Level by Xiao Yan Ping (Smallmoon)

Walkthrough Dutchy.

River 1.

Go to the gate in front and turn right at the crossing, go straight at the next and pick up the small medipack in the end, return and go right at the crossing, look for a hole up in the ceiling and go up right, get some Ammo at the ladder and go all the way up to backflip/roll/grab the ladder behind. Go down the slope backwards and grab the edge, shimmy left to the ledge and follow to the end, jump to the rock pillar left and climb down the green plants, into the crawlspace right of you to get the Shotgun out of that hole, return to the green plants and go down, go right and backflip to slide to a ledge, shoot the Crocs in the water and go swim to the SW corner for a Medipack, climb back out at the ledge and jump/grab the plants to go up again, follow the path to the s wall and then to where you have to run jump/grab to a ledge sticking out of the S wall, a short run jump (with grab) to a NE pillar and then jump/grab to the sloped pillar E, pull up and slide jump to the right so you slide backwards from the next slope, grab, pull up and backflip/roll/grab to the rock behind you, go E and jump over the pillars to the dark E wall and go into the crawlspace.

The Crowbar.

Follow to a room with some Ammo left and 2 Wart Hogs come for you. Shoot them and find another crawlspace in the back, go to a room with the Crowbar on a block and then step on the Tile in the corner to see a trapdoor open up (near the start, hope it is not timed).

Back to the Start.

Go back out to the river and go over the pillars to the W side of the dark cave, into the passage and roll to shoot the Croc behind you, then pick up the Torch in this dark passage and go to the sloped room, left around the corner and get some Ammo, then light the torch on the basket (not too close). Go up the slope to light the rope so the Boulder will fall and you can climb the ladder behind it. In the top room is a small medipack on the mount in the corner, then go down the ladder, but go over to the right side before you get spiked below, grab the Flares and then look into the dark passage, the slope ends in a Spike-trap, so run jump/grab the plants on the ceiling, stick your head in the ceiling and go to the crossing, against the right hand wall and drop/grab to climb down the plants. Get the Flares and duck into the crawlspace, go right and into the corner for the Ammo, quickly turn left and run for the crawlspace there, follow over a Spike-pit to the room with the Uzis and Ammo, return to your friends the Skeletons and try to get past them, run into the other end of that place and go up the ladder, backflip from the top to land into the Secret#1 alcove to get the Medipack. Go down and out of this place fast, up the plant-wall and left to the alcove, grab the monkey swing again and go right into the dark passage, jump over the ladder to that open trapdoor (yes youíre right back over the start of the level) and get the Ammo before climbing down, but be careful, only the side of the shaft you came from is climbable.

Dark Caves.

Down at the start you can open the gate with the Crowbar and climb to the block, jump down into the Cave and look for the Ammo in the SW corner, then go up to the opening in the other side and drop backwards into the next room, grabbing the edge, wait for Lara to get her feet up and backflip to the ledge. Do long runjmps over the Spike-trapped lower parts of the ledge and go up to the Golden Mask on the opposite wall. Get the Token and the Ammo from the Tile and dive into the tunnel under the ledge. Go left at the 1st crossing, get the Ammo in the end and go back, left and to the right at the low crossing, get the Flares and swim up for air, then down and right at the crossing, follow to an Island with Crocs, look the place over for Flares, several packs of Ammo and then go jump into the opening in wall and go over the bridge to place the Token in the stand, the gate opens and you can go out to the Long River of China.

River 2, the Bridge.

Climb the ledge to the left and turn facing N, when you sidejmp left youíll land on a sloped ledge on the other side of the passage you came out of, slide and grab the edge, shimmy left and around the corners till you are at the end (if Lara gets stuck in the inner corner, shortly release the "Ctrl" and she will go further), drop/grab again to catch the edge of the rock with the plants and go left. Pull up over the sharp rock and slide into a hidden passage, crawl to where you can stand again and here you can get back out later. First go to the end of the crawlspace to get Secret#2, the Revolver and a small medipack. Go back to that point in the crawlspace where you can climb back to the top of the rocks and standjmp back around the left corner to that ledge left of the entrance, keep on climbing to some Ammo, then go down to the bridge and stand on the Tile to get the small medipack. Go over to the opening on the other side of the bridge, climb up to an upper passage and here is an upper passage to a Star and a lower passage to a room with a burning pool, drop backwards into that passage with the burning floor and shimmy left along the wall (yep thatís possible) and go over to get the Golden Star.

Finding your way Home.

Return to the other side and go down the stairs to the room with the burning pool, jump the ledges to the other side and go out to the Big room with the huge pillar, run jump/grab over and jump/grab the rope, swing into the passage (with a grab) and be careful, there are Deadly Darts. Shoot the Croc thatís coming for you and go place the Star in the back to flood the Big room. Go back and shoot them Crocs from the entrance or from the pillar and dive into the water to get the Ammo, then swim into the SE corner tunnel and get out again, luring the Croc out, go shoot him and swim into the tunnel again. Up to a room with a giant Moll hill, blow the 2 Skeletons into the tunnel and go to the back SE to pick up some Flares and get the Gate Keys. Go around the hill and find some Ammo NE, from there it is possible to jump on the hill and go into the hidden top ledge, where the Horsemanís Gem is, a flyby will show where to go next. Swim back to the Big room and into the NE tunnel, follow to an outside area with steps, go up and into the corner where the gate is, opposite the gate is a crawlspace with the last Secret#3, a Medipack. Go out of the gate and slide out of the level.
