Ok, I managed to get by in level 5 and 6. I hope I don't have to get the rings to finish the games, but I can't seem to stay airborne long enough to get those rings that round corners. I've heard that I have to "do a perfect turn" but I still don't get it. I've only managed to do it by accident. Can anyone explain how they do this? Seems like I drop down automatically when I try to do a turn in the air.

That's me finishing chapter 6 but you can see that I miss those rings that round corners.

Practice perfect turns on 4-1. When you get a perfect turn, you'll hear a "twink" sound (it's hard to put it into words. A non-perfect turn just sounds more like "clank."

If I remember, I can upload a video of the level of your choice and try to explain the difference in more detail. I'd have to wait until I get home for that, though.

Any help is much appreciated. I know the sound you mean. Trouble for me is I don't know how to execute the turns to stay airborne. In the vid, you see I do it a few times but sometimes I drop back down before getting the second set of rings. So I'm obviously doing something wrong with the controls.

I guess one way I can put it is to turn at the last possible moment. If you fall to the ground, you turned too early. If you take damage, you turned too late. You have to find that sweetspot; it's a small window.

As for the controls, when you're flying, you only need to hold X, you don't have to hold Up. So, when you turn, you just steer left or right while continuing to hold X.

Thank you, I'll try practicing those turns on 4-1 as you suggested. You're the first to explain and clarify how this is done.
