Mission 5 is the first "Level Up Your Ant" mission. I was able to level one ant by repeatedly dropping it in water, but the game did not register it for this mission. I have not been able to level an ant with the magnifying glass. Any tips?
You have to use the finger tool to pin an ant down, then hold B while you're holding A to squish the little guy to within an inch of his life. Make sure he doesn't run out of HP. My guess is they're using the logic, "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger".
You wouldn't be offended unless it was true. MKWii Thomas 5456-2528-4286
