  • Start with two bare-handed gruntz and (trapped) two sword gruntz and a club grunt .
  • Bare-handed grunt pickz up the gravity bootz (Tool #1).
  • Gravity bootz grunt walkz toward the green hold switch .
  • Bare-handed grunt
    • When Gravity bootz grunt is almost to the green hold switch
    • walkz over the (now lowered) green pyramid
    • stepz on the black one-time switch (lowerz two black pyramidz south of the bridge)
    • then walkz toward the arrowz
  • Gravity bootz grunt
    • hitz the black one-time switch on the left (lowerz two black pyramidz north of the bridge)
    • waitz on the spikez opposite the arrowz
    • (his health is not important, he diez anyway).
  • Bare-handed grunt
    • crossez the arrowz between four enemy gruntz
    • passez black pyramidz toward the moving bridge
    • In the middle of the bridge just walk into the water toward the orange up/down switch (Orange Switch #1)
    • Throughout this level you have to hit a total of six orange up/down switchez to reach the '?' switch
    • After hitting the switch, walk back to the bridge and go between four more enemy gruntz to the CheckPoint Switch
    • Leave the spongegun for the gravity bootz grunt
  • Gravity bootz grunt quickly getz to the sponge gun (Tool #2).
  • Spongegun grunt
    • shootz the right enemy grunt into the hole
    • walkz to the single arrow near the orange up/down switch
    • as the enemy grunt is ready to shoot, stepz on the arrow and when the shot arrivez, stepz on it again
    • he will be shot onto the orange up/down switch (Orange Switch #2)
    • then shootz the left enemy grunt into the hole
    • shootz the bare-handed grunt over the arrow by shooting at the arrow, as the bare-handed grunt stepz onto the arrow ... to the gauntletz (Tool #3) ... and together they hit the CheckPoint Switchez
  • Gauntletz grunt crossez over the upper part of the breakable bridge and waitz in front of the arrow
  • Spongegun grunt
    • Sacrificez himself; he walkz over the yellow toggle switch toward the end of the bridge and shootz at the arrow (certain death #1)
    • It may be possible for the spongegun grunt to move next to the arrow where the gauntletz were, and shoot at the empty space below the arrow and have the gauntletz grunt step into space, to arrive at the same place.
    • Don't do it, even if you can!
    • Later on, you will have one too many active gruntz (one in the wrong place, where he doez absolutely no good) and be unable to add a grunt where you need one. Then you will have to come back to this grunt, and send him off into space anyway ... after you have re-played from your last SAVE.

    • which lowerz the black pyramidz in front of him
    • and raisez those behind him!
    • (New gruntz cannot enter the game play area.)
  • Shovel grunt
    • proceedz to the platform with the four purple multi-grunt switchez
    • fillz all the holez and waitz on one of the switchez
  • Put Toob , Straw and Shield on the purple multi-grunt switchez
  • Gauntletz grunt
    • breakz the rock crystalz (all containing a keg of Zap Cola )
      which he can reach without taking more than one keg
      (he probably doesn't need any refreshmentz)
    • walkz toward the center, stepz on one of the arrowz and getz the resurrection scroll Toy #6
    • usez the scroll (and you get ten more gruntz); you need to have fifteen gruntz
  • One by one the gruntz
    • take a keg of Zap Cola
    • get a tool (for example ) Toolz #12 through #21
    • and a toy (for example ) Toyz #7 through #16
  • Position your GunHat grunt near the entrance of the pyramid maze, and kill two enemy gruntz from there
  • Move all your gruntz to the final CheckPoint Switch area
  • Position the gunhat grunt opposite the enemy grunt and you can kill him before the CheckPoint Pyramidz go down
  • When the battle is over you need at least seven gruntz to finish the game; definitely need gauntletz grunt , shovel grunt and (usually) spongegun grunt , so position them on the last three platez
  • If the battle doez not go so well, there is no way to bake some new gruntz and get them into the game in order to get the required seven, so the straw grunt should not be one of the 'final four'
  • Put sword grunt , club grunt , rockz grunt and gun hat gruntz in front (the boomerang grunt is less than worthless in the upcoming melee ... harmz more buddiez than enemiez. Place him in the row of three CheckPoint Switchez just in front of your three required gruntz, to defend them)
  • Use your toyz and attack one enemy gruntz with two of your gruntz
  • When the pyramidz go down, give one enemy a toy and together kill the other one
  • Fill all fifteen CheckPoint Switchez and let the battle begin.
  • After the battle is over, 8 of your 15 may be Goo Puddlez (Deathz #4 through #11).
  • Put four gruntz (preferably not Gauntletz grunt , Shovel grunt , spongegun grunt or Warpstone grunt ) on the four purple multi-grunt switchez around the castle (if eight or more survived the melee, leave them there for the rest of the game)
  • Shovel grunt enterz the narrow corridor toward the telescope and hidden behind the third stack of cratez he digz up the last orange up/down switch (Orange Switch #6)
  • Step on the orange up/down switch , walk back and fill the two holez near the castle
  • One of the other gruntz (the gravity bootz grunt would be an excellent choice!) pickz up the warpstone and waitz near the CheckPoint Switch at the eastern point
  • Gauntletz grunt collectz the seven coinz (#2 through #8) around the castle and breakz the hidden rock crystal behind the last three pilez of cratez, to reveal the '?' switch which givez access to the red warp.
    Ideally, he will be the grunt to step on the switch, and doesn't have to be part of "the away team".
  • Before hitting the secret ? switch gather five gruntz (but it can be done with just four, if you use the bridge) in front of the CheckPoint Pyramidz
  • This must include the sponge grunt (not necessary, in the four gruntz solution) and the warpstone grunt
  • If you didn't close the holez along the rolling rockz, take the shovel grunt with you. (If you didn't fill them in, and have no shovel grunt ... it may be "re-start time!" The four grunt solution is easiest if one of two holez (on either side of a certain arrow ) along the southern edge of the rolling rockz area be filled in . That makez for a shorter, safer walk on the bridge.)
  • Don't take the gravity bootz grunt in the five grunt solution ...
    you cannot shoot him over the arrow (but he may take a detour)
  • When the CheckPoint Pyramid openz , walk down and pass the rolling rockz toward the red warp
  • Besidez the Warpstone grunt , two gruntz (no special tool requirementz) are required to stand on purple multi-grunt switchez and one grunt (no special tool requirement) is required to trigger the red warp (certain death #2). The Warpstone grunt goez through the red warp, where he will hit the CheckPoint Switch , get the warpletter, collect the coin #9 and enter the return red warp
  • When the warpstone gruntz has returned from the red warp, he (and the Gauntletz grunt , if in the group) walk back to the battle field and enter the green wormhole on the right
  • After returning from the red warp put some gruntz on the four purple multi-grunt switchez (again, if necessary)
  • Gauntletz grunt walkz back to the castle and breakz the center brickz of the lower row. (He's killed ... certain death #3.)
  • Warpstone grunt bringz warpstone to King.
  • Fewest possible survivorz ... 5; most possible survivorz ... 13.
