Return to Grisly Manor: Complete Walkthrough Guide

73. Go back inside the manor. The robot will be near the entrance. Tap on him and he’ll run away again.


You can watch my video for this part of the walkthrough here:

74. The lasers blocking entry to the library aren’t working because of the power outage. Go in to find the robot again. Place the dust bunnies by the stained glass window and then tap the robot. He’ll go to pick up the dust bunnies. Flick his power switch off and take the feather duster.



75. Go back through the laundry room to the basement. Use the feather duster on the shelf with cobwebs and take the film reel.



76. Go back to the master bedroom and take the pull string from the ceiling fan. There are also some fingerprints in the closet but ignore that for now.


77. Go back to the tree house. You can see the construction work has progressed and we’re running out of time! Fix the torn generator string with the pull string you just found. Then, pour some gasoline into the generator and pull the string turn it on. The Christmas lights around the tree house turn on!


78. Enter the treehouse. Place the film reel on the projector and watch the video of grandpa in his study. It looks like there’s a stairway that isn’t visible in the actual study. Also, now that the power’s on, you can solve the sliding tiles puzzle (slide the glass tiles over the three lights) and get the moose antler.





79. Go to the study. Examine the wallpaper and then use the utility knife to cut out a doorway. Head downstairs and it will lead to the kitchen. The furniture will move to the side, shaking open one of the cabinets. Take the toothpicks from inside. Then take the toothpick from the box of toothpicks.




80. Go back to the garden and use the toothpick on the fly trap plant to get the glow-in-the-dark tile.


81. Go back to the master bedroom. Follow the glowing handprints into the closet to find a tile puzzle. Place the tile in the center, then solve the puzzle. Take the cue ball and extension cord.




82. Go back to the car. Use the extension cord in the dashboard of the car and press the button to use the battery to get the garage light on.



83. Enter the garage. Go to the painting station and place the cue ball down. You need to match the paint job to the photo you took of the ball with the star on it. To do so, first press the STAR button. Then, spray red paint on the ball. Press the STAR button again to remove the star. Press the top left button to cover the bottom half of the ball. Spray blue paint on the ball. Then, press the STAR button again. Last, spray yellow paint on the ball. Remove the star and cylinder covering the bottom of the ball and take the cue ball back. It should look like the one from the photo.










You can also watch this video I made of this puzzle:

84. Go back upstairs to the seals and ball toy. Place the ball in the basket and then take the fuse.


85. Go back to the room with the door that used to have lasers. Place the moose antler on the moose head to unlock the fuse box. Replace the busted fuse with the new one and the power will come back on in the manor.


86. Go back to Grandpa. He’s in the back room with the time machine. He tells you it needs more power and wants you to figure out how to get the laser from the basement to his lab.

    I can’t make the tape recorder work in Return to Grisly Manor. I’ve pressed it next to the singing bird, but it doesn’t replay next to the broken bird. I’ve uninstalled the game twice, but the same thing keeps happening. Any ideas?

    1. Linda S

      Was the bird singing when you used the tape recorder next to it? If not, then you missed something?
      Sorry, I had no problem with this – I clicked the bird and it started singing, then I just ‘used’ the tape recorder. Clicked the used recorder on the broken bird and the box opened.
      I hope you get it. Big game, larger than I expected.

    Hey. I’m completely and utterly stuck on the scale-problem when you’re back in the 1999 version of the mansion. Anyone’s got a clue how to solve it?

    1. AppUnwrapper

      I don’t think I’ve seen that yet. I’ll try to catch up.

    2. Silje

      Same here, Jenny! Been stuck for days! So annoying, I really can’t see the pattern…? Did you get the clue from behind the painting? Does it relate to the scales?

      1. Jenny

        Silje, yeah I got that clue but I really can’t figure it out. I’m thinking it has to do with the scales but I just can’t see it. Haha, it’s driving me crazy!

        1. Silje

          Hahah, me too! But can you use a clue? I can’t, because of a bug with the bird/tape recorder as mentioned over here, so I can’t get any new clues. Please update me if you figure it out haha 🙂

          1. AppUnwrapper

            I saw the scales now but still need the missing weight. I’ll try to catch up.

  3. Casey

    I can’t get any more clues through the game either. It is stuck on the tape recorder and bird clue and I can’t figure out the scale puzzle either. I’m super annoyed. Wish they would fix the bug so I can get another clue.

    1. AppUnwrapper

      I just caught up so let me try and solve the scales puzzle.

  4. Jenny

    Thanks Appunwrapper, now I’ve finished the game 🙂 best of luck to everyone else. i saw an update this morning so hopefully it will solve the issues with the bird/ tape recorder 🙂

  5. Linda S

    Saved the Manor and Grampa is heading for another adventure – I hope!

    Great game! Longer than the first one I think.

  6. Amy

    I cannot figure out how to change the difficulty level from the hare to the tortoise!

    1. AppUnwrapper

      You can only do so once you find a tool to open it up. Are you at that point yet?

      1. Amy

        Oh ok, no I’m not, thank you. I thought it was an option at the beginning of the game I couldn’t figure out. I’m an idiot.

  7. Cindy crabb
