    Use long stick to get the bucket. I can’t unlock brown chest with the code 3284. I saw all numbers but it wont work. Also I still can get small
    box out of rock

      Once you have the bucket (retrieved with long stick) turn to where it tells you that you’ll freeze if you go in the water. Select the bucket and fill it with water. Then pour the water into the hollow rock.

        Yet again on this game, you are my lifesaver. I should’ve left my comment like it was before I fixed it, because it said “Yet again on this game you ATE my lifesaver”, and that would’ve been pretty damn funny! Thank you again for your brilliance. I need a direct link to you, so i can just ask which of these games you’ve done, and only play those so you can help me!!! LOL. Thank you again!! Kim

    Okay, I’m about to give up on this game! I love these escape games and have played all the free ones, but this one is ridiculously difficult.
    I have the rope and that’s all. I can’t figure out where to go next. I can’t understand any of the clues except the one under the coconut shell (but I haven’t encountered the lock for it yet).
    Can someone please help me? I just need a couple of hints to get me going again. For example, how do I open the brown cabinet under the boat and how can I get more tools?
    Please help me!!!!

  4. Joe

    Okay. After taking a bit of a break from the game and then going back to it, I was able to make some progress and open the brown cabinet and gather some tools!
    Good motto: Never give up!
    On to the next riddle!

    Castaway walkthrough

    1. Go to the piece of driftwood on the sand in front of you and see the letters C, with a 4-petal flower, and D, with a 6-petal flower. Flip the driftwood to see the letters CABD. Turn left, click on the top of the small cave above the three cabinets and see the letters A, with a 5-petal flower, and B, with an 8-petal flower. Put the numbers of petals in the order on the back of the driftwood and you have 4586, so go to the lock of the maroon cabinet and key in this number. Open the door, then the middle drawer and pick up a fish key
    2. Turn left, use the key to open the box in front of you and pick up a trowel. Then read the message on the inside of the lid: you have to find a star
    3. Turn right and zoom in on the starfish with a stake through it on a pile of sand. Move the starfish aside, then use the trowel on the sandpile to reveal a treasure chest, then click on the left side of the chest to see the number 31232. Back up, then click on the two green cabinets and zoom in on the piece of wood in front of the smaller cabinet. This tells you that 3 means up, 2 means down and 1 means neither, which means both clues can be translated as up, leave alone, down, up, down. Zoom in on the top of the smaller cabinet and click twice on the first lever to move it up, once on the third lever to move it down, then twice on the fourth and once on the fifth. Then open the door of the larger green cabinet and pick up a long stick
    4. Turn right, click between the palm trees on the rocks behind them, then again on the high point of the rocks, on the left, to see a bucket in a crack in the rocks. Use the stick to pick it up, then turn round so you are facing a lighthouse in the distance, go to the water’s edge and fill the bucket with water. Next, turn left and zoom in on the large rock slightly left of centre in the foreground. Pour the water into the hole in the top of the rock so a box floats to the surface, then pick up the box and click on the pair of earrings left behind in the hole
    5. Click on the bottom of the box to flip it and see the message red=feather, blue=bird, yellow=eye and green=egg. Next, turn right and zoom in in the bottom of the left-hand palm tree to see some wavy lines and the letters RBYG. This tells you the order of the symbols on the top of the box, so zoom in on the lid and click on the top left corner, then bottom right, top right and bottom left. Open the lid and pick up a fishing lure
    6. Go back to the maroon cabinet, open the bottom drawer and flick through the diary. This tells you that there are clues on the pages dated the 15th, 14th, on the palm trees, and on the page dated the 18th. Flick through to the end and pick up a knife, then go back through the diary to see the clues relate to rocks near a fishing place, earrings, palm trees and a pile of rocks. Turn left and zoom in on the rocks in the background to find a fishing place with 3 lines cut into it. You already know there are 2 earrings. Back up and zoom in on the middle palm tree to see an 8 carved into it, then turn right, zoom in on the pile of rocks in the foreground and see a 4 written on it. Then go back to the maroon cabinet, key 3284 into the top drawer, open and pick up a bobbin
    7. Add the bobbin to the long stick, then add the lure to make a fishing rod. Go to the fishing place on the rock and use the fishing rod to catch a fish, then use the knife to cut it open and pick up a gold key
    8. Go back to the treasure chest, use the gold key to open it and pick up a saw
    9. Turn right to face the large cave, then click on the right of the rocks and zoom in on a heart carved into the rocks. This tells you that diamond = 7. Next, enter the cave and click in the symbols on the right hand wall. By replacing the diamonds with 7s you can work out that circle = 3, square = 4 and triangle = 5. So you have the numbers 3457, but not necessarily in that order. Next, zoom in on the lock on the door at the back of the cave and key in (from top) 5347 (I don’t know why the numbers should be in this order). Open the door, pick up the rope on the third from top shelf and look at the note that was underneath it
    10. Before you go back to the heart on the cave wall, back out, turn left and zoom in on the coconut next to the driftwood you’ve already seen. Move the count and look at the note underneath. In both sequences the difference between successive numbers is reduced by one, which means the two missing numbers are 19 and 9. Now go back to the heart on the cave rock, use the trowel to dig up the sand pile next to it to uncover a small safe and key 199 into its lock. Open the safe and pick up a file
    11. Go back to the safe in the cave and use the file on the wire tied round the blue box in the second from top shelf. Open the box and pick up a shell key, then go back to the big green cabinet and use the key to open the blue sail box inside. Open the box and pick up a cloth
    12. Zoom in on the message on the cloth, then go back to the cave and zoom in on the calendar on the third from top shelf. The message tells you, in effect, to ignore the beach (or grains of sand) but not the rocks (or lumps) except on Thursdays. The calendar tells you that the lumps are red, so make a note of the red dates on the calendar except those that fall on a Thursday. These are the 4th, the 6th and the 14th. So key 4614 into the lock on the shell safe on the bottom shelf, open and pick up a silver key
    13. Use the key to unlock the door on the top shelf and pick up a longer stick (although it looks shorter)
    14. Use the file to remove the rust from the saw, then use the saw to cut down the three palm trees (click about halfway up each of them. I started with the right-hand tree). Then cut the trees into logs, use the rope to tie them up and add the longer stick to make a mast
    15. Take apart the fishing rod and add the cloth to the stick to make a sail, then add the sail to the raft. Go back to the lighthouse view, put the raft into the sea and click on it to escape and get a good ending

    tnx to removablehead from

      I have the long stick, the bobbin, and the lure. I am at the spot with the three scratches. I have tried clicking the pieces in order, double clicking each piece in order, and dragging the pieces together. How do you make the fishing pole? I actually have two sticks and have tried this with both. What am I missing?
