The Swamp

Keep going right as usual, until you see a cutscene in which you learn about Mui’s disagreement with water bodies.

Jump into the water as Lana and go right. Once you’re back on land, climb up the ledge, then climb onto the higher platform. Here, you’ll find a wooden log that you can drag. This is going to serve as our little raft for Mui.

Drag the log all the way left so that it falls into the water with Lana.

Continue dragging the log to the far left, and get Mui to follow you. It might take a couple of tries, but Mui will step onto the log. Drag the log all the way right, onto land.

Once you’re on land with the log, have Mui follow you again and go right. Send Mui up the high ledge and get them to drop the rope down. Climb the rope and go right.

Continue right to reach a new puzzle where Mui refuses to go into the water. Here, before you do anything else, swim to the far right and then crawl into the wall to the right, which is how you’ll reach the Sixth Shrine of the game.

Go back to the puzzle area once you’ve interacted with the shrine.

Begin by going into the water and stopping underneath the pressure pad flowers hanging from the middle platform. This will extend a tentacle to the left. Get Mui to follow you while the tentacle is extended, and Mui will make it all the way to the right-hand-side platform.

Go onto the right-hand-side platform as Lana and direct Mui to stand on the pressure pad flowers on the middle of the ledge. Jump onto the tentacle that’s now extended to the right, and jump onto the right-hand-side ledge from there.

Get Mui to follow you and move on from this puzzle area.

In the next puzzle area, we have a lever worm that Mui can hypnotize. Mui can then move the ‘lever’ left or right, which causes the big organism in the middle to ingest or expel the water in the pool ahead.

Begin by having Mui hypnotize the lever worm. Pull the lever worm to the right to raise the water level as high as it can go, then swim onto the ledge to the right.

Once Lana is on the ledge, push the lever worm to the left and drain the water in the pool as much as you can, so that there are pockets of land below. This is enough for Mui, so get Mui to follow you and they’ll cross the pool.

As usual, send Mui to drop the rope down, climb it, and proceed right.

Continue right and fall off the ledge right into the water below. Swim to the far left to find a hidden passage that will take you to the Seventh Shrine in the game. Swim back out once you’re done with the shrine.

Now go to the far right, climb the ledge, and get on the rope. Swing to the left and pull the boards off. This will allow Mui to join you, so go back right past the rope and have Mui hypnotise the barrier plant to find a way through.

Continue right, jumping across stones, until you encounter a rope and a breakable floor. For now, ignore both and plunge into the water, then swim right. Go as far right as you can in this area, and then climb the two ledges so that you can get on the rope.

Swing to the left and get on the platform there. Continue left, onto the two ropes, and then to the platform to the left of the ropes. Once you’re on the final platform, drop down onto the breakable wooden floor to break through it and allow Mui to pass through.

Planet of Lana Walkthrough – The Swamp

Have Mui hypnotise the lever worm and then move the lever worm so that the water level goes as far down as it can. Now go down into the water as Lana. Go far to the right and climb the ledge there, then go right again. You’ll find a log here that you can use to ferry Mui across.

However, the stone platform in the middle is blocking your way. So have Mui move the lever worm again, making the water level go up. Drag the log to the left once the water level has gone above the platform.

Planet of Lana Walkthrough – The Swamp

Once you’re clear of the platform, move the lever worm again and lower the water level as low as it will go. Drag the log to the left as far as it can go, then raise the water level all the way up. Drag the log to the left again, and have Mui follow you, i.e. get on the log.

Drag the log right and climb onto the platform, having Mui follow you as you go. Finally, at the end of the area, have Mui hypnotise the barrier plant and clear the way.

After running right for a while, you’ll reach a crashed, moss-covered spaceship. Climb on the ledge, then the rope, and then the two platforms to the left, so that you can access the roof of the spaceship. Run right once you’re on the roof.
