    INTRODUCTION and NOTES:
    
       Well, I've just seen the ending sequence on CD #2. I solved all the
    puzzles except for the Microscope puzzle. I had to go to the Help Book
    three times to get past it. I have to say that this is one of the coolest
    game's I have EVEN seen. I really enjoyed the graphics, music (be sure
    to play the songs on CD 2 in your audio CD player, some great music!)
    and the puzzles. I enjoyed the ending though I thought it was a bit
    short. Be sure to read the credits at the end, if anyone gets through
    to the Best Girl I'd like to know how she was!
    
      See you at Stauf's house,

    Skulls and Headstones in my cake:
    
      OBJECTIVE: All 6 guest's need to receive an equal share of cake. The
                 problem is that the pieces given to each guest must touch
                 on a side. The final shape of the pieces for each guest
                 doesn't matter.
    
      The S's represent sections with a SKULL, the H's sections with a Headstone.
      The section without an H or S are just icing.

      Click on all 5 pieces with the number 1. After they fly from the cake
      click on all 2's, then 3's, 4's, 5's and finally 6's. All 6 guests
      received 5 pieces total consisting of 2 skulls, 2 headstones and 1 icing.

                 diagonals for as many squares as they want.

    Blood flow:
    
      OBJECTIVE: Open/Close gates so that the blood can flow from the heart to
                 the end. NOTE: Click the heart to get the blood flowing when
                 you think you have it.
    
      The easiest strategy I found was to start from the end. Click the gates
      and you will notice that the end with the little ball is fixed. Click the
      gates open and closed so that there is a continuous path for the blood to
      follow. By staring at the end this path is obvious.

    aMAZEing, isn't it?
    
      OBJECTIVE: Find your way through the maze to the basement. Another puzzle
                 awaits you there. NOTE: The room with the Bishop puzzle has
                 a maze on a carpet. This is also the map to the basement. 
                 The maze is recreated below. The lengths of sections in the 
                 actual maze seem different than the map indicates even though 
                 the overall relationship of openings etc. seems correct.

    Grating - Ain't it?
    
      OBJECTIVE: Move the grate parts around so that the circle cut in two
                 of them is over the opening. The bottom one protects you from
                 the spikes.

    Bishop's needing a change:
    
          OBJECTIVE: Swap the bishop's out, white to black.
    
              NOTES: You DO not have to move White/Black/White/Black etc.
                     You can start with Black or White AND can move multiple
                     Black or White Bishop's in a row.

      Clicking to open/close the lid on one affects the ones around it
      like this:  (X) is the one clicked - n means no change in the lid.
    
                n 2 n   1 n n   n n 3   1(2)3   n n n
                4(5)6  (4)n n   n n(6)  n n n   n n n 
                n 8 n   7 n n   n n 9   n n n   7(8)9
    
               (1)2 n   n n n   n 2(3)  n n n        
                4 5 n   4 5 n   n 5 6   n 5 6   
                n n n  (7)8 n   n n n   n 8(9)
    
      Notice that clicking 2,4,6 or 8 has no effect on 5.
    
      One more thing: Several times while trying to click on #9 I managed to
      instead click while the right beckoning hand was displayed. This exits
      the puzzle early. Be sure you have the EYE before clicking in a coffin.
    
      Although I am sure there is a nice algorithm for this solution I still
      have not found it. I have managed to solve it by brute force only.
    
      By resetting the puzzle I usually find a fairly easy one to solve within
      a few minutes.

    Knights in the Bathroom:
    
      OBJECTIVE: Swap the Black and White Knights.
    
       Solution: I've solved this through brute force. It took enough moves
                 that I don't plan to document it here.

    This is the PIT's:
    
      OBJECTIVE: Make your way along the colored bricks to reach the FINISH
                 block. There is a methodology you need to follow to complete
                 this.
    
          HINTS: You do not need to step om all the colored bricks to win.
                 Every third brick you step on needs to be purple.
                 When stepping on the FINISH brick it must be the third in that
                 sequence.

                 a number, and that the next move depends upon what color/number
                 you are starting from.

    Flip Picture:
    
      OBJECTIVE: Using the control buttons around the edges retore the picture
                 back to it's correct state. Each time the puzzle is restated
                 it is scrambled different.
    
       SOLUTION: When the picture is displayed correctly before being scrambled
                 the squares of it are numbered 1 to 9 as show below. Memorize
                 the section and it's number as shown below.
    
        BUTTONS: Clicking on B1 increments the picture shown in squares 1,4 and 7
                 to the next picture in sequence. If picture 9 was shown then
                 picture 1 is displayed in that square.
    
                 Clicking on B2 increments squares 2,5 and 8.
    
                 Clicking on B3 increments squares 3,6 and 9.
    
                 Clicking on buttons B7,B8 or B9 decrement their column.
    
                 Clicking on buttons B10,B11 or B12 increment the picture on
                 their row.
    
                 Clicking on buttons B4,B5 or B6 decrement their row.

       Note: I had the best luck resetting the puzzle until I got one that had
             the same pattern in columns 1 and 2. I was then able to increment
             column 3 to the same pattern. I was then able to increment row 1
             and 2 until all 9 squares had the SAME picture. I then set column
             2 to the picture before column 3. I then set column 1 to be the
             picture before column 2. I then decremented the rows 1 and 2 until
             I had the complete picture.

    Spelling Blocks:
    
      OBJECTIVE: Rearrange the blocks to spell the correct three words.
    
        CONTROL: Clicking on the TOP of a column slides the lower two
                 blocks up, the top one goes to the bottom. The opposite
                 is true by clicking on the BOTTOM of a column.
                 Clicking on the RIGHT edge of a row slides the row to the
                 right. The rightmost block goes to the left edge. Again the
                 opposite is true for the LEFT edge.
    
                 The blocks always initialize to the same configuration:

    Piano Bar:
    
      OBJECTIVE: Follow the song through 18 notes repeating in a 'Follow the
                 leader' type of game.
    
       SOLUTION: I taped a piece of paper to my screen and marked all the keys
                 on it. Then I numbered the keys 1,2,3...18 as they were
                 played.
    
      I believe this is the Sequence - Only part of the Keyboard is shown.
      I've entered this in two different formats, use the one you find easiest
      to follow.

    The musical solution is:
    
    Follow the Leader through the 18 note melody by playing the following keys. The
    Piano pictured is an accurate repro of a real piano.
    
    Play in sequence:
    
    Low B, up an octave to B, F#, G, E, D#, E, F#, E, Low B, up an octave to B, C,
    B, A, G, F#, E, F#.
    
    For those who have a little trouble, it may help to remind that 'B' is located
    to the right of any three key black sequence.

    Stauf's Face:
    
      OBJECTIVE: Restore Stauf's face to normal.
    
          NOTES: This is simular to the crypt puzzle except that each section
                 of the puzzle can be in THREE states. The sequence like this:
    
              +-> NORMAL --> Red --> Green --+  (Or is it Green --> Red?)
              |                              |
              +------------------------------+
    
    
      There are 9 sections arranged like this:
    
          1 2 3
          4 5 6
          7 8 9
    
      Clicking to change a section affects the ones around it like this:  
          (X) is the one clicked - n means no change in the piece.
    
                n 2 n   1 n n   n n 3   1(2)3   n n n
                4(5)6  (4)n n   n n(6)  n n n   n n n 
                n 8 n   7 n n   n n 9   n n n   7(8)9
    
               (1)2 n   n n n   n 2(3)  n n n        
                4 5 n   4 5 n   n 5 6   n 5 6   
                n n n  (7)8 n   n n n   n 8(9)
    
      Notice that clicking 2,4,6 or 8 has no effect on 5.
    
           NOTE: I kept resetting this one until I got a setup that seemed
                 logical to clear.

    Star Knifes
    
      OBJECTIVE: Remove knives by jumping over them with another knife. To win
                 you must have only one knife left on the board.
    
    
    
    
       SOLUTION: I've numbered the nodes like this:
    
    
    
                             1
    
    
                2         3     4        5
    
    
                       6           7
    
                             9
    
    
                  8                     10
    
    
    
                   Jump in this order:
    
                     FROM TOO  OVER
                     ---- ---- ----
                        6    1    3
                        5    3    4

                        1    7    4
                        5    9    7
                        8    7    9

    SkyScraper
    
      OBJECTIVE: Find the proper path throught the windows to clear each section.
    
       SOLUTION: You start on the BOTTOM section, click on window #1 and follow
                 then in order. Some of them will automatically turn on when
                 another is clicked. Click the next on that needs to be lite
                 when some are automatically turned on.
