With the second episode of neon white, we’re treated to another batch of levels containing devilishly hidden gifts. In this set of steps you will get a new skill: the God Speed dash. You will be dropping sniper rifles to access this trait frequently. You’ll suddenly have access to buildings and platforms that seem impossibly far away.
But, of course, as your repertoire of skills grows, so does the game’s sadistic concealment of gifts. Some of these gifts are hidden under surfaces that you would only see if you were in the process of falling to your death. Fortunately, we’ve located each of them and are happy to let you know their locations.
Complete the stage as you normally would (you can use the shortcut if you want). Then, once you’ve reached the section where you take out two yellow demons, acquiring two weapons in the process, do not continue towards the balloon demons stretch. Instead, turn around and you’ll see this one sitting on the edge of a tower to your left.
The first thing you need to do is jump to the roof of the nearby building. Discard one of your pistols to double jump. Then, from that roof, do a bomb-jump and discard your final weapon to double-jump to the present. Presto, you have now claimed the Six Pack.
Good Luck Go with God
Once you’ve broken through the wall at this stage, and cleared your second gap, this gift will be sitting on the edge of the tower to your left. You will need a sniper rifle card to reach this gift. From here, you’ll want to wall-climb and scale the surrounding buildings.
Ocasionally, after scaling the roofs of the surrounding buildings, you’ll come to a tall tower. Leap towards the present in the distance (you’ll need a little extra height) and use the sniper rifle’s discard ability to cross the gap. With this you will easily claim the Tattletail Toy.
At the beginning of this level, you will encounter a blue demon, two lesser demons, and lastly, a second blue demon. From the place where you defeat the second blue demon, you will be able to see a red gift in the distance. You will need a pistol card and two sniper rifle cards to acquire this gift.
Now, switch to your weapon, jump towards the distant present, use the discard skill to get the double jump and proceed to use your sniper rifle’s ability to double forward. With that, you should now have your hands damp on this Perfume gift.
This is super complicated. Basically, just complete the entire level. Once you’re in the final area, exactly where the level’s exit is, you’ll want to fall over the edge. You will need to have a revolver card as well as two sniper rifle cards. Fortunately, there are several blue demons and a yellow demon in the final section, so they’ll drop everything you need.
Switch to weapon, jump over the ledge and once you’ve dropped below the platform, use a double jump to get some height. Now use the sniper rifle’s discard abilities to advance towards the present. You should grab cigars with (relative) ease.
Complete the level as you normally would. Nonetheless, once you reach the section with the blue demon on the ledge, don’t run past them. Instead, shoot them, jump twice (discarding your weapon), and climb up that ledge. From here you will be able to see the present from a distance.
You’ll first want to get to the tower between the ledge and the present. You can do this jump without the sniper rifle discard trait, but if you have two sniper rifles, it’s certainly much easier to get through it by discarding one of them. Once you reach the building in the middle, jump towards the present and discard a sniper rifle to cross the opening.
At the end of the level you will find two yellow demons. There is also a vending machine nearby. Take out the demons and get the gun from the vending machine. Now complete the stage as you normally would until you reach the stage exit. At this point, you should have a sniper rifle and two pistols. Go through the exit and you’ll see a series of bridges that encircle the building next door.
Jump from bridge to bridge (don’t use any of your discard abilities) until you’re overlooking the stage exit. If you look up, you will see the gift of this phase. Jump towards it and use the two weapon discards to get enough height so you’re in line with it. Once it’s lined up, use the sniper rifle dash to claim the Tattletail Toy.
The present here is hovering below the roof of the building with the red door barricaded. To get it, you’ll want go to the back, jump on the balloon demon and use your sniper rifle’s discard ability to crash into him when you’re at the apex of your jump. This can be done with a sniper rifle, but it’s even easier if you have two (so avoid running past the first blue demon at this stage). Do this and you will acquire the Cat Statue.
Complete the stage as you normally would. However, during the final section of the balloon demon platform that would normally take you to the exit of the level, jump off the second balloon demon and use it to get to the top of the roof of the tunnel you just came out of. The perfume gift is up here.
This one is quick and easy. In the final stretch (when the exit is in sight), there will be a tower on your left. The present is sitting on a ledge in that tower. Just go to the beginning of the river trail that takes you around the said tower, jump towards the present and discard your sniper rifle to cross the opening. Now you will be the proud owner of a cigar box.
At the very beginning of the stage, you will be able to see the gift on your right. However, it’s in a bell tower in the distance. Then proceed through the level until you reach the yellow demon at the end of the water path. When possible, shoot enemies instead of using discard abilities along the way.
After taking out that yellow demon, move on. You will land in an area with a vending machine that will give you two revolver cards (This is not a mandatory step, but it does give an extra double-jump that can be useful).
Now, go back to the beginning of the stage (or at least as close as possible). Aim at the distant bell tower and switch to your sniper rifle (you should have three of them). Jump towards the turret and use the discard ability on your sniper rifle to get through the opening. Now, discard a Revolver card to double jump to the stairs. Go up the stairs and you’ll claim the Perfume.
