Best Game award winner at the Flash Forward Festival in San Francisco, Chasm is a point-and-click adventure game that stands head-and-shoulders above the rest of the pack. Containing top-notch production values that rivals many commercial products, the animation is excellent with colors and cell shaded graphics that resemble a Warner Bros. Loony-Toons cartoon.

Chasm Walkthrough

The Beginning

  1. After the intro, put your mouse over Joe when he stops moving. It will change to a hand icon.

  2. Click on Joe, and he will go across a bridge of wooden beams. After he walks for a bit, a piece of wood will collapse under Joe. He catches himself, so all is well.

Getting Inside the Structure

  1. Joe will continue along the path. When he stops and looks at you, click on the path in front of Joe. He will walk in that direction.

  2. Joe will round the corner and come to a spot where water is pouring into the chasm from the broken part of the channel. He can
    traverse to the very end of the bridge right before the place where the gap begins; so click anywhere in this area for him to continue.

  3. Click the inside of the channel (to Joe's left). He will hop to this area safely.

  4. Now move your mouse to the left, (behind Joe), and click. He will go down a tunnel and arrive at a dead end. (Note that the door
    is closed).

  5. Click on the ladder so Joe can climb it.

Inside the Structure

  1. When Joe reaches the top, you can click on the windows and see outside to get an idea of what's ahead. But we won't be attending to these spots just yet. For now, walk Joe over to the blue lever, and click it so that he can turn it.

  2. Walk Joe over to the window at the far top right of the screen and click the window. Joe will make a short trip, and you will see him pass by a window overlooking the broken channel.

  3. When Joe comes to a stop, click the round window on the right wall for Joe to go through it.

Getting to the Top

  1. You should now see an overhead view of the chasm. Click the top of the channel that Joe is in; he will make his way to a point where water is pouring through a hole.

  2. Make Joe climb the ladder.

  3. When he stops, click the ladder on the pipe, and he will climb it.

  4. When Joe stops again, he will be on a plank with 3 valves. Click the valve near him. (This is "valve 3", counting from left to right).

  5. As Joe turns this valve, it lowers a door that dams the flowing water. The trapdoor below is now accessible.

Crossing the Chasm - The Two Valves

  1. Click on the rope below the middle valve so that it drops, and let Joe climb down the rope.

  2. Click on the trapdoor to open it, and then again so that Joe will climb down inside.

  3. Now click the bridge. Joe will make his way across.

  4. Let him go up the ladder to another trapdoor. Click once for it to open, and again to make him go through.

  5. After he emerges, click the bottom of the screen so that Joe walks toward you.

  6. Make Joe climb the ladder to the narrow ledge, and then around the corner to the right.

  7. Joe will be near 2 valves. Take him to the valve between the 2 wheels and get him to turn it.

Back to the Three Valves

  1. Now you need to get Joe back to that rope. Click the right side of the ledge that Joe is standing on. (This is where he entered this area). He will go back to the ladder.

  2. Climb down the ladder, go down through the trapdoor, back across the bridge, and then up through the first trapdoor. Voila, there is the rope.

  3. Click the rope so Joe can climb up. Note that the 3rd valve is lower than the 1st 2. This is because Joe already turned it.

  4. Now, turn valves 1 and 2 to lower the doors, and turn the 3rd valve to lift that door again. Now Joe needs to get to the other side of the chasm where there are only 2 valves again. (See "Crossing the Chasm - The Two Valves").

The Two Valves - Round Two

  1. Once you are at the 2 valves again, you need to turn them both. (You already closed the valve between the 2 wheels; it now needs to be opened, and the other needs to be closed). You will see a brief scene with water flowing. Joe will run along the ledge and stop to watch the water flowing near a pipe.

Pink Belts

  1. Walk Joe to the end of the ledge where he is watching the water, and then around that corner. Continue along past the ladder (do not go down the ladder — keep moving) — and you will see a pink, spinning belt.

  2. Get Joe close to the belt and then click on it. He will jump up and grab it, and ride to the top.

  3. Click the far end of the plank that Joe is on (towards the top of your screen).

  4. Click the wooden planks ahead of Joe so that he will continue. He will stop near a hanging sack.

To the Telescope or the Sack?

  1. At this point, you can either take a detour to the telescope to get a good view of the water system, or continue on via the sack. From the telescope, you may be able to to figure out how the system works and solve the rest of the puzzle. If you'd like to try the detour, continue to the next spoiler. If not, continue here...

  2. For now, we shall bypass the sack to get a good look at the water system. Click on the ledge in the distance (above Joe).

  3. Then click to the left of the screen.

  4. When Joe stops, click on the wooden step on the lower right of the screen. Joe will make his way along these precarious steps.

  5. When he stops near a curving tower, click ahead of him so that he will continue.

  6. Now click the telescope for a better look.

    • To move up or down, left click on the screen and drag in either direction.

    • To zoom in, place the mouse on the outer circle of the telescope view and drag downward.

    • To zoom out, follow the same procedure and drag upward.

    • To exit the telescope view, click anywhere outside of the glass lens.

Returning to the Sack

  1. Click the wooden steps below the telescope and Joe will make his merry way back to the ledge. Now go down the tunnel and he will reach the sack again.

The Sack

  1. Click on the sack so Joe can jump in.

  2. Click to the left of the screen (in front of Joe), and the sack will make its way to the other side.

  3. To get him out, click the ground.

  4. Now click the ledge in the distance, and Joe will make his way along it. He will arrive at the top of a set of ledges with wooden steps. Now, he needs to get to the ground level to tackle this problem.

Maze of Pipes

  1. Oh Joy. A maze. Get Joe inside the 4th pipe (from the left).

  2. Keep going straight ahead, past tunnel exits labled "D1", "D2", and "D3".

  3. When Joe gets to exit "D4", make a left into that tunnel. He will now be at juncture "C4A", where light is pouring through.

  4. Click to the left of Joe, and he will emerge at "C4".

  5. Click the tunnel hole at the top of the screen.

  6. Go left at "C5", and left at "B5". He will arrive at "A5", where there is a door.

  7. Open the door and click the ladder so Joe can climb up. Joe is now at door "A9".

  8. Once inside door "A9", go straight ahead, past "B9", and make a left at "B10".

  9. No, you are NOT going to that light ahead. When you pass "A10", you will see another light at the end of that tunnel. Head straight towards it. Make Joe walk along the ledge until he reaches a wooden plank and a valve.

  10. Open the valve and Joe will surf along with the water. He thinks he's finally made it. (Not yet!)

The Belts Revisited

  1. So after quite a ride and a bit of banging up, Joe ends up back on the ledge. Now walk Joe along the ledge, around the corner, and back to those pink belts. This time, we are choosing the belt in the middle. Grab it in the same way you did earlier. Joe will land on a small ledge.

  2. Send Joe into the dark entrance, and he will make his way again
    to the sack.

  3. When the sack stops moving, click the ledge to Joe's right so he can get out. This time when he jumps out, the sack retreats to its former spot. Tough luck, Joe.

The Beginning is the End

  1. Well, there is nothing to do now except to go down the road (back toward the sack). Joe will end up near the broken channel, which is where he was in the beginning of the game. Get him back to the control room as you did earlier.

  2. Joe needs to turn the lever again so that the direction of the water will head once more to Chasmton. After this, he will do the rest to get back to his town, and you will finally be able to relax and watch him cruise home.

Congratulations! \o/

Hania,

You need to lower the first and second wheel on the opposite side to the belts (go near wheel and double click)then go to the belt side and lower the first and second wheel. Go back to the opposite side to the belts and raise the first wheel only. Then go back to the belts and raise first wheel, then go to belt side and raise first wheel, They should then work. Then just jump onto the moving belt to go up to the high level.

My hardest part was just figuring out that you could just use the belts to go up to the next level once they were moving.

To get up the pipes, it's helpful to see the layout of the pipes. When you're at the conveyer belt place, go to the left gear/water paddle. It has water feed shoot, click it. This will allow you to see the mess of pipes you have to climb up. You may want to save the screen by hitting the PrintScreen button and then pasting it into paint. That will keep a display of the screen, which you can reference as a map when you're going up the pipes. When you're in the pipes "forward" means you're moving up a pipe (for example, from A0 to A1) and going left or right means your switching pipes (from, say, A1 to B1.) What you will have to notice is three things: on level C4 there's a hole, which means you can stick your head and not get flushed out. After that you go over left a few pipes to pipe A, something like section A6 or A7 I guess. At this point, there's a door you can step out of, and a ladder just outside that. If you've got the pipe map for referencing, you can barely make it out on the left side. Go up the ladder, wait for the water to go by, and continue up. The tunnel will merge into pipe B, then just go left and back into pipe A and continue up ("forward".) Then you're out.

The rest is pretty easy, and I won't ruin it ;)

What to do after you have solved the problem with the flushing pipes?
What do you do after you have surfed down from the top of the dam?

Here are some hints for you. Do not read further if you want to solve it on your own.

The purpose of being on the top of that dam in the first place, is to get the smaller pink conveyor belt moving. The water is makeing the upper wheel
rotate.

Now, what is the purpose of the whole game? If you skipped the intro, shame on you. If not you know the purpose is to get the water back to Chasmville.
Go back to the game and try some more with the purpose in mind.

Ok, more hints ....

The smaller upper pink belt gave you a way to get from that side of the chasm, and back to the side of the chasm where you started. When you enter the broken aquaduct, you see a sign on the floor, pointing to Chasmville. This is where you need to get the water to flow. Up the ladder is what I call the water gate control room. It has a magnificent view with 3 windows and an open door.

So what about the water gate control room?
In the water gate control room, you could control the flow of the water.
If you had some water flowing there.

How do you do that? Go to the game and ponder some more ...

Hmm, do you still want some more hints?

You need to route the water into the spare aquaduct. The tunnel that you go through with the view to the broken aquaduct is the spare aquaduct.

I am sure you are now able to go back to the game, and solve the rest of the puzzle.

Not?

Sure?

Here is yet another hint.

By surfing down from the dam, and starting the small pink conveyor belt, you got another route open to you back to the water gate control room.

It is necessary to have the second route open to you to solve the puzzle of how to route some water back to Chasmville.

Try to figure it out now. Play the game some more.

Back again?
Ok, here is a final hint from me.

At the screen with all the valves that control the gates ...

Why do you think it is two pipes crossing the chasm?
One is enough to make the lower, and longer of the two pink conveyor belts go around.
The other pipe has another purpose ...

Now you can play the game, and solve the puzzle.
Hope these hints have been useful.

Spoiler Alert!!

I came upon this method my accident. All you need to do is get to the part were you see all the pipes and belts from the overhead view. Close the gate on the far left side of the screen, diverting the water thru the tunnel with the three windows (the screen will follow the water current if you did it right). Now right click and click "Rewind" you'll start the game over but with the water flowing out the side of the mountain, just go to the room with the two doors that open and close with the lever in the middle of the room. Turn the lever to dirrect the water towards town and Viola!

Love the site Jay, escpecially all the puzzle games where you have to get out of a locked room. Keeps me from going crazy at work.

  1. Click the wooden steps below the telescope and Joe will make his merry way back to the ledge. Now go down the tunnel and he will reach the sack again.

The Sack

  1. Click on the sack so Joe can jump in.

  2. Click to the left of the screen (in front of Joe), and the sack will make its way to the other side.

  3. To get him out, click the ground.

  4. Now click the ledge in the distance, and Joe will make his way along it. He will arrive at the top of a set of ledges with wooden steps. Now, he needs to get to the ground level to tackle this problem.

Maze of Pipes

  1. Oh Joy. A maze. Get Joe inside the 4th pipe (from the left).

  2. Keep going straight ahead, past tunnel exits labled "D1", "D2", and "D3".

  3. When Joe gets to exit "D4", make a left into that tunnel. He will now be at juncture "C4A", where light is pouring through.

  4. Click to the left of Joe, and he will emerge at "C4".

  5. Click the tunnel hole at the top of the screen.

  6. Go left at "C5", and left at "B5". He will arrive at "A5", where there is a door.

  7. Open the door and click the ladder so Joe can climb up. Joe is now at door "A9".

  8. Once inside door "A9", go straight ahead, past "B9", and make a left at "B10".

  9. No, you are NOT going to that light ahead. When you pass "A10", you will see another light at the end of that tunnel. Head straight towards it. Make Joe walk along the ledge until he reaches a wooden plank and a valve.

  10. Open the valve and Joe will surf along with the water. He thinks he's finally made it. (Not yet!)

The Belts Revisited

  1. So after quite a ride and a bit of banging up, Joe ends up back on the ledge. Now walk Joe along the ledge, around the corner, and back to those pink belts. This time, we are choosing the belt in the middle. Grab it in the same way you did earlier. Joe will land on a small ledge.

  2. Send Joe into the dark entrance, and he will make his way again
    to the sack.

  3. When the sack stops moving, click the ledge to Joe's right so he can get out. This time when he jumps out, the sack retreats to its former spot. Tough luck, Joe.

The Beginning is the End

  1. Well, there is nothing to do now except to go down the road (back toward the sack). Joe will end up near the broken channel, which is where he was in the beginning of the game. Get him back to the control room as you did earlier.

  2. Joe needs to turn the lever again so that the direction of the water will head once more to Chasmton. After this, he will do the rest to get back to his town, and you will finally be able to relax and watch him cruise home.

Congratulations! \o/

Okay I got up the pipes, surfed down the pipe, lost my board got laughed at by that annoying bird and ended up at the bag. I went across and to my avail I couldn't get over to the other side. Was I not supposed to have lost the board? Am I going to have to start all over again? What did I do wrong? Both conveyors were working but as you know you can't get up the trap door if water is flowing out of the large conveyor so I turned it off to go inspect. Since I can't save or anything I'll have to start all over tomorrow. I know I can't expect much for a free game but my goodness. It almost hurts to get so far then to get stuck because then you'll just have to start all over again. If you can help please post here or send me an email.

Seems like everyone here on the board is ignoring the telescope (which is accessible on the 'high path' right after you travel up the larger of the two waterwheel conveyor belts - click on the little path in the background before you get to pulley bag #1). Using the telescope's zoom it's easy to map your route up the pipe maze. From that vantage point, you can easily see the ladder going up the "A" pipe network, as well as the breathing hole in C pipe and the broken pipe trap in the B pipe complex near the end. After that, the game should be a breeze to the end. Great work from the ABC flash team!

I just love this game. A great adventure game, that needs some good old fashioned logic to solve.

And do not just bang your head into the pipes without thinking. It is a way in the game to get a very good clue of how to ascend the pipes.

I had posted this before, but I guess it didn't show up. For all of you who have experienced the "glitch", whereby the screen freezes, and you seem unable to go on:
Try right-clicking and choosing "Forward" multiple times until you advance to the next "scene". I got stuck on the bag-pully one time, and thought I would be unable to continue, but used "Forward" and was able to get it to inch into the next scene, and from there it got back on track. Don't click "Back" however, or the game will restart(and especially don't use this to CHEAT!).

Whoooo i finnally did it
The bit i got stuck on was near the very end when i had the water flowing in all sorts of places but i figured it out.

you have to close all the gates on both sides. Then you open the very last gate on the side WITHOUT the bands so that the water flows into the side WITH the bands but is stopped by a gate. Then you go down the rope and onto the side WITH the bands and climb over the gate and open the gate that is stopping the water from flowing. This allows the water to go through the second pipe and flow into the controll room. Now its easy you just go up the short rubber band, into the controll room and turn the switch, now you've got the water to flow into chasmton and the electricty and crops are doing fine again XD.

Hi Megan,

It's been a long while since I played this one, but I recall having a similar time with that puzzle. From what I remember, the answer was right in front of me.

I do remember there is a ladder you need to climb up or down, and I think you may have just missed something along the way that allows you to get to where you need to be. Keep trying, you'll find it. =)

Sorry I can't be more help than that.

Chasmton:

Hi everyone, I tried the following and it worked for me:

1- Once you get to the three valves near the rope you need to close all of them and go down to the other side using the rope and ladder.
2- Close the left vale and go back to open the right vale on the other side, so the water can follow through the channel.
3- Cross to the other side again open the left valve and close the right valve then go through the right belt to the top.
4- Using the sack find your way to the telescope (very helpful to find your way through the dam pips) or to the main pipes at the bottom of the dam.
5- This step is modified with thanks from Jay: since water flushes every few seconds we have to wait and estimate roughly the time for each flush, using the third pipe from the left wait until next flush and go through it to the fourth gate or pipe C4, wait a sec and go to the main pipe turn left then left then to the opposite pipe to find a door go through that door (A5) then up the ladder to another door (A9) wait for the next flush and then go to the main pipe then left, then left, then left and out of the hole to the top of the dam.
6- Slide happily to the channel, watch your head :-), if not open, open the left valve and close the right valve.
7- Go up thought the small (left) belt and find your way to the main valve and turn it to the chasmton.

I hope this helps

Cheers,

Gaz

i found the best way up the pipes was to look through the telescope and zoom in so you had some idea where to go. then have little post-it notes on the screen to know where to click so to avoid getting washed back down.

very good logic involved and glad the bird got what it deserved at the ened.

i remember back in 2005 when a friend of mine showed me the link to this game. i was instantly hooked, and passed it to all of my friends. i was two hours into the game, when another friend of mine beat it in under half an hour! with a little fiddling, i did get it though.
this still remains as one of my favorite puzzle games of all time. i give props to the creators, and to jay for recommending this gem. i just replayed the game, and it's still as good as ever!

however, for those who are still stuck...

let me give you this fair warning: the first time i attempted this game, i found out that it is possible to LOSE... not necessarily by dying, but by creating a situation in which it is impossible to move forward with the game. of course, the game doesn't let you know this, you have to surrender by yourself. my advice...

there is a certain position that the walls that control the waterflow through the chasm (the three gears on the left side and the two on the right side) have to be in before you go to the dam. think about where each wall can redirect the water carefully, and arrange the setup before you go.

happy playing!

One of the most astonishing things about this game is its incredible replay value. The puzzles are all so unique, and varied, that it's hard to remember what you did last time, so you get to solve them all over again.

This game is really very interesting in its flow. It's not just one puzzle or mini-game after another, it really requires you to use some problem-solving skills.

I'd pay a good $30 to $50 for a game with 6 to 12 of these kind of chapters in it. Great story. Fun graphics. Fun gameplay.

The only thing wrong was that I did not know how to get back into the control room tunnel. I knew the water needed to be directed through there, but I exited the tunnel with a wide angle shot and really only came back across the entrace by accident.

Also, I the ending for this chapter could have been improved. There was no Grand Final at six as I expected. Nor did the citizens drink beer or celebrate. Oh well.

hey
alrite, so I did the part where you go up the ladder, and turn the switch then you go through the door in the upper right hand corner.. then i went through the blue hole in the wall, then i went up and around to the ladder, then went up again, then I got to the 3 gears at the top. I closed the left gear, and all the water went through the chasm.. then i closed the right one, and it stopped. blah blah blah, then I went through the trap door, across the bridge to the other side, then I came up, and went up the little ladder, and i kept walking then they did the short video showing the whole maze of pipes. and if yu go around the other way, there is two gears, andi turned both of them, but nothing really happened and I just got more confused.
but I'm completly lost now, I don't know what to do

can someone help me! Please

It is possible to get stuck at the end after you go up the pipes. I was crossed to the first side via the small conveyor and bag and was messing with the valves. I realized that I needed to get back to the conveyor side but I couldn't because the bag had already crossed back and valve was shut between the trapdoor on the conveyor side and the ladder.

If you have the valves set up right before going up the pipes (the water flows through the tunnel with 3 windows) then you don't need to change them after the pipes.

What a totally brilliant game! Great graphics, great gameplay and I loved the laughing kookaburra bird. Only complaint is that there should have been more of it! :D

for the dam you go up 4 times in tube c and go right 1. If you do it quick enough you end up in a hole. Wait for the water to calm down, the go left 1 and up 1, go left 2 and through the door. Climb to the top and wait at the door for the water to pass and make a mad dash up 1 right 1 up 1 left 1 up 1 and you're there.

I thought this game is way to hard i mean I know what what to do except find a way back to town:
when you get to the 3 valves close the valve to the far right then click on the rope and slide down, after that go through the trapdoor and across the bridge when you climb up the ladder and go inside climb the other ladder and click on the sides until you see the 2 vales click the one to the left to close it then go to the wheel that's turning and click it then walk until you see a bag and rope & ride across. I'm tired of typing so good bye

haha, solved that part. hey guys, I know the solution to those who are stuck. After you've finished doing the pipe part, you have to go on the short rubber band and into the hole.Then you will know what to do. :)

hallo to all! please, when you reach the end of the pipes, how do you close the valve and go out of them? I am half out half in the last pipe but I see no choice that I can use to stop the water or go out.. Am I missing something?

i love this game. fun, but kinda hard.

the dam part was really hard though all that timing gives a person with no hand to eye co-ordination a hard time.


once you beat that part its not that hard. this game is really short.

Guess what this is?

ALMOST COMPLETE WALKTHROUGH (see end for why this is only almost complete...)

The Basics:

Click on Joe to get him moving. A plank will fall off - no way back now! Don't worry though. Continue forward, around and into the dry end of the broken waterway. Go up the ladder. A nice place - get a good perspective of where you are by looking at the windows if you want - then click on the middle. Turn the lever (notice, one side has an arrow with the word "chasmtown" on it, pointing to a gate) to open the door, and head down the stairs at the north-east. If you continue forward, you will meet a stopped door with water on the other side. There is no way to get through. Instead, go to through the pipe on the right. Welcome to what i will call, the System. If you go left with the current, you will arive at a dead end. Go north against the current. Climb 2 ladders and arrive at the top. Click on the rope. You now have a fast way up and down. There are 3 gears here, that will stop the water and increase the flow to certain areas.

The Other Side of the System:

The simplist way to get to the other side (the eastern side) is to turn the last gear, go down the rope, down the trap door, over the bridge, and up. However, what i will call the Elevators will not be turning (those wheels). Turn the second gear, and you won't be able to get up (you will be hit by water...glug glug...)So, begin by turning the middle and the last gears. Down the rope, trap door, bridge, ect., to the other side. Head down the screen, and up the ladder. Go around the turn so that you are in front of the Elevators. You should now see 2 gears on this side. Turn the one at the leftmost. Now retrace your steps to the first side, and unturn the last gear. Now, re-retrace your steps to the Elevators. Nothing yet. Go back up to the front of the Elevators, and unturn the gear. The tall Elevator should be turning now! Go around, and hold on as you ride to the top. Onward!

New Teritory With New Transportion:

You should see a bag on a rope on a pulley gear thing. As one would guess, jump in to get to the other side. Click on the left though, to move. Before you do that though, notice the path on the upper right. Click on it, to go through a cave. To the left, you will encounter a MAGNIFICENT view of the Pipes (i'll call them that). Nothing else though. To the right is a series of steps, and then a telescope to view the Pipes more clearly. Now back to that bag on a pulley. Head over to the other side, and jump on out. Theres to paths here - one down, which leads to the other end of the broken bridge, and the one on the upper left. That one leads to a series of steps down to a shore, with tubes. This is the bottom end of the Pipes. Climb up the wrong one at the wrong time, and you will be washed down (and birds with laugh at you.)

Up the Pipes:

This is the hard part - Go to the telecope area, and REMEMBER - REMEMBER THE RIGHT PATH! Another way to help would be to use the Chasm Pipes map that someone posted. If you don't want to, heres what to do: Go to the 4th pipe in the row. Go up four times and to the left for a short break. Continue left and up once, left 2 more times and enter the door. Climb up the ladder. Wait for the water to blow over, then enter the next door. Stick to the left and keep going. If you get to the top, you should be on top of the dam.

Dam to the Finish: I'm afraid i can't say, because at the last moment ARGG! The game glitched. Yes it did. No matter WHAT i clicked or what i did, the game did not respond. I clicked on every gear lever walkable place and... no. Sigh. Figure out the ending yourself. I can say that after the dam, you click on the wheel, then surf! Then bump your head. Then i was trying to click on some stuff on the first side of the System, but then... yeah. Good luck!

I found this game years ago on Jig but never managed to get past the dam pipes until I found it again a few days ago.

The telescope came in very handy. Apparently I never found it the first time I had played. Very neat game.

Why is everybody so glad the laughing bird gets electrocuted in the end? I let Joe get washed down The Pipes several times on purpose - just to see the bird laughing his pants off! And besides, the bird is a kookaburra, a native Australian bird, whose call sounds very much like human laughter. So the chances are it's not even laughing at you... Well, just maybe.

When I come to think of it: the bird actually laughs at Joe, so why would you be offended? You wouldn't identify yourself with a platypus, now would you?

if anyone is still playing this, I have the water flowing thru the unbroken channel. However, I cannot figure out how to get back to the room that has the single turnstyle (that opens the door to the town. Please help me get back to that room. I am flooded out when I climb down the rope. Thanks in advance.

Thank you so much Aaron Rivers! Without you I would still be stuck! I first played this game about two years ago and got stuck in the same place as I was stuck this morning. Then I saw your comment and it was so simple then. Thank you!

This is a great game, Jay. Thank you for posting it. Probably the most difficult game I've ever played!

I'm not English. I am an Arab, but I understand some of the words so I will try help you
The solution is as follows:
1))I will start from the pipeline. Written on the side of each tube name. So you enter the c> c4> c5> b5> a5 when entering for the c4 out of the hole and go back to the same path C TO c5 and COMPLETE :: After the exit door, climb the ladder. Wait until the water falls from the top, completed a road through B9> A10 left

what do you do with that big long slide?

Lol this game just sums up my worst fears.

First, drowning. I don't like not breathing and I don't like water in my lungs.

Second, heights. Just... heights.

Fourth, small spaces. Namely, small TUNNELS. I'm not claustrophobic but being inside those

pipes...

I don't think there's much air in there.

Then it went and made a combo out of all of them. XP

Water + pipes + GOING UP? = ._.

Being inside a small tunnel while sliding down a water slide is fine maybe (I did it twice in my lifetime and I'm quite proud of that) but going up? No! I'm glad I'm not a platypus lol.

In total I just need to see the sky and feel some breeze in order to be comfortable. XP

Enough ranting though!

Well made flash game. Reminds me of old times when point and click games were like this and none of those newfaggled ones where you have to have a mini game just to get an item.

And I'm not that old for reminiscing!

Smooth, polished and the sound effects were perfect. The bird got annoying though.

The real winner here is the puzzle. I don't think I played a point and click adventure without an inventory or my memory is failing me.

P.S. I'm not old!
