LEVEL BY Titak
WALKTHROUGH BY Anya Marie McDonald
NOTE: I will not mention any secrets or pickups (unless they are keys, puzzle pieces, or other items you need to perform a task.
The level starts off with Lara sliding down a sloping passage. When you reach the bottom of the slope go around the corner to your left and slide down another sloping passage. At the end of the slope, head across the bridge and either avoid or deal with the two skeletons that rise up from the ground to attack Lara. Either way, head to the other side of the bridge, stop before you enter the big opening with the steps leading down, turn left. Now run/jump/grab/pullup on the ledge there, then head to the climbable column, then climb down the column. But, before going to the opening on the right, head to the left. Now run/jump/grab/pullup onto the ledge across from you, then drop down to the next ledge. Now turn left, then run/jump the next ledge, now drop/hang/shimmy to the left til you can pullup. Head to the pedestal beyond the skeleton lying on the floor (which comes alive as you near it, so deal with it). Of course, if you don't want to be bothered with the skeleton, drop/hang/shimmy to the left til you can shimmy no more. Then pull up, get the lasersight, then backflip over the skeleton, then drop/hang/shimmy to the right til you can drop to the ledge below. (Remember some people need more beauty rest than others.)
Now head back to the ledge with the climbable column, go around it and go through the opening on the left. Once you are on the ledge below, go through the opening on the left to the next passage and take another left. In the alcove use the floor lever to open the door in the other alcove. Go through the door and take another left through the arched opening, then through the next arched opening. Next, drop down through the opening in the floor, then the next opeing in the floor and fall into a pool of water. Sruface, exit the water and go through the opening on the west wall, get the portal guardian and watch the cut scene of a door opening somewhere. Now head back to the water to get rid of the two wraiths that will emerge as soon as Lara has the portal guardian in her possession.
Once they have been destroyed with the statue at the bottom of the pool, surface, exit the water and go through the opening on the east wall. Now there are two ways to get to the opening at the top of the two ramps; 1) pick a ramp to go up and avoid a big blue ball that will come rolling down to crush Lara, 2) pick a ramp and hang from the edge of it and shimmy all the way to the top, avoiding even triggering the big blue ball(after all, some traps should be left for the next guy). Either way, once you are at the top of the ramps head through the opening and into the pool, swim to the left then swim right.
Next, look for a small opening on the left and swim into it. Now take the left underwater passage and swim til you can surface, exit the water and use a floor lever to open a door somewhere. Get back into the water and swim to the main passage. Once there, use the slightly raised block under the water to get to the open door. Head through the door and into the passage, follow the passage til you come to a crawlspace in the upper part of the right wall. After you get through the crawlspace to the next room, avoid or deal with the skeleton that rises up from the ground. Next, go into the water in the next room and get the gem from the sloping ledge, watch the cut scene of another door opening, then leave this place and head back to the main water passage and head to your left.
Now go through the opening to your right, use the monkeyswing to get across the spike pit, then head to the left once you are across. Next jump across a pit to the ledge, then jump up into the opening to your right. Now go into the next room and follow the passage to your left til you come to the room you started the levels in. You are below the bridge on a ledge where two skeletons rise up from the ground to kill Lara, so deal with them then place the gem in the receptacle next to the closed door.
Head through the door and down the stairs til you come to the next room. There is a pool of water to your left and broken steps to your right. Head down the steps to the next room, veer off to the right, avoid or deal with the two skeletons, then head through the opening and up the steps to the next room. In the next room, head to the right, either avoid or deal with the skeletons and go through the opening and up the steps to the next room. Avoid or deal with the skeleton and continue on to the next room. Jump into one of the pools of water, swim through the small underwater passage and get the crowbar off the floor.
Now return to the room below and into that pool and swim through the underwater tunnel. When you surface and exit the water, use the pole to your left to get to the next room. Once you are in the room above you turn around and run/jump/grab the rope hanging from the ceiling. Swing over to the ledge and use the crowbar to get the star off the wall, then watch the cut scene. Now either use the rope or drop down and head back to the room with the two pools where you got the crowbar and climb the block you saw in the cut scene. Next, climb up to the ledge and use the button tile at the end of the ledge on the right.
Now jump down and head back to the main pool room and go through the underwater tunnel, surface, exit the water, kneel down by the statue and wait for the wraiths to vanish. Once they are gone, head back and climb the block to the ledge again. Now run/jump through the open door turn right and head to the opening to the next room. As you look into the next room you realize that this is the room you started the level in, only it is about one-third flooded.
Dive into the water and swim to the opening on the left, exit the water and head up the steps to the next room. Go through the two arched openings to the next room, then head through the next opening, turn right and then right again into the water. Swim through the underwater passage, then surface and exit the water by the slanting sandbar with the ladder. Climb the ladder to the next room and use the portal guardian, watch the cut scene. Now head back through the underwater passage, surface, exit the water, turn left then right into the room you saw in the cut scene and watch as the floor rises.
Climb up to the next room, head past the vases on the left and the opening on the right into the passage ahead of you. When you come to a pole, climb it to the next room. In this room use the crowbar to get the star off the wall, deal with or avoid the skeleton. Now head back down the pole and go to where the vases are. Next, head through the opening to your left into the next room, then through the opening to your left. Drop down to the next passage and into the next room. In this room there is an off color tile, a moveable column in the right hand corner; however, the floor is riddled with waterholes. Ok, the object is to get the column over to the off color tile (I will leave it up to the individual players of this level to figure this out); once the column is on the off color tile, head back to the main room and through the opening across from the one you emerged from. Follow this passage to the next room, taking note of the off colored tile ahead of you and the closed door on your right, so head left around the corner.
Now move the column from around the corner to the off colored tile around the corner next to the closed door. Once the column is on the off colored tile the door opens, so head through the door and up the steps back to the bridge where you started the level.
Back on the bridge, turn left and face the ledge with the two receptacles for the stars you've collected and a skeleton patrolling the ledge. Run/jump/grab/pullup onto the ledge, deal with the skeleton and use the stars to open the door. Go through the door into the room, then around the corner to the left and up the sloping passage to end the level.
FINAL NOTE: This is a good level and a great start to a larger adventure. I hope that the author of this level will add other levels to this one to make this a grander adventure. But, only time will tell.
