You are Harold, a swimming pool employee who accidentally filled the pool with popcorn butter instead of pool water.
Your boss is angry and your job may be in jeopardy. Luckily you have an escape route: the underground tunnel that leads to the backyard of the local movie theater. Unfortunately, you must make it through a maze full of monsters before reaching the exit.
Use the following items to help you on your way: a flashlight, some rope, and some string. Good luck! Go north, then west, then south, then east.
> You go north, then west, then south, then east.
You've reached the backstage area of the theatre. The stage door is locked but there's a keyhole just above it. Try using the string from your pocket to pick the lock.
You can't reach the keyhole because you're too short.
> You find a step ladder.
The steps leading up to the stage are steep and narrow. It would be dangerous to climb them without any kind of safety equipment. What should you do?
Try climbing up the stairs without anything to hold onto.
> You make a leap of faith.
You made it all the way up to the stage without falling down the stairs or breaking your neck. But now you're stuck.
You're trapped at the top of the stairs by the trapdoor in front of you.
> You use your mouse like skills to slide between the cracks of the trapdoor.
There's no room for error here. If you try to open the trapdoor you'll fall right through it and into the orchestra pit below.
Instead, use your mouse to carefully maneuver around the edges of the door.
> You click and drag the trapdoor to the Recycle Bin.
It's still too heavy for you to lift.
Use your mouse to open the door.
You opened the trapdoor and fell straight into the orchestra pit.
Fortunately, you landed on a conveniently placed pile of sheet music.
> You look at the sheet music, it is for the song, "
Pop Goes The Weasel."
"Oh, I'm not dead," you say aloud to yourself. "I guess this means that I'm going to get out of here somehow!"
You need to figure out how to escape the opera house before your boss finds you.
> You see a flute made for a mouse and play "Pop Goes The Weasel."
You found a small flute made for a mouse. Now what?
Play the flute to distract the creatures outside.
Your ears are ringing and you feel dizzy.
Wait a minute...
something seems familiar about this instrument.
Try playing the flute again.
Your hearing has recovered.
You played the flute as loud as you could.
But nothing happened.
Maybe the sound was too high-pitched for the creatures outside to hear.
> You play the flute nice and slow and low.
You tried playing the flute again, but it didn't seem to work.
Try using the volume control on the side of the flute.
You turned the volume up all the way.
> You play the flute loud and proud and improvise the loudest flute song you can think of.
You felt a bit silly making a big deal out of it, but you decided to give it a shot anyway.
You closed your eyes and concentrated.
You've got it!
Come take a listen to my new solo album, 'Mouse Flutes And Other Things!' " you sing.
You're pretty sure you sang a little off key, but you're happy with the results.
Your boss catches you in the orchestra pit.
"What are you doing down here?" he asks.
"Just trying to escape from the opera house," you say.
"Didn't you hear me calling your name?"
"Sorry, I thought I heard someone else."
Your bosses boss reprimands him for interrupting
"Are you feeling okay?" he asks.
"Yeah, I'm fine," you reply.
"Well, if you're sure..."
Your bosses boss tells you his name is Big Money Robert and that he wants to produce your flute album.
"So, what do you want me to do?" you ask.
"I need you to deliver a message to a woman named Victoria who lives in the city. Tell her that she needs to stop seeing a man named Nick and move on with her life."
> You reluctantly agree and meet Victoria who is shopping at the mall.
Victoria, who looks a lot like Angelina Jolie, is buying some clothes at the department store.
She's wearing a black dress and a pair of white gloves.
You're wondering what a girl like Victoria is doing in a place like this.
> You say "Victoria? I need you to stop seeing a man named Nick, he is bad news."
"That's none of your business!" Victoria says angrily.
"He cheated on you with another woman and then lied about it," you say.
"I don't know what you're talking about."
> You dump popcorn butter on her and say, "Stay away from Nick! OR ELSE!"
Victoria's face turns bright red. She grabs a large bouquet of flowers and throws them at you.
You dodge the flowers and run away.
"How dare you speak to me like that!"
> You sneeze and your pollen allergy sends you into a sneezing fit.
"Gross!" you say, rubbing your nose.
"Oh, I'm so sorry," Victoria says. "I didn't realize you were allergic to flowers."
"No problem," you say.
> You have a sincere 1 on 1 with Victoria and ask about her current relationship with Nick.
"Nick isn't very good to me," she says. "I should break up with him."
"But you love him?"
"Of course I do!" she replies. "We're engaged to be married!"
> You lean in for a kiss.
Victoria kisses you.
"Wow, you're amazing," you say.
"Thank you," she says.
"But why did you come to the mall today?" you ask.
"I wanted to find a present for Nick, but I couldn't decide between the jewelry or the lingerie
. So, I figured I'd buy both and surprise him."
"Sounds like a great idea," you say.
"Can I offer you some advice?" Victoria asks.
"Don't go back to Nick," she says. "You deserve better than that loser."
"I'll try not to," you say.
You sneak into Nick's apartment after dark and wait until he goes to bed.
> You replace Victoria's present under the tree with a copy of Halo Infinite.
You sneak into Nick's bedroom and replace Victoria's gift under the Christmas tree.
You also steal his Xbox One game console and a box of condoms.
"Happy Holidays, asshole!" you say.
