Default Ink Annoyance:

Anyone find Ink Showdown extremely annoying and hard? I played it 23 times already and I finally got to 49, then Bowser hit the last one. It actually doesn't seem hard for me, it is just that the time it takes to complete it, and how slow the balls come. Did Anyone beat this yet? Any Pointers?

I did fail this once at 43 hits and was quite annoyed... To beat it I was Peach and basically just hit the ball to the opposite side of where Bowser was standing, thats really all there is too it. Maybe after failing a couple attempts, take a break to recover and then try again.

I know....It just bugs me I was at 49, then he randomly powerjumps across the field, and knocks it out. I mean, What the **** Nintendo?!?

Added after 52 minutes:

I GOT IT! Thanks God for Luma.

Just use the gyro censor control, then you easly aim the balls right. Just remember to use Lob shots for high rings, and Drop shots for rings right behind the net, and go for the smallest ring there is. The smaller the ring, the more points you get. It also doubles the amount of points of rings, if the ball already has passed though a ring in the same shot.. Also try to get behind any rings, if possible, so the AI can shoot the ball through them. (As the AI will always shoot the ball towards you) I've managed to get a total of 619 points.

Dude what the above guy says for ring shot. It's all about getting the multipliers it's better to try and line up 3/4 in a bunch. What usually happens is if there are a few strays you can hit the ball through them and then it magically (more often than not) gets closer to the bunch you're building.

Don't need gyro if you prefer classic controls, I managed to unlock the ring shot costume (is it 700 or 800 for single player in challenge mode? I can't remember anymore) using baby peach with classic controls.

Another suggestion is try to play from the service line (not the baseline/back of the court) as you make the rallies go faster and can consequently get more rings.

Faster because the ball is traveling a shorter distance, but you've got to be quick and starting the rally again wastes time
