    About Me:
    ~~~~~~~~~
    
    Hello, everyone. My name is David DeGregorio and I am a sophomore in 
    college. I have just recently decided to start writing FAQ's for my 
    favorite games. This is my seventh FAQ to date. If you would like to 
    read any of my other FAQs, just click on my username on the previous 
    page and you will see all of my FAQs.
    
    Prince Of Persia: The Two Thrones was an amazing sequel in many 
    regards. It fixed many of the problems of the first two games while 
    still retaining the same great graphics and platforming. After my last 
    guide on Warrior Within, The Two Thrones is a perfect candidate for a 
    new FAQ.
    
    I have done my best to make sure there are no errors in the FAQ. If you 
    find any, let me know and I will update as soon as I possibly can (and 
    I'm not busy usually so it won't take long). Also, if you have any 
    questions, comments, concerns, etc. just email me and I will email 
    back. I check my email every day. Thank you. Now let's get this FAQ 
    underway.
    
    ~~~~~~~~~
    Spoilers:
    ~~~~~~~~~
    
    As usual, I will refrain from using spoilers in this guide. I don't 
    believe in spoilers. They ruin the story for you, the gamer, and take 
    away from the experience. So, yeah, no spoilers will be included in any 
    of my guides. If you see something that looks like a spoiler, please 
    let me know and I will edit that part or take it out completely. Thank 
    you.
    
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Getting Started:
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    First of all, you will need a copy of The Two Thrones. This guide is 
    for the PS2 version of the game. Buy it, rent it, or borrow it from a 
    friend if you have to, however you will need the game to use this 
    guide.
    
    Pop the disc into your PS2 and you're ready to go. You are in control 
    of the Prince of Persia. He has gotten stronger and gained some new 
    moves since the last game.

    Walkthrough:

       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
       Arriving At Babylon's Shore:
       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    After the opening scene, you gain control of the Prince. This first 
    part is essentially a tutorial on how to control the Prince. Walk 
    forward and press x to roll through the small opening. In the next area 
    there is fire blocking your path. Turn right and walk around the fire.
    
    Turn left and walk until you reach a dead end. Turn left and press X to 
    jump up and grab the box. Pull yourself up and turn left again. Walk 
    forward and jump the gap. Jump the next gap and turn left. Jump the 
    next gap and turn left once more time.
    
    Run along the wall to reach the next platform. Turn right and run up 
    the wall to grab a groove in the wall. Shimmy to the left and turn the 
    corner. When you can't go any further press circle to drop down to the 
    platform beneath you. Turn left and drop down to the platform below. 
    There should be a ladder in front of you. Slide down the ladder and 
    walk forward.
    
    Turn right and enter the next room. Walk forward and climb the column 
    as far as it lets you. At this point, the camera angle will change and 
    you will see another column. Jump to that column and climb as far as 
    you can. Jump back to the first column and climb to the top. Look to 
    your left and you will see a platform that you can jump to. Jump to the 
    platform and turn right.
    
    Walk forward and climb up to the next level. Turn right and push 
    against the railing to jump over and hang from it. Jump to the column 
    behind you and climb to the top. Jump to the groove in the wall and 
    shimmy to the right. Drop down to the platform below.
    
    Turn around and run along the wall to reach a small ledge. Jump up and 
    grab the groove in the wall. Shimmy to the left and pull yourself up. 
    Jump down and save your game at the fountain.
    
       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
       The Ramparts:
       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Turn left and run down the ramp. Follow the path to the right and climb 
    the ladder. Turn right and walk into the house. You will finally 
    receive a weapon, although it is only a fisherman's knife. After the 
    scene, you will be prompted to make a speed kill. A speed kill is 
    basically when you kill an enemy stealthily, without alerting other 
    guards.
    
    Press triangle to initiate a speed kill and press the onscreen buttons 
    to kill the enemy. After you kill the first soldier, turn right and 
    hang off the railing. Jump to the column behind you and slide down to 
    the lower level. Kill the next guard and walk forward.
    
    Turn right and jump the gap. Jump up and grab the groove in the wall. 
    Shimmy to the right as far as you can and pull yourself up. Jump up and 
    grab the groove above. Shimmy to right until you can't go any further. 
    Drop down to the ledge below and sidestep right as far as you can.
    
    Jump to the platform on the right and slide down the ladder. Kill the 
    next guard and take his weapon. Follow the path around and run down the 
    ramp. Drop down to the level below and take out the next guard. Walk 
    forward and turn right. Walk through the archway and follow the path as 
    it curves to the right.
    
    Run along the left wall and jump at the end to reach a small ledge. 
    Pull yourself up and shimmy left. Jump to the ledge above and shimmy to 
    the left. Pull yourself up and turn left. Climb the long ladder to the 
    top. Walk forward and run up the wall in front of you. Go through the 
    window and drop down to the platform.
    
    Watch the scene and turn left. Run along the wall until you reach the 
    curtain. The Prince will automatically slide down it. Turn around and 
    walk forward. The door from the scene is locked, so we will have to 
    take the long way around. Continue forward and kill the guards here. 
    Blocking helps if you are on higher difficulties.
    
    When they are dead, continue forward and turn left into another room. 
    Climb the ladder to the top and jump to the ladder behind you. Tilt the 
    analog stick left or right to flip around to the other side of the 
    ladder. Climb to the top of the ladder.
    
    Turn right and run up the wall. At the peak of your run, jump to the 
    ledge behind you. Shimmy to the left until you are lined up with the 
    ladder on the right. Jump to the ladder and climb to the top. Walk 
    forward and drop down to the platform below. Turn left and walk 
    forward.
    
    When you get to the wall, walk to the left side and jump up. You will 
    grab a small ledge. Pull yourself up and jump to the top of the wall. 
    Run along the wall to reach another ledge. Drop down and kill the 
    archer. Walk forward and slide down the ladder.
    
    Walk forward and kill the guard. There is another archer further down 
    the hallway. Take it out and turn left. Go through the doorway and walk 
    forward. Climb the ladder and drop down to the next area. Save your 
    game at the fountain.
    
       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
       The Harbor District:
       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Turn left and walk across the wooden walkway. Run along the left wall 
    and jump to the next walkway. Walk to the end of the walkway and move 
    close to the wall. You should be able to sidle onto the small ledge 
    here. Shimmy to the right until you are blocked by the wall, then press 
    circle to hang from the ledge. Shimmy to the right and turn the corner. 
    Shimmy to the right some more until you can pull yourself up again.
    
    Shimmy to the right until you reach the next platform. Turn right and 
    walk across the beam until you reach the wall. Shimmy to the right and 
    go around the corner. Walk to the end of the next beam and jump to the 
    platform. Turn left and roll through the small opening.
    
    Go forward and walk to the end of the small beam. Jump to the next beam 
    and hang from it. Drop down to the beam below. If you want, you can 
    kill the guards below with a speed kill, although I find it easier to 
    just drop to the floor and kill them. Take out the guards and walk 
    forward. Enter the small alcove on the right.
    
    Run up the wall and jump to reach a beam. Jump up and grab the beam 
    above. Pull yourself up. Walk left until you reach solid ground. Walk 
    forward and jump to the beam in front of you. Pull yourself up and walk 
    to the end of the small beam.
    
    Jump to the gap between the two walls. Slide down to the bottom and 
    press circle to drop to the floor. Take out the guards here and walk 
    forward. Turn right and jump to the beam. Walk right until you reach 
    the wall. Jump forward to the next beam. Walk left until you reach the 
    end of the beam.
    
    Turn the camera to the left so that you can see a gap between two 
    walls. Jump to it and climb to the top. Hang from the platform on the 
    right and pull yourself up. Walk forward and jump to the next beam. 
    Walk to the end of the small beam and jump to the wall gap. Slide to 
    the bottom and drop down to the floor.
    
    Kill the guard and walk up the small staircase. Go forward and jump to 
    the beam in the middle of the area. Drop to the ground and kill two 
    more guards. When they're dead, climb up the ladder where the archer 
    was. Turn right and walk across the beam. Jump to the platform ahead.
    
    Walk forward and kill the archer. Walk to the end of the hall and roll 
    through the small opening. Go around the corner and save your game at 
    the fountain.
    
       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
       The Streets Of Babylon:
       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Walk forward until you reach the railing. Turn right and run up the 
    wall. Pull yourself up and turn left. Run along the right wall and jump 
    to the beam on the left. Drop to the ground and kill the guards. Run 
    along the left wall to reach another beam. Walk to the end of the beam 
    and jump to the platform.
    
    Follow the path until you reach a dead end. Run up the wall on the 
    right and jump from wall to wall to reach a small ledge at the top. 
    Jump to the ledge on the right. Jump up and grab the ledge above. Pull 
    yourself up and shimmy to the right until you reach the next platform.
    
    Turn right and climb up to the platform above. Turn right and walk 
    across the beam. Turn left and jump from beam to beam until you reach 
    the next platform. Walk forward and hang over the railing. Drop down to 
    the floor below and take out the guards.
    
    Follow the path until you get to another beam. Walk to the end of it 
    and jump to the groove in the wall. Shimmy to the left until you reach 
    another small beam. Pull yourself up and jump to the beam in the 
    distance. Walk to the end of it and jump to the next hallway.
    
    Follow the hallway until you reach a pit. Run along the right wall and 
    jump to the beam on the left. Jump to the wall on the right and rebound 
    to reach the higher beam. Walk to the end of the beam and jump the gap 
    to reach solid ground again. Walk forward and save your game at the 
    fountain.
    
       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
       The Palace Balcony:
       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Turn left and walk forward. Turn right and hop over the railing. Run 
    along the left wall and jump to the balcony on the right. Follow the 
    balcony and turn right into the hall. Kill the guards here, walk to the 
    end of the hall, and turn right. Kill some more guards. Walk to the far 
    side of the room and turn left.
    
    Climb onto the little pedestal here. Run up the wall and press square 
    to plunge your dagger into the dagger plate. Jump up and hang from the 
    higher dagger plate. Jump to the balcony behind you. Turn right and 
    walk to the end of the balcony. Run along the left wall and jump when 
    you reach the shutter to reach another balcony.
    
    
    Walk left and step on the floor switch. A door will open at the end of 
    the hall. Go through the door before it closes. Walk to the right side 
    of the room and climb on the table. Run along the right wall and press 
    square to hang from the dagger plate. Drop down to the beam below you. 
    Walk to the end of the beam and jump to another dagger plate.
    
    Drop down to the floor and kill another guard. Climb up the column on 
    the right as far as you can go. Jump to the small beam on the right and 
    pull yourself up. Jump to the balcony in front of you. Turn right and 
    walk forward. Kill the archer here.
    
    Walk to the railing and hang from it. Jump to the beam behind you. Drop 
    down to the floor and kill the guard. Turn around and walk to the end 
    of the hall. Turn right and destroy the furniture that's blocking the 
    door. Walk forward and climb up to the higher platform. Kill the guard.
    
    Turn left and walk to the wall. You should see dagger plates on this 
    wall. Run up the wall and hang from the first plate. Jump up to the 
    next dagger plate. Now you have to reach a dagger plate to your left. 
    It seems impossible but there is an easy way to reach it. Hold R1 and 
    tilt the analog stick to the left. The Prince will use the dagger plate 
    to gain momentum and start to run along the wall. Plunge your dagger 
    into the next plate. Run to the left once more and you will reach a 
    balcony.
    
    Turn left and walk forward until you reach the wall. Turn left again. 
    You will see another table here. Climb onto the table. Run along the 
    right wall and press x when you reach the shutter. You will land on an 
    archer and a speed kill sequence will start. Kill the archer and walk 
    to the left side of the balcony. Run up the wall and jump at the peak 
    of your run to reach another beam.
    
    Pull yourself up and jump to the beam behind you. Walk to the end of 
    the beam and jump to the narrow ledge below the railing. Jump up and 
    climb over the railing to reach another balcony. Turn right and break 
    through the barricade of furniture. Kill the guards and turn left. Walk 
    to the end of the hall and turn left again.
    
    Walk forward and enter the next room. Walk forward and turn left. Climb 
    onto the small platform. Run up the wall and hang from the dagger 
    plate. Run to the right to reach a ledge. Shimmy to the right until you 
    reach an opening in the rail. As you go, you will see Kaileena being 
    dragged by those same guards. Climb up onto the balcony, turn left, and 
    run after the guards.
    
    Unfortunately, the guards elude you once more. They will disappear 
    behind a door that you can't open. Walk to the door and turn left. Walk 
    forward and you will see a button on the wall. This opens a different 
    door above the balcony. Run up the wall, pressing the button as you do, 
    and jump to the beam behind you. Walk across the beam and go through 
    the door that you just opened. Save your game at the fountain.
    
       ~~~~~~~~~~~
       The Palace:
       ~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Turn right and look down the next hall. The tiny holes in the floor 
    aren't just for decoration. As soon as you step over them, spikes will 
    pop out of the floor and try to skewer you. Run down the hall and the 
    spikes will just miss you. Turn left at the end of the hall.
    
    Walk forward and roll past the rotating blade. Wait for the spiked log 
    to rotate onto its safe side and run up the wall. Hop over the railing 
    and walk forward. When the rotating blade is almost fully retracted 
    into the wall, run along the wall, past the blade, and jump to the 
    corridor on the left.
    
    Wait for the log to rotate onto its safe side then run along the wall 
    and use the shutter to reach the next hallway. Wait for the next spiked 
    log to rotate to its safe side, then run past the floor spikes and run 
    up the wall. Roll past two more blades and you are done with traps for 
    a while.
    
    Go forward and rotate the lever to open a ceiling panel above you. Turn 
    around and look to your left. There is a brown thing on the wall. This 
    is actually a lever. It works a lot like a dagger plate. Simply run up 
    the wall and press square to plunge your dagger in to the lever.
    
    After you pull the lever, a block will extend behind the Prince. Jump 
    to the block and run up the wall to reach a small ledge. (Be quick 
    about it because the block will start to retract into the wall.) Pull 
    yourself onto the ledge. Jump up and grab the ledge above. Pull 
    yourself up and walk forward. Turn left and walk to the next fountain. 
    Save your game.
    
       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
       The Throne Room:
       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Turn right and walk to the swan statue. Climb onto the flat platform 
    behind it. Run up the wall and hang from the dagger plate. Run to the 
    right to reach another platform. Run along the left wall and use the 
    shutter to reach another platform. Kill the archer here.
    
    Turn right and run along the wall to reach another platform. Run up the 
    wall to reach a higher platform. Turn right and run along the left 
    wall. Use the shutter to reach a small ledge. Jump up and hang from the 
    dagger plate. Jump to the groove in the wall behind you.
    
    Shimmy to the right until you are hanging from a beam. Pull yourself up 
    and walk to the right. Walk to the end of the short beam. Jump to the 
    gap between the walls and slide down to the bottom. Drop to the ground 
    and kill the archer. Run up the wall on the right to reach a small 
    ledge. Pull yourself up.
    
    Shimmy to the right and jump up to the dagger plate. Run to the right 
    and jump to the ledge on the right. Shimmy to the left and jump to the 
    column. Slide down to the ground. Turn around and walk to the stairs. 
    There is an archer at the top of the stairs. You can kill it if you 
    want.
    
    When you're ready, walk past the stairs and kill the two guards. Walk 
    to the doorway behind the guards and a scene will take over.
    
    After the scene you will gain the power to rewind time which is 
    extremely helpful. Hold L1 at any time to rewind time. This takes a lot 
    of the frustration out of platforming and traps. You will regain 
    control of the Prince now. Walk into the room and turn right. Follow 
    the hall until you reach a locked door. (Make sure you run down the 
    final hallway because it will fall underneath your weight.)
    
    Turn around and you will see a button on the wall. Run up the wall to 
    press the button and run through the door before it closes. Quickly run 
    forward and jump across the gap. Run down the hall before it collapses 
    and turn left. When you get to the large gap, turn right.
    
    Run up the wall and hang from the dagger plate. Run to the left and 
    hang from the next dagger plate. Run to the left again to reach another 
    platform. Turn left and run along the wall to reach a banner. Slide 
    down it and land on a balcony. This will also collapse so run into the 
    hallway. Save your game at the fountain.
    
       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
       The Trapped Hallway:
       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Turn right and walk down the hallway. There are a few traps here but 
    they aren't that bad. For most of the traps, wait for the spiked logs 
    to rotate onto their safe sides and roll past the spiked poles. When 
    you have passed all the traps, you will be at the top of a large 
    staircase.
    
    Once you reach the top of the staircase, turn right and you will see 
    another button on the wall. Run up the wall and press the button. This 
    opens a door at the bottom of the staircase. Run down the staircase and 
    go through the door. You are now in a large room. Walk to the column in 
    the far right corner. (Be careful. The floor in the center of the room 
    will collapse.)
    
    This column is the only one you can climb. Climb to the top and jump to 
    the next column. Climb to the top and jump to another column. Climb to 
    the top of this column and jump to the ledge on the left wall. Pull 
    yourself up and shimmy to the right as far as you can. Jump up and grab 
    the ledge above.
    
    Shimmy to the right as far as you can. Jump to the column behind you. 
    Quickly jump to the dagger plate on the wall. Run to the right to reach 
    another dagger plate. Run to the right again to reach a third dagger 
    plate. Jump to the column behind the prince. Quickly jump to the next 
    column.
    
    Jump to the small beam on the left. Jump to the small opening and take 
    a breather. Jump to the banner and slide down. Before you reach the 
    bottom, jump backwards to the gap between the walls. Slide down the gap 
    and drop to the ground. Save your game at the fountain.
    
       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
       The Ruined Palace:
       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Turn left and walk through the archway. Walk down the hallway and you 
    will encounter some more traps. For the first trap, wait for either log 
    to rotate onto its safe side and then roll past the spiked pole. For 
    the next trap, wait for all three logs to rotate to their safe sides 
    and then run past. The last trap is just three spiked poles. Stand on 
    the left side and wait for the first pole to move right. Run past all 
    three poles and then run down the hallway before the floor crumbles 
    under your weight.
    
    Turn left and walk through the door. Walk forward and jump the gap. 
    Turn left and walk to the end of the path. Turn left and jump the next 
    gap. Kill the guard and climb onto the small platform. Jump to the wall 
    and you will land on a small ledge. Shimmy to the left and take out 
    some more guards. Walk into the small alcove on the right. Smash the 
    chest for 10 sand credits.
    
    Turn around and exit the alcove. Walk to the wall opposite the alcove 
    and look to the left. There are two small ledges that you can climb up. 
    Climb up the ledges. Jump up and grab the ledge above. Pull yourself up 
    and take out the guard here.
    
    Turn around and climb onto the higher platform. Jump to the dagger 
    plate in the wall. Jump up to the next dagger plate and then jump up to 
    the ledge above. Pull yourself up and shimmy to the right. When you 
    reach the platform, turn left and jump the gap to the next platform. 
    Run along the right wall and use the shutter to reach another ledge. 
    Shimmy to the left and walk through the door. Save your game at the 
    fountain.
    
       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
       The Royal Chambers:
       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Walk forward and step on the switch to open the door. Follow the hall 
    until a scene takes over. After the scene, save your game at the 
    fountain.
    
       ~~~~~~~~~~~
       The Sewers:
       ~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Walk forward and jump to the pole. Hold R1 to swing on the pole. While 
    swinging, press X to leap forward. Jump from pole to pole until you 
    reach solid ground. Turn left and walk to the end of the path. Jump to 
    the pole on the right side of the pit. Shimmy along the pole to the 
    left until you reach the other side of the pit.
    
    Drop to the ground and walk up the stairs. Jump to the next pole and 
    swing to the groove in the wall. Shimmy to the left until you reach the 
    gap between walls. Slide down the gap and drop down to the ground. Walk 
    into the middle of the circle of light.
    
    Enemies will attack you now and you can only kill them in the light. 
    Kill all of the enemies. When they're dead, walk to the end of the hall 
    and you will see a dagger switch. Run up the wall and activate the 
    switch. This opens a chute below you. Drop down into the chute and 
    slide to the bottom.
    
    Jump to the pole behind you. Drop down from pole to pole until you 
    reach the floor. Turn around and walk to the other end of the room. 
    There is a platform above the water here. Walk onto it and turn left. 
    Run up the wall and hang from the dagger plate. Jump up to the higher 
    dagger plate.
    
    Jump to the ledge behind you. Shimmy to the left and jump to the column 
    behind the Prince. This opens a door below. Slide down the column and 
    walk through the door. Walk to the end of the beam and jump to the gap 
    between the walls. Slide down to the bottom. Drop down to the ground 
    below.
    
    Follow the flow of water, walk through the waterfall, and drop down to 
    the platform below. Walk to the end of the path and turn left. Jump to 
    the ledge and shimmy to the right. Jump to the ledge above and pull 
    yourself up. Shimmy to the right again and jump up to the groove in the 
    wall.
    
    Jump to the column behind you and it will lower. Slide down the column 
    and jump to the pole on the other side of the column. In front of you 
    is a moving section of the wall that has a dagger plate on it. Wait for 
    the wall section to move backwards and swing forwards. Run up the wall 
    and hang from the dagger plate.
    
    Wait for the wall to extend fully and run to the left. You will reach a 
    platform. Turn left and run along the right wall. You will reach a gap 
    between walls. Slide down to the bottom and drop to the ground. Walk 
    forward and watch the scene.
    
    You are now the Dark Prince. You have some new moves but your health 
    meter constantly depletes. In order to regain health, you must gather 
    sand from destroyed objects or slain enemies. Enemies will start to 
    appear out of nowhere. You can kill a few if you want but you don't 
    have to. Walk towards the white block and hold triangle.
    
    The Dark Prince will pull out the block and a door will open. Run 
    through the open door. Walk to the end of the beam and jump to the beam 
    ahead. Jump to the column in front of you and slide down to the ground. 
    Kill the enemies that appear (for health) and walk down the foggy path.
    
    At the end of the path, turn right and walk forward. In front of you is 
    a pit. There is a bar hanging overhead that you can't reach. Jump and 
    press triangle to swing from the bar and land on a new platform. Break 
    the pots for sand and walk to the end of the beam. Jump forward and 
    swing from two more bars and you will reach a gap between walls.
    
    Slide down to the bottom and drop down to the floor. Kill some more 
    enemies. Locate the staircase and face in the opposite direction. Walk 
    forward and pull out another white block. This will open a door at the 
    top of the stairs. Run up the stairs and roll through the door before 
    it closes. Break the pots for sand.
    
    Run up the wooden wall in this room and you will grab onto a ledge. 
    Shimmy to the left and climb up when you can. Jump up and grab the next 
    ledge. Pull yourself up and break the pots for sand. Turn around and 
    run along the right wall. You will grab onto a ladder. Climb to the 
    top.
    
    Walk to the alcove and you will find a dagger switch. Run up the wall 
    and activate it. Wait for the wall to extend and jump to the pole. Jump 
    to the next pole and wait for the spiked log to rotate onto its safe 
    side. Swing to the log and jump from log to wall until you reach the 
    top. Smash the pots for sand.
    
    Follow the hall to the end and walk to the end of the beam. Jump to the 
    gap between the walls and slide to the bottom. Drop to the ground and 
    watch the scene. You are now the regular Prince and don't have to worry 
    about health dropping any more. Drink water if you are low on health.
    
    Walk to the end of the tunnel and turn right. Jump up and grab the 
    ledge. Pull yourself up. Jump to the ledge on the right. Jump up and 
    grab the ledge above you. Pull yourself up and shimmy to the left. Wait 
    for the moving section of the wall to lower and jump to the dagger 
    plate.
    
    Wait for the wall section to rise and run to the left. Walk down the 
    hall until you reach a section with a circle of sunlight. Defeat the 
    enemies here and walk to the next light circle. Kill some more enemies.
    
    Walk to the third light circle and turn left. Activate the dagger 
    switch and run through the door before it closes.
    
    Turn left and go through the curtain. Walk forward and jump the gap to 
    the next platform. Turn right and jump the next gap. Walk to the end of 
    the beam. Jump from beam to beam until you reach the next platform. 
    Turn right and walk to the end of the beam. Jump to the next beam and 
    turn left. Walk to the end of the beam and jump to the next platform. 
    Drink from the fountain and you will be transported to a secret area.
    
    Roll past the rotating blades and walk onto the beam. Hang from the 
    beam and shimmy to the end to avoid being hit by arrows. When you reach 
    the end of the beam, pull yourself up. Jump to the next beam, timing 
    your jump to avoid the spinning blades. Roll past the next blade and 
    the floor spikes and you will receive Life Upgrade number 1.
    
    You will be transported back to the fountain which is now broken. 
    Return to the curtain-covered door and turn right. Roll past the 
    rotating blades and save your game at the fountain.
    
       ~~~~~~~~~~~~
       The Tunnels:
       ~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Walk down the tunnel until you reach a pit. Run along the left wall and 
    jump to the platform on the right. Turn left. Run along the right wall 
    and you will reach a ladder. Climb to the top and jump to the ledge 
    behind you. Jump up and hang from the ledge above you. Wait for the 
    arrows to shoot out and then pull yourself up.
    
    Quickly jump to the ledge behind you. Hang from this ledge until the 
    arrows shoot out and then pull yourself up. Jump up and grab the ledge 
    above. Pull yourself up and you are out of this pit. Turn right and 
    jump across the gap. Walk forward, jump across the next gap, and kill 
    the archers.
    
    Find the wall with the ledge sticking out of it. Run up the wall and 
    grab the ledge. Pull yourself up and shimmy to the right. Jump up and 
    grab the groove in the wall. Shimmy to the right as far as you can. 
    Drop down to the ledge below and quickly shimmy to the right. Jump up 
    and grab the groove in the wall.
    
    Jump to the ledge behind you and shimmy to the right. Jump up and grab 
    the groove in the wall. Shimmy to the right as far as you can. Drop 
    down to the ledge below you and quickly shimmy to the right. Jump up 
    and grab the ledge above you. Pull yourself up and jump to the ledge 
    behind you.
    
    Shimmy to the right. Jump up and grab the ledge above you. Pull 
    yourself up and shimmy to the right. Wait for the arrows to shoot out 
    and jump up to the ledge above you. Pull yourself up before the arrows 
    shoot again. Wait for the arrows to shoot out again and jump up to the 
    ledge above you. Shimmy to the right before you are shot.
    
    Pull yourself up. Climb up the next two ledges before they retract into 
    the wall. Shimmy to the right and climb up through the opening in the 
    railing. Walk forward for a scene. After the scene, save your game at 
    the fountain.
    
       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
       The Fortress:
       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Go to the opening in the railing and drop down into the gap. Slide down 
    to the bottom and drop to the ground. Take out the guards here. It is 
    better to speed kill the guards so they don't call for reinforcements. 
    Once all the guards are dead, walk to the Sand Gate and the Prince will 
    automatically deactivate it. You will gain a new sand tank for doing 
    this.
    
    Walk over to the left side of the platform and you will see a gap in 
    the railing. Wait for the spiked log to rotate onto its safe side. Run 
    along the left wall, over the log, and jump to the pole. Swing to the 
    next pole and jump to the platform. Kill the guard here.
    
    Look down below and you should see a couple enemies standing guard. 
    Above them, a long chain is hanging down. It is hard to see unless you 
    look closely but it is there. Jump to the chain and slide down to the 
    bottom. Drop down and kill the guards. Walk around the area and kill 
    the archer that is patrolling. Return to where the chain was.
    
    In the corner of this area is a wooden platform. Run up the wall, grab 
    the edge of the platform, and pull yourself up. Look up at the wall and 
    you will see dagger plates here. Run up the wall and hang from the 
    first plate. Jump to the higher dagger plate. Run to the left and hang 
    from another plate.
    
    Run to the left again and use the two shutters to reach a ledge. Drop 
    down to the platform below and turn around. Walk forward and run up the 
    wall to reach a ledge. Pull yourself up and wait for the guard to walk 
    away. Hop onto the balcony and kill the guard and the archer.
    
    Rotate the lever counter-clockwise until it clanks into place. Walk 
    over to the gap in the railing and wait for the spiked log to rotate 
    onto its safe side. Run along the left wall to reach another platform. 
    Watch the scene.
    
    Turn right and run along the left wall. Press triangle when you reach 
    the torch to extend your wall run. When you get to the next platform, 
    walk to the right end and you will see a bar hanging above. Use it to 
    swing to the next platform. Drop down to the platform below and kill 
    the archer.
    
    Climb back up to the platform you were just on. Run along the left wall 
    and use your chain to extend your run. At the end of your run, jump to 
    the chain and slide to the bottom. Drop down to the floor and kill the 
    enemies. When they are all dead, climb the column in the center of the 
    area. Jump to the flagpole.
    
    Swing from pole to pole until you reach a dagger switch. Activate the 
    switch and go through the gate before it closes. Walk into the water 
    and watch the scene. After the transformation, walk forward and another 
    scene will take over.
    
       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
       Chariot Chase:
       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    After the scene, you will be in control of a chariot. They are simple 
    to control but dangerous. Use the left analog stick to turn left and 
    right. Press square to attack any enemies. Be careful though: if you 
    run into anything that's not an enemy, you will die. Your recall power 
    comes in handy here.
    
    Follow the path until you are assaulted by an enemy chariot. Do your 
    best to ram it into a wall without ramming into a wall yourself. I find 
    it easy to keep it at bay until you reach the arch and then just ram it 
    into the side of the archway.
    
    When you reach the fork, take the right path and fend of the enemies. 
    Go left at the next fork and keep fending off those pesky enemies. You 
    can take either road at the last fork. At the end of this chariot 
    sequence you will have to fight another chariot. Just keep it at bay 
    until the scene takes over.
    
    Go to the Prince's left and go around the corner to the left. Run up 
    the wall and grab the ledge. Pull yourself up and jump up to the next 
    ledge. Pull yourself up and shimmy to the left. Jump to the ledge 
    behind you. Jump up and grab the edge of the platform. Pull yourself up 
    and walk forward.
    
    Turn left and climb to the top of the ladder. Jump to the ledge behind 
    you. Jump up and grab the groove in the wall. Jump to the higher ladder 
    behind you. Climb to the top. Turn right and walk through the doorway. 
    Walk to the end of the path and hang over the side of the railing.
    
    Jump to the ladder behind you and climb to the top. Jump to the ledge 
    behind you and shimmy to the left. Jump to the ladder behind you and 
    climb to the top. Jump to the railing behind you and hop over it onto 
    the platform. Turn left and follow the hall to the end. You will emerge 
    onto a large platform. Save your game at the fountain on the left.
    
       ~~~~~~~~~~~
       Lower City:
       ~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Walk forward and walk to the end of the beam. Jump to the next beam and 
    turn right. Walk to the end of the beam and jump to the ledge. Shimmy 
    to the right as far as you can. Hang from the ledge and drop down to 
    the groove in the wall. Drop down to the ledge below and shimmy to the 
    right.
    
    Walk to the end of the beam and jump to the next beam. Walk forward to 
    the platform. Turn left and walk forward. Turn left again and walk to 
    the gap in the railing. Run along the right wall and use the shutter to 
    land on the railing of a balcony. Instead of fighting the guards on the 
    balcony, it is best to just drop down to the dagger plate below you.
    
    Drop down and kill the two guards. Follow the walkway under the balcony 
    and turn right. Walk forward and turn left. Walk to the end of the beam 
    and jump to the pole. Swing to the gap between the walls and slide to 
    the bottom. Drop down to the ground and kill the guards here. When they 
    are all dead, walk to the Sand Gate and deactivate it. You will gain 
    100 sand credits.
    
    Go under the archway next to the Sand Gate and turn left. Walk forward 
    and kill the two guards. Climb onto the small platform to the left of 
    the large door. Run up the wall and hang from the dagger plate. Run to 
    the right and you will reach a ledge. Pull yourself up and shimmy to 
    the right. Go through the large hole in the wall and drop down to the 
    floor.
    
    Walk forward and watch the scene. Ignore the sand wolves (trust me, you 
    don't want to waste your time on them) and go down the alley to the 
    left. When you reach the pit, run along the right wall to get across 
    it. Walk forward and turn left. Walk forward and jump across the gap. 
    Walk forward, run up the wall in front of you, and hop over the 
    railing.
    
    Turn right and jump across the next gap. Watch the next scene. Walk 
    forward and use the beam to swing across the gap. Run to the end of the 
    walkway before it collapses. Run along the left wall to reach a pole. 
    Climb on top of the pole and jump to the walkway above you.
    
    Speed kill the archer here. Run along the left wall and use your whip 
    to extend your wall-run. Run around the corner to the left and use your 
    whip to cross the gap. Climb to the top of the ladder and walk forward. 
    Walk into the pool of water and watch the scene. Go down the stairs and 
    save your game at the fountain.
    
       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
       The Lower City Rooftops:
       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Turn right and walk forward. Jump to the rooftop below you and kill the 
    archer. Turn left and drop down to the platform below. Kill the next 
    archer. Run along the right wall and use the two shutters to reach the 
    next platform. Watch the scene that enfolds. 
    
    Follow the walkway to the end, turn left, and jump the gap to the next 
    rooftop. Run up the door and pull yourself up to the higher rooftop. 
    Kill the archer here. Turn left, walk forward, and turn right. Jump the 
    gap to the next rooftop and kill the two archers.
    
    Climb to the higher rooftop and watch the scene. Jump to the lower 
    rooftop in the distance. Run along the right wall and use the shutter 
    to reach a chain. Slide to the bottom of the chain. Speed kill the 
    archer below you and take out the other archer. Go through the doorway 
    and follow the hall until you reach a pit.
    
    Jump to the ledge on the other side of the pit. Descend the series of 
    ledges until you reach the floor. Follow the alley until you reach a 
    dead end. Turn left. Run up the wall to reach a dagger plate. Jump to 
    the ledge behind you. Climb the series of ledges until you reach the 
    next rooftop.
    
    Walk forward and turn left. Run along the right wall until you reach a 
    dagger plate. Drop down to the dagger plate below and then drop to the 
    ground. Turn left and walk forward. Destroy all of the objects here. 
    Run up the wall and hang from the dagger plate. Jump to the higher 
    dagger plate.
    
    Run to the right and activate the dagger switch. This will open two 
    doors that you can go through. Ignore the closer door for now. Drop to 
    the ground and run down the ramp to the further door. Roll under the 
    door before it closes.
    
    Walk forward and hang from the edge of the pit. Drop down to the bottom 
    ledge and jump to the platform behind you. Drop down the two ledges 
    until you are in an underground hallway. Walk to the end of the hallway 
    and climb up the three ledges. Drink from the fountain and you will be 
    transported to a new location.
    
    Run past the spiked logs when it's safe and walk to the end of the 
    beam. Wait for the arrows to shoot and then jump to the next beam. 
    Quickly walk to the intersection of the beams. Wait for the arrows to 
    shoot again and walk to the end of the beam. Jump to the next beam and 
    pull yourself up. Walk to the end of this beam.
    
    Wait for the bottom ledge to extend out of the wall and jump to it. 
    Climb the series of ledges and pull yourself up onto the platform. Walk 
    into the light and you will receive your second life upgrade. You will 
    be transported back to the fountain. Make your way back to the door to 
    this secret area. Turn left and use the dagger switch to open the door.
    
    Walk through the door and go up the ramp. Use the dagger plates to 
    reach the dagger switch again and activate it. Go through the other 
    door this time and save your game at the fountain.
    
       ~~~~~~~~~~
       The Arena:
       ~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Turn right and walk to the end of the long tunnel. Walk into the arena 
    and watch the scene. Now it's time for a boss fight! It's about time.
    
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                                    Klompa
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    This is quite different from a normal boss fight. In order to damage 
    this guy, you have to get rid of its sight. If it can't see you, it 
    can't hurt you. In order to do this, you must find a way to reach its 
    eyes. At the start of the fight, walk to the right side of the arena, 
    rolling to avoid Klompa's smash attacks. Walk around the edge of the 
    arena until you reach a ramp. Walk to the top of the ramp and face 
    right. Run along the wall to reach the beam and pull yourself up. 
    Klompa will smash the wall that is in your way. Hey, thanks man. Run 
    along the wall to reach a platform in the distance. Run up the wall and 
    hang from the dagger plate. Run to the left and you will reach a 
    platform. Walk to the end of the beam and press triangle to initiate a 
    speed kill. Press square when the Prince's dagger flashes and you will 
    take out one of Klompa's eyes.
    
    Now you have to take out his other eye. Walk around the arena until you 
    see another ramp. This ramp has a dagger plate above it (just in case 
    you mistake it for the other one). Walk up the ramp. Run up the wall 
    and hang from the dagger plate. Run to the right and use the next 
    dagger plate. Wait for Klompa to destroy the wall in your way and then 
    run to the right again. Walk to the right a bit. Run up the wall and 
    hang from the dagger plate. Run to the left to reach a platform. Walk 
    to the end of the beam and initiate the speed kill. After the speed 
    kill sequence, Klompa will be blind.
    
    Now that Klompa is blind, we can attack him. He is still dangerous, so 
    watch out. He will swing his sword wildly around but this can be dodged 
    by rolling behind him. Make sure you keep your distance when he swings 
    those massive legs. Get behind Klompa and hack away at his legs. 
    Slowly, his health bar will deplete. When he is about to die, attack 
    his legs a final time and he will stand on one leg. Quickly go to the 
    other leg and slash it. Klompa will fall down and you will go into a 
    third speed kill sequence. Stab whenever the dagger flashes and Klompa 
    will go down.
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    Watch the scene afterwards and save your game.
    
       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
       Arena Tunnel:
       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    Walk forward. Run along either wall to get past the pit. Walk forward 
    and run up the wall in front of you to reach a ledge. Shimmy to the 
    left and turn the corner. Jump up to the ledge above you. Jump behind 
    you and swing from the hanging beam to reach another ledge. Jump up and 
    grab the next ledge. Pull yourself up onto the platform.
    
    Follow the hallway until you reach another pit. Run past the gray 
    squares (when you step between them they try to crush you), jump 
    forward, and swing from the hanging beam to reach a ledge. Wait for the

                                  Mahasti
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    This fight will seem hard at first but it isn't that bad. Mahasti's 
    attacks aren't that varied or devastating. You can block all of her 
    attacks easily. Start this battle by slowing down time and slashing 
    away at her. Continue slowing down time and attacking her until the 
    camera shows a close-up of both fighters. Repeatedly press square to 
    push her away from you and give you a great opportunity to attack her. 
    Go back to the strategy of slowing down time and attacking her until a 
    scene takes over.
    
    Now that you are the dark prince, this battle is much easier. Mahasti 
    will run away like a coward and you must give chase. Make your way to 
    the ledge that she is on, killing the enemies as you go. When you reach 
    the ledge, slow down time and hack away at her until time returns to 
    normal and she runs away again. Continue chasing after her and 
    attacking her until her health is almost gone.
    
    Once her health is almost gone, she will return to the original ledge 
    that you fought her on. Follow her to this ledge. She will resume her 
    normal fighting pattern from before. Keep fighting her until she 
    finally dies.

    Mini-Boss battle "Stone Guardian":
    
    This is a very short and easy battle. All you have to do is roll behind 
    the creature and slash at its legs. After a few stabs, the creature 
    will go down on one knee and a speed kill will be triggered. After the 
    speed kill sequence, the creature, instead of dying, will start to run 
    around while you hang from it. You have to steer the creature with the 
    left analog stick. Do not run headlong into a wall or you both will 
    die. Break through the door to escape this arena.
    
    Continue to steer this creature away from walls. Break through the next 
    door and follow the winding pathway. It is best to start turning well 
    before you reach a corner because the creature is slow at turning but 
    moves quickly. If you run into a wall, rewind time and correct your 
    mistake. Continue doing this until a scene takes over.

    Jump to the groove in the wall behind you. Shimmy to the left and pull 
    yourself onto the platform. Walk forward and you will see a handle. To 
    the right of the handle is a dagger switch. This dagger switch will 
    rotate the statue clockwise. If you rotate the handle, the dagger 
    switch will rotate the statue counter-clockwise instead.
    
    Ignore both of these for now and walk to the ladder. Climb to the top 
    and turn left. Walk to the end of the platform and turn left. Slide 
    down the ladder and you will find another handle and dagger switch. The 
    dagger switch moves the statue forward. If you rotate the handle, the 
    dagger switch will move the state backwards.
    
    To solve this perplexing puzzle you must move the statue:
    
    Forward (1 time)
    Clockwise (2 times)
    Forward (2 times)
    Clockwise (1 time)

    Now it's time for another chariot chase. This one is longer but it 
    isn't that bad. Avoid hitting the walls because this will knock off 
    course and rewind time if you crash. Wind your way through the city, 
    avoiding the obstacles and killing the guards, until a scene takes 
    over.

                                 The Twins
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    This fight seems hard at first but there is a trick to it. Begin by 
    attacking the twin with the giant sword. After a few attacks, the twin 
    with the axe will try to attack you from behind. Roll out of the way 
    and his axe will get stuck in the ground. Go behind the axe twin and 
    attack him. If the sword twin attacks you, block his attacks and 
    continue attacking the axe twin. He will eventually pull his axe out of 
    the ground. Go back to attacking the sword twin until the axe twin 
    tries to attack you from behind again. Roll to avoid his attack and his 
    axe will get stuck again. Attack the axe twin again. Continue this 
    pattern and eventually you will be prompted to begin a speed kill 
    sequence. Trigger the speed kill and press square when the dagger 
    flashes. At this point, both twins should be at about half health. Go 
    back to the tactic of attacking the sword twin and rolling to avoid the 
    axe twin's attack until his axe is stuck in the ground again. Attack 
    the axe twin and you will be prompted to perform a second speed kill. 
    Press square when the dagger flashes and watch the scene that follows.
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    
    After the scene, kill all of the enemies in the room and a door will 
    open. Go through the door and walk forward. There is a tall wall in 
    front of you. Go to the left side of this wall and destroy the objects. 
    Run up the wall and you will grab a ledge. Shimmy to the right as far 
    as you can and pull yourself up.

                              The Vizier: Part 1
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    For the first part of this battle, you need to be on the offensive. The 
    vizier has a few attacks to watch out for, though. He will either stab 
    at you with one arm or he will swipe at you with both arms. To avoid 
    the single-arm attack, either roll to the side or block it. The two-arm 
    attack cannot be blocked, so roll to avoid it. Continue to attack the 
    vizier until he flies away. He will now throw a large piece of rubble 
    at you. Walk to the left side of the area and roll to the left to avoid 
    the rubble. Go back to attacking the vizier until he flies away again. 
    This time he will throw two pieces of rubble at you. Go to the left to 
    avoid the first piece and the right to avoid the second piece. After 
    some more fighting, he will throw three pieces of rubble at you. For 
    this last part, go to the left for the first piece, the right for the 
    second piece, and the left for the final piece of rubble. Attack him 
    some more and a scene will take over.
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                              The Vizier: Part 2
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    During this second phase, most of the hazard comes from the rocks 
    floating around the area. The vizier will use a light orb attack but it 
    doesn't do much damage. Avoid the rocks and run up the column behind 
    the vizier. You will be prompted to do a speed kill. Press square three 
    times and one of the vizier's wings will come off. Avoid the rocks and 
    perform two more speed kills. Once you successfully perform the speed 
    kills, a scene will take over.
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                              The Vizier: Part 3
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    This part is radically different from a boss fight. Basically, you have 
    to make your way to the vizier, using the floating rubble, in order to 
    deliver the final blow. The important thing to remember here is that 
    the vizier will keep pelting you with orb attacks, which will knock you 
    off of any object you are hanging on. It is best to wait on a platform 
    for him to attack you and then continue platforming. The vizier's 
    attack isn't that powerful and only takes away a tiny bit of damage. 
    Find the platform closest to the ground. Run up the column and jump to 
    the platform. Pull yourself up. Jump to the platform in front of you 
    and turn left. Jump to the pole and climb on top. Turn around and 
    shimmy to the right. Jump forward to the next platform. Turn left and 
    jump to another platform. Jump to the pole and swing to the next 
    platform. Turn right and jump to the next platform. From there, jump 
    forward to another platform. Jump to the next platform, turn right, and 
    jump to the pole. Swing to the next platform. Run up the wall and jump 
    to the platform behind you. Pull yourself up. Jump forward to reach the 
    last platform. Jump towards the vizier and press square when the dagger 
    flashes. Watch the scene afterwards.

       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
       Mental Realm:
       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    
    After the scene, attack the dark prince until the sky darkens and you 
    fall into the mental realm. The cool part about this area is that you 
    cannot die. Everything is fairly linear here, so just follow the path 
    until the end. Try to kill yourself if you want. It's fun. Anyway, 
    after you complete this alarmingly easy platforming section, watch the 
    end scene and the credits.
