Author's comments and explanations:
This game is my nemesis. It contains a bad emulation bug at the boss that I wanted to fix. Two blocks are destroyed instead of just one in the middle of the ship. But, my numerous and frustrating attempts to reach the boss while maintaining the timing in the original run have all ended in failure. Until now! I finally managed to recreate the speed and patterns in the original while saving time on the last boss. Another very annoying emulation bug in a TAS squashed.

Fog: Judging.

Fog: More emulation fixes and improvements at the same time.

Accepting as an improvement to the previous publication.

feos: Hi Atari, what's pub?
