How to find the secret areas in Dan the Man

Wham! Bam! Slam! Just when you think you’ve dived into every hole, entered every house, and ransacked every pub in Dan the Man, it turns out there’s more to the game than meets the eye. In fact, did you know there are secret areas and items for you to find in every level? You didn’t?! Well, you’ve come to the right place then. *fist bump*Let’s see how many secret areas we can find in the opening chapter of Dan the Man!

  • Stage 8-1-1

About five minutes into the first stage, you should find yourself at the location pictured below. Nothing to see here, right? WRONG! If you turn left when the arrow tells you to turn right, you should find yourself in a secret area filled with coins. CHA-CHING!

  • Stage 8-1-2

It wouldn’t be a retro game without a few hidden platforms! In Stage 8-1-2, curious gamers will find an invisible platform about halfway through the stage. Hop onto the little fluffy clouds to access your next secret area before they dissipate. Is that a blade I see?!

  • Stage 8-1-3

Have you ever been bungee jumping before? If not, this is your chance! In Stage 8-1-3, there is a pretty looking waterfall that promises secret treasures! Dive down to land on a little fluffy cloud. Pro-tip: JUMPPPP!

  • Stage 8-1-4

ANOTHER waterfall? Geez, these goons aren’t very creative, are they? Cleverly located beneath yet another waterfall, you will need to take a leap of faith in order to reach a skilfully hidden landing that leads to a secret cave. Good luck!

  • Stage 8-1-5

Roast chicken? Sign me up! In Stage 8-1-5, fill up your HP by grabbing a quick snack before taking on the baddies lurking off screen.  Pro-tip: run fast, jump high, and be sure to look behind you. HEEYAH!

Thanks for reading and good luck out there. We’ll be back with more tips and tricks over the coming weeks!
