Use each gem of it wisely and your dreams will come true. Blinx is a time patroller for the Time Factory, which makes and delivers time to various dimensions. Supervisors monitor time, and make sure there aren't any glitches. Glitches are cleaned up by the time sweepers. The Tom-Tom gang are invading dimension B1Q64. They are stealing the time crystals to sell them to other dimensions, and have captured the princess. But something unexpected has happened. Some of the Time Crystals have begun to turn into monsters. With the world in danger of destruction, the Time Factory orders all personal to clear the dimension so it can be cut off from the factory. Bravely, Blinx charges into the Time Gate to rescue B1Q64 and Princess Lena. Note - When I run into an enemy or object that doesn't have an official name, I make one up until I find an official name :p II - Controls Left Control Stick - Move Blinx Right Control Stick - Move Camera A Button - Jump A Button (after jump) - Double Jump Left/Right + A - Cartwheel Back + A - Back flip Hold X/Right Trigger - Suck with Sweeper Tap X/Right Trigger - Fire Time Sweeper III - Crystals There are 5 Different Time Crystals, plus retry crystals Blue Moon Shaped Crystals - Pause Yellow Star Shaped Crystals - Slow Purple Cross Shaped Crystals - Rewind Green Diamond Shaped Crystals - Record Orange Pyramid Shaped Crystals - Fast Forward Red Heart Shaped Crystals - Retry A combination is grabbed by collecting 4 Crystals. If three of them are the same, you gain that ability. For example, if you grab 3 Slow crystals and one Pause crystal, you will gain one Slow. Also, if you get all 4 crystals of the same type, you will get 2 of that ability! Any other combination will result in a bad combo, which will have no power. Be careful! If you collect more time controls than you have slots (available slots shown under pause icon), whichever time control you got first will be lost. When you get hit, you lose. But if you have a retry, everything will rewind about 5 seconds (yes, everything, including you, collected items, enemies hit, ect ect), but may rewind more to allow you a fair chance to avoid what hit you the first time. Gold looks like crystals, but are gold in color and can be in any shape, but do not affect combinations. Gold comes in 3 sizes, small being the size of a time crystals, and Large being about the size of Blinx. Gold Vaues: Shape Small Value Medium Value Large Value Star 15 45 75 Cross 12 36 60 Heart 12 36 60 Moon 10 30 50 Diamond 8 24 40 Pyramid 5 15 25 IV - Time Control To activate a time control, hold down B and move the cursor to the time control you wish to use. Pause (Pau) will cause time to stop. Falling objects will stop in the air, enemies will stop moving, and you are free to move without distraction. Rewind (Few) will cause everything to move backwards, while you can still move normally. Broken objects will reconstruct, enemies will move backwards, ect. Fast Forward (FF) will cause everything, including you, to move much faster than normal. Use this to improve your time when going for rank. Although the enemies move faster, fear not, you are invulnerable during this time. But if you get hit, you will be thrown back, and you will exit FF mode. Slow (Slo) will cause everything except for you to slow down. Record (Rec) will record your actions for 10 seconds. After that, it will rewind back to when you first activated record, and a "ghost" of you will repeat exactly what you did. You cannot touch it, but it can push switches and perform other actions you can normally do. While you are recording, you are invincible, so take advantage.

G (Purchased in shops) Super Bomb - 250G Spike Bullet - 200G X - Levels On the stage select screen, you can see your best time, as well as level difficulty, the number of enemies, and the number of "Secrets" AKA medals. Medals you have found will be in gold, the ones you haven't found will be empty outlines. Note that for the sweeper requirements for S+, I'll list the most basic sweeper that wil sufice, but you can use a superior sweeper with the necessary effects, for example, the Supreme sweeper. Keep in mind my ways of getting an S+ are not the only way, rather, it's the way I found. Also, when it says don't fool around, that means it's really easy to get the S+. If it says don't fool around, I was able to get it with no upgrades (3 time commands, level 1 sweeper, 5 trash maximum) and without using time commands besides the ones that are needed to clear the level (eg. records to hold buttons, rewinds to use a cart in reverse) =============================================================================== Round 1: Time Square Round 1 Stage 1: Difficulty - * S+ time - 0:30 A+ time - 1:00 Monsters - 3 Cat Medals Gold - To get this medal, let the statue at the beginning of the stage collapse. Stand on one of the pieces and use the rewind command. This will bring you up to the medal and a platform with lots of gold. Silver - There are 2 ways to get this one. Immediately activate a pause and grab it from under the statue before it collapses. Or you can rewind after it collapses to grab this medal. Red - Once again, there are 2 ways to get this one. The first is to suck up the 16 Ton Weight, but you won't have a strong enough sweeper the first time around. To go in the other way, grab a large trash can before the exit. Then shoot that trash can against the wall. Double- Jump from it to the platform above, where the 4 pause (blue) crystals are. Beyond those are the medal and the weight. Walkthrough - As soon as you enter, you'll see several crystals in front of you, as well as a ramp going down. As you reach the bottom of the ramp, a statue will collapse in front of you. You'll see another ramp to the left. Go up that and suck the trash. Just beyond is a Chrono Blob. Hit it with a piece of trash to destroy it. Step on the blue switch to open the gate. After the gate, go up the ramp and destroy the Chrono Blob waiting at the top. Follow the walkway to the next blue switch. Step on it to open the door to the left. A couple pieces of gold will be in front of you, as well as a series of ramps going down will be to your left. The last Chrono Blob is on the ramp. Destroy it and head to the exit. S+ requirements - Lv 3 sweeper, a record time command. S+ tips - After you beat the first Chrono Blob, use a record. With your image, hit the button, and defeat the second Chrono Blob. When normal time resumes, suck up the 16 ton weight, and shoot it at the last Chrono Blob as you jump onto the exit platform. Round 1 Stage 2: Difficulty - ** S+ time - 0:50 A+ time - 1:30 Monsters - 6 Cat Medals Red - found beside the blue switch after the boss Silver - stand on the flat stone after the statues collapse near the boss. Use the Rewind function to make the statue reform. The medal will be above you. Gold - go through the gate that opens with the blue switch. Jump onto the platform on the wall directly ahead of you. Jump up again to find the gold medal. Walkthrough - There will be a ramp going down in front of you. There will be 2 gold pyramids at the bottom of the ramp. A Chrono Blob will be waiting for you along the side of the ramp. Through the arch into the next section, you'll see a Spiker, which looks like a Chrono Blob, but if it gets close enough, it will flash and grow spikes. If it does this, GET OUT OF THE WAY. There is also a Chrono Blob and a Dust Hearder. Kill the blob and Spiker first. The Dust Hearder will launch trash at you, so either dodge it or suck it with your sweeper. Also, take the Clock Ball he's standing on. Go up the ramp with the barrels rolling down. Have lots of trash ready, this boss takes about 3 hits He'll take all the gold until it's all gone or he is defeated. Go to the left and hit the blue switch. Back where the boss was, a door will be open. Go up the ramp and destroy the Spiker and Dust Hearder. Hit the blue button. Go back to the boss' room and go through the other door. It will lead to the exit. S+ requirements - a record time command S+ tips - At the start, grab 4 pieces of trash. Beat the first 4 monsters. Grab the 3 pieces of trash at the bottom of the ramp (flower pot, 2 trash cans) but grab the red trash can last. Ignore the Tom-Tom. Get close to the second gate. Shoot the trash can at the wall, then use a record. Jump onto the can and then jump up to the next platform. Hit the switch and defeat the last two enemies. When you return to real time, head to the gate and wait for your copy to open it, and if needed, hit the spiker if it rolled down. You don't have any time to fuss around, so use a FF if you need to. Round 1 Stage 3: Difficulty - * S+ time - 0:55 A+ time - 1:30 Monsters - 6 Cat Medals Red - found on a small ledge on the far side of the roof before a Dust Hearder. Gold - hidden behind the first 16 Ton Weight Silver - behind the 16 Ton Weight behind the exit. Stand on the machine and use a FF to make it lauch you up to the medal. Walkthrough - As soon as you appear, you'll see several barrels rolling down a series of ramps going up. Go up the ramps. Pick up the weights, those are worth a lot of gold at the end of a level. Cross the wood bridge to the next roof top. Don't worry if you fall here. You can take the blue spring at the bottom back to the top. Barrels will be rolling down part of the roof. Past those is the first enemy, a Chrono Blob. Kill it and proceed across the next bridge. On the next platform, an octoballoon will be there. This will lead you to a series of rooftops. Be careful for the Dust Hearder. He will probably shoot trash at you before you can hit him, so be ready for that. After another Chrono Blob, you'll come to a wooden platform on the right side. A Chrono Blob and Octoballoon are there. These are the last two enemies. Cross the next roof top, and cross the bridge. Barrels will be rolling down the next roof top. Watch out for exploding barrels, they have sticks of dynamite out each side. Then go through the exit. S+ requirements - none S+ tips - don't fuss around. Just run. Also, rather than running all the way up the ramp at the beginning, you can jump up the side. Round 1 Boss: Difficulty - * S+ time - 0:30 A+ time - 0:50 Monster - Giant Dust Hearder Cat Medals - None Walkthrough - The boss will immediately shoot trash at you, so hide behind some of the trash to either side. When he bounces, he will bounce between 4 points which form a square around the outside of the area. If he lands near you, he'll spin and grow, which may hit you if you aren't careful, and he can't be hit during this attack. From time to time, he'll shoot trash at you. He takes 4 hits, and is invulnerable right after he is hit and while he is blinking. Use Pause or Slow so you can collect all the gold after you defeat him, and don't forget to grab the most valuable garbage. S+ requirements - 2 spiked balls (shops) S+ tips - I used 2 spiked balls. Just hit him hard and hit him fast. =============================================================================== Round 2: Deja Vu Canals Round 2 Stage 1: Difficulty - * S+ time - 1:05 A+ time - 1:40 Monsters - 8 Cat Medals Red - After the first Chrono Blob, there is a passage to the right. There are a couple of gears at the entrance. Go straight through to find the medal. Gold - After the first Chrono Blob, step onto the next platform. There is a small section of water surrounded by stone. Suck up the water with the Ice Sweeper. Use a pause when the spikes are open so you can get through. Then climb the ladder. The medal is to the right. Silver - Before the exit, you will pass over a bride. Jump in the water to the left. Suck up the water using the Ice Sweeper. Then open the chest to get the medal. Walkthrough - Wide open space. Sound fun? It is. After you go into the clearing in front of you, there will be two Octoballoons to the right. Take them out and collect the gold. At the bottom, go to the left and head into the knee deep stream. A Chrono Blob is in the water past the arch. Pick up the bomb. You'll see a Keropper in front of you. There are 2 basic ways to take them out. The first (and eaisier) is to just throw a bomb at it while it is facing you. It will eat the bomb and it will explode. The other way is to throw trash at it. It will eat the trash, but it will get bigger and slower. Then you just have to hit it in the back (feed it more trash, or use time controls). Go up the stream and up the ramp over the end. On the platform, you'll see several RW crystals and a Dust Hearder. The bridge onto the next platform will collapse, so that's where you'll need a rewind. After defeating the Chrono Blobs, hit the blue button and go down the stairs. A gold Chrono Blob is waiting at the bottom. It is twice as strong as the green ones, so you may have to hit him twice unless you're using heavy trash. Go through the last door and up the ramp to get to the exit. S+ requirements - a spiked bullet, a record time command S+ tips - Grab the three red trash cans when you start. Kill the first two enemies with two shots. When you reach the two pause crystals at the bottom, use a record. Make your image go into the water, kill the Chrono Blob, then use the spiked bullet to kill the Keropper in one shot. When you resume normal time, shoot out the last red trash can between the pause crystals. Jump up onto the next platform just to the left of the trash cans, 'cause the clock will block you from going up. Sweep the 3 trash cans, take out the Chrono Blobs, and take out the Dust Hearder with a well aimed shot. Hit the switch and jump down, use your spiked bullet to kill the gold Chrono Blob. Round 2 Stage 2: Difficulty - * S+ time - 1:20 A+ time - 1:50 Monsters - 9 Cat Medals Blue - When you see the first bridge collpase, jump into the water. Suck up the rusted car that is blocking a passage. The blue medal is inside the treasure box at the end of the passage. Hit it with a piece of trash to open it. Gold - Suck up the 16 Ton Weight (before the ramp with the Chrono Blob on it). The medal is on a pedestal inside the room behind the weight. Alternately, you can go in the small passage just to the right and below one end of the collapsed bridge (see silver). Silver - After crossing the river with boats in it, there are pieces of a collapsed bridge on a set of stairs. Hit the rewind button to reassemble the bride, then walk to the platform with the medal. Red - On the platform with the exit, look to the left. Cross the rooftops to find the red medal. Walkthrough - Over the first bride, there's a Chrono Blob and a Spiker. After the first arch, there will be another bridge. Be sure to watch out for the Tom-Tom who pops his head out of the ground. The bride will collapse, so use a rewind to fix it. Cross the bride, hit the blue switch, jump over the cloth- covered crates, and go through the gate. Take out the Octoballoons. There is a Chrono Blob on the ramp, take him out and proceed. Cross the river by jumping from boat to boat. At the other side, there's a Keropper waiting. There are bombs behind him, so run past him and feed him a bomb. Go up the ramps with the barrels and hit the blue switch at the top. Go through the door and take out the Chrono Blobs (one green, one gold). Cross the bridge and take out the Dust Hearder at the top of the ramp. The exit is right in front of you. S+ requirements - a pause time command, a rewind time command, and a level 2 sweeper S+ tips - Suck up only 2 pieces of trash at the start. Activate your pause while you are still on the first bridge. Kill the Chrono Blob and the Spiker, then suck up 3 more pieces of trash. Time should resume just as you are crossing the crumbling bridge. Hit the button. Now go up to the next room. Shoot the Octoballoons. Sweep the large barrel in the corner, followed by the two smaller barrels next to it. Kill the Chrono Blob on the ramp. As you are going down that ramp, use a rewind so the river will help you. When you reach the Keropper, sweep a bomb and make him swallow it. Hit the blue switch, then take out the last 3 enemies, using the large barrel on the gold Chrono Blob. Round 2 Stage 3: Difficulty - * S+ time - 1:30 A+ time - 2:00 Monsters - 9 Cat Medals Red - When you see the Dust Hearder, go into the river. There is a passage under the steps that lead down to the Dust Hearder. The red medal is inside this passage. Gold - It's under the bride where the Dust Hearder is standing. You can get it by jumping between the bridge and the waterfall and letting the current take you to it. Blue - After defeating the mini-boss, go into the passage across from the roulette-target. Suck up the 16 Ton weight and open the treasure chest to get it. Silver - After you battle the Tom-Tom, go toward the ramp. Now go past the ramp. Besides the ramp is a pool of water. Suck it up with the Ice Sweeper. The medal is under the metal plate. Walkthrough - As you begin, there is a large stream in front of you. Of course, you have to fight the current, or this game wouldn't be Blinx ^_^. Collect some garbage, and start jumping from boat to boat. A Chrono Blob is on the second to last platform on the right side. Cross another river by jumping from one side to the other to get around the walls. Go up the ramp and hit the target with some trash. Just through the other side of the door is two Chrono Blobs, and to make things not so easy, the are both gold. Taking them out isn't too hard if you have enough trash handy. Go down the stairs and hit the blue switch to lower the bridge. There will be two Octoballoons and a Spiker on the other side. Take them out and hit the switch to open the door on the other side of the bridge. Go through the door, up the ramp, and find the Spiker waiting for you. Take him out. Take all the trash you can, as a Tom-Tom is waiting at the bottom of the stairs ahead. He only takes 3 hits, but take him out quickly because he steals whatever time crystals and gold are on the ground. After beating him, take out the Dust Hearder on the bridge over the river. Go up the ramp and cross a small arch-style bridge to find the last Keropper. There is a bomb on the left side, so use that to make your job eaisier. Cross the last bridge, and this level is officially swept. S+ requirements - 2 rewind time commands, 2 records, and a level 3 sweeper. S+ tips - suck up the three trash cans to your right as you appear. Walk into the river and hit a rewind. Jump onto the platform with the Chrono Blob. Kill him and take one more trash can. Cross the river to the 16 ton weight by jumping across the boat. Suck up the weight, then the two empty drums to the right of it. Shoot a drum at the target. Use the other drum and the weight to hit the gold Chrono Blobs. Now use a record. Walk off the edge and jump about half way down so you don't fall on your face. Jump through the river and to the other side. Take out the three enemies with your three shots. When you resume normal time, wait for the Chrono Blob to recover, then hit him again. Walk off the edge the same way you did before, and jump into the river. As soon as you are able, use the rewind. Hit the Dust Hearder, then run toward the next ramp. When you can, use a record. Make him go up the stairs to take out the spiker. When normal time resumes, go up the ramps, grab the bomb, feed it to the Keropper, then leave. Round 2 Boss Difficulty - ** S+ time - 0:50 A+ time - 1:15 Monster - Big Keropper Cat Medals - None Walkthrough - Like a normal Keropper, he will eat any trash you shoot at him. After you hit him, he will shoot all the trash you fed him so far back at you. Also, when he starts flashing and a green cloud is around him, move to the side becuase he will jump at you. He can't go into the water or the platforms, so use this to our advantage. The eaisiest ways to hit him is after he charges or pause him in a jump. S+ requirements - a spiked bullet, a pause, a record S+ tips - head straight for the main room when you appear. As soon as he's on the ground, pause him. Run across the pond, hit him with the bullet, then suck up another piece of trash. When he recovers, use a record and run along the cement. When time resumes, get behind him and hit him with the trash you have. Then go to the exit. =============================================================================== Round 3: Hourglass Caves Round 3 Stage 1: Difficulty - ** S+ time - ? (1:14:13 = S+)(1:52:06 = A+) A+ time - 2:30 Monsters - 12 Cat Medals Red - Suck up the 16 Ton Weight in the second chamber. The medal is behind that. Or you can jump to the left from the third floating cube over the sand river. Silver - When you see the sand waterfall with the logs falling (all of this is after the floating cube part), jump in at the waterfall. Stay close to the center. This will take you under the platform with the enemies on it, and take you to the medal. Gold - Before the exit, there is a platform to the rightside of the sand waterfall. Launch a large object into the wall just before the exit. Jump onto it and double-jump to the medal. I used a large coral for this. Walkthrough - When you appear, there will be tons of garbage around you. Pick it up, because the next room has 3 enemies, 2 octoballoons, and a green Dust Hearder. This Dust Hearder is twice as tough as the origional. In the next room, you'll see a Chrono Blob, but be careful for the less obvious Molegon. Wait for the dust to come under your feet, then jump back and give him some trash. There's lots of gold in the treasure box, so don't forget to grab some. Hit the blue button at the top of the ramp, and jump down to the newly opened door. Defeat the two gold Chrono Blobs. Then go upstream from the sand river by jumping from spring to spring. Or if you feel like having a little more fun, use rewind and let the sand take you. Just don't forget the two Octoballoons above the river. On the next platform, beat the Chrono Blob and the Keropper. Then go to the exit to the left. Round 3 Stage 2: Difficulty - ** S+ time - ? (2:32:00 = S+) A+ time - ? (3:12:76 = A+)(3:55:46 = B+) Monsters - 14 Cat Medals Red - Suck up all the corals just after you slide down the first sand waterfall. Gold - As you cross the sand river on the series of springs, there will be a 16 ton weight ahead. Stand on the tiny corner of the platform that you can stand on and suck up the weight. The medal is inside the chamber beyond. Silver - After going up the river using the springs, suck up the large coral by the stairs up. The medal is under it. Walkthrough - Collect the trash in the first room, then go through the sand that is falling. You'll fall into a large room with a purple octoballoon. Kill it with two hits. Further to the right side, you'll find two more blue octoballoons. Defeat them to open the gate. Head up the ramp. At the top, double jump onto the cloud bricks. There is a blue octoballoon on the right side, and be careful for the Tom-Tom on the other side of the sand river. In the next room, there is a Dust Hearder to the left, and three gold Chrono Blobs hopping around. Through the gate, you'll find a blue and a purple Octoballoon. Jump from blue platform to platform to cross the river. In the next room, you'll see a Dust Hearder to your left and a Keropper ahead, but be careful for the two Molegons in the room. Round 3 Stage 3: Difficulty - *** S+ time - ? (2:43:60 = S+) A+ time - ? (5:05:53 = B+) Monsters - 13 Cat Medals Red - Jump into the first sand river and hit rewind. It's in the far back corner. Make sure you hit rewind before you hit the spikes. Silver - Continue going up the blue springs after the series of sand waterfalls/slanted rivers. It's above the last blue spring. Gold - On the last of the slanted sand rivers/waterfalls, hit rewind to make it take you up. The gold medal is in a small room on the left. Walkthrough - As always, start off by collecting the nearby trash. There are two gold Chrono Blobs, a Dust Hearder, and an Octoballoon just beyond the starting platform. Cross using the ramp on the right side. The sand river will take you right into a set of spikes, so stay out of it if you can. At the top of the next section, there is a series of slanted sand rivers. Jump onto the blue platform to get up on the one in front of you. Let the current take you, then jump off onto the next blue platform. From here, jump from platform to platform until you reach solid ground. Next, you'll find a much wider sand waterfall. Jump onto the nearest stone, then onto the Cloud Blocks. Don't forget to take out the Octoballoons (3). The next gate will close behind you. There is a purple Octoballoon and two blue Octoballons, as well as a green Dust Hearder in the next room. Watch out as you go through the next gate. A Tom- Tom is inside. After you take out the Tom-Tom, clear out all the time crystals you have, BUT DON'T TAKE ANY GREEN. Once your crystals are clear, grab all three green crystals leading up to the switch on the right, and if you can, a fourth from the boss, but any crystal will do for the fourth. Jump onto the switch. Then use the Record time function. Use the other Blinx to hit the other switch. Make him stand there. Once the game rewinds, wait, and as soon as the recording hits the switch, run through the gates. Take out the gold Chrono Blob and the Keropper (there are bombs just past the exit gate). That's all there is to this level. S+ requirements - none S+ tips - don't fool around. Round 3 Boss: Difficulty - ** S+ time - ? (0:29:53 = S+)(0:39:43 = A+) A+ time - 1:00 Monster - Giant Molegon Cat Medals - None Walkthrough - As soon as you have control, jump up and to the right, onto one of the platforms. Molegon can move much faster than you in the sand, so you don't want to give him that kind of an edge. You can see where he is by watching his trail of dust. When he tries to eat the platform you are on, jump off and hit him with some trash. S+ requirements - A spiked bullet, a fast forward time command. S+ tips - Jump onto the platform and give him the spike for the first hit. As soon as you do, use the fast forward, and jump onto the next platform. Sweep another piece of trash. He will come at you quickly, so be ready to jump and hit him again. Then go straight for the exit, don't worry about his gold. =============================================================================== Round 4: Forgotten City Round 4 Stage 1: Difficulty - ** S+ time - ? (3:53:16 = S+)(4:35:60 = A+) A+ time - ? (4:37:03 = A+)(6:13:26 = B+) Monsters - 16 Cat Medals - Blue - Jump down the pit near the Keropper. It's in a dead end farthest away from the ladder by the tree. Red - Jump down into the water before the Seuss Gate. Silver - On the branch of a tree as you aproach the exit. Gold - Before the Seuss Gate, jump down and suck up the cannon. Go through the passage and up the stairs to get the medal. Walkthrough - As soon as you appear, you'll see a room full of bombs. If you prefere, hit the enemies individually by jumping and shooting or using their own trash, or you can just shoot a bomb in and let the whole room explode. The first room has a Dust Hearder and two Octoballoons. After defeating them, the gate into the next room will open. A gold Chrono blob is in the next room. Be careful, because you'll most likely only have bombs to defeat him with. Jump onto the lever with the side with four triangles. Now use a record and jump onto the side with a large circle. Once you return to normal time, wait. The recording will launch you into the air and onto the next platform. Another Octoballoon and two Spikers are on that platform, and it is covered in bombs. Hit the target with the trash can beneith it to open the gate. Once again, the next room is filled with bombs. There is a Spiker, an Octoballoon, and a gold Chrono Blob in there. Use extreme care fighting the Spiker. Don't hit it with a bomb when it's rolling or if it's too close. Hit the blue switch to lower the draw bridge. The stone bride will collapse as you cross the draw bridge, so use a rewind to cross. A red Keropper is waiting on the other side of all the bridges. Feed him a couple of bombs to get him out of the way. Now hit the target to make a balloon appear. Suck the balloon and hold it until you float to the next platform. Cross the bridge and fight what I like to call the Seuss Gate (dunno, the creature just strikes me as something you'd see in a Dr. Seuss book.) When you get near a Seuss Gate, a ghost flies out. Destroy that and it will fly back to the gate and die. Finally, a red Keropper, a Dust Hearder, and what I call a Phantom Lizard will be waiting in the next room. A Phantom Lizard will take 10 hits of trash to get rid of the illusion, then the lizard will take another hit. The lizard is VERY fast, so be ready to hit it as soon as it stops blinking. One hit with a flame sweeper will destroy his illusion. Round 4 Stage 2: Difficulty - ** S+ time - ? (3:53:40 = S+) A+ time - ? (5:02:73 = A+)(9:01:96 = D+) Monsters - 16 Cat Medals - Gold - As soon as you appear, time a pause to open the spiked gate to your right. Go through and up the stairs, this medal is waiting at the top. Silver - On a tree branch/platform to the right of the "dominos" past the first Seuss Gate Red - You'll see a cannon in the wall to the left of the wall below the Silver Medal platform. Suck it up and go in to get the red. Blue - Just past the exit, down the cliff, the blue medal awaits, it does. Walkthrough - Lots of trash near the entrance, including some large pieces. As you go down the steps, two green Dust Hearders will be waiting for their chance to feed you some trash. The two gold Chrono Blobs are slightly tricky because of the bumpy ground, but they aren't too much of a threat. Grab the two bombs in the pool near the stone steps, go up the steps and onto the tree. Stand back and hit the target with a bomb. Go through the gate and give the other bomb to the red Keropper inside. While he's still recovering, get the other bomb and give him that as well. When you go in the next door, WATCH OUT! There will be three purple Octoballoons and a green Dust Hearder waiting. A yellow Spiker and a red Keropper are on the other side of the next gate, so be sure to grab the bomb in the Octoballoons' room. The Spiker will take 3 hits of normal trash. Take out the Seuss Gate to proceed. Jump across the row of stones that look like Dominos. Pause them and jump across to hit the blue switch. Jump down. A mini-boss is waiting near the circle of gold. A purple Octoballon drops down near there, so look out. Proceed up the steps over the small pond and across the bridge, through the next gate. There are two yellow Spikers near the exit, along with a Phantom Lizard. Sweep Complete. Round 4 Stage 3: Difficulty - ** S+ time - ? (3:31:93 = S+) A+ time - ? (4:15:00 = A+)(8:02:46 = D+) Monsters - 15 Cat Medals - Blue - As you go up the series of blue springs, get on the cloud blocks. Jump from block to block until you find the medal. Silver - Go past the tree behind you by the entrance. It is on the cliff. Red - After the first Phantom Lizard, jump onto the left "domino" and into the secret hole after. Gold - After the Dominos, jump down. To the left against the wall, you'll find a 16 ton weight. The medal is behind it. Walkthrough - You'll see several bombs in front of you, and wide, open space behind you. Start by taking out the enemies in the room full of bombs. There is a Dust Hearder and three Octoballoons. Set off a chain explosing to kill the Dust Hearder and hurt all the Octoballoons. Hit the blue switch to make a blue spring appear behind where you started. Go through the gate, with will only open when all the enemies are gone. Jump on the blue spring, and take the springs up to the large platform with the Dust Hearder. Take the balloon to the next section. On the platform, take out the Phantom Lizard and the two purple Octoballoons. Past that is another series of Domino Stones. Cross those, or if you fall, you can jump onto the next ledge using a series of raised stones. Beat the two purple Octoballoons. After that is a small dip in the path with two bombs, conviently before two red Keroppers. A Phantom Lizard is past them, along with lots of large trash. Finally, a Dust Hearder and a purple Octoballoon are all that stand in the way. Stand tall as king of the mountain, the exit waits at the top. Round 4 Boss: Difficulty - ** S+ time - ? (0:39:16 = S+) A+ time - ? (1:37:76 = A+)(2:56:23 = B+) Monster - Giant Dust Hearder (2 staffs) Cat Medals - None Walkthrough - That's right, he's back for revenge, and he isn't very nice. The arena is a series of hexagons. Whichever one he's going to jump on will turn red, so never run though the center of a hexagon. Also, he'll make the ground uneven, so don't set yourself so the only way to go is up. If he lands near you, he'll blink, spin, and grow, just like the first battle. If you feel the need, pause him before he lands and hit him while you have a chance. When he's down to the last third of his life, he'll start jumping while blinking and spinning, so just dodge until you get your chance. =============================================================================== Round 5: Temple of Lost Time Round 5 Stage 1: Difficulty - ** S+ time - ? (03:12:63 = S+) A+ time - ? (04:03:03 = A+)(7:48:60 = C+) Monsters - 14 Cat Medals - Red - from the first slide, walk down the left side, then jump back up to safety. Gold - after the room with the Slime Robot, freeze the spike gate open, go through, then stand on a piece of the statue (I prefere the flat piece), then use a rewind. once on top of the assembled statue, jump up to get it. Silver - after the last enemy, pause the collapsing portion. Jump off the left side, then jump back to safety. Walkthrough - Start by collecting all the trash. Go down the slide next to the two gold coins. Take out the gold Chrono Blob and the Molegon. Beat the blue Spiker and step on the blue switch. Be careful for the falling barrels, as dynamite barrels ocasionally come down. Backtrack a bit and go up the ramp. Jump across the gap using the moving platforms that you activated. Hit the next blue switch. Jump through the gate with the swinging blade. At the top of the next ramp, you'll find a room with two blue Octoballoons and a red one. After you beat them, a door will open. Go up the ramp. Go past the barrels. Be careful with your timing. You'll have to go through the gate and land on the platform, so watch both. Use a pause or slow if you need to. Pass another swinging blade gate. This one's not quite so hard as the first. When you land on the next platform, stay close to the side or you'll get knocked back by the barrels. At the top of the ramp, you'll find a room with an Octoballoon, a Dust Hearder, a gold Chrono Blob, and a Molegon. Up the next ramp, there is a swinging blade gate with a gold Chrono Blob behind it. Less obvious is the blue Spiker and the Slime Robot. Go through the next gate. Be careful, the walkway is just waiting to collapse. After you beat the last Octoballoon, just keep going straight to the exit. Round 5 Stage 2: Difficulty - *** S+ time - ? (3:49:46 S+) A+ time - ? Monsters - 16 Cat Medals - Gold - When you find the first spike gate, pause it. Go through and up the ramp until you find the collapsing statue. Stand on a piece and rewind it. It's slightly off to the side in the air. Red - After the gold medal (or the ramp between two swinging blade gates), use a rewind before you stand on the collapsing section of the bridge. It will begin to collapse, taking you down to the medal. Jump off to safety. Silver - After the Green Slime Robot, you'll see it off to one side. Jump down and grab it. You'll land by the pit with two cloud blocks and the two swinging blade gates. Walkthrough - After you collect all the garbage around you, step on the button next to the ramp. Off to the left, you'll see a bunch of pieces of trash, and be careful for the Molegon. Continue up the ramp, but watch out for the dynamite barrels. Jump through the blade and land on the moving cloud block. Beat the mini-boss. Go onto the sliding blocks. Cross the crumbling section, onto the next shifting block. On the next platform, there's an Octoballoon, a Molegon, and a Chrono Blob. Go on through the gates. You'll probably want to use a slow motion or a pause. Then cross the crumbing bride. There will be a green Spiker and two purple Octoballoons. Stand on one switch, then use a record to stand on the other. Go through the gate. Jump across the cloud blocks. The next room will have a Dust Hearder and three Octoballoons! Watch out for flying debris. The next room has a Chrono Blob, a Slime Robot, and a Spiker. A Dust Hearder is waiting on the bridge to the next section... This is about where I ran out of time, but it was the last enemy, so just keep going and I'll complete this section later. Round 5 Stage 3: Difficulty - **** S+ time - ? (4:39:76 = S+) A+ time - ? (5:21:10 = A+)(8:57:50 = C+) Monsters - 17 Cat Medals - Red - From the drain pipe, look to the left. Stand on the ledge, jump to the left, then jump back into the pipe. Easy stuff. Even if you don't make it back to the pipe, no big deal though. Silver - After the 3 shifting platforms followed by a pair of heart crystals, it is off the bottom of a ramp. Jump off and get it, then jump back to safty. If you fall, better pray you have a retry. Gold - In the room with the last blue switch, pause the gates open. Then go through and grab your medal. Make sure you have another pause so you can get out. Walkthrough - When you go through the first walkway, go to the left and hit the blue switch. Be careful for falling barrels. Follow the ramp down. There are two Spikers, a Molegon, and a Slime Robot. Hit the blue switch to make the platforms on the spikes start moving up and down. Go up the ramp, but stay on a side so you won't get hit by the exploding barrels. Jump across the platforms. You can pause the gate open, but don't bother. You can go around and in another way. The room has a Dust Hearder, two purple Octoballoons, and a blue Octoballoon. Beat them and go up what looks like a drain pipe. Turn right when you see the boulder. There are several locations with boulders in this level. One of them at random will roll at you when you step in it's path. It changes every time, so just be careful. Beat the Dust Hearder and the blue Octoballoonthen go down the ramp. In the next room, an Octoballoon, a Spiker, and a Slime Robot will be waiting. Beat them then hit the switch. As you start to go up the next ramp, look out! This is also a boulder ramp. Cross the shifting platforms. Go up the next series of ramps, then across another pair of shifting platforms. Go into the room on the right. Take out the Spiker and the Octoballoon, then hit the switch. As you leave, a section of the walkway will fall out from beneith you. Jump across the next sliding platform. Go up the ramp, but a part of it will fall out from under you. Go to the left. Another bridge section will fall out from under you. There is a boulder at the top of this ramp too. At the top of the ramp, there is another. Go up that ramp. At the top, you'll find a swinging blade gate with floating blue blocks behind it. Timing is essential. If you need to, use a pause or a
slow. After you go up the final ramp, a Spiker is waiting by the exit. Take him out and win the day. Round 5 Boss: Difficulty - ** S+ time - ? (1:26:80 = S+) A+ time - ? (2:03:56 = A+)(2:48:23 = B+) Monster - Green Trash Robot Cat Medals - None Walkthrough - When he rolls into a ball, run to one side, as he will roll toward you. After that, he will return to his starting position in a straight line, so stay out of the way. In humanoid form, he is vulnerable. He will jump around in human form. When he jumps, bombs will drop. Also, when he is hit, 3 small Slime Balls will split off. Beat the Slime Balls (1 hit each) before you hit him again, 'cause they get to be a pain real quick when there's a lot of them. If you feel over run, pause and pick them off. The real trick is to watch all around you, and don't hesitate to use a time control, especially when retries are low. =============================================================================== Round 6: Mine of Precious Moments Round 6 Stage 1: Difficulty - ** S+ time - ? (4:05:66 = S+) A+ time - ? (4:52:33 = A+)(8:50:66 = C+) Monsters - 14 Cat Medals - Red - Right after the first enemy, jump onto the platform below. The medal is semi hidden at the far end of the platform. To get back on the main path, jump onto the small platform, then the large one with the catapult. Either use the catapult, or jump across the next small platform to get railroad tracks. Silver - On the platform near the beginning, off to the right side, you'll see a treasure chest behind a 16 ton weight. That chest contains the medal. You can get to it using the platform that leads to the red medal. Gold - When you see the platform to the left of the first railroad tracks, you'll see the medal floating above it. Stop the boulder just above red light at the side of the tracks using a pause. Stand on the boulder and grab the medal with a well-aimed jump. Walkthrough - At the start, you'll see a Flame Lizard ahead. Unless you have the ice sweeper, you'll need to hit him 10 times to break his illusion. Your first shot will probably auto-aim to the target, so hit him with nine shots. Go back and pick up more trash, hit him one more time, then take out the lizard once his invincibility is gone. Go by him. Further up the track, boulders will start rolling at you. Jump over them to proceed. When you get to the end, go into the hole in the wall. Use a Pause or a Slow to get by the swinging blade gates. Past that, you'll find a gold Chrono Blob, a purple Chrono Blob, a green Dust Hearder, and a Seuss Gate. Take them out to go on. Go up the steps. You'll find a Tom-Tom there. Beat him quickly, and all the gold is yours. Continue along the train tracks. The bridge will collapse, so be ready with a time command. Defeat the two Chrono Blobs and hit the switch. At the other end of the platform, you'll need to hit a pair of targets, one with a bomb, the other with a barrel. After opening all 3 gates, go on. The next room has four Octoballoons and a Molegon. If you have a bomb, you can take a bunch of them out with one shot. The next gate will open once you beat them all. On the other side is a series of treadmills. Use a time command, because the exploding barrels will not make the trip any eaisier. Take out the Octoballoon as you jump across the treadmills. Take out the last Dust Hearder, then proceed to the exit. Round 6 Stage 2: Difficulty - *** S+ time - ? (3:20:10 = S+) A+ time - ? (6:31:90 = A+)(8:08:96 = C+) Monsters - 15 Cat Medals - Silver - Don't hit the switch for train 2. Instead, jump off as it drops down the pit to the other side. Now follow the path, and climb the wood platform. The medal is at the top. After you get it, jump back down to get to the where you board train 2. Alternatively, you can suck up the 16 ton weight in the octoballoon room and jump onto the other side of the tracks from there. Red - After the train passes two retry crystals, jump off and onto the tracks. There's a small opening on the left with the red medal. Gold - On the platform with the Chrono Blob and Molegon, jump onto a cart, then use a rewind. The cart will carry you to the medal. Walkthrough - This level can get a bit confusing, so bear with me. Jump up the steps, and jump onto the train. Defeat the 2 Chrono Blobs. Get through the gate by using a time control. Be creative, you can use any time control except FF to get through that gate. On the other side of the gate, you'll find a Dust Hearder and a purple Chrono Blob. Go up the ramp and hop onto train number 2. As the train is rolling, hit the target to change the direction of the train. As you get off the train, you'll go into a small room with 5 Octoballoons. They only take one hit each, just be careful of their trash. When you beat them, the door will open. Jump onto train 3. As you ride, hit the target with a piece of trash. At the end of this one, you'll find a Flame Lizard and a Dust Hearder. After you beat them, defeat the Seuss Gate. Don't stand on the bridge that leads to it, as that collapses. Hit the switch with a bomb. Cross the bridge that drops down. On the next platform, you'll find a Molegon and a purple Chrono Blob. Jump across the blue cloud blocks onto the final platform. Hit the Dust Hearder, then exit the stage. Round 6 Stage 3: Difficulty - *** S+ time - ? (3:38:60 = S+) A+ time - ? (6:50:10 = A+) Monsters - 14 Cat Medals - Gold - When you reach cart 6, go along the railroad track from where the cart came from. In the small room, you'll find the gold medal. Silver - When you got on cart 8, don't hit the switch. It will clear the jump, and at the end of that track, it's just off to the left before the cart falls into space. Red - On the final platform with two Octoballoons, look for the railroad tracks that decend on one side. Walk down those. Jump to the medal, then jump back onto the tracks. Walkthrough - If you don't have any records, exit now and get one. Hop onto cart 5. When it drops, jump off and onto the platform with the Chrono Blob and the Dust Hearder. Defeat them. As you ride on cart 6, hit the Octoballoon, then the switch. As you go around the bend, hit the next Octoballoon floating near the track. With three Octoballons and two Chrono Blobs, this next platform is a battlefield. Jump off the cart before it rounds the last corner. Pick off the blue Octoballoon first, as it only takes one hit. After you defeat them, go through the open door. Treadmills await. Use a Pause or a Slow to help you. At the top, there is a Molegon and a Dust Hearder. Jump onto cart 7 and hit rewind to make it carry you to the next section. Kill the Octoballoon, then jump onto cart 8. Shoot the last two Octoballoons as you pass. The cart will take you right to the exit. Round 6 Boss: Difficulty - **** S+ time - ? (0:50:53 = S+)(3:32:60 = A+) A+ time - ? (3:46:80 = A+) Monster - Giant Keropper (6 hits) Cat Medals - None Walkthrough - Time crystals are simple to get here, lined up in 4s. Start by grabbing any of the commands around the outside you need and wait for him to give you some trash. When he glows white, he'll dash straigh at you, so dodge to the side, then hit him in the back. When he recovers, he'll start shooting barrels at you. They won't hurt you, but then can push you off the edge. Also if you pause them, you can use them as ammo by sucking them into your sweeper. From time to time, he'll jump into the center and pound the ground, making some of the outer edge fall off. =============================================================================== Round 7: Everwinter Round 7 Stage 1: Difficulty - ***** S+ time - ? (5:38:16 = S+) A+ time - ? (7:32:90 = B+) Monsters - 16 Cat Medals - Blue - By the shifting ice, look off the left side of the steps on your way up. It's just off the edge. Red - On the platform with the two Spikers and the Spin Dragon. It's to the right of the door on the way in. Gold - On the same platform as the red medal, suck up the 16 ton weight. The gold medal is in the small room beyond. Silver - Beyond the exit, there is a series of steps going down. Go down the steps. In the large pile of garbage, suck up the car and the cannon, the silver medal is at the bottom of the dogpile. Walkthrough - As soon as you appear, you'll meet two enemies you've never seen yet. The Spin Dragon will make a tornado. Though that itself will not kill you, you won't be able to dodge other attacks. They take 2 hits. The other is what I call the Comicicle. Sounds kinda like Kamikaze Icicle or Combusting Icicle. Bla. Lame name, I know, but Spiker isn't much better. As soon as you hit a Comicicle, jump back, because it's goign to explode. Slide down the slope. A mini-boss Tom-Tom will appear. Defeat him. Use a time command to hit the switch and hold the gate open while you go through. Slide down the next slope. At the bottom, you'll come to a big field of ice. See the crack? Watch out, becuase the ice slides away. Be careful while fighting the three Octoballoons and the Dust Hearder. Climb up the slope. Another Octoballoon is on the slope. At the top, you find a switch. Hold the next gate open, then go through. Slide down the slope. At the bottom, you'll have to fight against a Spiker, an Octoballoon, a Spin Dragon, and an Comicicle. Go up the steps. At the top, you'll have to fight two Spikers and a Spin Dragon. Hit the last blue button, jump down, and go through the last gate. A Spiker and a Seuss Gate await you in the last room. Then go through the exit. Round 7: Everwinter Round 7 Stage 2: Difficulty - ***** S+ time - ? (4:36:76 = S+) A+ time - ? (7:54:33 = A+)(9:31:86 = D+) Monsters - 16 Cat Medals - Silver - At the beginning, jump down the left side. Follow the path to the spike gate, and pause it open. Jump through to get the silver medal. Jump down and that will lead you to where the first slide ends. Gold - After the first spike gate, get on the pump and use a fast forward. This does not include the spike gate near the silver medal. Blue - After the gate opens near the first metal, it's off to the right side of the really narrow bridge. Red - Near the Phantom Lizard, jump down to the platform below. The red medal is above the lake. Use the usual double jump technique to retrieve it. Then follow the path back up. Walkthrough - Grab all the trash around you, then slide down the slope. Be careful, the land at the bottom of the slope will collapse. Defeat the Octoballoon, the Spin Dragon, and the gold Spiker. Jump up onto the platform that leads to the next slope, and go down. It will collapse almost as soon as you slide, so pause it before you go. Defeat the two purple Octoballons and the red Dust Hearder at the bottom. Pause the spike gate open, go through, and defeat the Spiker. The gate in the last room will open. Go back throught the spike gate and through the new door. Be careful, the bride is very thin, so don't slip. Use a rewind to make the floor restore so you can cross. After them are a Octoballoon and a Phantom Lizard, followed by a Seuss Gate, then a Spiker, a Spin Dragon, and another Seuss Gate. Either go down the slide then up a cliff, or go through the spike gate (both options behind the Seuss Gates), then defeat the red Dust Hearder and purple Octoballoon. Beat the Comicicle. Go up the last cliff, then exit. Round 7 Stage 3: Difficulty - ***** S+ time - ? (7:43:96 = S+) A+ time - ? Monsters - 17 Cat Medals - Silver - After the second slide, jump up the steps to the left of the pool of water. Suck up the 16 ton weight, the medal is inside. Gold - It's off the side of the sliding block of ice by the blue cloud blocks. Pause when the ice is as far out as it will go. Now walk off the edge and flip back up. Blue - Jump down before the cloud block. The blue medal is in the passage back up to where the Comicicle is. Red - From the exit, jump down to the platform below. It will lead to a staircase back to the large room with several enemies. The red medal is above the stiars. Walkthrough - As the start, beat the Seuss Gate. Then go down the slide. A Spin Dragon and a Spiker are at the bottom. Hit the blue switch to open the gate. That will lead to another slide. At the bottom, jump up the small cliff. You'll see a small pool of water with hearts floating above it. Free retries ^_^ but don't touch the water. Further ahead is a Comicicle. Grab any gold you want, 'cause once you hit him, it'll scatter. Next is a series of blue cloud blocks. On the other side, you'll find an Octoballoon and a spin dragon. Just beyond them is a Phantom Lizard, an Octoballoon, a Spiker, and a Spin Dragon. Jump up the steps to the left and hit the switch. The gate will open to another slide. The first section will collapse, so use a pause. As you jump across, you'll find two Octoballoons and a Seuss Gate. A Spiker is behind the gate. To your left there is a block of shifting ice. A Spin Dragon, a Dust Hearder, and an Octoballoon wait on the other side. Trash is a little short here, so either continuously refresh your supply or use a record to increase the number of shots you can take. Round 7 Boss: Difficulty - **** S+ time - ? (2:35:26 = S+) A+ time - ? (3:37:43 = A+)(5:18:34 = B+) Monster - Giant Ice Molegon Cat Medals - None Walkthrough - His basic attack is to stick his head through a hole in the ice. After he does, he'll shoot trash cans at you, and that's the only ammo you can get in this battle. He'll stick his head out of the ice, giving you a free hit, but you have to be really close or use a time control. Every hit after the first, he'll a section of the field, usually the one you are standing on. Also, after the second hit, he won't stick his head through the ice anymore. Sometimes instead of thowing trash, he'll give you time crystals. If you are standing on one of the small platforms, he may try to eat you and end up eating the platform. If he does, you have a free shot at him. His other attack is to jump into the air and land on the ice, making a shock wave around him, but if you avoid the shock wave, you have a free shot at him. =============================================================================== Round 8: Forge of Hours Round 8 Stage 1: Difficulty - ***** S+ time - ? (3:35:86 = S+) A+ time - ? (5:13:93 = A+) Monsters - 11 Cat Medals - Gold - suck up the hook before the first jump. This will slide you down to the medal. Silver - it on the bottom of the lava that you have to drain. Red - It's on a small platform by the two large gears on the floor. Walkthrough - Gather the trash around you, then jump down the cliff to the platform of enemies below. There are two Octoballoons and a Dust Hearder. After the door opens, you'll have to cross a section with pieces of hot metal flying by. Dodge the metal. You can see what's coming if you turn your camera. When you get to the other side, hit the blue switch. Pause the lava once it's drained. Go through the pit to the other side of the fense. Once again cross the hot metal section, and defeat the Octoballoon at the other side. The next room is filled with ocupational hazards, including two Spikers, a Spin Dragon, and a Slime Robot. On round 8, all of the Slime Robots have a pair of orbs circling them. Also, there is a lightning trap. It shoots lightning between 2 targets. It will always shot between the center one and another one, and lightning never strikes the same place twice in a row. After you beat the enemies, hit the target that's floating over the lava. This will raise a set of gears you can jump across. Dodge the fireballs as you cross over the lava, or use a pause. At the corner of that platform, there's a small button. This will stop the gears near it so you can cross the lava to the next section. The next platform has bombs everywhere. Be careful as you cross, and stay away from the lava and other places the bombs will hit and explode. You can use a pause to make this eaisier. There are two Octoballoons here. Cross the pipes to get to the platform with the exit. After you beat the Flame Lizard and the Spin Dragon, you'll be able to complete the stage. Round 8 Stage 2: Difficulty - ***** S+ time - ? (4:54:73 = S+) A+ time - ? Monsters - 13 Cat Medals - Gold - Go to the right of where you appear. Jump onto the large machine with the fires on it (there is a low point you can jump onto on the left side). Use a flame sweeper to put out the fires, then take the metal. Silver - Near the Slime Robot, you'll see a large pit of lava with two platforms on the ends of long metal arms. Sweep the flame blocking your way. Then pause the platform near the medal. Jump over and get it. Red - Very near the silver medal. You can get this one by coming across the lava pit using a slow, or you can climb the gears in front of it on the platform with the Slime Robot. Walkthrough - As soon as you appear, you'll be sharing the room with a Spiker and a Spin Dragon. Defeat them with the surrounding trash. Cross the big gear to the other side of the lava. The next room is crazy, with two Dust Hearders and three Octoballoons. After you clear them out, have fun collecting time crystals. Then hit the blue switch in the corner. A set of shifting metal plates will appear, moving across the surface of the lava. Use those to get to the small platform on the other side. Once you go past the line of gold crystals, a Tom-Tom mini-boss will come up. Beat him with three quick shots. As you go up the next series of steps, watch out for fireballs. hit the blue switch to stop the gear in front of you. Jump onto that gear, then onto the one connected to it, and finally onto the platform. When you reach the top, there is a Slime Robot waiting for you. Take him out. Once you defeat him, turn around. There's a large gear to your right on the wall. Jump onto that. Jump off right before it crushes you between another gear. Jump onto that one, and use a time command so you can cross. When you cross, your time command should still be affecting the Octoballoon and the Spin Dragon that you come across. Kill them. Then cross back the previous platform. You can do this several ways. 1) Cross the lava pit using a slow command so you can travel on the platform while dodging the other arm. 2) Use a pause to stop the gears below, get up next to the lava, then jump the large gears below, then back onto the platform. This is the fastest way. 3) Go onto the gears you used to get to this platform, then use a rewind to make the larger one take you back. I can't recomment this one too much. Once you're here, get on the large gear like you used to get to the Spin Dragon and the Octoballoon. This time, jump to the side and away from the gear so you land on a platform. You shouldn't have any trouble beating the Flame Lizard, as you will have the cover from the large pipe running across the platform. Cross the gears onto the next platform. A Slime Robot and another Flame Lizard are waiting there. This one also has a lightning trap. Once you beat them, cross the last bridge to the exit. Round 8 Stage 3: Difficulty - ***** S+ time - ? (5:42:53 = S+) A+ time - ? Monsters - 11 Cat Medals - Gold - Hard to miss this one. It's on the first gear you have to cross. Red - After the room with all of the swinging blades, on the large gear to cross the lava, pause it and grab the medal off it's shaft. It's really narrow, so be careful. Make sure time doesn't start with you still on the shaft. Silver - After the Flame Lizard, it's on the gears leading to the next section. Walkthrough - If you can make it through the first part without using a pause, you are a Blinx god. Gather the trash around you, then use a pause to stop all of the rolling bombs. Once you get across, jump high into the air and take out the two Octoballoons floating just above the explosions. After you defeat them you need to cross the lava. The only way across is a large gear. Either pause it or use a record to cross it and hit the blue switch on the other side. There is a Dust Hearder and three purple Spikers. Be extremely careful if you decide to take them all on at once. There are tons of swinging blades, so that adds to your trouble. Remember, time commands are there to help you in tight times. After you defeat them, you'll need to climb to the higher level. Use the gears on the far side of that platform. I prefere to pause them first. When you reach the top, you'll find a platform with areas where the floor will fall out under you. There's also a Flame Lizard and a Spin Dragon there. Take out the Spin Dragon first, but keep moving so you don't get hit by a fireball. At the other end, you'll see a series of gears, one of which has huge blades. Again, pause the gears or use a record to cross and hit the switch. This platform has a Slime Robot and a lightning trap. Cross the series of gears. You don't really need time commands to cross this one. Don't miss the Octoballoon in the middle. At the end of the path of gears, you'll run into another Slime Robot. Destroy him. Finally, you'll see a huge lever made from hot metal. Use a record and jump onto it. This will lean it toward you, and pull the metal platform to you. Jump over it and run onto the other side. Now when you return to real time, wait for the platform to slide over, jump onto it, then wait for the recording to make it slide to the other side. The final exit is on a platform covered with gold. Round 8 Boss: Difficulty - **** S+ time - ? (2:27:30 = S+) A+ time - ? (4:20:93 = A+)(5:40:86 = B+) Monster - Red Trash Robot Cat Medals - None Walkthrough - He won't be quite as easy as the first Trash Robot. This time when he rolls at you, he'll curve to adjust to you. You'll need to double jump at the last second to avoid his attack. When he's in human form, this is when he's vulnerable. If you let him jump, a bomb will drop toward you and a section of the floor will drop out. Then he'll drop three slime balls, which take one hit each. I personally let him jump, shoot him and sweep the bomb, and use the bomb to take out all three blobs in one shot. He'll start making the rings shift and move in different directions. He's invincible as long as there are blobs, so focus on them first. After he's taken heavy damage, parts of the inner or outer ring will sink below the lava, so stay on the middle ring until you know which one is safe. Also, one technique I found useful is to use a record to take out the blobs. This saves on ammo and lets you focus on the main body in real time. =============================================================================== Round 9: Momentopolis Round 9 Boss: Difficulty - **** S+ time - ? A+ time - ? Monster - Multiple, Time Demon Cat Medals - None Walkthrough - Neat animation of Blinx chasing the Tom-Toms carrying the princess. Suddenly they all freeze, and all the time crystals merge into a huge time monster. With a flash of light, everything rewinds. When you gain control, you are fighting against Boss 5, the giant Dust Hearder with 2 staves. (5 hits) Then it fastforwards to Boss 7, the giant Ice Molegon (7 hits, I think). Then rewinds again to Boss 6, the Giant Keropper. Time crystals are lined up in 4s, so use this time to grab a couple retries and any other controls you may feel like you need. Fast forward to *gasp* Round 8, the Red Slime Robot. If at any point you feel like a battle is not going well, use the restart stage command to go back to the beggining of that boss. That way you don't have to start from the first boss again. Also, since the final boss will take all your time commands, don't hold back. Use them freely. After you defeat them, you will go to the Level 9 shop. Refill your life here. Also, you can change your sweeper, buy some cloths, or buy ammo for your sweeper should you choose. This is the boss you saw in the animation. He looks like a floating rock with arms and horns, and a clock instead of a face. I origionally named him Cheap *** *****, but I decided Time Demon is more apropriate. Phase 1) In this phase, he'll use the time commands Fast Forward, and Slow. Also, he will drop bombs, shoot lightning at the bombs to set off a reaction, or shoot lightning in 3 directions. Grab lots of Pauses, and start collecting time commands, at least one of each. Don't worry about getting them all now, just keep an eye out for the chance. This boss is vulnerable when he is dropping bombs. Jump and shoot a bomb while he is dropping his. Three hits and go on to the next phase. Phase 2) The boss create an identicle image of himself. He can use Pause now. He now drops bombs and ice bombs. Another attack is for both parts to pound the ground, creating a shock wave and destroying the bombs. Also, the will grab either side of the areana, and shake off all the bombs. When they use Pause, time your jump so they will freeze you in the air. If they use Slow, jump early so you can dodge the shock wave. When they drop bombs, shoot a bomb at each part in quick succession to hit both before the clock closes. Try to have at least 4 of the 5 time commands by the end of this section. You will need to get the double hit three times. Phase 3) The clock will start to glow. Time crystals are abundant. You need to use each time command once. He will absorb the time command and it will damage him. He will suck up everything near you, then shoot back bombs. Also his main attack is to try to chop you with his huge hand. After using all five time commands, his shell will shatter. Don't use a time command when his mouth is open, 'cause it won't hit his armor if you do. Phase 4) He'll charge you, so double jump to the side, then hit him with a bomb. You can consider this boss officially owned. Ending) Sorry, but I'm not one for spoilers. Besides, with this FAQ in hand, you should be able to get the ending yourself. Good luck ^_^ But wait until the credit roll has finished. Trust me. XI - Cool Stuff Ok, some of this stuff is actually useful, some of it is just interesing. - After hitting pause, jump into some water. The water will leave a trail where you walked. - You are invinsible while in fast forward. Take advantage of this. But if you get hit, you will be thrown back into normal time. - Use rewind to go upstream with ease. - Watch out for Tom-Toms coming out of time portals. Hit them once and they will leave you alone. - Blue Springs will not launch you when in pause mode. During this time, you can use them as ordinary platforms. - Most garbage can be thrown against a wall and stood on. Use this to reach high places. Bombs and super bombs explode, 16 ton weights shatter, so can't be used this way, explosive barrels explode, and spike bullets kill you if you touch them. - Don't confuse orange pyramids for gold. Gold flashes between orange and black, where as the time crystal has flashes between orange, yellow, and white. - Your sweeper will sweep up the closest trash in the direction you point. It will suck up trash before gold/crystals, even if the gold/crystal is closer. - Blinx puts on his goggles whenever he uses his sweeper. You can make him put on his goggles and draw his sweeper by pushing Y, or make him put it away by pushing Y. - Buttons will not press while using time controls. - At max, you can hold 10 pieces of trash, 10 time controls, and 9 retries. - If you have good trash you want to hold onto until the end of the level, either shoot out all the trash you have and then take the valuable trash (then suck up the trash for fighting), or suck up trash until the valuable is at the beginning of the queue (will be shot last). - On your way out of shop 9, the shop keeper will say "Good Luck, Blinx" instead of her normal "Have a nice day." - The box says over 35 levels, but if there are only 8 worlds + the final boss, that's a total of 33 levels. I have confirmed the "4th Dimention" level. This level is mentioned in the Blinx page of Xbox.com. I'll continue earning S+ ranks to try to unlock this level. - Trash shot while in record mode does not get used. That means you can make twice as many shots with the same amount of trash. - When you unpause (from the pause menu), if you hit "Resume game" with the A button, you will jump (which may or may not be bad.) To avoid this, unpause by pressing start on "Resume game" - When you find a gate that closes once you get off the switch, you can keep it open by 1) use a record to record yourself standing on the button. 2) hit the button until the gate is open, run to the gate, then rewind so the gate opens again. 3) hit the button, then use a pause while the gate is open. 4) hit the button, then use a slow and run through before it can close. - In Everfreeze, instead of standing still like normal, Blinx will wrap his arms around himself when in neutral position. - Increase your valuable treasure! At the end of the level, use a record, then shoot it all out. When normal time resumes, suck up the pieces you want. You can have doubles of all your most valueable treasure. I used this for my clock balls while saving up for the ultimate sweeper. - In the videos, Blinx is always wearing the Blue Set, even if you are using another set. - Some of the medal I put that you have to jump out then back to safty, you can get by sweeping them. If you are not close enough, it will drop down. If it does, only a retry will restore it if it's over space. (In other words, jump off the edge and die.) You cannot collect a medal in record mode.
