You play as a treasure hunter named Panama Joe, whose goal is to find an ancient treasure hidden by Aztec warrior deep inside catacombs. But beware, the catacombs are a large maze inhabited by monsters. Bouncing and rolling skulls, dancing spiders, disappearing and re-appearing chains and tons of fire await you. You'll have to find many keys and unlock doors in order to reach your goal. Panama Joe can jump and climb ladders, but doesn't have much to offer in terms of combat. That's why the monsters in the game should be avoided: a collision with an enemy leads to a premature death. He will also find amulets which make him invulnerable for a short time.

One of them, called Jean Raymond, found an old church in which to hide from crusaders, not knowing that beneath its ruins lay buried an ancient evil." Players take control of Jean Raymond, who can do no more than walk, crawl, and jump, as he explores the old church, discovering its terrible secrets the deeper he goes.
Noxxa collects the 12 crosses necessary to beat the game quickly and efficiently and brings them to the altar deep below the church, leading Jean to his unfortunate fate in record time.

Commander Keen 5: The Armageddon Machine (1991) is a part of the popular Commander Keen saga, developed by id Software. It is a direct continuation of the previous episode of Goodbye Galaxy, in which Commander Keen (Billy Blaze) has learned from the Oracle of Gnosticus IV that the evil Shikadi plan to blow up the galaxy with their doomsday device, the Omegamatic (It slices! It dices! It causes a 100,000 light year-diameter quantum explosion!). Naturally, he sets out to sabotage the machine and stop the Shikadi.
Using a series of glitches, Keen completes only four stages to get to the end game, only one of which takes any significant length of time, and destroys the Quantum Explosion Dynamo, the core of the Omegamatic in the impossibly short time of 2:02. In the process, he manages to inadvertently prevent the Shikadi from accomplishing their escape (though you have to watch the ending very closely to figure out that this has happened here).

Initially published as a commercial game between Invasion of the Vorticons and Goodbye, Galaxy! in 1991, Commander Keen: Keen Dreams was largely overlooked until it saw a shareware release in late 1992 almost a year after Goodbye, Galaxy!. It is informally known as Keen 3.5 among fans.
In Keen Dreams, Commander Keen goes to sleep and finds himself in the land of Tuberia, where he discovers that Earth children are being trapped in their sleep to work as slaves for the evil King Boobus Tuber. Out of ammo and lacking his trusty pogo stick, Keen must resort to scavenging Flower Power and Boobus Bombs from the local flora in order to combat the tuberian threat.

Jetpack is a platformer game (now freeware), featuring a man equipped with a jetpack which he uses for flying (if it has fuel, otherwise he can jump) and a phase shifter for temporarily getting rid of troublesome bricks. His goal is to collect all the green gems in 100 devilish stages and avoid hordes of enemies.
In this extremely carefully planned run, slamo completes the game in 32 minutes and 22 seconds with large heaps of luck manipulation and glitch abuse. A normal player would barely get through the first 10 levels in that amount of time.
Prepare to be blown away watching large complex levels completed in under 20 seconds on average. Enjoy seeing extremely tight movement with enemies all around without getting hit, or getting hit yet somehow managing to complete the level anyway. Be dazzled as a dozen teleporters are all simultaneously manipulated to keep enemies away from our hero. Be sure not to fall off your seat when you see Jetman passing through spikes unharmed or completing levels with just the right amount of fuel, and narrowly avoiding certain doom from becoming trapped in reappearing walls.
Practically every aspect of the game was carefully analyzed and thoroughly documented by our users, slamo, Svimmer, Ilari, Nach, creaothceann, and hegyak for the creation of this run. This includes full level maps, with secrets in plain view.

Since the action is so fast paced, there's an alternate YouTube encode at 43% speed, and alternate download encodes at 50% and 75% speeds. It is recommended to watch this run at a slower speed to fully appreciate the timing and many of the tricks performed.

Note that this is a Famicom Disk System game. Read What is FDS for more information.
Also note that this movie is about 42 seconds longer than the previous movie. This is due to the inaccurate (shorter) FDS load times emulated by Famtasia.

Esper Dream is an action RPG for the Famicom Disk System. It stars a boy with extrasensory perception (ESP) who has been transported into a book and must save the world inside by rescuing a mayor's daughter and collecting two special items. In addition to his ESP powers, he can use projectile weapons on his quest.
This run completes the game in record time by manipulating enemy position in battles, using the weapons and ESP powers strategically, and getting a large number of esper points (EP)--necessary for using the ESP powers--via an underflow glitch.

Super Mario Bros. 2 is the infamous sequel to Super Mario Bros. that was released only in Japan for the Famicom Disk System. Considered too difficult and too similar to the original game, it was skipped over for localization in favor of making Doki Doki Panic into the actual Super Mario Bros. 2 for the NES. This game would later be remade in Super Mario All-Stars as Super Mario Bros: The Lost Levels.
Kzwbz, Argentu-M, and Endless Wind collaborate to create a run that collects every item in Worlds 1-8 except for Poison Mushrooms as fast as possible. World 9 is not played as it does not contain any items, and Worlds A-D are not played as that requires completing the game eight times in a row to unlock.

A Boy and His Blob: The Rescue of Princess Blobette is a sequel to the NES game with equally silly title. This time, the boy and his obedient friend save a princess, who is caged in a castle tower. The rescue operation is supposedly executed as efficiently as possible, even though it means that the boy needs to sacrifice one of his lives just to save some time.

After Burst for Game Boy was released exclusively in Japan by NCS in 1990. Conceptually just a simple 2D shooter, it has three modes: Normal, 1P VS, and 2P VS.
The game features a ballistic bullet mechanic where you can charge each shot to have a higher exit velocity. Since only one player bullet can be visible at a time, the damage that can be done in any given timespan is severely limited, necessitating hitting multiple targets in one shot for best efficiency. Quite strikingly, this game is plagued by extreme lag, slowing in-game time down significantly.
This run completes the Normal mode's 30 stages in record time. We also have a run of the 1P VS mode, which has different stages.

Bubble Ghost, a game ported to many platforms, has the player, as a ghost, guide a bubble through a house by blowing at it; if the bubble hits anything at all it pops and the player loses a life. If that sounds difficult, well, it is - but that doesn't stop this run from making it look easy.
This movie appears to be slower than the previous publication; however, this is due to more accurate emulation. It is in fact faster by around 25.3 seconds than the previous publication, thanks to a new trick and better optimisation in many places. Please read the author's comments for more details.

This Konami-"disowned" Castlevania title follows the earliest Belmont, Sonia, as she attempts to thwart Dracula for the first time. We also meet his son Alucard for the first time. The 5 optional Belmont Treasures are collected in this movie, which enables a secret ending after the credits with mysterious implications.
strizer86 breezes through the game by whipping enemies, climbing ropes strangely, and screenwrapping around Dracula's castle. The author beats the previous run by 1:53.92 minutes, owing to careful lag management, judicious use of Burning Mode, and a variety of new tricks.

Contra: The Alien Wars is the third entry in the Contra series. Like its predecessors, it is a predominantly side-scrolling shooter with a heavy emphasis on action. The protagonist can fire in eight directions when standing still. New abilities include climbing on walls, grabbing poles and navigating tanks. Parts of scenery can be destroyed. Originally released on the SNES, this version of the game was released on the Game Boy in 1994.
ThunderAxe31 makes quick work of this game, while refusing to kill any enemies. Well, he accidentally stomped on a couple of them, watched one fall into the abyss, wasn't careful enough and enabled some landmines... Some enemies even exploded by themselves. But it was never his intention, okay? It's a pacifist completion.

Prehistorik Man (not to be confused with the game of the same name on the SNES, which is the sequel) was a platform game for the Game Boy, made by Titus Interactive. This game is actually a port of Prehistorik 2, which was made for MS-DOS and Amstrad CPC. Even with the major cuts out from the original PC game, Prehistorik Man seems to still be a rather faithful port, and pulled off some very interesting technical feats for the Game Boy.
CasualPokePlayer and WarHippy complete the game in record time.

Rolan's Curse is like a simplified version of the NES Legend of Zelda with slower gameplay and more restricted game world, resulting in a primitive hack-and-slash experience. 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.

In Rolan's Curse II, a single player takes control of a brave knight destined to once again destroy King Barius' forces and restore peace to Rolan. This time, however, the player can take along a number of items for a quick boost when they're in big trouble. The player can also level up, perform magic, and fly to certain points on the map. The player can also take along up to three allies and switch between them as the situation warrants.

This is the second and last true Mario game for the original Game Boy. It has unique power ups like carrots and bubbles and allows the player to go through each of the worlds in any order. It also features the first appearance of Wario, who would become a staple character for Nintendo.
This is a 1 minute and 5 second improvement over the previous movie thanks to newly discovered glitches which can be found in the author's comments.

Published on 12/22/2014
Originally meant as a sequel to the Super Mario Land games, Wario Land eventually proved popular enough in its own right to launch its own series.
Wario, having been kicked out of Mario's castle in his first appearance, decides, in his eternal greed, to search for a statue stolen by the nefarious Captain Syrup and the Black Sugar Gang. This would normally involve questing for hidden treasures and collecting as many coins as he can possibly amass along the way.
Here, however, Wario decides this isn't worth his time and proceeds as quickly as possible towards the final confrontation — going so far as to skip entire levels and otherwise make a mockery of the game engine.
This run is a 02:11.61 improvement over the previous movie through better optimization.

This movie is set to obsolete the seemingly shorter "game end glitch" branch, because the "glitch" in the latter has been proven to be an emulator bug.

Mario Party Advance follows a different format than the main games, since only a single person can play without connecting to another GBA. In this game, the player moves around the game board, visiting characters, running quests, and playing minigames. Many of the non-player characters are from classic Nintendo 64 games like Super Mario 64, Mario Party, and Paper Mario.
In order to beat the game as fast as possible, Nacho manipulates luck to achieve favorable rolls. Careful Mushroom management also allows him to intentionally lose some minigames when it would be faster than beating them.

Pokémon: Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald form the third generation of Pokémon, after Pokémon: Gold and Silver. Noticeable differences include the graphics and interface, Pokémon abilities, and running shoes that allow the player to move around much faster in the overworld before getting the bike.
This improvement of nearly 22 minutes over the previous TAS is the result of thorough research and testing by the author. A new strategy allows ending the game with only 5 badges by corrupting the memory, allowing her to execute arbitrary code. This was possible due to a switch to the Japanese version, which has a larger character set to use for the PC Box payload. For more information, see the author's comments.
We also have a run that completes the entire game without major glitches.

Sabrina the Teenage Witch: Potion Commotion was released for the GBA by Ubisoft in 2002. It is based on the sitcom, which is itself based on the Archie Comics spinoff series of the same name (which began in 1962). In the game's plot, several dramatic things happen with Hilda and Zelda (characters that never show up in gameplay) messing up their spells and making some sort of catastrophe that Sabrina has to fix, each catastrophe defining one of the four worlds. Along the way, Sabrina collects ingredients, which are later mixed up in a potion mini-game at the end of each world, and unlocks spells, which she can use to defeat enemies, grow vines, and so on.
Ready Steady Yeti runs through the game in record time, taking high advantage of the game's physics. The ceiling glitch used throughout the run is especially notable, since it is used to skip large portions of many of the levels.

RoboCop for the GBC is a top-down shooter made by Mirage Interactive and Titus. The game itself consists of large maze levels and the slow movement pace of RoboCop. The difficulty in this game can be very obnoxious.
In this run, the author makes usage of a simple L+R glitch which doubles RoboCop's speed without affecting camera speed if three directions at once are pressed. In addition to this, it even allows him to warp to the next screen immediately when he catches up to the edge of the camera view while performing this glitch, and if there is an adjacent room to the direction where he's going. This allows him to get through most troublesome walls. The author provides detailed comments which help understanding what is going on.
