Game Discription

The Goonies II (グーニーズ2 フラッテリー最後の挑戦 Gūnīzu Tsū: Furatterī Saigo no Chōsen?, The Goonies II: The Fratellis' Last Stand) is an adventure game developed and published by Konami for the Nintendo Entertainment System. It was released on March 18, 1987 in Japan, November 1987 in North America, and on December 19, 1988 in Europe.It is a sequel to the first Famicom Goonies game, which was only available in North America on Nintendo Vs. System and PlayChoice-10 arcade units. This led some people to believe that it was supposed to be a sequel to a first Goonies videogame that was widely released. The game's story centers on Mikey. His friends, the Goonies, have been kidnapped by the Fratellis, an Italian family of small-time crooks and counterfeiters. Mikey must rescue all six of his friends and free a captured mermaid named Annie who did not appear in the film.

About the run

In this run,there are big differents like change the route,there are another faster route.with this change i make this run improvement than the published run by 5800 frames(about 1m,38s)

Important information

Make sure to use the J version before play this movie because the version used is J

Tricks & Informations

1-Raison for use J version: If i use the J version i can save more frames than using the U version.Why?. In the doors,the informations writing is faster in the J version.For exemple:the first door,when i get the Hammer,the time for writing information is about 1 seconde but in the U version is about 2 secondes.By changing the version I save 800 frame (comparing with the nicovideo run)
2-Route Discription: I changed the route in order not to go for jumping shoes because going to do that much time is lost and the route that when I use the shoes is slightly slower than the used in this run.
3-Getting hit in the back by enemies: using this trick i can save 4 frames than jump over the enemies
4-Getting hit in the back by enemies+jump: using this trick i can save 4 frames in the jump too
5-Get the key holders from the enemies: to do that i need defeat 3 enemies
6-Speed jumping: the glitche is easy to do,it speed up the jump 2 more times normal speed
7-Run items
  • Glasses: Can display same secet doors
  • Hyper Shoes: this item can speed up walking.I found it in a secet door in the upward of orange cave
  • Bommerange: I use this for getting key holders by defeating the enemies
  • Diving Suit: With this item i can go to the sea
  • Key holders: Using this i can save the goonies
  • Ladder: using this item i can go to the up or down rooms
8-Change the route,speed tricks save 5000 frame

Thanks to:

  • The player on Nicovideo
  • Randil:for his great trick and his run
  • Walker Boh:for his knowledge about the route(maybe is slower)
