I’ve got to level twelve now, I think, in Free Play mode. It’s the first of the five star difficulty levels and I’m having a hard time completing it. There aren’t any special conditions, it’s just about killing the enemy, but even when I seem to be doing well, somehow my opponent manages to turn the tide against me. I’m really not sure how; I don’t think he has any more power ups than me or anything.

It’s all very interesting and I hope I can work out what I’m doing wrong – or what he’s doing right. More likely, though, I’ll eventually just win without being sure why or I’ll give up and move on to the full game.
