Super Gothic Brothers is a Super Mario Bros. 1 ROM Hack created by partyghoul2000. Some differences would be:

  • It has a slight increase in difficulty from its original levels.
  • It stars Bob and Steve as the protagonists rather than Mario and Luigi. They're on a quest to save their "bitch" (as the game implies after they save a toad) instead of their princess.
  • Pretty much every overworld level has been set to the nighttime background (except for 3-1 to 3-3) to show how the hack is indeed gothic.

The hack was scarcely known at the time it gets uploaded, and until this day, the hack still doesn't get recognition today. In fact, there were only about two videos showcasing the hack, none of which even finished it, even though it is possible. This TAS shows how in just under 4 minutes and 55 seconds.

Here is where you can get the IPS patch for the ROM Hack.

I apologize for double-uploading. There was a 2-frame improvement in World 8-4 that I overlooked.
While it’s (possibly) not a popular goal, Super Mario Bros. actually can be completed without collecting any coins. My run aims to do so in record time.

This is also an improvement of 0.81 seconds over the previous TAS by MarioUniverseZone mostly due to a faster strategy of entering World 1-1’s underground bonus room. Some of the improvement was also from despawning the Piranha Plant in World 8-4’s second room.

After finishing up my warped STAGEO TAS (Click here for info about the code), I thought about doing a warpless version of that after to see how things would go.

It was harder than I expected it to be, however.

I had to sacrifice entertainment for lag reduction a lot of times. Sometimes, the entertainment was also lost for finding better strategies around the enemies and obstacles.

Also, as the enemies’ physics have changed, I couldn’t perform as many glitches as in the game without the code: Bullet Bill glitch, Cheep Cheep glitch, etc.

Hopefully, this is still a good run overall. Please contact me if you find problems with this run.

I might not be good with entertainment, either. This is my first upload of a TAS that goes for a full-length game without warps.

#49020348585414264 - Super Mario Bros. “10 Walljumps”

Quoting speedrun.com rules:
Must be actual walljumps. Jumping inside a wall and hitting the block directly above you does not count as a walljump. Cramming yourself between a wall and the edge of the screen and jumping from there also does not count as a walljump.
Here is a TAS of Super Mario Bros. that doesn’t actually complete the game, but instead performs 10 walljumps as quickly as possible.

In this category, players must catch the wall and jump off of it 10 times in total. Most of the time, players would be able to perform those walljumps in World 1-1’s underground bonus room.

I perform those walljumps in World 1-1’s first pit, which seems to be a suitable place to perform as many walljumps as a TASer would like in record time. The reason why is because the gaps between the walls are 2 blocks wide, meaning I can perform a walljump by pressing A for one frame.

This is also my first uploaded TAS that doesn’t complete the actual game but instead aims for another goal.

Quoting U1:
The young man is a traveler.

His two companions are two.

Burning fireball that can be released by placing wishes on plants.

Promises far far apart imposed on those with “power.”

Parallel Air is a Super Mario Bros. 1 ROM hack that differs from the easier Air and the harder Air 2, all hacks of which are created by U1. (Click here to download the IPS patch for Parallel Air)

Parallel Air is easier than Air 2 because it still retains its midair jump cheat. It also has 3 levels, each with separate rooms, which are remixes of levels from the original Air. Besides the fact that Parallel Air doesn't mark where the hidden blocks are, it is harder than the original Air because some of the rooms have changed their designs to be more difficult.

This is an improvement of 2.53 seconds over my original run that was uploaded on YouTube back in July 2017.

This is a TAS of Summer, a cryptic and difficult Super Mario Bros. 1 ROM hack created by Mana in 2002. (Click here to download the IPS patch)

This hack may not be notable for being complex, but it requires a vast amount of skill and will sometimes force players to use glitches against their will.

I chose to upload this run to the userfiles because it beats 티어’s (Chatterbox) existing run by 20.07 seconds due to better strategies and equally improved optimization.

This is also my first time uploading a TAS of an unofficial hack of Super Mario Bros. for the NES. I did not have a clue of where to upload unofficial ROM hacks of Super Mario Bros., so I decided to upload it here. Is this okay? Opinions are always appreciated, but please do not criticize me.

This is my first time uploading a movie to the userfiles. Please let me know how I did so I can improve it!

About the movie: This TAS beats the game with the STAGEO game genie code which causes enemies to throw hammers around. This TAS also beats 티어’s (Chatterbox) TAS (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rA5JvK1ZjOg) by 2.23 seconds due to not taking the power-ups. Because of that, however, I had to lose some time enduring through new strategies but otherwise managed to keep the improvement.
