StarBoy's Walkthrough: The Lost Vikings (SNES) Stage 3

StarBoy's Walkthrough:
(SNES edition)
January 27th, 2013
Stage 3 - TLPT
Item(s) - 1 red key, 1 yellow key, 1 wipeout bomb
You start off right near an elevator.  Head down with all three vikings.
At the bottom floor you'll notice a "?" block.  Read over it to learn that Erik can break down walls with his head by charging towards them.
Switch to Erik (if you're not playing as him already) and run straight towards the wall and press the Y button while moving to ram yourself towards it.  You must make sure that you run a certain distance in order for it to work, otherwise you must try again.  If you did it right, the wall should break down.
Climb up the stairs ahead of you and you'll find your path blocked by a laser barrier; to its right however is a button which can shut it down.  Now switch to Baleog and shoot an arrow towards the button to disable it.
Walk ahead and pass the gate to get to the teleporter.  Read the "?" block and it will tell you to activate it with the A button.  Have all three vikings stand in the teleporter and press A to teleport them to the other part of the stage.
You are now in a room with two "?" blocks side by side.  The one of the right will tell you that should Olaf's shield be above his head he can glide down slowly to the ground.  That is one big advantage he's got over his two companions.  The one on the left will tell you that certain gates will not open unless you find the appropriate key that will fit the keyhole.  As an immediate example, the gate to your left can only be unlocked if you find the red key.
This time play as Olaf and glide down with the shield to find a red key.  Grab it and then fall down to the left to talk to a friendly, cuddly alien.
The alien will tell you that everyone in the ship is talking about the vikings' escape and that they have been captured by the Croutonian ruler Tomator who has collected them (among other life forms) to show on his display.  And I absolutely love the quip the alien gives at the end, it's just funny!  XD
Once you're done talking with the alien turn Olaf to the right to activate the teleporter to regroup with his friends.
Press the X button to insert the red key in the keyhole and the gate will open up.  Proceed forward.
A little ahead of you is a laser barrier which is blocking your progress.  Switch back to Baleog to shoot the button to disable it.
Move a little more forward to find a wall blocking your way.  Switch to Erik and ram down the wall in order to get through.  Once Erik regains his senses, keep moving forward.
At the end of the floor is an elevator.  Bring all three vikings on top of the elevator and ride it down to the bottom-most floor.
Enter the gate and read over the "?" block.  Read it to learn that if Olaf places the shield on top of his head it will help to give Erik a boast.  Walk a little next to the closest platform as Olaf and position his shield upward.  Now change to Erik to jump on his shield, jump up from it and onto the platform.
Jump up another platform to find that there are two items: a yellow key on the upper left platform and a wipeout bomb on the upper right one.  Grab the key but make sure not to get shot by the enemy soldier on the opposite platform.  This part is optional: but since Baleog cannot jump and Erik can't attack enemies, the only way to kill the enemy soldier is by detonating the wipeout bomb.  Once that's over with, head back down as Erik.
Walk up to the yellow keyhole and insert the yellow key you just acquired to unlock the gate.  Now make Olaf lead the way with his shield in front of him.
If you move a little forward you'll see an enemy soldier head towards you.  Should the shield be ahead of Olaf it will not only prevent enemy fire from passing through you but at the same time keep the enemy at bay.  It will keep firing at you but it's no use (these guys aren't exactly the smartest of enemies).  Switch to Baleog to shoot down or slay the enemy soldier.  You're almost at the exit.
Lead the way again with Olaf and climb up the stairs, but make sure that both enemies are blocked on the left by Olaf's shield.  This will give you enough time to climb up as Baleog and take them both down.  Now head off to the exit with all three vikings and you're done!  =)
Congratulations, you survived Stage 3!!!
