Monastery - Level 9
This level is a medium
sized level that uses all four keys. You start out in a room that has a column moving
swiftly back and forth which just so happens to have sharp blades sticking out of the
sides. Make sure you don't get too close to it or you'll end up like the Ninjas on the
In this room you will notice four niches in the walls. Three of them
have a red curtain in them, with a light and a picture. In each of these niches is an
item. On the one on your side of the room, there is an Uzi. The other two are on the wall
with the moving column. Be careful not to get hit while you jump into these niches. In one
of the niches is a flash bomb, and in the other are shotgun shells. There is also a heat
seeker card in this room which is beside the door that takes the gold key. Wait until the
column is leaving, run in and get it. Stay close to the wall there and the column will not
harm you, then quickly run back out before you get sliced and diced. Now notice that the
fourth niche doesn't have anything in it. It's just wood, which is actually a hidden door.
Open the door and proceed in cautiously as there is a Ripper as well as possibly other
enemies in there waiting to pounce on you. Just start blasting the enemies with the Uzi to
clear this area.
Picture: This false wall opens into where
you get the red key.
You should see a waterfall to the left which
has the red key in it, a second Uzi, and a fortune cookie. As you continue, you will see
some Uzi clips near the torches. Further down you take a right and you will see a gas bomb
with a silver key door to your right. Just beyond the bomb is a Ninja and a Riot Gun. When
you kill the Ninja and drop down to grab the Riot Gun, you'll see a blocked passage to the
west. If you can see any enemies thru the slots here, shoot them now. Now head back to the
starting room with the moving column. Be sure to grab the medkits in this room is your
health is down.
Walk to the east side of this room and then turn south and run,
avoiding the moving column, into where the silver and red key doors are. Don't go through
the red key door just yet. You will want to try to clear the room before plunging in
there. There will be several enemies in there and you should minimize the damage you take
before entering this area. Here is a good way to kill these guys without getting hurt.
Open the door, and then shoot the enemies as soon as you see them, then quickly shut the
door to block their attacks. Repeat this as many times as you need to. This way you aren't
jumping right into a room with enemies surrounding you and you can't guard yourself from
their attacks. Another method is to use the gas bomb. Open the door and throw in the gas
bomb. Then shut the door and let the bomb take care of them. It might not kill all of
them, but it will damage the ones near the bomb which will help. As you enter the room,
you'll notice there are two doors that take keys. One of them takes a silver key and the
other takes a bronze key. There is also a gong in the room. If you shoot the gong, four
small doors will open which have some useful items in them. They contain Uzi clips, Sticky
Bombs, a medkit, and some shotgun shells. To the south you will see a small hallway, and
at the end of the hallway is an Uzi clip and grenade shells. To the right is a large door.
Open the door and turn left where you should see stairs going down. Watch for enemy
attackers as you head down the stairs. As you are going down the stairs, about halfway
there is a window which holds some missiles. Also on the other side of the steps you
should see a picture that has Uzi clips by it.
Picture: Shoot the gong and the four doors
open in this room.
Once you are at the bottom of the steps, go to
your left through a doorway and into a room with a statue in it and candles on a ledge
behind the statue. In this room is a Riot Gun, a couple medkits, and an Uzi. Now proceed
to the west and go up the small set of curving stairs. There is a ledge to the left and
right of the stairs as you are going up. To the right on the ledge are some shotgun
shells, and to the left are caltrops. Again, watch for enemies. To the east in this room
is a fortune cookie that you should grab. Now go to the west wall and turn right where you
should see a small room. In this room is a medkit and a Guardian Head. Go up the red
stairs that you can see in this room now. There are an Uzi clip and another medkit at the
top of these stairs.
Now open the door at the top of the stairs and go in and eliminate
any enemies. There are steps that lead down to a stage, and seats in between the steps. On
the stage is the silver key and a Missile Launcher. Grab them and get off the stage. To
the left of the stage you will see a tall red curtain to the west. If you walk through the
curtain, you will get some night vision goggles. Now go back up the steps toward the door.
If you turn north when you approach the painting, you'll see an Uzi clip and a smoke bomb
on a ledge. Jump up and grab them and exit this room.
Picture: The silver key.
Go back into the dojo room that had the
fortune cookie in it. When you reach the center of the training mat, turn left to the
north. You should see a hallway leading to another room. In this room there is a Ripper
Heart in the middle. Get the
heart and also the medkit in the room if needed. Continue walking northwest to an outside
area that has wooden poles that connect at the top, and kelvar armor hanging from the
center on a chain. Here is how to get that armor. On the brick wall to the west you will
see some Shurikens sticking in the wall. There is also some Shurikens on the wooden pole.
Jump onto the Shurikens in the brick wall until you are standing on the highest Shuriken.
Now jump as far as you can toward the armor. If executed properly, you should now have
Picture: You can reach the kevlar armor
Now go back to where you picked up the Ripper
Heart There are two doors you can see in this room. One of them takes the gold key and the
other takes the silver key. If you like you can go into the door that takes the silver key
but it is not needed in order to finish the level. Instead, lets go to another silver key
door. Go back into the dojo training room where you got the fortune cookie turn clear
around to the left and go down the stairs. Stay to the left and go back up the stairs to
the large door and get back into the room with the gong. Turn west and go up the ramp and
open the door that takes the silver key.
As soon as you open the door and walk through the doorway, there is
a small planter to the right that has a bonsai tree and a small Buddha in it. The gold key
is in this planter as well. If you need health or shotgun shells, you can go down the
hallway and turn left where you should see a fire providing light with health and shells
Picture: The gold key in stashed in this
Go back through the door that takes the silver
key to get into the room with the gong and go through the door that takes the red key
which is to the north. You should now be back into the starting room. Watch for the moving column and run past it.
Now walk west to the other end of the room where the gold key door is located. Arm
yourself with a Riot Gun or an Uzi and prepare to fight enemies close up. Once you open
the gold door, there should be some enemies close to you which will include at least a
Ninjas and a Guardian. Kill these and go up the steps. You should see a straight path
leading to a wall with a picture on it. If you need shotgun shells there are some to the
left in a small room. Go strait until you reach the picture and turn left where you will
see a grenade launcher and the bronze key on the floor.
Picture: The final key of this level lies
ahead of you.
Now go back to the starting room and go into
the door that takes the red key. Now open the door that takes the bronze key. There is a
Ninja in here so take care of him. In this room is armor, health, a Missile Launcher, and
shotgun shells. Now just push the switch to end the level. Now you're off to the next
level - Raider of the Lost Wang.
