Does this expand/deliver more lore as you advance through the game?
What is the code page for?

Yes, without spoiling anything, it adds loads to the game and is vital if you wish to experience everything it has to offer.

No it doesn't expand but it is vital to the ending of it.

Does The Companion Guide Help Game Play?

I had to struggle to not rage quit this game as I tried to figure out some of the puzzles. If I had originally played with the companion app, does it give you better clues?

Leia, it doesn't really give play clues. It's useful for the end game, and for giving information as to why some things want what they ask you to do/bring them. It's useful for a second playthrough, but wouldn't have given you any more insight into the puzzle you were facing at the time.

I did have to look at a few hints here and there myself. But I'm glad I used the minimum help I could take, even though I long ago lost all patience for puzzles that take longer than 2 minutes to figure out or do.

Agreed. This is a fantastic complement but won't be helping you with any puzzle solving. That being said, play through to end game for the code...

It is unfortunate that this app uses the phone's ringer volume instead of the regular volume, so your choice when playing amounts to either missing calls later or getting blasted now. Not good!
