Beating Super Mario 64 Without Using the A Button

Published by at 2:00 pm under Video Games,Videos


The ingenuity of devoted video game fans will never cease to amaze me. Apparently beating Super Mario 64 in twenty minutes just isn’t good enough, now some crazies want to do it WITHOUT using the A button.

It’ not like this being tool-assisted makes it any less crazy, as it’s pretty much like playing the game in stop-motion animation where you have to plan out each individual button press and see what effect it has onscreen.

For some really crazy stuff, start watching at around the 4:30 mark.

    He’s mashing A! this is just a tool assisted speed run.

    This tool is not using the “A” button. Anybody who is familiar with the game would understand what lengths the tool is going to to avoid it. Sometimes it’s as simple as pressing the “B” button while running to gain a little height. And sometimes he runs around and up hills and bounces off an enemy just to gain enough height to get a star that’s only about 2 marios off the ground.

    And to think of all the nights my friends and I spent using the A button to conquer the game.

    Can you really do that hyper-speed turtle shell turtle trick or is has this video been doctored?

    Uh……he didn’t beat it…

    Uhh…I presume the writer didn’t actually watch the whole video or even check the end? He doesn’t beat the game in 20 minutes… He doesn’t even beat the game! The video just stops after 20 stars! I applaud the player; he gets really ingenious with some of those stars (see the last mountain star), but the writer really needs to actually check his source material BEFORE posting. I was at the 19 minute mark wondering how in the world he’d make it through to bowser in less than a minute!

    Uhhh….If you can read perhaps you’ll see this isnt the 20 minute finish the game video, and he never even says it is, so read the article properly b4 whinging! God some people just whinge for the point of it!

    Uhhh…If you can read perhaps you’ll see the title of the webpage saying “Beating Super Mario 64 Without Using the A button”.

    people always try to achieve Harder challenges, it will not surprise me if some people in the future will remember a level by heart and will play it with their eyes closed.
