So I'm playing this game through in order to record the soundtrack.
And what an incredibly cruel game it is. Almost enough to make a grown man burst into tears.
Anyway, after beating stage 52, the game starts again, only:

  • The colours have changed
  • The time limit is removed
  • The exits are hidden (like, really...)

From PPTR 5 (PDF alert), I understood that the 2nd time around, you'll have to collect 3 special items in order to see the enddemo.
Does anyone have experience with this or knowledge of this? I would like to know what to look for (and even, where).
Are those special items placed somewhere obvious? Or do you need to seek them out, like the exits? And in which stages are they? Or do they randomly float about like the card symbols?

I had to recheck my script file/ notes. You have to finish the game two times. If you play it for the second time around you don't have time limits anymore.

Probably the person who wrote the hints didn't quite know what to do with the items. You don't need to collect 3 items. You have to pick one of the three items you are offered as a reward: a gold pin, a silver pin and a bronze pin.

If you pick incorrectly you get the "wrong" ending message.

Some bonus levels in the game aren't listed in the PTTR 5, so keep an eye out for extra ones.

** Spoilers ahead **

You have to pick the bronze one...

Thanks so much Randam, that's reassuring! Smile
I did indeed stumble on some bonus levels that weren't mentioned there.
BTW if you have beaten this game without cheating, I can't even begin to explain how much in awe I am. This is easily one of the hardest games I've ever encountered. But it's still so much fun.

To be honest I did not fully beat it without cheating. When I finished it, I did it partly for the game and for a large part to translate the script as well. To do the second part, I cheated. But yes it is a great game and I want to finish it someday just for the sake of playing it.

That's interesting. Then could you shed some light on the plot as well?
There must be some reason for that angel/god like guy wanting to turn you into a frog that badly.

I sadly don't have the game originally yet (that day will hopefully come); what I can infer from the in game text is that you are put to the test (the levels) and as a result you need to become a nice boy (sort of atonement). Probably you were into some mischief before the game.

Why not use reverse and make a video of the full run through? Smile No real cheating visible, so people can use it as a walkthrough.

For me that's too late to do, as I'm already in the 2nd round. Sad
