Jiggosseum: Act 2
Objective: Win First Place
Vehicle Advice: Build a vehicle with a high top-speed and enough fuel to last the race
Okay, so this race is likely both the longest and hardest one you've faced yet. Because of the race's length, having ample fuel supplies are crucial (our vehicle had 1 Medium tank, and 3 small ones, which was just barely enough). As for the vehicle itself, there are two main options: build a very fast land-based vehicle, or a well-handling flying one. If you opt for the ground, slap on as many engines as you can, as you're going to need speed in order to take first (we placed 3-Medium engines on ours, but this guzzles fuel). You'll also want a quick vehicle so you can take first place quickly, as the other racers possess oil spills and ice rockets that can be a major pain to contend with if you're behind them. Finally, be careful of the obstacles and stick to the main track--if you get knocked off, drive toward the next checkpoint, keeping an eye out for the ramps you can use to reach the track.
If driving isn't working out for you, there is another option that you may want to consider: Build a flying vehicle. We slapped two propellers onto our Shopping Cart (one on top, the other on the back--no wings), which allowed us to fly from checkpoint to checkpoint, skipping the courses' hazards entirely (including your opponent's oil spills and ice rockets). This also allows you to cut across the center of the level to quickly reach the far-checkpoints (occurs after every 2nd checkpoint), saving a ton of time. Now controlling flying vehicles can be tricky, so make sure you approach the checkpoints low enough that you can clear them.
T.T. Trophy Tips:
- It's all about speed! Slap on as many engines & fuel tanks as you can and let 'er rip!
- Try to take the lead early on, that way you won't have to deal with your opponents' weapons.
Objective: Knock Over as Many Dominoes as you Can
Vehicle Advice: Either build a vehicle that can push balls, or design an aircraft with a huge structure underneath
Knocking over Dominoes may sound easy, but oh how mistaken you are. If you're just going for the jiggy, we suggest using a vehicle that can carry objects, such as the Tray. When the challenge begins, hop out of your vehicle and grab the red ball behind you and toss it in your vehicle. Now ram into the blocks at high-speed, and at a slight angle, to knock them over--the ball you were carrying/pushing should go on to knock over a few more, netting you the puzzle piece.
T.T. Trophy Tips:
- In order to get the Trophy, you're going to have to attach the dominoes from the center, so they'll fan out. And the only way to do this is with an aircraft. We suggest building a helicopter that has a huge block structure underneath (as shown in our video), then fly over the dominoes and dive into the center, ramming into those on the northern-half. As long as you hit enough stacks, you should get the trophy.
- In addition to the trick above, try attaching the huge-block structure to a "Detacher." Now fly toward the center and release the block-structure just before impact--this will allow it to knock over the same blocks it would have otherwise, but now your helicopter may also knock over a few more as it crashes to the ground.
