Check out our tips & tricks for Neptune’s Secret.

General Tips

 

  • There are between 1 and 5 gems to be found in every level. These gems are there to help you find hard to see items while you’re playing the game. They come in five different colors, red, white, blue, yellow and green. They can be found anywhere on the screen. Once you find a colored gem it will go into the amulet that is located on the bottom right hand side of the screen.
  • You cannot pick up a colored gem that you already have in your amulet because it will not accept it. If you want to pick it up you will have to click on your amulet, use the color you want and then pick up the extra one. The gems will carry over to the next round if you don’t use them. If you click on a gem that is in your amulet already, the color you chose will glimmer in the amulet itself, letting you know which color it is.
  • Each gem has a different color and they help you find things in their own unique way. The red gems have a school of fish that circle the item that you are looking for. The blue gem will have big swirls of light flying around the screen etc. but they all basically do the same thing and that is to pinpoint the exact location of an item, the hint will stay lit until you click on it.
  • When you are looking for items, look under things, on the wall, on the floor, things can be hidden anywhere. There will be a few items that items will be either on top of the hotspot itself or next to the hotspot.
  • The level summary at the end of a level tells you how many hints you used, how many gems could be found in the scene and if you found them all. It also shows you a map of how far you are into the game and gives you the overall length of your game up to that point.
  • You cannot go back and replay whichever level you like. If you want to repeat some levels you will have to start from the beginning.
  • Most levels consist of 3 puzzles, by the start of the 3rd puzzle you will be prompted to find broken pieces of various artifacts. These artifacts once pieced together must be used in various hotspots in a scene. The hotspots are areas that will be highlighted when you run your cursor over it, you have to place a completed item from your inventory on the hotspots.
  • Some hotspots are very easy to see and others are so tiny that it could take a while to find. The best way to find a hard to see hotspot is to take a completed piece and run it over the screen until you see it light up. You could also do it by just running your cursor over it but that takes longer to do since the cursor only covers a small area at a time.
  • Some hotspots may not be visible at the beginning, in level 14 of the “Library: Lobby” the hotspot is not revealed until a bookcase is moved and only then will you see the hotspot in between the books of the back bookcase.
  • When looking for broken pieces some items may not be visible until you perform another action. For example, on level 10 “Theatre: Changing”, the last piece of the torn picture is not visible until you break open the vase with the completed hammer.
  • Too much random clicking will result in the screen getting foggy thus making it harder for you to see the items. I actually found that it could help you see really dark objects if you time it just right. If you look at the scene when the fog is clearing up, items that are in dark places become easier to see. You can look at the meter on the top of the page and judge how close you are getting to the scene fogging up.
  • There is no time limit in the game, you can take your time and not be stressed by a meter that is going down fast. I usually like timers but I found it relaxing knowing that I did not have to hurry.If you want to know how long it took you to complete the game, you can look at the level summary that shows up at the end of every level. 

    SPOILER ALERT!!! Here is a walkthrough for all the levels in which you have to find broken pieces and place them in the appropriate hotspots. If you don’t want to know the solutions, please stop reading now.

     

    The objects highlighted in yellow in the screenshots are the broken pieces that need to be found. Anything that you see highlighted in red are the “hotspots”.When you see a yellow arrow pointing towards something, that means that a complete item or a fragment of an item that you are looking for is inside of whatever the arrow is pointing to. It is usually the last piece of an item that is not visible until other actions have been performed.
