This FAQ is for the search of the Secret Rooms in ODDWORLD ADVENTURES. I will be gathering as much information as possible on where they are and how to get to them. Below there are three headings, FOUND, RUMOURED, THEORIES and ODDSPEAK. FOUND will be where all secret rooms information will be placed. RUMOURED is where all speculated secret rooms information is. And ODDSPEAK is where all the information that I have found on the net about the secret rooms will be. So on with this FAQ.
<<._ FOUND _.>>
There has been none found yet. Check the Rumoured for more information.
<<._ RUMOURED _.>>
There is one really ODD thing that I found in the game there is a level where you start next to a door. In total two doors on one screen. Now Sometimes when I comeback to this door it is open but I can't get into it. What is stopping me and how do I get past it. This door might not be a door to a secret room, but I will try it next time I play the game.
<<._ THEORIES _.>>
SECRET LEVEL ENTRY POSITIONS Ok well I havn't played Abe's Exoddus that much yet, so I don't know about it, but in Abe's Oddessy the way to get into secret hidden screens was to climb down behind things. They were nasty in doing that in the game and you missed alot of saves. So where are these enterances ?
Theory 1: They could be behind foreground objects. Theory 2: They could be doors on black backgrounds. Theory 3: You might have to drop into a hole. Theory 4: You might have to use the Super Chant for something else. Theory 5: There could be a time limit to finish it in. Theory 6: They could be just tricking us. Hey look at the stress they put us through in the game. Could the secret rooms be a way of laughing at out futile efforts, don't know. Theory 7: Could there be a door combination thing with the Temple doors. Could there be a set way that you have to do the doors to open a secret level. There are 6 doors (to memory) so that makes 36 different combo's to do doors in. I wonder if it is this door thing. Theory 8: I forget what level it is as I played it so long ago but there was one level that was near the end that was 'too' easy, if you get what I mean. Could there be something else in that level ? Theory 9: Ok look at the size of the gamepak. I don't have the statistics on the cart, but when you compare the game size to one such as Pokémon, you have to think about if there is 'un-used' space on the gamepak. If there is some un-used space then that means the dev team might have been rushed to put out the game. But if the space is used up then something is taking up that room, and this means that it might be the secret rooms. Or it could be some other disapointing thing... My reason for thinking of this is that the game has no save slots, so where did all the memory on the gamepak go?
Well all I know is that I'm not leaving one stone un-turned. They have now made me paranoid and I am going to find out where these secret levels are.

1) High (and long) jumps To do this jump and at any point in the jump pause and then unpause and jump again, you will start the jump from the point you paused. Once you get used to this it is very usefull skipping hard sections.
2) Victory sequences This is a simple one, at the end of a level where to complete it you walk off the screen. Jump off instead and it looks like Abe raises his arms above his head in victory.
3) Killing sligs in different ways You can kill sligs in two ways, when you have possesed them you normally hold start and the slig flicks from side to side the explodes. Well hold down up and select and it looks forward instead.
>> There is also the two other normal ways to kill Sligs. 1 - Make >> them jump off into a hole, and 2 - Get them to kill another >> Slig then kill themself by exploding.

I have rated all these with a star system of 1 to 5 on how interesting they are.
1) Abe talk When you press pause you can press all the buttons on the control pad (apart from start ) to hear soundbites of abe talking. This may link to a cheat, because on abes exoduss I heard there is a cheat where you press pause and hit several buttons.
Rating : ****
2) Musical Passwords More of a bug, at the menu at the begging of the game. Goto gamespeak and press left a couple of times to hear abe chant. Now when you change the letters on the password screen you hear abe chanting.
Rating : **
3) Quick Start At the menu at the beggining press start at the start option to skip the cut scene at the beggining.
>>You can skip all cut scene's this way.
Rating : *
