    Due to the abuse of my e-mails to send me mind-blowing amounts of spam
    (as well as questions that are answered in my walkthrough), I have
    been forced to stop all my e-mails.

    3 - Walkthrough
    
    When I say certain things, they may confuse you. Here's some lingo I'll 
    use:
    
    Beam - any unusually narrow surface that you must balance on while 
    walking across
    Pole - you swing from them
    Ledge - Anything that you can walk on, inch on or hang from that isn't 
    the ground
    Cross the ____ - Traverse from the first ____ to the last ____ and all 
    the ____s in between
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    3.1 - The Beginning
    
    You'll start immediately on a balcony. Walk into the room, and a 
    cutscene will start. You'll start telling your story, and interesting 
    stuff will happen. When you regain control, go towards the soldiers 
    with a battering ram to have a projectile destroy them. Climb up the 
    rocks that form large stairs, then jump to the ledge you see. Climb up 
    more rocks, then use R to run up the wall and get onto the wall.
    
    Once the gap is created, jump across, then go to the door. Jump across 
    the gap to the right, then go through the open door. Smash the 
    obstacles in your way, then defeat the guard present in combat. Once 
    done, climb up the ladder and defeat two more guards, then go through 
    another door. Stand in the water and hold R to regain any health lost, 
    then smash more obstacles in the way.
    
    Don't cross the gap; go down and defeat the guards. Go through another 
    door and follow the hall until it ends. To cross this gap, run next to 
    the right wall and hold R once you reach the edge of the gap; you'll 
    run along the wall and over it. Run along the wall to cross the next 
    gap, then climb the ladder.
    
    Go through the door and replenish health, then defeat more guards in 
    this area. Go to the far wall, then jump up to grab the ledge. Pass 
    under the face while hanging from the ledge, then get up and onto the 
    ledge above you. Inch over to the face and pass under it, then drop to 
    the lower ledge, pass under another face, and drop to the hole in the 
    wall.
    
    Defeat more guards in here, then drink from the fountain to regain 
    health. Press A to grab onto the column near the fountain, then jump to 
    the column on the right, then to the one in front of you. Climb to the 
    top of the column, then jump to the ledge on the left and go through 
    the curtains. You'll be asked to save.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    3.2 - The Maharajah's Treasure Vaults
    
    Run along the wall to the left to the other side, then run along the 
    right wall and jump to the ledge at the end. Run along another right 
    wall, then run up the wall on the right and jump to the ledge. Pass 
    through the curtains to see the Dagger of Time. Run along the right 
    wall, then run along another right wall and jump to the ledge. 
    
    Run up a wall of the alcove to get on a ledge, but get to the left 
    ledge. Run along the wall to a ledge, then along the wall again. Go 
    through the door, then drop down and run between the spiked poles. Run 
    along the left wall to a tiny ledge; inch your way to the end, then 
    jump to the ledge on the other side. Do the same again, and avoid the 
    spiked poles at the end. Run along the left wall, then jump off to a 
    ledge.
    
    Here, drop down to the bottom ledge, then make your way right, jumping 
    up and down ledges accordingly. At the end, jump to the column, then 
    continue across columns to the last one. Slide to the bottom and jump 
    off, then drink from the fountain to replenish health. Run up the wall, 
    then run up the low part of the statue's arm. Run up the right wall and 
    jump to the hand, then run up the left wall. Run up the statue's head, 
    then jump from wall to wall until you reach the top - and the Dagger of 
    Time.
    
    You'll discover your rewind abilities here. Jump to the ledge in front 
    of you, then run along the left wall and jump to the ledge, then run 
    along another wall and jump again. Navigate through the three spiked 
    poles. When the five poles back away, run up and duck into the alcove; 
    when they pass again, run past them and drop down. Pass through more 
    spiked poles, then climb up to the next room.
    
    A long cutscene will occur, and you'll release the Sands of Time, which 
    will take over the kingdom. You'll enter your first sand battle. After 
    you knock an enemy to the floor, press Y to absorb the sand it has. For 
    this battle, vaulting over enemies works well. Once you're done, you'll 
    enter the pillar of orange sand to see into the future - and save your 
    game.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    3.3 - "You Have Unleashed the Sands of Time"
    
    Go through the hole to the right of the gate in front of you, then 
    follow the girl until the rocks fall. Go through the door to the right, 
    then run along the wall to drop down to the other stairs. Press Y next 
    to the sand cloud under the stairs to absorb it, then go right and 
    stand under the low pole. Press A to jump up to it, then hold R to 
    swing. Press A at the right time to jump to the next pole. Cross all 
    the poles this way until you get to the ledge.
    
    Run along the wall to a ledge, then run along the wall and jump to a 
    pole, then jump to another ledge. Go through the door and chase after 
    the girl to meet more rocks. To the left, run along the right wall to a 
    pole, then swing across the poles (move left or right when necessary) 
    to the other end of the hall. Drink from the fountain if necessary, 
    then go through the next door.
    
    Run along the wall to the pole, then swing across the poles to the 
    other side. Run along the wall to another pole, then drop down all the 
    poles to the floor. Defeat all the enemies here (again, vaulting works 
    well).
    
    Look for the low pole in the corner. Run up the wall, then jump to the 
    pole. Turn around, then jump to the wall, then press A when you hit the 
    wall to jump off to a higher pole. Turn around again and jump to the 
    ledge, then jump into the hole and enter the save point to see your 
    next vision.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    3.4 - "Had I Really Seen Her?"
    
    Run to the door and smash the obstacles in the way, then run to the 
    sand cloud and absorb it. Go the other way, through a door and run up a 
    wall, then jump to the pole. Swing and jump to the ledge, then drop 
    down to a hole in the wall. Follow the straight path to the fountain; 
    you'll drink from it, then reappear outside the hole, and your health 
    bar will increase.
    
    Jump down to the lower rubble and get to the floor, then cross the gap 
    and get the sand cloud. Drop into the gap, then run along to meet the 
    girl, who turns out to be the princess of the land, Farah. You'll 
    argue, and she'll go through a crack in the wall. For now, defeat the 
    bugs, then replenish health if necessary. Go to the end of the hall and 
    take the left door to find a sand cloud, then go back through the other 
    door.
    
    Jump to the ledge, then go through the door outside. Run along the wall 
    and go through the door back inside. Get on the column, then jump 
    across the columns until you get to the one near the ledge. Jump off 
    and onto the ledge, then run along the wall and jump to another column. 
    Slide to the bottom and defeat the bugs, then get the sand cloud.
    
    Run along the wall and jump to a column, then cross the columns to the 
    ledge. Climb up the rubble (run up the higher rock), then run up the 
    right wall and jump to the ledge. Get the sand cloud, then cross the 
    columns to another ledge. Hang from the edge and inch over to the wall, 
    then drop to another ledge and defeat more bugs.
    
    Run along the wall to a pole, then cross the poles to the other side. 
    Defeat more bugs, then jump over the side of the railing to the column 
    and slide down to the floor. Defeat all the enemies, then enter the 
    save point to see another vision.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    3.5 - A Secret Passage
    
    Go and grab the sand cloud in a corner, then go to the save point and 
    move the bookcase to its right aside to reveal a door. Go down the 
    stairs, then run along the left wall and jump to the ledge. Grab the 
    sand cloud, then step on the switch to open the door. Approach the 
    bridge and it will fall away; run along the wall you see, then jump to 
    the other end of the bridge. Take the box in front of you and pull it 
    onto the switch, then go through the door.
    
    Pull out the lever in this room, then run across the bridge and jump to 
    the platform. Meet the Guy That Won't Shut Up. He'll explain how to 
    activate the defense system. First, step on the switch to bring out the 
    first axle, then turn the thing 90 degrees clockwise. Raise the whole 
    thing one level, then turn it 270 degrees counterclockwise. Bring it 
    down one level and pick up the second axle.
    
    Bring it back up a level, then turn it 180 degrees clockwise. Take it 
    up two levels, then hit the switch for the third axle. Turn it 90 
    degrees clockwise, then bring it down a level and get the last axle. 
    Bring it back up a level, then turn it all 90 degrees counterclockwise, 
    then bring it up one more level. Cross the bridge and climb the ladder, 
    then press A under the level to pull it. Go back down and defeat the 
    enemies, then go through the door and enter the save point.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    3.6 - The Palace's Defense System
    
    Continue on past the spiked pole. See the parts of the floor with 
    holes? Walk slowly over them or else you'll be shish kebob. Make your 
    way to the other end of the room, then pull out the lever. Run up the 
    stairs and between the spiked poles, then run along the wall to a 
    ledge. Climb up and go to the other end, then jump to the other ledge 
    and hang down to avoid the saw. Go to the other end and jump to the 
    ledge.
    
    Continue, then run along the wall to another ledge. When the saws are 
    about to strike, jump to the other ledge, then back when it is safe. At 
    the end, drop down and go through the door. Defeat more enemies in this 
    room, then enter the save point.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    3.7 - A Booby-Trapped Courtyard
    
    Replenish your health at the fountain if necessary, then find the 
    switch on the wall; run up the wall to hit it. Run up the new pillar in 
    the center of the room, then jump up to the pole and swing to the 
    ledge. Jump to the small ledge sticking out to find automatic slicers. 
    You can either run past them or roll underneath them; I prefer the 
    latter. After avoiding one, run along the left wall and jump to the 
    ledge. Avoid the poles and the slicer here, then jump to the pole to 
    open the door; swing to the door and go through.
    
    Climb on the piece of rubble, then run along the wall and jump to the 
    ladder. Climb up, then cross the gap, then jump across another gap 
    diagonally. Get the sand cloud in the corner, then get on the rubble 
    and run along the wall to the ledge. Get up and go to the other end, 
    then follow the long path to the magic fountain, where you'll extend 
    your life bar.
    
    Back here, run along the wall to a pole, then cross the poles to a 
    ledge. Get on the other end of the ledge, then jump to solid ground. 
    Run along the wall, timing it so you don't hit the saw, then jump to a 
    ledge at the end. Run up the wall to a ledge, then inch to the other 
    end. Jump to a pole, then swing to the ledge in front of you. Run along 
    the wall again, then again, and jump to a ledge the second time. 
    Replenish health if necessary, then continue and run along the wall to 
    a switch; head back and go through the door.
    
    Pull out the lever to open the door and start the traps. Run along the 
    left wall, avoiding the saw, then go past the slicer. Run up the left 
    wall to hit a switch, then jump to the new ledge. Run up again to a 
    smaller ledge, then jump up to another ledge. Jump across to another 
    ledge, then jump up two more. Go to the other end and jump back onto 
    terra firma. Run along the right wall when the time is right, then roll 
    under the door. You'll see Farah fighting off demons, one of which used 
    to be your father!
    
    This is quite a difficult battle. First of all, you have to make sure 
    Farah doesn't die as well as yourself. Secondly, the blue enemies are 
    immune to vaulting; you'll have to use a wall attack. Get next to a 
    wall, then push the control stick in the direction of the wall, then 
    press A, then B quickly; you'll plow through the enemy, knocking them 
    down. For future reference, blue enemies and armor-clad ones are immune 
    to vaulting. Thirdly, there are simply too many enemies. If you need 
    health, there's water at the end of the room. To defeat your father, 
    wait with your guard up until he attacks, then slice away. It's 
    tedious, but you'll win. Once you're done, you'll enter the save point.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    3.8 - Death of a Sand King
    
    You've finally partnered up with Farah. You'll jump out a window; get 
    health from the fountain if you want, then go to the other end of the 
    ledge. Run along the wall to a ledge, then again. Run along the wall 
    again to ground, then defeat all of the enemies. Get some health, then 
    enter the save point.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    3.9 - "I'll Try To Find a Way In"
    
    Go up the stairs and right to get a sand cloud, then run past the door 
    and run along the wall; you'll fall to a green thing. Run along the 
    wall to another one, then run along to a pole. Cross the poles to 
    another green thing (ugh, I forgot what those are called), then turn 
    around and run along the wall to another ledge. Run along the wall 
    again and turn the switch clockwise a bunch until the door opens. Drop 
    down and go back to grab a sand cloud, then you'll probably be fighting 
    enemies. Once done, go through the door and enter the save point.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    3.A - Climbing the Tower
    
    Climb up the rubble in here and run up the wall to a ledge. Inch to the 
    right, then jump to a pole and cross the poles to a wall; jump off the 
    wall, then cross more poles to another floor. There's a fountain here 
    if you need health; otherwise, run along the wall past the saw to a 
    path leading to the magic fountain; life ahoy.
    
    Go back to the ladder and climb it, then run toward the saws and along 
    the wall when the floor falls away. Do the same with the next saws; 
    you'll hit a switch opening the door. Run along one more wall and go 
    through the door. Continue here and run along a wall past the spikes, 
    then go down the stairs and hit the switch to let Farah in. Go back up 
    the stairs and toward the door; Faraf will inch through the crack and 
    open the door for you. Continue on to the next room.
    
    Run down the ramp and jump to the platform; avoid the jaws of doom and 
    run up the wall, then jump to the lever to move the ramps. Farah will 
    pull a lever moving them again; go up the new ramp and through the 
    door; pull out the lever, then run along the path, avoiding spikes and 
    poles, and go through the door. Yep, you're here again. 
    
    Go forward to the entrance to the room again, then down a new ramp, and 
    then another. Run along the wall to the platform, then run along the 
    wall to another ramp. Pull the lever, and Farah will pull one as well. 
    You'll alternate pulling levers until you're on the same center 
    platform. 
    
    Go down and defeat all of the enemies, then replenish health. Step on 
    the switch that raises the lower pillar, then go to the mound of boxes 
    nearby. Go behind it and pull out a box, then put it on the switch. Go 
    to the other side of the room and run up the mound of boxes with the 
    white box on top. Push the box off, then onto the next switch. Run back 
    up to the platform Farah is on, then enter the save point.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    3.B - The Warehouse
    
    Run up the pillar on this platform, then run up and hit the switch to 
    open the door. Go through to the hall, then cross the gap, then 
    continue and cross another gap. You'll end up outside in the menagerie. 
    Grab a sand cloud on the side of the stairs, then go forward and defeat 
    all of the enemies, then enter the save point.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    3.C - The Sultan's Zoo
    
    Run up the rock near the save point, then climb onto the tree as if it 
    were a column. Climb up and jump to the higher area, then drop down to 
    a lower area. Jump to a tree branch, then swing to the wall. Drop down 
    and hit the switch to open the door for Farah. Defeat all of the birds 
    here (there's five), then go through the door and pull the box out to 
    reveal a crack. Farah will go through and open the door to the bird 
    cage for you.
    
    Go into the bird cage and jump up to the low pole, then jump to the 
    wall and off to another pole. Cross the poles to a ledge; run along the 
    wall toward the right, then jump up to a pole and cross the poles to a 
    ledge. Run around and climb the ladder, then run along the wall to the 
    left twice to grab a pole. Inch to the other end and swing to the 
    ledge, then jump to the ledge outside. Run up the wall and jump to the 
    tree branch, then swing to the top of the cage. Turn the lever until 
    the door opens, then jump to the ledge with the save point.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    3.D - Atop a Bird Cage
    
    Drop down to the lower ledge, then hang from the edge and drop to the 
    pole (you have to be on the end of the ledge before dropping). Cross 
    the poles to the door, then run past and run up the wall, then jump to 
    the lever to let Farah up. Go back through the door and continue to the 
    room with bugs. Defeat them all, then climb up to the higher ledge. Run 
    along the wall, then jump to the lever to open the door.
    
    Climb up and get the sand cloud, then pull out the box to reveal a 
    crack; Farah will go through and open the door outside and below the 
    room. Destroy the obstacles and pull out the lever, then run down the 
    ramp and past all the slicers. Jump across the spike pit, then run 
    along the wall past the saws and walk across the spikes, then roll 
    under the door. Jump across the bridge and enter the save point.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    3.E - Cliffs and Waterfall
    
    Jump back across the bridge and run along the wall to the ledge with 
    the tree. Climb up the tree and jump to another tree, then jump to the 
    ledge. Defeat the birds, then run along the wall to the tiny ledge. 
    Jump to the tree, then slide down and grab the sand cloud. Get back on 
    the tree and jump onto two more trees, then climb to the top of the 
    tree and jump to the ledge. Defeat the birds, then replenish your 
    health.
    
    Inch along the small ledge, then drop down and jump across the bridge. 
    Turn the lever until the door opens, then go out toward the trees. Run 
    along the wall and jump to the first tree, then slide down and jump to 
    the second, then slide down and jump to the ledge. Run toward the door, 
    then run along the wall to the door and go through.
    
    Defeat the bugs in here, then go on and defeat more bugs. Replenish 
    health with the fountain if necessary, then continue to the hole in the 
    wall. Go in and defeat all of the enemies, then go to the other side of 
    the room, replenish health, and enter the save point.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    3.F - The Baths
    
    Go up the stairs to the switch, then pull out a vase and put it on the

    Approach the statue and the switches; Farah should stand on the 
    underwater switch. Push the statue into one switch, then run up the 
    wall to hit the other. Go through the newly opened door and grab the 
    sand cloud, then turn the lever until the water drains. Go back to the 
    room entrance, then go left and find the ledge. Run up the wall to the

    more wall-running. As you inch along the ledge at the end, swipe at the 
    bats to keep from falling.
    
    When the ledge falls away, climb to the higher one, then cross the 
    icicle as if it was a column that fell if you stayed on too long. More

    eventually enter and open the door for you. Go through, then turn the 
    lever until another door opens; go through, then follow the hall to a 
    mirror. Turn it so it points into the room, then go into the room and 
    defeat all of the enemies; this is a difficult battle, as your main 
    concern will not be your life, but Farah's. Enter the save point.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    3.T - The Hall of Learning
    
    This room is truly awful, especially without a walkthrough. If you 
    turned the first mirror, a beam of light will be shining. Follow it to 
    a mirror, and pull the mirror out so it points into another half-room. 
    Pull the mirror in there so the light hits it, then pull it so the 
    light goes across the room to the other side. Pull the mirror there so 
    the light hits it, then move it so it strikes the weak wall. Break the 
    wall, then pull the mirror so the light hits it, then pull it out until 
    it hits the switch.
    
    Go to the center of the room and run up the pillar, then do it again. 
    Inch along the ledge, then jump to the narrow beam. Follow it to the 
    end, then jump to the platform, then run along the wall to the ledge. 
    Go to the end, then jump to the pole, then cross the poles to the 
    ledge. Farah will pull a lever revealing a switch. Run up the wall to 
    hit a switch, then jump to the newly open wall, then jump up until 
    you're on it. Run along the wall to a higher platform, then run along 
    the wall again, then jump to the ladder, then climb to the top.
    
    Grab the sand cloud, then run up the wall when the jaws recede. Jump to 
    the beam, then walk along, then jump to the next beam, then drop to the 
    ledge. Run along the wall, avoiding the saws, to the other side; break 
    the wall and follow the path to the magic fountain and more life. Back 
    out, run along the wall again. Walk along the beam, jumping the gap, to 
    the mirror, then turn the mirror 90 degrees clockwise. Turn right and 
    walk along the beam, then jump to the ledge.
    
    Jump up to the pole, then swing to the wall and jump off to the next 
    pole. Move all the way to the right, then swing to the beam. Jump to 
    another beam twice, then drop down and kill bats. Go to the beam of 
    light, then pull the nearby mirror into it, then have it point the 
    light at the end of the ledge. Take the other mirror and move it so the 
    light hits the crystal, pointing it down.
    
    Run along the nearby wall to a ledge, then drop down twice. Go to the 
    other side of the ledge, then jump to the pillar. Run along the wall to 
    the mirror, then point the mirror at the symbol to move platforms. 
    Cross them to the other side, then go toward the end of the ledge. The 
    camera will focus on a broken pillar; run up the side and grab the 
    ledge, then move to the other side, then jump to the rope. Swing to the 
    other rope, then to the ledge.
    
    Cross the ledges until you can jump to the ladder; do so. Climb up, 
    then break the three walls, then pull the lever. Go back across the 
    platforms and push the nearby mirror into the corner, replacing it with 
    the farther mirror. Go back to the mirror on the other side of the 
    platforms and pull it so the light strikes it, then point it to another 
    crystal, which will open the gate to the new sword.
    
    Go back to the ground floor and go through the gate to get your sword, 
    then pull out the lever and go through the door on the other side of 
    the room. Follow the path to some enemies; defeat them, then enter the 
    save point.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    3.U - Observatory
    
    Go back to the top of the stairs and Farah will push a switch, raising 
    them. Jump to the ledge, then run along the right wall to a pole, then 
    cross the poles to a rotating lever. Turn it until the large bar is 
    lined up with the others, then cross all the poles, and the column, to 
    the other side. Turn this new lever until the bar points toward the far 
    wall, then cross back to the column and take the new path; you'll end 
    up pulling a lever and switching all the planets around.
    
    Jump off and hit the switch, then run along the wall to the left until 
    you get to the rotating lever. Cross all of the poles to end on a 
    lever, opening the gate. Drop down and slide down the ropes as if they 
    were columns to the bottom, then go through the gate. Go along the 
    corridor here, ducking under swords and jumping the gap after the log 
    has passed.
    
    Walk slowly across the spikes here, then hit the switch after the 
    swords pass, then go through the gate. Pull out the lever here, then 
    duck under swords until you get past the gate. Defeat all of the 
    enemies in here, then enter the save point.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    defeating the birds. At the end, jump to the rope, then swing to the 
    beam. Walk to the other end, then jump to the pole, then swing to the 
    ledge. Run along the wall to a beam, then jump to a pole, then swing to 
    the ledge and climb up.
    
    Defeat the birds, then run along the wall to a beam, then jump to the 
    rope. Cross the ropes to the ledge, then run along the wall to the much 
    lower ledge below. Drop down to the sort-of wall, then go to the lever 
    and turn it until the gate opens. Turn around and go to the gate; cross 
    the spikes by hanging over the edge to the right and inching along.
    
    Go to the left, then run along the wall to the lower ground. Go down 
    the stairs, avoiding the slicers, then defeat the bugs and grab the 
    sand cloud. Continue along the path, then try to ignore the bugs you 
    encounter and just cross the spikes by running along the wall. Make 
    sure Farah gets across, she fell and died on me once.
    
    Continue outside, and Farah will point out the Tower of Dawn. Defeat 
    all of the enemies, then enter the save point.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    3.W - On the Ramparts
    
    Go to the gate, then hang over the ledge to the left and jump to the 
    pole. Swing to the beam, then walk over to the other beam, then jump 
    toward the gate. Head toward the sand cloud, and you'll fall into a 
    dungeon. You'll wake up later and discard your shirt, I don't know why.
    
    Climb down the ladder, then run along the wall over the switch to open 
    up a platform. Continue until you hit the elevator, then go down and do 
    it again. On this level, when you run over the switch, jump to the 
    platform. Continue to the end, then jump to the pole, then to the 
    ladder. On this last level, when you hit the switch, you'll jump to a 
    pole, then swing to a platform. Continue to the last ladder, then slide 
    down and defeat all of the enemies. Enter the save point.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    3.X - A Prisoner Seeking an Escape
    
    Replenish your health at the fountain on the other side of the room, 
    then go back and find the box with bones in it. Pull the box onto the 
    switch at the end of the room, then go through the open gate. Duck 
    under the swords when they pass, then run up the wall to hit a switch, 
    then go through the gate.
    
    Pull out both levers in this room, then jump up the walls to the top of 
    them, then run up the wall and jump to the beam. Kill the bats, then 
    walk to the end of the beam and jump to the lower one. Here, jump to a 
    switch, then jump back, then do the same with the other switch. Jump up 
    the walls to the top, then run up the wall to the pole, then swing and 
    jump off the wall to a higher pole. From the pole, jump to the beam, 
    then walk to the end and jump to another pole; then, swing to the ledge 
    and grab the sand cloud.
    
    Run up the wall to hit the switch, then jump to the new platform. 
    Continue this until you get to the beam, then jump from the beam to the 
    ladder and climb up to the top. Jump to the pole, then to another 
    ladder; repeat, then climb the last ladder out of the dungeon. Defeat 
    all of the enemies (it's good to see Farah learned to defend herself), 
    then enter the save point.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    3.Y - "At Last We're Here!"
    
    Go up the stairs and replenish your health, then go further up to get a 
    sand cloud. Go back down and hit the switch, then go down the right 
    staircase and run up the new pillar. Run along the wall to the ledge 
    and run up to hit the switch, then scamper to the other pillar, run up 
    and run along the wall to another ledge, this one holding a block. Push 
    it off and place it under the orange switch, then climb up and run up 
    to the switch.
    
    Run through the gate and grab the sand cloud, then run across the 
    bridge, defeating the birds. Grab another sand cloud behind the door, 
    then go on and break the weak wall to find the last entrance to the 
    magic fountain. After that, continue to the room, and it will rise. You 
    will then begin the most difficult battle in the game. You WILL be 
    using Mega-Freeze at least once, maybe twice. Make sure Farah stays 
    alive, and use wall attacks frequently.
    
    Once you're done, run up the wall and pull the lever, then get on the 
    platform to go up. Enter the save point.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    3.Z - The Hourglass
    
    Go up the winding slope, then climb onto the ledge. Continue, running 
    along the wall from ledge to ledge, until the camera angle changes, 
    then run to the window and jump to the pole, then jump to the 
    hourglass. In a cutscene, you'll hesitate to save the world, and Jaffar 
    will send you away. There will be talking in darkness for a while, then 
    you'll wake up.
    
    Follow the reeeeeeally long staircase, then you'll come to a room with 
    many, many doors. Go in front of each door and listen for water 
    splashing, then enter the door with that sound. Continue this until you 
    find Farah. An...interesting cutscene will occur, and you'll wake up 
    without your weaponry.
    
    Go past the enemies to a room with light and mirrors. Keep that first 
    mirror as it is, but take the mirror to the left and put it in the way 
    so it strikes a pillar on the other side of the room. The light should 
    now be pointing back toward the entrance (or to the left if it, 
    anyway). Go to the other side and grab the mirror to the right and put 
    it in the way, then grab the last mirror and place it so the light 
    strikes the symbol on the pedestal. Go up and grab the ultimate sword, 
    the one that obliterates enemies. Go back to the room before and defeat 
    the enemies, then save.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    3.! - The Tomb
    
    Return to the mirror room and destroy the door with your sword. Run

    3.% - Honor and Glory
    
    A scene will take place between you and Jaffar. He'll offer to give you 
    power, but you insert the dagger into the hourglass and do the mega-
    rewind. You'll end up back at the beginning, then you'll go to Farah 
    and tell her everything. Jaffar will then come, and you'll fight.
    
    Jaffar will make copies of himself for you to fight. Keep your guard up 
    until he strikes, then strike him. He'll block most of the time, so 
    experiment with your swipes. What I found more effective is slicing 
    right before he attacks. After you defeat three copies, go up to the 
    real Jaffar and slice him. Another short scene will take place. Swipe 
    away at Jaffar to kill him.
    
    Jaffar is dead, and you've beaten the game. Congratulations!

    4 - Frequently Asked Questions
    
    Q: How do I unlock the original Prince of Persia?
    A: In Above the Baths (section 3.H), soon after you get the new sword, 
    you'll come to a lever you have to turn. Instead of turning it 90 
    degrees clockwise, turn it 180 degrees and destroy the wall it points 
    to. This will unlock the game; if you go through, you can start playing 
    right away; you'll save, and will restart from that point next time.
    
    Q: How do I play the first Prince of Persia I level in 3D?
    A: Plug a controller into slot 1 and slot 4 of your Gamecube. At the 
    Main Menu, start a new game; hold down B on the controller in slot 4, 
    then, on the slot 1 controller, hit A B Y X Y A B X at a moderately 
    fast pace. You'll be taken to the level. Keep in mind you can't beat it 
    per se; at the end, there's a room with a large picture of the 
    development team.
    
    Q: In the observatory, Farah won't raise the stairs! What do I do?
    A: This is a glitch in the game, and happens very rarely. Try 
    restarting. If that doesn't work, try restarting from an earlier save. 
    If that doesn't work, I'd hate to be you, because you'll probably be 
    starting over from the beginning.
