G1 G2 G3 G4 G5 G6 G7

Begin in C2.
Move to B2, activate the Pusher to allow an exit much later on.
Proceed along the only current path to C5 and move down to D5 and west to D4.
Get the Purple Key and energizer. The spinning gun will fire stars that try to run away from you while invincible. Once it wears off you will be pushed out safely. (Do start running up ASAP before stars get loose).
Move north through A5 via Blue Transporter.
Wrap around to G5.
Take the green transporter.
Move south to A4 and open the purple door.
Follow the transporter and head east.
The spinning gun is more dangerous than the tigers are.
Follow the path east/north and back to G4, but the other path.
Continue along and get the energizer in D4.
Manipulate stars to block the tile to the right of the transporter in D3 and take it to get to D7.
From D7 follow the path south first.
At the split, push the boulders as far out as they'll go.
Go from F7 to G7.
Wrap to A7.
Shoot the centipede.
WHILE STILL IN A7, position the player one tile above where the head was to get the bears in A6 to move as far east as they possibly can.
Then take the transporter to be placed in A6.
The next goal is to manipulate one of the bears to move south, making the A7->A6 transporter function both ways.
Transport south into B6.
Activate the upper bomb and push it north.
Step to the right and the bear in A6 should move south to achieve the previous goal.
Either use the breakables generated by the explosion to transport back north safely, or get the lions to block the empty space. (They have a high intelligence value so this is pretty reliable.)
DO NOT TOUCH THE SECOND BOMB. It is necessary later on.
Transport back to A6 and wrap north to G6.
Push the rightmost boulder all the way to the top of the board, but do not harm or trap the centipede. It needs to stay alive and intact.
Depending on the centipede's movements, either push the left boulder south to the conveyors, or proceed north and collect the blue key.
You'll have to do both of these, but the order doesn't matter. It may be wise to not collect the ammo either.
Proceed to G6 and transport to G7's rightmost side.
Line yourself up with the top transporter and wait for the centipede to block the (upper) red transporter you just took.
Transport west from G7, which due to the centipede will take you to G4 instead.
Transporter east immediately to be placed into G5.
This time take the white transporter in F5.
Open the blue door and collect the yellow key.
Transport west after grabbing the key.
Move south along the path and take the transporter north to E1.
Follow the path southeast to G3.
Try to manipulate the ruffian into blocking the green spinning gun. Avoid the bombs as they will kill the ruffian and make the return trip more dangerous.
Wrap from G3 to A3 and collect the cyan key.
Wrap back and go through the white transporter in F1 again to leave this portion of the maze.
Wrap from F1 to F7.
Follow the path north to D7 and wrap east to D1.
On entering this board, you should have a white key from the previous one.
Use it and collect the torches and gem.
Open the cyan and yellow doors.
Move up into B1 where the pusher will block your exit.
Push the cyan sliders in B2 to the east to open a path to the start.
Transport west and wrap around to B7.
Quickly move south through the gap and collect the red key.
On the way back, hug the right wall and the spinning gun won't fire any bullets.
Back at B1, transport north to A1 and follow the path, shooting any bears in the way.
Wrap from B2 to G2.
There's the exit, but you don't have the final key yet.
Transport west and move to G1.
Wait for the centipede to move to the rightmost space and take the transporter safely to the western edge of G1.
Wrap around to G7. Take the transporter there to G6.
Head north D6 and open the red door to collect the final green key.
You can destroy the centipede safely now.
Head south to G6 and wrap to A6.
