MAPK0, Waterfall Valley Zone Act 1, abbreviated as WVZ1, is the first act of Waterfall Valley Zone, the first zone in Acid Missile. Its length and theme are typical for a first level, taking place in a GFZ-themed environment with several waterfalls and lakes. It is slightly longer and more difficult than Greenflower Zone Act 1. This is the only regular Single Player level from Acid Missile that was not submitted to the Official Level Design Contest.

Walkthrough

Make your way forward until you reach a river with several SDURFs jumping in it. You can either take the red spring to your right or jump into the river.

Path split

Upper path

Take the red spring to be propelled up to the top of the waterfall feeding the river. At the top, walk against the current until you fall into a deep pool of water. Take the yellow spring to the right to reach the top of another waterfall. Jump down to land on a bridge with a Star Post. The path continues to the left. If you missed the bridge and landed in the water, there are springs to take you out.

Lower path

Jump into the river and avoid the SDURFs. The river will carry you into a large valley with a lake at the bottom. Exit the lake via the springs in front of you. Then exit the room to your left, but be quick, because Detons will start chasing you. After a while, you will reach a bridge with a Star Post. Here both paths reunite.

Final section

Continue until you reach a tall cliff that blocks your path. To your right is a diagonal yellow spring. Take it to be thrown up to a ledge with another spring and up to the top of the cliff. Continue until you reach a river. Jump into it and let it carry you until you reach an opening to your right. From there, you can go either left or right. Both paths end up at a large lake. Jump into it and take the springs to be thrown up the high cliff, where the Level End Sign is located.

Points of interest

  • Take the red spring at the path split. An Elemental Shield sits in the center of the deep pool of water you reach afterwards.
  • Jump into the river at the path split and let it carry you into the large valley with the lake. After taking the springs to reach dry land, look to your right to see two pillars with diagonal yellow springs. Take them to reach a higher pillar. From there, jump across another pillar to a tall rock with a tunnel in the middle. Walk through the tunnel to find a diagonal red spring, which will propel you to another tall rock with an invincibility monitor.
  • After reaching the top of the cliff after the Star Post, look in the corner to your right to find a diagonal red spring hidden behind a group of bushes. It will propel you to a high cliff next to the start of the river. Turn around and jump towards the top of the waterfall feeding the river. You will land on a thin ledge with an extra life.

Emerald token locations

Token #1
At the bridge with the Star Post, jump into the water to your right and turn around to find a bustable wall. Break it and walk through the tunnel behind it to reach the token.
Token #2
In the river after the Star Post, instead of jumping off to the right, continue forward until the river ends in a waterfall leading into a death pit. On the far right corner of the death pit, there's an entrance to a narrow tunnel. Jump down to it and walk through the tunnel to find the token. The tunnel leads into the lake area at the end.

Emblem locations

  • Sonic: Jump into the river at the path split and let it carry you into the large valley with the lake. After taking the springs to reach dry land, look to your right to see two pillars with diagonal yellow springs. Take them to reach a higher pillar. From there, jump across another pillar to a tall rock with a tunnel in the middle. Walk through the tunnel to find a diagonal red spring, which will propel you to another tall rock with an invincibility monitor. From there, turn around and jump down to the top of the rock you came from. Here you will find the emblem.
  • Tails: At the bridge with the Star Post, jump into the water to your left to find a Super Ring Monitor and an emblem.
  • Knuckles: Jump into the river at the path split and let it carry you into the large valley with the lake. There are two tall rocks rising up from the lake. Climb up the wall behind the one to the left to find the emblem floating in mid-air.
