The Haunted Catacombs can be a very confusing area. This room is essentially a collection of intersections, but many of the available paths are simply illusions. One wrong turn, and you find yourself back where you started!
The Polterpup’s trail marks a safe path through the entire area, but it bypasses a number of important secrets. If you want to find everything this area has to offer, you’ll have to do a bit of exploration.


From the Throne to the Coffin Painting

After the throne carries you down into the Haunted Catacombs, take the following path to find the coffin painting:
From the throne, move two intersections to the south to find a suit of armor.
Move one intersection to the east. The coffin painting can be seen to the north.
Move one intersection to the north and vacuum the coffin painting.

Once the painting is out of they way, you can see an actual coffin along the north wall. Unfortunately, the path is blocked by a set of bars.

The coffin contains a bonus challenge, so it’s definitely worth finding a route around the bars. Take the following path:
After you vacuum the coffin painting, move one intersection to the south.
Move one intersection to the east.
Move two intersections to the north. You have now passed between the sword-swinging suits of armor to arrive at the north wall.

Grab the treasure on the ground, then open the coffin to enter a bonus challenge. Complete the challenge to earn your reward and exit the coffin. Now it’s time to head to the Underground Lab.

From the Coffin to the Underground Lab

If you return to the Polterpup’s trail, you can follow the tracks right to the Underground Lab. There’s a hidden chest near the door, however, so make sure you grab it before you head inside. Take the following path:
After you emerge from the coffin, move two intersections to the east.

From the Underground Lab to the Large Webs

The Polterpup doesn’t spend much time in the second half of the Haunted Catacombs. To find the secrets hidden in the area, you must to a great deal of exploring. Your first task is to find the large webs along the room’s north wall.
