    The sections haven't got a name in the game but to make it easier I will name them after their map icon picture.
    The games is linear, but once you have finished each section you can return there at any time from the map to collect missed beakers. If you are replaying a section to get missing Beakers, you can exit once you have them if you want.

    External image


    The sections are:
    1 Village

    Cave Hub:
    2 Waterfall
    3 Fire
    4 Statues
    5 Lights

    6 Island
    7 University

    The Waterfall, Fire and Statues section will have to be played twice as you require a colour that you get later. The Lights section has 1 beaker that will require a very short back track to get, if you want to do it on the one playthrough.

    1 Village

    (2 Beakers) You start in the Village, you can't get them yet, as both Beakers require a colour you haven't got.
    You will come back to the Village after the Lights section. That is the best time to get them.

    This requires at least 2 colours. Can be got anytime after completing Waterfall section. Enter house, Go upstairs and thru door. Jump to ladder. From roof, jump Left to house and get Beaker.


    This requires the colour Pink. Can be got anytime after completing Fire section. Go inside and down ladder.



    2 Waterfall

    (4 Beakers) You can only get 2 on the first playthrough. The other 2 require a 2nd colour. You can get them anytime after completing Waterfall section.


    Play this level as normal. After going thru exit (Top right), immediately come back in. The rocks will be reset. Allowing you to climb over rocks to ladder at top left of screen


    Head all the way to the bottom of this section, with rock chasing you. Beaker is in a cave to the right of the last ladder's base. Just fall off the last ledge and pull right into cave.



    2nd Playthrough: These 2 require a 2nd colour. You can get them anytime after completing Waterfall section first time. Both beakers are near the start. Once you have them quit back to cave if you want.

    Climb Up.



    Use stairs to get to ladder top left



    3 Fire

    (4 Beakers) You can only get 2 on the first playthrough. The other 2 require colours you haven't got yet. You can get them anytime after completing Statues section.

    Once you get past the crumbling platforms, fall off the ledge to the right and land in the tunnel below.



    2nd Playthrough: You require Blue and a Yellow colours to get these 2. You can get them anytime after completing Statues section. Once you get these you can quit back to cave if you want.

    EverStoned771st & most importantly,
    Thank you very much for making this WT.
    It's well made & have just the right amount of information to keep it simple & easy to follow 👍smile🖒
    However as IllegallySam points out there's a very very tiny error & when you have the pics it's so unimportant that if you've simply decided to not fix it then that's perfectly fine if however you have forgotten it or simply been unable to find it I thought I'd point it out for you, just because if the pics are slow on loading (as they occasionally are for me) or just not working at the time, then it can be a bit confusing . . .

    4 Statues

    (4 Beakers) You can only get 2 on the first playthrough. The other 2 require a colour you haven't got yet. You can get them anytime after completing Statues section first time.

    You need to bring a block down and push it Right past door (Pictured) thru wall to ledge.
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

    Push **yellow** block Right thru wall to ledge
    This block is not YELLOW but ORANGE
    So at least now you know where it is if you want to fix it 😆

    FivePartTrilogyI ran into a glitch where my achievement didn't pop at all once I hit 28/28. I waited a few hours and nothing happened. Boo hiss. So I sped through and collected them all in one sitting after restarting the game. That worked and was much faster than the first time I played through, but it was kind of annoying to have to replay almost the whole game.

    Also, rather than wait to finish the game again to do my backtracking, I did all of that right when I first got to the University. That way it would pop a little sooner since I didn't have to do the last few puzzles this time. I actually recommend doing this for all players because the beginning puzzles were fresher in my mind than they would have been if I waited to finish the game first.
