rotfl Have pushed that button, thought that was what opened the secret passageway on the other side of the room. Will look around to see what else opens up.

Hi Acornia...........Well, you may see it as a "secret passageway," LOL wink not sure...... but the rim is in that little alcove over to the right after you push the button under the lizard picture. Its just a closed in little space and no outlet there to go elsewhere. I thought the passageway was found after you use the smasher on the urn in the room with the fire burning.

Okay, I'm stuck. frown

I'm past the Hook-Handed Man and the lengthy hunt for the "reptiles" out in the gardens. Now I am facing the Bald Headed Man again with a new supply of bees.

I'd be most grateful for a tip or so on how to shellac this guy! LOL wink I've followed the ammo and ably manage to hold him off for long periods of time with refreshers from the golden hearts and picking up more ammo. But, maybe I don't understand what needs to be done here to take him out permanently and keep him from taking me out. I always run out of health.

My lack of action experience shows here, I think. frown

Get to knock him out four times. I just run into whatever he has dropped from being stunned and then that becomes the next weapon to use against him. At the end have to be close enough to use the smasher on him. Just fire rapidly and get close--not into that strafing. Also start and keep firing even while he is down from being stunned.

Thanks a bunch, Acornia...that really helps. I keep knocking him out and getting more ammo to use on him, but haven't been able to persevere through to four times.

I've tried both the strafing approach and up close and personal, so will stick with the later. So, you have to take him down with all of the four ammos shown and then the smasher. Okay...... praise thanks, again! I hope the next bad guy encounter isn't any more difficult than this one. We're getting seriously close to UN fun here.....LOL wink

Just keep firing that left mouse button as fast as you can while getting closer, think he only got in a couple of shots with me and that was the first time around. Am at my problem part in this game, jumping, jumping, and jumping on moving objects.

Funny how an action requirement can be easier for one person than another. frown I seem to be pretty agile about jumping onto moving objects, but fighting these bullies is a different story. wink Looks like I was on the right track to start with though, by charging right up and fighting in close.

Practice, practice, practice..........LOL
Thanx again, Acornia.

My problem has as much to do with slow reflexes as with the way I see. Have a lazy eye so only look out of one at a time. Makes for poor depth perception especially as each eye sees an item as a different size. So just pick a way that is easier for me. Later on will probably have to do some dodging and strafing but for as long as this works will use it. Just wish could save any time wanted. Did get through the jumps. Still get a laugh from the time when was trying to get a character to jump a gap in a bridge and landed on the rope--tightroped walked to the end of the bridge and then jumped off.

Good to hear you made it past the jumps! You surely seem able to overcome the vision handicap without much problem. smile

I tried the fighting in close again with the bald henchman and he still seems able to zap me really quickly. Am I missing something, or is this just the breaks, meaning I just need to suck it up? LOL wink

Make sure that the ammo you're using is affecting him. Have to change it time every time. While he is stunned, can try a different one and see if it works. Make sure you're firing as fast as you can. Usually, get about five or six shots to their one shot. Am used to it--only bothers me when I'm tired. Watch your health meter and get hearts as needed. Duck out of the room or around a corner if you need to regroup.

Thanks, Acornia..... praise

I will take your good and most appreciated advice when I get the time and the gumpshin (how do you spell that, anyway?) to get back in there and do the deed with that nasty bad guy. LOL
