Which games can you complete the quickest?

Recommended Posts

My 13 y.o. and I got into a discussion about Dragster literally being a game that last about 6 seconds. There are other games that can be finished pretty quickly (without intentionally dying). I've listed some examples we thought of below...

 

Dragster - 6 seconds

Fire Fighter - can be a few seconds (it's pretty easy to save the guy in one building games)

Superman - not sure I'd officially count this but isn't there a trick that allows you to not have to recover the bridge?

Freeway - last 2 minutes 16 seconds

I'm pretty sure some of the earlier Atari timed games last for a similar 2 minute period

 

Any others?

All three games for Activision's Barnstorming can be beaten in less than a minute each.

 

Actually there are a few Activision games that if you can beat them in less than a minute or two will get you a patch. Grand Prix and Skiing come to mind.

Superman can be done with, as low as, zero seconds on the clock by faffing about with the game select button as you move Clark.

The game clock is frozen when the game is paused, yes...but it still takes a full minute of waiting around to cycle to the Daily Planet.

I timed myself on this: I tried to complete Adventure on level 1 as quickly as possible, and did it in 1 minute and 18 seconds.

I can beat Adventure level 3 in 40 seconds if the pieces are all in the right place.  Just have to keep resetting the game until you get the right set up.  (Get the yellow key, then leave that castle and go down a screen, wait for the bat to fly by with the white key and grab the bat. Go to the white castle and right inside you will find the chalice protected by two dragons...)

 

Sky Diver is pretty fast.

 

Breakout game 1 can be completed in under 4 minutes.

Years ago the Atari.com website used to have a playable Adventure flash game with a timer that gave the player a score when you finished it.
Anyone else remember this. They had 4-6 playable games.
