Author's comments and explanations:
This is a TAS of the colorized version of Wario Land II(2) for the Game Boy/Color. It aims for fastest time and completes the game in only six levels, one of which requires no input.

Emulator used: VisualBoyAdvance 1.7.2 Rerecording v17.1

Wario Land II is the second game in the Wario Land series, although it's the first in without the "Mario Land" title attached. In it, you control Wario, who can get attacked by enemies to get powers by changing form - for example, you turn into a fireball when attacked by a fire enemy. Gameplay is fairly lighthearted, as Wario cannot die.

This run was fairly fun to make. A couple notes:

This is a short and simple run; enjoy!

Truncated: Fixed the formatting, it was screwing up the forum.

Truncated: This movie does not seem bad, but I think the game is not very suitable for TASing. The waiting in the beginning is the most obvious thing, but most of the game seems too straightforward. Very few possibilities to do something interesting, or something faster than just running forward.
