Book near Freezezy Peak puzzle:
This book is located behind the entrance to Bubblegloop Swamp,
near the jigsaw puzzle for Freezeezy Peak. When you first walk through
the pipe that leads to the puzzle board for Freezeasy peak and the
second pipe to the spell book, a block of ice will be covering the
second pipe. First, get the wading boots in the pipe near the
beginning of the Bubblegloop Swamp area. Go through the pipe as Banjo
and break the block of ice. Then, have Mumbo Jumbo transform you into
the alligator in Bubblegloop Swamp and enter the pipe that leads to
the spell book
Mad Monster Mansion book:
Transform into a pumpkin in the Mad Monster Mansion level with
Mumbo's help. Leave the skull and follow the winding path to
Brentilda's platform. Enter the small hole and follow the path to the
Rusty Bucket Bay book:
Find the entrance to Rusty Bucket Bay. Locate the cave with three
pipes to the right of this location. Open the middle pipe and enter.
Activate the "321" switch that is inside to raise the water level.
Jump into the water and quickly move to the right. The book is located
in the cave to the right
Alternate game selection screens:
The game will randomly play a humorous saved game animation. Rare
has confirmed that any code that involves pressing A when the fish in
the bowl does something is false.
No cost transformations:
Begin game play, using a new saved game file. Accumulate five
Mumbo Tokens and gain access to Treasure Trove Cove. Instead of giving
Mumbo tokens at this point, get the Sandcastle Jiggy and enable the
"Banjo is a washing machine" code. Enter Mumbo's hut while in washing
machine form to transform without using any Mumbo Tokens.
Breaking the Click Clock Wood boulder:
It is possible to break the boulder blocking the Beaver's hole in
Click Clock Wood on the Spring level. Stand on the ledge above the
rock, then find the correct angle just to the right of the rock. Drop
eggs onto the boulder to break it open. Swim into the hole on this
level to find some glitches, such as the Beaver still asking to move
the now destroyed rock.
Extra lives in Mr. Vile's games:
With Mumbo's help, turn into an alligator in the Bubblegloop
Swamp. Then, enter the nose of the giant alligator statue. Beat Mr.
Vile in his games to get the puzzle piece, then walk out and re-enter
for a new challenge. Beat Mr. Vile in his three games to collect extra
lives. Note: You will lose a life if any of the games are lost.
Refill extra lives:
Complete the Treasure Trove Cove area. You may now return
Treasure Trove Cove at any time. Go to Banjo's house, press C-Up at
the picture of Bottles, then press Start. Leave the house and all the
extra lives will re-appear. The closest ones are located behind the
water fall and on top of the house.
Hidden magic token:
In Clanker's Cavern, do a back flip on the very edge of where
Banjo enters the area to find a magic token.
Get Mumbo's transformations without using any Mumbo Tokens:
This trick will allow Mumbo's transformations to be activated
without using any Mumbo Tokens. Start a new file in the game. Play
through the game until five Mumbo Tokens have been collected and have
access to Treasure Trove Cove; but do not give Mumbo any tokens yet.
Get the Sandcastle jiggy piece. Return to Banjo's house in Spiral
Mountain and complete the Bottles puzzles to earn the washing machine
code. Enable the code in Treasure Trove Cove to become the washing
machine. Return to Mumbo's Mountain and enter Mumbo's hut. He will
say, "Banjo has plenty tokens, stand on skull and press B for mighty
Mumbo magic!" Stand on his platform and press B to become a termite.
The sign will disappear, the spell will become free, and Banjo will
still have the same number of tokens
Press Z immediately before hitting the ground from a fall.
Press Attack during any jump.
Hold B to scroll the text dialogue faster.
Press L + R + B skip the dialogue display
Banjo runs really fast:
Tap on A twice and then B twice then C-Up and start running. You
will notice that Banjo runs very fast.
In "Click Clock Woods", (spring) drop eggs (C-down) from above
the boulder in the water until it smashes. Then, swim inside and to
the surface. This bit is tricky. Jump away into the blackness, then
Kazooie-flapback in. If done correctly, you will be walking
