ARABIAN NIGHTS, by SILMARILS WALKTHROUGH - only; I wont tell about getting
coins and other items unless they are required for gameplay advance. And
I'll tell the only necessary.
For better gameplay, I recommend you guys get ahold of a little program
which search RAM for values and modifies them (memoryfinder). this is
extremely valuable for this game (and also for a lot of others).
an example of it is SEAL 2; (http://sealsystem.sourceforge.net/)
If you do not find it on the net, email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) asking for
You probably wont have any problems on doing the first level:
Just dont forget to hit the tomb just straight ahead from where you start to
get the fire spell.
I dont know what's up with the owl; if somebody does, please email me.
Going left through the door, after you fight with the lady, the level
continues through the big window on the left, which is reached by jumping,
at the end of the corridor where you meet the lady you just killed.
Once In, go to the other room to the left and push the water-bowl-pillar
until it blocks the door to the left, and BEFORE the swordswoman breaks through
Now, Search the previous room for a key (push a pillar just like the one you
did) and open the boxes. To go foward, push the arms of the two big statues.
Do not take long to go up the stairs.
Next, you find yourself in a kind'a maze. The key is near one of the
faucets, near one of the corners. Do not drink the orange, yellow, black,
green or blue fountains.
Then go through the locked door. Now you find yourself in an open area. Look
for a "vegetal" ladder (looks like a lot of leaves going up) in one of the
walls of the rightmost building. Climb it. Then go through the wires;
Dont forget to push the block (in the final building) to uncover the hole
you should fall into.
Watch out for the cloaked enemies. Their spit is poisonous.
OK, go left; on the dead-end, push the wall just to the right of the sarcophage
straight from where you came; get the Architet's note; read it; kill the guys and
take note of the 4 symbols in the thingies the guy was cleaning; get ahold of the
TOMB KEY, too; now, there are two ways:
Watch it. Do not get hit by the fan. the sequence is from DARK to
The sarcophages to be opened are the rightmost of the RIGHT wall, and the
rightmost of the left wall; close them;
go to the other side (climb it, watch for the arrows);
rightmost of the LEFT wall and from the FRONT wall are the tombs you should
open. Go back to the bong room (center room). put the gems on their receptacles in
the center room; get your ring; now, jump back and go to the start of the stage;
go the other way(the one you didnt come - duh!)
keep going until you see a sarcophage with a chain above it near a illusion
fountain; now that you got the "tomb key", open it, climb it and climb the chain.
kill the first guard whith sneaking(dble shift); the other 2 are better
dealt whith a knife each.
To kill the big guy (to the left, after the gate), 3 nice placed bombs will
do. To pass this part, you must have at least 2 knives; you can get some by
pushing the big box to the side across the door you DID NOT come from (main door)
and opening the vase.
Go to the main door. (left). There is a elevated door which is raised; to
get past this, cut the ropes that hold it up(right below).(with the knives!)
Go foward, killing as usual. To get past the door near the bell, ring it
once and hide yourself to the left (you will see what I mean) and wait for the guy
indoors to open it. Once done, kill him and his buddies.
now, you should get ahold of 5 puzzle pieces. (but you only find that out
way farther in the
stage). You should spend time exploring this place. Well, they are:
? to the left of the bell door, in a vase;
? in the top of the first corner (it turns to the left)(where the archer
was, straight ahead of
the bell door; you will need to climb).
? in the plataform with the 2 palm trees, just after the first 'bridge';
? in the plataform 30° to the right (0° is just ahead, from where you
came, 90° is to the
right) of the big palm tree in the center of the big square area
? in a platform cross of the one with the first stairs(the one you climb
UP), just after the
ramp (you got here from the 'big square')
also, in the big square (with the big palm tree), just across the illusion
fountain is a vase with
a spell ring. to get there, you will need to balance youself through the
wires. Just note: kill the guards first;
Proceeding is done by climbing on the top of the plataform with the
Foward you find some DESCENDING stairs. look for a hole; SAVE before going
it. kill the snakes whith a knife. or just run away.
then you will find the slots for the puzzle pieces. Trial and error and you
will eventually get
oH, MAN, this is a damn hard episode. It requires mental AND physical
skills. be warned.
Read the sign; kill everybody; beware of the bombs;
You must now break the window near the stairs; throw an empty vial or a
Once there, make your clean up; you will need expertise to kill the reptile
Once done that, you will notice an apparatus in the room the reptile was.
Beginning from the top, switch the 1st, the 2nd, the 3rd, and then 1st lever
Now go back to the main entrance (city gate), which is now open.
After the arch, in the corner (when the street turns to the right) you will
find a door up in the
platform. Go through it; You must, then, hit 3 times the window beside the

well, go back to the main street and keep going past the Garden Gate. keep
you will see, past one of the doors to the left of the end of the descending
ascending stairs with some boxes nearby. one of them is to be pulled to
reveal a button. But
you must be fast (dble foward) in order to get through the door. you now are
at the Red Moon
once here, kill your enemies and the two freak guys who start running around
They have keys to it and to the door to the left of it.
Once inside, look for a pillar with a button on it (in the room you just
entered). It reveals
another spell ring.
Exploring the surroundings and tops of the church will ease your money
thirst. Jumps and the
like will be needed. Jump from the mosque roof to the left of it it has a
lotta money there
(and a lotta scorpions, too). Once wealthy, go back to the smuggler
(knocking 3 times again)
and he'll let you through.
Next, in the palace door hallway, KILL THE ARCHERS FIRST! You will see your
fiend sleeping. sneak to him and hit him. If it doesnt kill him, throw a
knife or 2. Get his key
and enter the palace.
Go straight ahead and do not attack the guards. watch the scene. Once out,
let's get another
ring. Go left, (but do not go still to the 3rd floor) killing the guards, to
the room foward. In one
of the doors is the genie. Accept his challenge. This will be tough, but i
sugest to you to move
along the door wall. Once done that, go to the 1st floor, to the right (past
the pond with the
alligators), to the execution area. fall down in the hole. go back to the
main palace hall (save
first). kill the guy. now take the other hallway in the 1st floor going to
the Sultan's women's
area (beware of the fixed guards, the ones with thin voice).
This part now is very hard. you must be fast. There will be lots of reloads.
Take a look at the
schemes provided. In both of them, you must follow the paths from number 1
to number 2,
stepping in the ground switches (steps) in the way:
Once you get through with it (after the part whith the crocodiles), you
reach the princesses's
area. Save first. Kill the big faggie, and in one of the rooms, near the
pillows ON THE

The 1st to be played=5-4-2-1-3: the last to be played.
Done correctly, the force field will disappear and the flute will be yours.
Now, go back to the execution area. There is, on the left wall (where the
archer is), a rope.

Go straight ahead, in the direction of the guard. Across him, climb the
buildings up and put
yourself parallel to the 'bridge' where the crows stop. make some distance
or they will not
land there. Kill 5 crows and get them (check that you aim higher to
compensate gravity, if
you are using knives). Go ahead on the city, past the Garden gate. When
going down the
stairs, go straight ahead through the door. watch for enemies. Find the
serpent enchanter and
talk to him twice so on the second time you hand him the crows and the 50
coins. Explore the
area if you want. everything is climbable. Find the two stores and get
yourself something if
you want. Now, go to the RedMoon sect mosque (this scenario is the same you

rooms; and the third is
through the middle trap-room (go sneaking through it-it has a false wall).
in this room, push the wheel to open the tomb. the parchment (which you
havent got yet, if
following this manual) just gives you the order of the statues: SEE(left),
say(right). Anyways, if you want it, it is with a guy way down in the
temple. now go through
the passage; there is an eye behind the teleporter which might be a button.
I don't know
what's up to it. You may try to push it BEFORE pushing the 3 eye-shaped

of legs), and you

garderner is. talk to
him. now, go to the cactus garden and pick up the bucket.
Only now go to the fruit garden (the one the password is asked). Kill the

fountain, on the
ground. Eat it. Now, you have your PEAR PIP to take to the chief gardener.
he now is on the
botanical lab. (to the left of the exit from the fruit garden, you have to
clib a ladder.)
Now he gives you a key; go back to the main area, and walk through the door
as if going back
to the garden where the weeping lady is. Open the chest, and then take its
contents to your
boss. He is now on the cactus garden. he dismisses you. but you need still
the other items for
the 5-senses bouquet. Let's get to it now, since this will be a damn long
task, and will require
thecnical mastering of the game controls and a reat deal of brain.
? by the way, FIND THE WATERING CAN in the main area. it is not hard to
find, it is
near one of the corners (but on the outermost central square).
in the Main area, going through the other gate (where there are some
soldiers), you will find
the seed parchment in a vase near the boxes to the right. Read it. Another
puzzle. To solve it, you must write the sentences and make them mathematical
which results on a multivariable math equation system.
Now go to the botanical lab (where the funny music plays), and step onto the
step, (just where the chief gardener was when you handed the pear pip to
him) across the
shelves. The sequence for the seeds are:
4 Jasmine Seeds
2 Pear Pips
4 Patchouli seeds
3 Rose seeds
8 Jujubee seeds

you will reach an area with the sultan statue. get rid of the enemies.
Now what you have to do is to get to the room on the top of the wall behind
You will find a snake 'chest' too, which has a rope in it. (you only see it
if you look down
near the 'container').
you will have to drag the container on the edge near the red roof to the
border of the left
plataform on the wall which is to the RIGHT of the sultan's statue.
then, use the flute and climb the rope and jump to the platform.
Then, you will jump to the other platform and jump ON TOP of the platform
which holds the
cage in the corner.
Then, jump UP and hang yourself to the ceiling. Now, move yourself to the
when over the table. Get the items there, over the table.
Now you cant just jump down.
You will have to run around the table and jump to outside of the platform,
going 'against' the
wall, so you hang on the little spaces of the windows. Inspect the area and
you will see what
I mean. If you cant visualize it, you can try to jump to the red roof, which
is infinitely harder.
Well, I only made it once.
Once hung, you may release yourself down, but you may lose energy. Have a
life vial ready.
Now, flute down the rope and drag the 'vase' to the other side and once in
position, flute it up
again so you can get out through where you came.
Whew! now to the
Now, back to the hidraulic valvules. to the left of them, there is more (an
area with a

and to the right of the
yellow gate. To the left is the hidraulic valvule #5; to the right, the
Well, do not touch any of the valves. and go through the right of the yellow
gate (use the
statue base). There is a pool there on the left.
Note that the little pool IS DRY, and there is something shining there.
Hang yourself on the edge of the wall before falling, and have a life vial
ready. (you should
have full energy before falling). Now go get your precious ring on the pool.
It will be put to
use just ahead. You will need to use the hang-and-move-sideways move again
to reach the
cave. Once there, just BEFORE you get out of the little cave, summon the
Protection spell. Now go on and face your enemy. Once killed, go up through
boards and pipes and through the yellow gate. You may use the stone block to
the platform on the way back to the first set of hidraulic valves (#1 and
Now we will go to the flower itself. The right combination of the valvules
is the following:
From near where you insert the crank to away of the crank side: the status
of the wooden
crank goes on this side <<<<----------- far away from the crank
D = DOWN; U = UP
#1: D - U
#2: U - D - U

Now, go all the way to the main area, and then go back to where the crying

winning, go to the LEFT of the hallway you get out from. Just keep going
until you find a

Then go back and talk to the whore lady you came by a while ago. You must

Now, go to the right way of him and across the palm tree, go up the ramp,

look for a guy similar
to the spitting priests from the 2nd episode.
Maybe, if you are fast enough, there will also be a lady there, which is who

Now go to the fag drummer near the fountain and talk to him.
Just kill the black sect guy and enter the secret passage to...
Have plenty of antidotes ready.
Go down the door and to the left, past the wall, and through the door, to
After the door, go to the left, to an area where the river is drained (you
see a central 'cage'),

To the left, Jump through the platforms and get your magic turbant.
To the right, you find a rock inside the left door and past the wall. Go
through the right door
to proceed (watch for the enemies).
No, foward to the maze. For now, You should have 2 rocks.
The third rock is in the maze room. Do not fall on the dark green water.
Push the button near the door, and put a rock over the platform which

(in the first row).
Now, jump to the block that rises(in the second row), in front of the

the platform which
just appeared. (in the 4th row, to the right)
After you got your rock, go back to the central platform of the 2nd row

on the left platform of
the 1st row, and leave a rock in this platform.
Go to the RIGHT platform of the 2nd row, and leave a rock there.
So, if you got right, the following platforms should have a rock:
Central of 1st row.

You will reach a part where you are in a corridor, just after you go up some
You need to collect some relics, which you get from tough guys.
Go exploring. JUST DONT ENTER THE SECOND PART OF THE SECOND MOON
DOOR, where you will have to fight a wizard! Do not do that until you've got
from the astronomy room.
You need 8 relics, which are distributed to tough guys. Go exploring and you
will find them.
In the 'library' (it is past the astronomy room), you will find a lot of
tough guys. Once you got
rid of them, check one of the shelfs. It has a book out of place (it is way
in the middle).
Push it, and there will open a secret passage near the black moon.
Go back to the astronomy room. Go upstairs so you can place the relics in

behind the collumns and wait for him to come.
Also, abuse of life items (phials, apples, etc).
Once done with him, go back to the 'library', and enter the secret passage
near the black
moon, which you opened before. Go past the door. There will be switches, and
them IN ORDER OF APPEARANCE.
So, press the switches #1, #2, #3, and #4. at this point, you will only have
access to the

Repeat. Reload your magic whenever needed.
Once done with him, get your pass and head to the gate. Shit! you need a
camel, and the only
one available costs 5000 bucks! Well, in the 4-pillar area, talk to the tour
guide - TWICE.
Now go to the camel owner and reclaim your reward.
Now, on to the
here, things may seem confusing, but if you wander around some while, you
will find out that
the magic cave is not a 'maze', in the confusing sense of the word (WELL,
mainly, your fighting skills will be required.
Go foward until you see some platforms on the laterals of the cave. Climb
them and go on the
You will end up in a huge area with a Big Rock blocking one of the exits. Go
on foward, to
the real maze. Check the map provided and you can get a better idea.
Once you leave the huge area, take the right. You get to a 4-way.
On the 4-way, take the left, then the right, then left again, then right
again, and you will end
up in a 2nd 4-way.
You want to go to the left, where some archers attack from after a pit, and
there are some
platforms. Climb them. On the last one, summon your MAGIC Protection (F3-
level 3) and
go on to fight some guys. Once dead, get the ring from the magician, also
the letter he
drops. Get your money.
Now, go all the way back to the huge area, where the rock is now NOT
blocking the way.
You should explore the maze area for some bonus items.
SAVE. You get to another poisonous water area, and jumping here is hard.
save after each
jump. When you get to the lowest rock, SAVE on a SEPARATE SLOT.
Now, the platforms start to sink just as you step on them. After the last
step, you arrive on a
semi-ring, in which center shows up the biggest freaking frightening beast
in the game.
Unbelievably, it dies with 3 or 4 knives. Watch for its attack.
Keep going. You will arrive where the snake-head beast is. Before
confronting it, summon
your Magic Protection spell again (so it does not turns you on rock when you
at it), and run like mad to slice it with your sword. Have an antidote ready
in case it hits
you with the arrow, but just use it after you kill it. You must be stupidly
agressive and does
not give time for it to think.
Shopping time!(now it is time to waste your money, It is the last shop)
Buy lots of knives (40 total knives is good, so you have how to beat the
last boss and pass
reasonably easily this last part of the stage), and also, life and magic

killed, get out
of the room and go to the right door, to kill a reptile and get its key.
Also kill the enemies on the main hall.
Now go to the other door on the 2nd floor, and go straight ahead to kill
some other guards and
another reptile. Now, go to the third floor. Enter the gran wizier's room,
and push the shelf
outta the way. Crush the skeleton to get another ring, and give the parrot
seed to the parrot
(it's not a parrot, it's an "arara", a brazilian bird worth big bucks).
This part is pretty straight. kill people, get keys. You can use some knives
or bombs where
things are difficult, you will not need them (the bombs on the final
boss).When you get to
a big room with a semicircular wall, DO NOT STEP on the RED STAINS, THEY ARE
TRAPS! after cleaning this room, save!.
Talk to your chief gardener. just when you get control back, summon a
protection spell (it
may be level 1 or level 2), because it is hard to hit the oncoming vases.
You may have to
summon it twice.
Once done this part, go on foward. YOu will arrive to one of the most
difficult puzzles of the
game (just like the drum playing and the seed mixing).
You see a square, divided in 9 smaller, moveable parts.
naming each smaller square a number, in ascending order, from left to right
and up to down
(just like reading):
The right sequence is:
