The Tool Assist is a very popular mechanic. Speedruns using it are called "Tool-Assisted Spedruns". Here is some information about the Tool Assist.

The truthEdit

Some people think that the Tool Assist is a cheating device, which help to go through enemies, go through walls etc. Ths is not correct. Almost every emulator can do a Tool-Assisted Speedrun. Even if you think that chaet codes are used, not. Using cheat codes violates the rules of the TAS (Tool-Assisted Speedrun).
