8.00 Colored Gems
The blue gem is found in Level 10, Ruined. To get to it, from the start of the level, go right, and slide the spiked lizard out. Go up, and right. Ride the elevators, then jump through the stack. Ride more elevators to the first checkpoint. Slide the supped-up super lizard out, and ride, guess-what, even more elevator platforms. Duck under the stack of nitro’s. Go right, and get the mask. Ride more elevators, and get the ! box below. Jump up back onto the platform, or it will knock you off on the return trip. Hit the second checkpoint, and go right, and up. When you reach the stack of TNT and iron boxes, jump on the TNT, then back off. Body-slam the rest of the boxes, then slide the forked lizards. Jump up, then get the nitro!. If you aren’t going for the blue gem, then go right, and onto the bonus platform.
Stand on the nitro !. Stand all of the way to the right, then slide, double-jump, super-spin left. You will land on a platform of three iron boxes. Repeat this and you will land on two steel boxes. Repeat again, and you will land on two more boxes. You can now see an arrow box all of the way to the left. Slide-jump to it, and bounce up to get the blue gem. Now go right, and up the platforms. Go right more, and onto the bonus platform.
To get the green gem, follow the walkthrough at 7.3.3 Level 13 Sunken City. Basically, you need to go through the level until you reach a ! box. Once you hit it, you need to backtrack all of the way to the beginning of the level. Touch the TNT to open a path, then go in and grab the gem. Follow the rest of the level to the end.
To get the red gem, follow the walkthrough at 7.4.1 Level 16 Star To Finish until you reach the nitro !. Drop down at the very left of the pit where the nitro ! box is. You will fall onto an arrow. Bounce with it to the arrow next to it, then follow the fruit right. Double-jump right, and land on a steel box. Time your jumps on the spinning platforms so you can get across safely. Go right more, and grab the red gem. Now go back to the pit that you fell into in order to get here.
Follow the walkthrough at 7.4.5 Final Countdown until you reach a checkpoint next to a spinning platform. It is next to a double-stack of nitros, and the edge of a platform.
Stand at the very left edge of the platform, and you can see a platform spinning near the top of the screen. As soon as it turns red, jump over the checkpoint, and onto the spinner. Push left for the entire time you are in the air, and you will land on the platform when it is green. Quickly jump to the box to the right. From there, jump to an arrow. When you are on the arrow, hold jump to go as high as possible, and double-jump super-spin left. From that platform, slide-jump left, and you will get the yellow gem. Now go right, on the ground, until you reach the arrows. Stand next to the checkpoint, but don’t get it yet.
