The Room 2 Walkthrough - Chapter Two Cheats & Tips
Here's the second part of our walkthrough for The Room 2. Check the links at the top of the page for earlier or later sections.
First things first, double-tap towards the front of the model ship, until you get to a collection of four cannons. Move the two mobile cannons into their correct position using finger-swipes, and you'll open up a keyhole on the side of the ship
Tap on the right-hand crow's mast and you'll see you can turn two dials on it. Do so until the metal strips running right down both the sections are in alignment, and the rope drawings are parallel. Take the key that appears.
Once you've used the key on the lock, and opened up the new section of the ship, take the strange-shaped key, then move the red colored, semi-circle slider to the right to be taken to the next part of the challenge.
Slide away the left and right-hand bits of metal that are covering the lock. Now look at the key you picked up a moment ago and examine it closely.
Move the cogs around until they look like this, then insert the key. Turn it with a finger swipe, then use a screen swipe to lift the lid off the treasure chest.
At the top right-hand corner of the screen is an orange slider. Double-tap until you can interact with it, then move it all the way over to the left. Double-tap on the exposed square area, turn your lens on, and then slide the blocks that are stopping the metal from turning. Keep working through all of the squares in this fashion, until you've freed up the mechanism.
Tap on the yellow light that's appeared on the main layer of the treasure chest, and slide it to reveal the final panel. Manipulate the two bits of metal in a similar fashion, and you'll finally reveal a socket hole - but what goes in it?
Zoom back out, and then double-tap on the pillar just behind the treasure chest. Rotate the two pieces of metal until their openings face the little slot in the middle. Take the key from inside.
Double-tap on the side of the chest and take the inventory object that appears. Examine it closely in the inventory screen, and flip the protruding edges upwards to expand the device.
Now use it on the cog whole in the center of the treasure chest, and rotate it until the lid opens up all the way properly.
