On your computer if you go to Start, My computer, Local disk C, Program files, Echo Secret of the Lost Cavern, Manual. You will find an Adobe PDF file that you can open and read the manual of how to play the game. It is not a walkthrough. It is the booklet that comes with the game when it is sold on CD.

Also at the beginning of the walkthrough by MaGtRo at Gameboomers there are instructions on how the game mechanics work. This type of instruction for the game mechanics is always in the MaGtRo walkthroughs before the actual game walkthrough starts.

Good luck!

It's a very frustrating game especially if you are intent on progress. I've had to pull out my book of Zen and be content with walking around in circles clicking aimlessly. (NOT)

There are game guides and walkthroughs all over the place...I'm trying not to look but OH it is so tempting!

Try doing a search for a walkthrough on the web. Sometimes you can get free help at least temporarily.

You use the 3 rocks to make something you will need later to get rid of the she-lion. The rock the 3 rocks are on in this game is called an assembly rock and you can never pick up the stuff on it because you are meant to place things on it from you inventory and then use the tools on the rock on your items you placed on it. This game has various assembly rocks through it. But you have to scare the she-lion off briefly using something you already have inside the cave to get parts for what you are going to make. Happy gaming.

UHS hints a great site for hints because its just that, HINTS not a walkthrough. It just tells you enough to get you back on track.

http://www.uhs-hints.com/uhsweb/echo.php

"The Universal Hint System gives you just the hints you need to solve hundreds of computer games. Unlike traditional walkthroughs, the UHS lets you select specific questions and view only as much information as you want -- from subtle nudges to full answers -- so you can have more fun solving the game on your own"

I have read the abode outline but it does not tell me how to take something out of inventory and use it ..
I know how to get into inventory and click on something to get it out but not how to use it..
If I could get some help on how to start the fire then I think I can carry on myself..

I have the ice, hardwood and softwood but there is still a line through the cursor..Am I missing something critical??

I really want to play this game but it is frustrating on how to start ..

I await someones reply ..thankyou

Trapped in Cave

Look down on the ground and pick up bundle of firewood Turn around to the mouth of the cave and pick up piece of hardwood. Look outside and see the lioness waiting for you. Take the piece of ice at the mouth of the cave. Turn back to the dark cave and move forward. Pick up the dry grass and piece of softwood from the ground.

Build A Fire

Turn to the fire ring? place firewood, dry grass and piece of softwood on the fire ring. Click the piece of hardwood on the softwood and see the friction method of making fire.

Good Luck

Hi Stormy and believe me! I've been there! I did find this walk-through>http://www.the-spoiler.com/ADVENTURE/Kheops.studios/echo.1/ECHO.htm, which has been my bible throughout this game.

Hope it helps getting you out of the second cave.

Good luck!

I really did enjoy this game. Didn't even need a walkthrough once. All puzzles are doable and based on logics.

Very nice graphics and it was fun to fully explore the surroundings. I walked around much more then needed just to enjoy the world of Secret of the lost Cavern.

I'd recommend this one to each and everyone who likes adventure games

I can truely say this one and the Siberia adventures are my favourites.
