Christina,

I could give you the complete cheat sheet on this level but why don't you try this first. Write down just simple arrows of the direction you got off each block. Now when it works continue on. When you go in the direction off a block that puts you in the water draw that arrow direction and put NO by it that way when you come back to that block at least you will know not to go that way. It takes a while to map it but it pays off in the long run. One thing good about this level is that about half way through there is only one right way off each block. Also don't try and get to the exit via the blocks. This will really do you in. You are trying to get to ICE SKATE (will wonders ever cease) in upper right corner. When I got that ice skate when I was on this level I all but strutted accross the ice to the exit. Sorry for the long winded post but I know how it is on this level. More time in the water than on the blocks. Keep trying. Don't give up. I will be watching this board to see how you did.

Put on that ice skate and skate on to the end!

I found that if I looked at my chart, with fingers on the keys, I can do this one without even looking at the monitor screen till I pick up the skate! Goes faster and you don't lose your place on the chart!

After several hours of struggling, many deaths, 261 seconds once, 262 seconds 7 times, I finally matched the unconfirmed high score of 263 seconds!

The trick is to be very concentrated and move very quickly. Just before you are entering the next floor, execute the next move. Chip seems to be "skipping" the floor square and heads straight for the ice slide. This is very hard timing, it's not easy to see whether you're skipping the floor very fast or just a bit fast. I couldn't see the difference between my 262 games and the 263 one (and no, I use the timed CTRL+P/N to get the full second). I was able to get 262 seconds sometimes even with some small keying delays.
