The final episode in the hood series. Find out where hood went, why she's there, and if she can be saved.

Thanks for all the support guys, your comments have really pushed me to keep working and I'm very pleased to tie this up. I hope you enjoy it.

Thanks to Newgrounds for supporting me through this entire series, it has really meant a lot and I've learned a lot along the way.

If you guys have any questions, let me have them. I'm not the most talkative person, but I will try to respond!

I'm getting a few questions about a similar part of the game, try to remember that your hand icon almost always gives you a hint to as if you can interact with an object.

The bug where the locket and the fire spirit don't show up should be fixed now. Let me know if you find any others!

I really enjoyed this. I liked most the door puzzle before the Cell Room (I love riddle puzzles). Great job on the puzzles; they are the perfect balance of difficulty as all the clues are self-contained and there are no leaps in logic, just a bit of misdirection. It was fun talking to everyone in the spirit world and the fire sprite was great.

I will admit that I think episode 3 was the better of the four installments and this was perhaps my least favorite (maybe because it's the last and I wanted more?) I was hoping for a even greater interaction and involvement here, going into it after the third one. I wanted a longer story at the end as well. I agree with the earlier comment about the blue gems: they were so straight-forward, it tinged the end somewhat anti-climatic.

All told, though, this is a very solid narrative/game in an overall excellent series. I'm sorry to see it draw to a close but I will be watching for your next project(s) with anticipation. Thank you for the terrific entertainment and art!

Yo i guess is as good game as the others hoods or even better seeing all those medals, but well i'm disappointed at myself, looks like this is the first hood game i'm gonna be unable to pass or play because that first puzzle is a total alien to myself, i mean i try making them like path (but i wasn't even sure what that was suppose to be) then i searched for Morse code to check the first letter of each word on the you are not welcome hunter (it just happen h is 4 dots, and y is 3 lines and a dot, but the maximum of lines in the options is 3...), so i tried matching the ends of each letter but that generated conflict with W, so i said lets translate those symbols you have been clicking all this time to change those lines, and found myself counting the curves on the s like symbols, counting the lines and matching the sides, clicking to no avail that map like thing, and then leaving, and said "well if i come later whit a clear mind some thing will show up", well here im trying to match the image with the blue inter lines of the background image made out of bricks, then i said fine lets cheat and read the comments... well nothing that helpful other than im not alone in this world of guys that failed on very first challenge...

so this is desperate me asking you... man just tell me i realized is not Morse code because hell some people made it right away, so the material is all there just tell me what im not looking at, my mind cant even generate absurd connections at this point i even went and try to check Chinese and Japanese kanji for relations... it didn't work hahaha, after that i made some pats using the holes on the lines... im already this time out of ideas so i guess swallow pride and ask.

Hyptosis responds:

haha, you were more correct with your first ideas, don't over think it! ^_^ Thanks!

Ok got up to the second puzzle with the Sun to Soil bit... though not sure if this is a bug or not... every time I click on any of the runes, nothing happens. Unless I am missing the whole idea of the puzzle or my brain matter just isn't up to par with this. First puzzle took a while to figure out what was going wrong. That said, I can not give a full report due to unable to get pass the Sun to Soil puzzle, even the hints aren't helping me much. Though still have so many questions and wonders about the story or universe they are all in.

Love the art work and wish the BG music was a bit more consistent, the long silence periods kind of make me nervous and unnerved due to the silence and then sudden sounds. Otherwise, excellent puzzle game even if some of us are not good puzzle solvers. For me, this was more excellent in the story plot and drive. Sad I can not go further in knowing what is going on till I figure out that second puzzle! :(
