Mad Mike and the Quest for Stale Gum It's 2022 and we FINALLY have a licensed Garbage Pail Kids game coming for the NES! In the meantime, please enjoy the PC version, which I affectionately call "The Super Mario Bros. 2 We Have At Home." This goofy yet intense 2D Platformer features multiple playable characters, damage boosts, boss quick kills, and impressive skips to get around enemies and obstacles from all over space/time. Final boss? The Devil. How do we kill him? Hot sauce and snot rockets. (Timestamps in video description) Status: Decline

Scorn Fully aware of the reality that this will likely not get in due to extreme body horror and gore, I thought I'd give this a submission anyway since it was heavily anticipated. It's a slow game and mostly consists of holding the forward key, but there's some out-of-bounds discovered in Act IV and mechanically simplistic enough that optimizing it comes down to some very tight input timings.

Many of the sequence breaks are not used in main categories due to how sub-optimal they are, but MS% is a love letter to the devs by showing their sequence breaks are not ignored.

Browny is a great character to try the game out thanks to its small hitbox & deadly yo-yo weapon.

Played in Japanese to allow the character to have 3HP instead of the usual 1HP, it does make the run easier but allows strategies that would have been very risky on US 1HP runs.

Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine Mean Bean Machine is a puzzle game of Puyo Puyo. The old Puyo Puyo game is difficult because of 5 colors. 5 colors Puyo Puyo requires the answer to stackings and my answer is the mix of stable stack and aggressive stack called Death Tower (sort of Power Chain). Both the bias of Puyo and the enemy attacks are massive RNG. Status: Decline

Gallop Racer 2006 Gallop Racer 2006 is a racing game in which players control a horse as a racehorse jockey. It is a game that requires a lot of judgment, so you can't let your guard down for even a moment.

Metroid Deep Freeze Metroid Deep Freeze is a ROM-hack of Metroid: Zero Mission. It was created by a single person in the span of a month.

Naturally it's on the shorter side of things. In fact the Any% of this run is about 6 minutes, but that is because a lot of things in this game are optional. The routing of this was done mostly by me with the input and suggestion of a fellow GBA Metroid speedrunner.

In this run we will be collecting all the items that are available and fight all the bosses.

The game features a healthy mix of being good and efficient at the game and some glitches/skips, by mainly abusing smaller oversights in AI behaviour or leveldesign or weird interactions between objects.

Galaxy Trucker A digital adaptation of the chaotic board game Galaxy Trucker. It has a campaign mode, with plot and dialogue and stuff. Instead of spending hours completing the campaign, I'm getting to something else that resembles an ending -- defeating the space pirates and declaring myself to be the new space pirates. I build a lot of small, probably-viable ships.

It's a high variance run so I'm giving myself 10 minutes over my recorded PB.

Serious Sam 2 I'd really rather Kaelthas did this run instead, with me providing commentary for it. However, I can be placed on stand-by should Kaelthas drop out last minute for any reason.

My 3rd place PB is currently 30 minutes slower than the tied WR. A lot of this timeloss is because of some multi-minute time saves which were found after I got distracted from running this. I should be able to easily pick up the game and lower my time.

Still, Kaelthas is the better player, so give it to them.

Giraffe and Annika A 3d platformer featuring an adorable catgirl. In the All Dungeons run, we see a substantial amount of the game, but also take advantage of some fascinating bugs to skip some time-consuming things. The day/night cycle in the overworld lends some urgency to getting skips in time.

Megaman X3 Widely considered as the black sheep of the SNES Megaman X games but the speedrun is amazing! Midair dashes horizontally AND vertically makes all the difference.

The run features a varied arsenal of unique weaponry, plenty of rather fluid combat, and a heavy amount of boss RNG that ranges from amusing to downright trolly.

The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD No Manual Super Swim (NoMSS) is decently different from the normal All Dungeons route

Instead of skipping the intro we optimally move through it with a new cutscene skip and get a different early dungeon order all leading up to a very fast paced late game with cool tricks and sequence breaking

Windwaker has been at GDQ several times before, but never a NoMSS category. It'd be cool to showcase to people because it is an easier entry level that could get more people into the game!

Quake 4 This is my current inspiration in speedrunning. The skill progression in the game is very linear. For example, the first levels of the game have huge invisible walls, long autoscrollers, slow strafe jumps, but the further you go, the better it is.

Most route was done back in 2006, but never shown on such events, so I wish to introduce it, maybe to find new runners.

Run contains good movement and based on it skips, major sequence breaks, some npc manips, saveload buffering, minor clips.

This category ignores all of the stuff that makes this game great by leverages arbitrary memory writes to set the epilogue active flag. To do this we fully manipulate all encounters to go fast and leverage powerful glitches to skip through a lot of things. All in all this category is a stark contrast to the 6 hour No S&Q version of this run. Status: Decline

Golden Sun: Dark Dawn The last game in the Golden Sun series, featuring all the hallmarks from GBA games - traditional JRPG mechanics with fast and satisfying menus, Motoi Sakuraba's musical brilliance, and incredible dungeon designs.

Any% is totally unrecognisable from the casual experience, leveraging near un-restricted overworld movement, significant in-dungeon sequence breaks, a full character skip, and more. All of this tech permits us skip a lot of things and push the game mechanics to the limit.

One Piece: World Seeker Anime action-adventure RPG that has unique traversal mechanics and an insanely fun combat system.
In this run, we start a new file and try to beat Isaac as fast as possible.
There are no major glitches or skips in this run, as they've yet to be discovered.
Since this game is really fun to watch/play and since it hasn't been showcased at a GDQ before, I believe it deserves a chance to shine.

Pokémon Ultra Moon Pokémon Ultra Moon probably has one of the most interesting Glitchless routes in Pokémon speedruns. It abuses a lot of strategic aspects that an ingame trade Hawlucha provides. It always comes with maximum attack and the overpowered ability Unburden. The hardest battle against Ultra Necrozma gets dealt with using just a level 8 Zorua, which is hilarious to witness as a viewer.

For The King For The King is a rouge-like, tabletop-style RPG. The game is set so that the players have to find weapons and armor, fight enemies, earn gold for items and upgrades, and ultimately make their way through the story. The run itself is fascinating in that no two games are the same, which adds a level of interest to see how the runners work with what is available. Status: Decline

Metal Gear (DOS) We've seen Snake go on many missions in the Metal Gear series official and unofficial. But have you seen this worst mission that Snake has been on? Recently routed to make a normally impossible game due to design possible, we can watch Snake complete his worst mission as a candidate for awful block.

This is a poorly ported version of the NES version.

Aztec Challenge So Aztec Challenge is a game written by Paul Norman for Cosmi, he did a FEW games for them (The Forbidden Forest, Beyond the Forbidden Forest) - I do Phase 1% (easiest difficulty) - The player plays as an Aztec prisoner attempting to escape the empire before being sacrificed. There are 7 stages total. The game is RNG Heck, but there are some skips and strats I've developed. (Sadly I'm currently the only runner.)

Pac-Man 99 As the one of the newest retro battle royale crazes, Pac-Man 99 gives the genre yet another fresh take, bringing everyone’s favorite yellow ghost gobbler to the forefront! At the top level, strategies often switch several times during individual matches, meaning gameplay is diverse, engaging, and filled with on-the-fly strategizing and lightning fast movement. One-handed games and private lobbies open to the viewers could also be used for the showcase, adding more fun variety to the experience. Status: Decline

Xena: Warrior Princess Literally the best game that Titus ever made. Still belongs in Awful Block.

Xena for GBC is essentially a Link's Awakening clone. By abusing a glitch that allows Xena to chain jumps over death pits, we skip... uh... pretty much everything except for the sword. The run is tricky but reliable - the only risk is that one screen can crash if too many frogs spawn.

The submission is on emulator, but I have all the gear needed to stream on console using the Game Boy Player for GCN.

Weird Dreams Submitted as a race with FlannelKat. If you want the game but only one runner, FlannelKat has the better time.

Weird Dreams is one of the strangest messes for the DOS - terrible controls, horrifying creatures, and dumb logic. The final boss is four brains, and to beat it, you slap three brains with a fish. To make the game consistent, we use an in-game code to give infinite lives - I've never seen anyone beat the game without using it. Seriously.

Trauma Team Trauma Team is a surgery simulation game from the Trauma Center series, known for its motion controls, high skill ceiling and fast-paced gameplay. This game expands on the formula to add 5 other game modes, based on different medical fields - each field adding its own twist to the gameplay. The NG+ category allows us to use text skip, only available with a completed file. We split the run into 7-8 segments based on each field and story progression, so we're submitting this as a 4-player relay. Status: Decline

Haiku, the Robot Haiku is an excellent indie 2D Metroidvania Platformer that has never been performed for a mainline GDQ. The run itself features a lot of unique movement tech, sequence breaks of certain skills/bosses, and a healthy amount of safety for a marathon setting.

Forbidden Siren Survival horror is well defined by Siren. Often without a weapon to defend yourself, your only chance of survival and speedy completion is careful movement, perfect timing, and a few good shouts. Shout Abuse (enemy manip), Shout Cancel (cancel animations), and Shout Push (clip/push through enemies) are powerful tools for dealing with deadly enemies. Everything comes down to mastering the rhythm of this highly challenging game.

Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble Donkey Kong Country 3 is a very interesting SNES platformer with fast paced movement, beautiful OST and well aged graphics. It is the the least glitched game of the trilogy, with only a couple of useful ones used in the speedrun, although they save a lot of time. It is also a very good game for races due to the minor movement optimizations available, which add up over the course of the run, and the infamous bleak skip, a frame perfect 1 minute timesave that can make or break a lead.

Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves You could say this run is "geweldig!" This game is played in either Dutch or Norwegian, or both in full game runs. With Sly 2 making its initial debut at SGDQ 2022, why not follow it up with Sly 3 at AGDQ 2023? While the run is long, there are plenty of strats like major cutscene skips and fun platforming to keep it interesting, including all new characters to play as in the Cooper Gang. Episode runs keep it short but sweet, and highlight the best segments of Sly 3 in a more condensed format. Status: Decline

In the Any% category, we use major skips to bypass entire worlds, essentially creating almost a boss rush mode which is very entertaining.

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Classic Mode 1986 is a secret mode unlocked by inputing the Konami code on the Classic Mode title screen. It's an homage to NES Castlevania released in 1986 in Japan. In this mode, everything is done to match the NES Castlevania. Miriam color is swapped to red to match Simon Belmont, and all her movements are limited: you can only go left, right, crouch, jump, attack with your whip and use your secondary weapon.

While episode runs as seen at both shows are very popular, fun, and can be seemlessly paired for 2-episodes-in-1 (as seen on NCLB), full game runs take on unique challenges that also keep runners and international audiences invested the whole time despite the run being relatively long.

Maui Mallard in Cold Shadow was first released on Genesis. The PC port is essentially a polished version of the Genesis game, and is a bit different when it comes to level design and gameplay compared to the SNES version which came later.

Silver Surfer I am offering up one of the hardest NES games to ever exist. Silver Surfer is an autoscroller that is known for it's heavy difficulty, having to memorize the right paths to take and not get hit in order to keep your power ups so that you can just progress throughout the game.

This is a game that I have played for many years and love showing off to people and would like to bring it to AGDQ.

Back to the Future So, you might be saying, isn't this an autoscroller? Yes, but this is one of my favorite bad games that I've speedran, and while it is an autoscroller, it's very hard to get a great time as you have to dodge EVERYTHING and doing a perfect run is next to impossible. I still fight hard to get this into GDQ as it is very nerve wracking and will have plenty of close calls with some of the dodges in the game.

This would be a solo play or a race with others.

Resident Evil 2 Remake The run I am submitting is a variation on the LAH run, because I will be picking up some extra healing or ammo items along the way. I am also doing a couple of safety strats, and will have to adjust my strategies and planning on the fly, depending on how badly the game decides to meme me. Almost all attacks can nearly kill you. Basically, anything can happen during this run, and my example pretty well showcases this fact.

We control a weasel chained to a rabbit, the latter of which we use as a helicopter hover and as a whip to cause thousands of dollars in property damage. The run makes use of a glitched triple/quadruple jump that lets us jump right over walls and skip huge portions of the game. Combine that with careful sprint management and the inherent comedy of the game's premise and you have a run that's guaranteed to entertain. Status: Decline

Vexx Vexx is a 3D collectathon with a large suite of sophisticated and diverse movement glitches. What sets this speedrun apart from others in the genre is its emphasis on vertical movement tech, with the ability to chain massive double and triple jumps through the use of rage jumps and fakie fireballs. Lateral movement is also snappy thanks to extended long jumps, and with the addition of some glitches like heart duping and cutscene overlap the run truly has something for every speedrun fan.

Knuckles' Chaotix Knuckles' Chaotix takes the tried and true formula of classic Sonic the Hedgehog and flips it on its head with its signature tether mechanic, which adds a lot of new physics to the game. Recently major skips have been discovered in over half of the stages in the entire game, taking advantage of the momentum that can be generated with the tether and Knuckles' gliding ability. My estimate is a bit higher because runs tend to be slightly slower on hardware, but all strats will still work. Status: Decline

We go from slow, to fast, to zooming, to ludicrous speed, to BEYOND LUDICROUS SPEED. It just keeps going and going and going, and it is glorious.

First Samurai SNES port of an Amiga/C64 game, where a samurai travels through time to take revenge on the Demon King, when his master gets killed.

What follows is a lot of quirky shenanigans: from the sword whooshes to the moment it’s lost with the words “Oh no! My sword!”. In the five stages, this will be done frequently, as the two “health” bars are managed so the weapon comes back when needed. And with the sub-items, most bosses barely exist.

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Groot and the bois save all the galaxies. Run has some longer unskippable cutscenes, but it's still clearly mostly gameplay.

Promise% is the bad ending run. The run is 99% the same as the full game run, but you do certain actions during the flashback section at 2:27:00 in the linked run. Due to this run being the same up until that point, the run could be extended to a Full Game run with an incentive.

Hollow Knight Hollow Knight is a 2D indie metroidvania game from 2017, where the Knight explores Hallownest in a journey to defeat the Infection.
