All done, including cheat protection, so play fair suckers. My respect to whoever gets 2 million on hardcore first.

The game's memory values constantly flash FF on RVba, rendering everything kinda unplayable for leaderboards or cheevs

Is Wispy Woods supposed to be this awful? Got through the other two stages with minor issues, but I've been on Wispy for days. They aren't even trying to hide the luck based design with giving him a slot machine right in the middle of the stage.

Very weird considering Wispy is the standard first/easiest Kirby boss. Makes me really think this game does have bad design and Wispy wasn't intended to be so tough.

After finishing this set I can say this game was probably one of the most frustrating games so far. Not the set itself, but the way the game works. There is a skill element to this game, but there's also a luck element and you have to put forward the skill portion to even meet the luck check.

It's like playing a slot machine, but before doing the machine you have to do a platformer stage for a chance to roll the machine. That's the frustrating part of the game's design is that doing well on your own isn't enough.

Thankfully DeDeDe doesn't have a stage so with enough practice and a good streak you can do the world tour by getting a hot streak and playing well on the other 3 bosses.

The hardest one was 2 million points. For that the best strategy I found was to clear Wispy and Kracko out and then go 'farm' Poppy Bros. If you only kill one poppy bro you get 50k points and then fall back down. This ensures a few checks:

If you fail at rentering Poppy Bros to kill one and sink down to the 2nd board, you have a chance at the star for M and B from the easiest bonus game.

If you fall yet again from the second board you have a chance to hit the warp star. And since you cleared the other 2 bosses you have 2 E X T R A letters waiting for you on the stage select before re-entering Poppy. If you hit them every time with the cannon you could considerably never run out of lives if bad luck sinks you down to the bottom board by just taking the warp star and grabbing 2 E X T R A letters and returning to Poppy for more farming of the 50k kill.

Wispy is definitely the most frustrating stage, I won't deny that!

I recommend you play Sonic Spinball to see the true frustrating pinball game.
