Chapter 7, The Temple:

You can watch my video for Chapter 7 or continue below for my step-by-step guide.

1. Tap quickly to pull up the elevator. Xochi runs off. The sheriff arrives. Wait, he’s not the sheriff after all! Oh no! He forces everyone into the building nearby and blocks the exit.

2. Pick up the gaff tape, lighter, heart pills, and hacker tablet. Take the wooden board from the right statue’s mouth.

3. Use the lighter to light the candles in the right statue’s mouth. Then look at the circles at the top of the screen. They’re telling you how to arrange the candles. The number of circles tells you the length of the candle. So it goes 2, 5, 3, 5, 5, 6, 5.

4. Arrange the cancels as shown below and take the two triangle chips.

5. Add the two triangle chips to the rest and solve the puzzle. You need to move the triangles around so they complete the image of the tree.

6. Fix the broken ladder using the tape and climb up.

7. Take the torch and go back down the ladder to use the candles to light it.

8. Head back up and place the torch down. Now you can see! Pick up the statue hand.

9. Tape the hand back onto the statue.

10. Read the writing on the wall. It says:

“Purify yourself with three sacrifices.

Burn your heart’s strength.

Drown your…treasure? Drown what’s dead?

Give me your happy singing? Song? Songbirds?”

11. Lets solve the boards puzzle. Add the board from your inventory and then move the boards around to form an image. The sun shows you a spot downstairs that’s important. Take the sea sponge.

12. Wet the sea sponge in the bowl of water.

13. Let’s solve the sudoku puzzle on the wall. Each row or diagonal of the triangle can only have one of each symbol. You can copy my solution if you’re stuck.

14. Go back down and use the sponge to clean all the grime from the floor. You can also just clean the spot shown on the wooden boards. There’s four stones to the left. Tap on them and change the symbols to those on the three corners, center and bottom center of the Sudoku puzzle.

15. Unroll the gold mesh cloth. Then grab the cloth and the small statue that was inside.

16. Go back up. Place the tablet by the statue’s ear (it can play music), the small statue in the bowl of water, and the heart pills in the bowl above the torch. There’s an explosion!

17. Examine the hole behind the statue. Use the gold cloth to uhhh create a connection between the tablet and the sheriff’s Jeep.

18. For this hacking puzzle, you need to move all the red squares to the top row, the green squares to the middle row. And the blue squares to the bottom row.

19. Tap the tablet a few times and his Jeep will drive into the hole, sending him to the underworld. And that’s the end of the chapter!

    Please give directions on how to do vehicle diagnostics puzzles.

    1. Charliemilo

      1) Start with red row, where there’s another colour (not red) pull that bar down (with circle button) and move the second row (outlined green) over until a red colour takes its place in that top row spot. 2) To move red from a bottom row, pull down a any column and move the bottom row over to put that red on the second row of the pulled down column, pull it back up and repeat step one to move it to the top row by pulling down a column with no red in it’s to row square. Same method of step two to move green squares to second row.
