Chapter 4 - Secrets
This section reveals some of Prince of Persia: Warrior Withins hidden secrets. There are hidden secondary weapons and a secret ending for those diligent enough to recover all nine life upgrades and its reward.
Hockey Stick: Once you possess the Scorpion Sword that can break walls, return to the central hall (youll automatically move through the area as you complete game objectives). Adjust the lever so it points toward the Hourglass Chamber route. While you stand at the lock and facing the Hourglass Chamber route, drop onto a platform on the left side. Hang onto the edge and jump to the left and back to the right repeatedly to safely descend to the platform below. At the bottom, drop down to another platform below. Turn left while facing the abyss. Run along the left wall. When you reach the end, press jump and rebound back and forth up the two walls until youre at the top. At the top, face the abyss and spot the entrance just diagonal and below your position. Run and jump to that entrance. Hit jump just as you reach the edge so you make the distance. Instead of going through the entrance toward the life upgrade, look to the right. The wall there is cracked. Break it with the Scorpion Sword to reveal a hidden secondary weapon: the hockey stick!
Glowing Sword: Youll find this hidden secondary weapon inside the Mystic Caves. At one point during your trip through the Mystic Caves, youll leap from the stalactites along the cavern ceiling to reach a door switch. After going through the door, drop into the next pit. Break open the cracked wall with your sword. Smack the weapon rack and pick up the glowing green sword. This unique weapon is extremely strong but actually drains your health after striking an enemy.
Finding life upgrades does more than just elevate the princes maximum health. If youre able to locate and obtain all nine (all revealed in this game guide) then you have the potential to the games alternate ending.
Once you recover all nine life upgrades, return to the Hourglass Chamber to find a new item resting in the rooms center. Pick up this item, the water sword. With all nine life upgrades and the water sword in hand, reach the end of the game and trigger a different boss battle sequence. Instead of the Empress, you battle the Dahaka. Defeat the Dahaka to watch the alternate ending!
