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.

Thanks for the temp encode. If this game was more like those two side-scroller parts, it would be a lot more entertaining. Basically, the only interesting action is already 4 minutes into the run. But nice job improving it anyway.
Used to be a frequent submissions commenter. My new computer has had some issues running emulators, so I've been here more sporadically. Still haven't gotten around to actually TASing yet... I was going to improve Kid Dracula for GB. It seems I was beaten to it, though, with a recent awesome run by Hetfield90 and StarvinStruthers. (http://tasvideos.org/2928M.html.) Thanks to goofydylan8 for running Gargoyle's Quest 2 because I mentioned the game! (http://tasvideos.org/2001M.html) Thanks to feos and MESHUGGAH for taking up runs of Duck Tales 2 because of my old signature! Thanks also to Samsara for finishing a Treasure Master run. From the submission comments:
Shoutouts and thanks to mklip2001 for arguably being the nicest and most supportive person on the forums.
