About halfway through the chicory: A colorful fairy tale, you will be interrupted by a group of messengers of beetles who ask for your presence in the underground part of the holiday for their Queen Drosera. After heading north to the town of Dinners, you will go east to the Grub Caverns – from there you will reach the Feast, but not before solving some traverse puzzles.
Go down the stairs and enter the depths of the Grub Caverns – you will move to the right along the cutscene and you will come across these crab bugs with large cubic shells. We usually recommend painting the entire environment to help you visually, but you’ll see that these bugs eat any color near them. It might seem annoying at first, but how you take advantage of these bugs is at the heart of the Grub Caverns.
On the next screen you will see that you will have to use the bug as a platform that will take you across the gap – The trick with these mistakes is to draw lines from them where you want. Start painting exactly where they stand to grab their attention, and they will follow the line and clear the trail, ideally ending exactly where you want them. You can also stand on their shells as they move, so they work great as moving platforms.
This is the basis of solving puzzles in Grub Caverns, but this section brings some complications. Sometimes you have to jump from error to error and you have to arrange situations where you can platform between them. You will also need to paint the vines to swim, usually to find a better altitude to stand on the beetle, but sometimes these beetles can devour the colors to your anger. Overall, the challenging altitude is difficult due to the artistic style of the game.
Eventually, you’ll have to combine all of this with puzzles that involve exploding balls. It will be difficult to finalize them – in some cases you will have to push paintball for a mistake, and even though it may not look like you can both fit on the platform, it will work. On one screen, you are separated from the beetle and paintball to the right of some destructible rocks, and you will have to draw a line to the left for the beetle to push the paintball to the rocks, where you can then set it to explode.
We have also experienced flaws where the ball stays in place, even though it is seemingly on a bug platform. Just be patient and follow the tips above to get to the feast.
