Yada yada yada LEGAL blah blah blah STUFF ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 1. Version History ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ May 31st 2006-I fixed some very minor errors but since I was procrastinating so I didn't need to do homework, I guess it was a job well done XD. I'm still getting e-mail (not a lot) and they are very nice. I would love some more so if you just want to say "hi" or something, don't be scared to e-mail me. February 28th 2006-I got some more e-mails wondering about using my guide. I forgot most of the sites so if I e-mailed back saying yes, e-mail me again to remind me to put the name on the list. Sorry about forgetting. I also got a tip from someone. Added Secrets section to guide. February 13th 2006-I got some e-mails wondering if they can use my guide on some other website. I added them at the bottom. I also added a special thanks section but sadly I only have 1 person. *sigh* I also still want to add the Secrets section to this guide but I am a very busy human and time is just not on my side. Version 1.2 February 4th 2006-I finished all the levels. I'm thinking of adding a Secrets section of the guide also. So this is probably version number 1.01? February 4th 2006-This is the very new and first version. A plethora of spelling, grammer, information, and other errors. I only finished up to level 7. If I'm gonna give it a number it might as well be version number 0.0 or maybe 0.00005 ^_^ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 2. Introduction ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This is just a little guide that I decided to do on my free time to help the needy. It is also my first guide. Wasnít that nice of me? ^_^ Thatís about it! Oh yea. Long Live Ape Escape!!! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 3. Q and A ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Q. What is this guide about? A. Well...when you get the final transformation, it lets you find hidden rooms. These rooms will let you capture monkeys that you didn't get the chance when you played the level the 2nd time around. Q. I saw the entire level already and I didn't find any new door. A. OMG not a question! Well...using this new transformation, doors that are invisible will be able to be found. Like a dog, you will be able to sniff out banana smells which will lead to invisible doors. Hence the name "hidden" in "hidden room guide" XD Q. Okay, so I get how to find the doors. Now how do I get this transformation? A. Once you beat the game the first time (as in capture Specter) just go into another level and Aki will give you the transformation. Easy huh? A. No. I believe that the only attack that the new transformation can do is the pound attack (which, I believe was stolen from Super Mario 64 XD) Q. Does the new transformation have any attacks? Whoa, you must be psychic! Q. I found a error (like saying "a error" instead of "an error") on your guide. How can I tell you about it? A. You can e-mail me at ohmygodimonfirewoot [at] yahoo [dot] com or you can IM me on AIM. My screen name is StrawberryInjury. (Sweet e-mail right?) Q. I found a banana scent coming out of a wall. How do I open the door? A. Just go up to the wall and press down on the right analog stick or R3. You should knock on the wall and the door should open. If not then get closer to the wall and try it again. Q. What can I find in this hidden room? A. Usually more than 3 monkeys. Be prepared for a chaotic capture-fest. I usually transform first to make the capture easier. You can also find some stuff to hit. Hitting these things will make coins appear. In my opinion, the hidden room in the Arctic Wonderland gives the most coins when you get them in combo. MegaKirby informed me that the hidden room in Tomoki city holds a lot of coins also. Q. I see this picture of a banana at the side of my character when I transform into Super Monkey. What does it mean? A. It just means that your character is facing a hidden door. I used to think that the faster it blinked, the closer I was to the door but I was wrong. When you see the picture again, just try to make your character move to where he or she is facing. Q. I followed your instructions but I still can't find it. A. OMG not a question again! Well you can try to use the "banana radar". You can use it just as long as you are in the same area as the room. If you aren't then the banana radar won't work. If you still can't find the room, e-mail me and I will try to add more information. Q. Hey wait a minute! Why are you missing some levels? 4, 9, and some others are missing! A. They are just the boss stages. I counted them as levels but I skipped them because there are no hidden monkeys there. Q. Well??? When are you going to start the guide? A. Never. This is the last part of the guide. Nothing after this. Don't even bother to scroll down. You will find nothing! Muahahah ^_^! Not even the Table of Contents can help you now! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 4. Guide ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ \ Example / /~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~\ \ / /Level [insert number here] \ \Name of level [found on top of the screen] (The words on the screen) / /(empty space) \ \Description / /~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~\ Level 1 Seaside Resort (Scoop! My 36th wedding) This one is too easy. Just start out as normal and keep going until you pass the specter TV Van. As you go up the incline, there should be some space to the right. Go there and you should spot the banana scent. Level 2 Hide-n-seek Forest (Monkeypiece Theater Monkey Forest) This is also an easy one (what do you expect? This is just the second level!) Just go forward past the Specter TV van and jump up on the platform. You should be near a camera. Turn transform into Super Monkey if you haven't already and you should find the scent at the back of the area. Level 3 Saru-mon's Castle (Saru-mon's Immobile Castle) In this level, just keep on going until you get to the underground room with the sword and the treasure chests. When you get there, go up the stairs into the courtyard (I think that is what it is called) and turn to the right. Transform into Super Monkey and you should see the scent on the brick wall. Level 5 The Big City (Banana Heat) As you start out in the middle of the road, run forward until you reach the sidewalk. There should be 2 open double-doors in front of you that have posters saying "Mosaru times". The theater is next to a mural. (Really, you can't miss it! ^_^) Go inside and go up the stage. On the platform the hidden room should be on the left side of the stage before the black and white part. Level 6 Specter TV Studio (Specter TV: The other side. A no-holds-barred expose <3) Start the level as you would normally until you get to the robot monkey gundam-type mech. Use it to bash through the walls until you get to the end. The room after that is the skyscrapers. Go to the uppermost building. (uppermost means jumping up and going to the ceiling. Not the building that is closer to the lights) if you are on the building with the boxes, thats the wrong one. Try transforming into Super Monkey and use the Banana radar. Level 7 Bootown (Monday the 16th: Nightmare on Ape Street) Keep going until you reach the lake with the camera and the tombstones. Once you get the big tombstone to open (move all the smaller tombstones back to the switch) go inside. Kill all the robots that pop out and climb up the pole. Run past the statues and the flamethrower then turn into Super Monkey. The hidden door is under the big painting. Level 8 Wild West Town (A fistful of Bananas) Continue along the level until you reach the canyon. You get there by entering the train's engine room. Once you get there, fall down in-between the planks of the bridge and follow the path. As soon as you can make a left, do so and turn into Super Monkey. The door should be in front of you. Level 10 The Hot Springs (Monkey in a Hot Spring: Is a "cover-up" necessary?) After you get past the dressing room, flood the ditch and swim across. Go down the hole and enter the room. At this point, take the boat and cross the lava. Open the door with the RC car and kill the enemies if you want. Walk around the lava pool on the little piece of land. At the far end, turn into Super Monkey and you should find the banana scent. Level 11 Winterville (Monkey Come Monkey Go) This one is too easy. You don't even need to kill any enemies. Just run down and climb the pole to get to the top of the nearest house. Run to the other end of the roof and jump to the ledge. The should be a snowman at the left. Turn into Super Monkey and there you go. Level 12 The Emperor's Castle (Stealthy Simian Ninja) The door here is located on the roof of the emperor's mansion. (I guess you can call it that) One you climb the pole and get on the roof, make a right and another right. Go up one level and in-between the 2 spears should be the door. Tap on it and go inside. Level 14 Mount Amazing (Monkey Expedition sets off! Evening Ape drama) In this level, continue with it until you reach the magic elevator. The elevator should take you to the floating area. Once there, run down the path and use the sky flyer to climb one level up. Make a right and go past the boxes. Jump over the gap and right after you jump, there should be some room on your left. Put on the monkey suit an open the door. Level 15 Toytown (Lets go! Out With the Monkeys) Run forward until you get an option of going west, north, east, or into the house. Go west (assuming that you started out facing north) and you should be the place with the RC car maze. As soon as you enter the room, make a left and there should be a path made out of blocks. Try to get to the other corner of the room. Try not to fall! Once you get there, put on the monkey suit and go wild. Level 16 Arctic Wonderland (Monkey Panic: The Frozen Promise) This one is easy if you made it all the way to the end of the level and got the short cut back to the beginning. If you didn't, then make your way to the very end. The very end is where the Christmas tree is located. Put on the suit and the door is located right under the tree. Level 17 Mirage Town (The Desert Palace. Apey Jones) Go through the level as you would normally. Just ignore the hidden pyramid and continue on to the town. Go up the stairs and jump across the 2 platforms. Instead of continuing, make a left into a little room. The door is somewhere in that room. Level 19 Eversummer Island (National Ape. Series 36: Monkey Paradise) This one is also easy if you have the shortcuts. See the tower in the middle of the starting area? That is where you need to go. If you have the shortcut, just climb the stairs and go in. If you are in the right area, 2 flame throwing robots should be ahead of you. Continue and when you get on the platform with the switch on it, hit it. Before it makes a 180-degree turn, jump off of it. Land on the part where there is a giant statue of a monkey. The door is to the right in that area. If you want, press the button to get lots of coins. Just make sure you get them in a combo. Level 20 Airplane Squadron (Ape, Ape, and Away! The Top Banana in the Sky) This one is another easy one. Just go to the big Ape Escape-themed airplane. Go inside and the door should be to the right. Level 21 Kung-Fu Alley (Ukki Gang. Fists of Furry) Keep going through this first area until you reach the next. In this one, keep going forward until the path makes you take a sharp left. The door is here. Just to be safe, once you enter this area, morph as soon as you can or you might miss it. Level 23 Midnight Bay (A Misty Evening with The Ape-inator) This level, you need to go inside the boat. To do that, you need to go to the back of the boat and enter from there. Swim around. It is easier that way. Level 24 Tomoki City (Future City Tomoki) Continue with the level until you reach the area with the conveyer belts. On the first conveyer belt, use the sky flyer to climb on top of that. There should be fire coming from inside the entrance. Turn into the knight and enter. Once you get through, turn into the monkey and look for the scent. Level 26 Space-TV Fortress (Gotta' Love Specter!) Continue with the level until you get to the second part. It is right after you take the elevator. Go through the door that is right ahead of you. After opening the door using the RC car to turn on the switch, make a right. The door is in the empty room with the tables. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 5. Secrets ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I don't really know if this is really a "secret" kind of secret. Its more tips on beating the game I guess. *thanks to...umm...well all I got was 10010101* If you go to the cowboy stage (Level 8 Wild West Town (A fist full of Bananas)) after you go through the train and into the canyon, there is a hole where robot cowboys pop out. Its not for a combo but there are an infinite amout of cowboys comming out instead of exiting and entering the level again. Hitting the back of the robots will usually get it killed faster. It will also make the robot drop more coins and drop things like cookies umm...less rare than if you just beat it to death. Most robots will die after one hit if the spinning thing is destroyed. Go to a level where you know there is a jacket such as Hide-n-seek Forest (Monkeypiece Theater Monkey Forest) Arctic Wonderland (Monkey Panic: The Frozen Promise) or Mount Amazing (Monkey Expedition sets off! Evening Ape drama) and get the jacket. I think the easiest to get is Hide-n-seek Forest and Arctic. Once you get the jacket, exit the level and go back. The jacket should be at the same place as where you got it. The jacket in Arctic is at the very end where the hidden room is. The jacket is inside one of the presents. In Hide-n-seek, go inside the log cabin and make a left. There should be a bucket at the corner of the room. The jacket is there. *I know I got it from somewhere but I don't remember who. Please e-mail me and I will post it* More to come I guess ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 6.
