Open the fuse box and click the power fuse. Note that you cannot have both light and power on.

Get light in archive office:    Use the keycard on fireproof archive door.

Enter and see that it is dark.

Go back to the fuse box and click on light which in turn turns off the power.

Go back inside the archive. Look around.

Take the lamp from the bookshelf.

Go to the right and use the lamp on the socket right of the archive storage double doors.

Go back to the fuse box and click on the power fuse.

Go back inside the archives office.

Madonna Benois:

Go to the right and see that the lamp shines near the computer and X-ray machine.

Do a fast search where the painting is located:    Now that the power is on, check the computer.

Right click the computer and then do a search.

Click on Artist: select Leonardo da Vinci.

Click on Title: select Madonna Benois.

Click on Year: select 1477.

Click on Confirm button.

Nina automatically takes the Madonna Benois painting.

Check the painting for its secret:    Use the painting on X-ray machine at right.

After Nina turns the machine on; the computer screen shows data.

Nina is taken back to a scene in Alexandria. Archimedes talks to the King. He informs the King about the circumference of the circle - pi. Pi is the formula to eternity. It can be calculated to its last decimal place but it will take time. One that knows that information will know the secret of the world. This conversation is heard by a robed man hidden at left.

Cassandra:    A voice talks to Nina. Anderson disappeared with Max. The voice asks Nina if she knows that she is being monitored. Nina is asked to come to the voice.

Click on the monitor and right click to note a QR code.

Use the cell phone on the monitor to analyze the code.

See a map of Alcatraz and it shows that Cassandra is there. Cassandra is a mythology figure that foretells disasters but is not believed.


The satellite that has been tracking Nina states - Connection lost.

Nina arrives in Alcatraz and enters the building. She is greeted by Cassandra's voice but immediately Nina is locked in. The voice says that it has been hacked and Cassandra will try to take care of it.

Check the place:

Look around. Check the locked door, the air conditioning above the door, cable on wall and showcase.

The showcase has a clothes hanger. Take it. Check the loudspeaker and cells.

Open cell:    Enter the open cell. Look around.

The placard is made of horse dung. Take the mug from the carvings on the shelf.

Take bricks from floor and blanket from bed.

Check the toilet and the placard by window.

Outside:    Check and then look out the window.

See the cable that connects from this building to an outbuilding. See a courtyard below.

Check the outbuilding and see the Vitruvian man drawn by da Vinci on the wall. Cassandra is there.

Get to the outbuilding:

Go back inside the cell.

Get the cable:    Inside the open cell, use the mug to get water from the toilet - mug with water.

Exit the cell and check the cable that leads to the air conditioning on the wall. It is live.

Use the mug of water on the air conditioning above the exit door. That short circuits the AC.

Use the bolt cutter on the now dead cable.

Open the window:    Go back inside the open cell.

In inventory combine the blanket and the bricks to get blanket with bricks.

Use the cable with blanket of bricks to get sack of brick.

Look out the window to see the view of the buildings.

Use the sack of bricks on the bars of the window. Nina starts over automatically to empty the sack and then put sack outside. Then she fills it with bricks.

Click the sack and it will be on the cursor. Click the sack of bricks cursor on the courtyard floor.

Nina pushes the window and the bars are off.

Go to the outbuilding:    Exit through window.

Use the clothes hanger on cable. Nina will slide down to the other building.

Cassandra:    Nina enters the outbuilding and talks to Cassandra who is behind a locked metal door.

Learn that Cassandra is a member of cyber-explorers aka hackers. They control million of computers.

A combat robot named Murphy comes out and threatens Nina. Murphy is under enemy control. Cassandra says that it is trying to get the system back under its control.

Fight Murphy:

Murphy blocks the way to Cassandra's door.

Enter the metal door behind Nina.

Get your own combat robot:    Look at and take the combat robot on the floor. One of its arms can hold a weapon.

Check the scrap heap at right. Get drill, buzz saw, flame thrower and taser. Wow - nice selection of weapons.

Fit your robot with the weapon of your choice; then exit to do battle. You cannot change or add weapon outside.


Click your weapon fitted (your choice) combat robot on Murphy to start the battle puzzle.

Select bottom or top attack at left and bottom or top defense at middle of top panel. Also you can use one of 3 limpet mines.

Each fighter has 100 points to start with. The aim is to bring the enemy to zero before you do.

If you lose, you can always repair your combat robot, change weapon and start another battle.

Note what weapon Murphy is holding. He has a flame thrower.

Select your attack, defense and if you want to use a mine. Click on Start Round. Good luck.

You can save after each battle. SAVE GAME here - so you can replay before the cutscene.

When you win, Cassandra comes out and talks to Nina.

They enter Cassandra's workroom with a bank of computers and monitors. Anderson is her uncle. Anderson came to her about pi that he found in the scroll. She is a math wiz. She used her computers to calculate pi. The numbers after the decimal points are pure chaos but near the quadrillionth decimal place which no one has calculated, it started to make sense. It now shows 1 and zeros. It is a blueprint for a machine. Max must have found another anomaly and that is why he was taken by the enemy.

The enemy is here. The helicopter landed and they are locked in.

Decision:    You have a choice of either giving Cassandra time to open the door or leave Cassandra to save yourself.

If you selected to leave Cassandra, both Nina and Cassandra are taken by the guards.

If you selected to give Cassandra time to open the door; only Nina is taken by the guards.

This decision affects the "what happened to the characters" clips at the ending.

Cadiz, Spain

Nina is brought to an aircraft carrier.

Nina starts to wake up in a chamber. She hears that they are in Cadiz, Spain. The soldiers are picking up cargo here and then go to the headquarters to deliver replacement parts. Nina is given another dose to put her back to sleep.

Find a way out:

Nina wakes up in the dark. Pick up the green light and see that it is a spray paint for marking. The only other thing in inventory is the keycard.

Check the ventilation cover. It cannot be removed.

Combine the keycard with the spray paint to get keycard with color.

Use keycard with color on ventilation cover. Nina inserts it outside and it reflects faint light into the room.

Take the broken cell phone at bottom center of screen. Take the plastic up close to the right.

Check and take the threaded bar that holds the door.

Use the threaded bar on the ventilation cover. Exit the container.

Look around for clues as to where the headquarters is situated:

Cargo check:    Max might be at headquarters and Nina has to find where HQ is. The soldiers mentioned that they are delivering parts to HQ.

Take the clipboard and scanner at a wall panel at left. Read the clipboard in inventory.

Learn that the cargos are colored coded for discharge at certain ports: orange is for Cadiz, magenta is for Le Havre, white is for Rotterdam and cyan stays on board.

Check the color markings of the cargos on board. The bottom cargos are 3 magentas for Le Havre and one white for Rotterdam at the bottom. The 2 on top are cyan colored.

The white coded cargo at bottom right is blocked.

Move the blockage of the white cargo:    Exit through the door at top right and be in a balcony outside the aircraft carrier. See that this is the USS Ronald Reagan. Oh.

Climb the ladder at left. Take the large working gloves, measuring instrument and screwdriver at left.

Use the plastic cup on grease on airplane to get mug with grease.  See that the grease is yellow.

Exit to the stern at right and be at the balcony.

Check the lamp on the wall. Use the screwdriver to take the lamp, lamp holder and red glass.

Enter through door.

In inventory combine the mug with yellow grease with the red glass from the lamp to get an orange and sticky greased glass.

Use the orange greased glass on the magenta colored mark of the rightmost cargo that is blocking the white one at right. Now it marked to be unloaded here in Cadiz.

A worker arrives and calls someone to pick up the orange marked cargo. It is removed.

Check the white cargo for Rotterdam:    Check the door of the now unblocked white marked cargo. It is sealed with a thin cable.

Use the threaded bar on the container door to open it.

Check the parts inside the container.

Select the difficulty level of the puzzle.

The object of the puzzle is to place the parts at right to form the symbol.

On easy level, note that there are shadows to mark certain parts in the frame. There are no shadows in difficult level.

Left click to take or drop the part.

Place the part over the turn arrow at top center and then click the arrow to rotate. Good luck.

CERN in Switzerland

See a test run of an accelerator. The test failed. Jane Cunningham says that it needs deterrium to work.

Nina is here and talks to Van Rijn, the head of the facility. Nina bluffs that she has insurance; an encrypted message left with a friend to be released to the police and press if Nina doesn't report.

At the site hospital, Max is taken out of the cooling chamber.

Chief of Research Jane Cunningham arrives and talks to Nina. Jane knows all about Nina's dreaming of the guardians. She asks Nina to contact the guardians and get deterrium that is not found here on earth. It might mean endless source of energy. Nina doesn't think these people should be the one to have the monopoly of that power source.

Max wakes up groggy. Talk to Max.

Look at the other 2 cooling chambers. If option 1 is selected at Alcatraz, see that one is empty and the other has Michael Anderson. If option 2 is selected at Alcatraz, see that the right chamber should be where Cassandra is; the other chamber has Anderson.

Look around. Check the desk and the computer screen.

Go right in the room behind the curtains and take Max' clothes from bottom wall cupboard.

The guard brings Max and Nina to the control panel room.

An alarm is heard. Cunningham says the guardians have taken the antimatter. The antimatter is a by-product of their experiments. A massive explosion will occur if antimatter comes in contact with matter.

Nina exclaims that the guardians want to destroy the world. They have to find out where the Guardians are hiding. To do that, Nina has to find them in her dream.


Nina's dream

Nina is put to sleep and she has to find the guardians.

Go forward until the door at end of hallway. You can turn back to wake up. Go through door and be in a destroyed world. You might win the Daredevil award here if you walk into the light without turning around.

Back at CERN, Nina is clinically dead. Anderson and Max watch over Nina. She has 3 minutes to contact the guardians before she is revived. Nina always wakes up when fire occurs so she needs to power down to get through.

Find the guardians:

Nina sees the end of the world - a destroyed city. Look around.

Sign of the guardian:    Look at the wall at left and see the familiar face - symbol.

Take the teddy bear - plush toy on the ground.

Look around for another sign of the guardian.

Go to the building across the way. Check the poster left of the shop window.

Check the shop window. Take stone from the heap of stones right of the shop window.

Use the stone on the shop window. Do these 3 times to break the window.

Take the camera with telephoto lens.

Use the camera with telephoto lens on the center ruins in the background.

Nina sees the guardian sign-symbol on the ruined building. She wants to go there.

The near building collapses and the roads are blocked by debris and fire.

Check the balcony of the collapsed building. Get an iron bar.

Go to the ruined building with guardian sign:

Get to subway:    Check the subway entrance and see that it is blocked.

Check the air duct grating under the car.

Open the car door. Look inside the car and release the handbrake.

Nina automatically pushes the car off the grating.

Use the iron bar on the air duct grating. Enter the air duct.

Go to the street:    2 minutes to go.

Nina gets farther in at the subway but it is now blocked by a destroyed subway car.

Look around. See gasoline seeping on the wall of the subway from above.

See a precariously held bus above the subway car.

Use the plush toy - teddy bear with the gasoline on wall to get Teddy saturated with gasoline.

Go back through hole on wall and be out where you started from.

Combine Teddy saturated with gasoline with iron bar.

Use Teddy saturated with gasoline on fire on the road to get burning Teddy.

Go back down the air duct and be at end of subway.

Use the burning Teddy on gasoline on wall. The bus falls down over the subway car.

Click on the ruins above to automatically enter the bus be up.

Get to the guardian:

Nina sees a guardian at roof of a burning building. They are separated by a crack and fire on the roof. Look around.

Check the cable roller beside Nina to get steel cable.

Check the elevator and hand wheel at right (exposed by hole on wall).

Check the steel cable holding the billboard. Nina is not strong enough to bring it down.

Use the steel cable with the billboard's steel cable.

Pick up the steel cable from floor. Tie the steel cable on elevator wheel.

Use the hand wheel to pull the billboard and it forms a platform over the fire.

Get the defibrillator ready!

Nina asks the guardian where to find them here. The guardian writes something on the ground.

Nina asks him why they are destroying the world. He talks about the Fermi paradox. The universe is infinite and the Milky Way should be populated in millions of years but as of right now; there has been no contact with another.

When asked about pi connection; the guardian was about to explain about the machine when Nina was woken up.

Back in CERN.

As Max:

Nina asks for something to write on. Go to desk left of door and get pen and paper.

Give Nina the pen and paper. Nina writes down the coordinates.

Use the computer terminal.

Use the note with coordinates on the search engine bingle's input field.  :) Click search icon.

Find out that the coordinates point to the island of Santorini.

Santorini, Greece


They sailed to the island of Santorini.

Find the gate to the guardian's home:

Select your puzzle difficulty. In easy mode, you can click on a location and the submarine can travel there directly. In hard mode, you have to traverse the path and can get blocked or go with the ocean current to get where you need to be. You cannot go against the current.

The aim of the puzzle is to find 4 locations that hide crystals and then place the crystals on the recess close to the gate of the complex.

The three are now in a submarine.

From the start, go diagonal right and see an amphitheatre and recesses at right. The recesses are where you place the collected crystals.

The rectangular black area left of the recess is the entrance to the temple.

Take note of the locations of the recesses - they point to the location where the crystals are hidden.

From recesses, go straight up until a heap of stone right of a very bright area. Click to get a crystal.

From recesses, go diagonal right to another heap of stone. Click to get a crystal.

From the recesses, go diagonal left to another heap of stones. Click to get a crystal.

From the recesses, go down to the lava field and another heap of stones. Click to get a crystal.

In hard mode, this area is the hardest to reach.

Study the flow of the current and see which one you can use to coast to the heap of stone.

Start close to recesses or gate and then go southeast (as shown below). Then follow the flow as shown by the lines.

Click hold move the submarine to guide it through the path you want it to go.


Open the gate:    Go back to recesses and place the crystals in the recesses.

The gate opens at left.

Max is absorbed by the archeological items at the gate. There is a picture that showed the guardians being tortured.

Nina is absorbed by the functionality of the items and sees escape pods.

Jane wants to open the door immediately. Priorities, priorities...

Open the temple gate - as Jane Cunningham:

Terminal:    Check the terminal panel left of the gate. See that it has 4 icons: letter, 2 glyphs and an animal. The guardian's medallion face is at right.

Hieroglyphs:    Check the panel right of the gate. Cunningham says there might be something particular about one of the glyphs.

Note that the lion at center is only shown once.

Indian Ornaments:    Go to the terminal beside Nina.

See the God Ganeesha and symbols at the bottom. 2 of the symbols are missing.

Take note that the symbols are repeated after the 4th symbol. So the 2 missing symbols can be deduced.

Stone figures:    Check the middle ages occidental relief.

See 12 statues with alphabet above it. The 12th one has no alphabet.

Take note that the letters correspond to the first letter of the months of year - J F M A M J J A S O N. So D for December is missing.

Terminal:    Go back to the leftmost panel.

Look close at panel. Enter the anomalies seen on the other 3 panels by pressing the button below each column.

Left is D for December.

The second and third columns should have the 2 missing glyphs under the depiction of Ganeesha.

The rightmost is the lion which is shown only once at the center of the hieroglyphs.

Press the guardian-alien face button at right. The gate opens.


Enter through door.

See that the deterrium powering the whole place is within a force field.

Nina wants to find the antimatter. Jane Cunningham injects Max with a poison.

The whole thing - antimatter, attack... was a lie. Max has only 20-30 minutes left before the poison takes over.

Nina is given a walkie talkie.

Find the place to deactivate the force field:

Compass door:    Go left and see a big compass face with several hands. Each hand has an icon.

Look at the mural above the compass face. It is a depiction of events that happened in the past, present and maybe the future.

From left to right, see: Archimedes, Cleopatra, Menis-Ra master thief, Leonardo da Vinci, Max, Nina, Jane Cunningham and 4 Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

Take note of the position of the hands.

Arrange the symbol on the compass hands to correspond to the position of the matching character's hands or where they are pointing to.

Archimedes (S - compass), Cleopatra (E - eye of Horus), Menis-Ra (SW -dagger), daVinci (W - paintbrush), Max (SE - man), Nina (N - woman), Jane Cunningham (gun - NW) and the 4 Horsemen (NE - skull).

The door opens.

Guardian:    Enter and see a guardian suspended inside a capsule.

Nina talks to the guardian. He wants Nina's help. Learn that their brotherhood's mission is to protect humanity. They were given deterrium but have a directive. They are to prevent mankind from going over their technological limit. The guardians have been persecuted during the Middle Ages and nearly became extinct.

Whenever any civilization progresses to having computers and discovers the secret of pi; they inevitably build the machine.

The machine if built will destroy everything. It is a means to limit the expansion of the worlds and not be a threat to others.

Decision:    As a sign of trust, Nina is given access to the station power supply. SAVE GAME HERE.

The control panel left of the guardian shows a choice:

This decision affects the "what happened to the characters" clips at the ending.

If the option - Deactivate the force field and save Max is selected:    If this option is selected, see a slider puzzle.

The aim of the puzzle is to move the bars out of the way of the red bar so that it can reach and make contact with the power at right.

Move the numbered bars:

1 - left once

2 - down once

3 - right 3 times

4 - up once.

1 - left once

5 - up once

6 - right 3 times

7 - down once

1 - left 2 times

4 - down 3 times

red bar - right 3 times

4 - up once

6 - left once

2 - down 2 times

red bar - right to power.


Once the force field is down, Jane Cunningham takes the deterrium and leaves Max and Nina behind.

If the option - Leave the force field on and save the world is selected:   

Get a call from Jane and Nina tells her off.

Go to the doorway and Jane comes in. Jane punches Nina unconscious.

Jane deactivates the force field herself and takes the deterrium.

Continuation of both options:

Exit and see that Jane Cunningham left the bag behind by the door. Take the bag.

Check the bag in inventory to get antidote and another walkie talkie. If the option in Alcatraz was to leave Cassandra, Jane's CERN keycard is in inventory.

Use the antidote on Max.

Nina asks about the escape pod that she saw by the gate.

CERN in Switzerland


Jane Cunningham and the assistant in a wheelchair do the experiment with the deterrium. It's working. The network is hacked and security is disabled. It does not affect the test. Anyone can now access the facility.

Max and Nina enter the control room. Nina talks to Jane to stop this experiment. Jane is overpowered and tied to a chair. Nina tells the assistant that the guardians told her about the machine destroying the world.

The assistant says that there is a way to stop the test and that is to deactivate the magnetic field. This might cause reversal of time or a black hole. The assistant needs someone to switch off the firewall power supply. Once the firewall is down, the assistant can reprogram the machine to stop the experiment.

Max says that he will take care of the firewall. The assistant gives him his access card to get to the transformer station via the elevator. He also warns Max to be careful not to be caught by the guards.

The assistant needs to go to the server room-data center soon. Nina gives Max one of the walkie talkies.

Look around for usable items:

As Nina:     Look around. See the fusion chamber

 Open the drawer beside Nina to get remote control flying saucer - model UFO; a hobby of the assistant.

Take the partially burnt cigar of Van Rijn's.

See that Cunningham wrecked the console, the key is broken off. There is a red telephone on the console.

Check the wastebasket left of the assistant to get poster strip and pencil.

Deactivate laser grid:

Clean room:    The assistant says the security system has been activated.

There are invisible laser beams that if triggered will hermetically seal the room and release deadly gas.

The laser beams can be deactivated at the console on the wall but the assistant does not have the keycard to use it.

Make the laser beams visible:    Look around.

Check the console on the wall and sensor at the ceiling.

Check the 2 lab coats to get key with lighter key ring, lipstick and pocket mirror.

In inventory light the cigar with the lighter.

Place the smoking cigar on the empty table at left wall. See the laser grid.

Get the keycard:    Check the table on wall in the hallway. It has a keycard. It might the one that is needed to deactivate the lasers.

Check the pocket mirror in inventory and see that it is double sided.

Combine the pocket mirror with poster strips.

Use the mirror with poster strip on laser grid. Nina separates the mirror and places one on the wall and another that points to the laser beam. See a small opening in the grid.

Attach some poster strips on the model UFO.

Use the model UFO with poster strips on the table with the keycard in the hallway.

Nina asks the assistant to fly the UFO model to get the keycard. Betty, the UFO model gets the keycard.

Get to transformer station above ground:   

As Max:    The elevator stops. Van Rijn thinks it's Nina that is in the elevator. Max talks to Van Rijn.

Check the slab on the ceiling. It is held by screws.

Take the keycard from the elevator panel. Use the keycard on the slab to unscrew the panel.

Exit to the ceiling.

Max is now above the elevator. Take the metal pin on the floor at right side.

Climb the ladder and the elevator is soon traveling down.

Use the metal pin on the guide wheels at left to jam it.

As Nina (continued):

Hospital Ward:    Use the keycard to enter the hospital ward at right.

Go to the right behind the curtain. Use the key with lighter on the locked top wall cupboard to get dressing material, disinfectant, laser pointer and defibrillator.

Laser grid:    Exit the hospital.

Use the keycard on the console right of the hallway. The laser grid is now off.

Go to data center.

Take care of the guards:    See 2 guards by the data center door.

Look around and see pipes and sprinkler system above the heavily armed guards.

Nina talks to the assistant. Hahahahaha.

Use the laser pointer on the sprinkler system above the left guard. The sprinkler sprinkles. ;) The right guard leaves to check the sprinkler system.

The remaining guard stays by the door and the water - puddle is pooling under him.

Use the defibrillator on the puddle. Ouch.

Data Center:    Enter the data center. The guard is now trying to get in with the torch.

Look around. Check the overhead pipes and Nina says it contains liquid nitrogen to cool the servers.

Check the fire cabinet and see that it is locked. Use the defibrillator on the fire cabinet.

Take the axe. Use the axe on the overhead pipe. The pipe releases the gas just in time for the incoming guard to be hit.

Nina takes the dropped gun.

As Max (continued):   

Use the ladder to go above ground.

Check the transformer building and the door. It is locked and the keycard does not work.

Use the walkie talkie by clicking it on Max. Max calls Nina and asks if the transformer building can be opened from the control center.

Nina says yes if Max can give the identifier of the door.

Look close at the lock of the door. See that the panel is held by screws.

Use the keycard on the screws. Click on the identifier number at bottom - XJ-3486.

Click the walkie talkie on Max again to give the identifier to Nina.

The 2 choices offered at Alcatraz lead to 2 different choices at force field event (so 4 different endings). The differences are seen in the "what happened to the characters" clip at the ending.

Playing the different choices will also get the 4 different achievements when the game is finished: Partner, Party animal, Good Samaritan and Hero. Playing all variables-choices will garner the Perfectionist achievement.
