Archaica: The Path of Light Walkthrough (Pictures)

For a game with such simple mechanics as Archaica: The Path of Light, these puzzles are deceptively hard, aren't they? Are you on one puzzle that just really stumped you and that you want over with? Well I have every solution for every puzzle of every level solved and laid out for you right here!

Archaica:  The Path of Light Walkthrough

Introduction

Archaica:  The Path of Light is a simple game with some of the most difficult puzzles I have ever come across.  One particular achievement is to go a whole realm without using a hint.  Either I'm bad at puzzle games or that one just isn't going to happen.  Well perhaps with this handy dandy little guide you can succeed where I have failed.  I solved all of the puzzles and I have the solutions here for you!  I have not only the solutions to complete the puzzles, but how to get the Stone Keys as well!

There are a lot of pieces to this game and so there are a lot of pictures, I will be sorting these by realms and levels in the order you play them.  I have sorted the levels in order, so use CTRL + F to find whatever levels you may need a hand with.

The Ring of Initiation

This is the tutorial ring and consequently the most basic.  Because I am doing this retrospectively and this is a ring, I'm just hoping I go in the right order.

Two Peaks – Puzzle 2

This level introduces you to a new tool whose name I couldn't tell you, at this point my almanach entries were still for the cells and sacred spots.  I'll just call it a transformer because, like an electrical transformer, it strengthens the light so it can keep going.  The light sometimes has a more limited range, and if that's the case you need one of these transformers to be sure you can reach the goals.

Mountain Path – Puzzle 1

In this level, we are introduced to a new tool:  The Beam Breaker.  That's a fancy name for the mirror that bends the light to a 45 degree angle as opposed to the normal 90 degrees.  As you can see from the solution, you can use this to bend two different beams at once, which becomes useful later on.  This will show up in almost every level from here on in even if they seem like they won't work, so be sure to familiarize yourself with these.

Part 2 introduces a very important side objective:  The Stone Keys.  The hints the game can give you help you solve the puzzles to move forward, but as far as the keys go you are on your own.  It's important to note that these keys can only be unlocked in one direction, it will not work if you try to go diagonally into the keys it will not work.

The Line of Sleeping Giants (Part 1)

This stage showcases the teleporter.  This one will be utilized in many future puzzles.  When the light goes into one teleporter, it continues out of ALL other teleporters.  For example, if there were three teleporters and you shot a beam into the bottom of one, it would come out of the top of the other two.
