Splits

(Recommended for Advanced Runners) Any% Honeybloom Route (Fastest Route)

This route is not recommended until you get the hang of specific levels such as Honeybloom 1 (If performed right it's 15s faster). This doesn't do Supermassive 1 (Splits are set to be subsplits, if you want to change the splits a bit, just get rid of the - and curly brackets) (external link)

(Recommended) Any% Route (Second Fastest Route)

This is currently the second fastest route. This route does Boo Moon 1. This route is recommended for runners who have not extensively practiced Honeybloom 1. (external link)

2̶4̶2̶ ̶S̶t̶a̶r̶s̶ ̶R̶o̶u̶t̶e̶ (OUTDATED)

Old 242 route. This route is slightly slower as you have to switch worlds to get back to Slimy Spring L without watching the Galaxy Generator cutscene. (external link)
