The Great Lava Pursuit
|The Great Lava Pursuit|
|← The Amazing Maze||Up, Up and Escape! →|
The Great Lava Pursuit is the fifth level of Olympus Maximus, the fifth world in Rayman Legends. It is the second level in this world where the player is assisted by Murfy. They also meet the fifth Dark Teensy.
The heroes land in a rocky labyrinth area with bodies of lava below. Minotaurs can be seen moving around on the rocky mountains in the background. Gandalf grants the team the power to use the Blue Punch as they approach the lava. Shortly after, they encounter the fifth Dark Teensy, torturing the girl Teensie like the previous ones. Upon spotting the heroes, he straps the girl to his mechanical vehicle and rides away; the team must chase after him. They call on Murfy to move flying shields to block the continuous fireballs and to get by the larger gaps of lava.
As the chase continues, flames appear from above and below. Rocky platforms collapse and sink into the lava, and Minotaurs appear on metal platforms in the air. Soon after, the first secret area can be found. It is located at the top, where a flying shield can be moved upwards.
After dropping down and avoiding the many flames, the heroes continue to close in on the Dark Teensy, while battling Minotaurs with the Blue Punch. The second secret area is located at the top. A flying shield will take the players to it. Pure red lava bursts begin to appear. A Skull Coin is next to one. Eventually, the girl Teensie pokes the nose of the Dark Teensy and escapes to the heroes. The level is completed.
Queen Teensie area
Murfy needs to rotate a small platform so the heroes will avoid the fireballs being shot from turrets.
King Teensie area
|The Great Lava Pursuit - Invaded|
Unlike the other levels, it is unlocked once the player(s) succeed to free enough Teensies in the invaded levels. Of course, the original level must be unlocked.
The exact location of this level in the normal one is unknown. In this one, Murfy can't use shields to help his friends. Instead, serpent flutes emerge from the lava and allow the player(s) to ride them and proceed to free the three Teensies. They have to avoid spiky snakes, lava and lavaroots, and kick some Mariachis.
This level is also the only one with a five-skull difficulty not invaded by Dark Rayman.
