New transistions
« on: April 07, 2013, 06:32:37 AM »
Why is it so hard for me when i point press after useing the bottom hammer to work my way up too the second hammer.  This drives me crazy and i tend to steer away from practicing that too just going up and grabbing the top hammer if anyone has helpful pointers im all ears and i guess eyes too ;)

Yeah, I pretty much dog it after the bottom hammer too. I say to myself "I know there are points I should be getting here, but to heck with it," and just steer everything out of the way.

Aggression during the transition is probably the most dangerous spot in the game. You can very, very easily kill yourself if you're not good with all the different barrel combos.

Roger, can you give us more information on the difficulty you're having?  I think Chris and I interpreted your post differently.  Are you talking about surviving the transition phase on the barrel boards?  Or is it a matter of scoring, where you're steering away a large number of 0 point barrels?

i just have a hard time getting to the fifth girder after using the bottom hammer its been getting a little better just didnt kno if anyone had a smooth way of working there way up or do i just have to learn when to move so i dont dump barrels at myself that make it impossible to get by?
