This is a complete step-by-step walkthrough for the iOS, Android and PC game, Returner 77 by Fantastic, yes. It’s a work in progress, so please bear with me. Feel free to ask for extra help in the comments section.

See my Returner 77 review.


Chapter 1, The Hall:

You can watch my video for this chapter here or continue to my step-by-step guide below.

1. Tap the handle to open the door and go through.

2. Follow the tutorial. Tap on the video print to see Colonel Ling’s message. This is message 01.

3. Double-tap to move forward and pick up the pyramid. Place it in the socket and then follow the tutorial’s instructions.


4. Next, draw a path to connect the stars.


5. You’re in a new room now. Move up and play video print 02. Then solve the rotating discs puzzle and pull the handle towards you.


6. Walk onto the bridge and pick up the charged crystal stick.


7. Turn around and pick up another charged crystal stick.


8. Time to open the puzzle to the right. Pull each of the three handles until all the symbols match.


9. Insert the two charged crystal sticks in the slots and then solve the maze by rotating the whole maze until a handle matches up with a piece that branches outward. Drag the handle out and continue moving each one but by bit until they’re out of the maze. The crystals in the center will activate. Walk to the center for a cutscene.


10. Look down and pick up the mechanical crystal and metal key.


11. Continue on and pick up the coded energy conducting crystal and watch video message 03.


12. Turn around and watch video message 43.


13. Place the crystal key in the slot nearby and solve another rotating disc puzzle.


14. Cross the bridge and watch video message 42. Then, place the coded crystal in the slot and tap the line segments to rotate them until they’re all connected and lit up.


15. For the next puzzle, tap the little nodes to rotate them until there are enough beams pointing towards the center.


16. Continue across the bridge to the next set of puzzles. These are line-drawing puzzles similar to what you find in The Witness. I’ll try to grab a screenshot of each solution.




17. Cross the bridge to the next set of line-drawing puzzles.




18. Continue over the bridge to the next set of puzzles.




19. Continue over the bridge to the last set of line-drawing puzzles.




20. Walk to the center of the room to complete the chapter.

Still enjoying! I needed the w/t for the last 2 puzzles in the Hallway – now I’m back for a puzzle on the bridge.
It’s a wonderfully lovely game! Sometimes I turn around and just look! Truly amazing artwork. You should see it on my iPad Pro 12.9″ WOW!

Hi- What is the logic behind the first three line drawing puzzles? I don’t see a rational reason to chose these paths??

Reply to  Julian

Click on the AI – it might take a couple of clicks because the AI is trying to not give away the answers. You will notice “energy squares” and the line must go through them before going to the center.

Hi, thanks. the ai doesn’t offer a clue. But I still don’t see the significance of the path even after knowing the right answer? There are many ways to navigate and go through the little connector pieces and still reach the middle. If you could explain a bit more that would be awesome! Thanks!

Julian, On a few screens, yes there was more than one solution, and then I just followed AppUnwrappers diagrams.

I had done quite a few before I noticed the “energy” squares with a circle in them.

I don’t know how Ms Unwrapper does it – but she always finds the way.

Sorry I can’t be more help.

I guess the last update added the ending! I only realized it today but hadn’t quite finished replaying the entire game yet. I gotta have Heart first, lol.

I can’t figure what to do? I am by the Arch with my “heart” but no idea what or where and the AI is no help 🙁

Yes. I finally did find the staircase and am on my way again.
Thank you very much!

Good evening1

I’ve gone almost all the way through and am now stuck at the triangle puzzle in The Den. Can not figure out how rotating the rings on one pedestal logically creates the code to rotate the rings on the other pedestal. There are lots of difficult puzzles but this one is insolvable. I even followed a YouTube video step by step and the codes I generate are different than the video’s. Peering at the rotating crystals in the background offer no clue. Help!

The number of lit arrows/triangles in each ring on the puzzle to the left equals the number of spaces the corresponding rings on the right puzzle will turn when the code shown on the left is entered on the right. Work to align the symbols

Genius! Thank you for your help Dave, I was really stuck on that bit.

I can’t find the lever that’s missing from one of the puzzles. Anyone have a hint?

Nevermind, I found it. Tip: you’re not looking for a lever.
