The Race

UPDATE: Take this as a lesson that persistence is gold! I managed to do it now.

How totally necessary is the power-up offered by The Race? This may be admitting that I suck, but I'm finding it ridiculously hard! I've only managed to survive it once so far and I wasn't even kind of close on time.

Keep firing the whole race – that'll help you survive. Take the booster strips (the >>> on the paper) and that will speed you up. As for necessity, well, it's MUCH better shields 😉

On the other hand, for me the trick was to fire as little as possible, and just duck by everything I could. Shooting slowed me down, and the places I had to shoot were the bottlenecks. The mines were the worst, since it was a long time before I was able to aim at them quickly enough.

That's true, but in the interest of keeping it simple was the core of my suggestion. 😉

Whatever works. 🙂
