Well, I completed everything except for the one with the moons that you can grab onto, but I can't seem to complete it. I think I'm supposed to

hover over each moon until it explodes or something, but I can't seem to stay there long enough for that to work.

I have no idea how to solve the puzzle on each of the planets? I talk to everyone and then what, do I have to find something? or do something? I don't understand the basics of how to solve the puzzle? Any help would be appreciated.

Wow. The first one I went to was the underground one, and I was tempted to just quit right there because

1) I didn't have the sound on

Everybody is so enthusiastic... Is is just me having this bug when scrolling suddenly stop? All the physics remain the same, but no matter where I go, I still see the same screen. Makes it somewhat difficult to leave a planet since I cannot see or even blindly aim towards the clouds.

Starting all from scratch for the 3rd time is not so appealing. If it's just me, I guess I'll try again from another computer...

Wow, that was an unexpected ending...

Okay, there are a lot of good hints here, and I'm going to go ahead and compile them into a walkthrough because it's about time I contributed more than just a sentence or two to the mix

Overall Gameplay Tips
-You can check the name of the planet you're on in the upper right hand corner when you first land on it.
-Some planets are a bit tricky to get back into space from (Gravida and Debasa in particular). Your best bet is to get a bit away from the surface and just swing until you're going in circles.
-Remember centripetal force: When you let go of a cloud or star, you fling off at a tangent to the circle you're making. So if you want to leave a planet, your best bet is NOT when you're on top of the cloud, but when you're next to it on the upswing.
-There are three ways to tell if you've solved a planet: The flash of light, the mood of the planet (not its inhabitants), and whether or not the planet's "butterfly" pointer appears when you're in space.

Blue-green Planet (Earth)

Remember how this all started with the boy wanting to explore?

Every time you solve another planet, Earth gets a little smaller.

Come back to Earth after you've solved all the other planets to see the ending.

Pink Planet (Gravida)

Hey, this planet looks... dead.

Check out the open mouth.

It must get boring all alone inside that shell.

What can pass the time?

Maybe some music?

Each of the crystals plays a note when you swing on it.

Swing on all of the crystals in turn.

And because at least one person had a problem doing so, to leave the core,

just swing up to the surface from the crystals - don't worry about lining up with the open mouth again.

Blue Planet (Malaisus)

Wow, that guy's a jerk. It has nothing to do with the puzzle, I just thought I'd mention it.

Although he does look like the creature you're riding. I wonder if this is where he comes from?

He must be hungry after taking you all over the galaxy.

Maybe he should eat?

What is there around for your creature to snack on?

Eat all the fish.

Yellow Planet (Biblion)
Before we get into the puzzle here...

This may be a bug, but I noticed there are two faces on this planet - one happy, one mad. So you may not be able to use the mood of the planet to determine whether you're done with it.

Hmmm... There's only one alien on the planet. Who's he talking about?

Mothers get upset when their kids run away.

The planet is upset... who are its kids?

Those moons sure are talkative.

How can you bring them home?

Stand on top of the wayward satellites.

Green Planet (Debasa)

Wow, what's with the atmosphere here? Kind of thick, isn't it?

I wonder where it's all coming from?

Check the upper atmosphere.

Maybe something should be done about those moons.

They don't seem to like it if you swing around on them too long.

Swing around on the moons until they explode

The key to quick movement is to use ASDW while you are swinging on your tongue. You add to your momentum. So if you want to go up from a planet, grab a cloud off to the side (say right) and above you, press the direction you are swinging (right) while you swing down. At the lowest part of your swing also press up (right and up together) to gain momentum. At the side point (farthest right) let go and you will be going quite a bit faster and up!

I found the hidden planet too, right after I finished the green one. I thought it was just a big star or something to pass over, then my little creature stopped when I hit it and landed. It was only in space, no atmosphere and I could walk around it like other planets, but was small and had little thingys, beans I guess, running around. The green planet was my last, so I went off to earth to see the ending, and didn't bother too much with the planet. Did I mention it was grey? And it was the only planet that talked. It said AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH! The little bean things just scurried along.

For anyone having trouble getting out of the cave on the red/pink planet, I really struggled with that, too. What I did is used the crystals to start going around in a circle. When you get going fast enough, you'll be slung out of the cave.

Music is relaxing, true, but I find the mechanics quite difficult to get the hang of. For instance, I swing off a cloud, then my (laggy) computer will (momentarily) freeze, and the next thing I know, I'm plummeting back to Earth.
Then, when I can get a bit further up, I land on a moonish-looking planet thing, and then, I am forced to re-load, because, despite my futile attempts, I can't get of the moon-thing!
Really, I'd like to love this game, but I can't.

Here is a walkthrough (my 1st) for people who are dozing off in space not knowing what to do.

Tips first

Bibulon

There are many moons but you can do something about them, like maybe crashing them into the planet? Wild guess. Or is it?

Debasa

Careful! It's moons are giving it pressure! Destroy them! But its easier this time because you can stick on them but unlike the other planet, you do something else......

Gravida

Try going underground...... Crystals and music!

Malaisus

Wow! Water! Lets eat seafood!

And finally back to Earth

You don't need a tip for this. Come back when you have done everything else.

And the answers! (for the lazy people)

Bibulon

You STAND on the moons and, yes, you crash them into the planet.

Debasa

You SWING around the moons with the rays until they explode!

Gravida

Swing from tree to tree... I mean SWING from crystal to crystal and don't land until the planet changes colour!

Malaisus

Go underwater and EAT the small fishesuntil there nare none left.

And Earth

Wait...... You do NOTHING!

I hope this helps!

Ding, moon #2 is found!

On planet Earth (the one you start on), just go in the direction above the face ( (: -->) There is nothing on it, but its interesting to see it before the ending.

Ding Gravida's err, dead moon, has been found!

To start, go to the open mouth. Now go left to what may seem like the left side. (You can go inside to help.) Now, stop when you see two cactus right next to each other and go right up. You should see the moon along with a bean bag looking fellow. And guess what! The moon is dead too!! Basically this is what your doing. (

Sorry again. Just here to say another random encounter.

It looks like the little bugs from Gravira (the pink dead planet). It apparently got stuck in space, and it says "Am I going to die?"? I saw it when I was (supposedly) heading to Gravira. (Because that planets pointer is no longer there after I solved the puzzle.)

Hmm...as i was swinging through space i found a little sad-looking, eyeless planet. I couldnt land on it, and it was uninhabited, but when i got close it said "im outta here" Weird. Greant game, though. :)

well if this is about the childhood memories and experiences of the person who made this, then they did not have a very happy time.

People talking about 'hidden planets', they're not planets, they're moons.

I wonder when the sequel will come out. It was a fun game, funny in appearance, but with such a deep meaning underneath. >_>;

Cool game. :] It was a bit hard to figure out what to do on a few levels... but I got the hang of it. :) (Also, hints are always very helpful! :D)

There are a few ways to tell whether you've solved a planet. Either

The planet will get some color

or

The face on the planet (ex: The face on the core at Gravadia)will change moods.

Once at the green planet, how the heck are you supposed to get above the atmosphere? I fell through and I paused it for a moment, and now I can barely move, let alone build up enough momentum to swing. Heck, I can't even jump. What do I do?

Keep trying, it takes awhile to get momentum. Once you get through the lower atmosphere it becomes easier.

You know... after stopping by to check out this game again... I begin to realize that this is a rather emotional game. It saddens me to have seen that more people were focused more on the puzzles, then the actual issues that were going on with each and individual planet...

If you play the game believing that this game might be about the life of Edmund McMillen (the creator)... you start to realize that the ending is happier then some might believe, while the issues portrayed on the planets are... tragic...

Basically, issues like desire for suicide or perhaps fear of his own life (resolved by a love and desire for music), dysfunctional families (parents who don't seem to want him there, and a family pushed apart by it), drug abuse or perhaps medication (remember the guy who says "I'm here because I'm bad"? This applies here); a conflict on whether or not to follow his dreams and the hesitation that results from it; multiple failed attempts to achieve a certain goal which might either be his goal, companionship, or both (there are plenty of fish in the sea...), and a realization that he can only set his own destiny, and that the life that he had and desired, is perhaps all but unobtainable...

It's very sad.

Play the game again, but pay attention to the characters, both on the planets, and their adjacent moons...
