    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

    ===============================================================================
    
    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
