3. After pass through the second special gate, the hover bridge will take players to another branch, and players will see other special gates as next goals.  

4. Since purple mushrooms cover the whole path, players need to find a way to terminate them. Base on the experience of terminate blue mushrooms, they’ll know that they have to walk through the next special gate. However, this special gate is the one to terminate green mushrooms but not purple.

5.  Since the green mushroom dissapear, players can reach the shrine now. When they get to the shrine, they’ll start the rebuild dance and three things will happen - flowers on tree will start growing; leaves will transition from orange to green; purple mushrooms will dissapear. Players can get to the next path since mushrooms gone.

6. Following the green light, players will see the rope to climb. After climbing on the rope, they’ll see the next special gate which indicate the way to next level.
