The US civil war was between the north and south, over the issue of slavery. The north wanted slavery abolished, and the south wanted to keep it. It was the bloodiest conflict on US soil ever, lasting 4 years and with over 600,000 deaths. North & South, meanwhile, is a NES game based on the war.

Game objectives

  • Plays back on: FCEUX 2.1.5
  • Emulator originally used: FCEU 0.98.16
  • Plays as North, because they won the real war
  • No deaths
  • Aims for fastest time


The North's armies are combined in the first move so they don't have to move as far. There are other battlefields than the bridge-and-river seen here, but it just so happens that the battlefields which can be reached quickly follow this design.

Other comments

Battlefields can't be luck-manipulated, but an equally fast path that shows other types of battlefields would be interesting. Improvements of a few frames may be possible, but I doubt anything major could be done. Screenshot suggestion: Frame 4580

adelikat: Bad game for TASing, at least as presented by this submission. Rejecting.
