Legend of Grimrock II

Wormbound Catacombs

Cemetery Sublevel 1

01 - Crossing the Bridge, Sign
The Bridge

It may seem easy to cross this bridge, but that's not how it seems. In fact, the way you cross it, will open the door for you.
In open to open the door, do the following:
- Start from the west side of the bridge
- fall down on the left side of the bridge
- turn left and walk under the bridge
- take the ladder up which leads back to the west side of the bridge
- fall down again on the left side of the bridge
- turn right and walk under the bridge
- climb up the ladder, back to the west side of the bridge.
- Now, cross the bridge so you're on the east side
- Face west
- Fall down on the left (south) part of the bridge
- Turn right (face north) and walk under the bridge
- climb up the ladder, back to the east side of the bridge
- Fall down on the left (south) part of the bridge
- Turn right (face north) and walk under the bridge
- climb up the ladder, back to the east side of the bridge
- Cross the bridge towards the west
- Turn and cross the bridge towards the east

In short: Go below the bridge but end up on your own side twice. Cross the bridge. Go twice below the bridge again. Cross the bridge back and forth.

24 - Spark Puzzle
In this room, you will find a button on the top level and exactly below is a lever.
The button will fire a spark . The lever will switch which door is opened (north or south).
The south door has a teleporter that rotates the spark 180 degrees so it goes back north.
The north teleporter will rotate the spark 90 degrees to the left into the receptacle which opens the west gate.
How to do this:
- Go to the bottom floor to make sure the north gate is opened
- Go to the top and press the button
- Immediately walk backward (fall down) and forward and flip the switch. (so the spark passed the north gate, and it will open the south gate now)
- when you see the light of the spark coming towards you again, flip the switch again to open the north gate.
With careful timing, the west door will open.

25 - Blooddrop Cap

26 - Crystal Flower

27 - Zombie Pit
The inner room is full with zombies. There are levers on the walls that all need to be flipped. This enables the teleporter that leads back up and releases the power gem.
But in order to get there, you will need to clear the zombie pit first. Note that you will not be able to protect your sides, you will alway have a side where enemies can attack you.
Hint: use a force shield to block your side, so you can focus on attacking the enemy in front of you.
Flip all the switches in this room to open the gates to the Power Gem, the teleporter to bring you back on top of the ledge, and the doors towards the stairs leading to Orul's Crypt

The long lasting truce was broken when Xarant and Orul Wormbound stole an egg from the nest and escaped to the Isle of Nex with the hatchling on board their airship.

The master rarely grants wishes, but for their great services, he granted the Wormbounds the gift of immortality.

These are the instructions to cross the bridge at 01
Picking up this scroll will open up the doors behind you, releasing 2 ancient skeletons at you, but allowing you to return to the center of the map.

54 - Realtime Puzzle
It's very difficult to see how this puzzle works, but once you know, it's easy. You will see pits in a circle around you, all are open except for one. You may have seen them move at one point, but not sure what triggers it. Well, time triggers it. The closed pit resembles the pointer of an hourglass, and the time it indicates is the time in the game. If you have the Time Piece, you can rest until it's 6 o'clock to get the Gear Key. And then rest till noon or midnight and the closed pit will allow you to cross into the next room.

55 - Gear Key
Opens door for Gear Keyhole at 56

56 - Gear Keyhole
Requires Gear Key at 55

57 - Bane
Picking up Bane will cause all the walls in this room and the adjacent room to open. Each wall contains a Rock Golem in this room, and a Fire Elemental in the other room.
Fighting the fire elementals is impossible, they just deal a huge blow to you once, you can probably not survive all four, so the best tactic is to drop down through the pits and regain your strength.

59 - Pit fall roomr
You fell here from the Cemetery level for the Pit & Sparkle Puzzle
