Moderator Comment: This excellent walkthrough is the work of forum member kburra ( thanks! ) Use it to help get a new perspective on the puzzles, but keep in mind that the only "official walkthoughs" are already built into the game. ( and reproduced for you here in the Machinarium WALKTHROUGH thread ) If you get confused, remember to go back to those pictorial walkthoughs for clarification. ~Alex
