The Nightmare Peaks 1 is a Mountain level in Kid Chameleon.


If you still have a Cyclone or Micromax helmet, you can go straight up, otherwise you find a new Micromax helmet in the Prize block to the right. Move up until you end up in the top left corner of the level, where you find a chamber with a row of Teleporters at the floor. Don't even try them out, they will all warp you back to the start of the level.

Leave the chamber and move out. Near the top is a prize block with 10 diamonds. Go down until you seem to be stuck in a shaft between mountains without a way to go own. But surprise, you can continue to the right through a hidden passage. But be careful: don't drop to your death! Be also cautious with the golden Spheres bouncing around there. You have to continue at the right, climbing the narrow shaft. There are more balls there as well as Drill blocks. The flag is at the very top right.


  • There are a lot of shortcuts to be found here. Right at the start you can cross through the first mountain through a hidden passage. You should take the Micromax helmet to take the next passage through the next mountain above the ghost block. This will cut the entirely upper part of the level in a matter of seconds.You can just as well cut the lower part of the level.
  • There's another hidden passage just left of the flag at the top edge of the level.
  • There are some goodie chambers off the path containing ankhs and coins. Also, the top of the Teleporter room holds three secret prize blocks in the top middle and in the edges, holding a clock (left), a coin (middle) and an ankh (right).
  • From one of the goodie chambers there's another secret path leading to another teleporter in the rocks. This is the only teleporter leading out of the level, to Elsewhere 16.
