Maw will attack one, but unfortunately fails. Continue stumbling towards the bounty hunter (Frank looks like he's more hungover than hurt) until they flee. After yet another attempted attack on you, follow the path towards the big floating "?" just over the bend. Frank finds a galactic leash and decides to use it for himself. At least you now have some way to control Maw. Press X to leash Maw. Now you have at least some control over the jittery alien. Continue through the canyon into the large clearing. You get to witness Maw's insatiable appetite first-hand as he devours a cute Yum. Leash Maw and bring him into the clearing. Whenever he gets close to one of the Yums bouncing around, he'll eat it. Eat all of the Yums around the tree, then continue down the path to find a few more [8/45]. After eating eight Yums, Maw will grow in size! A boulder up ahead is blocking your path, but luckily your leash has more uses than you'd initially think. Press B next to the rock to leash it, then drag it out of the way. Grab Maw again and move on through. The duo will enter a large area. Ignore everything for now and cross the stream towards the "?". The three plants blocking the trail will scare Maw, so chase after him. The racket also woke up the Yums and Gastros here. Leash Maw and go after the Yums nearby [18/45]. After Maw grows again, a thought bubble appears, showing that the creature is intrigued by the Gastros. Cross the stream again and head towards one of the Gastros. As Maw tries to snack on the fiery beast, it'll burn his mouth. There must be a way to extinguish it... Press B next to a Gastro to leash it. Next, press Y to start spinning around in a circle. Aim for the stream so when you hit Y again, the Gastro is flung right into the water. It should take a few swings to land it into the water. Once the Gastro's flame has been put out, quickly grab Maw and let him eat the monster. Maw will change his appearance and develop a new ability: he can breathe fire. Run over to the remaining two Gastros and eat them without hesitation; they cannot burn Maw anymore. After the two Gastros are dealt with, search the area for any remaining Yums wandering around [27/45]. Since Maw can now breathe fire, use his new ability to burn down the nearby trees. I know it sounds like a dastardly deed, but doing so will reveal more Yums. Burn down the four patches of trees and snack on the Yums [39/45]. After eating 30 creatures, Maw will grow again and you will be able to torch the pesky plants blocking the exit. You can leave if you're in a rush, but I recommend staying to eat the remaining creatures here. There are still a few more Yums left! There are two large hills on the near side of the creek. Frank must scale the platforms by himself, so let go of Maw and jump up the platforms to the top of the hill. You will find some Yums up here as well. Since Maw cannot reach you, press B to grab a Yum, then press X to toss the poor guy right into Maw's mouth. The hill on the right is home to two Yums while the platform on the left holds four. Feed all six to Maw [45/45]. 100% eaten! However, we are STILL not done with the level just yet! Cross the stream again and go to the left of the plant trio. Near a patch of burnt trees should be a boulder blocking a small dirt path. Pull it out of the way with B, then follow it to a dead end. That floating creature in the center of the dead end is called a Snuffle: you can find one in each level and they are merely for completion's sake. It also happens to be Maw's favorite food! Eat the Snuffle [1/1] and return to the plants. Fry them with Maw's flame and go past their remains to end the level. ============================================================================== 3.02] BULB VALLEY [0302] ============================================================================== Creatures: Bulbous, Yum Amount: 38 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ At the start of the level, turn around and move the boulder out of the way. An imprisoned Snuffle resides back here. We can't free it until the end of the level, so ignore it for now. Instead, walk forward to be spotted by a sentry, which prompts the release of two turrets. Leave Maw near the sentry as you approach the turret. As the machine shoots energy balls at you, press A to dodge them, Matrix-style. Press B to grab the turret, then repeatedly tap A to destroy it. Ignore the imprisoned Yums for now and continue towards the "?". You will find an energy ball lying on the ground. Press B to grab it, then drag it back towards the machine powering the gates; face it. Hit A to slam the energy ball on the machine, destroying it and lowering the energy gates blocking the path and imprisoning the Yums. Have Maw eat all the Yums [5/38] and he will grow again. Leave him be and continue down the trail, eventually encountering the second turret. Destroy it like you did the first and head towards the intersection up ahead. An exceptionally large turret lies straight ahead, and we can't mess with it just yet. Instead, search through the grass to find another group of Yums. Feed them to Maw [15/38] and follow the dirt path instead. Slam the turret in your way. Up ahead is a rock ledge inaccessible to Maw. Have Frank jump up the platforms to reach the ledge, which is also home to seven Yums. Grab them individually with B, then press X to feed them to Maw [22/38]. Leash Maw and continue along. Another sentry will spot you and signal for another turret. Smash it and pass by the second Yum prison to find another pair of turrets; destroy both and proceed with Maw. A cutscene will start, introducing us to the Bulbous species. We cannot reach the "king" yet, so head 'round the bend towards a flowery field. Leave Maw behind and press B near a flying Bulbous to latch onto it. The creature will fly above the mountainside and over a body of water. Hang on tight and press B just as your ride passes a yellow Bulbous to latch onto the second one. As the second one eventually heads for a waterfall, press B when the blue Bulbous passes by to leash him. A pink Bulbous will quickly pass by not long after, so quickly grab onto it instead. Just as you reach dry land again, grab onto a green Bulbous. As it flies over the king's location, repeatedly tap A to let go, taking the energy ball with you. Smash the nearby generator to lower the plasma gates, leaving the king Bulbous quite vulnerable... Reunite with Maw and have him gobble up the fat Bulbous to gain it's ability [23/38]. Another "?" appears behind you, but continue past the throne to a dead end. Feed the five Yums to Maw [28/38] and return to the "?". See the little blue slime worms on the ground? Maw will use his new powers to electrify them. Use them like you would an energy ball to destroy the machine up ahead, opening the gate. Grab another electrified worm and drag it through the opened area back to the Yum prison. Free the Yums, then spoil their joys by feeding all of 'em to Maw [38/38]. 100% eaten! Maw will zap another batch of slime worms behind you; as you do so, a line of turrets fall to the ground ahead. Instead of eliminating them individually, grab an electrified worm and swing it at the sentry, destroying all hazards in one fell swoop! Return to the super turret earlier in the level. You'll find more worms here, which Maw will electrocute. Leash one and hurl it right at the turret, disabling it and allowing you to pass by unharmed. However, don't leave just yet! We still have to find the Snuffle in this level. Good thing we know it's whereabouts! Remember we found it behind the rock at the very start of the level? Grab an electrified worm before returning to the level's entrance. Slam it on the cage to free the Snuffle, then let Maw chow down [1/1]. Alright, NOW you can exit the level! ============================================================================== 3.03] CHAINDOWN [0303] ============================================================================== Creatures: Gastro, Gloober, Yum Amount: 34 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Descend the hill and approach the rocky terrain to find some Gloobers. These critters have a large shell not too unlike a snail, and Maw cannot ingest them with their shells on. Latch onto a Gloober and slam them with A to break their shell. From there, it's all game. Devour the Gloobers here as well as the ones to the left of your location and on the other side of the river [11/34]. Head up the slope to find an imprisoned giant Beetull. Ignore its cries for help as well as the pair of big turrets and walk on the cliffside. Leave Maw behind and leap across the series of platforms. Continue traversing the cliffside until you reach the top of the waterfalls in the center of the area. Walk around to the other side and head up to the hill to find a "?" and an energy ball. Grab it and hurl it at the Gastro on the adjacent ledge. As the Gastro falls down the waterfall, drop down with him and feed the poor thing to Maw [12/34]. Now that you have the Gastro's fire-breathing ability, you can torch any plantlife in the area. Of course, you will find Yums hiding in the trees, so it's a pretty good deal. Start off with the two batches of trees right next to you. Torch 'em and eat the Yums inside [19/34]. Don't forget to investigate the patch of trees on the far right side of the area, past the island inhabited with Gloobers. You'll have to follow the water's edge until you reach a small patch of land. Aside from the Yums hiding in the grass, there are a few in the batch of trees [24/34]. Even though the exit is open, it's best to eat the rest of the animals in this level. Go left from the base of the hill leading up to the Beetul. Follow it to a grove not only filled with more of those laughing plants from the Crash Site, but also more trees! Burn 'em down and feed the last remaining Yums to Maw [34/34]. 100% eaten! Kill the two laughing plants in the way and follow the trail to the Snuffle [1/1]. Heh, that was easy. Return to the Beetull in captivity and use Maw to destroy the harnesses with his flames. The prisoner will get his revenge by destroying the two turrets and the plasma gate beyond. Proceed to the exit. ============================================================================== 3.04] DIRTLANDS [0304] ============================================================================== Creatures: Puff-Tor, Yum Amount: 48 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ You will find several Puff-Tors in the quarry below. They inflate and float in the air before diving into the dirt in pursuit of slime worms. When you see a slime worm emerge from the ground, quickly leash it and repeatedly tap A to unearth it. Drag the slime worm to the flat rock in the center of the room and slam it a few times to stun it. Use the stunned worm to bait the Puff-Tors into eating it. When a Puff-Tor dives down, it'll crack its head on the rock and knock itself out. Hurry and let Maw eat the Puff-Tor while it's vulnerable. With Maw's new ability, he will be able to float in the air for a short while. However, this does not him ingest the other Puff-Tors. You will have to repeat the previous strategy to feed Maw the remaining two creatures [3/48]. Leash Maw and press A to float with him for a few seconds. Float up to the side of the cliff and hit X to detach as Maw dives into the ground. Use this technique to destroy the nearby generator, disabling the wall. Destroy the two rock spires to your left to find some well-hidden Yums [7/48]. Up ahead, your goal is to use Maw to leap across the rock pillars. However, first destroy the small rock spires on the ground below for six more Yums [13/48]. Jump across the rock pillars; the last one has a strange vent that releases gusts of wind. Jump into the wind to be pushed across the chasm towards a hill. You can destroy the giant red mushrooms with Maw's ability; they usually hold Yums. Break apart the mushrooms along the slope and the group at the top to find s'more Yums [20/48]. To the right is another air vent that you can use to reach your destination. Use the first gust of wind to land on a small rock platform. From here, go to the left and use the wind to eventually reach a large platform holding a Snuffle. Break its case and gobble it up [1/1]. When you cross the body of water, destroy the two rock spires for a few more tasty morsels [25/48]. Inspect the valley overhead; each of the trees here hold more Yums, so navigate each air vent to reach the trees, then destroy 'em and eat the food inside. There are a lot of Yums here, so be patient and collect them all [44/48]. Next up is a very tricky area. As you reach the next waterlogged area, drop down to the very bottom and walk to the right. You will find a rock spire in the corner. Smash it to reveal an air vent; ride it to reach a secret alcove. I only say that it's tricky because it's very easy to pass by the spot unnoticed. The trees here hold the final Yum [48/48]. 100% eaten! With that said and done, use the air vents to cross the area leading to another piece of machinery. Smash it to lower the energy gate and use the four air vents to reach the green ledge on the left of the cliff. Next, use the giant stone plataeu in the center as a stepping stone to reach the tiny platforms on the far side of the cliff. From here, a few jumps are needed to ultimately reach your goal. ============================================================================== 3.05] LOOFERLAND [0305] ============================================================================== Creatures: Bounty Hunter, Gloober, Loofer, Yum Amount: 92 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Walk down the path towards the source of all the commotion. That Loofer is scarier than I initially thought! With Maw cowering behind a rock, pass by the Loofer towards the "?". Leash the red urchin and unearth it. Toss it at the Loofer with Y to burn off all its feathers, then feed the bird to Maw [1/92]. The Loofer power is probably the coolest in the entire game. As Frank crawls on top of Maw's big head, you can use him to fire laser beams by hitting A! Blast everything in your sight, from rocks to pieces of the downed spaceship. Also eat the dazed bounty hunters lying on the ground, including the two in the crater [7/92]. Destroy the piece of wreckage to the right of the main path; doing so reveals a dead end and a Snuffle. Destroy its protective casing and devour it [1/1]. Follow the main path and destroy the rubble in the way. Continue into a clearing filled with red mushrooms and generators. Blast the Mushrooms and eat the Yums inside [15/92], then choose a path to take. I suggest going southeast from where you entered the area. Destroy the generator and blast the trees to find six more Yums [21/92]. After your meal, a spaceship will drop a row of turrets ahead of you. They're no match for your new attack! Shoot them all. Also destroy the two Gloober shells and eat the remains [23/92]. There are a few more Yums in the trees just past the turrets [29/92]. When you reach another mushroom-filled area, a ship will deploy some Bounty Hunters. Before they get a chance to attack, stun them with your lasers and devour them. Up ahead, eat the two Gloobers [36/92] and blast the turrets. Torch the trees to find a few more Yums [42/92] and break the generator up ahead to reach the clearing again. After the successful loop-around, take the southwest entrance this time. S'more turrets will be shipped off from the pesky spaceship, but you should wipe them out without breaking a sweat. Snack on the two Gloobers before moving on. The spaceship will now drop off four more bounty hunters, who protect the generator. Of course, their efforts go unachieved as Maw eats 'em [48/92]. Don't forget to snack on the handful of Yums residing near the mushroom patch [53/92]. Shoot the rocks and trees up ahead to find a few more Yums, then ingest the two Gloobers before breaking the generator up ahead [59/92]. The energy gate at the north end of the clearing has disappeared, so head on through. A band of spaceships will deploy a few more turrets along with a large platoon of bounty hunters. Dispose of the the turrets and inhale the bounty hunters [69/92]. Don't forget to laser the mushrooms to find a few hidden Yums [76/92]. Blast the generator to lower the energy gate on the side and proceed through. Those dang bounty hunters never rest, do they? More turrets and bounty hunters reside in this large field. Destroy the turrets and gobble up the bounty hunters [86/92]. Eradicate the last few Yums from their mushroomy homes to finish the level [92/92]. 100% eaten! Head towards the arrow hologram to encounter a large turret. We won't be able to attack it directly due to its homing missiles, so aim for the patch of red urchins in front of the arrow hologram to set off a chain reaction, obliterating the turret. Continue to the level's exit. ============================================================================== 3.06] MESAS [0306] ============================================================================== Creatures: Bulbous, Gloober, Puff-Tor, Yum Amount: 30 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ After taking care of the three Gloobers behind you [3/30], descend the hill and pass by the sentry. As Frank, smash the three turrets up ahead and stand on the nearby platform. As a white Bulbous passes overhead, grab onto its energy ball and hang on tight. Once it eventually nears a pink Bulbous, latch on and enjoy the right. Next, latch onto the green Bulbous that eventually passes by. As it flies around over the Puff-Tor, tap A when prompted to steal its energy ball. Use it to break the generator to the left of the Puff-Tor, which lowers the gate and releases the creature. There are a few slime worms near the entrance of the level, so return there with Maw. Leash onto a worm and bring it to the start of the level (the rocky plateau). Capture a Puff-Tor using methods used in past levels and eat it. Now that Maw has the Puff-Tor ability, destroy the trees just below your location and gobble up the Yums [8/30]. Pass by the sentry again (destroy it if you're feeling mean) and ride the air vent on the right side of the canyon wall. Land on the platform on the opposite side, then jump above to land on a mountaintop. If you look across the mountaintop, you'll find another ledge containing an encased Snuffle. Leap across the gap (use the air vent from below for an extra boost) to reach the surface. Break the case and eat the Snuffle [1/1]. Drop to the ground and pass by the flowery field. Just behind are a few more Gloobers; feed them to Maw [12/30]. Go down the path and ignore the trees to the left, instead bearing to the right to find another group of Gloobers [16/30]. Return to the trees and destroy them to find some Yums [20/30]. Even though Maw recognizes the level exit, we're far from finished here. Return to the air vent near the sentry and ride it to the platform. Jump up to the mountain peak and ride the various air vents across the valley. As you continue past four or so mountains, you will eventually reach a big Bulbous. Dethrone him to get the Bulbous ability for Maw [21/30]. Slide down the hill to the beginning of the level, then use Maw to zap a slime worm. As Frank, return to where you found the Puff-Tor and use the electrified worm on the nearby generator. Head up the hill to the left and use another slime worm to destroy yet another generator. Treat Maw to the scared Yums behind the energy gate [27/30]. Lastly, grab another electrified worm and descent the hill. Go to the right this time to find three imprisoned Gloobers. Smash the generator and feed the trio to Maw [30/30]. 100% eaten! Backtrack to the beginning of the level, where you will find a super turret across from the entrance. Shock a slime worm, then use it to dispose of the turret. Exit the level. ============================================================================== 3.07] BEETULL SMASH! [0307] ============================================================================== Creatures: Beetull, Gloober, Yum Amount: 52 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ The Beetull we first encountered in Chaindown seemed gargantuan, but now they aren't lookin' so big when compared to Maw. Regardless, it can still kick our tail. Go to the left and up a small slope to find three Gloobers [3/52]. Keep in mind that Maw can now ingest the Gloober entirely, shell in all. Head towards the cliffside and jump up the rock spires to reach the cliff. Feed the Gloobers to Maw [8/52] and reunite with your pal. There isn't anywhere else to go, so head past the Beetull and towards the "?". As the Beetull faces Maw, grab a red urchin and throw it at the Beetull. Stand in front of the energy gate; as the Beetull charges, press A to dodge as the creature smashes through. Success! Follow the Beetull into the next area, where you will find four more Gloobers [12/52]. Take another red urchin and repeat the previous strategy to destroy the second energy gate. Spill out into the open field and head to the left towards a piece of wreckage. Pick up the red urchin in front of it and use it to bait the Beetull again. Stand in front of the wreckage and dodge as the Beetull collides into it. The wreckage wins, as the creature is knocked unconscious. Have Maw snack on the monster to gain its ability! By pressing A, Maw can stampede through enemies and objects. It's a little difficult controlling him with the Left Analog Stick, but ram into the other Beetulls with Maw and eat them. Return to the previous area and use Maw's new power to smash apart the brown pods. Eat the Yums inside [18/52] and backtrack to the level's entrance. Bulldoze through the four pods and chow down [22/52]. Return to the clearing where you obtained the Beetull ability and charge at the boulder between the two waterfalls. As you smash through, aim for the energy gate as well. You will then lose control as a cinematic begins; Maw continues ramming through objects, such as turrets and more pods. The cutscene ends with you in a new area. You cannot smash through the red energy gate, so use Frank to navigate across the platforms onto the ledge. Now that you're on the other side, use an energy ball and lob it across the gap at the generator. The gate will be lowered. Regroup and inspect the air vent. It's propelling a group of Yums in the air, so we'll have to find a way to plug it up. Pass by the vent and pull the big boulder onto the vent to bring the Yums back down. Feed 'em to Maw [33/52]. Head back towards the arrow hologram and burst through the gate. More cinematic carnage! In this next area, jump onto the platforms to find a red urchin at the top. See the Beetull on the other side of the red gate? It is conveniently aimed right at the generator. Hurl the urchin at the creature to piss it off, and it'll destroy the machine and lower the gate. Gobble it up along with the second one not much farther away [35/52] and barrel through the energy gate. Once Maw painfully drags Frank to the next section of the level, reward him with more Yums and Gloobers [44/52]. Hop up the platforms and destroy the rock with the urchin, then leap across. Feed the Yums and Gloobers to Maw [51/52] and go right through the next gate. Once the cutscene ends and you're in the next section of the level, aim for the gray pillar in the center of the room and ram it. This will cause the Snuffle to fall off [1/1]. Easy pickings! Next, use Maw to smash the humongous brown boulder up against the cliff wall. Ram the trio of boulders just behind the pillar to reveal a series of platforms that Frank can climb. When you reach the top of the cliff, walk towards the gap and energy gate. As you can see, there is a rock to your right on a small ledge. Leash it and drag it into the gap, crushing the generator below. Pass through the opened gate and proceed along the cliff wall (slamming turrets as you go) until you come to an energy ball. Lob it at the generator to lower the red gate, then slide down and regroup with Maw. Crash through the gate in front of you. In the next area, have Maw devour the king Yum [52/52]. 100% eaten! Maw will grow to immense proportions as the level ends. ============================================================================== 3.08] PLANET MAW [0308] ============================================================================== Creatures: None Amount: 0 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ The level is Maw itself as he's big enough to traverse on! The final level is completely different from the others, as you have to rescue Maw from the Galactic Bounty Hunters. As a ship flies overhead, press B to grab on and hijack it. Frank is badass! Once inside the ship, fly around the edges of the area, looking for the ships with the long red tethers. Press A to drop bombs; bomb the ship non-stop to eventually blow it up. It's very chaotic and hard to tell when you are getting attacked, but enemy ships will fire small orange pellets at your ship to hurt it. If your ship is destroyed, Frank will land on top of Maw in perfect condition. Simply hijack another ship. Maw is being held captive by eight ships in total. Destroy all eight to finish the level and complete this short, but sweet game! (a little too short if you ask me...) ______________________________________________________________________________ 4] CREATURES [0400] ______________________________________________________________________________ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Yum --- Description: Small, incredibly cute pink blobs Ability: None Yums are the fodder of this game. They are found in great numbers in every level and pose no threat to Frank or Maw. In fact, it's not uncommon to feel bad as you feed these helpless critters to Maw! Yums are shy, scared critters that are often found hiding in tall grass, rocks, or trees. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Gastro ------ Description: Molten hot red lizard Ability: Breathe fire Gastros are volcanic lizards that are incredibly lazy, often found sleeping or slowly lugging itself around. Gastros are incredibly hot and must be first extinguished before ingesting. When you encounter a Gastro, use Frank's leash or an energy ball to knock it into some water before feeding it to Maw. When Maw has the Gastro ability, he can eat other Gastros without any trouble, but more noticeably, can breathe fire. Use this power to burn down trees, shrubs, or those annoying screaming plants seen every so often. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Bulbous ------- Description: Pudgy flying insects Ability: Electricity Despite their overweight appearance, Bulbous have no trouble flying through the air with their multiple wings. They are calm creatures that have a very scheduled life; flying back and forth, harvesting energy balls to be fed to their king. Bulbous are harmless and can actually be used to hitch a ride over long distances. Only the king Bulbous can be eaten by Maw. When Maw has the Bulbous ability, he can electrocute enemies with his strange black appendages. This technique is best put to use when zapping slime worms. Electrified slime worms act as forms of weapons, disabling turrets among other things. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Gloober ------- Description: Blue and yellow slugs Ability: None Gloobers share similarities with snails or hermit crabs, since they seek comfort inside of rock-hard shells. In Maw's early stages, he cannot ingest the Gloober's shell. Use Frank to smash the Gloober's shell apart, then feed the soft (and mortified) slug to Maw. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Puff-Tor -------- Description: Long, brown winged worms Ability: Float and smash Puff-Tors are vicious snake-like monsters that prey on slime worms. They puff their body up like a balloon, then deflate and dive towards the ground. They can also dig through soft earth. To catch a Puff-Tor, use a slime worm as bait by pulling it from the ground and placing it on solid terrain. As the Puff-Tor dives down to catch the worm, it incapacitates itself and can be eaten. When Maw has the Puff-Tor ability, he will float in the air like a balloon. When Frank jumps, he and Maw will float high in the air for a short period of time. You can use this ability, as well as air vents, to travel great distances. When in the air, press X for Maw to divebomb towards the ground, destroying any object below. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Loofer ------ Description: Tall, multi-eyed bird Ability: Laser beams You only encounter one Loofer in the entire game, which is a shame. While is may not look intimidating, it using tactics similar to a peacock to alarm predators, including Maw. To nullify the Loofer's scare tactics, toss a red urchin at it to fry its feathers off. Maw can then feed on the burnt bird. When Maw has the Loofer ability, you will be able to shoot lasers out of his many eyes by pressing A. Frank will also be riding Maw, so you can cruise through the entire level. You can destroy much of the landscape with Maw's laser beams along with enemies. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Bounty Hunter ------------- Description: Human-like in silver suit Ability: None You never know if the bounty hunters are human because they never remove their helmets. However, they certainly act like them. Bounty hunters are only seen in a few of the later levels, usually trying to put an end to your shenanigans. Bounty hunters will attack Maw and Frank with their assault rifles, but by this point Maw is too big to be hurt. Simply shoot them with your lasers or devour them in one fell swoop. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Beetull ------- Description: Giant plated beetle Ability: Ram Beetulls are gigantic bugs that looks an awful lot like a rhinoceros beetles. When angered, Beetuls will charge at enemies in attempt to gore them. However, they aren't too intelligent and often blindly charge at anything. Use red urchins to pester the Beetulls, then stand in front of an immovable object, like a piece of a downed spaceship. When the Beetull runs towards you, dodge as the Beetull hits it and is knocked out cold. When Maw has the Beetull ability, he can charge similar to Beetull itself. When leashed to Maw, press A for Maw to go into a frenzy and start charging. You can control him with the Left Analog Stick, but it is pretty difficult. Maw can bulldoze through various things with this ability, such as pods and energy gates. ______________________________________________________________________________ 5] UNLOCKABLES [0500] ______________________________________________________________________________ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Gamerpic 1 ---------- Complete "Crash Site" ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Gamerpic 2 ---------- Complete "Dirtlands" ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Dashboard Theme --------------- Complete the entire game ______________________________________________________________________________ 6] ACHIEVEMENTS [0600] ______________________________________________________________________________ Here are all the achievements found in the game, in alphabetical order. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ All Growed Up (10) ------------------ Help Maw grow for the first time ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Destroyer of Yums (10) ---------------------- Find and eat 200 Yums ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Energize (20) ------------- With the Bulbous power, electrify at least 50 objects and/or creatures ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Eyes of the Beloofer (20) ------------------------- With the Loofer power, laser at least 125 objects and/or creatures ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Ground and Pound (20) --------------------- With the Puff-Tor power, smash at least 50 objects and/or creatures ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Hard-Headed (20) ---------------- With the Beetull power, ram at least 50 objects and/or creatures ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Little Planet of Horrors (20) ----------------------------- Get 100% Eaten in each level ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Six Meals a Day (20) -------------------- Play during Maw's six meal times: Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch, Dunch, Dinner, and Midnight Feast ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Tastes Like Snot (10) --------------------- Find and eat 30 Gloobers ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ That's Just Gross (10) ---------------------- Find and eat all the Snuffles ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Time for BBQ (20) ----------------- With the Gastro power, flame at least 150 objects and/or creatures ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ You're totally MAWESOME!
