There are 5 + the hub world. They're about the size of the levels in Tooie, some bigger than others.


OK, cheers. Decent size then, but not going to drag on beyond its welcome. Good.

The world 3 Kartos stage :dread: :(

Boss fight is pretty decent though.

The state of the Planker pagie in World 3. :dread: This is Beaver Bother levels of broken.

EDIT: You can drag them via your tongue? FFFUUUU

It's not too bad when you realise you can keep circling round the course if you choose the correct track near the end.

Thats part of my problem. I just loose everything I collect because I keep hitting things. The camera is confusing me (it moves so much) and despite slowing down and jumping I keep on ending up on the wrong levels. I'm sure at points I'm falling through the track. I really liked the previous two but this one :dread: Doesn't feel polished.

I'm not so keen on the level itself. Its got some good sections but the place feels a bit featureless. I like the transformation and the moveset has some neat ideas going on now.

Despite its clumsiness I'm bloody loving it. :wub:

I'm sensing a theme with these Kartos courses. :lol: I didn't mind the first two. Have only had a small wander around the third world so far but I absolutely LOVE the music in this world.

Expanded Tribalstack Tropics is massive and I think I'm almost done with the first World. I'll return to it when I have more moves and some stuff are bloody well hidden! :datass:

World 3 is perhaps my favourite so far.

Do you mean the course itself or what happens after? Because I quite liked the course.

Enjoyed the Rextro game here to.

The course. My best run is still 6 gems off-target.

So is this game just like banjo, or is there anything else to it?

I'm really loving world 3 so far. It's more akin to a Banjo world of old than world 1 & 2. And I must stress again how great the music is in this world. I also can't get enough of that Ghost Writer jingle that plays when you collect one. It's just delightful.

Still haven't found Kartos, though.

Just did Rampos in World 1. That was easier than posts in here seemed to make it out to be. If you just stop rolling and jump upwards rather than trying to jump forward over the logs it doesn't seem to be problematic at all. Only issue I had was I kept hitting the fire at the top. v_v

Who thought the World 5 Kartos course was a good idea? How did that get through any kind of testing?

The world 3 boss was pretty good! However, the music! OMG, there were some serious Donkey Kong Country vibes during that battle.

I don't see the problem with that world's Kartos, was it the looping section at the end? I quite enjoyed it, actually.

It's what Banjo-Kazooie 3 should have been.

World 3 boss is the best boss in the game so far.

Only 1 Pagie and 9 quills left in World 3. It's the one behind the shattered glass that I can't seem to get without a later move. I really hope all 9 quills are behind that glass. :dread: I've searched all over and I'm pretty sure I've gotten the rest. Gonna be a nightmare if I'm missing 1 or 2. Overall that was my favourite world so far. Really enjoyed it and one final shoutout for the amazing music that came with it.

I can't find the way to world 4. :x

I have got six Pagies and twenty Quills left in World 1, but I cannot go any further as I need some new moves or unlocked the special move (like the one at the top of Tribalstack Tropics with the black box).

This game is fantastic. :wub:
