:I observe something similar to this playing the PC version. If I shoot a laser, but respond quickly enough, I can fire a bubble instead and the bubble will take effect. Or vice-verse. The wrong missile still has an effect, it's just delayed. --[[User:Blu Aardvark|Blu Aardvark]] <small>[[user talk:Blu Aardvark|(talk)]] [[Special:Contributions/Blu Aardvark|(edits)]]</small> 08:24, 19 November 2008 (UTC)

::I've noticed this as well.  In fact, I'm pretty sure I've been penalized for saving a clown with the bubble AND THEN rewarded for destroying it with the laser. -{{User:ReverendTed/sig}} 04:46, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

:::I've noticed it's possible to collide with a clown or performer and still shoot or rescue them, so I wouldn't be surprised if you could both shoot and rescue something too. I've never noticed it, true, but it wouldn't surprise me. --[[User:Belthazar|Belthazar]] 05:09, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

Anyone figure out a strategy for this game?  My reaction time must suck.. I just can't seem to consistently dodge the stale circus treats.  {{User:OptimisticFool/sig}} 08:02, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

:I didn't find this too hard - I managed to reach the awesomeness requirement on my very first attempt. =) It's just a matter of being able to dodge in the right direction fast. And recognise which direction is the right one fast. Use your bomb if you're in trouble. Not really sure what else to say but "improve your reaction time" - that's basically what this game is all about, a reaction-time tester. To be able to quickly recognise an object and take the appropriate response. --[[User:Belthazar|Belthazar]] 08:21, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

::That, and I actually see the bomb as a hindrance. When you can use it, you might as well dodge, but if you didn't dodge right or something, it's too late to use it. That, and it sets your "To Save" meter to 1. This gets you to the next level fast, and quickly gets you to harder levels with lower points. I just use it on the first level when I have one left to save anyway, so I don't accidentally use it again later. {{User:Superfield Credit Union/sig}}

:::Aye, I generally save the bomb until after I've already reached the 15,000 mark, just to see how far I can get. By the third Black Hole, though, I'm pretty much colliding every time. (Mind you, even around Venus, you should still have about a second to react before you can't avoid a collision, and that's plenty of time. The 15k mark gerally occurs around Mercury.) --[[User:Belthazar|Belthazar]] 05:09, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

::::Okay, I found a nice little strategy that works beautifully on the PC.  Stick and move until things start to get a bit too close.. then do everything on Pause!  Yee haw!  You can pause, hit a fire button, and when you unpause, whatever you've fired will find its target.  Pause each time something first enters the field of view and the game is a piece of cake.  This makes dodging a bunch easier, too, but you have to tap away at the arrow key ''after'' unpausing.  Neato.  (P.S. The reason I had such a hard time to begin with was because I didn't know that the direction you move mattered .. how stupid of me.)  =]  {{User:OptimisticFool/sig}} 09:03, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

:::::Yeah, I didn't know that the direction mattered, either. And it stinks that the Wii version doesn't have a pause feature. :( {{User:Superfield Credit Union/sig}}
 
-
::::::Well, I can see why that might make things tricky, since you'd only have a one in four chance of avoiding a collision. Didn't you wonder why the objects always seemed to come at you from different sides of the screen? It took me all of one collision in my first game to figure out that direction was inportant. =) --[[User:Belthazar|Belthazar]] 22:09, 22 November 2008 (UTC)
