This article contains a spoiler for the Playstation game, Tomba! If you do not want the game spoiled for you, do not continue reading any further. I've done my best to split it up into sections to minimize spoiling, but don't say I didn't warn you. (Here's a tip: make your viewing window smaller.) NOTE: This is not a complete walkthrough for Tomba! In fact, it's not even a complete FAQ! I only rented the game, so I don't actually have the game with me right now. I'm writing this from memory, so don't expect to find everything you need or even perfectly accurate details, although it should be pretty close. A bunch of stuff is missing, but hey, there should be enough information to help you with what you need. Any corrections or missing information can be sent to me, Miguel B.
This FAQ deals mainly with Events, Items, and the Evil Pigs, and any other questions I've seen about the game. The contents have been divided into four sections, (I) Events, (II) Items, (III) Evil Pigs, (IV) Misc. Stuff to Know About this FAQ: - I'm assuming you know where all of the locations are, I'm not providing a map. - Whenever I refer to the Haunted Mansion, I'll use "left side", "right side", "front side", etc. because I don't remember the compass directions. "Front" refers to the side you're on when entering from Baccus Village. - Whenever I refer to "after" a particular Event, I mean after the Event has been completed, not after it has been discovered. ------------------------- I. EVENTS ------------------------- Well, first of all, I'm not exactly sure of how many Events there are in total, but I think it's 130. In my Events list, there are no empty spaces except for the last six slots on 8/17, and it seems as if no one's found any of those Events either. Well, since the first 8 pages deal with Events that are part of the main storyline, and the last 9 aren't, it might make sense to keep them separated. But I could be wrong, so if anyone finds any of those 6 Events, please tell me so I can change this info. But for now, I'll work with the 130 Events I have. The following chart outlines each Event (in the order they're listed in the game), a description of it, where to discover the Event, how to complete the Event, and what Item you get (if anything). (Don't ask me how much AP each is worth, because I have NO idea!!!) *Each page of Events is separated by a bar, and you can also use "Find" to search for a specific Event (e.g. the 5th Event on the 2nd page would be 2/5) ====================================================================== (1/1) GRANDPA'S BRACELET - retrieve the stolen bracelet Discover: n/a Complete: finish the game!!!

EVIL PIGS ------------------------------ This section of the FAQ contains information concerning the Evil Pigs and the Evil Pig Bags. This includes the color and name of each Bag, where to get it, and where to use it. I was going to include what each Evil Pig was like, but I've forgotten which was which for almost all of them (don't worry, they're all pretty easy). THE BLUE PIG BAG - get it from the Dwarf Elder use it in the Million-Year Old Man's room "...the other blue is somewhere here [Underground Maze]..." THE RED (STORMY) PIG BAG - get it from the Large Keyhole door on Phoenix Mt. use it in Charity Square (jump left from the roof over the fountain) "...Red is awaiting a miracle..." THE PINK (MOUSE) PIG BAG - *I think it's the blue chest in Town Hall* use it in the Lava Caves, the topleft-most ledge near the beginning "...Pink is somewhere really hot..." THE ORANGE (HAUNTED) PIG BAG - *one of the chests in Haunted Mansion* use it in the Masakari Jungle, jump left from the top of the tall tree "...Orange is in the jungle..." THE GREEN (FIRE) PIG BAG - the blue chest at the beginning of Lava Caves use it in the Haunted Mansion (the Smiling Door) "...Green is the mansion on the lake..." THE NAVY (JUNGLE) PIG BAG - the red (or yellow) chest at Old Tree Hill use it at the Familiar Mansion beach "...blue is the beachside door..." THE YELLOW (UNDERWATER) PIG BAG - a chest in the waters of Trick Village use it at Clock Tower "...yellow is the guard of time..." ----------------------------------- IV. MISC. QUESTIONS ----------------------------------- Q. How do you get the Gold Medal at Motocross Course? A. It's all in the timing of your jumps. Simply put, all you have to do is avoid hitting any Pigs and avoid any unnecessary obstacles (i.e. water and hills). For one thing, you should follow the regular route of the course (not the background), because it's easier to win with. When you get to the up-and-down part, make sure to jump onto the middle bump and then jump again onto the large one, then jump at the top so that you bounce over the Pig sitting downhill. Also remember to jump right before you get to the water, and stay on the wooden platforms, making sure you jump completely over the Pig on the last platform. After that, just jump over the remaining pigs (easy!) and you're done. Q. Where do you find the Cheeses? A. Wow, there are so many places I can't even remember all of them. I've found 15 Cheeses, and there's usually never more than 1 or 2 in a place. Here are some I can remember: - 2 in Haunted Mansion (Crying Door) - 2 in the Ol' Pond AP Box - 1 where the Famous Digger is digging on Phoenix Mt. - 2 from the hungry man in Hidden Village - at least 1 in a chest in the Underground Maze So pretty much, just check every little thing, and you're bound to find some. Q. How many "Vitality +1" Vests are there? A. I'm guessing there are 12 of them; I've only found 11 though, bringing me to 15 Vitality with an extra space left over. Same as with Cheese, there's too many for me to remember, but here are some: - Village of All Beginnings (go left from above the rope ladder and swing/jump your way to the Vest) - Haunted Mansion (when you talk to the guy in the room with the elevator to Underground Maze) - Masakari Jungle (one of the chests right from the top of the tall tree) - Motocross Course (the Mermaid gives you one when you first break a record) - Blue Fortune Teller (he's just generous) I seriously can't remember where the others are, sorry! If there are 12, someone's sure to have found all of them, so if you have, tell me because I'd like to know! Q. How do you defeat the Evil Pigs? A. Well, if you haven't figured it out already, you have to throw them into the moving Pig Bag that's on the screen. Just try to lure them close to the bag, jump on them, and wait for the bag to face your direction (don't wait too long, the Pigs eventually wake up). Another thing you might want to try: equip the Jewel of Fire. That way, if you're about to get hit, use it because you become practically invincible. Q. Where's the Hidden Village? A. There are two ways to get there: either through Charity Square or through the Lava Caves. Charity Square is a one-time, one-way trip, once you've completed "Leaf Butterflies" (bring enough Butterflies to the cage). You can also enter through Lava Caves; try to go through and follow as close to the ceiling as possible. You'll have to use the grapple to reach an off-screen pumpkin and climb up. Q. Where's Yan of the Hidden Village? A. The first time you find him is in the Village of All Beginnings, in the hut that leads to the Ol' Pond. If you look closely, you can see a pair of eyes through the window. Talk to him, and you'll start a game of Hide & Seek. The next time you'll see him as above the rope ladder at the far right end of the Village. After that, you'll find him at the Butterfly cage in Charity Square, then in the Smiling Door on Phoenix Mt., then behind the straw wall in Haunted Mansion, and lastly left of the tall tree in Masakari Jungle. You'll only see him again at the Hidden Village. Q. What's up with Black & White Tomba? A. Uh, I have no idea. I've been wondering that too, it only seems to make you always go as fast as with Animal Dash on. Nothing special. Q. Is there another ending if you beat the game with all of the events completed? A. Again, I have no idea. Personally, I'm hoping there is, because that would be great! But unfortunately, I wasn't able to get one event, so I only had 129 (assuming that there are only 130 of them). ================================================================================== ============ NOTES FROM THE AUTHOR ================================================================================== ============ Any other questions? Well, I hope this FAQ has helped you, and hasn't spoiled too much for you. Good thing I didn't remember everything, huh? Well, that's all for now, anything else you want to add, just tell me. And another thing, if you use any part of this to create your own guide, at least take the time to rephrase it or give me credit; don't just copy it word-for-word and pass it off as your own work! And I'd like to give some credit to all the people in alt.games.video.sony-playstation, who cleared up some stuff for me. Thanks to all of you! TOMBA!
