Castle

Enter the barn and talk to Bobby. Back outside, take note of the blue banner hanging above the castle entrance, then go inside to the throne room. Look at the floor mosaic and the wall mosaic, then look at the shield up on the balcony. Use Leaf Spot on the shield, then change to Ball Spot to reveal a chain. Now move the tapestry to the left and pull the lever that is revealed. Try to exit through the doorway, but it closes before you have a chance. Pull the lever again, then quickly move the tapestry and put your stick in the chain. Now you can head out to the balcony.

Climb the stairs here and you will reach the astrolab. Talk to the astronomer, but you cannot understand him. Look at the encyclopedias in the bookshelf to the left. Move the books on the 2nd shelf so they are in the correct order (A-G, H-N, O-U, V-Z). Now talk to the astronomer about everything. Pick up the chalk from upstairs, then go down and collect the moon ornament, crank, key and rapper (from the side of the bookshelf).

Return down to the throne room. Use your new key on the lock next to the throne, then search the secret compartment to get pliers, a handsaw and a crowbar. Use the crowbar on the floor mosaic to lift up the loose mosaic tile. Use this tile on the wall mosaic. Solve the two adjacent 9-piece sliding tile puzzles to recreate the insignia from the banner out on the balcony. Once you are done, insert your loose mosaic tile into the gap at the bottom, and you will realise it needs to be painted light royal blue.

Head outside to the courtyard and use your rapper on the door at the base of the tower, then go inside to find a laboratory. Take the empty flask, and place it beneath the blender at the very bottom on the left. You need to adjust the various blenders to create an appropriate starting blue color. Set the valves as follows:

Take the bucket, then return to the laboratory. Open the chest here and take the mortar and pestle from inside. Use this on your chalk, then put the chalk powder into your bucket of water. Combine this with the flask of blue paint to make light royal blue. Now use this on your mosaic tile and it will have the correct color.

Return to the throne room and save your game. Now use your tile on the wall mosaic and place it in the empty slot Shove Off! If you want to get all achievements, reload your game and use your mosaic tile on the wall mosaic, then select to skip the mini-game by clicking the red X button at the top right.

Take the bone hand from the round cage, then attach you edged moon ornament to the bone stump. Use the pantaloons from your inventory on the hook hanging to the right. Place Normal Spot in the pantaloons. Climb into the small cage, then change to Ball Spot. Now get out of the cage and take the olives from the fallen olive branch. Leave the dungeon and go back outside to the laboratory.

Save your game, then put the olives into the large glass bulb on the right. Use Fire Spot to heat up the large glass bulb, and olive oil will start flowing through the pipes. Now you need to rotate the pipes to direct the flow of oil up to the flask in the window. There are two corks that you can use to plug holes; if you turn pipes so the corks aren't needed temporarily, they will appear on the table so you can pick them up from there Tubelicious! If you want to get all achievements, reload your game and start the mini-game by using the olives and Fire Spot on the large glass bulb, then select to skip the mini-game by clicking the red X button at the top right. You will now get an achievement if you have used the skip feature for all 4 mini-games Saving Time. Use Five Spot on the flask in the window to knock it down.

Go outside, then into the barn and look in the cow's trough. Use your bucket on the cow to get the oil, then pick up the cord. Now return to the dungeon. Use Fire Spot on the brazier on the right. Use your handsaw on the rack to make a hole, then push the brazier behind the rack. Next use your pliers on the bed of nails, and you will end up collecting 4 nails. Put Leaf Spot on the rack and you will automatically nail him in place. In your inventory, combine the pliers, bone hand and tether cord, then use this combination of items on Spot to retrieve the Whispering Stone.

Leave the dungeon, and go out to the balcony, then up to the astrolab. Try to pour oil from your bucket into the grease tube on the left of the machine; the astronomer tells you to use a funnel. Go up the stairs and use your nails on the blackboard, then pick up the ear trumpet. Use this on the grease tube, then pour in the oil from your bucket. Now attach your Whispering Stone to the console of the machine. Talk to the astronomer about the stones/planets again, then look at the blackboard. Now go and read the encyclopedia on the top shelf to get some clues about the planets.

Go all the way to the laboratory in the base of the tower and look at the periodic table to the right of the doorway. Return to the astrolab. Now using the information you have gathered, start with the bottom position (where you just inserted the Whispering Stone) and put the colored stones as follows going in a clockwise manner:

  • Yellow (Pornitus)
  • Red (Vernicus)
  • Purple (Avrius)
  • Green (Frobble)
  • Blue (Silentia)

Use your crank on the gearbox to the left, and the water will start flowing. After Spot transforms, talk to the astronomer about everything. Use your empty flask on the flowing fountain. Use your crank on the exposed cogwheels in the base of the machine and time will stop. Head outside.

Broken World

After the conversation, go into the throne room. Talk to Loucaux and you will be thrown in the dungeon. Talk to the messenger. Try to take the pebbles from the window ledge, but you cannot reach them. Talk to the dungeon door and ask for a different cell. Now you can take the pebbles. Use the pebbles on the messenger, and you cage will be moved again. Now pick up the stone wedge. Use the stone wedge on the pulley above the messenger's cage, then throw pebbles at him again.

Pick up the flask and Spot's cocoon. Get back into the cage and it will return up to the dungeon. Pick up the crowbar, then talk to the dungeon door and ask to see Loucaux. Ask to be his clown, then say you can burp the alphabet, and spell out L-O-U-C-A-U-X. Head outside and search the monster's saddlebag to get some bombs. Talk to the guard about everything, then go back inside and head up to the balcony. Use your crowbar on the hoses.

Go out to the balcony and up to the astrolab. Use your crowbar on the telescope and you will automatically get a shard of glass. Use this on the astronomer to free him, then pick up the rope. Use the rope on the funnel to get it covered in oil. Combine the rope with the bombs. Take the funnel, then head back up to the telescope. Put the bombs into the telescope. Add the funnel and then Spot's cocoon. Finally, use your glass shard on the beam of light coming in through the window.

Returned Light

Go through the door on the other side of the balcony. Try to cross the bridge and it will break. Talk to Loucaux when he confronts you, then use your flask on the rain drain next to you. After you are saved, pick up Grandpa's pantaloons, then enter the King's spire. Use the pantaloons with the mirror. Try to use your crowbar to break the left mirror 10 times Mirror, Mirror. Now use your crowbar to break the right mirror The Boy in the Mirror.
