When you pick up the Eye of Horus, turn right and swan dive down into the water in front of the entrance.

When you reach the wall trap, ignore it and keep running. If you see you are going to be crushed, stop for a moment and then pass through. Thinking how to set your run will only take you time. Repeat this with the other wall traps that you will encounter in this level.

Once inside the ruined throne room, pull the switch down and try to turn around and jump from it before the cut scene shows up. Just be sure you don't jump too early, otherwise the pillar won't stay up long enough.

When you reach this position you don't have to jump to the opposite side as there is only a switch for a secret. Instead, turn right and jump to the ledge as indicated.

When you reach this ledge, run up to the edge, stop and quickly press the Crouch button so that Lara drops down and hangs from it.

Before you reach the top of the ruined throne room, so that you can climb up easily, jump from here directly to the upper ledge opposite.

Once you climb up the ramp, ignore the mummy and head for the horizontal poles in front of you.

When you reach the top of the main room, make your way on both the left and the right side ledges by following the lower one of two sets of cracks on each wall. You will pass over some parts which will fall down, so, once you pull the switch, on your way back take the upper cracks.

Once in this hallway, just run forward, ignoring the blades. If you get cut and knocked down, keep pressing Jump to bounce off the floor easily.

Once at the bottom of the room with blades in the walls, pull the box out just a little and then climb onto it, continuing on your way.

When you reach this point, once you swing once and start to go back, hold the right key as you go over the crack with the blades. That will make Lara grab the next ledge for sure.

When you are at the top of the already mentioned room, ignore the grapple ring above. Instead, swan dive to the steps below right. You will loose some health.

Once in this hallway, when the blades start to slide into the wall, jump to the middle vertical structure. From there, wait for the wall trap to open and then jump through it, over the third vertical structure.

When you reach this point, keep running forward towards the blades and just roll under them when you get close. That way you won't lose any precious time.

This is a tricky jump, mainly because players do not know where to jump from. When the wall trap closes, wait just a moment, then start running. Leap from the yellow line on the floor and you will land on the vertical structure, just as the wall trap opens. From there, quickly jump to the other side.

Once you reach the room with three mummies on the floor, go left on the ledge next to the stairs and aim for the doorway below you. Roll over the edge and you will land in front of it, but you will loose some health.

Whilst in the hallway on your way to the switch that drops the last bridge down, stand as close to the left or right wall as you can. When the blade goes all the way in the other side, quickly jump up twice to climb on the ledge.
