View Full Version : Diving for Treasure exploit / easy way

I just noticed that you can go behind the spiky things in the PotC survival challenge: the octopus in the background is grabbable xD so, if you're having an hard time dodging the, spikes just go near the octopus and grab it to escape in the background.

Too bad most of us already have the trophy ;) have fun.

haha wow that's pretty fail-ish XD

I'll try to use that trick when trying to get that highscore!

This, coupled with the fact that you don't need to actually destroy any british ships in the boss fight, makes two easy ways to beat levels. :grr:

That kinda sucks.

While it would be nice to know these, I'd rather do it the old school way. It's much more fun like that.

I don't view it so much as an exploit then as a strategy. You still need to get the air bubbles, and it's harder to get multipliers when you can't move, and as the minigame goes on it gets a lot harder so it's harder to get multipliers later on and you'd need to evade a ton of things to get air bubbles... So it seems more like a strategy to quickly evading spike things then anything.

I agree with RS. This helps you survive, but it doesn't help you score.

I'm getting a little bit annoyed with the spikes on this. It's quite dark so I often touch a spike by accident when I think I've left enough room. If this was a lighter level it would be a lot easier to see where they start/finish

interesting.... such small things can make a huge diffrence...

Its waaaaay easier with two players as well: you end up with massive multipliers.
