Advanced Dungeons & Dragons: Cloudy Mountain was released for the Intellivision console in 1982 and was the first licensed D&D videogame. Though it bears little resemblance to the iconic tabletop RPG, it does have dungeons and it also has dragons.
The gameplay involves exploring a series of randomly generated mazes, searching for tools or arrows with which to progress on the overworld map, or to defeat monsters. The end goal is to reach Cloudy Mountain and recover the Crown of Kings from the fearsome winged dragons.
Watch as Winslinator improves on his previous by 1 frame thanks to better lag management.

Advanced Dungeons & Dragons: Treasure of Tarmin was the second licensed AD&D videogame on the Intellivision. The gameplay involves exploring a series of randomly generated mazes searching for weapons, armor, treasures, and magical items to battle a wide variety of monsters RPG-style. The game was released in 1982, meaning the 3D dungeon crawler perspective was very innovative for its time.
In this run, Winslinator uses an absurd amount of luck manipulation to breeze through the 12 chambers, defeat the Minotaur, and collect the Tarmin Treasure in under a minute. It improves upon the previous run by 00:07.63 seconds, thanks to a completely reworked route that features better movement optimization, collects the Teleport book earlier, and forgoes collecting the Midas book!

Night Stalker is a top-down maze shooter released in 1982 for the Mattel Intellivision. You are trapped in a maze while robots, spiders, and bats relentlessly track you down. The key to survival is to destroy as many of them as possible -- before they get you!
While the robots only spawn in the lower left corner of the map, the player is normally given an incentive to wander throughout the maze when ammo spawns in a far away location. TheWinslinator and SuperMonkeypotato make the game look too easy by manipulating ammo to also only spawn in the lower left corner for the fastest robot massacre in history! The robots aren't shown any mercy once an Invisible Robot is killed, which appears after 80,000 points is reached, and marks all of the game's content being showcased.

The alien armada is closing in on your Mother Ship. You're awesomely outnumbered, and they attack and attack... In Space Battle, the player is put in command of three fighter squadrons, tasked with protecting their mothership from an alien aggressor. The game has two modes that the player can switch between: a "situation map" where the player sends their own fighters to intercept alien squadrons, and a battle screen that allows the player to fight the enemy directly by destroying their ships with lasers.
While the player can only engage in battle with one squadron at a time, the player's other squadrons will engage with the enemy in real time, via a simple AI. In this run, Winslinator defeats the alien armada in record time by deft control of the battle screen, allowing the blue and white player squadron to destroy their targets quickly, then manipulating luck such that the AI proceeds to defeat all of the remaining enemy fleet.
As a fun side-note on the development of this game: the alien invaders are clearly designed after the Cylon Raiders from the original Battlestar Galactica. One of Mattel's subsidiary companies had rights to produce Battlestar Galactica toys, but it was discovered late into development of this game that Mattel itself did not get the rights to the name, so this game had its name changed to Space Battle but still featured the not-Cylon sprites.

In Star Strike, the player controls a spaceship launched against invaders that are attempting to destroy Earth with the DeathSt... er, an alien planet-destroying superweapon! Players fly along a trench in the alien superweapon, destroying weapon silos and fending off alien fighters. If any silos are left standing when Earth is in range, it's game over.
Winslinator bombs all 5 weapon silos in record time, while completely ignoring the harassing enemy fighters since destroying them causes costly lag.
