Feb 12, 1928. Luz, France: During the excavation of an old church, Adam found a scroll that has Templar symbols.

Adam deciphered it to show the location of the 4 rivers mentioned in the Book of Genesis: the Pishon, Gihon, Tigris and Euphrates. Where the rivers meet is the Gate of Eden.

March 24, 1928: With the funding of Clairvaux Corporation and skill of Professor Jacques Saint-Omair, they flew to the site and established a base camp at the Gate of Eden.


At the Gate of Eden

Gate of Eden:

Go forward and enter the cave. Climb down and go forward to talk to Evelyn. The plane left because of a sandstorm. Adam brought his cap and torch.

Evelyn gives a radio (seen at top right of screen). She says to see the professor who needs Adam's help. Adam comments that there is a strange device in front of the gate.

Find the professor:    Go left and climb the ramp at side of the gate. See a blocked side entrance.

Talk to the professor. He says that the strange device in front of the gate is missing some essential parts. He noted the rocks blocking the way to a tunnel.


Go back in front of the gate and pass Digger the dog.

Talk to Digger - optional:    Go to the dog and talk to him.

Mix the explosives:    Go to bottom of screen and see a stand with small barrels at left. Use the stand to get a close up of the puzzle.

See 3 rows of small barrels. The top row has 4 barrels with labels-symbols at bottom of each barrel.

The symbols on the frame at left shows the amount of powder from each barrel at top row needed to make the explosives.

Study the amount released by the barrels on top to the middle row; then middle to bottom and finally from bottom row to the dynamite.

The top and bottom row release fixed amounts of powders.

Check the solution by using the lever right of the stand.

Top row releases fixed amounts of powder to the middle row: triangle -100; square splits (160) 80 to left and middle barrels; circle - 120 to middle barrel and diamond - 40.

So the middle barrel contains: left barrel = 100 triangle + 80 square; middle barrel = 80 square + 120 circle and right barrel has 40 diamond.

If we do the middle barrels to release: left barrel at half only; middle barrel at full and right barrel at half only = the bottom barrel at left will get 50 triangle + 40 square and right barrel will get 80 square + 120 circle + 20 diamond.

The bottom row barrels release: half of left barrel and quarter of right barrel.

So the end mixture has at left barrel: 25 triangle + 20 square and the right barrel: 20 triangle + 30 circle + 5 diamond.

Solution:    Turn the middle row: left barrel to half; middle barrel to full and right barrel to half.

Pull lever at right of the stand to make explosive. (Checkpoint.)

Blow up the rocks:    Go to the fire stand in front of left statue. Ignite torch and see Adam hold a lit torch.

Go back to the rock blocked opening by the professor.

Ignite the blocked tunnel. Run. Enter the tunnel.

Swinging blades:

Another blocked area is seen. Go there and Adam falls down to see a tunnel with swinging blades. Evelyn and professor are left behind. (Checkpoint.)

Run (shift + arrow key) through the tunnel with swinging blades when the blades are hidden by the wall while standing on opposite side of the hidden blade. If not successful, another chance from checkpoint will be given.
