        Does the chain reaction of the upgraded trowel really work? I've been trying it again and again, but the only thing that happens is that the fissure is safely removed - no chain reaction whatsoever... I've tried from layer 1, 2 and 3, and none of them activates the chain reaction... Does anyone know if it works? How do you activate it, if it really works?
