Level 1: Miracle of Snow - Snowless
You start in a corner of an empty town. Go forward to a plaza and see a closed door to the west. This is the south plaza. There is an empty fountain and an open door to the east. Continue north and go between the buildings to the north plaza with another empty fountain. To the west is another closed door. Go to the north-west corner and shoot a box behind the tree to pick up flares. Then push open the door in the north wall. Enter the room and pick up a small medipack by the east wall. Go to the north-east corner and push open the double doors. Enter the next room and go to the south wall. Pull down the switch to open the door. Do not exit yet but go to the north-east corner and shoot the north wall to reveal a passageway. Go up the stairs and enter a room. Pick up a Key from the table in the middle of the room.
Go south and shoot the left window. Jump out onto a balcony and go to your left. Jump over the plaza to pull up onto the east balcony. Follow the balcony to the end and pull down a jump switch. You get a cut scene of a door opening in the west wall of the north plaza. Safety drop to the ground of the north plaza. You can enter the open door but you can only look around for now. Go south to the south plaza. Go east and enter the east doorway. You hear some music playing. There are two windows in the hallway. Go to the north window and pick up flares. Go to the south window and pull down the jump switch on the south wall. You get a cut scene of the door opening in the west wall of the south plaza.
Exit back to the south plaza and go west to enter the open door. You are in the third plaza. Shoot the box at the south wall for a small medipack. Notice the two key locks and two closed doors. Go north and hop on the short wall. Drop on the other side and use the key in the key lock to raise a block. Climb into the pile of boxes to the north and the camera view changes. Go forward and pull a box out of the wall. You can stand on this box. Climb the box and pull up onto the higher west ledge. The camera view returns to normal. Go west and shoot the second window and hop down into the room. Go down the stairs and open a door. Step onto the patio and shoot the boxes under the tree. There are some branches on the floor. These can be used as torches.
Leave the torches for now. Go to the north-east corner and pull up onto the north wall. Run and jump to the west to grab the roof block and pull up. Stand jump north to the roof. Go to the north end of the roof and drop onto a balcony. Go east and shoot a box. You get secret #1 and a Golden Rose. Pull up onto the roof and go south back to the torches by the tree.
Pick up a torch and look over the east balcony to see a fire at the east wall. Return to the third plaza by the room and boxes route. You can jump over the balcony but you will lose a lot of health. Light the torch on the fire. Exit this plaza and go east back to the hallway with the music. Go north and enter a small room. Light the four candles in the corners and the door in the west wall opens. Enter the room and pick up the Blue Key from the table in the middle of the room. Go to the south-east window and pull down the jump switch on the east wall. You get a cut scene of the dark hallway. Take the torch with you and go back into the hallway.
The east wall has changes. Go behind the first curtain and the door opens for you. Enter the door and pull down the jump switch behind the wall lamp on the west wall. Exit back to the hallway and go south. The second curtain has nothing. Go to the third curtain and enter the open door. Shoot the box on the table. Hop on the table and get secret #2 and a Golden Rose. Exit and bring the torch with you. Go south and see some stairs. Light the candle in the south-east corner and the candle at the bottom of the second set of stairs. Go to the stop of the stairs and light two more candles. A door opens in the north wall at the top of the stairs. Just drop the torch in front of the door.
Enter the door and see two angel statues and three cubes on pedestals. Move the two angel statues onto the tile with the circle design on it. This lowers two blocks behind the statues to reveal two switches. Go around the right statue and see the tiles for items and two switches on the columns. There are three pedestals on the ledge above you. The switches raise and lower the two columns to the west. Climb the short block and use the ladder on the south wall to back flip to the ledge. Move a pedestal onto the tall south block. Get down and use the west switch to lower the tall block. Move the pedestal to the short block. Use the east switch to lower the short block. Move the pedestal to the appropriate tile. You get a cut scene of a closed door. Move the other two pedestals and on the last one, you get a cut scene of a door opening.
Follow the balcony north to find that open door. Enter the room and shoot the boxes under the tree. Pick up the Stone of Water from the floor. Then search the bookcases to get a Yellow Key. Exit the room and return south down the balcony to the statues area. Exit the door and pick up the torch. Go down the stairs to return to the south plaza. Go west and enter the third plaza again. You have a choice of doors at the south wall.
Go to the south-east key lock and use the yellow key to open the door. Pick up your torch and enter the room. There is more music. Light the candle near the entrance door. Light three more candles aound the room. You get a cut scene of a door opening. Go west and enter the doorway. Follow the stairs up to the room from the cut scene. Enter the room and shoot the blue box on the pedestal. You get secret #3 and a Golden Rose. Go east and shoot the blue box on the pedestal. Pick up a second Stone of Water. Exit the room and go down the stairs. Return outside to the third plaza.
Go to the south-west key lock and use the blue key to open the door. Go down and then up some stairs. You see a disk reader and a closed door to the west. Go west and then turn to your right. You enter a room with nine switches and pipes below you under the glass floor. The idea is to move the switches to connect all the pipes. However, each switch moves several pipe sections and also open doors. There is more than one combination of switches to get the pipes correct. Go to the south-east corner switch by the window. That is switch #1. Number the switches as #1 to #9 clockwise from that switch. Pull down switch #1 and the camera view changes. A door opens to your right and you see one piece of pipe move. Pull down switches #1, #5, #7, and #8. Do not touch switches #2, #3, #4, #6, and #9. This combination opens all the doors and connects the pipes in the correct order. Go down the open west corridor to a small room. Pick up the Disk of Water from the pedestal. You get a cut scene of the disk reader. After you pick up the item, the switches no longer work. Use the disk in the disk reader and get a cut scene of the south plaza fountain filling with water.
Exit here and go east into the south plaza. Dive into the fountain and pull the underwater lever. The gate opens in the north wall. Swim inside the tunnel to a closed gate. Follow the side tunnel and pull the underwater lever. The second gate opens. Follow to another gate and a side tunnel. You can get air above you. Pull the underwater lever to open the gate. Swim inside and follow the tunnel to a closed gate. Pull the underwater lever to open the gate. Swim through the gate and you are in the fountain of the south plaza. The fountain is now filled with water. Pull the underwater lever on the fountain and the gate opens in the west wall. Swim down the underwater tunnel to the end. Pull up on a ledge next to two wheels.
Drop on the other side and pull down a switch. You get a cut scene of a block dropping. Swim back to the fountain and get out. Now go west into the fourth plaza that you just ignored earlier. Place the two stones of water in the two receptacles on the north and south columns. You get a cut scene of the water tunnel and the wheels turning. The door opens in the west wall of the fourth plaza. Go west and run through the doorway and the level changes.
It is possible to bring a lighted torch with you between the levels. But if you leave and return to the level, the torch is gone.
Level 2: In the Monastery
Go forward and enter a hallway. There are some closed doors and pull chains. You can go to the windows and see items that you need.
Because of the torch problem, I decided to return to the previous level for the last secret before doing anything else in this level. In the hallway, go to the north-west door and the door will open for you. Run up the stairs to the second floor of the monastery. Go south and keep to the left wall. A door will open as you go in front of it. Enter the door and run down the corridor and the level changes.
Level 1: Miracle of Snow - Snowless
A door opens in front of you. You are on the balcony between the south and fourth plazas. Go north and see a chain in the corner. Go east and pull down a jump switch on the second column. This opens a trap door for the chain. I assume that is just in case you want return to the first level and look for any items that you missed. Go east and at the statue turn to the right and go south. Go to the end of the balcony and pick up secret #4 and a Golden Rose. Go north to the statue and the door opens for you. Enter the door and the level changes.
Level 2: In the Monastery
The door opens and you emerge onto the second floor of the monastery. Go to the left to find the stairs to return to the first floor. Go to the south and turn the corridor to the left. Keep to the right wall and the two doors will open as you go in front of them. Enter the second room and go behind the first curtain in the west wall. Lighting a flare will help to see the movable block. Push the block as far as possible. Go south and up the stairs into a small room. Push the light blue statue south into the corner. The fire will stop on the pedestal. Pick up a torch (tree branch) from the pedestal. Exit the room and go back into the hallway. Return to the north-west door and return up the stairs to the second floor. Stand on the top step and light the torch on the wall torch.
Return down the stairs and return to the two rooms in the south corridor. Light two oil lamps in each room. When the four are lit, you get a cut scene of bars dropping in front of a pedestal. Go back to the starting corridor with the pull chains. Drop the torch where you can find it again. Go north and pull the north pull chain. Enter the room with a statue and barrels. Go south to jump over a trench. Enter the left alcove and get secret #5 and a Golden Rose from the pedestal. The pull chain in the room is on a fire so leave it for now.
Exit the room and go to the south pull chain. Pull the chain and a door opens. Enter and if you walk around the room, you get a cut scene of a trap door rising in the north room trench. When you leave the room, the trap door falls. Move the blue statue north-west to place it in front of the middle barrel. The trap door rises and stays up when you leave the room. Go to the north trench room and push the blue statue into the room with the fire. Push the statue into the corner to the right of the fire. Jump into the trench and go through a crawl space. At the end, pull down a wall switch. You get a cut scene of the trap door rising in the south trench room. Go to the south trench and room and push the statue over the trap door and into the corner to the left of the fire.
When both statues are in position, the fires stop in the trench rooms. Go to the north trench room and pull the chain. You get a cut scene of the item in the south trench room. Go there and pull the chain and get a cut scene of the bars dropping. Go into the alcove and pick up the Snow Crystal Piece 2 from the pedestal. Exit the room and back into the starting corridor.
Pick up the torch again from where you dropped it. Go north and turn to the right to go east. The first doors stay closed. Continue east and the second sets of doors will open for you. Enter the room and light the three pale blue post lamps in the room. You get a flyby of the room above you. Exit and go west and the first set of doors are open. Enter and light the four pale blue post lamps. A block drops in the north-east corner. Push the pedestal with the white cube onto the white square in that corner. You get a cut scene of a block dropping. Take the torch and exit the room. Go north and up the stairs to the second floor.
Go east and enter the open door. There are several fancy tiles and pedestals in the channels below the glass floor. The platform with the four statues has four wall switches on it. There are a few places where you can drop into the channels below with the pedestals. Pull down the right wall switch on the west wall. You get a cut scene of a block with a brown cube rising in the south-west corner by the entrance door. Move that brown cube to the fancy brown tile near to it.
Pull down the south wall switch and get a cut scene of the white cube rising from the first floor. You can find it in the north wall trench. Pull down the left switch on the west wall.

Enter the room and go south. Hop onto the table and pick up a large medipack. Go to either south corner and push open the double doors. You enter a church with church organ music. Go south and pick up the cross from the pedestal. Exit the church and the next room to return to the corridor. Go south and ignore the door back to the previous level. Go to the south-east and a door opens as you approach it. Enter the room and place the cross in the receptacle on the east wall. Then the level changes.
Level 3: Miracle of Snow - Finale
You start in a church area. If you turn around and go west, you return to the previous level. Go to the east wall and combine the two pieces to make the snow crystal. Place the snow crystal on the post. You get a long flyby of the first level. But now it is snowing and there are several snowmen around. Then the level ends.
