If you haven’t played this game yet, I highly recommend you to do so now. Below are the walkthroughs for level 1 to 10 for you to start playing with, and to discover the fun in finding clues!
This is the easiest level. Adjust (probably you don’t have to do this) the bright and contrast level of your monitor and you’ll see the words “Enter the door”. So, just click on the door!
Here you’ll see a closed door. Move your mouse over the door knob, and you’ll see a dialog box telling you “The door is closed. Trick it or reach level 3 in a different way! (address?)”. I’m not sure about the tricking the door part though, but the word “address” is a hint to tell you that you need to change the address in the address bar (a hand arrow points up to indicate the address bar). So, just change the address from level2.htm to level3.htm. Easy?
The bricks doesn’t help in solving the riddle. However, it you wait for a while, you’ll see a sentence flashing quickly. It says “stop being so negatived”. Look at the address bar again, the current address is http://www.deathball.net/notpron/false/gototheothersite.htm. So, to be positive, we change the word “false” to “true”. Solved.
The title says “look in the dark”. So it has something to do with the lamp. Beneath it you’ll see some codes. They are morse codes. This page has a complete list of morse codes. Translate it, and you’ll get “voodoo power”. Click on the clock and type in “voodoo” as the username and “power” as the password.
There is a CD of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy on the table. Beneath the picture lies a sentence, “eyes like an angel smiles like a devil. What was the name of this song again?”. Erm .. could it be part of a lyric or something? Google it, and you’ll find the lyrics of the song “Simple Songs”, by Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. So the username is “simple”, and the password is “songs”.
This is a little tricky. The title says “the souce code might help”, so we view the source and see what we can find. We’ll find an IFRAME inside, which leads us to a file with nothing. Press CTRL+A to sell all, and you will see the following number combinations:
108 105 108 107 117 111 114 104
The source code also says ASCII is an alternative. You may now refer to ASCII table to look up the codes, and you will get
l i l k u o r h
Remember it says “an ALTernative”? So, try to rearrange the letters, and you’ll find the words that make sense: kill hour. Use them as username and password.
This is tricky. Again, we look at the source code. We will find two interesting lines that say “times have changed in deutschland” and “what candy wrapper is it?”. Besides, the title says “he went to the old school”. Combining these two hints and the picture of Twix, it means you need to find the old name for Twix. Google it, and you’ll find Raider (here).
So where do you key in the password? Look at the address bar, the address looks funny (notpron/sdrawkcab/tieman.htm). And if you read it backwards, it says nameit/backwards! So, reverse the sequence of raider so it becomes rediar, and replace tieman in the address.
(I cheated on this level, because I have never seen Twix before .. and I don’t think it’s ever been sold here before)
This is also tricky. First, click on the guitar, that’s the entrance to level 9. The realm for the password protected page is “mom, he formated my second song”. Remember that, then go back to level 8 (because we don’t have a password to next level yet). View the source code, and you’ll a wrongly spelled HTML tag to include background sound:
You won’t be able to play that mp3 (because it has been formatted, remember?) Back to the source code, the line after the location of the second song says “water became wine”. It means, something needs to change.
The extension! Change the file extension from mp3 to jpg, view it, and it tells the username and password to the next level. U: inverted, P: levelten.
This is surprisingly easy. Again, the secret lies within the source code. See many SPANs there? Take out those with the “not” class, and you’ll get:
Yeah, they are the username and the password.
This is superb! Turn on your speaker, and you’ll hear some “satan” sounds. Open up the source code, get the location of the sond, and download it to your computer. Two lines in the source code should catch your attention: “quick quick, don’t let me wait” and “%SystemRoot%\System32\sndrec32.exe can capture what u hear”. The latter means Sound Recorder in Windows. So, it tells you to play it in Sound Recorder.
You can’t play it just yet, because Windows Sound Recorder doesn’t natively support MP3. Convert it to a wave file first (you can use iTunes to do it too). Now, the statement “quick quick, don’t let me wait” hints that you need to increas the speed of the wave file. Do it three times, and you’ll listen something interesting. It sounds like “for real”. However, they are not the username and password (I was tricked). Reverse the sound, and you will hearly clearly “gray world”. Yeah, the username is “gray”, and the password is “world”.
