[TAS] Genesis Sonic the Hedgehog 2 by Zurggriff & Aglar in 17:40.08
This is a tool-assisted speedrun. For more information, see http://tasvideos.org/3584M.html. TAS originally published on 2017-12-19.
Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (1992) was the game that introduced the Super Dash Attack. The ability, referred to as Spin Dash in later games, has become one of the most beloved features of the series and, indeed, one of the most prominent features of the speedrunning scene as a whole.
In this exhilarating movie, Aglar & Zurggriff speed their way through this classic's varied acts making good use of Spin Dashes to finish them in record time. The authors also control Tails — Sonic's two-tailed foxy buddy — to allow for even faster routes and making shorter work of bosses.
This is an improvement of 12.88 (773 Frames @60 FPS) seconds over the predecessor movie (http://tasvideos.org/2037M.html).

Every second link leads to a CamHack encode that keeps Sonic visible all the time.
