22 not 21 but 22 July 27, 2007 5:30 PM

WOOHOO!!! beat with 22/21 secrets!! 22! here's how:

when you get to the ending room, go right. secret(21) is in the bottom right corner of the room. enter 728 into the portal. press the grey button to teleport to the Lucky Room. secret(22) is in the top left corner of the room. go right, and put all 22/21 secrets into the machine. if you put less then 22 secrets into the machine, the metal bars won't go up. go to the right if they DO lift up.there are 4 rooms.each one has a camera in it. if you look through any one of these cameras, there will be a secret extra.when you want to leave the Lucky Room, go all the way to the left (you should be at the portal). enter 596 into the portal and press the grey button. you will be back in the ending room.go left twice.click the lever. you will be back at the main menu. YOU WIN!!!!!!!! =D

if i messed up something on that spoiler, sorry, and please tell me on a comment. =) also, i would like it if someone left a nice comment. =)

Where do I find the coil you need at the basement?

Reply

Lizzy:
You find the coil in the ancient section above the portal.To get the brick ladder, you need to make the button appear at the room with the dog statue(all the way at the bottom).To do that,you must find the A,B,C and D tiles and place them in the slot.

I loved this game. This one was truly a challenge. I needed walk throughs more than I'd like to admit. Usually, I only get stuck once but this time I was stuck practically THE ENTIRE GAME.

Keep up the good work!

How are these games created? What softwares and programming languages? I'd love to try to create my own simple point and click games.

well,i finished it, found all the secrets and it's worth the searching, you need a charged coil for on of the secrets, all i say. I'm glad i found them all, there's some really interesting info

woow! woooow!! WOOOOOW!!!
I just finished Submachine 4. Woooow! I played them all, I was a little angry that the 3 was made that way, but after I finished it, I realized that I like it very much!
Perhaps some of you are not as delighted as I am, but let me explain: my first escape game was The Bar (2-3 months ago), I got hooked immediately. These games are awesome!
And thanks to all brave and smart people for posting comments! I would never get through the last Submachine without them.
Byeeee

I simply love the submachine series (probably all the people who have commented here like it too), but this one was a surprise. When I got through the first location (the lab), I thought: "Wow! Now that was easy!". Twenty minutes of point-and-clicking later, I realized how complex the game was. Congratulations, Skutnik!

on the top room you'll see a tile with a string. Cut the string with ur knife and voila... heres the missing tile

I got all the secrets without help, but I wasn't so lucky on the main game.

I didn't know I could put the beaker on the grate, or that you could cut the wires behind the panel on the first floor of the ship (I didn't even know they were wires, I just thought they were lines on the wall.) I also didn't realize the shapes on the wall were coordinates. I couldn't figure out you had to put the water on the glowing lump, either. Other than that, I found everything myself. Woo-hoo!

Reply

Wow! Just finished it. That was a totally excellent game and very well made ... perhaps the best browser-based P and C adventure I've seen. This was the first of the Submachine series I've played though. Can't wait to check out the others now.

I really love this game but for some reason I'm having trouble placing the orb on the pillar in section 529? Where exactly is is supposed to be placed? I've tried all around the room.

About the 3 shapes in the tomb trap

Like hint fairy said : "Think about corners"

It means -
Circle - Has no sides , so its '0'
Square - Has 4 Sides , so its '4'
Triangle - Has 3 Sides , so its '3'
Put them together and it means - 043

Try not to read the spoiler , unless your desperate and REALLY don't know the code..

The "make your own note" function, and the note from sunshine_bunnygirl7, made me spend half an hour trying to figure out how to leave my own note for others to find, before I realized that wasn't possible. I felt kind of silly. ^_^;

In case anyone wants to read it, here's the in-character note I'd have left:

That day so long ago began like any other day. When I got up that morning, I never dreamed that by the next day I'd find myself crossing dimensions searching for the trail left by an enigmatic psychic.
That day, I stumbled into what I later learned was called a Submachine, and found a diary written by someone called Murtaugh. A man who described a way of moving between worlds, across dimensions. I was just another person then, one who didn't believe in such nonsense. How naïve of me.
I don't know how much time has passed since then. Time and space seem to flow differently inside the Submachine net. But all I know is that after all my travels, I have finally reached location 0,0,0. I know that the answers I've been searching are here, I can feel it. I'm not surprised to find the lab protected by security measures, but after all I've gotten past to get this far, I will not let a few more tricks stop me.

Just a little in-character roleplay I dreamt up. ^_^;

pulze101,

you have to use the screwdriver on the valve on the roof, then put the valve on the other hole on that pipe. Put the beaker on the floor grate, knock off the pipe, then turn the valve.

Just started the submachine series tonight, and i finished the first 4! i need some sleep now, but i will conquer 5 tomorrow!!!

hopefully...

Mr. Green June 5, 2008 8:02 PM

In case anybody cares, there is a way to get 22 out of 21 secrets. The walkthrough at the top of this page tells you where 21 of them are. The 22nd is in

the ancient section. There should be a statue of a horse close to the portal. It's really obvious. It has some cracks in the middle so use your hammer to break it. A secret is waiting for you.

The secret count reads 22/21 if you get them all. After you turn 21 of them in, the 'secret' item disappears like normal. If you turn 21 of them in first AND THEN get the last secret, it says you have 1/0 secrets. You can turn this last secret in if you want. It will make the ding noise like normal and now you have 0/-1 secrets. This doesn't open up anything else special, as far as I know. i just like walking around with 0/-1 secrets.

Reply

but I have a question... Do you know how to open de bars (??) in the lab (001). The bars are situated at the right of the portal... If you click there, you see a door but you can't "reach­" it... It is a secret room or anyting else???

In the lab there is a computer , look at the computer and communicate with the guy using the green button (it will type out some URL i think) , the guy will be like "you're at the lab?'

Suffers from the standard problem of all point-and-click games. You can only solve puzzles ONE way. There's no chance to do creative problem-solving, as you can in the real world.

I like the note thing where you can make your own. : ) Heres one I made up, and also, sylocat, I like yours.;) Warning,mines is long.

It has been so long since I was waking up on that fateful morning. When I saw a weird looking thing, I decided to play around with it. Now I find myself in a world that contains puzzles. I wish that I left the portal alone. I don't know the coordinates back home now. I have discovered notes that talk about a man with one arm that can travel through dimensions. Long ago, I would have thought that the man was just mad.Just like what he said in that note, 'It would be like talking about the possibilty of space travling to a goldfish'. Now, I'm changed. Mur is the only person who can help me now. Hes the only hope I have now, and I know I must keep moving no matter what. These machine won't stop me!
