The "Dolphin Dancer" achievement requires that I get three dolphins to appear on screen. It seems that the longer I run, the more likely I am to get more dolphins, but I'm curious what actually causes this number to increase. Is it distance, number of fairies collected, number of stars destroyed by rainbow power, or perhaps some combination thereof?

I think # of dolphins = score / 5000. like 1 at 5k, 2 at 10k etc – Josh K Sep 22 '10 at 1:29
It's determined by what you've been drinking :) – juan Sep 22 '10 at 1:36
@Josh This seems to be borne out by experience. Make your comment into an answer and I will accept. – sjohnston Sep 22 '10 at 1:39

Based from my experiences playing the game:

The # of dolphins on screen = Current Score/5000 It seems the dolphins reappear after every 5000-multiple as well.

By this formula it would take 15000 score to get 3 dolphins. Hope this helps

I have never gotten 15,000 but I have gotten 3 dolphins – user10107 Jun 3 '11 at 10:28
