Level by PH (April, 2008)
[Note] This level uses some new moves that the author mentions in his readme file.
Move #1: Use CTRL and JUMP to jump up and grab a crevice or crawl space above you.
Move #2: Use CTRL and DOWN ARROW to turn around and jump to grab a ledge or a crevice that is behind you. Just tap the DOWN ARROW. Do not hold the key down.
They work very well and I did not get stuck once. [End note]
The level starts with a flyby over a lava lake. You start on a structure in the middle of the lava lake and face a statue. Turn around and jump to the north column. Time the rolling ball to run and jump onto the track. Run west and jump to grab the platform in the north-west corner. Run and jump to the east onto the arch above the rolling ball. Go to the middle and jump to grab a hanging chain. Swing and jump to the higher platform. You see a Lara statue with no face. Crouch down in front of the statue and pick up the crowbar. It looks like a curved sword. Safety drop back to the starting platform.
Jump to the north column again. Time the rolling ball to run and jump onto the track. Run west and jump to grab the platform in the north-west corner. This time, run and jump to the south and land on a sloped ledge. Slide down and jump forward to grab a ledge. Pull up and ignore the chain for now. Run south off the edge and land near a floor lever. Use the floor lever and stand jump to grab the sloped column to the east. Slide down and jump back onto the central structure.
Jump to the north column again. Time the rolling ball to run and jump onto the track. This time run to the east and jump to land on a ledge east of the track. Run and jump over the next two ledges and enter the open door. Slide down the slope and jump over the spike trap. Run up the stairs and follow the tunnel to a room with moveable blocks. Move the two blocks and pull down the jump switch on the wall.
As you return towards the entrance you can see a floor lever in an alcove. I think that there is a choice here.
Choice #1: Ignore it and exit back to the spikes.
Choice #2: Use the floor lever and get a cut scene of the Lara statue floating and a winged women running around the middle platform. This women shoots at you as you move around. She can be killed but it takes a long time with the pistols. I think that this is done to let you get the crowbar that was between the legs of the Lara statue. But you already got the crowbar. Exit back to the spikes.
Stand at the right side of the spikes with the west wall at you shoulder. Time the spikes and run and jump to grab the south wall ledge and shimmy to the right before the spikes pop up. Crawl into the alcove and go to the right and stand up. Stand jump with grab to get into the entrance tunnel. Jump the ledges again. On the last ledge, run and jump to grab a hard-to-see crevice on the rolling ball track structure. Shimmy to the left to the middle of the track. When the ball passes, use CTRL and ALT to jump up and grab the edge of the track. Jump to the south column as the ball rolls pass again.
Jump back to the central platform. Go to the south side and run and jump to a column. Run and jump onto the ledge at the south wall. Climb the ladder and pull up into the tunnel. Enter the small room and go to the south wall. Grab the crevice and shimmy to the right wall. Use CTRL and ALT to jump up and grab the higher crevice. Shimmy to the left wall. Use CTRL and tap the DOWN arrow to turn and jump to grab a crevice on the opposite wall. Use CTRL and ALT to jump up and grab the higher ledge. Pull up into the alcove. Pull up onto the block to the west. Run diagonally across the block and jump to grab the ledge on the south wall. Pull up into the dark alcove. Stand with you back against the south wall and use the crowbar on the broken lever switch.
Run and jump to the lower part of the north wall alcove. Grab the edge and shimmy to the left. Release and grab the crevice below you. Use CTRL and ALT to turn and jump to grab the crevice on the opposite wall. Safety drop to the floor and exit the room. Jump to the column and back to the central platform.
Jump to the north column again. Time the rolling ball to run and jump onto the track. Run west and jump to grab the platform in the north-west corner. This time, run and jump to the south and land on a sloped ledge again. Slide down and jump forward to grab a ledge. Pull up onto the ledge with the chain. Climb the chain until Lara's head is on the fifth chain link from the top. Back flip and you should land on the ledge behind the open gate. Enter the tunnel and follow the crawl space. Ignore the opening to the left. Follow the crawl space forward until you can stand up in the tunnel.
Ignore the left branch tunnel for now. Run north and follow the tunnel to a room with a statue of a woman in a light spiral. You get a flyby of the room. Now exit and return to the other branch tunnel. Follow the tunnel and go through an open gate. Continue and you enter a room with moveable blocks. The blocks can be moved in a clockwise rotation. Go to the north wall and notice an incline. Push a moveable block to the south. Pull the moveable block from the west to the east. Pull the moveable block from the north to the south. This should reveal a wall texture of light gray color. Pull this moveable block from the wall to reveal a tunnel. Pull it back twice without stopping and Lara is between two blocks. Side jump out of the blocks. This cheats a little but I did not see an honest way of moving the other blocks. Go behind the gray block and enter the tunnel.
Enter the room and run and jump over the spikes to land in the tunnel in the west wall. Follow the tunnel to a spike pit and a slope. Carefully go up the slope and when you see a rolling rock, crouch down and the rock flies over your head. Then run and jump up the slope and use a right curve to land in the room to the right of the slope. Pull up onto the column in the room. Stand jump to pull down a jump switch and hopefully land when the spikes below it are down and jump off the spike trap. This requires lucky timing and no amount of skill can help you. After some very large numbers of tries, you will make it. Run down the east corridor to a floor lever. But it is actually a mummy. You can shoot a scorpion and avoid the mummy. Go to the east wall and pull up into a higher tunnel.
Follow the tunnel and drop into a hole. Crawl out and emerge back onto the ledge with the open gate. A second chain has dropped from the ceiling. Run and jump to grab the new chain. Swing and jump onto the top platform of the structure to the east. Climb the block and pull up into the outside world. Jump onto the west ledge to greet the woman there and the level ends.
