I do much better in my second battle with the Splat Roller. Admittedly, having an excellent team behind me to take up my huge slack helps greatly. I hope they didn't notice me trying to squid on un-inked turf. I do know how to squid, honest.
I miss the jump-flick on the approaching squid. I miss-time and miss the flick to get the super-jumping inkling. Not being able to jump over a Kraken is just being a squid, and my squidmate has a jolly good attempt at taming the Kraken.
In the end, the victory is fairly straightforward. But, like I say, that's down to my squidmates more than me. I contributed, at least, and the comfortable battle let me play around with the Roller a bit more freely.
