What are improved

Basically this update is established on my newly discovered techniques to enter the ground and wrap to the right edge of the screen. Other improvements come from better optimizations as well as a missing wrap at the beginning of the last stage, which only requires old techniques to perform but was somehow overlooked in the previous run.

However, skipping more sections of the game leads to less power-ups obtained, which posed some challenge in the HP and potion management.

Other Comments

Thanks to mtvf1 for the encode.

GoddessMaria: Judging.

GoddessMaria: Very good with improving your previous run, klmz! The optimization level is solid, a notch better than the published run, and was also well received by the audience. It didn't drag for too long and it remained interesting throughout.

Accepting for Moons as an improvement to the author's previous movie.
