LEVELS BY Marion Hundertmark (Commari)
WALKTHROUGH BY Anya Marie McDonald
NOTE: I have not mentioned any pickups except the crowbar and keys, nor have I mentioned the secrets in these levels, they are for the players to seek out if they so choose. Also, you can play either the Lab or the Starbase first, it does not matter because when you finish one level you go to the other level. I am not sure if the author intended for this to happen, but it does; well, at least with me it did. So enjoy these levels, for they are very good in both design and graphically.
The level starts with Lara on a raised block with a swirling light around her. Step off the block backwards and press the button on the back of the block you were on. Next head into and through the next room and into the passage beyond and into the cavern. When you enter the cavern a small green creature attacks so deal with it, then head deeper into the cavern. You will come to a closed gate on a natural bridge. Go left to the closed gate in the corner, face the gate, then jumpback/hang/drop/grab the ledge below. Pull up and use the button on the wall in front of you, this opens the gate on the natural bridge. Now go into the crawlspace to your left, and when you are able to stand face right and pull up then head to the gate which will open as you near it.
You are now back on the same level and the natural bridge, so head over there and through the open gate. As soon as you go through the gate a flying green bug attacks, so take it out, then head into the opening before you, but run back out in a hurry to avoid the boulder rolling down towards you. Head back into the passage to the end. There is a closed gate and no way to open it, so head back a liitle to the natural bridge room, but look up and see an opening. Pull up into the room above you and get the crowbar, then head back to the natural bridge room and cross it to the cavern there. When you reach the cavern look to your left and see a crawlspace, head there and go through.
When you can stand pull up and continue on down this passage. Shortly you will reach a place where you can go left or right, go left, through the crawlspace and use the button on the wall and watch a cut scene of a gate opening up. Now head back to where you saw the closed gate across the natural bridge, then go up into the sloping passage to the room beyond. There is some toxic green liquid in this room, there is a safe spot below that you can get to. Next run/jump/grab the ladder on the sloping block and shimmy around the corner to the right. Now backflip/twist/grab the ladder behind you and climb up onto the block.
When you get to the top, take out the binoculars and look over in the northwest corner and see the star on the wall, that is where you are headed. So, run/jump to the block to your right, then jump to the next block. Next run/jump/grab/pull up onto the next block, take out the green flying bug, then go over to where the star is and get it. Once the star is safely in Lara's possession, jump back to the previous block.
Now you can do this one of two ways:
1) Turn right and run/jump/grab/pullup/slide/jump/grab/pull up to the neaxt block. This way is tough, but it can be done.
2) Jump all the way back to the block you spotted the star from, then run/jump to the safe spot and climb the ladder.
No matter which way you go you have to run/jump/grab/pull up into the passage across from you. Now head down this passage til you come to a room with a water hole in the far corner to your right and a passage to your left. Well, let's take a dip in the water, shall we, so jump in the water and swim til you can surface and exit the water.
You are now in a room with gray and brown tiles on the floor, now use your binoculars and zoom into the next room and spy the gem waiting there for you, so head there. As you get to the opening into the next room you are confronted with a pool of toxic liquid with sloping ledges on either side, so jump back and forth on the ledges til you reach the other end. When you finally make it to the other side, go through the opening and into the next room. After taking out the humanoid that attacks, grab the gem, push the button to the right of the door, watch the cut scene of a gate opeing up somewhere, now leave this place, back to the room beyond the toxic pool.
Now jump back into the water and swim back to the previous room. Next head into the opeing and the passage beyond and turn right through the open gate. Now head to your left in this passage, take care of the humanoid that attacks and continue on til you come to another button on the wall. Push the button and watch another cut scene of a gate opening up, now go back around the corner and take the next left, then face the right wall. Now jump/grab/pullup into the crawlspace and go into the next room and get the second star.
Now head back to the passage where you were before you entered this area. When you exit this area, go past the opening to your left and continue on down this passage til you come to the next room. As you enter the room you are attacked by a little green creature, so deal with it, then go to your right and up into the next room. There is a closed door at the other end of this room with receptacles for the stars on either side, so go and place the stars there.
Next go through the open door into the next room, go up the stairs to the right and then through the second door to your right. You are now in the library. Head to the third bookshelf and climb on top and get the gem resting there, now head back out to the entrance to the library and back down the stairs, go behind the stair well and into the alcove under the stairs and use the button on the wall to open an iron gate somewhere.
Now head back up the stairs and head to turn left over to the balcony, turn right and jump over the railing and get the gem on the ledge. Next climb down the ladder and jump into the water below and swim to the southwest corner of this pond, through a underwater tunnel and get the gem there. Now swim back out, surface and exit the water on the ledge where there is a column with receptacles for the four gems you have found.
Jump back into the water and in the east wall across from the column you placed the gems is an underwater tunnel, go and swim through it and the level ends and you enter the lab.
As you exit the underwater tunnel avoid the hammerhead shark that is in the tank you swam into, surface and exit the water. Now make your way to the door on the south wall. The door opens as you near it, go into the next room and turn right and drop down to the next passage below. You are now at an intersection, so head to the ladder before you and climb up to the next room, turn right and enter the next room, take out the creature in the red liquid then jump in and get the security key from the bottom. Surface and exit the red liquid, then head back down to the intersection.
Now head to your left down the passage til you come to a room with caged creatures in them. Take out the guard that comes from around the corner across the room, then head over to where he was and head to the right over to the block and take out another guard. Go around the block to the left and use the security key to open the door there. Go through the now open door and into the next room, which is filled with more of the toxic green liquid.
Now head to your right and run/jump/grab the block and shimmy to left and drop on the block below, next run/jump/grab the next block and shimmy to the left to the other side, then backflip to the ledge behind you. Turn around, head down the passage to the next room and take care of the guard. Next turn left, head down the passage to the next room and shoot out the grate as you enter this room. Go down through where the grate used to be and then through the crawlspace.
Once you are able to stand climb the ladder to the next passage and head to the next room.
After you enter the next room drop down to the room below, take out the guard and get the security key he drops, now head back up to the previous room. Next use the security key to open the door in this room, go through, take out the guard and get the high security key he drops. Now head back to the room where you shot the grate out, go through the door to your right into the next room. Do not step on the grated floor in this room or Lara will burn and die, instead use the safe ledge to your left to get to the gate you need to use the high security key to open.
As soon as you use the key and the gate opens, take out the two little dark green creatures. Head through the open gate, turn left and use the button on the column, after a cut scene of a door opening. Now head back to the passage beyond the room with the green toxic liquid, turn left and go through the open door. In the next room use the button on the northeast side of the column and watch the cut scene of a gate opening somewhere.
Leave this room and head back to the cage room. Once you get to the cage room, head past the cages, turn left and go through the open gate. You are now in a cavern, as you go towards the green toxic liquid, deal with the three little green dinos to your left. Now head over to where they were and go through the crawlspace to the next room.
When you can stand, head to the alcove in the southeast corner of the room and use the button on the wall, watch a cut scene of a grated trapdoor opening. Leave this room and head back to the cavern, head to your left to a block under a monkeyswing. Use the monkeyswing to reach the other side of the green toxic liquid, once there head through the opening into the next room and take out the green creature that attacks, take note of the closed gold gate to your right.
Now head to the northeast corner of the room and up into the passage above, then through the crawlspace and use the button on the wall. Head back down to the room below and through the now opened gold gate.
As you go through the open gold gate, jump over the the gray structure. Face left and get as close to the left wall as possible. Now backflip/slide/grab the edge of the sloping wall, then shimmy to your right til you can pull up onto a flat ledge. Turn around and jump over to the ledge across from you and use the buttons on the wall. Then jump back to the gray structure, head to the right and go around to the other side and use the buttons across from it. Next go back to the gray structure and head to your left to the end of the structure. Once there backflip to the opening and go into the next room.
In this room is a figure of an alien on a block atop a ramp. Head there and use the buttons on either side of it on the wall. Once each button is pressed a cut scene of a gate is shown, with the gate opening after the second button is pressed. Now head back to the cage room and go to the open gate across from where you enter the cage room.
Go through the open gate into the passage to the next room, another cavern. Now head to the train tracks, turn left and follow the tracks to the next room. In this room deal with the flying green bug and continue on down the tracks. About halfway through the tunnel on the left is a grate you can shoot to gain access to the next room. Crawl through the crawlspace into the next roon and deal with the guard, then use the two buttons in this room.
Now exit this room back to the train tracks and continue on to the next room. In this room find a way to safety drop down to the area below the train tracks and head to the crawlspace in the southeast corner of the area. Go through the crawlspace til you can stand and climb the ladder. At the top of the ladder is another crawlspace with a shootable grate at the other end. Shoot the grate and enter the next room.
Once you enter the next room and are able to stand, head right towards the closed lock door, but turn right again and go through the door there that opens as you near it. After you take out the two guards, climb up on the block to your left and up into the little room above you. Grab the security key and exit back to the main passage. In the main passage turn left and use the security key to open the door. Go through the door into the next room, shoot the guard and go press the button in the southwest corner of the room.
Now head back to the room where you took out the two guards and go through the next open door. Beyond the door in the passage are security lasers, so time each laser and pass each one til you are safe. Once you are safely past the lasers shoot the guard and pick up the high security key he drops. Then press the button on the wall, watch a cut scene of another button that is now accessible to Lara.
Leave this room and head back to the main passage. Turn left when you reach the main passage and head to the closed locked door at the other end of the passage.
Use the high security key to open the door, now go through the open door into the next room. Take out the guard to the left and then head to where he was and jump/grab/pullup to the next passage. Follow this passage to the next room. In this room is the button you saw in the last cut scene, so press it to cause an earthquake. Now head to the open door to your left and into the passage, follow the passage til you drop down onto more train tracks. Next head to the opening to your left and the level ends and you are back at the starbase.
