Some items can be combined in your inventory, combine them by selecting the object in your inventory, and placing the item on top of the other item in your inventory.

A premium version is available, in which you are able to embark on an additional adventure. You will have the opportunity to play Escape From The Shadows without having to watch a single ad.

Bastian’s Childhood Home

The first place you will have to start searching for clues in Escape From The Shadows will be in Bastian’s childhood home, which is abandoned.

Using every available clue, you will need to pay special attention to every single item in each of the rooms. Tapping on various items or objects does not give you penalties as so many other games do.

The best tip we can give is that you start off in one room, taking note of each of the clues, and then moving on to the next room.

The very first clue can be found behind the first photograph in the first room. You will obtain a rusty key when you tap on the photograph until it rotates.

Note that you will have to tap on the blue table first before you will be shown the screen with the photographs as a closeup. This applies to most clues in Escape From The Shadows.

When you have completed this whole scene, Detective Larson will proceed to his station where you will have to complete the map to find the cabin.

Once you have solved the map, you will be taken to Bastian and Laia, who are both trapped in a dungeon.

The Dungeons

The dungeons can be very confusing, as there is a lot going on at once and plenty of rooms and items to interact with. Proceed to the left twice where you will find a room with a blue door.

When inside, tap on the shadow hands and enter the sequence below. This should get you started in the right direction:

The Cabin

Your very first clue here would be the knife, matchbox, and pile of straw. Using these clues will enable you to complete the Chapel successfully.
