Tomb A Day #8 - Tomb Raider, Level 6: Colosseum

The amphitheater in this level is one of the biggest enclosed rooms in the Classic franchise. It may not look like much now, but I remember thinking “Whoa” the first time I stood at the edge the arena and swiveled the camera around.

I really enjoy the mysterious background music that plays as you climb the steps to the amphitheater. It kicks in just as the far side of the room comes into view, adding to the gigantic room’s sense of wonder.

Then Pierre, not one to respect the atmosphere set up by the game, starts shooting at you. My theory about how he keeps getting ahead of you is that he sneaks by while you’re busy picking up secrets in side rooms.
