I played through the whole game a few times before realizing you can push a button to roll faster.

I find this game quite frustrating. Somehow I did better this time vs what's normal for me. I usually die on level 3 or 4.

The tip about pushing a button to go faster certainly helped.

Barely got to the last level, but accomplished nothing in the last one. I just kept falling off that first platform until my time ran out.






... unbelievable - I just noticed I'm behind roloking by 40 points.
