Name: Mike McFadden
AIM user name: imikedaman1985

This is my first walkthrough for any game, so be easy on me. ;)

If you have suggestions or comments about this guide, or want to brag about 
beating one of my records, please contact me through AIM. If you beat one of 
my times, please check this guide online to make sure I did not update the 
time.


-----------------------------
b. Speed Tricks
-----------------------------

Yes, I assume you already know how to move and jump. :-P

I will be referring to the following two moves by the names given to them 
here, so you might want to remember what they are.


Fast Start: Time your first jump so that you land right after the announcer 
says "Go", then hold in the space bar again for a second fast jump. You will 
be going much faster than usual.

Semi-Fast Start: Same as the "Fast Start", only don't hold down the jump 
button for a second jump. This move is used for some levels that need a little 
extra speed boost to save time, but too much would send you off the level or 
too far off course.


Jumping when possible: Jumping whenever you can will make the marble go faster 
on each jump.

Going diagonally: You move significantly faster if you jump diagonally instead 
of straight. Just rotate the camera so that when you jump diagonally you will 
head in the right direction.


-----------------------------
c. Getting the Golds
-----------------------------

Note: Many of these levels take a LOT of practice before being able to 
complete the required paths. Granted, some levels have easier paths that still 
lead to gold times, but I prefer finding the fastest routes possible without 
regard to the difficulty.


-------------------------
Beginner Levels (24)
-------------------------

---------------------------------------------
Beginner 1: Learning to Roll
Gold Time: 4.75
My Record: 3.99
---------------------------------------------

Rotate the camera over slightly before the level begins, do a "Fast Start", 
rotate the camera as you pass the first bend, and jump to the finish.


---------------------------------------------
Beginner 2: Collect the Gems
Gold Time: 12.00
My Record: 11.39
---------------------------------------------

Start with a "Semi-Fast Start", rotate the camera sideways, then start at the 
left side and work your way around to collect the gems. Start on the side 
where the goal is. The gems are aligned in a backwards "S" pattern, and when 
you are finished, jump towards the goal.


---------------------------------------------
Beginner 3: Jump Training
Gold Time: 6.75
My Record: 5.75
---------------------------------------------

Start with a "Fast Start" (get used to me saying that), rotate the camera, 
jump forward up the |>>>>| incline twice, and after the second jump you should 
have enough height to clear the left side of the platform and roll towards the 
goal.


---------------------------------------------
Beginner 4: Learn the Super Jump
Gold Time: 5.00
My Record: 3.71
---------------------------------------------

Start with a "Fast Start", but slow down when you get near the Super Jump. 
Activate the power-up and head towards the goal.


---------------------------------------------
Beginner 5: Platform Training
Gold Time: 7.00
My Record: 6.13
---------------------------------------------

This is the first tricky level. When the level first begins, don't move! Wait 
until the clock says roughly 2.30 seconds and hold up. Jump over to the moving 
platform (you should barely make it), then jump again when you reach the other 
side of the platform (as in hold up the entire time and just jump when you 
have to). You should clear the gap and roll towards the goal.


---------------------------------------------
Beginner 6: Learn the Super Speed
Gold Time: 3.25
My Record: 2.97
---------------------------------------------

Start with a "Fast Start", then simply activate the Super Speed as soon as you 
get it. You will fly to the finish. Easy.


---------------------------------------------
Beginner 7: Elevator
Gold Time: 4.25
My Record: 3.79
---------------------------------------------

Roll forward normally and jump onto the elevator. Stay near the back of the 
elevator (closest to the camera). At 2.4 seconds, jump forward. You will sail 
towards the goal.


---------------------------------------------
Beginner 8: Air Movement
Gold Time: 5.00
My Record: 4.05
---------------------------------------------

Rotate the camera so it is facing sideways, and hold left (or right, whichever 
way is towards the edge). As soon as you get near the edge, come to an almost 
complete stop, and when you roll off the edge, hold the opposite direction you 
were going before. Keep trying until you make it to the goal on the first 
bounce (on the way up).


---------------------------------------------
Beginner 9: Gyrocopter
Gold Time: 3.75
My Record: 2.88
---------------------------------------------

Start with a "Fast Start" and activate the Gyrocopter as soon as you get it. 
You will need to hold back slightly near the goal so you do not hit the sign 
above it. Alternatively, you could just jump to the goal by starting with a 
"Fast Start".


---------------------------------------------
Beginner 10: Time Trial
Gold Time: 3.00
My Record: 2.31
---------------------------------------------

Start with a "Fast Start" and just hold up and jump until you reach the goal.


---------------------------------------------
Beginner 11: Super Bounce
Gold Time: 5.75
My Record: 3.00
---------------------------------------------

Don't let the name fool you: the Super Bounce is not needed! You can actually 
do this: Rotate the camera slightly so that the goal is to the right of the 
screen. Do a "Fast Start" up and to the right (diagonally of course), then 
bounce once without jumping and hold jump again for a final jump. You will 
clear the gap nicely and roll to the goal.


---------------------------------------------
Beginner 12: Gravity Helix
Gold Time: 10.00
My Record: 5.32
---------------------------------------------

Start this level with a "Fast Start", then hold the jump button and up arrow 
the entire time. Begin by moving left slightly so you line up with the first 
gravity changer. Right before you touch the switch, start holding right, and 
hold right for the this and the next switch. After that, let go of right (keep 
holding up of course) and let your sideways momentum fling you into the third 
switch. If you are a little off of the last switch, quickly line yourself up 
and fling yourself into the goal in another record time!

Note: If you want to make REALLY good time, do the same thing as above, only 
do it diagonally instead of straight ahead.


---------------------------------------------
Beginner 13: Shock Absorber
Gold Time: 4.00
My Record: 3.50
---------------------------------------------

This one requires good timing. First off, rotate your camera sideways before 
the level begins. As soon as it starts, roll off the edge and activate the 
Shock Absorber. The tricky part is that you must hold right and NOT let go and 
time it so that you pass the middle barrier but have enough momentum to roll 
up the final hill really fast. It's possible, no doubt, but tricky.


---------------------------------------------
Beginner 14: There and Back Again
Gold Time: 12.00
My Record: 10.50
---------------------------------------------

Start this one with a "Fast Start" but hold down the jump button and the up 
arrow so that you jump 5 times. Right before you land the 5th jump, start 
holding back and don't let go. If you don't die (muahaha), hold back and jump 
the entire way back. Don't bother fumbling with the camera.


---------------------------------------------
Beginner 15: Marble Materials Lab
Gold Time: 6.50
My Record: 5.65
---------------------------------------------

Start with a "Fast Start" like usual, then jump right after you land (don't do 
a continuous jump; let the marble bounce once). You will clear the first hill 
and fly into the first gem. Before you land, be sure to hold the jump button 
for 2 jumps (once into the hill in front of you, and once more to fly into the 
second gem). Jump to the last gem, and jump once more to the goal.


---------------------------------------------
Beginner 16: Bumper Training
Gold Time: 5.00
My Record: 3.97
---------------------------------------------

This one is pretty easy to beat as long as your start with a "Fast Start". 
Roll past the bumpers and jump to the goal.


---------------------------------------------
Beginner 17: Breezeway
Gold Time: 3.50
My Record: 2.64
---------------------------------------------

This one is also really easy. Start with a "Fast Start" and don't let go of 
the jump button or up arrow the whole time. Start off by holding right 
slightly to offset the blow from the first fan, then go to the goal.


---------------------------------------------
Beginner 18: Mine Field
Gold Time: 5.25
My Record: 4.64
---------------------------------------------

This is like the bumper level, only with mines. Follow the same strategy: 
start with a "Fast Start", roll or jump past the mines, then jump to the goal.


---------------------------------------------
Beginner 19: Trapdoors!
Gold Time: 3.00
My Record: 2.32
---------------------------------------------

This is a really easy level to beat the gold time. Just start with a "Fast 
Start" and jump all the way to the goal.


---------------------------------------------
Beginner 20: Tornado Bowl
Gold Time: 7.00
My Record: 2.33
---------------------------------------------

Before you begin, rotate the camera so you are facing near right corner of the 
bowl. When the level begins, jump at the edge of the platform and land on the 
first Time Travel. Fall down then jump up the wall in front of the goal to get 
another Time Travel. Rotate the camera around to face the tornado, then get 
the two gems on the left. Roll past the gem on the right and jump up the wall 
to get the third Time Travel. Go back down and get the last two gems and roll 
to the goal.

Note: You can travel in a straight line to each gem without the tornado 
affecting your movement.


---------------------------------------------
Beginner 21: Pitfalls
Gold Time: 20.00
My Record: 18.39
---------------------------------------------

The only real tip I can give in this level is jump whenever possible, 
including starting with a "Fast Start" and jumping right before going up any 
hills. The path is linear and obvious.


---------------------------------------------
Beginner 22: Platform Party
Gold Time: 30.00
My Record: 29.47
---------------------------------------------

This level is really simple to get a gold. Follow the path normally. Heck, 
take your time! The platforms aren't timed right to need to go fast. The only 
trick is that once you get to the last moving platform you must jump off early 
and fly into the goal.


---------------------------------------------
Beginner 23: Winding Road
Gold Time: 22.00
My Record: 12.83
---------------------------------------------

This level is tricky to notice the shortcut right away, since the Super Jump 
power-up seems to be required to clear the large gap right after the power-up. 
However, you don't even need to pass the gap! Follow the path normally until 
you get the Super Jump. Turn around and roll down the hill again. At the 
bottom of the hill, jump towards the platform that has the goal and activate 
the Super Jump right after jumping. You should barely be able to make it to 
the platform. After that, just roll to the finish!


---------------------------------------------
Beginner 24: Grand Finale
Gold Time: 1:00.00
My Record: 46.81
---------------------------------------------

Start this level with a "Fast Start", then roll down the ramp ahead. Roll 
straight into the tornado and it should launch you into the air. Start holding 
back a second or two later to get the gem in mid-air and the gem on the next 
platform.

Turn the camera around and head back to the tornado. This time, get the gem to 
the upper-right of the tornado, then get the other one on the other side. Roll 
up the ramp that has the Super Bounce at the top, but get the gravity switch. 
Hit the next gravity switch after that and use the Super Speed to shoot to the 
gem. Follow the path around until you end up next to a Gryocopter.

Rotate the camera so that the gyrocopter is on the right side of the screen, 
then get on the opposite side of the platform. The trick here is to roll 
diagonally while jumping once, getting the gyrocopter, and jumping at the edge 
of the platform to land on the platform you would normally need the gryocopter 
to reach.

Get the gem up here, then jump down and enter the tunnel with all those mines. 
Get the gem in the middle, then activate the gyrocopter right before the 
upward ramp and the end. Jump when you hit the ramp and you should fly pretty 
high up.

Maneuver over to the final gem (it's to the right). After this, rotate the 
camera to face the two fans, drop down to the main platform, then drop off the 
left side of this platform and land in the tunnel that has the goal in it (we 
are skipping the Shock Absorber path).



-------------------------
Intermediate Levels (24)
-------------------------

---------------------------------------------
Intermediate 1: Jump jump jump
Gold Time: 5.00
My Record: 4.71
---------------------------------------------

When you first begin, go left, then jump forward once and jump again right 
before the wooden incline. You should have just enough speed to get all 5 Time 
Travels. If not, start over.

When you get all 5 in one shot, quickly turn around and go up the other wooden 
incline leading to the 6th Time Travel, giving you 30 free seconds! Turn 
around and head up the incline there, and jump at the end to get the first 
gem. Keep going forward and turn around and head up the incline that takes you 
to the top of the box. Get the second gem up here.

Fall down off the side of the box that is near the other incline, and go 
underneath the incline for the third gem. Now turn around and roll up the 
incline (don't jump at the end) for the 4th and final gem. Now roll to the 
goal!


---------------------------------------------
Intermediate 2: Monster Speedway Qualifying
Gold Time: 36.00
My Record: 25.04
---------------------------------------------

I like this level because I don't follow directions. When the level first 
begins, turn the camera completely around. We are going to do this level 
backwards! Keep jumping whenever possible, and don't be afraid to cut across 
the grass. Jumping on the grass does not slow you down. Just go around and get 
all the gems and finish!


---------------------------------------------
Intermediate 3: Skate Park
Gold Time: 47.00
My Record: 43.08
---------------------------------------------

Rotate the camera before the level begins so that you are facing the small 
pool. Try to get all 3 gems in one motion by rolling onto the first gem, 
bouncing onto the second one (in the middle) and rolling out while getting the 
third gem. Head over to the second pool and get the 3 gems there. Now head 
over to the quarter pipes while picking up the one gem on top of the nearest 
coal pile. Get all the gems on the quarter pipes (rotating the camera helps a 
lot), then get the rest of the gems on the coal piles and head to the goal.


---------------------------------------------
Intermediate 4: Ramp Matrix
Gold Time: 30.00
My Record: 25.28
---------------------------------------------

This level was hard to beat at first, but of course that's because I was 
taking the wrong path. It's a better path now. ;)

Rotate the camera so you are facing right. Roll down this hill and get the 
first gem, then roll left (don't rotate the camera unless I say so!) and get 
the second gem. Roll off the left side of this platform and get the 3rd gem. 
Rotate the camera so you are facing right, then roll forward and get the gem 
sitting there. Roll up the hill on the left and collect the 5th gem.

Now rotate the camera so you are facing right again, and notice that there is 
a gem and Super Jump to the left of the platform you are on. Roll up the ramp 
and roll off the left side and land on the Super Jump, then roll forward and 
get the 6th gem. Immediately use the Super Jump and fly up to the 7th gem.

Roll down the hill here, rotate the camera so you are facing right, then jump 
across the gap to the 8th gem. Rotate the camera so you are facing right, then 
collect the 9th gem by rolling up and off the left side of this hill. Rotate 
the camera to the right one last time and get the 10th gem. Jump to the goal.


---------------------------------------------
Intermediate 5: Hoops
Gold Time: 30.00
My Record: 27.50
---------------------------------------------

This one looks impossible to beat at first, but don't worry - I have some 
tricks up my sleeve! You can skip the first two hoops by just jumping onto the 
floating platforms and crossing them normally. Aim yourself into both of the 
next two baskets (if you miss, start over), to open up the path to the final 
three hoops. Here's the cool part - you only need to make the basket on the 
left and closest to you! Make this basket on the first shot, then roll 
backwards to the center of where those 2 platforms meet (the two platforms you 
moved with the two baskets before). Once you are in the middle, hold up and 
jump the entire time, and you will clear the HUGE gap and barely make it to 
the goal while skipping all those annoying baskets!


---------------------------------------------
Intermediate 6: Go for the Green
Gold Time: 5.00
My Record: 3.99
---------------------------------------------

If you can't figure out what "Go for the Green" or the level description is 
trying to tell you, then never play this game again. :)


---------------------------------------------
Intermediate 7: Fork in the Road
Gold Time: 6.50
My Record: 4.14
---------------------------------------------

This one is really easy when you know the trick. Start this level with a "Fast 
Start" followed by two more jumps. Jump right before you take the left fork in 
the road, then hold down the jump button and jump a second time upon landing. 
What you want to do is land on the platform above you, then keep jumping to 
the goal for a record time.


---------------------------------------------
Intermediate 8: Tri Twist
Gold Time: 48.00
My Record: 41.73
---------------------------------------------

Rotate the camera so you are facing the closest ramp. Get the gems by going 
clockwise and drop in the hole. In the second area, it may seem like you have 
to roll up the ramps to get these two gems, but in fact you can just jump at 
the gems and get them. Fall to the third area and get the gems normally.


---------------------------------------------
Intermediate 9: Marbletris
Gold Time: 15.00
My Record: 9.57
---------------------------------------------

This one is cool because I think I didn't follow the normal path again. What I 
do is go left, get the speed booster, then activate it and soar over to the 
gem at the end of the long skinny platform. The cool part is you can actually 
use the bounce-back to collect the second gem on the way down. Practice 
holding right and up in varying amounts to get the second gem really fast.

After this, collect the Super Jump that is on the ground, and use it to both 
get the last gem on the way up and reach the goal on the way down. It's really 
hard pulling off these neat tricks in one run, but it looks cool and gets a 
good time.


---------------------------------------------
Intermediate 10: Space Slide
Gold Time: 12.00
My Record: 10.61
---------------------------------------------

To be honest, I had a lot of trouble with such a simple-looking level. I 
finally was able to beat the level in time by going straight into the right 
mine on the first platform! The mine shot me to the right as I expected, and I 
landed near the right platform. That trick gave me enough time to barely get 
the gold.


---------------------------------------------
Intermediate 11: Skee Ball Bonus
Gold Time: 10.00
My Record: 3.80
---------------------------------------------

Normal Path: Roll right a little bit at the start and roll down past all the 
blockers. Jump somewhere near the end (there's no exact location since it 
depends on the current speed and direction), and hopefully you will fly 
cleanly into the top hole. If you don't get the top hole cleanly, restart. If 
you do get it, just finish the level normally.

Secret Path!: Start with a "Fast Start" up and to the right. Pass the first 
blocker, then line up with the Super Speed and pick it up. Jump right before 
the ramp and keep holding up. You should fly through the top hole really fast. 
After this, start to hold right and up. The trick is to bounce once and land 
on the wall on the right side of the level. After this, jump ahead to get the 
first two gems. Follow the path around to the third gem. Finally, rotate the 
camera to face the goal, jump, and activate the Super Speed. You should fly to 
the goal before the Time Travel even runs out!


---------------------------------------------
Intermediate 12: Marble Playground
Gold Time: 1:30.00
My Record: 59.23
---------------------------------------------

This one was surprisingly easy. Roll forward, get the Super Jump, then head 
right and collect the first gem on top of a small hill. Jump into the hole in 
the middle of the level and hit the gravity switch. Get both gems on this 
platform.

On one side of this platform you can see a single gem on the ground. Jump down 
and get it, then flip over using the nearest gravity switch (on the hill). 
Near this area is another gem down a short hill. It's hard to explain exactly 
where, but it's really close to where you first flip over. If you went fast 
enough (you should be, if not you might want to consider restarting just for 
kicks), you will see a moving platform rising up at the top of a near hill. Go 
up the hills quickly and get on the platform.

Get to the center of the platform to collect the next gem. As soon as the next 
floor appears, fall down and go to the left side and up the hill. The 
horizontal moving platform should just be arriving. Get on this platform and 
get both gems. When you reach the other side, use the gravity switch to flip 
over one last time.

Odds are you have the camera set so that there is a hill in front of you and 
the goal is to the right, but we won't be taking that hill. Turn around and 
there will be a second hill. Use the Super Jump to shoot up to the top of the 
hill, then get the second to last gem. After this, get the last gem near the 
goal and finish!


---------------------------------------------
Intermediate 13: Hop Skip and a Jump
Gold Time: 12.00
My Record: 9.19
---------------------------------------------

Rotate the camera so you are facing slightly to the right (if you are used to 
jumping diagonally, you know how much rotation I mean), then do a "Fast Start" 
up and to the left. Keep rolling and fall off the ramp. You should land 
squarely on the end of the little jump and go flying into the air. Quickly 
rotate the camera so you are facing the goal, then land on the Gyrocopter. As 
soon as you bounce from the initial impact, start the Gyrocopter and fly to 
the goal!


---------------------------------------------
Intermediate 14: Take the High Road
Gold Time: 22.50
My Record: 13.61
---------------------------------------------

Start this level by doing a "Fast Start" towards the camera. You should smack 
into the back wall, then bounce up and get a Super Jump. Immediately activate 
the Super Jump and get the gem at the top of the platforms. Quickly bounce 
down to the lower gem, then follow the path down and jump up onto the small 
ledge to get another Super Jump. Rotate the camera to face the goal then jump 
off and immediately activate the Super Jump. You will be able to land on the 
goal from here in record time!


---------------------------------------------
Intermediate 15: Half-Pipe
Gold Time: 15.00
My Record: 14.34
---------------------------------------------

Start off by rolling down the right side of the pipe, pick up the Speed 
Booster, and shoot up and collect the gem. You need to line up right for it to 
work! Try to get the other gem on the way down, but if you land on the 
platform next to it instead, you can still turn around and jump up to get the 
gem. Go down to the center of the pipe and get the gem there, then pick up the 
Speed Booster there. At this part, you have to get one gem on the way up, the 
Time Travel in the middle, and the other gem on the way down. After this, you 
can still take your time to get to the goal.


---------------------------------------------
Intermediate 16: Gauntlet
Gold Time: 35.00
My Record: 23.04
---------------------------------------------

This gold is VERY easy to get. I have no idea why the gold time is so high, 
but it is. There's no real tricks to this level - just go fast.

If you do a "Fast Start" so that you land about a half second after the level 
begins, you should jump in the middle of the first ramp. If you land in this 
general area, you can clear the moguls in 9 seconds - which is roughly 3 
seconds faster than usual. When you are up to the second floating platform at 
the end (as in you used two Super Jumps and just picked up a third one), you 
can make it to the goal bu jumping and activating the Super Jump.

Note: There is a Super Speed behind you at the start if you want it.


---------------------------------------------
Intermediate 17: Moto-Marblecross
Gold Time: 18.00
My Record: 13.46
---------------------------------------------

Start this level off by going... backwards. Don't rotate the camera - just go 
back a bit and get that gem. Now go straight and get the gem in front of the 
start. Head up the hill, and slow down to get the Time Travel. Head up the 
second hill faster to get the gem and Time Travel.

Go around the turn and get the gem there. Go along the side of the moguls 
instead of going over them. Get the Time Travel towards the end, then get the 
gem after the jumps. Go around the turn, then go up both hills and get the two 
gems there. Go left, then get the Time Travel there.

Rotate the camera quickly to show the goal sign, then line up so that the goal 
is far in front of you and the Speed Booster is in front too. Roll forward, 
get the final gem, get the Speed Booster, and activate the Speed Booster. You 
will fly into the goal just in time.


---------------------------------------------
Intermediate 18: Shock Drop
Gold Time: 5.50
My Record: 4.91
---------------------------------------------

This level is really short. Just get a Shock Absorber, roll off the edge, and 
land at the bottom without touching the wall.


---------------------------------------------
Intermediate 19: Spork in the Road
Gold Time: 36.00
My Record: 34.03
---------------------------------------------

This level is like Fork in the Road, only you have to collect gems. Start off 
with a "Fast Start" followed by two more jumps. Go up the left fork (or is it 
spork now?), then take the right fork. Jump down 2 platforms to get the first 
gem, then go back up and get all three Time Travels.

Your time right now should be anywhere from 13-15.5 seconds. Instead of using 
the Gyrocopter, I think it's faster to just jump across to the far platform 
and follow it down to the gem (the one at the bottom of the small steep hill). 
Travel back up the hill and go back until you see the first fork in front of 
you (I say first as in the first fork you encountered at the beginning of the 
level). Jump down and take the right fork.

Travel down this path until you see two paths heading off to the right. Jump 
over and take the right path, which has a Time Travel at the top of it. Get 
the Time Travel, then roll off to the left and get the third gem. Follow this 
path towards the goal, but instead jump off to the right and follow the long 
path over to the last gem.

Get the Speed Booster and use it to shoot yourself to the goal. To save some 
time, jump off the path early and jump right into the goal.


---------------------------------------------
Intermediate 20: Great Divide
Gold Time: 1:25.00
My Record: 1:11.90
---------------------------------------------

This level is almost impossible to not get a gold if you know what you are 
doing. Go up the first two elevators normally, then get all three timers and 
wait for the elevators to return. Go to the top of the level normally, then 
get both timers behind the rocks. You can save time and jump over the gap 
between the two platforms if you are going fast. After that, you can either 
stop at the middle platform after the gyro or just fly to the last platform.


---------------------------------------------
Intermediate 21: The Wave
Gold Time: 28.00
My Record: 15.67
---------------------------------------------

There really is no method to this madness, but I always find myself getting 
the gem in front first then going around the level counter-clockwise and 
jumping to the gems. The waves seem to rise at just the right time if you go 
that way.


---------------------------------------------
Intermediate 22: Tornado Alley
Gold Time: 3.50
My Record: 2.89
---------------------------------------------

Just start with a "Fast Start" and don't let go of up or the jump button for 
the entire time. Go right through the tornado and it won't do anything! (other 
than saving you from falling into the hole)


---------------------------------------------
Intermediate 23: Monster Speedway
Gold Time: 33.00
My Record: 26.86
---------------------------------------------

Start this one off by entering the pit stop on the left and collecting all the 
gems up to the Time Travel. Stop and get the Time Travel, then jump over the 
wall and get the Time Stop there too. Jump back over and get the gem there, 
then jump over the wall again to get the next Time Travel. Jump over the wall 
once more (yawn) and get the last gem in the pit stop. Follow the level 
normally (go fast of course), and collect the Time Travel after the 
second-to-last turn. If you go fast enough you should destroy the gold time.


---------------------------------------------
Intermediate 24: Upward Spiral
Gold Time: 37.00
My Record: 33.32
---------------------------------------------

Dude, I just found out that there is another Time Travel in this level! I had 
36.40 without the Time Travel, but now it's a bit easier to beat. ;)

Start off with a "Fast Start" and jump two more times. As soon as you land the 
third time, hold back and left. The goal here is to make the turn as fast as 
possible. Jump two or three times up the hill, and repeat the process for the 
next hill. You should have about 9-10 seconds now. Go around the turn, collect 
the Speed Booster, and shoot up the hill. When you get to the next Speed 
Booster, slow down! If you go too fast, you will bounce back when you hit the 
barrier at the top. The trick is to go fast enough to make it up, but slow 
enough to barely pass beneath the barrier.

After you make it this far, immediately start jumping up the hill while 
rotating the camera sideways. When you get to the top, jump over to the first 
Time Travel and jump to the right. You should land before the next Time 
Travel, so jump again to get that one. Hold back and rotate the camera to 
continue. Get the Speed Booster and shoot up the next hill. Slow down at the 
top! Get the Time Travel behind the wall here (that's the one I just found!), 
then get the Super Jump. Clear the wall using the Super Jump and go up both 
hills (remember to jump up each hill because it's faster). At the next Super 
Jump, you must jump before activating it to clear the taller wall. Get the 
last Speed Booster and shoot up to the goal!

Advanced Levels (52)
-------------------------

---------------------------------------------
Advanced 1: Thrill Ride
Gold Time: 30.00
My Record: 3.88
---------------------------------------------

That's not a typo - I have 3.88 seconds for this level. How? Rotate the camera 
so that you are facing to the left slightly. Before the level begins, start 
with a "Semi-Fast Start" while holding up and left. Roll to the very edge of 
the platform and jump off. You should clear the blocker!

The trick now is to hit the slanted part of the purple winding path (how the 
entire path is slanted on either side to avoid falling off). Bounce off the 
slanted part and it should bounce you into the goal!


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 2: Money Tree
Gold Time: 1:03.00
My Record: 1:01.26
---------------------------------------------

Start with a "Fast Start" and collect the gem on the left side of the level. 
Get on the elevator as fast as you can, and when it reaches the top, get the 
gem and go right. Collect the gem on the platform to the very right, then go 
back and get the gem on the ramp-like thing (looks more like a thorn).

It is very important that you collect these gems really fast, because now you 
must get on the moving platform before it leaves! If you made it in time, get 
the two gems along the way, then jump off early and get the gem on the other 
side. Go back to the middle of the tree and underneath one of the platforms 
resides another gem.

Go up onto the platform you were just under and wait for the moving platform 
to arrive. Get on it, then jump off onto the platform above as soon as 
possible. Get the gem before the part that shoots you skyward, then get on the 
launcher and try to get the last gem and to the goal as soon as possible.


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 3: Fan Lift
Gold Time: 14.00
My Record: 12.82
---------------------------------------------

It took me long enough to find a faster and easier way to beat this level. For 
the first two fans, you can just jump over the fan really fast, bounce hard 
off the wall, and keep holding up and the fan will lift you all the way up. 
For the third one, repeat the process only rotate the camera beforehand so 
that you are facing the wall. Climb the last one normally and head to the 
finish.


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 4: Leap of Faith
Gold Time: 12.00
My Record: 8.77
---------------------------------------------

This level is a bit tricky. Start with a "Fast Start", then collect the Super 
Jump, jump forward, and activate it. Try to get as far as you can on the 
initial jump and bounce (I can make it to the end after the bounce), then get 
the gem and fall onto the Shock Absorber without wasting any time. Land on the 
final platform and roll to the goal.


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 5: Freeway Crossing
Gold Time: 8.00
My Record: 5.51
---------------------------------------------

This one looks intimidating but is actually very simple. Start with a "Fast 
Start", then just keep jumping to the goal!

Note: It seems that if you restart this level, one of the blocks is twice as 
wide as usual, which messes up the run. If you do not beat this level the 
first time, exit then reload the level.


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 6: Stepping Stones
Gold Time: 24.00
My Record: 20.66
---------------------------------------------

This will be hard to explain due to the non-linear structure of the level, but 
I will sure try. Roll off the starting platform slowly and collect the first 
gem. Rotate the camera to the right then fall off. The plan is to land at the 
bottom of the level (near the red honeycomb platforms), then bounce up to the 
lowest gem.

After that, roll off this platform and get the Super Jump below. Roll up to 
the tall wall, jump, then activate the Super Jump. You should go high enough 
to barely clear the platform that has a gem on it. There is platform right 
next to this one that has another gem. Roll off the side of this platform and 
get the final gem.

There should be a Super Jump on this same platform, so get it and activate it. 
You should jump up to another platform with a Super Jump. Turn the camera 
around, then jump and activate the Super Jump. You can easily jump to the goal 
from here to save time.


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 7: Obstacle Course
Gold Time: 14.00
My Record: 6.74
---------------------------------------------

Normal Path: Start this one with a "Fast Start" and climb both ramps. At the 
next part, jump off to clear the blockers, and jump again as soon as you land. 
You should be able to land on the launchers at the end of the level. Quickly 
find a launcher to hit you up to the first Super Jump, then use that Super 
Jump to shoot up to the second one, then use that one to shoot to the goal.

New Secret Path! This is very hard to pull off, but it gets easier with 
practice. Before the level begins, quickly rotate the camera so you are facing 
directly to the left, then rotate the camera left just a little more. As soon 
as you finish rotating the camera, hold up and right at the same time. Time 
your first jump so that you jump a little bit after the announcer says "GO!", 
then keep holding the jump button. Right before you land after the first jump, 
let go of the right arrow. Since you are still holding the jump button, you 
will do a second jump very quickly towards the bottom of the steep ramp. If 
completed correctly, you will land on the platform at the bottom of the ramp!

If you made it this far, hold down and left to slow down a bit (although you 
won't be able to slow down much), then try to continue towards the pistons 
without stopping. Jump onto the pistons and try to get hit up to the first 
Super Jump immediately. Try to land on top of the Super Jump, then activate it 
as soon as you bounce up from the initial impact. Activate the Super Jump, and 
you can fly all the way to the goal from there!


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 8: Points of the Compass
Gold Time: 13.00
My Record: 9.03
---------------------------------------------

This one is hard if you aren't good at managing the spin on the ball when 
landing. Start this one off by rotating the camera to face the platform on the 
right. When the level begins, jump over to the first gem by jumping on the 
middle of the thin blue line. Quickly rotate the camera to see the platform 
that was behind you when the level first began, then jump over to the second 
gem by using the moving platform in the corner.

Slower but Easier: Rotate the camera to face the starting line and jump over 
to the platform that is just passing the start. Roll onto the starting line, 
then jump over to the last gem using the same technique as for the first. Wait 
for a platform to come by and jump across it to the goal.

Faster but Harder: Rotate the camera to face the last gem, then jump over to 
it by jumping on the corner of the middle purple railing. Repeat the process 
to get to the goal.


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 9: Three-Fold Maze
Gold Time: 38.00
My Record: 36.00
---------------------------------------------

Fortunately, this level is quite easy when you know the path (it took me a 
while to find it). Start off by rolling off the left side of the platform and 
getting the gem at the bottom of the level. Go toward the camera, then go up 
the ramp. Hit the first Gravity Switch and you should be on a red platform.

The next gem is on the other side of the wall with the Gravity Switchers, so 
what you want to do is try to go AROUND the right side of the wall. This is 
necessary to save time. The gem is at the end of this long path of course (you 
did beat this level many times before, right?).

After that, go left, then jump up the ramp (jumping once before the ramp and 
once when you land seems to be the fastest). After that go up one more ramp, 
which should be in front of you. Without stopping, jump forward and left off 
the side of this platform. You should be heading toward an upward yellow ramp 
next to another downward ramp with two gravity switches on it. The trick here 
is to bounce off the upward ramp and land on the left side of the downward 
ramp. If you do this, roll down the ramp and hit the gravity switch. You will 
end up in front of the last gem. Get this gem, then jump up and to the right 
to reach the goal.


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 10: Tube Treasure
Gold Time: 45.00
My Record: 43.87
---------------------------------------------

Goodness, I absolutely hate this level. It took me at least 300 attempts to 
get gold. Here's my path:

Start out by getting the Speed Booster, then going towards the camera. Get the 
gem behind the start then activate the Speed Booster to shoot forward (albeit 
slowly) to the Super Jump ahead. Quickly go up the half pipe ahead and get the 
gem. Go left, get that gem, then make the big jump over to the gem in the 
other half pipe.

Instead of going into the pipe on the right, go left to the very other side of 
the level. I don't know why, but I couldn't get gold by going down the closer 
tube. Anyways, when you fall down the tube on the opposite side of the level, 
try getting the gem on the way down while turning the camera around 180 
degrees. Don't bother with the Super Jump there since you already have one 
from before.

Try to get the gem at the end of the second pipe (on the way out) without 
slowing down; just jump into it. When you exit the tube, try to bounce onto 
the gem on the left. If you miss it, you'll be pressed for time at the end, 
but it is possible to get it on the way back.

Continue forward into the pipe ahead and BE CAREFUL! I died so many times 
trying to get the next gem. To get it, use the Super Jump at the middle of 
where the two tubes meet, then shoot up to the gem. Try not to die on the way 
down of course.

After you get that gem, go towards the goal and go up the unexplored tube near 
it. There is a gem at the end; get it, then roll down the tube quickly and 
head to the goal. Since the goal is actually to the side of the last tube, you 
will have to roll to the opposite side of the tube towards the end then roll 
back to get some momentum towards the goal when you exit. If you miss the goal 
on the way down, you will probably miss the gold time when trying to 
completely turn around, so don't miss!


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 11: Slip 'n Slide
Gold Time: 10.00
My Record: 6.57
---------------------------------------------

As if the shortcut couldn't be any more obvious. :-P

Rotate the camera to the right and start with a "Fast Start" jump again when 
you land to clear the gap, then just jump to the finish. Easy.


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 12: Skyscraper
Gold Time: 1:30.00
My Record: 1:29.09
---------------------------------------------

Wow, this is by far the slowest I have ever gone during a speed run. The only 
trick you need to keep in mind is this: go around the skyscraper at the 
beginning (counter-clockwise), get the two Time Travels, then get the Super 
Jump.

Get on the first elevator when it comes down like you would normally, then get 
on the next elevator and get the gem. Use the Super Jump to jump up to the 
left side of the skyscraper to get the next gem, then just beat the level 
normally! You don't even have to go fast since the elevators are so slow.


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 13: Half Pipe Elite
Gold Time: 25.00
My Record: 23.94
---------------------------------------------

Phew, this one takes practice but it's fun when you get the hang of it!

Start this one by rolling off the platform and bouncing halfway between the 
Speed Boost and the edge of the half pipe. Start to hold back and rotate the 
camera about 45 degrees to the right. When you get the Speed Boost, activate 
it and try to get the gem in between the half pipes. If you go over it, you 
went too fast, and if you go under it, you went too slow.

Once you get the gem, quickly rotate the camera around and try to land at the 
very top of the half pipe. When you do this, roll down about halfway to the 
bottom and start jumping after that. You should pick up a LOT of speed. Stay 
to the right side of this half pipe (assuming you are facing the side that has 
the starting platform), and you should be going fast enough to get the second 
gem up here. Rotate the camera to face straight down while holding left.

Repeat the trick with landing at the top of the half pipe and jumping across 
to the other side to soar up to the other side. Try to get the gem on the way 
up and land on the next thin half pipe. Repeat the trick again on this half 
pipe to get the gem high up in the air.

Note: If you don't jump high enough on this gem, you can activate the Speed 
Boost in mid-air and it will act almost like a Super Jump!

After this, roll down to the other side of the half pipe and transfer to the 
final one. Do the jumping trick on this half pipe while getting the last gem 
to make it to the goal!


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 14: A-Maze-ing
Gold Time: 8.00
My Record: 3.69
---------------------------------------------

Ahh, don't you love it when the gold time is REALLY easy to get? To beat this 
level quickly and easily, start off by rotating the camera so you are facing 
the goal. Hold up and right while the countdown begins, and do a "Semi-Fast 
Start" up and to the right. When you land, try to hit the wall in front of you 
without touching the wall on the right, then keep holding up and jump. You 
should be able to barely land on the wall on the right. Once you make it, just 
roll to the goal!


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 15: Block Party
Gold Time: 1:00.00
My Record: 34.48
---------------------------------------------

Start off by getting the gem in front of you, then rotate the camera so you 
are facing left. What you want to do (to save time) is to line up against the 
edge of the block, then head towards the right side of the right gravity 
switcher. Right before you touch the switch, tap left. You should flip over 
and get the gem! If you don't get it, don't worry - you will get a second 
chance later.

After getting the gem, rotate the camera so you are facing left and hit the 
gravity switch there. It will flip you onto an orange platform. Get the gem on 
here then jump down to the purple platform and get the gem down there.

After that, turn the camera completely around and hit the gravity switch that 
flips you onto the orange platform again. Get this gem, then hit the switch 
that flips you onto the purple platform again. Jump down to the starting 
platform (the green platform).

Hit the gravity switch again that flips you over (if you didn't get that gem 
from before then try again). This time, hit the gravity switch that flips you 
over completely. Get the gem on this platform, then jump down to the blue 
block. Get this gem then jump onto the long gray platform below. Finish the 
level normally by getting the two gems and falling down to the goal.


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 16: Trap Door Madness
Gold Time: 6.50
My Record: 5.81
---------------------------------------------

This one was harder to beat than I expected, but that's because I was doing 
the wrong thing. Start this level with a fast start and roll right into the 
first gem. Keep rolling and get the second gem (near the goal). Right after 
this, quickly jump backwards towards the third gem on the right side of the 
level. Turn around again (keep jumping!) and head to the goal.


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 17: Moebius Strip
Gold Time: 23.00
My Record: 9.49
---------------------------------------------

Normal Path: Phew, this one was really hard to beat. Why? Well, for one it's 
just hard to go around the corkscrews fast without dying. Secondly, the level 
seems to crash... a lot! It really sucks, but the trick is to try not to skip 
any gravity switches along the way.

When I got the gold time in this level, I took a "shortcut" by jumping over 
the first corkscrew and just falling down to the gem. I put shortcut in quotes 
because it takes just as long to complete, but I prefer taking that route 
because it's easier to jump down than it is to loop around the corkscrew fast 
enough without dying.


New Secret (and easy) Path!: Turn the camera around to face the goal during 
the countdown, then roll forward and off the left side of the platform. Land 
below and take the gravity switches around to get the gem. After getting the 
gem, slow down and head back toward the camera a little. The goal should now 
be directly below you. Get on the left side of the platform and rotate the 
camera so the goal is to the up and right. Slowly drop off the side of the 
platform and hold up and right to bounce off the sign above the goal and 
finish this hard level quite easily!


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 18: Great Divide Revisited
Gold Time: 1:05:00
My Record: 1:00.47
---------------------------------------------

Start with a "Fast Start" and jump two more times (for a total of three 
jumps). Get to the left side of the floor and jump right before the first 
ramp, then jump again as soon as you hit the ramp. You should barely land on 
the leftmost moving platform.

Go up using this platform and get on the first platform that appears in front 
of you. This platform will take you to another platform with three Time 
Travels on it. Get the Time Travels then turn the camera around 180 degrees 
and roll off the left side of the platform. You should land on a platform that 
is moving upwards.

Roll forward off the ramp once you see another platform appear ahead. This 
platform will take you up to the next "mountain." Take you time going up both 
ramps, then wait for the moving platform to come down. Rotate your camera to 
face the right so that the next mountain is on the left side of the screen.

Get on the moving platform and wait for another platform to appear on the 
right side of the screen. Get on this platform, then rotate the camera so you 
face the mountain. Wait for two platforms to pass by, then get on the third 
one by rolling off the upper-right corner of the current platform. This will 
take you up to the next mountain.

Collect the two Time Travels - one behind the rock on the left, and one over 
the gap in the boards between the mountains. Get the Super Bounce and rotate 
the camera so that you are looking straight down at the ground. Roll off the 
platform and activate the Super Bounce. There will be a purple platform below.

Land in the exact center of the purple platform (made easier by the camera 
angle) and collect the Time Travel. Repeat the process one more time on the 
next platform and land on the goal.


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 19: Escher's Race
Gold Time: 48.00
My Record: 43.45
---------------------------------------------

Flip over at the beginning using the gravity switch, then you will see a wavy 
purply path ahead of you. Save time by jumping over the corners of the path 
and head up the first yellow ramp you see. There should be a Gyrocopter and a 
gem up here. Get the gem, then head back down the same path you just came from.

When you reach the area where you began, roll off the side and land on a 
hidden platform with a gem and a gravity switch. Get the gem, then flip the 
gravity switch. You will now be on a brown platform with two paths, left and 
right. Take the left one (the one that doesn't have the downward ramp at the 
beginning).

You should now be at a long straightaway. Roll down the path as fast as you 
can, then jump at the end. The trick here is to jump over the ramp and the 
platform it connects to and bounce off the yellow platform beneath (right 
before a yellow ramp thing). Right after bouncing off this area, hold straight 
and the jump button. You will hit off the ramp and fly into the air. Hold left 
and try to land on the yellow platform next to it.

Follow this yellow platform to the end and roll off the end to reach a 
platform with a gem and a gravity switch. Get the gem, but this time head 
right. There should be a red wall with two gravity switches. Hit the left one, 
which will flip you onto the red platform. Without skipping a beat, jump off 
the front of the red platform. There should be another red platform down below 
with a path going straight, a path going left, and a ramp where the two paths 
meet. You should be able to jump and land after the ramp.

Follow the path straight and turn around. You should see another ramp with two 
gravity switches. Hit the one on the left to flip onto the brown platform 
(make sure you have around 38 seconds here!). This platform has a gem and 
gryocopter. Get the gem then rotate the camera to the left so you see a red 
vertical platform with a gem on it. Get the gryocopter and use it to float 
over to the gem. You will bounce slightly off the wall and slowly fall 
underneath the platform. But wait... what's this!? It's the goal on the red 
platform too! Since you are still hovering with the gyrocopter, quickly fly 
over to the goal and beat the level sideways!


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 20: To the Moon
Gold Time: 9.00
My Record: 4.39
---------------------------------------------

Don't you love levels that look REALLY hard but the gold time is REALLY easy 
to get? For this level, simply rotate the camera slightly so that when you 
hold up and right at the start, you will be heading directly towards the 
gravity switch. After you rotate the camera, start with a "Semi-Fast Start" 
and jump immediately after you do the little bounce. You should barely land on 
one of the moving platforms, then jump once more. If you are lucky, you will 
land on the platform with the gravity switch! You know what to do from here.


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 21: Around the World in 30 seconds
Gold Time: 13.50
My Record: 11.82
---------------------------------------------

If you know how to beat this level, just beat the level fast. There aren't any 
"secrets" you need to know about.


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 22: Will o' Wisp
Gold Time: 25.00
My Record: 22.38
---------------------------------------------

Dude, this level was hard! Fortunately someone found a nice little shortcut to 
bring my 24.92 down to a lovely 22.38.

While the countdown begins, rotate the camera to face left, then rotate it to 
face the ground. Roll to the right and slowly roll off the edge. You should 
see a gem on a platform far down. The trick here is to start getting some 
forward spin when you land on the gem, and you will bounce over to a small 
path. Bounce once off this path and hopefully you will land on a wider path.

Follow this path to the end while collecting the gem at the beginning. Make 
sure to remember the areas where the marble inexplicably flies into the air, 
because you will need to jump over those spots to save time. At the end of 
this path there will be a smaller path heading to the left. Drop down off the 
right side and land on the smaller path, then roll under the overhang and pick 
up the gryocopter. Follow this path to the end, but be careful at the end 
because you will bounce slightly. Get the Time Travel carefully, then jump 
over to the other Time Travel on the next platform (make sure you have slight 
right-spin to avoid falling off).

Make sure you have roughly 21 seconds at this point.

Follow this path down to another Time Travel and the third gem. Slow down 
slightly before getting the gem then jump and activate the gyrocopter. Hover 
over to the circular platform ahead and land on the purple button. Quickly 
jump over to the next circular platform. As soon as you see the final gem 
appear on the thin pathway, jump on it and immediately jump over to the last 
circular platform. If you miss, you will have to start over! After this just 
wait for the goal to appear and you're finished!


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 23: Twisting the night away
Gold Time: 48.00
My Record: 44.41
---------------------------------------------

Rotate the camera so you are facing the gem on the left, then begin with a 
"Semi-Fast Start". Get the gem in front of you then swing right to get the 
second gem. Go up the stairs on the right, then get both gems on this platform.

Get the Super Jump, then rotate the camera so you are facing the two tornados. 
Jump a few times to pick up speed and run right into one of the mines. With 
any luck, you will land up in the center of the next platform.

Get this gem, then head left. Carefully navigate past the moving blocks (I 
take the left side), and get the gem in the middle of the next platform. Use 
your Super Jump to soar over to the final platform, then get those gems and 
finish!


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 24: Survival of the Fittest
Gold Time: 37.00
My Record: 32.33
---------------------------------------------

I've heard a lot of bad things about this level, but don't worry - it's not 
too hard to beat it when you know the tricks!

Start this level with a "Semi-Fast Start", then quickly rotate the camera 180 
degrees as soon as you touch the platform. Line up with the Time Travel on the 
left, then do three quick jumps in a row to jump over all three bars. Rotate 
the camera 180 degrees again, then jump up all three stairs. Get on the left 
side of the stairs and jump onto the moving platform when it appears.

When the platform is close to the next ramp, jump to the left side of the ramp 
and immediately jump again and land on the other ramp to the left (where a 
Time Travel is sitting). Get this Time Travel, and rotate the camera so you 
are facing the tornado. Do you hate this part? You won't anymore!

As soon as the moving platform appears, get on it and hold up and right. You 
will charge at the next ramp fairly quickly (since moving diagonally makes you 
go faster), then simply jump and land on the next ramp. This trick skips the 
tornado altogether!

Get on the moving platform again when it appears, then get the Time Travel on 
the bar at the end. The moving platform will move right, then forward again. 
There is still one more Time Travel at the end, behind the second gray pole 
(also known as the last pole). To get this Time Travel, stay towards the front 
of the platform as you navigate the poles, then quickly hold back then left or 
right (whichever way moves towards the pole). After this, just jump to the 
goal!


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 25: Plumber's Portal
Gold Time: 35.00
My Record: 28.85
---------------------------------------------

Rotate the camera so you are facing the left side of the green pipe. Begin 
with a "Fast Start", then bounce once to land on the gem. Quickly jump into 
the pipe and get the Super Jump.

Go back to the entrance of the pipe you just entered, then jump and activate 
the Super Jump. You will be more than high enough to clear the pipe and the 
tall wall ahead. There should be a gem in this area. Turn around and jump back 
into the pipe you entered at the beginning of the level.

Take the left path in this pipe, then go left again. When you flip over and 
exit out of the pipe, go right. There is one gem here and another forward and 
to the right. When you collect the final gem, you will be able to see the goal 
from here. Jump towards the goal, then activate the Super Jump to make it to 
the upside-down goal!


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 26: Siege
Gold Time: 2:00.00
My Record: 1:22.62
---------------------------------------------

This gold time is WAAAAAAY too high! Oh well, it works out well for us. ;)

Go forward from the beginning and get the Shock Absorber (you might need it), 
then head left and enter the launcher. It should shoot you all the way to the 
top of the level. There will be a platform near the top with a Time Travel and 
a gem. Get the Time Travel if you wish (by landing on it and bouncing over to 
the gem), then collect the gem.

Get on the right side of this wall, then jump around the right side of the 
castle to land on another platform with a gem. Get back on the side of this 
wall you just landed on, then jump around the wall just like before. You will 
be on another platform with a gem.

Jump down to the middle platform with the launchers. On the opposite side of 
the castle is a second launcher. Get at the bottom of the ramp for this 
launcher then drop off the side and hold toward the castle. You will land on a 
platform with a gem. Get the gem, then drop off the side of the wall you were 
just on. There will be another platform with a gem here. Rotate the camera to 
face the castle, then get on the right side of this wall. There will be one 
last platform down to the right. Roll off and land on this platform with the 
gem. Jump off this platform and you will be back at the launcher you first 
took with 6 gems.

Get back in the same launcher as before and have it hit you up to the middle 
platform with the other launchers. Get back to the bottom of the ramp of the 
launcher I mentioned before, but this time get halfway between that ramp and 
the other blocker and drop down the side of that wall. There should be a 
small, squarish platform with a gem on it. Rotate the camera to face the wall, 
then drop off the left side and get the gem down here. Jump down and head to 
the same launcher as you used the first two times.

For this last launch, you should notice one last gem on a platform with two 
Time Travels. You can land on one of the Time Travels from the air and use the 
Shock Absorber to avoid falling, then jump to the other, then get the gem. 
Jump down to the bottom, and finally use either launcher to launch up to the 
goal.

Advanced 27: Ski Slopes
Gold Time: 18.00
My Record: 7.76
---------------------------------------------

Secret Path 1: Would you believe me if I told you I don't use Time Travels for 
this path? It's true! Start this level with a "Fast Start", then jump left a 
little to land on the next flat platform, then jump straight to land on 
another flat platform (both shaped like diamonds). After this, jump ahead and 
land on the third flat diamond-shaped platform, then jump again slightly to 
the left.

The goal here is to land on the first part of the next slope, where it slopes 
downward then upward. If you land on the part that is sloped downward, jump 
twice more and you should fly really far! You can land somewhere along the 
last slope and jump once more to finish.

This path should net you a 10.85 or around there.

Another Secret Path: This path is a variation on the first path, but we get a 
Time Travel this time. Start this one with a "Semi-Fast Start" up and to the 
right. Jump at the edge and get the Time Travel, then bounce left.

This is hard to explain, but remember the third flat, diamond-shaped section 
from the above path? Roll down the hill quickly, jump onto this diamond 
platform, then jump left. Try to do the same thing as above by landing on the 
downward-sloped part of the second slope, then jumping twice more to go flying 
to the middle of the third slope. You can then finish the level normally.

Advanced 29: Tower Maze
Gold Time: 22.00
My Record: 21.60
---------------------------------------------

I will assume that after you take each elevator, you rotate the camera to face 
the center wall. Also, I will refer to each elevator as either the left one, 
the right one, or the one on the far side (on the other side of the center 
wall).

To begin, take the left elevator, then the right one. This elevator will take 
you up two flights. After this, quickly jump onto the left one to go up one 
platform. Wait for the left elevator to go down, then jump across and get on 
the far elevator. After this, take the right elevator and jump off early to 
reach the goal.

Advanced 30: Free Fall
Gold Time: 8.00
My Record: 6.87
---------------------------------------------

Rotate the camera upwards so that you see the level beneath you. Start with a 
"Semi-Fast Start" to the left, then roll off the platform so that end up 
outside the first tube. Pass two tubes then enter the third and fall to the 
finish!


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 31: Acrobat
Gold Time: 25.00
My Record: 23.22
---------------------------------------------

This one is easy to explain, but hard to do. When you start this level, rotate 
the camera to face the Super Speed. Roll over to the Super Speed, then keep 
heading straight and go into the tunnel with the piston inside. Have the 
piston smash you into the air, then rotate the camera to face the floating 
platform that contains the gem.

Land on this platform, then get the gem and return to the beginning of the 
level. You may need to use the Super Speed to slow down (by using it while 
facing the opposite direction of your movement).

When you are back at the main platform, get inside the same tunnel and use the 
piston to smash up to the goal. The hard part is getting the piston to smash 
you just enough to barely land on both platforms (the one with the gem and the 
one with the goal), but keep trying until you get the gold!


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 32: Whirl
Gold Time: 40.00
My Record: 19.72
---------------------------------------------

All I have to say is "pretty clever". ;)

This level looks impossible to get gold at first, but there are some pretty 
darn sneaky shortcuts. Start this level with a "Fast Start" and jump before 
the hill to go up it faster. Rotate the camera to face the left, then roll 
slowly past the first bumper on the right and finally rotate the camera around 
180 degrees.

Here's sneaky trick #1: jump squarely on top of the bumper and hold left 
slightly, and it will fling you up to the wavy road! If you jump twice right 
after landing on the wavy road, you will land on the Super Speed. Rotate the 
camera to see the remainder of the path and activate the Super Speed to zoom 
around the half loop. Turn the camera around, then carefully jump over and get 
both Time Travels (or just take the long way around but it adds around 12 
seconds to your final time) and end up at the Super Jump.

Turn the camera so that the vertical wall is directly to your left, then turn 
it right a little more. Roll forward, jump, and activate the Super Jump 
immediately after jumping. That's sneaky trick #2: you will barely be able to 
land up at the final section with the Speed Boost! Shoot up the first sideways 
half pipe thing, then rotate the camera around and repeat the process. At the 
end, just jump up the hill towards the camera to beat the level!


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 33: Mudslide
Gold Time: 30.00
My Record: 16.08
---------------------------------------------

Haha, yet another trick up my sleeve for this level. Instead of dealing with 
the pesky bumpers and all that mud, turn the camera fully around so you are 
facing that steep slanted platform behind you. Roll off the main platform 
slowly and land on the Super Jump, roll towards the gem there, then jump and 
activate the Super Jump to soar over to another gem (normally the first gem 
you get). Roll down through the mud and collect the next gem like usual, then 
skip the slanted platform by just jumping over to the platform with the Super 
Jump. Use the Super Jump to fly over to the last gem, then jump to the finish!

Alternate Path: Use the Super Jump to jump to the second gem in the 
walkthrough above, then quickly and carefully jump back up to the first gem. 
After this you can jump to the Super Jump again and save about 2 seconds off 
the other path. It's tricky to do, but it's possible. I took this path to get 
the 16.08 run.


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 34: Pipe Dreams
Gold Time: 27.00
My Record: 16.61
---------------------------------------------

The most annoying part of this level is having to get past all those blockers 
at the beginning of the first tube. Fortunately, I have a trick to get past 
them without stopping and getting the gem! Start this level with a "Fast 
Start". Right after landing, start holding up and left and jump again. When 
you land, hold up and right, then when on the right side of the tube, hold up 
and left and keep holding it. You should fly past the first set of blockers 
into the gem. Once you get the gem, quickly jump and avoid all the blockers!

Since you will be going REALLY fast due to missing all the blockers, start 
holding back before collecting the second gem. You can finish the rest of the 
level normally.


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 35: Scaffold
Gold Time: 15.00
My Record: 6.36
---------------------------------------------

Rotate the camera to face the left corner of the main platform, then begin 
with a "Semi-Fast Start". Jump after bouncing and hold back and right and get 
both Time Travels at the same time. Jump over to the next platform. After 
this, there is another Time Travel on a plank. Jump over to it, then keep 
jumping to make it to the next platform. Jump up all the stairs on the right, 
then jump up to the near side of last trap door (as in the part farthest from 
the hinge on the door).

As soon as the trap door begins to fall, roll forward and jump to collect the 
almost-invisible Time Travel. Jump up the next batch of platforms, then jump 
across the planks and get the final Time Travel. Finish the level normally to 
beat the gold time by a rather large margin!

Advanced 36: Airwalk
Gold Time: 1:10.00
My Record: 1:06.18
---------------------------------------------

Despite this level being really jumpy on my computer, I managed to beat it. :)

Start this level by rolling to the right until you line up with the floating 
gem in front of you. Jump off and "land" roughly halfway between the platform 
and the gem. You will get pushed up a little by the fans and start to come 
back down. Try to get the gem on the way down. After this, let the fans push 
you forward to the next area. Land on the right side to avoid any problems 
with the fans.

After this, rotate the camera to face left and get the gems by going around 
counter-clockwise. When you have all the gems, use a fan to float up to the 
goal instead of using the Super Jump.


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 37: Shimmy
Gold Time: 20.00
My Record: 6.81
---------------------------------------------

This gold time seems a bit high, don't you think?

Normal Path: Start with a "Fast Start", then jump twice on the first mudslide, 
once on the second one, then however many you need for the rest. It's quite 
simple as long as you keep jumping.

New Secret Path!: Rotate the camera to face the middle portion of the second 
mud slide, roll back when the level first begins, then stop at the corner of 
the main platform. Roll up and to the right and immediately press jump when 
you begin rolling. You should land at the other corner of the platform. 
Immediately jump again and you should land on the final platform! Hold back 
and left to slow down, then finish the level normally.

Advanced 38: Path of Least Resistance
Gold Time: 30.00
My Record: 10.95
---------------------------------------------

Rotate the camera to face the left corner of the main platform, then start 
with a "Semi-Fast Start". Jump up both muddy ramps by landing on the edges of 
the ramps and immediately jumping again. Head up the ramp on the right, then 
jump across to get a Time Travel. Finish the level normally (there is only one 
path now).


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 39: Daedalus
Gold Time: 30.00
My Record: 20.24
---------------------------------------------

Follow the blue path up to the intersection, then go left and take the blue 
path up to the gem. Go left again, then jump up the muddy ramp to get the Time 
Travel. Head right up the blue path, then you will be able to see a small blue 
ramp and a gem in the middle of the starry platform. Roll towards the blue 
ramp then jump as soon as you start to roll up it. Land on the starry platform 
below.

The reason I had to jump after hitting the ramp is because you jump higher and 
slower, which is necessary since you can't slow down on the starry platform. 
After getting the gem, drop down the side to land on a muddy platform with a 
Time Travel. Get the Time Travel and roll down the blue platform to the end.

Take the right path and jump up the muddy ramp. Get the gem, then head 
straight into the starry platform. The trick in this part is to jump as soon 
as you get the Time Travel, then immediately jump again when you hit the 
upward ramp. You will jump up and come to an almost complete stop on the next 
muddy section. Get the gyrocopter, then head up the blue ramp on the right.

Jump over to the gem on the right, then head up the ramp. Activate the 
gyrocopter BEFORE getting the Super Jump, and while seated firmly on the 
ground. Right after getting the Super Jump, jump straight and you will hover 
over to a starry platform with the final gem. Quickly get this gem while 
rotating the camera around. Right after getting the gem, jump and activate the 
Super Jump. This combination of a Gyrocopter and Super Jump will send you 
soaring into the air - and high enough to land on the floating goal!

Follow the path around until you get the Super Speed. Rotate the camera so you 
are facing the upward ramp and activate it. Jump past the blockers and you 
will end up on a long platform with a Gravity Switch at the end. Instead of 
taking this path, start jumping while rolling down the platform to gain speed, 
then make a final jump to the ramp in the distance. Jump across the pistons 
and make it to the goal.

If only we could get past the first door before it falls... oh wait, we can! 
Start this level with a slightly-delayed "Fast Start" up and to the left to 
avoid the first moving log, then jump again while returning to the middle of 
the "platform" (actually a bunch of trap doors). You can now roll under the 
falling door and save a lot of time for the rest of the level. Enter the 
elevator and rotate the camera to the right. As soon as the elevator stops, 
jump onto the wall and navigate the jumps to the next castle. Follow the path 
to the goal normally.


---------------------------------------------
Advanced 42: Pinball Wizard
Gold Time: 1:05.00
My Record: 1:01.59
---------------------------------------------

This level requires a lot of practice before getting used to the slant of the 
entire level and the camera. I will try to explain everything the best I can, 
but of course the movement is practically uncontrollable so you may have to do 
some of these things out of order.

Start this level by holding left to get hit by the blocker. You should get 
smacked around the curve at the top of the level and end up flying over to 
somewhere at the right side of the level. Since you are already at the right 
side of the level, enter the tunnel with all the Time Travels from the bottom.

Roll back down and bounce off the wall (this will be the same area where you 
exit to the goal, but at the moment there is a wall here), then use the 
bounce-back to roll up and to the left. There will be a ramp going to the 
right near here. Enter the ramp by rolling past the ramp and dropping into it 
from above. Rotate the camera to face the right so you can see the three gems 
in this area. When you start to roll down into the area with all the gems and 
bumpers, be sure to go slowly!

After you get the gems here, drop down to the bottom where there is a moving 
"flipper" on the right. This will smack you up to the top of the level near a 
group of gems in the middle of the star surface. It is vital that you get at 
least two gems this time.

To get some gems, hold up while above the gems, then roll onto the star 
surface and have it slip you down into the gems. Since you can't control the 
marble after getting the gems, be sure to line up correctly! When you need to 
get three gems in one shot, start slightly to the right of the top bumper and 
roll left before touching the star surface. You should get the top gem and two 
more beneath it. Flip the process if you need to get the three gems on the 
right side.

After passing this spot once, you will practically lose control and end up at 
the bottom of the level. When you are at the bottom of the level again, go to 
the left side and hit the three blue blocks to open up the passage to the 
goal. Use the blue triangle bumpers next to the blocks to throttle back to the 
top of the level.

Use the other blue triangle bumper at the top of the level to enter the ramp 
and get all three gems there. After this, drop down from the ramp (don't take 
the actual ramp or you'll end up at the bottom of the level again!) and get 
the remaining gems on the star surface. Finally, get on the ramp in the middle 
of the level to get the final gem and drop down through the trap door. You can 
now finish the level (the exit is on the right side of the pinball table near 
the bottom).

Advanced 43: Eye of the Storm
Gold Time: 45.00
My Record: 43.43
---------------------------------------------

Man, I hated this level. Rotate the camera to face the gem slightly to the 
right of you, then start holding up during the countdown, rock back and forth 
a few times until you get the gem, then hold backwards and the tornado should 
fling you to the opposite side of the level.

You may be lucky enough to get a Time Travel on the platform, but either way 
go right a little and get the gem in the crevice. Without rotating the camera, 
head back to the tornado.

The goal now is to fling up to the area above the first gem. To do this, just 
rock back and forth a few times and then hold up all the way when you get 
enough momentum. If you make it up there, rotate the camera to face the left.

There should be a really steep platform with a gem at the top. Carefully move 
to the left side of this platform and jump up and right onto the slanted 
platform with the gem. Rotate the camera and roll up and get this gem.

After that, roll left and jump to the next platform, then follow the wall 
around to get a Time Travel. Turn the camera to face the left side of the 
tornado. You should be able to see a gem down near the bottom of the level 
near where you are now. Fall down onto the gem and the tornado should suck you 
up again. Rotate the camera around fully and you will be able to see another 
gem high up right near where you just got the Time Travel. Rock back and forth 
again until you are going fast enough for the tornado to fling you up to the 
gem.

After getting that gem, rotate the camera around fully and jump down to the 
tornado. With any luck, the tornado will fling you up to the other side of the 
level. The last gem is to the right. After this, follow the nearby platforms 
up to the top of the level and to the goal.

Advanced 44: Dive!
Gold Time: 27.00
My Record: 16.10
---------------------------------------------

Normal Path: Right after you go around the loop in the middle, get to the left 
side of the platform and jump over the first barrier. You will miss the second 
barrier and hopefully pass through the last barrier. After this, be sure to 
slow down! At the end, it's easier to roll off the right or left side of the 
platform and land near the goal (as opposed to coming to a complete stop at 
the end like the directions suggest).

Secret Path!: Start the level normally, but when you get to the loop fly off 
the right side and immediately start holding left. If you don't go out of 
bounds and exited the loop at the perfect time, you will be able to fly right 
into the hole at the end and beat the level in record time!

Note: To get past the blockers at the beginning of the slope more easily, 
rotate the camera downward slightly to get a better view.

Advanced 45: Tightrope
Gold Time: 40.00
My Record: 39.47
---------------------------------------------

I actually missed a Time Travel on the second elevator and still got the gold!

Rotate the camera so you are looking straight down, then start with a "Fast 
Start" and jump two more times. After landing, hold back and come to a 
complete stop. You should end up right where the two tightropes meet. Take the 
left path.

On the elevator, the first Time Travel is in the middle and the second on is 
at the farther corner of the triangle.

Head down the next tightrope until you make it to where the two tightropes 
meet again. This time take the right path, but be careful because the second 
tightrope is lower than the first!

On the next elevator, the first Time Travel is on the left far corner and the 
second is in the closest corner (sorry, it's hard to explain). After this, 
line up with the final tightrope and keep jumping forward to gain speed!

Advanced 46: Natural Selection
Gold Time: 54.00
My Record: 50.34
---------------------------------------------

Head up the ramps and get on the moving platform. Maneuver past the blockers 
like usual, then get on the left side of the moving platform. Roll underneath 
the first beam, then hold left slightly and jump to get the Time Travel. Hold 
right to land on the platform, then jump over the next beam. Rotate the camera 
to the right to face the mines. Get past those, then rotate the camera to face 
the right again.

There will now be three sets of moving blockers. For the first set, get in the 
lower-left corner of the platform (assuming you are facing the moving yellow 
blocker in the distance) and pass through the vertical shafts. For the second 
set, rotate the camera to face the left and get in the upper-left corner of 
the platform. Rotate the camera to the right for the third set of yellow 
blockers, and this time get in the upper-right corner and get past the 
vertical shafts before the blockers come.

You should now be at the tornado. Get on the right side of the platform and 
roll toward the tornado until it throws you into the air. Immediately start 
holding back and left because you will be flung violently at the next 
platform. Get on the little platform on the left and rotate the camera around 
to see the main moving platform arrive.

Jump onto the platform, then get on the right side. You will be taken to an 
area with two ramps - one closer to you and one farther away with a Time 
Travel after it. Take the farther one of course, then get the Time Traveland 
head up the ramps. The moving platform should just be arriving. Get on it, and 
get on the right side. When you get to an area with platforms on the left and 
right side, take the right side.

Get the Super Jump, then you can either (a) jump and activate the Super Jump 
and fly to the goal, or (b) activate the Super Jump and get the hidden Time 
Travel in the mess of beams, then jump to the goal.

Start this level with a "Fast Start" slightly to the right. Jump to the left 
upon landing, then jump to the right side of the next half pipe. Hold back and 
left and jump once more, then jump right. After this, you can easily jump onto 
the floating platform. Jump once in the center of each of the three curved 
muddy platforms and land on the next floating platform. Jump up to the next 
platform and jump once in the middle of the first two muddy platforms. Jump a 
few times on the final muddy platform while heading to the goal.

Don't worry - this level isn't as hard as it looks. Rotate the camera so you 
are looking straight down, then get the Super Bounce and use it to bounce over 
to the next platform. Roll off the edge of the next platform slowly to get one 
gem, then roll to the right and get another one. Roll up and to the left then 
back to the left to get a third gem, then up and to the right for two 
platforms to get the last gem. Now is the tricky part.

Roll up and to the left and get the first Super Bounce (the higher one of the 
two). Activate it before bouncing off the ground, then bounce over to the 
first platform on the left. Activate the Super Bounce before bouncing again, 
then head right while skipping one of the beams. Get this Super Bounce too, 
then activate it before bouncing and head up to the left. You can make it to 
the goal easily from here.

Advanced 49: Under Construction
Gold Time: 12.00
My Record: 3.17
---------------------------------------------

At first I REALLY REALLY hated this level, but now that I just found another 
secret path, it's quite easy. :)

Normal (and much easier) Secret Path: Start this one with a "Semi-Fast Start" 
slightly to the right. Roll as fast as you can to the edge of the platform, 
then jump. The trick is to hit the corner of the beam just right so that you 
fly over the <-> sign and land squarely on the next platform! After this, just 
follow the right beam to the end, then jump to the Time Travel, jump again to 
the next beam, and finally jump once more to the next platform. Without 
changing the camera angle, roll up the plank on the left and jump at the end 
(don't worry about slowing down, the slant will make you jump straight up in 
the air). Collect the Super Jump and use it to reach the end!

Super Hard Secret Path: Rotate the camera so that you can barely see where the 
beam that goes forward and the beam that goes to the right meet. Hold up and 
right during the countdown, then start with a "Semi-Fast Start". (Sorry if I 
already lost you!)

You will notice that the starting platform has a pattern made of many little 
squares. As you roll diagonally up and right, jump right after you pass the 
last row of squares before the end of the platform. If you timed and rotated 
the camera just right, you should hit the edge of a beam and fly into the air. 
Quickly rotate the camera while still holding up to face straight. Again, if 
you timed everything perfectly you will hit the beam right before that Time 
Travel that is between the two beams in the air!

If you bounce off this beam (and got the Time Travel), start holding back 
slightly and hold right. The new goal is to bounce directly onto the Time 
Travel below to the right. Bounce once off the beam while getting the Time 
Travel, and finally land on the big platform with the two board planks. This 
is VERY, VERY hard to do (and to explain!), but I pulled it off after a few 
hundred attempts. After this, finish the level normally by rolling up the 
plank on the left, getting the Super Jump, and jumping and activating the 
Super Jump to fly to the goal... in record time!

Woohoo, another gold time destroyed. :-D

Start this one by rolling over to the moving platform ahead of you. Go right 
and flip over using the gravity switch. Turn the camera around and take the 
moving platform down one floor. Go across the beams on the left and get the 
gem (I actually jump across to save time).

There should be another moving platform ahead of you (although you may not be 
able to see it). Drop down onto the platform and rotate the camera to face 
right. Get on the left side of the platform. The moving platform should go up 
two floors. Right before it stops on the second floor, jump to the right. If 
completed correctly, you should get the upside-down gem!

After this, roll toward the camera and get on the other moving platform. This 
should take you up to another gem. After this, jump forward off the platform 
to the bottom of the level. The area you should reach has two moving yellow 
blockers and a gem on some beams. Rotate the camera so you are facing to the 
blockers, then line up with the moving blocker on the right beam. Roll forward 
as soon as the blocker turns around to move away from you. Slow down when you 
reach the next beam and head right to get the gem, then wait for the blocker 
to appear again and roll back to the area you were just at.

After this, rotate the camera to face the left and hit the gravity switch. Get 
the Super Jump at the end of the next platform, then rotate the camera to face 
the right again and activate the Super Jump while rolling right. You should 
land on a platform with move moving blockers and a gem. Roll down the left 
beam and slow down before hitting the land mine. Rotate the camera to face the 
gem, then carefully jump over to it. You may notice that the final gem is in 
front of you down on the next set of beams. Well, rotate the camera to face 
left, then rotate the camera again to face the ground. You can now jump over 
to the final gem!

Rotate the camera to the right and up to see normally again. Roll down the 
beam and you should be back at the area where you first began. Now we need to 
get to the goal, but it's upside down! That's no problem.

Roll to the left edge of the platform you are on and you should be able to see 
the goal. Rotate the camera to face the goal, then back up and roll forward 
again to gain speed, and jump toward the goal. After that, try to bounce off 
the sign that usually floats over the goal, and you will finish the level!

Start this one by simply rolling onto the platform as fast as you can. Get on 
the right side of the platform when it begins to move, and jump right before 
the first bumper you encounter to get the Time Travel. Jump left upon landing 
and align yourself with the gem. Get the gem, then jump towards the ramp 
ahead. Get the gem on this platform then rotate the camera to face the right. 
Line up with the Time Travel, then roll forward and jump into it. Roll off 
this little ledge, then jump over to the moving platform (it should just be 
passing by now). Maneuver past the blockers and rotate the camera around.

Get in the lower-left "square" of the moving platform you are on (there are 16 
square patterns on the platform). Wait until you are right before the Time 
Travel that is in between the two blockers, then roll directly to the right to 
get it, and quickly roll back to the left of the platform. Wait a few seconds 
and roll off the front side of the platform. There will be a gem down here. 
Get the gem, then rotate the camera to face the right. As soon as the blocker 
begins to move away, roll forward and get both Time Travels, then quickly roll 
all the way back. You will go down a slight hill and fall down to another 
platform. Quickly roll forward this time and into the tunnel on the right. 
Another gem is down here. Get this gem and get back onto the moving platform. 
Rotate the camera to face the blocks on the right.

Maneuver past the blocks, but be aware that there is a Time Travel behind the 
cube block at the end. Rotate the camera to face the right, then get the final 
gem on the next downward hill. Get back on the moving platform at the end of 
the hills, then rotate the camera to face the goal. Stay on the right side of 
the platform and move towards the first fan when it begins to blow you away. 
Get this final Time Travel if you want (I missed it) by using the fan beneath 
the moving platform. Keep watching out for the last blocks and jump to the 
goal!

You wouldn't believe this shortcut until you've tried it!

Start this level with a "Fast Start" toward the rock in front of you. Go to 
the other side and pick up the Time Travel. Head up the blue incline and jump 
across the trap doors. Pick up the Speed Boost on the left and jump up to the 
next platform. This next part is slightly tricky. Line up with the floating 
Time Travel in the distance and back up as far as possible on the platform. 
Rotate the camera to face slightly to the left, then hold up and right (if you 
are used to moving diagonally you know how much camera rotation I mean). 
Before falling off the platform, jump and keep heading up and right. You 
should land on the next platform before a small ramp. Jump once right before 
this ramp, and again as soon as you hit the ramp. Quickly change the camera 
angle in midair to face the Time Travel and keep holding up. You should fly 
into the Time Travel at around 11 seconds if you did everything correctly. Why 
didn't I just let you use the Speed Boost? You'll see...

Normal Path: Continue the level normally by going up the inclines and across 
the trap doors (I jump straight to the second and fourth set of trap doors to 
save time), then head past the mines and get the Time Travel. Head up the 
ramps while watching out for the first fan. When you get to the top of the 
thin ramps, rotate the camera so that you are facing the general area of the 
goal. You should be able to see a Time Travel ahead too. Here's the new trick: 
roll quickly over and get the Time Travel, then immediately jump off the 
platform and use the Speed Boost to shoot into the goal!

New Super Secret Path!: Continue the level up to the area before the 4 sets of 
trap doors. Rotate the camera to face the goal WAAY in the distance. Here's 
where the real fun begins. Jump to the second set of trap doors, then 
immediately jump to the fourth set. Roll over to the very small incline after 
the last set of trap doors, and jump as soon as you touch it. Activate the 
Super Jump in midair less than a half second later (the timing is critical). 
You will soar over to a strange jut from the mountain. The goal here is to 
smack into the top of this area, then keep holding up and left and you will 
bounce up and land right next to the goal!
