When no need destroy crates fully, I can be even faster, I could put dynamites far from it and spend time. Let judge the moderators if need destroy crates fully, or only more than 50% of it (will count pixels), or... we need know clear rules here.
I think the remaining pixels from the box will be accepted. But if a white piece of 10% of the box remains, then it doesn’t count anymore

Alright then, but I will try to be much much much more careful with the next run. I believe that the final human limit is 76.XX

I landed on the last, 7th crate (at 71.60s), 1.32 sec before you(72.92s), Danger135. But your time is only 0.62 sec behind. I lost 0.7 second between 7th crate and Finish line.

If I had Danger135's speed there, it would have been ~77.22 sec.

Problem is that speed of drilling is pure random. So with totally same player speed you can have different times. So when keep trying same gameplay, it can have different results.

New time - 75.88 sec!

Improvement by -2.04 sec

Spoiler! View
That was the luckiest and the most clutch run I have ever made! :O I had extremely fortunate pneumatic slides on every single cliff. When jumping down from huge falls for 4th and 5th crate I somehow did 2 frame perfect landings (turning off pneumatic drill exactly in the last frame before touching the ground, which is the only frame that doesn't kill your worm). From such a big height I can only do it 5% of time but I did it twice in a row.

Somehow even my pneumatic drilling downwards was exceptionally fast and it was plunging down beyond my expectations. With all of that, I still remembered to release dynamites on 5th and 6th crate only during my jumps (to save 2x 0.18 seconds and avoid placement animation).

At 67.5 sec, right before 7th crate, knowng that I am already ~1.8 sec ahead of the record (which is 1 in 2000+ attempts), I did something stupidly greedy and stupidly risky. Something that I never succeeded to do before. It was always impossible for me to pull off even in the practice.

You see... each time I fall down to 7th crate my worm always completely disappears from my camera, and it's normal because I see him again when placing dyna with worm's hand animation.

But this time I was ridiculously greedy and I blindly turned off my pneumatic without even waiting for the drilling sound. While still not seeing my worm, within 1 second I managed to stop the drill, quickly run 5 pixels to right, quickly select dynamite, and blindly leap from the most perfect spot, and release dynamite ONLY during jumping animation(!) saving extra -0.18 sec and in the air somehow still quickly select pneumatic drill, and somehow still activate it in the very last frame before landing allowing me to slide down. That is when for the first time my camera showed me my worm. The most absurd thing, is that after all this madness, my worm still did... frame perfect landing after the slide itself (o_O). All of that greedy but miraculously successful -0.18 sec save resulted in 75.88 sec time, being my proudest accomplishment in all challenges.

Impossible, but you are very welcome to try. My training put to 75.88 sec could surely be counted in thousands of attempts, rather than hundreds.
