A Bonte Escape Walkthrough

Alright, I put together a walkthrough. Here is how to complete all the steps:

Gathering items:

1. Click the red mat and collect the scrap of paper.

2. Turn right, and pick up funnel #1 from the counter.

3. Open the right cabinet, and pick up the glass.

4. Turn right, click under the cage, and pick up funnel #2.

5. Turn right, click the chair cushion, and collect the scrap of paper.

6. Get funnel #3 from the tree pot.

7. Note the three paintings of circles on the wall, from left to right: blue, orange, yellow.

The computer:

1. The computer's password interface consists of an array with the numbers 0-9. Clearly, we have to push them in some order.

2. Click on the scraps of paper and the item magnifier to view them. Note how they have a jagged edge, as if they would fit together.

If you put them together, it makes the code 121946.

3. Input this code into the computer to gain access.

4. Note the 5 colors in the desktop background, from left to right: green, orange, blue, yellow and gray.

5. Exploring the directory tree, we find 3 sets of numbers, found as follows:

right->left->left->2:2

right->middle->1:5

right->right->left->4:9

That's all we can do here.

Feeding the bird:

1. Looking at the cage, we see a box with three circular windows in it, and a switch, connected to the feeding tube. Where have we seen three circles before?

The paintings on the walls. We need to fill the feeding box with liquid to make the colors from the paintings. Each circle takes 2 glasses of liquid to fill.

2. You also need to use the funnels with the holes at the top of the box before you can fill them.

3. Here's how to fill each circle:

Left circle - 2 glasses of water. To get water:

Put your glass on the water cooler and click to fill. Then, pick up the glass, and use it on the funnel.

Middle circle - 2 glasses of orange juice. To get orange juice:

Fill a glass with water and use it on the tree next to the chair(not the plant on top of the cage) to get an orange.

Go to the cabinet and open the left door. Put the empty glass by the juicer, and use the orange on the juicer. Pick up your glass, and use it on the funnel.

Right circle - 1 glass of water and 1 glass of orange juice. Apparently, water is clear now, not blue.

4. Press the switch and watch the bird drink. Take note of the pattern of chirps the bird makes.

3, then 1, then 5.

That's all we can do here.

Opening the safe:

1. We need 4 numbers to open the safe.

2. Think back to the numbers we got from the computer. They aren't ratios - think of them as pairs of numbers, instead.

3. The number on the left is the position in the code, and the number on the right is the number that goes in that spot.

4. From the computer, we have:
1 5
2 2
3 ?
4 9

5. You will need to find what the missing number would be, check the painting on the wall for a clue.

6. The painting looks something like this: ..8. indicating an "8" in the 3rd position. This is exactly what we need! So the code would be:

5289

7. Input that into the safe and click the handle to open. And, woah, another safe!

8. This one is a color code. Where have we seen a sequence of 5 colors before?

That's right, the computer desktop.

Input, from left to right, green-orange-blue-yellow-gray

For the colorblind, the number of clicks: 3-4-2-1-0

9. Input that into the safe, and click the handle to open. Another safe?!?!?

10. Now we need a sequence of 3 numbers. Where have we seen 3 numbers before?

11. Remember the pattern of chirps the bird made.

3, then 1, then 5.

12. Input 3 1 5 into the safe, and click the handle to open.

13. Get the key, and use it on the door.

And you're out!

A Bonte Escape Walkthrough

I don't know why anybody would need one, but here is a walk-through. This has to be one of the easiest escape games I have ever seen. A little tedious though.

Let's get to it.

1. Lift the front right corner of the carpet, take paper.

2. Go left. Take the funnel from next to the tree.

3. Lift the cushion on the chair to get the piece of paper.

4. Note the pictures.

Blue, Orange, Yellow.

5. Go left. Look under the cage, get the funnel. I have no idea what the significance of the picture is; as far as I can tell, it has none.

6. Go left. Take the funnel from the desk. Take the glass from the right cupboard.

7. Zoom in on the computer. Look at your pieces of paper-they are obviously cut apart, so you know which one goes first.

Hmmm, 121 946.

Click on the numbers on the computer: 121946 (there is no clicking sound or any visible sign that you clicked on anything.

8. Now you have the computer on: a file folder.

And some really ugly wallpaper.

Note the colors of the wallpaper.

green, orange, blue, yellow, brown.

9. Open the file folder: more file folders! Open each and every folder. In three of them you will find documents with what look like ratios. Most of them have nothing.

1:5 4:9 2:2

Now comes the "fun" part.

1. Put the glass in the cooler, push the button, collect your full glass of water. Go right. You can water the plant on the cage but it doesn't do anything. Put the three funnels in the holes on top of the tank.

2. Go right. Water the tree. Get orange.

3. Go left (or right) twice. Open the left side of the desk, and put your glass into the juicer. Juice the orange, take the glass of orange juice.

4. Go right once, and pour the glass of orange juice into the middle funnel. Repeat the above steps again. Do it a third time and put ONE glass of orange juice in the right hand funnel.

5. Get another glass of water and put it in the left funnel. Repeat. Repeat, except this time put it in the right funnel.

See? Blue, Orange, Yellow. Pull the handle, and the bird starts flying around.

Chirping.

6. Pay attention to his chirp.

3-1-5

Wasn't that fun? Let's escape.

1. Go to the safe. Remember the ratios?

1:5 4:9 2:2 Maybe the first number should be a 5, the fourth number will be a 9, and the second number will be a 2. But what about the third?

Time for the brute force approach. Put in 5-2-0-9. Pull the handle. Nope. Change the 0 to a 1 and try again. Eventually you will get the right number and the safe will open.

(It's 8)

2. Now we have a color puzzle. Where have we seen a sequence of 5 colors?

The computer wallpaper. Put those colors in that order.

green, orange, blue, yellow, brown

3. Now we have another number puzzle. What three digit numbers have we come across?

Think of the bird.

He's chirping in a pattern.

3-1-5

And there's the key, your outta here!

July 22, 2010 5:17 PM

Argh! Got it almost solved, but I cannot figure out the bird's message! Any help with the "twits"?

July 22, 2010 5:22 PM

Power of posting: got out! Looks like I understood the bird's message perfectly, I just tried to use it in the wrong place...

July 22, 2010 5:29 PM

So, I 've

filled up the blue and orange dots and I have the codes off of the computer. But what do I do with them? And where do I find the yellow dot?

July 22, 2010 5:30 PM

My first new game and I'm stuck already.

Got the code for the laptop and the orange from watering the tree next to the couch but can't get the safe code.

Oh that was cute

nice all round. The Bonte done it again

I could post you a walkthru but you really wont need it cos if can escape and get first on the comments board it could be tooo easy

Gets a tea rating of a full teapot - early grey

Good game, one of the puzzles had me stumped, but a bit of thought and tada, made it out.

you need to check all the folders on the lap top...the numbers are not ratios and there is one missing

July 22, 2010 5:39 PM

Beaten!!!
I did use some help from the comments about the game though...

It was a really interesting game, I liked all the logical puzzles. My only problem was with the safe code.

Good Birdy.

July 22, 2010 5:42 PM

Thanks Vienna. I kind of rely on walkthroughs but I'm trying to do them by myself most of the time.

July 22, 2010 5:44 PM

An enjoyable little distraction. Really can't be that difficult if I just made it through on my own though, that never happens... :-)

I am completely flummoxed...I think the heat is affecting my brain.

For the life of me I cannot make sense of the

ratios...that aren't really ratios?

July 22, 2010 5:49 PM

I love room escape games, but I always rely on a walkthrough. Never fails. I think too logically a lot of the time.

How in the world do I figure out the safe code? I've figured out that I need to fill on three tubs with the designated/color coordinated liquid. How do I figure out the safe combo?

July 22, 2010 5:50 PM

Need help with the lock combination!!!! please!

For the white safe, the 'ratios that aren't ratios'

A helpful idea is to replace the : with a =

I'm stuck on the red box which apparently has something to do with the bird, which for the life of me isn't making a noise unless I click on it.

Doesn't seem too bad, but I got frustrated by all the mindless clicking. Specifically:

Click the glass, click the watercooler, click the button on the watercooler, click the glass again, click to move to the other screen, click the plant, click the orange, click to move to another screen, click to open the drawer, click the orange, click the juicer, realize you forgot to put the glass there, start over.

I stopped playing when I realized I'd have to repeat this series more than once to solve a particular puzzle.

I get it now.. hadn't found the third funnel, thought it was in the safe. Turns out it's available from the beginning.

July 22, 2010 6:00 PM

Help me with the plant!!!! i keep watering and nothing!!! i know i need an orange but what the hell is it??!!!!

July 22, 2010 6:08 PM

I cannot for the life of me figure out how to open the red safe.

Does it have something to do with the picture in the room with the bird?

Just can't get the last safe code...

July 22, 2010 6:14 PM

Very fun! Only needed two hints to get through, which is a record for me.

Got stuck on the third number after I figured out the ratios . . . it took me a minute to realize that I could just cycle through the digits looking for the last number!

I can't find a way to make a yellow liquid for the bird.

looks like we need the awesome grinnyp to write us a walkthrough :)

July 22, 2010 6:24 PM

A BONTE ESCAPE WALKTHROUGH

1. Click on rug, take paper, go right.

2. Take funnel on table, open right door, take glass fill glass with water.

3. Go right, click under cage, take funnel, go right.

4. Take funnel from planter, water plant, take orange. Click seat cushion, take paper scrap. Note the painting above (blue, orange and yellow). Go left.

5. Go left (or right) twice. Open left cabinet door, place glass, put orange on juicer. Go right.

6. Place three funnels in holes above machine. Pour juice in second funnel. Repeat. Then pour plain water in first funnel. Repeat. Then place one glass of juice and one glass of water in third funnel (matching painting in room with chair). Hit red switch. Bird chirps 3x, 1x, 5x. Note painting above shows ..8. (_ _ 8 _ OR 3:8 OR 3=8).

7. Go right. Click on computer, enter code from paper scraps (121946). Open file. Find three codes (2:2, 1:5, 4:9 OR 1=5, 2=2, 4=9). Make note of colors on computer screen after closing files (green, orange, blue, yellow, brown). Go Left.

8. Enter code from files and painting on safe (5289). Open safe. Enter colors from computer screen on brown box. Open brown box. Enter bird chirps on red safe. Open red safe. Take key, Use key on door. ESCAPE!

July 22, 2010 6:24 PM

@awolf

To get the yellow liquid, try mixing what you have already.

Water + Orange juice

July 22, 2010 6:27 PM

I want to turn that little bird into a yellow liquid...pls help with 3-number code!

awolf:

Yellow is a pale, watered-down version of orange. Also, remember that you can put 2 glasses of liquid into each circle.

I'm stuck on the safe code. I have 3 ratios, and a weird picture on the wall that I think must be a clue and looks like:

oo8o

July 22, 2010 6:33 PM

once you have given the liquids to the bird,

it starts twittering and the number of "twit"s is the red safe code
like "twit-twit twit twit-twit-twit" would be 2-1-3

July 22, 2010 6:35 PM

alaria: thanks for the hint!

for the last safe code:

use the number of "twits" given by the bird once he gets the magic formula. there will be three sets of "twits"

July 22, 2010 6:37 PM

For the yellow color

A hint would be "orange and white make yellow". I use the term "white" loosely.

July 22, 2010 6:42 PM

i finally finished it without a walthrough!!!! i'm so happy!!!. tp things:

the yellow thing is one glass orange and one water
the combination of the safe the bird will "sing" it after you give it the food and water.

July 22, 2010 6:44 PM

For the yellow:

Try mixing things up. :)

July 22, 2010 6:45 PM

i only got stuck on the white safe. figured everything else out though.

It would be great to get a hint-through for this instead of an all-out spoiler like we have so far.

Anyone?

July 22, 2010 7:28 PM

This isn't a surprise, but I finished. The main part I was stuck on was getting the yellow circle, but then most people are stuck there too, right? Well, now what?

The picture by the bird is the clue to the white safe.

It shows an 8 in the third position. Combined with the "ratios," this give the full code.

Pretty easy, only parts that weren't obvious were

the third funnel and how to get the orange

July 22, 2010 9:35 PM

the interesting thing about the "ratios" is that

the first terms in each one indicate the order the second terms should appear, -and- can be substituted for each other in the two scraps of paper and still give you the right code.

July 22, 2010 9:37 PM

@alaira

"There seems to be a pattern, and you need to find what the missing set of number would be, but I couldn't figure it out."

"...a weird picture on the wall that I think must be a clue and looks like:

oo8o"

/rolls eyes

Man, I usually find Bonte games to be solvable (when I need a walkthrough for practially any other room-escape game).
I got stuck on the manila-coloured circle and needed a little hinting for the 4-digit safe code.

Love me some Bonte!

another fun game by bonte. keep em coming!

I figured out the premise, and had the blue and orange compartments filled. I was convinced there was bird seed in the final brown safe, but couldn't figure out how to get the combination for it. For some reason, I began punching in numbers in sequence, starting with 312, then 412, 512, etc. After trying this for about a minute, it opened. Wasn't I surprised when I found the key to the door inside.

OrvalB, thank you for the excellent walkthrough, even if your preamble was insulting to those of us who needed a hint.

As for the brute force approach you used when trying to figure out the safe, you missed the significance of the

picture above the cage. Notice . . 8 . ?

-Joe

Vic, same thing happened here. I couldn't even figure out that

You had to mix water and orange juice in the funnel. I thought there was a lemon somewhere.

But the concepts of

watering, squeezing, and mixing

were interesting additions to an escape game.

Intresting. Just a note about the part the walkthrough refers to as trial and error:

the hint for the third digit is on the wall. In fact, I found that one before I figured any other digit.

@orvalb: there is, in fact, a clicking sound when you type the numbers on the laptop.

July 25, 2010 5:34 AM

There is actually a way to know the missing third number for the code.
You can find it on the picture of the wall.

July 25, 2010 8:39 PM

The 3rd digit for the safe can be figured out. Look at the

Painting with the orange dots

There is a number in place of a third dot

8

It did seem a little random and inconsistent though. Meh.

July 26, 2010 4:05 AM

ohhhhhhhhh what a cute birdie

To the third number on the safe:

Noticed the painting with orange dots on the wall?

December 4, 2010 9:51 AM

The picture on the wall tells you that the 3rd digit of the fridge code (or safe whatever that thing is) is 8.

yay! escaped without looking at the walkthrough at all
