    How to Find the Canyon to the Sea

    As you already know, there is a fisher who leads you his boat right? If you go to the water fall in back of the fisher. You will see there's a little river lead to the building (where the boss is) (the plant monster) if you go pass the blue eco vent on the cliff. You will see balls of blue eco if you look where the river ends you will see a little piece of land ,that is where the power cell is.

    The most difficult crystal in spider cave.

    The most difficult crystal to reach in spider cave is most deffinately the one in the water near the dark eco pool. The only way to get to it is to make a role jump by pressing L1/R1 + X in your role. You have to time it perfectly to make it but it's absolutely doable after some practice. If that's the only power cell you can't get: don't worry. There is a total of 101 power cells to collect in the game and for the alternate ending you only need 100.

    Snowy Mountain Fort

    When you get inside the Lurker Fort On Snowy Mountain, there's a big wooden structure right in front of you, climb it. Once you get the PC(power cell) next to the scout fly and orbs on the top, jump down to the platform that is the highest one.(you just jumped of it to get up to the power cell). If you look around to your back you will see another PC on a different wood structure. You have to go all the way around the fort on platforms to get to it. But, if you do a running horizontal launch (L1+square while running) from the platform your on, you can skip all the hassle of going all the way around and get another Power cell! Good Luck.
    P.S. (It may take a few tries)

    Avoid Ambush

    On Misty Island, when you go into the dark eco sylo (the huge circular arena) don't walk straight through it. You have to creep round the edge, and if you have blasted the strong boxes with the cannon, collect the precursor orbs.

    Dark Eco Pool

    To get to the dark eco pool on Misty Island go up the platform with all the barrels rolling down and blast the strong boxes with the cannon. If you then go to the side of the platform near the barrels ad jump off you will land on a platform next to the dark eco pool.

    To Beat The Big Robot in the End

    In Jak and Daxter in the end, you must beat a giant robot. This how you beat it.
    1. First he is just going to shoot at you. All you have to do is dodge the blasts.
    2. Then the silo will open a little, and these green monsters will appear. At the edge of the silo are yellow eco ( the fire ball stuff). Shoot this at the monsters and they will die.
    This is where one wrong move will kill you. The robot will then shoot these beams. It will create a ring that will go to the outside of the silo. You must jump over these.
    DON'T DOUBLE JUMP!!! If you double jump you will land right on the next ring. ( trust me ).
    4. This will be repeated. Then its easy.

    Find really hard Power Cell in Volcanic Crater.

    Go to volcanic Crater and go on the mine carts to the opening of Spider Cave. Now turn around and you will see a little metal box on the rock. (It's higher than your head so go to first person view mode and go to very edge to see it.) Now that you know where the box is, go in spider cave. Find the closes yellow Eco vent to the entrance of the cave. Power up and run as fast as you can out of the cave to the rock. To make the trip faster use rolling jumps. (run press R1 or L1 than you roll than press x and you do a long leap) and when your at the rock get to the edge or close enough and jump press box to shoot a yellow eco ball and it should home in and explode the box. The power cell comes out, get it. To find more power cells you didn't find go to the strategy guide on this site. It really helps.

    Defeat Klaww

    Collect 45 Power Cells and meet Keira by the machine to the left of the Boggy Swamp. Then talk to Keira. She will activate the machine. Then climb the cliffs until you reach the Lurker monster known as Klaww. You meet 'em, now you beat 'em. I'll cover that on Defeat Klaww Part 2.

    To defeat Klaww, avoid the giant boulders he throws at you. The last one has a Blue Eco cluster. Pick it up, race to the edge of the bridge it makes, and wait. Just avoid the boulders he throws at you right away. When he takes a while to throw the next boulder, use the Yellow Eco to blast fire balls at him. After he gets clunked on the head, run back down the bridge and back to the saftey of one of the rocks. Repeat twice. The bridge gets incomplete as you run down so much. There is one more part before you reach the Volcanic Crater. Look at Defeat Klaww Part 3.

    This is the last part of a code that gets you to the Volcanic Crater. After you defeat Klaww, hop on the rocks that appear. You see the flying Lurkers and the Communicator will come on. While you listen, head toward the Zoomer. Race to the end of the Mountain Pass. If you hit one of the barrel thingys, the Zoomer will blow up and you will die. And you will have a hard time avoiding those( There are around 300). Destroy the Lurker by the detonator and claim your Power Cell

    Opening Strong Boxes

    To open strong boxes you can either blast them with yellow eco or hit them with a bomb. To hit one with a bomb you can either get a cannon or, on Sentinel Beach you can sand next to a strong box until a-bomb lands next to you and blows it up (when the bomb lands run away and come back when it has blown up).

    Shortcut in Spider Cave

    In Spider Cave, go to the place where they are building the Precursor Robot. Ride the elevator to the 2nd floor. Go to where the box with the flames shooting out of it is. Go on the pole with the platform on it. It will take you to the other side so you don't go around the whole path.

    Taking a Trip

    Outside the bird-lady's house, by the bridge

    This is arguably an Easter Egg but for now I'm calling it a Glitch. Outside the bird-lady's house, by the bridge there is a lamp post. Sometimes if you make Jak walk by it he will trip and fall flat on his face. Theres no point to it, it's just funny. It takes a LONG time to work so try it only if you have a lot of time on your hands.
