oh hey after forever its time for an UPDATE
grit and i finally finished level 3-1. we're really slow as you can tell. so here's what we did to finish up the stage
Cactank is done, and it is one jolly fellow. it'll roll around, giggle, and.. uh.. spawn a group of mini-cactanks that attempt to hit pylo by exploding in a horrible fiery hell-plume. try not to think about that one too much!
patch has the same problem as everyone here.
then things get fancy with spikes shooting out of walls and requisite quicksand being around.
...and finally the sun finishes setting and things get easier on the old corneas.
ok, so up next is a fancy desert town full of giant grotesque scarab beetles capable of bashing pylo's skull in by controlling horrible floating jagged rocks. good thing they're on his side~
after that is a deep jungle full of brambles. it is creatively named BRAMBLE JUNGLE.
