General Information

Main Menu

  • The Play button starts the game with the currently selected profile. You have the option to play on easy mode (tutorial option, additional help and hints, quick hint recharge) or on hard mode (no tutorial option, limited help and hints, slow hint recharge).
  • The Puzzles button displays all mini-games and hidden object locations that have been unlocked while playing the game.
  • The Options button displays a window where there are toggle options for window mode and custom cursor. There are sliding options to change the resolution, gamma level, music volume and effects volume. Press the Accept button to accept the changes (which will apply after the game has been restarted), the Exit button to return to the main menu or the Credits button to view the list of people that were involved in making this game.
  • The Help button displays three pages which explain the various controls and types of locations that are featured in the game.
  • The Exit button quits the game if Yes is selected or returns to the main menu if No is selected.
  • The Change Profile button at the bottom-right corner of the main menu displays the profile window. Select the Create button to make a new profile, the Delete button to remove a profile from the list or the OK button to return to the main menu with the currently selected profile.


Normal Locations

  • The standard cursor is the arrow. Move the cursor around the screen until it changes. A blue name tag at the right side of the cursor shows an object that can be examined for a short description. The cursor will change to an eye over objects that can be examined more closely, a hand over objects that can be added to the inventory and a wrench over objects where an inventory item needs to be used.
  • Single left click on an area when a cursor is shown to perform an action.
  • On easy mode, sparkles indicate an area which is hidden from view. Sparkles do not appear on hard mode.
  • When the area has been completed, directional arrows can be selected to exit the area.
  • The Map button can be selected at the bottom-left corner of the screen to view the current position and other locations in the game. The locations are marked with a blank circle if there are no tasks to complete, an exclamation mark if there are tasks to complete or a green tick if the location has been completed.
  • The Game Menu button can be selected at the bottom-left corner of the screen to return to the game menu. From here you can select the Play button to return to the game.
  • After the broken beacon and the blue quartz has been found at the landing site, the beacon can be selected for a hint on which area should be examined next. On easy mode it takes 40 seconds for the beacon to refill. On hard mode it takes 3 minutes for the beacon to refill.
  • The green window at the bottom of the screen is the inventory. Items that are collected are added here, and items from the inventory can be used on objects in the game when the wrench cursor appears.
  • The piece of paper at the bottom-right corner of the screen displays the current tasks that need to be completed.


Hidden Object Locations

  • On easy mode, hidden object locations are found by examining blue sparkling areas. On hard mode, there are no sparkling areas so the hidden object locations must be searched for.
  • The aim in these locations is to find all of the objects that are displayed in the list. It is not possible to give the exact locations for many of the hidden objects as the list is random each time that the game is played. Some hidden objects on the list are not random and will appear in the same place each time that the game is played. These objects will be shown with a red border on the images in this guide.
  • On easy mode, two pieces of blue quartz can be found in every hidden object location. On hard mode, only one piece of quartz can be found. If the hint beacon is empty, finding the quartz instantly refills the hint beacon. If the hint beacon is full, another hint is added to the beacon.
  • The hint beacon can be selected at the bottom-left corner of the screen to reveal the location of a hidden object. On easy mode it takes 40 seconds for the beacon to refill. On hard mode it takes 3 minutes for the beacon to refill.
  • Clicking too quickly causes the mouse cursor to move randomly for 3 seconds.
  • After finding all of the hidden objects, a new object will be added to the inventory.


Mini-Games

  • There are 15 mini-games in the main adventure which must be solved in order to make further progress with the game.
  • The four buttons at the top-right corner of the window give help on the mini-game, skip the mini-game (after 2 minutes on easy mode or 6 minutes on hard mode), reset the mini-game or back away from the mini-game.
  • Completing a mini-game causes a new object or exit to appear.

Some of the mini-games are more difficult on hard mode while some are the same on both difficulties.
