----END OF GAME----

Question:
Do you really need PRETTY PINK FLOWER, RUBY, CRYSTAL, PENTACLE,
CURIOSITY and BABBLING FISH ? 

Annotation:
I changed some code of Universal Hero so that I had unlimited
time and air/energy. So I DID NOT try to solve this game with
limited time and air/energy. Maybe you must optimize the ways
you go.
Furthermore I changed some code of the title screen in a way
that after a key in the title screen of the game is pressed 
a new room beside the room before is displayed.
(The rooms are numbered from 00 to 7F, this gives 128 rooms.)
So I was able to draw easy a map of the whole game.
