- Genre: Action
In Dodge 'Em (1980), you control a race car on a four lane track, and your goal is to collect all of the dots in order to earn points and advance to the next level. The race track is divided into four quadrants with a break in the lanes between them, and you can change lanes only within these breaks. A second car will travel in the opposite direction and try to get into your lane and crash you, so you need to make sure you switch to any lane it isn't in! You can travel at two different speeds (fast and slow) and even have a second player control the enemy car.

In this mesmerizing movie, yep2yel and morningpee speed around the track and beat the first round of the game in under 55 seconds. In doing so, they improve the previous movie by 11.28 seconds thanks to new routes and speed tricks.

Frogger is the classic game where you must lead five frogs in each level across a road and a river to the safety of their homes while avoiding hazards like cars and trucks, crocodiles, and a venomous snake.

The author, TASeditor, plays through the first five levels, after which there is no new content.

To see another port of the original arcade game beaten quickly, see the MSX version run. We also have a run of the sequel to the original game.

- Heavy luck manipulation
- Genre: Action
Entirely unrelated to the TV series seaQuest DSV, Seaquest is a submarine combat game in which you control a water vessel and must pick up divers at different levels of depth while avoiding fish and enemy subs. While most of the game takes place underwater, you also must resurface for air from time to time so your air meter doesn't run out.

Like Tetris, the game ends when the score reaches the maximum 999999. This run by morningpee aims to reach this score as fast as possible.

morningpee accomplishes this through manipulating diver and enemy spawn points and using a glitch to freeze an enemy sub, allowing him to collide with it until the maximum score is reached. A lot of effort was put into figuring out the game's RNG and the optimal point to use the No-Despawn glitch; for more information, see the author's comments.

Note: While this movie does obsolete one that's nine times shorter, that run only played through one level, while this one plays all six.

- Genre: Shooter
Death Star Battle is loosely based on the events of the film Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi. Your task is to destroy the Death Star before its construction is finished. You start the task outside the shield perimeter of the Death Star, where you have to combat different imperial vessels and avoid the death ray while waiting for an opportunity to slip through one of the random openings in the energy shield. After reaching the Death Star, you must reduce its structure up to the point where you can hit the core. In the following destruction of the station, you must avoid collision with the Death Star's debris.

It was decided that only the first round of the game contains meaningful content, so in this TAS, jlun2 uses luck manipulation and a precise shooting angle to finish it in less than 9 seconds. It is the second shortest movie on this site, with CD-Man beating it by around five seconds.

Choplifter is one of the few games that got ported from home systems to the arcade instead of the other way around. The goal of the game is to pilot an attack chopper to rescue 64 hostages from the clutches of the evil Bungeling Empire.

Besides being fun to play in real-time, it's also a great game for TASing. It has fast-paced and lag-free gameplay, nice graphics, and simple mechanics. Both moving up and down and rotating the helicopter don't decrease your horizontal speed, which is great for both optimization and entertainment.

In this run, CoolKirby uses tool-assisted precision and tricks like blasting open enemy camps as soon as possible to beat the game in under three minutes.

Award - Exotic platforms TAS of 2014
Magician Lord puts you in control of Elta, a wizard who has the task of retrieving eight books of wisdom from the clutches of Az Atorse, the god of destruction. By collecting certain powerups along the way, you can transform into different characters, including Rajin, Samurai, Waterman, Shinobi, Poseidon, and Dragon Warrior. Each transformation makes Elta more powerful and grants him new attacks.

Watch £e Nécroyeur blaze through the game with heavy abuse of a zipping glitch and, well, blazes.

This run improves upon its previous iteration not by time improvement, but by deciding to end the game faster rather than ending input faster; this results in a slightly longer input time, but skips out a big waiting period from the previous run.

In Neo Turf Masters, you can pick one of six available golfers and compete on a number of golf courses around the world, including Japan (Fujiyama Oriental Golf Club), America (Grand Canyon Golf Course), Australia (Blue Lagoon Golf Course), and Germany (Baden Golf Course). The game features two modes of play: Stroke Play, in which the player attempts to get the best score by playing all 18 holes, and Match Play, in which two players compete to see who can win more of the 18 holes.

This run by mamuuuut plays the toughest course (Australia) and aims to get the lowest (best) final score while showing off unusual or unexpected paths.

Jazz Jackrabbit is one of the earliest products released by what was then known as Epic MegaGames, better known these days for producing the Unreal engine. It was viewed initially as being a pastiche of the Sonic the Hedgehog games was and arguably developed along those lines, bearing much of the same fast platformer action.

Dawn of Sorrow (2005), the first installment of Castlevania on Nintendo DS, is a direct sequel to GBA hit Aria of Sorrow. Everyone is trying to kill our hero Soma Cruz, since in the previous game he absorbed all of Dracula's attributes. Leave it to weird cults to try and bring about the end of the world by unleashing this power.

The game is so fully broken at this point that there really is no plot in this run. Or final boss. Or much of anything at all. Using movement optimizations and a new zip, this movie completes the game 19.33 seconds faster than its predecessor. More details about the glitches can be found in the author's comments.

Kingdom Hearts Re:coded is a remake of the mobile game Kingdom Hearts coded, released in North America in 2011. It is notable for combining many elements from previous handheld games in the Kingdom Hearts series, in particular 358/2 Days and Birth by Sleep.

In this spin-off game based on Metroid Prime, Samus gets knocked and rolled around a pinball table in Morph Ball form. The table contains Metroids, which can latch onto her and suck away health. Tables initially include the surface of Tallon IV, the Pirate Frigate, the Phazon Mines, and Phendrana Drifts, though more can be unlocked by finding and collecting Artifacts, which are found by destroying Space Pirates and other dangerous creatures in certain missions.

In this TAS, Mothrayas extensively uses the game's nudging mechanic to give additional momentum and control to the ball's trajectory, along with crazy pinball action to collect the twelve Chozo Artifacts and beat the final boss as fast as possible.

Without warning, the forces of Blue Moon mount an assault on the nation of Orange Star. Only Orange Star's new advisor, in collaboration with Orange Star's commanding officers, can stop them and get to the truth behind this sinister plot.

At least, that's what they'd normally do if they weren't capable of just magically compelling their opponents to surrender at the sight of them.

Using a glitch in the design maps mode of the game, this run by Kiske and mtvf1 completes the game impossibly quickly by forcing opponents to yield, allowing instant wins in the campaign missions.

Those who greatly dislike that Aria of Sorrow's main character isn't related to the Belmont clan whatsoever can safely relax, because the powerhouse known as Julius Belmont enters the stage in the relatively short run of this Castlevania installment.

Julius is only available to those who have completed the main quest. While he can't do most of Soma Cruz's fancy tricks, he can get around just as quickly by glitching through walls and hopping madly around the castle, producing almost inhuman sounds with every jump.

This is an improvement of 3.70 seconds over the previous publication.

Based on the animated film from DreamWorks, Madagascar follows Alex, Marty, Melman and Gloria as they attempt to stop Marty from leaving New York's Central Park Zoo and accidentally wind up in Madagascar. As the game progresses, the animals develop new skills to help them explore the island, such as the stealth crawl, the sneeze jump, and the claw climb.

The game also features the ability to switch between up to four characters at any time. This enables a host of new routes and tricks like rapidly switching characters to prevent damage knockback and enable a triple jump.

In this run, CoolKirby and YoungJ1997lol utilize these tricks to speed through the movie's plot in under half an hour.

Oddworld: Munchs Oddysee tells the story of Munch, a frog-like creature, fighting to prevent its kind to become extinct. But he is not alone is his quest; Abe, the Mudokon, will lend him a helpful hand.

In this run, Dooty beats the game in record time by using some major glitches to pass through many walls. Expect the screen to look pretty glitchy for a lot of the run.

- Takes damage to save time
- Heavy luck manipulation
- Genre: RPG
Pokémon: FireRed Version is an enhanced version of the original Pokémon: Red Version. Many glitches have been removed, and the random mechanics behind wild encounters have changed. This leads to very different strategies compared to our fastest runs on the original generation of games, and as a result, runs of this game see much more of the plot.

Watch as MKDasher crushes this game using Clefable (the first evolved form of Clefairy) and lots of luck manipulation. This run improves the previous version by over 2 minutes by fighting most battles with Clefable instead of Squirtle and using Metronome (which picks a random move to use from all moves in the game) against the Elite Four.


There is also an encode here that contains interesting data like PP left for each move, Pokémon stats, and some commentary on the run alongside the video.

Spyro: Attack of the Rhynocs, known as Spyro Adventure in Europe, is an isometric platform game in the Spyro the Dragon series. One of the Professor's inventions has inadvertently torn a large hole in the fabric of space and time, creating a portal between the Rhynoc Lands and the Dragon Realms. Naturally, Ripto takes full advantage of this by sending his armies of rhynocs through the portal to wreak havoc. Spyro must find somehow find a way to close the portal before Ripto succeeds in taking over the Dragon Realms.

In this run, EgixBacon zips through the game, using precision and a few tricks to take down Ripto in a little under 17 minutes. He also improves his previous run by over two minutes through new sequence breaks and optimizations.

Tekken Advance is a fighting game in the Tekken series. While it is not considered canon to the Tekken storyline, it follows the events of Tekken 3 and includes most of the characters. It also features new stun mechanics.

This run, done using the hardest difficulty and one round per opponent, uses careful luck manipulation and Paul's powerful Burning Fist to take out everyone as fast as possible. Input is ended early to show the founder of the King of Iron Fist tournament unable to hit an opponent who isn't even fighting back.

X-Men: The Official Game is Activision's tie-in video game to the 2006 film X-Men: The Last Stand. It is mostly a paint-by-numbers X-Men game, which is a good thing.

In this TAS, TehBerral makes extensive use of Nightcrawler's teleport glitch in later stages in order to blaze through the game and defeat Master Mold in record time.

The improvement to the previous run comes from better optimization with said teleport glitch, making the run much more chaotic (and 3 minutes faster).

The Glukkons use the bones to make Soul Storm Brew. Abe's vocabulary is limited to "Hello", "Follow me" "Wait" and "Work". He must use these commands to direct slave Mudokons to their freedom. When enough slaves in a level have been saved, you go on to the next level to do it all again.

Pokémon: Silver Version takes place 3 years after Blue, Red and Yellow, and puts the player in a brand new world: Johto. The gameplay is very similar to the previous games, but with several improvements, including new functions for the player's PokéGear, a Pokédex that can now be sorted by evolution type, and of course, new Pokémon.

In this run, MrWint uses a glitch involving the Coin Case to execute arbitrary code and finish the game 24 minutes faster than the previous version. As with his TASes of Red Version, the entire input file was generated by a computer program that brute forced the game for optimal luck manipulation. The expansive testing done by the program is the reason for the astronomical rerecord count.

We also have a run of a second generation Pokémon game that avoids corrupting the memory.

Rockman DX3, also known as Zook Hero 2, is an an unlicensed pirate game developed by Vast Fame that rips gameplay off the Rockman X series. Just like Rockman X, there are eight stages, and six of them contain a boss who gives you his weapon upon defeat. The protagonist, Zook, also has abilities nearly identical to those of X. Despite these similarities, the code and graphics appear to be completely original and the music is actually decent.

Unlike the other run of this game, this run uses a release that doesn't have all stages unlocked from the start, which means all bosses must be defeated and all upgrades obtained first before Zook can tackle the final stages.

We also have a run of this game's prequel, Zook Hero Z.

Tintin: Prisoners of the Sun is the second of two licensed games based on the Tintin comic series. It adapts the two-part story of the comic albums The Seven Crystal Balls and Prisoners of the Sun into an interactive game.

The game's physics are very similar to those of the other Tintin game, though there are some slight differences. Among them, the B button now doubles as a crouch button and the hardest difficulty gives Tintin only three health points compared to the previous game's four.

In this run, Mothrayas uses movement tricks and some shortcuts to beat the game in under 20 minutes.

Pokémon: Red Version is part of the first generation of games within its famous series, known for having a very large number of beneficial glitches. In fact, the game can be completed in less than one minute of in-game time by save data corruption as shown by this run, and it can be completed in under half an hour using a more "conventional" glitch, as shown by this run. These runs break the game, and avoid much of the gameplay intended by the developers.

In contrast, this run by MrWint catches all 151 Pokémon and completes the game, showing off much more of the game than seen in the other runs while still using many glitches to complete this goal much faster than the programmers could have imagined. Thanks to some new glitches, this run is over an hour faster than the previous movie in this category! For more details about the techniques used in this run, please read the author's notes.

Ash reveals his dark side, using save corruption and direct memory manipulation to catch 64 of the 151 Pokémon in the blink of an eye. Then he beats the game in less than a minute (in-game time) - without ever leaving his own room, bypassing Professor Oak's speech and skipping right to the high praise for his impressive stats.

This run is so glitchy that it's near impossible to follow what's going on without help; reading the author's notes is highly recommended.

To see a run of the first generation of Pokémon that doesn't take advantage of save data corruption, watch this movie.

Note: Although this movie appears to be slower than the one it obsoleted, it is actually 66 frames faster. The reason for the slower time is that the emulator used in this run is more accurate and runs at the correct, slightly slower framerate.

Pokémon: Red Version is part of the first generation of games within its famous series, known for having a very large number of beneficial glitches. In fact, the game can be completed in less than one minute of in-game time using save data corruption (as evidenced by this run), but this run avoids such techniques in favor of activating an entirely different glitch.

This run obsoletes the author's previous run as well as Primorial#soup's longstanding run through a new route that must be seen to be believed. Suffice to say, no heavy glitches are used and yet the game is still completed in around 22 minutes.

To see even more of Pokémon: Red Version, check out the run that catches all 151 Pokémon.

This is the second and last true Mario game for the Game Boy. It features unique power-ups like carrots and bubbles, and allows the player to go through each of the worlds in any order. It also meant the first appearance of Wario, who would become a staple character for Nintendo.

This run improves the previous movie by 1:28.01, abusing the recently discovered "pause glitch" to execute arbitrary code and jump straight to the credits.

- Best ending
- Genre: Racing
The Crash Dummies need to earn some money so they've taken on some odd jobs. And when it comes to Crash Dummies, the odder the better. Although it shares the same name, this game greatly differs from the NES version and other platforms. You play as crash dummy Slick, trying to earn money. The better you do, the more money you earn. If you don't earn enough, you must redo the level. The levels vary with events like diving off a building as a movie stunt, driving a car to test air-bags, skiing down a mountain, etc. Up to two players can play, alternating.

- Major skip glitch

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

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

Here, Wario decides he doesn't want to do any work, so he glitches out the map and uses a jet hat to corrupt the game's memory. After reaching an otherwise unreachable debug menu, he sets up a skip to the end of the game and demands his prize.

As this movie may be confusing to watch, reading the author's comments is recommended. The author, McHazard, has also completed another run of Wario Land that avoids heavy glitches.

In this TAS, only the mandatory levels are completed, leading to a much shorter completion time than the 100% run done by the same author.

Luigi wins a mansion in a contest and his brother, Mario, goes missing there. It is your goal to search the haunted mansion to figure out where he is. Your weapons to protect you are a flashlight and the Poltergust 3000, a ghost vacuum. Capturing ghosts and collecting keys helps you progress in your quest to find Mario.

The author, solarplex, utilizes out-of-bounds glitches to skip 19 of the 23 Portrait Ghosts and all of the Boos (except King Boo), beating the whole game in around 10 minutes with TAS timing, or 8:28:52 with RTA timing.


This run plays the Hidden Mansion, a mode unlocked after beating the game once that increases the power of the Poltergust and allows skipping some cutscenes, to make the run more entertaining. We do not normally accept runs that start from dirty SRAM; see the rules for more details.

Rayman 3: Hoodlum Havoc is the third major platform game installment in the Rayman series. It tells the story of how Rayman stops André, an evil black lum, from taking over the world with his army of sack-like "Hoodlum" soldiers. Unlike the game's predecessor, Rayman 3 took a more light-hearted turn; it has sarcastic self-referential undertones and pokes fun at the platforming video game genre.

In this run, Got4n & Andzura abuse many different glitches to skip large parts of levels and even some boss fights. A full list of glitches used and abused can be found in the submission text.

Resident Evil 4 features a completely new story and an innovative "over-the-shoulder" third person perspective that replaces the fixed camera system of the previous three Resident Evil games.

Special agent Leon Kennedy is on a mission to rescue Ashley Graham, the daughter of the U.S. President, from a sinister cult in a remote rural part of Europe. Leon must fight hordes of violent villagers and mutated monsters on his way to save her.

The Mercenaries is an unlockable minigame in Resident Evil 4. It is unlocked by completing the main game regardless of difficulty.

The objective of the game is to kill enemies to earn points before the evacuation chopper arrives in the allotted time.

In this run, Ubercapitalist plays through the Castle level of The Mercenaries game mode using Wesker. He obtains the maximum amount of kills and the highest score using multiple weapons and major amount of luck and spawn manipulation. Ubercapitalist explains in great detail his process in the submission text.

For those who want to watch the run without all of those item pickups, Ubercapitalist has provided an "Artist's Cut" of the movie here.

Back to the Future III is a collection of four arcade games. Marty McFly and Doc Brown have traveled back through time to the year 1885 – and they're soon deep in trouble when they face "Mad Dog" Tannen's gang and have to find a way to return to the present. This game takes four scenes from the Hollywood movie Back to the Future III and turns them into arcade sequences: Buckboard Chase, Shooting Gallery, Pie Throwing, and The Train.

Note that the Genesis version is normally this dark due to a programming error in the game, and not an emulation bug.

Author Kiske runs through this short game using superhuman movements and a pause trick to manipulate luck.

This version of Duke Nukem 3D was released exclusively in Brazil. The gameplay is fundamentally the same and has the player blasting invading aliens from Duke's point of view. It consists of nine levels based on the PC's Lunar Apocalypse episode and a range of enemies and weapons from the original game. The difficulty has been raised significantly, and the framerate is noticeably reduced. The port also makes heavy use of scanlines and a smaller window size to reduce the overall render load.

Dimon12321 follows the fastest path through each of the maps, and moves extra quickly by running and strafing at the same time.

During the prolonged campaign known as the Goblin Wars, the Goblin Army gathered one night to amass a final assault upon Duke Hector Barrik's Castle. In the middle of this decisive battle, however, both armies were suddenly interrupted by a great earthquake as a vortex violently manifested itself in the midnight sky. Friend and foes alike were sucked up and taken into this void. On the other side, the Duke's Castle and its inhabitants mysteriously found themselves deposited within a hollow valley, securely guarded by impossibly high cliffs illuminated by a flaring red sun overhead. Per the Duke's urgent request, four adventurers are summoned and commissioned with the task of exploring this strange new land, in hopes of finding allies to establish trade with.

In ars4326's run, the ground work laid by the previous TASer, A Jesus Fan, is improved upon in this 7+ minute improvement. Most notably, only a single Thief is used throughout due to a programming exploit which allows him to inflict waves of constant critical damage while fighting in dungeons. In addition, a newly discovered reloading trick is used to skip the game's only required overworld fight in the Azcan Jungle. Also, new route strategies and movement optimizations are featured.

Finally, the ending input has been corrected to showcase the game's entire ending upon completing the final dungeon.

Ecco the Dolphin is a game where you control a fast, but hard to maneuver dolphin who travels into hostile environment to save the other dolphins after a freak waterspout storm.

This run improves the previous one through better execution, a new route and new glitches. As in the previous run, damage is avoided, as it almost always slows Ecco down. At the same time, a major new glitch allowing Ecco to go through nearly any wall was not used because the frequency of its use would make the run very repetitive.

Langrisser 2 (ラングリッサー2) is the acclaimed sequel to Warsong, never finding its way to an official release in English.

You are placed into the role of Elwin (descendent of Garrett/Redin), a wandering Swordsman who stops to rest from his journey at a small, obscure village. He soon finds himself, however, in a sudden conflict between an elite detachment of the Rayguard Empire and a peculiar young woman whom they are attempting to abduct. In desperation, her childhood friend Hein rushes toward Elwin and urgently pleads him to help fight off and thwart the Empire's plans. So much for rest...

Who is this young woman? Why is a major military power intent on capturing her? And what's this have to do with a legendary holy blade?

In ars4326's run, cunning strategy combines with heavy luck manipulation to produce a speedrun that completes all of the game's accessible stages (27 normal and 3 'hidden') in just under 2 hours. Virtually no level-grinding is found in this action-packed playthrough as Elwin & Co. seek to stop an Emperor's plans of uniting the continent with the power of an ancient demon sword!

This is a strange platformer where the main character, Michael Jackson, has an obsession with doing weird movements and occasionally dances together with the enemies before beating them to oblivion.

This run by Odongdong obsoletes a nearly 9-year old movie by nearly 4 minutes through new routes, new tricks, and a lot of optimization.

The Genesis version of RoboCop 3 is a side-scrolling platform shooter. You get missions (such as rescuing your colleagues who are being kept hostage), which are divided into several smaller levels. The levels usually consist of several platforms, and are heavily populated by enemies who shoot at you. You can gather special repair kits, which will be used to restore your health after you've completed a level. RoboCop 3 is more of a shooter than its predecessors, having more and tougher enemies. Compared to the NES version, there is no zonal system damage; there are different levels, weapons and enemies.

The author of this TAS blazes through this game on the hardest difficulty in record time.

Another Sonic 3 & Knuckles TAS, but with Amy Rose this time. Unlike the three main characters, she wields a hammer as her weapon, and WST & marzojr use it to great effect in glitching through the game. For more details, see the run's comments.


Each second link or set of encodes uses a camhack, which forces the camera to focus on Amy while keeping the sprites on the foreground layer.

This run of Sonic 3 & Knuckles collects the maximum number of rings possible to get with Knuckles. This leads to some interesting routes to reach out-of-the-way rings as well as opportunities to show off some new glitches.

See the floating island like never before as you tag along with Knuckles, and try to keep up as he patrols his territory while foraging for rings and revealing secrets that show why he is truly the sole guardian of the island.

We also have runs with Sonic and Tails, Tails, Sonic 100%,Knuckles 100%, and Sonic on NewGame+.

Sonic's gone to plaid in the latest TAS by marzojr. It starts from a savestate to take advantage of Hyper Sonic from the beginning of the game. (For more details, see the note below and the run's comments.)

WARNING: The awesomeness of Hyper Sonic may damage your eyes or trigger seizures in susceptible people.


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

To download a savestate for this movie, use this link for Gens version 11a or this link for Gens version 11b.

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

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

This latest effort by Aglar and marzojr represents the first published improvement of this run in over four years, and the first time since this run, over seven years ago, that the authors replayed the entire game instead of replaying only select levels and then splicing input from the previous movie. Every single level is faster, and there are some surprising new glitches in several stages. For more details, see the run's comments.


The downloadable encodes in the second set use a camhack, which attempts to always keep Sonic onscreen and puts HD sprites on top of the background to make the TAS look even better.

Sonic bounces around surprisingly fast. The lack of Spin Dash makes the strategy a bit different from that of Sonic 2 and Sonic 3 & Knuckles runs, since preserving your momentum becomes a lot more important. However, this doesn't prevent the author from achieving crazy velocities even with such a significant limitation. In this run, the game is completed without collecting any emeralds.

This is the eighth run of this game, improving on the previous effort by 3.18 (of in-game time), primarily due to higher optimization.

To see a movie of this game that doesn't take advantage of zips, watch the "no zips" run by Aglar.

Spoiler: Hover over the screenshot.

See this run played back on a real Genesis.

- Heavy luck manipulation
- Genre: RPG
Sorcerer's Kingdom is a turn-based RPG published by Treco in 1992. In addition to an exceptional soundtrack, the game features a leveling system similar to Final Fantasy 2 (NES), in that your characters gain stats based on the actions they perform in combat. The plot places you in the role of a young man whose renowned father turns up missing after seeking to rid the Kingdom of an ultimate evil power. Desiring to follow in his footsteps, the lad seeks an audience with the King to set out as an adventurer, himself.

Normally, this game requires ample amounts of grinding up your OFFENSE stat in order to damage bosses. ars4326's run minimizes this aspect down to its bare requirements, by using heavy luck manipulation and exploiting the game's leveling system. In doing so, the final boss is slain in just under one hour. Not bad for a day's work!

This is a hacked version of Sonic the Hedgehog. The title character is replaced by his sidekick, Miles "Tails" Prower. The levels remain unchanged.

There is more than just an appearance change to this game. Tails' abilities remain intact. If you haven't seen Sonic the Hedgehog completed before, you may wish to do so before seeing what a character with flight and a spindash can accomplish.

There is also a run for a Knuckles hack of Sonic the Hedgehog, done by JXQ. It replaces Tails with Knuckles and flying with climbing and gliding.

New tricks, more precision and tricks from the newest Sonic run combine to a movie that is 57.75 faster than the previous version.


Note: An IPS patch for the hack can be downloaded here: http://tasvideos-moviefiles.googlecode.com/files/ips%2Bpatcher.zip . It must be patched to REV 00.

ToeJam and Earl in Panic on Funkotron is the sequel to the first ToeJam and Earl game for the Sega Genesis. Both games are well-known for their distinctive funk soundtracks. However, unlike the first game, which has randomly generated levels, this game is more of a conventional side-scrolling platformer.

In this game, Funkotron has been invaded by Earthlings, and it's up to our heroes to fix the problem by capturing Earthlings in Trap-o-matic jars and sending the jars to Earth on rocketships. Early in the game, you'll see ToeJam visit a special area called the Hyperfunk Zone multiple times. After these visits, he has unlimited use of superjars, which require fewer throws to bottle enemies than ordinary jars do.

This run gets the good ending by finding the 10 favorite items of Lamont, the Great Funkapotamus. All of the items are needed to get Lamont out of the Funk Dimension at the end of the game. The objects themselves are hidden in secret doors, most of which don't even exist until you've officially asked your friends for directions, but a few can be entered early without the need to trigger the dialogue.

Originally known as Minato no Traysia (港のトレイジア) in Japan, this turn-based RPG adventure doesn’t involve the typical ‘save the world’ or ‘vanquish the ultimate evil’ plotline. Not this time around. It’s actually themed around a young man’s sweetheart named Traysia, as he sets out from his hometown to fulfill his dream of exploring the world (vanquishing evil is involved, however).

ars4326’s run showcases two noteworthy features in this TAS. Not a single random encounter is fought, and all boss battles are blitzed through by abusing a party member’s rapid attack animation. At times, the game may remind you of a pseudo-shooter instead of a traditional RPG.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Platform
Every one hundred years, the forces of evil mysteriously start to weaken. Though some of these evil creatures band together to counteract this weakness, many of them are still slaughtered by the forces of good. But one day, One, the most evil one, found a way to break this curse and grow only stronger and stronger. Sensing the presence of a cure within the blood of a young woman, he pulled her into the darkness...right before our hero's eyes! Filled with anger, he grabbed his mystical whip and followed One through the night until finding himself at the base of One's fearsome castle. What evil awaits him there? Will he save the girl in time?

The goal in each level of this MSX homebrew game is to find the cleverly hidden white key and use it to open the door to the next level. There are also items that can be picked up along the way to help our hero in his quest.

In this run, scrimpeh manipulates enemy movement and utilizes damage boosts and invincibility frames to beat the game in under 9 minutes.

For another MSX game with very similar gameplay, see the run of Vampire Killer done by the same author.

Mystical Ninja, otherwise known as Ganbare Goemon, is one of Konami's longest-running series, yet remains mostly localized to Japan (thanks in part to cultural differences: the series is very Japanese). This is the first of three games in the series released for the N64.

What begins as a quest to investigate an attack on a castle quickly evolves into a race to stop a plot to transform Japan into... a giant stage.

In this run, a lot of new tricks and some big glitches combine to shave over an hour off the previous publication.

Award - Nintendo 3D TAS of 2014
Although the length of this movie is 20:09.98 when timed with our standard method, applying the timing method used by most Zelda speedrunners (until last hit on Ganon) would result in a final time of 16:57.69. It's important to note this so that there's no confusion about which runs are faster than the others.

In this TAS of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, the author aims to beat the game as quickly as possible. He achieves this by exploiting a large sequence break which involves "tricking" the game into warping Link directly from the Deku Tree (the first dungeon) to Ganon's Castle. Child Link then goes on conquering the whole castle without a single thought about becoming an adult beforehand.

Despite how quickly this game can be beaten these days, this run is almost two minutes faster than its predecessor thanks to new tricks at the Deku Tree and tower collapse sequence as well as many small improvements throughout the run.

This TAS was done using 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 is spent waiting for text boxes and cut scenes to end before getting back to the action.

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.

Alien 3 on the NES is similar to Probe Software's adaptations of the film on other systems. While using the same overall game concept as the Sega and Commodore versions, the NES title has unique levels.

The player controls Ripley through a number of platform levels. She must not only defend herself against hordes of aliens and find the exit, but also save a number of prisoners, all within a tight time limit of only minutes per level.

Armadillo is a young cowboy from Texas, who is in love with Sheryl, the cutest girl of the state. But an evil organization kidnaps his sweetheart. The matters become even more complicated when the famous Billy The Shell also embarks on a quest to save Sheryl. Will Armadillo be able to rescue the girl and to defeat his enemies?

In this game, you move Armadillo around an area map composed of squares. Some of them are empty, while others represent locations. Once you enter a location, you find yourself on a platform level, that often contains several sub-levels. There are sometimes branching ways on the area map, and you are not obliged to access all the locations to clear an area. On the platform levels, Armadillo can either walk and jump in his normal form (dies from single enemy hit), or turn into a ball, which is invulnerable to enemies' attacks, but is hard to control: the ball follows realistic physics, bounces of walls, and takes time to stop rolling. During the game, Armadillo will also be able to find upgrades that will allow him to take an animal's form for a short time.

Author nEilfox's second contribution to Bionic Commando features inhumanly fast grappling and swinging. This run is an improvement of 3.32 seconds over the previous run due to better optimization and a new trick in area 7.

For more swinging goodness, check out these runs of the Game Boy and arcade versions. There is also an "all items" run which completes the optional stages as well.

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). TASVideos has runs playing through the game with each of these characters.

Unlike those other runs, which are played on the Japanese Famicom version of the game, this run uses the USA version. This is because the USA version has a hard-difficulty mode you can access by naming your character "AKAMA" at the start. In this difficulty, you cannot recruit any allies, and there are more enemies that generally do more damage. To make this even harder, Fortranm takes a route that visits the Sunken City as Stage 6, showing off a difficult stage that no other run of this game shows.

Deadly Towers is an infamous 'Nintendo Hard' game, where you control Prince Myer in his quest to destroy seven bells guarded by seven bosses and stop the evil wizard Rubas. The character is slow and takes a lot of damage very easily, making the game usually a great challenge. While there are powerups which boost your abilities, they are generally found in secret passages with no indication of their location.

In this run by ars4326, the Japanese version Mashou (魔鐘) is used due to it containing an inventory glitch that, essentially, gives you unlimited bells after death-warping and defeating Cold Killer twice. New routes, sequence breaking, and movement optimizations are also involved in this updated run.

Gotcha! The Sport! is a video game for the Nintendo Entertainment System that was released in 1987 based on the 1985 film Gotcha!. It is a Capture the Flag-style game played with paintball guns loaded with simulated paintballs.

The player's mission is to get through the level, capture the enemy flag by shooting it, and return it to your base. This is while simultaneously trying not to get shot by the other team, run out of ammo, or run out of time. A light gun is necessary for this game, but one needs to also use the controller. The directional pad will move the screen left and right. Ammo boxes can be found sitting on the ground or carried by enemies in the background. It seems that only misses cost you ammo, so if one's aim is precise, they will receive a significant bonus for leftover ammunition.

There are three levels in the game: Woods, Warehouse District and Snow Fields. The Woods and Snow Fields levels feature enemies in military garb, while the Warehouse District features enemies modeled after early 1980s punks. These rounds repeat in this order infinitely; each time around, the reaction time needed for the enemies to aim and fire is reduced.

In this run, adelikat uses his amazing uber-Aimbot skills to decimate anyone and everyone who stands in his way to capture the flag. This movie is a demonstration of NES Zapper support in the most recent versions of BizHawk, and is the first movie to use the new bk2 file format for BizHawk.

Notable for once being one of the hardest Super Mario Bros. hacks ever made, Hard Relay Mario (2004) is more like a puzzle game with its cryptic and difficult level layouts.

In this run, made over the course of two and a half years, watch as HappyLee abuses the game engine to its fullest, finishing the game in the time it would normally take to get past the first few obstacles.

To see the game as it was meant to be played, you can also watch HappyLee beat the original game in his "warps" and "warpless" runs.

Note: Due to how similar Air 2 is to this game, this game obsoletes it as it is overall more entertaining to watch.

Hydlide is an old and somewhat notorious game, mostly because it has very strange gameplay mechanics. For the first part of the game, walking consumes health, and the character must stop every now and then to regain it.

This is one of the few games (the only one?) where the level grinding sequences are actually entertaining, while the boss fights aren't. Hitting a boss decreases your own health as well as the boss's, after which there is much waiting for more health until you can hit him again.

This is an improvement of 3:54.79 over the previous TAS, due to overall better levelling strategy and route planning.

There is also a submitted TAS that uses codes and removes the need to level grind or wait for health.

Kamen no Ninja: Akakage, or "Masked Ninja: Akakage", is a Famicom-exclusive video game based on the 1987 anime series of the same name (which itself is a remake of the 1967 Akakage tokusatsu). While the game mainly features the Red Shadow, Akakage, you can also freely switch to Aokage (a young boy) and Shirokage (an old man).

This run by mtvf1 mostly uses Akakage for his superior arsenal of weapons, but switches to Aokage at a few points when the young ninja can move faster.

Kyatto Ninden Teyandee is a side-scrolling action game in the style of Ninja Gaiden, based off the Japanese TV show produced in 1990 by Tatsunoko Productions and Sotsu Agency. The show was localized in the USA as Samurai Pizza Cats.

There are eleven stages in total, and you can play as any of the main Secret Ninja Team Nyankii members. They include Yattaro, leader of the team, who uses his Cat's Eye Sword as his main weapon; Pururun, the only female on the team, who attacks with projectiles and her razor-sharp nails; and Sukashii, who uses an umbrella to dispatch his enemies. In this run, you'll see a lot of use of the cat who can fly to create shortcuts, but the other cats are used from time to time for their special abilities.

In this game, there's an important bug in which Yattaro can perform a Level-3 ninpo attack on the very first frame of a boss fight and kill the boss immediately. This works for every level except the second.

This run is an improvement over the previous run by about six seconds due to a new shortcut in level 6.

Mario and Luigi, the best plumbers in the world, have a real job on their hands. A host of characters have taken over the sewers, and the brothers must clear them out of the pipes.

The platform puzzle which first introduced Luigi to the world has both single and multiplayer action with two differing game types. Crabs, turtles and fighter flies must be cleared out by jumping underneath the platform they're on, then kicking them away. Each level is cleared when all of the enemies are defeated.

This time around, Spikestuff plays on the American version, as it has fewer phases and also has a pause bug not present in the European version, which allows Mario and Luigi to pass through floors. This is especially useful in the Test Your Skill stages, and allows for a faster completion of them. Like in the European version, the Bros.' potential for both hilarious antics and impressive teamwork is nicely demonstrated here.

Mario and Luigi, the best plumbers in the world, have a real job on their hands. A host of characters have taken over the sewers, and the brothers must clear them out of the pipes.

The platform puzzle which first introduced Luigi to the world has both single and multiplayer action with two differing game types. Crabs, turtles and fighter flies must be cleared out by jumping underneath the platform they're on, then kicking them away. Each level is cleared when all of the enemies are defeated.

In this TAS, Spikestuff plays on the European version for its greater difficulty and completes one round (23 phases). The Bros.' potential for both hilarious antics and impressive teamwork is nicely demonstrated here.

If you're itching for more Mario Bros. action, we also have a run on the American version.

Mega Man is the first game in the famous series that now comprises games on many different systems as well as several television shows and comic books.

While the other run of this game uses lots of tricks to reach the ending impressively quickly, pirohiko and FinalFighter decided it just wasn't fast enough. In this run, they manipulate an object to appear which allows them to execute arbitrary code and warp to the credits, all using only controller input. For an advanced explanation of how it works, check out the submission text.

Originally made in 2008, watch as unagi quickly blazes through this puzzle game, coloring all squares while getting some unexpected help from a certain little bugger.

Quattro Adventure is a cart of 4 games released by Camerica in 1991. One of these 4 games is the platformer Super Robin Hood which is the subject of the current run. The game is unique in its use of hidden 'keys' that open various secret passages allowing the player access to faster routes. Combine this with a developer intended warp and major collision detection glitch and you get the current run of the game in under 5 minutes.

In River City Ransom, Alex and Ryan face off against gangs of students and evil bosses to win their town back and rescue their girlfriends. Several bosses need to be found and beaten before you can enter River City High and beat up the final bad guys (including an obvious imitation of the Double Dragon heroes). The gameplay also has elements of an RPG, where you can level up your character with shop purchases, but none of that is done here.

A glitch that is abused often in this run, pressing Left and Right at the same time, causes the player character to do all sorts of crazy things and usually lose all of his power. This is done to reduce lag during running segments and abuse collision detection.

This run obsoletes the previous one by nearly a minute due to much more optimization of boss fights and some new tricks. Weapons are also used more, so expect to see some chains and trash cans!

This is a run that only uses Ryan, who is normally Player 2. This has some very important differences compared to the two-player speedrun. One cutscene is significantly shorter when playing only as Ryan. There is less lag, though there are also fewer glitches and acrobatics. More boss fights, especially at the end, use the boss's superior strength against him, taking advantage of an exploit with kicking trash cans. For more details, see the run's submission comments.

Silent Assault is an unlicensed game developed by Joy Van and published by Color Dreams in 1990. In this game, an alien force has somehow taken control of all of Earth's military forces. However, the player character is not under the alien power's control, meaning he's the only one who can fight back. Said character now has to fight through enemy military and alien forces over the course of 8 levels of varying awfulness.

The author of this TAS runs through the game in only 5 minutes and 26.91 seconds.

Solar Jetman is a space adventure game where the main excitement comes from the physics of the game. In the game, you explore planets with a small module you fly around, towing fuel tanks and other artifacts back to the mother ship, often from planets with a ridiculous level of gravity and narrow hazardous caverns. Anyone who has played this game surely knows how difficult it can be, while being entertaining for hours after hours.

No passwords were used in this movie, although a few warps were used to skip stages.

This movie features many changes compared to the previous author's movie, leading to an improvement of about 7 minutes. There's a new warp in the very beginning. A different module is purchased, which lets the player tow wormholes closer to the fuel items you have to collect and allows for some new physics abuse. Some different items are used, such as anti-gravity items. For more details, see the submission comments.


There is some commentary by the author in the emulator movie file and in the primary (HQ) encode.

Bowser has kidnapped the princess (again) and Mario must save the day. But this time through, he takes a stroll. Nothing bothers Mario as he walks through all the stages, sometimes backwards, on his way to save the princess.

This movie demonstrates that it's possible to complete every single stage without pressing the B button. Having been bothered by the lack of running and shooting in this game, the ending outright asks the player to press B.

This movie also improves the previous one by 9.31 seconds through new strategies and better optimization.

While decidedly not the same game, the Super Mario Bros. games on the NES are similar enough in game mechanics and controls that all four of them can be played at once with the same input.

This second version of the quad-run utilizes the credits glitch found in the newest Super Mario Bros. 3 run. As such, the focus is now on finishing Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels as fast as possible, allowing Super Mario Bros. 3 to entertain while waiting for the other three games to progress. The run also features an ending that may surprise you.

If you like this movie, you may want to check out some other movies in which multiple games are played simultaneously with one controller.

This movie has been played back and verified on console during SGDQ 2016.

Award - NES TAS of 2014
Super Mario Bros 3 is a very famous game for the NES. There are normally two main ways to beat it: the quick way using warp whistles to skip worlds, and the longer way which goes through all the worlds. However, thanks to some esoteric memory corruption involving glitched pipe travel, it's possible to jump right into the princess's room in under three minutes! Bowser is never seen in this run at all.

This run gets to World 7-1 as quickly as possible to perform the glitch, and some unusual moves are done with enemy spawns and positions to get the glitch to work. See the authors' comments for some more details.


There are also author subtitles provided with the emulator movie file and primary encode to explain some of the key differences in this run.

Watch this run on a real NES. And here is how human beings perform the same glitch in real time.

Tengen Tetris is a version of Tetris made by Atari, which pretty much follows the basic formula of stacking tetrominoes and completing lines. Even the theme music has a similar feel to the more familiar NES Tetris game by Nintendo.

This movie plays through just the final level, level 17, and clocks in at just over one line per second. Notably, luck manipulation does not work the same way in this game as in other versions of Tetris, leading to quite different strategies.

The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle is an awful licensed game based on The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show. The game consists of five episodes (stages) of terribly bad side-scrolling platform action. Players can switch control on the fly to either Bullwinkle or Rocky and will have to do this as each character has their own unique abilities. While both characters can jump and throw bombs, only Rocky possesses the ability to fly while Bullwinkle can charge enemies with his antlers. Both of these abilities sap energy for no reason.

Luckily, TASeditor abuses a glitch in which holding Select sort of freezes the condition of the character, meaning it doesn't cost energy while going fast. Therefore, he reaches a time of just under 4 minutes.

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

This time, Link is not just satisfied with collecting the Triforce and saving the princess; he feels like getting through Hyrule with a lot of shiny artifacts and weapons, even if he never uses them after getting them. In this run, the player collects the best version of every object and status upgrade, including all the heart containers, every inventory item, the best sword, and both bomb upgrades. Link even buys the Bait an extra time more than required, so that the bait remains in his inventory at the end of the game. For more details about what constitutes a 100% run, see the submission comments.

We also have other runs for The Legend of Zelda: an any% run through the first quest, a 'swordless' first-quest run, and an any% run through the second quest.

Treasure Master is a side-scrolling action game that sends your character on a quest of treasure acquisition. Jump your way through a variety of world environments including the islands, microprocessor-level circuitry, and the moon, and accumulate all of the material wealth you can possibly amass. You have a number of enemies to beware of (such as sharks, caterpillars, and springs). But you also have an impressive array of tools to help you in your quest (moon buggy!).

Treasure Master offers the opportunity to collect not only virtual treasure in a video game, but also treasure in the real world. After practicing the game, players had the opportunity to compete for real prizes.

Spoiler: Hover over the screenshot.

In this game you are supposed to hunt down an evil crime syndicate (so what else is new?) by freeing kids from blocks of ice, and capturing the red guys to get clues. Unfortunately the ninja didn't have time for that, he just walks past all baddies and kills the bosses.

The syndicate turns out to be selling drugs, but the Black Manta sets them straight: Drugs kill you think you're cool but you're not. Yeah!

This version is 23.71 seconds faster than the previous version by adelikat. We recommend reading the author's comments for this movie.

This game has a crazy main music theme.

It has also been verified to play back on a real NES console.

Monster Pro Wrestling is a Japanese game in which you choose a monster and battle other monsters in turn-based battles. It is notable for its humorously nonsensical battle animations, such as the appearance of a dozen heads on screen and death blows literally tearing monsters apart.

In this movie, Aqfaq uses well-planned strategy and a fair amount of luck manipulation to defeat each monster in the fewest rounds possible. For more information, check out his detailed submission text.

Not only was Castlevania: Symphony of the Night the first installment of the Castlevania series on PSX but also the first PSX game to have a published run here.

Not satisfied with just going on a death spree to Dracula, Alucard decides to steal every single one of his father's heirlooms, while also killing his prized collection of monsters. Luckily he has the handy ability of phasing through walls whenever he needs to.

A run that beats the game through save data corruption is available here, along with one that avoids data corruption. If you prefer the main character to have muscular bare arms and to pray to the rain gods to defeat bosses, you may enjoy the Richter version. If you want to see a run on Replay mode that can skip many cutscenes, see this run. We also have a run of the Saturn version using Maria. We even have a run where Alucard avoids killing everything except Dracula.


Author's commentary during the run's video can be watched on YouTube.
Note: Due to the lengthy amount of time needed to obtain the best ending in the previous run, this run was deemed significantly more entertaining, and thus obsoletes it.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is the first installment of the Castlevania series on PSX. Follow Dracula's son Alucard as he glitches through the castle on a quest to end his father's life.

This run is played on a Replay save file (not newgame+ because neither experience nor items are carried over) using the Luck Mode command. Using Replay allows the player to skip most cutscenes and alters what the librarian can sell. Using Luck Mode lowers the player's base strength which, among other changes, ironically makes the run faster by enabling a route filled with kicking enemies that wouldn't be possible otherwise.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is the first installment of the Castlevania series on PSX, and was also the very first PSX game to have a published TAS.

Follow Richter (playable after you beat the game once) as he glitches and speeds through the castle on a quest to defeat Dracula. If you like fast sliding, dashing, uppercutting, and using precipitation to defeat bosses, you'll love this run.

This is an improvement of 1.90 over the previous run. You can read the author's comments for more information.

TASVideos also has several runs using Alucard, including a Replay run, a run that aims for fastest time on a clean save, and a run that kills every boss and obtains all relics. We also have a run from the Saturn version using Maria.

Castlevania Chronicles is a PSX remake of the Japan-only X68000 game Akumajō Dracula (悪魔城ドラキュラ), which is a remake of the first Castlevania. In this game, Simon Belmont is out to defeat the evil Count Dracula.

In this run, the author uses Arrange Mode, as it's more suitable for taking damage to save time (Simon loses less HP when getting hit than in Original Mode). He also abuses a trick that allows him to use a subweapon with a shorter attack animation (jumping and whipping before attacking with the subweapon).

Frogger: He's Back! is a late '90s remake of the original arcade classic Frogger. The game sports an updated set of graphics rendered in 3D and several new moves. Frogger must hop left, right, down and up through jungles, busy streets, sewers, and even the clouds to save his five little buddies as well as the golden frogs of myth.

CaneofPacci manages to beat the game in just under 48 minutes while still saving all of the frogs on each level.


Note: Due to an emulator bug, the game music does not dump properly from PSXjin.

In the 22nd century, the scientists, learning the ancient ways of magic, discovered a new technique that made it possible to create artificial beings by mixing the DNA of humans and animals. Those new creatures, known as Gears, had no will of their own and were destined to obey humans forever. However, a Gear named Justice was somehow capable of disobeying the humans and making his own decisions. He organized a rebellion of Gears, that was later repressed by the knights of the Sacred Order. He was thrown into prison, but recently has broken free, and the Order organized a tournament to find out who is capable of hunting him down again. Among the contenders is Sol Badguy, a man with an unclear past, and his rival Ky Kiske, one of the most skilled knights of the order. The conditions of the tournament are, however, very strange. Spilling blood is allowed, and the first prize is the fulfillment of any wish the winner has.

Guilty Gear is a 2D fighting game in which you can play as one of ten very different characters from among Holy Order knights, Armed Air Force soldiers, Mafia members and mad scientists. Each character has his or her own storyline that will be fully revealed during the final showdown. In battles, you can charge up for special attacks as well as perform Deathblow moves, which can kill the opponent instantly. As well as the regular Arcade mode, you can also challenge your friends to a Versus battle.

In this run, Cooljay and N?K choose Ky Kiske and aim for fastest time in Arcade mode using combo moves as well as Destroy, a tough-to-counter move that instant-kills the opponent.

Pepsiman is based on the Japanese Pepsi mascot who appeared in different commercials in Japan. In these he appeared where people were thirsty, quenched the people's thirst, then injured himself most of the time.

The game more or less follows this series of events as you run along stages collecting Pepsi cans, while trying your best to avoid injury or public humiliation. The goal of every stage is to run along a set course, jumping or sliding out of harm's way and in the end reach a vending machine with... you guessed it! Pepsi of course!

N?K beats the game while collecting all the Pepsi cans, in order to achieve '100%' completion.

In Samurai Shodown II, players take on the role of one of fifteen warriors, fighting their way through the land to defeat Rashojin Mizuki, who was thrown into the sea when she was a little girl and has since become a servant of the dark god Ambrosia. N?K destroys all of the opponents using Haohmaru, the main hero in each game of the Samurai Shodown series.

The Samurai Shodown series differs from other well-known fighting games of its time in a couple of ways. First, all characters can use a weapon, usually a sword (or occasional animal friends, like a dog or a falcon). Second, the games focus more on hard hits instead of combos, showing a slowdown effect when powerful strikes are landed.

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

While the other movie of Spyro 2 mainly follows the route intended by the developers, this run by lapogne36 and Crash41596 invents its own path, cutting in and out of the game world at will and completing only the bare minimum needed to reach the final battle.

Award - PSX TAS of 2014
Year of the Dragon is the third installment in the Spyro series and the last Spyro game to be released for the PlayStation, in addition to being the last one created by its original creators.

After many technical issues, this first ever completed TAS of Spyro: Year of the Dragon finishes the game with 100% (in-game 117%) game completion, over an hour faster than any normal speedrun. This is done through carefully planned routes, precisely executed glitches and highly optimized movement.

- Genre: Fighting
Tekken Force, a paramilitary organization protecting the Mishima karate fighters, is nearly obliterated by the mighty Ogre. Heihachi Mishima's only hope is his grandson Jin Kazama, who lives with his mother Jun, unaware of his legacy. When the Ogre attacks his home and presumably kills his mother, Jin seeks out his grandfather and learns the martial arts of the family. On his nineteenth birthday, Heihachi announces the King of the Iron Fist Tournament 3, hoping that Jin will use the opportunity take out the meddlesome Ogre.

Tekken 3, like its predecessors, is a versus fighting game. New features include prominently featured side-stepping, allowing characters to retreat into the background and back during fights, more combo throws, fifteen more characters, and reduced jumping capabilities to allow for more realistic combat. Also included are two minigames: Tekken Force, a beat-em-up stage that unlocks a new character, and Tekken Ball, a beach volleyball variant where characters are hurt by the ball.

This run features Mokujin, who first appears in this game and later appears in all but Tekken 4, where he is temporarily replaced by another character named Combot. Unlike Mokujin, Combot can only mimic a different character's moveset for every match instead of every round. Mokujin is meant truly to test how well you know who you are, how well you can play as said character, whether you can play the matchups you are given, and whether you can keep the opponent from guessing which character you are.

It is 16th century Japan and you are one of two ninja employed by Lord Gohda, an uniquely compassionate samurai lord. As either Rikimaru or Ayame, you must proceed through your assigned quests, at first dispatching the amoral and unsavory folk in your lord's domain. As the game progresses, you will come face to face with greater threats from tengu goblins and oni demons.

A full 3D game in the Tomb Raider spirit, Tenchu focuses on stealth and attacking unseen over straight action. Not being spotted leads to higher scores and better equipment. To aid in this, you can not only creep about and hug walls, but also use your grappling hook.

This run by N?K was done on the Japanese version of the game, Rittai Ninja Katsugeki - Tenchu. Because of significant differences between this version and the USA version, this run was judged not to obsolete the other run of this game.

Tobal 2 is a 3D fighting game developed by Dream Factory and released by Square in Japan in 1997. Unlike its predecessor, Tobal No. 1, this game was not released in North America or PAL regions. There are four modes in the game: Tournament, VS, Training, and Quest.

In Quest mode, dungeons as well as a whole town are freely explorable. It also features role-playing elements and the ability to capture encountered monsters and use them as playable characters in VS Mode. This brings the amount of playable characters in this game to as high as 200.

In this run, pirohiko uses movement glitches and speedy fighting tactics to beat Quest Mode surprisingly fast.

- Genre: Strategy
Electronic Arts brings Blizzard's best-selling strategy game to the PlayStation and Saturn in this release. They've combined all the missions from Warcraft II: Tides of Darkness and its expansion pack, Beyond the Dark Portal, into one package.

You take charge of either the humans and elves or the orcish hordes for control of the lands of Azeroth. Eventually you work through the dark portal and into the orcs' homeland. You take charge of either side as you work through more than 20 missions per side in the fight for survival.

New features for the console release include an auto-build option, where you can set a queue of units to be produced, and the ability to select sixteen units at a time instead of the PC's nine.

This run by Flip plays through the Humans' Tides of Darkness campaign.

For a run of the Orc Campaign by the same author, see this run.

- Contains speed/entertainment tradeoffs
- Genre: Action
- Genre: Puzzle
This TAS runs through the Master Game mode of Bomberman on the Sega Saturn. While the basic gameplay is very similar to any game in the Bomberman series (especially the Super Bomberman SNES runs found at TASVideos), there are some key differences in this run. Rather than having multiple themed worlds with a boss at each, there is one temple with 20 floors and a boss after every four floors. More importantly, though, many important powerups are lost after each floor in the Master Game mode. This means the player needs more creative routes for laying bombs to get the fastest time.

This run by th2o and VicoV runs through the whole game in just over 10 minutes without taking any damage.

- Genre: Platform
Sega's 8-bit systems received a unique adaptation of Disney's 1992 animated film Aladdin.

Like other versions, it is a side-scrolling action game. The player controls Aladdin, making his way through a variety of locations, including the streets of Agrabah, the Cave of Wonders, the Sultan's palace and more. Gameplay takes several different forms: some levels are chases, where Aladdin runs automatically, but must be made to jump over chasms or rolling rocks and barrels, evade falling objects and avoid getting caught by a guard. Other levels are platforming affairs: Aladdin must run, jump and climb, find keys or switches to open doors while searching for the exit. Rocks can be collected and be thrown to dispatch enemies or hit buttons otherwise out of reach. Finally, there are also several magic carpet rides in the game, in which the level scrolls automatically and the player must make sure to avoid any obstacles in the way.

Montezuma's Revenge was one of the first platform games, combining treasure hunting, multiple rooms and puzzle solving. The player controls Panama Joe as he explores labyrinthine 16th century Aztec temples filled with enemies, obstacles, traps and dangers. Panama Joe can jump and climb ladders, but doesn't have much to offer in terms of combat, making it imperative for him to steer clear of enemies.

This run by Calfd skips most of each temple by abusing a bug that lets Panama Joe climb through the air. Calfd plays until the eleventh stage, after which there is no new content.

Chrono Trigger is one of the most dearly loved games from the SNES library. In it, you play as Crono and set off on a journey through time to save the world from the villainous Lavos.

The game can be ripped apart in a matter of minutes through advanced save corruption techniques, but in this movie the author forgoes this exploit in order to play through more of the game, and does so in barely more than half the time of the last run in the same category. Don't expect this run-through to follow a coherent narrative any time soon, though — it still skips quite a lot of content.

- Genre: RPG
Dragon View is a side-scrolling role-playing video game released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in November 1994. Released in Japan as Super Drakkhen and otherwise known as Drakkhen II, it is meant to be a prequel to Drakkhen although it bears little resemblance to its predecessor. It uses the same pseudo-3D overworld system for which the series is most famous. Other features of Dragon View are its side-view action role-playing game (RPG) hybrid gameplay (used when exploring more detailed areas such as towns and dungeons), its well-translated first person storyline, and its emphasis on player-driven undirected exploration.

In this run, Khaz makes the game realize how boring it really is, and has it jump straight to the credits roughly halfway through the intended story. A side effect of this particular glitch is the cutscene after the credits getting glitched out and having the main character walk in place, forever.

More information on how this was achieved can be found in the submission notes.

It's a quiet day at the Mikami Ghost Sweeping Company until a mysterious package arrives. It seems the kindly old storekeeper Yakuchin found a magic statue and figured it would best be kept in Mikami's hands. Of course, where there's magic, there's wealth (or something like that), so Reiko sets out to find the seven gems needed to complete the statue.

GS Mikami: Joreishi wa Nice Body is a side scrolling platform game based on the Ghost Sweeper Mikami manga and anime. The player controls Reiko who can fight off ghosts and monsters with her enchanted baton. The baton can be powered up to shoot lighting or icicles at an angle, but its power is lost if Reiko is hit. Reiko can only hold up to three special weapons, either a scroll that sucks enemies into it, or a gem that freezes time. Each case in the game is either one or two platforming levels long followed by a boss fight.

Kirby Super Star is normally a fairly long game split into a bunch of minigames, as the following run at TASVideos shows. However, in the Japanese version of the game, a glitch can be exploited on ladders that allows the player to basically take over the game's inner workings.

This run first goes to The Great Cave Offensive, since it has the first ladder that can be reached from a clean save. For many more technical details, read the author's submission comments.

Here on TASVideos we have a rich history of movies of the games in the Mortal Kombat series, demonstrating the unique combos and glitches possible in each version. This video of MK3 for the SNES is no exception, as the author Dark Noob swaps between all the different characters to show off the wide variety of techniques, secrets, and humorous bugs that are possible.

Though he is technically the villain, you have to admire Shao Kahn's dedication to keeping up with the action in his role as announcer as the fights get more and more bizarre. At times even he seems confused as to what is going on.

Arguably one of the most well known and well developed SNES hacks in existence, Super Demo World puts Mario into a new realm that spans well beyond his original adventure.

Features of the hack include:

  • the ability to store unconventional items in the reserve box, such as a koopa, springboard, message box, or vine
  • 120 exits in total, including two secret worlds
  • creative and challenging level design, with some puzzle elements thrown in
  • "new" graphics (mostly backgrounds taken from other games, such as Donkey Kong Country 3 and Mega Man X)

In this run, PangaeaPanga improves upon the previous movie by more than five minutes using newly discovered glitches and a slower overworld route, which counterintuitively saves time.

To see a much shorter run completing the minimum number of stages, see this run.

This is a quick completion of Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island.

Here, the author, Masterjun, abuses a glitch that causes Yoshi's tongue to extend infinitely. This confuses the game and causes it to jump to the SNES CPU registers and start executing arbitrary code, which triggers the credits.

There is also a run without game-breaking glitches and a 100% run.

Exploiting this glitch instead of a glitch that results in corruption of the egg list saved 1:19.26 over the previous movie.

Once upon a time, there was a prince named Gallagher. He was entrusted with a magical ring that granted him great powers. But he was too weak to control the power of the ring, and became possessed by it. The mad prince was sealed into a crystal, but many years later managed to break out, planning to wreak havoc on the Dream World and conquer it. Yuko, the heroine of the three previous Valis games, is no longer a sacred Valis warrior - she has become a goddess. Lena, a young girl who wants to become a Valis warrior, must prove to Yuko she is worthy to wield the sword of Valis, that will eventually stop the evil plans of Gallagher.

The Lion King, based on the famous Disney movie, is a platform game where you control Simba - initially as a young cub, and later as an adult lion. The plot of the game follows the plot of the movie. Each of the levels represents a part of the movie.

Watch as Tompa climbs walls, clones hyenas, and sticks his face in lava in order to beat this difficult game in a brisk 13 minutes.

For a TAS of the slightly different Genesis port, look no further than here.

Mario has returned to the Mushroom Kingdom from a trip, only to find that Bowser has started a construction campaign of building new hideouts. The construction projects are depriving the kingdom's plants of sunlight and thus, Mario decides to demolish the projects with his hammer. Along the way, he meets his old enemies from the original Wrecking Crew, including former rival Foreman Spike.

This Japan-only sequel to the original game takes a more competitive approach, giving two opponents their own sides to demolish as many panels as they can. Once one of the sides is completely filled up, the other player wins.

In this run, pirohiko takes advantage of a shortcut that humorously ends a level instantly if three lines of at least three panels of the same color overlap.

Doc Louis's Punch-Out!! is a standalone title released after the Wii remake of Punch-Out!! as a Platinum reward for Club Nintendo members in North America. Taking place before the events of Punch-Out!!, the game sees Little Mac spar with his coach, Doc Louis, through three progressively difficult matches, which are each cleared by knocking him down once.

As with the other Punch-Out!! runs on this site, this run by McHazard aims for in-game time first, then real time. The clock times achieved are listed below:

   Warm-up: 40.52
   Training: 41.83
   Sparring: 39.38
We also have a run of Super Punch-Out!! for the SNES.

The good Mecha Santa plans to spread happiness and cheer all over the world. Princess Pitch, previously a sidekick in the game Garden Gnome Carnage, sets out to put an end to those silly plans.

This time around, Princess Pitch decides to take on Mecha Santa and his army of robot elves on a difficulty harder than the hardest (Reallyjoel's Mom), since it's too easy otherwise. Reallyjoel's Mom is a secret joke difficulty meant to be impossible: it multiplies the spawn and attack rate of all enemies several times over and removes all powerups and ammo refills. Consequently, a player without tool assistance will maybe beat one room - if s/he's lucky.

This TAS gets through with liberal use of the piledriver move, as well as precise movement and shooting.

Psycho Waluigi is a Mario fangame by Thunder Dragon that stars not Mario but Waluigi, perhaps the most underrepresented playable character in the Mario franchise.

After suffering a massive bump to the head, Waluigi wakes up in the unfamiliar land of Unconcia, only to discover that he now has psychic powers! In true villain fashion, he decides to use his new abilities to take over this strange new land, one kingdom at a time. Using the Psycho Iris, he can pick up objects and throw them at enemies or mind control an enemy to shoot at other foes. He can also collect coins and valuable jewels along the way to trade for powerups like a double jump and accessories like a shiny gold crown.

This tool-assisted run by sack_bot features precise jumping and a glitch that allows Waluigi to clip into walls.

Spelunky is a cave exploration / treasure-hunting game inspired by classic platform games and rogue-likes, where the goal is to grab as much treasure from the cave as possible. Every time you play the cave's layout is supposed to be different, but now the Spelunker guy decides to make sure the cave is in his favor by finding everything he needs in no time before zipping his way to the end.

This run aims to reach and defeat the final boss as fast as possible by (ab)using the unpredictable teleporter and a generous supply of bombs.

In VVVVVV, the player controls Captain Viridian, who is lost in an alternate dimension, in search of the missing members of the spaceship's crew. Instead of jumping, the player is able to control the direction of gravity, allowing the captain to flip between the floors and ceilings of the environment. The graphical style of the game is heavily influenced by the Commodore 64.

This movie by Masterjun utilizes a glitch that increments the current game state to trick the game into warping to the end cutscene. The glitch is triggered by pressing the Escape key to bring up the quit prompt while a dialog box is onscreen. Masterjun also improves the previous run by 0.30 seconds by using general optimizations in movement and key-presses.

See the submission comments for more details. There is also a run in which the game is played more as intended.

Instead of jumping, the player is able to control the direction of gravity, allowing Captain Viridian to flip between the floors and ceilings of the environment. The graphical style of the game is heavily influenced by the Commodore 64.

In the spirit of the retro games' secret hunt, 20 aptly named Shiny Trinkets are hidden throughout the game. The author makes sure to collect all of them in his movie.

Additionally, this TAS is completed on the game's no-death mode, which removes all the cutscenes and dialogues, as well as allows collecting a specific Trinket without having to die. Dying once on this mode prompts an instant game over, making it an especially brutal challenge in unassisted conditions. As this naturally prohibits the skips and glitches that abuse forcible deaths, it allows the audience to see the game in its entirety and, indeed, enjoy its level design and excellent chiptune-style soundtrack.

If you would like to see the game completed with no holds barred, make sure to check out the glitched any% and the game end glitch TASes that complete the game a lot quicker than one would have imagined!

In this run, Scepheo blazes to the ending in less than 9 minutes (7:55 according to the in-game timer), skips the fearsome Gravitron, and rescues the crew in a fraction of the length of the ship's regulated lunch break. Scepheo also improves Masterjun's previous run by over 4 and a half minutes through a new route and a new glitch that allows the captain to be flung out of a teleporter into a wall. For more information, see the author's comments.

This run avoids using glitches that require pressing the Escape key. There is also a run that uses these glitches to beat the game even faster.

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.
