Level 1 - Enigma

After the flyby, go to the blue light and slide down into Enigma. Go right, climb the ladder and make your way round to the waterfall. Go up the waterfall, through the doorway, run across the crumble floor and hoist up into the passage. Use the switch and hoist up into the passage in the ceiling. Get the first Crystal Key across the bridge, then drop back down into the lower passage, go back down the waterfall, go left to the end of the rocks, hoist up and shimmy round.

Go up the stairs, shoot the 4 crystals on the pedestals, go down the open passage below the chest, use the switch, go through the door that just opened, swim to the underwater timed lever, them swim through the open door and hoist up into another room. If you want all the secrets, first open the door back to the main room before going up the stairs.

Jump onto the pillar, then down into the water, use the underwater lever, hoist up onto the safe platform, jump across to the open doorway, climb the pillar and jump up to the passage. In the next room shoot the blue pillar which lowers a block, then use the switch. The flyby shows you the flooded area is now drained, but doesn't show you that the room is now flooded where the secret was lying on the flames.

Go back to the main room and straight ahead through another opened door and hoist up and use the switch. This turns off the flame you saw in the flyby. You can first go and get the secret (as long as you opened the door earlier) and then hoist up where the flame has been turned off and get the 2nd Crystal Key.

Go back to the rocky outdoor area and use the 2 Crystal Keys.

Shoot the shatter dog and go down the opened passage outside, swim to the end and hoist out. Shoot the yellow pillar to open the door out, then pull out the pushblock and use the switch which raises a block in the room next to you. Go back to the dogs room, swim down the tunnel at the bottom of the pool and get the Blood Stone.

Use the Blood Stone up near the waterfall on the next level, then climb up the ladder. At the top, go right and pick up the Ninja Owl in the passage at the back of the cave. Hoist up onto the bridge, make your way to the middle and go left, down the slope and pick up the first of another 3 Blood Stones which are used in the room next to you.

Go left and follow the cave to the end, jump to the tree, then to the other side. From there you can drop down and jump to the lower branch of the tree, then across to the waterfall for the Ruby Secret. Drop down into the pool for the 2nd Blood Stone. Hoist up onto the tree island, then make your way back up the passage, and get the 3rd Blood Stone from the alcove on the left at the top.

Use the 3 Blood Stones, to back over the bridges, and go into the passage and use the Ninja Owl. Jump to the pedestal and get the shotgun, which opens 2 doors that lead up to the next floor. Find the jump switch and go through the door. Make your way past the two blades, and use the switch to open the trapdoor beside you.

Drop down into the room below, pick up the Vulcan Stone, stay where you are and arm yourself with the shotgun and use it to shoot the 3 skeletons into the water as they jump across to you. Shoot the Dog statue, use the lever, go through the open door and use the switch to turn off flames on the 2nd Vulcan Stone. When you pick up this stone, a block lowers in the pool which opens a passage you can now swim through to get back to the main pool area.

Go back up the stairs and use the two Vulcan Stones, get the Gold Secret and the Skull. When you pick up the skull you hear a trapdoor open. Swim back through the underwater passage to the room you just left, drop down the trapdoor, push the block, pick up the Crystal on the bridge, and in the next room drop down and make your way through the passage and use the Crystal. This opens the door near the bridges area, and you can now go there and use the Skull and go to the next level.

Level 2 - Ravine

Go to the river, turn left, jump to the stone ledge and use the ladders to shimmy to the next stone ledge. Green water plants are safe to stand on, red water plants are not. Go to the end of the river, make your way past the blades, use the burner switch, and in the next room use the two jump switches while avoiding the rolling balls. In the next area, go through the crawl space, up the passage, across the waterfall and use the switch. Drop down, push the green statue, swim down the open passage in the pool and get the Vulcan Stone. Jump in the river and use the current to take you back down river.

Use the green water plants to get to the other side and use your Vulcan Stone. Go through the cave, hoist up, jump first to the tree, then to the rock platform, and walk forwards until the flyby kicks in. You are in the left eye of a huge face and you need to get to the right eye. Jump to the tree straight ahead, hoist up and make your way around the room to get another Vulcan Stone.

Dive into the pool, hoist out, and go into the cave behind the waterfall. On the block, jump to the ladder and climb up to the next room. In the fire room, run around and avoid the wraiths until the timed door to the pool opens. The door behind the flame is also timed, but I have no idea what triggers the timer, so run around the area until you hear that door open. When you're through, get the Ruby Secret from the pool, and go back to the fire room. Hoist up through the other doorway, and find yourself looking down at river again. Make your way back to the huge face gorge and use your Vulcan Stone to access the Spider Cave.

Use the timed switch to lower the block in the pillar and run inside. When the block raises, hoist up and jump to the ledge where the crack is and shimmy round to get a Crystal Key. There is a secret in this area, so find your way down into the pit, hoist up into the passage, go down the stairs and find the Golden Secret in the hole. Find your way back to the top room and shimmy back to the spider cave.

Go down the waterfall and use the Crystal Key to unlock the 3 remaining doors in the spider cave. Each of these 3 doors leads to a golden switch which opens the trapdoor above the pillar in the middle of the spider cave. Grabbing the ladder can be a bit difficult at times, so if you have trouble, side step once or twice until you can jump up and grab the ladder.

The next area is timed and there will be 3 flooding events. The key to solving the area is knowing the route as the timings are generous. First, use the pillars to reach the jump switch straight ahead. From there, roll, run and jump to the switch on the right wall as you entered. Roll, run and jump with right curve to the block, then run and jump to the block near the exit door and escape before the room floods.

Go through the passage and once out on the bridges high above the river, make your way over the tree branches and run and jump to the top of the waterfall. If you want the Silver Secret, do not shoot the red dogs. Go past the blades and in the next room do not shoot the dogs. Instead go through the open door and use the switch. The dogs are now green. In that same area, push the block forwards and push the golden switch.

Back to the blades room, go down the ladders and get the Crystal Key. Now go shoot the dogs and get the Silver Secret. Make your way over the bridges to the far side, use the Crystal Key to get the Blood Stone, them jump down into the river and make your way back to the huge face waterfall area. Use the blood stone to open the big golden doors and head to the next level for a swim.

Level 3 - Ship Graveyard

You are in the ocean. In front of you on the ocean floor is a rocky pillar. Directly above it is a breathe hole. Go left into the caves and find Machine Oil. Explore the two yellow diving bells and remember where you use the machine oil and a security card. Use the Machine Oil to turn off the flames where you use a 2nd Machine Oil. Explore the ocean floor all around the wreck and find the Silver Secret in a small cave.

From the diving bell where you used the Machine Oil, swim past the orange mini sub and then up where the textured yellow pillar is and find a cave. At the end hoist out into a jade room. Jump into the passage and deal with the 3 rolling balls. Climb the ladder above the water hole to get the 2nd Machine Oil. Use the switch and take a torch down with you and leave it somewhere safe. Don't light it yet as you will be back later. Above the safe rocks in the fire circle is a jump switch. This opens the door to a secret area, but leave it for now and go and use the 2nd Machine Oil.

Swim through the cave to another underwater Jade area. On the right of the stairs go through the crawlspace and use the lever up the passage. Those doors will close if you approach them, so first lock them open by using the underwater switch in the flooded cave under the bridge. Slide down and climb the ladder. Pull out the two cages and use the levers to open two timed doors and use the other levers to turn off the flames protecting the Blood Stone.

Use the Blood Stone and make your way to the other side of the chasm and pick up the Trident (hoisting up, back flipping and twisting will get you there). Jump down into the water cave and swim to the end. The pick ups will lower the cages back in the room where you left the torch. Hoist out of the waterhole and use the cracks to shimmy round the room, then climb the ladder. Before we can go back to the torch room, we must first finish another level, so don't forget where it was. Go through the last opened door and go to the next level.

Level 4 - Secrets of the Sea

Go right, shoot the metal grille and use the switch. Go up the passage and use the next switch. Head back down the passage and use the 1st switch again. Go straight across at the junction and at the end of the passage use the switch. Note the trapdoor as this is the way to the next level. Back at the junction go left. At the end of the passage use the switch and head down the new passage to the next area.

On the block to the left use the jump switch to lower a cage over a secret. In the pool with the plants use the underwater switch to open the trapdoor in the other pool. In the flooded cave their is a breathe hole above the temple pillars. Get some air and search around the pillars for the Golden Secret.

Hoist out at the end of the cave, negotiate the timed flames, the blades, and the rolling ball and then use the jump switch at the top of the room. Down the ladder and pick up the Blood Stone. The switch lights 1 of 4 flames which access the Ruby Secret. Back down past the blades and use the Blood Stone to access the passage on the island. Use the switch and then head to the top of the room and solve the 4 areas.

Left is a long swim for a Blood Stone. In that room is a jump switch which light the 2nd flame for access to the Ruby Secret. Straight ahead is a series of jumps to a dead soldier. Pull his body out of the way and pick up the Security Card. Below him is a jump switch which lights the 3rd flame for access to the Ruby Secret. Right is to a 2nd Blood Stone. On the way out after picking the stone up, pick up a torch and go back and use it to light the 4th flame which gives you access to the Ruby Secret. When you have it, head back through the flooded cave and use the 2 Blood Stones.

In the next room, use the switch up top to raise a block. Pull the push block onto it and then use the switch to lower it. Push the block onto the floor tile to deactivate the spikes. Back flip and twist from the ladder to use the jump switch which opens the door to the caged area. Solve that area and get the 2nd Trident.

On the way out, pick up the Silver Secret above the pool. Use the underwater switch to lower a rope and make your way over the pool. Use the switch there to raise a block back in the main room and use that switch to open the trapdoor that leads to the next level.

Level 3 - Ship Graveyard - Part 2

Do not go up the stairs or you will have to go through the previous level again to get back here. Go to the jade room where you left the torch and use it to light the corner pots. If you can't find the torch, get another one from above the water hole. Take the torch to the waterfall room and light the two wall torches and get the Ruby Secret. Now use the torch to light the 2 corner pots and go get the Golden Secret.

Now go to the yellow diving bell and use the Security Card. Head down the cave to get inside one of the wrecks and use the 2 tridents. Jump into the water and head to the next level.

Level 5 - HMS Botany Bay

Jump the crates, shimmy to the passage, shoot the grille covering the crawlspace, and go straight at the junction. After the flyby, use the switch that opens the door at the passage that went left at the junction. Shoot the ghost beast and go and get the Crowbar. Remember where the two doors are. Use the crowbar on the door through the crawlspace and find yourself in the air ducts.

Take first right, use the switch to turn off the flames near the start. Take the next passage on the right, open the underwater door but don't go through until you turn the fans off. Back to the ducts and take the next passage which is on the left. At the end hoist up and use the wheel switch to turn off the electricity. Back to the ducts and take the next passage on the right. Use the lever which opens the door beside you through the bars back in the crowbar area. Just around the corner, hoist up to get the Revolver from the pedestal. Back to the ducts and take the final passage on the left. Pull the pushblock out and use the switch which opens a yellow door.

Go back through the ducts to the crowbar area, go through the opened door, pushed the block forwards and then left to get the revolver ammo. Push the other block forward and use the lever which lowers the spikes and turns off the flame back in the electricity room, where you can now use the jump switch to open the door to the next area.

This area can be done in any order. Go left and left again and find the yellow door you opened earlier. Get the Cargo Bay Access Card from the flooded passage and use the switch to open the trapdoor in the next room you can see through the glass. Push the block left or right to open the trapdoor below it. Swim down the passage and use the underwater switch to turn off the fans in the fan room. Open the underwater door and get some air. Get the Machine Oil from the passage with no door. There is a lever which opens a short cut back to the ducts. Swim back to the room you left before turning off the fans and go straight across to the next area.

After some acrobatics and avoiding the flame, grab the ladder and climb to the top. Use the lever on the platform to open the door, and then use the lever in there to turn on the sprinkler at the top of the room to extinguish the flames. Jump from that switch to the walkway, or go around the room again, and go and get the Fuse.

Next take the middle passage to the computer control room. Find the Captains Key and head back to the main area. Go straight ahead and use the wheel switch which opens the yellow door in the middle narrow passage. Beside you is the trapdoor you opened earlier so climb up and get the Lasersight. Go through the open yellow door and use the Captain's Key, then use the wheel switch which opens the yellow door back in the area where you found the crowbar.

Before heading there, go the last area to solve here, find and use the jump switch, and then shimmy on the underside of the walkway and make your way to the top of the room and get the Fuel Mixture. Now go that opened yellow door and use the Cargo Bay Access Card.

Before going to the Cargo Bay, go back the Computer Control room as that door in there opened during the flyby as well. Use the Machine Oil and the Fuel Mixture to open the door to the Fuse Room

*important note* Use the Fuse first before hoisting up into the crawlspace for the Silver Secret or you won't be able to use the Fuse and you will be forever lost on the wreck of the Botany Bay. After using the Fuse, hoist up and get the Silver Secret. Using the switch up there after getting the secret opens the door to the Ruby Secret.

Go to the Cargo Bay and shoot the lock with the revolver and lasersight, find the switch to turn off the flames, and get the Golden Secret. Now access the final area, hoist up, pull the block, pick up the Harpoon Gun and go to the next level.
