SWIMMING ON THE
SURFACE: If Lara finds a deep
pool of water, she can jump in and
swim. Use the mouse or cursor keys
to move Lara around on the surface
of a pool. Press the jump key to
stroke forward. At the edge of the
water, press the UP cursor key and
press the action key to climb out.
: When swimming underwater,
Lara can hold her breath for about
a minute - any longer and she'll
become fish food.
To climb up drainpipes or ladders,
walk Lara up to the object and press
the UP cursor key to make Lara climb
onto the object. Then use the cursor
keys again to climb up or down and
Where the opportunity exists to
monkey swing from bar to bar to
cross a gap, position Lara under
the first bar and press the jump
key. When she's holding onto the
bar, press the UP cursor key to
monkey swing forward. Press the
jump key to dismount.
HAND OVER HAND:
To jump onto a zip wire, position
your character directly under it
and press the jump key. Use the
cursor keys to travel along the
rope. Press the duck key to tuck
your character's legs up to rest
or avoid objects.
AND SHIMMYING: To jump, press
the jump key. To jump in a certain
direction, use the cursor keys while
jumping. Jumps onto ledges or rails
over a great distance require a
jump and grab. To perform this jump,
press the jump key while pressing
the UP cursor key, release the jump
key, then at the apex of the jump
press and hold the action key until
Lara or Kurtis grabs the ledge.
You can then release the key. Use
the cursor keys to shimmy sideways
along the ledge. Press the UP cursor
key to climb up onto the ledge.
Press the action key to release
the grab. Once the grab is activated,
a grab bar appears onscreen to monitor
your character's energy. If the
grab bar runs out, the character's
grip will looses immediately.
GRAB BAR: Lara
and Kurtis are very fit and strong
but even they can't hang from ledges
indefinitely. When either one is
grabbing a ledge, a grab bar appears
onscreen. The bar will immediately
begin to decrease. If it's allowed
to run out completely, the grab
is released and the character lets
go of the ledge. the bar is automatically
refreshed with each grab.
LAST CHANCE GRAB:
If your character begins to slide
on the scenery, press the action
key to make the character grab before
falling to their doom.
THE ENVIRONMENT: Lara and Kurtis
interact with their worlds in different
ways. One example of this is opening
doors. Approach and stand by a door.
When you are near enough to open
it, a hand icon appears. Press the
action key to make your character
try and interact with it - in this
case by opening the door. You may
want Lara or Kurtis to climb through
windows or climb up onto boxes.
This is achieved by walking your
character up to the object. If the
character can climb up or squeeze
through the gap, he or she will
do so automatically.
