- Genre: Platform
- Genre: Puzzle
Wario Land II was the last first-party title made for the Game Boy, and was later re-released for the Game Boy Color to take advantage of the new hardware. Wario's nemesis, Captain Syrup, and her Black Sugar Gang (formerly the Brown Sugar Pirates) invade his castle and steal his precious treasure. Outraged, Wario races across the land to defeat Captain Syrup and take back the treasure.

This run beats the game with 100% completion: collecting all treasures, completing the picture panel and completing the extra time attack stage (the Really Final Chapter).

We recommend reading the author's submission text; it has a great deal of information.

This movie proves the benefit of sleeping in late. In a departure from most runs, which try to start as soon as possible, the author avoids any input for over two minutes to enable a faster route.

This Wario game is a fairly unique platformer, where you not only play as "the bad guy" but normal damage is replaced with various status effects like catching on fire. In addition, the use of these effects is needed to complete the game.

This is a 17 second improvement over the previous movie by Soulrivers.

Update 1/1/15: Now displays secret exit doors.

Displays an overlay identifying tiles in WL2, for use in navigating and visualizing glitch rooms.

Colors:

Red - Solid or unknown

Pink - Breakable

Green - Doors...the tile properties for the doors are:

0x4ECD: Mini-game

0x4EDB: Regular door

0x4F3A: Normal exit

0x4F60: Secret exit

Blue - Water

White - Platform

The text in the upper left displays the tile properties of the blocks above, at, and below Wario respectively. The first column is the RAM address where the tile ID can be found. If this is above 0xA000 then it's accessing the RAM banks (where level data is normally kept) - between 0xA000-0xBFFF is bank 2, between 0xC000-0xDFFF is bank 3, and between 0xE000-0xFFFF is bank 4. The second column is the raw tile property.
