Walkthrough by Harry Laudie
You slide into a room and see three closed doors. Dive into the water and pick up the Pharos Knot. Shoot the box in south-west corner for flares. Shoot the box in the south-east corner for a small medipack. Go west and use the Pharos Knot to open the large doors. Enter a room onto a platform over a deep pool. To the upper west wall are three alcoves with closed doors. Above you is a monkey swing. Monkey swing to the south-west alcove, release and grab the ledge. Do not pull up but shimmy to the left and onto the wall. When you are in the climbing position, climb to the top and shimmy to the right edge. Pull up, back flip, and roll to jump with a left curve. You should land on the platform above the monkey swing. Jump the slope and go to the upper south-west corner for secret #1 and pick up red shotgun shells and blue shotgun shells. Drop into the water and surface to climb the ladder to the platform.
Monkey swing to the south-west alcove, release and grab the ledge. Pull up into the alcove and the doors open. Slide and jump over a spike pit to grab a ladder. Climb up, slide, jump over a spike pit and grab another ladder. Pull up into a crawl space. On the other side, climb down a ladder a little ways. Back flip, roll, and grab the ladder on the west wall. There is a spike pit at the bottom. Climb to the top and shimmy to the left. Run and jump to the south to pull a jump switch and drop into some water. You get a long flyby showing you another set of doors opening. The ladder beside you is just in case you miss the switch. Swim through the underwater tunnel and back to where you started. Just before you swim through the door, swim to the right tunnel for flares. Swim to the deep pool room and look on the floor in front of you as you exit the tunnel. Pick up two red shotgun shells, blue shotgun shells, shotgun and a small medipack. Surface and climb the ladder to the platform.
Monkey swing to the north-west alcove, release and grab the ledge. Pull up into the alcove and go down the steps. Jump over the fire to a safe tile in the north-west corner and then jump into an east opening. Get into the crawl space and follow the triangular shaped space to a ladder. Climb up and near the top, back flip and roll, to grab a jump switch. Return and the fire is out on the floor. Climb the ladder at the south wall and back flip to a ledge. Use a reach-in switch and get a cut scene of the middle alcove doors opening. Return to the deep pool room and drop into the water. Surface and climb the ladder to the platform.
Monkey swing to the middle west alcove, release and grab the ledge. Pull up into the alcove and follow the corridor. At the end, the doors open for you. Enter the room and kill two harpies. Run north to the sarcophagus and get a cut scene of two closed doors back in the starting room. Search the sarcophagus for red shotgun shells and the Ornate Handle. Return to the deep pool room and safety drop to the ledge below. Climb the ladder and return to the starting room.
The east door is open so go there. Run into the room and see beetles coming towards you. Go east and jump on the platform. Use the side blocks to pull two jump switches on the north and south walls. A flare helps to see them. The block on the platforms drops. Go there and pick up the Hathor Effigy and the beetles also stop. Exit the room and make the Portal Guardian. Use it to the open the large doors in the north wall.
Enter the north corridor and the doors close behind. The large doors to the north open as you approach them. Enter the room and kill two demigods. Climb the west side of the blocks behind the throne. The golden Lara is on the east side of the blocks. As you stand up, there is a flyby of the two Laras behind the throne and the level ends.
