Circulous: Act 1 Scene 2 Walkthrough Guide

By: Chain Reaction Games / gary gogis

Circulous is the latest puzzle game from Chain Reaction Games, the developer of The Company Game. You play as Amanda Trouser, who gets hired by Circulous after being fired from her old job. There are some tricky puzzles, so this walkthrough guide should help you if you get stuck. Feel free to ask for extra help in the comments section.

See my Circulous review here.


Act 1, Scene 1 | Scene 2, Page 1 | Page 2 | Page 3 | Page 4 | Act 2

Act 1, Scene 2:

1. You’re at the construction site waiting for your ride. When the car shows up, get inside.

2. Eventually, the car will stop at a light. Check your incoming texts from Tracy Cinco. She says that wasnΓÇÖt the car they sent for you, so you need to get out of there. The important texts are these:

“I wish I could help directly, but I don’t want them to catch me sending messages…

Maybe you’ll be able to escape at the next stoplight ╬ô├½├¡Γò₧├åΓö£ΓöÉΓö£┬╜”

Notice also that the radio talks about a malfunctioning light. We’ll come back to this.

3. Let’s figure out how to escape the car. Take a look around you and notice a few things. There’s a key we can’t reach, dice hanging from the mirror, and the radio is set to 531.7. There’s also a locked seatbelt from SAFEBELT and some puzzles on the door itself.

4. Look at the door. Use the clue from the hanging dice to figure out which of the nine buttons to press. It should look like a 5 side on a die.

5. For the compass puzzle, you need to rotate the needle so there’s an opening for each slider to slide out and complete the circle. Just focus on one at a time. It should look like this in the end and then you’ll add the magnet to your inventory.

6. There’s a torn piece of paper on the door. Match the pieces up so you can read it. It tells you to go to, with the xxxxx being your remote access code, which is CC135.

7. So open your device and open the WebView app. Enter It says, “To unlock your SafeBelt, just input your security code above.” That’s strange, since it wants you to enter it below. Hmmmmm. Very curious. We need some information from the car again, so leave the armrest view.

8. This will automatically trigger an inventory tutorial. It tells you to drag items to use them. Let’s try it out by using the compass magnet to get the key.

9. While we’re here, notice the radio station has three dials below it that match those on the SafeBelt website. Also, 531.7 upside down looks like LIES. The website’s text was a clue to turn it upside-down.

10. So now, go back to the SafeBelt website and enter LIES the security code and match the dials to the upside-down version of them. Then press UNLOCK. Now you can unbuckle your seat belt!

11. Next, use the key in the door and turn it left to reveal the final puzzle. We need a four-letter word.

12. Now we’ll finally go back to doing what the texts hinted at and look at the stoplight. It’s Morse code! This is what you get if you pay attention to the red light blinking:


– Γò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£ΓöéΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£Γöé-


Use the Decoder app to translate it into Morse and you get: EXIT

(Achievement Alert: Last chance to do this before leaving the car! If you listen to the radio, you’ll eventually hear an ad for Royal Flush Casino and Aquarium. They also give you a website: and the code RADIOROB to enter next to the microphone. Do this to get the Radio Rob achievement.)

13. Enter EXIT in the door to escape the car!

    I must be blind because I canΓÇÖt see the number pad. IΓÇÖve looked at the in game hints and theyΓÇÖre not exactly clear on where it is, either. If itΓÇÖs supposed to be at the bottom of the page with the 4 ΓÇÿrevealΓÇÖ buttons, it isnΓÇÖt, and nor is it on the page with the cube.

    1. AppUnwrapper

      You need to scroll from the sides of the page. Otherwise youΓÇÖll still be controlling the cube part and wonΓÇÖt see it.

    IΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗m stuck in the underground library – have the map and the 3 postcards but when I put the pins on their locations nothing happens. Also canΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗t open the bottom drawer. Please help!

    1. AppUnwrapper

      Notice that one of the postcards is a little different than the other two. Let me know if you need more than that!

      1. Help me Circulous

        I can see that the birds face different directions and have tags (alpha beta gamma etc) but still lost.

        1. Help me Circulous

          Nevermind, I managed to get it. Was experiencing a bug where a pin stuck to side of map was messing things up. A reset sorted it 🙂 thanks

          Now the colours are killing me, IΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗m partially colourblind and canΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗t exactly tell the diff between some argh! 🙁

          1. Brayden

            The colors on the clue card are in the same order as the bottles, so you can use the letters there to help you figure it out

  3. Sarah Balfour

    Trying to figure out the connection between Γò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£ΓöÉ83170 9652 470Γò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗ and Γò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£ΓöÉliftΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗. It says Γò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£ΓöÉno admittanceΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗ on the door of the building with the numbers, is that relevantΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö¼┬¼? 12 letters in Γò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£ΓöÉno admittanceΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗ – 12 numbersΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö¼┬¼ but what about Γò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£ΓöÉliftΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗, thenΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö¼┬¼?

    Does anyone know how you open the golden birdcage in the shed? Super stuck :/

    1. AppUnwrapper

      You need to use the bird sounds from the website.

      1. Hayley

        Thank you! Didn’t cross my mind to check the website

  5. Jazz Woods

    How do you figure out the code to the safe in the shed?

      1. Jazz Woods

        Thank you!

  6. Miranda Brown

    Could anyone help with WrenΓÇÖs puzzle in the shed? Its the folder one and I havenΓÇÖt found an order for them yet

  7. Evelyn

    what is supposed to happen after you find the key to the robin picture? I put it in, turned it, left the close up of the picture, and then the key disappeared.

    1. Brayden

      If you don’t turn the key far enough it won’t unlock and if you leave the painting you might have to close the app and reopen it to get your key back…

  8. Help

    What to do after JayΓÇÖs log?

  9. Sarah

    Help! Where is the number pad to enter the codes??

  10. Kaydee

    Why can I not continue with the bird box I touch it and nothing happens helpppp
