Chapter 1

Section 1

Look at the small pedestal and pick up the relic (1/6). Back out and approach the device to the right. Turn the yellow handle either clockwise or anticlockwise until the structure to the right is fully raised, then head through the gate.

Section 2

Touch the large blue plant at the bottom left, and the glowbutt will fly over to the bridge. Break a couple of nearby pots. While you are at it, break as many other pots as you can see here, and in all other sections to gather these achievements:

  • Break 5 pots Aspiring Pot Breaker
  • Break 15 pots Superior Pot Smasher

Approach the left dial and turn the handle to the left to charge up the blue crystal on the right. Now go to the bridge controls and slide the handle to the far right. Head to the right dial and turn the handle to the right. Now continue through the opened gate.

Section 3

Touch the 5 large blue plants in order to move the glowbutt to the far right. Break the 3 pots on the right and pick up the pipe that is revealed. Look at the red pattern in the background, then approach the hexagon. Click on the yellow segments to turn them blue so that they match the red pattern you just saw, then go through the gate.

Section 4

Touch the nearest blue plant, then pick up the relic (2/6) hidden behind it. Touch the 3 blue plants in the far left, and note the harp image behind them. Come out to the main controls and adjust the left lever so that gold bar is in the second space from the top (matching the harp image you just saw).

Examine the puzzle at the far right. Click on the various buttons until you have generated a complete path from right to left, then take another relic (6/6). Back out and go through the gate in the far left.

Section 5

Break 2 pots near the bottom and pick up the bucket, then fill it from the well. Look at the trapped animal on the right, then back out again. Examine the puzzle near the middle of the area. Drag your charger to the far left to charge up the yellow crystal. Aim the top laser to the other crystal on the far right, and position the charger beneath the small fixed connector just right of the middle. Now slide the yellow crystal just to the right. Collect the next relic (5/6). In your inventory, poke this relic 15 times This Is Fun!.

Back out and grab one of the glowing plants from the bottom left. Now approach the handle to the far right. Pour water into the container on the left, and put your glowing plant in the pot. Go back to where you got the glowing plant, and use your bucket to get some soil. Go and pour this on the plant you just put in the pot, and it will come back to life. Now push the lever up, and you will be able to see two more images, of a drum and a weapon. Return through the gateway on the left.

Section 4

Go to the main controls and adjust the middle lever so the gold bar is over the 3rd space from the bottom (matching the drum image from Section 5). Adjust the right lever so the gold bar is over the top space (matching the sword image from Section 5). Grab the hook that dangles from the vine above, and combine it with your pipe to make a large lever, then go through the far left gate.

Section 5

Go over to the animal and use the lever on the fallen pillar, then pull it down Best Friend. Return to the left again.

Section 4

Go through the left gateway.

Section 3

Switch to Skrii, then go through the small crack in the rock in the background.

Section 6

Head over to the glowbutt, which will fly away when you get too close. Examine the machine to the right. Point the bottom laser to the left, then adjust the top laser and left large disc so you can charge the bottom left crystal. Now point the bottom laser to the top right, spin the right disc and charge the far left crystal. Use this with the left disc to charge the far top right crystal. Spin the right disc to charge the far bottom right crystal. Point the bottom laser to the right, then spin the right disc to charge the bottom right crystal - you will end up trapping the glowbutt in a cage Glowbutt Hunter. Go and pick it up, then return to the left.

Section 3

Go through the right gateway.

Section 4

Approach the right pedestal and place the glowbutt on it. Now you can cross the bridge and head through a new gateway.

Section 7

Pick up the relic (4/6) leaning against the stone on the right. Now examine the machine in the middle of the area. The main slider at the bottom rotates the central device so you can see 4 different sides. Leave the laser on the first side pointing to the left. On the second side, turn the laser to charge up the left crystal, then leave it aimed at the right crystal. Return to the first side, and slide the yellow connector to the middle. On the third side, drag the yellow connector down to line up with the pipe going to the left. On the fourth side, move the pieces around to charge up the central crystal, then move them to connect to the top left. Press the top right button on the first side and quickly turn the laser to point up, charging the receiver.

After the conversation, examine the new puzzle that has appeared. Drag the pieces around to connect the source at the top with the receiver from the bottom. Grab the final relic (3/6) Void Breaker. Now go through the portal First Chapter.

Section 12

Talk to Kanatha to receive a relic (7/12). Look at the desk in the back right.

Now pull down the left lever and grab the "wart-screecher". Go back outside.

Section 5

Continue to the left.

Section 4

Talk to everyone, then put all three items into the receptacle (in any order) and head inside Second Chapter.

Chapter 3

Section 1

Talk to everyone. Smash the crates on the ground and pick up the flower hidden behind it. Look inside the room to the left. Open the drawer and collect a relic (1/8), then talk to Kanatha. Open the small cupboard straight ahead and take the key from inside, then back out of the room. Examine the chest on the right and unlock it with the key. Open the lid to find a rope and another relic (5/8).

Follow the path to the right and collect another flower, then come back to the first area. Insert a flower into each of the air purifiers. Now examine the large puzzle in front of the crashed rocket. There are three sides to this, which can be viewed using the main slider on the right. On the first side, rotate the laser to point upwards. On the next side, direct the flow of power to the right and charge up the crystal here. Slide the crystal to the right, and it will also charge the crystal to the left. Slide the left crystal to the right to charge the 3rd crystal. Now push the yellow button to charge the receiver.

You will now receive a keycard, with a white pattern on the back. Approach the hexagon in the background and recreate this pattern, then go through the opened gateway.

Combine the bottom two patterns and set this on the bottom hexagon over to the left. On the left puzzle, direct the laser up at the bottom left, then right with the mirror, then down with the next laser to charge up the receiver.

Back out and adjust the mirror above the hexagon patterns so you charge up a crystal on the right puzzle. Drag the connectors around so this crystal connects to a laser that points up through the small gap, then hits a mirror and targets the purple crystal at the top right. Now rearrange the pieces so the crystal you powered up with the first laser connects to another laser that shoots down to the bottom receiver. Go through the opened gateway.

Section 4

Examine the left puzzle on the main building. Spin the central disc to charge up the left crystal, then spin it back to horizontal to charge up the central crystal. Keeping the central disc horizontal, pull the left lever almost all the way down, and the digits 26 will be revealed.

Next examine the right puzzle on the main building. Drag the two bottom connectors left, and the right crystal up to fully charge it. Also fully charge the bottom left crystal. Drag the right crystal to the top connector, then drag the left crystal to the far right, and finally drag the right crystal down to charge the receiver. The digits 85 will be revealed.

Back out and enter the code 2685 into the keypad. After the transformation, go through the glowing portal.
