Puzzle elements


As you enter the puzzle across a long rope bridge, you find yourself in a large room with a red and a blue emitter. Going from left to right, there are four rooms.

In the first room on the far left, there is a drillable wall and a window looking outside, and a blue receiver that gives access to the progress wheel. There is a grill wall that looks towards the second room.

In the second room, there is a teleporter and a blue door controlled by a red receiver outside.

In the third room, there is a connector, a blue door controlled by a red emitter inside the room, and a drillable wall towards the fourth room.

In the fourth room, there is a driller and a purple barrier that leads back outside.


A basic hint:

[ hint ]
Since the name of the puzzle is Escape, you will have to figure out a way to escape out of each individual room out into the open with all of the equipment

If you're having trouble getting started:

[ hint ]
You cannot move equipment across the purple barrier by carrying it. So start by drilling the wall on the fourth room, and see what you can activate from there. Your objective should be to get access to the teleporter

If you got the teleporter, but are stuck inside:

[ hint ]
Remember that a teleporter can be used across most types of barriers except solid walls and blue doors. In particular, using it across drilled holes while you're holding onto equipment can be very effective.
