Comment if you found one of the missing things: Planet Shrine, ☯ Levels, some legacy levels (I need to go through and find the 2 or 3 I’m missing).
I noticed there are signs in the secret classic levels, but I can’t read Japanese. I will try to translate them with Google Translate later.
It looks like gun colors are back, and you change them by finding an item.
Pictures will be added as the guide is worked on.
Secrets for each world will be updated as I work on them.
I am publishing this guide before it is finished to get help with finding the stuff I’m missing.
The three stars:
Blue: Get it for just completing a level
Red: Get it by beating the level with the “Q” time. This can be checked when you enter a level. It will show you time followed by a “Q”. If it shows “PB” instead, hit space to toggle to “Q” time.
Yellow: Get it by getting 100% accuracy. Not all enemies need to be hit in order to complete a level. (More details later)
Unlike Lovely Planet 1, Lovely Planet 2 doesn’t really have very short level par times or very difficult shot to make to get 100% accuracy, so this guide won’t cover how to get them for each level. If you have trouble with time or accuracy, see the Movement section.
If you are missing stars after completing a world, and you got the stars in every level, then you missed the secret levels. See Secrets Introduction for more info.
This game also has strafe walking (is this the right term?). Strafe walking is when you walk by pressing 2 directions at once, as long as they don’t cancel out. So if you press forward and right you will move faster, you just need to turn and walk diagonally. This can be very helpful if you need that extra bit of speed for the speed star, getting a faster time, or jumping farther. This may be bug and patched out latter, but since it is a very well known bug to any game dev, it’s probably intentional.
To get to the secret level you need to find and shoot the civilians that are green. They are located off the regular level path.
Shooting it will bring you to a secret level after a delay (don’t die or the level will reset).
In each secret level there will be either a item you need to find for an achievement or a small green civilian (not sure if there is always one or the other). Shooting the small green civilian will bring you to a Legacy Level.
They can be very tricky to find so keep an eye out! Look behind things, on top of things, or inside red blobs.
For the secret items, you just need to walk up to it to get the achievement for it since you can’t collect it.
