    I never noticed any windmills in the Native Village, to be honest. On that level you need to get the Shield and pass the "Initiation" rites. The latter is what gives you access to the Native Games. Once you've done that, you've done all you need to do on that level other than playing the Native Games.

    The best way to find all the Shamans, and for that matter the Idols and Explorers, is to explore all around every level when you get there. These things tend to be tucked in out-of-the-way places. If there's a stinky plant, or a wall requiring TNT, or a wall requiring Pickaxes to climb that appears to serve no function on the main quest, then there's a pretty good chance you'll find something useful if you explore that area (even if it means having to come back in the future). Look under ramps, atop ledges, behind moving walls, stuff like that. A general rule of thumb is that there are very few things in this game that are not there for a reason—if you see some boxes that let you climb up to another area, for example, there's probably a reason why you should climb up there.

    The easiest way to confirm whether you've gotten all the Idols, Explorers, and Shamans is to buy the "notes" from the Shaman (Cavern Notes, Jungle Notes, etc.). These tell you, for each level: "Idols x/y," "Explorers x/y," and "Shaman." "X/Y" denotes "you've found X, there are Y total on this level." For "Shaman" it says either "Waiting" (i.e., you haven't found him yet) or "Gone Away" (i.e., you found him and bought something from him).

    The Smash Strike and the Breakdance Strike are more useful in the scheme of things than the "notes," so I suggest buying those in the near future if you can. The Breakdance Strike in particular is useful in the mountains and the Smash Strike is useful in the caverns, although you can get past either area without these abilities.

    Time Limit

    HAHA I figured it out all on my own without reading this... only because I was too lazy to get off the couch and come and read it. I figured out that you have to roll under the door, and that you don't need speed to swing from vine to vine. I was trying TOO hard...it was much easier than I thought.
    I have to say that majorly ticked me off.
    I did find the 'original pitfall' game in the temple and played it for about 2 minutes, until I realized how frustrating it was. LOL I don't remember getting an idol for playing it, or do you just get one for unlocking it? I'll have to go back and check.
    Cheers to you all

    You don't have to win the game, but you have to play to a certain point.

    Hope someone can give me a hint ... I am in Monkey Temple, I've turned back into Harry (not a monkey anymore), but I can't figure out how to get out of here! The way I came in is closed up, and I can't seem to do anything at the end of the tunnel where the shiny treasure-thing is turning on the pedestal.

    Thanks!

    Hey 1995hoo -

    Another pitfall question for you. I may be mistaken, but it seems I'm approaching the end of the game too quickly. Recently, I ended up back at the Ladder of Miles, then the Mama ....towers (second time through), and then out to the Fire Bombed towers. After there, I'm suddenly at the Gates of El Dorado, which is where I've stopped. It looks like the Ruins of El Dorado are after that, which to me looks like the end of the game. But I can tell there are still a few unvisited sites on the map yet (and I also haven't found the original Pitfall yet). I do have the TNT, which I know is the last thing you receive.

    Any suggestions?
    Thanks.
    Tom

    The Fire-Bombed Towers are the final area before the end of the game, although it doesn't hurt to go in there early (once you have TNT) to get the Idol and Explorer because there is no Shaman there, meaning you'll have to backtrack to make the final Shaman visit.

    If you got the TNT, you finished up in the mountains. The map would have shown you where to go next, which if I remember correctly is back to the Native Jungle to blow up a wall off the Jungle Canyon after the place where you found the very first Shaman way back when you started the game. The easiest way to get there from the Mama-Oullo Tower is to go back up to the mountains and use the Raft via Cavern Lake. (Whilst there you can rescue an Explorer.) Getting past the Penguin Den is, as you've probably found, a lot easier with TNT.

    (I'm trying not to give away too many spoilers of the next few stages. If you need more specific detail, send me a private message.)

    The one thing I do recommend you do while you have easy access to the mountains, if you have not already done so, is to go visit the Ekkeko Ice Cavern. You need TNT to get in there. Access is off the Valley of the Spirits (so you have to go back through the Spinja Lair and Viracocha Monoliths....but this time you have TNT to blast all the annoyances out of your way). The Ekkeko Cavern isn't part of the mission per se, but it is well worth your time to go visit.

    Pick up the shiny treasure thing (grab it like you do an Idol). Then there is only one way out of that room.

    Thank you! For some reason I couldn't pick up the shiny thing yesterday -- I think now that maybe I was holding the torch when I tried it. Duh!!
