View Full Version : Doomsday's dungeons

I am trying to make the jump from the balcony to the center support. The w/t says it is a difficult but possible jump. Iv'e been trying off and on for about a week but no luck yet. Does anybody know the trick to it?
I actually HAD a savegame before making that jump (a screenie would come in handy now but a different level is now installed :( in my trle...
anyway, i remember Lara's position (notice when she takes the position, the camera starts on her right side and as she moves back, the camera shifts to her back). The right position for me (there may be other possible ones) was at an angle when the camera is facing her back and she's in a straight line looking at the small gap and her left side is partially covered by the column behind her. Running jump and slight midair right turn (not too much or she bumps the overhang, i think) and she grabs the gap to shimmy left. Good luck.

I had Lara lined up with the small gap, then stepped back from the edge a bit (I think) and then jumped with grab so she would not bang her head on the sloping ceiling. It did take a while to get it just right.:)

Thanks Drew & Boo! I made it (finally) and couldn't stop till I finished. Now I have some questions about Imhotep 1 and 2. Are either of you playing them yet?
Played 1. Been awhile tho. Will play 2 soon.

Hey guys - I'm playing Doomsday - I got those skeletons to break open a box, do they have to do more than one ??? (I'm "dying" trying to find out...) where's the WT ???

Ok Drew, I have a question on the first. I climbed up in the crawl space and got the golden skull and medipak. I pulled the switch by the pedistal and went into the hole in the wall, but when I go out side I can't get out of the gate to get the crowbar.
Junojim...I think the walkthrough come with the game files for doomsday.
@JJ, hmm...i just played Doomsday Dungeons (DD) a few weeks back but I can't seem to recall skeletons breaking some boxes? Are you playing Castle Doomsday (CD, first release)? Now my memory is really a blur...but this i know for a fact: the walkt of CD is in another download link at Data's site. Ask her for the URL. The walkt of DD is in a separate downloadable zip file. I don't know if LCO's RTP version of these two levels include the walkts. If not, easiest way is to go to my page where the walkt's (hosted links) are for these levels. Tina's walkts seem very clear and spelled-out. Good luck!
@ Dav, don't bother with that crowbar and invisible gate. Palo will tell you just as well that that's a trick (one of a couple :D
If you'd gone on the secret alcove/crawlspace above and got the skull and a "clue note" (search well above as I seem to recall two passages up there, one is opened by the jump lever, i think), you should be able to open a sunken floor in the middle amidst the electric beams and the door to let you go to the next room --- retracting columns puzzle.

Oooooh yes, I found 'em - they're .txt files a mile wide, but I can reformat 'em in Word... Thanks !!!
Thanks to you too, Drew, who is writing at the same time I am - LOL !!! Your walks pasted right into Word, no prob - Thanks !!!
D@mn !!! I just read the walk - my first instinct was correct !!! I thought I was so clever to jump into a pit, and shoot those skeletons into the flaming pit on the other side - but then, didn't go far enough to lower the spikes. THEN, I spent an hour trying to grt the skeletons to break a box, without getting killed too badly - oh well, reminds me of the key behind the jeep (that I looked for for an hour) in Saudi Arabia... back to the game...
LOL, yea, JJ , no sooner than when i logged off an email notification of a reply came in :D Ok, happy raiding.
