Next up, Cistern then Tomb of Tihocan. Good thing the centaurs aren't like the ones from TR Anniversary.

The Cistern:

Playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZwQT...C5-bq8RaFccxLV

I collected all 3 secrets, all 28 pickups and killed all 34 enemies. I only used the pistols, didn't use any glitches and didn't lose any health. I unsuccessfully attempted to use a healthpack at the end of the level just to show you that my health was at the maximum; you can't use healthpacks when your health is full. Therefore, my attempt to use the healthpack resulted in a healthpack not being used due to my health being full.

Good thing I'm not as bad at TR1 as I am with Anniversary.

Ha, the centaurs in Tr1 aren't that tough. The centaurs in Anniversary are just annoying.

The original TR1 ones take a lot of killing with the pistols, you can do that from inside the building but you have to be patient.

There are several places in Atlantis where there's no easy retreat or safe position to give you the time to use the pistols.

I don't remember Anniversary very well but I do remember having a hard time with the centaurs.

I have practiced this challenge and did have a fair bit of trouble with the centaurs when practicing.

It's all about learning the centaurs attack pattern. Once a player has the pattern down he/she can avoid its shots fairly easily.
On to Egypt!

I was thinking about Egypt and that 3rd Secret in the Obelisk Of Kharmoon.

How is that going to be handled? It is possible to trigger the secret without damage but when needing to collect the items under the play criteria can that be done without damage?

I must suck against the centaurs then as they have a recurring tendency to cause me problems.

On to Egypt indeed.

With glitches, it's possible to collect that secret without taking damage. Without glitches, I don't believe that you can collect that secret without taking damage. My plan is to jump to the secret the normal way and take damage from it.

@ Greenapple: I'll give you some tips on how to evade the centaurs fireballs at a later time. Good luck on the Egypt levels.

The 'trick' I think must be the speed you hang-dropped down. I've always broken the floor then hopped back and tried to kill the wolves from above but they don't always give you that chance and never all of them.

Once they're triggered it is a lottery where they are in the room and because of the height LC lands in the crouched position she can not start firing as quickly as needed nine time out of ten.
I'm also very intrigued by this approach and need to try this out next time I'm there. This room usually costs me a lot of time when I'm in the mood for a no-scratch run of that level.
