@Super_Conzo If your times with the plain stone are that fast you should have no problem beating my mutagen times! My best times on the first few levels with the stone are around one minute. To get down to around 50 seconds I need the jewel.
@canonj I find those easy enough to look "through" now, but sometimes the obstacles like the cookies and spinning planks come out a bit too far and virtually poke me in the eyes. It's still easier to see what's going on with the 3D on than with it off, though, I think.
@Zero It's not like I breezed through the wells on my first go either. It takes a good while to get used to the mutagen for sure, and as the levels get more complex I get more and more scared of even trying the damn thing out. I didn't go for all the boosts on the second and third wells either, btw.
I can't even beat the first well with the Russian doll. I get like halfway down and bam, that's it. It's tough too because with the doll health balloons don't do anything for you. You get 5 hits, you're done, period.
The lowest HP "stone" I have been able to finish a stage with is the 80 HP gem. And even that took me some effort.
I still have two "stones" locked. Not sure how to unlock them. Probably by finishing wells with the Russian doll and the mutagen. Ug.
I think the Russian doll is one of the harder objects to use since its shape makes it hard to fit properly through small passages, and the damn thing starts wobbling whenever I hit something, and then I just keep hitting stuff as I try to regain control.
There's one stone locked for me, the one in the top right. Not quite sure what I actually did to unlock the rest of them, does anybody know?
I just gave up on trying to beat the fifth level with the mutagen, myself. When god said "let there be light", I think he should have pushed a little harder for there being some light in the fifth well. On to the Firey Fissure instead.
Well 1, First Fall: 00:41.49 with the mutagen Well 2, Twofold Trail: 00:40.26 with the mutagen Well 3, Terrible Trios: 00:37.49 with the mutagen Well 4, Perilous Pit: 00:45.06 with the mutagen Well 5, Shadowy Shaft: 00:55.33 with the jewel Well 6, Fiery Fissure: 00:42.39 with the mutagen Well 7, Brutal Barriers: 00:50.49 with the mutagen Well 8, Ensnaring Edges: 00:46.43 with the jewel Well 9, Dire Descent: 00:50.69 with the jewel (managed to beat it with the mutagen but did four seconds worse) Well 10, Absolute Abyss: 01:44.03 with the jewel
Hey, don't sweat it. I had a couple of goes at Well 5 and decided to shelve the game for the sake of my sanity. I will return one day. Too many big releases on my radar. Acivity log says I've poured over 10 hours into this game, and I never even unlocked the Jewel!
