White and black switchback is charming probably justifying this format when compared to the S# predecessors cited.

There is crucial difference between 804 and referenced s#s. In the antagonistic play it is difficult to imagine other way to remove bishop from the corner than battery check of knight. In 804 thanks to the helpplay it is the rook doing the job. Additionally, f1 is made taboo for bK dynamically. Also the switchback of bK is present in orthodox s#s, but here the voluntary one seems nices. On the other hand, to make things in antagonistic play is much more difficult, thus the Stibbe&Zucker example is very good with true captureless 5-move roundtrip of wB.
