Check out our tips and tricks for Mystery Chronicles: Murder Among Friends.

 

GENERAL TIPS
•    At the beginning of the game, you can choose whether you want to play the game in the timed mode or without any time limits.
•    You will lose 30 seconds off the clock when you click randomly on the screen in timed mode.
•    When you see that the diary has a red "?" then it means that there’s a puzzle in the diary that needs to be solved.
•    In timed mode, you can choose to skip a puzzle but keep in mind that you will lose 10 minutes off the clock for each game you skip. If there are 2 mini games in a level that can be a lot of time to lose.
•    When you’re solving the mini games, the timer is stopped until you solve the puzzle, most puzzles can be reset if you need to start over from the beginning.
•    You can click on "Solve Later" if you want to take a break from a mini game but you will have to finish it once you’re done looking for hidden objects.
•    Click on the timer to pause the game.

 

HINTS
•    To use a hint in the game all you have to do is click on the magnifying glass icon that is on the right side of the page. Once you click on it, a circle of light will form around a random object from your list.
•    The hints are unlimited but it takes 2 minutes for a hint to refill itself before you can use it again.
•    Since you have to wait for a hint to refill, it’s a good idea to use one at the beginning of a round even if you don’t need it. It will save you from looking for one less item early on.
•    Some of the items can be hard to see when you click on the hint. Luckily the lit circle will stay around the object until you find it.
•    If there are 2 items that need to be put together the hint will flash on the item and where it needs to go. Pick up the loose item and place it where it’s showing you.

•    The Hanoi Tower and the 4 Hanoi disks are highlighted in green in the screenshot.

•    You can only move one disk at a time and you cannot stack a large disk on top of a small one.

•    You cans start by placing the corners first and then working your way in the middle.

•    The numbers in black will be the correct available choices, pick the one that is best suited for that grid.
•    If there’s only one black number when you click on an empty space then you know that there’s only one possibility for that space.
•    When you place the number on the grid and it’s blue then you know that number is correct.
•    When you place a number on a grid and it is incorrect that number on the grid will turn red, make new choices.
•    An easy way to solve the puzzle is to click on the empty squares. When the small window appears just choose the ones that have only 1 black number available. If you find one that has two black numbers available, skip it for now. By the time you make your rounds again all the puzzles will only have 1 black number to choose from.
•    The Sudoku solutions are random so all we do is provide you with a sample solution.
•    Once you complete the puzzle you will be given a number, mine was 49351, that code will be used to open the safe.

•    The first bar that locked in for me was the number one, now you know that the number one is the correct answer.
•    Now you need to find out the correct answer for the second bar. Place the first bar on number one. Now try to see the correct answer for the second bar, which in my case is number 3.
•    I know now that the 1st bar needs to be on number 1 and that the 2nd bar needs to be on number 3.

•    Please look at the screenshots for some visual instructions on how to move the balls around and a sample solution.
•    When you have a word that’s been put together correctly the balls will turn green, if they are incorrect, the letters will be red.
