This is level 3 of The River.
In this level, the first half is easier for the Runner. If you use her, just try to do high jumps between rings, since the tile size and the gaps are huge. But in the later half, it is much more tricky, there is an extremely large gap, and you need to jump on a large ramp in order to reach there. You should try to gain as much momentum as you can and run onto the ramp (by not jumping and keep staying on the ground), but it is hard since there are holes and boxes blocking your way on the platform. Just try to dodge them and run on the ramp, do a high long jump and try to reach the end.
Using the Skater is much easier at the later half part, due to his tremendous speed, but the first half is trickier. You need to land on the narrow platforms, while not falling into space, this can be quite a challenge.
But after you beat this level, you will reach a cutscene.
Here is a brief description of the cutscene featuring in this level. More can be seen in this page.
After beating F-3, a cutscene starring the Duplicator and Child will begin. The Child says that he calls the F-Tunnel "The River" and explains that it is a "thin blue line on the surface of the planet." He continues saying that rivers are really wavy, like the tunnel, and he saw one in a book. The Duplicator says that books are fiction, and the Child replies with, "Yeah, Yeah."
When you unlock the Bridge Building minigame, one of the boxes is shown on the Galaxy Map to be in this level, but when you click on it, you are playing as the Skater on Level M-5 The reason for this is unknown.
