I like to hide from people. Usually they never find me.
If you find me again, I'll give you more information.
Don't expect it to be this easy next time...


88 Hide and Go Seek (かくれ里のヤン, Kakure Sato no Yan, lit. Yan of the Hidden Village) is an event in Tomba!. This event is mandatory in order to complete the additional events in the second game.


Play hide-and-seek with Yan, who will be hiding in various locations in the game.


This event is activated when the Who are you? event is cleared. Yan wants to play hide-and-seek with Tomba and runs off. Yan can be found in several places in the game.

These are the locations where Yan can be found in the following order:

Location Description Image
Charity Square Inside the Leaf Butterfly cage. Hide and Go Seek 1
Phoenix Mountain Inside the room with the laughing door.
Masakari Jungle On top of the building found to the left from the entrance to Village of Civilization. Use the long palm tree to get up there. Hide and Go Seek 3
Haunted Mansion Behind the straw in one of the rooms. Equip and activate the Jewel of Fire to burn away the straw.

When he has been found at these places, he can be found in his home village; the Hidden Village. Head over there, where he is standing in the far north part of the village. Talk to him to clear the event and get the Golden Bowl, which allows Tomba to have up to sixteen pieces of health instead of just eight pieces.
