  • When you begin a game, you can choose Easy (the Hint and Skip buttons charge in 90 seconds – 1 minute, 30 seconds) or Hard (the Hint and Skip buttons charge in 135 seconds – 2 minutes, 15 seconds) mode. If you use the Hint button, and the clue is to move to another location, it won’t discharge.
  • The normal cursor is a Diagonal Arrow. If you can interact with something, the cursor will change to an Arrow with Gears. The cursor will change to a Compass when you can move to a new location. Areas you can zoom into will show a Magnifying Glass.
  • Click on an object/area to zoom, open or bring up its Tool Wheel. Collect the items and the location will close.
  • Click to pick up items, move them to the Tool Wheel and then click to add them. The correct location, in the Tool Wheel, will expand when you’re over middle of the Tool Wheel or the correct spot for that item. Once all spots are filled, the Tool Wheel will automatically close.

  • Move your cursor around the scene to find areas and items to interact. There is no mis-click penalty.
  • New areas will highlight once current tasks are complete. Occasionally, you’ll need to complete portions of specific tasks, or exhaust dialogs, before you can progress.
  • To progress through dialogs, click anywhere until they’re complete. During dialogs, you won’t have access to the Menu, Hint button or Inventory.

Gameplay Tips

  • Adjusting the Total Volume and Brightness affects your entire system until you either change it, or exit the game. If you wish to hear your system sounds, adjust the Music, Sounds and Background sliders and leave the Total Volume slider alone.
  • If your system graphics are too bright (after minimizing the game), restore the game and adjust the Brightness level, or exit the game, to return it to normal.
  • If you can’t find something, and your Hint button hasn’t recharged, you’ll eventually get a highlight for a needed item.
  • Opening all the available Tool Wheels may hide some items you need. It’s best to work on them individually.
  • Not all Tool Wheel items will be available in the current scene. Change locations to collect any missing items.
  • When zoomed into certain areas, click on the green exclamation point (“!”), in the red circle at the bottom of the task window, for instructions. Click on the pink button, at the upper right corner, to close the task window.
  • If you pick up something, then change your mind, simply right click and the object will return to its original location.
