Tomb Raider: Anniversary Strategy Guide


Level 5: St. Francis Folly

Climb the far two pillars using the gaps in the sides. Jump across to the next pillar and over to the platform. In the room with the wall painting, stand on the pressure spot to turn out the lights on it. Continue through the room to see an identical wall painting with two spots illuminated.

Return to the lit painting and shoot the two lights that correspond with the picture to open the door. Cross the platforms beyond it and find another painting. Return, reset the lights and shoot these four lights. Go through the new gate. Use the grappling hook to pull two pins out of the ball.

Push the ball down to the ground. Return to the floor and push the ball onto a circular pressure switch in the middle of the room. Climb up two pillars. From the top of the second, jump to the lower platform with a newly opened gate. Go down to the switch and pull it to open a lower door. Make your way to the bottom of the room and pull the switch on the wall.

The door to Atlas will open. Return back up the central platform, until you reach an upright stone pillar on the wall to the right of Atlas’s. Shoot the circle to make it collapse. Walk across the pillar and follow the ledges right and up to another switch. Pull it to open the door to Hephaestus.

Jump back to the central platform, turn right and use the grapple hook to pull out the floor next to where a bit sticks out. Jump to the platform, to the right wall ledge and follow the ledges (no matter what) to reach the Atlas door. Shoot the button on the wall opposite where you exit Atlas. Jump across from the level above and use the right ledges to get to the Hephaestus door.

Atlas Puzzle

Push the lever to close the floor and jump across. Jump the ledges to your left to reach a switch to make a pole appear. Shoot the two buttons behind the statue (stand far back), and the ball rolls to you. Jump to the pole, then to the floor. Run and get the key from under the statue. Use the broken pillar opposite where the first switch was to find another switch to get you back.

Hephaestus Puzzle

In the electricity room, jump on each of the raised squares to open the gates. Push the first statue in the hole (facing in). Push the white block to the pressure spot under the hammer for the second statue to slot in. Step on a pressure spot but move before the hammer comes down; climb up it for a white block to get a third statue. Use the hammer to open the key’s gate. Return to the entrance of Atlas. Drop down to the ledge and shimmy left.

Follow the ledges around (don’t use the pole, climb up to the platform to make the diagonal jump instead of hanging) to the switch. Climb up to the level where ledges to the door start. Shoot the pillar to make it drop. Push crates so you can use the ledges. Drop down to the door to Damocles.

Go to the top of the room and you’ll see the fourth switch. On the wall to the right of this one, there are two more platforms. Jump over to the right one then across to the left one, to the pole, then to the ledge. Pull the switch to open the door to the final room. Jump onto the platform and make your way around the ledges to the left of this room to enter it.

Level 6: The Coliseum

From the arena, climb up the sloping stone and jump to the seats. Run up the slope and right, and you’ll see a big pillar with gaps you can climb to. Jump up twice, then black to the platform. Make your way round to slide down to an area with a locked gate. Pull the lever in front of it for access.

Go through the gate, head right and use the grappling hook to pull a small cage off the top of the second big cage. Use both pushing and grappling to haul the cage over the wooden slope back to where you came. Pull it next to the cage there and use it to reach the key on top.

Return to the locked door (use the key). Climb the ladder, go left. Jump to the first platform. Use the grapple to swing to the next, jump to the left to the pillar handhold. Jump on the ledge, edge round and pull yourself up. Jump down to the next platform. Go down to the exit door.

    how exactly do you use the hammer to open the door?
  • CecilianneMureaux - July 23, 2009 9:24 p.m.

    When you get to the big double doors you'll want to climb up the left side (because you can't climb up the right side) and go around to the right side via the poles in the wall over the entrance to that room and pull that weight down first, then jump down and back up the left wall and pull that one. Hint: They don't actually go back up once you pull them down. Any other questions my e-mail is
