The Beginning

First, click on Create New File. Then create a new game. You can click Left Click to skip. You can click Shift to use your ability. The Kid’s Hat will make you find your goal, and the Sprint Hat will make you run faster. Before you leave the bedroom, press E to look inside the chest, near the wardrobe. You will get one point. Then go through the purple door. It opens once you go near it. Before you leave, you can switch places with the robot. When you leave, you will see some rooms. One is a small elevator, one is a kitchen, one is a green passageway, and the other one is a red passageway. The passages and the elevator doesn’t work right now, and there’s nothing in the kitchen that helps you… YET. Once you complete the first level, you can go to other levels. To go to the first level, go to the screen with an ! on it. Press E, and then a Mafia will knock at the door. Go near it, and then the first level will start. Have fun!

Welcome to Mafia Town!

Follow the path of diamonds, until you see a girl with a mustache. Follow her. When she goes on the rope, go right and stand on the button. Climb to the tower where the mustache girl is and keep following her. When she says she sees one of the “junk pieces”, go closer to it. Attack the Mafia until you can get the junk. Then jump and get it. If you jump and attack, it will be easier. Click on the screen near the kitchen. Go in the kitchen and click on the light. You will unlock two new levels: She Came from Outer Space and Barrel Battle.

Barrel Battle

Click on the level, “Barrel Battle” to start it. Then, Climb up by going to the right and jumping, then to the left, and keep doing it until you get to the top. Go to where the glowing is and get the yarn. You need it to craft hats. Then go to the safe and follow where the beams go. Get the codes and open the safe. If you see robotic birds, attack them. When you have all the vault codes, go to the safe and get the points and the brewing yarn. Then, go to where the angry talking is. It’s the mustache girl yelling at the Mafia. If you see one of the Mafia holding his hand out, don’t talk to him. Then when you go near the barrels, the Mafia will try to attack you. When you finish off the fourth one, avoid the barrels of TNT. Then, attack the boss. Get the junk.

She Came from Outer Space

Before starting, talk to the mustache girl. She will give you sprint yarn. Then, go into the kitchen and go to the third level. It’s the mystery level. You will need to get it by buying it with five points. Then, go up the barrels and get the yarn. Okay, I don’t know how to get it. Go to the junk. Near it, you will find two pieces of yarn. Then, you can stitch a hat. Great job. Then, go near the Mafia with weird glasses.

If he doesn’t run away from you, fall in a puddle. Then, he will jump across. It says you can press Ctrl to jump further, but there’s an easier way. Use the Sprint Hat. When you jump across, go to the large pipes to the right. Then, jump across. Then, jump again. Next, you guessed it. JUMP OR ELSE! To do the next jump, go to the right of the barrier. Jump. Then, go to the wall and climb and ____ to get to the top. I don’t even have to say the blank. Then, jump and oops I said it. ____ and ____ to get to him. J*** and get it. You unlocked Down with the Mafia!

Down with the Mafia!

Start the level. Go to the part with the slides. Get the relic. Then, go back to where you started. Before that, get the YARN. Don’t be afraid to get two more. On the way, fight the Mafia harming the man. He’ll give you a yarn. If you got all the yarn, you will have five pieces. No, I did NOT get the one in the third level yet. Then, attack the Mafia near the mustache girl. When she steps on a button, step on the other one. Go to the Badge Seller and buy the umbrella one. Then, climb to the top of the bar. Go on the wood and run to the back. Get the bucket of crabs near the cat. Watch out for rats. CAT, THAT’S YOUR JOB! Go down and go to the right. Put the crabs on the button and get the key. Go into the door and go to the bathroom that’s open. Get the token. Go into the kitchen behind the bar. Unlock the door. Go to the left and climb up the crates. Open the chest to get yarn. Your 6th one (if you got all of them). Climb all the way to the hole and crawl (Ctrl) through it. Then, go towards the Mafia king. When your path is blocked, attack the Mafia and go closer to the king. Then, you will have to do challenges. When the king glows blue, you can attack him.

  • Super Charge – Jump over the waves of electricity.
  • Ultra Charge – Jump over the waves of electricity and sparks in the air.
  • Mega Charge – The same thing as Ultra Charge, only that the electricity is red and moves faster.
  • Bow Down – Avoid the heavy bags.
  • Spinning – Hide in the corners to avoid the electricity. If you want to attack him, attack his head.
  • Spinning Faster – A faster version of Spinning. This time, I don’t think you should hit him.
  • Mafia Ball – The hardest one. When the Mafia Ball isn’t going your direction, climb up it and hit him.
  • Spinning blades – The easiest one. Don’t get hit by the blades.

After you finish him, get the junk. Now, you can switch places with the mustache girl and go up the slide. Use the brewing hat and destroy the yellow barrels. You unlocked The Golden Vault and Heating Up Mafia Town

Go to the red passageway and unlock it. Use the witch hat to break the barrels in the way in the Art Room. Go in the Time thingy. Then that will start this level. First, jump. DANG I just said the J word. Climb up like in the second level. Go on the gears. On the second one, go backwards. And this is giving the PRO trouble. Jump on the balloons. Blow up the boxes with the witch hat. Once you finish the second part with the gears, do homing attacks to go through. Then climb up. Like you have no other choice. Then climb up. At least I skipped the part with the J… ARRRGGGHHHH! Climb up. I’m trying not to be mean, but I’m about to say the J word. JUMP! That felt good saying that. Then you get to choose da hat. Then, talk to the cat to get a relic. Use both hamburger relics to finish.

I love two things in life, games and sports. Although sports were my earliest interest, it was video games that got me completely addicted (in a good way). My first game was Crash Bandicoot (PS1) from the legendary studio Naughty Dog back in 1996. I turned my passion for gaming into a job back in 2019 when I transformed my geek blog (Re-actor) into the gaming website it is today.
