Version History [HIS]// //////////////////////////// Version 0.1 (10/15/08) - I had recently just gotten 100% completion so I decided to start anew on another file. Then I remembered the lack of guides for this game at the time of its release and decided I'd make a guide for the secret maps as I collected them in the game. This version, I call, "The Idea". Version 0.5 (10/19/08) - This version is the notes that I wrote out on a couple of pieces of paper. Every time I got a map, I would pause and write out where it was and how I got it. These are rough notes (I can't leave the game on pause forever after all). Version 1.0 (10/28/08) - The first full version of the guide. Enjoy reading, and feel free to send feedback! Version 1.01 (11/10/08) - A small update. Added level numbers, and gave permissions for more sites to use this guide. ///////////////////////// //2. Introduction [INT]// ///////////////////////// This guide is here to help you to find the 12 secret maps found in Wario Land: Shake It! The Secret Maps are are invisible at first, but if you beat all 6 bosses you'll unlock 2 helpful features. One is that the levels that the maps are in will be revealed on the Main Map, which you won't need if you read this guide at all. The second is that the spots where the maps are in the levels will sparkle, which can help a lot with your searching. Beating all 6 bosses is not necessary to gets the maps, however, and in writing the rough notes for this guide I collected them all before beating the last boss. When you reach a map's location, getting it out is simple. Just use an Earthshake Punch at the location by shaking the Wii Remote while on the ground. The Map will pop out of the ground and then you need only touch it to collect it. A couple of them are hidden well, but now you have all you need to find them. Just read on! ///////////////////// //3. The Maps [MAP]// ///////////////////// Here is what you came for. The names of each map are the destinations that they lead to. ---------- Secret Map #1 - 1-5 - Disturbing Tomb Located in - 1-2 - Whoopsy Desert Head for the first room with cannons in it. Shoot yourself up to the top floor on the right side. Jump across to a small ledge that has a lone large silver coin floating over it. Earthshake Punch where the coin is. ---------- Secret Map #2 - 1-6 - Gurgle Gulch Located in - 1-3 - Foulwater Falls Head for the area that starts with several wood and stone blocks, a metal block, and 2 large money bags on a ledge above the stone and wood blocks. Head to the right and go across the 2 rope swings to the ledge above. Keep heading right by breaking the 2 stone blocks holding the black block up to drop it. Jump up and near the wall you'll see a sign pointing up and to the left. The map is located between that sign and the wall to the right of it. ---------- Secret Map #3 - 2-5 - Sneak Peak Located in - 2-3 - Mt. Lava Lava This is the first of only 2 maps where you can only get it under the pressures of the time limit. First, reach the checkpoint and hit it just in case. Free the Merfle then DROP down the hole. DO NOT ground pound your way down it.Once down, get right next to the metal block on the left and and Earthshake Punch there to set the bomb blocks off. Then RUN, as fast asyou can to the left, quickly breaking stone blocks to get through and then jump onto the rope swing. If the boulder hits you, pause and hit Retry on the menu. Once the boulder passes, Earthshake Punch right below the rope to reveal the map. ---------- Secret Map #4 - 2-6 - Lowdown Depths Located in - 2-5 - Sneak Peak This is the first of 4 Secret Maps hidden in areas only available from other Secret Maps. Reach the room that starts with 2 ropes, a large gold coin high up, and several metal blocks blocking a hole downward. Use the ropes to get higher up to Mega Ground Pound through the hole. This causes a huge boulder to start rolling, and whether or not you want to avoid it is up to you. After the boulder sinks into the lava, head all the way to the left. It seems to be empty, but don't be fooled. Earthshake Punch next to the leftmost wall to reveal the map. ---------- Secret Map #5 - 3-5 - Neon City Located in - 3-4 - Glittertown In the large area with the long set of geysers that have 3 varying levels (blue and short, pink and short, white and tall), head for the right side of the geysers. Climb up the ladder and use the tall geysers to get to a small ledge with a small money bag on it. Get rid of the bag by shaking it or any other way you want to, then Earthshake Punch where it was sitting to reveal the map. ---------- Secret Map #6 - 3-6 - Derailed Express Located in - 3-5 - Neon City Reach the first area where the slot machine has 2 bombs, 2 enemies, 1 flame, and 1 snowflake. The area will also have a red switch, which should be left on. Get a bomb from the slot machine and shake it to put the fuse out, stopping the countdown and making this easier. Head for the metal block at the top of the red block stairs. To destroy it, either throw the bomb at it, or set the bomb next to it and reactivate it. Behind the metal block is a large money bag. Get it out of the way and Earthshake Punch where it was to reveal the map. ---------- Secret Map #7 - 4-5 - Launchpad Labyrinth Located in - 4-3 - Airytale Castle Go to the large area right after the first Rocket Bucket area. Get on top of the room's only "!" pillar and Earthshake Punch to raise the pillar. There will be 4 horizontal platforms to your left. From the pillar jump from platform to platform till you're on the the third platform from the bottom. Crouch down and crawl through the narrow tunnel on the left to the small area that contains a small money bag. Get rid of the bag and Earthshake Punch where it was to get the map. ---------- Secret Map #8 - 4-6 - Riverbloat Rapids Located in - 4-4 - Soggybog River In the small area with the vine wall covered with small silver coins and where the camera is zoomed out slightly, just as you enter the area go close to the water's edge and Earthshake Punch to reveal the map. ---------- Secret Map #9 - 4-7 - Prism Prison Located in - 4-6 - Riverbloat Rapids Reach the area that's right before the area with the Merfle. Go up a pipe in that area that is located behind a flame block. In the area you just entered, jump across the logs. On the other side, light yourself on fire on the left side of the flame, so that your first bounce will be against the flame block. Still flaming, jump across the river and back to strengthen the blaze and break the block. Behind it is a diamond, but it is not the real prize of this bonus area, as a quick Earthshake Punch where that diamond is reveals the map. ---------- Secret Map #10 - 5-5 - Bamboozle Village Located in - 5-3 - Slipshod Slopes GO to the first ice cave area. In the bottom right part of the area you'll see some water and a small gap above it. Swim across the water to find a small section with a diamond floating above your goal, the map. ---------- Secret Map #11 - 5-6 - Freezing Fields Located in - 5-5 - Bamboozle Village Reach the area right before the area with the Merfle, it which there are four single springs going up a steep wall and spikes ready to hurt you if you bounce too high. Use the springs carefully to go up, and at the third spring bounce up and left into a small section of the building. There you'll find a small bag. The map is hidden beneath it. ---------- Secret Map #12 - 5-7 - Boogie Mansion Located in - 5-4 - Bad Manor The second "pressure" map, which means reach and strike the checkpoint first. Free the Merfle then make sure that you Ground Pound down the hole. This sends you straight down so you avoid having to shrink, and you need to be big in the next area and to use the Earthshake Punch. Head left into the next area, then jump from rope to rope to the next area. Use the Max Fastosity Dasherator on the first set of blocks, then crash into the wall to stop. Jump up and walk over to the next set of blocks and Earthshake Punch there to reveal the map. ---------- //////////////////// //4.
