Just another day.

Often in Life+, there are multiple ways around a challenge.

Did they fall in?

Some paths of action might seem like good ideas at first, like the obvious choice here is to jump over the gap safely.

Oh man, I fell in too.

But, you'll fall short with a distance this wide just a casual, every day jump.

I made it out okay, but at what cost?

This much damage usually isn't a big deal, but...

It cost dearly.

You can be ambushed at any time, so it helps to have as much health as possible. That's just common sense.

To be honest, this is the kind of thing that can be gotten through pretty easily, but to make it easier on yourself, explore everywhere. You'll find lots of helpful things. Above all others though, you look for square things that glow and bob up and down.

It's a still shot, but it does bob up and down.

When picked up, these items unlock certain latent abilities that help Double O in his daily life. This particular one lets you dash by double tapping a directional button. You move almost twice as fast while dashing, which means your jumps are equally enhanced.

The crouching is for dramatic effect.

Of course, you could always just attack everything in your path and forget about having to avoid enemies all together, so it all depends on how you want to play.

Trying to crouch while running makes you slide, too.

How's the new dirt look?
