Old Man of the Mountain.
Take the jewels from the base of the statue. Now put the jewels in the face of

Cross to the mineshaft and enter to be lowered deeper into the mine.
You are now in a mine tunnel. Go forward until you have a wall in front of you

opening is the exit from the mine), go right and take the crowbar. Exit this
room, turn right, and go as far as possible until you reach a bridge.
Step forward onto the bridge. Now turn around and use the crowbar on the boards

foot of this statue and take the mask.
Use the warrior's mask on the center of the locked gate. Now use the drag icons
to pull down the horns on each side of the mask. Now enter the room.
Click on the girl and then exit the room. When the warrior attacks, click your
sword on him for easy victory.
You now must make you way back to the statue with the protruding tongue, where
you will place the salt rose at the top of the stairs. The game now presents you
with an overhead view. You are standing to the left and must make your way
through a maze of coffins to the base of the statue. To get there, you must walk
on cemetery mounds. Click on the mounds in the following order from your
position: left, left, forward, forward, right, forward, forward. You will be
attacked twice during your journey, but it takes three hits to kill you.
Once you reach the steps, use the salt rose. Now pick up the rose petals and
return to the young girl. Speak to both girls. After three conversations with
girl on the left, use your sword on her. Return to the creature with the
protruding tongue once again, but this time keep walking up the steps until you
find yourself inside the creature.
Click the rose petals on the jar in the wall directly in front of you.
Go speak to the girl again.
Speak to the woman. She will assemble the amulet. Speak with her again and then
exit through the curtain.
Sit back and enjoy the excellent closing movie.
