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??

Linda

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 🙁

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.
