Puzzle walkthrough


Once you get to the vista, go left and jump down. Keep going left while avoiding the red circles (they hurt!). Once you get to to the area with a bunch of risen eagles and purple/pink platforms leading up, basically follow the platforms and go up. None of the jumps are difficult here.What is tricky is the camera messing with your view.


Once you get to the very top, there are quite a few mobs guarding the treasure chest. If you just want the achievement, you can just run in. Otherwise, you will need to fight them off while avoiding red circles.
