Now go into the next room ahead and destroy another stone that’s blocking a Chest, then open it for a second Small Key.

Make your way back to the area where you found the Map and continue down the corridor until you can branch of to the right, head down the stairs and open another Chest for the Stone Beak.

Go through the door below and follow the path then hop over the small gap, smash the Crystals and then open the Chest for a Small Key. Exit the room and head right and up and until you reach a some stones blocking your path, insert a Small Key into the one with the hole and push it up to get through.

Make your way over to the left and kill the enemies and watch the Small Key slowly fall down into the hole, head south and continue down until you reach the back wall of the next room, continue following the path along until you reach a Chest, open it and attack the enemy.

Head up one more room and then right, open another Chest to collect the Small Key, now make your way back to the room where you saw the key fall and open the door ahead.

After the Boss has been slain head through the door above, grab the lever on the top right and pull it as far to the bottom as possible, quickly let go and dart into the room on the left before the stones block the way again.

Note: With the Flippers now equipped you’ll be able to swim around in deep water, allowing you to gain access to some areas you couldn’t before.

Head up from the Cue Ball room and pull the lever all the way back,then dart into the room to the left before it closes again,now collect the Flippers from the Chest.

Take out the enemies in the room and open the Chest to collect some Flippers, now head down to take out some more enemies then step onto the platform with the white orb above, light up all the platforms and go down the corridor and into the room on the left.

  • Top Left
  • Top Right
  • Center
  • Bottom Left

if done correctly a hidden staircase will be revealed, head down and dash past the enemies before they land on you, once you reach the end you’ll want to hop ontop of the stone to allow you to reach the platform above and climb up the ladder to the surface.

Head to the top right of the map and go down the stairs and dash past the enemies,then use the one at the end of the room to climb towards the ladder,and collect the Nightmare Key from the Chest,hop down and follow the path back into the open room and swim over to the Chest for 50 Rupees.

Grab the Nightmare Key from the Chest and hop off the side at the end, make your way towards the room where the key fell into the hole and grab 50 Rupees from the Chest on the way, once your back in the room continue right and head down the stairs and swim across to collect a Small Key from the bottom of the water.

Head back into the room where you grabbed those Rupees and continue around the corner to find a button next to a door, step on it and head through, remove the stone by inserting a Small Key and go down the stairs.
