9. Look outside. There’s an ice pick.

20111118-182601.jpg

10. Try to get the ice pick with the rope. It doesn’t work. Attach the rope to the balaclava.

20111118-182500.jpg

11. Use the rope/balaclava to get the ice pick.

20111118-182625.jpg

12. Look behind the green cupboard. There’s a square block.

20111118-183214.jpg

13. Remove the balaclava from the rope. Try to use the rope to get the block. It will tell you it’s too thick. So use the ice pick on the balaclava to unravel it.

20111118-183146.jpg

14. Attach the red string to the block.

20111118-183303.jpg

20111118-183237.jpg

15. Pull on the string and you get the square block.

20111118-183335.jpg

16. Use the ice pick on the drawer of the small table to the left of the door.

20111118-184414.jpg

17. Take the triangle block.

20111118-184449.jpg

18. Look behind the white desk. There’s a key. You can’t reach it on your own.

20111118-184959.jpg

19. Attach the knife to the rope.

20111118-185027.jpg

20. Use the rope/knife to reach the key.

20111118-185048.jpg

21. Use the key on the bottom drawer of the desk.

20111118-185355.jpg

22. Take the circle block.

20111118-185420.jpg

23. Examine the blue notebook on the dresser by the window. Look at it carefully.

20111118-191534.jpg

20111118-191545.jpg

24. Open the box next to the notebook. Use the information from the notebook to solve this puzzle, as follows. (Flip the blocks to get either white or black.):

20111118-191632.jpg

20111118-191643.jpg

20111118-191653.jpg

25. Something opened. Zoom out the outside of the box. There’s a small drawer.

20111118-191725.jpg

26. Take the black sheet of paper.

20111118-191800.jpg

27. Remove the knife from the rope.

28. Go to the tackle box on the white desk. Try to open it with the ice pick. It doesn’t work. Try the knife, and it gets jammed in there. We need something to hit it with.

20111118-193220.jpg

29. Go back to the block puzzle that we solved. Take the circle block.

30. Hit the knife with the circle block. The box opens.

20111118-193250.jpg

31. Take the “O panel”.

20111118-193316.jpg

32. Go to the window and hold the piece of paper up to it. There’s an uneven surface.

20111119-010132.jpg

20111119-010140.jpg

33. Use the knife on the box of pencils to get a sharpened pencil.

20111119-010210.jpg

34. Zoom in on the paper. Use the pencil on it to trace the surface. It looks like this:

20111119-010246.jpg

35. The tracing on the piece of paper shows how to get the numbers for the safe. 63 = 3, 18, 21
63 = (6-3), (6×3), (63/3).
So 99 = (9-9), (9×9), (99/3).
99 = 0, 81, 33

20111119-010246.jpg

36. Go got he safe on the wall and type in 08133.

20111119-012847.jpg

20111119-013045.jpg

49. Go to the bookcase to the right of the door and zoom in on the plaque on the wall, as well as the sheet of paper next to the red box.

20111119-013522.jpg

20111119-013529.jpg

40. Open the red box. Place the two panels and arrange the rest of the pieces so it looks like this:

20111119-013608.jpg

20111119-013614.jpg

41. The drawer of the box unlocks. Open it.

20111119-013644.jpg

42. Take out the shard of metal (or piece of key).

20111119-013710.jpg

43. Examine the picture frame near the green cupboard. It now has a use but we can’t reach it.

20111119-014547.jpg

44. Use the ice pick on the rest of the pencils to make holes in them.

20111119-010902.jpg

44. Slice the thread into pieces with the knife.

20111119-014621.jpg

45. Use the pencils with the thread and you make a long pole.

20111119-014651.jpg

46. Use the pole on the picture frame and it falls.

20111119-014811.jpg

20111119-014824.jpg

20111119-014854.jpg

    How do you combine items? I cant combine anything and I’ve been trying for 45 mins tapping, selecting item, following the instructions from the game?

            I have the knife, the rope, the balaclava, box of pencils, the white triangle, and the ice pick.

            Thanks so much for helping us all!

              Did you look behind the cupboard and try to take the square block?

              And no problem 🙂 If you like my walkthroughs, share the links and follow me on Twitter to see when I add new ones 🙂

      you have to try using to rope first then when it says that the rope is too thick it will let you unravel the balaclava

      hope this helped

    I tried getting my rope to connect with the balaclava as you said, using both my phone, and and iPad, and I can’t get it to work… I select one in detail, then tap on the other so it has the red box around it, and then I click on the magnified item, but I get nothing except a description of the one item… Maybe I need to delete and download again, or possibly a problem with new ios5 update?

          Oh whoops, mixed the two up. Try looking out the window first. It might not let you combine until you’ve seen the ice pick (and tried using the rope on it). If that’s the case, let me know and I’ll add that in.

          Did that work? If so, I’ll add it in.

          Yeah, it’s really irritating at first (Strange House drove me nuts!) but you get used to it after you play more of their games.

            Yeah, it worked after that… And I’m not sure what step got it to work eventually because I went through everything possible all over before attempting, but with your steps, I couldn’t put holes in the pencil (step 35) so I guess I had to do something else first.

    some clue are not logic, for 24, how do u get the order?? for 34, if 63=3(6-3), 18(6X3), 21(63/3), then 72 should be 5(7-2), 14(7X2), 36(72/2) and not 24

      The logic is a bit flawed. But the game logic is

      1. First number – second number
      2. First number * second number
      3. Both digits as a whole / 3

      So you get
      63 = 3(6-3) 18(6*3) 21(63/3)
      72 = 5(7-2) 14(7*2) 24(72/3)

      the code will follow the above pattern
      99 = 0(9-9) 81(9*9) 33(99/3)

    Ive tried putting the tiles in the box countless times but i haven’t heard the ‘click’!!! I’m following the order in the notebook by putting the tiles in the first order, taking them out, doing the second one, and so on… Still nothing!! What am I doing wrong?

    How do you rearrange the pieces in the red box (man, woman, guest). I’ve been trying to move them around but it keeps saying ‘the panels have been inserted’ or ‘there is nothing important here’

    hey, I see alot of people with questions about the puzzle with the notebook but haven’t seen any real answers posted so I figured I’d share once I figured it out.

    first off, ignore the colors! ( I’ll explain later) they have nothing to do with the shapes.

    that said look at each an every shape on their own and you will quickly notice the puzzle is not nearly as hard as it seems.
    if you think of the 6 spaces as a clock you will notice…

    1. the circle moves ONE space counter clockwise in each frame of the notebook

    2. the triangle moves ONE space clockwise in each frame

    3. the square moves TWO spaces clockwise in each frame

    given that knowledge you can now determine where you should put the different shapes.

    now for the colors.

    the color is entirely based upon the 6 spaces, not the shapes. it is simply we only see the color when a shape is present in any one space.
    in the end it is really rather simple, almost like a light switch. the spaces are in two groups and simply alternate between black and white with each frame. (the fourth clue in the notebook is what helped give it away for me)

    so for example in the first frame, using b for black and w for white the colors are

    b b w
    b w w

    and for the second

    w w b
    w b b

    and so on alternating back and forth, independent of the shapes.

    hopefully that really long winded explaination helped somebody trying to figure it out.

    I am stuck like M above
    “How do you rearrange the pieces in the red box (man, woman, guest). I’ve been trying to move them around but it keeps saying ‘the panels have been inserted’ or ‘there is nothing important here’”
