Ghouls 'n Ghosts is the sequel to the brutally hard Ghosts 'n Goblins, and is brutally hard in its own right. This run is of the original coin-op version, which is most similar to the Genesis one. One of the major differences is less armor from chests.

Creative use of damage and picture perfect boss fights combine with some glitchy looking jumps as xipo takes on Lucifer's many demons. The game is completed twice (which is necessary to get the ending) and along the way we are treated to some fabulous Engrish and more information than necessary about the damsel in distress.

Contra 4 (2007) is largely a combined remake of the early NES and SNES Contra titles, featuring remixed music and vastly improved visuals utilizing both screens of the DS as if they were one contiguous screen.

Watch Bill Rizer embark on a new colorful adventure in the shirtless land, this time making even less sense than ever before. To quote the game's ending: Whatever the truth may have been, it was lost to time as the invaders became a mere footnote in the pages of history. A footnote which read: they sure blew up good.

Resident Evil: Deadly Silence is a Nintendo DS enhanced port of the original PlayStation survival horror game. The S.T.A.R.S. Bravo team has gone missing and it's up to the S.T.A.R.S. Alpha team to investigate their disappearance.

In this run, Fladdermus takes control of Alpha team's Jill Valentine and proceeds to tear apart Classic Mode in under half an hour. For more information, see his comments.

- Uses death to save time
- 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.

- Heavy glitch abuse
- Genre: Platform
This game is Super Mario Bros., the original, but on the Famicom Disk System. It is much similar to the ROM version of the game, except for one minor difference that is demonstrated here.

The -1 stage is completely different. In the NES and Unisystem versions, the -1 stage repeats infinitely and cannot be completed, but in FDS, it can be completed, and then come -2 and -3.

The -3 stage in FDS is a castle level, and completing it ends the game, even though it says "princess is in another castle". The princess is not seen in the ending, but she is sighted twice in the -1 stage, as shown in this movie.

This movie is 84 frames faster than the previous one due to the use of a "cheap trick".

- Heavy luck manipulation
- Genre: Strategy
In the second game of this popular series, the four warring countries from the original game find themselves uniting against a common foe who, at the game's opening, has almost completely overrun the planet.

With the help of carefully devised strategies, a little bit of luck manipulation, and moving the cursor at inhuman speed, the author repels this planetary invasion over the course of slightly more than an hour.

Reading the author's comments is strongly recommended to help keep track of what's going on.

Kuru Kuru Kururin is an unusual game that is a mix of racing/puzzle genres. The player controls a slowly spinning stick called the Helirin, and must maneuver it through a series of mazes. The player controls the direction and speed of movement but not the Helirin's constant rotation. In this fast paced TAS Ryuto chooses to ignore damage penalties in exchange for blazing fast realtime completion and creative methods of getting around the Helirin's forced rotation to squeeze into even the tiniest of gaps.

Zero has a new body which he does all the same old stuff with. Once again, it's on the Game Boy Advance. As with the other games in the series, there is a delay with every hit of the Z-Saber, so many enemies are killed in other ways. (In particular, in this game, Zero can pick up guns from some enemies and use them for added variety.)

This run is almost 4 minutes and 20 seconds faster than the previous movie, in spite of having over 30 seconds more text due to game version differences. A large part of this improvement is due to new combos. Also, the invulnerability times of midbosses are abused even further with midair wobbling of the Z-Saber or the Z-Knuckles. For more details, see the run's comments.

Ninja Five-O features a ninja cop battling evil ninja masters and terrorists.

Joe Osugi, bizarre 'anti-terrorist ninja', is called in to assist the local police, who seem to be completely useless in rescuing some hostages.

The game is basically a series of rooms connected together. Your job is to rescue the hostages and then escape the stage through the red door. You have in your arsenal a three-level shuriken, a sword, and a grappling hook similar to the one from Bionic Commando. Joe also has two special abilities: to make himself invincible and to attack all enemies on screen.

This new version by Cardboard is 1 minute and 31 seconds faster than the previous one by Nitsuja, containing even more ropeswinging acrobatics and ninja madness.

Mega Man Xtreme is a port of the popular Mega Man X series to the Game Boy Color. It adapts the Mavericks and their stages from that series and wraps it into gameplay more suited for the portable console.

Here, FractalFusion speeds through the game and exploits glitches to create a movie worthy of what we have come to expect from Mega Man at TASVideos.

This movie is played from a savestate that has unlocked "Xtreme mode", which allows you to play all of the levels in one game. Runs that start from a savestate are not normally allowed; see the Movie Rules for more on this.

Wario Land II was the last first-party title made for the Game Boy, and was later re-released for the Game Boy Color to take advantage of the new hardware. Wario's nemesis, Captain Syrup, and her Black Sugar Gang (formerly the Brown Sugar Pirates) invade his castle and steal his precious treasure. Outraged, Wario races across the land to defeat Captain Syrup and take back the treasure.

This run beats the game with 100% completion: collecting all treasures, completing the picture panel and completing the extra time attack stage (the Really Final Chapter).

In this game, some short fat guy decides to prove that the police as well as Batman are incapable of doing their jobs. So he steals Batman's outfit, some of his toys, and brings along with himself advanced military weapon prototypes to wipe out the Joker once and for all till the next game, and save Gotham city.

This run starts off with walking by enemies, showing how incompetent criminals are at firing guns. It proceeds to aerial combat a bit reminiscent of Gradius, further demonstrating that even when criminals fire, their weapons are no match for Batman's Batwing, even when piloted by a Batman impostor. The big finale here shows that as evil as the Joker is, he like all others cannot withstand rocket grenades indefinitely.

In this funny, cool, and unique game, Prince Sabure is on a journey to save the Mille-Feuille Kingdom and its beautiful princess before his rival does. Along the way, he gains the ability to transform into a frog and a snake and can use these new powers to make it to the overtaken castle even faster.

The rival, Prince Richard, is known as one of the characters who make an appearance in The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening.

VISUALSHOCK! SPEEDSHOCK! SOUNDSHOCK!
NOW IS TIME TO THE 68000 HEART ON FIRE!

Alien Soldier, released in 1995, is a spiritual successor to Gunstar Heroes (you can tell by the cameo appearances of certain bosses), and a real treat in terms of production values as described in the tagline quoted above. The game's rather nonsensical plot boils down to the protagonist, Epsilon-Eagle, having to fight his former terrorist comrades (as well as everything on his path). Thankfully, speedrunners don't care about plots either way.

What is more important is that Alien Soldier epitomizes Treasure's concept of an action game: a fast-paced, flashy, relentless boss rush. As such, it has 33 grotesque bosses, each of them promising a guaranteed game over for inexperienced players. However, using Epsilon-Eagle's vast arsenal of weapons and dodging abilities, the authors plow through the game's "SUPERHARD" difficulty without any regard to its name in this long-awaited movie, achieving a total in-game time of 8 minutes 13 seconds.

Crusader of Centy (1994), also known as Soleil, tells the story of a teenage boy saving humanity from monsters that might or might not actually be evil. To his aid he has up to two pets at a time granting him some special ability.

The movie takes advantage of the way the game calculates movement speed to make some seemingly impossible long jumps and skip large parts of some rooms.

Dark Castle looks like a Genesis version of Donkey Kong. This new movie is eleven frames faster than the previous version by Aqfaq and Stanski.

Selected statement by Aqfaq:
I managed to skip most of the game, which is good because Dark Castle sucks.

Ghouls 'n Ghosts is a sequel to Ghosts 'n Goblins on the NES. On a quest to recapture stolen souls from Lucifer (Loki in this game), the player advances through a series of levels filled with demonic and undead creatures.

Usually, one would have to finish the game twice in order for it to end properly. Instead of doing so, the author of this movie uses a password to start off on the 2nd playthrough. Despite the game displaying "Practice" on the screen, this movie is indeed played on hardest difficulty. See the author's comments for a more thorough explanation.

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!

Shinobi 3 is a high class platformer with amazing graphics and sound. You control the ninja Musashi, who in this update has many new moves and abilities. He begins the game armed with 0 shurikens, but apparently someone felt the need to leave some conveniently in his way to use.

The author shows an extremely entertaining route featuring abuse of the Jump kick move, using wallkicks to fly up sheer cliffs, and even sacrificing lives to smash bosses.

During autoscroll sections Dammit is sure to entertain you by insulting the inept hordes of enemies, insulting the Genesis hardware itself in one special palette error case, and pulling some disappearing acts crazy enough to be worthy of a Ninja. He also made 2 minutes and 45 seconds of the previous run disappear in a cloud of smoke.

In this run of Sonic 3 & Knuckles, Sonic has decided that getting all the emeralds is the only way to go and as such powers his way through the special stages to achieve this (and a perfect ending). This run also avoids using a glitch called horizontal underflow, which is explained in the author's comments.

For those that have seen the Knuckles 100% run (or just don't like waiting around), there is a second, smaller encode that omits the emerald collection, loading/end of stage screens and removes the Hyper Sonic flash/music.

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.

Blaster Master is a fairly long game involving a random hero that jumps down a hole after his mutant frog, finds a tank, and proceeds to blow up a few bosses and rescue said frog. It's complicated.

In this movie the hero gets bored with the tank early on, skips the bosses and mostly decides to just go straight to the final boss and blow him up. The frog is saved and dissected, and Biology 101 is passed. Hooray!

This movie plays on the European version of the game, which includes a few bugs such as stopping movement by pausing and allowing double (and more) jumping. A changed zip mechanism is also in the European version which allows warping through things you really shouldn't be able to warp through.

This publication beats the previous movie by 9 seconds.

If you would like to see more of the game, we also have a warpless Blaster Master movie here that plays on the US version.

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

Donkey Kong Jr., along with Donkey Kong, were classic games that were played by millions of players on various consoles, including the NES, Atari 2600 and Game and Watch. The story is that Jumpman, now known as Mario, has captured his rival Donkey Kong and it's up to Junior to save his dad.

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

This is a 1 frame optimization of Level 4 compared to the previous movie.

EarthBound Beginnings is the first game in the Mother/EarthBound series, known simply as Mother in Japan. It was localized for a 1990 US release, but wasn't released outside Japan until 2015. During that time, the original localized title, "EarthBound", was used for the English release of Mother 2.

Long referred to as "EarthBound Zero" by fans, the game was finally given an official title for its Wii U eShop release.

This movie is done on the US prototype, which does not have the "bread crumbs" glitch used in our other movie of the game. It does, however, have a run button, which means this movie may seem faster at times, even though it's a lot longer.

- Genre: Platform
Extra Mario Bros. is a hack of the original Super Mario Bros. It is noteworthy for being a complete "Metroidvania" game built around the original SMB engine, with very few changes to the engine itself. The five areas in the game are all interconnected (via pipes, naturally), and permanent upgrades have been added to give it a more Metroid-ish feel. (Did I mention the music from Super Metroid? Because there's music from Super Metroid.)

However, despite his newfound ability to return to levels he's visited before and acquire upgrades that don't go away when he dies, Mario still cannot scroll to the left.

This movie collects all of the keys and fights the true final boss but only collects two of the upgrades.


Note: An IPS patch for the hack can be downloaded from http://tasvideos-moviefiles.googlecode.com/files/ips%2Bpatcher.zip.

- Aims for in-game time instead of real-time

Kung Fu (1985) is a simple beat-'em-up game in which the protagonist known as Thomas has 5 floors of bad guys and bosses to fight through in order to save Sylvia, his girlfriend. Unfortunately, as the final screen tells us, their happiness "does not continue long" — a common arcade trope to make the player beat the game in a second loop.

Phil bested the predecessor movie by over a second thanks to better luck manipulation and decreasing the amount of jumps.

This movie aims for lowest in-game time. The completion times for each floor are: 1552, 1558, 1552, 1545, 1550.

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

An improvement of 58 seconds arises from better acceleration techniques and strategic differences.

Delivering pizza is not normally a job one would consider dangerous.

This game is evil. It gives you power-downs constantly of which you're bound to pick one up sooner or later.

The traps and hazards in this game usually go off when they are in the middle of the screen. Because Werewolf has discovered how to walk backwards and not scroll the screen, it means that he doesn't have to deal with most of them. Also if he manages to somehow get stuck inside a wall and jumps, he will fall through it.

The game features a lot of lycanthropian acrobatics and good visuals for its time.

This is a joint collaboration between AndrewG and AnS, saving 2 minutes 25 seconds compared to the previous version. Together they quicken the boss fights, glitch up the game even more, do a little dance, and howl at the moon.

Here, the heroes thoroughly explore a dungeon to collect five pieces of the mystical equipment of the Knight of Diamonds to trade for the "Staff of Gnilda" to save the kingdom.

Yo! Noid is a game centered around a short man in a rabbit suit making his way through New York City to defeat an identical man in a different color rabbit suit for a pizza reward. The game was conceived as part of a 1980s advertising campaign for Domino's Pizza. As anyone who has played the game knows, the game is quite difficult, since the controls are sluggish, one hit kills you, and the pizza bonus games at the end can be difficult to win if you don't pick up enough useful powerups.

With some movement glitches, warps, and luck manipulation, FODA beats this game very quickly. Not only that, to make the run even harder and more impressive, he doesn't kill any enemies.

After having been resurrected by dark priest Shaft, Dracula set out to destroy Richter Belmont's home village and kidnap some of the important characters for him to rescue. One of them is Maria Renard, a 12-year-old vampire huntress who is used as the player character in the second half of the movie after getting freed by Richter.

Despite her prepubescent age, Maria is faster and stronger than Richter, and one can only guess how she managed to fall a victim to kidnappers in the first place. Unfortunately, all of her speed advantages become nullified by a lengthy cutscene following her release, making this TAS slightly longer than the Richter mode.

Castlevania: Rondo of Blood (1993) is an important milestone in the Castlevania series and a predecessor to the even more successful Symphony of the Night. This game was ported two years later to the SNES as Dracula X.

In this installment of a popular TV show, a miserable little pile of secrets known as Richter Belmont is once again called to have it at a savior mankind needs so ill. Armed with his trusty key and a question mark nicknamed 'Vampire Killer', he makes sure no candleholder remains standing in Dracula's castle. Eager to just get it over with, he plows through without as much as a slightest regard to his purple-haired girlfriend and some other people still imprisoned there. It seems what little time one has to spare in a TAS is best spent moonwalking and yelling at the screen, anyway.

A slower version of this run taking only the regular stages is available. Due to this movie being faster, that submission was cancelled, yet there are arguably more entertaining moments in the cancelled submission (the author recommends stage 4 in particular).

Contrary to the other Rondo of Blood TASes on the site, this one not only goes through the hurdles of saving three useless villagers from their prisons (with some of said prisons even resembling their regular habitats), but also plays through all the picturesque levels just to prove that Maria isn't really a suboptimal character. No videogame character fighting dark priests by stoning them to death with small white birds should ever be called suboptimal.

If you want to see a shorter run through the game, we suggest watching these: Richter any% in 23:18, Maria any% in 24:22.

This TAS features speedy completion by using the inept enemies as boosts to speed through the underworld levels. Only 2 of the weapon upgrades are ever collected and all of the story is completely skipped.

Once more, you must kill the Grandmaster Meio armed only with an insanely awesome sword and your own ninja skills. A very nice demonstration of what happens when a high-reflex game is given tool assistance.

Only the necessary levels are completed in order to reach the final boss.

Heart of the Alien is a direct sequel to the SNES game Out of This World starring Buddy, the alien ally of the main character in the previous game. After flying the pterodactyl to the ruins of his village and leaving his friend in a bed to rest, Buddy begins a search for the red-eyed alien responsible for the destruction of his village and the imprisonment of his people.

In this run, Aqfaq uses tool-assisted precision and glitches to finish this game in a little more than 5 minutes.

Who'd have thought playing Tetris could be such a Blast?

Tetris Blast is a spin on the classic Tetris formula. The new type of blocks, bomb blocks, detonate when they are part of a line that gets completed and destroy the blocks around them. A chain reaction of bomb block explosions or a carefully positioned square of four bomb blocks can take out the entire screen.

The author, Ryuto, manipulates luck and forms bomb block squares and explosion chain reactions to finish this game in just under 4 minutes.

This is the only Tetris Blast game released outside of Japan (where it is known as Bombliss). To see a run of one of the Bombliss games by the same author, watch this run.

The Animaniacs are a cartoon comedy trio, known for old school Warner Brothers style comedy mixed with some scathing political commentary.

This platformer of their namesake captures their personality well, with some comical and colorful animations. The author adds in his own techniques of walking on air and creating small scenes within the game while playing, especially during boss fights.

This game has a built in roulette, which is manipulated to always give the best result, especially invincibility when needed for tougher bosses.

One of the best (and best known) shooters of the 16-bit era, Contra 3: The Alien Wars forgoes any semblance of plot devices in favor of good old fashioned shooting and platforming with some tough as nails bosses, especially in this, the hardest mode.

Apparently not happy with an already amazing movie, Cpadolf felt the need to go on yet another black op, optimizing his distortions of space and time on the way to a 173 frame improvement.

This movie uses a 'warping' glitch to complete the game. There is also the 2-player version, which does not.

Cyborg 009 is based on the manga and anime of the same name, which began a long time ago. There are eight characters that you can use, but one of them is set and you can only choose two others for each mission.

The run uses 008 (Pyunma) and 005 (Geronimo) most of the time. 008 can jump forward quickly and swim in water, while 005 does heavy damage to bosses. Various power-ups are collected to level-up 009 (Joe) due to an event near the end of the game.

The run uses the easiest difficulty due to the final boss taking less time to beat.

If you play this game, it is recommended to level-up 009 first, and a lot.

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

Unlike in the other movie of this game, Jasmine wasn't happy with just being rescued by Aladdin; she made him spend a little time picking up some jewelry for her on the way. This movie aims to complete the game with all the red gems collected, which takes a little more time, but adds quite a bit to the entertainment value of the run. The core trick of this TAS is to abuse the parachute extensively to move faster than normal walking or jumping.

EarthBound is a great RPG, designed by Shigesato Itoi in 1994-1995, and is also known by the name Mother 2.

It is best described as "random", in a good way. The game has a great emphasis on a humor, and indeed many things in the game are almost caricatured, from subplots to characters. It also has a versatile soundtrack.

Our description for the previous movie stated, "Although this being a speedrun (tool-assisted at that), most of the plot of the game is intact...". This time around, not so much. Thanks to some collision detection bugs, including one that shows that the Skip Sandwich is a fitting name for the item in ways the developers never intended, the author is able to move around the game's areas freely, completing the bare minimum number of tasks needed to keep the final battle from locking up.

Also unlike the previous movie, this one does use a death as a shortcut. However, the teddy bear survives this time around.

Family Feud (1993) follows the premise of the American TV show of the same name. Two families are pitted against each other in a contest aimed at guessing the results of a public survey. In the first two rounds, the first family member to press a button and give a concise answer that happens to be on the survey earns points. After that, this family can continue guessing answers on the survey, with control switching to the other family on incorrect guesses. After two rounds, the family with fewer points is disqualified, and the last round allows two members of the remaining family to list several of the existing survey answers in a very short time period.

Heisanevilgenius's family, The As, ignores all that and goes with elaborate and utter nonsense instead… only to find the host accepting their answers as correct. The other family, The Halls, doesn't even get the chance to insert a word, proving the racial prejudice of the host. Watch the game and see for yourself.

If you liked how this movie abuses a text recognition system, also see the trouble that TAS tools bring to a drawing recognition system.

Note: Some answers contain coarse language.

This game has many qualities that make it a good candidate for TASing. These include soft, pleasing graphics, music that's not painful to listen to, and of course, a very speedy main character. Unfortunately, some of the game's bosses have long invulnerability periods, meaning that Zero has to wait a bit between hits and cannot spam the bosses with 30 hits per second.

The game is not meant to be quite as straightforward as it would seem by watching this movie, as the author takes many shortcuts that require extremely precise jumping. This is an improvement of well over a minute and a half due to better optimization and new shortcuts and tricks.

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.
