Level 1-VII is a bonus level in Ground Hog Day. It is unlocked by collecting all 12 stars in the levels 1-25, 1-26, 1-27, and 1-28.
The player is given a 5x4 grid, along with the following parts:
- 1x Ross
- 4x Wooden Frame
- 4x Wooden Wheel
- 2x Metal Wheel
- 4x Black Soda Bottle
- 2x Umbrella
- 1x Spring
- 2x TNT
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 TNT.
Create a 4x2 cart with additional wheels on top of the leftmost and rightmost frames, place an Umbrella on the side of the leftmost frame, and place left-facing Soda Bottles on the remaining empty spaces. Let this cart roll until it falls down a hole in the path, at which point the player should retract the Umbrella and let the cart gather speed. Once it reaches a patch of thin grass on this path, the Soda Bottles should be activated, giving the cart just enough speed to reach the goal.
The ledge behind the goal has a Skull on it. To reach it, stack three frames on top of each other, place Ross in the top frame, attach downward-facing Soda Bottles to the sides of the two bottom frames, and move this contraption to the bottom-right corner of the grid. Then, when the level starts, immediately activate the Soda Bottles, and the rocket should fly with just the right trajectory to reach the Skull.
