Red Tunnels Part 1 Guide
Step 1: Start Running
- Start your journey through the Red Tunnels by running instead of walking. The path is straightforward with no deviations.
Step 2: Ignore the Giant Worm
- At some point, you’ll notice a giant worm behind you. Ignore it and continue with your running as this creature can kill your character instantly. If you choose to walk, there’s a high chance that the worm will catch up with you.
Step 3: Choose the Right Tunnel
- Soon, you’ll reach an area where the path bifurcates into the left and right tunnels. The left one will be blocked by a rock, therefore, you’ll have to take the path on the right.
Step 4: Defeat the Bird Monster
- A bird monster will be awaiting your arrival in the right tunnel. You can eliminate this threat by using your rifle. Don’t worry about the worm at this point because it will venture through the left tunnel and break the blocking rock.
Step 5: Encounter with the Worm – Again
- After you defeat the bird monster, proceed toward the bottom of the screen twice. Chances are you’ll encounter the worm again. If it’s not there, it means you were fast enough, and you proceed further.
Step 6: Run Away from the Worm
- If you confront the worm again, immediately run away and return to the earlier junction where the left tunnel was obstructed.
Step 7: Head to the Left Tunnel
- This time, the left tunnel will be clear. Walk down this path until you reach a cave with a wooden dock. The worm should not bother you anymore. If for some reason you still see the worm, face it once more and turn back again.
Step 8: Drop Down to The Dock
- Once you’re at the wooden dock, you can drop down to it and you will find yourself paying your first visit to the underground cave.
