Yes, that's a Japanese CTR ring shield cut in half...

Well, this was my first foray into the Unlock! system. I played the tutorial, then this. I have to say it was pretty confusing especially when the main weapon was constantly referred to in French. (Okay, after a minute of confusion I figured it out)

But...

I never could figure out how to block the arrows with the shield. I read both hints about only 4 arrows hitting you and using your shield. I actually traced the trajectories with straight lines and found 4 arrows hitting my helm and 2 striking me in the chest. Okay, so what is the math with the shield that takes you further into the adventure to a new card?!? After 10-15 minutes of struggling with that, I just turned cards over and "played" through the rest. Anti-climatic for sure. Also found the final bow shot crossed right through the area between the 6/7 for the 3rd number so I missed on my first shot choosing the 6. I was not impressed.

Which weapon were you referring to? The Temple of Ra had French words for the English version but I didn't have any issue with the translation in this scenario.

The bottom arrows are blocked by the rocks.

If you're still stuck, here's the solution we used. Green lines are the misses; red are the hits:

I got stuck at the exact same point and I'm still not quite sure I follow what to do next after your above clue.

Spoiler (click to reveal)
The app only let me enter three numbers on the machine so I'm not sure how the four arrows helps.


Lesson learnt for me is to print in better quality, as I often couldn't see hidden clues!

Tip 1:

As on the Rules Reminder card, "MACHINES are puzzles you can solve in the application. Press the correct buttons to get a RED NUMBER (to be combined with a BLUE NUMBER)."

Tip 2:

Press these arrows on the app.



and then press OK.


Tip 3:

After pressing OK, you'll get this red number.

Thank you, I really appreciate the help!

I just realised that I needed to type the card number into the machine button - I thought I needed to type the answer into it, as some sort of code! Now it makes sense...

You're not the first person I've seen that's been stumped by the machine mechanic. It's not called out very well unless you've played or heard about the second set of Unlock! scenarios.
