When I played through the level, all worked out just fine. But I noticed that the guard in your screenshot is red while he's actually supposed to be orange.

I think I might've been hinted on this error some time ago at PoPUW. You could either download the PRISON.DAT from me or try to keep him positioned so he looks left, run into the screen and jump from the loose floor before he gets any chance to act. It might not work, but if it doesn't you can still download the file.

That's just aproximately 30% of all PoP tricks I know.
If somebody wish I can make trick-training level and record video with solution.
Or you can wait when I finally complete my MOD (2 levels need to complete) "Mirages of Persia" and you can discover more wonderful tricks by yourself.

Hi guys,

This is a new trick I feel is worth mentioning in this topic but I'm not sure how to name this trick.
This trick was found in level 6 of Hummel's Dusk Mod version 1.1

Ah! Intriguing. I'd suggest the name "Wall Jump".

well,I could barely finish the game,but I never thought I was doing tricks.Aren't they just needed to get past some of the puzzles,so everyone knows them?

I remember seeing a video of this trick done in the first room of the original level 10, but I can't find it.
However, I know how to do it:
Go as right as you can, then bump into the door to move away from it. Turn left. Turn right, press right again, and immediately press left.
This trick can be used to press buttons or loose floors through doors or door tops.
It can also be used to make a guard come towards you. (For example on the right edge of the first room of the original level 4.) This works in both directions.
The trick can be done in the other direction with a mirror.

You can exploit this by standing between a Sword and a Gate (must be completely beside eachother) and picking up the sword while facing away from the gate, you will appear on the other side of the Gate."

This can be done with a potion, too. However, the potion will be invisible (except its bubbles). Also, if you just press shift, you'll go through the gate without drinking. You need to crouch, and then press shift.
If you try to drink the potion from the left (through the door): if you're standing, it won't work, and if you're crouching, the potion will disappear without having an effect.
The gate can be replaced by a door top with floor.
The trick, too can be done in the other direction with a mirror.

- I remember levels where, after a jump, you need to grab a ledge that is below and one tile farther than the other side. (For example, in the room of the first yellow guard on level 1 of the Extrem mod)
- When a guard falls into spikes, that set of spikes won't hurt you if you fall on them. (I saw this in the Tricks Bootcamp, level 1)

Are you sure about that one?
I've tried it with a mirror in both directions, but it's not possible, I think.

For each level: where exactly (the time) in the videos on YouTube do you mean?
