Nothing special about any of these expanded sections, just busywork... found all the remaining pagies and ghosts easily... wow, these were all easy to find and took no time at all...
At least, that's what I thought... After going through all of the obvious expanded sections and then exchanging my tokens for pagies, I found there's still 6 pagies worth of tokes left in this level that I haven't found yet, somehow... and there's still that health extender I haven't found yet...
oh, there is that one area I still couldn't figure out how to get into. I need to find a bomb plant somewhere to destroy the blocks in the way, but I haven't seen one...
this is crazy. I'm already resorting to a guide for the last 6 pagies... found out you need to use the helicopter to break those blocks, and also use it to break all of the "out of order" slot machines to steal the tokens inside them... and also the health extender is hidden way up above the central fountain, below the chandelier.
breaking into the bank using invisibility, and deflecting the lasers to open doors, this part is pretty cool...
while flying around destroying all the slot machines, I managed to find the last 6 tokens I needed.
wait, what... oh no! that was only 5 tokens. I'm still missing exactly 1 token. nooooooo!
luckily, the only 1 that I missed was this standalone token underneath the ramp near the house of cards. so sneaky...
Now to do the expanded version of the last world. The unexpanded version of this was very empty and only had 3 pagies and 60-something quills to find. Now there's a ton of other things here and it's basically like a whole extra level.
First of all, that indoor area, Lunar Lockup... I was so puzzled at the electric gate here and had no idea how to get passed it.. now, in the expanded version, this battery appeared. (er, I'm not sure, maybe that battery was actually there all along and I'm just dumb and never saw it)
Most of this world's pagies are easy to find/get.. just go onto each of the islands/planetoids/space stations and do some basic platforming... it's really just testing your skill with using all of your abilities.
This pirate ship is really dark inside... the captain of this ship is some corplet NPC who is afraid of shadows and doesn't want you to turn on the lights.. then you light a torch and scare him with a giant shadow to get a pagie from him.
On the same island as Rextro, Shovel Knight is inside a cave where he's trying to get to the treasure beyond a locked door... the keys to get passed this door are in possession of the Knights of Hamalot, and Shovel Knight gives you hints on how to take the key from each of these greedy pig knights that want you to split the treasure with them when you find it. It's more tedious than anything, since you have to keep going back to shovel knight each time to figure out how to get the next key.
The boss of this level is also fought when you're in boat form. it's a small moon with an angry face, and tiny craters on its body that have all the same attacks as your boat ability. This was a really fun boss battle.
Used a guide to find out the red ghost is hiding in a high up part of the golf course area that you need to fly to... and I bet the quills I'm missing are some place I've been to already in the non-expanded version, and the expanded version just put some there where there wasn't any before. wow I never noticed how huge that area was until I flew around in it.
The last 3 quills... that's all I need to 100% this game... I've been everywhere in this level, and despite how thorough I've been I still managed to miss a few somehow.
lol, looks like I'm not the only one who had this problem.
the last 3 quills that a lot of people miss are inside the washrooms, that you open up by ground pounding on them.
Also there's the 64 bit tonic I haven't unlocked yet, and 2 mystery achievements, but those are probably related to the pirate items I'm missing.
