    I love it just like the first game! Had to purchase the bonus menu too. I also really dig the music in World 4.

    What's the deal with the race scores? I feel as though I put up a decent run on the first race but don't come even close to the 100K mark. How are these scores possible?

    Thanks, Guise!

    The controls should be the same as Mikey Shorts, but with the addition of hooking. We were so happy with the controls in Mikey Shorts that we didn't feel they needed any tweaking.

    Thanks for the support!

    The race scores are cumulative across all 12 race levels. Are you saying that you just played Race 1? If so, then you need to play the rest of the race levels to get past the 100k. :)

    I can setup a quick bootstrap site with a table. Everyone will need to submit proof somehow though.

    Just started playing this game (only a few levels in) and didn't know there were golden shorts to find. Are they found in each level?

    Just got this up, hopefully it will work. Let me know if there are any problems or anything that should be added.

    Ah the glory days (minutes) of discovering the level 4-3 shortcut only to have my score quickly shattered.

    I totally loved Mikey Shorts, but I'm having some trouble really getting locked into a good place control wise with Mikey Hooks. Whatever the case my hands feel more worn out by this game than the last one. Granted my times aren't super bad or anything, but honestly the difference in runs usually comes down to the little Z falls and S jumps where you fall and have to quickly zigzag left and right and then slide under something and then jump up and jump up left then up right. Everything else in the game is buttery smooth but those spots. I've tried moving the controls around, but 95% of time speed running is spent restarting the level because of these little Z & S turns. The rest it's because I pressed a button, or thought I hit the right place, and nothing happened which killed the whole speed run.

    I'm not passing judgement yet. Just throwing some feedback down.

    Bugs? Sometimes the ghost data has weird animation glitches. It keeps up to where it's supposed to be but the animation is just random glitches or something and it just kind of jumps around as if the ghost is being shocked to death.

    I do have one small REQUEST...

    I've tried the ghost, the dashed line, ... and I'd like to use one but they are both soooo distracting. Would it be possible to offer up a lighter version of the ghost. I'm talking barely visible on the screen. The ghost as it is just gets in the way too much IMO, but if it was more transparent then I think it would be easier to ignore it during the twitch jumping moments.

    Just to throw a few stats up there, I've played through the first 5 levels (only aiming to perfect the first 3) and the first two races and already have collected 6044 coins, broken 944 gates and played 1hr 45min (though honestly it feels like a lot more than that). So I've done quite a bit despite having accomplished so little. On the first 4 levels I'm either 1st or 2nd amongst my friends... and am 19/22/16 on the global leaderboards for the first 3 levels).

    @nightc1 it took you 1hour 45 minutes to get 3 Stars in the first 7 level?

    Some of my stats:
    Playtime: 1hour 58minutes
    Gates Broken: 856
    83 Stars earned
    Collected coins: 14.600
    Finished the first 3 worlds all with 3 stars.

    I'm not going for stars, I'm going clearing levels and then not moving on till I at least beat most of my friends high scores. I figure that way the game will last a little longer. I could probably 3 star the entire game in an hour if I wanted. :p

    Thanks for the feedback, we really appreciate that. I hope you can find a control setup that suits you better. The control scheme really hasn't changed from Mikey Shorts, but you aren't the first to mention that. So I'm not sure yet what is going on. We'll keep an eye out.

    And thanks for the ghost report. We've had a couple of those, so I have that glitchy ghost to fix on my todo list.

    And as far as a more transparent ghost/line, we can also add that to our list and see if we can't come up with something -- maybe even making the ghost more transparent by default.

    Thanks!

    In the mean time, I'm using the line. It's not as nice as the ghost, but it for the most part isn't obtrusive.

    ...

    Nicely I've Top 10'd Globally 1-4 & 2-1... and top 25'd 1-1, 1-2 & 1-3. Looks like Andy is done dominating race mode and is now digging into the regular levels too so I guess I'll have to settle for #2 amongst my GC friends.

    Maybe just a transparency slider option for the ghost?
