Tool Assisted is a game inspired by tool assisted speedrunning (TAS), and developed for GAMES MADE QUICK??? 4. Due to running out of time, there's only one short level, but the basic TAS-inspired game mechanics are implemented, including pausing gameplay, frame advance, save states, and replaying.

The game's source is available at Github
