Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the triangle key, jump to the east, then jump southwest onto the higher ground to get Goonades. (sector 38)
  2. On the exit walkway, jump northeast into the hole to get hamburgers and a piece of pie. (sector 180)
  3. At the triangle key, shoot the vent at the south end and drop down to get soda, a wooden box armor, and a Fizz-o pop. (sector 240)
  4. At the northwest end is a cave above the water. It is impossible to reach this cave normally until after you use the switch behind the circle door, which raises the water level. Once you do, go there and shoot the vent to enter it, getting a happy sphere. (sector 260)
  5. Enter the creek at the south end and swim down to a cave below that has a Paintblaster and Goonades. (thing 64 via "secret trigger" thing 67)
