Crystal, Bonus and Clear GemEdit
The first part of the level is straightforward, so go until you hit the checkpoint. If you want to get the gem for the time that appears, skip down to the 2nd Clear Gem section of this level. If not, purposely die so you can get rid of the annoying timer.
Hop on the jetski and carefully navigate the dangerous waters. When you reach the end, hop off and hit the checkpoint.
Jump across the hippo and hit the TNT Box. Kill the plant and hit the next TNT box, killing the next plant as well. Take the Bonus platform.
Spin the bottom of the stack of boxes to activate the TNT. Jump across the gap and land on the TNT boxes. Quickly jump on the extra life box to get the extra life before the TNT explodes. The rest of the Bonus is simple, and you should end up with 12 boxes.
Continue walking along the path and get on the jetski. Carefully avoid the platforms with the hungry plants and park at the dock. Grab the Crystal and kill the next plant. Hit the checkpoint.
Instead of immediately hopping on the jetski, follow the path to the right to kill some plants and break boxes. Go back for the jetski and steer the now-safe river. At least it’s safe for the first half. Park at the dock and follow the path to the end of the level. Hit the Green ! Box, grab the gem if you got all the boxes, and exit the level.
Once you reach the first checkpoint, the time will start. Hurriedly navigate through the level to the end. If you avoid all checkpoints when the timer starts you will not have to exit the level to retry. You can still run into other boxes to get wumpa fruit and uka uka masks. To extend your time, enter the bonus area and purposely lose. When you return to the level your time should be at least a minute and a half.
