GAME DETAILS

  • The game has 8 chapters and 7 mini games.
  • The game has only one mode which is a non-timed mode so you can play at a leisurely pace.
  • There are no points awarded in the game and no final score. It is played for story completion only.
  • All items in this game are hidden in the same area every time you play the game.
  • There are no penalties for random clicks.
  • The hidden objects are shown at the bottom of the screen and if you see a number above an item you must find that many of a particular object.
  • All the dialogue for the game runs across the top of the screen and is kept in the log book located at the lower left of the screen. If you ever miss dialogue or need to go back and check something you can click on the log book and read all of the dialogue that has occurred in the game so far.
  • There is a hint button at the lower right side of the screen that must have a few moments to recharge in between uses.
  • Hints are unlimited in this game.
  • There are hot spots on most hidden object screens that glow blue and change the cursor to a magnifying glass. When you see these you must click on them to open something or look behind it and more hidden objects from your list will be found in these areas.
  • Once you find the objects in the hidden areas you will be taken back to the master screen and you will no longer have access to that area.
  • The stationary circles at the bottom of the screen hold the items you must find. A light blue color means you need to find and item. Once and item is found it moves into inventory and the circle goes from the light blue color to a dark blue color.
  • After all objects are found in a location, you will see blue green "circles" emanating from different areas. These are areas that the items in your inventory can act upon. You must decide which items must be used in these areas and drag the items in your inventory to the circles. If you are correct the item will melt into the circle and it will disappear. If you are incorrect the circle will turn red and reject the item sending it back into inventory.
  • There are 7 mini games and several of them have multiple solutions possible. A solution to each is included in the walkthrough below. You have the option to reset or skip a mini puzzle if you find it is too difficult. The puzzles are critical to the storyline.
  • Whenever you need to change locations you will see multiple sets of footprints in front of a door with a bright light glowing behind it when you mouse over it. If you are not sure where to go next hover your mouse over all the doors until you see the footprints and then click on the door to move to the next scene.
  • There are multiple areas where you can enter different rooms. The order you enter these rooms does not have any effect on the game. The walkthrough is one possible set of choices but any order will be fine.
  • The game will save at the location you leave off if you must exit and has options to control sound, screen size and quality under the "options" button on the main screen.

GENERAL TIPS

  • Many of the items in this game are very tiny and hard to see so if you can keep the game in full screen mode it is easier to find objects.
  • Move your mouse all over the screen before you begin searching for items as there is usually one area that you can click on and look further inside a scene. Not all scenes have this but it is best to get into the habit of checking first.
  • Any time the lights are off in a scene you will be asked to find a book of matches and a match and drag them to a lantern. After this you will be able to see all of the items in the game.
  • There are unlimited hints in the game and no penalty for using them. You will have to wait for a few seconds to go by as the hints recharge between uses.
  • If you find you have finished all of the actions in a scene but it is not moving to the next scene, hit the "Close" button in the dialogue along the top right of the screen and that will take you to the next location.

GAME ELEMENTS

  • A. (Circled in orange and green above.) This is the inventory area. Look here to see which items you are to find in a scene. Note that the items that are found have a dark blue background and those that are not have a lighter blue background.
  • B1. Note the item has a blue glow around it.  When you see this it means you can click on an item to see inside it.
  • B2. When you mouse over this area your cursor will turn into a magnifying glass as seen in image.
  • B3. Once object is seen opened you can click on the items inside and the correct items will move into your inventory.
  • C. This is the hint area. Click on the compass for a hint and the compass hands will begin to spin. When they are done spinning your next hint has recharged and is available for use.


 

  • A. The game dialogue runs along the top of the screen as shown in image above. You can click on the log book at the bottom left if you ever need to re-read the dialogue.
  • B. Log Book – Shown above in reduced size. The log book opens and you can read all of the dialogue up to the point of the game you are currently playing.
  • C. Here is an image of the circles you will see in the game. When you see this you are to drag an item from inventory to the circle and if you are correct the circle will disappear and you will hear a sound effect. If incorrect the item will be rejected and the circle will turn red with your item returned to inventory.
  • D. This set of footprints are seen whenever you can move to another scene. Click on the footprints to move through a door. Some scenes will have 2 sets of footprints on one page and some will have multiple doors you can go through. The order has no effect on the outcome of the game.

WALKTHROUGH

  • This walkthrough follows the game from beginning to end with some tutorial elements at the beginning.
  • There are 7 mini games some of which have different solutions and this is indicated where it applies.
  • There are multiple areas where you have more than one choice of rooms to enter. The order you choose has no impact on the outcome of the game.
