The punching minigame is annoying( NEVER MIND DID IT)
How do i beat this? I'm stuck on the round where you gotta get 40 and only have 70 seconds left.
How do i beat this? Whenever i get like 20 points i end up missing one target and it's pretty much over because i waste time trying to hit that one and then another one comes up and i miss that one.
Also i don't have a controller nor am i willing to spend money on one just to get passed this one part.
Help please?

Ive beaten it while using a track pad before so dont give up! Its possible and you will feel like a god when youre done! A controller makes it so much easier but if you wont buy one, id recommend experimenting with camera angles. Also know how far to walk in order to hit a target. You want to move as little as possible for times sake. Oh and quit hitting babies. Good luck.

This is annoying.
I'm at the point where i'm about to see if i can download someone's save file where they have rank 101.
I'm being serious but this minigame made me attempt to rip my hair out!

Is it possible for me to upload my save file so someone can download it and beat this minigame for me?

Im not sure but it wouldnt feel like an achievement if someone else achieved it for you.

Play it without sound, it distracts you. Use a good gamepad, and when a baby pops up center Raz on the button so you can reach all directions.

This is how I got it years ago on Xbox, and this is how I got it in only a few tries on PC a few days ago.

The final round is 50 in 75 seconds, but it almost seems easier than the one you're stuck on.

Update. I got passed the round i'm stuck on now i need to get passed the round where you need 40 in 60 seconds. Tried doing that about 20 times and slammed my fist into my keyboard 3 times.

Yeah, it is a terribly frustrating thing. After a rage process like yours, I followed other's advice and cheated my way out of it by running some videos in the background and upping the resolution

Does that work? Please tell me. I really wanna go ahead and move on to the meat circus and finally 100% this game.

Ughh the problem is is that if a target pops on the opposite side i don't have enough time to turn around and hit it.
This minigame is worse then the water temple from zelda OOT.
Someone should create a program that makes it when you have 5 seconds to hit the targets before they disappear. I don't care if that's cheating no one deserves to go trough this type of rage.

I would reccommend you just suck it up and get a controller for your computer. I didn't want to get one the first year of PC gaming, then i finally did and I'm glad I did. There are a LOT of games out there that play better with a gamepad, and once you have it.... you have it....

don't look at it like your buying it just to beat this challenge, look at it like your buying it because its a good thing for any gamer to have...

From the looks of it i am gonna have to buy a controller because a keyboard and mouse does not work well for this game
It would be more easier from the looks of it

It took me over an hour, might've been close to two actually, of repetiting it on sheer willpower to get through it. The good news is the one you get through that one (I think it's the 2nd to last one, the one many get stuck on), the last round is a bit easier to get through.

Try to stay in the middle near the button when it gets really fast, maybe not worry as much about hitting the babies since missing the normal ones count as a lost point as well.
