If you have a quick squizz through the walkthrough near the top of this page, you will find that you need to

blink three times first as per the instructions on the notepad.


Oh! Thank you guys, I didn't realize that I had colorblindness on!! Well I had it on purposely because I wanted to know what it was like, then I never guessed that I wouldn't be able to see colors, just black and white on the alarm! duh! Love ya site!!! Keep it up


how do you get past the black puzzle??


Which bit is the black puzzle?
Does the walkthrough near the top of this page help at all?


yo peeps awsome game :D For all those struggling with first phone note pad

Scribble bellow the ripped part and a lot.


This may sound like a stupid question, but after discarding the first tape and looking on this page for answers, I am unsure as to where there is a coffee table?


After you discard the tape another door will open. Go through it and you will get to the coffee table.


Really good, better than the first (and harder) i hope he makes a 3rd one

What the heck? April 11, 2007 5:52 PM

Right.. On the second tape, I've been trying to cross the black abyss-type area for a while, but I just.. Can't. It gets stuck near the end and there don't seem to be any side paths or anything of the sort.. Help?


What the heck?

Go back to the beginning of the walkway. Step off it to the left and a platform will appear to the right (it might take some to-ing and fro-ing though).

Gabriella April 12, 2007 1:44 PM

Excuse me please can someone help me.

I'm in the second gateway and i've collected the video and everything I just can't get back past the red bridge. Is there any real sequence to conquer this beast? I feel really silly because it's simple. :(.

Help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.



2 forward, 1 back, 3f, 1b, 3f, 1b, 2f.

What were the numbers on the first pyramids in the painting?


You could either backtrack to the room with the painting, or, check out the walkthrough near the top of this page :o)

sargent222 April 14, 2007 9:24 PM

i dont get it what do i do after a make the prism?
don't say the combinations though

sargent222 April 14, 2007 9:31 PM

i need help! how come when i see the prism, i see it in greyscale?



It sounds like you've inadvertently managed to turn on the Color Aid. If you don't need it, press the little "G" in the top right corner, press Options and turn it off there.

What'shisname April 15, 2007 4:34 PM

Pretty good, I was stuck on the phones though d:

joey4756 April 16, 2007 1:56 PM

You're supposed to read the other comments here first before posting a question, since your question has been asked and answered no less than 50 times already. :p


whats the number on the first phone???

Ana Laura April 17, 2007 4:58 PM

omg!! I'm on a room with a phone and a through glass, and Laura IS CALLING ME! All the time! I don't know what to do! Please help!


Refer to jay's comment just above yours ;o)


Nicely made game, it was fairly easy but the graphics/sound and mood more than compensated for this. Roll on Gateway III.

Anonymous April 18, 2007 2:15 PM

I have tried to do the red bridge bit but i cant get through HELP!!!

Anonymous April 18, 2007 2:33 PM

with the blinking you simply blink the lamp three times


this game was fun but challenging with this website it made the end easier


This game is awesome...

.At first I thought that the girl Laura was evil. She isn't.


how do i get out of the kitchen



As it says in the walkthrough above, hide behind the fridge door.

velocity April 19, 2007 8:34 PM

keep scribbling on the paper next to the phone..a phone number will appear on it (that means when you scribbled all the paper with grey color, a white phone number will appear behind)


how do i save my game?

  • The robot stands up. Follow her and… the game is over!


This is a pretty fun game... kind of easy though, don't you think? I got up to the final part where you have to put the tapes in chronological order and I just looked at the walkthrough because I didn't want to waste all that time sorting the videos out..

Jack 54321 April 21, 2007 11:19 PM

I called the number(on the first phone) but the door wont open please answer this ? a.s.a.p.

Jack 54321 April 21, 2007 11:36 PM

Im in the 3rd room i called the number now what do i do?



Jack 54321
What you do is

read the walkthrough near the top of this page :o)


if you want any more games like this, i recommend the crimson room, viridian room, blue chamber and white chamber, all by Toshimitsu Takagi


I just wanted to say thank you for all the help, and that this was a great game...


that was easy

Anonymous April 25, 2007 1:08 PM

i need help!! i cant get passed the red brige thing after i get the second vidio!! i tryed the other code thing to get across is the first time backwords but its not working!!

jesusfreak April 25, 2007 7:08 PM

i cant get across the bridge with the red tiles the second time!! this part of the walkthrough isnt working!! how do i do it!!


Could someone explain where the numbers in the torture scene come from? What's the logic?


Elai - the numbers represent the SUM (result) of two numbers that you must choose. You are free to choose any two numbers, provided they add up to one of those 3 SUMS. (Although the student may not get it right on the first try, he will eventually get it right.)


i have gotten to the phone and i have scribbled on the note pad and got the number and i have dialed it but the door still wont open..what do i do now



The walkthrough near the top of this page should help :o)


ok im in the kitchen..got the tape..eyes are looking at me..now what?


this was the best game in the world i had a great time playong it and for a hint always save up to a piont u thought was hard to get 2 !!!! <33333



As per Jay's previous post, this question has been asked and answered dozens of times. There are 7 pages of comments and a complete walkthrough that you can refer to :o)

Anonymous April 29, 2007 1:54 AM

What happens if you "Blink 3 times" I'm at that spot but I'm afraid a scary thing is going to happen but I can't stop playing!


This is much better than the first one!!


i'm think i'm near the end, the where you 'blink' the light to the orange-coloured person who afterwards phones you. you can watch her with the telescope. all i need to know is; how do you find the necessary number? there's three lines with 4 sets of 2 dots in total on a note pad next to the phone, but i can't make sense of the clue. any help, anyone?

Patrik May 3, 2007 5:00 AM

Awesome game, great work! =)

It like Silent Hill meets Crash and goes robot...
You should get a contract with some company for the next Gateway. If there'll be one.

Andrew May 5, 2007 8:56 AM

how do you get the telephone number?

***N.J. E$HA*** May 6, 2007 2:51 PM

I didn't know there was a sequel to Gateway already!

anonymous May 6, 2007 8:03 PM

I loved this game. This is the best flash game I have ever played. The story is pheonominal and even though I had to cheat to find out how to

second phone puzzle

I only cheated because I HAD to know how it ended! If i ever make a flash game I would only hope to make it as good as this game.

***N.J. E$HA*** May 7, 2007 10:55 PM

The phone part really is complicated because I was working on something for a second then number went away and the lamp got stuck and it wont flicker anymore so I have to start all over!

***N.J. E$HA*** May 7, 2007 11:13 PM

Oh my god my brain hurts!!!!!! I put in the number for the part where you blink three times but then the door still didn't open. The phone kept saying "You just got disconnected".

***N.J. E$HA*** May 7, 2007 11:29 PM

I can't beleive this how do you force the student to type the number 163?

***N.J. E$HA*** May 7, 2007 11:46 PM

Such a sad ending (tears)... They better have another one!!!!!


simply love this game!
thanks for the help =)

Will there be a Gateway 3?

Anonymous May 15, 2007 3:31 AM

i really liked it! very much!!

I have one tip for you because I can't quite remember the whole thing:

To get the phone number, pick up the pencil, and start scribbling all over the notepad! Fun, and for good use! :)

Anonymous May 22, 2007 6:36 PM

hey people it was kinda creepy but the part where the eye i was like is he gonna kill me and i just press the frigde and hide and when it was gone i finish the game the creepy part was when i shine the mirror and blind my own eye


to get the phone number u just have to scribbling but i use the pen instead

Anonymous May 22, 2007 9:07 PM

laura is the orange robot i think but at the last part you just use the tv plug and plug her up and she will be back and you follow her and your done with the game

Scribbler advisor May 23, 2007 7:00 PM

if people are having trouble just keep scribbing it until it comes out and you have to open the lamp 3 times

kitchen helper May 23, 2007 7:08 PM

dude kallie i can help you
you just stand directly on the light and then the mirror will shine that's all
and when the eye appeared near that 1st portal door just press the mirror and then press the eye and you shine it then watch the tape where you got in the bathroom

the kitchen part is easy just grab the tape fast and hide behind the fridge and wait until it goes out and then you go out and watch the tape and transfer the #4 and 5 but you need to press it twice because if you press once then it will transfer #4 only

thegriffin88 May 24, 2007 1:47 PM

Very intriguing and fun to play. Rather like a lifetime movie.


to make a prism just stand under the lightbulb and press the mirror then press the water it will make colors

NoStickyTape May 26, 2007 7:45 AM

whew..it's still kinda of mental to play this game...scary


Where is the phone ?!?! I am through where you find the newspaper and lighter, but what should i do after that? Please help!!

help man May 31, 2007 4:39 PM

this is stupid cos i feel as of everybody knows how to do this except me but when you have to punish the student and it say put in ??+??= whatever, what is the ?? is it any number or is there a button to make a question mark? PLEEEZE HELP

martin bigbum June 3, 2007 12:44 PM

in the first bit,how do you get through the door with the eye above it?


i got though the cellphone and it says blink 3 times. I mean it's confusing. show me please.

Danielle June 5, 2007 8:23 AM

It was quite a good game, quick and to be honest i didn't find it that easy especially when trying

to write the number of the tapes in the right order at the end into the robot i just couldn't remember but i still enjoyed it you should produce another game similar to this one.



TOUCHING :D But scary. Those two big eyeballs starin' back at ya from the window. Right, that totally freaked me out and caused me to open up the entire walkthrough. Argh. The mother in the story is freaky...

For anyone who might not understand the part about forming the sums

24 79 163, (I got stuck there myself), it means you form sums like 12+12=24. When all three sums are formed correctly by the robot, the 3 light bulbs on the mathmachine will light up and the door will open. (:


a game that is both emotion and wongderful.thank you!


How do i see the first video?


i completed the game without the walkthorugh and with the walkthrough

batznuli June 14, 2007 7:56 PM

Hi All
