Need a Hint?

Postby NealCruco » Wed Feb 11, 2015 12:40 am

I do. I need help on beating 30, 31, and 33. Not getting any stars; just beating them. Specifically:

30: Exactly what should I do? The only things I've found are slingshotting myself into the lower right corner, clinging to the left side of the current, and getting killed. My guess is that I should somehow use the boxes to get into the red magnetic field, spinning me upward...but that's just speculation, and it certainly hasn't done me any good.
31: Okay, I can get out of my starting alcove (eventually), get two stars, hit the switch, and jump on top of the square-shaped wire. But how do I get over to the door? It's too far to jump, even with a running start, and I can't seem to make use of the magnetic field, though I'm pretty sure I should use it somehow. Also, I can't imagine how you're supposed to get out after getting star #3 (I had to restart), but that's not important right now. I just want to beat the level. And at this point in the game, two stars is pretty good for a first run. At least it is for me.
33: The homing cannons make it impossible for me to stop anywhere for a rest. What am I supposed to do?

Hello? Andy? I know you've been online at least twice since my last post. Are you too busy to type up a reply?
On the other hand, I'm happy to get help from anyone, as long as they know what they're talking about. I just need a hint.

Gonna sleep in a bit, but here:
General: Advanced wall jumping with currents works only if the current goes up. It's possible but harder with current going down.
30:
Spoiler: show
Try skipping the left star: The right current should get you over the spikes from a running jump, then dig up. (You've played Minecraft, right?)

31:
Spoiler: show
See general tip above; you'll need the up current. Make sure you're firmly attached before charging, then walljump.

33:
Spoiler: show
See 31. Do what the signs say. Firmly walljump up, holding Z, Left, Right; Release all but Right, then press-hold left. RUN AND JUMP
$1 = 100¢ = (10¢)^2 = ($0.10)^2 = $0.01 = 1¢ [1]
Always check your units or you will have no money!

Thanks, ARP! I'm trying out the hints right now. I'm happy to say that I just beat level 30, with all three stars! Trying 31 next.

Ah, I didn't see this thread until a moment ago -- glad you got some help. Also, fear not, I wasn't actively ignoring it -- I simply sometimes pop on quickly to check if there are any posts stuck in moderation (from first-time users), since I've had times where those are stuck in moderation for a while. And I'm doing some traveling at the moment, so I haven't had a chance to look much closer.

Thanks for starting a Hints thread - those are always so useful to a bunch of players.

A bit of help on 37 and 41, please?

On 37 and 41, eh? Easier shown than said, I always (never) say. I went ahead and made the walkthrough video for TES last night - and just posted it up on YouTube.

Or for a particularly fast version of the walkthrough, you can go here. You know, if you've got an important meeting starting in 3 minutes with the board of directors for your fortune 500 company about why quarterly earnings are down, and the only way you can save face is to show the investors how to beat level 41 of TES.
