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! 🙂

      There’s actually four missing pieces 🙁 I can’t remember where I found the first two, and I still haven’t found the fifth piece. The third I got when I used the Iron Lion and the fourth when I used the broom and did the puzzle on the floor, inside the well.

      how do u solve the flower box puzzle with the golden snake clue.

      I dug up the box, it’s summer season, I have the golden snake clue.

      I don’t know how to solve it to make it work. 1 red flower? 3 green, 2 blue??
      Screen shot so I can see it?


  1. Laura

    I am to the part where it says to use the rusty key to open the floating box on page 22. There is no floating box. It just says you hear water down the hole. I don’t know what to do?? Help please!!

      1. sam

        Hiii, I have plugged up the water spout but still can not see a floating box?? I noticed it says change season to spring before using the rusky key on the box. How do I change season to spring in order to see the box? Thanks

          1. Brenda

            I have plugged up the spout while in Summer, but I change back to spring and go toward screen 22 the water is running again and I cannot find the floating box on screen 22!?!?!

      1. lynne ramage

        Autumn puzzle does not let you move the pieces. Anyone you touch it says this tile cannot be moved. please help.

        1. Lin42

          I finished Lost City. Such a great game. I had already done Grisly Manor and had wiped it from my IPad. Wanting to show a friend I tried to play again but I can’t download it again. Why? Is there a way I can get it back again?

    1. Rifat

      its also not letting me complete autumn puzzle, cant figure out what the problem is, i do have the autumn flower, but still

  2. Nick

    I have thought to have finished the puzzle because I got a picture of two birds looking opposite directions and everything seems finshed but nothing happens.

  3. Nick

    Still not working. I dont understand. I have placed the feet parts in everyway possible and still nothing. I might have to restart.

  4. jenn

    I can’t find the floating box and i did plug the fountain. I also can’t get the last flower I have a blue and orange one and another i think pink but don’t remember where I got it.

      The floating box is one screen up from the plugged hole. You need to change the season back to spring to get it.

      And I posted the flower locations. Let me know if you still have trouble finding them.

        1. AppUnwrapper Post author

          You have both sets of clues in the journal?
          Not sure what to say other than check again that it’s the same. If it still doesn’t work, it might be a bug 🙁

  5. Lindano

    I need some help, I have to open the box in screen 26 but i don’t know the combination! The spoiler tells that I have to use the combination of the gold snake but it doesn’t function!

  6. Kitsune

    I can’t find the broken tile which goes in the lower left corner of the thing… Can anyone tell me which screen it’s in?

  7. Troyzie

    I am up to the part where you burn the flowers but I don’t have the red spring flower. It says it’s on screen 39 but when I go there i can’t find it all that’s there is the summer statue. I have changed the season to spring and everything. Please help
