So I get to meet a few of those round balls at the beginning. Not bad, easy chains. However, the jetplane swarm baffles me. I can't seem to find any pattern whatsoever in there to allow me to chain up. I can't just leave them be, as I risk bumping into one of them. On the other side, I don't want to break my chain... I went to find some inspiration by watching a video on Ikaruga Replays, but the player there seems pretty much as random as I am!
So that leaves me with two goals: Number one, rack up some chains during the jetplane swarm. Number two, survive the maneuver. How should I tackle this puzzle?
