Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Which of these peaceful villages set in long grasses and hometown of Lilly, is literally invisible to Will until Lola's Melody is played?

Answer: Itory Village

Itory Village is a charming place, and has some relaxing music to set a nice mood. It is hometown to Lilly, who is sensible, and often collides with Kara who is not so sensible! Despite the peaceful nature of the village, Will must use his newly found Psycho Dash skill to find one of the Incan Statues, which is said to be the key to the treasure he is looking for...
2. In which of these dry settings, based on Peruvian hieroglyphs in a desert of the same name, does Will have to solve the mystery of what these hieroglyphs mean in order to gain access to the lofty Sky Garden, home to the second Mystic Statue?

Answer: Nazca Lines

In this case, Will must find the right location of the condor which is said to represent the constellation Cygnus - the right location corresponds with a red star in the sky, which portends doom. Whilst looking around, Will finds one of the mysterious Moon Tribe, whom he also meets atop the Sky Garden - whilst they give him some advice, it is uncertain what side they are on.

Pollucci19 informs us that the real Nazca Lines are a series of large motifs that sit on a plateau in the Nazca Desert of Peru. They have managed to be preserved here due to the stability of the climate. UNESCO deemed it a World Heritage site in 1994. Approximately seventy of the designs are zoomorphic, which means they're shaped like animals. These include representations of birds, llamas, orcas, monkeys and spiders. The largest figure in this set is 660 feet across.
3. In which of these bone-chilling locations, named after a hard mineral, does Will need to go to in order to learn a song that will restore his friend Lance's memories?

Answer: Diamond Mine

'Illusion of Gaia' uses description to great effect as Will is said to hear a bone-chilling scream as he enters the mine. The mine is a dark location, and the slaves are tied up and being beaten by lizard men. Will must save all the slaves; in doing so, one of them teaches him the Song of Memory, which restores his friend Lance's memories, allowing him and his friends to continue their journey.
4. Which of these ruins, bearing a very similar title to one in Cambodia built in the 12th century, must Will battle through zombies, man-eating bushes and floating skulls in order to obtain the Gorgon Flower, which cures petrification?

Answer: Ankor Wat

Ankor Wat is one of my favourite dungeons - it has a wide array of enemies, vibrant music, and is visually quite attractive. The dungeon is broadly split into two types of section - a garden and an interior, and different monsters inhabit each area. However, the enemies hit hard initially, although they get easier as time goes on.

Tazman6619 tells us that, in the real world, Angkor Wat is the ruins of a temple complex located in Cambodia. They were built in the early 12th century by King Suryavarman II of the Khmer Rouge Empire. The site served as both the capital and temple for Suryavarman. The site has become the symbol of Cambodia and is found on Cambodia's flag. At first it was a Hindu temple but then became a Buddhist temple. Although the site was mostly abandoned after the 16th century, it was never totally abandoned. It became known to the outside world through the writings of French explorer Henri Mouhot in the mid-19th century.
5. In which of these locations, based in principle on a hypothetical 'lost continent' that existed before the dawn of human history, does Will have to take an arduous journey in order to rescue his friends from the thrall of Jack and Silvana, a pair of vicious vampires?

Answer: Mu

Much of Mu is set underwater, to begin with, although the water does not get into the palace - it must have had good architects! Will appears to be the only survivor initially - everyone else seems to be a spirit. However, he does find Lilly, and she accompanies him as he solves the puzzles of Mu, reducing the water levels, and obtaining another Mystic Statue from Rama, who is most likely based on the real world figure.

The concept of Mu was postulated by writer Augustus Le Plongeon, who believed that the ancient civilisation of Egypt was created from inhabitants of Mu. However, science has since told us that it would have been impossible for such a large land mass to simply 'disappear' in the way he suggested...
6. The Angel Village is a peaceful setting set underground, however, the inhabitants of the village do not like to leave the village. For which of these reasons, most often ascribed to vampires, do the angels fear to tread above ground?

Answer: Fear of sunlight

The Angels are a curious people - the dappled sunlight through their open-top houses is quite visually attractive, and they also seem to have harnessed underwater rivers and waterfalls to their advantage. However, sadly, they appear not to have any emotions - it is said that they were the survivors of those who passed through Mu; but they were evolved beyond humanity.

A painter here, Ishtar, can literally turn people into portraits through his drawings, and does so to Kara, and, ironically, to himself through a self-portrait. Will has a rare outburst at Kara after saving her from the fate of being a portrait - from that point on, Kara is more mature.
7. The peaceful town of Watermia is set with beautiful floating houses. However, it has a dark side - which of these fictional games of chance, based on a game named after a very large country in the real world, must Will play and win in order to continue his journey, bearing in mind he dies if he loses?

Answer: Russian Glass

Russian Glass is most likely named after Russian Roulette, the gun game where people take wagers with their lives with the hope that bullet isn't in their shot. In 'Illusion of Gaia', Will must play Russian Glass, a similar version which involves drinking shots, one of which is poisoned. Because Will has clairvoyance, he never needs to drink the poisonous one - the game will always go down to the last bottle, of which the opposing player, known as the Champion, drinks, despite knowing it is poison.

A bittersweet victory - Will obtains the Kruks, like kangaroos crossed with camels, which enable him to continue his journey.
8. Which of these locations, based on one of the largest structures made in the real world in an Asian country, is home to the sizzling Sand Fanger, who guards another Mystic Statue?

Answer: Great Wall of China

The Great Wall of China is a very linear dungeon, which is not too surprising given its layout - it is tall, and stretches far from left to right. Lance ran away here after he believed Lilly snubbed his romantic advances - however, Lilly and Lance have a romantic reunion after Will deals with the Sand Fanger, and both of them decide to stay in Watermia for good.

Pollucci19 also tells of the real world Great Wall of China: The Great Wall of China initially started out as a series of smaller walls to protect the northern border of China against nomadic marauders or military strikes. These commenced during the 7th century BC and were eventually linked to form one wall. Over time this has been damaged, destroyed in parts, redesigned, rebuilt or renovated. It now covers the entire northern border of the country. In addition to the protection aspect it also provided the government with the opportunity to set up numerous checkpoints to charge merchants tariffs for use of the Silk Road.
9. The Pyramid, home to the final Mystic Statue, is found near the desert town of Dao.

Answer: True

Dao is a desert town of poor repute - one chilling conversation held in one house entails a slaver who claims that, in regard to four girls weaving carpets, that they will be doing so for forty years, and that Will, about their age, should feel lucky he's not in the same boat. As you might have inferred, Dao is town rife with slavery, and Will does not stay here for long.

The Pyramid, almost certainly based on the pyramids of Giza, had never been explored by man before in the game; simply because it couldn't have been. Will must turn into the Shadow transformation, which enables him to sink under the layers of thick rock, and solve its puzzle, allowing him to awaken and challenge the dormant Mummy Queen for her Mystic Statue.
10. The final dungeon Will ascends to fight his heroic final battle has its conceptual origins in Biblical tale, and is a tall location on an abandoned island, only accessible by plane - which of these locations is it?

Answer: Tower of Babel

In the Tower of Babel, Will finds out that the Crystal ring which King Edward was looking for was actually hidden in his flute all along, and that Kara is the light side to his dark side. Atop the tower, combining their powers, and the powers of comrades, Will ascends to battle the comet that would evolve the planet too fast in his strongest form.

Tazman6619 informs us that the Tower of Babel was first mentioned in Genesis; 11:5-8. Its exact location is unknown but it has been associated with known structures. The most notable of these is Etemenanki, a ziggurat located in what was once Babylon, now Iraq, and built in the 6th Century BC. At one time it towered seven stories tall but now only ruins remain.
