A guide detailing secrets and coins hidden on the world map and details secrets that you can find in the game. Find the full list below:
You will be introduced to the world map, where you can interact with NPC’s and enter levels.
Without further ado, here is a (possibly not-so-hidden) path you can take.
Follow along the river and head north until you come to a natural overpass.
Simply head up and hang a right along the bend the river makes, and you’ll find yourself here.
If not unlocked already, you will get the “Corner Cutter” achievement for discovering your first shortcut.
First, locate the chipper-looking fellow and examine the trees to the side of him. Though not shown in the screenshot, you should notice some yellow among the branches, approximated to be shown in red.
You may have to desperately mash keys towards the hidden coin until the coin is in your possession.
The second area is a carnival-like setting. There are secrets to be found here, too.
As soon as you enter the area, you will no doubt have found the barbershop trio, who are missing their fourth man.
You can find him after the Madame Von Bon Bon (Sugarland Shimmy) fight. Examine the tent to the left shown here. Go to the back and around, and you should find him.
While you do not get a coin out of this, you can be treated to a song performed by the (now reunited) quartet.
Go to the “Aviary Action” stage area. You can go around and behind the bird house, and travel behind some mountainside and find yourself on the other side of the map.
Return and speak with the candy girl next to the “Aviary Action” area, and she will give you a coin for your troubles. Also, you can speak with the juggler after you have successfully parried four times in a row without touching the ground, and you can get a coin as a reward.
A coin is hidden behind this shack, approximated by red.
The big city has its fair share of hidden goodies
A hidden path near the junkyard can take you to the theater, bypassing several bosses and levels. Make your way to the junkyard. By past experience with things not being as they seem, walk under the crane and make your way around, Until you’ve reached the theatre.
Go on, take it. I won’t stop you.
