- Genre: Adventure
Adventure is a first-party game released in 1979 for the Atari 2600. The goal of the game is to find the enchanted chalice and return it to the gold castle while avoiding the three dragons guarding it. It was the first action-adventure game, and also the first game to have an inventory, a continue system, and a widely-known Easter egg.

The author, TehSeven, ignores the fearsome dragons and breezes through the maze, finishing the quest in a little over half a minute.

From Wikipedia:

The player(s) takes control of the DC Comics character Superman, who must repair the bridge destroyed by Lex Luthor, capture Luthor and his criminal underlings, enter a phonebooth to turn back into Clark Kent, then return to the Daily Planet in the shortest amount of time. To slow Superman's progress, Kryptonite has been released by Luthor. If hit by Kryptonite, Superman loses his abilities to capture criminals and fly. To regain them, he must find and kiss Lois Lane.

However, jlun2 uses a pause demo glitch to warp to the end. That is all.

- Genre: Action
Castle of Dragon, known as Dragon Unit (ドラゴンユニット) in Japan, is an obscure arcade game about a castle with a dragon in it. Perhaps it's not the most original sounding game; but it does have nudity, gratuitous violence, and Engrish to make up for it. The action is very fast paced, and with the help of TAS skills, the dragon master is dispatched quicker than a hard boiled egg.

We also have a movie of the NES version.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Action
- Genre: Platform
Ghosts 'n Goblins (1986) (known in Japanese as魔界村 makaimura, "Demon World Village") begins with a normal scene: a half-naked knight is on a date in a graveyard with a princess. Suddenly, a demon appears and abducts the princess! The knight quickly suits up and makes rapid progres (sic) through the demon world in an attempt to rescue his royal girlfriend.

This run of the original arcade game completes the first cycle 1:55.96 faster than the previous run of the NES port, but the game engines are so different that a comparison between the two times doesn't make any sense. Reaching the end credits requires a second run-through of the game which would be identical to the first run-through; this is omitted in this run.

Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter is the 4th Capcom fighting game to incorporate characters licensed from the Marvel Comics universe. It is in many ways a direct sequel to X-Men vs. Street Fighter, featuring many of the same characters and the same tag-team gameplay. It was well-received and paved the way for the Marvel vs. Capcom series.

In this playaround, the author shows many different characters, sometimes controlling both 1P and 2P, sometimes against the CPU. Infinite combos, glitches, and strange situations appear non-stop. A number of the glitches and techniques are detailed in the author's comments.

Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes is a 1998 Arcade fighting game developed by Capcom. It continues the lineage of Capcom fighting games featuring characters from Marvel comics, and is the game that paved the way for the hugely successful Marvel vs. Capcom 2.

Each team has two characters (which can be simultaneously controlled at certain times), plus a third summon assist character. This leads to quite a few things happening on the screen at once. There are quite a few glitches showcased; see the author's comments for a complete listing.

- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Fighting
Mega Man 2: The Power Fighters is the direct sequel to Mega Man: The Power Battle. Like its predecessor, this arcade-only game does away with the levels of the classic Mega Man games and instead pits you against Robot Master after Robot Master. The game features four characters and three game modes to choose from, with different Robot Masters to fight in each mode.

For this run, Marx runs the "Search for Wily!" mode with 2 players at once, using both Mega Man and Proto Man to defeat each robot faster than just 1 player could. Though the battles are speedy, the brief waiting periods after each match allow some time for entertainment.

Jumpman Junior is a game developed by Randy Glover, who described it as a "lite" version of Jumpman containing 12 levels for users without disk drives. In it, you need to defuse all of the bombs placed on Jupiter by terrorists. To do this, you must climb up ladders, touch the vines, and, of course, jump.

adelikat, in the site's first ColecoVision run ever, completes this game in 4:48.58 by jumping through walls, abusing deaths, and moving very fast.

Note: The character should not be confused with Mario, who was originally named Jumpman. Interestingly enough, Glover cited Donkey Kong as inspiration for this game. It is not known whether the naming is a coincidence or not.

Avoid the Noid is a platform computer game for the Commodore 64 and MS-DOS, written in 1989 to promote Domino's Pizza. It was modeled after the company's ad campaign during the late 1980s. The ads featured a "noid" that destroyed pizzas and must be avoided.

The protagonist must traverse a 30-story building and deliver the pizza within 30 minutes. Colorful rabbits armed with booby traps, phone bombs, rocket launchers and bomber planes that drop water balloons seek to prevent the delivery.

Partners in crime turska & Ilari deliver the pizza in a record-breaking 03:33.52, or 7:42.00 according to the ingame clock. For details on how they did it, read the authors' commentary.

Castle Adventure is a game made in 1984 about a cloverleaf person trapped in a deserted castle with monsters roaming around. You have to find a way to escape the castle by searching for clues.

You move around with the arrow keys. If you manage to find a weapon, you can attack enemies by simply moving into them. Similarily, you can pick up objects on the ground by moving into them. You can also type in commands such as "LOOK DESK", "TAKE KEY", "READ BOOK", and "DROP FLASK". There are treasures to be found and monsters to be slain in order to increase your score.

In this TAS, Ilari & Truncated clear the game in a blindingly fast 19.45 seconds utilizing subframe optimization and rapid keyboard-twisting input. For details, read the authors' comments.

The run is so fast that the emulator can't draw all of the game's video output, so the downloadable encodes are made with a hacked version of the emulator that draws all of them.

Commander Keen 2: The Earth Explodes (1990) is the second game in the Commander Keen saga. In it, the Vorticon mothership intends to destroy Earth, and only eight-year old Billy Blaze, as Commander Keen, can save us.

Here the author beats back the Vorticon invasion in slightly under 5 minutes, leaving one to wonder why we here on Earth bother with military defense at all. It's not quite that easy though; reading the author's comments is recommended to understand the planning and manipulation required for Keen to waltz by Vorticon after Vorticon.

Commander Keen 5: The Armageddon Machine (1991) is a part of the popular Commander Keen saga, developed by id Software. It is a direct continuation of the previous episode of Goodbye Galaxy, in which Commander Keen (Billy Blaze) has learned from the Oracle of Gnosticus IV that the evil Shikadi plan to blow up the galaxy with their doomsday device, the Omegamatic (It slices! It dices! It causes a 100,000 light year-diameter quantum explosion!). Naturally, he sets out to sabotage the machine and stop the Shikadi.

Using a series of glitches, Keen completes only four stages to get to the end game, only one of which takes any significant length of time, and destroys the Quantum Explosion Dynamo, the core of the Omegamatic in the impossibly short time of 2:02. In the process, he manages to inadvertently prevent the Shikadi from accomplishing their escape (though you have to watch the ending very closely to figure out that this has happened here).

Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow (2005), the first installment of Castlevania on Nintendo DS, is a direct sequel to GBA hit Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow.

Like its predecessor, after finishing the game, you can choose to ignore pretty-boy Soma Cruz and instead play as Julius Belmont. Unfortunately, it seems that Julius's skills have waned a bit since his last appearance. Yoko Belnades and Alucard easily pick up the slack, though.

This run avoids the use of large-skip glitches that can be seen in our other run of Julius in Dawn of Sorrow, showing off more of the game.

Using the powers that only tool assistance can provide, every single possible soul is collected in a bit over 35 minutes. If you've ever played the game, you know what a pain those souls can be.

Very detailed information on the run is available in the author's comments.

There are also runs that complete the game as fast as possible with Soma, with Julius, and with Julius while staying in bounds.

The second Castlevania title released on Nintendo DS after Dawn of Sorrow, this game is a direct sequel to Bloodlines on Sega Genesis. Dracula rises from the dead yet again (cue groan), and it's up to Jonathan Morris, helped out by Charlotte Aulin, a powerful mage student, to defeat him.

Beating Dracula into a pile of dust in under five minutes wasn't enough for our heroes, so this time they wreck his entire castle and surrounding areas before killing him. Every boss is slain, so you get to see more of that fast "showtime" action. Significant glitching is used; read the author's comments for more information.

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.

In this run, hellagels and red-crowned-crane collect all secret disks, life ups, BM upgrades and sub tanks, achieving a 100% completion rate.

Myst is the epic puzzle game whose puzzles will take you hours to solve. Unless, of course, you know the answer. Although you'll encounter many brainmelting puzzles when normally playing through Myst, all the game really requires you to do is flip the eight switches around the island, get the blank page and bring it to Atrus.

One of the hardest things about this is the fireplace code which must be obtained in order to get access to Atrus. However, this being a TAS, the code is known and is entered in the most entertaining fashion the author could think of.

Most of the game can normally be skipped with warp cannons. Here, the authors avoid those cannons, allowing you to see much more plumbing action.

Sonic Colors (2010) is a fast-paced platform game for the Nintendo DS featuring Sega's mascot Sonic the Hedgehog. It makes good use of the dual screens, having Sonic freely zipping from screen to screen, and also features unique "wisp" powerups, which turn Sonic into various other fast-moving objects.

Here, VanillaCoke makes very good use of the superhuman speed and reactions of tool assistance to navigate Colors much faster than a human ever could. Sonic's motion is very carefully tracked at all times to ensure the fastest possible completion. You can read the author's comments for more information.

Super Mario 64 DS is a remake of Super Mario 64 for the Nintendo DS, released in 2004 along with the system. It features improved graphics, new levels and playable characters, and most importantly in this case, a different "polish".

More importantly, it features different glitches than those featured in the runs of the original SM64.

In this run, MKDasher and ALAKTORN improve their previous movie by 4:31.69 by using several new glitches and tricks that allow them to finish the game while collecting only a single star.

You Have to Burn the Rope is a very hard game. You have to burn the rope there.

More seriously, this is a Nintendo DS port of an intentionally trivial Flash game created by the Swedish student Kian "Mazapán" Bashiri. It was created as a satire, specifically to make fun of other games that limit the player's interaction by being easy, linear, or heavily controlled and jokingly ask at which point these games also cease to be games. -Bashiri

In this run, Mro314 uses a few tricks like corner boosting and jumping off of ledges to help him complete the game in the fastest time possible.

In another delightfully colorful Kirby game, Kirby is out taking a walk when a dark copy of Meta Knight appears, slices him into four different Kirbys (each having only a limited ability to inhale), breaks the mirror leading to the Mirror World, and scatters the eight pieces far and wide. To save the real Meta Knight and free Dream Land from great evil, the four Kirbys set out to traverse the maze and collect the pieces.

In this run, mugg utilizes a variety of different enemy abilities to help speed things along and improves his previous run by 2:44.40 minutes.

After a major surgery, Samus's Power Suit has been reduced in appearance. To compensate, she decides to arm herself to the teeth with 250 missiles and more power bombs than she really needs. It's her favorite thing to do when sequence breaking isn't as feasible.

BioSpark collects all 100 capacity increasing items for Samus's health, missiles and power bombs. The abilities recovered from the Core-X are not part of this number.

Like in previous Metroid Fusion TASes, lowest in-game time is top priority, sacrificing some minor tricks that save real-time but would have made in-game time slightly higher. In-game completion time is 55:28, 48 in-game seconds faster than the previous run. The real-time improvement is 30.23 seconds. It appears smaller due to 1 in-game second actually being 1.06 real-time seconds in this game.


If you are interested, an alternate encode is available, that eliminates all of the door screen transitions and conversations, cutting viewing time quite a bit.

Monster House is a 2006 animated film about a haunted house and three children trying to best it. The movie was reasonably successful; so like most successful movies, it got a spinoff game.

While it is not the most interesting game ever during normal play, Monster House becomes much more interesting when it's thoroughly broken. Here, the author uses an out of bounds glitch to break the game, allowing for quite a bit of time saving.

Mr. Driller 2 is a fast-paced puzzle game where you have to drill to the bottom of the level within a fixed time limit.

In this run, the author drills through the ten time attack courses in slightly under seven and a half minutes. Furthermore, he aims primarily for in-game time, as it adds to the entertainment value and adds also to the strategy, as there are time bonuses in this mode which subtract time.

This is an improvement of 4.76 seconds over the previous publication, with the improvement coming from better routes and better optimization.

In this run of Sonic Advance, the author doesn't take advantage of the game-destroying spindash glitch featured in the normal run. It goes somewhat slower because of this, but new inventive solutions are used to get through each act, and the result is still much faster than any oversized ferret ought to be moving.

There are two encodes for this movie: The first is a standard encode, whereas the second encode shows two screens: the screen on the left is the unmodified gameplay, and the screen on the right is from a hack which keeps Sonic in the center of the screen more often. (Note that this hack has no effect on the actual gameplay, only on the watcher's viewing experience.)

It would be pointless to describe The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past here, because this run has little to do with the game itself.

Enix decided to hop on the monster collection/battling bandwagon with Dragon Warrior Monsters, in which the main character, Terry, makes friends with various monsters from previous Dragon Warrior games so he can win the Starry Night Tournament and rescue his sister.

This movie is 7:46.48 faster than the previous version. Some time is saved by using the (JPN) version over the (USA) version, but much more time is gained through heavy bot-assisted luck manipulation. Reading the author's comments is recommended.

Dragon Warrior Monsters 2, originally titled Dragon Quest Monsters 2 (ドラゴンクエストモンスターズ) is the second game in the Dragon Quest series spin-off, Dragon Quest Monsters. Like its predecessor, it revolves around taming and training monsters from the Dragon Quest universe to do your fighting for you.

What is normally a long RPG has been significantly shortened from the use of glitches to skip content; a full listing is available in the author's comments.

Keitai Denjū Telefang (携帯電獣テレファング) is a series of video games produced by Smilesoft and published by Natsume. The games are monster-battling games, where the player contacts various creatures using a cell phone-like device called a D-Shot in order to get them to battle the foes he or she will encounter. The name of the series derives from Keitai, which is Japanese for "cell phone," since phoning creatures is an integral part of the game, and "fang," to symbolize the various beasts involved.

This movie improves its predecessor by more than a half of a minute. Significant glitching is used; you will likely have to read the authors' comments to understand what's going on.

The Emperor's New Groove is the companion game for the Disney movie of the same name. The game takes place after Emperor Kuzco has been turned into a llama, and your goal is to guide llama-Kuzco back to his palace in order to change him back to a human.

Although this is a relatively simple platformer, Kuzco's llama form requires careful attention to fully optimize move speed.

The Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Seasons is a Game Boy Color game that carries over much of the graphics from Link's Awakening. Surprisingly, much of the game engine is completely different and developed by Capcom. In it, the Oracle of Seasons, Din, is kidnapped by Onox, General of Darkness. Link must travel throughout both Holdrum and Subrosia to collect the 8 Essences of Nature, power up the Rod of Seasons, and defeat Onox.

This game has been attempted by various authors over the past 5 years. Finally, SwordlessLink, along with Tompa, who joined the project after dungeon 4, beat this legendary game in 1:25:57.21 primarily through the use of pitwalking, Pegasus Seeds, and enemy manipulation. Please see the authors' notes for more details.

Buster Brothers, also known as Pang, is a well-known series of puzzle games. This is the first release of the series, ported to the Game Boy. The Author decided to pick the GB version for TASing because the levels are simpler, which makes the run shorter and easier to optimize.

The plot is rather simple. Some "bubbles" are attacking the Earth and you must travel across the world busting them. The game has 50 stages divided into 17 locations: Mt. Fuji, Mt. Keirin, Emerald Temple, Australia, Taj Mahal, Leningrad, Paris, London, Barcelona, Athens, Egypt, Kenya, New York, Maya, Antartica and Easter Island. It offers the option to start from Leningrad and thus skip 18 levels. However, p4wn3r ignored this and went through all the levels to show the entire game.

Catrap is a platform/puzzle game where a boy and girl work through a series of 100 puzzles. This breaks a curse and returns them to human form. Completing each level involves climbing ladders and moving blocks so that each enemy can be defeated. A rewind function is present for trail+error attempts to get to the solutions. But that feature isn't needed here.

This run makes clever use of the switch mechanics. Switch can't be used immediately after defeating an enemy, so other actions are performed while the enemy falls off the screen. Attacking from the ladder is slightly faster, the author uses this and other similar tricks to help save time.

The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening is a classic Game Boy Zelda adventure. Link must travel across the dream world of Koholint Island, collecting the 8 Instruments to wake the Wind Fish and go home after a terrible shipwreck.

bobmario511 (the author), however, realized that "Hey, I'm in a dream. That means I can do anything I want!" With that in mind, he embarks on a journey as the legendary hero THIEF to live out his wildest fantasies. Unfortunately, he would soon find out that this dream would end up being the worst nightmare of his life, traveling through a chaotic world devoid of any logic, meaning, or consistent appearance. Summoning the power of all of the allies he can get, our hero, BowWow, Marin, a ghost, and a flying rooster travel together to make sense of the nonsensical hell of Link's own imagination, collecting what he believes to be the 8 Instruments and Secret Seashells on their way.

To see a run of the "normal" completion of this game, see this movie by the same author.

Might and Magic II: Gates to Another World is an RPG with some amazingly grand scope. Levels up to 255, hp to 65535, +63 weapons, battles with 255 opponents, time travel, and characters dying of old age.

This run takes care of money problems by finding a nameless, glitched party member and taking all his stuff. Teleportation is used in some places it normally can't be by resting to reset the forbidden flag. Walking backwards is employed when it reduces screen draw time. Temple blessings are used rather than a cleric, and items are used instead of a sorcerer.

Outrun is a racing game where the player is presented with forks in the road. The left fork leads to an easier stage and the right fork leads to something more challenging. The camera travels along with the car rather than just presenting a birds eye view. Its designer, Yu Suzuki, describes it as a driving game rather than a racing game.

In this run weatherton uses a couple of tricks to speed things up. By quickly switching between high and low gear driving-off road is possible without slowing down. While using this trick the car stays a fixed distance from the road, making impossibly tight turns possible. The position, type and number of cars and the position of obstacles can be manipulated by horizontal position and the frame they load on. Proper timing of the accelerator allows for a turbo start. And revving a few frames before that adds a little bit more.

Rolo to the Rescue is a platformer for the Genesis, starring an agile elephant, Rolo. Gameplay involves freeing animals from cages. Switching to the saved animals allows for different movement modes, which adds some puzzle elements. The overworld is assembled by getting pieces from clearing stages.

By herself, Rolo can only take one hit, but the animals she frees will take a hit then leave the group. Rolo is a perfectionist, anything less than 100% gets the bad ending, which is quite dark for a game that seems aimed at kids.

Dr. Robotnik is at it again, and this time he's set up a Pinball Defense System inside a volcano. Fortunately, Sonic makes a good pinball and he easily infiltrates the system, recovering most of the chaos emeralds hidden within and making short work of the bosses.

This run is an improvement of 41.70 seconds over the previous movie. The improvements come from better optimization and some new time-saving maneuvers. Reading the author's comments is highly recommended.

Award - Sega TAS of 2012
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (1992) was the game that introduced the Super Dash Attack. The ability, referred to as Spin Dash in later games, has become one of the most beloved features of the series and, indeed, one of the most prominent features of the speedrunning scene as a whole.

In this exhilarating movie, Aglar speeds his way through this classic's varied acts making good use of Spin Dashes to finish them in record time. The author also controls Tails—Sonic's two-tailed foxy buddy—to allow for even faster routes and making shorter work of bosses.

This is an improvement of 50.76 seconds over the previous movie, thanks to better routes and general optimization as explained in the author's comments.

Starflight puts the player into the captains seat and sets them free on a galaxy of 270 stars and 800 planets. This is an early example of a sand box game which leaves the player free to explore for minerals, locate habitable planets, upgrade the ship and crew, and interact with aliens. The eventual goal becomes stopping unusual solar flares in the region.

In this run Aqfaq already knows the cause of the flares and gets straight to business. He gets a better engine, plenty of fuel and uses the continuum fluxes to speed up travel as well. He locates the Black Egg and the Crystal Orb. Then uses them to blow up the Crystal Planet and save the galaxy.

Vectorman 2 is a somewhat darker sequel to the original game involving Vectorman, an "orbot" (robot made of orbs). In this game, Vectorman's sludge barge suddenly gets blasted by a missile. He escapes and ends up in a place infested by mutant insects led by the horrendous Black Widow Queen, whose plan is to take over the Earth and kill all humans, as expected.

This is an improvement of nearly 26 seconds over mmbossman's previous movie. Time savings come from better optimization, lag reduction, and a new trick that effectively allows triple jumping. The author's comments explain the improvements in greater detail.

World of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck is a platformer where a player controls either Mickey or Donald, or two players can use them together co-operatively. In the game Mickey and Donald are magicians who can turn enemies into harmless objects with the flourish of their capes. Defeating bosses unlocks new spells, like a flying carpet and underwater breathing.

In this run Mitjitsu uses both characters at once. A number of jumping glitches are possible. Frame perfect jumps off springs can get to triple normal height. At the end of the cape flourish animation the game briefly assumes the player is on the ground. This can't be used to jump, but the other character can jump off their head.

In X-Men 2: Clone Wars, the alien race Phalanx invades the earth and the X-Men and some X-Women try to stop them.

You get to choose which X-Man to play every stage as. Most of the time Nightcrawler is used because he has the highest movement speed. Second in command is Wolverine because he has the second highest speed and also deals a ton of damage.

The game is unique in the regard that it starts as soon as you power on your console. No SEGA logo, no title screen, no character select. Normally the game pseudorandomly gives you Beast, but changing the types of controllers (3- or 6-button) throws off the start-up timing enough that a faster character can be gotten.

This movie is 5:05.28 minutes shorter than the previous publication thanks to a variety of new tricks explained in the authors' comments.

You play as Penta, a penguin racing around Antarctica to different research stations while avoiding sea lions, breaks in the ice, and a time limit. The game was popular enough that it spawned a sequel, Penguin Adventure, and Penta became Konami's mascot for a time.

At first there were 70 stars because Bowser demanded it. Then there were 16 stars because MIPS the rabbit demanded it. Then there was 1 star because Bowser's Sub demanded it. Now there are none because the viewers are impatient and demanded the game be quicker.

As with many other runs on this site, the goal of pure speed has resulted in the complete breaking of the game. Very little of the game's normal play remains. If you'd like to see more of what Super Mario 64 has to offer, see the "70 Stars, no BLJ" run or the "120 Stars" run.

This movie is 47 frames faster than the previous movie due to new strategies and extreme optimization, as explained in the submission text.

Super Mario 64 has a history of publications on this site. If you wish to see how it unfolded since the beginning, see the page SM64TASHistory. Also, if you have a hankering to see MIPS the rabbit, the 16 stars route has been improved.

You can also see this movie played back on a real console.

Or, if you're looking for a TAS on the Nintendo DS remake, you can watch it here.

In this TAS of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, the author aims to beat the game as quickly as possible while completing all dungeons, temples, and Ganon Trials. This goal is commonly referred to as "all temples", "all dungeons", or "MST (Medallions/Stones/Trials)".

This run has roughly 35 minutes of improvements in gameplay over the previous TAS of its kind.

This movie contains several new glitches and sequence breaks which allow for a much faster completion than were possible when the last run was made. Several large glitches in the game are not used in the run, such as those which allow the player to manipulate memory addresses to obtain items without physically picking them up. These are avoided because it would make the completion of any dungeon completely arbitrary; they can be seen in an old any% run.

Unlike the previous movie of this category, this TAS is played on the Japanese version of the game. The reason for this is that the text is significantly faster than in the English version, which means that far less time (roughly 12 minutes) is spent waiting for text boxes and cut scenes to end before getting back to the action. English subtitles were added to the encode for people interested in what was said.

The author's notes explain in great detail many of the things done in this TAS which may be confusing to those who aren't familiar with Ocarina of Time speedrunning. Reading them is strongly advised.

Note: There are encodes of higher resolutions in the discussion thread.

Wildwaters (also known as "Extreme Kayak" and "X-Stream") is a cancelled racing game that was in development by Looking Glass Studios for the Nintendo 64 in 1998-1999. The project was announced at E3 1999 by the company's publisher, Ubisoft, while the studio was working on Destruction Derby 64 (released in the same year), but sadly it was discontinued the following year. The game features an engine with real waterflow physics on the river, an impressive feat on the N64.

In this run, Swordless Link completes the first level (the only playable one), using the fastest character and abusing rocks, walls, and everything in his path!

Yoshi's Story (1997), a loose follow-up to Yoshi's Island, tracks the adventures of the Yoshi clan as they attempt to reclaim the Super Happy Tree after it is stolen by Baby Bowser. This apparently involves eating copious amounts of fruit in an effort to find happiness for themselves.

Here, the Yoshis stuff their faces so quickly that one wonders if this is an adventure or an all-you-can-eat banquet.

Heroes of the Lance is based on the first Dragonlance campaign and novel. The party journeys through the ruined city of Xak Tsaroth, face the ancient dragon Khisanth and retrieve the Disks of Mishakal.

In the run Randil blitzes through everything, not taking the time to kill or even hit any of the regular enemies. The spell being cast most of the time is Protection From Evil. This creates short term invulnerability and allows for jumping through enemies.

Instead of just capturing the opponent's piece like a wimp, upon confrontation, the two pieces are placed in a "combat arena" in which they must fight to the death.

Astyanax (1990) is the story of a studly 16-year-old boy named Astyanax who is summoned to the world of Remlia in order to save the enchantress Princess Rosebud from the evil wizard Blackhorn, who wants to rule the world.

It is a somewhat clumsy game. For one, Astyanax is twice as big as he appears, and so he is easily hit unless one plays carefully. The controls are also very bad. The sum of these factors is that it's a difficult game to play, but that's part of what makes this movie interesting—especially for those who have played this game.

Thanks to effective lag management and using all powers, the author has achieved 32.66 seconds worth of improvement over the previous movie by dragonxyk.

A Week of Garfield is a 1989 Famicom exclusive based on the comic strip character Garfield. In the game you play through levels which take place on each day of the week on your search to find Odie.

This game is surprisingly hard. Playing the game without dying (which results in a game over since you only have one life), let alone not losing any health, is extremely challenging. At times the screen is nearly filled with enemies and requires frame specific movement to avoid taking damage.

But don't worry, goofydylan8 manages to make this game look like a piece of cake and beat the console world record by 4 minutes.

Simon is taking another shot at this castle, but feeling horrible for the destruction he caused last time, he is now trying to respect Dracula's property and leave the place untouched (even if his intention is to kill the count).

As a minimalist variation of a pacifist goal, this movie does not contain any destruction in the levels: candles and walls are left intact, items stay untouched, and no enemy is harmed — with the exception of the bosses, who are killed mercilessly with the help of the "critical hit" glitch.

With Simon sneaking by most enemies with no subweapons and only his leather whip, this ends up being quite a stealthy run.

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

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

This movie takes the path that recruits Grant. It is about 22 seconds faster than the previous version. Improvements come from more optimization, better heart management, and new tricks like manipulating moving platforms and entering walls. There is also a Sypha path movie and an Alucard path movie.

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

- Genre: Platform
Clash at Demonhead is a complex game to say the least. There are over 40 levels in the game, and they are all connected to each other. In the network of levels, the player must control Billy "Big Bang" Blitz to find 6 medallions and then rescue the kidnapped professor. This is no simple task. To make things even harder for a (tool-assisted) speedrunner, there are items available that greatly increase the player's speed, but in return cost money. This means that the route and strategy must be carefully planned.

This movie certainly does not lack speed or complexity, and is especially entertaining if you have played the game and know how hard it is. In this run, Randil improves the previous movie by over 4 minutes primarily thanks to a new trick that allows you to use the Power Boots for twice as long. As a result, he doesn't need to shop as much, allowing him to forgo the detour to Route 22 in order to exchange his gold for money.

Clu Clu Land is an odd Nintendo puzzle game in the same vein as the old PC game Clockwerx. The goal of the game is to uncover patterns of golden ingots buried under the ground by passing over them. You do this by moving your character to the pegs and having her grab onto and spin around them.

The author, pdk, controls two players simultaneously for more speed and entertainment.

Crash 'n' the Boys: Street Challenge is part of the Kunio-kun series. Kunio is the protagonist of the series and the guardian of Nekketsu High School. His name has been localized in a variety of ways: "Crash" Cooney in this game, Mr. K in Renegade, Sam in Super Dodge Ball, and Alex in River City Ransom. In this game, representatives of the high schools compete in five no-holds-barred events.

In this run, GuanoBowl ends all the races early by knocking his opponent out. Rockets are purchased to make the hammer throw go farther and gum is used to help him hold his breath underwater. This run gets the extended ending by winning as Crash's school.

Crystalis is an awesome action rpg by SNK. What little plot there is involves the world ending on October 1, 1997. Naturally, after that the world became full of mutants and monsters. Technology regresses and people can use magic. There is an evil empire trying to revive the ancient technology, specifically the obligatory tower floating in the sky. The hero pops out of some sort of stasis chamber and proceeds to topple the empire and take down the tower with the help of some wise men and a friendly dolphin. There's a heroine named Mesia, but she only shows up a few times, most of which are skipped in this run.

This beats the previous run by almost 12 minutes. As with that run, the second-controller cheats are off-limits (the fm2 only has data for controller 1). Other than that, no holds are barred. Many new glitches are used. For a complete list, see the game resources page. Movement is faster by abusing the no-subpixel engine. Much effort went into lag reduction, especially in certain areas. However, the vast majority of the time savings is due to better experience management.


We recommend watching the movie on an emulator and using the author's LUA script. There's quite a bit of useful information.

Double Dare is closely based on an old Nickelodeon children's game show. To win, each team must answer a few of the trivia questions before time runs out. If the team answering thinks the other team might not know the answer, they can "dare" the other team to answer the question for double the points. However, the other team has the option to "double dare" them right back for a chance to win quadruple the points. The winning team gets to race through the Double Dare obstacle course, which features obstacles like the 1-Ton Human Hamster Wheel and a tank of Nickelodeon's iconic green slime.

Thanks to tools and the low difficulty of the questions, the author, goofydylan8, doesn't have to dare the other team even once to win.

Based loosely on the novel with a similar name, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde follows Dr. Jekyll as he walks to his wedding. For some reason though, everyone and everything is out to kill him, and if he gets attacked too many times, he will involuntarily transform into the monster Mr. Hyde. Once he becomes Hyde, he enters a mirror world where he must kill a number of demons to return to the real world and his normal self. Jekyll must advance further than his doppelgänger in each level in order to successfully reach his wedding.

By taking almost no damage in this TAS, the demon world is never seen. This is practically impossible to do without tool assistance, and even causes the game to exhibit glitches that speed up the game.

The original Final Fantasy follows four heroes who are trying to restore the four orbs which have been contaminated and ultimately defeat Chaos.

Unfortunately only one of the warriors is actually a hero; the rest are sissies who die early on during the quests. Strange as this may sound, much time is saved by doing so since fewer commands need to be entered every time the player runs from a random encounter.

On TASVideos, perfect runs are continually improved, often through very unexpected changes. This run by TheAxeMan improves the old TAS by 9.11 seconds by getting lower stats and spending more time at inns and item shops.

For those who think they have a better sense of humor than the author, he has provided Python scripts which allow you to recreate the entire run with your own choices for character names substituted for his. Available as a Windows standalone program or as source.


The downloadable videos and the YouTube stream contain soft subtitles with commentary from TheAxeMan.

Here, the author defies all common sense and takes a team composed entirely of White Mages, the token "weak healing caster" class.

If what was done in this movie was possible in real life, economies worldwide would crash.

Ghostbusters is a hastily produced game based on the 1984 movie of the same name. The NES version is a notoriously bad port, and the Japanese version contains a glitch that allows the Ghost Alarm item to be sold for more than it costs, allowing entry into the Zuul Building much earlier than intended.

In this movie, MESHUGGAH improves the first run of this game by 38 frames through a few small optimizations. See the author's notes for more details.


Note: A bug in the Japanese version causes the ending screen to incorrectly display "りり". This movie will also sync while the PAXKKLAA Game Genie code is used, which shows the corrected text:

A fast-paced action platformer from Sunsoft with similarities to both Mega Man and Blaster Master. What could go wrong with a mix like that?

This movie shaves a cool 1.38 seconds of input time over the previously published run. (The actual time improvement is slightly greater because this movie plays at a slightly higher framerate than the previous movie. This difference does not cause any changes in gameplay, though.)

In Kanshaku tamanage Kantarō no Tōkaidō Gojūsan-tsugi (かんしゃく玉投げカン太郎の東海道五十三次), you play a fireworks-maker traveling the Tōkaidō road. The game actually bears quite a resemblance to the actual geography of the Tōkaidō road; famous landmarks, rivers, and flora types are reproduced as well as they can be given the limitations of the Famicom.

The game is quite difficult -- the hero is slow moving and hard to control, and your only weapon is an endless supply of fireworks. The author's comments detail the methods used as well as explaining all of the various baddies encountered during this quest.

King Graham sets off on a journey to save his family from the evil wizard Mordack. Unfortunately for him, the number of beings in the world that desire to kill him are vast, and only the most silly usage of items can save him from impending doom. He also has a sidekick, Cedric the Owl, who is next to useless.

A port of the PC game from the well-known King's Quest series, King's Quest V is an adventure game infamous for its numerous dead ends, long fetch quests, and overly obscure solutions. The game is highly restrictive, with minimum points necessary to beat the game being not much less than the maximum 260 points, and as such, this TAS goes for the maximum.

Low G Man is a futuristic action video game developed by KID for the Nintendo Entertainment System.

The game is really difficult to run: the controls are at times clunky, the screen refresh is frustrating and finally the last boss is an example of a difficulty spike as it suddenly becomes much harder than the rest of the game.

The author manages to complete the game in just 10 minutes, beating the real-time speedrun by 5 minutes. Read the author's comments for more information.

Mario Adventure is a hack of Super Mario Bros. 3. These are its most noteworthy characteristics:

  • Mario can keep a power-up in reserve like in Super Mario World, and the change is immediately effective.
  • There is a new power-up, Magic Mario, which allows Mario to stomp on more enemies than otherwise possible, shoot extremely powerful projectiles, and take a few hits before losing the power-up.
  • Graphics are rendered with a custom palette.
  • Almost all levels end with a Boom-Boom battle.
  • There are 7 worlds which Mario can visit in any order, each containing a hidden key.
  • After finding all 7 keys and beating the 7 worlds, Mario can access the 8th world to beat Bowser and win the game.

This movie is an improvement of 45 seconds over the previous effort.

- Genre: Fighting
Pro Wrestling is a wrestling game in which players can utilize many unique skills and moves to pin their opponent.

However, instead of fighting your opponent, it is much faster to cause a ring-out and let the referee do the work for you. It doesn't even matter who gets thrown out; if you leave the ring, your opponent follows you. If he remains outside of the ring after the 20th count is made, and you don't, you win.

Here, goofydylan8 does this for 6 rounds to become the Video Wrestling Association (VWA) Champion and continues the strategy for 10 title defenses to become the Video Wrestling Federation (VWF) Champion as well. Each time, he uses different fighting styles on his opponents as the timer counts down. Then, Brandon takes over for the Great Puma bout, cutting off the input as quickly as possible by getting back into the ring while giving his opponent the most amount of time to try to do the same.

The result is a run with an in-game time of 5:52, the absolute minimum possible, and a real-time length of 9:47.06. And with that, "A WINNER IS YOU".

Rainbow Islands is a sequel to Bubble Bobble. Protagonists Bubblun and Bobblun now appear in their human forms as Bubby and Bobby. The objective is to climb to the top of each stage in a time limit, while avoiding or destroying various baddies along the way.

The players can summon rainbows which can be used as platforms and weapons. In a TAS, they can be abused greatly to allow dizzying rates of ascent.

This run obtains the bad ending, because it does not collect any of the Big Diamonds used to unlock the secret last level.

Silver Surfer is a shoot 'em up released in 1990. You take control of the Silver Surfer across various levels that alternate between a side-scrolling and an overhead perspective.

Spiritual Warfare (1992) is an unlicensed NES game created by Wisdom Tree. The company specializes in the niche market of Christian-themed video games. The gameplay in Spiritual Warfare is very similar to The Legend of Zelda (1986). The game's story is taken directly from the Bible (Ephesians 6:12-18):

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Therefore, take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day and, having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girded about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness,
15 and your feet shod with the preparation of the Gospel of peace.
16 Above all, take the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God,
18 praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.

The Christian concept of spiritual warfare is a metaphor for fully accepting whatever Christ teaches. The ongoing spiritual war against Satan requires the whole armor of God, meaning that a faithful Christian should always obey the Lord's authority in order to defeat evil.

The author of the TAS utterly ignores the philosophy of obtaining the whole armor of God in order to defeat Satan. The power of prayer, rather than the Helmet of Salvation, is enough to protect the hero's physical body from dynamite explosions.

Super Contra 7 is a pirate game based off the Contra series, developed by E.S.C. Co (alias of Waixing) in 1996 for the Famicom. It is likely a hack of either Contra or Super C, given that the engine appears to be a modified version of the Contra engine.

The game features a pretty psychedelic soundtrack and several glitches that aren't present in other Contras, and Marx makes sure to use them well. This time he uses 2 players and improves the previous movie by 6.75 seconds.

This movie is a full warpless run-through.

It is a 3.48 second improvement over the previous movie by the same author, HappyLee. Most of the improvement comes from new instances of glitches that make Mario decide to ignore the castle and instead rub sensually against the flag pole's support.

The Adventures of Captain Comic is an unlicensed port of an MS-DOS game to the NES.

The story is that galactic hero Captain Comic must recover three treasures which have been stolen away and hidden on the remote planet of Tambi.

The author, Randil, picks up all three treasures and completes the game in only seven and a half minutes.

Top Gun is a game based on the movie of the same name. The NES version was developed by Konami in 1987, and they decided to make it a flight simulator from the view of the main character Maverick's airplane cockpit. There are four missions, and each has two parts: a flying mission where enemy planes, an enemy base, and finally a space shuttle must be shot down and a landing mission where the plane must be precisely landed on an aircraft carrier.

While it is very difficult in real-time play to land the plane successfully because of the precise speed and angle necessary, TrenchAce makes it look easy in this run. Have a watch if you've never made it to Level 2.

Wait and See! is a pirate game based off of "Nu, pogodi!", a Russian cartoon about a wolf chasing a rabbit. In this game, the rabbit looks a lot like Bugs Bunny, and he collects carrots (which magically turn into mushrooms) as he runs to the end of each stage. Bad controls and jumping physics make this a hard game to beat in real-time.

XTREMAL93 almost makes this game look easy as he races to the unsurprisingly lame ending.

Where in Time Is Carmen Sandiego? is an educational game created by Brøderbund Software and ported to the NES by Konami in 1991. Travel through time to find clues and collect warrants in order to capture Carmen Sandiego and her henchmen! The game focuses on teaching geography and history as you go to each time period, find the clues and arrest the crooks.

As in the "no save corruption" run of Pokémon: Blue Version, the enormous amount of luck manipulation needed to optimally play this game was calculated entirely by a bot written by the author of this run, Bobo the King.

Zanac is one of those space shooter games in which you are trying to save the earth.

Due to the highly repetitive nature of this game, the hidden 9th input button (the console's Reset button) is used to enable stage select to warp to the final (12th) level. This results in an unusually long gray screen at the start of the movie. Starting on the final level with 3 lives and only the initial pea-shooter for a weapon normally makes the game near impossible to win.

This is the author's 4th iteration of this movie. It improves on the previous publication by almost 10 seconds by utilizing a hidden fairy and by better boss optimization.

This is the much-anticipated tool-assisted speedrun of the ninth installment in the Final Fantasy series (and the last to be made for the PSX). With its many references to the older games, it's a trip down memory lane for those familiar with the series.

This run completes the famous Excalibur II quest, which requires the player to get to the end of the game in under 12 hours, with over 4 hours and 40 minutes to spare. For more details on the low completion time and the extensive route planning put into this run, we recommend reading the author's comments.

Both the MKVs and YouTube encodes have explanatory subtitles to read while watching.

Note: Due to an emulation error, some areas have rather loud background sound effects (like Alexandria during Vivi's first appearance).


There are two YouTube streams available for this movie. The first is a four-part playlist offering HD video, and the second is all in one stream in 480p.

In previous Mega Man X games, X would do all the real fighting while Zero would say he was off to destroy power sources and do other such unverifiable tasks. Zero even had the audacity to tell him that one day X would be as strong as him.

This time, X lays back and lets Zero put his money lightsaber where his mouth is, leaving Zero to fight off an entire army as well as Sigma. Zero does such a good job showing how much better he is than X that the series has been transformed for TASVideos to be a Zero series from here on out.

- Takes damage to save time
- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Platform
In an effort to avoid the status quo, Capcom decided to experiment, throwing in a leveling system and story-based launch scenarios. Beyond that, it's really just a Mega Man X Zero game.

This is the first game in the series to allow character choice before each stage. Zero is chosen as often as possible, leaving X behind to gather dust. The abusable sword physics highlight Zero's superiority, especially when the sword is used while standing on the ground. Bosses fall very quickly, even when they have 127 health. See the Game Resources page and the author's comments for an explanation of how these tricks work.

There are about 5 minutes of action in this run, which consist mostly of flying through levels and a boss rush on the hardest difficulty mode, Xtreme.

This run is 12.90 seconds faster than the previous run.

We also have a run which completes all stages and a 100% run.

Monkey Magic is a tie-in game for the PSX based on the anime of the same name. It features a monkey named Kongo, who can move about in the typical platformer manner, as well as cast various magic spells.

The author here uses a variety of tricks to skip parts of the game, and fly over other parts. Monkeys don't have wings, but that doesn't seem to matter here.


Note: PSXjin performs very poorly emulating this game, and significant sound glitches appear throughout.

Pandemonium follows the adventuring duo of Nikki and Fargus through the land of Lyr. After they accidentally cast a magic spell that destroys a whole town, they set out to find the Wishing Engine to get it back. Their journey through this 2.5D platforming game features fast-paced gameplay and a number of unique powerups including animal transformations.

Watch for the author's careful use of damage boosts and speed management to fly through this game.

Sorcerer's Maze is a Breakout clone for the PSX. Produced in Japan but only released outside of Japan, it features more power-ups than you can shake a stick at. Giant lasers, tens of balls (or even hundreds, with a strange power-up), stars falling from the sky, and balls nearly as big as the level.

With tool assistance, all of this can be manipulated (to some extent). This run features quite a bit of planning and bonus management, the details of which can be found in the author's comments.

When the Earth is threatened, Zordon summons teenagers 'with attitude' to become the Power Rangers, defenders of all that is good.

In this game, the world is threatened by the forces of evil, which are attacking on multiple fronts, and led by Ivan Ooze. The Rangers have decided to split up and each tackle one of the main bad guys, fighting their way through the enemy hordes and finally returning Ooze to the sludge he belongs in.

The author, GoddessMaria, pairs each Ranger with his or her respective enemy boss and morphs into each Ranger as soon as possible in order to make the run more entertaining at the cost of speed.

In Claymates, Clayton's father has developed a formula that can manipulate clay into animals. After he refuses to give the formula to a witch doctor, the witch takes off with the formula and Clayton's father and turns Clayton into a lump of clay. Despite his sorry condition, Clayton vows to save his father and embarks on a journey to defeat the witch.

Most of the gameplay consists of bouncing around the stages and transforming into different animals using bits of formula scattered throughout the level. Special abilities are also available that can change Clayton into animals that can take out enemies easier. Between stages, there is a mini-game where robots can be used to clear obstacles.

In this run, quietkane uses strategies such as taking damage and limiting the number of gems collected to save time on the end-level gem tally screen in order to finish this game as fast as possible.

This is the fifth game of the series originally known as Dragon Warrior in the US; it remained untranslated until a port to the DS was released in 2008, where it received the name Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride. It tracks the life of our hero, the son of Papas, over a large span of time from his adventurous childhood through tragic adolescence and a joyful marriage as he and his family fight to defeat evil.

Gekisou Sentai Car Ranger is a Power Rangers game released only in Japan. It uses the Sufami Turbo loader add-on for the SNES, making it even more obscure.

The game itself is rather short for a platformer. Only the yellow and red rangers are used due to their unique character advantages which allow them to complete the game faster than the other rangers. Unlike its predecessor, this run gets good ending by getting the minimum 250 parts necessary to form Racing Fusion RV Robo and defeat a transformed President Gynamo before he blows up the Earth. This results in the movie length being increased by 46.26 seconds. See the author's notes for more details.

Lethal Enforcers is a rail shooter with graphics made from digitized photographs. This controversial use of photorealistic enemies helped earn this title one of the first MA-17 ratings for video games and kept it off some toy store shelves.

You control Don Marshall, a Chicago cop who is called in to help stop a major crime organization that has invaded the city. Armed with his standard-issue service revolver, he sets out to stop this growing crime wave and save the day.

The bad guys pop out at a fixed rate, so shooting them faster only speeds up the boss fights.

Lethal Weapon for the SNES is one of many licensed titles made by Ocean Software. It's a Shooter/Platformer that constantly tests the player's endurance with swarms of enemies and puzzles. For each mission you can choose the appropriate character. Walking around - jumping and swimming - kicking or shooting the opponents you have to stop the crimes in your beloved L.A.

This game may not be too speedy in real-time play, but Cooljay makes it look pretty fast and smooth, with the help of some nice glitches. The music and graphics are also rather enjoyable.

Since moving to the SNES 16-bit land, Mega Man has taken the secret identity X, but everyone knows it's still him because he's the only blue robot who shoots three pellets at a time at other robots, steals their weapons, and zips through walls.

FractalFusion plays this game a bit differently than usual. He abuses a failed password in order to obtain all weapons before the intro stage. Because the run does not collect the dash boots, Mega Man X spends the entire run walking through the stages, which provides more opportunities for entertainment than usual.

Power Rangers, an immensely popular set of TV series from the 90s, naturally spawned a massive number of tie-in products. Given the nature of the show, it should not be surprising that a good number of beat-'em-up games are counted amongst their number. There are a total of five levels and two follow-up robot fights in this game.

This run saves 1:21.08 over the previous publication by using new movement and attack strategies; details are available in the author's comments. Kimberly is, as always, the fastest ranger, and is used on every level.

In this strange game, you play a character named Plok who wants to get rid of all the fleas on his home island. Plok has the ability to shoot his arms and legs to harm enemies. To complete some stages, Plok has to kill all the fleas in the stage before the goal flag appears at the end of the stage.

Plok is in a hurry, so he looks for opportunities to travel faster. He finds slides lying around almost everywhere. He finds nice presents making him a lot faster. He finds tiny holes in the Flea Pit for big shortcuts. He finds helpful sawblades, nice guys pushing him into the right direction, and even a lovely fish which helps him climb a mountain. Even water helps him climb a mountain to discover one more slide. He also takes advantage of the fact that he can do bigger jumps without his legs.

Though the improvement over the previous movie seems to be only 2:15.16 minutes, it's actually almost 4 gameplay minutes, because the previous movie did not complete the credits.

Ranma Nibunnoichi - Chougi Ranbu Hen is one of three Ranma 1/2 fighting games that was released for the SNES. It was planned to be released in the US as Ranma 1/2 II: Anything Goes Martial Arts by DTMC, but DTMC went out of business. A direct translation would be "Super Skill Wild Dance Chapter", but it is commonly referred to as "Super Hard Battle". The story involves collecting the 12 ingredients of the Maneki Neko, which will then grant a wish.

This run does what it can to show off the game's combo system while still completing the battles quickly.

Skyblazer (1994) is a relatively obscure gem of a platformer released for the SNES, featuring quite decent music and visuals among other things.

Following the game's truly original plot, Sky, a cocky young hero, has to free a princess sorceress kidnapped by an evil deity Ashura. In order to do so, he must traverse a non-linear world, collecting various spells, abilities, and powerups along the way. Helping him is the eloquently named Old Man, who teaches young Sky to memorize patterns — just after delivering another insult.

This is 24.3 seconds faster than the previous run, which used a beta version of the game. The final version has longer loading times and more lag, but conversations can be finished more quickly, which accounts for most of the time saved. See the submission comments for details.

Spider-Man/X-Men: Arcade's Revenge is an action platformer starring the iconic Marvel characters Spider-Man, Wolverine, Cyclops, Storm, and Gambit. After the X-Men get kidnapped by Arcade, Spider-Man must deactivate bombs, infiltrate the abandoned building where they were taken, and confront Arcade. From there, Arcade puts each hero to the test as they navigate through his bizarre "Murderworld" until Spider-Man can finally confront the madman head-on.

This infamous game was made by LJN, and although it might be better than many others from that label, it still has serious gameplay flaws that make it frustrating, let alone incredibly difficult. However, it works great for a TAS. Using careful precision and many exploits, the team of jaysmad and Brandon make it through this "Juggernaut" in less than 24 minutes. Please see the authors' notes for a detailed breakdown of the levels, a couple of glitches that were unused in the run, and a video of a camera hack for the Black Queen fight that mostly happened off-screen.

Please also check out the run for Wolverine, which is a NES game, also made by LJN, where most of Wolverine's gameplay came from.

This is the 10th published movie of Super Mario World that beats the game by clearing 11 of the 96 exits, the shortest route intended by the game developers. Of all the previous movies, not one had obsoleted its predecessor by more than 15 seconds. This movie sets a new record by beating the previous movie by 22.68 seconds and clocking in under 10 minutes. Ironically, Mario dies in the process.

The authors of this movie have found (more) new glitches to save time. The notable differences in gameplay are:

  • Plays a level which was not previously played (Yoshi's Island 1)
  • Skips Iggy's Castle
  • Optimizes Bowser fight
We recommend reading the author's comments to understand how the new glitches are used in this movie.

There are also movies of this game that trigger the credits early, clear all 96 exits, clear as many exits as possible as small Mario, and write a program using the game's code.

There are many hacks for Super Mario World, made with Lunar Magic, but few of them offer a whole new pleasurable game. The Second Reality Project is notable for being the first hack not made by the author of Lunar Magic that is still considered to be a decent game. The game spawned an Award-Winning series of hacks known for pushing Super Mario World to its limits, pulling in features from other games, and still adding on a few things of its own. This hack, The Second Reality Project Reloaded, is a remake of the original hack with all new graphics, custom music, and other great additions to help set the game apart.

This hack can be regarded as a true sequel to Super Mario World, picking up where it left off. Bowser has hatched a plan to rebuild his airships from Super Mario Bros. 3, and brings along his kids for support, hoping to use his newfound power and henchmen in the "Second Reality" to conquer the Mushroom Kingdom once and for all. Mario (and Luigi) must travel to the strange new Second Reality and face foes and puzzles they've never seen before. The game contains 8 classic worlds, as per the standard in previous games, as well as a special Bowser World, a Sonic World used as a short cut system similar to the Star World from Super Mario World, and one other...

In this run, bahamete abuses the game early on to quickly gain a feather prior to the game officially featuring it, leading to early entry to the Sonic World accessible from the various Koopa Castles. Whereas normal players on average need a good two hours to beat this game, thanks to plenty of flying, and a massive amount of glitching, bahamete beats this game in a mere 34:40.18 minutes.

For a very nice welcomed twist, this run does not feature the usual Bowser Copter fight you've come to expect in Super Mario World and its hacks. Rather, we get to see Mario blaze through one of the longest levels ever to be featured in a Mario game, and ends with a fight reminiscent of an old NES classic.

Super Metroid is a very well-known game in the world of TASing, and there have been many speedruns of this game published here at TASVideos over the years. This run demonstrates one of the hardest categories of speedrun possible for the game, Reverse Boss Order. In this category, Samus kills the four main bosses backwards from the game's intended order.

This category is especially difficult since Samus does not receive her extra suits until quite late in the run. As a result, most of the gameplay in Norfair is a desperate race against the clock as Samus's health decreases constantly in the heated areas. Needless to say, every single energy tank matters much more than it ever would in a normal run. Also, water areas in Maridia are quite difficult to navigate quickly without the Gravity Suit.

This run by Saturn improves on the previous movie by 1:24.26 due to a number of new tricks and strategies. See the submission notes for more details.

Super Turrican (1993) is the fifth game of the Turrican series, popular in the times of C64 and Amiga. It features Contra-like run'n'gun action crossbred with Metroid-esque exploration-driven level design and character abilities, while also being quite colorful and having remarkable soundtrack.

This is a 3.70 seconds improvement over the previous movie by the same author, achieved mostly through optimized movement and not taking damage to save time.


Despite having the same name as its NES counterpart, it's not the same game. Curiously, while this version was made without Manfred Trenz (the original Turrican series designer/developer), the NES one was produced by him alone.

Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 is one of the most diverse games of the series in terms of characters and play modes.

The authors take advantage of this and deliver an exceptional playaround movie. Bugs, easter eggs and impossible combos are shown off at a breathtaking pace. The movie features a mix of 1 and 2 player play for added variety.

This movie is longer than its predecessor by around 14 minutes, showing off more glitches. It also uses a cheat that enables pausing in order to show off even more glitches.

Muramasa: The Demon Blade is a trip through 16th century Japan with cool music, beautiful visuals and fast paced gameplay. Watch as the author introduces you to Momohime, a young princess possessed by an evil spirit who proves quite adept at cutting everything in her path into tiny bits. This run is played on the hardest difficulty, in which Momohime only has 1 hitpoint; but that doesn't slow her down at all.

Note: There are two published encodes. One is 432p, meant to closely mimic the Wii's hardware, and the other is a higher resolution 720p. The 720p encode is 10-bit and may not play back on some older devices.

MegaMari (MegaMari -魔理沙の野望-) is a very difficult Touhou clone of Mega Man 2. The game features the ability to switch between two characters whose weapons are tracked separately, giving it a surprising level of depth.

In this movie, cstrakm braves the bullet hell head-on and lives to tell the tale. Reading the author's comments is highly recommended.

Nikujin (にくじん) is a curious platformer by an independent developer known as Ikiki. It's very short, very hard, and everyone is naked. Well, they're still wearing their ninja masks, anyway.

The author puts this naked ninja through his paces, beating the entire game in under 3 minutes. Many advanced super-precision techniques are used to control the character effectively; reading the author's comments is recommended.

Rosenkreuzstilette (ローゼンクロイツスティレッテ) is a platform game published by independent Japanese studio [erka:es]. Gameplay resembles a Mega Man clone, with Spiritia collecting various weapons from each boss defeated, and alternate protagonist Grolla playing more like Zero from the Mega Man X and Mega Man Zero series.

See how many things from different Mega Man games you can spot while watching this! Stage by stage notes are in the author's comments.

This movie uses Spiritia. For more action, we also have a Grolla movie by the same author.

Spyman (スパイマン) is a short platform game by independent developer Ikiki. You play as a spy, and infiltrate a facility populated with standard Bad Guys, complete with sunglasses and guns.

Despite its short length, there is quite a bit of room for neat tricks and shortcuts, most of which are detailed here.

You can also watch a TAS of another game by the same developer: Nikujin.

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.
