Is it just me or you can beat it holding the right arrow?

Um, yeah, you can. It involves timing or luck though. I'm not sure why this deserves an own topic - it's not like the level is very challenging anyway.

Doesn't really involve either, actually. Just keep the right arrow held down already when the level loads, then you'll always get the timing right. :P
Nice find, that.

Eh, that's what I did. I tried it twice. It didn't work. Then, I used timing and kept holding right, which worked. I tried that other method again, didn't work. I'd always fall in the middle whole.

Odd. Just tried again, kept the right arrow held down, hit space when the ball got to the last screen. Passed it ten times without fail. :/

Only on Alternative mode though, it doesn't work on Normal. Might be up to something as silly as computer speed too or something. :P

I can pass many levels using this method actually.

It doesn't always work and sometimes I have to wait a slight tenth of a second at the start and sometimes it only works for the first few obstacles, but that makes beating them easier. I tested this on alternative btw.

It's a flaw.

The beta testers should have found the areas where it's possible to cheat this way and the level design should have been adjusted.
