      • Sniper says:

        Phil and everyone died on a dream on riddle school 5 they are supposed to be awaken upon their doom (they wake up when they die) anyway people say riddle school 4 was an april 1st joke but its really a part of riddle school 5 so you have to go and kill your friends by entering their dreams then they wake up after that go talk to each one after you kill them in the dream they go to the escape pods

    • sarah says:

  5. Vivi68 says:

  6. Apanathi says:


    I now got it… but stuck again, cause I don’t know what to do next.

    I already discovered that Show

    but don’t know how to get there :/

    • olin says:

      go to the room with smiley then click the middle of the wall opposite of smiley

    • bob123 says:

      just hit random buttons

    • danay says:

      go to smileys room and click on the wall far from her its a secret door ok got meat alive now how do u make it smell good??

      • pizza guy says:

        Right on. I’m stuck now too. But since the meet is dead.. I figure it goes in the room where you place a dead animal and a live animal….

      • pizza guy says:

        I’ve figured it out! get the tray fill it up with dirt, then put the STEAK in the tray. Go to the operation room put all the screws in the sockets so it starts up (if your one short check under all the beds) Put the flower pot on the alive side. Put the tray and steak on the other. press the green arrow and VWA-LA!

      • pizza guy says:

        take it to the vent … MAYBE YOU SHOULD MAKE IT COME ALIVE ? it was just a guess that worked. But put the steak in the open vent, then press the statue you should disappear

      • katie77 says:

        well, you have to Show

      • baily says:

        well, you know that big monster guy? you have to make it smell good for him. but i bet you already knew that. anyway,if you have unscwred that vent that he climbed through you place the meat there. then he will go and get it. but you must lock him in there so he can’t get out. now go where you want to go!

      • baily says:

        ok, ok what you said is wrong. you put the meat where he escaped to the hallway!

    • aster15 says:

      Go to smiley’s room and click on the wall and it leads inside the fish and then you can get the meat hanging above the pit of acid.

    • Tabuu says:

      go to smileys room click on the right wall

      For #2727 remember to turn on the air-con under the equation posters.

      • LKBrianz says:

        1st tile puzzle

        if a numbered grid:
        1 2 3
        4 5 6
        7 8 9

        click (in order) – 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 (should all be blue now), 2, 4, 6, 8, 1, 3, 9, (should have the seven) 7 (gets you the zero), 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 2, 6, 5, 1, 9, 7, 5, 4, 6, (should be the 4) 3, 7 (the one, you’re done)

        2nd tile puzzle
        Using the same grid:
        1 2 3
        4 5 6
        7 8 9
        push, starting with all yellow (in order): 5, 1, 3, 7, 9 (give you the zero), 3, 4, 6 (gives you the 1), 3, 6, 4, 5, 1, 3, 7, 9 (returns to all yellow), 2, 8, 1, 3, 9, 5 (Gives you the four), 5, 9, 3, 1, 8, 2 (returns to all yellow), 2, 6, 7 (gives you the seven)

        Hope that helps!

    • BarrelRollMastah says:

      I hope this helps!

    • Sniper says:

      Smack soggys glasses off and click smiley you say too bad he cant teach without glasses so she goes up there pull her legs and shes dead

  15. GetAngreh says:

    After everything the walkthrough has said, I can’t get past killing Phred!! I ask him if he want’s to wear the sweater and then click i’ll stop talking now and then click the thermo stat but all he says is “I haven’t yet deduced good reason to change the temperature.”

    Pleas help me out somebody!!

    • [A.V.] says:

      Talk to Phred and ask him if he wants to wear your sweater. Then change the thermostat to cold. Ask him again if he wants your sweater and he’ll take it. Then just click anything in the next scene and he’ll die.

      First time I did it, he automatically died, but this should work.

    • Vermont says:

      First5 talk to phil about the sweatshirt then look for the note near the desk then click the thermostat

  16. drew says:

    someone help me do the third tile puzzle

  17. lollol hehe says:

    • Vermont says:

      go to smiley’s room then look for the hidden door on the wall then you get the steak which is also the dead animal.

    • danay says:

      u go through the hidden door located in smileys room on the far wall from her then u get the plant in a pot thing put that on live side and the steak in the tray wit dirt on the dead side click button and tada

      • Chucky says:

        Actually, they died in their dreams! If you finish the game, and look at the special feature that says You Don’t What Just Happened, you find out what happened!

  31. cleverriddlesolver says:

    Awesome i thot that riddle school 4 was really the end! phew! ridle 5 is an awesome game and the series has a really good storyline. i like the riddle school games becuz theyre the only kind of escape games i could do without walktroughs.

  32. joey says:

    i just noticed that if you actually read riddle school 4 real facts and fake facts and how they all died, it kind of helps in the fifth one. plus the fake facts says that riddle school 4 is a diversion for ridle school 5, and it turns out it is!

  33. Jesse says:

    I cant believe u just haf 2 die![

  34. Jesse says:

    But it is awsome and amazing, but if that happend to me, I would end up in heaven!

  35. Jessesoto says:

    Riddle school 5 is the greatest game like riddle school 4,3,2,1, woo-hoooo!

    Riddle School Walkthrough – Step By Step Guide


    • hello(: says:

      By the way, step 69 is wrong, well, I typed it in right, but it came out wrong, so it’s just: the first row across – click on the second and third circles, the second row – click on the first, second, and third circles, the third row – click on the second circle, and the fourth row – click on the second circle.
      Sorry! (:
