.. Sungoer, there are a couple of threads with info on pipes. You can access by doing a search for pipes. This is a random generated puzzle so cannot give specific instructions. Click the green dot on the corners to turn them. Click the green marks on the pipes to change their configuration. Avoid the jutting rocks. The best tip is that you do NOT have to use all the pipes to solve the puzzle. Good Luck.

This is stupid and absolutely NOT FUN. I realize you can't give "keep giving hints". I bought the stupid strategy guide and it is no help The glyphs on the door make no sense in relation to the shapes by the animals in the rooms. This is a bad puzzle. I am really tired of spending frustrating hours trying to figure it out. The strategy guide should have be a lot more helpful - we PAID for it!!!!! I can't get this.

thank you so much - but unfortunately, I knew that already. My problem is that the glyphs on the door, with the animals, do not make sense in any triangle-related way.

Still can't get off the gears puzzle. Everything works but when I click on the lever under the beetle nothing happens. Have tried just holding it down but no luck. Any other ideas out there?

windidog, you need to click, hold, and turn the handle under the beetle. good luck.
..sorry, I just realized you had trouble with this earlier and went back to read your posts. If you've already tried these things, have no items left in any map, have no inventory items, ... I don't know what else to suggest. sorry

Okay - so I got the door open and found the fish - got the animal door open and now I think I'm supposed to put in some colored gears - where do I get the gears? I have nothing in inventory and have nothing left to find on the lists.

Am at the steam pipes - Piece of cake to get the whistle to blow. I then got the pump handle and put it in the correct place and I still have the pulley in inventory and don't know where to put it and if I click on solve I get another pump handle have been through this twice with the same results.

The frog is in a map by itself. I believe it's in the bottom right quadrant. It's on a flat panel type thing.

I decided to redo the whole puzzle. I got to the animal door/gear puzzle and have all the gears on correctly, turned the lever and..............nothing! I'm beginning to think there is something wrong with my version of the game. Is there some way to contact Big Fish Games to have them help me resolve this?

I can't get past this door. I even bought Strategy Guide, but still can't get thru. All the gears are on in correct order as in picture, but what now? I think it has something to do with beetle & lights but I can't get gears to move. When I click on lever all the gears go back to inventory. Please help.

grandmameals, check out page 4 of this thread. I think there's an explanation of the color gears. I don't remember the specific sequence but that post may help you As you place each gear, if it connects correctly, it will turn just slightly. Each gear placed should touch two other gears. when you turn the handle, every gear should turn. Hope this helps. Good Luck. .

Sungoer, are you on the map with the brown gear box? If so, you may have to solve that puzzle before you can find the pliers. If not, they may be in a different map.


the plires are on the next level. get them and then go back and open the door to the train. You will find by trial and error that you have to go back to go forward on some of these.

pashdi, the lever releases the gears back to inventory. When you have the gears in place, put your cursor on the knob of the handle under the beetle and click AND hold. Then move your cursor in circles ... which turns the handle. The legs of the beetle will flap and the lights below it will light up. If correct, all gears will turn and the door will open. good luck

rannlen, welcome to the forums. The dragonfly is in the same map as the bird. I'm trying to visualize it; I think it's at the top of the screen.
