    This isn't bad if you use some of the shortcuts. I'm not nearly as familiar with DKC1 as I am 2, died around 15 times on the final save (not counting resets), came in just over an hour.

    What's the fastest average time without using warps or shortcuts?
    newbell 23 Mar 2023 09:28
    If I already finished the game. Can I start from first stage and do all again in less than this time to get the achievement or do I need a new save game? Any way to find the time im doing? If you pause the game, does the timing stop? Thanks.

    @newbell Since it's based off in-game time, I'm fairly certain you can't just run it from your completed file. Just start a new one.

    Also, idk how all "in-game time" is calculated, but if you're trying to go as fast as possible, you don't really need to know. If you gotta pee or something, just pause the emulator; that'll pause in-game time for sure.

    question here: when it says "beat all stages" does getting to the end of each suffice or do I have to get all bonus rooms as well? ._.
    GalacticSpear 4 May 2023 03:18
    Just reaching the end of the stages is enough

    All shortcuts and warps playthrough: https://youtu.be/vg2jhCHFmeU

    The time to complete is very lenient. I did it in 48 minutes without any kind of special speedrun strats. Keep in mind where the warp barrels are, where shortcuts are, and use bonus rooms that drop you off much further on in the stage whenever possible. Just hold run and don't stop.

    guys, you can use save feature its in game time. use save points as checkpoints if your not happy or make too many mistakes just load the game and try again from the save. its easy plus use the warps in world 2 got plenty of time for lots of mistakes.

    As mentionned by others, 70 minutes is very reasonable. It could very well be an reasonable achievement at 50. Only time in stages is counted, so you can go back to save whenever possible. If you check your time at every Candy Kong, aim for splits of 5/12/20/30/42/60.

    This feels like a really hard achievement, or am I missing something?
    mrmistermistermr 30 Mar 2024 19:15
    This was so much easier than the DKC2 one.
    Ended the run with 44 minutes on the clock. I did do a lot of save reloading until I got runs I was satisfied with on each level which admittedly did make the whole achievement take a lot longer than I would have anticipated. But outside of Poison Pond, none of the levels really took too long on their own, and I was able to find a really good flow for a lot of them. Shortcuts and warps also make the experience a whoooole lot easier.

    Why not making it more challenging as kraky said at the end has pass the whole game with one life in less than and hour thats a good one for a new achivement
    I remember doing it once under 50min without dying any single time it would be good to have it in my achivements
    TrashCity 20 Apr 2024 16:17
    @phantomizer At first I was a little worried about this one as well
    My time was 58:06.00

    That was with me dying a few times and messing up.
    The biggest advice I can give you is make sure you know where all the level warps are. Some levels you can legit just get inside a barrel at the start and TP to the very end.

    The biggest tip that helped me was @kiwiTaco's advice for aiming to save at Candy's under these times.
    If you mess up it's okay just reset from that last save you made. So breaking it down into sections can be much easier that way.
    5/12/20/30/42/60.

    Uma conquista bastante divetida conseguir em 1 hora e 7 minutos

    Not that I care about my place on the leaderbaord, but how does people beat ALL stages in 0:00.01?
