Chapter 1, Echo Bay Fuel Shop:

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

1. Detective Kate Gray is driving to Echo Bay to meet up with an old friend. She gets a call from Murphy and then another from Darius, the friend she’s meeting. He tells her that five women have now gone missing from the Echo Bay area over the last 10 years. He wants her help because he thinks it could be a serial killer. Once you get there, pick up the brush from the ground and the keypad button from the garbage. Talk to Mila, the witness. She tells you that a woman locked herself in the bathroom two hours ago and never came out.

2. Tap the garage keypad and replace the missing key. We still need to figure out the code. Notice the neon sign above. There are four letters that flicker — CYEO. If you enter those on the keypad, you get 1925. Do so to unlock the garage.

3. Head inside. Pick up the step ladder. Grab the the fuse from inside the blue cabinet. Also, notice the padlock on the closet.

4. Let’s solve the Padlock Puzzle. You need to move the colored balls to their matching colored gears. Press a gear to rotate it. When the empty slot is aligned with a bridge, press the ball on the other side to move it across. You can use my video if you need help.

5. Grab the spare keys from the closet. Then press the back button to head back out.

6. Use the spare keys to unlock the bathroom. There’s a camera flash! Murphy leaves to investigate. Enter the bathroom.

7. Grab the rag. Attach the brush to the handle to get a broom. Also, open the stall and put down the toilet seat lid so you can get the uncharged phone.

8. Use the step ladder to reach the torn piece of cloth and wallet. Take the driver’s license and both that and the cloth will be recorded as evidence. Also look at the scrap of paper in the wallet with numbers on it and the two credit cards. Also, use the broom to clean up the broken glass and get the small key. And last, use the rag in the sink to dampen it.

9. Go back outside. Tap on the car door. It’s all covered in dirt. Use the damp rag to clean it off. You need to swipe it around. We need to figure out the order to press the numbered buttons. The answer is on the paper with the numbers. There are three sets of five digits. Two of them have a 0, so it can’t be them. That means it’s 83516. So press 7-8, 3-4, 5-6, 1-2, 5-6. The door will open.

10. Look inside the car door. Grab the USB cable and plug it into the USB port. Plug in the phone. It needs to charge, so leave it for now. Use the small key to unlock the glove compartment and take the fuse. Also, press the button to unlock the trunk.

11. Leave the car and grab the extension cord from the trunk. Murphy comes back and says the cameras seem to have been tampered with.

12. Go back inside. Use the extension cord with the autolift to plug it in. Then press the button to lower the car. Grab the duct tape and screwdriver from the cork board on the wall behind the car. Also, notice the calendar on the wall. It says the garage is closed this week.

13. Go back to the car and use the screwdriver to open the panel to the left of the glove compartment. Take the fuse.

14. Go back to the garage. Use the screwdriver to open the fuse box next to the closet. Add the three fuses. Now let’s solve the Fuse Puzzle. Move each colored spark onto its matching colored slot. Select a spark and then press a directional arrow to move it. You can watch my video if you need help.

15. The electricity is now on in the security office. Tap on the computer monitor and use the duct tape to patch up the wire. Now we can access the security footage! We need to pinpoint the exact date and time the missing woman, Ava McWilliam, got to the gas station.

16. Go back to the car. Her phone is charged up now, so take it.

17. Look at the phone using the little magnifying glass next to it. Read through her texts from Ryan. They start at the bottom at 6:38 PM and he says that tomorrow is Tuesday, which means the day she went missing is Monday. The next text is at 6:45 PM and he asks her to grab some salsa for him. We can assume he’s talking about the gas station. So, together with the calendar, we can surmise that she was at the gas station at 6:45 PM on Monday, March 8, 2021.

18. Go back to the computer and enter 03 as the month, 08 as the day, 2021 as the year, 18 as the hour, 45 as the minute, and then search to see her leave her car, enter enter leave the gas station, enter the bathroom and then never come out. Then a suspect arrives on the third camera. He must have broken into the bathroom and abducted her!

19. Leave the garage and talk to Darius to fill him in. The local cops arrive, so Kate leaves to check into her hotel.

20. Now we’re driving to the hotel as Kate. A stranger shoots at her and crashes her car, then kidnaps her.

And that’s the end of Chapter 1! Click here to continue to Chapter 2 or choose a chapter below.

    This is probably pretty obvious, but does anyone know why the calendar mentioned which week the station was closed or why the victim could still enter the store when it was supposed to be closed?

    1. AppUnwrapper

      Honestly, it confused me too. I tried the week before first because I though maybe I misunderstood something and sheΓÇÖs been missing for a whole week already? I could understand if they closed the place after the crime, but it wasnΓÇÖt clear that thatΓÇÖs what was being shown in the calendar, at least to me.

      1. Poppy

        Yeah, thanks. I guess they probably just messed up the story there.

        1. Sofia

          The gas station employee said the garage was closed and the repair guy away, and he had the key, which is why Kate had to open it by herself. But this was never mentioned again

        2. Jan

          So still can’t get the right date & time on security camera puzzle, help!

          1. Jodi

            You have to us military time so its 18:45

      2. Haley

        It’s actually Darius not Murphy.

    2. Wilson

      If you tapped the calendar in the closeup kate says ΓÇ£looks like the garage will be open again next weekΓÇ¥ so that tells you youre currently in the closed week

      1. AppUnwrapper

        Yeah the problem is it doesnΓÇÖt make sense that the victim was there on a day it was closed. ItΓÇÖs a confusing clue.

        1. pia

          No it makes sense! The garage was closed but the gas station was still open- the victim came in to use the gas station. Kate needed access to the garage because that’s where they had an extra set of bathroom keys as well as the security footage.

    3. Queen Lacra

      I think just the garage was closed, not the whole station.

    4. Rae

      Only the Mechanic Shop was closed, not the gas station.

  2. …………….LD

    I made it to chapter 2 and I got stuck so can you plz do chapter 2 also the calendar really confused me

    1. AppUnwrapper

      ItΓÇÖs in progress!

    2. Alex

      I got stuck on chapter two as well. Was it on the room with the animal trophies? ThatΓÇÖs where IΓÇÖm stuck and I canΓÇÖt figure out what the puzzle is supposed to be. I looked at the photo in the evidence book and it seems my screen is cropped a little bit (IΓÇÖm on an ipad) so that might be the problem

  3. leesa

    IΓÇÖm getting a major glitch in chapter 7 with the newspapers, have you gotten it too? CanΓÇÖt move on without it!

  4. TPC_XIV

    Just finished Chapter 3. As for the calender. Look at her phone and there is a message about what day tomorrow is. Use this to figure out the actual date then input her arrival time into the CCTV

  5. Winnie

    Not sure if this is just me, but IΓÇÖm stuck on chapter 7 because I canΓÇÖt flip through the newspapers (the screen freezes). When I exit the level and come back, itΓÇÖs glitched and I canΓÇÖt progress because the hint (ΓÇ£KeepsakesΓÇ¥) says I have to flip through it to get an item. Anyone else have this problem?

    1. leesa

      Yes! So frustrating since you canΓÇÖt move on without it

  6. Rebecca

    I got through to the pinball machine on chapter 7 but itΓÇÖs so hard! I canΓÇÖt seem to figure it out.

    1. AppUnwrapper

      Well, the game moved on with that solution and thereΓÇÖs no way for me to go back. If anyone wants to send me a photo of a better solution, IΓÇÖll add it.

  7. Jennifer

    I am in chapter 8 and canΓÇÖt figure out the rubikΓÇÖs cube and car colour. There are 6 cars and only 5 lights for the padlock locker.

    1. Loni

      Same here! Cannot figure it out. Patiently waiting for help!

    2. Sasha

      Im not sure if im too late.

      Check the no and the color of the car from first to last. Then u check the direction of the no of car in the rubic cube from the first to last

      1. Eisjh

        Can you explain this better please? Still can’t work it out

  8. Sam

    Step 6 and 11 – the name of the guy in the game is Darius. Murphy is the cop pining for you back home. Don’t blame you, most of the characters have the personality of a cardboard cutout…

    1. Pupok

      Murphy is a buffoon. He clearly knows Kate only tolerates his aggressive mediocrity out of pity yet he persists on imposing himself on her. ItΓÇÖs embarrassing.

  9. Washie

    How do I download the app.

  10. Emma

    Where do you find her phone?

  11. Sofia

    IΓÇÖm on chapter 5 and canΓÇÖt solve the code to the laptop. I tried putting in the colors and number of columns for each color from the periodic table, but that does not seem to be it. Help please!

    1. Ida

      I did that too! But itΓÇÖs the ΓÇ£squaresΓÇ¥ around the office you need to count. First itΓÇÖs the blue certificates on the wall. Second is green squares on the box on the chair. Third is black squares under the whiteboard. Forth is red squares on the Police department sign on the wall

      Blue 2
      Green 6
      Black 5
      Red 4

    2. Sofia

      Realized I was on the wrong track and then tried with the other qudrants, which worked… hate those type of nonsensical clues

  12. Anne

    Where can I download this new story? 🙂

  13. Amber

    Oh my god. Match 8th is my birthday!

  14. Jill

    Chapter 1: Not sure why but I never get the ΓÇ£echo camΓÇ¥ replay even though I used 03/08/2021 at 18:45. It wont do anything even after hitting the search. I have uninstalled and reinstalled three times and it gets stuck every time in this spot. Help!

    1. Karla

      Same here 🙁

    2. Kellie

      Ugh, me too.

    3. Lisa

      Me too!! Please help I even restarted the chapter and used a hint

  15. Kathy

    Why canΓÇÖt I find this in the App Store? There are only a million Adventure Escape Mystery games in there. Any help greatly appreciated Appunwrapper. Thanks and oh yes Happy New Year.

    1. Poetniknowit

      Download the adventure escape app that has multiple games in it

  16. Poetniknowit

    Ok guys this person forgot to say that the hour is in MILITARY TIME.

    Everything above is right. March 3 2021. Not 645 but 1845. You’re welcome lol!

  17. Kelsey Westbrook

    Is it weird that I’m trying to figure out why the garage code is 1925? ╬ô├½├¡Γò₧├åΓö£ΓöÉΓö¼Γò£

  18. Bill

    Is there any way to go back a chapter? I forgot to pick up an item.

  19. Reina

  20. LUCY

    Date and time won’t work on mine either
