View Full Version : "The Great Escape" prize bubble issue (tiny spoiler I guess if that matters)

There's this one prize bubble in the level "The Great Escape" that I just can't get for the life of me. I'll try to explain which one it is:

It's in the Oddsock section of the level; it's a little bit after the enemy that swings a wall back and forth. So when you get to it, there should be an enemy with a spiked wall on its left side, and a wall that you use to get high enough to jump on its brain. The prize bubble is just above the brain, and you supposedly have to bounce on the brain to gain enough distance to grab the bubble.

Upon attempting to ace the level, I have had over 20 attempts and still have not been able to reach it.

So am I missing a technique or something? Or is this a thing that's been happening with other people as well?

Try to avoid the brain and jump off the enemy itself, It's a real pain, but doable.

It should be a 4 second count for the cycle of the enemy switching sides. So when it hit's the left side wait 3.5 seconds roughly. do your jump off of his wall, rebound off of the other, slide for a second if you have to, and then jump. That's how I did it. I'm done the game now, and aced it all. Best of luck to you and your completion! :D

I tried doing what you said, then I ended up doing what lve_msg suggested. Thanks to the both of you :D

Yeah, I got mine bouncing off of the brain. :p

This method is definitely the easiest, but there's more to it. It's about when and where you jump for the bubble. For anyone struggling with this, here's a bit more detail on what to do.

As the enemy moves screen right, jump over the gap. When he approaches you, jump up onto his apparatus with the spikes attached and wait there. You'll be sitting on top of his spike thing, sort of nuzzled into his chest. Let him return screen right (you can wait there as long as you like really). The time to jump is when he's approaching the bubble from screen right, travelling to the left side of the screen. You want to jump about a half inch to an inch on your screen before he gets to the bubble. Jump up and left to grab the bubble.

This is far easier than trying to jump off the wall.

Has anybody been able to get the two bubbles with Toggle when you're trying to stay ahead of the laser gate? They're at the top of a column and it seems you should be able to just switch from big toggle to little toggle to launch up there but I never get enough height, get stuck and die. Is there a trick to it that I'm not getting?

Switching is how I did it. Had to go all the way down with big Toggle.

It's a right pain in the keister, buddy. It took me numerous attempts but I finally nailed it. Like Oatmeal said, you just switch. The attempt I finally got it on I actually landed on the edge where the hard surface meets the material, then jumped onto that to grab the bubbles from there. You could try for that little edge as your focus point. Might help slightly knowing the pressure is on to get that one tiny spot.

Good luck!

Ah that bubble. Yeah it's kinda a pain to get. If I remember correctly, you have to time your jump when the enemy is moving backwards so that you'll bounce a little bit closer than usual to grab the bubble. That's how I got it.

I'm still missing three prize bubbles and I just went through the level slowly to try and find them. They are #2, #46, and #59. I'm guessing they're in a group, hidden somewhere, but I don't know how to find them. Can anyone help me out?

Edit: Nevermind, I found it! There's a small hole at the end of the green material that little toggle runs along in the first underwater section.

Thanks, Ryuhza! I looked and looked but couldn't find that!

I'm still missing the one second from the top, second from the left. From Ryuhza's screenshot, it looks like it might be a sticker of a button or some other dark round outline sticker.

I for the life of me can't find prize 58 I've ran it over and over and I can't find that single prize bubble

I finally found the last bubble. Had to watch this video:

the one I'd missed was in Swoop's section with the chasing laser wall: you go under one of the laser walls and have to fly all the way to the top.
