Memory: Claiming for judging

Memory: Well, there's finally no easily noticeable mistakes. There are some slow looking spots but getting the backscratcher implicitly forces some slowdown to collect all the money. However, the improvement here is undeniable and is good enough for acceptance.

It's too bad the game is still really dull. The adventure game segment is the majority of the TAS and is by far the worst part, but the platformer segment ultimately isn't anything special.

Accepting to Vault.
