What is required to complete this level in 100%?
To complete Aquaria Towers in 100%, you have to do the following things:
- Collect 400 crystals
- Collect 3 orbs
After starting the level, talk to a seahorse standing nearby. He will ask you to flood the whole area with water. Continue ahead and eliminate the nearby man and two crayfish. As long as there is no water in the room you can use fire for this purpose. After the battle, collect the crystals and activate the button. This way the whole room will be filled with water.
This will allow you to swim into the next chamber. The tunnel will lead you to something like a chimney, the top of which comes out on dry land. Repeat what you did in the first chamber - kill all enemies and activate the button.
The water will rise to such an extent that you will be able to get on a shelf with two crystals. From there, you'll need to jump higher on the platform where you'll find a well.
Jump into it. It will allow you to swim to the next chamber. When you reach the cave, you will have to pay 100 crystals to rent a boat. At this stage, this will be the only way to cross the next canal, as there are steel sharks in it. You can only defeat them with superflame. In addition, they will kill you instantly, no matter what your health condition is.
After crossing the channel you will be in the last chamber. Eliminate all enemies and activate the button. This will flood the entire space.
Pass through a small gap to the starting position. Talk to the seahorse there to finish the level. At this point, the superflame gate will also become active. You can use it to eliminate the steel sharks. Not only in the tunnel, but also in a small chamber leaving the cavity with the second button. This way you can collect the crystals that are there. Additionally, you can swim out into open space using the holes in the ceiling of the first location. You will find the rest of the crystals and all three orbs there.
Challenge 1: Seahorse rescue
Difficulty: 2 stars
This challenge will be given by a seahorse near the underwater towers. He will ask you to save his children locked in six towers. The order in which you free them is important. Their location is as follows:
- The first two are located right next to the quest giver.
- The next two of them can be found at the first location you visited
- Tower number 5 is located in the second location.
- The last tower is in the same location as the last button.
However, you must watch out for the obstacles that you will find in the towers. These may be crayfish or electric fields.
Challenges 2 and 3: Manta ride
Difficulty: 2 and 3 stars respectively
These tasks are identical. The only thing that changes is the level of difficulty.
Near the towers there is a large flat area where you will find a trainer. He will ask you for help in training a manta. If you agree, you will have to swim on its back through the rings that will be set up by the trainer.
