View Full Version : Correction: this trick does NOT get the 4x prize

[CORRECTION]: What I had thought were the prizes for the 4x section are actually the prizes that you get if you shine your flashlight on the popcorn sign below. By the time you have the boost boots, you should already have the flashlight so this trick really doesn't do anything except prove that I can't spot those flashlight panels ;)

First, you will need the boost boots. In Manglewood cross the bridge leading out of the Manglewood and use the boost boots to hop up the ledge next to the camera (where you used Oddsock to ascend your first time through). Use the boost boots to jump up on top of the camera to the left. Now use the boost boots to jump straight up and slightly to the left. You should see floating popcorn bits along with four prize bubbles you can't reach (actually, if you aim just right, you can reach the bottom two but nevermind that for now). If you hit near the popcorn you will become stuck and unable to move. Your boost boots can't help you because you have to hit the ground to recharge but here's the trick: if you switch to another powerup and then switch back, you'll find that your boots are recharged. Now you can boost into the bubbles or above them (you'll fall and get stuck just above them). Repeat the boost recharge trick as necessary and get those bubbles!

Nice find buddy! Then again, this game is so broken I can't say I'm surprised. I've fallen through so many levels now, and am missing every single sticker switch sticker reward that it's truly pathetic and makes me wonder if anyone actually tested these levels or the content.

I guess you're on PS4 now huh? I may get there eventually, but not a fan of pay to play schemes... especially when the opposite was used as a bragging point for Sony. Good to see you're still around man.

You too. I'm loving the game on the PS4 and I seem to be luckier than some with the glitches, though I'm still in the collect phase and haven't really done much poppit-searching to see if I'm missing anything.

Blastroid, thanks for making the vid. I thought about it but I'm too lazy and wanted to keep playing but I couldn't not fire off a quick tip to everybody else who can't get 4 players together (PS4 controllers are expensive and so is ps+).

Funny thing is I already had the 4x bubbles and did not know it. I think my friend must of stumbled onto that location while I was not looking and did not tell me. He broke so many levels with those darn Boost Boots.

Ah, clever. You managed to hit piece of sticker panel with a broadcast chip that is locking those pieces of popcorn in place. I don't think those are 4 player prizes, though. They are related to the popcorn image somehow... ;)

EDIT: I can't get the spoiler tag to work, beware spoilers
They are for








using the Illuminator on the popcorn. The 4x thing is an entire level where you play all 4 characters at once.

When collecting the flashlight prizes the 4 prize bubbles remain so they are not related.

That^^

The 4x talking guy is right below that spot, and I guess the sensor is to wide and activates there.

If they're not the 4x, then I don't know what else they could be. The only thing I haven't done in Manglewood is the 4x section (don't have 4 controllers and haven't purchased ps+ yet), and when I got those prizes, the rooster crowed, so there isn't anything left in the level that could go to the 4x.

And yeah, I figured it was a sticker panel thing or something. It was just a lucky discovery while I was stuck that cycling powerups recharged the boost boots. Before figuring that out, I'd managed to snag the two bubbles at the bottom but couldn't reach the ones on top and had to pop myself after every attempt when I'd get stuck.

[edit] Figured it out and edited first post. Sorry about the confusion.

I went to do that a few minutes ago. I got to the popcorn painting and decided to shine the light on it first. Turns out I had accidentally gotten the 4x prize bubbles somehow already. I have no idea how that happened, but once I got the ones from the painting, I heard a rooster crow, and I was at 100%.

It is not related to the hub prizes.

What a shame, that 4x level will continue to mock me and my 3 non-existent friends.
