Coasters, deception, just trying to shoot you - all this in the game will be enough. It is understandable, because in front of you on the table is the most natural detective, and even interactive. Trivial pursuit and shooting for a long time are not a full-fledged feature of this genre, they were replaced by puzzling riddles (which abound in the Urban Runner) and promotion, through brainstorming, complex chain of crimes.
Cinematics in this game enough. Sometimes even more than is necessary (for example, in the initial episode of the ten-Drawing upon each other, roofs, basements and abandoned buildings). But between the inserts real action is required from you. How are they produced?
Basically, it's all done easily enough. Control of the game is entirely based on the mouse, and all actions are performed by pressing (or mouse-) on the left button. Right-called inventory. This is the place that holds almost all the found items. If the item is in your hands - then Right-he throws himself on the floor, or retracted back
in inventory. All other actions with objects and people executed simple mouse-(ie tap). When you can do this, the cursor changes from a simple hand with fingers loosely arranged in the index finger (and below shows the name of the object or creature).
The only exception is the transformation in the hands of the shooter. This means in this direction may move or rotate. Use of this pointer is replaced by a picture (and, of course, the movement). In addition, the cursor when picked up in front of you there is a stylized image of a telephone handset with buttons. This - the main menu of the game, hereinafter referred to as simply - "your phone". Descriptions of the keys and the actions they produced, is given below. Calling the phone image pauses the game - remember this because the game has a lot of moments calculated for a limited time on the timer. During the pause movies possible.
Now the buttons. Button "Management" with the image of a circle and a halo around it. These are the basic actions not related to the game itself - save (save game), load (load the game), quit (Quit the game), version (version of the game).

In the edition

Freddy hit by a car. Ada kidnapped (or left on their own? Well, exactly, she at one with them - except for her, no one knew the address of your secret place). Now you are prepared to shoot. So that this unfortunate fact was not fast pryachtes for cover (down arrow).

On the street

When you pass by the garbage can, throw back glases are you in inventory (this will confuse the marks). Now you need to play the card game (similar to thimbles, but here you have to correctly identify the location of the card with the image of the Queen). The stakes are the clock. Lipschitz hours you do not have money too. And do not believe in credit. But - there is a way out - inventori climb in and out of the Adda's bag reach for a business card and put it in your hand thimblerigger. Inspectors are respected, and you can temporarily play without betting. Your task - to win 3 times - and your desired watch Marcos!


If you find it difficult to win against Schuller (which is understandable), you can trick it in two ways.
  • The Queen is never that card (usually falls after shuffling on the very first box), which is supposed to be. Watch carefully for that card, which, after shuffling is placed on the second box - that she is the most royal.
  • No one is stopping you saved before specifying the card, and return back with the load game, and call the correct decision.
  • Here is a new obstacle - code door. Come in inventori and Choose the ink-stained paper (stained document). Take a look at it, using the magnifier button on your phone. Ink is highlighted on it
  • Secret inscription! Read it using the memory (coded document). Just do not forget to bring the list! So, everything is clear. You need to take the key out of inventori Tony (tony's keyring) and place it 4 times in the left hole, 2 in the center and one at the right time.


After a series of murders and debriefing with your ladylove, which happened in the shower and on the shape of a killer (that she killed Marcos) you heroically quarrel and find themselves at the closed door to the laboratory of the institute. Behind the door, someone nice chats. Take a timer (bell) from the nightstand next to the door. Turn right, and use it (bell) on the frame glass (window sill). At this point in the game crept into a small mistake - do not call up the menu in the form of "your phone", so inventory call by pressing the right mouse button. Turn left, and when the timer is triggered, go in the door and use the dagger (knife) for a male doctor (Kevork). Just do everything very quickly - speed is paramount. After splitting the doctor Dramisha, and its full recognition in villainy should be murder. And you're in a room filled with deadly gas. Quick, take out the magnet's inventory and use it on a white box with metal (system). The door is open, and you are free to fall into the arms of his beloved.

The door to the secret room

Take out inventori watch (watch) and consider them more closely with the Magnifier button on your phone. Click on the clock on the right (pool the winger). Remove it (removew the winger). Click on the center of her hours (center). Insert the pin back in the hours (hole). Expand the clock with the left arrow. Click on the center circle (turn the disc). Then, on the outer circle (turn the ring) and the notorious button (winger) left. Repeat these three steps 2 more times. If you did everything correctly, the clock will automatically close (they are now called activated watch) - and now they need to use the code lock to the left of the door (system).

Secret room

Move away from the terminal. Open the yellow bedside table (drawer) - first top drawer, and then lower. Now you have a portable laser and remote control. Look on the nightstand (behond the drawer) - now you have another bottle and insecticides. Take up the remote control and get accustomed to it using the Magnifier button on your phone. Enter the room number A2 and turn the switch to the highest temperature (up to reds and all the way). Now insert the remote is programmed into the hole, it is designed for (reciver). It is on the wall, the left side of the door, and almost at the lock. You will hear a little puff, and now you have to wait for the moment when the time expires, and the thugs will break into your room. First, Kevork, to kill with a balloon with insektetsidami (insecti-cide), the second - the big guy Erazera - with a pocket laser. If there is still an inspector - it means you have completely forgotten about the previous operation with a remote control, and you should do it from the start.
A little later, you have to solve a difficult question - post a hell to live, or to let her die. From here you have nothing depends - it's still going to die! Just do not forget to rummage around in the pocket at the Kevork killed - there is necessary to you the keys. If you sit in front of the terminal and can not find a body - do not worry, just step back from it, and the body will be on your left.
Last, solve puzzles. How to run a car? First, turn it - the switch is in the upper right-hand corner. Pull the fourth left cartridge (cart) with the button on it. Insert it into the main drive (slot). Now, you need to correctly set the switches under the slot. The exact answer to this gives torn card schematic, lying in your bag's inventory in Adda. Take it, and collect keys by Magnifer on your phone.


  • The red rim - it edges scheme (they need to collect first)
  • I Downstairs is a dark stripe and the inscription «data card»
  • In the middle of the circuit are blue and gray rectangles that are perpendicular to each other.
  • Then you have to understand yourself. It is not difficult to be precise thing, otherwise the system will put the pieces is clearly not there.
Now associate each of the switches to ours. If next to the switch painted two red circles - it is open. So, in order to scheme to work, we need to lower down 2,3 and 6 switches. Check the (red button to the right of the switches).
Should light up black numbers at the bottom. Now enter through the black key code 151 (remember the microfilm? Now, CLI is more than words, and the number 151 written in Roman numerals), insert the key Paola (Paul's keyring) in the keyhole to the right of the number keys. Now the code in 1004 (the word MSU), and the key is Tony (Tony's keyring). And the number 10, and Lev's keyring! Everything passed! See the cartoon of your salvation!
