A very important part of Nintendo's history is being presented here on our website — as a tool-assisted speedrun.

Donkey Kong Jr., along with Donkey Kong, were classic games that were played by millions of players on various consoles, including the NES, Atari 2600 and Game and Watch. The story is that Jumpman, now known as Mario, has captured his rival Donkey Kong and it's up to Junior to save his dad.

Although one would not expect a movie of Donkey Kong Jr. to be interesting to watch, except in the retro sense, this movie is actually quite surprising. The vines are cleverly utilized to move the hero forward faster than any member of the Kong family before or after this game.

This is a 539 frame improvement over the previous movie thanks to time-saving glitches.

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.
