Walkthrough:

Level 1 | Level 2 | Level 3 | Level 4 | Level 5 | Level 6 | Level 7 | Level 8 | Level 9 | Level 10 | Level 11 | Level 12 | Level 13 | Level 14 | Level 15 | Level 16 | Level 17 | Level 18 | Level 19 | Level 20 | Level 0 + Coordinates

If you already completed the main game and want to discuss Level 0 and the coordinates, please go here.

Level 1:

You can watch my video for level 1 including all three letters or see my step-by-step guide below:

1. Swipe down to open the door. Go through.

2. Pull the two gold sliders out and continue through.

3. Turn right and pick up a letter. Turn left and break the jars to find another letter.

final-124

4. Look at the symbol on the wall and then go to the table and press in the pegs to copy the symbol.

final-50

final-51

5. Go through the door and up the ladder. Pick up the tile.

final-125

6. Go back down and copy the design on the tile onto the table with buttons. A secret panel will open, revealing the third letter! Take it. Notice there are some coordinates on the bottom of it. We’ll look at those again later.

    Where is the end of 8?!

    1. AppUnwrapper

      Still working on the walkthrough. Please bear with me!

      1. Jason k

        Ok thanks

      2. Susan Margelis

        Did you finish Level 9 yet?

        1. AppUnwrapper

          Not yet. Will work on it more tomorrow. Was working on other walkthroughs and reviews.

        2. AppUnwrapper

          I finished it. Just need to work on the walkthrough for it.

  2. Giulia

    Hi. Where do I find the 3 letter in level 14?

  3. Matt W

    If you need help with the explanation of the triangl puzzles in level 15 (especially the last one), let me know.

  4. Matt W

    For level 15 point 12, there is an easier solution:

    -1 = -4 +5 -2

  5. John

    WHen using a hint in level 0 Some of the jars dissapear

    1. AppUnwrapper

      How did you use a hint there? I don’t see the option.

    2. AppUnwrapper

      I was able to get the hints working on my iPad, but for some reason there’s no option on my iPhone.

      It just shows me cracks in all the jars. Could it mean that you need to break every jar in the game?

      1. John

        Okay, so this is what i found out so far… I’m not sure if this is just a glich, but i do feel like there is more to the hidden level then just to destroy jars…

        Start any level and use a hint, then leave to the main menu. Enter level 0 and then use another hint. Watch the results!! I noticed that using a hint at the start of each level will offer a different result in level 0. Some will dissapear jars (1,4), whereas others will add walls and “glitched” mountains (8, 9, 10, 11, 13, 15, 16 ,17). I found level 6 to be most intersesting because a hole in the ground appears. What I think is happeneing is that the actions of hints from the levels are being carried over and then duplicated to level 0. Im not sure if this is progress or not but it seems to be very interesting?!! Perhaps we just need to duplicate the right hint actions over to level 0?? This seems like it would take forever to try every possibility. Hope this helps! Keep me posted

        1. John

          Where are you at AppUnwrapper? You’re suppose to have this figured out by now ?

          Can you confirm what I wrote is accurate or do I just have a broken iPad?? Most likely it’s only a glitch but I’m not discarding just yet.

  6. Sapro

    Very interesting game. Still no clue what to do in the secret level or how to use the coordinates.
    Let me know if you do!!

  7. Iggy

    Do you think there’s any significance to the gate block on the opening screen of the game? I’ve tried to find a place to input it, like you do with all the other gate blocks in the game (I’ve tried the 25-block grid in level 1, and the rotating pipes in level 16), but I can’t seem to find a spot for it. Thanks for the walkthrough!

    1. AppUnwrapper

      I considered that, too, but I can’t think of any place it could work. The 25 buttons wouldn’t be enough because the design is too intricate to fit on it.

  8. linda

    Thank you! I was having trouble finding the 3rd letters in the levels.

  9. Alice

    Thanks you so much for the walkthough!! I can’t believe how much effort you put it it, a video and tons marked up screenshots with explanations! And thank you for the letters too. Thank you very much!

  10. Carole

    Thank you so much for the walk through. I was having problems finding the third letters too I’ll be curious what you find in the hidden level. All I can see is jars to break too.

  11. Sapro

    Re level 0 hints; could it try to show us a specific order to break the jars? (No idea what these “weird” hints are trying trying to show)

  12. RayLin

    I’d hate to need to use the walkthrough for all 18 levels – can the game be completed without the “3rd” letters on each level?

    I can then go back later and find the missing ones without glueing myself to your walkthrough. (Which I thank you for whole-heartedly!)

    Thanks!

    1. AppUnwrapper

      The letters are part of some bonus stuff. You can absolutely complete all 18 levels and then go back and look for any letters you missed after.

  13. John

    If you use a hint in level 4 right before you pick up the final key block, a pillar in level 0 will shine bright (like it becomes enabled). Not sure the significance of this find but it is something different.

    1. JOHN

      Don’t use the portal after the hint, just exit out to the main menu. Otherwise the pillar won’t become enabled

  14. Sam

    I noticed while I was watching the walk through for level 0 that the hint in level 0 seems to repeat the action that the hint you previously watched does. For instance, if the first action in the regular level hint is to zoom in on part of the map, then the first action in the level 0 hint will be to zoom in. That’s not the case for each level, which is why you only saw the random walls appearing sometimes, and you had several “boring” hints. The walls you saw appearing were just the broken jars being zoomed in on. I too wonder what would happen if you broke all the jars in the regular levels? Just some food for thought 🙂

  15. Charlie

    I was taking a look at the coordinates independently before finding this walkthrough and I noticed that all the coordinates for levels 2-18 are very small and only the second half of each pair ever breaks the 0.01 mark. So I had the idea of multiplying each pair by 1000, believing that the first numbers never reached 0.01 because latitudes only ever have 2 digits while longitudes can have 3. Sadly, the map results still don’t point to any particular locations and don’t form any pattern but they end up a lot more spread-out this way.

  16. Charlie

    My personal opinion is that all of the coordinates excl. the ones from the final note are too small by a factor of 1000. I went through the process of multiplying them all and looking up the points but they didn’t make a pattern or point to anything meaningful when I tried that either.

    (If another comment by me pops up saying the same thing I apologize, I didn’t see it in my browser upon refreshing the page.)

  17. Mike

    I am making what I think is progress on level 0. Note that there’s that nice tile floor. I’ve got some graph paper and am making a map of jars. I have three hypotheses: 1. The coordinates when layed out on the grid will tell you what pots to break. 2. Perhaps the pots will form a 7×7 grid, in which case I could break them in the pattern given by the tile on the intro screen. 3. Perhaps mapping the broken pots in the hints you discovered will be interesting somehow. I’ll let you know what I discover!

  18. Joe Anderson

    Have you found anything for the bonus level yet?

  19. theserpyllum

    So I might be totally grasping at straws here, but here’s something I found. If you plug in the coordinates of the first 17 levels on Google Maps, be sure to switch the view from “map” to “satellite”. On the map there is nothing, but on the satellite view you can see that the coordinates are all on a small island/group of islands, possibly underwater. I can’t find any info on named/inhabited islands that far west in the Gulf Of Guinea, but the coordinates are DEFINITELY intentionally put on the island/group of islands.

    1. Jack

      This island has a name and even a wikipedia page: Null island. It’s also fictional and completely unrelated to this game. Sorry.

  20. Michael Res

    This is the best walkthrough I have ever come across! I don’t know why 99% are without audio. Yours’ is perfect! Thanks a million!

  21. Dave Latham

    I don’t think the coordinates at geographic lat/lon coordinates (with the possible exception of the final one). Begin at 0,0, and then plot a vector along each new coordinate, and you get a chart that looks unmistakably like one of the portals (omitting the final coordinate pair which are obviously on a different scale and do appear as possible geographic coordinates):

    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Uj2jAzF87urFsAIoDRKOXCQdnAIcniUWBDf2UIKZyFo/

    No idea if this is related to “Level 0”.

    1. Dave Latham

      I tried following the coordinated by tapping the same pattern on the home screen’s portal, but didn’t observe anything unusual. Tried swiping the whole thing also with no effect.

  22. Taylor Kern

    When I open level 0 it shows literally nothing. Just the desert-like background. Maybe it is because I broke all the things in every level?

    1. perico

      Same. Just blank desert background. I’m pretty sure I broke everything I saw as well lol

    2. Notitle

      metoo,maybe when you break all the jars in the level1-18 ,the level 0 will change to the desert-like background?

  23. Luke Ah Ket

    i don,t understand how to play and win level 4 but now time i watched your video and then i can win and understand how to play , thanks for sharing with us,

  24. Olorin

    I have an idea of what level 0 is about. The level 0 contains all the jars in the game. Like what you have demonstrated, level 0 shows the positions of the remaining jars to be cracked in the level which you just entered.

  25. Linda

    RE: #6 of Level 18: AARGH!!
    Taking a coffee break. This is a tough level 🙁

  26. Linda

    # 18 in Level 10 = I know long long short short short long long.
    But I’ve pressed this on all 3 machines and no letter? What am I doing wrong please? BTW, I did finish level 18. just going back through for the missing letters 🙂

  27. Linda

    Sorry – I remembered you make videos and just watched the video and found #3 letter 🙂

      1. Linda

        No – I was just confused – this was the first time I had to press the teleportation square. You said to press but not what and I never thought of the obvious. I watched the video and felt stupid.
        However, I finally did figure out that I didn’t have to do all the level – just find where to put the ‘code’ for the last letter.
        I love Faraway2 with the camera! OMG! How wonderful!

  28. Carolyn

    I am on Level 8 and for the life of me I can’t get the laser to reflect off the triangle! I have adjusted both many times but the triangle still passes through the laser without reflecting…what am I missing?

    1. Anonymous

      Same here, the laser just goes through the triangle. It doesn’t break off….

      1. ClauClauClaudia

        I had this problem. I had to restart the level and that time it worked. The second time I didn’t play around with the gadget the diamond goes in until I placed the diamond. I don’t know if that mattered.

        I think it’s just a bug.

  29. Ron Park

    Stuck at initial screen of level 6 (iPhone 5). Cannot move anywhere – waz up?

  30. Juha

    The only thing I see on level 0 is plain desert.

    1. Kahlan

      Me too

  31. Sofia

    Of one take the coordinates not as places on a map but as movement after the previous place a pattern emerges looking a bit like the gates at the end of each level with the last point pointing straight down from it.

    1. ved

      what do you mean?

  32. Jeff

    So I think I figured out the coordinates. Anadolu (mentioned in one of the early clues) is the Turkish name for Anatolia. The notes also mention something starting at a place that is from around 9000 BC. That can only be Gobekli Tepe. Gobekli Tepe is at 37°13′23″N 38°55′21″E according to Wikipedia. If you assume that is what 0/0 is in the coordinates then the final coordinates (when adjusted) becomes -16.5558212 -68.6116683. Check it out on Google Maps and you are now right at Tiwanaku – another ancient monolith/structure like Gobekli Tepe. And not so coincidentally, Faraway 2 is in the Jungle (a la Bolivia)…

    1. ClauClauClaudia

      Brilliant! I think you’ve solved the coordinates.

  33. Mariam

    Sooo… My theory is that the easter egg, which you call level 0, is how developers tested if the code worked properly, and the giant pot pieces and wierd stuff like that are glitches _ they fixed them but first they recorded them and added them to the app.
    Also, can you make walkthroughs of the new bonus levels? And what happens if you smash the pots?

  34. SouthernBoiSB

    WHERE is letter #2 on level 4? It wasn’t there either times I played it.

  35. E Noonan

    I just can not get the mirror lined up in level 8. Every time I get anywhere near the mirror, the beam of light just gets scattered. Scream

  36. raven

    uuuuuuuuuuuum how do you open the hatch?
    like in level three?

  37. J W

    In level 8, is there a trick to lining up the laser with the diamond? No matter how I move them, it never reflects; it just makes sparks.
