Welcome to our walkthrough for Lost Secrets: Caribbean Explorer – Secrets of the Sea

GENERAL INFO

  • You’re playing as Anne Lafitte, the daughter of Francis Lafitte (a pirate who has hidden his treasure in the jungle and wants to retire), but he has been gravely injured and will surely die unless he can raise money for a doctor. You need to find his treasure on 16 multi-level Missions in various areas throughout the Caribbean in order to save your father.
  • "Relax Mode" (untimed) is available when you set up a new player name, and you can also choose Relax Mode later on, by going to the Options Menu. Otherwise, your search is timed by the candles that appear in the upper right portion of the screen over the label "Time".
  • Hints: This game is not at all generous with hints. You start with 3 hints. Additional hints can be earned by clicking on Gold Coins (marked with green circles on the screenshots) found in some scenes of the game, but they are very rare, so use your hints wisely. If you are playing in timed mode, you lose 45 seconds from your timer for using each hint. Clicking on incorrect items loses 10 seconds from the timer. Sometimes the gold coins are obscured or hidden by other objects that may not be on your list of object to find, so you can’t get to them.
  • If you’re having trouble finding items in one location, return to the MAP to explore different locations within each Mission. Click on the diamond near each location name or on the banner with the location name to open that location.

  • "Items Remaining" on the top of the screen is the total number of items for the current Mission, not just the current location. Fifteen items will be listed in a banner across the top of the scene. As you find items, their names remain but are grayed out. You need to find about 90% of the total number of items in order to proceed. Each location has 15 items to find, but you only need to find an average of 13. The screenshots included here usually do not include all 15 items.
  • Note: There is some randomness to the required items in each location, which may vary during each replay (adding to replay value). Due to that and the fact that you do not need to find 100% of the items, the following screen shots may vary slightly from your experience. I tried to average out the number of items found in each scene because after the total number of Items for a Mission is accomplished the player gets whisked off to the next challenge.
  • Items can be pretty well obscured in somewhat dark locations and are often faded to blend into the background, but there are none that are so tiny that you need to go on a "pixel hunt".
  • You might want to turn the brightness up on your computer monitor.
  • Many (OK, most) of the items are repeated from location to location, so the longer you play the game, the easier it is to find them. Note: even though you’re familiar with items, they appear upside down in some scenes, so your brain won’t instantly recognize them.
  • You can’t go back and replay earlier scenes.
  • You may Pause the game at any time by clicking on the MENU button at the lower left.

PUZZLES/MINI-GAMES

Jigsaw/Map Puzzle: Used to advance you to the next mission.  Once two pieces are matched, they will join to form a larger piece.  As additional pieces are matched, they will also be joined. Small pieces might be obscured by larger, joined pieces.

Memory Game Puzzle: Requires you to match the pictures to remove them from the board.  You have a limited number of mistakes before you need to start the puzzle over.

Dice Games: You must throw the dice 3 times.  If the final score is higher than 24, then you gain an extra 5 minutes for the next mission.  If you score between 12 and 24, then nothing is added. If you score lower than 12, you LOSE 5 minutes for the next mission.

Find the Differences Puzzle: Find the differences between the two pictures. You can click on either picture.

Solitaire Puzzle: Match available cards on the pyramid to the one in the upper right corner, either one rank higher or lower, to reveal the cards beneath. Clear all the cards to advance.
