Dear Player,

This is our FOX n FORESTS walkthrough, helping you to uncover every last se(ed)cret.

To be able to collect everything you need to master the following move: You can walk off any platform and THEN do a double jump in MID-AIR in order to jump even further!

And make sure to get the Double Jump Spin Attack in the armory in Forests Plaza right after completing the first level. It will make your life much easier…
