Point and click adventure game.
It is 1929 and "Egyptomania" is all the rage. Adventurers, archaeologists and conmen are swarming to Cairo to feed the publics thirst for pharohs, curses and lost gold. Charles Fox is a journalist whose recent brush with the modern fad for ancient Egypt has left him wary of frauds and imposters. But an intriguing invitation has lured him to a meeting with the curator of Hull Museum. This could be the start of his next big story...

any clues on the number for the safe. think it has got something to do with the telegra as it says 'keep safe' on it and he refers to it

I went back and restarted the level. The journal shows all of the stuff from the 1st time and some new information as well. I don't get it? Nothing changes when you do the level again?

Maybe we have to wait for the rest of the adventure, but this sucks, even though the game is good. Help anyone????

You get the number from the telegram-

Much activity. Many digs 2 hot. Our man is very close but trail exposed. 1 hopes 4 a storm 2 hide us.

Thought I'd let people know incase you need to work stuff out like that in the next chapters.

is there an aten symbol in number 2? if so is the case, does anyone know where it is?

Unregistered
11-08-2005, 17:57:31
The Aten symbol in Episode 2 is on the poster outside of the shop you go to after visiting the 3 sites on the map.

During the Souq chase game in Episode 1, I ran into something in an alley and got a message about finding a piece of the "missing" or "special" photograph. Did anyone find a piece in Episode 2?

Unregistered
11-08-2005, 18:56:43
NVM I found it. It's in the "Ransacked!" screen.

I got 100% on all 4 games, all 4 Athens Symbols, 100% Total Game Score and 100% Knowledge Score, but I only got 5 of the 6 Missing Pictures.
Anyone know where the 6th is? (there's one in the Catacombs game, in a tunnel that leads nowhere right after you find the flammable liquid and the mummified tomb robber)

Unregistered
12-03-2005, 02:35:46

Can anyone tell me how to get out of the escape tunnels in episode 4?

Can't describe exactly how i got out, but i climbed down as far as i possibly could then right and the only way to go was to climb up as far as i could go and then went right a long way. That's it

hm.. somehow i managed to see without the lighter off, it wasn't pitch black but more like dark grey so i could se him crawl away....

how do you catch the thief who stole your map in epi1?
Just run after him forever?

Neith
04-12-2006, 14:53:38
Hi there,
Yep keep one running after him. And keep your eye out for streets that are in a U form so you can catch him when he is running out of the street.

To do the stars:


1. Ignore the blue map with all the constellations.

2. What you want to be focusing on is the Plough (a.k.a. Big Dipper) featured upside down that's in the notes/diary.

3. With the telescope, you have to shift from side to side and look for a bunch on stars that are in the shape of an upside down U or upside down plough. It might take you several minutes to locate this. I have included a picture of what the plough looks like right side up. You should be looking for a pattern to locate this.

4. Then you have to connect the stars in any order by clicking on (a), then (a) --> (b), (b) --> (c), and so on. Some incorrect stars are beside the ones that you need to connect, so watch out!

5. When you have done it correctly, it will automatically highlight what you connected in yellow and you'll know that you did it right.
