Sonic 1 Return to the Origin is a great hack of Sonic 1 by carretero. In this hack, you play through every level of sonic 1 from the end to the beginning (excepting final zone, which is played regularly). Naturally, this is a great change of pace for a sonic speedrunner, and a level system worthy of speedrunning. With that frame of mind, I set off to do my first ever tool assisted speedrun on this game. It is a work in progress, so expect better later.
A tool assisted speedrun is a speedrun which attempts to show a game pushed entirely to its limits. The game is played on a an emulator, with lowdown and savestates, until a perfect input is devised, beating the entire game as quickly as possible. This is my first ever tas, and is extremely unoptimized. As such, I plan on re-tasing the game at a later date, in the hopes of getting under 14 minutes. However, for a first tas, this is (in my opinion), fairly well done.

Points of Interest:
Green Hill 1 - when they start to get up and jump to the ramp go right on with great speed Green Hill 3 - At the springboard from which you push backward (osea forward as this version is the other way around) takes you down and you hit the jump button as fast.
Spring Yard 2 - if you're coming by passing a ramp where you jump and go fast
Labyrinth 3 - since you will start to lose quickly and thus is: First when you start grab 1 or 2 rings Finally when these invincible for a few seconds you quickly strips where the arrows are pointed staying quiet
Scrap Brain 1 & 2 - My Favorite stage
enjoy the run!

This seems more like it's a run that should be discussed in the game forums as a WIP before being submitted to the Workbench.
Used to be a frequent submissions commenter. My new computer has had some issues running emulators, so I've been here more sporadically. Still haven't gotten around to actually TASing yet... I was going to improve Kid Dracula for GB. It seems I was beaten to it, though, with a recent awesome run by Hetfield90 and StarvinStruthers. (http://tasvideos.org/2928M.html.) Thanks to goofydylan8 for running Gargoyle's Quest 2 because I mentioned the game! (http://tasvideos.org/2001M.html) Thanks to feos and MESHUGGAH for taking up runs of Duck Tales 2 because of my old signature! Thanks also to Samsara for finishing a Treasure Master run. From the submission comments:
Shoutouts and thanks to mklip2001 for arguably being the nicest and most supportive person on the forums.
