Put coin in Isadora's machine and listen to what she says. The grub means nothing. Just something wierd. Go up the ladder beside Isadora to the balcony. Click on the center of the door and solve the match-the-sounds puzzle.

The masks have to be in order from left to right. Each mask must have a characteristic of one next to it.

This sequence of symbols and letters will be applied to the Organ keyboard. Starting from the left side of the keyboard, assign the letters and their corresponding symbols to the keys using both black and white keys. you will notice that there are two letters missing from the alphabet since there are only 24 keys. We found it best to make a chart of the keys with the alphabet right above them, or we'll E-Mail you our chart. email@example.com
Look down, get mouse. Back out, turn right, go forward, turn left, go to cat tapestry, put mouse in bowl, but don't enter yet (this takes you to the chasm). Turn left, click on center tapestry to enter guitar book room, read guitar book, make notes on letters to tune guitar, look in three drawers below.

Go to the garage door in the center of the upstairs hallway. Click on handle in middle and drag up. Give bone to dog. Explore. In the car is another notation clue. Go to the robot and click on him. Pick the car on the right, the slowest one. Right after you click on the starting lights hold down on the mouse button untill the race is over. May take several times. When you have won, listen to the robot. Turn right twice and go to the round tool shed left of the door. Click on handle and drag right. Look at the notation clue and draw it or print screen.

Face Skeleton, then turn right, go ahead once, turn right, go ahead once, turn left, go ahead twice to the door. Turn left and go ahead 1 time. Turn left, go ahead twice, turn left, go ahead once. You will be facing the skull. Look down, and click on the center of compartment. Put toothed wheel in empty spot. Here, since every game is different, you will have to experiment. The goal is to have all 12 holes showing pink. Our arrangement was 1, 3, 4, 2. The secrete is to add the total of pink dots on each wheel, and turn the top wheel untill all available pink dots are showing. When you get the wheels aligned properly, look up, and click on the skull to enter the Dolly room. Explore.
Go click on guitar case in the chair. She will tell you she needs a string. Go up the steps, enter the skull. Turn right, go ahead once, then turn left, go ahead one to the bar.

Notice that the guitar head is bent down, so tune from bottom to top with the guide from the guitar book. Get the tuning fork. Go to the white door, and click in the middle. Go put it in the muse machine. Go back to the Dolly room at the left end of the t-shaped hall. After you enter the door, turn right, and go to the ball machine. You must align the cups to get the ball the the bottom of the board. We found it best to turn the lower cups first to see which way they will turn. This is fairly easy, it only took us a couple of tries. Click on the ball and draw the notation clue. There are 2 notation clues on this sheet. The first one is for the jungle organ. The second one is missing the second note, this will be the letter of the unused guitar string in the left drawer in the guitar book room
Go to guitar picture tapestry, the first one to the right of the throne and click on it. Using the clues from top of the stairs, microwave, and cat picture, drag correct pieces to center to build guitar. Pull up on toggle to watch movie. Turn right, open door and get vacuum tube. Since the twins take it from you, go back to the Dolly room, climb the stairs, enter the skull. Turn right, go ahead once, turn left, go ahead once, go ahead once over the bar. Turn left twice, go forward, open the chest marked time bomb, get the vacuum tube, back away, go ahead twice, turn right, go ahead once, turn right, go ahead to skull, enter skull. Put vacuum tube in muse machine.
Go to the organ. Build another keyboard chart below the first one, take the first symbol from the sheet music and place it and the letter on the second chart as indicated on the sheet music, then continue your alphabet from there, wraping around at the end of the keyboard back to the begining of the keyboard on the left. On ours we had to move up the keyboard to the right five notes counting both white and black keys. Using the chart from the tool shed, the right and left side will overlay. Using the notation clues fill in the blank spaces in the second row by matching the shaded boxes. In the first column add the first two rows of arrows to get the third row (f you have 4 arrows right in top box and 2 arrows left in the second box, the third box will be 2 arrows right). When finished this will be the sequence for the notation clue from the race car. Now play music from notation clues. When it is right, you will hear noises from the monkey above. We played all the notation clues, and the monkey was holding 4 coins to give to Isadora
We used the blue coin first and got the key.
Go up the red stairway the the hallway. Turn right and go forward to the attic door. Use key on door, open door. Go ahead twice to puzzle. Watch the way the figures move to figure out how to get to the door at the other end. This one is kind of tough. When you reach the door, turn left and click on the chest. Get the elevator card. Turn right and push button, enter elevator. Turn left and put card in panel. Turn left and move handle to basement.
Go forward, you will get a gun. Shoot all the rats, you must reload when the cylinder is empty by clicking on the cylinder in the lower left. You can turn your pistol into a machine gun by holding down on the control key and shooting a rat. When the clip is empty, you must repeat the process. Watch out for the big rats coming in from the hole ahead and a little to the left. It takes about five shots to kill them. This was one of the hardest sequences to finish for us. When all of the lights are lit, go forward to the boarded up door, turn right. Click on the paper, and get the monacle. Put monacle in muse machine.
After the muse machine blows up, listen to the twins, and follow them down. Turn left and click on boat. Explore. Click on anything that lights up, and look at it. The green on the palette is to tell you that green is the missing color in the color-number notation clue at the left end of the t-shaped hall. On ours, green was three beats, or play the note three times.
Now for the most nervewracking puzzle in the game. Go to the organ. Here is where you will need your organ keyboard chart again, and the completed chart from the tool shed. Play the notes on the totems from left to right using your second keyboard chart. When you run into a shaded box, play the first note on the top of the totem, then move up or down the keyboard the number of arrows indicated on the notation clue from the tool shed. If the note is colored, play that note that many times, if the box is colored, play the sequence that many times. Good luck, Happy playing.
