The toughest challenge this side of the galaxy
What are tricks?
There are a large number of objects in the game. These all have their own specific behaviour which is well-defined and usually explained in the Cast of Characters (available in the game). However, sometimes these objects interact with each other in unexpected ways or depending on your timing you can get them to behave slightly differently than expected. These are not bugs in the game, but just less common behaviour that you can use to your advantage. In fact, some levels can only be solved by using 'tricky' behaviour.
Different people have different opinions about what is 'expected behaviour', so it's not always easy to classify something as a trick. However, below you will find recordings that show behaviour that we consider to be 'tricky'. To view these tricks, you can use the same instructions that are available for viewing solutions.
If you want to practice the trick-moves yourself, you can download the corresponding 'tricks' levelset at the level page.
If you have not seen any of the tricks before, you might want to download all tricks in one zip-file instead of downloading the individual tricks below.
Please note that most tricks require reasonably accurate timing, so you might need some practice before you can use them. (You can always change the speed at which the game runs by clicking on the 'Configure Igor' option in the main menu, or using the '[' and ']' keys while playing).
