I still cannot understand sometimes. Why I can get a great reasult in one player, but cannot past the level on two player.
The bigger goo is always "handicapped" - it grows slower than the smaller goo. Therefore, to get an optimal time, both goos need to be eating roughly the same amount of stuff. (If you just play as one goo, for example, you'll get a poor time)

I'm VERY SERIOULY THINK that I've beaten ThirdParty on the first level in one player mode. Let There Be Goo with the time of 22.05. Am I right?

You can view the high scores list by hitting the "High Scores" button from the main menu.

I know, I'm just checking if it's really correct.

Wow, the scores for all of the levels are so much harder, I know I haven't gotten worse at the game, I improved several of my scores and unlocked the first few levels of future bonus. I even got within .07 of my Cherry Blossoms score. Maybe I should try the 2 player levels.

Edit: Ok, it turns out I'm horrible at them...back to seeing if there is anything you forgot to optimize in 1 player...

Welcome back, Nibbler.  I see that you captured the "Always a Bigger Fish" high score.  I've reclaimed it.

You may want to get your hard score under my score for the normal level since I could probably get the same score for the hard mode.

Also I PM'd you.

Eh, it's a luck level.  Not like I have a strategy that I'm in danger of forgetting, or anything like that.  I'll wait until you beat my score before I bother improving it.

Ok. Do you have any tips on 2 player mode (for the whole game)? I am awful...

Well, for soloing two-player, there are basically three possible approaches.

1.  Put the dextrous goo in the lead, having it eat everything.  The clumsy goo only has to follow it well enough to allow the screen to scroll (and, on hard levels, not get eaten).

2.  Put the clumsy goo in the lead.  The dextrous goo should wander around behind it, picking up whatever food it accidentally leaves behind.

3.  Have the two goos move side-by-side in tandem, neither in the lead, and think of them as a single goo which happens to be slightly misshapen.

Whenever a level zooms out, the smaller goo gets raised to minimum size, so you're free to switch approaches at that point.

I myself just control both goos, try to avoid get thouched by the other things bigger than yourself, then both must go to somewhere that they both can have something to eat

I find that the only way I can complete the level is to just use the main goo. I am not ambidextrous at all. I can't control the second goo no matter how hard I try.

Then I suggest you to finish the casual mode (2 players) first, then train yourself, that's how I train myself.
