Escape Academy as the name suggest is a game where you need to train and become the ultimate escapist by solving puzzles, and hacking servers either alone or with your friends.
This guide will tell you how to complete the What Lies Below level in the game.
Escape Academy: What Lies Below Walkthrough
This is the final level of the game and it’s a very long and challenging one as players need to solve different puzzles in a limited time.
After exiting the elevator, you will find that the Headmistress has been trapped and Quanty will force you to take his exam. Climb the stairs and enter the first room filled with chairs.
Now grab the glasses from the statue on your right as it will allow you to read the hidden messages written in purple.
Next, you need to open the locker belonging to Student 00 by using this combination of code:
- Right 10
- Left 25
- Right 15
Collect the pin and the test sheet from this locker and then insert the test sheet into the machine on the left side of the door.
Mark Ace on the sheet and then press the orange button.
Collect the Testing Sheet and then proceed to the next room.
After entering the room, you will need to pick up this battery from the shelf in the corner.
Now you need to press the buttons corresponding to the letters on the test sheet to solve the puzzle. Press these buttons in the corresponding order:
- Press A (Empty Circle)
- Press D(Dot Circle)
- Press E(Empty Circle)
- Press C(Dot Circle)
- Press B(Dot Circle)
Head towards the exit and insert the test sheet into the machine. Mark B, C,D and press the button to unlock the door.
Now in this room, you need to connect the wires on the lethal voltage board to their respective letters one by one (A, B, C, D) and check which ones have green lights on them.
To pass the wires through square A, check the photo above.
For squares, B, C and E, refer to the photo above.You can also connect the wires to square E to find out whether its shows the green light or not.
Now insert your test sheet into the machine and mark the letters A, D, and E to complete the puzzle. Press the button to unlock the door and access the next room.
Here you will see 5 different letters (A, B, C, D, E) on the wall with Morse code written below them. There are also five yellow pillars and spots on the ground representing the different letters. These pillars have yellow coloured lights blinking on them and you need to match them to their respective letters.
Move these pillars according to their blinks with the short blinks denoted by dots and longer ones as lines. Since these pillars have varying heights, we can easily identify them based on their heights and move them accordingly starting with the shortest one:
- C (Shortest)
- D (Tallest)
After you have placed a pillar in the correct spot, a hatch will open on the top revealing the letter that you need to fill inside the sheet. You need to only focus on the ones with a dot in the circle inside them.
Insert the test sheet into the machine and mark the letters B & D to complete the puzzle. Press the button to unlock the door and proceed to the next room.
In this room, you need to pick up the chemical tanks on your left and insert them into the machine to find out which one each of them represents. You need to find out which one of them contains water.
Collect all 5 tanks from the shelf and insert them one by one. To save your time, here are the contents of all the tanks:
- Tank A: Br2
- Tank B:F2
- Tank C:CoO
- Tank D:H2O
- Tank E: F2
Since Water is H2O, we can now deduce that Tank D is the answer.
Insert the test sheet into the machine and mark the letter D on the sheet. Press the button and proceed to the next room.
Now that you solved all the puzzles, it’s time to defeat Quantity. Head back to the area between Rooms 2 & 3.
Interact with the small vent in the middle and use the pin in your inventory to open it.
Crawl into the vent to access the central core of Quanty’s mainframe.
Access the first terminal in the room and insert Tank D containing Water into it.
Proceed to the next terminal and mark the letters in the same way that they have been marked on the test sheet.
In the last terminal, connect the battery to the wires to overload the mainframe.
Head back to Room 02 with large pillars and place the pillars in such a way to create the pillars to get to the top floor of the room.
Use the pin to loosen the screws and open the vent.
Crawl into the vent and press the red button on the machine at the end of the corridor.
Push the ladder down and use it to climb down from the area.
Pick up the battery from there and then carry it back into Room 02 with the voltage board and plug it into the tower there to charge the battery.
Now carry this charged battery back into the mainframe room and plug it into the terminal there.
Interact with the 4 screens in the middle in a clockwise direction.On the first screen, enter the words “STOP” on the screen.
On the second screen, enter the words “WIPE” in the terminal.
In the third screen, enter the words “REFRESH” in the terminal.
On the fourth screen, enter the words “UNDO” in the terminal.
Finally, you need to interact with the screen with a bug on it and Prime Directive written below.
Enter the words “SHUT DOWN” on this screen to finish the game!
That’s you have successfully completed the last level of Escape Academy!
