Game Introduction and General Information

Welcome to the walkthrough for Robinson Crusoe and the Cursed Pirates on Gamezebo. Robinson Crusoe and the Cursed Pirates is a hidden object game for the PC by MagicIndie Softworks. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints, and a strategy guide to complete Robinson Crusoe and the Cursed Pirates.


General Information


Main Menu

  • Play: Start the game with the currently selected profile. If you are starting with a new profile, you have the choice to play in relaxed mode or survivor mode. Relaxed mode gives more hints and no timer, while survivor mode gives less hint and displays a timer. If time runs out in survivor mode you will need to play the chapter again.
  • Profiles: Select, delete and create new player profiles. Up to four different player profiles can be created.
  • Options: Adjust SFX volume, music volume and environment volume. There are options to play in full screen or windowed mode, use a custom cursor and adjust for wide monitor correction.
  • Credits: Displays a list of people involved in the making of this game.
  • Book: Links to the Big Fish Games website for this game.
  • Quit: Exits the game if Yes is selected or returns to the main menu if No is selected.

How to Play

  • The default cursor in the game is the grey arrow. Move the cursor around the screen until it changes. An eye icon will appear over objects that can be examined for a message or a close-up view, and a hand icon will appear over objects that can be interacted with. Single left click to perform an action when one of these icons appears.
  • The task list appears at the left side of the screen and displays the current goal that needs to be completed. The inventory is shown above the task list, with a number to indicate how many inventory objects have been found in the current area. Above the inventory is the map, which can be selected from chapter 1 onwards to view the main map screen.
  • There are two types of hidden object scenes in the game. In the first type of scene, a set number of a certain type of object must be found; for example, finding 10 bees and flies. These objects will always be in the same position each time that the game is played.
  • In the second type of hidden object scene, the task list displays a list of objects that need to be found in black text, along with the occasional inventory-based object in blue text. The black text objects are random, and many of them will not be the same when a new game is played. The blue text objects either require an inventory object to be used or a mini-game to be solved before they can be found.
  • After a hint has been used, it takes 45 seconds for the hint button to become active again. Clicking too quickly causes the cursor to move uncontrollably for 3 seconds, and no objects can be selected when this happens. On survivor mode, clicking too quickly also deducts a minute from the timer.
  • Mini-games appear frequently throughout the game. A question mark icon can be selected to reveal a hint, and the skip button will become active after 90 seconds to automatically complete the mini-game.
