Download the rom package here:

01. Banishing Racer [Beat World 3]

Check out the runs on:

- Split at the "Stage 3 Cleared" screen.

02. Ultraman Ball [Full Run]

Check out the runs on:

- Split when screen goes blank after final boss fight.

03. Miracle Adventure of Esparks [Full Run]

Check out the runs on:

- Split as the final boss blows up and you lose control of character.

Tips & Tricks:
- The quick kill on the final boss is rather easy. Just jump, attack and keep pressing right during invincibility frames to get on up there. Don't be discouraged if it fails the first few attempts. The window to kill him quickly might be a little tight, but the "trick" sure isn't!

04. Batman [Full Run]

Check out the runs on:

- Split when Batman disappears from the game screen.

Tips & Tricks:
- You can deal more damage to Joker by shooting him in the face. You see him flinch backwards when that happens. Try it for a much quicker fight then just wailing on his body.

05. Tetris Attack [Beat Stage Clear 2-5]

Check out the runs on:

- Split when "Stage Clear" appears on the screen.

06. Mickey's Dangerous Chase [Full Run]

Check out the runs on:

Check out the runs on:

- Split when the "character screen" after the third boss shows up.

Check out the runs on: ... No runs? Really!?

Since I run batgun, thought I'd clarify that you are not required to shoot joker in the head to defeat him. Shooting him in the head deals more damage, but shooting him anywhere will make him take damage.

Looking forward to see this in action since I don't have time to participate. Good luck!

Thanks for the clarification Lurk! I'll change it accordingly.
Just wanted to mention that I will be participating and have been practicing every stream. Pretty hype!
Just saw this today and it looks really cool! I'll see if I can join the race.

As a Pokemon Red/Blue runner, I wanted to point out that for the Beat Brock category, you do not need to pick up Nidoran at all. It is completely unnecessary.

Cool peeps. Be sure to mention it to all your friends (and enemies) so we have a lot of runners!
I wish I could join myself, but I'll be sure to
