    From the following link, look for the seeker achievement and press where it says "here". When prompted, open the file or save it if you like. It is an interactive map where you can actually click on the squares and it tells you what is there and how to get there if it is not obvious. It is a very useful map.

    *Credit goes to Zorkwiz for creating the map*

    Credit to SAX89: As rooms go, there are 942 rooms in the normal castle and 948 in the inverted with a total of 1890 rooms. So the castles are not exactly the same.

    EarthboundXAnyone know a good free excel viewer? I have one, but I can't figure out how to get the map off read only, so I can actually do more then just look at it.

    NM, I got it to work.

    Uzumaki DKGreat to have maps! I was around 195% when i completed the game for the first time with this achievement in the back of my head. Finally got it, the last rooms I needed were the ones where you have to walk around as a bat/wolf in the stone. Would never guess that.

    Thanks for posting

    Here is a link to the map of the castle both rightside up and inverted. Also for the 200.6% this also counts spots where the wall breaks but it does not lead to another room.

    RisottoRageI'm at 200.4% after using the map guides and I'm quite stumped. I feel this game is mocking me.

    FauxcroftTake a picture of your map and put it on here, extra eyes always helps those who are weary.

    HandheldRobin44excellent map! One quick suggestion as someone already mentioned: in the beginning of the level where you have a huge rock in the middle and run thru it with the wolf form you also need to fly in with the bat as well and it will open a secret area where the mermen are spawning. same in the inverted castle as well.

    You need to make every section of your map LIGHT BLUE, even the sections you don't know are there just by looking at your map. Still, it's best to go ahead and fill in every place as you go along. It encourages you to explore a great game.

    Before the final boss fight, make sure you get anything you may have missed. I tried to fill up everything on the maps, and I was at 200.5% before going in to the final fight.

    You can check your progress at any time by going from the main menu to your save file in-game.

    Compare your map with these maps:

    They need to look the same. If it helps, the last square I found to hit 200.5% was X=106, Y=47.

    If you need help getting to a certain area, try this great walkthrough:

    Hidden Rooms

    Inverted Castle Hidden Rooms

    To fill in the areas in the water, you'll need the Holy Symbol so that you can traverse the water without taking damage. This allows you to morph into the wolf while in the water so you can swim (Y) and reach the areas you need.

    How to get the Holy Symbol

    How to fill in the final gaps

    I take no credit for the videos, walkthrough, or maps.

    DrakendenCan you come back to the regular castle after unlocking the reverse version? I think missed a couple rooms...

    XI AlphaMale IXYes. Just go to the spot where you teleported to the inverted castle originally. X=120, Y=32 on the map I linked... I think that's the room that takes you back.
