About 2. Controls 3. Nomenclature 4. Walkthrough ... World One ... World Two ... World Three ... World Four 5. Thanks =============================================================================== 1. A B O U T =============================================================================== In the land of Blobalonia lived an evil King. More than anything, he wanted power. Power only humans had. He invaded the villages and enslaved the blobs in his factory. Beautiful Blobalonia was dying. One day an Earth boy came to save Blobalonia. He was very brave, and carried a lot of candy. The king was not pleased. He had to stop the boy. This is where our story begins. It's not often gamers are treated to something quite as magical as an update to an old NES gem. WayForward and Majesco obviously thought now was the time and I wholeheartedly agree with them. A Boy and His Blob is perfectly suited to the Wii. I won't lavish praise on all of its aspects here, I'll just say this. Go out and buy this game. Buy it new so the developers profit. Trust me, just do it. It's hard to look critically at this game. It carries itself in such a charming manner that it seems like a labour of love that just happened to be released to the public, almost as an afterthought. It is wonderfully organic. With little in the means of storyline or explanations you are dropped straight into the gameplay, and thus, so too you will be dropped straight into this guide. =============================================================================== 2.

N O M E N C L A T U R E =============================================================================== As with any transformation I always give it a name in my head. I happened to use these names throughout my guide, so to avoid any confusion this is what I mean: Blob transformations: ''''''''''''''''''''' Anvil - a large heavy block, useful for smashing objects with. Ball - a tiny football, can fit through narrow gaps. Blobachute - a parachute used for gliding. Boy - a blob form of you, he imitates your motion. Cannon - let's you shoot the boy or a pig blob some distance. Hole - it's a hole, you drop through it. Jack - a mechanical device to lift opjects and reach high switches. Ladder - it's a ladder, you climb up it. Mecha - a walking bipedal vehicle, you want it. Rocket - jump on him to fly! Shield - form a protective shield against projectiles and blobs. Spacehopper - a rubber ball that you bounce upon. Wil float in water. Trampoline - pretty self explanatory, use it to bounce progressively higher. Zorb - a large sphere that you roll around in, will pass over spikes. Enemies: '''''''' Bouncy Blobs - small blobs that bounce on a spot, you can run under them. Dog Blob - when he sees you he'll charge! Floaters - they float in midair making blobachuting difficult. Frog Blob - likes to eat ball blob... Hummingbird - a golden bird that eats your beans! Lumbering Blob - large and slow, drop an anvil on his head to surf him or approach him in a zorb ball to have him throw you. Mirror Blob - an irritating humanoid that mirrors your every movement. Patrolling Blob - they don't jump or bounce, they just crawl. Pig Blob - a little pig blob, they make excellent cannon fodder. There's also a couple who walk hand in hand. I'll let you name them though... =============================================================================== 4. W A L K T H R O U G H =============================================================================== Level 1-1 ''''''''' You begin in your hideout. Head right and climb down the ladder with the blue stars atop. At the base of the ladder head right, jumping on the platforms to avoid the black blob below. Ignore the treasure chest here, we can't get at it just yet. Push the block to the right and jump on top of it to climb the step. Drop down the ledge and stand on top of the block that is blocking the passage entrance. Jump on it five times and stroll over to the blue stars on the ground. Press up to enter the tree. You drop from the moon and are now in darkness so head right and prepare to be warped again. Now wander right again towards the smoking hole in the ground to find your blob. When he's yours I suggest pressing up on the d-pad to give him a hug ^_^. Now run left, up the slopes. At the top push the block onto the black blob below and watch the treasure chest fly out. Blob should eat the chest when you walk past it. Drop down and head right to go back to the blue stars again. Get blob to eat the chest here too. Now head back to where the patrolling black blob was earlier, get blob to eat the chest as well and make your way back to the ladder to the tree house. Blob spews out the three chests and three orbs are released, making their way to the upper levels of your house. When you regain control, walk left to where the wind blew the jar from the stool. Blob will eat the black bean that fell from the jar and transform into a ladder so climb up him! When you reach the top, a new day begins... Walk right and press A to look at the map, you'll automatically be sent to the next level to explore. Challenge Level 1-1 ''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: level design. Head right and jump over the black blob and onto the platform. Jump again past the blob here and follow the red arrow. It's rather linear here, just keep heading to the right and jumping over the black blobs until you reach the exit! When you exit check the stone by your bed for a treat! Level 1-2 ''''''''' You start off next to a wooden sign with a red face painted on it. Press B to feed a red bean to the blob who will transform into a hole for you to drop through. Head right and jump over the black blob to find the first treasure chest. Now walk back to the sign with the ladder painted on it. Hold down Z and select the black bean and feed it to blob to gain access to the higher walkway. Continue right and at the sign with the arrow pointing upwards feed blob another black bean. Climb up to the platform and press C to call the blob, feed him another and climb up again. Head right for the second chest. Feed blob a red bean and drop through him. Drop off the platform to the right and move right to where a black blob is patrolling up and down, feed blob a red bean and watch the black blob walk over him and drop into the water! Don't forget to call blob before you continue, you don't want to fall in the water as well! Jump up the steps and form a ladder at the sign, move left to grab the final chest and then head back right, dropping through the platform to the huge black dog blob below. Use another red bead to drop him into the space below. On the other side form a ladder and run into the golden stars to exit. Challenge Level 1-2 ''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: sketches of hideout. Drop through the platform and drop the dog blob through to the level below. Now keep dropping down until you are on the level above the sign with the arrow on it and the dog blob. Make sure the dog is heading away from you to the right and drop down to his level, now make a drop hole between you and him and he'll fall right through it. Now keep dropping, making sure he doesn't follow you and at the lowest level you can get to head right and use a ladder to climb out and into the golden stars to exit back to the hideout. A small rock will appear in the right corner of the hideout, have a look at it for some beautiful concept art. When you're done, look back at the map on the wall and push onto level three. Level 1-3 ''''''''' Head right to the skull and crossbones sign. In case you hadn't noticed there are spikes in the gap there, so don't drop down! Feed blob an orange bean and trampoline over the spikes. Drop another orange bean and hold up and jump to go higher to the platform above. Do the same again and push the block off the ledge onto the black dog blob below. Head right and drop an orange bean onto the spike pit, it's safe to drop down there then. Trampoline to the platform on the right and then again to the ledge up on the left to find the first treasure chest. You'll have to call blob four times to get him up here. Take a running jump to the right and land back on the ledge. Continue to the right and jump over the two waterfalls. Trampoline up to the ledge and follow it round to the treasure chest, you'll need to use another trampoline to get up there. Head right and use a red bean to drop the black blob into the pool before trampolining up three separate times to the sign with the red balloon painted on. At the junction here take a left and stand on top of the block, chucking a red bean to the left. Let the blob from and hole and push the block through it onto the dog blob below. Drop through the hole yourself and press up in the blue stars. Drop an orange bean and bounce, pressing A at each landing to go progressively higher to the final treasure chest above. Exit through the stars to the right. Now run right and drop an orange bean next to the sign here and trampoline over the waterfall to reach the exit. Challenge Level 1-3 '''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: sketches of boy. Now seems an apt time to mention that you can die if you drop from too high a position onto the ground below. Keep this in mind when trampolining. Anyway, trampoline upwards, following the signs. Form a trampoline in the middle of the firefly lit platform here and keep bouncing upwards. When you're just below the moon on the platform with fireflies on it drop a trampoline on the far left and bounce seven or eight times until you can reach the above level. You have to swerve out to the left as you head upwards and then back right to land safely. It's quite a manoeuvre and may take a few tries to get it right. The golden stars to exit are up here. Level 1-4 ''''''''' Head right and jump over the spike pit. Drop a green bean to pack blob into your backpack. Drop off the cliff and hit A to open your blobachute. Pack the chute again and time your run underneath the black bouncing blob. Run off the cliff and open the chute, gliding to the left, toward the bouncing blob. As it bounces downwards, run over it and grab the first treasure chest. Head up the slope and jump over the spikes. Pack the chute and jump off the edge, gliding as far right as you can to reach the second chest. Glide back down to the floor. Head right and use the chute to glide over the waterfall. Jump over the spikes and form a ladder at the dead end here. Do so again and drop down the tiny gap up here to reach the final treasure chest. Throw a black bean to the right here to climb out to the exit. Challenge Level 1-4 '''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: sketches of boy and blob. Pack a chute and taking a running leap off the edge before opening the chute to begin your descent. There isn't much advice I can offer here except hold up to slow your descent and down to speed it up. Good luck reaching the bottom! Hints: there are only three horizontally moving blobs to contend with. Avoid bouncing off the edges, this can lead to wild trajectories on the rebound. It doesn't matter if a blob hits your chute, just as long as it doesn't touch you. Level 1-5 ''''''''' Run into the thermal to get blown into the air, to the level above. Time the jumps over the two black blobs here and use a trampoline to bounce over the two that are together, reaching the first chest as you do so. Slide down the slope here and use a trampoline to bounce through the platform, deceptive, I know. Continue to the thermals, using the first one to take you to the second chest. Drop back down and glide on the thermals across the gaps. Drop between the spikes into the pit and use a red bean, twice. Drop an orange bean just left of the exit stars and bounce, pressing A once only, onto the platform with the final chest on. Drop back to the right to exit. Challenge Level 1-5 ''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: level design. Climb out of the pit with a ladder and head left so the empty chamber is above you. Climb up to it with another ladder and up again. Time your run under the black frog blob, it is possible, just tricky. Climb up to the level above and drop a bean on the very edge, climbing up and jumping left to the platform. Now ladder up to the empty enclosure above and once more, being careful to avoid the two patrolling blobs above. Exit to the right. Level 1-6 ''''''''' Run right, dropping down and continue on to the first chest. Easy. Now see the golden hummingbird above? He's gonna eat any bean you care to drop so head back to where you began and trampoline onto the level above. Head to the bird and make a running jump over the black blob there. Jump over the swamp and drop a red bean next to the patrolling blob to sink him. Keep jumping over the pits until you reach the area with the dog blob patrolling a walkway above a spike pit. Toss a red bean up to the dog and get blob to eat it. Now trampoline up there and drop a red bean just above that tiny extension into the spike pit so when you drop, you do so safely. Eat the second chest and trampoline out of there. Trampoline onto the level above the signs. Drop an orange bean and a hummingbird will come and snatch it. Move a little to the left and try again. You can reach a point where he won't eat it so call blob and transform into the trampoline. Bounce three times and head far right, you'll land just on the lip of the ledge, sweet! Use the thermals to glide over the spike pit and drop through the platform just before the three snails on the ground. Toss an orange bean into the middle of the spike pit below and to the left. Now jump on this until the dog blob spots you, he'll charge and should run straight under you and off the edge of the cliff here so run on to the third chest. Toss another orange bean into the spike pit and bounce out to the exit. Challenge Level 1-6 ''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: none - part 1/4. Toss an orange bean immediately where you stand. Bounce three times and jump right over the sloped ledge. Set another trampoline in the middle of the wooden sign and bounce four times to the platform on the right. Take a running jump right, to the platform with the arrowed sign. Drop a green bean here and jump and glide to the right, but pull back left quickly or else you'll hit a wall of blobs! Land safely underneath them and exit. Level 1-7 ''''''''' Throw a white bean down to turn blob into a ball, pick him up and kick him off the ledge, he should roll over the spikes and off to the right somewhere. Jump over the gap and toss a black bean through the branches to the level below. Call blob and make him eat it to form a ladder to the lower level. Throw another white bean next to the wooden sign and pick up ball blob. Kick him into the row of enemies to squish them all. Form a ladder and climb up to the frog blob above, he's immune to ball blob so you're just going to have to wait until he's near the far left of his run, jump over him and quickly throw a black bean to climb out to safety. By the sign throw a white bean and kick blob ball towards the spikes. Frog blob will lick him up and bounce off revealing a treasure chest so make blob eat it by throwing a bean up there and having him transform back. Drop down the narrow passage and use ball blob to squash the three bouncing blobs there. Trampoline up here twice to find the second chest. Drop down and continue right jumping over the swamp. Run past the thermal and stand on the very edge of the drop into the swamp. Toss a black bean onto the small section of vertical wall on the other side of the gap, the bean will bounce back toward you landing on the other side of the gap near to the sign. It's important to follow this procedure or you aren't going to be able to access the ladder you create! Now ride the thermal up and run down the slope, climb down the ladder and open the chest. Climb back up and kick ball blob underneath the small block here into the spike pit. Throw an orange bean into there and form a trampoline. Now run back up the slope and jump onto your trampoline and out the other side, past the hummingbird to the exit. Challenge Level 1-7 ''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: none - part 2/4. Run up the slope and drop down the other side. Walk a little to the left so you now have the slope in the background. Kick ball blob right, over the spikes. Toss a black bean after him so it lands on clear ground. Run up the slope and jump over the spikes, climbing down your ladder. Make a trampoline at the end of this passage and bounce to the upper level. Now turn around and kick ball blob at the wall behind you, he should rebound and roll down the slope coming to rest in a spike pit there. Chuck an orange bean down there and call blob to make him eat it (press right on the d-pad to look at blob cam to make sure he's a trampoline) and drop down on top of him. Bounce out of the pit and come to rest under the frog blob. Throw a white bean through the gap, to the frog below. Call blob, make him into ball blob, when he gets eaten call him again to destroy the first frog. Now throw a bean from the slope through the gap to the second frog. Make blob eat this too and destroy this frog in the same manner. Form a ladder up to where this frog was sitting and up the cliff to the right. Use ball blob to destroy the patrolling black blobs here and exit. Level 1-8 ''''''''' Run onto the platform it make it fall. Head right and use some quick jumping to pass over the platforms here. Use a ladder to climb up and quickly jump over some more falling platforms. Throw an orange bean in the little pit where the thermal is, bounce up three times to reach a platform where the first chest is. Drop down a gap near to the hummingbird and kick ball blob into the path of the dog blob. Throw a black bean through the branches here and let it sink down to the next level, get blob to eat it and climb down, making the dog blob charge at you. He should run down to the alcove with the second chest in it. Kick ball blob down there and get him to eat it. Climb out of the pit and head out through a falling platform. Now plant a trampoline at the far right and bounce up to the next level. Bounce again five times here and jump over the row of bouncing blobs, over the falling platforms. Kick ball blob down there and squish all the blobs, or, more specifically the one with the golden haze around it. Hmmm, I wonder what he's hiding... chest number three! Bounce out of the pit when you're done. Head right and ride the falling platform down, making a quick exit to the right at the blobachute sign and glide down to the exit below. If you're not confident of your gliding skills then hold up to go slower. Challenge Level 1-8 ''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: none - part 3/4. A rather disappointingly easy challenge level, it only requires rapid jumping skills! Jump over the spike pit using the two falling platforms. Continue your descent over five more falling platforms and drop down the curved slope near the ravens. Head over the spike pit, there are eight platforms easily attacked and drop down with the platform on the far right. Head left via five falling platforms then three more over a swamp to the exit. A cake walk. Level 1-9 ''''''''' Drop a yellow bean to form the anvil. Push it off the edge onto the bouncing blob. Squish! Drop down yourself and push the anvil far to the right so you can jump up the step. Run under the hummingbird and drop another anvil through the crumble block in the gap. Drop down and push it to the right again to break another block. Don't drop down here just yet though, jump over the gap and before going through the next tunnel trampoline upwards to find the first chest. Head back to where we broke the block and drop down, heading into the tree where the blue stars are. Form a trampoline and head up. Do so again and drop down the other side, onto the chest. Call blob three times and he'll float through the wall. Make him eat the chest and then trampoline back over to the other side again and exit through the blue stars. Run right and push an anvil off the edge onto the black blob. Form a trampoline and bounce upwards three times to get enough height to clear the cliff. At the anvil sign drop a yellow bean and push anvil blob onto the huge monster below. If you hit him centrally the anvil will embed into him providing a safe platform for you to drop onto and ride the monster to the edge of the spike pit. Run down the slope under the hummingbird and trampoline upwards to the platform. Push an anvil of the edge to break the blocks below and gain access to the third chest. Challenge Level 1-9 ''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: part 4/4 - video footage of real life boy ^_^ . Drop an anvil onto the middle blob and fall onto this. Jump over the other blob and press on right. Drop another anvil on the dog blob and push it far over to jump up the step. Drop an anvil onto the huge blobs head and surf on it to cross the gap. Drop down with the falling platform. Push both blocks as far left as you can and drop a yellow bean in the centre of the leftmost one, thereby forming a crude staircase. Follow the passage and you'll come to a load of bouncing black blobs. Make an anvil on the floor and push it along slowly, as a blob bounces on it, it will be elevated to the level above, clearing a path for you to the exit. Level 1-10 '''''''''' Deep red sky, tense music, can you feel the build up to something big here? Pack a blobachute and take a running jump. At the bottom use the trampoline to get to the platform beneath the bouncing blob. Set up another trampoline here and bounce twice to gain enough height to jump over the blob onto the right side of it. Form an anvil and gradually push it left, edging the blob off the platform to the level below. Push the anvil onto its head when it drops to find chest number one. Head right and throw a red bean on the bridge to drop the three black blobs into the water below. Make a trampoline just next to the slope blocking your way and double bounce over it onto the platform on the other side. Push an anvil onto the dog blobs head. Chest number two is revealed. Head right, up the slope. Drop an anvil on the crumble block and form a trampoline by the wooden sign, under the firefly. Bounce up five times to reach chest number three. Jump to the right, onto the falling platform and ride it all the way down to the ground. Head right to exit. Boss - Snake Blob ''''''''''''''''' Form an anvil and push it right. When you see snake blob make a move run to the left and he'll bash his head on the anvil. Now form a trampoline and bounce onto the coil to the left of the sparking wire above you. Snake blob will take a dive at you and hit the electricity as you jump left away from him! The wire will break and snake blob will jump up out of sight, he'll move right and left casting a shadow on the floor. At the extremities of his path he'll drop down, so place a red bean on the shadow here and he'll drop right down into the water finishing him off for good. In the moonlight give blob a hug for all of his hard work. Plod on to the right down the slopes and into the house overlooking the city. Climb up into the attic of the house and drop down on the other side. Descend the ladders to beneath the ground to find the new world map. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- W O R L D T W O ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Level 2-1 ''''''''' Head right past the street lights and use a pink bean to transform into a space hopper! Bounce (A button) over the steps and continue on this level to find the first chest. Head back and descend the steps and drop down the open manhole. Bounce over the gap and follow the cave round to the water. Hop onto spacehopper blob and float over the water. Bounce over to the platform with the arrow sign on it and keep moving left. Hop up to the platform over the black floating blob and hop up once more. Hop left to the second chest. Drop right and slide down the slope. You can squash the two bouncing blobs with spacehopper blob. Hop up the three falling platforms and push the block here off the edge to the left. Push it again, right this time, onto the head of a dog blob below to reveal chest number three. Now simply head upwards and push the stone block far over to the right, hop onto it on spacehopper blob and exit. Challenge Level 2-1 '''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: city artwork. Note: I find this level fiendishly hard. I died a lot of times before I completed it. Jump onto spacehopper blob and hop right being careful not to fall into the pits below. If the gap is small, don't jump, just hop over. If the gap is large then jump and hop at the same time. The sequence for crossing gaps here is: J-J-H-J-J-H-H (platform with black blob)- H-J-H-H-H (reverse slant slope)-J-J (platform with jumping black blob)- J-J-J-J-J-J-J exit (phew!) Level 2-2 ''''''''' The first time you have a full circle of beans! Jump over the blob and drop an anvil onto the crumbling blocks. Drop down and take some running jumps over the water. Drop a black bean and form a ladder up to the alcove where the dog blob is wandering. Form a hole between yourself and the dog and when he turns around and sees you he'll charge, drop through the hole and demolish the block wall. Head through, pack a chute and run off the edge, hugging the right hand wall to land on a ledge below. Take a running jump to the right and open your chute to glide to the first chest. Now drop a trampoline in the ray of light here and bounce up three times to reach the upper level, from here pack a chute and take a running jump to the right. Trampoline up to the platform and kick ball blob through the narrow gap, killing the floating black blob and knocking through the wall at the same time. Set a trampoline on the crumble blocks and jump up to the ledge, push an anvil off here and head down the newly opened passage. Use spacehopper blob to cross the water and jump left at the ray of light. Go over the falling platforms and push an anvil onto the block wall from above. Head towards the blue stars. Use a trampoline to reach the second chest. You can tell the levels are getting longer now can't you. Back through the blue stars run right, up the slopes to the dog blob. Jump onto spacehopper blob and loiter near to the wall separating you from the dog. When he spots you and begins to charge bounce right and make a quick left at the bottom to avoid him dropping on you. Go through the wall he destroyed and drop an anvil on him to find chest number three. Bounce up out of the pit and to the exit on the right. Challenge Level 2-2 ''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: cave concept art. Run left until you're right next to the small gap in the wall. Kick ball blob down there and he'll get lifted in the thermal and get blown off the screen to the right. Throw a black bean through the branches into the path of dog blob and call your blob for him to come and form a ladder to the lower level. Jump over the dog blob and run right stopping just left of the three bouncing blobs. Drop a red bean and go through the hole, use ball blob to squish the three bouncing blobs and stand in the middle of this platform. Throw a black bean through the narrow gap on the right, it will bounce off the wall and land underneath you. Get blob to eat it to provide a ladder to the exit. Level 2-3 ''''''''' Go up the slopes and stairway and use a ladder to climb up to the next level. Now there's a pressure operated switch and a rock nearby. In true Zelda fashion push the block onto the switch and go through the opened door. Use ball blob to squish the two bouncing blobs here and throw a yellow bean onto the switch so the weight of the anvil will open the door. Descend the stairs and use spacehopper blob to cross the water. Feed ball blob to frog blob and watch as the enemy above is destroyed and then squash the frog yourself. Trampoline to the upper level and push the rock onto the left hand switch below. Continue through the newly accessible doorway and make some carefully timed jumps under the floating blobs here. Use a trampoline to jump to the blue stars in the only free vertical tunnel above you. The doors here are on a timed sequence, controlled by the patrolling blob walking over the switches in the passage at the very bottom of the screen. After the second door, hold left and when the horizontal door slides over the spikes you'll stay put on the tip of it. Now it's trivial to follow the opening doors to the first chest. Exit through the blue stars. Blobachute off the edge here and use a yellow bean to make an anvil in the tiny gap here. Now push the rock over the anvil, this will take little pushes at a time to safely get underneath the oscillating blob. Push the block onto the switch and use a red bean to descend to the passage below. Now run over the redundant switch and stop as you enter the large cavern. Drop a trampoline and hug the wall to find a small alcove with the second chest in it. Blobachute back down and run into the ray of light. Stop and drop through with a hole here and use spacehopper blob to cross the water to the final chest. Challenge Level 2-3 ''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: house concept art. Drop a trampoline in the middle of the crystals on the floor in front of you. Bounce three times, through the gap to the ledge above. Trampoline up again and on the third bounce you'll land on the falling platform so quickly jump right onto the next and right again to safety. From here toss an orange bean onto the lip of the spiked ledge and bounce up and down on the trampoline. When dog blob sees you he'll charge so bounce onto the platform and let him wipe out all blobs on screen. Drop back down onto the lip and throw an orange bean down the cliff behind you. Press right on the d-pad to see the blob cam and where you have to aim to land it just right! When you land, just let the boy bounce of his own accord and you'll lose enough height to safely make the ledge on your right. From here bounce upwards and after four bounces you can clear the floating blob here and exit. Level 2-4 ''''''''' Drop a red bean to be eaten by zorb blob. Sprint forward tapping A to get a speed burst and clear the wall. Now drop into the U-shaped pit here and zorb upwards and out onto the firefly lit platform. Here head left, through another U-pit to the first chest. Now speed ball right into a huge U-pit. Climb out of it with speed bursts and you'll be beneath a hummingbird. Drop into the U-pit here and speed burst up the right wall to land on an upper level. Exit zorb blob and push an anvil off the edge here. Ride the falling platform down and go through the newly opened pathway, to the blue stars. It's rather simple here, use a ladder to get to the chest and set a hole to exit! Back at the hummingbird, head right, past the arrow sign and follow the natural layout of the course. Shoot up through the fireflies to find the second chest just below the cave ceiling. Now drop back down and head right, getting tossed by the monster there towards the exit. Challenge Level 2-4 ''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: cave concept art. Drop through the platform before you even reach the bouncing blobs. Head into zorb blob and charge up through the floating blobs and the crumbling wall to the level above. Squish the three patrolling blobs here and exit zorb blob to jump over the step. Continue in zorb blob, following the only passage you can. You'll be thrown by a monster into a thermal and blown up to a new area. Head left and squash a couple of frogs and anything else in your way to the exit here. Level 2-5 ''''''''' Blob will eat the light in front and act like a lamp, give him a hug for being so useful. Throw a yellow bean onto the switch above and make him eat it, the weight of the anvil will open the door. Do the same in the passageway and drop down at the end. Beware of the water here, it's hard to spot it first time around. Never mind, spacehopper blob will see you across safely. Use a ladder to the higher platform and bounce across to the first chest with spacehopper blob. Drop down to the sign and pack a chute. Run (but don't jump) off the edge and midway down glide into the alcove on the right. Use a red bean to drop through the floor to the second chest. Climb out with a ladder and continue your glide down. Run up the slope and turn around, kicking ball blob down it. He'll end up beneath you so feed him a yellow bean on the switch to open the door. Drop through the floor and drop the dog blob down a level into the pit. Climb up to the rock and push it onto the dog blob via two holes. The final chest is revealed. Challenge Level 2-5 ''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: none - part 1/4. Jump the gaps to the sign. Pack a chute and deploy it when you're riding the thermal. There isn't much to say here, just follow the thermals along, avoiding the blobs, it isn't too hard. Level 2-6 ''''''''' Jump the spiked pit and toss an orange bean under the jumping blob to elevate him to the space above. Continue right and trampoline the next black blob into the ceiling to squash him. Move on to the signpost. Use a green bean to create jack blob and push the circular platform above out the way by pressing A. Trampoline up to this level and run under the black blob here. Toss a yellow bean onto the switch above and pass through the door that opens. Form another anvil on the switch at the end of the tunnel to open the door, when the pig blob walks through, call your blob to trap piggy where he can't hurt you. Now use jack blob to remove the stone blocking your ascent. Trampoline your way upwards, using a single bounce only to avoid the spiked ceiling. Bounce up to the firefly platform and jack the switch on the ceiling there. When the black blob hits the floor, transform your blob back. Now drop a red bean underneath the bouncing black blob to let him pass through to the crumbling blocks, clearing the way to your first chest. Backtrack and go to the sign with the red arrow on it. Here you need to use the jack to fill the gap so you can push the block over it to the switch on the other side. Before you head up, go to the lower level and push the block on the switch there. Make an anvil on the second switch to get access to the second chest. Trampoline upwards and go to the area with the trapped dog blob. Here you need to jack the stone, make an anvil on the right most switch and then stand on the left switch forcing the dog to charge and break the wall. Trampoline the tiny bouncing blob up a level and drop another trampoline underneath the one that's hiding the final chest. When he reaches the apex of his jump you need to jump under him but over the trampoline and onto the switch there. Squelch! Chest number three; check. To exit run right, a huge blobby blob is blocking your path though. Drop into the alcove beneath him and jack him right up to the ceiling to squish him good and leave you free to exit. Challenge Level 2-6 ''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: none - part 2/4. Kick ball blob into the thermal on the left, he'll come to rest in the narrow passage up there. Stand on the switch to pinball him across, quickly jump left to avoid being killed by exploding blobs. Now run right of the switch and make a hole in the floor to drop to safety. Go up the slope and run over the gap. Kick ball blob over the spikes and let frog blob eat him up. Now stand on the little rock in the middle of this platform and throw a yellow bean onto the switch above you on your left. You'll rise with the gate and can jump to the upper level (I know, I thought I was going to get squashed doing this as well). Now you can run right and drop to the exit. Level 2-7 ''''''''' Drop through the platform and zorb your way up the curved slopes, continuing until you squash the three patrolling black blobs. Follow the course until you reach some blue stars. Drop an anvil onto the monsters head and surf him left to the first chest. Repeat and surf him to the exit on the right, making a careful dismount as he heads back the other way. Head right and zorb your way into the five monsters here. They'll toss you to progressively higher levels. Stop short of the sign and trampoline up into the fireflies to find another blue starred exit. Get into zorb blob and run through the tunnel squashing everything in your wake. Trampoline up at the end and drop down the other side. Get into zorb blob to make your way to the chest. Now make a trampoline on the lip at the base of the slope, it is possible to do so! Bounce your way to the exit. Zorb your way past the signs and build up enough momentum to make the jump to the high ledge with the blue stars on it. Now speed zorb your way far to the right over all the gaps to the final chest. Exit through the blue stars then form a hole in the platform to exit the level. Challenge Level 2-7 ''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: none - part 3/4. Jack the stone above you and push the block onto the left switch. Form an anvil on the right one and pass through the opened double door. Jack the huge monster up a level and let him fall into the spike pit. Put an anvil on his head and surf it over to the other side. Climb the slope and prepare for some rapid jumping. Run out on the first stone as it moves out, wait a second and jump to the right just as the other pops out, Repeat this process to get near to the exit. The bottom two move out at the same time so stay on the right hang platform above these and hold right, as the platform retracts you'll swerve into the exit alcove, avoiding the two bottom platforms altogether. Level 2-8 ''''''''' Jack the whole rock formation in front of you upwards. Make a ladder to the rock above and push it through a hole. Drop it on top of the black blob and grab chest number one. Use a ladder and jack up the red rock wall, it'll move another at the same time so head under them to the edge of the water. Use spacehopper blob to get to the other side and jack the rock up to the highest level. Climb up there yourself with some ladders and push the rock onto the switch. Jack up the red rock and stop near to frog blob. Jack the rock up to the highest level and using spacehopper blob, bounce up to it. Push it right off two ledges and into the back of frog blob, He'll be pushed down the slope and the rock will move onto his head squashing him and revealing the second chest. Cross the water and jack up the red rock you find, go as far up as you can. Turn around and run up the new slope behind you to find chest number three, reach it with spacehopper blob. Jack up the same red wall again and run right along the long red walkway that's appeared to find the exit. Challenge Level 2-8 '''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: part 4/4 - light switch (play levels in the dark with luminescent blob). Run down the slope and, from a safe distance, form an anvil in the path of the first blob you encounter. Push the anvil down the next couple of slopes before descending yourself. Push the anvil into the path of the bouncing blob to raise him to the same level as the patrol blob, then run over the falling platform. Toss another yellow bean onto the crumbling blocks and let the black blob destroy them. Form and anvil on the button and stand on the lowered door. Call blob and you'll be raised with the door. Jump over the black blob below you and place an anvil as a step to the platform with the switch on it. Place an anvil on the switch and go to the other side of the door. Call blob and wait for the horizontally moving black blob to come on screen, then toss a bean towards it causing the hummingbird to collide with it and destroy both parties. Now you're free to push an anvil on the monsters head and ride him to the exit. Level 2-9 ''''''''' Jack the stone and trampoline up there. Launch the black blob here into the ceiling with a trampoline. Head right at the top and drop through two floors. Jack up through the two floating blobs and trampoline up to the left. Jack the button on the ceiling here. On the other side of the door that opens jack the stone above you and trampoline upwards and through the ceiling above the spikes. Drop the stone through a hole onto the floating black blobs below and push the next stone off the edge again. Drop down after it and push the stone through a hole in the floor onto dog blobs head. Grab chest number one. Head back to where you just fell and plant a trampoline, bouncing four times to the blue stars in the alcove above to the right. Jack the stone and trampoline up to the second chest. Exit through the blue stars. Head left and drop a trampoline into the gap, push the rock onto it to send it to the highest platform, follow it and push it off the edge onto the black blobs below. Drop down and form a couple of holes, jacking the stone when you get there. Trampoline upwards five times to reach the blue stars at the top. Enter to find the final chest. Slide down the slope to exit. Head right and jump across the gap, use a trampoline to follow the red arrow upwards. Avoid the black blobs and jack the stone. Drop through the floor and drop the patrolling blob down a level onto the switch. Follow the tunnel to the exit. Challenge Level 2-9 ''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: title art. Drop the block down, squishing the patrolling blob and again to remove the row of floating black blobs. Avoid hitting the horizontal floating blob, but the dog beneath it to wipe them both out simultaneously. You can leave the block here now if you wish, it has served its purpose. Continue to drop down each level and before the very final drop use a red bean far right, drop as the dog walks away from you. Exit on the right. Level 2-10 '''''''''' Move left and toss a red bean onto the platform, dropping the black blob onto the switch below. This releases the caged blob above which will go on to destroy the wall on the right. Trampoline up through the fireflies to find the first chest. Drop back down and blobachute off the cliff. Stick to the right wall and slow your descent, you'll pass through a narrow gap at the top of the slope with all the black blobs on it and come to chest number two. Chute off again and come to rest on the edge with the branches on it, just above the sign at the base of the cliff. Run right to the spike pit and push an anvil onto the little piggy blobs head. Now wait for pig blob to pass under the oscillating blob. When the oscillating blob is at the upper extremity of its path take a running jump onto the anvil, you should just make it. Phew! Jump off at the other end, by the hummingbird. Now you have to make the bird collide with the black blobs, but this is difficult to do without ending up caught in the explosion yourself. Stand directly underneath the bird and throw diagonally up-right. Now blobachute off the edge, hit the wall and rebound onto the path below. Make dog blob charge at you, as he hits the lip and contracts jump over him and sprint left to the other lip for safety. Push the rock onto the switch and blobachute down into the new area. Land by the fireflies on the left and trampoline upwards, chute down the other side to find chest number three. Continue to chute downwards, into the darkness... Boss - Lion Blob '''''''''''''''' When the lights come on move left and wait for him to swipe at you, as he does dodge it and throw a red bean to get into zorb blob. Power up the slope on your left and jump off the slant up here, to the right. You should land on a platform with a bouncing black blob and a switch. Get out of zorb blob and stand on the switch, a horizontal stone will retract and the bouncing black blob will continue on its extended path into the boss. Quickly get into zorb blob again as he'll most likely shoot projectiles from the tip of the tentacles which won’t hurt you if your in zorb. Now zorb to the far right where another bouncing black blob is. Stand here a while and the boss will stroll underneath you. Simply wait here and he'll jump up at you, collide with the bouncing black blob and boom! Exit via the door on the floor level. You appear on a ledge in the night sky. Unfortunately you can't hug blob but you do have a new brown bean to try out, I wonder what it does...? Update (17/10/10) ''''''''''''''''' So a couple a people have emailed me saying that my method just won't work for them. Well I've replayed and stand by my words! However, Ruud Althuizen was kind enough to post this message on the message boards. I hope he doesn't mind me including this into the guide! "I've seen multiple explanations how to beat the Lion blob in world 2. None of those really worked for me, so I combined them into something that did. To get the lion to hit the outer two mines I followed the multiple guides: 1. Throw your Zorb bean left, wait for the lion to lunge at you and then step in. 2. Go left up the ramp and then go all the way to the right of the level. 3. Stand on the raised platform so the lion can't hit you, throw a hole bean below the mine blob and wait for the lion to get hit. The lion may be missed a few times, but he'll get hit after a while. 4. Now act fast as the lion will start to jump. Throw a Zorb bean to the left, and jump in. 5. Go all the way to the left platform of the level, step out and hug the wall. The lion will jump into the mine blob. Now my part: 6. Enter the Zorb again and go to the middle mine blob. This time the lion won't lunge at you with his tentacles and he's done jumping, instead he launches blobs at you that just go besides you. So step on the switch and just wait. You may have to stand a bit on the left/right side of the switch to not get hit though." Thanks for the tip Ruud. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- W O R L D T H R E E ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Climb down the ladder to find the world map. Level 3-1 ''''''''' The sign suggests using rocket blob, but we don't want any of that do we. Oh, you do? Fine! Jump on rocket blob and follow the ceiling towards some multicoloured lights, go over the spike pit and there be chest number one. Head back on rocket blob and do a U-turn to travel underneath the level you were just on, follow the natural curvature of the course and take a sharp right as you are forced to travel vertically downwards. You'll pass through a breakable wall and head up to chest number two. Escape using a hole. Break through the wall below using a rocket and head over the water following the only possible route. When you pass through a wall, going straight downwards, dismount and throw a red bean to create a hole above the switch in the alcove below. Push the pink block onto it and continue upwards on a rocket. Keep heading upwards and dismount on the platform above the three floating black blobs. Push an anvil off the right onto the topmost one and take a rocket over the spike pit. Follow the course, passing over another spike pit with two dog blobs in it. Blobachute down there and land on the platform. Drop off to the left as the blob moves away from you and enter the blue stars. Rocket over the water, through the holes in the wall, you need to be precise; if you haven't worked out already, crashing into a wall will ultimately destroy the rocket. At the far end is chest number three. Run right, to the edge of the spike pit. Jump on a rocket and don't deviate at all, you'll smash through a wall and land by the exit. Challenge Level 3-1 '''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: Blobalonia concept art. Yeaaah, you guessed it; a maze to be navigated by the rocket blob. Head up the slope, when you flatten out at the top go low then high to avoid the black blobs, don't scrape the ceiling because stalactites are falling. Head down the other side then as you flatten out again at the bottom stay high to avoid the huge monsters. Drop to the exit. Easy peasy. Level 3-2 ''''''''' Run along until you come to the series of falling platforms. Pack a chute and on the third platform along jump as it falls and chute downwards into the passage. Kick ball blob to squish all the black blobs here and enter the blue stars. Use ball blob to destroy the black frog blob revealing chest number one. Use ball blob again to clear the exit. Head right using rocket blob to ascend the slope, at the junction at the top take the right fork and drop ball blob onto the floating black blobs that block your path. Chute down there and jump over the two, ahem, 'friendly' blobs. Use a hole to drop onto the falling platform, ride these down until you can jump right to firm ground. Use rocket blob to navigate the obstacle course ahead of you. As you head upwards for the first time, stay on the upper route and pull a quick turn by the multicoloured lights to reveal an unexpected path to the third and final chest. Backtrack and fly over the dog blob, through the crumbling blocks to the blue stars. Use ball blob to clear a pathway and when in the huge cavern use rocket blob to fly right, into the wind. Exit through the blue stars. Can we hug them all ^_^ Sadly not. Never mind, the exit is here anyway. Challenge Level 3-2 '''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: blob house concept art. Toss a trampoline off the edge and jump onto it. Bounce four of five times to lose enough height to dismount safely. Repeat again using the ledge as cover from the blobs as you bounce back upwards. Bounce four times onto the platform above the wall of floating black blobs. Now throw a trampoline far to the right, so it is formed in the middle of the spike pit. Take a running jump to it and bounce until you have enough height to make the alcove on the right. Throw a trampoline into the pit with the monster and use it to bounce out. Now form a trampoline as close to the wall on the right as you can so you will easily miss the dual blobs above. Finally plant a trampoline just right of the blob on the left, bounce up and over the two floating blobs to the exit. Level 3-3 ''''''''' Use ball blob to destroy frog blob and drop through to the blue stars. Run down the two slopes and throw a bean at the bottom black blob, the hummingbird will collide leaving chest one free. Run back and go right, jumping over the blobs on the way. You'll come to an area with two blue star doors. Take the right hand one. Drop left off the platform and straight into the blue stars. Drop down and hug left to curve onto the platform below. Enter the blue stars. Jack the switch above you and run right, stand on the boundary where the blobs are turning round and call blob, you'll rise with the door there. Toss a white bean straight up so it lands on the tiny edge with you and use ball blob to squish the black blobs below. Grab chest number two and jack the ceiling switch to exit. Leave via the blue stars on the same level. Drop down and run right past the blue stars, into those further right. Drop down the platforms and into the blue stars by the blob dog. Push the block off the edge to the right, onto the chest concealing blob dog. Don't worry about the patrolling blob on the same platform as you, just jump over him as he gets close by. Open chest number three and leave through the blue stars on the right. Toss a bean into the wall of black blobs to get hummingbird to destroy them. Jump over the three platforms and use ball blob to destroy frog blob. Exit through the blue stars. Throw a jack into the middle of the spike pit and jump onto it to get to the blue stars. Kick ball blob to drop the stalactites and clear the way to the blue stars and (finally) the exit. Challenge Level 3-3 '''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: background concept art. Drop right, as you go through the gap veer left slightly and then hard right. Go left and down through the passage of blobs. Follow the curved path with the patrolling blob on it and make a hard right followed by a hard left followed by a hard right. Now, we are back to dodging floating black blobs again. Stick to the left wall to pass the first two horizontally moving ones. At the bottom of the south-east diagonal make a hard left again and finally land on safe ground. Make a running jump to the right, open your chute, bounce off the wall and hold left to land safely by the exit. Level 3-4 ''''''''' Drop a yellow bean to form cannon blob! Walk into his mouth and aim using the nunchuk at the wall. Fire with B to blow through them both. A little further on, blow your way into the box above with the blue stars. Fire yourself across the water at a 45 degree angle to land on the platform on the other side, drop through to the chest with a hole. Fire yourself out, and again to cross the water. Exit. Plant a cannon in the spike pit and let it fire pig blob through the wall. Don't die in this passage or else the pig blob required to get chest two doesn't respawn on your side of the wall. Use another canon to clear the two floating blobs guarding chest two. Drop pig blob down another level and use him as cannon fodder to clear this corridor. At the end jack the wall right up and run on the new platform to a single floating green platform. Drop a cannon here and fire yourself upwards into the cavity. Jack the roof here and run right until you're drenched in multicoloured lights and are standing on green grass. Call blob and fire yourself up the narrow passage to chest number three. Jack the roof to exit and continue running right. Let dog blob charge into the water and toss a red bean into the pig blobs den to have them all drop into the spiked pit. Push an anvil onto their heads and ride it to the exit. Challenge Level 3-4 '''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: none - part 1/3. Time your run over the three switches to let the black floating blob progress with you. Raise a jack between the two floating platforms to cross to the wall the blob will destroy. Ride the falling platform down and jump right. Jack the ceiling switch and release it as the floating blob is above the fat one. Now jack the fat one upwards into the floating one. Set the jack to a minor height to use it as a step to the platform where the fat blob was. Jack the stone up to just above the second tiny platform and hit the switch to knock it down to you. Push it onto the switch and head right onto the extended platform. Jump over the two falling platforms and then over the next five (!) to the exit. Level 3-5 ''''''''' Canon through the three walls. Use a ladder to get up to the block and push it onto the switch. Use another ladder and drop through a hole onto the extended platform. Push an anvil from here onto the crumbling blocks below to get to the first chest. Cannon straight up out of there. Cannon yourself upwards through the blocks and diagonally through the coloured lights, over the water. Aim high and left from here to find the second chest. Cannon yourself back over the water and straight upwards on the other side to find some blue stars. Cannon under the stalactites and through the monster on patrol. Shoot over the huge gap and straight upwards several times to break the blocks covering chest number three. Zorb your way through the final stalactite tunnel and exit. Immediately fire yourself into the blob in front and straight upwards through the passage he blocked. Use zorb blob to power down the slope, you'll be thrown and will continue through a stalactite tunnel. Cannon up through the final crumble blocks to the exit. Challenge Level 3-5 '''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: none - part 2/3. Cannon straight upwards and again, over the spike pit and through the wall. Stand to the left of the small spike pit with pig blob in it and toss a cannon down there. Pig blob will break the wall, freeing up a path for you. Drop down and jack the ceiling switch to create some steps up to a new area. Fire yourself at a 45 degree angle through the gap in the floating black blobs, you'll land safely and slide down a slope. Turn around and run left to the exit. Another easy challenge level. Level 3-6 ''''''''' Slide down the slope, there's nothing else you can do. At the bottom jump on a rocket and head downwards towards the bright lights, push right and you'll see a narrow gap, fly through here to the first chest. Sneaky. I know. Fly back again and head upwards, over the row of floating blobs. Eventually you'll stop underneath another pair of, ahem, 'friendly' blobs again. Use the cannon to chip away the crumbling blocks and let them walk into the switch. Fire yourself from the same cannon straight down the new hallway and you'll land in a safe zone, surrounded by stalactites. Cannon past the last two and directly upwards at the end. Two levels from the top head left and use rocket blob to cross the water to chest number two. Head back and continue upwards. Jack the ceiling switch and drop down through the platform. Blobachute downwards past the spiked platforms and usual floating blobs. Make a hard right at the bottom and rocket up the slope there. Make a U-turn through the coloured lights to find a spike pit and a dog blob. Jack the dog blob upwards and rocket up after him. Use the rocket to smash through the blocks to the final chest and then just jump over dog blob as you leave. Continue on your rocket through the tunnel lined with hazardous blobs. You'll land by a sign. Crunch the blocks here using the cannon and run right when you land. Cannon the blocks above you and jack the switch, when the odd pair of blobs mince their way through the open door drop the switch to trap them nearby. Now jack the switch on the ceiling left of this. Jump left as the blobs skip to you. Now toss a red bean and have them drop onto the switch below them. Jack the middle high switch again to exit. Challenge Level 3-6 '''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: part 3/3 - sound test level . Zorb down the slope and get thrown three times. Then speed boost right multiple times to pass over all the platforms and end up on a ledge with falling platforms on your left. Zorb over these and carry on left ending up on a platform. Zorb right, squishing multiple blobs in your wake. Head up and drop through the thin platform on your right to the exit. I know, challenging huh? Level 3-7 ''''''''' Ladder up to the ledge above and jack the switch there. Push an avil off the far right of this platform and drop down after it. Move onwards and ladder up again, dropping down the other side. Run over the thermal and use the jack on the other side to squash the black blobs above. Glide up and over. Ladder upwards to the sign with the red jack on it. Rocket up to the block and push it off the edge, keep going left until you're on the red block. Leave it there and jack up the red rock on the left so the block behind you is raised. Push the block off the red rock, onto the crumbling blocks below. Go down and jack the huge blob from below. Ladder out of the pit and continue onward to a spike pit. Rocket over it and ladder up the other side. Make a running jump onto the falling platform and sink with it. By the rainbow water send a jack up to clear the two black blobs above. Ladder up there and jack the rock above you. Run through the tunnel this creates and drop the jack when you reach the rocket sign. Above you to the left is a little red patch of rock. Jack it up and run right, dropping down the crevasse that opened up and into the blue stars. Rocket your way around the course and jack up the stone that the blob couple walk on and let them walk into the spikes, climbing up a ladder to avoid them as they do so. Grab the first chest and exit. Rocket through the tunnel and pay close attention to the signs because they tell you which way to duck! After the down-up-down sequence make a sharp U-turn into the above alcove and into the blue stars. Jack the blobs and ladder up two levels. Set a jack here and max it out to reach the ceiling switch above. Drop down to the second chest. Exit. Rocket over the spikes and dismount before you hit the wall of floaters. Let blob walk through them and eat chest number three. Drop through the floor and rocket over the blob dog. Hold A to speed up and don't move the control stick and you'll shoot up past a small puzzle. Nice! Carry on to the exit. Challenge Level 3-7 '''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: none - part 1/3. Rocket to the platform in the middle and fall down with the platforms. Drop over the couple and rocket to the right. Break through a wall and navigate your way around the obstacles. Again there isn't much to say here except follow the guidance of the signs and tap C when you're above the exit, on some crumbling blocks. Level 3-8 ''''''''' A new enemy lies just ahead, the gobbing blob. Shoot yourself up onto the platform above and leave an anvil on the gate above gobbing blob. Head back down to the switch to smash gobbing blob and reveal chest one. Use an anvil to step up and cannon through the wall here. Run and drop down the gap, avoiding the gob balls being fired your way. Drop down the first falling platform to the blue stars below. You're surrounded by floating blobs. Cannon yourself upwards to the platform. Here plant another cannon and fire diagonally through the two blobs on the left, you'll rebound to chest number two. Exit though the stars. Jump over the three falling platforms and fall with the last one, Jump right, into the blue stars. Fire yourself diagonally again to bounce safely onto the level above. At the top fire yourself above the blob floating over the water. You'll land next to the final chest. Exit there. Jump back over the three falling platforms and push the block onto the switch. Head towards gobbing blob, jumping over his projectiles and over him. Blobachute from the edge here. Avoid the gob and floating blobs and make a landing towards the right. Carefully align a cannon path through the line of floating blobs to land beneath a gobbing blob. Aim towards the top left corner of the screen and fire through a gap in the gob. You will land beneath a hummingbird. Jump upwards, over the three falling platforms and run to the exit. Challenge Level 3-8 '''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: none - part 2/3. Drop down and use ball blob to squish the three bouncing blobs. Now slowly creep to the edge on the left and drop, swerving right as you do so. You'll land safely below. Feed ball blob to frog blob and blow him up. Jump underneath the vertically floating blob and spacehopper up out towards the water. Dismount just left of the bouncing blob and kick him with ball blob. Drop down with a hole and land near to the hummingbird. Head left a little, until it's safe to transform blob into ball blob and kick him through the tiny hole there. This will set of a chain reaction, blowing all the floating blobs underneath you. Toss a pink bean through the vines and let it sink into the water. Make blob eat it and the resultant spacehopper will drift rightwards. When it's underneath the hole, drop onto it. Float right and let the thermal take you up. Hop up to the level of the exit. Push the pink block right and bounce off this to the exit. Level 3-9 ''''''''' Run on foot to the blue stars. No trickery here, no beans, just good 'ol fashioned timing. Kick ball blob into the floaters to destroy them, releasing the marching monster above, head right and release the pig blob from above with a hole. Use a cannon to fire pig blob into the marching monster and then quickly fire yourself too to kill him and receive chest number one. Continue right and hop across the water to the closed door. Push anvil blob onto the switch at the bottom of the pool and exit via the blue stars. Kick ball blob to the left, he'll roll into frog blob, destroy him and call blob three times to open the chest that dropped down. That was alarmingly easy... Carry on right and push the button to release dog blob. Have him chase you down the drop and two slopes, destroying the walls there. After the final vertical wall destroy the horizontal one above you with a well placed cannon-boy or two. Eat up chest number three. Drop back down, head left and drop onto the falling platform. Jump over them and then cannon upwards and jump over two more to the left. Go through the blue stars and exit the level. Challenge Level 3-9 ''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: part 3/3 - story (!). Head left and jack the very end floater. This sets off a chain reaction destroying them and the crumbling platform you're standing on! Sprint right to safe ground and use a ladder to climb up. Drop down on the right and jump the gap. Jack the ceiling switch and run like crazy to the right again. When the dust has settled, head over to the exit. Level 3-10 '''''''''' Run right and cannon low through the two walls. In the heavily secured area rocket up and double back on yourself to the left to land on a ledge. Push an anvil from here and rocket back down again to the chest. Rocket back up and head right, trampolining up to the switch. Press it and pig blob will charge and destroy the monster at the end of the passageway. Go to where he stood and ladder upwards. Make a ladder to the platform right of where the redundant dog blob is, and repeat this to climb up and out of the area. Fall down with the falling platform and make a quick jump before the spikes to the blue stars. Use a rocket and take the lower route, bypass the two floaters and jump off at the chest. Rocket to the right and exit. Run left and use the cannon to break into the alcove containing the final chest. Go right and climb up the purple ladder. Boss - Bird Blob '''''''''''''''' This boss can't be touched until he's knocked onto the ground. He's a huge pain and will take you several attempts unless you're god like. But then, why are you reading my FAQ!? Drop a cannon and fire yourself horizontally to the right. Wait a second and bird blob will drop a projectile between you and the cannon. After this run left and jump over the mouth of the cannon, standing directly behind it. Bird blob will shoot at you again, this time the projectile lands in the mouth of the cannon and is shot back at him, knocking him to the floor. Now fire yourself to the upper level and push an anvil onto him. Quickly jump down and set up another cannon, this time far over to the right on the golden coloured floor. Run left, the trick here is to not stop moving. Run back right, under the bouncing blobs and stand behind the cannon again, one should pop in and knock him to the floor so throw another anvil on him. Once more, honestly! Set up your final cannon and avoid the bouncing blobs as best you can, their motion is predictable so run underneath them. Wait for the last one to pop into the cannon and push the final anvil on. Kaboom! This time there's no fancy rocket flight to the next world. You simply walk into the cold, metallic hideout you will call home. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- W O R L D F O U R ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- OK, things start to get quite tough here. The levels become larger, the checkpoint frequency is reduced and the puzzles become slightly more fiendish. Get ready. Level 4-1 ''''''''' No beans? Blob isn't following you? Something's wrong... Walk forward and watch in horror as you and your blob get separated. Head out of this corridor, we'll find him. Don't worry. Run along and jump the spike pit. Push the block onto the switch to be raised to the next level. Make a few running jumps to the left and push the next block down onto the step so we can jump to the next level. Head right and utilise the floating platform to get access to the highest level. Here push the block off the edge, then through the gap to its right, then through the gap to its left so it lands near the spike pit. Push it into the pit and drop down safely. Head right and jump down. Push the block to the right so that it is underneath the bouncing blob, this will raise him up a level. Now head up the slope and push the block onto the raising platform and off the left edge, push it under the bouncing blob to raise him up again, clearing the blobs from around the switch. Hit it to drop the first chest. Keep heading right, running under the rows of floaters and up into the thermal you find. Heading left, press the middle switch of the first three to drop a chest down below. Of the next three switches press the left most one to release the pig blob. Then the left most one of the next set again to have him drop down to your level. As he parades across the switches he activates the beams to your left allowing you to reach the blue stars. Ride the thermals over and under the spikes and then straight upwards to be in the line of fire of gobbing blob. Walk over to the switch and use it to drop a stone below you. Push this stone into the spike pit and make a running jump across. Run up the slope and over gobbing blob who'll spin around and fire at you again so jump his shots and over the monster below. Slide down the large slope and push the block off the switch, leftwards to provide a step up to the mini platforms. Head up there and push that block right, onto the switch. Drop back down and push the block there far right, raising two pipes as you do so. Use the pipes to jump over the gap. Pressing the switch you find here drops the third and final chest. Carry on down the slope and into the blue stars. Blob! Feed him a blue bean to have him float out of his cage and the three chests will drop next to you. Ace. Exit, hand in, erm, blob. Challenge Level 4-1 ''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: level design. Zorb your way through the two half pipes and boosting slightly along the corridor to avoid the falling stalactites. Minimise the bounce at the wall when you ramp off and you'll land into another half pipe. Head to the next, and out, down a large drop to a platform with two patrolling black blobs on it. Drop through two more half pipes and you'll arrive next to a lumbering monster. Have him throw you over the wall by running left at him. Repeat again in the next section. Boost rapidly through all the blobs here and ramp upwards over the gap. You'll land right next to the exit. Level 4-2 ''''''''' Whoo! New bean! Shield blob does just that, provide a shield capable of reflecting projectiles. Hold B to raise your shield and reflect the gob that's being fired at you from the start. Use the switch to squash gobbing blob, and drop down with the falling platform, jumping to your right as you go. Free the two caged blobs and trampoline to the walkway above them. Place a hole in the platform above and let the patrolling blobs fall through onto the switch. Trampoline through the newly opened gap and again, up to the first chest. Slide back down, ride the two falling platforms and exit on the left, at the bottom. Use a shield to destroy the floater here. Press the switch and shield the next floater. Jump over the platform and over the dog blob, exiting via the blue stars. Form a jack in the middle of the spike pit and jump onto him to cross. Chest number two lies just ahead. Ride the falling platform down and jack the ceiling switch. Run over the one on the floor and the three pronged door will open. Equip shield blob before jumping on the horizontally moving platform, use him to shield against the floater. Repeat this process on the two floaters in the next pit, at the third pit there are none. At the fourth pit there is no spiked bottom, just a great void. Shield against the three blobs and enter the blue stars. Equip a shield and ride the elevator up, alternating which sides you shield against. The timing here is random so sometimes you can ride the platform up without need to shield at all. The final chest awaits you at the top. Ride the platform back to the right, shielding the blobs. You'll find a switch on the bottom platform at the other end. Hit it to open the doors above you so use the platform to go up. Head right to find two pig blobs trapped above you. Release them both with holes and then jack the ceiling switch to open the three pronged door. Release the two blobs here and exit the level. Challenge Level 4-2 ''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: hideout concept art. Cannon up and through the wall of boxes. On the other side use pig blob as a cannon ball to demolish the other wall of boxes that is being guarded by some floaters. Head up there yourself and drop down the other side. Form a cannon right on the end of this platform and wait for the swinging floaters to just start heading left before firing up, bouncing off the ceiling and down the other side. Run off the platform to the area with the crumbling blocks. Aim low through these blocks. Form another cannon in the middle of the spike pit and the floaters will all be cleared when piggy is fired. Now make a cannon a little left of the pit, before the lip there and fire yourself over the pit, you'll rebound from an invisible wall and land in the exit stars. Level 4-3 ''''''''' Use the cannon to bounce off the ceiling onto the platform above. Ride the platform across and jump onto the walkway with the caged blobs. Free them both and place an anvil at the end here, on the switch. Now make your way to the lower level and cross the two falling platforms, press the switch here and exit through the door that consequently opens. Free the blob here and use a blobachute to descend past the spiked walkways. At the bottom is another blob to free. Form a cannon just beneath his cage and fire over the two floaters, breaking down the wall of boxes. Fire your way upwards and you'll land on a platform with a mirror blob. He is programmed to mirror your movement, try getting near to him, see what happens. Cannon your way through him and free the blob. Drop down to the platform in the middle of the spikes and cannon your way right. Look up to find some fireflies and chest number one. Cannon up to it, it's in an enclosure with a mirror blob. Use a hole to drop out and use a ladder to jump onto the platform that floats over the spikes. At the end of the ride jump up the two falling platforms to an area with a hummingbird. Collide him with the floater on the right and use a ladder to climb upwards and jack the ceiling switch up there. Free the caged blob and jump over the two platforms to hit the switch that opens the door. Shoot yourself upwards and jack the ceiling switch, run over to the closed door and call blob, this will trap mirror blob above you near to a switch we need him to step on. Plant an anvil on the switch next to the door and coordinate yourself with the mirror blob above so as you jump onto the switch so too does he. Head through the door that opens and drop the blob through a hole onto the spikes. Squish him with an anvil to find chest number two. Free the blob here and make a series of running jumps to the top of a slope where another caged blob can be freed. Keep heading up, jumping over dog blob and using a ladder to climb up to the caged blob. Free him. Drop and anvil onto the mirror blob to find the final chest. Beware there is a caged blob on the other side of the exit door! Challenge Level 4-3 ''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: 'blob character study guide'. Throw a light blue bean left, near to the large block on the other side of the gap. You and boy blob can now push this block onto the switch. Run right, making boy blob fall down, then have him step on the switch below when you are right next to the door that springs down, this will give you just enough time to run through as he steps off with you. Now you press the switch to let boy blob through and continue up the slope together. Dispose of boy blob and reform him on the platform above, jump him over the lip and make him push the rock off so you can step up. Now reform him again on the switch and run and jump off the platform that extends to the same walkway as the two jumping blobs. Use ball blob to deal with them and boy blob to destroy the floaters nearby. Reform him on the platform above and make him push the block onto the switch by yourself. Now both of you push the large block onto the two bouncing blobs and jump over the gap. Press the first switch to knock a stone down to you. Place this on the first switch and have blob boy stand on the second so you can rise on top of the door when you call him, jump through the door that opens. Kick ball blob through the narrow passage and dispose of frog blob. Now use boy blob to clear the floaters and then blobachute across to the exit. Level 4-4 ''''''''' After the initial sliding head left and slide some more. Use blob boy to push the large block to the switch on the left. Now you and blob boy stand on the other two switches to open the door. Head through and jump the spike pit. Have you and boy blob push the block against mirror blob. Use a cannon to fire upwards and to the left. Stand on both switches and fire upwards again, up the slope to the first chest. Slide back down the slope to land on the large block. Head through the opened door and over the spike pit. Jump over the gap and push the rock onto the switch on the right. Stand on the middle switch and make blob boy appear on the left one. Go through the opened door and drop down, cannoning over the spikes. It's best to form the cannon on the very edge, then shoot straight out; you will land on a small platform in the middle of the pit, drop a hole here and have boy blob stand on the switch to your right. Cross over the pipe to the second chest. Repeat the three switch problem and cannon over the spike pit again. Use boy blob to stand on the leftmost switch you find in this corridor and have him lead the way down the tunnel. He'll take all the stalactites for you, so let him. Follow the tunnel down to come to some water. Spacehopper your way over, entering the blue stars there. Make boy blob appear in the spikes and run right, all three will hit the switches at the same time opening the door. Head through and feed ball blob to frog blob. Destroy them all and jump over the gap, spacehoppering up to the block on the platform above. You and boy blob should push this off left and then down the gap on your right. Jump down after it and push it onto the switch there. Now hop over it and head to the end of the tunnel. Hit the switch there to make the chest fall down a level. Now hit the switch further right to have it drop down to your level. You and boy blob should push the large block off the switch and kick ball blob down the gap you just unblocked. Fall down the gap on spacehopper blob and head left to the base of the slope. Set up a cannon and fire yourself over the two floater, to the other side of the filthy water. Jump over the two cogs and onto the final platform with a mirror blob on it. Use a spacehopper to pass him to the exit. Challenge Level 4-4 ''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: palace concept art. Equip shield blob and jump down the three platforms, squashing the floaters as you go. Continue until you jump up onto a slightly raised platform, shield the floater here and set a ladder on the far left, to the level above with the dog blob. Use a shield to bounce him back the other way and set a ladder in the gap between the two platforms above. Climb up and jump right. Use another ladder to time your climb past the floater. Jump over the small gap up here and drop down the edge on the right. Use another ladder to climb up out of this tunnel and move right a little. Mirror blob comes out of nowhere, so set a ladder close to him and climb it to jump over him to the exit. Level 4-5 ''''''''' What a regal setting; impressive huh? Head right and toss boy blob onto the platform with dog blob who will charge at him, through the red brick and onto the switch below. Continue underneath this and have yourself and boy blob stand on the two switches here to open the three pronged door. Go through and form boy blob a few metres ahead. Have him run into the floaters so the red blocks by the dog blob above are destroyed. Free the caged blob here and use a ladder to climb up next to the dog blob. Jump to have him charge at you so quickly drop down and swerve left. He'll go on to break the red wall on the right, next to that caged blob we just freed. Keep heading right and the camera will pan downwards showing you the first chest and a nightmare of an obstacle course leading to it. Use spacehopper blob to cross the red water, jumping into the space above as the floater comes by. Repeat in the next chamber and free the caged blob before eating the chest. Exit the same way you came in and exit through the blue stars. Form boy blob and run him off the edge to clear a few static and moving floaters below. Blobachute down to the (now) clear ground. Do so again to reach the switch below but head left first, into the thermal. Ride the floating platform upwards and use boy blob to clear the floaters. Drop down, hugging the left wall to fall into an alcove containing the second chest. Use blob boy to clear the way again, and blobachute back down to the switch at the bottom. Stand on the door that will retract and throw a blue bean onto the switch to summon boy blob. You'll drop but will land safely on a precarious edge. Jump right to the blue stars. Summon boy blob some way in front and have him clear the stalactites. Drop dog blob into a chamber below and use ladders to get to the three caged blobs above and the exit stars. Kick ball blob left and sink a bean through the branches to form boy blob below. Have him push the block onto the switch and go through the door this opens. Repeat this process, having boy blob push stones onto switches on the lower level while you deal with those above. Eventually you'll open the door to the blue stars. Jump down the three falling platforms and use a ladder to climb up and jump to the platform above. Continue over the falling platforms and you will reach safety, below the third chest. Use spacehopper blob to bounce up the two falling platforms leading to it. While you're up there have boy blob run off the edge to clear the floaters and blobacute off there yourself to the platform on the right. Drop dog blob through a hole and jump over him. Climb up to the blue stars via a ladder. Blobachute off the edge, past the sign. Veer right onto a platform below a lumbering blob and a stone. Ladder up there and have boy blob push the stone off. Drop back down a level through a hole and have boy blob jump on the stone to destroy it. Now push an anvil onto the monsters head and surf it to the exit on the left. Drop down and head right, under the spike pit to the blue stars. You'll be transported to the level exit. Challenge Level 4-5 ''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: enemy design (is that a goomba I see?!). Drop a cannon just in front of the dark strip in the background. Aim at around 60 degrees to the horizontal and you'll narrowly shave the top most floaters and land on a platform on the right. Drop left onto the platform with the two horizontally moving floaters and make a running jump to the right. Cannon over the row of floaters and drop down the gap. A small chain of explosions will occur without your intervention. Fire yourself diagonally upwards, towards the region in the top right corner of the screen, aim low, you don't want to gain access to the highest level, instead you want to clip the dark rock there and bounce off this onto the platform below. Jump over the gap and make a cannon in the path of pig blob here, firing him through the wall. Now throw a bean under the stalactites to have blob run under there causing them to fall. Ride the falling platform down and form another cannon on the slope here. Aim for the alcove on the right when the path is clear. Repeat this process several times to get to the top of this passage and the exit. Level 4-6 ''''''''' Cannon over the spike pit and set up another cannon on the small slope on the other side. Shoot yourself up and to the right to find the first chest. Drop back down and enter the blue stars. Release the caged blob and have yourself and boy blob push the rock to the right so you can ladder up a level. Get boy blob to stand on the switch in the pit below to drop a rock onto the one above, so make sure you aren't standing there! Now cannon yourself through the red wall onto the switch. A rock will drop, destroying the floaters. Push this rock onto the switch and cannon yourself over to the right, into a thermal. Cannon yourself from the switch up a level and push the rock onto the switch. Take a running jump to the right and continue down the slope, laddering your way up a level through the thin platform. Free the two caged blobs here and ladder up to the enclosure with the block in it. Form a hole and push the block through, to the switch below. This will open a door in the spike pit on the ground level. Make a hole on the thin section of platform here and zorb your way over the spikes, pushing the blocks onto the switches as you come across them. Stand on the third switch to open the door above use a ladder through the branches to go through the door that just opened. Lure dog blob all the way left to clear the red blocks and floaters underneath chest number two. Cannon through the final red brick to drop it down. Head back down to ground level and run back left. Jump over the gap and cannon through the red wall, riding the thermal upwards. Use boy blob to destroy the floaters. Set up a ladder and climb up the narrow gap and head into the blue stars guarded by pig blob. You have to go through the next set of blue stars too, obviously. Now pack a chute by the sign and ride the falling platform down a little. When it's clear jump and glide right, over the pit. Now use and anvil to step up to the closed door and from here turn around and form an anvil on the switch at the far left. Head through the open door. Drop down and toss boy blob up to the level above, have him jump back down, colliding with the floaters as he does so. Now cannon up there and form an anvil on the switch below you. Call blob as you stand on the open door to rise with it as it closes. Jump right, across the gap to another caged blob. Free him and follow the snaking passage round to find another three. Cannon your way across the gap to the blue stars. Again, free the blob, it's possible to beat the hummingbird. Ride the platform over the spikes and free another blob. Ride the next platform across and jump the two falling platforms. Use a ladder to get dog blob to charge at you, into the spike pit. From his platform push an anvil down through the red block. Blobachute down this narrow gap and climb the three falling platforms to the tiny lip. Push an anvil off here and drop down, with pig blob. Use pig blob as a cannon ball to destroy the red wall down here and cannon up there yourself, freeing the caged blob as you go. Ride the platform across and throw a black bean upwards in the middle, to the level above. A ladder will extend downwards, allowing you to climb off the moving platform. Ladder upwards two more times to find dog blob hiding chest number three. Free the blob here and have dog charge into the pit you just climbed out of. Push an anvil on him to get the chest and exit through the blue stars. Toss an anvil in the far right corner and use it to step up to the closed door. From the anvil throw another bean onto the switch above to form an anvil there, letting you through the door. Cannon up and free the final blob before exiting. Challenge Level 4-6 ''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: none - part 1/?. Drop the dog blob through a hole and once more, into the row of floaters below you. Climb up and push the rock off the platform, drop it through a hole onto the switch below. Go through the door and toss a bean far in front of you to have blob make the stalactites fall. Do this on the other side of the small pit too. Head right to the edge of the spike pit. Ladder up twice to be on the left of the red wall that dog blob is bouncing off. Lure him then climb back down so he charges above you. Now lure him again and climb back up the same ladder. He'll now be in the spike pit, opening the door for you which is nice, so climb up to it. Run down the slope and climb up to the same level as mirror blob. Drop him down through a hole and trap him in the spike pit, on the switch. Do this as you are close to the left hand switch so you (and thus he also) won't jump as you move onto it. From here toss a bean onto the far right switch to make blob boy stand on the third, opening the door to the exit. Simply use a ladder and then a hole to pass over mirror blob. Level 4-7 ''''''''' Whoop, at last we have rocket blob back again. Are you as excited as I am? Anyway, free the caged blob and throw a trampoline down the gap to find the first chest. Heading right, that isn't a thermal, so don't try and ride it OK? Use a succession of trampolines and jumps to cross this pit, freeing the two blobs as you go. Slide down the slope and wait for dog blob to be right under you before you squeeze left of him, running into a thermal to escape. Repeat this process to dispose of the two dog blobs. Continue downwards and push the block left to force dog blob off the edge. Push the block onto his head and drop down into the space. Jump right, and use a static anvil to jump over dog blob here, falling down the ledge. Free the caged blob above you and continue right. At the end drop down and hook left, ignoring the lumbering blob here. Equip a shield and hit the switch, the floater will head right at you so raise your shield and brace yourself for the chain reaction. The lumbering blob will be dead now so rocket over that gap and dismount on the other side. Throw a jack just below the first lit window and jump to it, freeing the caged blob there. Jump back left and mount a rocket to cross the spike pit. You head up and double back on yourself. Land on the platform to free the caged blob and continue rocketing left and up. Throw a bean through the tiny gap in the platform you land on to free the enigmatically located caged blob. Ignore the moving platform, use a rocket instead to bypass this area. There is a caged blob in the middle and a safe platform directly beneath him. As you leave on the right, make a very sharp turn downwards through the gap to avoid the floater here. Ride a rocket up and hook left to find the second chest. Jack the three floaters above you and trampoline up there to free a blob. Continue right and use a rocket to cross the spike pit, underneath the floaters. Push an anvil off both platforms to clear both columns of red brick, allowing the lumbering blob to fall into the water below. Spacehopper over the water, rocket over the gap (and floater) and spacehopper over the next well of water. At the far end free the two blobs and form an anvil on the switch below. Run right, after the floater to see it destroy the red wall down there. Continue your ascent freeing the two blobs. Eventually you come to a switch and the third chest. The only way to get this chest is to time a run over the switch so it falls down only one level. Tricky, but the chest respawns if you mess up, so take as many attempts as you like. When you have it, run right to exit. Challenge Level 4-7 ''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: none - part 2/?. Run down the slope and trampoline to the upper level. Have mirror blob push the stone onto the left switch and then, trapping him in the stairway as necessary, force him onto the right one as you hit yours. Go through the opened door and make boy blob appear on the switch on the other side of the rock wall. Quickly run over and have both of you push the stone against mirror blob, make him fall off the edge. Make a series of running jumps and hit the switch down in the alcove to open a door above. Jump back up two of the platforms we just descended and ladder up to the level above. Climb up again and hit the switch there to open the first door. Head through it and trampoline up before you reach the closed door. Ladder up another level and tap the two switches up there. Drop down by the right hand switch, and again. Hit the switch there to open the door behind you. Head through it and drop down through a hole, doubling back on yourself. Hit the last switch down here, trampoline back up and make your way to the exit. Level 4-8 ''''''''' Zorb off the edge and into the half pipe. When travelling up the right limb, curve to the left to land on a platform above the floaters. Keep heading left and trampoline upwards to find the first chest. Head back right and drop into another half pipe. Exit on the right, through the blue stars. Head right and kick ball blob through the narrow gap into the water below. Turn around and drop a pink bean through the branches to form spacehopper blob below. Now step on the switch to the right to let him through and once again, further on the right. The floaters will explode. Call blob and repeat the process, jumping down onto him from by the hummingbird to reach the blue stars. Trampoline up two levels and run left to fall onto the second chest. Run far right to the two switches and set a trampoline at the foot of the slope here to bounce upwards two levels. Have yourself and boy blob push the block down the gap on the right, onto the switch. Run left and the two mirror blobs should be on the switches, opening the door. Zorb through them to squish them and reach the blue stars. Place a trampoline in the pit to the right and push the stone onto it. Repeat this to get the stone to the highest level and push it right, close to the gap near the dog blob. Have dog blob charge at you and push the rock onto his head to reveal the final chest. Head up the moving platform and kick ball blob down the narrow gap on the right. Jump left and run up the slope hitting the switch there. Jump over the three falling platforms and throw a boy blob bean far to the right, it will sink through some branches, coming to rest next to a stone and ball blob. Call blob to have him transform and push the stone onto the switch. Now make him jump right and hit the other switch. Head down to the lower ground level to do these tasks. You'll be free to go through the opened doors to the blue stars. Blobachute down through the maze of floaters, which looks something like this: **** ____ * * * * * * * * * * ***** * * * * * * * * * * **** * * * * * * * * *** *** <- Align yourself with the central background column *** *** and hold down to speed up until you reach the bottom. * * * * * | * * * * * |* *| * * * * <- Collision occurs here if you're too slow. * | * * * * * * * * * *** **** Continue through the passageway at the bottom and through the dark to face blob king. Boss - Blob King '''''''''''''''' Blob King will only attack you by showering blobs upon you. They cast a shadow on the ground though so avoiding them is easy. Just remember, you're in no hurry here. Go as steadily as you like. Just concentrate on avoiding his blob showers and the rest is simple. Right to start with, ladder up left of the block and push it to the right a little. Now jump over it and drop down. Jack it up to the top level. Ladder back up to where the block initially began and toss a boy blob bean upwards, to the left of the block. Now drop down to ground level and run towards the king, stopping before you touch him, repeat this running process several times to have boy blob push the stone onto a stone ledge above you. You know when you are done because boy blob will change back to blob. When this happens set up a jack in the middle of the ground level and wait for a pause in the blob showers before jacking the ceiling switch and quickly releasing it to knock the stone onto the kings head breaking his crown. Ride rocket blob off the balcony and into the night sky. You'll end up back in the tree house hideout ^_^ Blob seems to want you to climb up the ladder so indulge him to find, shock! A new challenge level! Challenge Level 1-10 '''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: Snake Boss concept art. Pack a chute and glide over the first two thermals and into the third one. Ride this one to the top and glide over the dual platforms here, stopping when your nose touches the wall on the right. Let yourself slowly glide down and when you're clear of the overhang of the wall, push right to pass over the floaters. Keep heading right and you'll land under the exit. Run left and pack a chute, jump into the thermal and ride it to the very top, hold right and bosh, you land next to the exit. Check the world map to find level 1-11 now open. Level 1-11 '''''''''' This level has some cunningly hidden chests and to make things worse, blob gets captured again! Run left and let the dog blobs charge before running past them. Simply, head left to the blue stars. Head right and prepare yourself... Mecha-blob is quite an awesome transformation. Hold A to hover and B to release a flurry of punches. Head right smashing everything in your way. Nothing can harm you. Go nuts. Drop down to the blue stars you find and use mecha-blob to traverse the gaps between platforms. Right before the blue exit stars, stand on the platform facing the jabba like blob. Now run left and drop down to the first chest. Exit through the blue stars. Continue right with mecha-blob and ladder up to the blue stars. Go right, smashing everything in your way, even the hummingbird. Hover to the blue stars there. Now, transform into mecha-blob and go right, stop before you walk onto the crumbling blocks. Here you want to drop down the first set, three or so deep and then quick transform back to plain old blob, before you continue smashing downwards. Do this correctly and you'll come to rest a little way below the level you were just on. Get into mecha-blob and hover left, to the platform above the spikes. Form mecha-blob on the spikes below you and let the frog blobs bounce into him, killing themselves. Make two running jumps to the left, you'll come to a gap that evidently can't be jumped. Form a ladder in the middle of the gap and use that as an intermediate platform. Exit through the blue stars here. Now just hover to the tiny column and hover up and right to find the second chest. If you overshoot it, ladder back up to the column and try again. Exit through the blue stars below. Smash through both layers of blocks this time to fall some way down. Smash the lumbering blob and his small minions and wait by the wall here. Hover above it and then tap C to transform back to boy, you'll land on top of the bricks. Use a ladder from here to gain access to the final chest. Drop back down and use mecha-blob to smash your way to the level exit. Challenge Level 1-11 '''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: Blob King concept art. Not so much a challenge as a walk in the park. Seriously, mecha up and walk right, that's all there is to it. Time a few jumps, smash a few blocks. Easy. Level 1-12 '''''''''' Use mecha-blob to punch/hover your way to a tunnel. Before you go through, drop down behind you to find the first chest. Trampoline your way out and go through the tunnel as boy and jump over the six falling platforms on the other side. Exit through the tree trunk. Smash through everything and you'll see yourself passing over a thin section of ground, before the two hummingbirds. Drop through a hole to find chest number two. Ladder back up and continue your rampage to the blue stars. Drop down through the blocks and kill frog blob here. Continue falling through the blocks. When you land on a platform with mirror blob on your left, head right, falling down there to find chest number three being guarded by a jabba blob. Fall down another level to find the exit. King Blob - The Return '''''''''''''''''''''' Form a mecha-blob next to the king, don't jump in it just yet. Stay as boy to avoid the shower and then jump into blob. Stand and hold B to punch repeatedly, you'll reflect an energy ball that the king fires straight back at him. When he's hit by this, move in and punch his face 11 times. Now back off and avoid two more rounds of showers. Hover onto the lower platform and up again onto the higher one. The water level will rise but you'll be safe. When it's all clear drop back down, face the king and punch again to reflect another energy ball, sometimes two arrive so beware. When he's down go in with the face punching again. Now he'll unleash three showers. You have to face these in mecha-blob form because there isn't enough time to jump to the platforms for safety otherwise. Stand in the middle of the ground, just underneath the highest platform and dodge left or right accordingly. Use hover to move to one side more quickly. After the third shower hover up to the highest level and wait for the water level to recede before dropping down, reflecting an energy ball and finishing him off. Walk to blob and look up at the moon... Challenge Level 1-12 '''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: 'Blob King - The Return' concept art. There are three separate exits, each labelled with a roman numeral. Path one. I > IV > exit. I: Drop down the slope and make a running jump over to the right. Make boy blob clear the platform with the switch and ladder up there, leaving an anvil on the switch. Have boy blob clear the horizontally moving floater and jump over the two stone platforms to the blue stars. IV: Ladder up to the right to attract the attention of dog blob. Let him charge down a step and then stand beneath him and jack him right up to the top level. Now run left and bounce your way up to him. Get him to charge at boy blob, making him break the blocks leading to the exit. In the next area toss a trampoline under the bouncing blob to have him clear the floaters, letting you exit the level. Path two. II > V > exit (so I heard you like dying?). II: Toss a trampoline right over the pit, by the wooden wall. Jump over gobbing blob and onto the trampoline to bounce over the wall. Drop down the other side and have you and boy blob push the stone block onto the spikes. Now push the smaller stone next to it to step up. Use a ladder to get to the walkway here and trampoline up to the exit. V: Drop down the three small platforms and again to the low level. Walk to the right to find a set of stone doors alternating going up and down. You're going to jump across them. Right. Now. Jump on the first one as it pops up. Say to yourself "one pink elephant" and jump right. If you did it OK you won't be dead. Now you can see the blob on the switch above you controlling the timing. When he moves right, wait until his eyes are in line with the small shrub growing there, then jump. As he moves left, wait until his body is almost centralised on the switch, then jump. Repeat the jumping to come to a horizontal staircase, above a floater. Jump on the first level and say, again, "one pink elephant" jump up and hold right. You should just jump as the level above slides out for you. Any minor time delay and you'll be pushed into the spike pit below. Repeat this to climb the slope. It is hard, but it isn't impossible. Jump the small gap and run up the slope to exit via the blue stars. In the next area toss a trampoline under the bouncing blob to have him clear the floaters, letting you exit the level. Path three. III > VI > exit. III: Jump across 12 falling platforms. You'll come to one with a wall of floaters blocking your path so ride this one down and jump right at the bottom, to solid ground. Ride the platform right and form a ladder in the middle of the sign, using this as a platform to progress further right. Repeat this again to jump up to the vertically moving platform. Ride this up to the blue stars. VI: Drop down into the ditch and use a trampoline to bounce up onto the small lip at the edge of the gap. Throw a bean straight upwards to form a trampoline here and bounce three times, on the third bounce hold right to sail over the gap. In the next area toss a trampoline under the bouncing blob to have him clear the floaters, letting you exit the level. Challenge Level 2-10 '''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: Lion Boss concept art. Jump over the floater and patrol blob and slide down the slope. Use spacehopper blob to bounce over the dog blob as he is at the left side of his routine. Now bounce up a level as the floater moves away from you, bounce over him as he sweeps back and bounce to the platform with the patroller on it. Take the high path, stay on the spacehopper to bounce over the floaters, hopping steadily under the stationary one you find. You'll reach a well of water that is mined. Jump over the first and creep in-between the second and third. Wait for the second to rise before bouncing out, it's a close call there. Ride the thermal up to exit. Challenge Level 3-10 '''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: Bird Boss concept art. I'll state this now. This will take several attempts. You have to rocket to the exit, and, of course, there are no checkpoints. Head right and down. Left and under three single floaters. Down and right, go under all three groups of floaters and at the end you'll pivot upwards, through a corridor of decreasing width. At the top hang right and midway here, amongst the floaters, pull upwards to skip a section of the course out. At the top of the climb take a steady diagonal up and right, boosting to avoid the stalactites. At the end of the stalactite corridor take a swift down turn to avoid the two floaters, then a left, down and right through clear passages. Head right under the floater, down and left under two more before pulling right, boost through the narrow stalactite corridor and over the dog blobs. When you get above a clear slope dismount and slide down to the exit. Challenge Level 4-8 ''''''''''''''''''' Unlockable content: Intro sequence sketches. Jump over the platforms and toss a boy blob up onto the spiked walkway, to the right of the stone. Have him push the stone left until it drops off. Push it onto a switch and have you and boy blob stand on the other two. The door will open. Go through and stand beneath the grey arm-like protrusion from the wall. Throw a red bean to form a hole above the switch and run left to make mirror blob fall onto it. Now drop the next mirror blob into the spike pit too. Form boy blob in the pit and dog blob will charge at him, break the red wall and land on the switch, walking on and off it as he pleases. Now wait by the rock door on the right and within a minute it will stay open long enough for you to walk through. Now use ladders to ascend to the top left platform. The jump here is impossible so throw a ladder over for it to extend downwards. Now run, jump and grab to climb up. Ladder up again and drop through a hole underneath the bouncing blobs. Run as far left into the wall as you can. Launch a blue bean to the second bouncing blob and form boy blob there. Now run right, careful to not let boy blob get stuck in any rut. You will synchronise onto the switches quite nicely. The door to the exit is now open. =============================================================================== 5.
