Question & Answers
Timed Chapters & Chapter 11 Drill-x singing drill
Can anyone help me with info. On how to get through chapters in less time, to get the timed star? I have finished first 3 chapters with all the stars, but can't get through others. Any tips appreciated! In chapter 11, I can see the luck-o-tron wheel, but have not been able to get it and missing 2 areas that I can't find! Also the winged saphire! Been through this chapter 5 times already. Any help appreciated!

WOW that's a lot of questions! LOL!
Getting the timed star is called a Speed Run. For Speed Runs, obviously don't try to do anything optional or find anything you haven't found. Pick someone who is not only fast, but has a move to make them faster (a "Dash" move, though flying is almost as good) AND can kill fast. I always pick my fully upgraded Stealth Elf. Skip any fights you can, using the dash move as much as possible, and using your guy's fast fighting skills to get past the rest. Learn the puzzles well so you know how to solve them quickly. It's easier to answer this question about specific levels, though, and you've left too many levels to just give advice on all (there's a limit to how long these messages can be).
Ch. 11 Wheel: It's locked behind a gate. Ignore it for now, go further into the level. Soon, when you're standing over it, there's a ramp down to an open area. Going AWAY from the open area you land on conveyor belt ending in a large button. Hit that button, a gate in front of you drops to give you access to some treasure. This ALSO drops the Wheel's gate. Bounce up, cross this platform and drop back to where the Wheel is.
As for the areas, it's hard to say. But I would bet I know ONE you're missing. There's nothing in it, so it just exists to stop you from finding all areas. Along the conveyor belts you'll find a Life gate hole in the floor. JUST after this, come towards the camera to find a conveyor belt going the wrong way, forcing you back to the platform you just got to. Force your way past it. At the other end is it's own area, so it's probably one of the areas you're missing.
Actually, if you're missing the Winged Sapphire, that's the other area. At the VERY beginning, before you do ANYTHING, notice the close part of the platform has a yellow arrow pointing towards the camera? Follow it. Drop down. New area AND Winged Sapphire.

Sorry, for the Wheel I misspoke. You're not standing over it when you find the ramp. You must continue on from there to the next catwalk section, THEN you get a ramp down, or a conveyor belt back. After that is correct. The button does indeed face another gate that falls, and that treasure trove is in the same section as the Wheel, but behind it.
