Exactly like I did with every other puzzle where I got stuck.
I’ve just realised this is the first time I’ve mentioned this game here. Not really surprising, as I bought it as soon as it came out, and hated it. It was too fiddly, the map was impossible to understand, and the puzzles were – even near the start – frustrating. I played for about an hour, and gave up.
Then I dug it out again a few days ago, and persevered with it. Eventually, the map made sense. I discovered ways of making creatures do things. I eventually figured out that our sparky chums in that screenshot could be doused with water to fizz them out. Then the second part of the game kicked in – you reach a giant heart, and are shown areas to find special frogs, which you have to lure into vacuum tubes. So off you go again, warping round (ah! that’s what the monoliths are for!) trying to get the special frogs.
And, somehow, the game is now awesome.
With 4 of the (it appears) 5 frogs caught, I think I’m nearing the end, but I’m really glad I gave Toki Tori 2 another shot.
