Hard Gold Medals
« on: February 02, 2012, 02:36:19 AM »
Fast Eggs- A level filled with frustration. How could you possibly protect EVERY SINGLE EGG!?!?
Fast Eggs Hard- Same reasons above, plus deadly Maiasuari!
Dinogoo- I ALWAYS get silver. I can't lure the goo away from the food AND finish in less than half a minute.
Save the Dinosaurs Hard- I can't even get better than bronze. Too Hard!!
Cow Crossing Hard- This level is like Hovershield. Harder than Machinelaser Hard!!
Hovershield- Soooooooo hard!! What were you thinking when you designed this evil level?! This competes with Cow Crossing Hard and Fast Eggs Hard for hardest level ever.

Any advice?

Tasty Planet is so great. How did only a two-person company make such a great game!?

One thing that you can do to help get golds... and I don't usually do this, but I'm sure ThirdParty does... You memorize (or write down) the size at which you can eat the next sized object. So in "Rats vs Cats" you can eat the rats at 8.83 Centimeters and cats at 24.9 Centimeters. Knowing this, as soon as you reach that size you would go after those objects. This technique helps a lot on certain levels (it would probably be good on some of the space levels for example).

But James, some of the levels like Solar System Snack is much related to your speed.

That doesn't really help for getting faster times on teatime fast cats or cherry blossoms (other than tree)

I know it doesn't always help, but it often does. It lets you know immediately when you should move onto the next sized object, instead of guessing and relying on the arrow.

When the objects are randomly sized like the asteroids in Solar System Snack it doesn't help, but knowing exactly when to go eat the space stations can save a second or two.

... Anyways, I don't usually do it, except maybe when I was trying to beat Third Party for high scores. It's just a small tip that might help.  :)

Or make you scream at the game. I'm ALWAYS 2.13 at the tree with a time that could beat ThirdParty's. I manage to get 1 petal (tree is 2.14) and now have a time worse than his.

I got gold in Rats vs. Cats, even though I thought I had a bad run. I guess the mouse really is easier.

I drastically improved my Solar System Snack score. I am now number 4 in SSS!

I meant for other people Hii. Who aren't awesome at Tasty Planet.

Fast Eggs is hard. I think I've only played it once or twice, but I can't remember if I've beaten it.

Of course I've unlocked All The Way Down Hard. That's long ago, I've already done for 1 player all gold, now to move to two players.

Based on what ThirdParty said, you will find yourself with many records in the 2 player section.
