Super Squidlit – Notes and Buttons Locations

A location guide for the buttons and notes found throughout the game!

Guide to Locations of Notes and Buttons


The guide is divided by each level. The areas listed by name are a notable landmark in the game. Anything simply listed “area” is a basic platforming section where you have to go from one door to another.

There are a few terms used in the game and a few skills you might need:

  • Air hover: This is the act of inking over and over again to try to keep your vertical position while going left or right.
  • Roll climb: Rolling against a wall over and over again, moving you vertically up higher with each roll.
  • “Closet”: In the FPS sections, this is the small available space possible.The walls are as close as you will ever see two opposite side walls, and the back of it is pretty shallow. Most of these hold false backs that will go up if entered.

Blipston (6 buttons, 2 note)

Town area

  • Button: First button in the game and it might be the most well hidden one. Find Bnurpy the Mushroom Squidlit in town. When you press down, one of his eyes will move towards the other eye. You can then press the jump button to control the other eye and dodge the collision. Make one eye jump over the other one three times in one go, and a button will appear out of Bnurpy

Area 2

Button: path above a snail. Must dodge a slug to get it. Just off screen after that.Slightly to the right.

Note (Ooblugs): First stone wall. Must jump left from the area the slug was on for the button. Air hover to get to it.

Area 4

Note (Sky Shield): After breaking the first barrier, you find a breakable (brown block). Go down, follow that path.

Button: Above the breakable brown block mentioned for the previous note.

Area 5

  • Button: When you have a path leading downwards (after passing 2 ladybugs), you should see a barrier on the left side. Smash that instead.

Pub/Dock area

Button: Located on the roof of the pub.

Button: Go all the way to the left of the area. Dock will end, you can jump in the water. Button is in the water, slightly right.

Ice Volcano Island (6 buttons and 3 notes in Plip’s section, 2 buttons in the FPS areas)

Lift area

Note (Squishu): After the lift operator, there is a hole in the ground. Go down and head left.

Button: Located a few platforms above the lift operator.

Area 1

  • Button: After 3 pinecones, there is a small tunnel with an enemy walking in it. Roll against the wall to climb up and over instead.

Area 2

  • Button: Near the end of the area there is a floating block just before a pinecone drop. Get on top of it, then ink hover to the right. Roll climb up the cliff (this will be above the exit door). The button is there on top.

Area 3

Button: In the section with all the breakable brown blocks, there is one hidden in a block on the far left side.

Note (Squishu’s Riing): In the same section as the button, there is one hidden in a block on the far right side.

Area 5

  • Button: After going down the hole, you will pass by a save space and see an opening upwards. Climb up the opening and you should see the button.

Hotbath area

  • Note (Mana): After the save space, climb up above the opening to the cave.

FPS Area 3

  • Button: Go to the left from the start. You will fight 3(?) flatworm ghosts while going down a corridor. The end of the corridor looks like a dead end, but if you go into the small space (should be on your right) a hidden door will open to reveal a button.

FPS area 4

  • Button: There’s an intersection where you can go all 4 directions. Go left from the the way you were facing at the start (you should fight a flatworm ghost and icicle enemy). Behind the enemies you should find a “closet space” with a fake wall leading to a button.

Hotbath area (melted)

  • Button: Ink a few times in the hotbath (the colour should change) and then speak to the ooblug in green next to it. He will give you a button for making the bath into saltwater.

Carbonifera the Storm island (7 buttons and 2 notes in Plip’s sections, 3 in FPS areas)

Area 1

  • Button: After a little tunnel with an enemy at the start, you’ll see some stairs up and to the right. Climb up them and bounce on the mushroom you see. Button is to the left.
  • Button: After fighting a spore spitting mushroom after getting the last button, bounce on the blue mushroom under it. Roll against the wall to the right to climb up.

Area 2

  • Button: You can see it if you jump right at the start. Keep walking until you find a “triangle” of platforms and stand on the top one. A dragonfly will come and you can right the dragonfly.
  • Note (Eneri): Around the ⅔ part of the level, there’s a door to the right of a little hole (you can’t miss it, you have to go over it to end the level). Do in the door and hop up the dragonflies to find the note at the top. If you fail, you can try again by exiting the door and going back in.

Area 3

  • Button: If you follow the top path, you’ll find a door on a platform. Enter it. As you go down this subsection, you’ll find the button on the right.
  • Button: After the door to the last button, go down the next hole. You will see the button in there.
  • Note (Chicken): Heads up, you’ll need to follow the lower path for this. Anyways, when you find the end of the level, back track on the higher path. After you pass a redcap enemy, a dragonfly should come from the right (if not, reset the level, this is the lower path issue I mentioned). Hop on it and ride it to the end, you’ll see the note on a platform above the level end door.

Area 4

  • Note (Loshia): Following the top path, you’ll see a door in a corridor. Go through and climb up. The last jump requires you to ram against the smaller stump, ink to get between the gap and roll to keep moving upwards (this is the hardest one to get so far).
  • Button: After exiting the door for the previous note, perform a roll climb up the left side of the tree that it was in.

Area 5

  • Button: While climbing inside the first tree, you’ll see a path going to the left. Ignore it, climb up the wall to the right by rolling against it. Button will be at the top to the left.

FPS area 2

  • Button: near the end of the level, on a left hand side wall from your starting position (on your right if you backtrack from the end), there is a little “closet” area with a secret wall.

FPS Area 3

  • Button: Follow the left wall from the start. You should find a “closet” space with a fake wall pretty quickly.

FPS Area 5

  • According to the developer, there should be a button in this section that is not showing up. Will be patched in.
