You start in an alien hangar or something. Theres a ship in front of you and a giant door behind you. If you go up a level and to the left, there's an elevator. At the top, an alien scientist tells you to activate the switches. They're on the wall below the bridge. To get them, Go back down, and go up the QPs and grind on the wire. Jump up quickly to grind on the green wire. When you get around to the bridge, they will slope up. Jump off the ends and sticker slap the controls. Do the same on the other side. It will play a video of the doors opening and the ship flying through a portal. If you go back down you can go through the portal to come out at some ancient central American temple. A guy in front says not to deface the monkey idols. Obviously this is what we are going to do. There are two idols outside the building on the front. Paint them. The next two are inside, on the left and right walls. The last is up at the very top level behind the giant monkey statue. You will now see a portal to hell open. You can either jump in it to go to hell, or knock down the monkey's ball. To knock it down, just go to the upper level and grind the ledges to which the support cables are attached on the left and right of the statue. The ball will fall off and make a large hole in the ground. In hell, you will see lost souls wandering around. The level is just a few circles of hell, and you can only go around it. At one end of the starting circle is an imp or something. He will tell you to do a lip on the broken ribs on either side of him. Once you do that they will fall, and you can grind or skate across them and sticker slap the runes on the pillars. That will open the lounge area, where you can dance with the devil. Not much of a reward for all this work. The alien hangar now has a portal to hell, if you go behind where the ship was, bust through some glass, and get to the lower level, theres a hole in the ground that leads to hell. --------------------------------------- 4.

After it curves right, jump to the copter blades and grind them for the M. They curve left, so jump toward the triangle. Grind it or manual over it, then manual past it toward the wall. Go up it at a left angle, jump and grind on the top of the wall to the left. At the left turn in the wall, jump across to the other side and grind. When you come upon the higher wall on the right, jump and wallride it, then quickly wallie right over the wall and manual. Go across and spine over the QP to get the O. Collect 5 Treasure Chests Turn hard right and go over the wall. Climb the blocky wall thing with the halfpipe on top, the first chest is in there. Now go off to the left and follow the right side of the level past the airplane. It's on a flat sandy area in front of a wide QP. Now continue forward and climb the mountain on the left side of the path. On top is another path. The next chest is at the start of this path. Now face across the chasm and you will see another chest on the other side. Now go back down to the floor of the chasm and follow the path to the end where the last one waits. Secret Tape Go forward past the QPs and turn right. Go forward to the crashed jet nose. Spine into it and get off the board. Climb the steel beams sticking out of it. The tape is at the top of them. Activate the Triangles! Turn around and jump over the rock. The first is right here on the left. Grind its edge. Turn around to the left and go forward. Between the crashed choppers is the next triangles. Now go across the mountain face to find the last one. Bust a Lip Trick on the UFO Go forward and then right. Go around the mountain to the right. When you see the straight metal QP on the left side, go up it and spine to the helipad. Now get special. Spine back down for speed, and go up the other side lined up with the wooden door in the wall. Boneless up it and lip on the mother ship. ******************************** All Classic Mode Goals Complete! ******************************** --------------------------------------- 6. General Playing Tips --------------------------------------- This section is just some miscellaneous things that a good Tony Hawk player should know, including basic skating technique, tricks for getting good combo scores, etc. **Note: This is all based off of the way we play. You aren't required to follow these tips in any way, it's just advice. ********************* Skating Technique ********************* First of all, hold down the ollie button whenever possible, for speed. Only skate without it if you need less speed. You should hold it with the thumb joint, not the tip (you probably do this anyway). That way you can press other buttons as soon as you ollie. To ollie, instead of tapping the button, you will now "reverse-tap" it. Let it go to ollie and press it again immediately or after your trick(s) are complete. If you need to grind something below you and you are flying through the air towards it, just hold grind, don't try to guess the timing. If you are balancing and doing tricks, or doing specific tricks, use the pad instead of the analog stick so you can be sure you press exactly the directions you want. Balances are also easier to control with the pad with quick taps. In fact, I use the pad about 90% of the time. ********************* High Combos ********************* When getting high scores and combo, we prefer the vert-lip-grind-manual method. By this we mean start in a pool, do some vert tricks in a combo, and when your speed runs low, do a lip trick and get more points. Then when your lip balance runs out, jump off the lip so you have some speed, and go across the pool and grind around it. This where you can get a sickening multiplier. Press buttons simultaneously and quickly to have it switch back and forth VERY fast. This step can add around 40 to your multiplier. When your rail balance is used up, jump out of the pool into a manual. Use up the manual balance increasing multiplier if necessary, and use special manuals to increase your base. With easy mode (easier balance) I've gotten a 3 million point combo without cheating. ********************* Classic Mode ********************* You should always reset your stats as needed for each goal. Don't worry about taking a stat down to zero if it's not needed.
