After sliding down a steep cliff, you will find yourself stuck in a pit of red jelly. Gamora was able to jump to avoid it but the rest of you are sinking and things do not look good. Rocket is about to drown before you get a quick time event prompt that involves the thumbsticks that you must solve to free him. Performing this task is not as easy as it seems, however.
Quick time events are a less than ideal way to make cutscenes more interactive. In times like this when you are presented with a brand new type of task to solve without any sort of prompt on how to solve this kind. Here is what you need to do to break rocket out of the red jelly before he drowns in the Guardians of the Galaxy game.
Free Rocket From The Red Jelly
When you see the prompt appear on the screen, you will need to aim the two analog sticks toward the circle in the middle of the marker. Both of the sticks will have a line that is pointing toward the middle, you just have to target this.
The video guide above will show you the scene in game and how to deal with the situation where you find yourself stuck in the red jelly.
