[Note] You have to use the tomb.exe file supplied by the author or the level will crash when it starts. You may notice the great detail in the floor reflections. This author did a lot of extra work. [End note]
You start inside a house in front of a closed gate and facing stairs to the west. To the north are closed blue doors. To the south are closed red doors. Go behind the south-east column and pull down a jump switch to open the blue doors. Go north and enter the doors. Follow the corridor to a two small red doors in the north wall. Push them open and enter the room as the camera view changes. Hop back out of the room as you kill three spiders.
Enter the room and go around the table to see a fireplace in the north wall. There is a wall switch behind the fire. Go to the north-west and open the door in the west wall. Enter and go north into a sun-lit room. Follow the north corridor and open another door to your left. Enter the small library room and kill two dogs. Pick up Uzi ammo near the scroll on the east floor. Exit and go down the south corridor. Push open the doors to your left and enter the garden. Admire a huge purple flower, and then go behind the tree at the south wall to pick up the shotgun. Exit and go south up the stairs. At the top go east and follow the corridor. Kill a gladiator and pick up a small medipack. Go to the end of the corridor and pick up flares from the pedestal. Return to the middle of the corridor and push open the double doors in a north alcove. You emerge onto the balcony above the room.
There is a closed door in the north-east corner. There is a closed gate in the north-west corner. Go to the middle of the east balcony and push in a movable block into the east wall. Enter the alcove and pull down the wall switch. This stops the fire in the fireplace in the room below. Go down the stairs and enter the fireplace. Pull down the wall switch at the back of the fireplace. You get a cut scene of the gate opening on the balcony. Go back up the stairs and follow the west balcony. Kill a dog and enter the open gate. You can shoot an empty vase.
Follow the corridor and turn to the south. Kill a gladiator who drops nothing. Safety drop off the ledge and into a garden area. Out run the two skeletons and go to the south-west and jump into the water pool. Follow the underwater tunnel in the south-west corner to another garden area. Pull up onto the middle west ledge and look into the water trench. You see a crawl space in the middle of the west ledge. Swim inside that area and pick up the crowbar. Get up and go to the north-west ledge. Look up to the column to the south. Pull down the jump switch and get a cut scene of a door opening. Swim back to the first garden area. Run to the north-east corner and pull up onto a column and get out of reach of the skeletons.
Hop up onto the east balcony and go to the south end. Use the crowbar to open the door in the east wall. Go to the back of the room and pull all three switches. The order seems to be left switch, right switch, and finally middle switch and the blocks drop in the tunnel. Enter the tunnel underneath the switches and pick up the Blue Gem. A fire wraith starts to fly near you. Immediately run out of the room and over the west ledge into the garden area. Dive back into the water to extinguish the fire wraith. Evade the skeletons again and climb back up to the ledge. Follow the corridor back to the balcony. Get down to the ground floor and exit to the south. Follow the corridor back through the blue doors and into the starting room.
Go west up the stairs and loop to the right onto the balcony. Go to the east wall and shoot an empty vase. Pull down the jump switch above it to open the red doors below. You can see receptacles for two gems. You can shoot the other empty vases and go down the stairs to the first floor.
Go south and enter the open red doors. Go to the end and push open the doors in the west wall. Step inside and get a flyby of the room showing many ledges and ending at a red circle on the floor. Go forward to the middle of the room and kill a gladiator and a dog that attack you. Go to the south wall between the second and third bookshelves. Pull down a jump switch and hear a gate open. Go to the south wall between the first and second bookshelves. Enter the open gate and shoot the vase in the corner. Pull out the gold piece from the opposite corner and pull it into the room. Push the gold piece onto the floor tile to the north with a picture of an Ankh. Go to the north wall between the first and second bookshelves. Pull down the wall switch and hear a noise. A column has risen and moved the gold piece to the second floor.
Go up the north stairs and pick up red shotgun shells from the pedestal at the west wall. Go to the balcony and move the gold piece from the north Ankh tile to the south Ankh tile. Run down the stairs and use the north wall switch again. This raises the column with the gold piece. Go back up the stairs and climb the ladder at the west wall. At the top, back flip to the third floor. Go to the balcony and move the gold piece from the south Ankh tile to the north Ankh tile. Go around to the east side of the balcony and use the floor lever. This raises the gold piece to the fourth floor. Climb the ladder on the east wall and back flip to the fourth floor. A skeleton will annoy you so shoot it off the ledge. Run to the south wall and pick up a large medipack. Go to west ledge and jump up and grab the floor above by your fingernails. Pull up to the fifth floor.
Go west and kill three bats. Drop down onto the fourth floor. Ignore the Ankh tile next to the gold piece. Move the gold piece onto the Ankh tile to the west in the middle of the room. Go to the west balcony and pull up to the fifth floor again by using your fingernails on the ledge to the east. Go to the north wall and pull down the wall switch to raise the gold piece to the fifth floor. Turn and go to the middle of the walkway to move the gold piece onto the red circle. The red doors in the west wall on the fourth floor open.
Enter the west doors and you emerge into a large room with a glass floor over an aquarium. You can see fish in the room below. Go to the north-west corner and enter a short tunnel. Shoot the vase at the end. You get secret #1 and pick up a Golden Rose. Exit the tunnel and notice a trap door by the north-west column. Go to the south-west column and pull down a jump switch. The red doors in the west wall open. Enter and follow the ramp up to the second floor. There are vases in the corners of the ramp room. Shoot the north-west vase for red shotgun shells. Go east to enter the room with a glass floor. There is a closed gate in the south wall. Push open the double doors in the north wall. Pick up flares from the pedestal and dive into the water.
Swim north through some openings and pull up into a large room. Kill the dog and a gladiator. Use a flare and go to the north-west corner. Get into the upper crawl space for the Golden Key. Go to the ledge at the south wall. Turn around and pull up to the platform to the north. Go to the north wall and use the Golden Key in the lock on the north wall. You get a cut scene of a gate opening above the glass floor. Safety drop to the floor and swim back to the glass floor room. Enter the room in the south wall and pull the wall switch. You get a cut scene of a block rising on the fourth floor. Pick up the brown torch from the brown floor behind you. Use a flare to actually see the torch. Take the torch and go down the ramps to the fourth floor. Stand jump onto the block and stand jump to the fifth floor. Go to the south wall and light the torch. Carefully jump down and return up the ramps to the glass floor room. Go east and light four wall torches in the side alcoves. You also have to shoot a spider in the last alcove. Each time you light a wall torch a gate will open in the room below you.
Bring the torch with you and go back down the ramps. Drop the torch on the floor where you can find it again. Enter the north-west doorway and go to the back of the room. Go to the north-east corner and pick up Uzi's and a Scroll from the pedestal. The Scroll states: "Put the 3 statues on their right place and you will come nearer to the finish. Blue: 5/1 Green: 2/6 Red: 8/4". Go to the north-east column and see the notation "1/1" on the floor. This is a co-ordinate system. By trail and error, the first number is in the south direction. The second number is in the west direction. Move the blue piece from the north wall alcove to the first row onto the fifth tile to the south in front of the open red doors. When correct, you get a cut scene of closed red doors. Now you know the system, move the green piece to 2 south and 6 west. Move the red piece to 8 south and 4 west. When all three pieces have been moved, you get a cut scene of the red doors opening.
Pick up the torch and go up the ramps and through the red doors. Go behind the north-west column and light a wall torch. A block rises in front of the column. Drop the torch and hop onto the block. Pull up to the platform and pick up the Red Gem from the pedestal. Jump over to the south-west corner to shoot the brown vase for a small medipack. Hop down to the floor and pick up the torch again. Bring the torch with you. Go down the ramp and across the floor above the fish. Go back to the room with the many ledges. Go east and jump to a lower east ledge. Go around the balcony to jump down to the lower ledge near the wall ladder. Go down either stairs to the room below. Exit into the corridor and go north through the red doors. Continue north through the blue doors. Return to the room with the fireplace and light the two wall torches on both sides of the fireplace. Drop the torch and go through the west door and up the stairs to the balcony. The north-east door is now open. Enter the tunnel there for secret #2 and a Golden Rose. Get down from the balcony and pick up the torch and go back to the starting room.
Drop the torch where you can find it again if needed. Go up the west stairs and around to the east side of the balcony. Use the two gems in the receptacles and hear a gate open. Go down the stairs and the gate in the east wall is open. Enter the door and get a flyby of a garden area and ending in a wall switch. Go east and see a closed gate with a jeep behind it. Go north and enter the next garden section. Kill a dog and notice a closed gate in the north-east wall. Follow the flyby path to the wall switch. Use the wall switch and dive into the pool beside you. Enter the underwater tunnel to the south and use the underwater lever. Exit back out of the pool to kill a dog. Go the north-west and enter the open gate.
Jump over the floor burner into the west room. Carefully push the gold piece out of the room. Push it on the burner as the burner stops. Then back flip out of the way before the burner starts again. Jump over the gold piece when the burner stops. Then carefully pull the gold piece off the burner. Use the same procedure to move the gold piece to the east over another burner into the east room. Then push the gold piece north over the burners and into the next two rooms. Place the gold piece on the red circle and hear a noise like a block dropping. Go west and notice a closed gate and a lock. Go into the far west room. Turn around and pull down a jump switch on the east wall. The block drops in the south wall. Enter that room and go east to the room with the key. Save before you pick up the key. When you pick up the Golden Key, a fire wraith appears. Run back through the burners and back to the water to extinguish it.
Go back through the burners to the gate with the lock. Use the Golden key to open the gate. Enter the room and use the floor lever. You get a cut scene of the trap door opening into the aquarium. Go back through the burners and into the house. Go south through the red doors and to the room with many ledges. Climb the ledges again and go back to the room over the aquarium. Go to the north-west column and enter the trap door. Swim down an underwater tunnel in the south wall. Pull up into a room. Go up the platforms in the south-east corner. Pick up the Holy Treasure from the pedestal. A door opens in the south wall. Enter the tunnel and use the floor lever. You get a cut scene of the gate outside the house opening.
Swim back to the aquarium and you hear an angry Seth Skeleton above you. Pull up into the room and run to the east and out the red doors.
