Current Mission - Reach the Abbot and Claim his Weapon for Your Own

Run forward to exit the tunnel, hang a left to find a scroll, but prepare to fight a mix of Ghoul’s and Gremlins, grab is your friend. After the fight, run forward and right. Hop into a covered area.

$$$item 3553

Run forward and hang a left, straight-ahead is another lovely scroll you can read if you feel so inclined. Head left and use your hook to pull down the drawbridge, cross over and deal with the gremlins that swamp you here.

Continue the way you were going and use the Stake Crank here then head through. Jump over and work your way up the tower’s linear grips and hook points.

$$$item 3554

Where you went left to get the gem, if you did, move right instead to continue up the tower and you’ll eventually reach the end of the level.


Objective: Finish the level after finding and destroying 100 breakable objects before the allotted time runs out

Holy Water Shield is your friend here, it will grant victory in this tough challenge. As will area attacks, they will destroy a lot around you in a short time. From the start exit and hit the objects to the left, run right and whack on a shield, taking out the wooden objects here before leaping into the covered archway (ignore the baddies).

Destroy the objects into the camera before moving forward and taking out the huge amount of wooden constructions here. Exit and take out the few here before leaping the gap, get a shield up if yours is down and yank the bridge down.

Run over, more wide attacks in here before renewing your shield and using the Stake Crank. The final few items are few here. Timing is tight, and a failure will likely require a full restart from the world map screen.
