Credits 001-General Information --------------------------------------------------------- This is a walkthrough for the PC game called "Samantha Swift and the Hidden Roses of Athena". It's a casual, hidden object point-and-click adventure game. If you want to contact me about this guide, feel free to do so at email@example.com. I have a video walkthrough for this game, available here: http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=1B72BD18344CD576 002-Story --------------------------------------------------------- Samantha Swift is on a quest to find the hidden roses of Athena. There are six of them, and they're hidden in various countries in the world. Can she get all of them before the villains do? 003-Characters --------------------------------------------------------- Samantha Swift: Our heroine, Samantha Swift is an upbeat archaeologist who is intent on getting the best artifacts for her museum, the Museum of Secrets Lost, in New York. Dr. Butler: Samantha's partner, an older man who has taken care of her ever since her parents disappeared. He's a nice person who helps wherever he can. Adam Woodson: An expert on ancient symbols, Adam is called in to help decode some messages. He helps Samantha out sometimes during the game. Ravena Stryker: A poser archaeologist who tends to let her goons do all the work for her. She dislikes coming in second place. Markus Payne: Ravena's employer, a man who wants the power of Athena for himself. Athena: The Greek goddess of wisdom, war, and heroic endeavor, among other things. The city of Athens is named after her. 004-Walkthrough --------------------------------------------------------- 004a-Athens and the Scepter of Zeus --------------------------------------------------------- The game begins with Samantha Quick setting foot in Athens to find the legendary Scepter of Zeus. Her friend Dr. Butler is there to help out over the radio. Screen 1 -------- Of course, this game starts off with a basic introduction to how the game works. You have a list of twelve different things which are on the screen. Your goal is to find all these objects and click on them. For example, one of the objects you're looking for is a knife. There's a knife under the base of the tree. Click on the knife, and it gets scratched off the list of items to find. The most important item to find is the scanner (the green, circular thing) in the bottom/middle of the screen). The scanner will show you a silhouette of what you're looking for. Try it out by clicking on the word "shovel" on your "objects to find list", then click on the scanner. See? A picture of the shovel shows up, which should make it easier to find. (Clicking randomly too often momentarily disables the scanner) There are also lightning bolt hints. If you find a lightning bolt, click on it to add it to the hint counter in the lower/right. If you're ever stuck and can't find something you need to find, you can always use a hint to have its location shown to you. Finding objects isn't all there is to this game, however; you also have to solve puzzles. The blue items on the "items to find" list, which is the PDA in this case, are hidden by puzzles. You have to use tools to solve the puzzles. Go to the tool list by clicking the "tool" tab right above the "items" tab to see what tools Samantha has. In this case, Samantha has the knife and shovel that she found on this screen. (Obviously, if you haven't found the knife or shovel yet, you can't use them as tools). Use the knife as a tool on the green vines on the left- hand side of the screen. You can tell which vines to cut, because your cursor turns blue when it's over the right ones. Cutting the vines reveals the PDA. Now that you've found all 12 items, there's a thirteenth bonus item you can find! In most cases, you have to find the bonus item in order to proceed in the game. Here, it's the Golden Owl you have to find. Use the shovel tool on the pile of dirt on the right-hand side of the screen to find the Golden Owl, then use the owl on the door on the left to open it. You can then go through the door to enter the next room. Screen 2 -------- Just like the last screen, you have to find twelve items, then the thirteenth bonus item. Now, you might have noticed there are about twenty or so items on the screen. The twelve you have to find are actually randomly picked from the list of twenty, so that each time you play the game, you get a different set of items to find. However, some items will ALWAYS be on a particular screen, namely, the tools needed to solve the puzzles on the screen. So I'm just going to list all the tools and puzzles throughout this walkthrough, because those are the items which are NOT randomized. Tool #1: Crowbar in the lower left. Tool #2: A helmet above a block, on the bottom of the screen, in the center. Tool #3: Water jug on the plants on the right side of the screen. Tool #4: Armor, right below the water jug. Tool #5: A chisel is standing upright in a groove on the left, upright pillar. Puzzle #1: Use the water jug tool on the broken rocks in the middle part of the screen, in front of the large, gray stone block. This washes dust off of a rock to reveal drawing of a boat. Puzzle #2: Use the crowbar tool on the broken pillar on the left-hand side of the screen. This gets you the lance item. Puzzle #3: Use the chisel on the large, gray stone block between the two columns. Do this a few times to reveal a statue. Put the helmet, armor and lance items on the statue. This lets you get the broken shield, which sort of looks like a broken shield Samantha has at her museum. Getting the shield opens a pathway further underground. Go through the path to get to the next screen. Screen 3 -------- Cool, do you have the hang of things yet? Find all the items, then solve puzzles as necessary. You're basically going to do that throughout this entire game: finding hidden objects and doing puzzle solving. This room features a statue of Apollo overlooking a pool. In this room, Dr. Butler will contact Samantha and tell her that she can zoom in on a plate on the wall to get a closer look at the puzzle you can't solve yet because some of the levers are missing. Tool #1: The statuette is next to the locked door on the right. Tool #2: A brush, at the base of the rightmost pillar on the screen. Tool #3: The axe, which is the thirteenth item, is at the base of the leftmost pillar, in easy view. Puzzle #1: Use the brush on the wall left of Apollo. The dust that is brushed off reveals a Greek letter called "alpha". Fun fact: Alpha is the first letter in the Greek alphabet. In fact, it's where the world ALPHAbet comes from. Puzzle #2: Use the axe on the broken wall on the left to break through it. Screen 4 -------- This screen, I think, contains the first item which is not randomized, but is also not a tool. That's the torch near the entrance Samantha used to get into this room. Taking the torch causes a cave-in. Oh no! Also in this room, near the skeleton, are notes on the wall. Could they be a clue to an unsolved puzzle? Tool #1: A lever is sitting upside-down on a rock in the mid-left part of the screen. Tool #2: A statue is near the pool of water, in front of it. It's gray and tiny. Tool #3: A lever is on the leg bone of the skeleton. Ew... Tool #4: The miner's pick is in the upper/left corner of the screen, trying to hide as part of the background. Puzzle #1: Use the miner's pick on the rocks in the gutter to get water flowing. This reveals a key inside the gutter. Puzzle #2: Use the key on the door with a design in the background. The design looks like the key handle. Screen 3 Again -------------- We're back in Apollo's room, but now we have levers. Zoom in on the puzzle on the wall, the one that's missing levers. Of course, you want to put the missing levers into their proper places. The clue in Screen 4 has three pointing down and two pointing up. So make the left three levers point down, and make the right two levers point up. Tada! You solved the puzzle, and the door is now opened! Screen 5 -------- There's an ornate, golden circular piece on the wall here. I bet it's part of a puzzle! Tool #1: A statuette is leaning against the leftmost pillar in the room, right near the doorway used to get into the room. Tool #2: A hand shovel is in the middle of the screen, resting against rocks and orange flowers. Puzzle #1: Use the shovel on the dirt in the bottom/middle of the screen to dig in the dirt and find a wheel hub. Puzzle #2: Use the wheel hub on the circular piece on the wall. Puzzle #3: There are three openings on the circular design! Use the three statuettes on the openings. Each opening takes a particular statuette to open it. First, put the statuette that fits in the innermost wheel in place. Then rotate the wheel so the statue is facing down. (The wheel changes color when you snap it into place). Then, do the same thing with the middle wheel, then the outer wheel. When all three statuettes are on the wheel, and all three parts of the wheel are rotated so it's facing down, something happens. Screen 3 Again -------------- Hey, it's Dancing Apollo! The Apollo statue dances out of the way, leading you straight to the treasure room. Screen 6 -------- All right, a room full of gold and treasure! Looks like the budget problems that Samantha's museum is having are now officially OVER! Let's loot the treasure! Tool #1: There is a golden scoop in the middle of the screen, sitting on the gold, in front of an open treasure chest. Puzzle #1: Easy enough! The only tool you have is a scoop, so use it on the pile of gold in the middle of the room to find a key. Puzzle #2: Also easy! Use the key on the locked treasure chest. This gets you a sun pendant! Puzzle #3: Not so easy. Use the sun pendant on the little knob sticking out of the treasure box containing the sun pendant. You get the Scepter of Zeus. All right! Samantha found the Scepter of Zeus, along with a bunch of artifacts and a lot of gold! This is a pretty successful dig, wouldn't you say? Let's leave now. UH OH!!! The evil Ravena Stryker is here, waiting for Samantha. Ravena and her goons steal the Scepter of Zeus. Oh well, at least we got some cool stuff for the museum. 004b-Italy and the Rose of Industry --------------------------------------------------------- At the Museum of Secrets Lost in New York, Samantha and Dr. Butler examine the shield. Hey, the half of the shield Samantha found looks almost exactly like the half of the shield the museum has! In fact, when they put the two halves of the shield together... THEY GET ONE WHOLE SHIELD! And not just ANY shield! It's the Shield of Athena! Legend has it that if you have all six Roses of Athena and put them on this shield, you obtain the Power of Athena. I don't know what that means, but it sounds good, so let's find all six roses! Adam Woodson is here to help. He examines the symbols on the shield and deduces that the Rose of Industry is in Rome. Who's in the mood for pasta? Screen 1 -------- Screen 1 is an excavation site. The excavation is actually so big that it fills two whole screens. You need some items from Screen 1 to solve puzzles in Screen 2, and you need items from Screen 2 to solve puzzles in Screen 1. So, go back and forth between the two screens to get everything you need. What I like to do is start with Screen 2, and find the items there. Then, I finish Screen 1 and return to Screen 2. Screen 2 -------- Tool #1: A chainsaw is in the lower/right corner, near Samantha's head. Look out, Samantha! Tool #2: A red lever is standing upright to the right of the right pillar. Tool #3: A magnifying glass is on top of one of the rocks blocking the entrance to the temple. Tool #4: A hammer is in front of some rocks, just under the crook of the crane. Tool #5: An artifact, which is a golden statue head, is on the triangular piece being held up by two columns. Tool #6: Another golden artifact is in front of the rock next to the crane. Screen 1 -------- Tool #1: Artifact 1, which is a golden thing, is sitting on top of one of the gray cases. Puzzle #1: Artifact 2 is inside the other gray case. Use the hammer on the gray case to open it. Puzzle #2: Use the chainsaw on the little green tree to find the blue lever. Screen 2 (again) ---------------- Tool #7: Get the paper clip by using the magnifying glass on the wheels of the crane. You can then go inside the crane to find some puzzles. Puzzle #1: Use the paper clip in the keyhole to turn on the crane. Puzzle #2: Use the blue lever on the lever spot, and the red lever on the other lever spot. Pull the blue lever and then pull the red lever. Screen 3 -------- We're now inside the ruins, which have green ivy all over the ceiling. Tool #1: A saw is on the lower left, resting on one the legs of the ladder. Tool #2: The cane is on the rightmost side of the screen, to the right of a little alcove. Puzzle #1: Use the cane on the shield hanging from the ceiling (the one that is swaying left and right). This knocks it over and reveals a jewel. Puzzle #2: Use the saw on the single board of wood that is being propped up on the second floor. This reveals an artifact piece. Puzzle #3: You now have five artifact pieces. See the cloth on the right wall? Zoom in on the cloth and reassemble the statue, using the five artifact pieces. Once you put a piece on the cloth, you can rotate it 360 degrees, and if you put it in the right place on the outline, it snaps into place so you can't move it anymore. Finishing the statue opens the door. Screen 4 -------- This room has a little pool in it, and TWO exits. Let's go through the first exit, then return, then go through the second exit. Of course, there are puzzles blocking both exits. Tools #1-4: Four coins are lying on the floor, in plain sight. Tool #5: A fifth coin is lying hidden behind the yellow flowers near Samantha's head. It is on the left-hand edge of the flowers. Tool #6: A crowbar is lying on the ground behind the pool. Tool #7: A chain is lying on the ground behind the pool, and on the left. Tool #8: A chain is lying on the ground behind the pool, and on the right. Puzzle #1: Use the crowbar on the large rock in the upper/right to find a column. Puzzle #2: See the two loops in the ceiling? Hang the chains from them. Then put the column on the chains to form a battering ram. Click the column several times to make it move faster, and when it moves fast enough, it crashes into the debris which blocks the first exit. Screen 5 -------- This room is a messy kitchen. Tool #1: A coin is on top of a piggy bank on the floor. Tool #2: A coin is on top of a brownish pan on the floor. Tool #3: A fan is in the dirt near Samantha's head. Tool #4: A magnet is against the left-hand edge of the screen, on the table. Tool #5: A hook is in the corner of the room, near the torch. Puzzle #1: Use the magnet on the upside-down bowl on the floor to get a coin. Puzzle #2: Use the hook on the mouth of the fish (the one over the fireplace) to get a coin. Puzzle #3: Use the fan on the spilled flour (from the yellow pot which is spilling over) to find a coin inside it. Screen 4 (again) ---------------- You found ten coins in screen 4 and 5. Now put every single coin inside the water jug near the statue, and a new exit appears. Screen 6 -------- We have four statues in this room. The door is open only when the statues are dressed properly, but some rascal put the statue pieces all over the room! Tool #1: A sandal is on the debris in the bottom/middle of the room. Tool #2: See the first column that is left of the door? The earring is at its base. Tool #3: A mural block is on the debris in the bottom/middle of the room. Tool #4: A mirror is on the torch on the right. Tool #5: A mural block is to the right of the rightmost statue, level with the head of the statue. Tool #6: A spear is behind the right statue. It looks like the statue is holding it, but it's not. Tool #7: A brush is on the ceiling, above the rightmost statue's head. Tool #8: A helmet is part of the design on the door. Tool #9: A shield is part of the design on the door. Tool #10: A necklace is hidden on the next of the white statue on the left. It's almost like the woman in this statue stole the necklace from the other woman statue. Puzzle #1: Use the brush on spiderwebs above the doorway, the ones that are blocking the little face. This reveals a crown. Puzzle #2: The poor woman statue needs her accessories. Put the sandal, mirror, earrings, necklace and crown on her. Puzzle #3: The poor man statue needs his accessories. Put the helmet, shield and spear on him. Dressing up both statues makes them move aside as the doorway opens. Screen 7 -------- Second-to-last room. This one has water on the ground, and it looks rather bland. Tools #1-5: Mural blocks are scattered all over the room, but they're easier to find because they're big square blocks. The only one that might be hard to find is the one on the rim of the fountain. Tool #2: A silver gear is above the fountain, on the right, lying on the dirt. Tool #3: A bronze gear is on the leftmost pillar, hidden by flowers. Tool #4: A hammer is on the dirt near the bottom/left corner of the screen. Puzzle #1: Use the hammer on one of the white tiles on the floor. The proper tile touches the bottom edge of the screen, and it is to the right of the puddle of water. Breaking this tile reveals a mural block. Puzzle #2: As you can guess, there's a mural puzzle on the exit door. Put all the mural blocks into place to form a mural of a woman, standing near a pillar and roses. Just like the last "put the pieces into place" puzzle, the pieces snap into place and change color when you put them into the correct spot. Screen 8 -------- This room is some kind of gear room. Tools #1-3: Gears are lying on the ground. Puzzle #1: Put the gears onto the gear spots. They are color-coded. So put the gold gear on the gold spot, the bronze gear on the bronze spot, etc. When all five are in place, pull the lever and you get the Rose of Industry. Great! 004c-Guatemala and the Rose of Conquest --------------------------------------------------------- Our heroes examine the shield to learn that the next rose appears to be in Guatemala, although some of the markings don't fit. Dr. Butler points out that Ravena Stryker is currently running a major dig in that area, so it's probably the place we want to go to. Screen 1 -------- Samantha starts out in a market. This is a multi-room puzzle, just like at the start of Rome. You have to go back and forth between the two screens until all the puzzles are solved. Screen 2 -------- Uh oh, Ravena's goons are here! We're going to have to figure out how to get past them! Tool #1: A baseball is at the bottom of the pinata stand. Tool #2: A plank is near the baseball, next to a bucket. Tool #3: A second plank is on the road, a bit further past the second goon. Tool #4: A scoop is against the side of the purple stand, next to the broom. There are no puzzles you can solve here yet, but you can use those tools to solve puzzles on the first screen. Screen 1 -------- Tool #1: A camera is on a mat on the left. It's just below a sign pointing to the other part of the market. Puzzle #1: Take a picture of the parrot with the camera. The parrot flies off and leaves you a feather. Puzzle #2: Use the baseball on the boy. He trades you his marbles for the baseball. Puzzle #3: Use the scoop on the sack of melons to find a brooch. Screen 2 -------- Puzzle #1: Use the marbles on the goon on the left to get rid of him. You can then steal his nightstick. Puzzle #2: Use the feather on the little boy to take care of the other goon. You can then take his watch and money. Puzzle #3: You can use the nightstick on the pinata to get a golden mask. All puzzles in this room are now done! Screen 1 -------- Puzzle #1: Give the money to the lady in order to purchase a map. Yes! The puzzles on the first two screens are done! Screen 3 -------- Sam is now at the archeological site! Unfortunately, the bridge is out. Tool #1-6: Six wooden planks are spread all over the screen. Tool #2: A carving is to the right of the stairs in the upper/left. Tool #3: A sonar kit is lying against a peg in the dig area. It's inthe far right. Tool #4: A hand shovel is lying against a peg in the dig area. It's in the middle/right. Puzzle #1: Put all the wooden planks back onto the bridge to rebuild it so Sam can get across. Puzzle #2: Use the sonar on the dig area to see the location of the underground artifacts. Puzzle #3: Use the shovel to dig out these artifacts. Press the mouse button to dig, or hold down the mouse button to dig constantly. There are nine artifacts to find! Three of them are different parts of a totem pole. Screen 4 -------- You're now in the heart of Ravena's camp, with a tent and goon on guard. First, you'll have to distract the guard somehow so you can look at things in this area. Puzzle #1: Use the coins on the water cooler to knock it over. The guard leaves to investigate. Tool #1: Scissors are on the stone shelf on the left. Tool #2: A stick of dynamite is against the base of the statue in the upper/right. Tool #3: A canteen is partly hidden behind the statue in the upper/right. Tool #4: A large stone is sitting on top of the board in the upper/right part of the screen. Tool #5: Dynamite is on top of the green/brown case on the left side. Puzzle #2: Use scissors on the tent to open the tent. Hey, they've got a totem pole piece inside! It's protected by security, though. Tool #6: The key is inside the tent, on the gray case (on the right). Puzzle #3: Use the key on the locked gray case (in the bottom/right corner) in order to get wire cutters. Puzzle #4: Use the wire cutters on the wires that lead into the tent. These wires connect the tent to the bottom/right corner. This disables part of the security for the totem pole piece, so you can take it easily. Puzzle #5: Uh oh, the totem pole piece was on a pressure sensor! We have to fool the sensor with an item of similar weight. Put the large rock on the sensor, then move on to the next area. Screen 5 -------- Aha, we're at the cave which contains the Rose of Conquest! Kind of. Okay, not really. But we do need to get through to the other side of the cave. Tool #1: A stick of dynamite is on the red case, in the upper/middle. Tool #2: A stick of dynamite is near the crate on the left, inside the opening of the tent. Tool #3: A metal detector is near the second stick of dynamite, inside the opening of the tent on the left. The end of it is sticking up out of the jar/pot. Puzzle #1: Use the metal detector in the patch of dirt in the bottom/middle. This patch of dirt is roped off, indicating that it's a good place to dig. The metal detector beeps when you hold it over a key. Puzzle #2: Use the key on the locked blue case to get the detonator (for the dynamite). Puzzle #3: Put the four sticks of dynamite inside the four holes on the cave wall. Puzzle #4: Put the detonator onto the red dynamite box and press it down. Kablooey! The wall explodes. Screen 6 -------- We're at a river, and there are three places here that are designed to hold totem poles. Tools #1-8: The totem pole parts are scattered all throughout this scene. Puzzle #1: Make three totem poles! The base has a rounded bottom, the piece above the base looks like an owl, the piece above that is a man with a hat, and the top piece is rectangular. All three totem poles look exactly the same, and if one piece doesn't fit, try another! Once the three totem poles are in place, they sink down. The river then gets blocked with a large piece of stone, and the way to go is revealed. Screen 7 -------- Tool #1: A brown flute is in the upper/middle. It's to the right of the bats. Wait, bats? Oh no! Tool #2: The brush is on a plant in the upper/left. Tool #3: An ordinary gray stone is in the middle of the screen. Samantha collects the oddest things sometimes... Tool #4: A diamond is on the upper/middle of the screen. It is hidden by the stalactites. Puzzle #1: Use the flute on the bats to make them go away. This reveals a skull. Puzzle #2: Use the brush on the spider web to get a bag of gold. Puzzle #3: Use the diamond on the white crystals in the right/middle (to the right of the gray path) to get a red ruby. Puzzle #4: Use the stone on the white-ish crystals on the left side of the path (inside the cave). This knocks a stone into the path. Puzzle #5: Use the bow on the pieces of wood that block the exit. Samantha then starts a fire in the middle of the jungle. This might not be the best idea she's ever had. Screen 8 -------- This screen is very green. Oh joy. Tools #1-4: The chameleons are all hidden in the leaves of the jungle. Two are on the left, one is on the right, and one is above the path. Tool #5: The jaguar is hiding on the path, on the left. Tool #6: The machete is hiding on the path, on the left. It is closer to the bottom of the screen than the jaguar is. Tool #7: The snake is hidden in the leaves, to the right of the path. Tool #8: The shaman staff is in the upper/right corner. It is brown, with a green stone. Puzzle #1: Use the machete on the leaves at the end of the path to open the way to the temple. Screen 9 -------- All right, we're almost done! This is the temple with the rose of conquest! We just need to open the front door of the temple by decorating the pair of snakes. Tool #1: A bat is on top of the snake to the left. Tool #2: Gloves are inside the green pool in the middle/left. They are along the bottom edge to the pool, which is near the middle of the screen. Tool #3: A heron is standing in the green pool. It is near the corner of the temple. Tool #4: Snake skin is along the left side of the screen, under the circular red thing. Tool #5: Snake skin is in the green pool, along the tree root. Tool #6: A green snake eye is near the oar, hiding in the shadows of the entrance to the temple. Puzzle #1: Use the two snake skins on the sides of the two big snakes near the temple entrance. Puzzle #2: See the gray flower sticking out of the pool of water in the lower/middle? Pick it with the gloves to find a snake eye. Puzzle #3: Put the snake eyes in the eyes of the two big snakes near the temple entrance. Tool #7: The snake tongue, which looks like a red boomerang, is on top of the corner of the temple. Puzzle #4: Put the snake tongue in the mouth of the snake on the right. The snakes are now decorated, so we can go inside the temple. Screen 10 --------- Do you see the list of items to find? It's empty, except for the Rose of Conquest. No hidden items! Yay! Puzzle #1: Put the shaman's staff in the hole in the ground. Puzzle #2: Dump Samantha's entire inventory on the altar. We see a short cutscene that sets up... Puzzle #3: It's Jewel Quest, a game that often comes bundled with this game on a CD. To solve this puzzle, make matches all across the board. The trick is that you have to make matches of three. When you make a match, the background of that tile turns gold. Make every tile's background turn gold in order to win! Samantha gets the Rose of Conquest, which is blue. Hooray! 004d-England and the Rose of Justice --------------------------------------------------------- The evil Markus Payne is upset that Samantha has taken another rose. He discusses this with Ravena Stryker. They decide to not interfere when Samantha gets the Rose of Justice from London because Samantha has already beaten them there. Screen 1 -------- Samantha is in Buckingham Palace! You'd think they would clean this place up a bit. It's filthy! I guess it's up to Samantha to get rid of the mess. Tool #1: The ladder is leaning against the left wall. Tool #2: The pencil is on the floor, partially hidden by a red thing. It is left of the red stairs in the bottom/middle of the room. Puzzle #1: Use the ladder on the two blue seats on the right. The ladder pushes them down, revealing a crown and a throne. Puzzle #2: Use the pencil on the painting of the woman in red. Erase near her hands to see that she is holding a rose. Looks like we're in the right place! Exit through the curtains. Screen 2 -------- The plaque on the wall looks strange. If you zoom in on it, Adam says it's probably some kind of code. Good work, Adam. Good work. Tool #1: The statue of King Arthur holds a wind-up key in his hands (as well as a sword). Tool #2: A paperweight is underneath the desk. Tool #3: A nail file is on the coat rack. Puzzle #1: The wind-up key is used on the box on the table, which is under the strange plaque. This reveals a dancer. Puzzle #2: Use the paperweight on the bottle on the desk to get a bottle. Puzzle #3: Use the nail file on the box in the lower/right, which is touching Samantha's face. Tool #4: The gavel is underneath the plaque, on the sofa. Puzzle #4: Zoom in on the plaque, and use the gavel on it. Break the three pieces of glass to see that the code reads "Follow King Arthur". And so, Samantha leaves the room, through a hidden passageway behind the statue of King Arthur. Screen 3 -------- Tool #1: The lance is part of a painting along the left wall, under the stain glass windows. A man is holding it. Tool #2: The hand cart is to the right of the leftmost statue. Puzzle #1: Use the lance on the red curtains to find a dove. Puzzle #2: Use the hand cart on the statue that is second from the left to move it aside and find a glass cutter. Puzzle #3: Use the glass cutter on the stain glass window above the red curtain, in the center of the room. Put all the pieces of glass into the window so that all four sides of the window match. That is, the pattern repeats itself. (Also, most of the missing pieces are uniquely shaped, so you can only fit them in one place on the screen anyway). Screen 4 -------- The stained glass window leads to a rainbow, which leads to here: some dungeons. Tool #1: The trowel is next to the green plant, at the base of a column in the middle/left. Puzzle #1: Use the trowel on the broken brick (on the left side of the base of the archway). This gets you goggles. Puzzle #2: Use the goggles anywhere to put them on. Then, pick up the skeleton key, which is on the floor, near the door. Puzzle #3: Use the key on the door. Screen 5 -------- Puzzle #1: We're in a maze! How do you get through? Follow the letters on the signs. The letters spell out "King Arthur". For example, at the beginning, you go forward to the K, then turn left. Go forward to the I, then turn right. Go forward to the N, then go forward. It's pretty simple. Just take the paths that spell out the words "King Arthur". Make sure to pick up all the statues and wall decorations as you go through the maze! The proper pathway leads you to all the correct statues. Puzzle #2: At the end of the maze is a door, with a skeleton key in the corner. Grab the key and use it on the door to open it.
