I've finally cracked Ravenhurst!

Last month I wrote about the two last games I bought over ICQ (because I like games I can play while writing stuff or doing other things at my computer, games who look good running in windowed mode and don't need a CD to run). One of them was "Mystery Case Files: Ravenhearst" which I didn't manage to finish due to not being able to open the final door. Now I have.

Finally I've cracked the last lock and freed the spirit of an unhappy young woman imprisoned there by an insane lover. You can see the final screen of the game below this paragraph (and the corresponding first screen above it). I was actually a) underestimating the lock mechanism (and I shouldn't have, considering the locks I'd seen before in that game) and b) concentrating far too much on the word instead of the keys. I'm not going to post the solution here, because it's too much fun to find it out by yourself.

Now that I know how to finish it, the game itself has become a lot more interesting than it was before ... because not being able to finish the game after having arrived at the last puzzle was quite frustrating. I'm quite good at finding all the objects right now (even though there's some things [and some English names] I have a hard time identifying) and so I've managed to make it on the top of the 'Best Agents' list the second time I finished the game (which was necessary, because I missed taking a screenshot for this post the first time I did): Agent Reet 02:23:45 (compared to the first time with 02:59:45). Little update: the third time I made it in 02:04:07.

That means I've finished all the games I bought online ("BeTrapped!", "Inspector Parker" and "Mystery Case Files: Ravenhearst") at least once right now. Maybe I'll go looking for some new games sometime in the future, but not right now.

I have figured out and successfully worked all of the lock puzzles EXCEPT the one with the negative picture of the little boy that drops down into the box at the bottom of the secreen. The next clue indicates there's a relationship between the hand that appears and the telephone's 5 button but I cannot figure it out. Help.

If I remember it corectly, the symbols on the boxes equal the number on the buttons (for example a triangle means 3 or a hand means 5).
