Adventure Escape: The Scottish Castle – Walkthrough Guide

Adventure Escape: The Scottish Castle
By: Haiku Games

Adventure Escape: The Castle is the very first game from Haiku Games. It has you trapped in a Scottish castle, solving puzzles in order to escape. It’s not as polished as their others, but I wanted to make a walkthrough for it anyway. This is a work in progress, so please bear with me. Feel free to ask for extra help in the comments section.

See my other Adventure Escape walkthroughs here.


Act 1, The Dungeon:

You can watch my video for Act 1 or continue below for my step-by-step guide.

1. Break the vase to get some hint stars. Then solve the simple puzzle on the door and go through.

2. Tap on the mice on the floor. You need to follow the coconut shell that has the handle in it. I can’t help you with this because it changes each time.

3. Move the pillow aside to get a hammer and then use the hammer to break through the crack in the wall.

4. Tap on the box and solve the labyrinth puzzle. It’s a little annoying because the tilt controls are imprecise. You need to avoid the holes and get the ball to the green button. Then take the key from inside the box.

5. Go back to the first room and use the hammer to break the boxes and get more stars. Then use the key to unlock the door and go through.

6. Use the handle on the drawer on the table to open it and take the lump of iron from inside.

7. Move the bookshelves aside to reveal two clues that say UDU and DD. They stand for Up and Down. Move the group of three levers so they’re Up, Down, Up. Move the two levers both Down.

8. A door will open, revealing an anvil. Place the lump of iron on it and use the hammer to shape it into a makeshift blade.

9. Use the blade to cut the ropes over the door and pick up a piece of rope. Then go through the door.

10. Attach the rope to the hook and pull it down to make the shelf move. We need a 4-digit number. First, balance the scale. To do so, place two 1000 plates, one 100, three 10, and two 1 plates on the scale. So the weight you get is 2132. Enter 2132 into the wall combination lock. Then go through the door to complete Act 1.

Stay tuned for Act 2!

Just sharing for the Android audience: I think this game won’t play on Android 9 and maybe not on Android 8. The puzzles that rely on precise timing or touching were difficult the first time I played it, and its playability on Android devices has been deteriorating. For me, it freezes on the loading the Unity splash screen on two devices running Android 9, and I think I first encountered that behavior on Android 8.

Thank you so much for your site! I’m usually fairly good at these escape games but every so often I hit a road block where I just can’t see the solution. I got about 6 chapters into this one and I can’t figure out the potions in the room after the boulders, it’s the first time this one has tripped me up. Can’t wait for your next few parts!

I think I may have figured it out, you have to arrange the pierces to fit to each flask and then light the candle. I don’t know if I can post a photo here but the first one the pieces make a sort of backwards question mark and the middle one a normal question mark if that makes sense?

I was able to figure out how to piece them all together but I’m stuck on the potions too. I got stuck trying to find all of the potions. I knew to light the candles and all that, but I only have the yellow potion

Although I submitted a claim that The Scottish Castle seemed not to play on Android 9 (and maybe not 8), I discovered that it will play on my cell phone that runs Android 9. The phone is several years old, has a relativelt small screen, and reached Android 9 only through 2 or more version updates. Now I am hopeful for more walkthrough text, because At least one number puzzle has me stumped.

Just wondering if you finished this one or not – I’m stuck in Act 5!

I love your walkthroughs, they’re excellent.

You have to hold your phone flat and do it like you would in RL. Makes it a million times easier. Also, go very slowly.

I would if I could use all my stars to skip the footprint puzzle but it does not seem to be possible and there is no way I’m going to get to the door by a solution that depends on me!

If that’s the footprint puzzle where you have to not get burnt, then it’s


But be quick! If you stay in one spot for too long, you get incinerated!

Nvm! Post and solve fairy cane to my assistance 😂

Yes, the labyrinth ones were annoying, but there were some more annoying ones than that!! Finished it now, and on to another!

Thanks again 😀

I have discovered that if you go back to the beginning, you can collect stars again. But you must play til it saves the game to keep the stars. Hope this helps you out to finish the walkthrough. I was able to collect the stars to pass the labyrinth by doing that

Does anyone know what to do in the kitchen to get past the cow? I’ve given her some beer, but I can’t find the green stuff anywhere. There are the following pairs characters scratched into furniture/walls/doors: 7d 90 5c b2, and a four squares on the wall that I can enter numbers into. But I really can’t work it out. Any help much appreciated!!

There is a key you have to find. I just started tapping on the left side of the room where the cow is and somehow found a key (I think it was on the floor near the table). It unlocks the chest in the room where the beer tap is. in the chest are some stars and the green leaf.

Has anyone figured out the code in the final act? I see that I have to add multiply and subtract but I can’t figure it out. Please help!
