Arrow Cursor To control your character in this game, you need to move the arrow cursor different directions, and click on a destination, door, or object you want to move to. It is a little annpoying at first, but you will get used to it, and you won't notice it as much. Think of it as a computer mouse cursor, that's all there is to it. Have any problems with it, or the game? You can e-mail me at the e-mail address above. I would be glad to help. 3. Targets During the game, you will come across "Targets" where you will have to choose either "Yes" or "No" and depending on that decision, the game will lead off in different endings. Have fun expiermenting with them, and make sure you choose the correct one, and know what your doing, or else you might end up with the worse ending, make sure you pay attention to what's going on, and what you did earlier in the game. 4. Escape Mode You will need to escape from Scissor Man at times if he has you in a bind. Simply press the SQUARE button repeatedly. If you are under the "red" cursor, your character will be killed automatically. Make sure their fear isn't very high or else they are weakened. WHITE - Normal ORANGE - Warning RED - Danger! 5. Walkthrough Here is the actual walkthrough, starting from the beginning. PROLOGUE - Samuel Barton You start off in the Therapy Room, watch the conversation, and investigate the room. Look at the pair of scissors on the desk, and the bed that Jennifer was resting on. Then, leave the room. You are now in his laboratory, talk to the two staff members, Beth and Danny inside here. If you want to control Jennifer next, talk to the staff members twice or more to control her later. If you want to control Helen, then talk to each of the staff once. Investigate the room, also, like the purple statue, some desks, and the mask. If you don't, it will say "There is something I need to do in here," when you attempt to open the door. Investigate the whole room, and then leave. Talk to Harris, the man out in the hallway twice so you can control Jennifer later, if you want. You can just ignore him, and you will control Helen later. Continue in the elevator and go to the 1st floor. As soon as you exit the elevator, a reporter, Nolan Simpson will interview you. Samuel doesn't have much to say. After the interview is over, go back in the elevator to floor 2. Go back in your laboratory, and talk to Harris in here. Then, look at the statue again. Samuel needs to get an expert opinion on this, and you can have Harris take it to Rick to look at it, or take it to Mr. Sullivan at the library, your choice. After that, go in the therapy room to talk to one of the other survivors of the Clock Tower murders, a boy named Edward. Once inside, talk to them, and the scene will fade. You can save your progress. Depending on talking to the staff members once, or twice, or more, you will control either Jennifer, or Helen. Once you are in control of the map and where you want to go. Here are the destinations you need to go to for each character: Jennifer: Library University Hotel Back to your house Jennifer will notice someone is at her house, it's Nolan, talk to him and he will take you out for dinner. After that, you control. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ SCENARIO 1 - Jennifer Simpson Jennifer realizes someone is following her, she will walk and you can bang on the shop nearby or just let her walk to the opening way to the University. When you get there, a Guard will notice you, and ask what's wrong. You tell him someone is following you, and Scissor Man is introduced. He gives the Guard a stab, and Jennifer runs inside. You now control. Scissor Man is after you! Run to the stairs or the elevator, and go to the second floor. Explore all the rooms up here, but most importantly, the door on the far right. You will be in a small room with a sofa and a plant. Proceed into the next room. The fax machine will ring and the note says "Get ready! I'm comin' to get ya!" No doubt it's the Scissor Man. You can attempt to call Helen on the phone, but she isn't home. Nothing else to do here. Leave and go to the elevator or stairs, and go to the first floor. Sometimes, Scissor Man will come out of the elevator, if he does, just run to the stairs immidetely. Once your on the first floor, go in the door on the right with the window beside it. Once your inside, you can attempt to try and talk to the guard sitting in the chair, and his head falls off when you shake him. Grab the key from the table "Ladder Key." Now, if you aren't worried about the hints, you can leave now. Go to the stairs and head all the way up. Use the arrow cursor and move it all the way up to the screen to choose the "Ladder Key" and unlock the fire escape. Jennifer climbs down, and leaves. You can save your progress. Also, the hints, they aren't that important, they just give you hints about the game, like what to do in a bad situation, I will explain all that here, so you don't need to worry about them. Helen: Police Station Hotel Library Back to the University When Helen gets back, she decides to take a nap in the lounge. When you are there, you control. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ SCENARIO 1 - Helen Maxwell Once your inside the lounge, talk to Rose that is lying on the bunk bed a few times. Then, go take a nap on the neighboring bunk bed. Rose will ask you to turn off the light. The light switch is beside the door, once it is off, go to the bunk. Helen will climb to the top and fall asleep. A noise at the door wakes her up, click on the door, and Helen will walk over and peek through the hole. A worker is standing there, she slowly opens the door and he limps inside and falls. Scissor Man is introduced. Helen will run to the back and dodge him and escape the room. Now, you need to run! You can grab the fire extinguiser close by, and use it as a weapon to drop Scissor Man. Don't cheer yet, he'll be back! Exit and head for the door on the far right in the next hallway, it has a window beside it. Once your inside, proceed into the next room. This room is empty, beside a key on the desk. You now have the "Storage Key" which is the ticket to get out of this place. All you need now is the "Pliers." Head to the elevator, or the stairs, and go to the third floor. Once your there, head to the room on the far right, and enter. You are now in a Computer Lab. Scissor Man might be in here, and if he is, exit the elevator, and come back and he will be gone. If he isn't there, go over to the computer by the window. There are tools on the desk, one of them are a pair of "pliers." Alright! Head to the first floor. Once your there, head left, and you will see two doors right next to each other. Head in the one on the right. Scissor Man could be in here, so you can use the elevator as an escape and come back. If he isn't, use the "Pliers" to break the wire. After that, use the key, and escape! (NOTE: You can pick up the flashlight in the room with the fax machine with the phone where you called the police. The flashlight is in the locker in the far right. You can use the flashlight later in the game. It is a very important item!) You can save your progress. After that, a scene comes up. Whether you are Jennifer or Helen, the same scene comes. But the conversation on both of them are a little differnet. When you are back in control as either character, here are the locations of where to go as each one: Jennifer: Newspaper Office (Nolan is not there, his camera man is.) Police Station University Back to the Newspaper Office When you are back at the Newspaper Office, Nolan is back and talk to him. You will be deciding another decision. Nolan asks if he should go to Rick's and see if he has the statue. When you were Samuel, you chose whether or not to show it to Mr. Sullivan at the library, or Rick, the old butler of the Barrow's Family. If you did tell Harris to give it to Rick, I would have Nolan go to Rick's to obtain it. Once you do, you will now be controlling Nolan next. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ SCENARIO 2 - Nolan Simpson You are interviewing Rick and after the long conversation, you both walk over to the chandelier. It falls and kills Rick. Scissor Man is now after Nolan. Escape to the upper door on the right and you will be inside the kitchen. Hide in the pantry (on the ground) and Scissor Man will be confused, and will leave. Nolan will exit the pantry, and this will give you time to look around. Look at the mask on the wall, and the chair, mask, and other objects start to fly around. Quickly grab the vase on the table and choose to throw it at the mask. It will fall, and then, leave the room. Go in the room on the very left and go inside. This room leads to two other doorways. Go inside the one on the right. Turn on the light inside, and look at the cabinet to your right (Nolan's left.) Grab the "Powder Soap" and leave the room. Now, go to the room where Rick was killed. Go in the room on the far right, and enter. Scissor Man might jump down from the ledge, if he does, Nolan will run upstairs. If Scissor Man doesn't come after you, continue upstairs anyway. Go in the room right next door. If Scissor Man is after you, use the blanket on the bed to throw it at him, you can also hide in the cabinet. Leave the room now. Head into the room at the end of the hallway. Once inside, invesigate the room. To see something cool, go outside in porch, and come back inside. You will see a scene where Scissor Man is rocking in the rocking chair watching cartoons, laughing. Who do you think this Scissor Man is? Nolan shrieks and exits the room. Scissor Man is after you. You can escape in the bedroom and hide in the cabinet, when its safe, go downstairs where Rick was killed. Open the screen door by the furniture, and go outside. Use the "Powder Soap" on the dog to escape, and your done! Helen: Library (Mr. Sullivan is not there, he will return later.) Police Station Your House (Jennifer is not there.) Hotel Back to the Library When you are back at the Library, go to Mr. Sullivan's office. (If you chose to show the statue to Mr. Sullivan as Samuel, then you will obtain the statue as Helen in this building. If you chose to give it to Rick, then you will obtain the statue as Gotts later.) Mr. Sullivan's office is through the glass door, and the next following door, and next to the stairs. But before you do that, you will see Edward in the Main Library, talk to him, then go to Mr. Sullivan. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ SCENARIO 2 - Edward Once you are inside Mr. Sullivan's office, talk to him, and he will give you the "Reading Room Key" which is right next door. After you talk to him, exit, and go next door. Climb the stairs to the top books and Helen will find the book she is looking for, she want some information about Scissor Man. You need to invesigate the room first before Helen climbs the stairs. After reading for a little bit, the librarian comes in and tells you that the library is locking up soon. Exit the room, and the clocks starts to chime. Mr. Sullivan comes out of his office, and you go with him to fix the clock upstairs. Once you in there, Mr. Sullivan's head gets stuck in the hole of the clock, and the hand of the clock tears his head off, and Scissor Man returns. Exit the room, and proceed down the stairs. Head back to the front of the library (near the entrance) and hide behind the desk. Scissor Man can't find Helen, and you are now safe from him...For now... Now, go into the door behind the reception desk. The chair will move once your inside. Go check it out, and you find it's Edward, hiding. Helen takes Edward up to the Reading Room so he can hide. The police are here, and the sirens are going off, but they can't get in. Head in the back room behind the reception desk to get the "Screwdriver" from the table and now, go back to Edward. Use the "Screwdriver" and un-screw the bolts, and Edward will escape. Head to Mr. Sullivan's office. Once your inside, search the desk to find the key that goes to his display room. Unlock the door in his office, and proceed inside. It's dark, so light the room up with the aquarium light. The statue! It's sitting on the table, grab it, and investigate. If you explore the big figure on the desk in the back of the room, you realize your aren't alone... Go to the Main Library, and Gotts will break in, and rescue Helen... If you got the statue, you have more of the game left. If you didn't retrieve the statue, your game is over, and you will receive a "E" ending. If you picked the statue up, you will be heading to the mansion later in Barrow's Castle. Also, if you need to retrieve the statue from Rick, and you are playing as Helen, you are going to play as Gotts pretty quick to get it from him. Here is your walkthrough for Gotts part at Rick's House: ------------------------------------------------------------------------ SCENARIO 2 - Gotts (Game for when you need to retrieve the statue as Gotts when you are Helen.) You are talking to Rick and after the long conversation, and his dog starts barking. Rick checks what is happening, and his dog attacks him and kills him. Scissor Man is now in the room, after Gotts. Head into the kitchen in the upper right wall. Hide in the pantry (on the ground) and Scissor Man will be confused, and will leave. Gotts will exit the pantry, and this will give you time to look around. Look at the mask on the wall, and the chair, mask, and other objects start to fly around. Quickly grab the vase on the table and choose to throw it at the mask. It will fall, and then, leave the room. Go in the room on the very left and go inside. This room leads to two other doorways. Go inside the one on the right. Turn on the light inside, and look at the cabinet to your right (Gotts's left.) Grab the "Powder Soap" and leave the room. Now, go to the room where Rick was killed. Go in the room on the far right, and enter. Scissor Man might jump down from the ledge, if he does, Gotts will run upstairs. If Scissor Man doesn't come after you, continue upstairs anyway. Go in the room right next door. If Scissor Man is after you, use the blanket on the bed to throw it at him, you can also hide in the cabinet. Leave the room now. Head into the room at the end of the hallway. Once inside, invesigate the room. Check out the painting on the wall at the end of the room (beside the t.v.) and look at it. Something is behind the painting! Gotts takes it, and it has imformation on how to get to Barrow's Mansion in England, you can now go back to the room where you first saw Scissor Man, and escape outside. Open the screen door by the furniture, and go outside. Use the "Powder Soap" on the dog to escape, and your done! You are about to go to England! Whether you are Helen or Jennifer next, the same thing happends, and the same walkthrough for the mansion, except, just a little different. Explore around the town and you will end up going to the Airport after visiting every place except Rick's house at least twice. Get ready to go to Barrow's Mansion. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ SCENARIO 3 - Scissor Man You start out falling from a cracked floor. Head into the door in front of you. When you walk out, you are in the main hallway of the mansion. Head upstairs and go to the door on the left or right, your choice. Once inside any of them, explore them both, check desks, because some of them have keys like the "Mansion Key" which unlocks a gate later on in the game. Scissor Man might come out of the fireplace in one of the rooms, if he does, you know what to do, run! Run into the bedroom with the double beds and use the blanket to distract him and he is off your tail for awhile. Now time to explore the bottom part of the mansion. Head into the door on the left. You are in a dark hallway (if you picked up the flashlight as Helen, you should be able to see through this area, if not....Well, then you will have a hard time seeing!) Head into the first door. You will see Beth hiding. Talk to her, and she said she isn't going to stay here to hide. Talk to her again to convice her to stay put, then leave the room. Head into the third room (skip the middle door.) You will be in some kind of bedroom. Search the bed and you will find a "Copper Book." Hold on to it. Exit. No need to stay in this hallway. Exit, and go back in the main hallway. Head into the room on the left of the stairs (far wall.) Once inside, you will be in another hallway. Explore all the rooms (except for the middle door, it's just a shortcut to the other hallway) and you will also see a caged off area. Use the "Mansion Key" to open it. Explore that area later. Explore the other rooms first, then head into the door past the stairs. Once inside, open the green chest, and you will find "Lead Balls." Then, open up the white coffin, and Nolan will be inside. Talk to him. He will say he was knocked out from behind, he asks you if you have seen Jennifer, Helen replies, "No." He says he will come with you (But he actually doesn't!) Leave the room and exit. Scissor Man might be after you at this time, if he is, find a safe place to hide so he loses you. (NOTE: The cabinet in that one small bedroom where you got the "Copper Book" is not always a safe place to hide. The first time I hid in there, Scissor Man left and thought I was hiding somewhere else. The second time, he shoved his scissors into the cabinet, and stabbed me. So use that area just once, and who knows, maybe he will stab you the first time....?) When Scissor Man is off your tail (or if he wasn't) head up the newly explored stairs and go in the door once you get up them. You will be in a hallway. Go in the door closet to you. Explore these room for important items. Here are the items in the mansion if it helps any: "Copper Book" (Used to complete the mission collection of books in the library. "Cosmetic Key" (Not required to obtain, from wooden box.) "Fireplace Key" (Not required to obtain, given to you by Harris.) "Wooden Box" (Used to burn open to see what is inside, find a fireplace that is lit.) "Lead Balls" (Used to find out which ladder is safe to go down.) "Mansion Key" (Used to open the caged, blocked off area.) "Handgun" (Given to you by Gotts, used to get a A or B ending.) I hope I didn't miss any. I didn't complete the whole walkthrough for this mansion because it is so long and it takes forever. Look at the secrets section to find out who the Scissor Man really is. Remember, depending on triggers you chose and characters you played, there are 3 different people who can be Scissor Man! 6. Endings A - Best Ending B - Good Ending C - Ok Ending D - Bad Ending E - Worst Ending A is the hardest to get. You need to complete everything that you are supposed to do. B is a good ending to be proud of. You could of done everything but got a bad time. C is an OK ending. You could of missed one measily little thing and got a bad time. D is really not a good ending. You could of done a few things, but definetly wasted time on something. E is a terrible ending. You didn't do what you were supposed to do. Better luck next time! Jennifer and Helen are the two main characters you can be. To fulfill most of the game and have more of the storyline, playing as Helen will get you more of a story. Then again, I haven't beaten every ending, so, I will have to see. (NOTE:Some of this information on the walkthroughs for Jennifer could be wrong. I haven't beaten everything on hers. Please forgive me if I did make a mistake.) -----------------W-H-O--S-C-I-S-S-O-R--M-A-N--W-A-S--------------------- Sameul Barton - If you got the handgun from Gotts or didn't as Helen, you will come across Scissor Man in the mansion and Jennifer will be tied up. He will try to kill her, but as you shoot him, in a few minutes, you will find out Samuel, was the murderer. His motive for doing it: He was so rapped up in this mystery "evil took over him" and seemed to make him do this. What a creep. Nolan Simpson - If you mainly played the game as Jennifer, you will indeed have Nolan as the killer. His motive for doing it: He wanted to kill her so she could "always be with him." Edward - If you played as Jennifer, and controled Nolan at Rick's House, Edward will be the killer. His motive for doing it: I have no clue! He is a 10 year old!!!! ------------------------------------------------------------------------ There you have it, there is my walkthrough.
