Spider-Man: Web of Fire, one of the last games to be released on the ill-fated 32X, follows our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man's battle with the evil forces of the neo-Nazi organization H.Y.D.R.A.

This is an improvement of 24.58 seconds over the previous run due primarily to a new glitch allowing Spidey to pass through walls.

Award - Arcade TAS of 2011
Metal Slug X (2001) is a remixed version of Metal Slug 2, the second installment of an immensely popular run'n'gun series released on the Neo Geo MVS. The games are notable for incredibly detailed pixel graphics, fluid animation, and good humor; but the real key to their longevity is, of course, their high difficulty as far as survival goes.

This is x2poet's 16.42 seconds improvement over the previous movie, despite now using the hardest difficulty setting. One notable improvement is the use of both players, compared to one in the obsoleted run.

You can also see more of x2poet's Metal Slug work by looking at his runs from Metal Slug, Metal Slug 3, Metal Slug 4 and Metal Slug Advance.

Yippie-ki-yay!

In Spinmaster, known in Japan as Miracle Adventure (ミラクルアドベンチャー), you play as Johnny and Tom, two treasure seekers. They have to save Johnny's girlfriend and gather map pieces in order to find the biggest treasure in the world! Along the way, they must fight past lots of quirky henchmen, large bosses, and more, all accompanied by cartoony graphics and stereotypical cowboy voice clips.

In this game, Johnny and Tom can use several different types of weapons, such as the elements of ice, fire, and thunder. They can collect a limited number of super attacks, denoted by the letter "B" under their health bars, to hurt everything on the screen and damage bosses heavily. Also, health does not refill between levels.

If you want to see another Arcade game involving two treasure hunters fighting lots of enemies, be sure to check out x2poet's run of Top Hunter: Roddy & Cathy.

Formerly known as Halloween Harry, Alien Carnage follows our hero Harry as he single-handedly fights off an invasion of aliens intent on zombifying the populace while rescuing a large number of hostages they have taken. It is fast-paced at the general expense of control quality.

The original creators, John Passfield and Apogee Software, generously released the game as freeware in 2007 and it can be downloaded from here.

This run by Ilari plays through all four "missions" (episodes) back-to-back, as playing through the first three missions is required to unlock the fourth.

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 second of these tests in 13:48.61 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 first episode as well.

Space Quest IV: Roger Wilco and the Time Rippers is the fourth installment of the Space Quest adventure series, and the first Space Quest game with point-and-click gameplay, as compared to its text-based predecessors. In this game, Roger Wilco is thrown into the future at Space Quest XII, and must stop Vohaul, whose consciousness lives inside another person. To do so, he must time-travel within the future (Space Quest X and XII) and to the past (Space Quest I) to gain information needed to achieve this goal.

The author, c-square, completes this game using major sequence breaks that are almost impossible to perform unassisted without abusing saves. To help with this TAS, the source code of JPC-rr was modified to support mouse input fully. See the submission text for details.

Brain Age (also known as Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training) is a puzzle game designed on the premise of exercising your brain. In this run, for example, the idea is to solve a series of simple mathematical puzzles.

And yet, the answers given... are not exactly what you'd expect.

The same author of the previous run brings you a set of 51 new ... answers, with extra time taken to provide you, the viewer, with the greatest possible attention to detail. Additionally, the increased detail provides a higher level of difficulty, to prevent the number recognition from checking the answer before the image is complete.

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

"You can't hit me."

Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia, the third game in the series for the DS, takes a different direction from its direct predecessors in that it is more of a stage-based game, similar to the earliest entries in the series, rather than the "Metroidvania"-style first established by Symphony of the Night.

This run plays as Albus, only available as a character after the player has cleared the game as Shanoa. Watch in awe as he beats down this difficult game with reality warping abilities and flaming kicks.

Rome has conquered Gaul and put a wall around the last village of resistance. Asterix and Obelix decide to tour the Roman Empire and collect souvenirs in order to show Caesar the futility of walls. It's hard to get the story from this TAS, however, because they fly through the levels so quickly, absorbing damage and rarely bothering to fight back. Though, they do take some breaks to participate in local sports. After all, if you're trying to send a message to Caesar, why not beat his athletes in one Olympic event—or all of them?

This is a really, really fast TAS through Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance played with Maxim, who is only available after the game is beaten once. Most of the game is glitched through by being stuck in different walls, so it's hard to explain what happened in this run; see it for yourself.

Fire Emblem is the seventh game in the series of strategy RPGs, and the first to be given a release outside Japan. When Eliwood discovers his father is missing, he sets out to find him, but what he discovers is far more amazing and terrifying than he ever imagined.

Kururin Paradise is the sequel to Kuru Kuru Kururin. Once again you control the Helirin, but this time you have a small measure of control over its rotation. This extra control allowed Ryuto to create a movie that can aim for fastest time without taking damage.

This is the first Mega Man Zero game in the series for the Game Boy Advance. Unlike most other Mega Man games, Zero really is not in the mood for fighting all the bad guys, and decides to call it quits in the first few missions so that he can skip ahead to the last stages.

This run beats the previous run by 4.56 seconds due to a new trick called the "spike jump" which allows Zero to climb on the spikes without taking damage.

If you liked this movie, be sure to check out the all stages run.

The third game in the Megaman Zero subseries takes place two months after its predecessor.

It features mostly the same game play as its predecessors, but with a different Cyber Elf system and customizable armor. Also new are the Secret Disks, which can be analyzed for information about the series, enemies, items, and the characters.

Unlike the other run, this run aims to collect all disks, all sub-tanks, and all Ex-Skills. It also gets a special rank when the final stage ends (Disk Capturer) and unlocks Ultimate Mode afterward.

Mortal Kombat: Tournament Edition is a standalone game which acts as a sort of expansion to the GBA version of Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance. It has different characters, better AI and some bug fixes compared to the original GBA game.

Here, AKheon plays the Tag Team mode, where he chooses a team of two fighters to fight against other teams. The characters can be swapped at any time during a match.

If you're looking for a run that abuses a lot of crazy glitches in a handheld fighting game, then look no further, you have it right here!

The author also did tool-assisted playarounds on Mortal Kombat II (Game Boy version) and Mortal Kombat Advance.

Mortal Kombat Advance is a port of the classic Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, for a handheld console. A terrible one at that. This one features a different engine, full of glitches, lousy controls and an even cheaper AI.

AKheon makes the in-game fighters look like idiots by glitching the game in a lot of possible ways!

Pokémon: Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald form the third generation of Pokémon, after Pokémon: Gold and Silver. Noticeable differences include the graphics and interface, Pokémon abilities, and running shoes that allow the player to move around much faster in the outside overworld before getting the bike.

FractalFusion and GoddessMaria complete the game in a mere 1:31:45, 3 minutes and 22 seconds faster than the previous Sapphire Version run. Instead of using Machop/Machoke, this run now uses Taillow/Swellow, which is obtained far earlier in the game, also has Guts as an ability, and has powerful moves early on and throughout. The movie also uses advanced methods of luck manipulation with the help of RNG analysis. For more details, see the submission text.


Note: To play the vbm, you need to have Real Time Clock on and use Flash 128k as Save Type. Real Time Clock is for sync, while Flash 128k is to prevent the game from giving a white screen.

RoboCop for the GBC is a top-down shooter made by Mirage Interactive and Titus. The game itself consists of large maze levels and the slow movement pace of RoboCop. The difficulty in this game can be very obnoxious.

In this run, the author makes usage of a simple L+R glitch which doubles RoboCop's speed without affecting camera speed if three directions at once are pressed. In addition to this, it even allows him to warp to the next screen immediately when he catches up to the edge of the camera view while performing this glitch, and if there is an adjacent room to the direction where he's going. This allows him to get through most troublesome walls. The author provides detailed comments which help understanding what is going on.

Final Fantasy Adventure is the first game of the Seiken Densetsu (聖剣伝説) series, but it does contain some classic Final Fantasy elements. The series is probably best known for the SNES game Secret of Mana. This game was later remade on the Game Boy Advance as Sword of Mana. Its gameplay resembles that of a The Legend of Zelda game, but with level building.

In this run, Touch-me utilizes a glitch to warp across the map, cutting down the completion time by a lot compared to the warpless run. He also improves the previous run in this category by 51:22.56 minutes thanks to a big new warp glitch that allows him to reach the top of the Tower of Gemma early.

Bible Adventures is one of many unlicensed games produced by Wisdom Tree. This particular game offers three modes of play.

This run plays through the "Baby Moses" mode, of how his mother "got a papyrus basket for him ... and placed the child in it and put it ... along the bank of the Nile". This apparently entails avoiding a horde of enemies in the process.

Thus, before Moses can let his people go, Aglar goes as fast as possible by taking a page from the wrong Bible book and walking on water (wouldn't that have made crossing the Red Sea just a little bit easier?) as well as directly through many of the enemies and obstacles preventing one from reaching the right edge of the level.

Contra: Hard Corps is the only game of the Contra series released on the Genesis / Mega Drive console. In this game, you get to choose between four characters, each with different abilities and weapons.

This game has four completely different final stages, each with a different ending, depending on the choices you make earlier. This run takes the second quickest path leading to one of these final stages. There are also runs which get the faster secret ending and the best ending.

The Japanese version was chosen because for some reason it gives the players a health bar, allowing them to take some damage without dying.

Fang is used due to a glitch that allows him to deliver fully charged D weapon shots without taking time to charge them.

Fast bouncing around. This is a run of Sonic the Hedgehog which avoids zipping (gaining a large speed boost from being inside terrain), unlike the other run of this game. Therefore, most levels cannot be skipped, and instead have to be traversed using a more normal route, although the author still finds a couple of alternative methods to take shortcuts (it is hard to define hard rules to ban all glitches). In this run, the game is completed without collecting the Chaos Emeralds.

Squirrel King is a platform video game produced, without license from Sega, by the Taiwanese developer Gamtec for the Mega Drive. Gamtec is also responsible for the development of a number of other games, including many for the Gamate handheld system.

It appears to be loosely based upon Capcom's Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers video games for the Nintendo Entertainment System, sharing its gameplay mechanics, although it is not licensed by Disney. As in the aforementioned game, the main character must throw crates at the enemies in order to defeat them.

This game was eventually used as the basis for the unofficial Mega Drive Super Mario World game. Some of the levels in this game have their background music based on that of the Super NES video game Donkey Kong Country.

A short TAS featuring an absurdly fast character with bad sound effects in a broken game. This version is over 2 minutes faster than the previous version due to a warp glitch. This glitch allows the player to start a level at the same X and Y coordinates as the player had when the previous level ended.

007 is ready for his incredibly popular first person shooter for the Nintendo 64. Rather than taking the usual stealthy strategy, secret agent 007 treats this first person shooter like any other and runs around shooting things with a complete disregard for human life, including his own.

While this run seems to be slower than the previous run, it actually plays all the regular levels faster and also plays two additional bonus levels!

Award - N64/Wii TAS of 2011Award - TAS of 2011
In the direct sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Link is back to being a lone boy without a fairy. One day, he is attacked by Skull Kid and his two fairies, Tatl and Tael, and they steal his ocarina. After pursuing Skull Kid, he is transformed into a Deku Scrub. Link continues pursuing Skull Kid all the way to the Clock Town (now with the help of Tatl the fairy, a more 'in yo face' version of Navi).

This TAS of the game is the result of three years of hard work and many restarts due to new discoveries. It features many never-before-seen tricks and glitches, and completes every dungeon without getting a single boss key. Everything is done out of order, in ways that will amaze the viewer and keep them on the edge of their seat the entire way through, including a whole new way of warping between the areas in the game's over-world, and a new method of traveling that makes even the longest stretches in the game seem tiny.

The author beats the game in two 3-day cycles (the previous route used three), and does so in a way that puts every past attempt at a 6-day challenge to shame.

Note: There are encodes of higher resolutions in the discussion thread. Also, if you know the cutscenes of this game by memory at this point and would rather watch an encode without them, it's your lucky day.

Battle Kid: Fortress of Peril may look old, but it's actually released in 2010! It's still possible to buy a new NES cartridge of this game online!

Mainly inspired by the PC game I Wanna Be the Guy, this game is classic platforming action, where anything can kill the player in one single hit. While it's not unfair (as opposed to I Wanna Be the Guy), it's still really hard.

Aglar collects every item and key before going to the last area, and takes the right path to get to the best ending, all of this on the hardest difficulty possible and without taking any damage!

Award - NES TAS of 2011
Battletoads (1991) is a futuristic beat 'em up known for its graphics and extreme difficulty. The story is that the sexy Dark Queen who wants to rule the universe has kidnapped Princess Angelica and a toad named Pimple. Two other toads, Rash and Zitz, attempt to rescue them and defeat the Dark Queen.

Maybe you thought Battletoads was a game full of amphibians, but it is actually full of bugs. Those beta testers really should have spent a little more time on this game...

In this run, feos and MESHUGGAH beat the previously fastest TAS of this game by 2:22.16, this time using 2 players instead of 1. You will laugh, you will cry, but most of all, you will wonder how in the world they broke this game so much. Do yourself a favor and read the authors' notes.

To see the game broken even further with the use of memory corruption, watch this run.

Bio Force Ape was a game developed by SETA set to be released in 1991 for the Nintendo Entertainment System. After SETA folded, a prototype cart was picked up by Lost Levels, who then released it to the public. In this prototype, you take control of a genetically altered super chimpanzee with pro wrestling-style moves and guide him through a hi-tech maze to rescue his adopted family. Why wasn't this released again?

In this run, the author, RT-55J, tries to complete the game in the fastest in-game time. To do this, he uses many exploits that might have been removed if this game was actually released. For more details, as always, please see the author's notes.

Linus Spacehead's Cosmic Crusade is an unlicensed Nintendo game by Codemasters, which is also available licensed on the Genesis as Cosmic Spacehead. The game features a mix of adventure and side-scrolling action.

Here is the plot, according to Wikipedia:

Linus is an alien from the planet Linoleum who crashed into the legendary planet Earth. After returning home and expecting a hero's welcome, Linus soon found his fellow Linomen were skeptical of the existence of the so-called "planet Earth" and decides to return to it, this time with a camera. However, he is flat on the planets' currency, Linobucks, and must deal across the planet to get a new cosmic car and a camera. In his adventures, Linus deals himself out of Linoleum, quashes a robot revolution in Detroitica and gets gas from an abandoned space station.

Marble Madness is an isometric game similar in its style to Snake Rattle 'n Roll. The objective in these two games is quite different, though. In this game, the player must roll a marble from one point to another. This is, of course, not as easy as it sounds, and certainly not as easy as it looks in this movie.

Aglar improved adelikat and Deign's movie by 5.10 seconds.

A second encode is available using a camera hack to focus on the marble, which subtly alters the gameplay. Also, you can see this movie played back on an actual NES!

Mark is on his way back home from a baseball game when an alien gargoyle called Bert summons him to save his home planet from evil monsters using his almighty baseball bat.

In this very strange game, you must defeat bosses in each stage before obtaining a key to the next stage. The player normally controls Mark, but by picking up a pill from monsters, Bert can be used. Bert can fly and shoot powerful shots, but he only lasts a short while unless another pill is obtained.

This is the fifth effort to tackle this game and the first to be published.

Nuts & Milk is a platform game deriving influences from a number of famous Nintendo games, including Kirby (puffy pink blob as a protagonist), Mario Bros. (green and red fireballs), Donkey Kong Jr. (spring platforms, jumping from ladder to ladder and fruits) and Wrecking Crew (barrels).

This improvement of 15.22 seconds over the previous published movie collects all the fruit in all stages, including the bonus round (the latter of which triggers the 'PERFECT' ending).

Solomon’s Key is a puzzle platform game with an old clumsy magician who has the power of creating and destroying platforms. And through that power, he saves the world.

This movie is almost a minute and a half faster than the predecessor movie. In addition, it marks the obsoletion of the last Famtasia movie.

TMNT2 is a classic beat-em-up game, featuring 4 reptiles. This may be that rare case when the Turtles can really prove they are ninjas. Because being a ninja is not about walking and fighting...

After Splinter taught his students how to teleport short distances, it was all over for the Foot Clan. Michael Jackson also taught them how to moonwalk, because this was the 80's and Michael Jackson was cool then. It never spoiled things that with 2 players the game spawns around 8/5 more enemies than with one player. The increased HP didn't help the bosses to stand that sudden turtle attack either.

- Heavy luck manipulation
- Genre: Action
- Genre: Puzzle
The Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle is a frustrating action puzzler. In it, you take control of Bugs as he collects carrots while avoiding enemies such as Sylvester the Cat, Daffy Duck, Yosemite Sam, and Wile E. Coyote. Equipped with nothing but an occasional boxing glove which he can throw and some invincibility potions, Bugs must eat his way through 60 levels without getting trapped by a mob of Looney Tunes.

In this run, the author, Brandon, exploits the game's AI, which is anything but intelligent. Only one of these enemies follows actual movement, while the others will track your input, even if the input changes nothing. As such, the author is able to often render the enemies useless, allowing him to take the most optimal path. When he can't do this, he tries to find the best possible workaround, often pausing for the exact amount of time to make it past a baddie. As a secondary goal, Brandon also attempts to maximize the score without losing time. For more details, as always, please see the author's notes, and also make sure to watch the captions provided in the encodes.

The author has also created a run of this game's "Special Levels".


This run has two YouTube streams. The first contains no input display while the second one does. This was included as the luck manipulation is heavily based on input and it's hard to follow the run otherwise.

The Bugs Bunny Crazy Castle is a frustrating action puzzler. In it, you take control of Bugs as he collects carrots while avoiding enemies such as Sylvester the Cat, Daffy Duck, Yosemite Sam, and Wile E. Coyote.

This game features 4 "Special Levels" which can be accessed either by the "No Carrot Signs" found in several levels or by a password. In this run, the author, Brandon, completes these difficult levels with absolutely no help from the boxing gloves and potions featured in the main game. All he has to work with is precise movement and luck manipulation, and although this, coupled with the numerous enemies, make these levels far less trivial than the main ones, the completion time is still relatively small. Much of the length of this movie is a result of the unavoidable and abnormally long tube scenes in S4 and S1. For more details, as always, please see the author's notes, and also make sure to watch the captions provided in the encodes.

The Brood, an ancient race of dragons, is all but extinct. Their power was so strong that they had to be killed. A (as Ryu is named in this run), the last one of the Brood, is awakened after 400 years and decides he wants to know more about his people.

Well aware of his fearful power, A uses it until he becomes strong enough to rely on his physical power, after which he manipulates luck to an indecent extent, using frame-by-frame advancing to pulverize his foes and even the final boss. It may be a little anti-climactic, but it's much quicker this way.

This is currently the second longest published movie (only Final Fantasy VIII is longer). You might want to take your morning and your afternoon to watch this.

Squaresoft (now known as Square Enix) didn't only make role-playing games! They also made games of different genres. This one is a shoot'em up called Einhänder.

This shooting game has something particular compared to its siblings. Not only can the player shoot bullets, but he can also wield a sword and slash through enemies. In fact, the game's title, Einhänder, means "single-handed" in German, referring to the player's sword.

In this movie, sparky takes advantage of a glitch to abuse the weapon's attack to cause more damage. This is only possible in the Japanese version.

Final Fantasy VIII (1999) marked a significant departure from earlier Squaresoft titles — it was their first game to have realistically proportioned characters and did away with much of the traditional gameplay systems used by earlier titles. Additionally, it is the first Final Fantasy to focus on a love story.

This is the first multi-disc publication on the site, and currently is also the longest published run.

Realizing the babies are missing, Frogger and his new partner Lily Frog set out on an adventure to rescue them.

CoolKirby uses his TAS powers to make Frogger and Lily hyperactive, so they rescue their babies at their fastest. If you're looking for crazy hopping action, look no further!

MediEvil tells the tale of Sir Daniel Fortesque, one very deceased knight, and his quest to rid the land of undead legions and Zarok, the wicked magician who created them. The gameplay is very reminiscent of the action-platformers of old, consisting largely of running around each stage hacking up baddies, though there is also a good share of puzzles to be solved.

Here, Sir Fortesque pulls out his own brand of trickery, warping around levels and outwitting the fiendish puzzles in order to stop Zarok and his forces as quickly as possible.

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.

Rescuing all Reploids on Xtreme mode is inadvisable for all but the most hardcore, yet this TAS makes it look easy. Not only that, it collects everything that can be collected before beating the game.

In this run, Rolanmen1 uses additional items and tricks that are not present in the any% or all stages runs, such as X's Blade Armor. Though X still has less screentime than Zero, he is used to his fullest potential in the Gate stages.

Mole Mania, known as Moguranya (モグラ~ニャ) in Japan, is an action puzzle game. The main character is a mole named Muddy Mole, whose wife and children have been kidnapped by the farmer, Jinbe. Muddy has to go to Jinbe Land and save his family. In the game, the player will solve puzzles by moving a black ball to a gate. However, there are many obstacles and enemies in the way. Therefore the player will dig into ground to find ways around them.

The player skips 6 levels out of 8 using a glitch, causing the time records to be nullified from the second stage to the seventh stage. The previous run used a reset glitch to perform this skip. This time, a different warp glitch was used, which is where most of the 2:45.93 improvement comes from.

Ultraman Ball is a platform game featuring the famous Japanese television character Ultraman. However, the game has little to nothing do with Ultraman, as oddly enough, his power in this game is to transform into a ball and bounce around a lot. Some say this game is based on the abandoned NES project, Armadillo 2, and in fact the game is very similar to Armadillo.

To make it through this strange game, the author of this run, TaoTao, uses several tricks, including ones that optimize movement, like the vine boost, and ones that allow him to skip over several sections, such as levitation. Please see the author's notes for more details.

This movie proves the benefit of sleeping in late. In a departure from most runs, which try to start as soon as possible, the authors avoid any input for over two minutes to enable a faster route.

This Wario game is a fairly unique platformer where you not only play as "the bad guy", but normal damage is replaced with various status effects like catching on fire. In addition, the use of these effects is needed to complete the game.

This run beats the previous movie by 1 minute and 35 seconds through the use of new tricks such as clipping into walls to reach out-of-bounds goal doors, which are only present in this version of the game.

There is also a 100% run of this game on the colorful GBC version.

Kenseiden follows the story of Hayato, a samurai looking to retrieve five ability-granting scrolls and kill some evil warlocks. This involves battling through sixteen levels, including four rounds of impossibly difficult "training".

It's a prime infuriating example of fake difficulty, as Hayato moves incredibly slowly and there are generally an impossibly large number of enemies on the screen at any given time (especially bad in the training stages, where one hit sends you back to the beginning).

This version of the run collects all the scrolls and bonus upgrades (as opposed to the any%), and does so 14.46 seconds faster than previously due to some new tricks and route changes. It also visits one extra stage than in the previous run, so as to visit all of the game's stages (even if this extra stage has no bonuses or scrolls).

Kenseiden follows the story of Hayato, a samurai looking to retrieve five ability-granting scrolls and kill some evil warlocks. Normally, this involves battling through sixteen levels, the last several of which are very difficult without the abilities gained from the scrolls.

This run forgoes all but two of the scrolls and heads directly for the final round, as opposed to the 100% run which finishes all of the stages and collects all the scrolls.

This is an improvement of 1:35.46 over the previous any% run due to route changes and the use of some new glitches.

ActRaiser (1990) is a critically acclaimed SNES game which combines two major gameplay phases: a god simulator and an action platformer. You play the role of God "the Master", who awakens from his slumber only to find that the human civilization is completely wrecked, and hordes of demons are roaming free. The Master has two roles: to open new locations for humans to inhabit, and to deal with the catastrophes happening there, which usually have something to do with grotesque monsters, as represented in side-scrolling action stages, and to help develop the civilization anew by controlling it during the overhead phases through a bow-wielding cupid who also repels mischievous demons, as presented in the form of an overhead simulation.

This is an improvement of 14:11.48 over the original run of this game from 2004.


Commentary from the authors is available as subtitles in the MKV and YouTube video, or through this script if watching in the emulator.

Castlevania: Dracula X (1995), released in Japan as Akumajō Dracula XX, is actually a toned-down remake of a PC Engine title known as Rondo of Blood (1993). It stars Richter Belmont, supposedly a son of Juste Belmont from Harmony of Dissonance, on a mission to save Annette (said to be his girlfriend) and Maria Renard (a young vampire huntress said to be his girlfriend's sister), along with a number of their fellow villagers, from imprisonment by Dracula (said to be the villain) and his minions.

Unfortunately, in this SNES port Richter isn't too much of a fast walker - unlike his father and the later Belmont clan descendants - so his fastest way of moving is constant backflipping (so don't be surprised by the author's choice of traveling method).

This movie is a 11.48 second improvement to the previous version by pirate_sephiroth.

Inspector Gadget is a cartoon series featuring a bumbling cyborg, his clever niece Penny and her super intelligent dog Brain. Despite his many useful abilities like helicoptering and a hand that comes out of his head, the Inspector must constantly rely upon Penny and Brain to defeat his arch-nemesis Dr. Claw week after week. However, in this game he must save Penny from several kidnappings without such aid. In another major departure from the television series, Dr. Claw's face is shown briefly.

The author abuses Inpector Gadget's gadgets to do things clearly not intended by the game designers. Whether floating through stages or grappling with his head-hand, large sections are skipped and bosses dispatched expeditiously.

This is an improvement of 16.60 seconds over the previous run by the same author due to general optimisation and more effort to reduce lag.

This game is about two characters, Chiaki and her reluctant demon servant Zenki. They have saved the world from the forces of darkness before, but apparently once is never enough. Chiaki has a vision of five cloaked figures and knows that only she and Zenki can stop them. They set off at once to track down the demon leaders.

Watch as Dooty rushes through this game in just over 13 minutes using many of Zenki's flashy attacks. Along the way, some stone monuments need to be destroyed in order to proceed. For more details, see the author's comments.

Note: The author plays in Normal mode since Hard mode is not available until you've already beaten the game once. Also, Normal mode reduces the amount of enemies on screen, so it has less lag than Hard mode.

Maui Mallard in Cold Shadow (1996) was among the later games released on SNES, which had its positive impact on production values. As a result, the game sports remarkable design and animation quality.

In addition to that, it stars Donald Duck in the role of Maui Mallard, a detective with an alter ego of a blindfolded ninja called Cold Shadow, on the task of retrieving the lost Shabum Shabum idol on a remote tropical island. And no, the plot doesn't get more sensible from that point on.

The author, funnyhair, improves on the previous run by nearly two minutes by optimizing movement and boss fights, among other things. For more details, as always, please see the author's notes.

Rockman & Forte (ロックマン&フォルテ), known as Mega Man & Bass in the western world, used to be the last game chronologically released for the original Rockman/Megaman series, until Rockman & Forte Mirai kara no Chōsensha (ロックマン&フォルテ 未来からの挑戦者) was released on the WonderSwan handheld system.

This game bears a striking resemblance to Mega Man 8, not only in style, but in excessive graphic detail. Similarly to Mega Man X4, the player has the option to choose one of two characters to play through. In this run, Rockman is chosen.

This run is 41.64 seconds faster than the previous run, demonstrating that this game is even glitchier than it originally appeared.

There are two more Rockman & Forte runs to watch on this site; featuring completion of the game with Forte as fast as possible and collection of all CDs with Rockman.

Rockman & Forte (ロックマン&フォルテ), known as Mega Man & Bass in the western world, used to be the last game in the original Rockman/Mega Man series, until Rockman & Forte Mirai kara no Chōsensha (ロックマン&フォルテ 未来からの挑戦者) was released for the WonderSwan.

This time around, Dr. Wily has his own creation turned against him, allowing the player to use Mega Man or a bad guy!

However, in this run, the players only use Mega Man and collect each and every CD in the game, which shouldn't be possible using only one character. Then again, many things happen in this movie that weren't intended to be possible.

This run is a collaboration between sparky, the current author of the other branches for this game, parrot14green, the author of the previous "100 CDs" run, and woabcfl, the author of the Rockman no Constancy runs. It improves the previous movie by 1:40.96. You can read the authors' comments for more details.

There are two more Rockman & Forte runs to watch on this site; featuring completion of the game with Rockman and Forte as fast as possible, without worrying about CD collection.

In the latest in silly ideas turned into inspirations for our ever-dedicated TASers, this movie takes one controller and wires it into three SNES emulators at once; the same input is used to play 3 games simultaneously with one controller. There are also animations constructed with spare controllers during this movie.

This movie beats the first three Mega Man X games with 100% completion each (an improvement on its predecessor, which beat only the first two games and without 100% completion).

If you like this movie, there are other movies that beat four games with one controller!

Note: There might be a visual anomaly during the battle with Serges in X 2. This is an emulator bug relating to the Cx4 chip used in the Mega Man X 2 cartridge.

Encoder's Note: There are multiple audio tracks included with the encode. Track 1 is the combined audio of all 3 games panned so that the left side is MMX1, center is MMX2, and right is MMX3. Track 2 contains MMX1's audio, track 3 contains MMX2's audio, and track 4 contains MMX3's audio.

Mega Man X3 is the third game in the Mega Man X series, and the last one to be released on the SNES.

This is the second "100%" run of this game. agwawaf speeds through the game very rapidly, collecting all heart tanks, subtanks, Ride Armor modules, upgrades and finally the Golden Armor. However, Zero is kept alive and his Z-Saber is not obtained, so the author could get the best ending.

A Secret of Mana TAS has finally come to TASVideos!

Secret of Mana is a widely popular action RPG published by Square. It is internationally regarded as the first game of the Mana series, though the Japanese title is Seiken Densetsu 2, so it is the sequel of Final Fantasy Adventure. It utilizes real-time battles like many other action RPGs while including some unique features such as the Ring Command and multiplayer action.

Touch-me beats the game very quickly, using three players simultaneously and a whole host of glitches. For instance, many bosses can be hit for 999 instant damage using a charge counter glitch, and certain plot points are skipped. See the submission comments for more details.


The YouTube encode contains commentary from the author in the form of hard subtitles.

Seiken Densetsu 3 is a RPG about your typical ragtag group of young adventurers that totally lack any survival instinct; at least that'd explain why they never bother to get any protective gear. Our three chosen champions of goodness are tasked with rescuing the eight elemental spirits from the clutches of evil and using their power to save the world. Though it turns out that nobody is able to count as we find in fact nine spirits...

We recommend reading the author's notes; they contain a lot of very good information.

In Spanky's Quest, you take control of a bubble wielding monkey named Spanky. When you bounce a bubble, it changes colors, and depending on what color it is when it is popped, a certain type of ball comes out, which can be used to attack enemies. Each level is completed when you collect a certain amount of keys and open the door at the end.

In this run, the author, FFGamer86, uses a glitch to transport a key from one bubble to another, a trick nearly impossible to execute in real time. To see the other tricks he used, please see the author's notes.

When played at full speed, Super Bomberman 2 is a straightforward action game, but if it's played in slow motion, it becomes an extremely tactical puzzle game. The author of this movie uses several tactics that are difficult to understand if one is watching the movie at full speed. These include setting up chain reactions and clearing up the end of the level before even reaching it. To get a better grasp of the techniques used, read the author's comments.

This is an improvement of exactly 2 minutes and 19 seconds over the predecessor movie. Most of the time is saved from lag management, new tricks and better strategy.

Award - SNES TAS of 2011
Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island is a vibrant, colorful and fun game that stars the popular Yoshi. From a technical standpoint, the game is very exceptional on the SNES due to its use of the SuperFX chip, which allows for many cool special effects that are otherwise impossible on the SNES.

This movie by Carl Sagan (no, not that Carl Sagan) is fast-paced, action-packed, and full of entertaining tricks and maneuvers. In other words, the very essence we tool-assisted speedrun makers enjoy. It also improves the previous run of this game by over 5 minutes. For more details, we recommend reading the author's comments; there's a lot more to this movie than meets the eye.

This run forgoes using the null egg glitch to finish the game within minutes and instead plays through the regular levels. To see the null egg glitch in action, check out the any% run by Masterjun. For more Yoshi's Island action, check out our 100% run.

- Aims for maximum score
- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Puzzle
This Tetris Attack movie aims to get the highest score in the shortest amount of time possible. The result is obtained by executing multiple combos simultaneously, building them up to level 13. Combo bonuses are no longer awarded after getting 13 consecutively due to a bug in the game.

The level of play is far and above what any human could do in real-time on this game.

This is an improvement of 7.88 over the previous movie by the same author, zvsp. He does this primarily by starting each chain with one explosion. That way, he can explode the saved blocks during the chain, which, thanks to a glitch, gets him around 25000 points for every 13x chain. This allows him to beat the game in four chains instead of the previous five.

This movie was played on Panel De Pon, the Japanese version of Tetris Attack.

The only difference in gameplay between the two versions is how the scoring system works. Instead of doing many combos in a chain as in the US version movie, author zvsp uses a few very large combos to reach the goal about 30 seconds faster, finishing with an ingame time of 0'25.

This game stars five of the X-men: Cyclops, Wolverine, Gambit, Beast, and Psylocke. (Professor X is probably coaching them from a safe place, like he always does.) Each member has their own level to complete, but anyone can be chosen to play the remaining levels. The author primarily uses Beast for his power, though Psylocke is chosen in one stage.

Watch as Mega Man takes on the latest set of Robot Masters and everyone's favorite mad roboticist for the tenth time in the classic series.

This run is played on normal difficulty (the highest available with no prior save data) and, amongst other feats, takes no damage at all (Mr. Perfect achievement), kills one of every enemy (World Warrior achievement), and manipulates more extra lives and large power-ups than you've probably ever seen before in a single playthrough. The final in-game time is 20:04.

In a fit of cosmic irony, this publication, which is the first for a current set-top console, is of a game deliberately designed to be a throwback to the NES days.

Cave Story (2004) is a famous freeware indie game notable for being made entirely by one person, Daisuke "Pixel" Amaya.

Watch as nitsuja completely destroys this difficult game with amazingly precise movement. This playthrough saves Curly and finishes with the best ending after beating Ballos.

The program used to make this run, Hourglass, was also developed by nitsuja—with the creation of this run in mind. As such, it is our first published run of a Windows game.
