I think that puzzle had me stuck for a good 10 minutes or so the first time I played...

I even tried a few sideways jumps onto those gear-shaped platforms in the distance...which would have worked fine if there wasn't an

johnboy - have you jumped to the top yet? I found doing a double jump made me go higher if I hit jump and then hit jump again while I was in the air. And I don't quite remember but can you hit the target without being at the top of the platform?

inge - I decided early on in the game if I couldn't figure out what to do next to just go ahead and punch something smile

I reached the last battle yesterday but a message came up that said 'autosaving - point of no return' so I decided to stop and go back and try to collect all the psi cards and scavenger hunt items that I hadn't done already. I'm not sure if I can go back into the brain tumbler and do the previous sections to find all the figments, etc once you do the last past of the game so I am going to try that as well.

Yes I made it to the top and slided down the rail to the next platform and two of those mad men in suits were waiting for me and zapped me. lol I have not seen the target yet. I know on the first two I was able to shoot the target from a distance. I was so curious to see what was up there I forgot to look for the target. Wish I had more than one life so that the game would not have to keep resetting. Did you ever find out anything about the cheats and how do I get more lives?

kw, I know from testing it that after the "point of no return" section of the game, you can't return to the "real world". Ever.

You can, however, still access the entire mental world, including the brain tumbler.

Thanks! That's good to know. I've done everything I need to do in the "real world" so I can do the end and still go back to the brain tumbler after I've finished? I'm ready to do the end but I'm being obsessive about cleaning up - I find it unlikely, however, that I am going to find every figment.

You should be able to visit any mental world, collect figments and so on. You can even redeem psi cards/figments/etc. near the end of the game (without psi cores, oddly enough).

Just don't expect to be able to return to the campgrounds, collect or redeem scavenger hunt items, or buy equipment/dream fluffs/etc. I learned that the hard way...

I just got a message to use psi blaster. I did not know what to do. Can anyone explain this to me?

Psi Blast is what you've been shooting with - maental focus is what you use to target when you are shooting.

OK, I have been using the psi blaster throughout the game then. I wonder why all of a sudden I received this message in the third part of the shooting gallery and never got the message ever before? I was using something and I did not even know what it is called. Which is par. lol
There is just so much to do and gather in this game I am probably missing a lot of necessary and fun things to do. woozy

You probably got the message because you were close to the target and the game was giving you a hint.

I finished last night and thought the last section of the game was hard.

Overall I loved it! Some levels I liked less than others but each level was so different and imaginative (weird too) and I really liked the graphics. I generally don't play this type of game so that says something I guess.

I also really liked that you can exit a level at any time (until the end) and go back to the campgrounds. So, if you are stuck or frustrated you can go work on the scavenger hunt and collect psi cards until you are ready to go back - this helped me never truly feel stuck.

I thought the end was overly hard compared to the rest of the game. All along the game kind of holds your hand and gives you hints while usually giving you ample time to plan your strategy. And then - boom - you are in a mad dash at the finish. I did the ending over and over and over until I started to hate it and then became obsessed and couldn't stop until I got it.

Anyway, I think it's a great game but I'm not changing my avatar from Jade to Raz smile

OK I just completed, or I thought I completed all four levels of sashas shooting gallery. After completing the fourth stage I was faced with a boss, Well needless to say I was killed immediately. When I went to restart it put me back at stage four to do all over again. This just isnt fair. Why do they design these games like this? It really tees me off. I just dont see why it could not restart with the boss. Sometimes I think designers do these things deliberately to annoy us. Anyway, kwbridge, how do I defeat the boss?

JohnBoy, if you save at the beginning of the boss battle, you can reload from your save point and start there again, rather than having to redo the whole level.

As for beating the boss, this one's tricky:

You need to start by finding its "power sources" and destroying them all. Until you do so, any damage you do is repaired.

Also note that you can use the "bacon" item to get hints about how to defeat a boss.

Hey Johnboy: Please remember me if you want to sell it later. Cool


And, in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.

Got frustrated last night and quit. I did not feel up to having to do stage four again.Although I thought it was easier than stage three. Hopefully I will get past this this weekend.

Hi Stevo, I will probably be keeping this one. Its definitely replayable. There is so much to collect and do and see.
