The Clock

This next puzzle requires you to match the hands of the clock with the correct patterns.

Every hand has a different insect, and the patterns refer to the markings on the plant pots near the clock.

Refer to the image below to understand.

Every hand has a different insect on it
Every hand has a different insect on it.

The plant pot has a certain pattern on it, which is among the patterns on the clock.

On this plant pot, you can see purple butterflies.

The other plant point near the clock has another pattern, and purple butterflies will also go there.

Check throughout the room for other plant pots (on the ceiling) to see what kind of butterflies land on them.

The answer is this:

  • Purple butterflies land on the double-lined patterns
  • Green butterflies land on the double-stripped patterns
  • Blue and yellow butterflies land on a pattern with a stripped and a full line
This is how you should match the clock hands with the patterns on the clock quadrant.

In this puzzle, you must press on a level after matching the animal wheels (inside the wall containers) with the right numbers.

Every wall container contains a different animal with a specific footprint.

Remember every animal’s footprint and look through the room to find them.

Count every set of footprints and match this with the number wheel on the animal wheel.

The solution is:

  • Elephant – 6
  • Zebra – 3
  • Deer – 4
  • Lion – 6 

Then, pull the level down and grab the key.

The next puzzle is a lock with a 4-digit solution. You should notice that there’s a zebra-patterned sticker on the lock.

You should pick the zebra figurine from its wall container and observe it.

The solution is the number of green stripes on each zebra’s feet.

Each foot is numbered from 1-4, according to the order of the lock digits.

Each foot is numbered from 1-4, according to the order of the lock digits.

Foot 1 has 5 stripes, foot 2 has 4 stripes, foot 3 has 1 stripe, and foot 4 has 3 stripes.

So, the code for the padlock is 5-4-1-3. Enter it into the padlock to unlock it.

Then, grab the note, tile, and lockbox inside.

5. Animal Species

Animal Species
Animal Species

This puzzle requires you to place the anima tiles you find through the room in the correct order.

For this, you’ll need the animal tiles first.

The Frog tile is inside the clock. The Fly tile is inside the Elephant display.

The Rose tile is on the ground, and the Snake tile is on the ledge to the right of the Staring Eyes.

The Eagle tile is in the compartment with the zebra padlock.

Next, you’ll need The Origin of Species book on the ledge near one of the plant pots with the purple butterflies.

Open the book and look through it.

You’ll notice that the Eagle is at the top of the food chain.

Under it are several strings of animals, each in the role of prey and predator.

The string you should be looking at is you have tiles for – Rose, Fly, Frog, Snake, Eagle.

Place the tiles in this order on the “Species” tileset and grab the key.

Once you grab the key, move to the next puzzle.

6. Lock Box

The lockbox you picked up from the container with the Zebra Padlock is a puzzle by itself.

Look at the small picture in the bottom-right of the lockbox. It’s the image of a mouse.

This is a hint to the mouse drawing split into multiple pieces throughout the room:

  • The first piece is under the power switch
  • The second piece is under a leaf on the ground, at the base of the tree
  • The third piece is in the Zebra Padlock container, where you find the lock box and the Eagle tile piece

Combine all three pieces to form the complete mouse drawing and zoom in on it.

Combine all three pieces to form the complete mouse drawing and zoom in on it.

The writing on the side reads: “The first was the number of limbs. It was followed by limbs touching the pi. The final number is the ones pointing westwards.

With these instructions, you get the following:

  • Number of limbs – 8
  • Limbs touching the pi (circle) – 6
  • Limbs pointing towards west – 3

The code for the lockbox is 8-6-3, then. Grab the key from the lockbox.

7. Insert the keys into the door

Now you have all the keys you need to escape the Underground Lab.

Insert all the keys into their appropriate key sockets on the door.

Insert the keys into the door
Insert the keys into the door

Every key will fit a specific socket, so try them one by one until you find the right keys for the right sockets.

Once you open the door, you’ll escape the room and end the game!

My name is Alex and I have a knack for social media in all its shapes and forms. I’ve dealt with such things for quite some time and I noticed that many people have issues with social media and technicalities.

Unforeseen errors, bugs, and other problems make their use of social media problematic. These things will be discussed amply in the guides on Whizcase.

I'll present the facts as they are, and offer quick and easy solutions for them.
