There are 12 treasures to find in each of the 5 game worlds in Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time. If you find all the 12 treasures in one of the game worlds, you unlock a fun mini-game. However, collecting all the treasures can prove to be a difficult task. There are a couple of things you need to note before we begin locating the treasures.
Firstly, whenever you pick up a treasure piece, you have a specific time limit in which you need to get it to the arcade machine in the world’s hideout. Furthermore, if you get hit by a guard on your way back to the hideout, it will reset everything. Keep in mind to stay out of water too as it slows down your movement greatly thus decreasing your chances of making to the hideout in time.
Moreover, we advise that you buy the Para glider and Rail Sprint abilities from ThiefNet. These abilities will make your life much easier by giving you that extra bit of mobility. Additionally, you will need to have all five costumes for Sly Cooper unlocked. They will be vital in retrieving the treasures.
