It is in the pyramid of the moons. There is a riddle somewhere in the game (helpfile I think) that basically tells you that 12 inchworms makes a foot.

Look for a big room with lots of inchworms in it (sorry, can't remember where in the level it is). There will be a few pits that you can get over but the inchworms cannot, and on the far left is a moon icon (one of the ones where if you stand long enough, keen moons the screen). Get 12 inchworms to that and a big concrete foot appears, taking you to the forbidden temple.

The hard part is the temple itself: there are so many stages that need precision timing (miss the beat by .1 seconds and you will die). I would be surprised if anyone has finished this without saving.

I just use the God cheat :) Just for fun. I play it separately from the rest of the game. You can also do ALT 2 ENTER and F10 W and warp to LEVEL 16.

The debug mode is ENTER+A+2, I thought.

Follow up with F10+N for no clipping and simply walk through the mountains/forest to it.

You also need to use the i think yellow key to get to the moon icon. (Not where it is ment to be used).

I am at that part of the level... but I can't see the moon icon? I've checked the entire floor. Both the far left and right. Do I need to play it on "hard" or something?

No, there should be a gem locked door, on the far right (i think, might be left). You need to use the gem key here (NOT where it is ment to be used).

That doesn't matter, just get 12 worms together.

The moon symbol is on the other side of the gate. (It looks just like all the other moons you see in the temple) It is small and just an outline on the floor.
