General Game Information

  • Hidden Object / Fragmented Object game where you look for pieces of objects and use the completed objects in the game’s scenes.
  • There is no timer for this game. You can take as much time as you wish.
  • Cut scenes and dialogue may be skipped. However, it is not possible to skip mini-games. You’ll need to solve each mini-game in order to move forward in the game.
  • If you exit the game during a hidden object scene, it will return you to the same place you left off.
  • The location of items are the same in every game.


Game Elements

From here you can change the volume and screen display mode (full screen or windowed). You can opt to use the game’s custom cursor, or stick with your OS’ default cursor. If there is too much dialog in the game for your liking, you can turn it off here.

To know what pieces are needed to complete an object, simply click on the object’s silhouette in your inventory.

The circles below the silhouette indicate how many pieces you have found, and how many pieces are still needed to complete the object.

If you’re stuck and have no idea what to do next, click on the journal. It tells you what objects need to be found and where to use them in a scene.

The green level completion bar shows you your progress for the current scene.

If you can’t locate an object piece, click on a hint. You’re given 6 hints for every level – 3 blue hints, which can only be used for blue silhouetted objects, and 3 red hints, which can only be used for red silhouetted objects.

You can also earn hints by clicking on the medallions on either side of the screen. To earn blue hints, you’ll need to click on the right match from a group of floating Latin words. To earn red hints, you’ll need to click on ghosts that match those shown in the center.

If you click on a wrong word or ghost, the cursor moves around wildly. You need to find all words or ghosts before the time is up on the meter.



Note: In this walkthrough, the objects are color-coded. The silhouette in the inventory is highlighted a particular color, and its corresponding object piece in the scene is encircled with the same color.
