Bobby is Going Home is a simple platform game developed by Bit Corporation and released in 1983. The goal of the game is to guide a boy named Bobby through diving hawks, dashing chickens, tricky pits, thorny rosebushes, and deadly sinkholes to the safety of his home.

Lobsterzelda improved the previous run via better character movement. However, this run is longer because it completes two loops of the game in order to show all of its unique content.

- Genre: Puzzle
In Boing!, you are a bubble named, with great originality, Bubble. The object here is to bounce on each of the thirty-six squares and turn them all on. You start at the bottom left. The Bubble Eater starts at the bottom right. He will chase you around the play field and if he catches you, you lose one of your lives. Pin starts at the top of a row and moves down. If you are hit by Pin, you pop and a life is lost.

KiwiCracker completes the six levels in record time.

- Genre: Sport
Miniature Golf for Atari was one of the first golf video games. The sport, a spin-off of golf, is also known as minigolf or putt-putt. The goal is normally to putt your golf ball into the cup at the other end, in as few hits as you can.

But Wipeoutjack7 and ThunderAxe31 are in a hurry, so they sacrifice their score to get their yellow square ball into the nine square purple cups as quickly as possible. While they frequently achieve hole-in-ones anyway, taking two shots turns out to be faster on some holes.

This run completes every level without dying a single time, now 0.20 seconds more quickly than the previous run. Time savings came from starting the game more quickly and better enemy manipulation in level 3-3. If you want to see this game beaten as quickly as possible, please watch this run.

One day, on your way to school you realize that a lot of obstacles appeared on the streets overnight. As a skater you feel challenged to skate over as many ramps and through as many pipes as possible while still arriving at school in time. You’ve got 5 minutes and a total of 30 obstacles to cope with.

Confuzion is a sliding-tile puzzle game in which players must explode all of the bombs in each level using a spark. The spark flows along a fuse, which is made up of a series of tiles. These tiles must be moved such that the fuse forms a path from the spark to each bomb, while also avoiding water droplets that can extinguish the spark.

nymx completes each puzzle so quickly that you'll miss it if you blink, finishing 96 levels (after which the game has no more unique challenges) in record time.

Arumana no Kiseki is an FDS-only platformer with an interesting grappling hook mechanic. Perhaps not surprisingly for a rather complicated mechanic like this one, it can be abused heavily to clip through walls and most of several levels.

Esper Dream is an action RPG for the Famicom Disk System. It stars a boy with extrasensory perception (ESP) who has been transported into a book and must save the world inside by rescuing a mayor's daughter and collecting two special items. In addition to his ESP powers, he can use projectile weapons on his quest.

This run completes the game in record time by manipulating enemy position in battles, using the weapons and ESP powers strategically, and getting a large number of esper points (EP)--necessary for using the ESP powers--via an underflow glitch.

The main quest completion time has been shortened to nearly one fourth of what it initially was, thanks to the discovery of a glitch that allows Juste to sink into walls.

This is a 2:50.86 minute improvement over the previous movie.

The author has created an elaborate encode that shows the player's position on the map, contents of the game's memory, and hacks the camera to follow the character's movement more. It is available on YouTube, NicoVideo, and Bilibili.

However, if you still think there is not enough zipping through walls, be sure to watch the second quest completed in less than half a minute!

The third game in the Megaman Zero subseries takes place two months after its predecessor. It features mostly the same game play as before, but with a different Cyber Elf system and customizable armor. Also new are the Secret Disks, which can be analyzed for information about the series, enemies, items, and the characters.

This run aims to collect all disks, all sub-tanks, and all Ex-Skills. It also gets a special rank when the final stage ends (Disk Capturer) and unlocks Ultimate Mode afterward. Geinuhayst saved 1:22.54 minutes from the previous run by using different Ex-Skills and tricks to allow faster movement and quicker boss fights. See the submission notes for details.

Joe Osugi, bizarre 'anti-terrorist ninja', is called in to assist the local police, who seem to be completely useless in rescuing some hostages.

The game is basically a series of rooms connected together. Your job is to rescue the hostages and then escape the stage through the red door. You have in your arsenal a three-level shuriken, a sword, and a grappling hook similar to the one from Bionic Commando. Joe also has two special abilities: to make himself invincible and to attack all enemies on screen.

Pokémon: Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald form the third generation of Pokémon, after Pokémon: Gold and Silver. Noticeable differences include the graphics and interface, Pokémon abilities, and running shoes that allow the player to move around much faster in the overworld before getting the bike.

This improvement of nearly 22 minutes over the previous TAS is the result of thorough research and testing by the author, merrp. A new strategy allows ending the game with only 5 badges by corrupting the memory, allowing her to execute arbitrary code. This was possible due to a switch to the Japanese version, which has a larger character set to use for the PC Box payload. For more information, see the author's comments.

We also have a run that completes the entire game without major glitches.

Mo Jie Qibing (魔戒奇兵 "Lord of the Rings") is a bootleg action game developed by Taiwanese bootleg game developer Vast Fame and released in 2003. It is a top-down shooting game in the vein of Pocky & Rocky - in fact, it even uses the engine from Kiki KaiKai Advance (known as Pocky & Rocky with Becky in the US), which Vast Fame are rumored to have obtained legitimately from its developers. This game's US release was translated as The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, but the movie scenes that appear before each stage are captured from The Fellowship of the Ring.

Players take control of their favorite The Lord of the Rings character analog (Alice, Glenda, Jerry, Shredder, or Roger), and shoot their way through 8 enemy-infested locales (such as a desert full of cacti) that bear little resemblance to any place in the source material that the game is ostensibly based on. Each world has 1 or 2 stages, and ends with a boss fight.

Watch as Mothrayas blazes through the game on hard mode with record-setting alacrity, using the fire-flinging wizard Gandalf Glenda for his slow-moving secondary projectiles that shred bosses. Both the camera and luck are manipulated in this run to get to the final encounter with Sauron (?) as quickly as possible - see the author's notes for a detailed breakdown.

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.

Set before the events of the first two NES games, the player gets to play as Christopher Belmont, one of Simon's ancestors.

Unlike most Castlevania games, there are no sub-weapons, and the player loses whip upgrades upon damage. Additionally, the Castlevania Game Boy games, unlike their NES counterparts, have ropes and moving spike walls instead of stairs.

This game, being one of the first to come out for the Game Boy, was programmed poorly, exhibiting lots of lag, and also suffers from poor jump controls. Seizing upon that, the level designers took it upon themselves to create fake difficulty by requiring pixel perfect jumps throughout.

In this movie, arukAdo improves the previous TAS by 57.68 seconds (after accounting for emulation differences), thanks to newly found tricks and better optimisation. Please read the author's comments for more details.

Note: The Konami Collection version was used instead of the original, as it lags a bit less, and is also fully colored.

Mega Man Xtreme is a port of the popular Mega Man X series to the Game Boy Color. It adapts the Mavericks and their stages from that series and wraps it into gameplay more suited for the portable console.

Here, FractalFusion & Alyosha speed through the game and exploit glitches to create a movie worthy of what we have come to expect from Mega Man at TASVideos.

This movie is about 7 seconds faster than the previous record by FractalFusion. It appears longer due to significantly more accurate emulation of the loading times in this run.

This movie is played from a save that has unlocked "Extreme mode", which allows you to play all of the levels in one game. Runs that start from a savestate are not normally allowed; see the Movie Rules for more on this.

Pokémon Silver and Gold form the second generation of Pokémon, after Pokémon Red and Blue. The main differences between the generations is that the game is now in full color, and that there are 251 Pokémon instead of 151.

This movie plays through Pokémon Silver in a fairly fast manner, catching only a half dozen Pokémon in the process, but acquiring all the gym badges, and ultimately beating the protagonist of the previous generation of Pokémon games.

The authors of this movie have written very extensive details of anything regarding this movie, including even some of the mathematical formulas used by the game. As usual, we recommend reading these comments.

However, gifvex instead decided to glitch out the first battle and confuse the game into reading deck contents as code. This allows gifvex to reach the game's credits in just under 3 minutes. For more information, see the authors' comments.

We also have a similarly short run of the sequel, Pokémon TCG2.

The Emperor's New Groove is the companion game for the Disney movie of the same name. The game takes place after Emperor Kuzco has been turned into a llama, and your goal is to guide llama-Kuzco back to his palace in order to change him back to a human. Although this is a relatively simple platformer, Kuzco's llama form requires careful attention to fully optimize movement speed.

- Uses death to save time
- Genre: Shooter
After Burst for Game Boy was released exclusively in Japan by NCS in 1990. Conceptually just a simple 2D shooter, it has three modes: Normal, 1P VS, and 2P VS.

The game features a ballistic bullet mechanic where you can charge each shot to have a higher exit velocity. Since only one player bullet can be visible at a time, the damage that can be done in any given timespan is severely limited, necessitating hitting multiple targets in one shot for best efficiency. Quite strikingly, this game is plagued by extreme lag, slowing in-game time down significantly.

This run completes the Normal mode's 30 stages in record time. We also have a run of the 1P VS mode, which has different stages.

After Burst for Game Boy was released Japan-exclusively by NCS in 1990. Conceptually just a simple 2D shooter it features three modes (normal, 1P VS, 2P VS) of which this run plays the 1P VS mode. To reach this mode's ending, 15 (instead of 30 in normal mode) single-screen stages have to be cleared (all of which are different from the ones in normal mode).

The game features a ballistic bullet mechanic where you can charge each shot to have a higher exit velocity. Since only one player bullet can be visible at a time, the damage that can be done in any given timespan is severely limited, necessitating hitting multiple targets in one shot for best efficiency.

Quite strikingly, this game is plagued by extreme lag, slowing in-game time down significantly and contributing to about 80% runtime of the entire movie (about 4 lag frames per normal frame).

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Fighting

Battletoads is a classic video game by Rare for the NES, but different versions of the game were also made for many other systems, such as the Genesis and the Game Boy. All of these games are known for their comical animation style (such as gigantic fists and boots when the toads attack) and their high difficulty, essentially requiring the player to memorize the upcoming dangers to react fast enough to survive.

In this version, the player plays as the Battletoad Zitz on a quest to rescue the other two Toads, Rash and Pimple, from the Dark Queen. This game has only 9 stages, as opposed to 12 in the NES version. However, unlike the NES version of the game, there are no warps, and there is no two-player option. There are also fewer time-saving glitches. That doesn't stop Lobsterzelda, though, from beating up tons of enemies and completing the game very quickly.

In this run, Lobsterzelda improves the predecessor movie by 1:09.46 minutes by using a new skip and tighter optimization.

For more Battletoads madness, you can also see our movies of the NES version.

Contra: The Alien Wars is the third entry in the Contra series. Like its predecessors, it is a predominantly side-scrolling shooter with a heavy emphasis on action. The protagonist can fire in eight directions when standing still. New abilities include climbing on walls, grabbing poles and navigating tanks. Parts of scenery can be destroyed. Originally released on the SNES, this version of the game was released on the Game Boy in 1994.

ThunderAxe31 makes quick work of this game, while refusing to kill any enemies. Well, he accidentally stomped on a couple of them, watched one fall into the abyss, wasn't careful enough and enabled some landmines... Some enemies even exploded by themselves. But it was never his intention, okay? It's a pacifist completion.

This version of Donkey Kong (informally known as Donkey Kong '94, due to its 1994 release date) follows the same premise as the original game from the 1980s, in that Mario is tasked with rescuing Pauline from the eponymous Donkey Kong. Besides adding over 90 additional stages to the original 4 stages, this release also introduces many new game-play mechanics which both help and hinder Mario from reaching his goal. Some of these new elements are patterned off concepts from other Mario games including Donkey Kong Jr., SMB, SMB 2 (USA), and SMB 3.

DrD2k9 throws barrels at DK and rescues Pauline in record time.

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, Tremane and Mothrayas, improved the previous movie by 1.59 seconds (disregarding the GBC bootup), thanks to better optimisation and lag reduction.

Pokémon is a phenomenon that made itself very famous in a short time a few years ago. Pokémon Blue is part of the first generation of the games of that series that were made.

Up until this day, thousands of Pokémon fans have analyzed the games, finding out the exact formulae of how each battle situation in these games works out, how experience and levels and everything works, and what are the most effective ways to battle.

The Bouncing Ball is a homebrew Gameboy game made by HuCABBAGE for the 4th annual GBJam (2015).

In this neat little platformer with no music, thus only sound effects, you are in control of a little ball, which is constantly bouncing around. Your goal is to bounce through all the 50 unique levels by collecting every heart you can find on your way.

KiwiCracker and BrunoValads improve their previous TAS by 4.1 seconds, mainly thanks to faster strategies in levels 5 and 8.

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.

This run is a 1:04.11 minute improvement over Wobmiar's previous record thanks to newly found glitches and better routing.

NFL Street 2 is the second game in the series by Electronic Arts. It features team rosters from the 2004 NFL season. As in the first game, players can accumulate style points during play, but this game adds wall moves as a new method to get the points.

"NFL Challenge" mode remains the primary mode of the game but has changed from the first game. Players have 150 days to prepare a team for a tournament against the other NFL teams, with the winner challenging the NFL Legends.

In this run, Lobsterzelda completes the "NFL Challenge" mode as quickly as possible, using the wall moves to rack up style points and manipulating the computer teams to choose plays that lead to their rapid defeat.

Lobsterzelda improves his previous record by 3:45.80 minutes due to using the hardest difficulty.

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 and open the Thousand-Year Door to save her and collect the treasure.

This latest TAS by Malleoz features a never-before-seen strategy for Teleporter Room Early, as well as a couple more glitches exclusive to the US version of the game. This necessitated the change from the Japanese version used in the previous run. In the end, nearly fourteen minutes were saved.

Author's vocal commentary during the run's video can be watched on YouTube with a detailed overlay or on Twitch.

Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones is an action-adventure video game developed and published by Ubisoft Montreal. It was released in December, 2005 in North America for the Xbox, Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 2, and the Nintendo GameCube. The Two Thrones marked the third and final chapter for The Sands of Time saga, until the release of prequel The Forgotten Sands.

The game combines exploration and combat. Both elements make use of the Prince's acrobatic capability and agility. Throughout much of the game, the player must attempt to traverse the palace by running across walls, ascending or descending chasms by jumping back and forth between walls, avoiding traps, climbing structures and jumping from platform to platform, making other types of well-timed leaps, solving puzzles and using discovered objects to progress.

The author has provided the video commentary for this TAS.

Resident Evil 4 features a completely new story and an innovative "over-the-shoulder" third person perspective that replaces the fixed camera system of the previous three Resident Evil games. Special agent Leon Kennedy is on a mission to rescue Ashley Graham, the daughter of the U.S. President, from a sinister cult in a remote rural part of Europe. Leon must fight hordes of violent villagers and mutated monsters on his way to save her.

The Mercenaries is an unlockable minigame in Resident Evil 4. It is unlocked by completing the main game regardless of difficulty. The objective is to kill enemies to earn points before the evacuation chopper arrives in the allotted time.

Ubercapitalist takes on the Waterworld level of The Mercenaries using Wesker. Major manipulation of luck and the AI, in addition to Wesker's powerful arsenal, helps Ubercapitalist achieve the maximum number of kills possible and the highest score well before the evac helicopter arrives.

Ubercapitalist has also made a TAS of the Castle map and a TAS of the Village map for The Mercenaries.

- Playaround
- Uses hardest difficulty
- Genre: Fighting
Nintendo's Super Smash Bros. fighting game series is rather different from your typical fighting game. Instead of wearing your opponent's health down to 0, you must knock him or her out of the battlefield. Damage counts upwards, with knockback from attacks that hit you becoming more severe as your damage increases. Fighting controls are also simplified, making it very easy for even your non-gaming friends to pick up and play.

Super Smash Bros. Melee offers fighters from the wealth of Nintendo characters like Mario, Bowser, different Pokémon, Link, and Kirby. They can either fight through the single-player modes like Classic, Adventure, and Event Mode, or they battle it out against other characters in a four-player frenzy.

Additional characters and stages are unlocked as hidden objectives are met, and coins rewarded for playing in all modes can be spent on a capsule toy machine. The toys in the machine represent games from Nintendo's entire video game history, and each can be viewed in 3D with a brief description.

In this TAS, Mothrayas plays through the game's Classic Mode on the hardest difficulty, aiming to defeat every opponent in the most entertaining way possible. This often leads to some surprising solutions.


Note: The encodes also feature playing through the credits sequence as well as the "Challenger Approaching" fight against Jigglypuff.

Altered Beast is originally an arcade game. In each level, the player must collect 3 powerups in order to transform into a powerful beast and fight the boss of that level. This game was one of the first games of the Sega Genesis system, and was first bundled with it.

This might look like it's an auto-scrolling game, but in fact the scroll speed depends on the number of enemies on screen. The player tries to kill all enemies as soon as possible to increase the scroll speed, using 2 characters to maximize this process.

This run is longer than its predecessor due to using the hardest 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.

In this run, Meerkov improves the previous record by 2:00.68 minutes.

A prince and princess were in love with each other until a jealous demon turned the happy couple into a set of stone paddles; resembling that of the pinball kind. Suddenly, a ball came into existence that could use the prince and princess in order to defeat the demons that now rule over the kingdom.

Devilish: The Next Possession is a sequel of the Game Gear game Devilish. It was released for the Genesis in 1992.

Players have to use two paddles; the upper one is used to defeat demons while the lower one helps to prevent the player from dropping to its demise at the bottom of the board. By defeating bad guys and smashing through breakable blocks, the player advances towards the boss of each level.

Ecco: The Tides of Time (1994) is the sequel to Ecco the Dolphin. It is harder than the original, and continues its bizarre science fiction plotline. You control Ecco the dolphin, navigating the waters, circumnavigating the time-stream, saving lost DNA nucleotide pairs, and finding key crystals, schools of fish and pockets of air deep down in submarine caves.

Ecco is capable of moving at very high speed but has little in the way of brakes. Turning corners without smashing into walls is tricky to say the least.

Upthorn improves his previous previous record by 55.13 seconds.

Phantasy Star II, released in 1989, introduces us to the anti-utopian world of Mota, now dominated by the Mother Brain computer. Rolf, a government agent, is assigned the task of finding out why Mother Brain is malfunctioning, and yet his role in the destiny of Algo is far, far greater than anyone could imagine. Anyone, save one lone Esper. As the genetic construct Nei, the soldier Rudo, and others join him, can he topple the tyranny of Mother Brain and free Algo from an unholy evil?

Rolf and his friends, tired of all the violence they've seen, decide to take a pacifist route to save the Algol system with zero bloodshed. This run improves the author's previous run by 13.31 seconds by saving a trip to the armor shop and instead injecting the Carbonsuit (the item that triggers the ending) into inventory at the storage building. For more details, see the author's notes. For more details on the main ideas behind the glitches in this run, read the older run's submission notes.

One thing leads to another and he and the rest of his party eventually find themselves fighting the root of all evil.

No reason to rush things though, right? In addition to completing all sidequests, the author also uncovers every single reference to Phantasy Star Universe.

This run is 2:28.42 minutes faster than the previous record.

In Sonic 3 & Knuckles, Sonic and Tails continue to thwart the plans of Dr. Robotnik, this time on the Floating Island that is guarded by Knuckles the Echidna.

This run is longer than the predecessor movie in movie length due to using Sonic only, but has a shorter in-game time.

We also have similar movies in Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and Sonic the Hedgehog CD.

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


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

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.

Watch as Winslinator improves on his previous by 8 frames whilst using both controllers and a major skip to retrieve the Crown of Kings in record time.

Advanced Dungeons & Dragons: Treasure of Tarmin was the second licensed AD&D videogame on the Intellivision. The gameplay involves exploring a series of randomly generated mazes searching for weapons, armor, treasures, and magical items to battle a wide variety of monsters RPG-style. The game was released in 1982, meaning the 3D dungeon crawler perspective was very innovative for its time.

In this run, Winslinator uses an absurd amount of luck manipulation to breeze through the 12 chambers, defeat the Minotaur, and collect the Tarmin Treasure in under a minute. It improves upon the previous run by 7.61 seconds, thanks to a completely reworked route that features better movement optimization, collects the Teleport book earlier, and forgoes collecting the Midas book!

Due to how fast the levels are solved, the second set of encodes show them slowed down to 16.7% of the normal speed, with everything else at normal speed.

If you're interested in playing it, though, we strongly recommend you play it first before watching the TAS, as it evidently spoils the solutions to the puzzles.

Undertale is an RPG video game created by American indie developer Toby Fox in 2015.

The player controls a child who has fallen into the Underground: a large, secluded region under the surface of the Earth, separated by a magic barrier. The player meets various monsters during the journey back to the surface. Some monsters might engage the player in a fight. The combat system involves the player navigating through mini-bullet hell attacks by the opponent. They can opt to pacify or subdue monsters in order to spare them instead of killing them. These choices affect the game, with the dialogue, characters, and story changing based on outcomes.

There are 3 main endings: Neutral, True Pacifist, and Genocide. This TAS achieves the Genocide ending, which is known for being the most RNG-intensive category in the game due to the heavy emphasis on combat; the player must kill a specific amount of enemies in each area in order to not lock themselves out of this ending.

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.


This run is a 50.76 second improvement over RingRush's previous movie.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater is the first game in a now extensive series of 10+ games that are still being created and released to this day. It was first released for the PlayStation in September 1999, and later ported to the Nintendo 64 and Sega Dreamcast. "Primitive" by today's Tony Hawk control standards, it utilizes flip tricks, grab tricks, grinds, and special tricks, which can be done on street ramps, vert ramps, rails, and all sorts of other objects.

This TAS is over twice as short as the other run. This is because it abuses a replay glitch that allows transferring skate goals from one level to another. This means you can complete the entire game without going beyond the first level.

Dragons of Flame is the sequel that was promised in the credits of the infamous AD&D: Heroes of the Lance. While the game was better received than its predecessor, it was still limited to a Famicom release on Nintendo systems.

The game follows the party from Heroes of the Lance after they recovered the discs of Mishakal, until they slay the 'Dragon Highlord of the North', Lord Verminaard. The gameplay can best be described as a poor man's version of Zelda II for the NES.

Adventures of Lolo (1989) was the first game of the Eggerland series that received a Western release. Interestingly, the series was developed by HAL Laboratory, who also created the Kirby series, and Eggerland protagonists Lolo and Lala make cameo appearances in Kirby games as Lololo and Lalala.

The goal of the game is to collect all of the hearts in every stage and then get the ball from the chest to open the door to the next room. Though it may seem simplistic, it remains a truly well-made puzzle. Finding optimal solutions to most of the rooms has proven to be a very nontrivial task, and every once in a while a new improvement is found.

Alter Ego is an NES homebrew port of a ZX Spectrum puzzle game of the same name. You control a character who can switch places with his shadow a limited number of times in each stage. The goal is to collect all the items without touching any enemies. To further complicate matters, the blue-outlined items can only be collected by the shadow, whereas the pink-outlined items can only be collected by the main player.

This hardly stops aiqiyou, though, who barely avoids death in a number of puzzles and finishes in record time, while also improving the previous movie by 5.44 seconds.

Angry Birds is a series of games in which players use a slingshot to launch birds at pigs. This NES version, as opposed to the version developed by Nice Code, is a bootleg made by an unknown developer. This one is notable for having all of the music and background noise and most of the sound effects stored as DPCM samples.

ThunderAxe31 plays through all of the levels in record time.

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.

This is an improvement of 29.60 seconds compared to the predecessor movie

Battletoads (1991) is a futuristic beat 'em up known for its graphics and extreme difficulty. The story is that the sexy Dark Queen who wants to rule the universe has kidnapped Princess Angelica and a toad named Pimple. Two other toads, Rash and Zitz, attempt to rescue them and defeat the Dark Queen.

This run has two players and does not use warps.

As always, a bug on level 11 prevents player 2 from moving, so he gets a game over for that level. Player 1 plays level 11 alone and player 2 comes back for level 12. This is a bug in Battletoads itself.

Lobsterzelda improves the previous movie by 11.09 seconds.

Castlevania III: Dracula's Curse 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 this run, scrimpeh beats the predecessor movie by 52.59 seconds through new tricks and better strategies.

Dragon Warrior is an epic RPG series which now spans 11 games across many systems. The second game greatly expands on the first to include a party of three heroes (all descendents of Erdrick and the hero of DW1) and battles that may include many enemies.
The world is much bigger and there are many big dungeons to explore as well. Luckily there are new abilities and items to make this easier. Enemies can randomly drop items when defeated and there is a lottery which is the precursor to the casinos which appear in each later DW game.

Later in the game he also grows a pair of wings and flies. In doing so, he strongly defies laws of physics, common sense, and notions of subtle Kid Icarus mockery.

This new version of Karnov TAS by Arc is a 19.58 second improvement over the previous movie by adelikat. Improvements come from better resource planning, routing changes, and optimization.

King Kong is out to rescue his girl from a fortress that is impenetrable without eight keys from other fortresses. Luckily, that turned out to be false once tools were added to the mix.

Baddap1 improves the previous TAS by 2.76 seconds, thanks to a faster third warp and better optimisation.

Once you get past McDonald's blatant advertising and the fact that this game is about Ronald the clown, this game is actually quite good. The controls are a bit slippery but the level design more than makes up for it.

In this particular movie the author collects only the cards that are necessary to complete the game. If you want to see all the cards collected and the secret levels played, check the other movie of this game.

Jules improves the previous TAS by 12.43 seconds, thanks to better optimisation and resource management.
