You're trapped! Your disabled nuclear submarine, resting perilously on an undersea ledge, has begun taking on water. With time running out for you and your crew – and with your onboard torpedoes shaken loose by an eerie current from deep under the sea floor – it's up to you alone whether you sink or swim!

The objective of Airlock is to retrieve the hatch keys and make your way to the next level before your compartment floods. But at the same time you must avoid the torpedoes that have been shaken loose and which, when they cross your path, rob you of precious time.

Alyosha improves the previous publication by 0.92 seconds, thanks to a newly discovered trick. Please read the author's comments for more details.

Pitfall II: Lost Caverns is a platforming video game originally released for the Atari 2600 in 1984. The sequel to the popular Pitfall!, it opens up the world into a free-roaming adventure instead of progressing on a linear path.

This run is different from the any% TAS in that it does everything necessary to achieve the maximum score. This means avoiding falling down pits (which decreases your score by 100 each time) and following a much longer route in order to obtain all items.

Alyosha improves the previous run by 9.11 seconds, thanks to a new trick and better optimisation. Please read the author's comments for more details.

The streets of Metro City are filled with criminals who are part of a gang called Mad Gear. Former wrestler and newly elected mayor Mike Haggar tries to do something about it, much to the displeasure of the Mad Gear Gang who kidnap his daughter Jessica. Only three people are brave enough to venture into the crime-infested streets and try to bring Jessica back.

Final Fight is a 2D side-scrolling fighting game. Taking on the role of either Cody, Guy, or the mayor Mike Haggar himself, you must advance through six areas of the city clearing out the gang infestation. You will have to cope with a variety of thugs, ranging from firebomb-throwing maniacs to behemoth wrestlers. To defeat these thugs, you have an arsenal of punches, kicks, throws, and jump kicks at your disposal.

£e Nécroyeur improves the previous publication by 1 minute and 11.35 seconds. Please read the author's extensive comments on the tricks and glitches used. As a bonus, this was played on maximum difficulty settings.

Golden Axe is an arcade beat em up from the late 80s. Along with its charming Conan the Barbarian style and hack and slash gameplay, it pioneered the beat em up "super" attack in the form of collectable magic. The game consists of 5 full size stages with 4 bonus stages in between for replenishing magic and HP. Gameplay consists of slicing bad guys up with weapons, riding mounts that breath fire, and casting magic spells.

Galedog slays the enemies throughout the game in record time.

For more hack-and-slaying action, please watch the movie done on the Genesis version.

Osman is a arcade game in the spirit of Strider. It's a very obscure and underrated arcade game, which didn't see much of the light of day, thanks to various issues with the hardware... and the fact that the game is unforgivably hard.

This run by xy2 beats the game with the highest score possible, without relying on checkpoint farming to increase the score further.

Samurai Shodown IV: Amakusa's Revenge (Samurai Spirits: Amakusa's Descent (サムライスピリッツ天草降臨) in Japan) is the fourth installment of SNK's Samurai Shodown series of fighting games. Story-wise, it's the second and final chapter of a story between Samurai Shodown and Samurai Shodown II, with III being the first chapter.

In this playaround-style run, Dark Noob shows off more glitches, combos, and character variety than the preceding run in this category. This makes the movie nearly twice as long, but there should be plenty to enjoy. For some details, see the submission comments.

- Maximum kills
- Genre: Action
You control a shinobi, Joe Musashi, who must battle his way through each level in search of hostages which must be rescued. You have shurikens, kicks and punches to defend yourself with, as well as powerful ninja magic which can clear the screen of enemies in one go.

Each level is broken down into smaller scenes, and hostages are guarded by big blokes who throw swords. Watch out for gun-toting enemy henchmen and ninjas. Reaching the end of each level will find you battling it out with a boss. These range from 8ft tall giants to helicopter gunships.

In this run, V kills all the enemies that appear throughout the game, but doesn't try to respawn any of them to increase the kill count, because that would result in endlessly killing the same enemy.

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.

BrunoVisnadi improves the previous run by 7.70 seconds, thanks to a new trick and faster routes.

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.

Metroid Prime Hunters is the DS spinoff to the "Metroid Prime" trilogy, involving Samus in a race against six other bounty hunters to collect the eight Octoliths and get the "Ultimate Power".
At least, that's what was supposed to happen. Unfortunately for those bounty hunters, Memory is on the case. Thanks to a variety of tricks, out of bounds glitches, and optimization, Samus blazes through various planets in the Tetra Galaxy and collects the eight Octoliths in record time, destroying everything in her path. World's greatest bounty hunter indeed.
For those curious to see how the series originated, we also have a run of the original Metroid.

Award - GBA TAS of 2016Award - Lucky TAS of 2016
Everyone who has at least once attempted to gather a soul from each of the 120 different enemies in Aria of Sorrow, especially during a speedrun, knows the frustration it incurs after a hundredth failed attempt to get the required drop. That just makes this all-souls TAS, played on hard mode, even more impressive.

This is an improvement of 1:38.85 over the previous movie, thanks to a more optimised route and newly used items. Please read the authors' comments for more details.

If you would like to see the game beaten even faster, don't miss the any% run by one of the authors, klmz.


Note: Starting from reset was necessary to use hard mode. However, doing so is normally not allowed — refer to the rules to see the reasons.

This is a really fast TAS through Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance played as Maxim, who is only available after the game is beaten. Unlike in the glitch-warped run, the protagonist doesn't directly fight Dracula and instead defeats every boss, reaching Dracula the intended way. However, this doesn't stop Maxim from making short work of every boss and sinking into walls wherever he wants.

This TAS by gstick improves the prior run by 1:42.59 thanks to further optimizations and an entirely new route.


Note: This movie starts where the main quest movie left off. We don't usually accept movies beginning from a save, though. Please read our rules to see our reasons.

Dragon Ball Z: The Legacy of Goku is an action RPG based on Dragon Ball Z, developed by Webfoot Technologies. It is the first game in The Legacy of Goku trilogy. Together, all three games tell the original story of Dragon Ball Z, more or less.

This run by MUGG uses copious amounts of luck manipulation and flight retention to beat this rather grindy game in a little under 14 minutes.

- Uses death to save time

Mario Party Advance follows a different format than the main games, since only a single person can play without connecting to another GBA. In this game, the player moves around the game board, visiting characters, running quests, and playing minigames. Many of the non-player characters are from classic Nintendo 64 games like Super Mario 64, Mario Party, and Paper Mario.

In order to beat the game as fast as possible, Nacho manipulates luck to achieve favorable rolls. Careful Mushroom management also allows him to intentionally lose some minigames when it would be faster than beating them.

Metroid: Zero Mission is a retelling of the original Metroid's story with a couple of new plot twists and updated gameplay.

This movie improves on the previous attempt by the same author by 28 in-game seconds and 34 seconds of real time. The time saved comes from more optimized movements and a few minor tricks, but mainly from a greater understanding of RNG in the game.

Everyone's favourite gymnastic winner is back, and this time, he's sparing no expense to make sure the evil Vizier's reign of sand-based terror is stopped once and for all. Watch as our hero slaughters the Vizier's entire army, robs him of his precious metal, confiscates his valuable medical resources and steals all his ancient scrolls without even stamping his library card.

In this run, theenglishman achieves a self-defined full completion, which is everything you can acquire or do in the game without the use of a Nintendo GameCube/Game Boy Advance link cable. In the case of this game, it boils down to:

  • Kill all 75 Sand Persians, which makes the Prince reach max stats (Level 30, 150 HP, 115 Attack, 90 Defence)
  • Acquire all available consumables (9 Life Potions, 9 Sands of Time, 5 Antidotes - consumables can be used at any time)
  • Collect Slowdown Ring and Freeze Ring
  • Collect all tutorial Scrolls
  • Reassemble all Medals and lower all the Medal Gates
  • Press the three GameCube switches

Of course, all those little accomplishments mean a lot of high-fives are in order! This rapid high-fiving and switching partners happens to cause a speed glitch that allows jlun2 to skip large parts of rooms.

Sonic Battle is a pseudo-fighting game, akin to Super Smash Bros. from Nintendo. Rather than being 3D side-scrolling, this game employs a 3D isometric view – not a static, sprite-based field though, it is comprised of actual texture-mapped polygons. The character sprites are 2D though, and while you think it wouldn't work – it does.

In the first Harry Potter game for the Game Boy Color, the story of Harry's first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry is told in the form of a traditional role-playing game.

Playing as Harry, one advances through the plot of the book and the movie by fulfilling quests, battling monsters and gaining experience and levels.

Combat is turn-based, with Harry being able to use a variety of spells against various critters and other enemies. In addition, card combinations of Famous Witches and Wizards Collector's Cards can be used to produce powerful magical effects. These cards can be found all over the freely explorable Hogwarts. Potions that refill stamina and magic points can be found, bought or mixed by Harry himself, but only with the right ingredients.

As in other Potter games, Harry also competes for house points for Gryffindor, hoping to win the House Cup in the end.

The game features several mini-games that, once found in the main game, can also be accessed from the main menu.


Note: The original encodes contain footage that deserves an epilepsy warning for it's flickering in the latter part of the run. So we provide a cleaned up version of the run in the alternate encodes.

Scooby-Doo! Classic Creep Capers is a point-and-click adventure game in six chapters. Scooby, Shaggy, Fred, Velma and Daphne are on the trail of a jewel thief. Their investigation leads them to an old spooky house, Jekyll Mansion. Once inside, they search the rooms to gather clues to reveal the identity of the jewel thief. Gameplay consists of positioning characters close to objects in such a way that a menu at the bottom of the screen lights up. The player can then choose the correct action (examine, search, use, take) from the menu. There is also plenty of dialogue involved. To solve puzzles, the player switches between characters and uses each person's special abilities.

Shantae is an obscure Game Boy Color game released over a year after the Game Boy Advance came out. Because of this, it was released in extremely small quantities. It is notable for its impressive animation and scope.

In this run, arandomgameTASer goes for 100% completion, which includes getting all upgrades, all magic dances and at least one of each usable item. The run also collects the Tinkerbat form which is only accessible if the game is played on a Game Boy Advance.

Additionally, this run is over 20 minutes faster then the previous run, thanks to a plethora of new glitches, tricks, and route optimizations. More information is provided in the author's comments

We also have a run that just completes the game as quickly as possible.

Bubble Ghost, a game ported to many platforms, has the player, as a ghost, guide a bubble through a house by blowing at it; if the bubble hits anything at all it pops and the player loses a life. If that sounds difficult, well, it is - but that doesn't stop this run from making it look easy.

This movie appears to be slower than the previous publication; however, this is due to more accurate emulation. It is in fact faster by around 25.3 seconds than the previous publication, thanks to a new trick and better optimisation in many places. Please read the author's comments for more details.

Jurassic Park Part 2: The Chaos Continues is a video game and a non-canonical continuation of the Jurassic Park series, developed and published by Ocean Software for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) and Game Boy. The Game Boy version shown here follows a completely different storyline than its SNES counterpart.

In it, the player controls Grant, whose vehicle at Jurassic Park has stopped functioning as the result of an intentional power outage. Grant moves through a rain forest and later takes a raft down a river, where he encounters aquatic reptiles. Grant ultimately reaches Jurassic Park's headquarters, where most of the power remains off.

Hetfield90 and StarvinStruthers run and shoot through the game in record time.

Mega Man III, known as Rockman World 3 (ロックマンワールド3) in Japan, is the third Mega Man game for Game Boy, released in December 1992. The game continues the quest of the protagonist, Mega Man, in a never-ending struggle with his long-time nemesis, Dr. Wily. As with previous Game Boy releases, the game incorporates gameplay elements and bosses from two sequential Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) games: Mega Man 3 and Mega Man 4.

For those of you who enjoy listening to the music, the background music in this one is quite good, and the sound quality is much better than previous Mega Man games for the system.

This is an improvement to the predecessor movie by 265 frames, which translates to 225 frames if you only count actual gameplay. This is the result of difference in loading times between VBA and BizHawk.

Pokémon: Blue and Red Version are part of the first generation of the Pokémon franchise. They were developed by Game Freak and published by Nintendo in North America in 1998. They feature a 10-year old boy who ventures around the Kanto region and aim to become the Pokémon champion. During his journey, he encounters various monsters, which he can catch to use for battles, or just to fill up his Pokédex.

In this run, MrWint fills the Pokédex without resorting to any glitches and obtains the diploma in both games in less than four hours. Note that Mew isn't caught here; this is because it can only be obtained through either an event or glitches.


The official encodes feature commentary by the author as soft subtitles. In addition, the downloadable encodes feature additional audio tracks: The first (default) track features audio from both games, while the second and third tracks feature audio from Blue and Red, respectively.

There's also an alternate encode provided by the author which features a detailed overlay.

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

While this run appears to be slower than the previously published movie due to more accurate emulation, it is in fact faster by 0.36 seconds if emulation differences are not accounted for.

We're Back! - A Dinosaur's Story was developed by Beam Software Pty., Ltd. and released in 1993. Interestingly, the same game was released in various forms, with four editions released in separate regions: We're Back in the USA, Baby T-Rex in Europe, Agro Saur in Australia, and Bamse in Sweden. The other versions are almost identical except for the graphics; likely they were rushed out to capitalize on popular licenses in different regions.

In this particular version adapted from an animated movie by Steven Spielberg, the player controls Rex (not related to Radical Rex) who must save his three dinosaur friends, Woog, Dweeb and Elsa, from Prof. Screweyes. It's up to Rex to storm the professor's castle and save his imprisoned friends.

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.

Pac-Man World 2 is a 3D platformer for the Nintendo Gamecube. Pac-Man has 2 unique movement options: butt-bouncing (ground pound) and rev-rolling (spindash). The goal is simple, just make it to the end of each stage, and kill each boss at the end of the world.

The TAS differs from RTA runs in that minute details in the level geometry are abused using the rev-roll. This allows many strategies to be shown off that aren't viable otherwise.

Note: Due to an emulator bug the intro and outro videos look jittery.

SoulCalibur II continues the tradition set by Soul Blade on the PlayStation and SoulCalibur on the Dreamcast with intense action and plenty of weapons to deal the massive blows. Each console version of the game also includes a unique character for the platform; in the GameCube version, it's Link from The Legend of Zelda.

N?K improves his previous run by nearly a minute, thanks to setting the amount of rounds per match to 1 and overall better luck manipulation.


Note: In order for this run to sync, the free DSP files included with Dolphin must be used. Playing back the run using DSP files dumped from a real GameCube will result in a desync.

Note 2: Due to minor emulation issues, some fade transitions are completely missing, notably the transitions between matches in Arcade mode.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 is the third game of the Tony Hawk series. This one introduced the revert and double tap tricks, which allowed for much longer and higher scoring combos. There are 8 main levels in the game along with a secret level unlocked after completing the final competition. Six of the levels have goals scattered across the level, with the remaining three being competitions.

In this run, Fog skates, grinds, and flies through the air across all story mode levels to complete all goals in the game as well as getting gold medals in all of the competitions as fast as possible.

We also have an "any%" run of the game if you just want to see the game completed as fast as possible.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3 is the third game of the Tony Hawk series. This one introduced the revert and double tap tricks, which allowed for much longer and higher scoring combos. There are 8 main levels in the game, five of which have goals scattered across the level, and three competitions.

In this run, Fog skates, grinds, and flies through the air across multiple levels to complete the game as fast as possible.

We also have an "all goals and golds" run if you want to see all the goals completed as fast as possible.

- Starts from a saved state or SRAM
- Genre: Sport
Tony Hawk's Underground 2 is the sixth installment in Neversoft's Tony Hawk's series and is the sequel to Underground. The gameplay in Underground 2 is similar to that of previous Tony Hawk games: the player skates around in a 3D environment modeled after various cities and attempts to complete various goals. Most goals involve skating on or over various objects or performing combos. Scores are calculated by adding the sum of the point value of each trick strung together in a combo and then multiplying by the number of tricks in the combo.

In this run, The Packle plays through the Classic game mode, which brings back older THPS styled objectives into the current set of levels (including remade levels of older THPS games), using the easiest difficulty.

The game is based on the popular French comics series Astérix. It is 50 B.C., and the entire Gaul (today's France) is conquered by the Romans. Only one village still remains independent, thanks to the incredible powers of its two great warriors, Asterix and Obelix. In the game, they must first of all liberate the village Orvio and rescue their friend Dogmatix.

The player can play as either Asterix or Obelix. They make their way through platform levels, fighting enemies by punching them, and jumping to access higher ares or to avoid falling down. There are also some items that the player can collect, such as bombs, with which the player can overcome obstacles and advance in the game.

- 100% completion

- Heavy glitch abuse
- Genre: Action
- Genre: Platform
Chakan: The Forever Man is a fairly standard platform game in which you control a dead guy (Chakan has lost his soul) through many levels of hack and slash platforming. The ultimate goal is defeat all the bad-guys and so finally achieve inner-peace.

The story-line (if you can call it that) does give this game an interesting image and it is much darker than most other titles available on the Genesis.

This is a full completion run, which, compared to the any% branch, beats some additional levels and collects all items.

NOTE: Don't be fooled by the fake credits after the final level. The game is not quite over yet.

In this game, you get to play as Pinocchio, the carpenter Geppetto's living wooden puppet. Pinocchio goes through scenes from Disney's animated film, which itself was based on a children's novel.

This run does plenty of hopping around in order for Pinocchio to attempt to save his father in a brisk 16:24 minutes.

This run is longer than the one it obsoletes due to using the hardest difficulty, which leads to having to beat additional levels.

Award - Sega TAS of 2016
Gunstar Heroes (1993) is widely considered to be one of the best action games on the Sega Genesis, but, ironically, was commercially unsuccessful due to poor promotion. It features a variety of melee attacks, as well as 4 basic weapons which can be combined in pairs (making a total of 14 combinations) — all densely packed in a swift and explosion-heavy gameplay spanning over seven uniquely designed stages. The author takes special care to showcase all the moves the game is capable of, using every possible attack and having lots of fun playing around in autoscrolling sections.

This movie is a little under 4 and a half minutes faster than the previous one due to more aggressive boss fights and a new movement technique. See the author's comments for more details.

The encodes for this movie are also slightly larger than usual — this is due to an amount of colors and on-screen motion even the best codecs have problems coping with.

Based on the comic strip Making It, Normy's Beach Babe-o-Rama was released in 1994 by Electronic Arts. The plot is that Normy's hanging out with some beach babes when suddenly an evil alien ship beams them aboard! Normy recieves a note that he's the only one that can save them and so he uses some magic suntan lotion to travel through time to rescue them.

RobynS abuses Normy's dash to make quick work of the game's six levels, with the occasional glitch thrown in for good measure.

The Legend of Galahad is a side-scrolling adventure/platformer for the Sega Genesis. The game is a port of Leander for the Amiga, which was the first game developed by Travellers Tales. You play as Galahad on his quest to stop the Wicked Wiz of the East who has made off with Princess Leandra. Galahad must explore 21 levels in 3 different worlds in search of a hidden key in each level to progress, collecting coins to buy rune bombs, armor, and sword upgrades along the way.

The8bitbeast rushes through this game quickly, especially once the Tempest Blade upgrade is obtained. It is carefully managed to provide well-timed speedups in the player's movement, and it also leads to some zipping glitches. For more details, see the run's comments.

Drawing from the cartoon's backstory, players fight rival pirates as well as fantastic creatures sent to hinder the heroes from finding the Treasure of Rule by the evil pirate-lord Bloth.

The game features the main crew of the 1990s TV show - Ren, Ioz, and Tula - searching for the Treasures of Rule in order to rid the world of Mer of the Dark Water and return Mer and Ren's homeland, Octopon, to its former glory.

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

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

This movie improves the previous run by 16.39 seconds.

Banjo-Kazooie stars the bear-bird team of Banjo and Kazooie, who are searching for Jiggies, or Jigsaw puzzle pieces, to unlock doors and save Banjo's sister from a rhyming witch. Even though Banjo's name is first, Kazooie ends up doing most of the heavy lifting as new skills are developed.

In this run, Hyperresonance collects all 100 Jiggies hidden throughout the game.

This is an improvement of 24:40.71 over the previous movie. This was possible with overwhelming route changes (and much better route planning ahead), a myriad of new glitches and tricks, and much more optimized movement. This movie loses some time to loading zones on BizHawk vs Mupen (about 2 minutes), so the final time is not quite indicative of how good the run is. With console like loading zones, this would be a 1:57.

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

F-Zero X is the 3D sequel to the popular SNES hovercraft racing title. It offers a wide array of cars, tracks and play options, and has had an active speed-running community since its release in 1998.

This TAS completes the 6 tracks of the Jack Cup in time trial mode, where you choose any track to drive solo aiming for fastest possible completion of 3 laps according to the in-game timer, accurate to the millisecond. A special input sequence is used to unlock all cars (you normally unlock cars by playing in grand prix mode).

This TAS saves 1'10"614 (in-game track totals) over the previous Jack Cup TAS by Lord Tom. For a per-track comparison, check the author's comments.

This run employs various ways to win encounters in a single round by gaining more points than the enemy. As speed is the goal, the opponent is usually taken down before getting the chance to score points. Since all characters are identical in terms of speed, Saeki is used as he is the default character.

Award - First edition TAS of 2016Award - N64 TAS of 2016Award - TAS of 2016
Mario Kart 64 is the first 3D game in the Mario Kart series, released in 1996 by Nintendo. Widely regarded as classic, it still retains a following to this day.

A run 7 years in the making, this Mario Kart 64 TAS features weatherton completing all 4 Grand Prix Cups in under 21 minutes. Due to the nature of the game, knowledge of the internal code allows for heavy RNG manipulation, getting even the most unlikely items on the first try. This and the incredible movement precision are used to create crazy shortcuts, often completing laps in mere seconds.

The submission text contains highly detailed information about the strategies of every track, the RNG manipulation and a lot of other information about the run.


You can watch the complete run being played back on a console.

At AGDQ 2014, the Mushroom Cup of this run was presented on console, and at AGDQ 2016, the Star Cup was presented.

In Space Station Silicon Valley you play as Evo, a robot who has been sent to investigate a mysterious space station. Along the way, Evo loses his robot body and must inhabit the corpses of dead robot animals to survive. As you carry through the game you secure the space station and rebuild Evo's body.

The game features a variety of animals with unique abilities that must be used correctly to complete objectives within each level. Because no two animals are the same, many skips and glitches are only useful in one or two stages, so expect to see a wide variety of gameplay.

Spider-Man is the first 3D game to star the popular web-slinger. It is loosely based on Spider-Man: The Animated Series and Spider-Man Unlimited and features some of the voice cast from each and similar character designs.

Peter Parker is attending a demonstration of the reformed Dr. Otto Octavius's new invention when an imposter Spider-Man steals the device. Spider-Man must work to clear his name and uncover the sinister motives behind the device's theft.

Using various techniques, most prominently out of bound clips, arandomgameTASer swings his webs and beats the game in record time.

Additionally, this run is an improvement over arandomgameTASer's previous attempt at this game, and is 2:18.41 shorter due to more optimization and the use of a new glitch.

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. Then there were no stars, but 2 keys, because the door leading to the castle basement demanded it. Now there is 1 key 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 2457 frames faster than the previous movie due to the recently discovered and long sought after 'Moat Skip', new strategies and extreme optimizations made possible by parallel universes 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.

ウッチャンナンチャンの炎のチャレンジャー 電流イライラ棒 (Ucchannanchan's Passionate Challenger: Irritating Electric Rod) is a faithful recreation of the mechanical wire loop game popular in Japan, in which the player must guide an electrified rod through a path of parallel metal wires as fast as he or she can without touching the wires.

This adaptation is viewed from the perspective of the end of the metal rod. There are six courses consisting of narrow pathways with curves and obstacles. Later courses introduce moving obstacles and sections where the screen slightly tilts. Just like the real game, touching the wires results in instant loss and the gameplay is commentated by an enthusiastic announcer.

This run by TASeditor improves the previous run by 0.65 second with better optimization. He also adds in some entertainment and close calls with the wires, much to the shock of the in-game announcer.

Battle Kid 2: Mountain of Torment is the sequel to Battle Kid: Fortress of Peril and was released in 2012. Inspired from I Wanna Be The Guy and other classic platformers, this game follows the same format of having a large map in Metroidvania style where one has a large map to freely explore and must venture to various parts of it. You always die in one hit (3 hits for easy difficulty), but there are unlimited lives and a password system that allows you to continue where you left off. In total, there are over 650 rooms, 25 enemy types, 13 boss battles, 42 music tracks, and more bonus features this time around.

This time around, Timmy ventures through a mountain base (hence the subtitle "Mountain of Torment") to thwart the villains' plans once more.

fcxiaopengyou collects every item in the game and kills all the bosses on Unfair, the hardest difficulty, in record time.

Battletoads (1991) is a futuristic beat 'em up game known for its extreme difficulty spread over 12 difficult levels. The mechanics in the game also change drastically from level to level, making the game one of the hardest and most varied for the NES.

In this game, the second most diabolical evil genius in the universe, The Dark Queen, has kidnapped Princess Angelica and Pimple - a battletoad. Rash and Zitz must save them by traveling through the most insane multilevel set of plans ever designed. This includes falling down huge shafts, racing through obstacle courses at breakneck speeds, riding on snakes through a massive maze of spikes, passing through a killer ventilation system, navigating through a missile defense system, climbing a never ending revolving tower, and much much more. Along the way, the Battletoads must also face off against an evil army of robots, genetically engineered rodents, and The Dark Queen herself.

In this run, feos, Alyosha, and Samsara improved upon the previous publication by 2:39.33 using many new tricks and glitches.

Bible Buffet: a turn-based board game with action stages and bible quizzes. In it, you spin a spinner and move the number of spaces it says.

When you land on your spot, if it is just a regular spot, you play an action game for points, weapons, hearts, etc. If it has a red circle, you spin again. If the space you land on has a red circle connected to another red circle by dashes, you move forward or backwards to the second circle. If the space has a red circle with a question mark in it, you take a pop quiz of three trivia questions then get to select either a key, a heart or move ahead one, two, three or four spaces.

When you spin, if you get the book instead of a number, you get a pop quiz of three questions. If you get the happy face, something good happens like move ahead ten spaces, get a key, get a heart, etc. If you get the sad face, something bad happens like lose your turn, move back 1 space and lose your turn, and so on.

Invariel and Spikestuff reach the end of the board in record time.

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).

Unlike the other branches of Castlevania III, this run uses a stairs glitch in Block 4 to climb directly to Dracula and skip most of the game. Only the USA version allows this glitch to work, so it was used instead of the Japanese version, which has superior sound quality.

In Cosmo Police: Galivan, the player takes the role of the last remaining member of the Cosmo Police. His comrades died while trying to free the planet Cynep from the evil roaming on it. Now the player is the last hope.

This game is a mix between a shooter and a platformer: the player walks through the caves, jumps over obstacles and shoots everything in sight. Well, at least if he has a weapon: at the beginning he is unarmed and can only kick or punch. He has to find pyramids which were dropped by his dead colleagues (also sometimes from killed aliens), which grant an armor piece, more life energy and a weapon. When the player finds a pyramid, the weapon gets upgraded for a limited amount of time.

However, biggyboy & usedpizza exploit a glitch performed in the "alien world" portion of the first stage, during the transition of the first elevator (read the submission comments as well as this post for more details). Therefore, they reach a time of just 3 minutes and 3 seconds, being 944 frames faster than AmaizumiUni in the previous run.

Cross Fire is a 2D Platformer game, developed and published by Kyugo Boueki, which was released in Japan in 1990. It has gameplay somewhat reminiscent of the Contra series, as you control Eric the soldier on his quest to fight evil all over the world.

The player begins armed with grenades and their trusty fists, but soon receives a sub-machine gun to help mow down their enemies. In this run however, MESHUGGAH and RobynS ignore its intended purpose and instead uses the machine gun to hover, pass through walls, and even skip boss fights entirely. Assisted by the world's most determined helicopter pilot, the game is completed in just under 6 minutes.

This run is 3 frames faster than the predecessor movie by MESHUGGAH.

The Little Mermaid is a simple game based on the movie of the same name. You control the mermaid Ariel as she swims through several stages and beats up bosses by tossing fish encapsulated in bubbles.

Normally, shooting bubbles stops Ariel, so a speedrun would try to avoid all the enemies. However, the author manages to fire shots with little movement delay thanks to a glitch involving turning around. Luck manipulation is also used to beat the bosses quite quickly. For more details, see the submission comments.

In this run, McBobX, improves upon the previous version by 7 seconds.

One day at an amusement park an evil being kidnaps a girl. Her friend hurries to the rescue.

Doki! Doki! Yuuenchi (which means "Thump! Thump! Amusement Park") is a typical platform game featuring a boy who kicks a ball at the enemies (in the original Japanese version). When damaged the boy changes the color of his shirt and the power of his weapon increases. Among the stuff that remains from the fallen enemies he can collect a bird that will chase and defeat foes.

For the European market, the sprite of the main character was redrawn to depict a popular troll character under license from Russ Berrie & Co, and the game was renamed to The Trolls in Crazyland.

The Lee brothers set out on a rescue mission to crush the Black Warriors and save Marian.

Released on many systems, this game was so popular that they even released it for cellular phones and made a board game. Even a Hollywood movie has been made.

Alyosha improves the previous publication by 7.19 seconds, thanks to a completely different experience route in order to get the elbow attack earlier in Mission 4.

The last in the original Dragon Warrior storyline, this one follows "the Hero", who is tasked with saving the world from the archfiend Baramos. After cobbling together a group of people to take with him, the Hero must travel the world to find a way to Baramos's lair.

Or at least, that was what was supposed to happen. Thanks to a glitch involving a party of dead characters, vaxherd manages to manipulate his inventory and warp list to not only have extremely rare pieces of equipment from nothing, but also warps directly to where Baramos is located in a fraction of the time it would take normally.

In addition to this, vaxherd also uses a glitch involving resets and character names to manipulate the RNG and encounter formula at certain points, thereby beating the previous run by over seven minutes.

A rather simple, unique classic game.

The hero of this game is a spy/agent who raids buildings infested with men in black. He collects important documents from various apartments/closets (which, for the sake of simplicity, are colored indicatively), and then leaves by his car to the next raid.

After raiding the last building, he goes to raid the same buildings once again, ad infinitum.

Even a small game like this isn't free of bugs. The unsafe elevators of this game offer a few maneuvers that should not be attempted in real life.

Four levels were played.

Alyosha improves the previous publication by 10.13 seconds, thanks to better optimisation.

The game features an inventory and equipment and a spells system, all of which were rare to see in NES games when this game came out.

This is the 4th published version of the TAS, now 16.73 seconds faster than the previous version.

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

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

This venture between Aglar, Hotarubi and Samsara improves the previous movie by 46.95 seconds thanks to a new zipping glitch that skips most of Stage 5 and a new clip that skips most of Stage 6. This run doesn't collect the special items required to access the 7th level, and thus gets a bad ending. However, we have another run that attains the best ending for your viewing pleasure!

This run has been console verified using micro500's TASLink replay device (3.5 ms timing window).

A boy named Satoshi suffers from a unique type of color blindness — he can only see in black and white. However, he also has a special ability to turn solid objects intangible and vice versa! But despite the amazing power he holds, Satoshi only wants to see like a normal boy. He seeks out an answer to his vision problem in a mystical manor called the Denine Devil Mansion, where he meets a scientist who offers him a game. If Satoshi wins, he might gain the ability to see in color. With that goal in mind, Satoshi accepts the offer and begins the Inversion game.

In each level, Satoshi must collect all of the keys to open the door to the next map. He can use his special ability to change the solidity of all objects in the level and reveal solutions to the game's many puzzles. Springs, moving platforms, vertical conveyor belts and levers can also be used to his advantage.

In this run, MESHUGGAH & jhztfs use a few tricks and a lot of precise movement to help Satoshi beat the game in record time. This run is 5.94 seconds faster than the previous version by MESHUGGAH.

Kirby's Adventure is a colorful game that's very long for a NES game. Normal gameplay forbids the UFO from being taken from level to level, but using a bug discovered by kirbymuncher, TASeditor manages to keep the UFO, and blazes through much of the game using it. The speed with which he defeats midbosses and bosses is often very surprising.

This new TAS of Kirby's Adventure is an improvement of 2:19.65 over JXQ's run.

To see the game completed even faster, see this run, which uses an unusual glitch involving the Stone ability and water to activate the credits early.

Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger is an action platform game based on Japanese TV show of the same name which later inspired US TV series Power Rangers. As in the show, the villain witch Bandora is plotting an evil scheme and zyurangers set out to stop her. The game consists of five stages each ending with a boss fight. Each stage is assigned to one of five zyurangers. The ranger starts with a blaster, but by entering a door halfway through the stage he gets his respective legendary weapon. Legendary weapons are stronger than the blaster, but in most cases have limited attack range. If the player collects ten coins scattered in the stage, a picture of zyuranger's respective mecha is shown and the ranger's health is fully replenished. Between the stages the player is challenged to one of three possible minigames: a simple quiz, a pong-like game or a bomb toss game. These minigames can be selected and played from the main menu, with the latter two available for two-player mode. The game has a password feature.

Lee Trevino's Fighting Golf is a one to four-player NES/arcade game released by SNK in 1988. Gameplay is relatively simplistic, but was on par with video games of the period. The player has to avoid sand traps, water hazards, rough ground and trees. The courses range from relatively straightforward fairways to elaborate arrangements of sand traps. Despite the title, no fighting is involved in the game.

The player can choose between four different golfers, of which each character has his or her own advantages and disadvantages. Lee Trevino is playable as a character named Super Mex (an actual nickname of his); other characters include Pretty Amy, Miracle Chosuke and Big Jumbo. Despite having the worst control, Big Jumbo is used here for his specialty with ranged hits.

In this run, Acmlm uses precise hits and luck manipulation to beat all 18 holes as fast as possible, which results in a very low final score as well.

Lupin Sansei: Pandora no Isan (ルパン三世 パンドラの遺産) is an action game, developed by TOSE and published by Namco, which was released in Japan in 1987. It is based on an animation called "Lupin Sansei" that is well-known in Japan. The main character of the series is a well-meaning thief named Arsene Lupin III, based on a comic by Maurice Leblanc in the early 1900s.

Lupin's friend Clarisse was kidnapped, and Lupin Sansei (ルパン三世) decided to rescue her. His companions Daisuke Jigen (次元 大介) and Goemon Ishikawa XIII (十三代目 石川 五ェ門) both wanted to help him. So they went to the villa, Chinatown, dock warehouse and pyramid to beat patron saints. Along the way, they dodge some enemies and solve some puzzles.

TASVideos has two other runs from other games starring Lupin III: Legend of the Gold of Babylon and Castle of Cagliostro.

Metal Gear!? It can't be!

This is the NES port of the first entry in the ever-popular Metal Gear series, created by Hideo Kojima and developed and published by Konami; there are significant differences between it and the original MSX version. It is infamous for its engrish, containing such ever-popular phrases as "I FEEL ASLEEP!" and "UH - OH! THE TRUCK HAVE STARTED TO MOVE!".

This run utilizes quite a wide variety of game glitches and collects the minimal set of items needed to complete the game. Additionally, this movie improves the previous movie by 1.68 seconds, thanks to using a new trick called "boss lock" during the fight against Big Boss.

Mini Putt is a miniature golf game originally developed for home computers in 1987. It was later ported to the Famicom.

This run by TaoTao doesn't putter along. It blazes through every hole in a very "mini" amount of time at just under 7 minutes.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Action
Mission: Impossible is a game based on the 1988 TV series of the same name. Your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to rescue Dr. O and Shannon from the grubby clutches of the Sinister Seven as quickly as possible. As you fight your way through each area, you must obtain information and vital ID cards. Your progress is blocked at every turn by acid flames, raw sewage, scorching steam, high voltage electricity and poison gas.

You can choose between three agents, Max, Grant and Nicholas, according to the situation at hand. Each is equipped with two types of weapons which can be interchanged according to the surroundings.

Zakem66 improves the previous TAS by 37.07 seconds, thanks to new tricks and better optimisation in many places. Read the author's comments for more details.

North & South is a humorous, cartoony kind of game about an incredibly bloody war. In it, you move army units around on a board until you approach your opponent, at which point a battle occurs.

- Genre: Puzzle
Palamedes II can be described as "its predecessor, turned upside down". As before, your goal is to rearrange a set of dice and put them in a row for elimination. Only series of dice such as 4-4-4-4-4 or 1-2-3-4-5 can be eliminated, and depending on the series, this will result in one or several rows of dice to be eliminated from the screen. Unlike the original Palamedes, this time your character stands on top of the dice, and the growing pile of dice will crush him unless he makes the correct combinations to eliminate the pile. It's a bit like Tetris, and a bit like Klax.

Two modes are available. Mode 1, that this run uses, puts your player on top of a growing pile which must be eliminated.

Pipe Dream is a game about keeping unsolidified jello in tubes long enough for it to solidify. More or less.

In this movie, RobynS places pipes faster than a plumber on fifteen cups of coffee and only goes as far as absolutely required to contain the goo.

Unfortunately, the annoying music played though most of the game is the "turbo mode" music, and since turbo mode makes the goo flow faster, it can't be ignored in a run that aims for fastest time. It's a good idea to just turn off sound while watching this movie.

This movie stops after playing though all stages once. After that, the set of stages repeats endlessly, not unlike Elevator Action and Circus Charlie.

This run improves upon the previous publication by 40.96 seconds by using a new trick which enables the flooz to start flowing much quicker than normal.

Pwn Adventure Z is a Zelda-like game featuring zombies, originally created for a "capture the flag" hacking competition. As such, it contains various intentional glitches and intentionally unfixed glitches that can be exploited for a fast completion.

This movie ignores all the intended glitches in favor of using save corruption to go out of bounds and defeat a duplicate copy of the final boss, thus skipping basically all the intended and intentionally-glitched gameplay of the game.

Quarth might be best described as a mix of a shooter and Tetris. You control a ship that moves along the bottom, and shoot tiles at incoming groups of blocks to give them a rectangular shape and make them disappear. Each level scrolls at an increasing speed until you reach the end, and you lose if a block reaches the line floating above the ship.

Alyosha improves the previous run by 4.79 seconds with better optimization.

Whoever said cats can't fly needs to watch this movie. Rockin' Kats is a nice platformer with tricky gameplay similar to Bionic Commando and Ninja Five-O.
This little movie represents the hardest part of the game – Channel X, which normally appears as a secret bonus stage after the normal ending. This TAS however does not play through the entire game, but inputs a password in the beginning to access Channel X right away.

This movie improves the previous run by 0.55 seconds with tighter movement optimization and lag reduction.

If you liked this movie, be sure to also check out the movie that beats the actual game.

In the year 2029, evil Emperor Garuda somehow establishes a dictatorial government in the United States. After many lives are lost, two ninjas attempt to overthrow him.

Shadow of the Ninja is one of the rare games in which constantly jumping and slashing is faster than regular running. The author makes sure to use this move extensively both to travel and to deal damage to enemies, and so it may seem that the ninja has a severe case of ADHD.

This game was released in Europe as Blue Shadow and in Japan as Kage.

TASeditor improves the previous run by 17.91 seconds, thanks to new tricks and better optimisation in many places.

This movie is 27.06 seconds faster than the previous run due to a new trick that allows the final boss to be completely skipped in a blaze of glitchy glory. For more information, please read the submission comments.

We also have a run that uses two players, but forgoes the final level glitch.

Super Mario Bros 3 is a very famous and popular 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.

Lord Tom goes the same route as the game end glitch run. However, he achieves total control of the game, pushing the run to a whole new level. He gives himself new powers, like the speed booster and the suit-swap, to name a few. Read the author's comments for more details.

This run was shown at Awesome Games Done Quick 2016 during the TAS block:
