It's another late night, and I'm archive digging. It's kind of like treasure hunting...Nancy Drew games style. Like yesterday's post, I never know what exciting things I am about to come across. I was just as excited as you all were about finding that concept art for Secret of the Scarlet Hand.
Now I have come across something familiar, and no, it is not new, but I wanted to see if you could recognize where this cartoon is from:
Can you name the game where this popcorn man appears?
Oh! I nearly forgot! The winner for the Weekend Puzzle Contest is Britnie J. from Texas! Congrats sleuth! Here is the solution to the puzzle:
If H=RAN, A=SAW and TMB= N, then choose TOT [means that the letters in this string, HRIATMN would represent a game, going in order. RAN is game #20, so R would be #21, and I would be #22 and so on.] The letter you need is [I]. Apply this logic to the last slide at the bottom of the puzzle. You should get [D].
Shift the # of Hardy boys [move 2 spaces in the only direction you can].
Slide Quatro [this means 4] in the only direction that lets you move this many You'll get [S].
Left, middle, right. The one CRY is to ICE and VEN. [CRY is the middle, between ICE and VEN]. This means to slide [to the center letter = U]
Slide #MHM [Message in a Haunted Mansion is game #3. Move this many in the direction that has enough letters to do so].
Nancy’s __#__ case was SSH. Slide this many. [Secret of the Scarlet Hand is game #6]. Slide [6 spaces].
Pull left #STFD. [Stay Tuned for Danger is game #2]. You'll get [O].
Slide % (this number on your keyboard). The percentage sign is [on the number 5 key]. The letter you slide to is [C].
C=Cyan, M=Magenta, Y=Yellow, Black = ?. In printing terms, these are the colors that you use, and Black is represented with the letter [K]. You can learn more about print colors in The Haunting of Castle Malloy.
“D” on the phone = #?. Move this many. Just like in Secrets Can Kill, you need to take a look at a phone number pad to find the letter D, it's on [button number 3]. Slide this many in the direction you can to get [E].
Voila! Once you have all of the letters in the vertical box, it shall read [It's Unlocked]. Haha, I thought that was funny. ;-) Well done sleuths! It's looks like many of you got it. Congrats, perhaps we'll have more contests in the upcoming weekend puzzles. ;)
