Official walkthrough by Raymond

November 2016

 

 

This walk-through is the most direct way for a 'win', but I'd urge you to play around a bit to discover various secrets and alternate endings.

With this walk-through you'll likely miss several scares and secrets.

And no worries, 96 MILL does not contain any 'no win' scenarios, where you mistakenly make the game unwinnable.

Burnside & Mill:

You start the game at the intersection of Burnside Ave & Mill Street.

Left click once (or tap) on the HDC Van (white van) represented by the icon at the top left of the screen to see what is in it.

Left click once on the 'gate key' found inside the van to select it, then click on an empty slot inside your inventory on the right to take the key.

Click the RDX button (tablet computer icon) at the bottom right of your screen to close your inventory.

Click the NE arrow to travel to the 'South Gate'.

South Gate:

Click on the RDX button (bottom right) to open your inventory.

The gate lock icon will disappear and a new arrow will appear, leading to the South Lot.

Click the NW arrow to travel to the South Lot.

South Lot:

Try clicking on the various door icons at the top left of the screen, locked or blocked eh?

Click on 'Frank's Truck' to open it.

Take the wrecking bar, welding torch, and two demolition charges (you will need to take them one after another, one at a time).

Click the top left W arrow to travel to 'Beneath the Skybridge'.

Take note of the 'Building C' door, its locked for now.

     Setting Demolition Charges

      If you've got the gist so far, you're supposed to be helping frank rig the building for implosion. This is done by setting demolition charges at 'charge points' usually pointed out by RDX messages previously recorded by Frank.

      Open your inventory and click on a demolition charge.

      Click on the highlighted charge point, to set the demolition charge.

      Repeat this process for the second charge.

      Whew, that was tough right?
