You trudge along the dark, rocky coast looking for shelter from the raging storm. Soaked to the bone, you look up to see a brilliant beam of light pierce the curtains of rain. A lighthouse! But suddenly and inexplicably, the light shut off. You glance out into the water and see a ship. It is heading right for the cliffs! You realize that it is up to you to head to the top of the lighthouse and turn it on again before the ship crashes on the cliffs! But there are many puzzling obstacles stand in your way...
In Exit: The Game + Puzzle – The Deserted Lighthouse, there are riddles within riddles, buried within four 88-piece jigsaw puzzles. Like other Exit titles, The Deserted Lighthouse has no game board and also has no riddle cards. Instead, there are four jigsaw puzzles that you will find and complete, one at a time. Each completed puzzle reveals a location with more riddles to decipher.
In EXIT The Game: The Deserted Lighthouse, you must work to solve the riddles and get to the lighthouse’s top to activate its beacon, saving the approaching ship before it smashes against the rocks and sinks to the bottom of the sea.
Only this time it’s different because there are riddles within riddles hidden in the puzzles. Like the other EXITs before it, this game comes with no game board! But it also has no cards; instead, in this latest addition to the EXIT series, there are four puzzles, which you will find during play and assemble one section at a time, one puzzle after another. Each puzzle makes an image that will show you what you need to find in the game and what each room looks like.
At the begining of the game, all you have available to you are the puzzle bag containing pieces with a grayish-blue back and no pattern, and the decoder disk. But there are also strange items to be found in the game that may be used to help solve the riddles found in each of the puzzles.
The game is over when you have solved the last riddle and reactivated the lighthouse beacon to save the ship from sinking.
