4 minutes: ... Flurry 6, 7,  Frost 12, Hail 10.

These four are possible in 2 minutes. And before anyone asks, I fixed the entrance order in Hail 10 before playing - but in this case, it doesn't matter anyway.

5 minutes: Fun 28, Mayhem 5, 19, 21-23, 26, 28-29

Mayhem 23, 28 and 29 can be done in 3 minutes, the rest in 2.

Mayhem 23 can be done in 3 minutes.

Really? :o That's incredible, I did it in 5 minutes and I was quite impressed. I would like a replay sometime.

Well you're in luck - I capped a replay when I did that.

The trick is to slide the lemmings up to the top of the screen, rather than building all the way to the top of the wall.

I Solved Mayhem 30 in just 3 minutes! :D Here's a fantastic replay with (just) enough lemmings to save.

That's nice, but there are a few parts where you've "wasted" time rather than moving towards the exit. And I can see some opportunities to gain more time by sliding instead of building to the top of large obstacles.

I wonder if this could be done in 2 minutes...

I did try to use sliding glitches for both ends of the level but they are so hard to pull off I never actually needed them in the solution.

On the left side I was thinking of the rock bridge;

On the right side I was thinking of their first obstacle (or maybe the wall leading up to the exit?).

The first obstacle on the right can be cleared quickly enough using bashers, blockers and bombers. The last little cliff before the exit is the bit I'm looking at.

Yes, it's hard to pull off the sliding glitch in this sort of situation, but it is possible - which in this sort of challenge is all that really matters.

5 minutes: Mayhem 1, Hail 7, 12, 14, Blitz 2-5.

Apart from the first two, these can be done in 2 minutes. Hail 7 seems to require about 2 minutes and 5 seconds at least, which is rather annoying.

Done Hail 3 in 5 minutes, although I'm 99% sure it works with four...

Yes it does work in four, and here's the proof with a replay.

Just to let you know, As so many of you hate this level, I'm on the contrary and I love this level! ;P It's all because of the huge skill amounts combined with the low save requirements. It if wasn't like that, I wouldn't enjoy the level either.

I just solved Tricky 14 in 2 minutes. :D Here's a replay (featuring everyone's favourite glitch, yet again :P)

And after watching that replay, it won't come as a great surprise to learn that Fun 22 can be done in 2 minutes as well.

That counts. Well done Clam Spammer!

Anyway, I had a look at Yawg's 11-skill replay for Havoc 20, but he did it in 2 minutes and 5 seconds, so that doesn't count as 2 minutes. I wonder if it works in under two.

Uh oh! I haven't checked if Havoc 2 works in under two minutes yet. Should it move to the 3 minute group or not?

EDIT: I think it does work in 2, but it was just that Clam Spammer didn't bold it because I mixed up the list a little bit.

Hmm... I don't recall those Havoc levels being on that part of the list. It doesn't help that you put some Xmas levels in between - that might have caused the confusion.

I'll check those now.

EDIT: All right, put Havoc 8 back to 4 minutes. The rest can stay as they are. Panic's over :D

Well, I never got around to trying this before, but here's Mayhem 30 in 2 minutes.
