The walkthrough only covers the easy version of the game.
Dr. Brain has just put the finishing touches on his latest experiment; the
Interdimensional Transporter Machine (IDTM). You win the coin toss to see
who gets to try it out first. Armed with nothing more than a special
jumpsuit,, you are sent on your way by Dr. Brain. However, something goes
terribly wrong. The IDTM breaks apart and you crash-land in an alternative
universe filled with strange fauna and flora. Marooned and surrounded by
Robots eager to harness your human brainpower, you must find the lost pieces
of the IDTM before the robots rebuild it as a gateway to Earth. The Robots
have created puzzles in this bizzare landscape to identify the smart
creatures whose brainpower they wish to harness. Are you smart enough and
fast enough to solve the puzzles, defeat the Robots, and ensure the survival
Return to Earth! Find the eleven missing IDTM pieces by exploring different
environments, solving perplexing puzzles, using strange indigenous tools,
and defeating the Robots and other dangerous creatures.
Every level, with the exceptions of Levels 2, 8, 13 and 14, contain a piece
of the Interdimensional Transporter Machine. Collect all 11 pieces to return
to Earth.Often the pieces are guarded by perplexing puzzles and hostile
Througout the game you will explore five environments. They are:
Jungle: Levels 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 10, and 13.
Cavern: Levels 3, 4, 8, 11, and 12.
Pollution: Levels 5, 6, 7 and 13.
Outpost: Levels 4, 7, 8 and 13.
Metropolis: Levels 9, 14 and 15.
Jungle, Cavern and Metropolis are the only environments that can be found by
themselves. Pollution is found within the Jungle only. Robot Outposts litter
the land, and are only found within other environments. The robot Metropolis
is a large Outpost that takes up an entire level, and is the only
environment that CANNOT have any other type of environment with it. If it
does have another type with it, it turns into an Outpost. The three
Metropolises make up the Robot Fortess, Level 9 being the Outer Ring, Level
14 being the Middle Ring and Level 15 being the Inner Ring. At the center of
the Robot Fortress is the final IDTM piece.
Characters and Enemies
Botan: Readings show that these creatures are comprised of mostly plant
matter. If you talk to them, they may help you.
Grass Bug: These harmless insects won't hurt you. But more importantly, you
can pick them up and put them in your inventory. They can be used as decoys
to distract the Mutans, and they are poisonous to the Snapdragon!
Dragonfly: Found near water, the dragonfly's venom slows their victim down,
making it harder to get away. This fast-moving insect is pretty easy to
defeat, in fact, one zap is usually all it takes. Once you have beaten the
Dragonfly, you can pick up a stinger to use later on. This stinger will slow
down any player or creature!
Fumblebee: The sneaky fumble bee can snatch items right out of your
inventory! It's best to keep your distance from this giant insect, which is
always found near flowers. If you zap a Fumble Bee enough times, you will
get a Fumble Bee Stinger. You can use the stinger to make another player or
creature drop an item!
Snapdragon: These are large meat-eating plants. To a snapdragon, you look
like a nice snack, so keep your distance! Grass bugs are poisonous to
Spider: Be careful. It looks like they are very protective, and can be
dangerous if you get too close.
Moles: These easy-going cave dwellers may have helpful information if you
Worms: These are just your garden-variety worms. They won't hurt you, but
can be used to help you get past Roots.
Bat: When they attack in waves, the bats can hurt you, but when you defeat
them, their wings remain, and you can use their wings like boomerangs to
reach switches that are far away.
Fungus: You'll know the fungus by its slimy appearance. The best way to
defeat it is just to run away from it, but that might be hard -- it's faster
than you are!
Rock Monster: These living stone giants can crush anything that gets in
their way, including you! Be very careful around these slow-moving
creatures. Luckily, they are limited to the lava areas of the caverns, and
can only attack if they are standing right next to their enemy. These things
are so intent on destruction that they will even chase after worms!
Root: Tough and strong, the roots attack from the ground itself, entangling
the feet of its victims. Watch your step! You can distract the Root for a
few seconds if you toss it a worm.
Mutan: Stay away from these bad-tempered beasts! They were almost killed by
toxic pollution, and they're still mad about it. They will chase almost
anything that moves, but due to the level of pollution they received, they
can't step on unpolluted ground.
Eye Bot: These guys have a single eye stalk rising out of their metal
bodies, and aren't very smart. They'll shoot at almost anything that moves,
especially you! They'll start shooting from a distance, and their zaps get
stronger the closer they get. It's best to defeat these enemies before they
can get right next to you.
Guard Bot: These guards can detect non-robots even farther away than the
Tread Bots, and they are just as deadly.
Sentry Bot: These guards can't move, but walk past them and you'll get a
nasty zap. Unfortunately, sometimes you have to walk past them!
Tread Bot: This guard is constantly on the move, looking for anything
non-robotic to shoot at.
Quiz Bot: When a Quiz Bot hits you with a Quiz Bomb, you better be quick to
answer. If you don't answer fast enough, you'll lose some brainpower.
Bag of Seeds: Mutans hate grass! Use this bag of grass seeds to surround
them with grass and render them incapable of moving.
Botan Bamboo Skirt: With this in your inventory, Fumblebees can't make you
drop items and no-one can use a Fumblebee stinger on you.
Brain Fruit: Use this handy item to restore your brainpower.
Disguises: Use a Disguise to transform into another creature. Blend in with
Dragonfly Stinger: Use the Dragonfly's stinger to slow an enemy or another
Fumblebee Stinger: Use this stinger to make creatures drop items that they
Keys: Use these keys to unlock doors and open gates.
Snapdragon Seed: Defeat a Snapdragon to get one of these. Throw this at your
enemies to damage or destroy them.
Spiky Pear: Use this handy weapon to damage or destroy your enemies.
Batwing Boomerang: Defeat a Bat to get one of these. Use the boomerang to
hit levers which are out of your reach.
Disguises: Use a Disguise to transform into another creature. Blend in with
Frozen Crystal: Throw this crystal at your enemies to freeze them in their
tracks. While frozen, enemies can't attack or chase you.
Medicine Flask: This helpful mole medicine restores your brainpower.
Paw of Gathering: Use the Ancient Paw to grab items which are out of your
Primitive Weapon: Throw this at your enemies to damage or destroy them.
Relics: Lots of moles like to collect Relics. If you give them one, they may
give you a handy item in return.
Spiked Club: Same as the Primitive Weapon but it can be used several times.
Zap Mine: Place a Zap Mine on the ground and it becomes invisible. Then, if
someone steps on it (you or an enemy) the mine will damage them.
OUTPOST / METROPOLIS
Access Cards: Place an Access Card in a lock to open a door or a hatch.
Brain Orb: This orb can restore brainpower multiple times.
Brain Shield: With this helmet in your inventory, Quiz Bots won't be able to
Disguise Chips: Use a Disguise to transform into another creature. Blend in
with the natives!
Drill: This robot tool can be used to drill through rock.
Dynamite: Use this explosive to blast through stalagmites.
Energy Drainer: This item will slow down enemies, giving you an oppurtunity
Force Field: Set up force fields around your enemies to slow them down.
Freeze Ray Gun: Shoot this at your enemies to freeze them in their tracks.
While frozen, enemies can't attack or chase you. The Freeze Ray can be used
Giant Magnet: Use the magnet to hit levers that are out of your reach.
Magnetized Arm: Use the Magnetized Arm to grab items which are out of your
Plasma Orb: Use this plasma weapon to damage or destroy your enemies.
Plasma Staff: Same as the Plasma Orb, but it can be used multiple times.
Power Charge: Use the power charge to make you run faster.
Robot Vest: With this in your inventory, you're protected against enemy
attacks for a while.
Puzzles & Quizzes
Throughout your journey through this strange world, you will encounter
puzzles. Solving these puzzles allow you to cross dangerous paths, open
doors, unlock secret stashes, and get brainpower. These are the puzzles you
AFFINITY NETWORK PUZZLE
A group of creatures is not satisfied with its arrangement. Push on the
neighbouring creatures. Every creature must match at least one of its
neighbours with at least one characteristic. When all the neighbours are
satisfied, you have completed the puzzle.
BEAM TRANSFORMER PUZZLE
A laser beam fence blocks your path! The colored lasers flow from left to
right, passing through transformers that can change the colors of the
lasers. To short out the lasers, so you can get by, the colors of the
rightmost lasers need to match the colored rectangular lights on the far
right transformer. When a laser entering the transformer matches the
rectangular light next to it, it lights up. A white rectangle will light up
>from any color laser. When all three rectangular lights on the transformer
are lit up, the laser beams will change to the colors indicated by the
colored arrows. If there is a white arrow, the beam's color will not be
altered. Click on a transformer to change the pattern of colored lights on
its side. Find a sequence that will change the beams coming from the left
side of the puzzle to the colors on the rectangular lights on the right side
of the puzzle.
FUSE BOX PUZZLE
There are slots on the ground with fuses lying around. The fuses look like a
cross with a different color on each side.
You need to pick up the fuses and arrange them in the slots so that the side
of a fuse of each points to the points to the side of another fuse which is
the same colour. A completed fuse box puzzle might look like this:
R R-----------R R
R B-----------B R
As you can see, you need to match colours to colours to solve the puzzle.
Hint: Try laying the pieces out in your inventory to figure out the puzzle
before you put the pieces
PATTERN BRIDGE PUZZLE
If you see fish, crabs, or orbs moving around, pick them up. You'll need
them for a pattern bridge puzzle. A pattern bridge puzzle is when a bridge
of creatures has been broken up by robots. Look at the bridge pieces already
laid down and try to determine if there is a pattern. Place all the missing
pieces where they belong to solve the puzzle.But be careful. If you try to
place a piece where it doesn't belong, the bridge guardian will zap you!
PATTERN MINEFIELD PUZZLE
If you see a field of flowers, tiles, or patterened rocks ahead you know
that a Pattern Minefield is coming up. You must look for a path and, if you
take a wrong step, you'll get zapped. Try looking for, at the beginning of a
Minefield, a tile that matches one touching it. If the one it matches
matches another one, keep looking and you'll find the path. This is probably
the easiest kind of puzzle.
SYMBOL REFLEX PUZZLE
If you see two odd pairs of statues, eggs, or poles, you know you've come to
a Symbol Reflex puzzle. Each time you click an object in the puzzle, one or
more of its characteristics will change. Unlike the Affinity Network puzzle,
each set of partners must match in ALL characteristics. If you take too long
to solve the puzzle you will get zapped. Once all the sets are matched, you
beat the puzzle.
TOGGLE NETWORK PUZZLE
Here there are a certain number of items (levers or statues) that can be in
one of two positions, up/down or on/off. You must set the items so they are
all in the same position. Sounds simple, huh? Well, some items are linked to
others so that if one changes position, so does the other. However, this is
still an easy puzzle.
WATER PIPES PUZZLE
Pick up the pipes lying around and fit them into the a nearby pipe system.
The pipes should fit in so there aren't any open ends in the system. You
can't rotate pipes: they only fit in one direction.
WHEEL LOCK PUZZLE
This puzzle is a lot like a fuse box puzzle. Just rotate the wheel so that
each color is the same as the color it points to. Check the indicators
between the wheels to see if you've made a match.
Which of the four shapes at the bottom fits the sequence at the top? Pick
the right one or get a nasty zap!
If you could fold the picture at the top into a cube, what would it look
like? Pick one of the pictures at the bottom to make your choice.
You are shown a target shape, then must choose which shape or shapes are
needed to create the target.
You see a line pattern, and the same pattern with some of the lines removed.
You have to choose a pattern that when added to the partial pattern, makes
the given shape.
You have to pick which of the choices is the same as the box on top, only

Puzzles: Pattern Minefield
Walkthrough: Walk through the trees and you'll see the crater where the IDTM
landed. In the area are several Brain Fruit, pick them up and use them.
(Well, I think you should use the because you lose a lot of brainpower in
the crash.) Walk past the big TV. Now, flip the switch and go through the
door. In the clearing you come to you'll find 6 spiky pears and 3 brain
fruit. You should also pick up a Grass Bug for the upcoming Snapdragon. In
the center you'll find a Pattern Minefield. Cross it and flip the lever on
the other side, then return and go through the door at the edge of the
clearing. Go around the lake, then kill the Snapdragon and grab Machine
Puzzles: Symbol Reflex, Pattern Minefield
Enemies: Fumblebee, Snapdragon
Walkthrough: Start out by solving the Symbol Reflex puzzle. After you solve
it, the dinosaur's tail will vanish into the ground, clearing a path for
you. You'll now come to a large clearing. Pick up three Grass Bugs (there
are three Snapdragons later) and also there are some Spiky Pears which you
can use to kill the three Fumblebees and get three Fumblebee stingers. Now,
approach the two Botans. Speak to the one on the bamboo stool. Click
'village' then click 'come in' and the Botan blocking the entrance will
move, allowing you to enter the village. Cross the village. The Botan near
the big tree has 3 Brain Fruit if you use your Fumblebee stingers on him.
Now speak to the Botan near the locked gate. Click 'key' then click 'key'
again to receive the gate key. Open the gate with it. Go through the gate
and cross the Pattern Minefield. Now kill the three Snapdragons, and go down
the stairs to Level 3.
Puzzles: Symbol Reflex, Pattern Bridge, Pattern Minefield
Walkthrough: Walk down the passage. Ignore the mole (he has nothing
interesting to say) and go past the stash. Solve the Symbol Reflex puzzle
and return to the stash, which is now open. Collect the three Primitive
Weapons inside. Go back past the Symbol Reflex and into a room with three
bats. Kill them and grab the batwing boomerangs they leave behind. Now go
down the passage. Grab the two fish and put them in place to solve the
Pattern Bridge puzzle. On the other side is a mole who isn't that
helpful...yet. Go through the room he's in and down the passage. Cross the
Pattern Minefield. On the other side is an open stash. Grab the Relic inside
and return to the mole. Speak to him. Click 'trade' then 'yes' and the relic
will disappear from your inventory. You will get a Paw of Gathering in
return. Search the room that the moleman is in to find a door with a lever
on the other side. Use a Batwing to hit the lever, opening the door. Go
through. Now, use the Paw of Gathering to grab Piece #2 from the moles.
Puzzles: Wheel Lock, Pattern Bridge, Symbol Reflex, Pattern Minefield
Walkthrough: Solve the Wheel Lock puzzle to open the door. Go through into
the mole's house. The mole isn't very helpful, but you should grab the Power
Charge next to him; you'll need it for the Fungus. Go through the house into
the mushroom forest. Get the three Medicine Flasks in the forest, then go
cross the Pattern Bridge. Now you'll come to a room where the floor is
covered in fungus. There are also two Fungus creatures in the room, so use
your Power Charge. Once you've got through the fungus room you will be in
the first Robot Outpost. Ignore the Drainbrain machine with the mole for
now, and go on to the room with the Symbol Reflex puzzle. Solve it and go
through the door to the room containing a power switch. Flip the switch and
return to the mole. Speak to him (evidently you've turned off the machine)
and click 'key' to get an Access Card. Use it in the nearby lock to open the
door. Now cross the pattern minefield for Piece #3!
Puzzles: Symbol Reflex, Wheel Lock, Water Pipes, Pattern Bridge, Pattern
Enemies: Eye Bot, Dragonfly, Snapdragon
Walkthrough: Walk along the passage. Go through the Botan village, and after
some searching, you should find a Symbol Reflex puzzle. Solve it to open a
stash of spiky pears which you will need later. Now go and find the entrance
to the Pollution. As soon as you enter the Pollution you'll see a Wheel Lock
puzzle. Solve it and a path will appear in the polluted pond, leading to a
stash with a robot vest. Continue through the pollution and you'll come to a
Water Pipes puzzle. Solve it to open a path across the nearby polluted pond.
When you get to the other side an Eye Bot will appear. Defeat it with your
spiky pears and then cross the Pattern Bridge puzzle. On the other side
you'll find two Snapdragons and a Dragonfly. If you want, beat the Dragonfly
to get its stinger. Also, pick up the Key. On the other side of this area is
a Pattern Minefield with a hidden stash on the other side containing 5 Brain
Fruit. Now go back all the way to the Botan Village. Here, use the Key to
unlock the orchard. In the orchard is Piece #4.
Puzzles: Affinity Network, Beam Transformer, Water Pipes, Wheel Lock,
Enemies: Eye Bot, Mutan, Spider
Walkthrough: You'll appear in a large Botan Village. Scattered around are
lots and lots of Brain Fruit. Search around a little and you'll find an
Affinity Network Puzzle. When you solve it you will gain access to a stash
containing 8 spiky pears. Now head to the opposite end of the village. There
are two Eye Bots there who periodically change into Botans. Beat them with
your Spiky Pears. When you beat them they leave behind two chips. Each one
transforms you into a Botan. Save them; you'll need them later. Now solve
the Beam Transformer puzzle and progress to the Pollution. Here you'll find
a Wheel Lock puzzle and a Water Pipes puzzle. The Water Pipes puzzle only
get you a couple of Energy Drainers but the Wheel Lock gives you access to
two teleporters. Go on the right one. You'll appear in a polluted area full
of Mutans. Use a chip to transform into a Botan (so that the Mutans won't
bother you) and collect the three crabs in the area. Now leave by the
teleporter and warp on the other one. Put the crabs in place on the Pattern
Bridge puzzle. Now cross the spider web, avoiding the spiders (or kill them
with spiky pears if you want) and grab Machine Piece #5.
Puzzles: Affinity Network, Water Pipes, Pattern Bridge, Symbol Reflex, Wheel
Enemies: Mutan, Eye Bot
Walkthrough: First, solve the Affinity Network puzzle. This will open a
stash with 6 Spiky Pears in it. Now, head over to the polluted area. Before
entering it, however, speak to the Botan nearby to get some bags of seeds.
Now search the polluted area, being careful of Mutans, for the pipes for the
Water Pipes puzzle. When you have solved the Water Pipes puzzle, search for
the entrance to the Outpost and go in. Kill the Eye Bot with your Spiky
Pears, then collect the Pattern Bridge orbs and cross the Pattern Bridge. On
the other side you'll find a Symbol Reflex puzzle. Solve it and a stash will
open containing a Key. Search around until you find a gate, then put the Key
in the lock there. On the other side of the gate is a Wheel Lock puzzle.
Solve it, then search around until you find a polluted pond with islands in
it. Cross the islands and Machine Piece #6 is on the other side.
Puzzles: Affinity Network, Water Pipes, Pattern Bridge, Wheel Lock, Beam
Enemies: Root, Bat, Tread Bot
Walkthrough: First, go past the Roots and solve the Affinity Network Puzzle.
Once you solve it, a door will open, with 4 Medicine Flasks behind it. Now
solve the Water Pipes puzzle and a hatch will open. Drop through the hatch
into the Mole Village. None of the Moles have anything helpful to say, so
walk through the village and drop through the hatch on the other side. Next,
solve the Pattern Bridge puzzle. Either before or after the puzzle will be
some Primitive Weapons. Kill two of the bats after the Pattern Bridge, then
solve the Wheel Lock puzzle. When you solve it you will have access to three
stashed containing a Spiked Club, 3 Primitive Weapons and 3 Zap Mines. Now
beat the last Bat, and pick up all the Batwing Boomerangs. Now drop through
the hatch you came into the room by. In the room you land in there is a
Tread Bot: KILL IT FAST (I recommend you use the Spiked Club). Now go
through the doors at the edge of the room and use a Batwing Boomerang to hit
the lever. Speak to the Mole, and click the only highlighted word and you
will receive an Access Card. The mole will follow you (don't worry: he helps
you). Now look for a passage in the wall. You will find a very small Outpost
with a Beam Transformer blocking the way. Solve it and put the Access Card
in the lock. The hatch will open, and you can drop through into Level 9...
Puzzles: Affinity Network, Beam Transformer, Fuse Box, Pattern Bridge, Water
Enemies: Eye Bot, Quiz Bot
Walkthrough: Your Mole friend (yep: he's still there) will beat an Eye Bot
for you. Solve the Affinity Network puzzle, and once you solve it, a door
will open. Behind it are 3 stashes containing a Freeze Ray Gun, 2 Robot
Vests, and 6 Plasma Orbs. Also in the room are 3 Bridge Pieces. Now head
past the Affinity Network in the other direction, towards the Quiz Bots.
Collect the Bridge Pieces in their area and don't mind if they quiz you
(because they're the first Quiz Bots in the game, their quizzes are pretty
easy) or you can freeze them with your Freeze Ray Gun. Eventually, your
friend will kill both Quiz Bots. Collect more Bridge Pieces and head for the
Beam Transformer. There are two Eye Bots behind it, and you can kill them if
you want. Once you get through the gate, kill an Eye Bot (if you haven't
already) and let your friend kill the other one. Get more bridge pieces, and
solve the Fuse Box puzzle. Solving it releases the Mole's imprisoned
friends. Now head for the Pattern Bridge. Cross it, then have your friend
kill the two Eye Bots. Solve the Water Pipes puzzle, go through the
consequently opened door and grab Machine Piece #7!
Puzzles: Toggle Network, Pattern Bridge, Fuse Box, Affinity Network, Beam
Enemies: Spider, Fumblebee
Walkthrough: Solve the Toggle Network puzzle and go through the door. Don't
cross the Spider webs yet. Walk around and pick up all the crabs (there are
lots) and cross the Pattern Bridge to the Botan. Talk to him and click
'building friends' then 'problems' then 'Fumble Bees' then 'want' and you
will receive a handy Botan Bamboo Skirt. Go back and search the spider webs.
Eventually you'll find a Fuse Box puzzle and an Affinity Network puzzle. You
get an Access Card for each one you solve. Now search some more and you'll
find a place with three locks. Fit in the two Access Cards you already have
and you'll find the third Key next to the third Lock. Put it in place and a
door will open, giving you access to a Teleporter. Teleport on it and you
will arrive by a Beam Transformer puzzle. Solve it and you gain access to a
stash containing three plasma orbs, and also a drill. Teleport back (you can
use the Plasma Orbs to kill the Fumblebees if you want) then do just a
little more searching until you find Machine Piece #8 encircled by rock.
Drill through the rock and grab the piece!
Puzzles: Pattern Minefield, Toggle Network, Fuse Box, Beam Transformer,
Enemies: Rock Monster
Walkthrough: Start by grabbing the Primitive Weapons from the nearby stash.
They aren't very useful, but you can defeat one Rock Monster with them. (A
quick note: this level is full of Rock Monsters). Look around and you'll
find three puzzles: a Pattern Minefield, a Toggle Network and a Fuse Box.
For each puzzle you solve you'll get a Relic. Trade the relics to the mole
near that start for a Rock Monster Disguise. There's no particular time you
need to use it, in fact I've done the level several times without it. Once
you have the disguise, look for the cave with the worms. Collect all 4, then
look for the nearby Beam Transformer puzzle. Solve it, then go through.
Collect all the fish, then go back to the main cave and do the Pattern
Bridge puzzle. (I recommend that you use your disguise now, if you got it.)
On the other side are a lot of Rock Monsters and a lever. Flip the lever and
a door will open, giving you access to Machine Piece #9.
Puzzles: Symbol Reflex, Wheel Lock, Toggle Network, Fuse Box, Water Pipes
Enemies: Fungus, Bat, Root, Eye Bot
Walkthrough: Drop down the hatch which is right next to you at the start.
Solve the Symbol Reflex puzzle. When you solve it, a stash opens, containing
3 Primitive Weapons, 2 Power Charges and a Robot Vest. Also, talk to the
nearby mole and click 'one of these' to get another Primitive Weapon. Now go
back up, and use a Power Charge to cross to the only open hatch in the
fungus. Drop down, and you'll see a Wheel Lock puzzle. Solve it, and three
bats will be unleashed. Beat them with primitve weapons and pick up all the
boomerangs (you need them all on this level). Now go back up to the fungus.
Flip all three levers in the small outpost using your boomerangs, then drop
in the hatch nearest the one you last went in. Solve the Toggle Network,
then go through the door and you'll see the Roots and an Eye Bot. Ignore the
Roots (they're killing the Eye Bot) and ignore the Eye Bot (it's getting
killed by the roots) and grab the four Fuse Box pieces. Now return to the
main cave, and go in the hatch north of you. Solve the Fuse Box puzzle, then
the nearby stash will open. Grab the 6 Dynamite from inside, then return to
the main cave and drop into the only hatch that you haven't been in yet.
Here, solve the Water Pipes puzzle. After you solve it, the door will open
and you can go through. Here there are Eye Bots. They won't bother you:
they're too busy enslaving the moles. Use your Dynamite to blast through the
stalagmites to Machine Piece #10.
Puzzles: Wheel Lock, Toggle Network, Water Pipes, Pattern Bridge, Fuse Box
Enemies: Snapdragon, Mutan, Quiz Bot, Sentry Bot
Walkthrough: First, head into the trees, picking up a Snapdragon Seed on
your way. Here you'll find Spiky Pears, Brain Fruit, and Grass Bugs
everywhere. Use Grass Bugs to kill two nearby Snapdragons, and head past it
for even more rewards. Now head into the Pollution. In the Pollution, you'll
find 3 puzzles: A Wheel Lock, a Toggle Network and a Water Pipes. For each
puzzle you solve you get some Bridge Pieces. When you solve all the puzzles,
go to the other side of the level where there is an Outpost. Here, there are
two Pattern Bridge. Finish the main one, then go on a platform that connects
to the main one and solve the secondary one. Cross the secondary one, and
answer the Quiz Bot if it quizzes you. At the end of the Quiz Bot's area
you'll find an open stash containing 4 Quiz Bot disguises. Grab as many as
you can fit in your inventory, then go back and cross the main bridge. Here,
Sentry Bots guard the path. Put on a Quiz Bot disguise and go past them.
Pick up the Fuse Box pieces and solve the Fuse Box puzzle. A door will now
open at the other end of the room. Go through it. Answer the Quiz Bot if it
quizzes you, (or you can disguise yourself so that it won't quiz you,) and
step on the teleporter to Level 14.
Puzzles: Toggle Network, Pattern Minefield, Affinity Network, Symbol Reflex,
Enemies: Quiz Bot, Sentry Bot, Guard Bot, Eye Bot
Walkthrough: First, go south and solve the Toggle Network puzzle. This will
open a stash containing 6 plasma orbs. Save them for the tough Guard Bot at
the end. Now go back to the teleporter. It doesn't work, so head east and
cross the Pattern Minefield. Next, go past the Quiz Bot and down to the
Affinity Network puzzle. Solving it will allow to enter a room with 2 bridge
pieces and 2 stashes containing 2 Robot Vests and 3 Giant Magnets. Next,
head straight past the Quiz Bot and solve the Symbol Reflex puzzle. On the
other side of the door that solving the puzzle opens is a room that contains
a stash with 5 Plasma orbs and 3 bridge pieces. If you run out of room in
your inventory you can lay down 2 Giant Magnets - you only need one. Don't
bother with the hatches in either of these areas: they both lead down to a
room full of Sentry Bots. Next, head east past the Quiz Bot and solve the
Pattern Bridge puzzle. Past this puzzle is a Guard Bot: you need ALL your
Plasma Orbs to kill him. Now use the giant magnet to flip the lever behind
the wall. This lever will turn on the teleporter where the Guard Bot was.
Step on this teleporter and you're onto Level 15 - the Main Robot Fortress!
Puzzles: Wheel Lock, Toggle Network, Fuse Box, Pattern Minefield, Water
Pipes, Pattern Bridge
Enemies: Eye Bot, Quiz Bot, Sentry Bot, Tread Bot, Guard Bot.
Walkthrough: Wow! You made it to the last level - the Main Robot Fortress.
This level is pretty long and REALLY complicated, and I'll do the best I can
to explain. Just something before we begin, however - in this level are four
switches needed to open the doors blocking the way to the machine. When
referring to these, I'll call them Anti-Defence switches.
Okay. Let's begin:
You'll appear in a room with two doorways. The left one has nothing behind
it, so go through the right one. You'll come to a lever. Flipping it gives
you access to three stashes, which contain a Freeze Ray Gun, a Robot Vest,
and two Plasma Staffs. Go back up past the lever and you'll come to an Eye
Bot: kill it with your Plasma Staffs (oh, just thought you should know: this
level is swarming with robots). Now you'll come to a Quiz Bot. Go past him,
as there's 4 Bridge Pieces and 2 Fuse Box Pieces behind him. Collect all the
bridge pieces and Fuse Box pieces, and head up the nearby passage. You'll
come to a Wheel Lock puzzle. Solving it will allow you to pass the double
doors. Before you go through, however, pick up the nearby Fuse Box piece.
Past the double doors is the final Fuse Box piece. Head east and you'll come
to a room full of bridge pieces. Pick 'em all up, then head back and go the
other way. You'll discover two stashes - one containing 4 Plasma Orbs, the
other containing a Robot Vest (trade it for your old one which should be
quite worn out by now). Then return to the room you were just in and kill
the Eye Bot with the Plasma Orbs. Next, go past and you'll see - MORE bridge
pieces! Pick as many up as you can fit in your inventory, then solve the
Toggle Netwotrk to open the triple doors. Behind the doors you'll find a
Fuse Box puzzle. Solve it. Two sets of doors will be opened now: one to the
east and one to the south. Go through the east one first and hit the
Anti-Defence switch, then pick up the bridge pieces. Now go through the
south door. You'll come to a drainbrain waiting room full of Botans and
Moles. You can't talk to any of them so proceed through the room. Then
you'll come to the drainbrain room. Freeze the Eye Bot here, flip the lever
and leave . Also in the drainbrain room are brain orbs: pick up as many as
you can. Once outsde the drainbrain room, go up past the Pattern Minefield.
You should really only go on it to regain brainpower (if you need to) as all
it leads to is a stash containing a Brain Shield, which you don't need.
After the Minefield, go down past the Sentry Bots and flip the lever to open
the double doors. Here there is a huge line of Eye Bots who will
occasionally zap you. Pick up all the Plasma Staffs lying around. Then, hit
the power switch. This will open the double doors and allow you to exit. Go
through the room, noting the Water Pipes. Go up the bridge (not a Pattern
Bridge) and kill the Quiz Bot at the end. Behind him is an Anti-Defence
switch: flip it. Notice the bridge is shaped like an M: Go down the middle
part (the part you haven't been down yet) and you'll see a Water Pipes
puzzle. Go and get the pipes in the room you were in, and put them in place.
Next, go through the double doors that solving the puzzle opens. You'll come
to a Beam Transformer puzzle. Before solving it, pick up a nearby Plasma
Staff. Then, solve the puzzle. You'll enter an area with a Tread Bot: kill
the Tread Bot with your Plasma Staffs. Then go up. Freeze the Eye Bot and
hit the switch. Freeze the Guard Bot behind the door. You'll now come to a
huge Pattern Bridge. You must build the bridge in three directions: to the
left and right to hit the last two Anti-Defence switches, and forward to
reach the double doors. To open the double doors you must hit all the
Anti-Defence switches. Once the double doors are open, go through to find
Machine Piece #11, and the IDTM itself! Congratulations! You finished the
A group of Eye Bots tries to stop you as you hop in the now-rebuilt IDTM and
hit the activator button to return to Earth...
Back in Dr. Brain's laboratory, Dr. Brain promises as he puts away your
jumpsuit that next time, he'll test the equipment. The camera pans over to
the IDTM (still in flames from its interdimensional journey) and you see
three Eye Bots pop op, their eyes glaring menacingly...
As the game leaves you on such a cliffhanger, who knows? Maybe there'll be
I.Q Adventure 2. Anyway, the walkthrough for this game is over now.
