Broken Age Act 2: Complete Walkthrough for Shay and Vella

Shay and Vella (final puzzles):

1. Switch back to Shay. Use the clue from the family photo that Vella saw in the central control room to figure out how to rewire the broken Hexipal robot. The symbols for the Hexipal wires are different each game, so I can only guide you through this part. You’ll have to get the final solution on your own. I’ve written a separate guide for this, but I’ll go through it again.


You can also watch my video for the last puzzles of the game and the ending:

2. Make sure you combined the wire with the broken Hexipal. Then tap on the Hexipal to see its back. To rewire it, you tap one of the pegs (connections) in the corners of the hexagon and drag your finger to another peg. The direction does matter. Just so you can see what symbol each peg represents, connect the wires like so.


3. Now, go to the diamond charging station to the left and place the Hexipal in it. Now you can see what each connection gives you. The top row is the blue wire, the second row is the yellow wire, and the bottom row is the red wire. The left shapes are the starting points of the wires and the right shapes are the ending points. Mine looks like this, but yours is likely different. I suggest taking a screenshot or writing it down, or both.


4. So according to my symbols, my wiring should go like so:


5. Place the Hexipal back into the wiring station and he’ll charge up! If you get three blue bars and a smiling Hexipal, it means it worked. Now hand him over to Alex and let him do his magic. He’s the electronics genius you needed!




6. Vella’s family will run in now. There’s a big cutscene where both ships get moving and end up colliding. Tap on the two ships and you’ll be back with Vella. Talk to Mom (Hope) and find out why she can’t move the ship. Both ships are on autopilot and the NavScarf bot refuses to change course even the slightest bit. So it’s up to Vella and Shay to save the day!


7. First, leave the control room and head right a bit. The safety Hexigal bot is broken on the floor. Pick her up.


8. Marek is gone, so go to his work station. Grab the loose wire from his computer. You can now talk to the Thrushmaster if you tap on the big screen. Exhaust all options to learn about his plans. This gives you a big chunk of the story, so I recommend reading through everything.




9. Combine the wire Vella just found with her Hexipal (Hexi-gal). You can try and rewire her through trial and error right now, or make a mistake in the final puzzle so you are given the safety bot program automatically. If you want to do it right now, the burn marks help you out. They show you where the wires go and which direction the go in (the dark burn marks show the starting points of the wires). So all you need to figure out is which color goes where. It’s a lot simpler than Shay’s Hexipal was! You can see what mine looks like below. When you get it right, the Hexigal will start swinging her arms again. Make a note of the configuration you ended up with, because you will need it for Shay’s Hexipal soon.




10. Now take Vella over to the “belly of the beast,” as she dubbed it. You can see Alex’s spaceship through the window. Have Vella press the death ray remote button. Alex will go downstairs to shut the power, leaving the door open so Shay can now go through.

Stuck on repairing Hexipal wiring

Im using PS4

When I got the hexigal all the way through to the door, she got sucked up through the big hole seperating the kitchen with the control room, did i do something wrong? Do I need to restart or…?


Go into the kitchen, get the thing in the top center to say ‘taco pill Tuesday’ while in the sun thing, and then use the grabby arm.


i am also stuck on the hexipal wiring the part with the drums.
i tried your walktrough but i think mine is different.
can you please help me


Thank you for this walkthrough! I think I’ve made a mistake, and I’m not sure how to go back. I’m trying to rewire the hexipal to beat the drum, but I didn’t write down Vella’s burnt hexigal pattern. Is there any way to go back to see it?


Yes i have but my friend helped me with it. Can you give me some hints?


I’m stuck on wiring the first hexipal can somebody help me?


Ok first:thanks for the wireing guide i got stuck fvor a long time at that part.Never tought that infos from vellas story are used for Shays or the other way around.
Second:How did Shey knew how to connect the wires if the family photo was on Vellas side of story and how did Vella knew about the wire pattern in the book on Alexs ship?
I guess the only “plausible” explenation is that they comunicate through telepathy,but only twins are supposed to posess such abilityes…….but……that means……OMG PLOT TWIST VELLA AND SHAY ARE TWINS XD.


I’m placing the hexipal by the harp but he won’t play it he just stands there for a few seconds then Shay pick him back up. Please help what did I do wrong


I’m at the end now but Alex disabled the death ray so I can’t use it. How can I enable it?

Matty C:

Can you please help me ASAP?
In (pretty much) the end, I’m supposed to use the drumstick and turn on the power, right? But I didn’t know that until I read this, so now it’s stuck to my hexipal! Is it possible to take it away/reset that thing? It would be really depressing if I have to reset the whole game and start over…


What did u do ? I have the exact problem !


I need help it won’t let me do the very last thing Vella just keeps saying “didn’t work that time. Alex did u disable my death ray?”


ok I’m sure I’ll prob get stuck wiring the hexipal but right now my problem is that I can’t even attempt to wire according to the triangle patterns! Shay just keeps saying this is all the wire I have this is all that carol gave me. I need to unhook so,e connections first. But when I tap on the connectors it won’t unhook and I have nothing in my inventory to unhook the wires. What do I do?


I’m at the ending, but the ray will only go on for a few seconds.


I need help with the part where u use the hook to play with the wires my thing is boarded up


Do I have to start over


Did you figure this out? I have the same problem! I did something in the wrong order and I’m boarded up.


I just wanted to say thank you so much! This walk through saved me so many times and multiple nervous break downs!


This is game made me want to throw up.


i’ve done everything with Shay but now i,m playing as vella and i can’t find the Hexipal (or whatever it’s called) with the burnmarks. please help me


It is in the hallway. In between the control room and the kitchen


Dear writer, Thank you so much for this all. It helped me a lot. I have one final question though. I am stuck on Vella pushing the button. I did everything exactly how you said. I distracted Hope and Alex (Hope was in the room with the weaver and Alex was downstairs). Shay used Gary and after that I switched back to Vella and tried to push the button. She says: ”Huh, didn’t work that time, but it should have. Alex did you disable my death ray?”. I switched to manual etc. I actually did everything what this and other… Read more »


I’m stuck when hope blocks the nav scarf system because marikai is watching it. I walk into the command room and while marikai is watching the system. I can not leave the room and I can’t do anything in the room, I have waited it for a while and nothing has happened. I have watched many videos but none have turned out the way mine has. I relize you may not see this but if there is any way you could help me that would be great.


Welll… i changed the hexipals wire to the safety one and i gave him the hammer, still when i place him by the drum it just starts to dance instead. I really dunno what to do o.o


nvm i did it wrong c:


Thank you 🙂 !


Thank you very much, this was super useful and very well explained 😀 !


Won’t let me shoot laser


Cat shoot laser


So I think I used the death ray before I had to so now I can’t use it anymore. Is there any way to fix it?

Arturs Kass

I am stuck in the completely last step. I have tried it a couple times by my own but something was always wrong, now everything was in place but Alex had been disabled my death ray, so it doesn’t work. What now?
