The Garden is the sixth chapter of It Takes Two and we’re nearing the end.
This time, Cody and May are transported to the garden which is Cody’s passion.
Here’s a walkthrough and guide of The Garden (chapter 6) in It Takes Two.
The Garden (Chapter 6)
The first part of the section is titled Green Fingers. May will be given a sickle and also a hose to water stuff. Cody will have the ability to launch a vine and pull stuff. He can also jump into special soil to gain different abilities.
Cody has to pull open the plant’s flap while May uses her sickle to destroy the plant.
May now has to water the soil until it’s wet.
Cody can then jump into the soil to create a dandelion.
Once Cody is on the other side, he has to use the vine to pull down the plant hook. May has to grapple onto the hook to cross over.
You will now reach a pumpkin area. Cody has to use the soil to become a cactus man. He can shoot needles to destroy the pumpkins.
Continue going and you’ll be reminded of Plants vs Zombies. The plants will start to attack.
May can use her sickle while Cody uses his vine.
At the next area, Cody has to use the soil to become a plant. Cody has to use the right-side pathway and create leaf platforms along the way.
This is to allow May to go over.
Then, May has to water the plant so that a middle path is opened up.
Cody now extends the plant through the middle. May has to use the hook to reach Cody’s leaf platform.
Here, May has to destroy the infection to allow Cody to slide through.
At the next area, Cody has to do the same thing to allow May to cross.
May has to destroy the infection to allow Cody to use the hooks to get over.
Boss Fight: Burrower
You will now encounter your first boss fight here.
Cody has to use the vine to restrain it while May attacks with her sickle. Continue the process until the boss is down.
Avoid the needles created by the burrower.
Back to Green Fingers
Continue with the path. Cody has to pull down the flap and May destroys the infection.
After this part, look around for some minigames if you want to.
If you’re done with the minigames, you can continue on and you’ll be introduced to a tree monster that uses a shield.
To damage it, Cody has to use the vine to hold the shield. May then goes from the back and attack the tree. Regular plant creatures will also spawn during the fight.
In the next part, Cody can transform into a dandelion again. May then gets to use a spider.
May has to first go up the path on the right-side. Water the plant to create a wind current.
Cody transforms into a dandelion to fly over the wind.
Now, both of you will have a spider. Follow the path.
If you reach a dead end, you can probably use the web to go up the path above, and continue.
At one point, Cody will be stuck due to the pink gunk.
May has to water the gunk away to form a path for Cody first.
Then, Cody has to use the vine to turn the wheel and allow May to use her web to go up the wheel. Cody has to move the wheel again to allow May to climb to the next tree branch.
You will now be together with Cody but the spiders will be going home to the mother.
Continue ahead and you’ll meet some flying enemies. To attack them, Cody has to use his vine again and May has to use her sickle.
After some time, a plant will show up. May has to water the plant while Cody uses his cactus form to fend off enemies.
Once the plant is watered, leaf platforms will appear and you can cross over.
Continue to the next plant bulb and destroy it.
Enter the dead centipede to reach the next section of the game called Trespassing.
This part is mostly stealth. You will see many sleeping moles and you have to walk on the grassy areas.
Don’t step the red stuff on the ground as they’ll make a lot of noise.
The goal is to get past the moles without waking them up or you’ll fail. You can see the sound sensor in the middle. Don’t let it go to red.
After going past the moles, wall climb to the top.
You will reach more moles here. This time, Cody transforms into the grass and he can move around.
May has to walk on the grass at all times so this part requires good coordination.
Keep going all the way and you’ll reach a plant that needs watering. Be careful when watering as it creates noise.
Watering the plant creates a hook you can grapple on. Cody has to wait at the other side to soften the fall.
Go to the end and destroy the bulb plant infection.
Once you’re done, the moles will be awake and this part is mostly running.
You’ll have to avoid obstacles so that you’re not slowed down and killed by the moles. Sprinting works here.
You will then reach a part where the mole gets stuck in the wall gap. Keep doing ground pound to go down.
At the next part, continue to wall jump to the top and run.
After escaping the moles, you will reach the Frog Pond. The frogs will sound like NYC (italian) cab drivers for some reason.
Use the frogs as a transport.
You will reach a pond with pink gunk. One player has to jump onto the first platform and it will create another platform. The other player uses the platform on the other side.
Keep taking turns to create platforms until you cross over.
Keep jumping until you reach the taxi stand. Now, May has to go on foot. Cody has to pull down the lid for May to crouch into the tunnel.
May will now see many areas she can water. If you water a specific hole, the water will stop the poison on that particular platform for some time.
Time it nicely so that Cody can cross over on the watered platforms.
Next, May has to stand on the pinkish platform as Cody pulls the red button. This will push the platform up and May will reach the top.
Destroy the infected plant bulb as usual to unlock the next area.
Now, you just have to slide down the vines.
Minigame: Snail Race
At the next area, you’ll find a Snail Race minigame. Whoever is faster wins.
Back to Frog Pond
After the minigame, you can continue your way to the Greenhouse. Cody has to transform into a mushroom first. May gets up on Cody and Cody has to push her all the way up the platform.
Once May is up, you’ll be able to see three pitcher plants. May has to water the plants to unlock the platforms but they will fold back in after some time if May stops watering.
This requires coordination between May and Cody. You have to time the watering and the jumps properly.
Once Cody is at the top, you can open the window to the greenhouse.
The next section of the map is called Affliction.
Climb up the highest platform and you’ll see two pools of gunk on opposite sides.
May has to water the pool to clear out all the pink gunk. Once they’re gone, Cody can jump into the soil to create flowers.
Cody has to move around the soil to create a flower bed.
Now, some enemies will spawn including the shielded tree monster. Take them all out.
Once they’re dead, you can destroy the infected plant bulb.
Head to the next side to do the same steps.
After both sides are cleared, the big bulb in the middle will be exposed. Cody has to pull the flap while May destroys the globules inside it.
Boss Fight: Joy
You will now reach a boss fight with Joy, the first flower Cody planted in his garden.
Joy will turn Cody into a tomato first. Cody’s job is to destroy the plants that spew pink gunk with his tomato form or whatever form he takes next.
May’s main job is to water the gunk to allow Cody to attack the plants.
Once it’s done, May has to water the soil below Joy. Cody then has to enter the soil to control Joy.
Cody has to lower the infected part and May has to use the sickle to destroy it.
After destroying one, you will be subjected to another stage where you can only avoid getting killed.
Now, Joy will turn Cody into a potato. Repeat the same strategy as before.
After the plants are gone, water Joy’s soil again as Cody enters the soil.
This time, slide up the vines and destroy the infected part from above.
After destroying the infection at her back, you’ll come to another stage. Here, there are 6 platforms to stand on and you have to avoid getting pummeled.
Keep jumping from one pot stand to another. You can avoid the attack by looking at the shadows and timing the jumps. This stage ends after one platform is left standing.
Joy will now turn Cody into a lime. Repeat the steps of washing away the pink gunk and Cody has to attack the big plants.
Once again, you have to water Joy’s soil as Cody enters the soil.
This time, destroy the infection above Joy’s head.
This ends the boss fight and the chapter. The garden will be restored to its former glory.
