Check out our strategy guide for Annabel.

A note about the screenshots:
In Annabel you can walk to different spots in an area by pressing the arrow keys. In our screenshots we’ve given you a wide panoramic view of each area so you can see how the scenes are connected to each other. When you click on a screenshot in the guide, a larger version of it will open in a new window in your Web browser.

To make the image larger, move your mouse cursor over it until it turns into a magnifying glass with a "+" sign, and click. You can scroll to see the entire screenshot by clicking on the scroll bar in the bottom of your browser window and moving it left or right.

GAMEPLAY TIPS

  • Annabel is an adventure search-and-find game, so rather then having one single screen where you need to find an x amount of items, you will be searching around through different locations, to find the items you need.
  • Also, finding items is not as straightforward as there being a text and you find it. You need to put together a certain item, with other items you can find lying around.


GENERAL TIPS

  • Be creative. If for example you need to compile a rod from three components, look around and search for shapes that fit part of the item you need to put together.
  • Think beyond. Often you will find items you need in previous locations, not only in your current set of screens.
  • If you move over an object and see red sparkles, it means you can interact with that object. These sparkles will change according to your current objective, so once you come back to a location, check again.
  • There is no limit to the use of hints. Once you have used a hint, the questionmark-button will slowly refill. Once it’s red again, you can use another hint.
  • If you ever go back during a puzzle, you will see a logo on top of the screen from this puzzle. To return to the puzzle, click on this logo.


MINI-GAME TIPS

  • Mini-games 11, 12 and 13 can sometimes be different.
  • Mini-games 4, 7 and 10 are always different, so there is no sollution to give.

Pharao’s Palace-level tips

  • Sometimes you will find items in a box. Once you have, you will not need to search in that box again, since each box holds only one usable item.

Now that you have 10 bones, go in the captain’s quarters and distract the crocodile. While it’s eating, you will have the time to find the 4 pieces of the Amulet of Water. One piece is found in the chest, and another under the pillow.

4 extra solutions for the 1st circuit board:

5 extra solutions for the 2nd circuit board:

6 extra solutions for the 3rd circuit board:


Sixth solution and screenshot courtesy of Margie B.

Strategy (thanks to Gamezebo user Elle)
1. Do not connect any of the small points directly to each other.
2. Some of the small points have only one possible connection. Get these out of the way first.
3. For the other points just go ahead and choose one of the connections. You may have to make changes later. This part is just trial and error.
4. Connect the middle section and see what lights up. Look for breaks in the overall connection and fix them. You may have to try more than one way of connecting the large point.
The key for me was looking for the small points that could only be connected in one way.

Priest’s palace – Pit
To get out of the pit, find 10 pieces of steps and put them up.

MINIGAME 13 – Correct order
Place the different colors in order until you guess the correct line-up.

MINIGAME 14 – Mosaic

Swap neighboring pieces on the board to match the mosaic pictured.
Tip: Correct the mosaic one by one. First move one block to the correct color, and then the next one. Don’t try to move groups of colors at once.


PRIEST’S PALACE – Eyes

In the room on top of the stairs, look to your right and check the statues. You will need to find 8 eyes for these statues. One eye is found in the left box before the stairs, and another is found in the left pillar next to the stone tablet, up the stairs.


PRIEST’S PALACE – Mirrors

After putting the eyes in the statues, laserbeams will come out of their eyes, and go through an empty mirror frame. Find 5 pieces of the mirror to restore it.

Once the mirror is restored, the beams will reflect upon clog of the big statue, break it, and stop the spinning blades from killing your prince.


PRIEST’S PALACE – Pilar keys

Go back down to the alter, and click on the top of it to talk to the prince. Click on the little pyramid to the left and a pillar will rise. You will need to find 7 keys for it. One key is found in the right box before the stairs, and another is found in the right pillar next to the stone tablet, up the stairs.

Once you’ve put the keys in the pillar, the alter with the prince will lower. To cut his chains, you will need to combine the amulets of earth, fire and water, and make a sword out of them. In order to do so, you need to solve a puzzle, in which you rotate the pieces to fit the sword.


MINIGAME 15 – Put together a sword

Move the pieces to the right place.


PRIEST’S PALACE – Talisman

When the priest arrives, he goes into battle with the prince. In order to help the prince, you will need to find the priest’s magical talisman. Look to you left, and go down the stairs. After the wall lowers, click on the sign that the statue is holding, to solve the next puzzle.


MINIGAME 16 – Matching columns

Move the third row to make matching columns of colors. The more columns you match, the faster the rows slide.
Tip: A challenging final puzzle. There are two basic strategies, depending on your skills.
1) You can simply line up the third row with the fourth, and wait until there is a match. However, you will be at risk of running out of time.
2) Try and plan ahead. The first row jumps one stone at a time, while the second row jumps two stones.
