"Fumbling In The Dark" bonus level

Get the key from the Cortex Bonus Round in Jaws Of Darkness to unlock the "Fumbling In The Dark" bonus level.

"Whole Hog" bonus level

Get the key from the Cortex Bonus Round in Sunset Vista to unlock the "Whole Hog" bonus level.

Alternate ending

Jump across the Great Hall once you have all of the gems to view an alternate ending.

Colored gems

Get a "Perfect" rating on the indicated level to unlock a special colored gem. To get a "Perfect" rating, successfully complete a level with all crates smashed and no lives lost. Levels not listed below give you normal clear gems.

    Blue Gem: Perfect on Toxic Waste
    Green Gem: Perfect on The Lost City
    Orange Gem: Perfect on Generator Room
    Purple Gem: Perfect on Lights Out
    Red Gem: Perfect on Slippery Climb
    Yellow Gem: Perfect on The Lab

Infinite lives

First, unlock the Green gem by destroying all boxes without dying in "The Lost City" level. You are allowed to die in the two bonus levels of The Lost City. With the Green gem, go to the "Castle Machinery" level. It is on Island 3, at the end of the game. Jump on the Green gem platform at the start of the level to get 29 lives. Pause the game, select "Quit", then reload the auto save to make all 29 lives respawn. Load the "Castle Machinery" level again, jump on the green platform to get another 29 lives, quit out, reload auto save, and repeat as many times as desired. This is by far the quickest way to get 99 lives (takes approximately three minutes), but it requires a lot of game progress.

To farm lives early in the game, go to "The Lost City" level, near the start of Island 2. You can find bats spawning infinitely. Stand in their spawn and press X + Square to kill them repeatedly. They respawn after a few seconds and always drop fruit. Every 100 pieces of fruit give one life. You earn roughly 10 lives every 6 minutes. It is a slower method but a good way to get lives early in the game.

Using the auto save reload makes the lives respawn in all levels. Use this trick to farm lives in the first level. Keep collecting the lives and fruit in any level, quit, and reload the auto save.

Easy masks

Repeat the first level to easily find masks.

Clearing obstacles

On levels such as "Road To Nowhere", you can jump onto the ropes on the side and easily clear most of the obstacles. To keep from falling off the rope, you need to jump forward repeatedly on the rope.

Defeating Papu Papu

When you arrive, Papu Papu will be sleeping. You will have two Aku Akus. He will spin his club. When this happens, go on his seat to dodge it. He will then bring the club up to hit you. Dodge that as well. Then, jump on his head. Repeat the above steps twice to defeat Papu Papu.
