Surveying The Moleross House

The Moleross Place is no ordinary house and as you enter the foyer you can see those ‘abnormalities’ are in fact wormholes! The swirling mass of dangerous twists in space are taking over the house, and it is your job to deal with the problem.

Of course you can explore the house and interact with and pick up whatever you need, but eventually you will need to figure out how to get rid of these dangerous wormholes. Follow the steps below carefully to complete this part of Chapter 5:

  1. There are two wormholes: one huge and one small. Go through the smaller wormhole by the door in the foyer
  2. There are three wormholes in this room. Go through the largest one that leads into the Dining Room
  3. Turn off the lamp that sits on the table
  4. Using your torch, find the wormhole right near where you are stood, and go through
  5. You will now be outside, so go back through the front door
  6. There is a chowder spillage on the floor. Go near it and click Break Light
  7. The light will not break so head through the large wormhole to the kitchen
  8. Throw a rock through a large wormhole there and you will hear a glass smashing sound
  9. Go through that same wormhole back to the foyer which will now be dark
  10. Walk along the bottom of the screen to avoid any wormholes and reach the stairs
  11. Go upstairs and straight into the wormhole you see in front of you
  12. Close the shutters on the window furthest away from you
  13. Go to the dresser and untie the rope there
  14. Go outside and round to the back yard
  15. Bribe the pig for the key
  16. Head back inside and into the wormhole on the right
  17. Push a bookcase into the wormhole
  18. Go back outside and use the rope at the well
  19. Go down into the well and through another wormhole
  20. Use a crowbar to remove the wood from the window
  21. All the wormholes should now be gone
  22. Go back to the room where you untied the rope from the dresser to pick up the meteorite

Don’t forget to pick up any useful items from the house, and to read all the interesting notes left around. The attic can be accessed if you have 8 Muscle, 7 Moxie, and 6 Mysticality. The trick to this puzzle is to take your time and investigate every area in the house so you don’t overlook anything you need to investigate.
