    Number of Safes: 1
    My best percentage: N/A

    the overhead pipe and drop down to the platform below. Jump onto, then off the
    pipe, jump onto the boxes, then onto the platform. Jump to the platform on
    your right, then run-jump to the next platform. Jump up onto the overhead pipe
    and tuck your legs in so you can fit through the big pipe. Untuck as soon as

    onto the overhead pipe, go across, then drop down once you get to the
    platform. Go right, slide down the ladder, and go through the door.
    
    Run to the right, use your sticky cam once you see the camera to see where
    it's looking. When it's looking right, get under the camera. When it looks
    left go right to the wall, drop down and hang from the ledge, and shimmy to
    the other side. Go to the small chimney, drop down, and rappel all the way
    down. Once you get to the bottom, pick up the pistol ammo and shoot the target
    right in front of you. Crouch and shoot the target below it. Climb up onto the
    boxes then onto the overhead pipe, take out your pistol, and shoot the other
    target. Drop down, go left, and pick up the box of gas grenades. Drop a
    grenade in the hole with a target, then go past the hole and through the door.
    
    Pick up the box of grenades to the left of the door. Stand to the right of the
    door about two arms "width" and throw the grenade at full strength. It should
    hit the boxes and bounce past the hole, nailing the 3rd target. From the same
    place throw a grenade at strength level three. It should get the 2nd target,
    the one in the hole. Stand next to the boxes and throw a grenade at strength
    level 2. It should get the target. Go through the door once your done. Go
    right and lock pick the door to get through. Go right, unlock the safe, then

    From the starting point go right, over the crates, and down the zipline. Enter
    the door. Go right, over the boxes and the fire next to it and jump onto the
    pipe above the next fire. (Without toasting 1/4 of your health off) Climb to
    the top of the pipe and jump off going right. Jump over the fire and enter
    through the door. Run down the stairs, jump over the fire, and enter through
    the next door. Run to the left and jump onto the boxes, then onto the overhead
    pipe. Go all the way across, jump off, jump onto the first pipe, and jump onto
    each of the other pipes at the top to reach the other side. Go left and slide
    all the way down the pipe when you reach it. Go right, jump onto the pipe then
    the one overhead to get across the fire. Run all the way to the right, jumping
    over the fire and sliding down 3/4 of the pipe when you reach it. (Use the
    sticky cam to see why) Jump off to the left and enter through the door.
    
    Jump onto the overhead pipe and wait for the explosions to end before going
    across. Enter through the door. Jump onto the boxes, then the overhead pipe to
    get across the fire. Jump off to the left and RUN, yes, RUN all they way to
    the left. If you don't you'll probably get most of your health burned off, or
    end up dead when you get caught in the explosions. Enter through the door to
    complete the 1st objective.
    
    Run all the way to the left, jumping onto the overhead pipe and over the hole
    on the way. Slide all the way down the pipe and run to the boxes to your
    right. Jump onto the boxes, then onto the pipe to get across the fire. Run to
    the right so you can jump all the way to the otherside. Run to the right and
    enter the elevator shaft. Jump onto, then slide down the rope until your head
    is just above the floor you were just on. Then jump off to the right, landing
    onto the floor below. Go to the next screen. Go left, jump onto the overhead
    pipe and tuck your legs in to get across with both legs intact, and not
    burned. Jump over the fire to your left, and jump onto the pipe when you
    reach a big fire. Climb to the top, and jump left and then off the leftmost
    pipe to get back to the floor below, on the other side of the fire. Run left
    and enter through the door. Use the first-aid kit on the wall if necessary,
    then open the safe to complete the 2nd objective.
    
    Exit through the door you came in, and make your way back to the elevator
    shaft. Jump onto the rope and go as far down as you can. Jump off to the right
    in between the rope and fire. Crouch down and go under the fire to get to the
    next screen. Run left, jump over the hole in the floor and crouch down to get
    under the low ceiling. Get back up and run all the way to the door and enter
    through it. Walk down the stairs and jump onto the overhead pipe, without
    toasting your feet. Jump onto the next pipe, climb up a little bit, jump to
    the next pipe, climb a bit, then jump off to the right, onto the floor next
    to you. Walk down the stairs, jump up onto the overhead pipe, go across, and
    go through the door after jumping off the pipe. Crouch down to get past the
    low ceiling. (Don't worry the floor wont collapse until you get off) Jump up
    onto the overhead pipe and jump off when you get across. Climb to the pipe of
    the pipe to your right, then jump onto the overhead pipe. Go across and drop
    down when your over the pipe below you. Go across on this pipe, jump off, and
    run right until you get to the next pipe, which you should slide down all the
    way. Run to the left, jumping onto the pipe overhead to get past the fire,
    then enter through the door that's down the hallway a little bit. Crouch down
    to get past the low ceiling then jump onto the overhead pipe to get past the
    fire. Enter through the door. Run to your left and go through the door.
    
    You should now be outside, and about to encounter your first two guards of the
    game. Jump onto the ledge that the guard is on, and wait for him to come back.
    When he goes back to the right, climb up, walk up to him, and hit him with
    your elbow. Don't use your pistol, you need the ammo later. Use the sticky cam
    and look down and right a little bit, there should be a guard. When he goes to
    the right, run jump to his platform, walk up to him, and hit him with your
    elbow. If for some reason he hears or sees you, shoot him with your gun. Jump
    up onto the ledge above you and lock pick the door to get in. Run to the
    right. When you see a guard, pull out your pistol and shoot him. One shot is
    all it takes. Go through the door to your right and shoot another guard that
    you see. Go into the elevator to your left and shoot yet another guard in the
    back of the head. (These guards need to learn how to look in more than one
    direction) Go into the elevator, and yet again, shoot the guard in the back
    of the head. Enter through the door and figure out what to do with the next
    guard. Go right and enter through the first door you come to. Inside there's
    ammo and a medkit, which i doubt you need to use at this point. Run to the
    right, walk down the stairs, and hit him from behind to knock him out of your
    way. Enter through the door to encounter a guard that actually moves, but not
    for long as you instinctively pull out your pistol and shoot the guard. Run
    past him, enter through the door, shoot another guard, and lock pick the door
    to get in. Run all the way to the right, interact with the bookcase, and you
    just finished you first mission. Congratulations!

    My best score: 44
    Points System: Red suit=5pts.
                   Blue suit=2pts.
                   Black suit=-5pts.
    
    The red guys always appear in the same location everytime you play the game,
    so memorize their locations. You will have to get the blue guys whenever you
    can if you want to rack up a lot of points.
