The SNES port Prince of Persia 2 is generally regarded as a bad port of a very hard platforming puzzle game. The controls are clumsy, the puzzles are seemingly random, and the player dies very easily. The port also leaves out the last level. Fortunately there is a major bug in the game that allows large parts of it to be skipped.

In this run, Challenger beats the previous publication by 1:53.28 due to several improvements, such as new glitches and skips, as well as better optimization.

Selected comments from the author:
Prince of Persia 2 is one of the most challenging games ever made. Maybe this is because of the terribly imprecise control, the nonsensical puzzles, and the character's amazing inability to survive falling any distance. There are no pits with spikes this time around, apparently there were enough complaints about the ones in the original Prince of Persia, but unfortunately, non-spiky pits are just as deadly as spiky ones, and the new traps are far more sinister.

The SNES port Prince of Persia 2 is generally regarded as a bad port of a very hard platforming puzzle game.

Fortunately there is a major bug in the game that allows large parts of it to be skipped.

This run follows the same general path as nitsuja's run, but saves time by fixing some mistakes and better enemy manipulation. Overall about 4 seconds are saved in gameplay, but the movie is still 12 seconds longer due to more accurate emulation.

BK2 begins from savestate

A new type of Ghost Glitch that allows to skip most of the level 5! This is a good glitch, because you can reach that checkpoint before of bridge much more faster!
