This will be a complete step-by-step guide for the iOS and Android point-and-click adventure, The Long Journey, by Midnight Adventures. Feel free to ask for extra help in the comments section.


1. Tap on the path to continue down it to Scene 2. Read the journal entry.


2. Pick up the wire cutters and tap on the bus to get a clue for your journal. Go inside the bus.




3. Pick up the wind-up mouse and leave.


4. Continue down the path to Scene 4. There are some coins on the ground. We don’t have a clue for it yet, so continue on down the path to Scene 5.

5. Go up the stairs to Scene 6 and get a clue for your journal for the coins puzzle. Use the wire cutters to cut through the barbed wire fence.



6. Go back to Scene 4 and solve the coins puzzle to get a toy turtle and record arm.


7. Go back to the bus at Scene 3 and place the turtle on the Fisher Price Activity Center. Pull the rabbit the the left and the turtle to the right to get an old key.


8. Go back to Scene 6 and continue on to Scene 7. You’ll get a journal entry here of a flag.


9. Pick up the carjack and head inside the gas station to Scene 8. Pick up the draw knife.



10. Go through the door to Scene 9 to get a clue for your journal.


11. Use the old key to unlock the door and go through to Scene 10. Use the carjack on the tractor to get the magnet.

12. Use the wire cutters on the padlock to access the light bulb. Use the magnet to get the light bulb.

13. Go back to Scene 8 and add the lightbulb to the rest. We’re missing a clue for them so we’ll have to come back later.

14. Head back to Scene 7 and use the clue from your journal to solve the gas pump puzzle. It says 9521 upside-down, which apparently turns into 1756. Yeah, I don’t like it either. But that’s the answer so enter it and take the sapphire.


15. Go back to Scene 5 and place the sapphire in the eye of the dragon statue. Solve the Tower of Hanoi puzzle and take stained glass 1.

Thank you thank you – I’m passed here but I know you will pass me by like I’m standing still.

I keep opening the game, hoping to see something I missed. I’m subscribing to this w/t.

When will you have the rest of the walkthrough?


Hey Constance – did you know that the Hint System in the game is awesome?!
I only realized after I had posted above. You just click on the magnifying glass in the Inventory Window.


It isn’t really though. Only for some puzzles. Some it just says see the clue in your book, which isn’t much help when you still don’t get it.


Agreed that the hint system is sometimes awesome, somestimes awful. One Hint early in the game (I was testing it) gave me a Hint AND an option for more Detail; that’s awesome. Later, when I needed a hint, it kept telling me to solve the gargoyle puzzle in scene 28 (or 29). The clue for the gargoyles occurs far later in the gameplay; that’s awful. Only good thing was that I certainly couldn’t overuse the hint system.🙃


I’m stuck on the gargoyle puzzle. How are they supposed to be turned.


Need help with the childrens telephone in the bus! Which clue is it in the diary? Thanks!!

Hannah P

Stuck here too – I guess you have to input original colours of the neon sign and then the faded colours, but I can’t work out the combination!

Hannah P

Got it – the clue for the telephone is the two flags.


Thanks! I tried for so long, but it didn’t help. Suddenly it just worked? After several attempts!

Now I am stuck on the mailbox…


The colours of the 2 flags


The flags arnt working for me

Stuck in 3 dials scene 30 please help


I’m stuck here too! I have two clues in my notebook that seem like they could be for this puzzle: one is a triangle shape with red, green, and blue corners, and the other shows a trio of circles in a pyramid (red, green, and yellow). I’ve tried every triangular combination of red, green and yellow and red, green and blue on these dials and I can’t figure it out!


Use the triangle clue to line up the corresponding color in the corresponding position on the corresponding dial. (E.g. Red jewel on the top of the top dial).


Sorry but I Need a More exactly help : Red is on the Top, but what Color is on Bottom left and right?? I don’t understand the triangle clue…


I’m stuck on the bridge, scene 24. The hint says I already have the clue, but what is the combination of the bells?


I was stuck on the bells, too. First you need a note, which can be found in scene 22 (above the gramophon). If you look at the note the 4 signs found on the bells are ticked off, some multiple times. Now ring the bells from left to the right as often as it is ticked off in the note. From left to right it should be 2x, 2x, 1x, 3x.

Stuck on the bird grid puzzle no idea


Me too don’t have a clue

Kornelia De Jong

Auf ein Uhr der blau weißer Vogel. Auf drei Uhr der rote mit langem Schwanz. Auf vier Uhr der Kolibri. Auf sieben Uhr lila weiss. Auf neun Uhr der blau mit hellblauen Punkten und langer Schwanz. Zehn Uhr der rote einfarbiger Vogel.

Kornelia De Jong

Ich habe die Antwort für das Puzzle im Baum mit den birds.
Auf ein Uhr der blauen weißen Vogel. Auf drei Uhr der Roten mit langen Schwanz. Auf vier Uhr der Kolibri. Auf sieben Uhr lila weiß. Auf der Rückseite der blauen mit hellblauen Punkten und längeren Schwanz. Zehn Uhr der roten einfarbigen Vogel.


BIRD GRID PUZZLE Hints: You solve this one without collecting any items or diary clues. First, note that the outside circle of birds cannot be moved. The bird in the center means nothing; that’s where your prize item(s) will appear. The middle ring of birds can be swapped around; select any two and they will exchange places. Solution: When you look at a bird on the outside ring, note its silhouette and coloring. Look at an adjacent bird on the outside ring and note its silhouette and coloring. Find a bird on the inner ring which has the silhouette of… Read more »

I don’t understand why the walkthrough is of only the beginning. Very frustrating


Agreed, I,m on scene 64 with the toy phone on the bus but no clue.
Nothing on notes about this scene.


Stuck too on toy phone. No answer from developer. Please reply if you have reached an answer!! Thank you so much!


It is the colors of the two flags. First one is supposed to be blue but looks Grey. 406109. I had to email developer! Now can’t find the tea bag or complete the 4 crazy pictures in café.


You have to go left of the bus to see the 2 flags and then you can use the flag colors on the toy phone 406109


I am really stuck on the flower padlock puzzle (scene 67). My hints are prompting me to solve it, but nothing is working. I tried to logic my way through it using every combination, but I’ve had no luck. I’m afraid I’m missing something obvious, but I have no idea what it is. Any ideas?


The flower padlock clue is in your diary; the three circles of colour relate the colours of the flowers.


Thanks. Do you mean the red, green, and yellow circles? I have that entry, and I’ve tried everything I can think of, but no luck. Do you mind sharing how you solved that?


Never mind, I figured it out. I didn’t realize that the middle piece moved as well. Thanks!


How did you solve the circles? I’ve been playing around with it too long!


Stuck on the fuse box puzzle in the bowling alley (scene 88).
Not sure if the map clue is the solution or I’m missing a clue.


Stuck on box too!!!!


I got it last night, it is the map clue.


I used the directions of the 4 feathers in diary.

Kornelia De Jong

Hinweis sind die Pfeile von der Landkarte

Well I made to the end and they tell me to wet the dry tea bag I don’t even have


I was stuck on that for a long time! It’s there in one of the scenes, it’s just not very visible.


It is in the toy phone.!:)


Can you please tell me about the crazy pictures in the café hallway? I guess they go in empty frame in bedroom but no order I try to take them down works. I lack that and finding the tea bag. Where did you find it?

Kornelia De Jong

Rot, lila, grün, blau


The tea bag comes out if the telephone with the coin

Patricia Swope

Need help in solving the mailbox puzzle in scene 75…..Can’t understand the clue in the book


12354687 I think. I used the dots on the tree with the woodpecker in the book

Kornelia De Jong

Ziffern beim Postfach verschiebbar. Muss in die Reihenfolge von 12354687 kommen. Freies Feld unten rechts.


Need help for scene 30 with 3 circles. Each circle has 6 coloured jewels.


How do you solve the gargoyles puzzle?

Kornelia De Jong

Rechter löwe schaut nach links. Linker Löwe nach rechts. In der Mitte nach vorne


Thank you

C Me

Please translate this solution for gargoyles


How do the stretch portraits in the hall work? I think the clue is the tea stains on the wall, but I can’t seem to get the heights correct.


How do you get to scene 94?? I’ve tried everything


Me either I’m having trouble


I managed to figure it out you have to go by the drip stains of the tea so the first one you stretch a little bit second a bit higher than the first third stretch all the way up and the fourth one a bit higher than the second hope this helps

Kornelia De Jong

Brauche Hilfe im Garten hinter der Küche linke Wand. Helle und dunkle Button. Wie sollen sie stehen? Komme nicht weiter. Danke für Hilfe

Patricia Swope

Need help with the checkerboard in scene 94….anyone solved it yet? If so please share…it’s giving me serious headache


I’m stuck there too! Did you get it yet?

Patricia Swope

Sorry it’s scene 91 checkerboard….Need help


I tried solving it with the “blue” windows – but you have to use the “yellow” windows from the overlook – picture should be in your notes.
The tiles from the lower squares move where you need to put the “yellow” windows.


Done! Gosh but I hate having to wait another year for the next game 🙁


Confusing, I can’t get the colours to stick!


Still can’t get it!

Couldn’t find tea bag so restarted game. I have since restarted 2 more times because of the lion statues. I don’t have the pictures of the 3 women and the hint tells me to solve it. I had it the first to around. It won’t let you solve it until you actually have the clue. HELP


I’m so sorry Connie. I couldn’t find the tea bag either but when I went back to the bus, there it was sitting in the telephone. I missed it when I took the coin. 🙁
Can you still access your first profile? If you can, just go back to the bus and look again.

It won’t let me back in the bus


I also can’t get on the bus after I got the coin.


Jessy, I had to click several spots on the bus but it did let me on and I got the tea bag.
Good Luck!


I’ve clicked all over the doorway to the bus and I can’t get back on. So I tried windows, roof… Do you remember exactly where you clicked?


I think I just clicked the front of the bus and the back of the bus. I must have gotten lucky with the “sweet” spot.

I finished the game, but what is the blocks and key puzzle in the tree? It doesn’t sound familiar.
I’m sorry – I know I did it but it just isn’t ringing a bell 🙁


Omg, I’m so dumb, I was trying to get on the yellow school bus at the very beginnng! No problem with the rusty bus holding toy phone. All set. Thank you!


P.s., the blocks and key puzzle in the tree is killing me. It’s glitchy in the way it moves, but the game developer promises me it is solvable.


scene 75 mail box ???


omid – you remember those little square boxes we played with as kids?
you have to rearrange the numbers the way the woodpecker had them on the tree.
look in your diary. they slide.


Need help with tibetan flags on scene 56. Thanks!


Start with the yellow on the left and work round clockwise the colours in the book Y, B, W, G, R,G,W


Jessy, the blocks and key puzzle in the tree is just a slider. You just have to move the block on the right so the key can get out.
It is a little tricky, the blocks stick a bit, but it is doable. But it is only the one long block on the right holding the key in place.
Good Luck!


Thank you so much! I finally got them to slide without jumping around or sticking.


the flags were hard for me too Guy – both times I had to do it (replaying the game)

just keep in mind the order of the colors and keep moving them until it just works and you get the gloves. it solves so fast that I am unable to tell you the order – maybe someone smarter will be able to.

I still can’t find clue for the lions. I can’t pass it until I find it. My First time around before resetting game due to teabags i had It.


I’m pretty sure the clue for the Lion’s was the 3 portraits hanging in the old plantation type house. 2 outer face in, the middle faces you – if memory is right.
Good Luck! This is the same clue used later for the mannequins.

I can’t get to the plantation house without solving the lions


I think the clue for the lions is the feathers (which represent the ultimate position of the wings).


maybe. connie can try both 🙂


I agree, Linda. I think they both accomplish the same thing! 🙂

Mrs K

Right lion looks left
Left lion looks right
Middle lion looks ahead


I can’t figure out scene 56 with the Tibetan flag. Anyone have tips?
