One orb to get! Crystal Geysers 2 - finding it impossible!

Arrrrgh!
Sorry, please excuse my frustration.

I have just one orb to find in RR - that is Crystal Geysers 2
I just can't figure out a pattern, or a a strategy that works for me.

(Also it's annoying having to Play Crystal Geysers 1 again, each time I come back to it.)

Anyone got any clues or tactics on how to finish this one off?

Yeah Crystal Popcorn 2 can be very frustrating if you don't know how to approach it.

Of course, as always, you have to figure out where they are going to pop by following the steam trails. Remember that the steam only goes in one direction and pops at the next hole it heads to, so you can wait for them to pop at the right moment.
However, the best way (in my experience) to deal with this is by chasing Hunter. Hunter waits a little with grabbing the popcorn after it pops, and so you can steal it from him. This means you deny him a point, and you get one for yourself, so every time you successfully do this you gain a good amount of time that you can use to grab more popcorn between Hunter's attempts. Basically you're just following him and if anything pops out in the meantime you can try to grab that. Try to gain a good lead on him first by stealing from him, then you can feel more at ease chasing popcorn he isn't going for.

That's the best way it worked for me at least; stealing from Hunter is pretty much essential for this.

Good luck if you haven't gotten it yet! Another thing I found helpful is that if you get there ahead enough of Hunter, you can just stand there where the crystal will pop up. You don't need to waste time jumping and you can run away to the next one the second it pops up.

So here we are, 2 years later, and I still can't get this orb!
Its the only thing in the trilogy that I can't complete :-( - blame it on my age. I have tried hundreds and hundreds of times.
Repition with zero progress is one thing that really spoils the enjoyment of the game.
I wish there was a patch for this to make it more attainable.

That’s so frustrating! >_< Maybe if you can post a video of how you do it, we can give you some tips?

At least you’ve been able to get everything else though!
