Hello and welcome to the 100 coin shine FAQ. This FAQ will show you how to get
100 coins in each of the worlds to get the 100 coin shine. I am writing this 
as several of worlds in the game are hard to get 100 coins with, so I will tell
you in-depth where the coins are and strategies of how to get them.

By the way, this is my first FAQ and I hope all goes well... :P

                              2. HINTS AND TIPS
                            ---------------------
===============================================================================

If you have trouble finding coins and such, use these hints and tips. I would
in fact advise you to read them before using guide, so you can follow my
terminology.

- First of all, know the game. Not like inside out, but so you know the moves
and game mechanics well. This will help a lot. And also actually complete the
episode before the getting the coins on it so you know what to watch out for.

- Learn how to side jump, back flip and do a spinning jump like a pro, as
you need them quite a lot.

- Look everywhere. I have told you were they are, but if you find that you 
cannot find them, look in the area I have pointed you in and you should find
them a treat!

- Use the brackets at the end of each point wisely. Go for the coins that
are not to hard and time taking, yet offer quite a lot (I will also advise you
on these).

- Red coins do not add to your coin total.

- Blue coins do not add to your coin total.

- Don't die, or enter a special stage. This will mean that you will lose the
coins in that episode, which you don't want.

                                3. COIN LISTS
                              -----------------
===============================================================================

The layout will be as so - I will introduce the area, and the episode that I
am covering that I find to be the best level to get 100 coins in. IT WILL
NOT BE IN THE FORM OF A WALKTHROUGH, but as a list of just about all the coins
you can possibly get in the episode. I have done it this way to give you a bit
of freedom so that you can see what coins you want to get, as some coins are
harder to get than others. At the end of each point in the list is a number in
brackets (eg. (2)). This shows the amount of coins covered in that point. If
there is a plus, it means that there are at least that amount of coins, if not
more. I hope you find that this will give you freedom so that you can collect
what coins what you want to collect, and make it more fun also. :)

(The list, by the way, is in a sort of order anyways).

Good luck hunting down those coins :P

 3.01. DELFINO PLAZA
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

This is the easiest area in the game to get 100 coins in, and also has 2 
methods. One is just getting the coins from the plaza itself, and the other 
(a more cheaper way) is to get them from the airstrip. I will go through both 
methods and you can decide with is better for you.

--------
Method 1
--------

- An absolute must in this level is to explore the sewer system fully.
When you begin the area, there is a sewer lid right in front of you (in front
of the Bianco Hills / Pianta statue). Butt slam it to enter the sewer, then
follow these directions - (Note at any point you get confused, follow 
Squit100's fantastic underground map on the Super Mario Sunshine FAQ list on
GameFAQs) -

Forward, then left, the next right, round the corner. Collect the 9 coins in 
this area, then go north to another area with 9 coins. Go back to the last 
area, and exit straight ahead. Take a left, right at the end, round the corner
and collect the coins. Go back round the corner to where the sewer lid is, and
go straight on. At the end go left round the corner, then the next right. 
Check the area for 9 coins, then another one that links to it for another nine.
Now back to the straight, carry on down it. Turn right and collect the line 
of coins further up. Then go back, and escape from using the sewer lid at the
corner. 

Now make your way to where the cannon is where you go to Pinna Park. Next to 
here is a another sewer lid, enter it via butt slamming. Walk down it
to get 9 coins that are in a line. Now exit at the next lid, where you should
be on a building next to a crate. Drop down the side nearest the sea. Run down
towards where the cannon is - except on the way stop after you hover over the
canal gap, where there is a another sewer lid. Enter it, and walk down it. Turn
on the next left, and left again, and go straight ahead. Collect the coins to 
the end of the passage, then turn 180 degrees, and turn down the next left for
another line of coins.

Now make your way out of the sewer system, and to the beach next to the light
house and market stalls. On the beach there is an umbrella on it with no one
underneath it. Stand there, then take a few steps to the sea, then a few
towards the lighthouse. Butt Slam, and if you are in the right position, you
should go into a secret sewer. Here are 8 coins and an extra life. Overall,
by searching through all the sewer system you will get most of the coins you
need. (99)

- To get the final coins, walk out to sea from the beach and collect the 6 
coins. 

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| SHINE LOCATION - It's located over the platform in the sea, opposite the    |
| Pianta statue, you will see it. To get to it, swim out to it, then either   |
| use the rocket FLUDD pack, or get on one of the boats that come near by,    |
| then hover onto the platform.                                               |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+

--------
Method 2
--------

(NOTE - THIS CAN ONLY BE DONE AFTER THE GAME IS COMPLETE)

This method involves going into the airstrip to get the 100 coins you need for
the shine. To start off, you need 10 coins for the boat to the airstrip. The 
easiest was to find 10 coins is to either get them from the underground
system, or by going to the beach opposite the market stalls. Here, go out into
the sea to collect the ring of six coins and root the secret sewer place for
coins (the location is described near the end of method 1).

Once you have your 10 coins, make your way to the airstrip (the boat near the
blue coin trade hut and speak to the dancing Pianta in shades). 

There, run and collect the grey FLUDD pack over on the left. Using the speed
pack, follow the trail of gold coins down towards the building and through it.
When you are through the other side, stop and look down the runway. You see
an obscene amount of coins and orange baddies. Collect the line of coins. Then
kill all the orange baddies, by jumping on their heads, and be sure to collect
the coin they each leave behind (there are 14 baddies here, 14 coins). 

Now you will resume that coin path to the right of those water tanks. Using 
the speed pack, follow the path of coins, until you come back onto the
airstrip. If you miss some coins (which you are bound to) repeat the path or
go swim for them. You can also get another 2 coins by washing the M signatures
off the tanks on the airstrip. (144)

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| SHINE LOCATION - On top of the tall water tank on the airstrip. To get      |
| there, side jump or back flip onto the smaller tank next to it, then side   | 
| jump or back flip onto the tall water tank.                                 |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+

OVERALL COIN TOTAL - 144

(Note - After collecting the 100 coin shine on the airstrip, you will return
to the plaza, and you will still have the same amount of coins. So if you
want to max out the coin record for the plaza to 999 coins, just repeat getting
the coins from the airstrip).

 3.02. BIANCO HILLS
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

The best episode to get 100 coins is on Episode 8 - The Red Coins of the Lake.
This isn't that tricky to get coins in, if you know where to look (heh).
It's very possible to more than 80 coins before going up the rope system that
is over the lake.

- Around the level are baddies disguised as plants. They are hidden in the 
ground on their own or in a circle of plants, and when you approach them they
spring up and attack you. Jump on them for one coin, but better still, spray
them into a wall to get 3 coins. They are located around the buildings by the 
river, or around the grey dividing wall. (10+)

- Around the level you may notice a circle of plants with pink leaves. After
you have disposed of the baddies disguised in those circle, stand in the 
middle and do a 360 spray. This will spray all the plants so they open up, 
and when they all open up, you will receive 6 coins. There are 3 circles 
before the dividing wall, and 2 after it. These coins are essential to 
get. (30)

- Spraying one of the beehives gives you a coin after it falls (the beehive
is located on a tree after the dividing wall.) (1)

- Getting Yoshi and eating the bees at the beehives at the location above
earns you a coin per bee. There are 3 to a beehive, 2 beehives, 6 bees.
To get extra coins, spit Yoshis spit at the beehives until it falls. This will
add another coin, and a load of bees will follow you. I think its best to
run around in circles and tap B so you avoid the bees better, but there is
still a chance that you will get thrown off still. There are about 10 bees here
but you need to collect the coins quickly as they disappear fast. Now do that
same with the other bee hive on the other tree to get more coins. Yay.

Yoshi is found at the start of the level to your right; make note of what
fruit he wants, then go to where the beehives are and there fruits on the
ground around that area. Grab the fruit he wants and go back to the egg to
get Yoshi. Be sure not to go into any water when you are riding him...
but you knew that, right? Thanks to 'Standwielder_Jotaro' (a.k.a - Zaro)
for this information. (30)

- Spraying the tall windmill platforms around the dividing wall may give you a 
coin - not all of them do though. Spray the rotor part until it spins really
fast and until a coin appears on top. (2+)

- There are black enemies with yellow petals on top. To kill these, spray them
from a distance when they are not buried in the ground. When they are dazed, 
jump on top of them to get a coin. (3+)

- There are several standing caterpillars around the level - wait until they
fall over and then jump on them - this results in a coin per baddie (2+)

- After the dividing wall there are several trees, with black baddies on them.
Some of these trees have a coin on top them already, whereas some others you
have to spray the centres to get a coin. There are 5 trees that produce the
coins here (5)

- The following load of coins are located on top of the lake, in sets of 4.
On set is on the right side of the lake, another is to the right of the 
windmill, around the back is another set, and on the left side of the windmill
is another set. These are easy coins to get and I HIGHLY recommend that you
collect them :P (12)

- There are a line of four under the mesh like bridge over the lake (on the 
way to the windmill). To get under there, bounce off one of the ropes below.
(4)

- Over the lake is a system of ropes that connect some of the high platforms
together, with many of the ropes having coins above them. To get up there,
go to the ledge on the right side of the lake (where the first old school
level in this world is) and use the nearby platforms and ropes to make your
way up there (towards the big windmill if that helps). There are 25 coins here,
but they are tricky to get (especially with those ANNOYING wind baddies that 
tend to knock you off the platforms), so I would advise you to seek out the
other coins first. (25+)

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| SHINE LOCATION - It's on one of the windmill platforms next to the grey     |
| dividing wall.                                                              |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+

APPROX COIN TOTAL - 160+

 2.03. RICCO HARBOR
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

The episode I will be covering here is Episode 3 - The Caged Shine Sprit. 
This is one of the hardest, most annoying levels to get coins on, as they
are spaced out everywhere, and there are those wind enemies that knock you off
platforms in certain places. I would really advise you to cover ALL the points
below. (NOTE - When I refer to the blue girder system, I mean the blue girders
that are located over the water around the yellow shine cage).

- When you start, there are some crates behind you to the left. Smash them all
to get 3 coins (3)

- Butt Stomp a sewer cover (one near where you begin) and totally explore the
sewer system. It's very linear, so no need for directions. Make sure you jump
up all the exits and they are lined with coins. This will earn you 38 coins -
very easy to get and THEY ARE ESSENTIAL. (38)

- At the red / black boat located next to the tower surrounded by girders,
do a side jump / back flip on to the tall black funnel on the boat. Look
towards the yellow cage area, and you will see a moving crane that moves a
platform in an arc. Hover onto the top of the crane and stand on the tip to
bag 8 coins. Then travel to the base of the crane to get another 4 coins. (12)

- Next to the big oil slick in the middle of the level is an orange platform
with a blue arrow on it. Dive under this for four coins (4)

- There are plenty of white octopuses in this level (they are on the blue
girder system that's high up in the level in various places). Just explore
the blue girder system to find them. Jump on them to get 1 coin, and if they
are hanging under girders spray them to drop them off. (17+)

- At the white ship (located next to where you start the episode), there
are girders suspended over it. Side jump / back flip on it and collect the 8
coins. (8)

- To the right of the tower (surrounded by girders) and to the left of the
fountain is a white girder high up ish with 7 coins on it. To reach here,
work your way up the blue girder system, or boost up there with a rocket
nozzle. (7)

- On one of the lower levels of the blue girder system, nearest the tower, you
will find a grew arrow sign and a red arrow sign. Beyond that is a moving hook
so travel across that and climb the mesh after it. At the top, hop of the
girder behind and travel to the end for 2 Coins. After these, do a 180 turn
and run back, round the corner, then to the end. Here, drop down to the side
(look before you drop) for another 2 coins. While you are doing this, be
hasty as those annoying wind baddies will pester you. (4)

- Between the yellow cage and the white boat (the one near where you started
the episode), a few levels up the blue girder structure is a gap with
two vertical girders in it. Between the two vertical girders are 7 coins, and
using walls jumps between them to collect them. (7)

- When you reach the first springboard on the blue girder system (it will have
arrows either side and a red nozzle box nearby) there is a girder that goes
along side it (its RIGHT next to the yellow cage). At the end of this girder is
4 coins. (4)

- After jumping up the first springboard, run about halfway along the girder
and look to the right - there is a girder below that you can drop down to.
Jump down to it, then follow it round the corner, straight along and right
at the end. Here is a line of 4 coins vertically going down off the end,
which you will need to drop down and collect. (4)

- Near the edge of the level (the red flagged barrier out in the sea) are
coins high up (in two lines, spaced out). There are two sets of 4, side by
side, as shown below-


                       |
         *        *    |
                       |
         *        *    |
                       |
         *        *    |
                       |
         *        *    |
                       |

| = Barrier
* = Coin

Use the rocket pack to collect the coins. (8)

- At the tower surrounded by girders use a rocket pack to get up the platforms
surrounding it. One of the platforms has two coins on, then from the top of the
tower use the rocket pack again to collect a vertical line of seven coins (9).

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| SHINE LOCATION - Next to the fruit dispensing device (near the fountain and |
| helipad).                                                                   |

 2.04. GELATO BEACH
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

The episode for this one is Episode 8, The Watermelon Festival. Getting the
100 coin shine in this level is tough, so get all the coins that are here.

- When you start, turn around and run to the island in the sea that has
several large palm trees on it. Climb each tree to get four coins off each one,
then use the swing that is hanging off one of the trees. Squirt the nozzle so
that you collect the five coins in the swings path. (17)

- On the main beach area and on the large green ledge just up the mountain
(the one with the three large mirrors) there are lots of round red baddies
with beaks walking around. If you spray
one of them, it will be dazed, then quickly jump on it to get a coin.
Do this with all these on the beach and the green ledge with each you 26 coins,
so it's an essential you do this one. (26)

- There are seven coins under the juice smoothie place (the hut in the water).
Just get to the back of it and dive underneath it. (7)

- Popping the watermelons will earn you coins. To pop them, run them into
wall or off a cliff. Once they are popped, collect the coin, and go back to
where it was before - another will grow in its place, and you can pop it again
and again to get coins. After about 7-10 times, you they will not produce more
coins. You find one on the west of the beach (near the juice smoothie place),
one next to the fruit shack on the beach, and the last one is located at the 
very top of the area (its the biggest watermelon). To get there, Get to the
ledge where you have the three mirrors and spray the bud in that alcove to
create a set of stairs. Go up them, take a left at the turn and follow the
path. (25+)

- On the beach there is a fruit shack, (located on the right side of the beach)
and under the ceiling is four coins. (4)

- On the right side of the area is a ledge in the mountain side, with six coins
with a red nozzle box. To get there, use either the rocket pack or hover from
the nearby green ledge.

- At the top of the level (where the biggest watermelon is) there are bouncy
ropes where green birds hang around. Spray them under they turn into turn into
coins. (8)

- By the left most mirror is a wooden umbrella / shack type thing (it has a
beehive underneath it). Get on top of it and use a rocket nozzle pack to get
the eight coins that are in a vertical line above. (8)

- At the top of the level where the biggest watermelon is, follow the path
that heads in the direction of the juice smoothie place. At the end of the path
drop down and collect the two coins. (2)

- At the top of the level where the biggest watermelon is, side jump / backflip
onto the ropes around that area, and follow the rope in the direction of the 
juice smoothie place. Jump up to the taller ropes and at the highest one, is
4 coins lined up for you to collect. (4)

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| SHINE LOCATION - Where there is a weird circle shape that comes from the    |
| south west part of the beach, you will find your shine.                     |

Hmm, a cheap method this, but it makes it a lot easier. The episode for this is
Episode 2 - The Beach Cannon's Secret. 

In this episode, there will be bullets coming from the cannon aimed at Mario.
As they are coming towards you, spray them to make them explode and release
their coin stash. There are three types of bullet that will be fired from the
cannon -

Black linear = 2 coins
Fires in a linear path that doesn't change direction. Very common.

Purple homing = 2 coins
These ones home in on you, so watch out. These are also very common.

Golden bullet = 8 coins
These are rare, but hold lots of coins. Always spray these.

It's best to stay in one position and spray them as they come towards you.
Then quickly collect the coins they release (as they disappear quickly) and
return to the position you where last, and repeat. Going too close to the
cannon means he will stop firing and throw walking bombs instead, so stay at a
reasonable distance (but not too far away). This will not take long at all, and
the bullets will not stop coming so you can get 999 coins in this episode.

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| SHINE LOCATION - It's located at where you start the level.                 |

sections, and I will use some ASCII art to make things easier too. Remember
that once you enter the hotel you cannot go to the outside again, and if you
enter the casino you cannot return back to the hotel.

-------
Outside
-------

- There are three crates to the far left of where you begin - smash all three
to earn a coin and an extra life. (1)

- Outside the hotel entrance are huts to the left and right. The right hut
has one coin inside it's ceiling and the left hut has two under the ceiling (3)

- In the middle of the area is a stand thing on fire - put out the flame to get
one whole coin. You earned it. (1)

- Putting out all the torches either side of the hotel entrance earns you
seven coins (and one blue coin if you haven't got it already). (7)

- There is a ledge halfway up the hotel outside. Do a spin jump and then hover
to get up there (..just) and then at the front put out the two torches to get
a coin from each. (2)

OUTSIDE COIN TOTAL - 14

--------------------
Inside Hotel Floor 1
--------------------

- To the left and right of the entrance are two lines of four coins (8)

- In the center of the floor are four torches - by each of these is a coin (4)

- Hose all the ten torches on this floor to receive a coin each from them.(10)

- On the west side of this floor is a Pianta at a desk. Go behind him to find
two coins (2)

- Spray the plant in the ladies toilets to receive a coin. (1)

While I'm here I'll cover the Casino too, ja?

------
Casino
------

Remember, once you come in here, you cannot go out.

- There are a set of slot machines on the left. Butt slam the top of each
machine to get a different amount of coins...
6 produce 1 coin each
1 produce 3 coins
One spews out a blue coin. So that's a total of nine coins. (9)

- There are a set of slot machines on the right. Butt slam the top of each
machine to get a different amount of coins...
6 produce 1 coin each
1 produce 3 coins
1 produce 5 coins
So that's a total of nine coins. (14)

- Spraying the left fountain gives you one coin. (1)

- There is a slot machine on the right side of the casino, where to spin the
dials you have to spray into the golden hole. The dials then spin and you get
a prize (which comes from the same golden hole). The prizes are as follows-
3 Ghosts = 1 Ghost
3 coins  = 3 Coins
3 sevens = End slot machine
Once you get three sevens, the slot machine is unusable. But as you can have
unlimited goes until then, you can get up to 999 coins, but I wouldn't risk 
it. 

CASINO COIN TOTAL (WITHOUT SLOTS) - 24
CASINO COIN TOTAL (WITH SLOTS) - 24 to 999

There are two methods for this level, one for Episode 2 - The Boss of Tricky
Ruins, and the other for Episode 8 - The Red Coin Fish. Episode 8 IS easier and
quicker to get the 100 coin shine with, but involves an underwater section
which some people may detest doing, so the other method is there. Do which one
is better for you.

--------
Method 1
--------

I will be covering Episode 2 - The Boss of Tricky Ruins. This is another tough
area to get 100 coins in, with some horrid coins to get. You can miss some
coins from the list, but I would aim to get them all. (NOTE - Here I refer to
green platforms, on the far right of the level is a system of green ledges and
such - I'm referring to them).

- When you begin, look to the left and you should see a line of white floating
bobbing platforms, each having one coin on. There are five platforms, a
bouncy platform and another white one after that. Collect the coins off the
first five platforms, that bounce up into the air to collect the line of ten 
coins. After that, drop down to the next white platform to get another
coin. (16)

- In the boat hire place (next to the waterfall), smash all the crates in and
around it to get yourself a healthy seven coins. (7)

- Next to the boat hire place is a boat (fair enough). Get in it, and if you
look out to the water you will see a large oval of coins. Moving the boat using
your squirt nozzle, direct yourself to them. Remember not to touch the water
as it is polluted. This is annoying to direct the boat, but keep at it. (20)

- Where the waterfall is, dive under to the left of it to see a line of coins
going down to the seabed. Follow and collect these coins (a total of ten) and
there is an extra life at the bottom also. Beware of the fish mind.. (10)

- To the right of the waterfall there is a giant stalk thing with platforms
that go all around it. At the top of it, go to the ledge above and to the right
is a red arrow sign that's pointing to the right. To the right is a brown tile
on the wall, which when you spray reveals an alcove. WITH A COIN! (1)

- If you continue up the green ledges, you will see an arrow pointing left.
To the right of this is an alcove, with a brown tile next to it - spray the
tile to create an alcove, with a coin. (1)

- When you get high enough up the green ledges (I would say that the sign and
two alcoves covered in the last point is a good place) hover over to the bunch
of green ledges to the far right. When your there, use a mixture of side jumps,
back flips and hovers to get to the very top ledge. Collect the rocket nozzle
box and use it to get the vertical line of coins above the highest ledge. (9)

- Hmmm... Now brace yourself, cos this is long. Where the old noki is in the
level (to the left of the boat hire), spray the tile above him to reveal a maze
that you have to go through. Using wall jumps, take the right route until you
get out. Now go left until you reach an arrow on a ledge slightly below you.
Drop down to that ledge and below to the left, is a platform that sticks out.
Jump down to that. Enter the alcove, and travel down the tunnel inside it. At
the end, spray the tile on the wall to make the wall push back. Now wall jump
this long vertical gap. Enter the second hole to the left. Follow the tunnel
and drop down the chute at the end. There is now an alcove to your right and
on the adjacent wall, an alcove with two tiles. Hover to there, then fall down
the right hand side to get back to the tile that pushes the wall back. Squirt
the tile, and wall jump again. Now enter the 3rd hole on the left, follow the
tunnel and drop down, then make your way back to the tile that pushes the wall
back again. Squirt and wall jump again, but this time the second hole on the
right (near the second and third holes to the left). Follow it to the end and
drop out the end. Now go left and fall so that you are at the very bottom of
that long vertical shaft. Now wall jump to the hole on the left, and follow the
tunnel through, at the end there is an alcove to the top left - go in. You
will be propelled up to the very top. Climb the tree ahead and get the coin
from the top of it. I would advise that you should do some of this as there are
a lot of coins to be had here... so if you find this too hard or whatever,
then go to the base of the shaft and wall jump to the left hole at least. (65)

- Go to the maze where the old noki is, and at the top go right. There will be
three octopuses here, so jump on their heads and collect the coins after they
are gone. (3)

- After the first maze, spray the tile that is located to the far right of it.
This will reveal another maze, with four alcoves (4 coins) along the bottom and
4 alcoves (3 coins) along the top. The bottom ones can be gotten to via side
jumps or backflips. The top alcoves are harder to get, however.. jump out of
the maze at the top, then hover at the level of the alcoves and manoeuvre
yourself into the alcoves. This takes up time, so you *might* have to redo the
maze activation, but take your time. (7)

- At the end of the second maze, you will run into that big octopus boss again.
There are three small octopuses here also, so jump on their heads to get coins,
then climb the trees. On the top of each of the two trees are five coins
(although you may want to save them in case you get hurt by the boss). (13)

- When the boss has been disposed of, jump down the tunnel it was sitting on.
At the bottom, spray the jars that are within the walls to get a coin (and if
you haven't got them already, a few blue coins too). Also get the six coins
around the shine spite - BUT DO NOT GET THE SHINE HERE!! When you are done,
you can exit via the gap in the wall opposite the main jar wall. You will
arrive by the waterfall. (7)

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| SHINE LOCATION - Travel up the green ledges, to where the arrow sign and    |
| two alcoves are. Here, look out to the level and you will see a giant shell |
| with a flag on top ahead of you. Now jump and hover over to it. Get to the  |
| top, and  cross the rope that connects the two shells together. At the end  |
| of the rope is your shine. SHINE GET!                                       |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+

APPROX COIN TOTAL - 159+

Method 2
--------

This method covers Episode 8 - The Red Coin Fish. This is easier and quicker
than the other one mind. A huge thank you for thaMANSTA and Anton Fors for
notifying me about this method. You can get over 100 coins from the 
underwater section alone, so if you wish you can skip straight there.

---
These are points before going underwater to where the red coin fish is-
---

- Where the waterfall is, dive under to the left of it to see a line of coins
going down to the seabed. Follow and collect these coins (a total of ten) and
there is an extra life at the bottom also. Beware of the fish mind.
Also, DO NOT touch the water fall as you will go to the underwater section
and so because of this, you may not want to do this point. (10)

- In the boat hire place (next to the waterfall), smash all the crates in and
around it to get yourself a healthy seven coins. (7)

- Hmmm... Now brace yourself, cos this is long. To the left of the boat 
hire, spray the tile above him to reveal a maze that you have to go through.
Using wall jumps, take the right route until you get out. Now go left until
you reach an arrow on a ledge slightly below you. Drop down to that ledge and
below to the left, is a platform that sticks out. Jump down to that.
Enter the alcove, and travel down the tunnel inside it. At the end,
spray the tile on the wall to make the wall push back. Now wall jump
this long vertical gap. Enter the second hole to the left. Follow the tunnel
and drop down the chute at the end. There is now an alcove to your right and
on the adjacent wall, an alcove with two tiles. Hover to there, then fall down
the right hand side to get back to the tile that pushes the wall back. Squirt
the tile, and wall jump again. Now enter the 3rd hole on the left, follow the
tunnel and drop down, then make your way back to the tile that pushes the wall
back again. Squirt and wall jump again, but this time the second hole on the
right (near the second and third holes to the left). Follow it to the end and
drop out the end. Now go left and fall so that you are at the very bottom of
that long vertical shaft. Now wall jump to the hole on the left, and follow the
tunnel through, at the end there is an alcove to the top left - go in. You
will be propelled up to the very top. Climb the tree ahead and get the coin
from the top of it. (65)

- To the right of the waterfall there is a giant stalk thing with platforms
that go all around it. At the top of it, go to the ledge above and to the right
is a red arrow sign that's pointing to the right. To the right is a brown tile
on the wall, which when you spray reveals an alcove. WITH A COIN! (1)

- If you continue up the green ledges, you will see an arrow pointing left.
To the right of this is an alcove, with a brown tile next to it - spray the
tile to create an alcove, with a coin. (1)

- After the first wall maze, spray the tile that is located to the far right
of it. This will reveal another maze, with four alcoves (4 coins) along the 
bottom and 4 alcoves (3 coins) along the top. The bottom ones can be gotten to 
via side jumps or backflips. The top alcoves are harder to get, however.. jump 
out of the maze at the top, then hover at the level of the alcoves and 
manoeuvre yourself into the alcoves. This takes up time, so you *might*
have to redo the maze activation, but take your time. (7)

- Where the octopus boss was (the highest green ledge), there are two trees.
There is a coin above each of these trees. (2)

- Where the octopus boss was, jump down the tunnel there. At the bottom,
spray the jars that are within the walls to get a coin (and if
you haven't got them already, a few blue coins too). Also get the six coins
around a green mushroom. When you are done, you can exit via the gap in the 
wall opposite the main jar wall. You will arrive by the waterfall. (7)

APPROX TOTAL COINS - 100

---
These are points underwater where the red coin fish is. To get here, touch
the waterfall.
---

- There are columns all around the edge of this area - some have either 6 or
7 coins on. There are a total of 6 columns here, be sure to get them. (38)

- At the far end of the level near the bottom is an open area surrounded by
large alcoves. There is a large group of these alcoves, with a row of coins
within them (either a row of 3 or 6 coins). Be sure to collect these. (36)

- The fish, of which is made of normal and red coins, is located swimming 
around where the alcoves described above are. Just swim into them to collect 
them. Sometimes the fish will sort of explode, where the coins will be spread
out massively. When this happens just go after the odd coins nearest until
it returns to its original fish shaped form. A nice idea is to go from above
diagonally into the fish, meaning that you get a load at a time. The red coins
don't add to your total so be sure to use no effort collecting them. (30)

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| SHINE LOCATION - Where the open area is surrounded by alcoves, is a short   |
| column by the areas edge. It is floating above this column.                 |
+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+

APPROX TOTAL COINS - 104

APPROX TOTAL COINS (BOTH AREAS) - 204

--------
Method 3
--------

This is yet another method, submitted by Luc Bloom. This one takes place on
episode 6, The Shell's Secret. He found that this was the easiest to work on
(I haven't tried it myself however) to get the 100 coins. The following is
his own wording..

- Behind you, from where you start, there is a path of 50 coins in the water.
EASY!
- Then underneath the waterfall, 10.
- Optional, very easy crates at the panda's beachhouse: 7.
- Wall-jump into the wall cave at the left end of the bay, 21.
- Now comes the tricky part: Onto the spring, up the cliff. Jump across to the
green area beneath with the 1-up mushroom behind a boxing glove on a spring.
Halfway, use your hoover nozzle to enter another cave. You can also reach this
cave with the rocket nozzle, standing on the green area with the 1-up mushroom.
You can also reach this cave by wall-jumping all the way to the top after
you've sprayed the grey tile near the bottom of the cliff.
Coins in cave: 19.

Other area's like the wall puzzle, the post-squid-cave and water-spray-caves
still contain some coins but hey, when it's done, it's done!

APPROX TOTAL COINS - 107+

2.08. PIANTA VILLAGE
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Here I cover the first episode - Episode 1, Chain Chomplets Unchained. This is
VERY hard to get the coins on, and you have to cover all the points in this
list... good luck.

- When you begin, waltz over the wooden bridge and make your way over to the 
base of the big tree on the left (where there is a large patch of grass).
Go west from here to see two crates (two coins), then over the path west for
three crates (two coins), west again for another two crates (two coins) and 
lastly, west again, another two crates, another two coins. (8) 

- In the center of the level is a HUGE tree (you cannot miss it - lol). At the
base of this tree there are loads of crates by the pond. Smash all eleven. (11)

- On the far right hand side of the level is a LARGE AMOUNT of crates, ready
to be butt stomped. (20)

- Around the level are tall mushrooms that are on fire. Put these out with the
FLUDD pack, then butt stomp it in the center to release a bunch of coins to 
collect. They all have eight coins to be collected after being butt stomped...

South of the sauna, on a higher ledge.

Left of the level, jump from the big tree in the bottom left of the level.

From the big southern tree base, head towards the two mushrooms in the north
east. Get up the blue box ahead of here, and look in the direction of the big
tree on the left - you should see the mushroom. Now climb the tree and hover
onto it.

Go right from the center pond, over the path to a slope. Travel up it, and get
onto the small mushroom. Then do a side jump / back flip then hover to the 
burning mushroom ahead.

Go east from the sauna, and it's there on a higher ledge.

From the center pond, to the north of it there is a smaller mushroom and then
a bigger mushroom next to it, of which is alight.

I would *for sure* do all the burning mushroom coins. (48)

- At the sauna (at the base of the big tree in the top left), is a giant Pianta
head and arms made of stone. Butt slam it's nose to get nine lovely coins and
a blue coin. (9)

- Butt slam the DIRECT middle of the sauna bowl to get thirteen coins! (13)

+-----------------------------------------------------------------------------+
| SHINE LOCATION - Over the sauna bowl, of which is near the tree in the far  |
| corner from where you begin.                                                |
