This is probably the most irritating and most poorly designed level in the game. For those of you who have a Vita, it's what Flower Pop is to LBPV. It's so glitchy that I get stuck on buildings and can't move until the time runs out. The trucks constantly drop mines that make it impossible to catch anything.

So is anyone else having a difficult time with this level? I'm trying to get 40 kills but it's just not working.

Oh, and it's on the Progress Emporium world if you're wondering.

Haha I was just swearing profusely at struggling with this last night. Yeah, it's a little annoying. It took me a good dozen tries or so but I finally managed 40 kills... and a pretty good head start on some carpal tunnel syndrome as well I think.

A modest part of the level is luck. If the trucks don't happen to spawn near you, you're screwed. Mostly though, it's all about not getting yourself stuck. The best way to avoid this is to never make a U turn and, whenever possible, stay on the wider streets.

What finally ended up working for me was going up and down one of the wider boulevards repeatedly. This did a few different things for me. First, it's a good place to not get stuck in. Second, there weren't many mines there because I was actively clearing them off (and keeping the trucks from dropping more). Third, when you're at one end of the boulevard the trucks will wander into the other end because you're far enough away. Head back down and there will often be a truck nearby for you to blow up. Just keep at it and you'll eventually get it - it's not half as bad as Flower Pop, that's for sure.

Oh, and shoot a lot. A LOT. :hatsack:

Thanks Taffey. :) I took your advice and stayed in the wide streets, it worked! Just took a few tries... Then I had to move on to the horrid level known as Traffic Jam. :frightened: Thank heavens all of the mini-games are completed now.

yeah when i did this i got stuck a few times and was shall we say... less than patient with it... but i just marched up and down the wide north-south street and had no trouble stomping on enough trucks.

there is a really easy way to beat this (i got 60 kills)
stay on the long north to south straight road that is on the right side of the map one away from the road that follows the edge. If you stay on this road you will be able to pick off multiple trucks as they drive across the bottom and top of the map, simply drive up and down the road until one drives nearby and pick it off!

Yeah this one is a pain in the tail. Interestingly, I used the exact same strategy when I beat it a few weeks ago. I stayed along the bottom and managed to score almost 50 hits total. Trying to go through the entire arena just wasn't working out. As far as my game is concerned, I noticed more trucks respawning along the top and bottom of the arena anyway.
