Balloon-O-Rama bonus levels

Post by Nowhere Girl on Mon Feb 03, 2014 8:41 am

Of course I know how to get to bous levels: hit a UFO. However, I desperately need to return to one particular bonus level because screenshot capture didn't work.
It was a level with rainbow UFOs, after level 110, I think. I want to have a screenshot of this one because of my love for everything rainbow-colored. (With my predilection for both the hippie age and the LGBT movement it's not surprising, I guess... I even have two small rainbow flags in my living room.) And I can't return there. Any advice? Does the UFO always come after the last balloon is popped? Last time I tried it didn't come at all. Once I tried bouncing Pep around without popping the last one or two balloons, but the UFO didn't come, so I suppose it is "scheduled" after the last balloon - but then Pep is already going down...

Normally you can't return to a bonus level on a replay, but you CAN do this -- enter your name as FROGBOY or TOADGIRL, which are cheat names that will grant you every power-up and the ability to skip to any level, and will also make it impossible to drop Pep. I just tested it and it will allow you to go to any bonus level as well, so long that you get the UFO you need to. If having every power-up or even one is too much for you, there's also the HUMO cheat that is covered at the bottom of this page: http://tcrf.net/Putt-Putt_%26_Pep%27s_Balloon-o-Rama
Frustratingly, I tried HUMO alone and it won't allow you to skip to any level, but you can just use "HUMOD" which will not cause any cosmetic changes that will interfere with the screenshot.
If you need help recalling which bonus level it was, my walkthrough got all of them.

And if I use "HUMOD", will I be able to replay bonus levels? I guess I can't skip directly to bonus levels because they don't have any numbers by themselves...

Yes, you will be able to. I tested it myself.

I tried "HUMOD", but I still don't know how to get to the bonus level - I couldn't hit the UFO, just as with normal replays...

I'm just replaying the game. I haven't got to that point yet, but I have already missed several UFOs because they seem to have a tendency to appear after popping the last balloon, when Pep can no longer go back up to hit the UFO.
Is there any rule to when the UFOs appear?
And again: please explain how to use the cheat to access these levels. I've read that they can be used to access bonus levels, but bonus levels don't have numbers of their own, so "accessing any level" doesn't seem to apply to them as well.
