This isn't my most eloquent commentary; I'm not sure why, the old brain just wasn't quite ticking. I hope the commentary doesn't come across as harsh - like I say in the video, playing under these conditions is difficult, and I just wanted to be clear about what aspects of the run could be improved.

What I was getting at in this video is that, in my opinion, the key thing to bear in mind when struggling to consistently hit 100 million is: don't just hit the nearest gate each time, but rather try to think about *why* you are hitting THIS gate in THIS manner. Try to make the most of each one and get the maximum damage, and move towards gates in such a way that will enable you to do so, while ensuring you hit gates regularly and avoid spending too long (or, ideally, any time at all) in dangerous areas. The benefits of making a series of good, simple decisions will gradually accumulate, and without doing anything particularly dramatic you will find yourself under less pressure for longer, which, in turn, enables you to concentrate on good decision-making. Phew.

With regards to the part of the video I flagged up: what I meant to say here is that there wasn't much benefit from lingering near the isolated gate at the bottom. If necessary I would have exploded this gate, but only as a means towards moving quickly to the other two gates (towards the left of the screen). With two gates in close proximity to each other like this, you can use the explosion of one to wait longer before exploding the second, allowing you to get maximum damage. These gates also offered a natural route away from this danger area.
