Just thought I should point out some stuff for anyone who doesn't know. Please add to (or correct) whatever I post, as this is also my first time playing this game as well.
Ever notice that green square on the chest of your Tiggerheart when you anchor? Thats her hitbox. Always anchor when your confronted with a wall of bullets, makes grazing much much easier.
If you run into an enemy, it doesn't kill you, takes away about 15% of your metals.
Bullets also have hitboxs like yourself. You can graze though the edges of most large circular shots as well as large lasers.
When going for a bunch of metals, anchor throw as much as possible.
Most large enemies get knocked away and don't give many metals when hit with another large enemy.
Most isolated enemies are followed by a horde of little guys. Almost always anchor them.
If you hold down the shot button with metals floating freely on screen, they grow in size, so hold off on collecting them until they nearly fall off the screen.
When you die, you lose about 30% of your metals and your bombs are set back to 2. So if your trying to get Faintear to appear during level 1 or 3 after the boss, you normally can't afford to die.
If you die with bombs left over, you aren't bombing enough

Just bought this on XBLA last night. I love vertical shooters like this, but have been horrible at them due to lack of strategy or tips such as this. Many many thanks.
