Level 1-II is a bonus level in Ground Hog Day. It is unlocked by collecting a combined total of 8 stars in the levels 1-5, 1-6, 1-7, and 1-8.
The player is given a 4x4 grid, along with the following parts:
- 1x Ross
- 2x Wooden Frame
- 2x Metal Frame
- 2x Wooden Wheel
- 1x Metal Wheel
- 1x Bellows
- 1x Spring
The player is awarded stars for the following conditions:
- Ross reaches the goal.
- The level's Star Box is collected.
- The level is completed without using Metal Wheels.
To complete the third star, create a simple cart with Metal Frames on the sides and Ross in the rightmost frame. Place this cart at the bottom-right corner of the grid, and it will complete the level on its own.
As for the Star Box, a somewhat inconsistent way to get it is to place a Metal Frame with Ross inside it, Wooden Wheels on the top and bottom of the frame, a Metal Wheel on the right side, and a Bellows on the left. Then, just keep using the Bellows until the vehicle goes off the ramp and hope it reaches the Star Box and lands safely. Unfortunately, there isn't any 100% consistent way to collect this Star Box - even the Magnet power-up won't help you here. You can only throw attempts at the wall until something sticks.
The hole behind the starting platform contains a Skull. To reach it, just throw Ross into the hole; one way to do this involves placing two Metal Frames on the ground in the bottom-left corner of the grid, creating a 2x2 cart on top of these frames with a Bellows on the right side and a Metal Wheel on top of the rightmost Wooden Frame, and placing Ross beside the Metal Wheel. Then, when the level starts, keep using the Bellows until Ross falls into the hole; if he gets stuck, try again until it works.
The Spring, Metal Wheel and Metal Frame are normally introduced in 1-19, 1-26, and 1-27, respectively.
