Games Done Quick Speedrunners Show Us How To Complete Crystal's Pony Tales In 10 Minutes

Continuing today's series of speedrun videos ahead of the kick-off of tomorrow's Summer Games Done Quick event, we asked speedrunner Seckswrecks to beat the Genesis classic, Crystal's Pony Tales.

Long time Replay fans will be familiar with Crystal's Pony Tales – it was our 47th episode of Replay, meaning it appeared fairly early in the show's lifespan. While exploring our video game vault for good speedrun candidates, Ben Hanson jokingly suggested Crystal's Pony Tales, and we were surprised to learn speedrunner Seckswrecks holds the record for the game at just under 10 minutes.

Join Ben Hanson, Benjamin Reeves, Games Done Quick's Chris Grant, Tony Ogbot, and Seckswrecks as they knock out the bizarre Genesis game at just about 10 minutes, as promised.

If you're unfamiliar, Games Done Quick is an annual marathon where speed runners gather in a single location, speedrun an impressive library of games at impressive speeds, stream the whole thing, and do it all in the name of raising money for charities Doctors Without Borders and the Prevent Cancer Foundation. The stream starts tomorrow, July 26 and goes until August 1, and you can watch it here.
