Well, you've found everything else, so I might as well let you know that the two bonus levels are located in the jungle area on the world map. Just run around near the Jungle Post, hitting the CTRL button constantly, and you'll find them. There's not much in them at the moment.

Try to increase the video bitrate to 12000-15000 in the output options and see if it gets better. Or maybe your PC is not powerful enough.

So this morning I was able to get into an area just above Golden Beaches. I'd been searching for that secret level. I'd completed 1UP and was loading a game from before and after, attempting to spot any differences on the map. I got a message saying "You are not supposed to be here" as I snuck in from the right but could not get past the thong...

Jazzy Jackrabbits! Found secret level 5! Was loading between 3 different saved games so not quite sure how but the previous posts helped.

Um...happy to have been of assistance? :lol I was kind of a jerk about it to DarkAle, but I was trying to respect Roobar's wishes to not have the secret level locations outright spoiled for people.

Whilst I'm bingeing on IX, suppose I should ask if anyone has encountered any secrets within secret level #5?!

I have met the pelican, not sure what the secret chime is for yet. There's what looks like a wooden platform and door above the giant wooden structure (with 4 upright platforms to the right) but so far unable to reach it.
Does the weird looking sign mean anything? What is that?
What about the movable block near the start of the level?
I've left one critter alive and now just exploring...

I'm halfway about secrets revealed.

Nothing worse than reading the walkthrough or turning on the cheat keys and playing first up. I like to start on normal mode (if it's a keen 4 type game, easy for keen 5 coz it's tougher) and beat the game; no candy chasing or looking too hard for secrets. Just beat the game and get into the story.
Later phases are when I try and get all the easter eggs, secret levels, candy etc. A thorough search of each level to really appreciate the creator's work.

After dozens of hours playing this game I think it's only right to have a forum you can come to and scratch heads together. Subtle clues are fine.

Like I said in a post above I still can't get below grate on the Big Derpp Burger level. Driving me bonkers! There's gotta be something simple I've missed! I try shooting or pogo on certain things, trying to time it when the lizards tongue pokes out! That's how crazy it's getting. Do I eat the huge burger? Shoot it? I even tried re-translating the French at the start in case it revealed a clue. :x

Since I've found these secrets, and outright telling people where they are is now acceptable on this thread, I may as well let you know how to reach them.

Once you reach the pelican on Battle Island, return to the beginning of the level. Try taking a leap of faith into the water to the left of where you started the level. Note that this jump isn't possible to make before getting to the pelican.

Big Durrp Burger is actually pretty simple once you figure it out. Go ahead and eat the burger. Try hanging around near where you exit the level, and be sure to look up for a few seconds. You should notice something that's not immediately apparent if you're just playing normally...

Thanks. I just found out Derpp Burger earlier lol. Well gosh I never saw that hey! But is that it? A few 100 points below?

As for the leap of faith. I'd already tried that. But died. So I will investigate this further. Don't think I'd done it after the pelican. What cool noises it makes!

Yeah this game rules!

If you only got 200 points out of it, you definitely missed something.
Hail to the K1n9, baby!

Yeah, you actually missed quite a bit. Let's just say that it's very possible to die on that level if you intend to 100% it.
