A lot of fun, like the whole submachine series.
*Sigh* Though I thought the ending left much to be desired. I was expecting something more exciting than what I got.
Don't want to ruin it, but... Seemed like an anti-climax after all the mystery and suspense the game had been drenching me in by the bucketload.

Reply

So, this is the end? I mean, I guess it answers questions, but it's been a while since the first game onwards so I don't really remember the questions I have (in fact, the ending almost raised more).

Someone who may have played the other games more recently, does the ending in fact explain everything so well?

okay
so how does one figure out the codes to go from room to room without using the walkthrough. is it just random guess and check?

i cant fill up the beaker.. i have valve in the pipe and the beaker on the ground

i don't know, this game has a quality to it that the others didn't which makes me think it's the last. which makes me very sad. going through to the lucky room was pretty cool and rather touching.

FANTASTIC!!! I can not wait for your next game (machine or otherwise). I have played all of the machine games recently and was absolutely enthralled them. Keep up the great work. (On a side note, my wife is jealous of the machine).

UGH....I don't want to start over because of this one stupid bug! Now, I feel better. Anyway, when i got down to the ship, everything was fine until something is not right so I looked up the hint. It says to use knife on wire and go up the ladder. I followed and nothing happens. Am I missing something?

By the way, submachine is the best puzzle i have ever came across!

In the Laboratory, next to the Portal Machine, if you click on the bars to the right, you will see a door off in the distance.
What is the purpose of this?

@ Anonymous w/ turbine:

try hitting it a few more times

@Todd:

Click on the Notes on the right. The first thing in there should be "coordinates of known...". It is listed as the second item, the "ancient section".

to get the coordinates, go to the computer and click the green button till he gives you coords. go to notes then click #1.

Pretty much finished everything, got the 21 secrets, placed the arm on the statue, but now I can't get the scepter! In the walkthrough it said to place water on that huge glowing ball... but I have no idea where to get water? The bathroom in the laboratory has running water, but I don't have a way to place a beaker or anything under there....What do I do?

take the test tube you used for the acid and get water the same way you filled up the pitcher

Amazing. It ties all the previous submachines together, however, it does not conclude. I'd love to see if the lab actually works with the submachines etc. (Please make a submachine five *winkwink*). I'd also really like to see human contact with characters such as Liz and

sunshine_bunnygirl_17. Is there really another non-lab person in the submachine? And why does mur say "to those who follow me, I'm sorry?"

what is with the # 32 its in all (but 3&1) games.

Here's how to get the turbine:

You get water by using the test tube that you left be the burner. Then you justuse it like you used the beaker. You open thepipe (the one with the turbine) by hitting it 4 times. But first you must go to the second 'Red room' ( 551). Then go to the left and press the button you see dangling from the ceiling. This stops the water flow as well as the turbine's spinning. Now you can open the pipe and get the turbine.

Reply

Hey agian! I don't know about you all but I've been hunting EVERYWHERE for a site that tells you where the secrets are w/o all the other junk. I couldn't find it so I thought I'd just do the bet I could on my own.

- At the lab in the attic by the chimney there is a chair. It is on the cushion.
- Go down a floor from the attic. It is in the bottom right corner.
-Go down another floor and go left. You will see a green computer. Look just to the left of the trash can.
- Go down 2 more floors. It is under the fallen chair.
- Go into the bathroom (far left of the same floor) It is just left of the pipes to the left.
In the 'Ancient Section' ( 104)
- Go all the way down until you see a dog statue. The secret is it's eye.
- Go up on the wooden ladder. You will see a stone horse. Under it is a fragile-looking square of stone. Break it with you hammer and the secret is inside
- To the left of the switch-panel area (you will see the + panel) there is a pile of rocks. It is hidden in the rocks.
At the 'Looping Traps' (690)
- Directly below the chamber you start in ( you must reach it by going over down and over again.) It is on the floor, right next to the right door-post.
At the 'Basement Section' (529)
- Go to the far left of the staring room. It is in the outlet (right below the plug for the coil-charger).
- In the laser room ( bottom center) it is hidden just between the right wire and the laser machine.
In the 'Lighthouse Digouts' (462)
- Go right. You will see a pipe. It is just a little to the right of it on the ground.
- If you have raised all of the cubes ( done by ringing the bells) a panel will be open. It is just inside

Sorry for taking up so much time and space/ also not finishing. If you want me to continue Let me know but now I've got to be somewhere. ( im' already ;ate!@)
