I could maybe shave some time off, but seeing the diamond scores being under 15 seconds seems a bit absurd.
Is there some trick to running extremely fast? I hold down RT and figured out that pressing X to do a spin attack as you're running whenever you can/have room shaves off some time, and skipping the floating lumins b/c floating slows you down, but I don't see how it's fucking possible to finish it 8 full seconds faster, and none of these latest challenges are on youtube.
All the times are legit, there are many posts by me on page 1 explaining how to get the most out of your Rayman. I'm done with the game so can't tell you anything specific for that challenge
Getting diamond is never easy.
