Author's comments and explanations:
I have made this timeattack because of Zoizite's Movie Quality Challenge. This timeattack is 56 seconds faster than Aroduc's current Karnov timeattack. Only a few seconds of this improvement are because of routing changes; the improvement is almost entirely because of faster gameplay/tactics.

This game has timeunits that are each equal to about one second of real time. Here are the improvements for each level, compared with Aroduc's movie:

Sometimes it's faster to fall than to jump because the screen's scrolling is, infamously, terribly programmed. Karnov takes damage to save time in this movie.
