Level 1: Dinosaur Research Centre
You start by dropping into a pool in a large room. There is a doorway in the south wall that leads to a laser trap. There is a yellow tile on the floor near the column to the south-west. Go north and enter the doorway. Walk, not run, through the safe blue lasers and trigger a spike trap ahead of you. Time a safe sprint through the spikes and enter the next room. You see a large tall aquarium with fish and a ramp. Follow up the ramp to the see a tunnel to the north. The ramp continues but for now go through the north tunnel and into a small room.
You can see a covered pushbutton and a receptacle. Go through the yellow lasers in the east doorway. They cause non-fatal damage. Use the boxes to the north to get to the ground floor. Shoot two guards and pick up Uzi's from one of them. You can shoot a box in the south-east corner but it is empty. Go to the south-west corner of the room. Climb the boxes at the south wall. Go to the back wall and look to the right to see opening. Drop down there and go to the end of a short tunnel to pick secret #1 and Red Crystal #1. Exit back into the room.
Follow the east wall to the north a little ways and enter an alcove to your left to find a skeleton and the Green key. Pick up the key and turn around to shoot two green dinosaurs. Go north to the corner and then go to the east. You see an opening closed by a grate on the north wall. Continue east to shoot an empty box. Drop into a hole at the south-east corner for a large medipack. You can go south to get back here you started. That is the ground floor tour. Climb the boxes in the middle of the room to reach the suspended platform. There are boxes to move in this room but that can be done later.
Jump back to the entrance ledge and go through the yellow lasers. Exit the room and go up the ramp and stop before the next tunnel. Turn to the south and stand at the edge. Hop back once and run and jump forward to grab and use the two horizontal poles to spin and jump to the ledge at the south wall. Pick up laser sight and stand at the middle of the ledge. Jump forward to grab and use the pole to get back to the ramp. Now go east into the tunnel. Stop when you see the skeletons that indicate a deadly spike trap. Go east and use the Green Key to open the door behind you.
Enter the room and press the pushbutton on the wall. You get a cut scene showing spikes in the outside tunnel. Go there and if you walk through the spikes, there is no health lost. If you sprint through the spikes, you lose a lot of health. Stop on the other side and go into the south alcove to pull down a jump switch. Return to the tunnel and see more spikes to walk through. Walk through the spikes and blue lasers to enter the room. You get a fast flyby of the room showing a door opening. Stand on the bridge over the water pool and safely shoot the two raptors. Enter a small room in the south-east corner and pick a small medipack and Uzi ammo.
Go up the ramp and run through the yellow lasers. Save the game in front of the timed wall switch. Look to the north-east and you can see the timed platform. Pull down the wall switch and run through the yellow lasers towards the platform. Jump to the nearest edge of the platform and then run and jump with a left curve onto the next balcony. The camera view changes so go north until you get the normal view. Look back and you can see a closed door and a key lock. Go west down the balcony and the camera view changes again. Double doors open as you pass them. Enter the double doors into a small room with boxes.
Crawl onto the south-west box for flares. You can see another room at the east wall. Pull back two boxes to get into that room. Enter the room and shoot two green dinosaurs. Pull out the box at the north wall. Get behind the box and pick up the crowbar. Exit this room and drop off the balcony. Go down the ramp into the first room with the many boxes. Go to that grate you saw in the north wall and use the crowbar to open the grate. Enter the room and go to the right. Open the cabinet and get revolver ammo. Press the pushbutton on the west wall and get a cut scene of the door on the top ledge of the box room.
Climb the boxes to the upper ledge and go into the open door. You get a cut scene showing a dark floor tile at the side wall. I though the game froze but it was back to normal after a few seconds. Exit the room and return to the ground floor. Return to the alcove where you used the crowbar on the grate to open it. Look south and see a box with a red flammable sign. There is an empty space to the right of it. To your immediate right are a short box and then a light brown box. That light brown box is movable and also climbable. Move the light brown box into that empty space. Stand on that box and look west. Move the gray box with the yellow flammable symbol onto the light brown box. The top box also moves with the bottom box. Get onto the suspended platform above you. Move the box from the south-east corner of the platform into the room and place it on the dark floor tile from the cut scene. The door opens in the east wall.
Turn around and shoot a guard. Enter the room and search the cabinet for a Circuit Card. Exit the room and go south to return back through the yellow lasers to the small room. Place the Circuit card in the receptacle. The cover is removed from the pushbutton behind you. Shoot the empty box and press the pushbutton. You get a cut scene of a block rising in the starting room. Exit this room and go down the ramp. Time a run through the spikes and the blue lasers again and enter the starting room. Hop onto the block in the south-west corner of the room and hop onto the balcony.
To the east are doors that need two items. Go south and step on an elevator floor plate that descends. Continue south and through the two yellow lasers.

Approach the double doors in the east wall and the doors open. Follow the corridor through yellow lasers and get a flyby of the next room. The water pool is electrified. Shoot the guard on the south ledge although it will take some time.
Go to the east and turn to the right into an alcove and save the game. Pull down the timed wall switch to raise a timed platform in the electrified water pool. Turn and run to the south. About one tile from the edge, jump with grab to clear the upper wall and glide onto the nearest edge of the platform. You may have to step back a little. Run and jump to grab the horizontal pole and swing over the water. Pick up the Red Key that was dropped by the dead guard. You see a receptacle that needs a fuse. Hop onto that block for Uzi ammo. Go to the west wall and pull down a jump switch to raise platforms in the pool. Jump the platforms back to the north ledge. The last jump is hard because the wires get in the way. Stay at the side of the wall to get past the wires.
Return down the ramp and through the yellow lasers to the elevator floor plate. Climb the wall and get to the starting room. Go north through the spikes and up the ramp again. Go east to walk through the spikes and the blue lasers again. Go up the ramp through the yellow lasers and save in front of the timed wall switch again.
