The Ghost Guide
Welcome to the ghost guide, a guide explaining the cryptic mystery behind the hidden ghosts of Vista Island. I'm the Syaxamaphone and I'll be your pilot this evening as we hunt for the 20 hidden ghosts. Want to find them yourself? No problem. The first section will simply explain the rules better, the actual location guide would be further down.
What are the hidden ghosts?
In Vista Quest 2, there are 20 hidden ghost enemies scattered around the island. These ghosts remain invisible until hit by the yo-yo. Upon contact, they show themselves. While visible, they can now damage you should you happen to collide with one. Simply jump on its head to defeat it. At this point, the ghost is forever beaten and will not re spawn.
What do I get for finding them all?
By finding and defeating all 20 ghosts, you get the 'Ghoul Patrol' achievement, required for 100% completion.
Four per world, one per level.
They hide outdoors, but in the shade.
Use your yo-yo to flush them out.
-there is at max, one ghost per level
-exactly four levels per world house a ghost
-ghosts are always in the same place in their level
-ghosts are completely invisible until hit with the yo yo
-ghosts will not be in indoor levels (caves, castles, etc.)
-only parts of the level covered by background tiles will house ghosts. Ghosts will not be hidden in areas where the parallax-scrolling background is visible.
-visible ghosts don't count for completion, the ghost must be jumped on and defeated to count.
-defeated ghosts will show up on your ghost tracker stat screen for easy completion tracking.
