WALKTHROUGH - Chapter
8: Enshrouded in Darkness
Walk up the stairs to activate a cutscene. After the
cutscene destroy the weapon rack to get an axe. There
is a chest with 10 sand credits against the back wall
to the left.
Move over to the area with no railing and wall run
on the right wall to the shutter. Leap off the shutter
to land on a ledge. Jump to the gap across from the
ledge and climb up the gap. Turn around when you reach
the top and jump to the floor with the lever. Rotate
the lever to open the door. Walk through the door and
jump to the curtain from the broken window.
While sliding down the curtain, jump to the ledge
across from it. Hang along the side of the ledge and
shimmy to the left to reach the floor beside you. Wall
run directly up the left wall to catch onto the ledge
above. While on the ledge, jump to the wall across from
you and wall jump all the way up to the railing of the
floor above. Pull yourself over the railing and fight
the two sand guards. They will see you no matter what
you do. Walk to the area without railing and wall run
on the right wall then jump to the pole across from
the wall. Swing off the first pole to the pole above
you then swing up to the plate above the second pole
and stab it. Wall run to the right to reach the next
Hang off the side of the railing closest to the next
plate and jump then stab
it. Watch the area to the right while you are hanging
off the plate. A ledge
platform will extend out of the wall and then go back
into the wall a few
seconds later. Wait for the plate to extend then wall
run to the right and
fall onto the platform. Wall run up the wooden wall
to the side and wall jump
to the plate on the wall across from the wooden wall.
While on the plate, wall
run to the right and jump to the pole across from the
wall. Stand on top of
the first pole and jump to the pole above. Swing across
to the next pole ahead
and jump to the floor with the female sand creatures.
Wait for one of them to
stop moving their swords violently and attack her. It
is much harder to fight
these female sand creatures with normal Prince so you
must take advantage of
their weakness. They will never fully stop moving, but
they will slow down and
that is when you should strike.
Look off the side of the railing and you will see a
group of three plates on the elevator shaft wall.
Hang off the railing and jump to the first plate
and stab it, then jump up the plates until you reach
the third plate. From the third plate, jump to the wall
across from you then wall jump to the switch on the
wall above (3 jumps). Immediately activate Eye of the
Storm while falling and stab the plate below. Drop and
stab the second plate then jump back to the railing.
Run through the newly opened door and drink from the
fountain at the end of the twisting hall to start the
challenge for the fifth life upgrade.
Stay on one side and wait for the slow saw blade to
move to the other side and
wait until right before the rotating spiked floor is
about to rotate inward
then jump across to the platform with the slow saw blade.
Jump up the first
three ledges as they come out of the wall then hop across
to the next two
ledges and jump across to the floor above from the second
ledge. Move fast
along these ledges! The area above has three spiked
rotators and two saw
blades on the floor. Wait for the spiked rotator on
the left wall to rotate
inward then dash across on the left. Make sure that
the left most saw blade
and the spiked wall are not going to meet at the left
end when dashing. Eye of
the Storm will help here as usual. Run up to the light
in the back to get the
upgrade. Walk back down the hall and hit the switch
on the floor to get back
to your business in this level.
Rotate the lever to open one of the doors. Break the
weapon rack for a Mace. Wall run up the right wall as
you enter through the doorway and stab the plate. Jump
to the railing of the floor above and pull yourself
up. Walk to the railing closest to the plate in the
back. Hang off the railing and jump and stab the plate.
Use landscape view to give you an idea of where to go
next. When the platform to the right extends out of
the wall, wall run to the right and land on the platform
then quickly jump to the ledge on the side wall. Move
to the right side of the ledge and jump to the wooden
wall across from you and wall jump all the way to the
railing of the floor above. When you grab onto the railing
you will notice some guards on that floor.
Move to the far right of the railing and
pull yourself up for some easy speed kills. Wall run on the right wall that the
guards were staring at and jump to pole across from
the wall. Swing to the next pole. On the second pole
swing toward the wall then wall jump to the plate and
stab it. From the plate, wall run to the right to land
on the ledge below. Walk to the right while on the ledge
and go around the corner. Jump to the railing of the
floor across from you. Regardless of what you do here,
the guard on the floor will see you. After he catches
sight of you two female sand creatures will join him
and attack you. Fight them off and hang off the side
of the railing closest to the elevator with Farah inside
and jump to it then pull yourself up for a cutscene.
You can actually jump to the elevator without fighting
the enemies if you want.
After the cutscene, female sand creatures will attack.
Attack them using either light post to the side to make
this battle much easier. When the battle is over rotate
the lever to start the moving wall above.
Move below the moving wall and wait for the wall
to move inward - at that moment wall run up either side
wall and wall jump up to the first opening above. Wall
run up the next moving wall ahead and stab the plate
on it. Wait until the wall moves outward then wall run
to the left and stab the next plate nearly covered in
greenery. Jump to the plate above it and stab it. Jump
to the side of the platform above and pull yourself
up. There is a plate on the moving wall across from
you. Wall run on the left wall as the moving wall moves
outward and stab the plate. Wait for the wall to move
outward again and wall run to the right.
You will land on another platform. Look for the
curtain on the wall out in the distance. Wall run on
the left wall and slide down the curtain. Jump off the
curtain near the bottom to land on a beam extending
out from the middle big column. Walk toward the big
column and use the ledge around it to walk around the
left side. Walk out onto the next beam and jump to the
gap across from it. Climb all the way up the gap and
turn around to see a plate across from you. Jump to
the plate and stab it. Wall run to the left then jump
off the wall to the plate across from the current wall
and stab it. On the current plate, wall run to the crevice
on the right. Move to the right along the crevice and
drop to the doorway. If you look in the back you will
see two plates on the wall to the left. Wall run on
the right wall and jump to the first plate across from
the wall. Wall run to the next plate on the right and
stab it. From the second plate, jump to the pole across
from you and swing to the next plate across from the
pole and stab it. Wait until the moving wall moves outward
then wall run on the left toward the save fountain.
Walk through the doorway and hang along the side of
the floor. Drop to the ledge below and move to the right.
Jump to the crevice above the ledge and shimmy over
to the above platform. A cutscene will activate soon.
Wall run on the wall that has the wooden shutter
that Farah just closed. Jump to the pole overlooking
a gap near the end of the wall run. Drop to the gap
and slide down.
Rotate the camera when the camera angle changes to get
both warriors on the screen at the same time. Wait until
the standing warrior turns his side to you then speed
kill the warrior below the gap. Quickly move behind
the standing warrior and speed kill him as well. Break the weapon rack to the side
for a Mace.
Move to the side of the wall that the standing warrior
was next to and wall run out to the plate and stab it.
Wait until the block in the back is about to fully
extend out of the wall then wall run to the left and
jump to the block. Before the block goes back in the
wall, jump to the pole up ahead. You can also wall run
to the pole. Stand on top of the first pole and jump
to the next pole up above. Jump up all the poles and
reach the beam at the top. Walk to the end of the beam
and jump to the root in the back. The root is just like
a pole. Swing off the root to the tall platform across
from it to activate another cutscene. Wall run on the
left wall and you will catch onto a piece of the wall
across from the tall platform you were just on. Drop
to the ledge then fall into the gap and slide down.
Please note that there are two sand gate guards
and a warrior below. Go ahead and activate landscape
view right now. Please take note that after you kill
the first sand gate guard you are going to have to hang
along the railing that is in front of the sand gate.
This is the only portion that the guards are not looking
at when they have their backs turned. Wait until the
pacing sand gate guard walks below the gap you are in.
When both of the other enemies turn their backs to the
sand gate guard, activate the speed kill. Both enemies
should turn their backs when the pacing sand gate guard
turns his back to the gap after pacing over to it. Immediately
following the speed kill on the first sand gate guard,
walk directly ahead of the sand gate and hang off the
side of the railing. For the next speed kill I would
recommend going after the warrior. Hang onto the railing
until both enemies turn their back, then hop up and
speed kill the warrior from behind. After the speed
kill hang off the side of the railing that is closest
to the warrior you just defeated. Shimmy over to the
final sand gate guard, but do not shimmy in front of
him or he will see you. Pull yourself up when he turns
his back and speed kill him. Walk up to the sand gate to receive
The Sand Storm power and be sure to grab one of the
sand gate guards' swords.
You will have
to use landscape view in order to see the guards below
Walk to the side of the railing across from the plate
on the wall up ahead. Jump to the bottom plate and stab
it, then jump to the top plate and stab it. When the
wooden wall up above extends outwards wall run to the
left and hit the wall then wall jump to the crevice
up above (2 jumps). A warrior will step out on the platform
to the side, but we'll get to him later. Jump to the
wooden wall beside you when it extends outward again
and wall jump all the way to the next crevice up above.
Shimmy to the left on the crevice and pull yourself
up on the small ledge. Jump to the crevice above and
shimmy all the way to the left until you reach a gap.
Fall into the gap and slide down it.
Unfortunately, there are no double speed
kills for warriors. Do not kill the warrior that walks
toward the railing in the back first! Kill the other
warrior for your first speed kill since he will turn
first. Wait until they meet together in the middle then
when they both turn, speed kill the warrior that walks
away last from the gap. Sneak behind the other warrior
and quickly speed kill him before he turns. Walk toward the railing and wall
run on the right wall where there is no railing. You
will land on ledge. Move to the left of the ledge then
jump to the pole across from you. The camera will switch
to show you a crevice up above. Swing to the crevice
and shimmy all the way to the right. Jump to the balcony
across from you. Walk through the doorway to find a
Walk out onto the beam and jump to the gap in the back.
I would very much recommend using Eye of the Storm to
slow down time for this portion. At the bottom you will
have to deal with some spike pillars and arrows.
Wait until the arrows are reloading then stay to
the left and dash under the first spike pillar as it
moves upward and you should be able to escape the second
spike pillars grasp as well. Use Eye of the Storm for
the three saw blades ahead and you shouldn't have any
problems. When you go through the doorway a cutscene
will start that will show you a puzzle that needs solving
in order to exit this area. There is a chest with 10
sand credits in it to the right of the platform with
the middle lever.
The objective of this puzzle is to get all three platforms
to the top at the
same time. You will need to rotate the levers on each
platform in order to
raise each one to the top. Rotating the levers will
block off certain areas
above so you will have to rotate them in a certain order.
Rotating a lever
counterclockwise will move it upward, rotating the lever
clockwise will move it
downward. You will only need to move them upward if
you use the solution
Stand in the middle of the three platforms (facing
the furthest one in the back) and press the landscape
view button. I will refer to them as middle lever, for
the one ahead of the Prince, right lever, for the one
to the right of the Prince, and left lever, for the
one to the left of the Prince at this time. Look below
for the full solution.
- To start things off, climb to the MIDDLE lever and
rotate it counterclockwise
- Drop down from the middle lever platform and rotate
the RIGHT lever
- Drop down from the right lever and rotate the LEFT
- Now we need to get back to the RIGHT lever. Drop
down from the right lever
platform and wall run to the ledge on the side of the
wall to the right of the
middle lever platform. Jump to the third ledge up above
and jump to the small
platform right beside the right lever. Jump to the platform
below and rotate
the right lever counterclockwise.
- The next lever we need to rotate is the MIDDLE lever.
Turn around from where
you currently are (right lever) and wall run to the
group of ledges you just
jumped off of. Drop down to the third ledge from the
bottom and jump to the
platform with the middle lever. Rotate the middle lever
- The final lever we need to rotate is the LEFT lever.
Wall run over to the
group of ledges to the left of the middle lever. Drop
down to the third ledge
from the bottom and jump over to the left lever platform.
Rotate the left
lever counterclockwise to solve the puzzle.
A cutscene will activate after you solve the puzzle.
Wall run back to the
group of ledges then drop down them one by one until
you reach the bottom. Run
to the figure in the distance next to the door in the
back for a cutscene.
