===============================================================================
01: Introduction                                                        [intro]
===============================================================================

<<This guide was writen using the U.S. Xbox 360 version of the game. Any
  version differences will be accounted for upon discovery, but are not
  initially my responsibility.>>

Hello, and welcome to my humble holocron guide, there are just a few things
you should know before you read on. First, this guide deals with those colored
cubes you find all scattered about, and nothing more. I highly suggest that
you beat the game before attempting to collect all of these, as I like to
comment on some of the plot elements, for conversational purposes. That, and I
find it deducts from the story if you waste energy finding these on the first
playthrough.

Now, the basic premise here is to give you a detailed description of the
effects of each holocron, and where it is/how to get it. If you have trouble
finding some of the holocrons, then I suggest you either cross-reference with
another guide or switch to another guide altogether. There are no holocrons on
either boss level.

In any case, the basic layout of the holocron locations is as thus:

##) <general location>
    <detailed location. This often uses landmarks or previous holocron
     locations as reference points, so be prepared for that.>
    <reward>

===============================================================================
02: Rewards                                                             [rwrds]
===============================================================================

Who does anything these days without some kind of reward? No matter. There
are ample rewards for the collecting of holocrons. Perhaps the biggest reason
is the lovely achievement you get for getting them all. But if that doesn't
do it for you, then you'll be happy to know that there are many more rewards
to be offered. The rewards are as follows:

New Saber Crystals
New Costumes
More Health
More Force Energy
More Experience

===============================================================================
03: The Escape                                                          [escpe]
===============================================================================

01) First Catwalks
    Once you use grip to pull out the platform, the holocron should appear on
     the median platform. It's quite hard to miss.
    Saber Crystal: Chaos

02) Flame Hallway
    Continue till you enter a hallway with flams shooting from the floor.
     Dash past these, and you should see the holocron right in front of you.
     This is another difficult to miss holocron.
    Saber Crystal: Meditation

03) Second Catwalks
    This one is right after the last. Once you head outside, kill everything,
     and head around the circular catwalk. The holocron is on a platform
     extending from the middle of this half-circle catwalk.
    Green Bacta Tank (Health)

04) Force Field Room
    After you drop the fields by throwing items into the panels, continue to
     the next room. The holocron is sitting over the table, it is quite
     visible.
    Experience

05) Third Catwalks
    This is once again very hard to miss. Continue the level until you reach
     the area where you use grip to raise the platform. Continue from here to
     the gap, and you should see the holocron floating above said gap. use
     a jump-jump-dash to get it.
    Experience

06) Flee For Your Life Hallway
    This one is almost right after the previous. After you kill the shield
     droid, head through the door and turn left, should be right there. Don't
     go down the hallway, as a scene will ensue, and you won't be able to get
     back to this holocron
    Blue Bacta Tank (Force Energy)

===============================================================================
04: The Eastern Arch                                                    [earch]
===============================================================================

01) Landing Platform
    After you get the bridge to extend, rather than going inside the building,
     go left across the second bridge. The holocron is behind some crates.
    Saber Crystal: Protection

02) First Tram Area
    Continue until you reach the point where you must raise some platforms to
     go on. Once you do, the holocron is on the end of the catwalk you're
     supposed to go to in order to continue the level. There's actually a
     small cutscene showing it's location.
    Experience

03) Catwalks
    Continue onward until you force push your way through a door. Make your
     way through this building, and when you push your way outside again, the
     holocron is on your left next to the door.
    Saber Crystal: Fury

04) Second Hallway Set
    Continue till you reach another interior. The holocron is under the
     spherical decoration in the middle. Use force grip to move it.
    Saber Crystal: Healing

05) Flee For Your Life Bridge
    Continue till you go up an elevator and stop. Look out the door. See it
     all the way down there? Yeah, the bridge is going to blow up as you run
     accross it, so when that happens, you have to jump and pick it up as you
     go.
    Blue Bacta Tank (Force Energy)

06) First Casino Room
    In the first room after the bridge sequence, the holocron can be found
     happily languishing on the bridge in front of you. You should be able to
     see it as you walk in.
    Green Bacta Tank (Health)

07) Second Casino Room
    Right after you fall down the elevator shaft, look to your right. The
     holocron is sitting on the bridge, in quite the same fashion that 06 was.
    Experience

08) Jabba Hologram Room
    Continue until you reach a room with a hologram of jabba the hutt and three
     slot machines in front of it. Kill those slot machines, and the holocron
     will pop out. Theres actually a statue of Guybrush pointing at the
     hologram.
    Costume: Guybrush Threepkiller

===============================================================================
05: The Western Arch                                                    [warch]
===============================================================================

01) Starting Platform
    As soon as you start, walk around the structure to your right. In between
     the two little structures is the holocron. You start the level not 10
     feet away from this one.
    Experience

02) Force Field Catwalk
    Continue until you reach the catwalk with the force fields on it. Destroy
     the fields, and continue to where there is a stack of 3 crates. The
     holocron is in the air a little past this, you should have seen it from
     a little back on the catwalk. Put one of these crate things underneath it
     and jump-jump to get it.
    Saber Crystal: Chaos

03) Paratrooper Room
    After you kill the two shield droids, continue into the next room. Once
     inside, the holocron is a little to the left, in the center of the room.
     Another way to know this is the correct room is to notice that this is
     the room where the paratroopers will shoot at you from through the
     windows.
    Blue Bacta Tank (Force Energy)

04) Barricade Bridge
    Continue past the first two barricades. The holocron is in the middle of
     the bride right between the second and third barricades.
     (I remember this being somewhere else the first time? Is this a glitch?
      if its not there, check the sides of the barricades.)
    Green Bacta Tank (Health)

05) Bone Room
    Continue until you defeat the gunship, and reach a room with a large
     skeleton in it. Once here, take the elevator up far enough to jump onto
     the skeleton, but don't take it any farther, as a cutscene will ensue.
     Once on the skeleton, jump-jump-dash to the platform to the right and
     claim the holocron. You can also do a dashing blast (jump-jump-dash-b)
     right from the elevator to get to it.
    Experience

06) Bone Room
    From the position of the last holocron, if you're skilled, you can jump
     down and dash into the area of this one. It's to the left of the last one
     if you look at the skeleton, and quite a ways lower. If you're not
     skilled, then you should be able to jump on the skeleton and then down
     and into the area. This might actually be harder than the first method
     though.
    Saber Crystal: Corrosion

===============================================================================
06: Degobah                                                             [degba]
===============================================================================

01) Top of Ship
    Jump onto a rock and then onto the ship. Not hard. Its the easiest one I
     think.
    Experience

02) Forward Cliff
    From the top of the ship, walk down the front, and jump onto the cliff.
     The holocron is to your right once you are on the cliff.
    Saber Crystal: Life Drain

03) Next to Ship
    You know that rock you used to get on the ship? Lift it up and the
     holocron will be right under it. If you got onto the ship another way,
     the rock in question is right behind and to the right of the ship.

04) Path
    Under a rock along the path to the cave. Right past the hut.
    Green Bacta Tank (Health)

05) Path
    You might actually have to try and miss this one in order to not get it.
     It's right in the middle of the path as you continue.
    Saber Crystal: Focus

06) Path
    Just forward from the last one, also in the middle of the path.
    Experience.

===============================================================================
07: Aboard the Salvation                                                [atsal]
===============================================================================

01) Hallway After Terror Droids
    Once you kill all the little spidery things, continue through the door,
     and the holocron is right in the middle of the hallway.
    Saber Crystal: Regeneration

02) Tube Room
    Continue past the cutscene with Juno, and past the room and hallway with
     the teleport enemies. In next room, where there is a fuse sitting next
     to a door, do not put the fuse in that door. Rather, take it and go down
     the other hallway, and use it with that door. The holocron is inside the
     middle tube in this room.
    Green Bacta Tank (Health)

03) Giant Chasm
    When you get to the part where a short scene shows all the nice toasty
     holes that have been carved through the ship, stop. Just below your
     platform is a metal grating with the holocron on it. Drop down and get
     it, then jump back quickly, as the grating will fall.
    Blue Bacta Tank (Force Energy)

04) Engine Room Section 2
    Continue to the room after you stop the spinny killy thing with grip.
     Once there, the holocron is between two of the spinny electric thigies
     to the left. Wait for them to pause, then collect the holocron.
    Experience

05) Battle Room
    Continue to the room with the large droid and the flames that
     periodically shoot up from the floor. Now get onto one of the catwalks
     and make your way toward the side nearer the giant spinny thing. Then
     jump-jump-dash your way to the holocron, which is on top of a pipe next
     to the spinny thing.
    Experience

06) Melted Tunnel
    After you beat the giant spider thing, continue into the melted hole it
     made. Once you exit the tunnel, the holocron is in the corner of this
     room.
    Saber Crystal: Wisdom

===============================================================================
08: The Battle for the Salvation                                        [tbfts]
===============================================================================

01) First Battle Room
    In the very first room, keep fighting until some snipers appear up on the
     right-side catwalk. Once they do, head up there and the holocron will
     be in the pod they came in on. The pod is in the short hallway behind
     the snipers.
    Experience

02) Engine Room Section 2
    Continue past the spinny thing in the engine room, and past the spinny
     elecric thing in this next section. Now destroy the red engine cores to
     the right, and the holocron will be behind them. If you drop down the
     second shaft, you've gone too far.
    Green Bacta Tank (Health)

03) Battle Exit Hall
    Continue to the battle room and kill everything. Once finished, the
     holocron is in the middle of the hallway exiting this room.
    Saber Crystal: Meditation

04) Shield Droid Hall
    Continue until you see a short scene with a shield droid entering though
     a pod. Once you kill it, you can find the holocron in the pod it came
     from.
    Saber Crystal: Incineration

05) Sniper Hall
    Continue until you reach a hall with snipers at the end. Take a left at
     the start of this hall and you'll see the holocron lazing about inside
     the middle tank.
    Blue Bacta Tank (Force Energy)

06) Elevator Shaft
    When you reach a broken elevator, lift it, and drop down. The holocron
     is behind you in a short hallway
    Experience

07) Large Cannon Room
    Once you're in the large cannon room, you can find the holocron in the
     corner on the other side of the cannon, in the air. You'll have to drag
     some stuff under it so you have enough height to jump to it. It may help
     to stack two of them, jump to them from the top of the cannon, then to
     the holocron.
    Saber Crystal: Healing

===============================================================================
09: The Return                                                          [retrn]
===============================================================================

01) Starting Area
    This holocron is on top of one of the junk piles in the starting area.
     There should be platforms on the piles, use those to get to it.
    Green Bacta Tank (Health)

02) Starting Area
    This one is in front of the windows that lead into the hallways. Use one
     of the junk piles and a jump-jump-dash to get to it.
    Experience

03) Third Overlook Room
    This holocron is up on the catwalk. To get there, jump on the pedastal
     in the back corner next to said catwalk.
    Blue Bacta Tank (Force Energy)

04) Catwalks
    After you meet Kota, continue until you fight two of the missle shooting
     walker things. On top of the structure behind them is the holocron. Jump
     on some piece of debris to get the height to reach it.
    Saber Crystal: Disintegration

05) Elevator Room
    Continue till you go down an elevator. Once down, the holocron is to your
     left, floating above the floor.
    Saber Crystal: Shock

06) Cloning Room
    Continue forward through the levels till you reach a cloning radial that
     is not moving. There are two of these sets that do not move. You want
     the second one. It is at the very end of the level.
    Experience
