The Curvy Caverns is the first secret level of Forest Island in Croc: Legend of the Gobbos. It is open to those who have collected the 6 Gobbos from the last three normal levels: And So The Adventure Begins, Underground Overground and Shoutin' Lava Lava Lava. The level contains no Gobbos but offers the first Jigsaw Piece available of the eight in the game required to unlock the secret Crystal Island.
This is first secret level of the game. You can go to a secret level, if you get all the Gobbos from three successive levels before same Guardian level. Anyway, get some crystals and don't fall down. Be careful, because there is a Jumping Dantini, who jumps from over the gorge. Get some more crystals from a Smash Box and board the Arrow Platform. Be careful, because there are jumping Fireballs. Dodge them and carefully walk forward while collecting some more crystals. Go through the door. Go left, destroy Running Dantini, and go through the next door. Be careful, there are Firepoppers. Go forward and when you go uphill, destroy a Firepopper and get some crystals from the Smash Boxes. Above the boxes is a Silver Key. Get it, go back to Section 2, open the Cage holding the Red Button, and get a Heart from a Smash Box, thanks to the newly made platform above the Lava. Go back to Section 3 and be careful, because there is a Worm in a Well near the door. Go forward, through the door to Section 4, and collect the crystals as you go (don't turn left at the junction, yet!). When it’s done, go through the door. Get the crystals and jump on the platforms. Destroy a Running Dantini, collect a Gold Key, and return to Section 4. Then, go forward and turn right. Jump on the platforms to go up, but don't get the Jigsaw Piece. Go through the Locked Door to the left with the Gold Key. Collect the crystals and take the platforms up to the top of the room. There, you will get two Hearts. When you get them, go down and back to Section 4. Collect the Jigsaw Piece to complete the level.
