Mystery of Time and SpaceAnd since neither of these games are new, I'll leave you with two today in case you have seen one or the other already. The next game has been recommended so many times that I am posting a link to it without reviewing it since I still haven't played through it myself... you're on your own with this one.

Mystery of Time and Space is a point-and-click escape-the-room game that's been around a while. Created in 2001 by Jan Albartus, the author has updated the game several times since then by adding new rooms. And, so far that I have seen, each room features a fresh new soundtrack to keep you company while you solve its puzzle. So, the objective is to simply escape each of the rooms.

In case you get stuck, there is a Java chat applet built into the game window that pops up so you can chat with others who are also playing the game. So, what are you waiting for? Limber up those point-and-click fingers, you're about to embark on an epic classic.

Play Mystery of Time and Space

Note: MOTAS was mentioned again here at JIG in 2007 and given a proper review in 2008. You'll find even more information about the game on those pages.

Thanks to Capuchin, Steve, Nick, and everyone else who suggested this game.

  • I assumed I would stumble on the correct solution by random clicking, and I did...but you could sit down and work it out on paper. Note that the outermost ring rotates each time, but has 4 gaps, so you can ignore it completely and focus on lining up the inner 3 rings. Good luck!


I finished this game about a year ago, but I had to cheat. the first 10 rooms or so are quite easy, but in the end its just amazingly difficult.
there are some good help sites available for the game if you look for them. It may help you out in the last levels.

but the game itself is awesome, it is really well thought of.


I cannot play this game. I have installed the "apple quick time" pluggin, but all I get is a groovy song and a dark screen. There's, of course, the possibility the game starts like this... in this case I cannot turn on the light.

Anyway: help? :)



Wow, that was a blast. Actually some logic. Nicely done, and very long, not an inbetween tasks kind of game, beware if you try this at work. Good puzzles. Hope to see more of it....


Stefano - you need the Flash player plug-in for this game, and Java installed for accessing the chat feature. Use the "Get Flash" button in the sidebar to get it.


aw man, i've been waiting for months for the next level to come out. awesome game.


okay, i spent hours on this and i'll be honest with you, i was VERY upset with the ending.. that was absolutely brutal. the game itself was great, but it's defintely not european cause it had NO FINNISH!!!


Yes... well... im starting it now! =p

Thanks Jay, but I already had the flash player installed. For those who happen to have the same problem I did, follow these instructions



You and me both, Erwin. I had to have help with this one. There are small grey lines etched in the sides and between the tiles. Try moving the tiles to form a continuous line from right to left.

Hint: isn't this similar to what you did in the room next door?

Hmmm... these tiles are confusing... annoying... agrivating! *Blows up tiles* Ahhh... if only these games were that simple!


wow this game is crazy! i beat it though.. it was fun.. really hard.. had to ask for help.. A LOT! but other than that.. it was really cool =)


Hey, this game is good so far, you need to use the little pin from the flag to get the diskette box open. I got the tiles in the right place, adn i unlocked the door, but i cant get the stairs to go back down, or how to get through the door, help? any one?


Amanda-you need to use the chair that's to the left and click on it so it moves towards the bridge.. that should allow you to click on the bridge and it should go down.. then you're off to the next level! yay!

Capuchin March 26, 2005 9:55 AM

jellyfish April 29, 2005 3:07 AM

second red laser? you can open the base of the controller machine on that one. I know, I know, there's no rollover indicating that, but it's there. Just be careful digging around in the wiring...


I am on lv. 8 where you move the chess thing. how do you get the chess thing on it the 2nd time?


what's the code for level 11

kristen May 3, 2005 10:37 PM

pls, pls
can you help me?


how do i activate the lift?!


im stuck on the level with that red laser thing and the wood that u hav to set fire to ive got the securtiy thing working but the doors still locked! help


AH - you have to burn the wood and then go back to the fire place and place it there. then go to the panel and get a piece of tile of some sort and use the laser on it. After doing that you have to put the pieces in the correct spot to activate the secutiry doors to open.

Wow...that was hard. Really, really hard. Now I'm going to lie down in a darkened room until the urge to solve puzzles and poke lockers goes away. Or until the next level is made, whichever comes first.

you know when you first get on lvl 13 and you go into that room with the spinning square and all the colours how'd you do that because im confused!!!

rebecca May 29, 2005 10:34 AM

hmmm for the pool table, use your key on the chest in the other room. you will get a coin. OR if you've done that, get the chalk and use it on the end of the pointer thing.


for the spinny thing hint: remember the window poster on the wall.
don't click it just remember it

christine June 1, 2005 4:40 PM

this is hard. i'm in the first level and i cannot get out of the room! i've open the locker but it didnt do anything. please help me!!!

christine June 1, 2005 5:39 PM

i'm on level 8 and i'm stuck on the chess part! i dont know how to play chess and im sooooooo lost!!!! please help!


Help! How do i get out of level 13? I'm in the room with the machine with colors..and I can't figure out what to do! I can't find a bucket either for the well. HEEEEEEELPPPPP!! i'm so addicted!! NEed to complete this game so i can get on with my life


At lvl 13, where do you locate the bucket to put out the fire?


In level 13, there are hints for the color room problem on floors B and D. You can find the bucket on level C -- without needing any objects or hints from the other floors.

The first thing to do is to get the elevator working. You can activate the elevator from the scene outside the building.


im stuck at that silly chess thing... please, i know its stupid, but i used the walkthrough and it just doesnt make sense.. i cant figure it out! please help!!!


if you like this game, you wll love this mini-mystery game:


im stuck on lvl 7, cant find the red wheel


wow..lvl 13 is getting confusing..idk how to get in the door after u put out the fire. it says its locked but ive looked everywhere and i cant find a way to get in!!


Please Help
I think I'm on level 14. I passed the green wall, got through the secret passage and lasers and the door. I'm at the bit with the MS windows poster - a door to outside, and a door to a machine. There is also an elevator that I can't get into.

What do I do?


In level 12, how do I get the green wall down/gone? I've been on this for dayz.


http://finalgrunt.free.fr/MOTAS/index.html is a guide for levels 1-12. guess they don't realize 13 has come out


Did anyone ever find anything to do with the can of soda? I had a coin from playing pool and used it in the soda machine - out pop a can of soda.. WTF do I do with it?


AHHH WHAT DO YOU DOOO? i can't even get past the first level >.

chameleon June 14, 2005 1:47 PM

dude, I must be out my mind. I cant get the freekin door open on LEVEL 1! I got the poster and screwdriver, now?


chamelon you have to put the poster under the door and you put the screwdriver in the keyhole
and then the key to the door will be on the poster.


i need help on level 3 with the mouse head and the tiles.


on lvl 12, im stuck at the green wall, and I am ready to quit the game altogether! help please!

KristÌn MarÌa June 21, 2005 6:35 PM

hi - great game - but I am stuck in level 9 - I have used "QUEST" on the PC - have seen the letters "S_W_T_E" but don¥t know what to do know :S


omg on level 13 what do you do? i just got to it and im like totally lost can someone HELP PLEASE!!!!

MelonCandy June 23, 2005 3:15 PM

So today, I found and decided to play MOTAS
...This is major spoilers

Okay, Level 13:
You're in the room with the MS logo. Go out the left door

Remove the wedge from underneath the wagon wheel. Remove the manhole, and a box pops up, connecting a wire that powers the elevator.

Go to floor B, and show the eye your card. Get which way the colors face. See a compass on floor D. On floor A, input those colors in a square shape, and pull the lever to get a key.

On floor C, get a bucket and tape. To the left of where the wagon was, use these items to put out the fire, and then opent he door with the key.

Gerohide June 23, 2005 5:37 PM

This is my favorite level; use the elevator to collect keys and water proof tape, etc, and that's it; on level C I think, the color puzzle, just pick one of shaded corners and click to reveal red and then click on the square next to the red to reveal light red and it should go counter-clockwise... do this for all four corners.

jupiter June 25, 2005 4:12 AM

yeah for sure can't find the bucket. Any pointers?


why cant i enter the flood room on lvl 14? i click on it, see the feet cursor, but i wont go in. does anyone know why?


nevermind. i figured it out.


I am stuck on level 12. After I cut the green wire, I went to the opened room now available and clicked on the fake wall, but nowhere between the other room and that one did I find a key. If anyone would be so kind as to help me, I would really appreciate it. Thanks so much.

Rebecca Gifford November 11, 2007 10:11 AM

I am also having the same problem as mel and lola were having. whenever I put the unox number, password, and belender number in, I no longer have acess to anything on the screen except for my computer, PLEASE HELP!!!!!!


ugh, level 19! I have the ladder and I've grown the tree, but I can't place the ladder against the tree! I'm so frustrated, help please!


grr...my tree is there and i have the ladder but i keep clicking and i cant put it against it....(level 19)


i click on the alien and the ufo but nothing happens. iv restarted the gam twice but i cant seem to get passed it! someon PLEASE HELP!!


I dont get it! I am on level 9 and I got my four letters, but I have tried EVERY combination of the four and none of them work! Some of the ones I tried werent even words. HELP!


still can somebody tell me how to get past the computer on lvl 16


For level 19, I figured why some people couldn't use the ladder on the tree:

put the seed in the pot while you're in the past, not in the present...So the tree gets enough time to grow, i guess. Then get back to the future, the tree should be so big you can't see the leaves


Level 16

I enter everything correctly but still have no access to my documents. i have access to My computer and blender but nothing else. I followed the walkthrough.
Is this just a glitch? it is very frustrating.

Matt Weiner January 10, 2008 8:51 AM

Everyone having trouble with level 18, I think there's an error in the walkthrough.

You have to make the orb float twice (or maybe it matters which way you make the orb float). If you switch the top switch and the row of five, it'll float again. Then when you go into the past and click on the alien, it will reverse time. (I had to wait a few seconds for the animation to start.)
Anyway, play around a little with the two ways you can make the orb float. When I just followed the walkthrough instructions, I could go into the past but not reverse time. I found another walkthrough on the web that worked


I dont understand... Im on level 13 and have looked at the walkthrough... (both of them) and they both say that the colour machine is facing a different direction when I walk into the room... I have tried them both and put the colours in... But I have no golden key!!! Please help me!!

veggienewt January 18, 2008 4:43 PM

i'm having the same problem as leanne

veggienewt January 18, 2008 4:53 PM

nevermind, i fixed it
leanne you might want to try pressing load game then restarting at 13

Anonymous January 18, 2008 7:56 PM

Stuck on level 16 got all 3 codes press login then nothing happens apart from cant get into blender doc. tried all the walkthroughs cant see what im doing wrong. Can anyone help? Is this a glitch or me being stupid?


okay... stuck way back on level 4!!

got the panel pieces put back into the security panel and it's working

but door is still locked!?




i am stuck on level 16 i think it is.
with the computer.
i have got all the codes and put them in correctly,
i know i have
yet it wont let me click 'my documents' as the walkthrough says...

what do i do.. can u help me please :)


magicalistic77 January 26, 2008 10:03 AM

help! stuck on level 4, the laser will NOT cut the stupid triangle...AUGH!
pls somebody help me so stuck!


On Level 14, I am not able to access the fifth piece of sandpaper.

I assume that flood control is the door that is on the right of the street (immediately past the clothesline). I can open the door, and the cursor changes to footprints. However, when I click, there is just a clacking sound and nothing happens. Other people have complained of the same thing but there were no replies. Am I doing something wrong or is there a glitch?

Thanks in advance!

aamb_li4blue January 31, 2008 3:41 PM

hey can somebody tell me how to put alien into UFO n send him in level 18 i tried repeating n restarting but of no use. please help. i m just one level far off

Ringmaster256 February 1, 2008 5:17 PM

Needing assistance on lv 18...

when i'm sitting there in the past with the alien and the UFO, what do i do? more specifically than clicking on the alien and the UFO, since that refuses to work out so easily


Same problem as thesource, cant read the code in 18 because it runs off the screen. Is it just a firefox-bug or something else?


I have a question: How do you get to the mailroom in level 7? The spoiler doesnt help me out.


On the green wall, I've got it down to 52 clicks. Does anyone else know a faster method with fewer clcks?

Snowflake March 6, 2008 10:19 PM

OMG!!! I FINISHED IT!!!! YAAAAAY!!! 3.15am Took me hours and i'm not ashamed to admit it.

Had some real trouble on level 16 with the computer. I've noticed other people have as well but no one seemed to have put up a solution so here's a couple for ya.

Problem 1. I couldnt acsess my doncuments even though I had put in the codes

Solution - For the second password dont put in the V eg. instead of V*.** just put in *.**

Problem 2. Okay so I had messed around with the codes for quite sometime and then it wouldnt let me type in the codes at all!!

Solution - Reseting the level 300 times doesnt work lol and I doubt anyone would want to start again at this point. I found if I reset the level once and then clicked as if I was going to join the chat room then went and switched the power on and went to the computer it let me type in the passwords again.

Hpe this works for anyone else who had these problems


wow this was ridiculously hard. i had to have some help doing it, but FINALLY finished!!! YEAAAA. took a couple hours too


when will the next one come out??


great game!


To SNOWFLAKE (March 6, 2008)

Thank you ever so much for your solution at level 16.
I had to start the game all over again, because I got stock the first time I started level 16 until I saw your solution. Many thanks again!!


This is definitely a 10-stars game!!!
I just visited the website of the creator of this game, and there are 5 other games on it. Free to play.

Go to http://www.albartus.com

I am at the TV moniters and I cannot seem to get the things in the right order no matter what! help?


im stuck in lvl 17..

after the UFO took off i clicked on the paper

i dont know that to do~~~

oh finally i finished it...

waiting for lvl 20 to come out :)

chelsey May 9, 2008 10:50 PM

i need help with level 15 too...i have the same problem as jesse..please help!!!

Anonymous May 28, 2008 4:28 PM

Oh wow. Level 20 help? anyone? Please?


I think it was around levels 12-13 where MOTAS turned into "just another room escape game". It became just another game where logic's sometimes nothing more than a hindrance, where you had to take steps that are not at all logical, like

putting the card to the picture of the eye

in what way is it something anyone would consider doing - except for the trial-and-error method? Or there was even some pixel hunting or so, like

level 12 where revealing the hidden passage in the furthest laser room

took some eye gymnastics.

Shame because it really was a nice game for the first 5-6 levels. But then it failed to sustain interest.

Still it's better than many point-n-clickers though.


MOTAS is gone! Where did it go??


I cant get stupid alien in the stupid spaceship! AUGH! Someone give me detailed instructions please!


yay, i finished! Make more! loved it ! =)


if I keep clicking I BE MORE DETAILED!!!


I'm on level 5. I can't figure out the smiley-face code panel. The walk through says what to do, but I don't just want to be told the code, I want to know how one gets it. Can someone help please?

katie kate August 9, 2008 10:38 PM

Please, this is driving me so crazy. I tried not to use the walkthrough, but I'm on level 18 and I can't get the alien into the ship. Is it a glitch or am I doing something wrong?

Topcat321b August 12, 2008 3:00 PM

I get almost through level 12, but when I get to the place where I shine the light on the wall to get the numbers, it is so dark that I can't read any of them. The light is on and I do move it up and down. But they are still too dark to see.


Oops, I just played the latest last room (with the six coloured lights and the PC), now it's gone to 'to be continued'. The only thing is, my partner loves this game. How can I get it back to the beginning of that room without starting from the very beginning of the whole game? It remembers where I've got to, so she won't be able to play that room herself, as when I come onto it now, it takes me to 'to be continued'. Any ideas?


Finished this game in 6313 clicks! :P

By the way, for people having trouble on level 18...

In the room with the 3 dice things on the wall, get the arrows to go in this order: Up, Down, Up, Down, Up.

Then just play around with the other switches (Circles) until the MOTAS ball starts floating.

If you'd got it floating before and then tried clicking the alien and nothing happens, you'd entered the wrong combination for the MOTAS ball to start floating. There is more than one combination and the one I mentioned earlier works every time ;)


Anybody know when he'll re-release level 20 and come out with 21?

And I sincerely apologize to the administrators for a submitting copy and paste comment on the other MOTAS post (didn't realize that rule until afterwords when I browsed through your TOS).

[Edit: Thanks, R.J. -Pam]

chris, milwaukee December 15, 2008 7:30 PM

Lol @ the C64 with the DVD drive on level 9!!


It's a totally brilliant game, I really love it. The only problem, it's not saveable so to continue it I'd have to start it again the next time I play.
Got to the 11th level now, without reading a single walkthrough.

I like it a lot, reminds me good puzzle games of which Sierra's Dr. Brain games are real masterpiece.


It is a cool game. By the way, your progress is automatically saved. When you re-enter MOTAS just click on the "Continue Game" button. You can also jump to any level that you have completed. Bring up the options menu by clicking on the "M" on the top right-hand corner in any level, then click "Load Game".


yahoo...waiting for level 21..: )


thanks! :)

Yes, I noticed the Save option the next time I came to the game. Was ready to start from the beginning, so finding out my 17th level was saved was a nice thing!
Finished it. Had quite some problems with growing the tree and a few other thingies, so on the upper levels had to check walkthroughts.

It's really really good!!

Anonymous March 22, 2009 8:38 PM

I don't understand how the alien gets into the ship. It's broken and for some reason, the alien won't really move into the ship.


I'm at the color box thing, and I KNOW I've put the correct colors for the correct sides (North Red, South Yellow, East Green, West Blue) but I am not getting the key. Glitch?)

Anonymous July 21, 2009 3:28 AM

Having trouble on lvl 14:

When I get to the color puzzle, I only have 6 pieces in the center that seem to just rotate. Does anyone know how to move one of them to the "top left space." I've tried for like 5 minutes, and I am fresh out of ideas. :)


@level 20, i cannot get fan, when i use screwdriver on the fan, it dissapears. help!


After i enter the world quest then what I need to do next?

tHEsecluded November 28, 2009 11:45 PM

Hey, I'm on level 6 and I can't find the key in the trap door room. Any help?


I am on level 20, at the very end. I can't figure out the wheel thingy. There are 4 buttons you can push, but i don't understand how to rearrange them to line up in the correct order.


I'm dying on the end of Level 12, and the walkthrough isn't helping me at all.




But I know there's more to come.

Trust me. I almost pulled my hair out at the last puzzle.

There's no way to create a mini walkthrough for that puzzle T.T

Cyberjar88 October 5, 2010 3:12 AM

Am I the only one who wants/needs more MOTAS?


No, Cyberjar88, you are NOT the only one!


On level 10 I tried to solve it without the walkthrough...it is now "stuck."
Somehow I got rid of one of the tan quadrants. After that, even lining up colors does not work due to the missing piece.

Ragequit in lack of a "reset" button.


A great mention for the vault! I have to really finish this sooner or later.


I can't get that wheel puzzle solved on lvl 20. :-(


This game is just astounding..its surreal, intriguing and creepy.
I am very, very disappointed with the ending, though...I was expecting a showdown, an explanation, or a concluding video segment. I want to know why this dude was trapped in those rooms! But meh...looks like we have to imagine it for ourselves.


Guys,I'm only 9 and I've alrady solved the green wall!

Eric M. Kangas September 1, 2011 10:29 PM

I need help on level 9, I've entered the word QUEST, but I'm stuck with the 4 letters in the 2 room's my letters are W-R-D-A
can someone help me out?

Catherine January 1, 2012 1:57 PM

Help! I'm at the part where you open the UFO, but I can't. Whenever I do the up up right right down thing, when I click on the down it says, "Invalid target specified" and won't open. I've tried other things but they never work.


Hey all, I have flash player installed, but for some reason the first screen is staying black. Is there anything I can do to change this so that I can actually play the game? Cheers!


I can't click on anything on the ufo screen of level 18. I have tried reloading a couple of times (that worked for a glitch on a previous level), but nothing has changed. I have really enjoyed this game and would like to finish it. Any ideas? Thanks.


I dug through the comments on the other MOTAS page and found the problem. Gah. Never would have thought of that, especially since there were a couple of glitches on previous levels that prevented me from proceeding.


The website is currently down. :( Hope it's not permanent!

https://www.google.com/accounts/o8/id?id=AItOawnwVD8nxXLnQ8lvgrdws4F7kO4x2u1plCg August 15, 2013 2:48 PM

I (and others) have been waiting years for the next installment. Last I heard, Mr. Albartus was asking for ideas for future levels, but then posted that he has enough for a few "beyond 20" levels. I am guessing that, since we haven't heard as much as a peep from him in a handful of years, expecting more levels is unrealistic. If anyone has any new information, it would be appreciated.


kay I'm on level 16 doing what i am suppose to do after the blender code and than nuddin happening on that . so can some one help me with that .! peas and carrots . :D


I need help with Level 3, I already looked in the walkthrough, it says click the first tile twice time and the second once and the first once. I did it. But it ain't work. Pls help :)

Reuz June 24, 2014 6:17 AM replied to Danny

You fricken genius, I'm 11 and I'm stuck on the 1st level (needed only one hint to get to Level 3, then had no idea what to do on the tiles thingy, so I came for a bit of the walkthrough) But by now man, ur alot older than me


Help! As with others, I can't access the game. Black tunnel-ey looking screen.
I am working a MacBook Pro 17" from 2009 with OS X 10.5.8. Flash is Safari 5.0.6.
Since my equipment is such a dinosaur, these are the latest updates that are available to me. I read through the comments and the pages referred by other users to assist with this are no longer available. Except the one in Dutch, but that looked more like a communications provider than a gaming forum.
Am I cursed to never experience MOTAS?

Thanks very much for any help.
