Sand Temple Walkthrough
Walk down the stares look to the right hook shot on the red plate above the platform jump across to the next platform than again to the 1 ahead NOT the square platform. when on the flat area jump to the square platform it will start to sink don’t panic just move to the flat area in front of it roll to the fenced in area from there walk out into the quick sand start pulling the lever ONLY A LITTLE AT A TIME or u will die and have to do it all over again. When leaving be careful not to walk into the slanted area u can’t save your self from there. It will kill you. Now that you made you’re way in you’ll notice 2 things on the left theres 3 pots... Break the 1st 2 you’ll notice the 3rd one has liquid in it? Its only lantern oil I suggest you fill up once done this turn you'll see wooden planks just like in the fire temple, go smash them and walk in stay to the right so and just roll across the sand safe ur self those 2 seconds one in the locked door ull see nothing at all… this is when you turn on ur lantern to see that its actually a huge room with lots of little skeletons use the nun chuck to clean out a good portion of them than run directly straight to the door, o good gracious there’s bars on it what do we do when there’s bars? Panic u say? No! The correct answer is LIGHT THE TORCHES ON THE SIDE! (2 of them on the right one on the left) walk on in and run forward nothing to see exactly right this second you'll get a cut scene great…
Just sit there and watch the little poes take ur fire that obviously is going to cause the door to close! Turn into a wolf to fight the 1st Poe… but wait...o shit? He’s not ur average poe he’s HUGE! Quickly kill gim and take his soul. Shouldn’t be very hard the flame will immediate go back to where it originally was!
YES only 3 more now! Hey did he wet himself before u killed him? Of course not it’s only the Poes scent! Follow the 1st scent that will lead you to sum quick sand a little puddles worth, dig it up and ull see there’s actually a chain hidden pull it and ull uncover hidden stares! Go down and open the door ull see a pillar in the middle of the room with a shot wall attacked to it (its that little panel thing) go up to it and ull see that you can push it!
Do it ull open a wall and see a mummy… real scary ur a 160 pound werewolf and ur supposed to be spooked by a mummy? Kill him quickly just so he/she is out of your way open that chest to find a key get out of there now go back up the steps and turn left go out the door that is behind ( and above the stares ) *This door is directly ABOVE the door that is under the stares* ull come in and see a locked door hey ur going the right way! Good for you ull see the scent as soon as u walk in follow it BUT BE CAREFUL… turn right as soon as u walk in ull see a little platform u can walk to (THERE IS QUICKSAND IN THIS ROOM) spikes will pop up if you didn’t go to the one that’s on ur immediate right, if u did go to that 1 than cross the next one. When you on that 1 spikes will pop out beside you and ull see 2 plat forms 1 on your right one on ur left go to the one on the left now that ur on it spikes just popped up ur face turn to the right and go on that one. Now there’s really only 1 platform left go to it and climb the wall now you will see a box. This is exactly when you want to be a human… O wait, that’s right you can change into one when ever you want! Grab the piller and pull it backwards and than push it into the gap you'll need to walk on this a little later on walk up the stairs now and jump across onto the higher area you'll see a chain you can grab onto start pulling it ull notice that huge round thing starting to rise off the ground.. get it as high up as possible than let go and run by it if u don’t do it the 1st time do it again. Now that, that’s done make sure your carful walking into that room at the top of the stares … fire head will fly RIGHT into you there’s nothing in this room but a chest at the back behind the statue that holds… well u can figure that much out on your own. Hey! Look on that new map of urs there be treasure in that room mby it’s not just a statue after all?! Go on the statues right side *if your looking directly at it* its exactly like that pillar it will move the walls push it until it locks into place than run in and get you’re treasure YAYY!!! Ignore the mummy as link you cant touch him (It’s a small key so you kind of need this) now run out again wouldn’t u know it! That statue is a life saver what does it open up on the other side of the wall!? Time to use that new key u just got … well that was short lived … now open the door and get it okay I STRONGLY recommend changing into a wolf for this part… just do what I say don’t try and be a hero.. kill everything in the as u finish u should see a wall with a design on it, all checkered at the end of this wall ull see a little puddle of sand just like before. If you don’t understand just put ur sense on and ull see… that cool looking wall I just told u about? Yah when u start pulling away at the chain it starts going away… hey look who it is! Poe#2 finish him off…
Now that that’s done walk out the door down the hall you haven’t explored… or u might have but u didn’t have to. Now that you walked it’s a good time to turn sense on and get that chest to the right when ur at the circle… LOTS OF MICE! They don’t do much… kill them and move out, go up the stares and turn right (the opposite side of the chest than jump that side you can actually jump from the other side. Open that locked door and ull see a cut scene showing the poe flaming going back get across… Simply jump on the circle thing DON’T FALL THOUGH because that would just suck for you. Go around the hole not in it … now that you made it across get in that door… go to the left and just drop down push that cube all the way till it falls into place than climb up it and grab the chain start pulling back while doing this please be warned 2 slugs are going to try and attack you… I just pulled the chain off to the side a little and after they attacked ran across ignoring them... you made it to the treasure hop off on the right side and go into that door ( not the side where the door is raised the side where the doors on the ground) ull come back to the main room where you killed your 1st Poe on the left side of the stares there’s a chest with a FULL heart in it! Cool huh? The right side has the dungeon map… okay now its time to go back down the steps again ( in the main room the hidden ones) okay now that ur in that room your going to have to spin the room around again than after ur doors gone so u cant get out u have to find a new way … look up with that hook shot … there’s a HOLE in the roof hook shot up onto to red thing on the wall. Than go in the unexplored room time to wolf it up the ghost will be in the 2nd indent on the right side attack him.
3 down 1 to go now its time to go back into the floor where u came from you simple re move the room open up the door and than go straight ull be right back in that room we left so suddenly now turn left and follow the trail… back up on the stone and pull the wire watch out for those stupid bugs again. This time when you walk across be sure to STOP … ya that’s right STOP in the ditch that is of course. Its going to fall but not hurt you get on it and get across and in the door HEY THAT’S NOT A POE… kill him he uses his shield a lot … if u cant figure out a way to kill him not my fault… no just use ur shield and dodge left and attack ether that or use that jump attack to stun him than use the nunchuck to take him out just drop a bomb on him and say “gg noob” go into that new area that has just been unlocked (get the 10 bombs in the 2 chests if you want 1st) okay now ur in a huge room I really hope u listened to me and got oil… u have lots of things to light in this room
The Right combo is the front 1 and the one to the FAR right and now its Poe time! Of course this 1’s got to act like a hero he’s simple though… stay locked on and its not a problem or hold lock down and it will eventually go to him when he’s attack get him than.
Getting the Boss Key
Okay all for Poes are dead get back to the main area go in and kill the flying skulls go left and drop down slowing hook shot ur way with the red things you can attach to spin it and as u spin it go into the holes in the wall 1 has a key ( 2nd spin) okay spin back to the bottom now and unlock the door now its time for a game I like to call HIT or MISS u can make ur way thought room but ull get spikes in u if u just run it go in a squiggle pattern… (Starting from when you walk in) *here is a good time to mention use SENSE invisible mice are in this room* go left up right up straight to the end of the room ull see a chain u can’t pull as a dog so its time to change into dundunnun! Link, pull it than go back to the middle turn right and than turn right again and roll past the sand on the floor the room is right there go into it before it slams shut on you if it do it again this time ull no where to go, okay new area now! Run across the floor will shake don’t worry once over there just roll past the sand DON’T hit those spinning things they suck… watch out for the termites kill them all 1st be more moving on they will slow you down and make u die, ull notice the left side is A LOT longer than the rest of the hard sand area.. wait till the spikes pass u run and roll to the next safe spot and move out of the spikes way its easy… you do almost the same thing here but you can wait till they go back to roll across. DON’T go in the door just yet get across ull see a pot and sum skulls break them and its ur little bird friend Ooccoo! Okay onward we go. Wait for the termites kill them all at once and just RUN straight across okay kill the 3 skeletons and ur door will open … go back to that spinning room of death don’t try going to the right go AROUND. Okay now DON’T just go into that room kill there termites there is A lot of them than make ur way past it just jump across you can make it now ur in a dark room … with a weird thing attack it ! O good gravy its momma Poe you really did it this time! The trick to this is getting him in the air, attack him with ur bow, that really ticks him off hell try to melee you attack him and hell run away scared well done do this 3 times and its game over him... Door opens and now everyone’s happy and now u got a boss ke… wait it’s a freaking spinner there’s more?! (btw. spinner is so gay) use it to get out ull see a track u can follow on both sides. Now that out go to the left side of the wall another track. You'll end up on this little platform notice the other side has a track to that leads to a door use ur spinner to get up. Get to the outside so u avoid the attacking spikes ull see a track that winds up the ledge go up and get a heat piece now use that track behind the chest stop once u get to the platform and use the track on the right just before it ends use the JUMP (B) to get to the other side follow the rest to a new area go up to the right using the spinner this is a pretty fun part you get to jump back n forth avoiding each spike as it passes. Open that door it’s a BOSS KEY!!!
Getting to the Boss Chamber
Finally this is coming to an end! Use the spinner to get a cross than use it in the middle of the room and press SPIN (B) repeatedly. Now you need to use that spinner again to get all the way up the broken stares get to the top and than spin down at top set of broken stares jump off the track than hop off than jump into the middle platform spin the spinner to light the fire keep doing this till a new track comes up (go up it obviously) than boss time…
How to kill the boss
The boss is actually very simple! Use your top and the same track as the Spikes * the Spikes move faster than you and will knock you off the track* get sum speed than JUMP (B) off and attack his SPINE 3 hits and he’s dead simple!... well he’s not dead but u can relax for now put the spinner in the hole (located in the middle of the room) you'll send up a huge pillar…
However its not over u fall to the bottom spin on the tracks up the pillar when he goes to shoot fire at you shoot off to the other tracks along the wall keep going back n forth until u hit him 1st time u do this you wont need to do it ull miss a track and bounce into him (or at least I did) next time u have to attack him when he goes to the side of you
