Traps n' Gemstones - Complete guide to all 25 keys

| Traps n' Gemstones

Keys are an incredibly important commodity in Traps n' Gemstones. Without them, those relics would stay lost forever.

That's because each relic is locked inside a treasure chest, and you need a key to liberate each and every one of them. So, with 25 treasure chests in the game, that's 25 keys to find.

This guide will show you exactly how to get them. If you don't yet have access to one of the areas we show, refer to our main guide to open more areas in the pyramid.

The key is in the pot to the right of the treasure chest. You have a small window of opportunity when the marching pharoah enemies are all clumped on the right side. When this happens, jump up, run left, and jump up. Now smash the pot to get the key.

To get to this area, swim down into the water and go left. You'll see an area where jellyfish are circling around a wall. Swim into the opening and then carefully swim around with the jellyfish to reach this chamber and get the key. You need the oxygen tank (refer to the main guide) or you'll drown.

Go to the left, and carefully whip the skeletons to death as you go. When you get to the left-most area (just before exiting the room), roll to the right and you'll bypass the spikes at the bottom and land safely on the floor. Smash the pots to find a key.

In the room with the cannon pots, one of the pots on the right will fire you directly into one of the secret signs. Underneath, you'll find a key lurking inside some of those oh-so smashy ceramic pots.
