This will be a growing / living document based on the FAQs I get about the game.
Professor Crackbrain - And the awakening of the weredog is a classic point and click game. The main point of the game is to figure out the puzzles! Like in the old days, where people sometimes were stuck for a while on some points in the game until they found the solution, I highly recommend not to just look up every puzzle here.

Part 2: Get into the mansion

Where can I find the key to the front door?
Step 1: Jerry does not see a reason to climb into the well. Use the crack of the well to lift up the bucket.

Take the bucket. If you investigate the bucket in the inventory (look at) you will find the key chain to the front door.
Step 2: Finding the key chain gives Jerry a reason to climb down and look for the key inside the well.
Step 3: Now push the bones that lie on the floor to find the key to the front door.

How do I get into the house from the backyard?
Step 1: Pickup the stones that block the wheels of the dumpster.
Step 2: Push the dumpster to get access to the basement windows that is already partly open due to the cable.
Step 3: Use the screwdriver to lever the window open.
Step 4: Switch to Mike to crawl into the window.
Step 5: Switch to Jay to give Mike a kick.


Part 3: Get into the lab

I managed to get into the mansion. What to do next?
Step 1: First thing you should do is to reunite with Mike. He will tell you what has to be done next.
Step 2: As stated by Mike, Bobby is in the lab behind the security door.
To get him out you need to steal Rogy's keys and find the code for the keylock.

How can I open the basement door?
Step 1: The door is locked and there is no key for it in the basement. So Jay or Jerry have to help.
Sometimes the solution is right in front of your eyes. You might give the key that hangs next to the door a try.

How do I get into the attic?
Step 1: You need to become friends with the man-eating plant.

Go to the kitchen and get her the Cola Pepisola from the fridge
Step 2: Once the plant is not hungry anymore, you can move her underneath the attic hatch.
Step 3: Get some radioactive water from the bathtub (Using the Jar or the fixed Bucket) and give the plant some fertilization.
Step 4: Now you can climb up on the plant and open the hatch.

How do I get the keys for the chain lock of the security door?
Step 1: As you might have seen and as Mike explains, the keys are at Rogys pants.
To lure Rogy out of the Lab you have to unplug the lightning catcher in the backyard.

This is only possible after you reunited with Mike in the basement
Step 2: If you talk into the filler-neck of the heating in the basement the voice will echo in the pipes.
Step 3: To send your voice to other rooms you have to add the pipe-piece / pipe-connector in the pipe gaps in the basement.
Step 4: Connect the piping so you voice is transmitted to the hall.

Goal is to lure Rogy in the corner when he is on his way through the house
Step 5: As stated by your player the voice is not loud enough.

Use the horn from the gramophone in the parlor to amplify.
Step 6: Place one player upstairs, take the gargoyle and mount the axe instead on the bracket -

(See also: how to get the axe).
Step 7: Now, if you talk into the horn after Rogy left the basement he will look for the source of the voice in the Hal.
Step 8: Switch to the player who waits upstairs, and push the axe. The axe will cut the key from Rogies pants.

I was thrown into the dungeon. How to get out?
Step 1: Check the back wall, there is a loose brick that you can pick up.

Step 7: Mount the other end of the chain to the vent.
Step 8: Use the handle of the medieval rack to pull the vent out of the wall.

You are a free man.

Part 4: Get Bobby back

How can I provide evidence to the police?
Step 1: You have to find Professor Crackbrain's journal / diary. There he noted down his evil plans.
Step 2: The journal is stored in the hidden safe behind the big painting in his bedroom.
Step 3: The code for the safe was written at the mirror in the bathroom.

You have to find a way to make it visible again.
Step 4: Setup the piping in the basement so that the steam will go to the heating in the bathroom.
Step 5: Refill the piping (filler neck) to increase the amount of steam, by using the jar or the fixed bucket with the tap in the bathroom
Step 6: The steam still escapes through the broken bathroom window. You have to close the shutters.
