Start off by walking, if you run, you will step right off the tomato, once it starts going superfast and your about to slip backwards, then you run.
Use the tomatoes to fly everywhere, because on the ground there are quite a few dangers, and its quicker to go by tomato.
Simply grab hold of the tomatoes and then press the same button to let them go, then jump and and grab hold again, use the cross shaped arrow thingo to direct where you want it to go! It helps me all the time!
If youre about to travel, and want to get past people like those mini petes with the sticks or the bugs, and cant be bothered to knock them out, and theres no tomatoes availavble, find those small blocks and the big, thick vines, you can jump from one to one, it really works!
While the weird flies are in midair, jump on them and use them as stairs!
When youre about to get smashedby something, grab hold of one of those stepping blocks and press the same button to peg it at them!
