The Fall: Revelation is a 2011 first-person puzzle game, the third chapter in a trilogy from Kheops Studio, the same developers who created The Egyptian Prophecy, Echo: Secrets of the Lost Cavern, The Secrets of da Vinci and Destination: Treasure Island. It has a similar game structure as their 2006 release Safecracker: The Ultimate Puzzle Adventure, but perhaps with a slightly more involved backstory and a medical theme. Unlike most of Safecracker, the gameplay is linear, in which you generally cannot work on more than one puzzle or goal at a time. Further actions by your avatar "John" are possible only after he discovers a specific need. There at least 15 hidden-object games (HOGs) within this chapter, considerably more than in the previous two chapters. There are token examples of warehouse, jigsaw, assembly and matching puzzles, but these seemed more of an afterthought compared to the wider variety of puzzles in the earlier chapters. Unfortunately, there is no way to replay the verbal comments in the game, so play close attention to what's being said. With no saved-game structure in this Casual/Adventure game hybrid, you must exit the game and manually copy a status file in order to be able to return to an earlier point in the game.

A new feature in Chapter 3 of the game is the [PgUp] key for brightening the screen up to 4 times, useful in dark places for HOGs and other visual puzzles. The game's Play Mode is set to Adventure. Some of the directions in this walkthrough assume the 360° Free View setting is off. All mini-games and puzzles are played in Normal mode.

New Game

After the game intro, solve the HOG for 20 canes:
After the skippable game interface recap, you're starting in the Entrance of a Victorian-era house. Zoom in on the table to discover that the year is 1888. In a letter from a French woman named Elisabeth, she is seeking medical help from a doctor for her unconscious husband. Back out and pick up the Doctor's bag from the chair. Head upstairs and enter the open doorway at left into the Patient's room. Playing a doctor, pick up an Inkpot, Forms and a Quill from your bag:
A diagnostic checklist is displayed:
Enter the Bathroom at rear and solve the HOG for 25 bars of soap:
Move the Savon de Marseille soap from your inventory to the sink to wash up. Back out to return to the patient and specify his gender as Male. Open the drawer in the nightstand.

Rotate E twice
Exit through the trapdoor in the ceiling into the Shed. Click on the door at left, then click on the box of tools at lower left. Solve the HOG for 20 yellow-handled screwdrivers:

Microscope Assembly Puzzle

Move the Pieces of a microscope to the desk and assemble them in the same order as you would the physical device. When rotating pieces, angles need to be fairly accurate before they lock into place. Pieces should overlap if one slides inside the other.
