Ring 2: Twilight of The Gods

Short Review

Following the success of Ring: The Legend of The Niebelungen in 1998, Arxel Tribe releases Ring 2: Twilight of The Gods. The game changes from 1st person perspective adventure game into a 3rd person perspective adventure game. The game still maintain the pure adventure style from the first game. I do not experience any unnecessary fighting or jumping (not excessively like Tomb Raider kind of game). In fact there is no fighting sequence anywhere in the game.

The graphics are one of the best in the past 2 years. In fact, Ring II has better graphics than Microid's Syberia. All images within this walkthrough are examples of what kind of images you could expect inside the game. The sound and voice acting are superbly done, just like its predecessor. I give both graphics and sounds quality an A+.

The puzzles are range from easy to very difficult, especially on chapter 2 where you need to pay attention to your surrounding (yup.. it's the infamous Pixel Hunting kind of puzzle) and inside the dragon lair where you have to use your skill to navigate the character in a timely sequence action. These two are the toughest puzzles inside the game.

The control is a mix between keyboard and mouse control. You will have to use the mouse on the close up view of an item or location. As for movement, you will use your keyboard to navigate the main character. The downside of the game is its inventory system. You could only hold 1 item in your inventory. This could be very tedious in some of the puzzles that requires multiple items to solve it. I'm not sure what kind of thought inside the designer to design this kind of inventory system.

If you are looking for a good solid adventure game with great story and do not bothered with keyboard navigational system and the inventory system that could only hold 1 item, this is a perfect new year's treat for you.


The game is created based on the story of Siegfried. Experience his adventure as he slays dragon, giants, wins the love of Brunhilde, the Valkyrie, and his ultimate death in the Twilight of the Gods. He accepts the challenge of the Gods to prove that he is a worth successor of the Walsungs, the hero clan in Scandinavian folk lore.

Chapter Two: Pay attention to the glittering objects on the ground. These are the objects that he could get. Too bad, our character could only pick up one object at a time.



Chapter 1: The Slave in The Forge

Q: What should I do to start the fire?
Go straight to the bellow. Move the bellow up and down by holding the mouse. Walk to the wooden handle in front of the bellow. Swing it back and forth from left to right to operate the hammer. Unfortunately, you started the fire while doing that.

Q: How could I put out the fires?
Go to the crevice on the wall (the spot looks like an arch with a head statue on the top, close to the bellow). Pick up the water tank. First, put out the fire on a pile of log just beside the crevice. Fill up the water tank again on the crevice. Move as quickly as possible to the wall across the crevice. You might have to go back and forth between the fire and the crevice. Run as fast as possible and try to put out that fire. When the second fire out, the dwarf will ask you to fix the furnace.

Q: Where should I go to fix that furnace?

Q: How could I help the bull?
Pick up the pliers on the grass to the far left end of the tree. Use the pliers to cut the branches to free the bull. Pick up the rose beside it. Give the rose to the bull.

Q: How could I get the knife from the warrior's skeleton?
Stand in front of the bull. Start walking away from the bull toward the other end of the field. You will see the rope on the grass. Pick it up. Now walk back toward the bull. Stand in front of the warrior's skeleton and then go down. Combine the rope with the hook on the ground to make a grappling hook. Attach this hook to the branches where the skeleton is. Go back to the bull and pick up the leather on the grass in front of the branches where the bull used to be. Put the leather on the bull's neck. Pick up another red rose and place it near the end of rope of the grappling hook. Walk toward the skeleton and the bull will come and try to eat the red rose. Attach the hook to the bull. The bull will pull away the branches. Grab the dagger from the skeleton.

Climb to the top of the root where you saw the woman disappeared earlier. Use the knife to climb the cliff to unfold .....

Chapter 3: The Ghosts

Q: Where should I go now?
The woman will show you the way to freedom. Jump over the small river and walk away from her toward the dirt path. You will see a large spider web at the end of the path.

Q: What should I do with this long fireball tunnel?
Listen carefully to the sound of the crows. Run underneath the fireball as soon as you hear the crow produce a single call. Repeat this action until you reach the end of the tunnel. Hold your weapon and pick up the bowl from the statue. Go back to the pedestal and put the bowl on it.

Q: Where could I find the other triangle?
Go toward the left path toward the graveyards. Get the Mjolnir hammer from the statue. On the way back to the log, you will face couple of fire-spitting monsters. Throw it toward them before they're able to spit fireballs toward you. Place the hammer on the pedestal. The crows will pull you up to the sky again. This time they will drop you in front of a big locked door.

Q: How could I open the locked door?
Notice the two items on the door: the sliding puzzle lock and a tool to form a key piece for the sliding puzzle lock. Use the image below to help you solving the sliding puzzle lock. Then use the image from the lock to form the final key piece on the tool to the right of the lock. Use the key piece on the lock to open the door. Enter .....

Put it on the fire flower. Turn S3 twice. The mechanism will spit out a golden gem. Open the compartment and put the golden gem inside. This action will open a hidden passage. Enter the passage.

You can't. Pick up the stones on the cave floor just before you reach the end of the passage. Now look down to the deep chasm. Siegmund, the man with the red cloth, will appear again.
