This introduced some new enemies into the mix – the form of ‘red bullets’ which essentially ‘shoot’ at you after a brief moment of hovering, as opposed to the black bullets which come at your slowly and steadily.
What surprised me about this level was how essential height was to a full completion. While I tried to stay as high as I could, I noticed a few coins that I missed simply because I was sitting too low in the level. Part of this is a matter of practice and timing – it’s not the first time I’ve mentioned needing to masterfully practice the art of jumping on bullets – but it’s also knowing a little bit about when-and-where those coins are going to pop up.
Much, much more practice needed on my part before getting anywhere close to complete on this level.
