I'm working on an in-between waves debris-dodging sequence in my game, but it is going pas the number of available cycles in overscan. I know that vertical scrolling is "expensive", but it doesn't seem like it is doing enough else to explain why I'm using so many cycles. I have pulled out the relevant code into a simplified example. Any thoughts on why this is happening, or ways to achieve the same effect without using so many cycles? Thanks in advance for any advice!
