Ancient Spirits – Columbus’ Legacy: Game Introduction

Welcome to the walkthrough for Ancient Spirits – Columbus’ Legacy on Gamezebo. Ancient Spirits – Columbus’ Legacy is a hidden object game for the PC created by cerasus.media. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints, and a strategy guide to complete Ancient Spirits – Columbus’ Legacy.

General Information

  • The game can be played in normal mode or expert mode. In normal mode, blue sparkles will appear over areas that should be visited next, and yellow sparkles appear on objects that can be moved in hidden object scenes. On expert mode, there are no blue or yellow sparkles.
  • The aim in the hidden object scenes is to find all of the objects on the list. Many of the objects on the list are random each time the game is played, although some of the objects will be added to the inventory when they are found and these are always in the same place. The objects on the list will appear as text or images, and occasionally there are instructions where the objects must be found in the correct order.
  • There is an option in some of the scenes to play with scrolling mode on or off. With scrolling mode on, move the mouse cursor to the edges of the screen to look left or right. This walkthrough is written with the scrolling mode turned off as it is easier to identify the objects in the hidden object scenes.
  • The excavation brush at the bottom-left corner of the screen will give hints on what needs to be done next on normal locations, or show the location of an object in hidden object scenes. Once the brush has been used, 100 seconds needs to pass before the brush can be used again.
  • There are various mini-games encountered in the main game, with aims such as removing boards in the correct order or stacking books correctly. The mini-games can be skipped by pressing the Skip button 30 seconds after the mini-game starts.
  • The task button at the bottom of the screen displays the current objects that need to be found in a scene.
  • The backpack button at the bottom of the screen shows any objects that have been collected in the game. Objects are usually used on other objects in a location, although occasionally objects can be combined with other objects in the backpack to make a new object.
  • As you progress through the game, icons will be added at the bottom-right corner of the screen. Dark areas can be illuminated with the flashlight and other world areas (accessed through the portals) can be viewed through the goggles. The diving suit and armor icons are accessed later on in the game.
