Lost Island (part 1)
You guys need to cross over to the nearby staircase, but a giant hole in the ground is making things difficult. Thankfully, the platform suspended by the nearby crane is just what you need to make it cross. Swing it over to the gap by attaching slime tethers to the crane and the ground, causing the platform to make its way toward the hole--once it's close, it'll automatically fall into place, allowing you to cross over and climb the stairs. As you climb the ramp, a mine cart will come careening your way--step to the side to avoid being turned into a pancake.
At the top, look for a Strange Book artifact behind the boxes just past the statue. Now climb the staircase nearby and get ready for some gargoyles to appear as you attempt to cross the bridge. Like before, wrangle them with the Capture Beam and slam them into any object to destroy them. Just ahead, you'll face another, as well as several spiders, as you head through a short hallway--back up to target the gargoyle first, then use the Overload Pulse on the spiders. Make sure to cleap up any remaining black sludge with the Slime Blower. You'll face an identical group of enemies just after, followed by one more gargoyle in the second hall.
When at the third bridge, a door on the right will slam shut as you try to go through it. No worries--you can open it via a crank in the hedge maze just below, by taking the staircase on the left, just ahead. There are two main routes: head left first to find the Stuffed Animal artifact, then proceed the opposite way to find the crank in the back corner. Turn it clockwise using the Slime Tether by attaching one end to crank and the other to the ground. Once the door opens, work your way back to it by using the Shock Blast to take down the attacking black-slime enemies--proceed slowly to prevent them from getting behind you.
Once through the door, head right and follow the walkway around the large room. Bust through a wooden barricade at the end first to find a Large Painting artifact, then head down the hallway just before to a door…which slams shut as you approach. Several ghosts will now appear behind you--use either the Blast Stream or the Composite Particle System (right on control-pad) to take them on. Unlike other ghosts, these guys do not need to be captured. Once they're down, equip the Shock Blast to tackle a few black-slime creatures who'll attack immediately after. With the room cleared, continue through the now open door.
