The "Home" Screen.
« on: October 22, 2007, 12:18:51 am »

So yeah, thanks to the effort of my friend, I found this new area that I didn't know existed.  On the upper path, once you pass the "giant cherries" screen and the clouds screen, when you go left you get to that one area that seems impassible.  Then when you jump all the way out you find a secret block, and can continue on to a new screen where you are at the edge of a cliff, with a sign that says "HOME" at the bottom.  What do I do past this point?  I've tried many things but cannot seem to figure it out.

It's meant to serve as a distraction. The real path is up the cloud screen SOMEHOW. I might turn the game over screen into a Cranky Kong style hint generator in future releases though.

I found it now, and of course I feel stupid for needing help. Heh...  Anyway, you said that it is required to find this screen in order to beat the game.  Since you can't really continue from this screen, do you just fall down the right side and jump back to the save spot?

I've gotten to point of the game that's really frustrating me. So I was gonna try the path from the start that goes down. getting past the spike walls is easy, but how do you go anywhere but dead after that? spike room doesn't leave much to the immagination, and I've already tried landing anywhere there might be invisibricks, and shooting everywhere. there is even this one wierd spike that wiggles, but so still no luck finding a way past that room.

Take a game over screen to carefully look around the room. That should help you.

Well, I guess I'm just going to rack up a couple hundred more kills untill I get it then.

If that can't help you, let me give you a different hint.  Your gun is involved in the solution of that room.

About the only time I've used it other than bosses, in fact XD

XD I finally got it. the gun tip helped. I must have missed last time, but knowing what to do, and I managed to get it on the 3rd time or so.
Exept now I still can't do it, but at least I think I know how, maybe.

Ok, I think this is bugged.
I shot the spike right, and trigger the intermitent blocks. When I watch them there are 6 going up to the thing, but when I actually use them there is only 5, and I can not make the jump to the ledge from the 5th block, not even close enough to make me think it's possable. so is this a bug, and that 6th block is supposed to show up, or am I missing something else? I've already racked up about 200+ kills at least just trying to get past this 1 screen.

If you didn't notice already.. the pattern changes at a certain point, requiring a different course.

I think what confuses people is that the path the blocks go changes if you die early to prevent people from watching the solution after they die.

Yeah, that's pretty much what happened. I kept jumping to my doom before the I saw the 'real' pattern.

Ah, the dangers of trying to find an easy way past a puzzle.
