I don't have it in me to watch 3 hours of Columns straight, but I do loove this kind of thing. It's hypnotic to watch TAS-perfect scoring, and it'd make for good background noise.

I was interested in watching a TAS of Columns 1, despite the game being "infinite". Thank you for this! I have strong doubts your run is optimized. The beginning looks great, but after some time into the game you stop building complicated combos and pretty much just keep playing as is, hoping for easy column sequences to come. The stack of columns is predefined. It doesn't depend on RNG or some timer. You could just place 20 blocks, note them down, rewind the movie and plan how to build a good combo. What's the point of having Player 2? Just to have your moves mirrored?
TASing is like making a film: only the best takes are shown in the final movie.

Hmm What the estetic of watching mirror reflection game process? It's ritoric question. May be next time you should try story mode or boss mode. I can't remember this game variants Meh
