If you ever come across a door with a different animal symbol on the sides, you can easily solve these puzzles using math. Each of these door’s animals corresponds to a number. All you have to do is add all three numbers to make the number in the middle of the triangle. Use this chart to find out the values for each animal.

Alternatively, you can just remember that the left bottom represents 0, and the right bottom represents 9. As you move up from 0, each animal increases the value by 1. So, the numbers are sorted like this in this picture.

Now use these numbers to make the middle number and roll the corresponding animal onto the “?” and “??” mark. Then pressing the open option, the door will open for you to enter and collect the loots.
