Everything in this game is designed to be part of the puzzle, from the colours, to the shapes, to the position they are in, to the sounds they make. You will need many different skills to complete the level. A codebook is provided to help you with things such as Morse code and Semaphore puzzles but mostly you have to work things out for yourself.
There are levels of complexity to each room which is revealed as you progress through the game, as each room has more than one puzzle to solve. You may find a pen and paper handy. There is a written walkthrough available if you get stuck, but you will get the best out of this game if you work out the codes yourself.
