    *******************************
    CHAPTER 1: PRISON OF THE DAMNED
    *******************************
    
    Once you're in control, evade the Megaera's attacks then attack her using
    the chains you freed yourself. Chase down the Fury and take out the insect
    minions she sends. Continue following her across the bridge down to a
    cavern.
    
    Once inside the cavern, turn to the right immediately to find a chest with
    red orbs and note on the ground that you can examine. Continue pursuing the
    fury until she destroys the floor. Here, you'll have to fight 
    insect-possessed prisoners. Follow the tutorials as well if necessary.
    
    After getting rid of the room of enemies, head to the glowing point on the
    floor and pull the broken part of the floor above to create a stepping
    platform to return to the upper hallway. Open the chest containing green
    orbs ahead then proceed at the end of the corridor to find another note on
    the ground and a ladder going up. Open the chest with red orbs inside once
    you reach the upper ledge then open the heavy door. Continue outside until
    you catch up with the fury.
    
    Pick up the sword from the ground and proceed past the gate. Here, you'll
    have to fight more of the possessed prisoners and the fury's insect
    minions. After the cutscene, you'll have to face the infected/possessed
    hand of Aegaeon.
    
    For the first part of the battle, you just need to simply evade and attack.
    The enemy's attacks are slow and predictable, so you should have enough
    time to react where it's attack will land. Once it is weakened, press R1 to
    grapple it and correctly press the QTE (quick time event) buttons to
    proceed with the second phase of the battle.
    
    For the second phase, the enemy will use the basic lunge attacks and a
    sweep that will cover the entire area. Use the pits to avoid taking damage.
    Continue attacking and hiding until it staggers. Once it does, it will
    start aiming for the pit you've taken cover from the last sweep so get out
    of there immediately to avoid taking damage. Continue attacking it until
    you see a red cursor appear over its head. Press the QTE buttons again
    correctly to defeat it. Steer yourself across the obstacles until you reach
    the next area.
    
    
    
    
    CH02
    *********************
    CHAPTER 2: THE SEWERS
    *********************
    
    Climb the wall to reach the tunnel above then open the gate. Scale the wall
    to the right then make your way to the upper ledge. Continue forth until
    you find a lever and a room with red orb chests. Open the chests then
    interact with the lever. The caged enemies you passed by will be released
    so take them out.
    
    After eliminating the enemies, enter the cage where the first set of
    enemies were released earlier and inspect the floor in the left corner to
    find the first artifact in the game. (Prisoner's Oath Stone)
    
    Head to the right next and pull the large chain to open the gate. Recover
    your health using the green chest in front of the gate then continue
    through the corridor. Walk until the prison cell block you're in gets
    detached by Aegaeon's massive hands. Continue fighting off groups of
    enemies that will be shaken off from their cells. After taking them out,
    head to the edge of the block and grapple on the glowing green point to
    reach the next section.
    
    
    
    
    CH03
    *************************
    CHAPTER 3: THE GUARDHOUSE
    *************************
    
    Continue to the left and open the green chest. Pull the lever next and
    climb the ladder. Jump down to the previous section and pull the crank. As
    you're pulling it, a cyclops will appear. Concentrate on dealing short
    combos and evading its attacks so you can build your rage meter and easily
    stagger it. Once weakened, grapple it and control it for a short time to
    quickly get rid of the possessed prisoners.
    
    Pull the crank next and use the ladder again to the left so you can jump
    from the ledge and swing across to the next ledge. Open the red chest then
    grab on the next wooden beam. Press square to smash the windows and get
    inside. One of the mutated hands will grab and attack you. Press L1 and R1
    quickly to free yourself and to fight this enemy. Quickly go to the left
    side to prevent it from using its sweeping attacks. Keep attacking it and
    evading its overhead attacks until a QTE appears. Pull it to deal
    considerable damage to it.
    
    Next, it will release several insects and will use double sweep attacks. It
    will be difficult to evade these as it requires good timing to pull off.
    Once enough damage is dealt, another QTE will trigger. For the last phase,
    it won't use it's sweep attacks anymore but be cautious since it's larger
    hand and claw will land at the same time. Cancel your combos and evade
    quickly when needed. Once a red marker appears, get near and grapple it to
    initiate the execution QTE.
    
    Upon reaching the next area, enter the next hall and open the red chests.
    Pull the lever then exit the hallway and continue to the right, where
    you'll find Megaera and a few of her minions. You can easily grab these and
    throw them to the moving grinder. Before interacting with the object, go to
    the left to find a red chest. Interact with the machine for the platform to
    ascend. Take out the next set of infected beasts then remove the two clamps
    holding the platform in place. Interact with the moving gears again to
    continue your ascend.
    
    Kill the next set of enemies and jump to grapple the obstruction. Once it
    is removed, you have to quickly climb the wall to avoid getting crushed by
    the massive gears. Once you've reached the ledge, open the green chest and
    climb the ladder to exit the area.
    
    
    
    
    
    CH04
    *****************************
    CHAPTER 4: THE HECATONCHRIRES
    *****************************
    
    Continue climbing until you reach the bridge. Head left until you reach a
    building. Open the door and watch the scene. After the scene, you'll be
    taken outside. Take out the enemies and the massive, infected head of
    Aegaeon will start chewing the platform. You have fend off the group of
    enemies around you while making sure you hit the red fangs on the side of
    the platform. Keep attacking and prioritizing the red fangs until you get
    thrown off to the next ledge.
    
    Once there, you have to fight and weaken the infected hand. It will only
    have attack; it will use its claws to smash the ground three times. These
    are easily evaded. After the third attack lands, quickly head to the right
    and attack the infected hand. This will also allow you to evade the fangs
    on the left. Keep attacking until you can grapple it. Once you're able to
    grapple it, press any of the attack buttons to control the infected hand
    and deal damage to Aegaeon's face.
    
    Once damage has been dealt, Kratos will grapple Megaera. Press the attack
    buttons to finish her off and to complete the chapter.
    
    
    
    
    
    CH05
    *******************************
    CHAPTER 5: THE VILLAGE OF KIRRA
    *******************************
    
    Once the chapter starts, destroy the objects outside the house for some
    extra orbs. Follow the path until you reach the outskirts of the village.
    Before doing anything, enter the house to the left first to find a red
    chest. Next, head to the right and follow the path to find two chests
    containing a Phoenix Feather and Gorgon Eye.
    
    Backtrack and destroy one of the doors to the right, beside some vases to
    access a red chest inside. Destroy the door in the next house to find
    another red chest.
    
    Continue to the next area and it will be blocked. You have to defeat a
    couple of juggernauts and some wolves. The juggernauts are slow but pack a
    punch so avoid getting sandwiched and make sure to use quick and powerful
    combos. Killing them via grapple + QTE sequence also always yields health
    orbs so you may want to kill them that way whenever you have the chance.
    
    After defeating the enemies, proceed to the right again and jump over the
    movable pedestal to reach the balcony of the house. Inside the room, you'll
    find another Phoenix Feather and another artifact (Circe's Vial).
    
    Destroy the door in the ground floor to find another red chest inside. Push
    the pedestal/cage to the previous area and push beside the house near the
    corner to access the red chest on the roof.
    
    Continue forth and head to the right to find a crank. Don't operate it yet
    but go past it and check the left side of the contraption to find the
    second Gorgon Eye in this chapter.
    
    Operate the crank then backtrack to where you left the movable
    cage/pedestal. Climb the roof again and use the rope to reach the other
    rooftop. Continue past the bridge and climb the ladder. Cross the gaps and
    proceed further in the village. Destroy the first broken door to the right
    to find a red chest inside.
    
    Proceed forth and interact with the fire of Ares to gain this ability. Keep
    killing the enemies and press R2 to stun and deal considerable damage to
    them. Once the enemies are wiped out, the door will open. Proceed forth
    continue until you exit the tunnel.
    
    Open the health chest and continue to the next area. More enemies will
    ambush you so proceed and take out the javelin throwers first. Clear the
    remaining enemies and grab the Gorgon Eye from the rooftop of one of the
    houses as well as three red orb chests.
    
    Cross the broken bridge and grab the sling on the ground. Use it against
    the enemy forces in the area then proceed. Open the green/blue chest,
    depending on what you need. Scale the wall and continue to the left  
    
    Continue scaling the rock pillars until you make it to the top. After
    killing the enemies and before operating the contraption, open the two red
    chests behind as well. Pull the crank in the middle up to the farthest
    point it can go then ride the platform up to the next broken bridge.
    
    The door ahead can't be opened so scale the rock wall to the right past the
    chasm and continue to the next area. You'll find another red chest inside
    the ruined house ahead. Collect the red orbs and cross the wooden bridge.
    It will collapse and you'll have to fend yourself against the small group
    of beasts waiting below. After taking them out, you'll have to pull a
    pillar down to reach the upper floor. Do so but don't climb up yet.
    
    Proceed to the right and enter the first house to find a red chest and a
    white chest containing the fourth Gorgon Eye in this chapter.
    
    From that house, follow the path to the right until you reach a treasure
    room with a large, rotating roller. Follow it and go to the central
    platform. Pull the crank to the southwest first, then the northwest then
    finally the northeast. Make your way to the three platforms before the
    roller rolls in and slides them back into position. You'll find two red
    chests, the fifth Gorgon Eye in this mission, a third Phoenix Feather and a
    crank that will disable the roller. This also unlocks the trophy (Round
    and Round)
    
    Backtrack to the spot where you pulled a broken pillar then make your way
    to the upper floor. Here, you'll face a naga. Use strong attacks to stun it
    briefly then follow it up with weaker attacks before evading. If it
    constricts you, press L1 and R1 rapidly until you're able to break free.
    Avoid its petrifying gaze or keep distance until it stops using it.
    Finally, perform a QTE kill for it to release blue orbs to replenish your
    magic meter.
    
    Open the door and go through the corridors until you reach the next area/
    chapter.
    
    
    
    
    
    CH06
    **********************
    CHAPTER 6: THE CISTERN
    **********************
    
    Continue ahead and take out the insects. You can also destroy their nests
    for some extra orbs. Climb the ox statue and make your way to the aqueduct.
    Turn left immediately to find two red chests and a Gorgon Eye chest at the
    end.
    
    Follow the aqueduct until a part of it crumbles. Continue forth and you'll
    have to slide down then press X to jump and R1 to grab hold of the glowing
    green object and swing to the tower ahead. Climb up the tower until you
    make it to the next part of the aqueduct.
    
    You'll eventually reach a blue gate. Take the Ice of Poseidon to learn a
    new magic. This ability will allow you to break blocks, breath underwater
    and freeze enemies so they yield large, red orbs. Kill all enemies using
    your new ability to open the gate.
    
    Continue past the gate and follow the path until you reach three chests.
    One of them contains a Gorgon Eye right in full view.
    
    Jump down to the snake-like machine and pull the ring apart to make it
    move. After the scene, grab hold of the glowing part of the tower and climb
    up to enter it.
    
    
    
    
    
    CH07
    **************************
    CHAPTER 7: TOWER OF DELPHI
    **************************
    
    Once inside the tower, follow the ramp down first to find a Phoenix
    Feather.
    
    Make your way up this time then exit the tower. Head to the right first to
    find two red chests, then continue to the left and take out the eggs/
    hatchlings. Proceed past the ladder and you'll find another red chest and a
    Gorgon Eye chest.
    
    Climb the ladder this time  and defeat the chimera. Once dealt with, pull
    the crank ahead to activate a series of machines that will move the red
    python contraption. Enter the hole on the red python this time.
    
    Once inside, go up to the right to find a red chest offscreen. Open the
    health chest nearby if needed then continue down the ramp to slide. Jump
    across the holes until you reach the section full of eggs and a couple of
    shielded minotaurs. You can grab and remove their shields so you can use it
    as a melee weapon. Clear the entire area for extra red orbs as well.
    
    Destroy a few more eggs blocking an opening to reveal a red chest. Head to
    the opening overhead to get outside. Continue to the left until you find
    some glowing green metal protrusions. Use it to swing to the next part of
    the red mechanical python.
    
    After reaching the other part of the red python, go up the ramp to the left
    first to find an hole in the brown python's side where a red chest and
    Gorgon Eye is found.
    
    Continue along the path until you reach another hole with a gate below.
    This will start the next chapter.

    *****************************
    CHAPTER 8: THE PYTHON'S BELLY
    *****************************
    
    Examine the lightning pot to obtain the Lightning of Zeus. This ability
    will allow you to electrocute your enemies and will make them yield blue
    orbs. Defeat all enemies in the area to open the gate and proceed.
    
    Once the area is clear and the gate is opened, make your way to the top and
    instead of proceeding forth, jump to the lower left to access the chest
    containing the fifth Phoenix Feather and two red chests.
    
    Head to the main path and open the red chest below. Don't go down the ramp
    yet. Instead, run to the opposite direction and follow the path until you
    find a Gorgon Eye and a red chest.
    
    Now make your way back to the ramp and slide down. Jump across then
    immediately grapple the glowing green object to tether yourself on the
    wall. Continue climbing and scaling the broken pieces of the mechanical
    snake until you reach the point where you need to jump off the hole and
    swing to the next python. There, you have to smash the side to enter it and
    slide down the icy interior until make it outside.
    
    Once outside, destroy the eggs and kill any hatchlings that will come out.
    Scale the wall again until you reach the top then pull the metal ring
    holding the red python in place. Once it starts to move, wait until you get
    the prompt to jump to the next python. There you'll be attacked by a
    manticore. Complete the QTE sequence and you'll be on the purple python.
    
    Destroy the eggs and enemies along the way then slide down again. Jump
    across and climb up the wall. Follow the straightforward path then swing to
    the ice wall ahead. Kill the enemies there and open the health and magic
    chests as necessary.
    
    Tether again to the next python and pull the ring apart to free the purple
    python.
    
    
    
    
    
    CH09
    **********************
    CHAPTER 9: ICE CAVERNS
    **********************
    
    While riding the python, you'll have to fend off an enemy ambush. Keep
    fighting them until you see a green glowing hooks to the left where you can
    swing. Take note that the other hooks are covered in ice so you have to
    wait for the ice to break off then swing across.
    
    The next parts are just a series of swinging, running and sliding across to
    catch up with the python. What you need to do is pretty straightforward and
    obvious so I won't be describing them in detail here. At the end of this
    sequence, the last lever will be activated and the tower will be fully
    activated.
    
    After the tiring sequence, climb back up the tower again and go down the
    ramp to find a treasure. (Oracle Seeker's Offering)
    
    Continue up and exit. Use the ladder to reach the top of the tower. Here,
    you'll have to defeat the manticore. For the first part of the battle, you
    just have to avoid it's fire run and concentrate on engaging it on the
    ground. After weakening it, grapple it to initiate a QTE. Land a couple of
    attacks then dodge to keep holding the manticore in place. After 3-4 sets,
    it will try to break free. Mash the circle button to keep it in place.
    
    After its wings are torn off, it will use its tail as its main weapon. This
    has a wide arc and range so be careful. It will also release two hatchlings
    to make your life a bit harder. Keep your distance and weaken the
    hatchlings so you can easily grab them and finish them off with a melee
    attack. Continue making hit-and-run attacks to the manticore until it
    gradually weakens. Finish it off during the QTE sequence. Take note that
    you still have to press the attack buttons and dodge manually to
    successfully complete the sequence.
    
    After the battle, pull the crank to make the temple close enough to the
    tower. Enter the temple afterward.

    Once inside the temple, recover your magic and/or health as necessary then
    open the door. Once inside, you have to defeat the Cerberus. After taking
    out the Cerberus, continue forth and collect the red orbs from the red
    chests ahead.
    
    Pull the ramp ahead then head to the statue emitting green mist to the
    left. This will change the time. Go past the main door and break down the
    door to the far right to find two chests containing a Gorgon Eye and a
    Phoenix Feather.
    
    If the time reverts to normal, touch the green mist again then destroy the
    main door this time. Continue forth until you reach the next hall. After
    the scene, step on the green mist then take the stairs to the right first.
    Destroy the door and follow the path until you reach the next hallway.
    Defeat the enemies to unblock the pathways.
    
    Now in the middle of the hallway is a movable statue. Grab it and push it
    towards the first room to the right. At the upper level of the room lies
    two red and white chests. Push the statue under the metal grate to the
    right then touch the green mist to make the grate fall down on the statue's
    head. Jump on it to reach the goodies.
    
    Head to the next room in the end of the hallway to find two red chests and
    a health chest. You can also destroy the objects in the room for extra red
    orbs. Backtrack to the starting point this time.
    
    From the entrance, step on the green mist and take the stairs to the left.
    Destroy the door and continue to the hallway. Here you'll encounter a
    lightning banshee. Take it out to remove the barricades. There's a couple
    of collectibles found in the first room to the left.
    
    First, grab the movable statue in the middle-right of the hallway. Push it
    inside the lower left room then place it on top of the pressure plate. Now
    step on the green mist, push the statue out of the pressure plate then head
    towards the gate. Once the time returns to normal, push forward to enter
    the next room. Grab the Gorgon Eye and Phoenix Feather inside, as well as
    two red chests and a lever to disable the gate.
    
    Continue to the next room and open the red chest to the left. Step on the
    mist and jump through the hole on the floor to reach the lower level.
    Continue forth to reach the next chapter.

    CHAPTER 11: DELPHI CATACOMBS
    ****************************
    
    Collect the health and red orbs then proceed to the Hades gate. Interact
    with the burning pot to acquire the Soul of Hades ability. Vaporizing
    enemies using this ability yields green orbs. Kill all the enemies in the
    area to open the gate.
    
    Head to the next room where two Talos statues will come to life. Equip your
    Hades Soul deal damage to these enemies. Killing them in QTE will always
    result in gold orb drops. After destroying them, move the statue in front
    of the ladder near the doorway. Use it to reach the ladder then climb up.
    
    Once you've reached the upper ledge, go to the left to find a health chest.
    If you jump across the ledge to the lower left, you'll find a red chest as
    well. The door further left will be locked so jump back to the previous
    ledge and continue to the right to find a lever inside a room.
    
    Pull the lever to reach the lower floor. Continue through the corridor to
    reach a hallway with spikes on the ground and you'll also get a glimpse of
    two white and red chests at the end of that hallway. Jump on the first
    platform then pull the two snake heads above for them to release the
    time-bending green mist. Quickly make your way to the second platform and
    do the same. Run up to the ramp and pull yourself towards the door then
    smash it open. Run back from where you landed to find the chests and loot
    the collectibles and orbs inside.
    
    Step on the green mist then move to the next room. Take out the enemy
    flyers first then open the red and green/blue chests in the next room.
    Backtrack to the previous room then step on the second mist. Make your way
    to the next room again and quickly cross the open gate before time resets.
    
    Kick the next door open to reach the main hall. Here, you'll fight shades.
    They'll be able to produce three ethereal minions that you can still damage
    and execute for extra orbs. Keep mobile and remember to pull the shades out
    from the ground by grappling them when they're burrowing. Be wary of their
    boomerang-like blades and don't hesitate to use magic if necessary. After
    getting rid of them, head to the opened gate to the right. You'll see a
    white chest with two red chests in the closed gate to the left but ignore
    it for now.
    
    Head to the opened gate and open the health chest as needed, then pull the
    lever to the left to activate the green mist. Step on the mist then go to
    the left. Pull the pillar when you get the prompt then climb the wall to
    the left. Scale it until you're able to jump to the platform.
    
    Grapple the two statue heads then jump on the hourglass once the platform
    swings near it. Jump to the next ledge and pick up the glowing object to
    your immediate right to get a new treasure. (Aletheia's Charm)
    
    Head to the right to find a red chest, then continue to the left this time
    and pull the lever. Enter that room and jump across. Head to the right and
    enter the room past the red mist to find two red chests inside.
    
    Step on the mist then destroy the door to the right. Jump down to the lower
    floor and destroy the next door to the right to reveal a red and Gorgon Eye
    chest behind.
    
    Backtrack to the previous hall then jump to the lower floor. Take out the
    enemies then move the statue in front of the fire. Step on the mist again
    then jump to the lower floor again and this time, move the statue on the
    wooden plank and wait for time to reset. This will enable you to bring the
    statue to the upper ledge.
    
    Push the statue along the ledge until you make it back to the main hall.
    Push the statue over the ledge and continue pushing it past the mist. To
    the lower left lies a pressure plate where you can put the statue over.
    This will lift the gate to the upper left. Go there to get a Phoenix
    Feather and open two red chests as well.
    
    Now return to the statue and move it in the notch in the middle, right in
    front and under the platform above. Now step on the mist again, then use
    the statue as a foothold to reach the platform. Quickly grapple the two
    statue heads to swing the platform again and smash the hourglass. This will
    complete the area.

    CHAPTER 12: ORACLE'S CHAMBER
    ****************************
    
    After the scene, run across the bridge as it collapses. Just jump and
    follow the QTE actions prompted on your screen to finish this sequence.
    Once you caught up with Castor, throw a stone at him to start the boss
    battle.
    
    For the first phase of the battle, you just have to time your evasion
    against Castor's basic three-hit combo. Continue dealing damage to him
    until he gives off health and magic orbs. He will then smash the ground,
    making it crumble beneath your feet. Round around from left, down then
    right to avoid falling in the abyss below.
    
    In the next phase, Castor will begin deploying movement-restricting auras
    in the battlefield and he'll also  deal considerable AOE (area-of-effect)
    damage upon impact of his attacks, as well as the ability to release a
    mid-range shockwave.  He'll be vulnerable right after his impact smash so
    use that time to attack then quickly evade as soon as he recovers. Keep
    doing this until he charges up again and destroys all the pillars in the
    area. Grapple the boulders from the pillars and haul them over to Castor to
    deal damage and recover a bit of your HP if the throw connects.
    
    After this, Castor will start attacking from above the pillars. The pillars
    will turn gray, indicating that you can smash it to pieces. Castor will
    shoot  you with projectiles in this phase and will also make the floor
    crumble. You can continue destroying the pillars until you can catch up
    with him and destroy the pillar he's on or use the boulders from the
    pillars you destroyed earlier. Either way, this will make him fall to the
    ground and stagger him. Use this chance to deal massive damage.
    
    Once he recovers, he will begin a series of lightning-fast slashes. You can
    block these but be prepared to evade either an aerial smash or grapple
    follow up. He'll be open after his series of slashes or the air smash so be
    ready to counterattack when you have the chance. He'll also occasionally
    deploy his movement-restricting auras and shockwaves so be careful of those
    as well. Keep dealing damage until he flies in the air and starts
    destroying the floor again.
    
    For the last sequence, you have to correctly press the QTE buttons to
    finish Castor off.

    CHAPTER 13: PASSAGE TO DELPHI
    *****************************
    
    After finishing them off, walk towards the disgusting twin and kill it.
    Next, walk towards Castor's corpse to retrieve the Amulet of Uroborus.
    First, target the glowing rubble in front of you then press L2 to activate
    the amulet. Turn the right analog stick to the right to “heal” the
    rubble. Just hold it in that direction, enough to re-arrange the rubble
    into a platform that you can hop unto.
    
    Jump to the platform to the left then run towards the screen to find a red
    chest. Now backtrack a bit and step in front of the ledge so you can
    activate the amulet and restore the bridge. Jump on the bridge and follow
    the path as it curves to the left. Here you'll find a decayed chest that
    you can restore using the amulet.
    
    Head to Aletheia for a scene. After hearing the oracle's dying words,
    continue forth and jump across the chasm. Scale the wall to the right first
    as it leads you to a secret cavern containing a Phoenix Feather.
    
    Exit the cavern and scale the wall to the left. Jump to the aqueduct below
    and follow it until you reach outside. Continue past the Poseidon gate and
    kill all enemies. Proceed down the aqueduct and stand on the broken edge.
    Use the amulet to restore the aqueduct and create a passage. Continue forth
    to the Cistern.

    Defeat the enemies along the way then restore the broken part of the
    aqueduct using the amulet. Once repaired, continue to the end of the
    aqueduct to reach the Gorgon Eye chest and two red chests.
    
    Jump to the lower ground and take out all enemies to unblock the path.
    You'll find a decayed chest along the way. Restore it and follow the
    corridor. Turn to the right before reaching the health and magic chests to
    find another decayed chest.
    
    Defeat the ogre and the parasites but before restoring the wooden bridge,
    head to the right to find another decayed chest. Jump on the lower ground
    below and you'll find two red chests again inside the house. Proceed
    further to the right to find yet another decayed chest.
    
    Return to the upper ledge and restore the wooden bridge. Cross it and
    continue past the chasm and follow the path until you reach the large
    machine you encountered before. Restore it using the amulet but not
    completely; you should restore it enough to clear the large piece of debris
    along the crank's path. Once it is   lifted, pull the crank all the way to
    the end then use the amulet again to decay, for the large piece to block
    the crank and prevent the wheel from moving.  Before stepping on the green
    platform,  collect the red orbs from the chests behind the watermill.
    
    While on standing on the green platform, use the amulet to fully restore
    the watermill. Jump to the broken part of the aqueduct and restore it for
    the water to flow freely in the watermill.

    As soon as you start, dive down and follow the cavern to the right. Swim up
    when you see the clear water above to find two chests containing a Phoenix
    Feather and a Gorgon Eye.
    
    Dive to the water again and follow the straightforward cavern this time
    until you reach a ledge. Climb up and defeat the enemies in the area then
    use the amulet to decay the chains near the ledge to open the massive gate.
    
    Jump to the water again and follow the underwater cavern until you reach
    the part where it splits to the upper and lower paths. Take the lower path
    and follow it until you find a glowing object on the ocean floor. Pick it
    up to obtain a treasure. (Boat Captain's Idol)
    
    Continue forth until you reach the end of the path where you can swim up.
    Collect the red orbs and open the health/magic chest then proceed through
    the narrow crevice  and follow the tunnel to reach the harbor.
    
    You can destroy various objects here to gain extra red orbs. In the right
    side of the harbor lies two red chests so go there first. Continue to the
    left and you should see the two white chests in the corner. Go there to
    obtain a Phoenix Feather and Gorgon Eye. Now board the ship for a scene and
    to end the chapter.

    CHAPTER 16: PRISON OF THE DAMNED
    ********************************
    
    Defeat all enemies in the immediate area then use the amulet to restore
    much of the destroyed part of the prison. Continue ahead then turn to the
    left to find a red chest and a Phoenix Feather.
    
    Continue along and open the door to the left. After the scene and breaking
    free from the fury's illusion, head to the right to find health and magic
    chests. Behind the rubble is another treasure. (Orkos' Cloak)
    
    Go to the left and kill the Empusa. Executing will yield magic orbs. Scale
    the wall and make it to the rooftop. Kill the enemies there and use the
    amulet to restore much of the destroyed part of the prison ahead.
    
    Once fixed, jump off then grapple the massive chains below. Swing across
    more green objects until you reach a ledge. Follow the stairs down and head
    to the right to find a decayed chest along the way. Restore it and collect
    the red orbs then go down the ladder.

    First, remove the corpse from the clamp-like machine in the middle of the
    room. Then use the amulet to decay the iron holding the chains of the other
    corpse on the wall. Grapple the corpse and pull it towards the clamp
    machine then release to lock it in place.
    
    Now pick up the other corpse and enter the newly opened doorway. Place the
    corpse down then operate the machine to lift you up. Pick up the corpse
    again and stand near the edge of the ledge until the camera pans down to
    the pressure plate below. Throw the corpse there to lift the metal box that
    you can use as foothold to reach the next ledge. Once there, go to the
    right to find a Gorgon Eye.
    
    After the conversation with the scribe, continue through the hallway to the
    left, then jump to the room below. Take out all enemies then pull the large
    chunk of meat(?) until it's under the hanging ramp above.
    
    Follow the path and climb up the ladder then exit. Continue along until you
    trigger a scene. Complete the basic QTE and the chapter will be complete.

    Proceed forth until a group of enemies ambush you. Kill them all then
    approach the corpse in the other side of the dock. After the scene, use the
    amulet to restore. You need to suspend the restoration enough for the
    debris to be arranged so you can use them to cross the ledge across.
    
    After reaching the other side, use the amulet again to fully restore the
    lift. Ride it up and defeat the enemies. Go to the next lift and pull the
    boulder only to be disrupted by large tentacles. Push it away and you'll
    get thrown to the other side of the island. Kill two more enemies.
    [img=3-27-2013_12.jpg title=]
    Make your way up to the foot of the statue but instead of going straight
    forth, continue to the left until you reach a wooden scaffolding. You'll
    find the last phoenix feather here and two red chests.
    
    Backtrack to the ledge where you climbed up earlier then head to the right
    this time to find the last gorgon eye and a red chest.
    
    Now continue to the main path, open the health and/or magic chests as
    necessary. Scale the wall and make your way to the upper platform. Defeat
    the juggernaut to continue.
    
    Scale the wall and jump to the rock ledge ahead and make your way up. Grab
    hold of the glowing green hook and smash the iron grate to enter the
    statue. Once inside, pull the wheel across the chasm and grab hold of the
    hanging shield to reach the other ledge.
    
    Enter the narrow passage in front and jump to the next handhold. After
    landing in the floor below, take out the empusa and more flyers. Destroy
    all the eggs afterwards for extra red orbs. Once done, pull the stack of
    gears and push it to the far right where you can use it as a foothold to
    reach the upper platform. Destroy the obstacles preventing the giant chain
    from moving.
    
    Now go back down and use the amulet to restore the chain. Pull the lever
    all the way to the left then quickly place the stack of gears in between
    the larger gears so you can use the gear heads to the left as handholds and
    reach the two red chests and two white chests (if you already collected all
    Phoenix Feathers and Gorgon Eyes by following this guide, these should
    contain red orbs only)
    
    Now go back to the ground and push the crank all the way to the right,
    until the gear on the ceiling (with the glowing hoop) turns towards you.
    Once you pushed the crank all the way to the right, run to the left and
    push the stack of gears in between the large gears. You'll know you got it
    correct if you see the handholds to the right. Now use the amulet to decay
    the chain and push the crank again all the way to the right. This should
    make the overhead gear stop and allow you to reach the upper corridor.
    
    Climb the wall and scale it until you reach the next room to the left.
    Collect the red orbs from the chest and push the large boulder ahead to
    complete the chapter.

    CHAPTER 19: THE FOOT OF APOLLO
    ******************************
    
    After the chapter starts, climb the wall to the left and make your way up
    until you reach a ledge. Before continuing to the left, head to the right
    to find the last decayed chest. Restore it and open it to unlock the trophy
    "It if Ain't Broke"
    
    Make your way to the platform to the left where you'll have to fight an
    amazoness and her harpies. Once cleared, keep attacking the wooden beams to
    destroy them and create a foothold.
    
    Climb up and make your way to the left until you reach a gondola. Activate
    the lever and kill the enemies that come your way as you make it across. It
    will be easier to grapple and throw them than actually attacking them. If
    ever they latch unto you, shake them off to avoid getting thrown off the
    gondola. Continue doing this until the kraken destroys it. Climb up and
    jump to the next hanging stone and slide down the wire to reach the
    interior of the statue's head.
    
    Once inside, take out the enemies then operate the large chain to the
    right. Quickly jump on the descending platform ahead to reach the upper
    ledge. Collect the red orbs to the right and open the health chest. Operate
    the large spiral until a movable stone block is pushed by the spiral.
    
    Grapple the ceiling to make the gear move. Jump on it and make your way to
    the third gear. Before moving forth, go to the right where you can scale
    the wall and loot the red chest on a lone platform there. Continue to the
    next corridor where you'll get attacked by parasites. Destroy them all and
    their nest then go to the left to find another red chest.
    
    Continue until you reach the cliff with magic and health chests and a
    zipline. There's also another red chest to the right so collect them then
    use the zipline. Before moving forth, there's a ladder to the left that you
    can use to go down. You'll find a red chest and white chest there (I'm not
    sure if this is a Gorgon Eye or Phoenix Feather). If you're able to collect
    all Gorgon Eyes and Phoenix Feathers, the white chest will just produce red
    orbs.
    
    Make your way to the end of the walkway and jump to the ground below. Here
    you'll have to fight another amazoness and two centaurs. After defeating
    them, step on the glowing spot on the ground and pull the massive chains.
    Climb up and before going left, turn to the right to find a red chest.
    There's also a white chest in the ramp to the right.
    
    Continue inside to find a rotating platform that's operated by pressure
    plates. Step on them and switch between the pressure plates to avoid
    getting scorched. Jump to the opening and loot the red and green chests as
    necessary. Move forth then swing across the green hoops then smash the wall
    open to get inside the other part of the statue.
    
    Climb the wall up and cross the ledge as it collapses. Once you've reached
    the upper pathway, keep destroying the eggs and make your way to the left
    to find two red chests at the end. Continue forth and swing and smash the
    next wall. Destroy the insects and their nest on the left wall then climb
    the wall to find another green hoop outside. Swing to it to complete the
    chapter.

    CHAPTER 20: THE GAUNTLET OF APOLLO
    ***********************************
    
    To break the famous spartan phalanx formation, use heavy attacks and attack
    them while they're in disarray or after they pounce with their spears. Keep
    doing this until Megaera appears. You have to prioritize dealing damage
    with her since the supply of soldiers will be infinite. You'll have a brief
    warning of her attacks; just take note when her claws are glowing then move
    out of the way.
    
    Once enough damage is dealt, she'll climb the roofs and start attacking you
    with projectiles and exploding bugs. Kill the illusionary soldiers then
    pick up their spear. Use it to damage the fury until she falls down to the
    ground where you can deal massive damage to her via QTE.
    
    During the scene, you'll be pinned to the wall by the fury's familiar.
    Attack it and evade as necessary to complete the short mini-game. You'll
    have to fight Alecto afterward. When she's raining fireballs is a good
    chance to attack her. Just land a few light hits then evade as necessary.
    Be careful of her charges as well. Keep doing this until she is weakened.
    Grapple her to start a QTE.
    
    Magaera will join the battle this time. You have to keep watch when they're
    bracing for an attack. Observing and reacting to their charges will help in
    this battle a lot. One thing you can anticipate is Magaeara's air stomp
    that releases an area-wide shockwave. The screen slows down a bit before
    she triggers it so you can time your jump and avoid damage. After doing her
    stomp, she'll usually be weakened and vulnerable for a few seconds. Use
    this chance to deal damage to her.
    
    Once enough damage is dealt, she'll surround herself with a protective
    barrier. Don't bother attacking her anymore. Focus on her sister and attack
    her while she's lobbing fireballs around. Be careful since Magaera can
    still use her claws to create a small shockwave upon impact. When they're
    both weakened, grapple them and complete the QTE to complete this chapter.

    CHAPTER 21: THE FOREARM OF APOLLO
    *********************************
    
    Operate the crank until you can't rotate it anymore then hold L2 and press
    triangle to leave a copy of yourself on the crank. Jump on the lowered
    platform then press L2 and Triangle again to deactivate the copy and let
    the lift to move up. Head to the right first to find a treasure
    (Stonemason's Chisel) and jump on the nearby ledge to find two red chests
    and a white chest.
    
    Next, proceed and step on the circular pressure plate. Leave a copy of
    yourself again then swing to the next platform. Defeat all enemies, with
    the help of your new ability then continue to the left. Scale the wall
    there and make your way to the ledge to the right.
    
    Open the magic/health chest then pull the platform ahead until you can't do
    so anymore. Leave your copy there but before jumping on that plaform, jump
    back down to the lower floor. The gate to the left will be open and you can
    freely loot the red and white chests, as well as destroy the objects inside
    for some extra orbs.
    
    Make your way back to that platform again and repeat the process. Jump on
    the next platform then deactivate the copy and jump to the next ledge. Move
    to the left to shift the weight there then leave your copy. Go to the right
    this time and grab hold of the handholds. Make your way up then jump on the
    next wall where you'll have the prompt to smash the lower wall open.
    
    Swing across the sea again and defeat an amazoness, cerberus and wolves.
    After taking them out, pull the chains on the right and leave your copy to
    secure it in place. Next, use the amulet to restore the chain enough for
    the lower part to get connected. Suspend it and use it as a foothold to
    reach the ledge above. The red and white chests to the right are now
    restored so you can loot them again. Head inside to the left this time.
    
    You have to operate the lift again using the pressure plates but this time,
    you have to make it all the way to the top. Enemies will appear in the lift
    as well so you have to be careful not to get scorched and avoiding the
    enemy attacks altogether. If your copy vanishes you have to leave it again
    on the pressure plate to prevent the platform from descending again. Once
    you've reached the top, the pressure plates will be deactivated so you can
    use your copy again for offensive attacks. Finish off the enemies to open
    the path.

    CHAPTER 22: THE RIBS OF APOLLO
    ******************************
    
    Open the health and magic chests to the left then head to the right to find
    a red chest. The next sequence is pretty much straightforward since you
    need to swing and climb various parts of the statue.
    
    After landing on a platform and climbing a ladder, turn to the right first
    to find two red chests. Continue to the left until you reach another
    platform where you need to take out more enemies. After clearing the area,
    look to the left to find a raised ledge with two red chests and two white
    chests.
    
    After looting the chests, head inside and push the gear until it stops.
    Open the health/magic chest then proceed. Push the second gear and exit to
    the next area.

    ***********************
    CHAPTER 23: THE FURNACE
    ***********************
    
    Kill all enemies then operate the gear nearby. Quickly jump on that
    platform and wait for it to return to its original position. Follow the
    path until you reach what seems to be a workshop. Head to the left and
    examine the shining object on the table beside the red chest to get another
    treasure. (Archimedes' Treatise)
    
    Pull the crank to open up the lid in front then jump through it to reach
    the furnace below. You'll find two white chests in the area as well.
    Operate the gear to the right to lower the gate, then move the pile of coal
    found in the upper right compartment.
    
    Move the coal and place it beside the second gear. Operate the gear to
    create sparks which will light up the coal and burn it to ashes almost
    instantly. Now move the coal pile back to its original position and restore
    it using the amulet. Next, pull the container again and place it inside the
    compartment beside the first gear. Operate the gear for the molten liquid
    to fill up the container.
    
    Once the container is filled, take it out and move it to the furnace to the
    left and place it under the pile of coals. Restore it using the amulet and
    the fire should reach the coal above, bringing the surface to life. Exit
    and you'll have to deal with more enemies. Defeat them all then operate the
    first gear again. Ride the same platform and backtrack to the workshop. Now
    you have to make it to the upper part of the furnace using the moving lids
    as footholds.
    
    After getting lifted, carefully cross the walkway where a hanging cauldron
    is pouring fire on it. After making it to the other side, scale the ledge
    to the left then climb up to the conveyor belt. Head to the right first to
    find two red chests. Head to the left this time until you reach a gear.
    Operate it and before going to the right, make sure you have a full magic
    meter.
    
    You'll be trapped between two cauldrons and you have to defeat all enemies
    before you get burned to death. Don't hesitate to use your magic attacks to
    take control of the enemies. Deploying your copy will also help in
    controlling the crowd. Once all enemies are defeated, the fire columns will
    disappear and you can continue forth.

    CHAPTER 24: THE SHOULDER OF APOLLO
    **********************************
    
    Move around until enemies appear. Kill them all out then use the amulet to
    restore the chain. After the scene, loot the chests then continue to the
    right and control Kratos as he slides down a long, winding ramp. You'll be
    back in the furnace after the sequence.

    CHAPTER 25: THE FURNACE
    ***********************
    
    Operate the gear to the right to lower the gate, then operate the next gear
    for the machinery to pull the lantern higher. The current floor will only
    ascend if you throw enemies to the fire. Make sure you weaken the enemies
    first so you can easily grapple and throw them around. As the platform
    rises, avoid stepping on the lines as this opens up once enough enemies has
    been sacrificed to the fire. Keep an eye when these lines start to wiggle
    and stay in the square parts of the floor to avoid falling down.
    
    Once you reach the top floor, kill the remaining enemies then collect the
    treasure in the upper left corner. (Statue Worker's Idol)
    
    Pull the crank all the way to the back then leave your doppelganger to keep
    it pulled. Operate the gear then you'll have to repeat the last sequence to
    get to the upper level.
    
    The difference here is that a heavy enemy will join the waves of enemies
    and there are a couple of raging fires, limiting your battlefield to a
    small area only. Don't hesitate to use your shadow and magic for crowd
    control. Quickly execute the large enemies when they're weakened to give
    you much needed breathing space to decimate and grab the lesser peons.
    
    Kill the remaining enemies once you've reached the upper floor and loot the
    chests. Enter the beam of light to reach the top part of the statue. Once
    outside, step on the edge of the walkway then use the amulet to fully
    restore the statue.

    CHAPTER 26: THE EYES OF APOLLO
    ******************************
    
    Push the block off the crystal to make it rise and split the beam of light
    into two. Kill the enemies next. Once clear push the stone block to the
    left and pull the lever there to lower the beam of light. Don't forget to
    collect the red orbs to its left. Next, jump to the lower floor and push
    the stone to the right and use it to reach the ledge. Collect the red orbs
    to the right then use the ladder to reach two white chests above.
    
    Jump to the left and step on the conveyor belt. Leave your shadow there and
    quickly jump back to the lower floor and make your way to the left. Wait
    for your clone to slowly get near the end of the belt then operate the
    chains to extend the piece that will lock the crystal in place. Make sure
    that the metal hook is extended already before the shadow lands  on the
    crystal. When timed correctly, the shadow's weight will cause the crystal
    to descend and the hook will automatically lock it in place. The ladder to
    the left will be lowered once done. Climb up the ladder to exit the statue
    through its helmet.

    CHAPTER 27: THE LANTERN OF DELOS
    ********************************
    
    After the scene, kill the manticore and proceed for a scene. After the
    scene, head to the left and open the door to activate the crystal above the
    Eyes' enclosure. Head to the enclosure and grab on the handle. Pull it
    clockwise until the mirrors inside the enclosure align and beam to the fury
    barrier. Leave your shadow there then go past the barrier.

    ***********************************
    CHAPTER 28: THE TRIAL OF ARCHIMEDES
    ***********************************
    
    Open the two white chests and a red chest to the upper left then head to
    the right and open the door. Once the eyes' enclosure is open, go there and
    pick it up to be added to your inventory.
    
    After the platform descends, use the Eye on the illusion then grapple it to
    enable the platform to rise up again. The platform will stop and you have
    to defeat several enemies. These enemies drop magic orbs upon death and
    they're dangerous enough to quickly decimate you if you give them the
    chance to corner you. Use your magic attacks. At this point, you should
    have already a fully upgraded element or two. You should do your best to
    minimize your damage at this point; otherwise, you'll have a grave
    situation in the next waves. Abuse your spells as necessary. It will help
    if you collected all Phoenix Feathers and Gorgon Eyes at this point, which
    will make this challenge manageable.
    
    Do the same thing again to release the clamp holding down the platform. It
    will stop again and you'll have to fend off a series of enemy attacks
    again. You'll have to kill amazonesses and their harpies. After taking them
    out, the columns will start spewing fire in intervals as you deal with
    enemies. You can roll towards the fire to avoid getting burned and to
    escape the enemies in this narrow death trap. After all enemies are taken
    out, destroy the fury's illusion and grapple the clamp to make the platform
    ascend again.
    
    The platform will ascend again only to stop for the third time. Again, if
    you didn't manage to keep your HP up in the last wave, this wave could
    spell trouble for you. Defeat the centaur by blocking its simple attacks
    and evading its charges. Use your fully upgraded element's strong attack
    (Soul of Hades is a good example) to deal extra damage at a safe distance.
    After taking out the centaur, your HP will be recovered a bit. Next, the
    shades. Your shadow will be a great help in throwing these light enemies
    airborne. It will be safer there so perform air combos often. These enemies
    drop magic orbs so use your magic to soften them up and allow you to weaken
    them for execution faster.  After clearing all enemies, release the last
    clamp to complete the trials.
    
    Once you've reached the previous floor, head to the right and close the
    door. Go the enclosure and destroy the illusion on the handle bar and pull
    it until the mirrors inside the enclosure align. Leave your shadow there
    then head to the illusion gate. Destroy it using the Eyes then go past the
    portal.
    
    After the scene, wait for the floor to stop then head to the right of the
    enclosure to find the last treasure of the game. Open the door for a scene.

    Pull the crank all the way to the back then leave your shadow to keep hold
    of it. Pull yourself to the cage then release your shadow so you can reach
    the other side of the gate. Release your hold then defeat the two empusas.
    Repair the stairs ahead then enter the Citadel.

    ****************************
    CHAPTER 30: ALECTO'S CHAMBER
    ****************************=
    
    This is the final boss fight so let’s get started. Approach the fury
    sisters and destroy the barrier with the Eye. Wait until you get thrown
    into a boat. Take out the normal enemies while evading  Tisiphone’s
    aerial barrage and charging attacks. The lesser minions won’t be
    attacking aggressively so you just have to keep your eyes peeled and evade
    when their spears turn red. Keep dealing damage to Tisiphone until she
    releases green orbs. Keep dealing damage to her to end the first phase of
    the battle. 
    
    Once Alecto’s grabs hold of your boat using her tentacle, attack it until
    it is covered by a illusionary armor. Destroy that armor using the Eye and
    keep attacking that tentacle. One of the tentacles can spew sticky ink so
    use Orkos’ Oathstone (L2 + triangle) to escape. Keep dealing damage to
    that tentacle until you see a prompt to grapple it. 
    
    Alecto will still grab hold of the boat. This time, you have to remove the
    protective skin on the tentacle and attack it while avoiding the other
    tentacles’ attacks. Once enough damage is dealt, you’ll get a prompt to
    grapple it. Do so to trigger a QTE. Press the buttons correctly and
    you’ll finally be prompted to impale and cut one of the tentacles.
    You’ll be submerged in the sea where you have to do another QTE. Once
    you’ve grab hold unto Alecto’s head, keep hitting the square button to
    finish this sequence. 
    
    Once you’re in the platform, pick up the spear nearby and keep throwing
    spears at Alecto. Be careful when two of its tentacles is covered with
    ice-like coating. When it hits the ground, it will create shockwave.
    Double-jump to avoid getting damaged. When Alecto rushes in for a bite,
    evade to the left and attack her until your chains can’t reach her. Her
    tentacles can still spew ink which you can easily evade. A spear will
    occasionally re-appear so pick it up so you can easily deal ranged damage. 
    
    Tisiphone will join the battle. Her attacks are still the same so deal as
    much damage to her as possible until Alecto joins the battle. It will be a
    challenge evading all their attacks so don’t hesitate to use magic to
    negate possible damage that will be dealt to you. Keep attacking Tisiphone
    first until she leaves the area. You can now concentrate on dealing damage
    to Alecto. Once she’s critically wounded, a red grappling prompt will
    appear over her head. Grapple her and properly press the QTE buttons.
    Finally, impale the gaping wound to end the battle. 
    
    The weakened sisters will be at your mercy now. Just approach them and
    follow the prompts to kill them and end the game.
