All 12 levels have a specific amount of minimotes. To check how many of which minimotes are on the level, pause the game. In order to collect a minimote you must have the corresponding emotion on, i.e. Angry for angry and happy for happy. Most minimotes are always easy to find and usually in your direct path. Note that you must complete the level in order for the minimotes you collected to register.
Some of the harder to find minimotes are:
- Level 2 The Canopy: There is another tree exactly like the tree you are comming out of at the beginning it is not too far into the level, go down the tree and collect three happy minimotes.
- Level 4 The Doldrums: Use your happy emotion at the start to collect 6 happy minimotes.
- Level 7 The Pits: Just after you put a ball through three oil fountains, jump down, go right, and find nine confusion minimotes.
- Level 12 Lost and Found: At the end of the level there is a wheel and a breakable brick in a "windmill" make sure you get down before the wheel does or else you will miss four sad and four angry minimotes. If you don't do this right, you will not get them.
