Shields Up... and Down
|Shields Up... and Down|
|← Gloo Gloo||The Dark Creatures Rise →|
Rayman and his friends start out by defeating a few Minotaurs, the main enemies of Olympus Maximus. As soon as they get stuck from advancing because of fireballs, they call on Murfy to move a smiling platform that acts like a Flying shield to protect the heroes from the fireballs. While Murfy continues to move more Flying shields, the team defeats more Minotaurs including a red one that shoots fireballs from his mouth. In the background are cannons that shoot fireballs and also constellations in the sky. The first secret area can be found by Murfy moving a certain Flying shield down near a fake fog. The first Skull Coin can be acquired by jumping on top of a Minotaur flying in the sky. As the team progresses, dark grey clouds begin to cover the sunny sky. Certain platforms begin to collapse. At one point, Gandalf will give the Blue Punch power-up to the heroes to defeat Minotaurs that are on metal plates. The second Skull Coin is slightly covered by a fake dark cloud. The second secret area is at the top, near a Flying shield that must be moved up. The music changes as even more dark clouds appear. A strange hand appears from the sky and attempts to strike lighting on the heroes; this is probably a reference to the Greek God Zeus. Murfy needs to slowly move a Flying shield to protect the team from getting hit. The exit is close by.
Queen Teensie area
In this strange looking square shaped platform, Murfy must move the wheel around while the heroes maneuver around the spiky walls.
King Teensie area
|Shields Up... and Down - Invaded|
It is unlocked once the original level is completed and if the player goes far enough in the Toad Story world.
The level is a portion of the original one, located close to the place where the Teensie king from this level was imprisoned. The door is still visible in the invaded level but a vine obstructs the way to get into it.
Because there is no more shield to carry out the player(s), they must use the toads' parachutes in order to proceed, avoiding air missiles.
