Caladuril, Flame of Light

Hints and Tips



Two sections are presented. The first is a list of hints arranged in order of storyline. If you get stuck, scan down this list until you see the first thing that helps you get unstuck. Use your browser's scroll bars carefully, to avoid seeing further hints that might spoil the game for you. The second section is a full walkthrough. It presents a step-by-step solution for the entire game, including all the extras thrown in for fun.

The hints are given in natural english language. It is left up to you to convert these into the shorthand actions of the game.


Jump down to the Walkthrough



At the Start

Head South and find the tree that's closest to the river's edge called the Tall Oak.

Climb Oak.

Tie the rope to the bucket.

Lower the bucket from the branch that's over the water.

Douse the fire.

Unroll the bridge. (You'll need the Lever.)

Jump the gap.

Unlock the chest.

Spray the bug.

Climb the creeper.


Beyond the Twin Trees.

Go South to the Fortress Door and enter it.

Go down the hole.

The torch can be lit with the Tinder Box.

 Use the lit torch to get past the green slime.

The bridge needs to be secured before you can cross it.

To make the rope swing over to you, burn through it.

To burn through the rope, fill the trough with oil and light it.

Use the hammer to hit the pins that hold the bridge together.

Be sure to take the salt over the bridge with you.

Salt melts ice.

The Heavy Iron Door does melt when you pour the acid on it, but this does not mean that that's what you're supposed to do. Look very carefully just above the Heavy Iron Door.

You may pass directly through the illusory rock just above the Heavy Iron Door.

Be sure to unlock the granite door with the granite key before you use the brass key on the gate.

You must be carrying the amulet to get beyond the knives that slice you near where you came in.


Back in the Fortress

Your new strength will enable you to open the door.

You are on your own for the arrow maze section.

Persevere, and use SAVE often.


Beyond the Fortress

Use the boat

Enter the Obsidian Door


Within the Castle of Silmnoleh

Look at the Gargoyle.

Use the eye as a lens to cut the rope.

Use the tail to raise the grate.

Tie the rope to the hook and climb rope.

Drop the wooden shield near the deep chasm.

Turn the switch before you disable the generator.

Pour the sugar into the generator to disable it.

Put the iron shield in the acid.

Use the gloves to get the glass key out of the acid.

Smash the table with the hammer to get planks to cross the chasm.

Use the pouch to retain the white powder into which the glass hatch disintegrates.

If you are holding the feather, you may fall harmlessly down the chasm.

Take the Lever, the Pouch of powder and the Grate with you through the teleport maze.

Turn the valves with the lever.

Touch the triangle.

Refer to the walk-through if you need help crossing the electrified chessboard.

Of the three doors that the key opens, open only the top and bottom ones.

Put the sign on the projecting rock opposite the guard, and he will scoot over to watch the corner.

You may now take the sign that says no admittance, and the guard will let you pass.

Since you can't take anything through the crack, put the boot protector on the conveyor belt.

Put the grate between the posts, which will filter the dirty robe out from within the amoeba.

You must be wearing a clean white robe to pass through the room with all the clean white guards in it.

Use the powder from the glass hatch and the washing machine to wash the dirty robe clean.

Remove your robe before you take the magnet through the nearby cavern, since junk within the balloon will fall and dirty the robe.

Be sure to use the boot protector before you try to take the boots through the room with the boot solvent in it.

You may now walk unscathed across the chessboard, because the boots will insulate you from the electrified floor.


Below the Castle of Silmnoleh

Unravel the sweater.

Tie the wool to the bell.

Tie the wool to the toy.

Hang the bell on the hook.

Wind up the toy and put it down.

Go around and pull the string.

Consign Silmnoleh to the same fate you almost suffered by switching the two swords.

You must be wearing the gloves to handle Morduril.

If you need more help, read the Walk-through.

Throughout this section, italics represent the names of objects you will find in the game, and bold characters give the commands as you must execute them at that point.

In the Shrine of Mulromar (the first underground section)

Go a little North and East. Get torch. Go back a little west then all the way North until you see the Heavy iron door. To the East there are two passages leading east and south. Go down the South facing passage and Get salt. Go back out and head North to the bridge. Drop salt near the bridge. To the East of the bridge there are two passages leading east.

In the Arrow Maze.

This section requires no tricks, just the co-ordination of an octopus flying a helicopter and playing bagpipes at once. The only useful advice we can give is to Save the game repeatedly (or use the auto-save feature) and to persevere; for it is possible! Once the arrow maze is completed, Go door.

Head West and Go boat

Just above where you ducked in before is the sensitive spot that sets off the crossbow. Go North until you trigger it, then immediately back South and duck into the wall. After the arrow has passed, go immediately North again before the crossbow can reload. Now that you are back near the Iron shield, go East to the Grey door. Unlock door. Get key and sugar.

The above section must be completed without getting within line-of-sight of Silmnoleh, and before he comes back from the dumb waiter.

Silmnoleh will now return and mistakenly pick up Caladuril instead of Morduril, and be destroyed by the warring forces of Light and Dark within him. You have now completed Caladuril Flame of Light and are ready for a real challenge: Caladuril 2: Weatherstone's End.
