Note: You may purchase hints at the store that will help you complete the game if you wish to show some support to the game developer. And if you want get the Ellie experience on your own, please stop reading here.
Okay here it goes:
At the beginning of the game, you entered a building and discovered a girl named Ellie Foster trapped in a room after an earthquake. Your mission is to help Ellie to escape the room by using whatever tools available in that room. There is a surprise element here as the game progresses and as secrets been revealed, so be prepared.
This is the game interface. Top left first button shows the selected item which you are preparing to use, the second button goes to the hint store; Top right Camera button is for you to toggle between views. There are only two views here, left and right. The interface is quite simple, eh?
Tap on the small bronze coin on the floor to pick it up.
You have obtained the coin.
Tap the eye button which is on top left of your screen to open up your bag. Tap on the coin to select it and tap back button.

Now the eye button has been replaced with the coin, this shows the coin is now the selected item and ready to be used. You need to repeat this action every time you wish to switch between items.
Now with the coin selected, tap on the vice on wall to flatten the coin.
You have obtained a coin with flattened edge now.
There's a mirror on the wall which you need to loosen up the screws by using the flattened coin. Tap on the mirror now with flattened coin selected and you will get the mirror.
There's a poster at the corner of this room. Explore that poster, we'll need it later to interpret some codes.
There's a desk beneath that poster. Tap on it until you see Ellie say this: "I'll try pulling the drawers." And with she standing at the desk trying to pull those drawers, tap on camera button on top right of screen to toggle view. This is IMPORTANT as it's like a bug or something. If you managed to open the drawer before you do this, you'd never complete the game as you're one item short.
At the other side of the room, tap on the book at bottom left of screen to pick up the organizer.
Now we can open the drawer. Go back to the other side of room and tap on the desk's surface, you'll find an interrogation list which consist of many names and numbers. Interpret it this way: Read the name initials downward and you'll get O-P-E-N-D-R-A-W-E-R. This indicates that the numbers at the bottom of list are actually hints of the drawer mechanism:
Note: Your set of numbers might not be the same with the above, but the logic to interpret it is the same.
Go back to the poster on wall and referring to the numbers above, draw the boxes on a piece of paper and you will get this:
Connect all the boxes and you'll get: CLLCLC. Assuming that C means center and L means left, let's try to open the drawers according to this sequence:
Tap on desk until Ellie says: "I'll try pulling the drawers again," and make her pull the drawers at this sequence: Center, Left, Left, Center, Left, Center and voila, We have solved the drawer mechanism!
Ask Ellie to check inside the drawer and you'll obtain a trowel. Check again and you'll find this message: "There is M.onStar." Let's remember that for later.
Now toggle camera view to another side of the room and tap on pillow on bed. Ask Ellie to move the pillow away and check on where it was, you'll find this:
This is a message written in hidden ink. You'll need heat to reveal the rest of the message. Now where can we find heat in this room?
Go back to the other side of room and select the trowel. Tap on the floor tile where the mushroom is and make Ellie dig deeper, you'll find a buried human arm with a golden ring on it. Now observe how the golden ring reflects light and refer to the poster on wall, interpret it in a similar way you interpret morse code and you should get this:
We have numbers "106", let's keep that for later as well.
Select organizer that you picked up just a moment ago and tap on Ellie to make her read it. You'll learn that Ellie actually has hair dryer and gym clothes inside her bag. Now tap on the bag until you are allowed to enter password onto its lock
Enter 1-0-6, check the bag twice to get both hair dryer and gym clothes.
Wait a minute, hair dryer can produce heat! Now select hair dryer and plug it into the electric socket on the wall.
Toggle view to the other side of room and use the hair dryer to reveal the hidden message on bed. Disguised as a girl? Murder...? Now our situation is a little creepy, don't you think?
We're almost there. Now select gym clothes and make Ellie put it into the toilet.
Ask Ellie to pull the string which is above the toilet. We have water spilled all over the floor now.
Remember this "There is M.onStar" that we discovered in the drawer? Assuming M means mirror, let's try to put the mirror on the star sign.
Whoa!! Who's that girl in the mirror?! Now we've discovered the girl's secret - Not only that she's not Ellie but she's also a serial killer, demon disguised as a little girl. Eek! >.< Since we know that she's not Ellie, let's call her Crazie for now, shall we? We need to help Crazie escape the room otherwise she's going to kill the real Ellie, but how to get her out?
Now ask Crazie to check on wall beside the bed, and you should get this:
If you know a little about Roman numerals then this is easy for you. But if you're not familiar with it you can always refer to the antique clock which is on the same wall. Anyway, the correct answer is 791253.
Select trowel and make Crazie dig part of the wall as shown in picture, which is just right above the iron hatch.
Key in 791253 to open the emergency exit. We have successfully freed Crazie from the room and saved the real Ellie! Wee~
But... we have a problem, now Crazie is targeting us instead.
You have two options here:
BAD END - If you'd like to see the bad end, just tap repeatedly on the screen until Crazie climbed down the stairs, then you'll see her paying you a visit with the trowel in her hand. Note that you'll have to replay the game if you'd like to see the good end after you've seen the bad end as this game doesn't allow you to save your progress.
For GOOD END, follow below:
Toggle camera view to the other side of room where Ellie is, tap on her to make sure that she can move her legs a little bit.
Toggle camera view back to right side of room, tap on hair dryer to ask Ellie to pull the plug and bzzzz, Crazie is electrocuted! Both you and Ellie are safe, now you may enjoy the good ending. Or is it?
