GENERAL TIPS

  • You can either play normal mode with a timer or relaxed mode without one.
  • In most parts of the game you have unlimited hints, but take into account that you get less bonus points for each time when you use a hint. These overall points strongly influence the ending of Cate’s story, so use them as rarely as possible. If you are stuck, look for tips or answers in this walkthrough to get as much bonus points as possible


WALKTHROUGH
PLEASE NOTE: The items in the hidden object parts of the game are random, so you might not every answer or object for specific locations here.

Prologue

Prologue – Part 1:

Prologue – Part 2:

Just restore the items in the bottom with the appropriate parts in the scene above.

Chapter 1

Arshtat, Part 1:

Part 5:

In this part you see two different scenes. In each scene is one of two parts of various objects. You have to reconstruct those items by clicking successively on the two related parts. In the screenshots below, both parts are circled with the same color as the whole item on the left-hand side of the screen.

Part 6:

In this part you have to slide the blocks so that the way for the key into the key chamber is free. On the screenshot below, each block has a number on it. In my description I will tell you step by step, which block (indicated by a number) you have to move in which direction to get the key into the key chamber in the end.

11 – two fields up.
9 – one field left.
4 – 3 fields down.
9 – one field right.
11 – three fields down.
key – two fields right.
