the fuses in the right order. I really can't figure out which order to put them in without getting killed.
I would appreciate any hints.

I'm not entirely certain I'm answering the correct thing now, but

is this fuses of different colours? Ignore the pattern on the wall and look closely on the wires instead.

last room with the coffee door.I solved the first puzzle but I can't figure out how to solve the other one with the three different shapes.
I would appreciate any hints. I finally figured it out by trial and error.  :grin:

I am glad you are playing, and I hope you are having fun! Now, some tips:


For the room with the blue door marked with a coffee cup:

Spoiler: ShowHide
Each monitor is linked to a button with a symbol next to it. Some of the puzzles out in the range, meanwhile, have the same symbols next to them, and a shape. You will need to backtrack and look at which one is which. Match the right shape with the right symbol.

The puzzle on the right, meanwhile, is to add up the numbers you see in some rooms, and set the monitor to that number, and pull the switch.


Remember: you can always backtrack.

For the room with the plugs and fuses:

Spoiler: ShowHide
Look closely at the wires, particularly the colours, and match them with the right colour fuse.

You can also look at the monitors. All the slots are numbered, with little orange marking. The little boxes next to the shapes on the monitors are pips, meaning one, two, three, et cetera. Compare the shape on the top of the fuse with the right monitor, and then you know which number it is, and which plug to use it on.

It is partly a bit of a red herring (as it is a lot simpler than it looks), but it is also a way to ensure that you can do the puzzle even if you cannot differentiate between the colours, as a fail-safe.


Good luck, and thank you for playing!
