GMac - Lara of Light - The Lake of Stars

Post by Iido » 23 Aug 2020 05:19

This level is a mess IMO.. not really sure what to do. I sequence broke past one of the flaming skulls, got a skull item, and the silver secret, came back, the skull exploded... I then got into the area with the 4 skull recepticals, got the ruby from here, placed it in a snake head, only for it to.. presumably deactivate the skull that already exploded, resulting in 0 progress. I can't figure out how to get to any of the other islands.

no the 4 skulls doors are to deactivate the flaming dragon head on top of the pillar in same room where you get the ruby and use skulls
but you should play it properly
unless you mean the flaming portals explodes after you used a
thistle or gem then they explodes if you run fast or are in the middle
i bypassed them by crawling to right or left of middle
only needed first time you pass them

Yes, I'm talking about the flaming skull portals. It seems you are supposed to deactivate them using levers or items, but I managed to slip past one without doing this, which threw things out of order and was the sequence break I mentioned. I wasn't even aware I was doing it "wrong" at first because it was so easy to do.

At any rate, my issue is that I'm at a dead end. I've got 2 flame portals deactivated. The 3rd one I assume needs a 2nd Ruby, probably used on the snake statue protected by spikes, which are still up. I also found a cave under one of the islands with a closed gate at the end of the tunnel, and another cave on another island that had a ladder at the end and a spike trap guarding it. I can't find my way to anywhere else new, so I can only assume I'm missing some path or a button somewhere...

you missed a lever after you jumped some slopes and you shoot a statue
after you used the gem from the temple where the burning dragons are
and if you feel something are wrong you should reload a save and do it properly
or else you break the game

Managed to finish the level.. it wasn't so bad actually, and that lever was very obvious once I saw it. :hammer:

Just one more question about this level, how do you get the gold secret?

I'm able to jump directly to the island, but I'm guessing this is not how you're supposed to do it because there is no way for me to get back.. I assume I need a platform or something.
