As TASvideos.org has grown and changed, so have the tools used to create the content found within it. These movies benefited from only marginally better tools than those available in 2004, and the tools we have at our disposal today almost guarantee that improvements are possible. So if you're new to TASing, or a veteran looking for your next project, take a look at these movies and see just how much you can make them better!
Street Fighter 2010, completely unrelated to the fighting game series, is a unique game to say the least. The player must go through a series of levels, collecting enough powerups to warp from one to the next.
To progress as quickly as possible, proper planning of which enemies to target and what order to target them in is imperative. As this planning is evident here, this run by nesrocks is all the more impressive. Even one who is not familiar with the game should find this run very beautiful and a lot of fun to watch.

Kirby Super Star is a consolidation of eight Kirby games in one. Since most of the games must be completed to reach the credits, this movie is fairly long.
The author, nitsuja, controls both players when applicable rather than letting the CPU operate the helper.
For those interested, the obsoleted movie uses only one controller. This accounts for the large time difference between the two movies.

Lagoon is a low-tempo adventure game much like Zelda.
It is up to Nasir, Hero of Light, to save Lakeland from Zerah. Zerah is attempting to release the Evil Sprit and pollute all the water. This game is difficult due to the length of Nasir's sword.
We recommend reading the author's comments.

Shapeshifting dogs. Evil robots. Alchemy. Cheesy B movie references. These are all par for the course in Secret of Evermore, a very loose "sequel" to Secret of Mana. The story follows a boy that is thrust into a virtual world and finds himself with no immediate means to escape. As the boy travels, the geography changes to reflect certain eras of real-life history, adding a unique aspect to the game.
The author has aimed for fastest time with 100% completion.

Here you can see a revision of this game by nitsuja, 04:35.32 minutes faster than the previous run by mazzeneko. The strategy used was changed radically, using Raphael instead of Donatello and using dash moves more often.
The damage for every move was mapped out carefully by monitoring the internal values of the RAM, to be able to choose the best attack for every situation. Luck was manipulated to make some enemies appear in more convenient positions.
