    Characters: Hillbilly, Time Traveler and Twins.

    1. Send the Time Traveler to the right side of the room to pick up a crowbar, then move back towards the left and use this tool to pry the boards off the barricade.
    2. Enter the tunnel to continue moving left and float over or under the obstacles ahead, then drop down through the next shaft to reach the cave floor below and turn right to approach the crate.
    3. Pull the crate all the way over to the wall on the left and climb on top of it, then double-jump to the next ledge above and drop onto the wooden bridge in front of you.
    4. Take control of the Hillbilly and move him through the same tunnel path as the Time Traveler to join him at his current location, then repeat this action again with the Twins to cause a bridge collapse and fall down the long shaft below to eventually land in water.
    5. As the Twins, swim over to the ledge on the right to enter the Gift Shop and speak with the clerk to acquire the Novelty-Sized Key.
    6. Return to the water and swim to the ledge on the left to approach the “Employees Only” Door, then open it with the key and drop down the next shaft ahead to land on the cave floor below.
    7. Head right to drop down the next ladder in front of you and take control of the Time Traveler to teleport through the nearby Broken Old Well, then examine the symbol on the wall to see a picture of the future.
    8. Rejoin the group to drop down the shaft below and pull the lever on the right, then return to surface level and head left to teleport through the metal gate ahead.
    9. Vault over another gap to proceed forward down the tunnel and jump to the next wooden platform above.
    10. Jump back and forth between the ledges above to ascend through the shaft, then approach the next Old Well on the right and remove its rusty crank with your crowbar.
    11. Pick up the Rusty Crank and return to the metal gate to open it with the nearby lever, then attach the crank to the Broken Old Well to start turning it and raise the bucket.
    12. Take control of the Twins to collect the bucket and proceed forward beneath the metal gate ahead, then ascend through the next shaft above to reach the wooden sign on the left and examine it to see a picture of “Cute Kids and a Happy Family”.
    13. Continue ascending the shaft to reach the Fuse Box above and place the bucket on top of it, then remove the fuse to return to the previous ladder and drop into the next room beneath it.
    14. Place the fuse in the Empty Fuse Box and use the vending machines beside it to pick up a hotdog, then return to surface level and head left to reach the bell in front of the pit of spikes.
    15. Toss a hot dog into the pit of spikes and take control of the Time Traveler, then collect the fuse from the box in the room below and join the Twins by the bell.
    16. Ascend through the shaft above to insert the fuse into the box at the top and take control of the Hillbilly, then make your way to the Time Traveler’s current location and the Levers and Such.
    17. Take control of the Twins to ring the bell and summon the monster,then take control of the Hillbilly to pull the lever and lower the claw to capture the monster below.
    18. Drop back to the floor below and jump across the pit of spikes on the left, then examine the next cave painting ahead to see a picture of “Growing Up Hillbilly”.
    19. Proceed forward through the tunnel to reach the open cavern area ahead and drop into the pool of water below to complete this part of the game.

    This is not helpful because not everyone plays as the twins. I’m using the Knight, Time Traveler and Monk and cannot go any further. Plus the game killing bugs make this a 2 star game out of 10. Would not recommend.

    Sorry to hear you’re having troubles with the game, but we’re working on getting notes for each of the playable characters. Because of the branching paths, that will take a little bit of time — but, many of the puzzles are still solved the same way, no matter which characters you have.

    If you’ve got a specific problem you’re running into and need help with, please let us know! We’re all about providing answers here.
