Overview of area

The numbers in brackets are grid references.
[*] Denotes a mandatory obstacle that the player has to overcome.
All other obstacles are optional, but they possess an ‘irresistible quality’ due to the secrets they hide.
In addition to the mandatory obstacles, as the map shows, the player will have to complete at least two blocking puzzles in order to pass through.

Main areas

  • Reception (A8–D9) - The player begins here. Librarians lurk behind the desk. The small space allows the player to establish his/her bearings.
  • Main area (A7-T9) – Switching to the giant size can allow the player to plot a route through this maze. The hidden items will encourage careful exploration.
  • Desk area (R1 – T7) – If the giant player can smash all the boarding, then this area will become filled with spectacularly amazing colour lights, which can be used to uncover hidden messages (refer to the reading desks section).
  • Staircase (S8 – T10) - Another spectacular splendour, this staircase leads to the upstairs area. Its elaborate size and beauty will act as a navigational aid.

Secret Rooms

  • Secret Room 1 (E10-F10) - This room is accessible from the janitor’s room, but the door will only open if the player can touch the appropriate book in the main area (it is hidden in the bookcase in D7). The room initially appears to be empty, but the small player can access a rare germ gas.
  • Secret room 2 (F10-10) - This room is accessed by touching a particular book in the royal room. The ghosts guard power ups and a human artifact.
  • Secret room 3 (L8–L10) - The giant player can only access this by jumping behind the bookcase in L7. To open the door, the correct book on this bookcase must be touched first. Power-ups and a germ world are guarded by the librarian.
  • Secret room 4 (M8–M9) - To access this room, the player must touch the appropriate book on the M7 bookcase before the book-throwing ghost destroys it.

Locked Rooms

  • Royal rooms 1 & 2 (F8–K9 & L10-R10) - Many items are in these rooms (refer to the Royal Room obstacle).
  • Archive room 1 & 2 (M5–Q6 & M3–Q4) - The correct key is needed to enter.
  • Secret room A & B (M3 – M4 & M5 – M6) - Finding the correct books on the nearby bookcases is necessary to enter these rooms.
  • Staff room (A10–D10) The librarians guard many key cards & power ups.
  • Janitor’s room (E8–F9) - The librarian guards several power ups.
