Walkthrough by MaGtRo September, 2002
Game play: Rhem is a first person point and click game. It is non linear and depends on observations of the environment for clues. Look around, note the different paths based on map, places not yet explored, look up and down on ramps, where pipes or cords go and characteristics of the environment. Only 2 items can be picked up and kept. I would recommend that if you have space in the computer to download the whole game in your hard drive to skip the CD changes in game play. Follow the procedure on how to in the read me file. To access the Options menu on top, press the space bar.
You are in a rail car that passes through a desert landscape, a water landscape, a grassy landscape; all separated by tunnels and finally reach Rhem, a walled area surrounded by water. Gate opens, the rail car continues inside the complex and stops. Turn left and exit the rail car. What is this place and what are you doing here? Let us explore and find out. The appearance of the letter at the bottom bar of the screen (hidden inventory) is an error in the game. The letter should appear only after obtaining all 4 parts of the master copy of the letter and printing it in the secret 4 way tower.
Round walkway building: Go forward until a round building (red lines in map). Press the red button to enter. Go to the other end of the corridor. Top level North Exit - There is a door with another red button. Go forward until the path ends. There is a revolving walkway across the gap. This will be worked on in another area of the game. Turn around, go back to the round building and go down the metal ladder. Turn around, go forward, note other doors on both sides (before the door on the right side, a metal pipe protrudes from the wall) and then go out the door.
Areas that can not be accessed yet: Go forward (blue lines in map), see stairs and go under the steps (clear line under blue line) through a tunnel. Forward, climb stairs, forward turn around and go under the stairs. Enter the tunnel, left, forward, up and go to the balcony on the right. See a lowered platform and another building across - another place to check. Remember this place!! Turn around, right down the stairs and see a purple buttons stand by the cliff side.
Go back and climb the stairs we went under in. Forward until you reach an open doorway. Go forward through open doorway and see a red buttons square stand. Go to end, see a depiction of a floating bridge when water is low and when water is raised and a round tower beyond the lowered bridge. The bridge is down because there is not enough water to bring it up. We should raise the water level then to get to another area.
Stranded: Go back to the open doorway, turn left and go forward. When you make the next turn, a man standing by the walkway above close to the rail car you came in talks to you. He is stranded here for a long time and can not wait to leave. He departs and takes the rail car leaving you stranded. Uh Oh!!
Round walkway building: Continue forward until another lower level door of the round walkway building is reached. Go forward by the fence and turn left. Look through the lens and see inside the building. Go back to the door and see a red button on the side panel with a cross underneath. This is used to call the lower ramp to the door in case it is facing another exit. The man must have moved it since it was facing the other exit to the right you came out of. Press the button on the door, enter and note that the metal pipe seen before is the lens to look inside. Climb up the ladder, turn around, forward once and turn around again. Go forward on the corridor and enter the door.
Getting Around Rhem:
Tower by walkway building: Close the door and see the map of the immediate area.
The brown panel is the control for moving the walkway to the 4 doors on the upper level and the 4 doors at the lower level. The path with a line at the center shows the direction of the top and bottom level walkways and the path with no line at the center shows the other end of the top level walkway. Note that you are at the South, bottom of panel. Press the black button and change the position of the walkway to connect south (where you are now) and left (west based on map). This will enable you to go around to other areas of Arrival Valley. Close panel door and turn right.
The 7 buttons square panel will give the codes to similar colored buttons panels seen while walking outside. Get the codes for the different colors by pressing the buttons and getting a set of numbers with only one color. A sound is heard when correctly done. From left to right numbered 1-7: Green buttons code - 1745, Purple buttons code - 7534, Blue buttons code - 2361, Red buttons code - 5216. Turn around and look at the opposite panel.
The rotating bridge panel shows how to turn a rotating bridge. Press the red button to see a bridge. Press the blue button and the bridge turns. Exit and enter the walkway building. The walkway has been moved and the exits are now different.
Red line goes up to well

bottom level is located.
West top level walkway: Go forward on the corridor until the other end. Open door, go forward and left at the intersection.
3 control panels' site - There are 3 panels here: The left panel shows an I below the screen. When the vertical red button is pulled down, different pairs of wedges are seen. The middle panel shows water distribution by pressing the top button and either of the 2 below it (4:0, 3:1). The third button shows nothing. The right panel is a blue buttons panel. Press L-R buttons 2361. A green elongated oval and a 3 pointed pyramid are seen.
Manhole building: Turn right, go forward until the first intersection to a building and turn left. Press L-R buttons 5216 on red buttons panel and see a purple elongated oval and a zigzag pattern. Move back and turn right, forward and enter the door with mosaic pattern. Place the cursor on the hand pattern and rotate to the right to unlock the manhole cover. This goes down to the lower level and to the path to the water pipes building. Do not go down yet - turn back, go back to the main path outside and turn left at intersection.
Raising the water level to tower area:
Well pump field: This goes out to the right side of a field of pipes ending in 4 well pumps.
Reading the gauges-vertical pumps first time - Go forward, turn left, forward, right, forward, right and see a gauge with the well vertical pipe on the right. Note the double spiral at the center of the gauge. Press and hold the button until the line stops - note the number. Also note the position of the well pump and the horizontal pipe that goes out of it with respect to the other well pumps. Do the same to the other well pumps. From central walkway: Bottom right well D - 7, bottom left well C - 2, top left well B - 3 and top right well A - 4.
Reading the vertical pumps second time - Go back to the entrance of the well pump field and then forward instead of exiting to the right. See a telescope stand. Look down at the base of the stand and see a spiral that ends on the left. Look through the telescope and note down the number where the line passes the vertical well pump (not the gauge). Do this for all 4 well pumps. L-R: well D - 1, well C - 5, well B - 6 and well A - 9. Exit the field.
Go back to the manhole cover building. Go down the ladder and go forward. On the way to the round water pipes building is a red buttons square panel. Press (L-R) buttons 5216 and see a blue elongated oval and a connected db. Enter the round water pipes control building.
Water pipes control building: This is where the water flow received from the well pumps field is controlled. Climb up the ramp and see 4 closed panels. When open, note 3 different spirals and number squares beside it. Go down, left, forward and see a control panel with 0 and 1 close to the door. The square panel below it has 2 lines and when pressed produces a discordant sound. Turn around, climb the platform by the wall and then climb the ladder.

Look at picture of pipe distribution. Turn right, forward and press red square at right wall. This will open the door with a 5 pointed, 4 pointed and 6 pointed stars.
Go out on left starred doorway, turn left, forward and read the green buttons square stand. Press button from L-R 1745 and light orange elongated oval and an elaborate M are seen.
Reading the vertical pumps third time -Turn around and enter the well pump field from the left side. Go forward until the end, right and forward. Use the telescope like before. Look through the telescope and note down the number where the line passes the vertical well pump. Do this for all 4 well pumps. Well A - 0, well D - 3, well C - 5 and well B - 8. Look down on the base of the stand and see a spiral that ends on the right.
Exit the field and back to the Water pipes control annex. On the way, see 2 directional arrows with 3 marked circles on them. Note the pattern of the circles. Go back to the annex and enter the doorway. Press the red panel to close the door with 3 stars.
Open the hidden door:
1. Turn left, right, forward, left, right and go to the panel to the left of the closed door. Follow the top pattern-arrow right (NW, SE, W) shown by the directional arrows outside to open left door. Press the red button to turn the line into position and then press the green button to enter the first circle - see a red button lit up to show that it has been entered. Repeat the procedure until the 3 circles of the pattern has been entered.
2. Enter, left, forward, right, forward pass the entrance, right and pull down the lever. This closes the door on the left.
3. Go back to the other side where the arrow panel pattern is. Now open the door to the right by copying the bottom pattern from the directional arrow outside (SW, S, E). Use red button to position line and green button to enter the pattern.
4. Enter right door. Go to the other room with the pipe distribution picture. See that the door went up and an opening on floor is seen.
5. Go down. Turn left 2x and look at picture of the arrangement of the pipes - last pipe (right side) going in goes out as the second pipe (left side). Remember that the water from the well pumps go in the building into the reservoir on the left.
6. Turn right and turn the wheel valve to get the sound of flowing water.
Go back up, go to the next room, open the left door using the directional arrow pattern - NW, SE, W and back to the main water pipes control building.
Entering the water pump numbers - Open the panels and enter the numbers in by pressing the spirals. The arrangement has to be adjusted based on the picture seen under the annex - the last pipe coming from the right becoming the second after the control box.

Forward and climb stairs. At the First room, see pipes sticking out of wall. At the Second room, see water gushing out. Go back and on the right side of stairs going down see two large pipes coming out of the two rooms above and meeting into one pipe that enters the building to the left. Moving the flow from one of those pipes to the other will make the first room upstairs have water and stop the flow on the second room. Turn around after the walkway and press the button again to hide the walkway - this will slide out this walkway on a water gap in adjacent room at other side of the wall (see bars on map). Go back to 4 way tower.
Elevator: Turn right in tower - enter elevator, turn around, close door press green button and find out that it does not work. Go back to tower and turn right.
To hydroelectric plants: Outside just after the tower, look right and see electrical wires run to elevator building. We need electricity to go to the elevator then. Go forward, turn right, see ladder going down to water and stairs and path to the cliff - must find a way to get there. Turn around and continue forward pass through open doorway. Go forward and then left over the bridge.

4. Note the patterns of the wedges and the numbers associated with it. (See pictures below).
5. Go back to close the window by pressing the square button again - you cannot exit the room without doing so. Exit the room, turn left and enter the door.
Small room by Plant I: Turn to right and turn the revolving silver cylinder. Note the markings on both sides. On one side it shows narrow shaded bars on the first, second and third positions. The other picture shows two towers that have floating bridge with or without a passage through midway the tower. These are clues for the water reservoir puzzle.
Destroyed building islet: Go out the door on the left and see that you are by the destroyed building islet seen when you first entered from the Arrival area. Go forward and turn right. Press L-R 7534 on purple buttons stand to see red elongated oval and a lower case l. Turn around, cross the bridge, turn right and pick the plan on the ground. It is the plan for water flow in Hydroelectric plant II. Note that the water enters from bottom, flows through various controlled flow pipes, through the generators and out.
Go out of the islet, pass the small room, out to the bridge and see a blue stand at end of path. Press L-R buttons 2361 and see yellow oval and U that looks like a jug.
Hydroelectric plant II: Enter door marked II. Go to left end, look down and see colored pipes coming out of circular structures. Study the layout of the colored pipes. Go to the right end and go down ladder.
Get 100% electricity:
1. Turn right, go outside using the metal door and see a control panel that brings water in. When lever is pulled down, the bottom blue bar shows a blocked flow and the right bar goes to the left on the circle above.
2. Go back inside, go down and open circular lid at center of all 3 sets of pipes. The lines are the connections for continued and controlled flow of water. Arrange the connections to get 100% continuous flow from control panel, through all colored pipes, through the 2 power boxes and out.
3. From the large light brown pipe bottom left from the control panel outside - to blue pipe (yellow pipe goes to pink pipe looks like no water flow connection) - purple pipe to generator by wall - out of generator via purple pipe - to green pipe (which goes to other generator at middle connection) - out from dark brown pipe from generator by walkway - to light brown pipe - and out.
4. Go back to the outside control panel and pull down the lever to get 100 % electrical flow.

Elevator and tower's secret room: Enter, close door and press green button. Open door and enter tower.
5 alcoves with clues shown:
Left bottom alcove shows a filled main reservoir connected to 3 small empty reservoirs. In the middle is a circular connector with 4x written on it. At the bottom of the picture are the labels of the reservoirs - broad blue bar is the main reservoir, first narrow blue bar is reservoir 1, second - reservoir 2 and third bar is reservoir 3. This picture is a clue for reservoir puzzle.
Right bottom alcove shows a picture of 2 young boys. Note the colors and numbers of the flowers, shirts and ball. This is a clue to 2 puzzles in 2 different areas.
Right top alcove shows 2 sets of numbers on the wall. Press the red button on the fax machine to turn it on, enter a set of numbers and then press green button to get paper. 275371 gives a chart of icons with some icons numbered. This is clue for icon door puzzle. 446188 shows the silhouette of the boys' picture with another diagram. This is a clue for one of the last puzzles to get the last piece of the letter.
Grid clues shown by buttons stand -
1. Note that the setup of the numbers panel resemble the grid seen on some of the 7 buttons stands around the areas.
2. The numbers that were shown in order on those stands and the shaded square locations (x, y) are: 1 - 3,3; 2 - 3,3; 3 - 1,1; 4 - 3,3; 5 - 3,1 and 6 - 1,1. Transposing those shaded square on the numbered panel it will give 991931.
3. Press red button, enter 991931, press green button and get a chart of icons. This is the clue for the radar valley puzzle.
Left top alcove shows a simulation panel. Press button to show geometric shapes. Press right squares to change the shapes. These are clues to geometric shapes puzzle.
Go to the alcove at the end of the corridor. Press the top red button and read the message of Kales. He wants you to find the 4 parts of the main copy of the letter hidden in different areas of Rhem and enter it on the right side panel. He wants you to give it to his brother Zetais in the outside world. He will then tell you how to get out of Rhem. This is the aim of the game - Search for the 4 parts of the main copy of the letter in order to leave Rhem. The door on the right is where the 4 parts of the letter are placed to be printed out. There is a key icon on the left.
Lower the water around the Tower again:
Exit the tower and go back to the path going to plants I and II. Go right after the open doorway on the wall, forward, pass the green buttons stand and take right path. Just before entering the open doorway, look right and see a water pipe releasing water behind the elevator building. This water flow must be stopped to go down the ladder to the water seen earlier by the 4-way tower.
Other side of Red brick building: Enter the open doorway and go forward to the other side. There is a sliding walkway seen. If there is a gap in the path, go back to the red building by the 4 way tower and press the button on the control box to slide the walkway to come out at this side of the building. The 2 water gaps are separated by the wall - see map. Go forward until the big square building. The right path goes to a tower which is not accessible yet. Go back and enter the square large building.
Square water flow control plant: Go up the metal ladder on the left and see a map. Note that there are 5 entry points to this building. Look up and around to see 2 large pipes ending at the control panel below. Go to control panel on right side of other door. Look up and see that the screen showing the right pipe is connected to main flow. Look down, pull down the lever and look up at the screen again - the left pipe is now connected. This will turn off the flow on the second room and turn on the water flow on the first room in the red brick building by the 4-way tower adjacent to the one outside.
Stop water flow: Go out the door and forward to a post with a wheel valve. Press the red button and see water flowing through the pipes, turn the wheel valve, press button again and see the water flow blocked - this will stop the water flow seen behind the elevator building.
Water Reservoir Area:
Go back to the ladder going down the water close to the 4 way tower. See that the water has receded and that the bridges to the tower are down. Go down using the metal ladder (previously under water), go forward, up the stairs and see the elevator building across. Turn left, pass the cliff, (we are outside the map now) and enter the water reservoir valley.
Water Reservoir: Walk above the main reservoir and pass through a floating bridge shown by the metal arch above it. There are 3 side reservoir towers at each corner connected to the main reservoir. Go forward, down to the lower level and see a familiar blue square and bars box. Press the bar and see that the main reservoir contains 6400 units. Turn left, through open doorway and see reservoir tower 2 with 1200 written on it. Look at control panel on right. Press bar and see it is empty. Go back and turn right and see a red button connected to a big pump with an arrow pointing up. Go forward and see a circular connector to all 4 reservoirs, a panel on the left and lever below it.
Water reservoir puzzle - Based on the drawing on the small room by plant I, there is a floating bridge on each of the tower. The water must be raised to the appropriate level to pass through. There are only 4 chances to pull the lever to add water from the main reservoir to the other 3 (clue from 4 way tower secret room).
1. Turn the connector to join main reservoir and #1 at top left and bottom left. Look at white cylinder on control panel and see that #1 is empty. Slide lever once to position 1. Read main reservoir panel outside and get a reading of 4800. The main reservoir released 1600 units to #1 (this is 1/4 of the main reservoir units which is originally 6400 less 4800 = 1600). Look at white cylinder to see water in reservoir 1.
2. Turn the connector to join reservoir 1 to 3, top left and top right. Slide lever to position 2. Look at white cylinder and see that one half of reservoir 1 went to reservoir 3, each with 800 units.
3. Turn the connector to join main reservoir to reservoir 2, bottom right and bottom left. Slide lever to position 3. Main reservoir having 4800 units now releases 1/4 or 1200 units to reservoir 2.
4. Turn connector to join main reservoir and reservoir 1 again. Look at white cylinder and see that it will only take 1/3 of the 1/4 usually released by the main reservoir. Slide lever for the last time. Giving reservoir 1, 1/12 of main reservoir contents (3600) an additional 300 units - for a total of 1100 units at reservoir 1.
5. Go back out and up to the arched floating bridge above the main reservoir and see that water has receded revealing a panel of yellow (9), pink (1) and blue (5).
5. Go to main reservoir panel and see that it has 3300 units. Go to reservoir 2 tower and check the panel to see that it has 1200 units. Climb up tower and enter the round entrance to go through the other side. Do this to the other towers (see reservoir 3 has written 800 and reservoir 1 has written 1100). Proceed to the control panel at main reservoir tower.
6. The main reservoir control panel has the broad blue bar on top and pink, blue and yellow buttons below. Press the bar on top to turn the panel on. Enter - pink - 1, blue - 5 and yellow - 9. Press top bar. Climb the metal ladder and go through passage. Open the box and get one part of Kales' main copy of the letter.
7. Go back to the big pump by the circular connections setup. Push the red button to return all water to the main reservoir and raise the floating bridge.
Go back to the square building and go out to the other door. Turn the wheel valve to allow water to the 4 way tower area again.
Way to new area via the Square water flow plant:
Red brick building: Go back to the red brick building by the 4-way tower. Go forward and look down to press top button on control box to move the floating walkway to this side of the building. Turn around, down and press the button to hide the walkway again (you can bring it back if you want to later, if needed). Go forward and up the stairs to the other building. See that the first room has water flowing now and that there is a door revealed when the water flow is stopped in the second room. If the water still flows, go back to the water control flow building (big square in map) and pull the lever to move the pipe to the left.
Secret passages in square building: Enter the metal door, forward through pipes ramp, down the ladder, go left, forward, right and forward until the revolving door. Press red button. Be sure to turn around and close the door to turn the passageway 180 degrees. Go forward out through door and outside to the tower that we can not open by the square building. Look around and realize that you came out of the other door of the square building (third entry to square building).

Exit and be sure to turn around and close the elevator door and press the curved arrow button to turn the elevator to the other side.
Go forward, pass the open doorway, forward and look around. Realize that this is the overhead path behind the back of the water control building and there is a path that goes to the side of the square building not yet explored. Go forward and left to a telescope. Look through lens. Move it around to see an open doorway by the cliff and the door with the stars with numbers written on them. This is the door by the water pipes control annex - if the door was left open when you where last there, the stars on the door will not be seen. The 6 pointed star -7, 5 pointed star - 6 and the 4 pointed star -1.
Go back to main path, turn left, forward, pass through the wall and realize that you are on the other side of the manhole building and the path to the well pump field. Go down the steps, turn left, forward, left, down the steps and right.
