Author's comments and explanations:
Rocky is a short but difficult game for the Sega Master System. This new run improves upon the previous submission by Cheesestringxx. Despite being only about 1 second shorter in movie length, this is actually closer to a 10 second improvement, the remaining time is taken up by the BIOS. All fights were improved.

In Fight 1 against Apollo Creed I win by KO, saving a couple seconds.

In Fight 2 against Clubber Lang I improved the strategy significantly, saving several seconds.

In Fight 3 against Ivan Drago I saved a few frames by minimizing the counts in between knockdowns.

Originally I thought I would be able to KO Lang, but it seems his life meter need to be too low before you are able to do so. The time it takes to sub-optimally deplete his life meter before knocking him down is longer then it takes to just win by TKO.

Mothrayas: Judging.

Mothrayas: Good improvement, but ultimately the repetitive strategies of this movie don't do enough to make its way out of the Vault. Accepting as an improvement to the published movie.
