    I wrote this hint guide after getting frustrated with the game and 
    not finding much out there to with good hints rather than spoilers, 
    and the Universal Hint guide not being too helpful. So I thought I'd 
    make my own and save others my pain! 
    
    Please email me your feedback, improvements and additions to 
    AlsHints@hotmail.com
    
    Your thanks warms my icy heart :)
    
    If you're feeling super-generous, you can feed me tears of joy (i.e. 
    money) via Paypal at sunshinemind@googlemail.com Then you'll REALLY 
    be in my good books! 
    I will spend it on buying the world's largest crumpet (this may be a 
    lie).
    
    ________________________[INTRODUCTION]_______________________________
    
    Want some general help and hints?
    
    Are you stuck somewhere, but just want a hint, not the complete 
    answer?
    
    Welcome to Als Hint Guide!
    
    YOU SHOULD READ THE "GENERAL TIPS" AND "GENERAL PUZZLE HINTS" 
    SECTIONS FIRST!
    
    ________________________[GENERAL TIPS]_______________________________
    
    RUNNING	
     Double-click to run.
    
    TELEPORTING
     To "teleport" and speed your movement, go to the Game Options (at  
    the top right of the screen) and then Game Settings. Tick the Time 
    Skip box and return to the game. Now you can use the Escape key to 
    speed up movement and skip any animation in the game. No more waiting 
    ten minutes to get to the other side of the screen!
    
    SKIPPING ANIMATIONS
     You can skip any animation in the game using the Time Skip option 
    (see above). Great for "fast-forwarding" those long character walk 
    sequences, characters that take ages to turn and speak to you, and so 
    on. You can skip video and speech using this too. Be careful not to 
    skip something important! Note that there's a few, really annoying 
    interactions you can't skip of the puzzle variety.
    
    SKIPPING DIALOGUE
     Right-Click in the dialogue box or press Escape to skip lines of 
    dialogue. Subtitles recommended for this option!
    
    INVENTORY SHORTCUT
     Right-Clicking in the game world window is a short-cut to open or 
    close your inventory.
    
    USING ITEMS GLOW
     When you use an item from your inventory (with the hand icon) the 
    mouse cursor changes to that item. If you move it over an object in 
    the game world that it can interact with, the icon will have a 
    pulsating glow. Save time by looking for the glow before clicking, no 
    glow - no point! To eliminate your options quickly in a screen, try 
    using your items and moving them around the screen - if they glow, 
    you've struck gold!
    
    _____________________[GENERAL PUZZLE HINTS]__________________________
    
    Sometimes in this game it's not clear how to progress. Try these 
    general things before you succumb to The Longest Puzzle fatigue. If 
    they don't work, the specific puzzle hints in the next section might 
    help.
    
    EXHAUST THE DIALOGUE TREES
     Make sure you've said everything on offer to all the characters that 
    you have access to. Sometimes an event that's recently happened, or 
    something a different character has told you can open up new dialogue 
    options and move the story forwards.
    
    DID YOU MISS AN AREA?
     The area exits aren't brilliantly signposted in this game. Try 
    moving your cursor around the obvious exits for each area you can 
    access. It turns red if there's an exit, and text shows where the 
    exit takes you to.
    
    DOES AN AREA SCROLL?
     Maybe you missed a part of an area. Some of the areas "scroll", i.e. 
    the camera pans when you walk to the edge of the screen, revealing 
    more of that area. Check for this by running to the edges of the 
    areas you can access.
    
    GO TO ANOTHER AREA
     Sometimes an event will trigger if you just go to a different area, 
    advancing the story. Visit previous locations in case you trigger an 
    event like this, even if there doesn't seem a reason for anything to 
    have happened. Remember to use Time Skip to speed your movement (see 
    General Tips above).
    
    EXAMINE ITEMS AND OBJECTS
     Examining items in your inventory (using the eye icon) sometimes 
    goes into a close-up view of the item where you can interact with it. 
    In the game world, sometimes examining objects will then create an 
    interact option which appears the next time you click on the object.
    
    COMBINE ITEMS
     Don't forget you can sometimes combine items in your inventory! Just 
    "use" the item so it becomes your cursor, then click on another item 
    in your inventory.
    
    USE APRIL
     You can examine April at different parts of the game for different 
    speech, you can also use some items on her to solve puzzles.
    
    _______________________[SPECIFIC PUZZLE HINTS]_______________________
    
    Stuck at a specific place or puzzle? Here's hints for the trickier 
    parts of the game. To avoid spoilers, start at a part you've just 
    done and work your way down until you reach the bit you're stuck at.
    For each problem, the further down you scroll, the more revealing the 
    hints become. I won't always give the complete answer - if you're 
    really stumped try a walkthrough!

    corresponding to the chapter you need.

    C2_______________________[CHAPTER 2]_________________________________
    
    
    =====================================================================
    Chapter 2...............How do I get into the cinema?................
    =====================================================================
    
    
    
    
    First you need to get rid of Freddie Melon. The lights are his 
    responsibility.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    How can you affect the lights?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    You need to get to that fuse box.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    =====================================================================
    Chapter 2........How do I get rid of the guy by the fuse box?........
    =====================================================================
    
    
    
    Give him something
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    He likes sweets
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Need to find sweets? Try somewhere that sells food and drink.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    =====================================================================
    Chapter 2...The fuse box guy still won't budge... what now?..........
    =====================================================================
    
    
    
    A normal sweet is a bit too generous, no?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Any way you can modify the sweet?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Seen anything you could put on the sweet?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Or put another way... seen anything you could put a sweet in?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Have you interacted with all the objects around the cinema?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    What about that trash can?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    That mess under the trash can... doesn't smell so good....
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Put a sweet into the ooze
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Now give the man a "nice" treat...
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    I need the fuse box key.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Have you seen any keys on your travels?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Maybe somewhere in East Venice?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Tried the subway station?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    =====================================================================
    Chapter 2.............I can't get to that damned key!................
    =====================================================================
    
    
    
    
    You need a way to haul it up from there.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    A rope of some kind might be a good start.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Have you tried opening April's room window?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    =====================================================================
    Chapter 2.............Now I need a hook!.............................
    =====================================================================
    
    
    
    
    You need an object from somewhere in East Venice
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Try near the Border House
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Try to the left of the Border House
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    What could you take from the machine?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    How do I get the thing from the machine?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    The machine needs power first.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Something's wrong with the wires. Can you fix them?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Do you have any items that can fix them?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Something metal?
    
    
    =====================================================================
    Chapter 2.........Now the machine is on, but I'm stumped.............
    =====================================================================
    
    
    
    
    All the dials need to be horizontal.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    The green lights show which dials will move when you hit the switch.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Configure it so three are one move from the horizontal, then select 
    those three at once and rotate them.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    After its got power, you still need to do a few things. Look around 
    the machine.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    =====================================================================
    Chapter 2...Even with the "hook", I still can't pick the key up. Now 
    what?................................................................
    =====================================================================
    
    
    
    
    Did you try combining the clamp with the rope? If yes, continue 
    reading.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    If so, you need a way to open the clamp
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    You need an object which will hold it open. Got anything that fits 
    the bill?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    If not... you need to go and find it.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    It's in East Venice somewhere.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Have you looked out of April's window to the river?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    You need to free that ducky!
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Maybe that gull can help.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Lure it down to the ducky.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Find some food to lure it.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    If you haven't got anything it likes, try looking in somewhere you 
    can buy food and drink.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Oh no, where did ducky go?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Head back out to the clock area.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Head to the cafe.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    There he is! Now how can you use him?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    You need to deflate him.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Try examining him.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    After he's deflated, you need to inflate him again.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Huff and puff!
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Now you can use him to keep the clamp open!
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    If he deflates, just take him out and inflate him again.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Inflate and combine him with the clamp/rope before trying at the 
    subway again.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    =====================================================================
    Chapter 2........I'm in the fuse box but can't affect the wires......
    =====================================================================
    
    
    
    
    
    You need to be insulated. Got anything that fits the bill?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Something rubber you can wear? If not, go searching (try East 
    Venice).
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    The rubber thing doesn't help. It needs patching up.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Didn't you get something from ducky earlier you could use?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    =====================================================================
    Chapter 2.....Did the fuse box. Now I need to get in the fire exit...
    =====================================================================
    
    
    
    
    Lure Freddy out so the door opens.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Is that a fire alarm by the door?

    Chapter 6................I'm on the ship. What now?..................
    =====================================================================
    
    
    You need to get rid of the Captain first.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    You need to make a minor calamity.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Start below decks.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    You need to pick something up here.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    You can't pick it up? Could you make it easier to catch?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    What about slowing it down with something?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Don't seem to have anything to slow it? Felt hungry lately?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    What food items do you own?

    Would be a shame if the captain thought something was wrong with the

    Chapter 7.............I can't talk to the merwoman...................
    =====================================================================
    
    
    Seems you need to create that concoction from the drawings in the 
    first chamber.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    You can find two of the items in the environment around you.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Blood might be a bit trickier.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    You can't bleed underwater (for some reason).
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Maybe you can bleed where there's air?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    You must have something to help you bleed.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    =====================================================================
    Chapter 7.......I can get to the shipwreck but can't seem to 
    progress.............................................................
    =====================================================================
    
    
    Have you showed the crystal from the merwoman's house to the 
    merwoman?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Time to check out that seaweed...
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    =====================================================================
    Chapter 7.......Oh god, a symbol puzzle. A complicated one! Give me a 
    starting clue!.......................................................
    =====================================================================
    
    
    
    
    First you need to get the rotating inner wheels into the right 
    position.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    The markers on the inner wheels bear some relation to the markers on 
    the outside edge.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Move each inner marker so it's aligned with a related edge marker (4 
    pairs). You'll hear a noise when they're all correct, and you won't 
    be able to move the inner markers any more.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    =====================================================================
    Chapter 7.......Give me a clue about the rest of the symbol puzzle!..
    =====================================================================
    
    
    
    
    It will probably help if you make a note of the colour of each of the 
    4 crystals and which symbols appear on each. It gets confusing when 
    you're bringing them in and out otherwise.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    It's all to do with which symbols are facing in which direction.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    The "inner" sides of the crystals should have the symbol of the 
    marker they're facing towards. In other words if one crystal side is 
    facing towards the fish, it should have a fish on it.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    The "outer" side of the crystals facing the marker stones should also 
    be logical in some way.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    The "outer" side of the crystals should match the symbol on the 
    opposite side of the circle - NOT the symbol it's facing.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    =====================================================================
    Chapter 7............Ok, I've plundered the shipwreck, now what?.....
    =====================================================================
    
    
    
    
    Did you check over all of the cave where the crystal puzzle was?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Maybe you can do something with that symbol in the cave wall...

    =====================================================================
    Chapter 8............I've found the beach, the clifftop, the ruins 
    and been down the hole. There's two statues but I can't figure them 
    out. Now I'm stuck...................................................
    =====================================================================
    
    
    
    This is a poor piece of level design. You need help to see into the 
    jungle, so you can go there.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Call on your winged buddy whilst you're in the screen with the ship 
    debris. Now you can go around the whole island.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    =====================================================================
    Chapter 8....I've been into the jungle. Now these statues, help me 
    out!.................................................................
    =====================================================================
    
    
    
    Have you visited the big tree where the stickmen are? If not, find 
    out how to do that first.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    First clue - your objective is to get your voice to come out of the 
    giant volcano mouth to wake the giant.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    You can only speak directly into the statue in the jungle.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    You need to be able to rotate the statues and align them in the right 
    way. Tip: rotate slowly because you can't rotate the rings the other 
    direction, you have to go all the way round if you overshoot - 
    frustrating! Note that Time Skip can't be used either :(
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    To rotate the statues you need the key. Go and find that if you 
    haven't got it.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    You can speak into the jungle tree but your voice isn't going 
    anywhere yet.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    You need to send your voice to another place.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    You can only do this if you understand what the symbols mean.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    There's somewhere in the island that explains what each symbol 
    represents.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Check out the volcano mouth. It should be obvious now.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Now you know the symbols, you can try sending your voice to the 
    symbol for the location you want your voice to go to.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    In the jungle, you need to make sure the statue is receiving your 
    voice and transmitting it somewhere.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    However, the statue you're sending the voice to needs to be 
    configured to hear the voice.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    The order of symbols on the turnable rings is the same for all 
    statues, use this info to figure out what should be in the gaps in 
    the broken rings.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    If you are sending the voice correctly and it's being received, the 
    camera angle will change to the location briefly to show you this.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Remember some of the statues are broken and can't speak or receive 
    when they get a message from certain locations.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Send your voice to the cliffs first and set the cliff statue up to 
    receive it. Then send it somewhere else.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Set the cliff statue to transmit to the ruins statue, then send it on 
    from there.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Set the ruins statue to transmit to the volcano mouth.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    The symbol for the volcano mouth symbol is shown in the volcano 
    mouth.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    It's the symbol which uses the mirror.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Set this all up and your voice should be sent across all the statues 
    until it reaches the volcano mouth!
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    =====================================================================
    Chapter 8....The giant's at the beach cliff, the stickmen are at the 
    crossbow, now what?..................................................
    =====================================================================
    
    
    
    Have you spoken to the stickmen again?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    =====================================================================
    Chapter 8...............I need to test fire the cannon. How?.........
    =====================================================================
    
    
    You need two items for this.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    You can find them somewhere on the island.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Try the cliffs.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Maybe the items work better together.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Now you've put that item on the crossbow, you need to fire it 
    manually.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Look for the lever beside the crossbow (poor signposting on the 
    games' part!).

    Chapter 12.......I'm stuck in the waiting room with the crowd........
    =====================================================================
    
    
    
    After you've checked the ladies toilets, you can now enter the men's 
    instead.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    =====================================================================
    Chapter 12....Stupid grill! I don't have a screwdriver any more!.....
    =====================================================================
    
    
    
    
    Do you have anything else which could be used for unscrewing?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    =====================================================================
    Chapter 12.....I can't get past this bit with the guard, camera and 
    control room.........................................................
    =====================================================================
    
    
    First of all, you need to get the guard away from the control room.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    I bet he'd love a nice drink.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    You're good at making nice things nasty by now.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Do you have anything you can spike his drink with?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Did you check everywhere you can go for objects you can interact 
    with?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    What about the men's toilets?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    That Heat would go lovely with a cuppa!
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    =====================================================================
    Chapter 12.....I'm sending guards on and off duty but it's not 
    helping me progress much, what's next?...............................
    =====================================================================
    
    
    
    
    Your first priority is to rescue the Guardian.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Find out what cell he's in first.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    The control room can help.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Now visit the cell block (when it's unguarded).
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    So you need the cell key... best have a look around.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Maybe that guard you spiked had a key somewhere?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Check out the control room more closely.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    =====================================================================
    Chapter 12....I've got Adrian, but what should I do with him?........
    =====================================================================
    
    
    It's not very obvious, but you need to get out to into space. So take 
    him to the airlock.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    =====================================================================
    Chapter 12....Adrian's in the airlock - What now, I'm stuck..........
    =====================================================================
    
    
    
    You need to get outside the ship.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    The airlock's a good place for that.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Search the airlock.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Get that space suit working.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Inspect the suit closely.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Find the panel on the suit. You need a part for it.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Where could you find parts?
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Try the cargo bay.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Use the computer in the cargo bay to help.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Get the part and fix the suit.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    Now talk to Adrian.
