Dismantlement: Alarm Clock

GrinnypDismantlement: Alarm ClockMankind has created some wonderful things, from the pyramids to the Burj Al Arab. Creation and construction are things that we, as a species, are good at. However, once in a while, it is nice to give in to the flip-side of that nature, the one that finds great pleasure in deconstruction. The ability to take something completely apart, just to see what makes it tick. Yes, yes, that intro can mean only one thing. Dismantlement: Alarm Clock is here and it's dismantling time again!

Dismantlement: Alarm Clock is the fourth in the wildly popular Dismantlement series, created by gam.ebb.jp, amusing little point-and-click puzzlers about tearing common appliances down to their component parts. As with all the Dismantlement games, all you have is a trusty screwdriver and your wits when tackling this particular little problem. A button at the upper right allows you to move back and forth between front and back views, as well as other viewpoints as the game goes on. Click on screws to remove them, click on other things to open them, and click around everywhere to find clues to taking this darned thing apart before that alarm goes off yet again. There is no changing cursor to be found, so be warned there will be some pixel hunting.

Like Radio and Mouse before it, Dismantlement: Alarm Clock will require a lot of going back and forth as well as zooming in and out. Hopefully, you will know how the set controls work on a digital alarm clock, as they play a large role in many of the puzzles.

Analysis: It's always a joy when a new dismantlement game comes out, and Dismantlement: Alarm Clock is one of those great ways to kill a few minutes. Of course, it wouldn't be a Dismantlement without a bomb, would it? Who puts bombs in alarm clocks? Well, those who hate being woken up by one, yes, but still, there's something a little... odd about a game designer who keeps putting bombs in things. Just what do they have against household appliances anyway?

This particular game is especially appealing to all of those who live and die by the clock. After all, when that noisy thing goes off in the morning isn't the first impulse to slam it against the nearest hard surface until there is nothing left but bits? Or is that just me? Moving on...

The only complaint about any of the dismantlement series is that they are over too quickly. Maybe next time the developers should try for something larger. VCR anyone? Or maybe a television set? How about a Toyota? The sky's the limit! In the meantime, have fun dismantling that annoying clock. Just try not to blow up.

Dismantlement: Alarm Clock Walkthrough:

  1. Ah, a clock.... Well first things first. The clock is set to the time you're playing. There are six buttons underneath: set (which enters set mode), a left and right button (which let you choose what you're changing in set mode), an up and down button (which let you change whatever it is you've selected) and an alarm button.

  2. On the display, there are the days of the week at the top, four circles (at least one of which will be filled in), the time, the alarm (which currently reads 0:00) and the alarm symbol. It's faded out so the alarm is off.

  3. Turn the clock over. Undo the four screws.

  4. OK, four sections. I'm feeling good about this. The top left one looks interesting.

  5. Ah! There are screws at 3 and 9 o'clock.

  6. Turn the clock over, enter set mode, and change the main time to 3:00. Don't exit set mode.

  7. Turn the clock over. Ah! Success. Unscrew and repeat for 9:00.

  8. Click the white thing to remove it and reveal a spade symbol with two screw holes. Click the upper left corner of the space to reveal a yellow screw. Unscrew and click out.

  9. Click on the top of the clock. I know, right? We've not done this before...

  10. A clue! Try setting the time to the clue (so flip the clock, you're still in set mode etc.).

  11. Doesn't seemed to have worked. Try setting the alarm to the same time. Remember to turn the alarm on!

  12. Did you hear that sound? Check up the top of the clock again.

  13. Success. Unscrew.

  14. Return to the back of the clock, zoom in on the speaker and remove.

  15. Hmmm... some kind of clue? Or a logo from the company that made the clock. Don't ask me, I'm just writing the walkthr... oh, right. Sorry.

  16. Let's look at the second quarter (top right). Open the heart panel. Ok, colours. Click through them

    red, green, blue, white, yelllow black......

  17. Return. Click to the left of the clock.

  18. Flags? Abbreviations? Colours? If only we'd had some kind of clue!

  19. Wait! Remember the time logo? Well jot down the colours for T, I, M and E and then replicate the shape of the logo on the heart panel.

  20. If you want the solution: top row: white, white, white, yellow; second row: white, green, red, yellow; third row: white, green, red, yellow; fourth row: white, yellow, yellow, yellow

  21. Hit the close button (same as the return one), remove the white frame, and click on the right to reveal another yellow screw to remove.

  22. Woohoo! Halfway there! Now, try the fourth quarter (bottom right). It has a heart symbol as well. Guess we unlocked it when we solved the TIME-Colour puzzle.

  23. Open it up. Four rows, seven columns. I'm stumped.

  24. Wait, turn the clock over. Of course! There are the seven days at the top and the four circles. Hit set, and run through them in order and jot down how many circles are filled in.

  25. Turn the clock over and put it into the grid.

  26. Need the solution? Really?! OK...

    It's 4,2,1,2,3,1,4

  27. Unscrew the two screws that appear. Close the panel and remove. Unscrew the new screw.

  28. Click to the right and remove the yellow screw.

  29. Ok, one panel left. Same deal: I guess we unlocked the panel when we solved the others. Phew!

  30. Open both panels. There's a letter code and a battery. Remove the battery.

  31. Turn the clock over. Wow! A clue....

  32. The bits that aren't filled in spell out the code! Brilliant!

    EHLP - I assume it was meant to be HELP?

  33. Remove the screw, close the panel, remove it, unscrew the screw, click to the left and remove the yellow screw.

  34. Well we did it. Click the red arrow in the bottom right hand corner of the back of the clock.

  35. Whoops! I forgot this was a Dismantlement game. There must be a bomb here somewhere.... Click on the white panel at the bottom of the clock. Open it.

  36. Oh goody. Guess this person really isn't a morning kind of guy.

  37. WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?!

  38. Well it's a clock right? So add them together and you've got two numbers right? Could they be represented any other way?

  39. Try making them 12 hour time!

  40. So that would be 3 and 6.

  41. Turn the deactivate screw. Click on the orange panel under the timer and remove the screw.

  42. Remove the bomb and bomb casing.

Ta da!

fun - stuck on the bomb - any help folks?

So annoying. Got the speaker off, and the fan. And now I'm stuck. I think I need to do the color chip next, but I can't figure out what the color scheme should be.

I fail

Hm, stuck already. One part was easy, now I have no idea what to do =p

I do believe that's the first time I've ever completed one of these games without getting asplode. I sho' do luh these games!

How far did you make it WoeBoeT? I'm about 3/4 done...stuck on a 4 letter word.

Me too. I can't figure out what are those dots for each day of the week. I've tried to set the time and alarm according to the dots but nothing happened...

Aaaand out. Two parts were a bit odder than the rest, but not really taxing. The bomb puzzle was almost the easiest one in the set...

MAYA, the dots aren't important yet. Disregard them until their use becomes obvious.

I'm up to the bomb, can't figure it out.

I am stuck on multicolored squares. If you click on back side on the left you see countries flags. As for alarm you need to set bottom alarm and middle time

I'm up to the battery, and I can't figure out what to do with it. I think I set the password correctly...

I've finished the spade puzzle, but now I'm stumped.

Maya
About the dots

How many days? How many dots? You will know where to use them when you see it

Have you looked everywhere?

The top and the side give hints

Grr. I got the fan and the speaker off.

I found the 'country names' and flags.

I think next is take the Color puzzle (heart) off.

but darned if I can do that.

or if I can figure out what diamond is.

any help?

About the Bomb

Think of what you're dismantling

It's a clock, don't use 24 hours, use 12

Thanks, Pete that was just what I needed to finish.

About the color puzzle

If only there was a way to relate color to a pattern

Have you looked under the speaker?

How do the letters relate to three letter codes you've seen elsewhere

In order to solve the heart puzzle you need to

find the flags on the back

then you need to

remove the speaker to find another hint

then

combine the two hints together

Thanks Nimdok, Zero-K and Pete. :o)

For the the Battery Puzzle

Try pretending the glass is half empty, rather than half full

The four-letter password is written in the negative spaces.

I feel really dumb for this one; I can't even get the fan or speaker off and I've tried every combo I can think of for the front and clicked everything in the back. :p Come on, power of posting!

I'm stuck on getting the fan off....

Well, power of posting kinda worked. And I breezed through the rest of it. :D

Just remember:

The SET setting is key.

The only parts where I really got annoyed were (a) removing the gray pieces to reveal the yellow screws, which just never seemed like a clear thing to do, and (b) the fact that the alarm sounds *just like* my alarm clock.

I would have preferred if the bottom two puzzles hadn't been locked at the start -- having multiple puzzles available at once was one of the cool things about the original Radio. But games.ebb.jp seems to like drifting towards more linear, ordered, puzzles (as evidenced by Tea Canister), and I suppose that's all right.

:S Well I have done everything up to no 34 on the walkthrough but I cannot seem to click on the red arrow bottom right corner. Have reloaded and tried again. What am I doing wrong?

Yay, I managed to not blow up this time.

I'm the same as stupidcheeseboy, got to the red arrow to remove the panel in the lower right hand corner but nothing happens. I'm using Firefox if it makes a difference. I'm bummed, got all the way to this point with no hints, but can't seem to click the red arrow.

Disregard my last comment, I realized that I never removed one of the grey tiles that was hiding a yellow screw. The bomb puzzle was pretty straight forward too, this one was much easier than the last dismantlement and I quite enjoyed it.

Lol thanks Username. I also had grey panels to remove
(facepalm)

I can't help but wonder what we'll be dismantling next. I keep thinking it'll be a cell phone or a TV remote.

it was fun. I really liked the puzzles in this one, but there was a bit too much pixel hunting.

And I was just going to sub this, too...

Having trouble just starting the game. It downloaded 100% then showed a white space with writing, and a place to unscrew? But when I click on that nothing happens. Some help Please.

These are so much fun!

Hmm. The one change I would've liked is some indication of where I could click to reveal another face of the clock -- I had to check the walkthrough for all three that weren't just the front or back. Otherwise, delightful.

Jay, Can you help me please. I noticed this with the games that I cant play such as this one and the ones that don't let me save my games. when I right click on the game and go to settings where it says currently used it has a zero. How do I change that? I clicked the ? and read and re-read but still cant figure it out. Tried clicking on the folder pictured there but nothing happens. It is already open. The slider is about in the middle. I tried putting it to the far right and that doesnt help. With the games that do work for me the currently used has a number like 2 or 4. so I know that's what I have to change but how?? Your help will be much appreciated.
Thank you

[I'm sorry, but this game doesn't automatically save for me either. When I right-click and choose Settings while viewing this game, I see: "How much information can game.ebb.jb store on your computer?" The slider is set to 100KB, and the amount used shows "0KB". I don't know why it's not saving, but it's not. I'm guessing that the same is true for you. -Jay]

The format for this page is seriously messed up. On to the game, I'm going to rate it lowly because I clicked the sides, top, and bottom of the clock looking for that stuff, but you can't do it if you're facing the front of the clock. Lame.

This reminds me of when I played 'Dismantlement: Radio'. When I went to work I was asked how my weekend was. To be quirkily obscure I meant answer; "Fun, I played dismantlement." Unfortunately I came off as quirkily psychotic by answering; "Fun, I played dismemberment." Although I corrected myself, I'm fairly certain I'm still on a watch-list somewhere.

I love these games! But I could do with less pixel-hunting.

It took me forever to find that area to the left with all the flags. It was such a small area.

Other than that, it was really enjoyable. I do wish the bomb puzzle had been a little more challenging, though.

Mnah. I think the first one "Radio" was excellent. The latter ones are too mathy for me. I can't enjoy them.

Is there a FAQ place on this site? I asked this before about what to do about loading a game when it only goes to 78 % and then stops. But I forgot where the answer was. If you could please answer it again, i will be sure to write it down so I'll always have it. thank you

[In the footer of every page, click "Support". -Jay]

Another worthy addition to the Dismantlement series. A nice twist at the very end, too. Second best addition to the series, IMO. Much better than the tea canister.

This was a good Dismantlement game (kinda redundant - they're all good). The main reason I needed the walkthrough was to know where to click to find the

yellow screws, and the clues on the sides.

Dismantlement: screwdriver...with a screwdriver! Wonder where the bomb would go.

''Maybe next time the developers should try for something larger. VCR anyone? Or maybe a television set? How about a Toyota? The sky's the limit!'' I can imagine the title... Dismantlement: Sky.

I like this game, It's so funny

Ahh, I love this series. :] Would definitely be great if they made a larger thing for us to take apart, though, I have to agree...though I do think "Dismantlement: Sky" would be going just a -little- too far.

Dismantlement: Earth, maybe? Pop a few screws off of each continent, pop the Pacific up, solve a few puzzles in the Marianas Trench with some clues you found under Greenland and Australia, then try to disarm a bomb at the North Pole before poor Santa goes explodey? I'd go for that. :]

I hated the fact that there was no indication that there was anywhere specific to click to reach the top or side(s) of the clock. (This is a common peeve of mine re: this series, but this episode seemed unusually bad in that regard.)

Disassembling is good. Random clicking is bad.

I totally agree with you OtherBill, even with the walkthrough, it took me some time to find the top and left sides. I rate the game 4 stars only because of this.

I can never load these dismantlement games... this one got stuck on 87%

It's a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there. Seems everything in this poor soul's house is rigged to explode. It would make daily life a little too interesting.

How about some coffee? OK, Just let me open the can...what's this? Kaboom!

Well, time to change the oil...what's this in the filter? Kaboom!

Now what's wrong with this pen? Out of ink, maybe? Let's just unscrew the top...you know the rest.

Um... I know this is going to sound stupid, but how do I

take off the speaker?

Step 12 in the walkthrough doesn't work for me. I heard the alarm, but there are no screws on the top for me to unscrew. I already did the heart puzzle, so this is next, right?

And out!!!! yessss thanks for all the clues, I would'nt have managed to dimantle the clock without them :S I really suck at this...

took the panel off the bottom, not seeing the screws at 3 and 9 on the top left of the 4 sections :\

ahh! i mostly agree with you guys that this is a worthy dismantlement installment, if a little reduntant. but gahh! so frustrating. I waited to use the walkthrough until i was well and truly stuck on the battery.

I took out the battery and got the clue on the front, figured out that it spelled help and entered it into the back. But it wont work! i tried it with the battery out and in, i tried putting the letters in scrambled and as the word help and it just won't unlock!

what am i doing wrong?

A few weeks late, but...

@ellebelle: You may want to look again.

It doesn't quite spell "help"...

but rather "E H L P" You're just getting the first 2 letters mixed up.

Grr, I can't open the white panel at the bottom of the clock

@mo

Had the same problem,
be sure you really have it all uncovered, ground has to be one continous green plate

What is the combo for the speaker!!! I CANNOT figure it out!!!!
