Robot Wants JIG Walkthrough

This walkthrough will explain how to get all the letters of "CASUAL GAMEPLAY" in the order that they are acquired. The numbers beside the letters indicate where they are located on this map.

CASUAL GAMEPLAY

The L in casual (1)

Simply move up and to the left of your starting position, jump across the small spike pit, and walk under the crusher. The L gives you a cannon you can use by holding [X] and aiming with [UP] and [DOWN]

The first A in casual (2)

Use the cannon to shoot the orange switch, and continue moving up and to the left. Shoot the next switch and jump over to the oil. Jump across the spike pit using the metal platform. Shoot up and to the right to hit the switch (jump if you can't see it), and jump up using the newly created platforms. The A gives you air jump.

The E in gameplay (3)

Jump across the pit to your right, and shoot the switch to open a new path heading right. Take note of the Jigman, We will refer to him later as Jigman 1. Head right past the crusher, and go up and to the right. once you hit the gunner start going left again. Shoot the switch and jump across the platform. to get across simply walk off the wooden platform and jump before you hit the spikes. The E will give you an EMP bomb you an use by hitting [X] while holding [DOWN].

The second A in gameplay (4)

Go back to the gunner you just had to turn away from and use an EMP on it. Follow the path until you get to the next letter, there is only one way you can go. You can shoot the switch you need to hit by aiming through the grate. Jump up and grab the A, this gibes you the ability to swim. Also note Jigman 2, which you can't access yet, try as you might.

The G in gameplay (5)

Head back down to where you got air jump, and jump into the oil. Follow the path down passed the checkpoint. Walk passed the three crushers, and swim up to the little air hole and shoot the switch to open up the way to the G.

The P in gameplay (6)

Swim back up and to the right of the checkpoint, and use double jump and glide to make it across the pit. Back where we started \o/!. Go down and to the right across the spike pit. Get passed the crusher and the spikes and make your way over to the P. You will need to shoot through the grate to hit the switch. Now you can detonate red blocks with your EMP bombs.

The first A in gameplay (7)

Head back towards point 7 on the map, by going by point 2 where you got the air jump. Use your strong bomb to blow up the red block and get access to the new area. First turn off both switches you can see. Once both switches are off, turn on the left switch from inside the wall it creates. Jump over the spikes and turn on the second switch. Be sure to jump so the blocks don't crush you. There is a third switch you can now access by shooting into the grate. Once you get the shot through the tunnel simply turn off the fourth switch, and jump to the A. Now you can drop bomb by tapping X in the air.

The L in gameplay (8)

To get this letter just head back towards the start and enter the same tunnel you did for the letter P, instead this time go to the right and glide down the pit of spikes. When you land you will be right beside the L. You can now hang on to metal walls.

The S in casual (9)

use the lateral magnets to jump up the wall to the right. Then head left and jump up the tunnel lined with metal walls and spikes. The S is in the room at the top. You now have the Shield.

The C in casual. (10)

Go back down the tunnel you came up to get to the S, only go into the room blocked off by spikes on the right side. You can get in now that you have a shield. Glide over the three holes in the spikes and drop bombs in them. Once you have dropped a bomb in each hole you need a drop a fourth bomb in the middle. Head back down the tunnel, and to the right. Go up passed the three crusher. Use a bomb to stop them (You can walk through frozen crushers). Glide over and get the C. Your bomb will now crawl when you place them. If you didn't lose your shield gliding over, jump to the right and go down the tunnel to get JIGman3

The M in gameplay (11)

Reka's Note: before you even attempt to acquire the M, make sure you have enough time to also acquire the U and then JIGman bit #4 in the same session.

Go back down to the little area before the three crushers you just had to get passed. Use a crawly bomb to blow up the red block behind the teleporter. Jump down the tunnel to the right and swim through the spike field. Jump across to the left after you get out of the oil, and climb the wall. Shoot a laser through the grate in the upper left. Then drop a bomb on the red block in the middle of the teleporters and glide across. Jump up the metal wall and blow up the red block on the platform above you to grab the M.

The U in casual (12)

Head back over to the oil on the far left of the map. Go to where you needed to shoot the switch to get the G, and let a crawly bomb go heading right. It will blow up the red block and you can access a new area. Just follow the path to get to the U. There is only one tricky jump you need to make. Also note that you can shoot lasers while upside down.

The A in casual (13)

So close yet so far! Head back to where you got the L in casual (8 on the map), and dig through the ground and follow the path to the left to get to the A. You will need to be careful when using bomb to stop the crushers and make sure you don't blow yourself up in the process. Drop a bomb into the spike so it will blow up the gunner. Then glide over the teleporter and drop another bomb in to blow up the red block and disable the gunner. You can now glide across and climb up the metal wall on the left. One more to go!

The Y in gameplay (14)

You can pretty much see this one from where you started. Simply head to he starting area and climb up the metal wall in the middle. Stand on the cieling and shoot a laser into the grate. Hop back down the right, and go into the area you opened up. Let a crawly bomb loose to the red block, jump down and make the computer happy! Dig to the Y, and you win :D!

JiGman bits
JiGman bits are marked on this map in yellow! Once you have all the powers it's just a matter of getting to each one.

1

All you need to do for this one is double jump and use the magnet jump super easy.

2

For this one you will need to get to the top of the map and make sure you still have a shield when you get to the spike pit.

3

You need to use the upside down magnets to walk across the spike pit beside where you got the C, or you can just use a shield.

4

You need the Digging ability to get this one, just head the same way you did to get the M and dig down instead of jumping up the metal wall on the left.

5

This one you just need crawly bombs and the dig ability, no tricks here.

6

Just need to be able to make the computer happy, no tricks here either

7

This one is the tricky one. You need to glide down the pit like you did to get the L, but stop half way. Take a hit from you shield so you can jump up into the little ledge and shoot the switch. Blow yourself up and then jump back down with a shield and land in the new area. Drop a crawly bomb to disable the Gunner, take a hit on your shield from walkthrough through the spikes, and cling to the ceiling. Drop down above the JiGman

And here's a complete, full-sized map (Thanks, Raz!)

A BIT too small for me, but I still enjoy it, and the new ideas in the game are great!

Haven't seen anything really worth criticizing at the moment, and I wish my opinion will stay this way :)

Finished. Played very similar to the other Robot wants games, but that's very much a compliment. Lacked the map though its small enough that you don't really need it, and I first thought that just filling out the JIGman was enough (there's 1 more). Too bad there's no silly ending, though considering the typical endings that may be a good thing (for the robot at least).

Note you can hover your mouse over the letters/JIGman to see what they are/how many you need. EMP bombs can also disable the crushers. Also you can't fire in the air or attached to a wall though you can when you're hanging upside down.

Grrr... stuck.

Can't use bombs underwater, and can't work out how to disable the green laser/teleporter things...

FYI, I have

The A, S, and L from CASUAL, the G, E, P, L, A (second) from GAMEPLAY, and I think two JIG bits.

Hmmm...

I think I've found a bug with the last JIGman.

I collected all of the JIGman's body parts, then got the Y. CASUAL 'GAMEPLAY' went gold, but JIGman was still bronze. Moused over it: it said on more JIGman to find.

So I'm looking around on the right, and I see these magic bronze sparkles. I follow them into the water, and they guide me into the bottom right section.

Now I've already got the JIGman down there, but I figure I must have missed something, or something new must be there.

But there isn't. I do everything: reactivate the computer (I refreshed the page), hit the switches, everything.

Whenever I leave that area, the sparkles guide me back. Are they a hoax, or what?

Oops, meant bottom left.

I now know where the gold JIGman is (haven't got it yet), but the bronze sparkles still shouldn't be there.

For anyone stuck on the gold JIGman:

Go to the bottom right section. Yup, that pain-in-the-butt bit. And as you've probably refreshed the page, you'll have to negotiate the spiky waters again.

The gold dude should be pretty obvious after that :D

Yay! I'm in the top 5 :D! Nice game you got there Jay! I love all the banner games! Keep them coming.

And for some criticism... I really don't have any, maybe one thing. You can get a bit lost, because it's actually quite big. But well, you need to do some exploration to find everything, right?

Excellent game! (Unsurprisingly.) I fear, though, that I didn't get to the hall of fame, because I wasn't expecting it to require a pop-up; I can't be the only person who has them blocked, can I? But having allowed them, I'm not sure how to re-trigger the pop-up, or how to get to the hall of fame directly.

I am afraid there will be no Number One spots for me. Not until we open a Hall of Lame anyway. (It's okay, they give us apple juice and oatmeal raisin cookies.)

Still, way awesome game. I remember when I first started visiting JiG many moons ago I was absolutely amazed when I realised the banner was playable. :) Just one of those little touches that mean so much... es.

I have 2 problems.

1> Is there a 'restart from beginning' button.
2> I started the game. Got the laser cannon. Got back OVER the spikes, back to where you start... and I'm STUCK. I can't go right, because I can't jump high enough to get on the pipe, or over the spikes. I can't go left... because its a dead end, and spikes again... so I dont know where to go.

@Ashiel: You can restart your progress by tapping A while holding B. But you shouldn't need to do that! Have you tried

Shooting the red switches?

Also, for anyone stuck with "ASL GEPLA"

The wall (made of switchable blocks) that is seemingly "too high" to jump up on can be passed, you just have to know what to do. ;)

Can't play, help! On linux, firefox; When I click the top banner, nothing happens. If I press up/down, the page scrolls. If I right-click, I don't get the flash menu, just the standard HTML menu.

[It sounds like the game isn't getting embedded onto the page (there's a static image of the banner game there initially in case that happens). Make sure you have the latest Flash Player installed. The script that embeds the game wants to see at least 10.1 before it will proceed. -Jay]

I am completely stuck. I have the ASL of "Casual" and "GAEPLA" of Gameplay and 2 parts of the JIG guy. I am at a complete loss at what to do next.

I blew up the boxes and got into the little room with the computer terminal but it doesn't look like I can do anything with that yet. I cannot figure out how to gain access to the areas on the other side of the transporter. Everything appears to be a dead end to me. Also,I cannot drop bombs underwater, which I assume is an ability you gain later, to get access to that area.

Any help would be appreciated!

Having never played the Robot Wants series (I know, I know, I hear it's awesome but I'm not usually a platformer), I am not sure if I am just missing something. I'm stuck REALLY early on. (AL only)

I can only get the air cannon and double jump. Then I can't figure out anywhere else I can go on the left side of the map, can jump across to the right side but can't get through the up and down squishers - seems like my jump will always take me into the 2nd one no matter how I time it/run when starting the jump. What do you do after AL?

You need your shield, but you can pass through those and up into the upper right corner that tchakkazulu is talking about it. Can't believe I missed that!

Robot Wants JIG Walkthrough

This walkthrough will explain how to get all the letters of "CASUAL GAMEPLAY" in the order that they are acquired. The numbers beside the letters indicate where they are located on this map.

CASUAL GAMEPLAY

The L in casual (1)

Simply move up and to the left of your starting position, jump across the small spike pit, and walk under the crusher. The L gives you a cannon you can use by holding [X] and aiming with [UP] and [DOWN]

The first A in casual (2)

Use the cannon to shoot the orange switch, and continue moving up and to the left. Shoot the next switch and jump over to the oil. Jump across the spike pit using the metal platform. Shoot up and to the right to hit the switch (jump if you can't see it), and jump up using the newly created platforms. The A gives you air jump.

The E in gameplay (3)

Jump across the pit to your right, and shoot the switch to open a new path heading right. Take note of the Jigman, We will refer to him later as Jigman 1. Head right past the crusher, and go up and to the right. once you hit the gunner start going left again. Shoot the switch and jump across the platform. to get across simply walk off the wooden platform and jump before you hit the spikes. The E will give you an EMP bomb you an use by hitting [X] while holding [DOWN].

The second A in gameplay (4)

Go back to the gunner you just had to turn away from and use an EMP on it. Follow the path until you get to the next letter, there is only one way you can go. You can shoot the switch you need to hit by aiming through the grate. Jump up and grab the A, this gibes you the ability to swim. Also note Jigman 2, which you can't access yet, try as you might.

The G in gameplay (5)

Head back down to where you got air jump, and jump into the oil. Follow the path down passed the checkpoint. Walk passed the three crushers, and swim up to the little air hole and shoot the switch to open up the way to the G.

The P in gameplay (6)

Swim back up and to the right of the checkpoint, and use double jump and glide to make it across the pit. Back where we started \o/!. Go down and to the right across the spike pit. Get passed the crusher and the spikes and make your way over to the P. You will need to shoot through the grate to hit the switch. Now you can detonate red blocks with your EMP bombs.

The first A in gameplay (7)

Head back towards point 7 on the map, by going by point 2 where you got the air jump. Use your strong bomb to blow up the red block and get access to the new area. First turn off both switches you can see. Once both switches are off, turn on the left switch from inside the wall it creates. Jump over the spikes and turn on the second switch. Be sure to jump so the blocks don't crush you. There is a third switch you can now access by shooting into the grate. Once you get the shot through the tunnel simply turn off the fourth switch, and jump to the A. Now you can drop bomb by tapping X in the air.

The L in gameplay (8)

To get this letter just head back towards the start and enter the same tunnel you did for the letter P, instead this time go to the right and glide down the pit of spikes. When you land you will be right beside the L. You can now hang on to metal walls.

The S in casual (9)

use the lateral magnets to jump up the wall to the right. Then head left and jump up the tunnel lined with metal walls and spikes. The S is in the room at the top. You now have the Shield.

The C in casual. (10)

Go back down the tunnel you came up to get to the S, only go into the room blocked off by spikes on the right side. You can get in now that you have a shield. Glide over the three holes in the spikes and drop bombs in them. Once you have dropped a bomb in each hole you need a drop a fourth bomb in the middle. Head back down the tunnel, and to the right. Go up passed the three crusher. Use a bomb to stop them (You can walk through frozen crushers). Glide over and get the C. Your bomb will now crawl when you place them. If you didn't lose your shield gliding over, jump to the right and go down the tunnel to get JIGman3

The M in gameplay (11)

Reka's Note: before you even attempt to acquire the M, make sure you have enough time to also acquire the U and then JIGman bit #4 in the same session.

Go back down to the little area before the three crushers you just had to get passed. Use a crawly bomb to blow up the red block behind the teleporter. Jump down the tunnel to the right and swim through the spike field. Jump across to the left after you get out of the oil, and climb the wall. Shoot a laser through the grate in the upper left. Then drop a bomb on the red block in the middle of the teleporters and glide across. Jump up the metal wall and blow up the red block on the platform above you to grab the M.

The U in casual (12)

Head back over to the oil on the far left of the map. Go to where you needed to shoot the switch to get the G, and let a crawly bomb go heading right. It will blow up the red block and you can access a new area. Just follow the path to get to the U. There is only one tricky jump you need to make. Also note that you can shoot lasers while upside down.

The A in casual (13)

So close yet so far! Head back to where you got the L in casual (8 on the map), and dig through the ground and follow the path to the left to get to the A. You will need to be careful when using bomb to stop the crushers and make sure you don't blow yourself up in the process. Drop a bomb into the spike so it will blow up the gunner. Then glide over the teleporter and drop another bomb in to blow up the red block and disable the gunner. You can now glide across and climb up the metal wall on the left. One more to go!

The Y in gameplay (14)

You can pretty much see this one from where you started. Simply head to he starting area and climb up the metal wall in the middle. Stand on the cieling and shoot a laser into the grate. Hop back down the right, and go into the area you opened up. Let a crawly bomb loose to the red block, jump down and make the computer happy! Dig to the Y, and you win :D!

JiGman bits
JiGman bits are marked on this map in yellow! Once you have all the powers it's just a matter of getting to each one.

1

All you need to do for this one is double jump and use the magnet jump super easy.

2

For this one you will need to get to the top of the map and make sure you still have a shield when you get to the spike pit.

3

You need to use the upside down magnets to walk across the spike pit beside where you got the C, or you can just use a shield.

4

You need the Digging ability to get this one, just head the same way you did to get the M and dig down instead of jumping up the metal wall on the left.

5

This one you just need crawly bombs and the dig ability, no tricks here.

6

Just need to be able to make the computer happy, no tricks here either

7

This one is the tricky one. You need to glide down the pit like you did to get the L, but stop half way. Take a hit from you shield so you can jump up into the little ledge and shoot the switch. Blow yourself up and then jump back down with a shield and land in the new area. Drop a crawly bomb to disable the Gunner, take a hit on your shield from walkthrough through the spikes, and cling to the ceiling. Drop down above the JiGman

And here's a complete, full-sized map (Thanks, Raz!)

Hi Jay!

Yes, I was redirected to the Hall of Fame once I completed the game.
I think there is a lot of confusion about the last JIGman bit. Alot of people should notice that you must hover over the JIGman to see if you got all the pieces.
And true, the last one is kind of hard to find, but it's got all the right difficulty with it to earn yourself a spot in the Hall of Fame!

I never did quite get through the first JIG banner game, so it was nice to "win" this one. The only other Hall of Fame page I ever made was for D.R.O.D. -- now there was a tough game.

This was an action game that a puzzle freak could love. Also reminds me of an old Mac-only platform game called Ferazel's Wand.

Only complaint -- whenever I reloaded the page all those barriers I'd sweated to get open were closed again!

I can see all the way to the left (if you refer to the map) but most of those spikes on the bottom right don't appear, just the ones hugging the left of the wall. No wonder I kept dying.

This makes no sense, I was just getting into the game. Please respond asayc.

the spike field should try double tapping keys for movement, especially up for stabilization. You'll move slow but you'll get where you need with your shield.

@DreadPirate

You need to close the first switch behind you and stand in the gap between them, ricochet your shot off the sides and it'll trigger the second switch. Leap over to the platform and shoot the second switch again so you have some ground to walk on. Then stand below and shoot through the grate to trigger the third switch. I found that shot through the grate exceptionally difficult. It took me over 10 minutes of trying, shifting positions and angles before I got it and a whole lot of perseverance and frustration.

I am no good at platform games. I'm stuck on this:

After getting air jump, I double jumped past a field of pink spikes, then up to an area where 3 pistons smash down on you.

When I try to jump up the curb, past the second piston, I jump too high. How can I make just a tiny jump up that edge instead of flying up into the piston to be smashed?

Any pointers?

@Topi The Walkthrough for what you do after getting the double jump is right. The three smashers is for a lot later. I know I went off to do them as well and spent ages trying to get by them. I just kept wanting to get by them. I think after every power up I got I went by to see if I could do it.

After you get the ability to double jump the next step is to get the E. (Have a look at the map if you're not sure you're going the right way). There's a switch just to the right of the A you picked up. Head over and stand on the little platform underneath and shoot upwards so you hit the switch. Then head through the little tunnel (there's a jig piece underneath). From there you work your way up and to the left. There's a shot you have to bounce against a wall and over some pink spikes to hit a switch just before the E (which you'll see on my map). The jump is tough, since there's spikes both above and below. You step off the platform and then leap before you hit the bottom spikes and if you time it right you'll miss the top ones. Then you pick up the E.

I am also struggling with the "game is running in another window" error. I only have one window open. Not sure how to fix it and I REALLY want to play this game.

[The game can be open in one browser window only. It'll even communicate across browsers, so you can't have it open in, say, Firefox and try to play it in Safari as well. If you don't have another browser open then I'm not really sure how that is even possible. It must be an old Flash thread still running on your computer that's communicating with the game as if it's open in a browser window. Here's what I would suggest in order of severity: 1) Try closing down all your browsers and wait one minute, then try again. 2) As a last resort you'll have to restart your computer.

These are great games, I really enjoy the concept. Although I'd love to see more, I'd like them to keep innovating.

I really liked this one specifically, for a number of reasons. I really enjoyed the relatively simple leveling of abilities. In some of the others I felt unsure as to how much I had left to go for certain attributes. Plus, this one had some great abilities.

I wonder what our next banner game will be.

Maybe we could commission Neutral or 58 Works or someone to design a JIG banner escape game. I've already figured most of it out in my head: the right half of the banner would display the room proper, while the left half would be devoted to the HUD (inventory and so forth). The Casual Gameplay logo itself would be the inventory; items picked up would be stored in specific letters, and maybe the JIGman would hold a really important item like the final key. Once an item had served its purpose and disappeared from the inventory, that letter would light up.

I'd draw up a concept sketch, but I don't know how I'd share it since the comments don't allow link dropping.

I love, love, loved this game. Just fantastic. My only complaints were tiny things...probably the biggest being that sometimes my little guy would bounce off the metal ceiling instead of sticking to it. Lost my shield to this about a thousand times getting power-up 13. Eventually I figured out the timing to keep it from happening, but I shouldn't have had to--it's really frustrating watching your little guy clearly hit the metal plate and then just bounce off of it into the spikes.

Man, though, what a great game. Heck, the fact that I put up with that over and over again is proof of how much I loved it.

I WAS a little disappointed at the lack of an ending after collecting all the JIG pieces. Would have loved some kind of closure beyond the hall of fame.

Just a thought for the Hall of Fame if you do a game like this in the future--it's kind of lame that your rank doesn't really pertain at all to how well you did in the game just when you happened to play it. For this game I think I would have ranked it based on speed of completion.

Good game. Don't like the tiny banner format though. Too hard to see where I'm going.

Took about 30 minutes. No walkthrough, I didn't know one existed until I looked here afterwards.

actually blalien, i was the first post release, if you had hovered over the home button and checked themes you could have played it as well

i don't know why, but it seems that the only one to find it during the soft launch was me(then again, i was tipped off by jay that a new banner game would be up(hurray for JIG chat!))

What a great game! Though there were a few tricky parts and times where I felt there was no where else to go, I never was so discouraged as to give up all together. That said, it took me a little long to be considered 'casual' gameplay. I am a big fan of puzzle-platformers and it's games like this that keep me coming back to JiG.

Joe Gona, I think the sparkles are just part of having completed Casual Gameplay and your last piece happened to be in that direction. But it helped me find that last one too, so thanks.

Just finished! Yay for sparkles. Great little (literally) game, with a great diversity of skills and tasks.

My minor quibble is that while the game saves your progress in collecting letters and bits, it does not leave open the paths you clear. Often this is no big deal, but when you have struggled through the frustrating areas and then cleared a path, it would be nice not to have to do it again. (Such as the direct path to the

L area, or when working on the right bottom corner.)

This is one of the best "Robot Wants" games ever! One thing that might make this game even better is if you could press "F" on your keyboard, or the banner to nake it fullscreen. I still thought of it bigger (because of the GREAT gameplay), and I like the Hall of Fame. (373, yay!) If they made one even better, in a big screen, and, as always, achievements, that would be just the GREATEST! (And maybe some game modifiers :) It would be the greatest game I would ever plaY!) Keep uo the FANTASTIC (sorry for yelling) work!

The last A is a pain, i tried it a hundred times, i want to stop but if i stop i played this for nothing :( (i don't like to play without seeing the end!!)

Sometime the game freeze and keep playing the last key i pressed and auto-jump, which is really awful. But nice game overall.

I would never have guessed it could be played.

I got all the parts but a "hall of fame" hasn't appeared. What's going on? Do I have to restart? Great game by the way. I think the creator should make this game full size. It would make it so much easier.

[But we don't want it easy. :p Anyways, there is most likely one more part you have to find. There's 7 total, one more than what fills up the JIGman. Hover your mouse over the JIGman and it will tell you how many you have left to get. -Jay]

Absolutely LOVED this game. One of the best puzzle platformers I've played.

I spent a very long time staring at the banner, assuming it was just a clever image, thinking "that looks like a game I'd like to play!"

Then one day I clicked it, on a whim. The rest is history.

I have: CASU L / GAMEPLA and two JIGman bits.

I cannot for the life of me get the final A.

As for the Y, it's no problem getting up there, but how the ?!?! do I "make the computer happy"?

FRUSTRATED.

STILL FRUSTRATED.

I actually now have 6 of the JIGman bits (only need the one down by the U - but can't make the computer happy).

I still have CASU_L and GAMEPLA_. I can reach the Y easily enough (but can't make the computer happy).

BUT I CANNOT FOR THE LIFE OF ME FIGURE OUT HOW THE @#$% TO GET TO THE #$% @#$% @#$%@#$ LETTER A!!!!!

We do the dance of joy! di-didi-di-di, di-didi-di-di, di-didi-di-di, hey-hey-HEY-hey-HEY!

Beat this game not once but TWICE.

Getting the final A:

YOU DO NOT need EMP bombs to pass the three crushers. THAT was my mistake - it's just timing. Once at the teleport pad, drop a crawly bomb to shut off the first gunner then a second one to blow up the red block. Once that wall is cleared, make your way back to the teleport pad (you must still have the shield this time), disable the first gunner as before, sacrifice the shield getting through the second gunner, then once you're at the wall, the rest is easy.

Getting JIGman 4:

If you got the M in the same browser session, there is an easier way to get to the pile of stones - keep in mind the blocks that were in the way are now gone (see the map).

Good luck.

I hate platformers, mostly due to the frustration of barely missing jumps and having to start from the beginning of the area. Still, though, I just couldn't resist and I couldn't stop once I started... Finally got all the letters and the JIGman bits. Had to rely on the guide to see if stuff I was trying was just hard or if I needed an upgrade. Usually it was just hard :(.

I HATE SPIKES!!!!

Sorry, just had to get that off my chest.

Also, the reason there are so few people on the hall of fame is because this game is too effing difficult. There just isn't anything *casual* about it, especially since every time you leave, it forgets all the blocks you worked so hard to blow up/turn off.

Jay, it saves my progress as far as letters and JIGman bits are concerned, but it resets all walls and switches. Are you saying there's a way to convince it not to do that?

Score: 0 (0 votes) Vote up Vote down Report this comment Reply

Jay, there are points in the game where if you can just get past whatever spike field/stomper/what-have-you is currently blocking your path, you can blow up a bit of wall, which then lets you bypass that obstacle the next time you need to visit that vicinity. I'm thinking in particular of the lower right corner (have I mentioned that I HATE SPIKES?), which you have to revisit to get JIGman bit #4; but there are other points, too.

(Perhaps the walkthrough should mention that before you even attempt to acquire the M, make sure you have enough time to also acquire the U and then JIGman bit #4 in the same session.)
