SFB Games’ Tangle Tower is the sequel to Detective Grimoire, and has you solving a murder mystery of a woman who seemingly got stabbed by a painting holding a knife. You need to explore the mysterious Tangle Tower for clues to her murder and figure out who actually did it. This walkthrough guide should help you out if you get stuck. Feel free to ask for extra help in the comments section.
I have videos below that take you through the whole game, but I made a step-by-step guide as well. Just scroll down for that.

Part 8, The End:
1. You start at Lake’s Edge. Tap on Sally to see hers and Detective Grimoire’s dialogue. They’ll point out the map and the case file. The icon for the case file is also how you access any items/clues you pick up. Notice the birds in the birdbath are singing a little tune. There’s nothing else of importance here right now, so look at the case file and then go to the map.
2. Head right over to the Gardens. Look around. The important objects are the Harp Statue and the Damaged Tape in the water. We’ll come back to both of them.
3. Open the map again. Head right to the Main Entrance. Pick up the red envelope and inspect it to get an Opened Letter. Also, notice the bell plays a little melody and that the O fell off from the sign.
4. Open the map and head up to the Grand Hall. There’s not much to do here, but you can look at the Fellow and Pointer family trees.
5. Open the map. Head up to the crime scene, Flora’s Tower, which is at the top of the west tower. It should be highlighted for you. There’s a lot to do here! I’ve circled all the clues and items of interest. You can still poke around at other things, but they’re optional.
6. First, tap on the painting and then complete the sentence. It should say:
“Flora’s portrait is holding a knife tipped with blood because it stabbed Freya…”
7. Then, look at Freya’s Paints, the Brush & Palette, and the blood stain on the floor. Then inspect the Gramaphone. There’s a Cracked Tape inside. Use the gramaphone to listen to the Cracked Tape and the Damaged Tape. You’ll learn that the Cracked Tape has piano music on it and the Damaged Tape has someone humming a tune. Remember that for later.
8. Next, tap on the gemstone egg and solve the puzzle. You need to look at the back of it to see the pattern. Then copy the colored gemstones from each unique line onto the other side. I’ve posted screenshots to help. There’s nothing inside, but now you’ll have the Empty Egg as a clue.
9. Talk to Flora. She won’t say much, but you should make sure you’ve checked off Encounter, Yourself, Yesterday, and Statement.
10. Leave the room. We now have a lot more freedom to explore. Let’s start with the upper left room, the Workshop. Pick up the Painted Model and examine the locked chest and treasure map for a puzzle. We’ll talk to Felix Fellows after we solve the puzzle.
11. Look at the painting on the box and notice that you’re standing on the X. To the left is a sea monster and to the right and a bit further away is a rock. Between them, in the distance, is a palm tree and two birds. The birds are the big clue that helps you find the X on the map. It’s sideways and I highlighted it for you. Find the coordination of the X and you get H6. youre also looking west when you stand on the X and look at the palm tree, which is W. So enter H6W. You’ll find Painted Models inside.
12. Now talk to Felix. Again, make sure you’ve talked to him and gotten all the info from Encounter, Yourself, Yesterday, and Statement.
13. Open the map and head down to Freya’s Room. Find Freya’s Drawings on the wall and pick up the photo of the big red painting. Also, find the locked box on the floor. It’s a puzzle!
14. For the paint brushes puzzle, first arrange all the scraps of paper so they provide a proper clue. Then use the shapes, colors and height clues to figure out the order of the brushes. It should look like the image below. There’s a Ripped Photo inside.
15. Open the map and head down to the Library. Look at the bird book and the chalkboard. There’s also a snow globe that doesn’t really do anything but you can look for fun. And last, talk to Fiona/Fifi. Again, make sure you’ve gotten all the info from Encounter, Yourself, Yesterday, and Statement.

Hi, have you completed as far as the Harp Statue? IΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗ve found three of the combination but IΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗m at a loss to the one with the lips symbol.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! IΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗m so stuck 🙁
did you get all the music sources? which ones do you have so far?
I have the birdsong, piano and the doorbell. Do you know where I can find the final one?
Humming on the cassette tape.
Cracked tape? or something?
Are you saying Cracked tape?
How do I get this? IΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗ve tried playing the cracked tape in the gramophone but itΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗s not doing the trick
Am I missing another tape? I had a feeling there should be another one along with the cracked one. Where will I find it? IΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗ve looked everywhere!
Hey folks, there are two tapes. One is in the fountain.
YouΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗ll find it in the lil pond with the harp statue just tap the water
Play the cassette tape from underwater.
1. Tape on gramma phone
2. Birds on pond near boat
3. Make poppy play music note
4. Something in the entrance of the mansion. Sorry I forgot
How do you make poppy play the music note?
How do you make poppy play music this is starting to infuriate me
The music framed on the wall of her room. Ask her about it and you get the option to have her play it for you.
The framed sheet of music and ask her to play the tune
4. Press the doorbell near the entrance
Where is the boat Which pond
Look in the pond again. YouΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗ll find another tape. IΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗m sure you can figure it out from thereΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö¼┬¼
Go to the harp and click on the pond you will find another cassette. Use the gramophone to play the cassette you will get the last music note.
play both cassettes once you have them in floras room
Where is the door bell ╬ô├½├¡Γò₧├åΓö£ΓòóΓö£Γòó
Oh yeah I can help 🙂
You play the cassette of someone humming at the crime scene
I canΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗t figure out how to unlock the treasure chest in the workshop, does anyone else know?
IΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗m having the same problem. I canΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗t figure it for the life of me.
use the painting on front to find corresponding grid coords
If itΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗s the one IΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗m thinking of – try turning your head to one side to see the picture at a different angle 🙂
Can someone help for that╬ô├½├¡Γò₧├åΓö£ΓöÉ╬ô├«├ë im so lost
look at the map and try to compare it with the drawing/painting on the chest.
I tried that but Still nothing. Did u find?
The chestΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö¼┬¼?! ThatΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗s about the easiest puzzle in the entire game! Took me all of 5 seconds – literally! Look at the picture on the front of the chest and then find the corresponding sector on the map and enter its latitude, longitude and cardinal direction. So, for example, if the picture on the chest corresponds to Column E, Row 4 going East, you enter E4E. It really isnΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗t difficult.
H6W is the combination.
Have anyone finished the paintbrush puzzle? Because IΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗m so confused on what the picture is foretelling.
Yes, each row tells you something different. One tells you which colour paint, another says which brush handle colour, another is which shape of brush.
Make sure that each brush you place corresponds with the position on the picture. I think IΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗ve made it more confusing but canΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗t think how to describe it otherwise!
Can you screen shot it and post
Right and how do you expect someone to attach a screenshotΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö¼┬¼? FFS, some people donΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗t have the sense they were born with (if they were born with any!).
no need to be rude. People have attached screenshots
Can you tell a little bit more, cause all brushes corresponds with picture but it isnt correct
Anyone know the solution to the clock puzzle?
From left to right they should be at 3 oΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗clock, 9 oΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗clock, 12 oΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗clock and 6 oΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗clock

How do you achieve the birdsong and the doorbell for the music sources? I already got the piano and cassette tape. And thanks for the help on the paintbrush puzzle.
birdbath at the lake
Birdbath where the game started for bird, silver bells next to the door at the main entrance for bell. Birdbath is to the right of where the boat is tied up. Bells are hanging to the left of the door.
After finding the music sources, what do I do for the harp?
i’m stuck tooo
Did you use the tablet with the sounds to identify the symbols you spin to? Each part of the combination has a symbol on its section corresponding to the symbol that pops up on the tablet when the sound plays. If you donΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗t know what IΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗m talking about with the tablet then you have not progressed far enough through your house investigation.
Did anyone figure out the microscope minigame/puzzle? Because I might be dense or is it a glitch?
I finished them all. Can you explain your issue with it? I might be able to tell you if you are glitched or not.
After solving the harp puzzle, the mouth of the statue opens and leads you to the laboratory. ThereΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗s a safe there but I canΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗t unlock it. Anyone know the combination???

Hey guys for some reason i cant unlock the Suspicion for Fitz. I have tried to ask him about all of the suspect and evidence but still cant unlock it
