Hello. Would really appreciate some help here. In the buzz lightyear level, I am up to the first spinning cylinder. I know I need to jump onto it, grab it and slide sideways up the corkscrew until I reach the top, then hop off. The walkthroughs on the web all tell me that. But how do I do that? nearly every time I double jump (xx) up, I just fall off. If I do manage to stay grabbed on, I cannot move sideways on the corkscrew to avoid getting fried - how do I slide sideways on it? Neither my 5 year old son nor I can figure it out. Would be very gratefult for some help - specifically what button or combination of buttons and stick mivements on the PS3 controller I need to use to get up this flipping cylinder! Many thanks, Adrian

Actually I now figured this out. The answer for those interested is to do a double jump by pressing x x on a standard controller. If you are facing the right way and jump at the right time, you will grab on automatically. You do not need to perform any further button action to grab on. Once you are on, there is a lag before you can begin to shimmy right. So if you keep getting fried, try jumping on a little further to the right to start. Shimmy right using the left analog stick only after you are grabbed on. Good luck!
