View Full Version : Level 25 -- Chambers of Tulun
Ok, here I am trying to outrun the huge Egyptian soldier guy that is sending out the shock waves. The walkthrough says to, "Run into the building with the guard on your tail and head into the room to the south." What building? There isn't any entrance to the left or right. The only way into a building in that area is by pulling the gear wheel, but as I read on through the level, I found that that comes later. In any case, I don't have a building to run into. I've ran all over the area dodging the soldier with a flare at least 10 times trying to find an opening for a building. Tell me what I'm missing, please.
To your left (by the step where the soldier first emerges) is an open area which Lara must tease the Egyption into and then trap him within the middle of the installation. There is, however, a far easlier way forward...pull the wheen and dive few. Two health packs and some nimble fingers can chop 5 mins off this section.
Hey tlr, thanks for getting back to me, but I have no idea what you're talking about. I mean, the soldier emerges on my right by the gear wheel and no matter how many times I tried, I saw no "open area." The only open area is after the door opens by turning the gear wheel, but the soldier doesn't follow you in. And what does this mean?..."pull the wheen and dive few".
What I did was climb up the 'ladder' after opening the door with the gear wheel. I followed the corridor and dropped down. There was a cut scene where Lara talks to a wounded man. Can I just go ahead and finish the level here? Or do I need to pull the lever mentioned in the walkthrough? It seems to me that that is the whole point to this level, except for some weapons, ammo and health. If I finish the level without pulling the lever, will it cost me in the end? I would just skip the level if I could ever get my compass to go transparent. Thanks tlr.

The whole point of this section, apart from progression, is to trap the Egyption in the main building surrounded by the dusty path and therefore continue unhindered. You can continue the level with your present ladder course also, you will eventually pop back down to where the wheel is and continue, but bear in mind the soldier will still be roaming the area.

Opposite the ramp you fist come down to this level is a door way. (into the mosque) Park the bike so you can speed away easily facing the direction of the pit. Run straight through the mosque and out the other side. Find the guard (the monster) and run back into the mosque. Head straight through and either side of the door to the outside are 2 blocks you can climb on. Climb the left one.
Turn round 180 degrees on the ledge, do a running jump and grab from the ledge you're on to the ledge above the arch way. From here, walk out onto the concrete ledge and face the west wall. Do arunning jump and grab to the next ledge. Shimmy round till you can stand up. Face the north and jump to and grab the textured wall. Shimmy round to the right to the next ledge. Follow the ledge and into the corridor. at the end of the corridor, jump and grab and pull yourself up. Run out on to the roof to the leaver. Now might be a good to save your game. The monster is in side the mosque, so when you pull the leaver, he's trapped inside, for now. Now, move quickly, very quickly. Turn round and walk to the edge of the roof. Look for the angled section of roof. Run and jump to the ledge to the right of the angled roof. Now walk on tho the angled roof. Grab the rope and get lara to face the opening on the south wall. Waight for the rope to stop swinging. You get a more accurat ejump - you need to be perfect otherwise she dops onto the one below. Which is wrong. Once on the high ledge, run straight past the bad guy and down the hole. It thakes you to where you parked your bike. Drive round the mosque and over the hole. Keep going round till you cant get any further. Get off the bike and head for the big wheel. Ignore the fly and pull the wheel 3-4 times. This opens a gate infront of you, on the wall to your right. Run through and up the ladder. If your fast enough, you'll make it up to the Citadel Gate (next stage). if you've not bee fast enough, the monster'll have escaped and be banging the ground outside so you can't climb up. Either go back to where you saved it, or head out the tunnel (jump + grab, it's a slope) and try again. Job done. Later...
