This was a very good escape game. It wasn't so easy that I knew how to solve it instantly, but it wasn't hard enough to make me stop playing. Great pick Bart. :)

The panel to the right of the plant pot rotates. On the back is a pattern of:

So from top to bottom the marked ones are 4, 3, 1, 2, 4, 1. Pull the ropes in this order.

The green scroll has a pattern that matches the mouths of the faces. So the order is spikey, smile, frown, flat.

Across from the room with the dice puzzle is the moon doors. Click the drawer where you found the throwing star (under the right door). Count the points on the throwing stars. 6434
The hint on the red scroll after using it in the fire shows a hint like an I and a squared off 8.
Click the top left pattern until it shows 2 white squares in the corners near the middle slat. The middle slat should be dark in the middle. The bottom should be like the top slat (white in the corners near the middle slat). The right puzzle should have the middle slat dark in the middle and light at the edges (the top and bottom should have dark on the outer edges and light in the center by the middle slat)

Although it seems unimportant, you can jump by clicking yourself in the end animation. :) Although the ninja chasing you is unaffected...

NotMarian said...

Yay! 28 minutes. And I did it without help. That was fun...the kind of escape games I like.

20 min without help my first time

Carly said...

bah... not my thing. Gave up halfway through cause I got bored with it.

Anonymous said...

I made it through with one hint about where the sad face was, and I was mad cause that was such an easy find. I love 58 Works, and am glad to see a game from them again. Nice game.

Where do you find the thin rod that you put together with the thick rod?
Confused of where to find it :/
