You and your friends decide to go on a hiking trip to get away from everyday life for a little while. After packing your bags, you leave the last village before entering a large forest. Everyone is in good spirits for the first few days, but on the 4th day of the hike, you are caught in a terrible storm. Hail stones as large as golf balls come down from the skies and the wind breaks off big branches of the trees and come falling down all around you. You decide to run for shelter and soon stumble upon a small open area in the middle of the forest. In the center of the open area stands an old cottage.
You run towards the door, but see no handle to open it. All you see is a lot of big metal nails in the wood. Desperately, you try to bang on the door and push it with all your weight, but it doesn’t open. One of your friends stares at the door mat and says: “Under the door mat! People always keep keys there! Or whatever it is that we need for this door.” You quickly remove the mat and see a text, a pattern of colored pins stuck in the wooden floor and a silhouette image of a dragon, an eagle, a unicorn, a bat, a lizard, a wolf and a cat. While the hail stones are coming down all around you, you realize it’s a puzzle. Frantically, you start figuring out what it means.

If you’re the competitive type then you’ll love the leaderboard for this game. If you’re a completionist then you may get annoyed by the clue system and ‘one chance’ system. We lost points on one question because we didn’t zoom out far enough. The puzzles are fair, mostly, but Wacky Wheels can’t account for our stupidity.
