Altin Peak

To find the first Water Monster in Altin Peak you're going to want to follow the mine track for several screens. Eventually you'll arrive at a screen that has a large lake with another one of those Living Statues there. In order to get this guy, you're going to have to take the mine cart, so head around the bottom and Left walls clockwise to find the mine cart. However, you'll need to flip the switch a little east of the mine cart first in order to have the track go the correct direction to reach this water monster. After a roller coaster ride of sorts, you'll end up right next to the Living Statue, so save your game and inactivate all of your Djinn. Approach the Living Statue and press A when next to it to challenge it to a battle. See above for my strategy to beat this enemy. When you beat him you'll get a Vial that restores 500 HP and the water level will drain a little again. You'll now want to head back from whence you came (8) on the mine cart, then go east followed by south towards a ladder and a door. There is a treasure chest in this door, but it's blocked by a large rock that you'll need lift to get past (more on that later.) Head up the other ladder, and go clockwise until you get back at the door. Continue back along the track until you get to the next screen. On this screen continue going along the track until you see a door to the north that you haven't gone in yet. Proceed through this door and climb down the ladder in this room. Go through the door and head west. You'll see a train track going south when you get to the western wall, so go down from there. Here you'll want to change the switch to go west as opposed to east, then head north along the train track. When you reach the mine cart head in and find yourself across the lake next to a door. Proceed through this door. In this room head west until there's a fork where you'll want to head south. In the next room, don't go up the ladder until you freeze the puddle of water in between two ledges. Now that you've done that, head up the ladder and jump over the ice pillar to the other side. Go through the door to find a room with a mine cart and a Living Statue visible. Hrmmm, I wonder if you'll have to use the mine cart to get this living statue? ;-] Climb down the ladder from the ledge you were on and head west. When you see another ladder going up to a connecting piece of mine track (it's got jumps on either end) head north just to the west of this and freeze the puddle there. Don't go up that ladder just yet, though. Instead, go west some more and go up the ladder there. Flip the switch from left to right, then go down that ladder and up the ladder in the middle. Jump across the ice pillar and hop in the mine cart. You'll end up on a ledge northwest of the lake. Here you should climb down the ladder, save your game and standby all of your Djinn and get ready for another Living Statue battle. See above for strategies. By this time you may even be able to beat him in one round ;-]. Now, use retreat and head out of the cave and stop by the inn and weapons shops.

Now, you want to go to the lowest entrance of the mine and follow the mine tracks. When you get to a fork near the beginning of the track, head right and continue until the track ends a few screens later. When the track ends, go clockwise in that room and then head south. In this part, you'll want to head east then start heading north. Keep going along the path to eventually end up a door that you want to go through. In this room, you'll see a Djinn on a ledge. Let's go get another Djinn! Go to the eastern part of the room where you'll see a stump and a puddle of water. Move the stump one square to the left and freeze the puddle. Head north and climb up the ladder. Change the switch when you get up there and head south along the mine cart. Hop across the ice pillar and stump and into the mine cart. You'll first go in the apparent wrong direction off to the right, but hop in the cart again to land just north of the Djinn. Head south and prepare for a battle. By this point Djinn really shouldn't be posing much of a challenge to you, especially if you use the right attacks against them. For example, fire attacks wreck havoc on this Mercury Djinn, Spiritz. Now, head back in the mine cart and get out. Head west to find a water puddle that, surprise, you'll have to freeze. Don't climb up the ladder quite yet, as there's another puddle you have to freeze a little further west. Now, go back east and head up the ladder. Ledge hop and go through the door. In this new room, take a left and head south for a long time until you reach a door. In this room, go north through a rock filled tunnel until you find a sign and a dead end. Read the sign that talks about falling rocks. If you didn't have Force by now Garret would get angry and kick the tree causes a boulder to come after you. If you do have Force, line up facing the tree stump and use force on it. A giant rock will fall and you'll automatically run away. It will cause a giant hole in the middle of the rail road tracks. Climb down the ladder then slide down the mountainside. Now, head to the north part of the hole and climb down the broken track as if it was a ladder. Head west to find a paved area that apparently was a secret buried deep beneath the mines. At this point you'll want to save your game because it's just about boss time.

It's time to fight the final boss of Altin Peak. As always put all your Djinn on standby. Cast all of your summons against this boss to do a substantial amount of damage. Now, use Ragnarok with Isaac, Heat Wave with Garret, Impact on Garret and Storm Ray with Ivan, and Ply with Mia. This boss has a really bad attack and the fear of dieing really shouldn't be there. On his death you get 2400 coins and a Lucky Medal. Plus, you'll get a treasure chest behind the boss that contains the Lifting Gem that lets you lift large rocks in your way. Now, use retreat and heal your wounds in the Inn. If you haven't done so yet, get the latest weapons and armor from the shops in town.

Once more enter the mine entrance at the lowest possible point. Go along the mine tracks until you reach the fork. Here you'll want to go forward at the fork, and use the Lift Psynergy that you got from that Lifting Gem on the brown rock there. The rock will now hover over your head allowing you to pass to the door. In this screen head left, but don't go to the far left unless you're really interested in getting a Vial behind a statue. When you head up the middle path there will be another rock there that, surprise, you have to lift. Continue along this path, and the next door you go through will put you back on the world map, this time near...
