Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events Cheats

Getting the hook-handed man's report card
If you are at an early stage in the game where you feel where you are not going anywhere, try this-
In the actors wing, where there is a switch surrounded by metal gates, stand a little bit back and shoot Violet's apple core device, which, if done correctly, will flip the switch. Go through the gates and get the report card. Take it to Olaf to mark, take it and give it to the hook handed man, who will go away and leave some rope behind. You can then use the rope to operate the pulley device in the chimney, but that's another story.
