Walkthrough by Harry Laudie
[Note] I used the Tomb Raider South Pacific demo to play the game. [End note]
You start by sliding down a small slope into a large room. Go to the far left corner and push the moveable block around the column to the other side of the column. Hop onto the block and pull up onto the higher ledges. Move the two moveable blocks in the corners onto the two tiles with the circle design. Two doors open in the room below. Safety drop to the ground and shoot two tigers. Enter the doors into the next room with three sets of steps and three closed doors. Go to the right corner and pick up a small medipack. Pull down the wall switch and the doors open in that wall. Enter the doors and face a room with rolling blades. Get through the blades and save the game. When the rolling blades go pass, stand jump onto the items on the floor. Pick up a small medipack, shotgun shells, and Uzi ammo for secret #1. Quickly back flip to avoid the rolling blades. You need to land exactly on the items when you jump. If you have to move, it takes too much time and the rolling blades get you.
Turn around and face a room with a lava floor. Slide down a slope onto a platform. You get a cut scene of a key on a block. Ignore the long slope and run and jump onto the platform in the right corner. Back flip onto a slope and jump forward to grab a column. Pull up and run and jump to the next column. Notice a closed gate in the corner. Go left to run and jump onto the column into the middle of the lava. Run and jump to the column under the block with the key. Run over the breakable tiles to the corner. Grab the green wall ladder and shimmy to the left to the end. Drop onto a ledge, roll, and go forward to a wall switch. Pull down the wall switch and follow the green wall ladder back again. Run and jump the columns again around the room and enter the open gate in the corner.
Pull up into the higher opening in the wall opposite the entrance gate. You enter another room with a lava floor. Run and jump over the breakable tile immediately below you to land on a ledge with a fence. Do not break that tile. You will need it to get back. Follow the safe ledges and breakable tiles around the room. Run and jump onto a ledge to pick up a small medipack, shotgun and shotgun shells for secret #2. Do a side jump to the left onto the breakable tile below the entrance. Jump forward to grab the edge of the opening. Pull up and drop down into the corridor.
Follow the corridor to more ledges over the first lava room. Run and jump the ledges and pull up onto a block. Grab the ceiling and monkey swing to the end. Drop onto the block and pick up the door key (Venkonvi klic). Stand jump to the column in the middle of the lava floor. Run and jump the columns against the wall. Run and jump back to the entrance platform. Stand jump up the slope and run through the room with the rolling blades again. Return to the room with the steps. Be careful in this room. You can jump onto the lamps and catch fire.
Go to the far left corner and use the door key in the key lock to open the doors in that wall. Enter the doors and shoot two tigers. Go to the far corner of the room and save the game. Slide down the slope onto breakable tiles. Run forward and onto another slope. You slide down into a corridor and hear rumbling. Back flip onto the entrance slope to avoid two rolling rocks from the upper left. Slide down back into the corridor. Go to the right corner and drop into a hole. Follow the tunnel to an open area and shoot two tigers.
You are in a large area with a water pool in the middle. Notice a closed door in the pool. Dive into the pool and pick up a large medipack, shotgun and shotgun shells from a corner. Surface for air and dive into the pool again. Swim into the underwater tunnel. Take the first branch tunnel and swim right, right, left, and left again. Swim forward to where you can see a circle design on the floor in the corner. Pick up the gate key (Klic od haly) from the floor. Swim back to the pool to surface for air. The other underwater branch tunnels contain no items. Pull up out of the pool.
Face the underwater door in the pool. In the far right green wall corner is a moveable block. Move that block on a fancy design tile close to it and near the pool. You get a cut scene of an open door. Now move the block back into the corner. Move the block to the left as far as possible up to a wall ledge. At the opposite end of the wall ledge is another moveable block. Move that block onto the first moveable block. Get onto the second block and pull up onto a higher ledge. Jump the ledges around the room and pull up onto a higher block. Jump up to grab the monkey swing.
First monkey swing to the open door. Enter the alcove and pick up a small medipack, Uzi's and Uzi ammo for secret #3. Then monkey swing to the other ledge. Pull down the wall switch. Run and jump and land into the pool. Swim through the open underwater door. Swim through the underwater tunnel and pull up into a large room. Shoot the green poisonous lizard. In one attempt, I fell back into the water. The lizard also fell into the water and died. But while you are in the water hole, the poison gas cannot get you.
Go to the far right corner of the room. Back flip onto a slope and jump forward to grab a ledge. Pull up and follow the ledge to the end. Run and jump onto a ledge at the back wall. Slide down a slope and go forward. Fire emitters start from the side slopes. Carefully go through the fire emitters. Stand on a section where two tiles meet on the floor. That part is safe from the fire. The center of the tile is deadly. At the end slide down a slope and drop into a room.
Save the game in front of a wall switch. Pull down the wall switch, roll, and run down the room. Go into an alcove on the right to avoid a moving spike wall. When the wall passes, push the moveable block from the corner under a hole in the ceiling. Hop onto the block and jump up to grab the gray climbable wall. Pull up into a tunnel where you started. Get through the fire emitters again. Stand jump up the slope. Safety drop into the room below.
Enter the open gate in the wall. Use the gate key to open the next gate. Shoot the four green poisonous lizards. Use a medipack to stop the poison if the poison gas hits you. Go to the middle of the room and pick up the bronze key (Zlaty klic) from the platform. Go to the corner od thw room with the circle symbol on the wall. Pull down the wall switch and exit the room. The door is open at the top of the steps. Enter the alcove to pick up a blue key (Klic ven) and the Amulet from the floor. Pull down the wall switch. Return to the previous room and shoot two tigers. Enter either open gate at the side wall. Climb the back wall and pull up onto a ledge.
Carefully get around the swinging blades and pick up a small medipack. Then get through the crushers. There are safe tiles between the crushers. There are two climbable walls in the corner alcove. Climb the shorter wall and pull up onto a ledge. Pick up a small medipack from the floor. Get thorough the swinging blades and crushers. Loop around the corner to the right and get through more crushers. Pull down the wall switch and get a cut scene of a gate opening. Return through the crushers to the wall ladders. Climb the long wall ladder. Pull up at the top and follow the path around the cage to the open gate. Drop down into the corridor below where you started earlier. Return to the room with the steps.
Go to the far left corner and use the bronze key in the key lock to open the doors in that wall. Enter the open doors into a small room with moveable blocks. First move the block on the floor from the corner to the side of the ledge so that the block on the ledge can be moved to the edge of the gap in the ledge. Move the block on the floor to close the gap and complete the path of the ledge. Move the block on the ledge from its location to the other end of the completed ledge. Move the block on the floor from the gap into the corner with the circle symbol. Move the block on the ledge onto that corner block. Hop onto the block and pull up into the room above.
Exit the room in the corner. Follow the short path to a room with a pool surrounded by a fence. In the pool is a closed gate. At the back wall is a closed gate behind a fence. Back flip onto a slope near the room entrance. Jump forward to grab a column and pull up. Grab the ceiling and monkey swing to the next column. Run and jump the next two columns to reach a wall switch in the corner. Pull down the wall switch and get a cut scene of the underwater gate opening. Get down to the ground and dive into the pool. Swim tough the underwater tunnel and pull up at the end. You are behind the fence. Use the blue key in the key lock to open the gate. Enter the gate and go forward to an open area. Start to slide down the slope and the level ends.
[Note] In my case, at the end, the title blue screen appeared and flickered every few seconds. After about a minute, the statistics box appeared. Hit the RETURN/ENTER key to get the normal menu to exit the game. But the writing was missing. [End note]
