Old Howl Battlefield is the third stage in the island of Ipsilon that serves as a tutorial on steering. There are dangerous mines scattered in the area around the insignia which can prove fatal to the player's machine.
The Core Block must traverse through the mine-filled area to reach the insignia.
The player is required to follow the instructions and create a machine capable of steering. It can be easily done without turning by making a vehicle with wheels attached to a steering block. For additional info see steering basics. An easy way to beat this level is to use a mine behind the starting block.
