9:00 AM, Workshop:
31. Time to build tables! First, you need to pull out two sets of table legs. That means you need to find four that match and then another four that match. For me, I found eight that looked the same, but it might be randomized.
32. You need to place all four table legs on the table. To do so, drag one from your inventory and wait until the red circle turns green before you drop it. All four legs need to remain standing to clear the level.
33. You need to drag the wooden pieces to the trash. Then grab the four tubes of glue to your list, but only when the guard is behind the column. Otherwise he’ll stop you!
2:00 PM, Prison Yard:
34. Time to earn more raincoats. read the instructions here. You basically can roll as many times as you want and will get a cumulative score. But if you get a 7, you lose all your points. You need to get the highest score to win.
35. Here you have to select the shiv/knife and tap the numbers between your fingers quickly without stabbing yourself. Look at the numbers below the red bar/timer. I suggest memorizing them before tapping the arrow to start the stage. You need to tap those numbers in order before the red bar runs out. Then you’ll get another raincoat.
36. You need to collect the last eight raincoats. Here’s what to do. A word is written on the wall. It might say “pants” or “shirt.” Whichever one it says, you need to collect those in the laundry basket. If you collect the wrong items, the guard will get annoyed and make you start over. When you see a green raincoat, tap it to collect it. When you get eight, you can move on.
8:00 PM, Music Hour:
37. Tap on the toilet and then remove the piece of the wall and talk to the guy on the other side. He’ll tell you do waste some time. Tap on the table and play some Sudoku. Mine looked like this in the end, with a 1 in the last spot.
38. This is another annoying one. You have to bounce the ball off the floor to the wall and than catch it. You need to do this 14 times to beat Roy’s score.
You can also watch my walkthrough video for level 38 to the end of the game:
9:00 PM, Lights Out:
39. Put your fake head in the bed, then slide the grate off the hole and go through.
40. Tap the black arrow. Now it’s time to cut the raincoats up and build a raft. Cut each piece in half.

Any more progress on escape Alcatraz yet?
Am already bloody stuck and it’s only vey early days yet! It’s the library bit, have put books in alphabetical order and tried them on different shelves but nothing happens? . I love these escape games I’m just not very good at them!
I’ll work on it more tonight. Was working on a review for a different game.
Level 55 is very annoying
How to row boat, please help
Trying to figure out the pattern for the books. Surprised there’s no key or clue. Hmmmm….
On the part that you left off on page three how do I open the cell door
I’m still trying to figure that out for myself. Nothing I’ve tried has worked yet.
Okay just keep me posted I’ll do the same if I get it!
Will do! So far, I’ve come close to cracking my screen but that’s about all.
I got it. Really annoying. I’ll add it to my walkthrough.
Where can I see to get through cell door
How do I pick up the paint brush to paint the face
First pick up the paint.
I found it out. First when the guard isn’t looking throw the materials on the table on the floor, when he isn’t looking unplug the cord from the wall.
How do I get past the part outside when I have to put in a code to unlock a door. I know if I turn the screen some numbers turn orange but I can’t figure out the orders the numbers go in.. Please help(:
It goes darkest to lightest. I don’t know if it’s the same each game.
Hey, can you put up how to get past the level in the supply room? I’ve been stuck on it for days.
Hi I am stuck at the electricity box how do I open it
I found it. When the guard isn’t looking throw the supplies on the table on the floor. When he is picking it up unplug the detector from the wall
I have done that but it won’t let me cut the cord. How do I do it
I took 2 of my fingers and swiped the screen to the left really hard and the door opened for me now I’m in the laundry room lol
If I swipe a few times really fast, I get it open, but it closes right away.
Just keep swiping it fast as u can quite a few times
When u go down the pipe I can’t figure out how to stop sliding ? Anybody let me know if u figure it out
You have to “brace yourself” hold onto the right wall with one finger while opening the cell door with another finger .
i just slid the door to the left
I’m stuck on it too I even tried organizing it by the numbers on the side
It’s alphabetical order. But the books have to be on the top two shelves.
Please help it wont work ive tryed it like 100 times – library part btw
On the part where tou have to open the dior use two fingers
Put the books in order according to the alphabet. If there are two books that have the same letters in the same order, then go to the numbers and put them in numerical order.
It’s also different for each game!
Just updated. 🙂
I figured out the book shelf !!! Tap the book shelf, then arrange the books in alphabetical order: put A & B books on the top shelf, then C & D on the middle shelf.
Did you find out yet?
Not to me it wasn’t do you have to keep putting washing in and soap a certain amount of times before its revealed?
I put soap twice I believe. That overwhelmed the machine and I got the arrow to continue.
No that’s not working either it just keeps cleaning the clothes and stops when there done so I’m stuck?
You closed the machine after?
read the instructions on the machine. It tells you what not to do. That’s what you *want* to do.
It still just stops and washing is done even with door opened and have done that 3 times repeatedly what I’m doing wrong ? I can’t put my hand in machine either it just closes door
I think I’m almost done with my first playthrough and then I’ll continue my video walkthrough. Maybe that’ll help you.
I CAN’T unscrew the pipe from the toilet during music hour… I flash the toilet and the water goes away, but after that I can’t do anything anymore except for listening to the whistling. Help, pleasee
My granddaughter and I are both stuck at this point. Niether of us can unscrew the nut at the top of the pipe. I think it must be a glitch in the game
Ok you need to add both dirty laundry and detergent after it starts up.
Maybe or maybe not this is what you’re doing.
1. Take the original clothes out, put them in the basket.
2. Put a new set of clothes in the machine.
3. Put soap in. (Just once.)
4. Close it and start the machine.
5. Open it, while it’s running, and pour more soap in.
At least, that’s what worked for me.
Sometimes just soap worked, but other times I needed to add both more soap and more dirty laundry.
How do i get past the spotlights when i am escaping down the pipe?
I didn’t realize it when I did it, but apparently you can tilt your device to avoid them.
I need help with putting the books in order in the library on escape Alcatraz game. Can I Facebook you for help?
Put them in alphabetical order, with those starting with A or B on the top shelf, C & D on the second shelf.
I am having trouble putting them in order. Not good with stuff like this
I am having trouble putting the books in order . Can you please Facebook me or can I Facebook you
Need help putting the books in order on escape Alcatraz. Can you I please Facebook you?
Everybody’s books are different I think , mine were from the pictures on here so you will just have to put them in order yourself.
I will send a picture of the books to you on Facebook if you can help me
Ok I’m not very good on Facebook it’s not something I use very often what do you need from me or where do I find you?
Can I send it to appunwrapper on Facebook or do you have a different name?
Send it to appunwrapper and I’ll try and find it if I don’t succeed in next 15 minutes I’ll let you know via here
Sent it to u on Facebook
Have lost u now don’t really use Facebook it’s like a bloody minefield if u can find me on it i am dotty Lloyd from London
Sent u a message on your Facebook page
Have lost you now don’t really use Facebook it’s like a bloody minefield
Sorry can’t find u on Facebook
U want my email?
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.
i cant open the door
i cant open the door and it wont show me how to open it
How do you paint the fake head
How to loose the nut?
Swipe right a few times on it.
I’m having trouble with the music hour. Every time I flush the toilet, the water comes back so I can’t get the screw off
You need to shut the water before flushing it.
I’m having a lot of trouble getting the cell door to open. I’ve tried for a long time and I can’t get it.
You need to hold on to the wall
Yes!!! This worked for me for the third time opening the cell door!! Thanks!
My granddaughter and I are both stuck at this point. Niether of us can unscrew the nut at the top of the pipe. I think it must be a glitch in the game
how do you open the jammed door that the guard wont help you open??
Still working on that. 🙁 I manage to get it open all the way by swiping quickly, but it closes.
Hold one finger on the right side of the door, and open quickly with your other finger
Yeah, got it. Very dumb. Thanks!
How do you get past the laundry room where you have to collect shirts, pants, or undershirt.
Got it. Just Catch the shirt, Pants, or undershirt. Then click the jackets aS they come down.
Where’s the panel you have to swipe in the laundry room I have opened it while it’s going and added more soap but I can’t see panel to get to the wires
I think it was automatically shown to you after you broke the machine.
how do I paint the head?
Take out the paint and paint brush and mix some colors to make something that looks like skin.
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.
I rowed and rowed and emptied the water and rowed and rowed and still sunk. Does the shark affect anything?
How did you manage to row? No matter what I do, I always sink within 3-5 seconds!
I haven’t finished that level yet. Going to try again now.
how do I get past the steam on the sheets. Every time it burns no matter what I do.
You have to keep adjusting the handle so it stays on green. And move the green sheet fairly quickly. If you hold it in one spot for too long it’ll burn.
I am doing that but the dark strip goes away and then comes back and when it comes back it burns
Video is uploading. 🙂
Only 3 numbers have fingerprints on the key pad. What should I do
Has anyone had a problem with the green sheets on the steamer, I get to about 4or 5 and the whole game just reverts back to the main screen where you first log on to press play .
It just keeps doing it any ideas anyone as to what I can do, I’m playing on an iPad
I’ll make a video of the rest of the game once I finish my first playthrough.
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 directoon you’ll be fine. Be patient and row fast. After this just light the match on the stone and light everything on fire.
I dunno, I thought I was doing great several times now, but it takes so long and I eventually end up sinking after all that hard work.
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.
Ahh thanks I didn’t notice that!
How to I get past the part where I have to cut the green shape in half ?
I posted photos for that part that show you where to cut.
Didn’t see that before. Thank you !
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.
You might have to tilt to the opposite side he’s punching on.
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!?
After you successfully dodge him you can punch his face.
Anyone else stuck at the laundry drop, I can’t get 8
What’s going wrong for you?
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?
You need to swipe up each time you switch hands.
Still not moving. Ugh. I’ve fallen off this roof like a million times.
Finally got it. Put your device flat on it’s back, that was my problem. It wouldn’t move if I was holding it horizontally. Then use two fingers and swipe up on the pipe, not on the wall. Make sure one finger is always holding on to the pipe when switching fingers.
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.
It should automatically pop up after the previous one goes into the pile.
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
Add up the numbers next to each “savings”.
I can’t find the code
HELP!! I can’t row this dang boat!! The second the oar is in the boat moves to the right or left, and we sink. In like 2 seconds!! What am I doing wrong!!!
How do get code with the darkest to lightest maybe only has 3 blinking
How do you lose the nut it won’t go lose
Can someone give me more direction on how to win this fight? How do I dodge punches?
I am still stuck on this fight, too, Nikki!! I tilt away from his punches but apparently he is just faster than me. It keeps flashing red. On the rare chance I do “dodge” and he puts both hands down, I tap tap tap to punch him back… but I lose every time.
Tried to figure a pattern to his movements but seems different each time 🙁
Still confused about climbing down the pipe. No video or written walkthrough is explaining it clearly enough. I understand that you’re supposed to alternate fingers (aka “hands”) going downwards, but WHEN do you swipe up? When you swipe, are both fingers on the screen at that point? If so, which finger swipes up – the top or bottom finger or both? This is the only point in the game that’s had me stuck so far.
The bottom finger should swipe up so it ends up at the top of the screen and you have room to place your other finger below it.
How do I row the boat??? The boat just sinks however I row it…please let me know if there Is any specific pattern to row the boat To escape the island…
I can’t get past the falling laundry. As I’m catching whatever is assigned, if I try and get a raincoat too, it just flashes red and the guard comes.
You need to tap the raincoats, not catch them in the basket.
While wasting time, how do you get the hand to release the ball? Nothing I do seems to make the hand throw the ball
You basically swipe to drag the hand to catch the ball, then remove your finger from the screen to release it again. I’m going by memory, though.
Hey how do you find the code to the bag in the clerks office?
It’s different for each game, but just add up the numbers next to the three times you see “Savings”.
hoW do I get past The gate with the 80 moves?? I’ve tried and tried
Deactivating the circuits in 80 moves
Oh. Try looking at my video. It’s simpler to show than to explain.
STILL cannot win thisboxing match. So frustrated 🙁
When he throws with his left, I tilt right? Right? then try to punch his face?
Please help, hate not being able to move forward.
How do i pass this one mine the looked with the combo is 0 darkest 5 dark 1lightest thats it
How do you get passed opening each cell when your restocking
Hello how do you do it
Is there a strategy to the accordion ball thing? I can’t get them all in the holes at the same time. Are they supposed to disappear in the holes? Or what?
It’s just like any other annoying game of labyrinth, only with more balls. :/ You need to tilt your device really carefully so those that are already in the holes don’t fall out again.
made it!! finally! i can sleep!
for the stage where you go through the librarians desk the numbers 22157 didn’t work for me with the lock box… Where did you find those numbers?
How do you turn the fabric pieces in the tangram scene? I can move them, but trying to get one of the triangles to rotate like in the video and won’t work. Tried tapping, two fingers…help appreciated. Thanks
You need to tap them, but it doesn’t always work right away.
Has anyone tried rotating the fabric after iOS 9 upgrade? I have tapped hundreds of different ways and still doesn’t rotate. Going to menu and back dozens of time finally served up the pattern needed for first shape. Now can’t get them rotate on next…
screen rotation and some other responsiveness functions were messed up after iOS 9 update. I had to reset settings on my device to fix that. then I was finally able to win the fight and move forward.
How did you reset it?
Hey, your site is awesome! I’m stuck on how to rotate the fabric triangles to make the pieces of raft. Any hints? I feel like I’ve tried everything.
You need to tap on them.
Hey I’m having trouble on the cell door its stuck and I can’t figure how to get it open!! HELP!!!!!
The third one?
It’s when u buy the 99 cents to complete the escape the first one after that u have to open the cell door it. Sure but idk
I can’t open the cell door. How do u open it?? Please help…
The one after I I the spoon one
Put one finger on the right wall and use two fingers to slide the door to the left.
Yes thank you
Which way am I supposed to tilt my phone to avoid the spotlight on the drain pipe? I’ve tried going really fast like in your video, but he light always seems to catch me. (I’ve turned the phone to the left and right, but it doesn’t seem to help). Any additional specific information would be appreciated! Thanks.
Karyn, did you figure it out? I am stuck there, as well. Spotlight kills me every time. And more difficult as I am playing on an iPad. So two handed climbing and tilting is a challenge.
Ok I actually tilted my device back (neither left or right) and made it down!
im having trouble with throwing the rocks and breaking the window..
That’s just the controls. They suck. 🙁
This raft thing is crazy! Rowing correctly, no water in the raft but Frank suddenly says we’re sinking?! Sometimes just at the start… Cannot figure out what I am doing to sink us 🙁
How do you cut the raincoats? I can’t seem to figure it out no matter what!!
Look at page 4 of this awesome walk through!! There are photos showing the halfway mark to cut each piece.
How do you avoided the spot lights on the roof???? I don’t understand I get so close then they go right on top of me
tilt your device away from the spotlight

How do you get all the balls into the accordian in escape Alcatraz?

Help! I’m at the stage where you unscrew the acordian and have to get the balls in the holes. I don’t know why but two of the balls are outside the acordian and not inside the grid thing. I tried restarting the level but it didn’t make a difference
Unable to pass rowing the boat. I row correctly, but the issue is that when i switch to the bucket to empty the water, it does not work. I continually tap the water when the bucket is highlighted, but it does not work. Has anyone else experienced this issue? If so, did you find a way around it?
