Thanks to:

  • adelikat for TASing this game twice and finding various movement optimizations (e.g. when going through bombable objects)

Fog: Judging.

Fog: Nice decent improvement.

Accepting as an improvement to the previous publication.

feos: People say it will be a perfect submission to test against my new multiresolution function (and other tweaks to the scripts). Letsa go!
