Shivers 2 walkthrough, final version, by Jeff Allred, email@example.com This document copyright 2001, Jeff Allred Welcome to Cyclone... Steeped in ancient Native American mysticism, the isolated Arizona town was to be the backdrop for aspiring rock band Trip Cyclone's first batch music of videos, but something went extremely awry when the band members and townspeople began disappearing inexplicably. Use your puzzle-solving skills and piece together clues scattered about the town to unearth Cyclone's dark secrets. Intro, Cyclone Motel: Click on Charles Spencer to speak with him. After hassling you about your arrival, he'll show you a mysterious note that's been left for you. Read the note then click on it again to exit the close-up. Charles now reluctantly offers you a room, so give him your $40 then take your change from the counter. You'll now automatically retire to your room where you'll fall asleep and see the dream sequence. Pay attention here, a major plot point is revealed. You may want to turn the captions on from the configuration menu in order to understand the less-intelligible dialogue. Room 5, Cyclone Motel: Go to the phone, lift the receiver and press the green button. Follow the instructions to hear the two messages left by Wendy. If you call the number she gives you you'll find that it's been disconnected. If you want, turn on the bedside radio and listen to the pre-set channels to learn more about the area. Go to your trunk and unlock it with the key from your inventory. Glance through the Trip Cyclone material you find inside. Take the videocassette from the trunk and play it in the room's VCR. The "Trip Cyclone" video reveals the code numbers for each band member's name. Time now to investigate the rest of the motel. Room 6, Cyclone Motel: It seems that Stewart Warensky, Trip Cyclone's cameraman, occupied this room. Grab the crowbar from the floor near the wastebasket. Search the rest of the room then head back to the motel office. Motel Office: Go behind the desk and look at the messaging unit. Press the white buttons to listen to Charles' messages. Read the insurance agent's letter from the letter holder. Search the drawers below the counter. Of particular interest is Charles' arrowhead key, which you'll want to take with you. Pick up the mound of chewed gum from the ashtray sitting on the desk. Turn to face the mail cubbies. In room 6's box is a letter for Stewart from Pearl Larson. Now go to the TV. In order to view it safely, you need to cover the red light in the corner of the screen with a piece of chewed gum. Watch all eight music videos, many of them contain important clues. If you can't get all of them to play now, try again later. Remember, the videos can be viewed from any TV in town as long as the red light is covered. Also, once you've seen a particular video, you can use the flashback menu to watch it again. Now ring the desk bell to open the jack-in-the-box kachina. You'll get a message from Darkcloud in which he explains a bit about the Bahos. -The Bahos: Darkcloud has hidden these ceremonial prayer sticks in assorted locations about the town. In order to rescue your friends, you must return all twelve Bahos separately to an altar room at Devil's Mouth Canyon. When you find a Bahos, pay attention to the symbol found with it, usually somewhere on or near the accompanying kachina doll. Once you pick up a Bahos, act quickly because your life essence will be drained while you carry it. Before taking the first Bahos, make a trip to Devil's Mouth Canyon to activate it on the map. This will allow you to jump there quickly, reducing carrying time and conserving life essence. Devil's Mouth Canyon: On your way to the canyon, Norah Wharton will appear and urge you to go back for the Bahos. Ignore her for now. When you arrive at the canyon, enter the first, blue-gray cave area. You may want to explore the rest of the caves to learn the layout, just be sure to save your game first. Check the map to make sure Devil's Mouth has been highlighted then jump back to the motel. Around this point, you'll probably start receiving creepy phone calls from Darkcloud. You can either answer them yourself or, if you like, let him leave a message. Take note of the 'ceremony' symbol on the jack-in-the box kachina. Pick up the Bahos and return to the canyon. Inside, you'll need to locate the matching petroglyph for your Bahos. Now is an excellent time to save your game because the petroglyphs will attack once you enter the inner caves. What I suggest is restoring your game after you find the correct petroglyph then going directly to its location to prevent any unnecessary life essence loss. When you find the 'ceremony' petroglyph, click on it. -Petroglyph Puzzles: You'll now have to solve a puzzle in order to awaken the Bahos. The goal is to fit all the shapes inside the sacred symbol. Click the shapes to rotate them then click and drag to place them. Take your time; the life-draining effect of the Bahos will be suspended while you work on the puzzle. If you become stumped, here are just a few of the possible solutions: When you've solved the puzzle, hurry to the stairs at the back of the caves. On the second floor, turn left and approach the stone structure. Slide open the brown slab then spin the levitating skull to open the door to the Kiva room. Enter the circular Kiva and make your way left, to the altar. Place the Bahos in its corresponding 'ceremony' altar slot. Accidentally putting the Bahos in another slot means losing it and having to go fetch it again. You'll notice that when you complete the task, a portion of your life essence will be restored. If you ever find yourself dangerously low on life essence, search the petroglyph caves for spiral symbols. Clicking these symbols will restore a small amount of life, but each one can only be used once. As you leave the cave, Norah will pay you another visit and warn that you must eventually unmask Darkcloud's identity. For the next Bahos, go to the barbershop. Barbershop: The "Candy Cane Dragon" video gives mention of the barber pole so check the base to find an encoded message, which you'll be able to decipher later. Before you can enter the shop, you'll need to solve a door puzzle. -Door Puzzles: Fortunately, there are only two of these in the game. The aim here is to align the tiles to form the symbol shown in the corners of the puzzle. Click the gears to move the tiles back and forth. The position of the tiles will differ each time you begin the puzzle, so if you get stuck, exit and try again. As a last resort to this or any other puzzle in the game, there's a cheat option available in the configuration menu, but you'll sacrifice points for using it. Inside the shop, listen to Ivan Spencer's messages. Examine the pieces of evidence scattered around the shop. Check the TV for the 9th music video, "Know Your Enemy," which should now be in rotation among the others. Turn the chair around to discover another kachina doll and to hear a clue about the next puzzle. Go to the sink and turn the left handle. Wait until Gogyeng descends into the sink then click the sink basin to begin the spider puzzle. -Spider Puzzle: The objective of this puzzle is to guide Gogyeng to her nest. Treading over spaces highlighted with color will cause the board to change. As Darkcloud's message points out, Gogyeng is afraid of water, so if you come to a dead end you'll have to start over. Walking over the four corner switches will remove their corresponding barriers. Aim for hitting the switches in this order: green, red, blue, yellow. If you get stuck, click on the arrow to restart. Take the 'spider' Bahos to Devil's Mouth Canyon and solve the corresponding petroglyph puzzle. After placing the Bahos in the Kiva, go to the library. Cyclone Library & Museum: Start here by examining everything on the upper level. The book "Symbols and Masks" can be found in the left-most bookcase. Now go downstairs do the lower level. In between the stacks, you'll see a light-colored book sitting on the right. When you try to take the book, one of the shelves will topple and Norah will appear. Pick up "The Ianyi Stone" from the floor where Norah drops it. Read through the book to learn more about Ianyi. Next, go to the conference room door. Insert Charles' arrowhead key in its slot. As you can see, you'll need the three other keys plus a door combination before you can access the room. If you go to the shadowy space to the right of the door, you'll find a peephole looking into the conference room. Leave the library now and head for the cafe. Cyclone Cafe: As you enter, turn to the framed photos on the left wall. Look closely at the photo of Norah and Pearl. Turn the photo around and lift up the loose corner to find a clue left by Olivia, which will come in handy later. Next, go to the menus sitting on the counter. Open the right-most menu and grab the disk from inside. Also, take the rose from the vase. In the kitchen, take the flamingo key hanging next to the doorway. Get the slip of paper from the kachina doll sitting atop the grill. In the back room, listen to Pearl's messages on the messaging unit. Glance through the ledger. On the second page is an important note from Burt Thompson. Open the right-hand desk drawer and examine Stewart's photos. Leave the cafe and cross the road to Pearl's house. Pearl's House: Use the flamingo key to unlock the door. In the kitchen, find Wendy's notebook in the oven. The notebook contains, among other notable information, the key to deciphering the barber pole note. To translate the number-encoded sections of the notebook, use this key: 5-A, 6-B, 7-C, 8-D, 9-E, 10-F, 11-G, 12-H, 13-I, 14-J, 15-K, 16-L, 17-M, 18-N, 19-O, 20-P, 21-Q, 22-R, 23-S, 24-T, 25-U, 26-V, 1-W, 2-X, 3-Y, 4-Z. Search the bedroom then go downstairs to the basement. Open Dave's suitcase and take the cassette player. The bat kachina hanging in the corner contains the next puzzle. -Bat Puzzle: The object is to munch every beetle on the board, ending with the green one. If you run into trouble, here's the solution. First, number the beetles from left to right beginning at the top. Now eat the beetles in this order: 15, 19, 22, 16, 12, 11, 8, 7, 4, 2, 1, 5, 3, 6, 9, 17, 20, 24, 23, 21, 13, 18, 10, 14. Take the 'bird' Bahos to the Kiva. As you leave Devil's Mouth Canyon, Norah appears with another warning that you must soon choose your enemy. Next, make your way to the sheriff's department. Cyclone Sheriff's Department: Read the missing person reports in the basket on the desk. Notice the evidence photo of the spilled dye footprints at the barbershop. Listen to Sheriff Andrew Washington's messages. Examine the material posted on the bulletin board. At the filing cabinet, open the G-M drawer and read the accident report. The radio next to the cabinet has obviously been sabotaged, but feel free to try it anyway. Go through the swinging doors to the back room. There, click the right-hand horn on the steer skull and grab the key you find. In the main office, look at the jail door for a number. Now go to the desk and use the key from the steer skull to unlock the top right-hand drawer. Read through Andrew's notebook then flip to the page number you saw on the jail door. Use the combination at the bottom of the page to open the jail cell. As you'll find, there's not a whole lot to see in there just yet. Return to the back room and click on the big kachina doll seated at the cards table to begin the next puzzle. -Cards Puzzle: Press the green button to begin. Now place the nine cards on the table. The cards will be turned over and shifted, and you'll be asked to name the correct position of each card. If your memory isn't up to this puzzle, try writing down the card placements and making notes to indicate where switches are made. By solving the cards puzzle, you'll be rewarded with the 'star' Bahos. Return it to the Kiva then go to the cemetery. Cyclone Cemetery: First, make your way to the angel monument. If you watched the "Alone Inside" video, you should already know what to do here. Place the rose at the angel's feet then press its toes in order from left to right to open a hidden compartment. Remove the CD case from the compartment. Take the rod from inside then click on the CD insert to examine the diagram more closely. Now go to Norah's mausoleum at the back of the cemetery, where another puzzle awaits. -Mausoleum Puzzle: You need to arrange the tiles to form a specific design. Once you've selected a tile, click it again to rotate it. Select two tiles to switch their positions. You can deselect a tile by clicking on the background. The note from the framed photo at the cafe reveals the completed design. When you finish the puzzle, a door will open at the foot of the mausoleum. Enter the secret tomb and read the epitaph. When you've finished at the cemetery, head for the warehouse. Cyclone Storage Facility: A combination lock prevents you from entering the warehouse. Place the missing rod in its slot then enter the combination from the CD case insert. Inside the warehouse, find a cassette hidden in Lyle's cymbals. Insert the cassette in your portable player to free up inventory space. Look for Olivia's notebook under a table in the recording area. Clicking on the barrels stacked at the far end of the warehouse will result in your losing life essence. In the driver's seat of Trip Cyclone's van sits another kachina doll. The puzzle belonging to this kachina can be found in one of the crates sitting near the van. -Crate Puzzle: Move the colored marbles to their corresponding spaces in 38 moves. The starred spaces are free and don't count as a move. This is a tough one, so don't feel guilty if you need to cheat. Here's the solution. Number the spaces from left to right, starting with the top row. Now follow this list of moves: 18-4, 26-28, 24-22, 32-46, 20- 17, 40-19, 34-20, 38-40, 17-38, 30-33, 10-31, 12-10, 19-17, 13-11, 6-13, 4-7, 2-6, 33-12, 41-27, 27-26, 42-41, 28-49, 14-42, 7-14, 31-34, 37-30, 30-32, 44-37, 46-43, 48-44, 49-48, 11-18, 16-30, 9-23, 23-24, 8-9, 22-1, 1-2, 36-8, 17-16, 43-36. After returning the 'raincloud' Bahos to the Kiva, go to the gas station. Gusty's Gas Station: First, go behind the counter and listen to Richard Talbot's messages. Read the note above the chessboard table in the waiting area to learn about the next puzzle. -Chess Puzzle: First, find the four chess pieces at the following locations: the toucan in Pearl's bedroom, the top dresser drawer in room 6 at the motel, the jail cell at the sheriff's department, and the O-P card catalog drawer at the library. Back at the gas station, open the top drawer of the table to find the chessboard. Look at bottom of each chess piece for its placement number. Using the diagram in Olivia's notebook as a guide, place the four pieces in their designated positions. Take the screwdriver from the chess table and use it on the jammed drawer behind the counter. Take the gas can from the drawer. Exit to the garage area now. Here, you'll need to use the hydraulic lift to raise Richard's car. The amount of pressure required can be found in the "Know Your Enemy" video. Flip the switch under the gauge then turn the red wheel to the right until the pressure reaches 240. Now turn the wheel left to lower the pressure to 200. Finally, turn the wheel right again to get 230. Next, go to the metal knob on the opposite side of the room and move it to the right. You'll find Dave's notebook taped to the car's underside. Make sure you take the donation box key from the notebook. Outside the station, fill the gas can at the pump. Next, find your way to the mine entrance. Mine Entrance: Before you can enter the mine, you'll need to power up the generator. Use the filled gas can on the gas receptacle then pull the generator switch. The Bahos inside the elevator is actually your reward for solving the chess puzzle at the gas station (its symbol is 'twin war gods'). Return the Bahos to the Kiva then jump back to the mine and take the elevator down. As you exit the elevator, turn left and take the east passage. Continue on down the south passage. Take a right at the burial ground then go through the nearest west passage. Continue through another west passage then turn around and you'll see a ladder leading up to a transport. Remember this location for later. Meanwhile, go to the north passage at the far end of the shaft and grab the torch lying against the wall. Exit the mine and go across the way to Burt's trailer. Burt's Trailer: In his note to Pearl, Burt says to find a deposit box key underneath his trailer. Use the crowbar on the corrugated metal to the right of the stairs. Take the key from the box stashed under the trailer. Inside the trailer, examine everything in the front room but don't open the armoire just yet. In the kitchenette, open the cupboard next to the fridge and take the fake Ianyi half. In the cupboard left of the window, open the recipe box and take the codebook grid. Have a look around in Burt's studio now. Turn over the painting of Norah to find the matchbook. As you replace the painting, Norah appears and offers more information. Now for that armoire in the front room. Use the matchbook to light the torch then use the torch on the armoire to safely remove the bees from it. Inside, you'll find another puzzle. -Cubes Puzzle: Roll the cubes so that the warrior symbol is facing up on each one. The catch is, the center space must be empty when you finish. Here's the solution. First, number the spaces from left to right starting with the top row. Now click the spaces in this order: 2, 3, 6, 9, 8, 5, 2, 1, 4, 7, 8, 5. The 'shield' Bahos is now yours to place in the Kiva. Next, return to the cafe for some unfinished business. There, use your last match to light the candle. Now use the blank slip of paper on the lit candle to reveal a phone number. Call the number and you'll receive the location of another Bahos (it's in the dresser in room five at the motel). Return the 'breath' Bahos to the Kiva. -Choose Your Enemy: As you leave Devil's Mouth Canyon, Norah asks you to name Darkcloud's true identity. The symbols, found at various locations throughout the town, each represent a suspect: Bearclaw = Tad Matthews Book = Max Wharton Cross = George Bellairs Eye = Burt Thompson Snake = Phil Dunlop Star = Andrew Washington Arrowhead = Charles Spencer As you may or may not have deduced, the answer is Norah's widower, Max Wharton. The motive: revenge. You should now have four remaining Bahos to return to the Kiva. Make your next destination the market. Phil's Market: The windowsill found here is the one referred to in the "Get a Grip" video. Lift up the loose tile near the tomato sauce cans to find the sunflower coin. Pick up the quarter lying in front of the soda machine and add it to your change. Put the sunflower coin in the soda machine then press the Desert Soda button. Take the decoder that rolls out. Behind the counter, listen to Phil Dunlop's messages. Click the rattlesnake a few times to agitate it. Take a minute to search the rest of the market. When you're ready for another puzzle, open the left-hand side of the refrigerator. -Egg Puzzle: Click the kachina doll's mouth to begin. The goal is to guide the egg to the blank cup at the opposite corner of the tray. The numbers on the tray indicate the amount of spaces the egg can be moved from each cup. Here's the solution: down, right, right, up, left, right, right, down, down, left, up, up, right, down, left, right, down. Return the 'cattle' Bahos to the Kiva. Now it's time to make a quick stop at the motel office. At the vending machine, select the batteries then use your quarters in the coin slot. Put the batteries in your cassette player. Head for the bank next. Safari Savings & Loan: Watch the video "Was I Even There?" for a clue on how to open the bank door. Using all the numbers provided, you need to make three sums equaling 11, 12 and 13. You can do so by clicking the numbers in this order: 1, 2, 8, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 0. Inside, listen to Tad's messages at the service desk. Use the disk in the computer and enter LYLE for the login name. The "Spell it out" video gives away the password, which is AIVILO. The decoder from the soda machine is used to translate the encoded clue in Lyle's message. The clue reads 'THE DAY OF HER DEATH REVERSED.' Look in the wastepaper basket to find a torn up letter from George Bellairs. Fit the pieces together to make the letter readable. To find the next puzzle, go to the framed kachina drawing near the entrance. -Kachina Picture Puzzle: Flip the triangles over to recreate the kachina drawing on the opposite side. The triangles can only move adjacently, making this somewhat of a trying task. Start by moving the two torso pieces to the bottom right corner. Now you have room to flip the two head pieces into their correct spots. Next, shift the two legs pieces into the top left corner and flip the torso pieces into position. Now bring the legs pieces down to their corner and, voila! Use the hammer from behind the frame to smash open the piggy bank kachina by the computer. Run the 'bearclaw' Bahos to the Kiva then come back to the bank. The framed newspaper clipping near the counter conceals a small safe. The combination to the safe can be found in the framed animal photos hanging around the room. You'll see that there's one tiger, five hyenas, four elephants, three impalas, five zebras and one tree. Return to the safe and enter the number of tracks for each species: 1, 5, 4, 3, 5, 0 (the tree, which doesn't leave a track, is zero). Take Tad's library key from the safe. The zebra print codebook will be used to open the vault, but first you need to check the number on the vault door. Look at the vault dial and you'll see a page number and direction letter. Open the codebook to the page number indicated by the dial. Now place the codebook grid on the page. Click the zebra icon to turn the grid to the correct direction (the notch cut into the edge tells which direction the grid's turned to). You should now be looking at the combination to the vault. You can open the vault now, but you won't be able to get into Burt's deposit box yet. For that, you'll need the other key, which Tad has left in the library conference room. And to get into the conference room, you still need two more door keys and a pass code. Still with me? Good J. Head for the church now. Community Church: In the chapel, unlock the donation box with the key from Dave's notebook. Inside, you'll find Tad's 'sizeable gift' along with the conference room door pass code. Pull the projection screen to see another message from Darkcloud, in which he asks for the other Ianyi half. In the back office, listen to George's messages. Search the desk for George's library key. Behind the folding screen lies the next Bahos puzzle. -Bingo Balls Puzzle: Arrange the balls in numerical order reading from left to right. The best way to solve the puzzle is to look at the glass tubes as one continuous circuit. You'll notice that if you line the positions up this way, the order the balls actually need to be in is 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 7, 6, 4. Work on getting them in this order and you'll have the puzzle solved in no time. If you need help, here's the solution. From the puzzle start, click the balls in this order: 5, 7, 6, 5, 7, 6, 5, 3, 8, 7, 6, 5, 3, 8, 7, 6, 5, 2, 1, 4, 6, 7, 8, 5. Once you've finished the puzzle, take the 'stairway to heaven' Bahos from the ball hopper and return it to the Kiva. The last Bahos can be found at the bakery. Cyclone Bakery: Another door puzzle, just like the one at the barbershop, is required before entering. Once inside, take Norah's music box from the counter. Listen to Keith Hickson's messages on the messaging unit. In the kitchen area, go to the big oven on the right. Pull the red lever then open the oven door to access the donut puzzle. -Donut Puzzle: The goal is to stack the donuts in five piles of two. Each donut you move must be jumped over two other donuts, stacked or otherwise. To reset the puzzle, press the red button. If you're stumped, here's the solution. Number the donuts from one to ten, starting on the left, then follow these moves: 4-1, 7-3, 5-9, 2-6, 8- 10. Take the final, 'arrowhead' Bahos from the rolling machine and return it to the Kiva. As you complete your task, the Kiva spirit will ask to be summoned. Use the cassette player, which should now contain batteries and the tape of Darkcloud's chanting, on the spirit's hole. The spirit now tells you to find the other half of Ianyi (Darkcloud already possesses one half). First, though, get the last library key at Phil's Market. The rattlesnake should be absent now (you can find it at the bakery). If it's still there, click on it a few times, exit the market then reenter. Look in the snake bowl for a code. Use the code to open the cash register, where you'll find Phil's key. At the library, insert the three other keys into their slots. Now flashback to the donation box note for the conference room door pass code. Search the conference room. You'll find the second deposit box key in the empty corner. Back at the bank, enter the vault and find deposit box 32 B. Use the two deposit box keys to unlock it. Grab the videocassette and the ceremonial sand. Return to your room at the motel to watch Burt's video. Before going to Max's cave to look for Ianyi, make a stop at the cemetery. Norah appears and mentions her mausoleum. Go to the secret tomb and grab the key from the floor. Now you're ready to search Max's cave. Max's Cave: As Norah told you earlier, the small, grayish stone at the entrance conceals the key to the gate. To enter the actual cave, you'll have to solve another puzzle. -Cave Door Puzzle: Arrange the sticks in the correct order. After selecting a stick, click it again to turn it over or click another stick to switch positions. The answer to the puzzle is Norah's death date reversed, so the sticks should read: 2-9-9-1-2-2-8. In the cave, examine the items around Max's desk. Take a moment to fulfill Norah's request. Place the music box next to the computer and click the keyboard to type her message to Max. Use the key from the mausoleum to unlock the basement door. Inside, you'll find a memorial dedicated to Norah. Take the Ianyi half from the shadow box on the table. Now go to Devil's Mouth Canyon for the final confrontation. Click any remaining spiral symbols to top off your life meter. When you try to enter the Kiva, you'll that Darkcloud has smashed the sacred skull. Norah appears and prompts you to find another way in. Remember that transport you saw in the mine? Make your way back there now. At the top of the ladder, you'll find a keypad. Enter the combination Norah gave you to activate the transport mechanism: 'star,' 'spider,' 'breath,' 'raincloud.' At the end of the shaft lies the second door to the Kiva. Kiva, Devil's Mouth Canyon: It's an extremely good idea to save your game at this point. In the center of the room, use the cassette player to summon the spirit once more. Now use the ceremonial sand to complete the sand painting. When Darkcloud and Norah finish their scene, the actions you choose will affect which ending you receive. -Worst Ending: Trust Darkcloud by giving him the Ianyi half. -Mediocre Ending: Trust Norah by giving her the Ianyi half. -Best Ending: Place the fake half of Ianyi on the altar. Wait for Darkcloud to crouch over the spirit hole then replace the fake half with the real one. Now you'll have to quickly solve a puzzle. -Mirrors Puzzle: Reposition the mirrors so that the beam passes through each jewel and ends in the receptacle. Failing to solve the puzzle before your life runs out will result in your having to restore your last saved game and re-insert disc one, so work quickly. Once you solve the puzzle, throw Ianyi down the spirit hole.
