Let's Play Tomb Raider - Nautical Style

Post by High Priestess » 16 Oct 2017 18:17

A day early but almost a week has passed so let us get to some ship levels :D

Sadly, I haven't found many nautical levels that have appealed because so many seem to be based on the Maria Doria from TR II.

However Talos' "Fireworks" was a most excellent piece of work - information here:

Video walkthrough here:

This is clearly based on Jim Cameron's "Titanic" and although there is a little backtracking, this level boasts decadence and nice gameplay.

Please feel free to suggest other good levels (shipwrecks and desert islands included!) :2thumbsup:

Wreck of the Blue Storm contains atmospheric settings and brilliant gameplay combined (but quite dark): http://www.trle.net/sc/levelfeatures.php?lid=2721

When you say dark though, do you mean in terms of resolution or a dark story? Lol :-P :D

There are the first level of "Escape in the Pacific" by Daffy where Lara is captive on a cargo :).

Very nice adventure where the player can choose the difficulty he/she want.
I don't know what you want to say exactly by nautical but if I remember well there a are beautiful yacht in "Base near the Ruins" by Sakiel :).

I have loved this level :2thumbsup: .

Thanks, BigFoot!

Yes I recall playing Daffy's level - I think this is the one whereby Lara has to do a timed run to blow things up (in customary fashion), and reach the lifeboat in a tightly-timed run. I sure had fun on that one.

Any more good ship levels folks? By the way, there was another level I started playing yet can't remember completing. It started I think on a beach. I know that doesn't help much but it isn't the one with those cages on the shore. I recall there was another female in the mix and this cave that Lara goes into. Something like whisky or a bottle or rum was involved if I remember (my memory is a little sketchy). I would say it was done using either the TR II or III engine so it wasn't that pirate level either. :hammer:

The Pirate Princess by Luke: http://trle.net/sc/levelfeatures.php?lid=2486

You seem to have reviewed that one, so maybe you did complete it... :)

This level is awesome, but the saves don't work on Vista :cry: and I can't do the timed run.

Have you tried setting the compatibility mode to Windows 7 or 8? I believe that the saves only work on those versions. I might be wrong, but that's all I can think of that might be the problem.

Oh! I'm glad to read this :angel:

Thank you, I'm glad you liked it (I love Titanic, don't you see? :lol: XD)

If you are looking for a sea level and pirates there is also Parrot's Cove. It's not like Fireworks, but if you're looking for drunk pirates, all right :lol:

You can also try Tomb Raider the Resurrection: There are levels set aboard a sunken cargo ship, the Karin Vatis
