Original version

The entrance to the Precipice in the Hall of Doors

Phase 1

This level takes place in a wide canyon, where Rayman is in pursuit by the Robo-Pirate army shooting bombs and shells at him. He has to escape them by running across a weak pier, climbing on nets, and jump whenever bits of it are blasted off.

Phase 2

Rayman enters a cave and follows another wooden pier, which leads him to a tower the Pirates built that sinks under rising water (reminiscent to the flooding levels in the original Rayman), while bombs and rolling kegs try to slow him down.

Phase 3

Rayman comes out somewhere else in the canyon, and is still in pursuit across wooden piers. There is then a cave with a bottomless pit, which Rayman has to glide through until he lands on another pier. At the end of this, he ends up on a pirate stronghold which was built over a cliff, still under attack by a Ninja Henchman and bombs. Notably, these bombs can hit the Ninja Henchman, inflicting him 5 damage (one third of its resistance). Once the pirate is defeated, Rayman can exit after freeing the Teensie.

PlayStation 2 version

This version plays out as part of a large mission to destroy 2 generators to enter The Lava Sanctuary. It has had many alterations made, based around the fact that it now has 4 phases. Phase 2 has been removed and now features as Phase 1 of the Echoing Caves. Phase 3 has become phase 2 accordingly, but the level now features phases 2 and 3 of the original Echoing Caves as phases 3 and 4, concluding with a Ninja Henchman battle as the player attempts to destroy the generator.

A pirate ship in the GBC adaptation

In the Game Boy Color adaptation, the Precipice directly follows the Echoing Caves, and it also features warships, though they don't move at all. It is also the only time that Rayman fights a pirate, aside from the final battle of course.
