Current Mission - Scale the Outer Wall, Which Leads to the Clock Tower

Immediately at the start there’s a corpse on your left clutching a scroll. Otherwise move right and drop to the ledge. Follow the linear route to the right, hooking up when required. You’ll come out onto a ledge with a health refill, use as required and then jump up.

$$$item 3620

Move into the courtyard and you’ll notice a Magic Refill Font in the top left corner and a puzzle in front of the door but no time to linger, as there are vampires and skeletal warriors to kill! A crystal will deal with this instantly, or plenty of Holy Water and fairies will do the trick just as well.

Puzzle - Semantic Rune Challenge

Six in total, three of each colour. 2 blue on the left, the next clue hardly makes any sense – the runes closest and furthers away match the run opposite is an easier clue. At least one of the runes furthest away is blue.

  • On the left side, reading upward, the first and second runes are blue and the third is red.
  • On the right side, reading upwards, the first rune is Blue and the second and third are red.

With the puzzle solved, run through the gate and drop down onto the chain, following it alllllll the way down to a circular area with a Crank in the middle. Ignore the crank for now because there are gremlins to deal with. Silver daggers make short work of them or some simply whipping.

Once all the gremlins have had their wings clipped its time for a mini puzzle. Use the crank by pushing it around, now you need to run down and roll through the door as it automatically moves back round to its original position.

The easiest way is to run down then block, and then just roll as the door comes near. Land down and then run into the downward stairs into the building you were just on top of. Take the Tower Key from the corpse down here and then fight the two Shadow Masters that appear. Remember those fairy distractions!

Once they are down use the crank and exit, follow the path up and then run aaallllll the way up the chain till you get inside the building at the very top.

$$$item 3588

Simply run toward the door and use the key inside the lock to the right.


Objective: Finish the level after killing 10 Gremlins using only your Silver Daggers

Simple. Make sure you grab some upgrades as the Gremlins can take a few daggers before exploding in a flash of claret. Now play the level as normal and after crossing the first chain, let the knives fly!
