In this odd but colorful game for the 32X, our hero Tempo, armed with killer dance moves and a limited ability to fly, must defend the Planet Rhythmia from the evil King Dirge who is trying to sap the planet of its rhythm.

This movie is a 3 second improvement in the "pool" room of the last level. The first 14 minutes of the movie are identical.

- Contains speed/entertainment tradeoffs

- Genre: Platform
Before reminiscing about a man I knew when I was young, before rescuing a hero named Joe, there were games where you played as Joe himself! The Bionic Commando arcade game, sequel to Commando, introduces the first hero in a platform game who couldn't even jump, which spawned many sequels.

Just when you thought all the early Bionic Commando games were TAS'd and done with, Mukki brings Bionic Commando back to life, as if it were a long dead World War II dictator resurrected by a madman as part of a plan for world domination.

In this game, Mukki demonstrates grappling and kicking ability, whilst avoiding hordes of soldiers futilely attempting to prevent Joe from doing his duty and destroying their weapons of medium sized destruction.

- 2 Players

- Genre: Fighting
This is a playaround of what is considered the most popular hack of Street Fighter II - Championship Edition. The hack was found in bootlegged arcade cabinets throughout the world, surpassing the original in availability in some places.

This hack features several modifications, such as the ability to change characters mid-match, teleportation, midair special moves, and new projectile attacks. Capcom later incorporated some of these new moves into Street Fighter 2 Turbo.

In this run, the author shows off all the fighters and makes good use of some of the craziness added to the game. He also shows off quite a few glitches that are quite amusing to see.


Note: As it is widely available in stand-alone form, no patch is available or necessary.

Hocus Pocus, published by Apogee Software (developed by Moonlight Software) in 1994 sees a "puny" dropout wizard setting on a quest to collect crystals which will make him powerful. On his way, Hocus is ignoring important information given to him by Terexin while defeating enemies and bosses so that Land of Lattice will become more safe to travel. By completing four tests, he will also be accepted into the Council of Wizards and marry Popopa, daughter of Terexin who leads the Council.

IsraeliRD completes the first of these tests in 15:09.62 minutes, while the player doesn't care about the enemies and get through a horde of them without taking a lot of damage. You can check the author's comments to learn more about his techniques.

The same player did a run for the next episode as well.

Mega Man ZX Advent is the second game in the Mega Man ZX series. What's so different between the classic series and ZX Advent? First, you get to choose between a male (Grey) and a female (Ashe) character. Then, instead of stealing weapons from the bosses, the player steals the boss itself! Instead of switching between weapons, the player switches between forms using the Biometal Model A. Finally, the player has less freedom to pick the stages of his choice.

Mothrayas picks Ashe, the female character, to minimize the cutscenes and to save time.


To play the DSM file, make sure that "Enable Advanced Bus-Level Timing" is unchecked in the "Emulation settings".

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

Otocky was created by Toshio Iwai in 1987 and was only released in Japan for the Famicom Disk System. It is best described as a musical side-scrolling shoot 'em up where the primary weapon is a ball which, when fired in one of eight directions, plays different musical notes on the primary instrument quantized to the beat of the background music.

Needless to say, when such a weapon is put into the hands of a tool-assisted speedrunner, you might just find yourself humming along to the end result.

After a long hibernation meant to purge his body of the Wily Virus, Zero is awakened to save Ciel and the resistance. Zero decides to help, but what he really wants is to have some slashing fun.

Unlike the other run of this game, this run doesn't use mission skips, which means that the author had to beat every mission as fast as possible.

This improves the previous movie by 1.91.

Shining Soul is an Action RPG by Atlus. It is the first 'Shining' game to not be produced by Camelot Software Planning, and thus is not considered canon in the 'Shining' universe. However, the game serves as an internal homage to much of the 'Shining' series. All of the bosses are major villains from a previous 'Shining' game.

The author manipulates randomly-placed monuments to appear, increasing attack power as much as eight-fold during the run. Additionally, hundreds of critical attacks had to be painstakingly manipulated to allow for enemies to die in a single hit.

Shining Soul II is the last 'Shining' title to reach American shores, and the author's 5th 'Shining' TAS on the site. Unlike some previous games in the series, this game and its prequel play more like traditional Action-RPGs. This game, like its prequel, allows the player to pick a character type. In this run, the character chosen was a ninja, for his ability to use speed magic.

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

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


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

- Genre: Platform
This movie of Sonic Advance is unique as a speedrun in one aspect: Sonic moves so fast that the "camera" of the game cannot even follow him. Therefore, he is rarely seen in the movie.

On the rare occasions we get to watch Sonic, we get to enjoy seeing him moving through walls, charging up for another dash, or making short work of bosses.

Besides the super fast speed itself, the speed also provides Sonic an ability (glitch) to pass through platforms and walls under certain conditions.

Mukki's TAS improves the previous run by 30.94 seconds, thanks to new routes and glitches explained in his comments.


Note: There are two encodes available for download; the first one is the original version, and the second one is a comparison encode: you can see the original version to the left, and what you see to the right is something made with a special emulator, hacked to force the game's camera to focus on Sonic, making it much easier to follow what Mukki is doing with him. The second YouTube stream displays these views side-by-side as well.

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

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

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

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

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

This GBC game is based off the popular television series Mission: Impossible.

Following the spirit of that series, this is a stealth-based game. Supposedly tricky tasks are to be performed covertly. But in this movie, stealth is clearly not one of the author's highest priorities. It's all running through guards, as if they weren't there. Yet the player does not die.

Award - GBx TAS of 2010
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX is an updated version of an older GB game which adds color, an additional dungeon, various other minor features, and a lot of bug fixes. Link, after rescuing Hyrule (again?), sets off on a journey and subsequently shipwrecks on the mysterious Koholint Island, which has been overtaken by evil monsters which he must defeat in order to find a way back home.

Through a wide variety of glitches and general optimizations, this is now almost ten minutes faster than the previous full run of this game.

This run does not make use of a form of warp glitching, but still demonstrates that they obviously didn't fix as many bugs as they thought.

Battletoads is a classic video game by Rare for the NES, but different versions of the game were also made for many other systems, such as the Genesis and the Game Boy. All of these games are known for their comical animation style (such as gigantic fists and boots when the toads attack) and their high difficulty, essentially requiring the player to memorize the upcoming dangers to react fast enough to survive.

In this version, the player plays as the Battletoad Zitz on a quest to rescue the other two Toads, Rash and Pimple, from the Dark Queen. This game has only 9 stages, as opposed to 12 in the NES version. However, unlike the NES version of the game, there are no warps, and there is no two-player option. There are also fewer time-saving glitches. That doesn't stop Cardboard, though, from beating up tons of enemies and completing the game very quickly.

For more Battletoads madness, you can also see our movies of the NES version.

Rolan's Curse is like a simplified version of the NES Legend of Zelda with slower gameplay and more restricted game world, resulting in a primitive hack-and-slash experience. Nevertheless, there exists an interesting storyline: The kingdom of Rolan has been invaded by the forces of some evil being called Barius. However, in this movie the final boss is never actually seen. Instead of meeting Barius face to face, the hero dies while defeating the first level boss. The game then decides to freak out and end right there, declaring the rest of the story unnecessary.

This is 0.25 seconds faster than the previous movie, arising from a substantial amount of testing and optimisation.

This run has much more action than the regular mode of Super Mario Land, due to the increased amount of enemies, yet it is only slightly slower. If you liked TASs of Super Mario Land before now, wait until you see this.


Note: This movie begins from a save state from the end of regular mode in order to access hard mode. There is no other way to access it outside of a hack. We normally do not accept movies which begin from a save state.

Note: This movie requires conversion in order to be played in sync on VBA rerecording v23.

This is the second and last true Mario game for the original Game Boy. It has unique power ups like carrots and bubbles and allows the player to go through each of the worlds in any order. It also features the first appearance of Wario, who would become a staple character for Nintendo.
This is a massive 2 minute and 40 second improvement over the previous movie. The improvements in this movie were largely due to two new tricks: the pixel trick and the pipe glitch. Both saved enormous amounts of time during the run. Details on the improvements can be found in the author's submission text.

The Final Fantasy Legend, known in Japan as Makai Toushi SaGa, is a video game released for the Game Boy in December 1989 by Square Co. It is the first game in the SaGa series and the first RPG's game for the Game Boy.

However, rather than deciding to engage on a long quest of epic proportions, the author decides to just kick in the Japanese edition of the game and breeze through it in under two minutes.

- Uses death to save time

- Genre: Platform
Originally meant as a sequel to the Super Mario Land games, Wario Land eventually proved popular enough in its own right to launch its own series.

Wario, having been kicked out of Mario's castle in his first appearance, decides, in his eternal greed, to search for a statue stolen by the nefarious Captain Syrup and the Black Sugar Gang. This would normally involve questing for hidden treasures and collecting as many coins as he can possibly amass along the way.

Here, however, Wario decides this isn't worth his time and proceeds as quickly as possible towards the final confrontation — going so far as to skip entire levels and otherwise make a mockery of the game engine.

This movie is a 7:35.61 improvement over the previous movie thanks to even more level skipping and further optimization of levels.

This game was released as Turrican III for the Amiga before Factor 5 got Data East to port it to the Genesis/Mega Drive.

Like most of the previous games in this series, the protagonist has limited rolling power and limited use of super bombs. This forces the author to use some strategic choices to conquer these stages quickly, including occasionally dying to replenish bombs.

Award - Sega TAS of 2010
Ludicrous-speed bouncing around. Completed without collecting any emeralds, with both Sonic and Tails controlled by the player.

This run takes everything you know about Sonic 3 & Knuckles and turns it upside-down. It extensively uses the "scroll objects offscreen to pass through them" trick to zip and warp to places that shouldn't be reached, break bosses, and effectively skip entire stages.

It is worth noting that nitsuja and Upthorn did not directly participate in the creation of this movie; instead, marzojr incorporated several additional tricks in multiple stages and spliced them in for a total improvement of 2:14.31 seconds over his last effort at doing the same.


The second YouTube link is to the camhacked HD encode, which attempts to always keep Sonic onscreen and puts HD sprites on top of the background to make the TAS look even better. Camhacked SD downloadables are also available in the Archive collection.

The kingdom of Zebulos is once again attacked, this time by the neighboring Gedol Empire, whose ruler King Gedol decides that he can kidnap Princess Cherry as Bowser can kidnap Princess Toadstool. The rescuing hero, Sparkster, thinks that espionage is boring. So instead of infiltrating the Gedol empire by stealth, he goes in sword swinging and jetpack blazing, cutting down swaths of whatever poor lizardmen decide to get in his way.

This game is the official sequel to Rocket Knight Adventures, whereas the SNES version with the same title is some sort of spinoff. Although the control is sluggish compared to the other two games, the author generally keeps the speed and pace fast, and exploits a bunch of tricks that make some bosses fall very, very fast.

This is a 42 second improvement to the previous movie by Ferret Warlord.

Vectorman (1995) is one of the later games for Genesis; it sports multiple gameplay modes, pre-rendered 3D models and some very nice visual effects.

According to its plot, the Earth's population decided they have polluted it enough, and migrated elsewhere, leaving robots made of orbs ("orbots") behind to clean up the mess. One of the higher level orbots gets his head accidentally attached to a nuclear warhead, goes insane and usurps total control over all mechanical beings left on the planet. This is the state the main hero, orbot Vectorman, finds it in after returning from one of his garbage discharging missions.

Watch as courses covering everything from the classic windmill to a pinball table to a pastiche of Breakout are made to look absolutely trivial by masterful precision in hitting the ball.

This game is similar to Marble Madness, except that instead of controlling the ball directly, various aspects of the course are controlled instead.

Ninja Gaiden for Game Gear is quite unlike the NES version or even its cousin on the Master System. It has a similar (but simpler) feel as the Master System version, but has the wall climbing element of the NES game. But like the others, it has ninjas. And ninjas are cool.

The key to a TAS of this game is special weapon maintenance. Bosses receive double the damage when hit with special weapons, so managing the weapons used and conserving force are critical to optimizing this game.

The story of Asterix takes place in the year 50 BCE. All of Gaul has been occupied by the Romans except for a little village. Asterix and his Gallic companions live in that village, fighting the Romans. In this game, Julius Caesar has snatched Obelix, Asterix's best friend, and is about to feed him to lions! But before anyone can even blink, Asterix comes, kicks Julius' ass, and comes to the rescue of his friend!

This game is based on one of the most successful French comic book series of the same name. It has been successful since 1959, with more than 325 million comics sold worldwide.

  • All unnecessary random encounters have been manipulated into not happening
  • The player dies several times in order to get transported back to the beginning
  • Action commands are often intentionally not entered as soon as possible to manipulate critical hits and such

Gimmick! (1992) is another gem from Sunsoft, the company that brought us Ufouria and Journey to Silius. It was only released in Japan and Scandinavian countries, but eventually achieved something of a cult status thanks to its refined gameplay, as well as exceptional music and graphic design.

The plot follows a green toy on a quest to rescue a little girl from the clutch of other toys, who were rightfully upset at her forsaking them in favor of our protagonist. What these other toys can't do, however, is conjure stars to use them both as projectiles and very effective transportation devices!

This joint venture between Aglar and Hotarubi improves the previous movie by nearly a whole minute thanks to a lot of new and refined tricks and shortcuts. This run doesn't collect the special items required to access the 7th level, and thus gets a bad ending. However, we have another run that attains the best ending for your viewing pleasure!

The game cartridge of Gimmick! contains a special microchip, FME7, which extends the number of sound channels in the game from 5 to 8, creating a more melodic soundtrack than in most other NES games.

'Lagrange Point' (ラグランジュポイント), is a very late (as in, released in 1991) Japanese-only RPG produced for the NES. This game is notable because Konami teamed up with readers of Family Computer Magazine (ファミリーコンピュータマガジン) to form a group, called 芸夢工房 (geimukoubou, art dream workshop), in order to make this game. The readers were permitted to design the characters, monsters, events, message-texts, music, the title-screen, and such. With enhanced sound for the NES due to Konami's VRC7 sound generator Integrated Circuit, the game is considered a masterpiece to many Japanese people.

The story is about a pilot, Jin (also known as Gin), who is exploring a biohazard outbreak at a space colony, linked to the disappearance of Dr. Stolte. He arrives, only for the spaceship to be attacked. The effect of the outbreak soon becomes clear.

More information on the game can be found on the Japanese Wikipedia (machine translation).

The MKV has been continued until past 1:50:00 to show a secret message after the end.


This run of a Japanese-only RPG with an unofficial translation by Aeon Genesis (the run won't sync in it) features commentary in the form of Advanced SubStation Alpha soft subtitles created by FractalFusion and the author, neo_omegon. If you use MPlayer to view the MKV, add the -ass option to the commandline to view the subtitles with their proper layout.

With some heavy support from a bot and the help of an unusual glitch on two tables, the game is completed in record time.

The friction of the pool table can be adjusted; in this run it is left alone. See also the frictionless run. Reading the submission text is recommended.

The emulator movie requires FCEU 0.98.15 or an earlier version of FCEU. On later versions of FCEU, the last table desyncs.

Lunar Ball, known as Lunar Pool in the US, is, as the name suggests, a pool game for the NES with the curious ability to adjust the friction of the surface of the pool table. Indeed, it is quite possible to play with no friction, and while this may sound easy, it actually proves to be impossibly difficult due to removing the major obstacle from the balls just continuing to roll forever, causing the game to never end.

With some heavy support from a bot (and massive loss of sanity), the author manages the nigh-impossible feat of making it all the way to the end of all 60 tables even in the face of this overwhelming opposition.

Reading the submission notes is highly advisable to explain some of the oddities such as the occasional pocketing of the cue ball. (In short: The cue ball is deliberately pocketed in order to avoid getting a perfect score on every level because the point counter would take unbearably long to tick all the points, up to a half minute per level.)

For more heavy optimization of pool tables, see also the run of this game with the default friction level.

Meet Paul -- A guy who starves to death five minutes after a grand meal. He also feels experienced from doing trivial things like entering a store or delivering mail.

While many heroes would depend on hours of fighting for experience, Paul instead gets his experience from those trivial things in order to defeat Abadon in a timely manner. Best ending requires all such trivial tasks done, ensuring you see Paul gaining experience from delivering a letter or talking to a tree.

Along the way, there are vicious enemies who beat up Paul. Being in a hurry, Paul doesn't stop for them, preferring to use the UNKNOWN spell to patch himself up. Normally this has a high chance of killing Paul in some of the most gruesome or comical ways possible, but instead it is manipulated to heal him.

On this site, we make perfect movies, and then we surpass them. Of course, if we can surpass them, they were not perfect in the first place, but who would have known?

When "perfection" is defined as "as fast as possible", it requires some sacrifices. Indeed, this movie sacrifices a lot in the playability of the game. Full of tricks to pass through walls, tricks to avoid mandatory battles, tricks to pass through enemies relatively unharmed, tricks to acquire weapon refills in little time — there is very little in this movie left that resembles normal playing. Even death is used as a viable playing strategy that saves time. All of the tricks are still performed by the means of mere controller input, even though significant portions of the input were calculated by a computer program.

This movie is a considerable improvement of 3:04.39 to the previous movie; this is mainly due to a new technique which tricks the game into calling an 'end of level' object.

Of course, upon watching this movie, one does have to question something... is it Mega Man saving the world? Or Dr. Wily trying to save it from absolute destruction?

Mendel Palace is an action-puzzle game. When playing in real-time, it becomes more action than puzzle, and when TASing, it becomes more puzzle than action. The idea is to shove your opponents into the walls of the arena by flipping over ground tiles. This is harder than it looks, since the enemies often approach in swarms and can kill you with one touch.

Flipping can also reveal some other tile types. For instance, the sun tile flips over everything else, which often cleans up the arena in a hurry. However, there are also extra enemy spawn areas that can be uncovered, especially in the last levels. For more details, see the run's submission comments.

DarkKobold beats the game in just over 19 minutes by using 2 players at the same time.

This popular hack for Rockman 2 contains a wide variety of new bosses, weapons, levels, graphics, and music, going far beyond the capabilities of the original game.

Two versions of this hack exist - "normal" mode and "hard" mode, with the primary difference being no mercy invincibility on hard mode.

This run uses hard mode. The normal run is obsoleted despite being around 2 minutes faster due to playing on hard.

Rygar is an action game involving a hero with a shield as a weapon. Normally, the hero must obtain items, such as a grappling hook, to be able to explore the world of Garloz, and he must also defeat five bosses to gain access to the final area. However, these requirements can be circumvented with glitches. Indeed, this run kills no bosses except the final boss and does very little leveling.

In contrast to the any% run and the warpless run, which use the European version of Rygar, this movie uses the American version. The two ROM versions have some different glitches. For more details about the ROM choice, as well as some background explaining what in the world is going on here, see the movie comments as well as our Rygar tricks page.

Shatterhand is a bit like Batman. However, Shatterhand is longer, has no walljumps, and is a lot laggier. On the other hand, in this game, the main character can buy a powerup to give him a cool brown vest, doubling his punching power, and this vest lasts until the player takes damage three times (it even lasts between stages).

This movie by Cardboard is about 24 seconds faster than the previous version by JXQ, largely due to decreased lag.

This Star Wars game is quite versatile. It features a sort of overworld, optional items and quests, a lot of platformer action, some first-person spaceship shooting and you even get to blow up the Death Star! You can't see all of that in this movie, but it's very entertaining nonetheless. The game's plot is based on the first Star Wars movie (Episode IV), and it even features some of the movie's awesome music.

This run improves the previous movie by almost two minutes thanks to optimized movement and a new shortcut.

This movie aims for the fastest possible time to get a score of 999999 in this game. A surprising 17.53 seconds have been shaved off the previous movie through the discovery of a new glitch.

It warps directly to the 18th level and fills half of the field quickly to be able to operate short distances in the top part of the field. From there on, it only gets tetrises (4-line clearings) until the score is maxed out.

A glitch involving pressing several directional buttons at once is used to manipulate luck for the next pieces. Flickering of the next piece block and piece in play results. Of course, the fun doesn't stop there, the L blocks also have their say in getting tetrises.

For the record, this is the fastest speed the NES game is capable of. For more extreme Tetris fun, please see movies from Arika Online.

- Playaround

- Genre: Puzzle
To the average player, Tetris is a fast-paced action/puzzle blend where reflexes become a huge factor as pieces pile up and speed increases dramatically. For one with perfect reflexes, however, it's no longer a challenge of 'where does the next piece go to make lines / avoid piling up?' so much as 'where can I put the next piece to make things look the most interesting?'.

This run exemplifies that philosophy, exploiting the ability to manipulate the next piece that appears to the fullest in the service of creating a pattern which would be nigh impossible to duplicate in real world conditions.

If you thought that TASing was only about speed, look no further than this example to prove otherwise.

Of all the challenging ways to play Legend of Zelda that people have attempted on a NES console, one of the most famous is the "swordless" challenge. In this challenge, the player must beat all of the game, up until the final boss Ganon, without using a sword. It is not possible to damage Ganon without a sword however, so many swordless runs reach Ganon's room to die there.

In order to actually complete the game, Baxter does pick up a sword and kills Ganon. However, the sword is only obtained shortly before attempting the final level, and even then, the sword is not used until absolutely necessary. In the meantime, sit back and watch a run which relies heavily on luck manipulation and effective bomb usage to beat the game very quickly. For more details, see the author's comments.

This is a 86-second improvement over the previous movie by jprofit22.

The Legend of Zelda (ゼルダの伝説) is an adventure game that needs no introduction to most NES players.

It is a large game that normally takes days to beat, but at TASVideos, we often reduce games to the minimum necessary in order to complete them.

This is the fifth The Legend of Zelda TAS at this site (not counting the alternate movies), and is ~85 seconds faster than the previous movie, largely due to better optimization and manipulation of item drops.

Bloody Wolf is an Arcade port of a Heavy Barrel-esque game. The goal is to rescue the president, and then rescue the man who rescued the president, due to insufficient leg room in the rescue helicopter.

In this run, the author bunny hops through the game, throws grenades at everything, and dies for no apparent reason.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Platform
Award - PCE TAS of 2010
Bonk, a young caveman with a big noggin, intended to become the TurboGrafx-16's flagship character, starred in three games, Bonk's Adventure, Bonk's Revenge, and Bonk III.

Since the system was generally considered a commercial failure, the first two games were ported to other systems like the Nintendo Entertainment System and the Game Boy, and two original games in the series were even made on the Super Nintendo.

In his debut, Bonk's Adventure, you play as him on his quest to rescue Princess Za, a small pink and cute little reptile, from the evil King Drool, a huge and ugly tyronnosaurus.

Jerfo completes this quest in only 24 minutes, by making Bonk fly over most stages while he spins himself in the air, bouncing himself on enemies. Make sure you're ready to hear that spinning sound over and over again!

Dungeon Explorer is based off of Gauntlet, but adds a plot, bosses, magic spells and RPG elements. Notably, it also one-ups Gauntlet by allowing for five players.

The author races through the dungeons with all five players, making short work of bosses. The five characters were selected for their high starting agility, and include a fighter (blue), a warlock (purple), an elf (green), a bard (orange), and a thief (red).

Also, the only exit that matters is the last one used by a player, and the author uses this extensively to use the fastest character, the thief, to run when an earlier exit is available for the other characters to use.


A technical commentary with extra features by the author is available here.

Ninja Spirit began life as an arcade game and since then has received many ports, including a Game Boy version and this version. It would be a stock platform game but for the ability to have up to two 'spirits' which behave like the options from Gradius.

This run is played on Arcade mode, where the character dies in one hit and bosses are stronger; the other available mode (appropriately titled PCE mode) allows taking more than one hit and is overall easier. People familiar with the game should be able to appreciate the difference, as Arcade mode is extremely challenging.

Azure Dreams is an RPG random dungeon crawler where the main character, Koh, can recruit familiars and level them up in the 40-floor Monster Tower, while gaining items and riches. He can also help the local town and romance some girls.

As can be seen from the movie time, none of this occurs in this TAS. It's just one naked dash to the top and a whole bunch of fortuitous circumstances. Luck manipulation was used on almost every floor to ensure that elevators and helpful traps are strategically located.

Should you decide to play Azure Dreams, this is definitely the wrong way to play the game.

This is the second in a series of seminal platformers for the PlayStation, with very similar gameplay to its predecessor.

A normal run of this game takes a rather long time to complete. However, by using a bug that corrupts the memory when jumping on top of an unbreakable box, the author gathers the crystals necessary to advance to the next set of stages unbelievably quickly, leaving only the bosses to make quick work of.


Note for viewers: In order to be sync-stable, a sound plugin with less than perfect sound quality needed to be used, so do not be alarmed if the sound is not flawless. However, using a different plugin was possible for the introduction and the ending.

The eighth entry in the Mega Man series is very similar to the preceding games, especially its direct predecessor (in light of being the second entry in the franchise released for the PSX, the first being a port of X3). Once again, Mega Man takes on eight Robot Masters and goes on to raid Wily's fortress.

If you're here for the plot, though, you're missing the point - instead enjoy the impossibly fast action and nifty glitch abuse in this run of the longest presently-TASable game in the main series to date.

Note: The credits are missing due to an emulator glitch. For those who are interested in seeing the credits, they can be watched here.

Capcom decided to make some easy money, so they recycled parts of Mega Man X5, threw in overly difficult trial-and-error gameplay, made almost everything an obstacle course, and called it Mega Man X6.

This run by Rolanmen1 and FractalFusion plays on the hardest difficulty, Xtreme, and uses both X and Zero. The physics of Zero's sword make it the ideal boss killer, however some bosses have unavoidable invincibility periods, so X is sometimes used to attack during these periods. Some new tricks like duck dashing and saber climbing help save 19 seconds over the previous movie.

If you want to see a run that plays through all of the stages, see this run.

In true platformer-sequel style, Spyro the Dragon's vacation is interrupted by a dinosaur-riding sorcerer by the name of Ripto invading the world of Avalar, who naturally needs to be stopped. Since vacation is the paramount concern of Spyro, this is naturally done as quickly as possible without any concern for the well-being of Avalar.

This run aims to beat the game as fast as possible while collecting 14 talismans (the minimum normally necessary to be able to fight Ripto). We also have a run that beats the game even faster by bypassing these items.

The author has also done a run for the first Spyro game.


A sound plugin with less-than-perfect sound reproduction (in particular during cutscenes like the ending cinematic, which are largely silent) is necessary for the run to sync; do not be alarmed if this affects your enjoyment of the movie.

Earthworm Jim is the unlikely story of an earthworm who finds a suit with super powers and goes on a rampage to protect Earth and his puppy Peter(?).

This movie improves the first run of this game, which was done on the Genesis version, by 16.94 seconds. However, the actual improvement is much larger since the Special Edition contains additional levels that are also played through in this TAS.

This game (along with Pocket Monsters: Red) is the Japanese version of the first generation of Pokémon games and the first ever Pokémon game.

This run, a ten frame improvement over the previous version, abuses a glitch that was fixed in later releases of Pocket Monsters (Pokémon) that allows a player to warp freely through the world. Victory is achieved in a matter of minutes with this route. Normally, the game takes well over an hour at the fastest to finish.

To see a more substantial run of the first generation of Pokémon, watch this movie. For a less substantial run (which also demonstrates that they didn't fix all the glitches in later versions), watch this one.


Note: This movie requires VBA rerecording v20, as it does not sync on any other version.

This is the most famous game in the Alex Kidd series, due in no small part to frequently being bundled with the Master System (and being built in to some versions of the console).

In this game, Alex Kidd discovers he is the prince of Radaxian, and his father, the king, has been kidnapped, allowing the tyrant Janken to claim power. The game details Alex's efforts to dethrone Janken (surprisingly, his father is not tracked down until a later game in the series).

Few other games allow mini-bosses to be defeated by playing rock-paper-scissors. In fact, the name "Janken" is a reference to rock-paper-scissors.

This is an improvement of 49.22 seconds over the previous run due to use of new routes, glitches, and other optimizations.

This is the final game of the Alex Kidd series, once Sega's flagship series. As the title suggests, this is a bit of a departure from the other games in the series and borrows concepts heavily from the Shinobi games.

Here, Alex Kidd's girlfriend has been kidnapped and he needs to go rescue her. In addition to his bizarre ability to use poles and ropes to turn into a fireball, he also apparently has the ability to use ladders to warp through solid walls.

This is an improvement of 12.6 seconds over the previously published run.

Hokuto no Ken is one of many video games based on the long-running manga Fist of the North Star (北斗の拳, Hokuto no Ken). This game follows Kenshiro across a world devastated by nuclear war as he journeys to rescue his girl, Julia, from his rival, Shin. To beat Shin's seemingly unstoppable army, Kenshiro uses the secret fighting technique hokutoshinken to twist his opponents' muscles until they literally explode.

The author, arukAdo, goes through this game very quickly by flying over most of the levels and beating up the bosses quickly. (This "warp" is allowed whenever you beat the previous stage's boss without losing any health. A similar warp gimmick occurs in the bonus stages of Mighty Bomb Jack.)

The original Phantasy Star is one of the pioneers of console RPGs, featuring fully traversible overworld maps, random enemy encounters, and turn-based battles. It was also one of the first games to feature a female protagonist.

One peaceful day in Algol, the benevolent King Lassic decides to convert to a new religion. Unfortunately, this new faith turns him into a cruel dictator who silences all who go against him. When Alis' brother tries to rebel, he is killed by Lassic's robot-cops. After seeing this, Alis sets out to stop him, not only to get revenge, but also to liberate the people from the King's oppressive rule.


This movie contains long leveling-up sequences from 47:26-1:09:40 and 1:16:56-1:40:45. You may want to skip them.

Breath of Fire was Capcom's first traditional RPG. It follows a boy named Ryu, one of the last surviving members of an ancient race with the ability to transform into mighty dragons, as he searches the world for his sister. Along the way, Ryu meets other warriors who share his quest and comes into conflict with the Dark Dragon Clan, a militaristic empire who seeks to take over the world by reviving a mad goddess.

Using a whole lot of planning and luck manipulation, janus completes this long game in just under four and a quarter hours.

Watch as two Final Fantasy games, V and VI (VI is also III in North-American publication), are beaten with one controller's input. Since FFVI takes longer to beat than FFV, the FFV run also beats a few optional bosses which are not fought in the single-game run of FFV. The two games finish at the same time.

Since FFV is only available in Japanese, FFVI is also played with the Japanese version. The (J) version of FFVI also has an equipment glitch which is not present in the (U) version. Otherwise, this run of FFVI is quite similar to our single-game FFVI movie.

For more details, we suggest you read the submission comments.

In this superplay, watch in awe as a team is forced to score on its own goal ("OH NO! OWN GOAL!?"), the scoreboard mysteriously records extra goals that were never scored (and even rolls backwards at one point), and the very laws of physics themselves seem to get completely broken.

Kirby is a spherical character, so naturally it makes sense that he should be whacked around like a golf ball. A ball that can absorb the powers of enemies and use them to his advantage, of course!

This run aims for best score, then fastest time. A lot of hole-in-ones are scored, even at great time expense.

Note that there is a second series of courses which are similar to the original set. These are played as well for sport, before attacking the final boss and winning.

This run is 1:52.25 minute faster than snc's previous TAS. There's no improvement in the number of hole-in-ones, but his secondary goal is done significantly faster!

Once again, it's up to Mega Man to destroy Dr. Wily's latest army of Robot Masters, only this time on the SNES. You would think poor old Wily would learn from his past six mistakes, however this isn't so. On the up-side, we get another superb TAS of this famous series.

This is an improvement of approximately 30 seconds of in-game time thanks to some new glitches, including using the Rush Coil to wall climb and abusing Noise Crush to instantly kill some bosses.

This version plays on the North American version of Mega Man 7 whereas the previous movie plays on the Japanese version. This change affects times outside of the player's control but which still get counted towards the movie's length, making this movie appear longer than the previous movie.

Every 300 years, the Star of Death blocks the sun and all newborn lives die. No living thing could escape this fate. But one day, a baby survived, grew up, became the Devil King, and took over the world. He even opened the Abyss Gate and released the devil lords within before suddenly vanishing, leaving the world under the control of the four devil lords.

300 years later, the Death Eclipse hit the world again, and one baby survived again. This child grew up and became the Holy King, and with the support of many friends, drove the four demon lords back to the Abyss and resealed the Abyss Gate. It is now 10 years after the next Death Eclipse, and the whole world is eagerly watching for the new child of destiny. Will it be a Devil King or a Holy King?

You can play through the story controlling any one of the eight main characters - Julian, Monica, Mikhael, Harid, Katarina, Thomas, Elena, or Sarah. The story is common for all eight characters, and they often join together and share the same piece of the story.

The author, knbnitkr, completes the game in only 21:59.65 minutes by using a materialization bug to glitch out the game and skip right to the last dungeon. For more information about this bug, see the author's comments.

Red Alarm is a shooter which frequently draws comparison to Star Fox, save that it is full 3D (instead of being confined to a single path); in this respect it is perhaps more comparable to the unreleased Star Fox 2. There are six stages, each ending with a boss.

The author frequently moves diagonally; this allows for faster motion than simply flying straight forward.

One of the few games for the Virtual Boy which actually offers a first-person perspective, Teleroboxer bears many similarities to the Punch-Out!! games — except it's substantially easier to manipulate. Indeed, it's possible to effectively autofire punches thanks to distinct controls being used for the player's two fists, which leads to ridiculously quick defeats.

Virtual Boy Wario Land was a platformer released for the Virtual Boy system in 1995. The main objective of the game is to traverse the 14 levels and find a hidden key in order to open up the next level. There are treasures hidden along the way; this TAS collects none of them and thus achieves the "bad ending".

This is an improvement of 40 seconds to the previous movie, due mainly to obtaining a powerup much earlier in the run.

See also the 100% run which collects all treasures to get the best ending.

Virtual Boy Wario Land was a platformer released for the Virtual Boy system in 1995. The main objective of the game is to traverse the 14 levels and find a hidden key in order to open up the next level. There are treasures hidden along the way; this TAS collects them all and therefore achieves the best ending.

We also have a run that forgoes hunting for treasure and simply gets to the end as fast as possible.

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.
