Black Mirror III - Walkthrough
You’re in another hypnotherapy session. You and Angelina as kids again. You climbed in the crevice to help Angelina. There was a large room down there and a mirror. The doctor tries to explain it away, but you are sure it is a real memory. The constable calls and tells you that Spooner is waiting for you in the cafe. Go outside from the doctor’s office and go across the bridge into town. Use the fortune teller’s card on the telephone to call her again. Head into the cafe and talk to Spooner. Adrian cannot remember being punched in the face by Tom. Spooner tells Adrian what happened: he followed Adrian back to the castle because he thought he may collapse at any moment. Spooner is getting suspicious of Tom’s reaction and wants to know who this Phil is. Apparently, Tom told Spooner that Adrian had murdered him. Spooner is beginning to realise there is more truth to Adrian’s story than he first believed. Adrian explains that Phil kidnapped him and kept him for days in this house, and all he did was knock him out and leave him in the morgue. He was alive when Adrian left. Spooner and Adrian both go the house together.
The front door is locked and Spooner cannot enter without a search warrant. But this rule applies only to Spooner. Use Phil’s keyring on the door. Adrian goes to get the torture videos for Spooner and discovers that they are gone! But the one video that Adrian watched is still in the video recorder. Spooner takes the tape as evidence. Now, where’s the corpse? That has disappeared, too. It must have been Tom. Adrian shows Spooner the other corpse in the chilled compartment. Tom then appears and Spooner takes off after him. Adrian heads off to the stone circle.
STONE CIRCLE IN WOODS
Look at the big rock and you will go down the steps automatically. Look at the chasm below and the roots above. It’s the same kind of portal that was at the academy.
BLACK MIRROR CASTLE
Go to the backyard and pick up the folding ladder lying against the wall; you will automatically return to the stone circle cave.
STONE CIRCLE IN WOODS
Go over the chasm and look at portal, black ball holder (it’s the same one that Angelina placed a black ball in that opened the portal) and stone tablet. Use your camera to get a picture of the hieroglyphs on the stone tablet.
Go to Dr Winterbottom’s office and talk to her to receive a hieroglyph book. Look at the book, then use it with your picture. Leave the office and go next door into the museum. Look at the flyers in the stand on the desk to see they were prepared by Edward. Next head into the cafe and talk to Edward. Talk to him about the hieroglyphs and he’ll tell you he’s seen this script before – it’s druid. It’s a pictorial story of a burial ritual of a priest. He wouldn’t exclude the possibility that more of the black balls are somewhere – probably in a burial mound. Now he remembers where he saw the hieroglyphs: in a newspaper article. A group of archaeologists discovered a burial mound recently – Miss Valley was part of the group. Edward then asks Adrian for a job – as a butler. Now go to the police station and talk to Spooner, then talk to Zak; Tom has vanished into the woods. Spooner seems to be mellowing: he wants to close this case and he wants your help. He will allow you to look around Miss Valley’s apartment. Search the bookcase to find a folder. Look at the desk, then at the notepad on the floor to get a piece of paper, then look at this in your inventory. Get some coal from the fireplace and use this on the piece of paper in your inventory. It’s some kind of letter Miss Valley wrote to disband the Order. Adrian can’t find a black ball. Good! Maybe nobody else found it either. Now look at the folder you found; you need to underline 3 phrases to help locate the burial mound: “sector 13”, “animal bones” and “marsh land” (the game seems to have trouble accepting sector 13 so you may need to skip this puzzle). Talk to Zak to leave the apartment. But first, Zak tells you to return the folder.
Look at the pile of stones and read the letter you find: with your name on it. ” Hope is the guardian’s second virtue. It nourishes the wise, but it fools the measured, who mindlessly rest on its promises.” Look at the animal bone on the right again, then continue right to find a menhir and a burial mound. Look at both, then take some dry branches from near the entrance. Look at the circle marked on the wall and the hieroglyphs on the ceiling, then go inside. Look at everything here, until you suggest stopping your medications to have a vision. The only problem is, on the medication description it says it could take a few weeks for the medication to stop working. You have to find a way to speed this up.
Enter Dr Winterbottom’s office again and ask her about the medicine. “My meds are not working. Could it be that I’ve eaten something that is reducing its effect?” Tea? No. Antacid? No. I need to avoid too much coffee, too. Now cross the bridge and buy some antacid from Abaya in the old fashioned shop (this shop is far too healthy), and some coffee from Edward in the cafe.
BLACK MIRROR CASTLE
Enter the greenhouse out the back and pick up the Valerian plant from the ground on the left. Now enter the kitchen inside the castle and pick up the pot from the stove (you will automatically fill it with water) to make some coffee. Head out to the main hall and pick up the damp-proof sheeting from the floor near the back.
Go right and enter the burial mound again. Use the small stones on the ground to make a hearth, then add your dry twigs and use your lighter to start a fire. Put your pot of water on the fire, then add the valerian plant to the fire (not the pot), but the smoke blows outside. Go outside and use your sheeting on the entrance, then go back inside again. Use your valerian plant on the fire again to make a lot of smoke. “I’m gonna stink like a kipper when I get out of there”. Add the antacid and coffee to the pot to see another vision. Look at the black mould on the left wall and you will take the black ball.
STONE CIRCLE IN WOODS
Go down the hole and over the chasm to the holder on the right. Put the black ball in the holder, then look at the portal before going through.
Look around the chamber, then search Luis’ body to get a letter. The letter is from Angelina to Luis. Instructions on setting Black Mirror on fire and luring Adrian, alive, to the academy. This is what Adrian needs to show his innocence, that he did not set the fire. However, it will also reveal the awful curse of the Gordons if Spooner were to see this. Look at the rocks near the bottom of the area, and search the rocks again to see a piece of cloth. Use the camera on the gap between the rocks and you will get a picture of another black ball. Search Luis’ body again to take his arm, grisly, and use the arm on one of the gaps. Search the other gap to get the black ball. Use this in the holder, then go through the portal.
Look at the skull wall and the black ball in the holder on the left, then pick up the book twice.
