When you begin, you are offered the choice of two challenges. To select, go to the Gate of Wisdom (puzzle) or the Gate of the Force (arcade).
Gate of Wisdom
Take the feather from the guard's head-dress. Pick up the stone and put it into the gutter over the left statue, then use the feather on it. Move the stone over the right statue, then use the feather on this one as well. Now walk through the opened gate.
Gate of the Force
In this arcade sequence you must shoot at least 26 statutes (out of approximately 50).
Pick up the cocoa leaves and the post. Look right and use the post over the gate entrance. Look to the left and pick up a rock, then throw it at the guard; quickly hide behind the bushes to the left. Assuming the guard didn't see you he will walk over to the entrance; quickly click on the rope to take out the guard.
There are now 2 space battles; destroy the spikes with relatively weak weapons (F1 or F2), then destroy the base with something stronger (F3) before taking out the remaining spikes.
Turn left to find the control screen and enter any 3-digit code to deactivate the security. Go through to the cargo hold and pick up a crowbar from the left, then use this to open the crate of vodka. Take a bottle of vodka. Turn left again and open the click on the hose on the left, then pour in the vodka. Go back out to the main area and approach the throttle lever, moving it to the "On" position. Back at the control screen, you can now press one of the buttons at the bottom to man a turret (either 1 or 2).
Use your weapons against the spikes, but you will eventually be overcome. As El Dorado, fire your grappling hook (F5) to recapture your friend's ship.
Once you are re-united, you must then follow the instructions exactly as given:
- Mark the water hole west of the zone (click on the left blue area)
- Go up the valley and head northeast for about 160 miles (move along the green zone until the counter shows 160)
- Then, cross the pass, east-southeast, about 100 miles (move between the mountains to the right until the counter shows 100)
- Then bypass the peak by going south and continue for 150 miles (move down and slightly left until the counter shows 150)
- You must be aligned with a water hole at 330 to the east, that's the target! (move to the far right blue area until the counter shows 330)
When you are in control of the antenna, just use the controls to move the gray target until it is in the middle of the display.
Pick up the crowbar, then board the train and take the lubricator and the leather strap. Go back outside and use the lubricator on the pulley, then use the crowbar on it. Board the train again and use the crowbar on the peg. Turn the inlet wheel, press the ignition button, then pull the lever. When the attack begins, just click on the flashing orange segment to man the guns in an appropriate direction, and shoot at the incoming enemies until the timer runs down.
Look right and zoom in on the chest, then pick up the shaver, mallet, bottle of mercury, ballasted thread and key. Now look at the safe to the left. Use your mercury on the dials to get rid of the rust. Back out and look further to the left, using the shaver on the rope around the cabinet. Look at the drawer and try to open it with the key, then rub the key in the sand and try again. Read the file inside to see the 3-digit code to open the safe. Go back to the safe and open it.
After the cut-scene, turn on the device, then put your crystal into the memory slot. Select to travel to either planet A or planet B (the next part will be the same, but the order of the two subsequent planets will change based on your selection here).
Use your cannon and missiles on the first enemies, then you can choose to continue fighting now or go straight to the planets. If you continue fighting, the battle will be difficult and will require taking out bases with stronger weapons (F3), however it will eventually make the final fight easier.
Examine the stems on the left; pick up the palm leaf and use it on the footprints in the sand. Now look up and go towards the mangrove. Pick up an oyster and put it on the flat rock. Use your mallet on the oyster and take the pearl - an ape will appear. Get another oyster and throw it at the ape. Now you can go to the nest and use your pearl on the jade egg.
After the cut-scene, use your pearl and jade egg in the crocodile's eye sockets.
Down in the crater, turn to the right and take 2 scepters from the bottom of the door so that it opens. Go through and hit the calabash with your mallet, then pick up both halves. Return outside and to the left. Place the two scepters and one half of the calabash on the 3 pillars, then turn left again and place the other half of the calabash on the keystone over the cave entrance. After the stele breaks open, you can put the power gem on the stele.
Use your cannon and missiles on the first enemies, then you will again have the option to keep fighting. If you do, use the atomic bombs first (F4) while the enemies are still tightly packed together, then switch to other weapons to finish them off.
Head to the cliff and use your peg on the block of stone, then hit it with your mallet. Look up and use your ballasted thread on the root, then look down and use your rope on the thread. Pull on the thread. Take the end of the rope and attach it to the peg. Click on the small stones, then on the block of stone.
In the temple, if you number the prayer scrolls 1-10 from the left, click on 2, 4 and 7, then take the conch. Look in the opening and take the chain, then use the chain on the point near the base of the golden spire. Now use your crowbar on the tray.
Give your conch shell to the Lama. Click on the log to get some branches, then use these on the snow to the left of the Lama. Use the leather strap on the sticks, then attach the tray, and hit it with your mallet. In the ice temple, pick up the goat skin from the right. Use your mallet on the stalactites, then put them in the ray of sun; quickly use your goat skin on the ray of sun to collect the melting water. Pour this water into the pierced bowl. Now put the power gem on the stele.
The difficulty of the first battle here depends on whether you took part in the two optional fights earlier. For the second battle, use the atomic bombs first (F4), then finish the others off with normal weapons.
Use your shaver to get the necklace, then take the charms from it. Back out and the body will disappear. Use your crowbar on the left hatch, then insert the 3 charms into the 3 hollows. Hit each of them with your mallet to reveal a control panel - do not press anything, but instead back out and go to the right opening. Put your crowbar on the ledge in front of the opened hatch to keep it open, then return to the control panel. Press all 6 buttons, then collect the 3 charms again. Go to the hatch and remove your crowbar, then insert the charms in the hollows.
In the maze, click on the large eye doorways to continue forward. Start by heading to the Room of Statues (right, left, right 3 times). Open one of the statues and take a diamond from its mouth, then head through the exit. Now continue to the Room of Mirrors (right, left, right 3 times, left twice). Turn right and use your diamond to cut a mirror, then take the piece of glass. Head through the exit again. Next head to the Room of Pictures (right 3 times, left, right 3 times). Use your piece of glass on the picture of Atahualpa, then take the music box. Leave this room and finally head back to the Room of Statues (left twice, right 3 times, left, right). Use your music box on one of the statues. Click on the Rock of Light.
Click on any flower to open it, then use the Rock of Light on the petals to see its true color - remember this color and take the pollen from the flower. Go to another flower and use the Rock of Light on its petals - if it is the same color, keep moving until you find one of a different color. Once you find a different one, combine your existing pollen with that from the new flower. Open that flower again and use the Rock of Light to see that it now has 2 different colors of petals. Take some pollen from this hybrid flower and keep moving. Now find a flower with a third different color and combine your pollen with this one. Open your new 3-way hybrid flower.
