Puzzle elements


When you enter the puzzle, you find yourself in a long hallway, with a set of four rooms on the left. The first three rooms have grill walls facing the hallway, and the fourth room is open. A section of the wall between each set of rooms is drillable. The first room has the progress wheel, the second has a teleporter, and a ladder that leads back outside.. The third room has a driller that is already activated on the last wall, and there is a second teleporter in the fourth room.

Trivia and glitches

  • Even though the previous puzzle is visible across the sea from various rooms of this puzzle, the game does not allow you to use the teleporters once you've gone outside of the puzzle, so it isn't possible to instantly move there.
  • There are some angles in the far corner of the third room, from where it is possible to drill the wall in the second room, and to use the teleporter in that room. This can lead to a quick solution of the puzzle.
