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:
  • Level 1: 2 timeunits faster
  • Level 2: 4 timeunits faster
  • Level 3: 1 timeunit faster
  • Level 4: 7 timeunits faster
  • Level 5: 6 timeunits faster
  • Level 6: 2 timeunits faster
  • Level 7: 11 timeunits faster
  • Level 8: 4 timeunits faster
  • Level 9: 13 timeunits faster (doesn't include the final boss fight, which is also considerably faster)
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.
