[Episode 5] Freeing Dr. Curtis

Summary

After defeating Lady, Acarno is now close to reuniting with Dr. Velter Curtis before fleeing Jamelgalda for good.

You must locate Dr. Curtis’ cell in order to free him and escape the prison.

Before freeing Dr. Curtis, there are some items to collect. Ensure you have the PARRA JACKET and SPIKED BOOTS equipped and prepare for some jumping around on the floating pods which surround the platform on which you’re stood – note this section can be tricky, so it may be a good idea to save your progress.

Aim; Head over to the gap in the railings behind the control panels and use the HOOK SHOT to get on top of the floating pod with "01" on the front.
Jump; On top of pod "01", ensure Acarno's back is to the platform on which you previously fought Lady. The closest pod to your left is number "15" - jump across.
Item; Pick up the GRENADE on top of pod "15".
Aim; Stood on pod "15", use the HOOK SHOT and aim for the area shown, which - although it is not clear until you are actually stood on top - is pod "11".
Item; Pick up the MAGAZINE CARTRIDGE on top of pod "11".
Aim; Turn to face pod "15" again and use the HOOK SHOT to make your way upwards onto pod "08".
Prepare to drop; Equip the SHOCK ABSORBER BOOTS. Face the platform in front of you and rotate the camera so that you can see two identical platforms below - carefully drop down to the second, ensuring you don't fall down the gap in the middle of the platform. Using your parachute will help slow your descent, making for an easier landing.
Item; Being careful not to fall from the platform, pick up the 1000 CREDITS.
Aim; Equip the SPIKED BOOTS again and use the HOOK SHOT in the direction of the main platform on which you fought with Lady earlier. This will land you on pod "12".
Aim again; On top of pod "12", use the HOOK SHOT once again to get onto pod "07".
Item; On top of pod "07" pick up the TIME BOMB. Once you have the item, use your parachute to glide back to pod "12".
Aim; Back on top of pod "12", use the HOOK SHOT one last time to return to the platform on which you fought with Lady earlier.
Control panels; Head over to the control panels and use both the SILVER KEY CARD and GOLD KEY CARD, finally freeing Dr. Curtis.
