Games: Mystery of Time And Space: Solution Part I

January 12th, 2003 by Richy B. Leave a reply »

[Mystery of Time And Space]It seems there has been an additional level added to the Mystery of Time and Space adventure game that I provided the solution to back in November.

So, for all those people who are coming here looking for either the MOTAS solution, here are some hints and tips (mostly taken off the MOTAS forum) – complete with level walkthroughs/walkthrus – for MOTAS levels 1 to 4. Levels 5 to 8 are now available.

Starting off:

General hints

When you begin your quest you find yourself in a locked bedroom.
The object of the game is to escape from that building as soon as possible. But some of the doors are locked.

Use objects to help you find your way through countless rooms filled with mystery. Use your pointer to click on the screen and carefully read the feedback.

At some points you will get objects you can use. Click on an object from your inventory (top of screen) and then click on the screen to indicate where to use it. The interactive pointer indicates which object you are holding.

Most of the times an area where you could use an item your pointer will change into a hand to indicate interactivity. Walking feet indicate a way you can move to another location and a magnifying glass indicates you can take a closer view.

Hints for Level 1

  • The door is locked, can you see the key?
  • What was irritating my head all night?
  • What should I do with the Girl?

Solution for Level 1

Hints for Level 2

  • When you enter, be right on top of things.
  • Be sharp to get the computer to boot.

Solution for Level 2

Hints for Level 3

  • Sometimes you see things better when it’s dark.
  • Hide your ugly head under the stairs.
  • Make sure it all lines up.

Solution for Level 3

Hints for Level 4

  • Sing out loud: ‘Relight my fire …’
  • I suppose you’ve played jigsaw puzzle as a kid …
  • Once things are removed, they can be replaced, but it will never be the same again…

Solution for Level 4

This post is over 6 months old.

This means that, despite my best intentions, it may no longer be accurate.

This blog holds over 12 years of archived content - during that time, I may have changed my opinion of something, technology will have advanced (and old "best standards" may no longer be the case), my technology "know how" has improved etc etc - it would probably take me a considerable amount of time to update all the archival entries: and defeat the point of keeping them anyway.

Please take these posts for what they are: a brief look into my past, my history, my journey and "caveat emptor".


  1. Sam says:

    why dont you have the walkthrough to levels other then 1-4? but the ones you have did help me alot.

  2. krolla says:

    Pliz, help me. I can’t open the door that level (it’s maybe 11.)which has 4 rooms (a kitchen with a spider, a pool etc). I dunno what to do. Pliz, write me that solution! THANKS, THANKS

  3. Faerieryn says:

    I finished it!!!!!!!!!!!! Blasted wall panels don’t light up when you hit them so you have no idea how to get through the door. The light moves so you can reveal more numbers. Should be about 8 in all which took meages to figure out. More levels!!!!

  4. shizzle says:

    wtf can I do with that bloody green wall? It’s driving me insane!

  5. bboy says:

    the green wall is easy! just start at bottom right and click on the 2nd line from right click on lowest button then go up and up! you will have the first line then then move 1 line to the right and do the same thing untill your done 🙂 but i dont know where to go after the green wall 🙁 i got the key and stuff but i cant go true the hole cause its locked from other side

  6. shizzle says:

    I don’t want to interrupt your moments of victory but your sollutions to the green wall dón’t work (by your I mean neilp&bboy)

  7. Justine says:

    have dropped the laser beam but now what?????

  8. joel says:

  9. Mari says:

    Please, how do I pass the computer on level 9??? I try to mix the letters and type a word, but it doesn´t. If someone could send the answer to my e-mail, i would appreciate

  10. jesi says:

    I just beat the game. It says “to be continued”, I still had a scewdriver and a security pass left. When will the rest of the game be out?

  11. slabo says:

    How do I get the blue and the red balls in (on the pool table)? Thank you!

  12. Jones says:

    Please someone help with level 8 and the chess board. I have the chess piece, and have moved every possible move. I can get to the tile infront of the door, but can’t get in. Says NOT YET. I move to where next possible move would put me in the door, still says NOT YET.

    I got to level 8 with no problems at all, I have to be missing something. Please help!!

  13. Jones says:

    Figured out what the problem is but not how to fix it. The flashing target square goes away after I reach it the second time. I just stuck moving around.

  14. skyler says:

  21. Kas says:

  22. vbhg says:

    The solution to the green wall is:
    (starting from the left and going up and down the columns): wherever there is a grey brick just hit the one to its right.

  23. jonn says:

  30. Bjarte says:

    kelbo: what you need instead of the key card, is a key. You find it in the lamp on the 1st floor. Use that to open one of the cupboards in the basement (the floor with the three lasers). In that cupboard you find another key. Open the last door with that key, and you’re done!

  31. natalie says:

  34. Hege says:

    Ok, I got through the third lazer, but how do I break the code to open the door? What am I supposed to do with the secutitycard and the screw driver. (I presume the key is for the last door behind the shield… )
