|The 1st world reminded me a lot of Sunshine, but the 2nd world has major Psychonauts vibes. There's a lot of stealth and adventure elements. |
Act 2 is a lot of running around collecting clues and finding keys to unlock doors, while you act in a movie called "Murder on the Owl Express". There's a murder of crows that are investigating a murder and asking everyone all sorts of personal questions.
The acts in world 2 switch back and forth between helping the 2 movie film rivals. In Act 3 you help DJ Grooves by becoming a popular diva and going around gaining fan club points by doing interviews with DJ Grooves and getting your photo taken and stuff.
I went into world 3 as soon as I unlocked it. It's actually back in the first room where you started the game, where the pillow pile is. The Subcon Forest is a really dark, creepy level that kinda has Banjo-Kazooie-esque level design but with more Psychonauts-esque creepyness. The first thing I did there was climb the giant tree that goes up WAY higher than I imagined. I fell off a lot, but eventually finally made it to the top to find a relic.
It took me a while to figure out how to destroy the ice blocks in this world, until I realized that the big fruits you can carry around become explosive bombs when a bomb ghost merges into it. At first I thought of trying the witch hat projectiles to destroy the ice, then I tried the Ice Hat I recently got in world 2 to destroy it with a ground pound... seems like the only purpose of the ice hat is to specifically bounce off the platforms with the ice symbol on them.
