Walkthrough Guide on Lightsprite
Magnetism is one of the best upgrades in my opinion. It saved my life quite a few times, without it I would have reached a high score of 7394. Magnetism attracts stars to you which is essential, and Star Frequency worked in conjunction with Magnetism. More stars mean more attraction, which also means a better chance of hitting the stars. But please take note that stars bounce off not vertically, but with the opposite vector. So if the running thing moves forward to catch a star, it is repelled backward! It is hard to keep in the desired trajectory; this is why you will have the tendency to miss the stars even you have all the upgrades. So to save yourself from falling to death, keep a max bar of boost and only use them when you desperately need it. For those who are confident with their controls, you can use them early to gain much-needed speed and momentum which can early break your previous score fairly easily. Keep trying! :)
