==============================================================================

Hello all, and welcome to my Enemy Guide for Tomb Raider: The Prophecy.  This
is a complete guide on all of the enemies in the game.  However, it is made to
be complementary to my other guides for this game, found at www.gamefaqs.com. 
Because of this, there are no bosses here, as they can be found in my boss
guide.  If you have any input, contact me at kenbarney@optonline.net, with Tomb
Raider as the subject, and you will be given credit.  You can also use the
gamefaqs message boards.

2.00                          Enemy Statistics
==============================================================================

3.00                         Attack Strategies
==============================================================================

-------------
3.10  W O L F
-------------

Wolves are the basic enemy of this game.  They can be killed easily, and with
the same strategy almost every time.  If there is enough space, then you should
back away from the wolf, while you are shooting.  When, if, it catches up to
you, jump back, and its bite will miss.  You can then continue, unharmed.  If
space is limited, then your best bet is to shoot as you go as far back, away
from the wolf, as you can.  When it catches up, you should then jump over it,
and continue away from it.  The same thing applies if you are being attacked by
multiple wolves.

-----------------------
3.20  S K E L E T O N S
-----------------------

Skeletons are more difficult enemies to deal with then wolves are.  They have a
shield that will often times absorb your shots.  The best way to take out any
type of skeleton is to circle around it, just outside of its range, and shoot. 
If you keep shooting long enough, then it will die.  If you get tired of this,
or if there isn't enough space for you to kill them, then you can try running
up to a skeleton, then jumping over it and shooting just as your reach it. 
This will almost certainly land at least one shot on him.

-----------------------
3.30  M A G I C I A N S
-----------------------

Magicians are the most difficult enemies in the game, aside from the Great Grey
One herself (who incidentally isn't that great).  The varying types can launch
many different kinds of energy attacks at you.  They are also all capable of
raising a temporary, indestructible shield, that can absorb all of your shots,
(obviously, while else would it be indestructible).  However, all of their
attacks can be jumped over.  This makes it easy to win if you are in a one on
one battle with a magician.  All you need to do is stand in one place, and jump
whenever an attacks comes at you.  Shoot at it all of the time, except when its
shield is up, and you will win.

Attacking multiple magicians at the same time is a more difficult task.  The
best way to do this is to run away, so that you only have one magician on the
screen, and in range at one time.  When you do this, if you can, then none of
the other magicians will attack you.  Thus, you can concentrate on taking one
magician down at a time.  If you can't get any of the magicians off-screen,
then the best way for you to defeat them is to try and jump over as many
attacks as you can, and run away from any attacks that you can't jump over.

-----------------
3.40  G H O S T S
-----------------

Ghosts are the equivalent to wolves in the later levels.  They can be easily
defeated just by shooting them, and backing away.  If you can not back away
from them, then you should jump over them when you need to, and continue
shooting while backing away.  Sometimes they will appear when you are fighting
a magician.  If this happens, then you will just need to try and stay away from
it, because it is very difficult to get Lara to change targeting to the ghost
from the magician.
