- Take advantage of the ability to download the ghosts from the leaderboards.
- Try to plan out your route before you attempt to break the target. It helps if you plan where to jump, when to jump, etc.
- If you get lost at any point during the new trials just look around for colored blocks (usually red, purple, pink, yellow). These are the slowest, but easiest routes to follow.
