Characters

The Jiggosseum stars

Act 1

Fat Blokes in Nappies

Host: Pikelet
Description: Push all the sumo blocks off the dartboard as quickly as possible. You'll need a vehicle with lots of power and weight to shift these pork pie-munching mammoths. (Player's Choice)

  • Jiggy: Complete the challenge in under 2 minutes and 20 seconds.
  • T.T. Trophy: Complete the challenge in under 1 minute and 10 seconds.

Unhappy Landings

Host: Mr. Fit
Description: A simple game of long jump. Launch yourself off the bottom of the ski jump and travel as far as possible once off the ramp. You'll lose control, so choose a vehicle with plenty of momentum. (Player's Choice)

  • Jiggy: Finish with at least 250 points.
  • T.T. Trophy: Finish with at least 500 points.

Jinjo Challenges

  • Purple Jinjo
    Type: Jinjo Taxi
  • Red Jinjo
    Type: Jinjo Race

Act 2

Burnin' Rubber

Host: Trophy Thomas
Description: A land-based endurance race around the arena. A balance of speed and sufficient fuel is what you should be looking for here. (Player's Choice)

  • Jiggy: Finish in first place in under 4 minutes and 20 seconds.
  • T.T. Trophy: Finish in first place in under 3 minutes and 10 seconds.

Half-Time Snacks

Host: Bottles

  • Jiggy: Complete the challenge in under 3 minutes and 15 seconds.
  • T.T. Trophy: Complete the challenge in under 1 minute and 30 seconds.

Tumblin' Domies

Host: Boggy
Description: "A nice relaxing game of dominoes? Maybe later, as here you need to knock over as many as possible. When the first one is hit your controls are frozen, so make the initial strike count." (Player's Choice)

  • Jiggy: Knock over at least 25 dominoes.
  • T.T. Trophy: Knock over at least 40 dominoes.

Jinjo Challenges

Act 3

World's Strongest Bear

Description: Hoist the bowling balls onto the rostrum. The key to this game is lifting, so you'll need a vehicle that can somehow life the balls up high enough. (Player's Choice)

  • Jiggy: Complete the challenge in under 4 minutes and 20 seconds.
  • T.T. Trophy: Complete the challenge in under 2 minutes and 10 seconds.

Heavy Balls and Hairy Pits

Brown Bears Can't Jump
