Day 185, 7:30 AM

1. Slide the cell door to the left and leave the cell.


You can also see my video walkthrough for the first part of the game (levels 1 – 17) here:

2. Take the note from the other prisoner’s hand. It’s a list of items you need for an escape plan.



8:00 AM, Breakfast:

3. First use the spoon to eat all the food on your plate. Then wait for the guard to walk off the left side of the screen so you can take the spoon.


9 AM, Restocking Duty:

4. Look at the check list and then match the cells to it. So you want 1 to unlocked (yellow), 2 to be open (green), then 3 & 4 to be closed/locked (red).



5. This level is annoying because it uses tilt controls and for some stupid reason the guy is carrying toilet paper rolls on their side so they can roll around. Once you get the first load through, you’ll be given another.



6. Pay attention here to the letter and number on each prisoner’s shirt. If it’s a vowel (A E I O U), give him a sheet. If it’s a consonant (B C D etc), give him a pillowcase (Pcase). If he has an even number, give him toilet paper and if he has an odd number, give him soap. It will get faster as you progress. When you fill up the red bar, you can then take a roll of toilet paper and some soap for your list.


1:00 PM, Library Detail:

7. You’re now in the library and have to sort the books. Each game will have different books. But this is how to solve it. Ignore the numbers unless you have any books with the same exact letters. Just put them all in alphabetical order and place the ones that start with A & B on the top shelf. Then put C & D on the second shelf. Make sure the cart is empty. You can see how I sorted the books I was given:


8. First, tap on the desk. Then tap on the bird sculpture to see the words “Eastern Towhee.” Tap on the calendar until you see the Eastern Townhee page. It says “BSDA: 8467, p. 57”. Tap the book on the desk and take the key. Use the key to unlock the bottom drawer and get a note that says “221 page”. Open the long single drawer and enter “22157” into the locked box to get the keys.






9. Just swipe left to right to select a different key. Then tap the keyhole to try the keys until one of them works. Then tap the doorknob to open the door.


10. Notice the dotted line. You can only remove objects from below that line. But you need to do so without causing all the objects to topple over. Start with the small objects in the middle. Then work on the left side, back to the middle, and then the left again until you can grab the paint and paint brushes. Don’t touch the right side at all!

It’s not a clue just a task that gets you to the next clue. Start with A and AA and go on from there in alphabetical order then if you come across letters that are the same then go to numerical order. That should work.

Pull the raft back when the light from the guard comes towards it


Then when in raft keep the light on the far shore centered and bail out the water in raft when needed. The when you get to the other shore get the match box and strick match and set oar and raft on fire. Thanks for the help and good luck.


How did you manage to row? No matter what I do, I always sink within 3-5 seconds!


how do I get past the steam on the sheets. Every time it burns no matter what I do.

U have to turn the dial don’t let it go past 1 and keep moving the sheet up and down till the stain disappears hope this helps


Just use the paddle on each side of the raft quickly and if you are turning away from the light paddle a few more times on the side opposite to where you want to go. Make sure you take water out constantly. That will make your raft point away just paddle the same way to keep pointing to light. It’s not complicated. Sharks do nothing but take more water into your raft and slightly make it point to a diff direction but as long as you regularly take water out and don’t use the paddle 3 times on the wrong… Read more »


How do you pass 22 and i cant pass it


Awesome game. The only thing I had real trouble with was the stupid jail cell doors. Thanks for making this post, I almost gave up on the game because of those. Also, on the way down the drain pipe, you can tilt away from the light to hide from it, might be helpful to add.


How to I get past the part where I have to cut the green shape in half ?


How do I “close the circuit” after opening the panel on the washer?


Never mind, got it


I cannot beat that guy trying to beat me up! I am tilting and tapping his face but I keep losing. Is there a directional trick? Been at this two days and frustrated.


With the guy that wants to fight me, I am able to dodge his punches but I keep on talking his face all the time and it doesn’t do anything!?


Anyone else stuck at the laundry drop, I can’t get 8


Got me for like 10 mins… Get the laundry it says for example if it says pants collect them in the basket, and when a rain coat drops touch it and it will count till you have 8. Don’t put those in the basket though, just tap the raincoats!!


I’m trying to climb down the drain pipe but nothing happened. Using two fingers like hands, I’ve tapped, slid, and almost cracked my screen trying to get it to move. What am I doing wrong here?


I get the strip on the green sheet to disappear but it won’t give me a new sheet to work on. Then the first sheet burns.


I figured it out. My screen wasn’t bright enough so when I thought it was disappearing it really wasn’t!


I have the same problem


How do you open the bag in the clerks office
