Look at the large painting of Caron on the wall - Now let us descend in to the blind world.  Inferno 4, 13. Look up at the ceiling's fresco representing paradise - Our charity doth never shut the doors. Paradiso 3, 43. Look at the painting (labeled telephone) on the floor-rug: It depicts Hell. Martin makes comments about the afterlife depicted in the Study - Life after death. Hmm... Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy

Look at the central bookcase (middle shelf) right of the painting. Martin noted that there is an antique edition of Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy.

Give the roses-letter to Erica. Erica gives the medallion to Martin. Look at the medallion in inventory. So we have to go to Mexico to talk to Professor Alexander Uben - he can explain about the medallion.

Mexico - Go left and then up the stairs of the temple. Meet the professor and learn about their project - fear of death, Aztec ritual called Aidou, columns and their writing. These findings lead to 3 precious boxes, Boat and eternal life. Uben gives one of the 3 precious boxes to Martin - sealed casket. It is the parcel that was sent by dialing the number on the code from the sealed envelope. He wants Martin to find a way to open the door.

Open the inner door of the temple:

Look at the hieroglyphic writing on the wall. Note that each line of the hieroglyphs has glyphs that are highlighted by different color: from top to bottom - purple, green, red, blue and yellow. Exit and look close at the left column on the foreground. The active cursor here is on the left side of the column. Arrange the column rings to be similar to the different colored glyphs on the wall.

The inner door opens but the entrance to the temple closed. They are trapped.

A soul calls for help:

Martin and the professor entered the chamber the writings have spoken about - the boat room. Look around especially the column on the left of the faces or middle of the screen - Earth, War, Eternal life and a journey.

There several stones here: the pointed stone on the right steps, small stone right of the entrance, the deformed stone on the left steps and a round stone at  mouth of the face left of the entrance. Pick up the round stone.

Look at the boats by the water. Only one is not broken, destroyed or damage. It is the one in the middle. Place the correct stone - the round stone picked up from the mouth of the face left of the entrance, on the boat.

Martin will separate his soul to fly away. The professor guides him to get his soul to fly away.

Martin's soul-ghost is now in his bedroom. Talk to a sleeping Diana.


Act 6

Is it a dream?

Diana is not sure about dream-nightmare and wants to look for the paper Martin wrote the address on. In inventory is her ???journal, lipstick and mirror.

Go to the window at right of the screen and open it. Look down at the blue dust on the carpet. But it was just a dream.

Go down to the kitchen and look at the white board right of the refrigerator and find the address in Mexico.

Diana and Java travels to Vallar.

Get the archeological map:

Prof. Alexander Uben's house - Move the cursor to the lemur and see that she is sitting on the map of the dig. Go to the kitchen side of the room and take the jar of nuts from the lower shelf. Place the peanuts on the armchair. Take the map of the digs.

Hear the bus outside. Go outside and automatically ride the bus.

Archeological site - Go left to the campsite and check the turf covered dig site. Take the machete. Climb up the stairs of the temple. Diana talks to Martin.

Open the door to the temple:

Diana needs to look for the emergency exit. There's a column on each side of the entrance that has a low and high hole.

Go to the left side of the entrance. See a structure covered in vegetation. Use machete on structure covered in vegetation to uncover an Aztec rock head. Look at it and note that it is separate and sitting on a platform that is level to the ground.

Go back to right side of entrance where Java is standing. Use machete on climbing plants at right side of the alligator rock head and expose a platform.

Look at rock head on the floor. Talk to Java. Java places the head on platform. Not enough weight to lower the platform. Talk to Java again to sit on the stand.

After Martin talks about his predicament with eagle sized vampire bats, look at the columns. They now have buttons.

Press the buttons in correct order. If the wrong order of buttons is pressed, they all pop out again.

The correct order is: top button at column by Java, bottom button at column at other side, bottom button at column by Java and top button on column at other side. The door is lifting.

Martin and the professor come out. Decisions and work are needed to be made. Martin leaves the stone with the professor. When Java leaves with Martin and Diana, the entrance to the temple is sealed again.


Act 7

3 precious boxes:

After the talk between Martin and Diana, enter the study left of the living room. Look at the parcel on the floor. Open the parcel and see the second box labeled parcel.

Villa - Go to the library at bottom screen from the foyer. Go to the red sofa and take the third parcel.

Use the medallion on the parcel from Martin's study and it opens. There's a small cylindrical stone with rings and golden symbol; it is very bright.

Use the medallion on the parcel from Professor Eulemberg's library and it opens. The seal states - A trusted person has the key. The code is in the box behind the cover. Professor Eulemberg.

The clue and very imaginative too is in the paper inserted between the plastic and box of the game CD. So you are the trusted person with the key.

Take the big cylindrical stone and click it on the medium one. Then click the combined stone on the small one to form an Aztec sceptre.

Use the sceptre on the hole on the metal door. Enter the secret laboratory. Look at the eagle boat. Look around. The bed is connected to the boat. Go close to the computer at rear of boat. Look at notes on chair.

Watch and listen to Jenna inform Martin of the trap. They were the ones that sent the 2 stones but needed the third which you got from Mexico. Martin is hit on the head.

When he is lucid, Jenna aka Lorelei explains what happened to him. Martin, who is now Alfie is in the body of an old dying tramp. He has only a few hours.


Act 8

Let's get out of here:

There's a nearly empty B & W Scotch whiskey in inventory.

Go to the bottom of the screen. The metal door is locked. Pull the lever left of door to get light. Take the iron bar in front of the metal door on the left.

Exit the shop and look at the switches left of door. One is the switch to some kind of fan (ventilator) but it has no juice. Use the wire on the switches and hear a short turn of the ventilator on the roof before it short-circuited.

Climb the stairs again. See that the dirt has been removed from the left corner of the roof. Look at scrap yard remains. Take the pocket watch.

Go back to the 'shop' and Malocchio. Hmm. He doesn't want the watch. Combine the watch with the gold chain to get watch. Give the new watch to Malocchio and get the 'key'.
