks. These are explained in the author's comments.

Important: This movie requires Snes9x 1.43 v15.3 or earlier. It desyncs on later versions.

Super Mario Kart is the first in a popular series of games starring the Mario cast racing go-karts. This run aims to get record times in all tracks at 150cc difficulty. This is achieved mostly by jumping straight into walls, bottomless pits, and lava, among many other things. Mushrooms are also used frequently due to their mysteriously friction-free propulsion powers. A high amount of wall-bouncing is required.

This run is over a minute and a half faster than the previous published run, due to new exploits of the definition of a lap.

- Genre: Shooter
Super R•Type (1991) is the 4th game of the classic R•Type series of arcade shooters, whose distinct gameplay and level design inspired numerous developers to create clones and various look-alikes. However, this particular installment isn't considered canon—it is an SNES-exclusive mash-up of the first two R•Type games.

In a nutshell, the series' plot is about the evil Bydo empire, which is a highly developed alien lifeform with hivemind mentality—akin to the Borg or the Zerg. The player pilots a spacecraft on a mission to destroy the Bydo. The craft's most prominent weapon is the so-called force—a spherical pod which is, in fact, a living piece of Bydo flesh and an indestructible mineral at the same time! Conveniently, the pod can be attached to the player's craft to shield it from bullets, or launched at enemies to inflict large amounts of damage.

All R•Type games are known to be very unforgiving; they require the player to learn strict paths that revolve memorizing safe paths through stages and tactically using the force pod to quickly dispatch of enemies and protect the ship. The author of this TAS, however, throws all the strictness and tacticalness out the window to play around and just ram most of the enemies with the pod. (Try this in realtime if you want to know true frustration.)
Other than that, the movie uses a password to access the second loop's difficulty level (eloquently called "PRO") without having to beat the game twice. It still doesn't get the good ending, though.

Wild Guns is a science-fiction/western game involving a lot of guns, explosions, and robots. One peculiar control feature is that the character's movement and aim are controlled simultaneously. The stages look like they are on a fixed timer, but every killed enemy decreases the game clock. By shooting enemy bullets out of the air, a meter builds up for the very powerful Vulcan gun.

This is nearly a 6 minute improvement over the previous movie due to the use of 2 players, more accuracy, and some nice tricks. The author has also embedded a few subliminal messages throughout the movie. Details can be found in the author's comments.
