By lighting up various words, make a bridge leading to a boat and ride it over to a platform. Head along that platform and light up the word “cabin” to create such a building. Enter it and then quickly jump back to the ledge. The cabin starts slowly rotating. Watch it until you see the roof. The video game will pass you. Wait until the roof is at a level you can jump to and run across, grabbing the game along the way before leaping to the next ledge.

When you finally come to the gas station, after an extended series of sequences that includes a maze within a rolling wheel, exit the building and look to your right to spot a DeerFest truck. Beyond that and to the right, you will find a mattress and the game is resting on it, though the area is populated by aggressive enemies.

After powering up and moving the log lift, cross and ascend along a trail to reach a bridge with a log truck along its right side. Pass the log truck, then turn right and wrap around it so that you are headed back the way you came. You will see the game ahead of you, next to the truck.

Climb to the bridge’s high point and battle your way across, at which point you can descend along a tree trunk to reach the ground. As you do, continue forward and look to your left to spot what looks like the rusted bed of a giant dump truck turned on its end. Head around behind it and check the brush to find a video game.

After listening to a therapy session, head along the lamp-lit stone corridor to arrive on a rock ledge. Ahead, there is a crashed plane with the word “tremor” above it. Climb to a useful vantage point and shine your light on the word to tilt the wing toward the rock ledge. Cross along the wing to reach the ground, and check at the plane’s tail end, where enemies lurk. You can hop inside the plane from that end to find a video game resting near the front.

Ascend to the Safe Point ahead of the lighthouse. Don’t enter the building immediately. Instead, head around to its back side to find the game resting in a red armchair.

Ascend to the top of the lighthouse and view a cutscene. Now you are facing the “Diver’s Isle” sign. Turn around and run uphill to the very top, where the video game rests on a stump.
