You will need to complete all 19 levels of the game within 40 minutes.

Don't try to combine this with the Perfect Win or Chaos Master achievement, unless you have played this game many times before and know the levels inside out, even then I would still hold fire on going for Chaos Master.

The above solutions all provide excellent advice, so i'm not going to duplicate anything they have, or provide any links to videos etc, although i'd recommend using them if you are struggling.

You have 2400 seconds to complete the game, and below are the times I got to provide a benchmark. I used a calculator and starting at 2400, deducted the times I got for each level just to make sure I had plenty of time.

I had also played thru once to get all the other achievements 1st and to refresh myself with the game then went onto the speed run playthru.

1 - 36 seconds (You could try for 35 and the achievement)
2 - 40 seconds
3 - 72 seconds
4 - 77 seconds
5 - 142 seconds
6 - 203 seconds
7 - 83 seconds
8 - 81 seconds
9 - 174 seconds
10 - 158 seconds
11 - 134 seconds
12 - 164 seconds
13 - 72 - seconds
14 - 67 seconds
15 - 120 seconds
16 - 97 seconds
17 - 125 seconds

18 - i used the shortcut where you fall off the moving platform at the start and then keep high after opening the 1st gate and make you way to the red bumper that fires you into the final zone, far quicker than doing the whole level, but as the screen changed quickly i didn't see the time.

19 - 125 seconds

My times are not that fast, but as suggested i generally saved at the start of the level, half-way thru on the longer ones and before boss battles, and after every couple of hits on the final battle. I reloaded if i died or got really stuck, or if i just seemed to be taking a slow route, as i didn't watch any video guides.
