Found the last photo:

it's in Episode 4, just after you get bombed in, the first or second screen, you are looking into a tunnel (before the mummified monkeys). Before clicking the bottom right, find the photo, on the tunnel floor, just above the caption.

Finding the photos

unlocks the Desktop Download in the Specials. It's nothing too exciting.

Good game. Thanks Jay.

I agree that the ending is disappointing. They could have made Hafiz more interesting, less a cliche of an all-seeing magician. Why let Elizabeth die, then? That made no sense.

Still, a very very good game.


Please help with the telescope.


the code for the safe is



woow this game is very cool , i've never played a game so cool!


ummmm i used all your hints but i only got 86%. Does anyone know where the sixth bit of the picture is?
Thanks a bunch!!!!


This sucks! I cant figure out what I'm missing. Karmen you said you got 100%. I'm prety darn sure I got all the pictures, I got all the Aten signs I finished the game and it says I only have 87%! What did I do wrong?


hello I'm new and when i click on the telescope it goes into the room and then i cant do anything else could someone please help me


hello im new and when i click on the telescope it goes into the room and then i cant do anything else could someone please help me


So, I have finally found all six photograph pieces, all four Aten symbols, 100% knowledge, and scored 100% on three of four games. However, I cannot seem to get 100% on the chase game. This may be because

I already found and picked up the photograph from the chase game, and now I can no longer find the photograph in that game. Does it disappear once you have found it?

I currently have a time of 20 seconds and a score of 70% for the chase game. Is the reason above going to prevent me from getting 100% in this game?

Ok since I didn't see anyone post a pic for the stars, heres one.

Isn't is similar to the map of the sites, and the circle is the circle on the constalation map. screenshot

Stumped in Sakkara June 26, 2007 8:56 PM

Carolynn June 28, 2007 4:16 AM

ipawnyou July 2, 2007 6:36 PM

what is the code for the safe!!


For those of you who are having trouble getting Charles out of the Underworld: here's the tiles. "X" is a tile you don't use. Here you go;

X 6 2
X 5 X
X 4 3


for the cups in the antique shop:

i got middle, left right, left

I dont know if it's the same for everybody though

Wayne'sWorld July 21, 2007 2:20 PM

Gave up on the safe code; used a spoiler. What I want to know is: how did you come up with the right numbers for the combination??

katinka July 30, 2007 7:08 PM

@Wayne's World:
I got the numbers from the telegraph.
There it says:

Too (=2) hot. [...] One (=1) hopes for (=4) a storm to (=2) hide us.

But it took me quite a while and many, many tries, before I realized it. ;-)

Nice game.


I just started playing the game and I'm stuck where Charles gets beaten up and taken to the Underworld. What do I do now?

There's this puzzle and I can't seem to figure it out without dying.

Someone help me, please.

Wayne'sWorld August 16, 2007 5:39 PM

To: angela....Click on any tile.(I started with tile #1 and worked my way up to #12.) When you get the first one right, the statue on the right will spin around and change heads. Write the # of the tile down. Now, go to any other tile (Start with #1 again.)and click on it. Eventually, you'll have a pattern of tiles (six in all) that when clicked in order, will save your life.It took me awhile, and I died 17 million times....but it was interesting figuring it out. If you COMPLETELY give up though, here's the tile #'s in order....



So ... I think it got taken offline while I was playing. I was just about to go to Chapter 3, when it refused to load. Coming back here, I can't get the links to work anymore, and the BBC page says things have recently been moved around.

Does anyone know where else it might be found?


Really good game!!!!!!!!!!!


i tried the code for the safe many times and i still can't get it! why?


Death in sakkara is really good but I can't find out what the code is in the safe.


Hello, People! I've completed the game....whatever may others think, the game's graphic is wonderfull; i'm so into Egypt and whoever liked this game will definetely like PHARAOH(strategy). As for the conclusion of the game....YOU should keep on eye on the statue of Khaemwese at the British Museum and on Elisabeth's photo- RING A BELL?!
Kisses from Romania


The code to the safe is 2142. You have to click the numbers 2 1 4 2 and then it will say click, and then you click whats inside of the safe, then look in your journal, then close the journal, and click explore outside, then you get something stolen from you and you have to chase the theif. I cant figure out how to get the puzzle part. It is after you get out of teh cafe with a lighter. Can anyone tell me how I complete the puzzle?

Anonymous ( need help! ) January 9, 2008 8:24 AM

I N E E D H E L P ! ! !

I only know :

Code for the safe is 2142

You need to look at the telescope to find the stars... it looks like a pot really.

For the cups... it is left then ... I forgot, I think the last is the middle one.

When you chase the thief, they sometimes walk in circles... you can try out a short cut and you'll get him.

You can find some things that would be useful (when you do the cup bit) it in the abandoned work site.

In the tunnel, you just keep on going down until you see something shine (it's the oil) then go right and you'll see a body then....I am not sure

The naming the gods bit. First the top right corner, then the second one from the bottom (very right side), then the bottom right corner, then next to it, then count 2 blocks, then above it.

W H A T I N E E D F O R H E L P :

The tunnel bit : how do you get out of the tunnel? I never get out! Please help me!


I am stuck Elizabeth's room. Yesterday I went all the way to being in the tomb, but my work was not saved. Now when I try to replay with a new ID I open the safe but instead going outside the screen becomes blank. I have found all the clues and read them. Why can't I go further?


If it wont load next episode sign up again with new e-mail, and play whole game again............Elizabeth was born again khamwese........he throw figure with execration text on it in river, and becouse of it the boat sinks as you can read in newspaper........
Among the most sinister objects from the ancient world are the figurines in human shape which were used to cast spells on the persons they depicted........

Bartimaeus February 5, 2008 3:38 AM

Here's what happened in the end, for all those of you who were unsure exactly what was going on:

Khamwese was somewhere near the tomb that Charles found. Maybe. One thing is for certain: Khamwese did actually master the spell for eternal life. However, it wasn't a spell of eternal life, but one of eternal rebirth. Khamwese was reborn, and reborn, and reborn again and again-- his most recent reincarnation being that of Elizabeth. Whether the mummy in the hidden tomb was missing because the spell had used it as fuel (to rebirth Khamwese) is unknown.
The statue may or may not have had a curse on it; that is unknown. However, the fact that bad things kept befalling Charles when he had it, combined with the fact that Baldwin's boat sunk once Charles threw the statue into the water, is rather suggestive-- that said, I'll leave it to you to decide.

A marvelous game, as are most all BBC productions. Now, why not try CDX?

Can somebody please help me? I'm stuck on Chapter 4, the way to get out? I'm confused.

Count Dracula August 9, 2008 10:48 AM

Safe combination is so simple too = 2, one = 1, for = 4, to = 2 and voila 2142 is the combo.


how do you chase the theif

Rachel Kinnear August 25, 2008 12:25 PM

I had a while of frustration too with the safe part of this game. Basically the clue is in the telegram and you have to look for numbers in the main body of the text (the To Mortimer Armstrong bit doesn't count). Too for one to is the order you find them in and put them in in that order.

As for the telescope, you should have a map telling you all about the Plough. It's the Plough you need to find and trace in the sky (there's a blue map of all the sky on the window in the roon to help you locate it. I found the bit that looks like bull's horns and traced it down from there. You only need the Plough. Be quick and when you have finished, click again on the last star. You can move on!

Anonymous October 8, 2008 9:55 PM

I have been entering the right code all the time (too one for to) but the safe still won't open! please help me out, Jay :(


It shouldn't have taken so many spoilers to get the code, but I would never have gotten it. Thanks for all the help. Great site.


the combo is 2142


I've got the combination 2142.


well since ive tried everything i finally got it. think to=2 too=2 one=1 FOR!=4 get it aint in that order but there are your numbers wish you luck ;)

the freestyler December 7, 2008 3:15 PM

much activity, many digs, (too) hot. our man is very close, but trail exposed. (one) hopes (for) a storm (to) hide us. keep safe, yours elizibeth

words in brackets are clues and sound like number note: one word sounding like a number is missed out because you don't need it


1= one
2= to,too
3= free
4= for
5= no word for 5
6= no word for 6
7= no word for 7
8= ate
9= no word for 9
0= no word for 0

oh and while im on it thanks jay that spoiler really helped


I'm new at this game and i'm stuck at the cups part please help me :(



Would a kind soul please post a new picture of the telescope star solution? Samamatha did once, but that link no longer works.

Also, for catching the thief in the maze, follow the footprints if he runs offscreen and you can no longer see him.

Eventually he starts running around the same building in circles, and you can run straight at him instead of running behind him.

This is the only game I'd play again, just to find the knowledge points etc. Thanks Jay! Great site!


Alxandra, just keep trying, it seems to change every time. In my game, I guessed the first two cups correctly, but the shopkeeper still kept taking the idols. It only seemed to matter that I got the very last one correct, the one where the map was being bargained.


im stuck at the part where i have
to slide the peices on the wall in
the tomb.rite after i get out of the
tunnel! anyone know what picture
im suppose to make?
help plz!

Anonymous March 9, 2010 6:18 AM

hello everyone,
i've played throug episode one with a final score of 30%. but i don't seem to be able to start episode 2. can anyone held me. i really lovbe this game and i would love to play more.


I am also stuck at the end of level one and can not go any further. If anyone knows what I need to do to finish I would appreciate it cause I love the game!


Is there a second picture on the first level, if so where do I find it. I found the one on the souq game.


Helloooo is anyone out there? I have not received a comment back as to why I can't get passed level one even thought it looks complete at 30%. Can anyone help me pls :(


Hi Jenn,

Although I can't say for certain, I do know that the BBC often takes down their games after a period of time. So, if you can't access chapter 2, I would write to the BBC to see what's up with it. Most likely they have moved or removed some of the files and the game doesn't now work as it used to.


Hi Jenn,

There is another photograph to pick in the first level.

As for its location...

when you arrive in front of the hotel at the feet of the tourists on the right there is a small patchy thing. That's it !

Hope this helps :)


It says it can't connect to the server at the beginning so it can't give me a code so it can't save.


For those of you who still can't figure out the safe code despite the other hints, here it is.


Anonymous April 13, 2010 5:23 PM

hi. I'm stuck with the stars thing. need help!! =((


Jay-- you said if we were having problems contact the BBC, but I can't find any way to contact them! I keep getting redirected to some FAQ about contacting them, but I can't seem to find an email anywhere? Any hints?


I have just posted a complaint to the BBC regarding this problem (no access to part 2). I'll tell you more if I get an appropriate answer.
Perhaps other players could do the same so we are a lot and get their attention ?

Hurray !

I have just found the solution to go on playing (part 2 and so on)
Here is the address:
