Well of Ancestors – Part 1
is an extremely long and tedious Sublevel, but there is a Save Point at the end
of Part 1. Being the Sand Wraith with ever dropping Stamina you’ll have to act
very fast in this Part. You are facing a half round bay window in this area with
an opening on your right. Wall run applying the Chain on the torch to reach an

a wall run with your Chain to the following narrow beam while “God” and the
Prince are having an ongoing argument.
“God”: Ah... Once again you have denied us victory. How many times did I warn you that nothing good would come of pursuing that girl? You would not be in this situation if you had just stayed focused!
Sand Wraith: Enough! All you do is taunt. It is selfish. Could you not know what you are planning? Well, I know that I do not trust you.
“God”: And I am ashamed of a different need. I have nothing but noble intentions.
Sand Wraith: I understand now what it means to be noble and you are none of those things.
“God”: You self righteous bastard.
Sand Wraith: I have put up with you for entirely too long. Be silent! Let me finish my job and then we shall see what to do about you.
“God”: Oh Yes! I’ve forgotten who is really in charge.
up and walk to the end of the beam around the corner. Side jump using your Chain
on the bar to end up hanging on a chain.
Sliding down from the chain
down from the chain and drop down to a narrow beam whose end section is
crumbling. Pull up and walk on the small beam on your right. From here you can
jump to the opposite ledge.
Jump to the opposite ledge from the narrow beam

corner to end up on the next ledge.
Wall run with your Chain on the torch around the corner to the ledge
inside the room and smash sufficient jars to replenish your Stamina. Go outside
again on the ledge and notice a narrow beam sticking out of the wall on your
Notice the narrow beam
Jump to the beam (watch out, the end part of this beam is crumbling), drop down to a lower narrow beam and to the balcony below. You may also do a short wall run from the ledge and land on the balcony at once. This is faster but takes more skill! Either way, turn left and wall run on the right side while applying your Chain on two torches in a row to end up on the following ledge.
run from this ledge applying your Chain on the torch to reach the third ledge.
Wall run further to a narrow ledge, walk left till the end and drop down to the
ledge below. You
will be attacked by two Ghouls if you stay here whom you’d better avoid
because the wall attacks are dangerous on this small ledge (you may drop down
from the ledge). You
have two options here:
(only if you’re low on Stamina)
inside the room where a Shadow will throw arrows at you and quickly kill this
guy first. That will give you Sand to proceed and then kill more Ghouls coming
after you and restore your complete Stamina and fill your Sand Tanks. You can
easily kill them with wall attacks and stabbing when they’re lying down, or
applying your Chain Whirl.
(if you still have sufficient Stamina left)
the cave and promptly continue your series of wall runs. Either
way, wall run to your right to the last ledge. Turn around the corner, hang
down, suspend yourself in a vertical wall gap and slide down. Then drop down to
the cave below where you have two options again depending on your amount of
Stamina left. Either face the cave and defeat three Ghouls. An easy job and
you’ll be fully restored.
if you have plenty of Stamina left, skip the cave and turn around. Run to the
ledge and notice two bars in a row high up in front of you over the gap.
Run/jump and use your Chain on each bar to land on a crumbling full ledge.
Quickly wall run to your left applying the Chain on two successive torches to
end up on a narrow beam.
You’ll have to end up on the upper narrow beam
down to the lower narrow beam and then to the ledge underneath. Now
unleash all of your acrobatic tricks. Wall run to your right applying your Chain
4 times in a row on torches to end up on the next ledge. Run
inside the room and smash some jars for Health. Go out and notice a bar high up
across the gap. Run/jump and Chain swing to a ledge. Pull up and go to your
right. When going down the stairs you have two options once again.
for a next battle with 4 Ghouls. Easily done with wall attacks and stabbings and
you’ll get your precious Stamina restored.
you’re well on Stamina avoid these guys.

“God”: Listen, Prince, look around and we are in a well. But, do you hear water? Do you see, feel its moist embrace? Wow, I think it’s gone! I think the Vizier has drained it.
down to the ledge below and wall run on your right to another ledge. Go down the
stairs and make two more wall runs to land on a large central platform. Get rid
of sufficient Shadows and restore your Health Bar (they keep appearing). Press
[B3] repeatedly to get them down with your Chain Whirl.
Get these Shadows down with Chain Whirl
you are fully restored turn your back on the ever appearing Shadows and walk on
the narrow beam on your right. Jump to the vertical wall shaft where you can
suspend the Sand Wraith. Slide all the way down and drop down to the ledge

around and move to your right into a hallway where you can smash some jars for
Health in the corner. “God”: Tic-Toc,
left till a gap in the floor where a couple of saw blades are going up and down
in the left wall. You have to wall run on this side past the blades. There is no
need to go into slow motion since it goes easier this way:
Start your wall run when the first blade is halfway going down.
You’ll end up on an opposite narrow ledge of a turquoise color.
This part of the ledge will soon drop down
Feeling thirsty? Feeling dry? Oh...
am I distracting you? Mean
bully, teasing the Sand Wraith in need of water. The
first part of the turquoise ledge is crumbling, so quickly hang down (you may
have ended already hanging from it) and shimmy around the corner to your right
and drop down to the narrow ledge below. This ledge is also crumbling fast, so
pull up and walk left.
Quickly walk left on this crumbling ledge
backward to the opposite narrow ledge which you will be hanging down from. This
is a safe ledge, not crumbling. Shimmy to your right above the moving saw blade
and when the blade returns from the right side go into slow motion and drop down
to the horizontal wall groove below when the blade is moving back to the right.
This is the fastest and safest way.
right around the corner and pull up to the floor. Run
around the left corner where you can pass the 3 spinning saw half-blades but do
not go in slow motion. It is easier to start your run from the left side close to
the wall when the gap in the first blade is appearing. The 3 blades are
synchronized for this run.

Health. So you’re back in Business. Go
right and notice a red pole sticking out of the right wall? Jump and use your Chain
to land on a crumbling ledge. Immediately run up the wall on your right to
hang from a horizontal wall groove. Shimmy right and jump backward to a narrow
ledge. Drop down 3 times to lower narrow ledges.
right until you reach a full ledge and run left around the corner. Time
is precious, time is fleeting, time is something you have...
too little of.
the stairs and you may go into slow motion to get past the spinning saw blades.
in the corner you can smash some jars to restore your Health. However, be easy
on the jars and only smash one or two in front. If your next move fails you will
return and smash some more for a new trial. Act smart and you may repeat this up
to four times.
Now from here until the end of Part 1 there won’t be any Sand available
anymore for your fast dropping Stamina (no jars to smash and no enemies to
defeat), nor will there be any Checkpoint. So the message here is loud and
clear: ACT FAST!
not use slow motion with the many traps or you won’t make it till the end. I
will tell where to use one slow motion near the final trap, but do not
use it before. Left
you will find two horizontal spiky half-cylinders and a row of Dart Shooters
like you’ve seen before outside. There is a shutter on the left wall.
Notice a shutter on the left wall
for the arrows to be shot and then when the first cylinder goes flat run over
both (they are synchronized for that purpose) and do a wall run to the shutter
and jump from there to a narrow ledge on the opposite wall. Go right and jump to
a higher narrow ledge. “God”:
Oh? Would you like a drink? What

View and notice a large half saw blade spinning below you
(counter-clockwise), so drop down when the gap in the blade turns up large
enough and immediately jump to your left.
Drop down now!
here you see that there are two such blades – one on each wall – spinning in
opposite senses. When the gaps face
each other run through and turn to the left wall where a third blade is spinning
(keep your distance!). Wait for the gap to appear and run up the wall grabbing a
horizontal wall groove.
Pull out that block and jump to it
left and jump to the opposite horizontal wall groove and shimmy right until you
can drop down to a ledge.
From here you can see your final trap
last you’ll have to pass your final trap: three spinning saw blades. NOW
go into slow motion and you can easily run through. Immediately behind this trap
there is a floor switch. Keep running and when stepping on it the door will
Step on the switch to open the door
inside and a long cut scene will start. The
first thing you will see in this dark room lit by the Sand Wraith himself is a
shiny Sword lying on the floor.
A decorated Sword on the floor
you will pick up the Sword and will notice a corpse lying on the floor.
A Warrior is lying dead on the floor
Sand Wraith recognizes his Father and kneels over him. And
of course “God” has to interfere:
Come on now. Did you really expect to find him alive? Even after everything you had experienced, you... you hold out hope?!
The Sand Wraith starts crying...
What have I done?
The Sand Wraith gets furious
then he turns remorseful:
You are right. I HAVE been like a child: naïve and arrogant. Always rushing to undo my mistakes. Never facing the consequences of my actions. No more. I accept my end out now, and all that it implies. Then he spontaneously turns into the Prince again.
The Sand Wraith turns into the Prince of Persia
What is this? You have no water?! How did
Prince: You hold no power over me now! Be gone! Retreat to whatever dark hole spawned you and do not trouble me again.

powerful Weapon! Try it out on the hordes of Ghouls that appear out of the blue:
one or two strokes will kill them. Thus you learn how to fight with the new
