- The game doesn't describe the parry very well. You just have to hold down the bumpers and Sonic will parry the next attack that hits him, no timing required.
- The ability of the trail-making skill to pull rings out of the ground will put out the same number of rings regardless of the size of the circle you draw. So draw tiny circles repeatedly and stack rings quickly. It'll allow you to get 400 rings in less than 30 seconds.
