Ok, for room 4, can anyone tell me

all the details on finding the non-magical word

please!

Reply

If anyone is still stuck on level 4 -

Like someone said above, there are 4 magic words, and one other word, in the room. Don't make it more complicated than it is.

Now, can anyone give me a clue for level 6? I'm still stuck on level 6...

BJ,

Recall the simple alphabet substitution code used for rooms one and...a bunch more. Each letter has a value. Subtract one from the value of each number, now what do you get if you let them become letters again?

Reply

stefano, you need to key in the "password" in the correct box

oh... please help me finish room 6. I know the spell i have the wand.... how can i cast the spell?

Oh! I just got the first room, it doesn't help that

Is it possible I am having flash problems on room 6..I have entered the other room,cast the spell,waved my wand.heard the bell...but no new message( or hint if you prefer). Should I return to first room and look "closly"?

Reply

i need help on room 4.

i have the four magic words:
sunshine
rainfall
growth
ingrain

But what do i do to turn the power on?

Reply

laptopdude,

convert "POWER" to numbers...P=16 O=15...and so on

Reply

Gar, you have to keep trying (pulling the lever) until the dots make sense. Hint: You will know you have the right dots when

the first letter is "A"

I am stuck on 6. When i entered the code i get a message about a script slowing down flash player and i clicked abort and am now stuck in a never-ending cycle between room 6 and the between-rooms animation.

Help???

For those of you in the endless loop after Level 6, Restart the game and select Quick Pass. You can jump right to a new level by entering the password from the previous level.

Reply

Laptopdude Its a bug. Restart the game and use the password on the quickpass system.

I am stuck on room 12

I know that I need to decrypt the letters at the top using the Playfair cypher but what is the code word I should use in the cypher itself? Anybody here yet?

level 5:

if you put in HS "hear" (guided by help note) a paper appears that says: 'no need(...)' this is the same with "taste" and "smell" but in "touch" it says: 'Oh yeah. For sure it will be useful'. Now, i touch everything and nothing happens. WHAT TO DO? help.

The dots on the wall are arranged in groups of six. What can you use with six dots and touching them?. Imagine literolly touching them.

Huzzah! I finally got a code that worked for room 5.

But then I thought that being literal-minded would also work on room 6.

I thought, "What's the

"Magic Word"?

but it turned out it wasn't "

Room 6:
In second room, flashing spiral. Now What??

I've read all the previous hints/clues and I am stumped.

level 6:

i have the, note, the "magic wand" (by typing magic wand in HS) i cast the ***** (spell) and i see a spiral in the wall

now what?

Reply

of course!

why didn't i think of that earlier? >_

Reply

Plz help. Im stuck on lvl 6.

I have the wand, i cast the spell, does the dinosaur do anything?

Reply

To whoever is stuck at lvl 6 after casting the spell.

If you cast it, then 3 pages should show up, with seemingly random letters, some +/- signs, and then numbers. Write these down and line them up horizontally so you have a letter +/- a number. And then figure it out!

Level 6

Have cast the spell and other than a little chiming sound nothing has happened.

Can anyone help please?

Marcelo, the clues to Room 6 are plentiful here.

Do what you did -- click and drag in a spiral -- in the main room, around the blank sheets of paper.

Aaahh Haaaaaaaa :)

if you really want the code for room 6 its

casting

Hmm... I'm drawing a blank on #13. Any suggestions?

Dan Someone:

Have you gotten rid of the white wall yet? If so...

look at the room carefully, something that is every room is different

If not

you need to find a way to reveal the rest of the room, it is a word that means reveal

Hope that helps

Well, that got me past the white...

But I can't figure out what's different, other than the keypad seems to be farther away from the door than usual.

You are on the right track with the keypad, examine it VERY carefully

Michael:

Get a decent map of constellations and look it over. There are some stars on the right-hand side of the screen that may give you a clue as to which constellation you need to name. (Though to tell the truth, I only saw three stars, not four, and I wound up guessing based on those three. But I was right.)

argh some one please please please help me on level 4 .. i've read all the things you have all posted but i still dont get it! how do you turn on the power???

try to light up all four stars, one of the words will help you narrow it down even further

Level 8 is sending me right batty :( I've spent the last 40 minutes doing search after search on Google looking at star maps but I just can't get it.

I don't have a Scooby Doo what am supposed to be doing with it.

EMDF:

How do you set the time on your computer ?
Just have to set the time on your computer to match the three clock-times indicated by the symbols to the left of the door

Reply

Am Iright in guessing that the 3 symbols

by the door are :- Cygnus, Cassiopeia and Draco?

This is first time I used the spoiler thingy so hope it works ok.

Could someone please give me an assist on the last 2 or 3 letters in the cipher decode? I know that "the answer is..." So I am just a little hung up at the end.

Reply

The symbols by the door in 8:

Match the lines on the vitruvian man clock.
Check which circles it intersects, and try to figure out the time that the hands indicate for each of them

DarcBlue,

You get one more hint from typing in a place you would go daily to see these stars.

Michael:

I found a page with a Javascript to decipher Playfair ciphertext. You need the keyword (which is available on one of the pieces of paper if you look close enough). Type the ciphertext (in all caps, two-letter groups) into the right hand box, enter the keyword up above, and hit the decipher button. Voila!

Reply

i see 4 circles that have lines in them...

which 2 to i shoot for?

Reply

and three clock-times? what???

Reply

Level 8:

The following spoilers *will reveal spoiling information"

Look at the pattern...what does it resemble?
What's round and has two entities that move around?

...A clock?

...Indeed. And what does a clock give you?

The time? Yes. Now how does this clock know the time?
How is it getting the information that encompasses the time?

...Your computer, perhaps?

So what happens if you change the time on your computer?

The time on the da vinci clock changes. Try it out.
Open up your time utility and change the time around.

So what are the lines on the clock and patterns near the
door mean? Perhaps you've seen that they match.

Try to light up the patterns' corresponding lines on the
clock. Where do the patterns' lines intersect?

Each patterns' lines intersect two dots on the clock: An
hour dot and a minute dot. Light up the two dots for
each pattern, and the pattern should light up near the
door. Repeat for all three.

Reply

For 8:

1. Notice the 2 Green dots on the clock. First try to figure out how it uses that to indicate time. Hint: It's a 24 hour clock.

2. The 3 lines intersect 6 circles. Each line intersects 2 circles. One being the hour circle, the other being the minute circle.

3. Find out the time that each line corresponds to.

4. Change the time in your computer to match each of those times one by one.

For those still stuck on lvl 6 (I was, for a long time...)

There are lots of hints here about how to cast the spell, and they're right, but...

... on my machine, anyways, it is *very* fiddly. I was convinced for a long time the hints were just wrong, I couldn't get it to go, but after tracing the spiral for about the twenty-fifth time, I think, it finally worked.

Reply

Ugh, totally stuck on the second part of lv 7. XD;; How do I begin/where do I start?

Reply

Lvl 13

Follow the directions of the arrows. Begin with "C". Jump from letter to letter.It will create a word when followed correctly.

PS. Don't follow the cracks.

Reply

Aaargh. Stuck on room 14. What do i do with the ...

calculator?

Reply

Level 7, pt. 2:

This will give revealing information.

Indeed, try not to complicate this one.

However, this one's tough to figure out.

Instead of clicking a handful of tiles a certain amount
of times...

The task is much simpler than that.

All you have to do is...

Click each tile once.

jboy:

She is blind and she's holding scales and a sword... She is a goddess and the personification of...

Justice. So Google

"goddess of Justice"

Level 14 was actually very simple.

What do you get when you read numbers upside down...

on a calculator?

And remember:

a zero could be an 'O' or a 'D'

Reply

Hey, I got #15 all by myself! Woohoo!

Hints:

Do you know what an acrostic is? Find one of those first.

Read down the left column.

Use that word in the HSsystem.
Then, as the new hint says, convert that same word.

Into binary, of course.

Take your new information and apply it to the "crucial" part of the puzzle.

Ignore the "helpful" part, and ignore the zeros.

Which letters in the "crucial" section correspond to the ones?

You should end up with your exit keyword.
