The Guides spoiler free walkthrough – Section 3

The Guides spoiler free walkthrough and... guide. By Luke Lisi and Kevin Bradford.

The Guides by Luke Lisi and Kevin Bradford is no cakewalk and can sometimes get quite tough.

Stuck on a puzzle? Need a nudge in the right direction without spoiling the answer? You’re in the right place! If the hint does not help, check out the full list of answers, full of spoilers and explanations of the logic. Without further ado, let’s begin!


Puzzle 3-1 (h)

If you remember how to start Section 2, you’re good here!


Puzzle 3-2 (Part of a reviled plot.)

Those Xs correspond to something! Is there any chance they align with something else on the page?


Puzzle 3-3 (1 2 3 4)

Remember to swipe to the console behind each puzzle every time you select a new letter! If you make an incorrect selection, the puzzle resets to the beginning.


Puzzle 3-4 (1 • 2 • 3 • 4)

Check out the title of the puzzle. Didn’t you just encounter a sequence of numbers that correspond to the letters?


Puzzle 3-5 (Don’t look back now)

Just like the title of the puzzle tells you not to do, check the console behind the puzzle!


Puzzle 3-6 (o)

This one is tough without a hint. Try saving a picture using the in-game screenshot option!


Puzzle 3-7 ([B])

You only have half the picture!


Puzzle 3-8 (r)

Read the message carefully. There are directions there!


Puzzle 3-9 (i)

The directions for the solution are once again in the text of the puzzle itself!


Puzzle 3-10 (z)

Swipe away the puzzle to check out the console and its hint. Have a look at that grid and think of how you call out target squares in a game of Battleships. Then check the puzzle again!


Puzzle 3-11 (calibrate)

Pay close attention to the lines between the outer and the inner ring!


Puzzle 3-12 (LXAADYCRXW)

You don’t need to align anything here. Check the title of the puzzle. You’ll need one of your decoders!


Puzzle 3-13 (It is the key)

Check out the title of the puzzle for a clue!


Puzzle 3-14 (All that’s left…)

Tap on the circles!


Puzzle 3-15 (…is the negative shift)

There’s a large hint for what to do with a code word in the title of the puzzle, but before you even get there you need to figure out what the code word is!
Swipe away the puzzle for the console and try to find the correct pattern in the grid!


Puzzle 3-16 (math =)

The clue in the title of the puzzle is really the only clue you need. You need a numerical answer, but where would you get the numbers from…?


Puzzle 3-17 (o)

You need to pick out a sequence of letters from the puzzle and translate it using a decoder. But which sequence? Is there a clue in the previous puzzle perhaps?
(In fact, there are two clues. One for the letters you need and another for the shift decoder value!)


Puzzle 3-18

You’ll need sound for this one. It’s like Simon Says, without the Simon.


Puzzle 3-19 (sequence)

If you pay attention to the puzzle title during the previous puzzle, it changes every time you press the correct circle!


Puzzle 3-20 (x)

This one is similar to puzzle 2. The numbers at the bottom are somehow related to the text above…


Puzzle 3-21 (n)

Haven’t you seen a grid similar to this in one of the previous puzzles? Perhaps… Puzzle 9?


Puzzle 3-22 (failures)

Swipe away the puzzle to reveal the console underneath. You’ll find a list of failures with equipment on some device. Perhaps a device we encountered once before? Perhaps as far back as… Section 2?


Puzzle 3-23 (key = sum(TRUE))

Swipe the puzzle away to the side and check out the console. There’s a pretty big hint here! You’ll need two decoders for this one.


Puzzle 3-24 (inverse function)

This one’s fairly tough. The hints are: the puzzle title and puzzle 17.


Puzzle 3-25 ([A])

The title of the puzzle is the big hint here. Isn’t it related to a puzzle we encountered earlier in this section? I can’t really give any more hints than that without being obvious. You’ll need the shift decoder again, the value for which is hinted at in the green console text.
