      Seems like I'm falling for the same traps every time. Inching closer to 200k though. You're right Terence, that level 10 can be a bugaboo.

      Well, time to boil these suckers to see what's what.

      Update: Cooked them for 4 minutes to al dente, what can I say, they seem the same. Of course this is just the base to a more sophisticated dish. I just found that these are a tad unhealthier. Also they contain the yolk where my normal ones contain no yolks. Case closed.

      Glad that's done and over with, back to Dk3.

      This is quite a hard game to give tips on, any questions from you guys?

      I'll list a few things hopefully some are helpful but mostly obvious stuff

      - clear the stage by spraying DK to the top or extermination all of the bugs

      - super spray respawns when you die. It carries over each stage if you don't use it (even if it's on the ground)

      - you want to be directly under a queen bee when shooting it.

      - queen bees DONT pick up flowers

      - you can stand on/over worms when they're shot.

      The key to this game is not being too aggressive, don't stand on the top 2 platforms because you will die unless you're George Riley

      If there's a bunch of bugs flying around try to avoid shooting a queen bee until its clear. Their explosion coupled with the needles from other bugs can cause much pain

      On the first two stages you should be able to spray Kong up with the normal sprayer. Then use the super spray to boost through 3 and 4. Easy points and a good way to start

      This game is actually quite similar to Galaga in that the bugs have pre determined flight paths, contrary to what you might think they don't fly around randomly

      Efficiency is so important here. You should always be doing something, like shooting DK upwards to keep him from falling off the fines (you die when this happens) or shooting the worms up to keep them away from your platforms.
      You should always be actively shooting something (no mashing either apart from when you have super spray)

      Hope that helps, post is somewhat convoluted so I apologize for that

      Just got past level 6 for the first time without losing a life (alrighty!), didn't lose a life on level 10 (woohoo!), and lost seven lives on level 12.

      I think I've noticed that my problems start when my peripheral starts to shrink, I get so focused one particular thing (getting the super sprayer at all costs after losing a life is a particular trap for me, kinda like doubling down) that I don't notice the dangers from... well, everywhere!

      And lately I've been neglecting DK and letting him down the vines, which wasn't a problem before.

      So losing focus is less a problem here, narrowed focus is my big problem.

      (maybe I should add that "smiley" to my signature until the end of MGL!)

      This sums up the few decent runs I have. A solid early show followed by a severe beating.

      Has anyone noticed that the bugs twirl making them difficult to kill? Not only do they twirl, they shoot things at you while you're trying to line up shots on their twirly-ness twirling without any notice whatsoever.

      When I play this game, this is what I see:

      I used my deswirlifier image fixer-upper software and found the original image.

      It turns out to be an old friend of yours.
      No wonder you're having trouble!

      That's what happens when you don't pay the piper. No photo uploads ... is it fixed yet? ...

      Starting to get the hang of this game. Never really played much. But a long way away from the top. I dont think my spare hour of game play i found is going to cut it!! Ha ha
