Just found out that you can punch Sir Slush's snowballs out of the air and get a honeycomb, but only up to ten times. Blew my mind open.

Here's a walkthrough on how to obtain each of the 15 Jigsaw Pieces (Jiggies) in Mumbo's Mountain in the game Banjo-Kazooie:

Enter Mumbo's Mountain: From the starting area of the game, head to the entrance of Mumbo's Mountain. It's a large, stone skull with glowing eyes.

Jiggy 1: Inside the Mountain: Once inside, head straight and follow the path until you reach a large room with a central structure. Jump on the platforms to reach the top and collect the Jiggy.

Jiggy 2: Climb the Termite Hill: On the ground floor of the main area, you'll find a hill infested with termites. Use the Talon Trot move (hold Z, then press Right-C) to climb the hill and grab the Jiggy at the top.

Jiggy 3: Activate the Termite Totem: On the ground floor, near the Termite Hill, you'll find a stone Totem Pole. Stand on the switch near it to activate the totem, which will release a Jiggy.

Jiggy 4: Tiptup's Choir Challenge: In the same area as the Termite Hill, you'll find a large turtle named Tiptup. He will challenge you to a musical game. Memorize the sequence of notes and repeat them correctly to receive a Jiggy.

Jiggy 5: Feed the Hungry Chimpy: Nearby Tiptup, you'll find a chimpanzee named Chimpy. He is hungry and wants three oranges. Collect the oranges from the surrounding area and give them to him to receive a Jiggy.

Jiggy 6: Solve Conga's Puzzle: Head to the top of Mumbo's Mountain and find Conga the gorilla. He will ask you to solve his puzzle by hitting the colored blocks in the correct order. Solve it correctly to earn a Jiggy.

Jiggy 7: Activate the Termite Maze: In the main area of Mumbo's Mountain, find a switch that activates the Termite Maze. Use the Talon Trot move to navigate the maze and collect the Jiggy at the end.

Jiggy 8: Collect the Jinjos: Throughout Mumbo's Mountain, you'll find five differently colored Jinjos. Locate and collect all of them to receive a Jiggy.

Jiggy 9: Spell Out "BANJO-KAZOOIE": Near Conga's area, you'll find several note switches. Activate them in the correct order to spell out "BANJO-KAZOOIE" and reveal a Jiggy.

Jiggy 10: Climb the Mountain with the Talon Trot: Near the entrance of Mumbo's Mountain, there is a steep hill. Use the Talon Trot move to climb the hill and reach the top to find a Jiggy.

Jiggy 11: Activate the Eyrie's Nest: In the main area of Mumbo's Mountain, you'll find a giant eagle's nest. Activate the switch nearby to release the Jiggy from the nest.

Jiggy 12: Solve the Soggy Puzzle: Near the waterfall, you'll find a puzzle submerged in water. Jump on the correct pads to complete the puzzle and raise the water level, revealing a Jiggy.

Jiggy 13: Swim through the Hoop: In the water near the waterfall, swim through the hoop multiple times to make a Jiggy appear above the water.

Jiggy 14: Raise the Ancient Stones: On the lower levels of Mumbo's Mountain, you'll find three Ancient Stones. Activate them in the correct order to raise a platform with a Jiggy on it.

Jiggy 15: Find the Secret Cave: Near the entrance of Mumbo's Mountain, there is a hidden cave. Find and enter it to discover a Jiggy waiting inside.

By following these steps, you should be able to collect all 15 Jiggies in Mumbo's Mountain in Banjo-Kazooie. Good luck with your adventure!

If you talk to Mumbo 1000 times in a row he gives you a 16th Jiggy and will transform you into King Jiggywiggy. My friend's dad's friend at Nintendo told me so.

Hidden Jiggy in the Well: Explore the spooky Mad Monster Mansion level and dive into the hidden well near the church. Swim down to the bottom to discover a secret Jiggy waiting for you.

Bottles' Puzzle Pieces: As you progress through the game, Bottles the mole teaches you various moves. However, if you collect all the scattered puzzle pieces in each level and complete the picture in Bottles' house, you'll be rewarded with a special Jiggy.

Kazooie's Flying Ability: Once you've learned the Beak Bomb move, head to Click Clock Wood. In either the Summer or Autumn season, find a tree stump near the entrance and perform a Beak Bomb on it. You'll be launched into the air, granting you temporary flight with Kazooie. This lets you access hidden areas and collect goodies.

Sunken Ship Jiggy: Dive into the depths of Treasure Trove Cove and explore near the lighthouse entrance. You'll stumble upon a sunken ship where a secret Jiggy is waiting to be claimed.

Mumbo's Transformations: Seek out Mumbo Jumbo throughout your adventure and collect his special tokens. By offering these tokens to Mumbo, he'll perform incredible transformations on Banjo and Kazooie, granting them new abilities to discover hidden areas and gather more Jiggies.

Gruntilda's Lair Secret Room: In Gruntilda's Lair, there's a breakable wall hiding a secret room. Locate the room with the green Jinjo statue and climb the wall platforms to unveil the hidden chamber. Inside, you'll find valuable items and, if you're lucky, maybe even a Jiggy.

Talking to Mumbo 1000 Times: A unique secret in the game involves speaking to Mumbo Jumbo 1000 times in a row. Upon achieving this feat, Mumbo will reward you with a 16th Jiggy and transform you into the mighty King Jiggywiggy, granting you special powers and abilities for a limited time.

In the world of Banjo-Kazooie for the legendary Nintendo 64, a "shell-shocking" feature called Stop N Swop was planned but, alas, never saw the light of day. This egg-centric feature, shrouded in mystery, had players hunting for hidden eggs throughout the game, with the tantalizing promise of unlocking extra content.

To embark on this grand egg-spedition, players needed to collect different types of eggs scattered across the whimsical worlds of Spiral Mountain, Mumbo's Mountain, Clanker's Cavern, and more. These eggs came in a variety of hues, including sunny-side up, speckled, and even rainbow-colored, adding a vibrant twist to the adventure.

Each collected egg held the potential for egg-stravagant rewards. Rumors circulated that certain eggs could hatch into new characters, like a curious Chick-a-Boom sidekick or a rare Cock-a-Doodle Doo transformation for Banjo. Egg-norant players could only imagine the possibilities that awaited them.

Furthermore, these eggs were said to connect to another game developed by Rare, Banjo-Tooie, creating an egg-citing link between the two titles. Players could supposedly transfer the eggs they found in Banjo-Kazooie to Banjo-Tooie, hatching into new in-game items or abilities that would enhance the gameplay experience. This egg-change system added an extra layer of depth and anticipation for fans of the feathered duo.

Unfortunately, like a cracked eggshell, the Stop N Swop feature never made it into the final release of Banjo-Kazooie due to technical limitations. The developers deemed it too challenging to implement and ultimately scrambled to find an alternative solution. While players were left with an unresolved mystery, the game remained a beloved classic, reminding us that some secrets are best left uncracked.

Dear qwertykins76,

Thank you for your expression of concern. It's egg-stremely kind of you to reach out and ask if I'm okay. However, I must say, things have taken a rather peculiar turn since delving into the depths of the Banjo-Kazooie universe.

As an administartor (see what I did there?), I've been observing the threads closely, and let me tell you, the world of Spiral Mountain isn't all sunshine and eggs over-easy. Lately, we've been encountering some strange anomalies that have left us feeling a little shell-shocked.

It seems that the game's secrets have taken a life of their own, hatching into something far more mysterious and unsettling. Rumors have been swirling about the existence of hidden eggs that hold untold power, but their true nature remains enshrouded in darkness. The line between reality and the virtual has become as thin as a fragile eggshell.

qwertykins76, it's as if the omelette has hit the fan, and we're left scrambling for answers. I can assure you, this admin is doing everything in their power to ensure the safety and well-being of our users. But be warned, there are cracks in the foundation of our understanding, and what lies beneath is a yolky mess of uncertainty.

So, while I appreciate your concern, it seems that our journey through the whimsical world of Banjo-Kazooie has left its mark on more than just the characters. We must proceed with caution, my friend, as we navigate these uncharted lands, lest we find ourselves trapped in a nest of unanswered questions and eerie riddles.

Stay vigilant, qwertykins76, and never forget that even in the most delightful of games, the shadows can cast an egg-ceptionally unsettling light. If you stumble upon any peculiar findings or eerie occurrences, don't hesitate to crack open a new thread and share your discoveries.

Wishing you an egg-straordinary day,
Mr. Airplane

If using a microwave feels like a challenging feat, remember that even Banjo needed to learn new moves and abilities to overcome obstacles in his path. The key is to take things at your own pace, never hesitate to ask questions, and remember that the gaming community is here to lend a helping hand.

Introduction:
Welcome, brave adventurers, to Fungus Forest, a whimsical world teeming with fungi, secrets, and elusive jigsaw pieces. In this guide, we will navigate through the mushroom-laden landscape to help you uncover all ten of these coveted puzzle parts. Prepare yourselves for a fungi-tastic journey!

Jigsaw Piece #1 - Mushroom Village:
In the heart of Mushroom Village, climb atop the giant mushroom near Mumbo's Hut. Perform a mighty Beak Buster to reveal the first jigsaw piece, ready to be collected.

Jigsaw Piece #2 - Stump Log:
Find the hollowed-out stump near the entrance to the area. Inside, activate Kazooie's Rat-a-tat Rap ability to break open a hidden wall, unveiling the second jigsaw piece.

Jigsaw Piece #3 - Tree Topper:
Ascend the tallest tree in Fungus Forest, near the Banjo-Kazooie puzzle area. Use Banjo's high jump ability to reach the tree's canopy, where the third jigsaw piece awaits.

Jigsaw Piece #4 - Fungi Platforming:
On the mushroom platform near the entrance to Fungus Forest, locate a hidden alcove. Use Kazooie's Talon Trot ability to reach it, revealing a secret tunnel leading to the fourth jigsaw piece.

Jigsaw Piece #5 - The Mushroom Slide:
Near the Mumbo's Hut area, spot a slide made of mushrooms. Slide down it with caution, collecting musical notes along the way, and at the bottom, you'll discover the fifth jigsaw piece.

Jigsaw Piece #6 - Toxic Pool Plunge:
Head to the toxic pool area, where a series of platforms lead to a central structure. Leap across these platforms carefully, and within the structure, you'll find the sixth jigsaw piece.

Jigsaw Piece #7 - The Cavern's Secret:
Inside the Fungus Forest cavern, navigate the twisting passages until you reach a high ledge. Use Banjo's grip grab ability to traverse across challenging platforms, eventually reaching the seventh jigsaw piece.

Jigsaw Piece #8 - Buzzing with Secrets:
Explore the buzzing beehive area. Follow the path to a platform with a bee, and shoot eggs at the beehive to make it drop. Once on the ground, jump into the hive to uncover the eighth jigsaw piece.

Jigsaw Piece #9 - Mossy Maze Mastery:
Venture deep into the mossy maze area and locate a hidden entrance concealed by dense foliage. Traverse the labyrinthine paths, avoiding hazards, and at the end, claim the ninth jigsaw piece as your prize.

Jigsaw Piece #10 - The Giant Mushroom Climb:
Near the area exit, find a colossal mushroom with a spiral path wrapping around it. Use Kazooie's Flap Flip ability to ascend the mushroom, climbing higher and higher until you reach the pinnacle, where the final jigsaw piece awaits.

Congratulations, intrepid adventurers! With all ten jigsaw pieces in your possession, you've completed the Fungus Forest puzzle. Your determination and keen exploration skills have paid off. May you continue your journey in Banjo-Kazooie with renewed confidence and egg-citement!

Have you guys ever noticed that blanks and tabs (sticking in/out parts) of a Jiggy are subtly asymmetrical?


I only just noticed this, after taking a closer look at the Jiggy podiums used to open worlds. I can't tell if the top/bottom is skewed but the left/right ones definitely are and this is consistent across a lot of promotional material and in-game depictions of Jiggies.
