...what do you do?

I've been trapped in the same #&$%* level for a very long time now, which is frustrating me, but so many others seem to enjoy the game without frustration. So I ask you this...

If you get stuck in Toki Tori--truly stuck--what do you do?

I don't want to go to gamefaqs or something because I feel like that will take all the fun out of the game. The puzzle element is the ONLY thing Toki Tori offers. It's not like Zelda, or something, for example, where even if you look up the solution to a puzzle, you still need to fight baddies, collect items, make your way in/out of a temple, etc. There are other things you accomplish along the way that don't make you feel too bad for having cheated a bit.

But this game is a bit different. If you can't figure out the puzzle, and your wildcard is stuck on a DIFFERENT unsolvable puzzle, do you bite the bullet and look up the answer? If so, does that render the game less fun? Or do you just walk around trying absolutely everything until you are reduced to a mess of frustration and tears?

I have been in the same conundrum with Lit for a long while now. I'm tempted to go to GameFAQs because while it will ruin one level for me, it will at least allow me to enjoy other level(s). I don't see what other option there is unless you're willing to replay it over and over ad nauseum.

Come on, friends,
To the bear arcades again.

When I got stuck to the point you're describing, I simply stopped playing it and have no intention on going back.

Edit: Not really. I love that little yellow fellow too much. One day I will return and conquer this bastard of a game.

Mod Edit: Watch your language!

The Toki Tori website offers gentle hints which will not spoil the game like GameFAQs. Why not give that a try? :-p

I just stopped at that point and found that the hype wasn't true for me.

I share your pain having experienced the same thing with Toki Tori myself.

I think the game is fantastic so didn't want to take any of that away by looking up solutions, so I just kept trying and trying until I cracked it and believe me, the satisfaction is well worth the pain that goes before it!

I guess you could say that is the only downside of games like Toki Tori, you will eventually crack it through trial and error, still, LIT is my most anticipated WiiWare release at the moment so that aspect clearly doesn't bother me too much.

I used to put the game down for a few days and then pick it up again. Often it's just a matter of changing your thinking about how certain things work in a level. I never used any kind of walkthrough or cheat, but then I have my wildcard on a Sewer level I couldn't fathom and got stuck on the 2nd or 3rd underwater one and it's been months since I loaded it up (mostly due to space issues; now that's not an obstacle I may have another look as the time away could give me a fresh perspective).

Being stuck on a level for ages and then beating it is probably one of the most satisfying things about the game; getting stuck can be incredibly frustrating however!
