Scepheo

Hello person,

I am Scepheo. I am a judge, which means I am one of the people who look at submitted runs, see if they follow site rules and guidelines and decide on their publication tier. I also contribute to BizHawk and Hourglass-Resurrection and, on the rare occasions that I have both time and motivation for it, make TASes. For more details on what I do and have done, see the tabs below.

Myst is the epic puzzle game whose puzzles will take you hours to solve. Unless, of course, you know the answer. Although you'll encounter many brainmelting puzzles when normally playing through Myst, all the game really requires you to do is flip the eight switches around the island, get the blank page and bring it to Atrus.

One of the hardest things about this is the fireplace code which must be obtained in order to get access to Atrus. However, this being a TAS, the code is known and is entered in the most entertaining fashion the author could think of.

This game is about two bumbling idiots fighting over the fate of the earth: Daffy Duck, savior of mankind, and Marvin the Martian, hero of Mars.

In this TAS, Scepheo & MUGG helps Daffy Duck fight Marvin by leading him through the parallel galaxy of Glitch-on, cutting Marvin off before he can reach Earth in only two minutes! If you're looking for a glitch festival, you'll definitely want to watch this movie!

If you're looking for more Duck Dodgers action, see the run of the SNES version.

Metal Force is an unlicensed game developed by Open Corp. (who also made Buzz and Waldog) and released in 1994 in South Korea. It is of surprisingly solid quality for an unlicensed title. It controls similarly to classic Mega Man games, except you have two different weapons which you can switch between and upgrade by collecting powerups from enemies. Aside from that, it is a linear adventure comprised of 7 missions, with a boss battle at the end of each. The stages of each mission are quite expansive and packed with enemies and obstacles.

This game was run as part of TASVideos' Dream Team Contest 5, and this TAS was built on a combination of multiple submissions of said contest - hence the high number of authors.

In this TAS, the authors make expansive use of the weapons and the various boosts in order to beat the game in 13 minutes and 9.6 seconds.

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.

In this run, Scepheo blazes to the ending in less than 9 minutes (7:55 according to the in-game timer), skips the fearsome Gravitron, and rescues the crew in a fraction of the length of the ship's regulated lunch break. Scepheo also improves Masterjun's previous run by over 4 and a half minutes through a new route and a new glitch that allows the captain to be flung out of a teleporter into a wall. For more information, see the author's comments.

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.
