Author's comments and explanations:
This is the first one I've done in a while... I started it after finding a huge shortcut in the Aerial Race, and ended up finding a half dozen more in the process.

Improvements

  • The 'grid' control setting doubles horizontal / vertical accelleration.
  • Used RAM Watch to monitor speed and position.
  • New trick: Using dizziness to build up enough speed to roll over narrow gaps.
  • Major shortcuts on levels 3-6. The end of level 3 doesn't count as a death.
