Level 1 is extremely easy and requires no prior gameplay experience to beat it. It is almost impossible to lose unintentionally.
To reach the end of the level, simply jump over the holes or just walk around and avoid them.
Level 1 is one of the few levels that can be beaten easily without jumping. If using the Pastafarian or the Bunny, it is not even necessary to press any keys, except to jump over the barrier at the beginning.
Level 1, along with Launch Site C, is one of the two (or three if Memory Evaluation, part 7 has one) levels in the game that has barrier tiles. They serve the purpose of stopping the character and can be jumped over and/or walked around. In this particular barrier, there will be a message displaying on the top and bottom of the screen. The top, serving as a bit of a story introduction reads:
Attention, citizens. This area is restricted. For your own safety turn around now.
While the bottom, serving as a tutorial, reads:
Press up or space to jump.
- This is the only 'tutorial' or gameplay instruction in the game, as the controls are quite simple and intuitive.
- You can skip this and the other tutorial levels by selecting the "i" icon in the settings to view the credits.
- The attention citizens message, was recorded and put in the tunnel a while before the tunnels were found by the public.
