    Oooo sounds familiar :D

    Think I was stuck on the same part for ages when it came out, almost gave up because I thought it was a bug.

    Is it one of those cyclinders that move when you press Up/Down in a certain rhythm?

    You need to hold up and down to get the cylinder thing to move up and down do it enough and ull be able to jump up (or down) to a platform that the cylinder helps you reach.

    [EDIT] Just to be more clear the cylinder acts like a type of swing so hold down when the cylinder moves down and up when the cylinder moves up to get it "swinging" faster

    Yeah i remember this you need to jump up and down then press the other direction to make the tube move

    Example jump when you land press down when you go up press up etc i am sure its somthing like that

    while we're here, can someone tell me what the little ring is that appears when you press jump twice when you play as Sonic?

    If i remember correctly, it's a shield that deflects bullets etc.
    Takes precision timing.

    It’s a second of invincibility nothing can hurt you while it’s active, you can avoid attacks with it use it to take out enemies the extended ring seems to extend your attack range.

    I mean, she had done monkey island for the ps2 before new year and I only got it on the christmas..

    Go moms!

    sonic and knuckles is pretty pricey due to its cardboard box. that thing was so rippable. Every way you pulled it something ripped.
