Even with the built-in hints guide system, some people have been having trouble in a few spots of this new point-and-click adventure, The Lost City. Here you can find some answers. Feel free to link to this walkthrough to help people find it, but please don’t copy it anywhere.

**A lot of people are still having problems, so I wrote a step-by-step walkthrough. Scroll down below the hints to see it. For screenshots of the different puzzle solutions, look right below this message.***


1. The flower box. Look at the colored rings on the snake. Compare them to the leaves on the flowers. So, the flowers with one leaf are red, the flowers with two leaves are blue, and the flowers with three leaves are green. That’s all! 🙂

    I forgot to do the winter puzzle before I picked the red flower. How do I get the blue stone back so I can complete the winter puzzle?

      You can change the seasons as much as you want once you have the stone for that season in the statue. Just press the button on the right statue and the season will change.

      I am stuck at the very end in the same situation. Everything has been done, sun and moon are in correct positions according to clues, however bars to the last chamber with statue do not open. Any idea what I could possibly missed?

  3. Jean

    I’ve seen this question asked but can’t quite figure it out. When I try to complete the winter puzzle it tells me that the pieces can’t be moved. I can’t seem to get it to work and I can’t get past this point, help?

  4. Crissy

    I’m stuck at screen 8 with the floor puzzle. I have been to the screen with the clue and rubbed the charcoal on it and swept the floor in screen 8 to do the puzzle but I still can’t seem to get the right code for it… When I go back to look at the clue it is to hard to read… Can someone put up a screen shot for the floor puzzle please!

    Rostigen Schlüssel verwenden???

  8. Jenny

    Hi, I am curious, miniin general, how to know what season I should be in to accomplish all the tasks throughout the game. Is there a clue somewhere each time I need to solve a task?

    1. AppUnwrapper Post author

      Usually it’s logical. Like if something’s frozen, you need to get it to melt. Or vice versa. Winter is usually easy to figure out, but the other seasons are a bit trickier, so it takes a bit of trial and error.

      1. Jenny

        Thank You,
        After the season changed initially early on in the game, it never occurred to me that I would or even could go back to the Woman statue to change seasons to keep moving forward in the game play. What a little tricky idea the developer included. I hope I am not the only one who didn’t get it! Oh well, I progressed quite well before getting hopelessly STUCK and happened onto this site to get answers. Thank you for being here. I would have had to just give up!

    Eh this sounds bad but I’m at the very start and on screen 3 I do the wee thing with the pattern from the wall onto the door but it refuses to let me in. Please help me. I beg of you.

  10. Meg

    I have solved the lock puzzle on the box on screen 18. I never get the winter heart stone. I have picked up the machete and placed one tile piece. Am I doing something wrong?

  11. Meg

    Looking at some other questions…I too, have already picked the red flower. Was the a mistake?? Can’t get the winter stone…have solved that puzzle 10 times!!
