Secrets How to unlock

Ico Symbol

If you use a memory card with an Ico save-game on it, your horse Aggro will have the Ico "I" logo on its forehead as opposed to the usual mark.

Increase health and stamina with Lizards and Fruit.

The white lizards crawling around in many areas of the game can be eaten to increase Stamina. Equip the bow and shoot a lizard, then press the Circle button to pick up and eat it.

or . . .

Equip the bow and shoot at the Fruit hanging in the tree.  Ounce it drops go over and press the Circle button to eat it.

Reminiscence Mode

After killing a Colossus, you can go back to their petrified bodies and, by pressing Circle, your character will kneel down and pray. This opens Reminiscence Mode, a mode where you can find the Colossus again as though it were a flashback.

The Short Way to the Secret Garden.

You do not need to beat the game 4 times to reach the secret garden. All you have to do is work on your diagonal jump. When you grab a climbable wall you have to hold jump and the left analog stick diagonally up until your character swings his arm. Once he does this, let go of the jump button and you will scale the wall diagonally without using a large amount of stamina.

Before you decide to reach the secret garden, it is advisable to defeat aprocimately 7 colossi so you can acquire enough stamina to take on the task. You could also search for white-tailed lizards.

To reach the secret garden, you have to locate the wall of ivy on the northeast side of the temple shrine. You can use your horse and just jump off into the wall of ivy in order to save stamina. Follow it all the way up until you reach a ledge on the right and go around it.  Leap across to the visible moss and keep going around the second ledge above. Once you get to the other side, you have to go around yet another ledge, which is a little bit below your position. You will reach a circular pillar that you have to jump onto. This is easily done by putting yourself directly opposite of it and then jumping across.  The moss will lead you a little bit towards the left to a small walkway. Follow the stairs to the secret garden. Enjoy, but do not eat the fruit because it will decrease your health permanently.

Star Wars-Like Weapon

(This code applies to any non-US version of the game only).

With 2 Player Mode enabled, play the game through the waterfall and reach an area where you get the mace.   A Star Wars-like Weapon will fly in instead of a mace.

This weapon is very powerful and will kill the shadow within 1-2 hits. And the weapon will be lengthened to triple the size of the sword if you grab Yorda's hand when attacking.
