This is the any% TAS of Donkey Kong Country 2. 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.

This is a huge improvement over the previous movie (5 minutes and 6.33 seconds to be exact) thanks to greatly increased precision and a multitude of new tricks, all of which are explained in detail in the author's lengthy comments. The author claims this movie took him a year to produce.

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.
