Lost Chao Locations
Locating the Ancient Ruins:
Work through the level past the second checkpoint until you come to an open area with G.U.N. Beetles dotted around. At the entrance to that area you will see a metal container and a spring off to the left hand side. The camera will automatically pull to the right as you enter this area so you will need to adjust it. Go over to this platform by hovering to the spring you can see on the pipe, and then inside the metal container is another spring. This will take you to even more springs, which will launch you into the top of the large yellow pipes in this area. You will see a row of rings in mid-air suggesting you follow them round the corner using the Jet Engine. When you land on the next yellow pipe, you should see the Ancient Ruins on a platorm just down below to your left.
Finding the Lost Chao:
Activate the ruins with the Mystic Melody and some platforms will appear. Follow them up and then turn around, and hover over to the plaform which has a pulley. This will take you into another room. Up here, round to the left is a bomb powerup to destroy some enemies in the room and also two extra lives. The other way is another Ancient Ruin which will spawn more platforms after you use the Mystic Melody on it. Traverse across these platforms onto the higher area which is guarded by G.U.N. robots. Destroy them and make your way to the Lost Chao who is further towards the back!
