The Annotated Jurassic Boy 2

New Year’s Day often begins in a confusing haze. You may not remember much of what happened the night before, nor can you explain the aftermath.

This year, for instance, I woke up to find that, during the previous night’s festivities, I had fully produced a tool-assisted speed run for Sachen’s quintessential NES platformer Jurassic Boy 2.

It’s annotated throughout. Happy 2012!

    Hope your vocal commentary on this speedrun doesn’t contain any interesting or pertinent info to the game but instead is a stream of shitty homophobic jokes!

    Of course! I don’t think they’d allow it at Speed Demos Archive, otherwise.

    I think Youtube has a bug – no matter how many times I go back and watch the sick jump, it keeps telling me to watch it again. None of the walkthroughs seem to mention this.

    Psh. REAL speedruns carefully manipulate the stack via obscure bugs in order to jump straight to the ending sequence.
