How to get 100% completion in this level?
Reaching 100% completion on the Spooky Swamp level will require you to meet the following conditions:
- Collect 500 gems
- Find 6 Dragon Eggs
Due to the presence of several characters on this level, the description of the playthrough has been divided into two parts.
As soon as you start the level, head towards the firefly. It will inform you about the situation that is taking place on the map. After the conversation, head towards the ladder, which stands right next to the firefly. You will reach a room, where you must light the first lamp.
Head further towards the bridge where the Rhynoc is standing. Eliminate it to get to the other side. Avoid the water during the fight, there are piranhas in it. Take care of any enemies and collect all gems in the area. Then jump over the destroyed bridge to the clearing above.
This way you will reach the next house, where you have to light the second lamp. Continue going forwards. You will only encounter two large Rhynocs on the clearing. Collect the gems from nearby crates. You will also find a locked chest here. You will see a small island behind the second Rhynoc, where you can find an egg.
Next up, use the bridge and you will reach a small location. You cannot do anything with the doors there, but you can go through the pipe next to them. Make sure that you have a lot of spare health during the crossing. It is possible that you will sustain some damage from the piranhas. You will reach a glade where you will find another cottage with a lamp inside. You will also find the same passageway as the one you just went through. It will lead you to a portal that will take you to a location dedicated to Sheila. Next, to this portal you will also find a firefly that will give you another egg.
Afterwards, come back through the passage which you used previously and then use the bridge. You will reach the last cottage in which you have to light another lamp. As soon as you do this, the portal leading to Sleepyhead's hideout will open. However, before you go through the portal, be sure to clear out the glade around the house and use the structure to get to the treetops. You will find an egg there, as well as a key to a chest.
Fighting against Sleepyhead himself is not particularly difficult. He throws Gators and bombs at you. Use the bombs to carry out your attack, as soon as they stop in a specific location, use the charge on them in order to launch them back at Sleepyhead.
On this level, Sheila must help the twins - Basho and Buson to get to the eggs. To this end, you must clear their path. Before you begin this task, destroy all of the rocks that are located here. Thanks to this you will only have to deal with the mushrooms. You have to drive them back into the ground with the help of your spinning jump. However, you must do so at the moment when the creature is quite close since the mushrooms quickly return to their original form. By helping the twins you will receive two eggs.
