Golden Heart

In this latest escape-the-room game by TomaTea, you are whisked away to an enchanting little café in Paris, France. Each brain-teaser in Golden Heart is just complex enough to require thought without being overly perplexing. Although, one puzzle will be much easier to those who know how to read and play music, our review provides all the necessary information to elucidate even the tone deaf.

GOLDEN HEART WALKTHROUGH

Part One: Putting Together Clues, Gathering Items and Opening Doors

When you begin Golden Heart, you're facing a wall of shelves and cupboards. Click on each area to look more closely:

There is a locked music box, a locked cage (in which you can see the golden heart necklace), four locked cupboard doors, and a padlocked lattice gate. These are the doors you'll have to get past before you can find the exit key and leave the game.

Back up to view the whole room again then turn left. Now you're facing the front window and two booths. Focusing in on each table, you'll find some heart charms. You'll also find that:

Each table also has a number; notice how each table has a colored flower? Take note of that.

One more item to pick up from table 1: Matches.

Turn left again to see the door. Go ahead and try it. Don't take my word for it that it's locked. On either side of the door are two shelves. Focus on each:

On the right shelf . . .

There is a green heart on along with a clock. Hey, the time is even correct. Nothing else usual about it, though, I guess.


On the left shelf . . .

There are two more heart pieces and some interesting postcards. Let's read what's written on back . . .

Hmm. No secret love letters but there is a picture of a chef doing a happy dance (or practicing a tortured yoga stance . . .). Stash that away, maybe it will be fun to show friends back home.

Back up again, turn left again: the trees design on the wall is pretty, but better have a gander at these last two booths. These two tables are also . . .

numbered #2 and #4, each has different colored flowers, and some heart charms. Make more note of what you see and gather up the hearts.

While at number 4, reach down between the left side of the table and the chair to pick up an ivory piano key.

At this point, you should have enough information to open a cupboard door. Let's look at the cupboards again . . .

One of the nice things about TomaTea is that, when you click on a puzzle without sufficient information to solve it, a message pops up: "I have no clue how to solve this." Find the door without this message and you know you're prepared to decode it.

The four colors for the first code are . . .

found on each table.

Table 1 has a purple flower on it; table 2 a blue flower; table 3's is yellow and red is on table 4. That means . . .

Enter the colors, from left to right - PURPLE - BLUE - YELLOW - RED. If you're having trouble seeing colors . . .

click on the left button 4 times, the middle-left button 3 times, the middle-right button 1 time, and the right button 2 times.

When you open the cupboard, you'll get: a silver key and a silver rectangle with three colored hearts on it.

Use the key to open the padlocked lattice gate. Now you see a kitchen-area. Let's explore some more.

On the brown door is a funny chef figure. Looks like his arms, legs and head can be moved into different positions . . .

Use the drawing you found earlier behind the postcard:

Tilt his head to the left (your left). Send his left arm (on your right) strait up from the shoulder then at a 45-degree angle at the elbow so that it goes behind his head. His right arm (your left) goes straight out, then bend his right elbow at a 45-degree angle again. Four his legs, you need only to change the position of his feet, bending his knees in so that his left toe points straight down while his right is at a slight angle.

When you have opened the brown door, you'll discover: an ivory piano key, a stock pot and a green heart charm. Three colored hearts are painted on the shelf. Since those hearts look familiar . . .

Put the silver rectangle over them. Now the hearts have changed color. Note the color and sequence.

Now back up to focus on the stove:

Grab the heart there. Click on the dial to open the gas on the stove then use matches to light the flame. The empty pot, a logical choice, won't fit on the burner for some reason, though . . .

Go over to the sink:

Pick up another heart, turn on the water, and fill the pot.

Now the pot of water will sit on the stove flames. It gets hot but nothing more happens.

What else can we look at here in the kitchen?

Just a coffee maker, but there's no coffee around here (some café, eh?)

Well, pick up two more hearts and . . . wait a minute, something bronze is stuck in the machine's grate. Of course that ever-handy screwdriver is also missing.

Come to think of it, the dial on the coffee machine looks like another common item. One we saw in the other room . . .

The clock.

It's time to solve more puzzles and enter another code.

Go back to the first room's cupboards, click on the code box for the bottom left cupboard. You're ready to solve this based on what you found in the kitchen:

Purple Heart - Orange Heart - Green Heart.

Or, click on the left heart 4 times, the middle heart 2 times, and the right heart 6 times.

Inside this cupboard you'll get another heart charm and a red disc with five circular cut-outs on it. One is green. This shape should remind you of two things you've seen so far . . .

The clock.

The coffee machine.

Put all the clues together in the right way and in the right place and soon you'll have the bottom rightside cupboard open . . .

From the position of the coffee maker's dial, the green dot coordinates with the 10 o'clock position on the clock. Put the red disk over the clock with the green circle over the 10. Now you have four other numbers revealed.

The size of the circles tells you the order of the numbers. Just like in counting, go from smallest to biggest; in this case, smallest circle to biggest circle.

5 2 7 8

Enter the code from the clock to get the screwdriver and a red slip of paper with another clue on it.

Go back to the kitchen, now we can use the screwdriver to get that bronze item from the coffee machine: a music box key. While here, have another look at that red slip of paper . . .

Fold it over and little green bubbles are shown. Bubbles remind me of a nice hot bubble bath…or maybe just hot water…

Put the paper over the steaming pot of water to get a new code: PIXY

Back out in the main room, we have what we need to open the last cupboard, using the clue from the red slip of paper. Inside we get an elaborate gold key and another ivory piano key.


First go to the gold cage, use the key to take the locket. Have a look inside:

Take out a piece of paper illustrated with musical notes and a keyboard diagram on each side. This clue tells you what you need to know about the piano keys and playing music here at in Golden Heart. Examine the paper in your inventory to study (and learn from) each side of the clue.

Next, go over to the music box, use the bronze turn-key to open it, and place the 3 missing ivory keys back on the piano (if you don't have them all, you'll need to re-trace your steps to find them).

Part Two: Solving the Piano Puzzle and Getting Out


This is a challenging but fun logic puzzle for those who can't read sheet music. MUCH more simple if you do. But it IS possible to solve without resorting to google or spoilers for help. Give it a try!

If you'd like help getting started, here's a HINT:

On the first side of the clue, look at where each musical note is in relationship to the piano keys:

• The first note corresponds to an ivory key (the first one on left)

• The sheet music diagram shows simple scale, each note goes up by one position.

• So coordinate the position of the note (black dot) to the position of the keys.

In plainer terms:


• The piano keys are, from left to right: c, d, e, f, g, a, b.

• The lowest position of the musical notes represents the first "c" on the keyboard.

• Each step up on the sheet music represents those notes; so on the scale that goes up, starting with the lowest position: c, d, e, f, g, a, b.


The second side of the clue is misleading because it also shows the piano keyboard but take notice of how the sheet music changed. This tells you which notes you have to play and in what order.

Use the simple scale to help you get acquainted with each key's relationship to the notes on the sheet music to figure out how to play this song.

If you're still having trouble, open this spoiler:

From left to right, the ivory keys are: C ! D ! E ; F ! G ! A ! B

So, play the notes in this order: c, c, d, f, g, e, d, g, g.

Or . . .

Just number the keys from left to right: 1 ! 2 ! 3 ; 4 ! 5! 6 ! 7

Click each in this order: 1, 1, 2, 4, 3, 2, 5, 5

When you have finished your piano lesson and successfully played the correct notes, grab the last key and head for the door. Whew!

A note about the heart charms:

You are not required to find all the hearts before you can exit the game. Whether or not this makes the ending more - or less - special is, perhaps, just a matter of a perspective.

Tomatea may not make the most challenging escapes, but they're well made, logical, and fun to play. While pixel hunting continues to be a problem, they do something that, as far as I know, nobody else does: they don't let you attempt to enter a code until you're able to find the solution. This is good for 2 reasons: you can't brute force a code, and you know what you should be solving and what you shouldn't, so you don't waste time looking at the wrong thing. If you have no idea how to solve this, then you know you shouldn't be trying just yet. I like it.

Except the exceptional game designers always make it logically clear which codes go with which clues. A really top-tier escaper will incorporate that into the puzzle. That's why no one else really does it. For some of us, it removes an elegant challenge from the game.

This is the only escape the room game I have done without a walkthrough.

I got stuck on the clock puzzle but I didn't realise that

The coffee machine tells you how to place the card thing, I only completed it because I tried every possible combination haha
