Yes. I've tried three items there (machete, crowbar and chopper) and I can't think that anything else I have will work.

Sparkles - to get the plunger you need to give the head monk what he likes, but it is hidden in one of Grandad's famous secret areas!
To get through the egyptian door, you need to translate the hieroglyphs

Boo - I have not found anything to stand on either - but that reminds me, I have chopped something down but I don't think I can cut more, but let me try.... EDIT - no luck :v2_dizzy_down:
And yes you can unlock all the chests - the key is there but you might have to press a few buttons to get to it

Have you inspected everything in the room?

Thank you!! I was running round in circles in there, got the key now, and now to do the rest. I also have a feeling I know what needs chopping down but I'll test that theory later....being a Grandad game though I'm probably way off the mark)

Boo - you are not too far behind me - I have solved Atlantis and the blue section, but still need to press Hathor's button, do anything in the pirate area, meet the queen, enter the film studio, get a pass for MS building, kill the jellyfish, get the lava (suspect I need a mask to insert into a rock), find Boots, and enter the locked door in red EDIT and now enter the Irish castle.
I am going to take a break now as I cannot think of a single thing to do

EDIT I have just thought of something else to try, and it has worked!
EDIT2 - but it didn't get me far, and I got called a witch! :v2_dizzy_down: but I have found out you do keep winning on the fruity - it takes 8 goes to be up one coin, but it's better than a kick in the teeth

I'm not...I have pretty much the same puzzles (except I still need 1 token and figure out the coloured letters in Atlantis). Back to running round in circles.

Boo - there is a sign or book that will help you with that Atlantis puzzle, which is made a bit trickier because the letters are all underwater which does affect the colour somewhat.

Jarek - you can speak to and help the guru. And have you completed the puzzles in Egypt?
