I've made it a little bit into Phase 2 quite a few times, but every time I die I restart from the very beginning of the game. Is that quote accurate? Also seeing some lag when I enter Phase 2.
The furthest I've made it is 17,292, where a white block is moving to the right underneath spaced out small diamond white platforms with black spikes falling from the ceiling. I progressed slowly jumping mainly on the diamonds and eventually the spikes built up so much that the white moving block became stuck and I was unable to progress with no safe jump available. Maybe I just tackled that section the wrong way, only been there once.
Also encountered some moving black orbs issues in Phase 1, it seems when entering that area through the tunnel too quickly, 1 of the black orbs doesn't trigger and it's stuck in a spot that is impossible to pass.
Yep, it always resets to the beginning of Phase 1 for me as well.
I've scored 18,170 on my best run. (I've died twice in the part right after where you got stuck.) I've found that you need to ignore the moving platform, and just jump between the diamonds. Wait for stuff to fall, then jump to the next diamond, and stay ahead of the platform, because it'll push the crap up at you.
There are a few places I've found where the game can present unwinnable situations because of the intentional variance they've added to the physics system. The "stuck orb" spot is one of those, I think.
