- Best ending
- Forgoes time-saving death
- Forgoes warps
- Genre: Platform
- Genre: Puzzle
Solomon’s Key is a puzzle platform game with an old clumsy magician who has the power of creating and destroying platforms. And through that power, he saves the world.

This movie plays all the rooms of the game, including the hidden rooms with Page of Time, Page of Space, and even a princess of some kind. (Fairy collection rooms were not included.) No warps were used. Due to those secrets, it accomplishes the best ending of the game.

This movie is almost a minute and a half faster than the predecessor movie. In addition, it marks the obsoletion of the last Famtasia movie.

Uses warps.
A warpless version will probably be coming someday.

This timeattack exceptionally contains one death. It was intentional to save time.

There are many more goals in this game than to just pass all levels... Including some secret levels. Many levels are much more difficult when you try to collect the items required for those quests. This timeattack ignores all those goals.

Uses warps and difficult tricks.
I'll probably try to make a warpless version someday.

In case you're wondering... the monster and the flame it breaths are two different objects. It's possible to jump between them.
This video could probably be improved by ~10 seconds by better planning and ~1.5 minutes by finetuning Dana's jumps. The game is quite hard, and I'm happy I got this done anyway :)

Almost all rooms were improved from the previous movie ― many of them even several seconds faster. The precise times can be found in the submission message.

NOTE: In case you are wondering, the author could have used death as a shortcut in one room like he did in the previous movie, but chose not to.
