You're trapped! Your disabled nuclear submarine, resting perilously on an undersea ledge, has begun taking on water. With time running out for you and your crew – and with your onboard torpedoes shaken loose by an eerie current from deep under the sea floor – it's up to you alone whether you sink or swim!
The objective of Airlock is to retrieve the hatch keys and make your way to the next level before your compartment floods. But at the same time you must avoid the torpedoes that have been shaken loose and which, when they cross your path, rob you of precious time.

Chase the Chuck Wagon is a promotional video game that was created to advertise the Purina company's Chuck Wagon brand of dog food. It's based off the premise in the commercials made during the 1970s for the dog food, where a dog would chase a miniature chuckwagon that served as the spirit of the dog food itself. The game adapts this premise by having you help the dog navigate a maze to get to the chuckwagon while avoiding obstacles such as a dog catcher and what appears to be a partially intangible dog totem. The game was only available through mail order from the Purina company itself, and any unshipped cartridges were ultimately destroyed by Purina themselves, making it a particularly rare game.
MrTASer here decides to help the dog get to the chuckwagon by playing all the unique levels the game offers as fast as possible.

In Dodge 'Em (1980), you control a race car on a four lane track, and your goal is to collect all of the dots in order to earn points and advance to the next level. The race track is divided into four quadrants with a break in the lanes between them, and you can change lanes only within these breaks. A second car will travel in the opposite direction and try to get into your lane and crash you, so you need to make sure you switch to any lane it isn't in! You can travel at two different speeds (fast and slow) and even have a second player control the enemy car.

Entirely unrelated to the TV series seaQuest DSV, Seaquest is a submarine combat game in which you control a water vessel and must pick up divers at different levels of depth while avoiding fish and enemy subs. While most of the game takes place underwater, you also must resurface for air from time to time so your air meter doesn't run out.
Like Tetris, the game ends when the score reaches the maximum 999999. Watch as Lobsterzelda torpedoes 90 levels-worth of submarines and rescues as many divers in record time.
This movie is actually 15:22.17 minutes slower than the movie it obsoletes, but does not use emulation glitches as the previous movie does to quickly reach maximum score.

Tomarc the Barbarian is an action game where Tomarc the Barbarian must rescue Senta from a cave she got herself lost in. Senta also managed to get herself kidnapped and is imprisoned in a cage that can be opened by Tomarc's sword. Unfortunately, Tomarc lost his sword in the same cave, so he must now find his sword and rescue Senta before the cave bats eat her alive. Special to this Atari 2600 is the ability to switch between two characters to control, Tomarc and Senta, and both characters continue to be affected by their environments even when you're not controlling them. While Tomarc is used to find the sword to rescue Senta, Senta herself is controlled to fend off the bats that are trying to kill her.
DrD2k9 decides not to go through all that trouble in this run by using a good amount of RNG manipulation to get a cave layout that requires the least amount of movement needed and controlling only Tormac to get the sword and rescue Senta as fast as possible.

Warlords for the Atari 2600 is best described as a competitive multiplayer version of Breakout. Each player has a tiny hitbox defended by a wall that chips away with each hit from a bouncing ball and a shield to defend the wall with. A player earns a point each round when every other player's hitbox has been eliminated. The first one to five points wins the game.
As it turns out, at the highest difficulty, you can actually win the game without even moving the shield at all. ShesChardcore takes advantage of this and provides only a quarter of a second of input time, most of it just selecting the game with the hardest difficulty.

Jungle Hunt is an arcade game produced and released by Taito in 1982. The original version of the game, Jungle King, was the subject of a lawsuit levied against Taito by the estate of Edgar Rice Burroughs for copyright infringement for using a likeness of the Tarzan character. Jungle King featured a long-haired feral man in a fur loincloth swinging from vine to vine in the jungle, and most damning of all, an unauthorized reproduction of actor Johnny Weissmuller's famous Tarzan yell. As a result, the hero of the game was replaced with a stereotypical Victorian era "gentleman explorer", the vines were changed to ropes, and the Tarzan yell was replaced with a short tune. On a technical note, Jungle Hunt is one of the first games to feature parallax scrolling. And the music has a rousing jungle beat! Jungle Hunt was later adapted for the various home gaming platforms of the day, including the Commodore 64 (of which we have a TAS of) and the Atari 2600.

Osman is a arcade game in the spirit of Strider. It's a very obscure and underrated arcade game, which didn't see much of the light of day, thanks to various issues with the hardware... and the fact that the game is unforgivingly hard. The game never once lets you breathe, and in unassisted play, there are a lot of things to manage at the same time. This, along with the 3 health you start out with, can make clearing with just a single credit a nightmare.
The game mostly revolves along Osman and his power: he has the power to make clones of himself when he attacks that stay for a varying amount of time and reproduce the attack he just did.
This run is an improvement of 21.95 seconds over the previous one by the same author. Note that the real time of this run is 5:25.2 - The extra 1:11.57 is because the author puts his initials in the high score table after the credits roll.

You control a shinobi, Joe Musashi, who must battle his way through each level in search of hostages which must be rescued. You have shurikens, kicks and punches to defend yourself with, as well as powerful ninja magic which can clear the screen of enemies in one go.
Each level is broken down into smaller scenes, and hostages are guarded by big blokes who throw swords. Watch out for gun-toting enemy henchmen and ninjas. Reaching the end of each level will find you battling it out with a boss. These range from 8ft tall giants to helicopter gunships.

This is a game based on the completely "unique" concept of an evil boss trying to take over/destroy/do whatever with the world, and despite the Earth being filled with about 7 billion occupants, you are the only one who can stop it.
At first glance it may seem odd that, although the game is two player, only one player is used, and that's Player 2. Player 2 was chosen because her aerial attack gives an enormous speed boost. It is also one of the few attacks in video games that operates on frame precision, so smashing out a 30Hz rapid-fire on the controller will lay the beatdown pretty quickly.
That, combined with the fact that half the enemies in this game are of the standard "walk around and shoot" variety, allow the heroine to zip through the game with total reckless abandon. Few games allow a TASer to do that, so this is a rare opportunity indeed.
The game is eerily similar to Mega Man 7 and Mega Man X. It even has pick-throwing miners.
This is a 24 second improvement over the previous movie by the use of some new tricks. These are explained in the author's comments.

This run by BrunoVisnadi completes all 10 stages in under three and a half minutes with carefully planned routes and some close calls with enemies.

Venture is an action-adventure game where a treasure hunter named Winky goes into dungeons to find treasure. The goal is to get all of the treasure in each level while fighting and dodging monsters. Stay in a room too long, and a big monster called the Hallmonster will chase down Winky and try to kill him.
In a TAS, due to a version-exclusive delay when changing direction inside rooms, the order of rooms visited is important, and changes to Winky's facing angle must be minimized to save time.
In this run, nymx plays the game on the hardest difficulty and collects every treasure in record time.

Formerly known as Halloween Harry, Alien Carnage follows our hero Harry as he single-handedly fights off an invasion of aliens intent on zombifying the populace while rescuing a large number of hostages they have taken. It is fast-paced at the general expense of control quality.
The original creators, John Passfield and Apogee Software, generously released the game as freeware in 2007 and it can be downloaded from here.
This run by Ilari plays through all four "missions" (episodes) back-to-back, as playing through the first three missions is required to unlock the fourth.

Avoid the Noid is a platform computer game for the Commodore 64 and MS-DOS, written in 1989 to promote Domino's Pizza. It was modeled after the company's ad campaign during the late 1980s. The ads featured a "noid" that destroyed pizzas and must be avoided.
The protagonist must traverse a 30-story building and deliver the pizza within 30 minutes. Colorful rabbits armed with booby traps, phone bombs, rocket launchers and bomber planes that drop water balloons seek to prevent the delivery.
Partners in crime turska & Ilari deliver the pizza in a record-breaking 03:33.52, or 7:42.00 according to the ingame clock. For details on how they did it, read the authors' commentary.
