    I am stuck in the Money Temple.

    I have 45 seconds to stop the monkey who has "morphed" into Harry, but can not get the monkey nor the lady monkey to stop him.

    Please advise what is the next step to get him stopped.

    You need to use your "A" button to lunge at Harry. When you do it right, you'll grab him, and then the mother monkey will pummel him. You're going to have to repeat this four times.

    That's the next level I need to play, so I can't help you there. It's the next-to-last level of the game, however, so if you went in there at some early stage, then you need to go back because it's not time to go there yet.

    I will confirm that I finished the game tonight. I simply walked right through the opening that leads to the Gates of El Dorado. If you can't do this, then you went the wrong way and need to backtrack. Look at where the red "X" is on the map to tell you where to go.

    I don't know if you're still stuck as a monkey, but if you get even remotely close to Harry ... shake your remotes in tandem with pushing the A button ... this causes the baby monkey (you) to latch onto evil Harry. Then mama monkey knocks into him. Do it four times and you're free! =D

    THANK YOU Baja!!! I have been trying to figure out how to 'tick off' the mother monkey for the last 45 mintues. I knew she was the key, I had the baby monkey lunging....but didn't put all the pieces together.

    Thanks so Much!
    I am sure that I will be back here checking up on a few things from time to time!
    Cheers

    Hey There;

    I have been doing so well on my own, but I am stuck in the Turtle Monument. I stand on the button on the floor...how do I get it to stay down to smash the pot behind it? At one point I got stuck underneath the floor, and rolled right off the edge of the game into a pink abyss. :S

    When you enter that room, go around to the right behind the fallen pillars. There is an urn that has a Bush Ninja hiding behind it. Instead of killing him, you need to induce him to follow you so that HE stands on the button. As long as you face away from him, he'll creep along behind you. Once he stands on the button, he won't be able to get off. Then you can smash the urn behind the wall.

    The other thing you need to find in that room is the more important in the scheme of the game, FWIW.

    Thanks 1955
    I found the "more important" thing in that room....but I just had to have whatever was in the shiny Urn. Now I can find out what it is!! :)
    When I go back to there, I will have to remember not to kill ALL the natives!

    I am currently struggling with the time limit in the native fortress...my fingers just don't move that fast! LOL

    This is showing my age, but I used to play pitfall as a kid on my Atari! I have to admit it's a lot harder in 3D!

    Haha Car! You're not the only one. Once upon a time, I remember playing this on Atari as well. ;) It took me two days to get out of the fortress. As daunting as it may seem ... it's all about coordination. I practiced getting from the left hand side tower to the right side tower, to the swinging vine for about 2 hours. Finally, I realized if you have killed all the natives and then swing ... ROLL under the gate ... it IS doable. I swear. lol

    Right now, I'm stuck trying to kill the last Pusca battle. Oy! Whatta PITA!

    Good luck!

    I loved the old Atari Pitfall as well. That's why I got this one, because of all the good memories. I suppose it's not a spoiler to tell you that you have to play the original Atari Pitfall in this game in order to get one of the Idols!

    The time limit you reference in the Renegade Fort was a massive nuisance the first time I went there. Took me an hour. The trick I found was not to waste time swinging back and forth on the first rope to gain speed. I face the rope before throwing the lever, then Heroic Dive to the rope, jump immediately on the first swing (I single-jump off it, then double-jump in mid-air) and then take it from there. Remember you can roll under the gate if needed.

    If you're trying to collect all the Idols and Explorers (which you should), you'll have to repeat the Renegade Fort later. The Explorer in the next level can only be reached once you have TNT.

    I thought that was one of the easier battles. Remember that you can use all your Heroic Handbook abilities if needed; you can also hide somewhere and drink from your Canteen if you filled it at the Fire-Bombed Towers.

    I'm stuck in the same general area. I'm back in the room at the Turtle Monument. I have the native standing on the button so that the green column stays down. I'd smashed the vase behind that column in a previous visit (by standing on the button and using aiming my sling at the vase). Now, even though I can walk up to the shiny idol, I can't take it from the explorer. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks!!
    Tom

    Always empty Harry's hands before trying to grab an Idol.

    I'm assuming you must be at the Native Village for the second time (meaning you went there, saw the "Kill" video, then went and got the Princess to go back to the village, and then you entered the village). Based on that, I'll answer these in order:

    (1) TNT—comes later in the game

    (2) Pickaxes—ditto (these come way before the TNT does)

    (3) When you enter the Native Village after luring the Princess home with the butterflies, you should be given the Shield. Use it to go through the "initiation" rites (sounds like you did this already).

    (4) You need not win the Native Games before you move on, and indeed you CANNOT win them all yet, since three of them (Pickaxe Race, KABOOM!, and Raft Bowling) require equipment you don't have yet. You can play the games to which you already have access, though. Tuco Shoot requires the Super Sling to win the Hard level, and Whack-a-Tuco requires the Smash Strike. If you don't have these two items, you can play the levels that don't require them and then come back later. You get an Idol for each Native Game you win on the Hard level. So you should expect to come back to the Native Village in the future to finish these little diversions, even though the game will NOT prompt you to do so other than noting when you've "unlocked" a particular game. (Note that while the menus show "Native Games," you have to come back to the Native Village and bang the gong to play them. I suggest you learn the shortcuts back to that area for later in the game when you're down to the last few Idols and you need to play these games to finish.)

    Once you get the Shield, the game should show you one of those animations where Harry looks at the map and talks about where to go next. You want to go back through the Butterfly Glade to the Renegade Fort. Be prepared for MEGA-frustration when you get there once you figure out how to move on to the next level!!!! (and to help you out, the next level is not the Flooded Cave.)
