Walkthrough differences for iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch

[Post New]by bfgMonongahela on Apr 18, 12 10:09 AM
Hi iFishies,

We've found that the steps in our walkthrough (which was written for the PC/Mac versions of this game) will differ gamers playing the iPad/iPhone/iPod touch versions of this game.

Our Mobile Team has put together a step-by-step guide for completing Chapter 2, which is where many of the differences occur:

After you have received the SAW from the first Hidden Object scene in Chapter 2, tap 'Back' then tap on the left side of the screen. Now, you will see the windmill and the tree.

***The Hidden Object scene containing the GLUE has been removed from the game. The Pool Room is also not accessible and is not necessary to progress in the game.***

Here are the steps to progress from there:

Tap on the rope on the windmill to remove it.
Place the LADDER on the left tree.
Zoom into the top of the tree.
Cut the branch with the SAW .
Take the ROPE from the ground.
Zoom into the door; cut the chains with the BOLT CUTTERS.
Go through the door.

Place the ROPE on the ornament above the cupboard.
Click on the excess ROPE on the ground to send some of it outside.
Go outside and zoom into the fountain on the right.

Tap on the Ballerina and she will start spinning and pulling the rope.
Go back inside; the cupboard will be on the ground.

Zoom into the wooden boards on the left
Remove the boards with the SAW by cutting them several times.
Take the FIREWOOD from the ground.
Go through the door.

Take the ROLLER ORGAN PART on the window sill after Sarah disappears.
Zoom into the coffee table by the window.
Take the OWL KEY.
Zoom into the cobweb in the ceiling.
Tap to release the ICE PICK
Return to the fountain outside.

Break the Garden Dwarf with the ICE PICK to obtain the LOCK PIECE.
Go back inside and through the left door

Zoom into the table on the right.
Place the LOCK PIECE on the table to trigger a mini-game.
Rotate the pieces to mirror the image in the screenshot. Correct pieces will lock in place.
The top will open after the pieces are in place, revealing a second puzzle.

Place the keys into their respective holes, as in the screenshot, and then click each key to unlock a secret compartment below.
Take the PAWL from the secret compartment.
Click down.
Zoom into the boiler.
Place the SPARE BOILER PARTS on the boiler.


Sorry for any confusion this may have caused, but I hope this helps!

Will the team be working on anything past Chapter 2? It looks like there is also a chess scene that may be missing from the iPhone/iPad version of the game as well.

Unless of course I've completely gotten myself lost in this game.

Thanks!

I have a huge problem with this game on ipad. Maybe all users including PC gamers have encountered this, although no one discuses it in ny other forum.

I built that tool using the coat hanger, pliers, etc., and the game allowed me to USE this tool (for what, I can't remember, as I've been playing the game over a period of several days). Now it seems this tool was supposed to be used to poke a key out of the lock in the upstairs hallway bedroom! I guess you're supposed to put the newspaper down and use the coat hanger tool to poke the key onto the newpaper so you can open the door.

Now of course my coat hanger tool is GONE from my inventory because apparently the game allowed me to use it some place else. I cannot progress in the game without going past this locked door. But I can NEVER get in this door because the tool is no longer in my inventory! Why would the game permit me to use a tool Ian the wrong place?

Is this a technical glitch the game has that you are aware of? Do I really have to reset my progress and start all over again? I don't know how to get to this page again, so maybe you could look up my email and send a reply there? Don't want to post it here...thank you so much.

Thank you for the chapter 2 differences. I will have to try them, as I have been stuck for a while. No billiard room. But also on my iPad, the graphics aren't good. They are pixilated. It came up small and I had to click on 2x to get it to fill the iPad. Does the game think my iPad is an iPhone?

Chapter 4 on iPad is a mess. I put in the lens and looked through the telescope.
I went to the boathouse and fixed the motor.
But the walk-through shows several other HO scenes with tools that I need.
I cannot get to the Lake Park....
No stage coach.....

Please help!

The iPhone version of this game seems glitchy.

I can't turn on the Organ. I've completed the puzzle and inserted the Organ Roller part. But the Organ Handle doesn't move and the Organ doesn't seem to have been fixed.

The walk-through instructions for the computer version states that I can retrieve the Paperclip and Handkerchief once I get the Organ fixed. But no objects have emerged after the I've solved Organ puzzle and placed the Organ part.

Is there something else I need to do with the Organ to get the Paperclip? I'm truly stuck! The Organ Handle doesn't work on the iPhone version!

I'm in the same boat. Any chance you can publish a specific iPhone walk through, or alternately a list of places/items not necessary to complete the game?

Okay.. So im an iphone 4s user for this game. Happy to say i did everything alone for this game unti i gor stuck at... :
1) back in the hse, 2nd flr down the hallway, inside the library, into the secret compartment (at the right where the books are), opening the stairwell down after activating lever at fireplace, i find myself stuck!!! I placed the "Cshape saw at the table to the right and says it requires something to protect me from getting hurt. So obviously i needed a rag or a cloth or something to hold the blade and open the ricketty door that says "the lock bar is thin. You need to cut thru it". The thing is i searched every corner of each room, drawer, chapter, every touchable space of my iphone jus in case stil cant find anything to help me with saw!?!?!?
2) jus at garden, outside hse, i tap right at a single sparkle. It brought me to this scene like the back of the house with a hidden object sparkle (wch i successfully finished) and a chicken with single sparkle. Thing is... I cant tap on chicken. When i do, it freakin walks towards me, vanishes, pops up on the left screen rapidly then goes away?!! Was the chickenimpt to anything?
3) now goin to the windmill area, inside the hse, passing by right door to the fountain area, goin gazebo to the right, then the left gate needs something to barge it open... Cant find any tool for this!!! ???!!!

If you hve no solution for these can i have a refund?!! Im a huge follower of BFG.I even finished rue morgue (se makers-ers) with no prob watsoever. But this game is driving me nuts!!! I just want value for my money. I paid for a proper and decent game. But after reading a couple dozen people at forums and serching at a non-existent walkthrough... I believe you guys from bfg-ers made a bad thing here!!!!

Hi Fishies,

I'm sorry to see there may be some other tech issues coming up with this game on your mobile devices!

In that case, it's definitely best to get in touch with our Mobile Support Team. You can contact them by clicking on the green envelope on the right to get to our Help pages. From there, click "Contact Us" on the left of that screen to submit a support ticket. You can even choose the "Mobile" category there so your message will get to the team that much quicker.

Having a problem with assembling the lock for the chest that's in the gazebo on the island (next to the mannequin). I've got all the lock pieces and was able to place the first piece at the bottom but, the game won't let me place any of the other pieces.

I assume that I should be able to attach them to the bolted areas, like the first piece. I tried every piece on every bolt, but none of the pieces will stay on, let alone trying to rotate them. What am I doing wrong???

I wish I had known before I bought the thing. I have been stuck by the windmill for two days. Very frustrating.

Stuck in chapter 5! No stagecoach, cannot get into boathouse, no steel bar. These differences are really annoying. Not right to sell the game that is full of mistakes. Please help.

 

IPhone Can't find Eagle Statue.

I have been able to figure out most of this game but am stuck. I have been back through all the room two or three times and have all the statues except the Eagle can you tell me which room it's in? I feel now I am just overlooking it at this point.

Thanks!

I knew as soon as I posted this question I would find it. For those that are not so lucky it's in the BOAT HOUSE.
