  • Bear coins count: 56
  • Use the sideburners to kill bees without slowing down. If you kill with the bottom of the Rocket you will slow down.

Beat Krematoa


  • In the first half of the stage, activation of side thrusters before rocket has reached maximum falling speed will hinder the increase of falling speed, so be mindful of activating them if maximum falling speed hasn't been reached yet
  • Some tight cornering is required for optimal progression
