Whether you’re just starting off your ballooning journey or you’ve been tossing boxes around for a while, there’s going to be something here to help you out. These are the best hints, tips and cheats for The Late D. Flate’s Great Estate.
You don’t have to get the stars the first time
While collecting the stars is important, since you’ll use them to unlock later levels, you don’t have to try and get them all in one go. Finish the level, with whatever stars you’ve got, then move on to the next. If you need the stars later, head back and try and get them then.
Scope out the level, then restart
You can zoom out by pinching on the screen and it’s a great way to get an overview of the level. You can spy out possible problems and see exactly where you need to go. Once you’ve done that, tap the restart button, since the clock will already have been ticking while you looked at what’s what.
Figure out the order
Sometimes you need to shake up the order that you solve problems – it’s not always the closest ones you need to fathom out first. Instead, check the path the box is going to take and think about the order that you’re going to have to open doors and move things around for it.
Does it need more?
There are objects that need more than one balloon to pick them up. In fact, there are objects that need several. If something has a connection point and isn’t moving, try sticking a couple more balloons on it and seeing what happens. You can usually get a good idea if you’ll need multiple balloons from the challenges that get you the stars.
Use curves and swing
There are times when you need to move the box and drop it into specific places. It can sometimes be a little tricky, so look for curves in the roof that will allow your balloon to move in that direction. You can also use the swing from picking up the box to move it in a new direction.
