    FAQ first posted on 1/30/06
    
    ================================================================================
            Controls
    ================================================================================
    
    LT/A: Jump
    RT/B: Use Powerup
    LB/RB/X: Blast
    Left Thumbstick: Move Marble
    Right Thumbstick: Move Camera

            The Eggs
    ================================================================================
    
    As a note, you do NOT need to finish the level to confirm that you have gotten
    the egg. Once you have gotten the egg, you can exit the level and you'll see
    that you have gotten the egg when you look on the level select screen.
    
    
    
    --------------------------------Beginner Levels---------------------------------
    
    
    
    1. Level 1: Learning to Roll
       From the beginning of the level, go up the ramp, and follow it to the steps,
       then follow those all the way up. At the end of the steps (it says "be
       careful not to fall off the ledge"), turn left and you'll see a ledge right
       at the top of the steps. You should see the egg at the far end. Jump blast up
       the ledge and then jump to the next one, then use the beam on the right side
       to make it to the egg ledge, and jump up the ledge to get the egg.
    
    
    
    2. Level 3: Gem Collection 
       Go forward, make a right after the first gem, and go forward up the ramp in
       front of you towards the time travel powerups. Go up two more slants (you'll
       be going in a circle) and at the end of the last slant make a right, and go
       straight until you hit the wall. Jump blast onto the top of that wall and 
       you'll see a gyrocopter sitting there. Grab it, then you can do this part
       one of two ways. Turn around and face the large pillars that you've been
       circling around and:
           1. Activate the gyrocopter and jump towards the pillar, and bounce into
              it to gain some extra height, then use that extra bounce to land on
              the top of the pillar where you'll find another gyrocopter.
           2. Go towards the pillar on the left side, activate the gyrocopter and
              jump up to the lowest pillar, then once you land jump blast up to the
              tallest pillar where you'll find another gyrocopter.
       Both ways are easy, try #1 first. Once you get on the top turn left and
       you'll see a pillar on the far left with the easter egg on it. Activate the
       gyrocopter and jump towards it and you'll land right on it, or just pick it
       up as you swoop by.
    
    
    
    3. Level 9: First Flight
       Get the gyrocopter and land on the second ledge down (it has the checkpoint
       on it). Grab the gyrocopter in front of the checkpoint, then face towards the
       exit, and then turn left. See the glass in front of you? Well, the egg's
       below the floor where the glass is. Activate the gyrocopter and go
       directional forward-right and fall off the edge, then as soon as you fall off
       the edge hold directional forward-left and you'll land in a little
       compartment below and the egg will be on your left. Use the blast if you need
       a little extra height.
    
    
    
    4. Level 17: Ramp Matrix
       Go forward down the ramp and make a left, then go down that ramp and get the
       super bounce. Go down the rest of the ledges and go to the exit (make sure
       you don't have all the gems). Stand on the exit, literally, and then do a 
       super jump blast to get the egg that's hanging above the exit. To do the
       super jump blast, jump up and then press the blast button and the super jump
       button at the same time and you'll skyrocket up (using regular controls:
       LT, RB+RT).
    
    
    
    5. Level 20: Upward Spiral
       This is a fun one. Go through the entire level up to where you pick up the
       second super jump powerup. Get the powerup, but don't use it yet. Locate the
       direction where the exit is. Wait for another super jump powerup to spawn,
       and when it does, roll towards it and once you touch it use the super jump
       powerup and you'll jump twice as high as a regular super jump. While you are
       super super jumping head towards the exit, and on top of the exit (the level
       above the exit) the easter egg will be right in front of it. Be careful
       though, as if you jump too far you'll end the level but if you jump to close
       you'll just fall down onto the level under it. It will take a few tries to
       get this egg.
    
    
    
    ------------------------------Intermediate Levels-------------------------------
    
    
    
    6. Level 21: Mountaintop Retreat
       Go through the level till you hit the checkpoint. When you touch the
       checkpoint keep the camera where it is, and go backwards down the ramp and
       park yourself on the outside corner on the left. Turn the camera 90 degrees
       right, and move the marble one marble length to the left. Fall off the ledge
       and hold forward a split second after you fall off, and you'll land on the
       egg (it's just out of bounds, so you'll see out of bounds, and then you'll
       get the egg).
    
    
    
    7. Level 22: Urban Jungle
       Go forward, go straight at the checkpoint intersection, follow the path
       around going straight at the next intersection, and at the bottom of the two
       ramps make a left and you'll see the super jump powerup. Grab it but don't
       use it. Wait for it to respawn and when it does use it to super super jump
       onto the top of the pillar in front of you, where you'll find a gyrocopter
       (use the blast if you need some extra height). Turn around and jump blast
       back to where the super jump ability is. You're goal is to get on top of the
       pillar that's on the inside corner where the super jump powerup is. Activate
       the gyrocopter and then immediately grab the super jump powerup and super
       jump blast with the gyrocopter to get to the top of the pillar where you'll
       find the egg.
    
    
    
    8. Level 32: Obstacle Course
       Go through the level to where the first checkpoint is. Turn right and go down
       the two ramps, and then you'll see the trap doors across the gap. Jump onto
       the one in the middle and fall through it to get the egg.
    
    
    
    9. Level 33: Fork in the Road
       Go straight and up the ramp, make the left, and keep going straight till you
       reach the part of the level with holes in the ground, then go past that part
       and up the ramps with the time travel powerups. At the top you'll find the
       gyrocopter. Now, jump off the ledge to the right and when you land, look
       under the "U" shaped curve and you'll see the easter egg under the curve. To
       get it, activate the gyrocopter and head straight towards it, then when you
       are near it use the blast to gain the extra height to grab the egg.
    
    
    
    10. Level 35: Black Diamond
        Here's an annoying one. Go through the level staying towards the right side.
        After the first checkpoint, keep staying towards the right side, and after
        you go up the slope and past the dip you'll find yourself on a long,
        straight, smooth path sloping down for a long time. Use that to gain speed
        and just keep going straight once the path levels out. Hit the edge of the
        end of the first dip and you'll skyrocket up. The egg is literally in the
        middle of the air just floating there. When you are flying through the air,
        if you don't use the blast you'll be just below the egg, so when you can
        see the egg use your blast and you'll hit it. If you're too high then blast
        a little later, if you're too low then blast a little sooner.
    
    
    
    11. Level 38: Whirl
        Go all the way to the exit but don't go in it. Turn around and jump blast on
        top off the loop that you last came up, then continue forward in the center
        of it and you'll find the egg.
    
    
    
    12. Level 39: Hop Skip and a Jump
        Go through the level till you find the gyrocopter, then look up at the
        pillar on your right; the egg is right behind it. Activate the gyrocopter
        and jump blast a little bit to the left of it and you'll see the egg right
        in front of you. If it's too high above you when you reach it then you hit
        the blast too late, and if it's too low below you then you hit the blast too
        early.
    
    
    
    --------------------------------Advanced Levels---------------------------------
    
    
    
    13. Level 43: Ordeal
        Go through the level up to the first checkpoint. Go forward and turn left,
        hitting the first gravity modifier, then turn left and go to the edge of the
        ledge. Look down over the ledge and you'll see two more ledges below you.
        Jump down to the bottom one and head to the right edge. Look down it and
        you'll see the egg. Just drop down and you'll get it.
    
    
    
    14. Level 44: Daedalus
        From the start, follow the path to the left, going straight at the 3-way
        intersection, and you'll find a gyrocopter. Go through the level to the exit
        (again don't get all of the gems) and directly under the exit is the egg. To
        get it just activate the gyrocopter and glide off of the ledge and use the
        blast to gain the height you need to get the egg. If you want to do it a
        different way, then when you are on the final moving platform that takes you
        to the exit activate the gyrocopter and jump directly towards the bottom of
        the exit for the egg.
    
    
    
    15. Level 48: Scaffold
        Head all the way to the exit, but don't go in it (of course). Facing the
        exit, look under the left ledge close to the exit and you'll see the egg.
        Position yourself directly above the egg on the edge of the ledge and then
        roll off of it, holding forward as soon as you fall, and use the blast to
        get a little extra boost to get the egg.
    
    
    
    16. Level 51: Battlements
        Go into the tower where the exit is. Turn left and jump blast onto the top
        of the corner piece to your left, and then jump on to the pillar where the
        fan is. When you are on the pillar, face the exit, and go to the corner on
        the left side. You should be able to see the bottom of the egg under the
        exit. Build up the blast and then jump towards the egg and blast near it to
        get the height to get the egg.
    
    
    
    17. Level 52: Three Fold Maze
        From the start, turn completely around and go towards the ramp with the
        gravity modifiers on it. Hit the one on the left, and when you get off the 
        ramp turn right and go down the ramp in front of you. Follow the path
        around, passing the first gem, and when you see the next gravity modifiers,
        grab the one on the right. Turn right and follow the path, but right before
        the ramp look to your left and you'll find a gyrocopter. Grab it and turn
        around, and keep going straight in the same direction after you've passed
        the ramp on your left, and you'll see a platform over the edge where a gem
        is. Drop down and touch the checkpoint where the gem is (believe me you'll
        be thankful that the checkpoint is there). Now, turn around and hit the
        gravity modifier on the left, then go all the way to the end where some more
        gravity modifiers are lying, but don't pick them up. Now, go into the corner
        left of the modifiers and face them. Activate the gyrocopter and slide left
        off the edge holding forward as soon as you slide off, and you'll see the
        egg sitting on the outside of the wall. Use the blast to gain some extra
        height to grab it. If you miss it, then you'll start from that very close
        checkpoint.
    
    
    
    18. Level 54: Will o Wisp
        Follow through the level, and after you get the second gem, continue down
        the path, and when you get to a part where there's another path under you,
        drop down it, and where the two paths cross will be a gyrocopter. Grab it
        and head for the exit. When you first land on the same platform that the
        exit's on, well I don't know how to describe this so I'll draw a picture:
                 _
               _| |_
              |_   _|
               ^|_|
                 O
    
        See where the ^ is? Well the "O" is where you first landed on the platform,
        look under the inside corner where the ^ is and you'll be able to see the
        egg sitting in the supports. Activate the gyrocopter and drop off the ledge
        to glide to the egg, using the blast if you need extra height.
    
    
    
    19. Level 58: King of the Mountain
        Follow through the level and after the annoying bumpers you'll reach a
        checkpoint. Go up the ledges and past the two fans and you'll find a
        gyrocopter. Wait for another gyrocopter to spawn, then activate yours and
        grab the one that respawned, then jump up the wall in front of you. You'll
        literally find a whole new path around the mountain. After you jump up the
        wall you'll land on a yellow ramp. Continue forward and you'll see a ledge
        that you can drop down to. Follow it around, jump the gap, and on the right
        side you'll see a veeeeeery thin path along the side of the mountain for you
        to walk across. Go all the way across it, past the corner, and when you hit
        the wall, face the wall that you've been hugging, then with your blast at
        full, activate the gyrocopter and jump blast up the wall, bouncing into the
        wall to give you extra height, and the egg will be on top of the mountain.
    
    
    
    20. Level 59: Natural Selection
        Go through the level, and when you get to the part where the platform has
        just came up through a hold as you went up numerous ramps, and then you
        choose to take two paths as the platform is about to go into the small gap
        in the wall (you'll be at about 1 minute if you started on the moving
        platform around 4 seconds), take the left path, and when you get to the top
        platform you'll find a gyrocopter. Get the gyrocopter and wait for another
        one to spawn. When it does, activate your gyrocopter, grab the one that just
        spawned, and jump up to the level right above you. Look in front of you and
        see the very tall pillar? The egg's on top of it. Go forward and on the
        right side CAREFULLY drop down onto the level below, and on the bottom part
        you'll see the super jump powerup. Activate the gyrocopter, grab the super
        jump powerup and then super jump up to the top of the pillar to get the egg.
