two [browser]

Two by Chris Ainsley is a treasure-hunt style text adventure game in which almost everything consists of two words. Can you find the 10 treasures?

I found 2 items that might be treasures but my score is still 0/10

Perhaps I lack the right verb. I don't know how to use the ladder. Neither to climb the boulder nor the tall trees.

Bart said...

You can DROP the ladder, then you will see a new direction UP if you can climb it.

thx a lot, Bart! :)

The score relates to the number of treasures you have placed in the treasure room.

Catherine Munson said...

Any hints. I have two treasures, two fruit and climbed the ladder...

Chris said...

Catherine ...

You have to get to the island, maybe a boat would help?

The eggs have value, if you can find a buyer.

Oh man, that 1838 puzzle was a pain in the butt. Great game, a little annoying that you have to drop the ladder before you can climb it.

Please disregard my "cave game" comment.
I am so sorry about that.

Good game. You really need to examine everything to move ahead.

Mikey said...

I can't get the sword and I can't get past the cat. I'm hooked but I'm stuck.

Chris said...

Mikey,

You need the help of the dog.

First, find an object that a dog might want. The dog will signal to you if you have something it likes.

Next, pet the dog, and experiment.

If you can't figure out what to do after petting the dog, decode this base64 text below for the answer:

I hope someone makes a walkthrough on YouTube for this game so I can get past and understand a bunch of things.

Mikey said...

Thank you Chris.

Mikey said...

Stumped again, I have the diamond flour garlic cant make rope and in the dungeon.

Mikey said...

Made it to the numbers puzzle. Now REALLY STINKING STUMPED!!!!!

Mikey said...

Downloaded that chart. Finished. Don't understand how you could do it without cheating though.

Anonymous said...

@Kaden Vanciel The page with the game information has a list of hints that should help you finish the game.

Kaden Vanciel said...

Where can I find the nest?

Nat R. said...

Yeah, the numbers puzzle is kind of evil. I got close just using trial and error, and then looked at the hint and groaned at the last variable I wasn't changing...

Nat R. said...

Yes, I beat it now with only a couple more hints. That riddle dude is useless, sadly.

Chris said...

Thanks to Bart for posting about this game, and I really enjoy hearing all comments, positive and negative. It's all constructive. Thank you.

I posted an update of the game to solve a few little gotchas (seems quite a few people were not standing the ladder, propping the leader, resting the ladder, or leaning the ladder before climbing it). Now you can just climb the ladder and it will put it down for you.

I also noticed a few people were using LOOK APPLE, LOOK FOUNTAIN, instead of examine. I added an alias for this at the (Adventuron) system level now.

The numbers puzzle I don't apologise for. It's a late game puzzle and it's not super difficult once you know the trick. It's about noticing correlation. A bit of struggle gives you a better kick at the end of it. And of course, I posted the puzzle dependency diagram and hints if it's really standing in the way of your enjoyment :-)

Putting a red herring of an item downstream of the riddle man was a little bit naughty, but his riddle was so easy anyway, I didn't mind sacrificing his item.

A lot of people assume the flour is useless too. They'd be wrong. But it doesn't have to be used.

I'm stuck... Made boat but can't work out command to use it to get to the island

Anonymous said...

@Anonymous 13:58
Thanks it worked! I don't know why I didn't think of that command haha...

Anonymous said...

Something that caught me out was the "push button" doesn't work while "press button" does.

I really liked this game! Chris Ainsley has done a good puzzle game that took me probably an hour to finish.
Some of the puzzles are really tricky and sometimes a bit overly complicated to figure out. But nevertheless a good challenge! Eager to try your next one!

Nests are usually built in high up locations...

Kaden Vanciel said...

I got the apple, but now I can't get the eggs. My hands are full.

Anonymous said...

Kaden, you can drop objects anywhere you like using a DROP command:

DROP eggs

The puzzle in the tree however is that the eggs and the apple both can't be taken at the same time.

Kaden Vanciel said...

Okay. But who am I supposed to sell the eggs to when I type "sell eggs"?

Kaden Vanciel said...

I just gave the eggs to the shopkeeper and got a gold coin. I'll ask another question when I get stuck.

Anonymous said...

Can someone post the exact order of the steps needed to enter the code?
It is a frustratingly long process to enter new attempts.
I am afraid I entered the correct answer in the wrong way.

LOOK STATUE doesnt work for EXAMINE STATUE

Eric Barron said...

How do i make the boat?

Anonymous said...

Eric,

Type MAKE BOAT or CHOP WOOD at the edge of the lake (You require the axe).
