__ C01 | Chapter 1 ___
______ Prologue ______
======================

Once you have controls, you can destroy several objects here to gain some
studs but I do suggest to just play normally until you have the chance to
gather the multiplier blocks, which can easily and quickly rack up your
score.

Press Square to attack and press X to jump. Beat 5 orcs with banners, then
beat 3 orcs with shields. Mash on Square to remove the shields from the
shielded ones. Hold Triangle, then choose Elendil to bring down the towers
and beat the orcs on top.

The fight with Sauron is very simple. Just use Elendil, run around to avoid
his strikes and wait until he slams his weapon to the ground. Once his
weapon gets stuck, slash it three times. Beat the orcs entering the grounds
to regain hearts.

Use Isidur to take out the orcs and destroy the lava rocks. Jump across the
platform. Continue by jumping up the bars and shimmy to the right. Destroy
the boulder to reveal the ramp. Switch to Elrond to jump higher and push
the boulder below. Switch back to Isildur and destroy the rocks again.
Continue jumping across and just take out the last batch of orcs in front
of the gate. On the next screen, just cross the bridge.


=============================
______ C02 | Chapter 2 ______
______ The Black Rider ______
=============================

Follow the clear studs as your waypoint. Continue down the path to the

up the debris by pressing Circle, then throw it at the bird. Continue
forward.

Switch to Sam, press Circle in front of the digsite. Dig up the rock and

bird. Cross the river. Switch to Sam and grow the plant. Move forward.

As Gandalf, mash Square to repel Saruman's magic. Avoid his fireballs by
moving from left to right. Wait for his jump, then jump up before he lands
to avoid the shockwaves, he will do this multiple times. Once he's tired,
press Circle to lift him up the smash him to a statue. 

Smash all the rocks and plants, then press Circle to grab the parts and
place them in your inventory. Put all three parts in the checkered part of
the boulder, then push the boulder afterwards. Move forward.

fruit then throw it at the owl. Switch to Sam and grow a plant. Walk up the
ramp and walk across the flower. Switch to Merry, go down to the fishing

treehole and crawl under. Pick up the fruit and throw it at the bird. Exit
to the background.

During the chase, avoid the logs and the riders while collecting studs and
plants. 

Continue down the path following the stud trails. You'll reach the Prancing
Pony, there is an arrow waypoint in front of it's door, then talk to the
guy outside to start a quest.

From the Prancing Pony's entrance, head to the upper right area to find the
Blacksmith's Shop. Get the Blacksmith Design inside the center of the
house. Bring it to the shelf located in the upper left corner of the house.

with Aragorn's torch. Second, use Sam to build a bonfire on the left area
close to where the wagon was before. Light up the torch and hit another
one. Next, there are 3 rocks on the grounds. Pick one, throw it at any of
the vines in the side areas, then pick up the torch that drops to the
ground. Light up and fire away. Repeat this for the last few enemies.

As Arwen, simply follow the stud trails on the next two sequences to

themselves in the ground. Approach the tentacle and hit it with your melee
attacks, do this four times. As you can see in the video below, it's pretty
hard to hit the tentacles if they land near the water so just stay patient
and wait until it lands far from the water. Once The Watcher shows its
head, pick up Gimli and throw him at the monster's face. Then shoot the
exposed face with an arrow. Do this twice.

spider, and you need to get Frodo's sword Sting to hit it. Once Shelob is
afraid, stand in front and press Circle, then follow the button prompts.
Beat the spider minions afterwards. If you lose the phial and sword, just
grab them somewhere in the screen. If Shelob sticks at the background
shooting webs at you, throw the phial at it by holding Square then
releasing. Near the end, you will lose the phial and the sword, go to the
background area, smash the glowing web to reveal the phial, pick it up,
rinse and repeat.

flood towards you, go to the sides of the room to avoid this. Build the
platforms from the skull debris and hit him again. On the last part, you
need to build four platforms. Jump over to the platform where the King is
near and slice him with Aragorn. Quickly jump to another platform to avoid
his counter-swipe after you hit him. Do this 3 more times.

3 times. It will recover and you need to wait until it bangs its head
again. Rinse and repeat.

Stand at the baiting platform, wait until the Witch-King strikes, jump away
to avoid the strike, then hit him when his weapon gets stuck. You need to
do this 2 more times, there is another platform you need to build on the
right and another one hidden by smashing the items on the lower left area.

screen. Build the platform, bait the troll, wait until he attacks, jump
away to escape and his weapon will get stuck. Next destroy the rocks that
were thrown by the catapults, build the platform, then bait the troll
again. Some red morgul blocks will drop down, use Aragorn to smash them and
build another platform, then bait again.

Wait until the Nazgul's dragon looks up and reveals the target on it's
chest, shoot it with Legolas.

Head to the left area, shoot the targets on the shoulders of the troll.
Build a hatch using the rocks that the troll has smashed, use a small
character to enter the hatch. Stand on the circle at the edge of the ledge,
jump up to the troll and keep hitting it. 

Same thing here, hit the Nazgul's dragon in the chest once the target shows
up. For the armored troll, wait until it gets exhausted, then use Aragorn

off, go to the leftmost side and build objects using the destroyed rocks
from the troll. Shoot the 3 targets to reveal the jumping bars, jump up to
the ledge above, hit the rocks and build the baiting floor. Bait the troll,
jump away before he hits you, then jump and walk across the troll's chain
when it gets stuck, shoot him to end the battle. 

Switch to Frodo and follow the studs to the final chapter.

========================
__ C18 | Chapter 18 ____
______ Mount Doom ______
========================

Walk up, break the two brown boxes below the ledge, build a ramp, then walk
up ahead. Frodo can't jump here, so use Sam to jump across the island in
the lava, then use the rope to pull down rocks so Frodo can walk across.
Have Frodo stand atop the first platform that you'll see after you walked
across the lava rocks. Switch to Sam, jump up the bars, pull yourself up to
the very top, use the rope to climb up the ledge, stand atop the platform
on the ledge to make Frodo's platform go up, walk across using Frodo. 

Use Frodo's phial to light up the dark cave, push the rock inside, use Sam 
to dig a rock, throw the rock at the target above, cross the rocks to the 
next area.

Avoid the burning flames, then use Sam to climb up the bars, walk across
the lava rocks as Frodo. Smash the objects blocking the cave, cross
the cave using Frodo, use Sam to pull down the rocks above, cross the rocks
again. Make Frodo stand on the platform at the right, use Sam to jump up
the middle rock and then to the left platform to elevate Frodo. Use Frodo
to walk at the plank on the left, then fall down to the left platform to
make Sam go up. 

Use Sam to jump across, dig up and build a bridge forFrodo, then walk
across. 
Use Sam's rope to pull down a huge rock, then walk up. Smash the objects
near 
the slider, build a pillar, push the pillar to the left side, make Frodo 
stand at the right platform, use Sam to jump up the ledge above Frodo's 
platform on the right, use the rope to make it across the left platform,
wait
until Frodo moves to the top of the pillar, then push the pillar to the
right. 
Switch to Frodo, light up the cave, walk to the right, then smash the rock.

Switch to Sam, enter the hatch, go down the lava floor below. Use Frodo to 
enter the hatch as well, then go to Sam's area.

Simply pick up the rocks and throw them at Gollum. If one of the two
characters is being mauled by Gollum, switch to the other character and
smack Gollum with a stone.

The idea here is mash Square with Frodo when he is being attacked by
Gollum. Once he's not holding Frodo anymore, use Sam to smash Gollum. You
need to hit him with Sam to reduce his hearts. Each time he gets hit by
Sam, he brings Sam down to a lower level, just build the platforms, jump
up, rinse and repeat. For the final heart, once he lets go of Frodo, use
Frodo to walk all the way to the rightmost area and build a platform using
the silver bricks for Sam. Jump up and hit the schizo to end him.

Simply run down the path while avoiding the rocks blocking the way. 

Congratulations on finishing the main story!
