Easily Pass Some Action Levels

Some action stages can be easily completed by spawning a pair of handcuffs and attaching them to the Starite found on the level. Then spawn a vending machine and place it next to the handcuffed Starite. Attach the other end of the handcuffs to the vending machine and it should give you the option to "fill" it with the Starite. Once the Starite is in the vending machine, simply drag it to Maxwell and click it to empty it out. This exploit is also said to work with other objects that can be filled such as baskets.

Easy Advanced Mode

The game ignores adjectives you try to put when writing any word, so writing "Small Hat" or "Big Hat" will only be recognized as "Hat", and will spawn the same thing. The exploit is in the fact that during Advanced Mode, the game will NOT accuse "same word" if you type an adjective before the word itself, eventhough the exact same thing is spawned. You can clear a stage three times by typing "Wings" the first time, "Big Wings" the second time and "Small Wings" the third time, you'll simply get the Wings all three times, but the game will register 3 different words and will allow it. If you're feeling lazy, you don't even have to put in a proper adjective, since the game doesn't recognize them, simply typing "aaa Wings" will register as "Wings", the game ignores the "aaa" as an Adjective (even if it really isn't one).

Unlimited items

To correctly perform this glitch, you'll need to do the following:
*Spawn an item that automatically destructs itself such as "rick roll" or "do not want".
*Drop it and pick it up before it destroys itself.
*Hold onto the item and wait until it gets destroyed.
*After that, put the item in the trash bin.
The game now thinks that you deleted two items instead of one, and the item bar on the top screen depleted more than normal.
This glitch allows you use more items than usual and can be done as many times as the player wants.
Note: This glitch can NOT be done in the level editor.

Gold Star Rankings

After you've completed a given puzzle, you'll be awarded a Silver Star on the puzzle selection screen to indicate your success. However, you can get a higher ranking. Retrying the same puzzle activates Advance Mode, which is a bonus challenge. You have to beat the same level three times in a row, and with different objects each time. If you restart, you'll have to begin the challenge from the beginning. If you successfully complete the Advance Mode version of a puzzle, you'll be awarded a Gold Star on the selection screen.
