You accidentally dropped your keys into a metal tube while doing some DIY work. To get out, you need to retrieve that key by finding, using and combining items. Good luck :)

03-08-2008, 03:44:47
I did it without help too YAY :D

The alarm scared me!

03-08-2008, 07:20:02
I have match, sponge, magnet, screwdriver and hammer. I am missing one thing, and I'm not sure what it is. I'm also missing what to do with the items I have.
Ok, I attached the magnet to the sponge and dropped both into the tube with the key, broke the light, lit the match (I hit the mute on my volume, so I'm just going to take your word on the noise). ;) Stuck again. Never mind. Finally figured it out. Wonderful game, and challenging. Thanks for all your help, sort of. ;)

03-08-2008, 19:43:43
Out without help either. Game was good.

03-08-2008, 19:58:48
can someone give me a hint as to where to get the magnet?

EDIT: got it.. thank you very much!

03-08-2008, 20:02:03
can someone give me a hint as to where to get the magnet?

click around what looks like a broken cell phone behind the tube. It took me a little while to get it.

03-08-2008, 20:16:17
Yeah! I'm out. Thanks for the tip on where to find the magnet!!!

03-08-2008, 20:25:25

I have to agree that
it was an easy one...

04-23-2008, 03:17:59
I swear I clicked all over that silly phone thing on the floor before I finally had to look at the hint on where to find that darn magnet!!!

04-23-2008, 03:35:52
I missed playing this one. The link on post 1 is not working for me.

04-23-2008, 03:56:55
Hmm...I''m using Firefox and it works for me, but let me see if I can find an alternate link for you. ;)

EDIT: I've added an alternate link to the lead post. :) I hope that helps, RBS. :D

04-23-2008, 04:01:08
Thank you for taking the time to do that. :flower:

04-23-2008, 04:01:57
My pleasure. :hug2: Let me know if that link works. :) *accepts the flower. :$* Thank you.

04-23-2008, 04:02:21
Lol, Escape beats me. :haha: Thanks Escape. :) I found the same alternative link. ;)

I hope the new link works for you, RBS. :)

04-23-2008, 04:02:57
Cat-like speed, dear amiga!! :haha: ;)

04-23-2008, 04:09:33
Hi Adventure, I didn't forget you :flower:

Rebooted and now its working fine...my computer got tired I guess.

04-23-2008, 04:31:30
Great to hear that!!! Enjoy. :)

04-23-2008, 04:34:51
@Escape, lol, I know. :haha: If it's not alien speed that beats me, it's the cat speed that does. :P ;)

Aww, how kind of you, RBS, thanks. :) Glad the reboot helped. :D

Well, I am off. The birds already started to sing. Good night to you both. :fol:

04-23-2008, 05:12:23
Could use a nudge on where the screwdriver is. I have the hammer, match, sponge and magnet combo in the tube

I read the spoiler aboutbreaking the light but the hammer won't break it so I am guessing thats what the screwdriver will be for

04-23-2008, 05:22:14
@RBS....Check all shelves very closely. ;)

Goodnight Adventure!! Sweet dreams. :hug2:

04-23-2008, 05:28:27
woo hoo I am out. Thanks EscapeG. That was one you should be proud of to have done without help. :wink:

04-23-2008, 05:32:57
Congrats, RBS!!! :appl: :D And thanks. :shy: :D

08-02-2008, 17:16:11
Thanks for the hints you guys. I got stuck a little about the magnet. I thought it was gonna be like those big ones in the other ones. I am out and how did this guy get his key down there? Weird. Also weird is for the fire alarm to do that.

08-02-2008, 18:26:52
out .. noisy

08-03-2008, 00:20:07
yay i'm out, i needed that hint about the screwdriver, i couldn't find it anywhere :P hehe and then it all slotted into place and actually made sense :D nice game i think

08-03-2008, 18:18:33
That was fun and yea kinda easy but still did it have to be so loud and flashy?? :(

08-13-2008, 22:55:38
Is anybody around to help me out?

08-14-2008, 05:04:25
Nice game. Got out without any help, yay me!

But anyway...
If you post what you need help on, then someone will likely give you a spoiler.

08-19-2008, 23:06:05

08-20-2008, 12:12:18
...yay..!! i am out.. nice game...:panda2:

08-20-2008, 16:08:29
Yay, out :D nice game!

08-20-2008, 16:37:52
I have done the thing with sponge and magnet and broke the lamp.

Nevermind Got it!

11-12-2008, 20:16:15

no use for it!!

11-12-2008, 22:19:19
