TIMED AND RELAXED MODE

  • When you first open the game and choose your name, you will be asked whether you want to play in Relaxed Mode or Timed mode. If you play in Relaxed Mode you can take your time and not have to worry about the clock. There are no penalties for clicking randomly in Relaxed Mode.
  • If you choose the Timed Mode you will have to work against the clock. In Timed mode you get penalized for random clicking by losing time off your clock. When you click randomly Dr. Fraud will appear on the screen and will tell you that you need a random shot, the screen will go dark and you will lose 15 seconds off your clock, which can be a lot when you only have a couple of minutes for each scene.
  • If you don’t complete a scene in time you will have to restart it with new objects to look for.

 

MENU

  • The menu function can be hard to see in this game since it does not have the typical menu button somewhere in the scene.
  • To access the menu, click on the word "pause" at the bottom of the page and you will get the following options to choose from.
  • 1-Resume-It takes you back to the game.
  • 2-Options-From this section you can adjust the music volume, the sound fx volume, adjust the visual quality of the game and decide whether you want to play the game in fullscreen or not.
  • 3-Menu- It will take you back to the main page and you can exit from there.
  • 4-Restart (Just this level)-Click on this option when you wish to restart just the last level that you were on, not the whole chapter. It will give you a chance to try again with new items to look for.
  • Dead Diary-The dead diary is located at the bottom left side of the scene. Click on it and you will be able to read the story from the beginning. The story will only go up to parts that you’ve unlocked.

 

 

 

HINTS/ROSES

  • You will start the game with 3 hints. You can earn extra hints by finding the roses that are scattered throughout each scene. Each scene contains an average of 2 to 3 roses.
  • The only scenes that do not have roses are the ones in which you have to do the anagrams.
  • You can accumulate a lot of hints in this game if you look carefully for the roses, since some of them are very well hidden. The only thing you might see is a faint shadow or an outline of a rose.
  • The good thing about the hints is that they go with you from chapter to chapter so you can save them and use them for when you need them the most.
  • The only time you cannot use a hint is in the scenes in which you have to solve the anagrams.
  • To use a hint, simply click on the hint button at the bottom of the page and the item you are looking for will be highlighted in the scene. If you use a hint in one of the scenes in which all you have is a spotlight, the item will glow through the dark spots, which makes it so easy to spot.

 

HIDDEN ITEMS

  • In some¬† scenes you will have to look for items by finding the items on the list at the bottom of the page. As you find each item it will disappear from the list and the object will disappear from the page.

HEXAGON AND RECTANGLES

  • There are some puzzles in which you need to look for items by looking at sections of a picture. These pictures will either be divided by rectangles or hexagons but they work in the same way.
  • At the bottom of the page you will have 10 or 12 rectangle or hexagon sections of the picture above. You must correctly identify the pictures at the bottom in the main scene.
  • Some section can be hard to find if the section has a lot of things going on so always try to look for slight markings that can help you identify the image, a spot, a special color or curve that is unique to that section.
  • When you find the right sections, it will glow on the page and that section at the bottom of the page will disappear. However, the section that you found in the main page will remain intact.
  • Use your hints on these puzzles for the pieces that are very hard to identify.

  • In some of the scenes you will be asked to look for items by simply looking at their silhouette instead of looking for items from a list.
  • Look at the bottom of the page and you will see the items that you need to look for. The items will be darkened but you can still look at the general shape of it.
  • Keep in mind that when you look for these items in the scene, they may not be facing in the scene the same way as they are in the silhouette.
  • If you have a hard time finding an item, you can always use your hints to make it easier.
  • You will get a few scenes in which you have to look for the silhouette items in a dark room room, and all you can see is what the spotlight shows you. These scenes work in the same way as the regular scenes except that you can only see a small part at a time.
  • In the spotlight scenes, the hint function works really well since the item that you need will glow through the dark spots.

 

ANAGRAMS

  • You will be given a phrase at the bottom of the page. On top of the page you will have some blank slots. Some slots have colors underneath them and other don’t.
  • You must drag the letters from the bottom of the page onto the top of the page so that the letters once arranged form a new phrase.
