Work-In-Progress: Check back soon for new updates.

  • Don’t forget: Shard collectibles only appear after using the Time-Out ability. Use it often to spot these floating power-ups! Collect by shooting or touching them.

Level: 198X

  • Part 1
    • Shard #1: Early in the stage, you’ll run into the first destructable water tower. Look for the shard above the nearby 10 second bonus clock.
    • Shard #2: After saving Jef (or watching him die) there’s a yellow destructable trash bin. Destroy it and rewind to find the hidden diamond shard just to the right, in the upper corner of the first destroyed building.
    • Shard #3: Past the destroyed buildings, you’ll have to fight a large blue robot on an overturned yellow bus below another water tower. Before moving forward, look for the white car on its side. The shard is in the sky, above and to the left of the white vehicle’s crash site.
  • Part 2
    • Shard #1: At the ruined building wall with a wooden board as a ramp, look above the destructable door and to the left.
    • Shard #2: Fighting through some building ruins, you’ll eventually reach a tower with a door on the ground floor and a window you can smash above. Destroy the window and search to the right to spot another shard.
    • Shard #3: The last shard is located in the giant blue robot arena.

Level: Year 199X

  • Part 1
    • Shard #1: Early in the level, just as you meet one of the dynamite throwers on a platform, you’ll find the shard to his left.
    • Shard #2: Moving through the underground passage with the bunker, continue right to find a tall canyon with a water tower covered in enemies. Around the scaffolding to the left of the tower, the shard will appear.
    • Shard #3: Right above the explosive barrel-throwing boss enemy at the end of the stage.
  • Part 2
    • Shard #1: Look near the windmill near the stack of explosive barrels right as the level starts.

    • Shard #3: Once again, the last shard is located in the upper center area of the flying robot boss room.
  • Part 3
    • Shard #1: One of the first obstacle to jump over is a refrigerator tied to the back of a car. The door can be destroyed, too. Jump on top and look above it to find the first shard of this chapter.
    • Shard #2: After blowing open the flamethrower barricade, you’ll leap onto the back of a truck with a Super Time Force logo on the back. Watch out for the minigunner, and look above the blue trailer, closer to the cab, to find the shard.
    • Shard #3: Like the last two areas, the final shard is located in the mini-boss arena. This one is hanging above the motorcyclist in the top right corner of the screen.

Level: 1,000,000 BC

  • Part 1
