To Team17: Bottles not adding time?
Is this a bug or a design decision? It's (nearly) impossible to get 100% now.

The bottles does not add extra time, I´m afraid.

It's not nearly impossible. It IS impossible.

No it's not a bug.
You need find a clock that add more time becuase orange/yellow bottle replenish health and blue bottle gives temporary invisibility.

At least I know so far.

That applies only in new levels. Original ones don't have clocks.

They should change that. It makes searching for hidden stuff rather frustrating. It is extremely stupid that when times run out you are immediately game over. What about loosing a life, starting at checkpoint and resetting the timer. That was what happened in the original wasn't it (not to mention the orange bottles adding time).

Honestly the timer makes the game a lot less fun (mainly due to game over).

I am at the second world now and it seems to be less an issue here since there are a lot of clock pickups. But at least one of the forest levels could have used that too...

Again, this thread is about ORIGINAL levels.

The original levels are indeed very difficult and unbalanced in the remake - levels where there was a 99 coin requirement seem to now require about 200 coins which makes them a lot harder, and you have to do all of this in six minutes without any time pickups.

I've been trying to beat 6-4 Original for a while, and I don't actually think it's possible to beat at all due to the timer and thelong spike strip which you would need to use wings to get across, but since you can't "fly" like in the original it's near impossible to get across.

There's entries in the Settings.xml buried away in the assets zip for the timers, being two separate settings for original and HD levels, and I wouldn't consider it cheating to give the original levels a ten minute(600 seconds if you're planning to tweak) timer instead of the six minutes which you get now.

It actually IS possible to finish all levels with 3 stars. It just needs a little practice.

Yeah its quite difficult - but possible.
