Optional Collectable Objective: Achieve A rank in all fights.
When this stage begins, you’ll be on an alien planet of sorts in what appears to be a highly-secure base. Let’s head right. Fight the first wave of enemies and continue right until you reach a computer to hack.
You’ll need to advance slowly to the middle section, dodging the falling blocks along the way. At the middle section, you’ll need to get on and off the middle square in such a way that the four blocks to the right line up. When they line up, head right and if you time it right, you’ll have a clear shot to the finish line.
Head right and get ready to fight a couple of waves of enemies. Before that though, be sure to spit at the bird pictured below:
One of the new enemies here will throw axes at you and it is very annoying. You will see your toad’s avatar pop up above their head. When you see that, get ready to evade.
After taking out these enemies, you’ll need to move deeper into the forest-like area. Keep an eye out for the bird in a nest pictured below. Spit on it to make it fly away. This will be important later for obtaining a collectable.
Head to the right and prepare to fight some enemies in the background. After finishing them off, be sure to go back to the foreground and head right to the dead end up ahead. You’ll see a red-swirled target. Spit at it to reveal a collectable.
Head back to the background and continue right. After taking out a couple of enemies up ahead, jump to the foreground and head left until you reach the electric circuit puzzle pictured below.
This is the same type of puzzle you’ve completed before except it has one new addition. That yellow square with a green arrow on its right and left side will bounce back any electricity coming its way in the opposite direction. This is important as you’ll need to bounce electricity back and forth in order to create a solution. The solution is pictured below.
This puzzle will open a door to the right. Head that way and spit at the bird pictured below.
You’ll have to fight three enemies just after that. Take them out and head into the room pictured below. Spit at the two “eyes’ of the machine. If you look in the upper left hand corner, you’ll see a poster that gives you the solution. Spit on the left eye until it looks like the left eye on the poster and do the same for the eye on the right.
Spit on the right eye three times and the left eye once, in other words. Upon doing so, a collectable will appear.
Head right and you’ll find yourself in front of the biggest electrical circuit puzzle yet. You’ll need to utilize what we just learned about the green arrow squares to solve this one. The solution is pictured below.
Head right until you reach a dead end. Pull the lever in the corner to reveal the background.
Take out the enemies here and travel along the background until you reach where we are below. If you look at the boxes to the left of the brown pole, you’ll see just a hint of a collectable. Make sure to swing back to the foreground to pick this collectable up.
Head right and fight the enemies throughout the shop. As you make your way through it, keep an eye out for the puzzle pictured below. The solution is in the picture. If you want to solve it yourself, look at the bottom of the screen and you’ll see various items sold in the shops. Go find those items in the shops, see what symbol represents them, and then plug those symbols into the background wall.
With the proper symbols plugged in, interact with the safe on the right and you’ll find a collectable inside.
After this, you’ll be back outside in an area that looks similar to the start of this stage. There is a bird to spit at in the background. It’s pictured below.
Continue right and take out the final wave of enemies in this stage. On your way out, you should see a nest with four birds (the birds we’ve been spitting on) and the fifth collectable on the stage.
Head right and the stage will be complete.
The next stage in the game is Act 2, Stage 3: A Hard Revenge.
