    In chapter 3, is there a trick to getting the left side of the scroll to move the moons? I can move the pink moons but not the green ones. It looks like there are a ton of bugs in this game so IΓÇÖm wondering if this is a problem with the game or if IΓÇÖm missing something. Thanks!

      The left and right dials work the same way, so if you can get one working and not the other, that does sound like a bug.

      It took me a long time to get the blank screen to activate the diagrams on the blank side of the screen to see where the moons go – I was trying to do it blindly, using the back side for clues. It doesnΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗t work. Anyway, after many tries, staying in the chapter and going back to the chapter heading and going from there, they showed up. No idea why or how. If thatΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗s not your problem, you could try leaving the one you have correct, and just very slowly turn the other dial until the moons lock into place. HTH

    IΓÇÖm in chapter 3 and I cannot get the left side of the mini camera control to work. Right toggles around fine, but no way to move forward. And this game doesnΓÇÖt resume where you left off; you have to keep starting over from the start of the chapter each time. A bit frustrating!

    I canΓÇÖt get the left metal ball in Chapter 4 to work on the Infinity puzzle :(. Must be a bug

    1. Judy

      Yes it is a bug, I had to delete the game and reinstall it from the AppStore with the update

    Not really a question but why have you decided to transfer to videos…I liked you for your word tutorials!!

    In chapter 4 on top of the device (near the aqua colored bolts/screws/buttons) I accidentally moved both sliders to the end of the screen. Now I canΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗t control them anymore because in is right under the mini camera and screw driver and the other one right under the inventory. Anyone a solution for that…?

      I had the same problem. I had to go to the Chapter menu and restarted Chapter 4.

      1. Kimberly

        I just realized I asked the same question – IΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗ll restart 4

    I canΓÇÖt get the scissors to drop to cut open the box. How embarrassing! I am using an iPad. What is the gesture to drop the stupid scissors?

    1. AppUnwrapper

      You just drag them from your inventory to the spot. YouΓÇÖll see them get highlighted when youΓÇÖre over the right spot.

      1. SMD711

        Thank you. I was tapping on them to examine them not dragging and dropping. I follow you and read all your reviews. You are awesome!

    Can’t get white spots to align to open the side piece, in chapter 1

    I canΓÇÖt get the planets to join up in Chapter 7. I have watched the walkthrough and seem to have done everything correctly with the numbers, but I donΓÇÖt get the track joining the planets together. Any ideas?

    1. Drue

      Two of the planet symbols look similar. Try retracing your steps and check each one.

    IΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗m stuck in chapter 4. Can anyone help? ItΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗s the inside puzzle with two regular brass screws and two sliders. I pushed the slider pieces out to the end of their tracks, and now theyΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗re covered up by the endoscope and the weird key, and I canΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗t access them – all I do is activate the items. IΓò¼├┤Γö£├ºΓö£├╗m going Aaarghcrazy, so if you can help it would be fantastic.

    In Chapter 1…I’ve done EVERYTHING exactly the same as your video yet I cant match up the white dots on the left side of the printer??? When I line them up, they don’t lock into place, they quickly swing back to their original spot. No problem with the right side of printer….installed battery and powered up….then picked up the “M”.
    Please help….I noticed another comment with this same issue.

    1. Grey

      I had the same problem until I spun both of them at the same time. Well, actually I spun one, then held it in place while I spun the second with my other hand.

  11. Prima

    I’m playing on a laptop using a mouse, so not an option for me.
    Appreciate your trying to help. 🙂

    I normally donΓÇÖt like to play games when I have to go back and forth to get help like yours, but your walkthrough was as good if not better than the game itself. Thanks!

    I’m playing chapter 7. I figured put everything up through placing the different parts of the machine and attaching the 4 cables, at which point the green button relit but could not be pressed. Since I had walked away for a while between getting all the pieces together and trying to press the button, I tried replaying the level again. this time the green button could be pressed but the radar eye in the center did not pop out in the 2nd animation sequence. I shut down the game completely, restarted it, and replayed the chapter. Still the same problem. I’m guessing from the comments that hou created this walk through in 2021 and it’s now 2023. Perhaps the developer has changed the game again, or perhaps they haven’t kept up with iOS updates. Could you please tryin playing this level again on iPad and see if y9u can get it to work?
