Is it possible to get a star on Lvl 1 without using the glitch? The best I can do is 26/27 and no star. :(

Great videos, btw. Very impressive!

You should have 28 blocks before the portal, and you only need to leave one behind as a platform to reach it, giving you 27.

28?! Oh. I'd better go and take (yet) another look, then. :)

ADDENDUM: Found it!

Phew, just got green on Lost Slimes, that was a tough one! I'm running out of ideas on how to get more than 17 green stars. If anyone manages to find one that I haven't, I'll be impressed!

And double post for level 040 green star. I'm calling it, the official green star count is 18.

Those - the ones I've seen anyway - are incredible solutions. I'm avoiding watching your vids though as I'd like to work the solutions out for myself. Good job, sheepdude!

Yeah, nothing much to add, you made an unbelievable work there.

And you find some green stars we never though of (like 040), but it totally make sense when I saw you doing this!
Awesome!

GREAT news! I just found a technique for a green star on level 026 - check it out, it's very tricky! That bumps the total green star count up to 19... think we can make it to 20?

green on 26??

I gave it a go for 20 minutes then watched your video.. wow

I would have never tried that... impressive.

I got 29 blocks on level 15 "015 TOO MUCH BLOCKS [28/24]" if anyone wants I'll upload a vid...

EDIT, wait I see you missed the wooden one at the top, I think you should change the count to 29...

Yeah I know 29 is possible, I wrote a little comment under the video explaining that I missed the block.

I'm going to keep the block counts at WHAT I ACHIEVED, not what's possible, since for some of the levels we don't really know the maximum. For instance, level 027 PATH FOR A SLIME I used a block when I didn't need to, 032 CRYSTAL CASTLE it's possible to get more blocks if you build under the obsidian blocks that normally fall and block your path, and many of the levels with burning wood blocks have potential for more.

So challenge yourself to get more blocks than I did, if you want, but you won't have much to show for it (unless you can change a yellow into a green).

Is it possible to get a green star in every level?

No. This is evident from certain levels (such as 003) where you can collect every block in the level and only receive a Yellow Star. Green Stars are only possible on certain levels, where you can be clever and collect more than the Yellow Star criterion. I have only found 19 of them, and I believe that those are the only Green Stars you can achieve. (Although through a previous glitch with sand blocks it was possible to get as many as 29 Green Stars. I have videos of these but haven't released them)

I know this thread is old, but I love the game and Ive simply wasted too much time on 21. Anyone have something easier? I dont care about green, just a nice easy way to yellow. I can only end with 12 :s The dev must have planned for a way to finish with 13 that hopefully does not involve jumping through the blocks.

You've probably figured it out by now, but for closure, you can Yellow level 21 by collecting all the blocks and then returning the way you came. Make sure you don't block yourself in (collect the block in the bottom-left corner last so the obsidian block doesn't fall and block the path), and you'll have to leave one block behind to climb back up to the portal.

By jumping through the two falling vertical columns you don't have to leave a block behind, allowing for the Green star, but if you just want yellow, you don't need to bother.

That doesnt help as I still need an easier way of getting the one en route to the box. Thats the one I cannot grab as I cannot time my jumps through the blocks, at all.

Here is a solution that requires no jump-timing:

Thank you. It seems so obvious now. I was trying something long those lines, but I never let the two rows line up which is why it never worked.

Thanks a lot sheepdude, your videos are a light in my "mental mazeblock", really helpful.
The negatives on your views are ridiculous, just amazed with 021 Lost Slimes, and 026 Collateral Damage :eek:(certainly exploits/glitches but who the ♥♥♥♥ cares??)
Nice work

Thank you all, I do appreciate reading that the videos helped.

When I started playing BTM game these forums weren't up, and I would ask for advice in the steam group chat, only to realize that nobody knew how to get the stars! Some people had helpful advice, especially the developers, but I realized that I was on the cutting edge of star discovery, so I challenged myself to make the videos.

I know they're not perfect - I'm well aware that some solutions are much easier than the ones I recorded, but oh well! As long as it works, right? =)

Oh and if you like the videos, I do appreciate receiving reputation on my steam forum account. It's no biggy but it makes me smile =)

Part of me is ashamed for using these videos to cheat on about four or five stars. But with how clever your solutions are, I don't think I mind as much as I would have.

Man, even now I am chasing that elusive 20th green star - there has to be SOMETHING to make it possible...
