While going down, you should be careful, because the pipe leads you to the window of the guards and they may watch you and put you behind the cage once again, in that case, all of your work will be wasted. So whenever you find a security guard standing near the window, stop until the guard leaves.

Distract Guards and Security Lights

After crossing the guard window, you find a light moving randomly on the wall to confirm no one is trying to escape. So stop your character going down whenever you find light coming toward you.

After that, you find a door equipped with a security lock, and you need a passcode to open it, so try to reveal the passcode. You don’t need to worry if you stuck, as the security code is “845760.”

Turn off the Exit Light

Before leaving the room, the works you have to complete is to collect a bucket and turn off the exit light as someone may not catch you against while you are escaping. Therefore, turning off light would be a great idea. After leaving the room, you find Frank awaiting you, who said that all challenges parts had been over.

Final Scene

The final scene shows you sailing the boat in the sea full of sharks. Upon colliding with sharks, some leakages happened in your boat; now you must do double jobs to make your escape successful; if not so, the hungry sharks will eat you within no time. Use a bucket you collected from the breaker room to collect from the boat and throw the water to the river. Once you reach the seashores, cover up all the evidence and escape to enjoy your freedom.
