Midway 2 continues where The Midway 1 left off, adding 10 more games and 100 (101?) new prizes.

If Midway 2 follows what Midway 1 did, you'll get to play a randomly chosen game for Free every 15 minutes. If you're impatient (like myself) you can buy a "Green/Golden Ticket" which allows you to
play up to 50 games without waiting.

Here are the games Midway 2 Offers:

1: Karla's Wet and Wild - Hit The Moving Target!

Tips by Hibana:

- Whenever you throw the ball, there is always a 1.5 or so second delay so always try to throw it when you think the target will move directly to your target aim marker when you throw it.

- On the later levels especially on 8-10, the target will get smaller and the target aim cursor will move extremely fast, so you will have to imagine on your head when exactly the target (which moves slower than your aim cursor) will land directly. It really comes down to planned timing.

2: Kitty Cannon

Tips - Try and play alone for more targets. I go for the top and bottom targets only.

***


3: Miz Fortune 2 - (More prizes to be won here!)

Tips - Colors Red(1) Blue(2) Green(3) Purple(4) Orange(5) Light Blue(6) Light Green(7) White(8) Pink(9) Gold(10)

I don't have the actual sequence for all levels, sorry!

4: Pop Goes The Weasel

Tips - Sometimes you simply have to move left and right to keep the stream of water shooting into the weasel's mouth.

Weasel pattern - The weasel head will start at 12 and rotate clockwise until it reaches 12 again, then it'll reverse to counter clockwise until it reaches 12. This process repeats until the timer runs out.

***


5: Blue Balls

Tips - There's a specific distance for each level. Center toss is always best (slightly left or right is ok, but not always guaranteed).

***

6: Swingers - Batter up!

Tips - There's definitely a rhythm (specific timing) for hitting homers (100 points).

           If you hit the ball late, it tends to go to the right side of the field. Try hitting it earlier. (by RayBladeX)

7: Glue Factory

Tips by Hibana:

-Always hit the middle '2' and when the ball is in the hole, then roll over it to land on the '5'.

-When the middle '2' and top '5' hole is occupied, throw the ball on either '1' hole side and throw another ball so it lands on the '3' hole that is on top.

- Repeat the two steps once the middle '2' hole and '5' hole is cleared.

- You can sometimes manage to throw it between the holes so it lands past the '1's and '2' hole and into the '3's and '5' hole, but do not try this for the entire game.

- Target goal is 25 points, so keep on speed and accuracy. Avoid always focusing on only landing on '1's or just going after the '2' and '5' hole. On later levels, the computer challenger will become more faster and accurate so just focus on landing the ball on the hole and don't look at the score.

8: Teed Off

Tips - The best time to do most putts is from behind the first brick (closest to you).

9: Half Cocked (by Hibana)

Tips:

- Do not be trigger happy (as in holding down the X button), especially in later stages when paintballs are reduced from 100 to 50 and also the time limit will be reduced.

- Control the gun, don't let it control you. There is a recoil whenever you shoot either going up in a direction while shooting or down. Use this to your advantage.

- Regarding the above, use the recoil to help trace and fill every edge of the star (ex.    <   ^  >  ), this should be your first step before you begin to cover up the entire star.

- Keep an eye on the time limit and paint ball amount on later levels. In the last 15 or so seconds around stages 8-10, you should at least have around 10+ remaining paintballs to cover any remaining bits of the center star and edges that you missed. Tap X once to shoot one paintball into any tiny remaining spots so you don't end up wasting 2-4 by accident since every paintball counts towards the end.

10: Bite Me!

Tips - Green Fish -1 point. Yellow is 3 points. Red is 5 points.- Going for just Yellows and Reds worked for me.  Try and play alone for more fishing options.

-

Bite Me Strategies :

1: Pick up only Yellows and Reds - If you're fast enough, you'll have enough time to beat Level 10. Picking up Greens will mean you lose up to 3 seconds.

2: Remove all Yellows and Reds from the 4 center boxes, and fill those in with Green. This way, the Reds and Yellows will always spawn inside the middle and outer areas. Leave the Greens in the center boxes alone after doing this.

3: Minimal movement seems to work the best for me.  This is where the Fish placement strategy seems to work best.

EDIT: Because we all see a different board, you can't "fix" the board for someone else.  Guide re-written.
