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.

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.

Princess Rescue is a homebrew game that's inspired by the Super Mario series, even following the same general storyline (a princess gets kidnapped by a big, evil, spiked turtle). A look-alike of a famous plumber must save her from its clutches.

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.

This time, mtbRc fully completes every single map (amounting to 1000% in total, and is therefore considered full completion), defeats all bosses and completes the game in record time.

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.

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.

Super Mario Advance 4: Super Mario Bros 3 is a platform video game developed and published by Nintendo for the Game Boy Advance. It is an enhanced remake of the Nintendo Entertainment System video game Super Mario Bros. 3, and is based on the remake found in Super Mario All-Stars for the Super NES.

It contains several enhancements, including the addition of Mario and Luigi's voices by Charles Martinet, a multiplayer mode based on the original arcade game Mario Bros and the ability to scan e-Cards, utilizing two Game Boy Advances, the e-Reader, and a copy of Super Mario Advance 4. Once a card is scanned, it adds certain content to the game.

EZGames69 and GoddessMaria use warp whistles to beat the game in record time.

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.

Fushigi no Dungeon - Fuurai no Shiren GB - Tsukikage Mura no Kaibutsu, translated as Mystery Dungeon - Shiren the Wanderer - The Monsters of Moonlight Village, is an entry in the Mystery Dungeon series of roguelike games. The game follows Shiren The Wanderer, and his talking weasel Koppa.

Rather than go on an adventure with Shiren, CasualPokePlayer instead abuses input handling programming errors to execute arbitrary code and jump straight to the credits roll, which lasts longer than the actual gameplay of this run.

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.

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.

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.

Mickey's Dangerous Chase is a simple platformer for the GameBoy. You can play as either Mickey or Minnie and the goal is to get back a present that Pete stole. The character can walk, jump, and pickup blocks and throw them. It heavily resembles Chip 'n Dale: Rescue Rangers for the NES except with some autoscrollers with vehicles.

This run is 174 frames faster than the previous movie. The time appears longer due to more accurate loading emulation.

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.

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

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

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.

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).

jlun2 improves the previous TAS by 7.74 seconds, thanks to decreasing the downtime between shots by changing their aim.

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.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Fighting
- Genre: Platform
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.

This Konami-"disowned" Castlevania title follows the earliest Belmont, Sonia, as she attempts to thwart Dracula for the first time. We also meet his son Alucard for the first time.

strizer86 breezes through the game by whipping enemies, climbing ropes strangely, and screenwrapping around Dracula's castle. The author beats the previous run by 1:53.92 minutes, owing to careful lag management, judicious use of Burning Mode, and a variety of new tricks.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

In this final installment of the famous Phantasy Star series, the protagonist, while out on a routine assignment, uncovers evidence pointing to a sinister threat to the entire solar system. 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.

If you're itching for more Advanced Dungeons & Dragons we also have a run for the second title Treasure of Tarmin.

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!

Baba Is You is a puzzle game. Baba moves tiles around his world that define how the world works. The text "Baba Is You" means you are controlling Baba. If that becomes "Wall Is You", suddenly you are controlling all of the walls.

lexikiq finishes the game in record time.


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.

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.

Everyone knows Freddy Krueger, who turns the peaceful dreams of people living on Elm Street into lethal nightmares. In this game, the teenager(s) must stay awake and combat Freddy's various forms while collecting his scattered bones so that they can be incinerated.

Samsara improves the previous movie by a minute and a half through better movement, lag reduction, and a new trick that skips several boss refights.

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.

This run is done with a patched ROM that allows all 6 levels to be played without invoking rare glitches. Here's the run of the original ROM that uses the mapper register glitch to start from level 5.

illayaya saved 3.29 seconds over the previous run by using a warp in the third level.

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

On this site, we make perfect movies, and then we surpass them. Of course, if we can surpass them, they were not perfect in the first place, but who would have known?

When "perfection" is defined as "as fast as possible", it requires some sacrifices. Indeed, this movie sacrifices a lot in the playability of the game. Full of tricks to pass through walls, tricks to avoid mandatory battles, tricks to pass through enemies relatively unharmed, tricks to acquire weapon refills in little time — there is very little in this movie left that resembles normal playing. Even death is used as a viable playing strategy that saves time. All of the tricks are still performed by the means of mere controller input, even though significant portions of the input were calculated by a computer program.

This movie improves the previous movie by a tremendous 2 minutes and 37.99 seconds, thanks to a new route and better optimisation. Please read the authors' comments for more details.

Of course, upon watching this movie, one does have to question something... is it Mega Man saving the world? Or Dr. Wily trying to save it from absolute destruction?


The second set of encodes leads to a version where the graphics have been fixed.

Mega Man 4 Voyage is an extensive hack of the original NES game, featuring changes to level design, music, graphics, weapons, enemies, and bosses. The basic "run, jump and shoot" Mega Man mechanic remains intact, and the hack's authors write that it "should be suitable for veterans and casual players alike."

Overlord is a real-time strategic warfare game where the player must manage large standing armies, economic capital, and political stability throughout a number of extra-dimensional star systems.

As the dictatorial ruler of the Epsilon Galaxy, the player has obtained complete, indisputable authority. However, during a scientific experiment in hyperdrive technology, Epsilon scientists discovered four "buffer" dimensions, each containing a number of barren planets that exist between the Epsilon Galaxy and another alien dimension. Unfortunately, the most powerful empires from these alternate dimensions have also just discovered these zones through their own experiments. The player must battle these alien species for control of these buffer worlds, to ensure that their rule in the Epsilon Galaxy remains intact.

FatRatKnight and link_7777 complete the game on the hardest difficulty in record time.

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

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

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

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

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

Spikestuff improve the predecessor movie by 5.54 seconds.

- Genre: Adventure
Who Framed Roger Rabbit is an action-adventure video game created for the NES by Rare in 1989. The game loosely follows the movie as the player wanders around Hollywood collecting items and figuring out Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

Arc improves the previous TAS by 1 minute and 20.17 seconds, thanks to tremendous luck manipulation to spawn the right items at the right place as early as possible, as well as better optimisation. Please read the author's comments for more details.

Zelda II: The Adventure of Link is quite different from most of the early games in the Legend of Zelda series. It combines an overworld view with side-scrolling platform stages. In addition, the character can gain experience and levels, visit towns, and earn spells and items which are needed to proceed.

However, the game also has a large glitch which produces massive speed when both Left and Right are pressed at the same time; due to the use of this and other glitches, most of this run features Link racing across Hyrule so fast that the screen can't keep up, and inexplicably warping between places that shouldn't be connected. Only a few items and one spell are collected, and the only enemy ever fought is the final boss. Luckily, he takes the same amount of damage no matter what level attack you have.

In this run, EZGames69 improves on the previous efforts by 0.03 seconds (2 frames), thanks to an earlier first hit in fight against Dark Link.

We also have a run that completes the six palaces without using the Left + Right glitch to turn the game into a barely comprehensible mess (but does allow the use of glitched warps) and another run that disallows both the Left + Right glitch and the use of glitched warps.

- Genre: Puzzle
Released in 2000 exclusively in Japan for the ill-fated Neo Geo Pocket Color, Delta Warp was doomed to obscurity since its inception. It was the sole game developed by IOSYS inc.

The goal of Delta Warp is to gather all the 'Delta Power units' in each stage as quickly as possible. To do this, you must navigate your 'Delta' around the stage, changing its colour between white and black to match the colour of the Delta Power unit. Moving across the stage with the joystick will cause the Delta's colour to alternate with each space. However, pressing A or B will rotate the player-unit around the diamond patterns that make up the stage without the colour changing. The complexity of the levels gradually increases with the introduction of new mechanics such as multi-floor stages and special tiles that change the properties of the Delta.

In this third game of the popular PC Engine/TurboGrafx-16 platforming series, King Drool steals the top half of the moon. Bonk, the caveman with the giant head, sets out to retrieve the lunar hemisphere. This game features candy power-ups that allow Bonk to shrink or grow.

- Takes damage to save time
- Genre: Platform
Based on Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland novels, Fushigi no Yume no Alice (不思議の夢のアリス) (unofficial English title: Alice in Wonderdream) is a cute 2-D platformer which casts you as Alice, a blond-haired girl wearing a pink dress. Your job is to make your way through forests and caves, defeating enemies that you come across by either jumping on their heads or shouting 'IYA' at them.

EZGames69 completes the game in record time.
