Secret signs are a completely optional item to collect in finishing Traps n' Gemstones. But you can't get 100 percent completion without finding all 55.
In this guide, we'll tell you how to find them all. Sadly, there's no record of which ones you have and haven't got, so you'll have to track down each one and see if you have it.
You may need to refer to our main quest guide to unlock certain items and areas. And you'll need our relic and key guides, for any symbols that can only be accessed when you put a relic on the right plinth.Secret Symbol 26 - In this dark room, there is a secret symbol on the ledge in the bottom right hand corner. The only way to get it is to drop down from above, and hug against the right wall so you drop into it. Secret Symbol 27 - Return relic 2-C to its resting place and you'll get a staircase to jump up and grab this symbol. Secret Symbol 28 - This secret symbol is hidden in a secret chamber, which is found in the room to the left of the gun room. Hug up against the left wall here and it will dissapear, as shown above, and leave behind a corridor to a secret chamber. A secret symbol, and lots of gold, is found inside. Secret Symbol 29 - To get to this secret symbol, you must first follow the instructions to get to relic 5-E. In that room, press the red button to make the crate and treasure chest fall down to the blue row of bricks. Now exit the room.
Follow the instructions here to plop down relic 1-A. Then you can go through an exit to the top right. Go right again and push against the wall to the right of the three money bags. The wall will disappear and you'll now be at the top of the room with relic 5-E, and can grab the secret symbol.Secret Symbol 30 - To get to this symbol, you must first put relics 5-A, 5-B, and 5-C in their resting place, in the golden statue hall. This opens a secret passage which leads to this room.
Inside, press the red button at the top when the pharoah is walking over the red blocks so he falls down. Then press it again. When he presses the blue button, drop down to the next level, where the blue crystals are.
Now, drop down and press the red button on the right to make the pharoah drop into the spikes. Press it again and go left to grab the secret symbol.Secret Symbol 31 - This symbol follows on from the previous symbol. When you drop down to the bottom of the room (there's a treasure chest here), go right. Use the purple potion to turn the pharoahs into mummies and kill them. In the next room, go right again (watch out for the purple mummies) and you'll appear in this room. Swim past the jellyfish to get the symbol. Secret Symbol 32 - Following on from the previous symbol, swim down, swim right, and then swim up. As you go left, jump out of the water to bypass the jellyfish. Then, use your rock hammer to break apart the boulders to make stairs, as seen in the screenshot above. Use these to reach the symbol. Secret Symbol 33 - After getting the previous symbol, go right and hit the switch to open the gate. Then swim around and walk through the gate to get to this room. Then, hit the lever and drop down the shaft. But - and this is important - hug the left hand wall with all your might. As you drop into the next room, you want to fall into an area on the left, containing this symbol (and a purple mummy). Secret Symbol 34 - After you get the previous symbol, you'll drop down into this minecart room. As you ride left, jump on the bats head (and press jump as you make impact to get a boost) to reach the symbol that's up high. If you miss it, kill yourself so you can start again. Secret Symbol 35 - Further on down the minecart track, you'll need to make another death-defying leap to get another secret symbol. Secret Symbol 36 - To get this symbol, simply put relic 1-E in its resting place. You can now hop up and get the symbol. Secret Symbol 37 - In this room (follow our main guide to find out how to get here), take the elevator platform up and then whip the crate to the left so it falls onto the platform below. Drop down and push the lever so the platform and crate move left and right. Then go back up and stand on the crate. When it goes left, jump up to get the symbol. Secret Symbol 38 - Return relic 1-D to its rightful home and you'll be able to grab this secret symbol. Secret Symbol 39 - Return relic 2-D to its correct plinth and you'll get instant access to this symbol. Secret Symbol 40 - Return relic 5-B to its correct plinth and you can drop down to this area, and grab this secret symbol. Secret Symbol 41 - In the room to the right of this one, jump to the left (from the ledge with the plinth) and you'll find a secret exit. Wander through and you'll end up on a platform high above the water slide. Drink the blue potion to make the platforms appear, and then walk up them to get to this secret symbol. Secret Symbol 42 - If you've followed the instructions for the last symbol, there will now be blue platforms leading up to the symbol in this room. (You need to have returned relic 2-A to its resting spot to access this area). Secret Symbol 43 - Still got the blue potion in your belly? (Which would mean you haven't died since getting the potion for the previous two symbols). Well, you can now access the symbol in this room. Secret Symbol 44 - This secret symbol is in secret chamber 4, which is in the hole between the spikes in this room. The catch is that the blocks will drop down from the top and cut off access. If that happens, just go right and get killed by a mummy.
Now, return to the room and the blocks will slowly start to descend again. Use this opportunity to roll off the ledge on the left and land in the spike gap. A secret tunnel will appear, leading you to this secret chamber. Then it's just a case of grabbing the symbol.
Secret Symbol 45 - This symbol is inside secret chamber 5. Once you're in here, use your rock hammer to make a staircase to get up to the symbol. Remember that you can destory blocks in mid-air - just hug up agains them and swing your pick axe mid jump.
Secret Symbol 46 - This symbol is inside secret chamber 6. When you arrive, smack the lower crate with your whip so it drops down onto the left ledge. Then, use the lever to make the trap door open. The ledge will fall down, smash, and reveal a purple potion. Drink it down and the pharoahs will turn into mummies. Kill them with your whip and go grab the symbol.
Secret Symbol 47 - This symbol is inside secret chamber 7. Use the elevator platform to reach it.
Secret Symbol 48 - This rare bit of platforming action can be found in secret chamber 8. Jump from pillar to pillar to reach the symbol. Don't worry, it's not as hard as it looks.
Secret Symbol 49 - This dark room is secret chamber 9. Use the pillars to get up high, then roll down to grab the secret symbol.
Secret Symbol 50 - This symbol can be found inside secret chamber 10. Jump in the lower cannon, then hit fire when you're aiming up through the vertical tunnel. You'll then be in the upper cannon, and should fire yourself down when you're aiming at the tunnel on the right. Now go get the symbol.
Secret Symbol 51 - This symbol is high above this tall room. You'll need the blue potion to make steps so you can reach the golden sign. Luckily for you, there's a potion in the room on the left. Go drink it, come back, and reach the symbol.
Secret Symbol 52 - This symbol can be found in secret chamber 11. Just jump up and grab it. Almost there!
Secret Symbol 53 - This symbol is hiding in secret chamber 12. It looks scary, but it's actually easy. Just stand on each platform and wait until it meets up with the next platform and then walk across. Repeat until you get to the symbol, and don't jump.
Secret Symbol 54 - This symbol can be found in secret chamber 13. It's easy to get to, as long as you judge the timing of the spiders carefully. If you have a gun in your pocket, it's even easier. You may need to use a roll jump to get up to the symbol.
Secret Symbol 55 - This last symbol (well, for me. You can get them in pretty much any order you like) can be found in secret chamber 15. Stand on the platform and it will take you to the symbol. Honest. You won't get squished on the spikes.
