Savage Swarms is the first level of the Grumbling Grottos, a world in Rayman Origins. Flying creatures appear heavily in this level but the heroes can briefly drive them away by punching gongs to create sound waves. This is the first level from this world and twenty-first overall that's not included in the Back to Origins mode in Rayman Legends.
As the heroes advance, they come across a large group of flying creatures. In order to scare them away and continue, the heroes must punch a gong to create a sound wave, causing the flying creatures to move away for a short period of time. Some sound waves are already provided by other objects. At one point, a special kind of cyclops gong will appear. This specific one, if punched, creates a sound wave around the heroes, but it won't last long. The first Skull Coin can be collected by punching the yellow gong and reaching the coin surrounded by flying creatures. The second Skull Coin can be found through performing a walljump above the exit.
The first gong seen in the level.
The same gong after it has been hit.
Another type of gong.
Cyclops gongs will provide a sound wave which follows the heroes.
This area starts out quiet, with no enemies in sight. Along the way, if the heroes crush attack on a slanted drum and perform walljumps, they find the first secret area. After the Electoons are saved, the heroes can move on. The heroes will come across two paths, both will result in finding a Skull Coin, the third and fourth ones. But the lower path will need to be taken in order to continue. More gongs of the variety are still useful for getting to the exit. The fifth Skull Coin can be retrieved by going down and punching a gong to the right of the coin.
Secret area 1
The first secret area, where the heroes need to stay within the sound waves in order to avoid the flying creatures.
After a while, the heroes need to activate a switch to make one of the sound waves move around to scare off more flying creatures. The sixth Skull Coin can be acquired by punching a cyclops gong and using the sound wave to pass through the flying creatures. The heroes continue to use the moving and stationary sound waves to their advantage. The heroes will eventually escape the flying creatures. The second secret area can be found by using a Swingman to be able to perform a walljump to the platform leading up to the door. The exit is close by.
Secret area 2
Rayman and his friends must use the mosquitoes to reach the Electoon cage. During the ride, projectiles need to be shot on certain gongs to scare away flying creatures. When the heroes get to the end, they need to keep a gong providing a sound wave while destroying the Red Birds. Once done, the cage can be broken.
In this area, the cyclops gongs will be used more to get past the flying creatures. Because of this, the heroes need to be quick when moving along, because the gongs are spread out. The exit is not too far away.
A Red Bird.
All the heroes need to do is defeat the four Red Birds around the Electoon cage. When completed, the cage can be broken open to end the level. The heroes will then pose on the photoboard as the Magician waits for the total amount of Lums that were collected.
