Tomb Raider III: Adventures of Lara Croft NLNMAS is known for being one of the most difficult challenge to complete. It also takes quite some time. Lara can now crawl and sprint. In the PC version, there are health crystals, but these are considered healing and should not be used for the challenge. It is possible to install a patch to remove them, and this is highly recommended so you don't accidentally use a health crystal.

One of the levels, Coastal Village, has 4 secrets, but only 3 are counted in the end level statistics. It has been commonly decided to pick up all the secrets in this level, resulting in a 4/3 end level statistics. As a result, the end game statistics will show 60/59 secrets collected.

The first area to be played is India. You can then choose between Nevada, London, and South Pacific. It is recommended to use the following order India, Nevada, South Pacific, London and finish with Antarctica. When arriving in Nevada, Lara will lose all her weapons, and it is advised to go there first to recover her weapons before the next areas. This is only a recommendation and should you want to take another path, feel free to do so!

A very difficult level for this challenge is RX-Tech Mines. It is extremely challenging and will require practice to complete. Around the end of the level, there’s a swimming section which must be completed very quickly since Lara takes damage when staying too long in the freezing water. When done successfully, you will have only a little health left to finish the level. One wrong swim, and Lara might die! Be careful.

Upon collecting all the secrets and after the end credits, a bonus level will be accessible: All Hallows (London). It is NOT necessary to complete this level for the NLNMAS challenge, but you can if you like!
