Start this level by going
right and climbing the wall. Go to the end and kill the 2
lions lurking about. Go to the right of the columns and
there will be a movable block with an Omega symbol
(horseshoe) under it. Pushing the block forward onto the
first Omega symbol will open a door above and behind you
Pushing the block onto the second Omega sybmol will open the
door at the end of the room. Push the block forward a couple
of times to open the door at the end of the room then push
the block one more time forward so you can climb on it
Go through the door and kill the 2 gorillas and pull the
switch across from the door. Go to the stairs on the right
and kill another gorilla. Continue up the stairs and throw
the switch to open another door. Go outside and shoot the
other explorer waiting for you in the pillars. Dodge a lot
and run in circles to shoot him from behind - like the T-Rex
and Larson. He will run away after eating enough lead. Let
him go! You can't kill him anyway - believe me - I
Refer to the picture below for the following stuff.
Back in the main room make sure the block is over the spot
where the A is on the map above. Get onto the block. Walk to
the edge of the block facing column #7. If you hold down the
walk key and go forward, Lara will walk to the very edge of
the block without falling off. Now press and hold the jump
button and almost immediately press and hold the up arrow.
Still holding those 2 keys down almost immediately press the
action key so Lara will grab on. Hold all 3 keys down until
Lara is on top of the column. You can actually let go of the
action and jump keys when she is climbing up. Jump across to
Column #3 to get the medikit. Turn around and jump back to
Column #7 then turn right and jump to Column #6. Jump from
Column #6 to the ledge and into the doorway. Now comes the
Stand on the far left of the doorway ontop of the arrows.
Jump left then jump right and up grabbing the ledge.
Standing on the ledge, face the smaller of the two sloped
ledges and backup. Jump onto the lower slope then backward
then forward and grab the ledge above you. Very tricky but
it takes you to SECRET #1 - shotgun shells and a medkit. Climb back down
to avoid damage taken by falling through broken floor.
Back in the main room hop back to Column #6 then to Column
#7 and finally back to Column #3 where you got the medkit.
Do a long jump to the ledge in front of you then turn left
and begin a series of jumps to reach the door (the one you
unlocked from the floor).
Go down the hall making sure you are sliding forward! Just
before you reach the end of the sloped passage jump into the
air. You'll land on a small ledge below. Jump across to the
door and grab it. If you miss you cannot try without
resetting the level. Get SECRET #2 - shells and medkit then turn around and check
out that big croc in the water. You can kill him if you want
but it takes a long time. You can just as easily avoid
Jump in and swim forward and up into the first opening to
#3 - more shotgun
shells. Take another swim and go to the next opening where
you can pull the switch and drain the water from this
passage. Drop into the passage and kill the croc (if you
didn't already). He's easier to shoot now but he's also a
lot faster so dodge him quickly!
Go to the end of the tunnel. Jump to the ledge in the middle
of the room and shoot the 3 bats flying around. Drop down to
a ledge on your right then once more to the floor below.
Pull the lever to open the THOR DOOR. Jump to your right and
land on the gray square to open a secret door. This door is
timed so you have to be FAST!
Turn right and go the the edge. Roll as you land and keep
running. Roll at the edge and drop down shooting the 2 bats
as they appear. Drop down once more, taking some minor
damage, and enter the secret door. SECRET #4 consists of medkit and magnum clips. Exit the
room then use the switch to open the ATLAS DOOR.
Climb the stairs then jump and grab the ledge. Jump to the
ledge and get the magnum clips either before or after
killing the bat. Jump back to the first ledge and move
across about half way. Jump and grab the middle ledge then
go around the left corner and use the switch to open the
Do a REVERSE and jump across to the stairs. Turn around and
jump up to the ledge above. Enter the THOR DOOR to your
left. Inside is a cool plasma sphere shooting electric bolts
to the floor. A pattern of blocks is laid out in a circular
pattern. If you are in this circle when the bolts hit - you
get zapped! Time the bolts and make your way across this
The next room has a large hammer suspended from the ceiling
and some markings on the floor. Stand on the symbol. When
you hear something break jump back and the hammer will smack
the floor. Don't move! Wait for a couple of blocks to fall
to the floor. Push the block a few times against the wall
near the head part of Thor's hammer. Use it to climb up to
the ledge where you can pull the second block out a few
times then use it to climb and jump over to an even higher
Get the small medkit then jump across to the ledge on your
left. Enter the small room and get the THOR KEY then jump
back and climb down. Run through the electric room and make
your way back and exit the THOR DOOR.
Go left and at the edge turn left and jump to a half ledge.
Your friend from earlier is shooting at you so hop to a
small stair on your right and kill the 2 bats that are
attacking. Turn and jump to the middle ledge then go up the
stairs to find a lever which opens the DAMOCLES DOOR. Climb
the stair and enter the ATLAS DOOR.
Kill the gorilla waiting for you in here then run ahead and
through the gate. A medkit is in the pit to your left. Run
up the hill until a huge boulder comes rumbling towards you.
Do a REVERSE and run away. As you near the pit do another
REVERSE and drop back and grab the edge of the pit. The
boulder will sail harmlessly overhead. Start back up the
hill and about half way jump to the ledge on your left. Jump
up again and get the ATLAS KEY on the other side of the
ledge. Make your way back and exit the ATLAS DOOR.
Go to the highest step and jump up and climb to the next
level. Jump to the stairs on your left. Shoot some bats and
go to the highest step. Jump to the middle ledge and go to
the other side and enter the NEPTUNE DOOR. Go for a swim.
The current will move you along but you need to swim up and
to you left to enter a small tunnel. Pull the lever at the
end of this tunnel then return to the main tunnel. Swim
forward and get the NEPTUNE KEY. Go to the other side of the
passage and surface quickly as you are probably almost out
of air by now.
Climb out of the water and exit through the NEPTUNE DOOR.
Jump to the middle ledge and climb down to the ledge across
from the sandstone stairs. Jump over to the stairs and go
down the the DAMOCLES DOOR. Get the medkit ontop of the door
before you enter.
Don't worry about those swords hanging from the ceiling. Go
to the next room and get the DAMOCLES KEY then hoist
yourself up and get the shells and medkit on the ledge
above. Leave this room slowly. The swords will start falling
- just watch the shadows and listen for them to fall. If you
walk you will be able to stop just short of the sword. Exit
the DAMOCLES DOOR drop down onto the small ledge and once
more to the ground where you can start shooting at the 2
cougars and that hostile explorer who's been after you.
The cougars will die and the explorer will run away again.
Go to the door and use the 4 keys you've been collecting in
each of the locks. The bars will be removed and you can EXIT
this huge level. WHEW!
