    I’m stuck with what else to use to open the chest. Ive used the knife,but need something else to completely open it. Now I also have the clay inside the cat mold and don’t know what to do and the snake is lit up. ?????

  2. Empty

    I read in got mail forum to move knife up,right,right,left and down. Useless,cause if u try it bounties knife back to your inventory. Anyone,help…

    1. Charlie

      Seriously stuck in same place. Also have key with hole, clay in mold, knife in box. Can you give me a hint please? I have no idea where to go next. Thank you

    2. Rich

      Persevere with the knife and directions required. You just have to tap in the right places!
      Managed to make the key fit into the statues wrist, which is now ‘shaky’, but can’t get past a BAD END. 🙁

  3. anne

    Im in the end of the game,with puzlle. Let me know if you still need help, ok?

    1. Empty

      Hi Anne,
      I don’t know how.But, I got out. This was one of the strangest ones yet. I still had things in my inventory. Now I’m struggling with ‘Love is not tied’ with the wall puzzle. Bye.

      1. calie

        How do you get the good ending?

  4. anne

    I escape with bad end! I keep trayng. Ok, good luck

  5. Jakub

    Hi. Where I get clay for mold?

    1. Meredith

      Jakub,
      Did you get into the second room? The clay is inside of a black ball/marble thing that you find on the floor.

  6. Meredith

    What does the clue in the snake’s mouth mean? I thought it was for the rope puzzle (combined with the note about snakes saying opposite things) but I just can’t decipher it.

  7. Maria

    Hopelessly stuck…please help! Ihave the straightened paper clip, the knife, a bowl with water, a locked diary, a locked wooden box. Found the 3 weird symbol notes on wall and statue, the monsterlike thing, the snake, can’t lift/cut the cloth, found the water puddle note, the one on the rock, the spot of sunlight, keyhole on arm of statue, the ropes, the partly covered pattern under the coffin…but can’t do anything with those things…nor can I find any more hints. Please, what’s next?

    1. Sheryl

      Hi Maria,
      click the paper clip once again to bend it. I’m also stuck like you, but how did you find the diary?

  8. Maria

    Forgot: i have also seen the axe and the crystal I can’t take…

  9. Pineapple

    How do you get to the second room?

  10. eu

    Maria, tap on the straighten paper clip again, it will become curved, likes a key. Then use it open diary, read diary and used it for read the symbol. Then you will know how to do in following steps

  11. eu

    insert knife into chest box to knife move “up,right,right,left and down” is correct, but you need to use knife to break the lining of suitcase to read the clue first

  12. Ririkins

    Where do I get the clay and the key from?

  13. Maria

    Eu, thanks for help! Now I’m struggling with the bad end. Suppose the snake indicates the order in which to break the glass and the cloth which tiles… but I keep falling…

  14. jen

    Please help with rope puzzle?!! Where is the other room?

  15. eu

    Snake has indicated the order but it should be opposite…… hint : horizontal mirror 🙂

  16. eu

    Rope puzzle is related to the symbol at coffin, stone, mold and water

  17. eu

    Symbol at coffin = rope position, symbol at stone, mold and water indicates the order

  18. Sally

    Ok, the symbols in the puddle don’t match with the ones under the tomb, this bit is driving me mad, is the order something to do with day and night? W

  19. Ririkins

    Has anyone played A Love Gone Too Far? I’m totally stuck! I can’t find the red stick or figure out the code for the weird box with the sun and stars on it. I found the note which I suppose is a clue for the code, but I can’t figure it out. HELP PLEASE

  20. Ririkins

    Plus I can’t find the handles to the door inside the closet. If anyone can help, I would really appreciate it.

  28. paul

    What does this drawing on the cloth mean? ! I’m assuming it’s a clue for which glass to break but I have no clue what it how! can anyone help? !

  29. danita

    How can I use the mold and the clay? Where I can put it? I’m in 2nd room and I don’t know what to do.

  30. Camz

    For the rope puzzle, look for the clue on the mold, puddle and on the rock near the skeleton with suitcase..Then pull the second rope from the right, third rope from the right and third rope from the left..A curtain should fall after that.. 🙂

  31. Murph

    I have found the snake with the crystal. I see the arrow used a mirror to find the order…but is that the order of each pane of glass…or the order of panes ? do you get what i mean?

    1. Linna

      Did ne1 figure out the proper order for breaking the glass yet? I tried every combo I can think of and no good ending yet. Please help.

  32. hans

      1. kathy

        You have to read the text in the upper right corner picture with the notebook before smashing the correct corners to get the good end

  36. Sebie

    Sry first commend was wrong

  37. Lianne

    To get a god end you first have to “wiggle” the male statu and then you follow the instructions of sebie

    I know my englisch is not perfect but i hope you understand

  38. Linna

    Thanks alot Sebie and Lianne you two are awesome. 😀

  39. tannis

    What do you use to break the glass? What do I do with the tooth?

  40. Sebie

    Use tooth on key. Use key on male statue. Then use axe to break the glass.

  41. denise

    How do you open briefcase I tried all the dates I can think off with the riddle on paper but completely stuck help pls

    1. tiffany

      Dip the note you found under the rifle into the puddle of water and a different message will be revealed. Just solve the word problem and you get 1904

  42. christina

    Plz help me. This game is driving me nuts!!!! I can’t get into the second room or take the axe cause I can’t find the keys. I just took the mold. Heeeeelp!!!!

  43. Heather

    I can’t get the glass to break with the axe, I tried all the recommendations too. Help.

    1. Dariya

      Just tap on glass with axe. It doesn’t break it always. Just keep trying. Guys, I did all recommends that you are writing but I have only a bad end. Please, help! Sorry for my English)

  44. zen

    First to move again the dog crystal needs to move statues fingers.

  45. Rui

    How can i shake the statue. I already put the teeth in the key, and put it in the keyhole. HEEELLLLPPP!!!!!

    1. Linna

      Just tap the male statue till it says “The statue seems shakey.”

  46. Stephani

    Can anyone please tell me where to find the mirror? I was told it was next to a pillar & I have tried every one & can not seem to find it anywhere! Please help!

    1. Linna

      If I recall correctly it is in the hole in the wall beside the pillar but you don’t collect it. I think you redirect the sunlight to the snake and it reflects to the mirror. I think, I might be remembering wrong tho.

      1. Linna

        Sorry not snake… dog. My bad.
