yeah, I have no idea what to do either. I run past all the exploding barrels, I get into the room with the acid pond or whatever in the middle; and that's it. A little wall comes down like maybe the boss should be coming out of there, but nothing does. I've tried shooting and pressing r on everything in the room multiple times. I'm very confused.
Have you tried xyzzy yet? That sometimes helps.

Also, still not playing until the game shows up on the official list. And probably not until June, to be honest.

I figured it out. The game is broken on the easiest difficulty. I replayed it on the default difficulty and the boss shows up as he should. Unfortunately I forgot to look at my points before, so I don't know if it actually gives points as it's supposed to.

Where is the secret level? I beat all the levels with 100% secrets and no secret level to be found. Does anybody know where the gold key is for the 4th level? You don't need to open that door to beat the level and you can get 100% secrets without opening it, but I wonder if it's important.

Yeah, I found that out to. It's also broken for the 2nd difficulty mode from the top to.

It was one of the first things I found. It's at the end of level 3. In fact, you have to open up the entrance to level 4 to open up the cove it's in in the long dark hallway - the coves that release the pigs into the dark hallway. It's in the last one before the room with the exit to level 4. Just enter it and press R to open up a secret door to reveal the hidden exit switch.

Awesome, Thanks!

Also I checked and it adds the points to your total correctly, so I don't see nay harm in playing this now. I probably would play it now instead of later incase the medals break or something.

On the game's page comment section some people are saying it still doesn't work.

Also, guess what!Pyroscape 2 points don't add up to my total points!
WHOO!If I keep this up, my medal score will be doubled when they give me my points :P

Yep and yep. As I recall you weren't sure if you needed both of each golem part at the time. Also your list is out of order, which is less important than the one thing not being there but was a little confusing to me when I was trying to track down the thing I was missing from it.

Wow, this post really sounds like a bitch marathon, doesn't it.

I guess it's not common knowledge yet... While they don't show up on the game's page, you can earn them, and they are worth points that do add to your total.

4 minutes. That's what I got on When Pigs Fly; and that's not good enough. It has to be under 4 minutes to earn you that medal. #@$$@#@$##%@!

On the plus side, I did get the halfway home medal....

Ouch. That really sucks. The best I have ever been able to get in that game is like 8 minutes.

So, something that many people found out the hard way is that the "hours" are not counted for your time, so if you beat the game in 1 hour and 3 minutes, you get the "under 4 minutes" medal.
It's up to you on how you want to get the medal. Good luck!

I can't figure out how to get to the exit on stage two on the 3d pig game. There seems to be a gap and no jump button I can find.

Thanks. I finally did get it, though, but I wished I knew that trick on one of my close tries. It would have saved some some time and aggravation.

You have to use the shift key to run really fast over that gap.

Yeah, I got really lucky because I managed to find it out WHILE I was playing, so I could simply wait and get the medal the lazy man's way :P

What? We have to explain this trick? It was a major part of the original Doom Series. Did you never play Doom? Sizzlebuzz, please turn in your Gamer's badge immediately.

I played Doom for SNES, but I looked at the controls in this and couldn't find the run. And if I remember, I did try holding shift but didn't notice it going any faster. But I'll go do it now. I figured there was a run or a jump (like in DN or something =/), but I couldn't find it.

That part was annoying, but not that hard. Just wait till one of the pillar falls, then go against it, and run as soon as it allows you to. To bring down the central pillar holding the key, just look for the cross on the floor, and run straight over it to the yellow door.
