Level 15

This level features Dark energy , a substance that disables the ability to create Drawing Stars. Player must break through the first line of Space Cubes and blow up the Spherical Aliens with a couple of Neutron Bombs. There's a Laser accompanied by three Multi Star power-ups, two in Globule Cases. Player must Avoid these (unless player wants to score a few points), and head to either side of the screen. Player must then bash the blocks, revealing another section that is almost identical to the last, with the exception of two Bumpers. Adapting the same strategy, activating the line of Neutron Bombs will lead player to goal.

Level 16

In this level, the Multi Star power ups are vexatious as using them will activate dark cubes. Player must avoid them, as the level is littered with dark matter blocks of all sizes.

Level 19

Big Daddy Bombs are introduced in this level. These power ups summon the Big Red Star to disintegrate everything in sight.

Level 20

Quantum switches are introduced and will make Space Cubes transverse dimensions, allowing new passages to open. Player must go past the first few walls until they can activate the two Big Daddy Bombs. Then comes the line of aliens.

Nitrome-Nebula Level 20

Level 21

This level will test player's patience and timing. The character must be moved up to the pair of Galactic Jellies. Player should get moving when the passage is wide enough, so he/she won't get crushed by super heavy cubes. After another round of this,same obstacle will appear, but with the help of Relativity Clocks to make this one easier. After this, the last obstacle is simple, if player knows the trick. Nebula should be sticked to the lowest Galactic Jelly. Then, spring him forward as the tunnel widens, breezing through the last stretch.

Nitrome-Nebula Level 21

Level 22

Gravity bubbles are introduced here. It's like the Globule Cases, except only Neutron Bombs can blast them open. First thing to do is switching on the Quantum Switch. Then to travel through the two Super Heavy Space Cubes twice.Here player must Bump the gravity bubble downwards, and activate the bombs near it, releasing a Big Daddy. Activating it will get rid of the enemies in the room. Player must head to bottom path to reveal a small pass too small to fit the Gravity Bubble that player finds. Bubble must be knocked past the Switch Space Cubes, then player must follow it on the lower lane, flipping switches as he/she go. Now, the bubble must be lead down the smaller path, and next to Neutron Bombs! Opening the big daddy bomb and activating it will lead player to the key.

Level 23

Player should grab a Superstar and head north. There, the path will split. The top part is the easiest; Player must smash the bricks, and activate the Neutron bombs to blow the enemies away, revealing the room's Cosmic Key. Both of the side rooms also hold Keys, and follow the same basic pattern, bomb the aliens and grab the key.Small alcoves in the side rooms will hold extra Superstars for emergencies, but they are not necessary

Nitrome-Nebula Level 23

Ending

Penguin 1

This navigational box contains a spoiler. Click [show] to open the box.

Nebula Finish Screen

The ending depicts the Big Red Star at the bottom of the image with two other orange suns on the right and left of him. All three are gazing upward at Nebula who is now bright yellow, smiling, and he has a orange and yellow light surrounding him. A caption at the bottom of the image says "Well done! You're now a sun".


Interactive Objects

  • Drawing stars - Nebula will follow this when it goes on it. You can guide Nebula, as well as Blue Stragglers, with these, but if the stars disappear from under the object in question, the object will continue bouncing around.
  • Cosmic keys - You must get these to complete a level, and sometimes there will be more than one.
  • Bumpers - Bumpers are spheres that come in two sizes, large and small, and when touched by Nebula, will flash yellow, and bounce the Star back.
  • Neutron bombs - Large explosives that, when activated (by the touch of Nebula), will blow up any enemies or blocks in the vicinity.
  • Wormholes - Huge green vortices that transport Nebula to different parts of the level. Works both ways.
  • Dark energy - Dark Energy Fields are marked by blue "X's" and Drawing Stars cannot be used inside.
  • Quantum switches - These switches flip Switch Space Cubes in and out of this dimension. Activated with a click.
  • Gravity bubbles - A bubble containing a Big Daddy Bomb. These things can only be opened by a Neutron Bomb.

Blocks

  • Space cubes - Space Cubes appear in many different sizes of red or green squares and triangles, and will disappear when Nebula touches it, causing Nebula to bounce back as well. The smaller cubes have faces, but the rest do not.
  • Switch space cubes - These tan-coloured blocks can be turned intangible with the use of a Quantum Switch, and vice versa. They cannot be destroyed.
  • Moveable space cubes - A rarely seen type of Space Cube that can be dragged either vertically or horizontally. Cannot be destroyed.
  • Globule cases - These cases contain a certain power-up inside it, and can be opened the same way as destroying a Space Cube.
  • Galactic jelly - Nebula will stick to this, and can be unstuck by a simple click of the mouse.

Pick Ups

  • Hydrogen Stars - 50 points.
  • Heart Stars - Heals one heart.
  • Multi-Star - This power up will create two smaller versions of Nebula to bounce around the level.
  • Superstar - This power up will make Nebula invincible, as well as blow up enemies and blocks on contact (with no rebound), and speed up the star.
  • Star Boost - This power up enhances the amount of Drawing Stars usable at one time.
  • Relativity Clock - The Relativity Clock will slow Nebula down to a crawl, which is good for fine adjustments, and then transform him into a super fast Superstar.
  • Big Daddy Bomb - Big Daddy Bombs clear the screen of any destructible object.

Hazards

  • Dark matter balls - These spheres have spikes on them, similar to those of sea mines. They will hurt Nebula on contact, but not any enemies.
  • Lasers - Lasers are the large blue beams placed around the level, causing damage whenever contact is made.
  • Super heavy space cubes - These massive blocks will move up and down or sideways, instantly killing Nebula if he is crushed between two of them, or between one and a wall.
  • Dark space cubes - These cubes contain either a Winged Alien, or a Blue Straggler. Can be opened like a Globule Case.

Enemies

Glitches

At the end of level 19, there are grey blocks on the right side of the cosmic key. It is not apparent if these were intended to be blocks.
