The Eyes of Ara: 100% Complete Walkthrough Guide

The Eyes of Ara
By: 100 Stones Interactive

100 Stones Interactive recently brought their PC and console adventure game, The Eyes of Ara, to iOS and Android devices. If you like The Room series, you’ll feel right at home here, though it does involve more searching for hidden items. There are some tricky puzzles and points that can be confusing, so I’m going to try and help you out with this walkthrough guide. It’s a work in progress, so please bear with me. And feel free to ask for extra help in the comments section.

Tips and Tricks:

– If you don’t like pixel hunting, you can turn on the hot spot locator in the settings. There’s one for puzzles and another for hidden items.

– Pause the game to see a list of hidden items you’ve found, like coins and photos.

– Once you’ve done everything you can in an area, it gets closed off to you. You can only zoom in on things if there’s something available there. This keeps you a bit more focused.

– Make sure you look everywhere, even up and down. Some puzzles can be on the floor!

– Just have fun!

Tutorial, The Signal:

You can watch my video for the tutorial and Chapter 1 here or continue on for my step-by-step guide.

Collectibles Found: 5 coins, 1 photo

Also: 1 Book Excerpt, 3 Letters

1. You’re on a boat. Once it stops moving, open the briefcase and grab the keys and photo. Also, read the letter.

2. Get off the boat and head towards the locked gate. Use the key to unlock it and go through.

3. Look around and find the two gear halves and two letters. Combine the gear halves and put them on the sign by the door. Now you can go inside.

4. Open the drawer to get three coins. Then read through the MIA Generator Operator’s Manual on the desk to get a clue.

5. There’s a yellow fuse box above the desk. Open it and pull the correct switches down to match the drawing in the book. It goes: Down, Down, Up, Up, Down, Up. Do the same for the one on the wall and the one on the generator. Now the gate will open.

6. Go through and pick up the two coins from the table. Pull the lever to open the box and take the cylindrical key/battery.

7. Go back to the generator. Look at the space for the cylinder. It says I, II, III on the left, and II, III, I on the right. It’s telling you how to set up the the pieces of the cylinder. The lines that start on the left side have to end up in a different position on the right. If you need help, you can just copy my pattern below. Then just press the big red button to turn on the generator and unlock the next door. Go through.

    Thank you for pointing this game out to us.

    Although you wrote “100 Stones Interactive recently brought their PC and console adventure game, The Eyes of Ara, to iOS and Android devices”, I don’t see it on Google Play, and I don’t see any mention of it even forthcoming for Android on the developer’s public web site. I wish it were available for Android, because I think I would really like this game, but I am an Android user, not IOS.

  3. Terri Beckman

    Please oh please write a step by step guide for the picture rotation puzzles. I am never going to finish the game and it’s a shame that I already paid for this and cannot enjoy the rest. Thank you! I know your the best at these as I totally am not.

    1. AppUnwrapper

      There are cheat codes for that! Assuming you’re talking about the puzzles I think you are.

      1. Terri Beckman

        Thank you for the book detail. I missed that. Your the Best!

    I cannot get the knife to work with the clock. iPhone X

    1. Sherri

      Neither can I.

    2. Sherri

      Actually, have figured it out. The knife has to be put back in inventory after being rotated, then DRAGGED to the clock face. I know it’s an old thread, but those who are just now starting the game, like me, may find this useful.

  5. Bill

    Even after this complete walkthrough, I am still missing 2 coins in chapter 1.

      1. Bill

        Before I found the ones accessible in chapter 2, I had 25/30. I have been reading the guide over and over but I can’t find the 2 more I need. I currently have 28/30.

      2. CatReader

        I agree with Bill; the walkthrough lists only 25 coins within the Chapter 1 section. My problem is even worse; I restarted the game before finishing because of a long break in playing, and through some glitch, this time the count reached only 23 coins for Chapter 1, even though I accessed all the coin areas listed in the written walkthrough. I will be starting the game a 3rd time, after checking the videos to look for the finding of the 26th and 27th coins.

    1. CatReader

      For Bill, and possibly others (including me), if you collect only 25 of 30 coins in Chapter 1 instead of 27, you might have missed some in the upper gallery that contains one knight statue,. There are 2 boxes, each containing 2 coins. In AppUnwrapper’s written walkthrough, look carefully at Step 35. [AppUnwrapper, if you see an earlier post from me on 1/9/2020 about this same subject, please delete it. ]

        Sorry but this is not helpful. I’ve gone through the walkthrough in detail and it does truly only add up to 25 coins in the first part of chpt 1 (28 in total). Here is what I’ve documented for the 25 by step:

        Step 1 – 2 coins
        Step 3 – 2 coins
        Step 6 – 3 coins
        Step 10 – 3 coins
        Step 23 – 2 coins
        Step 24 – 2 coins
        Step 28 – 2 coins
        Step 33 – 3 coins
        Step 35 – 2 + 2 coins (4 total)
        Step 43 – 2 coins

        Total = 25 coins

        I would gladly welcome what I’m missing but have been through this several times. I suspect they are there but that they’re just missing from the walkthrough. I’ll repost I’d ]f I find them but again happy for anyone to point out if there is a step count I’ve missed,

        1. Lasse Ronnenberg

          There are 3 coins inside the secret door with the 6 gargoyle heads around it. Just light up their eyes.

        2. Lasse Ronnenberg

          I think I found 2 coins on a bookshelf in one of the rooms, that I am not sure the guide mentions. I found them by random clicking (or looking for the mouse cursor to change) because the coins were 100% concealed until you click that shelf.

        3. Lasse Ronnenberg

          I now have all 30 coins.

        4. FictioN

          The two missing ones are, i believe, on a shelf in the kitchen area.

        5. Cass

          Hi, I know I’m REALLY late and you might have discovered this by now but I think the 2 coins you’re missing are from Step 17. Otherwise, I think your list is complete. That should get you to 27/30 (with the remaining 3 to be picked up in Chapter 2).

          Hopefully this will help anyone else who might have encountered this issue.

  6. Steve

    It’s also available on Mac via Steam. Finally a decent search game on Mac!

  7. Doug

    I rotated the map and there is a bar illuminating the “subway token”. I can’t pick it up?

  8. Maraea

    For some reason I cannot shift the level that is hidden behind the planks. The game will not let me access the lever. Not sure if its a bug or if the iphone version requires an action to move the planks. Can anyone please help?

  9. Laura

    I can’t find the third yellow orb in chapter one! I’ve gone through the walkthrough twice! Help!

    1. Justin

      My wife and I had the same problem. Look behind the two rolled-up rugs in the storeroom.

  10. Eden sleuth

    The large color puzzle wheel on the right that isn’t controlled by the painting discs is supposed to rotate “directly” but mine doesn’t 🙁 can’t make the colored shapes chain because it can’t be put into correct position.

  11. Gina

    I need a picture picture to all the gargoyles lol. Still missing one.

  12. Jaye

    I cannot get the 3 levers in the cellar to work. Have tried and followed the code on the barrel every way and still nothing. What am I not seeing.

    1. Lasse Ronnenberg

      Make sure you start with all 3 levers in their top position. Exit the puzzle once you have done the combination.

  13. William Wichman

    The Shield won’t connect to the armor

    1. Lasse Ronnenberg

      The symbols need to match AFTER the shield turns to face the other shield. Don’t just copy the positions, try rotating the shield enough so you can see the other shield’s symbol. When the shield is fully turned, the symbols must match. Making them match from the front will not make them match when the shield is turned 180 degrees.

    il me manque un portrait jai pourtant fait la solution mais dans l’inventaire jai 3 portraits.

  15. bery dall

    @appunwrapper you forgot to mention the two coins sitting on the railing next to the laser in STEP 18!
    it would be nice if you updated the walkthrough thx
    the total number of coins (the railing coins included) is 27 guys

    1. Marymyst

      Thank you! I was going crazy trying to find those 2!

  16. EMMANUEL

    Bonjour. Après avoir retiré le levier de la pendule je ne peux pas l’insérer à gauche de la porte. Il devient transparent. Please help me !

  17. EMMANUEL

    Je n’arrive pas insérer le levier à gauche de la porte verte. Il reste transparent

  18. Marymyst

    Thank you! I was going crazy trying to find those 2!

  19. Evergreen

    Step 24 and Step 25 are not in the same room! You have them listed as one being to the left of the other, but they’re two rooms apart. Made me think I was losing it.
