- Aims for in-game time instead of real-time
- Genre: Puzzle
Mr. Driller 2 is a fast-paced puzzle game where you have to drill to the bottom of the level within a fixed time limit. This TAS completes the 10 stock Time Attack Driller courses of the game instead of the Mission Driller mode and the Endless Driller mode.

In this run, klmz drills through the ten time attack courses in slightly under seven and a half minutes. Furthermore, he aims primarily for in-game time, as it adds to the entertainment value and adds also to the strategy, as there are time bonuses in this mode which subtract time.

This is an improvement of 5.47 in-game seconds over the previous publication. The real time improvement is 4.10 seconds. All of the improvements came from optimizations and better routes. This also features some play-style change that erases much more blocks without losing any time.

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.
