Level 1a Medal?
I've been trying my damndest to actually get a medal on this level, but for some reason I can't seem to get it to unlock. Does anyone have any idea whether or not this level even HAS a combo medal? 'Cause if not, I'd hate to waste any more time on it.

It's got one!

The target's pretty high though ( i seem to remember it's 600, although don't quote me on that!). I'd recommend a) using the close range attack almost exclusively (you get double combo points for that), and b) let the enemies build up before you start attacking.

The trick is to get to the point where you start shooting missiles in your first few attacks. The missiles auto fire an stop your combo counter from dropping as fast.

Other general tricks for combo medals include using all the close range meter when you've got the missiles firing. After 2 seconds of your close range charge running out, you'll be given ~1 quater of your meter back. Having the missiles will help keep your combo meter from dropping too much. Also, the combo medal isn't awarded until the level select screen, so keep going during the frenzy section!

Hope that helps!

Wow! Thanks, Charlie! That's excellent of you to drop by and help me out. I appreciate it! I should be able to go back and get that medal, now that I know what my goal is. [For some reason, knowing the exact number, or even having a general idea helps me focus on it better.]

Thanks again for taking the time to help, and you have a good day! I may post again to say how it went.

Have you unlocked expert mode yet? There's more medals in there!

I have! And somehow, I've even managed to skip getting the custard cream! I am impressed, if not otherwise confused.
