Return to Grisly Manor: Complete Walkthrough Guide

87. Take the tweezers.


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

88. Go back to the living room. Use the tweezers on the string of the ship in the bottle to open its sails and get a clue for your journal.



89. Go back to the garage. Use the clue from the ship to figure out the correct controls for the Crane Drop grabber machine. Look at the anchors as arrows, pointing down, left, up, right. Press the buttons on the machine in that order to get the laser beam power cell.





90. Go back through the fireplace to the basement. Go left to the laser beam and insert the power cell to turn it on.


91. Follow the laser to the dumbwaiter and up the stairs. The doorbell will ring. Go out to front of the manor to find your package. Use the utility knife to open the box and get your magic fish.






92. Go back to the train room. Pull the handle hanging from the ceiling to open the window to the dumb waiter. The laser will hit the train, stopping it. Take the magic fish food key from the train.



93. Examine the magic fish food and use the key to unlock it. If you then feed some food to the magic fish, it lights up a pattern of stars. You need to remember this for the magic hat. If you need to see it again. Just feed the fish more food.



94. Go to the magic hat and use the sequence the fish showed you to light up the stars. Then take the screwdriver from the rabbit.



95. Go back to the front porch. There’s a game of Concentration on the floor. It’s set to fast (hare) mode. Use the screwdriver to open it up and flip the switch to change it to slow (tortoise) mode. Place all the pieces in the right slots before the timer runs out and take the leather-bound book.



96. Open the leather-bound book and take the super glue. Also, notice the numbers 916081, which is apparently the manor’s house number.


97. Use the super glue to repair the broken trophy.


98. Go back to the train room. Pull the handle to get the laser working again. But this time, place the trophy by the dumbwaiter door. Pull the handle again and this time the left door will open, but the dumbwaiter door won’t close. So the laser can hit the energy collector. The laser will then hit the satellite and power Grandpa’s lab.





99. Go back to Grandpa and hop on the time machine back to 1999!

    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
