Now that Holmes and Watson have set off an explosion in Lord Montcalfe's mansion, they must go back through the ruined building to find the remaining pieces of the puzzle. Oh, it's probably wise to mention that a lot of this part is timed, too.

    In the Destroyed Treasure Room

    It looks like Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson have completed found all the clues they can about the Mystery of the Mummy in Lord Montcalfe's wine cellar. The player may think that he does not face any more time enigmas and that he is finished with the cellar. Strangely enough, he will find Sherlock in a rather demolished looking version of the room he just left.

    Save the game. Get ready to solve another puzzle. See the buckets of the cask? Pick them up. This normally mundane task reveals the presence of a poisonous scorpion. Select a bucket from the inventory and cover the scorpion. Move to the door. Turn around to find the chess puzzle. Click on it. Look down and find another scorpion. Place the second bucket it over it. Pick up a wooden plank and then find a bag on the floor. Pick up the bag belonging to the late Parkey and go back through the rotating room. Before exiting the rotating room look out of the door. Go out of the door in a manner that does not cause. Remember the wooden plank you picked up? Put it down here and create a bridge to walk across.

    Go forward and click on the statue in the corner of the room. Get the chain and the middle gear wheel from the statue. Go back across the plank bridge you created and use the chain on and the gear in the rotating room. Locate the niche in this room and click on it. Holmes and Watson operate the mechanism that allows you to enter the now destroyed wine cellar.

    Follow the Path of Devastation into the Reception Hall

    Sherlock Holmes reads a newspaper   The theme of destruction continues in this room. In fact, this is the same room through which you entered the museum. The explosion you triggered seems to have gone through the whole house. There are a few things you need in this room, although you should use the lighted candle in the room to light your lantern. Look around and find a note that suggest you go upstairs.

    There is a warning about a lurking mummy, but after facing down the Cthulhu cult, a mummy is not likely to scare Doctor Watson or the great detective. Head on over to the stairs, but look around the first step before proceeding. Someone has gone through a great deal of trouble to make sure you find a lot of sand. Pick up the hair pin. Strangely, the hairpin seems to be a recent edition to the mansion.

    The Devastated Reception Hall -- Continued

    Go back into the reception hall and find the mirrored cabinet. Use the hairpin on it and discover a “dirty paper." Ascend the stairs and click on a broken lamp. The lamp moves aside and you must solve yet another puzzle.

    This puzzle is relatively simple. The bast tactic is not to move while trying to solve it as moving too far out of the room makes you start the puzzle all over again.

    Put all three levers all the way down

    Keep the first and third lever in the down position, put the middle lever all the way up

    Put the first and third levers in the middle position.

    Saving the game at this point is not a bad idea. When you solve the puzzle. Leave the puzzle and go up the steps and into a hallway that badly needs the services of a contractor and a professional fire cleaners.

    The Burning Second Floor

    Sherlock Holmes and Dr, Watso n solve a case   Turn to the right on the door and click on the painting. Avoid any burning objects. Find an encrypted message on the back of the painting. It reads: XLDU OLIC UFFU WIYT INO. Look at the rows of ankh symbols underneath. The first row has three ankhs than two sets of four ankhs. The second row is arranged in a 2-3-3 pattern. Take note of this pattern for now.

    Go forward and find another destroyed painting. The message on this painting says “Egypt will Help You." Explore the hallway and click on the fallen wall. Sherlock reveals that the damage that the explosion where Johnathan Parkey was killed did not cause the damage here. Find a broken mirror somewhere in the smoldering ruins.

    The end of the hall contains yet another ruined painting. Click on it and find another message. There are more ankh patterns here. Make a note of them as the provide a clue or ignore them as the clue answer to the next puzzle will be provided shortly. The Encrypted message reads: UTLNLH NHITAI DEGHCN ERIEEE REOPSS.

    This is another good place to save your game. Do so and enter the smoky parlor. Go into the room and cut the curtains by the bedroom. This will help extend the time you can stay in the rooms where the oxygen supply is dwindling. (Use the broken bottle to do this.) Go back out into a clear room and get more air. Enter the parlor again and click on the shield above the sofa. Enter the lines in this order

    The Religion

    This Place Shines

    Exit the puzzle and note that the room now has an open window. Click on it. Pick up the spear head from the lion's head near the Montcalfe family portrait. Find a nearby alcove and pick up the following items: three weights, a small key, and a letter. Go back out into the hallway. Breathe in some clear air. Go down the hallway and open the middle door on the ride side of the hall. It might be a good idea to save the game before entering this room.

    The Bomb Puzzle

    another Sherlock Holmes drawing   This part of the game ends with Sherlock Holmes assembling a bomb. Find the clock in the room. The middle gear wheel you found earlier gets placed in the clock. Place the three weights on the hooks on the clock's bottom. The weights must be placed in the order of gold, blue, and silver. Use the gold key to set the timer.

    Congratulations, you now have a bomb. Take the gunpowder from your inventory and place it near the door. Place the lantern underneath it. Stand back and watch Sherlock blow open a new door in the mansion, although Lord Montcalfe really wishes that he had not done so.

    You've opened the door. Go solve the mystery.
