HELP - Level Glitch?
Hi,

Go to point 2.28 in this video - that is the point which isn't working properly

http://youtu.be/vQN9i8LqzfY?t=2m28s

I get to the same point as in the video - but EVERY SINGLE TIME i jump onto the platform when the water almost drowns you - IT IMMEDIATELY MAKES YOU RUN TO THE LEFT AND DROWN.... wtf?

I swear i'm not doing anything wrong.. in the video the worm doesn't change direction again unlike what it keeps doing to me as soon as it lands on the log - wtf do i do to fix the damn thing - should be working? Done it for like 15 minutes now - sick to death?

i've been mostly trying to press right and up to jump to the right and think i've tried just up as jump but still then changes and drowns me to the left?

cheers

Did you fix it ?
Have you reversed -again- the trend before climbing the ladders ?
I mean, when the pipe is broken, you must go the the left, find the light after jumping the box and then you can climb the ladders and jump to the right.

find the light? don't remember that part... i haven't played it for weeks cause i got so fed up of not getting past this stupid glitch - ruining the game for me. I can't explain why it won't work cause i don't think there is a real reason its just screwed up for some reason! infurtiating.

any chance you could upload a video of you doing it successfully and i'll try and recreate it to the letter?

cheers!

I think I understand what is happening here. Your problem isn't at the top of the ladder, it's at the bottom of the ladder.

If the parasite is forcing you to travel left when you get on the ladder, it will still be forcing you to go left when you jump off of the ladder. (even if you are able to jump off to to the right)
In order to be going the correct direction, you have to be going to the right when you get on the ladder, so first jump across both until you get to the light on the other side: walking into light is what causes a parasite to change the direction it's forcing you to move in.

Try watching that same video from here, and you may notice a difference between what the video is doing and what you are doing.

This is possibly the most frustrating part about puzzle games. When the puzzles get really tough, you can't always tell if it's you or the game that is messing up.

If you watch the video from 1:23 onwards, you will notice that he goes all the way to the LEFT until he hits the LIGHT at 1:48 that reverses him to walk towards RIGHT. Only then you can successfully climb the ladder and jump from log to ledge without drowning.
