the two Guards you saw before.
The girl seems threatened by two armed Guards
Prince jumps down:
Hey! There’s no need to get nasty. We can talk about this. OK, so you’re not a conversationalist.
Here you have to learn how to fight:
Press red for Gauntlet attacks

conversation, now don’t you?!
Hold RT to block the enemy’s sword attacks. When you’ve the first Guard has had enough he and the second one get the shivers and run off.
Prince: Yeah, and you can run too.
Now the girl approaches the Prince:
Why are you following me?
I’m not, I’m looking for Farah. I
heard you yelling.
Girl: You and your girlfriend should get out of here.
Prince: Girlfriend? Farah’s not my girlfriend. She’s my Donkey.
(NOTE: Farah turned into a Donkey now...?)
Girl: You’re risking your life for a Donkey?
Prince: She’s a good Donkey. That and she’s carrying a King’s Ransom in Gold...
Girl: Just get out of here. If they don’t see you with me you’ll be all right.
runs off again and jumps from wall to wall to a higher platform:
She runs off between two walls
This girl is a real acrobat
You want to time your advice better next
Follow the same climb tactics you saw the girl doing: first jump up twice to the right wall, then jump left-right and jump up twice to reach the upper ledge.
a deep voice is heard:
Elika, why do you run from me?
[NOTE: thus the Prince finds out Elika’s name]
Run along the left wall to the ledge where Elika is standing.
From there he will see Elika talking with some kind of Priest and another person who will soon run off.
left and wall run on your right to the next ledge. But this won’t work with
one simple run. You need a double run from wall to wall.
Start your wall run from here
in the middle press green again to jump to the left wall and when you
touch it press LAS to reach the opposite ledge.
Higher up a person appears and Elika shouts:
No he’s nothing to do with this, no!
that moment the whole ledge collapses like with an earthquake and the Prince is
falling down into a pit followed by two big boulders above his head.
The Prince tumbles down
then this unbelievable Magic appears: Elika suddenly turns vibrating blue, and
flies after the falling Prince, grabbing his hand and pulling him up.
Elika turns electric blue
She grabs the Prince’s hand
And she pulls him all the way up
How did you...?
Elika faints though and the Prince takes her in his arms: Whoa, I’ve got you. Guards higher up are shouting: They're moving!
The Prince carries Elika around the passage
At the other end Elika wakes up:
You really can put me down now
the opposite side an armed Guard commands: Release
Prince: I’ve lost my Donkey, fallen down a cliff and had a rock dropped on me. I am not in a good mood.
The fight with this Guard will be given hints and eventually he will run off too.
Elika was watching this from the ledge above.
Prince: Do you think you’re up to running? Well where is that Temple?
Elika: You go, I’ll follow.
From this moment on Elika is the Prince’s right hand, assistant and Guardian Angel. She will follow and help him everywhere with her magical powers.
Before going any further press LT to talk to Elika.
She shows a ledge and says:
We need to go this way
Do you often drop out of the sky on to
men? I mean you’re a good looking girl and everything, obviously pretty high
maintenance, but you shouldn’t need to go. Throwing yourself off cliffs onto
men. How can you suddenly develop powers from nowhere?
Elika: I don’t know. No one’s had these powers for centuries. I don’t know why I was chosen.
the ledge Elika has pointed and she will follow you. There are a number of jumps
from ledge to ledge and wall runs to do. Whenever the Prince takes a wrong move
and is about to drop dead Elika will turn electric blue again and pull him out.
Elika is the Guardian Angel of the Prince of Persia!
a few more ledges you’ll meet another Guard down below addressing himself to
Hey, stop there, we mean you no harm. You will not stand between us and the Princess!
Prince: What Princess? (turning to Elika) Are you a Princess?
The Prince is completely astonished
the Guard and the man we saw in the Intro is appearing on a higher ledge:
Elika! It is finished! You cannot return!
goes on: Why do you run? There is nowhere
Prince to Elika: This guy doesn’t give up. I hope you’re good with heights.
You’re both standing on a high ledge. Hang from the ledge and press RT to grip fall down the wall.
This way you won’t get hurt
The Temple, there. Under the tree.
She runs off to the entrance.
Prince: You guys worship a tree?
Elika runs to the Temple’s entrance
The Temple under a giant tree
