This is the first Donkey Kong Country 2 TAS ever. The movie aims for overall fastest completion and doesn't give a flying banana about bonus rooms. Warp barrels are used whenever possible, meaning a large part of almost every stage in the first two worlds is skipped.

The impressive thing about this movie is that the not-so-accurate hit detection in this game allows the player to squeeze through extremely small gaps - at blinding speed, of course.

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.

Webmasters, please don't link directly to the files. Link to this page or the front page instead.
