Once more all it takes to escape from the room is to find five candies: candy rooms #03 by Funkyland.

Short, but very sweet :-). Love it!

First!

Fun and easy. I had a little trouble with the card table and the 4-digit code, but I got it after a bit.

PK said...

I guess I'm dumb. I can't figure out the color code. I assume it has something to do with the books, but I can't even read the numbers on two of the books, much less figure out how they're connected to just the four colors presented. :P

jaymar said...

PK: the books aren't a clue to anything. Hint to find the color clue - this game creator likes moving parts.

PK said...

Thanks, jaymar. Those books being in similar colors was really throwing me off. Once I started ignoring them, I was able to notice the connection point needed to finish that puzzle.

I didn't understand the clues on the card table so thought I'd just try the numbers that were there... Got it right first time - but I don't know why! lol

Sweet and simple, a nice addition to this series. Giant magnets are a bit on the cliche side for me though. So do you think you can eat the candy key after you use it?

FWIW, there is another new Minoto game out there, http://mac.rash.jp/games/dasyutu/05_2/en/index.html

He seems to have changed his format though and they are are more traditional type escape games instead of the expected goofy point and click.

Bart said...

@chefsinger yes it seems Minoto is just releasing remakes of his old games now, that new one is a remake of this one I posted in 2008: http://www.bontegames.com/2008/01/escape-game-of-breakfast.html

I am at a complete loss as to what the card table is telling what is the K and M?

Anonymous said...

please give me a clue to the card table ?

Anonymous said...

hi

the code as below:

K ? M

?= L

you should take numbers as L shape
= 4836

thanks

I was expecting to have to drag the coin out with the magnet. Still not having any trouble finishing.

Cheers for the card clue ???

Still not getting the colours. Can anyone offer another hint?

I refuse to believe that anybody figured the card table out except through sheer trial and error. Nor would you figure out where to put the lamp pull cord except through a pixel hunt. Puzzles that have a logical solution are better than ones like this that are pretty much just random. Thumbs down.

Sorry I disagree, there are far harder puzzles than this one. Too easy and they disapoint !!!

Planets said...

Ok, I put the cord with the ball on it on the sign with the men with the part hats but now it's not doing anything to help me with the color code. That's all I have left and I've used all of my items. Can someone help!!

pull the cord !!!

Believe or don't believe... It took a long time, but I did figure out the K > ? > M clue. I tried things with the color red, with roman numerals, with "King to - what card would start with M?? Is M Japanese for Ace??". I tried to relate the cards to the colored book spines. I tried putting the cards in alphabetical order (E for 8, etc). I added the pips up by suit, by color, by column. I multiplied their values. Finally I asked myself "How on earth are K and M related to cards, the book colors, or to anything else for that matter, except in alphabetic order with L in between... oh - you don't suppose...??" and there it was.

If I hadn't had plenty of time to fool with it, I would have given up for sure.

I too was able to figure out the two puzzles on my own, but the first was more by accident: I happened to click where you need to put it while I had the cord selected. As for the card table, since often there are codes that are alphanumerical, I was trying to do something where I turned k and m into numbers, then put 8 and 1 in between them, and since that didn't work, I tried 4 and 5, then 3 and 6, but since none of those worked, I decided to try a different approach, where all 4 numbers were from the card table. Then I thought: all of the cards are technically between k and m, so there must be something that distinguishes these 4 cards. So I thought, what do k and m have in common, that might have something to do with what cards I pick? All I could think of was they were both letters in the alphabet, in which case L would be between them. And then I realized that an L formation could be made with 4 of the cards: 4,8,3 and 6.

Personally, I didn't find the card table hard at all. It threw me at first because I was convinced "K" stood for "King" and couldn't figure out how "M" fit in. But after a bit I realized my first assumption may have been wrong. I pulled my scope back and saw that the puzzle itself was really:

K > [?] > M

It's really not THAT hard of a puzzle once you make that realization, because that's just the alphabet.
