Reach the flag at the end of each level as quickly as possible. Press A to jump and SPACE and attack. You can also attack wooden obstacles to destroy them and get through. When you press jump the character and jump far distances and sometimes when you don't want her to so press lightly and give her some space. Also you cannot make her jump up onto a platform if she is standing directly in front of a wall. She will jump backwards instead. This is handy when you need to climb up and over and you are between two walls.
