    07/18/05 Started and finished writing the Time Attack FAQ - v0.1
    
    02: What is Time Attack
    After clearing a level you can time attack it by pressing
    the Start button. You have to get a given number of apes
    as fast as possible. You get rewarded with a bronze, silver
    or gold award. I will only list the gold times, because they
    are all that count.
    Time Attack is best attempted after finishing the game, because
    you will need the transformations for it.
