Anubis II (read: "Anubis, the Second") is a fast-paced platformer by Data Design Interactive, the creators of Ninjabread Man, Myth Makers: Trixie in Toyland and Rock 'n' Roll Adventures, all of which have virtually identical gameplay. The evil spirit Mumm'hotep has plunged Egypt into darkness, and Anubis II, the guardian of the tombs, sets out to stop him!
But it seems that this quest is much easier than it appears. After completely skipping going through the starting gate, Anubis decides to play a bunch of minigames. This somehow causes his quest to become completed. There was much rejoicing.

Donkey Kong Country Returns is a sidescrolling platforming game for the Wii released in 2010, and was the first mainline Donkey Kong game to be released in a long time. The plot follows the Island in which Donkey Kong lives on suddenly being swarmed by the Tiki Tak Tribe, who then hypnotizes the animals on the island to bring bananas to the volcano. Although the tribe was able to steal the Kong's banana hoard, for some reason Donkey Kong couldn't be hypnotized. After punching the Tiki creature out of his hut, Donkey Kong goes out to stop the Tiki Tribe and get back the banana hoard.
TheRandomMaster, SpeedyTheHedgehog & Jaiden all shake the Wii remote to roll their way to the top of the volcano and defeat the Tiki Tak Tribe in record time.

Goldeneye: 007 for the Nintendo Wii is a full-scale re-imagining of the N64 game, and includes no assets from the original game. It takes the classic Goldeneye story and updates it to the standards of a modern first-person shooter. It also features Daniel Craig rather than Pierce Brosnan, who played James Bond in the film and the Nintendo 64 game. It has many modern features such as the ability to sprint and aim down sights.
The missions in this game are based on the ones from the classic Nintendo 64 version instead of the film. Some of the stages from the original game have been combined in this game (for example, Bunker on Wii is like Bunker+Silo on N64 and Cradle is like Control+Cradle on N64). But there are also some brand-new missions like Nightclub and Solar.
This TAS plays on the hardest difficulty, 007 Classic. Like the original N64 game, the harder difficulties have more objectives than the easier difficulties. This makes the route much more interesting because the goal isn't simply to sprint to the end of the mission. 007 Classic also removes regenerating health, so there is much more health management on this difficulty. Because a modern Call-of-Duty style FPS game with no health regeneration would be unfair, the developers added body armor that is only available on 007 classic, which the TAS makes great use of.
Since this game has roughly 35 minutes of unskippable cutscenes, the author provided a condensed video with all the cutscenes and loading screens removed.

Gummy Bears Minigolf, released in September 2010, is a licensed mini-golf game for the Nintendo Wii. You can play as one of eight different colored Gummy Bears, with four colorful mini-golf courses to choose from.
Originally submitting this as an April Fool's joke, Fog daringly went where few people had gone before by playing through this awful game. He abuses the game's poor physics whenever possible to finish every hole in the four mini-golf courses as fast as possible.

Kirby's Return to Dreamland is the 12th platforming installment in the series, and the first traditional Kirby platformer released in a decade after Kirby 64. The starship Lor Starcutter crash-lands on planet Popstar, and the extraterrestrial captain Magolor promises Kirby and friends a trip to his homeworld if they will help him find the scattered pieces of his ship in order to rebuild it. Like many Kirby antagonists before him, Magolor's true motives turn out to be nefarious, resulting in the Kirby gang once again fighting to save their galaxy.
Kirby's Return to Dreamland plays like a traditional Kirby game, seeing Kirby platforming through the game's 8 levels and inhaling foes to gain their powers. Elomavi flies through the game at incredible speed using the Wing copy ability's various fast-moving special moves (especially Condor Head). There is also a lot of flapping involved.
The author's commentary for the run is available in all of the encodes of the movie.

Watch as Mega Man takes on the latest set of Robot Masters and everyone's favorite mad roboticist for the tenth time in the classic series.
This run is played on normal difficulty (the highest available with no prior save data) and, amongst other feats, takes no damage at all (Mr. Perfect achievement), kills one of every enemy (World Warrior achievement), and manipulates more extra lives and large power-ups than you've probably ever seen before in a single playthrough. The final in-game time is 20:04.
In a fit of cosmic irony, this publication, which is the first for a current set-top console, is of a game deliberately designed to be a throwback to the NES days.

Mega Man 9, known in Japan as Rockman 9: Yabō no Fukkatsu!! (ロックマン9 野望の復活!!) is a video game made by Capcom and Inti Creates for the WiiWare download service, among others, in 2008. This game is notable in that despite being developed for modern consoles, it features 8-bit visuals and audio as a retro throwback to the NES entries of the series. It also features a plot twist early on in that Dr. Light's robots go on a rampage, with Dr. Wily not having any connection to the incident (or so he claims).
AngerFist and diggidoyo blaze through the game and defeat Dr. Wily once again in 30 minutes and 20.98 seconds (19:11 in-game time).

Two characters are available. Here, Bernka plays the amnesiac ninja Kisuke on highest difficulty, by way of which he gets granted only one hitpoint.

Rayman Origins features the return of the Rayman character in a 2D platformer. Many of the original Rayman game's characters and enemies make an appearance, like Livingstones, Electoons, Betilla and the Magician's hat. There are also various characters from Rayman 2 such as Globox, the Teensies and Lums. The game's atmosphere, however, is different from the original Rayman game and has a very "wacky" feel instead. The main objective of each level is to rescue as many Electoons as possible similarly to the original game.
keylie, as 4 players, collects the minimum Electoons required to reach the Magician and defeat him in record time.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl is the third installment in the Super Smash Bros. series, released for the Wii in 2008. While its core mechanics are the same as its predecessors (where the genre’s traditional health bar is replaced with a percent counter, with the goal of knocking opponents off the stage instead of reducing their HP to zero), Brawl changed many aspects of the game from Super Smash Bros. Melee, resulting in the game generally being considered the "slowest" in the series as a result.
Brawl is the first game in the series to have a dedicated story mode, called "The Subspace Emissary", which is the main focus of this TAS. The Subspace Emissary is mostly composed of side-scrolling platforming levels with cutscenes and beat-’em-up sections called "Ambushes" - similar to games like Kirby Super Star - while also containing the traditional versus matches and bosses like its predecessors.
DyllonStej takes advantage of oversights in the game's damage mechanics, which allows for extreme travel speed without being KO'd, in order to literally fly through the game at record-setting speed. Pervasive luck-manipulation throughout the movie ensures that the author always gets the right item or sticker to go even faster. The author has improved on their previous submission by an impressive 6:21.61 minutes via numerous improvements to routing and luck manipulation, all of which are detailed in the voluminous submission notes.

Aliens meet the Illuminati is basically the plot of The Conduit, a First Person Shooter exclusive to the Wii. The game was made in response to the relative lack of more "hardcore" titles for the console at the time. In this title, one plays as Michael Ford fighting against the Trust, a mysterious organization trying to control America, and the Drudge, a race of alien invaders working with the Trust. The player is able to use a variety of weapon types to fight off attackers and makes use of an artifact called the All Seeing Eye to solve puzzles.
In this TAS, NEVERDOORS uses absurd aim, out of bounds, and other glitches to finish the game in under 46 minutes, and in 40:08 ingame time.

Note: There are also lossless encodes and encodes at additional resolutions available in the discussion thread.
