The Eyes of Ara: Chapter 3 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. Here you’ll be able to find everything from Chapter 3, including all hidden collectibles. And feel free to ask for extra help in the comments section.


Tutorial | Chapter 1 | Chapter 2 | Chapter 3 Part 1 | Chapter 3 Part 2 | Chapter 3 Part 3 | Chapter 3 Part 4 | Chapter 3 Part 5 | Chapter 3 Part 6 | Chapter 3 Part 7 | Epilogue | All Letters

Chapter 3, The Pursuit of Knowledge:

If you followed my Chapter 1 walkthrough, should should already have the collectible painting from this chapter.

Collectibles Found Here: 1/2 Warrior Figurines, 30/30 Coins, 2/2 Blue Orbs, 7/7 Photos, (already should have 1/1 Painting)

Also: 7 Book Excerpts, 5 Posters, 3 Computer Logs

1. There’s a lot to do here, so let’s start small. Turn all the way to the right and find the hidden puzzle behind the big urn. Take the photo.

2. Look up higher for a clue. It’s a Capricorn symbol.

3. Ignore the first table to the right for the moment. We need to solve another puzzle before we can push the button. But grab the two coins from the bowl on the other table.

4. There’s another clue up here. It’s a Libra symbol.

5. Ok, let’s deal with the floor puzzle. First, follow the wire from the button on the table to the left machine. Change the arrows on the floor so the current can lead to the machine. Then press the button to activate it. Next, change the symbol it’s holding up to match the first one you saw near the ceiling, the Capricorn symbol. Take the lever.

6. Now do the same for the right machine, changing it to the second symbol you saw, Libra. I didn’t get a screenshot, so I’ll have to get one later. Take the other lever.

7. Place both levers in the slots on the small platform and pull them down to draw a long spiral staircase down from the ceiling. Go up the stairs.

8. Look at the poster to your right. There’s also a ship’s wheel numbered I – VI.

9. Grab the coin from the box to the left of the door.

10. Read the note resting on the cardboard box. It’s a clue!

11. We can’t do anything else in here right now so head through the door to the lab. Turn to the right and look at the notes on the white board and read the journal entry.

12. Get the photo from a box on one of the shelves.

13. Look at the notes on the white board to the left and grab the two coins. Also, notice the dragon on the computer screen.

14. There’s not much else we can do in here right now, so head through the door behind you. Look at the dates under the bust to the right: 1805 – 1892.

15. Also, find the photo behind the shield.

I really wish you could give some help with the ceiling tile puzzle. I’ve set it up dozen times but. . nope.

After i finish the walkthrough, I plan to make videos, so that may help more. But even that….it may be hard to follow.
My best advice is to go keep going forward and if that doesn’t work, trace your steps backward.


Do you have to use all the tiles.


Yes, use all the tiles. it helps to work from one end til you get stuck then work from the other end.

Yup, that’s exactly what I did and somewhere in the middle it was solved. 🙂


Don’t forget the tile on the floor. I didn’t see that one right away.


It happens to me too. Never beat the game because of that.


Turn up the brightness on your screen to maximum.


There is one tile on the floor

Rachel Yates

Make sure to switch the one on the floor!


My gane seems to have some glitches. I’ve been trying to “activate” the planetarium projector in the third mode with all the planet light off for two days, but nothing happens. Also, in the lower cavern where there are two chains to pull in order to display the star chart, only one will move. Therefore, no star chart even if I did have the third orb. Very annoying!

Did you move the slider to the right before activating?


I was also having issues getting this step to work. I went back to having the first symbol lit (with all the planet symbols activated), then pushed the single dot, then turned them all off, pushed the switch to the right, then finally pushed activate. I’m unsure if it was a fluke but it seemed to fix my problem.

Thinking about it more, I think that’s intentional. The clue shows all the planets and then none of them. It just might not be clear when you’re doing it whether both steps were part of it, but I think they are.


Just tried it this way. It worked. Thanks. Now, about the unmoving chain in the lower cavern…

Shelley Trazkovich

There are more than 2 chains. Look around more for the second one that moves.


Didn’t work for me


LMK I did this several times with no luck then I wondered if being on the pillow or starting order impacted it. So I went back to pillow and rotated view until I got all the planets displayed and on while the ‘H’ was selected I then went to console and chaged to left circle and then to
Single dot and turned then all off (starting with ‘earth’ and moving right, pushed slider to right and activate. It worked!


#27. I’m farther in the game but I still can’t pull the left chain. Right chain remains down. Any ideas? I have an orb!


Grab the chain higher and pull it down and release it more slowly.


I finished the game but still have 3 orbs! No star chart because the left chain goes back up after I pull it. The right chain has stayed down. Any advice?

You need to hold it down for a bit.


Thanks! Turns out pulling verrry slowly worked


There is something really weird going on. I did the thing with the projector, noticed the blinking lights but when I changed scene they went off. And now they won’t light again even if I redo the projecto tiles.


In the projecter room I put Drago in the star chart. The two green lights went on. Went down to the computer and it denied me access. Then all the green lights went off all the way up to the projecter. Now I can’t get the green lights to come on again. Been moving constellations around then go back to the dragon. Still nothing. I’m I missing a reset button or something? If not is it possible to start the chapter over again?


Did you ever figure this out? My light went off too…


I’m a bit stuck. Referring to your no. 27, no matter what I do, I can pull the chain down, but it always slides back up, not opening the hidden constellation. I already have the orbs, but without the constellation I cannot finish / continue.
Any idea what I need to do? What did I miss?
Thanks in advance!


I had the same problem! You have to pull it and hold your finger down, not let up. If that doesn’t work, then try to do it quickly, by pulling downwards with your finger in a quick motion and letting up at the bottom click. I tried forever on this until I got….finally! What a bug


I do not believe that the reason the answer is 4 to the last ship wheel is because 4 stars are on top. If you look at the wave length clue there is an odd shape with lines radiating out at angles. if you take those lines and put them over star poster like earlier star puzzle then after adding and subtracting the answer is 4. There wouldn’t be a reason for that shape under the wave length clue otherwise.

Thank You so much for being YOU. I couldn’t enjoy these adventure escape games like The Room series and Ara without you. D. Anderson


In the planetarium is there a way to restart the puzzle. I did it in the wrong order now I’m stuck and dont want to start the entire game over again for the second time


I hate to look stupid, but I cannot find the wheel in the generator room. We are talking about the room we first entered from outside? Where should I be looking?


After getting key. Return to the Planetarium be sure to press the regular Sun button on the Box on the floor then turn on all of the planets make sure the slider is to the left hit activate then turn on the third sun (alien sun) shut off all planets. Slider to the right and activate. Then get orb


It works :-). Thanks a lot!


I cannot get the lever puzzle to work. Do you put them all to the top each time? Only make one pattern and back out to let it auto reset or what? Very frustrating.


Me neither, has someone done a video on this? I’ve tried hundreds of times now, nothing happens, it’s so fruatrating.


Assign each lever a number, 1-3, starting from the left. Now look at the clue again. Assume the group of dots is a number. move the levers in that order.

Brad R.

Totally stuck! I cannot get the key to work on the box, next to the thermometers.
Also, I set up the Draco constellation, the lil green lights came on, left the room, came back and they were off, and will not reset :/

Hi, you wrote to get the yellow orb in the planetarium you have to turn ON all the symbols … thats not right. All the symbols must be turned OFF then it works 🙂
