|Desert of Dijiridoos|
Shooting Me Softly is the seventh and last level of the Desert of Dijiridoos, the second world in Rayman Origins. It acts as a transition between the Desert of Dijiridoos and the Gourmand Land, in a similar way to the first part of Bongo Hills in the MS-DOS version of Rayman.
Shortly into the level, Rayman reaches the mosquito. As they fly through the level, they must face Helmet Birds, small yellowish-orange birds, and Red Birds, while also avoiding big, spiky birds. At times, the mosquito must shoot drums to bounce its shots into other things, such as switches. Eventually, there are also bats to deal with, and the mosquito must shoot the yellow circles in order to open a path for itself.
After this, they reach a new area, which starts off with nothing but clouds, but clears up to show the ocean in the background with glaciers and ice formations. Here, Rayman and the mosquito must avoid flying objects that explode when shot, and then they fly through icy passages and must avoid spiky fruit. After a short time, the screen starts to move faster, and the floor and ceiling move to meet each other, requiring the mosquito to move quickly in order to avoid getting crushed. After this, Rayman is able to get off the mosquito, and after going through the next door, he can break the Electoon cage and end the level.
