    i'm stuck at that part in level 1 with the pink metal thingy and that other (yellow?) metal thing blocking my way from moving on. I know that I can use the magnet boots to lift the pink metal thing up, but what do I do after that?:confused:

    You, yourself, closed the doorway right before you got to that section. You can open it the same way you closed it.

    Help.

    I may be able to assist with any questions on here from time to time.

    I won't give any spoilers though.

    I'm underneath a red gear in the sewers. This is right after I made the wooden pin fall to get across. There is a nail holding up a purple wall. If I push it, it will move so that the wall almost falls, but no matter what I do, it won't move all the way to the right, so the wall won't fall.

    What do I do?

    Timing is everything

    notice which way the gear above you is spinning?
    sometimes the best battering ram is a lil bot.
    slam into that bolt!
    but make sure you pull it all the way towards you first.

    Cork Screen

    I'm stuck in the level where there's a cork gun. Don't want to give too much away but anybody know how to get past the "red menace"?

    By the way, this game is amazingly fun!

    Stick to ceiling, pull on the lever on the back of the cork gun to make it turn green. Go into the front, BLAST OFF! You hit the "red menace". It may take a couple tries, but eventually you'll knock him over. After you do this, you have to do something else to advance. You may want to figure it out yourself, but it is really annoying if you fail, you have to fight the menace again. I've posted it below in case you don't want to know.







    SPOILER












    You have to get in the cork gun again, plus you must activate your magnet shoes before you are shot out, so you stick to the wall.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the help. It was amazingly counter-intuitive to keep repeating the same action but I couldn't figure out anything else to do with the tools at hand. That last part is kind of annoying because every time you miss, you have to go through the whole process again.

    Can't wait for the next installment!

    Next time, I'm going to play through to see if I can get all the bonuses. :D

    I'm stuck trying to get past the bowling ball. Keep getting electrocuted. Any ideas?

    I have to say, this really is an exceptional game.

    Hi Steve,

    It took me a while to get past that bit too. There is a ring you need to grapple just before the bowling ball falls off to the left. The best way I found of doing this is to stay on the left of the ball as it starts rolling to the right (grapple, release, grapple, release), but allow yourself to be taken over with it to the right before it hits the wall, then stay on the right (grapple, release) for a couple of seconds before being carried over to the top again in time to see the ring top left of the screen and catching hold of it.
    Hope this helps.

    Steve

    Bowling Ball

    Hello again.
    I've just played through again to check that what I said is right.

    Step 1 Set off
    Staying on the left of the ball at the beginning is not all that crucial, but I find it's the best way of attacking Step 2.
    [​IMG]

    Step 2 Get right
    The main thing is that you're on the right-hand side of the ball when it starts rolling to the left. You can either stick close to the ball and go over the top with it in the last half roll before it hits the wall, or swing from it into the air for a second or two while it hits the wall and rebounds. The crucial thing is that you're on the right as it moves off to the left.
    [​IMG]

    Step 3 Keep right
    The biggest mistake you can make here is going over the top too soon. If you do you'll fly right around the ball and plunge to your death before you even see the ring in Step 4. Stay on the right-hand side of the ball for a couple of seconds. You can even wait for the finger holes in the ball to come round before moving off.
    [​IMG]

    Step 4 Over the top
    If you've waited long enough in in Step 3, it's time to grapple the ball one last time and let it carry you over the top. As you roll over you should see a solitary red ring hanging in the air on the left. Release and hang on to the ring for dear life as the bowling ball plummets below.

    I hope this helps and good luck!

    Steve

    please!

    Where were they for you? I can't seem to find the last one on the first "world".

    Hi Pinchies. My best guess at where you're missing a chip is here:
    [​IMG]
    This was the least obvious one for me. This is the bit towards the end of the level where you have two coin drops one after the other. You get the first coin by climbing on to that ledge to the right which is immediately above the coin slot and barrier, if you remember? What's not obvious is that there is a chip hidden away top left and you can't even see it without swinging out on that bit of wall as shown.
    Is that the one? If not I have a couple of other guesses.
