Thank You. I will try the sling and look for the lever.
I'm 92% done with the game. I'm in the Flooded Courtyard and need to get back to the Jungle Trail but I must have taken one too many knocks with the TNT back @ St. Claire's camp. Will someone please point me in the right direction. You can't get back thru the Monkey Temple or Twin Outposts and I've tried super dive and heroic feet to "try" and get past the lava rocks @ Flooded Courtyard but am having no luck. How did you get back to Jungle Trail?
Later I went back to finish some more Native Games, but ultimately I never did finish all of them, and when I finally said "Enough is enough" I went to finish the game via the Flooded Courtyard. You need to Heroic Dash to the brick area (where you first got that ability), then Heroic Dash to the wall and Rising Strike up. You can't stop before doing the Rising Strike, however. Just race across the lava and then Rising Strike up to the walkway.
I was afraid you were going to say that. I've had to go back to the healing water a bunch of times b/c I always get "coal-ed" feet from the lava. *sigh* Thank you for answering. I've also gone back to play the games. heh I wish they had a sled run game.
I can't believe you're playing this a second time. I'm determined ... and struggling to finish this the first time!
One possible alternative for you would be to use the teleporters to get back to the mountains, then raft to Jungle Canyon, then work your way across to the Fire-Bombed Towers via that route. You can access the Jungle Teleport by blowing up a particular wall at the Turtle Monument.
So I went like this: Native Village ---> Turtle Monument ---> Jungle Teleport ---> Cavern Teleport ---> Mountain Teleport ---> White Valley ---> Penguin Den ---> Ladder of Miles ---> Mama-Oullo Tower ---> Fire-Bombed Towers.
This route worked rather nicely because it avoided the nuisance of that huge cluster of howler monkeys on the Jungle Trail (sure, you can just blow them all up with TNT, but it's still a nuisance). The Breakdance Strike works REALLY well against the penguins, as does TNT. This route was faster than it sounds because the teleporters don't take much time to use.
After I got the Idol and Explorer I went back to the Native Village: Fire-Bombed Towers ---> Mama-Oullo Tower ---> Ladder of Miles ---> Penguin Den ---> White Valley ---> Mountain Teleport ---> Jungle Teleport ---> Turtle Monument ---> Native Village
(Yesterday after visiting the Mysterious Temple I had decided to go play the Native Games before going to St. Claire's Camp, so for that part I went from Bittenbinder's Camp ---> Flooded Cave ---> Renegade Fort ---> Butterfly Glade ---> Turtle Monument ---> Native Village.)
Spoiler Alert!Pitfall II: Lost Caverns, the old Atari 2600 game. I hadn't played that since probably 1985.
It took me a tad under 14 hours of gameplay to finish the game the second time through; the first time, it took around 32 hours.
Best news: It saidafter the ending video concluded (but before I went back to Punchau Shrine).Spoiler Alert!"See you soon for Harry's next adventure"

Ha! Me too. I remember this game in the "good old days". I've reached the final Pusca battle but have been trying for two days to knock those infernal pillars into the minions and the floating Pusca. I've realized now that if you utilize your Pickaxe spin ... that you're virtually indestructible however, when going into the final battle I try to strategize too much.
I do believe I'm getting a blister on my right thumb from trying to heroic dash everywhere. LOL
