I'm playing Henry Hatsworth and the Puzzling Adventure for the Nintendo DS. I seem to have trapped poor Henry partway through Stage 1-5 in Mysteria (the first cemetery level). He can't jump up, and I've tried blasting through the floor with his sword, but that doesn't work either.

Because it's the DS, I don't know how to get a screen shot.

My hypotheses:

  • I am totally incompetent at jumping and will need to start over

  • I need some godawful key combo to jump higher

  • If I can manage to enable the robot suit, it will be able to jump higher than regular Henry can jump

How can I get Henry out of the trap? Feedback and ideas welcomed.

Are you talking about the gauntlet style areas with the purple one eyed enemies that shoot at you? – Krazer Mar 24 '12 at 4:47

Here is a complete video walkthrough for that level:

I'm having trouble figuring out how to go down at around 4:49 in the walkthrough. – Norman Ramsey Mar 24 '12 at 23:44

I found the answer in a walkthrough. It turns out that if Henry is on a thin floor,

Henry can climb down by holding the down direction on the + controller and then pressing the B button.

Why this move isn't in the manual I surely don't know. But climbing down gets Henry out of the trap.
