GENERAL TIPS

  • This is a timed game, there are no other options available. You have 10 minutes to complete each scene, whether you have 10 items to find or 30 items, the time frame will be the same. If you run out of time you will have to start that scene over with some different items.
  • In certain instances there are certain scenes that are hidden within a scene. You will know there’s a hidden scene when you see a light blue question mark surrounded by a box when you hover your mouse around a part of a scene. Click on the question mark and you will enter the new scene. Once you’re done in the hidden scene, click on the "back" button to return to the main scene.
  • Some items are partially hidden behind other things so make sure that you click on items that may seem incomplete to you, you never know what you may find.
  • There are some locations within each scene that you can only access when you see a question mark over them.
  • You have the options to skip a mini game if you get stuck.
  • Look for items that may have more than one meaning, a brush could be a regular hair brush or it could be a toothbrush.
  • You don’t have to wait for the item that you clicked on to come off the page before you’re allowed to click on another item.
  • In order to get rid of one of the items that is on your cursor, simply click on the hand icon if you want to use your cursor again.

HINTS

  • The game has unlimited hints, they only take about 25 seconds to refill in between uses.
  • I don’t think that the hint system is very good in this game. When you click on a hint, it shows you a circle around a random item from your list. The circle is very vague and it can be hard to tell where the item is. In most Hidden object games, the item is usually in the center of the game, in this case it could be anywhere within that circle.
  • In some scenes there will be a hidden scene or a scene within a scene. If you click on a hint and there are no more items to find in a scene, the hint will automatically take you to the next scene so you can find the rest of the items on the list.

INVENTORY TAB

  • There are several tools you can use that will help you find some objects in a variety of ways. Some items in the inventory box can be used several times and others will only be used once. The location of all these tools are explained in the walkthrough as they come up in the game.
  • In this section, I only explain the inventory items that you use the most. the ones that you use only once will be explained as they show up in the game.

Magnifying glass

  • To access the magnifying glass, just select it from the inventory bar. Use the magnifying glass to get a closer look at the items in the scene. You can use the magnifying glass at any time, it is really helpful for finding really small items in the scene. When you want to get rid of it, click on the inventory tab, and then click on the hand icon and your cursor will appear on the page.

Flashlight

  • You can use the flashlight to look for objects in dark places.

Fingerprint duster

  • The fingerprint duster helps you find fingerprints that are in the scene, without the duster you will not be able to find the fingerprints.
  • To use it, simply click on the inventory tab and select the fingerprint duster icon.
  • Click on the scene while the fingerprint duster is on your cursor and it will start dusting for fingerprints.
  • You will have to keep dusting different areas until you see the fingerprints show up.
  • The fingerprints will show up on the screen in a plastic bag once you dust the right areas. They will also show up in the scene if the form of a fingerprint or as hand print on an item.

UV light

  • The UV light is used to find  the blood samples in a scene.
  • In the screenshot, the blood samples are highlighted in red and the fingerprints are circled in yellow.
  • The blood samples will appear like a transparent/white splatter anywhere in the scene. When you see that, click on the splatter and you will see a Q-tip in a baggie appear.

CHAPTER 1-WITHOUT ME

  • DATABASE-Magnifying Glass, Flashlight, 2 Red Pens and 5 Ammo.
  • The magnifying glass is on the chair, you can mostly see the handle and part of the glass. As soon as you click on it, it will go into inventory.

  • The Flashlight is on the lower left corner, it will automatically go into inventory once you click on it. You can use the flashlight to look for objects in dark places.
