Runaway: Twist of Fate is the third and final installment of the Runaway series. It closely follows the story of the second game and beautifully brings the series to a close. This title provides the same point and click mechanics, and players will be required to have a sharp eye and keen wits in order to spot all of the key items and make them work together towards solving the puzzle-like situations and pushing the story forward. This is a walkthrough of Runaway: Twist of Fate from beginning to end of the first part of the two part-story arc.

There, you will see a painting that you will have to remove, after which an urn will be revealed. Take the urn and return upstairs.

Go back to where the Atlas statue was and remove the strap using the jack that can be found on the boulder. Go back to the tomb and to the place where you originally found the urn and use the file found within the room to remove the mortar. Attach the strap to the stone block and go back upstairs.
