Puzzle 11: The Inventor
Image 1: Just move the lightning bolt over the bulbs to bring them to life.
Image 2: Highlight the area just at the base of the tower, between the two windows, to find this hidden image.
Image 3: Move the pointer onto Teslas lap.
Puzzle 12: Titans of Industry
Code wheel puzzle 1: The key here is in the 4=1 on the blueprint at the left of the screen. Line up the red 4 over the gray 1 and input the following code:
Image 1: This ones the opposite of the light-bulb puzzle from before just move the dollar sign over the bulbs to extinguish them.
Image 2: Highlight the glowing ball at the center of the image.
Code wheel puzzle 2: Your hints here are the 2 on the old car, and the symbol just below the newspapers headline. From there, you need to figure out the numeric progression of the symbols to understand which ones are missing.
But if youre impatient, then just input the code as follows:
Puzzle 13: I Am Become Death, the Destroyer of Worlds
Code wheel puzzle: This ones even trickier than the last one; starting with the hint that 9 (next to the tower) equals triangle (up and to the left from the bomb), you need to figure out which symbols would fill in the blank spots on the wheel, going by the symbols next to them. Or you can just input the following code:
Image 1: Just hit the button. Its not hard.
Image 2: Use the Geiger-counter clicks to guide you to the space shown below:
Puzzle 14: Bloodlines
Set 1: Highlight the images that depict women and gods in amorous entanglements (especially if those gods are disguised as animals).
Puzzle 15: Guardians
Puzzle wheel: Seemingly every other ring is linked here, so well cut straight to the chase: Turn the third (and fourth) rings right twice, the fifth (and first) right four times, the fourth (and first) right five times, the fifth (and first) left five times and the second left five times. Finally, move the fifth (and second) rings right five times.
Image: Another gimme just move the Assassin logo over the targets to complete the puzzle.
Puzzle 16: The Cavalry
Image 1: Just move the cursor to the word Tunguska.
Image 2: Move the cursor onto the staff and drag it onto Teslas photo.
Puzzle 17: The Bunker
Code wheel puzzle: Heres a tricky one; your clues are < and 2, and the only advice youll get from your handlers is that maybe theres something we can count on the strange symbols. In this case that something is the number of times each symbol bends sharply. Dont expect consistency across the wheel on this one; just take a look at what symbols flank the blank spaces and pick a shape with the number of bends that would go between them. Or, for the impatient:
Image: Find the Assassin symbol at the upper-right of the bunker as shown here:
Puzzle 18: Synapses
Code wheel puzzle: This puzzle, for lack of better words, is a bitch from hell. Your first clue is to line up 5 with a single tree-looking symbol, but from there it gets tricky. The key here is the weird-looking equation on the left, which offers a hint as to the progression of the symbols.
Stare at this long enough to get some advice, and youll be told that the trees are Sumerian numerals that represent one, while the < symbols represent 10. Now, to make another cognitive leap, youll notice that the first few symbols on the code wheel follow a seemingly nonsensical progression: one, three, nine, 11, 12.
Now, look at the equation again. Add up its numbers two at a time, and youll see that they follow that same progression: 1+2=3, 3+6=9, 9+2=11, 11+1=12, and so on. Once you know that, the rest is easy.
Or you can just look at this image and spoil the solution for yourself:
Image: In whats sure to be a relief after the last puzzle, all you need to do here is move the cursor to light up the neurotransmitters.
Puzzle 19: The Fourth Day
Image set: What used to be worshipped by every primitive culture under the
? Thats right, the sun. Pick the five images that focus on it.
Image: Find the tiny image of Earth in the lower-left quadrant of the sun.
Puzzle 20: The Origin of the Species
Puzzle wheel: Oh hey, another ring puzzle. At least this ones the last. Start by turning the fifth ring right ten times, then turn the fourth ring left twice. Then rotate the third (and first) rings right twice, the second ring right five times and the first ring left three times.
Image 1: Its pretty smooth sailing from here. Highlight the eye at the top of the painting.
Code wheel puzzle: You can be forgiven for panicking at the sight of this one, but relax. Ignore the numbers and focus on the Assassin motto: Nothing is true, everything is permitted. With that in mind, pick any three glyphs and call this puzzle solved.
Image 2: Move the cursor over the bones to reshape the skeleton.
And thats it! Now all thats left to do is to sit back as the confusing video clips youve collected come together, enabling you to finally see what the game has been teasing you with this whole time.
