Level by Christoph Gochermann (April, 2005)
Walkthrough by Harry Laudie
Slide down a hill and go east to drop in front of a closed gate. Go to the south-west corner under the ledge and the gate opens. Go east and fall into the water. Swim to the south-east corner and pick up the Hand of Sirius. The camera view changes and you see crocodiles. Swim to the surface and pull up in the middle of the east side ledge. Kill the two crocodiles from there. Turn and kill the two dogs approaching you from the east corridor as well. Go to the south wall and go west over the ice to get secret #1. Pick up flares, small medipack and a large medipack. Go back and continue down the east corridor. Enter a large area and get a cut scene of dogs running towards you. Climb on the nearest high block and kill the three dogs.
At the back are steps guarded by flames. Go east into a pit and pick up three small medipacks. Push the floor switches in the south-east and north-east corners and two flames on the stairs go out. Go to the south-west corner to kill a dog and pick up two large medipacks and a small medipack. Use the floor switch and the third fire goes out but the other two are re-lit. Go and push the other two floor switches back and now all the fires are out. Now go up the steps to the column. You could try to get here without using the switches but the columns are booby-trapped with spike balls. Drop into the hole and use the Hand of Sirius. You get a cut scene of the pit being filled with water. I had trouble breaking the cut scene, so back flip away from the receptacle back onto a block to regain control. If you go to the pit for a swim, a crocodile appears.
Jump over the receptacle to pick up explosive crossbow ammo. You notice a door to the far left. Go to the middle of theis room and enter another room on the right. Approach the double doors, kill a dog and pick up two small medipacks, poison crossbow ammo and three explosive crossbow ammo. The double doors will also open. Now go back to the previous room. At the end of the room pick up two large medipacks and a small medipack. Approach the door and enter. A sea-type creature shoots blue fireballs at you. Run to the back and pick up the crossbow, normal and poison crossbow ammo, and the laser sight from the floor. Avoid the sea-type creature and run out the room and back to the double doors you opened. Go to the right and push the floor switch and get a cut scene of a door opening. Turn around and go east and then south until a gate opens for you. Go inside and find the open door. Pick up the Hand of Orion and two flares. Go back to the floor switch and go south and east. You pass a gate that opens for you. Go more east to get a cut scene of that room and then go to the end to use the floor switch.
Go back and enter the open gate. The items I could not get, so run south to a door that opens. Another sea-type creature shoots blue fire at you. Inside the next room, kill two dogs and go through the far doorway. You face a huge deep pit with doors at the bottom. In the south-east corner you see a receptacle. Go there and use the Hand of Orion and get a cut scene of the doors opening and some dogs. Go west and go down a few blocks. Go north and get down to a ledge. From there go south to the bottom and kill three dogs. Enter the corridor and when it splits, go west. Jump to the blocks on the right and use a floor switch and the gate at the west end opens. Go there, then right and left to face a large slope. Go forward and see four booby-trapped large medipacks. Go into the doorway to the right as the spike balls fall. When they stop you can go back to pick up two large medipacks. Go back to the doorway and face a large water-filled pit.
Swim into the east opening for a large medipack and three small medipacks scattered on the floor. Swim into the west opening and then back out to pull up to a ledge. Kill the crocodile that followed you out. Go back in for two Eye Pieces, small medipack and four large medipacks. Climb the blocks to the north and enter the north room. Kill a blue ninja and pick up a shotgun and shotgun shells. Pick up four shotgun shells by the floor switch. Notice a closed door in the east wall. Use the switch and get a cut scene of an underwater gate opening. Dive into the water behind you and into that tunnel.
Swim to the end and go right into the first right tunnel. Swim over the blade and pick up a large medipack. Swim back to the pit with the switch. Swim into the tunnel and go into the second right tunnel. Swim over two blades and pick up a shotgun. Swim back to the pit. Swim into the tunnel and go into the third right tunnel. Swim to the back and pick up a shotgun shells. Swim back to the pit. Swim into the tunnel and go into the third left tunnel. Swim to the end and pick up flares. Swim back to the pit. Swim into the tunnel and go into the end of it and pick up shotgun shells. You get a cut scene of the door opening. Roll and swim until the cut scene clears. Swim back to the pit. Get into the room behind the door and use a floor switch. The door opens behind you. You face five swinging spike bags and spikes on both sides of the floor alcoves. On the other side use the floor switch to open the door. Jump the blade and pick up the large medipack and the door closes. I suspect that this is the end. There seems to be no end trigger or level change. However, according to the menu, there are more levels. I guess that we will have to wait for them.
