Chapter 8:

You can watch my video for Chapter 8 or continue below for my step-by-step guide.

1. We’re now inside the Summer Temple. Milo runs off and seals the door behind him. Pick up the four ladder steps and the find the star shard in a hidden compartment at the foot of the ladder. Look at the book and take the phoenix key. And notice the mural of Tempus Island on the wall that’s missing a piece.

2. Place the four ladder steps on the ladder and climb up to the next room.

3. Use the phoenix key to unlock the chest and take the sun stone. Also, grab the stone scale, wheel, and star shard.

4. Leave the room and insert the wheel on the slot by the door. Turn it. The skylight will open and we can use the locket again!

5. Insert the sun stone in the hole on the left wall to reveal another star emblem.

6. Use the earth stone on the star to make the vines grow. Then climb up and go through the door to the next room.

7. Use the fire stone on both star emblems to get rid of the lava. Take the star shard and stone scale. Use the water stone on the left star emblem to douse out the fire on the chest. Then take the phoenix head from inside. Use the earth stone on the right star emblem to grow a vine. Climb up it and grab the villager figurine. Before leaving, use the earth stone to get rid of the bean stalk blocking the door.

8. Go back to the phoenix room and place the phoenix head on the statue. It will shoot a laser at the crystal, which will then open the skylight. Now you can use the locket!

9. Now, if you already melted the ice, don’t worry about it, but avoid doing so yet if you want to get the shears sooner. First use the fire stone on the star emblem to shut off the fire. Then use the wind stone to turn on the fan and blow the ice cube onto the switch. Examine the barrel and take the shears.

10. Now, use the fire stone to turn on the fire and melt the ice cube. Use the fire stone again to shut off the flames and then take the snake key. And last, use the earth stone to get rid of the vines, revealing a combination lock. Notice the clue on it.

10. Go back to the snake room and use the snake key to unlock the chest. Take the sun lens and gun powder. Also, use the shears to cut and take the rope.

11. Now, use the sun lens to look at the room. Notice there are suns around the room. Count them and then do it for each room. This is how many you find:

Snake = 5
Lion = 4
Phoenix = 3

12. Now back to the combination lock. Each number has animals under it. So do the math based on the suns.

Snake + Phoenix = 5 + 3 = 8
Snake = 5
Snake + Lion = 5 + 4 = 9
Phoenix + Lion = 3 + 4 = 7

So the passcode is 8597. Enter it in the wall lock to reveal a lever.

13. Pull the lever to make a cube mold appear. Then use the water stone to drop water into it. Use the wind stone to freeze it. Then pull the lever again to remove the mold.

14. Use the wind stone to blow the ice cube to the switch again. Now you can leave it there and access the barrel again. To make explosives, place the gunpowder and rope down. Then add the gunpowder to the barrel. Close the life and then add the rope as a wick.

15. Go back to the lion room and place the explosives near the cracked wall. Use the fire stone on the star emblem to light the fuse and wait for it to explode.

16. Use the water stone to put out the fire. Then use the earth stone to grow a new vine. Climb up and grab the pickaxe and star pendant.

17. Go back to the book and place the star pendant on the cover. Look through the book and grab the god tile. Read through the book about the War of the Gods and then take it with you. You can now look at it whenever you want.

18. Place the god tile on the wall with the rest. Then use the clues from the book to organize them in the right order. Then take the star shard and stone scale.

19. Go back to the snake room and add the three stone scales to the statue. Add all four star shards to the puzzle.

20. Now let’s solve the Star Shards puzzle. You need to use the colored gems from the locket to mix colors and make the shards the five different colors shown.

21. Take the moon stone that drops from the snake’s mouth.

22. Go back to the lion room. Place the moon stone in the hole on the right wall to reveal another star emblem.

23. Use the wind stone on the star emblem to freeze the lava. Then use the pickaxe to break off a piece that will land on the switch, revealing the board game. Also, take the Solaris figurine. Add both the villager figurine and Solaris figurine to the board game.

24. Now let’s solve the Solaris Board Game puzzle. You need to move all the colored blocks to the same colored buttons. It’s not too bad, but if you mess up there’s no undo button, so you have to start over.

25. Now you have access to another star emblem. Use the fire stone with it to open the lion’s head and go through to meet Milo again.

26. Talk to Milo. Looks like we have to fight another one of these annoying rune battles. This one’s not as bad as the last one, though. Once you’re done, head through the door after Milo.

27. Interact with Milo and let him talk. Then pick up the book and get ready for the Final Showdown. You need to use the book to figure out which magic stone to press. Watch the order in which he uses them and then find it in the book. If you take too long or get it wrong, he’ll attack you. You need to damage him 5 times to defeat him. After the first two stones glow, you should be able to choose the right one. It seems to be the same each time, so this is the order: Water, Fire, Earth, Wind, Earth.

28. Now, tap on each stone after it glows to fix it and collect it. Then tap all four stones in your locket to complete the game. Then watch the ending.

I’m not sure if there’s a way to save Milo?

And that’s the end of the game!

More coming soon!

    I see youΓÇÖre not there yet but please be sure to address the Star Shard puzzle. The colors donΓÇÖt make sense. Orange and Brown require each other so there is an impossible loop. I think itΓÇÖs an error in the game.

    1. Janet

      Hello, the color combinations listed on the stones are up to you to choose from. You do not necessarily have to do brown + white to get orange. You can do yellow and red instead. Hope that makes sense.

  2. Lynne

    How do I find this game, sacred stones? Can’t find it google play store. Can someone help me? I sent an email but have not rcvd an answer.

    1. Louise Smith

      Hi it’s part of a collection called AE mysteries by haiku games. There’s quite a few on the app for your enjoyment. Good luck.

      1. Lynne

        Thank you for getting back to me!!!!

    2. Maahin

      It is a part of AeMysteries

    3. Laura


      You must upload the game called
      AE Mysteries sacred stone is one of adventures you can fond in it

    4. Kels

      Not sure on on other devices. I play on ipad. The game app is called AE Mysteries.

  3. Shadowgrr

    OK. I finished it with no problems, unfortunately I forgot to take screnshots to help you with the guide in the last chapter. My question is
    -spoilers ahead-
    Is there anyway to save Milo? Because water stone has the ability of healing, Couldn’t we use it somehow before stopping the curse? Because I tried to. I know that Ollie finds a father figure in Siegfried, but what our father said that it might damage him if he loses that way both of his parents, I think it might turn him in a potential villain in the future. And the way it ends with the beam it is possible that there might be a second game in the future.

    1. AppUnwrapper

      One thing I donΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗t get is that if you melt the ice cube before getting the shears…. do you have to start over to get them? Or am I missing some way to make a new ice cube? I see I can drop water there, but no way to catch it and freeze it.

        1. Carla

          So I froze the cube with the water but there’s nothing inside? Any tips?

      1. Happy 2021!

        You can fill the metal cube and freeze it with wind

        1. Susan

          I am missing one of the stones for the puzzle under the snake. Can you tell me where they all were so I can see which one I am missing? It isn’t in the walkthrough unless I just didn’t see it. Thanks.

          1. Sue

            IΓÇÖm missing one also and canΓÇÖt go on with the game

          2. Helen

            Hidden panel in the floor at the foot of the ladder

            1. rogue

              thank you!

        2. Brian

          I can’t seem to find all five star shards. Can anyone help?

          1. Theadosia

            My game is missing the first star shard when you first go into the last temple. I’ve restarted that level 3 x now and it simply isn’t there. Apparently you need to solve that puzzle to get the snake to drop that last sphere and get to the last games to end the story. There are only 4 star shards I think. So I only have 3.

      2. Justice

        I have only four stones, any help where to find the last one..?

      3. Isabel

        Como has conseguido coger las tijeras??? Yo no consigo obtener nada para congelar el agua

      4. Karen

        You can use the lever on the left to get a new crate. Add water, then ice then get rid of the crate and push it over using air

    2. AppUnwrapper

      I see what you mean about trying to save Milo. The book did say that a combination of certain stones could heal. But you have to replay the whole game to try again, which IΓÇÖve no interest in doing.

      1. Poor_Milo

        After you click the stones, the screen shows skeleton/dead Milo. If you deliberately crash your game (I play on iPad) at this point, before the ending scene starts, it restarts just before, at the stone clicking. So this way you can test multiple combinations (24 in total) without replaying the whole game. That is assuming that the game is programmed to show skeleton-Milo 23 times, and alive Milo 1 time. Based on this, I tried all 24 combinations, and Milo died in every single one.

        However … I misclicked.once, resulting in 1 stone clicked twice and 1 stone not clicked at all. For example, Water Earth Earth Wind. (and no fire). It still set off the ending scene (with dead Milo).

        This could open up 2 options.

        1. You just need 4 clicks. Doesn’t matter which 4. I got the ending scene with 4x water, and 4x fire, and also 2×2 combi’s. The game is programmed to simply let Milo die 🙂 And the green beam opens up possibilities for a part 2.
        2. There IS some combo maybe possible, could be 4 of 1, 3 of 1 and 1 of another, 2 of one and 2 of another … the number of combinations is then increased dramatically. I haven’t played any of those yet except for 4x water and 2xwater + 2xwind.

        1. Heyhey

          Save Milo: Blue, Yellow, White and Red Stone. In my game she is still alive.

          1. Harrison

            Doesn’t work. You got a glitch. I used the order. Might be one of those urban rumors designed to mess with with you with what ifs and maybe there is no way! Maybe they did this to screw with the internet and get a conversation going! I followed the exact steps. So, maybe it’s canon and it’s controllable helplessness

      2. Cass

        For me, the final battle had a different order of attack. And every time I lost, it was a whole new order of attacks. I watched the order of the first to stones light up to figure out what to use.

    3. pauloaguia

      I have a feeling that not saving Milo is an important part of the sequel… It was one of the other gods that showed up when he perished…

  4. Kim Martin

    Can someone please help me, I only have 4 star shards. Where do I find the last one? Thank you.

    1. Latisha

      I hate this. This is the third game I’ve played that’s had something wrong. I’m one of the ones who can’t find the last shard except I only had 3. I’ve checked the places on the walkthrough 10 times and nothing. AE sucks.

      1. Bj campbell

        Same problem here. Did you find a fix?

      2. Karen

        Same with me. I only have 3 shards

  5. Mads

    Can anyone say where all 5 star shards are? I found 4, and that’s all that’s addressed here, but we need 5 to continue.

      1. Emma

        I only have 4 to and none in my puzzle when opened 😢

        1. AppUnwrapper

          ThatΓÇÖs really weird. I havenΓÇÖt seen an update since I solved that puzzle. I hope they didnΓÇÖt change it.

        2. Biaa

          Click under the ladder there is a compartment

          1. Brigitte

            Thank you! That’s the one I missed 🙂

          2. Yvonne

            Thank you IΓÇÖve been trying to find that for ages, itΓÇÖs well hidden!

        3. CJ Visser-Johnston

          In the main loon room under the ledge with the ladder somewhere I tapped around and found a fifth star shard

          1. Mags

            Thank you thank you thank you!!

      2. Kim Martin

        Could you possibly tell us where it is or maybe we need to do something to make it appear? Thank you.

        1. Kim Martin

          Nevermind, I found it. There is a compartment in front of the ladder, just click on it.

          1. Liesa

            Thank you!

      3. Biaa

        There is no any other gem

      4. Biaa

        Sorry to say but there is no 5th gem in the puzzle 🙁

    1. Rachael Hall

      You need to use the pickaxe on the panel underneath the ladder in the main room. Took me ages to find the last shard.

      1. AppUnwrapper

        You donΓÇÖt need the pickaxe for that. You can get it at the very start of the level. But IΓÇÖm not sure why some people are saying thereΓÇÖs no shard in the puzzle already when they start.

        1. Ana

          It doesn t work either way….

    2. Brianna

      Hi!! There is one under the mat that is next to the ladder! Hope this helps!

  6. Julie

    I missed getting the shears. How do I break the seal to get them

    1. AppUnwrapper

      YouΓÇÖll get another chance later.

  7. Caro

    I do not understand how can defeat psycho-Milo

    1. Jelinas

      When he floats over the ground preparing to attack you, look at the order in which the stones light up. The order will tell you which stone to use on the locket to counterattack. I found that I didn’t need to memorize all four stones; the first two were enough to point me to the right counterattack.

    2. Nora

      Take the book from the ground and then watch in which order the stones around Milo glow. If it is white-blue-red-yellow, you must press the yellow one on the locket. When the order is blue-yellow-white-red, you must press the blue one on the locket and so on.

  8. Brandi

    If I melted the ice cube before using the barrel, is there anything I can use to open the compartment again?

    1. AppUnwrapper

      Yeah youΓÇÖll get another chance later and just have to go back for the rope before making the explosive.

  9. Hovera

    What does the green light on the horizon at the end of game indicate? Is it another sacred stone?

    1. pauloaguia

      I think that’s a hint for a sequel, where we’ll have to face the other gods… When Milo died, the god of spirits showed up…

  10. Loading

    Can you please write down the directilns for the moving blocks puzzle? Is is really hard to follow the video for me

  11. Biaa

    I’ve couldn’t find 5th coloured gem
    Where is it em stuck

    1. Happy 2021!

      There is already another comment about that

  12. Rhonda

    Is anyone else having trouble with the barrel closeup? Nothing happens when I touch the gunpowder, so I’m stuck.

    1. Dft

      You must put the rope next o the barrel. You will find the rope stretched on two poles in the lava pit. Use the axe to cut the rope.

  13. Lily

    (Spoiler alert )Milo was about to do the same thing. Why we stopped him? Maybe he could stop the curse just like Aila did,we could give him a chance. With no rational reason Aila stopped him every time . Aila brought a curse with herself , caused many people die , stopped milo from ending this misery and became a hero!!! I don’t get it╬ô├½├¡Γò₧├åΓö£ΓöÉΓö£Γûô

    1. Ilera

      He needed the 4 stones and the locket to stop the curse and the locket only worked for Aila.

  14. Maddy


  15. Santyd07

    Porque querían salvar a Milo? Era un hijo de puta! Merecía morir como la tortuga!

    1. Alexandre

      Now, don’t exaggerate. He might be bad, but he wasn’t THAT bad. While he wanted to kill Aila and force everyone in Tempus Island to respect him, he indeed cared for his wife and the people of his village. He could have a chance of redemption. I’ll miss him.

  16. Alexandre

    The ending was somehow sad… Poor Milo… I know he became vengeful and evil because of his wife Mika’s death, manipulated the Gods and almost killed Aila, but there was still a chance for him to redeem himself. And more, he wasn’t that bad. He did it all to save his village and its people. He was caring. Now he’s dead and Ollie’s alone… Well, at least he can now be with his wife in the afterlife. But I’ll miss him. RIP Milo.

  17. Sandy

    Could not have done the star puzzle without your help. Thanks a bunch.

  18. Lucy

    I only have 3 shards I’ve reset level and still can’t find the 4th shard.

    Found it!

  19. Deborah

    I need help please!! In chapter 8, step 23 of ur tutorial, u are suppose to take the pickax and knock off a piece of the ice that will land on the square and bring up the board game for the figurines. I accidentally hit the home key in my iPad and the pickaxe disappeared. So now I canΓÇÖt play that scene and finish up the chapter! Please tell me thereΓÇÖs another way to bring up the board game for the figurines.

  20. Melissa Carol Clark

    So how do I get the snake to drop the stone

  21. Ronee

    I find a lot of times, the instructions are very unclear on what I’m supposed to do to solve a puzzle.

  22. Liz

    I canΓÇÖt find the last star shard. IΓÇÖve done all the tasks before the star shard puzzle. Help!

    1. Jennifer

      I’ve got 4. But the puzzle shows 5. And says it needs more

  23. Michelle

    I don’t have all 4 shards and I have looked at the walkthrough🥲PLEASE HELP

    1. Ali P

      ThereΓÇÖs one under a board on the right in the lion room. ThatΓÇÖs the one I hadnΓÇÖt found

  25. Paul Irving

    Level 8 of the sacred stones, when i enter the room below the snake to do the star shards puzzle, i go in with 4 shards, where do i get the 5th from?

    1. Krystal Wight

      In the lion room, did you check the compartment under the ladder on the right?

  26. Ida

    I don’t have 5 Star Shades. 4 collected..but the last one at the snake puzzle is not there. What can I so? I can’t Go on without the last one..

  27. Tamika Markos

    Would just to say that at the end of this chapter where it gives you the rest of the stones to use to attack Milo in which it kills him, they do not match what is in here.
    Unfortunately you will have to look at the order in which they light up and quickly follow that pattern from the book.
    Please don’t follow the order in this write up it could not be more wrong.

  28. Yash

    I found only 2 stone scales where’s the 3rd

  29. Sara Hensley

    I’m confused, I put all 4 star shards where they are suppose to go, but it is showing 5 spots. Where do I get the 5th star shard? Because it’s not letting me do the puzzle otherwise.

    1. Sarah

      Same here. Does anyone know?

  30. Tracy Carlaw

    Chapter 8 doesn’t match the walk through

    Can’t Wait For The Sequel

    1. Cass

      For me, the final battle had a different order of attack. And every time I lost, it was a whole new order of attacks. I watched the order of the first to stones light up to figure out what to use.

  37. Beth

    How do I get past the sequel at the end? I have tried so many combinations and the colour you need to press is constantly changing and he kills me. I have tried so many times but there’s just no solutuon. The tutorial video is showing a different sequence to what I get

  38. Nobody

    Regarding the puzzle where you modify the color of the five star shards to match the pedestals, here’s an easy step by step:
    1: Place two colorless shards in
    2: Use the Red button
    3: Take one red one out, blue another blank one in
    4: Use the White button twice
    5: Remove both white shards and insert the remaining two colorless shards
    6: Use the Yellow button once
    7: Remove both of those shards and insert a yellow and white shard
    8: Use the Red button once
    9: Remove those two shards and place all three remaining shards [Yellow, White, and Red]
    10: Use the Blue button once
    11: Move shards to appropriate pedestals.

    Hope that helps.

    1. Nobody

      (3: *PUT another blank one in.)

      1. Claire

        The sequel to this game is legend of the time stones

  39. Millie

    I made a mistake in the falcon room where I melted the block of ice before using it as a weight to push the button down. Is there anything I can do or a simple flaw in the game where I’m perpetually stuck?

    1. Marina

      Keep playing it, eventually you will find a lever in which you can lift a cube-like wall and fill it with water and freeze it, so you can push the button
