    @ II. Introduction @
    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
    
    We didn't thinking making a walkthrough for this would be worthwhile since
    this game is pretty linear so we thought we would make a FAQ to help with
    some of the puzzles in the games plus various tips for other parts of the
    game. I think it is pretty self explanitory. It's to help those people
    getting stuck in certain parts of the game. We tried to list as many places
    as we thought people might get stuck at the most or have hard time with.
    This one was a bit easier to explain then with Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy
    Walkthrough. We hope this helps everyone and we hope you enjoy the game as
    much as we did.
    
    There probably won't be anymore updates unless there is a major error or
    we forgot to mention something.

    This is for after you go down the loooooooooooong spiral walkway when looking
    for Farah.
    
    The room that you come to at the end has many doors here. 
    
    (Note: You can either follow my diagram or listen carefully when you are near
    the correct door you will hear water dripping/spilling on the floor. If you
    go into the incorrect door it will make you start over.)

    ####################################################
    # 1. Tips for when you can't see where to go next: #
    ####################################################
    
    1. Pay close attention to what the camera shows you.
    
    2. Pay close attention to the path the camera takes at times.
    
    3. Pay close attention to your visions they give you clues of what to do
    next.
    
    ##########################################################################
    # 2. Tips for when you battle your demon/monster father and his minions: #
    ##########################################################################
    
    1. For red monsters use a vaulting attack on them.
    
    2. For blue monsters use anything to rebound off of to attack them.
    
    (Note: If a monster is bent over you can either attack or vault over them to
    knock them down on the ground so you can use your dagger on them.)
    
    3. They respawn a lot just keep killing them they eventually stop
    respawning.
    
    4. Defeat all other monsters before attempting to kill your father.
    
    5. Use Vaulting attacks on your father.
    
    ######################################################
    # 3. Tips for when you battle birds at the waterfall #
    ######################################################
    
                         ------        ------ <---  Waterfall
                            U I             U = Where you should stand when you
                                                are at the waterfall with the
                                                birds.
                                            I = Cliff
    
    1. Stay as close to the corner as you can when they swoop in they have a
    harder time backing up when they are next to the cliff.
    
    2. When the lunge at you if you time it just right you can slash them.
    
    3. Block their attack and then slash them.
    
    ######################################################
    # 4. Tip for when you battle birds at the big bridge #
    ######################################################
    
    1. Just run past them and go where Farah is instead of trying to fight them.
    
    2. Use the collapsed part of bridge to get down after you find out the gate
    is broken. To get you started drop down from the edge then shimmy to the
    right and jump to pipe. The floor will collapse at the lower part of your
    climb somewhat of a bad camera view go to your left and run up the box/crate
    looking thing and jump to the pole.
    
    ############################################
    # 5. Tips for getting Prince of Persia 1 : #
    ############################################
    
    1. After you get your first new sword and cross the giant cavern. There is
    a lever you must move in front of a silver/white symbolled gate. Before
    moving that lever break the wall that is to the right of the symbolled door
    between the two pillars. You have revealed a gate move the lever to point at
    this gate to open it and go through it. You can now play Prince of Persia 1.
    
    
    #####################################################
    # 6. Tips for when you battle on the big elevator. #
    #####################################################
    
    1. Protect Farah at all cost.
    
    2. Heal when possible if needed from the two water sources on the sides of
    it.
    
    3. For brown monsters use a vaulting attack on them it work best for me.
    
    4. For blue monsters monsters use anything to rebound off of to attack them.
    
    ###############################################
    # 7. Tips for when you battle the Last Boss : #
    ###############################################
    
    1. Not much strategy needed he's pretty simple use alot of vaulting attacks
    on his clones.
    
    
    ###############################################
    # 8. Tips for Upwards/Downward Wall Jumping : #
    ###############################################
    
    The Main tip is practice makes perfect and the second tip is you need to
    push Jump (X) when you feel the Prince touch the wall. When the Prince
    touches the wall the controller will very slightly vibrate from it. When you
    feel that you need to push the Jump (X) button. When you are doing a downward
    wall jump the same applies the only difference is the timing of the jump due
    to the farther gap between the walls.
    
    #######################
    # 9. Extra Note/Tip : #
    #######################
    
    Most amusing/annoying part of the game for me was:
    
    Farah : I'll cover you.
    Prince: Please don't you might hit me.
    <Prince gets hit in the back with an arrow>
    Prince: Owww!
    Farah : Oops, sorry!
    
    Tip: To avoid this even though this is not always possible but when you have
    less enemies around you listen for Farah pulling back the bow string and
    move out of the way of any nearby enemies that she might be aiming for.
