Adventure is a first-party game released in 1979 for the Atari 2600. The goal of the game is to find the enchanted chalice and return it to the gold castle while avoiding the three dragons guarding it. It was the first action-adventure game, and also the first game to have an inventory, a continue system, and a widely-known Easter egg.
The game has three skill levels: Skill Level 1 has a small and straightforward map, Skill Level 2 has a bigger map and more elements such as a bat that flies around and takes stuff that it touches, and Skill Level 3 is basically Skill Level 2 but under a randomizer.
ShesChardcore plays Skill Level 3 and manipulates both the randomizer to get the best map and the bat to juggle items and deliver the chalice to the gold castle while the player character sits outside the castle gate and gets eaten by a dragon.

E.T. The Extra-terrestial, based on the film of the same name, is one of the worst video games ever released. It contributed to Atari's massive financial losses during 1983 and 1984.

The game was developed in five weeks and Atari decided to skip audience testing for the product due to time limitations.

From Wikipedia:
The player(s) takes control of the DC Comics character Superman, who must repair the bridge destroyed by Lex Luthor, capture Luthor and his criminal underlings, enter a phonebooth to turn back into Clark Kent, then return to the Daily Planet in the shortest amount of time. To slow Superman's progress, Kryptonite has been released by Luthor. If hit by Kryptonite, Superman loses his abilities to capture criminals and fly. To regain them, he must find and kiss Lois Lane.
This is a 30 frame improvement over the previous run, thanks to a faster change of crossing over to the next screen instead and initiating the pause demo glitch to warp to the end. That is all.

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.

This is Metroid II: Return of Samus completed with all the items collected. Being truthful to the original Metroid values, the game holds many items cleverly hidden, so finding all of them is not an easy task.
That being said, Metroid II doesn't keep track of the collected items' percentage. Moreover, the game has two excessive Energy tanks and an additional copy of each beam. It's been agreed that the author should take all the E-tanks, and at least one copy of each beam. However, due to the apparent linearity of this game, collecting so many additional items doesn't make the movie dramatically slower.
This movie is nearly 6 minutes faster than Alter's previous movie due to better precision, faster Metroid fights, and missile planning.
Note: This movie does not use secret worlds, also known as "select glitch".

Published on 8/13/2008
Selected words from the author:
"After parsing through the user's manual for her Power Suit, Samus discovered that the Chozo have endowed it with the power to interact with the fabric of reality immediately surrounding the planet SR-388 by simply switching between her beam and her missiles. What luck that she should receive an assignment to go to that planet!"
This run extensively glitches the game to the point where Samus moves to rooms that are glitched and/or weren't there before. Viewers are advised that this run may induce feelings of confusion and disorientation.

Nevertheless, there exists an interesting storyline: The kingdom of Rolan has been invaded by the forces of some evil being called Barius. However, in this movie the final boss is never actually seen. Instead of meeting Barius face to face, the hero dies while defeating the first level boss. The game then decides to freak out and end right there, declaring the rest of the story unnecessary.
While this run appears to be slower than the previously published movie due to more accurate emulation, it is in fact faster by 16 frames if emulation differences are not accounted for.

Rolan's Curse is an action-adventure game that's very similar to The Legend of Zelda, right down to the plot. The people of Rolan are being terrorized by the evil rule King Barius, who escaped from his imprisonment, and monsters have run amuck thanks to him. It's now up to you, with your trusty sword and subweapons you can collect, to stop him and save Rolan.
In this run, not only does ThunderAxe31 end the game early by glitching the first boss into letting him win the entire game, he also uses a password to give his character maxed stats so he can beat the game even quicker.

bobmario511 (the author), however, realized that "Hey, I'm in a dream. That means I can do anything I want!" With that in mind, he embarks on a journey as the legendary hero THIEF to live out his wildest fantasies. Unfortunately, he would soon find out that this dream would end up being the worst nightmare of his life, traveling through a chaotic world devoid of any logic, meaning, or consistent appearance. Summoning the power of all of the allies he can get, our hero, BowWow, Marin, a ghost, and a flying rooster travel together to make sense of the nonsensical hell of Link's own imagination, collecting what he believes to be the 8 Instruments and Secret Seashells on their way.

bobmario511 (the author), however, decided collecting instruments for a one-man band was a waste of time, so he skipped all of that and went straight to the Wind Fish (with a pesky boss battle in the middle).
This is a 00:00.57 second improvement over the previous run. See the author's notes for more details.

Nathan Graves is a vampire hunter trying to save his master, Morris, from the clutches of Dracula. Normally this would require collecting lots of different items as well as hours of leveling, but Cardboard proves collectible cards passé by gathering almost none of the cards required for spells and blazing through the game at warp speed without regard to levels or his own safety.
This movie is a 10.5 second improvement over the author's previous movie through various small & thorough optimizations.

When played normally, Castlevania: Circle of the Moon is a rather long game, in which exploration, leveling up, and killing bosses in order to gain access to different items or portions of the castle is necessary. However, a bit of luck manipulation and a series of glitches involving DSS cards throw all these aspects of gameplay out of the window, allowing the player to warp directly to Dracula and kill him humiliatingly in just over 5 minutes.
This movie is a 227 frame improvement over the previous movie by klmz with some more optimizations.

Normally using the DSS card system of Castlevania: Circle of the Moon grants abilities that one would not otherwise have access to. With a glitch, one can access these abilities anyways, making the DSS cards themselves mere collector's items. When placed under the control of klmz however, Nathan Graves proves himself to be an avid collector, abusing zips and other glitches to quickly go around the castle and obtain all the DSS cards and finish off Dracula in 19 minutes and 30 seconds.

As one of the many video game adaptations of the Harry Potter series, this adventure game for the GBA sticks fairly closely to the plot of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's/Sorcerer's Stone as Harry attends his first year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Despite the large number of adaptations out there, at the start of 2015 this is only the first Harry Potter game to receive a movie on TASVideos.
This game has gameplay and mechanics that differ from the Harry Potter games on any other console, and was notorious for its infuriating pit and platform puzzles, but in this movie it is hard to tell what all the fuss was about. With precise spell usage, a little enemy manipulation, and the aid of some prefects who clearly need an eye-test, the game is completed in a little under an hour.

Metroid: Zero Mission is a retelling of the original Metroid's story with a couple of new plot twists and updated gameplay.
This movie improves on the previous attempt by the same author by 28 in-game seconds and 34 seconds of real time. The time saved comes from more optimized movements and a few minor tricks, but mainly from a greater understanding of RNG in the game.

Samus's first adventure is retold in Metroid: Zero Mission with extra storyline, extra items and on a system with a better graphics processor. This run completes the game with 100% item collection, at least as far as the end-of-game display is concerned.
This run is an improvement over Dragonfangs's previous work. It saves about 4 seconds of In-Game time, but uses a new route that removes lots of door transitions, saving about 20 seconds of real time. The previous run used VisualBoyAdvance that runs this game inaccurately fast compared to BizHawk (mGBA core) used here, which is why the movie time appears longer.

You probably know Nancy Drew. She's a popular fictional character dating back to the 1930s who has a knack for solving (and attracting) all sorts of mysteries. Many movies, TV shows, and even video games were made about her.
In Nancy Drew: Message in a Haunted Mansion, Nancy comes to a hotel owned by her friend's friend where accidents have been happening, and rumors even say that it's a ghost behind all the mayhem, perhaps exacting some sort of revenge from beyond the grave. But eventually we find out the problem is a much simpler and common one instead, human greed, and that there's really nothing supernatural going on in the hotel, with the exception of Nancy Drew herself, who somehow knows solutions to puzzles without ever finding them and causes other strange stuff to happen as well in this run.

Set before the events of the first two NES games, the player gets to play as Christopher Belmont, one of Simon's ancestors.
Unlike most Castlevania games, there are no sub-weapons, and the player loses whip upgrades upon damage. Additionally, the Castlevania Game Boy games, unlike their NES counterparts, have ropes and moving spike walls instead of stairs.
This game, being one of the first to come out for the Game Boy, was programmed poorly, exhibiting lots of lag, and also suffers from poor jump controls. Seizing upon that, the level designers took it upon themselves to create fake difficulty by requiring pixel perfect jumps throughout.
In this movie, arukAdo improves the previous TAS by 57.68 seconds (after accounting for emulation differences), thanks to newly found tricks and better optimisation. Please read the author's comments for more details.
Note: The Konami Collection version was used instead of the original, as it lags a bit less, and is also fully colored.

Scooby-Doo! Classic Creep Capers is a point-and-click adventure game in six chapters. Scooby, Shaggy, Fred, Velma and Daphne are on the trail of a jewel thief. Their investigation leads them to an old spooky house, Jekyll Mansion. Once inside, they search the rooms to gather clues to reveal the identity of the jewel thief. Gameplay consists of positioning characters close to objects in such a way that a menu at the bottom of the screen lights up.

To solve puzzles, the player switches between characters and uses each person's special abilities.
