About the Game

Super Monkey Ball Jr. is part of the Super Monkey Ball series (most certainly not the best), in which a monkey inside a bubble spins around a course, aiming to either collect the bananas or get the fastest time.

In this same game has 2 modes: the main game and mini-games. Main game is just to play normally, and has 3 different difficulties: Beginner (10 Stages), Advanced (20 Stages), and Expert (30 Stages). I chose the expert mode, right there, there are 30 levels, I think there are 3 warps where I go, are the levels: 2 (to 6), 15 (to 20) and 26 (to 29). Also contains 3 levels extra, but that's not is nothing

About the Movie

This TAS I did it this because had seen in the ListOfIdeas to TASvideos, but before, wanted to know if there's a TASes, but what I found was this: TAS Comicalflop's, TAS Mechakoopa_DTTVB's & TAS Mechakoopa_DTTVB's v2 or 3. That TAS, were made on beginner, but the TAS of Comicalflop no, because I use a maximum level (Master) but people does not like

I've used the expert mode, because it's than there, I've also used warps, remember, at the level 2 (to 6), 15 (to 20) and 25 (to 29)
