=========================== MEDIEVIL 1 -- LIFE BOTTLE FAQ =========================== Copyright 2002 by ChosenOne (firstname.lastname@example.org) Hi to you fellow MediEvil fanatics. Yes, I do know that this game is ages-old, but there is still something about it that still eludes many gamers, and that is how to get all the Life Bottles. In case you don't know, Life Bottles are very precious items that replenish your Life Meter should you fall into a void or perish in battle, and nothing is more rewarding than seeing all nine of them over your Life Meter, so I'll help you find them all: =========================== LIFE BOTTLE #1 The first of these is right there in the first level, Dan's Crypt, "hidden" in plain sight. From where you begin, go forward until you reach the far end of the crypt, where you should see the Life Bottle over a rock next to the exit gate. Jump onto it and collect it. LIFE BOTTLE #2 The second Life Bottle is in The Cemetery. When you reach the crossroads with the angel statue at the center, hit it three times with your sword, so that it faces the gate on the left. The angel statue will open whichever gate it is turned to. Proceed trough the pathway to the left. You should reach an open space where, among other collectable items, you will find another Life Bottle. Collect it. LIFE BOTTLE #3 After completing level 3, Cemetery Hill, with the Chalice of Souls at 100%, you should be taken to the Hall of Heroes. After listening to that old Gargoyle in the entrance chamber, talk to Canny Tim and he should give you your third Life Bottle. Collect it before leaving. LIFE BOTTLE #4 After completing level 5, Return to the Graveyard, you will be awarded with the Daring Dash ability. Go back to Dan's Crypt. You should notice that there's an off-colored block along the left wall from where you start. Charge against that part of the wall until it breaks down, giving you free access to your fourth Life Bottle and some Chests of Coins. Collect them. This can also be done with the Club or the Hammer. LIFE BOTTLE #5 In level 6, The Scarecrow Fields, go trough the whole level until you collect the Harvester Part. Now return to the barn that you found earlier and use the Harvester Part on the Harvester machine to fix it. The Harvester should start working, break down the wall and cut a pat for you trough the corn field outside the barn. Follow that path until you find the Chalice, a Chest of Coins and another Life Bottle. Collect it. LIFE BOTTLE #6 The sixth Life Bottle can be found in level 14, Pools of the Ancient Dead. Near the end of the level, you will go trough a gate that can be opened with a Chaos Rune. Further ahead, near two ominous-looking chariots, you will notice a small island along the left side of the cliff. What you need to do is to carefully line up and perform a jump in that direction to get there. Collect the Life Bottle and everything else you will find. LIFE BOTTLE #7 After completing level 16, The Gallows Gauntlet, with the Chalice of Souls at 100%, you should be taken to the Hall of Heroes. Go up the stairs to the upper level and talk to Ravenhooves, the Centaur. He should give you a Life Bottle. Collect it before leaving. LIFE BOTTLE #8 After completing level 19, The Entrance Hall, with the Chalice of Souls at 100% you should be taken to the Hall of Heroes. Go up the stairs to the upper level and talk to Dirk Steadfast. He should award you with yet another Life Bottle. Collect it before leaving. LIFE BOTTLE #9 The ninth and last Life Bottle is located in the second-to-last level of the game, The Time Device. Go to the right side of the master time clock and approach the butterfly gate. A clock dial will descend, indicating the combination you need to open this gate. Jump up onto the master time clock using those big round things on the floor that act as trampolines and step on the switches to imput the combination. Drop down and enter trough the open gate. As long as you have turned off the red electricity early on in the level, you can now collect the final Life Bottle. =========================== Well, that's it! You now have all the Life Bottles in the game and you can go on to fight Zarok and his evil minions! I don't know about you, but I just love seeing all nine Life Bottles proudly displayed over my Life Meter. Now we just have to wait for MediEvil 3... =========================== This FAQ is Copyright 2002 by ChosenOne Some of the information in this FAQ was taken from Mirrostar@aol.com's MediEvil Walktrough.
