- Death costs time at most checkpoints. For example, at world 8 you have to go through five checkpoints. They cost 0.02, 0.00(?), 0.02, 0.02 and ? seconds each death so even if you do the exact same route, you'll be that time later. So be prepared to restart the whole level if you die, unless the death also belongs to the route. And yes, in world 7 there's a checkpoint with a huge death penalty.
- Obviously, one should try to avoid walls or stops and in other worlds collect gems. The right balance counts.
- Patience is necessary. Without the will to play until one has the best route, one can't become a good speedrunner. Afterwards one still needs to play until one has the best execution.
- If you have issues, don't be afraid to ask for help. I also needed to be shown how to do World 8 correctly.
- Again: Replay, replay, replay. Practice, practice, practice.

Ok, not much that only goes for eversion, except the first point. :-) Feel free to add more tips.
