TOMB RAIDER 3:  TRAINING LEVEL

This is the place to learn (or brush up on) Lara's basic moves. She guides 
you step by step through an exercise routine in the indoor gym (downstairs 
just off the main hall) and swimming pool (just beyond the gym), as well as 
an outdoor assault course and shooting range.

As in TR2, there are some secrets to be uncovered even at this early stage. 
Lara's moved her treasure room, and she's added a race course for 
practicing on the quad bike. This track is where the hedge maze was located 
in TR2 (to the left as you exit by the front door). You'll need a key to 
unlock it, though, and finding that key is a bit of a challenge.

Finding the Race Track Key

The training level begins in Lara's bedroom. In the closet next to the bed, 
you'll find some flares. Once you've got them, exit the bedroom and go to 
the left along the mezzanine, past the stairs down. Use the button to open 
the door to the attic now; you'll be coming down this way. Continue to the 
music room. Go through it to the left into the library. Find the loose book 
in the first bookcase and pull it to turn off the fireplace. Go into the 
fireplace and climb up the left wall into a secret passageway. Follow it to 
a room with a switch and a couple of wooden crates. Pull the crate on the 
floor once. Behind it are some more flares.

Climb up and pull the box in the doorway twice. Go around it to the right 
and push it once to open up the doorway into the attic. Now you've got a 
clear path downstairs. If that pesky butler gets in your way, just lead him 
to the refrigerator downstairs in the kitchen and lock him inside for the 
duration.

The switch opens the basement door, which is downstairs just off the main 
hall on the way into the gym.

The door is timed to close after a little while, so you'll have to hustle. 
Light a flare if you need it to navigate the dark attic. Pull the switch, 
press the Look key to get Lara's perspective back, then roll. Run along the 
ledge, go right through the doorway, across the attic, and make a hard left 
into the stairwell and down. Use the Sprint key on the straight-aways but 
release it, if necessary, to navigate the curves. Once you make the right 
out the attic doorway, immediately jump to clear the railing. Aim for the 
middle of the stairs so you can side flip to the right over the banister. 
That'll save you running down the staircase. Roll and sprint through the 
open door. Now catch your breath on the way down to the basement.

Continue on to the huge fish tank. Note the position of the RACETRACK KEY 
on the bottom of the tank just beyond the leopard print chaise longue. 
Pull/push the crate under the opening in the ceiling and climb up into it. 
Follow the passageway to the opening above the water. Jump in and swim 
around to pick up the key. Return to the opening and climb out. Now take 
your prize out to the garden for some well-won joyriding.

(NOTE: To get off the quad bike when you're finished, press Roll + Left/Right.)

Getting the Quad Bike out of the Track Area

After many months of trying, someone's finally figured out how to get the 
quad bike out of the race course and drive it around the grounds.

Lara's Treasure Room

Lara's new treasure room is located off the main hall, on the right as you 
enter through the front door. The switch that opens it is in a closet on 
the opposite side of the main hall. To get in, first go to the swimming 
pool. Press the button behind the diving board to open the switch closet. 
There's no hurry getting there; this door isn't timed. This next part is, 
however:  Throw the switch, roll, take a running jump, then sprint toward 
the door, pressing Jump to somersault through as it comes down.

When you've warmed up sufficiently, you can also compete for the best time 
in the assault course and racetrack-try to beat your friends' times or 
simply best your own record. Now you're ready to tackle the real adventure!

(NOTE: To get from the training level into the actual game, approach the 
front gates to start a new game.  Or, escape to the menu ring, choose the 
passport and flip the pages to select a new game or load a saved game.)

ANTARCTICA PART 1:  ANTARCTICA Kills: 30 Items: 28, plus a CROWBAR, 2 keys 
and 4 save/power-up crystals Secrets: 3

Be sure to find all the secrets so you can access the bonus level at the 
end of the game. Note that one of the regular pick-ups here will be the 
UZIS if you didn't get them in a previous level.

Objectives: First, get onto the ship to lower the inflatable boat. Use this 
to get to the compound. Turn on the generator and get the gate control key. 
Use it to open a gate that will enable you to reach Dr. Willard's office.

An FMV sequence precedes this level: Lara is the sole passenger on a 
helicopter flying to the RX Technologies base in Antarctica. A storm blows 
up, and the pilot loses radio contact with the base and is forced to land. 
In a moment, the ice beneath the copter begins to give way. Lara scrambles 
for the exit and jumps free just in time. The pilot isn't as fortunate.

Walk-through: Lara has made it to the ship, the RX Explorer, anchored near 
the base camp. There are Desert Eagle clips in the water to the right. Jump 
in to retrieve them and climb out of the water onto the small ice island as 
quickly as possible. Alternately, you can pick up these clips after you 
have the inflatable boat.

(NOTE: The light blue exposure meter on your screen plummets rapidly in the 
freezing water. Once it's depleted, Lara will quickly die if she stays in 
the water. You may be able to get around this in tough spots by saving your 
game underwater and reloading. This resets the exposure meter. Just be sure 
you don't accidentally save as Lara is about to drown!)

If you aren't already on the small ice island near the start, jump onto it 
now. Once there, turn to face the HUT. Just across the water, you'll see an 
ice ledge that's flat on the left side and slopes up on the right. Take a 
running jump to grab the ice ledge just to the left of the point where it 
bends. If you grab too far to the right, Lara won't be able to hold on.

Go past the hut. (NOTE: it contains SECRET #3, but you'll need to find a 
key to unlock it. You'll get the items behind the ice window from behind in 
a moment.) Take a running jump across the channel. Climb up onto the snow 
ledge just to the right. Walk up the ledge until you get to the steep ramp. 
Turn around and jump up to the ledge on the right. From there you can take 
a running jump to the flat spot at the top of the ramp. Jump to the top of 
the ice arch. (NOTE: You can see a med-pack behind the sheet of ice farther 
down the channel. You'll get this a bit later.) Cross over the arch and 
jump into the cave on the right. Now pick up the things you saw earlier--a 
large med-pack, flares, a rocket and a save/power-up crystal.

Go back across the ice arch and down to the left. Continue along the shore 
parallel to the ship. When you reach the water, swim for the square ledge 
ahead and climb out quickly. Give Lara a moment to warm up, then swim to 
the far ledge near the wall. Climb up the snow at the corner and jump up to 
grab the handholds on the ceiling. Traverse nearly to the end and drop to 
the block below. Jump over to the deck of ship.

ON THE SHIP: Drop down into the hold. Go down the ramp into the engine 
room. Kill 2 red-jacketed crewmen. Climb up behind the engine and pull the 
switch to open a trapdoor behind you. Drop down and kill another crewman in 
the hall. Go up the ramp, where you'll meet another RX Techie. Press the 
button to open the door opposite. Go in. (NOTE: The doors with buttons here 
and below near the engine room lead to a connecting hallway. You don't need 
to open them.)

Go down the ramp to the right toward the yellow pipe. Another guy in a red 
jacket tries to mess with you. Take him out, grab his Desert Eagle clips 
then drop down through the opening in the floor. As you go up the passage 
below another guy sneaks up behind you. When you kill him, he drops some 
Uzi clips. Climb up the ladder and press the button near the porthole to 
drop the yellow boat into the water.

Climb back up to the room with the horizontal yellow pipe and go back into 
the next room. Climb up through the opening in the ceiling and follow the 
hallway to the upper deck. Go around to the right toward the stern. When 
you come to a break in the outside rail, take a standing jump-grab into the 
opening in the ice wall. Drop down to find SECRET #1--MP5 clips and a 
save/power-up crystal. (NOTE: If you don't already have the MP5 ASSAULT 
RIFLE, you'll get it here instead of clips.) Climb out and jump back to the 
ship.

ICE WALL AT THE BOW OF THE SHIP: Go to the front of the boat to the angled, 
off-white metal thingey that was holding up the boat. (OK, so Iím not very 
nautical.) Stand at the base of it and jump over the peak. Hold Jump so 
that instead of sliding down the other side, Lara hops off and lands on the 
snowy ledge across the water. Walk to the left end and jump up to the 
triangular flat spot. Then take another standing jump around the corner to 
the next flat spot on the left. Climb into the small, rectangular opening 
to find a rocket. Climb/slide down to the rectangular snow ledge at water 
level, and take a standing jump with Action to land in the boat without 
getting Laraís feet wet.

(NOTE: If you didn't get the Desert Eagle clips on the bottom of the pool 
at the beginning of the level, you may be able to get them more easily now 
by parking the boat nearby, jumping in for the clips, then climbing back 
into the boat.)

WATERWAY LEADING PAST THE HUT: Drive around behind the ship and circle back 
to the canal near the hut. There's a doorway about halfway down the canal 
on the left. Park the boat close to the opening and jump out (Roll + Left). 
Climb the ice ladder, slide down the ramp and jump to grab the ledge above 
the small pool. Pull up and crawl in to the right. This is SECRET #2--the 
large med-pack you saw behind the ice window, along with a small med-pack 
and some grenades. Crawl back out, past the opening where you came in, and 
on to another opening. Drop down into the water and hightail it for the 
boat. Warm up a bit and drive closer to those flares on the bottom of the 
channel. Then you can get them without freezing to death.

GATEHOUSE: Continue down the channel and around the corner to a small 
building with an RX Tech sign on it, black metal bars above and a metal 
gate off to the left. Park the boat near the landing, jump out and kill the 
cranky armed man. Note the padlock on the GATEHOUSE door. You'll be back 
later with something to open it.

Go around the back of the building. In the water below the ice ledge on the 
right is a rocket. Get it quickly. Now climb on the box and jump up to grab 
the metal structure. Traverse across to the other side. When you reach the 
end, hook to the right and drop down onto the snow.

RX-TECH COMPOUND: Slide down near the corner. Take out the guy in the 
passage and continue to some buildings, including a TOWER WITH THE RX-TECH 
LOGO ON THE SIDE. Kill the guard dog. Pick up the shotgun shells in the 
corner behind the green building with the three barrels at the side. (NOTE: 
You'll encounter several buttons that don't work yet, but they will once 
you turn on the generator.)

Go into the dark passage opposite where you entered. Kill another guy and 
his dog on the way, and pick up some Desert Eagle clips. Continue to an 
open area. There are more shells underneath the ELEVATED FUEL TANK.

Enter the snowy cave opening just beyond the bend in the pipe leading out 
of the fuel tank (not the hole where the pipe goes, nor the cave beyond the 
hole). This passageway leads to a building guarded by 2 huskies. The 
electric doors are going haywire. Treat these like blade traps and run 
through quickly as they start to open. Go up the stairs to the office, 
where you'll meet 2 men with guns. One drops a small med-pack when you kill 
him. Use the button near the desks to open the closet nearby. Inside is 
another small med-pack. In the metal room beyond the office, you'll find 
the CROWBAR. Another RX thug comes in behind you. Kill him and take his 
shotgun shells. (NOTE: If by some cursed twist of fate you don't yet have 
the SHOTGUN, you'll get it here instead of the shells.) Return down the 
stairs, past the clamping doors, and take out another red-jacket guy outside.

Go back to the area with the elevated tank. Then follow the dark passageway 
back to the area with the tower. One of the supporting legs is climbable. 
Go up it into the tower room. Pull the switch to open a trapdoor on the 
roof of the adjacent building. Use the crowbar to pry open the padlocked 
door and exit. (NOTE: Don't forget to take the crowbar with you; you'll 
need it again.)

Use the monkey bars to traverse across to the next roof. Follow the 
walkways around to the far right. At the end you'll find a small med-pack. 
Return to the roof with the trapdoor and drop down. The sign on the wall 
that says "FUEL SUPPLY" shows the proper valve sequence to activate the 
generator--green, red, green, red, reading from top (generator) to bottom 
(fuel tank). Pull the switch to open the exit. There's a guy waiting for 
you outside near the fuel tank. He's carrying a small med-pack.

Follow the pipe from the FUEL TANK down into the opening. Go through the 
room at the bottom and climb the ladder on the other side. Arrange the FUEL 
VALVES to match the diagram: The first gauge is already red, so leave it 
alone. For the second valve, turn the wheel so the gauge reads green. Leave 
the third valve alone (gauge is already red), but turn the fourth so the 
gauge reads green.

Grab the save/power-up crystal near the rightmost valve, go through the 
water and climb the ladder. You'll come out in the GENERATOR SHED. Go 
through the door to the generator. (NOTE: If you explored here earlier, 
this door would have been closed.)  Pick up the large med-pack in the 
corner behind the generator, then use the switch to turn on the power.

Outside there's also another building which is partially demolished. 
Explore inside cautiously. In the lounge in the back you'll meet a mutant 
who'll spew poisonous green gas before dying.

Leave this area through the ice tunnel on the left. This leads to the 
KENNEL. Press the button on the fence to open the left cage. Kill the dog. 
Then press the second button on the fence between the two cages to open the 
door there. Two more dogs will need your attention before you press the 
third button to open the door into the building. One more dog waits inside 
the office. You can also find some Uzi clips in an alcove and the GATE 
CONTROL KEY on a low platform. (NOTE: If you don't have the UZIS already, 
you'll get them here instead of clips.) Another armed techie will come in 
to investigate when you take the key.

When the coast is clear, head to the left through another ice tunnel. Kill 
the man lurking in the passage and approach the wooden bridge. The husky 
down below is guarding some grenades. You can shoot it from above then 
climb down for the goodies. Climb out and cross the bridge. At the next 
area, go left at the building (where you saw the fuel supply sign) and 
through the dark hallway to get back to the first part of the compound. Go 
through the next tunnel ahead on the left, which will lead you back to the 
monkey-bar area. Traverse back to the GATEHOUSE where you left your boat.

BACK AT THE GATEHOUSE: Go around front and use your crowbar to pry open the 
door. A red-jacketed guard will arrive when you go inside, so stay sharp. 
Use the key to activate the gate mechanism. Then press the button to raise 
the gate.

Get into the boat and drive through the gate into the channel beyond. 
Disembark at the ledge with the flag and the gunman on it. Kill him and 
take his Uzi clips. Park the boat next to the ledge at the corner opposite 
the ledge with the flag. Jump into the water, grab the HUT KEY from the 
alcove and quickly climb back into the boat. Drive back down the channel 
toward the GATEHOUSE. Turn right there and follow the channel back to the 
hut at the beginning of the level.

BACK AT THE HUT: Use the hut key to unlock the door. Kill the dog that 
rushes out. Then go in to get SECRET #3--a save/power-up crystal, Uzi clips 
and flares. Get back in the boat and return to the area where you got the 
hut key. Continue down the channel, past the gatehouse, gate and ledge with 
flag. A bit further on, stop to retrieve some shotgun shells from a ledge 
on the left.

When you come to a dead end, get out of the boat into the doorway. Climb up 
the snow to a shack. Kill one red jacket at the entrance. Then go up the 
hill and around (watch out for the open elevator shaft) to approach the 
building, where you'll have to kill another guy. Go around the back of the 
building to end the level.

A cut scene ensues: Lara enters the shack and discovers Dr. Willard chowing 
down on some tomato soup. (At least we hope that's what it is.) He seems 
glad to see her, but she immediately confronts him about the mutant she met 
in the cantina. He dismisses her concerns, obviously delirious at his 
experiments' potential. Willard talks of accelerating evolution and says 
that the real power is in the meteorite's core, which he can access now 
that he has the four artifacts. Lara, who has had more than enough of 
busting her butt for employers that turn into power-mad mutants, tells him 
his idea of good timing is, well, BAD. Willard snags the artifacts and 
flees down into the mines. Naturally our heroine gives chase.



ANTARCTICA PART 2:  RX-TECH MINES

Kills: 17 Items: 23, plus a CROWBAR, BATTERY, WINCH STARTER and 5 
save/power-up crystals Secrets: 3*

*The number of kills varies depending on the actions of your enemies (the 
mutants) and allies (the white-suited guys with flamethrowers). There are 
also several places where you can avoid confrontations and continue on.

Objectives: Get into the heart of the mines to the mine car junction. Ride 
each of the three cars through different areas of the mines. In one area 
you'll get a crowbar, which will help you get a battery. In another, you'll 
find a winch starter. Use the battery and winch starter in the third area 
to fire up the winch. This will enable you to get to the excavation site 
and exit to the Lost City of Tinnos.

Walk-through: Climb out of the elevator shaft and crawl along until you can 
stand. Now you're in a square hallway with three automatic doors. If you 
keep walking you'll go around in circles forever. As you exit the first 
crawlspace, you see a closed door on your right. Head to the left. When you 
step on the area of floor marked 1X in the diagram, you'll hear a door 
closing elsewhere--that's the third door (D3). Walk to the corner and turn 
left. As you step forward (to 2x), the door ahead (D2) will open. Go 
forward and round the next corner. When you step forward (to 3x), the door 
ahead (D3) opens. In the process it covers up the second crawlspace on the 
right wall. When you pass the door (and step on 4x) the door at the start 
(D1) opens. Go around the corner, forward down the long hall with no doors, 
and around the next corner. Now you're back at the start. (The door on the 
left, D1, is covering the first crawlspace.) Walk forward a few steps (to 
1X). You'll hear the third door (D3) close again. TURN AROUND and go back 
down the hallway the other way. When you reach the next door (D3), it will 
be closed, allowing you to access crawlspace #2.

Crawl through, following the duct down to a hole. Back out and climb down 
the ladder to the bottom. Get the MP5 clips and press the button to open 
the door. Watch through the window as the guy with the flamethrower puts a 
couple of mutants out of their misery, or go out and assist. (NOTE: You'll 
meet a few more of these white-suited guys as you go along. If you don't 
harm them, they won't mess with you.)

Follow the snowy tunnel to the JUNCTION where several mine car tracks 
converge. Note the padlocked door at the left end of the walkway. You'll be 
back later with something to open it. There's a mutant lurking below in the 
far left corner. You can go down and kill him now, or wait. Just watch out 
for that poisonous breath.

Climb up to the control room on the far left. Enter and run to the left. 
Roll and take out the mutant lurking on the other side of the doorway. The 
button in the doorway turns on the lights.

Climb onto the roof at the doorway. Cross to the back right, turn around, 
crouch and drop back to grab the edge. Traverse a little way to the right 
to a ladder on the back of the building. Position Lara's feet at the bottom 
edge of the building and jump/twist to grab the sill of the crawlspace 
behind. (NOTE: If you're having trouble with the jump from the ladder, try 
climbing all the way down so Lara's hands are on the very bottom rung of 
the ladder. Then tap the Forward key to climb just until her feet come up 
onto the bottom rung. Now try the jump/twist--that's Jump + Roll + Action.)

Pull up and crawl in to get SECRET #1--a small med-pack and grenades. 
(NOTE: The closed door here leads to SECRET #2. The button that opens it is 
elsewhere.) Safety drop to the ground and kill that mutant if you didn't 
earlier.

Now it's time to take a little ride. The controls for the MINE CARS are 
simple, but using them effectively may take a little practice. You can ride 
either the lower or middle level car first, but the upper level should be 
done last. I've put the middle level first, since it's a bit easier than 
the lower level.

MIDDLE LEVEL MINE CAR: Get in and ride without braking past the first gap 
in the tracks. Brake (Jump) on the next downhill run to slow your approach 
to the curve before the bridge. Brake on the slope after the bridge then 
take the next curve without braking in order to clear the gap beyond. Swing 
the wrench (Action) to hit the switch. This will stop the car at the 
platform ahead. (NOTE: The items you see off to the left on your way down 
the track are SECRET #2. You will get them later.)

Get out and allow the flamethrower guy to kill the mutant. Get the 
save/power-up crystal and carefully run past (or crawl under) the drills 
through the door. There's a hole in the snowbank at the back left 
containing flares. Enter the short hallway opposite. Slide backwards down 
the ramp and grab the edge. Drop to the block below. Be careful not to fall 
into the deep chasm.

The tunnel near the dark block houses a big, nasty mutant but no goodies. 
You can avoid it if you like.

Safety drop down onto the snowy walkway below on the left (when facing the 
chasm). Go to the other end of the walkway. Jump to the angled block, slide 
back, grab the edge and drop to the ledge below. There's a mutant inside 
the opening above. He doesn't have any goodies, so you can skip this area 
if you like. Or crawl in, shoot him from the opening and back out.

Traverse along the crevice to the left and drop to grab the crevice below. 
Traverse back to the right. Drop to the ledge below and, if you like, kill 
the mutant below. Jump to grab the crevice above and traverse back to the 
left. Pull up, crawl through and kill the mutant on the other side.

In the next area, you'll meet another flamethrower guy and 3 mutants 
lurking in various places around the room. Your friend may help you kill 
the mutants, but don't count on him. Get the CROWBAR from the top of the 
monkey bars and the rocket at the bottom of the pool.

If you're going for all the secrets, you'll need to do some climbing. See 
the small, rectangular opening high on the wall? That's where you're 
headed. Find the low snow ramp against the wall below and to the right of 
the opening. Walk to the top of the ramp, stand at the left side and grab 
the nearly invisible horizontal crevice in the ice wall. (Press Action + 
Forward to grab it, no need to jump. Traverse to the left and pull up into 
the crawlspace. Press the button there to open the door back at the first 
secret area, enabling you to access SECRET#2 when you return.

Drop down and scope out the exit: It's the high opening with the black area 
inside. You can't reach it from below, so you'll have to make your way over 
to it on top of the snow banks. Climb onto the pile just to the right of 
the entrance. Take a series of running jumps from heap to heap clockwise 
around the cave until you reach the one below the door. (NOTE: Don't forget 
you can adjust Lara's angle in the air with the Left/Right keys. This comes 
in handy when you have to line up a jump at an odd angle in order to have 
enough running space for takeoff.)

Climb the ladder to the ledge on the left. Crawl up the passage under the 
first 3 drills. Run past the fourth drill. Go around the first crushing 
machine. Climb the ladder, then use careful timing to run past the next 2 
crushers. Climb up on the left to an area with a flashing light. Keep 
climbing and kill the mutant at the top. Safety drop down to the tracks and 
follow them back to the mine car.

Get in and ride on, around an S curve and up a hill. Don't brake on the 
hill, but as soon as the car leaves the tracks to cross the gap, brake 
hard. Then immediately swing the wrench to hit the switch. This will make 
the car go right at the fork. (If you miss the switch and go forward, 
you'll crash.) Don't brake again until after the car goes over the next 
gap. Brake on the curves and duck under the 3 girders. Soon you'll be back 
at the JUNCTION.

LOWER LEVEL MINE CAR: Get in and go. Duck as you pass under the 2 girders, 
then immediately stand and swing the wrench to hit the switch. Duck under 
the next girder, but don't brake until after clearing the gap. You'll curve 
around to the left. Duck under 2 more girders then get out when the car 
stops. Get the save/power-up crystal nearby.

Go into the hallway perpendicular to the track and press the button to open 
the door. Follow this passage and slide down the ramp into a room with 
steam coming up from the floor. A big mutant comes out of the side passage 
at the left end. Kill it, then follow this dark, twisting passageway until 
you come to a crawlspace on the right. Crawl under to the area below the 
steamy room and pick up shotgun shells and a rocket. Now there's another 
big mutant running around out there. Crawl out and kill it. Then continue 
along the twisty passage to a room on the other side of the fence from the 
steamy room.

Climb the ladder to the top. There are 2 buttons in the hallway here: The 
first opens the exit back to the track. The second opens another door. Go 
through that door and follow the hallway to a crawlspace. Crawl through and 
drop down into a room with a window. A big mutant rushes in from outside. 
Kill it. Collect the small med-pack and Uzi clips the mutant drops, and the 
Desert Eagle clips near the door. Then go outside. Jump into the pool and 
retrieve the WINCH STARTER from the bottom. Warm up, then swim down again 
for some more Desert Eagle clips bundled with some flares.

Go back to the door below the crawlspace where you entered this area. Press 
the button and kill the big mutant that charges out. Go to the end of the 
hallway and press the button to open the door there. Jump the gap where you 
climbed the ladder and go through the door on the left to return to the 
mine car.
(NOTE: If you missed secrets #1 and #2, it's possible to get them from 
here, provided you've already picked up the CROWBAR and used the button in 
the crowbar area on the MIDDLE LEVEL MINE CAR path. If you haven't pressed 
this button to open the door between secrets #1 and #2, the steep snowbanks 
will prevent you from leaving the secret area if you go there now. Also, 
you MUST explore  the rest of the lower level first. If you leave here 
without the WINCH STARTER, you won't be able to finish the level. To get to 
the secrets, go to the right side of the elevated track. There's a flat, 
triangular area of snow below. A carefully set up running jump along the 
seam on the right side of the triangular flat area, will land Lara on the 
tracks above. Follow the tracks to the left and across the bridge to the 
secret area. Pick up the items for SECRET #2 and kill the mutant. Go 
through the doorway in the far right corner. Pick up SECRET #1 if you 
didn't get it earlier. Then safety drop down to the ground in the JUNCTION 
area. Climb to the middle level and use the crowbar on the barred door. 
Pick up the walk-through below at the **.)
Ride the mine car back to the junction. Duck under the girder, then brake 
for the curve. Climb the hill, ducking under the girder near the top. Then 
immediately stand to whack the switch. This will send the car onto the 
track straight ahead. You'll pick up a save/power-up crystal and return to 
the JUNCTION. (NOTE: If you miss the switch, you'll take the left fork back 
to the junction, missing the crystal.)

(**) UPPER LEVEL MINE CAR: Before heading out, use your crowbar to open the 
door at the end of the walkway near where you entered. Inside you'll find a 
LEAD ACID BATTERY. And, if you didn't do it earlier, return to SECRET AREA 
#1. If you followed the walk-through for the middle level, the inner door 
will be open. This is SECRET #2. There's a mutant inside, along with a 
save/power-up crystal, MP5 and Desert Eagle clips. Climb back out the way 
you came and safety drop to the ground. Now head up to the upper level mine 
car.

Ride the mine car up a hill and down the other side. Don't brake for the 
curve or you won't be able to get up enough speed to jump the gap. Duck 
under the girders and drills. Continue into a cave where the car will stop.

Pick up the flares on the snowbank ahead to the left. Jump over to the 
WINCH. Place the battery in the opening on the side. Climb onto the top 
platform (facing the arm) and use the winch starter to get it going. This 
will lower the yellow submersible. Now comes the hard part.

(NOTE: Remember to get Lara's health and exposure meters back up to 100% 
before diving again and to use a med-pack as you swim, if necessary, to 
keep her from freezing to death. Also, you may be able to cheat through 
this by saving your game underwater and reloading. This resets the exposure 
meter. Just be sure you don't accidentally save as Lara is about to drown!

In the pool below the winch platform, there's a single yellow light on the 
wall. Dive in and swim down toward that light and into the passageway just 
to the right of it. You can climb out here to get air and warm up.

Now, jump in the water again and swim underneath the submersible where 
you'll find an opening you can climb into. There's a large med-pack inside. 
Now you're aiming for a small opening between the two lights on the wall 
below the sub. Swim through that opening, then to the right.

In this small, icy underwater cave, there are two openings in the ceiling: 
One is a square hole where you can surface and get another large med-pack. 
Head for that opening first. The other opening is a long shaft leading up 
to the next area. After getting the med-pack and warming up, go back into 
the water and make the long swim up the water-filled shaft. You'll swim 
through a save/power-up crystal on the way up.

At the top, there's a place to surface and a small med-pack. From here, 
climb up to the EXCAVATION SITE.

EXCAVATION SITE: Apparently Willard and his cronies have uncovered more 
than just a few artifacts. There's a flamethrower guy here, but he's pretty 
much useless. Kill the mutant inside the passage above the entrance on the 
right. (Or, just leave him be. There's nothing there.)

Cross the bridge over the deep chasm and kill 2 more mutants--one on each 
side of the Quonset hut. Go to the far right, past the carved stone heads, 
to the end where the ledge meets the wall. There's a light mounted above 
and another ledge down below. Jump to the angled block next to the wall, 
slide down backwards, grab the edge and drop onto the lower ledge. This is 
SECRET #3. Inside the dark cave you'll find a large med-pack, Desert Eagle 
clips and grenades.

Return to the cave opening. Take a running jump across the chasm to the 
small ledge. Turn around and take another running jump across the gap to 
the small, triangular ledge. Now take a tricky running jump to the next 
ledge. Set it up carefully so you have enough room to run before jumping. 
Once on the square ledge, it's another running jump across to the next 
ledge. Climb into the alcove above, get the grenades, and take a running 
jump from there to the lower of the two ledges below the bridge.

Climb up onto the bridge. Cross over to the Quonset hut. Take a standing 
jump from the raised block supporting the bridge to grab the roof of the 
building above the door. Pull up and walk to the back, where you'll find a 
small med-pack. Return to the front of the building, press the button to 
open it, and enter to complete the level.



ANTARCTICA PART 3:  LOST CITY OF TINNOS

Kills: 90  Items: 24, plus 2 keys, 4 Oceanic Masks, plus 5 save/power-up 
crystals  Secrets: 3*

*The number of kills varies greatly depending on how long you take to get 
through certain areas. See the note on , below. Also, if you use grenades 
to kill the mutants, you may get an inaccurate count on the stats screen at 
the end of the level. Note that one of the regular pick-ups here will be 
the ROCKET LAUNCHER if you didn't get it in a previous level.

There are several possible routes and sequences of doing things in this 
level. One possible sequence, which will allow you to get all of the 
secrets, is described here.

Objectives: Explore the courtyard of the ruined city to find the key and 
switches that will let you access the rest of the level. Cross over two 
bridges (one is broken), to the next area. From here you'll need to do two 
separate side "missions"--one to find a key, the other to find four masks. 
You'll need all of these items to open the level exit.

Walk-through: Go through the metal door into the ruins. You'll find 
yourself in a COURTYARD of sorts with a tall, square pillar and several 
doors, gates and hallways.

First, go to the far left corner, up the ramps to a large alcove with a 
ladder. Climb up and follow the passageway to a switch with a window-type 
opening on the right of it. Pull the switch to open a door below. Continue 
along the hall to the left of the switch until you come to another 
opening--this one above the tall pillar in the courtyard. Stand toward the 
right side of the opening where the ceiling is higher. Then take two steps 
back from the edge and a standing jump to land on top of the pillar. Turn 
right and take a running jump to grab the ledge on the right with the 
save/power-up crystal and rocket. (NOTE: If you don't have the ROCKET 
LAUNCHER yet, you'll get it here instead of the rocket.) Safety drop down.

Now go to the door you opened with the switch. It's at the top of the ramps 
near the ladder you climbed earlier. Take a standing jump to grab the right 
side of the doorsill. Inside you'll find the FIRST ULI KEY. Use this in the 
lock at the far right side of the courtyard to open the gates there.

Go through the gates and climb the ladder. You can use the switch nearby to 
open the gate leading into the hallway where you were earlier, but this 
isn't necessary. Go outside through the opening on the left onto the ledge. 
Throw the switch. (This doesn't do anything until you pull the next switch 
below.) Climb back in and go forward to the end of the hall. Slide down the 
ramp and use the switch to open the carved double doors leading back into 
the courtyard. (If you pulled the other switch above, this switch will also 
extend a ladder in the room where you'll go next.)

Cross the courtyard to the far left corner. Go through the doorway into a 
room with 5 buttons on a high ledge. Climb the ladder you just extended and 
press the first, second and last switch from left to right. This opens the 
gate below. Drop down and go through.

[NOTE: Several people have asked if there is a solution to the 5-button 
puzzle other than trial and error. The best solution I've heard comes from 
Jeff Reid, who notes that the symbols on the blocks behind each switch 
could represent living things in a food chain: hunter, elk, trees, birds, 
fish. If you read each set of symbols from top to bottom, all but the 3rd 
and 4th sets make sense (3rd--trees don't eat elk; 4th--fish don't eat 
birds). That works for me.]

BROKEN BRIDGE: High up in the cave wall on the right is a GIANT WASP HIVE. 
When you walk out onto the bridge the giant wasps begin to swarm out. They 
keep coming as long as you remain on the bridge or until you've killed 
about 21 of them. (See note on WASPS, below.) You can either kill them as 
they emerge from the hive, or continue along, killing the wasps as you go.


When you reach the gap in the bridge, turn left and take a running jump to 
grab the opening of the snowy alcove in the cave wall containing a 
save/power-up crystal. Jump onto the top of the pile of snow at the left 
side of the opening (when facing the bridge). Grab the stone ledge above 
and pull up. From here, face the bridge and look up beyond the arch on the 
right. You'll be able to see the HIVE from here. If you want all the 
secrets, that's where you're headed.

First, take a running jump to grab the left archway, then pull up. (NOTE: 
If you don't want the secret, you can safety drop down from the back of the 
arch and pick up the walk-through below at the **.) This next bit involves 
two invisible platforms. A light source, such as pistol fire or a flare 
will illuminate these. Once you get onto one of them, light a flare and 
drop it and you'll be able to see it clearly. This will help you to set up 
the next jump and keep you from stepping off accidentally. Watch out for 
any stray wasps, since they are capable of knocking Lara off the ledges.

The first invisible platform is between the two archways above the gap in 
the bridge. From the corner where you're standing, angle Lara to face the 
left corner of the opposite arch. Take a running jump to land on the 
invisible block. Take a standing jump from the edge of the invisible block 
to the corner of the arch. Back up to the edge (the hive is on your left) 
and take a standing jump-grab over the peak to the other triangular flat 
spot. Turn left toward the hive opening. Take a standing jump from the edge 
to the next invisible platform. Take a final running jump into the hive 
opening.

Pull up, and go inside for SECRET #1. The goodies include a small med-pack, 
Desert Eagle clips and grenades. Watch out for the deep pit and, if you 
didn't kill them all yet, more wasps. Follow the same path back to the 
archway on the far side of the bridge. Safety drop down off the back.

(**) SECOND BRIDGE: Continue to the far wall. Pick up the small med-pack in 
the narrow cave on the left. Then head through the tunnel on the right. 
When you walk out onto the bridge in the next area, 2 extremely big and 
scary mutants come running out of the building on the other side. They 
shoot balls of energy, so keep moving! To dispose of them quickly and 
easily, hit each one with a couple of grenades while side flipping from 
left to right. You'll need to be careful not to accidentally fall off the 
edge, but there is a nice, fairly safe ledge below the bridge on the left 
near the end where you enter.

Once they're dead, cross the bridge. Before entering the building, take a 
look over the left side of the bridge. Below you'll see a square, gray 
door. This is the location of SECRET #3. You'll be back a bit later on to 
get it.

ROOM WITH SWINGING BURNERS IN THE DOORWAY: Now go into the building and 
carefully run past the swinging burners. Don't loiter in the next room. 
There's a small room above, which is SECRET #2, but you can't reach the 
ladder to get to it yet. About 6 wasps will emerge from the crack at the 
top of the room. You can stop to kill them, or continue to the right and up 
the stairs to the next area. (Or, if you like, you can go down the stairs 
on the left and do the ROOM WITH FOUR GATES and the ROOM WITH HINGED LEDGES 
now, but I have included it near the end. See below.)

ROOM WITH PILLAR OF LIGHT: Here you'll find a cross-shaped walkway with a 
PILLAR OF LIGHT at the intersection. Do not step into the light, or Lara 
will fall through the opening and burn to death. There are four doors--one 
at the end of each walkway--flanked by carved blocks depicting one of the 
four ancient elements: earth, air, fire and water. You can enter these 
areas in any order you choose. I'll describe them in order clockwise. The 
two stairways flanking the EARTH walkway lead down to the base of the 
PILLAR OF LIGHT. There are four receptacles here--one for each of the 
OCEANIC MASKS you'll find in the four elemental areas. There's also a 
small, square gate, where you'll re-enter this room later, and a tall, 
silver gate which you'll get to near the end.

THE EARTH ELEMENT AREA: Enter and walk into the quicksand. Stay to the 
right and keep moving, and you'll be fine. As you go along, 5 wasps fly in 
from above. You'll probably need to turn around to shoot at them, but you 
can keep walking backwards as you do. When you come to an alcove on the 
right with steps leading up, climb out of the quicksand. Turn around and 
take a standing jump from the left edge of the lowest step to the sloped 
block on the right of the step.

Take a standing jump over the quicksand to the rock pile. Now turn left and 
look for an opening in the left cave wall just below the rock bridge. Take 
a standing jump back over the quicksand to the triangular ledge at the far 
corner of the rock pile, just below that opening. Climb into the opening. 
Take the small med-pack and throw the switch. This drops a block from the 
ceiling of the first room after the swinging burners that will enable you 
to get SECRET #2. Climb out and return to the steps out of the quicksand. 
(BUG NOTE: Be sure to pull the switch only once. See the note under SECRET 
#2, below at the ***.)

Climb the steps and follow the path. Go right at the fork (along the path 
with the torch), and kill the wasp. This will save you some trouble when 
you return this way later. Continue along the path, cross the bridge and 
take the first OCEANIC MASK from the pedestal.

This will start an earthquake that continues until you leave the area. WALK 
back along the path. If you go slowly and carefully, the falling rocks 
should land in front of Lara, instead of on her. When you reach the fork, 
go left (past the torch) and take a running jump across the gap with lava 
below.

Go forward and to the right, down the steps to where the quicksand used to 
be. Now it's a deep chasm. Take a running jump from the bottom step over 
the chasm. When you land, immediately hop back and grab the edge to avoid 
more falling rocks. Pull up and take a standing jump from the right side of 
the block to the next flat ledge around the corner. Walk to the end of the 
ledge. Then take another running jump to the ledge at the far right. (Watch 
out for the overhanging rocks on the right.) Immediately run into the 
hallway on the right so Lara doesn't get squashed by still more falling rocks.

Once inside the hallway, jump to grab the ladder on the right. Climb down 
and follow the passage to some swinging burners. Carefully pick up the 
Desert Eagle clips in the alcove on the right, then run past the burners to 
a switch. Pull it to open the trapdoor abovbe the ladder on the left. The 
trapdoor is on a slow timer, but you shouldn't have any trouble getting 
through before it closes. When it does, go through the small, square gate 
(it opens as you approach) and return to the room with the PILLAR OF LIGHT. 
(NOTE: There may be a stray wasp or two waiting for you if you left the 
room below without killing all of them, so keep your eyes open. Also, you 
can get SECRET #2 now if you like. I have included it later on, to save a 
trip downstairs. See below at the ***.)

THE AIR ELEMENT AREA: This is basically a big maze. The 
diagram  tinnos_maze. gif may help you navigate. The shortest route is 
marked in red, but if you explore a bit, you can pick up five items--2 
small med-packs, flares, Uzi clips, shotgun shells and grenades. The only 
danger is a single wasp at the far left corner in the area with the movable 
block. If you get lost, just keep on in a consistent direction--e.g., 
always keep the wall at your right hand and turn only when you reach a dead 
end.

The goal is the ramp at the far right corner. This leads up to a room with 
three other ramps rigged with spiked wooden cylinders. Avoid the center 
ramp, which leads down to a lava pit. Walk up one of the side ramps. When 
the cylinder starts to roll, side flip to the other ramp. Then quickly side 
flip back to the first. Keep going and repeat the side-flip-back-and-forth 
for the next set of cylinders. Continue to the top. Take the OCEANIC MASK 
from the pedestal and run through the door on the right (behind the 
statue). It's timed to close quickly once you step off the pedestal, but 
getting back on the pedestal will open it again.

Stand in the corner and let the door close behind you. Go down the ramp, 
jump into the pool and swim back to the hallway behind the PILLAR OF LIGHT 
room. Go through the small, square gate to return there. Now, choose 
another door.

THE FIRE ELEMENT AREA: The passage from the entrance widens into a large 
cave with a pool of that weird, yellow lava (or whatever it is). There are 
a number of square pillars standing in the pool. Some of these have burners 
on top, which ignite when Lara stands on or jumps over them. (NOTE: There's 
also a map carved into the ceiling of the cave. If you climb on the block 
and light a flare, the "safe" blocks on the map will glow.)

Start on the left side and take a running jump to the closest block on the 
left (#1). From there, take another running jump over the next pillar to 
land on the pillar against the far wall and a little to the right (#2). 
Turn right and take a running jump to grab the next pillar (#3), which is 
also against the left wall. Pull up and turn to the right. Take a running 
jump to land on the block with the large med-pack and shotgun shells on top 
(#4). This block will ignite after a moment, so grab the items and quickly 
back flip onto the previous block (#3). Now take a running jump back to the 
pillar where you got the goodies, and another running jump to the ledge 
near the exit. If you aim the jump onto the pillar so you land at the right 
side, you can turn, run and jump, without having to set it up first.

The carved tile just inside the doorway is a trapdoor. There's a large 
med-pack beyond but it's impossible to get it without being flattened by 
the rolling spiked cylinder.

(NOTE: I had originally thought it impossible to get this item, but several 
people wrote to tell me how. It can be done by exploiting a bug in the 
game. First trigger the cylinder and jump to safety. Then face the 
cylinder, move as far to the left and as close to it as possible. Turn 180 
degrees. Jump backward a number of times and Lara will gradually slide into 
the cylinder. When you have reached the centerline of the cylinder, turn 90 
degrees to the left and do forward jumps. Once Lara is over the med-pack, 
pick it up. Use the same technique to get out of the cylinder again.)

Fall through the trapdoor and slide down the chute into the next room. Here 
there are 4 fire-breathing mechanical statues above a pool of lava. Between 
the two statues on the right is a ledge with a switch. At the opposite end 
of the room is the exit gate. To get to it, you'll need to jump across a 
series of 3 invisible platforms without getting barbecued. Here's one way: 
Take a standing jump from the walkway to grab the first invisible platform. 
DON'T PULL UP IMMEDIATELY. Watch the flame on/flame off sequence. Just 
BEFORE the flame goes out, begin to pull up. By the time Lara is standing, 
the flame will be out. Take a standing jump to grab the next invisible 
platform. (You don't need to walk to the far edge first.) Repeat this 
sequence to get to the third block. While hanging, traverse to the left 
corner. Watch the flames and pull up just before they go out. Turn to the 
right and take a running jump over to the ledge with the switch. Pull it to 
turn off the statue nearest the exit. Turn around and, when the flames go 
out, take a standing jump to grab that third block again. Traverse to the 
left, wait, pull up, turn right and take a final running jump to the ledge 
by the exit.

DON'T RUSH IN. There's a swinging burner just inside. Go around it, climb 
onto the platform from the side and get the OCEANIC MASK. Exit through the 
door on the right (behind the statue). It's timed to close quickly once you 
step off the pedestal, but getting back on the pedestal will open it again.
Stand in the corner and let the door close behind you. Follow the passage 
to the gate on the left. This opens automatically, bringing you back to the 
room with the PILLAR OF LIGHT. Now, go upstairs and choose another door.

THE WATER ELEMENT AREA: Enter and approach the first pool. Below are two 
rotating wheels, each with three scythe-shaped blades on it. Safety drop 
into the water between the blades. Roll and swim up to the ledge in the 
center. Pull up onto the ledge and immediately crouch to avoid the blades. 
Crawl forward into the passageway. At the bottom of the water-filled shaft 
beyond is a large med-pack.
Crawl back out to the ledge and safety drop into the water. Roll and 
carefully swim down past the lower blade wheel. Go through the opening at 
the bottom center and follow the tunnel to a room with FOUR SQUARE OPENINGS 
and a rotating blade wheel.

Swim into the LEFT OPENING to get air. Pull the lever, which opens a door 
inside the rightmost opening of the four. This door is timed, so roll after 
pulling the lever and don't hesitate too long at the blades.

Once inside the RIGHT OPENING, swim up to the top for air. Below, on each 
side, is a blade wheel, then a ledge, then another wheel. The outer wheels 
start to spin when you approach. Get the Desert Eagle clips from the one 
ledge if you like. Get the Uzi clips on the other and continue past the 
second blade wheel on that side to an alcove with a lever. (It's at the top 
right if you're facing that wall.) Pull the lever to open the gate at the 
bottom center of the same wall. Swim down through it, climb out of the 
water and get the OCEANIC MASK.

Use the switch in the alcove to the side of the mask platform to open a 
door down in the room with the FOUR SQUARE OPENINGS (and get the 
save/power-up crystal). Swim back to the previous room and keep going 
forward, hugging the bottom to take the least damage from the blades. Go 
through the opening straight across the room at the bottom center. Follow 
the underwater tunnel to the right, then down. Pull the lever on the left 
to open a gate ahead, roll, and continue on through the narrow crevice on 
the left. Pick up the MP5 clips on the bottom, and swim forward then right. 
Now you're back in the room with the FOUR SQUARE OPENINGS. Go through the 
one on the BOTTOM. (NOTE: You can stop and get air in the top opening, but 
if you're fast you won't need to.) Continue along the underwater passage 
(the current will sweep you along) until you can surface in knee-deep water.

Wade forward, go into the water on the other side. Then swim down and 
forward, through a small opening and up a long shaft to an alcove with a 
switch. Pull it to fall through the trapdoor below into a hallway. Head to 
the left, through the gate on the left, which opens automatically. Now 
you're back in the room with the PILLAR OF LIGHT.

WHEN YOU HAVE ALL FOUR OCEANIC MASKS: You can place them in the receptacles 
around the base of the pillar of light. Or, wait until you get the SECOND 
ULI KEY as well.

(***) From the PILLAR OF LIGHT ROOM, go down the stairs where you entered 
(next to the Earth gate). If you pulled the switch in the Earth area, there 
is now a movable block in the middle of the floor. Kill any leftover wasps 
as you climb onto the block and jump to grab the ladder. Climb up to the 
opening and enter the room. Jump past the swinging burner and crawl into 
the alcove to get a large med-pack and save/power-up crystal. Climb out the 
way you came.

(BUG NOTE: It's possible to come to this point and find that the block you 
need to climb on to reach the ladder is not solid. As far as I've been able 
to tell, this is a bug triggered by pulling the switch in the EARTH ELEMENT 
AREA more than once. There are a couple of alternatives aside from loading 
an earlier save or restarting the level. If you're playing on the computer, 
you can download a savegame with Lara entering the secret area. Or, on any 
platform, you can try using the corner bug to obtain the secret.

If you haven't got all four OCEANIC MASKS yet, return upstairs and choose 
another door. If you have, proceed downstairs to the ROOM WITH FOUR GATES. 
(These stairs are on the opposite side of the room from the stairs leading 
up to the element areas.) Pull the switch to open the gate and enter 
cautiously.

ROOM WITH FOUR GATES: Three of those huge mutants are waiting for you 
inside. One comes out of the gate opposite as you enter. Two more emerge 
from the side gates when you reach the center of the room. You can devise 
your own strategy, or try this: Kill the first with your weapon of choice, 
while jumping up and down to avoid the fireballs. Then go to the middle of 
the room to release the other two. Quickly retreat to the entrance and 
climb the ladder on the left (when facing the entrance gate). Once up on 
the ledges you can crouch near the wall and shoot the mutants from relative 
safety. When the coast is clear, climb down.

Alternately, after killing the first mutant, you can go into one of the 
side alcoves, which will release the mutant on the opposite side. Kill it, 
then go to the other alcove side to release the last one.

Pull the switch in the left alcove. This raises a platform above and to the 
left of the gray stone block in the mutant room. Climb onto the block, jump 
to grab the ledge and pull up. Follow the upper ledges around to the right 
to a small opening. Crawl through to the next room.

ROOM WITH HINGED LEDGES: The switches are numbered in the order you use 
them. The square, hinged ledges are indicated by letters A-F.
Approach the first swinging burner. Stand to either side and jump or crawl 
past it. Turn to the left and take a running jump to the ledge behind the 
second swinging burner. (Start to run when the burner is farthest to the 
left.) Crawl into the alcove and pick up Uzi clips and flares. Crawl out 
and take a running jump back to the first walkway with the swinging burner. 
 From here, take another running jump to the ledge ahead. Crawl in and pull 
switch #1. Along with switch #2, which you'll get to in a moment, this 
raises the two ledges below switch #2--labeled B and C in the diagram.

Crawl out of the alcove and take a running jump to the ledge ahead on the 
right (opposite the one where you entered). Go into the alcove and pull 
switch #2. This lowers ledge A, below the long ledge with two statues. And, 
if you already pulled switch #1, it raises ledges B and C. Exit the alcove, 
turn right and hop down the steps to the corner ledge (B). Turn around and 
take a running jump to the next ledge (C) and a standing jump down to the 
rectangular pinkish stone ledge in the corner. Turn right, back up to the 
wall and take a standing jump to land on the raised block next to switch #3.

Be careful not to drop down onto the lower pinkish ledge or the walkway 
near the carved double doors (the areas colored ORANGE in the diagram). If 
you do, giant wasps will swarm out of the hive above the pool. (See note on 
WASPS, below.)

Use switch #3 to raise ledge D (just above in front of the switch). Climb 
back onto the block at the left of switch #3. Take a standing jump to grab 
the pinkish rectangular ledge. Pull up, turn around and take another 
standing jump to grab ledge D, near switch #4 (above the switch you just 
used). Pull up, throw the switch and either side flip quickly to the left 
to land on the rectangular ledge, or fall onto the block below as the ledge 
drops and jump back to the rectangular ledge. Switch #4 also raises ledge E 
below the end of the walkway spanning the room.

To get there, you'll first have to raise ledge A again. Jump and grab ledge 
C (below switch #2) and pull up. Then take a running jump to the corner 
ledge (B). Turn around and jump up to grab the step. Pull up and climb up 
to switch #2. Use it again (put it in the up position) to raise ledge A 
(below the ledge with two statues). This also lowers the two ledges below 
(B and C), but you don't need them anymore.

Crawl out and go down the two steps on the right. Turn left and take a 
standing jump to ledge A. Take one step back from the edge and then a 
standing jump to land on ledge E (under the walkway). Jump up to grab the 
handholds on the underside of the walkway. Traverse across to the alcove 
with switch #5. Pull it to open the exit doors and raise the ledge (F) just 
outside this alcove. Take a standing jump to land on that ledge, then pull 
up onto the walkway. Now you're ready to go for the THIRD SECRET.

(NOTE: If you're not interested in getting the secret, don't bother pulling 
the last switch. Just climb down and exit to the room with shallow pools, 
where you'll get the SECOND ULI KEY. Pick up the walk-through below at the 
****.)

Go into the hall at the end of the walkway. There you'll find switch #6. 
This opens the door below the bridge way back where you killed the first 
two giant mutants. The door is timed, so you have to hustle. Even if you 
jump over the pink walkway near the door, you'll encounter giant wasps 
throughout this run. (See note on WASPS, below.) Don't stop to kill them or 
you won't make it in time. Either shoot as you go or just out-run them.

The sequence with hints: SAVE YOUR GAME. Pull the switch. Press Look and 
Roll. Run along the walkway and cut to the left toward the wasp hive (the 
crack in the wall). Press Action as you run off the ledge so Lara lands in 
the pool of water below. Roll underwater and climb out of the pool. 
Run/jump to the double doors.

(NOTE: Also, if you're having trouble angling the run off the walkway so 
that Lara lands in the pool. If it's still not working, try this instead: 
First raise ledge D again. Make your way back up to switch #2, pull it to 
raise ledges B and C. Then use these to get back down to switch #3 and pull 
it. Climb/jump up to ledge D, take a running jump to grab ledge F, pull up, 
then pull up onto the walkway. Save your game and pull switch #6. Run out 
of the hallway, side flip to the right to land on ledge D below, side flip 
to the right again to land on the stone ledge, then jump forward to the 
ground near the doors. Lara will take a little damage.)

Run/sprint into the next room (where there are many shallow pools) and 
along the left wall. At the far left corner is a small room with a ladder. 
Climb up, dismount on the left side and pull the switch to open the gate.

Run through the PILLAR OF LIGHT room and sprint up the stairs. Go through 
the doorway on the right of the Earth gate. After the first turn in the 
stairs, sprint down through the room with the movable block (if you dropped 
it to get the second secret) and to the left. Run carefully past the 2 
swinging burners. (If you've done well and not run into anything yet, 
you'll have time to hesitate a little here.) Run/sprint to the far end of 
the bridge and run off the right side to land on the block below. Turn 
right and run/jump/slide down the snowbank and dash through the door (which 
I hope is still open).

Unless you're brilliant, you'll make some mistakes and hesitations the 
first time through. Even so, don't reload yet. Continue to the switch that 
opens the gate to the PILLAR OF LIGHT room. Then you won't have to do it 
again the next time through, saving precious seconds. Climb back down, 
killing wasps as you go. (NOTE: You can also skip down to the section on 
the ROOM WITH SHALLOW POOLS/SECOND ULI KEY below and get it now if you like.)

To get back up to the switch that opens the secret door, pull the lowest 
switch (#3), climb/jump to the platform it raises (D), take a running jump 
to grab the ledge below the walkway (F), and pull up. Now save your game 
and try again. The second time through, you might also want to save your 
game at the pillar of light room if you've made good time.

When you make the timed run successfully, you can claim SECRET #3--the last 
of the game--a save/power-up crystal, Desert Eagle clips and a large 
med-pack. If the door closes, use the switch twice to reopen it. Return via 
the pillar of light room to the room with many pools.

(****) ROOM WITH SHALLOW POOLS/SECOND ULI KEY: A number of giant wasps will 
be swarming around, so just deal with them as best you can. (See note on 
WASPS, below.) The SECOND ULI KEY is on a shelf in the room in the left 
corner (when facing the door leading back to the ROOM WITH HINGED LEDGES). 
The room next to that (left side, near deeper pool) and the room in the 
right corner each have a giant mutant lurking inside. You can draw them out 
one at a time or avoid them. Once you have the key, climb the ladder to the 
PILLAR OF LIGHT ROOM.

Use the Uli key in the lock near the silver gate. (If you didn't get the 
third secret, you'll also need to use the switch to open the silver gate so 
you can get in.) If you have already put the four masks in their proper 
places, using the Uli key will turn off the PILLAR OF LIGHT, revealing an 
opening below. Drop into the opening and slide down the ramp to end the level.

A cut scene follows: Willard uses the artifacts to raise the meteor from 
its crater. Then he falls into the pit and begins to change. Get ready for 
the final battle....


LOST CITY OF TINNOS - NOTE ON WASP RESPAWN: In several areas, the wasps are 
cued to keep emerging from their hives until you leave the area, up to a 
certain number at a time (broken bridge, 21 wasps; room with swinging 
burners in the doorway, about 6; room with shallow pools, first time, up to 
about 18 from the ceiling and 8 from the hive in the corner near the pool, 
succeeding times about 25 from the ceiling only. In these three areas, they 
will respawn if you enter the area again. (The trigger point for the 
swinging burner room is the doorway leading to the burners.) In some areas, 
the wasps will only spawn once if you pass over a specific trigger point 
(as in the room with hinged ledges, where 14 wasps will emerge when 
triggered the first time, but no more after that). Thanks to Brian C. from 
Tomb Raiders Traveler's Guide and Tim Morrow for their help on the wasp issue.



ANTARCTICA PART 4:  METEORITE CAVERN

Kills: 7  Items: 2, plus the FOUR ARTIFACTS  Secrets: 0

Objectives: Get the four artifacts back, defeat Willard, climb out of the 
cavern and highjack a helicopter to get the off this big iceberg.

Walk-through: So you're trapped in a huge round room with narrow, sloped 
walkways above searing lava. Your former employer has turned into a huge 
insectoid mutant that shoots deadly energy bolts, and no matter how hard 
you hit him he just won't die. What's a girl to do?!

Remember that one shot from Willard is all it takes to kill Lara, and he 
NEVER misses. So, above all, don't let him get off that one shot. Try to 
stay on the opposite side of the crater from him. He won't fire as long as 
you are anywhere within the ring around the crater (i.e., if Lara steps 
across the white markings on the floor at the entrance to each "spoke," he 
will zap her). However, he can also kill her by batting her around with his 
spider feet. So keep him moving. If he gets too close, change direction, 
and try to stay on the opposite side of the crater from him. As you do 
this, continue to shoot at him. The obvious weapons of choice would appear 
to be the grenade and rocket launchers. However, these can be difficult to 
aim while moving. If you have any clips left for the Desert Eagle, I highly 
recommend using it, since it auto-aims well.

Shoot Willard until he's stunned. (It takes several grenades or rockets or 
about a dozen Desert Eagle rounds.) If you've done the difficult part and 
stayed on the opposite side of the crater from him, then it'll be fairly 
easy to roll and sprint down the nearest straight path toward an artifact. 
Pick it up, roll and sprint back toward the center. (If Willard is just 
getting up as you're coming back toward the center, save your game. Use a 
different slot just in case you've misjudged. If he's powering up to fire, 
then it's already too late. Reload and try again.)

Repeat the whole thing again for the three remaining artifacts. The last 
one will probably be the most difficult, since you'll have to get him to 
lie down on the far side of the crater from it. But once you have all FOUR 
ARTIFACTS, the meteor will fall back down into the crater, and Willard will 
become vulnerable. Now pull out the big guns and finish him off.

UPDATE: Several players have sent in refinements for this strategy. The one 
that proved the most consistently useful (at least for me) came from 
Kuerass in Germany:

Upon entering the circle, draw the Desert Eagle and start the chase. I like 
to go counterclockwise, heading from the starting point to the right. Pass 
three straights RUNNING, then two SPRINTING. (If the entrance is at the 12 
o'clock position, you're now at 9 o'clock.) Turn, aim, hit that trigger and 
don't let go 'til he got at least 12 rounds. He'll probably get pretty 
close to Lara but he won't fire as long as you're within the circle around 
the crater. The idea is to not go on until he actually goes down, so that 
he ends up falling down BETWEEN two straights (at roughly 10 o'clock). 
That'll give Lara a little extra time in the straight.

Run to the opposite straight (3 o'clock) and when Lara auto-aims him again, 
keep firing. When Willard gets up, he'll be less than a half-circle from 
Lara, but he'll still give chase counter-clockwise. He shouldn't reach the 
next straight (9 o'clock) before being stunned again. Now, roll, sprint in, 
get the artifact, roll, sprint out and repeat the whole exercise-run past 
three straights, sprint to the second, etc., and you'll be able to get each 
of the artifacts in order.

When Willard finally explodes, go toward the hallway flanked by two 
ladders. Take a running jump from the circular walkway to grab one of the 
ladders. Climb up until Lara's hands are level with the ledge. Climb 
sideways as far as you can toward the ledge and pull up. (Or, climb the 
ladder to the area with the carved face and back flip onto the arm of the 
statue behind. Then take a running jump to the ledge.) Go through the 
doorway. (The slope ahead is where Lara entered during the last cut scene.) 
Follow the passage on the right to emerge on a ledge above the crater.

Use the handholds on the ceiling to traverse to the next rock ledge. Go to 
the end and take a running jump to the ledge on the right. Climb onto the 
ledge above. Turn around and take another running jump to the thin, square 
ledge below the rim of the hole. Climb up through the opening and go around 
the edge of the hole to the tunnel in the snow. Slide down the slope and 
follow the passage to the compound.

Two armed guys in white suits are waiting there--one ahead, the other on 
the left. If you want all the pick-ups, the one on the left has a large 
med-pack, the one ahead Desert Eagle clips. Be careful when you approach 
the body with the clips; there's a guy with a flamethrower in the alley 
waiting to attack. Three more enemies emerge as you explore. (NOTE: You can 
press the button on the side of the building, but the door is already open 
and there's nothing inside.)

When you're ready, go through the alley at the open gate and around to the 
fenced-in area where the helicopter lands. As you approach, the gate opens. 
Enter to finish the level.

After a brief but action-packed FMV sequence, the credits roll. Then, 
following the final statistics screen, if you've found at least 59 secrets, 
you'll be given an opportunity to play the bonus level, All Hallows. If you 
start a new game now, you'll have all weapons and unlimited ammo.





INDIA PART 1: JUNGLE

Kills: 17  Items: 32, plus the SHOTGUN, 1 key and 6 save/power-up crystals 
Secrets: 6*

Be sure to find all the secrets so you can access the bonus level at the 
end of the game.

*17 is the maximum number of kills (there are 19 in the PC demo and perhaps 
the same in the PSX game). Your total may be substantially lower since, in 
most cases, you don't have to kill the monkeys. The save crystals function 
as power-ups--equivalent to a small med-pack--in the PC version of the 
game. They are useless in the demo. Also in the PC demo, MP5 clips and 
Desert Eagle clips appear as M-16 and automatic pistol clips.

Starting Inventory: Pistols (unlimited ammunition), 2 flares, 1 small 
med-pack, 1 large med-pack (In the PC demo, you also get the shotgun and 2 
shells to start.)

Objectives: Find a way into the ruins and locate the Indra key to exit the 
level.

Walk-through: Turn right and walk/jump up the slope. Turn left and slide 
down to the flat green spot. Turn left to face across the brown slope 
toward the yellow-green outcropping of tree roots. Take a standing jump 
from the edge of the green ledge to land on a flat spot waist-deep in the 
leaves. The tell-tale chime will indicate you've found SECRET #1--the 
SHOTGUN loaded with 2 shells plus 2 sets of Uzi clips. (NOTE: In the PC 
demo, you begin with the shotgun, so there's no need to do this part.)

After getting the shotgun, step forward and slide downhill to land in a 
flat spot near the first set of spikes. Then jump a bit to the left to land 
on the slope. Slide down to the flat area below, where you'll find some 
shotgun shells and a large med-pack. Pick up the med-pack but don't move 
from that spot until the boulder has landed behind you.

(NOTE: If you like, you can jump and grab the fallen tree trunk on the way 
down from the top of the slope. Pull up and make friends with--or kill, if 
you feel you must--a monkey. Drop to the slope facing downhill and continue 
to slide. Either drop down to the left of center so you slide onto the flat 
spot near the spikes, or jump to clear the spikes and press Left while in 
the air to angle Lara a bit that way. Jump to the left twice more to slide 
down onto the flat spot where the shells are.)

 From where the shells were, walk up the low rise, position Lara near the 
right edge and take a standing jump, turning a bit left while in the air, 
to leap over the leafy branches and land on solid ground at the left side 
of the base of the big tree. Use standing jumps to get up behind the tree. 
This is SECRET #2--shotgun shells and a save/power-up crystal.

Continue around the tree until you're facing the big slope below. Turn 
around and slide backwards down the green slope, grabbing the edge as you 
fall. Drop to the gray stone ledge below. Turn and drop backwards to hang 
from the stone ledge. Make sure you're at the high flat spot, not the lower 
part, before you drop, or Lara will fall into the spikes. Slide the rest of 
the way down the hill to the flat, brown area.

Hop down into the area on the left where there's a save/power-up crystal. 
The undulating brown stuff ahead is quicksand. Don't venture too far in. 
Rather, go to the first tall, square pillar on the left. You can climb onto 
it (using Action + Forward). Behind the wall, is SECRET #3. At the left end 
of the trench is a grenade. Two of the alcoves contain flares and shotgun 
shells. Return to the base of the wall and approach the corner of the 
temple. There's a doorway here. You can take a diagonal standing jump to 
get into it, or slog through the quicksand a short way and pull up into the 
doorway.

You'll find yourself in a courtyard. On the left, below the big slope, are 
two grated windows--one is recessed behind the bent tree. In the center of 
the courtyard is a small med-pack. As you approach, a monkey will come and 
pick it up. Follow the monkey into the passageway ahead and he'll drop the 
med-pack so you can pick it up. Continue along the passageway to the 
switch. Pull it to open one of the grated windows back at the courtyard.

Return there and, if you want to, take a short detour to get a med-pack. 
When facing the grated window you just opened, go to the left past the 
corner of the building. Follow the wall to the next corner. On the right, 
below the handle for the zip line, thereís an opening into the water. Jump 
in and swim through the passageway. As you emerge from the tunnel, youíll 
find a small med-pack on the river bottom. Get it and return through the 
tunnel before the piranhas notice you.

Return to the courtyard and climb up the rocks and the bent tree to the 
window you opened earlier. Hop down into the room below. Pull the switch 
and immediately roll and take a running jump up into the alcove opposite to 
avoid the encroaching spiked wall. When it has passed, hop down and climb 
up into the opening to the left.

Ride the zip line (holding Action) across the water to a small rocky 
outcropping.

(Note: If at any time you fall into the river, the current will sweep you 
along rapidly. Don't bother fighting it. When you come to rest, look for an 
underwater tunnel off to the right. Follow it to the end where you can 
surface. Climb out of the water and go to the left to emerge back at the 
courtyard. You'll need to use the switch to open the grate again in order 
to get back to the zip line. But the second time around you won't have to 
deal with the spikes.)

At the bottom of the zip line, climb onto the rock and take a running jump 
into the opening opposite. Enter the dark passageway and ready weapons to 
kill the tiger that charges from behind the rock ahead. (If you like, you 
can jump up onto the rock at the left side and shoot the tiger from safety.)

Turn and face the door where you entered. Just to the left of the three 
fungi is a pointed rock outcropping. Stand Lara at the corner and take a 
standing jump to land at the top. In the alcove to the right you'll find 
some Uzi clips.

Hop down and go to the far right corner of this area. There's a small 
med-pack on one of the stone blocks. One of the 2 monkeys may beat you to 
the med-pack, in which case you can either shoot it or patiently follow it 
until it drops the med-pack near the cache of flares (below).

At the top left corner of the area is a boulder. It doesn't roll until you 
pull the switch inside the hollow tree below. Do this to open one of the 
doors near the boulder, then take two side flips to the left to get to 
safety at the top of the low steps. Walk forward from the top of the steps 
and turn left. There are some flares inside the hollow tree.

Go to the top of the slope the boulder came down and into the door on the 
left. Pull the switch to open the door outside on the left.

Enter with weapons drawn. A tiger emerges from the bushes ahead on the 
right. The doorway is a safe spot; the tiger won't follow you here. Kill it 
and proceed down the path to the far doorway. A second tiger charges from 
around the bend. When you've killed it, backtrack to the brush where the 
first tiger emerged. Lara can walk through here to the area beyond. Take a 
standing jump to the top of the block in the corner and pick up some 
shotgun shells. Return to the path and follow it, past where the second 
tiger was, to a large open area under a leafy canopy.

(NOTE: I recommend saving about 20 shotgun shells for the end of the India 
levels. They'll come in handy taking care of the powerful "boss" character.)

Climb onto the block at the entrance. (NOTE: In the PC demo, there is a 
small med-pack on the ground to the right.) Continue forward to the far 
corner where you'll find some shotgun shells and Uzi clips. Down below in 
the misty area is a pit with spikes at the bottom. Avoid this for now. 
Instead, head to the corner where there's a fallen tree. Crawl under the 
tree (a monkey will show you the way). On the other side, turn right and 
walk along below the tree.

Now walk up along the fallen tree. Get the save/power-up crystal before or 
after killing the tiger that charges along the top of the fallen tree. 
(NOTE: In the PC demo, you can climb up onto the fallen log at the right 
side, instead of crawling under it. If you do this and don't backtrack to 
the right end, you won't meet this tiger.) On the left side of the fallen 
tree trunk is a horizontal branch. Jump to it from the fallen tree, follow 
it to the end, and take a standing jump to the next branch, where you'll 
find some MP5 clips.

Continue over the fallen tree trunk to a room with two grated windows. Drop 
down into the room on either side. Another friendly monkey will show you 
the way into the hallway at the left grated window. Don't go there yet.

First, look for some goodies inside the tree trunk. Take a standing jump 
from the edge of the opening in the floor to grab the bottom of the hollow 
tree. Pull up into the opening. This is SECRET #4. Crawl forward and pick 
up some flares and MP5 clips. Back up to the opening and safety drop into 
the spikes below. Lara will take a little damage, so use a med-pack 
beforehand if your health is low. Walk to one of the corners and take a 
standing jump out. (Or, if you want to avoid taking damage altogether, drop 
down and hold the Jump key and either Left or Right. Lara will hop back and 
forth between the angled blocks until she reaches a corner and jumps out to 
the safe area.)

Note the large metal gate at the foot of the green steps. You'll need to 
open this in order to continue. To do this, you'll need to get back 
upstairs. First get some goodies: 2 sets of Desert Eagle clips on ledges 
behind the spike area. If you're having trouble getting to the set on the 
left, try a standing jump from the corner up onto the flat ledge.

Now head for the dark corner behind the spike area. Hop down into the 
opening in the floor and follow the dark passage, walking through the 
spikes. Climb out into the misty area near where you were before. Retrace 
your steps over the fallen log to the room with two grated windows.

Follow the passage past the left grate until you come to a spiked area. 
Lara will look up to a lighted opening across the room. If you don't want 
the save/power-up crystal on the roof above, head for the lighted opening 
now: Walk forward through the spikes. Turn right and go to the edge of the 
green area. Take a standing jump to grab the stone block and pull up onto 
it. (Pick up the walk-through below at the **.)

To get the save/power-up crystal, step down into the spikes and turn 
around. Position Lara next to the right wall close to the step and jump 
straight up to grab the roof of the walkway. Pull up onto the roof and take 
the crystal. Turn left and follow the walkway to the end. Slide down the 
slope to land on the small corner platform below. Take a running jump from 
the left side of the ledge to grab the corner block on the other side below 
the crevice and pull up.

(**) Pick up the small med-pack. (This does not appear in the PC demo.) 
Jump straight up and grab the crevice in the rock wall. Traverse to the 
left until you can pull up. Kill the monkey if you're feeling particularly 
hostile; otherwise just continue. Climb onto the stone block and hop down 
on the other side. Enter the passageway, where you'll find another monkey. 
Continue to a switch below a boulder. The boulder doesn't roll until you 
re-enter the sloped part of the passageway. So, you can pick up the next 
secret before exiting.

Above the switch on the left is a small cave. Inside you'll find some 
harpoons and a rocket. This is SECRET #5. Back out of the opening, drop 
down, and pull the switch. Now light a flare and start running for the 
doorway at the bottom of the passageway on the right.

Climb down the rocks to the bottom of the cave. On the way down, try to 
kill the tiger that entered when the gate opened. Your gunshots may scare 
it off, in which case you'll need to finish it off when you reach the ground.

Go down the green stairs and through the gate you just opened. A little way 
in on the left is a tree with a shelf in it, where you can pick up some 
flares. (NOTE: In the PC demo, and apparently in the PSX game as well, 
there's also another monkey in this area.)

Look back toward the gate. Note the well-lit greenery at the top of the 
slope on the right. This is another boulder trap. Run across the area below 
the trap to set off two of the boulders. Approach the top of the slope and 
jump onto the flat area near the middle of the well-lit area to trigger the 
third. Side flip to avoid it.

Once all three boulders have landed, go up the slope into the greenery. 
Advance carefully, as there is a spike pit just inside. On the ground near 
the pit is a small med-pack. Pick it up and turn around so the pit is 
behind Lara. Drop back, grabbing the edge of the opening. Let go and 
immediately grab the ledge just below. Pull up into a small cave, where 
you'll find some flares and a save/power-up crystal. This is SECRET #6. 
Return to the opening and take a standing jump (pressing Action to lower 
Lara's arc) to clear the  spikes and land on the block beyond. Turn around 
and take another standing jump from the edge of the block to grab the pit 
opening. Pull up.

Return down the slope and, when you reach the boulders, turn left. Continue 
to the river. Here the water spills into a lagoon where it's safe to swim. 
First, follow the river upstream, to the right, where you'll find some Uzi 
clips on a ledge.

There are now several ways you can proceed and still get to the end of the 
level. You may be able to find others. To enter the ruins via a second zip 
line (longer but more fun), skip down to PATH A. To enter the ruins via an 
underwater passage (shortest route I've found), skip down to PATH B.

PATH A INTO RUINS (second zip line): Return downstream to the greenish 
point of land on the left shore. Take a running jump from here to the small 
island. Take a standing jump to the flat spot at the peak of the island. 
Position Lara at the highest corner and jump straight up to grab the 
jutting tree trunk above. Pull up. Use the switch here to open a gate in 
the corner where the man-made wall meets the rock wall to your left.
Safety drop back down to the island. Walk to the edge of the island nearest 
the building and take a running jump from here to grab the flat rock ledge 
just to the right of the square pillar. Pull up onto the ledge, turn right, 
then climb up the rocks and through the gate you just opened.

Go through the short passageway and jump the gap to land on the tree branch 
ahead. Walk across the branches to the top of the second zip line. Ride it 
down into the ruins.

(***) Enter the mossy, walled area. There are 2 tigers lurking here. Where 
they come from depends on where you enter, so stay sharp. There are several 
blocks you can climb on for safety, but once you've shot at the tigers they 
may hide and wait for you to approach again.

To get the save/power-up crystal, go up the green steps near the two peaked 
windows and climb onto the angled block. Take a running jump to the 
matching block ahead, then continue to the crystal.

There are two waterfalls in this area, one of which has a pair of openings 
behind it. There's also a closed gate at the bottom of some flooded steps. 
You will be returning later to open it. For now, go to the corner to the 
left of the waterfalls, climb onto the block there and take a standing jump 
into the doorway. Follow the passageway to a room with a pool. (This is the 
way you came in if you took PATH B.)

(****) Swim to the platform in the middle of the pool and pick up the 
flares. Get on the walkway with the gold door opposite the door with the 
torches. In the corner is an alcove with a movable block. Pull this block 
twice to open the gold door on this side of the room. Head for the gold 
door you just opened. (NOTE: In the PC demo, there is a tiger lurking 
inside.) Enter and pull the switch to open the trapdoor behind the movable 
block. Return there and drop into the water below.

Swim forward and surface in a room with a bridge-like walkway. There are 
two switches here--one at each end of this walkway. One opens the second 
gold door back in the pool room; the other opens the underwater gates back 
into that room. Use both. (Note the differences here between the full game 
and the PC demo, below.)

Go through the gold door you just opened (the one opposite the empty 
alcove) and use the switch there to flood the outdoor area. Return there 
(or go for the first time if you haven't been yet) via the doorway flanked 
with lit torches. Now pick up the walk-through below at the *****.

PATH B INTO RUINS: Swim across the lagoon to the corner where the ruins 
meet the rock wall on the left. Here you'll find an underwater passage. 
Continue until you can surface. Then climb up onto the walkway and use the 
two switches. One opens a gold door in the next room; the other opens the 
underwater gates into that room. Swim on through.

[NOTE: The switch room is substantially different in the full game versus 
the PC demo. In the demo, the switch room has only one switch on the 
walkway and an underwater lever (on the left wall when facing the switch on 
the walkway). If you choose PATH B, follow the underwater passage from the 
lagoon, and immediately cut to the left so the current doesn't sweep you 
into the next room. (If it does, reload a saved game or pick up the 
walk-through above at the ****.) Don't use the switch. If you tested the 
switch earlier, return it to its up position now. This will close one of 
the underwater gates and open the other, thus changing the water currents. 
Switch up = right gate open; current flows from lagoon into room with gold 
doors. Switch down = left gate open; current flows past underwater lever 
into room with gold doors, preventing you from using the lever. Use the 
underwater lever to open one of the gold doors in the next room. Then swim 
to the other side of the switch room and let the current carry you in.]

If you want all the kills, head for the outdoor ruins, where you can meet a 
couple of tigers. To do this, go through the opening flanked by burning 
torches. Pick up the walk-through above at the ***. Otherwise, continue 
with the next paragraph.

Swim to the platform in the middle of the pool and pick up the flares. Go 
through the gold door you just opened (the one opposite the empty alcove) 
and use the switch there to flood an outdoor area nearby. To get there, go 
through the doorway flanked with lit torches.

If you didn't get the save/power-up crystal here earlier, you can do so 
now. Climb on the angled block below the two peaked windows, take a running 
jump to the matching block ahead, then continue to the crystal.

(*****) Swim to the waterfall with the two stacked openings. Climb up, go 
under the falls and climb the ladder to the higher opening. Exit and go to 
the right. Climb up onto the ledge just ahead. Enter the short passage on 
the left and use the switch to open the underwater gate below. Exit the 
passage, dive into the water, and swim down on the side opposite the 
waterfalls to find the gate you just opened.

Swim through it and follow the long, underwater passage until you can 
surface in a small room. Kill the tiger waiting here. Then search the two 
dark corners for some MP5 clips and shotgun shells.

Climb up the ladder to the roof. Here you'll meet another monkey and find 
the INDRA KEY. If the monkey grabs the key before you do, you'll have to 
kill it to get the key. Go around the corner to emerge above the quicksand 
area you saw at the beginning of the level. On the steps below is another 
tiger. You may be able to kill it from above. When it's dead, drop down and 
go to the bottom of the steps. On the left of the quicksand trench is an 
alcove with some shotgun shells. On the right is the keyhole where you can 
use the Indra Key to open the door between the pillars. Jump down into the 
quicksand and exit the level.

A cut scene ensues: Lara emerges into a clearing where some tents and 
equipment are set up. We hear a voice--apparently the same man leading the 
Antarctic expedition in the opening movie--attempting to make radio contact 
with this camp. A blond man staggers from one of the tents. He's obviously 
unstable. Lara questions him about what he's doing there and reveals that 
she's looking for the Infada artifact, which she hopes lies in the ruins 
ahead. The blond man mentions "voodoo magic," but Lara is skeptical. She 
asks if there are others with him. He tells her that two others, Randy and 
Rory, are inside the temple, apparently buried under a mudslide. He wanders 
off into the woods, muttering something about Lara probably not leaving the 
ruins alive. She doesn't take much stock in his opinions and continues on 
her way.





INDIA PART 2:  TEMPLE RUINS

Kills: 30  Items: 36, plus 5 keys, 2 scimitars and 8 save/power-up 
crystals  Secrets: 4*

*Be sure to find all the secrets so you can access the bonus level at the 
end of the game. Note that one of the regular pick-ups here will be the 
SHOTGUN if you didn't get it in the previous level.

Objectives:  First, find a way into the ruins. Locate 2 keys to unlock the 
gate in the room with the six-armed statue. Ascend to the upper level and 
find 3 more keys to unlock the exit.

Walk-through:  Head to the right through the opening in the tree, and pick 
up a small med-pack. Advance slowly and a cobra will rear up from the 
undergrowth. Continue forward through the greenery, killing another cobra. 
If either has bitten Lara, use a small med-pack to antidote the venom. 
(NOTE: You'll know you've been poisoned if the health indicator bar turns 
yellow and begins to flash. If you think you may be meeting several snakes 
in a row, as you do here, you may want to wait until you've taken care of 
them all before using the med-pack.)

Use the switch on the right to open the gate at the top of the low steps. 
Climb the stairs and drop down through the opening. Crawl through the 
tunnel. There's another small med-pack in the alcove on the left. The low 
tunnel behind it leads back to where you started. For now, follow the 
larger passageway. Kill the cobra and continue to the next room where there 
are 2 monkeys. (NOTE: Unlike the ones in the first level, the monkeys 
you'll meet from now on are generally hostile, and you will need to kill 
them.) Climb through the opening to emerge near a lake.

Pick up the MP5 clips and shotgun shells at the top of the steps on the 
left. Take a running jump from the bank (at the right side of the tree) to 
grab the stone platform in the middle of the lake. (Press Left while Lara 
is in the air to adjust the angle so she can grab the block.) Pull up and 
take the small med-pack. From here, take another running jump to the 
shallow area on the opposite bank. If you miss the initial jump and fall 
in, either reload a saved game or swim for this shallow immediately to 
avoid being devoured by the piranhas. (NOTE: I mark these fish as a hazard, 
rather than an enemy, since you can't kill them. So either out-swim them or 
try and avoid the water.) Pull the switch in the right corner to open the 
underwater gate between the submerged ledges. Swim through it and continue 
until you can surface.

Climb out, kill the 2 monkeys, then climb up onto the far ledge via the 
second angled block. Pick up the Uzi clips. Then make your way across the 
mudslide to the stone ledge. Follow the ledge to the end, killing 2 more 
monkeys. Before going into the passageway, take a running jump to the ledge 
ahead (just to the right of the high, curved-top wall). Pick up the Uzi 
clips, drop down and retrace your steps over the mud, along the ledge, to 
the passageway. This time go through, killing yet another monkey along the 
way, and picking up a save/power-up crystal on the other side.

TREETOPS:You'll emerge on a ledge above the water near the beginning of the 
level. Jump to the branch on the left.

(NOTE: If you fall into the river here, either reload and try again, or let 
the current carry you to the left, where there's a still spot. Then either 
climb out on the bank at the left end, or swim down toward the rectangular 
gold grate. Before you reach the grate, there's a passage on the right 
where you can swim up, surface and crawl through. Retrace your steps 
through the cave near the beginning of the level to get back to the treetops.)

Walk to the tree trunk then take a running jump to the branch ahead and to 
the right (the one that bends upward at the end). Turn right and take a 
running jump to the next branch (between the tree trunk and the stone 
wall). On the right are some flares. Return to the previous tree and jump 
from branch to branch around to the other side of it, where you'll find 
some Desert Eagle clips. Go back around to the branch above the water.

WATERFALL CLIFF:Turn to face the waterfall and take a running jump to grab 
the stone ledge ahead. From there, jump to the short branch ahead, where 
you'll find a small med-pack. Jump to the left to land behind the 
waterfall. Follow the passage to the other side. Slide back and grab the 
ledge, then traverse to the right, under the falling water, until you can 
pull up. Pick up the shotgun shells. Crawl to the right until you can stand 
up. If you don't want all the kills and pick-ups, you can jump across to 
the next ledge now. Otherwise, drop/climb down to the flat, green spot near 
the water. Take a running jump to the right to land behind the lower falls. 
Go forward into the cave, kill the cobra, then continue to find some 
flares. Return the way you came to the green flat spot.

Climb/jump to the next ledge, shoot the monkey, then duck and crawl through 
the low cave opening. Kill the cobra lurking on the right, then slide down 
the slope and shoot the second cobra just inside the next passageway. Slide 
down the right side of the next slope; the left side is a boulder trap.

(**BUG NOTE: If you are playing on the PSX or have not installed the PC 
version patch, DO NOT SAVE in the next room, and DO NOT RETURN THERE after 
leaving. Otherwise, you risk coming up against one of the infamous 
"invisble wall" bugs.)

INTO THE RUINS: Drop into the next room, where there is a six-armed statue. 
To the left of the statue you'll find some shotgun shells. (NOTE: If you 
don't already have the SHOTGUN, you'll get it here instead of the shells.) 
In the far, right corner is a movable block. Pull it once, pick up more 
shotgun shells behind it, then crawl through the small opening to the next 
room.

Pick up the save/power-up crystal now if you need it. The statue comes to 
life and attacks with its six swords. When the swords are crossed over its 
chest, it is invulnerable, so you'll need to circle around behind it and/or 
keep it moving so it's not guarding itself. You'll see blood when you're 
hitting it and hear bullets ricocheting off the swords when you're not. The 
statue monster moves fairly slowly and, if you keep plugging away at it and 
don't let it back you into a corner, it will eventually fall and turn back 
into stone.

(NOTE: If you like, you can climb to the platform where itís safe and hang 
from the edge periodically to get the statue moving again. Or, while youíre 
up on the platform, pull the switches to open the doors, engage the statue, 
then run to the doorway for shelter when you need to.)

If you didnít already, climb up to the platform where there are 2 switches. 
Throw both to open one of the doors out of this room and the trapdoor in 
the floor. Drop through the trapdoor and throw the switch in the small room 
below to open the other exit.

Next to the switch in the pit is a movable block. Push it once. Enter the 
room beyond, which is SECRET #1. Proceed carefully, crawling under the 
poisoned darts. (NOTE: As with snake venom, if you are struck by one of 
these darts, you'll need to use a power-up crystal or med-pack to antidote 
the poison.) Hop down into the pit, grab the small med-pack and quickly 
jump out to avoid a rolling boulder. Now make your way carefully around, 
picking up flares, shotgun shells and another small med-pack from the 
various alcoves. Return to the statue room above the same way you came.

At this point, it doesn't matter which path you take first. You'll need to 
go both ways eventually in order to find the two keys that open the large 
gate in the middle of this room.

FIRST GANESHA KEY (gate above trapdoor):  Follow the passage, wading 
through the quicksand as fast as you can. Climb/jump up the slope near the 
right wall. Turn around and take a running jump from the mud to grab the 
ledge above the entrance. Pull up and kill a monkey. Pull the switch on the 
right of the gate to open it. Run past the spikes, jump the blade and run 
up the steps to safety.

Kill 2 monkeys in the next room. Go around to the right and locate the 
movable block in the second square pillar. Pull/push it under the left side 
of the central structure and climb from the block to the ledge. Go around 
to the other side of the ledge. Take a standing jump from the edge to grab 
the ladder recessed into the ceiling. Climb up for SECRET #2-shotgun shells 
and MP5 clips. Pull the switch and climb/drop down to the floor. (NOTE: If 
you don't already have the SHOTGUN, you'll get it here instead of the 
shells. This switch enables you to get the third secret a bit farther 
along. If you donít pull it, then the lever that opens the door for secret 
#3 wonít work.)

Use the switch in one of the gold-grated alcoves to open a door above in 
the central structure. Pull/push the movable block so you can climb up to 
it. Drop into the pool below. Pull the underwater lever to open the gate. 
Surface for air if you need it. Swim through the gate, pull the 2 levers in 
the next room to open a trapdoor in the passage between the two lever 
rooms. Swim up through it.

In the next room is a large, shallow pool flanked by steps. In the pool are 
3 underwater levers and a small gate. Jump into the pool and pull the lever 
at the foot of the steps to open the gate. It is timed to close quickly, so 
roll and swim for it. Inside is SECRET #3-a grenade, flares and a large 
med-pack. (NOTE: If the lever to open the secret door doesnít work, you 
missed an earlier secret and need to go back. See the note above under 
secret #2.)

If you're playing the PSX version, you'll probably want to get the 
save/power-up crystal on the other side of the pool before trying to get 
the key.

Return to the pool and pull the 2 levers opposite each other to turn on the 
fire-breathing statues above. In the firelight you will be able to discern 
several invisible platforms floating above the pool. Use these to 
climb/jump over to the solid ledge with the switch. (NOTE: If you're having 
difficulty getting onto the first invisible platform, it's a standing jump 
from the edge of the pool to grab the top of the block. A flare will also 
help illuminate the blocks if you don't want to bother with the levers.)

Pull the switch to open the gate at the top of the stairs to the left of 
the statue. This door is timed, so as soon as you pull the switch, side 
flip to the left, run off the platform and dash up the stairs through the 
gate.

Go to the right. Pull the switch, turn left and run to the far left end of 
the room. Pick up the FIRST GANESHA KEY, roll and run through the gate on 
the right (the same way you entered). You'll have to sprint both ways to 
avoid being skewered by the wall of spikes. After the spikes have passed, 
go back inside to the right to find MP5 clips and a small med-pack. (NOTE: 
If you're having an especially difficult time outrunning the spiked walls, 
try this: Pick up the key then stand still. Use a med-pack as the wall 
passes, and Lara may emerge unscathed. Thanks to Sven for this tip.)

Return to the room with the pool, which has turned into a mud bath. As you 
approach the mud, the invisible platforms crumble away. Slog through the 
mud, keeping close to the wall, and climb out on the other side. Climb/jump 
up the mudslide to the top right. Follow the passageway. Pick up the flares 
in the alcove on the left. The stairway opposite contains a boulder trap. 
Hop backwards up to the second step then run down into the doorway as the 
boulder rolls past.

Now go up the stairs. The two gates open as you approach. Enter and choose 
your path. They both end up in the same place, but the left path is more 
dangerous. Left:  Jump the blade, dash to the end of the hallway with a 
rolling boulder in hot pursuit, then duck and crawl through the low opening 
on the right. Right:  Follow the passage to the switch (you can hear the 
boulder rolling next door), kill the interfering monkey and use the switch 
to open the gate.

Kill 2 monkeys and pick up the small med-pack. Get the save/power-up 
crystal in the next room. Then go through the side passage and climb/drop 
down into the room where you killed the six-armed statue.

SECOND GANESHA KEY (other small gate):  If you haven't already done so, use 
the switch on the platform above the mud to open the second small gate. 
Follow the passage to the next room. Kill the 2 monkeys. Cross this room 
and enter the next, where there is a pool flanked by fire-breathing 
statues. Swim across, surface and climb out at the middle of the ledge to 
avoid being toasted by the flames. Pull the switch to open the underwater 
gate just below.

Swim through the gate, hugging the side or bottom of the tunnel to avoid 
being hit by poisoned darts. Once in the next room, stay to the right so 
Lara doesn't get crushed by falling rocks. Surface and climb out on one of 
the ledges to find a small med-pack. Swim across to the opposite ledge. 
Climb the ladder and back flip onto the ledge behind. Take a running jump 
to the ledge ahead and to the left (when facing the ladder). Jump to the 
next ledge on the left. Turn around and take a standing jump from the edge 
to grab the ladder above and ahead. Climb to the top. Take a standing jump 
to the next ledge on the left, then a running jump to the ledge with the 
cobra. (The opening below the cobra ledge is the exit from the next secret 
area.) Kill the snake, then take a standing jump to the ledge near the 
doorway.

Jump into the doorway and immediately jump back and grab the doorsill. A 
boulder will roll past overhead. Pull up and crawl under the darts and 
blades to the edge of the spike pit. Pick up the small med-pack on the left.

(***BUG NOTE: You might want to use the ALTERNATE PATH for this section, 
below, if you are playing on the PSX or have not installed the PC version 
patch. Otherwise, you risk coming up against one of the infamous "invisble 
wall" bugs.)

If you're low on health (or want to save in the PCX version), jump across 
the pit first and get the save/power-up crystal, then jump back to the 
other side. Turn around and hang from the edge of the pit. Traverse to the 
left side and drop down to the flat spot next to the blades. Crawl through 
the blades into the low opening to find SECRET #4. Kill the cobra and claim 
some Desert Eagle and Uzi clips, and a save/power-up crystal. Drop through 
the opening into the pool (watch those darts!) and retrace your steps back 
up the ledges to the blade pit.

This time, instead of dropping down, jump across. Get the save/power-up 
crystal if you didn't earlier. Locate the movable block (A) to the right of 
the crystal. Push it once (to A2).Turn to the right to face anothermovable 
block (B). Push this second block four times into the next room (to B2). 
Return to the passageway. There are three more movable blocks (C-E) next to 
the first block you pushed. Push the second from left (C) and the rightmost 
block (E) once each (to C2 and E2). Push the middle block (D) to either 
side (D2 or next to A2) to reveal a switch. Use this to flood the pool in 
the room below (the one between the fire-breathing statue room and the one 
where you killed the six-armed statue).

Go into the area where you pushed the first block. Ahead is a boulder trap. 
Stand in the middle of the ramp, walk forward carefully and back flip when 
you hear the boulders drop. The boulders will pass you on either side. 
Proceed to the bottom and take a running jump over the pit. Hang from the 
edge of the next pit and drop down into the pool (not the blades). Avoid 
the poisoned darts if you can, as you swim back to the room with the 
fire-breathing statues.

(ALTERNATE PATH: Climb and jump all the ledges to the top. Do not drop down 
into the spiked pit. Jump across instead, re-arrange the boxes and pull the 
switch. Now jump back across the pit, drop down and get the secret. Get 
back into the water from there and try to swim through the 
hopefully-not-blocked passage. The advantages are that you'll have to 
climb/jump all these ledges only once and you'll avoid the boulder trap. 
And you won't miss a single pick-up. Thanks to Hagix for this tip.)

Climb out of the water and go back into the next room, to the pool you just 
flooded. Jump into the pool and use the underwater lever to open the gate. 
Swim inside and collect the SECOND GANESHA KEY. Return to the room where 
you killed the six-armed statue and use your two keys to open the large gate.

Enter, jump over the spikes and quickly climb the ladder to safety as the 
spiked ceiling descends. At the top, kill 2 monkeys and pick up the 
save/power-up crystal. In an alcove on the other side of the room from the 
save crystal is a movable block.  Pull it out and jump from it to one of 
the high ledges with the switches. Pull both of them to open the gate below.

Drop down to the side of the gate and run in front of it to trip the 
boulder trap. Enter and hop down into the pit to close the gate. Continue 
past either of the fire-breathing statues to the next room. If Lara crawls 
or stays close to the wall, she won't get toasted.

ROOM WITH THREE SIX-ARMED STATUES: In the next room, you'll find 2 
six-armed statues (plus a third that does not animate). The first comes to 
life as you enter, the second only when you climb onto the platform with 
the third statue. Kill them one at a time. There are shotgun shells at the 
top of the steps and a small med-pack in the pool. Both of these spots are 
safe, as is the platform with the third statue. But you'll need to hang 
from the platform, climb out of the pool, or hop down from the step 
periodically to engage the statues in order to get their guard down.

When you've killed the statues, take their SCIMITARS and place them in the 
hands of the third statue to open the next gate. Get the Uzi clips in the 
pit just inside. Follow either hallway and climb through the small opening.

THREE KEYS AND THREE LOCKS: In the room beyond you'll find what's left of 
Randy and Rory, along with another six-armed statue. It animates as you 
approach the platform in the center. Kill it and pick up the THIRD GANESHA 
KEY from the platform, and some flares below the second body. You'll need 
two more keys to exit.

(NOTE: The low platform with the flares is a safe spot from which to shoot 
the statue. You'll have to hop down and back up again occasionally to 
re-activate the statue, but it won't bother Lara up here.)
(Alternately, wait to pick up the key on the pedestal. Get the other two 
keys first. Unlock two of the locks in the next room. Then return for the 
last key, pick it up and, as the statue animates, run and unlock the exit, 
then leave without having to kill the monster. Thanks to Vesa H., a fellow 
Finn, for this tip.)

The gate near the hole in the floor opens as you approach. Light a flare, 
sprint into the room and pull the switch on the opposite wall. Immediately 
roll, run to the left to the second switch, pull it and run through the 
trapdoor you just opened. All this must be done very quickly to avoid the 
descending spiked ceiling. Pick up the FOURTH GANESHA KEY and return to the 
big room. (NOTE: If you're stuck at the spike trap, try this: After pulling 
the second switch, immediately side flip to the right to land in the 
opening. Use a med-pack in-flight to minimize the damage from the spikes. 
Thanks to Vicki for this tip.)

Go into the next room, where you'll find a save/power-up crystal, the exit 
door, three locks and an opening above water. Stand facing the opening with 
the keyholes on your right. Jump into the water and swim forward toward the 
wall ahead. The current will suck you toward the spikes, but if you hold 
the swim key down, you'll be able to reach the wall, where the current is 
weaker. Follow the wall to the first lever and pull it. Now roll and try to 
swim back along the right wall (hold the swim and right buttons). When 
you're nearly to the corner, cut to the left. You'll get dragged toward the 
spikes, but you should be able to make it to the center of the room where 
the current isn't as powerful. When you reach the center, swim straight 
toward the opening. Then cut to the left toward the other side wall. Again, 
the current will drag you toward the spikes, but if you keep heading 
forward, you can make it to the far wall before Lara gets skewered. Follow 
the wall to the corner and pull the second lever, which will turn off the 
current. Get air if you need it, then retrieve the FIFTH GANESHA KEY from 
the bottom.
Use the three keys to open the gate at the top of the steps and exit the 
level.

A cut scene follows: Lara emerges from the temple and sees the psychotic 
blond explorer rafting down the river. She draws her weapons and fires. He 
laughs and makes some dramatic gestures and the temple begins to crumble 
around her. Lara dodges falling stone blocks as the bad guy gets away. She 
starts to follow on foot then notices a quad bike nearby.



INDIA PART 3: THE RIVER GANGES

Kills: 14 Items: 20, plus 4 save/power-up crystals Secrets: 5*

*There are two paths through this level. The totals above are for the path 
which leads past all of the secrets. The alternate path, through the ruins, 
will give you 29 kills and 24 items, plus 2 keys, 3 save crystals and only 
4 secrets.

Objectives: Travel down-river on your borrowed quad bike to find the level 
exit. If you take the path through the ruins, you'll need to locate 2 keys 
and open the gates that will let you drive the quad bike through for the 
final jump across the river.

Walk-through: Don't get on that bike yet; first, find a secret. Turn 
around, go past the temple and the fallen blocks to a ledge above the 
river. Turn around, drop back and climb down the rock ladder and left to a 
green ledge. (NOTE: Save your game frequently if you can. If at any time 
you fall into the river, you'll need to restart since the strong current 
and the piranhas will quickly put an end to poor Lara.) Turn around and 
take a running jump to the stone ledge ahead. Run, jump and grab the next 
ledge; pull up. (This jump is quite tricky. Be sure to jump from the left 
side of the block and hold Forward and Jump the entire time.) Turn left, 
take a running jump to grab the next ledge, and pull up. Turn right and 
take a running jump to the L-shaped ledge. Take a standing jump to the next 
ledge, using Action to lower Lara's arc so she doesn't hit the low ceiling. 
Take a running jump to the next ledge and another running jump to grab the 
last. Enter the room for SECRET #1.

Inside is a series of angled blocks above sharp blades. Stand with the 
first angled block on Lara's left. Side flip onto the slope and hold Jump 
to spring off each of the blocks in turn, landing on the square pillar 
above. Collect shotgun shells, a save/power-up crystal and a large med-pack 
from the ledges and drop down. Return to the beginning of the level the way 
you came.

(NOTE: I recommend saving about 20 shotgun shells for the end of the India 
levels. They'll come in handy taking care of the powerful "boss" character.)

Above and behind the quad bike is a small opening containing MP5 clips and 
flares. Pick those up then get on the bike and ride around almost to where 
you climbed down the ladders. Jump the bike over the river from the little 
hill into the tunnel on the other side.

(NOTE: To get up some extra speed use "turbo": hold the brake--same key as 
Sprint--and press Action to rev the engine. Then release the brake and go.)

Ride through the tunnel, past the pit on the left. Park and get off the 
bike before the next gap. (NOTE: To dismount, press Roll + Left/Right.) 
Climb down the ladder into the pit to get SECRET #2--shotgun shells, flares 
and a large med-pack. Climb back up and ride over the pit. Continue to an 
area with several ramps. Jump the first gap, turn left and jump the next 
gap. Park the bike near the gold gate. Climb down then up to the top of the 
first ramp. Jump to the opening on the left.

Follow the passage. There's a cobra just around the first bend. Kill it and 
continue. Soon you'll come to a hole in the floor above the gold gate and 
bike. Jump over it. Continue, killing another cobra and picking up the 
small med-pack nearby. Drop through the next opening, kill 2 monkeys, grab 
the save/power-up crystal and press the button to open the gold gate.

Drive through the gate and choose your path at the fork. The LEFT PATH 
skirts the ruins and allows you to find all the secrets. The RIGHT PATH 
leads into the ruins and bypasses one of the secrets.

ALONG THE RIVER (left at the fork): Ride up the main path. Jump the next 
large gap on the right side and quickly cut to the right to keep from 
falling into the chasm. Ride forward slowly, hugging the right wall past 
the hole. Continue to the opening on the left. Ride down onto the stone 
bridge and dismount. Jump to the ledge on the right, where you'll find some 
Desert Eagle clips. The small opening above leads to SECRET #3--harpoons, 
Uzi clips and a save/power-up crystal. Return to the bike.

Continue forward, jumping the gap, and proceed to a fork. Drive down to the 
left and park. Walk forward past the ramp to an opening with a tree on the 
right. Go around the tree and jump to the root that sticks out over the 
river. Take a running jump to grab the rock ledge opposite. Pull up and 
take the Uzi clips. Shoot 2 vultures and return to the bike the way you came.

Slowly ride up and around the narrow ledge. Stay on the rocks when you come 
to the trees, or you'll fall through. Continue around to a straight-away 
with a small gap. Use turbo to jump the small gap and keep going over the 
river to the other side.

Dismount, grab the save/power-up crystal and climb down the rock ladder, 
getting off on the block on the right side. Kill the cobra, take the Desert 
Eagle clips and climb back up. Drive the bike around to the area above the 
cobra ledge. Now jump the river one more time. You'll end up in a rocky 
canyon on the other side, where you can leave the bike.

Slide down the slope near the left wall to land on a small ledge. Pick up 
the walk-through below at the **.

THE RUINS (right at the fork): Drive the quad bike down the rocky path and 
jump the river. Dismount, kill a monkey and pick up a small med-pack. Climb 
down into the hole. Go up the slope past a small opening on the right. At 
the top of the slope are two openings on the left. The first is partly 
concealed by greenery. Inside is a cobra and the FIRST GATE KEY. The second 
opening contains flares and Uzi clips.

Return down the slope and climb through the small opening (now on your 
left). This leads into the building. Kill 3 monkeys and pick up a small 
med-pack and shotgun shells (in the small alcove). Continue around to the 
left, where you'll see a relief of Ganesha (the Hindu god with the elephant 
head) and two locks in raised alcoves on either side. Continue underneath 
Ganesha to an alcove where you can climb up through the ceiling.

The next area has two locked gates and a pool of quicksand in the far right 
corner. There's a save/power-up crystal on the ledge opposite the 
quicksand, and a monkey lurking about. Climb up the rocks to the left of 
the first gate. Jump to the branch and from there to the opening in the wall.

Drop down on the other side and head toward the gate with quicksand around 
the bottom. There are shotgun shells in the high alcove opposite. Pull up 
at either end where it's lower. Return to the tree and climb the rocks 
below to jump to the branch. Walk across the branches, kill the monkey in 
the L-shaped alcove, and follow the ledge to an entrance into the building.

Go in past the opening in the floor to the next room. Kill 2 monkeys, pick 
up a rocket, Uzi clips and the SECOND GATE KEY. Then kill 2 more monkeys. 
Return to the hole in the floor and drop down on the side away from the 
fire-breathing statue. Kill another monkey. Go around to the left, kill yet 
another monkey, and push the button to open the small gate and a larger 
gate outside. This also lets in 3 more monkeys.

Exit through the small gate, climb the rocks, jump to the opening in the 
wall and drop down into the previous area. Drop into the hole behind the 
tree to re-enter the first building. Use the gate keys in the two locks to 
open the big gate outside. Go around to the right, past the torches, and 
crawl through the green opening where you entered. Return to the quad bike.

Drive the bike down into the hole. Follow the passage up the hill, through 
the gate and up to the ramp near the quicksand. Use turbo to jump the 
quicksand and sail through the second gate. Drive to the right past the 
tree and around the building to the opening in the green wall. Dismount and 
kill 2 monkeys.

You're now next to the river again. If you want to, you can go for a rather 
difficult pick-up. Jump to the tree root that juts out over the water. From 
there, take a running jump to the green stone ledge. Now make a tricky 
running jump across the water to grab the left edge of the tree root. 
(Angle this jump so Lara takes off from the peak of the ledge and grabs the 
left side of the root.) Take a standing jump to the other triangular area 
of root. From there, jump to the ledge. Pick up Uzi clips and harpoons. 
Take a running jump from the tree root closest to this ledge to grab the 
green ledge on the other side of the water. Take a running jump back to the 
first tree and return to the bike. Jump the bike across the river to the 
GREEN CAVE opening.

GREEN CAVE:  Kill 2 monkeys and get a save/power-up crystal. Now head to 
the left, past the opening that leads to the WATERFALL area, to arrive at 
the bottom of a ROCKY SLOPE.

(**) If you took the path ALONG THE RIVER (above), you'll enter this area 
by sliding down the ROCKY SLOPE. (NOTE: If you're using the PSX version, 
you can pick up another save crystal now by going through the opening at 
the bottom right of this area into the GREEN CAVE.)

ROCKY SLOPE:  Kill the pair of vultures. Find the jutting block along the 
rock wall. (You'll be standing just below it if you took the river path and 
slid down from above.) Take a standing jump from the edge of the flat spot 
below to grab onto it; pull up. Cross the ledge and jump to the next ledge, 
a path between two clumps of rocks. Go through to the other side and take a 
running jump to grab the high ledge opposite. Pull up and walk to the end 
of the ledge. There's another smaller ledge with a green opening in the 
cliff wall ahead. Take a running jump to land on the angled block just to 
the left of the opening. Slide back and grab the edge. Traverse to the 
right, pull up onto the ledge and crawl in to find SECRET #4--Desert Eagle 
clips and a small med-pack.

Crawl out of the cave and turn to the right. Take a running jump to the 
angled block near the wall and hold Jump to land on the ledge to the left. 
 From there, return to the ground the way you came.


WATERFALL:  Go through the opening on the right at the bottom of the ROCKY 
SLOPE into the GREEN CAVE. If you haven't already done so, kill the 2 
monkeys and get the save/power-up crystal.

At this point, it's impossible to jump back across the river to the RUINS, 
even if you use the quad bike. So continue to the end of the level. Go 
through the opening near the save crystal to the small pool. Cross the 
rocks on the left and jump the gap to the stone ledge. Kill 3 more 
vultures. (Notice the broken raft in the pool below the falls. Apparently 
your quarry came this way as well.) From the end of this ledge, jump to the 
small square ledge ahead. Safety drop to the ledge below and pick up 
harpoons and MP5 clips. Take a running jump across the pool to grab the 
crevice. Traverse to the right, pull up and craw into the cave. This is 
SECRET #5-- a save/power-up crystal, harpoons and shotgun shells. Back out 
and drop into the pool.

Swim down and grab the small med-pack on the bottom. Then climb out and go 
through the rocky passage behind the falls to finish the level.



INDIA PART 4: CAVES OF KALIYA

Kills: 15 Items: 8, plus the GRENADE LAUNCHER, the INFADA ARTIFACT and 2 
save/power-up crystals Secrets: none

Objectives: Make your way through the maze of corridors to the bottom of 
the level to take on your fellow explorer and claim the Infada artifact.

Walk-through: The beginning of this level is basically a three-tiered 
labyrinth. Below that is an anteroom and finally the room with the India 
boss, Tony. There are a number of paths you can take to reach the 
bottom.  The most direct route, which bypasses the middle level entirely, 
is marked with red dots.

UPPER LEVEL: Pit #1 contains flares. There is a cobra in one of the 
dead-end passages and Uzi clips near the opening down to the lower level. 
To get there, head left at the start of the level. To get to the middle 
level, go right at the beginning of the level, down a ramp (sprinting into 
either the alcove or the hallway at the end of the passageway to avoid 
being flattened by a boulder). Follow the passageway past another boulder 
trap and climb up into the middle level.

MIDDLE LEVEL: Pick-ups are shotgun shells, plus a small med-pack guarded by 
a cobra. Both of these are in dead-end passages in the area with the brown 
stone floors. There's also another cobra in the dead-end passage to the 
left as you enter from the boulder trap area. To get down to the lower 
level, locate the movable block in the middle of the level (between the 
three radiating passages with raised steps) and move it aside to open up a 
fourth passageway. Follow this to pit #3.

LOWER LEVEL: Enter via pit #2 (from the upper level) or pit #3 (from the 
middle level). There is a cobra in one of the dead-end passages and flares 
and a save/power-up crystal near pit #4, which leads to the end of the level.

At the bottom of pit #4 is a dark room containing 10 cobras. Drop a flare 
down into the pit then safety drop down. Kill the 4 cobras in the first 
area without stepping between the angled blocks. This sets off a boulder 
trap. When the first group of cobras are dead you can trip the trap and 
jump back into the clear area to get out of the way. Now advance into the 
next area and kill the remaining 6 cobras.

Continue past where the boulder landed and crawl through the low opening. 
Get the small med-pack and save/power-up crystal at the top of the ramp. 
Then slide down to meet the boss.

The boss, who you later find out is named TONY, stands on a small block in 
the center of a large room with stone platforms set in a pool of toxic 
liquid. As soon as you enter, he'll start warming up his fireball attack. 
If you have trouble killing him, try this: Draw your shotgun before you 
slide so you can start shooting right away. Take two or three shots from 
the ramp and first platform. Then jump to one of the larger platforms on 
the side and position Lara so she has room to side flip back and forth 
while facing him. Continue to pump him full of shotgun shells, jumping to 
the other side of the platform every time he launches an attack, and taking 
care not to fall into the pool.

Alternately, slide down and jump right onto the platform where Tony is 
standing. He'll send the fireballs up toward the ceiling, so you may need 
to sidestep left and right to avoid them as they fall. At close range, 
pistols work fine and shotgun blasts are even more effective (only about 
six or seven will do it). When he dies, he'll disappear in a huge 
explosion, leaving the INFADA ARTIFACT behind.

Before getting it, pick up a small med-pack, the GRENADE LAUNCHER (loaded 
with 4 grenades), plus 4 more grenades on the next platform. Take the 
artifact last to end the level.

An FMV sequence follows: Lara emerges from the ruins and sees a boat 
chugging down the river. The pilot calls out to her and she goes aboard. He 
apologizes for the unfortunate incident with Tony, who was one of his 
employees, and introduces himself as Doctor Willard. (He's the same guy we 
saw earlier in Antarctica and heard over the radio at the jungle camp.) He 
tells Lara he's inspired by the way she handled Tony and would like to 
offer her other work. She hesitates. Then he explains that the Infada 
artifact is actually one of four similar pieces fashioned from meteorite 
ore by Polynesians who settled an island off Antarctica. He scans the 
artifact and shows her an analysis of the material on his computer, 
explaining that the ore is unique, an unknown material. Lara asks how it 
ended up in India. He says his investigations led him to the diary of a 
sailor on Charles Darwin's ship, the HMS Beagle. Lara begins to read and we 
flash back to the voyage.

August 14, 1834.... The sailor writes that he's restless and hungry. He and 
a few of his mates go ashore on a hunting expedition and discover four 
mysterious objects in a cavern of ice. We see one piece, which resembles 
the Infada artifact but is shaped like a lizard. Before they can decide 
what to do with the pieces, a wolf attacks, killing one of the sailors. The 
rest barely manage to escape as the ice cavern collapses.

Willard informs Lara that of the original group that found the artifacts, 
only Stephen, the diarist, survived. His compatriots were killed for their 
pieces in India, the South Pacific and Nevada, and Stephen sold his 
artifact after returning to London. The doctor is hot to investigate the 
remaining three locations. Lara agrees to sign on.

(IMPORTANT NOTE: When you finish this level, you will be able to choose 
which area you want to go to next. Although you can play the three middle 
areas (Nevada, London and South Pacific) in any order you like, I strongly 
recommend playing Nevada first. If you don't mind a spoiler, read the 
beginning of the walk-through for the High Security Compound level.)

LONDON PART 1:  THAMES WHARF

Kills: 26 Items: 30, plus 2 keys and 8 save/power-up crystals Secrets: 5*

*Note that one of the pick-ups here will be the SHOTGUN if you didn't get 
it in the previous level. Be sure to find all the secrets so you can access 
the bonus level at the end of the game.

Objectives: Make your way across the rooftops and alleyways to the level's 
end in a bell tower. First you'll need to enter the building opposite to 
get the key to the flue room. There's a pair of buttons you need to press 
in the right sequence in order to raise a scaffold, enabling you to get to 
the flue room. Another button inside this room opens up a path to the next 
area, containing three large water tanks. Fill and empty the tanks in the 
proper sequence, opening underwater hatches as you go, to reach the last 
area--the roofs near the bell tower. Pick up a few useful items there and 
locate the exit.

NOTE: There are several shortcuts through this level. I will probably 
include them in an updated version of this walk-through. But, for now, I've 
described the long route for readers who want to cover everything.

Walk-through: You begin on a ledge high above street level. Before jumping 
across to the next building, take a detour for a secret.

ACROSS THE CRANE & BACK: At the place where the bridge meets the ledge 
you're on, take a running jump over the angled roof. (Set up this jump with 
one step and one hop back from the base of the roof.) In the low area 
behind, you'll find shotgun shells and a save/power-up crystal. Backtrack 
and use the corner block to climb out onto the brown metal ledge. Cross the 
roof and jump onto the crane. Walk down the arm and drop down onto the 
dangling gray block. Position Lara at the middle of the block, facing the 
crane body. Walk off the edge to land on the roof below, taking a small 
amount of damage. Slide down the roof, grab the edge, and let go to land in 
an alcove clear of barbed wire. Walk through the barbed wire and follow the 
hallway to SECRET #1--a rocket and small med-pack guarded by 2 rats.

(Alternately, jump from the gray block dangling from the crane to the 
nearest ledge--on the right if Lara's back is to the body of the crane. 
Climb down the yellowish grating and drop to the cement ledge below. Take a 
standing jump from the MIDDLE of the ledge to the alcove below, so as not 
to slide into the barbed wire.)

Exit the hallway and climb out of the barbed wire onto the block at the 
left corner. Climb onto the ledge above, then up the yellow grating ladder. 
Jump over to the dangling block then climb onto the arm of the crane. Turn 
around and take a running jump through the break in the railing diagonally 
to the right, to land on a ledge. Jump to the small, square ledge ahead. 
Pull up and slide into the area where you found the shells and save 
crystal. Again, climb up the block onto the metal ledge. Turn around and 
jump to grab the top of the wall on the right. Traverse to the left until 
you're behind the ledge where you started. Pull up and slide onto that ledge.

ALLEYS AND BUILDINGS NEAR THE START OF THE LEVEL: Go to the right end of 
the ledge. Hop down onto the square grate below, then down to the angled 
roof. Grab the end, pull up and back flip onto the ledge behind. Kill a 
crow that makes a fuss. Throw the switch to raise a green trapdoor on the 
outside of the building across the way.

Now cross over. You're probably keen on using the zip line, so go that way 
now since you won't be able to later on. Use the overhead grating to 
traverse to the next ledge where the handle is. Ride the zip line down to 
the roof, let go and press Action again to grab the roof as you slide back. 
Release and grab the crevice below. Traverse to the right, pull up onto the 
green trapdoor, and kill the guy with the gun. Pick up the small med-pack 
he drops.

Enter the room beyond. Jump to the first ledge, but watch out for the 
breakaway tiles on the far side. You may be able to kill 2 rats on the far 
ledge from here before taking a running jump over to it. Follow the 
hallway, subdue the man at the end and take his FLUE ROOM KEY.

Return to the ledge with the dead rats, drop and hang from the edge, then 
let go and grab the ledge below. Pull up and press the button to open a 
trapdoor near the entrance. Drop to the ledge below to get some harpoons. 
Safety drop to the ground and pick up a small med-pack in the rubble from 
the broken tile, plus some flares in one corner and a save/power-up crystal 
in another. Use the button to open the trapdoor above the ladder and climb 
up. From the top ledge, jump to grab the horizontal crevice on the left. 
Traverse to the right, drop to the ledge and jump to grab the ledge at the 
entrance.

Use the switch outside to lower the green trapdoor. Drop to the ledge 
below. Kill the crow. Now check out the various small openings in the 
wall--two are accessible from the ledge. Jump up to grab the opening on the 
right. Traverse to the right to the second and third openings. They contain 
2 boxes of shotgun shells, SECRET #2. (NOTE: If you don't already have the 
SHOTGUN, you'll get it here instead of one of the boxes of shells.) 
Traverse back to the ledge.

Now crawl into the left opening. Follow the tunnel up to a ledge high above 
another alley. Across the way you'll note painters' scaffolding. Hop across 
to the button and press it to uncover another button elsewhere.
Return via the crawlspace to the ledge below the green trapdoor. Drop down 
onto the steeply angled roof at the left side. Grab the edge and drop onto 
the crates. Take out the gunman lurking across the way. Then pick up 
flares, Uzi clips and a save/power-up crystal. Climb the tall stack of 
crates. Jump to grab the block ledge. Climb the yellow grate up the side of 
the building, then two more similar ladders to reach the top. Jump over to 
the ledge where you started.

Climb down to the trapdoor switch as you did earlier. This time, take a 
running jump across the alley to land on the roof with the small med-pack.

Grab the crevice in the wall and traverse to the right. Climb up and take 
the path to the right. This leads to a gap near the alley with the 
scaffolding. Jump the gap, go around back and kill a crow. Pick up the 
large med-pack and press the button (this is the one you uncovered earlier) 
to raise the scaffolding.

Return to the gap above the alley, jump to grab the other side and pull up. 
 From here, take a running jump to the scaffolding. Shoot another crow. Now 
jump from the scaffolding into the doorway of the FLUE ROOM. Pick up the 
flares and use the key to get in.

Take the save/power-up crystal and use the button to turn off a burner 
elsewhere and turn the fire on in here. Time a run past the flames, climb 
out and take a standing jump back onto the scaffolding. Safety drop to the 
metal ledge and return, via the crawlspace, to the other side of the building.

Drop down and climb up the ladders to the starting ledge. Again, jump 
across to the roof where you got the small med-pack and traverse to the 
right. This time there is a gunman on the right-hand path. Take care of 
him, then climb onto the higher ledge and follow that path to an opening 
above a burner (this is the one you turned off in the flue room). Jump over 
the opening to grab the ledge, pull up and take the shotgun shells. Go to 
the left, turn around and safety drop off the angled roof to land on a 
ledge with a rocket. This is SECRET #3. Climb the ladder, jump to the flat 
spot above, then jump over the hole to the walkway below.

Now, drop down into the hole. Slide down the ramp to emerge on a small 
ledge in the alley with the scaffolding. Jump the gap (using Action to land 
in the doorway) and follow the vent, picking up a save/power-up crystal and 
large med-pack and killing 2 rats on the way.

INDUSTRIAL AREA WITH THREE LARGE WATER TANKS: At the bottom is a control 
room with an armed guard on duty. When he's out of the way, take a look 
around. Note the switch and two covered buttons. Down the long hallway are 
three humongous water tanks. At the start tank #1 (closest to the button 
room) is half full, and tank #2 (middle) is empty. So, you're unable to get 
to tank #3, which can only be accessed by swimming across tank #2.

Use the switch to fill tanks #1 and #2. Jump into tank #2, retrieve a small 
med-pack and Uzi clips, and pull the underwater lever to open a hatch in 
tank #1.

Go back to the switch and use it again to lower the water levels. Jump into 
tank #1 and swim down through the hatch you just opened. The propellers are 
moving more slowly now, so you can swim past them into the next room. (If 
you hadn't pulled the switch, Lara would be shredded.) Climb out of the 
water, take out the guard, and follow the hallway to the end where you'll 
find a box of shotgun shells. Kill the 2 rats in the crawlspace and go 
through it, picking up a small med-pack.

In the next room you'll find a robot with live electric cables twirling in 
front of it. Yes, it is lethal. As you enter, you receive a "vision" of the 
electrical panel in a nearby alcove. That's a hint. What you must do is 
trick the robot into shocking the electrical panel.

If you're playing the PSX version, you'll probably want to go to the far 
right end of the track first to get the save/power-up crystal. (The button 
there turns on the lights, but it makes no difference whether or not you 
press it.)

When the robot heads for the end of the room where the save crystal was, go 
to the opposite end and pull out the movable metal box. Make sure you stand 
aside when the robot returns. If it touches the box while Lara is touching 
it, she'll be electrocuted. Move the box down the track until it is at the 
T intersection of the long path and the crosswise path near the electrical 
panel. When the robot comes along, it will bump into the box then turn 
around and drive into the alcove, frying the electrical panel, thus opening 
one of the button covers above.

Go into the hallway where you entered and climb the grating to get back 
into the button room. Press the button you just uncovered to fill tank #3. 
Then kill the guard who arrives on the scene. Use the switch again to 
refill tank #2 and swim across it to the doorway leading to tank #3.

Swim across tank #3 to the far ledge. Another guard comes out, so you'll 
have to take care of him. (Try to ignore the alarms. There doesn't seem to 
be a way to turn them off.) Go inside and use the button to raise the cover 
on the second button back in the other room. You'll also find this drains 
tank #3.

(** NOTE: It is possible, using a carefully angled running jump, to land 
Lara in the small, square, water-filled opening at the bottom of tank #3. 
However, you won't be able to finish the level. When you reach the next 
area, the exit will be too far above the water level to reach.

Exit the room where the guard came out, climb onto the walkway to the left 
and go to about the middle. Above you'll see grates on the ceiling that you 
can use to traverse across the empty pool. Drop to the ledge, kill 2 rats, 
and get the small med-pack and save/power-up crystal. Follow the 
passageway, pick up a large med-pack and drop into tank #2. Swim to the 
door. Take out another guard in the hallway and go push that last button, 
on the right above the raised cement area. This opens a hatch in the bottom 
of tank #3. Swim down through it. Take the harpoons and follow the 
underwater passage to a lovely flooded edifice.

LOVELY FLOODED EDIFICE: In two of the corners underwater you'll find 
shotgun shells and a small med-pack. Get them and climb out into the 
doorway. (NOTE: If you find you can't climb out because the water level is 
too low, you'll need to go back to an earlier save, or restart the level. 
Next time, be sure to flood the third water tank, which also raises the 
water level in this area. See the note on this above at the **.)

Kill the thug and take his small med-pack, plus the save/power-up crystal 
in the alcove. Jump over the barbed wire to grab the grating. Climb up, 
walk through more barbed wire and jump to grab the small platform on the 
side of the crane. Pull up. Turn right and take a running jump to grab the 
ledge topped with still more barbed wire. Pull up and walk carefully to the 
right where you can jump up to a flat spot.

CATHEDRAL ROOF & BELL TOWER: Cross the roof and climb up on the other side. 
Don't go all the way up to the walkway yet. Instead, head to the right. 
Cross over the peak of the low roof and slide down the back on the right. 
There's a trench filled with barbed wire, but you'll find a safe spot at 
the right end where you can safety drop down. Walk through the wire to pick 
up some Desert Eagle clips and return the way you came.

When you come around the ledge outside the bell tower area, you'll 
encounter 2 gunmen you'll need to take out. Now find the movable block at 
the center (where the four paths converge) and pull it twice. Use it to 
climb to the shingled ledge above. In a depression behind the ledge, 
there's a large med-pack. Get it, climb out and take a running jump across 
the gap to a similar depression where you'll find SECRET #4--the CATHEDRAL KEY.

(NOTE: You won't actually use this key, and it will disappear from your 
inventory, but it counts as a secret toward the bonus level. It shows Lara 
on the ledge above the movable block. The arrow indicates the path of the 
running jump to where the key is. When you do this jump, be sure to set it 
up so Lara jumps right at the edge. Her feet will nick the top of the roof 
on the other side, but holding the Forward key through the entire jump will 
keep her from sliding back.)

Go back to the walkway outside. In the front corner farthest from the 
crane, there is a ladder leading down. Climb down, drop down several 
ledges, and you'll find SECRET #5--a crawlspace containing a large 
med-pack. Climb up the way you came. Follow the walkway to the left and 
jump down at the break in the railing to end the level.

A cut scene follows: Lara subdues a sniper in the bell tower. When she 
interrogates him, he says he works for a woman named Sophia Leigh. Lara 
wants to know who she is and what she does, but the man pleads ignorance. 
He says he merely kills people for her, as his father and grandfather did 
before him. Lara asks how old this woman is. The thug says she's in her 
late 20's or early 30's. Lara is understandably skeptical. Then the guy 
tells Lara he gets a bonus for some special targets, such as herself.

"I could even retire from you," he says.

"Then you might want to mind. . . the bell," Lara replies, as the ringing 
bell knocks the man off the tower. She wishes him a "happy retirement," 
then slides into Aldwych station.



LONDON PART 2:  ALDWYCH

Kills: 29 Items: 41, plus 3 keys, Masonic Mallet, Ornate Star, Old Penny, 
Ticket, UZIS, ROCKET LAUNCHER and 9 save/power-up crystals Secrets: 5

Be sure to find all the secrets so you can access the bonus level at the 
end of the game. Note that the pick-ups in this level will include the 
SHOTGUN and MP5 ASSAULT RIFLE if you didn't get them in a previous level.

Objectives: Make your way through an abandoned tube station to the secret 
lair of a mysterious brotherhood known as the Damned. First, find the 
maintenance key, which will help you get an old penny. Locate two Solomon's 
keys, which will unlock a door within the temple so you can get the Masonic 
Mallet. Buy a ticket with your penny and use it to gain access to another 
area, where you can use the mallet to (indirectly) get to the level exit. 
In the process, you may discover some additional items and secrets, and 
you'll find out more about the ageless Miss Sophia Leigh.

Walk-through: The level begins with Lara falling down a hole from the bell 
tower above. Grab the end of the first slope. Release Action and press it 
again to drop to the slope below, slide and grab the opening opposite. Pull 
up and claim a box of shells (NOTE: if you don't already have the SHOTGUN, 
you'll get it here instead of the shells.)

Drop into the water, climb out and go up the stairs. On the third landing, 
shoot out the vent. Behind it is a save/power-up crystal and a ladder 
leading up to a room with red girders. Kill the gang member lurking in the 
corner and pick up a bunch of goodies--flares, shotgun shells, and Uzi 
clips. (NOTE: Again, if you don't already have the SHOTGUN, you'll get it 
here instead of the shells.) You'll find out more about these guys, the 
"Damned," in the cut scene following this level.

Go around to the left and pull the movable block with the metal coils. Drop 
down through the opening onto one of the ticket machines. Shoot another 
thug from above. Hop onto the next machine and climb up the back of the 
movable block into a passageway. Drop/climb down into the ticket booth, 
where you'll find a large med-pack and MAINTENANCE KEY. Press the button to 
exit. Pick up a small med-pack from the guy you killed.

As you've probably surmised, you're now inside the abandoned Aldwych tube 
station. On the other side of the ticket machines are four doors. Beyond 
are escalators leading down to two train platforms.

RIGHT SIDE ESCALATORS: First, go through one of the doors on the right and 
down the escalator. Jump the pit at the bottom. (Use a running jump on the 
right side; the ceiling is too low on the left side.) Kill the masked thug 
and his mangy dog and use the key to open the MAINTENANCE ROOM at the end 
of the platform. Press the button inside to turn on the lights and pick up 
Uzi clips and a small med-pack. Exit and go to the other end of the 
platform, where you'll find an OLD PENNY near the illuminated sign.

WOODEN CRATE ROOM: Go back to the pit at the bottom of the escalators and 
safety drop into it. Head to the left (when facing the escalators above) 
and sprint into the doorway on the right to avoid an oncoming train. Inside 
is a red-lit room with numerous wooden crates. Take out the 2 angry gang 
members. Pick up the small med-pack on the floor and the save/power-up 
crystal in the corner. When you climb back over the crates, a dog will 
attack, so ready those guns. (NOTE: The button behind the crates on the 
other side of the room turns on the alarms but does nothing else.)

Now climb/jump up to the level with the angled box. Side flip onto the 
slope and jump to grab the grate ahead. Climb up and back flip onto the 
ledge behind. Kill another thug who's lurking in back of the boxes. Relieve 
him of his small med-pack. Jump over to the small square ledge ahead and 
left of the red light on the ceiling. Take a running jump with Action to 
land on the ledge ahead on the right, behind the grating ladder you just 
climbed up. You'll find the UZIS here if you don't already have them. If 
you do, this will be Uzi clips instead. Take a standing jump down to the 
boxes on the left, or safety drop to the floor.

Return to the top where you killed the gang member. Jump up to grab the 
grating on the ceiling and traverse forward, then right. Drop to the ledge. 
Climb into the doorway. Turn around and jump to grab the ledge, where 
you'll find a rocket. Now get in the doorway below the drill and, if you 
didn't do it down below, SAVE YOUR GAME.

DRILL ROOM: Slide backwards down the ramp and grab the end. Let go and drop 
to the break-away tiles. Jump to the left onto the slope, then slide and 
jump to grab the horizontal crevice opposite. Traverse to the right and 
drop to more  break-away tiles. Fall through onto the slope below, grab the 
end and pull up. Jump, twisting in mid-air, to land on the opposite slope 
facing uphill. Slide and grab the end. Drop and grab quickly three more 
times and pull up into the alcove with the save/power-up crystal and MP5 
clips. This is SECRET #1. Needless to say, all this has to be done speedily 
as the huge drill is bearing down on you from above. (NOTES: The secret 
area will contain the MP5 ASSAULT RIFLE itself if you don't already have 
it. And, in case you've forgotten that mid-air twist, it's Jump + Roll--Alt 
+ End on the PC.)

Follow the ramps to the bottom for a large med-pack. Then climb/jump back 
up to the middle level with the gray tiled floor. Climb up through the 
opening in the ceiling into a brick area. There's a small pool (which 
doesn't lead anywhere but comes in handy if Lara catches fire) and a 
save/power-up crystal around the corner. Climb up the grating onto a ledge 
with flames billowing across it. Be sure to stand at the edge to avoid 
catching fire. Take a standing jump up to the higher ledge and the flames 
will extinguish. Climb up a little farther for a small med-pack. Vault onto 
the sloped ledge, walk to the other end, then take a diagonal standing jump 
to grab the next grating ladder. Climb up until Lara's feet are on the 
first silver stripe and back flip to land in the alcove behind. Press the 
button to open a trapdoor back in the WOODEN CRATE ROOM. This also turns on 
another flame at the top of the grating ladder. Jump to grab the grating, 
climb up, then immediately crouch. Crawl across the ledge to get the Uzi 
clips, then safety drop off the other side.

Follow the stairs to a low, dark room above the tracks. At the far end is a 
rat, a large med-pack and some shotgun shells. Get the goodies, then safety 
drop through the opening to the platform below.

Again, drop down into the pit to the lower tracks and go to the WOODEN 
CRATE ROOM. Use the grates on the ceiling to traverse back to the drill 
area. Walk over the drill and climb into the next passageway, where you'll 
find the FIRST SOLOMON'S KEY. Unfortunately, you'll need to take the long 
way back: Follow the passageway to the room above the tracks where you were 
a few minutes ago. Drop to the tracks, then drop down to the lower tracks 
and return to the WOODEN CRATE ROOM.

[IMPORTANT WARNING: A few people have informed me of a bug in both the PC 
and PlayStation version where the drill does not stay level with the 
doorway but sinks far below, making it impossible to walk across it to get 
the Solomon's Key.

[UPDATE: Huw L. suggested an alternate fix: He found that when he went 
through the trapdoor at the top of the wooden crate room to the area with 
the three timed doors (below) before crossing the drill to get the 
Solomon's Key, the drill bug was activated and he couldn't get the key. 
Howe1ver, when he went to the drill BEFORE going up to the three timed 
doors, no bug.]

ROOM WITH ROLL-DOWN DOORS: Climb/jump up to the trapdoor you just opened. 
Enter and take out the thug and his dog. Get some shells on a ledge above 
where you came in (back flip off this ledge or jump while pressing Action) 
and some MP5 clips in the room to the side. You'll notice two closed doors 
as well. One contains the final secret of the game. You'll be back to get 
it later. (The roll-down doors at the top of the two flights of stairs 
don't open.) For now, fall through the break-away tiles and pull the 
movable box that's blocking the trapdoor above.

THREE TIMED DOORS: Go down through the trapdoor and follow the passage. One 
way leads back to the room you were just in. The other leads to a network 
of passages ending in a room with a pool and three doors. There are 2 
buttons on the wall down the hallway. These open the doors, which are timed 
to close before you get there. ;-) Here's the drill:

RIGHT DOOR: Press the right button. Press Look if it's your first time 
through to kill the "vision" of the door opening. Roll and run up the 
hallway to the room with the doors. Use sprint on the straight-aways but 
release it for better cornering. Run around the left side of the pool then 
straight on to the door on the right. (It is possible to jump the pool but 
more often than not you end up falling in.) Once inside, press the button 
to lower a trapdoor in the middle room. Slide down the ramps and follow the 
passage back to the buttons, picking up some flares on the way.

MIDDLE DOOR: Press the right button again. Repeat the same run to the 
middle door. Once inside, climb up through the trapdoor, press the button 
to open another trapdoor in the left room, and follow the hallway to drop 
down near the pair of buttons.

LEFT DOOR: Press the left button. The timer here is even faster, but if you 
sprint on the straight parts as you did before, you'll make it in time. 
Once inside, use the ceiling grates to traverse over the pool. Drop and 
grab the ledge. Pull up into the alcove and get shotgun shells a 
save/power-up crystal and the SECOND SOLOMON'S KEY.

Follow the underwater tunnel to emerge back in the ticket area. Kill the 
thug waiting for you then use your penny in the fourth machine from the 
ticket window to buy yourself a TICKET. (NOTE: Don't forget to pick up the 
ticket when it drops out of the machine onto the floor.)

LEFT SIDE ESCALATORS: This time, exit through the doors on the left. The 
escalators here lead down to a platform with a huge pile of dirt. One of 
the Damned emerges and attacks here. Beyond the dirt pile is a vent you can 
shoot out to access SECRET #2--a pit containing shotgun shells.

If you want to, you can run up the stairs and kill a rabid dog so he won't 
surprise you later when you emerge through the closed door at the top.

Kill the 2 rats on the tracks. Then jump down and go to the right. Another 
thug comes out of a door and ducks into another. Follow him quickly so as 
not to be hit by an oncoming train. Use the button inside to open two doors 
outside. The one on the right contains a save/power-up crystal, the one on 
the left leads to a pool and a closed door.

MASONIC TEMPLE: The area leading to the temple is a maze of passages, doors 
and button. And you'll probably want to save your game here in case you get 
lost or misplaced. Slog through the pool and push the button to open the 
door. Take the first right, then turn right again. Push the button here 
(B). Turn around go back to the left, then go to the right down the long 
corridor. At the end, just to the left is another button (C); push it. 
[Don't push the one at the end of this hall (D).] Turn around and come back 
up the long hallway. The doors on the right are now open. Go inside and 
pick up a small med-pack in the dark alcove. Now press the left button (F), 
but not the right (E). Exit this room through the door on the right and 
walk straight across the hallway. Turn right to face the first button you 
pushed after entering (B). Push it again (it should be red now). Turn 
around and walk forward then to the right down a newly opened hallway. 
Follow it, passing two alcoves containing another small med-pack and MP5 
clips. Continue to the inner sanctum of the Masonic temple.

Enter and go to the right. Use your two Solomon's keys in the keyholes to 
open doors at the front and back of the room. Go around the corner and pick 
up a save/power-up crystal and the long-awaited UZIS on the floor opposite 
the red chairs. (If you already have them, youíll get Uzi clips here instead.)

Head for the back of the room, taking care to avoid the break-away floor 
tiles with spikes below. Run over the tiles into the little room you just 
opened. Grab the MASONIC MALLET and take a standing jump over the spikes to 
grab the edge. Pull up. Kill the dog that charges from the left. Then go 
back to the corner with the floor-length purple curtain and break-away 
tile. (Don't worry; there are no spikes below this time.) Go behind the 
curtain to get the ORNATE STAR and some MP5 clips.

Exit the temple through the small door in the opposite corner, which opened 
when you used the keys. Pick up a small med-pack and flares, then follow 
the underwater passage to a room with several cement ledges. Climb onto the 
block near the upper entrance and take a running jump to grab the crevice. 
Crawl through and drop down to the ledge with the railing. Climb onto the 
higher ledge and take a standing jump from the corner to grab the grate in 
the ceiling. Traverse to the wall, then drop and grab the small opening. 
Pull up and crawl through.

TURNSTILE: Use your ticket in the turnstile to gain access to the next 
room. You may be able to kill 2 rats inside from the doorway. If not, take 
care of them, and the club-toting goon at the same time. Confiscate the 
goon's small med-pack. Then go around the row of turnstiles and use the 
Ornate Star to unlock the room with the campfire inside. (NOTE: If you're 
having difficulty unlocking the door, stand right at the middle of it, 
rather than facing the lock.)  Another thug rushes out. Kill him before he 
flambťes Lara, then enter.

This is SECRET #3. Climb through the opening in the ceiling. Follow the 
passage to drop down into a room containing a save/power-up crystal. The 
door opens automatically, and you're back at the landing above the pool. 
(Kill that nasty dog in the stairwell now if you didn't earlier.) Do the 
jump-climb-traverse thing to get back to the TURNSTILE room.

This time go to the right, down the escalator. Use the Masonic Mallet to 
open the door at the bottom. Get the rocket in the crawlspace above. (This 
is SECRET #4.) Then press the button to open a trapdoor inside the TRAIN 
CAR nearby.

Exit and go down into the hole on the left. As you approach, the door on 
the right opens and a thug comes out to pound on Lara. Subdue him and 
relieve him of a small med-pack. (NOTE: The ENCLOSED WALKWAY he came out of 
leads down to the platform below the RIGHT SIDE ESCALATORS, but don't go 
that way yet.) Continue down the tunnel. Jump the gap, kill the dog a 
little farther on, and continue down the stairs to the platform.

TRAIN CAR: Shoot the goon before he has a chance to hurt Lara. He'll leave 
another small med-pack. There's also a save/power-up crystal in the alcove, 
flares on top of the train car, and large med-pack and shotgun shells in a 
hole in the mud-filled, bat-infested tunnel beyond the campfire.

Go back up the stairs to the hole. Drop down and follow the tunnel to the 
trapdoor under the train. Climb up into the train car. Push the button to 
cause a tremor and open another trapdoor. Drop through it and follow the 
tunnel to an open hallway with alcoves along the right side. Proceed 
forward, but DON'T SHOOT the gang member who dashes out of an alcove. 
Instead, follow him around the corner and let him open a door for you. 
He'll return with a buddy. Now you can kill them both. (NOTE: If you kill 
the first guy before he opens the door, you'll have no hope of getting the 
final secret.)

Go into the room the thug opened, pick up a rocket and press the 2 buttons. 
One opens the second trapdoor in the train; the other opens a door in the 
ROLL-DOWN DOORS ROOM.

Backtrack past the alcoves (pick up a small med-pack in the last) toward 
where you came in. Go right and up through the trapdoor into the train car. 
Press the button again, go through the other trapdoor and follow the tunnel 
to the opening. Take the ENCLOSED WALKWAY across the tracks. Go down the 
ramp to the platform, drop into the pit, go to the WOODEN CRATE ROOM, and 
climb up through the trapdoor. Enter the newly opened door on the 
right--SECRET #5. Kill another bad guy, and pick up a huge cache of 
goodies: MP5 clips, Desert Eagle clips, a large med-pack and the ROCKET 
LAUNCHER. Now, wasn't that worth the walk? :-)

Press the button to re-open the trapdoor into the TRAIN CAR. Then exit. You 
may encounter another thug on the far side of the big room when you leave. 
(NOTE: He doesn't always appear. Perhaps it depends on how you approach.) 
Return to the train. The quickest route is probably down into the WOODEN 
CRATE ROOM, across the ceiling grates to the drill, down onto the tracks, 
up the ramp, across the ENCLOSED WALKWAY, down into the hole, up through 
the train, and down into the hallway where you killed the 2 guys who opened 
the door for you.

Now exit the level by going down either of the ramps.

A cut scene follows: Lara falls into the lair of the Damned and finds 
herself before their leader. He correctly guesses that she's looking for 
Miss Leigh. But obviously not for revenge, he says, since she hasn't got 
the face for it. Lara asks if he has, and the masked man replies 
caustically that he doesn't even have a face. He says he took a job as a 
research assistant in Miss Leigh's cosmetic company. And, after taking part 
in a failed experiment to discover the secret of eternal beauty, he and the 
others ended up faceless monstrosities. The supreme irony, he explains, is 
that when he tried to take his own life, he found it didn't work. He 
strikes a deal with Lara: If she brings him some embalming fluid from the 
natural history museum, he and his friends will help her get to Sophia Leigh.

RECOMMENDED READING: If you enjoyed the ambience of this level as much as I 
did, you might want to check out Neil Gaiman's book Neverwhere, a novel 
about a more-regular-than-regular guy who falls through the cracks of 
"normal" society and ends up in the mysterious realm of "London Below." 
It's full of abandoned tube stations, sewers, secret doors and passageways, 
etc. A completely fabulous book, which I recommend highly. In case you 
haven't heard of him, Neil is the guy who did the Sandman and Stardust 
graphic novels and The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish.



LONDON PART 3:  LUD'S GATE

Kills: 19  Items: 53, plus a key, EMBALMING FLUID, the HARPOON GUN and 11 
save/power-up crystals*   Secrets: 6

*Numbers are approximate and depend on which route you take. Be sure to 
find all the secrets so you can access the bonus level at the end of the 
game. Note that the pick-ups in this level will include the ROCKET LAUNCHER 
and SHOTGUN if you didn't get them earlier.

Objectives: Sneak into the Natural History Museum and steal some embalming 
fluid for your immortal friends. This will grant you access to the second 
part of the level. Here you'll need to navigate a series of water-filled 
areas and locate a key to unlock a door to the final area--the building 
where Sophia Leigh has her office. This is where the last London level begins.

Walk-through: In case it wasn't obvious from the previous cut scene, the 
Damned are now your friends, so don't shoot at them.

THE LAIR OF THE DAMNED: Turn and follow the guy with the torch down the 
plank walkways to a room with several shallow pools. Exit through the 
doorway on the LEFT. (The right doorway will get you where you're going, 
but you'll miss a secret.)

(NOTE: Some people have had the gang member who leads Lara to the exit 
attack her apparently without provocation. To avoid this, it may help to go 
around the outside edge of the shallow pools rather than following the man 
across the center bridge.)

INSIDE THE NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM: Slide down the ramp and quickly pull up 
into the opening on the right before the spiked ceiling descends and 
crushes Lara. Slide down into a small room. On the right you'll see a 
button. This opens the trapdoor ahead on the left. Don't go there yet. 
First, walk over to the left onto a white rock ledge. Go to the right end 
of the rocks and drop down to the small brick ledge. Safety drop down to a 
clear area in the barbed wire. Walk to the other end and climb into the 
crevice. Inside are a large med-pack and flares--SECRET #1. To get out, 
climb onto the ledge above where you got the med-pack, then up to the next 
ledge. Turn around and take a diagonal standing jump to grab the edge of 
the opening, pull up, and slide down to the white rocks where you started. 
Or, take a running jump from the ledge through the opening.

Go back into the little room. Press the button if you didn't earlier. This 
opens the trapdoor above. Climb up and scale the grating to just above the 
third silver strip. Back flip into the passage behind and pick up a large 
med-pack. (This is the way you would have come had you taken the right door 
initially.)

Jump back to the grate and climb up and over to the left side. Be careful 
not to drop into the barbed wire. Position Lara's hands on the grate just 
below the opening with the purplish-red light. Jump and twist in the air to 
grab the grate behind (Jump + Roll + Action). Climb up and crawl into the 
crack for SECRET #2--a rocket. (NOTE: If you have trouble making Lara climb 
into the opening, release Action and quickly press it again so she loses 
her foothold but grabs the ledge again. Then press Forward to pull up. If 
this doesn't work, try pressing Crouch + Forward while holding Action. Also 
note that if you don't already have the ROCKET LAUNCHER, you'll get it here 
instead of the rocket.)

Climb down the grate to just above the wooden slope and jump, twist and 
grab the black grate behind. Climb up farther until Lara's feet are just 
below the top of the green-lit area. Back flip into the opening with the 
save/power-up crystal and shotgun shells. (NOTE: if you don't already have 
the SHOTGUN, you'll get it here instead of the shells.) Slide down the 
slope and jump to grab the grate. Climb all the way to the top.

DUCTS ABOVE EGYPTIAN AREA: Go through the crawlspace to the end. You'll 
find more shotgun shells in an opening on the right, but don't go all the 
way through. There's a guard in the hall beyond. Instead, backtrack to the 
point where you can stand up. Climb into the duct, pick up a small med-pack 
and drop down into the next room. Kill the guard here. Use the button to 
open the door, and kill the second guard in the hallway.

EGYPTIAN AREA OFFICE & EXHIBIT: Pull/push the movable block onto the gray 
square. This will cause the tall pillar blocking the door to the next room 
to slide away. Go into the hall and to the right to enter this area. Get a 
small med-pack on a ledge in the back. Climb the stepped blocks to the 
doorway between the wooden ladders. Push the movable block there so it's in 
front of the door. This will move the tall pillar outside back in front of 
the outer door. Climb over the movable block and drop down on the other side.

Go out to the top step and turn left. Take a standing jump to grab the 
wooden slats on the ceiling. Traverse forward and left, then drop to grab 
the edge of the alcove with a save/power-up crystal. Pull up, get the 
crystal, then safety drop to the ground. Climb back up the blocks, jump to 
grab the wooden slats on the ceiling again and this time head for the 
alcove on the right. Drop, grab the ledge, pull up and crawl into the 
alcove. Use the switch to open a door high above. Then, climb out and drop 
down to the floor.

Climb up the movable pillar in front of the door. Pull up onto the ledge 
above and go through the crawl space. The ducts lead you back to the 
hallway. Move the block in the computer room again to slide the pillar back 
from the entrance. Go back to the EGYPTIAN AREA.

Climb onto the movable pillar. Grab the ledge above, pull up and jump (with 
Action) to the ledge on the right with the switch. Pull it to close the 
door of the movable block room creating a climbable ladder. Climb up this 
ladder and onto the ledge on the left. Turn around and take a standing jump 
(with Action) to the block ahead on the left and another standing jump-grab 
to the doorway. Go into the alcove on the left, which contains shotgun 
shells and flares. Then cross over to the opposite alcove and go around the 
corner to a slope.

Slide down and jump at the end to grab the ledge across the gap. (Or, if 
you have difficulty timing this jump, slide down backwards, grab the edge, 
pull up and do a jump-twist--Jump + Roll + Action--to catch the ledge 
behind.) Continue to another ramp. Slide down to land on the break-away 
tiles. Immediately jump forward and grab the ledge between the sarcophagi. 
Pull up and take the EMBALMING FLUID.

(NOTE: There's a shortcut you can take here. Turn around and jump to the 
remaining break-away tiles on the left. Fall through and hold Action to 
grab the lowest slope. Traverse to the left and drop to a flat spot with a 
rocket on it. Then fall down the hole into the water. Pick up the 
walk-through below at the **. If you go this way, however, you'll miss a 
lot of action and two secrets. And, your friends will never get their 
precious embalming fluid. If you want to, you can come back later for this 
rocket. See the tip below at the ***.)

Crawl through the duct, picking up some Uzi clips on the way, and back out 
into the hallway. Kill the guard around the corner and go back around the 
corner to the crawlspace. There's another guard on duty in the next room. 
Take care of him, then use the button to open the doors and get a rocket. 
Go around the stone blocks and drop down onto a ledge high above the SPHINX 
ROOM.

SPHINX ROOM: Take a standing jump to grab the ceiling grates. Traverse 
across to the other side to get a save/power-up crystal. Rather than 
traversing back across the grating, take a standing jump from the left side 
of the ledge to land on the head. Turn to face the back left of the sphinx. 
Line Lara up with the point sticking down from the ceiling and take a 
standing jump-grab to land on a square corner ledge with a small med-pack. 
(You can't see the ledge from above.) Take a standing jump from the ledge 
to the tall, square pillar. Turn left and take a running jump to grab the 
back of the white angled ledge. Pull up, slide down the other side and jump 
to the long ledge beyond. Go to the other end of the ledge for SECRET #3--a 
save/power-up crystal and 2 rockets.

(NOTE: There is another rocket on a ledge on the front of the sphinx. This 
will be the ROCKET LAUNCHER if you don't have it already. You can get to it 
by dropping down from the top. To get down to the ground, stand at the edge 
of the ledge and back flip onto the sloping head of the sphinx. Slide and 
grab to work your way down to the bottom. However, once you climb down, YOU 
WON'T BE ABLE TO GET SECRET #3.)

Go to the middle of the ledge and take a running jump to the sphinx's 
shoulder. Slide/drop to the ground. Go around to the other side of the 
sphinx. A guard opens fire from the stairwell, so take him out and grab his 
small med-pack. Then go to the alcove at the back right of the sphinx for 
some shotgun shells. When you return to the stairs, another guard comes in 
from the front of the room. Get him out of the way, then go to the top of 
the steps.

(NOTE: Sometimes the second guard does not show up. Apparently climbing 
onto the right paw of the sphinx and sliding down the front of it to the 
floor, then going back up the aisle toward the stairs will trigger his 
appearance.)

Climb onto the ledge above. Turn around and jump to grab the blue opening. 
Pull up and get a rocket and large med-pack--SECRET #4. Drop down and climb 
up to the ledge again. Pull the movable block on the left. Drop back and 
grab the ledge. Traverse to the left and use the block and the grating 
above as a ladder to climb up to the alcove on the right. Climb into the 
passageway above and drop down on the other side of the movable block. Push 
it again once. Then pull a second movable block twice. Climb back up the 
first block and grating to the alcove on the right. Again, go through the 
passage above. Now you can drop down behind the second block and emerge 
BACK IN THE LAIR OF THE DAMNED.

Go up the hall on the right, to the room where the level began, and place 
the embalming fluid in the carved alcove with the blue lights above it. 
This opens a door at the end of the short hallway to the right of the train 
bench "sofa." Go in and fall through the trapdoor into a pool. Now test out 
your new ride: the underwater propulsion vehicle (UPV).

(*** NOTE: If you want to get an extra rocket, before going down through 
the trapdoor, return up the ladder to the EGYPTIAN AREA, as you did at the 
beginning of the level. Climb up through the exhibit hall to the ledge 
opposite where you picked up the embalming fluid. Turn around, slide 
backwards down the slope and grab the edge. Let go, and grab the bottom of 
the next slope below. Traverse to the right and you'll see the rocket 
below. Let go to slide down the metal slope and land near the rocket. Pick 
it up and drop into the shaft. Lara will land in water. Swim down and allow 
the current to carry Lara to a spot where she can surface near a ledge with 
some harpoons on it. Pick up the walk-through below at the **. Note that 
you'll miss the area with the crocodiles described below.)

UNDERWATER AREAS: Drive the UPV into the big cavern, harpoon the crocodile 
(Action is the fire key on the UPV as well), and head for the opening on 
the right (with the wooden crate top) to get some air.

(NOTE: I found it easier to kill the croc with the hand-held harpoon gun. 
If you don't already have this weapon, you'll have to make do with the one 
on the UPV. Either way, make sure to drive the UPV out into the open area, 
as the current will prevent you from going back into the tunnel for it.)

Scour the area for goodies, but be careful; another crocodile comes out 
when you pick up the harpoons on the square cement block. Other items here 
are: a small med-pack on the bottom near the cement block; a save/power-up 
crystal and 2 bunches of harpoons in the room opposite the one with the air 
space; a large med-pack and 2 more bunches of harpoons in the next room; 
and Uzi clips in the room next to the air room. The large brick opening 
leads to the next area, where you can surface.

(IMPORTANT NOTE: DON'T SAVE YOUR GAME FROM THIS POINT UNTIL AFTER YOU 
FINISH THE NEXT AREA AND GET ALL THE SECRETS!!! Some people have 
experienced a bug in which an invisible wall appears blocking the entrance 
to the sixth secret. Saving here seems to be what causes it.)

(**) Climb onto the ledge, pick up 2 bundles of harpoons. Jump into the 
water on the other side. Swim along the brick passage to a room with a 
glass ceiling where you can surface for air. (You can also see another UPV 
in an adjacent room.) Pull the underwater lever to open the nearby 
trapdoor. Swim through it, climb out of the water and press the button to 
open the door in the underwater passage to the left. (You passed it on your 
way in.)

(NOTE: Be sure not to accidentally fire weapons here, or you'll attract 
unwanted attention from the guard on the other side of the window and miss 
getting one of the secrets.)

AREA WITH GUARD AND FROGMAN: The next bit is rather complicated, but it 
will enable you to get one of the more difficult secrets in the game. 
Ostensibly the object is to kill the frogman before he can get away and 
close the door to the underwater room with the UPV. The catch is that you 
can't shoot him on land. The frogman on top of the crates is just set 
dressing. He can't react to Lara, and she simply won't target him. You do 
want to avoid attracting the attention of the guard, though. This is 
actually what sounds the alarm and closes off the secret. Here's one 
strategy. The diagram luds.gif shows the path you'll take. It's quite rough 
and not at all to scale, but it will help clarify the text directions.

Swim through the door you just opened into the area with the guard and the 
frogman. Swim forward and to the right until you come to two small 
underwater openings. You can surface in the corner near them and not be 
seen by the guard above. Go down into the left opening for SECRET 
#5--Desert Eagle clips. Then go into the right opening, get a small 
med-pack and pull the lever to open a concealed trapdoor nearby.

Swim UNDERWATER back toward the tunnel where you came in and continue past 
it down a small channel. Surface and climb out on the ledge to the right. 
Climb up and CRAWL forward to a hole. Back up to it and drop into the water 
below. (This is the trapdoor you just opened.) Get the save/power-up 
crystal, climb out on the other side and CRAWL around to the white rocks on 
the far left (opposite secret #5 and the room with the lever).

Once you're behind the rocks, you can stand. Go to the back right corner, 
jump up the small slope and pull up into the doorway. There's another guard 
lurking inside. Don't bother with him yet. Instead, run down the dark 
hallway and jump from the left side of the opening at the end to land on 
the metal ledge behind where the frogman is standing. He'll jump into the 
water and start shooting harpoons at Lara. Kill him before he swims away.

Now kill the first guard and jump into the water where you killed the 
frogman to claim SECRET #6--4 bunches of harpoons, a large med-pack, a 
save/power-up crystal and the second UPV. (NOTE: Make sure you get 
everything in the secret room before going on. If you leave this area then 
come back, the invisible wall bug may be activated.)

Now you can take your time scouring the area for goodies. In all, you'll 
find:  the BOILER ROOM KEY, which the first guard will have dropped; the 
HARPOON GUN and 2 bunches of harpoons (3 bunches if you already have the 
HARPOON GUN) behind the crates near the window and silver door; 3 more 
bunches of harpoons--one where the frogman was standing, one on the white 
rocks just behind that, and one on the big ledge above the red flashing 
light; a large med-pack in the pit behind the crates opposite where the 
frogman was; a small med-pack in a hole to the left of where you entered 
the dark room (you have to crawl then drop into it); flares and 
a  save/power-up crystal in the dark room with the guard. (After climbing 
in from the rocks below, look up in the right corner and you'll see a 
crawlspace. The items are inside.) You can also kill the other guard here now.

When you've collected everything, drive the UPV down the long, 
diamond-shaped tunnel near where you killed the frogman. (NOTE: If you 
missed Secret #6 and don't want to bother trying again, continue to the 
next area where you'll find another UPV in the upper left alcove on the 
right wall.). Another diver lies in wait, and there's a crocodile in the 
large, open area beyond. You may want to kill the diver then return to the 
previous area for air before taking on the croc.

LARGE UNDERWATER ROOM WITH DIAMOND-SHAPED OPENINGS: (The wall where you 
enter is labeled "Near," and the others "Left," "Right" and "Far" relative 
to that.) There's an air pocket in the top left opening on the right wall. 
First, pick up a few things: a large med-pack in the lower right opening on 
the same wall as the air space and a save/power-up crystal in the opening 
next to the entrance.

Now comes a series of underwater levers and doors. Needless to say, you'll 
need to go back for air between each action. I found that the UPV is very 
difficult to maneuver in the tight spaces inside some of the side rooms. It 
may help to park it outside, do the lever business, then return to it to 
speed back to the air hole. Here's the sequence: Swim into the opening to 
the left of the entrance (when facing it). Around the corner to the right 
is a lever. Pull it to open a door in the yellow area (just above the 
entrance). Swim in there to get a small med-pack and pull another lever. 
This opens the door in the red area (left wall, top right). Swim in there, 
picking up a save/power-up crystal on the way, and pull the lever to open a 
door in the blue area (far wall, upper right, next to air opening). This 
also lets in 2 more scuba divers. Here, I recommend either rushing back to 
the air hole, then using your hand harpoon gun to take them out, or simply 
avoiding them and heading for the exit.

BOILER ROOM: Ride the UPV into the blue opening and up a long, vertical 
passage to surface near the BOILER ROOM. Climb over the ledge and jump into 
the water below the burners. Here you'll find some harpoons and a lever. 
Pull the lever to turn off the flames. Jump from the ledge, across the 
burners, stopping near the second burner to pick up a large med-pack and 
Uzi clips. Then jump to the doorway.

Follow the duct around the corner to the pistons (?). Watch the shadows on 
the floor, and you should be able to run past them one at a time without a 
hitch. Climb up to the ledge, then take a running jump to grab the grate on 
the ceiling. Traverse all the way across to the rolled steel duct. Drop 
down in the area next to the pool and pick up Desert Eagle clips and 
flares. Climb up to the duct, grab the ceiling grate again and traverse to 
the wall near the waterfall. Drop to grab the small opening, pull up and 
crawl through. Use the boiler room key here to open the door. Get the 
save/power-up crystal and press the button to open a door back down in the 
underwater area.

BACK THROUGH THE LARGE UNDERWATER ROOM WITH DIAMOND-SHAPED OPENINGS: Climb 
out, drop into the water and drive the UPV back down to the bottom. There's 
another crocodile waiting down there, but you can hurry past it much more 
easily than you could kill it. Also, your previous air pocket is now gone, 
so you don't want to waste any time. Drive directly across from the blue 
opening into the purple one. Head to the left through the door you just 
opened, and continue up a long, vertical passage until you can surface.

MACHINE ROOM & LONG SHAFT: Climb out of the water on the ledge with the 
large med-pack. Then cross back to the other ledge. Walk to the edge facing 
the left side of the platform with the swinging steel gizmo. Take two steps 
back then do a standing jump to grab the platform. Shimmy to the left 
(against the wall) and pull up. Walk across the platform to the other edge. 
(Or, if you're having trouble walking past the machines without taking 
damage, stand near the wall and roll.) Take another standing jump to grab 
the next platform. Again, pull up next to the wall where it's safe. Walk to 
the far edge and take another standing jump to grab the last platform. Jump 
from there to the doorway.

Follow the passage around the corner and kill the guard. Now backtrack to 
an opening in the ceiling near the machine room. Climb up and follow the 
duct to an opening above the very deep, very wide shaft. Take a running 
jump to grab the small, rectangular opening across the way. Drop and grab 
the opening below. Crawl through the duct to a brick ledge above the open 
shaft. Again, take a running jump to grab the opening opposite. Crawl 
through the ducts to the end of the level.

A cut scene ensues: Lara confronts Sophia Leigh in her office. Sophia is 
unwilling to part with her artifact and flees. Lara, naturally, won't take 
"No" for an answer.



LONDON PART 4:  CITY

Kills: 0*  Items: 6, plus the EYE OF ISIS  Secrets: 1

*The only enemy is the level boss, Sophia Leigh. However, since Lara 
defeats her indirectly, this doesn't register as an "official" kill. Be 
sure to find all the secrets so you can access the bonus level at the end 
of the game.

Objectives: Kill the angry Miss Leigh and get her artifact.

Walk-through: Follow Sophia Leigh through the door in the corner of her 
office. She'll be waiting outside on a ledge of the adjacent building. 
DON'T SHOOT AT HER. She can't be killed with conventional weapons, so don't 
even waste any ammunition on her. Instead, climb up to the electrical panel 
and shoot it to electrify the walkway where Sophia will be standing. 
(Detailed directions follow.)

As you climb, Sophia will continue to fire energy bolts from her artifact. 
Expect to take some hits. Use med-packs as you go along. There are 
additional med-packs scattered along the ledges. If you're desperately low 
on health, go ahead and pick them up. But if you have enough to last, wait 
until later to get them. If you keep moving, Sophia won't be able to hit 
Lara as often, since she climbs as Lara does and doesn't fire as she's 
climbing. Once you' know where you're going, it's not all that difficult.

First, run up the ramp on the right side of the opening. Climb up onto the 
ledge, turn around and either take a running jump to grab the ledge on the 
left side, or grab the grate in the ceiling and traverse over to the ledge 
near the pink light. Climb onto the block on the left. Turn around and pull 
up onto the next ledge.

Run across the bridge to the right side and press the button to open a 
trapdoor behind you. Run back across the bridge to left side. Climb up. 
Turn left and climb to the next level (above the white light). Cross the 
bridge back to the right side. Jump and grab the yellow grating ladder and 
climb up. Crawl through the low opening to the other side. Turn around, 
climb up and, if you want to, crouch behind the angled block until you hear 
Sophia pause for a power-up. Then take a running jump across the gap to 
grab the ledge on the left side (above where you were earlier). Pull up and 
walk forward. You'll find the electrical panel on your right. Shoot it to 
turn on the current in the walkway and put Sophia out of your misery.

Now you can go for all the goodies. Just make sure not to step on that 
electrified walkway. There's a small med-pack near the crawl space, small 
and large med-packs on the walkway at the level of the ladder, and another 
small med-pack on the level where the button is.

To access the level's SINGLE SECRET, get on the ledge below and to the left 
of the trapdoor. Drop backwards and hang from the edge. Traverse to the 
left, then drop and grab the opening below. Crawl in for a rocket and 
another large med-pack. Safety drop out through the little opening and 
climb back up to the highest ledge on the right side (above the crawlspace).

Take a running jump from there across the gap to the building where Sophia 
was (just below the helipad). Climb up the cement ledges (near the white 
light). Drop down on the other side and use the button to turn off the 
current. Take the EYE OF ISIS to end the level.


NEVADA PART 1:  NEVADA DESERT

Kills: 29  Items: 25, plus the UZIS, a DETONATOR SWITCH, a KEY CARD and 3 
save/power-up crystals  Secrets: 3

Be sure to find all the secrets so you can access the bonus level at the 
end of the game.
NOTE:  The weapon pick-ups are based on doing the three middle areas in the 
order I have done them (i.e., Nevada, London, South Pacific). After 
completing the walk-through I will go back and add alternate points for 
picking up the different weapons.

Objectives:  First find a way to the canyon interior. From there, go 
upriver to locate a dam and divert the water into a sluiceway. Find the 
detonator switch and the TNT and use the first to explode the second, 
opening the way into the last part of the level. Here you have to find a 
way into the compound, turn off the electric fence, open the gate and 
highjack the quad bike to jump into the main High Security Compound that 
makes up the next level.

Walk-through:  Go forward and kill 2 vultures, plus a rattlesnake lurking 
in the bushes. (NOTE: Don't forget to antidote the venom with a med-pack if 
you get bitten.)  Avoid the quicksand area to the left of the rock 
outcropping. Instead, go around to the right. To the right of the pool is 
an area with another rattlesnake guarding a rocket.

Go past the pool into the narrow canyon. Continue into the passage, 
climbing up the blocks. When you come to a ramp above a hole, take a 
running jump over it to grab the next ledge. Pull up, turn around, and drop 
into the pit from the back side on the left to avoid the barbed wire below.

This is SECRET #1--2 rattlesnakes guarding a save/power-up crystal, flares 
and a small med-pack. There's another snake near the low step on the other 
side of the room. Just inside the alcove is a movable block. Push it once 
to open up the exit. Pick up the shotgun shells.

Go to the left, up the passageway the same way you did earlier, but this 
time don't drop down. Instead, jump to the next ledge and continue to 
emerge above the area where you started. Go to the right side of the large 
metal structure and take a running jump to the narrow ledge on the other 
side of the gap. Follow the ledges around, jumping the gaps as you go, and 
killing a rattlesnake resting in the shade of a bush. When you reach the 
end of the last ledge, jump to the sloped wall, slide back and grab the 
edge. Traverse to the left a bit and drop down onto the flat ledge below. 
Follow it to the end and around the corner to find a large med-pack.

Take a running jump from the higher step near the med-pack ledge, across 
the quicksand, to grab the left side of the rock outcropping. Pull up and 
climb to the top, killing another snake on the way. Drop through the 
opening on the top of the metal structure into water. Follow the underwater 
tunnel, surface and continue along the passage to a ledge above a large pool.

POOL WITH WATERFALLS: Turn right and take a running jump using Action to 
shorten the arc to land on the small triangular ledge ahead. Take a 
standing jump to grab the next ledge. Pull up and kill a vulture. Continue 
along the ledges as far as you can. You'll end up on a high block across 
the water from a rock ladder. (The black horizontal markings are handholds.)

Before jumping across, turn to the left and jump across to the sloped ledge 
above the path you traveled. Get the Uzi clips. Then return to the high block.

Take a running jump across the water to grab the ladder. Climb down to the 
first horizontal crevice. When you reach the crevice, let go and quickly 
grab the lower edge. Climb down to the angled opening on the right. 
Position Lara's hands at the top of the point and shimmy to the right as 
far as possible. Let go and grab the ledge below. Pull up into the opening. 
This is SECRET #2. Inside you'll find Desert Eagle and MP5 clips.

Jump into the water and pick up the goodies scattered around the bottom of 
the pool: 2 sets of Uzi clips, shotgun shells, plus flares and more shells 
in the niches below the waterfalls.

Climb out of the water on the low square ledge near the falls. Pull up onto 
the taller block next to it and take a running jump to the angled block 
across the water. (NOTE: Many people have had difficulty with this jump. 
Just to make sure you're in the right spot. Then, make sure to do a running 
jump without grabbing: Walk Lara to the edge, hop back once, then press 
Forward and Jump. She should just make it to the edge of the angled block 
across the water.)

Now, jump to the next block on the right. Hop down to the flat ledge on the 
left to get the shotgun shells. Take a standing jump back to the ledge, 
then a running jump across the water to grab the ledge below the rock 
ladder. Climb up to the cave mouth where you entered the canyon.

Circle back around the way you went earlier to get secret #2. This time 
jump to the rock ladder area but pull up onto the ledge instead of climbing 
down. Follow the ledges to the left, killing the snake behind the shrub. 
(NOTE: This path is marked in green in the first screenshot used in the 
series illustrating secret #2, above. The snake is circled.) Turn right and 
jump over the angled block, to land on the flat spot on the left. (Be 
careful not to fall into the hole next to it.)

Now, either take a standing jump over the slope, turning to the right in 
the air to land facing up the next slope, or a side flip onto it so Lara 
ends up facing uphill. Then slide back, grab the edge, traverse left and 
pull up. Or, on the ledge near the hole, drop back and grab the outside 
edge. Let go and grab the crevice below. Traverse left until you can pull 
up. Jump to grab the ceiling and monkey climb to the wall with the 
hand-holds. When Lara's chest is up against the ladder, let go of the 
ceiling and grab the ladder. Climb left and up, into the opening.

TNT CAVE: Here you'll find a save/power-up crystal (on the ledge outside), 
a small med-pack and a DETONATOR PLUNGER. Follow the wires down into the 
cave. Behind the box of TNT is a greenish cave. Inside are some flares. Get 
them and climb back up the slope to the opening. You'll need a key to use 
the detonator, so continue on.

Jump to the angled block on the right of the cave opening (left if you're 
standing outside facing the opening). Slide back and grab the edge. If Lara 
brings her feet up onto the rock ladder, just momentarily release and 
re-press the Action key so she'll let go and grab the edge with her hands 
only. Traverse to the left until you can pull up on a sloped ledge. 
(Alternately, climb down the rock ladder from the opening of the cave with 
the TNT. When you reach the first ledge on the left, climb to the left and 
drop onto the ledge. Follow the ledge the end. Then jump to grab the ladder 
next to the waterfall. Climb up and back flip onto the ledge behind.)

HEADING UPSTREAM: Turn to face the block between the two waterfalls. The 
side facing you is flat, the other side is angled. Jump and grab it, pull 
up and slide forward, jumping as you slide, to land on the ledge beyond. 
Get the small med-pack and hop back down to the ledge just below (where you 
landed when you slid). From here, take a standing jump to grab the 
horizontal crevice. Traverse to the right. Drop onto the angled block and 
immediately press Jump to back flip onto the ledge across the water. Turn 
to face upstream and take running jumps from block to block to reach the 
cave interior, where there's a huge water wheel.


WATER WHEEL AREA: On the left bank (when facing the wheel) is a rock pillar 
with a rattlesnake behind it. Crawl under the nearby rock overhang and 
climb the ladder for SECRET #3--the loaded UZIS (or Uzi clips if you 
already have the guns), guarded by another snake.

Climb back down and go around the back of the water wheel. If you need a 
save/power-up crystal now, go into the passageway on the left. There's a 
crystal on the other side of the elevator shaft. Return to the big wheel 
and subdue the cranky guy who tries to beat on Lara. Now climb the ladders 
on the side of the wheel. Follow the sluiceway to the right. Kill 2 
vultures in the open area and a snake in the bushes on the left. In the 
back, beyond the two water slides is another snake and some grenades.

Now take a swim: Head back toward the yellow blocks near the water and jump 
in on the left. Pull the underwater lever to open the door opposite. Inside 
are pistol clips. Avoid the area downstream or you'll be swept over the 
falls. Instead go left back toward the two water slides. Pull the 
underwater lever in the corner to open the trapdoor between the two yellow 
footings. Swim down through it. There's another lever just inside and 
above. Pull it to open a trapdoor at the end of the underwater tunnel. On 
the way up, or after getting some air, pull the lever on the side to open 
another door near the trapdoor.

Go down the short hallway. Use the switch at the end to turn on the water 
wheel, diverting the river into the sluiceway. This also raises the elevator.

Slide down into the pool and climb out before you're swept into the 
sluiceway. Drop down into the now dry area where you pulled the first 
underwater lever. Walk along the riverbed to get a large med-pack. Then 
jump to grab the opposite ledge for a small med-pack. Jump down onto the 
square corner ledge. Take a standing jump with a slight twist to the right 
to land in the alcove behind the waterfall, where you can pick up a rocket. 
Jump back out to the corner ledge. Then jump downstream from ledge to ledge 
back to the river near the water wheel.

Go around behind the wheel to the passageway leading to the elevator. Kill 
another ill-tempered gentleman and get the DETONATOR SWITCH inside the 
elevator (and the save/power-up crystal if you didn't get it earlier).

BACK AT THE TNT CAVE: Return to the river and jump from rock to rock over 
to the small ledge between the two waterfalls. From here, jump to the ledge 
on the other side of the falls on the left. Climb down to the middle ledge 
and up the rock ladder on the right to the cave with the TNT and DETONATOR 
PLUNGER. (NOTE: If you fall in, just ride the river to the pool below and 
climb up the way you did before.) Use your switch to detonate the 
explosives and quickly get out of the way of the rolling boulder.

Go down into the pit and use the ledges to climb out into the next area.

OUTSIDE THE HIGH-SECURITY COMPOUND: Don't touch that electric fence! Pick 
up some grenades on the ground near the bushes. Then head around the fence 
to a hole in the rock wall. Crawl/walk through the passageway until you 
come to a gap. Don't drop down yet. Instead, jump and grab the opening 
opposite. Pull up and follow the tunnel to a pool. Pull the 2 underwater 
levers: The one behind the metal column opens a yellow door outside and the 
other opens a door in the nearby water tank, which you can't reach yet.

Return via the passageway to the electric fence area. Enter the tunnel on 
the left and slide down. Kill a couple of snakes and go through the door 
you just opened. Pull the switch to flood the water tank.
Go back up the slope (climb onto the low block and take a standing jump to 
the higher block) and return to the tunnel near the fence. This time drop 
down when you reach the gap. Follow the tunnel to the elevated water tank. 
Kill the 2 tough guys milling around and climb the ladder to the tank. Jump 
in and swim to the ledge with the open door. (Pull the lever in the 
underwater passage to open it if you didn't before.)

Take a running jump from the door, over the fence, to land on a block 
beyond. Another guy in jeans rushes in from the right. Yet another bearded 
guy (Are they starting to remind you of the clones in The X-Files?) shows 
you the gate switch then starts to beat on poor Lara. Kill him but don't 
touch the switch yet, or you'll get a nasty shock.

Inside the storage shed is the quad bike and 2 more Jerry Garcia clones 
(one comes out right away, the second when you start to explore). You'll 
find a small med-pack on one of the guys and Uzi clips in a corner.
Drive the quad bike up the ramp on the side of the next building over. 
Brake when you reach the top to avoid going over the edge. Dismount and 
pick up the GENERATOR ACCESS CARD. (NOTE: If you do drive off the other 
side of the roof you can drive around and try again, or walk to the side of 
the storage building, climb onto the crate and jump to grab the grate on 
the side of the office, which extends only after you drive the bike onto 
the roof. Pull up and cross the roof to get the card.)

Climb or drive down and go into the office (the building you were just on 
top of). Kill the computer technician/pool shark and use the card to open 
the door. Take care of one more angry guy and throw the switch to turn off 
the electric fence.

Now you can safely use the switch on the fence to open the gate. Drive the 
quad bike out and down the sloped tunnel. Gun it up the rock ramp to jump 
the fence and end the level.

A brief cut scene follows: Lara crashes the bike and lands unconscious in a 
small pool. Two military police officers find her and drag her into the 
high security compound.



NEVADA PART 2:  HIGH SECURITY COMPOUND

Kills: 14*  Items: 20, plus PISTOLS, DESERT EAGLE PISTOL and GRENADE 
LAUNCHER, 3 key cards, 4 pass keys and 3 save/power-up crystals  Secrets: 2

*The number of kills here is approximate. You don't need to kill the 
prisoners. If you do, your kill total will be substantially higer. Note 
that there are two prisoners that can't be killed even if you try: the 
first one you meet if you follow this walk-through and the one near where 
you get the second keycard. Thanks to Jason P. for pointing this out. Be 
sure to find all the secrets so you can access the bonus level at the end 
of the game.

Objectives:  You begin the level locked in a cell with only a single 
med-pack (or your save crystals if you're playing the PSX version) left in 
your possession. The guards have confiscated everything else you collected 
up to this point. You must escape and, in the process, get your hands on 
some weapons. Your fellow prisoners will make valuable allies, so don't 
hurt them. You'll need to find a series of 7 keys/key cards in order to 
access different areas of the level.

Walk-through:  CELL BLOCK [BAY C]: Climb into the window to trip the 
sensors and get the guard's attention. When he comes in, run out past him 
and open the cell next door. A burly convict will come out and make short 
work of the guard for you. Open the rest of the cells while you're at it, 
since you'll be needing some reinforcements farther along in the level. (Is 
it just me, or do all these guys look like clones of George Michael on 
steroids?)

Enter the open cell diagonally opposite Lara's. Jump into the passageway 
above the sink. Push the movable crate once and crawl through the small 
opening around to the other side. Push the second movable crate once. Turn 
right to face the first crate (you're now on the other side of it) and push 
it twice, past the crawl space. Return to the second crate and pull it back 
twice. Crawl back under and pick up SECRET #1, a small med-pack, where the 
second crate was.

COMPOUND ROOF: Now climb through the opening in the ceiling to the walkway 
above. Take a running jump over the barbed wire in the pit to grab the 
other edge. Pull up and continue. Walk through the barbed wire and pull the 
switch to open the trapdoor. Climb onto the ledge then down the ladder into 
the hallway on the left. (Don't drop into the barbed wire below.)

Follow the hallway, jumping over the first trapdoor. Fall through the 
second trapdoor and push the button inside the office to open the bars on 
the CELL BLOCK. If you stay low, the guard will ignore you and the 
prisoners will rush out and take care of him for you. Take a small 
med-pack, shotgun shells and a KEY CARD from the guard once he's down. Use 
the card to open the gate opposite the CELL BLOCK.

LAVATORY, KITCHEN & MESS HALL [BAY D]: Inside is a roughly square area of 
corridors. To the right is a closed door leading to a yellow area. Ahead is 
the MESS HALL and KITCHEN. The LAVATORY is to the left.

Go through the LAVATORY to a storage room. Find the movable crate and 
pull/push it under the opening in the ceiling. Climb up, jump the purple 
pipe and use the switch to flood the room below. Swim down and through the 
other opening in the ceiling. Follow the passageway, jumping over the 
opening above the lit stove in the KITCHEN. Continue to an outdoor walkway.

Traverse over the barbed wire pits. Drop down at the end and go down the 
ramp. Use the switch to turn off the flames and the button to open the 
door, but return the way you came and drop down onto the stove.
Take the small med-pack on the counter. Then press the button to open the 
kitchen door to exit. Now open the door on the right first (leading to the 
MESS HALL), then the one on the left. Let the guard chase you through the 
MESS HALL back to the CELL BLOCK so your buddies can pummel him for you. 
Confiscate his small med-pack.

Return to the office near the KITCHEN, where the guard came from. Press the 
button here to raise the grates on the exhaust fans in the KITCHEN. Climb 
through the vent carefully and get the save/power-up crystal. Slide down 
the slope and jump to grab the crevice. Traverse to the left, drop down and 
immediately jump to land on the flat spot on the other side of the barbed 
wire. Climb into the crawlspace and follow it to a ladder. Climb up and 
walk along the passage to open the trapdoor above. Reverse, jump to grab 
the opposite edge of the opening and pull up.

GREEN RAMP [BAY E]: Say hi to your friend George and continue to the end of 
the hallway. Climb the grate and pick up the small med-pack at the base of 
the green ramp. There's a guard patrolling at the top. He won't follow you 
down the grate ladder, so you'll have to lead him elsewhere. Run up the 
ramp and turn right. Sprint through the next room, past the crate and to 
the left. (Don't go right or the sensors will activate a gun turret and you 
won't get very far.) On the far left is an opening you can jump down into. 
Run into the hallway ahead and press the button to let George out of his 
cell. He'll subdue the guard so you can take his KEY CARD.

Climb back up top and use the card to open the control room. Inside is a 
large med-pack and Uzi clips. Push the button to deactivate the sensors. 
Now you can go through that area and down the ladder. Run down the hall to 
the left. The guard will chase you. Again, open the cell door. When the 
cons are through with the officer, relieve him of his YELLOW SECURITY PASS 
and some flares.

OUTDOOR/HANGAR AREA: Go back up to the sandy area. Use the pass key to open 
the door on the far side of the hangar. Enter and follow the passage until 
you come to a crawlspace. Go through it, instead of down the ramp, to avoid 
the guard on duty below. Pass the windows and safety drop (it's quieter 
than jumping) into the hallway below. Crawl along to the switch and pull it 
to open the door to the left. The guard will freak, but he won't cross the 
laser trap in front of the door. So jump over it into the doorway and run 
down the hallway. Alternately, you can wait for the guard to approach the 
door. Then, just before he turns to go back, flip the switch, and he'll be 
fried by the laser.

SATELLITE DISH TOWER & POOL BELOW [BAY C]: Continue to a huge, open room 
containing a central structure with stairs going around it and a dish 
antenna on top. There are several ways you can accomplish the next bit of 
business. The following describes one way.

(NOTE: You can get to the glassed-in control room that you see above on the 
right when you enter. The hallway leading to it is on the opposite side of 
the tower. Inside the control room are 2 buttons. One moves the satellite 
dish, revealing an opening at the top of the tower that will allow you to 
drop into the pool. The other opens the door to the hallway leading back to 
the tower support. However, none of this is necessary if you follow this 
walk-through.)

Drop down onto the support beam just below the doorway. Make sure Lara's 
health is at or close to 100%. Position her so her back is to the opening 
where you entered and the glassed-in control center is above on her right. 
If she drops here, she'll still lose more than half her health, but she'll 
take even more damage if she drops from the outer edge of the support.

After dropping, you'll be at the base of the tower supporting the dish 
antenna. In the center of this square room is an opening above a pool. On 
one outer wall is a ladder leading up. (This is the ladder labled #1 in the 
diagram.) On the other side of the room, there's a hallway leading to 
another ladder going down. (This is the ladder labled #2 in the diagram. It 
is behind Lara when she first drops from the support beam.)

First, climb the ladder leading up. Follow the passageway to a T 
intersection. There's a guard posted down the hall to the left with his 
back to you. Sneak to the right (walk or crawl; don't run, or the guard 
will notice). Climb into the crawlspace at the end of the hall, take the 
YELLOW SECURITY PASS and sneak back out the way you came. (NOTE: Remember 
this location; you'll be returning here later on to pick up a secret.)

When you reach the square room at the base of the dish antenna tower, 
circle around the opening in the center to the opposite side and climb down 
the ladder. IMPORTANT: Push the button in the alcove to the left of the 
ladder. When you return to this area, you will need to get through from the 
other side. Now enter the room to the right of the ladder and use your 
yellow pass key to drop a door between the propeller and the save/power-up 
crystal in the passageway at the bottom of the pool.

The pool has grates on all four sides. The strong current sucks Lara toward 
the grates, so that it's easy to become trapped and drown. Rather than 
fighting the current, I found an easier strategy: Climb the ladder to the 
right of the yellow lock. At the top of the ladder is a dark room with 
bluish-purple lighting. One side is open to the pool. Drop onto the small, 
square burner that juts out into the pool. From here, you can step off into 
the water almost exactly above the opening with the save/power-up crystal. 
Swim through the opening, picking up the crystal, and continue along the 
underwater passage. Pull the lever to open the door and keep going.

Surface in the next room in one of the corners to avoid the lethal laser 
trap. If you didn't have time to get them on the way, go back into the 
passage for the flares and small med-pack. Climb out of the water, jump 
over the lasers and drop into the next water-filled passage. Follow it to a 
big room with a hook up above and a fellow escaped prisoner.

ROOM WITH CONVEYOR BELT & HOOK: Climb the crates on the left of the 
entrance. The room behind them holds a large med-pack, PISTOLS and a loaded 
DESERT EAGLE PISTOL--at last! Be careful exiting the room, as the sensors 
for the gun turret above have been activated. Hug the wall to the right of 
the door and climb up the crates.

RETURN TO SATELLITE DISH TOWER AREA: Now that you've got some weapons, 
return to the previous area for a secret. Swim back to the pool, follow the 
other underwater passage in the corner to a dark crawlspace. Crawl through 
to the hallway near the YELLOW LOCK ROOM. Now there's a guard on patrol 
here. Take him out, continue around to the right and climb the ladder.

(NOTE: If you neglected to open the door here earlier and your way is 
blocked, return to the pool. Climb out of the water on the small, square 
burner and jump from ledge to ledge clockwise around the pool to the green 
crawlspace. Follow this to a switch, which opens the door. Return via the 
pool to the hallway where you killed the guard.)

Climb back up the ladder to the square room at the base of the satellite 
dish antenna. Go around to the other ladder, climb up (to where you got the 
yellow security pass earlier), kill the second guard, and take his grenades 
and KEY CARD. Now use the card to open the door at the end of the hall. 
This is SECRET #2--the loaded GRENADE LAUNCHER.

RETURN TO ROOM WITH CONVEYOR BELT & HOOK: Make your way back, via the 
tunnel at the bottom of the pool, to the ROOM WITH THE SWINGING HOOK. Go up 
the ramp on the right, killing a guard at the first landing and 4 more MPs 
and a German shepherd at the top. One of them will drop a BLUE SECURITY 
PASS and grenades. Take them, plus a large med-pack from the small room 
near the gate.

Climb the ladder at the top of the ramp and use the pass key to open the 
next door. Kill the guard who rushes out. Inside you'll find 2 buttons. 
Press the one on the right to turn on the conveyor belt, dumping a crate at 
the bottom. The left button only opens the gate, letting in another guard 
and his dog. So unless you want all the kills, don't bother pushing it.

Climb back down, go down the ramp and use the crate to climb to the ledge 
above. Grab the duct above and monkey swing across to the ledge with the 
small med-pack. Return to the middle then go left, past the hook, to the 
stairs. Climb up and kill the guard so you can borrow his YELLOW SECURITY 
PASS. Carefully jump over the laser trap and get the save/power-up crystal. 
Return to the ground.

LOADING DOCK: Use the key to open the gate to BAY X. ;-) Head up the ramp 
to the loading dock, killing one MP on duty outside and another in the 
warehouse. Pick up some Desert Eagle clips and a small med-pack in a 
depression at the top of the stacked crates. Go to the back right, where 
you'll find one movable crate. Behind it is an alcove containing Uzi clips 
and grenades. Get on the truck to end the level.

Another short cut scene follows: Lara hides behind some crates as the truck 
doors are closed. She pops open a soda and takes a much-needed break as she 
rides on to Area 51.



NEVADA PART 3:  AREA 51

Kills: 25  Items: 29, plus the MP5 and SHOTGUN, 2 Code Disks, 1 Key, 1 Code 
Card, the ORA DAGGER (or ELEMENT 115**) and 4 save/power-up 
crystals  Secrets: 3*

*Number of kills is approximate. The number of soldiers that appear in 
certain areas depends on your actions. Note that one of the regular 
pick-ups here will be the GRENADE LAUNCHER if you didn't get it in the 
previous level. Be sure to find all the secrets so you can access the bonus 
level at the end of the game.
Note that the PSX DEMO is substantially different from the full level in 
the game. I don't have a PlayStation, but if any of you PSX people out 
there want to send me detailed notes on this demo, I'll gladly post them.

Objectives:  Locate the Ora Dagger artifact somewhere inside this military 
installation.** To do this, you'll need to find various code disks, keys 
and passes necessary to open doors and move obstacles in your path. First, 
get the code disk and hangar access key, which will enable you to get to 
the train tracks and, from there, to the hangar. There you'll need to 
locate the switches that open the UFO room, where you'll find the launch 
code pass. Launch the big missile so you can get into the area above. Here 
you'll find the code disk that will get you into the flying saucer (and 
some other nearby rooms). This area is where you'll find the dagger.

Walk-through:  Grab the small med-pack behind the crates on the left. Run 
forward and take out the sentry before he reaches the end of the hall and 
turns on the lasers. If the coast is clear, go into the room near the red 
rifle sign and pick up the MP5 ASSAULT RIFLE and 2 sets of clips for it. 
Otherwise, restart the level and try again or go on without the rifle for now.

Don't pull the switch (it turns on the lasers). Instead, push the button in 
the hallway to open the crawlspace. Enter, take the large med-pack and 
crawl into the next opening. Watch out for the rolling laser trap beyond. 
Crawl under it and to the left, as it goes to the right, to get another 
large med-pack. Follow the lasers back to the low spot. When the lasers 
pass overhead going in the other direction, stand, run forward to the 
ladder and climb up.

Advance halfway into the crawlspace. You can now see the guard in the 
hallway, but he can't see Lara. When he passes going to the right, crawl 
out and shoot him before he can reach the far end of the hallway and 
activate the lasers. If he manages to do this, you can either reload a 
saved game or crawl under the first laser to reach a second crawlspace just 
beyond.

Before going through the second crawlspace, use the switch on the wall 
opposite the first crawlspace (where you just came out) to open the door 
and free another convict. Again, DON'T KILL HIM. You may want his friend's 
help later on. Inside his cell, behind the door is a small med-pack.

The ramp at the other end of the hall is protected by green sensors rigged 
to a gun turret. (As in the last level, don't shoot the turrets unless you 
want to lose a lot of health unnecessarily.) To avoid this trap, go through 
the crawlspace before the ramp, picking up some flares on the way. Kill the 
guard if you didn't do so earlier.

Advance into the glassed-in hallway. Run forward and kill the MP before he 
can reach the alarm. Then enter the storage room for a rocket, grenades and 
harpoons. (NOTE: Some people have had difficulty locating this storage 
room. The door, which will be open if you kill the MP in time, is between 
the alarm panel and the crate marked "M-12."

OUTDOOR AREA AND TRAPDOOR INTO NEXT BUILDING: Go to the gate at the other 
end of the hall. Pull the switch and fall through the trapdoor. Hurry 
around to the right and kill the guard before he hits the alarm. (NOTE: If 
he manages to do this, you won't be able to get the first secret. You'll 
have to reload a saved game and try again if you want it. You'll know he's 
pressed the button if 2 dogs come out. If there are no dogs, you're in 
business.)

Crawl into the tunnel to the left of the alarm panel for some grenades. 
(NOTE: If you don't already have the GRENADE LAUNCHER, you'll get it here.) 
Get the shotgun shells in the right corner. Then hop down into the pit. 
Pull the switch to raise a gate below. Walk around the grating to the 
trapdoor. Fall through, kill another guard and go into the crawlspace with 
the save/power-up crystal--that's SECRET #1.

Now go through the other crawlspace. Get some Desert Eagle and MP5 clips in 
the alcoves before falling through the trapdoor. Kill the guard below and 
take his small med-pack.

Go to the end of the hall away from the glass floor. Open the cell door and 
let your prisoner friend go out and kill a couple more MPs for you. Crawl 
into the prisoner's half-dug escape tunnel for a large med-pack. Now go to 
the other end of the hallway, over the glass floor. The hall ends in a T 
and there are gun turrets at each end. Avoid this area. Instead, go through 
the crawlspace on the left. Here you'll find a large med-pack and the SHOTGUN.

Run down the ramp and around the corner. Kill the guard at the end of the 
hallway. In the middle of the hall are two facing doors. Enter this area 
and take out the 2 armed soldiers who emerge. One is carrying a small 
med-pack. Use the switch in the left room to raise the gate in the right 
one. (If the first guard tripped the alarm, you can turn off the laser trap 
in the right room using the button at the right end of the hall.) Go 
through the crawlspace to the next room and walk into the green sensors. 
Kill the guard who comes down the ramp.

MISSILE SILO AREA: Go up the ramp and to the right to the missile silo. 
Kill the soldier on the scaffolding. Drop down to the floor and climb up to 
take his CODE CLEARANCE DISK.

Go back through the door where you entered and go straight down the ramps 
to a room with missiles and conveyor belts. Drop down, taking care to avoid 
the laser traps crisscrossing the floor. In the dark area behind the left 
conveyor belt, you'll find a small med-pack. In the opposite corner is a 
computer where you can use your code disk to raise the missiles. Climb onto 
the platform with the swinging hook. Shoot out the purplish vent on the 
right. Behind it is SECRET #2. (NOTE: It is possible to pass through the 
vent without breaking it first, but make sure you do this, otherwise you'll 
get stuck on the other side.) Follow the duct down to a save/power-up 
crystal. Return the way you came.

Carefully run past the hook and pick up the shotgun shells. Take a running 
jump from the conveyor belt to grab the ladder above the cement footing. 
Climb up. Kill the armed soldier hiding in the corner and take his HANGAR 
ACCESS KEY. Drop down to the platform, climb out of this room and return to 
the missile silo the way you came.

ELECTRIC TRAIN TRACK: Drop down and go past the missile through the doorway 
at ground level. Avoid the hole in the next room and continue to a lock 
where you can use your new key. Enter and kill a guard. Hop down to the 
area below the track. Don't step on the electrified track! Go to the left 
end, climb the ladder and push the button to summon the train. Go back down 
the tunnel, crawl under the track and pull up into an alcove. Pick up the 
shotgun shells. (NOTE: If you don't already have the SHOTGUN, you'll get it 
here instead of the shells.) Then take a running jump to the top of the 
train car.

Climb into the passage above. Walk over the first set of grates, but use 
the ceiling grates to traverse over the second; otherwise you'll fall onto 
the track. To keep Lara from getting fried by the laser trap, monkey-swing 
as close to it as you can. Wait until it moves away and follow it until you 
can drop onto solid ground. Continue forward.

Drop down near the ladder, take a running jump across the track and, if you 
can, kill the guard before he takes off up the ramp. If he gets away, 
you'll need to kill him plus another guard at the top. At some point, pick 
up the shotgun shells below the track.

SAUCER ROOM: At the top of the long hallway is a locked room housing a UFO. 
Gun turrets are mounted in two corners, with three sensors along the first 
corridor. Jump the first two and crawl under the third. Climb over the 
crates in the back. Kill the guard in the next room before he goes down the 
hall to the right and trips the alarm. (This activates the gun turret in 
here and calls another soldier.)

Press each of the 2 buttons on the catwalks in turn to call in a pair of 
guards. Now get ready for a timed-door run. The right button (when facing 
them) opens the inner doors and raises the trapdoor in between the two sets 
of doors. The left button opens the outer doors. Press the right button 
first, press Look to get Lara's perspective back, backflip off of the 
catwalk, roll and take a running jump to land on the bank of computers in 
the middle of the room. Run across it, jumping at the end to grab the other 
catwalk. Pull up, run to the button. Press it, Look, backflip off the 
catwalk, roll and run through the open doors.

Once in the next room, kill the soldier lurking behind the bank of five 
switches. Pull the second from left and the two rightmost switches to open 
the room with the flying saucer. (NOTE: These are the ones that give you 
"visions" of the saucer room door. If you do this quickly, you can run out 
before the soldier emerges from behind the switches. Thanks to Jeff Reid 
for this tip.)

Go back to the saucer room via the small door on the left. Push the button 
near the ladder to open the trapdoor above. Climb up and back flip onto the 
ledge. Pick up the shotgun shells. Take a running jump to the catwalk above 
the saucer, drop down and take the LAUNCH CODE PASS. Slide down to the floor.

BACK TO MISSILE SILO: Go back to the missile silo area the way you came. 
This time, drop through the opening in the floor (in the room just past the 
lock where you used the hangar access key). Use the switch to open the 
door. Use the card to uncover the launch button. Press the button and 
immediately roll, side flip and sprint down the hall to avoid being toasted 
as the missile is launched. (You've gotta wonder what Lara just blew up.)

Climb back up to the silo and scale the scaffolding to the top, picking up 
a large med-pack on one of the platforms on the way. You may be able to 
kill the guard at the top from there. If not, take care of him when you get 
up there. Use the switch to open the gate. To get past this next laser 
trap, crawl after it as it moves away, stand, jump over it, run forward and 
crawl out. Get the grenades on the other side. Follow the passageway and 
climb up and out.

OUTDOOR AREA WITH SNIPER TOWER: Shoot the sniper and the MP with the club. 
Go down the ramp to the right, take out another soldier and relieve him of 
his CODE CLEARANCE DISK. Pull the switch to open the trapdoor outside. Go 
back up the ramp, climb the sniper's tower and take his MP5 clips. Now go 
down through the trapdoor and follow the passageway. Run down the ramp 
after the laser trap and duck to avoid it. Continue, climbing down the 
grating, to emerge in the hallway near the UFO room.

BACK AT THE SAUCER ROOM: Go up the ramp to the saucer room, pass those 
sensors again, and dash into the saucer room to avoid the second gun 
turret, which is now activated.

Go around the saucer and down the ramp. Use the disk in the computer to 
open several nearby doors. Enter the alien observation room behind you to 
get a small med-pack and a save/power-up crystal. Now cross the hall to 
another room with an orca tank, plus flares and pistol clips in the corner.

ORCA TANK: Return to the saucer room and once again climb the ladder and 
back flip onto the walkway. Turn around, walk out onto the sloping support 
on the left and face the opposite side of the room (the UFO is below and to 
the right, the ladder behind on the left). Take a running jump to grab the 
support ahead--not the closest one on the left, which is too steeply 
sloped, but the one straight ahead that slopes down toward you. Pull up, 
turn left and you'll see a doorway below. Take a running jump, pressing 
Action, to land inside. This is SECRET #3.

There are two stacked laser traps in the hallway beyond. When the upper one 
moves away, take a running jump from the ledge to sail over the lower one, 
which will be heading toward you. Run forward to the doorway. Drop into the 
orca tank to claim another save/power-up crystal. Climb back out. To come 
back through the laser trap, follow the lower one as it moves away from 
you. Duck just before you reach the ledge. As the armature with the lasers 
turns over, it will miss Lara. Pull up and continue. Safety drop from the 
doorway to the floor. (Use a med-pack if you need to beforehand, as you'll 
lose some health.)

Enter the saucer through the hatch underneath. Climb through the various 
openings to the top level, killing 3 guards in all--one on the middle level 
and two more at the top. Don't get too close to the one light panel that 
blinks yellow, or Lara will take damage. Take the ORA DAGGER from the 
platform in the center to end the level.

(**NOTE: In some versions of the game, this will be the ELEMENT 115 
artifact; you'll get the Ora Dagger in the last South Pacific level.)



SOUTH PACIFIC PART 1:  COASTAL VILLAGE

Kills: 23  Items: 25, plus 1 key, 3 Serpent Stones and 5 save/power-up 
crystals  Secrets: 3*

*There are several possible routes through this level. I have attempted to 
describe them without making the walk-through too convoluted. The number of 
kills and items will vary depending on the route you choose. Also, there 
are actually four possible secrets. Finding any three is enough for a 
perfect score, but it is possible to get all four. Be sure to find at least 
three so you can access the bonus level at the end of the game.

Note also that one of the regular pick-ups here will be the HARPOON GUN if 
you didn't get it in a previous level.

Objectives:  Get from the lagoon to the village (by either route or a 
combination of the two). Once you reach the village, find a way into the 
tree house near the big swamp. Inside you'll meet a soldier, who will give 
you a map to help you get across the swamp at the beginning of the next level.

Walk-through:  You begin the level underwater. Swim forward to surface. 
Then swim to the right between the rocks. On the bottom of the lagoon 
you'll find the SMUGGLER'S KEY. Swim back toward where you started, then 
continue forward. There's one ledge low enough to climb out on. On the 
block above is a small med-pack.

After you get it, swim to the other end of the lagoon near the bamboo hut. 
Climb out of the water on the rock outcropping with the small med-pack on 
top. Face away from the hut. Across the water, you'll see some rocks with a 
sloped block on the left and a flat ledge on the right. Take a running jump 
from the peak of this rock to grab the sloped ledge, traverse and pull up 
onto the flat ledge. Turn right and take a standing jump to the next flat 
block ahead. The chimes will register SECRET #1, but you'll need to take a 
running jump to grab the next ledge for the pick-up: MP5 clips.

Swim back to the sandy shore. There are now two paths you could follow: 
Into the hut (next paragraph) or down into the cave on the right (pick up 
the walk-through below at the **). Either path will net you three secrets, 
but if you want all four, you'll need to start with the hut. (See the note 
about secrets above at the *.)

THE SMUGGLER'S HUT:  Enter and use the smuggler's key to unlock the 
trapdoor. Safety drop in and pick up a save/power-up crystal. Advance 
slowly to avoid being skewered by the wooden spike trap. Crawl under and 
continue to a cavern with a pool. Shoot the 2 crocodiles in the water and 
the tribesman with the blowgun on the ledge above. (NOTE: The MP5 works 
well for long-range targeting. If Lara is hit by one of the tribesmen's 
blowdarts, you'll need to use a med-pack or power-up crystal to antidote 
the poison.)

LARGE CAVE WITH POOL: Sweep the bottom of the lake to find 4 bunches of 
harpoons--two just below the ledge at the entrance, one ahead on the right, 
and one on the far side of the pool on the left. (NOTE: If you don't 
already have the HARPOON GUN, you'll find it here in place of some of the 
harpoons.) Then return to the ledge at the entrance.

Take a running jump to the next ledge, a standing jump to the ledge beyond 
that, then climb up to the high block near the torch. (NOTE: This sequence, 
getting from the ledge with the torch to the high walkway.) Use the vines 
on the ceiling to traverse over the pool to the other side. Drop onto the 
ledge. Turn and jump to the path on the right. Follow it to the end and 
climb up as far as you can. Turn to face the torch and rock bridge then 
follow the short path toward the right wall. Above on the right, you'll see 
an opening. Jump to grab the vine-covered wall below it and climb up to get 
some MP5 clips. Back out of the opening, climb down as far as you can, and 
let go to drop to the walkway.

Turn around and walk back up the path toward the entrance. At the end of 
the path, turn left and climb onto the stone ledge. Turn around to face 
across the water. Take a standing jump from the edge of the block to grab 
the ledge above the entrance. (You can also use a running jump, but it's 
more difficult to set up on the angled ledge.) Pull up. Use the vines on 
the ceiling to traverse to the rock bridge where you killed that tribesman.

Cross the bridge, turn left, then jump over to the slope. (You can't really 
see it, but it's on the other side of the opening.) Slide down and jump at 
the end to land on the ledge beyond. Look sharp because another tribesman 
is shooting darts from above. Take care of him, then do a running jump over 
the spikes to grab the ladder. Climb up and get the large med-pack.

Drop back and hang from this ledge. Then traverse to the left until you can 
pull up again. Get the save/power-up crystal and small med-pack on the 
walkway near the dead guy. Take a standing jump-grab from the end of the 
walkway to the ledge below. (There's nothing to grab but pressing Action 
alters Lara's trajectory so she doesn't bang her head on the rocks.) Drop 
back to hang from the ledge, then traverse left and pull up. Take a 
standing jump to the next ledge on the left.

WOODEN BRIDGE: Follow the passageway to the wooden bridge. Before crossing, 
find a secret: At the beginning of the bridge, turn right. Take a running 
jump to grab the rock ledge. Pull up and take a standing jump to grab the 
ledge beyond. The chimes sound for SECRET #2. Jump to the next ledge to 
pick up the grenades. Then return to the bridge the way you came.

Now you can choose to go INSIDE THE TEMPLE on the other side of the bridge 
or climb down to the ground and continue along the other path (Serpent 
Stones). If you choose the latter, resume the walk-through below at the 
***. (NOTE: You only need to find three secrets in this level for a perfect 
score. But to get all four, you should climb down now or after exploring 
the temple ahead.)

INSIDE THE TEMPLE: Enter the building, take a few steps to the left--not 
too far, though, or you'll run into a whirling blade. Then turn and take 
out the tribesman who sneaks up behind you from the right. When the coast 
is clear, crawl under the blade into the next room. Lara looks up at the 
window in the ceiling as you enter. Yes, this is a hint. Don't step into 
the light or you'll trigger a poisoned-dart trap and raise the spikes in 
the trench ahead. Instead, go around the corner to the right and press the 
button to cover the window and deactivate the traps.

Now, pick up the large med-pack and jump across the stream. Crawl over to 
the save/power-up crystal to avoid more poisoned-dart traps.

Now you can choose to slide down the chute to THE VILLAGE (pick up the 
walk-through below at the ****), jump into the water to land on a ledge on 
the FACE OF THE TEMPLE (continue below at the *****), or backtrack to the 
WOODEN BRIDGE and climb down the rocks (continue below at the ***). (NOTE: 
To get all four secrets, you should choose the second or third option.)

(**) INTO THE CAVES (Serpent Stones):  Slide down the slope into the cave. 
Continue past a small pool and climb up into an overgrown area. A hostile 
tribesman lays in wait. Take him out then continue on to a swampy area with 
a wooden bridge above.

(***NOTE: If you're coming into this area from the bridge above, you can 
head away from the swamp to meet the tribesman mentioned in the paragraph 
above. Otherwise, go on from here.)

Take a running jump to grab the block in the middle of the quicksand. Pull 
up at either corner to avoid the poisoned darts. Turn right and take a 
running jump to the rock ledge with the large med-pack. A standing jump 
will get you back onto the rock pillar. Then take another running jump to 
the other side of the swamp.

Follow the path, killing another native along the way. You'll soon come to 
a huge temple near a very steep drop-off. Before going on, backtrack to 
where the path bends back toward the quicksand. Climb onto the rocks with 
the green tops, go forward, turn right and climb onto the bent tree trunk. 
(You're now facing the quicksand and the wooden bridge.) Climb up to the 
rock ledge behind the tree. Turn around and head to the left along the 
ledge. Jump to the branch, then to the triangular green ledge, and from 
there, jump around the corner to grab the square stone ledge with the 
shotgun shells. Return the way you came to the ledge above the bent trunk.

This time jump to the thick branch on the right side of the tree trunk. 
Follow the branch to the stone ledge at the end. Take a running jump to 
grab the next branch and pick up the red SERPENT STONE--one of three. Go to 
the other end of the branch and climb into the alcove for SECRET #3--Desert 
Eagle clips. (NOTE: For some, this will be the second secret.)

THE FACE OF THE TEMPLE: Take a running jump to the side of the temple. Land 
on the sloped green ledge just above the torch. Slide down to the flat spot 
next to the torch. Jump into the pool below and let the current carry Lara 
over the edge to land on the small, square ledge between the two 
waterfalls. Alternately, you can slide down the front of the temple, then 
climb and jump your way over to the ledge between the falls.

(*****) Take a standing jump into the opening behind the falls where you'll 
find a SERPENT STONE. Step back from the opening a bit, then take a 
standing jump (with Action) to land back on the ledge between the falls.

Look to the left and you'll see a save/power-up crystal. Take a running 
jump to grab the stone ledge ahead. Follow the path to the crystal. Then 
retrace your steps back to the ledge between the falls (a standing jump 
will take you from the greenish ledge to the ledge between the falls).

[NOTE: If you came in via the waterfall from the temple above, the serpent 
stone behind the falls will be the first one you've found. After obtaining 
the save/power-up crystal, climb up to the jungle area on the right to 
locate another crystal and secret (labeled SECRET #3, above). You can go 
back as far as the cave near the lagoon if you like, using the walk-through 
backwards if you need it. Make all the necessary pick-ups then return to 
the temple on the cliff face, jump across the tops of the waterfalls to the 
far side of the temple, and resume the walk-through below at the ******.]

If you now have two serpent stones, take a running jump to grab the ladder. 
(Don't let go; there are deadly spikes below.) Climb up to the opening at 
the top right. Continue through the passageway to another ladder. Climb to 
the top.

(******) There's a square pillar with an angled top close to the edge of 
the cliff. Climb on top of it to get a small med-pack. Drop down on the 
safe side, then go to the back right corner of this area. Climb up onto the 
block and shoot the tribesman inside the doorway to the left. (BUG NOTE: Do 
not place any serpent stones into the snake receptacles until you have all 
three. Several people have reported a bug where they placed one stone then 
went to get the other two. When they came back they were unable to open the 
gates.)

Jump from the lowest block to the ledge near the doorway. Turn around and 
take a running jump to grab the rock ledge above where you just stood. Turn 
right and take a running jump to the gray stone ledge near the temple. Jump 
over to the ledge with the third SERPENT STONE.

Slide down the side of the building. Now take your three stones and place 
them in the receptacles to open the three gates. Slide down into the 
village below.

(****) THE VILLAGE:  When you enter the village, 2 tribesmen attack--one 
with a spiked club comes from near the huts, the other with a blowgun is on 
the ridge to the left. (NOTE: If you came down through the serpent stone 
hallway, you'll be on the same level with the tribesman with the blow gun. 
You'll be able to pick up an additional small med-pack here, which isn't 
accessible from below. When you've got it, slide down the slope.)

There are four huts in this area. As you explore them, you'll meet 2 more 
tribesmen. Inside the closest hut is a rocket. Behind it, on a ledge near 
the chute (the one you came down if you slid in from the dart-trap temple) 
are some grenades. (You donít need to jump to get these, just face the wall 
and press Action + Forward.)

The big hut with the fire has a small med-pack, and there's a save/power-up 
crystal behind the hut to the right of the pool. The hut next to that one 
is a quicksand trap; you can't get the med-pack, so don't bother trying. 
Beyond this is a path with a pit of spikes.

When you've gotten everything, go up the narrow path to the left of the 
pool. This leads to a tree house and a stone building near a swamp. You'll 
meet a hostile native on the path. Climb onto the rock at the corner of the 
stone building. Kill another man lurking at the front of the building. Jump 
across to the alcove where he was standing and turn the wheel to raise a 
trapdoor over the spikes back in the village area.

Return to the village, taking out 2 more tribesmen on the way. Head to the 
left toward the path over the spike pit. Pull up onto the ledge above the 
pit to get a box of shotgun shells then continue through to the other side 
of the village.

Follow the wall to the right. In the back right corner is a dark cave. This 
is SECRET #4. (NOTE: For some, this will be the third secret.) A villager 
sneaks up from behind when you try to pick up the shotgun shells and MP5 
clips. You'll also find some flares in one of the huts. And when you go 
through the narrow alley behind the huts, a guy with a blowgun appears 
behind you.

One of the huts on the upper level has a wheel inside, which opens the 
trapdoor into the tree house with the ladder. When you turn it, another 
villager attacks from behind. Kill him, then climb up into the tree house. 
The window opens as you approach. Take a running jump from the windowsill 
to the wooden ledge to the left.

Enter the stone building and take out the tribesman in the hallway on the 
right. You can't get over the burners yet. So instead go down the hallway 
and jump from the window to the bamboo platform behind the huts. Go forward 
to the far corner, jumping the gap and picking up some harpoons in a dark 
area on the left. Jump up to the flat spot on the roof. Then use the bars 
in the trees to traverse over the spikes. Cross over to the next hut (the 
one with the balcony with wooden railings). Press the button to raise a 
platform over the burners in the stone building. Kill the angry villager 
who appears when you do this. Then climb down and back up to the burners.

Take two hops back from the edge of the burners, then a running jump to 
land on the platform. A standing jump from the edge of the platform will 
land you near the button in the alcove ahead. Press it to open the gate, 
roll, and take out the tribesman who appears out of nowhere.

Do not press the other button in the neighboring alcove. This only turns on 
the burner beneath. Instead, go left into the hallway. There's a nasty 
double circular blade trap here. You can sprint past it or walk as close as 
you can to it then hop back and take a running jump as it moves away from 
you. Continue to the end of the hallway and turn the wheel. This opens the 
door next to it, along with the trapdoor in the pool. Slide backwards out 
the window and safety drop to the ground. Jump into the pool and swim 
through the trapdoor you just opened and along the underwater passage. You 
can harpoon the crocodile or swim through quickly and climb out. Then 
either shoot it from above or just move on.

Follow the hallway to an opening. Take a standing jump to grab the edge of 
the tree house and pull up to end the level.

A cut scene follows: Lara enters the hut and meets an Australian soldier 
whose leg has been cut off below the knee. He says he thinks the tribesmen 
did it but it was dark when it happened so he can't be completely sure. The 
soldier tells Lara that his plane crashed in the mountains, some of his men 
vanished under mysterious circumstances and the rest fled. Lara asks if he 
knows a safe route through the swamp. He says he won't go with her but he 
gives her a map and asks that if she meets any of his men, she should warn 
them away from this area.



SOUTH PACIFIC PART 2:  CRASH SITE

Kills: 56 Items: 23, plus 2 keys and 4 save/power-up crystal Secrets: 3*

*The number of kills and items are approximate and vary depending on the 
actions of your enemies and allies. Note that one of the regular pick-ups 
here will be the MP5 ASSAULT RIFLE if you didn't get it in the previous 
level. Be sure to find all the secrets so you can access the bonus level at 
the end of the game.

(BUG NOTE: I also encountered a bug where using grenades and/or the big gun 
inside the airplane to kill the raptors resulted in an inaccurate 
count--more than double the actual number of kills--so you may not want to 
rely on the end-of-level statistics here.)

Objectives: Get across the swamp to the crash site. Retrieve two keys to 
activate the plane's weaponry and, finally, find the exit.

Walk-through: Drop down from the hut and go toward the swamp. (A mysterious 
earthquake prevents you from going back to the area in the previous level.) 
Check your inventory for the SWAMP MAP given to Lara by the Aussie. (NOTE 
FOR NEW PLAYERS: Use Escape then Up to access the top inventory ring. This 
is where you'll find things you've collected, like keys, artifacts and this 
map.) Use this to help you cross the swamp safely. All of the solid squares 
in the swamp have green plants on them, but not all of the squares with 
plants are safe. The X's on the map show approximately where each safe 
square is.

When you near the far side, look to the left for an opening in the rock. 
Jump to the square just below it and climb in for SECRET #1--2 sets of MP5 
clips. Climb down from the opening, return to the previous safe square, 
then take a running jump to the bank.

Before sliding down the slope into the next area, look to the left just 
inside the opening. Take a running jump to the block with the grenades. 
Then continue to the bottom.

A raptor comes through the fog from the right. (NOTE: The raptors in this 
game are much harder to kill than the ones in TR1; however, they seem to 
move more slowly and don't attack with the same viciousness. You can 
usually find a raised block to stand on for safety. Also, some will run 
away after you shoot them a bit, and you'll need to draw them out in order 
to resume the fight.) When you've killed this raptor, go through the fog, 
past the small pond, and climb up the rocks into the opening above.

Continue to a clearing with the downed plane. Another raptor emerges from 
behind the trees on the left. Kill it and continue exploring. You can go 
into the various areas around the plane--CAVE WITH SWITCHES, COMPSOGNATHUS 
ROOM, T. REX NEST and RAPTOR POOL (below)--in any order you want to.

CAVE WITH SWITCHES: (NOTE: If you're not interested in getting all the pick 
ups, you can skip over this area entirely--or take the shortcuts described 
below at the ** to get the goodies without dealing with all the switches.) 
Return to the entrance to the airplane area from the foggy area where you 
killed the first raptor. Stand with this doorway on Lara's right. Above and 
behind is a rectangular stone ledge. Ahead is a short, green wall with a 
sloping base. Walk/jump to the left corner of this green wall, where 
there's a flat spot on which Lara can stand. Jump to grab the edge of the 
green wall and traverse a little to the right, to the middle of the wall. 
Pull up and backflip onto the stone ledge above. Turn around and you'll see 
a crawlspace.

Alternately, you can reach this spot by taking the more obvious but longer 
route through the treetops: Face the nose of the plane then go back to the 
left (near where the second raptor came from). Jump onto the gray stone 
block jutting out from the green corner. Turn around (face the plane) and 
jump to grab the ledge above. Pull up, then jump from the edge to grab the 
handholds in the tree branch above. Traverse to the trunk and drop down. 
Walk along the branch around to the left. Take a running jump to grab the 
handholds on the tree trunk. Climb up to the ledge. Jump to grab the 
handholds on the branch above. Then traverse nearly to the end and let go. 
Here you get a wide-angle view of the area, showing a rock ladder leading 
down. Climb down and hang on at the bottom. Traverse to the left until you 
can pull up.

Crawl into the tunnel and drop down in the next room. Climb onto the low 
block and jump to grab the bars on the ceiling. Traverse forward then hook 
around to the right to get to the doorway above. Drop down.

Hop down to the ledge below the doorway. Go around to the right and use the 
first switch to rearrange the bars on the ceiling. Take a standing jump 
with Action to land on the pillar with the save/power-up crystal. (If you 
miss, you'll need to restart, because all the slopes lead down into the pit 
of spikes.) Jump and grab the ledge under the door and climb back up. From 
the doorway, use the ceiling bars to traverse straight across to the other 
side. Drop down and climb into the alcove with the second switch. Pull it 
to rearrange the bars again.

Jump/climb back to the doorway via the pillar where you got the save 
crystal. On the way, use the first switch again to rearrange the ceiling 
bars. This time, traverse all the way around the center to the far side of 
the room. Traverse to the right until Lara is up against the climbable wall 
(on the back of the central structure). Drop to grab it. Then climb down to 
the bottom. Position Lara on the lowest rung that allows her to have her 
feet on the ladder, then back flip into the alcove behind. (NOTE: If you're 
having trouble with this jump, try climbing all the way down, so Lara is 
hanging by her hands from the lowest possible rung. Then tap the Forward 
key just until her feet come up onto the ladder. Now take the back flip 
from here.)  Use the third switch to raise the last section of bars up on 
the ceiling and open a metal grate nearby.

Jump to grab the rock ladder and climb up to the alcove you just opened. 
Turn around and take a running jump to the long, angled ledge to the right 
of the switch alcove. Slide back and grab the edge of the slope. Traverse 
to the second square from the left, pull up and back flip onto the pillar 
where the save crystal was. Jump/climb back up to the doorway.

Now you can traverse all the way around to the exit. Pick up the Uzi clips 
in the corner and climb out onto a ledge across from the airplane. If 
you've got the two keys and ready to go down into the plane, take a running 
jump to grab the branch ahead, and jump from there to the fuselage. 
Otherwise, climb down the rocks to the ground.

(**Note: If you just want the goodies without the work, you can go into the 
left cave as far as the crystal then go back out the way you came. To get 
the Uzi clips, climb onto the plane at the front right, when facing the 
nose, and walk across the top to the back left. Jump to the tree branch and 
from there to the cave opening. Go in and get the clips.)

COMPSOGNATHUS ROOM: (NOTE: Completing this area isn't necessary to finish 
the game, but it's quick and easy if you want to do it.) On the right side 
of the plane (when facing the nose), just before the hummock separating the 
front and back areas of the aircraft, there's an opening on the right. Hop 
down and get some MP5 clips. Continue to an open area with a dead soldier 
and raptor. As you enter the gate closes behind you. As you poke around, a 
pack of 5 tiny compsognathus emerge to gnaw on the raptor carcass--and on 
Lara. Get them out of the way and pick up the large med-pack and more MP5 
clips. (NOTE: If you don't already have the MP5 ASSAULT RIFLE, you'll get 
it here instead of clips.) Use the 2 switches in the alcoves to open the exit.

T. REX NEST (Cmdr. Bishop's Key): Drop into the pit near the front of the 
aircraft (to the left if Lara's back is to the nose of the plane). Climb 
through the open area. Pick up the MP5 clips just inside. (NOTE: Again, if 
you don't already have the MP5 ASSAULT RIFLE, you'll get it here instead of 
clips.) Now you'll meet a soldier and 2 raptors. You can help the soldier 
kill the raptors or use the raptors to help you in the upcoming battle. 
(See the strategy note below.)

In the flat area at the bottom of the embankment is a pack of 4 
compsognathus, which will give most of their attention to a nearby raptor 
carcass. You can kill them if they're pestering you. Around the corner to 
the right, beyond the pond, is a Tyrannosaurus rex nest. COMMANDER BISHOP'S 
KEY is inside the nest, along with what's left of its owner. When you take 
the key, Mama Rex returns home. You're stuck down in the lower area with 
her until you can open the doors. When you do, another raptor enters from 
above (along with any that you or the soldier didn't kill earlier).

The first door is at the right side of the embankment (when facing it from 
below). It has both an inner and outer door. When you take the key, the 
inner door opens. Throw the switch inside to open the second gate, on the 
far, left side of the pond. Here you'll find the second switch, which opens 
the outer door (near the first switch).

I found it easier to just kill all the raptors as you go along, and shoot 
Mama Rex from the relative safety of the switch alcoves or the deep part of 
the pool. But if you want to live on the edge, you might try this: Leave 
the raptors at the top alone. Slide down the embankment and go to the nest 
for Bishop's key. Run to the first switch and pull it. Run to the second 
switch and pull it. This will let in the raptors from above (between one 
and three of them, depending on how your soldier friend made out). The 
raptors will keep the T. rex busy and you can assist or just hang back and 
see how things turn out. Kill any surviving creatures and exit up the steps 
near the first switch. If the T. rex is left standing, you can use the 
switch alcoves for cover if you need to or exit the area. She can't fit 
through the narrow passage. If any raptors survive, you can get on one of 
the ledges for safety.

Once the battle is through, make your pick-ups: 3 small med-packs--one on a 
ledge to the right of the rex nest, one on a ledge opposite the slope and a 
third in the stairway; and 3 packs of flares--two near the first switch, 
one near the second. Also, if the soldier was killed, you'll find MP5 clips 
near his body.

Go up the stairs to the top of the embankment and climb onto the long ledge 
on the left (near the bent tree). Use the Look key if necessary to spot the 
large med-pack on the tree branch running parallel to the ledge. Take a 
standing jump to grab the branch to the left of the med-pack. Pull up, grab 
the med-pack, then take another standing jump to the next branch with the 
flares. This is SECRET #2. Now climb down and exit through the tunnel back 
to the crash site.

RAPTOR POOL (Lt. Tuckerman's Key): Jump over the hummock at the side of the 
plane into the area beyond. You'll see 2 soldiers fighting a raptor. You 
can assist if you like. Just be sure not to accidentally shoot one of the 
soldiers or the others won't be as friendly as you'd like.

Go through the second doorway on the right wall (all the other openings are 
just shallow alcoves). Follow the passageway to an open area where some 
soldiers battle another raptor. There's a raised block just inside on the 
right where you can jump to safety. You'll also find some MP5 clips just 
inside the entrance. (Don't forget to check the bodies of any downed 
comrades for additional MP5 clips.)

Don't try to cross the bridge. It will collapse beneath you, plunging you 
into the piranha-infested pool. There is a place to climb out on the near 
left side, but it's better to avoid the water for now. Instead, climb a few 
trees.

Another raptor lurks in the trees above. You may be able to kill it from 
below. Climb the vine-covered wall above the raised block. When you reach 
the top, press Jump and hold it to back flip onto the angled block behind 
then spring to the branch. Finish off the raptor if you didn't already. Or 
run to the left and jump to the ledge near the back corner (above the 
entrance) to shoot the dinosaur from safety or avoid it altogether.

Now climb a little higher: Take a standing jump from the triangular ledge 
in the corner to grab the branch to the right. Pull up, jump to the stone 
ledge with the save/power-up crystal. You should be able to kill the raptor 
on the next branch from here. Jump across to the branch that bends up at 
the end (between the ledge with the save crystal and the branch where the 
raptor was standing). Take a standing jump to grab the high part of the 
branch on the left. Pull up for SECRET #3--MP5 clips.

Slide back down and walk to the end of the branch near the dangling raptor 
carcass. Take a running jump to the green ledge ahead on the left. Around 
back you'll find a small med-pack. Shoot the carcass and it will fall down 
into the pool below, attracting the attention of the hungry piranhas. Now 
you can jump down into the pool and pull the underwater lever to open the 
gate on the far side of the pool from where you entered.

Climb out of the water and kill the raptor that emerges from the building. 
Inside the building is another raptor and 3 switches. Pull them one at a 
time, jumping back onto the block to shoot the 3 raptors that enter after 
when the switches are pulled (two after the left switch, one after the 
right). (NOTE: You can kill them all, or just shoot until they run away so 
you can pull another switch.) Climb up through the trapdoor. Get the 
save/power-up crystal and LT. TUCKERMAN'S KEY (He won't be using it 
anymore.), and kill the raptor that appears out of nowhere when you do. 
Drop down and return to the other side of the pool. Follow the passageway 
back to the airplane.

INSIDE THE AIRPLANE: Climb onto the plane from the treetops/cave area (see 
above), or from the ground at the front--just around to the right when 
facing the nose. Drop through the open hatch. Take care of the raptor and 
pick up the MP5 clips. (NOTE: Again, if you don't already have the MP5 
ASSAULT RIFLE, you'll get it here instead of clips.) Use the two keys in 
the keyholes in the cockpit to open a door down below. Drop through either 
opening into the belly of the plane. Go to the front and pull the switch to 
open the back and extend the gun.

When you go out to the gun a couple of soldiers will be patrolling the 
area. As soon as you grab the big gun, a small army of raptors (30, to be 
more precise) will begin to swarm out of the doors on the left and right, 
and across the wooden bridge. The soldiers will probably kill some of them 
for you. The rest you can take out with the big gun, swiveling around and 
angling it up and down as needed. When the hullabaloo dies down, use the 
big gun to blast away the top left corner of the wall to open up the exit. 
(Press Roll to let go of the gun.) Pick up additional MP5 clips from your 
late friends. Then jump across the stream at the left side.

Alternately, run out to the big gun, then run back into the plane. You can 
use your weapon of choice (even pistols) to shoot the raptors safely from 
inside. Or, climb up onto the fuselage and take them out from above. You 
may have to dangle Lara over the side periodically to draw the raptors out 
of hiding.
Another technique you may want to try is to run out and use the big gun to 
shoot out the wall right away. Then run over to the exit, jumping the 
stream to land safely on the other side. Now you can shoot the raptors from 
there or leave them to fight it out among themselves.

Climb into the right opening near the exit to get a large med-pack and a 
save/power-up crystal. Take a running jump over to the left opening and 
exit the level.

A cut scene follows: Lara enters a temple and meets one of the natives. He 
tells her she's lucky he's fasting today, since she'd make a nice meal. She 
inspects a mural depicting a falling meteor and asks the man why his 
ancestors left Antarctica so suddenly. He tells her there was plenty of 
flesh there but also powerful evil. One of his tribe's leaders was born 
without a face and the people took that as a sign of the meteor's curse. He 
says that some time after they had settled on this island, a white man came 
with a stone--presumably one of the meteorite artifacts--and his people 
feasted that day. When Lara realizes she's not going to get any more 
information out of him, she leaves.



SOUTH PACIFIC PART 3:  MADUBU GORGE

Kills: 16 Items: 12, plus 8 save/power-up crystal Secrets: 3*

*The item count is approximate. It varies substantially depending on the 
route you take through the level. Be sure to find all the secrets so you 
can access the bonus level at the end of the game. Note that one of the 
regular pick-ups here will be the ROCKET LAUNCHER if you didn't get it in 
the previous level.

Objectives: Find a kayak. Paddle down river and locate a place where you 
can climb out of the boat. Return up river on foot to the building where 
the control for the plug is. Let the water out of the plugged pool, get 
your kayak back and paddle down into the "drain" to find the exit.

Walk-through: Go forward to the square columns. Climb up into the opening 
in the ceiling between the columns, where the bats fly out. Inside you'll 
find Uzi clips, grenades and a small med-pack. There's also a closed 
trapdoor. Below it is a room with a kayak. You can paddle down the river 
from there, but you'll miss two secrets if you do.

For either path, you'll first need to drop back down to the grassy area and 
continue forward from the start. A poison-breathing lizard climbs down from 
the ledges behind the palm tree. Another lizard lurks down on the rock 
ledge to the right. (These don't do much damage with their teeth or claws; 
however their green gaseous breath will eat away at Lara's health until you 
use a med-pack.) Kill them and climb down onto the ledge where the second 
lizard was. Jump from the lowest ledge to the square block in the middle of 
the river. (Don't let Lara fall in or she'll be killed in the rushing rapids.)

Now choose either the QUICK ROUTE (below) or the LONG ROUTE/ALL SECRETS 
(pick up the walk-through below at the **).

QUICK ROUTE: Take a running jump from the block in the river to grab the 
angled rocks on the other side of the water. Traverse to the right, pull up 
and climb/jump around the corner to the right. Push the button to open the 
trapdoor back at the starting area.

To get back there, follow the rocks the way you came. That tricky jump to 
the raised block below the drawbridge can be done by taking a running start 
and grabbing the left side of the block. Otherwise, Lara will slide down 
the slope into the river. Hop down on the other side of the raised block.

Now you can choose whether to go after an extra save crystal or not. If you 
don't want it, drop back to grab the edge and traverse back to the left 
until the square block in the river is behind you. Skip over the next 
paragraph.

If you do want the extra crystal, drop back to grab the edge and traverse 
left all the way to the corner. Let go and quickly grab the ledge below. 
Pull up and crawl forward until you can stand. Take a standing jump-grab 
(using Action lowers Lara's trajectory) to the ledge with the save/power-up 
crystal. Press the button to open the nearby trapdoor. Jump back to the 
previous ledge and climb up through this door. Now drop back and grab the 
edge and traverse to the right along the angled blocks until the square 
block in the river is behind you.

Pull up onto the slope and quickly back flip to land on the block in the 
river. Turn around and take a running jump to grab the ledge where you 
climbed down. Climb back up to the start and go into the building. Drop 
through the trapdoor you just opened and climb into the kayak.

(KAYAK NOTES: This craft is quite difficult to maneuver. The most useful 
moves are the paddle turns (Walk + Left/Right) and the back paddle, which 
slows the craft and can fight currents more easily than regular forward 
paddling. Use Action to climb into the boat at the side and Roll plus Left 
or Right to climb out. Lara will only climb out in the calm water of the 
pool where you'll end up. Also note that the river is laced with traps that 
are tripped by ropes stretched between rocks. Red ropes are bad; green are 
good. Lara will take damage when she goes through spikes/blades or when 
taking a long drop. So don't hesitate to use med-packs as you go.)

Paddle out of the room and steer down the river to the left. The current 
carries you around the corner to the right. Try to steer with it so you're 
facing forward. Stay to the middle as you go over the falls so you can snag 
a save/power-up crystal. Next you'll go under a wooden bridge. Stay to the 
right in the next turn to avoid a trip wire. If you do accidentally go over 
it, back paddle to avoid the falling rocks ahead. Then continue. Pick up 
the walk-through below at the ****.

(**) LONG ROUTE/ALL SECRETS: From the block in the middle of the river, 
take a running jump to grab the angled rocks on the other side. Traverse 
all the way to the left. Let go and quickly grab the ledge below. Pull up 
and crawl forward until you can stand. Take a standing jump-grab (using 
Action lowers Lara's trajectory) to the ledge with the save/power-up 
crystal. Press the button to open the nearby trapdoor. Jump back to the 
previous ledge and climb up through this door.

Use the handholds on the rock arch above to traverse across the river. Drop 
to the ledge below. Drop back and grab the edge. Traverse to the right 
until you can pull up. Turn around and take a running jump past the corner 
to the angled rocks, slide back and grab the edge. Traverse to the right a 
bit, pull up and jump into the doorway.

INTO THE CAVE: Go past the closed door through the only open doorway. Slide 
down the ramp. Slide again and jump from the slope to clear the spikes 
below. Drop down to a dark area. Crawl through the low opening on the right 
and kill the poison-breathing lizard. Follow the passageway, cross the 
wooden bridge and continue to a rock bridge above the water. Jump to the 
bridge to get the save/power-up crystal. Turn around and kill the lizard in 
the doorway where you came from before jumping back. Return the way you 
came through the dark crawlspace.

Now continue along the main passage and go up the steps, killing another 
lizard on the way. Drop into the grated alcove and use the button to open 
the door you passed when you entered this area. Return to the area with the 
spikes. WALK into the spike area. Then use the climbable wall on the left 
to get back to the room at the top.

Go through the door you just opened to emerge above the water. Below and to 
the left is a waterfall. Hop down to the flat block below the doorway. Then 
take a standing jump into the opening behind the waterfall. This is SECRET 
#1. Walk to the back edge and kill the lizard in the cave below. Drop down 
and pick up the MP5 clips. Then climb back up to the entrance.

Jump to grab the ceiling and traverse around to the doorway at the far 
right. Slide down the ramp and jump to grab the edge of the pillar. (Be 
careful or you'll land on the burner below. If Lara does catch fire, 
there's a pool of water in the middle of this room to douse the flames and 
a place to climb out on the far side.) Kill the poison-breathing lizard on 
the other side of the room from the top of the first pillar if you can.

The middle pillar, with the save/power-up crystal, ignites when Lara steps 
on it, so avoid this. Instead, take a running jump from the first pillar 
over the second to grab the edge of the third pillar. You'll get the 
crystal in the air. Now pull up and take a running jump to the doorway.

Pick up the small med-pack on the left. Hurry past the poisoned dart trap 
on the right. Slide down the ramp. At the opening to the next area, jump to 
grab the ceiling. Traverse forward to the wall, then let go. Climb down and 
get the save/power-up crystal. (Be careful not to fall into the 
piranha-infested pool.) Then climb/traverse back toward the entrance and 
around to the other doorway.

SECRET IN THE THATCHED HUT: Crawl through to a ledge high above the water. 
The thatched hut on the left is where you're headed. Turn left and take a 
running jump across the gap to grab the rock ladder. Climb to the top. To 
the left is an opening leading down to a pool with another kayak. You'll 
return there in a few minutes.

First, a side trip to the hut: Position Lara's back against the rock at the 
right side of this ledge. (The back of this block is steeply angled.) Walk 
five steps forward, then back flip to land on the steep slope. Slide back 
and grab the edge. Traverse to the right and drop to the small, wooden 
platform. This is SECRET #2. Jump to the next block to the right then over 
to the hut area. Go around the front. Inside you'll find a large med-pack 
and a rocket.

Return to the wooden platform. The jump back to the rocks near the 
waterfall is very tricky. Line Lara up so she's facing the tall, angled 
block to the left of the falls and below the ledge you jumped from to reach 
the rock ladder. Make sure she's also angled just to the left of the 
overhanging rock, or she'll bang her head when she jumps. Now take a 
running jump WITHOUT GRABBING and use the Right directional key to turn 
Lara back toward the lower block where she needs to land. It may take 
several tries to finesse the angle, but it is possible.

KAYAK ROOM/HEADING DOWN RIVER: Climb up, jump back to the rock ladder, 
climb to the top and go down into the passage to the kayak. Kill the 2 
crocodiles in the pool from the ledge. Then jump in and pull the underwater 
lever to open the gate. Now get ready for some white-water action. (See the 
KAYAK NOTES, above, for some tips on maneuvering.)

Steer out of the room, back paddling as you come down the chute. If you can 
manage it, cut to the right into a pool where you can find a save/power-up 
crystal. If you miss it, don't worry; there will be others. Stay to the 
right as you go over the first falls to avoid the trip wire on the left and 
the big rock in the middle. If you do accidentally go over the wire, back 
paddle to avoid the falling rocks ahead. Then continue.

(****) The current in this next pool sweeps you to the right toward some 
slicing blades. Back paddle to the left to go over the green trip rope that 
turns off the blades, then continue past them.

Go over the falls, paddle turn to the left, then back paddle hard to enter 
the cave on the right with the black fronds hanging from the opening.

(NOTE: If you do get swept off to the left, you'll go over a steep drop-off 
then through some spikes and slicing blades. Don't back paddle. Just get 
through it as quickly as you can, feeding Lara med-packs as you go. Next, 
you'll go over a waterfall into a pool with a BIG PLUG in the center. Cut 
to the left to enter the cave where the third secret is. Pick up the 
walk-through below at the *****. Or, if you don't want to deal with these 
hazards, reload a saved game and try again.)

On entering the cave with the black fronds, quickly choose your path (LEFT 
or RIGHT CHANNEL, below) and back paddle as needed to get on the side you 
want. Each has good and bad points. On the right side, you'll probably take 
more damage, but you can get two extra save/power-up crystals if you play 
it right. It's also possible, though not at all easy, to start on the left 
side and cross over to the right after crossing the green trip line (see 
below). You may also be able to paddle turn and back paddle to slalom 
between the blocks and avoid the red trip lines altogether. Taking this run 
facing upstream may help you to do this. I found it nearly impossible--A 
good "Expert Challenge."

LEFT CHANNEL: First you'll go over a red trip rope that activates a 
poisoned dart trap. Next, you'll go over a green trip rope, which causes a 
save/power-up crystal to appear on a block just below in the middle of the 
stream. (You'll have to get it later on foot.) Then you'll pass another red 
trip rope that raises some spikes. Beyond that is a building with a zip 
line, where you'll be returning later. You may be able to cut across the 
stream to the right here to avoid the next hazard: a very high waterfall. 
Either back paddle like mad as you crest the falls to slow your descent, or 
make sure Lara's health is at 100%, as she'll take nearly that much damage. 
If you can, aim for the middle of the falls and get the save/power-up 
crystal on the way down. Once you reach the pool below the big falls, 
you'll need to do some backtracking. Paddle up the rapids to the pool above 
with the HUGE PLUG--i.e., the rapids on the left side of the wider 
waterfall. Now pick up the walk-through below at the *****.)

RIGHT CHANNEL: Follow the right channel down past some red trip ropes that 
raise spikes. (Use med-packs as needed as you go.) You'll end up in a pool 
with a chain in the middle attached to a HUGE PLUG. Don't go down the next 
set of rapids. (If you do, just paddle back paddle up the rapids again to 
the pool with the PLUG.)

(*****) Steer into the cave with the brick platforms flanking the sides. 
Head around the corner and paddle under the falls into the cave with the 
save/power-up crystal. This is SECRET #3. There are some items on the 
ledges near the falls, which you can get later on when you pass this way on 
foot.

Return to the plug room and paddle through the tunnel to the right of the 
raised alcove with the wooden door. (If necessary, back paddle to fight the 
current.) At the top, go into the cave on the left. Here you'll find a calm 
pool with a crocodile swimming in it. Jump out of the kayak (Roll + 
Left/Right) and swim to the ledge to climb out. Kill the poison-breathing 
lizard on the steps first; then take care of the croc.

UP RIVER ON FOOT: Go up the steps and hop down into the opening near the 
torch. Take a standing jump to grab the handholds on the ceiling above the 
water. Traverse across the pool, using careful timing to pass the two 
fire-breathing-head blocks. Continue to traverse into the passageway 
leading to the third secret. At the end of the traverse, hook to the left 
and drop onto the block.

Turn around and take a running jump across the river to the next ledge. 
Enter the alcove and pick up the ROCKET LAUNCHER. (NOTE: This will be a 
single rocket if you already have the launcher.) Climb up and follow the 
short passage to an opening. Safety drop (or climb down) to the ledge 
below. Follow the ledges toward the falls where you got the third secret. 
Pick up the large med-pack. Take a running jump across the water to grab 
the ledge with the MP5 clips. Turn around. Now return to the other side by 
taking a running jump from the right side of the whitish block (next to the 
block where the clips were). Grab the ledge opposite (to the left of the 
triangular ledge where the med-pack was). Pull up and follow the ledges 
back to the right.

Rather than jumping to the next ledge on the right (where you came from), 
climb into the curved alcove on the left. Use the handholds in the wall to 
climb up to the thin ledge on the right. Grab the handholds in the ceiling 
and traverse across the water. (Be careful of the flame trap.) When you 
reach the falls, traverse to the left. Drop onto the ledge below. Get the 
flares and shotgun shells in the cave off to the right. Then traverse back 
across the falls to the other side and drop to the ledge. Turn left and 
follow the path upstream.

Take a running jump to the square ledge to the left of the spikes and 
blades. Turn around and take a running jump to grab the handholds on the 
wall on the other side of the spikes. Climb up and to the left as far as 
you can. You'll come to a flat ledge. The first (right) square is white 
with mist and is very slippery, so don't drop there. The square just to the 
left is safe. (Now you're level with the cave opening with the black fronds.)

Follow the ledge to the opening. Turn around and climb down into the deep 
pit. There's a boulder trap at the bottom. Run forward to the step and duck 
so the boulder rolls over Lara's head. Repeat this for the second boulder. 
The third boulder is dangling from the ceiling just inside the next room. 
On either side of the walkway are steep slopes with flames below. And there 
are more flames inside the doorway at the far left end of the walkway. You 
can outrun the boulder, jump into the doorway and hope you don't get 
toasted, or try one of these techniques: Either, stand in the middle of the 
square under the boulder. Turn to either side and side flip out onto the 
walkway. Immediately jump back and grab the edge of the walkway. Hang until 
the boulder rolls by, then pull up. OR, walk forward under the boulder 
about 6 steps (any farther will cause it to drop). Then, turn right, drop 
back and hang from the walkway. Traverse to the left, pull up, and the 
boulder will stay where it is.

Now jump into the doorway near the boulder, taking care to avoid the 
burner. Take a standing jump from the MIDDLE of the square near the doorway 
to clear the flames. Immediately run forward to the step and duck to avoid 
yet another boulder. Continue forward and up to emerge near the river again.

Take a running jump to the first ledge on the right. Use the handholds on 
the right wall to climb over to the next ledge. Crawl through the low 
opening to a doorway near the rapids where the zip line is. Take a standing 
jump to the nearest block in the middle of the river then a running jump to 
the pile of rocks. (Be sure to jump to the right of the rock hanging down 
from the ceiling.) Take a standing jump to the block with the zip line.

If you ran over the green trip line earlier, there will be a save/power-up 
crystal on the square block just downstream. Walk down to the bottom of the 
rock outcropping and take a running jump to land near the crystal. Turn 
around and take a running jump (without pressing Action) back to the bottom 
of the rocks below the zip line. Climb up and ride the zip line down to the 
building.

ROOM WITH PLUG MECHANISM: Drop down inside (near the chain) and climb up 
the opposite wall (with the carved faces). Kill the lizard in the hallway 
on the right. Go around to the left and use the switch to pull the plug in 
the pool below. Follow the dark passage. The torch at the end lights and 
another lizard emerges near the end. Kill it and hop/slide down the ramps 
back to the room with your kayak.

Make sure Lara is at full health. Then paddle out into the plug room. Let 
the whirlpool carry you down the drain into the room below. Climb out of 
the boat and either harpoon the crocodile, or swim to one of the ledges and 
shoot it from there. Swim under one the ledge with the wooden door above 
and pull the underwater lever to open the door. This also lets in 2 more 
crocodiles. You can kill them or just exit the level.



SOUTH PACIFIC PART 4:  TEMPLE OF PUNA

Kills: 9 Items: 10, plus the ELEMENT 115 artifact (or ORA DAGGER**) and 2 
save/power-up crystals Secrets: 1*

*The number of kills may vary (see the last area in the level). Be sure to 
find all the secrets so you can access the bonus level at the end of the 
game. Note that one of the regular pick-ups here will be the DESERT EAGLE 
PISTOL if you didn't get it in a previous level.

Objectives: Make your way through the trap-riddled temple to take on the 
South Pacific boss and claim his artifact.

Walk-through: Kill 2 natives with blowguns on the stairs to the right. Go 
up the steps past them. You'll meet 2 more guys with blowguns on the way to 
the top. When you get there, crawl through the small opening.

Pick up the small med-pack in the doorway. The next room has sloped sides, 
a locked door, 4 buttons (to open that door) and a row of interconnected 
rolling blades. When the blades roll past toward the right, slide down and 
sprint forward to the save/power-up crystal. Keep moving, arc around to the 
left and run up the slope. Position Lara at one of the seams between the 
square with the button on it and an adjacent square. Duck and you'll be 
safe there from the blades. (NOTE: You can also find safe spots to stand in 
the corners of the room, but I found this method easier.)

When the blades roll away, stand up and push the first button. Then 
sidestep back to the seam and duck again. The next time the blades roll 
away, run over to one of the seams near the second button. Duck, wait for 
the blades to roll away again, then push the button. Duck near the seam 
again if necessary. Then, when the blades roll away, follow them down but 
wait on the downslope. When they turn and roll down toward you, take a 
running jump over them. (NOTE: Make sure you run straight forward from the 
seam area so you jump over the blade at the "axle.") Run up the slope and 
repeat the duck-run-press maneuver for the remaining two buttons. Then when 
the blades roll away, sprint down through the open door.

Climb up into the archway. Below is a room with 3 switches. When you slide 
in, the spiked ceiling begins to descend. Quickly pull out the movable 
block (the only carved one) from the left wall. That will stop the ceiling. 
(Pulling all of the switches does the same thing, but the block does it 
much more easily.) Now pull the 3 switches to open the gate.

Safety drop through the opening. Enter the next area, pick up the small 
med-pack and go left to the switch. This opens the gate at the other end of 
the room and arms the boulder trap. Turn around, sprint for the gate and 
cut to the right onto the perpendicular path. Another boulder rolls in from 
the left, so keep going until you reach the archway where it's safe. You'll 
get a save/power-up crystal on the way. Press Look as you go, so you don't 
get disoriented by Lara's "vision" of the rolling boulder. And watch out 
for the break-away tiles. There's some kind of freaky yellow lava below.

The next area is actually where you started. There are 3 more locals with 
blowguns waiting for you--one on the left and two on the right. One of the 
guys on the left drops a small med-pack when he dies. Take it and go back 
up the stairs the way you went earlier.

This time the small door above the bend in the stairs is open. To reach it, 
go all the way to the top of the stairs, take a standing jump to grab the 
carved wall, traverse to the left and climb into the doorway. This is the 
level's ONLY SECRET. Inside you'll find 3 sets of Desert Eagle clips, 
flares and a large med-pack. (NOTE: If you don't already have the DESERT 
EAGLE PISTOL, you will get it here in place of clips.)

Safety drop out of the opening and go back down the stairs to the bottom. 
Go forward at the intersection to the gate, which is now open. Slide down 
the ramp into the throne room.

Pick up the 2 small med-packs at the side spokes before or after the fight. 
When you go up the steps at the back of the throne, it turns around and the 
battle with the boss--apparently he's called PUNA, since this is his 
temple--begins.

It's possible to defeat him with pistols, but it goes very quickly with 
Uzis or the Desert Eagle. You can devise your own strategy, but here's what 
worked for me: Walk up the stairs. As soon as Puna's chair begins to turn 
around, start shooting and backflip and find the center of the platform. 
(You don't want to fall off the edge or you'll have to start over.) 
Immediately jump to the left or right, then back to the center, to the 
other side, then back to the center. Keep repeating the side flips while 
shooting. He can't hit Lara with those deadly energy bolts as long as she 
keeps moving.

Depending on which weapon you use, he may have time to put up an energy 
shield and unleash one or more lizards to help him. At this point, ignore 
him--he won't attack Lara, and Lara's bullets can't penetrate the shield. 
Instead, quickly kill the lizards and use a med-pack to antidote their 
poison if necessary. When the lizards fall, go back to shooting the boss. 
Pretty soon, his chair will start to vibrate. Then you'll know it's over. 
At this point, you can stop shooting; soon after, he'll explode.

Retrieve the ELEMENT 115 artifact and head for the cold place! (**NOTE: In 
some versions of the game, this will be the ORA DAGGER artifact; you'll get 
Element 115 in the last Nevada level.)


BONUS LEVEL:  ALL HALLOWS
NOTE: In order to access this level, you need to find all of the secrets in 
the game (or cheat).

Kills: 2  Items: 15, plus 1 Key and 3 save/power-up crystals  Secrets: 0

(NOTE: On the PlayStation version, you start this level with pistols only. 
The only weapon-pick up is the UZIS. PC players carry over their weapons 
and ammo from the Meteorite Cavern level.)

Walk-through: As you slide down the chute, jump and roll to face uphill, 
and grab the end of the slide. Let go and quickly press Action again to 
grab a seam in the wall below the chute. Traverse to the left along the 
seam until you can pull up into a crawlspace. Inside is a spiked area with 
grates on the ceiling to traverse over it. On the opposite ledge you'll 
find a save/power-up crystal and flares. Traverse back to the crawlspace, 
go through and safety drop to the ground.

[NOTE: If you miss this pick-up and don't want to bother restarting the 
level, you can also get another way: First, climb onto the cement block to 
the left of the dome (left when Lara's back is to the entrance chute). Then 
take a running jump to the flat spot on the dome just to the right of the 
cement pillar. Turn right and from here take a running jump to grab the 
crevice. Traverse to the left to reach the crawlspace.

Now you need to make your way up to the top of the room via the suspended 
platforms, making a couple of pick-ups on the way. Climb onto the cement 
block to the left of the dome (left when Lara's back is to the entrance 
chute). Pull up onto the platform above. Take a running jump to the 
L-shaped platform ahead. Walk to the end and take another running jump to 
grab the next platform. Go to the right end and again run and jump to the 
next ledge. (The tall cement pillars are now on your right.)

Vault up onto the next low ledge. Now take a standing jump from the edge of 
the ledge to the angled platform ahead (the right side of this platform is 
flat and has a railing across it). Pull up onto the platform above, then 
the next ledge above that, where you'll find some Uzi clips. (NOTE: For PSX 
players this will be the UZIS themselves, rather than clips.) Safety drop 
twice to get back down to the ledge with one sloped side. Jump up to grab 
the grate above and traverse forward, past the railing. Drop to land on the 
small square platform. Take a standing jump to grab the opening and crawl 
in to get a small med-pack and a save/power-up crystal. Crawl back out and 
safety drop to the ground. (NOTE: This will lower Lara's health by about 
25%. You'll need full health before dropping through the cathedral ceiling, 
so, unless you have others, hang onto the med-pack until then.)

Climb/jump back up again to the ledge next to the cement pillar. (Earlier 
you jumped from here to the platform that's sloped on the left and flat on 
the right.) Go to the right end and pull up onto the small, angled 
platform. Take a running jump to grab the ledge ahead. Pull up and get some 
flares. Turn around and take a running jump to land on top of the rightmost 
of the two cement pillars. (Watch out for the support cable in between.)

DROPPING THROUGH THE DOME INTO THE CATHEDRAL: Now, make sure Lara's health 
is at 100%. You'll lose nearly all of it on this next maneuver. Walk to the 
high side of the pillar and jump up to grab the grating. Traverse to the 
middle of the last square of grating. Then drop onto the other angled 
pillar. Slide back, grab the edge, and let go to drop through the 
break-away tiles in the cathedral dome, to land on a catwalk below. There's 
a large med-pack nearby for a quick fix-up.

Turn so the lit chandelier is on Lara's right, then take a running jump to 
the dark ledge ahead to the left. Pick up the flares. Turn left (toward the 
wall with only one stained glass window). Angle Lara toward the pillar 
below, which is set forward from the ledge. Hop back then take a STANDING 
jump to land on it. Climb into the hole to get Uzi clips and another large 
med-pack. (NOTE: There's another similar hole at the other end of this 
walkway. It is blocked by a trapdoor, which you'll open later.)

Stand on the pillar where you landed when you jumped from above, and take a 
standing jump to land on the BLACK-AND-WHITE TILED WALKWAY (on the left 
when you're facing the wall with two stained glass windows). There's a hall 
with a switch above, but you don't need to go there yet. Safety drop down 
to the small black-and-white tiled ledge. Turn around and take a running 
jump to grab the ledge on the right side of the central structure. Pull up 
and climb into the slightly angled alcove at the left.

Turn right and take a standing jump to grab the crevice ahead. (NOTE: If 
you miss, you can climb the wall of bookcases to reach the alcove with the 
switch.) Traverse to the left, pull up and take the large med-pack. Use the 
switch to open a door down at ground level. Now safety drop to the ground 
and climb up the bookcase on the opposite side of the room to the small 
square ledge with the small med-pack. Then safety drop to the ground.

Alternately, take a running jump from the alcove with the switch to the 
suspended platform. (NOTE: Be careful to angle the jump so you take off 
from the left side of the alcove. That way Lara doesn't bang her head on 
the ceiling and miss the jump.) Take another running jump to the tiled 
ledge ahead where there's a small med-pack. Safety drop to the ground. 
(NOTE: If you don't want to lose any health, jump back to the suspended 
platform and drop form there.)

Now head for the door you just opened (in the corner to the right of the 
pipe organ). Run across the break-away tiles with spikes below. Pull the 
switch to raise a panel with bars above the black-and-white tiled walkway. 
Use the ceiling grates to traverse back over the spikes. Then climb the 
bookcase on the left wall to the BLACK-AND-WHITE TILED WALKWAY.

THE VAULT KEY & ZIP LINE: Climb into the raised hallway and, if you didn't 
do it earlier, use the switch to open the door that will let you exit the 
level. Take a standing jump from the opening to grab the ceiling grates. 
Traverse all the way to the left. Let go and grab the ledge below. Pull up 
near the zip line. Before sliding, climb the ladder behind you and get the 
VAULT KEY. Climb back down and ride the zip line across the room. Be sure 
to let go BEFORE the end to land on the cement walkway. Otherwise, Lara 
will slide down a chute and fall to her death.

CRUSHERS AND BURNERS AND DUCTWORK (OH, MY!): Turn around and take a 
standing jump over the spikes to grab the crawlspace on the left. Crawl 
through and drop into the opening behind. A concealed door in the bookshelf 
opens. Go through it and follow the passage. Drop onto a ledge near spikes. 
Pick up the small med-pack. Then stand at the RIGHT SIDE of the ledge and 
take a standing jump to grab the ceiling grates. (Lara will still take some 
heat damage, but if you traverse across the left side or center, Lara will 
catch fire when the flames ignite). Traverse over the spikes, and let go 
when you hear a "clank" to drop into a pool between the spikes and the burner.

Swim through the tunnel, past the crusher. Climb out of the water and crawl 
through the low opening ahead. Push the button there to open a trapdoor 
above. There's also a small med-pack in the hole above the crawlspace where 
you came in. Crawl back out and climb the grating ladder.

Take a standing jump, pressing Action to lower the arc, to get over the 
orange trapdoor. (If Lara falls through, she'll slide onto the burner 
below. You can jump into the water to put out the flames, but you'll have 
to swim past the crusher again to get back to the ladder.) Continue 
forward, into the main room. The door will close behind you. Pull up onto 
the pillar on the right.

THE VAULT: Drop through the trapdoor you just opened into the water below. 
Climb out in a room with a locked door and two grated alcoves. Shoot out 
the grating on the left alcove to get some flares. The right alcove has a 
switch that opens a door so you can get back into the main room. This 
switch also turns on alarms and arms the nearby blade trap. You can avoid 
this alcove altogether if you pulled the switch in the alcove above the 
BLACK-AND-WHITE TILED WALKWAY to open the exit.

(* NOTE: If you didn't pull the switch to open the exit, you'll need to go 
back to do that. Use the switch in the blade alcove to open the door up 
above. Exit the blade alcove and find the opening in the ceiling in the 
corner to the left of the pool. Climb the grating ladder, crawl through the 
crawlspace, and follow the passage through the silver door back to the main 
room. Climb the bookcase on the opposite side of the room to reach the 
BLACK-AND-WHITE TILED WALKWAY. After pulling the switch to open the exit, 
climb back down and return through the silver door and down the grating 
ladder to the VAULT.)

Use the vault key to unlock the door. There's a large med-pack inside in 
the left corner. On the right is an opening above water. Below is a roughly 
H-shaped network of underwater passages. Jump in and swim to the left. When 
you reach the middle of the passage, turn right, continue straight to the T 
intersection, then make another right. At the far end, you'll find a 
save/power-up crystal. Turn around and swim back down the straight passage 
to the end, where you can surface. There's a guard here, along with his 
dog. Climb out and kill them. (Or, if you're playing on the PC and have 
harpoons left, you can shoot from the water.)

Climb the ladder, through the trapdoor you opened earlier, and approach the 
room full of goodies to end the level. (NOTE: If the trapdoor is closed, 
you'll need to open it. Swim back to the vault and follow the note above at 
the *.)
