The object of the puzzle is to move the gold metal arrowhead at bottom through the rings to end up at the inner horizontal slot at the center.
Note that there 5 rings. There are metal bars that blocks passage within the rings and rotating gold bars that throws the arrowhead back to the start.
I find that the easiest way for me is to use point and click within the rings rather than keyboard or arrows at bottom right.
Position the arrowhead at the open spot at bottom.
Move the arrowhead using left click on the place you want it to go.
Click on next ring when the rotating bar just passed. Time each click on the next subsequent rings when the rotating bars are far from where you click.
At the 4th inner ring or the one second to the innermost, position the arrowhead close to the blocking bar at right so that you can get to the inner ring as close as possible to the horizontal slot at center. Then move the arrowhead inside the slit. Good luck.

Holmes and Watson walk down Whitechapel Street.
Look around and talk to any active person. It is nice to revisit the area. You can check Buck's Row (first side road at right) where Polly Nichols was killed. See people eating. Some have lost their homes.
If you talk to some of the non-essential characters in the streets, you might get the A Very Fine Loafer honour.

Dial I = The progression of the numbers is: 1 + 2 = 3; 2 + 3 = 5; 3 + 5 = 8.
Turn dial 1 to 8.
Dial II = Add the left column and the sum is 9. Add the middle column and the sum is 9. If the blank third number of the right column is 1; the sum will be 9.

Dial III = Going on a spiral starting at 21; the difference between 21 and 18 is -3; 18 and 16 is -2; 16 and 15 is -1; 15 and 12 is -3 (starts over); 12 and 10 is -2 ; 10 and 9 is -1 and 9 and 6 is -3 again. So it is a repeated -3, -2 and -1 pattern. By the progression, the next number following 6 should be 4 having a difference of -2. (Thanks Rushes!)
Turn dial 3 to 4.
Dial IV = The difference between 10, 8 and 6 is 2; the difference between 3, 7 and 11 is 4. The only available progression with a difference on the bottom row is 1; so the middle blank number is 3.

Move - click arrow to select colors to be moved to the open inner area of the panel.
Position the colored ball(s) of the "to be moved" panel similar to the end color(s) of the receiving panel at other side. This will group similar colors together. For example: if the open receiving panel has green at top and/or bottom; move green colored balls on the top or bottom of the moving-sending panel. Then move it to the other side.
Then do a similar move to get the other color to the other side. Slowly after some moves, the similar colored balls will be arranged together.

Broken floorboard: Turn around from millstone and walk towards the white wall.
Halfway, Holmes says that the board gives in to his weight. Look down on the broken board.
It has been broken and hastily repaired. Use the knife on the board and the knife breaks.
White wall: Go to the white colored wall. Check the wall and it sounds hollow.
See the crack at bottom right of wall. Look up to see an opening at top of wall. There is a piece of iron behind the opening.
Exit the attic. Check the wall above the stairs. See that the opening has been boarded up but this is not seen in the attic.
Go down the stairs and look through the window. See that Watson is in control down there.

Arsenal: Use the spade on the broken floor board under the left window.
See a Gatling gun, new pistols and boxes of weapons. Get the chains from the left boxes.
Millstone: Use the chains on the millstone. Holmes automatically wraps it around the millstone.
Turn around and connect the chain to the rope. Now we need another cog.
Cog: Go to the hatch right of the wardrobe and talk to Watson.
Attention to Detail honour is obtained.

Use the bandages with disinfectant on the deaf brother.
Learn why they were tortured. Judge Beckett was killed because he has information about the leader. They refuse to give the name of the leader of the organization. Giving his name would be signing their death warrant.

Go to the logs by the fireplace and take the cog.

Look down and see gold colored knobs.
Raise the trap door and see that it might be used to release water. The door closes when released. The door needs to be held up.
Combine the ladder rung and the rusty metal bar to get 2 iron bars.
Tie them with the wire to get long iron bar.
Raise the trap door again. Use the long iron bar on the holes of the trap door to hold it up.
Now that we have the trap door raised; walk to the boat.

Go back to the cloth rope and balcony. Turnaround, F - R - R - L - R - R - L - F to cloth rope.
Make a walkway: Place the first plank on the railing. Walk the plank.
Place the next plank. Look around for the active place to put the next plank down; it might be on the left or right of the previously laid plank.
Turn and walk the next plank until there are no more planks.
Turn around and take the previous stepped on plank and place it to the last empty space.
Climb to the other balcony.
Disable the planted bombs:
Call and warn Inspector Lestrade:
Check the glass door at left. Use the key taken from Moriarty's table on the lock.
Enter and use the telephone. Hear another warehouse bell.
Holmes calls Scotland Yard and talks to Inspector Lestrade about his state of health and the bombs. The police are to wait for the defusing instructions.
Watson: Holmes is alerted by the tapping on the window. Check the window.
Holmes talks to Watson about the live bomb he has with him. Watson wants Holmes to bring the telephone.
Holmes jumps out the window. They will use the bomb on the warehouse and check the merry go round.
They have to disconnect the bomb from the merry go round control panel and then tell Lestrade when to turn off the switches.
You are reversing the roles, Watson. Highly amusing.
Turn off the switches to the bombs:
Go to the carousel and then to the control panel.
Connect the telephone to the telephone panel at top right. Perfect!
Look close at the live control panel at left.
See colored balls in 2 rows at outer circle.
The inner circle balls are still grayed out.
The outer balls are separated into quadrants. Each of those quadrants represents a bomb in a London location.
The grayed balls in the inner circle can be clicked to show different colors.
The aim of the puzzle is to highlight a column of balls in the outer circle by complimenting their colors with the balls in the inner circle.
Click the inner balls to copy a pair of balls in the column seen at outer ring.
Once a quadrant is finished, a bomb in that location can be switched off. Holmes will tell Lestrade to do so.
One solution is shown below. The starting colored ball in this solution is the inner yellow ball seen at left picture and the lit balls go counterclockwise. The bottom left quadrant (Scotland Yard) is finished at left picture.
The finished solution is the picture on the right.
The bombs have been disconnected. The switches can be turned off now.
Get the Minesweeper honour for defusing the planted bombs.
Obtain The Brain honour for not skipping a puzzle.
Moriarty exits from the Haunted House and wonders why the bombs have not exploded yet. He calls for the anarchists to be brought to the warehouse. He will go to the warehouse to check on the soup preparations.
Stop the soup kitchen carts:
Go to the main gate just across the steps from the carousel. Exit through gate. There are no guards.
Go to the cable car. Hear the warehouse siren. Watson explains about the siren.
We must hurry... Moriarty's men are looking for us, the soup production is nearly finished and I am carrying a primed bomb in my hands!
Enter the cable car. The cable car stalls in the middle of the ravine.
The goons see the cable car and Moriarty is alerted. Moriarty taunts Holmes.
Bomb: Pick up the bucket from behind Watson.
In inventory combine the bucket and the bomb. Combine the bomb in a bucket with the belt to get bomb ready.
Use the bomb ready on the cable above Watson. Watson sends the bomb through the cable to fall and roll in front of the water reservoir.
Get back to the other side away from the bomb: Look left at the panel beside Holmes at side of cable car.
Use the knife to flip the right latch. Pull the manual emergency system lever.
Watch the bomb destroy the water reservoir.
Get the Bomb Defuser honour for using the bomb.
Find out who Moriarty obeys:
Enter the fun fair again. Go to and enter the Haunted House.
From the door, go left to the side passage. Open the door.
Watch what happens.
Get The Legacy honour for finishing the game.
