    Some Tidbits About LittleBigPlanet and This FAQ
    ===============================================================
    
    
    LittleBigPlanet is a platformer.  You run and jump and move left and right, and
    up and down.  Seems simple enough, I guess.  Oh, but it's much more than just a
    platformer.  LittleBigPlanet is a game about creating platformers, and sharing
    experiences with the rest of the world.  This game is about creating anything
    your mind can come up with given the vast array of tools provided.
    
    Give a person some duct tape and he/she can build a couch.
    
    Give a person LittleBigPlanet and he/she can build worlds.
    
    
    THIS FAQ
    ---------------
    This FAQ covers mainly the single player portion of this game and may expand in
    the future.  This portion of the game really wasn't Media Molecule's focus, but
    they did an amazing job on it and some attention should be paid to it because
    so far the single player levels are still the most polished and impressive
    levels that I've seen in the game.  That's not to knock the user-created
    levels, LBP is still new and time is required for for the creative minds out
    there to surpass people who have had the game in their hands for many more
    months.
    
    
    ALL VIDEOS
    ---------------
    There are videos available on YouTube that I have made, demonstrating how to
    get every single item possible on your first play through of the levels while
    playing single player.  Multiplayer portions of the levels are not played
    through, but are pointed out.

    ===============================================================
    Section I. The Basics
    ===============================================================
    
    ----------------------------------
    i. The Premise
    ----------------------------------
    
    This game takes place on a dreamy Earth, where the Sackboys and Sackgirls in
    the dreams of people around the world meet up to play, create, and share.  You,
    the players, are in control of these Sackboys and Sackgirls.  Your hub in this
    dream world is called the Pod where you can play, create, and share with people
    dreaming around the world.
    
    
    ----------------------------------
    ii. Controls and Options
    ----------------------------------
    
    
    GENERAL CONTROLS
    ------------------
    Left Stick - Move your Sackboy around, the more you tilt the stick, the faster
                 your Sackboy will move, from creeping along to outright sprinting.
    
                 Pressing up and down on the left stick will move your Sackboy
                 between layers if they are able to be moved into.
    
    Right Stick - Scale and rotate objects/stickers before placing them
    
    L3 Trigger - Pressing this alternates between the SIXAXIS controlling your
                 Sackperson's head and their pelvis.
    
    R3 Trigger- This is more important in Create mode.  Pressing this will cause
                any object/sticker that you are currently placing to flip.
                Basically the flipped objects are horizontal mirror images of each
                other (flipped around the y-axis).
    
    D-Pad - Emote with your Sackboy, there are three degrees for each emotion which
            go from slight to moderate to severe.  For example, pressing up once
            leads to slight happiness, pressing up again leads to moderate
            happiness, and pressing up a third time will lead to severe happiness.
            Pressing any direction for the fourth time in a row will lead back to
            neutral.
    
            The old and wise Sackyoda says:
                -Up leads to happiness
                -Right leads to Anger
                -Down leads to Sadness
                -Left leads to fright
    
    X Button - Jump!  The longer you hold X, the higher your Sackboy will jump.
               Hold down X to move faster while wearing a jetpack.
               Also used to confirm placement of objects/stickers and menu choices.
    
               Holding down on the left stick and pressing X will cause your
               Sackboy to jump down to a lower level if one is available.
    
    
    O Button - Cancel placing stickers, objects, etc... or going back in menus
               Removes your Sackboy's jetpack if he is wearing one
    
    Square Button - Open Popit menu/ Open Popit info page
    
    Triangle Button - No function outside of Create mode
    
    R1 (Hold) - Grab any grabbable objects, very important!
    
    L1+R1 - Shuffle menu pages
    
    L2 (Hold) + Left Stick - Move your Sackboy's left arm
    
    R2 (Hold) + Right Stick - Move your Sackboy's right arm
    
              Flicking either the left or right stick while moving your Sackboy's
              arms will cause him to slap with his left or right arm.
    
    Start - Access the Start menu
    
    Select - Access the Good Grief! menu (only on user-created levels)
    
    SIXAXIS Motion Control - Move your controller around to control your Sackboy's
                             head, neato!
    
    
    POD CONTROLS
    ---------------
    Same as GENERAL CONTROLS except the Square Button will open the hub controls
    when your Sackboy is standing in front of the controller.
    
    
    GAMEPLAY CONTROLS
    -------------------
    Same as GENERAL CONTROLS
    
    Select - Access the Good Grief! menu (only on user-created levels)
    
    Pressing L1 will bring up the score summary at the top left-hand corner of the
    screen if it disappears due to inactivity.
    
    
    CREATION CONTROLS
    -------------------
    Your Sackboy cannot emote or move his arms around in this mode, he is too busy
    creating!
    
    Left Stick - Move Sackboy around
    Right Stick - Scale and rotate objects/stickers before placing them
    
    D-pad: Up - Pause/unpause the world.  While paused, objects will not be
                affected by the physics of the world, such as gravity.  Pausing is
                useful for manipulating objects that would otherwise be too
                difficult to manipulate while they are in motion or being affected
                by gravity.
    
           Left/Right - Undo/redo your actions, rewinds and fast forwards like a
                        VCR, how quaint.
    
           Down - Allows your Sackboy to hover or to run around like in a normal
                  level.
    
                  Hovering is useful for getting around your level quickly and for
                  adjusting the camera to get a larger or closer view of things.
                  You cannot directly interact with objects in hover mode.
    
                  Running around is useful for testing out various things in your
                  level without changing to Play Mode.
    
    X Button - Confirm placement of objects/stickers and menu choices.
               Hold down X to move faster while in hover mode.
               Jump in non-hover mode.
    
    O Button - Cancel placing stickers, objects, etc... or going back in menus
    
    Square Button - Open Popit menu/ Open Popit info page/Open Tweak menu
    
                    The Tweak option will appear when the cursor is over a
                    tweakable object.
    
    Triangle Button - Delete creations :(
    
    R1 (Hold) - Grab any grabbable objects while in non-hovering mode.
    
    L1+R1 - While placing objects and materials down, these buttons will shuffle
            which layer the object will be placed in, try it out!
    
    R1+R2 - Adjusts and object's thickness.  Will not work with everything.  Try
            it out!
    
    Start - Access the Start menu
    
    Select - No function in Create Mode
    
    
    OPTIONS
    -------------------
    You can access the options via the settings header in the start menu, the
    options are self-explanatory.  Make sure your screen size is appropriate for
    your display.
    
    If you want to turn off rumble, hold the PS button down and use the menu there.
    I prefer to have it off since the controller will rumble around ANY kind of
    hazard, it also saves on battery life.
    
    
    ===============================================================
    Section II. The Gameplay
    ===============================================================
    
    ----------------------------------
    i. Basics of Gameplay
    ----------------------------------
    
    This game is a platformer, which means your goal in each level is to make it
    to the end of the level in one piece.  This is much easier said than done.
    
    This game is based on a points system which is affected by score bubbles
    located throughout the levels and how quickly you finish races (in some
    levels).
    
    Points don't affect anything in single player.  In multiplayer, the player
    with the most points wins the level and has bragging rights.
    
    In the single-player mode, there is a loose story tying together all the
    levels.  You will encounter different characters that ask you and your Sackboy
    to help them out in some way.
    
    
    ----------------------------------
    ii. Score Bubbles
    ----------------------------------
    
    Score bubble - These will add ten points to your total score.
    
    Prize bubble - These will add 50 points to your total score and they are bigger
                   than the average score bubble.
    
                   Prize bubbles contain a prize and are scattered throughout the
                   single player levels.
                   The prizes are new items/objects/materials/decorations for you
                   to use in create mode.  Sometimes there are costume pieces in
                   the prize bubbles.  These costumes can be used to dress up your
                   Sackboy/Sackgirl to your liking.
    
                   On repeat play throughs, prize bubbles will be empty and are
                   just larger score bubbles giving you 50 points each.
    
    Score Combos - When you collect score bubbles in quick succession, you will
                   gain multipliers to the amount added to your score.
    
                   For example, collecting five score bubbles will normally add 50
                   points to your score, but collecting five in quick succession
                   will net a 2x multiplier which means 100 points will be added to
                   your score (50x2=100).
    
                   5 score bubbles in a row = 2x multiplier
                   10 score bubbles in a row = 3x multiplier
                   15 score bubbles in a row = 4x multiplier
                   20 score bubbles in a row = 5x multiplier
                   25 score bubbles in a row = 6x multiplier
                   30 score bubbles in a row = 7x multiplier
                   ...
                   ...
                   ...
                   495 score bubbles in a row = 100x multiplier
    
                   100x multiplier is the maximum multiplier and 1,000,000 points
                   is the maximum total score you can get in a level.
    
                   Score combos end when you don't get a score bubble roughly one
                   second within the previous one.
    
    
    ----------------------------------
    iii. Layers (not lairs)
    ----------------------------------
    
    The levels in LittleBigPlanet are comprised of THREE major layers in the
    zed-axis (z-axis): the back, middle, and front layers.  If you are confused
    about axes, the x-axis represents the horizontal (left and right) movement, the
    y-axis represents the vertical (up and down) movement, and the mysterious
    zed-axis represents the DEPTH movement.  This means that the game is somewhere
    between a 2-D and 3-D platformer, perhaps an "uber 2-d platformer" since you
    can do more than just move left, right, up, and down.
    
    The game will automatically detect which layer your Sackboy will end up in
    during general gameplay when you jump and there are multiple layers to choose
    from.  This mechanic works out most of the time and you don't notice it, but it
    is frustrating when you don't want to move between layers.  It is something you
    and your Sackboy will have to learn to adapt to.
    
    If you want your Sackboy to move to a higher platform that is in a layer behind
    you, you'll have to jump onto it, but your Sackboy will only land on that
    platform if his feet can clear the ground, so jump high!  You can test this out
    in the Pod, try jumping on the shoulder buttons of the controller while
    standing in front of it.  Start off with small hops, and work your way up to
    higher jumps.
    
    Score bubbles will be touched no matter what layer your Sackboy is in, as long
    as he runs into them on the screen in some fashion.
    
    
    ----------------------------------
    iv. The Popit Menu
    ----------------------------------
    
    A Sackboy should never leave home without his Popit menu, it is vitally
    important!
    
    The Popit menu is a cool little innovation by Media Molecule.  It can be
    activated at ANY time during ALL modes of gameplay by pressing the square
    button; it is truly universal in the world of LBP.
    
    During normal gameplay, through the Popit menu you can:
    
          -Access a list of objects you have hearted (favourited)
                  -You can HEART objects by pressing the square button while
                   hilighting an object while browsing your list of objects, then
                   choosing to "heart it" (press X)
    
          -Stickers and Decorations
                  -This is a list of all the stickers and decorations that your
                   Sackboy has collected throughout the game.  You can also access
                   the PLAYSTATION Eye camera functions, the in-game photos that
                   you have taken with the photo tool (or that the game has taken
                   for you during certain levels), and community photos which are
                   photos you took while playing with others.
    
          -Customize Character
                  -You will be using this A LOT to dress up your Sackboy or Sackgirl
                   in accordance with the latest fashion trends (or you can start
                   your own trends!).  You can customize your Sackboy's material
                   (skin); head (eyes, glasses, hair, head, moustache, mouth); and
                   torso (feet, hands, legs, neck, torso, waist).
    
          -Text Chat
                  -Here you can type something in with the on-screen text input
                   tool or with a keyboard, and the resulting message will appear
                   as a speech bubble originating from your Sackboy.  This aspect
                   of the Popit menu is useful while playing with others.
    
          -Try Again
                  -Hold the X button while hilighting this option to force your
                   Sackboy to implode after ~3 seconds.  A nasty, but strangely
                   adorable little animation.  This is useful for when you get
                   stuck in a level and need to respawn from the last checkpoint.
                   You will more likely use this option to purposely respawn from
                   the last checkpoint in order to try the last section again, go
                   for that tricky prize bubble, etc...
    
    
    ADDITIONAL POPIT MENU OPTIONS IN CREATE MODE
    ----------------------------------------------
    In addition to the above options, in create mode the Popit menu also has:
    
          -Goodies Bag
                  -Here you can lay down the foundations of your level by using
                   different materials such as wood, sponge, metal, stone, etc...
    
                   There are also dozens and dozens of objects to choose from such
                   as trees, lights, food, bits and bobs, etc...
    
          -Tools Bag
                  -Here you can provide some more life to your creations by using
                   gadgets such as pistons, bolts, rods, springs, etc...
    
                   There are also switches to use here, which can add a lot of
                   variety to how your level plays out.
    
                   There are other essentials such as entrances, checkpoints,
                   scoreboards, hazards, etc...

    Section III. Miscellaneous Pointers
    ===============================================================
    
    ----------------------------------
    i. Finding Prize Bubbles
    ----------------------------------
    
    The majority of the prize bubbles located throughout the story levels are
    in plain view and easy to get, but there are many that will be quite difficult
    to find for the average Sackboy.
    
    If you want to find everything possible with one Sackboy, always:
    
          -Check behind objects
                  -There are three layers of depth to the world of LBP, explore all
                   of them thoroughly, especially when you can go behind objects,
                   including some story characters.
    
          -Look for clues
                  -Clues are usually subtle, such as a picture or an arrow-like
                   object pointing to a secret area.
    
          -Keep an eye out for sticker switches
                  -Sometimes these are very easy to miss if you aren't looking
                   carefully.  Sticker switches in the story mode have a unique
                   look to them and they are always shaped like the sticker that
                   activates them.  A key giveaway is the switch object itself,
                   which you should become familiar with.
    
                   You don't have to be precise with stickers when placing them on
                   switches as you will see in my videos.  Simply placing the
                   sticker in the vicinity of the switch is good enough although
                   slightly more precision is required when a group of switches are
                   bunched together.
    
                   Here is a picture of what it looks like, the top one is the
                   enlarged version, and the bottom one is the size that the
                   switches will appear as in the story levels.
    
    
    ----------------------------------
    ii. Getting Around
    ----------------------------------
    
    LittleBigPlanet is based on a complex physics system where objects are affected
    by gravity and friction.  It will take some time to get used to this, as with
    any other platformer.  Keep in mind that holding X longer will cause your
    Sackboy to jump higher and farther (if he is moving).  Long jumps require a
    slight run up to the jump.
    
    Also remember to grab onto things to swing from them or to move them around.
    Play around and see what you can find.
    
    Timing is important as well, especially in the later levels.  Platforming games
    often require patience and LittleBigPlanet is no exception.  99% of the time,
    the more patience you have in traversing through a level, the less often your
    Sackboy will get hurt.
    
    
    ----------------------------------
    iii. Acing a Level
    ----------------------------------
    
    To "ace" a level is to get to the end without your Sackboy dying.
    
    The most important thing to do when trying to ace levels is to have patience.
    I will provide some tips on how to ace each and every level in the story mode.
    
    I have aced every level and I've found that most of my mistakes come from
    trying to rush through a level to get to the most difficult section or from
    making minor mental errors, not from lack of skill or dexterity.
    
    
    -----------------------------------
    iv. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING EVER
    -----------------------------------
    
    Always remember to HAVE FUN when playing LittleBigPlanet!  Every time you curse
    at this game, a Sackboy or Sackgirl dies a horrible death :(
    
    
    ===============================================================
    Section IV. The LittleBigWalkthrough (How Original!)
    ===============================================================
    
    In this walkthrough, I will provide the following on each level:
    
          -Short description as seen in-game
          -Link to the YouTube video walkthrough
          -In-depth summary including a breakdown of all items
                  -Items will be listed as they appear in the in-game summary, in
                   rows from left to right.  The numbers in between (e.g. 00002,
                   00003, 00004, etc...) indicate the row number. 
                        -The letters in parantheses beside these item names
                         indicate the type:
                              -A for audio objects
                              -B for backgrounds
                              -C for costumes
                              -D for decorations
                              -M for materials
                              -O for objects
                              -S for stickers
                  -Items will be listed by type and alphabetically.
                  -Gifts for completing the level, collecting all items in the
                   level, and acing the level will also be listed.
                  -Items found only through multiplayer will be noted with a 2x,
                   3x, or 4x, indicating the number of players required for them.
          -Locations of tricky prize bubbles and how to get them
          -Notes on sticker switches and the stickers to activate them
          -Multiplayer portions
          -Difficulty on acing and how to do it
          -Percentage of prizes found that you should have on the first play
           through
          -Note: All aced level gifts are costumes
    
    Minigame levels will be added in the future.

    MULTIPLAYER
    ---------------
    
    
    
    ACING
    ---------------
    Difficulty: 1/10
    
    Tips: It is easy to ace this level, but more difficult to find out how.  You
          must activate the Rainbow Shoe sticker switch near the beginning of the
          level to activate a race timer.  This forces a bird to lower over the
          destructible bridge so that you can jump and grab onto it instead of
          falling to the pit below and being forced to retry which costs a life.
          Use the bird to swing across the pit and finish the level.

    Wow, this level is huuuge!  It's the only level that won't "pre-load" for some
    reason, which is why I had to record the whole loading time in the video (about
    15 seconds).  Also, when the level first begins, there are many objects that
    load up in the background as you can see in the video.
    
    Impressive job by Media Molecule here.  The background music in this level is
    also very memorable.

    IV f. The Islands, by Grandmaster Sensei

    Wow!  The first two levels of tihs world are so beautiful and inspiring. Take
    some time to soak them in because the attention to detail won't be matched for
    a while by the community.

    "Your ninja training begins here."
    
    This level is the true test of your platforming skills in all of story mode.  I
    had a lot of fun (and some frustration) making the video for this level.  Every
    platforming section is just so rewarding once you get them down.  The section
    at the 3 minute mark of the video is one of the more difficult platforming
    sections in the game.

    die a horrible death from all the cursing you will likely do.  Patience is one
    of the ninja's greatest virtues.

    Tricky items: Be careful not to miss the sticker switch, see below.
    
                  Near the end of the level, where the Great Magician is pulling a
                  box up and down with his arm, there's a prize bubble above his
                  head.  First you need to grab the grabbable block when you see it
                  and use that to get the Score Challenge key.  Then jump on his
                  hand while the box is lowered.  When he raises his hand, use the
                  upward momentum to launch your Sackboy onto his upper arm (or his
                  head if you can make it in one jump) and get the item on his
                  head.
                  
    Sticker Switches: This sticker switch is quite easy to miss.  It is in the
                      section with the two grabbable blocks that pull out platforms
                      needed to progress further (a little bit after the two-player
                      section).
                      
                      There are four stickers that need to be placed, in this
                      order: the Cobra Tail; two sections of the Straight Cobra
                      Body; and finally the Cobra Head. Placing each sticker will
                      cause the entire cobra to descend a little bit, so the head
                      will have to be placed on last.
    
    
    MULTIPLAYER
    ---------------
    This two-player section is arguably the toughest in the whole game, it requires
    precise communication and co-ordination from both players.
    
    To even get to this multiplayer section, you need to pass the falling blocks
    from the previous section without dying, otherwise you will start on a later
    checkpoint.  When you hit the switch to start the falling blocks here, they
    will always fall in a set pattern, e.g. right, left, middle, right, left,
    middle, etc...  So you only need to carefully avoid the first layer and after
    that it is just a matter of time.
    
    After reaching the two-player section, one player will have to activate the
    switches while the other one jumps on the blocks.  Start off by hitting either
    the left or right switch once, then have the other Sackboy jump on that block.
    Now hit the opposite switch TWICE and have the other Sackboy jump up.  Hit the
    opposite side TWICE again and have the other Sackboy jump up.  Keep repeating
    this pattern until the jumping Sackboy can reach the upper level safely.  You
    will have to complete this pattern fairly quickly to be successful.
    
    Once at the top, the upper Sackboy can activate the checkpoint and the lower
    Sackboy can retry to respawn there or the upper Sackboy can activate the two
    switches up top so that the lower one can get up as well.  It is up to you
    which way you do it.  If you don't retry for the instant respawn then you will
    have one more life from the checkpoint portal.
    
    After the checkpoint, one Sackboy will have to stand on the higher ground while
    the other Sackboy will be on the lower ground.  Have the lower Sackboy run
    across with the upper Sackboy following very closely.  While the lower Sackboy
    is running across, there will be falling blocks for the upper Sackboy to run
    across.  The lower Sackboy will also have to jump up a few steps to complete
    the section.  Do this quickly so that the upper Sackboy can follow before the
    blocks disappear.  There is a moment to rest after that portion.
    
    Now it is time for the upper Sackboy to create platforms for the lower Sackboy
    by jumping across the pits while the lower Sackboy follows closely behind,
    jumping on the platforms that appear.  After this, there is another rest spot.
    
    This section is very similar to what you just did, except the lower Sackboy
    will have to go first and jump on the platforms.  The upper Sackboy should
    follow closely behind, jumping on the platforms that appear.
    
    After this, the upper Sackboy can finally collect the prize bubbles, plus one
    more on the sliding ramp back to the rest of the level.
    
    
    ACING
    ---------------
    Difficulty: 7/10
    
    Tips: The trick here is recognizing patterns.  Recognize the patterns of the
          appearing/disappearing/falling blocks and then manoeuver your Sackboy
          through those blocks.  This may require some platforming skills as well,
          but by this point in the game it should not be a problem for you and your
          Sackboy.
          
          The only other tricky points in this level are the fire pits with flaming
          logs that fly overhead.  These also have a pattern so jump across when
          the coast is clear, it is imperative that you have PATIENCE in these
          spots.
          
          This level is quite masterfully designed and while acing it is not easy,
          it will bring a great sense of accomplishment.

    Tricky items: There is one item at the beginning of the long ice track where
                  the rocket dogs travel.  The easiest way to get this is to
                  approach the item slowly as shown in the video and jump just when
                  the track curves down.  Please note that you don't need to jump
                  from the sled to get this item.  You can jump off the ice track
                  with some momentum to get this one.
                  
                  In the section after the long ice track, there are three levels
                  of ice platforms.  If you want to get all the items here in one
                  shot, then jump to the top one and jump QUICKLY across to the
                  right and keep going.  The trick to doing this successfully is to
                  jump quickly and don't jump at the edge of each platform or else
                  you may overjump.
                  
                  After the top level, drop down and push the block to the right to
                  open up another passage.  Head back to the left and make your way
                  through the middle level.  Going through here is similar to going
                  through the top level.
                  
                  After the middle level, go through the bottom levle at your own
                  pace since there are no falling icicles.  After going through the
                  bottom level, DON'T TOUCH THE NEXT CHECKPOINT, instead you should
                  retry to spawn at the last checkpoint and activate the Gear
                  Graphic sticker for two items.
                  
                  If you screw up this section then just restart the level since
                  it's fairly early in the level.
                  
                  In the section with the shooting bullets, there is a prize bubble
                  behind the top cannon.  You'll have to jump over at least one
                  bullet and jump over the cannon to get this item.  Jump toward
                  the cannon just before the bullet starts moving.
                  
    Sticker Switches: There is a Gear Graphic sticker switch after the dogsledding
                      section.  The Gear Graphic sticker is on the bottom level of
                      the following section so you can get that sticker as I have
                      outlined above and retry to respawn at that checkpoint, or
                      you can finish the level and replay it since the sticker
                      switch is near the beginning of the level.
    
    
    MULTIPLAYER
    ---------------
    This four-player section is at the end of the level just before the enemies, it
    is very hard to miss.  Have every Sackboy stand on one switch and the platform
    will move up.  Once the platform stops, head to the right and look at the four
    images on the wall.  Next to these images are four different wheels.  Have each
    Sackboy control each wheel and turn them so that they point to the appropriate
    image.
    
    Image 1, Image 2, Image 3, Image 3.....Wheel 1, Wheel 2, Wheel 3, Wheel 4
                                           Image 1, Image 2, Image 3, Image 4
                                           
    After opening the door, have every Sackboy stand on the platform.  The finger
    will push the button and five prize bubbles will fall down.  Grab these and
    head to the exit.  After falling through the tunnel, your Sackboy will collect
    the final item, which is The Soldier object.             
    
    
    ACING
    ---------------
    Difficulty: 3/10
    
    Tips: The hardest sections here are the bullet sections and the final section
          with the Triple Decker enemy.  You don't have to destroy the top bullet
          cannon, just time your jumps so that your Sackboy can safely make it into
          the pits.
          
          As for the final enemy, the easiest way to kill this one is jump on the
          left brain, then as it is moving to the left, jump on its right brain.
          Wait for the electric arms to become horizontal (pointing left+right) and
          carefully jump onto the middle brain.

    Tricky items: The items in the very beginning of the level can be reached by
                  moving The Soldier to the left and jumping on him.  It doesn't
                  matter if he falls over, you should still be able to make the
                  jump.
                  
                  In two spots in this level, there are two giant rotating drums.
                  To get to the items above them, you have to jump and land in the
                  opening(s) of these drums and use the momentum of the rotation
                  to jump up and onto the drum (or to jump up on the snowy hill in
                  the case of the second rotating drum.
                  
                  After the section with the four rotating semi-circles, there are
                  two items in the background that you can reach by moving to the
                  back in the z-axis (behind the checkpoint) and jumping on a
                  block, then jumping on the snowy hill and heading left.  The
                  moving targets don't affect your ability to get the items.
                  
                  There are items and sections that you can only reach by jumping
                  on enemies and using the bounce to get a higher jump.  These
                  instances are only one-shot so if you kill the enemy and don't
                  make it, you will have to restart the level.
    
    Sticker Switches: After the section where the score challenge key is located,
                      jump up onto the snowy hills and make your way up to the
                      platform.  Use the Power Fist sticker to activate the
                      platform.  You are now on the body of a tank.  Walk to the
                      right and jump on the switch to blast the turret.  Keep doing
                      this until you can get all the prize bubbles.  You may have
                      to shoot some of the prize bubbles if they don't fall down.
    
    
    MULTIPLAYER
    ---------------
    This multiplayer section is fairly simple.  There are prize bubbles that you
    can get with 2 or more players (bottom), and prize bubbles that you can get
    with 3 or more players (top).
    
    This puzzle is very simple and can be finished with trial and error, but if you
    need more help then read the instructions below.
    
    To get all the items (if you only have two Sackboys then you will not be able
    to perform the final step):
    
    1. Take Sackboy 1 to the bottom right circle, pull the switch.
    2. Move Sackboy 1 to the bottom left circle, pull the switch.
    3. Move Sackboy 2 and 3 to the top right circle
    4. Have Sackboy 1 pull the switch in the bottom left circle again.
    5. Have Sackboy 2 go to the top left circle and jump on the red switch.
    6. Have Sackboy 1 pull the switch in the bottom left circle and head left to
       get the items.
    7. Have Sackboy 3 pull the switch in the top right circle.  Sackboy 2 can now
       head left to get the remaining items.

    Tips: This level is the most difficult to ace in Story mode, which is why it
          gets a 10/10 on the difficulty scale.  Like always, the biggest key is
          patience, meaning you should not try to rush through the level.
          
          The section wtih the two large rotating platforms where the score
          challenge key can be passed by waiting for them to rotate CLOCKWISE,
          jumping on, and then running quickly to the second one.  By the time you
          reach the second one, it should be starting to rotate COUNTERCLOCKWISE
          which you should be able to jump off to the right.
          
          The enemy with the three brains can be passed by jumping on the left
          brain, then waiting for it to move left, and jumping to the right and
          over it completely.  You do not have to kill this enemy.
          
          The giant hamster wheel of shocking death isn't as scary as it may seem.
          You can pass it in one try as I did in the video.  If you want to jump
          farther than usual, just wait a little bit so that your Sackboy is going
          up and left with the rotation of the wheel, then jump. Use this technique
          to make those tricky long jumps in the last portion. Just make sure that
          you jump immediately after landing if you need to make a short jump so
          that the momentum of the spinning wheel doesn't cause your Sackboy to
          miss the jump. 
          
          The rest of this level is fairly simple so refer to the video if you have
          any trouble on those parts.

    Tricky items: Two items that can be obtained after freeing Don Lu's dog by
                  having the dog follow you and activating the switches below.
    
                  The items in the section with the rotating right-angled platforms
                  Jump off the moving platform that is rotating the way you want to
                  go. Before the platform rotates, move in the direction that you
                  want to go in and jump WITH the rotating platform as shown in the
                  video. Be careful not to get caught in the gaps between the
                  moving platforms otherwise the jump will be very weak.
    
                  In the bottom portion of the rotating right-angled platforms, you
                  need to move your Sackboy quickly in order to grab the hanging
                  bag.  Then jump off when there is a platform available.  Jump
                  just before the platforms rotate in order to move along and
                  eventually get the key and the item beside it.
    
    
    Sticker Switches: Wiry Tree sticker switch at the beginning of the level, move
                      back to the middle layer of the z-axis and jump over the gap
                      and head right.
    
    
    MULTIPLAYER
    ---------------
    
    This 4-player section is easy.  After the first Sackperson has stepped on the
    red switch, have another Sackperson stand on the red switch that appears below.
    Do this for the next two red switches that appear.
    
    If you don't want any Sackperson to die then simply have everyone move AFTER
    the topmost Sackperson jumps to their left and gets all the prize bubbles.  It
    doesn't really matter if any Sackperson dies because you should have plenty of
    checkpoint respawns available at that location and at the next one.
    
    
    ACING
    ---------------
    Difficulty: 6/10
    
    Tips: This level isn't as bad as it seems, but it is one of the more difficult
          levels to ace since it is quite long and not exactly easy.  The key here
          is patience as with almost every other level.  The long vertical
          corridors do take some memorization or at least familiarity with where to
          move, otherwise the rest of the level is about having some solid
          platforming skills.
    
          Also Know when to jump in the section with the very large moving
          platforms, it will take some trial and error.
    
          Please check out my video for more details.
