- Uses death to save time
- Genre: Platform
You play as a treasure hunter named Panama Joe, whose goal is to find an ancient treasure hidden by Aztec warrior deep inside catacombs. But beware, the catacombs are a large maze inhabited by monsters. Bouncing and rolling skulls, dancing spiders, disappearing and re-appearing chains and tons of fire await you. You'll have to find many keys and unlock doors in order to reach your goal. Panama Joe can jump and climb ladders, but doesn't have much to offer in terms of combat. That's why the monsters in the game should be avoided: a collision with an enemy leads to a premature death. He will also find amulets which make him invulnerable for a short time. Except for the Master System version, they are activated directly when picked up.

Watch as DrD2k9 goes through this port's three levels gathering all the items in record time.

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.

Lobsterzelda improves the previous run by 4.57 seconds.

Road Runner was released for the Atari 2600 in 1989, making it one of the last games officially released by Atari for the Atari 2600. The game was a port of an arcade game of the same name, which was also ported to several other consoles like the Commodore 64.

You play as the Road Runner, and you spend each level running to the left trying to dodge obstacles and avoid Wile E. Coyote. The road is littered with landmines and speeding trucks, which will kill the road runner on contact. They can also kill Wile E., but he respawns again after a few seconds. Wile. E. also has guns set up at certain portions of the road, roller skates, and a rocket ship which he can use to try to grab the road runner.

Tetris the Absolute: The Grand Master 2 is the second arcade game in Arika's Tetris: The Grand Master series. The Grand Master 2 introduced the less-intimidating Normal Mode to attract more casual gamers, as well as an all-new grading system in Master Mode, the continuation of TGM's original gameplay.

Tetris the Absolute: The Grand Master 2 Plus is a free upgrade of TGM2, which added TGM+ Mode and the famous T.A. Death Mode that is played in this movie. This mode is notable for starting at maximum gravity (pieces appear to always be in contact with the ground) and increasing in speed from there.

Steelix100 completes the T.A. Death Mode in record time while using wall kicks to speed up horizontal piece movement, getting 5 Gold Medals, and also achieving the Secret Grand Master grade. The in-game time is 02:42.63.

Violent Storm is a 1993 side-scrolling beat-'em-up for the arcades produced by Konami. Up to three players can choose between Wade, Boris and Kyle, who have different fighting styles, speed and moves, some of which are hidden. Players must guide them through 7 different stages, along the way clashing hordes of enemies who wallop, sock, pommel, whip and slug against the players, sometimes with knives, lead pipes, bombs, bolts of electricity, spiked balls on chains, garbage cans, vise grips, molten metal and a myriad of other deadly armament. Lots of fun.

Mihoru uses Boris and Wade to blaze through the game as fast as possible.

This game has two distinct parts where Batman fights against either the Penguin or the Joker. In this movie, Dimon12321 beats the second part quickly by passively ignoring punches, throwing knives, and even bullets heading his direction.

At first glance it looks like a pleasant wooded glade on a peaceful, mild day. Watch out! It's a giant spider! Run! You don't know how it happened; you don't know how you got here, but, unfortunately, you've wandered into the Forbidden Forest!

You'll find a bow in your hand and a quiver full of arrows on your back, as well as four more full quivers on the ground beside you. You're going to need them.

The Forbidden Forest is a place on this world but certainly not of this world. It is a place of unrelenting terror and trial. It is ruled by the dreaded Demogorgon demonic king of monsters. He will send in his horde of grisly creatures against anyone who dares enter his realm. And if by some miracle, or your own skill, you should vanquish his army, you will have to face the Demogorgon himself. A word of encouragement: no one has ever returned from the Forbidden Forest alive!

Note: Loading finishes and gameplay starts at 2:32. The loading section may be seizure-inducing.

Snoopy is a pet of Charlie Brown's, the everlasting loser and the main character of the "Peanuts" comic series. Snoopy only behaves species-appropriate. Most of the time he lies on the roof of his dog kennel and abandons himself to philosophical thoughts while waiting for the food.

In 1984, he was dedicated an own C64 game Snoopy. A game from a time when Jump & Runs found their feet, it is about steering Snoopy through 20 tricky levels. If you have made it, you restart at level 1 only with higher speed. The obstacles can be simple holes, moats, laser beams and more.

This is a Mega Man game that was not developed by Capcom, but rather by Stephen Rozner of Hi-Tech Expressions, who did all the design, programming, graphics, and sound. The game is infamous for its mediocre quality.

In this run, David Fifield shaves 36.61 seconds off the previous movie. The majority of the savings come from a glitch that allows most of Volt Man's stage to be skipped. Other improvements include better movement throughout the stages and faster boss fights.


This game runs too fast on anything more modern than a low-end 386 or so. As such, the encode is technically correct.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is written by Douglas Adams and Steven Meretzky and based on Adams’ BBC radio series, television series, and the series of subsequent novelizations. It’s one of the classic Interactive Fiction games produced by Infocom, labeled as Science Fiction and has a Standard Level of Difficulty. Though divergent from the source material, the main characters, locations, and concepts are here. Unlike the book, death can come quickly if Arthur fails to observe his surroundings, collect inventory, talk to people, and consult the Guide. DON’T PANIC!

c-square completes the game in record time.

Note: Due to the sheer speed of the text scrolling, the second set of encodes are slowed down to 10% of the original speed. However, we recommend you play the game or read the book before you watch the slowed down version, as it spoils the fun of the game.

The Mysterious Murasame Castle, also known as its original Japanese release title Nazo no Murasamejou, is a Famicom Disk System game developed by Nintendo EAD and published in 1986, only two months after The Legend of Zelda which it bears some similarities to. The story takes place in Edo period Japan. The titular Murasame Castle is taken over by a mysterious alien creature, who extends its power to four other neighboring castles. The daimyō lords of each castle are each given an evil sphere of power, and they use this power to summon armies of ninja and monsters to terrorize the nearby villages. Shōgun Tokugawa Ietsuna sends out samurai apprentice Takamaru to investigate the castles, defeat each castle lord along the way, and stop the aliens.

Mothrayas defeats said alien creature and restores peace to the region in record time.

It is an "interquel" to the original two N64 games, taking place while Gruntilda is trapped under the boulder in Spiral Mountain. Klungo creates a Mecha-Grunty suit for Grunty's soul to control, and she kidnaps Kazooie, travelling back in time 20 years (somehow) to keep Banjo and Kazooie from ever meeting! Mumbo sends Banjo back in time as well (somehow) to rescue his friend and destroy Mecha-Grunty, with the help of Bottles's ancestor, Bozzeye.

g0goTBC collects all jiggies, notes, jinjos, moves, Mumbo tokens and honeycombs in less than an hour.

It consists of four series named after chess pieces: "Pawn", "Knight", "Bishop" and "Queen", each having five races in four difficulty settings. In this movie, Memory uses the best unlockable machine at the hardest difficulty setting to blaze through the Pawn tracks of the Grand Prix mode.

Kuru Kuru Kururin is an unusual game that is a mix of racing/puzzle genres. The player controls a slowly spinning stick called the Helirin, and must maneuver it through a series of mazes. The player controls the direction and speed of movement but not the Helirin's constant rotation.

mohoc and E-Sh4rk improve the previous movie by 4 minutes and 10.49 seconds, thanks to the discovery of wall clipping and out of bounds goal zones. Please read the authors' comments for more details. Of note that this TAS also plays the training stages, whilst Ryuto's TAS did not.

There is also a run of the sequel, Kururin Paradise.


The second set of encodes feature a camhack, where the camera is centered at the Helirin, as well as displaying the OoB elements.

Super Mario Ball, also known as Mario Pinball Land in the US, is an adventure quest combined with a pinball game, similar to Pinball Quest.

In the game you need to flip Mario like a pinball to obtain stars and keys, defeat enemies, and advance levels.

Of course the author completes these objectives with speed and precision and often while juggling multiple balls.

MUGG improves his previous movie by 20.71 seconds, thanks to route changes and slight optimizations.

Samus's first adventure is retold in Metroid: Zero Mission with extra storyline, extra items and on a system with a better graphics processor. This run completes the game with 100% item collection, at least as far as the end-of-game display is concerned.

This run is an improvement over Dragonfangs's previous work. It saves about 4 seconds of In-Game time, but uses a new route that removes lots of door transitions, saving about 20 seconds of real time. The previous run used VisualBoyAdvance that runs this game inaccurately fast compared to BizHawk (mGBA core) used here, which is why the movie time appears longer.


There is also an alternate YouTube stream featuring audio commentary by the author as well as members of the speedrunning community.

The game was later introduced to Nintendo's Game Boy Advance in 2004, which Atlus USA released in North America in 2005.

The player takes the role of Ein, a Grim Angel, who must battle against demons as well as antagonistic Grim Angels to seal away the four fountainheads of evil known as the Accursed. He is accompanied by four heroines—Fia, Lina, Serene and Cierra—as well as his cat-like familiar Rose. Riviera also contains dating sim elements, as the hero can achieve multiple endings with the supporting characters through decisions made throughout the game.

Sonic Advance was Sonic the Hedgehog's first appearance on a portable Nintendo console, and he brought all his friends with him.

This run proves that Knuckles the Echidna is up to the task of zipping through levels at warp speed and defeating Dr. Eggman yet again. Don't blink! In this movie, the author doesn't take advantage of the game-destroying spindash glitch featured in this run as Sonic.

While it may seem that it's only 0.73 seconds faster than the previous movie due to more accurate emulation, it is in fact faster by 33.13 seconds in in-game time. Please read the author's comments for more details.

Turok: Evolution for the Game Boy Advance is a side scrolling 2D shooter video game released in 2002.

In this prequel to the previous Turok games, you are Tal'Set, the saviour of natives of the River Village in the Lost Lands, who must confront the evil Lord Tyrannus, leader of the reptilian hordes. Tyrannus is bent on a "Holy Mission" to purify the Lost Land through slaughter and misery.

During the fight with your nemesis Captain Tobias Bruckner in 1886 Texas, you were injured and sucked in to the Lost Lands. After recovering in the village, you discover that Tyrannus appoints a new general to his armies – Bruckner. So you begin the war in a land of lush jungles, suspended cities, mysterious temples, reptile armies, and towering dinosaurs.

This movie is 58.61 seconds faster than hejops's previous attempt, thanks to better optimization and routing.

Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles is an action role playing game developed by The Game Designers Studio and published by Square Enix in 2003 for the Nintendo GameCube. This was the first Final Fantasy game to include real-time fighting, which has since become a staple of Final Fantasy games.

You control a caravan and its members, and travel in a hostile world with dungeons and monsters. You collect drops of Myrrh to protect your village, and go on a quest to find and destroy the source of the miasma that corrupts the world.

Wobmiar uses the Selkie tribe to fight and luck-manipulate through the game collecting Myrrh and money, obtains the Mystery Element, and defeats the final boss in one hour and a half, which translates to 5 in-game years.

To do so, Chuck must overcome several dangers, such as clever fishes, seals with sunglasses, and maniac bulldozers. At his disposal, Chuck has several ability-enhancing potions, as well as a spare skull to chuck at his enemies.

This is a 0.90 second improvement over the previous run of this game. Note that if you compare movie times directly, the visible time difference will be a bit smaller, because the old movie was using Gens, which runs at higher framerate than actual Genesis console (and BizHawk).

The Genesis version of Double Dragon, released by Accolade without license from Sega, is considered the most faithful port of the original arcade game. In addition, due to the more powerful hardware on the Genesis, the slowdown problems from the original 8-bit game have been fixed.

In his second adventure, James Pond must save Santa Claus's toy workshop from Dr. Maybe. Pond has been equipped with a robotic suit--hence the code name "RoboCod"--due to the challenges of the mission. It includes an Inspector Gadget-style stretch device, which he can use to view higher areas or claw onto ceilings and slide across them.

This run saves 3049 frames over the previous one but is longer because it completes the two secret levels. Time savings come from faster boss fights, avoidance of unnecessary bonuses, better HP management, and more optimized movement.

The Skull-like mask tells Rick that Jennifer can still be saved, so he returns to the Splatterhouse in hopes of saving his girlfriend.

Watch as EZGames69 takes a leisurely walk by hordes of zombies and other disgusting monsters, abusing some sliding tricks to maintain fast speed and defeat bosses quickly.

Axiom Verge, released in 2015, is a 2D Metroidvania platform shooter centered around the protagonist Trace, a scientist who, after an experiment gone wrong, finds himself on the world of Sudra, separated from Earth by a deadly void called the Breach. By the time Trace arrives on Sudra he finds both the world and its civilization collapsed due to the release of a certain pathogen in the act of biological warfare. With the help of the Rusalki — giant war machines that guard this world — Trace has to uncover the truth behind the fall of Sudra, confront the perpetrator behind it, and return back to his home world across the Breach.

The game takes heavy inspiration from early Metroid games and some other platformers of the era and employs a number of unconventional — and at times very creative! — storytelling and gameplay design decisions, and is all-around well-made and received accordingly. If you enjoy action platformers or exploration-driven games with a solid sci-fi plot, playing through Axiom Verge is highly recommended before watching the TAS, especially considering the latter 1/4 of it (as well as the 4th boss fight, which is a major mindscrew moment in the story) might become incomprehensible otherwise.

keylie improves the previous TAS by almost 3 minutes, thanks to getting the grappling hook and better optimisation, skipping a boss in the process. He completes the game's speedrun mode (which shows an in-game timer and disables all cutscenes) in 25:09.24 by the in-game timer, picking up 15% of items. Boss times: 02:26.52 (Xedur), 05:39.08 (Telal), 11:02.19 (Uruku), 18:20.54 (Vision), 20:23.42 (Ukhu).

Mari0 is a PC game created by stabyourself.net in 2012 that combines the classic Super Mario Bros. with the puzzle-platfomer Portal by giving Mario a portal gun. The game launched with 2 "mappacks", with the one most people played being the Super Mario Bros. mappack containing the original set of levels. This TAS instead showcases the other mappack which features 18 Portal-inspired puzzles spread across 9 different levels.

noellekiq and Masterjun improve the previous publication by 10.43 seconds, mainly thanks to using four players to plow through the levels and abusing tricks that are only possible in multiplayer.

There's an alternate Youtube encode provided by the authors that show this TAS as it was shown at AGDQ2019 (featuring four TASBots instead of four Marios as well as a game timer).

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

Masterjun improves the previous run by 2 minutes and 56.01 seconds, thanks to exploiting a glitch in the infamous Gravitron intermission, allowing one to skip directly to the end through the Gravitron. Please read the author's comments for more details.

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

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.

Based on the 1988 Michael Keaton movie, Beetlejuice follows the rough storyline of the movie. A ghoul named Beetlejuice is hired by a recently deceased couple to scare away the new occupants of their old home. The game is a side scrolling action game where the lead character can run, jump, and stomp his way through the house while collecting "scare points" to help in his ultimate goal. The house is equipped with all manner of traps including incinerating lasers, and even the torches hurt.

A very important part of Nintendo's history is being presented here on our website — as a tool-assisted speedrun.

Donkey Kong Jr., along with Donkey Kong, were classic games that were played by millions of players on various consoles, including the NES, Atari 2600 and Game and Watch. The story is that Jumpman, now known as Mario, has captured his rival Donkey Kong and it's up to Junior to save his dad.

Although one would not expect a movie of Donkey Kong Jr. to be interesting to watch, except in the retro sense, this movie is actually quite surprising. The vines are cleverly utilized to move the hero forward faster than any member of the Kong family before or after this game.

This is a 539 frame improvement over the previous movie thanks to time-saving glitches.

A long time ago, before human being appeared, there lived a monster named Firebrand. In this game, Firebrand (the red gargoyle) fights against the evil that has invaded his homeland. Along the way, he becomes more powerful and becomes able to fly longer, jump higher, and shoot more weapons.

Jigwally improves the previous publication by 1 minute and 55.06 seconds, mainly thanks to using death warps, but also thanks to better optimisation.

Ikari Warriors is a vertically scrolling action game where one or two players fight their way through a variety of terrain, such as jungles, rivers, and ruins. The player has to negotiate the 4 long levels mainly on foot, but will also find tanks and helicopters along the way to make things a little more manageable in some sections. With its one-hit deaths, poor manoeuverability and no continues, this is a prime example of NES hardcore-gaming.

ktwo improves the previous record by 6.98 seconds due to better optimization and some new finds.

Super Mario Bros 3 is a very famous game for the NES. There are normally two main ways to beat it: the quick way using warp whistles to skip worlds, and the longer way which goes through all the worlds.

This run improves on the previous movie by 10469 frames (that's 2:54.18) via exploiting a bug in which very rapid input overwhelms the game's controller read routines, allowing the game to be completed directly from anywhere (in this case, the title screen).

Most dominoes stand forever, just waiting to be toppled over. But no one can stop Mr. Domino - he has to run around everywhere, causing mayhem everywhere he goes. Help Mr. Domino use the domino effect to trigger tricks and traps on unsuspecting objects and people!

No One Can Stop Mr. Domino is a puzzle game which sees you controlling the titular Mr. Domino (or one of his friends, if you prefer) as he zips around levels which can be best described as a racetrack. As the title suggests, you can't actually stop Mr. Domino - however, you can guide him around the track, speed him up and slow him down. He'll need to dodge obstacles as he aims to activate "tricks" which are placed around the board.

In this run, Spikestuff improves his previous effort by 3.23 seconds via a new route in the level Tripping in The Park. Mr. Domino proves that, once again, he cannot be stopped.

In the 16th century, a sword surfaces that is so powerful, so evil that warriors from all over the globe seek it out. It is Soul Edge, a demon blade. From America to Europe to Japan, these warriors fight each other for the chance to obtain it. Soul Blade is a 3D weapons fighting game that chronicles their story.

A complete 3D fighting game that allows for side steps, Soul Blade has twelve colorful fighters (ten standard, two hidden, plus additional costumes for a few fighters), each with various weapons and styles. The first ten can be used in all the combat modes, while the hidden two can only be used in versus and arcade mode.

Namco enhanced the arcade version (called Soul Edge) by adding a well done CGI intro, plus a story mode to the addition of the traditional team, survival, and time attack modes. The story mode goes into greater detail about each character, and is presented in an ancient book format. The story mode also allows you to unlock more of each characters' extra weapons. These weapons, which vary in lengths, stats, and durability, add to the options available players in the versus mode.

Soul Blade's sequel is SoulCalibur, both in the arcades and for the Sega Dreamcast.

Spikestuff improves the previous publication by 0"23 in in-game time, thanks to better optimisation.

The follow-up to Tekken is a versus fighting game featuring similar mechanics, with four buttons assigned to left and right punches and kicks. New moves include back throws, chain-throws, and a sidestep unique to Kazuya and Heihachi Mishima. Tackles now inflict damage depending on the distance.

This time, Spikestuff disables music and enables Quick Select to complete the game even faster. This improves on the previous publication by 2"81 in in-game time, thanks to doing the aforementioned steps and better optimization.

Since the game is rather dull without its music, the downloadable encodes feature alternate audio tracks that restore the in-game music. The second track features the arranged soundtrack that's enabled by default on the PS1, whereas the third track features the soundtrack from the Arcade version (with the exception of the credits theme). The second YouTube stream features the original arranged soundtrack.

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night for the Sega Saturn is a port of the popular PSX game of the same name. This version features the console-exclusive character Maria, who easily blazes through the castle, proving that she's not just another damsel in distress. EZGames69 uses a combination of magic powers, kicks, glitches and luck manipulation to free the world, yet again, from Dracula's minions.

EZGames69 improved the previous movie with better optimization. The movie time appears longer due to including the BIOS sequence and generally more accurate Saturn emulation in BizHawk. Actual game-play improvements are detailed in this video.

For more glitching and monster killing, we also have Alucard and Richter's movies, both done on the PlayStation version.


There is also an alternate YouTube stream featuring audio commentary by the author.

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. The SMS version was primarily used, due to much shorter score screens.

Thanks to better strategies, The8bitbeast improved his predecessor movie by 36.43 seconds. It only appears to be a 26.08 second improvement, but the timing of the previous TAS did not include the BIOS, which loses 10.35 seconds.

Huey, Dewey, and Louie Duck enter a magical book and get captured by King Pete. Now Mickey Mouse and their uncle Donald Duck have to save them. The heroes gain access to different outfits, as in previous games in the series, but the effect of each outfit is different between the two characters. The SNES version of this game was released only in Japan; a GBA port later saw a more widespread release.

grassini controls both Mickey and Donald in this run but sometimes sacrifices one or the other for speed. The characters switch among the outfits often in order to optimize movement and defeat enemies quickly.

- Major skip glitch
- Final boss skip glitch
- Executes arbitrary code
- Heavy glitch abuse
- Corrupts memory
- Genre: Platform
This is the 5th published movie in a category of impressively fast Super Mario World TASes. It beats the game by jumping to the credits from one of the two levels available from the start, Yoshi's Island 2. This happens because a glitch involving eating a Charging Chuck allows manipulating the code being executed by the game using only controller input.

This run is 0.13 seconds faster than the previous movie thanks to better movement and a more efficient payload. Reading the submission comments for more information is highly recommended.

For more movies like this, see this list of TASes that execute arbitrary code.

In accordance with standard procedure, Samus discarded all of the items she collected on previous adventures before embarking on this one.

Super Metroid has a wide variety of time-saving glitches to exploit, many of which are explained on the Super Metroid Tricks page. Be sure to check it, as well as the author's comments, for more information on the improvements. This is an improvement of 6:28.70 over the predecessor movie.

If you prefer to watch the fastest completion without getting all the items and without any large skip glitches, check out Super Metroid in 35:58 by Sniq.


Every second encode link leads to a version where all graphics have been fixed.

The Hulk is a Marvel superhero who was created after Dr. Bruce Banner was accidentally exposed to harmful gamma radiation. In this game, the Hulk uses his incredible mutant strength and uncontrollable rage to smash his way through five levels in order to defeat The Leader and his minions.

This run saves 14 frames over the previous one via multiple small optimizations.

SNES Zelda completed in a very quick manner. The trick that is used to cut completion time by so much is holding left+up+right while entering a corridor or staircase, allowing Link to clip through the wall and walk out of bounds.

This movie is an astonishing minute faster than the preceding version thanks to a brand new glitch.
