Tangle Tower: Complete Walkthrough Guide

Tangle Tower
By: SFB Games

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? I’ve found three of the combination but I’m at a loss to the one with the lips symbol.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! I’m so stuck 🙁

pedro stee

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? I’ve tried playing the cracked tape in the gramophone but it’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? I’ve looked everywhere!


Hey folks, there are two tapes. One is in the fountain.


Thank you!


You’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?

Alex Bielanski

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.

Maas Abdulamir

The framed sheet of music and ask her to play the tune


Look in the pond again. You’ll find another tape. I’m sure you can figure it out from there…


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


I can’t figure out how to unlock the treasure chest in the workshop, does anyone else know?


I’m having the same problem. I can’t figure it for the life of me.

pedro stee

use the painting on front to find corresponding grid coords


If it’s the one I’m thinking of – try turning your head to one side to see the picture at a different angle 🙂


Can someone help for that😩 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 chest…?! That’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 isn’t difficult.


H6W is the combination.


Have anyone finished the paintbrush puzzle? Because I’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 I’ve made it more confusing but can’t think how to describe it otherwise!


Can you screen shot it and post


Right and how do you expect someone to attach a screenshot…? FFS, some people don’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 o’clock, 9 o’clock, 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock


How can i form the path used to OPEN the safe located in the laboratory? I can’t seem to find a path


This one has me perplexed.


Agreed. Let me know if you all come up with anything…


This is the answer https://ibb.co/9T2zQKR


Thank you!


Anyone solve the magnifying glass yet? I’ve all but given up.


I can’t figure out the clock puzzle at all? I can tell where each clock hand needs to go I just figure out how to get them there without screwing up at least one other one


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 don’t know what I’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. There’s a safe there but I can’t unlock it. Anyone know the combination???
