You start by sliding down a long slope. Jump up, roll, and slide down backwards to drop at the end. If you slide forwards, you can get stuck at the edge. However, press CTRL and Lara will drop onto the lower ledge and you can continue. Press the END key and you rotate about the vertical axis instead of rolling. Walk to the edge of the lava pit. Stand jump to grab the horizontal pole and spin forward to jump into a dark alcove. Light a flare and grab the ceiling. Go south to the end of the ceiling. Press the RIGHT ARROW and the DOWN ARROW and Lara swings around to the right and climbs the climbable surface of the front of the block. Pull up into another dark tunnel.
Run forward and try a jump. Lara does a fancy slow motion roll about the horizontal axis during the forward jump. It looks like the start of a swan dive. Back flips are similarly fancy. Side jumps are also different looking. Go north to another lava pit. Stand near the middle of the edge and face slightly north of east towards the lava pit. Stand jump forward and use a right curve to make a banana jump land in another tunnel. Use the curve when Lara is over the lava pit or you curve too sharply and hit the wall to fall into the lava pit. Continue down the tunnel and Lara has trouble running off the edge so use CTRL or just jump down to the lower part of the tunnel. Got the end and face another lava pit.
Stand near the middle of the edge and face slightly south of east towards the lava pit. Stand jump forward and use a left curve to make a banana jump land in another tunnel. Go forward and shoot a ninja. You have limited ammo for the pistols. The ninja may jump over you and land in the lava pit so you can ignore him. Go west to the start of a ramp. Look to the left and pick up flares from the floor. Go up to the top of the ramp. Run and jump over the lave pit to land on the next ledge. Go north to jump to a column and then onto another ledge.
Go north up the dark ramp and jump to the lower floor in front of a lava pit. Go north-east onto the ledge that sticks out into the lava. Run and jump with no grab to the north-west to get across the lava pit. Go to the north-east corner and pull up into a tunnel. Follow the tunnel east to overlook another lava pit. The next jump is hard because of the way Lara stumbles at an edge. Stand two tiles back from the lava pit and at the right (south) wall. Run forward and curve to the left and jump over the edge. Keep curving to the left over the lava and towards the north wall to grab a crevice. Shimmy to the left and drop onto a safe ledge. The upper crevice seems to lead nowhere.
Follow the tunnel to the west and into a dark cave. You may have to crawl to get into the entrance. There is a wall ladder in the middle of the south wall. Climb the wall ladder and keep the UP ARROW pressed and Lara grabs the monkey swing. Do not use the UP and DOWN ARROW keys to rotate Lara or she disappears into the ceiling and you are stuck. Use only the LEFT ARROW key to rotate to the left. Go forward on the monkey swing. When you reach a fancy tile, turn to the right and continue east. When you reach a fancy tile, turn to the left and continue north. When you reach a fancy tile, turn to the left and continue west. When you reach a fancy tile, release and drop onto the top of the hill. Use the floor lever and the gate opens in the lower north-west corner.
Slide down the hill and go to the north-west and enter the open gate. Jump again to get over a small edge. You are in another dark room. Go west and jump up to grab a crevice on a wall. Press ALT (jump) and the DOWN ARROW and Lara jumps up to grab the ledge above the crevice. Pull up onto the ledge and go to the south-west corner underneath a hole. Climb the east wall and at the top, shimmy to the right and drop onto the side. Or just press ALT (jump) and Lara will back flip from the ladder. You are in a large outdoor area. Go west and jump into the water. Swim to the middle and you get secret #1. Swimming looks different as Lara only uses her feet. Her arms seem strapped to her sides. Pull up onto the south ledge. Go south and jump over the fence and the level ends.
