Opening the boss roomEdit

Go to E-4 once there push the bottom-right block to the right and off the edge of the platform, it should land on the statues head, then do the same with the bottom-left block; They should now both be stacked on top of each other. Now go to the top-most block and push it to the right as well, keep pushing until it falls to the lower platform and then pushes it off of there, to the right. If done correctly it should land on the switch which will cause a dais/pedestal to appear in the top-right corner of the room, place a weight on it; A ladder should appear at the bottom of the room, the boss room is down it.
- If a weight has not been placed on the dais at D-3 (see 'Making the ankh appear' above) then the room will be empty save for two bats. If that puzzle has been completed the room will contain an ankh; use an ankh jewel on it to start the fight against Amphisbaena.

- There is a face in the background with a dais/pedestal underneath, that is surrounded by skeletons. If you place a weight on the dais/pedestal then the jaw of the face will fall on you.
- Location: G-2
- At the bottom-right of the room there is a pit with a skeleton in, if you go down there spikes will shoot up from the floor. If you do fall down you can avoid damage by getting to the ground under the ladder because no spikes shoot up there.
- Location: C-4 and C-5
- If you fall down the hole under the face in C-4 you will land in C-5. Once you land spikes will jump out of the floor, only in the center of the room. They can be avoided if you jump out the way quickly. The spikes do not trigger if you enter the room from anywhere else.
- Location: A-3
- There is a chest on the bottom-left corner of the room, if you place a weight on the dais/pedestal, spikes will shoot out of the ground. It can be avoided if you quickly jump to the sides.
