View Full Version : This Game Likes Trolling Me

Don't get me wrong, I love the game to pieces, but my current set of missions annoys me.

1. "Beat Your Best Score". One day I decided to use blue bubbles, continuing twice with Save-Me Hearts so I could get as high of a score as possible. I ended up getting around 236,000 points, reaching night-Avalonia. Needless to say, I got this mission after I did that run. I also dislike how it only gives you two sack faces, where it should be gauged based on your best score.

2. "Collect a Save-Me Heart in Avalonia". Considering I only find a Save-Me Heart once every 15 games, and that has always been in the Gardens, this will take me ages to get.*

3. "Run 4000 Meters in One Run". The mega run to night-Avalonia mentioned above only got me around 3200 meters, so I'll have to search the uncharted territory of night-Canyons just to get complete this mission. I will probably complete this at the same time as the "Beat Your Best Score".

If you have a mission that annoys you, post it below!

*EDIT: I just completed this mission, and am now cycling through 1 mission at a time. The other two are still annoying me!

Every achievement you posted makes my list of annoyances as well.
Also, the "Collect 4 Stickers in One Run" achievement has been quite an issue for me. Maybe I'm just bad...

Yup, this one is entirely luck. So is "Collect 10 Powerups in One Run"...is that even possible? :/

For ones I can't get, I just "Buy" my way out with the yellow dot thingies. :kz:

But you don't get any Sack Faces (as far as I'm aware), and you spend bubbles, or "yellow dot thingies", to skip it.

You do get the sack faces, just after you play once more.

and the bubbles is well worth it when you're stuck on something. After all, if you've got one forever, then that's taking up a spot for another thing you you might be able to do.

You get the Sack Faces for skipping a mission? :D

Anyway, I still have my original #1 and #3, but now my second mission is "Use 5 Powerups in One Run". At least this is manageable, though it may take awhile, but my brother has "Use 10 Powerups in One Run", as well as two other extremely difficult mission. Were the developers drunk when making these? :/

EDIT: Just completed all my missions in one run with no powerups and only one Save-Me Heart! :boo:

(Hint for getting 4000 meters in one run: have a Save-Me Heart ready, and from night-Gardens on, if you're about to die, just activate the Shieldinator and dash like mad. The points you get should be enough to refill the Shieldinator, and if you end up failing, use the Save-Me Heart and the Shieldinator it provides to dash like mad.)

The real way this game is trolling me is the fact I can't redeem my Toggle gnome.

Now I'm at level 29 out of 40, and the missions are getting harder: good. The amount of points needed to skip a mission is higher: good. What isn't good? That combination PLUS getting fewer Sack Faces for the harder missions. How is "Use 5 Shields in One Run" worth ONE Sack Face?

It also annoys me that since everything you unlock is based on point bubbles and not score, the score is only useful for "Beat Your Best Score". What I would suggest is for every 1000 points you get in a run, you get a bubble. So if I made it to night-Gardens with 200,000 points, I would get 200 more bubbles from my score, which seems reasonable.

Assassinate Avalon

They don't provide a weapon and I don't have any money! GRRRR.

Collecting 4 stickers is pay to win. There's a sack power just for that.
