Hints & Tips
For a faster time, turn off the trick camera in Options. If you leave the camera
on, Woody will pause while the neighbour goes through each trick,
thereby losing valuable time he could use to set up other tricks. While it is
fun to watch the neighbour get what is coming to him the first couple of times,
it can also get a little tedious if you are trying for a better score.
Don't get caught. I know this is simple, and in some places getting caught may
speed up the time in which you can complete an episode (though I am yet to
discover this). However you will lose 1,000 points each time you get caught so
it is not worth it.
Where possible, try to pull off the tricks in one "lap" by the neighbour to
maximise his anger level.
Be careful not to click elsewhere before Woody has finished using an item. Woody
will abort what he is doing if you are too eager with the mouse button.
Some tricks can only be pulled off as part of a combo, so they rely on another
trick happening immediately before hand to work.
Some individual tricks can be combined as a double whammy to save time.
Some coins can only be earned by combining two other tricks, thereby causing a
third trick. Therefore, if you are fairly sure you have used every possible
trick but are still short a coin, try combining two tricks.
If you can pick up an item two or more times, chances are you will need it
twice, either for two different tricks or for one trick that is part of a
combo(in which the trick can be pulled alone or with another trick tacked on
Similarly, if you use an item and it doesn't disappear from Woody's inventory,
you will either need to use it with another object or have the option of using
it with the same object later.
