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

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

This run is 0.41 seconds faster than the predecessor movie by negative seven.

Donkey Kong Junior is a 1982 arcade-style platform video game originally created by Nintendo, and ported to the Atari 2600 by Coleco. It's a sequel to the popular original Donkey Kong arcade game, with the player this time controlling Junior, Donkey Kong's son, instead of Mario (who is now the villain of the game).

In this run, Fortranm climbs his way through the three main screens of the game as fast as possible.

E.T. The Extraterrestial, based on the film of the same name, is one of the worst video games ever released. It contributed to Atari's massive financial losses during 1983 and 1984. As a result of overproduction and returns, millions of unsold cartridges were buried in an Alamogordo, New Mexico landfill.

The game was developed in five weeks and Atari decided to skip audience testing for the product due to time limitations.

CoolKirby and Alyosha shave off 0.03 seconds (2 frames) by turning around at the third phone part.

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.

In this run, the author plays through the first five levels of the game, 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.


This obsoletes the previous run by 4.73 seconds.

Drag Race is an arcade game released in 1977 by Kee Games (a subsidiary of Atari). Drag Race was designed by David Crane before the Great Exodus from Atari that would lead to the formation of Activision. At Activision, David Crane would redesign Drag Race for the Atari 2600, released in 1980 as the more widely-known Dragster. This unauthorized adaptation, among other litigation between Atari and Activision, would not be resolved until years later. The cabinet for Drag Race features controls for 2 players, including a steering wheel, a 4-way gear shifter, and a gas pedal. The cabinet even has functional analog tachometers to indicate when to shift! The display is black and white with overlays for color and text. Interestingly, the sound is in stereo, with each player hearing only the sound of their respective dragster in their speaker. The game's mechanics are inventive and gameplay is fun and exciting--as it would later be for Dragster.

Jail Break is an arcade game produced and released by Konami in 1986. The game's story is loosely based on the 1981 film Escape from New York, wherein Manhattan has become an island prison from which the hero must rescue the President of the United States, who is being held hostage. In Jail Break, the game's hero, Aki, must fight through 5 stages to rescue the warden of a prison following a mass escape.

This game is quite advanced for it's time. It offers good multi-sprite movement and decent frustrating artificial intelligence. It also has a host of semi-understandable speech phrases such as "Help me!", "Save the hostages.", "The warden has been taken hostage."

But whatever, none of that matters after what £e Nécroyeur has done to the game with some intense glitching. Bizarre sprite mess just blazes around and terminates the poor prisoners who happened to meet what was left from the hero. Climbing sheer walls, moonwalk shooting, killing aligned groups of enemies with a single bullet - no hostage shall be afraid anymore!

Jungle Hunt is an arcade game produced and released by Taito in 1982. The original version of the game, Jungle King, was the subject of a lawsuit levied against Taito by the estate of Edgar Rice Burroughs for copyright infringement for using a likeness of the Tarzan character. Jungle King featured a long-haired feral man in a fur loincloth swinging from vine to vine in the jungle, and most damning of all, an unauthorized reproduction of actor Johnny Weissmuller's famous Tarzan yell. As a result, the hero of the game was replaced with a stereotypical Victorian era "gentleman explorer", the vines were changed to ropes, and the Tarzan yell was replaced with a short tune. On a technical note, Jungle Hunt is one of the first games to feature parallax scrolling. And the music has a rousing jungle beat! Jungle Hunt was later adapted for the various home gaming platforms of the day, including the Commodore 64 (of which we have a TAS of) and the Atari 2600.

Karate Champ is an arcade game released by Data East in 1984. The game was developed for Data East by Technōs Japan. Even in this early example, Technōs Japan's penchant and talent for designing "fighting" games is readily apparent. While it was not the first fighting game (not even for Technōs Japan), it was the first to offer such a high degree of realism and sophistication, so much so that it has been identified as the defining game of the one-on-one fighting genre. The game also features an early example of digitized speech. The control scheme is atypical, featuring 2 4-way joysticks and no buttons.

Karate Champ: Player Vs Player is an arcade game developed by Technōs Japan and published by Data East in 1984. This is the groundbreaking sequel to Karate Champ. As Karate Champ was the defining game of the one-on-one fighting genre, Karate Champ: Player Vs Player was surely the defining game of the one-on-one player vs. player fighting genre, which would become the preeminent genre for competitive video gaming in the early to mid-1990s. Even now, players continue to compete in older games of this genre, and new games continue to be developed. Karate Champ: Player Vs Player was released less than two months after the release of Karate Champ, but gameplay aside, the game received a fairly thorough overhaul. The game features a new story, new and varied backgrounds, new and enhanced Bonus Intervals, much improved sound samples and opponent AI, and even an ending!

Kung-Fu Master is an arcade game produced and released by Irem in 1984. It is perhaps more widely known by its NES title, Kung Fu. Kung-Fu Master is the seminal game of the "beat 'em up" genre, and it would influence the arcade game industry for years to come. It was a great success for Irem, not just for the arcade market, but also later for the home video game market, as it (as well as Irem's 10-Yard Fight) was chosen as one of the launch titles for the NES. Kung-Fu Master is based on Bruce Lee's final film, Game of Death, wherein the hero must ascend a pagoda at his increasing peril, with each floor guarded by a master of a different martial art.

Award - Arcade TAS of 2017
In this entry of the popular Metal Slug series, the evil would-be dictator General Morden launches another attempt to take over the world - or so it seems on the surface; this game proves that Morden is no Dr Wily by having the true villains turn out to be something else entirely.

Several of this game's stages branch; this run takes the shortest possible route through the game.

This run is faster than the predecessor movie by 2:41.75 minutes. Improvements come from using new strategies, using new tricks/glitches, and optimizing everything better.

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 unforgivingly hard. The game never once lets you breathe, and in unassisted play, there are a lot of things to manage at the same time. This, along with the 3 health you start out with, can make clearing with just a single credit a nightmare.

The game mostly revolves along Osman and his power: he has the power to make clones of himself when he attacks that stay for a varying amount of time and reproduce the attack he just did.

This run is an improvement of 21.95 seconds over the previous one by the same author. Note that the real time of this run is 5:25.2 - The extra 1:11.57 is because the author puts his initials in the high score table after the credits roll.

Punch-Out!! is an arcade game by Nintendo, released in 1983. Back in those carefree days, while Mike Tyson was still a promising amateur, Nintendo was developing a most particular sort of boxing video game. Punch-Out!! features two monitors, digitized speech, and an early (if not the first) example of hardware-scaled sprites.

£e Nécroyeur defeats the six opponents in record time.

This is the first Arcade publication using MAME-RR, and is published right on the 20th anniversary of the original MAME.

Jungle Hunt is a right-to-left side-scrolling arcade game produced and released by Taito in 1982. Jungle Hunt is one of the first video games to use parallax scrolling. The player controls an unnamed explorer, sporting a pith helmet and safari suit, attempting to rescue his girl from a tribe of cannibals by swinging from vine to vine, swimming a crocodile-infested river, and avoiding rolling rocks.

DrD2k9 swings, swims, jumps, and ducks his way through the jungle to rescue his girl in record time.

Unlike the predecessor movie, this run is made using the NTSC settings. The resulting time is shorter due to faster gameplay speed, even though this run is 14 frames longer, because of the RNG difference.

Although there are plenty of similarities in terms of level design between the two games (with the first level being practically identical), the controls differ greatly compared to Super Mario Bros.

Snake Logan, the CIA's top secret agent, is sent on a dangerous recon mission, only to have his plane shot down, forcing Snake to walk the streets and kill mutants.

In this run, slamo takes control of Snake as he blasts through mutants and monsters, letting nothing (not even death) slow down his mission.

This run is an improvement of 14.06 seconds over the previous run by the same author and uses many of the same glitches. Yet another slightly different route selection as well as better optimisation sends Dracula back to his coffin even faster.

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

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

Pokémon: Pearl Version is part of the 4th generation of Pokémon games, after Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald. For the first time in the main series, it features 3D graphics and online play over the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. In addition, there are 107 new Pokémon to catch.

Although it is possible to warp large distances within the game by using out-of-bounds glitches, making it possible to skip directly to the end, this movie refrains from saving and resetting, which is required to perform that sort of long-distance warp. However, glitches are used for other purposes, such as bypassing obstacles.

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

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

This run improves the predecessor movie by 39.71 seconds.

For the out-of-bounds parts, where no textures are normally loaded, the author provided a hacked encode that shows the textures for better comprehension.

Sabrina the Teenage Witch: Potion Commotion was released for the GBA by Ubisoft in 2002. It is based on the sitcom, which is itself based on the Archie Comics spinoff series of the same name (which began in 1962). In the game's plot, several dramatic things happen with Hilda and Zelda (characters that never show up in gameplay) messing up their spells and making some sort of catastrophe that Sabrina has to fix, each catastrophe defining one of the four worlds. Along the way, Sabrina collects ingredients, which are later mixed up in a potion mini-game at the end of each world, and unlocks spells, which she can use to defeat enemies, grow vines, and so on.

Ready Steady Yeti runs through the game in record time, taking high advantage of the game's physics. The ceiling glitch used throughout the run is especially notable, since it is used to skip large portions of many of the levels.

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

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

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

While this movie appears to be around 3 seconds slower than the previous movie, it is in fact faster. This is due to more accurate emulation and also including the GBA boot sequence.

This movie has been console verified and played back on real hardware by Extrems (and was previously verified by endrift).

Zook Man ZX4 (路克人ZX4) is a Game Boy Advance game by Vast Fame and the third known game in their Zook series. It is based loosely on the Rockman X games.

The game spans eight levels including an intro stage and a final boss rush. Several enemies are taken from Rockman X and Rockman 8, with the bosses being either recycled from previous Zook Hero games or being edits from other official Megaman games. The main character's design is based off of X.

This game was run as part of TASVideos' Dream Team Contest 6, and this TAS was built on a combination of multiple submissions of said contest - hence the high number of authors.

Devil Island, also known as Emo Dao (惡魔島), is an action role-playing bootleg game for the Game Boy Color developed by Vast Fame. It copies Konami's Japan-exclusive NES game, Getsu Fuuma Den, with its gameplay. The game's aesthetics are styled after the Castlevania franchise, also by Konami. Much like Castlevania, the player's default weapon is a whip, except it can be held down for rapid fire.

This run abuses the demo mode of the game to get all items and reach the end of the game early, which is why it is so short. See the author's comments for some explanations.

Noddy and the Birthday Party is a platform game, developed by Tiertex Design Studios and published by BBC Multimedia, which was released in Europe in 2000. The game features the British children's literature and television character Noddy, and is set in Toyland, the fictional universe in which he resides. In the game's plot, Noddy has to prepare a birthday party for his friend Big-Ears. His tasks include gathering various items, such as party invitations, balloons, and candles.

This game was critically panned for its awkward controls, but that's a good thing in the eyes of a TASer. This run takes advantage of the game's extremely poor physics and level design and beats it in record time; Ready Steady Yeti prepares the whole birthday party in just seven and a half minutes.

The current Pokémon: Yellow Version speed record uses heavy glitches that allow the player to catalog every Pokémon in slightly over a minute. Is there any way to get more ridiculous than that? Yes! In this run, using nothing but the Game Boy buttons and tool-assisted precision, the game is made to run an arbitrary program which greatly expands the game and shows off cool stuff from elsewhere too. For details on how this was achieved, see the author's comments.

This movie improves upon the predecessor by using a payload which builds upon the environment in the game highlighting new areas, new Pokémon, and shows off a lot more that can be done with arbitrary code execution than displaying the digits of Pi and some minor animation. For more runs that involve arbitrary code execution, see our published list of movies which execute arbitrary code as well as discussion in our forum.

Boxxle is one of several takes of the classic Soko-Ban (1982), where the goal is to move a number of blocks to target locations. Due to the way movement works in the maze-like environments, the puzzles require some logic to complete.

Fortified Zone follows heroes Masato Kanzaki and Mizuki Makimura as they infiltrate a... fortified zone.

The gameplay is much more interesting though. The author fully utilizes the ability to switch between the two characters on the fly. Weapons are fired very precisely, and some interesting glitching is used to skip parts of the first two levels.

Go! Go! Tank is an action game released exclusively for the Game Boy. Developed by Copya System, it was released in Japan in 1990, and in North America in 1991.

In the game, a peaceful nation has been invaded by an enemy army, and you must help clear the way for your own forces by plane. You must guide your tank to the end of each stage by arranging boxes with a hook attached to the bottom of your plane, as well as by shooting enemy planes and batteries that threaten it.

ThunderAxe31 beats the game in just 10 minutes and 47 seconds, dropping boxes all over the place like crazy. This is done not just to guide the tank to the end of each level as quickly as possible, but also to mess around while waiting.

This game, also known as Rockman World (ロックマンワールド), is the first of a GB series of Mega Man games.

The Game Boy series is a little different from the NES series in that there are only four Robot Masters to fight at the start. Those four are borrowed from the NES game of the same number, while four more Robot Masters from the next NES game guard Dr. Wily’s fortress. Game Boy Wily also likes to have a backup fortress in space after his first one is beaten. Another recurring concept in the Game Boy games is a ninth robot boss unique to the game who gives you a new weapon that is usually the only weapon effective against the final boss.

The authors, Mothrayas and Tremane, improved the predecessor movie by 0.46 seconds thanks to better mole section in Wily Castle.

This is the final installment of classic Mega Man games on the Game Boy, and the first Super Game Boy Mega Man game. Unlike the four earlier Game Boy games which copied a lot from their NES counterparts, Mega Man V has all new enemies and bosses: you fight the Stardroids, robots from outer space named after the planets of the solar system (note that Pluto was considered a planet at the time). Unlike every other classic Mega Man game, Dr. Wily is not the final boss and our hero uses the Mega Arm instead of the Mega Buster.

This run improves upon the previous publication by more than six minutes of total run time, but with increased load time accuracy, new out of bound glitches, and better optimization, the real time saved compared to the previous run is nearly ten minutes.

- Uses death to save time
- Genre: Sport
Disney's Extreme Skate Adventure is a skateboarding game released in 2003, using the same engine as Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4. The game allows you to skate as characters from Toy Story, Tarzan, and The Lion King. The gameplay is similar to that of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4, but containing simplified controls and limited tricks. There are three main modes of the game, Adventure Mode, Free Skate, and Versus. Unlike regular Tony Hawk's Pro Skater games, there is no actual story mode to complete. Instead, there are goals scattered across every level.

In this run, Fog unlocks every level and every skater as fast as possible.

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door is an RPG made by Nintendo and is the second game in the Paper Mario series following Paper Mario for the Nintendo 64. It incorporates a world made of paper and turn-based battles, much like its predecessor. In it, Peach asks Mario to help find a treasure hidden in Rogueport. When he arrives, she is missing as usual, and he must collect 7 Crystal Stars to save her and open the Thousand-Year Door to collect the treasure.

Malleoz improved his previous TAS by nearly five minutes and thirty seconds with the new Hazard Respawn Glitch as well as an improved Palace Skip.

Spyro: Enter The Dragonfly is a platform/adventure game released in 2003. It's the first Spyro game not to be developed by Spyro creators Insomniac Games, instead being developed by Check Six Studios and Equinoxe Entertainment. The game is infamous for its rushed nature and being riddled with bugs, with many considering it one of the worst games of the franchise.

In this run, Fog abuses a seam in the base of the portal leading to the final boss, which allows the entire game to be skipped and completed in just over a minute of total game play.

3 Ninjas Kick Back is a traditional platform game based on the movie of the same name. Each one of the three ninjas has unique weapons and abilities. All three of them can run, duck, crawl, climb, jump, as well as hang on trees, ropes, and so on. You'll encounter many obstacles and enemies, both regular and boss-like, which you'll have to overcome and defeat.

Areas include the rooftops of Gotham City, Max Shreck's department store, the Red Triangle Circus and the sewers. Besides run-and-jump action, there's also a lot of combat in the game, as many of the Penguin's henchmen stand in Batman's way. He can knock them out with punches and kicks and a number of extra weapons stored in his utility belt. These include batarangs, which come in standard and self-seeking varieties, and smoke bombs that stun enemies for a while. In addition, Batman can shoot from his grappling gun and unleash a deadly swarm of bats towards enemies. All of these weapons have limited ammo, however, that must be collected.

This movie here is one that makes little to no sense to someone who isn't familiar with the game. The main character can move very fast and the dark graphics don't help in figuring out what's going on. There is a lot more going on in this movie than meets the eye. For example, the player uses a secret warp involving combining the alchemy potions that are scattered throughout the levels.

This improves the previous run of the game by 29.5 seconds thanks to a route change.

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

Crack Down (クラックダウン) is a run and gun arcade game originally released by Sega in 1989, and ported to the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis in 1990.

This is a 2D Run and Gun game where you need to plant bombs in designated locations then escape. It has a 1 and a 2 player mode. This game features some neat music as well.

This is an improvement over the previous "1 player" TAS of 2:05.09 minutes due to a glitch which allows to cross some very thin walls. This run also obsoletes the "2 player" one.

Dynamite Headdy (1994) is an often-overlooked action/platformer gem whose main hero, a star puppet named Headdy, can attack his enemies by shooting his detachable head at them.

During the span of the game, Headdy must defeat the evil puppet king Dark Demon who captured his friends' home town, the Keymasters that guard the path to the villain, and Headdy's lifelong rival Trouble Bruin, who is eager to take his place in the production.

To prevent all those bad things from happening, Headdy has a nice arsenal of interchangeable heads that are used both to attack enemies and to aid traveling, which brings enough variety to entertain the viewer throughout the movie.

This run is an improvement of 45.75 seconds over the predecessor publication. It is achieved through a variety of improved movement, new glitches/tricks, and better RNG manipulation. Some key time saves include better Hangman/Spike Head flings, a couple small sequence breaks, and a boss phase skip.

Fantasia is the title of a side-scrolling video game developed by Infogrames and produced by Sega for its own Mega Drive/Genesis system. The game was loosely based on the film of the same name.

In the game, the player controls Mickey Mouse as the Sorcerer's Apprentice through various side-scrolling levels in an attempt to collect musical notes that somehow went missing whilst he was asleep. The game's four levels were based on amalgamations of the segments of Fantasia, each one around the elements: water (The Sorcerer's Apprentice, Dance of the Reed Flutes and Arabian Dance), earth (The Rite of Spring), air (Russian Dance, Pastoral Symphony and Dance of the Hours) and fire (Night on Bald Mountain, Toccata and Fugue in D Minor). The player defeats various enemies by jumping on them or by collecting magical bubbles that could be used to shoot at enemies as projectiles. In each level, the player collects a certain number of hidden magical notes in order for the song to play once again.

In this run, maTO makes his way through the game as fast as possible.

These devices allow Monobe to project energy bolts and create energy ropes to swing on, in addition to basic fighting skills, running, jumping, and rolling. The player must use his skills and his devices to traverse the many strange lands of the game.

In this run, maTO runs, jumps, rolls, and swings his way throughout the world to find the mysterious past of his people.

Set after the events of the first movie, Sega's Ghostbusters follows the further adventures of Peter, Ray, and Egon, as the make their way through six cases in an attempt to piece together a mysterious stone tablet.

Completely different than the Activision title of the same name, the Genesis Ghostbusters is a side-scrolling platformer that has the boys in gray running through houses, apartments, a burning house and a high-rise for starters as they battle a myriad of ghosts with their proton blasters. When the Ghostbusters face off against a boss ghost, they have the ability to trap them the traditional way.

Peter, Ray, and Egon each have different abilities, and can purchase weapon and life upgrades from shops throughout the levels. Other familiar faces make an appearance, as Slimer offers power-ups, and the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man returns to settle the score from the movie.

In this new attempt Soig improves his previous movie by 3:55.83 minutes.

James Pond 3: Operation Starfish (1993) is a platform game starring a super agile fish named James Pond, which has been Amiga's somewhat preemptive answer to Sonic the Hedgehog and Super Mario World games. The physics of this game allow for many interesting acrobatics, like running up the walls and ceilings at breakneck speed. As such, these abilities are abused to the point where, in some parts, Pond bounces around as fast as Sonic does.

Following the game's plot, the evil Dr. Maybe attempts to take over the dairy industry, for which he constructs a giant stronghold on the Moon. Because, as you probably know, its surface is made of cheese. The overworld map spans over 100 levels, but most of them are optional.

This run is the author's third submission of this game. The Cheese Mines and Stiltonium Machines were destroyed in order to reach the good ending. According to the author, the bad ending is about as bad as losing the game, as you get a non-standard game over instead of the ending.

He improves the previous run by 4:42.29, thanks to new glitch discoveries and better optimisation in many places. Please read the author's comments for more details.

This game is what you get if you take Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and lock it onto Sonic & Knuckles. As the name suggests, what you get is simply Sonic the Hedgehog 2 with Knuckles the Echidna as the playable character. The levels remain mostly unchanged, save for the addition of a few monitors that can only be reached as Knuckles, whose abilities from Sonic and Knuckles (gliding, climbing walls, and jumping a little lower than Sonic) remain intact.

In this run, you'll see the zones of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (colloquially referred to as West Side Island in the Japanese manual) like you've never seen them before, as Knuckles uses every trick in the book to collect over five thousand rings, with only 11 throughout the game eluding his grasp. (For the time being, anyway...)

We also have runs with Sonic and Tails and Knuckles in this game.

This is a version of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 with Sonic & Knuckles locked on it. The title character is replaced by his rival, Knuckles. The levels remain unchanged.

There is more than just an appearance change to this game. Knuckles' abilities remain intact. If you haven't seen Sonic the Hedgehog 2 completed before, you may wish to do so before seeing what a character with a spindash and gliding can accomplish.

The run is an improvement of 5.9 seconds in-game time over the predecessor movie. The author's comments contain a whole bunch of details.

We also have runs with Sonic and Tails and where Knuckles is going for the max rings challenge.


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

A Sonic video without Sonic! Instead, Knuckles takes the spotlight and collects all the Chaos (and Super) Emeralds.

This run improves upon the previous publication from Evil_3D by 30.23 seconds, thanks to the help of some new glitches and strategies.

We also have similar runs with Sonic and Tails, Amy, Knuckles, Tails, Knuckles ring attack, Sonic 100%, Competition mode and Sonic and Tails on NewGame+.


Each second link or sets of encodes use a camhack, in order to have the camera focus on Knuckles while keeping the sprites in the foreground.

Sonic 3 & Knuckles completed with Knuckles. Tired of always doing ring-attacks and 100% runs, Knuckles has finally decided it is his turn to break the game in an any% TAS. This run uses a disassembly of the game in order to use the most of every trick.

We also have runs with Knuckles 100%, Knuckles ring attack, Knuckles in Sonic 1, Knuckles in Sonic 2, Knuckles in Sonic 2 ring attack, Sonic and Tails, Tails, Amy, Sonic 100%, Competition mode and Sonic and Tails on NewGame+.

Sonic bounces around surprisingly fast. The lack of Spin Dash makes the strategy a bit different from that of Sonic the Hedgehog 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 ninth publication of this branch, improving on the previous effort by 7.88 (of in-game time), due to even tighter optimization and some new shortcuts.

There are also runs where Knuckles and Tails they take advantage of their own abilities to finish the game in record time.

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

We also have movies in Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Sonic the Hedgehog CD and Sonic 3 & Knuckles


Every second encode link leads to a camhacked version. But don't expect the videos where Sonic is visible offscreen to make any more sense than the original ones!

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

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

This is an improvement of 12.88 seconds over the predecessor movie.

Spoiler: Hover over the screenshot.

We have a run where Knuckles replaces the main characters and finish the game in record time, and another run where he's going for the max rings challenge.

We also have movies in Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog CD and Sonic 3 & Knuckles.


Every second link leads to a CamHack encode that keeps Sonic visible all the time.

Super Mario World 64 is a pirated port of the SNES Super Mario World, made for the Sega Mega Drive by an unknown developer, at an unknown date (but most likely after the original release of Super Mario 64 in 1996).

In the game you play as Mario alone; Yoshi makes no appearance whatsoever. Holding A allows you to run, but the distance required before Mario starts running is longer than expected, making careful jumps that require the distance a bit tricky. Control in general is also very stiff.

Sylvester and Tweety in Cagey Capers was the first game to star the iconic Looney Tunes duo. As Sylvester, your goal is to catch Tweety as he moves across the level away from you. The game has a difficulty slider adjusting how hard the canary is to catch. Of course, this TAS slides it all the way up.

This run utilizes tricks to move Tweety forward in the level, including scaring and swiping at him, until he can be caught at the end. The author, maTO, catches the bird in all levels in a little over 5 minutes.

For a run of a game with a similar mechanic, see Tom and Jerry: The Movie.

This game is considered to be extremely hard, especially for a speedrun. One hit equals death, and your character moves very slowly. Some quotes about this game:
Spacecow: Knowing how easy it is to die in this game, you certainly do cheat death an awful lot.
Frenom: I got the original of this game and I cant even make it to the next level without dying on Easiest.
daniayaw: This game is _impossible_ to beat without savestates..

However, thanks to the use of a glitch with the demo system to warp to 8-3, the majority of the game is skipped, saving 21:16.03 minutes over the previous publication.

The Sonic games for the Sega Master System and the Game Gear are much less well known than their Genesis/Mega Drive counterparts and have a reputation for being quite challenging, especially in handheld form. You'd never know this from the speed Sonic blazes through the game here.

Unlike later 8-bit Sonic games, there are significant differences in levels between the SMS version and the Game Gear version; here the latter is used primarily for faster boss fights.

This run improves the predecessor movie by 2.29 real-time seconds, and by 1:22.29 minutes of total in-level time. What makes the real-time difference so small is the larger time bonuses. To compensate for that, the author has made an encode that cuts out the bonus screen and the level title cards.

If you like this run, also check out the run for SMS Sonic 2.

Wendy Witchcart is an old human witch who rides around in a specialized rail cart on an island that she claims as her own, and is the main villain who turns the islanders into crystals. Miles "Tails" Prower, better known as Sonic the Hedgehog's sidekick, is afraid of seeing a world filled with the witch's rails and decides to stop her on his own.

While Sonic collects rings to protect himself, Tails carries a special ring that he can throw like a boomerang or grab things with. Since collected crystals cost time on the score tally screen, the author simply ignores them all.

While this movie appears to be slower by 0.20 seconds than the previous publication, it is in fact faster by around a third of a second. This is because the site now assumes the proper framerate for Game Gear movies, while it assumed a flat 60 FPS back when the previous movie was published.

Advanced Dungeons & Dragons: Cloudy Mountain was released for the Intellivision console in 1982 and was the first licensed D&D videogame. Though it bears little resemblance to the iconic tabletop RPG, it does have dungeons and it also has dragons.

The gameplay involves exploring a series of randomly generated mazes, searching for tools or arrows with which to progress on the overworld map, or to defeat monsters. The end goal is to reach Cloudy Mountain and recover the Crown of Kings from the fearsome winged dragons.

In the site's first ever Intellivision publication, TheWinslinator uses both controllers and a major skip to retrieve the Crown of Kings in record time.

Although at war with the same enemy in the same castle, the player must fight as 4 different characters, with improved graphics and a new look to certain areas that appeared in the original.

To begin with, set 8 years before the events that took place in Castlevania, the count has kidnapped the young sister of Cornell, a powerful werewolf. As Cornell, the player must battle through the castle and defeat Dracula to save Cornell's sister.

In this run, zoboner beats the game as Cornell as fast as possible.

Donkey Kong 64 is similar to Rareware's other Nintendo 64 platformer series, Banjo-Kazooie, but stars Donkey Kong and his friends from the Donkey Kong Country games. Several new features have been added to the game, like 3D graphics and the ability to change between different characters with different weapons and abilities.

In this run, RingRush uses glitches to skip a vast majority of the game and beat K. Rool in record time.

Due to differences between versions of the game, different timing methods, and the fact that RTA runs start with some features already unlocked, this run is slower than the RTA equivalent.

Take a collection of fist-fighters, wrestlers and martial arts experts, and combine them into one tournament. But instead of simply depleting the health bar, you must win points depending on how you defeat an opponent; for example, ring-outs are 1 point, special moves 4 points and counters for special moves 2 points.

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. Ryuji is used because of his extremely fast counter-throw.

This is an improvement of 0.89 seconds over the previous movie, thanks to better luck manipulation.

Paper Mario, first released in Japan in August of 2000, is a role-playing game for the Nintendo 64. Bowser has kidnapped Princess Peach and stolen the Star Rod, which allows him to grant himself any wish. To counteract the power of the Star Rod, Mario must locate the seven Star Spirits, who can combine their power to stop Bowser's evil plans.

Malleoz aims to collect all the star spirit cards by heavily manipulating luck and impressively abusing programming errors and loading zones, making this run a whirlwind of entertainment and speed. For a detailed explanation of the tricks used in this run, see the author's submission notes.

Super Mario 64: The Green Stars is a Super Mario 64 rom hack made by Kampel, released in August 2013. Also listed under "hacking" in the credits are Kaze, Frauber and VL-Tone.

The hack has a number of differences compared to the original game, such as an increased count of 130 stars, harder level design, and (as the title implies) green stars. The game is intended as a fan-made sequel to Super Mario 64, and is often praised for feeling very similar to the original game.

The trio of authors power through the hack with incredible speed, showcasing the various levels and landscapes, abusing the game's programming errors, and collecting all 130 stars in under 100 minutes.

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

Award - N64 TAS of 2017
Super Smash Bros. began a series of games that mixes characters from several Nintendo-made games into a unique fighting game. It relies not on wearing down the opponent's "life" but increasing damage until he or she can be literally knocked off the stage. Wildly popular, this game has inspired many lazy days of casual multiplayer gaming but also intense competitive tournaments that happen to this day.

In this run, Isotarge & Mittenz team up and tackle the two timed bonus games with all unlockable characters.

Due to regional differences between releases of this game, the authors ran through both the Japanese and North American games. Ultimately, the Japanese version was deemed faster and published, but the North American run is available too. See the submission thread for more details, and for higher resolution encodes.

Award - Lucky TAS of 2017
In this TAS of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, the author aims to beat the game as quickly as possible while completing all dungeons, temples, and Ganon Trials. This goal is commonly referred to as "all temples", "all dungeons", or "MST (Medallions/Stones/Trials)".

This run has 22:15.68 minutes of improvements in gameplay over the previous TAS of its kind.

This movie contains a newer route and newer strategies which allow for a much faster completion than were possible when the last run was made. Several large glitches in the game are not used in the run, such as the Reverse Bottle Adventure or the Get Item Manipulation glitch. These are avoided because it would make the completion of any dungeon completely arbitrary; they can be seen in an old any% run.

This TAS is played on the Japanese version of the game. The reason for this is that the text is significantly faster than in the English version, which means that far less time (roughly 12 minutes) is spent waiting for text boxes and cut scenes to end before getting back to the action.

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 encode of higher resolutions in the discussion thread.

In this TAS of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, the author aims to beat the game as quickly as possible, while completing all dungeons, and with the added challenge of doing so without opening any doors. He achieves this by exploiting multiple glitches not seen in any other category of the game in order to complete this challenge.

The submission notes go over in great details all the stipulations of the goal, the tricks, and glitches.

This TAS was done using the Japanese v1.0 version of the game. The reasons for this are glitches that are exclusive to v1.0, as well as text that 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.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Platform
In this game based on the cartoon of the same name, young Chad Finletter is on a quest to stop the evil Dr. Putrid T. Gangreen from unleashing his Doomsday Tomato on the world. As the rest of the townsfolk are too afraid of the mutant vegetables coming out of the sewers to do anything, Chad is the only one who can save the day.

It's a simple platform game where most of the enemies can be defeated by jumping on them. There are also several bosses Chad must face, including the Doomsday Tomato itself.

This run improves TASeditor's previous work by 6.15 seconds, mainly due to better speed cycling and luck manipulation.

Battletoads (1991) is a futuristic beat 'em up game known for its extreme difficulty spread over 16 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 order to make the game a bit easier, its creators embedded some secret warp zones to skip a few early levels in their entirety. But that simply wasn't good enough for MESHUGGAH, feos & Koh1fds; they decided to travel directly to level 3, where they invent their own warp and skip right to the grand finale. They took a glitch found in this TAS and exploited it even further, to the point where the Dark Queen just gives up and returns Angelica and Pimple, going off to hatch an even more evil plan for next time. The glitch is done by breaking the game execution and sending it right to the game ending.

This run conquers the predecessor movie by 0.84 seconds by using a more accurate core and a newly discovered void jump trick.

- Uses hardest difficulty
- Uses a level password
- Genre: Puzzle
Boulder Dash is a well known action-puzzle game where you must collect a quota of diamonds and reach the exit.

Normally, standing under any falling object or just getting close to an enemy means instant death, but in this movie the player fearlessly dives through heaps of falling objects and walks past enemies without a scratch.

It's quite pleasureable to watch if you have ever sat screaming at this game for getting stuck or killed repeatedly.

This playthrough uses a password to skip to level 19-1, which begins the hardest set of levels.

In this 71-second improvement to the previous movie, CtrlAltDestroy finds even faster solutions to many of the game's puzzles, and destroys the amoebas in record time by abusing their AI.

If science fiction is to be believed, the ultimate evolution for biological beings is to discard the physical body and become an entity of pure energy. For video game characters, it seems to be the ability to zip through walls. In this latest TAS by zggzdydp, Simon Belmont joins the league of characters possessing this ability.

Castlevania II: Simon's Quest is the story of Simon's horrible weekend without sleep. Two years after defeating Dracula, the hero is physically weakened by Dracula's curse. He must gather Dracula's remains and incinerate them at the ruins of Castlevania in order to end the curse.

This movie is 85 seconds faster than the previous effort by the same author. We recommend to read his comments for explanations on how this improvement was achieved.

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

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

This movie takes the path that recruits Sypha. There's also a Grant path movie and an Alucard path movie.

This is an improvement of 1:18.69 over the previous movie, thanks to improved usage of Sypha's ice spell and overall better optimisation.
