Encore 8-3 (the one with no checkpoints) was such a pain in the ass. Harder than almost every level in insane mode.
Yeah it was not a fun experience. Took less time than I thought but ugh, hate when games leave things up to chance instead of skill.

Well it wasnt really chance since there's no stochastic element to the cannonfire (except after it interacts with any environmental changes brought on by you),
..but having to execute it all in one run without a chance to rest in between was a hassle because its not easy to get a precisely consistent run on the human end.
Well I've noticed that a lot of the blocks in the game don't start at the same time each retry. Lasers aren't synced, cannons shoot a bit later, etc.
It makes certain retries harder than others because of the randomness of the start times of certain blocks. Anyway, I still enjoy the game amid my frustration at times.
Ive noticed that pretty much it drops you in randomly to the portion of the cycle (rather than say crash course) but that the actual cycle is pretty deterministic
some elements (esp lasers but also cannons) seem to be able to be tuned so that you can get pretty complex metacycles if the periods are slightly dissimilar
one of my goals if i ever use the editor is design a system of auto-triggered blocks that has a sufficiently complex cycle to seem truly random.
Happy birthday! :-)
Happy Birthday :)

Congratulations, have a wonderful day!
Haha ur old
Happy birthday! :)
I hope you saved yourself a lot of grinding and followed my guide!
Yup, although I had to use 2 dummy profiles instead of one.
yeah its very possible if you have a lot of heads that in order to get one dummy to empty you need another dummy
That reminds me that I do need to get back to this and get more achievements in it and stuff. Entertaining game!
It definitely is! I remember really liking the demo, but probably figuring I wouldn't like it $60 worth. 4 years later, at 8 bucks, it's a steal!!
Frustrating but didn't take too long. Really awkward strumming with your pinky on start. That and the game likes to say you missed a bunch.
