  1. You're having problems with the Steam version of the game? Have you tried our troubleshooting steps?
  2. Characters level up by collecting lava crystal shards (floating green rocks, checkpoints, and finish lines) and not by getting stars. So resetting your progress won't get you to max character level faster.

  5. Thanks for the suggestions! The leaderboards were split up by jump ability in this update: You can see the abilities at the top and selecting one switching to show only times that used that ability. You can see the toy character in the replay, but unfortunately that information isn't posted to the leaderboard (it also doesn't affect your performance, so it's not strictly relevant). I don't think we store level (rank or character level) in anything leaderboard related, so that information isn't available to display. Can you elaborate? Does the game freeze for a bit? Or are the subtitles not displaying at the same time as the voice lines they represent? Or maybe it's because two different sets of subtitles are trying to fire at the same time in intro so it looks weird (GAT TV starts playing, mom and sister interrupt, then GAT TV resumes)? If the game freezes or hangs, you can try submitting a bug in game after it occurs so I can look at the log. Or try verifying game files -- possibly it's barfing while loading a corrupted file.
