Chapter 2: Augustus Gloop
You now begin the first room of the factory; the Chocolate Room.
Augustus is stuck in the pipe and you must follow Wonka's tutorial instructions to complete the first part. This introduces the Oompa Loompa command system of follow, wait, info and work.
The Oompa Loompas will dislodge Augustus with the bellows.

You will then recieve you next candy ability: Wriggle Sweets.
