For a tip on fixing those confusing pipes, I have several. Go to Dead Mike's and stack up on Scooby Treats, max. it out. Then head back down to the pipes, of course, using Velma, you enter the game and press R to Slow Time and L to Stop Time (temporarily). Use you special attack stamina wisely you can't get more out of items while in the game, so keep your head screwed on tight, because this is the hardest game other than Musical Mayhem!!!!!!!
to open and unlock chests and other chalenges you will get in the game use vilma to solve them. She is the expert.
