  • The Strategy Guide button links to the Big Fish Games web page for this game.
  • The Diary is unlocked after the first part of the game has been completed. Notes are added to the diary as you progress through the game.

  • The Quit button exits the game is Yes is selected or returns to the main menu if No is selected.


Types of Locations

  • Normal locations have exits through doorways to other types of locations in the game, and often there are inventory items that can be picked up and used on other objects before further progress can be made. The default cursor is the blue arrow. Other cursors include the eye to examine things closely and the hand to pick up objects. Items that are picked up are added to the inventory window at the bottom of the screen. Select the inventory item by clicking on it and then select the appropriate object on the screen to use the item.
  • Hidden object locations either show images of objects in the inventory that need to be found, or a list of named objects to search for and find. Move the mouse cursor over the object and click to remove the object from the list. Pressing the hint button shows the location of a hidden object, but one minute must pass before another hint can be used. Clicking in the wrong location four times causes the screen to become blurry for one second. When the screen is blurry, no other objects can be selected.
  • Find the difference locations display two similar screens with ten slight differences, which could be a new object in one of the screens or an object which has been changed in some way. Select the difference to remove it. The hint button can be pressed to reveal a difference, but then one minute must pass before another hint can be used.
  • Find the destination locations show a list of inventory items at the bottom of the screen, and the aim is to place the item in the correct destination. For example, a card would be placed on top of the stack of cards. Left click the inventory item to select it and then left click the destination to place it. A drop the item button replaces the hint button in these locations. To use it, select an item from the inventory and then select the button to reveal the destination for the item. The button can be used again after one minute has passed.
  • Mini-games are puzzles which appear frequently throughout the game. The mini-games have tasks such as equalising the weight of scales or correctly turning the dials on a safe. The skip button at the bottom-right corner of the screen will become active after one minute, and this can be pressed to bypass the mini-game.
