Nitro Genesis

Hi, I'm nitrogenesis. I'm a person on this here site. I do a lot of things, moat notably TAS and I used to encode but that became too time-consuming so I had to stop. I still do temporary encodes of FBA movies, because nobody else will.

Total movies: 20

Out of This World is a strange and difficult game. It was one of only a few SNES games to use loading screens.

This run obsoletes the previous movie by 5203 frames. We recommend reading the author's comments to understand the glitches being abused.

Quoting bobucles's analysis of the game:
Oh, this game is great. I remember that at the beginning, the gun has exactly enough shots to make it past that first door. Shield, big blast, and kill the guards, then the gun runs out. Waste any, and you die. Classic.

Legend of Hero Tonma is a simple platforming game where Tommy, the main character, goes on a quest to rescue a princess. The game also has some amusing examples of awkward English in between stages.

Hammerin' Harry is a pretty simple platformer. Armed with a big hammer, you make your way through 5 levels, and the first 3 levels have bonus levels as well. At the end of each level there is a boss, and in some levels, there are also mini-bosses. In short, this game is a "normal" platformer, you won't have a hard time figuring out what's going on.

NitroGenesis improves on the previous movie by 5.72 seconds thanks to more optimized jumps and faster bossfights. For more info, we recommend reading the submission text.

- Genre: Action
Dragon Unit (also known as Castle of Dragon) is an obscure arcade game about a castle with a dragon in it. Perhaps it's not the most original sounding game; but it does have nudity, gratuitous violence, and Engrish to make up for it. The action is very fast paced, and with the help of TAS skills, the dragon master is dispatched quicker than a hard boiled egg.

We also have a movie of the NES version and a 2 player run.

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

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

Popeye 2, sequel to Popeye, is a Game Boy platformer featuring the cartoon character Popeye the Sailor. The game follows Popeye (and his punching arm) as he ruins Brutus's day, again.

Some delicate control is required to move through the levels without losing speed; in particular, watch for the precise manipulation in the underwater levels.

Baby Roo has been kidnapped by monkeys, and it's up to Mama Roo to come to the rescue! Starting out at the bottom of the screen, she must hop and climb up the various ladders and platforms to the top where Baby Roo is being held captive. The monkeys will try to stop her by throwing or dropping apples and knocking her off the platforms, but Mama can fight back. With her boxing gloves on, she can knock them out with a single punch!

Author nitrogenesis improves the previous movie by 38.21 seconds through a new glitch that makes Mama Roo fall through the ground and reappear at the top of the screen. For more information, check out the author's comments.

Super Boy II is a 1989 clone of Super Mario Bros. created by the Korean pirate company Zemina (재미나, roughly translates to "It's fun!") and is the sequel to its earlier game, Super Boy I. Besides having bad controls and graphics, this game leaves out some of the original features, including warp zones, water levels, Worlds 5-8, and even the princess.

NitroGenesis shows off this tough game in its entirety, precisely avoiding all of the enemies and reaching the ending in just under six minutes.

In this game featuring the famous SpongeBob SquarePants, SpongeBob stumbles upon a legendary statue that opens the way to the Dutchman’s Underworld. SpongeBob must unlock the statue and defeat the Flying Dutchman to get the Golden Spatula and become the Master Fry Cook.

The authors improved the previous movie by 1:19.40, because of a new route and the fact that SpongeBob has mastered the art of flying a new glitch that allows him to jump very high. In fact, with the spring shoes equipped, he can go up as high as he wants until he hits an object. For more information, check out the submission text.

This run is a collaboration between the previous two authors, CoolKirby and jlun2, and nitrogenesis, who discovered the jump glitch and made two submissions before being bested by jlun2's attempt. This run is a whopping 13.09 faster than the best attempt by a single author. Teamwork is strength!

Spyman (スパイマン) is a short platform game by independent developer Ikiki. You play as a spy, and infiltrate a facility populated with standard Bad Guys, complete with sunglasses and guns.

Despite its short length, there is quite a bit of room for neat tricks and shortcuts, most of which are detailed here.

You can also watch a TAS of another game by the same developer: Nikujin.

In this game, Julius Caesar has snatched Obelix, Asterix's best friend, and is about to feed him to lions! But before anyone can even blink, Asterix comes, kicks Julius' ass, and comes to the rescue of his friend!

Invasion of the Zombie Monsters is a B-Movie styled platformer for MSX. You take control of Ned, a geek trying to save his girlfriend from a giant demon terrorizing the city. This game was designed to be a throwback to games like Legend of Hero Tonma and Ghouls 'n Ghosts.

Ignoring the game's difficulty, the author, NitroGenesis, shreds through hordes of zombies and gets the girl in less than 5 minutes by manipulating bosses and abusing hitboxes.

You Have to Burn the Rope is a very hard game. You have to burn the rope there.

More seriously, this is a Nintendo DS port of an intentionally trivial Flash game created by the Swedish student Kian "Mazapán" Bashiri. It was created as a satire, specifically to make fun of other games that limit the player's interaction by being easy, linear, or heavily controlled and jokingly ask at which point these games also cease to be games. -Bashiri

Author nitrogenesis improves the previous run with increased precision when burning the rope.

  • A2600 Bobby Is Going Home. I managed to improve the dodge on the seventh screen by 4 frames, but I accidentally overwrote my bk2 and I can't recreate it. Plus, this game sucks too much to bother trying to redo it too much.
  • Genesis Todd's Adventures in Slime World.
  • PCE Vigilante. The first stage can be beaten 8 seconds faster with a new strat on the boss, but that throws off the manipulation for the rest of the run.
  • NES Wacky Races. x2poet barely made any effort to remove lag at all. You can remove a ton of lag is what I'm saying. But it's Wacky Races, who cares.


Anyway, thanks for visiting my page.
