Tearstone – Game Introduction

Welcome to the Tearstone walkthrough on Gamezebo. Tearstone is an adventure game played on the PC created by DragonsEye Studio. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints and a strategy guide on how to complete Tearstone.

Getting Started

  • Click on the link above to download the game.
  • You will be asked to type in your user name and you can play several games at the same time if you wish by clicking on the “Change Player” button.
  • Options – Click the options button to adjust music and ambient sound effect volume, mute all music and sound, change screen resolution, and toggle between full screen and windowed mode.
  • There is a brief tutorial which will show you how to maneuver around the game screen.
  • You will need to find objects hidden in the various scenes and you will have to combine some of the items you find in the “Mixer” to make new items to use in the scene.
  • The cursor will change to indicate to you which action is needed.
  • There is a “Back” button at the bottom center of the screen that you can use at any time.
  • There is no timer and no penalty for using the hint button located at the bottom left of the game screen. You will have to wait for the hint button to recharge between uses. If you try to use the hint button and there is nothing you can do at that location you don’t have to worry about wasting it as you can use it in another location once it can actually be used to help you out.
  • Whenever you see the “!” symbol above a character be sure to click on them as they will have important text for you to read. Many of the characters end up giving you needed items so be sure to complete any quests associated with them.

Game Tips

  • Look for the little sparkles on the screen as they will give you a guide as to areas that let you move to another scene or sometimes find a hidden object.
  • Be sure to use the notebook. There are several solutions to mini game puzzles hidden within the pages of the notebook. I will point this out in the walkthrough whenever I can.
  • Use your hint button! There is no penalty for using it and when you do it will cause an area to highlight with sparkles showing you a general location but still leaving things up to you to figure out.
  • If nothing can be done in a location you are notified if you click on the hint button and this can be very valuable in saving you time in the game.
  • There is no rapid click penalty in the game so click all you want. When you connect with something of use it will disappear and reappear in your inventory, or it will trigger the cursor to change which in itself gives you an instruction. (See “Cursors” for more information.)
  • Use your back button to leave a scene and make an effort to remember your path. This will save you a lot of time. In the walkthrough I have included how many times and where to click to find a destination as well as how many times to click on the “Back” button to help you find the locations noted in the walkthrough faster.

Game Elements

Tearstone

Inventory

  • Your inventory is always shown at the bottom of the game screen. You will see all the items that need to be found to solve the puzzles before you.
  • The items will be in black and white with a brown background until you find them.
  • Once you find a hidden object in the scene click on it and it will move into the inventory slot where it will become colorized and the background will turn blue behind the item. Once an item is colorized it can be clicked on and used somewhere else in the scene or combined with another found item in the “Mixer” to make another item that can be used in the scene.
  • If you see an “M” next to an inventory item this indicates the result of two other inventory items being mixed together in the “Magic Mixer” This can sometimes provide you with valuable clues as to which items to place in the magic mixer since you are given the answer ahead of time. (See “Magic Mixer” below)

Cursors

  • Gears – Gears appear whenever you can use an item in your inventory to act upon it.
  • Hands – Hands appear to grab items and allow you to move items to new locations.
  • Weather Vane – The green weather vane indicates an area you can click on which will move you to a new location. Click on the “Back” button to return to the previous location. There can be several weather vanes in one scene.
  • Weather Vane with Gears – If you see a weather vane with a gear you will not be able to move to the next location until you find the inventory item that unlocks this weather vane somehow. It could be a key, a light source, or several other possible items.
  • Puzzle Pieces – If you see a puzzle piece icon appear this indicates a mini game puzzle that you must complete in order to progress in the game. You can skip a mini game after a while but it is more challenging to complete all the mini games if you can.
  • Dialogue “!” – This exclamation over a character’s head means they have something important to say to you. You must read this dialogue as it contains important clues to help you progress in the game. You will see a dialogue bubble appear over the character when you place your cursor over them. There can be more than one stream of dialogue from a character so be sure to go back to them if you get stuck. Once you give a character an item they request they usually have something new to say to you and usually give you a reward for completing the task.
  • No rapid click penalty! – There is no penalty for rapid clicking in the game.

Tearstone

Mini Games

  • Each chapter will have one or two mini games which will be included in the walkthrough. The mini games are not timed and can be skipped by clicking on the skip button at the top left corner of the game screen. There is no penalty for skipping a puzzle.
  • If you are not sure what to do when you get to a mini game puzzle click on “Help” at the upper right corner for a brief description.
  • Most mini games once finished give you a clue that is written in your notebook for future use. Be sure to refer to the notebook often and read through your chapter goals.
  • Note – The hint button does not work on the mini game puzzles. The walkthrough below has a solution and detailed instructions for each mini game.
  • If you see a puzzle piece on your cursor when you place it over an item that indicates clicking on that area will trigger a mini game.

Tearstone

Notebook/Goals

  • The notebook is established after the brief tutorial at the beginning of the game. Once you have a notebook any new goals that you acquire while playing will be written in your notebook.
  • You will also be able to see notes that help you in various quests. The page opens to the most recent relevant note and along the right side of the page you will see a “Goals” tab and along the left side of the book you will see a “notes” tab which allows you to toggle between the two whenever you need to.
  • Each time a new goal is put before you a brief notification message will appear along the top of the screen. Click on the goal tab to see the current chapter goals as you unlock them.
  • As you complete a goal a red check mark will be placed through it.
  • You can access the notebook at any time in the game with no penalty for doing so.
  • It is wise to keep an eye on the notes as they many times give you valuable clues to solving mini games and puzzles.

Tearstone

The “Magic Mixer”

  • The mixer is located at the bottom right corner of the game screen.
  • Any item in your inventory that is marked with a red and white “M” symbol is an item that has been combined with another item and placed in the “Magic Mixer”. In other words it is the result of combining two other inventory items that you will need to find. Sometimes having the answer will help you figure out which two items to combine in the mixer.
  • How to use the Magic Mixer – You will see the words “Magic Mixer” over the area along with two empty boxes. When prompted you will need to combine two of the items you have found in a scene to build another item that can be used in another location.(These items are marked with an “M”)
  • Click on an item in your inventory then on an empty box to place it. Click on the second item and place it in the second box. Now click on the red “Mix” button at the bottom. You will see some visual effects then the new item will appear in your inventory with a blue background and colorized ready for you to use when appropriate.
  • Note – If you get stuck be sure to click on the hint button. Sometimes you can’t proceed because you need to combine two items to move on. If you click on the hint button it will tell you to mix items if you have the items in your inventory to do so. There is no penalty for using this method and it is very helpful when you get stuck.
  • If you are incorrect and the items you have chosen to combine won’t work, you will simply hear a buzzer sound and the two items will be placed back in inventory without penalty so you can try with two different objects.

Walkthrough

  • The following walkthrough will show you how to play the game from start to finish. It is not the absolute only way to play the game as you can choose to do tasks in a different order but this will show you how to solve all the puzzles, find all the hidden objects, show you how to combine them and use them on other objects and how to move from one location to another and in an order to keep you moving if you get stuck.
  • The game is divided into eight chapters and each chapter has at least six to ten goals which you will need to complete. They are listed in your notebook and you can see them at any time.
  • There are one or more mini games per chapter and the solutions are shown in the walkthrough. Note that it is possible there could be a different solution but it will be very close and instructions as to how to play the mini game will be here for you as well as images of the completed puzzles to help you out.
  • Each time you complete a chapter you will see an animated snippet which ties the story line together for you. If you do not want to watch this little movie you can click on a skip button at the bottom of the screen.
  • Be sure to refer to the screen shots in this walkthrough as they will be very helpful if you get stuck.
  • Most hidden objects are color coded to help you easily identify them.

Tutorial Chapter

Tearstone

  • The game starts out with a basic tutorial which is easy to follow. The tutorial is included in this walkthrough with more detailed explanation in case you need it.
  • A text box will appear with detailed instructions for the first few scenes and then you are on your own.

  • Click on these items and they will move into your inventory.
  • Use the knife – Next you will be asked to click on the knife in your inventory and use it on something. Another blue arrow will appear pointing to a rubber band to the left of the scene near the tree. Click on the knife so it sticks to your cursor and bring it to the rubber band on the tree and click on it. You will see a set of gears appear when you have done this correctly.
  • Now a smaller piece of rubber cord will be located under the area you first clicked on. Click on the rubber to add it to your inventory.
  • Use the Saw – Next, you will be asked to use the saw on the tree branch at the top right of the screen.

When you place it over the branch which will be marked this one time only with a blue arrow, you will see the gears appear and once you click on it the branch will fall at the top of the stairs and you will need to click on it to pick it up. Another blue arrow will appear pointing it out and once you click on it you will find it in your inventory ready for further use.

  • Weather Vane with Gears – If you see a green weather vane but there are gears with it, then you will not be able to just click on it and move to a new scene. You will need to find an item to act upon that area to open it such as a key or an item that allows you to light the way or get a closer look.

Chapter 3

Tearstone

? Chapter three begins with your introduction to “Tommy” and he tells you that you need to start the alarm system to fool the guard into walking away from his post so you can get on the elevator that will take you to a vehicle that can get you to Tearstone Island.

? There are two areas you will need to get to that the guard will be standing in front of. If you can distract him with alarms and phone calls you should be able to get to these scenes

? Find the hidden objects in the first room and click on Tommy to talk to him. He asks you for a favor which is to find his toolbox. If you do so he will help you out.

? Click on the coin which is shown circled in the image above.

? Next, click on the passageway behind Tommy.

Tearstone

? Here you will see the elevator and the guard in front of it. When you click on the guard he says, “Access Denied”

? You will have to get Tommy to fix the cameras for you in order to start the alarm and distract the guard away from his post.

? There is another coin located at the right side near the guard circled in red above. Click on it to add it to your inventory. Coins can be used as soon as you get them or you can wait until you have all four. It is probably best to use them as you get them as they bring items into your inventory.

? Here are the items the coins will purchase for you. Please note that the fourth coin is much harder to get and may take a while.

? Coin 1 – Tommy’s Toolbox

? Coin 2 – Spider

? Coin 3 – Eggs

? Coin 4 – Record

? Take the coin out of your inventory and place it at the center of the fountain.

? Tommy’s toolbox should appear in the fountain. Click on it to take it into inventory and then click on “Back” so you can give it to Tommy.

? Use the second coin and the spider will appear right at the center of the fountain. Click on him and add him to inventory.

Tearstone

? Click on the toolbox and give it to Tommy.

? Read the new dialogue and Tommy will tell you he can now fix the surveillance cameras to help you out with fooling the guard.

? New notes and goals have been added to your notebook.

? Tommy will disappear and when he does click on the blueprint under his chair.

? Click on the blueprint in inventory and place it along the right side of the scene where the computers are located.

? This will take you to a new scene.

Tearstone

Tearstone

? This scene is where you learn to fool the guard away from the right side of the elevator. A little later you will learn how to fool him away from the left side of the elevator and fountain.

? Look for the little green fuses that are hidden in the scene.

? When you click on a fuse it sticks to your cursor until you place it in the fuse tray at the bottom left.

? Note the blue piece of paper hanging up under the monitor. This is actually the answer to the puzzle.

? Place a fuse in the tray everywhere you see a black line in the drawing. This would also translate to from left to right positions one and two will have a fuse, three through five will be empty, six, eight and ten will have a fuse and spots seven and nine will be empty.

? See the second image above for the answer.

? The fuse will lock in place when placed but can be removed if needed.

? Once the fuses are placed you will need to click on the start alarm button to the right of the fuses.

? Once this is done you can go back to the elevator and go up the large stairway to the right of it to explore what is there.

Tearstone

? Hit the back button once and go through the door way and up the large staircase to the right. The guard should be gone now. If he is not gone go back and check that you followed all the steps correctly in turning on the alarm.

? Once in this room click on the hidden objects in the scene which are shown circled and color coded.

? Take the coin, spade, and cage key into your inventory.

Tearstone

? Next take the cage key from your inventory and use it on the cage. It will lift open and now you can click on the bird and he will move into your inventory.

? Go back to the first room by hitting the back key one time and stop at the fountain to spend your third coin. You will get the colored eggs this time. Be sure to put them into inventory. They will be at the bottom tier of the fountain near where the toolbox was.

? Next go back into the first scene of the chapter where you met Tommy.

Tearstone

? Note the telephone sitting to the left of the doorway. You will need to click on the Parrot and place him on this telephone. If you click here beforehand you will see a message saying you need someone “Chatty”

? Once you place the bird you will be taken to a new scene.

Tearstone

Tearstone

? In the first image you will see the parrot next to an old fashioned rotary phone. Be sure to click on the razor blade circled in yellow at the bottom left of the scene. This will move into your inventory.

? The phone is currently on the hook. Click on the handle as shown to take it off the hook.

? Now you can dial a number that will cause a phone to ring in another part of the building and this will distract the guard away from the left side of the elevator.

? You may have to go back and forth starting the alarm and calling on the phone until you find all the items you need.

? After much trial and error it appears that the three digit number is “2-2-3″ You must click on each number and wait a second in between. If you hear a busy tone you have guessed incorrectly and will have to try again.

? It is not known if everyone will have the same phone number or if trial and error is the only way to learn this number.

? Once you have entered the correct three digit extension the guard will leave his post and move away from the left side of the elevator. Now you are free to go back and explore this site.

? Go back once, out the doorway and click on the area to the left of the fountain.

Tearstone

Tearstone

? Take the shovel and use it on the plot of ground at the center of scene.

? When the coin is revealed click on it to add it to inventory.

? Click on the pear at the top of the scene and ad it to your inventory.

? Use your razor blade at the top right side of the poster marked with red in image above. You will find a seed behind the poster which you must click on to add to your inventory.

? Important – Now you will need to go back up the staircase to the right of the elevator. Before you can do so you will need to go back into the room with fuses in it and click on the “Start Alarm” button to turn it on and distract the guard from that side of the elevator.

? Once you do this go up to the room at the top of the stairs and click on the picture on the wall which will take you to a new scene.

Tearstone

? You will need to put all the required items into this room in order to obtain the passkey to open the elevator with.

? Place the following items

? Pear - On the Bear’s sword.

? Eggs – In the nest at the top left corner.

? Spider – On the web at the bottom right corner.

? Record – On the phonograph player at the center of the scene.

? When all these items are placed the pass key will be shown to you.

? Click on it to add it to your inventory.

? Back out of the scene twice to end up by the elevator.

Tearstone

? Once you are given the pass card the information will go into your notebook.

? This is very important because if you look closely at the pass card there is a pattern on it and later on you will see this is a solution to a puzzle.

Tearstone

? Take the pass card and put it on the domed glass area to the left of the elevator. Once you do this you will be taken to a puzzle.

Tearstone

Tearstone

? Enter the correct code to open the elevator.

? As stated on the pass card and shown in image above you should consider the shaded areas in the 3 x 3 grid of hexagons.

? Click on the top hexagon only in column one

? Click on the second and third hexagon in column two

? Click on only the second hexagon in column three.

? If you are successful the elevator door will open for you.

? Click on the door to enter the elevator.

Tearstone

? Now you are in the power supply room.

? Place the soil and the seed in the magic mixer and you will have a plant seedling in your inventory.

Tearstone

Tearstone

? Place the seedling in the flower pot in the center of the scene.

? Next take the magic bottle and add its contents to the flower pot.

? In a moment there will be a full grown plant reaching to the power supply box. Now you can click on it to start a mini game.

Tearstone

Tearstone

Mini Game

? In this mini game you need to match the components to the light grey areas of the background.

? The gold tiles will fit over the grey areas when you click on them and lock them into place.

? You can not rotate the pieces and you only get so many of each kind which is listed next to it.

? You must fit every single piece on the board without any left over or empty spaces.

? I have color coded each piece so that you can see how the solution works.

? Once you complete this puzzle you will have completed chapter three.

? A brief video snippet will now play to segue the storyline into the next chapter.
