Alone In The Dark 2 Strategy Guide

Note: This game was also titled Alone In The Dark: One-Eyed Jack's Revenge.


Hints:
Fighting can be made easy by always closing on the target and punching them as often as possible. Most of the time, the opponent will keep shooting towards but behind your character. Most of the opponents with Thompson guns have poor aim and often fire at some spot on the wall instead of at your character.

Stay close to the walls (especially in the Garden).

Always pick up all objects found on your opponents.

Some weapons seem weak in attacking power but can be very useful when speed is important (e.g., the revolver and the punch).

Do not use flasks unless your character's health is below 40 points. Your character has a maximum health of 50 points in the earlier portion of the game, and flasks always restore a minimum of 10 health points.

Wait until the Thompson is out, or very close to being out of ammunition before reloading. Ammunition clips for the Thompson always reload the weapon to 30 rounds, regardless of the previous amount in the gun.


Carnby: The Garden

Punch out the stunned guard and take the Thompson, the clip and the flask.

Run down the right side of the walkway towards the house. By moving quickly rather than shooting, two more guards can be avoided. Push the large statue of the anchor and enter the garden.

There is someone just behind the first path to the left of the entry path. Kill him and take the photo. Examine the photo.

Continue down the entry path, turn right and kill another man. Take the clip and the flask. Go to where that man appeared from. Take the rope. Note the large diamond card on the ground.

Return to the entry path, and walk to the crossroads. Follow the path towards the top of the screen. Go to the end of the path and take the clip that is hidden there.

Return to the crossroads and follow the path towards the bottom of the screen. Kill the man that will appear. Take and read the book. Continue along the path until the hook is found. Take the hook. Step on the large diamond card.


Carnby: Under The Garden

Go straight forward and punch the green zombie.

Walk towards the ladder. Take the flask. Ignore the ladder and go to the other part of the underground area.

Take the torn notebook. Push the chest to raise the altar. Take the metallic jack of diamonds. A ghost will appear behind your character. It can be killed with the Thompson. Take the pirate's saber.

If there are men waiting at the entrance (location with four cards on the ground), it would be a good idea to use the metallic jack of diamonds on the altar and escape by that route. If not do not use the jack and climb out by the hole your character entered the underground area.


Carnby: The Garden Again

Either escape route will lead to a three-way intersection. Enter the L-shaped path. A demonic face will appear in the bushes. Continue walking to the left. Shoot the fat man carrying a shotgun and walk to where he appeared from. Not turning will lead back to the crossroads.

Cut the moving branches with the saber. To minimize damage, attack by pressing Action + Up, and press Down immediately after a successful hit. Save the game. The little brown spot behind the trees to the right is Shorty Leg, and he is tough to kill. Run to the end of the path and use the left side of the statue as cover. Use the revolver and the Thompson to kill him. Do not worry about using all the ammunition.

Take the flask and the newspaper page. Use the hook to attach it to the rope. Use the hook and rope to make the statue's arm move. Enter the base of One Eyed Jack's statue.


Carnby: Under The Statue

Your character will fall a long way and lose all his weapons before landing on a platform. Tap Walk briefly to move in small, precise steps. Take the nickel, crank, and paper bag from the platform.

Walk towards the door. Take the notebook and the pipe cleaner from Striker's corpse. Use the torn notebook to create a detective's notebook. Read the notebook. To get the key to open the locked door, use the newspaper under the door, then the pipe cleaner. Use the key to unlock the door and enter.


Carnby: Basement

A man will be sitting next to a barrel at the far end of the room. There are two ways to get rid of him.

  1. Get behind the barrel, just beside the lever. Use the paper bag to fill it with air. Use the paper bag again to pop it, and wait until the man rises to his feet. Push the lever and quickly move to the left.
  2. Fight the man and try to force him off the cliff.

Take the riot gun, the manuscript, and the flask. Read the manuscript. Go to the right of the grandfather clock and use the crank to open the secret passage.

Enter the secret passage and take the book. Read the book. Follow the passage and take the riot gun cartridges. Enter the elevator.


Carnby: Basement Hallway

To kill Music Man, tear his pact. Take the hook. Sounds from the shooting gallery will be heard. Enter the door.


Carnby: Laundry Room

Take the battledore and go to the next door. Do not go upstairs.


Carnby: Shooting Gallery

To kill the two men, stay in the doorway and shoot the first man using one shot (the riot gun cartridges must be saved for the next section). Walk backwards and wait for the other man to appear. Kill him with the battledore. Re-enter the shooting gallery. The two men were shooting at some rotating cards. Try to align four diamonds to open the door by shooting the rotating cards.


Carnby: Secret Distillery

When the door opens, a man will appear. Kill him and enter the cellar. Get the flask. Take the whiskey bottle, but do not drink it. Use the nickel in the slot machine to get two tokens. Take the book from the back of the room and read it.

Return to the shooting gallery. There are two options here.

  1. Give the man the whiskey bottle and take his bag without a fight. He may appear in the guard room later, where he must be killed.
  2. Kill the man with the battledore, frying pan, or by punching him.

Open the bag and put on the Santa Claus costume.

Return to the laundry room, and walk upstairs.


Carnby: Ground Floor Hallway

To get kill the little cook walking down the hall, and to safely move past the statue, wait until he walks in front of the statue and start running to trigger the trident. Duck in the kitchen to avoid being hit. Go to the right side of the statute and take the crown.


Carnby: Kitchen

Enter the kitchen and take the frying pan and the eggs. Listen to T-Bone's clue. Use the frying pan to fight with T-Bone; it will block incoming darts. Eat the eggs to restore health points.

Take the wine from the stove and the poison from the ground next to the dumbwaiter. Use the poison on the wine.


Carnby: Guard Room

Return to the door in front of the statue, in the ground floor hallway. Drop the poisoned wine in front of the door to eliminate the guards.

Go through the guard room door use both tokens in the barrel organ, which faces the statue. The golden token will make a doubloon appear on the floor. Take the doubloon. The wooden token will open the door to the dormitory. Go to that door.

The man in this room will throw a derringer. Take it quickly and use it to kill the man. Take the sword stick. Take the piece of parchment and the book from the bookshelf. Read the book.


Carnby: Second Floor Bedroom

Return to the hallway and open the nearest door (the other door at the end of the hall is the bathroom, and does not contain anything of interest).

Two ghost arms are protecting the other half of the scroll. The scroll is not required, but is needed to solve the next puzzle without further assistance. Use the sword stick to kill the arms. Stay beside the window, hack, get back, hack again and repeat.

The answer to the riddle on the parchment is to use the crown on the white bust.

Walk to the door to the right of the bust and enter the sorcery chamber. The door in the chamber leads to another bathroom, and does not need to be explored. Take the amulet. Your character will levitate and be teleported.

There is a tinderbox on the deck between the barrel and the pirates. Move carefully to the tinderbox and take it. It is important not to move too close to the pirates.
