I am at the punch bowl I guess it's called with the 2 cheerleaders..what's the clue to staying centered on the target? With each jump I'm off the yellow target area and can't get back on fast enough and get set to face the new thing to blow up.
any suggestions??

I loved the mine fields and the bouncing nets.. happydance

Also, I can't figure out how to start a new game.
I wanted to start over since my controls are a bit better now or I should say I'm a bit better at the controls.

And...for those that didn't know..you can save at any time. There are spots that are automatic for you, when you complete a task, that way, if you're really into the game, you won't have to worry about forgetting to save and having to start over if you mess up the next section..
Got the kid through the mind fields, and I loved the flag pole idea, very good!

Punch Bowl? Am I missing something? I remember my encounter with the cheerleaders up on that platform thingie. I was cracking up making them do more cheers for Raz. lol They were too cutez! Did you do the punch game yet? laugh

Oh! Centered on what target? I must have passed that up. Cause I dont remember having to stay centerd on any target except for the one to start the punch game, and once it starts you dont need to be on the target anymore.

You have to jump and then hit it kind of at the same time - this gives you a power punch.

To start a new game use the space bar - not the game pad (well, I couldn't figure it out on a gamepad), have Raz run over the brain and there will be 3 doors - New, etc.

I kept running through the mine fields too fast and kept blowing up. This first level is a great place to practice all the moves you're going to need to use later on.

Sorry Johnboy, that area where the cheerleaders are..you jump and punch..I didn't know I should be running at the target guys, thought I had to stand on the yellow spot and I not getting anywhere fast with that.

Kim,
many thanks for knowing what I meant..
and for letting me know how to start a new game.
It's the little things I am finding difficult..

Ingie laugh

Edit Here: Thanks Kim, I got through the area, much easier than what I was trying to do, took a little trip with the transport guy, is he cute or what? Now I'm dodging bullets..from some kind of gun, knocking down walls as I go..this game is cute..

When I first started the game and this part I didn't realize that you could punch objects for arrowheads and health. In the area you are currently in you can punch the snowmen and clumps of snow to get objects. It's also funny to try talking to the animals like the bunnies in this area.

I just went through the brain tumbler experience in Sashas underground lab. I met up with a creature and I was pulled back into the lab by Sasha. I asked how to kill it and was told I need some sort of permit from general somebody to continue on that quest and must say Ive been lost since then. I obviously need to board the tram and backtrack to find the general to get the permit. I dont remember who he is or where he is. If hes the guy with the pear shaped head in the beginning of the game at the camp, which is who I thought it was, I saw him and he said nothing about a permit. lol
Kim, A clue please. I am really trying not to use the WT.

Ingie, How many tries did it take you to get through that punch game?

Well I have to tell you all..this game has got me hooked.
I played it this morning and didn't want to stop.
Oh Johnboy, that punch thing..until Kim said I could walk toward the things popping up I was horrible. I kept thinking I had to jump back on the circle I did that over and over and over..came on here, posted help please. Got the answer went back and about 5 or 6 tries.
I started over on another game..Realized I went through the kids cabin area too fast, missed a lot.
Found a bunch of arrowheads, PSI cards and a lot of stuff to prepare for what's ahead like the bouncing nets-don't you love those things? and
swinging on a limb...overhearing conversations,
and opening the "johnny" door..
Anyway, I went on back in the brain of the warts..what a toad he is..and was able to do much better..got the figments this time, did the punch in 2 tries..went through the gunfire and got the snowmen..and clumps for the mental health..lots of it.
I stopped at the pole swinging wall. Didn't have a bit of problem first time, this time..can't figure it out so I stopped for a bit.
This game is addicting..and darn cute.
I love the little girl with the nightmares..
and I got the little boy through the minefield this time..last time I didn't think I'd ever get him there.
It really helped just taking my time in the camp area before heading into the brain.
Know Kim will send you the help you need..
I'll catch up at some point, maybe

OK I got the permit. I am in the shooting gallery. Sasha keeps telling me I am a good shooter but I am not using my mental lock. I cant figure out what the heck he is talking about. So I have to keep starting over. Kim? Where are you?

Ingie Did you get to the tight ropes yet? lol those were fun! And how about the rails? rotfl

OK I got stuck there also, you need to change direction by pressing the "f" key. I think its the "f" key. And then you should swing in the right direction.

lol

Do you find the camera angles annoying at times. I mean like objects getting in the way of your view? I need to fool with the camera angles and see if it can be adjusted.

Yes I do find it annoying, but I made it worse and put it back to default.

f key, well now it had to be a mistake the first flip through then cause I went swinging up that wall like regular monkey.. slapforehead ...my reflexes are so slow..but actually the more I am playing the better I am getting some things are coming along really better than I thought. I don't like it though when I have to run and can't angle Raz right..camera thing I know..I may fiddle again with it..but I really was in trouble last time.
But it does get tiring to have an old tire or piece of junk in my line of sight. mad

johnboy - I'm using a gamepad so it might be different but I think Sasha is talking about locking on to your target before shooting at it - this makes it a lot easier to hit them. Targeting with mental focus - hold down the left shift key while shooting.

I guess you guys play at night so I will try to check the boards at night - I usually play in the afternoon when my daughter is napping (I am so lucky - she is almost three and still takes a really long nap).

I loved riding the rails and the little sparks that come up behind Raz. The game does make me a little dizzy and I feel like I am always going to be falling off the edge.

And I think the camera is the weakest part of the game - often I'm trying to line myself up and an object, usually behind me, blocks my view.

Some advice - master the fast shooting and the pole and rope swinging, etc. because it gets a lot harder later in the game.
