Written by Painik   /   Feb 4, 2021    

This guide provides hints on every secret in every level of episode 1. Guide contains maps with pinpointed spots as well as simple description what needs to be done. Some chapters also contain locations for special achievements.


The guide is divided in chapters based on levels of first episode. Each chapter contains list of secret locations with description/hint and a map, where the spots are pinpointed.

The list of secrets is in order you can usually first find them (but not necessarily order of solving them).

Before you continue reading, I would suggest trying to find the secrets on your own first, they are usually not too difficult.
