At all times, it is recommended that you explore the space station for yourself, talk to everyone you can, and use all the items you can on everything else. There’s no way to lose or die in this game! If you do get stuck, though – consult this guide, where we’ve laid down the steps for how to proceed with the story.

Once you’re in Engineering, your objective is to make a cup of tea for Starbelly. To do this, use the elevator to the left of where Nara is standing, and go down.

Tap on the golden panel below the Engineering entrance. Here, you’ll find a puzzle where you must arrange the lowest row of panels to resemble the reference given at the bottom of the screen.

This is a sliding block puzzle, so just slide around the blocks until you get the correct the tiles in their places. When you do, you’ll have a cutscene. Then, tap on the same panel again to get another sliding block puzzle to solve.

When you’ve solved the second puzzle as well, interact with the elevator controls to the right of Nara to go down to the ground floor.

Here, as instructed by Starbelly, interact with the pink cup in the top-left area and place it on the red cross on the floor.

Talk to the glowing firepuff near the cross, and it will tell you that it’s too scared to get its drum.

Interact with the drum to grab it and then use the burning heart in your inventory with the dark blue crystal that’s covering the drumstick. Grab the drumstick.

Go back down and give the drum and drumstick to the firepuff.

Now, we need to use the invoker to invoke the other firepuffs. Interact with the invoker, which is right above the cup you placed on the red cross.

Your goal here is to place ‘keys’ onto the center board, but the keys have to be rotated to the right angle before you can drag them onto the board. The circles on the keys must align with the pink dots on the center.

Here’s where each color needs to be to get the right angle for its corresponding key:

  • Orange: Upper-left
  • Yellow: Lower-left
  • Green: Upper-left
  • Cyan: Lower-right
  • Blue: Left
  • Indigo: Right
  • Purple: Right
  • Red: Left

After you’ve set the last key in, the firepuffs will be invoked, and their dance will heat up the cup. Pick up the heated cup and give it over to Starbelly.

Return to the lowermost floor after the cutscene to get the Firepuff flower sound.

Head for the blue door with the ghostly growbot standing guard by it. You’ll be stopped by a shield, so interact with it to learn what sounds it needs.

The order you need is: Lily, Firepuff, Chinese Lantern, Lily, Firepuff, Bio-Lumi. Assemble a shield key with this combination.

Use the Shield Key on the shield to unlock it, and head towards the blue door.
