Okay, since I can beat the level realiably now I had a look at your vid and malko's GIF.

I feel my route is easier to apply but yours are faster.

Had 13 lives in level 14 and lost them all there although I know how to beat it.

Beat level 14 on my first try this time. Died in level 21 (although that one's rather easy).

Made it to level 24. That's another that needs to be practiced.

Wow, great score John! The competition is really heating up!

Btw, since level 18 is spoiled enough already it's -perhaps- ok to spoil it a bit more with my own solution

Nice - that might be the best way to do it fast and consistently.

Well, your route is definitely the most thrilling to watch.

But seems unnecessary to have a blue blob follow you so closely.

Nice route @tsak. Not a big difference but enough to beat mine by 2 seconds

Still looking for a reliable way to beat level 24 with a perfect (reliable is the word to notice here).
PS: Up to level 24, can "perfect" all levels (but I still think you need to "have the luck of the devil" to "perfect" level 11.. - I try it more often, even if I still loose life there trying to do it. But sometimes, I have it...)

I just never try to perfect that level. Not worth it with a gamepad I think.
Also have to practice level 10 to find a perfect route.
Great score!

Thank you John

Tonight I have also perfected level 24 (finish it with 3 seconds) -> 100% safe route at each go, impossible to die (except if I play like a noodle - which, generally speaking, may happens if I am tired ).

Without saying too much, in level 10 you can take the advantage that almost all blobs are sleeping and thus will not follow you straight away if you move accordingly. I usually finish it with 3 or 4 seconds left. With this information, you can imagine my route

Tsak: Thats very close to the route I used to beat level 18, only I used to go around the second blue blob and then the third blob. I see now there is no point going around the second blue blob and then also around it again on the return trip. At the end, I like to collect the diamonds of the right and then get the rest, but I see you leave those until last. Its a great route and this level had me stumped for a long time.

Ha! When I was originally testing the game I did exactly the same thing as you (with the 2nd and 3rd blue loops)! But then the day I was recording the gif I noticed my timing was slightly worse than Malko's and I was like...wait a second! What if I did that?... and it worked

Nice! Other than that I'm wondering, so what's the max level you've reached so far guys? Anyone passed lv30 yet?

Since I search how to finish all the levels with a "perfect", I have not yet reached level 30. But I am not too far. Actually at level 27 (it's also a tricky one to find the route within the time...).
By the way, I named the level 26: "the sword hunt".

Edit: at the end of the round, I will post the GIF for level 14 & 24 to compare with you guys

Aah, lv27... I think it's around that time that I usually stop caring for perfects if I want to complete the game (even though I know how to perfect all levels). Stakes go way up from then on. It's worth noting also that from this point the score you can accumulate from saved lives and especially from perfects with really high timings vastly goes up.

Personally I'd be more interested to see gifs for solutions on these later levels (where there's havok going on). Level 14 is the real first roadblock for most players but there's only one reliable solution for the first part so I wouldn't expect much deviation.

Btw the one level both me and Alex found the most interesting/clever from the whole game is level 30.

OK then. Will stop looking for completing with perfects and quickly solve the level 29 tonight to reach the higher levels
