General Strategy[edit | edit source]

Advanced Lillipads is, as the name implies, a more complicated version of the previous stage. Many more elements come together in this stage including slides and a new concept: moving platforms. Moving platforms can be jumped on, or fallen on, and ridden back and forth. The collection of slides at the top must be carefully navigated in order to complete the framework on the very top platform.

As a general strategy, work your way up the left hand platforms to the mutant by the joystick. Grab the joystick in order to capture the mutant and jump up the column of platforms to the very top. Avoiding the unhappy mutants, and jumping over the slide centers, cross the platform and walk along every inch of it until you are on the other side. Drop down to the tiny island off the right side, and then jump back to the platform. Fall down any one of the center three slides to complete those islands. Now you must jump to the moving platform that floats underneath the candle holder. Use it to get to the right side. Complete all of the islands above you, then carefully drop down to the lower platforms. After completing the group of four platforms in the bottom right corner, make your way to the center column of platforms beneath the slides.

Critical Points[edit | edit source]

  1. According to the instruction manual, Bounty Bob is allergic to certain martini mixes, and the flashing glass above his head at the start point happens to contain such a mix. Do not try to collect it or Bob will lose one life.
  2. The mutant that poses the biggest threat is the one to the right of the joystick. He is dangerous because you might hit him with your head from below if you don't time your jumps properly.
  3. Getting off the island at the bottom of the slides and over to the moving platform takes a bit of practice. It is best to jump over to the moving platform when it is still on its way over to you. If you jump too late, you will miss it and fall to your death.
