Welcome to Safecracker. Your job is to crack all the safes in this house. They are built on logical puzzles and lots of trying, so if you enjoy that you are at the right place. This guide will provide you with lots of information on how to crack most of the puzzles, but getting there still can be pretty tricky. Just don't give up, every puzzle is solvable. Its a good idea to save before trying a puzzle. When you feel the puzzle is very screwed up, simply exit the screen and re-enter it, your puzzle will be reset to the original state. So don't leave the screen unless you really want to.

The various pictures you might find here, show you the solution of the safe. So if the text is not helpful enough, the picture should tell you everything you need to know.

Small corridor

When you enter the game turn to your right and click forward twice.

This is the room called small corridor. To your left is a bolted door (you can open it from the other side, inside the museum) but for now straight ahead is your first safe. It has two green, two red and two blue dots on it. The buttons move the dots over the surface. You can see the rings on the surface, that's how it works, the dots move on those rings. To solve it you need to get the same colored dots in the outer areas. The two green ones have to be in the top left corner, the blue ones in the top right and the red ones on the bottom.

When you opened it you find two things inside. The first thing is a Resistor (you will need multiple parts for another puzzle) and a piece of paper. On that paper is a number: 4298. This is the code to enter the main building part. Turn around, walk through the small sitting room back to the hall. Turn right and walk up to the door. To your right is an access panel. Simply type in the code 4298 we found in that other safe and enter the house. Turn to your right and enter the door.

Museum

The Dollarsign Safe

First turn to your right there is a door there leading back to the small corridor, open it so its easier for you to move around. Then turn your attention to the safe very close to that door. The door has a pattern on it that's scrambled. You can move the pieces by clicking the points at the edges of each piece and it will move all 4 pieces around it. You have to recreate a dollar sign on that door to get it to open. Its not only the dollar sign, but it also has two rounded dashes in the top left and lower right corner. This is not an easy puzzle as you have not much of a clue how it looks like. But when you go to the menu, you an see there next to the phone a card with a dollar sign and those rounded dashes. So that should help for that. The other thing is that i saw people having problems in the endgame, getting all in place but the last 4 to 6 pieces. Here is the trick. First do the upper row, that's 3 squares with something in it and the squares to the right most are empty. Do the next row. Now make sure you have all the other empty squares (only 3 left) somewhere on the left side. Now to the right most column that's left over then the one next to it. Now you only have to fix the remaining 3 by 3 field in the lower left corner. The trick is that the empty fields can be placed wherever you want to, they are not different from each other, so try to fix the upper row and right most column of that grid and you should be simply left over with the last piece and 3 empty squares, that will fall into place fast.

The pieces are always in the same position when you start out. So with this guide you can beat it blind. First there are 16 points that move the pieces about. I number them 1 to 16, where the first row is 1 to 4, second row 5 to 8, third row 9 to 12 and the last one 13 to 16. Just click the points in the sequence, multiple times if named multiple times, and you will solve it. Here is the sequence: 16, 11, 11, 6, 6, 4, 4, 3, 6, 6, 6, 1, 6, 1, 1, 8, 7, 7, 3, 7, 7, 4, 4, 8, 8, 16, 11, 11, 6, 6, 6, 11, 11, 10, 9, 9, 12, 12, 11, 10, 10, 5, 5, 12, 12, 12, 11, 13, 13, 14, 15, 16, 16, 9, 11, 10, 11, 10, 10, 15, 11, 10, 10, 13, 13, 9, 9, 10, 14, 9, 10, 13, 13, 13. If the picture does not appear, you made a mistake and have to begin again. You should see the picture clarify over time, starting at the top, then top right corner, then the top two rows, then the right outer columns then the rest. There might be an easier and faster way, i just noted down one way to do it.

With the safe open, take the paper out, that says L=E. Now pull the lever in the lower compartment. Three panels rise up. Each of those panels need solving. Right in front of you (near the safe) is a number pad with a 4 digit code. Near the window is a "Soduko" style puzzle with currency and next to the door to the Winter garden is a "eat up" puzzle.

The window puzzle is pretty easy. You have to place the symbols so on each row and each column is each symbol only once. It will look like this (E = euro, Y = yen, S = dollars and L = pound):

E Y L S
L S E Y
S L Y E
Y E S L

The puzzle next to the winter garden door is easy once you know the rules. The white dot eats the dark ones. It can only go straight, not diagonal and it can only eat the one right next to it or one further away from it, and it doesn't matter if the field in between is empty or full. So follow this guide and you will eat up all 25 spots: One down, one right, two up, one right, two right, one down, one left, two down, one right, two down, two down, one up, one right, two left, two left, one left, one left, one down, two right, one right, two up, one up, two left, one up, two down.

The third panel with the access code you don't know yet and don't have yet, so just leave it at that. Leave through the winter garden, go across the room into the Main Sitting room.

Main Sitting Room

With the paper you got from the museum safe, you can now crack this puzzle. Go to the safe in the left wall. Adjust the dial in the middle so the L from the inner part lines up with the E from the outer part. Now you can start deciphering the text that's written on the lower end. You translate from the inside tho the outside. So the inside Z is the outside S and so on. Here is the whole thing:

ZPE MVBY VUL ADV
SIX FOUR ONE TWO

As you can see, i spaced it out a little there are numbers you need, 6 4 1 2. Get the picture and the circuit.

Cross the Main sitting room room and enter the study. Straight ahead is the puzzle you have to solve now (glowing red).

Study

The Magnetbox

The puzzle box here is not easy. The ball on the plate is attracted by magnets on the sides. If it falls over the edge you have to start over. You have the magnets for up, down, left and right. You can only reach the hole in the right lower area, the others are impossible to reach. Here is which magnets you have to hit in sequence to beat it: up, right, down, left, down, right, down, left, up, right, up, right, up, right, down, right, down, left, up, right, down.

The box opens and you get a 4 pin circuit.

Return to the Museum and go through the door on the left into the office.

Office

Ignore the panel on the right wall for now but look at the one to your left. Its a 4 by 4 grid with buttons that have arrows on it. The red button in the lower right corner is where you have to press to get this thing going, but its covered by a protective glass. To open it you have to press all buttons in a sequence. If you clicked around you will notice sometimes the buttons stay down and when you click another one they pop up again. Staying down is what you want.

First you need the starting point. That's one up and one to the left of the red button. Its a single arrow to the left. This also shows you the trick of this thing. Choose the button indicated on the button you just pressed. In this example, a single left arrow, press the button directly to the left of this one. Now this one is a double arrow down. So press the button not right below, but the second below this button. This way you should not have any problems getting through the whole sequence and you can press the last button. A laser beam will appear above you. Follow the beam and you see something at the ceiling where the beam stops. Its a mirror, click it and the beam will go across the room. Go across the room to the globe, there is another mirror up there, click it too. Now the beam hits the globe there and it opens. Take the Transistor out that is hit by the beam.

Now you should have all parts to repair the panel in the office. Go the the door and click the panel. It will peel up and you can put in parts. The resistor will go to the right next to the other two vertical resistors. The Transistor goes to the left of that yellow round thing (that also is a transistor). Add the other two components and the panel opens the door. Go through the door into the workshop.

Workshop

The first safe we want is in the corner to the left. You see a dangling key pad from it with a note 5841 on it. That's the code. The problem is, the keypad doesn't do what it should. Each key has a sequence of 5 numbers it repeats, but never the one labeled. So once you know the sequences its easy, you have to prime the numbers first then enter the code. Here is the table that displays you which key has what sequence. It starts with he first number that appears when you press the keys from starting the puzzle fresh. The first row is the keypad number, below in the column are the numbers it will conjure up.

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
2 6 7 2 6 7 3 9 6
7 8 5 8 7 5 6 7 8
9 4 5 9 4 1 5 6 1
4 3 2 2 3 2 2 5 3
8 1 5 7 2 9 4 4 6

As you can see there are multiple ways to get there, here is one of them. Just enter the following codes in sequence and in the end the display will show you 5841, the code you needed: 3266, 3226.

The safe will open and you get the red magnetic card.

Return to the study and turn to your left to the door. Enter the card into the slot and look at the panel. 3, 4 and 8 are lighter (more used?) so the combination must be something like that. Enter 834 and the door will open. Go straight though the service stairs into the dining room.

Dining Room

Turn left and you will see a red dot under a painting. Click it and you will get the message there is a safe there. Turn to your left and you see 4 paintings on the wall. Check the picture you have from the Main sitting room safe. Now rearrange the pictures to match the photograph.

Move the very left picture to the very right. Now move the picture from the middle to the very left and exchange the positions of the last two pictures. The safe opens and you get a letter. There it states that the laser will open it by 8 nm under the color of a buttercup (yellow). Return to the workshop.

Workshop second visit

The safe to your left, left of the broken keypad one, opens with a laser. If you put it at 593 its red, if you turn it to 592 its yellow. At 584 it opens up. You get a small gold key and a T shaped key. Exit the workshop, turn left in the museum and go straight through the small corridor (first room with a puzzle you solved) turn right into the small sitting room and use the T shaped key on the safe there. Take the piston, then go through the winter garden and main sitting room to the service stairs, then up the stairs.

Kitchen

Turn left behind you is the dumb waiter. Keep hitting up until its at the top most position. Then simply hit once down, and once up, repeat that and it will level in the perfect position. Get the special pipe key. Go down the stairs and again down into the basement.

Basement

Best Solution

To your right is a switch for light. A very easy puzzle. Simply turn all switches so that they point upwards.

Wine cellar

Go straight and turn to your right. Go to the puzzle at the wall. You have to do a special path from the top left to the right upper side (where its a bit more to the right than any other lights). The rules are simple. You have to trace a path there, but for one, you have always a green light and then an unlit one in between. Also you cannot go around a corner unless the green light is exactly in the corner. You have to place 23 lights for this puzzle to solve, so i will guide you through it to where the next light is going to be placed. You will notice fast when it changes or a corner is made: down, down, down, down, right, up right, up right, down, down, right, down, right, up, up, up, up left, up left, up left, right, down right, right and right.

You get the brass key and the GPS key card.

Store room

Turn around and go straight then turn right. There is some sort of machine. Place the piston you got from upstairs into the middle position. Now access the panel on the right hand machine. The goal is to fill the middle piston to the marking (4 marks). Here is how to solve it: Large to medium, medium to small, small to large, medium to small, large to medium, medium to small. The fountain will start running, but we are not ready for this yet. Instead go up, through the dining room and use the brass key on the door there.

Second floor

Enter the main Staircase and go up the stairs. Turn right (unbolt the door to the kitchen ahead) and right again and go down the corridor. To your right is a laser door. Use the special pipe key on the access panel and you see wires. If you look closely they resemble numbers. The priority is regulated by which one is on top. You should see the number 2493 after a bit looking and type it into the pad that will open the laser door.

Yellow Room

This is the one behind the laser door. Go to the table and then, simply switch that thing off to the left. The safe will open. You get the snooker rules and the green magnetic card (for the game room). Lets go there then.

Turn around into the corridor (straight is the blue room, we go there later). Turn left back to the stairs keep going then turn left where you can see the billiard table.

Games room

Go to the machine at the other end of the wall. It looks like some racing thing. Enter the GPS card and turn the key. Now you have to drive through the virtual map on the screen, although nothing changes. So simply hit the directions as follows: right, left, right, right, left, right, left, left, right, left. The machine will spit out a piece of paper with 6821 on it. Before we pay attention to that, lets try something else.

Go to the panel on the wall. There is a key card slot for the green key card you have to enter. The code is not what you got from the paper, its different. Take a look at the table (walk around it and note which balls are in the pockets). Now check the snooker rules. You should notice two red ones missing and the green and the black. So the code is (according to their points) 1137. Take the Lever and the Fountain Plug.

Go down to the museum.

Museum clean up

Go to the remaining panel we didn't solve yet. Enter the code from upstairs, 6821. Next comes a puzzle that seems hard but gets pretty easy done. All rows and columns (and diagonal through the middle) have to sum up to 15. The end result has to look like that:

4 3 8 
9 5 1
2 7 6

Wiht only 4 moves you can get there too: third row right, first row left, third column down, first column up.

The door in the games room that was locked is now open. But lets go to the winter garden first.

Winter Garden

Put the fountain plug in the floor where there is the hole. Now comes the second part of the puzzle. Each plug has three holes. Only one of those holes will make it sprinkle to the center and raise the key up. You can change the hole by stepping to another position. Best way is to do the one on the other side of the missing plug first, then do the others, as there you can simply exit to another room and reenter without problems. Once all four sides are sprinkling into the center the key rises and you can grab it. Now head up back to the games room and through the door into the library.

Library

Go to the left wall. There is a safe with a note there that says "Call Sarah". Go to the blue bedroom or easier call up the menu. You see on the phone in either case letters (not like on a normal phone). Spelling SARAH on there gives you the code 86265 which will open that save and give you the small wheel.

Leave the room turn left and into the corridor, to your left is a locked door. You should have all the key for it on you. Enter.

Violet Bedroom

Go to the left and look close at the thing on the dresser. Use the small golden key on it, then take the small iron key and key card reader and screen from it. Return to the blue bedroom.

Blue bedroom

Use the small iron key on the machine there to turn it on. You have to guess the code in 5 tries. See the four lights? Red means totally wrong. Flashing green means right number, but wrong position. Solid green means right number and right position. To make it easier, the last number is always 9. Write down so you wont make mistakes. Start with 1239 and see what lights up. If for example the first two are solid green (the last one will be anyways) then the third one will be red, as a solid miss. So you need to find the last number, it could be 1249, 1259, 1269, 1279 and 1289. No number is repeated so after a few tries you should get it. The code resets every time you take too many tries. In a case above, you know for sure that 1 and 2 will be right, so try codes like 4569 and then see on which number it might light up to find it within the limit. With that knowledge your best approach is to enter first 1234 and then 5678. If the fourth light is not blinking you can eliminate 4 and 8 from the code. The others might already have a hit on number and position, or at least on the numbers. Also when its blinking it measn that number cant be there. So in the fourth try you should have the code at the latest.

You get a golden chip card and a letter from Margaret. In it she calls him Walter, seems to be his middle name.

Go back to the library.

Library revisited

Go to the safe on the right. Attach the screen unit to the safe. Now it shows the code in fragments below. One thing to note is that every time you get a number right in the right spot, a bar moves. It doesn't say anything about the position though. Trying all digits (each time 4 times the same number) shows you quickly that only the numbers 6, 7, 8 and 9 are in that code. Using that knowledge we can assert where each one is. Considering how the numbers look we can also make a few good guesses. 7 can only be in second position. 6 cannot be 1st or 3rd, because of the upper right bars, so it must be fourth. 8 and 9 could be either. So the code is 8796 and you get a triple key for that.

Go down to the workshop.

Workshop revisited

Go to the big safe straight ahead and insert the golden chip card. Now you have 6 dials. You can spell the name WALTER with that. Put the dials in these position (top row left to right then lower row left to right): LTR AWE. The door opens and you can enter the boudoir.

Boudoir

Starting Position
End Position

Go to the safe and look at it closely. Take the round thing on the left, that's a magnet. With it you can pull the pieces inside around, but only in the direction they are laying in (lengthwise). Your goal is to get the key out to the right side.

To direct you in moving the pieces, i numbered them, from 1 to 12. The numbers start in the top left corner. The piece below the first one is 2, now the next number is again at the top in the next column. If it gets a number is decided by the position of its left most edge. The key is block 4, the big block thats vertical (3 units big) is 10. Refer to the picture for clarification. Number 3 has to get to the lower end of the screen, number 6 to the upper area and number 9 needs to be moved one to the left so you can get the key out in the end. Each direction mentioned is always to the full extend, as far as it can go. Here is a step by step description: 2 down, 5 left, 8 down, 4 right, 3 down, 7 left, 10 up, 11 up, 12 up, 9 right, 8 down, 5 right, 3 down, 5 left, 4 left, 8 up, 9 left, 12 down, 5 right, 1 down, 8 down, 7 right, 1 up, 4 left, 6 up, 9 left, 5 left, 10 down, 8 down, 11 down, 7 right, 6 up, 4 right, 6 down, 7 left, 11 up, 4 right.

And there you have another triple key. Go upstairs to the vault door.

Vault door

Insert the small wheel in the vault door. Now each of the 5 handles controls a few of the bolts. Every time you turn a wheel, it will move more than one bolt. Every second turn is a different movement, but they repeat that all the time. If the bolt is completely in and you do a movement that would close it more, locks the bolt again. I found a very easy way to do it. Ignore the right hand wheels. Turn the top left wheel 4 times, then the middle wheel 3 times then the bottom wheel 7 times and its unlocked. Enter the closet and take the ladder up to the loft.

Loft

Chessboard

Go to the puzzle to your right first. Insert the lever on that hole on the side and the grate will open. Now you have a chessboard kind of thing. It cannot have two sunken boxes on the same row, column or diagonal. So you have to click the boxes accordingly. The basic hints are the queen symbol on the left and the 6 on the right. You need to place so to speak 6 queens so they cannot attack any of the other queens.

Solving it is very easy. Click the black square in the bottom row, the one form the left side (second column lowest row). Now go one row up and two to the side. Click that one and repeat that (this one is in the right most column, third row form the bottom up). Now go one row up from this field and click the left most column box, and repeat the pattern, one row up, two columns over. The last one should be in the first row, second last column. You get a triple key.

Turn around and take on the next safe.

Pipes

This one needs to create a loop through the pipe system so its green all over and runs back on itself. It's not really hard, just follow the path to the left and try to connect them together logically (follow the flow). In the end it will need a couple of adjustments in the upper left corner and you will get it fast. You get a carved block.

Go down to the dressing room, next to the blue bedroom.

Dressing Room

Go to the wall safe and put the carved block in. Its a polybius square, using the numbers for finding the position of the letter. Its read from left then from the top, so 12 is B and so on. Decoding the whole thing it tells you ONE TWO SIX FIVE which is the code 1265. Enter it and the door will open and you have the last Triple key.

Last safe

Go to the violet room and unlock the doors with all triple keys. Enter and you find the secret room with the final safe. The combination is a bit tricky. Each of the four rooms (violet, yellow, toilet next to vault, dressing room) has a metal plate mounted on a door. Copy what you see on that, and overlaying them all will give you the last code. To save you running around, its 3528.

Well that's it.

As to whom you give it to, well that's up to you. Sarah and James will do their best, the rest will end in squandering. Except if you give it to yourself. Your choice, doesn't really influence anything though.
