But magic shows are full of surprises. When something goes wrong, what secrets will be revealed? This walkthrough guide should help you if you get stuck on any of the puzzles in Chapter 4 of Vanishing Act. Feel free to ask for extra help in the comments section.

Chapter 4:

You can watch my video for Chapter 4 or continue below for my step-by-step guide:

1. We’re meeting Allie at Kate and Allie’s grandparents’ cabin. Text her to see where she is and then look around on your own.

2. Open the car door and look inside. Press the button to the left of the steering wheel to open the glove compartment and get the flashlight. Also, find the bobby pin.

3. Use the bobby pin to unlock the front door of the cabin and head inside.

4. It’s too dark to see. Use the flashlight to find the light switch. Try to turn on the lights. No good! We’re stuck with the flashlight for now.

5. Find the fire poker in front of the fireplace and the lighter on the side table. We need to find wood so we can make a fire.

6. Go outside and use the fire poker to open the garbage bin. Take the hedge clippers and hatchet from inside.

7. Use the hedge clippers to clear the shrub and then use the hatchet to chop the old canoe into firewood.

8. Go back inside and place the firewood in the fireplace. Use the lighter to light a fire.

9. Now we have a little more light. The two things to pay attention to are the lines drawn on the door frame and the mail on the table. Look through the mail and then look at the photo album.

10. When you close the photo album, Allie shows up. When she’s done talking, you can talk to her again for some extra dialogue. Then, go outside and find the fuse box. We need to use the information from the doorframe together with the photo album to figure out what number each sticker on the fuse box represents. Basically, find the sticker on the doorframe and note down whether it’s Kate or Allie and the year. Then find the photo that matches that year and that sibling and note down the number on it. It goes:

Watermelon = K ’00 = 6
Lips = K ’03 = 2
Heart = A ’98 = 4
Fire = A ’01 = 9
Smilie = K ’99 = 0
Skull = A ’02 = 8

So enter 624908 to unlock the fuse box. Then take a look inside. It’s a puzzle!

11. Let’s solve the Fuse Box Puzzle. Drag the tiles to rearrange them and create a continuous path from the bottom green circuit to the one on the right. All circuit pieces must be used. You can use my video if you’re stuck.

12. The power is back on, so head back inside and talk to Allie. It turns out she’s been picking pockets for two guys called Charlie and Elias. Let’s try to find out more about them. Open Allie’s bag and grab Murphy’s ID, the hour clock hand, and Allie’s keys. Also, notice the drawer handle is missing and there’s a charger for a laptop.

13. Use the keys to unlock the door to the right and then head up the stairs to the attic.

14. Grab the drawer knob, second hand and minute hand. Then go back downstairs.

15. Tap on Allie’s bag again and replace the drawer knob. Open the drawer and take the wheel.

16. Go back upstairs and place the wheel on the hand truck.

17. Use the hand truck to move the furniture away from the window. Then use the poker to remove the planks from the window. Also, you can open the closet and see a rose in there. Open the window and look through.

18. Use Allie’s car keys to turn on the car and the headlights will create a shadow that resembles a clock shape. Allie will go somewhere else for more privacy.

19. Go back downstairs and put all three clock hands on the big clock. Then set it to match what you saw outside. The hour hand should be on 8, the minute hand on 3, and the second hand on 10. Then take Allie’s journal from inside.

20. Read Allie’s journal. It turns out that she’s been lying to Kate and this wasn’t the last job she’s doing for Charlie.

21. Allie comes back inside. She asks you to hide in the attic, so do so. Then look out the window. Charlie and Elias take Allie with them because she didn’t have Murphy’s ID. Let’s go rescue her!

22. Go back outside and use Allie’s keys to access her car. Go inside and grab her laptop and the step ladder.

23. Go back inside. Kate will automatically charge the laptop. We need a passcode. The laptop gives us a hint — Magic Quest high score.

24. Go upstairs and place the step ladder down. Climb up and open the treehouse box. Grab the blacklight bulb and the game controller from inside.

25. Screw the bulb into the chandelier in middle of the room. Glowing ink lights up all around the room! There’s two arrows pointing under the sleeping bag, so look under it. Use the poker to remove the floor planks and then take the locked box out. We need to figure out how to open it.

26. Look at Allie’s journal again under the black light. The first four pages have clues that work with the clues around the room to unlock the locked box.

27. The first page has a bear and rose on it. So find those two objects in the room and combine their symbols to make the first shape on the locked box.

28. The second page has a wizard and a cat. So find those two objects and combine their symbols for the second shape on the locked box.

29. The third page has a rabbit, bear and cat. You know the drill by now.

30. And the fourth page has a fish and a deer. Again, you know what to do.

31. Now we have all four shapes. Unlock the box and take the cabinet key and game cartridge from inside.

32. Go back downstairs and use the key to open the cabinet. Take the game console from inside.

33. Go back upstairs and place the game console by the TV. Add the game controller and cartridge. Now we need to play Magic Quest!

34. To solve the Video Game Puzzle, get the witch to the red door to win. The witch must use the big key to unlock the door and complete the level. Use the various items to navigate the level. The witch can only carry one item at a time. Use the left/right arrows to move and the A button to interact. If you get stuck, press the reset button in the lower left corner of the screen — and you can also watch my video.

35. Tap a few times to enter Kate’s score into the leaderboard.

36. Go back downstairs to the laptop and enter the high score — 16850 — as the passcode. Then read through Allie’s texts and emails.

37. Kate will call Murphy to ask for help and that’s the end of the chapter.

And that’s the end of Chapter 4! Click here to continue to Chapter 5 or choose a chapter below.

    What about the last puzzle in chapter 4? I am having problems with that.

  2. Ingrid

    Finiiiiiished the whole game today!
    Must say this one was super easy! Or me so excellent 😂 So unfortunately I already finished it so curious about the bonus game 🙏

    Sorry for writing about it here, just wanted to share the good news that have already finished the Vanishing Act 😊

    1. Ingrid

      Oh no! I’ve just finished the bonus chapter as well! It was only one chapter! So sad! Already finished the whole game. Thank you very much for the experience though dear creators and all the hard work you put into it.

  3. AE addict

    I’m at the point where I’m yo go outside and use the keys on Allie’s car, but the car isn’t there!

  4. Betty

    I’m looking for Allys car as well. It’s not there?

    1. AppUnwrapper

      I’m gonna have a heart attack if they changed stuff between the time I made my walkthrough and the game going free.

    2. Ky

      Same. Her car isn’t there so I don’t know what to do now

  5. Marissa

    I had the glitch where Allie’s car wasn’t there too. I didn’t look at rhe coffee table the first time I played the level, I just put the code in to unlock the power circuits.

    I restarted rhe level and looked at the table and this time her car was there when I needed it.

  6. Danny

    As far as sympathy goes I have none for Allie (You take your wedding ring, Kate!) The only time I felt sorry for Allie was going through the photo album and realizing she may have stopped trying when it was obvious Kate would crush her at everything.

    Loved the movements in the wizard game :3 ushi ushi!

  7. Murphy

    I have been following this amazing walkthrough for another one if Detective Kate’s adventures but regardless I’m stuck.

    I’m at the part when according to the walkthrough I have to go outside and use Ally’s keys on her car, but her car is nowhere to be seen.

    Any help? I see I’m not the only one with this issue, so it must not be some problem with my game or my phone, but is it a bug?

  8. Lora

    Mine has a glitch of Allie standing in the doorway of the cabin the entire time, even when the actual Allie is in the living room. Made me giggle a bit.
