[TAS] NES Super Mario Bros. 3 "arbitrary code execution" by Lord Tom in 08:16.23
This is a tool-assisted speedrun. For more information, see http://tasvideos.org/3050M.html. TAS originally published on 2016-01-13.
Super Mario Bros 3 is a very famous and popular game for the NES. There are normally two main ways to beat it: the quick way using warp whistles to skip worlds (http://tasvideos.org/3812M.html), and the longer way which goes through all the worlds (http://tasvideos.org/3028M.html).
Lord Tom (http://tasvideos.org/LordTom.html) goes the same route as the game end glitch run (http://tasvideos.org/2588M.html). However, he achieves total control (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arbitra...) of the game, pushing the run to a whole new level. He gives himself new powers, like the speed booster and the suit-swap, to name a few. Read the author's comments for more details (http://tasvideos.org/4961S.html).
This run was shown at Awesome Games Done Quick 2016 (http://tasvideos.org/GamesDoneQuick/A...) during the TAS block: Note: The official encodes for this run include commentary from the author. The second YouTube stream also features input display.
