---------------------I. BASIC STORY:--------------------

You are Sir Daniel Fortesque, the leader of the army which defeated the 
evil warlock, Zorak.  Although you went down in history as the slayer, 
the truth was that you were the first to die by an arrow in the first attack.  
The body of Zorak was never found and he returns now.  Bringing the dead 
back to life to serve in his unholy army, he incidentally awakens you.  
You now have a chance to earn yourself a place in the Hall of Heroes.
The adventure begins.

--------------------II. BASIC GAMEPLAY:------------------

My only complaint about this game is the camera angle.  
There is no option for an active camera.  You get used to it though.

	A. BUTTONS:	These settings can be changed.

Square - charge attack or to throw certain weapons.
X - regular attack.
Triangle - shield, dash when already running.
O (Circle) - Jump.
Left Button - n/a
Right Button - n/a
Left2 Button - turn camera to right.
Right2 Button - turn camera to left.

	B. MOVES (not in one button):

Dash - press forward (up) twice quickly.
Long Jump - dash and jump   


You can't swim so avoid deep water.
Fire WILL hurt you even though you are just a pile of bones (don't ask me).
If you see an off coloured wall or a barrel try breaking it with you hammer.
Read the books! They usually give away all of the secrets and help you to 
know what you should be trying to accomplish.

---------------III. QUICK REFERENCE SECTION--------------------

	A. RUNES: Used to open doors, gates, etc. 
			Place them in the hand of corresponding colour.

-------------------IV. WALKTHROUGH---------------------


After you have a club or the war hammer, return here and break the off-
coloured wall that you may have noticed earlier.  Inside is some treasure.
Runes: Yellow (Star)
Life Bottle: 1


Ok, I'm writing this because some of my friends had a hard time getting 
out of here for some reason.  All you have to do is stand on the golden 
circle where you came in and you will be given the option to leave.  
Very simple. 
Each time that you come here you will gain a new item or some treasure. 


This place is pretty simple, to get the life bottle, hit the angel statue 
the gate in which ever direction she is facing will open.  Do the same for 
the chalice.
To get the treasure inside the fence by the big door get onto the ledge 
behind the crypts and inch your way along.  Towards the end, just before 
the bridge you will find the copper shield.


First of all, you don't really want to open those boxes with the skull 
and crossbones.
Its a bomb.
Walk past the lava and when up on the path to the left, jump down to 
the area behind the three boulders blocking the archway.  You will get 
the club here and then can proceed into the witches cave. Inside, break 
the bookcase with your club, light the club on fire and go to the room 
with the cages.  Light the altar in the center by pounding it with your 
club. This will open the doors and you can collect your chalice, an 
energy vial, the witch talisman, and some treasure.
Return to the outside and brave the hill.  You can duck into the stairs 
cut along the way but there is some treasure along the main path if you 
care to collect it.  You can break the boulders with your club or shield, 
this will damage your shield but you periodically find more shields on the 
way up.  The exit is right there at the top.
As you are working your way up the hill note that you can smash the small 
boulders lying around to receive something like three energy vials.  
Also note that the red boulders cannot be blocked by a shield, 
they will push you.


Watch out for the little guys with no torches, they will steal your 
weapons which you can reclaim if you kill the little guys or will lose 
if the guy gets away.
You start out in the chapel and need to break the grave covers with 
your club.  Fall down inside the one that shines and your on your way.  
Break the glass with your club and there are a series of tunnels.  
To your left is a tunnel with the green (earth) rune and an energy vial.  
The floors here will colapse when you collect the items so run back quickly.
Skip the right tunnel for now and push on ahead at the end you will use 
the green rune.
In this room is a door which you need the red (chaos) rune for and a 
staircase.  Proceed up the staircase.  WATCH OUT FOR THAT LITTLE GUY! and 
there is a life refill station here.
Proceed through the door to get the blue rune and the red rune through 
the next door.  This is the organ room and there are two energy vials 
here.  Leave for now, and exit the stainglass window room through the 
gate which leads back into the chapel.
Go back down into the tunnels and take the right tunnel this time.  
Use your blue rune and collect the energy vial and then the sheet music.
Go north again and find the organ player again.  Give the music sheet to 
the organ player and this will open a secret door giving you the chalice 
and some treasure.  Go back to the room where you needed the red rune below 
and use it.  Go down these steps and push the burning altar under the frozen 
heart.  You can then proceed back upstairs to defeat the stained glass demon. 

GLASS DEMON, use your crossbow and when he raises himself up and his heart 
comes out of his chest, blast away.  Don't linger too long or he will cover 
you in glass.  
In general try to stay on the opposite side of the room from him so that 
you can have a clear shot at him and can avoid the shards that he tosses 
at you.
Should you defeat him you will gain the skull key.  This will enable you 
to open the big door in the graveyard.


Same thing as the first time almost, just backwards.  First thing is the 
secret area, wait for a coffin to float under the bridge and then stand 
in the middle of the bridge.  If you time it correctly you will be able 
to ride the coffin to the secret area. 
Along the way here in the part of the level you've already been through 
you will find the silver shield.  For what its worth to say, you can 
smash the disembodied hands with your hammer and receive a coin.
When you see it come up on your left jump up to receive some treasure 
and an energy vial.  To get to the life refill station, jump onto the 
ledge above the big door and slowly inch your way along behind the crypts.  
Now you can open the big door using the skull key.  
After you do so, go through to the top of the hill and get the yellow 
(star) rune to open the gate. The chalice is located inside.  Watch 
out for large zombies dropping from the ceiling.
Inside you will go through some caves which will lead you to cliffs 
outside.  On these cliffs (there are three) there are large stone blocks 
which you will need to push into the stream to fill the break in the bridge. 
Return to the bridge and face the Graveyard Guardians.

GRAVEYARD GUARDIANS, they are shadow dogs which run around and occasionally 
materialize.  When they do, pound 'em with your hammer.  Charging it up and 
waiting for them works well.
When you're done you will be able to dash using the triangle button.
From here you can either go to the Enchanted Earth for the Ant's Nest or 
to Scarecrow Fields.

	G. The Enchanted Earth/ANT'S NEST:

Ok, this place just plain sucks.  Well, the first thing to do here is summon 
the witch at the cauldron using the talisman.  If you accept her mission she 
will shrink you and send you to retrieve 7 pieces of amber from the ants nest.
When you go there you need to save the little faerie guys as well as collect 
the pieces of amber.  The little faerie guy has a really cool voice.
The first thing that you find is a portal which is closed by a white filmy 
light.  Go back towards the entrance and find a circular weblike covering of 
a cave entrance, break it with your hammer.  You will save the first faerie 
and he will open the portal for you. 
Once inside the misery really begins.  All I can say is that you'll figure it 
out but it takes a lot of time.  You should kill all of the larvae as they 
will give you money or amber.  
The little fairies aren't too terribly hard to find.  There are a couple 
toward the end of the level which are very close to each other.
At the end of the level you will face the queen ant (spider?)

QUEEN ANT, she's not too difficult but it's a bitch doing it all again 
when you die.  Anyway, just avoid her shots, kill the soldier ants, and 
shoot her stomach when she rears up to call boulders down on you. REMEMBER 
It takes forever if you have to use the throwing daggers.

Upon your completion of these missions you will receive the chicken 
drumstick from the witch and will be transported to the Hall of Heroes by 
the faerie guy.

At first that's all that you can really do here.
There is no chalice for the Ant's Nest.


A pretty straightforward level.  Just remember not to stand in the corn 
for long.
You can kill the scarecrows with your broadsword, especially if it has 
been enchanted.
You will need to kill them.
If you want to move a cart hit it with your hammer from the side.  
When you get to the green rune gate you will have to fight a metal trog 
armour.  To kill it shoot the head with your crossbow, duck between its 
legs when it gets too close and then shoot the driver.  
You will get the blue rune for defeating him.  Take it back to the house 
where you came in.
Inside you will find a club and the green rune.  Take it back to the 
spot where you fought the metal trog armour.  Enter the next pen and 
fight again to win the red rune.  This one breathes fire.
When you find the barn, just head past it and towards the windmill.  
Go through and into the mill, hide in the holes for safety.  Into the 
razors, to a life refill station, through the grain that's like quicksand, 
through another razor, and into the circle with the spinning floor.  
Run all the way until you are at the northernmost point of the circle 
and you will find the harvester part.
Take it all the way back to the barn.  Hit the cart and go through the 
hole in the wall. Bush the bail against the other box and jump up to the 
switch.  Hit it and the harvester will be lowered.  To activate it, place 
the harvester part in the harvester.  
It will break through the wall and will clear a path through the corn 
to the chalice, a life bottle and some cash, of course.  
Then run through all of the machinery again to get out.


Here's one that'll bug ya.  There is a tunnel on your right, inside you 
will find the blue rune. Exit and proceed forward and enter what looks to 
be a chicken coop.  Pumpkins are bouncing down the plank.  There is some 
treasure inside, an energy vial and a door to exit on the side.  Go back to 
the hut with the blue rune lock and open it.  Inside you need to run on the 
floor to raise it and you will receive an energy vial and the red rune.  
Take the rune and open the door.  To the left you will find another door 
which opens as you come to it, skip it and go to the next one.  Inside you 
will find the green rune.  Use it to go up the ramp of the large pillar in 
the middle of the stage.  At the top you will get the yellow rune and find 
the sliver shield.  You will see a small house with a rounded wall, its 
really a boulder and you can smash it with your hammer.
Enter the house and you will come out the door at the bottom where you 
started.  Go around to the left and enter the first door.  Cross the 
mushrooms and open the yellow gate.
Here you will have to fight a bunch of tendrils coming out of the ground 
to claim the time rune.  To lower the main stalk kill the tendrils.  
Placing the white (time) rune in the hand will open both doors.  To the 
right you will find two energy vials and alot of tendrils.  You will come 
to a T in the road.  To the right is the exit and to the left 
you wrap back around to the time rune arena.  
Proceed to the entrance of the level and find the tunnel you saw when you 
started.  When you find the gargoyle merchant, break the wall 
to the right of him.  It's a long tunnel and you will find the 
chalice and a life refill.  
Now head back to the exit.


Use your talisman to summon a witch at the cauldron and she will 
tell you to kill the big pumpkin.  Chop all of the pods and then waste 
the big pumpkin.  Its really easy.  Then go back to the witch and she 
will give you a dragon gem.  To find the chalice jump into the well near 
the entrance of the level.  You will find a box of treasure and two 
energy vials as well.

BIG PUMPKIN, the spears do an excellent job.  
If you use the sword you may be too close to his tendrils.


*Do not kill any of the possessed villagers!*
To get the red rune from atop the fountain statue, find the stairs 
leading to the canal and hit the switch to turn off the water.  
Use the rune right there to open the library.
Go inside and break the bookcase to get the mold.  
If you have found the blue rune in one of the other houses take it 
to the house with the room having the orange button, barrels, and a 
fenced off area.  Use the rune, push a barrel onto the button and go 
Smash the barrels and go into the room on the right.  
Proceed up the stairs in this room and get the green rune.  
Take is back downstairs and use the green rune to open the fence gate. 
Hit the switch and return upstairs to get the major's bust (metal 
statue head).
After you have done this Zorak's guards will appear outside and 
you must proceed to annihilate them.
Go back outside and find the blacksmith's house.  
Place the mold in the fire and then the statue head.  
Jump up and down on the bellows for a while and you will have made the 
Take the crucifix to the church right across the street and place it 
on the crucifix shaped marking on the wall behind the large altar. 
This will open a secret cubby hole in the wall where you will get 
the safe key.
The gate in the lake area will then open and hence you should proceed.  
This will take you to the yard of the large house.  
Kill the guards here and climb on top of the shed roofs to get to the 
house's chimney.  Hop inside and hit the switch, this will open the gate 
for the exit.  Before leaving the house use the safe key on the purple 
safe to get the shadow artifact.
Leave, find the other gate, and kill a few more guards.  
Go back to the large house and walk through the hole in the stone fence 
wall to get the chalice and a life refill vial.  Then you can leave.
The exit is though the stone gate and across the wide bridge.


When you come back, go up the tree lifts to the giant bird's nest 
and collect the green rune take it to the corresponding gate and 
cross the stream.
Use the artifact to open the shadow gate.  Upon entering you are 
presented with a puzzle.
All I can say was that I stepped on the stones in this order: 
fire, earth, water and then air.  This releases the spirits and 
opens the cages.
It is here that you get the shadow talisman (mask) and later you 
will come back to collect the chalice.  Exit and watch out for 
those nasty demons!  Kill three of them and the gate will open 
back into the level.  All of the cages are now open.  Be sure
to enchant your sword.
You can now use the shadow talisman to turn off the red lasers 
preventing you from entering the area behind the pool.
Upon entering you will receive the yellow (star) talisman and 
will face two flying demons. 

WINGED DEMONS, they are nasty and will tilt the floor on which 
you stand.  The good old crossbow does the most effective job.  
The flaming crossbow ain't bad either.

After you beat them the platform raises, be sure to refill your 
life at the top.  Cross the bridges and fall into the hole.  
You will land back in the level in the seemingly useless hollow 
tree from before.
Kill the remaining demons and then return to the shadow dungeon 
to collect the chalice.
The broadsword works quite effectively against the demons.  
Use the yellow rune to exit.


1. First riddle - "At night they come without being fetched, 
by day the are lost without being stolen."
smash all of the star shaped trees.  The first is near the entrance,
the second is directly ahead of that against the gate.  The third is 
near the bell, hang a left in the maze and then zigzag to the graves 
and bell.  The fourth is across from that in the little area with the 
red grass shaped like a star and the bush that throws fireballs at you. 
Now return to the entrance of the maze and hang a right.
2. Second riddle - "I live for laughter, I live for the crowd, without 
it I am nothing." turn all of the metal faces toward the clown bush.  
To do so turn them all except the middle one until they are one turn 
away from facing the clown. 
Stand so that you can hit two at once and set them up and then the 
middle one. 
I recommend using your sword to turn the faces as you can hit them faster. 
To find this area, go into the maze, left, and around the corner to where 
the two grey brick walls are.  The left one will be gone.

3. Third riddle - "Face like a tree, skin like the sea, a great beast I be, 
yet vermin frighten me."
this one takes some figuring.  Find the octopus bush near the red
fish shaped grass.  Go back to the two grey stone walls that you saw 
in the maze, the second one will have opened and that is where you go.  
Anyway, kill the octopus plant and get the rune. 
Return to the entrance, use the rune, and get the mouse to follow you.  
Walk towards the elephant bush after you have killed all of the crazy Women.  
Be sure to avoid the grey cats (I know they look like rats). 

4. Fourth riddle - "I tolerate the moon and stars, I can't abide the sun, 
Banish me with torch light and you'll see me turn and run."
enter the new part of the maze and find the grate, it will be open
so drop inside.  You land in a room with a moon carved in the floor.  
Go outside and push all of the lamps next to the angel windows on the 
walls of the stone room.  Enter the room again and viola!

5. Final Puzzle - You now have to find your way out.  Go back to the 
new area of the maze and find the chess board.  Hit each piece to move 
it to its respective colored floor panel.
Each hit moves the piece one block in whichever direction.  You can 
move them diagonally.  Just wait till they get near where you want 
them to go.  The little green bastard is the worst one.  Use your hammer.

The chalice for this level is out in the open and cannot be missed.  
Its right next to the elephant bush.


There are four rooms of evil dead and crazies here that you must defeat.  
My best strategy was to use the broadsword and square-button-move 
constantly and just walk around to avoid the crazies from getting to 
close to you.  If you have a turbo button this helps immensely.  
In the third room which is circular in shape, just do as I said
before and walk around so that the crazies are following you and 
you'll have no  trouble.
In the fifth room is the mayor, some cash and the second dragon gem. 
oh yeah, and the chalice too. :)


The big fat knights can only be killed by being pushed into the muck. 
You must bring the ferryman eight lost souls.  To do so you must collect 
the eight golden helmets floating about.  Unfortunately, whenever you 
collect a helmet the bridges nearby will collapse.
There are six helmets on the islets and two after you open the gate.
You have to be REALLLLLLLY careful when jumping in this level.
Collect the red rune out on the islets, the chalice is here as well.  
You will use the red rune at a gate to the left of the gargoyle merchant, 
way to the right in a very general sense.
There is a life bottle to be gained as well as a box of treasure and 
two energy vials on the right after you come through the gate.
Be very careful as you approach the carts as the camera angle will 
suddenly change and it is easy to run off into the muck by accident.
Pass the carts and go down the slope to collect the last helmet.  
The carts will roll after you and then lots of soldiers will appear.  
Have fun (sarcasm). After you leave this area you must kill a number 
of small flying knights.  Collect the chalice and return to the ferryman.  
Give him the helmets and you're off.


Collect the red and green runes, watch out for the eyes and kill them 
when you can.  Return to the catwalks and find the sharp corner.  
It is a purple metal piece, there is a pole sticking up right in the 
middle of it.  Hit it 'cause its really a switch which will move the metal 
piece so that you can get onto the other catwalks.  Hit it twice because 
the first direction will take you to a dead end.  You will take your
runes and place them in crystal machines around the whirlpool which 
will stop the whirlpool.  There are three machines.
After you have stopped the whirlpool you can jump down inside and 
collect some treasure.  The chalice is down here.
My suggestion for killing the gatorguys is to crouch behind your 
shield and throw the axe.  You can also throw the chicken drumstick 
at them to turn them into roast chicken which you can use to refill 
your life bottles.
Once you get outside again you will find the yellow rune, and the 
switch that opens the gate and lots of eyes.
Return to the first island, enter the house and use the yellow rune 
to exit when you get back outside.


This level is pretty standard really.  
The first thing that you see is the chalice so return for it when you 
have filled it.  
Remember to go behind the waterfall.  You will have to take the two 
dragon gems that you already collected and place them in eyes of the 
dragon relief, not the holes in the wall.  

DRAGON, ok, he sticks his head out of the holes and you have to pound 
on the ground to knock rocks down from the ceiling.  And my god, he 
sounds just like Sean Connery in dragon heart.  Excuse me while I hurl!
Anyway, when you kill him you will get the dragon amour.  Return to the exit.

First off, you need to use the dragon amour to get through the fire gate.
When you pass through the fire gate there are four buttons on the floor 
which will open all of the cages except the chalice cage.  The fifth button 
is in the main hall in one of the cages that you just opened. Kill enough 
of the remaining baddies, collect the chalice and then use the yellow rune 
to exit the level.  Very simple.


First thing to do is get the chickens out of the fenced area and over to 
the pile of grain near the drawbridge.  Just walk behind them 'till they 
get there but don't scare them off.
Anyway, when they eat it all the drawbridge will be lowered.  
Upon getting up onto the wall, collect the red rune to the left.
Your second task here is to free the farmers.  To do so you must kill 
the demons before they sacrifice the three farmers.  Lightning does an 
excellent job of taking out the demons.  If you find that one of the 
demons always gets away, fall as you are using the lightning and quickly 
switch to your magic longbow and aim at him. 
You must put out the fires BEFORE freeing the farmers.  Use the hammer 
a few times on each fire.  Then, to release the farmers step on the button.  
This will also open the gates for you.  
*A note about lightning - once you use it up its gone for good*
If you go through the gate on the left you will find a pool of oil 
which you will cross later and the chalice on a parapet along with an 
energy vial.
The gate on the right leads to a wall where there are two energy vials.  
Further along are two more vials.  Now you can use the red rune on the 
gate at the steps below the walls. 
If you catch on fire crossing the bridge just equip the dragon amour 
and you'll be fine.
When you enter the kings chamber you learn that you must find his 
crown to summon his ghost. 
You must fall into the trap door in the floor, it has a yellow emblem 
on it.
Upon entering the nether regions of the castle you will find two doors.   
The door to the left houses the crown and the volcano's floodgate.  
The door on the right has the exit to the surface and a life refill 
Enter the king's chamber again and use the crown.
You are now  dropped to a large room where you must defeat two stone giants, 
hit the floodgate switch and escape within 2 minutes.

STONE GIANTS, to defeat the giants, equip the dragon amour and blow them 
off the edge.
Be sure to pick up the green rune.  

After you defeat the giants and kill a few
demons you will need to place it in the oil room across from the main 
entrance door.  It is on your right as you come out of the giants room.  
Now you need to collect the chalice and manage to escape.  Get the chalice 
and then cross the oil pool (purple) below the chalice parapet.
Thankfully, if you do die attempting escape you will restart at the giants 
battle. When you do cross the spot where the oil was you need to hit the 
switch to release the boulder to fall onto the catapult so that it will 
break the wall.  You then need to jump on the catapult yourself.  If you 
are running low on time and life just leave the damn treasure.


**WARNING: This level WILL drive you mad!!** 
**Make sure that you have full life vials when you enter this level**

The crew skeletons are worthless so just avoid them and go for the officers. 
They're the ones wearing blue jackets.  Kill them and all of the lesser 
skeletons fall.  The blue rune is in the crow's nest with the first officer.
Before crossing the moving floor boards you will want to use the blue rune 
where you started out to open the door.  Inside you will find the yellow (star) 
rune, an energy vile and a gargoyle merchant.
If you fall into the holes where the floor boards are moving up and down 
you'll be alright because there is a lower room with some treasure.
When you get across to where the rolling barrels are use the yellow rune to 
open the door the next crow's nest.
To open the next door you need the red rune which is down to the right past 
the cannons.
You will have bounce across some nets and if you fall you will land in a room
with large barrels.  There are two hard-to-see exits from this room.  The 
first on the right will take you to two energy vials and the right will take 
you to another room with large cannons.  In some places you can duck.  For 
the last cannon run and then use your dash (triangle button while running).
Work your way past them and get an energy vial.  Taking the ramp up will 
bring you back to having to cross the nets again.
When you get across you can either continue via the swinging planks or the
moving window shutters.  If you cross the planks the camera angle is 
particularly bad and you will have to drop onto the moving windmill like 
machine.  If you miss you will either fall to your death or land on the 
bridges where you collected the two energy vials outside of the large 
barrel room. I suggest crossing the shutters.  If you do so you will find 
a life refill station. proceed to the right and you will fight a few of 
the crew.  If you kill them then the barrels will break and you can go 
after the officer.  Killing him will open the door.
Again I suggest using the run-around-hitting-the-square-button-like-
crazy-method for killing the crew.
You now can face the captain of the ship.  

GHOST CAPTAIN, to kill him you will need to light your club on fire to 
light the cannons.
Fire them continually at the captain.  
Kill the crew as they will come back to life.

To obtain the chalice, ride the windmill again and jump into the 
hanging cage, you will be taken up higher into the masts and will 
receive the chalice and two energy vials.  One to the left and one 
to the right.
To exit this precarious level return to where you fought the captain.


Down the right stairwell is the chalice.
That's all there is to this level.  It's a token level.
Use this level to refill your life bottles.


Go to the left and out into the small clocks.  
You will wrap around and be behind the butterfly.  
Hit the switch and grab the white (time) rune.
Get on top of the large clock by dash-jumping from one of the brain 
things on the right.  Walk up the ramp and use the white (time)
rune to remove the metal eyeball.  When you get to the next butterfly 
a clock will drop and you must adjust the large clock to open it.  
Note the time on this clock that drops and adjust the large one using 
the two buttons.  
Now pass through the butterfly gate and you will find a large spinning 
machine. Get up on the track around the machine and go off to the right.  
Well you've found the red rune in the middle of rolling clocks.
Get back on the track around the spinning machine and cross the bridge 
across from where you found the red rune.  From the butterfly it is the 
bridge on the left.
When you get there, there is a tube that you can jump up into to get to 
a higher level.  
Up here there is the chalice and a device which will shut off the 
electric force fields in the level. 
Only problem is that the shutoff only lasts for 3 seconds and the 
chalice is encased in some type of glass.
The green rune is also up here off to the left encased in a force 
field as well. Hit the gravestone with the skull on it which turns 
off the electricity and quickly also hit one of the laser funnels so 
that the path of the current is broken.  All electicity will now go 
off throughout the level until you turn it back on.  Collect the green 
rune to the left, go back to where you came in, walk to the butterfly 
on the right side and note the time on the clock that drops.
Get back up onto the large clock.  Adjust the time using the buttons 
to correspond with the butterfly's dropping clock time.  This will open 
the butterfly gate. Inside the force field will be gone and you can get 
the life bottle.  There is also a life refill station around the corner 
to the right.
Get back on top of the large clock and proceed north, you will need 
to open the butterfly gate again.
Proceed north across the bridge to the red rune door where you will 
find the train.
Here you will also find the green rune door so open it.
Push the straight arm of the machine until it points at the exit.  
Now jump on the arm and walk up to the train.
Jump on the spikey part of the train and you are on your way.
The train will stop and you can collect the blue rune to your left.  
Kill all of the guards.
Jump back on the train and it will back up.
Now open the blue door, and turn the machine so that the train faces 
the blue door and the straight arm faces the entrance to the room.  
Get on the train as before.
When you arrive at your destination, there is a life refill station 
to your left. If you go down the path in front of the track you will 
find a switch to open half of the exit level door.
The path behind the track leads to another switch which opens the other 
Get back on the train and now you can go for the chalice.  To the left 
of the chalice platform is a small house out in the darkness with two 
bags of gold on its roof.  To get to these, step off the edge onto the 
triangle shaped platform.
There is also a pillar to the left of where you found the green rune.  
According to JhonnyK, you can jump off and land there.  
I have had a hard time doing it so good luck.
Before you do that though you'll want to grab your chalice.  
To break the glass hit all of the laser funnels until they form a square 
and the beam will start up again and break the glass.  
I know it makes no sense but it works.

You now have all of the chalices, that makes twenty and you can now 
get the good ending.


The only thing here is the fight.  When you enter his chamber open the 
chests to the right and left of you.  To the right you will find the 
good lightning.  Using this will damage you but protect your army.  
Find the life refill station first then stand on the grey circle to 
call your army.  

SKELETAL ARMIES, you mustn't let your army perish or the game is over.  
When they turn yellow or red, they are about to die and need to be zapped 
with the good lightning.
There is no limit of uses for the good lightning so zap away!  
You'll get the hang of it.  
Just run around holding the X button and you should be alright.  
Keep an eye out for skeletons turning yellow or red and help them.  
After you win the skeleton battle all of your remaining skeletons 
will turn into energy vials, collect them quickly.  

SKELETAL HORSEMAN, when his shield is up you can't hurt him so just 
avoid him until he starts running around.  When he does, nail him with 
the magic longbow repeatedly.

ZORAK, he turns himself into a funny lizard-like creature.  
He has a force field about him most of the time.  Use you magic broadsword 
and run around him in circles.  Occasionally his shield will drop and he 
will rear up on his hind legs.  When he does so, chop away at him.  It will 
take some time and patience, remember to not get too close to him.

After you defeat him you will see a short FMV and then the credits roll.  
They're not bad because they show clips from the game as well as animation 
cells and designs from the conceptualizing of the game characters and moments.

----------------------V. Endings--------------------------

We have found two endings so far.  One where a bird carries Dan to his 
crypt and he lies down.  You will get this ending if you did not collect 
all of the chalices.
If you did collect them you will get the second ending.  
The FMV will be of Dan at the Hall of Heroes partying.
