Tomb Raider 2600
The Mystery of the Scarlet Dragon
Location: Ruins, Jipijapa, Ecuador
During a routine archaeological dig a most significant discovery was made, a small dragon statue carved out of pure Ruby. None of the previous known cultures of ancient South America could account for the find. Dubbed the “Scarlet Dragon,” the idol has become the subject of much debate and curiosity. Where did the Dragon come from? Who made it? Where did they find a source of such large and pure rubies? Are there more like it? Plenty of questions and the only answers are buried deep in the Ecuadorian mountainside. Many experts have studied the Scarlet Dragon, but none have been able to offer any answers, until now…
Her plane set down outside the tiny village of Jipijapa two days ago. Lara Croft, world-renowned explorer and rumored “Tomb Raider” has come to do what many would never dare, enter the forgotten ruins and solve the Mystery of the Scarlet Dragon.
Your job is simple. Guide Lara through the tunnels and passageways of the Jipijapa Ruins. Pick up as many Scarlet Dragons as you can find. Along the way, collect all the key tablets you can, without them you will not be able to venture into the next level of the ruins. Also be on the look out for other helpful items, including Lara’s trademark pistols (good for killing one enemy) and flares to help you see in the dark. There are likely other items lost in the ruins that can help you and who knows what powers they may possess!
But remember, tomb raiding is NEVER easy. Expect the ruins to be littered with obstacles of all sorts from razor floor traps to spiked balls, and even pools of lava! And it’s a sure bet that the ruins are home to some nasty creatures as well. You’ll have to be quick and nimble if you are to uncover the secrets of this ancient temple!
Off you go! The Mystery of the Scarlet Dragon awaits!
