Author's comments:

1. Border Town: Optimal.
2. Pogo Shrine: Optimal.
3. Treasury: Jumps were more accurate than average. Did miss one pogojump after the second keycard but it only cost a couple frames.
4. Capital City: Unfortunate luck with yorp behaviour as clearly visible but in the end it only cost about a second. The rest went fine.
5. Emerald City: Jumps were more accurate than average but could be better still.
6. Ice City: Close to optimal, a rare occurance.
7. Vorticon Commander's Castle: The run killer robot was dodged pretty optimally, the rest went very well too.
Not much else to say, sub 3:50 is certainly possible but would take ages to get.
