Super Monkey Ball: Touch & Roll for the Nintendo DS has our favorite team of monkeys rolling around in a huge mix of old familiar levels, as well as totally brand new stages. The monkeys are tasked with beating 120 levels, and they whip through these stages at higher break-neck speeds than ever before.

Taechuk, Silverbawxer, xy2_, and Gonquai utilize every trick up their sleeves to grind, bounce, clip, and fly their way through any obstacle the game can throw at them. Many of the techniques are explained in the submission text because if you blink, you just might miss them.

The authors have created an alternate encode featuring an upscaled resolution. You can watch it here.

Note: Due to poor emulation there are several instances of incorrect layering throughout most of the worlds featured in this game. A skybox visual glitch is also present during Fantascene Falls.
