    The plot thickens! Ahead, you’ll have to deal with something slightly new. A laser will fire, activating the holographic generator, allowing safe passage across the water. Hurry left to get by!

    To find a hidden gem, drop down to the lava block in the very bottom-left corner. The lava will blast those who land on it up into fake blocks where a gem has been stashed.

    Say hello to the buzzsaws! These deadly traps will kill your friend while sliding back and forth. Don’t touch these little suckers.

    Continuing down the path, take note of the gold yarn. Ahead, you’ll find bomb blocks suspended over water. To get over this hurdle, jump to the bomb block above on the right. Setting off the bomb will clear the way for the laser to create a bridge.

    GOLD YARN LOCATION: Before blowing up the bomb blocks to create a second bridge of holographic blocks, walk through the blue fake block to the left of the generator and jump into the portal.

    The green egg creature is new. For now, all you need to know is that it wants to help. It’ll walk down to the edge of the water and open it’s mouth. Step in and it’ll shoot your friend over the water.

    There’s much more to know about the green creatures, but for now, just move on to the exit.


    To get through the first tricky jump, stand against the brown blocks until the holographic blocks disappear. While falling, you’ll have two jumps to cross the water and get to the fan.

    For a hidden gem, jump to the sludge block and wall jump, then double-jump up to the cloud. The blue blocks left of the cloud hide the gem.

    Getting under the buzzsaw is tricky. You’ll need to use a slide-attack (forward-attack) to get across.

    Yet another hidden gem is located above the laser and caution button to the right of the single sludge block. Move out the floating block to create a new stepping stone to reach the fake blue blocks above.

    At the bottom right corner, you’ll need to use the green egg creature the same way. Wait for it to break out, stop at the water, and step into its mouth.

    GOLD YARN LOCATION: After using the green egg creature to cross the water, use the cat’s darts to reach the clouds above. Run forward, grab the rock, and throw it forward to drop it through the cloud. It’ll kill the cat, but also land on a holographic generator, creating a bridge to the yarn below.

    To grab a hidden gem before the exit, step into the blue fake block to the left of the yellow cardboard tree in the area with the rocket lift.


    To get over the water right at the start – just run! Your momentum will take you over the deadly water spaces.

    On the ice blocks, don’t forget to slide! You can run and duck this time to get by the buzzsaw.

    GOLD YARN LOCATION: To get the yarn, you’ll find the area after taking the portal. Drop down onto the holographic blocks as they appear and run left instead of right. Jump to the caution button to buzzsaw the monster, and you’ll have no problem getting the yarn.

    After crossing three blocks of water near the top of the zone, climb up and move the floating block onto the caution button to make some blocks disappear. Dropping back down, step right and drop through the fake blocks underneath the now deactivated block.

    Don’t forget to grab the last gem with the jetpack above the exit. Jump from the holographic blocks while they’re around.


    This level is all about caution blocks. The blue blocks will constantly switch on and off.

    Against the left wall, after getting by the path with blue caution blocks above bomb blocks, which are themselves over water, you’ll find a single caution block above a lava block. Wait for it to disappear.

    You’ll drop down onto the lava through fake blocks. Jump through the clouds, then jump through another caution block to collect a hidden gem.

    GOLD YARN LOCATION: Before leaving the area, you’ll have to deal with a room where two cats throw balls. To get the yarn, don’t kill the cat at the top standing on a holographic generator! When moving to the exit, past it by and ride the lift up to the holographic blocks. With the generator active, getting the yarn is easy.


    Take the path right through the laser and climb the shifting blocks. Sliding down the sludge, wait for the blocks on the left to appear before making the jump.

    Ride the horse down onto the spikes then across the water.

    GOLD YARN LOCATION: This one is easy. After riding the pig-horse-critter over the water, use the lava blocks to jump to the clouds. Wait for the blocks to appear, then run right into the green fake blocks to reach this yarn.

    Over the brown water and lasers, you’ll find a buzzsaw trapped behind caution blocks. Stop onto the buttons to free it, then jump away. You’ll need the buzzsaw to hit those buttons for you to continue to the portal.

    Through the portal, let the green portal critter cross the water and stand on the holographic generator.
