Go right, and kill the polar bears. Keep at it, past the penguin, past the boxes, past the bouncy boxes, past the ice, past the mask, and onto more ice. Be careful jumping on the bouncy box in between the sheets of ice. After you get it, and get on the ice to the right, it might be easier to slide and jump right, rather then just jump, to get to the next platform. After that, you will need to slide jump to get from the snow platform to the ice platform. Then jump right, but be wary of the nitro. Go right more, and fall down the pit of despair.
Get the first checkpoint, which is directly in front of you as is always true when you switch into this view. Get the boxes to the right and avoid the mines, then get the mask to the left. Go onto the speed pads (feel the speed) then go back and forth through the electric fences. Jump over the row of mines, and the walls, while staying to the left. Hit the next, second, checkpoint. Quickly dodge the mine field of obstacles, and speed when you can so the yeti won’t injure the polar bear (and thus kill you.) Hit the third checkpoint, then jump over the walls. Dodge the obstacles, and you will reach the end.
Fall on the forth checkpoint. Go right, and jump on the TNT. Double jump on the box floating high in the air, and keep on going. Hit the nitro ! above the bear. You should now have 74 boxes. Go right more. Sliding carefully on the ice and dodging the Crunchers.
Jump on the TNT, then take the arrows up. Nab the box just after the apex of the fruit parabola. Detonate the TNT box at the left, then go up more. Take out 2 groups of 4 boxes, the 1-up box above the far right arrow, and continue up to the end.
Go right to the crystal, and make sushi of the seals. Continue right. You will reach the end of the level shortly, with a gem waiting for you if you managed to get all of the boxes.
Take out the bears, then hit the clock. Plow through the boxes and enemies, and get the mask. Keep going until you reach the final ice platform. Double-jump over the nitro, and on to the arrow box. Fall down into the black hole. When you reach the bottom, if you are going for platinum, turbo the entire time. Otherwise, just use turbo when it is safe. The first time box is right, then a mask is left. After that it’s turbo time. There is a 2 second box just past an electric fence. When you reach the walls, sprint jump immediately when you land each time to get through fastest. Dodge obstacles, and continue to the end of the section.
Go right, and jump to the 2 second box at the end of the TNT. Double-jump off of that onto the box to the right. Continue to sprint right. You can just barely make it through the last two falling pillars in one drop. After that it’s basically straight line sprinting to the end.
7.3.2 Level 12 Ace of Space

Platinum: 1:39:50 Best reader’s time: 1:39:10
---------------- Checkpoint Check ----------------
first: 18 boxes second: 36 boxes third: 47 boxes bonus: 51 boxes
Go right, and get the boxes. Jump over the laser, and the pit. Jump on top of the UFO and it will disappear. Keep right until you get to the floating platforms. It will turn green, then red. As soon as it turns green, jump on it, then double-jump right. When it turns red it also turns sideways, and you will fall off of it. Continue right, and you will encounter an armored spike. If you touch it when the spikes are out you will die, so wait for them to retract before you kill it. Hit the first checkpoint.
Go right on more platforms, and kill more armored spikes, and destroy more boxes, and jump over more lasers, and kill more UFOs. Jump right over a set of two turning platforms, and continue. Take out the switch box, and the trinity of armor. As you jump right, and land, you will notice the floor move below you. Sometimes this is helpful, like now, but most of the time it will get in the way, so be careful. Body-slam the boxes and go right. Carefully take out the slot box without disturbing the TNT. Then disturb the TNT in a better way. Hit the second checkpoint for 36 boxes.
Go right, and you will notice fruit going down. You need the super spin to do this so come back later when you have it. Is it later yet? If so read on. If not skip to the normal section.
YELLOW GEM PATH.
Go down the hole, while super-spinning right. If you are lucky, then you will land on a steel platform. If not, then, well let’s not go there. From the steel platform, jump on an !. Then double-jump, super-spin right, onto another steel box. Repeat. Then double-jump onto a spinning platform, then another. Jump onto another steel box, then onto a normal platform. Hop onto the yellow gem.
Here you are riding a quickly moving hover bike. You need to dodge the nitro and lasers, while getting all of the boxes. This is more of a mastery of timing, and experiencing what is coming up, so I will not go into much detail on this part. There are 2 masks, and a 1-up. When you reach the end, there will be a gem at the bottom. Grab it before the opportunity passes, then the end will happen automatically. You will be back at the yellow gem.
Jump on the boxes right, then use the arrow to propel yourself onto the platform when it is level. You will need to backtrack, but above, not below, in order to get all of the boxes. Jump over a laser as you are doing so. When you jump over the next one, be sure to time it so you don’t land on the spikes when it is open. Double-jump over the nitro, then take out the UFO. Continue to go right, and you will see where you went down. Now you are ready to join the normal section below. However, you need to ignore the enemies, until you get to where you came up.
Take out the armored spike, then go right. Now the floors are hindering, aren’t they. It WILL get much worse later. Hahahahaha. Sorry, lost it there for a second. Double jump over the nitro boxes, and later over the lasers. Go right, and get the 1-up if you want it. If not, then just detonate the TNT. Hit the third checkpoint and continue. Carefully take out the enemies with out getting killed until you reach the bonus platform.
Go right, and high-double jump over the TNT(press crouch first). Grab the 1-up, then go back using another super jump, and hit the TNT. Continue right, using the box to get across the gap, then smash more boxes. Destroy the row of bouncy boxes, and super high jump to get the ? box above where the left one was. Double-double bouncy right and take out boxes until you reach the mask. Get it and take out more boxes. Let the TNT blow up, then exit the bonus area.
Continue right. Time your jump across the gap so you will land on the spinning platforms when they are up, instead of when they are sideways. Don’t forget to get the crystal above the arrow box. Go right until you reach the four steel boxes. Double-jump on top of them, and jump right, you might land on the nitro ! box. If not, detonate it. Carefully navigate in the tight confines of armored spikes and orange lasers. You will then reach the end of the level.
First take out the stack of TNT, then hit the clock and sprint with all you have. Jump over the laser. When you see the 2 second box under the TNT, just jump on the TNT, then spin through the UFO. Jump right, then immediately onto, and off of the spinning, floating, platform. Jump over the stack of 4 boxes, while spinning to take out the 1 second one. If you hurry, which you should be doing, you can just make it across another switching platform. Continue right, and go under the UFO. Yet again, they give you just enough time to get across the platforms before they switch.
Spin through the armor. Double-jump over the stack of iron boxes, and get the 2 second box on the way down. Plow though everything right. When you get to the part where the floor goes backwards, it is quicker for you to jump to the right. Jump over the lasers, and continue right, jumping over the TNT. Go right as quickly as you can, and you will eventually encounter the first platform that you can’t cross quickly enough. Instead, spin double jump to the arrow box, then go right. Hit the TNT to shatter 3 one second boxes, then double-jump to the top of the stack of steel. Jump right, carefully over the lasers and end the level.
