Natla's Mines

Lara begins this level underwater and stripped of all weapons. Swim for the waterfall and surface behind it. Go down the tunnel and use the switch on the left to open a door. Go back to the falls and dive in and swim to the other side. Climb out and enter the tunnel to the right of the crate. Find the block and pull it out of the mound then enter the passage it was blocking. Use the switch to open a second door then return to the water and the boat.

Swim back to the falls and go down that passage again. Climb to the sloped passage and follow it until you can jump to a ledge with a barricade it. Follow the tunnel to a room with a large glass structure. Get the medkit then enter the next room with the two condemned houses. Find and pull the block out twice towards some tires then hop ontop and jump to the roof of the house. You'll fall through and end up inside where you can go down a tunnel and use a switch to make the boat return to the dock.

Go to the end of the tunnel and slide down grabbing the right ledge and dropping to the ground. Follow the tracks to the wood door which opens for you. Now comes the TRICKY PART! Do this exactly!

- Walk towards the first barricade until the boulder begins to roll.
- Jump the first barricade then do a series of running jumps to get over the other 3.
- As you jump the 3rd barricade turn to the right in mid-air to land on a hill and enter the passage before the boulder flattens you.

If you were successful then Indiana Jones would be proud, otherwise you will need to return to the first barricade and try again.

Inside the tunnel get the fuse. Head up until another boulder starts rollings then run back and to the left. Go up the hill on the left as another boulder rolls by. Drop into the hole at the top to reenter the room with 2 boulders. Climb the hill to get back to those two houses and make your way back to the water with the boat. Swim over and climb into the boat then leap over to the crates. Climb up the left crate and find the tunnel behind it. Inside are lots of NATLA boxes and some magnum ammo. One of the boxes is a "movable block". Pull it once then push it left. Now pull the box behind it out twice and pull it right to gain access to a passage with another switch. Use it to activate the giant drill machine.

Return to the docs and go to the tunnel to the right of the crates. Follow it until you reach the drill machine and enter the tunnel that the drill machine HAD been blocking. Find and push a block forward until you can enter the next room. Get on the block and then climb up through a hole to find another switch that opens another door. Grab some ammo for your Uzi (in case you get it back) then drop back down. Go forward and into the next room and get another fuse then return to the docks and make your way back to those two houses. Go into the tunnel by the house on the left and follow it to the fork where you can go left and use the switch to start the conveyor belt. Go back to the fork and find the 3rd fuse then return to the room with the glass structure and enter it from the right.

Get some magnum ammo and then use the 3 fuses in the slots to gain access to a new house. Enter the house and get the pistols before climbing to the roof and jumping into the tunnel. Just inside is a hole which you can jump to and climb up. A gate will open leading to a deadly trap. The obvious trap door below will plunge you into hot lava if you stand on it so instead - slide down the slope backwards and grab the edge as you fall. Climb back up and the door will shut and stay shut from now on. Cross and get
SECRET #1 - medikit and Uzi clips then use the switch to open the gate and return to the first tunnel.

Go to the end of the tunnel and do a safety drop then swim to the docks. Exit the water and enter the tunnel with the drill machine. Go around the NATLA box and into the next tunnel where you find your magnums. Too bad some guy is using them to blast you. Kill him as quickly as possible and try not to fall in the lava tubes. If he runs then chase him. Once he is dead take your hard earned magnums back and heal yourself.

Leap towards the switch on the far wall. You just miss the ledge but you can grab the ledge below taking a good amount of damage. Slide down the hill and grab the bottom edge. Let go and grab again to grip the crevice just below and shimmy to the ledge on your right. Run through the tunnel to the intersection, enter the lava room on the right and jump to the ledge on the left. Now begin a series of tricky (and deadly) jumps from pillar to pillar until you can jump into the tunnel on the right wall.

Go forward and push the block quickly to avoid the boulder rumbling towards you. Once that's over you can pull the block back and jump into the roof from it to access
SECRET #2 - Uzi clips and a medkit. Run down the tunnel in the corner and drop to some more tracks. Take the medkit and the Uzi clips and grab the Shotgun (if you really think you'll need it). Go back to the previous room and drop down the hole behind the boulder then leap to the pillar in the lava tunnel. Turn right and do a series of jumps across three pillars then drop and enter the tunnel below. Slide to the bottom of the slope then jump to the ledge. Climb up and enter the room with the TNT. Fine the one that's not like the others. Pull it into the next room - out once - right once - then 3 pulls into the next room. Now jump (or climb) over it and push it 3 times until you can get on it and jump into the tunnel.

Go to the top and climb to the ledge then do a leap to the ledge on the right. Wait for the tunnel to spit out another boulder then leap into it and follow it to the switch. Get the magnum clips and use the switch to create a cave-in in the TNT room. Now return to the room with the TNT box. Go to the new hole on the left and enter the passage. This next room has your Uzi's but once again - they are being used for EVIL. Some punk-ass kid on a skateboard is taking cheap shots at you. He's fast but he doesn't attack often so waste him with your magnums and take back your Uzi's. You should now have ALL your weapons back!! Scattered about this room are 3 Uzi clips so retrieve them then start checking out the holes

One of the holes has water instead of lava. Dive in and swim through the gate to get
SECRET #3 - variety of medkits and Uzi clips. Make your way back to the skateboard park then go all the way up the hill. Follow the tunnel into the next room and start up the slope. Of course 3 boulders make this harder than it needed to be. Each boulder has its own section of the slope so stay in the middle. When the first one comes at ya jump left. When #2 starts rolling jump right then back to the middle when #3 starts to roll. Stop at the top and wait for a forth boulder to spit out the door.

Enter the passage and go up the slope and climb up to the next room. Get on the low pillar and jump to the higher one then jump to the ledge. Do another jump to the left then another jump to the left then climb into the room on the right. Push the block (block A) twice and climb up into the next room then push the block in there twice and drop down into the lower room that should be to your right. Pull the block. Then go back up and go back to the first block you pushed (block A). Push it forward to reveal a switch. Use it to open a yet unseen door. Turn left at the switch and enter the alcove straight ahead. Go left and climb then move forward to the block and enter the passage at the left. Push the block at the bottom of the stairs once then turn left and make a mad dash for the door which closes before you get there!

Use the switch next to the door then head back upstairs, past the gold door and drop through the hole. Run through the doors and ready your favorite weapon for another shootout. He's packing a shotgun so keep your distance. I recommend magnums at 30 paces and dance like crazy! When he's just a red spot on the floor relieve him of his shotgun and then proceed to climb to the ledge above the door into the pyramid.

Jump from ledge to ledge all the way up this sucker. At the top jump to the left wall and slide down the pyramid and find the tunnel. Enter and use the switch to open the door then exit and slide to the bottom. Go back to the maze and enter the Gold Door to get a medkit and the keys to the Pyramid. Now go to the Pyramid and use the Pyarmid key to enter the pyramid and EXIT this level.
