KoC Joustus Challenge: is Troupple King the most difficult opponent for you? I beat 8,9,10 in one go but 7 took an entire hour

Tried to reproduce Hidden by Night (Lich Yard) by Jake Kaufman from Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment in Famitracker. Here's the result (NSFPlay Synthesia).

Shortly after starting I said to myself, if they're ripping off Mario 3, they better also rip off that stupid giant fish that tries to eat you
