Game Elements
Sample Game Scene

  • B. Hint Area/Map – If you choose to use a hint click on the magnifying glass next to the word "Hint" If you wish to go to the game map click on the map icon at the bottom.
  • C. Search List – Here you will find the items you are to search for. As you find an item another may appear in its place.
  • D. Timer/Menu – If you are playing the game in timed mode this is where you timer is located. You can also access your menu here if you need to pause, adjust settings, or quit the game.
  • E. Faded Text – When you see faded text in the search list it means that you will not be able to find that object until something is done such as a door or drawer opened or something moved out of the way. As soon as the obstacle is moved the text will turn back to the normal color.

Hints

  • To use a hint click on the small magnifying glass in the hint area at the bottom mid left side of the screen if you have at least 1 hint available to use.
  • A random item from the search list is chosen and will highlight with bright circles.
  • If you use a hint and there is only a gray text item left to find you will see a sparkly circle form around that item showing that something still needs to be done to find that particular item such as a door needs to open or something needs to be moved out of the way.
  • Hints regenerate between uses and as long as you do not click too many times or too rapidly you will earn a hint after a few minutes.
  • Hints are also earned by playing several various mini games. The better you score at these mini games, the more hints you can earn to a maximum of 5.


Inventory Bag/Using Inventory Items/Zones of Interest


  • The inventory bag located at the bottom left of the screen holds all items that are needed to act upon other items in the game.
  • The inventory bag also holds items such as pieces of paper until you have enough to trigger a mini game puzzle. You may have to search for 20 pieces of paper of 3 game scenes and you can click on the bag at any time and see how many you have found.
  • When in a search scene you will run across items by mousing over the scene. You will see an eye icon next to the area that an inventory item will act upon. These eyes are called, "Zones of Interest"
  • Zones of Interest – Any area with the eye icon is an area you will need to drag an inventory item to in order to proceed in the game.
  • Once you have a zone of interest the game character will also give you a hint. Once you have decided which item is to be used open the bad by clicking on it and drag the item to the zone of interest. If you are correct a change will immediately occur in that area and you should be able to click on the item in your list . (Gray text item)
