If you join the mobile speedrunning discord at there is a channel dedicated to giving / requesting speedgame recommendations for mobile including a big list broken down into genre / run length / price etc.

If you don't fancy joining another discord I'd be happy to recommend something here. Are you on iOS or Android? What genres do you like running? How short do you mean? Are you willing to pay for games or free only?

If you are like "no discords, no questions, just shut up and give me some bloody suggestions"
- Super Dangerous Dungeons (Grass Dungeon)
- Cat Bird (Marda)
- Neon Shadow
- Granny
- Nimian Legends
- Sword of Xolan
- Space Marshals 2
- Speed Run 2
- Super Bear Adventure


I always like it when games like this have an option to turn on an in game timer. I don't think it should be on by default (as that kinda ruins the immersion for casual playthroughs), but having the ability to turn it on would be super convenient for speedruns.

I can't think of any other games that don't require video off the top of my head, but a great place to ask the question would be the mobile speedrunning discord at . You might find help with overcoming your problems with recording there too.

Nice! The way you do the first skip is definitely quicker than the way I do it in my run (and avoids the dialogue with the old man which is a neat bonus).

I'm trying to picture where the second skip is located. It looks like you start at the scarred hills but I'm not sure where exactly. Could be useful as a nice little skip back to the elven tree after the dun morthwithyl quest.

I'm sure with a little more testing there could be more great time saves found using the warp and the broken climbing. Who knows, sub-hour any% might well be possible. Any plans to do runs?


Like ShikenNuggets said, unfortunately a lot of games will be inactive for a long time / forever no matter what you do and regardless of how good a speedgame they are. There is an abundance of games and relatively few runners. If it is vital for you that your speedgame has a buoyant community, it's best to look for an existing one.


Hey all

It seems likely this game (specifically, level 5) will be chosen for this round of a bi-weekly competition we hold at the Mobile Speedrunning Discord. Essentially, members can try and get the best time in that category and get points at the end of the week based on their rank on the board.

I thought I'd mention it here in case anyone who wasn't already in the MSD (I know some of you are, cough Cyt, Bogi) wanted to join and take part in the comp.

Comp starts 2pm UTC February 4 2019 and ends when someone has held WR for at least 3 days anytime after 2pm UTC February 11 2019. Discord is at

Whether or not you want to take part, you should join us at the MSD if you have any interest in mobile speedrunning!


Potato ftw ! In seriousness it doesn't look like it would give a material advantage. A c.4% increase in reaction time would probably not effect performance hugely.


If you would like to record a 100% run I would be happy to add a category for that on the leaderboards. Just submit it as any% and note in the description that it needs its own category, I can then add it.

ChargedSquid, Sukaichae and DrHades like this. 

Yeah, you might be right. If you want to run a fresh game category then I think it would be quite cool due to the raised difficulty.


Good idea but it would kinda suck to have to grind all over again to get the cards back if/when you want to go back and do any%


Btw sat, why did my @SaturnRunsGames not work?

Edit: Nvm, seems to work now

The mobile version IGT is only in seconds. I didn't realise the PC version IGT includes millisecs. I guess both boards can use IGT and the PC one include milliseconds so everyone is happy 🙂

The skips in current runs are only possible with the tilt controls but do not use power ups. If someone comes along with runs using power ups then a new subcategory could be added then.

I will created the PC / Mobile subcategory now and add milliseconds, and add you as a mod.

Afaik there are no current runs with power-ups so we could just make it a rule that power-ups are not allowed, until someone comes along who is desperate to run with power-ups (seems unlikely). Otherwise I think we complicate the boards potentially unnecessarily.

As for milliseconds, it is a tricky one. I always prefer using IGT where possible on mobile to make it more accessible and convenient for runners. Yes, there are a few ties but that can add an element of excitement (e.g. Goldeneye). Ties are also less of an issue unless / until the game becomes popular.

The above said, I have no runs on the board (I did a reeaaallly bad Purple World run which I might submit) so should leave that issue to saturn and wuzi. Indeed, if neither of them plan on actively running it in the short/ medium term and you can submit some runs to show that you do plan to run it, then I think it right that you get mod and make the changes you want to make. @Wuzi @SaturnRunsGames

As an aside, if you plan on running the game on PC 2gethR, it would make sense to have PC / Mobile separate categories because use of the gyroscopic controls is OP in this game.

I have no objection to that if the others don't


I tend to do a lot of runs late at night which is fine but if I speedrun whilst tired the game feels like it's going a lot faster, as my reaction times get dulled. If you are getting your sleep at other times then I don't see a problem.


On the mobile speedrunning discord we have a channel where anyone can drop a post with their preferences to ask for suggestions, in particular (a) Platform(s) (b) Run duration (c) Genre(s) (d) Pay stance (e) Other criteria. A sticky on these forums (fora?) for suggestion requests spelling out what leads people need to give would work pretty well imo.

I can but don't think I'll get the chance for another week. Hopefully wuzi or Saturn spot this beforehand.

Is it worth running on emu instead?


^ Good point
