How to play The Sentinel

I've just started to play The Sentinel as it was on my 'to play' list for a while.

So, started at level 1 and after a few attempts I finally absorbed the Sentinel.

Then I build a Synthoid on the sentinels place and transfered into it.

I expected that the level would be finished now and I could continue with the second level.

But this did't happen. The music played on and on. But I don't got into the second level.

(I played the WHDLoad version which I got some time ago from whdownload.)

What am I doing wrong here?

You have to hyperspace (H?) away once you are stood in the final position. Then the level is complete

Yes, and you have to ensure you have at least a robot of energy left in order to teleport. And energy beyond this last robot creates the seed for how many levels you progress - the more energy you have the more levels you’ll skip. So if I remember correctly, to jump to level two (or maybe it’s three?) you need to have a robot and a tree left over. Something like that.

@Coagulus Thank yout, 'H' worked great

@trixter Ah..this explains why I got directly to level 17 - I had absorbed too many trees.

There is never "too many" as the game has ten thousand levels.

I kinda disagree though especially if you're new to the game. If you absorb too much energy and then teleport out of the level you might find yourself very quickly teleporting too far and being faced with difficult levels with Meanies (the fast=turning bad guys who force-teleport you) too soon! I'd recommend trying to progress slowly whilst you're getting to grips with the game
