Okay, I'm going to save my thoughts about how lame and clunky this mechanic is and just ask...HOW THE HELL DO I DO IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME??
I pinch the guy...one finger on the rear touch pad and one on the screen, just like it shows you...and he doesn't do anything. Then sometimes I pinch him and he jumps. Where on Lil do I need to "pinch?"
Any help is appreciated. This is the most awkward game mechanic I've ever dealt with and it looks like it plays a big role in the early going ons in this game. Tragic, because the rest of the game is money.
But please, can someone explain to me the "proper" way to pinch Lil to get him to move?? Again...thank you in advance.

Just to be sure, has Lil drank coffee? or Is he inflated? Laarg only farts when you squeeze him so you don't need to worry about pinching him.
Also make sure your fingers are over Lil when you pinch, the back finger has a little bit of room to miss but it's best to get both the front and back finger on the character.
If your not sure if Lil has had coffee, there should be squiggle and shapes coming out of his head. Also some giggling.
Also both fingers have to be touching the screens at the same time.
If that doesn't clear things up could you provide a level that you are having a hard time pinching on, just to make sure there isn't anything that would cause interference.

Pretty sure that if you don't give him coffee, he won't jump. Yeah, I've given him coffee...I just have to practice the mechanic.
I fixed the problem...I just use two hands. It's still hit and miss, but the results are much better than when I just use the one hand.

For any of you that are still having problems with this, the latest patch for escape plan allows you to use the circle button instead of having to pinch the screen. Hopefully you find this easier!
