      The game cartridge is in the school, when you get inside go to the radio, there will be a locker in the upper right, the game cartridge is in it.

    1. StillFoxy

      From 1 to 6, the Eggos are bosses, you can get those by killing each boss in each chapter. The 7 is in Mrs. Wheeler’s house in the refrigerator and the 8 is inside Bradley’s Big Buy, you need Nancy to go through a broken wall and collect the last eggo. I hope i helped you =D.

    Hey, can you tell me specific locations of the balloons and surveillance cameras?
    I’m missing one of each and it’s all I have left to correct hearts 2 and 12.
    In the sewers, when I open my map it says 4 of 5 of the balloons. But if I go into the Upside Down it says I have 5 of 5.
    I’m not sure if it’s the same at the Lab.

  7. Yantur
