Walkthrough

Nibiru: Age of Secrets is a 2005 game from The Adventure Company that provides an engrossing story, good dialog writing, and crisp graphics and background effects such as weather and incidental sprites. Puzzles in the first 80% of the game involve inventory manipulation mostly, while a few standalone puzzles appear in the last chapter. Some of these puzzles are moderately difficult to solve. There are some timed sequences in the game, but all are easy, and if you run out of time, you have a chance to try again. On the other hand, there is at least one area where the game is unforgiving about the exact sequence of steps that must be followed. There is also no way to repeat dialog or hotspot information once it's displayed or spoken, so save often. Be careful when overwriting a previously-saved game slot as no confirmation is provided. There are a maximum of 99 saved-game slots. The inventory is accessed by right-clicking the mouse. When an inventory item is selected, it is shown as a cursor which pulsates when it is ready to be used on a hotspot or other inventory item. You can click the mouse to skip through dialog or double-click to quickly exit a scene, but there is no way to speed up the main character's walking.

This walkthrough provides a minimum path through the game; other gameplay sequences and dialog choices can provide additional backstory elements.

Ring Puzzle

Click on the stone platform to access the Ring Puzzle, probably the most challenging puzzle in the game. In this puzzle, there are five concentric stone rings occupied by 16 balls in four colors. Number the rings from 1 to 5, starting on the inside. In the starting arrangement of the puzzle, each compass direction consists of four balls in four colors. These balls are all in the same color order radially outward from the center, so that each ring has four balls of the same color. The puzzle is solved by arranging the balls so that each compass direction contains only those balls of the associated color shown in the small triangle outside the outer ring; for example, the vertical line of four balls at the top of the puzzle (North) should all be red. The arrangement of balls can be changed by moving a ball into an open space, or by rotating any of the five concentric rings clockwise or counterclockwise. The outermost Ring 5 contains only one position for a ball. In the solution below, the Ring number and compass direction are used to specify which ball to move into the open space; for example, at the start of the puzzle, the only possible move (other than a ring rotation) is to move the Yellow ball located in the West direction at Ring 4.

A 50-move solution is given below.

Right-click on the old Mayan map in inventory and click on the white arrow at upper right to show its reverse side. The base-20 Mayan numbering system is shown (they must have been barefoot most of the time). Using this notation, the glowing number on the left pedestal is (3,2,12), and that on the right pedestal is (1,17,12). In the Mayan system, these numbers have the decimal equivalents

Left pedestal = (3 x 400) + (2 x 20) + 12 = 1252
Right pedestal = (1 x 400) + (17 x 20) + 12 = 752
Adding these together produces 1252 + 752 = 2004 decimal, which has the Mayan equivalent (5,0,4):
2004 = (5 x 400) + (0 x 20) + 4
The associated Mayan symbols (top to bottom) are
Straight line (5)
Flattened oval (0)
Four dots (4)
Enter these symbols into the combination lock on the front of the stone table. From the initial display of all flattened ovals,
Left-click the upper dial 5 times

Although the starting arrangement of the puzzle is randomized for each gameplay, the desired final layout is always the same:

Slider Puzzle Solution
A slider puzzle of this size can usually be solved fairly quickly by a little trial and error, but if you are truly stuck, you can refer to the Balmoral Software solver
