dont forget you can learn from other players' recordings! after you watch others complete this level, It will be obvious that it is easier than when you haven't seen it completed before.

I'm sure even the top players still fail stage 7 on occasion; that's a rough stage for sure.

But remember: You get to play for another day and you won't be seeing another puzzle round in the time trials. :)

Finally after days... ;_;
Hooray. I'm improving.
I get a little far from stage 1-10, i continued until 3-7, in which I lost. Just for fun :D

Definitely broken! :D

ok, last place score, but here's what I've got so far:
start frame 836, cleared level 5, balloon disappears at frame 23521
383 seconds total, for a score of 55336.
If it's wrong, let me know and I'll fix it.

Indeed... 8:30, anybody? (I feel like I'm running an auction or something... :lol: )

Woo-hoo...not in last place anymore :mrgreen: If I did my calculations correct:
Cleared level 8, start 818, end 41677
41677-818=40859 frames=690.35 seconds=11m30s, so score=84829
If that's wrong, let me know and I'll fix it :)

Indeed I fail that from time to time, and I'm used to get at the very end of first loop ... :oops:

Scores for this round are finalized. Additionally, I have standings after 2 rounds posted below the leaderboard for this round. Quite a 3-way competition we had there! What will the next round hold?

Gameboy9, as far as I understand, I should have a total bonus of 25+10=35s. Can you please check?
You also switched ElFumador and DaLar bonus.
