You’ll enter into a small marketplace-like area. If you go a little bit to the left, the first personyou talk to tells you this: “The sultan holes himself up in the palac with his riches, while the people are terrorized by the 40 theives!” You could try going to the left and get into the Sultan’s palace, but the gaurds always catch you. Don’t wory, we’ll get there soon enough! Run to the next sccreen on the right. You can talk to the man next to the platform. He’ll tell you that the thieves might be hiding in the caves. Run to the next screen on the right to get to the caves. Jump up on the platforms, and keep jumping up until you get to an area of quicksand.
Jump over that and try to steer clear of the bones. Keep running until you get to the sceond area of quicksand. Slide through this one and go to the right. Push the box next to you to the right until you get to the high platform. Stand on the box and jump onto the platform. Run off the right side of the platform, then push the box that’s next to you to the left. Push it until it reaches the rock, then jump onto the high platform and run to the left, making sure to jump over any quicksand. Reach the box, then push it off the platform to the left, all the way to the ladder. Jump all the way to the top, then run to the right and push the box to the right. Jump on it and jump onto the higher platform to the right. Jump over the quicksand, and you’ll find a skeletoon holding a bag of salt. We need the bag, so just run over there and get it. To exit the cave, drop through the second quicksand, then run to the right and exit. We now have the salt, maybe we can try to catch the theives with it! Go to the platform, then put the salt crystals on it. Exit the scene, then come back. The salt is gone!
We need to spy on the thieves somehow. Go left to the Main Street area. unto the left, until you get to the stall that says Out of Business. JUmp on its roof, then hop up the stairs and trade with the merchant on your right. Click on the salt and he’ll give you a bag of grain. Go down to the first floor and trade the grain with the merchant with the camel. He’ll give you some valuable cloth. Go back to the merchant that sold you the grain and give him the cloth. He’ll give you a telescope. That’s the perfect thing for spying on the thieves! Go to the right, and jump up the huge tower. When you get to the top, you’ll notice a stand. Use your telescope and put it on the stand. You can click to look through it. You’ll see the stone platform!
Now we can defiantly spy on the thieves! Go back to the platform and put the salt on it. Run back to the telescope and look for the thieves. Once you find them, they’ll run to the salt and use a smoke bomb to get it and vanish. Wait, they left something behind! Run back to the platform and you’ll see that they left a smoke bomb. Pick it up and equip it. Run to the left screen of Main Street and be in the palace area. Jump on the window sill, then jump on the other one. You’ll see the guards talking for a little bit. When one guard goes over to the other, press the space bar to throw the bomb and daze them for a little bit. Run inside the palace. Go left and you can talk to the sultan. He says that the thieves robbed him of everything! He says that he doesn’t care about the money, but the thieves took his precious lamp. He gives you his last jewel to try and get his lamp. Note: you have to ask all three questions in order to get the jewel.
We can get a lot of good things with this jewel. Go back to Main Street and go to the merchant who gave you the grain and the telescope. Trade the crown jewel for his ivory camel. Go to the bottom floor and trade with the merchant that’s holding a real camel. Trade the ivory camel for his camel bridle. He says if we can control his camel, we can have him. Use the camel bridle, and the leash will be put in his hand. If you run too fast, the camel will refuse to follow.
Go back to the platform and leave the camel there. Run back to the telescope and look through it and find the thieves. One will run over and through a smoke bomb. His mistake was trying to run fast to get to his hideout. He gives the camel a banana and walks slowly to the oasis. He says Open Sesame! and a camel head will come up. He’ll go into it and the camel head will disappear. So that’s where their hideout is! Run to the oasis. You’ll say Open Sesame and run to the camel head. You are now entering the thieves lair! Congratulations! You’ve finished the island!
