Tricks:

Route choices

Route choices were determined using level editor to display the maps (and experimenting when it wasn't obivious what is fastest way).

Level comments

No level

I have no idea what causes that pause in menu (the game seems to freeze for a moment).

Canidion 1 & 2

Nothing too special... Just running, jumping, shooting.

Bloxonious 1

I go grab TNT since it allows me to use the second exit, saving massive amounts of time. Grabbing only one pack saves about a second, but means I need to grab another pack in next level (but it is worth it). It is not possible to TNT exit from below, so I need to go to that room and use it from there. The scroll time is limited by horizontal distance, so I need to get as close horizontally as possible.

Bloxonious 2

Since I don't have TNT pack, I grab one in beginning (or actually three). It turns out this level has 3 sets of very annoyingly timed/positioned flying planes. I blow up the first and second with TNT pack, but the third I just hit (I must save the one TNT pack for exit). I tried blowing up the third and getting hit by second, but that turned out to be slower. Fortunately the third is in position where I fly to the platform I need to go to if I reverse direction bit before getting hit.
I can't blow the passage with TNT. TNT hits the blocks yes, but doesn't blow them to bits in one hit.

Screenshot suggestions:

Jazz bombarding doll with rubber explosives (timecode: 146.75).

Final stats:

Length: 2:52.249 Rerecords: 1842

mmarks: Added Mister Epic YouTube module

adelikat: Good viewer response, and while the same game engine as the published movie and this submission, the level layout is different in each to warrant publication.
