Rocky the Rhino is on a quest to quench his thirst, having eaten too many peppers at a jungle party. In this platform game for the Gameboy Color, the player guides Rocky to a waterfall in each of 18 levels across 6 areas.

Game objectives

  • Emulator used: Bizhawk 2.7
  • Beat the game as fast as possible.


  • It's possible to go out of bounds in certain areas of the game, but other than one spot I haven't found that it saves time.
  • It's usually faster to jump over enemies or otherwise move around them. Firing at or faceplanting them adds costly lag frames.

ThunderAxe31: Claiming for judging.
ThunderAxe31: File replaced with a GBA-mode conversion that adds 200 frames of GBC BIOS sequence at startup. All other inputs are unchanged.
ThunderAxe31: While this is a cute and simple game, it also has a lot of optimization challenges that don't meet the eye. I check all the places that looked questionable at first sight, and I could confirm that this movie is well optimized. It also beats the relative RTA WR for fastest completion. As such, accepting for Standard.
