I have worked out why I am struggling so badly on some levels! It’s the controls. I hit left and it goes too far but just one push of right over corrects that so then I am facing too far right, hit left and it over corrects again. It means that some times when I need a straight entrance I can't get one as it’s not possible to actually get the thing to the centre.

That has little to do with using a keyboard.
The length of you hitting it makes a big difference and this game is very sensitive to every millisecond

If you need to make a correction then you've already made a mistake.
Try to turn in a way that you don't need to struggle with left and right to continue your path.

And yes even for me flying in a straight line is the hardest thing to do in this game, especially at high speeds.
Although i don't see how this is relevant for Xmas-1D.

you need to make quick turns but after I let go of the key to turn the things still carrys on turning. I quick tap to correct this but it does the same in the other direction

Weird... never noticed that on my end.
In fact i think this game is very precise in its controls and reacts exactly the way i want it to.

Maybe you confuse automatic turning with gravity pulling you down?

Have a look here, i even managed to fail on the recording part ;-)

Nimbus World 3-8 Coins
Interesting, I didn't think one would be able to build up momentum that way so I went through the whole level twice to get it (reverse for first coin, then go through the whole level with the extra momentum from the higher "starting point"). Hard to do because you can't bump into anything and there's a lot of narrow passageways That was the last coin I got.

Hey Jay, have you tried the scrapyard yet? Some of those levels make the hard-to-get coins look like EZ mode I didn't even bother with 4-3 or 4-4.
