The Impossible Quiz Mobile 100% Speedrun in 4:06
NOTE: Glitches are allowed in this category. If you want to see me do a glitchless run then I might do it. I explain the rules I played by and the glitches I used if you open the description.

100% for this game means to complete all 110 questions as FAST as possible, that means glitches are allowed.
The mobile version of the game should NOT be compared to PC runs as there some notable differences between the 2 versions like some questions being different such as Q.108 and mechanics of the same questions being different Q.21 where you have to wait for the green option appear in the mobile edition but not in the PC version.
I played by these rules:
1. Timing starts when the first question appears and ends when you reach the “complete” screen after using the final skip
2. No tools, hacks, and macros to assist you during the run
3. No speeding up or slowing down the footage
4. No savestates
5. Checkpoints ( A.K.A. Moron Marks ) are allowed
6. Glitches are allowed
-Question 68: Normally you are supposed to rub the cat until the meter on the right fills up, but for some reason you can just touch the neck of the cat for the meter to fill up. This also works if you touch where the cat’s tail starts. I think this is because as you rubbing the cat, you are actually touching the 2 different places where the meter fills up. However it saves about a second if you just leave your finger touching one of the 2 areas where the meter fills up.
-Question 84 It’s kind of hard to see due to the dark background but I actually get the shooting star from where the brown barrier surrounding the question is. This is because the brown barrier in the mobile edition of the game actually has no hit detection, unlike the computer version of the game which the brown barrier has hit detection and if you touch it, you’ll lose a life and start the question over again. This trick saves a fraction of a second over getting the shooting star by not touching the brown barriers.
-Question 106: This question is a very annoying auto scroller because if you screw up you’ll lose the run or lose tons of time. Towards the end of the auto scroller, I don’t take the intended route and skip a part of the road. This is because there is no hit detection in that gray thing I bypassed. The reason why I do this is because it’s easier to complete the question this way. This trick doesn’t save time however. It’s also worth noting that this trick doesn’t work on the computer version of the game.
Sorry for the dark background
I’ve been speedruning this game on and off since October 2015. I wanted to start speedruning this game because I wanted to speedrun all the Impossible Quizzes as I had decent times in all of them except the mobile editions of TIQ1 and TIQ2. One lunch break in school, my friend Shadow Master, had the mobile game on his phone and he let do some speedruns on it. Soon, I got the game for myself and the rest is history. The time went from 6:50.51 to this time of 4:06.22.
I’m very satisfied with the run overall because the execution was great, and no mistakes were made except for losing a life at question 96 but that lost me no time. Without any new strats, I think beating this run won’t be easy.
IOS: (Note: The game got updated and is significantly different from the one played in the video)
