Roly Poly Eliminator 2 Instructions

The control scheme for Roly Poly Eliminator 2 is very typical of physics games. The game is played entirely with the mouse: from cutting off chains; making boxes and blocks suspended in the air magically disappear; and to do just about everything else in between. HOWEVER, this game is MORE than just pointing and clicking. Timing, sequence of actions, etc. - all of these and MORE are crucial for this physics game. Let's take a closer look at it.

Roly Poly Eliminator 2 Walkthrough

Roly Poly physics games - created by Johnny-K, they are a notch or two MORE elaborate than your average physics games. And in Roly Poly Eliminator 2, the monsters are now taking the center stage... BUT in a painful and bloody way! Using your mouse to beat the levels, you need to kill all of the monsters on the screen. Having played the game, these guys can only be killed in 2 ways: drop or slam them on spikes or throw bombs at these little buggers. HOWEVER, getting there is NOT very easy. You need to remove blocks; pop bubbles that blows away almost everything around them; slash chains; and those are just to name a few. And to make things even more challenging, especially in the later levels, you need to time your moves perfectly and they have to be in the RIGHT sequence. Well, sometimes, you can get lucky and get away with improper sequences of moves. I have done that in some of the harder levels. BUT being an elaborate physics game, I wouldn't trust luck too much if I were you.

The challenges in Roly Poly Eliminator 2 could alternate between triggering chain reactions; using your lightning fast reflexes to click and set up a sequence of moves which you won't be able to pull off if you slow down for a second; and those are just to name a few. Here's an example: at different points, you need to nudge a bubble forward using an explosion. In turn, you have to burst that bubble and use the explosion to throw or blast something that is now reachable. And that's the simpler of the bunch of puzzles you will face. And this is NOT surprising at all: physics problems and puzzle solving is a Johnny-K specialty.

Roly Poly Eliminator 2 has advanced A LOT compared to the original physics game in the series especially in the personality and presentation department... and the game play and puzzle mechanics have also received some screw tightening. If you are going to play this after sinking your head on other Roly Poly physics games series - Cannon, Monsters, etc., the changes and evolution will come off as natural. HOWEVER, if you are jumping from the Eliminator 1 to 2, you will surely notice the differences.

As for strategy, well, it's hard to spill the beans without going step-by-step... which would ruin the fun. So if I'm going to give you a piece of advice, here it is: take your time. Look at where the spikes; the explosives; boxes and everything else are located. The first few levels should serve as a good introduction to what these things can do: bombs can... well, explode and set a bucket of oil in fire (either way, it will kill the monsters); the bubbles burst and blast those that are around it; cutting chains will drop whatever is attached to it; and so on. HOWEVER, do NOT think for too long as that will eat up your score. Your score for a level is dictated by that countdown on the top left part of the screen.

Now, if you are really stumped, there's always the walkthrough. Just click on the Solution button at the lower left corner of the screen and it will pull up a video walkthrough. BUT hey, do NOT abuse it. Just use it when you are really UNABLE to make progress. Throughout the 50 levels, I used it about twice - in Level 39 and Level 48... and it took me about an hour and A LOT of cursing and keyboard banging to get through the whole stuff. BUT yeah, it is all worth the trouble.
