Puzzle elements


The central area of this puzzle is large. To the left there are three rooms, and to the right there are two rooms. In the main area, there is a fan that leads to the first right room, which has a jammer, a switch for the fan outside, and a blue door, and a ladder that leads back outside. The second right room shares a copper wall with the first, and a purple barrier leads back outside. Back on the left side, a purple barrier leads to the first room, where we see a driller. There is a blue door to the second room with yet another driller in it. A pressure plate outside leads to the third left room, which eventually leads to the progress wheel behind a blue door.


A basic hint:

[ hint ]
Since the name of the puzzle is Duet, throughout the puzzle there will be a partnership between the drillers and the jammer.

If you are having trouble getting started:

[ hint ]
The first task is to turn the fan on. You don't need to enter the room to do that.

If you are confused about what to do next:

[ hint ]
The second thing to do is to get both drillers out in the open

If you can't find useful work for the jammer:

[ hint ]
Notice that there is a ladder that brings out of the first left room. The jammer does not need to open the blue door to that room, it is best used elsewhere. Remember that jammers can work through driller holes and through purple walls.
