Underground Cave Part 1 Step-By-Step Guide
Here’s a step-by-step guide to navigating the Underground Cave #1 level in the game Alone in the Dark:
Step 1: Beware of the Monster
- Upon entering the level, be aware that there’s a monster lurking in the water. While it won’t climb out, it can harm your character through its attacks, even if you’re on the dock.
Step 2: Trick the Monster
- Your objective is to run around the dock swiftly. There’s only one path you can take.
- If the monster is edging too close and hindering your progress, lure it away, then immediately dash back in your desired direction. Remember, you move faster than the monster and you should be able to track it easily.
Step 3: Stay Dry
- If you fall into the water, you can climb back up. However, doing so will make your rifle cartridges wet and useless (if you have any left). Besides, you become an easy target for the monster in the water. So, try not to fall.
Step 4: Beware of the Bridge
- Soon, you’ll encounter a bridge of a lighter shade of brown. You should not walk on it as it is fragile and can break.
Step 5: Jump Over the Bridge
- With the ‘Jump’ command added to your list of actions after entering the underground, make sure to jump over this brittle bridge.
Step 6: Advance to the Brown Tunnel
- Once safely over the bridge, climb up the other side to reach a brown tunnel.
Note for experienced players: Instead of following the steps above, if you’re already familiar with the game, you can opt to dive into the water right away and use the less visible underwater passages to quickly get to Underground Cave #3. You can find a spot there to climb back up. This is the fastest but risky path.
Step 7: Brown Tunnel
- You’ll encounter a grey spider/rat-like monster in the brown tunnel. Simply shoot it until it dies and then proceed through the passage. This will lead you to the second part of the underground cave.
