Advent 2015 - Mugs - The Gingerbread Man

Post by Jorge22 » 14 Dec 2015 10:24

I have a beginner's problem: I don't know how to begin.

I've been all over the place several times to no avail.

Find the board with 3rd price and go few steps further to the W. On the left there will be block (chimney) and the pines. Go between block and pine and climb to it. Now you have to do a tricky move to the jumpswitch (go around the house).

This is so much fun, but needless to say I'm stuck! Just got the gingerbread man key and can see the receptacle high up on a house. I can't see how to get there from above so assume I need the key to get into the house. Where is it?

Look at the pots and barrels at the bottom of the stairs where you've found the GBM's Body

It seems you missed something in the place you have used them for the first time.

Hmmm... I finished! But I only have 26 minutes in stats, that house with these nice transparent windows is left unexplored and I only have 3 secrets (from the houses of 3rd, 2nd and 1st prize). Possibly I took a massive shortcut but I have no idea where.

sorry DJ - there's nothing massive about this game (true "mugs" shorty! :D). So you have not missed anything other than the 4th secret.
there are actually 2 secrets in the 1st prize section

the switch is for a raising block - try moving something onto the block before you use that switch, and Peter, that's kind of a rotten thing to say....next year you can play without me.

sweet, sweet game, Pat - the moves to place the GBM were tricky fun and the point of the "sludge" (think melted chocolate) is to put Lara in a precarious situation....nothing new in that, including in an Advent level.

{{{hugs}}} and thanks, Pat :)

I cannot find that fourth secret in the 1st prize section, I only have that one from the table, but I'm missing the other. Could you help?
