Author's comments and explanations:
I saved about 30 frames here with a new strategy for grabbing the black key and manipulating the dragons a bit.

You can drop the key right when it goes off screen. This is an easy opportunity to maneuver to grab it again at a better angle beacues the key leaves the screen well before the player does, meaning you have a couple frames of free movement. It is quite a bit faster to do it this way then in the published run, where the author maneuvers all the away around the key before grabbing it.

Fog: Judging.

Fog: Nice improvements.

Accepting as an improvement to the previous publication.

feos: Atari, will you marry me?
