Mosaika

JohnBFire Maple Games has a special talent with point-and-click adventure titles. The team's latest effort, Mosaika, retains the tap-based formula established in The Lost City and The Secret of Grisly Manor, sending you to a mysterious world with a simple goal in mind. This time around, though, the Myst-like experience is more streamlined, with puzzles that don't go out of their way to twist your gray matter into knots.

MosaikaA crash in the next room wakes you from an unsteady sleep, and suddenly you realize there are strange symbols above the fireplace in your uncle's home. You soon discover a secret world hidden behind the wall, one filled with magic, intrigue, and strange contraptions with missing pieces. You begin your journey through Mosaika with one thought: what's that frog doing here, why was it waiting for me, and why can it talk?

Tap points on the path or the edges of the screen to navigate through Mosaika. You can zoom in on certain areas to take a closer look, pressing the circular arrow to zoom back out when you're done. Tap the backpack icon to open the inventory where you can examine or use items, check your journal, or get a quick clue about what to do next. You won't get stuck often, but the built-in hint system does a great job of pointing you in the right direction when you need it.

Mosaika feels very much like Fire Maple's previous releases. Things are a bit simpler this time around, though. Puzzles aren't as intricate, requiring a minimum number of inventory items and featuring a solution that can be found elsewhere in the game. The answers are never thrown in your face, so you still have to do a bit of thinking to find the solution. You won't feel frustration, only excitement and success. The visuals are absolutely gorgeous, and the atmosphere of slow, quiet exploration keeps you engaged from beginning to end.

Mosaika Walkthrough

Chapter 1

Part 1: Leaving Uncle's House

Hallway

  1. You'll start the game inside the bedroom. Go through the open door to enter the hallway.

  2. Tap the open box on the floor under the windowsill to look inside.

    • Open the folded note to find a pattern of diamonds segmented into black and white triangles. This clue is also added to your Journal.

  3. Zoom out and tap the bottom of the screen to move back and return to the bedroom.

Bedroom

  1. Examine the front of the mantel above the fireplace.

    • It's our first puzzle! At a glance you can tell that the wooden buttons on the mantel are shaped exactly like the diamond pattern you just saw on the note.

    • Let's inspect the note again in your Journal now. Pay close attention to which triangle segments of each diamond are black and which are white.

    • The black sections indicate which buttons on the mantel need to be pressed down, while the white triangles are buttons that need to be left untouched.

    • Therefore, on the left diamond:

      • Push down the lower left and upper right triangular buttons.

    • On the middle diamond:

      • Push down the upper left, upper right, and lower right triangular buttons.

    • And on the right diamond:

      • Push down the upper right and lower right diamonds.

First Shrine

  1. Tap the Frog to speak with it. It will explain the situation to you and also ask for some fireflies.

  2. In this scene you'll also see a sealed magical door and a shrine with a spherical notch at its center. There's nothing we can do about these objects yet, so we'll have to return later.

  3. Tap the road at the left side of the screen to walk towards the Planetarium Entrance.

Planetarium Entrance

  1. Inspect the bottom of the large potted plant at the corner of the building.

Planetarium Entrance

  1. Tap the front doors to the building to zoom in.

    • To open the doors you must use the door knockers in the correct order.

    • Refer to the clues from the flower wall to find the solution.

    • Hit the door knockers in the same pattern as the numbered flowers in the Journal diagram.

    • Flowers on the left side represent the left door knocker and flowers on the right side represent the right door knocker.

    • For example, flower 1 is on the left side, so hit the left door knocker first.

    • The complete order is:

      • Left, Left, Right, Left, Left, Right, Right.

      • Solution

  2. After the puzzle is solved you can go through the open doors to enter the Planetarium Building.

Planetarium Building

  1. Examine the scale on the table at the left side of the room.

    • Place the SUN STATUE (from the ground at the Fountain) on to the scale to begin a new puzzle.

    • Balance the weights of Sun statues and Moon statues on both sides of the scale.

    • Not only must both sides be equal in total weight, but the weight of both types of statues (Sun and Moon) must be equal on each side as well.

    • First find the weight of all the statues by adding the numbers at the front of each one.

    • The total sum of all statues is 18, therefore you know that each side of the scale must weigh 9.

      • Additionally, the sum of the Moon statues is 10, so you know the weight of Moon statues on each side must equal 5.

      • The sum of the Sun statues is 8, so the weight of the Sun statues on each side must equal 4.

    • Now organize the weights following those rules to balance the scales.
