Survival Island Episode 3 Walkthrough – Distress Signal
Cheat or Hint: You will have to do some of these things in the exact order I do them. You will be fine if you just follow the guide!
When you first get to the island, you are going to run to the right past a big tree and a “keep out” sign. Just past this sign you will see a note above you on a platform. Without toughing any exposed wires, jump up to that platform and grab that note.
Just to the left of the sign we passed earlier, you should have seen a hard hat stuck in the trunk of a tree. You will need to climb to the top of that tree using the platforms to it’s right and jump down that trunk ultimately getting the hard hat! If you are confused, please see the video walkthrough.
Once you have the hard hat, you need to head to your right until you get to the exposed wire, drop down between the exposed wire and you will pick up some wire which will help us make a battery later.
Now head to your right into the next section. You will notice that there are parts to something all over the place, a car or plane maybe? Use the trees to jump up and you will see that a plane crashed into them. Go to the right side of the plane and drop down. In the plane you will find a manifest. After you grab the manifest, go to the very left side of the plane (inside still) and click on the radio.
Something will happen and the plane will tip down. You will fall out and now we need to find a way to get that radio! Head right into the next section.
Here you will see another part of the busted up plane. Jump on the right side of this and it will tip down and give you a platform to stand on over the freezing cold water. Use this platform to jump onto the island to your right. Here you should see a satchel or pack.
Now we need to cut down that tree in order to get the satchel. Head right into the next section and here we are going to find two things we need. A pocket knife and a nail. To get these items, head all the way to the right of this section and use the rock to jump up to the tree and get all the way to the top. You will find the nails in another section of the plane just to your left and you will need to jump even further left to drop down and grab the pocket knife. Please see the video walkthrough if you are confused!
Now that we have the pocket knife, run all the way back to the first piece of the plane we came across (where the radio is) and use the knife to cut the branch on the left so that the plane equals out again. When it is level again, run in there and grab the radio!
Hint or Cheats: Be careful! After you grab the radio, the plane will start to fall. Get out before it is too late.
Now that you have the radio, head back to the right and cut down the tree that the satchel is in. Click on the satchel and you will see that we now need to find a 100% copper penny. This will be used to get our radio to work. Keep clicking on the pennies and moving them until you find the one you need. This penny will look much older than the other ones.
After you have the penny, head right again and we will need to grab the lemons that are hanging from the tree. What we are going to do is use the tree to the right to get up to the branch the lemons are tied to. Now we need to cut this branch.
Once you have done this, jump on this branch and when it gets to the ground, go ahead and use your pocket knife to cut the rope. The lemons will come crashing down and break open. Pick up one of the lemons.
Cheat or Tip: If it does not let you pick up a lemon, leave this section and come back!
After we pick up a lemon, it is time to make the battery to power our radio. This is kind of hard to explain so here is a very short video on how to do that!
Basically you are going to put the penny and the nail into the lemon and then connect the black wire to the nail and the red wire to the penny!
Once you have created the radio you will notice a signal bar in the bottom left corner of your game. We need to head all the way left until this signal reaches 5 bars.
Hint or Tip: When you get to the big gap in the ground, go ahead and fall down and when you hit “try again” you will be on the other side!
When you get to the old radio tower, you will need to first let the stairs down using the lever on the first platform. Then climb all the way up!
There are a few things you need to do in order to get to the top but please see the video for that!
When you get to the top, go ahead and pull out your radio. You will call for help and someone will answer. You are saved! Or are you?
That will be it for Survival Island Episode 3, Distress Signal. I hope this cheats walkthrough guide helped you get through it quickly.
