How to Play
Navigate through the temple and avoid assorted hazards. Collect various memorabilia items along the way.
Starting the Game
Select anywhere on the welcome screen to begin.
Pick a character from the 3 protagonists of the movie (Sadie, Noah, and Dudley).
Your Web browser automatically saves your game progress.
If you’ve played the game before, it will prompt you if you want to pick up where you last started.
Use the arrow keys to move.
Although the game might load in touchscreen devices, its controls were optimized for desktops with keyboards.
On the upper left corner is the zoom button. Use this to zoom in or out of the playing field.
On the upper right are two buttons:
The reset button starts the level all over again.
The pause button pauses the game and opens the pause menu. On the pause menu are 8 options
Play button: resumes the game
Help button: opens up the help screen
Sound button: toggles the game audio
X button: exits the game
Trophy button: Shows the achievements you’ve unlocked
Treasure button: Shows your collectibles inventory
Map button: Shows the levels of the game, including those you’ve yet to unlock.
The lower left corner shows you the name of your player character and how many pieces of the game’s two artifacts (the Silver Monkey and the Pendant of Life) that you’ve collected.
Next to that is a compass that shows you the directions you need to go if you ever feel confused.
Your goal is to reach the end of the puzzle.
You can only move one square at a time.
Collect various items related to the original show.
There are 13 levels in this game.
You start off with only one game unlocked.
You must clear one level to play the next.
If you want to replay a different level, select the map button to open the level screen.
The penultimate level, Level 12, is unique in that it is timed.
You have 4 minutes to clear the level.
Features, obstacles and hazards
Floor switches are often the only way to remove various obstacles like pillars and temple guards.
You can activate floor switches by stepping on them or by pushing a block on top of them.
Some switches activate once, while others revert when they’re not pushed down.
Usually, a permanent switch will be one that activates the trap door for the temple guard.
If there are large blocks you need to push in the level with switches, it’s a sign that some of them need a block to hold them down
Unlike floor switches, key switches remain active when you turn them on.
To unlock a key switch, you must first collect a key.
You will automatically push blocks if they stand in your way by moving in front of them.
Blocks are useful in keeping switches pressed.
By the time you get into the temple (Level 7), you can push the blocks toward ledges to get rid of them.
Be careful to keep the amount of blocks you need to press down on any of the floor switches.
Temple Guards and Snakes
Avoid them both.
Temple guards will automatically chase you if you appear in front of them.
To avoid them, pass them from behind.
Selecting a switch which drops them is one way to stop a temple guard.
Snakes will strike you if you’re one tile away from them, but can’t reach you if you’re two tiles away.
Like with the temple guards, they cannot attack you if you stand behind them.
Snakes only attack what is directly in front of them. They do not attack you if you are one tile away but are in a different direction than the direction they are facing.
Tiles with a lot of cracks will collapse if you step on them.
Tiles with a few cracks can be stepped on exactly one.
They gain more cracks when stepped on and become a hazard after.
As a result, partially cracked tiles are a tactical hazard as they are only available once.
You would need to avoid doubling back if you ever need to pass through these tiles.
Some tiles will fall apart shortly after you step on them!
You cannot stay in a quicksand square for very long.
Because of its sticky nature, you need to press twice to get out before sinking.
The key to large areas of quicksand is to keep moving.

Two halves of the Pendant of Life.
Tips and Tricks
Be careful when you move.
One wrong step can send you falling or moving the block to a suboptimal position.
Sometimes, you must solve specific puzzles in the right order to get to the end of a level. Missteps can complicate that.
