will tell you where
the first bomb should be setup.

       Inside the asteroid, a pedestal is found. Move towards it. Put the
plates on the
square indentations......

Alien Planet
       You are now on an alien planet. Go to the clearing. You'll find 3
'?'S. First go to
the one at the left. There is a alien space ship. Inside the ship,
there is a chest. Open it
and you can find a device. Then take the hanging wire. A ghost appear.
After the ghost

top. There are some
graves. Use shovel to dig the grave. Pick up the jawbone and tusk.
       Then go to the rightmost '?'. Use the device, it point at the dirt.
Use shovel to dig.
You can find a bracelet.
       Back to the dais. The ghost appear again. Dig the small hole. Brink
will fall into
the hole and die.
       You and Maggie will go down to the nexus. Maggie will go away, left
you work
alone. Walk around the room, you'll find a plate and a purple rod on
the ground.
Examine the purple rod, there are four sharps on it. It is the key to
open those sealed
doors. You try to enter the code, but you don't success because there
is no power.
       Go to the dark tunnel. Open the airlock. It is a command center. There
is a
glowing panel. A lifeless crystal is found. But you don't know what is
it for.
       Go to the ramp. Look Down from the edge. A loose lens is found. You
need to put
it onto the lens slot to repair the power machine. You notice there
are two panels. Use
the control panel, input the following code: 4 purple, 2 yellow and 1
red. Then use the
triangular button on the left. A robot come down and pick up the lens.
Input the code
again: 5 purple, 4 blue and 1 red. Use the triangular bottom again.
The robot will
repair the lens. Before you leave the power room, remove the loose
plate and take the
blue crystal.
       Now use the purple rod to open the door left to the dark tunnel. The
open and you
can go on the tram.

The Museum
       There is a weakened door beside the tram call. But you can't open it.
Then walk
outside. There is a fossil on the ground. Watch it and it is useful!
Go to water. A
monster eat a alien turtle. Examine the water, you can find a
underwater cave, but you
can't go there.
       Go to up. There is a strange device. Use it. If the lens (just under
the strange
device) is at right position, when you push the switch, a crystal
appear. Hold the switch
for one or two second, a light bridge is created. (You can see a beam
appear at the map
too)
       Go into the door. Pick the glowing crystal and the tablet. Look at all
the displays.
You'll learn more about life crystal and explosive canister.
       You'll find a red rod on the floor. There is a door. Go inside, you
find Maggie is
working there.
       Back to nexus. Use the life-crystal(the glowing crystal) on Brink.
Brink is revived.
Then use the red rod to open the door left to the column. But when you
press the tram
call, no tram appear! You know the glowing panel in command center is

control. You need to repair the lifeless crystal. You and Brink go to
the museum. Brink
will help you to open the weakened door. Inside the door is a pool of
life crystals! Pick
up the canister on the floor. And pick up some life crystals.
       Go to the water. The Monster eat turtle again. Brink run away. In
order to go to
the underwater cave, you must kill the monster. You examine the loose
bone. You find
you can rebuild the turtle. The head goes at the top left, with the
blunt (without bumps)
end of the head facing north east.  Attached to the head is a small,
thin neck bone with
the thinner end attaching to the head. That neck bone attaches to the
first (and largest)
set of fins, which look sort of bent forward, and have two very large
joints.  The
second and third set of arms come immediately afterward, moving
downward in size.  
After that is back/rib bone section, followed by the pelvis, then a
thick, large bone,
which attaches to the tail, the pointed end of which faces lower
right. Put the canister
into the turtle, and apply the life crystal. The monster will be
killed by the "turtle
bomb". You can go to the cave now. (If you still don't understand,
check the fossil)
       In the cave, you can find an orange rod and plate.

The Plateau
       Use the orange rod to open the door right to the dark tunnel. Walk
along the path.
There is a crack on the path. Jump to the other side. Use shovel to
push the boulder to
form a bridge. Continue walking. You can see another strange device.
Adjust the lens
and create the light bridge. Then walk across the water fall and enter
the crevice. In the
cave you can find a blue crystal. Then go to the plateau behind the
light bridge. A
monkey-liked creature (critter) steal a part of the door. You need to
find it. Pick up the
cover, rib, dowel and rod on the floor. Use dowel on the wheel-liked
thing's hole. Then
use the pole on the pin. And then use the rib on the hook. Finally put
the rod on the
cage to form an trap. Walk to the hole in the upper right part of the
screen, and search
through the holes until the little critter runs out.  Taking care NOT
to come too close,
move downward and left, back around the wheel shape and up again once
you pass it.  
Move right and scare the creature in that direction.  He will walk
right into the trap.  
Use the bracelet on the critter, then let him go.  Use your shovel on
the cave a little to
the left of you, widening it enough for you to enter. Go inside and
use the device.  
There will now appear an indicated spot by the device.  Dig there to
retrieve the
machine part. ( remember to take the rod with you.)
       Back to the sealed door. Use machine part and the cover on the panel.
The door
will open.
       Inside the room, pick up the plate can the green rod. Pick up the twin
scepters. Use
it on the faint light. A moon map appear. The blue scepter control the
small moon, the
gold control the large moon. You need to make the two moon eclipse. To
do this, move
the large moon to 2 o'clock position. Move the small moon between the
planet and the
large moon. If you don it right, a cutscene will appear.
       Push the bottom to open the door.
       Go to command center. Put the blue rod into the hole. Another 2
crystals appear.
Click on the lifeless crystal, you will notice that the crystal is a
little bit brighter. Slide
the crystals, watch the brightness carefully, until the crystal become
blue again.

Map spire
       Use the green rod to open the door beside to column. But the panel is
not working.
Use tusk to open the panel. Use wire on the panel and connect it to
the sparks. Now the
door will open.
       Get off from the tram. You notice that the map spire is quite a large
area. Here is a
brief map.

Tram - ledge -beach(with strange light)
       |
    Cavern - nest - water fall source - beach
       |
      Pit - map panel - light bridge.

Go to map panel. Enter the code of the tomb ( oh! You haven't been

shovel to dig it. A
hole appear. Go to inside the hole. Use the blue crystal on the hole.

Use a life crystal on the bone beside the door. Two dogs kill each
other. Use the
engraved rod o open the door. Go into the door and a pyramid in there.

       Maggie is kidnapped by a monster. You need Brink's help. Go outside.
Walk to
along the path. You find a light bridge. But this bridge is broken.
Open the panel.
There are a light source and 4 prisms. To repair it, it is easy. The
rule is: a light beam
only pass 2 crystal, all prisms should be use. So you should switch
the source, find out
which prism can deliver the light to other prisms. (Don't understand?
Never mind,
switch the light to the prism between the red and blue.)
       After create the light bridge, don't leave. Go to the cave interior.
You can see
Brink working there. Talk to him. But he won't help you. But you
