DOOORS 4

elleFrom the very first time 58Works placed us in front of a door and said, "Go ahead, go on through... if you can figure out how," we were charmed. Straightening our shoulders, grinning widely, we sauntered over to it and it opened. The next one wasn't as simple as that: a key was to be found before any door was to be got past. After that, the machinations involved in door opening continued to evolve. "Alright," we thought, "so we're playing games here, are we?" But from that moment on, the fixation was irrevocably set. Which is why we're so happy to see DOOORS 4, a surprisingly inventive endless escape escape game available to play on your iOS or Android mobile device. As usual in these matters, your goal in DOOORS 4 boils down to finding what needs doing to unlock and exit the door. This can mean a lot of things, though—tapping to move obstacles or using helpful tools, swiping to push things out of the way or operating a dial, tilting and shaking your device for... well, various reasons in puzzle purposes.

DOOORS 4Variety is the key descriptor here. You'll never know what you'll get from one level to the next in DOOORS 4, even if you have some idea after playing the others in the series. It begins with 40 levels, with more anticipated in a later update, and each is so different from the next, what is simple may be challenging just because you're not sure which of the many methods for solving is needed next. Also to be expected from 58Works, the design is clean and engaging, with a very responsive and intuitive user interface. Yet even more so than its predecessors, DOOORS 4 is apt to bring frustration. The wide assortment of puzzle types means you can be sailing right along, tapping your toes and humming to yourself, "Easy peasy!" when suddenly you hit a wall. Interspersed between levels replete with straight-forward logic are some that are coyly abstruse.

Finding the answer almost always involves experimentation, but there are a few times you'll go past educated inference into baffled guesswork. Yet those moments actually keep this game exciting and fresh, something that's sure to catch the attention of those around you—either because they're baffled at why you keep shaking your device this way and that or because you've grabbed them by the arm and pleaded, "What would you do here to solve this?" Since the release of DOOORS, there have been many games of this type to come on the scene, such as 40x Escape and 100 Doors 2013. But in this sub-genre 58Works remains above and beyond the rest, providing a tactile, dynamic experience rather than a static, solely mental one. It may not be what you're used to doing when playing a puzzle game yet, by taking full advantage of your mobile device's unique features, DOOORS 4 will immerse you in a game beyond the typical, always keeping you on your toes with new ways to have fun.

DOOORS 4 WALKTHROUGH

LEVEL 1

  • Open the red box on the left and get the KEY.

  • Use the KEY to unlock and open the door.

  • Move through the doorway to exit to the next level.

LEVEL 2

  • Using a swiping motion, slide the bottom board to the right so it's no longer blocking the door.

  • Then, do the same for the top board.

  • Tap the door to open it and exit to the next level.

LEVEL 3

  • Tilt your device slightly to the right until the door lines up with the outline in the center of the scene.

    • If you pass the center, tilt your device the other direction, adjusting carefully, tapping quickly as soon as the door is in the middle.

  • Tap the door to open it and exit.

LEVEL 4

  • Pick up the WRENCH from under the table on the right.

  • Zoom in on the left table and use the WRENCH there to open a panel.

  • Push the button.

  • Back up, open the door and exit.

LEVEL 5

  • Pick up the BASKETBALL from the bottom corner of the scene (if you don't see it, tilt your device until it rolls into view).

  • With the BASKETBALL selected, tap the screen where you want to throw it...timing your tosses just ahead of the hoop to score a basket.

  • Do that three times until all three indicator lights are green.

  • Tap the door to open it and exit.

LEVEL 6

  • Tilt your device to the right until the bar on the right fills green, lighting the green button above it.

  • Then tilt it to the left until the bar on the left bar fills up with green and lights the left button.

LEVEL 7

  • Look behind the pedestal on the left to find a PITCHFORK.

  • Back up and use the PITCHFORK to pop the big red balloon.

    • Note the time on the clock - 10:30.

  • Tap to turn the dials on the left and right pedestals to match the time...

    • The pedestal on the right is shorter, so it represents the little hand: set its dial at 10.

    • The taller pedestal on the left represents the big hand: set its dial to 6.

LEVEL 8

  • Rub your fingers back and forth, as if using a crayon, to color the outline of the door.

  • Once the door is fully colored in, slide it upwards to open it.

LEVEL 9

  • Note the design above the door...

    • Red is where ears would be, green is for the mouth, yellow the nose, and blue are eyes.

  • Tap each of the four squares until a symbol of the correct facial feature is shown.

LEVEL 10

  • Tap the "dooorsman" to view the pendent he's wearing...

    • The design is made up of four arrows, all pointing inwards at each other.

  • Back up and tap behind the back of the lounge chair to see four buttons...

    • Tap each button to change the direction of the arrows, until each are pointing toward the center.

  • Open the door and exit.

LEVEL 11

  • Those little guys are dancing. You should dance, too...

    • Shake your device up and down until all the green bars above the door are lit up.

LEVEL 12

  • Look at the anchors above the door...some are pointed down, some are pointed up...

    • Also note that the down-pointing anchors have one peg while the up-pointing anchors have two pegs...which is useful information considering the last two anchors are on the floor.

  • There are six poles along the foreground, one for each anchor...

    • If the anchor is points up--or has two pegs--leave the pole up.

    • If the anchor is points down--or has one peg--push the pole down.

    • SOLUTION:

      • DOWN, DOWN, UP, DOWN, UP, DOWN

LEVEL 13

  • The numbers in the foreground are partially sunk, but there's enough to tell what they say: 45x100.

    • Doing the math, that's 4,500.

  • Tap each of the four squares to change the number of dots to match the sum...

    • FOUR DOTS, FIVE DOTS, BLANK, BLANK

LEVEL 14

  • Note the design above the door: it's made of four triangles, each pointing a different direction, each a different shade from white to black.

  • Notice also the line running from the left to the right side of the screen: it starts out black and changes to dark grey, light grey, then white.

  • Change arrows on each of the four buttons to face the same direction as its corresponding triangle...

    • From left to right, the arrows should point...
      EAST, WEST, NORTH, NORTHEAST

LEVEL 15

  • Tap on the wall directly to the right of the door to view it more closely: use the WRENCH to remove the screw and open the panel...

    • get the LIGHTER.

  • Use the LIGHTER on the panel on the right side of the scene, under the flame icon...

    • The pattern that appears looks like numbers: 235

  • Tap the buttons on the left side of the screen to change their number of dots...

    • 2 dots
      3 dots
      5 dots

LEVEL 16

  • When a ball is in the grey shaded band, tap it to stop it.

    • You must act quick to solve this one...the balls stay immobile for only a few seconds.

  • When all four balls are stopped inside the shaded area at the same time, the door will unlock.

    • Quickly open the door before the balls start moving again.

LEVEL 17

  • There's a lightswitch behind the plant on the right; move the plant and turn the lights off.

    • Notice the pattern of lights on the wall? That tells you the order to tap each button. Now turn the lights back on and tap each button as was shown:

      • BOTTOM RIGHT, BOTTOM LEFT, MIDDLE RIGHT, TOP RIGHT, MIDDLE LEFT, TOP LEFT

LEVEL 18

  • Slide the knob on the left into the lowest position. This removes one set of bars.

  • Now use the LIGHTER to burn the rope and slide the knob on the right to the far left position. This removes the other set of bars.

  • Open the door and go on through.

LEVEL 19

  • Tilt your device all the way on its side and look at the pattern above the door...

    • Each symbol is at an angle, so think of the shape more than how it's oriented.

  • Change the symbol on each of the four buttons to match...

    • X, H, upsidedown Y, X

LEVEL 20

  • Pull down the handles of each string of balls. Notice that one ball on each string is marked by a white dot. Note the color of each marked ball.

  • Zoom in on the metal panel in the foreground; note that its handle is missing bolts...

    • Put the BOLTS from your inventory on the handle.

    • Use the WRENCH to tighten the bolts.

  • Back up and tap the handle to raise the box.

  • Change the color on each button to match the colors of the marked balls:

    • RED, BLACK, BLUE, GREEN

LEVEL 21

  • The clue above the door is telling you to use 2 fingers to swipe, sliding the door either up, down, left or right.

  • Your goal is to move the yellow square up and out of the grid on the door.

    • From the starting point, the yellow square in the center, swipe...

    • LEFT, DOWN, DOWN, DOWN

  • When correct, the number "21" will show on the door. Then tap the door to open it and exit.

LEVEL 22

  • Swipe right to slide the large Easter Isle statue head in the foreground out of the way.

  • The clue above the door is two arrows facing inwards, toward each other. So, tap the heads on the left and right sides of the door to turn them until each faces the door...

    • The head on the left should face right.

    • The head on the right should face left.

LEVEL 23

  • Look under the desk on the right to find a PENCIL.

  • Zoom in on the paper on the desk on the left....

    • Use the PENCIL on the paper to reveal the clue.

  • Back up and adjust each of the four knobs so they resemble the clue:

    • Top Left Square: move knob to lower right corner.

    • Bottom Left: move knob to the upper right corner.

    • Top Right: move knob to the lower left corner.

    • Bottom Right: move knob to the upper left corner.

LEVEL 24

  • There's a lightswitch barely visible in the lower left corner of the wall...

    • Tap the lightswitch to turn out the lights.

    • Notice the symbols that light up on the wall.

    • Turn the lights back on.

    • Press a couple of the four round buttons and turn the lights back off. Notice the different symbols?

  • Your goal is the change the symbols to correspond to the body parts of the dooorsman asleep on the floor...

    • From the starting position (a heart), tap each button...

    • FAR LEFT: 2 taps (intestines)

    • MIDDLE LEFT: 1 tap (stomach)

    • MIDDLE RIGHT: 0 taps (heart)

    • FAR RIGHT: 3 taps (brain)

  • Turn lights on and off as needed to check your progress. When all symbols are in the correct order (intestines, stomach, heart, brain), turn on the lights, open the door, and exit.

LEVEL 25

  • Tilting your device to do so, roll the ball along the tracks back and forth three times, until all three lights above the door are lit green and the door opens.

  • Then, tilt your device to the left to force the ball off the tracks and out of your way.

LEVEL 26

  • Examine the green-knobbed cupboard on the top right side of the door...

    • There's a PINK KEY stuck in its crease.

    • Use the PITCHFORK to get the PINK KEY.

  • Back up then zoom in on the pink-knobbed cupboard on the bottom left side of the door:

    • Use the PINK KEY to unlock it.

    • Take the YELLOW KEY.

  • Zoom in on the yellow-knobbed cupboard on the top left side of the door:

    • Unlock it with the YELLOW KEY.

    • Take the BLUE KEY.

  • Use the BLUE KEY to open the blue-knobbed cupboard on the bottom right side of the door....

    • Inside you see the green key, but you don't need that.

    • LOOK more closely inside the blue cupboard:

      • There is a piece of paper with a peeling edge stuck to the back of the blue cupboard's door. Peel back the paper to find a GOLD KEY!

  • Use the GOLD KEY to unlock the door and exit.

LEVEL 27

  • If you hold your finger on the button on the left, the green bar will fill.

  • The clue on the right side of the door tells you how far to fill the bar...

    • ...to the shaded band just slightly below the top.

  • Holding your finger on the left button, fill the left bar only until it reaches the same level as indicated in the blue on the right.

  • Do this four times until the door unlocks.

LEVEL 28

  • Tap the marked white tile on the floor to turn it pink, causing a clue to show above the door.

    • Count the total number of pink-shaded squares in each clue segment; this includes added up half-squares. So, for example, the first segment has 7 squares (6 whole and 2 halves).

  • For each of the four 2x4 grids, tap until you've shaded the correct number of squares green, matching with the clue.

    • 7, 3, 6, 4

LEVEL 29

  • Notice how the buttons are lighting up? This puzzle is a bit like whack-a-mole: when a button lights up, tap it.

  • After successfully tapping five green-lit buttons in a row, the door will unlock.

LEVEL 30

  • Tilt your device to the left until a CAUTION CONE slides into view...

    • Pick up the CONE then pick up the CANNON BALL that was under it.

  • Put the CANNON BALL in the cannon and your LIGHTER to light the cannon's fuse.

  • With the dinosaur gone, you can safely open the door and exit.

LEVEL 31

  • Pick up the STEPSTOOL from the lower left corner of the scene.

  • Stack your STEPSTOOL on top of the stool to the right of the door.

  • Press the button above the door...

    • A Russian phrase appears in the box.

  • Using up or down swipes, change the colors to the left of the door to match the Russian flag:

    • WHITE
      BLUE
      RED

LEVEL 31

  • Pick up the STEPSTOOL from the lower left corner of the scene.

  • Stack your STEPSTOOL on top of the stool to the right of the door.

  • Press the button above the door...

    • A Russian phrase appears in the box.

  • Using up or down swipes, change the colors to the left of the door to match the Russian flag:

    • WHITE
      BLUE
      RED

LEVEL 32

  • A clue is stretched out across the wall above the door...looking close, you can see they're two very wide numbers...

    • To properly view the whole clue, you'll need to tilt your device all the way to the left and press the red button. The numbers panel will slide down for a moment. Quickly note the leftmost number.

    • Then tilt it all the way to the right and press the red button again; now you can see the far right number.

  • Now that you have the 4-digit number, tap the squares on either side of the door to change the number of dots showing:

    • 5 0 8 3

LEVEL 33

  • Every few seconds, the screen will go dark. You'll need to shake your device from side to side to get the lights to come back on.

  • Using a swiping motion, raise up the chain on the left. Then, raise up the chain on the right. A round shield with a pattern on it will be lowered into the scene.

    • Look at the pattern as if it's arrows that are overlapping each other. This tells you the direction to turn buttons next to the door.

  • Tap each of the four buttons to change the direction its arrow is pointing...

    • BOTTOM LEFT ---- BOTTOM RIGHT
      TOP LEFT ---------- TOP RIGHT

LEVEL 34

  • Using two hands, pull open the wrought iron gate by simultaneously swiping, sliding the right side gate to the right of the scene while sliding the left side of the gate to the left.

  • Now carefully tilt your device until the white dot on the large purple ball is pointing left (as shown in the clue above the door).

  • When you have the ball in the correct position, the red bar above the door will turn green. Quickly tap the door to open it before the ball moves out of position.

LEVEL 35

  • Lift up the cushions on the left side of the room and examine the pattern underneath:

    • There's 9 swirly patterns here, but they're not all going the same direction. Find the two that are going a different direction...

      • TOP LEFT CORNER and BOTTOM RIGHT CORNER.

    • Barely visible on the wall behind the couch is a 3x3 panel of buttons. Tap behind the couch to go there.

      • Tap the top left and bottom right buttons to checkmark them.

    • Back up, open the door, and exit.

LEVEL 36

  • Tap a button and watch as a ball is tossed in the background...

    • Notice the color of the ball? The next button you tap needs to be the same color as the ball that was just tossed.

  • Tap the colored buttons to match the tossed ball six times in a row to unlock the door.

    • The solution to this puzzle changes each time you play it.

LEVEL 37

  • Tilt your device backwards until the scene is upside down...this causes the wooden panel to temporarily slide upwards.

    • Note the time on all the clocks. There is one decoy clock.

  • Tap each button to change the direction of its arrow, matching four of the clocks (ignore the 7:00 clock).

    • From left to right, the arrows should point...
      EAST, SOUTHWEST, WEST, NORTH

LEVEL 38

  • Look behind the bookshelves to find a XYLOPHONE HAMMER.

  • Now study the bookshelves and take note of a few important features...

    • Each shelf has a different number of books on it (from 1 to 6).

    • The shape of the bookcase resembles the shape of a xylophone.

  • Zoom in on the xylophone on the left side of the scene...

    • Using the XYLOPHONE HAMMER, tap each key in the correct order...

      • The size of a shelf corresponds to the size of the xylophone key while the number of books on it indicates in which order it is tapped.

      • SOLUTION:
        From largest to smallest...
        6th, 3rd, 1st, 5th, 2nd, 4th

    • When played correctly, a panel in the xylophone opens up.

    • Back up and take the HANDLE from the xylophone.

  • There is a hole in the wall to the right side of the door; zoom in on it:

    • Put the PENCIL inside the hole.

    • Add the HANDLE to the pencil.

    • Turn the newly formed crank.

  • Back up, open the door and exit.

LEVEL 39

  • Put the CAUTION CONE on the dooorsman's head.

  • Open the door to see a tangle of branches.

    • Use the LIGHTER to burn the branches down.

LEVEL 40

  • Take the GREEN and PINK BALLS from the table.

  • Pick up the GREY BALL from the floor.

Level 21 has me stumped. Hint, anyone?

It's the one with the blue door bearing the d-shaped design and the "2" surrounded by arrows pointing outwards. Nothing I try has any effect!

Ace, if you're still stuck on level 37:

Tilt up to get rid of the wooden barrier. And ignore the 7:00 clock; the others are what you need.
