- Online: 0

- Approximate amount of time to 200:gsicon:: 2-3 hours

- Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 1

- Does difficulty affect achievements: No difficulty option

Introduction:

The Great Wobo Escape is a short platformer with a few puzzles thrown in the mix. You play as a little robot that is trying to escape a facility and rescue his friends. There are 8 levels, including a boss level at the end. It shouldn’t take too long to get through, although there are collectables in the form of robots you need to save. The game is cross-buy with Windows Phone so you get two games for the price of one!

Walkthrough:

There are achievements for completing every level, and there is an achievement for completing every level. Luckily, you can just play through the whole game in time trial mode so you can get all the achievements in a single playthrough. There is a glitch that you can use if you run out of time; exit the game (close the app) when your time runs out, then start the game again. When you hit continue, your timer will have reset but your progress is saved. If you manage to save all of the Woblings, you will have all the achievements by the time you finish level 8. If you miss any, you can use level select to mop up any stragglers.

Conclusion:

The Great Wobo Escape isn’t a bad game. It won’t pose much of a challenge whether you use the glitch or do in “legit”. A cheap game that will give you a few hours of entertainment, but an easy completion, and the cross buy is a bonus.

Achievement Guide:

 

http://www.xboxachievements.com/images/achievements/4464/1.jpg Obeyed Orders 15:gsicon:

Complete the level "Obeyed Orders"

 

Finish the first level. Story related, cannot be missed.

 

Tutorial level, really straightforward.

 

http://www.xboxachievements.com/images/achievements/4464/2.jpg Small Savior 15:gsicon:

Complete the level "Small Savior"

 

Finish the second level. Story related, cannot be missed.

 

Shouldn’t be too much trouble. Quite a mixed level, introducing a few more game mechanics. Just be careful of the falling drums on the jump sections; get your jump timing right, the platforms stay up for a while.

 

http://www.xboxachievements.com/images/achievements/4464/3.jpg Dangerous Drillings 15:gsicon:

Complete the level "Dangerous Drillings"

 

Finish the third level. Story related, cannot be missed.

 

This level has a chase sequence, where you just have to jump and duck. You can miss a few and still do it, so it’s not too bad. During the stealth part, just remember to remain ducked so you are harder to spot.

 

http://www.xboxachievements.com/images/achievements/4464/4.jpg Parted Pathways 15:gsicon:

Complete the level "Parted Pathways"

 

Finish the fourth level. Story related, cannot be missed.

 

This level focuses mainly on security cameras and enemies rather than puzzles or anthing else. Just learn their patterns and use the hide spots to your advantage

 

http://www.xboxachievements.com/images/achievements/4464/5.jpg Abhorrent Abyss 15:gsicon:

Complete the level "Abhorrent Abyss"

 

Finish the fifth level. Story related, cannot be missed.

 

This level is not too bad, a mixture of everything you have learned so far. Just be careful at the mine cart sequence at the end as you need to time your movements carefully to avoid being crushed.

 

http://www.xboxachievements.com/images/achievements/4464/6.jpg Tesla Trouble 15:gsicon:

Complete the level "Tesla Trouble"

 

Finish the sixth level. Story related, cannot be missed.

 

Quite a fun level, focusing on killing the enemies as a way to clear your path.

 

http://www.xboxachievements.com/images/achievements/4464/7.jpg Tricky Tunnels 15:gsicon:

Complete the level "Tricky Tunnels"

 

Finish the seventh level. Story related, cannot be missed.

 

This is the only level that may give you a little trouble; specifically exiting the level. Once you get to the bottom level and speak to your fellow robot, you need to set of the alarm to the left. Once you see the enemy robot running towards you, exit through the shutter door, then immediately run back out. The enemy should be to the right of you now, so sprint to the left and down the ramp.

 

Other than that, the mine cart part may cause you trouble. Flip the first lever, then unflip it once the minecart has taken the guy out. Then flip the second, and again unflip it once the enemy is dead. Then flip the third lever, wait until the cart near lever 2 goes by so you don’t get squashed and flip level 2 again. This should get rid of all the enemies and leave you alive.

 

http://www.xboxachievements.com/images/achievements/4464/8.jpg Cruel Confrontation 15:gsicon:

Complete the level "Cruel Confrontation"

 

Finish the final level. Story related, cannot be missed.

 

This is really simple, and has you in an escape set piece, where you are auto running. You just have to jump and duck under obstacles, and avoid the boss who will be charging one of his tentacles at you. When he is doing this, just keep on jumping and he will not hit you. This run should take less than a minute, and once you are done the game is finished.

Save one Wobling

 

See “The Great Escape

 

http://www.xboxachievements.com/images/achievements/4464/10.jpg The Great Escape 30:gsicon:

Save all Woblings

 

Level 1: No Woblings

 

Level 2: 5 Woblings

 

The first two are to your left when you start. The first one is your gimme, the second is to the left, ducking under and avoiding the steam. The third one can be found after the jumps at the beginning where you go through the door and up to turn off the stream. Go right to the end of this room and he is tucked in the corner. Number four is a little later on, after you do the conveyor belt puzzle, go up in the lift. Avoid the electricity and jump the gap and use the computer to release him. The last one can be found right near the level exit, just continue walking to the left.

 

Level 3: 3 Woblings

 

The first one is in plain sight after the first steam/cart puzzle, you can’t miss him. The second guy is just after the chase sequence. Don’t go down the lift, carry on to the right. Jump over the spikes to turn them off, then stand on the spikes to free him. The final one is also in plain sight during the stealth part.

 

Level 4: 3 Woblings

 

The first guy is in plain sight right at the beginning, you can’t miss him. After you have him, the next one is just passed the next part with the security camera. Wait for the heat to die down and the enemies to go and you can easily get this one. For the next one, after you go up in the elevator for the first time, head to the left through the laser grid. There is a switch to pull here, but carry on to the left to far corner and you will see the third one right in the corner.

 

Level 5: 4 Woblings

 

You will see the first guy in plain sight just after the start off this level. Just wait until the enemy robot goes away and you will easily have enough time to get it. When you get to the lift at the end and have to flip the switch on the conveyor belt, carry on to the end of the belt to get your second. For your third, after the jumping part, when you get to the elevator go down to the bottom floor. Jump all the way over to the left and he is there. The last guy is all the way over to the left at the mine cart part at the end.

 

Level 6: 2 Woblings

 

To the right at the start is where you can find your first guy. You can get him straight away if you time your runs perfectly, but if you go up the elevator, complete the puzzle and flip the switch to the right, you can drop a container on one of the enemies and go back and get him then - probably the easier option. The last one is on the bottom floor on your way to the exit; you can’t miss it.

 

Level 7: 3 Woblings

 

The first one is a two parter. At the first ladder where you can go down, do so. Go to the left (avoiding the enemy), and flip the lever to open the door. Go through and hit the switch. You will see a small cutscene. Later on, after the minecart part, go up the elevator and you can free him. For the second guy, when you get to the huge ladder, go all the way down to the bottom and you will see him on the left (this is missable if you take the faster route). The third guy is in plain sight near after the part where you are turning off steam vents

 

Level 8: No Woblings

 

http://www.xboxachievements.com/images/achievements/4464/11.jpg Birdie 10:gsicon:

Finish one level under par time

 

See “Conor

 

http://www.xboxachievements.com/images/achievements/4464/12.jpg Condor 30:gsicon:

Finish all levels under par time

 

You will have to have pretty faultless runs and miss saving a bunch of the Woblings to hit the par times. The later levels are a bit more forgiving, but the early levels are really tight. If you die, you may as well start again as you will not have enough time.

 

Luckily, there is a glitch that you can abuse if you like. If you run out of time; exit the game (close the app) when your time runs out, then start the game again. You will continue where you left off, but the timer will be reset, giving you (hopefully) plenty of time to finish. If not, you can do this as many times as needed.

I hope you still check this. I am at the end after running down the ramp and cannot find a way around the robot. Unfortunately they fixed the time glitch so getting under par is impossible for me. I am hoping to at least finish the game and get all Wobbles.

 

edit: Finally figured it out. Jeesh. You may want to update your guides to reflect difficulty and time with the glitch being fixed. Without any video reference I am guessing this game will not be completed by me.
