Avenue Flo: Special Delivery – Game Introduction

Welcome to the Avenue Flo: Special Delivery walkthrough on Gamezebo. Avenue Flo: Special Delivery is a hidden object adventure game played on the PC created by PlayFirst. This walkthrough includes tips and tricks, helpful hints, and a strategy guide for how to complete Avenue Flo: Special Delivery.

General Tips

  • Throughout Avenue Flo: Special Delivery you will need to find balloons and bottles. There are 99 balloons total, and 60 bottles total. In the guide below, balloons are circled in yellow and bottles are circled in green. Key items are circled in red unless otherwise noted.
  • Items found throughout the game are not randomized. As such, they are all shown below.
  • Puzzles may be skipped, and hints are available to a small extent.
  • Hints are not available during the main gameplay. For this reason, click on Flo for clues or refer to the To-Do List.
  • You can check the Map or To-Do List on the right side of the menu bar at the bottom of the screen to check your progress within a certain area.
  • Inventory items that you will use later will be added to the bottom of the screen: key items you will not use will simply be crossed from your list when acquired.
  • From the game’s main menu, you can access the Trophy menu. This keeps track of your in-game achievements.
  • Also accessible from the main menu is the Activity Mode. As you unlock certain mini-games during the course of the Main Adventure, they will be unlocked in this mode. This mode will allow you to replay them on more levels at much higher difficulty.
