Really pretty easy. Just running, jumping, waiting and then running and jumping; you will most likely NOT get this if you die. You can move faster by running and jumping; just allow a step in-between jumps.

A. When you gain control of your character, you keep running to the right. The first half is not so speed sensitive. The 8th building is the first to really need a longjump. But then again, you don't. If you land a little short, you can crawl or roll through the wall and back on the path again.

B.The sixteenth building is where you want to stop for a while. It is easy tell you are approaching the sixteenth building because there will be three rooftops that look the same and they will each be a little lower each time. Stop yourself close enough to the edge to do a longjump and wait for the giant to stop moving. From here it is about twelve seconds before it raises another roof for you. Here, I used an old NINTENDO SLOW-MOTION TRICK. Pause the game before the roof comes. Then, hit B and quickly pause again. Do this until you see the roof start to rise. When you see it, pause again. This time ready yourself by holding X and the right direction. Un-pause and jump onto the next new ledge.

C. Quickly now!!! The rest of the level is all running and jumping fast for another eight buildings or so. There are a few times when the raised roof you are on gets so high that if you jump you will die. Use your best judgment here on when it is best to just run off it and land on the next one or jump. Either way, do it fast. If you did this without dying you got it. If not, restart the level, it will be good practice if you are going for Arthur. Achievement will pop at the final building.
