3. Leave the kitchen. Turn right and zoom in on the window. There’s a light switch to the right of it with this clue on it:

4. Close the curtains and examine them.










5. Turn right to see the TV. Examine the dog on the bookshelf and look at its back:










6. Zoom in on the sofa. Look at the back of the cat:









7. Pick up the cushion to the right and get a card.










8. Turn right. Zoom in on the green panel on the wall. Press the buttons in the order you saw on the light switch.

9. Open the panel and flip the switch inside.










10. Go back to the window and turn on the light.

11. Look at the letters that appeared on the curtain:

12. Zoom out. Look near the door at the fallen plant. Zoom in on it and use the chopsticks to straighten it up.

13. Zoom out and look at the floor. A key was under the fallen plant. Take it. Then take the chopsticks back.

14. Back in the kitchen, look between the fridge and the wall. Plug the cord into the outlet.

15. Look in the sink to see this:

16. If you tap on the dog to get it to buzz 5 times, it eventually tells you that the cat is lying. So we know the code on the back of the cat isn’t used for anything.

17. The clue on the curtain turned upside down reads 0735x. Add the 52 from the sink to that and you get 0735 x 52.

18. Do the math and then enter the answer into multicolored keypad (matches the colors of the clues) on the door near the laptop. Press enter and it will unlock.


19. Open the door and go upstairs.

20. Use the key to unlock the drawer beneath the toys. Take out the glue.

21. Examine the clue on the poster:


22. Open the door to the right and enter the bathroom.

23. There’s a screwdriver in the toilet water tank. Use the chopsticks to get it.

24. Leave the bathroom. Open the glass cabinet with he toys inside. Move the red robot aside and take the lighter from behind.

25. Go back downstairs. Face the laptop. There’s a candle under a tall lamp. Light it. Notice that it starts turning.

26. Zoom out and open the drawer under the candle. Take the mouse.

27. Attach the mouse to the computer.

28. Turn to the door next to the window. Fix the dial with the screwdriver.

29. Go back upstairs. Open the left door and go inside. Take the stepladder from the right side of the room.

30. Tap on the bottom bookshelf to open one of the books. There’s a photo inside. Examine it.

31. Zoom in on the brown closet to the left. There’s some black crayon scribbled on the door.


32. Use the screwdriver to get rid of the crayon and see this clue:


33. Go back downstairs. Examine the stepladder. It’s broken, so fix it with the glue (and then trust the glue to hold you up!).

34. Look above the door by the window. There’s a memo you can’t reach. Use the stepladder to get it.

35. Turn the memo over to see this message:


36. Go to the kitchen. Look at the top of the fridge. Remember the photo? There’s the item from it. Use the ladder to reach it. Take it. It’s a mold.

37. Go upstairs and enter the left room. Look behind the projector for a cord. Plug it in and turn on the projector.

38. Go back downstairs. Remember the two clues with music notes on them? Subtract the letters “YOU” from the word “EASYHOUSE”.

39. Put the remaining letters into the keypad on the guitar and press ENTER:


40. Take the lightbulb from inside the guitar.

41. Go upstairs. Above the toy cabinet is a lamp. Use the ladder to reach it and put the bulb in.

42. Go back down and turn on the switch by the staircase.

43. Go upstairs and now the light is shining on the floor. It reveals another clue:


44. Go into the left room and look at the word “SCRATCH” again. Note the pink letters.

45. Enter the pink letters into the keypad below the numbered cabinets and press ENTER:


46. Open door 16 and take the key. Note that number 12 is still locked.

47. Go to the bathroom and use the key to open the panel on the sink.

48. Go back downstairs and look behind the guitar to see this clue:


49. Turn to the big door near the window. Zoom in on the dial. Turn it according to the clue from the guitar, so tap the C side once, F side 3 times, C twice, and F 4 times. Tap the middle and it will unlock.

50. Open the door and enter the courtyard.

60. It’s too dark to read the book on the table. Tap on the keypad on the left side of the screen. Press 1 & 2 and the lights will all go on.




61. Read the book on the table:


62. Go back to the light switches and press the 3.


63. Now the floor lights are on. Look under the table and take the cartridge.

64. Go back upstairs and insert the cartridge into the projector. Some letters will appear on the numbered cubbies.


65. Press the cubbies in alphabetical order. Then tap the bottom and cubby #12 will open. Take the second half of the mold from inside.

66. Combine the two mold pieces to make a mold of a key.

67. Go back to the laptop. Enter the password:


68. Open the two files for more clues:



69. Look around the apartment at the different roman numerals: III (3), VII (7), VIII (8), IX (9).





70. Now, based on the clue from the computer, enter them into the keypad on the fridge:


71. Open the fridge and take out the beaker.

72. Go to the upstairs bathroom. Open the panel below the sink. Remember the clue from the laptop? Set the temp to 80 degrees.

73. Fill the sink with water. Then put the beaker in the water. It will turn into a clear liquid.

74. Pour the liquid into the key mold.

75. Put the mold in the freezer (the bottoms drawer of the fridge).

76. For some strange reason, you can now plug in the TV — the cord is to the right of it. Read the message:


76. The mold should be ready now. Take it out of the freezer. Take the key from the mold and use it to open the front door.

Congratulations! You made it out!

    Where did you get the code for the computer (1143) from? was it from the 2 bits of paper that together equal a maths equation, but there are too many variables to complete it, are the values for what square or circle etc equal found somewhere?

    1. AppUnwrapper

      Apparently it has to do with the internal angles of the different shapes. Welcome to work it out if you’d like, but I found it too ridiculous πŸ˜‰

    2. KC

      I figured it out. Combining the two notes you get:

      Circle (360β•¬Γ΄β”œβ•’β”¬β•β•¬Γ΄β”œβ•—β”œΒͺ) = Square (360β•¬Γ΄β”œβ•’β”¬β•β•¬Γ΄β”œβ•—β”œΒͺ)
      Square (360β•¬Γ΄β”œβ•’β”¬β•β•¬Γ΄β”œβ•—β”œΒͺ) – Triangle (180β•¬Γ΄β”œβ•’β”¬β•β•¬Γ΄β”œβ•—β”œΒͺ) = Semi-circle (180β•¬Γ΄β”œβ•’β”¬β•β•¬Γ΄β”œβ•—β”œΒͺ)
      Hexagon (720β•¬Γ΄β”œβ•’β”¬β•β•¬Γ΄β”œβ•—β”œΒͺ) + Square (360β•¬Γ΄β”œβ•’β”¬β•β•¬Γ΄β”œβ•—β”œΒͺ) + (7×9) = ?

      So 720 + 360 + 63 = 1143

  2. Rhi

    reply this one plz forge to press notify by email box

  3. AFW

    I have tried entering the code in the door with the multicoloured thing. I have tried on my own and tried using the walkthrough but nothing worked.

    1. Z

      Same with me.

    2. gigi

      i had this problem too but figured out that i needed to tap on the multicolored symbols that appear on the curtain.then it lets you enter the code.

      1. babysgramma

        I also figured out that I had to do a second closeup on the numbers in the sink and then tap on them also, as well as tapping on the symbols on the curtain, for the 38220 to be accepted in the colored-rim code field

  4. Chips

    I can’t get any further than putting the code into the guitar, keep getting error

    1. AppUnwrapper

      Make sure you’ve seen all the clues. When I have a chance, I’ll look through it again and see if there’s something that’s easy to miss.

    2. Jason

      Chips, make sure the first letter is not capitalized. The iphone/ipod capitalizes the first letter by default.

  5. Melinda

    I can’t get the dog to tell me about the cat. I have tried different ways to get it to tell me but still nothing πŸ™ so I can’t get the dor to open. So do you just keep tapping him?

      1. Melinda

        it keeps say “5” is written on it.. i have tried going back and forth 5 times, tapping him 5 times…still nothing. just wondering if anyone else is having this problem..

        1. AppUnwrapper

          Have you tried tapping his head to get the message that he vibrated? Need to get that message 5 times.

  6. cdglax

    Impossible to open the guitar. I still have an error ….

    1. AppUnwrapper

      Make sure you saw all the clues leading to it. Double check. The game is very linear like that.

  7. J.D. Jespersen

    Where do I click the candle to light it? I can’t get it to work to save my life!!!

    1. AppUnwrapper

      I’ll update the walkthrough tomorrow with more photos and better details.

    2. Joey

      I have the same problem…

    3. Eric

      I cant light the candle either. I have the lighter.

    4. Justin

      @jd jespersen, open the lighter in details view, double tap it to ignite it 1st, then apply it to the candle.

  8. J.D. Jespersen

    Finally figured that one out but now I’m stumped on the very end. What/where is the front door?

    1. kash

      oh come on ! you’re close, it is at the lower level, it is a picture where you only have a door

  9. Jenna

    How do i use the ladder to reach the memo ? i cant seem to use the ladder .. lol

    1. kash

      you have to put the ladder near the window, the memo is on top of the door with the F – C lock

  10. Jason

    I swear, NO ONE would have finished this app without a walkthrough…
    Who agrees?

    1. iktg

      agreed without it i would have gotten nowhere

  11. Jason

    Wait how do you pour the liquid into the mold?

  12. Jason

    Don’t worry I got it!

  13. John

    I cant combine both molds! how you do that?

    1. AppUnwrapper

      Double-tap on one to zoom in on it and then select the other on and use it on it.

  14. Sara

    Can’t get the memo ladder won’t go ?

  15. Dana

    I can’t turn the tv on πŸ™ please i need help πŸ˜€

      1. Dana

        Thaaaaanks ! πŸ™‚

  16. B lai

    How do u get the “1143 ” for the computer password?!

    1. AppUnwrapper

      It has to do with the internal angles of the shapes. It’s overly complicated.

    2. calvin

      superimpose the 2 cards with the shapes. you will get:

      circle = square
      square – triangle = semicircle
      hexagon + square = (7×9)=?

      Work it out, Square and circle are 360 deg
      Square (360) -triangle (180) = 180 (semi circle)
      Hexagon (720) + square (360) + (7×9) = 1143

      1. Sd


      2. dante

        How can i superimpose the the cards in prank house? Thats about square plus circle and the other things!!! If u can explain me with details, im stuck here, i open the book and touch the other card but nothing happen

  17. sunantha

    I can’t get the glass cabinet to open to move the red robot.. Pls help..

    1. kash

      Sunantha, tap on the left side of the glass

  18. Jake

    Can’t open the door to go upstairs it just keeps sayimg nothing happened and I have done everything before on the walkthrough in that order HELP ME πŸ™

  19. Sara

    Yup ladder fixed

    1. AppUnwrapper

      Tap the memo and it should tell you it’s too high to reach. Then use the ladder on it. If that still doesn’t work, try going upstairs and examining the memo from the railing.

  20. Sara

    Still not working I’m done with this

  21. Trishaxoltl

    Cant get pink CRH to work on the cabinet?

  22. kash

    1. kash

      did you plug it? I had the same issue

  29. Guest

    Guys, figured out the problem with key-kombinations like the riddle with the colored door: 735×52=38220

    if you enter the right number, it still sax “nothing happened”

    Thats because some ASCII problem with other languages. You need to change your keyboard settings to “English” and “QWERTY” and it’ll do its magic πŸ™‚

    1. kash

      hum it worked with my AZERTY setting…

  30. none of yo business

  47. dickie

  48. dickie

    So I got almost everything myself, come to the code for the fridge, and when I press the buttons, it just says
    “there is an input device.” I’m so close, what the hell?

  49. dickie

    I looked at all the roman numerals, in order, even. It still wont let me put the numbers in on the fridge.

  50. dickie

    Never mind, I figured out kash’s BARELY helpful “plug it” advice. Tap the gap on the right side of the fridge and the plug and outlet are there. Plug it IN.

    1. kash

      yea, that’s what I mean πŸ™‚

  58. kimmyboop

    seriously the hardest one I’ve ever seen. Usually when I get stuck its about half way thru and then i go on the walk thru for maybe one or two steps then I can figure it out from there….but holy moly I was on the walk thru the whole time. Would have never made it thru without it…..

    1. syafiq

  68. escspist

  69. justin

    The mold is only ready after you turn on the TV on the right bottom corner is the plugthen oncw its plugged in tap the TV screen and again with the message now go back to the refrigerator. For the guitar you must go upstairs and tap on the poster by the doors. Then tap on the message easyhouae. Make sure you have looked at the memo by taping it twice. Now you should be able to enter the code EASHSE. The front door is to the right of the scene with the TV tap therug. Take the key out of the mold and use the key on the door. For the dial FC make sure u read the clue on the back of the guitar first. Do exactly what it says ignore the lines on the dial. Tap the c side1 and f side 3 times then c side 2 times and f 4 times then press the middle. For the alpha cabinets. Tap them in order and tap #12 twice..

  70. justin

    To fix the ladder get the glue out of the glass case upstairs move the robot. Now click on the ladder in your inventory and then tapping the glue and tap the ladder . Its should say “I fixed thelader with the glue”

  71. justin

    Make sure that before you enter the password for the computer you.have read the book on the table outside. Make sure you tap the pages until text says ” I wonder what of means?” Now try the password on the computer.

  72. Sheree

    Where is the front door???????????????

    1. Steviejo

      on otherside of kitchen where two chairs r tap on the curtain πŸ™‚

  73. LC

    It’s too hard for me. I have to refer to the walk through all the time. The clues make sense when read it in the walkthrough guide. However, the logical sequence of how and when certain information reveal itself isn’t strong. For example, the code 3789got from the decorations around, the four digits can be in any combination and it could be used for either computer or fridge as they both require 4digits code. The other clue got from computer seems useless? “Arrange from small to large “

  74. Chris

    I still cant get the code to work in the computer and ive read the book outside wot do i do?

    1. MiERa

      You need to open the card while reading the book .

  75. MiERa

    Where are the roman numerals?

  76. trinity

    how can i decipher the dial? i can’t get out of the door beside the window. thank you.

  77. Steviejo

    How do.i get the mold from the abc cabnet. number 12 just wont unlock :/ need help plz

    1. Nikki

      You have to do the alphabetical letter thing twice. Once for cabinet 16 and one more time for cabinet 12. So it would be ABCDEFGHIJKL 16 then ABCDEFGHIJKL 12 (hit twice).

  78. Nikki

    Where or which is the front door all doors that I have open but I’m not finished
