More to come in the next few days.... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ii. Introduction ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Ok, here is the deal. For this FAQ, I ask that NOBODY E-MAIL ME QUESTIONS! The reason for this is because chances are I won't be able to answer them unless they have to do with the first part of the game or so. And the reason for that is because I only _BRIEFLY_ played this game at my friend's house and that was it. So you must be wondering, how did I make this FAQ then? Well, most of this info. is ALL from my friend who isn't a FAQ writer (and actually has no desire to become one.) And yes I could accept questions and just direct them to my friend, but that will take up a lot of my time because I have about 30 other e- mails I need to deal with a day. So if this FAQ does not help you, then I guess you are going to have to find help somewhere else, because I repeat....PLEASE NO QUESTIONS! ~~~~~~~~~~~ iii. Notes ~~~~~~~~~~~ 12/12/99 So far I have added only the "Prison" part of the Walkthrough. I shall have the 2nd part of the Walkthrough which is the "Ivory Tower" in a few days (maybe later due to school). ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 1.) Controls ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ These are the basic controls: Up (#8) on the Number Pad - Makes the Prince run forward. Down (#2) on the Number Pad - Makes the Prince run backward. Left (#4) on the Number Pad - Makes the Prince run to the Left. Right (#6) on the Number Pad - Makes the Prince run to the Right. #5 on the Number Pad - Turns the Prince around. C button - Makes the Prince Crouch down. Advanced Controls: Up (8) on the Number Pad + ALT - Makes the prince jump. ALT + Up (8) on the Number Pad - Lets you climb up ledges. SHIFT + Up (8) on the Number Pad - Climb up various things. SHIFT + Up (8) on the Number Pad (When you can't climb) - Sneak. C + Up (8) on the Nubmer Pad - Make the Prince Crawl. Some of these controls might not be correct. Please correct me if they aren't. Thanks. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 2.) Walkthrough ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The Prison ----------- Here is where the game begins. Your character is locked up in a prison cell with no weapons, nothing! Towards the back of the cell you will notice a big block. This is the way out. Push the block out of your way with the CTRL key and the UP key on the Number Pad (#8). Once the block is out of your way go through the hall and through the corridor. The place you are looking for is the 1st door on your left, so turn in there when you come to it. Now you need to find out how to escape this prison. Talk to the prisoner on the left side of the room and ask him how, he doesn't know how, drats! Talk to the one on the right and he will give you some info. on how to get out. There is a ledge leading to a platform above this prisoners head (The prisoner on the right side of the room). Jump up onto this ledge and pull yourself up. To do this, hold down the ALT key and press Up on the Number Pad (#8) and keep holding them until you have made it all the way up onto the platform. You will now have to climb up yet another ledge to make it to another platform. There is a ledge to climb up where the sunlight is shining. Jump up and pull yourself up. Finally you can leave. Leave the room and you will see a cinema of the guard in the next room. Look around for the room that has a prisoner sitting on the ground. Once you find it go inside. To the right of the prisoner is another door. Go inside here and you will see some showers. Near the back of this room you will find a switch on the floor. Step on it and a trap door will open on the floor above. A cinema will play after you hit the switch, after it's done climb through the trap door you just opened by using ALT and the UP Key on the Number Pad (#8). In the room you come to, you will see an opening in a wall. Go towards this opening and behind it you will find a passageway that leads down. Go down the passageway and when you come to the water, jump in! Underwater, the controls are: ALT + Down (2) on the Number pad to make the Prince come to the surface of the water for air, ALT + Up (8) on the number pad to make him dive deeper into the water and to make him swim, and ALT + Left (4) or Right (6) on the Number pad to make him turn to the left or right. Make the Prince swim to the right where you will find a ledge leading to a platform to get you out of this water. Swim to the ledge, and press SHIFT + Up (8) on the Number Pad to climb out of the water. Turn to your left and you will notice a rock ledge. Climb the ledge with ALT + Up (8) on the Number Pad. You now come to a bridge (the water under the bridge is where you just were). You must RUN across this bridge quickly and don't stop because as you run across it starts to break and fall into the water. If you do happen to fall into the water, just swim back to the ledge and you will have to now jump across the bridge because pieces of it have already fallen out from the last time you crossed it. To jump across, just run forward with Up (8) on the Number Pad and when you get to the bridge press ALT while still holding Up (8) on the Number Pad and you will jump across the empty spaces of the bridge. Once you cross the bridge you will find another ledge to your left. Climb this ledge using ALT + Up (8) on Number Pad. Once you make it up go straight. You will come to another ledge to climb. Climb it and when you get to the top turn right into a corridor that has torches in it. SAVE NOW! I strongly suggest you save your game here because you are going to be doing something pretty difficult and if you fail you can start over from here again rather than doing everything over. Continue going through the corridor. You will come to your first trap. It is lit with a green light. You need to jump over this trap by running with Up (8) on the Number Pad and ALT when you are ready to jump. You won't make it all the way across the trap, but you should hang onto the other side of the trap if you did it correctly. Pull yourself up using ALT + Up (8) on the Number Pad. Once you make it past the trap, you will notice that there is a small hole in the wall. You have to crawl through this hole in order to get to the other side. Use C + Up (8) on the Number Pad to crawl through the hole. Make your way to the prisoner that is on the left. You will see a cinema of this prisoner telling you what to do. I strongly suggest that you save again here. Turn to your right and make your way through the corridor. This is another tough part. You will have to sneak past some guards as the prisoner told you. To sneak Press and hold SHIFT + Up (8) on the Number Pad. Sneak past them, and if you want to go faster, you can run ONLY if they can't see you. Make your way out of this room by sneaking or running if you can. Once you have made your way past the guards, turn right and go to the end of another corridor. Now turn to your left and go through another passageway and under some wooden things. Keep going through this corridor and sneak past the guard that you will come to. At the end of the passageway step on the switch that is on the floor and a cinema will play showing a door being opened. Now you are going to have to go back. Turn around using the #5 key on the Number Pad. Walk back past the guards through the corridor and when you come to some barrels turn right and you will go into another corridor that has torches in it. Yep, you guessed it, save your game again. You should always save your game when you come to new areas. But I will tell you when you should or not. You come to another trap that needs to be jumped over. Use ALT + Up (8) on the Number Pad to jump over the trap. If you don't make it all the way over and land hanging on the other side. Just pull yourself out. If you didn't make it and you fell through the trap you will have to do it again. See why I tell you to save? Go through the door and make your way through the short passageway. Turn left and save your game! Go out the door and make your way through another corridor that has torches in it. Go through this corridor and you will come to 2 traps that are side by side! However, there is a little walkway for you in between them. I suggest you sneak or walk through this walkway because running might make you fall into one of the traps. Continue going through this corridor to the left. You will make your way to another trap. This one has a lot of blood on it. Looks like somebody else wasn't careful :) This trap can be easily tackled by sneaking past it on the left or right side of it. Go all the way to the left or right sides of this trap and sneak by. Go on until you make it to the end of the passageway where you will find a table and a lamp above it. You also might notice a platform that is holding the lamp. Climb up onto this platform using ALT + Up (8) on the Number Pad. Walk the prince to the left wall, and press the #5 key on the Number Pad to turn him around so that he is facing the opening on the right wall. Run to the end of the platform and jump right when you get to the edge. If you do this correctly you should jump over the closed door and into the room that is behind it.
