Several Journeys of Reemus Chapter 4:
Beastly Blackhole of Bureaucracy
Walkthrough and Tips Guide

INTRODUCTION

  1. Reemus has a grand quest to get through. Unfortunately it seems that Bureacracy will be a tougher beast than any other he's faced. He'll need three heroic references, a danger sample from a quest, and successfully submit it "on-line".

  2. Click the hero-postings builletin board, and select a task to take on. The game is divided into a series of self-contained quests.

NEED HELP WITH HORNETS

  1. Your first clue is in the form of a rebus. "FOUR+S O+PEN 1ST ROUND HOE+L IN THREE-H TRUNK". In other words "Force open the first round hole in the tree trunk."

  2. Click the hose to pick it up.

  3. Go to the right by clicking the arrow. Pick up the tree bark shield that's lying on the ground.

  4. Go to the left by clicking the arrow. Click the shield in your inventory to equip it. Click the fire thistle that's sticking out of the fence. This will cause the hornet to lodge his stinger in your shield.

  5. Click the stinger and the fire thistle to pick them up.

  6. Go to the right. Click the stinger in your inventory, then the larger round hole in the middle of the tree trunk. You'll get a slingshot and another coded message.

  7. SCARF F=E BOWL-B OFF PIE+N. Or, in other words, "Scare owl off pine."

  8. Go to the right by clicking the arrow, then to the right again. Click a rock on the ground to pick it up.

  9. Click the slingshot in your inventory, then click the owl to fire a rock at him. That'll scare him off!

  10. Go to the left. Click the hose in your inventory, then click the pool of water nearest to the top of the screen.

  11. Go to the right. Click the hose to fill the hornet's nest with water. Click the fire thistle in your inventory, then the hole in the tree trunk to do a little bug exterminating! Good job! One reference down!

TONIC SALESMAN SEEKING ASSISTANCE

  1. The tonic salesman needs help getting rid of the lice that inhabits the stall next to him. Completing this task will require the mixing of quite a few potions. Click on the tonics to bring up the mixing screen.

  2. Making a tonic involves clicking a "passive potion" then an "activation agent". There are three of each kind, labeled by an initial that suggests their effects. H = Hair, P = Plant, S = Shirt, R = Removal, G = Growth, and C = Cleaner.

  3. First we need to make that vegetable salesman take off his filthy coat. Mix P and G for a Plant Growth formula. Click the labeled vial, then click the tomato plant.

  4. Now let's worry about the filthy shirt. Mix S and R for a Shirt Removal formula. Click the labeled vial, then click the vegetable salesman's shirt.

  5. It'll be hard to kill those lice if they're hiding in chest hair. Mix H and R for a Hair Removal formula. Click the labeled vial, then click the vegetable salesman's chest pelt.

  6. Let's get those lice somewhere where we can deal with them. Mix H and G to make a Hair Growth formula. Click the labeled vial, then click the vegetable salesman's head.

  7. Go to the potion making screen and click the head-lice removal potion. Click the vegetable salesman's afro. Ding, dong the lice are dead!

  8. Okay, let's make Veggie Guy a little more presentable. Mix S and C for a Shirt Growth formula. Click the labeled vial, then click the Vegetable salesman's chest.

  9. That afro is a little distracting. Go to the potion screen. Click the Hair Removal potion, then click the vegetable salesman's afro. Quest complete!

SEEKING HERO TO HELP W/GOLIATH BEETLE PROBLEM

  1. That's one large beetle! Click the piece of wood on the ground to pick it up.

  2. Click the Goliath Beetle. Reemus will try a little verbal intimidation. While it won't work, it will jar loose a board. Click the beetle again to make the board fall off completely.

  3. Click the stick in your inventory, then click the orange firebug on the left of the screen. Once you have the torch, click the orange Beetle Bombs right below the Goliath's head.

  4. Click the Pill Bug to pick it up. Click the Pill Bug in your Inventory, then click Goliath for insect negotiation. Now the Pill Bug has become a Protected Bug.

  5. Click the stick in your inventory, then click the small rock at the bottom middle of the screen. Then click the bigger rock just to its right to push it into the river.

  6. Click the board to prop it up against the rock. You have a pretty good catapult now, but you'll need some momentum to set it off.

  7. Click the Protected Bug in your inventory. Click the top of the waterfall to send him hurtling into the lever. One more click of the Goliath, and it's Bye Bye Beetle! That's all quest three references!

DANGER ALERT AT THE BEACH

  1. A Death Slug would be a perfect danger sample, and this is the perfect place to get one. Click the seaweed in the water to pick it up.

  2. Go to the right by clicking the arrow. Go up by clicking the arrow. Click the sheep to free it from the chain.

  3. Go back by clicking the left arrow, then click it again to go to the beach. Click the seaweed in your inventory, then click the bent tree to make a trap. Click the bent tree so Reemus will lie in wait.

  4. Go to the right by clicking the arrow, then go up. On the right side of the tree, there's a pod stuck in a sap hole. It blends in pretty well, but if you click it, you'll get some metal-attracting sap on your hands.

  5. Go back by clicking the left arrow. Click the key. The sap will attract it to your hand!

  6. Go left by clicking the arrow. Click the metal key in your inventory, then the lock on the treasure chest. You'll get the shepherd's pie.

  7. Go up by clicking the arrow. Click the shepherd's pie in your inventory, then click the shepherd. Now that he's asleep, click the crook to swipe it.

  8. Go back by clicking the arrow, then to the right, then up to the sheep. Click the crook, and the sheep will start to follow you.

  9. Go back down the mountain, then back to the beach. Click the metal ring embedded in the sand to insert the crook.

  10. Go to the right by clicking the arrow. Click the death slug. Now you've got your proof of danger!

GETTING ON-LINE PART 1 - ACROBATTY

  1. Now that you're back at the castle, go to On-Line Submission area by clicking the right arrow. Huh. That's a lot of submissions clogging up the line-width.

  2. Click the arrow to return to the department. Click the Hero Postings Bulletin Board and select the Acrobat Lessons posting.

  3. The lessons are cancelled? Let's see what we can do about that. The clown will tell you there will be no lessons as long as Acrobat Klaus is still held hostage by the Potatomen. Click the chalk by the Circus Sign to pick it up.

  4. Go to the right by clicking the arrow. Click to talk to that entirely unsuspicious "talent scout". Looks like we'll need some clown make-up if we hope to rescue Klaus.

  5. Click the red fruit on the hanging branch for a clown nose for Liam. Click the brown berry to pick it up for later.

  6. Go to the left by clicking the arrow. Click the chalk in your inventory on the sign. While the clown is distracted, click his "Tickle Trunk" to loot some hair gel.

  7. Go to the right by clicking the arrow, then to the right again. Click the long red fruit hanging from the tree to pick it up. Click the long fruit in your inventory, then click the green sucker plant.

  8. Click the Brown Berry in your inventory, then click the red goo to dye it for Reemus's red nose.

  9. Click the chalk in your inventory, then feed it to the green sucker plant. Now you've got white-face!

  10. Click the tree to pick up another long red fruit. Go to the left by clicking the arrow, then to the left again. Click the fruit in your inventory, then click the clown's drink to spike it.

  11. Go to the right by clicking the arrow. Click the Alcoholic Fruit in your inventory, then click the Balding Eagle. Now Liam has a wig!

  12. Click the tree trunk at the bottom left. A fly will buzz out to be eaten by the shocker plant. When the shocker plant is open, click it to give Reemus and Liam a shock crazy hair!

  13. Go to the left by clicking the arrow. Talk to the Talent Scout. Almost there!

GETTING ONLINE PART 2 - UNDERGROUND IDOL

  1. That's some set-up those Potatomen have. Let's see if we can get Klaus out of here. Click the potato sack and let it drop. Click the hanger to pick it up.

  2. Alright, this puzzle can be a toughie. You'll only be able to escape if the potatomen are asleep, and they'll only sleep if the minstrel is constantly playing.

  3. You can mess with the remote control charges by using the hanger, but the antennas need to be placed correctly. Start by clicking the hanger in your inventory, then place it on the center TV.

  4. Position the antennae so that the one on the left TV is pointing to the right. Position the one on the right TV so that it's facing to the left. They anntenae and hanger should be in the shape of an "M". Now that the Potatomen are asleep, you can make a run for it.

  5. Once you're back at the castle, click the arrow to go to the On-Line Submissions Screen. Click the sign and submit. Hmm... looks like we'll need to delay the invasion so the bureaucracy can work.

INVASION DELAY-SION

  1. There are several ways to delay the invasion. To prepare for all three, You'll have to return to previous quest locales using the Map screen.

  2. Return to the potion salesman. Click and pick up the Hair Growth and Plant Growth Formulae.

  3. Go back to the hornet's lair. Another Coded message! "DIG MOOSE M=L ROCKET-ET ONE-E SM+BALL-B EYELAND", or, in other words "Dig Loose Rock On Small Island." Click the shovel to pick it up.

  4. Go to the right by clicking the arrow. Then go to the right again. Click the shovel, then click the loose rock on the small island. Now you have a stash of stingers!

  5. Go to the Goliath Beetle. Talk to him by clicking him. He'll now be waiting by the cliffs.

  6. Use the Map to Return to the Cliffs. Okay! Now time to decide what ending you want!

ENDINGS

  • FOR MIGHT AND MAGIC ENDING: Click the Hair Growth formula in your inventory, then click Goliath. Click Goliath again to have him attack the boat!

In a funny coincidence, I discovered this game series just yesterday and quickly fell in love with it.

Time to see just how well I can do before having to resort to the walkthrough!

I really like the music in the Reemus series. I've noticed they reuse quite a few music tracks (not that I'm complaining; if it ain't broke...). For example, this game's final puzzle sequence has one of my personal favorite tracks; it also played during the finale of the prologue, and during one of the scenes on the "aggressive" route in Chapter 3.

I wonder if they've got an album on iTunes.

There'd better be one more game so we can actually see Reemus and Liam defeat the invasion.
