Face E, jump in the water and swim down E through the crack to the end. On the E wall is an underwater lever to raise a block under the house. Swim back and get out of the water. Go to the S and jump to island in the middle of the central pool. Climb the pillar there and onto the block that appeared on top. From there jump to the waterfall. Climb up and follow through the blades and go immediately right around the corner, there is a jump lever to raise another block (for later). Go N and to the end climb to the ladder W.

Go back to the central pool, in the N end a wall went down. Swim in and you could decide to go back and shoot that nasty fish or just go on to the next room and climb out, get a large Medipack and some Flares in the corners. Use the jump lever on the N wall then back into the water, a gate NW opened. Swim in and follow through and when you see N a place you can get out the water, turn around and use the underwater lever S. This raises a block in the room ahead, so turn around again and now swim out.
Climb out, kill the two tigers and climb the block and use the lever. You’ll see a gate opening up.

You need to open a gate in the pool.
Go to the E wall, crawl in at the waterfall and climb on the ledge. At the end is a Blue Gem (a glass panel opens up). Go back out to the hall, to the W wall and in another crawlspace at the waterfall.

Go up the stairs and left onto the wall, jump onto the waterfall and then onto the W side of it, when you slide down backwards, you can grab the jump lever to open a gate. Go S and right around the corners through the water and come to a dark corridor.
Up that ladder E is a Medipack. Through the gate N is a lever, throw it to raise a block at the lava pool. Head back S and left to the lava pool E, go left and to that big block standing in the middle, jump to grab it and pull up left. Jump onto the slanted block NE and slide/jump twice to get to the raised block. Grab up to the burning floor and shimmy left around to the opposite corner, jump into the opening and get the Gate Key.
Hang out of the opening and shimmy left along the crack so you can drop to the floor below. Jump to the same big block again and shimmy right around the corner, pull up between the two flames and turn S, jump to the pillar and then grab the left side of the pillar S to get the Medipack there.

3 - The Tower Part II.
The Four Monks Pillars.
You can shoot the vases, nothing in them… To the far W is another vase which will not break, it’s a hint for something in the wall there (later) Shoot those wooden benches W and the one in the middle will reveal a crowbar lever. Use it (face N) to raise a couple of blocks at that vase N, climb up those blocks and push the block into a room. Grab the First Monks Pillar there and a door opens in the Tower in the big room.
Get out, dive down next to the tower (there’s a ladder in one of the corners in case you want to go back up) and climb out on the ledge. Go E for a Medipack and then dive in again, swim to the W side and swim into the open door.
Climb out and grab that ladder, go up to the first floor of the hall, turn around and climb up again, this time to the top of this ladder where you’ll come to a Large Hall (there’s one more ladder up, that’s for later). Go around to the E side of the tower and look for a jump lever on the tower. Jump to use it and land one floor down. (The lever created a safe bridge over spikes in the E room of the Hall). Go W if you want another Medipack. Then back up the ladder to the Large Hall.
In the shallow pool N are the four receptacles for the Monks pillars, there’s also an opening in the wall.
Hazard Rooms, a Lasersight.
Run in fast as a block will drop down when you enter. Go either right or left (takes you to the same place) and get through the circular blades, N again and more blades. Go left to the next set of blades and come to a room with moving pillars. Hop left around the pillar to a safe ledge. Look SW and run into that corner where you’ll find a lever.
It will open a gate in the opposite corner of the room.
Run back to the ledge you came from and face N, in the far N is the ledge you have to get to, I walked close to the pillars, did a stand jump to the empty spot when the pillar on the left is moving towards the lever and then a run or jump to the safe ledge in the back.
Face E and run jump over the pit when the pillar is in front of you, so it will be gone when you land there, run into the safety of the water (Savegame). Climb out at the opening E and follow through to get Revolver ammo to the right, proceed and end up at the gate you opened.
In the fountain of this Tomb is the Lasersight, a trapdoor opens (did you save some explosive arrows?).
Go up the ladder S and use the lever there to open doors downstairs E. Go down and through the doors, jump through the window S and get the Revolver down to the right. Hop over the fence into that pool S to use the underwater lever NE, swim back through the crack up N. To the W is a Small Medipack and to the E nothing, so climb out of the water there. The door E opened up, go to the next room.
The Second Monk Pillar, a Red Key.
To the N in the next room is the Second Monk Pillar, to the right of it a wooden bench with a Medipack, the other bench holds some Revolver ammo.
Go to the fountains S and look up W, shoot the Gem in the lion’s head, a block goes up under a ladder NE. Climb up and down some steps inside, at the end is a Red Key. Get back out, shoot the vase W at the pool and use the Key in the lock to open a gate in the pool with the 4 fountains.
Dive in, SW is a tunnel, follow through, carefully time the spikes and in the end go right (W) to climb up into the Large Hall again.
Spikes, the Third Monk Pillar.
Enter the opening in the E side of the Hall, go back to the far N of this room. Up the long stairs and shoot a tiger, then go get the Third Monk Pillar all the way N. Going back you’ll have to time the spikes and shoot another tiger. Back down the stairs and go S to find one of the columns there is out of place, push it back to where it belongs (once E) and a block goes up NW. Now you can reach the lever there to open a gate in the S side of the Hall. Go back W to the Hall.
Deadly Pool, the Fourth Monk Pillar.
Enter the open gate S, you’ll have to get to a push column in the far SW corner, the only way is the long way around. Jump S, then E, SE and to those ladders E. Climb to the next ledge and make your way W, more ladders S and then from the next ledge you could better go to the SW corner ledge first. A button there will turn the water safe.
Now go to the column, push it under the block, rubble will fall.
Now you have to get back to the E side of the room where a gate opened up, peace of cake now the water is safe.
Climb up into that passage and go left, left again and save, a danger sound alerts you when you go down the steps, jump around the corner over the pit. Go get the Fourth Monk Pillar at the end of this passage and get back to the pool, go N to the Hall and to the Receptacles N.
Place the Pillars, Top of the Tower.
Put the pillars in the receptacles and a door opens at the top of the Tower, enter the Tower again (W side) and go up to the very top. Step out and go NW where you can finally make use of that Corridor Key you’ve been carrying around.
The Helmet Puzzle, the Samurai Helmet.
All the way at the end you will enter a square, when you walk down to the pool a big Helmet will move to the gate left. Apparently it wants to go inside there. Go up to the SE corner balcony, left to those spiked levers. Just step onto the spike trap in the middle, hop back and then walk through the now harmless spikes to the right hand (S) lever. Use it to open the gate S and go there to pull/push the Helmet inside and against the back wall. It will then move into place. The gate N will close, the second Helmet will move over there.
The gate in the NE corner of the square is now also open; go there and to the levers. Do the same, step on the one in the middle; hop back and walk to the right hand lever to use it to open the N gate back up. Go place the Helmet inside and a trapdoor will open on top of the ladder next to you in that N room. Go up to about 4 bars from the top and back flip with roll to grab another ladder. Go up and use the lever to open an underwater gate. Go down on the ladder a bit and back flip roll again, to get to the floor below.
Dive into the pool, W side and swim through the spikes in the central structure. Use the lever there to open the last gate W of the square, watch how the Helmet will be placed on the pedestal. Get out and go in W to get the Samurai Helmet.
The door in the back opens up, so step out W and go to your Jeep.
The level will end after the title roll.
