The Mystery of Blackthorn Castle: Walkthrough

The Mystery of Blackthorn Castle
By: Syntaxity (Lone Wolf Games)

This is a complete step-by-step walkthrough guide with hints, tips, solutions and answers for the iOS and Android game Blackthorn Castle by Syntaxity. Feel free to ask for help in the comments section.

Walkthrough:

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5 | Part 6

1. Go straight ahead to the cottage in scene 4. Go to the garden out back and get the brass key from the urn.

You can also watch my video for the first half of the walkthrough here:

2. Go into the cottage and pick up the horseshoe from the floor. Then look under the bed and take the wooden ball. Use the brass key to unlock the box and get a piece of parchment with a clue on it.

3.  Leave the cottage and go back to the first screen. Head right and look inside the mine cart to get a piece of charcoal.

4. Go back to the cottage and continue ahead along the path. Tap on the signpost to the left to get a clue (you will automatically take a photo of it with your camera).

5. Now, take the middle path and then the right path to a locked gate. Continue down the right path to a windmill. Solve the puzzle on the trap door (I didn’t get a photo of the complete puzzle in time) and go downstairs to screen 24.

6. Pick up the shovel and place the wooden ball in the glass tube.

7. Go back upstairs and then open the door to the windmill. Go inside and up the stairs. Pick up a log from the fireplace and the blank piece of paper on the shelf.

  1. 8. Use the charcoal on the piece of paper to get a message about something buried at Richard Knight:’ grave.

9. Go back to screen 13 and take the right path to the church. Go inside the church and get a clue from the pews. Then go through the door and up the stairs. Take the piece of stained glass from the window sill.

10. Go back outside and to the graveyard next to the church. Use the shovel to dig in front of Richard Knight’s gravestone until a trap door appears. Go down the ladder and pick up the bellows and get the clue from the wall.

Continue to Part 2 of the walkthrough.

OMG! Great game! You’ll enjoy it!!

Podbud

Loving the game but I’m stuck.

Im asking the hint book, however it keeps saying:

“you have an item you can use at scene 57”

– I have placed two horseshoes in the recess of the stable area. I don’t have anymore horse shoes at the moment and have used all my items but they aren’t the correct item.

?

Nancy

Did you try using your garden trowel to dig in the hay?

renae

I think you have to dig something up in the hay in that room

Stephanie

Did you find the magnet? It’ll help you on that scene.

patti

Love the game stuck can not solve #34 keep saying I have the clue but the only one I have will not work

Nancy

I’m stuck too but at #64. Hint says to turn out the lights but can’t figure out how to do it. The only things that I have are flint and grappling hook

renae

im stuck there too!! Have you gotten past it yet?

Sue

Patti, try the urn. There is a key in it.

patti

Have already gotten and used the key but
thanks

jean

The magnet worked for me in the hay to find more horse shoes and the flint. My map doesnt show on the device I am using. Can anybody tell me which screen is 26? I am suposed to find an item there. Does anyone know where we can find a complete walkthrough?

Lee

For the puzzle on the cellar in scene 29 (the crest), I have it exactly how you have and nothing happens. Might I have a bug? Do I need to push something to make it work?

Clive

I too cannot complete the puzzle on scene 29 :0 ( I have the tiles same as your picture but with top of helm in centre. The walkthru has helped get round this but of course I end up with no pry bar. My clus book helpfully tells me there is a puzzle to solve at location 29 – Grrr suppose I’ll have to reinstall and play again. Thx for the walkthroughs which are most useful.

I cannot figure out how to turn the lights off in scene 56 (in the ice scenes?)
Othefwise it, is a great game and hope your game designers build some new, even harder games.

Joan D Linville

I cannot get from one scene tthrough to another except by backtracking through all intersecting scenes. Is there an easier way to go straight from one scene to a previous scene directly? Btw, I am playing this game on my Nook, rather than a regular computer. Thanks in advance for your help.
