Date 1943: physicist Dr.
John Russell is sent to Berlin by MI6 on a
covert mission to verify the authenticity of
secret Nazi documents indicating the development
of a new weapon of mass destruction. With the
help of this weapon the Nazis could very well
achieve their goal of world domination – a
horrific notion! Immediate action is of the
Russell is far from a trained agent, but he will have to infiltrate the most secure archives and government facilities to find records and clues that will lead him and his fellow agents on the right trail.
The shocking truth is revealed in Berlin’s Kaiser Wilhelm institute and Heereswaffenamt: the documents confirm that the Nazis are very close to completing the development of a “uranium bomb” – a nuclear device! The new weapons system is already nearing the first test. Russell’s mission takes on a terrifying new dimension: he finds evidence on the production facilities - but his search leads him right into the hands of a sinister German general, who has his own fanatical plans with the powerful, new weapon… Russell’s mission is only just beginning!

Russell gets called to Col Travers office in London where he is briefed and meets Peter Graham, a spy, who will act as his guide .Col Travers orders Russell and Graham to go to Berlin immediately and asks Russell to wait outside while he speaks to Graham.
First task, Russell wants to open a first floor window from the car park so he can hear what the two men are saying.
Collect loose bar from cellar window, potato from dustbin, and read newspaper. Try to open the window with the bar – but it wont reach. Notice the crow on the branch and set the potato on the cobblestones to lure bird off branch. Now take branch. In inventory combine bar and branch to reach window. Get caught by Graham and told its time to leave.
Meet Schmidt, Graham’s contact. Talk to both men they are planning to secret into KWI (Kaiser Wilhelm institute )but there are two guards at the main gate they need to distract them. Schmidt will give you a penknife.
Go to delivery van open crate and take contents + rubber hose hanging in van. Pick up note on road at back of van and read.
Use the knife on soap to make soapflakes. Pick up some pepples and newspaper from the road.
Tie rubber hose to handle on side of van to use to catapult the pebbles. Graham takes over. Once the guards are distracted go to KWI with Graham.
The door is locked and Graham goes to find another way in.
Push newspaper under door and use pencil to push key out but key is too big to fit under the door.
Go back to truck and talk to Schmidt.
Pick up rubber hose
Combine hose and bottle in inventory and attach to van radiator. The bottle will fill with water. Add Ferrous Sulphate + Rock salt = Hydrochloric acid. Go back to KWI and pour in keyhole. It burns. Graham reappears.
The door is squeaky – how do you enter without waking the sleeping guard inside (snoring)
Go back to the truck.
Again Combine hose and bottle in inventory and attach to van radiator and fill with water add the soapflakes = liquid soap. Bring back and use on door to stop squeaking.
Wait for Peter to tiptoe past guard to laboratories
Go to storeroom on your right. Pick up the wire, plunger (or plumbers helper !), sticky tape and screwdriver. Exit.
Cross the foyer to the door to offices. Enter.
See three doors on the right of the screen in corridor. Try first door – a bathroom locked.
Enter second door – an office. Look around at bookshelf, blackboard and take the torch – its damaged. Lift scraps of paper from bin and check the cold radiator. Exit room
Goto third door . Locked but notice the window in door isn’t secure. Use the spirits from inventory to soften putty, the knife to scrape putty away and the plunger to remove glass. Then use the wire on opened window to enter.
Directors office. Look at grandfather clock to left of door – the second hand is missing. Check the bookcase, warm radiator and desk. The middle drawer is locked. Go to table clock on sideboard right of door and look closely – there’s the key. Take key and open desk drawer.
Take scraps of paper and combine in inventory with other scraps of paper .A screen opens. Drag the pieces by left clicking and turn with right click to solve the puzzle. When the pieces of paper are in the correct position they change colour from pale pink to white. Read message and note week 2:Pi

Take the metal pin from drawer and go to Grandfather clock. Place the pin (second hand) on clock and turn the hands to five to eight.
The bookcase opens to reveal a secret room.
Enter secret room.
Peter sees the safe but doesn’t know how to open. Look at safe . use Pi as the code as mentioned in journal and paper scraps.
Pi = 3.1415
Turn dial left to 3 (listen for click after each number) right to 1,left to 4, right to1, and left to 5. Safe opens. The uranium bomb is undergoing tests at HWA – Heereswaffenamt.
Take a look at the papers on the desk there is another code L = o-z-o R = o-o-z.
Exit the room and go to Peter at top of corridor. The guard in the foyer has woken because he is cold. Find a way to turn heating back on so he’ll go back to sleep.
Go to middle door (office) and over to desk drawers use code L = o-z-o R = o-o-z on drawers . left hand side top drawer open, middle drawer closed, bottom drawer open, Right hand side bottom drawer closed, middle drawer open and then the top drawer will open.Take the radiator valve wheel.
Use the valve wheel on cold radiator beside you – still no hot water flowing. Go to directors office to the warm radiator and use valve. Heating back on. Return to Peter at top of corridor and wait for guard to go to sleep.
Exit the institute and return to truck.
While Peter talks to Schmidt , use the wireless in the back of truck to contact Travers and inform him that they are going to HWI.
Follow Peter to the side entrance of the building. The door is locked. Meet Anne Taylor from MI6– Anne opens door . Peter stays outside as lookout and Anne and John enter building.
Office – hear a guard coming and duck into side office. Exhaust conversation with Anne. Look around the room. Take telephone cord and combine with knife in inventory to strip. Tie stripped telephone cord to door handle. Pick tied cord from inventory and use on electric socket to the bottom left of door.

Two guards are patrolling the lower level. Anne tries the light switch and learns from the guards conversation that when 2 lights are switched off the guards will check the fuse box and you’ll be caught.
Anne goes down to the bottom level the special archives is at the far end in the central aisle.
Stealth puzzle. – in the top right hand side of the screen a square is presented. It contains a floor plan divided into 12 sections. Each section has a light switch. For Anne to get to the special archives you must turn the light off in the section you want her to move to. Turn the light back on before you turn the next one off and make sure the guards aren’t looking or facing Anne when doing so.
I moved down the pathway 12 9 6 5 2
When Anne gets to the special archives she cant access without a code so she must return to John.
I used the same pathway back but had to be a bit more careful with the guards and had to wait in the shadows some times. If youre caught you’ll have to start the puzzle over again .
Anne talks to John and thinks the guards may have the code so they need to disable guards.
John’s turn – John goes down and notices the two rings at the base of the bookcases in aisle 12 . Tie the telephone cord to the rings.

John reads document and discovers that not will the rocket propulsion system not work but the uranium bomb wont work due to the implosion mechanism. The prototype is being constructed in a small town, Haigerloch near Stuttgart.
Von Pressnitz appears holding Peter captive and threatens them all if John doesn’t help fix the implosion mechanism. The prisoners are taken to house 12
