Alleys: Walkthrough Guide, Tips and Tricks

Alleys
By: THEMEr

Alleys is a new 3D adventure game by THEMEr. It takes place in an empty theme park and you need to find four special keys to escape. Much of the game is about looking carefully in and under things for keys, which makes it a bit difficult to make a step-by-step guide, especially since it’s in 3D. But I’m posting videos of my playthrough and I’m also going to include some helpful tips and tricks for those who find themselves hopelessly stuck.

Tips & Tricks:

– Zoom in on things and pan the camera around to find keys and tool cards. They can be easy to miss if you’re not paying close attention. Look up, look down, search every nook and cranny!

– This game has an inventory, but instead of carrying around object in your bag like a ladder, you have Tool Cards. These act the same way as inventory items, but they just look like cards. Unlike most adventure games, you can’t just walk around and try to use them on things. Instead, when you tap on a door or object, the game will either tell you you don’t have the right tool for the job, or it will open your inventory and ask you to find the right card.

– I realized this about 45 minutes into my game and I wish I noticed it sooner, but you can climb up ladders. I was very surprised when I climbed up my first one, as I thought they were just decoration. So be observant and don’t ignore things.

– Make sure to check in at every new place you encounter! Check-in points are needed to unlock certain areas, so you need to accumulate them.

– Don’t worry about spending your keys and running out. The game always has enough lying around as long as you’re observant. You can’t get truly stuck because you spent your keys on a chest instead of a door. If you don’t have enough keys, keep exploring.

– The game keeps a list of goals for you. They’re useful, but you should also make a list for yourself — either physically or mentally — of locked doors and other inaccessible areas you’ve passed by and what’s needed to open them.

– You’ll eventually get a map, but I’m bad at reading maps so it’s not helping me much, but maybe it will help you.

– Puzzle Hint: There’s a door that only opens at a specific time. There’s also a clock somewhere! Work it out. 😉

– Again, explore! So far, there haven’t been any difficult puzzles. It’s more about keeping your eyes open and being willing to retrace your steps to see if you’ve missed anything.

Have found all four keys, but cannot find the check-in for the hidden treasure.

Thank you but I am not sure what you mean?

Susan Agee

Ahh. I understand. Thank-you!!!!

Susan Agee

So I had previously followed the Wall pics and found the matching ones. It said you solved the treasure hunt but then nothing happened, and it won’t let me check in at the upper level. Must be a glitch?

Susan Agee

Lol. I figured it out. I needed to do the check in at the mine. Phew!

William Hu

I think the game starts getting quite non-linear later on!
I did not find all four keys, but did manage to escape from the park… it’d be a spoiler to say just how.
Interestingly, I can’t re-access that save file after I left the park. So someday when I have the endurance I’ll take another dip into Alleys and see if I can 100% complete the game with all secrets found, all nooks and crannies explored…

Ivo

Did you escape via the miners area (as I) or….?

Terri Beckman

I am stuck! I have found 3 keys have found the mine and used the booth. Found where there was pirate treasure. Have scoured the sewer system endlessly. Now where to go can’t find cards for the vase or the door in the 1 st area.

Susan Agee

It’s been awhile that I played, having achieved 34 objectives, all keys, and all but 2 check-ins, but what helped me is the objectives have a little symbol to signify the area the objective can be achieved. (Which area the keys can be found). I plan to go back and find the treasure and the remaining check-ins. There is also a hidden area that requires a written code. Interesting!!

Help, I’ve found 3 key safes but seemed to have trapped myself in the miner’s house, unable to lift the spell on the door under the stairs or open the second chest on the floor in the master bedroom, although I have cards and keys leftover. Is there any trick to get out or go back, or is this the end of my game? Thanks.

Ivo

What a great game. But the ending was kind of strange… obviously there is more than 1 ending. I was not able to return once I entered the mine at the spot where ai expected to find the treasure… Hope there will be an update with which you can return after. Great game and dedinitely worth the money

Julie

Help!!! I can’t get on the bus and I have to right tool/key thingy

Lisa

Please help! I’m fairly far along but I keep going back to the starting point where there is a card behind the first chest. It requires a code to pick it up. On the keyboard it shows d…e and I can’t figure out what could be. Anyone know?

Susan Agee

I finished the game with all keys/objectives/treasure, etc. and never figured out what that was about. Perhaps for future?? Great game though!!!

Lisa

Thank you Susan. I was afraid it was the family crest card which I haven’t found yet.

Bill

Could not fide the cose for the code card behind the big box by the main enterence….
Did anybody figure it out?

Lisa

Apparently that card does nothing now. Maybe in a future update.

Lisa

I have all keys and finished the Miners house. I can leave town through the closet but I don’t want toend the game.
How can I leave the house and go back into town?

Lisa

I got out.

Klc

I’m stuck in the same spot and don’t want to have to leave the town either. Did you “escape” the mining owners house or leave town thu the closet? I keep going back to every room and can’t figure out how to escape otherwise. Any help/guidance you could provide is appreciated!

Lisa

Hi Klc,
I took a chance as there was no other option, and left from the closet under the stairs. Thankfully it only takes you out of the house but not out of the game. You end up back in town where you can complete things then leave the game if you wish, from the mine.

Klc

Awesome! Thanks Lisa!

Lisa

Any hints for how to enter the library? It’s all I have left to do before leaving town.

Susan Agee

Its been too long since I played, but the what I remember is that I should’ve figured it out sooner than later. (Perhaps I had the card in hand?) Another great game is The Eyes of Ara. Good luck!!
