Great game and it lets you skip. I could not finish the ID Card for Goden Cats. Got to the part ready to stamp and finish and could not figure what to do. Please explain when any of ya'll get there please. I think this is a re-player. Entertaining and challenging

Love this game!!! Great story, wonderful art (the little comic book captions are sweeeet!), amazing voice talent. The mini-game style puzzles are either unique or a a very well-engineered version of the usual. Adventure style puzzles range from clever to "Oh my gawd!" pulling-your-hair-out hard. (Which makes them very satisfying to solve.)

This is the first game since RTR and Redrum to really pull me in. Every little aspect of it is just a notch above. Bravo!

I am stuck at the door to the apt of Nick's friend. I found the key and it is in the lock. I know how to make the first move, get the top of the three deadbolts unlocked. I have unlocked the second one and I can't duplicate it. I have been nowhere near getting the third lock undone to open the door.

Any suggestions?

Put the clock hands on similar numbers- like 5 and LV and push the red button

Hi dehdahdoh - welcome to the forums!

After you get the first one, turn the knob two or three times and click the handle, then turn the knob a few more times and click the handle again. I don't recall exactly how many turns for each, but remember to start over if it's incorrect.

Hope this helps

Absolutely love this game, Nice change from the usual Hidden Object games. Graphics are cool, love the storyline and the comic book style. The puzzles range from simple to challenging. Just trying to figure out what to do to complete the task alone is sometimes a challenge. Glad I bought the game. Wish it was longer. Would love to see more!! Thanks for a great game BF.

I think it was a green one, but not sure- careful... you blow up if you click on the wrong one

Regarding gold card: Did you remember to put the space stamp between the two words?

Thanks Prpl, I'll try green. Yes i have blown up several times.
I really am enjoying this game, I would say it's biggest draw back (other then being a little short) Is that you can't start where you left off. You have to start at the beging of that chapter.
Thanks again Prpl

Hi Carmen, welcome to the Pond. You can only turn the taps/valves off when they are cool, ie when they no longer have 'steam' keeping them hot. Start at the top and turn a tap off tthis will stop a small amount of steam, wait a while for that to take effect and then click another tap which is also out of the steam. Continue doing this until all taps are turned off and you can safely walk to the elevator. (There are temperature gauges dotted about but I didn't bother with them so I do not know whether they actually show the 'cool taps' or not.)
