Sarah Maribu and the Lost World

  • Page one identifies the different types of cursors available. It shows the custom cursor, the directional cursor, the interactive cursor and the investigate cursor.
  • Page two identifies the purpose of the game.

Game Play

  • This is mainly a hidden object game with some adventure elements. It is linear; you have to finish it level by level.
  • You do not need to pay attention to the story to complete the game.
  • When you start playing, take the tutorial.
  • There is no timer.
  • There are no trophies.
  • Sparkling areas are investigative areas.
  • Hidden object
    • A few times, I had to click an item twice for it to register.
    • You are given pictures of all the items you need to find.
  • Hint
    • Will either point you to the item you need to find or to an investigative area you need to complete.
    • Unlimited hints. Takes about 30 seconds to regenerate.
  • Tools
    • Tools is your inventory list.
    • Found items may be added to Tools to be used later in the game (to either find more items or to advance the game).
    • Clicking on an investigative area will tell you what item from Tools is needed.
  • Tip: I would find all the hidden object items, then I would complete the investigative areas.

Walkthrough – Intro

  • The hidden object list will be different every time you play. The screenshots will label the Tool items to find.
  • It does not matter in what order you click on items. If you click on an investigative area and you do not yet have the Tool to perform an action, you can click the X and return to it later.
  • When I write, “use item,” or “place item,” it means click to open Tools and get the item from there. Tool items appear italicized in bold.
