I can't get Pehua 4/4.
I don't see what I'm suppose to jump onto. Do I try to jump over with the spikes down or up?

After hitting the switch to lower the spikes, get the ball halfway along the room, and if you look at the ledge on the other side you'll notice small wooden pegs on it. Jump onto the ball, then onto one of the two lower pegs. Then onto the higher peg, then up onto the ledge.

I'm a newcomer to the forums and to The Ball, saw your walkthrough for it and would like to print it, but how do I do this please? Also, starting the game, I find the controller, but where's the ball and how do I get to it.

Thanks

I think I copy and pasted to something like note pad. then printed it.


Keep walking all will become clear. You can't miss the Ball.

That's probably the best way; copy and then paste into word processing software.

Also, yay! Topic is now sticky!

To quote the text from that very secret: "There must be a better way, I thought.".
After dying a whole bunch of times, I finally managed to get this secret.
At first I tried pulling the ball while on top of it, rolling it accross the spikes, but I kept felling off.
It's only the first level, more or less a tutorial, so it's hard to believe having to fiddle around with the physics to get the Ball in the proper spot in the middle, then doing some dangerous jumps, is the right way to solve this puzzle.
After playing through the level once, it is easy to race through it again, get all the secrets, without ever having to come close to death, except for this spot...
It feels like some bad game design, so aren't we simply missing something?

I seriously doubt it; there's absolutely nothing more to the room. It's not bad game design, it's just a challenge. The secrets encourage subsequent playthroughs, and so I think this is justified. It's not that difficult, anyway.

I played through the game now (the story mode).
From that perspective, only going for completing the secrets you missed afterwards, it's not that bad.
You are expected to be able to manipulate The Ball a bit better later on to solve puzzles, and to defeat enemies, but it never becomes too difficult.
Also you're able to jump pretty far in this game, control your jumps pretty well, so it's mostly just getting the ball in the right spot after you get the platform jumping down.
I really was expecting the wooden pegs to slide out and form a bridge or something.

Anyway, I played through the game in one sitting, so yes, I definitely like it.
I got a few more than half of the secrets, and I'll also try to get the other Achievements.
I wouldn't mind an expansion or sequel along the line either.

It's gone now, but there was a thread on this forum where Hourences said that they have plans for more Survival maps (meh), and a campaign stage set as an alternate to part of Oztoc that would feature an old Spanish galleon in an underground cavern. I really hope they go through with that idea!
